Wlodimir (Vladimir) Ledochowski: BDV To Target?

Military History Research Office
sees origins of expulsion long predating WW2

To the increased reclamation of the expulsion of the Germans by today's historians says the President of the Confederation of displaced persons, Erika Steinbach MP:


In the final band of professionals nationally and internationally acclaimed series "The German Reich and the Second World War" Militärgeschichtlichen Research Office of the history of displacement and their classification in the historical context condition. The causes and course of displacement in all its complexity and illuminates the historical context. The displacement is not only a direct consequence of the Second World War, but also in connection with the events in Europe before the Second World War must be seen.


It is good that German history relevant institutions, such as the Military History Research Office, leaders in their editions the expulsion of the Germans at the end of the Second World War. This largest ethnic cleansing in Central European history now requires just a technically competent historical assessment.


The now persistently high interest of science and media at issue can be an even deeper and more neutral handling this part of German history expected.


Finally there should be a fair assessment of the stakeholders and respect for all victims of war and violence.

If the Bund Der Vertriebenen leadership fails to spotlight Ledochowski, or participates in any cover up, its membership MUST bring about a new leadership.

From Their Master

From Wispers in the Loggia
Quote of the Day
http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2008/10/quote-of-day_17.html

"Senators, with your kind permission, I would like to offer you some advice in the political realm.

"Eight years from now, one of you will have had a great success as the President of the United States. And you may want to continue in that office.

"If such be the case, please give me a call -- I have a friend here in New York who is an expert at arranging this kind of thing...."

"Senator Obama, after working to organize a community in the troubled South Side of Chicago, you are looking to move up to Washington DC -- which is, of course, the capital of our nation. It may be an encouragement for you to know that, after working to organize a community in the troubled South Side of Chicago -- St Leo's Catholic Church at 78th and Emerald -- I was able to move up even higher: to no less than New York City, the Capital of the World.

"And, Senator, I'm still here after eight years."
--Cardinal Edward Egan
Archbishop of New York
63rd Al Smith Dinner

So far I have not been able to find any news accounts or videos of Cardinal Egan's speech, but only those of Obama and McCain.

Apparantly there's a media blackout, asides from this above quote from Wispers in the Loggia.

Flanking Their Master

From Wispers in the Loggia

It's On / At The Al

http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2008/10/its-on.html

The speeches have begun; livestream of the Al Smith Dinner is rollin'...

In the presence of Katie Couric, Brian Williams, both New York senators, the state's governor and the city's mayor, the widow and son of Tim Russert, Dennis Sullivan, a cast of thousands and -- in his last turn as its host -- Cardinal Edward Egan, the Al Smith showdown went off with lots of humor and without incident earlier tonight.

Lest any doubt remained of the draw of the evening's joint keynoters -- both presidential candidates, in their final pre-election meeting -- this 63rd Dinner pulled in over $4 million for New York's Catholic Charities, more than double last year's take for the Tony Blair-headlined soiree.

Video, etc. to come.

http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2008/10/once-more-with-humor.html

Just a reminder that -- fresh off their tense final debate (fullvideo) -- the presidential contenders will make their last joint appearance of the campaign at tonight's Al Smith Dinner in New York.

Now in its 63rd year, the white-tie barb-fest at the Waldorf-Astoria benefits Catholic Charities of the Big Apple archdiocese. Hosted by Gotham's cardinal-archbishop -- who, in one of his last major appearances before retirement, will be flanked by John McCain and Barack Obama at the center of the traditional multi-tiered dais -- the event takes its name in tribute to the son of the Lower East Side tenements who rose to become the Empire State's governor, and in 1928 the first Catholic nominated for the presidency.

Beyond sold-out, this year's dinner has far exceeded its $2.5 million goal thanks to its joint keynoters:
Political heavyweights will pepper the dais: Sen. Hillary Clinton, Gov. Paterson, Mayor Bloomberg and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

Former Gov. George Pataki, former Mayor Ed Koch and Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau will be there, too.

When [Al] Smith [IV] approached then-McCain adviser John Weaver about the Republican nominee appearing, "He said, 'We'll be there.' I said, 'I haven't given you the date yet.' He said, 'Doesn't matter.'"

McCain spoke at the Al Smith dinner in 2005.

Getting Team Obama to commit was slightly more work: "My line to them was, 'I know you're coming. You know you're coming.'"

McCain and Obama will each deliver 15-minute talks.

Appearing at the Al Smith dinner is a tradition for presidential candidates, with both major nominees typically attending in an election year.

"They say Jack Kennedy won the [1960] election at the Al Smith Dinner," Smith said in his office at St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Centers, which features an array of Gov. Smith's photos and an Obama bobble-head doll.

In 2004, Democrat John Kerry - a Catholic - was not invited, presumably for his pro-choice stance on abortion. As a result, President Bush also did not attend.

Alfred E. Smith, the nation's first Catholic presidential candidate back in 1928, died in 1944. The first dinner in his honor came a year later at the behest of then-Archbishop Francis Spellman.

Since then, it has become one of the premier fund-raisers for the Archdiocese of New York.

Last year, with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair headlining, the dinner raised $1.8 million for charity, Smith's great-grandson said.
From 9pm Eastern (0100GMT), the dinner and speeches will be shown/streamed live on C-Span and Sirius Satellite Radio's The Catholic Channel.

In other campaign news from the church beat... presumably for purposes of, er, emphasis, one US bishop has taken to employing the Democratic nominee's middle name.

Wlodimir (Vladimir) Ledochowski & Pius XII Mass Murder of Yugo 'Heretics'

Further, I would add that without Hitler installing Pavelic in power in Croatia in 1941, there would have been no Serbian-Jewish holocaust in Croatia, Bosnia and Krajina. The masters of Hitler were the same masters of Pavelic---the Roman Hierarchy ruled by Pope Pius XII overseen by Jesuit General Ledochowski.

With the 50th Anniversary of the death of Pius XII, the Vatican is again pushing for his sainthood. While Pius can be legitimately criticized for his tepid condemnations of the Nazi Holocaust there is no question he was complicit in the deaths of at least 500,000 Orthodox Christian Serbs, Jews and Roma murdered in Croatia, Bosnia, and Krajina during the Second World War by the Axis allied Croatian regime.

This is a reminder to Mr. Ratzinger, Mr. Nicholas, and company, that the Roman Catholic Church continually looses credibility with its outrageous suggestions that Pius XII be canonized as a 'saint.'

If not, why then are not they suggesting canonization for Wlodimir Ledochowski?

Why do they act -- via omission -- that Ledochowski is a supreme embarrassment?

"Rev. Debold is a recent contributor to "Cults, Sects, and the New Age," edited by fellow AFF Advisory Committee member Rev. James LeBar. Totally on his own account, Rev. Debold has published on cults in The Journal of Dharma (Bangalore, India), and in AFF's Cult Observer and Cultic Studies Journal. He is currently preparing a "pre-conference" session for clergy on the occasion of next October's Cult Awareness Network national convention. He is in fact associated with the New York/New Jersey affiliate of CAN and the representative of the Newark Archdiocese on the New York Interfaith Coalition of Concern About Cults, the first such interfaith association in the United States."

http://www.icsahome.com/infoserv_profile/debold_walter.asp

The Above mentioned "AFF" stands for American Family Foundation (Sounds so nice!).

"AFF's official history claims it was founded in 1979 by a concerned parent, Kay Barney, the retired Raytheon International Affairs Director, and Dr. John Clark of Harvard Medical School." (Raytheon just happens to be is a major American defense contractor and the world's largest producer of guided missiles.)

Thats the common information. Here's what Barbara Boyd writes, "AFF's official history claims it was founded in 1979 by a concerned parent, Kay Barney, the retired Raytheon International Affairs Director, and Dr. John Clark of Harvard Medical School, in response to the threat posed by violent and coercive cults, particularly in the aftermath of the purported (reputed or claimed; alleged:) mass suicides of the members of the People's Temple Church of the Rev. Jim Jones, in Guyana in 1978. In contemporary language, this version of AFF's founding is an “urban legend.” In reality, the AFF's business is mind-control. Three of its “experts,” Robert J. Lifton, Louis Jolyon “Jolly” West, and Margaret Singer, did not merely study mind-control—they practiced coercive conditioning in the Nazi-doctor-style horrific secret experiments funded by the CIA's and Army intelligence's MK-Ultra. A fourth MK-Ultra veteran with AFF, Rabbi Maurice Davis, actually financed the psychotic Rev. Jim Jones of the People's Temple suicide church, in Jones's early years in Indianapolis.
However, in 1977, when a series of Congressional hearings in the Senate and House of Representatives forced the CIA et al. to close down the covert mind-control programs, Lifton, Singer, West, and others who had worked for years on the covert CIA payroll, were cut loose. They found a new home in the AFF."




Here Father Lebar goes into a detailed explanation as to why Opus Dei isn't a cult:

"Cult-Like Practices?"
"Opus Dei has been accused by critics of having "cult-like" practices. Religious scholars say Opus Dei is not a cult. But many do say it engages in practices that appear cult-like, practices used by many strict religious groups and that used to be common in some Roman Catholic orders.

Though he doesn't believe Opus Dei is a cult, Father James LeBar, who has been the Archdiocese of New York's consultant on cults for some 20 years told ABCNEWS.com that some of Opus Dei's practices resemble those used in cults: "Yes, because they do use practices that were prevalent in the 1950s in all Catholic orders, [though] many of the orders have done away with them, the close supervision ... " he says.

LeBar says Opus Dei's practices are not necessarily wrong: "If someone wishes to follow a very strict way of life, and be very closely supervised, and they willingly go into that, that's fine," he says. "But if the group manipulates people so that this happens to them and they don't know it, I'd have objection to that."

LeBar says he has been in contact with Opus Dei over the years, "hoping to help them see where the line is drawn and where they cross over it." "What I've disagreed with at times are the methods by which they either invite people in or seek to keep them in when they want to leave," he says, but adds, "I've never found any serious problems, nothing to really raise a ruckus about."
Source: http://www.rickross.com/reference/opus/opus1.html

Notice in the above bold that Lebar states, "If someone wishes to follow a very strict way of life, and be very closely supervised, and they willingly go into that, that's fine," This statement is in complete contradiction with the whole mission of the "anti-cult" movement. They are saying that people who are involved with what they consider cults aren't able to make this decision by themselves. Thus it is a completely hypocritical stance he is taking excusing groups affiliated with the Catholic Church while attacking all kinds of other groups that, in my opinion, are way less demanding.

Chapter Nine: Betrayed?

Excerpt:

"In Martin's KINGDOM OF THE CULTS he never mentions Roman Catholicism as a cult, and never tells lost Roman Catholics to come out of that unscriptural system "THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (Rev. 17:5)"

Does Walter Martin speak for the body of Christ? No! Only the Word of God does this. Yet, this man stands on his pedestal, with both hands filled with the slanderous garbage supplied by the Vatican and pro-Catholic sources, and he throws it at Alberto's character to destroy his reputation. Dr. Rivera says he has copies of the original material sent to Martin by the Vatican and the Jesuit superiors in Spain. But you'll notice, Martin hasn't bothered to attack Alberto's message that the Vatican is the whore of Revelation. Only Alberto, the man. And yet, is Martin without sin? What about Martin's past? His reputation could be slanderously destroyed also, just like anyone else's. Would this discredit all his information on Mormonism, and Jehovah's Witnesses? No! God uses us in spite of ourselves.

Behavior of people as this only reinforce the concept of the Roman Catholic Church as a cult.

Jesuitical Economic Manipulation

1929 ECONOMIC CRASH:
THE TRUE STORY & COMPARISON WITH 2008 (BBC FLANNEL)

Friday, October 10, 2008 3:12 AM

From:

Dear friends

Now we can see much of what I & others warned about for some great length of time coming to pass economically.

This is completely engineered, just like the 1929 crash that started the Great Depression. Immediately below please find a brief summary of how the 1929 crash was caused written by Eric Jon Phelps, author of the essential true history book (as opposed to all the Establishment propaganda pieces & the works that all base themselves around these). Below that is a BBC article telling some useful info about 1929 mixed in with the usual flannel about it being an accident- that was complete rubbish.

"In October of 1929 three Irish Roman Catholics on the New York Stock Exchange “sold short,” hundreds of margin calls crashing the market. According to Curtis Dahl, FDR’s son-in-law, they were Ben Strong, Tom Bragg and Joseph Kennedy. Hundreds of millions of hard-earned, real dollars had been invested in the market at the behest and encouragement of Dupont multimillionaire, Knight of Malta John J. Raskob. The calculated crash, resulting in the Great Depression, enabled the Jesuits to buy up all bankrupted businesses of interest on Wall Street for pennies on the dollar. The funds came from fascist Mussolini who had given the Vatican nearly 100 million dollars via the Lateran Treaty of March, 1929, as reparations for the loss of the Pope’s Temporal Power from 1870 to 1929. With this backdrop, we can now understand why the Order used its CFR member and 33rd Degree Freemason President Franklin Roosevelt to remove the nation’s gold coins from circulation in 1933 and to institute the Social Security System in 1934 as part of the Black Pope’s socialist “New Deal,” then supported by radio priest, Jew-baiter and Jesuit coadjutor, Charles Coughlin."

Lessons from the 1929 stock market crash

By Steve Schifferes
Economics reporter, BBC News

WHAT HAPPENED?

Fall in the Dow Jones average


In October 1929 shares on Wall Street fell sharply following a speculative boom during the "Roaring Twenties".

In two days the Dow Jones industrial average fell by 25% (ending on Black Tuesday, 29 October).

The volume of stocks traded set a record that was not broken for 40 years.

When it finally reached its record low in July 1932, the Dow Jones had fallen 89%, and it did not recover to 1929 levels until 1954.

WHAT WAS THE CAUSE?

Debates continue over the causes of the Wall Street crash.

With stocks rising four-fold over the previous decade, it had all the characteristics of a bubble, with stocks in new technologies like radio leading the way up.

View of Wall St from 1929

Speculation among stocks was intense in 1929

With lax regulation and few rules on insider trading, dealers were also able to "ramp up" shares, and holding companies built up positions in other companies without putting up any equity of their own.

Individuals were also able to buy stocks on "margin" by borrowing the money against their other share holdings.

Finally, political considerations - including Congress passing a highly protectionist tariff bill - also spooked the market.

The central bank, the US Federal Reserve, had also held interest rates unusually low for several years in order to aid the UK Sterling, which had returned to the gold standard.

WHAT WAS THE IMPACT?

Unemployment in the US Depressions

The Wall Street crash corresponded to a sharp decline in US economic output, which eventually spread around the world.

The US economy shrank by a third, and unemployment reached 25%, with many more workers on short hours.

In addition, the US banking system had seized up completely, and the first act of the new Roosevelt administration when it came to power was to close all banks for two weeks while Federal inspectors examined their books.

With no unemployment benefits or government help, the sharp fall in workers' income had a big effect on consumption and lead to a negative spiral of more factory closures.

Most observers believe that economic policy-makers made the economic downturn worse by adopting tight money policy and balanced budgets as the crisis worsened.

International trade also shrank as the US went off the gold standard and erected high tariff barriers to prevent foreign imports.

WHAT SOLUTIONS WERE TRIED?

Initially the authorities tried to rebuild confidence in markets by making reassuring speeches, with President Herbert Hoover telling Americans that the US economy was fundamentally sound.

Only a shake-out of workers from industry would ultimately restore prosperity, it was argued.

Line of unemployed men

The crash caused serious privation for millions

Private charity was relied on to help the victims of the slowdown.

Everything changed after Franklin D Roosevelt was elected president in 1932, and the US government intervened to provide unemployment relief, to stabilise markets by restricting production, to encourage unions, and to create a government system of old age pensions and unemployment insurance known as social security.

However, the Roosevelt administration had less success in reviving economic growth and business confidence remained weak.

HOW WAS THE SITUATION RESOLVED?

The Great Depression lingered on despite the variety of New Deal measures that attempted to alleviate the suffering of individuals by providing government jobs, welfare relief or mortgage protection.

It was only the onset of World War II, when the US government finally embraced Keynesian-style deficit spending on a large scale, that the economy recovered.

US economic output doubled during the war, and unemployment vanished as women and blacks were pulled into the workforce to replace the millions drafted into the military.

At its peak, the US government was borrowing half the money needed to finance the war, while half was raised by taxes.

WHAT LESSONS ARE THERE FOR THE CURRENT CRISIS?

There are three main lessons which policy makers are applying to the current crisis.

The first is that financial markets, banks, and the real economy are interlinked, so that unresolved problems in one sector can spread to others.

The second is that active and rapid government intervention to ease pressures on the economy is essential during times of real economic crisis. The slow and probably wrong-headed response of the US government and central banks in the 1930s made the downturn more severe.

Thirdly, there is the danger of a policy vacuum during the inter-regnum. In 1933 the US banking crisis grew much worse during the five months between the election of a new president and his taking office.

That may explain why both candidates endorsed the Bush administration's rescue plan despite some misgivings.


See that above we read the usual nonsense of why both candidates agree with Bush. No, the real reason is that they are controlled puppets subserviant ultimately to the Pope in Rome.

Wlodimir (Vladimir) Ledochowski's Pius XII Canonization?

Wlodimir Ledochowski
26th Superior General of the Jesuit Order
February 11, 1915 - December 13, 1942


Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli (Pope Pius XII)
March 2, 1939 - October 9, 1958

On the 50th anniversary of Pacelli's death, the Roman Catholic Church's Pope Benedict XVI, pushes the idea of his canonization (declaration as a 'Saint'); this is despite (or in defiance of) the many negative things about his role in WW2 and the rise of the 3rd Reich.


Yet in all of the news reports, there is no mention (as far as I have found) of the man that Pacelli 'idolized'; according to Tupper Saussy:
15 Brienner Strasse

(excerpt)

Eugenio Pacelli had served in the Church’s diplomatic service since his ordination in 1899. His international sensibilities had been mentioned by the Jesuits, one of whom – Vladimir (Wlodimir) Ledochowski – he idolized. I say “idolized” because this is the exact word an elderly Jesuit I interviewed in Rome employed to describe Pacelli’s relationship to Ledochowski. He’d known both figures personally.
Pope Benedict, Adolfo Nicholas, and company- why is the name Wlodimir Ledochowski so obscure?

Why is Ledochowski so rarely mentioned?

Even by the Roman Catholic Church?

His two older sisters were canonized.

So why no canonization for Ledochowski?

Enmity Between Rome and Freemasonry?



Troy Space email quote of Guy Stair Sainty:
http://continuingcounterreformation.blogspot.com/2008/10/dialogue-2008-troy-space-with-guy-stair.html

The fact that the Catholic Church has repeatedly condemned freemasonry (the “illuminate”) etc, seems to have escaped you entirely along with the fact that its greatest enemies, particularly in the late 18th and 19th centuries, were all freemasons. Whatever one thinks of the Jesuits (and the ones I know personally are uniformly spiritual and devout men with a sincere love of their fellow men – in the generic sense), to tie them into freemasonry and these kind of conspiracies simply betrays an ignorance of the history of the Society. Not least because the Jesuits of the late 20th century are the polar opposite in their understanding of the role of the Papacy and the Church to those of the 19th century; for me their obsession with social justice (not in itself wrong) has clouded their judgment in some other areas.

Again, knowing the Order of Malta and its history as well as I do, I find the idea that it is some kind of secret power simply laughable. The men who run it are largely elderly, they include school teachers (the late grand master and another member of the sovereign council Fra Elie de Comminges), university professors (Fra John Macpherson), lawyers (Anthony Sanchez Correa), a Sotheby’s regional representative (fra Matthew Festing, the present Grand Master), and the like; most of them have little or any interest in politics and very little experience of business. They would be horrified to find a freemason in their midst.
