Mexico Cardinal: Victims Who Accuse Priests Should Be ‘Ashamed’

Mexican Cardinal Sergio Obeso Rivera said abuse victims should be “ashamed”  to accuse “men of the Church.”

The newly-minted cardinal was speaking to a group of journalists on August 16, just days after the bombshell revelations out of Pennsylvania that some 300 members of the Church abused upwards of 1,000 children over the course of 70 years. This abuse was only possible, according the grand jury report, because of a Church-wide cover up that reached all the way to the Vatican.

“I’m here happy to talk about nice things, not about problematic things, it’s an accusation that is made, and in some cases it’s true,” Obeso River said. “But the evil of many is the consolation of fools, because sometimes those who accuse men of the Church should [be careful] because they have long tails that are easily stepped on.”

The comments could be interpreted as a threat, a threat of exposure if you accuse a priest with skeletons in your own closet.

The cardinal spoke to reporters in Spanish and one interpretation of his remarks reads, “those who accuse us should have a little pain.”

He did add that the allegations “make us feel bad and we want to improve.”

Obeso Rivera was appointed a cardinal by Pope Francis in late June.

The Church’s sex scandal also touched Obeso Rivera’s Mexico.

Father Marcial Maciel Dogollado was defrocked by Pope Benedict in 2006 after being found guilty by the Church of sexually abusing nine boys and young men. After he died, it was discovered he had fathered a child with one of his two mistresses and might have abused his own children. Dogollado died in Florida in 2008 at the age of 87.

Surprise, surprise. There was a training exercise going on in Jacksonville today during the mass shooting.

Firefighters who were participating in a training exercise right next to the mall were treating victims before the first 911 call went out, the Jacksonville Association of Firefighters president tweeted, adding, “Victims ran to them.”

Training Exercises Dovetail with Mass Shootings. What are the Odds?

 

https://www.globalresearch.ca/training-exercises-dovetail-with-mass-shootings-what-are-the-odds/5493110

 

Published in December 2015, this article by Jon Rappoport has a bearing on the recent Florida Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shootout. 

According to the Miami Herald, concerning the shootout at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida:

Earlier that day at a staff meeting, teachers had been told there would soon be a “code red” or “lockdown” drill — in which teachers and students practice their response to an immediate threat — but they hadn’t been told the date.

Rospierski was sitting at his desk around 2:25 p.m. when the fire alarm rang. His students filed out of their third-floor classroom and made their way toward the stairs. Then Rospierski heard the sound of gunfire. (emphasis added)

“Turn around, go to your classrooms!” he yelled to the students.

(Update). According to an NBC report, a fire drill preceded the shootout:

“Gard’s math class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was just finishing up a review for a test Wednesday when “the fire alarm went off, which I thought was unusual because we’d just had a fire drill.“” (emphasis added)

***

Whether mass shootings are approached as the mainstream reports them, or as false flags, staged scenarios, or outright hoaxes, there is a common thread which runs through some of them: official training exercises held just prior to, or at the same time as, the shootings.

I’m not trying to present an all-inclusive list here.

The November 13, 2015, Paris attacks: “Since the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January, from which 16 people died, Paris-area ambulance crews and emergency personnel have taken part in regular exercises designed to test their readiness for possible attacks. One such exercise was held on Friday morning, the day of the latest terror attacks. In a twist of fate, the simulated emergency was a mass shooting, according to Dr. Mathieu Raux, emergency room chief at the Pitié-Salpetrière hospital in Paris.” (Bloomberg, 11/17/15, “Hours Before the Terror Attacks, Paris Practiced for a Mass Shooting”)

The Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting, June 17, 2015: See The Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers Advanced Training Schedule chart (in the article), which lists training courses in various locations. The chart indicates that, in Charleston, there was an “Active Shooter Threat Instructor Program” from June 15 to June 19, which overlapped the church shooting. (humansarefree.com, 6/24/15, “‘Active Shooter Drills’ Took Place in the Same Day as Charleston Shooting…”)

Boston Marathon attack, April 15, 2013: In this case, the training exercise was called off, because the real thing happened before the exercise took place—“…the DHS-funded drill, known as ‘Operation Urban Shield,’ was intended to take place during the summer, according to the Boston Globe — that is until the ‘real’ event beat it to the punch. But the drill itinerary so closely resembles what actually occurred the day of the bombings that even the mainstream media source responsible for bringing it to light could not help but point out this incredible ‘coincidence,’ …The [training exercise] scenario had been carefully planned: A terrorist group prepared to hurt vast numbers of people around Boston would leave backpacks filled with explosives at Faneuil Hall, the Seaport District, and in other towns, spreading waves of panic and fear, explains the Boston Globe…” (Natural News, 6/22/13, “DHS documents prove Boston Marathon bombing was false flag ‘drill’ planned months in advance”)

Sandy Hook school shooting, December 14, 2012: “By grim coincidence, even as the terrible events were unfolding in Newtown on Friday morning, the Putnam County Emergency Response Team (‘ERT’) happened to be assembled for regular training in Carmel, and team members were at that very moment engaged in a mock scenario of an active-shooter in a school. The ERT is comprised of specially trained and heavily armed officers from the Sheriff’s Office and the Carmel and Kent Police Departments. When news broke of the Newtown shooting, the Putnam County ERT commander called Newtown Police and offered to have the ERT respond to the Sandy Hook school, but that response was not needed because Connecticut police had already secured the scene.” (Southeast-Brewster Patch newspaper, 12/18/12, “Sheriff: Putnam Officials to Talk School Safety This Afternoon”)

The July 20, 2012, Aurora, Colorado, “Batman” shooting: “The tragedy that played out in an Aurora movie theater Friday was ironically paralleled as a classroom learning experience in a medical school in Parker the same day. Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine is in the middle of holding specialized classes in disaster life support for 150 second-year medical students. Along with response to natural disasters like hurricanes and floods and terrorist attacks, one of the scenarios being used to train the students is how to respond if a shooter fires at people in a movie theater and also uses a bomb in the attack. ‘The irony is amazing, just amazing,’ said Rocky Vista Dean Dr. Bruce Dubin.” (Denver Post, 7/21/12, “Real life shooting imitates training exercise at Parker medical school”)

The Oslo bombing/shooting attack, July 22, 2011: “Only hours before Anders Behring Breivik began shooting children on Utøya, the police emergency squad concluded an exercise where they practiced an almost identical situation. Four days in advance, and also the same Friday the attack was carried out, the police special unit trained on an ongoing terror campaign that was approximately equal to the situation that hours later, met the 22 police officers within the emergency squad on Utøya. As far as Aftenposten has been informed, the training transcended directly into what the policed then faced in the Tyrifjord that very day; a mobile terror attack, in which one or more perpetrators only goal was to shoot as many people as possible and then shoot the police when they arrived. Only 26 minutes after the emergency squad’s training had concluded, the car bomb went off in the government quarter. The Emergency Squad arrived early on the scene.” (publicintelligence.net, 8/30/11, “Norwegian Police Conducted Drill for ‘Almost Identical’ Scenario Minutes Before Utoya Massacre”)

The 7/7/2005 bomb attacks on the London underground: “A fictional ‘scenario’ of multiple bomb attacks on London’s underground took place at exactly the same time as the bomb attack on July 7, 2005.

“Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, a private firm on contract to the London Metropolitan Police, described in a BBC interview how he had organized and conducted the anti-terror drill, on behalf of an unnamed business client.

“The fictional scenario was based on simultaneous bombs going off at exactly the same time at the underground stations where the real attacks were occurring:

POWER: At half past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing up right now.

HOST: To get this quite straight, you were running an exercise to see how you would cope with this and it happened while you were running the exercise?

POWER: Precisely, and it was about half past nine this morning, we planned this for a company and for obvious reasons I don’t want to reveal their name but they’re listening and they’ll know it. And we had a room full of crisis managers for the first time they’d met and so within five minutes we made a pretty rapid decision that this is the real one and so we went through the correct drills of activating crisis management procedures to jump from slow time to quick time thinking and so on. (BBC Radio Interview, 7 July 2005—as reported at Global Research, 8/8/15, “Ten Years Ago: The London 7/7 Mock Terror Drill: What Relationship to the Real Time Terror Attacks?”)

9/11/01 attacks on Trade Center and the Pentagon: No less than 22 drills took place on that day, among which was a National Reconnaissance Office exercise in Chantilly, Virginia, involving a simulated plane crashing into a tall building. (See Kevin Barrett’s chart of 9/11 training exercises “The 46 drills, operations, war games, and activities of 9/11”, based on Webster Tarpley’s book, 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA (5th Ed))

CUPW allies with Palestinian union that glorifies terrorism

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPy11wwcQgI

David Menzies of The Rebel.Media reports: The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is delivering more progressive leftwing madness, this time aligning itself with its Palestinian counterpart which not only delivers mail but apparently likes to support terrorism, too. MORE:

 

 

http://www.cjnews.com/news/canada/canadian-postal-union-called-out-for-alliance-with-palestinian-union

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has aligned itself with its Palestinian counterpart – a group that B’nai Brith accuses of supporting terrorism.

In late May, CUPW, which represents some 50,000 postal workers, revealed that it has a “joint project” with the Palestinian Postal Service Workers’ Union (PPSWU) that’s “designed to strengthen the Palestinian postal union and build greater solidarity between our two unions.”

It didn’t say what the project was, but noted that Palestinian postal workers have been “strong allies” of CUPW, and claimed that the PPSWU was the first union in the world to issue a statement of support during CUPW’s last contract negotiation.

The Canadian union also said that Imad Temeiza, president of the PPSWU, had obtained a visa to visit Canada, where he attended several labour-related events and met with pro-Palestinian groups in Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa last spring.

 

In a July 31 statement, B’nai Brith Canada accused the Palestinian postal union of supporting terrorism and “the elimination of Israel.”

The group cited the union’s Facebook page, which “twice glorified Palestinian terrorist Ahmad Nasr Jarrar, hailing him as a ‘hero of my country,’ ” according to B’nai Brith.

READ: RETURN CUPW’S MESSAGE TO SENDER

A member of Hamas, which is banned in Canada as a terror organization, Jarrar went into hiding after Rabbi Raziel Shevach, 32, was murdered last January outside the West Bank settlement where he lived.

Weeks later, Jarrar, the suspected ringleader of the group that killed Shevach, was shot dead by Israeli forces.

B’nai Brith also noted another recent post on the PPSWU’s Facebook page that called for the release of Fuad Shubaki, who was convicted in 2009 of attempting to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip for use by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, which is also a designated terrorist entity in Canada.

All the posts on the PPSWU’s Facebook page are in Arabic, which B’nai Brith translated into English.

Alon Katzakevich, an Israeli-born member of CUPW who lives in Winnipeg, told The CJN that upon discovering his union’s ties to this and other Palestinian causes, he was “shocked and surprised – but a negative surprise.”

He encountered “a total ignorance of Israel” and began writing and calling union representatives, including the president. “I’m still waiting for their response,” he said.

Be my guest to explain to my kids why they grew up without a grandmother who was murdered by Palestinian terrorists.
– Alon Katzakevich

Katzakevich, who came to Canada three years ago, has special reason to be upset: his mother-in-law was murdered in the 1997 suicide bombing at Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda market. She was one of 16 people who were killed and 178 who were injured.

“Be my guest to explain to my kids why they grew up without a grandmother who was murdered by Palestinian terrorists,” he told B’nai Brith.

Katzakevich began working at Canada Post in May 2017 and was planning to quit before this episode.

“Rather than using the union movement to build peace between Israel and the Palestinians, the CUPW leadership has aligned itself with the path of violence and extremism,” said Michael Mostyn, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada. “This is both deeply immoral and obviously not in the best interests of Canadian postal workers.”

In the same statement in late May, CUPW noted the rioting at the Israel-Gaza border that left some 135 Palestinians dead and accused Canada of being “complicit in these crimes, supplying Israel with weaponry used to kill civilians and to maintain an illegal occupation of Palestine.”

CUPW endorsed the BDS campaign against Israel in 2008.

It did not return The CJN’s messages seeking comment.

 

Furious bride cancels wedding because guests wouldn’t ‘donate’ $1,500 each to attend

A Canadian woman has ended her relationship and cancelled her $CAD60,000 ($AU62,856) wedding because guests refused to pay $1,500 each to attend.

The gob-smacking story has gone viral after someone posted screen shots of the bride’s initial Facebook post to Reddit.

The bride – whose name is Susan – made a lengthy post in which she tells guests to, “just f—king give me my money for my wedding”.

The post begins: “Dear friends, it comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the [name blanked out] wedding.

“I apologise for cancelling only 4 days beforehand. Unfortunately, [name blanked out] and I have broken up due to some recent and irreparable problems.”
