Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is calling for the implementation of World Government in the wake of global economic and medical crises.
The traditional story is here tested against the evidence. ‘The Gunpowder Plot’ of 1605, also known at the time as the ‘Gunpowder Treason Plot’ or the ‘Jesuit Treason’, was billed as a failed assassination plot against Protestant King James I of England by a group of English Catholics led by Robert Catesby.
The official story was that the “conspirators” were going to blow up the House of Lords during the opening of England’s Parliament on 5th November by igniting a massive cache of gunpowder stored in the cellars under the Houses of Parliament. The alleged conspirators, we are told, hoped to inspire a widespread revolt in which a Catholic monarch could be placed on the throne.
Also allegedly involved in the plot were a number of other Catholics including Guido “Guy” Fawkes, a veteran of the military. Fawkes was supposedly given charge of the explosives. One version of the “official” story is that he was caught in the act, just as he was lighting the fuse attached to the pile of gunpowder. At their trial on 27th January, 1606, eight of the survivors, including Fawkes, were convicted and sentenced to be hung, drawn and quartered. Almost all of them had confessed after weeks of brutal torture.
The Protestant ruling elite subsequently used the Gunpowder Plot to continue cracking down on the practice of Catholicism in England and to foment perpetual war with England’s neighbours.
Many more Catholics, lay and clergy alike, were hunted down, tortured and either imprisoned or executed. Many Catholics went into hiding. But was the Gunpowder Plot a “false flag,” an event in which one group frames another for a crime for some political end? And how does the evidence stand up to real scrutiny? Was the plot even possible? Was it more likely that members of a government faction had set up the plot themselves using infiltrators and double agents?
At the time (and ever since), propaganda about the event was used to unify the people against Catholics, with state-sponsored holidays in which effigies of Guy Fawkes, in particular, were burned as the public lit bonfires and celebrated the foiling of the “dastardly” scheme. What’s the truth? Find out in this special edition of an 1897 book by John Gerard, who bears the same name as one of the Catholic priests pursued for involvement in the Gunpowder Plot.
The Benedictines of the Abbey of the Holy Cross have affirmed that permission for the exhumation of Franco’s remains had not been granted by them and that armed police from the Civil Guard invaded the private property of the monastery, including the basilica.
“We want it to be on record that the actions of the security forces and the workers have been and are totally incompatible with the principle of the inviolability of places of worship and the rights of this Benedictine community.”
Furthermore the monks were denied access to their own basilica, where the Blessed Sacrament is housed, by armed goons belonging to the Civil Guard.
“……. the Civil Guard, without judicial authorisation to allow it, accessed and wandered about the premises of the abbey and, what is more serious, accessed and wandered about the basilica…….. without any ecclesiastical authorisation and occupying it 24 hours a day…….. chains and padlocks were placed on the access door between the abbey and the basilica,” despite the fact that the monks are “the sole owners and custodians of the church.”
The Benedictines went on to add that because the abbey and basilica were forcefully taken over by a hostile party “without the least supervision” the sacred character of the church was violated and the religious guardians of the basilica are left “not knowing if actions incompatible with worship, piety, or religion have taken place.”
The desecration of Franco’s grave reminds very much of the vile attacks on Christianity in the years and months leading up to the Spanish Civil War, which also involved the desecration of graves.
The anti-Christian government in Spain is about to desecrate the grave of former Head of State General Francisco Franco and remove his remains to a private family plot. Franco’s resting place is situated behind the high altar of the Catholic Basilica of the Holy Cross of the Valley of the Fallen. On Thursday, 23rd October, the anti-Christian powers in Spain are due to desecrate the sacrosanct property of the Church and trample all over her rights, just as they did in the years leading up to the Spanish Civil War.
In the two years leading up to the Civil War that began in 1936 until its end in 1939, more than 20,000 Christian churches were destroyed. The diabolical anti-Christian hatred unleashed in Spain persecuted, tortured and murdered tens of thousands of Christians in a targeted attack upon Christianity Nearly 7,000 clergy and religious were cruelly murdered. The martyred include 13 bishops, 4,172 diocesan priests and seminarians, 2,364 monks and friars, and 283 nuns. The military coup, that started the Spanish Civil War proper, was partly in response to these ferocious and murderous attacks upon the Church, her clergy and religious.
In the Valle de los Caidos, the Valley of the Fallen, the basilica, and its surrounding monument, capped by a 500 foot Christian Cross, can be seen from some twenty-miles away. It is carved out of a granite mountain and erected as a symbol of reconciliation and peace, containing as it does the remains of 40,000 people from both warring sides. All their names are recorded in the monument’s register. In a similarly symbolic gesture Franco, the reactionary right-wing pro-capitalist military General, was laid to rest in the basilica next to the popular martyred Spanish nationalist leader Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera who sought social justice for the landless and oppressed and the unity of Spain based upon the social doctrines of the Church.
Interestingly, perhaps a sign of providence at work, Franco went to his eternal judgement on 20th November, the same day, but 39 years later, that Jose Antonio was martyred by the anti-Christian regime just a few months before the beginning of Spain’s Civil War.
With the removal of Franco’s remains and the desecration of the basilica, Spanish Catholics are expecting an increased wave of attacks upon what is left of Christian civilisation in Spain.
Even the New York Post, the 4th largest-circulation newspaper in the U.S.A., found the “allegations were utterly implausible” enough to provide an opinion-piece with the straight-to-the-point headline “Catholic-haters have just convicted an innocent cardinal”.
