The Vatican is labeled as several things, a city, a state, a bank, a church, a government, a business and a crime syndicate. Let’s not jump the gun straight away back throughout history there are numerous things that the Vatican has endorsed and also played a part in, but we will relay on a few in today’s episode.
You probably have heard about the Vatican, but do you really know what the Vatican is? It isn’t just some building the pope resides in. It is much much more.
Most people might not know this but the Vatican is a city. Vatican City.
Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head. The Vatican mints its own euros, prints its own stamps, issues passports and license plates, operates media outlets and has its own flag and anthem. One government function it lacks: taxation. Museum admission fees, stamp and souvenir sales, and contributions generate the Vatican’s revenue.
It has a population of around 800-900 people. In both size/area and population, Vatican City is the smallest sovereign state in the world. There is no capital of Vatican City as the city is the state itself.
Vatican City is not a democracy and is not a member of the United Nations. It is not a member of the EU although the official currency is the Euro. Euro coins representing the Vatican are printed at the mint in Rome.
Pope Francis is the current Bishop of Rome and is head of state of Vatican City. The Pope is not considered a king although he is the sovereign ruler of both Vatican City and of the Holy See.
So why was the Vatican City established?
To comprehend this we have to understand what the Papal States were, in essence they were states of the Church. A series of territories in the Italian Peninsula under the direct sovereign rule of the pope.
Italy wanted to make Rome the capital of their country and they conquered the Papal States.
In that period the Pope refused to acknowledge the existence of the Kingdom of Italy and he was telling the Catholics of Italy and the ones around the world that he was a prisoner of the Kingdom of Italy. The popes changed, but the story remained the same.
In comes Mussolini chippy chop here’s some dosh, keep your own little shit going on here but recognize Italy and you can remain neutral in the schemes of politics and war.
As mentioned previously the Pope is the ruler of the Holy See ( The Holy See is the entity that governs both the actual territory of Vatican City and the entirety of Roman Catholicism around the world, which includes some 1.2 billion followers.) So from this info we can see that the Vatican is more than just the pope’s house.
If you look through history you can see that there always seems to be constant new sectors of Christianity. We have the initial divide which resulted in the Catholic and Orthodox churches which debated on a couple of differences, but the main one being supreme authority to the Pope. The next sector to split from the Catholics were the Lutherans/Protestants which like before had disputes with the Pope as he was offering Indulgences which were a way to be pardoned of your sins. However, in this case it was to fund the rebuild of the Basilica which made Martin Luther write the 95 theses which stated that the catholic church was finding a way to purchase salvation of their people by Pope Leo X, which resulted in the Protestant Reformation. And of course shortly after that there was the Church of England who broke away from the Catholic Church because King Henry the 8th wanted a divorce, which resulted in a big fargery the Romans as an ally, as there were religious crusades going on and England was left to fight against the Catholics. That is until an agreement with England to connect over their agreement to support everything mentioned at the Council of Trent in 1562. (Which was a counter reformation with the Protestant Church).
That is a brief history with the schisms departing from the Catholic church. But there is an underlying power that the Vatican has which plays a part for the New World Order, because at the end of the day, being the head of the major religion around the world and situated in the land which has been present since the biblical times and the prophecies which are also mentioned, it will be all eventually be pieced together in one way or another.
Did you know the word Vatican means divining serpent?
In a strange turn of events and the constant reference to snakes and satan and also designs in the Vatican which was prophesied in the bible, one can go beyond assuming why it is there in your face, Exhibitionism is there in the Vatican also to lead people on that they are the divine serpent that will cause the split for man and the power that is behind the illuminati inspired teachings in the Vatican through this constant imagery and flamboyant perceptions.Just look at the photos it’s a serpent in every possible angle you view it.
There have been several popes who have come into power over the years all to adhere to one agreement, control religion to control the people, and yes there have been strange things that are not part of religion that the popes are happy to pass in order to capitalise on their power, such as:
- Vaccines will get you into heaven
- There is no afterlife
- Support of evolution and darwinism
- Corrupting and changing of the bible
USA & The Vatican
History shows that the USA and the Vatican cut its ties after the Lincoln Era around 1867 as there are theories stating the Vatican was endorsing and funding the confederacy, which led the Americans to believe the Vatican was against them. That is until 1984 during the Reagan period where after 117 years he commenced relations with the Vatican, (as majority of American’s are Protestant) which some say was just to assist with the end of the Cold War with Russia. However since Reagan’s inauguration, he faced the Washington monument, which is a shout out to the pope facing the obelisk in the Vatican.
Vatican leaks scandal
The Vatican leaks scandal, also known as Vati-Leaks, is a scandal initially involving leaked Vatican documents, exposing corruption;
Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi published letters from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò in which he exposed corruption that cost the Holy See millions.
The scandal first came to light in late January 2012 in a television program named The Untouchables (Gli intoccabili), aired in Italy ,] and escalated in May 2012 when Gianluigi Nuzzi published a book entitled His Holiness: The Secret Papers of Benedict XVI consisting of confidential letters and memos.
Some of the information that came out:
- Vatican properties ‘used as brothels and massage parlours where priests pay for sex,’
Vatican-owned properties in Rome are operating as seedy saunas and massage parlours where priests pay for sex. It is also claimed that Vatican officials are allowing buildings to be rented out at peppercorn rents as favours to powerful colleagues and turning a blind eye to shady property deals, as well as allowing addresses to be used as red-light establishments.
Two years ago it emerged the Vatican had purchased a €23m (£16m) share of a Rome apartment block, 2 Via Carducci, which housed the Europa Multiclub, Europe’s biggest gay sauna. Tales of visiting priests were legion, and a section of the sauna’s website promoting special “bear nights” included a video of a hirsute man stripping down and changing into a priest’s outfit.
Child Pornography Videos / Child Abuse
Vatican Paedophilia Scandal: Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski Stored Over 100,000 Child Porn Videos
A former Vatican archbishop accused of paedophilia stored tens of thousands of child porn videos and photos on a computer in his office at the Holy See diplomatic compound in the Dominican Republic, it has emerged.
Details of Jozef Wesolowski’s massive child porn stash have been revealed after the 66-year-old was arrested at the Vatican earlier this week.
He is the highest-ranking Vatican official ever to be investigated for sex abuse, and the first top papal representative to receive a defrocking sentence. He has been charged with sexually abusing minors and child porn possession and might face up to seven years in the Vatican’s tiny jail.
Some 160 videos showing teenage boys forced to perform sexual acts on themselves and on adults and more than 86,000 pornographic photos were meticulously archived in several category-based folders, the paper said.
Investigators said that at least another 45,000 pictures were deleted, while a second stash of material was found on a laptop Wesolowski used during his trips abroad.
There are multiple examples of this taking place. For instance:
A two year grand jury investigation in Pennsylvania found that over 300 Catholic priests sexually abused over 1000 children, and leadership within the church made the decision to cover it up and lie about it for decades. And that’s just in Pennsylvania. The Catholic Church is also directly responsible for the death of one of his sexual abuse victims (more on that later). The information was obtained largely through documents the church itself kept, recording a detailed history of known sexual perpetrators and child victims.
The over 900-page report describes in horrific detail the depths to which the abuse went. “Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all. For decades.” If that’s not enough, one of the incidents in the report details how a group of Catholic priests in Pittsburgh ran a child pornography ring.
The priests would work together as a team to select a child. As a victim explained in his grand jury testimony: The men gave a specific gift to children they favored, something they could wear that would mark them as prime targets for abuse. Priests would for example, give their boys, their altar boys, or their favorite boys crosses that signified they were theirs.
A witness recounted a photo session as a degrading experience. “It is still really hard to get it out there that you were in a room when you were 14 or 15 and getting naked pictures taken from priests,” he said. Other details in the grand jury report discuss how one priest raped five sisters belonging to the same family. Another priest raped a young boy so violently that the boy had to get treatment for back injuries. As part of his treatment, the child received opioid painkillers, which he eventually became addicted to, and died from.
Who is Cardinal George Pell?
Pell is essentially the treasurer of the Vatican and the Holy See in Rome, a high-ranking position that makes him among the world’s most powerful Catholics. He has also been a longtime confidant to Pope Francis. Before his appointment to the Vatican in 2014, Pell held senior positions within the Catholic church in Australia.
How has he responded to child sexual abuse in the church?
Pell has attracted criticism since the 1990s for the way he responded to allegations of child sexual abuse while he was working in Australian Catholic institutions. As archbishop of Melbourne he formulated the much-criticised Melbourne Response, which offered support and counselling to victims of sexual abuse but capped compensation payments. In 2014 he said the church was no more responsible for child abuse carried out by church figures than a trucking company would be if they employed a driver who molested women.
What are the allegations?
He was sentenced to 6 years because he jerked off infront of a child and for the penetration of 2 children. Three years and 8 months non-parole period
He was convicted of abusing two boys whom he had caught drinking sacramental wine in a rear room of the cathedral in late 1996, as hundreds of worshippers were streaming out of Sunday services.
He was also found guilty of assaulting one of the boys in a corridor more than a month later.
He was actually convicted of five offences in December last year, but details of the verdicts were kept secret for fear they would prejudice a second trial he was facing. Those charges have now been dropped even though a jury unanimously convicts Pell on all charges and Victoria court ruled to uphold the conviction.
As soon as the charges were dropped he run-tuttered back to the Vatican city in order to help Pope Francis sort through the biggest financial scandal.
Then you have this popping up:

Mafia ties with the Vatican
As mentioned at the beginning the Vatican also has its own banking institution, therefore can grant loans and work like any other bank in the world. However, being in Italy as a good bank you would want to show initiative in supporting your fellow buzziness, even if they are the mafia. Sources show the Vatican bank has financed various businesses which were fronts for the mafia and where else would a corrupt organisation get their financing from, that’s right, a fellow corrupt bank.
Pope Benedict XVI
As mentioned before the with the who fargery involving the Vatican leaks which then resulted in ‘Nazi’ Pope Josef Ratzinger to step down for the Jesuit soldier to take over, however he may allegedly be involved in the ‘ninth circle’.
The ninth circle was a group of European elitists who would take part in human hunting games. The records showed Ratzinger was identified as a member of the Knights while working as an S.S. Chaplain’s assistant at the Ravensbruck Concentration Camp in Germany. The records also stated that Ratzinger participated in child sacrificial rites using kidnapped children from the camps or political prisoners.
At least 231 children were abused at Catholic boys’ choir run by Pope Benedict’s brother.
