In the light of all their sucesses, they were not content to allow the real Pope Paul VI to continue. He was too slow with change. In the 1970's, an imposter Pope, a look alike, replaced him. Voice analysis proves the two men were not the same. The nose and the ears were not the same. The imposter was far sighted, the real Pope Paul VI was short sighted. It is claimed that the real Pope Paul VI could speak English and Latin. Others say he couldn't speak English. When the imposter spoke on radio, a voice could be heard coaching him from the background. Still most people continued as they have always done, just accepting whatever they are told. If they are told that this is Pope Paul VI, then that is who he is, end of discussion.
The look-alike imposter Pope reversed many of Pope Paul's stands. The real Pope had strongly against divorce. He had been against women at the altar, and communion in the hand which the new Pope allowed. Communion in the hand was important for the Satanists, and their Black Mass because they liked to take the wafer back and use it in their Holy Communion (Holy or Unholy?). This Satanic ritual and the ability to bring back and use "Christ's body" gives them a sense of power. The imposter allowed all these things and also discontinued the Index of Forbidden Books. The imposter travelled, and went to the U.N. and met with the Chief of State of the Soviet Union Podgorny.
Three men were instumental in carrying out the deception with this imposter Pope Paul VI. They were Cardinal Villot, Archbishop Casaroli, and Archbishop Benelli. All were Freemasons. Casaroli's membership has already been discussed. Cardinal Villot became a Freemason August 6, 1966. Benelli was not only a Freemason, but his mother (maiden name Wanda Katz) was Jewish. He himself was known to be a communist and described by some as "self-serving." Villot was the Pope's Secretary of State, and his assistent was Benelli.
Villot was also head of the Sacred Congregation For The Clergy. This allowed him to administer the temporal belongings of the Vatican. Casaroli used other Catholic Masons as Papal envoys, and set up Masonic fronts in other countries. One Masonic front was the National Council of Catholic Bishops in the U.S.
All this Masonic activity and infiltration did not go unnoticed. Cardinal Danielou of France announced that he had a list of the names of Masons who had risen to important positions in the Catholic Church. This 67 year old Cardinal was murdered four days after his announcement, (20 May 1974) and the body put in the apartment of a prostitute to discredit him. On 25 June the New York Times ran the story of his "heart attack" in the stripper's apartment with undertones of a scandal. As did the Sunday Times, 9 June. (For more on this type of thing see Chap. 3.7) Later in May 1976, another list of Masons holding positions in the Vatican even got circulated in the Vatican,93 but due to the enormous power of the Masons nothing ever came of it.
THE BIRTH & GROWTH OF P2
Under the administration of Mussolini, the activities of the Masons had been sharply curtailed. Yet Mussolini had met with and warmly received the Rosicrucians.94 In other words, Mussolini was primarily concerned with maintaining power, the Masons were a secret power and therefore a threat, while the Rosicrucians seemed to simply be an occultic religious group. One law from Mussolini's rule managed to remain on the books in Italy that cramped the style of the Masonic Lodges. That rule was that they had to report their memberships. It's harder to secretly rule, if the public knows who is a Mason and who isn't.
The history of how the Masons got around that law to report their lodge membership lists is the history of P2. Licio Gelli was raised in a regular Masonic lodge in Nov., 1963. He went on to become a 3° Mason and the Master of a lodge. The Italian Grand Master approached him with the idea of forming a secret Lodge system. With the blessings and help of the Grand Master, Gelli began forming a secret (therefore in Italy illegal) Masonic Lodge system called P2 for short- "Raggruppamento Gelli-Propoganda 2" was the full name.95 The original Propoganda Lodge was a historic italian lodge in the 19th century.
This group has their own ritual, which include dressing up in black robes and black hoods, like friars. They pledge total loyalty to the Lodge, and called themselves "fratell i",96 In Italian the word for Mason, "Masso" comes from the word for brick. Consequently, the "suicide" of Roberto Calvi done by his P2 fratelli can be understood. Roberto Calvi, an Italian Banker of importance was a P2 member and P2' s paymaster, and was found hanging under the Blackfriars Bridge in London in 1982 with bricks in his pockets. Can the symbolism go unnoticed? The warning must have been clear to the other fratelli.
Calvi had eight bodyguards, armor-plated Alfa Romeos with bullet-proof tires, etc., one of the best security systems in Italy. And none of it saved him.
BUT WHO WOULD JOIN SUCH A FRATERNITY?
When one examines how the P2 Masonic Lodges operate, the question becomes not "who would join?" but "who wouldn't join?"
If you have managed to get into a position of power without selling yourself out to the system, then the P2 Masonic system has their ways to recruit you that seem to come straight out of the book The Godfathers. Personal contact by existing members is a nice way to recruit. Potential recruits are especially impressed when they receive a phone call telling them that P2 will fix a certain upcoming job position for them, and then they see P2 has the power to fulfill. If that doesn't make them want to join, then there is always blackmail and threats. There are other more permanent solutions for people who are totally unwilling to bow to terror. When joining the candidate is required to spill his guts and expose all the dirt he knows, which gives the Lodge further material to blackmail not only himself but many other people.
An example of the talent that P2 has, is P2 Mason Jose' Lopez Rega, who created the imfamous Triple-A death squads and a cocaine smuggling opperation between Argentina and the U.S.
Cardinal Giacomo Lercaro, an influential liberal who helped insure that Vatican II was adopted as policy for the Catholic Church was close friends with P2 Mason Ortolani. Ortolani in turn was a businessman, lawyer, ex-head of the Italian SISMI Military Intelligence during W.W.II. Nor was Lercaro the only highly placed Vatican friend of P2 Mason Ortolani.
Due to a few incorruptable brave Italian law enforcement officers, secret P2 membership lists were seized in Tuscany in 1981. These revealed about 1,000 names. The lists revealed that most of the power in Italy (not to mention Latin America) had been brought under the Lodge's control. In the decade prior to this, various individuals had also been leaking membership lists of high ranking Vatican officials that were Masons. For instance, L'Osservatore Politico (OP) published a list in Sept. 1978 of 121 people in the Vatican—what OP called "The Great Vatican Lodge" who were Freemasons of some sort, more were members of the regular lodges than of P2.
Is it possible that P2 is a runaway lodge system, a power unto themselves? Even if that is so, (and only a few men would know for sure the exact ties P2 has to regular Freemasonry--this Author doesn't know), it certainly has been working closely with regular Freemasonry and many of the other groups that Freemasonry associates with. The P2 lodges have connections with the English Grand Lodge, the Trilateral Commission in the U.S., the Bohemian Grove, and the Club of Rome, not to mention the Mafia and Intelligence Services (MI6/CIA/etc.) One of George Bush's appointees was P2 Mason Philip Guarino, the Vice-chairman of his Ethnic Outreach Committee. When his membership became public he was dropped.
The list of P2 members disclosed that the P2 Masonic Lodge system's membership included within Italy:
30 generals, 8 admirals, numerous bankers, television executives, newspaper editors, cabinet ministers, politicians, the
Secret Service chiefs, Giulio Grassini, and General Giuseppe Santovito, Head of the financial police Orazio Giannini.
SOME MEMBERS OF THE P2 MASONIC LODGES IN THE CATHOLIC HIERARCHY:
Cardinal Baggio, Monsignor Donato de Bonis (Vatican Bank), Archbishop Paul Marcinkus, Monsignor Pasguale Macchi (the Pope John Paul's secretary), Luigi Mennini, Ugo Poletti (cardinal vicar of Rome), Michele Sindona (Catholic financier), Pellegrino de Strobel
