Bribesville

November 8, 2011

To understand the world of Freemasonry, you too have to understand how many things work in Italy, the home of the Illuminati’s Black Nobility of families. During those years when the P2 lodge was headed by Licio Gelli, it was implicated in numerous Italian crimes and mysteries, including the nationwide bribe scandal Tangentopoli, the collapse of the Vatican-affiliated Banco Ambrosiano, and the murders of journalist Mino Pecorelli and banker Roberto Calvi. Carmine Pecorelli [1928-1979] known as “Mino”, was an Italian “maverick journalist”, shot dead four times in his car in Rome a year after former Prime Minister Aldo Moro’s 1978 kidnapping and subsequent killing. According to Pecorelli, Moros kidnapping had been organised by a “lucid superpower”. Pecorelli’s name was on Licio Gelli’s list of Propaganda Due Masonic members, discovered in 1980 by the Italian police. P2 was sometimes referred to as a “state within a state” or a “shadow government”, whom among its members were prominent journalists, parliamentarians, industrialists, and military leaders – including the then-future Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi; the House of Savoy pretender to the Italian throne Victor Emmanuel; and the heads of all three Italian intelligence services. [1]
Tangentopoli is Italian for Bribe city/bribesville and was the name used to indicate the corruption-based system in politics that had its heyday in Italy in the 1980’s and early 1990’s until the “Mani pulite” [Italian for clean hands] a Italian judicial investigation into political corruption delivered it a knockout blow in 1992.
The Mani pulite investigations were against widespread corruption and bribery in Italian administrative, political, and business circles, included the examination of the links between the Mafia and over 400 members of parliament, as well as the bringing of charges against 160 individuals about payment of bribes to the state owned electricity company, ENEL, in May 1995. On the 30th October 1993 the President of the electronic conglomerate Olivetti, Carlo de Benedetti, was imprisoned after admitting the payment of 11 billion lire [$7 million] to political parties in return for state contracts. A host of government ministers from the 1980s were convicted of accepting illegal payments either for themselves or their political parties, the most prominent being ex-Prime Minister Bettino Craxi, who was sentenced in 1994 [in absentia] to eight and a half and five and a half years imprisonment on two accounts of corruption, with over 40 charges then still pending, as he died in 2000. [2]
Furthermore, Paolo Berlusconi, the brother of Prime Minister Berlusconi who had been elected on a promise to fight corruption, was sentenced on the 22nd December 1994, to seven months imprisonment on charges of bribery as manager of his brother’s holding company; Fininvest. Connected with these efforts to purge the Italian establishment, intensified efforts were made part of the campaign against the Mafia, when in 1993 around 22,000 people were under investigation for links with the organisation. On the 27th August 1994 one of the most sought-after Mafiosi, Lorenzo Tinnirello, was arrested and charged with 119 murders. In addition, there were investigations against a number of prominent politicians, such as the former Minister of Defence, Salvo Ando, and the former chairman of the Sicilian Christian Democrats, Calogero Mannino.
The most prominent case revolved around ex-Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti, who was accused of being a member and protector of the Mafia for fourteen years. The charges against Andreotti, who more than any other politician represented the political system during the late 1970s and 1980s, epitomised the moral bankruptcy of the established parties and directly contributed to their collapse in 1993-4. At the same time, it proved difficult to find a new political leadership which had sufficient experience of politics to be successful, but which had not taken part in the corruption of the 1980s and early 1990s. In 1999 the problems facing the prosecution were typified by Andreotti’s acquittal, and the re-election of Berlusconi as Prime Minister in 2001. – P2 came to light through the investigations into the collapse of Michele Sindona’s [the Shark] financial empire, and who was allegedly fatally poisoned by cyanide in his coffee in 1986 whilst in prison serving a 25 year sentence for the murder of lawyer Giorgio Ambrosoli. Sindona was educated by the Jesuits, and had been sentenced to life in 1984.
Until recently, and for hundreds of years previously, any member of the Catholic Church who was found to be a Freemason was automatically excommunicated, yet despite this many members of the Roman Curia were discovered to be covert members of P2 [3]. The Roman Curia is the administrative apparatus of the Holy See and the central governing body of the entire Roman Catholic Church, [4] together with the Pope, it coordinates and provides the necessary central organisation for the correct functioning of the Church and the achievement of its goals; In exercising supreme, full, and immediate power in the universal Church, the Roman pontiff makes use of the departments of the Roman Curia which, therefore, perform their duties in his name and with his authority for the good of the churches and in the service of the sacred pastors; The decree concerning the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church, Christus Dominus.] Subsequently, in 1983, a new Canon Law announced that this would cease. Thereafter, any member of the Roman Church was now free to become a Freemason. Within the Catholic Church, Opus Dei is also criticised for allegedly seeking independence and more influence. Though it must be said, despite all these misgivings, the Jesuit Order are more like the SAS arm of the Catholic Church and that Opus Dei is more like the Boy’s Scouts in comparison, and whose head of the Jesuits is referred to and known as the Black Pope/the Superior General, i.e. the daddy of them all!
