Brussels and Rome:
Four common law Sheriffs who were assaulted by Vatican officers acting under the orders of Pope Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, have filed a criminal lawsuit in European courts that names Bergoglio and eleven other officials as participants in a “monstrous criminal conspiracy”.
The claim was filed on July 11 in the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels and in the civil court of an undisclosed European nation. Subpoenas were issued the same day to Pope Francis and eleven other men, all of whom are named as defendants in the lawsuit and as active members and participants in “a centuries-old Catholic child sacrificial cult known as the Ninth Circle”.
The defendants are also named as co-conspirators in the disappearance of eight children from Catholic facilities in Switzerland, Belgium and Italy.
Besides Pope Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, the named defendants in the lawsuit are:
– Elio di Rupo, former Prime Minister of Belgium
– Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State
– Cardinal Sean Brady, former head Catholic prelate of Ireland
– Count Georges Jacobs, Belgian Catholic businessman, head of UCB Biopharmaceuticals and Director of the Cercle Lorraine or “Club van Lotharingen” , Brussels
– Count Luc Jacques Bertrand, Belgian Jesuit banker, Director of the Cercle Lorraine
– Paul De Keersmaeker, Belgian Catholic businessman, former European Union Parliamentarian, member of the Cercle Lorraine
– Kees van Korlaar, Criminal underworld member of “Ndrangheta”, Belgian businessman, member of the Cercle Lorraine
– Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, Catholic Prelate of Dublin diocese
– Bishop Charles Morerod, Catholic Prelate of Geneva
– Rev. Dr. Olav Fykse Tveit, General Secretary, World Council of Churches
– Bishop Mark MacDonald, Prelate, Anglican Church in Canada and North American Executive Officer of the World Council of Churches
These twelve subpoenaed defendants have thirty days to respond to the Summons and appear in person or through their lawyers in Court Examination for Discovery proceedings.
In related news, a secret conclave of the Vatican Curia, or College of Cardinals, continues to debate who will replace Jorge Bergoglio as the Bishop of Rome. According to a source in the Vatican, the conclave has been in session since July 5 and is deadlocked in their choice of a successor to the controversy-plagued Bergoglio.
According to the source, “Either (former Pope Benedict) Joseph Ratzinger will be given the Papal crown again or more likely, an African Cardinal will be chosen, probably Arinze of Nigeria or Napier of South Africa. What is certain is that Bergoglio is finished. It’s just a matter of time.”
Further updates of the court case against Jorge Bergoglio and the other named defendants will be forthcoming, including on Here We Stand, this Sunday at 3 pm pacific, 6 pm eastern, 11 pm GMT at www.bbsradio.com/herewestand .

A Breaking News Communique from the International Tribunal of Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS)Issued 5 July, 2018, 1700 hrs GMT
Brussels and Rome:
Four common law peace officers who were assaulted and beaten by Vatican security forces on June 21 are suing “Pope Francis”, Jorge Bergoglio, in a European court of law. The four men had attempted to enforce a lawful arrest warrant on Bergoglio when they suffered an unprovoked attack by Vatican police who were acting under the direct orders and “command responsibility” of Bergoglio.
The four plaintiffs filed a Statement of Claim today that names Jorge Bergoglio as well as five prominent Europeans as parties to “an aggravated assault with murderous intent designed to obstruct justice and aid and abet a criminal conspiracy involving child torture and sacrifice, known as the Ninth Circle”.
The plaintiffs’ Claim was also filed with the Criminal Trial Division of the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels, which in February 2013 successfully convicted and deposed Pope Benedict and three top Vatican officials for Crimes against Humanity.
“Pope Francis” and the other defendants will be duly served a Summons this week to appear in court and answer these charges, including their knowledge of and involvement in the Ninth Circle coven and the disappearance of eight children from Catholic church facilities in Switzerland and Italy.
In Rome today, a source in the Vatican stated that a special conclave of the Curia, the governing College of Cardinals, has been convened to discuss whether to ask for the immediate resignation of “Pope Francis”, Jorge Bergoglio.
According to the source, the Cardinals are concerned about Bergoglio’s upcoming visit to Ireland where local common law Sheriffs plan to detain him under the same standing arrest warrant that the assaulted peace officers in Geneva tried to enforce. To quote the source,
“If they’re going to get rid of Il Papa (Bergoglio) it will be before August 25, when he is scheduled to lead a public mass in Dublin. There’s a feeling of dread among the Cardinals, that there is too much attention on Il Papa and his associations, like there was on Benedict. The Cardinals are protecting their cult and their money.”
Further reports on this and related issues are forthcoming, including on Here We Stand this Sunday July 8 at 3 pm pacific, 11 pm GMT at www.bbsradio.com/herewestand .

In this breaking exclusive interview, Erika, a former nurse at the catholic St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, speaks of how she witnessed the final days of genocide survivor William Combes. She is convinced that all of his symptoms indicate that he died of arsenic poisoning, not “tuberculosis” as the British Columbia Coroner claims. William was a witness to the abduction of ten children by “Queen Elizabeth” Windsor on October 10, 1964 at the catholic Kamloops Indian residential school. William died suddenly in hospital shortly before he was to go public about the abduction and permanent disappearance of the ten children.

Growing numbers of people are rallying to our new Nation, and over half of Canadians support our aim of severing all ties with the British monarchy and creating a Republic. The task now is to make the dream a reality.”

Lest We Forget: The Eviction and the Occupation that changed Canada forever
Posted on April 6, 2018 by Kevin
by Kevin D. Annett / Eagle Strong Voice
Former legal agent of hereditary Siem Kiapilano of the Squamish Nation
Church Eviction, March 16, 2008: Elder Kiapilano (centre) with Kevin Annett (right) and Ricky Lavallee (left), who was later murdered by Vancouver police
On March 4, 2008, a traditional indigenous elder walked into the British Columbia Supreme Court in downtown Vancouver and filed an Eviction Notice against the churches that destroyed his people. Twelve days later, the same survivor led an occupation of one of those churches to enforce that Notice and declare the churches to be illegally trespassing on his land. That same month, the Canadian government reacted, and the cover up of Canada’s home grown Genocide began in earnest.
Here is that story, nearly erased from memory by the guilty:
He was a frail man who looked older than his seventy years. We first met in the studio of Vancouver Co-op Radio in the waning months of 2007, when I was still a broadcaster there. The man’s name was Gerry Kiapilano. He told me he was the hereditary Siem, or elder, of the Squamish Nation, on whose stolen land Vancouver squats.
“The Mounties and the priests threw my grandfather out into the snow one night” Gerry described on the air that first day. “After that, our family was banned from the Squamish reservation. The government puppet chiefs were moved in to replace us. They’re still running the show on the reserve.”
Like every residential school survivor I’ve come to know, Gerry circled around the facts of his own torture like someone on the edge of a viper pit. He did relate that other children had been killed right in front of him by Catholic priests, but he stayed mute about what had been done to him. His eyes, of course, said much more.
Gerry Kiapilano was a man on his purpose. Over tea, soon after our interview, he said bluntly to me,
“Those churches never asked our permission to come here or to kidnap us from our families. They’re trespassing on our land. I heard what you’ve been doing and I’m with you. We’ve got to make those murderers pay.”
Gerry was not a vengeful soul, but he meant what he said. The Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada had to pay, literally. They owed his nation back rent of nearly a century, as well as a moral restitution for their mass murder of children that was incalculable. And until such simple justice could be done, they had no right to stay on his land. He was about to issue all three of the churches a legal eviction notice, and he wanted my help.
“I know about your name Eagle Strong Voice and how the Anishinabe people adopted you. So I’m going to appoint you my fiduciary agent” he declared gently. “I’m empowering you to enforce the Eviction and bring those churches to justice.”
I accepted the appointment with something more than glee and less than trepidation. For in those halcyon days before the government’s big spin and payoff operation had begun, residential school survivors were ready to protest at the drop of a hat. Gerry Kiapilano and I quickly did the rounds of Vancouver’s downtown eastside and its thousands of genocide survivors, recruiting as we went. By the new year we had assembled a small guerilla army, and were ready to act. But first we went to court.
The young woman behind the counter in the Law Court’s Registry section gave Gerry an odd stare as he approached with his documents. She seemed even more perplexed when she read them. I suppose it isn’t every day that an Indian files an Eviction Notice against the system. But as my old radical buddy Joe Hendsbee used to observe, the sheer maze of any state bureaucracy allows you to drive a Mack truck through its loopholes, and the British Columbia Supreme Court was no exception that day. The blithe functionary stamped Gerry’s papers and filed them in the Court Registry as Case Docket Number S036483. It was March 4, 2008, and Gerry Kiapilano had his legal Eviction Notice against the churches. He promptly faxed them all copies.
“I’ve given them ten days to answer this” he muttered as we left the Law Courts, his eyes aglow. “After that, they’re illegal trespassers and we can lay claim to their property. That’s the law.”
The God Talkers never replied, of course. The ten days came and went, and Gerry – who all of us came to call “Kap” for short – gave me, as his legal agent, the green light to enforce the Eviction Notice. Well, say no more!
That next Sunday dawned bright and clear. On cue, our people gathered at appointed rallying points and converged on Holy Rosary Catholic Cathedral from three directions, so as not to attract too much cop-attention. But we need not have worried. Thanks to that hidden hand that so often has guided and guarded our efforts, our target stood wide open and defenseless as we approached. The phalanx of police and Knights of Columbus goons who usually barred the Cathedral’s entrance were absent that morning. The doors stood open.
“That’s a sign, alright” I said to Kap, who strode alongside me as we led our fifty people towards the Cathedral. “Let’s go!”
What followed is the stuff of high drama: the perplexed and helpless clergy backing away from our tide of humanity, flowing into the sanctuary as the organ moaned some absurd refrain; the mostly-curious parishioners, gazing at our banner that called for their victims to receive a proper burial; and our wondrous crowd of former victims who stood unafraid and united in the face of what had ravaged them, handing the pew sitters a notice that they were illegal trespassers on other peoples’ land, and had to leave. We were counting coup against a huge and seemingly unbeatable opponent, and everyone there knew it.
The fallout came quickly. That same afternoon I received a frantic phone call from the Cathedral’s Diocesan lawyer, who begged me to call off any more church occupations. Easter was approaching, after all.
“Well, what better time to resurrect justice in this land?” I answered the paper pusher, who didn’t seem amused.
But the response went further. That same week, the federal government hurriedly announced the launching of that absurd misnomer, the “Truth and Reconciliation Commission”: a huge public relations stunt that was about neither. The Big Spin had begun, but only because Kap and our people had belted Goliath one right between the eyes.
“I’m counting on you to keep this up” Kap exhorted me after the news broke. “They’re going to try to bury all this but we can’t let them. You have my authority to occupy these churches and shut them down for good, and bring their leaders to trial.”
Over the subsequent years I did precisely that, even as far away as Rome and London and Brussels. And even though the results aren’t completely obvious yet, our bullet has plowed into the heart of the Beast of Church and State even as it continues to stampede towards oblivion. Time and the Truth will do the rest.
It is the fate of man to forget, wrote Emerson. The dying powers that pretend to be have for now wiped memories clean and buried the fact of their Group Crime and the few of us who exposed and confronted it with our last measure of devotion. Most of the leaders of our action that day were dead within a couple of years from obvious foul play, and Kap himself retired into an unexplained reclusion. But the walls are coming down, nevertheless, because an example was made. We showed the world that the killers who hide behind clerical robes have no place among us anymore and must leave our land. We demonstrated that power lies not with the rich criminals but with We the People, if only we will allow the justice in our own hearts to blossom into right action.
Go and do likewise.

Not In Our Name: A Declaration of Concerned Protestant and Catholic Clergy and Laity, with a Ten Point Program to Bring the Church to Justice and Protect the Innocent
Posted on April 1, 2018 by Kevin
We are a group of clergy and former clergy of both Protestant and Catholic faiths who are united in our fundamental rejection of the genocidal legacy of Christendom, which is an empire of conquest and violence arising from the fusion of church and state under the later Roman emperors.
Christendom operates today through wealthy, state-protected church organizations which are legal corporations answerable neither to God nor to their own congregations of believers.
Christendom is a heresy and a denial of the supremacy of Christ and his sacrifice. For we owe our allegiance to God, not to church bodies deriving their power and legitimacy from state and temporal powers, and worldly wealth.
As Christ is manifest in every man and woman, since the kingdom of heaven is within us, and his kingdom is not of this world, then any church claiming to represent him is fraudulently denying Christ as Lord, and the ultimate sanctity of the human person.
We are compelled to make this declaration now because of the reign of lies and violence that predominates in the church, and of the history of brutality, genocide and destruction enacted over millennia by both Catholic and Protestant churches on non-Christians and the innocent.
This slaughter began over fifteen centuries ago, at the beginning of Christendom, and continues today.
The killing of millions of women and dissident Christians under Inquisitions, the Crusading ethic of Indulgence – which promised spiritual cleansing to anyone who killed Jews, Muslims and other “enemies of the faith” – and the eventual genocide of untold millions of indigenous nations around the world: all of this arose from the Church’s belief that it has the power to kill and conquer in the name of the non-violent Jesus.
The Vatican is responsible for the greatest slaughter of humanity in history because of two papal bulls (Romanus Pontifex, 1455, and Inter Catera, 1493) – proclaimed and still operative under so-called Canon Law – that sanctioned and encouraged the destruction and enslavement of all non-Christian peoples: the majority of humanity. The wealth of the Vatican today rests upon the stolen and unreturned lands of many of those nations.
Is it surprising, then, that for just as long, the Church has sanctioned the torture, abuse and even murder of innocent children in its orphanages, sweatshops, and “residential schools” around the world? Are we surprised that such a violent organization places its own material survival ahead of justice for the innocents it has wronged? Or, that under the canon law known as Crimen Solicitationas, every priest is expected to hide the evidence of the rape of children and allow this abomination to go unpunished, or face expulsion from the church?
We are aware that Protestant churches as well are guilty of these crimes, and regularly shelter rapists and other criminals in their ranks. The example may be set by Rome, but it is actively copied by others.
These facts are irrefutable, and yet Christians continue to give their attendance, money and allegiance to the church corporations with such blood on their hands and lies on their lips.
All of these crimes against God and humanity have been done in our name. We have, by commission and omission, given our support to the anti-Christ in our midst and allowed ourselves to be used to commit the worst of all sins: violence against the sacred holy spirit of God and the innocent.
For this reason, and to cleanse ourselves of this enormous apostasy and wrong, we are issuing the following Ten Point Program. We believe that these measures are required for the church to be brought under public control so that it no longer operates as a secret, criminal body preying on the innocent.
1. The Church must issue full reparations to all of its victims according to their wishes and needs. The Church must pay for all of the costs incurred by their damage to these victims, including all medical, counseling and retraining costs, and all loss of income caused by their disability or grief and suffering.
2. The Church must return all land and property taken from its victims, and restore and return all of the wealth generated by their exploitation of their victims to them, including the wealth gained through forced, unpaid or low paid labor.
3. The Church must surrender for a proper burial, unconditionally and at its own expense, the remains of all those who died in their institutions or under their care.
4. The Church must surrender to secular authorities without conditions all the evidence, and all the perpetrators and their accessories, connected to such deaths and to any other crimes against children and others under church care. The Church must participate unconditionally in any legal or human rights inquiries into their crimes and freely disclose their records to such investigations.
5. Those responsible for crimes against children and others in church facilities, including the Pope, must be arrested and tried in civil or international courts of law, and cannot be shielded from prosecution by any form of immunity or by so-called “canon law”.
6. All clergy and church employees must be licensed and monitored as public servants, and be legally compelled to swear a public, binding oath to protect the rights and sanctity of children, and disclose any harm done to them, if need be against the orders of the Church itself.
7. All tax exemptions, immunities, legal safeguards and special privileges enjoyed by the Church must be abolished.
8. Diplomatic recognition of the Vatican and its status as a so-called “state” must be annulled.
9. All special concordats and financial agreements with the Vatican must be annulled, and all public funds and taxes given to the Vatican must be returned to their respective governments.
10. The wealth and property of all church bodies larger than a single congregation must be nationalized and placed under public ownership, so that the Church may function as a servant of the community.
We, the founding clergy of the Protestant and Roman Catholic faiths united in our group Not in Our Name, do solemnly pledge ourselves to this program and allegiance, and call upon all Christians and clergy to do the same.
Henceforth, and until this Program is enacted and the Church is disestablished as a corporate, self-governing, criminal body, we will conduct ourselves and our pastoral duties separate from and in opposition to corporate Christendom and its existing churches.
