Wikileaks Confirms Rad Trad 'Conspiracy Theory': Catholic Church Infiltrated Featured

A report by Edmond Kozak reveals that longtime Clinton confidants are now openly discussing how the Catholic Church needs to be further infiltrated with progressive ideology in order to “foment revolution” that will advance their radical agenda.

It would seem that decades-old rad-trad “paranoia” is here being corroborated as fact by political elites at the highest levels of power and influence. Indeed, there has been an infiltration of the Catholic Church—it’s ongoing, and it’s bound and determined to destroy the traditional moral theology and influence of the Catholic Church in America and beyond.

A newly leaked email shows Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, discussing this infiltration with Left-wing activist Sandy Newman:

“There needs to be a Catholic Spring, in which Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic Church,” Sandy Newman, president and founder of the progressive nonprofit Voices for Progress, writes to Podesta in an email titled “opening for a Catholic Spring? just musing.”

Newman, who is Jewish, admits he does not know much about the Catholic Church and isn’t volunteering personally to subvert Catholic teachings. “Even if the idea isn’t crazy, I don’t qualify to be involved and I have not thought at all about how one would ‘plant the seeds of the revolution,’ or who would plant them.”

In response, Podesta assures Newman to rest easy for he and his progressive pals have already created organizations explicitly designed to infiltrate the Catholic Church with progressive ideology, though he cautions that the time may not be right for full revolution — just yet.

“We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up,” Podesta writes.

You got that? Clinton’s top dogs are plotting the promotion of revolution in the Catholic Church as political leverage to advance her agenda. One wonders how long, exactly, the radical Left in this country has been at this? Maybe as far back as Vatican II? Of course! The “rad trads” have been shouting this from the housetops for fifty years -- Podesta is merely making an observation of the obvious.  

Still, this leaked bigotry out of Camp Clinton is less than newsworthy to our friends over at Clinton News Network (CNN), still busy congratulating themselves for having unearthed video proof that, at least eleven years ago, Donald Trump was nearly as degenerate as they are. (Why is it always such huge news for CNN when virtue takes a hit? They seem to take great delight in it.)

Here at The Remnant we consider this an important story, not because it comes as a surprise to us (it does not), but rather because it is another smoking gun — leaked email and anti-Catholic plotting that hearkens back to the days of Bella Dodd and so many allegations of leftists, Marxists, Communists and homosexuals infiltrating the Catholic Church in order to promote an anti-Christian agenda.

Essentially, this leaked email provides evidence of the fact that fomenting revolution in the Catholic Church is now (and always has been) a key component to the rise of a new social order

It was for this reason that Pope Paul VI in dramatic fashion stepped off the papal throne at the end of the second session of the Second Vatican Council in 1963 and dramatically set his crown on his altar in St. Peter’s, thus renouncing papal kingship in deference to the new social order of the people that looked down with distain on the crowned heads of Christendom.

It was for this very reason that  the traditional Catholic liturgy had to be destroyed, so that Catholics would gradually shift focus from God to "we the people" and lose their very distinctive identity as Catholics in the process. 

First Latin, then kneeling, then sacrifice, then fish on Fridays, then altars, then altar boys, now public adulterers barred from the rail—it all had to go in order to make room for a Novus Ordo Seclorum and a new kind of Catholic that would see Christ's holy Church as just one among many equals. And if dogma could be set aside, so too could morality, which emboldened "cafeteria Catholics" to eventually think nothing of voting for the most pro-death and anti-Catholic candidates in American history. 

It was for this reason and to attain this end that Catholic catechisms had to be watered down to the point of absurdity, the Catholic priesthood had to be infiltrated, Catholic nuns Gloriasteinemized, popes modernized and laity protestantized. The Catholic Church had to undergo a systematic purging of all things truly Catholic. Why? Because Catholics had always stood in the path of Christophobes and their thousand-year reichs.

The political revolutions today and for the past five hundred years have been to greater or lesser degrees all about one fundamental objective: Tear down the Social Kingship of Christ, destroy the Christian confessional state, bury Christendom, and infiltrate and neutralize the only Church that ever claimed to be the one, true Church of Christ outside of which there is no salvation.

The seeds of this revolution were first planted in the tortured souls of heretics, wormed their way into the body politic, eventually rising to heights sufficient to decapitate the kings and queens of holy Christendom, until finally, today, having destroyed the venerable Roman Rite and reoriented the Church, they work to remake the pope himself in their very own diabolic image and likeness.

And the insufferably gullible neo-Catholics who still stubbornly deny this reality, decided long ago that they would not resist, that the new and improved liturgy, for example, was a great gift from God, and that we are all better off without the venerable Roman Rite of our fathers. They thus raised not a whimper of protest against the liturgical revolution.

Then they decided that the imposed equalizing of the ends of marriage was a good idea after all, and that just as we could come up with Catholic contraception, so too we could come up with Catholic divorce. So they went right along with the sexual revolution, too.

Up next? Toppled high altars, pulverized sanctuaries, communion rails smashed along with statues, the advent of altar girls, Communion in the hand, ladies handing out Communion, lady lectors, lady deacons and cardinals—you name it, the Neo-Catholics went along with it all.

At the end of the day, in fact, about the only thing they managed to oppose was the Catholic counterrevolution — The Remnant, Archbishop Lefebvre, the Society of St. Pius X, the “rad trads”.  These poor people still don't understand that the Church has been infiltrated and the fort betrayed. And today they are out there on their little bloggyhorses telling God and everybody to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Clearly, the frog is fully cooked. Time to take it out of the pan and eat it. 

I’m father to seven children—all homeschooled. I wish that I occupied the parallel universe where those sitting out elections in anticipation of the perfect Christian candidate rising up out of the sulfuric marshes of the Kingdom of Satan are considered heroes. But I’ve got kids to raise, here in what’s left of the real world. We’re behind enemy lines, and it’s a fight for survival.

What do we do next month? Isn't it obvious? We need to buy time. We need to march into that polling booth and vote to mitigate massive evil to the common good while undermining the political agenda of the anti-Christians who will crucify Christ all over again and us along with Him if given half a chance.

I couldn’t possibly care any less if I’m lambasted as paranoid when I say—no, when I insist! —that Hillary Clinton is coming for our children.

She’s gunning for our ability as fathers and mothers to defend our children, hearth and home.

She wants what’s left of our country to be overrun by those who have taken blood oaths to eradicate Christianity.

She wants to force us into violating our own consciences by levying blood taxes for the holocaust of millions of unborn babies.

She wants us fully dependent on Big Brother.

And she wants all of this to happen, not decades from now, but soon…in the next few months.

Paranoid? Really? My family was just summarily kicked out of our healthcare plan, effective January 2017. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota simply dropped us along with thousands like us who own and operate small businesses. Thank you, Mr. President. But I can keep my doctor, right?

Remember when we were dismissed as “paranoid” for predicting that the socialist behemoth Obamacare was nothing more than a Trojan Horse against the middle class? Well, here we are, the place where being "paranoid" actually means being awake and aware.

Persecution rising? It's already here.

The Remnant was targeted as a “hate group” almost ten years ago by the Leftist hatemongers at the Southern Poverty Law Center. This group has been going around for years trying to criminalize the very thing Podesta is talking about in his leaked email—an “outdated” and “medieval” Catholic attitude toward salvation, morality, gender ideology, the supremacy of Christ’s holy Church above all others, etc. He knows exactly what he’s talking about because that’s what his bosses have been doing for years--working
to criminalize it all in their little global village.

They want Catholics who follow that old medieval religion to be harassed, intimidated, even placed on the no-fly lists that Hillary Clinton has promised to ramp up and enforce once elected.

They want to put Catholics who will not apostatize when it comes to abortion and transgenderism—in jail! Powerful special interest groups such as the SPLC have been quietly working with Washington to set up an infrastructure to support widespread persecution of Christians in this country when the time comes, and I believe that time is nearly here.  The finish line could be November 8, 2016, in fact. 

Over the past ten years, we’ve experienced firsthand what it feels like to be hounded and threatened by Far-Left radicals. It ain’t fun!, which is why this is war. Our way of life as Christians, as well as the souls of our children, is at stake. This is no time to climb up onto our high horses and refuse to fight, just because the generals that lead us were not made in the mold of Charlemagne (and probably don’t even know who he was). We're not fighting for the generals. We're fighting for survival.

Never Trump? I suspect the Ivory Towers occupied by those telling us to sit out this next election are not filled with little children, stay-at-home moms, and a thriving homeschool.

I don’t live in an Ivory Tower. See you at the polls.
