Salus populi romani: May 20, 2020 — Live from Rome!



Perpetual Supplica


This devotion is inspired by the request made by Our Lady Herself in
Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich’s Vision of

August 25, 1822: “I know not now how I went to Rome last night, but I found myself near the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Around it I saw crowds of poor, pious souls, in great distress and anxiety on account of the Pope’s disappearance and the agitation and alarming reports throughout the city. Led by one common impulse, they had come to invoke the Mother of God. They did not expect to find the church open, they intended only to pray outside. But I was inside, I opened the door and they entered, astounded at the door’s opening of itself. I was standing aloof where they could not see me. There was no service, only the chancel-lamps were burning, and the people knelt in quiet prayer. Then the Mother of God appeared. She said that great tribulations were at hand; that the people must pray earnestly with extended arms, if only for the length of three Our Fathers, for it was thus that her Son had prayed for them upon the Cross; that they should rise at midnight to pray thus; that they should continue to come to Her church which they would always find open; and that they should, above all, pray for the extirpation of the Church of Darkness. … I know not whether the people saw the apparition or not, but they must have been impressed by something supernatural for, when the Blessed Virgin said they should pray to God with arms extended, all lifted up their arms … It seemed to be an association of prayer.” From this time Sister Emmerich assisted nightly at the pious exercises at Santa Maria Maggiore.

Germany’s Constitutional Court: EU Central Bank’s Bond Purchases are unconstitutional and unlawful

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

On May 5, 2020, the Bundesverfassungsgericht, German’s Federal Constitutional Court, handed down a ruling which is sending shock waves through the Eurozone and through the European Union: Bond purchases by the EU Central Bank of German Government Bonds are unconstitutional and unlawful, so long as the purchases are not authorized by the German Government and the German Parliament.

Wikipedia describes the Court, as follows:

The Federal Constitutional Court (German: Bundesverfassungsgericht; abbreviated: BVerfG) is the supreme constitutional court for the Federal Republic of Germany, established by the constitution or Basic Law (Grundgesetz) of Germany. Since its inception with the beginning of the post-World War II republic, the court has been located in the city of Karlsruhe, which is also the seat of the Federal Court of Justice.[2]

The main task of the Federal Constitutional Court is judicial review, and it may declare legislation unconstitutional, thus rendering them ineffective. In this respect, it is similar to other supreme courts with judicial review powers, yet the court possesses a number of additional powers, and is regarded as among the most interventionist and powerful national courts in the world. Unlike other supreme courts, the constitutional court is not an integral stage of the judicial or appeals process (aside from cases concerning constitutional or public international law), and does not serve as a regular appellate court from lower courts or the Federal Supreme Courts on any violation of federal laws.

The court’s jurisdiction is focused on constitutional issues and the compliance of all governmental institutions with the constitution. Constitutional amendments or changes passed by the Parliament are subject to its judicial review, since they have to be compatible with the most basic principles of the Grundgesetz defined by the eternity clause.

The EU Central Bank has been buying the government bonds of EU Member States in an financial maneuver called quantitative easing. By this means it has sought to prevent the national bankruptcies of Italy and Spain, for example, whose governmental spending for decades has exceeded the revenue of each of their governments.

Since March of 2015, the EU Central Bank has purchased 2.7 Trillion Euros word of governmental debt, the equivalent of about 3.2 Trillion US Dollars. The entire national debt of Italy is about 2.4 Trillion Euro, and that of Spain in 2018 was about 1.2 billion US dollars.

The defiant ruling of the German High Court will likely be followed by courts in Poland and Hungary which have long complained about the arrogation of right by the EU Institutions.

But without the purchase of government debt, the EU is likely to break apart, as it would mean the economic collapse of chief members of the Euro Zone and the severe devaluation of the Euro.

In addition, the heightened risk of such collapses will spur political movements across the continent which want out of the EU after the manner of the UK.

Dario Orgoglio interviews General Pappalardo

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Here is a brief summary in English of the interview. The Q and A in English are paraphrases and not direct quotations.

Q. Do you have the intention to enter politics?

A. I will never join a party. But I do intend to present a list of reforms, but the Constitution requires that every candidate declare his candidacy in a party.

Q. Are you a member of the Right or Left?

A. I come from a family of Carabinieri. When I became a Carabiniere I swore loyalty to the Republic, the Constitution and the people, and to forego favoritism. I will continue on this path.

Q. You are known for opposing Matteo Salvini when he stopped the ship with illegal immigrants from docking, what is your position on immigration?

A. Immigration into Italy has been regulated according to the intentions of international groups which want to exploit Italy. I want a law to regulate immigration and to stop illegal immigration.

Q. Are you are a Freemason? This question is raised by some YouTuber’s who have watched your hand gestures.

A. When, I was young and had just joined the Carabinieri and was a Captain, I was approached by one of these. I told them I am in love with one woman, be patient: the Carabinieri. I do not want to get involved in any sort of infidelity.

Q. Why did the U.N. High Commissioner for on Human Rights tweet to President Trump? And why did they contact you?

A. Because I am the only head of a party in Italy who is speaking about these violations so openly. She contacted Trump because he is one of the most powerful in the world. The Gilet Arancioni are the only ones in Italy taking action.

Q. What does it mean for you to be an Italian?

A. To belong to a history of law and economic inventions, which originates in Italy, a land of such rich culture and art. You can see the greatness of our history, when in the English speaking world, when they speak of legal principles, they always cite them in Latin. In the last 30 years Italy has produced nothing new, she has only copied from other countries. During this comment, he denounces in passing the Mafia of St. Gall. — We need to return to the center of the world, in matters of Christianity and law and economy, and to make Italy a ecological garden.

Q. The protests that you are organizing will be only regional on June 2, because Gilet Arancioni has always been a group to observe the law?

A. We go to vote on May 30 in the Regions, and will provide a way for all to vote via their cell phones: 1) to send this government back home, 2) to make a law for elections for October, 3) to print 700 billion in a new Lira to give help to families and businesses: 500 to each family, for each child, and 20,000 to each small and medium businesses.

Q. EU law allows the printing of a parallel currency in time of emergency. We are already in such a time?

A. Conte can do this, it is allowed. But why does he not do this? Because he intends to destroy the families and businesses of Italy, and the tourist industry.

Q. What will you do if Gilet Arancioni’s effort fails.

A. If Italians fail to act like a free people, I will go back to my house and no longer mix with them. I want nothing to do with a people who want to be slaves, who want to be sheeple. I will return to Tunisia, until Italians want to drive this Dictatorship out of Italy.

Q. If you had the opportunity to chose the next President of Italy who would you chose?

A. The People need to chose their own President. I can name some but I do not want to transgress the freedom of the People by naming anyone.

In conclusion, Dario reminds everyone to vote at VotiamoItalia.It.

Avv. Polacco: The New Norms of the Italian government are designed to destroy the family and small businesses

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

First, in response to Attorney Polacco’s request, thousands of petitions have been sent to the two Houses of Parliament at Rome, requests for the annulment of all the fines imposed on the citizenry during the Covid-19 crisis, as has already been granted in other countries such as Albania. At the end of this video, Polacco says the Senate has begun to take action on this matter. Keep sending these petitions, he adds.

As FromRome.Info reported this morning, in the video which analysed the gestures of Giuseppe Conte to unmask his true intentions: to destroy the family, the savings, and the small businesses of Italy.

As Attorney Edoardo Polacco brings to light, in this video, not only has Conte’s government shamed Italy, which at Rome was the source of jurisprudence in ancient times with Roman Law, but in the matter of a few days, there have been established in Italy more norms to be observed by the people that ever were in the last 30 years of history of the Italian parliament.

From my point of view, this is a sign that Conte is attempting to set up a Marxist Totalitarian State by legislating the way to it.

To destroy families, the new norms from the Government, the Regions and the Mayors of Cities are so complex, it is easy for the police — whom Polacco says have been ordered to fine as many citizens as possible for any violation — to invent a reason to fine anyone at any time.

To destroy small businesses, the new norms are so complex that a small business with employees might have to spend up to a million euros to observe the new norms without any financial support form the government to do so.

The absurdity of the norms from Conte’s government is shown in this, that it has closed the thermal baths throughout Italy, even though it is known that the hot waters of such places are the most hygienic in the world, not to mention that the virus cannot live in hot water!

To destroy small businesses which have a store which is 450 sq feet of space, only 1 customer is allowed in at one time! At that rate, no business could survive! — Attorney asks rhetorically: Have you decided to destroy every small business man in this category? Is that the reason for this law?

As regards the medical masks — though the head of the Civil Protection Service himself said to an audience of 8 million on TV that it serves no purpose to wear one and he himself does not wear one — there is no scientific proof that it is helpful to wear one, rather they then to determine that they are harmful.  In the new Decree-Law, the wearing of the masks is required in all interior spaces open to the public where it may happen that the social distance required not be observed. Thus, it is written in such a way to require that the mask always be worn, since it is based on a possibility which the business owner is responsible to maintain! Thus aiming to destroy him with the sanctions for violation which go from 300 to 7000 of euros!

Then, in Lazio, the Regional government has made illegal, for the next 30 days, that lovers go for a walk or to a bar or restaurant together! You can imagine, with the nature of Italians, how many might end up with a fine in the region around Rome!

The new norms, therefore, have been written in such a way as to turn the Police into a Mafia which can destroy any business they want or that the ruling party or Government wants. This is thus not only a law to destroy the economy but to destroy all civil liberty of free speech and political activity.

The Attorney Polacco says he still believes in jurisprudence, though he says that the courts are  no longer functioning and the district attorneys are taking no action to defend the constitutional and human rights of the citizens, they have all bent over and surrendered to the agenda of Conte.

He concludes by saying that it is not the Virus which has put Italy on her knees, but the disorder in the government of the country.

Gilet Arancioni: VotiamoItalia.IT per mandare il Governo a casa

Nel video di Dario orgoglio Italiano, si spiega le notizie di VotiamoItalia.IT

di Frà Alexis Bugnolo

I Gilet Arancioni, il movimento politico popolare per il restauro dell’Ordine costituzionale d’Italia ha annunciato che stava muovendo per creare una modalità per tutti i cittadini italiani di votare per mandare il Governo di Giuseppe Conte, Dittatore Sanitario, al casa.

Adesso l’hanno fatto. Si chiama VotiamoItalia.IT.

La novità è che tutti possano votare adesso, fino al 31 Maggio, come è spiegato al sito proprio:


Le votazioni sono aperte dal 18 maggio al 31 maggio

Quindi, mi sembra che il Gilet Arancioni hanno ovviato le minacce del Governo contro azioni politiche. Adesso non è proprio necessario per nessuno scendere in piazza il 30 Maggio e rischiare arresto per violazione del Decreto-Legge dittatoriale del Governo che vieta gli assembramenti politici di fatto.
