If you have any doubt who is behind Bergoglio’s claim to power and who is against the restoration of Pope Benedict XVI to power, you need only go to Youtube.com.
There, do a search for “Pope Benedict is still the true pope”. YouTube will help you by even suggesting such a search. But there is a catch. Look at the results, which FromRome.Info found this morning, Rome time, at 11:00 A.M.:
As you can see, none of the results has anything to do with information about how or why Pope Benedict XVI is still the pope. Rather, all have to do with pushing the narrative that Benedict truly resigned and Bergoglio is truly the pope.
We counted no less than 45 search results which presented this fake news and manipulated results. NOT ONE RESULT was a video which even addressed the controversy over the invalidity of the renunciation or doubts about it.

Father Lombardi, who was the spokesman for Pope Benedict XVI in February of 2013, is shaking in his boots. You can see this in the fact that, after 7 years he is still trying to control the narrative about what happened in that fateful month.
He did so in an interview with La Stampa, a leading daily newspaper, yesterday on the 93rd Birthday of His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI.
Here is a brief list of the lies, Father Lombardi repeatedly uttered during the interview:
He calls the renunciation, a renunciation of the papacy, when the whole world knows that it was a renunciation of the ministry committed to Pope Benedict XVI by the Cardinals!
He claims that on Feb. 11, 2013, Pope Benedict said he did not have the strength to make decisions, when Pope Benedict said nothing of the kind!
He contradicts himself, saying on the one hand that Pope Benedict XVI does not have the strength to make decisions, and on the other, that he has a brilliant mind which has not weakened with age!
And you can see what Pope Benedict XVI thinks of La Stampa by refusing an interview on the occasion of his birthday. — Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that the newspaper has Batman, the gay icon, flying all over their pages? — When a newspaper has to dig up someone from 7 years ago to pretend to say something informed today about what is going on in the Vatican, you know that they have found a lot of doors shut in their face. And that is significant, but not surprising, on account of the questions that remain and are being asked.
But here is the really juicy part of the interview (my English translation), in the sense of the narrative that Lombardi is urgent to propose for credence, but which has lost all credibility:
From what was born this clamorous renunciation of the papacy?
From a responsible liberty which knows how to look at one’s own duties and to one’s own responsibility before God and the Church. That of the renunciation was an act characteristic of his own conscience. He always showed himself to be fully aware of a vocation received from God and exercised in the call to serve others. It was a gesture totally alien to constrictions.
There is talk of external conditioning…
I have always held as unfounded and unjustified the attempts to interpret the renunciation of Benedict XVI as the consequence of pressures, discomfort or disappointment. Significantly, the renunciation of the Pope to be valid must have one characteristic: it must be free. And the decision of Joseph Ratzinger is attributed exclusively to his capacity to see with great clarity and a profound sense of responsibility the growing disproportion between his own strength and the duties implied by the task of the Pontiff. A choice for liberty and responsibility of which he has never repented
As they say in Italian, you can only be sure something is true, when it is denied in public, especially when it is denied repeatedly for 7 years in public.
If rather what Lombardi said were true, why would he feel the need to constantly repeat himself? Especially, why are you so insistent to repeat the word “responsible” or “responsibility” so many times?
It sounds as if, psychologically, Lombardi is shouting: IT’S NOT MY FAULT! I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!
As I have demonstrated in my recent documentary, where I speak expressly about Father Lombardi’s key role in deceiving the world on Feb. 11, 2013 (see Episode 5).
And you can see what La Stampa and Father Lombardi are really worried about in the title of the article: I 93 anni di Benedetto XVI. Padre Lombardi: “Troppo debole fisicamente per fare il Papa”. Which in English means: The 93 years of Benedict XVI. Father Lombardi: “Too weak physically to act as the Pope”.
Notice they still call him by his Papal name? So they recognize that he still holds the papal dignity, which is impossible if he renounced the petrine munus, as Lombardi is attempting to say. Also, the phrase attributed to Father Lombardi (“Too weak physically to act as the Pope”) is not in the past tense, it is in an infinitive construction, applicable to past and present. But why attempt to deny he is took weak to be “the Pope” today, unless you fear his return as the one true Pope?
That says it all. This interview is an excellent piece of misinformation, disinformation and narrative control. It’s sole purpose is to deceive.
But it also reveals great fear on the part of La Stampa, Lombardi and the Vatican authorities which permitted it. A fear directed entirely against the truth of what really happened and the growing awareness of that truth by the faithful.
And some news agencies are aware of that, like the Premium Times and the Daily Post of Nigeria, which have Gänswein say in English, that Pope Benedict is under “house arrest”, as if to tease their readership.

I am continually amazed by the consistency of those who adore Bergoglio as their new Christ, new Prophet and better-than-Benedict pope. When Benedict says ministerium they read munus. And if you ask them why, they say YOU are crazy, because the real reason why is that they cannot justify their Coup d’etat at the Vatican and in the entire Church, without fixating on that and never giving a reason.
It is kind of like Mr. Steve Skojec, when he sees Veri Catholici he reads “Bugnolo.” But ask him why and get ready to receive a lot of verbal abuse, because he has to say that to some how demonize the only organization which is NOT compromising or playing games with Bergoglio, as he is doing.
It’s not papolatry, not in the least
Papolatry is the word used to describe such an exaggerated devotion or reverence or obedience to the Roman Pontiff that one would be more willing to betray God and His teaching or His moral laws, rather than disobey, find fault with, or disagree withe Roman Pontiff.
A lot of “critics of Pope Francis” are using this term, because it is an excellent narrative control tool. Because when you fault someone for papolatry, what you are really doing is affirming that Bergoglio is the pope and should be obeyed.
But as regards an antipope or usurper, there is no possibility of papolatry. Papolatry would only apply to Pope Benedict XVI, since he alone is the true Pope.
So any loyalty or obedience to Bergoglio is not papolatry, not in the least. It is demonic false obedience to an illegitimate person who is pretending to be your superior but who has no legal claim whatsoever to the office he is pretending to hold.
Thus, papolatry is an excellent narrative control term. It’s use prevents the person who is at risk of breaking free from the False Narrative from logically arriving and the correct Question: But maybe Bergoglio is not the pope?
The correct term to be used is anti-palolatry, that is the idolatrous exaltation of anything which opposes the true Pope. And there are a lot of such idolatries, so it is useful to list them:
Saying that Pope Benedict resigned the Papacy, because you hold that a tweet by Giovanni Chirri is more authoritative in what it claims Pope Benedict XVI said than what even Pope Benedict did say!
Reading munus where ministerium is written in Pope Benedict’s Declaratio of Feb. 11, 2013, because what is most important to you is your job, your career, your wicked friends who prefer lies to truth, and having the right to live life the way you want without regard to truth, reality and law, despite the final consequence that you will be damned for all eternity into the Pit of Fire where all liars and rebels to God will end up!
Saying that a Pope can call a conclave to elect his successor. This is a contradiction in terms, because both Canon 359 and the Papal Law on Papal Elections require that the Pope be dead or have legally renounced before the Dean of the College convoke a conclave.
Saying that the fact that the Cardinals chose someone and call him the Pope makes him the Pope, and that there is is a presumption that what they did was legal, prior to any consideration of facts AND even despite any facts.
Saying that Pope Francis is pope, regardless of whether his election was invalid or illegal, because nearly everyone was fooled into believing he is the pope. This is criminal psychopathy raised to the highest level. A thing is just because you can get away with it. — Stop giving money to anyone who even speaks this way! This is the mentality of a consigliere for the Italian Mafia!
Regarding any consideration of the above to be in vain or futile or illegitimate unless it be done by someone who participated actively in the crime. This is the equivalent to saying that no one can judge a criminal except a court composed of criminals. More psychopathy.
The laity can do nothing about this, they must simply wait and pray and above all shut up. This is the consummate form of idolatrous clericalism, as if they alone are saviors of the Church!
I am sure you have seen other forms of anti-papal idolatry, and so I invite you to list them below. But I hope you understand now, especially today, why so many of those who claim to be recognizing but resisting, are finding it so difficult to see any problem with the openness to idolatry in the anti-papal Exhortation to apostasy published on Wednesday.
Idolaters will never condemn idolaters. That is the Fourth Commandment of their religion: Honor your Bergoglio and your Pachamama and you will have a long career in the Church of Darkness and get abundant funding for your controlled narrative op.

One is a true story, the other a vignette. You decide.
His true name I do not know, but he called himself Andrea. I met him in front of the Bambino Gesu Hospital this morning. I had seen him before and he begged me for some groceries. So this time I felt obligated in justice and charity to help him.
He waited patiently while I conducted some other affair in the area and then followed me to a discount supermarket. Where I let him select what he wanted: some ingredients for a soup for his family, which he said lived under a bridge along the Tiber River. After the purchase I shook his hand and promised to pray for his wife and two children, so he told me he had.
Having another affair to conduct, I found myself on another street about 15 minutes later, and there was Andrea with his shopping bag empty. He did not even have time to go to the river and return. He was coming out of a shop where he had traded his groceries for money, because he wanted to buy liquor.
It was at that moment, Andrea gave me a lesson worth more than the groceries. He said to me, “You get around a lot, don’t you. You are on every street!” He was shamefaced that I caught him in his deception. But he spoke in the hope that by listening to his words I might not notice what he was doing.
In the year 2041, when the Antichrist has taken up his throne in the Vatican, the only resistance left in his Church of Abu Dhabi — that is what it is now called — is a group which is called The Ostriches. This year they are meeting in a remote sandy place in Patagonia to perform yet another of what they call the most effective acts of resistance and defiance against the Supreme Pontiff of Surprises.
Their protest consists in arranging themselves in a circle, digging a hole in the sand big enough for the head of each of them, and then placing their head in the hole, while leaving their posterior stick out in the air. And they do this for 15 minutes, while contemplating the silence of ”resisting while recognizing.”
After a press conference, in which they denounce the Supreme Pontiff of Abu Dhabi for heresy and left-wing politics, one of the last German Noblemen invited to the secret, private protest, asks all of the leading ‘Recognize but Resistance’ Movement leaders, how they can say at the same time that the Supreme Pontiff is a heretic, while affirming that he has the grace of Pachamama to be infallible? Moreover, why protest here in remote Patagonia, and not in front of the Vatican?
To this none of them could respond, directly, they just continued with their press conference praising one another on the brilliant wisdom, prudence and strategy of recognizing and resisting with such outstanding public stunts as they had just accomplished for all the world to see, on Social Media — but only after the fact.
The pan-handler should teach us a lesson: when you see fraud in action, do not allow what the fraudster says, in the moment you catch him in his dishonestly, to keep you from recognizing that he is dishonest.
In this way you will remember that you are being played every time you go to their websites to read the carefully crafted controlled media stories they put out. Because their only lasting objective is to remain in communion with the High Priest of Pachamama. And the longer it takes you to recognize that, the more likely it will be that you lose your immortal soul and those of all your family.
Perhaps they do not do what they do under orders from you know who, but what difference does that make?

A troll is a mythical creature of Nordic folklore. J. R. R. Tolkien made them famous by including them in his books, The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings.
But on Social Media, the term “troll” has another meaning: a commentator whose intent is to disrupt, attack, insult, create division, distract, divert, etc… Some people just have problems interacting with others, because they have a mind which has fallen into the intellectual vices of perpetual suspicion, anger, envy, jealousy, etc. etc.
But since the time Barrack Obama ran for the U.S. Presidency, trolls have become a phenomenon of paid political warfare and of state sponsored psyop. (A psyop is a person involved in psychological warfare and informational warfare.) They attack or infiltrate in such a way as to control the narrative and dupe the unsuspecting. They may appear to be enemies, but some pretend to be friends.
Pro Obama trolls were called Obots. I think you can call a pro Bergoglian troll a Bergbot. The suffix -bot is used because these individuals are so methodical in their attacks and so frequent in their comments across many platforms of social media, that they are either paid professionals working a full time job at doing this or are using computers running on high level Artificial Intelligence systems.
In this post, then, I want to talk about Bergbots and how to recognize them.
A typical Bergbot
Here is an example of one of the most clever Bergbots around. He is fluent in Polish, but lives somewhere in the USA. I think in Minnesota. I infer from what I know of him that he is a paid employee of either the US Democrat party or of the US State Department.
He pretends to be a trad on Gloria.TV, where one long time user reported to me that he successfully infiltrated the Polish forum and attacked every point of doctrine and historical fact which showed the Aggiornamento was run by Modernists and sodomites. He used numerous names and thus was hard to recognize. He changed them often. He did this for 5 years.
After posting some articles on Gloria.TV, the From Rome blog started to receiving comments from an individual who acts in the same way.
Recently I see him on other blogs which are linked to by the From Rome blog. And so I feel that it is my responsibility to warn everyone.
An example of how a Bergbot trolls a pro Benedict blog
Here is an example of his type of trolling.
I do not think that Benedict would ever leave the Vatican because when he resigned he recommended that the Cardinals elect his successor so that he could be free of the worry of running the Church.
Let’s enumerate all the lies he has woven into that one comment.
that the Cardinals
running the Church
The comment appears to refer to the Declaration, Non solum propter, of Feb. 11, 2013, However, in that declaration,
The man who is the Pope, inasmuch as he is the man Joseph Ratzinger, and not inasmuch as he is the Pope
that those who are competent to do so
elect a new Supreme Pontiff.
because he was renouncing the ministry on account of his age
Unpacking the lies of the Bergbot
There are some important things this Bergbot has done in a single comment to contradict or alter those 5 truths.
First, he has tried to make it appear that the call for a conclave had papal backing. But the man Joseph Ratzinger has no authority to call anything. Neither does a pope have authority to call a conclave to elect another pope, since that only happens when a pope drops dead, or renounces the petrine munus.
Second, Ratzinger declared, he did not recommend. “Recommend” as a word seems innocent, but “recommend” unlike “declare” implies consent.
Third, though Ratzinger made his declaration in front of the Cardinals, he said nothing about Cardinals electing anyone. To say those who are competent to elect, could refer to the Roman Church in the absence of Cardinals or to the Cardinal Electors. But Ratzinger intentionally did not specify which. Which should be an obvious sign to everyone that he had something else in mind than what we might think.
Fourth, Ratzinger never said anything about electing his successor. He said a new supreme pontiff. “Supreme pontiff” is a term used before in reference to the Pope, but the correct canonical term for the office of the pope is Roman Pontiff. Because there can be supreme pontiffs of any organization or Church, not just the Church of Rome.
Fifth, “running the Church” implies governance. But the power of governance is attached to the office which Ratzinger never renounced, not to the ministry which he did renounce. “Running the Church” is not a concept found in the declaration of Feb. 11, 2013. But by adding it the Bergbot has implied a renunciation of office, not ministry.
It is important, then, to see how the Bergbot is attempting to alter the perception of reality by such a short comment.
He is trying to instill a false memory, by which you believe that the Pope validly resigned the Office of Pope and willed the election of Bergoglio by the Cardinals.
The reality is that Ratzinger renounced the petrine ministry, and added the phrase to convoke a conclave without specification of time, leaving the matter, as it were, in the air, and indeterminate.
The Cardinals if they were awake and faithful and knowledgeable about what Ratzinger said in his declaration, would have done nothing. Because it is not an act which is conformity with the norm of Canon 332 §2, it is simply the statement of an old man who is tired and has not yet said in canonical proper form what he wants to do about it.
I hope this helps you to see how important it is to monitor the comments of your blog and how important it is not to let comments which appear to be doing the same things, to be published on your blogs, even if they appear to be friendly. Trolls play on bloggers and social media sites which want to receive the affirmation which comes from a commentator taking enough time to leave a comment. This is how they weaponize social media platforms to control the narrative.
In the above example, if you reply to the Bergbot, you can see that he has an easy way out: he can claim that he was poorly informed and was speaking inexactly. And then he can lash out at you for being a nit-picker and for being inhospitable to commentators, etc. etc. I am sure you can imagine more self-righteous ways he can hide what he was trying to do. Then he will change is name, IP address and email and come back to your blog and try a different trick.
The only solution with a Bergbot is to block them permanently. But first take note of their email address and I.P. and when next you run into a suspicious commentator, see if there is any similarities.
Finally, if the problem were only with Bergbots as individuals, that would be enough. But when Catholic journalists, News Outlets and Websites start taking money from George Soros or State sponsored Psyop Organizations, then they too start playing with the memory of reality in the same way. And if you won’t accept their arguments they will also lash out at you, 24/7. Perhaps you used to read such websites.
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle …
The Mafia of St. Gallen rules by lies. Their entire project is built upon a lie, which they were successful in passing off to the world and defending during nearly seven years.
I speak of the false notion that Pope Benedict XVI resigned the papacy, when in truth all he did was resign from active ministry.
The Mafia of St. Gallen should really have a second name, the Mafia of Holy Gall, because if they are anything, they are bold liars. Nevertheless, they are bold because being composed of those practiced in sexual abuse of others, they know how to gaslight the faithful.
These tactics they have used on the Bishops and clergy, and through them, by getting them to spread false ideas of virtue and prudence, they have succeeded in gaining control of nearly all Catholic Media.
For those Catholics, like myself, who have been trying to get the world see their lies, the most effective weapon this Mafia has against us is not to directly attack us, but to ignore us in public. Then to get other Catholic news agencies to ignore us in public. Then to get Catholic social media sites to ignore us.
The present sites have decided to ignore totally all which is published at The From Rome Blog: Church Militant, The Remnant, Rorate Caeli, Catholic Family News, Gloria.TV (since Nov. 19), Chiesa e Post Concilio, UnaVox, LifeSite News, National Catholic Register, etc. etc. etc., and nearly all sites for the Traditional Latin Mass. — There is no need to mention sites run by the clergy, as they ALL ignore The From Rome Blog. None of these groups do this by chance, its by a predetermined deliberate decision. In many cases they have been asked by members of the clergy or Cardinals to do this. In other cases its because of who funds them or their fear of losing funding or advertisement if they buck the Great Narrative.
This is important, and not merely a personal lament. Because, you see, all the work that investigators like myself do, is pointless if no one ever knows about it.
But there is something you can do, and that means you have to recognize that it is not enough that you visit sites which expose the Mafia for what they are, YOU NEED TO SHARE THAT NEWS ON SOCIAL MEDIA with others.
I have repeatedly seen that when I specifically ask 1 friend to share 1 of my blog posts, that The From Rome Blog will receive about 750 hits in the next 36 hours on account of that 1 friend sharing one post, on, let’s say, FaceBook.
At present, there is only one of the 20,000 sometime readers of my blog who share my posts on Facebook. I won’t name the other sites which regularly feature a link to one or more of my posts, lest they be attacked by the Mafia. (THOUGH I THANK THEM PROFUSELY).
But I think you can see, that YOU my readers need to step up and do your part.
Because, we must ask ourselves: Will the Mafia of St. Gallen succeed?
And, we must respond: YES, IF YOU LET THEM.
