As concerns continue to mount regarding Hitlery’s rather questionable health status, and as it becomes more of a serious issue, perhaps even a show stopper as it relates to her presidential ambition, her VP pick Tim Kaine is drawing an increasing amount of scrutiny as the election draws near. And at least some of that attention now focuses on the fact that Kaine took what’s described as being a life transforming “mission” trip to Latin America in 1980. However, conveniently left out of all these stories, is the radical reality of the Cold War in Latin America as well as Kaine’s Soviet sympathizing mentors. In fact, whatever Kaine’s intentions, it would seem that he more likely met Karl Marx than Jesus Christ while he was there.
And it’s upon digging a little deeper into Kaine’s supposedly life-transforming “mission”, during which he embraced the Marxist-based, heretical strategy of liberation theology, that before long we stumble across some rather interesting revelations. For instance, it’s in relatively short order that we are able to determine that Kaine’s political formation wasn’t pro-American or pro-Catholic, what it was was pro-Soviet”. And as we set about in our effort to connect the dots buried within Kaine’s personal history it’s a rather alarming picture that soon emerges regarding his ‘adventures’ with radicals and revolutionaries in 1980s Latin America. Reports indicate that while in Honduras, “Mr. Kaine embraced an interpretation of the gospel, known as liberation theology.”
It’s my understanding the Liberation Theology itself was a product of a Kremlin disinformation campaign designed to undermine the Church and bring Catholic countries into the Soviet sphere. The top-ranking Soviet Bloc defector of the Cold War, Gen. Ion Pacepa admits he was personally involved in the operation. This wasn’t mainstream “Catholic thought” at the time. It was a radical, Marxist-based ideology at odds with the Church, the pope, and the United States, but supportive of (and supported by) the Soviet Union. To counter Vatican opposition to this theology, now published documents from the Soviet and East German archives show “active measures” were undertaken to undermine the Vatican and the pope — key barriers to a Soviet influence in Latin America.
And contrary to the myth, this was never Pope Francis’ theology of choice. According to Argentine Jesuits, he was never favorable to Marxist-tinged theology. In 2005, he directly discussed “Liberation Theology,” “Christian socialism” and other “revolutionary” ways of thinking, saying: “After the collapse of ‘real socialism,’ these currents of thought were plunged into confusion. Incapable of either radical reformulation or new creativity, they survived by inertia, even if there are still some today who, anachronistically, would like to propose [them] again.” Liberation Theology’s recent second wind has been achieved by disavowing its Marxist roots. Francis’ doctrinal chief Cardinal Mueller is seen as friendly, but stated: “true liberation theology is opposed to Marxism.”
But that most certainly was not the case back in the 1980s. And it was then that Kaine embraced not some reconstituted, post-Marxist version, but the hardcore, Cold War variety — an avowed Marxist ideology detrimental to the institutional Catholic Church and to the United States. Just how hardcore were Kaine’s Jesuit teachers? Well, around the time Kaine was there, Jesuits were being arrested for gunrunning, and, the very next year, the Honduran government banned any more American Jesuits from coming into that country because of their left-wing activism. They also expelled one American-born Jesuit, who also had to leave that religious community because he was, apparently, even too radical even for them.
That priest was Father Jim Carney, and he was the one the New York Times tells us that Kaine sought out across the border in Soviet-supported Nicaragua, taking a bus and then walking several miles just to meet him. Carney was a full-blown revolutionary. A recent New York Times report says his death was “murky” and hardened Kaine’s distrust of American involvement in the region. What isn’t so murky is what led to his death. In 1983, Carney was part of a 96-man unit that invaded Honduras to bring the Nicaraguan Communist revolution there too. The insurgents were Cuban and Nicaraguan trained and led by Jose Reyes Mata, Cuban-educated, and Honduras’ top Marxist. Reyes Mata had previously served with Che Guevara in Bolivia.
After a firefight with Honduran troops, Reyes Mata was captured and later killed. Carney was reported dead as well. Some think he was captured and killed too. Kaine worried about American complicity in an extrajudicial killing, but he didn’t seem all that bothered by Carney’s participation in a Communist-sponsored insurgency and invasion of Honduras. The Nicaraguan Sandinistas had been founded by KGB operative Carlos Fonseca. Eastern Bloc archives also show that they were supported massively by the Cubans, the Soviets and the East Germans — with guns, ammunition, money, prison building, etc. They were pretty brutal too, with more political prisoners than any other country in the region except Cuba.
Some prisoners were executed by being hacked to death, or by being flayed alive. Others had family members raped in front of them. By every measure, the atrocities the Sandinistas committed were far worse than the dictatorship they had replaced. What blocked them from total victory was the Reagan administration and the Catholic Church. Why Kaine felt the need to go Nicaragua, and meet a friend of violent revolutionaries is murky at best. But his relationship with Carney’s successor, Father Melo, continues in the open. Melo, incidentally, wants to redistribute land throughout Latin America by 2021. Did Kaine’s mentors teach him the art of Soviet disinformation — call yourself the very thing you seek to undermine and try to destroy it from within? Just sayin’.
If that is what he’s doing, does it apply just to his faith, or to his country as well? In Virginia Kaine ran as a moderate but ruled as a liberal. Today he runs as a “Pope Francis” Catholic but on abortion and marriage, Kaine opposes Francis. On the conscience rights of groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor, Kaine sided with Barry. Francis sided with the Little Sisters, whom he visited in Washington a year ago to publicly show his support. As in the 1980s, Kaine’s “Catholicism” serves neither his Church nor his country, but instead a Leftist political agenda that has proven to be on the wrong side of the Church, on the wrong side of history, and against the interests of freedom and the United States. In other words it puts him right where he feels the most at home.
So this is the man who could very well end up being just a heartbeat away from becoming president. If that doesn’t send a chill down your spine then you must be a hardcore leftist Democrat who hates the country they’re currently living in. So therefore it is his highly questionable past that needs to be very thoroughly scrutinized, and it’s upon doing that that one quickly realizes why it is that he was selected in the first place. We now have on one side of this campaign two people of whom it can be said represent to our nation a very clear and present danger, and on any number of levels. The disdain these two possess for our country should frighten every freedom loving American. They would seek nothing more than to finish that which was begun by Barry.
And yet it’s individuals like Jesse ‘The Extortionist’ Jackson and Al ‘Not So’ Sharpton who continue to advocate voting for Democrats because “they gonna to fix this stuff.” Because Democrats are going to make sure that there isn’t any racism anymore. The Democrats are going to protect you from the cops. The Democrats are going to protect you from evil corporations that won’t hire you. The Democrats are going protect you from the evil racists and the bigots. The Democrats are going to punish the evil racists and bigots. The Democrats are going make sure you have work. The Democrats this, the Democrats that. You can’t trust the Republicans. The Republicans don’t like you. The Republicans are racists, bigots, sexists, and on and on it goes.
That’s what a large percentage of blacks in America are told. So that’s what they think. That’s how they’re raised. A lot of us believe that what’s holding people back is nothing more complicated than the Democrat Party. Blacks have been voting for people who’ve been promising to fix things for over 50 years. And sadly, they are just as bad off today as they were 50 years ago, if not worse off. But they never seem to be mad at the people who are actually responsible for their continuing plight. They’re never mad at the people whose promises are never kept. Barry has had two terms to change that, and has failed miserably. So even after having had a black man in the White House for eight years, blacks are still worse off today than they were on Barry’s first day in office.
And I’m just not sure how many people realize, or care, how far to the left it is that today’s Democrat Party has moved. Because it has been made to morph into what is nothing more than a Leftist-Revolutionary Party. And most who consider themselves as proud, card-carrying members of the party are nothing but radical leftwing crazies who utterly despise America, which is why their collective platform is all about working toward the “fundamental-transformation” of it. But the fact is that most are nothing more than “useful idiots” who are likely not the least bit aware of the leftwing doctrines supported by their party, much like those involved in religious cults don’t know the deep teachings but like the perks that the cult provides to them.
At the end of the day there are now less than 60 days before those of us who still love this country will be confronted with making what will likely be one of the most important decisions we will have ever been called upon to make. We will be choosing between a devout socialist and someone who actually loves this country. The point of this election will be to vote for the candidate who we think most capable of changing the direction of America. There’s an old saying that you go to war with the army you have, not the army you wish you had. Well in 2016 we will have an election that involves the two candidates that we have, not the ones we wish we had, nor the ones that we think we should have had. So please choose wisely!
