A premature phone call…
President-Elect? “Pope” Francis congratulates Joe Biden
Here in the United States, the Biden-Harris campaign has just released the following statement on its web site:
President-elect [sic] Joe Biden spoke this morning with His Holiness Pope [sic] Francis. The President-elect thanked His Holiness for extending blessings and congratulations and noted his appreciation for His Holiness’ leadership in promoting peace, reconciliation, and the common bonds of humanity around the world. The President-elect expressed his desire to work together on the basis of a shared belief in the dignity and equality of all humankind on issues such as caring for the marginalized and the poor, addressing the crisis of climate change, and welcoming and integrating immigrants and refugees into our communities.
It is not clear whether “Pope” Francis initiated the phone call or Mr. Biden did. What is clear is that Francis is not the lawful Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, and Biden is not — at least not at this point — the President-Elect of the United States. The reason is that the results of the U.S. presidential election have not yet been certified and are therefore inofficial at best and still subject to legal challenges. Indeed, legal challenges are currently underway in a number of states on account of credible allegations of vote fraud, and the Office of the Attorney General has now authorized the Department of Justice to investigate. Numerous sworn affidavits are being submitted by people claiming to have witnessed fraud in the counting of votes or other irregularities.
Regardless of whether the legal challenges prevail or not, and regardless of whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden ultimately emerges as the official winner of the 2020 presidential election, the fact of the matter is that as of this point (Nov. 12, 2020), the winner has not yet been officially determined. Although many TV news channels and media outlets have proclaimed Biden the winner of the race, such proclamations are not official and carry no legal weight whatsoever. It is still entirely possible that in the end, President Trump will be elected to a second term, just as it is entirely possible that Joe Biden will be elected President instead. The point is that until the election results are final and official, Biden is not President-Elect.
“Pope” Francis congratulating Biden on his supposed election victory, therefore, is entirely premature. It is not surprising, however, considering that Biden and Francis are both the same kind of “Catholic”; and Biden has happily enlisted Francis for a campaign ad, not once only but also a second time, without any objection from the papal impostor.
On a related note: Our brand new podcast episode, TRADCAST EXPRESS 121, addresses Declan Leary’s claim at Crisis Magazine that “Joe Biden cannot choose not to be Catholic, and we cannot choose to stop calling him Catholic, whatever monstrous public sins he may undertake. The determination is above his ability, and ours, to alter.” Really? To listen to our analysis, click the player below:
Francis’ rush to congratulate Biden on supposedly winning the Presidency should also be evaluated in light of the fact that Biden, whom a number of Novus Ordo clerics have said they would publicly refuse “Communion”, is an avid political supporter of late-term abortion and so-called “LGBT rights”. In 2016, Biden presided over the “marriage” ceremony of a sodomite couple. By choosing Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate, he picked a woman who voted against the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”, a bill “to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion” (source).
It may be surmised that none of these issues came up in that phone call with Francis — and never will.
