Might Pro-Francis & Anti-Traditionalist Opus Dei have been involved in the Trump "Setup"?

Was Trump's much-condemned dinner with Catholic 'integralist' Nick Fuentes a setup?

Milo Yiannopoulos


Milo Yiannopoulos is a New York Times-bestselling author, an award-winning investigative reporter, a reformed sodomite, a global political sensation, a free speech martyr, an accomplished serial entrepreneur, a hair icon, a penitent, and, to the annoyance of his many enemies, a happy person. Nicknamed the "pop star of hate" by jealous fatties in the media, Milo is the most censored, most lied-about man in the world, banned from entire continents for his unapologetic commitment to the sound of his own voice. His first book, Dangerous, sold over 200,000 copies despite never being reviewed in any major publication. Milo lives in Florida, where he is preparing to open a reparative therapy clinic for men plagued by same-sex attraction. []

Fascinating from : - says dinner with was scheduled before "death con" tweet, postponed after midterms - says Milo reached out to him after the tweet -Milo says he brought Fuentes into the conversation - confirms Trump had no idea who Fuentes is

It is starting to look like a lot of people apparently connect to the pro-Francis Opus Dei were involved in the Donald Trump "setup."

The Les Femmes website reported that Church Mititant appears to be a collaborator with the pro-Francis and pro-Amoris Laetita Opus Dei:
So let's look at the beginning of CM as St. Michael's Media and Real Catholic TV.The saga begins in 2006 when Michael Voris formed his company, St. Michael's Media. In 2008 Real Catholic TV premiered in Ferndale, MI, a city known for its homosexual presence. 

But the domain name wasn’t registered by Voris. Rather it belonged to Marc Brammer who hired Voris to do the programming and put $250,000 into the startup of Real Catholic TV. 

So who is Marc Brammer and what kind of programming did he want Voris and company to produce?

Marc Brammer is a wealthy and successful businessman from South Bend, IN. He is also a member of Opus Dei as researcher Randy Engel confirmed from a 2011 email responding to a query to Mike Voris. Not just an ordinary member, however. Brammer wrote to Engel that he is a “supernumerary” of Opus Dei and involved in several media enterprises. What is the connection of those enterprises to OD? Another area of investigation.

In another contact with Engel, Brammer linked Opus Dei with Voris saying, “Come on Randy…be a Catholic warrior with us…with me…with [E. Michael] Jones…with Voris…we are not OD thugs.” Hmm… Brammer clearly connects Voris here with OD.  So exactly what level of involvement does Voris have with OD? Member? Cooperator? Friendly ally in their work? Something to investigate.

These questions need answers because they would go a long way to explaining why Church Militant is trying to destroy not only the SSPX, but LifeSiteNews, The Remnant, Catholic Family News, and any other media outlet favorable to the Holy Tradition of the Catholic Church.

Is Michael Voris a member of Opus Dei? A cooperator? Or just the financial beneficiary of a number of Opus Dei promoters who may be acting as Opus Dei front men? OD appears to act on the principle of plausible deniability letting some of their wealthy members act as stealth actors in their “work of God.” []

Moreover, Stream says there is a connection with Fuentes and E. Michael Jones:

As I wrote in 2019:

Online provocateur Nick Fuentes, widely condemned for race-baiting and Jew-baiting, has built quite a following among disaffected young men. … Fuentes fans publicize anti-Jewish conspiracy theorist E. Michael Jones. (Watch Jones debate Stream columnist Michael Brown on anti-Semitism here.) []

The Opus Dei expert Randy Engel also shows that there is seemingly an anti-Traditional connection:

The Anatomy of the Opus Dei /Jones/Brammer Relationship

Two of the questions which have been repeatedly asked by readers of The Man Behind the Curtain are, first, why did Jones write his book on Voris and secondly, what was the exact nature of Jones’ relationship with the key players in the affair, specifically with Marc Brammer and Father Paul Nicholson, Voris’ “tell-all” spiritual director. The following quote was taken from of October 8, 2016:

I wrote the book first of all to explain what really happened. Secondly, I wrote it to clarify the theological point that everyone was missing in the discussion. The dominant culture’s downplaying of the true magnitude of this sin combined with Catholics ignoring the Church’s teaching on penance and adopting the Protestant notion of cheap grace made his story incomprehensible.

I’d like to propose two other reasons why Jones decided to write the book and use Fidelity Press as the publishing vehicle.

First, because his friend and benefactor of more than thirty years, Opus Dei supernumerary Marc Brammer, asked him to and secondly, because E. Michael Jones’s publishing enterprise is an Opus Dei apostolate/auxiliary society.


Voris Joins Carroll in Attacking Traditionalists

In September 2015, Voris began special series on The Vortex on the SSPX in which he repeated Carroll’s charge that “every single SSPX priest and bishop is committing a mortal sin when he offers Mass.” Voris also claimed that Catholics who attend SSPX chapels risk eternal damnation.

Among the Traditionalists he attacked were John Vennari (CFN), Michael Matt (The Remnant) and Louie Verrecchio (aka Catholic).  This writer is proud to have written articles for all these honorable Catholic men over the last thirty years.

Having read the transcripts of the entire series in a single day, there are some repetitive themes in Voris’ lectures that stick in my mind. One is Voris’ repeated emphasis on the virtue of blind obedience.  “There are many paths to Hell and only one to heaven,” says Voris, “and that is “obedience, absolute and total obedience.”

As written, this statement is not true.

The highest virtues, as taught by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, are Faith, Hope and Charity, and the greatest of these is Charity. That man owes absolute obedience to Almighty God and His Commandments is not in question here. But as a general principle of righteous conduct, obedience has its limitations both in the lay and religious life. Superiors of religious orders, for example, cannot claim obedience in contravention to the dispositions of higher authority. Much less, in the limbo world of Opus Dei, can a lay numerary claim absolute obedience from a member or potential member of the Prelature who has been assigned to him for spiritual direction.

At this point in my commentary on Church Militant versus the Traditionalist Movement, I’d like to leave Carroll and Voris for a moment and switch the spotlight back to Jones and his views on schism, the SSPX and criticism of the pope and bishops. Since Jones made the decision to devote so much time and space in The Man Behind the Curtain to these issues, even though they weren’t particularly pertinent to the Voris scandal, I believe they are fair game for criticism.  

E. Michael Jones and Lyman Stebbins

At the start of Chapter Two, Jones states that shortly after he separated from The Wanderer, which must have been in or around the mid-1960s, he met with Lyman Stebbins, founder of Catholics United for the Faith (CUF), who had also split from Al Matt’s newspaper over the issue of criticizing bishops.

Jones admits that everything he knows about the Church’s position on criticizing the bishops and the pope came from Stebbins.

 H. Lyman Stebbins, (1911-1988), H stands for Hart, had a very colorful background as a young man, but a Theology Degree is not on his résumé. Neither is there any CUF reference to his membership at Yale University in the notorious senior secret society Skull and Bones (Class of 1933).  

Stebbins came from an extremely wealthy Episcopalian Wall Street family associated with the firm of DeCoppet and Doremus, and he himself had a successful career on the New York Stock Exchange. Following a long illness, he went in search of God. He first tried life as a Benedictine oblate. He founded Mount Savior Monastery in Elmira, N.Y., but eventually left. The monastery is still in existence.

His next attempt brought Stebbins and his money to another secret society –  Opus Dei.    

In 1968, the now Catholic Stebbins used part of his fortune to start Catholics United for the Faith (CUF) as “an international lay apostolate” founded to “support, defend, and advance the efforts of the Teaching Church in accords with the teachings of the Second Vatican Council, specifically, Lumen Gentium which states: “… [The Laity] are called by God …being led by the spirit of the gospel, so that they can work for the sanctification of world from within, in the manner of leaven (No. 31).”

As with almost all Opus Dei lay apostolates including Jones’ Ultramontane Associates, CUF is a public charity” that (9) “… normally receives: (1) more than 33 1/3 % of its support from contributions, membership fees, and gross receipts from activities related to its exempt functions - subject to certain exceptions, and (2) no more than 33 1/3 % of its support from gross investment income and unrelated business taxable income… “

In a 1974 address titled, “The Essential Meaning and Purpose of Catholics United for the Faith,” delivered to the Memphis Chapter of CUF,” Stebbins stated that the laity “have never had what we undoubtedly need: a formation and a form for our spiritual life.” In his call for “a spiritual Renaissance,” Stebbins said that the laity need a “Rule of Life,” (you mean like an Opus Dei “Plan of Life?”), and the development of “a regular, unified, country-wide series of retreats and days of recollection” (you mean the kind that Opus Dei sponsors at its centers?). Finally, he suggests that “young Catholic who are serious about answering the call to holiness as lay people, and that they might be given a chance to spend a year or two after high school – or after college – at a small center for Catholic lay formation… (you mean become an Opus Dei numerary and live in an Opus Dei residence?). Notice how Stebbins got the Opus Dei message across without ever mentioning the Prelature?

So, it is not surprising that Jones’ and Stebbins’ and CUF’s position on the criticism of bishops and the pope mirrors that of Opus Dei: that is, public criticism of bishops and the pope is prohibited.

The first CUF office on North Ave. and Opus Dei’s Regional Office were both located in New Rochelle, N.Y. After Stebbins’ death in 1989, CUF was moved to Steubenville, Ohio, home of the Franciscan University. Its magazine is Lay Witness and its publishing arm is Emmaus Road Publications. A number of prominent Opus Dei leaders are represented on its advisory councils including Dr. Scott Hahn, Russell Shaw, Archbishop John J. Myers and Bishop Robert W. Finn.

According to the CUF website, the organization “is operated by dedicated lay volunteers, limited paid staff and a loyal Board of Directors” with David Rodriguez, President, Mike Sullivan, a member of the Board of Directors and former President, and Shannon Minch-Hughes, Chief of Operations among others.

As reported in its 990 IRS report for 2012, Mike Sullivan, then President, received almost $100,000 in salary and other compensation and Shannon Minch-Hughes received more than $76,000 as Vice President. Contributions between 2008 and 2012 totaled over $2 million.

In 2013, Sullivan received a salary of over $69,000 and Minch-Hughes received $79,000. Contributions were listed as over $274,000.

In 2014, Minch-Hughes received over $57,000 as salary for Vice-President, but no salary for President was listed.  Contributions were over $ 250,000.

Isn’t Opus Dei Holy Poverty wonderful? []

Pray an Our Father now in reparation for the sins of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

"[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See."
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

- "If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?":

- "Could Francis be a Antipope even though the Majority of Cardinals claim he is Pope?":

 -  LifeSiteNews, "Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers," December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"

-  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."

- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.
