POPE BENEDICT CELBRATES WHILE ABUSED SURVIVORS STILL SUFFER (www.johnlifepublishing.com)

RETIRED POPE BENEDICT XV1 celebrates his birthday in the Vatican today, probably with a beer, but abused survivors will feel horrors because Benedict set free a savage beast on them.

Did Benedict retire as leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics because of faxes we sent to him from our home in Co Clare about his protection of paedophile priest Fr Brendan Smyth?

Pope Benedict helped the serial child abuser Fr Smyth to dodge justice when the police were hunting for him.

If the Irish authorities believe in law, and the protection of children, then they must seek the extradition of Pope Benedict who is living under the protection of the Vatican.

Sources stated that Pope Benedict, who turned 90 yesterday – Easter Sunday (April 16th) – retired to save the Catholic Church’s wealth because he was about to be sued by sexual abuse survivors for covering up Fr Smyth’s crimes.

As head of the religion he would have been responsible and forced to pay compensation, however, by resigning he was no longer in control of the Church’s riches, and so not liable for a big payout.

Also by hiding away inside the Vatican, a sovereign city-state, no legal papers could be served on Benedict … if they could even get to him.

Of course compassion must be shown to a 90-year-old. We are not calling for cruelty on Pope Benedict. Authorities must treat him with dignity.

However, one night in prison might be a spiritual blessing to Pope Benedict as the shock of a closing cell door behind him would open up his soul, allowing him a fresh approach to his Maker, giving Benedict an opportunity to face the truth, and to realize that by his safeguarding of the sex savage Fr Brendan Smith hundreds of children’s lives were ruined.

Pope Benedict was informed in the 1990s, by our faxes, about the nefarious activities of the monster Fr Smyth, who died aged-70 in prison in Ireland in 1997.

He had admitted to having abused more than 200 children. But the real numbers could be in the thousands.

He molested children in Rhode Island, North Dakota and Boston where the Catholic Church sent him, to hide him. Fr Smyth raped and sexually abused children in America, Italy, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and Wales for some five decades … and the Roman Church protected him, hide him from distraught parents and the police.

Pope Benedict was one of his protectors because he was informed by us in faxes we sent to him about Fr Smyth’s rampaging and raping of children in Ireland, but Benedict did not inform the authorities about the crimes Fr Smyth had committed.

Instead Benedict, after the fact, hid these horrendous crimes from the civil authorities.

And the present Pope Francis has been informed about this by us in a registered letter we sent from the USA last July, but Pope Francis has also not replied to us.

We dearly love Pope Francis. He is a ray of hope in a dark ocean. We love his work for humankind, but one wonders will he be part of the 90th birthday party being planned for Benedict.

Will Pope Francis or former Pope Benedict live up to the message of the risen Christ on Easter Sunday, Benedict’s birthday?

The Vatican says Benedict’s birthday will be celebrated on Monday in Bavarian style, in keeping with the emeritus pontiff’s roots.

Benedict stunned the Catholic Church by resigning as pope in 2013. He cited fading strength when announcing his decision to become the first pontiff to resign in hundreds of years… but was that the real reason for the first pontiff to resign in 600 years?

Benedict, the former Joseph Ratzinger was born in 1927 in southern Germany. He trained as a theologian, and was a long-time Vatican official in charge of ensuring doctrinal orthodoxy when elected pontiff in 2005.

Past recent birthdays have seen Benedict celebrate the day with a pint of beer… If he can drink beer, surely he can answer police question or even stand trial for having allowed Fr Smyth to continue raping children.

Some of those children would not have been sexually abused, would not have been raped, and would not have had their lives ruined, if Pope Benedict had acted like a adult, and had stopped Fr Smyth by simply reporting him to the police.

Today Benedict’s health does not seem to be a problem. His personal secretary and long-time aide, Monsignor Georg Ganswein, told the S.I.R. news agency that Benedict is “serene, in good humour, very lucid.

“Certainly, his physical strength is lessening. It’s hard for him to walk. However, he uses a walker, which ensures autonomy in movement and safety,” added Monsignor Ganswein.

Confounding rumours that his health was failing, Benedict enjoys retirement in a monastery on Vatican City grounds while the sexually abused victims suffer agonizing lives, and some are dead from suicide as they were unable to live with the unbearable pains inflicted on them by the paedophile cleric.

Monsignor Ganswein said Benedict spends his time in “prayer, meditation, reading, study, correspondence. He has visitors, too. Music certainly still has its place, together with a daily walk.”

In 2013, Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schonborn told the Catholic Italian TV station TV2000 that Benedict “reached the decision (to retire) through prayer. Perhaps he sought the advice of someone, but he certainly didn’t resign due to outside pressures.”

But was that the truth or just another cloud to keep the truth from catching up with Pope Benedict, and tumbling out into the public domain.

We wrote to Pope Francis last year asking him to question Pope Benedict.

But Pope Francis has still not replied to our registered letter that was sent to the Vatican from us in the USA.

Pope Benedict XVI had rigid views about birth control, homosexuality and he said in 2006 that the only things Muhammad did were evil and destructive.

We (husband and wife news team Ann Gitte Oerbaek and Declan White) claim that in the 1990s we faxed from our rural home in Mountshannon, County Clare to Benedict, who was then Cardinal Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger, asking why the Catholic Church had protected Ireland’s most infamous child molester?

But we received no reply from Cardinal Ratzinger, who was a former member of the Hitler Youth. He was captured by American soldiers in WW11 and held as a prisoner of war.

He was appointed in 1981 prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – previously known and feared as the Inquisition.

Cardinal Ratzinger had control of these errant priests. He knew what was going on with these depraved clerics. His official job was to defend Catholic doctrine.

But we claim that he and the Catholic Church sacrificed hundreds of children in order to save the reputation of the Roman Church, and its wealth.

Before he became Pope, in 1993 Cardinal Ratzinger told Time magazine that when he was in the regular German military, and stationed near Hungary, he saw Hungarian Jews being sent to death camps.

He also offered a Trumpian excuse that he never fought against American troops and Allied forces because a finger infection had kept him from learning to shoot.

Maybe that same finger stopped him from replying to us about the pedophile priest Fr Smyth.

But we believe that Benedict set sinister powers against us, that’s why we wrote to Pope Francis asking him and the Catholic Church to leave us alone, and to stop persecuting us because we simply did our jobs.

We seek peace in our golden years from the revenge-hounding of us by the Catholic Church.

Ann Gitte, 60, and Declan White, 65, believe a deep-rooted malicious element in Irish Catholic society set their sights on getting us out of journalism, all because of the pervert priests stories we had been uncovering.

Declan was employed as a freelance reporter with Ulster television’s ground-breaking documentary that first exposed Fr Smyth.

His Catholic Church bosses had moved Fr Smyth from parish to parish to avoid Northern Ireland police arresting him.

But every parish Fr Smyth went to he raped and abused more Catholic kiddies.

Ulster television, based in Belfast, could not find a reporter in the Republic of Ireland to doorstep Fr Smyth’s boss.

Irish media were a supined waste of space who kow-towed to every whim of the Catholic bishops.

No journalist would ask the bishop, and the Vatican, why they had allowed Fr Smith to move around the Republic when the police in Northern Ireland were looking for him?

When Ireland’s greatest reporter, Chris Moore, asked father-of-three Declan White to help, Declan immediately took the assignment.

“The bishop slammed the door in my face,” explained Declan. “It looked good on TV, and it showed the truer face of the Irish Catholic Church.

“Investigative reporter Chris Moore had revealed in the award-winning UTV Counterpoint documentary that there was a great filth floundering in the Catholic Church, and in Irish society, and in the Irish body politic.

“I later discovered that these sinister power-players were Opus Dei and the Knights, who were covertly controlling the Republic of Ireland.”

Fr Smyth had fled Northern Ireland in 1991, after his arrest by the RUC. He scurried down to the Republic with the help of the Catholic Church.

Fr Smyth spent the next three years on the run in the Republic, hiding out in Catholic abbeys, monasteries, schools and properties, until reporter Chris Moore tracked him down.

A reporter had to do the job that the Irish gardai would not do.

Why would the Irish police not do their job?

Was it because the Irish gardai were also infiltrated by Opus Dei that the Irish police were under the seditious thumb of Opus Dei?

Was this treason or were the gardai just too corrupt, too dishonest and too lazy to work?

Extradition requests from the RUC in Northern Ireland to bring Fr Smyth back to face justice fell on deaf ears in Dublin.

The extradition was bungled by delays, and blighted by poor handling in the Irish Attorney General’s office, which informed sources believe was also infiltrated by Opus Dei operatives.

The sedition was pervasive.

But even these die-hard subversives could not hold back the tide of public anger that rose up when UTV broadcast its investigation in 1994.

The truth socked the Irish. The Republic of Ireland’s government in Dublin fell.

The Fianna Fail – Labour coalition collapsed from the Fr Smyth scandal, mainly because politicians could not control the secret subversive / terrorist Catholic agents who were working inside ‘official’ Ireland, who were clandestinely controlling the Republic, and who had helped to hide the beast Fr Smyth from justice.

Before this publicity, in those early-lonely days, it was dangerous to be a reporter working on these pedophile priest stories.

They were scary days. There was no big Dublin TV stars or print media journalists risking their safety to uncover the truth about the most evil acts being perpetrated against Irish children by so many foul priests.

In those days (hard to believe it now) people cowered down before these men in black; the Irish were frightened of the Catholic Church.

However, Declan cared more for the children than for a dishonest clergy run by smelly men out of touch with reality.

Ann Gitte also deeply cared for the abused children and she joined Declan as they went out of their way, and faced down dangers, to bring those children’s stories to the Irish people.

The husband-and-wife couple, who are 41 years together, worked all hours, and sometimes in nerve-racking scenes, so that the abused children could gain a voice.

In those days Catholic families were run out of their homes if they reported that their altar boy son was molested by a cleric.

So some stories took a long time to go through trust, tears and type to get onto the pages of history.

Sometimes the news-couple had late night meetings, down laneways, so no one would see – staying away from Irish squinting widows – and doubling-back to make sure they weren’t being followed.

The couple worked mainly for the UK media.

Chris Moore, award-winning investigative journalist Gordon Thomas, Ann Gitte and Declan were the first journalists to believe these victims, and to tell their harrowing stories.

“The moment they spoke you believed them,” said Declan. “When the victims told me their stories, many times, I had to put my notebook down with my crying.

“Sometimes I just could not stop crying.

“I couldn’t see the words with my tears.

“How could… how could such cruelty be done on wee children? It was just unbelievable. Horrible.

“I loved my three children. And had great fun with them growing up. The best times in my life. A happy innocent child is Heaven on earth.

“But these poor victims were living a hell on earth. They had grown up to become crippled adults. With hearts of gold. Reaching back into unbelievable depths of dark pain.

“These were the strongest, and some of the most delicate, survivors on earth.

“We were introduced to one softly spoken man, so gentle, yet one so blanketed in his own isolation.

“A short time later he committed suicide.

“His sister told us that his suicide wasn’t from the pain allowed up from his inner depths that had overwhelmed him, but what depressed him most, and pushed him beyond any further belief in humans, was that while we believed him, others didn’t.

“Many people at that time just could not believe that the Catholic Church had been so manged, so diseased, so infiltrated by these hellish demons in priests’ clothing.

“More and more of the survivors got in touch with us. We arranged interviews.”

The couple travelled from their charming Co Clare home, nestling in a rustic picture-postcard paradise along the banks of the River Shannon, with views across an island-dotted lake to mountains, forests and rolling farmlands.

An ideal spot to bring up their three children.

The news-couple drove all over Ireland. North and South. And to the UK. Meeting survivors. Allowing them to tell their horror-stories. Crying along with them.

Not all priests were rotten. Many good clerics worked selflessly for the good of humankind, and most of the laity inside the Catholic Church were more saintly than sinly, but these good souls did not know they were being manipulated by monsters falsely posing as pious priests.

Parents of victims would get in touch with Ann Gitte and Declan, because so very few people or journalists in Ireland would listen to them; nobody would believe the victims; they were crying in the wilderness.

Many abuse-victims trusted Ann Gitte and Declan because they were a female and male news-team. Survivors were more relaxed and open when they met Ann Gitte, known as the most honest woman in Ireland.

She has a compassion that is instantly trustable. The victims felt safe in her company. Finally some motherly/goddess/woman entity believed them.

The couple’s main customers for these stories were UK TV stations and an English Sunday tabloid.

The newspaper’s circulation shot up. Truth at last was coming out. And the new Irish, the newly educated, had an appetite for truth.

The Irish newspapers and RTE, the national TV and radio broadcaster, would not go near these stories – not until the UK media scooped them so much and so regularly that they shamed RTE and the Irish media into finally going out and doing their job.

“The Irish media acted like gardai… both refusing to do their jobs.”

Then the first threat arrived.

“One day I got a chilling phone call,” explains Declan. “The man, a Dublin editor, with pull and power, phoned me at my home in Co Clare.

“He said that not just the Hierarchy, but each individual Irish bishop, will sue me, some 28 or 30 High Court writs would be launched at me, and they would take my Co Clare home off me, if I do not instantly stop reporting these pervert priest stories.

“I told him to tell the Hierarchy to F*** Off.

“My wife backed my outburst. Ours is a mixed-marriage, Catholic with Protestant, built on love, not religious dogma.”

Ann Gitte asked: “Did the Catholic Church want three more children, our three children, thrown out on the side of the road?”

She got her camera. And prepared for the next story.

The Irish bishops found themselves up against a real Viking again.

But this time the Viking woman is guided by honesty in everything she does, while the bishops scudded away from rightfulness into the dark corners of secrecy and cowardice, and these craven men hide behind walls of expensive lawyers.

While the bishops hide away and plotted, the couple continued working openly to help the victims, to help Ireland, and to help Irish Catholics and the Catholic Church.

Ann Gitte said: “I could not let these survivors down. Ireland, the Catholic Church, the police, the authorities had abandoned these abused children.

“I am Danish. I have lived a beautiful childhood. My hard-working parents were truly wonderful. They gave us five children in our family happiness, and each one of us a chance at personal achievement.

“I never came across such brutality in Denmark. I was so shocked that in Ireland such appalling acts were being carried out on little children, by priests, and the Catholic Church was doing nothing to save the little ones.”

Then the couple uncovered a scandal by Cardinal Seán Brady, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Armagh, and the leader of the Roman Church in all Ireland.

Declan says that one Irish journalist spat on him, and another news executive said they’d spike all copy from Declan, because they couldn’t believe that the story about Cardinal Brady was true.

“We had uncovered something that truly shocked us,” said Declan. “There is a secret organization within the Catholic Church that not only runs the Irish Church but also runs the Republic.

“Cardinal Seán Brady was prominent in that shadowy organization. That subversive mafia ran in those days many parts of the governing of Ireland: schools, hospitals, civil service, police, prisons, Department of Justice…

“Cardinal Brady answered to this shadowy-rulership. When he was 35, when he was a highly educated and mature man, he was part of a sinister hit-team. They were sent to cover-up the monstrous sexual abuse of children by Fr Brendan Smyth.

“This squad was so reminiscent of the infamous medieval Inquisition, which carried out mass-murders and burned women at the stake, to combat heresy.

“At least one of the little altar boys told Cardinal Brady that Fr Smyth had abused him.

“But Cardinal Brady never told the cops. He never acted after the fact. Instead, Brady entered criminalcraft. He knew what he was doing was criminal. He was too highly educated not to know. He did not protect the kiddies. Of course, no law officer in Ireland has had the courage to prosecute Brady.

“Back in 1975, Cardinal Brady gagged the little boys in Northern Ireland.

“He frightened the life out of them with scare stories of hell. He swore them to secrecy. He stopped the children telling the police about pervert Fr Smith abusing them.

“It was all about saving the name of the Church; otherwise, if the truth were allowed out they, Cardinal Brady and his mafia, feared it would ruin the reputation of the Catholic Church, and its power would dissolve.

“Cardinal Brady and these shadowy evil men never gave a care for the children.

“Not a thought about the little one’s safety or welfare.

“No, instead they let that brute Fr Smyth loose on the South, and he went on to rape more children in the Republic of Ireland.

“Fr Smyth rampaged and raped for four to five decades. He raped children in America, Europe, the UK and Ireland.

“We were appalled. We tried to stop it. From our home in Co Clare we faxed the Vatican. We sent faxes after faxes all addressed to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who later became Pope Benedict.

“Cardinal Ratzinger was the enforcer for the Catholic Church at that time. He was in charge of all this.

“We told him of what Fr Smyth was doing to Irish children.

“We asked Cardinal Ratzinger what had he done to stop this abuse of Irish children.

“We phoned the Vatican. But Cardinal Ratzinger would not talk to us. We called again. He wasn’t there. We made many calls. Never got him.

“We told his assistant that we had repeatedly sent the faxes from our home in Co Clare, Ireland. He confirmed they had received our faxes.

“So the former Pope Benedict was told of Fr Brendan Smyth raping Irish children. So what did the Pope-to-be do?

“He did not protect the children, but did he send ‘soldiers’ from Opus Dei after us?

“Maybe people might wonder is this just another conspiracy theory? Surely the Catholic Church does not have hitmen?

“However, the threat delivered by this Dublin editor was serious intimidation from someone who saw himself as a player on the Irish socio-political stage, acting out his role as one of the agenda-setting rulers of the Republic.

“In my opinion, the editor was a creepy creature, who hadn’t the intellect of an otter. Maybe that’s why he was promoted to power.

“However, we subsequently met Karl Brophy – a connected high-flier Dublin PR/lobbyist, former political correspondent, former senior management in Ireland’s biggest newspaper group, and now a well-known consultant.

“He told us that the editor, the man threatening to take our home off us on behalf of the Irish Hierarchy, is a member of Opus Dei.

“This editor is well connected. He once was a close adviser to an Irish Taoiseach (prime minister). He is a very high-up powerful fellow. Dangerous. Litigious. And a force in Opus Dei.

“I believe retired Pope Benedict must answer to this. He dodged it in the 1990s when we sent him the faxes explaining the crimes Fr Smyth was doing to Irish children, and asking what he (Pope Benedict-to-be) was doing to stop this.

“He is still alive. He should answer how he and his Church hid Fr Smith, and allowed that fiend to abuse Irish, American, British and European children.

“Right now, I wish that the people in Ireland to know the truth of what happened to us in Co Clare.

“I have been criminalized, by secret Catholic forces inside Irish authority, so as to take me out of journalism.

“In 2011, I pleaded guilty to two charges – the lightest in the Irish criminal code. I did it to get out from under a pile of corruption.

“The day after Killaloe District Court in 2011 fined me €500 and bound me to he peace for one year, I took the plane out of Ireland. To a Protestant country. Feeling I was a religious refugee. I have been travelling ever since.

“I had been given a warning a few days before the Killaloe court hearing that something behind the Irish judicial system was working to imprison me. I was forewarned that I would not come out of an Irish prison alive.

“Also, another warning had come my way. A mother of a clerical abuse victim told me that a friend who had tried to help them had died mysteriously. She believed he was murdered by ‘rogue’ elements inside the Irish Catholic Church. She said: ‘Declan, they are also trying to kill you.’

“Remember, in those dark days Ireland was still suffering from a 30-year war where Protestant and Catholic bodies were washing up across a troubled landscape.

“In 2011 I was prosecuted for repossessing my home from ‘wealthy’ squatters who refused to pay their rent, yet they were spending €600,000 on themselves.

“We had moved to Dublin to work for an Irish Sunday newspaper and we had rented our Co Clare home to Stewart Barrett and Annie Collins. But they stopped paying rent, and blankly refused to pay rent or arrears.

“Collins and Barrett squatted our house in Co Clare. He had an unlicensed gun. He refused to pay rent. Collins had some €80,000 cash in the local bank but refused to pay her rent. Instead they wrecked the charming property, the same house that the Irish bishops had threatened to take off us. Barrett and Collins caused €20,000 damages and loss.

“Barrett and Collins contrived with official Ireland to allow perjury float in Killaloe District Court in 2011 against me.

“While I contend that Barrett committed perjury, his lies made headlines in Ireland, reverberated across the world, and my career in Irish journalism was finished.

“Foreign clients left me. Sources dried up. Irish and UK media would not return my calls. My US customers acted as if they had never heard of me. My 45-year career in journalism was over. Fell off a cliff.

“Well, I was falling out of love with Irish journalism when my last editor sacked me because I refused to write lies about a colorful Dublin businessman.

“I didn’t want to wake up in the morning to face my children knowing I was going into a newsroom to purposefully follow orders to write lies about people.

“I had to tell Ann Gitte and our lovely children: I got fired, sorry we are poor, again. We fell from earning €1,750 a week to €170 a week on social welfare.

“We suffered in silence.

“We went broke. Stoney broke. Fell into an abyss of debt, and accompanying ill health. We had to sell our home in Dublin, which had been in our family for four generations. And we fought the bank to hold onto our house in Co Clare, which fell into mortgage distress.

“Barrett’s perjury rubbed salt into the wound. His lies meant I could not get work in Ireland so we had to emigrate to the Arabian Peninsula, to a Moslem country, trying to find a living wage, trying to find someway to feed ourselves.

“Meanwhile, Collins organized a boycott of us in Co Clare. Collins told an old-friend of ours that: ‘He would not be invited to any more of her parties, and would be off her party guest list if he talked to us.’

“This showed Collins’ malevolent intent to cover herself, and this was also acting against me after the fact. Collins knew I did not try to strangle her yet she stayed silent in Killaloe District Court when Barrett told his lies.

“By not subsequently going to the authorities to inform them of Barrett’s lies, Collins was not just staying silent but without reluctance was erring on the criminal side by not altering the gardai to Barrett’s perjury.

“Collins had years to do the correct and legal thing, to set the record straight, but instead she flung more mud, disturbing not just our lives but other lives.

“Collins’ willful blindness to Barrett’s perjury did not exonerate her from her crime of not reporting his lies to the authorities. Her crime was even dirtier in that she not only went along with the perjury but Collins went further by excoriating Ann Gitte’s and Declan’s good name as she organized a boycott of the news-couple in their local village.

“Also we believe that Collins willingly, or naively without thinking, was drawn into the conspiracy to keep us out of journalism and out of Ireland.

“Barrett, in his late 70s, is a serial property abuser who has vandalized other people’s Irish properties for some six decades. Collins, 51, was his partner when Barrett convinced his 90-year-old mother to cut his sister out of her will, and to name him as the sole benefactor. He then moved in with his mother. She died some months later. Barrett got his widowed mother’s house.

“He sold it. And squandered €520,000 over the following four years, mainly on gambling, drinking and high living, but that was when he refused to pay rent to us.

“Collins also refused to pay her rent saying she had no money. However, she was holidaying in America, had stayed in a suite in Dublin’s Shellbourne Hotel, wore designer clothes, sent her child to an expensive private school, and she had cash in the nearby Bank of Ireland branch in Scarriff, Co Clare: €83,324.12.

“Her solicitor stated that was “the exact amount, to the cent” when Collins and Barrett took a case against Declan to the Irish property Board (PRTB).

(By this time Barrett and Collins were estranged. Collins had run away with the next-door husband of a wealthy merchant banker who had moved to Co Clare from London after the wife had made a huge sum by taking a questionable sexual discrimination case against a major UK bank).

“Barrett had told the District Court that I had tried to strangle Collins, that I had pushed her up against the wall, and that I had kicked their son out the door.

“Lies. Total Lies. I did not attack Collins. Strangle her? Surely, I would have been up on an attempted murder charge or grievous bodily harm charges.

“Kick a child? Surely that merits the prosecution of the most serious charges that the Irish criminal code has in its armory.

“The Irish police did not prosecute me on any child charge. They knew it would not stick. The cops in Co Clare conspired to sling the lowest criminal infringements at me, trying to get something to stick on me, enforcing the conspiracy to keep us out of journalism.

“Barrett had imbecilic Irish gardai on his side. The first garda Barrett had called to our property, on the day we repossessed our house in 2009, well he had flunked his sergeant’s test 17 times.

“When I refused to allow this shabbily-dressed dimwitted garda into our house I mistakenly addressed him as ‘sergeant’ to which he replied: “I’m not sergeant. I failed the sergeant examination 17 times.”

“He and the local sergeant conveniently forgot about not answering Barrett’s letters to them six years before about the illegal firearm and ammunition Barrett had in the Co Clare house.

“Barrett had used the weapon to kill a dog; shooting it several times because he was so drunk he couldn’t take aim. The weapon had a silencer. And a scope.

“Barrett had ammunition stashed in the bathroom, bedroom, pantry and kitchen presses, which we found during a frightening night after he and Collins left.

“We had to call the gardai four times to come to our house and collect the illicit ammunition. But the gardai did not prosecute Barrett for this.

“We had found the rifle, lying under a desk where any child could find it. We called the the gardai. Again we would not let the idiotic garda in, but another officer entered. We showed him where the gun was. His face showed shock. He took it away.

“But the Co Clare police subsequently said, only after we had repeatedly phoned them asking what was happening about the illegal weaponry, that Barrett had handed it in to them.

“Lies. Official lies. But it was not the first time Irish gardai have lied. Unfortunately, the Irish gardai have a habit of telling lies.

“Barrett also had in the Co Clare house etchings, and books, depicting children in poses, and doing sexual acts, which turned our stomachs. We, and any normal adult, would considered these to be pedophilia material.

“They were so disgusting that we immediately drove down lake and handed them into the superintendent in Killaloe garda station, Co Clare.

“But the gardai did not charge Barrett. They let him off with the pedophilia pornography.

“Collins and Barrett squatted our house with an unlicensed gun, refused to pay rent, had child pornography, wrecked the charming property, and contrived with corrupt official Ireland to allow perjury to influence the Killaloe District Court in 2011 against me.

“The State’s case against me was significantly built on Barrett’s prejudiced lying words.

“But Collins’ and Barrett’s greed was insatiable. Six years after they left our house they demanded €30,000 damages from me because they were put out. They took a case to the Irish property Board (PRTB) against Declan White.

“But in that hearing they gave evidence that another man, not Declan White, had pushed Collins up against the wall and had roughed up the child.

“Barrett’s liar’s memory could not keep up with his countless lies. Barrett had proved his own perjury.

“We pointed this out to the Minister for Justice, to the Garda Commissioner, and to the Chief Superintendent in Limerick. But none of them would act appropriately on it.

“Instead, they allowed Barrett to run free from his crimes… something similar to how Pope Benedict had allowed Fr Smith to run free from his crimes.”

It seems to be a fact of life that, no matter where you go, evil resides beside the good, and evil tries to seep into the good to ruin the purer life.

“Barrett’s PRTB testimony was totally different to his District Court evidence, stating that two different men had attacked Collins, so his testimonies were glaring perjury,” said Declan.

“The case against me must be dismissed, because it was built materially on Barrett’s evidence, which was polluted with perjury.

“My good name must be given back to me.

“After we repossessed our house Barrett was allowed to run free by the Irish authorities. And like Fr Smyth he would not stop his crime spree.

“Barrett went on to squat a cottage belonging to frail elderly widow Mrs Valerie Flanagan in Bodyke, Co Clare – about 10 miles away from our home.

“After he moved in Barrett stopped paying her rent. Stopped paying for service charges. Barrett wrecked the old lady’s retirement cottage.

“This was her dream: Mrs Flanagan bought two nearby cottages; one to live in, and the other to rent to help pay for her retirement from London to the peace of rural Ireland.

“But Barrett destroyed her health. Destroyed her cottage. She had to hire a solicitor and a barrister to take cases to the property board – PRTB – and the Circuit Court. Both ordered Barrett to vacate the widow’s cottage. He refused.

“The poor widow had to fight Barrett in the courts for years, costing her a small fortune, crippling her retirement pot, destroying her health, putting her into hospital.

“With the help of her son, who came over from London, she persisted in demanding that the Irish authorities do something about serial-property-abuser Barrett, that the Irish authorities do their job.

“Finally the fragile widow got Barrett out of her cottage. He left one hour ahead of the Sheriff who was arriving to evict him.

“Barrett is a serial-property-abuser who has literally wrecked properties and wrecked the health of Irish landlords going back to the 1960s. He even robbed his father, defrauded his sister and diddled his relatives.

“Cunning and well-educated Barrett got away with all this by using his uppity-manner, and by thwarting laws that protect nightmare tenants.

“Barrett, who talks down to people in a grand voice and was once an RTE television presenter, was also connected into the bent Irish system. He was educated at Clongowes Woods College, and was tapped into the Opus Dei / old boy network.

“He willingly committed perjury in the belief that his kind are never prosecuted because he supports and sucks into the crooked network that rules Ireland.

“Barrett was squatting the widow’s cottage when he brought the property board (PRTB) case against me, when he demanded €30,000 off me. And the PRTB officials went enthusiastically along with Barrett.

“The very PRTB who had previously told Barrett to vacate the widow’s cottage, but he refused, heard his case against me and ordered me to pay €8,000 to Collins and Barrett.

“I refused, especially after the widow Mrs Flanagan told me about what Barrett was doing to her cottage, which he had entered shortly after he had left my house.

“I appealed. I showed how Barrett had given contradictory evidence to the PRTB and to the Killable District Court; that he was a perjurer, a repulsive liar, and an untrustworthy coarse creature.

“Finally my appeal to a PRTB Tribunal threw out Collins’ and Barrett’s claim and their allegations against me.

“Barrett was finally caught out in his own lies. But when this was pointed out to the Garda Commissioner and to the gardai, the reply I received from Chief Superintendent Joh Kerin stated: ‘There are no transcripts or audio recordings available of those court proceedings so who said what five years ago cannot and will never be proved at this stage. As such, I am not in a position to investigate further’.

“He never even bothered to interview Barrett, Collins or me.

“Like Pope Benedict, the Garda Commissioner and the Irish gardai neglected their duty and they allowed criminals – Fr Smyth and Barrett – to go free to seek out more victims: Smith raped more children and Barrett abused another elderly widow, after he had already misused his own widowed mother, and his geriatric sister.”

Ann Gitte and Declan would like their public life back… a public life that has cheered up so many people.

“I do not hate Barrett, Collins, Cardinal Brady, Pope Benedict or even Fr Smyth,” said Ann Gitte. “I pray for them. I wish for all humans to reach Heaven.

“You must be brave if you wish to enter Heaven. You must take all that life throws at you, no matter how unfair it is, and then you must pray for your enemies, offering them love. It is hard. But it is the only way you will find happiness, true happiness, by forgiveness.”

Declan White says: “Pope Francis should question Pope Benedict about the faxes, about allowing Fr Smyth to go on to sexually abuse and rape more children, and the Irish authorities must seek Pope Benedict’s extradition, and the Minister for Justice and the Garda Commissioner must have a real investigation into Barrett, his perjury against me, his mistreatment of his mother, and his abuse of the widow Mrs Flanagan.

“However, Ireland is so riddled by corrupt secret Catholic subversives that I wonder is there anyone left in Ireland, or in the Vatican, who is honest enough to do their job?

“These days I just pray for them all. I forgive them them all. I like being happy, and I love Ann Gitte.”

The news-couple are trying to win their lives back again as writers. Since their careers in Irish journalism were destroyed they have written three novels and a movie screenplay (not about themselves), and they are now waiting on Pope Francis’ reply, and a response from the garda Commissioner and the Irish government.

On this Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017, will Pope Benedict and Cardinal Brady have the courage to live like Christ, to find a resurrection in their souls by voluntarily giving themselves up to the Irish people, to the Irish justice system, to answer the charges that the Pope and the Cardinal aided and abetted child-abusing monster Fr Brendan Smyth to avoid the police and so allowed him to go on to rape hundreds of more children?

Have Pope Benedict and Cardinal Brady the convictions of Christ to face the Good Friday cross and to rise again on Easter Sunday in the glory of GOD?

 

 

 

We Faxed Him about Horrors ..He Ignored Us – Sunday Mirror (London …

SUNDAY MIRROR March 21, 2010

THE POPE knew about the Irish clerical abuse scandal 15 YEARS ago – because the Irish Sunday Mirror told him about it.

A series of faxes about the sex scandal that has rocked the Church in Ireland were sent direct to then Cardinal Ratzinger quizzing him about it after a string of phone calls to his office were ignored.

Ratzinger – then known as Pope John Paul II’s “enforcer” – was sent three faxes to ask him what the Vatican planned to do about the Church’s cover-up of paedophiles in the mid 90s.

But he IGNORED the faxes and no answers were ever given. Instead a sinister message was passed on to Sunday Mirror reporter Declan White warning him off.

CANONICAL INQUIRY: THE IRISH Bishops’ Conference yesterday distributed a press release drawing attention to an article published 13 years ago, in which the current controversy surrounding Cardinal Seán Brady was first reported.

The story, which appeared in the London edition of the Sunday Mirror on August 10th, 1997, ran under the headline Archbishop Brady knew about evil Smyth for 22 years; The story that will shock Ireland.

The opening line of the article, by journalist Declan White, reported that archbishop Seán Brady, helped investigate “sex abuse monster” Fr Brendan Smyth.

“He was part of a secret tribunal which failed to notify the police after an altar boy told how pervert priest Smyth had abused him,” it said. It went on to mention one child who Cardinal Brady interviewed about allegations of sexual abuse perpetrated by Smyth in 1975, quoting the man, who they reported lived in England at the time of publication….

 

 

From Wikipedia:

In 2010, Daly’s successor as Roman Catholic Archbishop of Armagh, Cardinal Seán Brady, faced “huge pressure to resign” after he admitted that in 1975 he witnessed two teenage boys sign oaths of silence after testifying in a Church inquiry against Smyth. Survivors groups saw this as evidence of collusion, but Brady said he “did not have the authority” to turn Smyth in.[11] On 17 March 2010, the Deputy First Minister for Northern Ireland, Martin McGuinness, called for Brady to resign.[12]

 

 

From Wikipedia:

This led to the collapse of the Fianna Fáil–Labour Party coalition government when the poor handling of an extradition request from the RUC by the Irish Attorney General‘s office led to a further delay of Smyth’s trial. An award-winning UTV Counterpoint programme on the scandal by journalist Chris Moore, followed by a book, accused the head of the Norbertines and the Archbishop of Armagh of mishandling the case, and the Norbertines of negligence and a failure to tell others of Smyth’s crimes, enabling Smyth to sexually abuse large numbers of children for 40 years.

Pope Francis

Apostolic College

Vatican City: 00120

Dear Pope Francis,

Please find below a story we have written to the Santa Barbara Independent.

Holy Father, can you explain to us why your predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, never answered our faxes or phone calls to him in the 1990s, yet he and the Catholic Church allowed Fr Brenda Smith to molest children in American, Ireland, Italy and Wales?

Will Pope Benedict give an explanation to the Irish people, and to the parents of the hundreds of children abused by Fr Smyth?

Did Pope Benedict, and Cardinal Seán Brady, and the Irish Hierarchy, send Catholic ‘soldiers’ after us?

Why did the Irish Hierarchy allow threats be made against us to take our home off us in County Clare, Ireland? We were only doing our journalistic jobs of reporting news about pedophile priests plaguing Ireland and the US.

The Hierarchy knew of these threats. They were published in the newspaper we worked for. Your Irish Church did not deny these threats, but used our news stories in their own High Court defense in Dublin in 2010.

Pope Francis, will your Catholic Church leave us alone to enjoy our retirement, or do you want us to continue this life of hopping from country-to-country to avoid revenge by Catholic ‘soldiers’?

Pope Francis, will you call the Catholic Church off, and give us peace?

We greatly look forward to your reply, and as we are still avoiding Catholic hitmen, the best way you can contact us is by email.

Yours sincerely,

Ann Gitte Orbaek and Declan White

 

 

ALONG WITH Pope Benedict, Cardinal Seán Brady also bears a heavy responsibility for Fr. Smyth’s subsequent victims.

If Brady believes in God, if Brady has any decency in him, or any belief in an after-life, Cardinal Brady would voluntarily set himself before an Irish jury.

But what garda in Ireland has the guts to be a real police officer and go and arrest Brady?

What civil servant or law officer working for the Irish government has the morality or the ethics to send Brady for trial?

The gardai, the government officials along with the Catholic Church did not save the children … they saved the Church’s reputation and allowed more children to suffer.

Brady knew of the terrible crimes Fr. Smyth had committed on children.

Brady was responsible for Fr. Smyth’s ensuing sexual abuse of kiddies and Brady failed to provide them an adequate duty of care.

Brady must be faced with a penalty of prison, and a large cash fine, because Brady was involved in a cover-up of the most heinous crimes.

Brady “was part of a secret tribunal which failed to notify the police after an altar boy told how pervert priest Smyth had abused him,” I reported in the Sunday Mirror on August 10th, 1997, under the headline Archbishop Brady knew about evil Smyth for 22 years.

Repeated calls were made to Cardinal Brady to resign because of his part in the cover-up of child abuse by clerics in his jurisdiction.

Brady was promoted to Primate of All Ireland in 1996, and he was further promoted to a cardinal in 2007, but to this day Brady is still denying Christ.

Brady is living an anti-Christ life.

To quote Wikipedia: “The Cardinal told RTÉ News in an interview, broadcast in December 2009 after the publication of the Murphy Report, that he was confident Bishop Donal Murray of Limerick will “do the right thing” in terms of considering his position in the wake of criticism in the Dublin diocesan report.[18] He also said in that interview “If I found myself in a situation where I was aware that my failure to act had allowed or meant that other children were abused, well then, I think I would resign.”

“In March 2010 it became widely known that the then Father Seán Brady had participated in an internal Church legal process into the actions of Father Brendan Smyth in 1975. The process required all participants to maintain the confidentiality of the tribunal. Smyth went on to abuse dozens of children before being brought to justice in 1994.[21]Taken alongside his statement in December, this led to widespread calls for Cardinal Brady’s resignation.[22][23] The information of this internal process had been publicly available as far back as 10 August 1997 in an article by Declan White in the Mirror.[24]

“One of those who was a child interviewed in the internal process is suing Cardinal Brady on the grounds that complaints about Fr. Smyth were not reported to the Garda, that steps were not taken to prevent Fr. Smyth from committing further assaults, that the children were required to sign oaths not to discuss the complaints and that the failure to report the complaints led to the plaintiff and others not receiving appropriate medical treatment.[25]

“The then Labour Party spokesman on social and family affairs Róisín Shortall TD, said Cardinal Brady was “hopelessly compromised by what has emerged”. She said, “There should be a Garda investigation to determine whether or not the failure to report Fr Smyth’s crimes to the civil authorities was, itself, a criminal offence.”[26]

“On 17 March 2010, the deputy First Minister for Northern Ireland, Martin McGuinness, called for Brady to resign.[27]

“In May 2010, Cardinal Brady said that he would not resign as archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland.”

Brady allowed Fr. Smyth to go on a raping rampage for almost two decades because Brady walked on the side of evil by not reporting the beast Fr. Smyth to the authorities.

There is no excuse.

Brady has acted in an anti-Christ manner for over four decades.

Brady well knows the teaching of Jesus:

Matthew 18:6

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”

To save himself from suffering in the after-life Brady should atone for his cover-up in this life by giving himself up to the gardai, admitting his guilt, setting the record straight, and taking his punishment for not reporting Fr. Smyth.

In the 1970s Brady had scared the wits out of those two youngsters with horror stories of them going to Hell if they dared tell the police about them being abused by the paedophile priest.

Brady did not care for the children, instead he endangered more children, because he wanted to protect the Catholic Church’s reputation at the expense of the wee ones.

Brady hushed up Fr. Smyth’s molestations of children for fear of bad publicity.

Brady walked free but the suffering for the abused victims will last the rest of their lives, and their parents also have to live with that anguish.

Cardinal Brady got away with his crimes because the Irish gardai and the Irish civil service are corrupt. Brady would not have gotten away with his crimes in the US where on March 23, 2017:

Ex-Penn State Univeristy president Graham Spanier was convicted of child endangerment for failing to protect victims sexually abused by one of his staff.

Spanier was found guilty of one count of child endangerment, and he failed to provide them an adequate duty of care.

This is exactly what Brady did … but while the president of a prestigious US university faced a court, Brady walks free in Ireland.

On this Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017, will Pope Benedict and Cardinal Brady have the courage to live like Christ, to find a resurrection in their souls by voluntarily giving themselves up to the Irish people, to the Irish justice system, to answer the charges that the Pope and the Cardinal aided and abetted child-abusing monster Fr Brendan Smyth to avoid the police and so allowed him to go on to rape hundreds of more children?

Have Pope Benedict and Cardinal Brady the convictions of Christ to face the Good Friday cross and to rise again on Easter Sunday in the glory of GOD?

God bless them.
