Covid-19 has been a catalyst for the Covid-19 pandemic. “chaos” “turmoil”These stem not just from the “lacking knowledge”About the transmission and danger of this virus, but not from the will to be super-rich. “snatch an opportunity to bring people in line,”Gerhard Ludwig Mueller spoke in interview with Austria’s St. Boniface Institute last week. He is an important judge in the Vatican court.
The world’s financial elites are now using the pandemic and the measures governments take to fight the spread of the virus to subject people to “total control”Establish a global network “surveillance state,”He also added. He added that the St. Boniface had published a short video showing the interview, and the cardinal later confirmed the authenticity of the footage to the German newspaper dpa.
“People, who sit on the throne of their wealth,”See an “opportunity to push through their agenda,”The cardinal stated that Bill Gates was Microsoft’s cofounder, as well as billionaire George Soros, Klaus Schwab (head of Davos Economic Forum), and others were involved in the global control conspiracy.
The global financial elites were then accused by the cardinal of trying to bring forth the child. “a new man”Created “in their own image and likeness,”He said that such a fate would be a shameful one for him. “That has nothing to do with democracy,”The former Regensburg bishop who was once the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said.
The cardinal’s statements, which only recently surfaced in the media, sparked a wave of criticism from German media outlets, which quickly branded his words “conspiracy theories.”
