During the reign of Leo XIII the New York Times wrote in an article about the course of the papacy (*):
“.....The Papacy since 1870 has been in a position where practically everything turns upon the personality of the Pontiff and his choice of advisers. There can be no more mediocre Popes under whose nominal guidance matters can go on in commonplace routine. Every successor of Peter now must make a big mark in the history of the Church for good or bad. If he is not very strong, he will be found lamentably weak. There is no longer any middle course.
Leo has been one of the strong kind. His fourteen years of reign have been devoted to building a new sort of Papacy beside rather than upon the ruins of the old structure. Considering the great difficulties and obstacles in the way of his task, proceeding even more from within than without, the result is exceptionally successful. Perhaps the outcome of his labors is best described by saying that he has shown those who thought the Papacy need no longer be taken into account in the world’s affairs because Rome has been wrestled from it that they were profoundly mistaken. The Vatican to-day wields far greater influence in Europe than it has done before since the French Revolution.....”
Let's start with a minor fact.
There was a meticulous perseverance in the hate against Hapsburg Austria. This hate went well beyond the narrow borders of the reaction for a world still marked by the ancient Feudal system and devoted to the church of Rome. The true target of that hate surpassed the initial purposes which were inscribed in the instinctive reaction against what we can term as “reactionary regime”. The hate has been, with a patient work of cultivation worth of a Bonsai master, turned against that superficial reactionary crust of the Hapsburg Austria, and using the alibi of the oppressive central government of Vienna, it has been used to destroy the same core of the entire Austrian world. The logical phases of the game were identical to the ones applied to Russia. There the Bolsheviks, here, in Austria, the Masonry and the Liberals.
To continue to spread excrements over the top of the historical figure of the imperial throne of the Hapsburg, is a sport that today implies less dangers than a poker match against your PC. The sport of course was and is proudly considered in the patriotic literature as fruit of the Italian creativity because it was invented in the Italian enclave in Hapsburg Austria, the city of Trieste of the middle XIX century.
“Merda all’Austria!” or “Shit to Austria!”, was the courageous cry of battle of those little galaxy of militant irredentists, built up with former Garibaldi’s volunteers, delinquents, agents of the Savoy reign, who were considered then by the author Giulio Cesari as – righteously - the first true Fascists. Also in those times that sport was not so dangerous as one would imagine. To cause a violent riot in the city of Trieste, to attack, in violent demonstrations, the consulate of the Vatican city and the seat of the bishop in the most important harbour of the “Roman Catholic Apostolic empire”, causing the murder of two people among whom an Austrian imperial soldier, to cause subversion against the Hapsburg authority arising the hate between ethnic communities, to prepare the subversion with a planned, open conspiracy involving the higher Italian authorities of the civil government of the city, to instruct and organize squads of ‘volunteers’ who would have instigated riots, armed with ponjards, with rockets to signalise the coordination of the attacks realized with what today is considered “modern strategy of urban guerrilla”, with sticks with leaded top, guns and revolvers whose bullets flew near the head of some military and police officials (as they reported in the police documents), well, all that, in the “reactionary Austria at the service of the papacy”, all that costed to the ‘liberal’, ‘anticlerical’ heroes of the Italian Irredentism, just only (§) four condemnations, the maximum of both amounted to the appalling number of twelve (12) months of jail (to spend in the city prison of those times which, cause its origin, its historical building was named and also today even if has been dismissed by a century, keeps the name “dai Gesuiti” or “by the Jesuits”).
And all that in the year of the Lord 1868, not in the 1968 of the Sorbonne’s riots and of the demonstrations for Che Guevara.
All that indicates firmly that also the ‘liberal’, ‘anticlerical’ and anti-Slav Irredentists of the ‘cosmopolitan’ city of Trieste had their brave saint protector, the saint who protects the assaulter of the bishop seats from the police oppression of a ‘reactionary regime’ who formally was at the service of those the same bishops. Those aggressors had a saint because you know that the church of Rome could be very generous, and can pardon even the ones who the most wounded her infinite patient, especially if those wounds then will demonstrate to be the irreplaceable means to wipe away powerful enemies or old allies who became a dangerous obstacle for the religious dominance in Europe and in the world. Probably the image of the saint to adore was seated in that church dedicated to the Mother – pardon – to the Father of all the Cornerstones. Four years before the ‘anticlerical’ and anti-Slovenian violence in the city of Trieste, Giuseppe Mazzini, the Masonic spiritual father of those little galaxy of heroes subverting Trieste, built in London the Romanist saint Peter church (***).
It had and have a certain importance to spread metaphorically organic biological wastes over the figure of the Hapsburg Kaiser. Because the imperial top of Austria was only the point of departure in order to let then pour the spiritual faeces also over other powers and dynasties who were strictly in contact with the Hapsburg crown for the common interests in the foreign policy. The Hapsburgs and the empire were accepting without discussion the Roman Catholicism for what it appeared to be. But not for what it hid inside. Of course opportunistic exchanges was also the norm. No more or less than the opportunistic exchanges between courageous ‘heretics’ and not-spoken interests of Rome which led to the flourishing of ecumenical Switzerland in the same time meanwhile Lutheran Germany and Prussia were going to be buried alive. Austria was the religious arm for excellence of Rome, but at the same time it was a secular body, with a language and an hearth and material interests in common with the other Northern German cousin, the Second Reich under the Protestant Prussia leadership. How those communion of sentiments and interests would have entered in conflict with the Kaiserliche religious mission of Roman Catholic evangelisation (“Apostolic” was the attribute of the Kaiser) for the triumph of the papacy? Precisely this was the nightmare of Rome. After having used for centuries (millenniums if we start from Sumeria or ancient Egypt), the secular state entities like healthy carrier to spread the church and the occult system of pagan magician power controlling it all around the world, Rome, with an indescribable terror, discovered that she could have been treated exactly like she treated the others. The parasite could have been used by the same victim.
The sudden change of the policy of Rome after the election of Leo XIII gave an evidence about the existence of such nightmares, which can be also traced down in the common historiography of the papacy of those times. But what I want to do in this seat, is to gave a name to that nightmare, a name that, as regard those few sources by me consulted, has been never mentioned by the academic historians, even if they recalled it in a very dangerous contiguity with the exposition of the troubles shacking the Vatican foreign policy. This name is: “The Three Emperors Agreement”.
The Agreement among three Emperors was built by chancellor Otto von Bismarck in 1872 and its purpose was the creation of a balance among the three continental powers of Eurasia, based on the bloodlines of the Hapsburg family, of the Hohenzollern family and of the Romanov family. How was considering this balance of powers, the Vatican, in the secret thought of its cardinals and Jesuits controllers? Do we corrupt so much the reality if we say that that agreement was considered by the papacy with the same sentiments of Dracula when facing the holy water and the cross?
From Amber Path North, to Amber Path South and continuing all along the Balkans till the Ottoman Turkey, we have a concentrate of religious borders and differences who represents by a side the infinite appetite and by the other its reverse, the infinite terror of the Vatican. The appetite of course was that ocean of schismatic Orthodoxies which would have represented a fabulous plunder to grasp in order to increase the democratic weight of the Vatican Catholicism in the world and so to definitively push in a corner the Protestant heresy. But the nightmare was rising from the observation that the keys to open that immense religious caveau, were entirely in the hands of secular bloodlines, who had the bollocks necessary to resist against the callings of the Prostitute on the 7 Hills. Those bloodlines preferred to treat the question among themselves, and the intelligent choice started to materialize just in that Three Emperors Agreement promoted by the very powerful Protestant Prussia based Second Reich.
With that treaty the Robber of Rome discovered that the tool of the Hapsburg “Apostolic” Kaiserreich was practically useless. The religious questions of the Balkans became matter of discussion among the three emperors and Rome, literally, was pushed outside the door. To think that the Hapsburg crown should have followed the desires of the pope to Roman-Catholicize the schismatic Balkans, it would have meant to push Hapsburg against Romanov. And Protestant Hohenzollern together with the schismatic Romanov. The memory of 1866 was still near. To ask the Hapsburg emperor the realization of a suicidal war in order to obtain what he would have obtained with only an intelligent “gentlemen’s agreement” between three imperial dynasties, was surely considered an abominable idiocy not only by the same pro-papacy Austrian court, but by the same most lucid Vatican cardinals' and Jesuits' minds.
So it came Leo XIII, XIII like that 13th of July 1868 when the Masonic hand of Rome pushed her Irredentist mob to riot in Trieste. Leo XIII’s policy was aimed to subtract from the influence of that cursed alliance the object of the agreement, the religious coffer lying in the Balkans. From this instant it is possible to trace the events of the Balkans in the last 150 years, and with the “dead or alive” urgency of the Vatican we can finally understand the motive for the continue state of war in and for the bloodshed of the Balkans, from the ethnic cleansing performed by the Fascists in the twenties, to the last, still at work, ethnic cleansing against the Serbs in Kosovo.
Of consequence, in the Hapsburg Austria’s mind the thought to proceed autonomously in the Balkan was, if not absent, very weak. To move chess in the Balkan would have meant the immediate entry in action of Russia. Russia would have asked Germany about its intentions on the Balkans. And Germany, whose natural aerial of expansion, together Austria, were the Balkans, would have not hurt the Romanov as they could have well found in the Roman Catholic and with enormous thirsty of revenge (after Sedan) France a valid ally in a war against Protestant led Germany. Not for a casual coincidence, the first king of Yugoslavia was a sort of fulfilment of that French thirsty of revenge. Peter I of monarchic Yugoslavia fought on the side of the Frenchmen in the 1870 war against Germany. A wonderful example on how Rome is able to use even the defeats of her allies and the thirsty of revenge as fuel for her evil designs.
The troubles of 1878 confirmed the deadly threat to Rome carried by the Three Emperors Agreement. With the defeat of the Ottoman empire by Russia and the sequent Saint Stephan treaty, the principal Schismatic Christian nations of the Balkans acquired independence, among them of course Serbia. But Russia didn't respect previous agreements with Austria, and didn't allow to the Hapsburg empire to enter in Bosnia Herzegovina as established in previous agreements in case of defeat of the Ottoman empire. Again war was in the air. Bismarck immediately started to work in order to save the Three Emperors Agreement, with success. Roman Catholic Austria obtained the administration of Bosnia Hercegovina and other near regions. Without to pass through Vatican, but thanks to a direct accord, wanted and managed by a Protestant chancellor, with a Schismatic empire.
Feeling that the Triple Agreement was a trap squeezing her ambitions of religious domain and supremacy on the temporal power, Rome started to act outside the strict traditional accord with her by-now useless Hapsburg tool. The desires of Rome to directly deal with the Schismatics, traditionally under Russian protection, bypassing the Hapsburg crown, was pure sand-in-the-eyes for Austria which realized that all her autonomy from Rome in foreign political and religious affairs could have been in its turn transformed in an useless heavy wreckage. Vienna immediately started, if not an open policy of resistance against the new unexpected autonomous aggressive course of Rome, at least to put obstacles and denials when dealing common objects of foreign political activity with the Vatican.
Probably the new ambitious and shameless foreign policy of Vatican was just present in some minds-who-counts (Jesuits?) during the previous reign of Pious IX and even before. Using the bridles of the reactionary clerical politic from a side and of the enlightened liberal Masonic new age from the other side (double-opposed-forces dialectic), Rome could control the politic of the Hapsburg horse probably till the point to transform it in a steer to be sent in the 1914-1918 slaughterhouse.
It was having in mind this spectral presence, another true Ghost wandering all along Eurasia, that the papacy and its Jesuits controllers afforded the second half of the XIX century and the beginning of the sequent century. At the end of the First World conflict that triple headed Ghost was definitively disappeared, and this little detail of the modern history should indicate, somehow or other, that in the outburst of first Eurasian carnage the responsibility of the Vatican was decisively not secondary respect the one of any other actor on the scene. The Hapsburg “Apostolic” Kaiser who insolently dared to extend his historical imperial rights of appointment of the bishops even to the episcopate of Belgrade, the Romanov who were the traditional protectors of that religious safe filled with schismatic Christians called “Balkans region”, the Hohenzollern dinasty who dared to openly slap the face of Loyola with the glove of the Bismarck's Kulturkampf, well, after 1918, these Triple Freddy Krueger Agreement who was infesting with the nightmares the sleeps of the popes, vanished with the first silences between the trenches.
Then Wladimir Ledochowsky entered in action and picked up a just existing baton. The 26th General superior of the Jesuit order was simply the right person at the right moment with the right heritage of personal revenge to be applied as “inscrutable design of God” to change the world for the triumph of Rome. All that was not a point of arrival, it was just the point of departure for a deeper purge (the deepest within historical living memory) to which Eurasia will be submitted by the Jesuits' army and by the Vatican, a purge which will transform the once multi-religious Amber Path and Balkans region, in a long strip with the both extremes, the Protestant North and the Schismatic South, transformed in a desert, meanwhile only the Roman Catholic centre remained an oasis nearly untouched after nearly hundred years of religious carnages. Of evil designs of the church of Rome.
(§) Correction 18 Feb 2010: I forget to verify the source about the condemned people in consequence of the Facts of July 1868. No, they were not two people condemned at a max 6 months of jail, but four people: one at 1 year jail, two at 6 months jail and one at 1 month jail; also in this case the amount of the penalty was simply ridicolous respect the criminal devastations.
And of course I changed the wrongly quoted "Washington Post" with the correct newspaper, "New York Times". See the second comment of Douglas Willinger below.

“....Mazzini arrived in London in early 1837, where he scratched a meagre living writing reviews. He settled in Clerkenwell which had become known as "Little Italy" due to the influx of Italian political refugees. Mazzini set up a free school for Italian children in Hatton Garden in 1841.Thanks to Mazzini's efforts, the Italian Church of St Peter in Clerkenwell was built in 1864 and still stands today . Mazzini increased his revolutionary contacts during the next few years and in 1840 established a workingmen's association. The later Mazzini Garibaldi club in Red Lion Square was a social club for Italian working men. It was an important venue from its establishment in 1864 until it closed in 2008....”
