The world’s attention is descending on Vatican City as rumors swirl Pope Francis is readying to resign.
Resignation rumors are gaining traction in the wake of a series of unusual activities by the 85-year-old leader of the Catholic Church , according to a report.
Francis, who has been confined to a wheelchair due to crippling knee pain, canceled a scheduled trip to Africa, the report noted.
He has also supposedly called for a meeting of cardinals, which the Washington Examiner is unable to confirm.
It is this highly unusual meeting that is fueling the resignation rumors, the report noted.
“Inside the Vatican, moments ago, we saw a ton of cardinals, which our guide tells us is highly unusual,” Megyn Kelly, who is in Vatican City, posted to social media. “That’s not normal, and, moments earlier, when we were in the Sistine Chapel, a priest or a bishop, we’re unclear, came in and gave us a blessing,” she said. “Also highly unusual. What was he doing there? Why was he doing that? What did he know?”
Ranking members of the clergy are expected to be in Rome this week for the Tenth World Meeting of Families, which is set to begin Wednesday.Francis assumed his role in 2013 following the resignation of then-Pope Benedict XVI.Resignations are a rarity for the papacy, but when addressing his knee pain in the past, Francis has said, “Rather than operate, I’ll resign,” according to the report.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
