2019.08.10 07:45 Ainsoph777 Father Felix Morlion of Pro Deo, the money launderer extraordinaire

Catholic Priests also act as lobbyists and can attract billions of dollars to covert intelligence projects. Witness Father Felix Morlion, a Belgian Dominican priest who founded the Catholic intelligence organization Pro Deo. The devout Catholic William “Wild Bill” Donovan made a pact with Father Felix Morlion to merge their intelligence apparatus’s together. When the Nazis took control of western Europe, Donovan helped Morlion move his propaganda operations from Lisbon to New York.

Avro Manhattan in his 1985 book Murder in the Vatican briefly mentions this relationship. “During World War II, in July 1944, for instance, Pope Pius XII decorated General William Donovan with the Grand Cross of the Order of St. Sylvester, a reward given only to 100 other men, 'who by outstanding deed...championed the Church.' The significance of the reward was in the fact that Donovan had served as a chief of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the wartime predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency, or CIA. Early in the war, in 1941, Donovan had already forged an alliance with the founder of a Catholic intelligence agency, called Pro Deo (Felix Morlion) . The two agencies collaborated during and after the war, to such an extent that eventually they amalgamated. This resulted in the de facto integration of the CIA and of the Vatican intelligence, into a global USA-Vatican apparatus, whose operations now encompassed the globe. The amalgamation operated in favour of the advancement of the Catholic Church in the political fields, at home and abroad. And indeed, in joint USA-Vatican promotion of their respective objectives. It helped in the promotion of Presidential candidates in the USA, and in the promotion of potential papal candidates in the Vatican. The Vatican-CIA spying operations have assessed both Presidents and Popes, during the past three decades, and acted accordingly.” https://archive.org/details/MurderInTheVatican

Father Morlion’s financial intrigues are shown in a declassified letter of the Inter-American Development Bank (The bank of the Organization of American States (OAS)), dated April 11th 1966. The letter is from Grayton Upton, an executive vice President of the Bank, to Walter Rostow, special assistant to the Jesuit educated U.S. President Lyndon Johnson. The subject heading on the letter is revealing in itself: “Father Morlion and Program, of Catholic Church for Indoctrination of Latin American Priests in Divulgation of Principles of U.S. Free Enterprise System.”
Parts of Grayton Upton’s letter to Walter Rostow include: “You will recollect the lunch here at the Bank a few weeks ago with Father Morlion. I now enclose a description of what he is doing. I personally consider this matter of the utmost importance to U.S. Policy makers for Latin America, and ask you to give it the most serious study. I first met Father Morlion at the Caracas meeting of CICYP last year. There he gave a short talk in which he said, in effect, that after a year or so of letting the priesthood in Latin America follow their own ideas with respect to economics (and politics) the Pope had decided to make a major effort to indoctrinate them in the concepts of the free enterprise system and to insist that they take an active role in teaching these concepts. The chief mechanism for this is the International University for Social Studies Pro Deo in Rome, which I understand must in the future be attended by any Latin American Priest before he rises to a higher level in the Catholic hierarchy. In addition the various economic and social directives which will be issued to the Church in Latin America.”
Continuing “In effect what Father Morlion now wishes to obtain is the following: 1. ) A serious review of, and orientation in, this whole effort by the U.S. Government (I understand that Ambassador Reinhardt is well informed on the matter.) 2. ) The strong moral backing of the U.S. Government, in a discreet fashion, of this effort. In this respect, as a first step, he wants to arrange a lunch in which you both, and hopefully Lincoln Gordon, would be present, with as many of the U.S. Directors as possible, where you would indicate the moral support of the U.S. Government for this effort - a support which would hopefully contribute towards substantial private contributions from U.S. business. 3. ) An investigation of the possibility of financial support for this effort by the U.S. Government through an appropriate agency”.
The banker Grayton Upton notes:
“For obvious reasons, efforts have been made to date to give no publicity to the program” and says in conclusion “PS: I understand that commitments have already been received for contributions from business of $250M (250 Million)and that Father Morlion expects this to be increased to $1MM (1 Billion) in the next few weeks.”
Father Felix Morlion sent Grayton Upton a correspondence (April 6th, 1966) five days previous the letter quoted above from Upton to Walter Rostow:
“Mr. Grayton Upton
Executive Vice President
Inter-American Development Bank
808 17th Street
Washington, D. C.
Dear Friend,
Here with the second draft improved on the basis of your suggestions. If you think the matter is sufficiently clear, you might send to Mr. Mann, Mr. Gordon, Mr. Rostov photostats of this so that they can tell you which day - they could eventually meet with a few business-men to conclude the first phase. Mr. Huerdemat or another assistant can eventually make some further improvements after phoning me. Before the middle of next week, I hope to tell you what first payments are made by some of the business leaders approached. As you can imagine, the Rome authorities are waiting for my return at the end of the month to start preparations in practice. I want to thank you again in the name of my high Roman friends for the inspiration you gave me in Caracas and the help so generously these days. We will need very much that you should repeat your speech of Caracas in one of our Rome symposia, possibly in the Autumn.
Totus tuus Pro Deo
Felix A. Morlion
Pres., Intern. Pro Deo University”

Jesuit trained Galo Plaza, former president of Ecuador, became Secretary general of the OAS (the parent organization of the Inter-American Development Bank), just 2 years after these above exchanges! : Here is a quick background on Galo Plaza : " Galo Plaza seemed perfect for restoring the OAS’s internal stability and improving the organization’s image. Rockefeller circles likened him to an “international troubleshooter.” Loyal to his roots as a major Ecuadorian landowner, lawyer for the United Fruit Company, and former student at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service (Jesuit), Galo Plaza could be counted on to maintain order within the organization while ensuring OAS support for CIA subversion of leftist-minded governments, not only in Ecuador (where the Velasco and Arosemena governments had both fallen to CIA-backed coups), but throughout Latin America. He had also endorsed the efforts of Nelson’s brother, John 3rd, to introduce birth control among Ecuador’s Indians through the Agency for International Development, a major new policy initiative. In addition, Galo Plaza could ensure the hemisphere wide transfer of rural development programs from Rockefeller's American International Association for Economic and Social Development (AIA) to the OAS. Most important, all this would give Rockefeller, through his influence on Galo Plaza, added weight not only in the OAS, but also in any White House deliberation over using the OAS "- Thy Will Be Done : The Conquest Of The Amazon, Nelson Rockefeller And Evangelism In The Age Of Oil ,Gerard Colby, Charlotte Dennett,

There is quite a bit of information on Father Felix Morlion's activities in Paul L. Williams book Operation Gladio : The Unholy Alliance between the Vatican, the CIA, and the Mafia, particularly with Mehmet Ali Agca and the "Bulgarian Connection" hoax here are some excerpts :https://archive.org/details/OperationGladioTheUnholyAllianceBetweenTheVaticanTheCIAAndTheMafia/page/n1

" Fr. Felix Morlion, a Belgian priest, was affiliated with the Hyperion Language School and served to establish a branch of the “school” in Rome. During World War II, he had worked closely with Wild Bill Donovan and the Office of Strategic Services by creating Pro Deo a Catholic intelligence agency. When the Nazis seized control of Western Europe, Donovan relocated Morlion and his agency from Lisbon to New York. In 1945, the priest relocated to Rome, where he became the private emissary of Pope Pius XII and four of the pope’s successors. Throughout the 1960s, he remained a pivotal US intelligence agent, as witnessed by his key role in the Cuban Missile Crisis. At JFK’s urging, the Dominican priest had attended a strategic meeting in Andover, Massachusetts, where he established a communication channel between Moscow and Washington, mediated by Pope John XXIII, through whom messages were passed that brought an end to the threat of a nuclear war. In 1966, Morlion established, with funding from the CIA, the Pro Deo University which became Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali (the International University of Social Studies). As president of the new university, Morlion became a force in the formation of the right-wing policies of the Italian government. He also reportedly began recruiting of terrorists and assassins, including Moretti and Mehmet Ali Ağca (who attempted the hit on John Paul II) ...... In 1981, Count Alexandre de Marenches, the chief executive of the Service de Documentation Extérieure et de Contre-Espionnage (SDECE—the French secret service), served as the leader of Safari. Marenches was also a member of the SMOM(Knights of Malta), along with CIA director William Casey, Secretary of State Alexander Haig, Treasury Secretary William Simon, US ambassador to the Vatican William Wilson, Licio Gelli, Fr. Felix Morlion, and General Santovito of SISMI. Through the SMOM, Marenches became aware of John Paul II’s negotiations with the Kremlin and agreed that the Polish upstart had to be removed from the Holy Office ......... On April 18, Ağca, Çatlı, and Çelik traveled to Milan to meet with Bekir Çelenk at Stibam. They stayed at the Hotel Agosta, where Ağca registered under the name Faruk Ozgun. From Milan, the trio made their way to Rome for a visit with Morlion to learn the layout of the priest’s apartment. On April 23, the day John Paul II was holding a private audience with CIA director William Casey, the Turks were provided with 9mm Browning Hi Power semiautomatic pistols with 13-round cartridge clips. They had received training on the use of these weapons by CIA agent Frank Terpil. The semiautomatics had been imported from East Germany by Horst Grillmayer, an arms dealer and operative of the BND. The place of origin was significant since the pistols, when found, would support the Bulgarian thesis...... Ağca was sentenced to life in prison with one year of solitary confinement. Despite this sentence, the prisoner soon received an ongoing stream of surprising visitors, including Francesco Pazienza, General Santovito, Fr. Morlion, members of the Camorra (including fellow prisoner Raffaelo Cutolo), agents from the CIA, and Monsignor Marcello Morgante, who represented Archbishop Marcinkus of the IOR. The visits were choreographed by Pazienza to advance the Bulgarian thesis. During his daily visits, Pazienza, with Cutolo at his side, showed Ağca photographs of Antonov and several Bulgarians they wished to implicate in the assassination attempt. For hours, Ağca poured over the photos, memorizing distinctive characteristics and receiving information about the personal habits and tics of the fall guys... Another problem came from Ağca’s description of Antonov’s apartment. The distinctive features he described, including an ornate room divider between the living and dining areas, were not found in the Bulgarian’s living quarters. They were unique to the flat one floor below, which was occupied by Fr. Morlion. Ağca also mentioned meeting Antonov’s wife and children during the planning sessions in April. But the Bulgarian’s family was not in Rome at that time. They had returned to Bulgaria."

In declassified letters on the subject of Pro Deo, from C.D Jackson to Henry Luce it is seen that Father Felix Morlion was in communiucation with the fundraiser John Price Jones who raised over a billion dollars with his fundraising! " Morlion has also been talking to John Price Jones. When I explained to him that these fund~raising organizations did not actually solicit money themselves but acted as a professional secretariat for the appropriate individuals, Morlion assured me that this was different. and that they had an individual who had "done the Work for Fordham". I will find out more about this. " source : https://archive.org/details/IlovepdfMerged2 ,https://www.nytimes.com/1964/12/24/archives/john-price-jones-fundraiser-who-collected-a-billion-dead-former.html
I posit that who had "done the work for Fordham" was Fordham educated Cardinal Francis Spellman. Quoting from Covert Action Information Bulletin #25, we see Spellman was reported to have been apart of the Pro Deo network.
" In the latter part of April 1948 the Romanian Timpul published an article, “The Vatican Espionage Service,” citedin the Soviet Journal New Times, No.31, 1948, at pp. 5, 6. As reported, the article indicated that, “In 1946 the Pope entrusted the Dominican friar [Felix A.] Morlion, a Belgian, with the reorganization of the Vatican intelligence service and its merger with the Jesuit espionage network. The central intelligence department of the Vatican is headed by Janssens, a general of the Jesuit Order. His deputy is Montini, the acting Vatican Secretary of State, and his assistants are Schmider, the administrative director of the central Jesuit espionage bureau, and Morlion, director of Centro d’informazione pro Deo. The central intelligence department is subdivided into branches and sections dealing with the various countries. One of the main branches is the socalled ‘special division’ which operates under the signboard of the Centro d’informazione pro Deo press agency. Similar divisions have been set up in the Centro d’informazione pro Deo units in all parts of the world. In New York the ‘special division’ is directed by Cardinal Spellman, in Innsbruck(Austria) by Regent, the rector of a Jesuit college, in Coblenz (Germany) by the Catholic priest Poelaert who is also director of the Catholic press agency. The branch in charge of espionage in Eastern and Southeastern Europe is supervised by Schmider and Preseren, the Jesuits’ chief expert on the Slav countries and adviser to the Vatican Secretary of State. In August 1966, Morlion approached H.L. Hunt for funding Vatican anti-Communist operations in Latin America. Hunt gave an interview to the British Guardian Weekly, February 27, 1969: “ ‘I was approached by Paolo Cardinal Marella, who said he spoke for the Pope and asked if I would supply members of my [20,000 member] Youth Freedom Speakers’ movement who spoke Spanish to be sent south [to Latin America] to engage in speech making and activities. I was told the Pope was thinking in terms of 11 million dollars a year support for the entire movement against communism in Spanish-speaking countries.’ . , . The project was now centered in New York, at the Asian Speakers Bureau, with the Free Pacific Association, Inc., on Riverside Drive [another front for the Rev. Moon’s Unification Church]. A key figure in this papal concern over Leftist threats to the Vatican’s greatest stronghold was the Rev. Felix A. Morlion, who was present at the original discussions.” Subsequently, Morlion emerged as a key figure in the “Bulgarian Connection” hoax when the fascist Grey Wolf Agca attempted to assassinate the Pope: It appears that Morlion lived in Rome directly below the apartment of theBulgarian Antonov, and was a possible source of Agea’s description of Antonov’s apartment. (See, II Mondo, April8, 1985; UEspresso, May 19, 1985.)”

the Jesuit Father Robert Graham confirmed that Morlion was a CIA agent. He was quoted in a Italian article from La Repubblica titled THE PIOUS FRIAR WORKING FOR THE CIA : " "Yes, Father Felix Morlion was from the CIA, he was a big point of reference for American intelligence". This was declared by Jesuit Father Robert Graham, one of the most qualified espionage history scholars. Father Graham added that Morlion, who died two years ago, was called "Cip" meaning "Pro-Deo Information Center". A spokesman for the CIA, Mark Mansfield, said instead that "I have not yet read the statements of the Italian Prime Minister. However, I repeat, it is not that we confirm or deny the fact that Morlion was our agent or the words of Andreotti or not , we simply do not comment "......" The prime minister claims that Agca was able to describe Antonov's apartment despite never setting foot in it, as it turned out to the trial. Therefore someone suggested to him how that house was made but the "cue" contained an error, the existence of a sliding door, a detail that, instead, was found only in the apartment below where Father Morlion lived. " https://ricerca.repubblica.it/repubblica/archivio/repubblica/1991/11/27/il-pio-frate-che-lavorava-per-la.html

By the 1940's Pro Deo had gotten some big backers behind it, quoting from a 1942 article titled The Pro Deo Movement by Anna Brady : " In the preparation and presentation of this material such notable authorities as Mr. Paul Anderson, Hon. Adolph Berle, Jr. , Sir Bernard Pares (nonCatholics) and M, Jacques Maritain, Miss Helen Iswolski, and Father Wilfrid Parsons, S.J. have participated. One of the important aspects of this work is that it allows the practical co- operation between Catholics and non-Catholics with the aim of making religious motives the strongest force in public life. For these subjects are treated not on the basis of dogma but according to the self-evident truths of natural law concerning the rights and duties of many in society. In this particular field of politics, the Pro Deo Movement holds that the spirit of denominational contro- versy must be kept out of the common concern for the reconstruction of temporal society on universal moral principles. "https://ia802604.us.archive.org/31/items/stmstjosephlilies34testuoft/stmstjosephlilies34testuoft.pdf

Pro Deo comes up in the Will H Hays Memoirs. Hayes was the first chairman of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America
: " The most significant experiences of the trip, especially in the light of later events, were my visits with Cardinal Pacelli and Count Galleazzi, which the latter graciously arranged. In two pleasant social calls Mrs. Hays and I found the cardinal most sympathetic and surprisingly well informed about America. He spoke excellent English. I also had another visit of at least two hours, during which he told me quite frankly the purpose of his visit to the United States—it had to do with the Pro Deo movement—noting that it was the first such official visit of a papal secretary of state. It was during these visits that I learned that a private audience with Pope Pius XI would be arranged for me soon after we reached Rome. " ......" In the midst of the conversation the Pope picked up a big loose-leaf book, two or three inches thick, lying on his table, and pushed it toward me. He explained that this volume of reports contained the series of original communiques sent out from the Comintern in Moscow to comrades and fellow travelers all over the world, and that one of the most emphatic orders was to "go out and get hold of the cinema of the world." This was a shocking revelation, backed as it was by such irrefutable evidence, and it sheds clear light on Communist efforts in sub- sequent years. When we had finished discussing motion pictures, the Holy Father went at once into the Pro Deo movement, of which Cardinal Pacelli had given me some account on our trip over. I was again impressed by the unity and the world sweep of the organized idea: that the Church was leading a movement of religionists everywhere, a united movement for God and the good in a concerted drive to oppose the spread of Communism."....." Finally reaching the secretary's room adjoining the private office of the Holy Father, we were greeted most cordially in scholarly English of a distinctly New England flavor by a man who seemed like an old friend. He repeated Count Galleazzi's suggestion about speaking freely and said he would see us when we came out. This was none other than our own Cardinal Spellman! A moment later we found ourselves in the presence of the Pope, seated at his broad desk placed in the middle of a small platform raised perhaps a foot above the floor. He was in the familiar white raiment, with the white cap; and his calm presence was a benediction. I was shown to a chair at the Holy Father's right, with Count Galleazzi at my right and Mrs. Hays still farther to the right, opposite the Holy Father." source : (https://archive.org/details/memoirs00hays/page/n0)

Morlion was very involved in the film industry himself, : " In an article published in 1954 in La Rivista del Cinematografo (the official Catholic film journal published by the Centro Cattolico Cinematografi co), the Belgian Jesuit Félix A. Morlion clarified the Catholic awareness of the power of cinema and its obligation to fight against Communists in the film industry. Morlion was heavily involved in Italian cinema in the post-war period. He contributed to the creation of the Cineforum (see the next section titled American Cinema and Catholic Press) and collaborated with film directors, such as Roberto Rossellini. His article (RC 1954: 5) not only listed all the Communist cinema initiatives—such as the creation of the ‘cinebrigate di informazione’ (Information Cine-Brigades), information groups which had the responsibility for strengthening the party by distributing audiovisual propaganda documents in large and small centres, but also highlighted the dissemination of those Christian values through the medium of cinema. As he Stated, ‘Christians have become aware of the exceptional psychological power of film in attracting the masses’ (Morlion 1954: 7) source :https://archive.org/details/RoutledgeAdvancesInFilmStudiesDanielaTreveriGennariPostWarItalianCinemaAmericanI

2019.07.17 08:38 pijinglish Part 3: A Timeline of Epstein, Trump, Sex Trafficking, and the Intelligence Community

NY Daily News - February 28, 1993: The first newspaper article to note Ghislaine’s acquaintance with Jeffrey Epstein, at the opening of MercBar.
I'm going to borrow heavily from Cadet-Bone-Spurs' post made earlier today:
“Jane Doe” alleges Donald Trump sexually assaulted her on four separate occasions, culminating in a rape when she was just 13 at Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion.Her evidence? Three sworn declarations – from her, a friend she confided in at the time, AND one of Epstein’s recruiters.This case was filed in New York federal court in 2016. You can read her pleading here The case was NOT dismissed. Jane withdrew her complaint on November 4, 2016, saying she was “afraid to show her face” due to “numerous threats” against her.Jane came to New York in June 1994 “in the hope of starting a modeling career.” She soon met "Tiffany," who offered to bring her to parties where she could meet folks in the business - hosted by Epstein.This is eerily similar to tales of recruiters in MiamiHerald's reporting.Jane claims Trump had “sexual contact" with her at four parties she attended that summer. She understood both Trump and Epstein "knew that [she] was 13 years old.”The fourth time, she says "Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me."Jane claims a 12-year-old named Maria was forced to be involved in the third encounter. She never saw Maria again after that.Following the rape, Jane says Trump threatened to hurt her and her family if she ever told anyone. He suggested he could make her “disappear like Maria.”Jane is not the only witness offered in this filing. A woman using the pseudonym “Joan Doe” attests that she is willing to testify that Jane told her about the sexual encounters with Trump and Epstein “in the 1994-95 school year.”Here is her sworn declarationJane also filed a sworn declaration from Tiffany, who says Epstein employed her starting in 1991 “to get attractive adolescent women to attend these parties.” Tiffany corroborates Jane’s story and claims to have “personally witnessed” the four encounters between Jane and Trump.Tiffany also claims she personally witnessed the “one occasion where Mr. Trump forced [Jane] and a 12-year-old female named Maria [to] perform oral sex” on him. She also claims to have witnessed Trump’s later threats against Jane.Tiffany says she worked for Epstein until 2000....Here is more on Epstein that matches details in the MiamiHerald reports: being forced to give him massages, Epstein forcing digital penetration, his irritation at her protests, etc.Listen to her voice. Listen to her story.Here she recounts her first encounter with Trump when she was 13. Her description matches his known idiosyncrasies and germophobia:He required her to touch him with a glove."He seemed to take a liking to me because I was so young...he kind of liked things to be his first."**"Donald Trump specifically asked about me because I remind him of his daughter, and she said, 'Well, she's 13 as well.'"**I know we avoid seriously discussing this because it is disturbing beyond comprehension. But we all know what Trump has said about Ivanka.This. Adds. Up.
(1995) The Untold Story of Trump Model Management (Part 1):
7 years had passed since John Casablancas had appeared on the cover of New York magazine, declaring his love for underage girls, and Donald and Ivana had made a decision-their daughter, Ivanka, would become a model. Despite a widespread belief that she was too young, too naive, and wasn’t quite aesthetically suited for the industry-Ivanka Trump was nonetheless able to get signed to a major agency, At the tender age of 13, she signed on with the new look department of Elite Model Management- under the tutelage of none other than John Casablancas:"It seems that Monica Pillard, the president of Elite, had been eyeing Ivanka since she spotted her on her father's lap four years ago, when Mr. Trump was a judge of a new-talent contest for the agency.Mr. Trump and Elite have a longstanding, informal relationship. Ms. Pillard served as a judge in the Miss Universe pageant, which is jointly owned by Mr. Trump and CBS, as is the Miss Teen USA pageant. John Casablancas, Elite's founder, is a friend of Mr. Trump's, and Elite has held events at Trump Tower in Manhattan."Yes, Donald Trump decided to entrust his daughter to this man. Yes, Casablancas still had his job. He would weather charges of tax evasion, and class action lawsuit-but eventually his past caught up with him. In 2002 he was sued by a former model who alleged that Casablancas had raped her when she was 15, and then forced her to get an abortion. The lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount, and in 2003 Elite model management officially declared bankruptcy.Despite the fact that Ivanka largely flopped as a model, Donald Trump would continue to brag about her physical beauty, physique, and ostensibly prolific modeling career.
Personally, I think this is one of the most damning pieces of evidence. Trump knew the allegations against Casablancas, but he let Ivanka work for him anyway.
[EDIT: For the sake of fairness, here's some additional info about the Jane Doe case sent to me by another Redditor. I've been meaning to make a Clinton post because I have my own theories about what's happening there, but it should be noted that the Jane Doe case is still very much up in the air:The Guardian
A publicist using the pseudonym “Al Taylor” is acting as a representative for Johnson, and has been shopping around to media outlets a video of a woman who wears a disguise while recounting the allegations against Trump. “Taylor” said in telephone calls last month that he was seeking $1m for the tape.[H]e then became threatening when asked more about his motivations in seeking the money for the video and about his true identity. “Just be warned: we’ll sue you if we don’t like what you write,” he said. “We’ll sue your ass, own your ass and own your newspaper’s ass as well, punk.”
Jezebel
But even given Trump’s moderately disgusting track record with women, the fact is that a cadre of men have been shopping this Katie Johnson story around for nearly a year, while repeatedly refusing requests to interview the supposed victim. The facts speak less to a scandal and more, perhaps, to an attempt at a smear—one that finally, after months of clumsy maneuvering, is gaining speed.
Massive anti-Trumper Harvey Weinstein fixer lawyer Lisa Bloom was hired for 24 hours for her media connections to organize a press conference. She later admits that she never met or spoke with the woman.
In the article that contains the now infamous Trump quote about Epstein dating younger woman there are 16 quotes from Clinton and even Democrat icon Bill Richardson even calls Epstein a close friend.
Epstein: International Money Man of Mystery
In that same NY Magazine profile on Epstein they talk in depth about his closet and most trusted relationship with one woman in particular, Ghislaine Maxwell, she is said to have one on one dinners with the Clintons at and is so close to the Clintons that she was even at Chelsea Clintons "close family" wedding.
Ghislaine Maxwell is named in the Epstein case as his "madam" and the person whose job was to procure underage girls for him. She paid a multimillion settlement in 2015 to a victim and in another new court filing in April she is accused of helping rape a pair of teen sisters, one of them only 15.]
(1996) The Secret History of Jeffrey Epstein's New York Townhouse
For reasons that have never been explained, Wexner appears to have made a gift of the house to Epstein, transferring title for the cost of $0 around 1996. The New York Times reports the property was formally transferred in 2011 from a trust controlled by Wexner and Epstein to a Virgin Islands-based entity controlled by Epstein; Wexner, meanwhile, told the Times through a spokeswoman that he "severed ties" with Epstein a decade ago.
After Robert Maxwell’s death, Trump apparently kept in touch with Ghislaine, and was spotted chatting with her at Ford Model’s 50th Anniversary Party, which the article insinuates Trump crashed:
NY Daily News - October 31, 1997:
Pictured together are Donald Trump and Ghislaine Maxwell, as she “tries to get Donald Trump to focus on the conversation as models saunter by.” “Trump was able to feast his eyes on the likes of Ione Skye, Amanda de Cadet, Christie Brinkley, Elaine Irwin Mellencamp, VH1 model-of-the-year Karen Elson, and Dutch treat Daniela Van Graas. But rest easy, model mothers: The developer walked out with only a Travel & Leisure goodie bag.”
(1998) Jeffrey Epstein boasted that he played matchmaker for Donald and Melania Trump, report says
Donald and Melania Trump often have told the story about how they met at a Manhattan nightclub during New York Fashion Week in 1998.Jeffrey Epstein has never figured into this origin story — but the financier and former Trump friend has tried to take credit for this historical encounter between the future president and first lady.The New York Times, reporting on Trump’s long and difficult friendship with the newly jailed accused sex trafficker, said that Epstein was very eager to play up his connections to Trump after the 2016 election. One way Epstein did this was by “claiming that he was the one who introduced Trump to his third wife,” the Times reported....In Donald and Melania Trump’s version of how they met, they give credit to another person for their introduction: modeling agent Paolo Zampolli. The agent threw the party at the Kit Cat Club, where the then-celebrity real estate mogul spotted a beautiful 28-year-old model from Slovenia named Melania Knauss. At the time, Trump was still married, though separated from his second wife, Marla Maples. He also was on a date with another woman....Melania called, they went on a date, Donald soon got his divorce from Maples, and the two eventually married in 2005.If Epstein made claims that he somehow brought Donald and Melania Trump together, he could argue that the timing made sense.From the 1980s through the early 2000s, Trump and Epstein were Palm Beach neighbors and Manhattan high-flyers who shared an an appreciation for wealth and for being seen together at fabulous parties, especially if beautiful women were present, according to the New York Times and other publications.“I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy,” Trump famously told New York magazine in 2002. [Note: If true, this means they'd been friends since at least 1987.] “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
Trump would divorce Marla Maples in 1999:
(1999) The Untold Story of Trump Model Management (Part 1):
[Trump] would also go on to unceremoniously dump Marla Maples, his long suffering mistress having become his reluctant second bride, and shut her down with legal arrangements that both forbade her from saying a negative word about him in public for all time, and ensured she got next to nothing in spousal/child support. Maples agreed to this despite the fact that she had already raised their daughter Tiffany almost entirely on her own. In fact until his presidential run Trump had not shown a modicum of fatherly interest in her life aside from the bizarre speculation-when she was merely a baby-about her future breast size and compliments of her 1 year old legs on Lifestyles of the RIch and Famous. Over a decade later, in one of his few public acknowledgements of her existence, he would smirk as he admitted to Howard Stern that he had urged Marla to abort her.
Palm Beach Daily News - June 13, 1999 : Reports that Avenue Magazine lists both Jeffrey Epstein (“rich guy”) and “Mar-A-Lago’s own” Donald Trump as among the 157 most eligible bachelors.
According to Mother Jones:
(1999) Former Models for Donald Trump’s Agency Say They Violated Immigration Rules and Worked Illegally. “It’s like modern-day slavery.
Founded in 1999, Trump Model Management “has risen to the top of the fashion market,” boasts the Trump Organization’s website, and has a name “that symbolizes success.” According to a financial disclosure filed by his campaign in May, Donald Trump earned nearly $2 million from the company, in which he holds an 85 percent stake. Meanwhile, some former Trump models say they barely made any money working for the agency because of the high fees for rent and other expenses that were charged by the company. ...Each of the three former Trump models said she arrived in New York with dreams of making it big in one of the world’s most competitive fashion markets. But without work visas, they lived in constant fear of getting caught. “I was pretty on edge most of the time I was there,” Anna said of the three months in 2009 she spent in New York working for Trump’s agency.“I was there illegally,” she said. “A sitting duck.”According to three immigration lawyers consulted by Mother Jones, even unpaid employment is against the law for foreign nationals who do not have a work visa. “If the US company is benefiting from that person, that’s work,” explained Anastasia Tonello, global head of the US immigration team at Laura Devine Attorneys in New York. These rules for immigrants are in place to “protect them from being exploited,” she said. “That US company shouldn’t be making money off you.”Two of the former Trump models said Trump’s agency encouraged them to deceive customs officials about why they were visiting the United States and told them to lie on customs forms about where they intended to live. Anna said she received a specific instruction from a Trump agency representative: “If they ask you any questions, you’re just here for meetings.”...Kate, who worked for Trump Model Management in 2004, marveled at how her former boss has recently branded himself as an anti-illegal-immigration crusader on the campaign trail. “He doesn’t want to let anyone into the US anymore,” she said. “Meanwhile, behind everyone’s back, he’s bringing in all of these girls from all over the world and they’re working illegally.”...We’re herded into these small spaces,” Kate said. “The apartment was like a sweatshop.”Trump Model Management recruited models as young as 14. “I was by far the oldest in the house at the ripe old age of 18,” Anna said. “The bathroom always smelled like burned hair. I will never forget the place!” She added, “I taught myself how to write, ‘Please clean up after yourself’ in Russian.”
According to this website:
In the late ’90s, the media documented that Trump attended dinner parties at Epstein’s 71st Street mansion. In April 1999, UK tabloid The Mail reported that Donald Trump was among the guests at a dinner Epstein threw in honor of Prince Andrew:
Palm Beach Post - February 20, 2000: Donald Trump, now dating Melania Knauss, hosts a pro-am tennis tournament at Mar-A-Lago, which Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell attend. “One celebrity, however, was not so obvious. Even when Trump announced England’s Prince Andrew, many in the crowd doubted his presence. For one, he stayed in the background, introducing himself as Andrew York, and for two, he’s recently shed 20 pounds, making him a possible double for actor Rupert Everett.” Trump is pictured with Melania and Prince Andrew, while Epstein and Maxwell are photographed with Michael Bolton.
Palm Beach Post - November 16, 2004: Trump bids $41.35M to best two other bidders, one of whom was Jeffrey Epstein, for Abe Grosman’s estate.
[Note: Palm Beach Daily News - May 2, 2018: "Trump’s former estate: The story behind the $95-million mansion tear-down” — "The buyer in July 2008 was Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, who reportedly has never lived there and last year saw the end of a contentious, and stratospherically expensive, divorce from his ex-wife Elena, the terms of which were undisclosed. Property records give no clue as to whether there was an internal ownership change as a result of the divorce or any other factor.”]
In 2005, Trump married Melania Knauss:
(2005) Melania Trump's Life Before Marrying Donald Was Mysterious
She was born Melanija Knavs, (later westernized as "Melania Knauss," and ultimately, she took the last name of her husband after they wed in 2005), on April 26, 1970, in Novo Mesto, Slovenia — then part of Communist Yugoslavia. Her father, Viktor Knavs, now 73, was a car dealer, and her mother, Amalija, now 71, was a children's clothing designer, to according Biography.com. She grew up at home with her younger sister, and later learned that her father had a son from a previous relationship — her half-brother....After she signed with a modeling agency at 18, she dropped out of the university, according to Biography.com....Trump worked as a model in Milan and Paris before moving to New York in 1996. She worked with well-known photographers like Patrick Demarchelier and Helmut Newton, according to Biography.com, and graced the covers of magazines like Harper's Bazaar in Bulgaria and Vanity Fair in Italy. She also posed nude in GQ magazine in 2000.Not much is known about her modeling career between 1992 and 1996, when she moved to New York, per reporter Lauren Collins for The New Yorker. She went on to have reasonable success, and worked mostly in print....Melania Trump reportedly speaks Slovene, English, French, Serbian, and German. She is the first first lady to be born in a Communist nation and only the second to be born abroad......In a 2005 interview with The New York Post, Paolo Zampolli, the president of ID Models recalled: "It was unusual for her to go out; she never went to clubs or bars ... She never dated anyone in New York before Donald. She only went to movies by herself and to the gym."
(2002 - 2005) According to the Indictment[1] unsealed in Manhattan federal court:
From at least 2002 through at least 2005, JEFFREY EPSTEIN enticed and recruited, and caused to be enticed and recruited, dozens of minor girls to visit his mansion in New York, New York (the “New York Residence”), and his estate in Palm Beach, Florida (the “Palm Beach Residence”), to engage in sex acts with him, after which he would give the victims hundreds of dollars in cash. In order to maintain and increase his supply of victims, EPSTEIN also paid certain victims to recruit additional underage girls whom he could similarly abuse. In this way, EPSTEIN created a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit, often on a daily basis, in locations including New York and Palm Beach.EPSTEIN’s victims were as young as 14 at the time he abused them, and were, for various reasons, often particularly vulnerable to exploitation. Moreover, EPSTEIN knew that many of his victims were under 18, including because, in some instances, victims expressly told him they were underage.In creating and maintaining this network of minor victims in multiple states to abuse and exploit sexually, EPSTEIN worked with others, including employees and associates who facilitated his conduct by, among other things, contacting victims and scheduling their sexual encounters with EPSTEIN at the New York Residence and at the Palm Beach Residence.In both New York and Florida, EPSTEIN perpetuated this abuse in similar ways. Victims were initially recruited to provide “massages” to EPSTEIN, which became increasingly sexual in nature and would typically include one or more sex acts. EPSTEIN paid his victims hundreds of dollars in cash for each encounter.In particular, during encounters at the New York Residence, victims would be taken to a room where they would perform a massage on EPSTEIN, during which EPSTEIN would frequently escalate the nature and scope of physical contact with his victims to include, among other things, sex acts such as groping and direct and indirect contact with the victims’ genitals. In connection with the encounters, EPSTEIN, or one of his employees or associates, typically paid each victim hundreds of dollars in cash. Once minor victims were recruited, EPSTEIN or his employees or associates would contact victims to schedule appointments for “massages.” As a result, many victims were abused by EPSTEIN on multiple subsequent occasions.To further enable him to abuse underage girls, EPSTEIN asked and enticed certain of his victims to recruit additional minor girls to perform “massages” and similarly engage in sex acts with EPSTEIN. When a victim would recruit another underage girl for EPSTEIN, he paid both the victim-recruiter and the new victim hundreds of dollars in cash. Through these victim-recruiters, EPSTEIN maintained a steady supply of new victims to exploit, and gained access to dozens of additional underage girls to abuse.
Jeffrey Epstein's Accusers Speak Out: "I Was Young, I Was Scared"
"I was young, I was scared, I knew these people were powerful," Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who was 16 when Epstein's ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell allegedly recruited and groomed her for sexual slavery, told the Miami Herald in 2018 as part of the newspaper's massive investigation of Epstein's misconduct. "I didn't know what would happen if I said ‘no.’ I didn't know what would happen if I reported them. That 16-year-old girl just let it happen."Giuffre had been working at Mar-a-Lago when Maxwell recruited her to be a masseuse for Epstein, and claims she was forced to have sex with his prominent associates, including attorney Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew, Duke of York. (Dershowitz and Prince Andrewhave both denied Giuffre’s allegations.) She said she was sent to Little Saint James, Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she alleges she participated in orgies with older men while underage....Courtney Wild, another survivor, said she met Epstein in 2002 when she was 14 and reportedly still had braces on her teeth. Like he did with many of the accusers, he first asked her to give him a massage in exchange for cash. Wild, who later helped recruit other girls for Epstein, said he liked girls who looked like her — white, very young, slender, and easy to manipulate."He told me he wanted them as young as I could find them," Wild told the Miami Herald in 2018. "If I had a girl to bring him at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, then that’s how many times I would go a day. He wanted as many girls as I could get him. It was never enough."...Sarah Ransome claims Epstein sex-trafficked her in 2006 and 2007 and that, like Giuffre, she was also forced to have sex with Epstein’s lawyer, Alan Dershowitz (which he has denied). "The news of my abuser's arrest today is a step in the right direction to finally hold Epstein accountable for his crimes and restore my faith that power and money can't triumph over justice," Ransome told CBS News.Wild and Michelle Licata, another accuser of Epstein, were in the courtroom on Monday during Epstein's arraignment hearing. Licata told Good Morning America that she cried when she saw the financier appear in court."I don't think anyone has been told the truth about what Jeffrey Epstein did," Licata told the Miami Herald in 2018. "He ruined my life and a lot of girls' lives. People need to know what he did and why he wasn't prosecuted, so it never happens again."
Palm Beach Post - July 24, 2006: Jeffrey Epstein arrested on solicitation charges and charged with a third degree misdemeanor.
Palm Beach Post - August 14, 2006: “Powerful Legal Team Stymies Detectives” — One of the first articles to go into charges against Epstein. Names his political contributions to Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, among others. Also includes Trump’s 2002 quote: “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it, Jeffrey enjoys his social life.” Alan Dershowitz uses the MySpace profiles of the alleged victims to discredit them.
(2007) It Sure Looks Like Jeffrey Epstein Was a Spy—But Whose?
In a report for the Daily Beast, Ward shed light on the Justice Department’s 2007 non-prosecution agreement with Epstein, that sweetest of sweet deals, since it got Epstein a laughably lenient sentence—for crimes which any normal person would have gone away for decades after admitting to.Alexander Acosta, the current U.S. Labor Secretary, is in the hot seat, since a dozen years ago he was the U.S. Attorney for South Florida who cut that deal with Epstein. Ward explained the background of that deal, which is now a noose for Acosta. Specifically, she elaborated that the Epstein issue came up when Acosta was appointed to the cabinet by President Donald Trump. Ward writes:*He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)*Wait, what?So, Acosta, according to himself, backed off on prosecuting Epstein back in 2007, despite the possession of ample evidence proving his guilt, because he “belonged to intelligence.” Whose intelligence, exactly? is the first of many questions that arise here.This claim was met with an appropriate degree of skepticism, and Acosta had a chance to explain what he meant in a press conference this afternoon. On camera, Acosta maintained that he did the best he could with that case, while admitting that it hardly looks like a fair punishment now.The intelligence issue came up, and Acosta’s response was bizarre. He punted on setting the record straight, instead proffering this strange word salad when asked about Ward’s reporting:So there has been reporting to that effect and let me say, there’s been reporting to a lot of effects in this case, not just now but over the years and, again, I would hesitant to take this reporting as fact. This was a case that was brought by our office, it was brought based on the facts and I look at the reporting and others, I can’t address it directly because of our guidelines, but I can tell you that a lot of reporting is going down rabbit holes.To anyone acquainted with our nation’s capital, that’s a non-denial denial of an epic kind. Given the chance to refute Ward’s report, specifically that the Epstein case involved intelligence matters, Acosta did nothing of the sort. Indeed, he functionally admitted that it’s true.What then can we conclude at this point? It appears that Jeffrey Epstein was involved in intelligence work, of some kind, for someone—and it probably wasn’t American intelligence either. The U.S. Intelligence Community is lenient about the private habits of high-value agents or informants, but they won’t countenance running sex trafficking rings for minors on American soil, for years. While it’s plausible that Epstein was sharing some information with the FBI—many criminals do so to buy themselves some insurance—it’s implausible that he was mainly working for the Americans.
(2019) The Secret History of Jeffrey Epstein's New York Townhouse
In addition to “hundreds—and perhaps thousands—of sexually suggestive photographs of fully- or partially-nude females,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller revealed in a filing this week that the house also contained a massage table with sex toys and lubricant.
(07/08/19) Jeffrey Epstein had ‘vast trove of lewd’ photos of girls: Prosecutors
Federal agents who searched Epstein’s $77 million Upper East Side townhouse in Manhattan also found “in a locked safe ... compact discs with hand-written labels including the following: ‘Young [Name] + [Name],’ ‘Misc nudes 1,’ and ‘Girl pics nudes,’ ” according to a new court filing in Epstein’s case.Prosecutors said Epstein, a 66-year-old former friend of both President Donald Trump and ex-President Bill Clinton, represented both an “extreme flight risk,” and an “acute danger” to the public if he is freed on bail.“The defendant, a registered sex offender, is not reformed, he is not chastened, he is not repentant; rather, he is a continuing danger to the community and an individual who faces devastating evidence supporting deeply serious charges,” prosecutors from the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York wrote in their filing.Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to procuring a person under 18 for prostitution and felony solicitation of prostitution, according to his plea agreement on charges brought in Florida.He is accused in a new indictment unsealed Monday of trafficking “dozens” of minor girls, some of them as young as 14 years old, from 2002 to 2005. The indictment accuses him of having the girls brought to him to sexually abuse in his New York and Florida mansions, and then paying each of the girls hundreds of dollars.
I hope this insanely long post gives more detail into what might possibly be going on. While a few of the more conspiracy minded links might ring untrue to most of you, I wanted to include them in part because of how strange this story might be. Trump and Epstein have known each other for a very long time. The sources of their money still aren't clear, and they both have numerous links to more than a few shady characters. To wrap up with the quote from the original article:
Who are the suspects then? It seems awfully coincidental that Epstein’s best pal and business partner for decades has been Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and daughter of the late Robert Maxwell, the media mogul who died under mysterious circumstances in 1991. Something of a Bond villain turned real life, Maxwell loved the limelight, despite being a swindler and a spy. British counterintelligence assessed that Maxwell was working for the KGB, while pervasive allegations that he was working for Mossad too are equally plausible.Since the lines between Russian intelligence, Israeli intelligence and organized crime can get remarkably blurry in practice, as I’ve explained previously, assessing whom Epstein’s been working for may prove difficult to answer with any precision. But we have a suspect list to start asking questions.What’s not in doubt is that a sex trafficking ring centered on minors, which involved numerous global VIPs in compromising situations, would be of high interest to quite a few intelligence services. The Epstein saga seems certain to get even more unpleasant and interesting.
End. [I'm actually working on a Part 4 to follow this up with a little more current info]

2019.05.20 22:26 Ainsoph777 Father Felix Morlion of Pro Deo, the money launderer extraordinaire

Catholic Priests also act as lobbyists and can attract billions of dollars to covert intelligence projects. Witness Father Felix Morlion, a Belgian Dominican priest who founded the Catholic intelligence organization Pro Deo. The devout Catholic William “Wild Bill” Donovan made a pact with Father Felix Morlion to merge their intelligence apparatus’s together. When the Nazis took control of western Europe, Donovan helped Morlion move his propaganda operations from Lisbon to New York.
Avro Manhattan in his 1985 book Murder in the Vatican briefly mentions this relationship. “During World War II, in July 1944, for instance, Pope Pius XII decorated General William Donovan with the Grand Cross of the Order of St. Sylvester, a reward given only to 100 other men, 'who by outstanding deed...championed the Church.' The significance of the reward was in the fact that Donovan had served as a chief of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the wartime predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency, or CIA. Early in the war, in 1941, Donovan had already forged an alliance with the founder of a Catholic intelligence agency, called Pro Deo (Felix Morlion) . The two agencies collaborated during and after the war, to such an extent that eventually they amalgamated. This resulted in the de facto integration of the CIA and of the Vatican intelligence, into a global USA-Vatican apparatus, whose operations now encompassed the globe. The amalgamation operated in favour of the advancement of the Catholic Church in the political fields, at home and abroad. And indeed, in joint USA-Vatican promotion of their respective objectives. It helped in the promotion of Presidential candidates in the USA, and in the promotion of potential papal candidates in the Vatican. The Vatican-CIA spying operations have assessed both Presidents and Popes, during the past three decades, and acted accordingly.” https://archive.org/details/MurderInTheVatican


Father Morlion’s financial intrigues are shown in a declassified letter of the Inter-American Development Bank (The bank of the Organization of American States (OAS)), dated April 11th 1966. The letter is from Grayton Upton, an executive vice President of the Bank, to Walter Rostow, special assistant to the Jesuit educated U.S. President Lyndon Johnson. The subject heading on the letter is revealing in itself: “Father Morlion and Program, of Catholic Church for Indoctrination of Latin American Priests in Divulgation of Principles of U.S. Free Enterprise System.”
Parts of Grayton Upton’s letter to Walter Rostow include: “You will recollect the lunch here at the Bank a few weeks ago with Father Morlion. I now enclose a description of what he is doing. I personally consider this matter of the utmost importance to U.S. Policy makers for Latin America, and ask you to give it the most serious study. I first met Father Morlion at the Caracas meeting of CICYP last year. There he gave a short talk in which he said, in effect, that after a year or so of letting the priesthood in Latin America follow their own ideas with respect to economics (and politics) the Pope had decided to make a major effort to indoctrinate them in the concepts of the free enterprise system and to insist that they take an active role in teaching these con- cepts. The chief mechanism for this is the International University for Social Studies Pro Deo in Rome, which I understand must in the future be attended by any Latin American Priest before he rises to a higher level in the Catholic hierarchy. In addition the various economic and social directives which will be issued to the Church in Latin America.”
Continuing “In effect what Father Morlion now wishes to obtain is the following: 1. ) A serious review of, and orientation in, this whole effort by the U.S. Government (I understand that Ambassador Reinhardt is well informed on the matter.) 2. ) The strong moral backing of the U.S. Government, in a discreet fashion, of this effort. In this respect, as a first step, he wants to arrange a lunch in which you both, and hopefully Lincoln Gordon, would be present, with as many of the U.S. Directors as possible, where you would indicate the moral support of the U.S. Government for this effort - a support which would hopefully contribute towards substantial private contributions from U.S. business. 3. ) An investigation of the possibility of financial support for this effort by the U.S. Government through an appropriate agency”.
The banker Grayton Upton notes:
“For obvious reasons, efforts have been made to date to give no publicity to the program” and says in conclusion “PS: I understand that commitments have already been received for contributions from business of $250M (250 Million)and that Father Morlion expects this to be increased to $1MM (1 Billion) in the next few weeks.”

Father Felix Morlion sent Grayton Upton a correspondence (April 6th, 1966) five days previous the letter quoted above from Upton to Walter Rostow:
“Mr. Grayton Upton
Executive Vice President
Inter-American Development Bank
808 17th Street
Washington, D. C.
Dear Friend,

Here with the second draft improved on the basis of your suggestions. If you think the matter is sufficiently clear, you might send to Mr. Mann, Mr. Gordon, Mr. Rostov photostats of this so that they can tell you which day - they could eventually meet with a few business-men to conclude the first phase. Mr. Huerdemat or another assistant can eventually make some further improvements after phoning me. Before the middle of next week, I hope to tell you what first payments are made by some of the business leaders approached. As you can imagine, the Rome authorities are waiting for my return at the end of the month to start preparations in practice. I want to thank you again in the name of my high Roman friends for the inspiration you gave me in Caracas and the help so generously these days. We will need very much that you should repeat your speech of Caracas in one of our Rome symposia, possibly in the Autumn.
Totus tuus Pro Deo
Felix A. Morlion
Pres., Intern. Pro Deo University”

Jesuit trained Galo Plaza, former president of Ecuador, became Secretary general of the OAS (the parent organization of the Inter-American Development Bank), just 2 years after these above exchanges! : Here is a quick background on Galo Plaza : " Galo Plaza seemed perfect for restoring the OAS’s internal stability and improving the organization’s image. Rockefeller circles likened him to an “international troubleshooter.” Loyal to his roots as a major Ecuadorian landowner, lawyer for the United Fruit Company, and former student at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service (Jesuit), Galo Plaza could be counted on to maintain order within the organization while ensuring OAS support for CIA subversion of leftist-minded governments, not only in Ecuador (where the Velasco and Arosemena governments had both fallen to CIA-backed coups), but throughout Latin America. He had also endorsed the efforts of Nelson’s brother, John 3rd, to introduce birth control among Ecuador’s Indians through the Agency for International Development, a major new policy initiative. In addition, Galo Plaza could ensure the hemisphere wide transfer of rural development programs from Rockefeller's American International Association for Economic and Social Development (AIA) to the OAS. Most important, all this would give Rockefeller, through his influence on Galo Plaza, added weight not only in the OAS, but also in any White House deliberation over using the OAS "- Thy Will Be Done : The Conquest Of The Amazon, Nelson Rockefeller And Evangelism In The Age Of Oil ,Gerard Colby, Charlotte Dennett,

There is quite a bit of information on Father Felix Morlion's activities in Paul L. Williams book Operation Gladio : The Unholy Alliance between the Vatican, the CIA, and the Mafia, here are some excerpts : https://archive.org/details/OperationGladioTheUnholyAllianceBetweenTheVaticanTheCIAAndTheMafia/page/n1

" Fr. Felix Morlion, a Belgian priest, was affiliated with the Hyperion Language School and served to establish a branch of the “school” in Rome. During World War II, he had worked closely with Wild Bill Donovan and the Office of Strategic Services by creating Pro Deo a Catholic intelligence agency. When the Nazis seized control of Western Europe, Donovan relocated Morlion and his agency from Lisbon to New York. In 1945, the priest relocated to Rome, where he became the private emissary of Pope Pius XII and four of the pope’s successors. Throughout the 1960s, he remained a pivotal US intelligence agent, as witnessed by his key role in the Cuban Missile Crisis. At JFK’s urging, the Dominican priest had attended a strategic meeting in Andover, Massachusetts, where he established a communication channel between Moscow and Washington, mediated by Pope John XXIII, through whom messages were passed that brought an end to the threat of a nuclear war. In 1966, Morlion established, with funding from the CIA, the Pro Deo University which became Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali (the International University of Social Studies). As president of the new university, Morlion became a force in the formation of the right-wing policies of the Italian government. He also reportedly began recruiting of terrorists and assassins, including Moretti and Mehmet Ali Ağca (who attempted the hit on John Paul II) ...... In 1981, Count Alexandre de Marenches, the chief executive of the Service de Documentation Extérieure et de Contre-Espionnage (SDECE—the French secret service), served as the leader of Safari. Marenches was also a member of the SMOM, along with CIA director William Casey, Secretary of State Alexander Haig, Treasury Secretary William Simon, US ambassador to the Vatican William Wilson, Licio Gelli, Fr. Felix Morlion, and General Santovito of SISMI. Through the SMOM, Marenches became aware of John Paul II’s negotiations with the Kremlin and agreed that the Polish upstart had to be removed from the Holy Office ......... On April 18, Ağca, Çatlı, and Çelik traveled to Milan to meet with Bekir Çelenk at Stibam. They stayed at the Hotel Agosta, where Ağca registered under the name Faruk Ozgun. 21 From Milan, the trio made their way to Rome for a visit with Morlion to learn the layout of the priest’s apartment. On April 23, the day John Paul II was holding a private audience with CIA director William Casey, the Turks were provided with 9mm Browning Hi Power semiautomatic pistols with 13-round cartridge clips. They had received training on the use of these weapons by CIA agent Frank Terpil. The semiautomatics had been imported from East Germany by Horst Grillmayer, an arms dealer and operative of the BND. The place of origin was significant since the pistols, when found, would support the Bulgarian thesis...... Ağca was sentenced to life in prison with one year of solitary confinement. Despite this sentence, the prisoner soon received an ongoing stream of surprising visitors, including Francesco Pazienza, General Santovito, Fr. Morlion, members of the Camorra (including fellow prisoner Raffaelo Cutolo), agents from the CIA, and Monsignor Marcello Morgante, who represented Archbishop Marcinkus of the IOR. 34 The visits were choreographed by Pazienza to advance the Bulgarian thesis. During his daily visits, Pazienza, with Cutolo at his side, showed Ağca photographs of Antonov and several Bulgarians they wished to implicate in the assassination attempt. For hours, Ağca poured over the photos, memorizing distinctive characteristics and receiving information about the personal habits and tics of the fall guys... Another problem came from Ağca’s description of Antonov’s apartment. The distinctive features he described, including an ornate room divider between the living and dining areas, were not found in the Bulgarian’s living quarters. They were unique to the flat one floor below, which was occupied by Fr. Morlion. Ağca also mentioned meeting Antonov’s wife and children during the planning sessions in April. But the Bulgarian’s family was not in Rome at that time. They had returned to Bulgaria."

In declassified letters on the subject of Pro Deo, from C.D Jackson to Henry Luce it is seen that Father Felix Morlion was in communiucation with the fundraiser John Price Jones who raised over a billion dollars with his fundraising! " Morlion has also been talking to John Price Jones. When I explained to him that these fund~raising organizations did not actually solicit money themselves but acted as a professional secretariat for the appropriate individuals, Morlion assured me that this was different. and that they had an individual who had "done the Work for Fordham". I will find out more about this.

I posit that who had "done the work for Fordham" was Fordham educated Cardinal Francis Spellman. Quoting from Covert Action Information Bulletin #25, we see Spellman was reported to have been apart of the Pro Deo network.

" In the latter part of April 1948 the Romanian Timpul published an article, “The Vatican Espionage Service,” citedin the Soviet Journal New Times, No.31, 1948, at pp. 5, 6. As reported, the article indicated that, “In 1946 the Pope entrusted the Dominican friar [Felix A.] Morlion, a Belgian, with the reorganization of the Vatican intelligence service and its merger with the Jesuit espionage network. The central intelligence department of the Vatican is headed by Janssens, a general of the Jesuit Order. His deputy is Montini, the acting Vatican Secretary of State, and his assistants are Schmider, the administrative director of the central Jesuit espionage bureau, and Morlion, director of Centro d’informazione pro Deo. The central intelligence department is subdivided into branches and sections dealing with the various countries. One of the main branches is the socalled ‘special division’ which operates under the signboard of the Centro d’informazione pro Deo press agency. Similar divisions have been set up in the Centro d’informazione pro Deo units in all parts of the world. In New York the ‘special division’ is directed by Cardinal Spellman, in Innsbruck(Austria) by Regent, the rector of a Jesuit college, in Coblenz (Germany) by the Catholic priest Poelaert who is also director of the Catholic press agency. The branch in charge of espionage in Eastern and Southeastern Europe is supervised by Schmider and Preseren, the Jesuits’ chief expert on the Slav countries and adviser to the Vatican Secretary of State. In August 1966, Morlion approached H.L. Hunt for funding Vatican anti-Communist operations in Latin America. Hunt gave an interview to the British Guardian Weekly, February 27, 1969: “ ‘I was approached by Paolo Cardinal Marella, who said he spoke for the Pope and asked if I would supply members of my [20,000 member] Youth Freedom Speakers’ movement who spoke Spanish to be sent south [to Latin America] to engage in speech making and activities. I was told the Pope was thinking in terms of 11 million dollars a year support for the entire movement against communism in Spanish-speaking countries.’ . , . The project was now centered in New York, at the Asian Speakers Bureau, with the Free Pacific Association, Inc., on Riverside Drive [another front for the Rev. Moon’s Unification Church]. A key figure in this papal concern over Leftist threats to the Vatican’s greatest stronghold was the Rev. Felix A. Morlion, who was present at the original discussions.” Subsequently, Morlion emerged as a key figure in the “Bulgarian Connection” hoax when the fascist Grey Wolf Agca attempted to assassinate the Pope: It appears that Morlion lived in Rome directly below the apartment of theBulgarian Antonov, and was a possible source of Agea’s description of Antonov’s apartment. (See, II Mondo, April8, 1985; UEspresso, May 19, 1985.)”

the Jesuit Father Robert Graham confirmed that Morlion was a CIA agent. He was quoted in a Italian article from La Repubblica titled THE PIOUS FRIAR WORKING FOR THE CIA : " "Yes, Father Felix Morlion was from the CIA, he was a big point of reference for American intelligence". This was declared by Jesuit Father Robert Graham, one of the most qualified espionage history scholars. Father Graham added that Morlion, who died two years ago, was called "Cip" meaning "Pro-Deo Information Center". A spokesman for the CIA, Mark Mansfield, said instead that "I have not yet read the statements of the Italian Prime Minister. However, I repeat, it is not that we confirm or deny the fact that Morlion was our agent or the words of Andreotti or not , we simply do not comment "......" The prime minister claims that Agca was able to describe Antonov's apartment despite never setting foot in it, as it turned out to the trial. Therefore someone suggested to him how that house was made but the "cue" contained an error, the existence of a sliding door, a detail that, instead, was found only in the apartment below where Father Morlion lived.

By the 1940's Pro Deo had gotten some big backers behind it, quoting from a 1942 article titled The Pro Deo Movement by Anna Brady : " In the preparation and presentation of this material such notable authorities as Mr. Paul Anderson, Hon. Adolph Berle, Jr. , Sir Bernard Pares (nonCatholics) and M, Jacques Maritain, Miss Helen Iswolski, and Father Wilfrid Parsons, S.J. have participated. One of the important aspects of this work is that it allows the practical co- operation between Catholics and non-Catholics with the aim of making religious motives the strongest force in public life. For these subjects are treated not on the basis of dogma but according to the self-evident truths of natural law concerning the rights and duties of many in society. In this particular field of politics, the Pro Deo Movement holds that the spirit of denominational contro- versy must be kept out of the common concern for the reconstruction of temporal society on universal moral principles.

Pro Deo comes up in the Will H Hays Memoirs. Hayes was the first chairman of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America

: " The most significant experiences of the trip, especially in the light of later events, were my visits with Cardinal Pacelli and Count Galleazzi, which the latter graciously arranged. In two pleasant social calls Mrs. Hays and I found the cardinal most sympathetic and surprisingly well informed about America. He spoke excellent English. I also had another visit of at least two hours, during which he told me quite frankly the purpose of his visit to the United States—it had to do with the Pro Deo movement—noting that it was the first such official visit of a papal secretary of state. It was during these visits that I learned that a private audience with Pope Pius XI would be arranged for me soon after we reached Rome. " ......" In the midst of the conversation the Pope picked up a big loose-leaf book, two or three inches thick, lying on his table, and pushed it toward me. He explained that this volume of reports contained the series of original communiques sent out from the Comintern in Moscow to comrades and fellow travelers all over the world, and that one of the most emphatic orders was to "go out and get hold of the cinema of the world." This was a shocking revelation, backed as it was by such irrefutable evidence, and it sheds clear light on Communist efforts in sub- sequent years. When we had finished discussing motion pictures, the Holy Father went at once into the Pro Deo movement, of which Cardinal Pacelli had given me some account on our trip over. I was again impressed by the unity and the world sweep of the organized idea: that the Church was leading a movement of religionists everywhere, a united movement for God and the good in a concerted drive to oppose the spread of Communism."....." Finally reaching the secretary's room adjoining the private office of the Holy Father, we were greeted most cordially in scholarly English of a distinctly New England flavor by a man who seemed like an old friend. He repeated Count Galleazzi's suggestion about speaking freely and said he would see us when we came out. This was none other than our own Cardinal Spellman! A moment later we found ourselves in the presence of the Pope, seated at his broad desk placed in the middle of a small platform raised perhaps a foot above the floor. He was in the familiar white raiment, with the white cap; and his calm presence was a benediction. I was shown to a chair at the Holy Father's right, with Count Galleazzi at my right and Mrs. Hays still farther to the right, opposite the Holy Father." source : (https://archive.org/details/memoirs00hays/page/n0)

Morlion was very involved in the film industry himself, : " In an article published in 1954 in La Rivista del Cinematografo (the official Catholic film journal published by the Centro Cattolico Cinematografi co), the Belgian Jesuit Félix A. Morlion clarified the Catholic awareness of the power of cinema and its obligation to fight against Communists in the film industry. Morlion was heavily involved in Italian cinema in the post-war period. He contributed to the creation of the Cineforum (see the next section titled American Cinema and Catholic Press) and collaborated with film directors, such as Roberto Rossellini. His article (RC 1954: 5) not only listed all the Communist cinema initiatives—such as the creation of the ‘cinebrigate di informazione’ (Information Cine-Brigades), information groups which had the responsibility for strengthening the party by distributing audiovisual propaganda documents in large and small centres, but also highlighted the dissemination of those Christian values through the medium of cinema. As he Stated, ‘Christians have become aware of the exceptional psychological power of film in attracting the masses’ (Morlion 1954: 7) source : https://archive.org/details/RoutledgeAdvancesInFilmStudiesDanielaTreveriGennariPostWarItalianCinemaAmericanI

Here is an article that was done by Time on Father Morlion in 1953 (December 28th) titled For Managers And Molders : https://archive.org/details/formanagersandmolderstimedecember281953

Qquoting from National Catholic Educational Association Bulletin, Report of the Proceedings and Addresses - Fifty-Eighth Annual Meeting, Atlantic City, New Jersey, April 4-7, 1961, pg. 123
https://archive.org/details/nationalcatholic1961bett
" The concern of society regarding the education of future businessmen derives from the need for competent and prudent leadership in a civilization that is becoming increasingly more complex and technological. Society, understandably, is turning for leadership to the scientist and the businessman. With respect to the latter, the term economic-social manager is currently used. There is a demand for managers to be "leaders of the community for which they are in fact also co-responsible." Writing about this need, Father Felix A. Morlion, O.P., in "Government of Business and the Responsibility of the University," an address to the First International Conference on Training with Industry, states: "For history itself is now moving at an accelerated speed. In less than a hundred years economic progress has brought forth more social progress than the sum total of thousands of years. In the next fifty years atomic energy, electronic "brains," and automation will have created the material conditions for the full development of man all over the world. The question is now: Who will govern the enterprise which can create a higher standard of life, spiritual as well as material, for every man and woman on earth? The answer is obvious: not the political organizer but the economic-social manager." It is his firm conviction, therefore, that "industrial training requires university education.""

2018.04.12 16:47 PneumaticPtarmigan Ranking the Top 100 Women's Singles players at Grand Slams since 2000 [OC]

A few weeks ago, I wrote a thing on ranking the top 100 ATP players in Grand Slams in the 21st century. I mentioned then I was going to do a similar thing for the WTA, which I've now finished.
694 players have played in the main draw of a Women's Singles event in a Grand Slam since 2000 (compared to 739 in the mens.)
I was unsure on what ranking system to use, as like the ATP, the WTA rankings have changed significantly over the years with how they allocate points to Slams. In 2018, the WTA assigns points as 2000 (W), 1300 (F), 780 (SF), 430 (QF), 240 (R16), 130 (R32), 70 (R64), 10 (R128).
In the end, I decided to use the same point system as I used for the ATP. It's fairly similar anyway, and doing it this way allows for direct comparison between the two.
Winner - 2000
Final - 1200
Semi-Finals - 720
Quarter-Finals - 360
Round of 16 - 180
Round of 32 - 90
Round of 64 - 45
Round of 128 - 10
 
Top 100 Players
The top 100 WTA grand slam players of the 21st century, using this points system, are listed below. The number in brackets shows the number of tournaments entered during this time. Note that although a fair number of the players made their debut before 2000, this study only looks at the competitions after 2000.
 
1: Serena Williams - 61155 (59)
2: Venus Williams - 34255 (66)

Conclusion
Thank you for reading my ranking of the Women's Singles events at Grand Slams in the 21st century. Again, here is the equivalent for the Men's Singles that I posted a few weeks ago.
I believe my next project is going to be doing a similar thing for the Men's Doubles, Women's Doubles, and maybe eventually the Mixed Doubles. If I'm not bored of tennis by then, I may go back and do the Men's and Women's Singles back to the start of the Open Era.

2017.12.26 10:02 Halofreak1171 [EVENT] A change in language

Throughout the Danubian Confederation, most languages used, use latin script for writing. The major exemption from this is Bulgarian, which is the third largest spoken and written language in the entire Confederation. Due to this, there has been trouble in all levels of society when dealing with Bulgarian docuements, issues and communications. As such, after intense discussion by the Bulgarian lower parliament and than discussion on the high parliament, the PRP have pushed forward a new bill.
Known as the 'New writing bill of 2035', the bill states that by 2040, Bulgarian will no longer be written in cryllic and will instead be written in Latin. As to ensure the change isn't too quick or rushed, a timeline has been put in place.
Overall, this will be given a 1 billion dollar budget each year as to ensure it works and pushes Danubia to be closer internally.

2017.12.05 05:53 Halofreak1171 [ROLEPLAY] The need to go further beyond

High Minister Adrian Ţuţuianu walked through the streets of Bucharest, calmly watching his surroundings as people milled around the new capital of the Danubian Confederation. As he walked through the streets of the city, the sun shining brightly down upon him, he could hear snippets of conversations as people rushed past him.
To him, having to know be fluent in Hungarian and Rumanian, as well as knowing partial Bulgarian helped. The first two were quite common to hear within the capital of the confederation and the third came up now and than. He could hear all three as he walked down the streets towards the Palace of Parliament and a faint smile came to his face.
Despite many within the international community having their doubts about how strong the bond between countries inside Danubia would be, he was sure that those doubts would be set aside soon enough, once his plans were put through.
Turning the corner, he was greeted by a large amount of tourists who wre milling just outside the Palace of Parliament. Despite what many thought, Rumania itself had changed dramatically over the years and it was quite easy to see within Bucharest. Electrical cars drove by more often than petroleum cars, many people walked around with new smartphones and tablets conducting their daily buisness and conversations were spoke in many different langauges, all the way from the broken Bulgarian of a young Rumanian boy learning the langauge to the chatter of Asain tourists.
He walked up the stairs towards the Palace, noting that his security entourage, the minister's guards, were keeping pace a few steps behind him. Entering the building, he pushed through towards the High Parliament's meeting area and entered.
Within the room, the 10 Hungarian representatives and 14 Rumanian representatives were planning away at reforms and proposals which were meant to increase the unity of Danubian nations. Both Hungarian and Rumanian could be heard as conversations were spoken in either.
Walking towards the minister of internal relations, Carmen Daniela Dan, he was stopped by a familiar face. Klaus Iohannis, Prime Minister of the Lower Rumanian parliament grasped his hand and smiled. He spoke as they walked towards the centre planning table "Adrian, just wanted to ensure you that you have both the Rumanian and Hungarian parliaments go ahead to push these reforms through. Soros couldn't be here today, his age is catching up to him. You and I both know he isn't long for this world."
Adrian nodded "He's completed his part, should he go into the long sleep soon he deserves it." They reached the planning table and Adrian looked down at what was being talked about by those at the table.
Carmen spoke firmly in Rumanian, stating "We need to ensure that ethnic seats are mandatory within the Federation. Without them, we could end up like Austria-Hungary or Yugoslavia. We need to show we care about all people within the Confederation, not just those that make up a large part."
Borbély Nándor, one of the Hungarian Represntatives responded in Hungarian "I agree there but we also need to ensure that people start developing a Danubian Identity, not being stuck to their old nationalities. We need to also push for the national guards to be built up and to be quick in cementing the federation of Bulgaria and Moldova, as well as Transnistria."
Adrian nodded "So, when can we have these reforms out by? I'd rather have them out sooner than later, seeing how many international observers doubt the abilities of Danubia."
Carmen smiled. "Don't worry High Minister, it will all be taken care of. You just go and make sure that the federation of Bulgaria is all taken care of."
Adrian shook his head, a small grin appearing as he exited the room.

2017.08.13 19:02 FinnagainsAwake Why Women Had Better Sex Under Socialism - by Kristen R. Ghodsee (NYT) 12 Aug 2017

https://archive.is/7gqjV
When Americans think of Communism in Eastern Europe, they imagine travel restrictions, bleak landscapes of gray concrete, miserable men and women languishing in long lines to shop in empty markets and security services snooping on the private lives of citizens. While much of this was true, our collective stereotype of Communist life does not tell the whole story.
Some might remember that Eastern bloc women enjoyed many rights and privileges unknown in liberal democracies at the time, including major state investments in their education and training, their full incorporation into the labor force, generous maternity leave allowances and guaranteed free child care. But there’s one advantage that has received little attention: Women under Communism enjoyed more sexual pleasure.
A comparative sociological study of East and West Germans conducted after reunification in 1990 found that Eastern women had twice as many orgasms as Western women. Researchers marveled at this disparity in reported sexual satisfaction, especially since East German women suffered from the notorious double burden of formal employment and housework. In contrast, postwar West German women had stayed home and enjoyed all the labor-saving devices produced by the roaring capitalist economy. But they had less sex, and less satisfying sex, than women who had to line up for toilet paper.
How to account for this facet of life behind the Iron Curtain?
Consider Ana Durcheva from Bulgaria, who was 65 when I first met her in 2011. Having lived her first 43 years under Communism, she often complained that the new free market hindered Bulgarians’ ability to develop healthy amorous relationships.
“Sure, some things were bad during that time, but my life was full of romance,” she said. “After my divorce, I had my job and my salary, and I didn’t need a man to support me. I could do as I pleased.”
Ms. Durcheva was a single mother for many years, but she insisted that her life before 1989 was more gratifying than the stressful existence of her daughter, who was born in the late 1970s.
“All she does is work and work,” Ms. Durcheva told me in 2013, “and when she comes home at night she is too tired to be with her husband. But it doesn’t matter, because he is tired, too. They sit together in front of the television like zombies. When I was her age, we had much more fun.”
Last year in Jena, a university town in the former East Germany, I spoke with a recently married 30-something named Daniela Gruber. Her own mother — born and raised under the Communist system — was putting pressure on Ms. Gruber to have a baby.
“She doesn’t understand how much harder it is now — it was so easy for women before the Wall fell,” she told me, referring to the dismantling of the Berlin Wall in 1989. “They had kindergartens and crèches, and they could take maternity leave and have their jobs held for them. I work contract to contract, and don’t have time to get pregnant.”
This generational divide between daughters and mothers who reached adulthood on either side of 1989 supports the idea that women had more fulfilling lives during the Communist era. And they owed this quality of life, in part, to the fact that these regimes saw women’s emancipation as central to advanced “scientific socialist” societies, as they saw themselves.
Although East European Communist states needed women’s labor to realize their programs for rapid industrialization after World War II, the ideological foundation for women’s equality with men was laid by August Bebel and Friedrich Engels in the 19th century. After the Bolshevik takeover, Vladimir Lenin and Aleksandra Kollontai enabled a sexual revolution in the early years of the Soviet Union, with Kollontai arguing that love should be freed from economic considerations.
The Soviets extended full suffrage to women in 1917, three years before the United States did. The Bolsheviks also liberalized divorce laws, guaranteed reproductive rights and attempted to socialize domestic labor by investing in public laundries and people’s canteens. Women were mobilized into the labor force and became financially untethered from men.
In Central Asia in the 1920s, Russian women crusaded for the liberation of Muslim women. This top-down campaign met a violent backlash from local patriarchs not keen to see their sisters, wives and daughters freed from the shackles of tradition.
In the 1930s, Joseph Stalin reversed much of the Soviet Union’s early progress in women’s rights — outlawing abortion and promoting the nuclear family. However, the acute male labor shortages that followed World War II spurred other Communist governments to push forward with various programs for women’s emancipation, including state-sponsored research on the mysteries of female sexuality. Most Eastern European women could not travel to the West or read a free press, but scientific socialism did come with some benefits.
“As early as 1952, Czechoslovak sexologists started doing research on the female orgasm, and in 1961 they held a conference solely devoted to the topic,” Katerina Liskova, a professor at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic, told me. “They focused on the importance of the equality between men and women as a core component of female pleasure. Some even argued that men need to share housework and child rearing, otherwise there would be no good sex.”
Agnieszka Koscianska, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Warsaw, told me that pre-1989 Polish sexologists “didn’t limit sex to bodily experiences and stressed the importance of social and cultural contexts for sexual pleasure.” It was state socialism’s answer to work-life balance: “Even the best stimulation, they argued, will not help to achieve pleasure if a woman is stressed or overworked, worried about her future and financial stability.”
In all the Warsaw Pact countries, the imposition of one-party rule precipitated a sweeping overhaul of laws regarding the family. Communists invested major resources in the education and training of women and in guaranteeing their employment. State-run women’s committees sought to re-educate boys to accept girls as full comrades, and they attempted to convince their compatriots that male chauvinism was a remnant of the pre-socialist past.
Although gender wage disparities and labor segregation persisted, and although the Communists never fully reformed domestic patriarchy, Communist women enjoyed a degree of self-sufficiency that few Western women could have imagined. Eastern bloc women did not need to marry, or have sex, for money. The socialist state met their basic needs and countries such as Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and East Germany committed extra resources to support single mothers, divorcées and widows. With the noted exceptions of Romania, Albania and Stalin’s Soviet Union, most Eastern European countries guaranteed access to sex education and abortion. This reduced the social costs of accidental pregnancy and lowered the opportunity costs of becoming a mother.
Some liberal feminists in the West grudgingly acknowledged those accomplishments but were critical of the achievements of state socialism because they did not emerge from independent women’s movements, but represented a type of emancipation from above. Many academic feminists today celebrate choice but also embrace a cultural relativism dictated by the imperatives of intersectionality. Any top-down political program that seeks to impose a universalist set of values like equal rights for women is seriously out of fashion.
The result, unfortunately, has been that many of the advances of women’s liberation in the former Warsaw Pact countries have been lost or reversed. Ms. Durcheva’s adult daughter and the younger Ms. Gruber now struggle to resolve the work-life problems that Communist governments had once solved for their mothers.
“The Republic gave me my freedom,” Ms. Durcheva once told me, referring to the People’s Republic of Bulgaria. “Democracy took some of that freedom away.”
As for Ms. Gruber, she has no illusions about the brutalities of East German Communism; she just wishes “things weren’t so much harder now.”
Because they championed sexual equality — at work, at home and in the bedroom — and were willing to enforce it, Communist women who occupied positions in the state apparatus could be called cultural imperialists. But the liberation they imposed radically transformed millions of lives across the globe, including those of many women who still walk among us as the mothers and grandmothers of adults in the now democratic member states of the European Union. Those comrades’ insistence on government intervention may seem heavy-handed to our postmodern sensibilities, but sometimes necessary social change — which soon comes to be seen as the natural order of things — needs an emancipation proclamation from above.
Kristen R. Ghodsee, a professor of Russian and East European studies at the University of Pennsylvania, is the author of numerous books on European Communism and its aftermath, including, most recently, “Red Hangover: Legacies of 20th-Century Communism.”
This is an essay in the series Red Century, about the history and legacy of Communism 100 years after the Russian Revolution.
