Jack's desire to expose the truth about the sedevacantists has him posting information on various web sites.

Without significant commentary I would ask you to "follow the money." https://allfamousbirthday.com/mark-pivarunas/
Look at the section on his personal net worth. Does that seem about right for a guy devoted to a life of poverty?
The Catholic Church bases everything it teaches, all of the dogmas and decrees, on the divine revelation of Our Saviour Jesus Christ. The Church puts it all out there from the written record of Sacred Scripture and the verbal teachings from Sacred Tradition. There is NO secret knowledge.
How many pretenders have come forward over the years having discovered new "secret" knowledge? We could call this "gnosticism." Mohammed invented Islam based on this. Martin Luther discovered his truth about scripture this way. L Ron Hubbard developed his version, Mormons, Asian religions, etc all have their version of secret knowledge.
Did you know the sedevacantists also have their version? In fact the entire sedevacantist circular reasoning is based on their discovery of secret knowledge showing them that the Catholic Church as we know it is gone and they are the only link to Christ. They also have secret knowledge that at some future time one of their bishops will be miraculously appointed as the true pope and once again rule the Church. But what Church? The one they abandoned? Only through circular sedevacantist logic can schismatics who have deserted the barque of Peter suddenly find it reformed and have Our Divine Saviour break the apostolic succession He established and appoint one of their clergy (who have never recognized the validity of the Church heirarchy after Pius XII) as the successor of St. Peter. Gnostic knowledge? Makes one wonder....
Compare the education of Traditional Catholic Priests and you find a significant difference. Groups such as The Fraternity of St Peter, Institute of Christ The King Sovereign Priest, or even the schismatic Society of St Pius X all require college degrees and real world life experience before entering their seminaries. Their programs are rigorous and many men find they are not capable of completing and being ordained to the sacred priesthood.
The much maligned modern/Novus Ordo seminaries require a minimum of a high school degree or GED. They require a minimum of 8 years of post-secondary education prior to ordination. Many of their ordinands go on to very advanced degrees in Theology, Canon Law, etc.
Using the schismatic sedevacantist group CMRI as an example; what is their program of study like? No degree, diploma, or GED is required. A young man can enter their "seminary" before he is of the age of consent. Formal training basically consists of learning the latin words of the Mass. Most can pick that up in less than 6 months. Anything else of importance can be learned later (out in the mission fields). For all intents and purposes one could say that if he has a pulse, can regurgitate a few sedevacantist talking points, and is a good enough actor to put on a show, the CMRI wants him as a priest in their religion. Even the current leader of the CMRI has no formal training in any field of Catholic study. He admits to entering their seminary at 15 and no evidence has been presented that he actually completed a legitimate high school or GED program. His only training was under the pedophile cult leader Schukardt who showed him how to lure naive and unsuspecting people of good will and grift their money and property.
Question: Concerning the rabid attacks on the TLM by 'Pope Francis' and with his latest letter utterly trying to rub-out the TLM in the Church, why has he never even spoken against the "services" by CMRI or any other sedevacantist outfit?
Answer: Because they're already outside the Church Christ founded and therefore their religious "services" are baseless and invalid. No need to go after them. OTHERWISE bergoglio WOULD go after them as he has legitimate orders, priests, and bishops.
Comment: Think about it. This shows the obvious invalidity of CMRI and the other sedevacantists. Anglicans can have a very elaborate and ornate TLM type services. Even lutherans have some kind of TLM occasionally.
Bottom line is; if the priests performing the TLM are not real Catholic Priests, then there is no need to go after them.
(Please see our segment on "The Old Catholics" elsewhere on this site regariding how Francis observes and works with fake catholics.)
A notorious ring of money launderers, pedophiles, and occult child sacrificers existed in Omaha, Nebraska. What became known as the "Franklin Affair" is exposed in the book noted above.
A person named (redacted) does financial work for satanic temple of Nebraska. Is this the same (redacted) who does financial services for Mark Pivarunas?
Is (redacted) an expert at hiding financial resources and laundering funds through shell corporations?
Was the choice of Omaha, Nebraska for a major CMRI headquarters more than just a convenient location?
Satanic black masses use fake priests to mock the Catholic Mass. Could there be a connection?
When satan possesses a person's mind, they appear to be under a spell. Some people have commented that some people who regularly associate with the CMRI appear to have their minds shut off from rational thought and appear to be under a spell. Coincidence?
"Calling Mark Pivarunas a Catholic Bishop is like calling Jesse James a banker."
Sedevacantists are masters of circular logic.
A good con always includes some truth along with the illusion and distortions. Just like a schismatic group can lure Catholics of good will out of the Church.
