The true reason why Pope Benedict retired from his position in 2013 — the first time it had been done in nearly 600 years — remains a mystery (though, the fact that Vatican City’s ATM transactions began working again right after his announcement leaves many to believe he was pressured into the decision). But now, an Archbishop who worked closely with Benedict is publishing a tell-all book that may expose several of Vatican City’s scandals, ones the Pope was investigating. Dr. Taylor Marshall, author of ‘Infiltration,’ joins Glenn to detail not only these dark secrets, but also how they represent a type of evil that is NOT exclusive to the Catholic Church. Rather, Dr. Marshall explains how this story relates to us ALL: ‘Ultimately, evil wants to take ownership and brand your mind and control your thoughts. And that's where all the tentacles are reaching.’
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Dr. Taylor Marshall is with us now.
The author of Infiltration.
The infiltration of the Catholic Church. The plot to destroy the church from within.
This is a universal story now. Doctor, welcome to the program. How are you?
TAYLOR: I'm great. Thanks for having me on, Glenn.
GLENN: You bet. So we follow your work a great deal because you talk about other things, other than Catholic things.
But I want to make sure people understand, right from the beginning.
We are not taking on the Catholic Church, and this is not a Catholic bash session.
TAYLOR: No. Not at all. And I consider myself a Catholic. I attend mass every day, sometimes more. I have a beautiful Catholic family. We have eight children.
TAYLOR: And I love Christ. I love -- I love the church.
And that -- that bothers me, that there's these wolves in sheep's clothing. In shepherd's clothing even, doing horrible things to children, to bank finances, to all kinds of scandals.
TAYLOR: And I think the answer is to just shine light on it, and expose it. So we can have true change. And get things back on track, the way we want them.
GLENN: And there will be a lot of Catholics that listen and will hear you, like Nancy Pelosi, who consider themselves Catholic. That will disagree, strongly with with some of the things that you're saying. But I think that's the point.
Because there is this kind of feeling among Catholics about Pope Francis. Is he a good guy? Is he a bad guy?
I don't know if we'll ever get to that question. But I want to talk about Pope Benedict. Because this was very bizarre, when Pope Benedict resigned.
I think it was the first time, right?
Where he resigned.
TAYLOR: Well, it's the first time in 597 years. So it's been a while. It's pretty rare.
GLENN: Yeah. Right.
And when he resigned, it seemed very odd. It was preceded by European banks, pulling the plug on the Vatican bank. Right?
TAYLOR: Yeah. That's correct. Well, actually if we go back a little bit more. A few months before the Vatican bank having a -- kind of a meltdown.
There was the butler of Pope Benedict. His name was Paulo HEP Gabrielli, and he was leaking documents to the press and to journalists. And no one knew how this was happening. And finally, he was caught.
He pled guilty. And he was sentenced to prison, in the Vatican. And Pope Benedict oddly pardoned him. And that led to the whole investigation, that was headed up by Benedict. A secret investigation. Three cardinals did it. They presented to him. The sources say one or two red binders, of all kinds of filth in it.
Bank scandals. There's rumored to be pictures of cardinals in drag, in those binders. All kinds of nasty things.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh.
TAYLOR: And that all happened in December of 2012.
And then January 1st of '13, the -- the Vatican museums cannot process money.
The ATM machines in Vatican City stopped working.
And shortly thereafter, we have the announcement of Pope Benedict, that he's going to resign. The very next day, all those banking problems were fixed. They were resolved. By the way, the night that Pope Benedict announced he was going to resign. That was the night that (?) which was a sign for a lot of people.
GLENN: So -- so this is right along the lines of what we're seeing in the Deep State in the United States.
We are seeing with World Economic Forum, which I know you are very well aware of.
Are you -- are you -- is there any evidence, that this banking thing was to put pressure on the pope, get out?
TAYLOR: I think so. And the reason for this. And you say Deep State. And I think we really need to. Everyone needs to put in their vote. (?) deep church. The same thing that is happening in state, is happening in the church. We can refer to Deep State and deep church.
GLENN: And it's not just the Catholic Church. These people have been working behind the scenes for years.
TAYLOR: Yes. And you have to remember that the Vatican is unique, in that the Vatican is its own nation. It's called a city state. It has its own sovereignty. Technical, Vatican (?) it's it's own micro country. And as its own micro country, it has its own bank. Now, I want (?) a mob boss. Your biggest problem, is what do you do with all this money?
GLENN: Is the bank.
TAYLOR: You have to launder. You have to get it into legit means and move it around, right?
And what if there were a bank on earth, that belonged to a micro nation, that was not regulated by the EU. That was not regulated or audited by anyone on the outside.
Well, there is that bank in the world. And that bank is called the Vatican bank. So err crony on earth wants a piece of that bank.
Because you can legitimatize legitimate money. That's why the Vatican (?) almost every five to ten years. Since the 1960s.
The temptation to use that Vatican bank is high. And the temptation for corrupt cardinals in the church, that led people to get their fingers in the pie. Is also very high. That's only one piece of this puzzle. But I think that helps people to understand why the Vatican bank is constantly plagued with scandals.
GLENN: Okay. So let me make sure I understand the good guy here. Benedict. Is it your thesis that Benedict was working to end all that corruption and expose it. And possibly his (?) was being used by Pope Benedict. To out all of this stuff.
And -- go ahead.
TAYLOR: Yeah. Those are questions that we're still trying to figure out. I want to be very careful not to say, Pope Benedict was the super saint mastermind playing (?) this is an old man, who is in his 80s. I mean, it's -- very few of us have had the experience of being old and tired and surrounded.
And so I don't think we could make it just as easy as the good guys and the bad guys here. But definitely Pope Benedict was doing investigations.
And he appointed a man who was becoming very famous in the last couple of years. Archbishop (?)
GLENN: I love him.
ADAM: Yeah, he's great. He's a good guy.
He appointed him, back in -- I think it was 2009. He appointed him, secretary general of the Vatican City.
And this is sort of a ruling body. And he wanted him to look into the financial accountability of the Vatican bank.
And as soon as he was hired by Benedict for this job, he found a -- a negative deficit of the equivalent of 10.5 million. And then found a surplus of random money that was in various bank accounts of 44 million. He did that in just 12 months. Viganò did. (?) which shows you that the people who were already in there, were playing fast and loose with accounting.
Viganò (?) some cardinals. I won't go into all the names. But if you want them, I can give them to you.
GLENN: No, no. That's all right.
TAYLOR: And he got in big trouble. So what did Benedict did? He took Viganò. (?) the apostolic, (?) the ambassador to America. Washington, DC. Now I want you toggle and do an audit on the American bishops (?) and the American Catholic Church. That's what Viganò did. (?) and guess, what he undercovered (?) archbishop of DC. Who was molesting children. Embezzling money. Just a wicked Judas of a man. Viganò (?) five years, pointing the finger at Francis for corruption.
So all these characters are woven together. It's a pretty small world, in the Vatican.
GLENN: So let me switch topics here and kind of go to what happened, what? Yesterday or the day before. Unprecedented. The pope writes a book. And it's held until after his death. And he just exposes some really nasty things. And I want to get into your thoughts on that. What did he say?
Why did he wait in and what is going to be the fallout (?) for everybody else in all of our churches that aren't Catholic?
Back in just a second. Annette writes in about her (?) the Quick Start program. I was completely out of pain in a week. I've been suffering from knee and foot pain.
I had a lot of trouble walking. But I don't anymore. I've been taking it for months now. And I can feel the difference if I miss a dose. Amen for that. Annette, thank you for writing in.
If you or somebody, you know, is (?) give Relief Factor a try. 70 percent of the people who try it, go on to order more, month after month. Kind of fit into the category of Annette. Try it. 19.95. It's a trial pack. Try it for three weeks.
ReliefFactor.com. Or 800-4-Relief. 800-4-Relief.
Feel the difference. Ten-second station ID.
So it was a tell-all memorandum with our. And it was -- (?) it was a book of really unexpected Revelations. And it came from the Vatican. It came from the archbishop. Who was the right-hand man of Pope Benedict.
And it was supposedly written by the two of them. I think?
Or Pope Benedict. And it exposes all of the things pope been ticket wanted to expose.
And it's some nasty exposé.
Never really done before.
Am I right?
TAYLOR: Yeah. As far as I know, it's never been done.
There was a rumor, that Pope Benedict was going to release his final spiritual testimony after he died. And after he died, it came out. Everybody said, it was a nothing burger. Kind of reminisced about his childhood and family. Then (?) I actually have an advanced English copy.
I don't know if he's official or not. I'll read you a section of it. This is Pope Benedict.
Quote, in several (?) were formed. Which acted more or less openly. And which clearly changed the atmosphere in seminaries. In a seminary in southern Germany, candidates for the priesthood, and candidates fort (?) lived together.
And it goes on. He talks about also the American bishops. And how they sort of lost their vision for the gospel. For assisting the poor. For preaching the truth. Drawing people to Jesus Christ.
And instead, kind of just became -- not in his words. But sort of the chaplains to the Democratic Party. You know, the woke agenda. The Great Reset.
And this kind of makes sense. I mean, if you're Satan, you want to be in the highest corridors of power.
And that has to do with both religion and politics.
And there was a woman aliened bella Dodd. Who in the '50s said (?) she was a communist operator. She had a big conversion. And she said, she had placed over a thousand communist men in the seminaries. That was back then.
So this kind of thing was happening. And it's -- it's just like we have a Deep State. This is the Deep Church.
GLENN: So Pope Francis recently came out and said, the devil is among us.
And he has talked about a great evil.
It sounds like this is what Benedict was also warning against.
But I don't think they see things the same way.
Or do they?
TAYLOR: Well, I liked your comment (?) evil. But they seem to be pointing at one another.
TAYLOR: I think that's -- I think your observation there was a good one. I think there's definitely a war in the Vatican. And this kind of goes back to the '60s. There was this countless. You mentioned in the video, there B (?) third secret of Fatima. In the 1960s, or the second (?) from 1962, to 1965, it was super optimistic. You know, this is the era of color TV. And moon landings and all this.
TAYLOR: And there's this idea, we need to make Christianity. We need to make Catholicism groovy.
GLENN: And that's exactly the right word too.
Because those kinds of churches are just as hip as groovy is. They work just as well.
TAYLOR: Yep. And so there's this idea, we can update and make things cool. So we'll change the liturgy. We'll change the hymns. We'll make things modern. And what we'll do is just give a face-lift to Catholicism, so it's not medieval.
And bells and ropes. And we'll just be really cool.
Well, there's been this battle for the past 60 years on whether that is an actual improvement. Or it's been detrimental.
And it goes hand in hand with the global political agenda.
Should wen on board. Should we be downplaying abortion? Downplaying gay marriage?
You know, and this has been the battle. And the lines are kind of drawn along that fault line.
And I think Benedict, the 16th, as a young man. Was a little bit liberal and more modern. As he aged, as he was a pope. He turned the wheel right. Francis has always been a South American liberation theology, radical, Jesuit. Modernist. And that's just who he is.
And he has -- if anything, he's only gotten more and more leftist, the longer he lives, and the longer he's pope.
GLENN: Go ahead. Go ahead. No, no, no. Go ahead.
TAYLOR: So by having these two catches. You see Pope Francis, for example, he's trying to ban the traditional Latin (?) the Gregorian chant. He doesn't likable the old stuff.
And he's very much (?) on board with like, the vaccine and the theology.
And the great reset.
And he sends representatives to Davos. I mean, this is his worldview. And so when he talks about the devil. I'm not so reason he's talking about the same person that Benedict is talking about.
GLENN: Right. So when I was at the Vatican, this is under Benedict. I had no idea why they did this. It was a surprise to me.
But I was allowed to go to the secret archives with the chief archivist. And the head of the university. Both of them were the -- you know, counselors to the pope, at the time.
And they talked about a war, in the Vatican. And it -- it was described to me, later by a cardinal, as really, truly a Civil War. And they were saying, it's the soul of the church. And we kind of hope Benedict wins. And it's not clear at all. It was shortly after that, that Benedict retired.
And it seemed like almost in retrospect, almost as if the cardinals knew, this could be a possibility. That he would either be killed. Or he would have to retire.
I would like to have you talk about the actual -- it's almost did a vast majority of codish. I hate to say that. But it's almost Da Vinci Code. There is a group inside. (?) how real is this. And does this play at all, into prophecies. Catholic prophecies about these days.
Back in just a second. If you want to hear more from Dr. Tailor marshal. Go to you get.com. (?) Dr. Tailor marshal. He has all kinds of videos up there. And he doesn't just talk about the Catholic Church.
He talks about pretty much everything we talk about here. Maria writes in about her dog's experience with Ruff Greens. She said, she loves this product. She said, her dog had really bad skin allergies. We tried recommending treatments. But nothing worked. Three days into the trial, we started noticing a difference. In -- in two weeks, the odor was gone from her fur. There was no more itching. Her red bumps were all gone. Definitely worth the price. This was something that was developed by naturopathic doctor Dennis black. You sprinkle it on your dog food. (?) probiotics. Antioxidants. You name it. If it's healthy for you and your dog. The right combination for your dog is there in Ruff Greens, most likely.
They are so confident that your dog will like it. But they don't want you to be out in money, in case your dog doesn't. They'll send you the first trial pack for free. You just pay for shipping. At RuffGreens.com/Beck. Just see if your dog likes it. If they do, feed it to them. Put it on their food. And just watch the difference in your dog over the coming months. First trial (?) 833-Glenn-33.

(OUT AT 9:28AM)
GLENN: Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. Today, we're talking to tailor marshal, author of infiltration. Also, host of the Dr. Tailor marshal podcast you can find on YouTube. He talks about (?) a lot of things.
But he is -- he is a very strong Catholic, and this week, we are talking to him about what Pope Benedict did after his death, just a book -- a book just came out. No one in America is talking about it.
And I don't know if anybody in Europe is really talking about it. But it is earth-shattering. And it's all about evil. And evil is becoming more and more clear. At least to me, it is. And before we go on to the war that is going on in the deep church, archbishop Viganò, (?) at one point here recently called out, George Soros, Klaus Schwab, and Bill Gates. And this is the guy who was calling out all the pedophiles, and the banking scandals. Why did he call those three out?
TAYLOR: Well, as time goes on, we see that the deep church and the Deep State, the puppet strings all lead back to the same fingers. So, of course, Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab. The usual suspects. Because you have to realize that the most powerful people in the Deep State, the most -- the billionaires, and the -- the technology giants. They have a strategy, not just for politics. But also for economics. They have a policy -- and they have a policy for religion.
I mean, all the great tyrants also have to control religion.
I mean, that has to be done. This is thought control. And the most powerful thoughts that people have. The powerful feelings they have, is almost always associated to their religion. To their faith. To their convictions.
And so this has to be controlled.
ADAM: And the biggest united religion on earth is Catholicism, with a very centralized nervous system in Vatican City. So, of course, they will go after that. And archbishop Viganò (?) who exposed corruption in the Vatican vein. Who worked in Washington, DC. He knows the Clintons. He knows the Obama's. He knows all these people. And he's met every single Catholic bishop in America. And all the cardinals in America.
He has the receipts. And so he's a in a very unique position, perhaps more than anyone alive. To have worked in the Vatican, in DC, and to see all these things at the time.
GLENN: He's very clear on good and evil. And he -- didn't he say this is a one world government, that is being built by those people in the WEF. And it's one world religion and everything else.
That's what he's really warning about, isn't he?
ADAM: Exactly (?) during the campaign. In fact, he even sent a message during one of the major rallies, that I read from the Supreme Court steps, on behalf of archbishop Viganò. (?)
GLENN: Would you please put a good word for me? I've tried to have him on a billion times. We don't get a response. I would love to do a podcast with him.
TAYLOR: Well, he's in hiding.
GLENN: Well,ening --
TAYLOR: For obvious reasons. But, yes.
TAYLOR: We can work something out. But he is really one of the most dynamic voices on earth, in particular within for -- for Catholics. Or you could say Christians, who have just had enough. You know, who have just had enough of basically politicizing our faith, so that the likes of Bill Gates can grab up more land. And push more experimental medical procedures on the world.
GLENN: So day before so let me -- let me ask you the -- the third secret of Fatima. And if people don't know what Fatima is, it's -- it's a miracle that happened, what?
Right before the --
GLENN: Right before the war. And the Virgin Mary came. And appeared to the children. And said, look, there's going to be a war. It's Russia that's behind a lot of this error.
And Russia needs to be turned over to the Lord.
And their hearts changed. And gave, I think three secrets.
And the last one was kept secret
And it's confusing now, because it supposedly has been revealed.
But then I think Benedict hinted that it really hadn't been revealed.
But it talks about the last black pope, if you will. And I don't mean it as color of your race. I mean as a dark figure, that he's on the wrong side.
Is that true? And do you and others, does very good no believe this is those times? (?) or we're approaching them?
TAYLOR: Yes. I think that the Fatima mystery, and the three secrets of Fatima. In my book, infiltration, it's the very first part of the book. I won't get into all the details. People can look into it, themselves. There's tons of literature on it. (?) maybe since Moses crossing the Red Sea. I know that sounds sensational (?) that was witnessed in a place, a little tiny place.
Fatima, Portugal. And, yes, there were three secrets that were revealed. Just quickly, (?) and people were going there.
Don't listen to people who tell you, there's no hell. Number two, Russia needs to be consecrated.
Russia, the errors of Russia, are about to spill into the entire world. Over the -- this was documented in 1917.
TAYLOR: And what did we see? We saw the rise of communism, (?)
GLENN: National socialism. All of it.
TAYLOR: Cuba. Latin America. What happened in 1917? Either these little kids were just drilling it, you know -- politicians who can see the next hundred years. Or this was really a message from heaven. Then the third secret was written down.
And was supposed to be opened and read to the world, in 1960. Sixty. It's a special message to the world.
And everyone. Even the New York Times was publishing, orientation my goodness, we're go B to have the secret of Fatima. (?) it was a really big deal.
A lot of people forgot it. It was a really big deal.
GLENN: Nobody (?) seemed to release. And you're like, why?
Why hasn't it been released?
TAYLOR: And the secret, talking about a world war, and a worst one after that. Everything that was revealed. Did come after it. So everybody wanted to come in the envelope, what in the envelope (?) John the 23rd opens it. Reads it. Puts it back in. And says, this is not for our time. I'm not releasing it to the world.
And everyone was ticked. Everyone was upset. Exo. This is perhaps the greatest prophetic thing that happened in the last 700 years. And you won't reveal it.
So that was 1959. 1960.
Then something was released in the (?) allegedly the third secret.
As soon as it came out, people questioned it. Because it describes a vision of what seems ton some kind of post-war dystopia. But it doesn't explain what it is, or what should happen. Or what we should do. Like, there's the explanation part that we had in the first and second secret. Is missing in the third secret. This has led to a unanimous agreement by scholars, even people who weren't Catholic. What they gave us in the year 2000, was maybe part of it. But it wasn't the full secret. And why don't we have the full secret. There's people who have speculated. There are people who read it, (?) it has to do with the bad counsel.
With a bad mass.
GLENN: And with -- and with a meeting in Russia, that the pope will go to Russia.
And not to consecrate Russia.
TAYLOR: Yeah. It's hard to know. Because we don't have it. We just (?) kind of get drippings of what it could be. But we do know that Russia is at the center of this whole thing. And we're still living in 2023.
It would be great to get the full secret. To know what it actually says. But my worry is that they put it into a filing cabinet, called trash can. And we may never see it.
That's my concern.
GLENN: I -- I -- Dr. Marshall, we could talk for a long time. I have so many questions for you. But we're almost out of time.
Tell me how this relates.
What's going on in the Catholic Church. Which is a real, true Civil War for the soul.
Just like we're battling for the soul of America in the country. And the West. Everything is being split.
How does this relate? What's going on in being exposed in the Vatican to all of our other churches?
TAYLOR: Well, I think at his it goes back to thought control. They want to control our actions. They want to control our words. You know, if you say certain things, you will be canceled. Just look at what Elon Musk was exposed to in the last several months. And then they ultimately want to control your thoughts.
People want to (?) 666 on the forehead. All of that. Think of the significance of the forehad he. I mean, that is branding. The sign of the devil, upon your mind.
You know, the -- yes. There very much could be a physical manifestation of a sign on your forehead. But ultimately, evil wants to take ownership, and brand your mind. And control your thoughts. And that's where all the tentacles are reaching. This complete thought control.
You will own nothing. You will have nothing of your own. You won't even have your thoughts. And allegedly, we will be happy. Is what they tell us, at the great reset.
GLENN: It's actually -- it's actually in one of their videos. That even your thoughts. Your dreams will be known. So you really will not control your thoughts or be in charge of your thoughts. You will not know which are your thoughts or their thoughts.
It's really spooky.
TAYLOR: That's ultimately, the mark of the beast there. You have 666 on your forehead, literally. Whether it's a contraption. Whether it's a tattoo. We debate that all day. But the significance of that, is that your mind belongs to evil.
GLENN: And is there any doubt in your mind, that this is actual evil. Like we probably haven't seen since maybe the 1930s and '40s? Any doubt in your mind?
TAYLOR: There's no doubt in my mind. No doubt.
The powers. Back then, they have machine guns and planes. Now we have technology.
Now we -- people can spy on you through your phone.
They can control so much. And that hasn't yet been tested by tyrants. And so now we're starting to experience it.
GLENN: Thank you so much, doctor. I hope we get a chance to meet soon. I would love to get you on (?) and things you know about that, that I might have missed. You spread a lot of good, in the world, with your -- with your podcast. So thank you so much. At which time likewise.
GLENN: YouTube (?) really, really reasonable.
Well thought out man. His name is Dr. Tailor marshal. He is the author of the book (?) Taylor marshal podcast. You can find his podcast at YouTube.com/Dr. Taylor marshal.
