(CNSNews.com) - Pope Francis told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica on Thursday that the United States of America--and Russia, China, North Korea and Bashar al Assad's Syria--have "a distorted vision of the world"--("una visione distorta del mondo," as reportetd in Italian by La Repubblica).
The pope made the observation in an interview with La Repubblica reporter Eugenio Scalfari.
"Last Thursday, I got a call from Pope Francis," Scalfari reported. "It was about noon, and I was at the newspaper when my phone rang."
He said the pope wanted to see him at four that afternoon, according to a Google translation of the Italian report.
"Pope Francis told me to be very concerned about the meeting of the G20," Scalfari wrote.
"I am afraid there are very dangerous alliances between powers who have a distorted view of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Assad in the war in Syria," the pope said.

This from a catholic priest who lives in a palace surrounded by priceless works of art, and mercenary bodyguards watching the exits. Interesting point of perspective there.

[American Thinker] This was a week of startling contrasts. The President reasserted (against a decades-long leftist attack on it) the significant achievements of Western civilization and the need to vigorously defend it. His speech prefaced the G20 meeting in Hamburg, where leftists rioted, burned, and looted while the G20 leaders ponced about and wined and dined in style, apparently oblivious to the havoc which their open border policies and multiculturalist mindset had birthed. As Trump worked successfully on trade and defense issues in Europe, his administration was quietly plugging security leaks and maladministration in our own bureaucratic underground.
Beyond all the statesmanship, I love this bit, too:
The VA has removed 526 employees since Jan. 20, according to the accountability report released on Friday. Agency officials have demoted another 27 employees and temporarily suspended an additional 194 employees for longer than two weeks. The list does not include the employees' names but shows their positions.
Regarding G20: Trumps brand of Presidency became clear that it will be the first Presidential King monarchy style Whitehouse, complete with a Queen, Prince and Prince, all given the authority to act accordingly on behalf of the American poeple. The prince and princess are Jared and Ivanka with Queen Melania. They were all deeply engauged with all the world leaders this week in Hamburg and the Europeans were very comfortable and accommodating of this unique style never before seen from the Whitehouse.
