Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church, decided to join forces with a host of global elites for the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) 2023.
This event, scheduled for September 18-19 in New York City, is set to address pressing global issues such as climate change, gender-based violence, and long-term reconstruction efforts in Ukraine.
The Pope’s participation in this summit is not without controversy. Critics argue his involvement could be seen as an endorsement of the Clinton Foundation’s agenda, raising questions about the Vatican’s increasing foray into global politics.
The CGI 2023 will commence with a special conversation between former President Clinton and His Holiness Pope Francis via remote link, focusing on the most pressing global challenges of our time.

Among the roster of globalists attending the event are Janet L. Yellen, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, Gavin Newsom, governor of California, and Jen Psaki, former White House press secretary and current MSNBC host.
Also scheduled to attend are Gretchen Whitmer, governor of Michigan, Ruth Porat, chief financial officer of Alphabet and Google, Dana Perino, co-anchor of America’s Newsroom, and others.
This isn’t the first time Pope Francis has been seen in the company of controversial figures. In July, he met with Bill Clinton and Alex Soros at his residence at the Casa Santa Marta.
Critics raised concerns about these meetings, questioning the Pope’s alignment with individuals who have been accused of causing significant damage to Western civilization.
Furthermore, in June, Pope Francis met with Brazil’s Marxist President Lula da Silva at the Vatican. This meeting between two South American leftists was marked by a shared kiss, further fueling the debate about the Pope’s political leanings.

Pope Francis has also been vocal about his views on conservative Catholics in the US. During a meeting with Jesuits, he criticized US conservative Catholics for their “backwardness” in thinking and accused them of replacing faith with ideology.
His comments highlighted the divisions within the U.S. Catholic Church, which is split between progressives and conservatives.
The Pope’s actions and statements have led to a wave of criticism from conservative circles. A video posted by The Gateway Pundit features Fr. James Altman, the priest behind the viral video, “You cannot be Catholic and a Democrat,” claiming “Pope Francis is not the Pope.”
As we move closer to the CGI 2023, it remains to be seen how Pope Francis’ involvement will impact the Vatican’s position in global politics. Critics and supporters alike will be watching closely as the Pope continues to navigate these politically charged waters.This article appeared in TheDailyBeat and has been published here with permission.
