“He’s known as “Father Erwin Mena”. Since the mid 1990’s he’s been celebrating mass at Catholic churches throughout California. He’s held prayer meetings, paid counseling sessions and nights of confession in the dioceses of San Bernardino, Stockton, Orange, and Fresno.
But he’s not really a priest. His real name is Erwin Arnaldo Menacastro, 49 years old. Detectives say he’s a fake wanted by the LAPD for swindling thousands of dollars from believers. His latest ploy was selling tickets for a pilgrimage to New York and Philadelphia to visit with Pope Francis during his last U.S. tour.
Detectives say the Pope-Tour scam netted Mena more than $15,000 from unsuspecting victims, many from low income families.” http://cal-catholic.com/?p=21941

“I [LF’s Donna Anderson] remember thinking back in 2004, as I was learning about psychopaths, that an Iraqi politician named Ahmed Chalabi fit the profile.
Chalabi was charming, smart and persuasive. He was connected to top officials in the administration of President George W. Bush. Chalabi provided the “intelligence” that Saddam Hussein was stockpiling weapons of mass destruction, which was the public justification for the United States invasion of Iraq.
Well, he lied. No WMDs were found.
By 2004, it became apparent that Chalabi had manipulated America get what he wanted — the war. But Chalabi did not apologize. He said that the ends — removing Saddam Hussein from power — justified the means.
My psychopathic ex-husband used to say that: “The ends justifies the means.”
Ahmed Chalabi died of a heart attack last week.
In the meantime, 4,493 Americans were killed in Iraq, and thousands more wounded. Estimates of civilian war deaths generally range between 100,000 and 200,000.
Maybe, if government officials knew how to recognize a psychopath, none of this would have happened.” http://www.lovefraud.com/2015/11/06/ahmed-chalabi-dies-the-con-man-who-helped-push-the-u-s-into-iraq/
I agree on Chalabi. Absolutely, no doubt at all. ‘The ends justify the means’ — mantra of the psychopathic, mantra of the psychopath wannabes, mantra of the evil.
