Against Cardinal Raymond Burke
On February 14, Vatican insider grasped with zeal an entry by Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington Cardinal which the latter wrote to his American brother, Raymond Cardinal Burke.

Wuerl accused his brother of treason because of his criticism Pope Francis' decisions.
Against Cardinal George Pell
On February 16, Vatican Insider informed with a number of previously unknown details about steps that have been made for Legislative Texts on behalf of Pope Francis and the Pontifical Council to reduce the decision-making powers and responsibilities of George Cardinal Pell as Prefect of the new Economy Secretariat. It was Francis who called Cardinal Pell, Archbishop of Sydney, who was still in Australia exactly one year ago to Rome and placed him at the head of the new Congregation.
Against Cardinal Joseph Zen
On February 19, Vatican Insider devoted wide space for an article with some sarcastic criticism by an unknown Chinese priest, degrade Cardinal Joseph Zen, Bishop Emeritus of Hong Kong and undisputed head of the underground Catholic Church in China loyal to Rome. He was described in caustically, as boycotting any attempt at "appeasement" between the Holy See and the communist government in Beijing.
Open season on the "kangaroo" Pell
After the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts and the Pension Fund of the Vatican rose against the Australian cardinal in the ring. On 20 February, he said in a press statement that the pensions of Vatican officials are secured and "disruptive" news in recent months were unfounded.
It is Cardinal Pell, who had been concerned for months sounding an alarm because of the Vatican's pension funds. For the first time he did so in July 2014, with the announcement that it would have required a committee of experts to study the problems. He repeated it in the British weekly Catholic Herald last December and 13 February on the website crux of the Boston Globe.
Against the attempt by Cardinal Pell to bring order to the pension fund, the same Board of Directors reacted. The chair is Domenico Calcagno Cardinal, President of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA), St. Peter Buildiong Works, the Propaganda Fide, the Secretariat of State, Vatican Radio and the Governor of Vatican City. "In short, the representatives of all these institutions were in a power struggle with Pell, who were struggling to preserve their economic and financial autonomy," said Magister.
Thus, below the encircling attack progress against the man who is often referred to by the English media as the "Czar" of Vatican finances, but within the holy walls, and even in altissimis, he is quite prosaically called the "kangaroo."
