Bergoglio has been five years of cringe. That must be an influence even on leftist leaning appointees.

ppbxvi.org Bergoglio never had the authority to nominate anyone. It's a canonical fact.
When, God spare us, , Benedict XVI eventually passes away then whom, exactly, will you say is the valid reigning Pope? Just curious...
Nobody. Pretty simple. How on earth do you find the time to post here all day? Don't you have a job? Outside of virtue signalling and race baiting, doesn't designing gowns for pride events and public library story hours consume all?
Likewise, JPII and BXVI stacked the College of Cardinals with Conservatives to solidify a majority. Scola was all but a sure bet.

And Bergoglio was elected.
Well Dr. B, he elevated McCarrick and Kasper to the College of Cardinals just to name two. To add a third he also elevated none other than Jorge Bergoglio to Cardinal as well. If that was his attempt at "stacking the college with conservatives," well he loused that up pretty badly.
You're partly right--partly because of the influence of Sodano.

Bernardin tried to put his man (Kelly) in New York. JPII said no, instead naming O”Connor. Later, as Bernardin was dying (despite assuring Chicago he was cured), he went to Rome more than once to try to name his successor.

On the other hand, when DC opened, the obvious candidate was Rigali, who was trained as a diplomat. Sodano, however didn't like him, and McCarrick was named. And after Mc C came Wuerl.

Sodano and his Buddy Re (Head of Bishops) were both compromising diplomats and wanted moderates . They didn't want bishops who would make ut difficult to deal with secular governments--no one like Ratzinger but also no lefties. They thought JPII/BXVI had eliminated lefties, but they only drove them underground and pretended to be moderate.

And in the 90s Ratzinger was warning the Curia about the Church in Germany, but people like Sodano and Re thought he was exaggerating.

BTW, BXVI wanted to put Mueller in Cologne, but the German bishops nixed it.
POPE SAINT JOHN PAUL II NAMED THOSE ANTI CHUCH THAT BLACK DAY MCCARRICK KASPER BERGOGLIO AND RODRIGUEZ MARADIAGA. THE PROBLEM WAS AT THAT DATE POPE SAINT JPII WAS VERY WEAK ON HIS HEALTH AND DELEGATED IN SODANO AND OTHER ANTI CHURCH.
