FYI and comment.

Not to say Francis I hasn't given me a turn or two. But this chap is not a Catholic priest in good standing, and never has been. For those of you familiar with these things, both the Society of St. Pius X and the Society of St. Pius the V were too liberal for him. He's not showing all his cards here. He doesn't believe the Pope is the Pope. Many of these sedevacantist ("the seat is empty") groups actually elect their own "Popes." There are several of these.

He makes an accurate observation here or there. But he's a crank. He has no judgment. And judgment is everything.

Is he even a priest?

Is “being a crank” a valid criticism of anyone? What virtue is being promoted here, and what does crankiness have to do with it? Do you mean the Church of Nice?

I am confused.
