The present Magisterium supports the political Left on doctrine and has also made a factual mistake

It is said that the Church teaches through her magisterium. It is true.The Magisterium is the teaching authority of the Church inspired by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit cannot teach error.If there is error in the teaching of the Magisterium it is human error.
The contemporary magisterium has made a human error. it is a factual error. The contemporary magisterium has also been politicised. It supports the poliical Left in public.Many things promoted by the political Left are evil and the work of the enemies of the Church. Yet the present magisterium has been accomodating the enemies of the Church for various reasons.
This is not a pleasant report to write but it is clear that the present magisterium contradicts the magisterium of pre-1808 times. The difference is very clear on the issue of salvation. However there have been changes made in moral theology etc.
A few years back when the SSPX was being welcomed into the Church during the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI, the leftist newspaper La Stampa ( Vatican Insider) had a reporter contact the Vatican. Cardinal Gerhard Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith assured the reporter that in an agreement with the SSPX there will be nothing to upset Catholic -Jewish Left good relations.He meant that the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus(EENS), at least, will not be affirmed and Vatican Council II will be interpreted as a break with the dogma. LG 16 would be a break with the Feeneyite version of EENs.
Then in an interveiw with Edward Pentin for the National Catholc Register Cardinal Muller, when asked specifically about the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus indicated that the old understanding had changed with Vatican Council II.He was not going to affirm the strict interpretation of the dogma.
Pope Benedict  XVI had the same position. In public Pope Benedict said that Jews do not have to convert in the present times.He was supported by cardinals in the Curia. This was pleasing to the Chief Rabbinate of Israel.
So doctrine has been changed out of poltical necessity. This is not the same magisterium as the magisterium of the past.So Catholics can no more say that ,"The magisterium teaches this so it is true".
The present magisterium has also made a factual mistake since there are no known cases of some one saved in the present times in invincible ignorance(LG 16) for LG 16 to be an exception to EENS.How can zero cases be an exception to all needing to formally enter the Church for salvation ? Neither is the baptism of desire (BOD) and the baptism of blood (BOD)  an exception to EENS and so the Holy office in 1949 made a factual mistake.
This  objective error cannot be the work of the Holy Spirit.
