ALL ROADS ...
... LEAD TO ROME ...?
Hello all ...
I want to continue the theme of last week's newsletter in which I highlighted the Babylonian and sun worship symbolism of Rome and the Vatican City.
As I said in conclusion, the significance of Rome is far more than its symbolic language written into the architecture. The city, and especially the Roman Church, the Church of Babylon relocated, is the headquarters for some of the world's most powerful secret societies.
Here you will find the global lair of the Knights of Malta, Opus Dei and the Society of Jesus, which also connect into other groupings like the Knights Templar and the Mafia. All are strands in the web of deceit and manipulation that has been operating in the Middle East and Europe for thousands of years and now weaves its evil worldwide. It is the web I call the Illuminati.
Some of these societies are closer to the spider than others, of course, and the closer they are the more secretive they will be, the more powerful in terms of influence on global events and the more their highest initiates will know about the true nature of the conspiracy to enslave humankind.
The Society of Jesus or the Jesuits, with their sun worship logo, are about as close to the spider as you can get. Or rather, their leaders are. As usual, the Jesuit Order is itself structured as a spider's web and the outer strands know far less than those at the centre. It is the Jesuit leadership that controls the Knights of Malta, Knights Templar, Knights of Columbus in the USA, and works closely with another secret order of the Roman Church, Opus Dei, which was created by Jesuits. The alleged rivalry between the two is a diversion.
The Jesuit 'Mother Church' in Rome
The Society of Jesus was the creation of Ignatius Loyola, who was born at the Castle of Loyola in the Basque province of Guipúzcoa in Spain on Christmas Eve 1491. He and a group of associates founded the Jesuit Order in 1537 and it was given papal approval in 1540. The Illuminati secret society network was already operating and had been since the ancient world where it infiltrated the Mystery schools and hijacked the hidden knowledge that went far back to before the Great Flood - the cataclysmic geological upheavals that brought an end to a once global society.
Now the Society of Jesus would become another strand in the web and it expanded its influence until it reached its present status as one of the most powerful secret societies on earth. Loyola became the first Superior General of the Jesuits, also known as the 'Father General', and he sent his agents far and wide to set up schools, colleges, and seminaries.
The Jesuits now have some 25,000 members in 112 countries and the worldwide structure consists of regions known as assistances, which are themselves made up of provinces. It is the usual top-down, Russian doll, system that allows those at the top to keep the big agenda of the organisation from the lower ranks. The Superior General has absolute authority and is chosen for life or until he decides to resign.
The regional structure of the Jesuits. It is used as a front for global manipulation
The Jesuit Constitutions were written by Loyola and created a dictatorship that demanded absolute obedience to the Pope and 'superiors' within the Order. He said that Jesuits should be 'well-disciplined like a corpse'. Loyola produced a book called Spiritual Exercises in 1548 and it is still at the heart of Jesuit 'education'. It tells Jesuits to suspend their own judgement and the thirteenth rule says it is a virtue to believing only what the Catholic Church tells them - even if it's not true. The example is given of seeing something that is obviously white, but believing it is really black if the Catholic hierarchy says it is.
The same structure was employed by the Jesuit-educated Adam Weishaupt when the Bavarian Illuminati was officially launched on May 1st, 1776 and by many other secret groupings. Weishaupt taught Roman Catholic Canon Law at a Jesuit institute of higher learning in Bavaria, Germany, the birthplace of many Illuminati front men like Henry Kissinger and the current Pope.
The themes of the Jesuit Oath were also adopted by Weishaupt as he and his conspirators set about causing mayhem in Europe and elsewhere to establish Illuminati political control. This was achieved by planting agents in all areas of society who then engineered the conflict that brought about the required change. The French Revolution, for example, was one of their covert operations disguised as giving freedom to the people and behind all these activities was the Jesuit leadership.
Weishaupt learned his 'trade' from the Society of Jesus and all these techniques of manipulation can be found in the oath taken by Jesuits when they enter the high command levels of the Order. In the Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction, or Blood Oath ceremony, recorded in the Journals of the 62nd Congress, 3rd Session of the USA and quoted in the book Subterranean Rome by Charles Didier, published in 1843, the real aims of the Society of Jesus are made crystal clear. Former Jesuit priests, including the late Father Alberto Rivera, have confirmed its existence and it fits the blueprint of Illuminati rituals and oaths.
The induction ceremony is conducted alongside an altar as the initiate, or postulant, stands between two monks. One is holding a banner with the Papal colours of yellow and white and the other holds a black banner bearing a knife with a red cross above the skull and crossbones. It also includes the letters INRI, which is said to mean IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS - 'It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers'. The initiate kneels and the Superior gives him a black crucifix to hold against his heart and a dagger which he holds pointing to his heart. The Superior confirms during the ceremony that the initiate has been taught to infiltrate and spy on behalf of the Order:
'My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man ... and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits and to denounce with all vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order ...
... You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous ...
... to take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side. You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to integrate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men.'
The initiate then pledges to wage covert war against the perceived enemies of the Order and the Pope:
'I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race.
That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.'
This is the true agenda behind the Jesuit operation which controls the Vatican and the Pope. Its current head, or Superior General, is a Dutch guy called Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, also known by Jesuit-watchers as the 'Black Pope'. He is far more powerful than the real one and works closely in America with New York Archbishop Edward Cardinal Egan.
The fundamental involvement of the Jesuit Order in world-changing events like the two global wars have rarely been told. Often blame is handed to a Jewish cabal, which does exist as a nexus around the Rothschilds and goes under the name of Zionism. This is an important part of the Illuminati, but not the spider. It is subordinate to the Jesuit hierarchy and the Church of Babylon, now known as the Roman Church. The Jesuit leadership has been quite happy to portray the conspiracy as Jewish-led because it hides where the true string-pullers are.
Not only was Adam Weishaupt Jesuit educated and controlled, so was Joseph Stalin and many of the key Nazis. Hermann Rauschning, former Nazi head of the Danzig government, revealed in 1939 that Hitler had said:
'I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits. Until now there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organization into my own [Nazi] party. In my Burgs of the Order, we will raise up a youth that will make the world tremble ...'
Walter Schellenberg, former chief of German counter-espionage, also quoted Hitler as saying:
'The S.S. organization has been constituted by Himmler according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. Their regulations and the spiritual exercises prescribed by Ignatius of Loyola were the model Himmler tried to copy exactly.
'Himmler's title as supreme chief of the S.S. was to be the equivalent to the Jesuit General and the whole structure and direction was a close imitation of the Catholic Church's hierarchical order.'
Hitler, Himmler, the Jesuit-trained Goebbels, and most of the major Nazis were Catholics and this is why there was so much cooperation and collaboration between Nazi Germany and the Vatican, as endlessly revealed in the decades since. The Knights of Malta coordinated the escape of the most vicious Nazis and scientists and mind manipulators like Josef Mengele to continue their horrors in the Americas. Many were issued with Knights of Malta passports. Hitler's one-time ally, Benito Mussolini, was also Vatican [in other words Jesuit]-controlled, as you would expect.
The two faces of the god Janus - the Babylonian Nimrod.
International finance appears to be the fiefdom of Jewish families, but behind them are the Knights of Malta, an arm of the Jesuit Superior General, and I know from my own research over many years that the Knights of Malta are the power behind the global banking system. It is they who control the International Monetary Fund (IMF), for example. An acquaintance of mine called me to say he had been offered a job with the IMF by the Knights of Malta at a meeting in Las Vegas. When he asked how they could possibly make such an offer, he was told that they ran the whole thing and to get the job he would have to join them. He turned them down.
The Rothschilds, a Jewish family we are told, have the title 'Guardians of the Vatican Treasury' and they ensure the financial wealth and secrets of the Roman Church stay well hidden. F.Tupper Saussy, author of the book, Rulers of Evil, wrote:
'Aware that the Rothschilds are an important Jewish family, I looked them up in [the] Encyclopedia Judaica and discovered that they bear the title "Guardians of the Vatican Treasury"... The appointment of Rothschild gave the Black Papacy [i.e., the hierarchy of the Jesuit Order] absolute financial privacy and secrecy. Who would ever search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church?'
And Bill Hughes writes in The Secret Terrorists and The Enemy Unmasked:
'The Rothschilds were Jesuits who used their Jewish background as a façade to cover their sinister activities. The Jesuits, working through Rothschild and [financier Nicholas] Biddle, sought to gain control of the banking system of the United States.'
There are Jesuit plants throughout politics, finance, commerce, media and military, among them Bill Clinton, who attended the Jesuit Georgetown University, the dictator, Fidel Castro, the mass murderer Robert Mugabe, and the horrific Simon Peres, the former leader of Israel. Knights of Malta have included Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, and Prescott Bush Jr., brother of father George Bush.
Bill Clinton as a boy meets President Kennedy - the future of the Jesuit-educated, Jesuit-controlled, Clinton was planned a long time ago. That's why he was given a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University after attending the Jesuit Georgetown.
The global intelligence community is awash with them, too, with the Knights of Malta once again the prime coordinator. During the Second World War while Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini were being controlled by the Jesuit-Vatican network, so were the intelligence agencies of the United States, Germany and the Soviet Union. Their operatives included William Donovan, head of the CIA predecessor, the OSS; General Reinhard Gehlen with German Intelligence who joined the CIA after the war; and Prince Anton Turkul with Soviet Intelligence. Turkul used Jesuits as couriers.
Nazi General and war criminal, Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's head of intelligence for the Eastern Front, was given the highest honour of the Knights of Malta, the 'Grand Cross of Merit', for services rendered.
Allen Dulles, first civilian head of the CIA, a Knight of Malta involved in the Kennedy assassination who was then appointed to the Warren Commission to 'investigate' how the president died
Many heads of the CIA have been Knights of Malta including the first director, Allen Dulles, and George Tenet, director before and during 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq. The infamous James Jesus Angleton, a major CIA operative involved in the Kennedy assassination, was a Knight of Malta, therefore controlled by the Jesuits. He largely grew up in Rome and became the head of both the Israel and Vatican 'desks' at the CIA, chief of counterintelligence and its 'liaison' with the Warren Commission that covered up the Kennedy murder. FBI chief, J. Edgar Hoover, and Clay Shaw, a CIA agent and the only man to be brought to trial for the assassination, were Knights of Malta. So was Kim Philby, the British Intelligence agent turned Soviet spy, a man close to the Rothschilds and a friend of Angleton.
My recent trip to Rome has provided a lot of new leads and areas of research and the more I uncover and understand the clearer becomes the involvement of the Vatican and its associated secret societies like the Jesuits, Opus Dei, the Knights of Malta and the Knights Templar.
All roads lead to Rome, they say - and they do.
