McCain and the Jesuits

Dear Brother Eric,

Joseph Biden is a native of the Jesuit stronghold of Scranton and he and his first wife were married by a Jesuit priest in the UN Chapel, I learned this on C-SPAN which televised a candid interview with Obama's running mate. Just as VP Freemason Richard B. Cheney was the actual President, Roman Catholic Biden would be the real President making him the third Roman Catholic President (JFK and George W. Bush) being the first two. Rome's upcoming PR move will be Bush's public conversion to Roman Catholicism just as SMOM Masonic Tony Blair had after leaving office. I recently read on Craig-Oxley's "The Unhived Mind" that one of Biden's sons, serves the Jesuits of the University of Scranton as a lobbyist for 70 or 80,000 FRNs a year. U.S. Senator Joseph Biden received an honorary degree from his political Jesuit masters in 1976.

The Jesuit Boston College Freshman Convocation Speakers of 2005 and 2006 Barack Obama and CFR John McCain respectively are also the planned keynote speakers for the American Pope's Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner in late October.

Interesting short article, Edward A. Reece SJ, president of Broph College Prep in Phoenix, Arizona will be giving the invocation at the fascist Republican National Convention in two days Sept. 3. A nun of the Congregation of St. Joseph which was founded by a Jesuit priest Jean Pierre Medaille, making her a Jesuitess, gave the closing prayers one night of the also Roman Catholic-dominated Democratic National Convention). This short article provides more evidence why CFR/CIA/ pseudo-Baptist John McCain will most likely be the next U.S. emperor and total slave of the Jesuits' Vatican and their Papacy. Interesting to note, Edward Cardinal Egan gave the invocation at a past RNC.

"Two sons of Cindy and John McCain went to Brophy Prep, and Mrs. McCain is a member of Brophy's board of regents."

"The McCains have been generous supporters of Brophy," said Father Reese. "I am also pleased by his support of vouchers for Catholic schools like Brophy."

Employing the Jesuit tactic of mental reservation, this son of Loyola lies about his support of a particular political candidate.

"Catholic priests should pray for anyone and everyone, but I don't think we should endorse or campaign for political candidates."

Brother Nick

Dear Brethren and Friends.

Here is the American Empire's next Holy Roman Emperor---John McCain---whose wife is a most devoted Roman Catholic and whose two sons were educated by Jesuit priests, one of those priests having spoke at the Republican National Convention. McCain will further betray the American peoples into the hands of our coming Sino-Soviet-Moslem-Roman Catholic-Latino invaders at the direction of his papal masters in New York City and Washington, D.C. Those masters are the Jesuits at Fordham University controlling the Archbishop of New York City, Edward Cardinal Egan (the mastermind behind 911) and the Jesuits of Georgetown University controlling the Archbishop of Washington, DC. The coming destruction of America will parallel not only the destruction of the once great Protestant Prussian Empire (1871-1918), but the destruction of Khazaria by the Russians, the Roman Catholic Byzantine Empire, the Moslems under the Baghdad Caliphate and later the Orientals led by Ghengis Khan. (All three kingdoms were noted for their large Jewish population---targeted by the Devil for destruction.) The iniquity of the American peoples seems now to have "come to the full" as was the case with the Amorites when Israel invaded Canaan after the Exodus.

Russian Bombers in Venezuela; Chinese intelligence ops in Cuba and throughout the Carribean; Chinese throughout Central America; Chinese control of Long Beach Naval Port; Roman Catholic Alien Latino Invasion; deliberate fuel shortages; debasing the currency; NATO troops preparing to invade once a new CIA "Al Qaeda" terrorist event occurs in Washington; Russia on the border of Iran via Georgia; the UAE (hosting Dubai, the pope's new, commercial world emporium to replace New York City) to be given a missile system by the US for its protection along with one US Carrier Group; the pope's Hamas in Gaza being incited by Rome's Masonic Jewish Labor Zionist government to further attack and destroy Israel in order to bring war to the pope's revived "Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem," the endgame being to bring down Jerusalem's two Temple mosques; White Middle Class peoples being driven into a more desperate state of existence via ceaseless Black-on-White crime, ceaseless Latino-on-White crime, food shortages, job losses, gun confiscation, loss of manufacturing infrastructure, McCain/Palin preparing for war on Iran; domestic Roman Fascist infrastructure set in place during the pope's Cold War, that infrastructure now perfected with the Jesuit Order's Department of Romeland Security (DHS), the Patriot Act, Concentration Camps, etc.; potential Civil War II, i.e., a Race War, now in the making with the leaders of both sides controlled by Rome via high-level Freemasonry; Freemasons Clinton/Gore giving high-tech, nuclear, military secrets to the Black Pope's Jesuit-directed Communist China preparing that invading force by 2015 according to Chinese sources; the Chinese practicing for invasion of the West Coast in the South China Sea; the pope's medical profession and SMOM-led big pharma having killed millions of patriotic, truly nationalistic, White Anglo Saxon Protestants and Baptists over the last 100 years via Rome's Rockefeller-financed "Medical Inquisition;" foreign, no-win wars further killing off the White Middle Class males---Catholic, Protestant and Baptist alike; the pope's American Bar Association-controlled legal profession "hiding justice in the law" (as stated in the movie The Star Chamber,"starring" actor Michael Douglas); the pope's private collection organization called the IRS intimidating workers in the private sector to pay the indirect, excise-on-federal privilege, income tax on wages earned in the private sector with no attorneys to plead the cause of these White Middle Class victims; the IRS policies enuring to the benefit of the pope's Cartel Capitalist International Corporations controlled by the Knights of Malta; the IRS destroying the White Protestant Middle Class and building the pope's White Fascist Cartel-Capitalist Corporate elite; etc.

All of this spells the end of the once grand and glorious Protestant Reformation including once Protestant America now totally apostate save for a minute remnant of believers. As it was in the days of Elijah, so it is now in America---the Lord having his remnant who refuse to bow the knee to Baal---and now the present high priest of Baal, the pope of Rome.

Further, we are witnessing the final building of our invaders, the Russian and Chinese war machines to be accompanied by millions of fanatical Moslems into the US after the pope's American fascists have murdered nearly all the "liberal" true nationalists, all the "accursed" Bible-believing Protestants and Baptists, and the "perfidous" racial Jews. Rome is expecting to reap a great harvest and, to give the Devil his due, the Jesuits have put all their ducks in a row.

The amazing part of this deplorable scenario is not one in ten thousand Americans preceives this grand design. The all parrot the line, "I am not a conspiracy theorist; I trust my government." The do not put their trust in the Lord, but rather in "princes.

May the Lord bless those of us who continue to sound the warning of our impending doom at the hand of that man of sin in Rome.

Sincerely in faith,

Brother Eric

Sarah Palin Supporting Jesuit Georgetown War Agenda Against Russia

"Protestant" VP Select of John McCain would go along with Jesuit Georgetown's war agenda


In her interview today with ABC News’ Charles Gibson, Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin stated in no uncertain terms “we cannot repeat the Cold War”. However, in a follow-up question about a possible hot war with Russia, the Alaska Governor’s answer was an unsettlingly non-committal “perhaps”.

The interview revealed today further aspects of Sarah Palin’s position on foreign policy, first explored in her RNC speech last week. She said she had already spoken to Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili and had given him assurances of her commitment to Georgia, and believed “we’ve got to keep an eye on Russia”. She said she was in favor of NATO membership for both Georgia and the Ukraine, and when asked if this would require the US to go to war if war broke out between Russia and Georgian again, the governor said “Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally”.

GIBSON: Let's start, because we are near Russia, let's start with Russia and Georgia.

The administration has said we've got to maintain the territorial integrity of Georgia. Do you believe the United States should try to restore Georgian sovereignty over South Ossetia and Abkhazia?

PALIN: First off, we're going to continue good relations with Saakashvili there. I was able to speak with him the other day and giving him my commitment, as John McCain's running mate, that we will be committed to Georgia. And we've got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable and we have to keep...

GIBSON: You believe unprovoked.

PALIN: I do believe unprovoked and we have got to keep our eyes on Russia, under the leadership there. I think it was unfortunate. That manifestation that we saw with that invasion of Georgia shows us some steps backwards that Russia has recently taken away from the race toward a more democratic nation with democratic ideals.That's why we have to keep an eye on Russia.


We cannot repeat the Cold War. We are thankful that, under Reagan, we won the Cold War, without a shot fired, also. We've learned lessons from that in our relationship with Russia, previously the Soviet Union.

We will not repeat a Cold War. We must have good relationship with our allies, pressuring, also, helping us to remind Russia that it's in their benefit, also, a mutually beneficial relationship for us all to be getting along.

GIBSON: Would you favor putting Georgia and Ukraine in NATO?

PALIN: Ukraine, definitely, yes. Yes, and Georgia.

GIBSON: Because Putin has said he would not tolerate NATO incursion into the Caucasus.

PALIN: Well, you know, the Rose Revolution, the Orange Revolution, those actions have showed us that those democratic nations, I believe, deserve to be in NATO.

Putin thinks otherwise. Obviously, he thinks otherwise, but...

GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn't we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?

PALIN: Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help.

But NATO, I think, should include Ukraine, definitely, at this point and I think that we need to -- especially with new leadership coming in on January 20, being sworn on, on either ticket, we have got to make sure that we strengthen our allies, our ties with each one of those NATO members.

We have got to make sure that that is the group that can be counted upon to defend one another in a very dangerous world today.

GIBSON: And you think it would be worth it to the United States, Georgia is worth it to the United States to go to war if Russia were to invade.

PALIN: What I think is that smaller democratic countries that are invaded by a larger power is something for us to be vigilant against. We have got to be cognizant of what the consequences are if a larger power is able to take over smaller democratic countries.

And we have got to be vigilant. We have got to show the support, in this case, for Georgia. The support that we can show is economic sanctions perhaps against Russia, if this is what it leads to.

It doesn't have to lead to war and it doesn't have to lead, as I said, to a Cold War, but economic sanctions, diplomatic pressure, again, counting on our allies to help us do that in this mission of keeping our eye on Russia and Putin and some of his desire to control and to control much more than smaller democratic countries.

His mission, if it is to control energy supplies, also, coming from and through Russia, that's a dangerous position for our world to be in, if we were to allow that to happen.

The Great Inquisition

The Great Heresies

Fr. Charles Connor PhD, historian and priest of the Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania, examines how the Catholic Church has dealt with heresy throughout its history and in the process gained a greater understanding of the Truths of the Faith.

Letter from Darryl Eberhart

Dear Addressees,

I saw a program on TV two nights ago (at 11:30 P.M. EST, September 9, 2008 on EWTN - "The Global Catholic Network") that I found quite DISTURBING. It was, I believe, "Part 2" of a series entitled "The Great Heresies". A Roman Catholic priest (I believe his name was "Rev." Charles P. Connor) spoke for half an hour concerning the Roman Catholic Church's historical mandate to stop heresies and to punish heretics. Remember, this type of "talk" or discussion is taking place in the year 2008 A.D.!

This Roman Catholic priest on EWTN was endeavoring to JUSTIFY the murder of "heretics". He stated that the [Roman Catholic] Church "HAD TO" take up the SWORD. He also said that it was the STATE that made "heresy" a "capital offense". (This is nothing more than a continuing "whitewash" of the Roman Catholic Church's RESPONSIBILITY for the horrors of the Inquisition, since few if any State officials in predominantly Roman Catholic countries ever dared to fail to carry out the execution of "heretics", which was URGED upon the State by prelates of the Roman Catholic Church. State officials knew that if they even hesitated in carrying out these murderous duties, they ALSO could be called before the Inquisition.)

This Roman Catholic priest on EWTN also stated that the [Roman Catholic] Church had to protect the faithful [i.e., Roman Catholic adherents] from those who might seduce them and cause them to LOSE their faith.

TRANSLATION: The Roman Catholic Church had to ELIMINATE all true Bible-believing Christians who might cause the Roman Catholic Church to LOSE "dues-paying members". (The departure of Roman Catholics from the Roman Catholic Church often occurred when Bible-believing Christians showed Roman Catholics that many Roman Catholic doctrines and practices were UNSCRIPTURAL.)

This Roman Catholic priest on EWTN also admitted that there is NO "freedom of thought" as concerns the [Roman Catholic] Church's established doctrine.

Do we realize how SERIOUS this kind of "HATE SPEECH" is? Do we truly realize how SERIOUS it is when the most powerful geopolitical-financial-religious institution in the world (i.e., the Roman Catholic Church) is on television (1) justifying the murder of those who disagree with Papal Rome's unscriptural doctrines and practices, and (2) whitewashing the horrors of the Inquisition?

Please carefully consider these following "dots":

Dot #1: The Office of Inquisition STILL exists to this very day, albeit under the more benign-sounding title of the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith". It is located in the Palace of the Inquisition in the Vatican. To the best of my knowledge, the records on "how to" torture individuals "to the maximum" have never been destroyed. (Additionally, the current pope, Benedict XVI, pulled multiple terms as the "head Inquisitor" prior to becoming pope!)

Dot #2: The official timeframe of the Inquisition, according to several researchers, is 1203-1808. The TORTURE was still "on-going" in 1808 when Napoleon's troops found underground torture chambers in Spain. Yes, the Dominicans had torture chambers under the floors of their monastery in Madrid, Spain in 1808! Dave Hunt, on page 79 of his book, "A Woman Rides the Beast" (1994), tells us the following about these Dominican torture chambers in Madrid, Spain in 1808: "The chambers were full of prisoners, all naked, many insane. The French troops, used to cruelty and blood, could not stomach the sight."

Dot #3: When the official Inquisition with its torture chambers was brought to an end in 1808 by Napoleon's troops, the Roman Catholic Church whined and moaned over the loss of the active operations of such an efficient institution (i.e., the Inquisition) for extirpating (i.e., exterminating) heresies and heretics.

Dot #4: Despite the fact that the Inquisition "officially" ended in 1808, we find Jesuit-controlled Papal Rome running a vicious modern-day Inquisition in much of Europe during World War II, where she helped install Roman Catholic dictators in Nazi Germany and other Fascist states. (The Jesuit-controlled Vatican SUPPORTED Nazi Germany and the other Fascist states in Europe for almost the entire war!) Jews, Protestants, and Orthodox Christians were especially targeted for extermination during this modern-day Inquisition.

Dot #5: Roman Catholic Fascist Croatia serves as an excellent example of a modern-day Inquisition. Up to one million innocent Serb Orthodox Christians were murdered - with many of them being brutally tortured prior to being murdered - from 1941 to 1945 in the Roman Catholic Fascist State of Croatia.

This religious genocide - this modern-day Inquisition - was planned and orchestrated by two Roman Catholic Jesuit monsignors - Aloysius Stepinac and Ivan Saric, respectively the archbishops of Zagreb and Sarajevo. This religious genocide was carried out by the Roman Catholic Ustashi (i.e., "Catholic Action") "killer squads", frequently led and advised by Roman Catholic Franciscan priests, friars, and monks. Some of the worst concentration camps were under the command of these Franciscan clerics. This religious genocide not only included torture and mass murder, but also included "forced conversions". (Some Orthodox Christians who converted under the "convert or die" policy ended up dead anyway, with their throats cut immediately after "converting" to prevent a change of mind at a later date.) Avro Manhattan, author of numerous books on Papal Rome, made this interesting statement about the Roman Catholic religious genocide in Fascist Croatia during World War II:

".Here [Ed.: in Fascist Croatia in the 1940s] the [Ed.: Roman] Catholic Church [erected] a State IN COMPLETE ACCORD WITH ALL HER TENETS. The result was a MONSTER standing upon the armed might of TWIN TOTALITARIANISMS: the TOTALITARIANISM OF A RUTHLESS FASCIST STATE and the TOTALITARIANISM OF [Ed.:Roman] CATHOLICISM.

What gives to such a creature of Vatican diplomacy its peculiar importance is that here we have an example of the [Ed.: Roman] Catholic Church's IMPLEMENTING ALL HER PRINCIPLES, unhampered by opposition, or by fear of world opinion.

The uniqueness of the Independent [Ed.: Roman] Catholic State of Croatia lies precisely in this: that it provided a MODEL, in miniature, of WHAT THE [Ed. Roman] CATHOLIC CHURCH, HAD SHE THE POWER, WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN THE WEST AND, INDEED, EVERYWHERE. As such it should be CAREFULLY SCRUTINIZED. For its of the GREATEST IMPORT to all the freedom-loving peoples of the world."
- Avro Manhattan ("The Vatican's Holocaust"; 1986; Page 9)

Dot #6: During the early 19th century three sets of meetings were held in Europe at the urging of Papal Rome. The purpose of these three meetings was to plan the DESTRUCTION of popular, representative governments - wherever they might appear - and especially the DESTRUCTION of the American Constitutional Republic in then-Protestant America. The first set of meetings was the Congress of Vienna (Austria) in 1814-15. The second set of meetings was at Verona, Italy in 1822. The third set of meetings took place in Chieri, Italy in 1825. The first two sets of meetings were attended by a number of despotic European monarchs - at the urging of Papal Rome. The third set of meetings was attended by high-level Jesuits to "fine-tune" the plans made at the first two sets of meetings. Again, the primary goal: the
DESTRUCTION of the American Constitutional Republic.
(One manifestation of these meetings was the fomenting of the American Civil War of 1861-65 by agents of Papal Rome, e.g. the Knights of the Golden Circle. Another manifestation of these meetings was the continued rapid increase of Roman Catholic immigration into the USA.)

Dot #7: The "takeover" of key institutions of power and influence in the USA (e.g., the mainstream media and the government) began in earnest over a century ago. Please consider the following two quotes:

"We find that the ROMAN CATHOLICS, who comprise less than one-sixth of the population [Ed.: in 1924 when McCarty's book was published], have been the DOMINATING POWER in our political affairs and of late years have headed almost every national, state and municipal office from the President down to the dogcatcher.

During the [Ed. President Woodrow] Wilson administrations [Ed.: 1913-1921] the Army, the Navy, the Treasury, the Secret Service, the Post Office, the Emergency Fleet, Transports, Printing, Aircraft and dozens of others were presided over by FOURTH DEGREE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS!"
- Burke McCarty ("The Suppressed Truth about the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln" (1924); Page 248 of the 1999 Larry Harrison edition)

"What [Ed.: Professor Carol A.] Brown [Ed.: of the University of Massachusetts] had learned from Carl Bernstein, I [Ed.: i.e., F. Tupper Saussy] had discovered for myself over several years of private investigation: the PAPACY really does run United States foreign policy. Yes, [Carl] Bernstein noted that the leading American players behind the Reagan/Vatican conspiracy to a man were 'devout ROMAN CATHOLICS'. But the reporter neglected to mention that the ENTIRE Senate Foreign Relations committee was governed by ROMAN CATHOLICS as well."
- F. Tupper Saussy ("Rulers of Evil"; 1999; Pages 1, 2)

Dot #8: The U.S. Intelligence Community and Federal Law Enforcement agencies (especially the FBI) were taken over many decades ago (via infiltration of key power positions within those organizations) by agents of Papal Rome (i.e., Jesuit-controlled Knights of Malta, Jesuit-controlled high-level Freemasons, Jesuit-controlled Knights of Columbus, and various Jesuit temporal coadjutors). For example, according to researcher and author Eric Jon Phelps, at least six heads of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have been Jesuit-controlled Knights of Malta (i.e., William Donovan, Allen Dulles, John McCone, William Casey, William Colby, and George Tenet).

Dot #9: U.S. foreign policy has been "steered" for many decades by agents of Papal Rome (i.e., Jesuit-controlled Knights of Malta, Jesuit-controlled high-level Freemasons, Jesuit-controlled Knights of Columbus, and various Jesuit temporal coadjutors). Many of our diplomats and Foreign Service personnel are trained at JESUIT Georgetown University!

Dot #10: The Supreme Court and other federal courts: Over the past several decades many justices on the Supreme Court had been Jesuit-controlled high-level Freemasons or Roman Catholics. (I believe we currently have five Roman Catholics as justices on the Supreme Court.) Many federal judges here in America have been, and are, Freemasons. (Please keep in mind that the Jesuit Order CONTROLS the highest levels of Freemasonry!) Is it any wonder that our God-given, Constitutionally spelled-out Rights have been under such attack in the federal courts of our land?

Dot #11: Roman Catholic bishops and other prelates in the USA and in Mexico actively support the massive invasion of the USA along our southern border by illegal aliens - the vast majority of whom are ROMAN CATHOLIC. These same Roman Catholic prelates in the USA oppose any efforts to curtail this illegal invasion!

Dot #12: There are TEN FEMA regions in the USA. There are also TEN Jesuit
provincials assigned to the USA. Discussion of martial law here in the USA has taken place even in the mainstream media. Do you think that it is just a coincidence that we have TEN FEMA regions and TEN Jesuit provincials assigned to the USA? When we go under total martial law, who will REALLY be running each FEMA region - the FEMA governor, or the Jesuit Provincial (or his personal representative) standing in the shadows?

Dot #13: "The Global Catholic Network" (EWTN) is running a series entitled
"The Great Heresies" in 2008 (which is JUSTIFYING the Inquisition).

Now PLEASE "connect" those 13 "dots". I believe that such "dot connecting" should alert us all to the very real danger of a modern-day Inquisition occurring right here in America - and SOON! The Knights of Columbus have a motto: "Make America Catholic (M.A.C.)" Do you think that they may be close to accomplishing that goal? Could the Knights of Columbus be used here in a Fascist America in the near future in the very SAME manner as the Roman Catholic Ustashi units were used in Fascist Croatia in the early 1940s?

Note: You might want to check on "The Great Heresies" series that is now running on EWTN - The Global Catholic Network. (Maybe EWTN will offer this series of programming on DVD?)

In Christ,

Darryl (Eberhart)

St. Peter’s pastor a global TV star

The Rev. Charles P. Connor will be discussing “The Great Heresies” on TV this evening.

The rector and pastor of St. Peter’s Cathedral in Scranton will be the featured guest on EWTN, Eternal Word, the global Catholic television network, during an 8 p.m. interview by Jesuit Father Mitch Pacwa on “EWTN Live.”

“The Great Heresies,” Father Connor’s latest series for EWTN, “will examine the great theological controversies that have plagued the church in her long history, and how the teaching church responded to these difficulties ‘under the guidance of the Holy Spirit’,” according to a release from the diocese.

Among the other series Father Connor has produced and hosted for EWTN are: “The History of the Catholic Church in the United States,” a two-part series on the history of the church from apostolic times to the present; “The Doctors of the Church,” “The Saint for the Third Millennium: Therese of Lisieux,” “Historic Catholic Converts,” “The Sacraments through the Ages,” “Defenders of the Faith” and “The Priesthood through the Ages.”

The author of several books, including “Classic Catholic Convert, Defenders of the Faith in Word and Deed,” and “Meditations on the Catholic Priesthood,” Father Connor’s newest book, “The Saint for the Third Millennium: Therese of Lisieux,” will be issued in the spring by Alba House.

His column, “Our Catholic Heritage,” has been a feature of the Catholic Light since 1993.

Ordained to the priesthood for the diocese in 1990, Father Connor is former pastor of St. John the Evangelist in Susquehanna and St. Rose of Lima Parish, Carbondale, and was named Cathedral rector in 2005. He serves as Censor Librorum and historian for the diocese.

Mass planning

One of the other things that has kept Father Connor busy of late is assisting with the planning of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Mass, to be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Peter’s Cathedral. Theresa Osborne is the Mass coordinator, and attorney Thomas Gilbride is Mass chairman. Also on the committee planning the annual Mass, which precedes the parade and 5K run, are Mary Kate Gordon, president of the Ladies of the Ancient Order of Hibernians; Daniel Haggerty, representing the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick; Deacon Edward T. Kelly, St. Peter’s Cathedral; Sean May, president of the Irish Cultural Society; Joseph Ruddy, president, Irish American Men’s Association; the Rev. Christopher Sahd, secretary to Bishop Joseph F. Martino, and Katie Sunday, president of the Society of Irish Women.

Constantinian Order - The Three Categories


Dear friends

I have now split my Constantinian Order category into three:

* Constantinian Order (Franco-Neapolitan)

* Constantinian Order (Hispano-Neapolitan)

* Constantinian Order (Pre-1960 Split)

These can be found at the following URL's

I have added prefaces to my earlier blogs detailing that there are two branches (two different Orders you could say) with some other notes & aim to ensure that my fellow researchers are aware of the differences by specifying each branch in the headers & articles.

May 2007 I discovered the website for the Constantinian Order. But it was only recently, through taking the time to look into this Catholic Chivalric Order a bit more, I discovered that the website that I was aware of was that of the “Hispano-Neapolitan” branch, one of two apparently disputing Sacred Military Constantinian Orders of St. George!

There is also a “Franco-Neapolitan” branch, a separate entity, which split from the other following a dispute over the title of the Head of the House of Bourbon of the Two Sicilies in 1960. This latter branch has some especially dodgy connections (P2 Masons, Arab politicians & royals, Druid Archbishops, media heads, etc., & the business deals that go hand-in-hand with such networks). As more information appears it will be made available.

In truth & awareness -

Jesuitical Freedom From Religion Foundation

Once religion enters civil affairs, watch out!

America is not menanced only by religious terrorism from abroad. Consider the growing threat by religious fanaticism here at home: the war against secular values, gay rights, abortion rights, and evolution. Beware of the Bush Administration's "faith-based initiative," the growing control by the Religious Right of politics, media and government, the callous disrespect for the constitutional principle of separation of church and state.

Is an American theocracy just around the corner? It can happen here

While our website offers a wide variety of resources, that sort of

My reply:
Your organization covers gay rights an abortion but not that of religious orders leading s to wars?!

Where Was Bush & Cheney During the RNC?

ALL ALONE AM I by Barry Chamish

Who failed to notice that the President and Vice-President missed the Republican National Convention? So where did they go? George oversaw Hurricane Gustav and Dick was in Rome taking care of Israel.

Palestinian president to meet with his Israeli counterpart Thursday evening

Thursday September 04, 2008 15:49author by Rami Almeghari - IMEMC & Agencies
Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas will be meeting his Israeli counterpart, Shimon Peres on Thursday evening in Italy.Israeli sources said that both leaders will be discussing outstanding political issues, security and economic concerns. The meeting comes ahead of a special conference in Rome on Friday, over relations between Israel and the Arab World, where Peres is suppose to meet with the vice-President of the United States, Dick Cheney, as well as the representative of the European Union, Manuel Brosu, the sources revealed.

Bet you thought Cheney was away from the convention just so McCain wouldn't be tarred with the reputation of the current administration. But no, meeting Peres and Abbas in the capital of Roman Christendom was far more important. And perhaps you'd like to know what they were discussing. Here is the real Shimon Peres, from the Bakersfield Business Conference, October 10, 1998:
Shimon Peres
Former Prime Minister of Israel. Nobel Peace Prizewinner.

I believe that this man was mostly motivated by fear and a resignation to a state of affair in the world, which from the perspective of a coming world government, dictates the impossibility for Israel (or any country for that matter) to ever be independent.

Here are some of his comments:

· "Protecting our lands is not as necessary as in the past."
· "The world has no borders."
· "How can you conduct foreign policy if you don't have an enemy? Enemies stem from nations; dangers are global. It is the same with security; you need security only if there are nations, not if you do not have any."
· "Business is now internationally minded."

How often have I said that Peres' true goal is the end of Israel? That his Israel would soon be borderless, followed by the end of ALL NATIONS. But it turns out, it's just me and the beat of my heart.

I'll bet you you've never heard about the Italian, Forum Villa d'Est. This central and secretive affair invites the leaders of the world to discuss the business of the planet. Forget, for now, that all the Americans are or were members of the CFR, just look who Peres meets with in Italy besides the pope; Candidates John McCain and Joseph Biden:

Forum Villa d'Este

In early September, at Villa d'Este in Cernobbio (Como), The European House-Ambrosetti organizes the forum entitled "INTELLIGENCE ON THE WORLD, EUROPE AND ITALY", which has come to be acknowledged as one of the most important annual meetings worldwide.

Heads of state, top representatives of European institutions, cabinet ministers, Nobel laureates, businessmen, managers and experts from around the world have come together each year since 1975 to discuss current issues of great importance for the world economy and society as a whole.

The FORUM presents forecasts of the economic and geo-political outlooks for the world, Europe and Italy, and analyzes the main scientific and technological developments and their impacts on the future of public and private institutions, business and society in general. This is accomplished through meetings, debates and presentations of special, ad hoc studies.

Among those who have taken part in recent years:
H.S.H. Albert II Prince of Monaco, José María Aznar, Silvio Berlusconi, Joe Biden, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, José Manuel Durão Barroso, Renato Dulbecco, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Valéry Giscard D'Estaing, Christine Lagarde, Vaclav Klaus,[B] John McCain, [/B]Giorgio Napolitano, Alain Juppé, Rita Levi Montalcini, Henry Kissinger, Mario Monti, Shimon Peres, Romano Prodi, Jean-Pierre Raffarin, Michel Rocard, H.M. Rania Al-Adullah Queen of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Card. Joseph Ratzinger, Helmut Schmidt, George Shultz, Jean-Claude Trichet, Umberto Veronesi and James Wolfensohn.

MY, my, what a fine co-incidence that two of the candidates for the next American administration meet in Italy to plot the fate of the borderless world. That it doesn't make a damn bit of difference who you vote for, you get the same agenda. So let's forget the incredibly tarnished Presidential candidates and look at the VPs to be. Plagiarist Joe Biden terrifies Israelis in the know for his legislative kowtowing to Iran and his real hatred for Israel. But to point this out is alright:
Biden Threatened to Cut off Aid to Israel

This may give some insight into Joe Biden's approach to Israel. Back in March 1992 Moshe Zak recounted that the Senator made the mistake of Confronting Prime Minister Menachem Begin (June 22 1982) during his Senate foreign relations committee testimony. After Biden threatened to cut off aid to Israel. Begin just let him have it. Read this report of their confrontation, that was published by Soccer Dad almost two years ago (way to think ahead Dave) and another recount of
the issue from Time Magazine 7/5/1982:

It's one Sarah Palin that is off limits to, especially, Christians. And I paid dearly this week for pointing out the game she is being used for.

When she was first introduced, I had no idea she claimed to be Christian. Her children's names Track, Trig et al are not Christian names. In fact, get ready for real trivia, Track and Trig were the sled dogs of Dudley Doright of the Mounties. We recall the cartoons with him mushing his sled with a whip and shouting, "On Track, On Trig."

But that's okay. We'll say she discovered Christianity when it was good for her governmental ambitions. What was not okay was McCain claiming she was a "reformer" who stood up to "big oil." Meaning Bush, we assume. In fact, Palin wants to open Alaska's nature reserves to drilling, is pushing to build a natural gas pipeline with state money and has taken illegal donations from incriminated oil lobbyists. She is not fighting the oil corporations, she was chosen because she fights for the oil corporations. Even if it means hunting down all the wildlife blocking her desires.

So, I lose my Christian supporters but, YOU'VE BEEN HAD.
Now here is a picture of the person who you've taken to your hearts:

Dear friend,

I am a resident of Wasilla, Alaska. I have known Sarah since 1992. Everyone here knows Sarah, so it is nothing special to say we are on a first-name basis. Our children have attended the same schools. Her father was my child's favorite substitute teacher. I also am on a first name basis with her parents and mother-in-law. I attended more City Council meetings during her administration than about 99% of the residents of the city.

So many people have asked me about what I know about Sarah Palin in the last 2 days that I decided to write something up . . .

You have my permission to forward this to your friends/email contacts with my name and email address attached, but please do not post it on any websites, as there are too many kooks out there . . .


While Sarah was Mayor of Wasilla she tried to fire our highly respected
City Librarian because the Librarian refused to consider removing from
the library some books that Sarah wanted removed. City residents
rallied to the defense of the City Librarian and against Palin's
attempt at out-and-out censorship, so Palin backed down and withdrew
her termination letter. People who fought her attempt to oust the
Librarian are on her enemies list to this day.


First, I have long believed in the importance of being an informed voter. I am a voter registrar. For 10 years I put on student voting programs in the schools. If you google my name (Anne Kilkenny + Alaska), you will find references to my participation in localgovernment, education, and PTA/parent organizations.

Secondly, I've always operated in the belief that "Bad things happen when good people stay silent". Few people know as much as I do because few have gone to as many City Council meetings.

Third, I am just a housewife. I don't have a job she can bump me out of. I don't belong to any organization that she can hurt. But, I am no fool; she is immensely popular here, and it is likely that this will cost me somehow in the future: that's life.

Fourth, she has hated me since back in 1996, when I was one of the 100 or so people who rallied to support the City Librarian against Sarah's attempt at censorship.

Fifth, I looked around and realized that everybody else was afraid to say anything because they were somehow vulnerable.

Anne Kilkenny

I have not changed my position one bit. No responsible citizen should vote. It's the only out. The system has been hijacked. And in my circle, no other voice can say the words: Obama or McCain, the dismembering of Israel carries on as usual.

End Part One

The hijacking of Israeli protest continues unabated while Peres, Abbas and Cheney plot to remove the borders of the nation. Here is one morning of correspondence, with Israeli errors in English untouched. Why do these fine people think I can help them when I'm so alone?:

Barry, I think you are a little bit wrong. Everybody in Israel is afraid of the Shabak. Look at yourself. You ran away from Israel to save your life. Everybody knows that Shabak is dangerous. You cannot expect this silly lawyer to tell you the truth that she has been contacted and most probably threatened by Shabak. Especially when the Shabak threatened her to cooperate with them against you and not tell anybody about it. As you said yourself, the whole system in the country is rigged. You cannot expect an honest treatment form anybody, be it private or official person. I fled from the country and know that I cannot expect anything from anybody there. A typical example is what you told me about the "treatment" of the police regarding your "accident". Such an evil treatment ist applied to everybody in Israel, not only to you. This is why I am pessimistic as to the survival chances of this country. A healthy state has to exhibit a minimum of decency and justice in order to exist. I am sure this is not the case with Israel. Sorry to disappoint you.

Dear Friends,
Baruch Hashem, a success last night.
Not only did tens of citizens succeed in reaching the house of Central Command Officer Gad Shamni and hold a vigil there in protest against the eviction orders, but we managed to remind everyone that the Olmert-Livni regime is a totalitarian and Bolshevik regime that persecutes loyal Jews instead of fighting against Israel's enemies, the Arabs and the international anarchists.
The tens of citizens who were arrested around 6:45pm while driving on the 443 highway and in other roads, were accused of "wanting to participate in an illegal gathering". They were all brought by the Israeli "thought police" to the police stations of Modiin and Ramle.
Placards, flags and megaphones were confiscated and not returned. On different occasions the police used brutal violence, inside and outside the police compound, against innocent bystanders, among them elderly women, children and journalists.
Shmuel Medad, head of the Honenu legal rights organization which helps nationalist-camp members who are arrested during the course of their activities, told at around 5 PM, "The last of the 15, Itamar Ben-Gvir, is having his hour in court right now. He is demanding to know why he was arrested in the first place." Ben-Gvir is a veteran of legal struggles in these matters, and is said to know his way around the court system better than many lawyers.


There were hundreds at the rally and a couple of dozen arrested. Naturally, the squealer Itamar Ben Gvir was one of them and naturally, he was the last to face a hearing, after he gathered enough dirt on us for the cops.


Peres And The Vatican; King Juan Carlos, The Vatican's King Of Jerusalem And Its Holy Places, is invited by Peres to build the ecologically disastrous Red-Dead Canal. More:

Peres invites King Juan Carlos to Israel

Solar energy, electric cars and water management were among the numerous subjects that came up for discussion in the president's meeting with Spanish Ambassador Gutierrez, who told him that Spain wants to make a contribution to peace in the Middle East and also wants to be part of the Red/Med canal project. Peres invited King Juan Carlos to visit Israel, and Gutierrez passed on a joint invitation from the king and Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero for Peres to visit Spain.

The king and the prime minister wanted the visit to take place as soon as possible, said Gutierrez, because they wanted to show Spaniards a side of Israel besides the conflict.

Edward A. Reese, S.J.: Your Work May Be Ours

RNC Jesuitical Invocation

Jesuitical Ledochowskiesque Set Up [for the U.S. to loose a major future war]

VP Select Sarah Palin

According to Eric Jon Phelps


What do you make to McCain's Vice President choice?


She is the perfect choice. She is a woman, pro-creationism, pro-gun and
anti-sodomite marriage. She will secure public opinion for McCain and thus
the "election." This move will unite "conservative" Catholics and
"conservative" Protestants behind McCain and it will make the pope's Crusade
appear to be led by Protestants. McCain is a "Southern Baptist" and Sarah
Palin is an "Assembly of God." Now Dobson, Hagee and Robertson can fully
back McCain.

McCain's VP Select Sarah Palin a 'post-denominationalist' ex Catholic

From the National Catholic Weekly

Really. Beliefnet's got the story and so does The Deacon's Bench here. The information seems to have come from the newly (re)published biography of Governor Palin. (Her Wikipedia entry also notes her Catholic background, and mentions her "rebaptism" at age 12 in an Assembly of God church.) The question is: Will this matter to any Catholic voters? Or, for that matter, to any voters? Her current religious affiliation, that is a "post-denominational" Christianity, which is perhaps more germane to her worldview, is dissected by John Allen here.

James Martin, SJ

Jesuitical John McCain

From Boris:

Here is an interesting bit on McCains Jesuit connection.

The GOP's Jesuit

The Democrats may have their sister, but the Republicans can now lay claim to a Jesuit.

From James Martin [S.J.] at America comes this tidbit, from the Republican National Committee:

Father Edward A. Reese, S.J., president of Brophy Prep in Phoenix, will give the opening invocation at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul on September 3. Two sons of Cindy and John McCain went to Brophy Prep, and Mrs. McCain is a member of Brophy's board of regents. Son Jimmy joined the Marines and served in Iraq while Jack went to the Naval Academy.

"The McCains have been generous supporters of Brophy," said Father Reese. "I am also pleased by his support of vouchers for Catholic schools like Brophy."

When asked if he was endorsing McCain for president, Father Reese responded, "Catholic priests should pray for anyone and everyone, but I don't think we should endorse or campaign for political candidates."

Father Edward Reese is the brother of Thomas J. Reese, former editor of America and senior fellow at the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University. Both are Jesuit priests.

In this game of political praying poker, I suspect a Jesuit trumps a Josephite.

So the 2 sons of McCain go to Brophy Prep - a Jesuit school
"Brophy College Preparatory was founded in 1928 by Mrs. William Henry Brophy in accordance with the Society of Jesus as a Jesuit Catholic all boys school."

As seen above they are generous supporters of Brophy - so they give money to the Jesuits operation.

And then Father Reese is giving the opening invocation at the Republican National Convention.

This shows us clearly which side McCain is on.


TroySpace Info on Constantinian Order


Dear friends

As you may know, I have recently been posting much info on the Constantinian Order & its sister Order, the Royal Order of Francis I & highlighting the connections between these orders & the SMOM, Vatican Cardinals, Arab & European Royals, the Church of England & Freemasonry. This has brought forth information from others (thanks Boris) regarding a Jesuit-Constantinian Order connection via Cardinal Vanhoye. I have corrected any errors that I made & have added much more in the way of links & comments to substantiate the implications of these connections.

Please feel free to use these as reference pieces & please contact me with any info that can further flesh out the connections between the above associations, with links if possible. All due credit will be given of course.

In truth & awareness -









According to its most commonly repeated history, the original institution from which the modern Order descends was founded by the Emperor Constantine the Great to provide a guard for the Labarum, or Standard, which had been carried at the head of his troops at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312 a.d. [Note 1.2] This great victory over the pagan forces of Maxentius led to the conversion of the Roman Empire to Christianity and had a profound effect on European history. It probably seemed appropriate to sixteenth and seventeenth century historians that such a momentous event should have been commemorated by the establishment of an Order of Chivalry. [Note 1.3] Statutes dating from the sixteenth century, state that the original rules were confirmed and amended by the Emperors Isaac Angelus and Michael Paleologus, but the only extant versions of these statutes date from the sixteenth century. The Constantinian Order subsequently received confirmation as a Religious-Military Order from the Holy See and, with the Order of Malta, is the only international Catholic Order which has maintained this status unchanged to the present day. The Order is dedicated to propaganda of the Faith, Defence of the Church and support of the Holy See; the members owe a particular duty of loyalty to the Pope and to support the teachings and dogma of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Constantinian Order is also the only international Catholic Order with an hereditary Grand Mastership. Since 1731 this has been the inheritance of the Bourbon family descended from Philip V of Spain and his wife Elizabeth Farnese [See Bourbon Dynasty]. Although often described as a Neapolitan institution, this is a mistaken view of the Order's history. Before 1698 its administrative headquarters was based in Venice, the residence of its Grand Masters, or traveled with them. From 1698 until 1768 it was based in Parma, even though the Grand Master himself took up residence in Naples in 1734. The administration was removed Naples and the separate administration of the Order's Parmesan properties terminated in 1780; aside from the period of the French occupation from 1797-99 and 1806-1815, the administration remained in Naples until the downfall of the Two Sicilies Monarchy in 1860-61. Forced into involuntary exile from his homeland the Grand Master moved to the Palazzo Farnese in Rome. The nominal administration remained in Rome until 1960, even though the Grand Masters themselves were resident in Bavaria and Cannes, and a Constantinian chapel was built in the Basilica of Santa Croce al Flaminio and dedicated by Pope Benedict XV. His Holiness Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass there on February 23, 1997; HRH the Grand Master attended, accompanied by the Spanish Ambassadors to the Holy See and the Quirinale and the President of the Italian Commission of the Order, along with a number of Constantinian Knights. This Church is also the site of the annual Saint George's Day celebrations and a monthly Mass for Knights and Dames of the Order.

The preponderance of members from Southern Italy contributed to the belief that it is a Neapolitan institution and, indeed, from the last quarter of the eighteenth century onwards most of the senior posts in the administration and a majority of the knights were drawn from the nobility of the (former) Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. The Two Sicilies Crown and Constantinian Grand Magistery, however, are entirely independent of each other even though they were united in the same person. The Constantinian Grand Magistery is an inheritance by male primogeniture from the Farnese dynasty. On the extinction of the latter, the succession passed with Papal assent to the nearest male heir, the Infante don Carlos de Borbón y Farnese (later Charles III of Spain). In 1759, after the latter transferred his Neapolitan Crown to his third son Ferdinand, the Constantinian Grand Magistery was ceded in a separate act ten days later, the young King Ferdinand being declared "legitimate primogeniture male heir of the Farnese".

The succession to the Constantinian Grand Magistery can only pass to males and, on the extinction of the last male descendant of Charles III, it passes to the Bourbon-Parma line. The Two Sicilies Crown, however, must pass to the nearest female heiress of the last male descended from Charles III. Thus, even though the separation of the two successions may seem unlikely, the very fact that they pass by different laws is evidence of their mutual separation. Every historian of the Order without exception, writing between 1860 and 1960, emphasized the complete independence of the two successions. Indeed, it was the fact that the Grand Magistery was independent of the Crown which led the Italian Government to determine that it was excluded from those acts suppressing the Two Sicilies Crown and Orders. Had it been part of the inheritance of the Crown of the Two Sicilies, it would not have survived 1860 in Italian law. Thus no act or decree concerned solely with the succession to the Two Sicilies Crown can affect the succession by male primogeniture to the Constantinian Grand Magistery. The Order is regulated as a subject of canon law, and the succession to the Grand Magistery is governed first by the statutes of 1705, approved by Papal Brief in 1706 and the Bull "Militantis Ecclesiae" of 1718, and then confirmed in the statutes of 1922 approved by Papal Placet (these statutes modified in 1934, 1943, 1987 and 2004).

Today the Order flourishes under its XIth Grand Master in succession from Francesco Farnese, the Infante Don Carlos de Borbón-Dos Sicilias y Borbón-Parma, Duke of Calabria, doyen of the Knights of the Golden Fleece. There are nearly 2,300 members predominately of Italian or Spanish birth, but also including Portuguese, British, German, French, Swiss, Belgian, Austrian and American knights and dames.
