Jesuits: The Vatican’s Chief Assassins

Ever since the Counter-Reformation, Saint Ignatius’s admonition to his Jesuit order to put on the “armor of God” has been interpreted as a license to kill for the Vatican.

Astory is told that Saint Ignatius was seated at the side of a road, looking at the stream that crossed it, absorbed in contemplation when the eyes of his soul were opened and inundated with light. He was able to distinguish nothing with his five senses, but he comprehended marvelously a great number of truths pertaining to the faith or to the human sciences. The new concepts and ideas were so numerous and the light so bright that Ignatius seemed to enter into a new world. The amount of this new knowledge was so great that, according to Ignatius, all that he had learned in his life up to his sixty-second year, whether supernatural or through laborious study, could not compare with what he learned in this one ecstatic experience. In his Spiritual Exercises, Ignatius strove to capture, in a series of reflections, examinations of conscience, and prayers, the steps to a mystical union with God.

It has been said that Saint Ignatius of Loyola was dominated all his life by a desire to imitate Christ. In 1540 he received papal approval for a new order, the Jesuits, soldiers of Christ, headquartered in Rome. Although the Jesuits became a major force for the Catholic Church in the Counter-Reformation, Ignatius was more interested in educating young people and establishing new mission fields than in punishing Protestants. He opened many schools during his lifetime and saw Catholic missions begun in Japan, India, and Brazil.

Ignatius was canonized a saint in 1622, and his beloved order remains strong today. It must be understood that when he spoke of becoming soldiers for Jesus, he was referring to the words of the apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:10–17:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

The admonition of Saint Paul to be prepared to be spiritual warriors against the forces of evil has been heard by all Christians, Protestant or Roman Catholic, at least once while they attended Sunday school or confirmation class, adult Bible study groups or church on Sunday morning.

Without being too presumptuous, we can imagine Ignatius instructing his new order of priests to be careful out there, Satan lurks behind every bush. The saintly Ignatius was not telling his priests to put a sword to everyone who crossed them or to initiate a great worldwide conspiracy to conquer and control the planet. However, since the time of the Counter-Reformation, beginning when Pope Pius IV sat on the Vatican throne of the papacy in 1560 extending to the close of the Thirty Years’ War in 1648, the Jesuits have been the villains in countless conspiracy theories. The following list touches on only a few of the most notable:

  • The great overriding goal of the Jesuit conspiracy is to set up a One World Government by controlling the Roman Catholic hierarchy, the pope, and the governing bodies of all the nations in the world.
  • Jesuits authored that classic of anti-Semitism, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, in order to stir up hatred of the Jews. The Jesuits had been expelled from Germany in 1872 and from France in 1880. They believed the Jews to be responsible for their loss of power in those European nations, so they began to implement a program of anti-Semitism as a means of revenge.
  • Jesuits engineered the Dreyfus affair in France in 1894 in an attempt to ignite a war between France and Germany. Alfred Dreyfus, a French army officer, was falsely accused of handing secrets over to the German government, but he was set up by the Jesuits, found guilty, and sent to Devil’s Island for ten years. The controversy over the case split French society in two.
  • Jesuits sabotaged and oversaw the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 in order to remove a number of wealthy Jews from power. Among those on board the “un-sinkable” vessel were John Jacob Astor, considered at the time the wealthiest man in the world; Benjamin Guggenheim, of M. Guggenheim and Sons; and Isidor Strauss, one of the founders of Macy’s.
  • Jesuits assigned one of their number, Bernhardt Staempfle to tutor Adolf Hitler and to guide the future Führer in the writing of Mein Kampf.
  • The Jesuit order served as the inspiration for Hitler and Himmler in their structuring of the SS.
  • Jesuits cooperated fully with the Nazis in handing over Jews. Especially with the Vichy government in France in 1942, the Jesuits helped round up the Jews for shipment to Auschwitz.
  • Jesuits control the Federal Reserve Bank and use its wealth to accomplish secret missions for the Vatican.
  • Jesuits established Zionist Israel through their control of the Masonic Jewish Zionists.
  • Jesuits secretly funnel money to anti-Semitic right-wing militia groups, as well as to the Ku Klux Klan and the Black Muslims.
  • Jesuits within the CIA, FBI, Secret Service, and Mafia assassinated America’s first Roman Catholic president, John F. Kennedy, because he defied the pope, the Universal Monarch of the World.
  • Jesuits established the network that destroyed the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center and attacked the Pentagon in order to provide justification for the crusade against Muslims.
