View Full Version : Jesuit-Trained Movers and Shakers
12-19-2007, 08:49 AM
Below are relevant fragments of a very recent email exchange I had with Eric Jon Phelps of http://www.vaticanassassins.org/ in which I asked him what it means for someone to be Jesuit trained (my questions are in blue, Eric's response is in green):
I would like to know from you what it means for someone to be Jesuit-trained. Does the Jesuit Order keep (close) contact with its pupil for the entire duration of the pupil's life? Do the Jesuits openly manipulate their pupils after their education, steering them into certain directions beneficial to the Order on the excuse of merely 'advising' them? Or do they perhaps do that more stealthily and cunningly, by subtly providing their pupils with information at which the pupil then decides ostensibly by his or hers own volition the course in life ideally never suspecting that the Order is subtly steering them into their preferred direction? How does it pay off to have a Jesuit education? Are Temporal Coadjutors Jesuit-trained by definition?
The Order's Temporal Coadjutors may or may not be Jesuit trained. Those students who are trained by the Jesuits have the greatest possibility of finding a job after graduation. Their education is first, their placement is second and the reason for which the Order trained them. Their grads are found in every profession and walk of life. It is in these vocations that they become the most dangerous, men like Tim Russert and Chris Matthews of the Order's CFR-controlled Press. Many coajdutors are Yale and Harvard Grads. The Order has a Jesuit House at Harvard---the alma mater of Coadjutor Bill O'Reilly. If the Order puts you in political office, it expects you to submit to their advisor, men like Jesuit priest John McLaughlin, the man who wrote Nixon's speeches. If you jettison the Order that put you in office, then you will be punished or killed.
Also I can understand that a person such as Bill Clinton, being a Georgetown graduate, has the opportunity to build up a Jesuitical network from which he and the Order may mutually benefit later in life.
However, when it comes to, for instance, a person such as Fidel Castro or Joseph Stalin who were trained at a very early age, I am more at a loss of imagining how the Order maintains control of their pupils.
By sheer power of the machine put them in power. The CIA put Castro in power and has kept him in that power since 1960. The British SIS put Stalin in power and with the CIA, kept him there until he was poisoned for resisting the Order. He arrested his Jesuit advisor Alexander Poskrebyshev in late 1952. He was poisoned in March of 1953 and AP lived to a ripe old age dying in about 1965.
Therefore, could you please explain to me, in your opinion and knowledge, how the Order keeps on manipulating the lives of their pupils especially regarding those who were trained at a very young age?
The Order rewards their minions with money, power, women and anything necessary to keep these slaves happy. The tools also know that to resist this huge monlithic monster will be suicide as he is reminded of the JFK assassination.

Joseph Goebbels was born into a strict Catholic, working-class
family from Rheydt, in the Rhineland, on 29 October 1897.
He was educated at a Roman Catholic school and went on
to study history and literature at the University of Heidelberg.
Goebbels was exempted from military service during World
War I because of a crippled foot - the result of contracting
polio as a child.
Joseph Goebbels (seated) with his wife Magda, whose Jewish
father died at the Buchenwald slave labor camp, and the
six children whom they killed before killing themselves.
The eldest son in uniform, by Magda's previous marriage,
was in the Luftwaffe and survived the war. Goebbels was
so close to fellow Catholic Hitler that he had him serve
as first witness at his Catholic marriage.

"Still another fact", writes Frederic Hoffet,5 "shows that Catholicism
is not so foreign to National Socialism as one would wish it to
be. Hitler, Goebbels and Himmler, as well as most of the party's
'old guard', were Catholics....
"This relationship between National Socialism and Catholicism
is particularly striking if one studies more closely the party's methods
of propaganda and internal organization. Nothing is more instructive
in this connexion than the works of Joseph Goebbels. It is known
that the latter was brought up in a Jesuit College. . . . Every page,
every line of his writings recalls the teaching of his masters. There
is the stress placed on obedience, which was to be the principal
virtue of National Socialism . . . the disdain of truth. . . . 'Some lies
are as necessary as bread!' he proclaimed by virtue of a moral
relativism, taken from the writings of Ignatius de Loyola...."
Indeed, it was by assiduously applying this Jesuistic principle that
the chief of Nazi propaganda was to acquire throughout the world—
including Germany—the reputation of one of the greatest liars of
And Frederic Hoffet6 continues:
"There was, in particular, the National Socialist system of educating
and training its leaders, with which Goebbels had endowed the
regime. This system applied the methods of the Jesuits almost
servilely. The young recruits were grouped in schools situated well
out of town, where they had to spend several years, isolated from
the rest of the world. There, in an atmosphere of austerity, they
were submitted to a training which was in no way less severe than
that of the monasteries of the Company of Jesus. After a noviciate,
which ended in numerous and difficult tests, the future leaders had
to swear obedience: 'Perinde ac cadaver'.. . ."

"There can be no doubt about the blessings which Christianity has brought": The Archbishop is not alone in using this phrase. It has been repeated and repeated over the Centuries, and the fact is that it is entirely untrue! There is a technique called "The Big Lie", and it simply means to say that if one repeats a lie often enough and forcefully enough people begin to accept it without question. Now it is presently common usage to impute this technique to Dr. Josef Goebbels, Nazi Germany's Minister of Propaganda, and it is quite true that he used both the expression and the technique. But, Joseph Goebbels was trained by the Jesuits, and the technique was Christianity's. It worked (temporarily) for the Nazis, and it has worked for over a millennium for the Christians.
Goebbels and ‘Pille’ Kölsch were inseparable. They arranged for Jesuits like Father
Rembold to lecture to the students, and once Goebbels proudly invited his old scripture
teacher, Father Mollen, to lecture too. At Bonn he studied under Adolf Dyroff,
professor of philosophy. He attended the literary seminars of Professor Berthold
Lietzmann, and wrote well-regarded essays for Professor Carl Enders on the youthful
drama fragments of Johann Wolfgang Goethe. He stayed on in Bonn after term
ended on February 1, and moved into Kölsch’s lodgings in Wessel Strasse. The April
1918 issue of the Unitas journal reported that the two friends had decided to study
next in Berlin.

When Hitler became Chancellor, who was his Deputy Chancellor? Baron Konstantin von Neurath, a Roman Catholic, was Hitler's first Foreign Minister."
Flip over one page to page 11 and you will read:
"Who was the Nazi chief propagandist? The No. I liar of the Nazi Party, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda, head over press, radio, theatre, etc., was Dr. P. J. Goebbels, also a Roman Catholic. Konstantin, Duke of Bavaria, a Roman Catholic, said in his book, The Pope, page 77 that Goebbels 'received a Jesuit education, attended an academy in Catholic Rhineland, and received the scholarship for his training from a Catholic institution."
Sinclair goes on to say:
"Goebbels was trained by the world's most brazen liars."
We quote again from page 15 of the same source:
"Was Bormann a Roman Catholic? The play, THE VICAR, by Rolf Huchhuth, is not fiction; it is as accurate historically as any history book. In the U.S. edition of the play, Huchhuth gives 66 pages of documentation. It has long been known that Goebbels studied for the priesthood. The Austrian Fascist, Dollfuss, also studied for the priesthood. But Rolf Huchhuth says, "Hitler, Goebbels, Bormann, Kaltenbrunner, Hoess...studied for the priesthood."

Joseph Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili (Georgian: იოსებ ბესარიონის ძე ჯუღაშვილი, Ioseb Besarionis Dze Jughashvili; Russian: Ио́сиф Виссарио́нович Джугашви́ли (help·info), Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili) (December 18 [O.S. December 6] 1878 – March 5, 1953), better known by his adopted name, Joseph Stalin (Иосиф Сталин, Iosif Stalin; stalin meaning "made of steel"), was General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union's Central Committee from 1922 until his death in 1953. During that time, he established the eponymous regime, Stalinism. Although Stalin's formal position originally had little significant influence, his office being nominally one of several Central Committee Secretariats, Stalin's increasing control of the Party from 1928 onwards led to his becoming the de facto party leader and the dictator of his country, in full control of the Soviet Union and its people. His crash programs of industrialization and collectivization in the 1930s and his campaigns of political repression cost the lives of millions of people. However, it helped industrialize the Soviet Union making it a Great power by 1931. Only six years later, the Soviet Union had become the second largest industrial nation in the world.
During Stalin's reign, the Soviet Union played a major role in the defeat of Nazi Germany in the Second World War (1939–1945) (more commonly known in Russia and post-Soviet republics as the Great Patriotic War). Under Stalin's leadership, the Soviet Union went on to achieve recognition as one of just two superpowers in the post-war era, a status that lasted for nearly four decades after his death.
Stalin was trained by Jesuits while in the Tiflis Orthodox Seminary in Georgia---openly admitted by "Koba" himself to journalist and Masonic Jew Emil Ludwig (Cohen).
Ludwig: What impelled you to become an oppositionist? Was it, perhaps, bad treatment by your parents?
Stalin: No. My parents were uneducated, but they did not treat me badly by any means. But it was a different matter at the Orthodox theological seminary which I was then attending. In protest against the outrageous regime and the Jesuitical methods prevalent at the seminary, I was ready to become, and actually did become, a revolutionary, a believer in Marxism as a really revolutionary teaching.
Ludwig: But do you not admit that the Jesuits have good points?
Stalin: Yes, they are systematic and persevering in working to achieve sordid ends. Hut their principal method is spying, prying, worming their way into people's souls and outraging their feelings. What good can there be in that? For instance, the spying in the hostel. At nine o'clock the bell rings for morning tea, we go to the dining-room, and when we return to our rooms we find that meantime a search has been made and all our chests have been ransacked.... What good point can there be in that?
4. Of publishing a false statement for the purpose of concealment of status: (1900 to present day) That the Catholic Church, more specifically the Jesuit Order has maintained countless false statements and documents pertaining to the status of Joseph Stalin. That Fr. Joseph Stalin S.J. was a trained, dedicated and fully ordained Catholic priest of the Jesuit order, who was recruited for a historic mission in his final year at the seminary in 1899. That in addition to failing to recognize Fr Joseph Stalin S. J. Furthermore, that the Jesuit Order did permit Fr Stalin to marry not once but twice, while remaining a fully ordained priest. That for his entire life until his death, there is no indication that Fr Joseph Stalin S. J. was ever defrocked as a priest.
((Ed. Comments to the preceding quote: None of this “supposed inconsistency” is hard to explain. The facts are that the Vatican and her Jesuits were deeply involved in fomenting not only World War I, but also World War II. During World War II the Vatican supported not only Nazi Germany, but also the other Fascist regimes in Europe, such as Mussolini’s Fascist Italy and the Catholic-Fascist state of Croatia. In fact, Roman Catholic Knight of Malta Franz von Papen and the Roman Catholic Centrum (or, Zentrum) Party in Bavaria put Hitler into power! On the other side of the European continent, we find a Jesuit-trained monster named Joseph Stalin running the Soviet Union during World War II, with help from his Jesuit-trained friend, Cardinal Gregory Agagianian. (Both were trained by Jesuits who taught at the seminary in Tiflis, Soviet Georgia.) Stalin’s top intelligence man was Knight of Malta Prince Anton Turkul, who used Jesuits for his couriers! No wonder banks in the West – especially in the USA – helped finance both Adolph Hitler’s Nazi Germany and Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union. Thus by controlling both sides in the conflict, the Vatican and her Jesuits were able to exterminate millions of their favorite “targets”: Jews, Orthodox Christians (e.g., in Croatia), and Protestants (in northern Germany). For more information on these two world wars, please read the TTT newsletters entitled “World War I” and “World War II”. For more information about the Jesuits and their Knights of Malta, please read the four TTT newsletters entitled “Jesuits – Parts I, II, III & IV”. If you would like more information on how the West (especially the USA) financed both Nazi Germany and Communist Russia (i.e., the Soviet Union), then please order Antony Sutton’s books Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution and Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler.

1917—The Russian Revolution takes place. The Bolsheviks (Communists) seize power in Russia—funded by wealthy Knights of Malta in the United States. Later, two Jesuit-trained thugs, Joseph Stalin and Catholic Cardinal Agagianian, oversee the Soviet Gulag system. (Note: Both Stalin and Agagianian had been trained at the Jesuit Seminary in Tiflis, Soviet Georgia.) Millions of Russian Orthodox Christians are butchered at the hands of a totalitarian Police State. (Remember, the Vatican has long hated Orthodox Christians, and has slaughtered them whenever and wherever it could.)
During his childhood, Joseph was fascinated by stories he read telling of Georgian mountaineers who valiantly fought for Georgian independence. His favorite hero in these stories was a legendary mountain ranger named Koba, which became Stalin's first alias as a revolutionary. He graduated first in his class and at the age of 14 he was awarded a scholarship to the Seminary of Tiflis (Tbilisi, Georgia), a Jesuit institution (one of his classmates was Krikor Bedros Aghajanian, the future Grégoire-Pierre Cardinal Agagianian, see ) which he attended from 1894 and onward. Although his mother wanted him to be a priest (even after he had become leader of the Soviet Union), he attended seminary not because of any religious vocation, but because of the lack of locally available university education. In addition to the small stipend from the scholarship Stalin was paid for singing in the choir.
Stalin's involvement with the socialist movement (or, to be more exact, the branch of it that later became the communist movement) began at the seminary. During these school years, Stalin joined a Georgian Social-Democratic organization, and began propagating Marxism. Stalin quit the seminary in 1899 just before his final examinations; official biographies preferred to state that he was expelled. He then worked for a decade with the political underground in the Caucasus, experiencing repeated arrests and exile to Siberia between 1902 and 1917.
Stalin's revolutionary life began in 1898, at the age of nineteen. He had not yet heard of Lenin, but joined the Messame Dassy, one of the many petty bourgeois socialist groups active in Russia then. His father was a shoemaker and mother a washerwoman who wanted her son to become a priest and so sent him to a church school. His result was exceptionally brilliant and this got him to the Theological Seminary of Tiflis, Georgia, run by Jesuit monks. His attitude regarding the oppressive atmosphere of the Seminary and its priesthood was rebellions. But, he started studying Darwinian biology and Economic history already, books forbidden in the seminary, and became member of the Messame Dassy. He was expelled from the Seminary in 1889. For a time, he took a job in the Tiflis Observatory. It was in fact his secret shelter. From what little is known of this period, it appears that socialists in Georgia, including members of the Messame Dassy, were divided on almost similar lines as the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks - and that young Stalin was nearer to the Bolshevik line, without knowing it. In 1900, he and his colleagues organized the first May Day demonstration in Tiflis. Before the May Day in 1901, the tsarist police discovered and raided Stalin's ''secret office'' at the observatory and arrested others. But Stalin escaped and addressed the May Day rally in the centre of Tiflis. He was soon elected to the Social Democratic Committee of Tiflis and it sent him to organize the workers in Batum, where he took the name of Koba. Within just four months, as the tsarist police record says, ''As a result of Djugashvili's activities, Social Democratic organizations began to spring up in all the factories of Batum...'' After spending 18 months in tsarist prison, he was exiled to Siberia but escaped and arrived in Tiflis again in 1904. He ''travelled from one prison or place or exile to another'', in his own words, including Siberia, for several years between 1901 and 1917.

Clinton was also a member of Youth Order of DeMolay, but he never actually became a Freemason. He is a member of Kappa Kappa Psi's National Honorary Band Fraternity, Inc. With the aid of scholarships, Clinton attended the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., receiving a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service (B.S.F.S.) degree in 1968. It was at Georgetown that he interned for Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright. While in college he became a brother of Alpha Phi Omega and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
Upon graduation he won a Rhodes Scholarship to University College, Oxford where he studied government.
Martin: We're just about there. Let's talk about Bill Clinton. How do you see Bill Clinton in relationship to the Jesuits? And how do you see Al Gore? What can our readers glean from what you're saying about their power base?
Phelps: Well, we must remember: where did Bill Clinton come from? How did he become Governor? His father was a powerful political figure, because his mother was nothing. So, he came from nothing to being something, through some powerful political figure, probably the Kennedys.
It's rumored that John Kennedy was his father; could be. In any event, Clinton was trained by the Jesuits of Georgetown. He was the class president of his junior year, I believe. His senior year, he was not re-elected because the student body said he was 'too close to the Jesuit faculty'.
So, he was groomed by the Jesuits to be a powerful political leader. He was put in place in Arkansas, runs that scam there, while he's Governor, in the drug trade, belonging to Rome, working with Reagan in the drug trade, and Bush. Then he's made President.
Remember the picture of him at Georgetown, kneeling at the grave of Timothy Healy? That says it all. He is the complete and total pawn of the Jesuit Order ruling from Georgetown University. He does anything they want him to do. He hasn't resisted a thing.
That's why he's untouchable. He can commit any crime. He can do any act of evil, and never be prosecuted, because they'll call on traitors like Arlen Spector to vindicate him. And, of course, Arlen Spector was Spelly's Jew in the Kennedy assassination-evil, wicked, lifetime Senator from Pennsylvania, which shows me that there are no elections anymore. Nobody voted for Arlen Spector who I know. He's a gun-grabber. So, they made him a life-time Senator. They made Teddy Kennedy a lifetime Senator.
Bill Clinton is completely at their beck and call. He will get out of office. He will live happily ever after, unless he starts talking. If he starts talking, he's done. He is NOT a Baptist. He is loyal to the Jesuit Order.
Much of the change, students and faculty members agree, was wrought by the Rev. Timothy S. Healy, the late Jesuit priest who was president from 1976 to 1989. His red-brick accomplishments are there for all to see: dormitories, classroom buildings, a student center, new academic buildings and additions to the medical school and the law school. When Bill Clinton arrived in 1964, the campus had 34 buildings; today it has 86.
More important, Georgetown people say, Father Healy invested the university with academic excellence. "He revived intellectualism here," said Rob Pegoraro, a graduating senior from Tewksbury Township, N.J. "He was the first to push the university as one of the best in the country."
In the mid-1960's, Bill Clinton, a Protestant from the Deep South, was in a distinct minority at Georgetown, which was still a relatively exclusive Catholic university for men. Women were admitted to the Schools of Foreign Service, Nursing, and Languages and Linguistics, but the university did not become fully coeducational until 1969, when Georgetown College admitted women.

It should also be noted that President Bill Clinton was educated at the foremost Jesuit training center, Georgetown University. According to Saussy, Clinton's biographer David Maraniss said "the President owed his formidable skills as a criminal defendant to 'his training in casuistry at Georgetown University.'" Casuistry is equivocal to rationalization, "to cause something to seem reasonable, to provide plausible but untrue reasons for conduct."

Fidel Castro was born in the village of Brian in Cuba on August 13, 1926 into a rich family, the son of Angel Castro, who was a Spanish immigrant, and his cook Lina Ruz Gonzalez. In his early life Fidel Castro went to Jesuit schools and from there he attended the Jesuit preparatory school Colegio Belen in Havana.
Communist Dictator Castro shaking hands with his boss, Grandmaster and Prince of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, Andrew Willoughby Ninian Bertie
Controlled Opposition Fidel Castro was trained in Jesuit schools for seven years, put in power by the Jesuit’s Knights of Malta-controlled Skull and Bones CIA, and advised by a Jesuit, Fr. Armando Llorente during the revolution. Today, Castro continues to be subservient to 78th Grandmaster and Prince of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta Andrew Willoughby Ninian Bertie, cousin of Queen Elizabeth.
Fidel Castro was born on Aug. 13, 1926, on his family's prosperous sugar plantation near BirÃ¡n, Oriente Province. His father was an immigrant from Galicia, Spain. Castro studied in Jesuit schools in Oriente and in Havana, where one of his high school teachers, Father Armando Llorente, recalled him as "motivated, proud, different from the othersâ€¦. Fidel had a desire to distinguish himself primarily in sports; he liked to win regardless of efforts; he was little interested in parties or socializing and seemed alienated from Cuban society."
The life of Fidel Castro has always been bound up with prophesies, some of them strangely accurate. Probably the most known is the one made by [Jesuit] Father Antonio Llorente, Castro's teacher and spiritual adviser at the [Jesuit] Colegio de Belén. "Fidel Castro is a man of destiny," prophesied Llorente. "Behind him is the hand of God. He has a mission to fulfill and he will fulfill it against all obstacles." In this particular case, however, I have the feeling that Father Llorente was slightly confused about whose hand was behind Fidel Castro.
19. The student is involved with a gang or an antisocial group on the fringe of peer acceptance.
Yes. It has been extensively documented that, as soon as he joined Belén, he formed his own gang and began harassing other students. The Jesuit padres were terrorized. They had never seen a student like Fidel Castro. He continued his involvement with gangs when he became a Law student at the University of Havana.
Moreover, it seems that the Jesuit's efforts in nurturing the monster were not by mistake, but by design. Argentinean journalist Alfredo Muñoz Unsaín, for many years Havana's correspondent for France Press, tells a quite revealing story. Father Padre Arrupe visited Cuba in the early 1980s, and Muñoz Unsaín had the opportunity of talking to him on several occasions. In one of them, recalls the reporter, the Black Pope gave him the classic Jesuit spiel, ending by telling that he was very pleased with the work of the Jesuits in Latin America, particularly of the many important disciples they have developed who later reached prominent positions in all walks of life. "Well, I guess you are not proud of all of them," retorted Unsaín, and added, "Don't forget that Fidel Castro was one of your disciples." To what Arrupe answered, in the classic Jesuit way, by using a question to answer another one, "And what makes you think we are not proud of Fidel Castro?"
Castro, instead of being sent to an inadequate state school, went to Jesuit colleges in Santiago de Cuba and the capital Havana. Santiago is the capital of Oriente Province, from which the rebellion against Spain was launched. Havana was even then a centre of political and social corruption. The contrast and the lesson must have their impact on the growing boy.
Fidel Castro Ruz was born on August 13, 1926, on his family's successful sugar plantation near Birán, Oriente Province, Cuba. Castro's parents had not planned to send their young son to school, but he was so set on getting an education that he talked them into letting him go when he was only six or seven years old. Castro studied in Jesuit schools in Oriente and in Havana, Cuba. He was a motivated student who did well in agriculture, history, and Spanish, and he was also an exceptional athlete. Meanwhile he showed little interest in socializing.
In 1945 Castro entered law school at the University of Havana, where student activism, violence, and gang fights were common. Castro soon joined the activists and associated with one of the gangs, the Unión Insurreccional Revolucionaria. Although police suspected him of the murder of a rival student leader and other violent actions, nothing was proven. Castro developed a reputation for his personal ambition and public speaking ability, yet he never became a well-known student leader. On several occasions he was defeated in student elections.
This is from Cuba's official website on itself.† http://www.cubaheritage.com.† The specific web page below is the official Cuba biography of Fidel Castro.† Its specific URL is http://cubaheritage.com/subs.asp?sID=16&cID=3
Notice carefully from the article below:
1) Fidel Castro attended three Jesuit institutions.† College Lasalle and Colegio Dolores.† "Colegio" in Spanish is a high school or junior college.
2) † He then attended a Jesuit university for "preparatory" studies--obviously, what we would call a "general studies" program--at Colegio Belen.† I say, "general studies," because, after he matriculated from there, he went to law school.
3) Upon graduating from law school he joined the Orthodox or Christian Democrat party.† My European readers will instantly recognize that this is the Roman Catholic Party.† The first Christian Democrat party was begun in Italy under Pius XI in the 1920's.† Pius XI later disbanded that party, to put his full support behind Benito Mussolini and his Fascists.† The leader of the Christian Democrat party was then forced into exile, though he and Pope XI remained on good speaking terms.† It was in London that this leader met a fellow exile--Avro Manhattan.
Returning to Fidel Castro: Castro was obviously fully working for the Jesuits when he joined the Christian Democrat party as a young lawyer.† Not only that: by the time of the Cuban revolution in 1958-59, the Jesuits in Latin America were going fully Marxist-Leninist in ideology, as both Avro Manhattan and a former Jesuit priest, Malachi Martin, well document. Malachi Martin documents how that, in 1963, the Jesuits became fanatic, left-wing Communists, under Pedro Arrupe, himself a Marxist, and a great advocate of Fidel Castro.† Martin documents in his book: "The Jesuits and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church" how the Jesuits proceeded to foment Communist revolutions throughout Latin America and Africa, with Castro's aid.
Back to Castro and Communist Cuba: the "Calvary Contender," an independent online Baptist periodical, reports that Henry Morris, the writer of the Genesis Flood, says that the Pope recently visited Cuba.† He and Castro shared the same podium.† Pope John Paul II sounded as Communist as Castro.
Here is a blurb from the Calvary Contender:
"POPE & CASTRO SOUND ALIKE ON SOCIALISM-- Fidel Castro and Pope John Paul II met last Nov. Cuba is overwhelmingly Catholic. Catholics are allowed to join its officially atheist Communist Party. The Pope sounds very Castro-esque in his frequent condemnations of capitalism, consumerism and the suffering of the poor (11/19 HT). He told the Nov. UN World Food Summit that the imbalance between the rich and poor ("the haves and have-nots"?) cannot be tolerated. "
That link is at http://home.hiwaay.net/~contendr/1-1-97.html.
Notice above very carefully:
1) Cuba is overwhelmingly Roman Catholic.
2) Roman Catholics are allowed to join the atheist Communist Party.
3) Fidel Castro himself is a graduate of several Jesuit institutions, and is in good standing with the Pope.
4) He was a member of the Roman Catholic Christian Democrat party before starting his Marxist/Leninist revolution.
Albert Rivera, the former Jesuit priest who became a Protestant preacher, said that Castro is a fourth-degree, professed Jesuit.† The circumstantial evidence strongly corroborates that statement.
The Catholic Church in Cuba has only 720 priests, one for each 8,000 Catholics, compared with the U.S. ratio of one for every 760 Catholics. Moreover, Cuba's lower classes consider the church somewhat foreign; 400 of the priests are Spanish-born (most of them anti-Franco, despite Castro's accusation), and another 100 are foreigners from other countries. Although nearly 85% of Cuba's 6,700,000 population is nominally Catholic, regular church attendance is confined mostly to women and children. Castro himself went to Jesuit-run schools for eleven years and wore a religious medal as a guerrilla in the hills. But he is divorced (though not remarried) and does not go to church. His ten-year-old son, under his mother's influence, has become a Methodist.

George John Tenet (born January 5, 1953) was previously the Director of Central Intelligence for the United States Central Intelligence Agency and is Distinguished Professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at Georgetown University. Tenet held the position as the DCI from July 1997 to July 2004, making him the second-longest serving director in the agency's history — behind Allen Welsh Dulles — as well as one of the few DCIs to serve under two U.S. presidents of opposing political parties.
Tenet was born in Flushing, Queens, New York to Albanian-Greek immigrant parents John Tenet and Evangelina. Tenet was raised in Little Neck, Queens where he and his brother Bill worked as busboys in their family's diner (later renamed the Scobee Diner). He attended Public School 94, Louis Pasteur Junior High School 67, and Benjamin N. Cardozo High School (he was a classmate of Ron Jeremy and actor Reginald VelJohnson). Tenet holds a bachelor's degree (1976) from the Edmund A.

William Joseph Casey (March 13, 1913 – May 6, 1987) was the Director of Central Intelligence from 1981 to 1987. In this capacity he oversaw the entire US Intelligence Community and personally directed the Central Intelligence Agency.
A native of Queens, New York, Casey graduated from Fordham University in 1934 and earned a law degree from St. John's University School of Law in 1937. During World War II, he worked for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) — the predecessor to the CIA — and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious achievement. After practicing corporate law in New York, he served in the Nixon Administration as the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1971 to 1973; this position led to his being called as a prosecution witness against former Attorney General John N. Mitchell and former Commerce Secretary Maurice Stans in an influence-peddling case stemming from international financier Robert Vesco's $200,000 contribution to the Nixon reelection campaign.
William Joseph Casey powerful and controversial director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from 1981 to 1987 during the Ronald Reagan administration.
Casey graduated from Fordham University (B.S., 1934), studied at the Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., and took a law degree from St. John's University, Jamaica, N.Y. (1937).
William J. Casey, the Director of Central Intelligence until last February, whose role in the Iran-contra affair is under scrutiny in Congress, died of pneumonia yesterday in Glen Cove Community Hospital on Long Island. He was 74 years old. Mr. Casey died less than 24 hours after the first witness in Congressional hearings on the affair named him as having assisted in providing arms to Nicaraguan rebels after Congress forbade such support.
William Joseph Casey was born on March 13, 1913, in Elmhurst, Queens, the son of William J. and Blanche La Vigne Casey. He earned a bachelor's degree at Fordham University in 1934. After graduate work at the Catholic University of America, in Washington, he went on to earn a law degree at St. John's University in 1937.

William Joseph Casey 1913-87, American public official, b. New York City. After graduating from Fordham Univ. (B.S., 1934) he obtained a law degree from St. Johns Univ. (1937). During World War II he became an important official in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and helped supervise clandestine operations in Europe. After the war he became a successful tax lawyer. A conservative Republican, he held several high positions in the Nixon and Ford administrations, including chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (1973-74) and head of the Export-Import Bank (1975). In 1980 he served as chairman of President Reagan's campaign committee. Between 1981 and 1987, he served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), where he was responsible for an aggressive expansion of clandestine activities. He was one of the central figures in the complex sequence of covert activities known as the Iran-contra affair . On Dec. 15, 1986, shortly after the affair became public, Casey suffered a serious stroke. He died of brain cancer the next year without revealing the details of his involvement in the events.
From these various 'official' mainstream sources, I think we can now safely assume that the late William Joseph Casey, former head of the CIA, was indeed educated at Jesuit Fordham University NYC.

JUAN CARLOS DE BORBON Y BORBON was born on January 5th, 1938 in Rome, where the Royal Family was living at that time, having had to leave Spain when the Republic was proclaimed in 1931. His father, Don Juan de Borbon y Battenberg, Count of Barcelona and Head of the Spanish Royal Household ever since King Alfonso XIII had relinquished this status, and his mother, Dona Maria de las Mercedes de Borbon y Orleans.
At the express wish of his father, he was educated in Spain, which he visited for the first time at the age of ten. In 1954 he completed his Baccalaureate at the San Isidro School in Madrid, and in 1955 began his studies at the Academies and Military Colleges of the Army, the Navy and the Air Force. During this time he carried out his practice voyage as a midshipman on the training ship Juan Sebastian Elcano and qualified as a military pilot. In 1960.61 he completed his education at Madrid's Complutense University, where he studied constitutional and international law, economics and taxation.
San Isidro School in Madrid:
Colegio Imperial de Madrid (also known as the Colegio Imperial de la Compañía de Jesús or El Colegio de San Pedro y San Pablo de la Compañía de Jesús en la Corte) was the name of a Jesuit teaching institution in Madrid.
Founded at the end of the sixteenth century and reached its peak in the seventeenth century, acquiring the title of "Imperial College" thanks to the patronage of the Empress Maria, daughter of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor and the wife of Maximilian II, Holy Roman Emperor. Philip IV of Spain is considered the founder of the Reales Estudios in 1625. Subjects included theology, philosophy, geography, and the sciences. Lope de Vega, Francisco de Quevedo and Pedro Calderón de la Barca can be counted amongst the institution's pupils. The institution's library served as the most important one in Madrid until the 18th century, large part of which is now shared by the Universidad Complutense y la Real Academia de la Historia.
When the Society of Jesus was suppressed in 1767, Charles III of Spain re-established the university as the Reales Estudios de San Isidro in 1770, as a continuation of the studies there. The Jesuits returned from 1816-1820; 1823-1834. Between 1835 and 1845, it became once again a lay institution, with the name of Estudios Nacionales, incorporating with the Universidad Literaria de Madrid.
Next door, the Instituto de San Isidro once went by the name of Colegio Imperial and, from the 16th century on, was where many of the country's leading figures were schooled by the Jesuits.

Timothy Francis Leary (October 22, 1920 – May 31, 1996) was an American writer, psychologist, modern pioneer and advocate of psychedelic drug research and use, and one of the first people whose remains have been sent into space. An icon of 1960s counterculture, Leary is most famous as a proponent of the therapeutic and spiritual benefits of LSD. He coined and popularized the catch phrase "Turn on, tune in, drop out."
Leary was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, an only child of an Irish American dentist who abandoned the family when Leary was 13. He graduated from Springfield's Classical High School. Leary attended three different colleges and was disciplined at each. He studied for two years at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Leary received a bachelor's degree in psychology at the University of Alabama in 1943. An obituary of Leary in the New York Times said he had a "discipline problem" there as well, but that he "finally earned his bachelor's degree in the U. S. Army during World War II," when he served as a sergeant in the Medical Corps. Leary, who later became a counterculture icon and LSD proponent, dropped out of the class of 1943 at The United States Military Academy at West Point. He received a master's degree at Washington State University in 1946, and a Ph.D. in psychology at the University of California, Berkeley in 1950. The title of Leary's Ph.D. dissertation was, "The Social Dimensions of Personality: Group Structure and Process." He went on to become an Assistant Professor at Berkeley (1950-1955), a director of psychiatric research at the Kaiser Family Foundation (1955-1958), and a lecturer in psychology at Harvard University (1959-1963). He was officially expelled from the faculty of Harvard for failing to conduct his scheduled class lectures; however, his contribution to the spreading popularity of then-legal psychedelic substances among Harvard students due to his research and other activities played a large part in the move to dismiss him.
The College of the Holy Cross is an exclusively undergraduate Roman Catholic liberal arts college located in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA. Holy Cross is the oldest Roman Catholic college in New England and one of the oldest in the United States.
Opened as a school for boys under the auspices of the Society of Jesus, it was the first Jesuit college in New England. Today, Holy Cross is one of 28 member institutions of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities and is part of a consortium with other Worcester colleges, including Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Clark University. On July 1, 2000, Rev. Michael C. McFarland, S.J. became the current president of the college. As of June 2007, the Holy Cross endowment was valued at $660 million.
Leary in '42 at Holy Cross College.
Less well-known is the fact that Leary's college career began at Holy Cross. Indeed, in some ways, his lifelong battle with authority was prefigured by his tenure on Mount St. James.
Leary came to Holy Cross in the fall of 1938. Living on the fourth floor of Fenwick Hall in room 38, he took courses in Latin, Latin composition, English, English composition, religion, history, math and French. By his second semester, according to Robert Greenfield's Timothy Leary: A Biography, Leary was taking bets on sports events and running a continuous poker game. He did so well that he was able to buy himself a car, which enabled him to explore the bars of Worcester and pick up local girls. Soon he was traveling to Boston and New York. It was at Holy Cross that he is said to have lost his faith in Catholicism.
The summer after his first year, Leary passed the entrance examination for West Point and planned to spend the intervening time in New York. His mother insisted, however, that he return to Holy Cross, and apparently his second year was another one of little study and much drinking and womanizing. The College has no records of Leary being disciplined, however, and his transcript simply states that he voluntarily withdrew.

Patrick Joseph Buchanan (born November 2, 1938) is a U.S. politician, author, syndicated columnist and broadcaster. He ran in the 2000 presidential election on the Reform Party ticket. He also sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1992 and 1996.
Buchanan was a senior advisor to three American presidents, Nixon, Ford and Reagan, and was an original host on CNN's Crossfire. He also co-founded The American Conservative magazine and launched The American Cause, a paleoconservative foundation. He has been published in many publications, including Human Events, National Review, The Nation and Rolling Stone.
On American television, he is currently a political commentator on the MSNBC cable network and a regular on The McLaughlin Group.
Buchanan was born on November 2, 1938, in Washington, D.C., the son of Catherine Elizabeth (née Crum) (Charleroi, Pennsylvania, 23 December 1911 – Oakton, Virginia, 18 September 1995), a nurse and a homemaker, and William Baldwin Buchanan (Virginia, 15 August 1905 – Washington, D. C., January 1988), a partner in an accounting firm (whose paternal grandmother was the daughter of a Confederate Officer), who married on 28 December 1936. Buchanan had six brothers (Brian, Henry, James, John, Thomas, and William Jr.) and two sisters (Kathleen and Bay). One sister, Bay Buchanan, served as U.S. Treasurer under Ronald Reagan. Buchanan has German, Scots Irish, and Irish ancestry. He had a great-grandfather who fought in the American Civil War on the Confederate side. He expresses pride in his Southern heritage. He is also a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and admires Robert E. Lee.
Buchanan was baptized into the Roman Catholic Church and has remained Catholic throughout his life, attending the traditional Latin Mass. He has also spent most of his education at Catholic institutions. He attended Blessed Sacrament School, the Jesuit-run Gonzaga College High School, and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. In 1992, Buchanan told a Washington Post reporter that he once lobbed an apple at a prostitute on I Street while a high school student. "This is the way our world was," he remarked. "I'm not an angry man. I'm a very happy, contented human being." Buchanan graduated from Gonzaga with a 98 average. He graduated cum laude from Georgetown with degrees in English and Philosophy in 1961.
Buchanan attended a Catholic elementary and high school, following in the steps of his father and brothers. Deciding to stay in Washington and to continue at a Catholic school, he enrolled in Georgetown University in 1956, studying for a degree in English.
While suspended from Georgetown, Buchanan learned accounting and took a serious look at his future. He decided to pursue a career in journalism and returned to complete his college education with a more mature attitude. After he graduated with honors from Georgetown in 1961, he entered the journalism school at Columbia University.
Buchanan attended Catholic schools and in 1961 received an A.B. degree in English from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
It's remarkable that Buchanan however that, although his Jesuit education is evidenced by confirmations of so many different sources, he doesn't show up as a Georgetown alumnus on Georgetown's very own website.

John Forbes Kerry (born December 11, 1943) is the junior United States Senator from Massachusetts, in his fourth term of office. As the Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, he was defeated in the 2004 presidential election by the Republican incumbent President George W. Bush. Senator Kerry is currently the Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. He is a Vietnam Veteran, and was a spokesman for Vietnam Veterans Against the War when he returned home from service. Before entering Senate, he served as a District Attorney and Lt. Governor of Massachusetts under Michael Dukakis, also a future Democratic Presidential nominee.
Law school and early political career (1972–1985)
After Kerry's 1972 defeat, he and his wife bought a house in Lowell. He spent some time working as a fundraiser for the Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE), an international humanitarian organization. He decided that the best way for him to continue in public life was to study law. In September 1973, he entered Boston College Law School at Newton, Massachusetts. In July 1974, while attending law school, Kerry was named executive director of Mass Action, a Massachusetts advocacy association.

An Alum's Presidential Bid Falls Short
The 2004 election drew special scrutiny at Boston College, the alma mater of Democratic nominee US Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), a 1976 graduate of BC Law School. Kerry's old moot-court coach was following this week's vote closely to see if his former charge, impressive in the presidential debates, would seal the final argument at the ballot box.
"He's the first student of mine to run for the presidency, so I'm watching with great interest," BC Law Advocacy Programs Director Thomas Carey JD '65, who coached 1976 grad Kerry on BC's National Moot Court Team, said last week.
The skill Kerry showed in the presidential debates he honed at BC Law as a winner of the Grimes Moot Court Competition in his second year, and as a 3L on the National Moot Court Team that won the New England regional championships, said Carey, who teaches appellate advocacy as a part-time member of the BC Law faculty.
"Even more specifically," McIntyre said, "John and Teresa hosted a dinner for Fr. Leahy and me and for a small group of alumni in Washington a few years ago at his home in Georgetown. It was a relatively small group, maybe 20 or 25 people, but it was very, very cordial and warm event. John spoke about Boston College and Teresa spoke about her and her family's association with the Jesuits over the years starting in South Africa."

Robert "Bobby" Baer (born July 1, 1952), is an author and former case officer at the Central Intelligence Agency.
Baer was raised in Aspen, Colorado and aspired to become a professional skier. After a poor academic performance during his freshman year at high school, his mother sent him to Indiana's Culver Military Academy. In 1976, after graduating from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service and entering the University of California, Berkeley, Baer decided to join the CIA's Directorate of Operations (DO) as a case officer. Upon admittance to the CIA, Baer engaged in a year's training, which included a four-month paramilitary course.
As a teenager in Aspen, Colorado, Robert Baer wanted to be a professional ski racer. His mother, dismayed at his low academic grades, packed him off to military school. Eight years later, in 1976, after graduating from Georgetown University School of Foreign Services in Washington DC, he decided to join the CIA, which in those days was much in the news as scandal followed scandal. For Baer, the CIA "seemed for a moment like romance itself". The agency is divided into two houses, a Directorate of Intelligence (DI) and a Directorate of Operations (DO), the latter made up of information collectors, "case officers". Baer was accepted into the DO and began a year-long training cycle, including a four-month paramilitary course.
Unfortunately, Robert Baer is not mentioned on Georgetown official site as being an SFS alumnus.

King Abdullah II bin Al Hussein (Arabic: الملك عبدالله الثاني ابن الحسين) is the King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. He became king of Jordan on February 7th, 1999 after the passing of his father King Hussein. King Abdullah is part of the Hashemite family and is reportedly the 43rd-generation direct descendant of prophet Muhammad. Abdullah's parents were King Hussein and Princess Muna al-Hussein, born Antoinette (Toni) Avril Gardiner.
Abdullah was schooled at St. Edmund's School in Surrey, England and Eaglebrook School and Deerfield Academy in the United States of America. His university training was at Pembroke College, Oxford. In 1980, Abdullah left Pembroke and entered the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in the United Kingdom as a cadet. He joined the 13th/18th Royal Hussars (Queen Mary's Own) upon commission as a Second Lieutenant the following year. King Abdullah retains close links with the British Army and is the Colonel-in-Chief of The Light Dragoons, a tank regiment and the successor to the 13th/18th Royal Hussars. In 1987, he completed an advanced studies and research program at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. He took full command of the Jordanian special forces in November 1993, becoming a Major general. He commanded the special forces until 1996, when he was instructed to reorganize the special forces and other special units under the special operation command SOCOM. Upon assuming his constitutional powers, he became the commander-in-chief. King Abdullah holds the ranks of Field Marshal in the Jordan Arab Army and Marshal of the Royal Jordanian Air Force.
Georgetown Honors His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan
His Majesty will receive an honorary degree
Washington, D.C. - Georgetown University honors His Majesty King Abdullah II Bin Al-Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan today with a Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa.
"We are pleased to honor King Abdullah II in recognition of his skillful statesmanship, outstanding achievements in modernizing Jordan, and his extraordinary leadership in promoting inter-faith understanding," said Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia.
Since his ascension to the throne in 1999, King Abdullah II has continued his late father's commitment to creating a strong and positive moderating role for Jordan within the Arab region and the world, and has worked to establish a just and lasting comprehensive solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
His Majesty has exerted extensive effort to insuring sustainable levels of economic growth and social development aimed at improving the standard of living of all Jordanians with his "Jordan First" campaign. He is also working towards modernizing Jordan's information technology and educational systems.
Under his reign, Jordan was admitted to the World Trade Organization, and ratified agreements for the establishment of a Free Trade Area with the United States of America, the European Union, the European Free Trade Association countries, and sixteen Arab countries. As a result, Jordan has been cited as an outstanding example of development in the Middle East and North Africa region.
King Abdullah II has also been involved in the drive for national administrative reform, as well as governmental transparency and accountability. In addition, he has been working on the advancement of civil liberties making Jordan one of the most progressive countries in the Middle East. He has also been involved in enacting the necessary legislations that guarantee women a full role in the Kingdom's socio-economic and political life.
In addition, His Majesty launched the "Amman Message" in November 2004, which proclaims Islam's tolerance, humanity and rejection of extremism. Citing specific Qur'anic passages, the Amman Message reminds the world of the true values of Islam and promotes understanding of a religion that honors all human beings and seeks common ground among different faiths and peoples.
King Abdullah II joined the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in the United Kingdom in 1980, and was commissioned as Second Lieutenant in 1981. In 1982, he attended Oxford University where he completed a one-year Special Studies course in Middle Eastern Affairs, and in 1987 he attended Georgetown’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service as a Mid-Career Fellow. There he completed an Advanced Study and Research program in International Affairs, part of the Master of Science in Foreign Service program.
His Majesty became Major-General of the Jordanian Special Forces in 1998, and served in the official capacity of Regent during the reign of his father, the late King Hussein. He is married to Queen Rania and the Royal Couple have four children.

James Warren "Jim" Jones (May 13, 1931 – November 18, 1978) was the American founder of the Peoples Temple, which became synonymous with group suicide after the November 18, 1978 mass murder-suicide by poison in their isolated agricultural intentional community called Jonestown, located in Guyana. Over nine hundred people died from cyanide poisoning or gunshot wounds in the aftermath of Jones ordering his men to kill visiting Congressman Leo Ryan and numerous members of his entourage.
Jones was born in Crete, Indiana to Lynetta Putnam and James Thurman Jones. He graduated from Richmond High School in Richmond, Indiana. He became a preacher in the 1950s. He obtained a bachelors degree at Joliet Junior College in 1961, and after graduate school at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, Jim sold pet monkeys door-to-door to raise the money to fund his own church  that would be named Wings of Deliverance. He later renamed his church the Peoples Temple, which was located in Indianapolis. He became an ordained minister in 1964 in the mainstream Christian denomination, Disciples of Christ. The church was distinctive for its equal treatment of African Americans, and many of them became members of the church. He started a struggle for racial equality and social justice, which he dubbed apostolic socialism. After leaving Indiana, the Peoples Temple cult built its home in Redwood Valley, California, because Jones believed it was one of the few places in the world likely to survive a nuclear holocaust. Jones authored a booklet, called "The Letter Killeth" pointing out what he felt were the contradictions, absurdities, and atrocities in the Bible, but also stating that the Bible contained great truths. He was particularly fascinated with his ability to manipulate people. Throughout the years, the young Jones perfected his craft and was very skilled in his new found art. He claimed to be an incarnation of Jesus, Akhenaten, Buddha, Lenin, and Father Divine and performed supposed miracle healings to attract new members. Members of Jones' church called Jones "Father" and believed that their movement was the solution to the problems of society, and many did not distinguish Jones from the movement. The group gradually moved away from the mainstream.
"Rev" Jim Jones (1931-1979).
"Rev." Jim Jones (Mr. Cool-Aid) was a powerful warlock and a well trained Jesuit. On Nov. 18, 1978, in Jones town, Guyana, he ordered 900 of his brainwashed followers to commit suicide by drinking Cool-Aid.
Jonestown, Guyana, scene of the mass suicide of 900 men, women and children.
[Mark Lane (personal friend and confidant to the infamous Jesuit: Jim Jones), as attorney for James Earl Ray, sent his key witness to Jonestown the day before the Jonestown massacre. Fortunately, for her, she didn't go].
The secret oath of the Jesuits order is recounted, including all sorts of promises to murder and destroy heretics (true Christians) for the Pope. Only key Jesuits supposedly take this oath before infiltrating governments and assassinating leaders. Alberto also recounts the unsuccessful assassination attempts on his life including one from a dentist! (I never did trust those guys.) We're told that one of Rome's best agents was the flamboyant healing evangelist of the 1970s: Kathryn Kuhlman who pushed for ecumenical unity among Jews, Protestants, and Catholics. Worse, the Vatican planned the infamous Jonestown massacre in Guyana in 1978. Jim Jones was a Jesuit under that secret oath with instructions from Rome to commit mass murder in order to discredit Christian camps. According to Alberto, "The cry went up that politicians should pass laws forbidding groups from setting up retreats. This way, Bible believers would have to hide when the great wave of persecution from Rome begins." Tim Clark tells Alberto "...we've been betrayed! Why haven't our Christian leaders warned us? They never say anything about it on television." Alberto replies,"Because many are not real Christians (like Alberto, who has now become a REAL one)!"
It is well documented that Jonestown was a C.I.A. government medical experiment and a government cult. Many C.I.A. agents, doctors, and nurses lived on that infamous government cult compound. The Charles Manson atrocities, Son of Sam, and Sun Myung Moon were all linked and were also C.I.A. government cults, designed by the government to appear through the media’s one-sided distortions, sensationalism, propaganda, and lies to look like Christians, so that the Vatican would have an easier job of exterminating true Christians in the eye of the general public. This strategy was successfully used by the Vatican in Nazi Germany against the Jews. They made the Jews look dangerous and evil. The public fell for it, just as some of the public have fallen for the media’s smear campaigns against today’s fundamental born-again Christians.
Strong documentation has it that in Jonestown, uncooperative residents (true government cultists) were captured by Nazi, Catholic trained C.I.A. armed guards who formed two concentric circles around the pavilion. The guards dragged them to the vat of poison where they were injected and somehow labelled involuntary (an essential procedure necessary to document the results of the experiment).6 This was not a Christian retreat. This was a Nazi Catholic C.I.A. government compound. Jim Jones was not a Christian, but he was a well paid, completely U.N. government subsidized Vatican informer, to Cuba, Russia, and the U.S., a go-between patsy. When the Vatican C.I.A. was through with Jim, their guinea pigs, and their experiments, they simply did them in as they have historically done with so many of their own. No problem for them to have an occasional burning, gassing, or poisoning as you have seen with your own eyes in World War II, Jonestown, and now the Waco incident.
No conclusive evidence unfortunately...

John C. Gannon '66
John Gannon came to Mount St. James at a time when President Kennedy was issuing his call to public service. In the 36 years since his graduation from Holy Cross, John Gannon has answered that call continually and courageously, with dedication, loyalty and intellectual rigor.
A man for others from the start, he left Worcester in 1966 for Jamaica and service in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. It was there that he met his wife, Mary Ellen. The romance that blossomed in the Caribbean has sustained him for over 30 years and produced three children, Jonathan, Mark and Elizabeth.
After serving as a naval officer in Southeast Asia, John earned his Ph.D. from Washington University. He began his government career soon after, working as a political analyst specializing in Latin America. Over the course of 24 years with the Central Intelligence Agency, John served as Deputy Director for Intelligence, Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, and Assistant Director of Central Intelligence for Analysis and Production. Serving at the highest level of the nation's intelligence structure, John has become known in his field as the consummate professional. To quote CIA director, George J. Tenet, "John's record of accomplishment - in the intelligence field and in life - is truly remarkable. … All of us owe him a great debt of gratitude, and so will the generations that come after us."
Currently Vice-Chairman of the Intellibridge Corporation, John oversees all analytical and client services for the company. Active in his community, he was elected to the Falls Church City Council and was appointed Chairman of his city's planning commission. He also served on the city's Economic Development Commission. And he hasn't forgotten his Jesuit roots, serving on the board of directors at the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University.
And yet, for all his accomplishments, John remains a man of humility, caring and humor. As one of his classmates recently wrote, "John embodies the ideals that Holy Cross seeks to inculcate?kindness, decency, respect for the dignity of all people."
For his scholarship, wisdom and guidance, and for his lifetime commitment to answering the call to duty, the College of the Holy Cross presents the Sanctae Crucis Award to John Gannon.

Vernon A. Walters (January 3, 1917 – February 10, 2002) was a United States Army officer and a diplomat. Most notably, he served from 1972 to 1976 as Deputy Director of Central Intelligence and from 1985 to 1989 as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Walters rose to the rank of lieutenant general in the U.S. Army and is a member of the Military Intelligence Hall of Fame.
Walters was born in New York City. His father was a British immigrant and insurance salesman. From age 6, Walters lived in Britain and France with his family. At 16, he returned to the United States and worked for his father as an insurance claims adjuster and investigator.
His formal education beyond elementary school consisted entirely of boarding school instruction at Stonyhurst College, a 400-year-old Jesuit school in Lancashire, England. He did not attend a university. In later years, he seemed to enjoy reflecting on the fact that he had risen fairly high and accomplished much despite a near-total lack of formal academic training.
He spoke six Western European languages fluently, and knew the basics of several others. He was also fluent in Chinese and Russian. His simultaneous translation of a speech by United States President Richard Nixon in France prompted President Charles de Gaulle to say to the president, "You gave a magnificent speech, but your interpreter was eloquent."
Vernon Anthony Walters was born in New York City on January 3, 1917, and attended Stonyhurst College in England. He joined the United States Army in 1941, and served in North Africa and Italy during World War II, retiring in 1976 as a lieutenant general.

Prescott Sheldon Bush (May 15, 1895 – October 8, 1972) was a United States Senator from Connecticut and a Wall Street executive banker with Brown Brothers Harriman. He was the father of former U.S. President George H. W. Bush and the grandfather of current President George W. Bush.
Bush was born in Columbus, Ohio to Flora Sheldon and Samuel Prescott Bush. Samuel Bush was a railroad executive, then a steel company president, and during World War I, also a federal government official in charge of coordination and assistance to major weapons contractors.
Wikipedia does not mention that Prescott Bush attended Stonyhurst College from 1908-1913, but instead states:
Bush attended the Douglas School in Columbus and then St. George's School in Newport, Rhode Island from 1908 to 1913. In 1913, he enrolled at Yale University, officially creating a long-standing family legacy; four subsequent generations of Bushes have been Yale alumni. Prescott Bush was admitted to the ΖΨ fraternity while at Yale and Skull and Bones secret society. Prescott Bush has long been implicated in the society's alleged theft of the skull of Native American leader Geronimo, when three Bonesmen were stationed at Fort Sill. Some historians, and Cecil Adams, regard this claim as false.
Prescott Bush played varsity golf, football, and baseball, and was president of the Yale Glee Club.
On other sites we find however:
After attending the Douglas School in Columbus and St. George's School in Newport, Rhode Island as well as the famous Stonyhurst College in England (where he designed the boys' golf course still in use today) from 1908 to 1913, Bush entered Yale University. There, he played varsity golf, football, and baseball, and was president of the Yale Glee Club. (He was the best close-harmony man in the class of 1917). His devotion to singing at Yale would remain strong his entire life, evidenced in part by his founding of the Yale Glee Club Associates, an alumni group, in 1937. On May 18, 1916 he was "tapped" to join the Skull and Bones society at Yale. Other new "Bonesmen" that year were E. Roland Harriman, H. S. Fenimore Cooper (grandson of James Fenimore Cooper), Knight Wooley (son of Ulysses Grant Wooley), Ellery James, and Henry Neil Mallon. A Skull and Bones legend tells of Bush digging up the Skull of Geronimo (1918) and "donating" it to the society.
After attending the Douglas School in Columbus and St. George's School in Newport, Rhode Island, Prescott Bush studied at the renowned Jesuit school, Stonyhurst College in Clitheroe, Lancashire, England from 1908 to 1913. Arguably, one of his greatest legacies at Stonyhurst was designing the boys' golf course (which is still in use today,) and it's where he gained his lifelong passion for the game. In 1914, he enrolled at Yale University, starting a family tradition of higher education, as his son, former president George H.W. Bush, and his grandson, current President George W. Bush are both Yale alumni.

Prescott Sheldon Bush studied under the Jesuits of Stonyhurst for five years from 1908-1913 then went on to Yale where he kissed the slippered toe of the Pope and bowed before Don Quixote who is really Ignatius Loyola (Cervantes based his character on his contemporary Loyola who he studied with at the University of Salamanca) and dubbed a Knight of Eulogia in the tomb of Skull and Bones-the Brotherhood of Death who tap individuals from certain backgrounds and lineage to initiate them into the Jesuits' Illuminati.

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle, DL (22 May 1859–7 July 1930) was a Scottish author most noted for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes, which are generally considered a major innovation in the field of crime fiction, and for the adventures of Professor Challenger. He was a prolific writer whose other works include science fiction stories, historical novels, plays and romances, poetry, and non-fiction.
Arthur Conan Doyle was born on 22 May 1859, in Edinburgh, Scotland, to an English father, Charles Altamont Doyle, and an Irish mother, Mary Foley, who had married in 1855. Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname is uncertain. Conan Doyle's father was an artist, as were his paternal uncles (one of whom was Richard Doyle), and his paternal grandfather John Doyle.
Conan Doyle was sent to the Roman Catholic Jesuit preparatory school St. Mary's Hall, Stonyhurst, at the age of eight. He then went on to Stonyhurst College, but by the time he left the school in 1875, he had rejected Christianity to become an agnostic.
From 1876 to 1881 he studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, including a period working in the town of Aston (now a district of Birmingham). While studying, he also began writing short stories; his first published story appeared in Chambers's Edinburgh Journal before he was 20. Following his term at university, he served as a ship's doctor on a voyage to the West African coast. He completed his doctorate on the subject of tabes dorsalis in 1885.
Conan Doyle's education took place at home and in a local Edinburgh school until, at the age of nine, he was sent to the Jesuit preparatory school of Hodder in Lancashire. Hodder was attached to the Jesuit secondary school of Stonyhurst, and it was to the latter that Conan Doyle moved two years later. The time spent at Stonyhurst was not a particularly happy one, although the records show that the young Doyle was a better than average performer. The spartan surroundings and the Jesuit discipline did not appeal to the young ACD, and it appears that he experienced his fair share of corporal punishment. Fortunately, Conan Doyle's mother struggled to meet the expense of his education at Stonyhurst, rather than dedicate the boy's life to the Jesuits in return for a free education.
It was during his Stonyhurst years that Conan Doyle began seriously to examine his religious beliefs and, by the time he left the school in 1875, he had firmly rejected Catholicism, and probably Christianity in general, and had become an agnostic. The turmoil and questioning which must have taken place in his own mind is dealt with in some detail in the semi-autobiographical novel, The Stark Munro Letters.
After leaving Stonyhurst, Conan Doyle spent a further year with the Jesuits in Feldkirch, Austria, before returning to Edinburgh to study medicine at the University from 1876 to 1881. Besides providing him with a medical degree, Edinburgh University also brough Conan Doyle into contact with two characters who were to be important models for future fictional creations: Professor Rutherford, whose Assyrian beard, prodigious voice, enormous chest, and singular manner became translated into Professor George Edward Challenger of The Lost World; and Dr Joseph Bell, whose amazing deductions concerning the history of his patients were to provide the ideas behind the deductive skills of Sherlock Holmes.

E. Gerald Corrigan (born June 13, 1941) is an American banker and former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He is currently a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs.
Born in Waterbury, Connecticut, Corrigan earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Fairfield University in 1963. He received a master's degree in 1965 and a Ph.D. in 1971, both in economics, from Fordham University.
In 1968, he began his career at the New York Federal Reserve, where he remained for twenty-five years, becoming Vice President in 1976, before becoming special assistant to Federal Reserve Board Chairman, Paul Volcker in Washington, D.C. He went on to serve as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis from 1980 to 1984 and New York Federal Reserve President from 1985 until 1993.
From 1991 to 1993 he was Chairman of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.
He joined Goldman Sachs in 1994, and has been a Managing Director since 1996, where he serves as co-chair of both the Risk Committee and the Global Compliance and Controls Committee.
E. Gerald Corrigan, Ph.D. (GSAS ’65, ’71), has made a $5 million gift to Fordham University, funding critical initiatives at both Fordham College at Rose Hill and the Graduate School of Business Administration (GBA). The gift will create an endowed professorship, the Corrigan Chair in International Business and Finance, at GBA, and will further endow the existing E. Gerald Corrigan Endowed Scholarship Fund.
“This gift is especially meaningful given Dr. Corrigan's world class reputation, his distinguished career, and his many accomplishments,” said Howard P. Tuckman, Ph.D., dean of Fordham’s Graduate School of Business Administration. “We are thrilled that his generosity will help the Fordham business schools achieve their joint goal of having a world-recognized finance and economics program and providing an outstanding education for their students.”
John N. Tognino (FCLS ’75), chairman of the Fordham University Board of Trustees, announced the gift at the Sixth Annual Fordham Founder’s Award Dinner, held at the Waldorf=Astoria in Manhattan on March 26. Because Corrigan was traveling in Russia on the evening of the Fordham Founder’s Award Dinner, his daughter, Karen Corrigan, accepted the University’s thanks on his behalf.
The Corrigan chair will add to Fordham’s reputation as a global business center, with a focus on global economic and business research and policy. Working with Fordham's partners in China, Spain, Belgium and Ireland, the chair will allow students to benefit from the experience of problem-solving in the areas of global entrepreneurship, business and government policy and consulting strategy. Corrigan's gift will also further endow the E. Gerald Corrigan Endowed Scholarship Fund, which has provided significant scholarship support to minority students for nearly a decade. With this gift, the fund will now also support academic research assistantships at Fordham College at Rose Hill.
Corrigan received his master’s and doctoral degrees in economics from Fordham’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He is a former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and has been a managing director of Goldman Sachs since 1994. Corrigan has served on the Fordham University Board of Trustees, and has been a mentor and educator to Fordham students.
Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to approximately 15,800 students in its five undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx, Manhattan and Tarrytown, and the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.
E. GERALD CORRIGAN, a veteran of the Federal Reserve System, became chief executive officer of the New York Fed and vice chairman of the FOMC on January 1, 1985 at the age of 43.
Prior to his appointment, Mr. Corrigan was president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank for four and a half years.
Mr. Corrigan was born in June 1941 in Waterbury, Connecticut. He earned a bachelor of social sciences degree in economics from Fairfield University, Fairfield, Connecticut in 1963. He received a master of arts degree in 1965 and a doctor of philosophy degree in 1971, both in economics, from Fordham University.
His career at the New York Fed began in 1968 when he joined the domestic research division as an economist, after teaching at Fordham University in 1967-68. From 1968 to 1979 he served in a variety of staff and official positions including vice president for planning and domestic open market operations.
In August 1979, he went on leave from the Bank to become special assistant to Federal Reserve Board Chairman Paul Volcker in Washington, DC. While there, he was named chairman of the Basle Committee on Banking Supervision by the governors of the central banks of the Group of Ten countries. The Committee provides a forum for regular cooperation among its member countries on banking supervisory matters.
Mr. Corrigan was instrumental in establishing, and also served as co-chairman of, the Russian-American Banking Forum. This organization was set up in June 1992 to assist Russia in the development of its banking and financial system infrastructure.
After nearly 25 years of service in the Federal Reserve System, Mr. Corrigan stepped down as president of the New York Fed on July 19, 1993. In July 1993, President Clinton appointed Mr. Corrigan to head the newly established Russian-American Enterprise Fund.

René Descartes (French IPA: [ʁə'ne de'kaʁt]) (March 31, 1596 – February 11, 1650), also known as Renatus Cartesius (latinized form), was a highly influential French philosopher, mathematician, scientist, and writer. He has been dubbed the "Father of Modern Philosophy" and the "Father of Modern Mathematics", and much of subsequent Western philosophy is a reaction to his writings, which have been closely studied from his time down to the present day. His influence in mathematics is also apparent, the Cartesian coordinate system that is used in plane geometry and algebra being named for him, and he was one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution.
Descartes frequently sets his views apart from those of his predecessors. In the opening section of the Passions of the Soul, a treatise on the Early Modern version of what are now commonly called emotions, he goes so far as to assert that he will write on his topic "as if no one had written on these matters before". Many elements of his philosophy have precedents in late Aristotelianism, the revived Stoicism of the 16th century, or in earlier philosophers like St. Augustine. In his natural philosophy, he differs from the Schools on two major points: first, he rejects the analysis of corporeal substance into matter and form; second, he rejects any appeal to ends—divine or natural—in explaining natural phenomena. In his theology, he insists on the absolute freedom of God’s act of creation.
Descartes was a major figure in 17th century continental rationalism, later advocated by Baruch Spinoza and Gottfried Leibniz, and opposed by the empiricist school of thought consisting of Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley, and Hume. Leibniz, Spinoza and Descartes were all versed in mathematics as well as philosophy, and Descartes and Leibniz contributed greatly to science as well. As the inventor of the Cartesian coordinate system, Descartes founded analytic geometry, the bridge between algebra and geometry, crucial to the invention of calculus and analysis. Descartes's reflections on mind and mechanism began the strain of western thought that much later, impelled by the invention of the electronic computer and by the possibility of machine intelligence, blossomed into the Turing test and related thought. His most famous statement is: Cogito ergo sum (French: Je pense, donc je suis; English: I think, therefore I am), found in §7 of part I of Principles of Philosophy (Latin) and in part IV of Discourse on the Method (French).
Descartes was born in La Haye en Touraine (now Descartes), Indre-et-Loire, France. When he was one year old, his mother Jeanne Brochard died of tuberculosis. His father Joachim was a judge in the High Court of Justice. At the age of eleven, he entered the Jesuit Collège Royal Henry-Le-Grand at La Flèche. After graduation, he studied at the University of Poitiers, earning a Baccalauréat and License in law in 1616, in accordance with his father's wishes that he should become a lawyer.
René Descartes was one of the first and most illustrious students of the school from 1607 to
1615, and introduced the school in his Discourse on Method under the phrase "I was in one of the most famous schools of Europe".

Michel Foucault (pronounced[help] [miʃɛl fuko]) (October 15, 1926 – June 25, 1984) was a French philosopher, historian, critic and sociologist. He held a chair at the Collège de France, giving it the title "History of Systems of Thought," and taught at the University of California, Berkeley.
Michel Foucault is best known for his critical studies of various social institutions, most notably psychiatry, medicine, the human sciences, and the prison system, as well as for his work on the history of human sexuality. Foucault's work on power, and the relationships among power, knowledge, and discourse, has been widely discussed and applied. Sometimes described as postmodernist or post-structuralist, in the 1960s he was more often associated with the structuralist movement. Foucault later distanced himself from structuralism and always rejected the post-structuralist and postmodernist labels.
Foucault was born on October 15, 1926 in Poitiers as Paul-Michel Foucault to a notable provincial family. His father, Paul Foucault, was an eminent surgeon and hoped his son would join him in the profession. His early education was a mix of success and mediocrity until he attended the Jesuit Collège Saint-Stanislas, where he excelled. During this period, Poitiers was part of Vichy France and later came under German occupation. After World War II, Foucault gained entry to the prestigious École Normale Supérieure (rue d'Ulm), the traditional gateway to an academic career in the humanities in France.
 The École Normale Supérieure
Foucault's personal life during the École Normale was difficult—he suffered from acute depression. He was taken to see a psychiatrist. Because of this, or perhaps in spite of it, Foucault became fascinated with psychology. He earned a licence (degree) in psychology, a very new qualification in France at the time, in addition to a degree in philosophy. He was involved in the clinical arm of psychology, which exposed him to thinkers such as Ludwig Binswanger.
Like many 'normaliens' , Foucault joined the French Communist Party from 1950 to 1953. He was inducted into the party by his mentor Louis Althusser. He left due to concerns about what was happening in the Soviet Union under Stalin. Various people, such as historian Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie, have reported that Foucault never actively participated in his cell, unlike many of his fellow party members.
Foucault was born in 1926 in Poitiers, France, the son of a wealthy surgeon. His early years passed by in a fairly conservative religious environment, as Foucault attended Catholic camp, served as a choirboy, and studied for his baccalaurèat at a Jesuit college (Collège Saint-Stanislas). By this time (1943), France was in the full turmoil of ##World War II##, and discussions of history as either a progress of reason or a chaos of suffering were prevalent. Foucault was taught briefly by the Hegelian philosopher and historian Jean Hyppolite, to whom these historical issues were central (see below).

David Hume (April 26, 1711 – August 25, 1776) was an 18th-century Scottish philosopher, economist, and historian, considered among the most important figures in the history of Western philosophy and the Scottish Enlightenment.
He first gained recognition and respect as a historian, but interest in Hume's work in academia has in recent years centred on his philosophical writing. His History of England was the standard work on English history for sixty or seventy years until Macaulay's.
Hume was the first great philosopher of the modern era to carve out a thoroughly naturalistic philosophy. This philosophy partly consisted in the rejection of the historically prevalent conception of human minds as being miniature versions of the Divine mind; a notion Edward Craig has entitled the ‘Image of God’ doctrine. This doctrine was associated with a trust in the powers of human reason and insight into reality, which powers possessed God’s certification. Hume’s scepticism came in his rejection of this ‘insight ideal’, and the (usually rationalistic) confidence derived from it that the world is as we represent it. Instead, the best we can do is to apply the best explanatory and empirical principles available to the investigation of human mental phenomena, issuing in a quasi-Newtonian project, Hume's ‘Science of Man’.
Hume was heavily influenced by empiricists John Locke and George Berkeley, along with various Francophone writers such as Pierre Bayle, and various figures on the Anglophone intellectual landscape such as Isaac Newton, Samuel Clarke, Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, and Joseph Butler.
The intensity of developing this philosophical vision precipitated a psychological crisis in the isolated scholar. Believing that “a more active scene of life” might improve his condition, Hume made “a very feeble trial” in the world of commerce, as a clerk for a Bristol sugar importer. The crisis passed and he remained intent on articulating his “new scene of thought.” He moved to France, where he could live frugally, and finally settled in La Flèche, a sleepy village in Anjou best known for its Jesuit college. Here, where Descartes and Mersenne studied a century before, Hume read French and other continental authors, especially Malebranche, Dubos, and Bayle; he occasionally baited the Jesuits with iconoclastic arguments; and, between 1734 and 1737, he drafted A Treatise of Human Nature.
The careers open to a poor Scottish gentleman in those days were very few. As Hume's options lay between a travelling tutorship and a stool in a merchant's office, he chose the latter. In 1734, after a few months in commerce in Bristol, he went to La Flèche in Anjou, France. He had frequent discourses with the Jesuits of the famous college in which Descartes was educated. During his four years there, he laid out his life plan, resolving "to make a very rigid frugality supply my deficiency of fortune, to maintain unimpaired my independency, and to regard every object as contemptible except the improvements of my talents in literature."  While there, he completed A Treatise of Human Nature at the age of twenty-six. Although many scholars today consider the Treatise to be Hume's most important work and one of the most important books in the history of philosophy, the public in Great Britain did not agree at first. Hume himself described the (lack of) public reaction to the publication of the Treatise in 1739-40 by writing that it "fell dead-born from the press, without reaching such distinction as even to excite a murmur among the zealots. But being naturally of a cheerful and sanguine temper, I soon recovered from the blow and prosecuted with great ardour my studies in the country". There he wrote the Abstract.  Without revealing his authorship, he aimed to make his larger work more intelligible by shortening it. Even this advertisement failed to enliven interest in the Treatise.

Rudolphus Franciscus Marie Lubbers or Ruud Lubbers (born May 7, 1939) was prime minister of the Netherlands from 1982 – 1994. A political conservative, Lubbers was regarded by many during his time in office as an ideological heir to Margaret Thatcher; one of his campaign slogans was: "meer markt, minder overheid" (more market, less government). After that, he was the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, from 2001 until February 20, 2005, when he resigned because of continuous press attention about an allegation of sexual harassment. In July 2006, Lubbers acted as informateur of a new cabinet, after the second Balkenende cabinet handed over its resignation to the Dutch Queen.
Lubbers was born in Rotterdam. He studied economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam and was a student of the first Nobel Prize Laureate in economics Jan Tinbergen. As suggested by the title of his 1962 thesis - "The influence of differing productivity trends in various countries on the current account of the balance of payments" - his main interest was in monetary affairs. He originally planned an academic career, but was compelled by family circumstances to join the management of Lubbers' Construction Workshops and Machinery Fabricators Hollandia B.V.

Hon. Antonin Gregory Scalia (help·info),AB, JD, (born March 11, 1936) is an American jurist and the second most senior Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Widely regarded as the intellectual anchor of the Court's conservative wing, he is a vigorous proponent of textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in constitutional interpretation, and a passionate critic of the idea of a Living Constitution. Unlike his more ardent states' rights conservative colleague, Clarence Thomas, Justice Scalia does have a favorable view of national power and a strong executive. In this sense, he can be called a Hamiltonian.
Antonin Scalia was born in Trenton, New Jersey. His mother, Catherine Panaro, was born in the United States; his father, S. Eugene, a professor of romance languages, emigrated from Sicily at age 15. When Scalia was five years old, his family moved to the Elmhurst section of Queens, New York City, during which time his father worked at Brooklyn College in Flatbush, Brooklyn.
A member of the Roman Catholic Church, Scalia attended the prestigious Xavier High School, a Catholic and Jesuit school in Manhattan. He graduated first in his class and summa cum laude with an A.B. from Georgetown College at Georgetown University in 1957. While at Georgetown, he also studied at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland and went on to study law at Harvard Law School (where he was a Notes Editor for the Harvard Law Review). He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law in 1960, becoming a Sheldon Fellow of Harvard University the following year. The fellowship allowed him to travel throughout Europe during 1960–1961.
On September 10, 1960, Scalia married Maureen McCarthy, an English major at Radcliffe College. Together they have nine children – Ann Forrest (born September 2, 1961), Eugene (labor attorney, former Solicitor of the Department of Labor), John Francis, Catherine Elisabeth, Mary Clare, Paul David (now a priest in the Catholic Diocese of Arlington at St. Rita's Catholic Church), Matthew (a West Point graduate and U.S. Army Major currently serving as an ROTC instructor at the University of Delaware), Christopher James (currently a professor at the University of Virginia's College at Wise), and Margaret Jane (studying at the University of Virginia. Her dog, Buster, was the inspiration for Blacksburg Brewing Company's "Dog-Licker Pumpkin Ale").
Scalia attended Xavier High School, a Catholic and Jesuit school in Manhattan. He graduated first in his class and summa cum laude with an A.B. from Georgetown University in 1957.

William James "Bill" Murray (born September 21, 1950) is an Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning American comedian and actor.
He first gained national exposure on Saturday Night Live, following that with roles in films such as Stripes, Groundhog Day, Space Jam, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters and Rushmore. He has gained acclaim[attribution needed] for recent dramatic roles, in films such as Lost in Translation, Broken Flowers, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and The Royal Tenenbaums.
Education : Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois
Regis College in Denver, Colorado
Bill is the fifth of nine children born to Edward and Lucille Murray. He worked as caddies, which paid his tuition to Loyola Academy, an all-boy's Jesuit school. He played sports and did some acting while in that school. He enrolled at Regis College in Denver to study pre-med, but dropped out after being arrested for marijuana possession. He then joined the cast of NBC's Saturday Night Live in the show's second season, and shortly thereafter won an Emmy Award as one of the show's writers.
The President’s Reception, featuring remarks by Father Michael J. Sheeran, S.J., and a special honorary degree presentation to Murray, who withdrew before he graduated with the Class of 1972, kicked off an evening of crowd-pleasing Friday evening activities. After welcoming alumni back to their campus, Father Sheeran touched on a number of topics, including the status of various facilities, the Jesuit Mission Endowment and his future role toward ensuring the Jesuit Catholic future of Regis University.
“Now I get to do something I’ve looked forward to for a long time,” Father Sheeran said. “Just after Ghostbusters and Caddyshack and around the time of Groundhog Day, I read an interview with Bill Murray. The reporter got him to reflect on how his humor was more and more a vehicle that introduced the viewer to thinking about the deeper questions of meaning in life. Bill commented that he’d had a Jesuit high school education at Loyola Academy near Chicago and had started with the Jesuits at Regis in 1968. He hadn’t finished the Regis degree, but he had picked up a vantage point, a philosophical turn of mind that
was his Jesuit heritage.”
“Bill’s comments have helped me enjoy his films and get glimmers at least of the man behind the mask that every comic wears,” he continued. “I kid sometimes that the real motto of all Jesuit schools is, ‘We warp you right.’ Bill’s films and his good works have illustrated the depth of his values and his vision. And his return to Regis every five years for the reunion of his Class of 1972 has made a statement about his loyalty to his friends and his roots. So the Board of Trustees would like to make Bill’s status as an alumnus a bit more official by presenting him with the degree, Doctor of Humanities, Honoris Causa.” As he stepped to the podium and thanked Father Sheeran, it was obvious Murray was thrilled. “I met the nicest and finest people here,” Murray said about his days at Regis. “It’s a wonderful place.” (See Page 14 for a feature on Bill Murray.)
Murray achieves official alumnus status
When Bill Murray accepted his honorary degree from Father Michael J. Sheeran, S.J., during Alumni Weekend, the man who claims to be a person of few words left the audience in stitches. Commenting that he would show it off proudly and remarking about his fantastic experiences while at Regis College during the late ’60s, the Hollywood funnyman best known for his appearances in Caddy Shack, Ghostbusters and Lost in Translation, had mixed emotions about finally getting his diploma.
“I have a big smile on my face and I feel really good inside,” he says. “I was not expecting this to happen. I know someone has spoken about it but I thought it was just talk. I was surprised it happened at the reunion because I was just going to sit here and hang out with my friends.” Murray did confess that he seriously has considered going back to school and even mentioned how a friend told him about online classes. He
joked to the audience that his decision to return to classes was “not a matter of intelligence but a matter of application.”
As for his plans to return now that he has a doctor of humanities, honoris causa, and as Father Sheeran put it, “your status as alumnus is official,” he says he is still unsure.

Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock KBE (August 13, 1899 – April 29, 1980) was an iconic and highly influential British-born film director and producer who pioneered many techniques in the suspense and thriller genres. He directed more than fifty feature films in a career spanning six decades, from the silent film era, through the invention of talkies, to the colour era. Hitchcock was among the most consistently successful and publicly recognizable world directors during his lifetime, and remains one of the best known and most popular of all time.
Famous for his expert and largely unrivalled control of pace and suspense, Hitchcock's films draw heavily on both fear and fantasy, and are known for their droll humour and witticisms. They often portray innocent people caught up in circumstances beyond their control or understanding.
Hitchcock was born and raised in Leytonstone, London, England. He began his directing career in the United Kingdom in 1922, but from 1939 he worked primarily in the United States and applied for U.S. citizenship in 1956. Hitchcock and his family owned a mountaintop estate known as Cornwall Ranch or "Heart o' the Mountain" at the end of Canham Road, high above Scotts Valley, California, from 1940 to 1972. They bought a second home in late 1942 at 10957 Bellagio Road in Los Angeles, just across from the Bel Air Country Club. Hitchcock died of renal failure in 1980.
Rebecca was the only one of his films to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, although four others were nominated. However, Hitchcock never won an Academy Award for Best Director. He was awarded the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award for lifetime achievement in 1967, but never personally received an Academy Award of Merit.
Childhood and youth
Alfred Hitchcock was born on August 13, 1899, in Leytonstone, Essex (now London), the second son and youngest of three children of William Hitchcock (1862-1914), a greengrocer and poulterer, and his wife, Emma Jane Hitchcock (née Whelan; 1863-1942). His family was mostly Roman Catholic, being of Irish extraction. Hitchcock was sent to the Jesuit Classic school St. Ignatius College in Enfield, London. He often described his childhood as being very lonely and sheltered, which was undoubtedly compounded by his weight issues.
It is widely known that as a child, Hitchcock's father once sent him to their local police station with a note asking the officer to lock him away for ten minutes as punishment for behaving badly. This idea of being harshly treated or wrongfully accused is more than commonly reflected in Hitchcock's films.
His mother would often make him address her while standing at the foot of her bed, especially if he behaved badly, forcing him to stand there for hours. This would be recalled by the character Norman Bates in Psycho.
When Hitchcock was 14, his father died; the same year, he left the Jesuit-run St Ignatius' College in Stamford Hill, his school at the time, to study at the School for Engineering and Navigation. After graduating, he became a draftsman and advertising designer with a cable company.
About that time, Hitchcock became intrigued by photography and started working in film in London. In 1920, he got a full-time job at Islington Studios with its American owner, Famous Players-Lasky and their British successor, Gainsborough Pictures, designing the titles for silent movies.
St Ignatius' College is a Catholic secondary school for boys, aged 11-18, located in Enfield, Middlesex. Formerly a grammar school, only accepting boys who had passed their 11-plus exam, its educational philosophy was originally based upon the Jesuit precept of Ignatius of Loyola:
Give me the boy and I'll give you the man.
Alfred Hitchcock was the son of East End greengrocer William Hitchcock and his wife Emma. Raised as a strict Catholic and attending Saint Ignatius College, a school run by Jesuits, Hitch had very much of a regular upbringing.
The son of a London poultry dealer, Hitchcock attended St. Ignatius College, London, and the University of London, where he studied engineering. In 1920 he began to work in the motion-picture industry,...

Sir John Paul Getty KBE (September 7, 1932 – April 17, 2003) was a wealthy American-born British philanthropist and book-collector. He was the son of Jean Paul Getty, Sr. (1892-1976), one of the richest men in the world at the time, and his wife Anne Rork.
The family's wealth was the result of the oil business founded by George Franklin Getty. At birth he was given the name Eugene Paul Getty, but in later life he adopted, and was better known by, the names Paul Getty, John Paul Getty and Jean Paul Getty, Jr.
His father expected him to prove himself: his first job was pumping gas for $100 a month. He attended Saint Ignatius High School and the University of San Francisco, but he did not graduate from college. He was drafted into the U.S. Army to serve in Korea.
His first marriage was to Gail Harris, a former water-polo champion. They divorced in 1966 or 1967, having had four children including John Paul Getty III and Mark Getty. He subsequently married the Dutch actress, model and style icon Talitha Pol (stepdaughter of Augustus John's daughter Poppet). She died of a heroin overdose in 1971; by her, he had another son Tara Gabriel Getty in 1968. A long-time Anglophile , he became a British citizen in 1997. In 1986, he was awarded an honorary knighthood for services to causes ranging from cricket (a sport he came to love despite his American upbringing), to art, to the Conservative Party. His honorary knighthood was converted to the full honour in 1998.

Vicente Fox Quesada (born July 2, 1942) was the President of Mexico from 2000 to 2006. He is currently Co-President (with Pier Ferdinando Casini) of the Centrist Democratic International, an international organization of Christian Democratic political parties (which includes Mexico's National Action Party as a member). 
Fox was elected President of Mexico in the 2000 presidential election, an historically significant election that made him the first president elected from an opposition party since Álvaro Obregón in 1920. The 2000 election was also significant because it was the first presidential election since the end of the Mexican Revolution to be generally considered competitive and fair. He was elected with 42 percent of the vote, marking the first time that the then-dominant Institutional Revolutionary Party had lost a presidential election.
After serving as president of Mexico for six years, President Fox returned to his home state of Guanajuato, where he resides with his wife and family. Since leaving the presidency, Vicente Fox has been involved in public speaking and the construction of the Fox Center, Mexico's first presidential library.
Early life and education
Vicente Fox was born in Mexico City on July 2, 1942, the second of nine children. His father was José Luis Fox Pont, an American citizen and his mother was Mercedes Quesada Etxaide, a Basque immigrant from Donostia-San Sebastián. His paternal grandfather, José Luis Fox Flach, was born Joseph Louis Fuchs in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States, son of German Catholic immigrants Louis Fuchs and Catherina Elisabetha Flach.
It was believed that Vicente Fox's grandfather was of Irish descent, but the Cincinnati Federal Census records (1850, 1860) show that he was of German descent. The Fuchs ('fox' in German) family changed the spelling of their last name to Fox after 1870. In 1890, Joseph L. Fox worked as a shipping clerk for Emerson & Fisher, the carriage makers. Given the company's failure, and Cincinnati's economic stagnation, Joseph emigrated in 1898 to the nearest region that welcomed Catholic immigrants, Mexico, and changed the spelling of his name to José Luis Fox Flach. In 1915 he purchased a ranch in San Francisco del Rincón in Guanajuato, since then the Fox family seat.
Fox spent his childhood and adolescence at the family ranch. He moved back to Mexico City to attend the Universidad Iberoamericana where he pursued a business degree until 1964 and obtained a diploma in Top Management Skills from the Business School of Harvard University.
He had opportunities they did not and was able to study in private schools such as the Jesuit-run Universidad Iberoamericana, majoring in Business Administration.
Vicente Fox studied Business Administration at the Universidad Iberoamericana; he recalls his provincial, "ranch-style" appearance and how it contrasted with that of his classmates.

Charles André Joseph Marie de Gaulle (listen (help·info)) (November 22, 1890 – November 9, 1970) was a French general and statesman who led the Free French Forces during World War II and later founded the French Fifth Republic and served as its first President. In France, he is commonly referred to as Général de Gaulle or simply Le Général.
Prior to World War II, de Gaulle was a tactician of armoured warfare and advocate of military aviation. During the war, he reached the rank of Brigadier General and organised the Free French Forces with exiled French officers in England. He gave a famous radio address in 1940, exhorting the French people to resist Nazi Germany. Following the liberation of France in 1944, de Gaulle became prime minister in the French Provisional Government. Although he retired from politics in 1946 due to political conflicts, he was returned to power with military support following the May 1958 crisis. De Gaulle led the writing of a new constitution founding the Fifth Republic, and was elected the President of France.
As president, Charles de Gaulle ended the political chaos and violence that preceded his return to power. Although he initially supported French rule over Algeria, he controversially decided to grant independence to Algeria, ending an expensive and unpopular war. A new currency was issued to control inflation and industrial growth was promoted. De Gaulle oversaw the development of atomic weapons and promoted a pan-European foreign policy, seeking to diminish U.S. and British influence; withdrawing France from the NATO military command, he objected to Britain’s entry into the European Community and recognised Communist China. During his term, de Gaulle also faced controversy and political opposition from Communists and Socialists, and a spate of widespread protests in May 1968. De Gaulle retired in 1969, but remains the most influential leader in modern French history.
De Gaulle was born in Lille, the third of five children of Henri de Gaulle, a professor of philosophy and literature at a Jesuit college, who eventually founded his own school. He was raised in a family of devout Roman Catholics who were nationalist and traditionalist, but also quite progressive.
De Gaulle's father, Henri, came from a long line of aristocracy from Normandy and Burgundy, while his mother, Jeanne Maillot, descended from a family of rich entrepreneurs from the industrial region of Lille in French Flanders. The “de” in “de Gaulle” is not a nobiliary particle, although the de Gaulle family were an ancient family of ennobled knighthood. The earliest known de Gaulle ancestor was a squire of the 12th-century King Philip Augustus. The name “de Gaulle” is thought to have evolved from a Germanic form, “De Walle”, meaning “the wall (of a fortification or city)”, “the rampart”. Much of the old French nobility descended from Frankish and Norman Germanic lineages and often bore Germanic names.
De Gaulle was educated in Paris at the College Stanislas and also briefly in Belgium. Since childhood, he had a displayed a keen interest in reading and studying history.. Choosing a military career, de Gaulle spent four years studying and training at the elite Saint-Cyr. Graduating in 1912, he joined an infantry regiment of the French Army.
Charles André Joseph Marie de Gaulle was born in 1890 in Lille in northern France, the son of a teacher. He chose not to follow his father’s profession but to become a soldier instead. In 1908, after a year’s preparation at the Collége Stanislas in Paris, he entered the French military academy, the Ecole Spéciale Militaire de St Cyr.
Mention of Stanislas College being a Jesuit College:

General David Howell Petraeus, USA (born November 7, 1952) is the current Commanding General, Multi-National Force - Iraq (MNF-I). This special four-star post oversees all U.S. forces in the country. He was confirmed to that position by the Senate in a vote of 81–0 on January 26, 2007. He replaced General George Casey who was subsequently confirmed as Chief of Staff of the United States Army. In his new position, Petraeus oversees all coalition forces in Iraq and carries out the new Iraqi strategy plan outlined by the Bush administration. Casey relinquished command in Iraq to Petraeus on February 10, 2007. The change of command was presided over by General John Abizaid, then commander of United States Central Command.
Time named Petraeus 33rd out of the 100 most influential leaders and revolutionaries of 2007..The Daily Telegraph has named him the second most influential American conservative. Petraeus was the General George C. Marshall Award winner as the top graduate of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College—class of 1983. He subsequently earned a Master of Public Administration (1985) and a Ph.D. (1987) in International Relations from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. He later served as Assistant Professor of International Relations at the U.S. Military Academy, and also completed a fellowship at Georgetown University. He has a BS from the U.S. Military Academy—class of 1974.
Some media have speculated that Petraeus may harbor presidential ambitions, although many others deny this. Critics have cited the theory as one possible reason for his staunch support of "surge" strategy in Iraq. ,
Education and academia
Petraeus graduated from West Point in 1974. He returned to the military academy in 1981, earning the General George C. Marshall Award as the top graduate of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College Class of 1983 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. He subsequently earned a MPA in 1985 and a Ph.D. in international relations in 1987 from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, and later served as an Assistant Professor of International Relations at the U.S. Military Academy. His doctoral dissertation, "The American Military and the Lessons of Vietnam: A Study of Military Influence and the Use of Force in the Post-Vietnam Era," dealt with the influence of the Vietnam War on military thinking regarding the use of force. He also completed a military fellowship at Georgetown's School of Foreign Service in 1994–1995, although he was called away early to serve in Haiti.
He also completed a fellowship at Georgetown University. He is often referred to as the military’s warrior-scholar.

Michael Sullivan is the current United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts. He is the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Sullivan was notable for his prosecution of airport workers arrested at Logan Airport as part of "Operation Tarmac". The Logan 19 were airport workers, arrested as part of Operation Tarmac, because they had lied about their nationality on the job applications. According to the Boston Phoenix:
"It’s true that life has changed since September 11. But with one exception, every US attorney prosecuting Operation Tarmac cases has either reduced or dropped the charges. The exception? Massachusetts’s Sullivan, who is pursuing maximum legal penalties against the former Logan Airport employees swept up in Operation Tarmac. 'Ignoring the alleged criminal activity of illegal immigrants sends the wrong message to the rest of the world,' he tells the Phoenix."
Sullivan was the subject of an article in Fortune magazine, for his prosecution of fraud in the pharmaceutical industry.
Sullivan laid charges, in Boston, on November 23, 2005, against Abdullah Khadr, a Canadian who is alleged to have sold arms to the Taliban.
He is rumored to be a potential Republican challenger for John Kerry's US Senate seat in 2008.

Michael Kevin Powell (born March 23, 1963) is an American Republican politician. He was appointed to the Federal Communications Commission by President Bill Clinton on 3 November 1997. President George W. Bush designated him chairman of the commission on January 22, 2001. Powell is the son of former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Alma Powell.
Early life and accident
He was born in Birmingham, Alabama. In 1985, he graduated from the College of William and Mary on an ROTC Scholarship. Powell was an armored cavalry officer in the United States Army stationed in Amberg, Germany, but was unable to serve after sustaining severe injuries in 1987 during a training mission. He and his unit were traveling in a convoy on the autobahn. Powell was riding in a jeep at the time. Due to heavy rain, the jeep crashed and Powell was ejected from the vehicle. After he hit the pavement, the jeep bounced and crashed down on Powell's midsection.
Half of Powell's pelvis had snapped off its rear anchor on the lower spine. In the front, it had ripped free of the cartilage connecting it to its other half. His bladder and urethra were torn and several vertebrae were cracked.
After initial attention from German emergency room doctors, Powell was flown to a U.S. Army hospital in Nuremberg. After being stabilized, he was flown to Washington, D.C. and admitted to Walter Reed Army Medical Center where he spent a year in recovery. To this day, his spine is still fused at its base, forcing him to walk with a slight forward pitch.
After his rehabilitation he served as an expert advisor to the Secretary of Defense. Powell later received a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from the Georgetown University Law Center and clerked for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D. C. Circuit. He then worked for a year and a half as a private attorney in the Washington, D.C. office of O'Melveny & Myers, an L.A.-based firm, as well as in the antitrust division of the Justice Department for a year.

UNTIL THE STRUCTURE AND FOUNDATION OF WESTERN CIVILISATION(THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH) WAS OVERTHROWN IN THE YEARS 1914-1920, THE COMPANY OF JESUS(AKA JESUITS) WAS(AFTER THE ORIGINAL APOSTLES AND DECIPLES) THE MOST INGENIOUS ORGANISATION THAT EVER EXISTED ON EARTH.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO THROW BABY OUT WITH BATHWATER AS THE CATHOLIC RELIGION CANNOT BE DESTROYED JUST BECAUSE SOME ANTI-CHRIST JUDAICS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE BUILDINGS OF VATICAN CITY.
IT'S A LIE TO SAY THE STALIN WAS A 'FULLY ORDAINED JESUIT PRIEST'. FOR MANY GENERATIONS ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE HAVE ATTENDED JESUIT SCHOOLS BECAUSE THEY WERE THE BEST.
AND DELTA--GET A CLUE--THE #1 DOGMATIC ARTICLE OF FAITH IN THE WORLD OF CONSPIRATOLOGY IS THAT THE FED IS A PRIVATE BANK: IF YOU HAVEN'T FIGURED THAT OUT YET THERE IS BIG PROBLEM.
12-29-2007, 08:46 PM
THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT CERTAIN FACTION OF THE CATHOLIC WORLD SYMPATHISED WITH THE NAZIS AND FASCISTS(even Card Raphael in his old age was in favor of the Lateran Treaty--Pius X would never have never gone along with it as long as the Capital of the Italian secular state was Rome). MUSSOLINI AND HITLER MADE INSINCERE CONCESSIONS TO ENTANGLE THE CHURCH IN THEIR SCHEMES, BUT NEITHER WERE FRIENDS OF THE CHURCH. BOTH TRIED TO SUPPRESS THE CHURCH BY AFTERWARDS VIOLATING THE CONCORDATS SIGNED WITH ROME(same same Napoleon with the 'Organic articles').
QUOTING MANFRED BERTHEL( a neutral historian) IN 'THE JESUITS'-PAGE 262 "THE NAZI CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE CHURCH WAS AIMED AT THE JESUITS IN PARTICULAR AND NAZI OFFICIALS DISCOVERED A NUMBER OF WAYS OF HAMPERING THEIR ACTIVITIES".
HITLER AND MUSSOLINI LEARNED FROM CECIL AND JAMES I HOW TO USE CATHOLICS WHEN COMING TO POWER AND HOW TO BLOW THEM OFF AFTERWARDS.
AND BTW, SPRINGMEIER(whose link from catholicvoice has vanished) HAS ID'D THE PHELPS(as in Eric Jon) FAMILY AS AN ILLUMINATI BLOODLINE.

Its one big conspiracy Roscoe. I am fully convinced that the leaders of the catholic church play a big role in the NWO, besides of the jewish bankers and royal families of europe. Remember that the katholic church was founded by a pagan roman emporer. I know however that there are many very good and honest priests. I met many of them personally. The best solution would be to get rid of the rotten appels like the pope and keep the honest priest who do a great service to many communities around the world.
12-29-2007, 09:48 PM
HITLER--ACC TO RAUSCHNING "ABOVE ALL I HAVE LEARNED FROM THE JESUITS AND SO DID LENEIN TOO AS FAR AS I RECALL"
IT IS TRUE THAT PAGAN ANTIICHRIST RULERS LEARN FROM THE JESUITS BUT ONLY AS REGARDS ORGANISATIONAL METHOD--HARDLY AS TO PURPOSE. NO ONE CAN DENY THAT THE JESUITS HISTORICALLY ARE UNSURPASSED IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION. IT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE THAT IT IS INDEED POSSIBLE TO REFUSE GOD'S GRACE.
WHERE DID YOU EVER GET THE IDEA THAT THE 'KATHOLIC' CHURCH WAS FOUNDED BY A PAGAN ROMAN EMP? CATHOLIC CHURCH WAS FOUNDED ON PENTACOST WHEN THE HOLY GHOST DECENDED UPON THE APOSTLES ASSEMBLED IN CONGRESS.

François-Marie Arouet (21 November 1694 – 30 May 1778), better known by the pen name Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment writer, essayist, deist and philosopher known for his wit, philosophical sport, and defense of civil liberties, including freedom of religion and the right to a fair trial. He was an outspoken supporter of social reform despite strict censorship laws and harsh penalties for those who broke them. A satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticize Christian Church dogma and the French institutions of his day.
Many of Voltaire's works and ideas would influence important thinkers of both the American and French Revolutions, an honor that he would share with other political theorists such as John Locke and Thomas Hobbes.
The French author François-Marie Arouet de Voltaire was born November 21, 1694, in Paris, the last of three children of François Arouet (1650–January 1, 1722), a notary who was a minor treasury official, and his wife, Marie Marguerite d'Aumart (ca. 1660–July 13, 1701), from a noble family of Poitou province. Voltaire was educated by Jesuits at the Collège Louis-le-Grand (1704-11), where he learned Latin and Greek; later in life he became fluent in Italian, Spanish, and English. From 1711 to 1713 he studied law. Before devoting himself entirely to writing, Voltaire worked as a secretary to the French ambassador in the Netherlands, where he fell in love with a French refugee named Catherine Olympe Dunoyer. Their scandalous elopement was foiled by Voltaire's father and he was forced to return to France. Most of Voltaire's early life revolved around Paris until his exile. From the beginning Voltaire had trouble with the authorities for his energetic attacks on the government and the Catholic Church. These activities were to result in numerous imprisonments and exiles. In his early twenties he spent eleven months in the Bastille for allegedly writing satirical verses about the aristocracy.
After graduating, Voltaire set out on a career in literature. His father, however, intended his son to be educated in the law. Voltaire, pretending to work in Paris as an assistant to a lawyer, spent much of his time writing satirical poetry. When his father found him out, he again sent Voltaire to study law, this time in the provinces. Nevertheless, he continued to write, producing essays and historical studies not always noted for their accuracy. Voltaire's wit made him popular among some of the aristocratic families. One of his writings, about Louis XV's regent, Philippe II, Duke of Orléans, led to his being imprisoned in the Bastille, which was previously mentioned. While there, he wrote his debut play, Œdipe, and adopted the name Voltaire which came from his hometown in southern France . Œdipe's success began Voltaire's influence and brought him into the French Enlightenment. Voltaire was a prolific writer, and produced works in almost every literary form, authoring plays, poetry, novels, essays, historical and scientific works, over 20,000 letters and over two thousand books and pamphlets.
The Lycée Louis-le-Grand (sometimes nicknamed LLG) is a public high school located in Paris, widely regarded as one of the most demanding in France. Formerly known as the Collège de Clermont, it was named in king Louis XIV of France's honor after he visited the school and offered his patronage.
It offers both a high-school curriculum (a lycée with 800 pupils), and a college-level curriculum (classes préparatoires with 900 students), preparing students for entrance to the elite Grandes Écoles. Louis-le-Grand is famous for its high success rates for École Polytechnique, École Normale Supérieure, École Centrale Paris and École nationale supérieure des mines de Paris. Students at the Lycée are called magnoludoviciens.
Louis-le-Grand, founded in 1563, is located in the heart of the Quartier Latin, the traditional student's area of Paris. Rich in history, architecture, culture, this area is home to the oldest and the most prestigious educational establishments in France, the Sorbonne and the Collège de France.
Louis-le-Grand plays a leading role in the education of French elites. Countless former pupils have become statesmen, diplomats, prelates, marshals of France, members of the Académie française, and men and women of letters. "The Jesuit College of Paris", wrote Élie de Beaumont in 1862, "has for a long time been a state nursery, the most fertile in great men". Indeed Molière, Voltaire, Victor Hugo are former students who became famous writers and, Georges Pompidou, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, Jacques Chirac, all presidents of the French Fifth Republic, all once spent time on the benches of Louis-le-Grand. Renowned foreign students of the Lycée include King Nicholas I of Montenegro and Léopold Sédar Senghor, the first president of Senegal.

Peter Seamus O'Toole (born August 2, 1932, uncertain but presumed correct date) is an eight-time Academy Award-nominated Irish actor. He has received three Golden Globes and an Emmy Award. He was also awarded an honorary Oscar for his body of work (2003).
O'Toole was born in 1932, with some sources giving his birthplace as Connemara, County Galway, Ireland, and others as Leeds, in West Yorkshire, England, where he also grew up. O'Toole himself is not certain of his birthplace or date, noting in his autobiography that while he accepts August 2 as his birthdate, he has conflicting birth certificates in both countries, with the Irish one giving a June, 1932 birthdate. O'Toole is the son of Constance Jane (née Ferguson), a Scottish-born nurse, and Patrick Joseph O'Toole, an Irish bookmaker. When O'Toole was one year old, the O’Tooles began a five-year tour of major racetrack towns in northern England. Peter O'Toole went to a Catholic School for seven or eight years, where he was "implored" to become right-handed. “I used to be scared stiff of the nuns: their whole denial of womanhood—the black dresses and the shaving of the hair—was so horrible, so terrifying,” he later commented. “Of course, that's all been stopped. They're sipping gin and tonic in the Dublin pubs now, and a couple of them flashed their pretty ankles at me just the other day.” O'Toole later took pride in his Irish ancestry, even to the point of apparently always wearing at least one item of green clothing - usually his socks.
O'Toole was called up for National Service in Britain and served as a radioman in the Royal Navy. As reported in a radio interview in 2006 on NPR, he was asked by an officer whether he had something he'd always wanted to do. His reply was that he'd always wanted to try being either a poet or an actor. O'Toole attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) (1952–1954) on a scholarship after being rejected by the Abbey Theatre's Drama School in Dublin by the then director Ernest Blythe, because he couldn't speak Irish. At RADA, he was in the same class as Albert Finney, Richard Harris, Alan Bates and Brian Bedford. O'Toole described this as "the most remarkable class the academy ever had, though we weren't reckoned for much at the time. We were all considered dotty".
St Anne's Catholic School Leeds, England
Royal Academy of Dramatic Art London, England 1952
Holy Rosary and St Anne's Catholic Primary School
There seems to be no explicit mention of the St Anne School being run by Jesuits. But the Jesuits themselves however, brag about the apparent fact that O'Toole was indeed Jesuit trained on at least one of their sites:
What is interesting too is that O'Toole will play in a new movie called God's Spy:
A Jesuit priest working undercover as a Wall Street trader becomes caught up in a political and financial conspiracy involving the Vatican Bank, the CIA, the Mafia, and Masonic Lodge P2.
Looks like the kind of apologetic white-wash propaganda well-suited for a temporal coadjutor to participate in.

Joseph Philippe Pierre Yves Elliott Trudeau PC CC CH QC FRSC (usually known as Pierre Trudeau or Pierre Elliott Trudeau) (18 October 1919 – 28 September 2000), was the fifteenth Prime Minister of Canada from 20 April 1968 to 4 June 1979, and from 3 March 1980 to 30 June 1984. Trudeau was the first Canadian Prime Minister born in the 20th century.
Trudeau was a charismatic figure who, from the late 1960s until the mid-1980s, dominated the Canadian political scene and aroused passionate reactions. "He haunts us still," biographers Christina McCall and Stephen Clarkson wrote. Admirers praise the force of Trudeau's intellect. They salute his political acumen in preserving national unity and establishing the Charter of Rights and Freedoms within Canada's constitution. Detractors fault Trudeau for poor administrative practices, arrogance, and lack of understanding of Canada outside Quebec. Nevertheless, few would dispute that Trudeau was a towering figure who helped redefine Canada.
Trudeau led Canada through some of its most tumultuous times and was often the centre of controversy. Known for his flamboyance, he dated celebrities, sometimes wore sandals in the House of Commons, was accused of using an obscenity during debate there, and once did a pirouette behind the back of Queen Elizabeth II.
Born in Montreal to Charles-Émile Trudeau, a wealthy French Canadian businessman and lawyer, and Grace Elliott, who was of French and Scottish descent. Trudeau attended the prestigious Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf (a private French Roman Catholic school) where he was affiliated with the ideas of clerical fascism and Quebec nationalism. According to long-time friend and colleague Marc Lalonde the contemporary clerically influenced dictatorships of António de Oliveira Salazar in Portugal and Francisco Franco in Spain along with that of Marshal Pétain in Vichy France were seen as models to many young intellectuals educated at elite Jesuit schools in Quebec. Lalonde asserts that Trudeau's later intellectual development as an "intellectual rebel, anti-establishment fighter on behalf of unions and promoter of religious freedom" was a product of his experiences once he left Quebec to study in the United States, France and England and travel the world, an experience which allowed him to break from Jesuit influence and study French philosophers such as Jacques Maritain and Emmanuel Mounier as well as John Locke and David Hume.
Trudeau earned a law degree at the Université de Montréal in 1943, followed by a master's in political economy at Harvard.
Young Trudeau: 1919-1944: Son of Quebec, Father of Canada (short title: Young Trudeau) is the intellectual biography of the former Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Trudeau that deals with his parents, childhood, and education in the province of Quebec from his birth in 1919 until November of 1944 when he left to study at Harvard University.
Published in 2006 by Douglas Gibson Books (ISBN 0-7710-6749-6), the book was written by retired professors Max and Monique Nemni, friends and admirers of Pierre Trudeau whom he had convinced to take over as editors of Cité Libre. Max and Monique Nemni spent most of their working lives in the province of Quebec. The authors have both had numerous writings published in academic publications in both the English and French languages.
Young Trudeau is based on the large collection of private papers and personal diaries of Pierre Trudeau which he gave the authors in 1995 to write his intellectual biography and which had never before been made public. The book's back cover states that what Trudeau was taught at College Jean-de-Brebeuf and the University of Montreal, was that:
"democracy was bad and that fascism -- as represented by Mussolini and Pétain -- was good. Thus, even as a young man of twenty-three, Trudeau was ignoring the war in Europe and plotting a revolution to take Quebec out of Canada. The picture that emerges is of a Quebec elite that was raised to be pro-fascist, and where Nazi atrocities were dismissed as English (Canadian) propaganda."
The Quebec government abolished the Ministry of Education in 1875 to submit to the ultramontane Roman Catholic clergy which considered education the domain of the family and the Church, not the state. (p.31) The result was that only private secondary schools gave access to French colleges and universities and the Catholic Church controlled the French universities, and ran the orphanages, hospitals, and shelters for the aged. (p.31)
The book recounts the influences of Trudeau's Roman Catholic upbringing and education at the Jesuit owned and run College Jean-de-Brebeuf in Montreal where students were taught that French-Canadians enjoyed a moral superiority. (p.16 – Quote from: ). The writings of the revered priest Lionel Groulx also espoused this idea of ethnic superiority. His pedagogical novel, L'Appel de la race (The Call of Race) taught that "the children of ethnically mixed marriages suffer from a form of schizophrenia because they are inhabited by two different souls." A character in Father Groulx's book exclaims: "So it is really true that the mixing of races produces cerebral disorders." (p.15)
The book shows through Trudeau's own written words that what he was taught was unquestioned obedience to the doctrines of the Roman Catholic church. Through priests in local churches and those in charge of the French language education system, the Church played an unparalleled role in creating Quebec's French elite. (p.33) In 2000, René Latourelle, a priest who taught at College Jean-de Brebeuf, published Quel avenir pour le Christianisme? in which he said (p.16/17) that "The church acted as a true dictatorship over consciences." 
At College Jean-de Brebeuf, "Nationalism and religion together constituted the combined fundamental values that infused all the life of the college." (p.46) Antisemitism was a part of college teachings and the august priest Lionel Groulx espoused his l'achat chez nous policy that warned French Canadians not to shop at Jewish-owned stores. (p.58). Pierre Trudeau himself fully subscribed to these theories and wrote a vehemently anti-Semitic play titled Dupés (meaning "We've been had!"). His diary records that the seven-character play was "performed on May 16, 1938 at College Jean-de-Brebeuf before students and parents with great success." (p.58)

Brébeuf was canonized in 1930 with seven other missionaries, known as the Canadian Martyrs. He is a patron saint of Canada, and his feast day is October 19th. Many Jesuit schools are named after him, such as College Jean-de-Brebeuf, Brebeuf College School and Brebeuf High School.
I will attempt to show here that a significant Christian influence impregnates the Charter. And its source is to be found in Trudeau's Catholic education at a Jesuit College, Jean-de-Brebeuf, in Montreal. A student at this prestigious school from 1932 to 1940, Trudeau was profoundly affected by the education he received there. As revealed by his notes and letters, he enjoyed all his courses, but especially those in religion.

Question for you Dutch Phil. Does attending a jesuit school make you one of their puppets? I think we need more evidence of the control of these people by the jesuits. Its very well possible that the jesuits pick certain people at their schools who are suitable for certain jobs. However, I would like to see some more concrete evidence of this. Do any of these people get special fellowships? Are they member of other secret societies?

I don't think that all those trained by Jesuits necessarily are used by the Jesuit Order, only those that can serve the Order.
Well, off the top of my head Pat Buchanan is Jesuit trained and a Knight of Malta, as is King Juan Carlos of Spain. I'm sure there are more examples of Jesuit trained pupils joining Old Boys Clubs such as SMOM or Rotary Clubs. More research is needed and I am in the process of making a thread on powerful Knights of Malta.
Stay tuned for more.
Thanks for all the others in participating in this rather lively discussion.

Mark Thompson (born July 31, 1957) is Director-General of the BBC, a post he has held since 2004, and a former chief executive of Channel 4. Born in London and brought up in Hertfordshire, he went to Stonyhurst College in Lancashire and Merton College, Oxford, where he took a first in English. He now lives in Oxford with his American wife Jane, and has three children.
Mark Thompson was appointed Director-General of the BBC on 21 May 2004, after being Chief Executive of Channel 4 since December 2001.
He took up his appointment on 22 June 2004.
He had previously worked at the BBC for more than 20 years, becoming Director of Television in April 2000, responsible for the management and running of all BBC network television channels.
Mark Thompson was previously Director of National and Regional Broadcasting, a post he had held since January 1999.
In this role he had overall responsibility for all broadcasting activities in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and for local and regional broadcasting in England.
He was born in London on 31 July 1957 and was educated at Stonyhurst College and Merton College, Oxford.
Among the boasts made by Stonyhurst College is that it exists to educate men and women "for others". By this, Britain's elite Catholic public school means that it teaches pupils to lead. The latest of its alumni to reach high office is the BBC's new director-general, Mark Thompson. There are few better examples of the ambition that Stonyhurst's Jesuit staff seek to inculcate. The man BBC insiders have dubbed "the ultimate politician" is not just astute. He is driven.

William Joyce (April 24, 1906 – January 3, 1946), the man generally associated with the nickname Lord Haw-Haw, was a fascist politician and Nazi propaganda broadcaster to the United Kingdom during the Second World War. He was executed for treason by the British as a result of his wartime activities.
Joyce was born at 1906 Herkimer Street in Brooklyn, New York City, to an English Protestant mother and an Irish Catholic father who had taken United States citizenship. A few years after his birth, the family returned to Galway, Ireland. He attended the Jesuit St. Ignatius College, Galway, from 1915 to 1921. Unusually for Irish Roman Catholics, both William Joyce and his father were strongly Unionist. William Joyce later claimed to have aided the Black and Tans and to have been a target of the Irish Republican Army because of this..
Following a failed assassination attempt in 1921 (which only failed due to the 16-year old Joyce taking a different route home from school) he left for England where he would briefly attend King's College School, Wimbledon for a foreign exchange, followed two years later by his family. William Joyce applied to Birkbeck College of the University of London and to enter the Officer Training Corps. At Birkbeck, Joyce developed an interest in fascism, and he joined the British Fascisti of Rotha Lintorn-Orman. In 1924, while stewarding a Conservative Party meeting, Joyce was attacked and received a deep razor slash that ran across his right cheek. It left a permanent scar which ran from the earlobe to the corner of the mouth. Joyce was convinced that his attackers were "Jewish communists". It was an incident that had a marked bearing on his outlook.
Irish author Mary Kenny has just published her long awaited biography on the notorious wartime radio propaganda (or Nazi spin doc!) William 'Lord Haw Haw' Joyce.
William Joyce (April 24 1906 - January 3 1946), was the second of two announcers who presented the Lord Haw-Haw program, which was a Nazi propaganda broadcast aimed against Great Britain during World War II.
He was born in the United States to Irish parents during the years before Irish independence. However, Joyce, as his father did, identified himself as a Briton. The Joyce family left Ireland for London after the establishment of the Irish Free State. He attended St. Ignatius College from 1915 to 1921, including applying for university Officer Training Corps, and later studied at Birkbeck College of the London University.
It was at Birkbeck that Joyce developed an interest in fascism. He was for a period a member of the Conservative Party.
Joyce was a prominent member of the British Union of Fascists under Sir Oswald Mosley during the 1930s. He was praised for his power of oratory. However, he left the BUF in 1937 and formed a breakaway organization, the National Socialist League. In late August 1939, shortly before World War II commenced, he and his wife, Margaret, fled to Germany, before British authorities could detain him under Defence Regulation 18b.
Joyce became a naturalized German in 1940.
Mary Kenny's biography is certainly worth a read. And one wonders if the ever-so, ever-so politically correct Media Faculty at Birkbeck College will be holding any future lectures on this, one of their most infamous old boys, and a man the college once handed a London University degree, at some point in the future?
A few years after his birth, the family returned to Galway, Ireland. He attended St. Ignatius College, Galway, from 1915 to 1921. Though the family were Roman Catholic, they were strongly unionist. William Joyce later claimed to have aided the Black and Tans.

Well, if you really would've read my posts with at least a finite level of attention, you'd be bound to discover that I go out of my way trying to prove Jesuit education and as such establish the validity of wikipedia's information and claims. With the word 'proof', I mean verification of Jesuit education by (relevant) Jesuit run schools or Jesuit oriented magazines. Check it out, it's really all there in almost all cases. For all the cases I couldn't prove with certainty I use google to find as much supportive evidence as I could, the more the merrier.
And frankly it doesn't really matter where I get the initial references from, for all I care they could be placed in Vanity Fair or the Donald Duck for that matter, if the information checks out to be true then that's all that matters.
My attempts can only be interpreted as "hopeless" if one fails to understand a rigorous (scientific) method of investigation, as you apparently do.
The Jesuit Order demonizes itself through their own nefarious actions, I'm merely adjusting the lighting a bit.

Great work, DutchPhil!
-5/9 of the Supreme Court is Roman Catholic and the Chief Justice worked with the Jesuits at Georgetown University as a member of it's faculty.
-25% of the Senate is Roman Catholic. 10 Senators have close ties to the network of Jesuit institutions.
-The CIA was founded by William Donovan, Allen Dulles, and James Angleton. All three of these men were Knights of Malta. The CIA jumpstarted with hundreds of Nazi scientists on it's side. This was called "Operation Paperclip". Paperclip was overseen by Knight of Malta Allen Dulles and funded by J. Peter Grace, the former head of the Knights of Malta in the US. It brought over Reinhard Gehlen, who was instrumental in CIA operations at the time. Gehlen was a Knight of Malta.
-The FBI was founded by Charles Bonaparte, a devout Catholic, alleged Knight of Malta, and a trustee on the board of the Catholic University of America.
Jesuit control is obvious.

I'm a Roman Catholic Freemason who was Jesuit raised school wise. That's three elements of Christendom that all hate each other, and none have shown any ill interest towards me. So I call bullshit on this very, very convoluted conspiracy theory! Although because I'm any one of those three things the true basketcases who need mental help will write me off prima facie; but seriously, read and listen to what you're saying. It doesn't even START to make sense. WHY would they do any of the things claimed? Because it will make a new world order? But I thought FREEMASONS and satanists and all those interchangeable terms of organisations you don't know the meaning or origin of are all doing that too?
How can we have a New World Order under one Illuminati when EVERY GROUP in existance that isn't YOUR group or doesn't share your beliefs is making their OWN New World Order?
Take two Xanax and call me in the morning. Unless you think psychiatric medicines, or medicine, or science, is also work of the NWO. In which case, find a cliff, jump, and save our humane genome from pollution with asshattery. :)

Please try to improve your personality. At this point in time, you seem to be very hostile and quick to make fun of others. That will only lead to explosions of anger, such as me saying that I don't exactly trust a Jesuit-trained Catholic Freemason to tell me the dirt on conspiracy theories.

People seem to be listing famous people who went to Jesuit schools. Jesuit schools are catholic schools run by Jesuits. Every order have their own schools, none really talk to each other and just operate as regular schools under the diocese. However, listing all these famous and successful upstanding members of the community doesn't make me think Jesuits are some EVIL CONSPIRAXXXYCYCY HURRR, it makes me think they teach good morals and now I'm kind of glad I didn't go to a public school. Although the whole religious side of things was pretty boring tbh.
