It was time for another check-in with a well-informed military man who never fails to astonish me with revelations that never seem to appear on Fox or CNN.

"What's new?" I asked Hank.

"Oh, dude."

My friend and deep source for more than 16 years sounded tired. And shaken. This veteran of the Gulf War, personal intrigues and interventions at all levels of the U.S. government and military, does not rattle easily.

Since we'd last spoken, Hank related, he'd stopped to help a stranger "on a tight deadline" change a tire on his car. Hank asked no questions, which must have impressed the mysterious motorist. Because weeks later he "got a nice little knock on the door, and there he is again."

You know where I live, Hank thought. Damn!

"What do you need?" he asked aloud. "Another tire fixed?"

"No, just some of your time."

The visitor on his doorstep was not the first insider to check Hank out, review some of the pieces we'd done together, and come forward. But this Vatican Jesuit "who helped run things" was certainly the highest placed. Over subsequent visits, Hank was introduced to enough of "his friends, neighbors, compatriots, ner'do-wells" to establish this man's veracity.

His ears, he said, were still burning.

"No political event or circumstance can be evaluated without the knowledge of the Vatican's part in it. And no significant world situation exists in which the Vatican does not play an important explicit or implicit role." -Baron Avro Manhattan, English historian, Knight of Malta, The Vatican and World Politics

"The Vatican has surfaced again," Hank informed me. According to his Vatican source, "They have been purchasing a large amount of storage and online storage space. They are taking a lot of pictures, a lot of documents and a lot of scans and putting that information together in a large vault of information. And they're wanting more."

If so, this project will take tons of terabytes. The "Vatican Secret Archives" - as a London newspaper tagged them - contain almost two-million items. Forget the DaVinci Code. Squirreled away in 50 miles of catacombs shelving, this volatile stockpile of scandals dating back over 1,000 years is the real deal. [Independent May 21/06]

A short list of what those Vatican records might hide:

1. Not long after the Vatican State received sovereignty and $85 million after signing an alliance with Hitler's fascist mentor, Mussolini in 1929, Pope Pius XII dealt with another devil he admired, closing down the Catholic-dominated Center Party, one of the Nazi Socialist Party's strongest opponents. As Jews were being carted away to gas chambers from their ghetto beneath the Vatican's windows, instead of condemning the Holocaust, "Hitler's Pope" is accused of forbidding monasteries and convents to shelter Jews, and accepting loot stolen from the Nazi's victims. One 1946 U.S. Treasury document alone shows the Vatican serving as a repository for more than 200 million Swiss francs.

In accord with Jesuit doctrine, Pope Pius XII also allowed Franciscans to force conversions using torture in Croatia, where priests like Father Krusnoslav Draganovic (indicted for war crimes) and Bishop Ivan Saric ("Hangman of the Serbs") assisted escaping Nazis. Father Filipovic-Majstorovic commanded a Ustashi torture camp, where 700,000 non-Catholic Jewish and non-Jewish "heretics" were slaughtered with a relish and brutality that shocked even the Nazi SS. Never charged for his crimes, Fra Sotona ("Father Satan") as inmates called him, was rewarded with gold smuggled out of Croatia by the retreating Germans. [The Vatican in World Politics; Ottawa Citizen Sept 10/00;; US National Archives -CIA; Unholy Trinity,; The Vatican's Holocaust;;; reformation. org; listserv.acsu.]

2. The Vatican's sins in Croatia continued. In 2005, UN chief prosecutor Carla del Ponte charged that a "most wanted" war criminal was being shielded in a Franciscan monastery by the Vatican hierarchy. A fugitive since 2001, with a $6 million bounty on his head, General Gotovina was charged with crimes against humanity. In a statement that must have challenged the Mossad, Del Ponti told the press, "The Catholic Church has the most advanced intelligence services." [ Sept 23/05]

3. Other documents detail the Vatican's infamous "Ratline" that spirited as many as 30,000 Nazis out of Germany after the WWII. Among those rescued by the Holy See were the notorious Gestapo killers Klaus Barbie, Adolf Eichmann, Gustav Wagner, Franz Stangl (head of the Treblinka extermination facility), members of the SS (Super Sadistic) Waffen Galician Division - and the diabolical Dr. Joseph Mengele, the widely feared "Angel of Death" at the Auschwitz death camp. The Vatican assisted these monsters and many more to reach South America and the USA. Catholic officials linked to the Ratline include Bishop Giovanni Montini, who became Pope Paul VI. [; srpska-mreza. com; archives.cbc. ca;; Vatican Ratline; hartford-hwp. com; American Atheists Nov 27/00;]

Editor's note: The reader is cautioned to not believe that Auschwitz was a death camp, but a concentration camp in which prisoners worked. The gas chambers were built for the tourist trade after WW II ended, and the Auschwitz Museum actually reduced the number of those who died from 4 million down to 1.5 million. Yet Zionists have never reduced the 6 million figure correspondingly.

4. Did a plucky German woman of English descent cross-dress to claim the papacy in 854, as many medieval church chronicles describe "Pope Joan"? [Independent May 21/06]

5. In May 1981, John Paul II was shot by Mehmet Ali Agca. The Pope survived, and forgave Agca in prison. Was the KGB indulging in "payback" for the Vatican's role in funneling more than $12,000,000 in covert American funds to the Solidarity Trade Union in Poland - beginning the breakup of the Soviet Union and ensuring the Church's position in a post-Soviet Europe? What did Agca tell the Pope? [Independent May 21/06]

6. Regarding the church's massive cover-up of predator priests, the Vatican has never admitted what it knew and for how long. What do the archives hide?

7. Vatican records could also add to existing court documents tracing "the flow of money from the Corleone Mafia family to investments in the Vatican bank." Authorities would love to learn more about Liccio Gelli. The former Italian Black Shirt worked closely with the OSS-CIA after the war, founded the Masonic Lodge P-2, and was later linked to an attempted fascist coup in Italy. A close friend of Argentine President Juan Peron, Gelli used his Vatican connections to supply arms and back the dictator's return to power in 1973. Gelli was also a central figure in the collapse of the Banco Ambrosiano, as well as the murder of banker Roberto Calvi, who helped the Vatican Bank's American monsignor Paul Marcinkus set up offshore accounts to launder the Papacy's dirty drug and other monies. [; American Atheists Nov 27/00;;;;;]

In hopes of diffusing charges of a cover-up, the Vatican archives were opened to British author John Cornwell in the late 1990s. An ex-seminarian and author of a book refuting the alleged murder of Pope John Paul I, Cornwell was considered onside. But this lifelong Catholic read only a part of the Pope Pius XII material before finding himself "in a state I can only describe as moral shock. The material I had gathered, taking the more extensive view of [Pius XII's] life, amounted not to an exoneration but to a wider indictment."

When Cornwell's book, Hitler's Pope detonated in 1999, Pius was portrayed as a prelate prepared to accept Nazi atrocities to stem the advance of Stalin's "godless communism." The catacombs slammed shut, and the Church's post-Munich records "remain locked away in the Secret Archive to this day," the Independent reported. Though 40 selected scholars still get to peek in the Vatican archives every day, they are forbidden to see any documents since Hitler's rise to power in 1939.

Editor's note: Hitler rose to power in 1933.

[Independent May 21/06]
Let us, at the same time, be vigilant, that no one may suspect our designs ... You well know that what we aim at is the empire of the world."
-20th Jesuit General "Black Pope," Aloysius Fortis to the secret Conference at Chieri in 1825.

With so much at stake in copying and moving documents that could go astray and blow up the Roman Church, I wanted to know what had precipitated the present papal panic?

According to Hank's Jesuit source, the Vatican is on the verge of being "outed" for one of the biggest Ponzi schemes of all time - bilking its followers and victims for trillions of dollars while convincing believers worldwide that their suffering and exploitation is "God's will."

The catalyst for this threatened exposure? U.S. Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.

I didn't get it.

Romney is a Mormon, Hank quoted his Jesuit insider. "It's kind of making the Vatican nervous as people learn more about Mormonism, which considers Jesus and Satan brothers - the light bearers, the sons of God - and start to ask questions of their own religions."

Vatican viewers had apparently choked on their catechisms when Baptist preacher Mike Huckabee asked his opponent on nationwide TV if the Mormon faith considers Satan and Jesus to be bro's (brothers)?

"Well, technically that's correct. Read the book. Make your own decision," Hank paraphrased Romney's response.

I whistled into the phone. "If one person in a thousand reads the Book of Mormon and thinks, 'There might be something in this ..."

"You got it," Hank prompted.

" ... many fingers will be pointing back at a place that is never on anyone's radars - except for photo ops with the guy in the robes," I finished.

"That's right," Hank agreed. "This hits them in their religion, politics, pocketbook, and influence. It rocks them to their core."

Still, I was perplexed. Long before the primaries, I wasn't even tracking Mitt Romney. "Where the heck did he come from?" I asked Hank.

"That's the point," he responded. "The fact that this guy came out of nowhere and was put on the podium means that the people doing the choosing are not in lockstep any more. The fact that Romney made it past the first 50 million hurdles and get on the stage with everyone else ... that he actually says what he means and means what he says, and can prove it" - is causing lights to burn late in the Vatican. Because according to Hank's informant, even though we're dealing with the supposed tip-top of the global financial power elite, not even the Jesuits know who put him there.

"There are people who tell the Vatican what to do," Hank said.

"People with two arms, two legs, and one head?" I asked.

"One hopes," Hank shot back. "I haven't seen the man behind the curtain yet. I don't know. How much higher can you be than the folks who say, 'If you don't do what we say, you're damned to hell'? Now they're seeing eyes looking back at them. And they're freaking."

According to Hank's Jesuit source, his fellow Jesuits are starting to ask what else the Vatican knows - and can prove - concerning its long history of "infallible" assertions.

"People are going to demand answers. On CSPAN," Hank mused. "Suddenly the fog lifts: 'Ya'll friggin' lied to us for the past thousand years. What the hell?'"

The Vatican is already alarmed over its defecting global constituency. In November 2007, a senior Vatican cardinal told top prelates that the Roman Catholic Church urgently must discern why so many souls it was "battling" over were leaving the Church to join the Pentecostals and other evangelical groups. Cardinal Walter Kasper told more than 100 cardinals that their Church of 840 million believers must confront the "exponential" rise of these charismatic groups, which currently count some 400 million faithful. In formerly Catholic Brazil alone, Roman Catholics accounted for about 90% of the population in the 1960s. By 2005 that count was down to 67%. [AP Nov 23/07; Fortune Dec 21/87]

Given this slippage - and Mitt Romney's public assertions of Lucifer's hidden Christian agenda, which as we will see ties directly to those self-professed Luciferian lightbearers: the Jesuit-founded "Illuminati" and the Big Banks they control - the Vatican is attempting to introduce distraction and "reinforce their power base," Hank had learned, "through the recent housing development problem."

"Wait a minute," I broke in. "You're not saying that the Vatican is behind the mortgage mess.

"Ye are able upon earth to give and to take away empires, kingdoms, principalities, marquisates, duchies, countships, and the possessions of all men ..." -Pope Gregory VII speaking of the papacy (1073)

"The Vatican is the strongest push for banking anywhere in the world," Hank calmly responded. "When it comes to moving money or not moving money, they are the key. Bank of England. That's where they came from. Everything is a promissory note to the Bank of England. The Federal Reserve doesn't come close."

He had a point. Let's take a moment to follow the "money" allegedly in your jeans.

Where do U.S. banks get their marching orders?

From the Federal Reserve that is constantly in the news setting the interest rates that charge or cripple economies. Often seen as a U.S. Government agency, the "Fed" is actually a privately held, for-profit bank that supposedly stands ready to make good on even the dodgiest loans made by U.S. banks that must hold in reserve only 10% of the money they loan. This "fractional reserve banking" means banks can create mortgages and other loans out of thin air.

Another word for this is fraud.

Editor's note: Not only can they create loans out of thin, they DO. Every loan that is created for at least the purchase of a home, is created out of thin air. They enter the loan in a ledger and it exists. No backing exists to lend money.

In usurping the Constitution, which reserves the sole right to mint U.S. currency at zero interest, the illegal Federal Reserve Act passed during Congressional recess Christmas in 1913 essentially enslaved Americans and their successive governments under a mountain of compounding war debts - before being exported as a model worldwide.

The Federal Reserve Act was created by in London by Baron Alfred ("Red Shield") Rothschild. Its final draft was decided at a secret meeting of heavy financial hitters held at JP Morgan's Jekyll Island estate in Georgia. Among those present were Senator Nelson Aldrich, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Warburg, and several senior officials of J.P. Morgan's banks. [Secrets of the Federal Reserve; The Creature from Jekyll Island]

Hold on, advises G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature From Jekyll Island. "We had the Morgans, the Rockefellers, Kuhn, Loeb & Company, the Rothschilds and the Warburgs ... These were the major competitors in the field of investment and banking in those days; these were the giants. Prior to this period they were beating their heads against each other, blood all over the battlefield fighting for dominance in the financial markets of the world. And here they are sitting around a table coming to an agreement of some kind. What's going on here? They came together completely and decided not to compete - they formed a cartel" - to print money, collect taxes, and charge interest to the U.S. Government and other borrowing banks on loans made from nothing.

With his extensive European banking savvy, Warburg was the most knowledgeable banker in the group." Voicing the Jesuit agenda, this non-ordained "cohort" will later tell the Senate: "We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent." [quotes.liberty-]

Mullins recounts how, because of popular opposition to Eastern bankers, "The main problem, as Paul Warburg informed his colleagues, was to avoid the name 'Central Bank.' For that reason, he had decided upon the designation of 'Federal Reserve System.' This would deceive the people."

As Mullins further observes: "This patent removal of the system from Congressional control meant that the Federal Reserve proposal was unconstitutional from its inception." [Secrets of the Federal Reserve]

And Morgan?

John Pierpont Morgan was born in 1837 during the first money panic in the United States, said to have been caused by the House of Rothschild. It was this family who later bailed out Morgan's bank, uniting both houses. [Secrets Of The Federal Reserve;]

According to Eric Jon Phelps, whose prodigious research for Vatican Assassins runs thousands of pages, the executive vice-president of Morgan Bank today is the Sovereign Military Order of Malta's U.S. secretary. "At Morgan Bank's New York headquarters is a telex which links SMOM U.S. to SMOM headquarters in Rome," Phelps states.

DaVinci Code aside, who are the real Knights of Malta? According to their official website, founded in Jerusalem during the 11th century, the 12,500-strong "Order of Malta is a lay, religious order of the Catholic Church [who] seek to glorify God through ... work with the sick and the poor and witness of the Catholic faith." []

This smokescreen site does not mention how this ancient Jesuit order became militarized to hold land won by the first Crusade. Or its many interwoven links with Freemasonry, including the Order's Nazi-borrowed Maltese Cross, which is often depicted with the Roman Empire's double-headed eagle signifying dominion over East and West, above the Masonic inscription: "Order Out of Chaos" - time-proven Mithric recipe used by controlling elites to frighten large populations into begging for the "protection" that enslaves them.

While any Catholic can join the lower order to help the poor, high-level Knights of Malta initiates must count military service and a family coat-of-arms dating back at least 300 years. Current Grand Master, Andrew Willoughby Bertie, photographed with the Pope, is descended from Mary Queen of Scots.

This modern Church "charity" is a sovereign state enjoying diplomatic ties with 94 countries, and Permanent Observer status at the United Nations. The false identities issued by the Vatican to high-ranking Nazi war criminals were Sovereign Knight of Malta passports. [Blackwater;; Ole Andersen Mar 14/01;]

The Knights include many current heads of state, industry, media, and entertainment. For a contemporary example, check out right-wing Christian extremist Joseph Schmitz. Operating under his department shield - "Always Under The Protection Of The Almighty" - this Pentagon's Inspector general brought scandal after scandal to the almighty while overseeing military contractors for the Bush White House from 2002 to 2005. At least 149 contracts totaling more than $42 billion were covered-up by Schmitz as corporations like Halliburton, KBR, Bechtel, Fluor, CACA, Triple Canopy, Dyn Corp and Blackwater cashed in on the crushing of urban Iraq. Schmitz blocked many Congressional probes into graft, corruption and profiteering by such Luciferian-style "luminaries" as Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Iraq's first U.S.-appointed warlord Paul Bremer, and Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin - who called Allah "an idol," and implicated God in massive vote-rigging by saying that God put GW Bush in the White House after the majority of Americans voted against him.

Under heavy fire for blocking investigations into Abu Ghraib torture and Edward Aldridge's $30 Boeing tanker scam, Schmitz resigned from the Bush gang to join Catholic Christian fundamentalist Eric Prince's Blackwater mercenaries in 2005. As crazed as any Taliban radical calling for a return to strict Sharia law, the Pentagon's Schmitz called repeatedly for a government and military "under the rule of law under God." He also - as Jeremy Scahill writes in Blackwater - "proudly listed his membership in the Sovereign Military Order of Malta."

The Knights, as we have seen, also enjoy direct input to the Fed through the Morgan Bank.

"The Pope is the ruler of the World. All the emperors, all the kings, all the princes, all the presidents of the world are as these altar boys of mine." -Fr. David Phelan, Roman Catholic Priest Western Watchman (June 27, 1913)

By June 1932, Congressman Louis McFadden was fed up with the Fed. "We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks ... private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves," the Chair of the House Committee on Banking and Currency told the House of Representatives.

"The United States has been ransacked and pillaged ...The truth is the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the Government of the United States. It controls everything here ... to supply financial power to an international super state - a super state controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world."

Meeting in private with the presidents of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors "controls all economic activity throughout the United States," Mullins explains, "creating money out of nothing" - and manipulating money markets and employment by setting interest rates for the billions of dollars in government bonds floated daily to keep a seriously bankrupt economy afloat. [Secrets of the Federal Reserve]

Since these 12 Federal Reserve Banks are meant to be "unknown to the public," lets name them:

Rothschild Bank Of London Warburg Bank Of Hamburg Rothschild Bank Of Berlin Lehman Brothers Of New York Lazard Brothers Of Paris Kuhn Loeb Bank Of New York Israel Moses Seif Banks Of Italy Goldman-Sachs Of New York Warburg Bank Of Amsterdam Chase Manhattan Bank Of New York [vaticanassassins. org]

Those dollars in your wallet are actually "Federal Reserve notes." These "promises to pay" are not items of intrinsic value called "money." Regardless of denomination, each bill printed by the Bureau of Printing and Engraving in D.C. on contract from the privately held Federal Reserve is actually worth exactly three-tenths of one penny.

No wonder the Fed's founder, Nathan Rothschild, once boasted: "Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws." The privately printed .3 cent thousand-dollar bills streaming in sheets off the presses become "liabilities and obligations of the United States Government, and are added to our present [$6] trillion debt," Mullins mentions. "The government had no debt when the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913." [Secrets of the Federal Reserve]

In case you're wondering, the never properly ratified U.S. income tax was also introduced by busy banksters in 1913 as the only means to finance the wars that ensure perpetual profits from pyramiding public and corporate debt. The U.S. "Federal Income Tax" is not "federal" either.

According to attorney, author and federal witness, Paul Andrew Mitchell, "After much diligent research, several investigators have concluded that there is no known Act of Congress, nor any Executive Order, giving IRS lawful jurisdiction to operate within any of the 50 States of the Union. ... When all the evidence is examined objectively, IRS appears to be a money laundry, extortion racket, and conspiracy to engage in a pattern of racketeering activity, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1951 and 1961 et seq. ("RICO") ... In other words, it is an organized crime syndicate operating under false and fraudulent pretenses."

As Eustace Mullins helpfully explains - and Aaron Russo's DVD "America: Freedom To Fascism" demonstrates - "The IRS is actually a private collection agency for the Federal Reserve System. It originated as the Black Hand in mediaeval Italy, collectors of debt by force and extortion for the ruling Italian mob families. All personal income taxes collected by the IRS are required by law to be deposited in the nearest Federal Reserve Bank."

In other words, into the pockets of the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Schiffs, Rockefellers, Harrimans, Morgans and other elite families. Slick, eh? But don't try to buy any of this hot Fed stock. "The Federal Reserve Act stipulates that the stock of the Federal Reserve Banks cannot be bought or sold on any stock exchange. It is passed on by inheritance as the fortune of the 'big rich'," Mullins relates. "Almost half of the owners of Federal Reserve Bank stock are not Americans."

These "foreign" owners include the Fed's originators, the Vatican Jesuits.

"In a country where there are Jesuits, they must either rule or the country must go to ruin ... it is they who rule the world." -Luigi Desanctis, official Censor of the Inquisition, Protestant Reformed pastor (1852)

"The Great Depression put all the smaller banks out of business and made the Federal Reserve Bank 'lord of all'," Eric Phelps documents. Guess who helped trigger the Great Depression? According to FDR's son-in-law, it was a Knight of Malta named Joseph Kennedy. As Curtis Dall relates: "The feeling around the Street, in succeeding months, was that there were, in particular, three large short-sellers of stock, allegedly, Tom Bragg, Ben Smith, and Joe Kennedy ... Of the three mentioned well-known short-sellers, Joe Kennedy was allegedly the most important, the most powerful and the most successful ... Was Joe Kennedy carefully selected by world money leaders to sell short?"

Today, the largest bank in the world today, the Federal Reserve "is one of the greatest contributors, or players, in international trading," Mullins observes.

The Fed gets its orders from the Queen Mum of All Banks, the Bank of England - aka, the Bank of Rothschild. Considered by many to be the world's most powerful institution - the power behind all presidencies, dictatorships, and thrones - does the Bank of England answer to any other bank?

Well, yes, actually.

The Bank of Rome began opening branch offices in Venice in 1587.

Bank of Rome = Vatican Bank controlled by the Jesuit General, aka the "Black" (hidden, shadowy) Pope.

The Jesuit's Bank of Rome opened its Bank of England branch in 1694. The first bank to be named after a country, the Bank of England had nothing to do with the British government - except to own it through privately held, interest-compounded debt. (See Paul Grignon's excellent "Money Is Debt" animation here.)

Unaccountable to either the Queen or Parliament, the misleadingly labeled "Bank of England" finances the throne, the British prime minister, parliament and much of the planet out of "The City" located in central London. All major British banks have their main offices in this "Square Mile" - as well as 70 U.S. banks. Throw in the London Stock Exchange, Lloyd's of London, the Baltic Exchange (shipping), Fleet Street (publishing and newspapers), the London Commodity and Metal exchanges - and you are looking at Earth's financial axis. [Descent into Slavery]

The City operates as a sovereign state, just like the Vatican. Since 1820, the Rothschilds have traditionally chosen The City's Lord Mayor.

Back in the USA, as author Eric Phelps explained in an interview just before publication of his secrecy-shredding Vatican Assassins, (which was held up to include corrections by sympathetic Jesuits) - the Vatican's Black Robes "own and control" the Federal Reserve Bank "by proxy, through the Knights of Malta, with their various trusts and so on. They never own anything outright; they always own it through a trusted third party."

Including the Vatican-home mortgage connection.

"That the Jesuits were the disturbers of kingdoms, the oppressors of nations, the masters of the world, I freely admit." -Marcel de la Roche Arnauld, Roman Catholic Priest (1827)

"All roads do lead to Rome," I told Hank. We have the Federal Reserve begat by the Bank of England begat by the Bank of Rome. Similarly, the Bank of Canada is an offspring of the Bank of England, which in turn is a child of the Bank of Rome - aka, the Vatican Bank.

And the Vatican, as everyone "knows" is run by the CNN featured "White" Pope. Left untranslated is the coronation moment when the new Pontiff is told in Latin: "Take thou the tiara adorned with the triple crown, and know that thou art the father of princes and kings, and art the governor of the world." [Vatican Assassins]

So who runs the White Pope?

Why the Googleable, shadowy Black Pope of course! The Jesuit General.

The Jesuits, dude.

This irritable tribe of priests, have subverted the pure morality of primitive Christianity to serve their own selfish interests." The Jesuits have "perverted" Christianity "into an engine for enslaving mankind, a mere contrivance to fetch wealth and power to themselves." - Thomas Jefferson

According to Baron Avro Manhattan, author of a jaw-dropping series of Vatican books, "Many historians and researchers and one American Congressman stated that: 'The Vatican through the Jesuit Order controlling the Illuminati is in control of the United States Federal Reserve.'" [Vatican Billions by Avro Manhattan]

That word again.

If "Illuminati" sounds too "conspiratorial" it's because it is! The much-misreferenced "Illuminati" turns out to be a real 15th century German sect established by the Jesuit Adam Weishaupt at the Jesuit's University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria on May 1, 1776.

The Jesuits had been tossed out Rome and every country in Europe for their back-stabbing treachery. As Phelps explained to interviewer Rick Martin: "Weishaupt was the promoter of the Illuminati, with the House of Rothschild, for the punishment of the Catholic monarchs of Europe, and the Pope, for suppressing the Jesuit Order. Weishaupt was under the supervision, at least initially, of Jesuit General Ricci, who died in 1775 in Italy. Weishaupt was under orders." [; illuminati-news. com]

Go that? The "Illuminati" is a real organization founded by the Jesuits at their own German university in the 18th century. In his big book, Phelps explains how the Illuminati took over the House of Rothschild, "creating a colossus of wealth around the world, subject to the Jesuit General." [Vatican Assassins]

Lucifer means the "illuminated one." The Bavarian Illuminati believed they possessed the 'light' Lucifer ripped off when he became Satan.

Editor's note: Some state that Lucifer is not Satan.

Sound familiar, Mr. Romney?

For "Illuminati" today read the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, Counsel on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberger Group, the Trilateral Commission - all real entities with street addresses, exclusive executive meetings, and website masquerades.

Don't roll your eyes. The "illuminated ones" want you to tune out. "They" include men like Pierre Jay. Initiated into the Order of Skull and Bones in 1892, Jay, became the first Chairman of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. A dozen other members of the Federal Reserve are linked to this same dis-Order. [The Secrets of the Federal Reserve]

GW's granddad, Prescott Bush joined Skull and Bones in 1917. Two years later, Adolph Hitler joined the freaky German Skull and Bones society, the Brotherhood of Death. It is well documented that as a director of the London-affiliated New York banking house, Brown Brothers-Harriman, Prescott Bush funded Hitler's political comeback. But no official account mentions that the Harriman Bank, with its various money-moving fronts, was owned and directed by the Rothschild's, who, as the banking bloodline controlling the Central Bank of England, got their money from the Jesuit's Bank of Rome.

This does not mean that the Vatican gets on the phone and issues interest rate changes to the Bank of England and the Fed. Banking at the top doesn't work like that. Rather, the folks taking the bankers' calls are FX money traders who set the currency valuations that influence interest rates and determine the fate of countries - and home mortgage holders.

The so-called "globalist conspiracy" of Knights, Masons, and Bilderberg attendees is really a network of influential industrialists, politicians and media heads who meet regularly in private to "to clear up differences and misunderstandings" - and persuade invited skeptics to join their new world bankers' paradise. They do not occupy some mythical control room pushing buttons that change the players and scenery on the world stage. They don't have to. Bankers and the Vatican follow a much simpler Golden Rule: "Those with the gold make the rules."
