Canisius College // was founded in 1870 by members of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) from Germany and is named after St. Peter Canisius. It is a private college in the Hamlin Park neighborhood of Buffalo, New York, United States. One of 28 Jesuit institutions in the nation, Canisius offers 145 undergraduate majors and minors and around 35 master’s and certificate programs. The college sponsors 20 NCAA Division 1 Athletic teams and is a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC).
History"Canisius" has with roots in the Jesuit community that arose from disputed ownership of St. Louis Church in Buffalo in 1851. Rev. Lucas Caveng, a German Jesuit, along with 19 families from St. Louis Church, founded St. Michael's Church on Washington St. The college followed, primarily for serving sons of German immigrants, along with the high school in 1870, first at 434 Ellicott St. and next to St. Michael's. In 1913 construction of the Old Main building at 2001 Main St. was completed. The early presidents of the college were German Jesuits.
AcademicsCanisius offers more than 100 majors, minors, and special programs. The college is accredited by the Middle States Association Commission on Higher Education, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In fall 2009, Canisius College introduced a new major in Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation. Other new majors include Creative Writing, Health and Wellness, and Journalism. With the George E. Schreiner '43, MD, Pre-Medical Center as an asset, the college caters strongly to the biological and health science fields and holds close relationships with both the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM).
Canisius is a Jesuit institution founded in 1870.
Seems appropriate, given the Jesuit Order's interest in hearing people's confessions and accumulating knowledge that one of their people would be som involved in telecommunications, an ideal positioning to spy upon people in general.
According to Democrat Party candidate for U.S. president Hillary Clinton, Trump's remarks in 2005 disqualify him from ever holding that position- a standard that would logically likewise disqualify her husband Bill Clinton from ever holding that very same position.
See Hillary Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine:
The incriminating 2005 Verizon Wireless Access Hollywood audio-video sat in obscurity for over a decade, only to be publicly released in an October 8, 20016 article in The Washington Post, just prior to the 2nd Trump-Clinton debate held in St. Louis, Missouri on October 9, 2016, and within hours of a wiki-leaks public release of Hillary Clinton related emails. According to that Washington Post article, the date of that audio-video was apparently September 16, 2005.
A jesuitical move to shift public voter opinion against Trump, in order to favor what would logically be the Jesuit preferred ticket with one of its very own in the #2 position?
