Jesuitical Deniers of the Holocaust of Jewish Peoples

Why holocaust deniers get public exposure, but not exposers of the Vatican's crimes, such as those of WW1-WW2 Superior General Wlodimir Ledochowski

The three "I" of "Instigate, Identify and Inquisition"





Also today the Italian media are spreading anti-Semitism. Of course in the most effective way. Take a ‘researcher’ on the ‘lies’ of the Holocaust, and attack him with a choreographed aggression. Of course he is supported by a consistent net of “Holocaust denier” source of information. The “Holocaust deniers” are fighting against “the most powerful plot never existed in the world”, but strangely they can always supply the society with their thesis. Strange, very strange. I, who am dealing with the Jesuits’ plot, am practically living isolated, hated and despised by anyone. Why the books of Eric John Phelps, or the blog of Douglas Willinger, are nearly a fact of clandestinity? If the church of Rome is only an optional of the world global elite, why is it that you, except the usual emarginated and isolated ones, you hear nothing about the Vatican and Jesuits as creator of National Socialism, of Bolshevism, of the SS? Damn, the priests of Rome aren’t Jews, but is seems that they are thousands of times more powerful than the Jews, who aren’t able to shut the mouth of the “Holocaust lies” propaganda, at the opposite, the more they are hitting it, the more it grows….

Once, when the Jesuit Red brigades where destroying the old political balance in order to introduce the new one of the Socialist and Christian democratic parties and to pursue another step in the restoration of the Pontifical reign, the press was suggested to not publish the thesis and to not gives echo to the Communist terrorists. This strategy is applied to the ones who are exposing the Vatican and the Jesuits as the creator of the New World Order. And as the priests of Rome can’t expose themselves with their almighty control of the world events, they always spread their propaganda and their forma-mentis through puppets who are apparently not-linked with mother church of Rome, but whose personal and public life become a little pedagogical Maoist theatre to train the Masses.

Concepts and especially sentiments like the hate towards the Jews are impossible to introduce via governmental decree. The same books and ideological works are not sufficient to pursue this goal if not accompanied by a strong living theatre which will allow to the masses to experience in first line the sentiment that has to be spread in the society. Take a ‘courageous’ Holocaust deniers who is member of the party of Berlusconi, ‘beat’ him in front of the masses exactly like you are prepared to do with the Jews. Do this cause his denial of the Holocaust. At the same time you would push your papal Jews of the Latin Kingdom (Israel) in a war with their brothers Masonic Muslims of the pope of Hamas and Hezbollah. Of course the guilty for the blood poured will be exclusively putted on the shoulder of the Jews and not of the Muslims. You will not tell the people that you ‘spend’ ten Arab civilians in order to have the pleasure to see one Jew murdered. You’ll not tell the masses that the same elite of Hamas and Hezbollah are the first beneficiary of the murder of the Islamic civilians and hence are disposed to ‘spend’ them exactly like Bush jr. ‘spent’ 3,000 Americans in the Twin Towers attack.

It doesn’t need to shake it all, because the reaction is spontaneous: anti-Semitism is again, magically, created. It remains some interesting points. Meanwhile today one of the news is telling about the presence in Facebook of the “Holocaust denier” of Berlusconi, Antonio Caracciolo, who has been condemned by a “…very, but very scandalized Communist Jesuit-Masonic third tv news!…” (whose spiritual father, Karl Marx, was an anti-Semite), yesterday the Facebook group “Uccidiamo Berlusconi” (“Let’s kill Berlusconi”) captured the attention of the media.

Since September 2008 it exists a group whose title is an incitement to kill the prime minister of the Republic. What could you think about? You can only see how my “Is ‘God’ cleansing Italy?” message is confirmed. For more than a year a Jesuit intelligence group with the task to detect the potential enemies of the Roman Catholic Constantine knight Silvio Berlusconi has worked. “Instigate, identify and Inquisition”. It works so since millennium. It worked with the Cathar’s heresy (spread very probable by the assassin sect of Templars), it worked for example in China (100 Flowers’ revolution), it worked with Salaman Rushdie who helped the pope of Teheran (and the Black pope of Rome) to detect the enemies of their war all around the world. It worked and works with the Tibet clashes, which helped to instigate and detect the ‘heretics’ inside Red Jesuit China. It works with the electoral provocation of the Assassin Ahmadinejad today in Iran. And it worked very well with the instigation of the encyclical “Mit brennender Sorge” in the Germany of Catholic Hitler.


“Mit brennender Sorge”. An encyclical to instigate, identify and to purge the Roman Catholic of Germany not aligned with the extermination of the Jews policy of the puppet of Vatican, the corporal Adolph Hitler (*) . And today you have again a sort of provocation. An instigation. For more an year they classified the people thanks to “Let’s Kill Berlusconi” Facebook group. Today – with a good timing - it appears the ‘scandal’ of the “Holocaust denier” Caracciolo. Do they have to select the true anti-Semite from the false ones? But they just did the job and Antonio Caracciolo was the central key in the identification work. In less than three months it will start the 2010 and the Jesuit baits on Facebook have discharged their duty. Its time now to harvest.

I told you about the 2010, its coming, but the Chemtrails are more ‘trendy’ and especially the emotion they can give are less powerful and dangerous of the ones you feel when you are staring the Beast directly in her eyes, instead to watch her white long farts in the blue sky.

(And now two examples of censorship. First, I see that they continually are trying to hide from the front page of Google the options to change the language. I can use Slovenian, English, German and of course the Italian language. They are trying with every means to shut my mouth, I haven't doubt about that! Second.After having heard the news, I was searching on Google with the words “berlusconi + svastica + arcore + mausoleo” to see if there are images of the big svastika – a replica of the one of the first Thule society logo – on the floor of the entrance of the Berlusconi’s mausoleum in the town of Arcore near Miland....
....The svastika is hidden by the opportune black strip:
It is a not a strange link the svastika of Berlusconi with his party member Antonio Caracciolo, the “Holocaust denier”. But it occurs a strange fact when searching. Even if the numbers of the page were reaching the number “25”, I was able to search only till the page “16”. Clicking on the page “21” for example, or similar one greater than “16”, you are putted back before the page “16”. Sixteen as the half of 32, the Canon of the Council of Trent.. To have the indisputable proof I substituted the word “svastica” with the word “sindaco” (“major”) and finally the searching engine was allowing to me to reach every page over the page “16”. Google macht frei”.)

Barack Hussein Obama To Ban 'Blasphemy'?!



Just say no to blasphemy laws

Perhaps in an effort to rehabilitate the United States’ image in the Muslim world, the Obama administration has joined a U.N. effort to restrict religious speech. This country should never sacrifice freedom of expression on the altar of religion.

By Jonathan Turley

Around the world, free speech is being sacrificed on the altar of religion. Whether defined as hate speech, discrimination or simple blasphemy, governments are declaring unlimited free speech as the enemy of freedom of religion. This growing movement has reached the United Nations, where religiously conservative countries received a boost in their campaign to pass an international blasphemy law. It came from the most unlikely of places: the United States.

While attracting surprisingly little attention, the Obama administration supported the effort of largely Muslim nations in the U.N. Human Rights Council to recognize exceptions to free speech for any "negative racial and religious stereotyping." The exception was made as part of a resolution supporting free speech that passed this month, but it is the exception, not the rule that worries civil libertarians. Though the resolution was passed unanimously, European and developing countries made it clear that they remain at odds on the issue of protecting religions from criticism. It is viewed as a transparent bid to appeal to the "Muslim street" and our Arab allies, with the administration seeking greater coexistence through the curtailment of objectionable speech. Though it has no direct enforcement (and is weaker than earlier versions), it is still viewed as a victory for those who sought to juxtapose and balance the rights of speech and religion.

A 'misused' freedom?

In the resolution, the administration aligned itself with Egypt, which has long been criticized for prosecuting artists, activists and journalists for insulting Islam. For example, Egypt recently banned a journal that published respected poet Helmi Salem merely because one of his poems compared God to a villager who feeds ducks and milks cows. The Egyptian ambassador to the U.N., Hisham Badr, wasted no time in heralding the new consensus with the U.S. that "freedom of expression has been sometimes misused" and showing that the "true nature of this right" must yield government limitations.

His U.S. counterpart, Douglas Griffiths, heralded "this joint project with Egypt" and supported the resolution to achieve "tolerance and the dignity of all human beings." While not expressly endorsing blasphemy prosecutions, the administration departed from other Western allies in supporting efforts to balance free speech against the protecting of religious groups.

Thinly disguised blasphemy laws are often defended as necessary to protect the ideals of tolerance and pluralism. They ignore the fact that the laws achieve tolerance through the ultimate act of intolerance: criminalizing the ability of some individuals to denounce sacred or sensitive values. We do not need free speech to protect popular thoughts or popular people. It is designed to protect those who challenge the majority and its institutions. Criticism of religion is the very measure of the guarantee of free speech — the literal sacred institution of society.

Blasphemy prosecutions in the West appear to have increased after the riots by Muslims following the publication of cartoons disrespecting prophet Mohammed in Denmark in 2005. Rioters killed Christians, burned churches and called for the execution of the cartoonists. While Western countries publicly defended free speech, some quietly moved to deter those who'd cause further controversies through unpopular speech.

In Britain, it is a crime to "abuse" or "threaten" a religion under the Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006. A 15-year-old boy was charged last year for holding up a sign outside a Scientology building declaring, "Scientology is not a religion, it is a dangerous cult. "In France, famed actress Brigitte Bardot was convicted for saying in 2006 that Muslims were ruining France in a letter to then-Interior Minister (and now President) Nicolas Sarkozy. This year, Ireland joined this self-destructive trend with a blasphemy law that calls for the prosecution of anyone who writes or utters views deemed "grossly abusive or insulting in relation to matters held sacred by any religion, thereby causing outrage among a substantial number of the adherents of that religion; and he or she intends, by the publication of the matter concerned, to cause such outrage."

'Blasphemy' incidents

Consider just a few such Western "blasphemy" cases in the past two years:

• In Holland, Dutch prosecutors arrested cartoonist Gregorius Nekschot for insulting Christians and Muslims with cartoons, including one that caricatured a Christian fundamentalist and a Muslim fundamentalist as zombies who want to marry and attend gay rallies.

• In Canada, the Alberta human rights commission punished the Rev. Stephen Boission and the Concerned Christian Coalition for anti-gay speech, not only awarding damages but also censuring future speech that the commission deems inappropriate.

• In Italy, comedian Sabina Guzzanti was put under criminal investigation for joking at a rally that "in 20 years, the pope will be where he ought to be — in hell, tormented by great big poofter (gay) devils, and very active ones."

• In London, an aide to British Foreign Secretary David Miliband was arrested for "inciting religious hatred" at his gym by shouting obscenities about Jews while watching news reports of Israel's bombardment of Gaza.Also, Dutch politician Geert Wilders was barred from entering Britain as a "threat to public policy, public security or public health" because he made a movie describing the Quran as a "fascist" book and Islam as a violent religion.

• In Poland, Catholic magazine Gosc Niedzielny was fined $11,000 for inciting "contempt, hostility and malice"by comparing the abortion of a woman to the medical experiments at Auschwitz.

The "blasphemy" cases include the prosecution of writers for calling Mohammed a "pedophile" because of his marriage to 6-year-old Aisha (which was consummated when she was 9). A far-right legislator in Austria, a publisher in India and a city councilman in Finland have been prosecuted for repeating this view of the historical record.

In the flipside of the cartoon controversy, Dutch prosecutors this year have brought charges against the Arab European League for a cartoon questioning the Holocaust.

What's next?

Private companies and institutions are following suit in what could be seen as responding to the Egyptian-U.S. call for greater "responsibility" in controlling speech. For example, in an act of unprecedented cowardice and self-censorship, Yale University Press published The Cartoons That Shook the World, a book by Jytte Klausen on the original Mohammed cartoons. Yale, however, (over Klausen's objections) cut the actual pictures of the cartoons. It was akin to publishing a book on the Sistine Chapel while barring any images of the paintings.

The public and private curtailment on religious criticism threatens religious and secular speakers alike. However, the fear is that, when speech becomes sacrilegious, only the religious will have true free speech. It is a danger that has become all the more real after the decision of the Obama administration to join in the effort to craft a new faith-based speech standard. It is now up to Congress and the public to be heard before the world leaves free speech with little more than a hope and a prayer.

Papist Queen E2

Anglican Church to fold back into the Roman Catholic Church
while Cromwell spins in his grave

Letter from Craig Oxley:
Please make sure you take a look at this information just in and also my additions to help back it all up. Theres a devious plan about to bring about the unity of the Church of Rome (false paganism) with the Church of England (once followers of KJAV1611 not no more and once again paganism).


Queen 'appalled' at Church of England
moves, claim Vatican moles

When Pope Benedict visits this country next year, he is expected to stay at Buckingham Palace as a guest of the Queen. The warmth of her welcome will come as no surprise to the Pontiff, if senior sources at the Vatican are to be believed.


According to informants quoted in The Catholic Herald, the Queen has "grown increasingly sympathetic" to the Catholic Church over the years while being "appalled", along with the Prince of Wales, at developments in the Church of England.

The usually well-informed newspaper adds that the Queen, who is the Supreme Governor of the C of E, is "also said to have an affinity with the Holy Father, who is of her generation".

In July, The Sunday Telegraph disclosed that the Queen had told the heads of a traditionalist group, formed in response to the liberal direction of some parts of the Anglican Communion, that she "understood their concerns" about the future of the 80 million-strong global church.

One leading evangelical said: "We found the letters very supportive."

Her intervention was predicted to have surprised many because the group, called the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, was feared by some to be a divisive force and one of its senior figures was this accused of being homophobic.

The then Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, called on homosexuals to repent. He said the Church of England must stick to the Biblical teaching that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.

"We want to hold on to the traditional teaching of the Church," he said. "We don't want to be rolled over by culture and trends in the Church," said the bishop, who was one of the most senior religious figures in England.

Roman Catholic Bishops’ Conference and Church of England
House of Bishops join together for second bi-lateral meeting

17 November 2008

The Church of England House of Bishops and the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales are joining together for a second bi-lateral meeting, this time at Lambeth Palace, today, Monday, November 17. In 2006, they met together in Leeds for study and worship.

They will be chaired by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams and the Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor.

The meeting takes the form of a spiritual retreat reflecting on the office and ministry of bishops as Christ’s disciples. The day is based on prayer, discussion and a desire for further development of our churches’ shared Christian witness. Scripture readings and addresses by the Archbishop and the Cardinal will guide the bishops’ reflections.

Statement from Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, and Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor.

“Following the successful meeting and joint worship in Leeds in 2006, we have been looking forward to meeting again to reflect and pray together. We are sure the day will help develop our common Christian witness and the warm relations that exist between the Anglican and Catholic Bishops in England & Wales, both locally and on shared national projects

“On our journey forward, though our communion remains imperfect, our partnership in mission and service to the people of our country is based on our Christian faith and rooted in our common baptism. Presenting our shared Christian witness to society, and working together to for the common good in society, continues to be crucially important for us.”

The meeting is held in line with the mandate of the International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission (Communion in Mission, Mississauga, May 2000: see notes to editors below). IARCCUM is a joint commission of bishops, responsible to the Anglican Communion and the Holy See for finding practical ways to express the fruits of the dialogue between Anglicans and Roman Catholics. Its mandate draws on the recommendations of the Anglican-Roman Catholic Joint Preparatory Commission in Malta, in 1968.

Church of England enjoys revival in France
- thanks to Roman Catholic buildings

August 1, 2009
Adam Sage in Paris

They sing All Things Bright and Beautiful and enjoy tea and coffee with the vicar in the church hall after the service. Welcome to France, where the Church of England is enjoying an unlikely boom — in Roman Catholic churches.

Far from the falling congregations and controversies that have marked recent Anglican history in Britain, French chaplaincies say that they are attracting an increasing number of worshippers. Tomorrow, for instance, hundreds of people will attend services in the Dordogne and other regions that have become home to British expatriates.

Almost all will be held in churches lent by the local Catholic clergy, who are often happy to see otherwise underused buildings resonate to the sound of hymns and prayers, albeit in English.

In St Joseph’s Church in Biarritz, southwest France, for example, Catholics will attend Mass at 9.30am. As they leave an hour and a quarter later, the Rev Peter Dawson and his flock will begin a Church of England service.

Mr Dawson, 64, was ordained in Britain and moved to France four years ago for what he intended to be a “gap decade”. But in the face of a growing demand for Church of England services, he was called out of retirement to take over the Biarritz parish. “I always try to have tea and coffee with the worshippers in the church hall after the service,” he said.

In the Dordogne an informal arrangement for Anglicans to borrow Catholic churches was given an official stamp of approval by the Roman Catholic diocese of Périguex-Sarlat last year. It signed an agreement for eight churches to be used by the Church of England regularly.

Father Jean-Marie Bouron, general secretary of the diocese, said there was just one condition — that a notice is put on the church door when Anglican services are held. “We understand that many English people here want Anglican services, marriages and christenings. But local people might be surprised if they walked in without knowing.”

He said that local Catholics had accepted the arrival of Church of England vicars — many of whom are married with children — “with no reluctance at all”.

His comments were backed by the Rev Gill Strachan, a Church of England curate in southwest France, who said that relations with local Catholics were mostly “excellent”. However, she added that one Catholic priest had taken a stand against having a woman conducting services in his church, forcing her to step aside in that parish.

Elsewhere, the presence of Church of England worshippers — and their donations — was welcome. “Some Roman Catholic churches here are used once a month on a Saturday evening,” Ms Strachan said. “We use them six times a month.”

Dr Paul Vrolijk, the chaplain of Aquitaine in southwest France, said that the Church of England was holding more services and attracting bigger congregations than ever before.

The rise comes despite evidence that the increase in the British community as a whole has reached a plateau as expatriates move back to Britain. “We are definitely in the growth mode,” said Dr Vrolijk, adding that the chaplaincy welcomed “English speakers or any nationality and any denomination.”

The Venerable Kenneth Letts, the Archdeacon of France, said that congregations had increased by a third over the past 12 years in Nice on the French Riviera, where he is based.

All Jesuit controlled infiltration, destruction and rebirth amalgamation. All with the full acceptance of their Temporal Coadjutors working for full Temporal Power over the new unholy Roman Empire. These tricks will lure a sheople populance into accepting Rome openly as one once again whilst ancestors died to remove its chains such as Oliver Cromwell whos turning in his grave right this minute.

Churches back plan to unite under Pope

Ruth Gledhill, Religion Correspondent

Radical proposals to reunite Anglicans with the Roman Catholic Church under the leadership of the Pope are to be published this year, The Times has learnt.

The proposals have been agreed by senior bishops of both churches.

In a 42-page statement prepared by an international commission of both churches, Anglicans and Roman Catholics are urged to explore how they might reunite under the Pope.

The statement, leaked to The Times, is being considered by the Vatican, where Catholic bishops are preparing a formal response.

It comes as the archbishops who lead the 38 provinces of the Anglican Communion meet in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in an attempt to avoid schism over gay ordination and other liberal doctrines that have taken hold in parts of the Western Church.

The 36 primates at the gathering will be aware that the Pope, while still a cardinal, sent a message of support to the orthodox wing of the Episcopal Church of the US as it struggled to cope with the fallout after the ordination of the gay bishop Gene Robinson.

Were this week’s discussions to lead to a split between liberals and conservatives, many of the former objections in Rome to a reunion with Anglican conservatives would disappear. Many of those Anglicans who object most strongly to gay ordination also oppose the ordination of women priests.

Rome has already shown itself willing to be flexible on the subject of celibacywhen it received dozens of married priests from the Church of England into the Catholic priesthood after they left over the issue of women’s ordination.

There are about 78 million Anglicans, compared with a billion Roman Catholics, worldwide. In England and Wales, the Catholic Church is set to overtake Anglicanism as the predominant Christian denomination for the first time since the Reformation, thanks to immigration from Catholic countries.

As the Anglicans’ squabbles over the fundamentals of Christian doctrine continue — with seven of the conservative primates twice refusing to share Communion with the other Anglican leaders at their meeting in Tanzania — the Church’s credibility is being increasingly undermined in a world that is looking for strong witness from its international religious leaders.

The Anglicans will attempt to resolve their differences today by publishing a new Anglican Covenant, an attempt to provide a doctrinal statement under which they can unite.

But many fear that the divisions have gone too far to be bridged and that, if they cannot even share Communion with each other, there is little hope that they will agree on a statement of common doctrine.

The latest Anglican-Catholic report could hardly come at a more sensitive time. It has been drawn up by the International Anglican-Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission, which is chaired by the Right Rev David Beetge, an Anglican bishop from South Africa, and the Most Rev John Bathersby, the Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane, Australia.

The commission was set up in 2000 by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey of Clifton, and Cardinal Edward Cassidy, then head of the Vatican’s Council for Christian Unity. Its aim was to find a way of moving towards unity through “common life and mission”.

The document leaked to The Times is the commission’s first statement, Growing Together in Unity and Mission. The report acknowledges the “imperfect communion” between the two churches but says that there is enough common ground to make its “call for action” about the Pope and other issues.

In one significant passage the report notes: “The Roman Catholic Church teaches that the ministry of the Bishop of Rome [the Pope] as universal primate is in accordance with Christ’s will for the Church and an essential element of maintaining it in unity and truth.” Anglicans rejected the Bishop of Rome as universal primate in the 16th century. Today, however, some Anglicans are beginning to see the potential value of a ministry of universal primacy, which would be exercised by the Bishop of Rome, as a sign and focus of unity within a reunited Church.

In another paragraph the report goes even further: “We urge Anglicans and Roman Catholics to explore together how the ministry of the Bishop of Rome might be offered and received in order to assist our Communions to grow towards full, ecclesial communion.”

Other recommendations include inviting lay and ordained members of both denominations to attend each other’s synodical and collegial gatherings and conferences. Anglican bishops could be invited to accompany Catholic ones on visits to Rome.

The report adds that special “protocols” should also be drawn up to handle the movement of clergy from one Church to the other. Other proposals include common teaching resources for children in Sunday schools and attendance at each other’s services, pilgrimages and processions.

Anglicans are also urged to begin praying for the Pope during the intercessionary prayers in church services, and Catholics are asked also to pray publicly for the Archbishop of Canterbury.

In today’s Anglican Church, it is unlikely that a majority of parishioners would wish to heal the centuries-old rift and return to Rome.

However, the stance of the Archbishop of Canterbury over the present dispute dividing his Church gives an indication of how priorities could be changing in light of the gospel imperative towards church unity.

Dr Rowan Williams, who as Primate of the Church of England is its “focus for unity”, has in the past supported a liberal interpretation of Scripture on the gay issue. But he has made it clear that church unity must come before provincial autonomy. A logical extension of that, once this crisis is overcome either by agreement or schism, would be to seek reunion with the Church of England's own mother Church.

Yes more proof of what we speak of about this treasonous whore working for the Supreme Pontiff the Popish one. She's subordinate to 114 Mount Street, 58 Grove End Road, St John's Wood and of course 42 Francis Street. All of which are based in Jesuit controlled Westminster the Romanish arm over their unholy Roman Empire. The Queen is controlled by Michael Holman SJ, Vincent Nichols, Fredrik Stuart, David Smith, Ralph Perci & Edward Howard who all work under the control of the war rooms of missile protected, Borgo Spirito Santo command center based within Rome but sovereign in truth. When you hear stories that the Queen dislikes the European Union and is the protector of the faith of the Church of England you know this is an utter lie. She adores the European Union and detests the Church of England and the sovereign nation of England. Its all a Luciferian front controlled by Pepe Orsini and Henry Breakspear along with the Papal Bloodlines of Aldobrandini (self confessed Nephilim to Nobles), Somaglia, Farnese, Orsini and Breakspear. This is the Superior Inconnu and the Arcana Arcanorum. Prince Philip is petrified of 114 Mount Street and will never bring about a new attack front against the power of Rome. His subordinate, the Prince of Naples may mouth off about nuking Borgo Spirito Santo but the pair of them have no balls to even attempt it. Mind you Prince Philip is quick enough to assassinate Princesses who have the right to actually be on the throne from family lineage unlike him and the rest of the Teutonic bunch! The English people need to move away from the pound and any future Euro currency. Remove yourselves from the war banks and the current one known as the Bank of England by way of using and saving only in precious metals. It is time for Lawful Rebellion outside the illusion Maritime Admiralty game being played. Remember William of Orange III was a fraud and gave England its war bank for the Jesuits under a false guise of Protestantism. Lets not forget how these monsters are trying to indoctrinate your children they call kids via the likes of Defense contract, General Dynamics whilst profiling everything about them and you as a mere babysitter for the state. What do I mean by that? Since you created the birth certificate and handed full ownership of your child to Rome. Do not register anything! Be careful the military are controlling your every move and especially your childrens in their so-called schools, colleges and academies. They'll be given a specific task/job in society never to be able to improve or change role. Its all based on the profiling whilst making sure they're not individuals but World Citizens. -Craig Oxley


Craig, you write:

"The Queen is controlled by Michael Holman SJ, Vincent Nichols, Fredrik Stuart, David Smith, Ralph Perci & Edward Howard"

Well we know of the Jesuit British Provincial Michael Holman, the Provincial Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols & SMOM Grand Prior of England: Fredrik Crichton-Stuart (note that he's also a Knight Commander of Justice of the Franco-Neapolitan branch of the Constantinian Order).

But David Smith, Ralph Perci & Edward Howard? Who are they?

David Smith? Well I can find this one:


"In retirement he continues to serve as an Honorary Assistant Bishop within the Diocese of York."

Doesn't seem to fit the bill though.

Ralph Perci? Do you mean: Ralph Percy, 12th Duke of Northumberland?


"... British peer ... He ranked 163rd in the Sunday Times Rich List 2005, with an estimated wealth of £300 million. ... On 12 May 2009 his wife was appointed the new Lord Lieutenant of Northumberland."

Presumably not.

Edward Howard? I can find:

Edward Fitzalan-Howard, 18th Duke of Norfolk


Who does seem to be an interesting character at least:

"Edward was educated at Ampleforth, a Catholic independent school. He then attended Lincoln College, Oxford. ... In 2002, Edward inherited the Dukedom of Norfolk, as well as a number of Earldoms, Baronies, hereditary offices, and titles attached to the Dukedom from his father. His office of Earl Marshal, one of the Great Officers of State, makes him responsible for State occasions, such as coronations and the State Opening of Parliament. He also is, by virtue of this office, one of the hereditary judges in the Court of Chivalry and head of the College of Arms, responsible for heraldry in England and Wales as well as other parts of the Commonwealth of Nations."

Or do you mean someone else?

So come on Craig, spill the beans: Who are the David Smith, Ralph Perci & Edward Howard that you name?

As I said in my email to you; you're correct in much of your observations. The David Smith I'm referring to is the Lieutenant of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem within England and Wales. Don't under estimate the power of the Duke of Northumberland or the Duke of Norfolk. I suggest you go over information I provided in a prior thread tying in with the Jesuit plot against Parliament with Guy Fawkes.

heres a clue; http://z10.invisionfree.com/The_Unhived_Mi...?showtopic=9917


Craig, while I feel that there is no question that the Archbishop of Westminster (Nichols) the Jesuit UK Provincial (Holman) oversee the Queen, I surmise that the SMOM English Grand Master is on a more equal footing with the OSJ's (Order of St John) Sovereign QEII, both answering to the Pope & Black Pope via Nichols & Holman respectively, Nichols deferring to Holman of course. Holman's intermediaries to the Black Pope being Mark Rotsaert, President of the Conference (typo-ed as "Concert" in my email - oops!) of European Provincials (CEP) & Rotsaert's Assistant & CEP Executive Secretary Dermot O'Connor.

Note that there are 33 Jesuit European Conference Members under Rotsaert!


Also: I can see why you mentioned this Smith character then. Surprised to see Ralph Percy & Edward Fitzalan-Howard listed in this group though Craig. Any more info would be appreciated.

Gotcha, just checked out the above link.

Craig: Have you considered putting just the Papal Bloodlines thread posts at a blog? This information needs highlighting all in itself & gets lost in amongst all of the thread posts at Unhived Mind. I find it very hard to get a grip on it all, as its stuck in with everything else.

You could even call it the Unhived Mind Unveils the Papal Bloodlines! ;D

Seriously, I think that you should consider it. That Farnese Gesu Church business, for example, needs wider exposure. Have it all linking back to the original UHM II threads for more traffic too.

Remember that black Jesuit Assistant Antione Kerhuel controls the United Kingdom from missile protected Borgo Spirito Santo, Rome, Italy. All under the watchful eyes of course of the grey Jesuit Breakspeare bloodline. A Papal bloodline much harder to delve into than the others whilst it controls the Anglo-American establishment. Lets not forget Henry Breakspeare who resides in Macau, China. The East being the new base location for these internationalist elders.

by Barry Chamish

At 9:20 PM, July 16,1999, John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. radioed the tower at an airport near Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts announcing that he was preparing to land. Seconds after, his plane exploded in mid-air, and this was witnessed by several witnesses including a local newspaper reporter and an attorney. On board were his wife Caroline Bessette and her sister Lauren. Lauren's luggage was recovered miles from the crash site, an event that can only be caused by a mid-air explosion.

For reasons that would later become clear, search for the missing plane was delayed for 5 hours, when Pres. William "Bill" Clinton sent out the equivalent of the Sixth Fleet to find the wreckage, hide it and the bodies from the snoopy media, and though JFK Jr. was never in the Navy, and though the families did not consent, cremate the corpses, or evidence, and throw the ashes into the water in a quickly planned, elaborate, Navy funeral at sea.

Behind the scenes, a hokey cover story was concocted. The weather, which was perfect, became stormy. JFK Jr. had a gimpy leg. Reports by the FAA and FBI, both concluding foul play was involved, were buried, the arrival of Israeli PM Ehud Barak to Clinton's court the day before was given an alternative explanation...In fact JFK Jr.'s profound affect on Israel was never mentioned.

But it was huge. In the March, 1997 issue of his magazine, George, JFK Jr. became the only publisher of a major American publication to expose the conspiracy to murder Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. His 13 page expose shook the Israeli establishment to it's foundations:

Jewish Web Network News April 02 1997

Israeli Prime Minister Rabin's widow charged Tuesday that John Kennedy Jr.'s magazine crossed "the red line" by publishing an article by the mother of her husband's assassin. "How, of all people, could he do such a thing?" Mrs. Kennedy asked of the son of President Kennedy who was assassinated in 1963. "Perhaps he needed a sensational story to sell his paper. I would expect that he would take a higher moral stand in his paper."

The article claimed that Amir was goaded to shoot Rabin by an undercover agent for the Shin Bet, Israel's security agency. (It) thought it would be done with a doctored gun. The security force let the attack happen so they could take credit for saving the prime minister.

And JFK Jr. was about to publish the final truth about Rabin's murder. This, Israel could not allow. It's operatives were called into action.This interview with JFK Jr.'s driver appeared in Maariv shortly after the Piper crash.


Yoel Katzavman drove John Jr. 48 hours before the plane broke up. "He was a quiet and humble client."

"How could he have flown that plane with a broken leg? It was really suicidal?," said Yoel Katzavman (38), a limousine driver born in Hakiriot, who drove the Kennedy couple many times. Katzavman arrived in the US three years before and was employed by the Empire limousine service. He was often called to drive John Jr. and Carolyn Kennedy from their New York apartment. He recalls his last ride with John Jr., less than 48 hours before the final takeoff.

It was this self-serving interview that raised my suspicions and I went looking. Here is what I wrote in July, 2009:

So now what do we do about the information coming out on the explosion of JFK Jr.'s plane? The day it happened I wrote that JFK Jr. was doing more than any other American media figure to get to the bottom of the Rabin assassination truth. I reminded readers that his magazine George ran a 13 page expose of the Shabak's involvement in the assassination. I suggested that this was a brave but risky stand. Then came the tidal wave of data. The FBI Preliminary Report confirming the bomb on the plane and noting the type of explosive was used by certain foreign intelligence services. This was followed by Catherine Crier of Fox TV's The Crier Report, announcing that JFK Jr. was about to meet high ranking Mossad officers to get the full story on the Rabin assassination. Then the German newspaper, Franfurter Allgemaine Zeitung, reported that Kennedy had met with the deputy chief of the Mossad, Amiram Levine to get the full story on the Rabin assassination two days before his plane went down. Then Maariv ran an interview with JFK's chauffeur, who happens to be Israeli. Then people started noting that Ehud Barak was in Washington at the time of Kennedy's finale in life.

And I was not alone in my investigation:

WORLD AFFAIRS BRIEF August 27 1999 Copyright Joel M. Skousen.
Quotations with attribution permitted.


Evidence continues to mount that JFK jr. and passengers were
killed by an altitude triggered bomb planted in the tail section of the

Here is the evidence: Kennedy*s sister in law's ( Lauren
Bessette ) suitcase was found miles out in the ocean, away from the crash
site. Lawyer Victor Pribanic was on the shore fishing and heard the
explosion from the same location and time frame where the plane went
down. The wreckage of the plane was recovered under *national security*
conditions and no reporters were allowed to see or photograph it. The
wreckage was loaded on to sealed containers and taken away. The FAA report
indicated the recovered engine was fully functional. The presumed bad
weather that caused Kennedy to spiral into the water was some 8 miles
away from the crash site at that time, so the report of bad weather was
part of the cover-up.

Soon after, a correspondent wrote me:

re JFK Jr.

At the time his plane went down, I was living in Massachusetts.
Kerryville. The state has gone under.

On the particular day, I heard the news.

A reporter for The Vineyard Gazette who was on the island, was quoted as having seen the plane come down to land, and to have seen a flash on the plane. Next thing the plane went out of control and crashed into the sea below.
He was quoted on the internet saying this.

Having been a reporter, and having seen many other events go down [I get put in this situations, to witness, etc.] I decided to call the reporter in question.
Somehow I quickly reached him.

He repeated the story.

Next, the article disappeared from the internet, and no more report was made on the news which included any of the information from the eye-witness reporter.
Next, I noticed this disappearance of the article, and called the reporter back.
All of a sudden he no longer existed.

I couldn't find him no matter what I did, despite my having spoken to him hours before.


There were reports that JFK Jr. was planning to run for the New York senate seat that Hillary Clinton coveted. Hence the motive. Indeed, that may have been a factor. Pres. Clinton called in the Navy to hide the crime, his so-called Shalom Haver friendship with Rabin was clearly a sham, and his wife's political ambitions could have been promoted by murdering JFK Jr.
But, looking at the priorities, Shimon Peres and the "peace" process had to be protected first. The brave and wonderful publisher JFK Jr. was set to explode all the myths surrounding the murder of Rabin. Unless he exploded first.

The Continuing Red Mass of the U.S. Supreme Court

in honor of Bible burner tyrant Thomas Moore

From Wispers in the Loggia

The Red Report

Fronting the pews at this morning's Red Mass in DC's St Matthew's Cathedral: the nation's First Catholic -- Vice-President Joe Biden -- joined by six Supreme Court Justices, including the bench's Chief John Roberts and newest member Sonia Sotomayor, both likewise of the fold.

While the fulltext has yet to emerge, the wire's running a snip from the day's visiting preacher:
The specialized, formal knowledge of the law "frequently becomes semi-mechanical, even distancing," [Cardinal Daniel] DiNardo [of Galveston-Houston] told the congregation. "The law and lawyers are around because justice among human beings will always be an issue."

"Even sophisticated, knowledgeable human lawyers need reminding, need a divine fire ... both in their personal lives and in their profession itself."
Now in its 56th year, the annual liturgy to seek God's guidance for politicians, lawyers and judges was protested by anti-abortion activists deeming the event a "mockery" given the presence of politicos who, according to the group's leaders, "commit sacrilege by receiving the Body and Blood of Christ while they hold a knife to the throat of the unborn."

Concelebrating alongside the capital's Archbishop Donald Wuerl were archbishop of the Military Services Tim Broglio, Bishop Paul Loverde of Arlington and the District's three auxiliaries. As is customary (but not required) in the case of a non-cardinal celebrant, DiNardo presided in the scarlet choir dress of a prince of the church, donning a stole for his turn in the pulpit.

As ever, more to come as it comes in.

As promised, more still:
Speaking at the annual Mass the day before the opening of the Supreme Court term, DiNardo said that people represented by lawyers are "more than clients. ... In some cases the clients are voiceless for they lack influence; in others they are literally voiceless, not yet with tongues and even without names, and require our most careful attention and radical support."...

DiNardo did not elaborate on the rights of the unborn, focusing instead on how the complexity of the law can have a dehumanizing effect on those who practice it.

In the Capitol, "Red" Meets Blue

As American church-state interactions go, this weekend brings the genre's Super Bowl -- and given the new state of things in the nation's capital, smart money says this years'll be even more closely watched than usual.

Of course, the "Bowl" in question is Washington's Red Mass, held annually on the First Sunday of October, the eve of a new Supreme Court term. Begun in 1954 and planned by DC's John Carroll Society for Catholic lawyers, the liturgy in St Matthew's Cathedral -- its roots dating from the 14th century -- traditionally attracts a quorum of the Court's nine justices (six of them now Catholic) and, in the last administration, an occasional appearance by the President. ("43" is shown above at the 2005 rite, alongside the now-retired Cardinal Ted McCarrick and Chief Justice John Roberts, then at the outset of his first term.)

While the capital's archbishop invariably serves as celebrant, the Mass' preaching duties are customarily given to a high-profile visitor. And so, following in the footsteps of Sean O'Malley, Tim Dolan and John Foley, this year's pulpit honors fall to the Cardinal of the South, Galveston-Houston's Dan DiNardo, who'll assume leadership of the US bishops' pro-life efforts at next month's November Meeting in Baltimore.

Speaking of things pro-life (or not), the Court's standing precedent on abortion and its clash with Catholic teaching has led church-state separation advocates on the political left to criticize the Mass as a means of "lecturing" the justices, and the leader of the court's pro-choice bloc, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, no longer attends the liturgy after one Red Mass homily which she described as "outrageously anti-abortion."

All that said, the wild card remains whether this year's edition will see the presence of the Court's newest (and unprecedented sixth Catholic) member, Justice Sonia Sotomayor. A product of the archdiocesan schools of her native Bronx, the junior associate is the first Latino ever to take a seat on the nation's highest bench.

Regardless of who does or doesn't show, however, it's worth noting that, just like the Court itself, cameras of every sort are kept well outside the cathedral walls for the liturgy's duration.

This Weekend in Washington: The Reddest of 'Em All

The timing might get more attention than usual this year thanks to election season, but early fall's opening of the judicial term sets the traditional backdrop for the annual spate of Red Masses... which recent weeks have seen (or will see) take place in, among others, Atlanta, Providence, LA, Brownsville, Salt Lake City, San Diego, Manchester, Kansas City, Lubbock, Detroit, Harrisburg, Seattle, Toronto and -- back in its birthplace -- at Westminster Cathedral in London.

Begun in the 14th century as the church's moment to invoke the Holy Spirit's blessing and help on the judiciary, the celebration -- suspended in Britain at the time of the Reformation, but revived there in 1891 -- had its American introduction in New York in 1928. In the years since, however, its focus increasingly geared beyond judges to the entire community of lawyers and public officials, the most-prominent Stateside celebration of the "Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit" has come to be celebrated in the capital, where this year's liturgy awaits on Sunday morning.

First held at St Matthew's Cathedral in 1954, recent rounds of the Washington Red Mass have taken on a consistently higher profile, with the congregation led by the first Catholic chief justice in eight decades and a POTUS with close ties to the church often in attendance. Always timed for the day prior to the opening of a new Supreme Court term, last year's Mass lacked President Bush, but drew six justices (including the five who form the Court's first-ever Catholic majority).

Organized by the capital's John Carroll Society, the liturgy's become one of the tougher tickets of official Washington's rites of fall, and given the octane of officialdom present in its front pews, a security check of attendees now stands among its traditions (along with the requisite demand for the enforcement of Canon 915). Its choice of preacher always closely watched, this year the pulpit honors'll fall to none other than John Cardinal Foley, the grand master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre.

While the Red is the original and best known of the "profession Masses" held to bless and honor the members of a field, its spirit has spawned similar celebrations for other groups: the Blue Mass salutes law-enforcement and public safety personnel, medical professionals of all stripes are celebrated at the White Mass... and in a new twist on the custom, one DC parish recently held a "Gold Mass" for folks involved in the creative and performing arts.

Hail, Columbia... and Holy Communion

Sure, his pro-choice stance might've driven no shortage of hierarchs to correction during the campaign -- and still finds him barred from Communion in a handful of dioceses -- but even so, tomorrow's inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama will likewise make history for the nation's 70 million Catholics with the swearing-in of the first of the fold ever to take up the Vice-Presidency of these United States, the first to enter either of the executive's elected posts since a certain JFK blazed the trail.

To kick-off the week that, despite seven terms in the Senate, will see him moving into his first Washington home, Joe Biden went to Mass (and, yes, received the Eucharist) yesterday at the District's Jesuit parish -- a favorite worship-spot of the first Romish president:
Biden and his wife, Jill, sat in a pew reserved for him and his family toward the back of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, and listened as the Rev. Larry Madden, S.J., delivered a sermon about God as a constant anchor and the promise of hope and change for those who believe.

Although Madden did not mention Biden's name, the presence of the vice president-elect was obvious in other ways.

Secret Service agents were discreetly stationed throughout the church, including either side of the altar. Toward the end of the 11:30 a.m. Mass, as one of the lectors urged those in attendance to welcome new members and visitors, some in the congregation laughed and then applauded, looking toward Biden. He eventually stood and acknowledged the response that included a standing ovation.

Among those at the service was Biden's former colleague, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., a regular at Holy Trinity....

Kennedy worshipped at Holy Trinity during his time in Washington, and a plaque on the fence at the front of the church describes the 35th president. On the snowy morning of Jan. 20, 1961, Kennedy attended Mass there before his swearing-in.

During Sunday's service, the congregation was asked to pray for "wisdom and integrity" to guide the new president and his administration, a recognition of Tuesday's inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama and Biden.
For the record, the Bidens have quietly been "church-shopping" around the capital over recent weeks, attending Sunday Mass at various DC parishes in advance of their move to One Observatory Circle.

Hoping to spend as much time as possible at their Delaware home, however, the Second Couple are expected to remain Sunday regulars at their parish in Wilmington, St Joseph's on the Brandywine, where the incoming VP usually attends the 9am Mass... and always sits near the back.

* * *
Given the confluence of the inauguration and Thursday's March for Life, much more to come on both as things progress. In the meantime, though, the most fitting starter for these days would yet again seem to be a house favorite: the "Prayer for the Nation and the Civil Authorities" written and first delivered in 1791 by John Carroll of Baltimore, a cousin of a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the nation's first bishop...
We pray, Thee O Almighty and Eternal God! Who through Jesus Christ hast revealed Thy glory to all nations, to preserve the works of Thy mercy, that Thy Church, being spread through the whole world, may continue with unchanging faith in the confession of Thy Name.

We pray Thee, who alone art good and holy, to endow with heavenly knowledge, sincere zeal, and sanctity of life, our chief bishop, Pope Benedict, the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the government of his Church; our own Bishop, N., all other bishops, prelates, and pastors of the Church; and especially those who are appointed to exercise amongst us the functions of the holy ministry, and conduct Thy people into the ways of salvation.

We pray Thee O God of might, wisdom, and justice! Through whom authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment decreed, assist with Thy Holy Spirit of counsel and fortitude the President of these United States, that his administration may be conducted in righteousness, and be eminently useful to Thy people over whom he presides; by encouraging due respect for virtue and religion; by a faithful execution of the laws in justice and mercy; and by restraining vice and immorality. Let the light of Thy divine wisdom direct the deliberations of Congress, and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed for our rule and government, so that they may tend to the preservation of peace, the promotion of national happiness, the increase of industry, sobriety, and useful knowledge; and may perpetuate to us the blessing of equal liberty.

We pray for his excellency, the governor of this state, for the members of the assembly, for all judges, magistrates, and other officers who are appointed to guard our political welfare, that they may be enabled, by Thy powerful protection, to discharge the duties of their respective stations with honesty and ability.

We recommend likewise, to Thy unbounded mercy, all our brethren and fellow citizens throughout the United States, that they may be blessed in the knowledge and sanctified in the observance of Thy most holy law; that they may be preserved in union, and in that peace which the world cannot give; and after enjoying the blessings of this life, be admitted to those which are eternal.

Finally, we pray to Thee, O Lord of mercy, to remember the souls of Thy servants departed who are gone before us with the sign of faith and repose in the sleep of peace; the souls of our parents, relatives, and friends; of those who, when living, were members of this congregation, and particularly of such as are lately deceased; of all benefactors who, by their donations or legacies to this Church, witnessed their zeal for the decency of divine worship and proved their claim to our grateful and charitable remembrance.

To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and everlasting peace, through the same Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.
