• Sun Tzu (Author of The Art of War)

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out bait to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him… Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them [Ed.: divide and conquer]... [Ed.: the general’s] victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor credit for courage... Hence that general is skillful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skillful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack. O divine art of subtlety and secrecy! Through you we learn to be invisible, through you inaudible; and hence we can hold the enemy’s fate in our hands.”

• Ignatius de Loyola (1491-1556, founder of the Society of Jesus and First Superior General)

“Nor will it contribute a little to our advantage, if, with caution and secrecy, we foment and heighten the animosities that arise among princes and great men, even to such a degree that they may weaken each other. But if there appear any likelihood of reconciliation, then as soon as possible let us endeavor to be the mediators, lest others prevent us."

“Finally, — Let all with such artfulness gain the ascendant over princes, noblemen, and the magistrates of every place, that they may be ready at our beck, even to sacrifice their nearest relations and most intimate friends, when we say it is for our interest and advantage.”

• Paolo Sarpi (1552-1623, a Venetian patriot, scholar, scientist and church reformer)

“They are a public plague, and the plague of the world… From the Jesuit colleges [Ed.: like the Jesuit Georgetown and Fordham Universities] there never is sent a pupil obedient to his father, devoted to his country, loyal to his prince.”

• Antonio Escobar y Mendoza, (1589-1669, Jesuit priest)

“It is lawful… to make use of the science acquired through the assistance of the devil, provided the preservation and use of that knowledge do not depend upon the devil, for the knowledge is good in itself, and the sin by which it was acquired has gone by.”

• John Adams (1735-1826, Second President of the United States of America). Adam’s, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson, conveyed his thoughts on the restoration of the Order. He had written 4 volumes on the history of the Jesuits under a pseudonym.

“My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, is very particular and very horrible. Their restoration is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, perfidy, despotism, death… I do not like the appearance of the Jesuits. If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of Loyola’s.”

“Shall we not have regular swarms of them here, in as many disguises as only a king of the gypsies can assume, dressed as painters, publishers, writers and schoolmasters? If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell it is this Society of Loyola’s… we are compelled by our system… to offer them asylum.”

• Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821; Emperor of the French)

“The Jesuits are a military organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is: POWER. Power in its most despotic exercise. Absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms: and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses… The general of the Jesuits insists on being master, sovereign, over the sovereign. Wherever the Jesuits are admitted they will be masters, cost what it may. Their society is by nature dictatorial, and therefore it is the irreconcilable enemy of all constituted authority. Every act, every crime, however atrocious, is a meritorious work, if committed for the interest of the Society of the Jesuits, or by the order of the general.”

• Adam Weishaupt (1748-1830, Jesuit German philosopher and founder of the Order of Illuminati in Bavaria)

“The degree of power to which the representatives of the Society of Jesus had been able to attain in Bavaria was all but absolute. Members of the order were the confessors and preceptors of the electors; hence they had a direct influence upon the policies of government. The censorship of religion had fallen into their eager hands, to the extent that some of the parishes even were compelled to recognize their authority and power. To exterminate all Protestant influence and to render the Catholic establishment complete, they had taken possession of the instruments of public education. It was by Jesuits that the majority of the Bavarian colleges were founded, and by them they were controlled. By them also the secondary schools of the country were conducted.”

• John Robison (1739-1805, FRSE LLD, Scottish physicist, mathematician, professor of natural philosophy)

“Weishaupt had long been scheming the establishment of an Association or Order, which in time, should govern the world… he hinted to several ex-Jesuits [Ed.: all Jesuits were “ex-Jesuits due to suppression of 1773] the probability of their recovering, under a new name [Ed.: the Illuminati in this case], the influence which they formerly possessed (Ed.: i.e., prior to their suppression).”

• Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834; French statesman and general)

“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated MOST of the wars of Europe.”

• Jacobe Leon (Ex-Jesuit)

“Every day the general receives a number of reports, which severally check each other. There are in the central house, at Rome, huge registers, wherein are inscribed the names of all the Jesuits and of all the important persons, friends, or enemies, with whom they have any connection. In those registers are recorded… facts relating to the lives of each individual. It is the most gigantic bibliographical collection that has ever been formed. The conduct of a light woman, the hidden failings of a statesman, are recounted in these books with cold impartiality… When it is required to act in any way upon an individual, they open the book and become immediately acquainted with his life, his character, his qualities, his defects, his projects, his family, his friends, his most secret acquaintances.
“The first thing that struck me was some great books in the form of registers, with alphabetical edges… I found that they contained numerous observations relative to the character of distinguished individuals, arranged by towns or families. Each page was evidently written by several different hands.”

• Samuel Morse (1791-1872; American inventor of the telegraph)

“And do Americans need to be told what Jesuits are?… they are a secret society, a sort of Masonic order, with superadded features of revolting odiousness, and a thousand times more dangerous. They are not merely priests, or of one religious creed; they are merchants, and lawyers, and editors, and men of any profession, having no outward badge, (in this country) by which to be recognized; they are about in all your society.
“They can assume any character, that of angels of light, or ministers of darkness to accomplish their one great end, the service upon which they are sent, whatever that service may be. They are all educated men, prepared and sworn to start at any moment, and in any direction, and for any service, commanded by the general of their order, bound to no family, community, or country, by the ordinary ties which bind men; and sold for life to the cause of the Roman Pontiff.”

“And who are these agents? They are for the most part, Jesuits, an ecclesiastical order proverbial through the world for cunning, duplicity, and total want of moral principle; an order so skilled in all the arts of deception that even in Catholic countries, in Italy itself, it became intolerable, and the people required its suppression.”

• Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States)

“This war [American Civil War, 1860-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to Popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons."

“The Protestants of both the North and South would surely unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits, if they could learn how the priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores, under the pretext of preaching their religion… are nothing else but the emissaries of the Pope, of Napoleon III, and the other despots of Europe, to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, in Mexico, in Spain, and wherever there are any people who want to be free.”

“‘I am so glad to meet you again,’ he [Ed.: Lincoln] said: ‘you see that your friends, the Jesuits have not yet killed me. But they would have surely done it when I passed through their most devoted city, Baltimore, had I not defeated their plans, by passing incognito a few hours before they expected me… ’ ‘New projects of assassination are detected almost every day, accompanied with such savage circumstances, that they bring to my memory the massacre of St. Bartholomew and the Gunpowder Plot. We feel, at their investigation, that they come from the same masters in the art of murder, the Jesuits…’ ‘So many plots have already been made against my life, that it is a real miracle that they have all failed, when we consider that the great majority of them were in the hands of skilful Roman Catholic murderers, evidently trained by the Jesuits.’”

• James Aitken Wylie (1808-1890, Scottish historian)

“From his chamber in Rome, the eye of the General surveys the world… to its farthest bounds; there is nothing done in it which he does not see; there is nothing spoken in it which he does not hear… to the General of the Jesuits the world lies ‘naked and open.’ He sees by a thousand eyes, he hears by a thousand ears; and when he has a behest to execute, he can select the fittest agent from an innumerable host, all of whom are ready to do his bidding.”

“Every year, a list of the houses and members of the society, with the name, talents, virtues, and failings of each, is laid before the General. In addition to the annual report, every one of the thirty-seven provincials must send him a report monthly of the state of his province, he must inform him minutely of its political and ecclesiastical condition. Every superior of a college must report once every three months. The heads of houses of residence, and houses of novitiates, must do the same, In short, from every quarter of his vast dominions come a monthly and tri-monthly report. If the matter reported on has reference to persons outside the society, the Constitutions direct that the provincials and superiors shall write to the General in cipher.”

• James Patron (1822-1891, American historian)

“…If you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus [Ed.: i.e., the Jesuit Superior General] are one and the same person.”

• Ellen G. White (1827-1915, Prolific author, American Christian pioneer, and co-founder of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church)

“Jesuitism inspired its followers with fanaticism… There was no crime too great for them to commit, no deception too base for them to practice, no disguise too difficult for them to assume… It was a fundamental principle of the order that the end justifies the means. By this code, lying, theft, perjury, assassination, were not only pardonable but commendable, when they served the interests of the church. Under various disguises the Jesuits worked their way into offices of state, climbing up to be the counselors of kings, and shaping the policy of nations.”

• Adolf Hitler (1889-1945, German dictator and the leader of the Nazi Party)

“‘I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits,’ said Hitler… ‘Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party… I am going to let you in on a secret… In my ‘Burgs’ of the Order we will raise up a youth which will make the world tremble… Hitler then stopped, saying that he couldn’t say any more…”

“I can see Himmler as our Ignatius of Loyola.”

• Walther Friedrich Schellenberg (1910-1952, German SS-Brigadeführer who rose through the ranks of the SS to become the head of foreign intelligence)

“The SS had been organized by Himmler according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. The rules of service and spiritual exercises prescribed by Ignatius de Loyola constituted a model which Himmler strove carefully to copy. Absolute obedience was the supreme rule; every order had to be executed without comment.”

• Leo Herbert Lehmann (1895-1950, Ex-priest, historian and author)

“Although first published in Russia in 1903, the Protocols of Zion had their origin in France and date from the Dreyfus Affair, of which the Jesuits were the chief instigators… These Protocols of supposedly Jewish leaders are not the first documents of their kind fabricated by the Jesuits. For over a hundred years before these Protocols appeared, the Jesuits had continued to make use of a similar fraud called The Secrets of the Elders of Bourg-Fontaine against Jansenism—an anti-Jesuit French Catholic movement among the secular clergy."

• Edmond Paris (1894-1970, Author of “The Secret History of the Jesuits”)
"The public is practically unaware of the overwhelming responsibility carried by the Vatican and its Jesuits in the starting of the two world wars – a situation which may be explained in part by the gigantic finances at the disposition of the Vatican and its Jesuits, giving them power in so many spheres, especially since the last conflict."

“The Fuhrer had come to power, thanks to the votes of the Catholic Zentrum [Ed.: Center Party overseen by Jesuit Ludwig Kaas], only five years before [Ed.: 1933], but most of the objectives cynically revealed in Mein Kampf were already realized; this book… was written by the Jesuit [Ed.: controlled] Father [Ed.: Bernhardt] Stempfle and signed by Hitler. For… it was the Society of Jesus which perfected the famous Pan-German programme as laid out in this book, and the Fuhrer endorsed it.”

• Bertrand Russell (1872-1970, Fabian Socialist, British polymath, philosopher, historian, writer)

“The Jesuits provided one sort of education for the boys who were to become men of the world [Ed.: lay people], and another for those who would become members of their Society of Jesus… Ordinary men and women will be expected to be docile, industrious, punctual, thoughtless, and contented.”

• Avro Manhattan (1914-1990, Writer and philosopher)

“The Jesuits are one of the largest stockholders in the American steel company, Republic and National. They are also among the most important owners of the four greatest aircraft manufacturing companies in the U.S., Boeing, Lockheed, Douglas and Curtis-Wright.”

• Anton LaVey (1930-1997, Founder of the Church of Satan)

“The Oakland Tribune article [Ed.: from March 7, 1970] reported that LaVey had become ‘a favorite speaker at the University of San Francisco.’ When asked about his engagements at that university, LaVey proudly replied, ‘the Jesuits are my greatest audience.’ In case the reader was not already aware, the University of San Francisco is a renowned Jesuit institution of higher learning.”

• G. Gordon Liddy (1930-, former FBI agent, involved in Watergate scandal)

“Fordham [Ed.: University]… was still under the absolute control of the Jesuits, and many of the professors were either Jesuit priests (Fathers) or scholastics (trainees, addressed as “Mister”). As much as I had admired the German Benedictines, I admired the Jesuits more… the Society of Jesus was something special; the shock troops of the Catholic Church. So effective an organization was it that… Heinrich Himmler [Ed.: himself a Catholic] used it as the model for his own corps of Ubermenschen (supermen), the Schutzstaffel (SS), whose hand-picked members swore a special oath of loyalty to the Fuhrer as the highest rank of Jesuits did to the Pope… These men [Jesuits at the Fordham University club] ran the world, and it was obvious that they enjoyed it.”

• Fredrick Tupper Saussy, III (1936-2007, American composer, musician, author and artist)

“…The Roman Inquisition…had been administered since 1542 by the Jesuits.”

“The Treaty of Paris of 1763 designated King George III ‘Arch-Treasurer and Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire.’ And according to the Encyclopedia Judaica [sic] the Rothschilds bear the title ‘Guardians of the Vatican Treasury.’ The Vatican Treasury, of course, holds the imperial wealth of Rome. Imperial wealth grows in proportion to its victories in war — as the Jesuit empowerment Regimini militantis ecclesiae implies, the Church-at-War is more necessary than the Church-at-Peace. According to H. Russell Robinson’s illustrated Armour of Imperial Rome, Caesarean soldiers protect themselves in battle with shields painted red. Since the soldiery is the State’s most valuable resource (the Council of Trent admitted this in preferring the Jesuits to all other religious orders), it is easy to understand why the red shield was identified with the very life of the Church. Hence, the appropriateness of the name Rothschild, German for ‘red shield.’ The appointment of Rothschild gave the black papacy absolute financial privacy and secrecy. Who would ever search a family of orthodox Jews for the key to the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church? I believe this appointment explains why the House of Rothschild is famous for helping nations go to war. It is fascinating that, as Meyer Rothschild’s sons grew into the family business, the firm took on the title Meyer Amschel Rothschild and Söhne, which gives us the notariqon MARS. Isn’t Mars the Roman God of War, whose heavenly manifestation is ‘the red planet’? There is powerful cabalah here, and there’s hardly an acre of inhabitable earth that hasn’t been affected by it in some way.”

“The Masonic Lodge is a similar organization to the Jesuits, an absolute totalitarian hierarchy and everyone in the various degrees of Masonry obeys a higher power and that Masonic power culminates in what is known as the Unknown Superior. Nobody knows his name all they know is that they get orders from him. The orders are delivered with some sort of code so everybody knows it came from the Unknown Superior. I maintain the Unknown Superior during the American Revolution was none other than [Superior General] Lorenzo Ricci. So the Masonic Lodge was just a wonderful way for Catholics militants to control the operations of Protestants. Because Catholics were forbidden to join Masonic Orders and Protestants knew that. They comprehended that to become a Freemason was to belong to a brotherhood that discriminates against Catholics. Catholics were definitely a despised minority in America. Mainly because Protestants knew that if a Catholic would hold political office, he would have to be obedient to a foreign sovereign, who is the pope. This is true, this is found in Catholic Ecclesiastical Law, that if you're a member of the Catholic Church and hold political power, you are to use it to advance the rights, honors, and dignities of the Papacy.”

• William Cooper (1943-2001, US Naval Intelligence Briefing Team Member, held a top secret, Q, SI, security clearance, author of “Behold a Pale Horse”)

"The Jesuits went on to foment rebellion everywhere that they went and the pope gave them incredible power and made Ignatius Loyola immune to any prosecution from any source. And it was they who trained Adam Weishaupt, and it was Adam Weishaupt who formed the branch of what we all know as the Illumined Ones, known as the Illuminati in Bavaria. For he sent out agents to infiltrate the lodges of the secret societies throughout Europe.”

“Now, the establishment version goes something like this: Weishaupt, upon the suppression of the Order, refused a pension which he was offered after he had been dismissed from his professorial chair. He attributed his downfall to the machinations of the Jesuits, whom be hated and who had opposed him that as he was not of their number… And nothing could be farther from the truth, for Adam Weishaupt was himself a Jesuit priest, holding a professorial chair at a Jesuit university… Another incident that you will not hear in establishment accounts is the story of the messenger writing from one Bavarian Illuminati lodge to another, who was literally struck by lightning – divine intervention, if you will. Struck dead from his horse, in his pouch carrying the papers of a secret plan to take over individual nations, and ultimately the world, were put into the hands of the Bavarian government and many of the portions of these papers are almost word for word what later became known as the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion.”

“The [Ed.: Jesuit controlled] Knights of Malta is a world organization with its threads weaving through business, banking, politics, the CIA [Ed.: i.e. William Casey, Allen Dulles, James Jesus Angleton, and almost all past Directors], other intelligence organizations [Prince Anton Turkul of the Russian GRU and General Reinhard Gehlen of the German BND during WWII], [Ed.: Masonic] P2, religion, education, law, military, think tanks, foundations, the United States Information Agency, the United Nations, and numerous other organizations… the world head of the Knights of Malta is elected for a life term, with the approval of the Pope. The Knights of Malta have their own Constitution and are sworn to work toward the establishment of a New World Order with the Pope at its head. The Knights of Malta members are also powerful members of the CFR and the Trilateral Commission… The Knights of Malta ALL have diplomatic immunity. They can ship goods across borders without paying duty or undergoing customs check. Does that ring any bells? In any case, that is power.”

• E. Howard Hunt (1918-2007, CIA-Officer)

“We’ve always said, you know, in an admiring way, that the Jesuits form the greatest intelligence service in the world, always have.”

• Dave Hunt (1926-2013, Baptist historian and author of “A Woman Rides the Beast”)

“The Vatican’s constituency of 980 million followers is at least three times the number of citizens in any Western democracy and is exceeded only by the population of China. Even more important, these 980 million people are scattered throughout the world, many of them holding high political, military, and commercial positions for non-catholic countries. Moreover, the pope has thousands of secret agents worldwide. They include Jesuits, the Knights of Columbus, Knights of Malta, Opus Dei, and others. The Vatican's Intelligence Service and its field resources are second to none…"

• Michael Bunker (American writer, historian, and theologian)

“There are countless volumes of conspiracy literature exposing the Freemasons, but few expose the fact that Albert Pike’s spiritual advisor and second in command was an initiated Italian Roman Catholic Jesuit priest named Guisseppi Mazzini. It seems that wherever we lift up the rock of heresy, we find the serpents of Jesuitism.”

• P.D. Stuart (American researcher and author of “Codeword Barbelon”)

“… when Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Order of Loyola (a.k.a. the Jesuits) in 1773, Lorenzo Ricci, the Jesuit General, shrewdly reconstituted the Order by using Adam Weishaupt to form the Illuminati. Weishaupt was merely the ‘nominal founder, and… played a subordinate, though conspicuous, role in the organization of this sect.’ In short, Weishaupt entered into an intrigue with the Jesuits; and within thirteen short years his new Jesuit freemasonry (which he termed Illuminati) had spread throughout all of Europe like the plague.”

“… the machinery of the confessional is an organized system of Espionage and blackmail and was first made a requirement by the Jesuits in the Sixteenth century and maintained at their insistence ever since. All ‘faithful’ Catholics are obliged to confess to a priest. These confessions are, if they are deemed to be of significance, are sent to Rome: so that there is not a thought or a purpose of the penitent that is not known at headquarters. It is thus that the Jesuit General is vested with omniscience and knows not only all that is done or spoken by the penitent, but also much that is done by others in the penitent's home and by those with whom the penitent deals; and thereby virtually all that is done throughout his vast ‘empire,’ across the globe.”

• Bill Hughes (Seventh-day Adventist pastor, researcher and author of “The Enemy Unmasked” and “The Secret Terrorists”)

“Woodrow Wilson, under the direction of Jesuit agent, Edward Mandel House, failed to convince the American people and the United States Senate that they should join the League of Nations, the Jesuits realized that they had to make sure this refusal never happened again… In order to accomplish this, the Jesuits knew that they must have greater control of the mass media outlets, more Congressmen in their pockets, more businesses to be dominated, and the office of the President had to be controlled. After these things had been accomplished, the Jesuits knew that they would then have no trouble convincing a deluded American public to give up their national sovereignty to the United Nations. In order to accomplish these things, the Jesuits created another front behind which to hide their subversion. This front was called the Council on Foreign Relations. In England they created a similar sister organization called the Royal Institute of International Affairs. The Jesuit run CFR has accomplished two of its goals by coercing America into the United Nations and gaining control of the mass media. Another goal of the CFR was to gain control over many U.S. corporations that would help in furthering ongoing and further projects. The following are just a few of the corporations that are controlled by the CFR and he Jesuits: Ford Motor Company, Boeing Corp., Pepsi-Cola, Heinz Co., Lockheed-Martin, Time-Warner, and Chevron. This very abbreviated list of companies makes it clear that powerful forces are being applied through the CFR to destroy America and its Constitution. Monies from these corporations and the Federal Reserve have been used to finance the Bolshevik Revolution, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the restoration of Germany, the taking over of Cuba by Fidel Castro, and the taking over of China by Mao Tse Tung, as well as the destruction of the government of Nicaragua.”

“Adam Weishaupt and the Rothschild family created the Illuminati. Then both Weishaupt and the Rothschilds united their efforts to foment the French Revolution and the roots of Communism. The Jesuits next used Karl Marx to write the Communist Manifesto, which codified the Illuminati’s plans. The teachings of Marx were then passed to Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky. The financiers of all these men were the Rothschilds or Rothschild agents such as Paul Warburg, the first chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, Jacob Schiff and Armand Hammer. Each one of these men, being Jesuits, were Jews and operated under a Jewish front. Is it any wonder that the Jews are usually blamed for all the conspiracies? Other Jesuits who operate under a Jewish front include the chairman of the Federal Reserve bank, Alan Greenspan, Arlen Specter, and Henry Kissinger.”

• Eric Phelps (American researcher and author of “Vatican Assassins”)

“...the Jesuit Provincial at Stonyhurst controls the Archbishop of Westminster who in turn rules the country through the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), the British parent of the American Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) likewise controlled by the Archbishop of New York. The Empires of both Britain and America are in the hands of Satan’s Society of Jesus!”

“In the Twentieth Century the Jesuits have conducted their Inquisition under the names of Nazism, Fascism, Communism and now Islamic Terrorism with their Inquisitors, Adolf Hitler, Francisco Franco, Josef Stalin and now Osama bin Laden. Today the Black Pope orders his Holy Office of the Inquisition, renamed in 1965, ‘The Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,’ through his International Intelligence Community headed by Papal Knights [Ed.: such as the Knights of Malta, Columbus, etc.], including Skull and Bonesman George W. Bush.”
