QUESTION: Who are the “International Banksters” – and who are the greatest accumulators of wealth in the world?

ANSWER: “International Banksters” is an expression that I use to describe the Jesuit-controlled financial cabal that controls the leaders and governments of many of the nations on planet Earth – especially here in the West. Some people allege that “the Jews” run international banking; however, my research has shown me that Jesuit-controlled Papal Rome (i.e., the Jesuit-controlled Roman Catholic Church-State) is by far the number one financial entity in the world! Jesuit-controlled Papal Rome rules the financial world through the Vatican’s banking and financial interests (e.g., in Rome, throughout Europe, and in the USA), through the wealthy Jesuit-controlled Knights of Malta Order, and through many other Jesuit-controlled financial subgroups.

As Dr. Stanley Monteith, on page 58 of his book “Brotherhood of Darkness” (Hearthstone Publishing, 2000), tells us: “Some sincere people believe that the Jews, or the Jewish bankers, are behind the world conspiracy. There are many clues that lead people to that conclusion, but I can assure you that the evidence has been planted to divert attention away from the truth.”

Indeed, some folks like to point to the Rothschild banking dynasty as proof that “the Jews” run international banking; however, one of the titles of the Rothschilds, according to author F. Tupper Saussy, is “Guardians of the Vatican Treasury”. Some folks would argue that the Rothschilds should be labeled as “Court Jews” of Jesuit-controlled Papal Rome, i.e., “Papal Court Jews”.

F. Tupper Saussy, on page 160 of his book “Rulers of Evil: Useful Knowledge about Governing Bodies” (First HarperCollins Edition, 2001), tells us: “Aware that the Rothschilds are an important Jewish family, I looked them up in [Ed.: the] Encyclopedia Judaica and discovered that they bear the title ‘Guardians of the Vatican Treasury’… The appointment of Rothschild gave the Black Papacy [Ed.: i.e., the hierarchical leadership of the Jesuit Order] 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?”

Gary Allen, on page 40 of his book “None Dare Call It Conspiracy” (1971; Third printing of Concord Press, Rossmoor, CA – April, 1972 edition), tells us: “Actually, nobody has a right to be more angry at the Rothschild clique than their fellow Jews. The Warburgs, part of the Rothschild empire, helped finance Adolph Hitler. There were few if any Rothschilds or Warburgs in the Nazi prison camps! They sat out the war in luxurious hotels in Paris or emigrated to the United States or England. As a group, Jews have suffered most at the hands of these power seekers. A Rothschild has much more in common with a Rockefeller than he does with a [Ed.: Jewish] tailor from Budapest or the Bronx.”

Some folks believe that the Knights Templar Order was the first international banking cartel. When the Knights Templar Order was suppressed in the early 14th century by King Philip IV of France, the Hospitallers – later known as the Knights of Malta (a Roman Catholic religious-military order controlled today by the Jesuit Order) – “absorbed” a sizable portion of the great wealth (especially the lands and estates) of the Knights Templar. (The Knights Templar order was officially dissolved by Pope Clement V in 1312 at the Council of Venice – and Templar property was confiscated.) Many of the world’s richest bankers have in the past been – and most likely will continue in the future to be – Jesuit-controlled Knights of Malta.

The Jesuit-controlled international banksters have fomented and orchestrated – and helped to finance – many of the revolutions and wars of the last three to four centuries (including two world wars) – and have profited nicely from the maiming and murder of millions of people!

Please carefully consider the following quotations:

“Like Rome itself, Vatican wealth was not built in a day…
The [Ed.: Roman] Catholic faith’s claim to uniqueness is valid. It is the only religious organization in the world which has as its headquarters an independent state, Vatican City, which is a law unto itself…
The modern wealth of the Vatican is based on the generosity of [Ed.: Italian Roman Catholic Fascist dictator] Benito Mussolini [Ed.: whom powerful Roman Catholics, such as Jesuit Don Luigi Sturzo, had put into power in Italy]. The Lateran Treaty, which his government concluded with the Vatican in 1929, gave the Roman Catholic Church a variety of guarantees and measures of protection.
The Holy See [Ed.: i.e., the center of authority of the Bishop of Rome – i.e., the pope’s “seat”] obtained recognition of itself as a Sovereign State. It was exempted from paying taxes both for its properties and its citizens, exempted from paying duty on foreign goods; it had diplomatic immunity and accompanying privileges for its own diplomats and those accredited to it by foreign powers. Mussolini guaranteed the introduction of [Ed.: Roman] Catholic religious teaching in all State High Schools and the entire institution of marriage was placed under Canon Law, which ruled out divorce. The benefits for the Vatican were many, not least the fiscal ones.
[Ed.: Under Article One of the Lateran Treaty of 1929 Italy paid] the Holy See…the sum of 750 million lire…[Ed.: and handed over] Consolidated 5 per cent State Bonds to the bearer for the nominal value of one billion lire.
At the 1929 rate of exchange this package represented 81 million dollars. A 1984 equivalent figure is approximately 500 million dollars. ‘Vatican incorporated’ was in business. It never looked back.” – David A. Yallop (“In God’s Name: An Investigation into the Murder of Pope John Paul I”; Carroll & Graf Publishers, New York; 1st edition 2007; Pages 82, 83)

“The CIA profited as well, discovering through Mooney’s [Ed.: i.e., Chicago Mob boss Sam “Mooney” Giancana’s] bribe-friendly contacts new avenues for diverting their own ‘dirty money’, funds garnered from illicit CIA activities.
To courier the millions of dollars that would soon pour across U.S.-Mexican borders, Mooney [Ed.: i.e., Chicago Mob boss Sam “Mooney” Giancana, who at one time had had a private audience in Rome with Pope Paul VI] called upon the Roman Catholic Church.
In 1958, Cardinal Stritch left Chicago to accept a position in the Vatican. Stritch’s successor in Chicago, Cardinal Cody, proved in Mooney’s [Ed.: i.e., Chicago Mob boss Sam “Mooney” Giancana’s] estimation to be a stellar replacement. Mooney said [Ed.: Cardinal] Cody was a corrupt man who enjoyed the trappings of wealth and, therefore, welcomed a close relationship with him.
Father Cash, the Chicago [Ed.: Roman Catholic] priest Mooney utilized as a courier, had traveled under Mooney’s orders across the nation and to Europe for close to two decades. With Mooney’s move into the southern hemisphere, [Ed.: “Father”] Cash was told to add Latin America to his itinerary.
During Mooney’s [Ed.: i.e., Chicago Mob boss Sam “Mooney” Giancana’s] tenure outside the United States, Chuck [Ed.: Giancana] heard talk among Outfit [Ed.: i.e., Chicago’s organized crime syndicate] men that millions of dollars flowed to Continental Illinois, a bank then heavily invested in Finibank, a Swiss bank owned in part by the Vatican and controlled by financier Michele Sindona [Ed.: who was a Sicilian Mob financial wizard and a Vatican consultant], Mooney’s Gambino [Ed.: i.e., New York Mob boss Carlo Gambino] connection. Some was couriered by Mooney’s trusted lieutenants to Washington, D.C., where it was converted to bonds and then forwarded to Finibank or another Sindona-controlled European shell, generally in Rome, London, or Athens. But still more was carried out of Chicago to Mexico, under the safety of the priest’s robe, to be placed in banks scattered throughout South and Central America, but most often in Panama. Often these funds were then diverted to Milan [Ed.: Italy] and on to the Vatican Bank in Rome, where they were easily transferred to Finibank in Switzerland – and straight into the hands of Michele Sindona and an up-and-coming Chicago [Ed.: Roman Catholic] priest residing in the Vatican, Paul Marcinkus. The CIA, eager to improve its own financial position, was said to have followed suit, dealing frequently and closely with [Ed.: Paul] Marcinkus [Ed.: who became the head of the Vatican Bank] and [Ed.: Vatican consultant Michele] Sindona.” – Sam and Chuck Giancana (“Double Cross”; Warner Books, 1992; Pages 470 and 471)

“In October 2000 police in Palermo, Sicily, arrested twenty-one members if a criminal group, including some with direct links to the Mafia. The gang had succeeded in cloning a replica of the computer system used at a branch of Banco de Sicilia. Preparations to divert $500 million were well advanced and included telephonic negotiations with members of staff at the Vatican Bank where the money would have been transferred onward to banks in Portugal and Belgium.
Doubtless the Mafia in Sicily knew that the Vatican Bank regularly features in official global top ten money laundries. [Ed.: “Money laundries” are places, e.g., banks, where money is exchanged or invested in such a manner as to conceal how the money had been improperly or illegally obtained.] A 2001 report placed the Vatican at number eight, and estimated the annual amount laundered through the Vatican Bank at $50 billion. This almost certainly explains the absence of the Holy See among the list of members of the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering and its absence among the list of international bodies and organizations that have observer status with the Task Force.” – David Yallop (“The Power and the Glory: Inside the Dark Heart of John Paul II’s Vatican”; Carroll & Graf Publishers, New York; 1st edition, 2007; Page 440)

As to the “greatest accumulators of wealth in the world”, please consider the following quotations:

“Most [Ed.: i.e., a quite sizable chunk] of [Ed.: Papal] Rome’s wealth has been acquired through the sale of salvation. Untold billions of dollars have been paid to her by those who thought they were purchasing heaven on the installment plan for themselves or loved ones. The practice continues to this day… [Ed.: “Purgatory” is a fabricated, fictional place, and it is an immense money-making Roman Catholic doctrine that is found nowhere in either the Old Testament or the New Testament!]
…There are the further [Ed.: Roman Catholic Church] abominations of corrupt banking practices, laundering of drug money, trading in counterfeit securities, and dealings with the Mafia (fully documented in police and court records), which the Vatican and her representatives around the world have long employed. Nino Lo Bello, former ‘Business Week’ correspondent in Rome and Rome bureau chief for ‘New York Journal of Commerce’, writes that the Vatican is so closely allied with the Mafia in Italy that ‘many people…believe that Sicily…is nothing more than a Vatican holding’.
The Roman Catholic Church is by far the WEALTHIEST institution on earth.” – Dave Hunt (“A Woman Rides the Beast”; Harvest House Publishers, Eugene, Oregon; 1994; Pages 75, 76) (To order a copy of this 544-page paperback book via credit card, please call The Berean Beacon at 1-800-937-6638.)

The following seven quotations have all been taken from Avro Manhattan’s book “The Vatican Billions” (Chick Publications; 1983). (Please remember that the figures given below are over two decades old!)

“The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, [Ed.: and] with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions in shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines [Ed.: i.e., IBM], T.W.A., etc. At a conservative estimate, these amount to more than 500 million dollars in the USA alone.” – Avro Manhattan (“The Vatican Billions”; Chick Publications; 1983)

“In a statement published in connection with a bond prospectus, the Boston archdiocese listed its assets at Six Hundred and Thirty-five Million dollars ($635,891,004), which is 9.9 times its liabilities. This leaves a net worth of Five Hundred and Seventy-one Million dollars ($571,704,953). It is not difficult to discover the truly astonishing wealth of the [Ed.: Roman Catholic] Church, once we add the riches of the twenty-eight archdioceses and 122 dioceses of the USA, some of which are even wealthier than that of Boston.” – Avro Manhattan (“The Vatican Billions”; Chick Publications; 1983)

“Some idea of the real estate and other forms of wealth controlled by the [Ed.: Roman] Catholic Church may be gathered by the remark of a member of the New York Catholic Conference, namely ‘that his church probably ranks second only to the United States government in total annual purchase.’ Another statement, made by a nationally syndicated Catholic priest, perhaps is even more telling. ‘The Catholic Church’, he said, ‘must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T. &T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States government.’” – Avro Manhattan (“The Vatican Billions”; Chick Publications; 1983)

“The [Ed.: Roman] Catholic Church, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. …The Wall Street Journal said that the Vatican’s financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.” – Avro Manhattan (“The Vatican Billions”; Chick Publications; 1983)

“The Vatican’s treasure of SOLID GOLD has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. …But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the [Ed.: Roman] Catholic Church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.” – Avro Manhattan (“The Vatican Billions”; Chick Publications; 1983)

“The [Ed.: Roman] Catholic Church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe.” – Avro Manhattan (“The Vatican Billions”; Chick Publications; 1983)

“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.” – Avro Manhattan (“The Vatican Billions”; Chick Publications, 1983; Page 184)
