The Reformation is usually dated to 31 October 1517 in Wittenberg, Saxony, when Martin Luther sent his Ninety-Five Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences to the Archbishop of Mainz. The theses debated and criticized the Church and the papacy, but concentrated upon the selling of indulgences and doctrinal policies about purgatory, particular judgment, and the authority of the pope. He would later in the period 1517–1521 write works on devotion to Virgin Mary, the intercession of and devotion to the saints, the sacraments, mandatory clerical celibacy, and later on the authority of the pope, the ecclesiastical law, censure and excommunication, the role of secular rulers in religious matters, the relationship between Christianity and the law, good works, and monasticism. Some nuns, such as Katharina von Bora and Ursula of Munsterberg, left the monastic life when they accepted the Reformation, but other orders adopted the Reformation, as Lutherans continue to have monasteries today. In contrast, Reformed areas typically secularized monastic property.




The “SOCIETY OF JESUS” was founded by a fanatic, Ignatius de Loyola, in 1541; its object being to combat the Protestant Reformation of Martin Luther.


Loyola was the son of a prominent Spanish family who had distinguished himself as a soldier, and by the immoral excesses of his private life, but who, owing to an accident which maimed him, was supposed to have become “converted,” and during the illness which followed, the Society of Jesus was conceived in his brain, fertile with deviltry.


The Society of Jesus is under the strictest military discipline, due to the military training and psychology of its founder. It is absolutely commanded by the “General” its head, also known as the “Black” Pope. The garb is always a plain black cassock. But here permit me to present the definition of one of its eminent “Generals” of the seventeenth century and which aptly describes it today:


"The members of the Society are dispersed in every corner of the world, and divided into as many nations and kingdoms as the earth has limits; divisions, however, marked only by distance of places, not of sentiment; by the differences of languages, not of affections; by the dissemblance of faces, not of manners. In that family the Latin thinks as the Greek, the Portuguese as the Brazilian, the Hibernian as the Sumatran, the Spanish as the French, the English as the Flemish; and amongst so many different geniuses, no controversy, no contention, nothing which gives you a hint, to perceive that they have more than one…


"Their birth place offers them no motive of personal interest. The same aim, same conduct, same VOW, which like a conjugal knot, has tied them together. At the least sign one man, the General, turns and returns the entire society and shapes the revolution of so large a body.



This oath is also known as "the blood oath" and also known as the "4th vow"


I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly; against all heretics, protestants and liberals, as I am directed to do so, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex, or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. that when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangling cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, so either public or private, as I at any time may be directed to do so by any agent of the pope or superior of the brotherhood of the holy faith, of the Society of Jesus



With his Papal brief, Dominus ac Redemptor (21 July 1773), Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Society as a fait accompli. However, the order did not disappear. It continued underground operations in China, Russia, Prussia, and the United States.


Prior to the eighteenth-century suppression of the Jesuits, in many countries, there had been earlier bans, such as in territories of the Venetian Republic between 1606 and 1656–1657, begun and ended as part of disputes between the Republic and the papacy, beginning with the Venetian Interdict.


By the mid-18th century, the Society had acquired a reputation in Europe for political maneuvering and economic success. Monarchs in many European states grew increasingly wary of what they saw as undue interference from a foreign entity. The expulsion of Jesuits from their states had the added benefit of allowing governments to impound the Society's accumulated wealth and possessions.


The Jesuits were serially expelled from the Portuguese Empire (1759), France (1764), the Two Sicilies, Malta, Parma, the Spanish Empire (1767) and Austria and Hungary (1782).


Pope Clement lived his last year in ill health, remorse, depression, and dread of assassination. Following his death in September 1774, rumors circulated that he had been poisoned.


“Alas, I knew they [i.e., the Jesuits] would poison me; but I did not expect to die in so slow and cruel a manner.”



Pope Pius VII revived the Society of Jesus (1814) and encouraged the religious orders to reorganize themselves. Unlike many of his 18th-century predecessors, he showed great concern for doctrine and issued stern condemnations of church enemies, especially against Freemasons. In the tradition of the humanist popes, he sponsored educational reform and the establishment of Rome as a cultural center. Despite his efforts to adapt the papacy to the political, intellectual, and social conditions of the modern world, the reinstatement of authoritarianism in the Papal States was inevitable, and a “government by priests” followed his death




“My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, [and] is very particular and very horrible. Their [the Jesuit Order’s] restoration is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, despotism, [and] 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.” – John Adams (1735-1826; 2nd President of the United States.



John Carroll joined the Society of Jesus (the "Jesuits") as a postulant at the age of 18 in 1753. In 1755, he began his studies of philosophy and theology at Ličge. After fourteen years, he was ordained to the diaconate and later the priesthood in 1761. Carroll was formally professed as a Jesuit in 1771. Carroll remained in Europe until he was almost 40, teaching at St-Omer and Ličge. He also served as chaplain to a British aristocrat traveling on the continent. When Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Society of Jesus in 1773 in Europe, Carroll made arrangements to return to Maryland. The brief suppression of the Jesuits was a painful experience for Carroll, who suspected the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith of being responsible for this ill-informed decision. As a result of laws discriminating against Catholics, there was then no public Catholic Church in Maryland. Carroll worked as a missionary in Maryland and Virginia.[


Carroll was studying in the Jesuit College in Flanders when Rousseau’s Social Contract “Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains.” set Europe ablaze with its message to the downtrodden masses. The sensation precipitated by that revolutionary proclamation can be but faintly imagined now.


Four years later John Carroll was a full-fledged Jesuit priest, and was returned to his native land where he had an opportunity to get a “close-up” of the working out of the first Popular Government where the people were the only source of authority.


In 1808 this Jesuit priest was created the first Archbishop of Baltimore, by his “Lord-God” the pope. In receiving the pallium he took a more disloyal oath of allegiance than that as a priest, to direct the work of his Order and his church.



Fifty Years In The Church Of Rome, (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Book House, 1968; originally published in 1885) pp. 487, 488; quoting Memorial of the Captivity of Napoleon at St. Helena, by General Montholon, Vol. II, pp. 62, 174.


Chiniquy was a priest who was framed by the Jesuits for a crime he did not commit. He could not find anyone to represent him because all of the lawyers he approached were too afraid of the Jesuits. Finally, a young lawyer convincingly demonstrated in a court of law his innocence and Chiniquy was declared not guilty, thus saving his life. Had he been found guilty, he would have been sentenced to death. Upon hearing the not guilty verdict, Chiniquy wept. When his attorney asked him why, Chiniquy explained that he was afraid his own life had been purchased at the cost of his defender’s life. His words proved prophetic. His lawyer was Abraham Lincoln.


The initial speaker here and the supplier of the quotation marks is the Presbyterian minister and former Roman Catholic priest, Charles Chiniquy, writing in his 1884 book: The quotes come from two meetings Chiniquy claims to have had with Lincoln in the White House, the first in late August of 1861 and the second sometime after a December 8, 1863, letter from Pope Pius IX to Confederate President Jefferson Davis had been made public:


“ ‘I am so glad to meet you again,’ he 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 skillful Roman Catholic murderers, evidently trained by the Jesuits.’ ”


“I know that Jesuits never forget nor forsake. But man must not care how and where he dies, provided he dies at the post of honour and duty.”





The Jesuit Order is an association of highly organized warrior priests. They are politicians first and foremost and have been expelled from virtually every country they have had the opportunity to corrupt and destroy. Their modus operandi is political and educational infiltration and subversion and the fomenting of wars and revolutions in order to weaken and mold the target country into submissive pliability, to then be used to carry out their purpose of global ecclesiastically backed dictatorship. The United States is no exception to this.


“The Suppressed Truth About The Assassination Of Abraham Lincoln” by Burke McCarty and recently CT Wilcox’s “The Transformation of the Republic” document the Vatican/Jesuit link to the assassination and the cover up of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination as well.

In 1822 the Catholic Monarchies of Europe got together with the Vatican and agreed on a plot to destroy the concept of representative popular government. (Rousseau’s Social Contract “Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains.”) Professor Samuel F.B. Morse, a founding member of the American Nativist Movement, investigated this plot and eventually wrote a book, which appeared in installments in the 1835 editions of the New York Observer, entitled, “Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States”. What he found has been in operation ever since, the fully ripened fruits of which we are realizing only since the administration of President Ronald Reagan, the first president to officially recognize the Vatican State since the U.S. cut off all diplomatic ties in 1867 as a result of its connection to the murder of Abraham Lincoln. The country has been in rapid decline since that time and is now in danger of losing forever its freedoms as enshrined in the Constitution and Bill of rights. The push to institute a New World Order and transform the United States into a dictatorship, benign or otherwise, backed by the Roman clergy is now closer than ever. Since the election of President Reagan there has been a decidedly marked increase in the volume of Presidential Executive Orders which amount to a return to the monarchic principles which first gave rise to the American Revolution.


Pages 18 & 19:

After the successful murder of the ‘savior of the nation’, President Lincoln, on that Good Friday Easter weekend of 1865, a date of which the symbolism was not lost, the Jesuit masterminds of that most evil crime began to pressure President Johnson to implement the 14th amendment to the United States’ Constitution. This amendment effectively altered the citizenship away from the states’ proper, under state authority, and transferred this to the Union, under a centralized Federal authority. Before this change one was considered a citizen of the United States by reason of being the citizen of a particular state. This change meant that for the first time in U.S. history the groundwork was laid for the establishment of a more European Monarchial system of government, one which could be corrupted and thus making possible the ability to direct and control all the people under the volition of a single man. This amendment also removed the right of sovereignty of the individual states’ in areas, which were not previously under Federal authority and placed them under a single central government thereby removing the right of secession in the case of entrenched tyranny. The reasoning of the Jesuits was that if they can corrupt the leader and those around him after having corrupted the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the judiciary, the people have no choice but to submit to his authority. Ecclesiastically supported and sponsored dictatorship through the back door could then be established.


Lincoln had rebuffed this proposed amendment all through his term and this obstinacy to the goals of the Church was cited as one of the major reasons for his demise. Another purported reason to eliminate him issued from the fact that he had begun to print currency, called Greenbacks, and declare it the legal tender of the land, thereby shutting out the bankers and preventing them from bleeding the financial life of the Nation, much in the same way as John F. Kennedy had issued his Silver Certificates in an effort to close down the vultures of the private Federal Reserve Bank. Simply put, he was standing directly in the way of the Papists and European Autocrats and therefore had to be removed. And not just him, the entire cabinet was the original target.

Kankakee, October 30, 1883


Dear Father Chiniquy,


I had a successful trip and obtained the affidavit of Horace P. Bennett, who was with Reverend F.A. Conwell, where the assassination of President Lincoln was talked of before it had taken place. Mr. Bennett is a very responsible man and his evidence cannot be impeached.


I had quite a time trying to get the statement of Mr. Linneman. He is the person who first told the statement. After I had it prepared, he refused to swear to it, but simply signs it. He changed his version of the matter considerably after he learned I wanted him to swear to it. He does not say that Lincoln was assassinated, but that he was dead. He pretends too, that some woman told him, but he cannot remember her name. Mr. Bennett says he first told them he learned it from a soldier. He corroborates Mr. Bennett and Conwell as to the fact of there being such a conversation. His statement is not the whole truth or else he would have

sworn to it. But it is very valuable.


I saw myself the large Catholic institution at St. Joseph where Mr. Linneman is. He is a Catholic, and was supplying this institution with provisions, groceries etc. at the time of this conversation. It is almost wholly settled by Roman Catholics, and at that time the community were all Roman Catholic. It is a most remarkable matter that away on the frontier, away from telegraphs and railroads, the assassination was known on Friday evening 4 hours before it took place. Nevertheless, here is the clear evidence of this matter.

Yours Truly,

Stephen R. Moore



I now present the reader with the statement of Mr. Linneman, a man who was intimate with the priests and monks of St. Joseph. A man who could be confided in by them. A man who knew that if it ever got out that he pointed the finger at them as the source of the knowledge of Lincoln’s assassination, they would most likely cut his throat as recompense and as a fulfillment of their murderous oath which will be quoted later.



State of Minnesota

Stern County

Village of St. Joseph

John H. Linneman [the words, “being sworn, declares and” struck out] says that he is a resident of St. Joseph, in said county and state, and has resided there for the past twenty nine years. That he is in the merchandising business. [the word “affiant” struck out and replaced with the word “he”] says that he lived here in April 1865. That on the Wednesday previous to the death of President Lincoln, affiant heard that the President was dead. [This is at least 2 days beforehand] This was a common rumour in the village and it was also talked of at Cold Springs about ten miles from here. That he remembers the time that Mr. Conwell and Mr. Bennett came to his place on Friday evening before the President was killed and [“affiant” struck out] he asked them shortly after they came to his place if they had heard he was dead and they replied they had not. [“affiant” struck out] He heard this rumour in his store from people who came in and out, but he can [“not now” struck out] never remember from whom! That he heard at the time that the statement originated in St. Cloud, which is about eight miles from here. That of that date there was no rail or telegraph communication nearer than St. Paul, a distance of about eighty miles.

October 20, 1883



From these statements we can see that the Jesuits knew several days in advance that Lincoln was to be eliminated. The plan called for the assassination of the entire head of the country in order to leave it leaderless. After Lincoln’s murder there was a concerted effort by certain people to expose the true culprits of the crime, not only of the assassination, but of engineering the Civil War for the purpose of weakening and bleeding the country in order to replace the system of representative government with an ecclesiastically backed dictatorship.


Men such as Charles Chiniquy, Brig. Gen. Thomas M. Harris (a member of the commission which tried the conspirators) and Edwin A. Sherman (a Union officer) combined their resources with the intent of enlightening the public and giving a true history before it was rewritten to cleanse the Catholic Church from all complicity.


The following letters, quoted in full, will give the reader an intimate insight into what was taking place at the time. These letters, housed in the Chiniquy Collection Archives, www.Chiniquy.ca, have never been seen by the public or historians and have only been recently released in 2002 after having been stored in a basement in Quebec for over 120 years.



Seems most, if not all, of the local conspirators to assassinate Lincoln were Catholics.


John Harrison Surratt Jr. (April 13, 1844 – April 21, 1916) was an American Confederate spy who was accused of plotting with John Wilkes Booth to kidnap U.S. President Abraham Lincoln; he was also suspected of involvement in the Abraham Lincoln assassination. His mother, Mary Surratt, was convicted of conspiracy by a military tribunal and hanged; she owned the boarding house that the conspirators used as a safe house and to plot the scheme.


Catholic priest Charles Boucher stated under oath that only a few days after the murder, John Surratt was sent to him by another Catholic priest “Father Lapierre.” Surratt left Montreal and went into England and Rome. Surrat also hid in the Vatican bodyguard unit called the Zoaure before being captured.


In fact, 4 people were tried, convicted and executed for the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Their names were Davy Harold, Lewis Payne, George Atzerodt, and Mary Surratt. All 4 of these people were Roman Catholics.





"Black Pope" is an unofficial designation given to the position of Superior General of the Order of the Jesuits. The name follows from his leadership of the largest Catholic, male religious order and from the color of the plain black cassock worn by members of the Society, including the Superior General. This may have originated from a past concern (most prominent around the 16th and 17th centuries) among Protestant European countries concerning the relative power of the Jesuits within the Roman Catholic Church, and partly because the Superior General, like the Pope, is elected for life.
