Terry Melanson | 2010-05-20 - In Europe and North America, “culture war” was the socio-political preoccupation of the mid- to late-19th Century. However, the struggle for control of the educational establishment actually began a hundred years earlier during the Enlightenment.

Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit - November 2, 2009
45 years ago Life magazine did a twelve page spread on the Jesuits in the United States. Which you can see from the first page (here).
The Life piece features closed Jesuit Novitiates; of Shadowbrook in Lenox, Massachusetts, Sacred Heart Novitiate at Los Gatos near San Jose, California and Woodstock College in Maryland. You will also find interesting comments about the Societies anti-communist work.
There’s something sinister about the linkage between the Vatican, certain German elites and the regulatory power that Anglo-Americans have yielded up to the EU-controlled Financial Stability Board.
Certain actions by Vatican loyalists and German corporatists involved in the European and global banking community have recently consummated in establishing a regulatory power that will oversee all major corporate, financial and banking decisions around the globe. That institution is the Financial Stability Board (fsb), headed by Italian banking guru Mario Draghi.
Draghi, a committed Europhile and dedicated Roman Catholic with connections that run deep within the global banking and finance community, and having historic Vatican Bank and European Central Bank connections, has suddenly become the most powerful regulator of banking, finance and commerce in the world. His overnight elevation to international prominence came in the wake of the 20 most powerful economies in the world signing over their individual sovereign powers regulating their economies to the fsb at the recent G-20 conference in London.
Perhaps Mr. Draghi would have escaped our notice if it were not for the intriguing history that he possesses connecting him with the Vatican, Vatican banking, major financial enterprises that have strong connections with German banking and commercial interests, and both the Italian and the European central banks, and the fact of his Jesuit training. That all amounts to an extremely interesting package when one is considering the CV of the individual who now heads up the most powerful regulatory body within the global economy.
Rhodes originally wrote this on June 2, 1877, in Oxford. Later, that year in Kimberley, he made some additions and changes. What follows is that amended statement. The spelling and grammar errors were in the original. (source)
It often strikes a man to inquire what is the chief good in life; to one the thought comes that it is a happy marriage, to another great wealth, and as each seizes on his idea, for that he more or less works for the rest of his existence. To myself thinking over the same question the wish came to render myself useful to my country. I then asked myself how could I and after reviewing the various methods I have felt that at the present day we are actually limiting our children and perhaps bringing into the world half the human beings we might owing to the lack of country for them to inhabit that if we had retained America there would at this moment be millions more of English living. I contend that we are the finest race in the world and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race. Just fancy those parts that are at present inhabited by the most despicable specimens of human beings what an alteration there would be if they were brought under Anglo-Saxon influence, look again at the extra employment a new country added to our dominions gives. I contend that every acre added to our territory means in the future birth to some more of the English race who otherwise would not be brought into existence. Added to this the absorption of the greater portion of the world under our rule simply means the end of all wars, at this moment had we not lost America I believe we could have stopped the Russian-Turkish war by merely refusing money and supplies. Having these ideas what scheme could we think of to forward this object. I look into history and I read the story of the Jesuits I see what they were able to do in a bad cause and I might say under bad leaders.
It’s been quite a while since I wrote something this extensive for my site. It is part two in a planned three-part series on the real history of the Bavarian Illuminati: Illuminati Conspiracy Part Two: Sniffing out Jesuits.
If you’ve ever read in message forums, blogs, or groups, people confounding the Jesuits with the Bavarian Illuminati; then this one’s for you. On the other hand, if you are one of the confounders to which I speak - please read the article carefully all the way through.
Comments are welcome, but please be civil.
Much like the Pilgrims Society, skillfully researched by Charles Savoie and Joël van der Reijden, the Knights of Malta’s membership is secret (i.e., you can’t just give ‘em a call and ask politely for a list of members). Thus, to confirm who is or isn’t a member of these elite cabals is quite the undertaking. The above research (or data dump) into the Knights of Malta is not nearly as thoroughgoing as Reijden or Savoie, but nonetheless it’s a start. And I certainly appreciate the undertaking.
When someone dies some of their secret affiliations are revealed in the obituary. Until then, however, various other means are required in order to establish membership as a certainty: reporters sometimes let things slip; memoirs are written with revealing admissions; or, even if the obit omits, sometimes the family donates to some prestigious learning institute a large collection of papers and archives from their dearly-departed patriarch.
Catholic priest Malachi Martin does not reside in a rectory, seminary, or any other typical locale for a cleric. In the 1960s, after leaving his post as an official in the Vatican, he obtained release from his vows as a member of the Jesuit order and began living the life of a lay person with canonical approval.
Father Martin is still a Catholic priest who offers Mass in private, but he is deeply troubled by the wholesale alteration of “virtually everything Catholic” over the past three decades. His most recent book, a novel entitled Windswept House (published by Doubleday in 1996), depicts political and religious intrigue by a small group of highly placed Church officials within the Vatican who seek to steer the Roman Catholic Church into the new world order. The novel depicts the efforts of disloyal cardinals who work feverishly to subvert the Pope and the Church, and have no reluctance to use murder, blackmail, and satanism.
Father Martin was interviewed at his New York City residence by John F. McManus, publisher of THE NEW AMERICAN.
Q. You state that your book is neither fiction nor fact, but a “factional” work. What do you mean?
A. Windswept House is a novel. But it is 85 percent based on actual fact, and most of the personages appearing in it are real even though I have given them fictional names. There are also some living persons mentioned such as Mikhail Gorbachev who appears as himself. And a few key characters are actually composites of several real persons.

Back in June there was a story (in English) about the Italian authorities having concluded an investigation “into attempts to slow down legal proceedings against members of the mafia with the help of members of the Freemasonry”:
