His 2007 Executive Order gave diplomatic immunity and special privileges to the Holy See.



Just like Hitler, George W. Bush is the papacy’s good buddy and his Executive Order of March 7, 2007 (Executive Order 13427-Extending Privileges and Immunities to the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations), is a perfect example of how he caters to the wishes of the Vatican.


In that little known executive order Bush,

"granted diplomatic immunity and privileges to the members of the Holy See’s Permanent Observer Mission to the United Nations. Diplomatic immunity ensures safe passage for diplomats outside their home country and they are not subject to lawsuits or prosecution under the laws of the host country.”

Prior to Bush’s order, on July 1, 2004, the UN General Assembly adopted a Resolution, confirming and strengthening the rights of the Holy See as a Permanent Observer in the UN.

The Holy See now enjoys, among other things, the right to participate in the general debate of the General Assembly; the right of reply; the right to have its communications issued and circulated directly as official documents of the Assembly; and the right to co-sponsor draft resolutions and decisions that make reference to the Holy See.

With the Vatican’s power deeply entrenched in the UN and the politics of the U.S., it is wise to take a behind the scenes look at the Jesuit Order and the Knights of Malta, two of the most important groups advancing the Vatican-led New World Order’s goal of a one world government and religion.

The following information is from an internet page entitled Jesuit Wars. It provides a good synopsis of hidden Vatican and Jesuit power and how it operates.
In general it can be said that the Jesuits are mainly involved in:




False education

This is their main avenue for - initial and sustained - political control!


Through the socially, historically, and scientifically flawed education of youngsters and adults.

  • Sciences (and university research funding) for the purpose of socio-psychological control (politics/civics/law, media/sociology, psychiatry/healthcare, history/anthropology/astronomy)

  • Pseudo philosophy about: culture, science, civics, ethics, morality and religion.



Religious perversions and propaganda

Cult promotion:

  • Catholicism (and its variations)

  • Freemasonry

  • Satanism

  • Mysticism

  • NewAge-ism

  • UFO-Aliens (including many books, films and websites on these topics)



Political and judicial meddling


Hegelian dialectic deception politics, by creating, infiltrating, controlling multiple sides to further their own agenda (“thesis + antithesis -> synthesis”).

The present focus by the media on “Muslim terror threats”, especially after the mass trauma psy-op of 9/11, is part of their Hegelian dialectic strategy, to divide groups and direct people’s anger towards this synthesized enemy, instead of the real fascistic threat from the secretive power structures.



Misleading people using casuistry
If the Jesuit mis-education and Catholic missionary strategies do not work in a nation, a covert - and later an overt - war-by-proxy is created to achieve their neurotic goals.

Masonic-insider promotion, infiltration, bribing, threats and assassinations.

Using the many Concordats, 172 to date, that have been signed with ‘sovereign’ nations, to give the Vatican institution special privileges.

The socialist-fascist European Union and related projects

From wikipedia

Vatican City is a member of CEPT (telecommunication), Eutelsat (satellite communication), International Grains Council, Intelsat (satellite communication), ITU (telecommunication) and UPU.


The Holy See, which some confuse with the Vatican City state, participates as an observer in African Union, Arab League, Council of Europe, OAS (35 states of the Americas), IOM (migration), and in the United Nations and its agencies:

  • FAO (food and agriculture)

  • International Labor Organization (labour)

  • UNCTAD (trade and investment)

  • UNEP (environment)

  • UNESCO (education, science, and culture)

  • UN-HABITAT (human settlements)

  • UNHCR (refugees)

  • UNIDO (industry)

  • UNWTO (tourism)

  • WFP (food programs)

  • WHO (healthcare)

  • WIPO (patents, copyrights and trademarks)

It participates as a guest in NAM (?), and as a full member in IAEA (nuclear energy), OPCW (chemical weapons), OSCE (security).


Social perversions of the Jesuits

  • Fascism ideology (Inquisitions, Communism, Labor Zionism, Nazism, Socialism and centrally planned capitalism, Focus on: fear propaganda, conformity, surveillance and repression)

  • Indigenous/Jewish/Christian/Muslim/sovereign culture genocides

  • Poverty promotion and middle-class destruction

  • Pedophile ring support

  • Controlling the Vatican institution and its wealth (financial administration, archive management, policy/speech/project approval, clergy promotions, etc.). Parts of this work are delegated to the Opus Dei organization.

  • Controlling and working together with an even older - and more secretive - multi-layered, Papal military order, called the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (“Knights of Malta”, “Knights Hospitallers”, or “SMOM” for short). The SMOM was founded in Jerusalem in 1080 to wage war and steal for the benefit of the Holy Roman Empire. Today, the SMOM itself is controlled by the Order of the Garter, which in turn is controlled by the Pilgrim Society.



Military Order of Malta Operations

According to researchers and an informative article in the Covert Action Information Bulletin, the following information contained therein, the Sovereign Military and Hospitaler Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, known also as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, or SMOM, is juridically, politically, and historically unique in the world today.

The Bulletin added the following:

Representing initially the most powerful and reactionary segments of the European aristocracy, for nearly a thousand years beginning with the early crusades of the Twelfth Century, it has organized, funded, and led military operations against states and ideas deemed threatening to its power. It is probably safe to say that the several thousand Knights of SMOM, principally in Europe, North, Central, and South America, comprise the largest most consistently powerful and reactionary membership of any organization in the world today.

Although an exclusively [Roman] Catholic organization, in this century it has collaborated with, and given high awards to non-Catholic extremists in its current crusade against progressive forces in the West, the national liberation movements, and the socialist countries.

To be a Knight, one must not only be from wealthy, aristocratic lineage, one must also have a psychological worldview which is attracted to the “crusader mentality” of these “warrior monks.” Participating in SMOM including its initiation ceremonies and feudal ritual dress members embrace a certain caste/class mentality; they are sociologically and psychologically predisposed to function as the “shock troops” of Catholic reaction.


And this is precisely the historical role the Knights have played in the wars against Islam, against the Protestant “heresy,” and against the Soviet “Evil Empire.”


The American Association of SMOM
In Europe SMOM’s membership had been traditionally limited to those who could prove a requisite purity of noble blood for several generations.


Nevertheless, as a concession to the rising political, economic, and military power of the United States, in 1927 SMOM agreed to incorporate an American National Association whose members were not obliged to prove their genealogical pedigree.

When the American Association of SMOM was created in 1927 the founding members included:

  • Patrick Cardinal Hayes

  • Edward L. Hearn

  • Nicholas F. Brady

  • Howard F. Carry

  • Patrick E. Crowley

  • James A. Farrell

  • James A. Fayne

  • Edward N. Hurley

  • James J. Phelan

  • Morgan J. O’Brien

  • John J. Raskob

  • John D. Ryan

By 1941 Francis Cardinal Spellman was listed as the “Grand Protector” and “Spiritual Advisor” of the Order, with John J. Raskob as Treasurer. Members included John Farrell, then President of U.S.Steel, Joseph P. Grace, and John D. Ryan.


In 1934 Raskob, inspired by the French fascist Croix de Feu, and working closely with Morgan Bank’s John Davis, had been a principal financier in the plot to organize a fascist coup in the U.S. The plan failed when General Smedley Butler, who had been set up to lead the project, denounced it.

The 1941 list also included Joseph J. Larkin.


According to Charles Higham’s Trading With the Enemy,

Joseph J. Larkin... [vice-president of Chase Manhattan Bank in charge of European affairs] kept the Chase Bank open... in Nazi-occupied Paris throughout World War II... [He] had received the Order of the Grand Cross of the Knights of Malta from Pope Pius XI in 1928. He was an ardent supporter of General Franco and, by extension, Hitler.


Morgenthau first suspected him as a fascist sympathizer in Octoher 1936... With the encouragement of Schacht, Larkin took on the Franco account and the Reichsbank account, though the Reichsbank was under the personal control of Hitler....


The American-Italian Connection
From 1932 until 1938 Myron Charles Taylor was the Chairman of U.S. Steel. In 1939 he became the U.S. envoy to Pope Pius XII, a post he would maintain until 1950.


Meanwhile, according to Anthony Cave Brown, OSS chief William Donovan secretly had established an intelligence connection with the Vatican as early as 1941, when he evacuated from Lisbon to New York the Dominican Father Felix A. Morlion, who had founded “a European Catholic anti-Comintern” called Pro Deo.


Throughout the war Donovan financed Morlion’s Pro Deo service and in June 1944 he “went to considerable expense, time, and trouble to transport Morlion from New York and establish him at the Holy See.”8

Subsequently Morlion became a key figure in Vatican intelligence, working closely with Giovanni Battista Montini, the future Paul VI.

According to Frederic Laurent,

“All studies [of the post-WWII Nazi networks] have shown the determining role played by the Catholic Church in the flight of war criminals. Since April 1943, following negotiations between Pius XII and the ultra-reactionary American archbishop Francis Spellman, the Holy See became the clandestine center of Anglo-American espionage in Italy.


This collaboration in fact had begun the previous year ...... between Earl Brennan, a veteran of the American State Department and Gian Battista Montini, at the time a bishop and Under-Secretary of State at the Vatican. This close collaboration between the future Paul VI and the American secret services continued after the war through the intermediary James Angleton... ”

With the American Grand Protector of SMOM already in contact with the Vatican, and Allen Dulles busy negotiating with Nazis in Switzerland, the Americans entered Rome June 4, 1944.


On July 7 General Mark Clark was made a Knight Grand Cross of SMOM.

The Knights are mainly involved in:

  • Working for and with the Black Nobility, the Vatican and the various Papal and Royal Orders, especially the Jesuits who are ultimately in control of the Vatican and the Military Order of Malta.

  • Working hand in hand with the Commonwealth of Nations, headed by Queen Elizabeth II, which is made up of 53 nations, spanning the globe, accounting for one-fifth of the land mass of the Earth, and a very high percentage of its strategic resources and population. Though nominally an alliance of independent states, the Commonwealth was itself founded, in the late 19th Century, as a perpetuation of the British Empire.”

    - Jeffrey Steinberg [4]


Global business operations
Banks and international financial structures, especially the Central banks and their superstructure the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

“... the little-known but extremely powerful Bank for International Settlements headquartered in the city (Basel, Switzerland) spent the 1930s and ‘40s quietly laundering the Nazi’s ill-gotten gains under a cloak of neutrality.”

(See also: Banking in Switzerland) Investment banking (real-estate investment & development, venture capital, hedge funds, securities trading, ...)



Global-control funding organizations

  • European Investment Bank

    (BBC funding case: Note also that the BBC has a Stonyhurst Jesuit-college trained director-general: Mark Thompson)


    • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (This largest transparently operating charitable foundation in the world is controlled by 3 trustees:

    • (Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire) Bill Gates,

    • (Bilderberger) Melinda Gates,

    • (billionaire) Warren Buffett”.


    Several Trilateral Commission members work for this ‘charity’ project.)


  • Heritage Foundation (“... received support from nearly 100 major corporations, including Chase Manhattan Bank, Dow Chemical Company, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, GlaxoSmithKline, Mobil, and Procter & Gamble.”)



Secret banking and Offshore banking

Media and telecom corporations (entertainment distractions, fear propaganda / mind-control operations, informational repression, surveillance networks)



Military corporations

  • Energy and mining corporations (petroleum, coal, metals, diamonds, water(?), etc.)

  • Transport corporations (airline/aviation industry, car manufacturing)

  • Pharmaceutical corporations ... and various other corporations

  • At the annual meetings of the secretive Bilderberg Group (founded by Knight of Malta Joseph Retinger), geo-politically important business deals are made.


Political and judicial meddling

“The Order of Malta retains its claim of sovereignty under international law and has been granted permanent observer status at the United Nations. It issues its own passports, stamps and coins and has formal diplomatic relations with 99 states.”



Creating global political structures
Political structures: The socialist-fascist European Union and related projects, United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, ... Military structures: NATO, UN troops, EU police, Blackwater private military, ...

Managing the global Unified Intelligence Service network and the specific Secret Services to defend and promote the Vatican-Jesuit-Masonic interests.

“This Unified International Intelligence Community was built during Rome’s Second Thirty Years’ War (1914-1945) and perfected during Rome’s subsequent Cold War (1945-1990).”


Policy propaganda for the purpose of social, commercial and military control
Policy institutes:

International policies:

  • Chatham House (EU based, formerly called the “Royal Institute of International Affairs” or “RIIA”)

  • International Institute for Strategic Studies “IISS” (EU-based)

  • Trilateral Commission

Special international policies:

  • Tavistock Institute (EU based, social-psychology research)

  • Aspen Institute (US based, social-psychology research)

  • Senlis Council (EU-based drug-policy institute, with offices in Afghanistan, in Kabul, Kandahar and Lashkar Gah)

National policies:

  • Council on Foreign Relations (US)

  • American Enterprise Institute (US)

  • Cato Institute (US)

  • Creating benign charity fronts (just like the Jesuits like to do), to try and confuse people about their fascistic history and their present operations. (examples:

Editor’s Note: For any journalist or broadcaster to talk about the Illuminati, Bilderbergers and Council on Foreign Relations without making a connection to the Knights of Malta reveals they are grossly misinformed or just covering up for the real Vatican-led New World Order culprits.

The following photos provide a pictorial glimpse of Hitler, how his Nazis mixed religion with government, and the support for Hitler by the Protestant and Catholic Churches in Germany.


Hitler with Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo, the papal nuncio in Berlin, 1935


On April 20, 1939, Archbishop Orsenigo celebrated Hitler's birthday.

The celebrations, initiated by Pacelli (Pope Pius XII) became a tradition.

Each April 20, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin was to send "warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer

in the name of the bishops and the dioceses in Germany"

and added with "fervent prayers which the Catholics of Germany are sending to heaven on their altars."

Cardinal Secretary of State, Eugenio Pacelli (later to become Pope Pius XII) signs the Concordat between Nazi Germany and the Vatican at a formal ceremony in Rome on 20 July 1933. Nazi Vice-Chancellor Franz von Papen sits at the left, Pacelli in the middle, and the Rudolf Buttmann sits at the right.

The Concordat effectively legitimized Hitler and the Nazi government to the eyes of Catholicism, Christianity, and the world.

Nazi Graves

One must not forget that Germany represented the most Christianized country in the world in the 1930s and 40s.

Nazi Christian soldiers died as Protestants and Catholics and their grave markers testified to their religion.

Chaplain with a machine gun unit
Most wars are justified on religious grounds.
Of course if a soldier felt uneasy about slaughtering others,

they could always turn to a chaplain who would then patiently explain to them

that killing is allowed by God and about the righteous morality of war.

He might then give a few Biblical examples of God ordained killings.

And then he might tell them that Jesus will forgive them and send them to Heaven if they should happen to die.

Berlin, the region for which he is responsible, now also includes the center of

the National Socialist power structure and so requires a high degree of political skill from its ecclesiastical leader.

Ludwig Muller, a Nazi sympathizer, and a candidate of Hitler, was elected to the position of Reich Bishop in 1933 as Hitler attempted to unite regional Protestant churches under Nazi control.

Hitler did not practice separation of Church & State.
Although Hitler had problems with the Catholic Church and eventually wanted to replace Catholicism with his brand of Christianity, the very fact that Hitler wanted a united German Church proves that he supported Christianity.

Deutsche Christen (German Christians)

The Deutsche Christen (DC) became the voice of Nazi ideology within

the Evangelical Church (the Religious Right of their day) and approved by Hitler.

They proposed a church "Aryan paragraph" to prevent "non-Aryans" from becoming ministers or religious teachers.

Most church leaders solidly supported the "Judenmission."

Only a very few number of Christians opposed Nazism such as the "Confessing Christians"

(a Church movement not recognized by the Protestant orthodoxy) headed by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

The support of Nazism by the majority of German Christians

and German Christian leaders shows the danger of mixing religion with government.
The photo on the left shows Christian worshippers of Christ and Nazism

on the march in front of the Berlin Cathedral. SS guards stand at attention.

The head of the march shows members in party and SA uniforms while pastors follow in the rear.
