Dr. Roger Pearson - President o/t World Anti-Communist League; Editor of Western Destiny and Mankind Quarterly; Board Member o/t French Neo-Nazi Journal Nouvelle Ecole; British Eugenicist; Neo-Nazi

Roger Pearson (born 1927) is a British anthropologist, advocate of eugenics, and editor of several scholarly journals published by the Institute for the Study of Man.

Life and work

Originally from Great Britain, Pearson has also served as (colonial) officer in the British army to India, then directed various British-controlled companies there. He studied at the University of London, where he gained a Master's degree in Economics and Sociology, and a Ph.D. in Anthropology.[1]

In 1958 Pearson founded the Northern League "to foster the interests, friendship and solidarity of all Teutonic nations." He recruited Hans F. K. Günther, who received awards under the National Socialist regime for his work on race, Ernest Cox of the Ku Klux Klan, and Dr. Wilhelm Kesserow, a former SS officer.[2]

He joined the Eugenics Society in 1963 and became a fellow in 1977.

Pearson was brought to the United States in 1965 by Willis Carto of the Liberty Lobby, and contributed to some of Carto's publications, such as Western Destiny and at Noontide Press. At the end of the 1960s, he parted with Carto, and successively taught at Queens University of Charlotte, The University of Southern Mississippi and Montana Tech. During his tenure as dean at Montana Tech, Pearson received $60,000 from the Pioneer Fund.[1][3]

In 1975, he left academics and moved to Washington, D.C., where he founded the Council on American Affairs. He also joined the editorial board of Policy Review, the monthly Heritage Foundation publication in 1977, but was forced to resign in 1978, after the Washington Post exposed Pearson's background following the 11th Conference of the World Anti-Communist League — which he chaired.[1][4]

In 1981 Pearson received the library of Donald A. Swan through a grant from the Pioneer Fund.[5] Pearson also held the directorship of the Institute for the Study of Man, a group which was alleged by Searchlight magazine to have received $869,500 between 1981 and 1996 from the Pioneer Fund [6] and which under Pearson acquired the peer-reviewed journal Mankind Quarterly in 1978.[1] Pearson simultaneously took over as editor and has remained editor through to the present day, though his name has never appeared on the masthead. [2] Pearson has used diverse pseudonyms to contribute to the journal including, J.W. Jamieson. Auschwitz doctor Josef Mengele's advisor, Otmar von Verschuer, was on the editorial advisory board of this journal before his death in 1970.[2] The institute also prints the Journal of Social, Political, and Economic Studies and the Journal of Indo-European Studies and has the Scott-Townsend book imprint. In the editing of the Journal of Indo-European Studies he is assisted by JP Mallory.

[Picture caption] - Roger Pearson.

Both James Jesus Angleton and George Raymond Rocca were forced into retirement in December 1974 following Seymour Hersh's revelations that Angleton's Division had been involved in illegal domestic operations, known as "the family jewels."1

By the Winter of 1977-78 Angleton became one of two Associate Editors of the Journal of International Relations under General Editor Roger Pearson. The other Associate Editor was Gen. Robert C. Richardson III; the Publisher was John Fisher, President of the American Security Council.

Pearson is perhaps the most important neo-Nazi contact and racist propagandist in the U.S. today and had been a former Editor of Willis Carto's Western Destiny.

According to Replica of January 1978, when the Executive Committee of the World Anti-Communist League (WACL) met December 10 and 11, 1977 to plan for their upcoming conference in Washington D. C., ''The main speaker was ..... General Robert C. Richardson III who delivered a brilliant speech on the theme of USA-USSR nuclear balance ...... [and] ......... Dr. Roger Pearson [President of North American Regional WACL and later President and host of WACL in 1978] also made a brilliant exposition."

Replica is the journal of the Latin American Anti-Communist Confederation (CAL) which Jack Anderson revealed to be a CIA created anti-Semitic controller of neo-Nazi death squads.2

Pearson was removed as head of the U.S. branch of the World Anti-Communist League after its 1978 conference in Washington, D.C. because his ties to the neo-Nazi international were too extreme even for WACL which then included death squads, former Nazis, and Nazi collaborators.3

In the July 1978 issue of the racist Mankind Quarterly, the Editor-in-Chief, and Pearson's mentor, Robert Gayre, announced that Pearson would take over publication of the magazine. Robert Gayre had received the Grand Cross of Merit from SMOM in 1963, having already been editor of the Mankind Quarterly for three years. In June 1979 Pearson was listed as a member of the 'Comite de Patronage' (the Advisory Board) of the French neo-Nazi journal Nouvelle Ecole.

Today Pearson continues to publish in Washington, D.C. several journals including Mankind Quarterly; The Journal of Social, Political and Economic Studies; and The Journal of Indo-European Studies; he remains on the Board of Trustees of the American Foreign Policy Institute.4

Also, SMOM members Roger Pearson and James Jesus Angleton have edited the rightwing Journal of International Relations . (Pearson, former Editor of the racist journals Western Destiny and Mankind Quarterly , currently sits on the board of trustees for the American Foreign Policy Institute. In 1977, he was removed as head of the U.S. branch of the World Anti-Communist League, a Reverend Moon-financed organization, because he was "too extreme!" Angleton had worked with Luigi Gedda of Catholic Action to fight communism through the Civic Committees and rig the 1948 Italian elections.)

(OSJ) Nelson Mandela - 11th President of South Africa; 18th Secretary General of Non-Aligned; Anti-apartheid activist; Leader of the African National Congress Movement and its Armed Wing: Spear of the Nation (MK)

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela IPA: [xolíɬaɬa mandéːla] (born 18 July 1918) is a former President of South Africa, the first to be elected in fully representative democratic elections. Before his presidency, Mandela was an anti-apartheid activist and leader of the African National Congress and its armed wing Umkhonto we Sizwe. He spent 27 years in prison, much of it in a cell on Robben Island and the remainder in Pollsmoor Prison, on convictions for crimes that included sabotage committed while he spearheaded the struggle against apartheid.

Among opponents of apartheid in South Africa and internationally, he became a symbol of freedom and equality, while the apartheid government and nations sympathetic to it condemned him and the ANC as communists and terrorists.

Following his release from prison in February 11, 1990, his switch to a policy of reconciliation and negotiation helped lead the transition to multi-racial democracy in South Africa. Since the end of apartheid, he has been widely praised, even by former opponents.

Mandela has received more than one hundred awards over four decades, most notably the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. He is currently a celebrated elder statesman who continues to voice his opinion on topical issues. In South Africa he is often known as Madiba, an honorary title adopted by elders of Mandela's clan. The title has come to be synonymous with Nelson Mandela.



At seven years of age, Rolihlahla Mandela became the first member of his family to attend a school, where he was given the name "Nelson," after the British admiral Horatio Nelson, by a Methodist teacher who found his native name difficult to pronounce.[citation needed]

His father died of tuberculosis when Rolihlahla was nine, and the Regent, Jongintaba, became his guardian. Mandela attended a Wesleyan mission school next door to the palace of the Regent. Following Thembu custom, he was initiated at age sixteen, and attended Clarkebury Boarding Institute. He completed his Junior Certificate in two years, instead of the usual three. Destined to inherit his father's position as a privy councillor, in 1937 Mandela moved to Healdtown, the Wesleyan college in Fort Beaufort which most Thembu royalty attended. Aged nineteen, he took an interest in boxing and running.[1]

After matriculating, he started to study for a B.A. at the Fort Hare University, where he met Oliver Tambo, and the two became lifelong friends and colleagues. He also became close friends with his kinsman, Kaiser ("K.D.") Matanzima who, however, as royal scion of the Thembu Right Hand House, was destined for the throne of Transkei, a role that later led him to embrace Bantustan policies which made him and Mandela political enemies.[1] At the end of Nelson's first year, he became involved in a boycott by the Students' Representative Council against the university policies, and was asked to leave Fort Hare.

Later, while imprisoned, Mandela studied for a Bachelor of Laws from the University of London External Programme (see below).


Guerrilla activities

In 1961, Mandela became the leader of the ANC's armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (translated as Spear of the Nation, also abbreviated as MK), which he co-founded. He coordinated a sabotage campaign against military and government targets, and made plans for a possible guerrilla war if sabotage failed to end apartheid. A few decades later, MK did wage a guerrilla war against the regime, especially during the 1980s, in which many civilians were killed. Mandela also raised funds for MK abroad, and arranged for paramilitary training, visiting various African governments.

Mandela explains the move to embark on armed struggle as a last resort, when increasing repression and violence from the state convinced him that many years of non-violent protest against apartheid had achieved nothing and could not succeed.[6][2]

Mandela later admitted that the ANC, in its struggle against apartheid, also violated human rights, and has sharply criticised attempts by parts of his party to remove statements supporting this fact from the reports of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.[7]

On 5 August 1962 Mandela was arrested after living on the run for seventeen months, and was imprisoned in the Johannesburg Fort. The arrest was made possible because the CIA tipped off the security police as to Mandela's whereabouts and disguise.[8][9][10] Three days later, the charges of leading workers to strike in 1961 and leaving the country illegally were read to him during a court appearance. On 25 October 1962, Mandela was sentenced to five years in prison. Two years later on 11 June 1964, a verdict had been reached concerning his previous engagement in the African National Congress (ANC).

While Mandela was imprisoned, police arrested prominent ANC leaders on 11 July 1963, at Liliesleaf Farm, Rivonia, north of Johannesburg. Mandela was brought in, and at the Rivonia Trial, Mandela, Ahmed Kathrada, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Andrew Mlangeni, Raymond Mhlaba, Elias Motsoaledi, Walter Mkwayi (who escaped during trial), Arthur Goldreich (who escaped from prison before trial), Denis Goldberg and Lionel "Rusty" Bernstein were charged by the chief prosecutor Dr. Percy Yutar, the deputy attorney-general of the Transvaal, with the capital crimes of sabotage (which Mandela admitted) and crimes which were equivalent to treason, but easier for the government to prove. The second charge accused the defendants of plotting a foreign invasion of South Africa, which Mandela denied.

In his statement from the dock at the opening of the defence case in the trial on 20 April 1964 at Pretoria Supreme Court, Mandela laid out the clarity of reasoning in the ANC's choice to use violence as a tactic. His statement revealed how the ANC had used peaceful means to resist apartheid for years until the Sharpeville Massacre. That event coupled with the referendum establishing the Republic of South Africa and the declaration of a state of emergency along with the banning of the ANC made it clear that their only choice was to resist through acts of sabotage. Doing otherwise would have been tantamount to unconditional surrender. Mandela went on to explain how they developed the Manifesto of Umkhonto we Sizwe on 16 December 1961 intent on exposing the failure of the National Party's policies after the economy would be threatened by foreigners' unwillingness to risk investing in the country.[11] He closed his statement with these words:
“ During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to the struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.[6] ”

Bram Fischer, Vernon Berrange, Harry Schwarz, Joel Joffe, Arthur Chaskalson and George Bizos were part of the defence team that represented the accused. Harold Hanson was brought in at the end of the case to plead mitigation. All except Rusty Bernstein were found guilty, but they escaped the gallows and were sentenced to life imprisonment on 12 June 1964. Charges included involvement in planning armed action, in particular four charges of sabotage, which Mandela admitted to, and a conspiracy to help other countries invade South Africa, which Mandela denied.


Iraq invasion views

In 2003 Mandela criticised the foreign policy of the George W. Bush administration in a number of speeches. Criticising the lack of UN involvement in the decision to begin the War in Iraq, he said, "It is a tragedy, what is happening, what Bush is doing. But Bush is now undermining the United Nations." Mandela stated he would support action against Iraq only if it is ordered by the UN. Mandela also insinuated that Bush may have been motivated by racism in not following the UN and its secretary-general Kofi Annan on the issue of the war. "Is it because the secretary-general of the United Nations is now a black man? They never did that when secretary-generals were white".[40]

He urged the people of the U.S. to join massive protests against Bush and called on world leaders, especially those with vetoes in the UN Security Council, to oppose him. "What I am condemning is that one power, with a president who has no foresight, who cannot think properly, is now wanting to plunge the world into a holocaust." He attacked the United States for its record on human rights and for dropping atomic bombs on Japan during World War II. "If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don't care."[40]

As a member of the United States House of Representatives in 1986, Dick Cheney had voted against a congressional resolution calling for Mandela's release from prison. In 2002, Mandela called Cheney a "dinosaur."[41]

(OSJ(+SMOM?)) Sir Nathaniel Mayer Victor Rothschild, 3rd Baron Rothschild - MI5 Agent; Chairman o/t Agricultural Research Council; Worldwide head of research at Royal Dutch Shell; Security Adviser to Margaret Thatcher; Head o/t Central Policy Review Staff

Nathaniel Mayer Victor Rothschild, 3rd Baron Rothschild, GBE, GM, FRS (October 31, 1910 – March 20, 1990) was a biologist by training, a cricketer and a member of the prominent Rothschild family. He was the son of Charles Rothschild and Rozsika Edle Rothschild (née von Wertheimstein).


Rothschild was educated at the Harrow School and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read Physiology, French and English. He played first-class cricket for the University and Northamptonshire. At Cambridge he was known for his playboy lifestyle, driving a Bugatti and collecting art and rare books.

At Trinity, Rothschild joined the secret society, the Cambridge Apostles, which at that time was predominantly Marxist, though he "was mildly left-wing but never a Marxist".[1] There he became friends with KGB spies Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt, who were also members. Rothschild gave Blunt £100 to purchase "Eliezer and Rebecca" by Nicholas Poussin.[2] The painting was sold by Blunt's executors in 1985 for £100,000 (totalling £192,500 with tax remission[3]) and is now in the Fitzwilliam Museum.[4] He is also alleged to have supplied an apartment in London where Burgess and Blunt could meet, leading to suspicions that he was the so-called Fifth Man in the Cambridge Spy Ring. The Fifth Man has never been formally identified, although more than a dozen names have been suggested, including that of John Cairncross.

Rothschild inherited his title at the age of 26 following the death of his uncle Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild on 27 August 1937, and sat as a Labour Party peer in the House of Lords.

World War II

Rothschild was recruited to work for MI5 during World War II in roles including bomb disposal, disinformation and espionage, winning the George Medal. Because of his association with Burgess and Blunt, he was questioned by Special Branch at the time of Blunt's unmasking in 1964 and was apparently cleared, subsequently working on projects for the British government. Rumours continued to circulate, and Rothschild himself took the step of publishing a letter in British newspapers on 3 December 1986 to state "... I am not, and never have been, a Soviet agent." Roland Perry's 1994 book The Fifth Man repeated the charges without firm authority, and there remains no evidence to suggest that Rothschild spied for the Soviet Union. [5]

Post-war work

After the war, he joined the zoology department at Cambridge University from 1950 to 1970. He served as chairman of the Agricultural Research Council from 1948 to 1958 and as worldwide head of research at Royal Dutch Shell from 1963 to 1970. He continued to work in security issues, namely as a security adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He was also head of the Central Policy Review Staff from 1971 to 1974 (known popularly as the "Think Tank"), a high-level committee which provided policy advice to government until Margaret Thatcher abolished it. In 1982 he published An Enquiry into the Social Science Research Council at the behest of Keith Joseph.

The Orders of St John in the Alliance are Orders of Chivalry and are distinguished from other national Orders because of their Christian faith and their traditions as religious confraternities of so called Christian lay people.Officialy they say they are united by a common historical tradition and a unique vocation: the care of the sick and the poor but in reality there are keeping the Christian Tradition in the firm hands of the Catholic mafia in Rome.The mafia of the Vatican illuminati and their Catholic/Zionist New World Order has a secret army of intelligence operatives and they are the Knights of Malta . One of the most illustrius figures of this Catholic/Zionist illuminati alliance use to be Sir Nathaniel Mayer Victor Rothschild, 3rd Baron Rothschild (October 31, 1910 – March 20, 1990) a high level member of the Sovereign Order of Malta, a proud member of the Vatican illuminati elite' forces . For this kind of people joining the Knights of Malta is a unique possibility that offers you the nature of a Religious Order with an Order of Chivalry that in reality is the Secret Service of the Vatican, beacuse thats what they realy are, and the Order of Malta is widely recognised as a sovereign entity of International Law wich means alot of Tax benefits and infinite possibilities for the usual illuminati criminals like Baron Victor Rothshild who spent most of his life in the intelligence field around the world working for the Vatican illuminati of the SMOM in various ways . ...some recentelly say even as a Soviet spy http://www.henrymakow.com/001411.html

Calvi for example was murdered by the Mafia assassins of the Thule Society in a ritual murder ordered by the Jesuits the P2 and sponsored by Victor Rothschild a loyal follower of the Vatican who was always involved with the very important business of the important P2 Lodge of another illustrius Knight of Malta member the infamous Licio Gelli. Gelli's lodge consist of extremely important members of the SMOM [Sovereign Military Order of Malta], including armed forces commanders, secret service chiefs, head of Italy's financial police, 30 generals, eight admirals, newspaper editors, television and top business executives and key bankers - including Calvi. Licio Gelli and others in P2 were behind the assassination of Pope John Paul 1 and it's interesting to know that some have been also thinking of Gelli as a Soviet spy just like they are doing now with his friend Victor Rothshild but in reality these two have always been loyal Vatican slaves nothing else!

Early life

Seán Patrick O'Malley was born as Patrick O'Malley in Lakewood, Ohio, the son of Theodore and Mary Louise (née Reidy) O'Malley. O'Malley, his sister, and his older brother grew up in Herman, Pennsylvania. At age 12, he entered St. Fidelis Minor Seminary, a boarding school for students considering joining the Franciscan order, in Butler, Pennsylvania. While there, in addition to studying the normal high school subjects, he also studied Spanish, Greek, German, and Hebrew, and he was active in theater.

On July 14, 1965, at the age of 21, O'Malley professed his vows in the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin and took the name Seán in honor of St. John the Apostle. After he was ordained Deacon he spent a brief period in Easter Island, Chile. He was ordained a priest on August 29, 1970, at age 26, by Bishop John McDowell, an auxiliary of Pittsburgh.

After graduating from St. Fidelis, he attended Capuchin College in Washington, D.C. and The Catholic University of America, where he is now a member of the Board of Trustees. He graduated from CUA with a master's degree in religious education and a Ph.D. in Spanish and Portuguese literature. He once said of his alma mater, "I have a great affection for Catholic University. I studied there, received my doctorate there and even taught there for a couple of years. It’s always a joy to go back to see the progress that they have made."[1] O'Malley served as a professor at The Catholic University from 1969 to 1973.

In 1973, he was asked to minister to Latinos living in the D.C. area. He founded Centro Catolico Hispano (Hispanic Catholic Center), an organization which provided educational, medical and legal help to immigrants. He opened a Spanish bookstore and founded the first Spanish newspaper in the D.C. area. In 1978, William Cardinal Baum appointed him episcopal vicar for the Portuguese, Hispanic, and Haitian communities, and became the executive director of the archdiocesan Office of Social Ministry. He was also named knight commander of the Order of Prince Henry the Navigator in 1974 by Portugal for his service to its people.


O'Malley was appointed coadjutor bishop of the Diocese of Saint Thomas on May 30, 1984 by Pope John Paul II. He received his epsicopal consecration on the following August 2 by Bishop Edward John Harper, CSSR, with Archbishop James Hickey and Bishop Eugene Marino, SSJ, serving as co-consecrators. He served as coadjutor for one year and then succeeded Bishop Harper as Bishop of Saint Thomas on October 16, 1985, upon Harper's resignation. While in the Virgin Islands, he worked with the homeless, and opened a home for people with AIDS. He was made an honorary chaplain of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta in 1991.

On June 16, 1992, following a series of sexual abuse allegations leveled against Father James Porter, O'Malley was chosen to head the Diocese of Fall River. He was installed on the following August 11. While Bishop of Fall River, O'Malley settled 101 abuse claims and initiated a zero-tolerance policy against sexual abuse. He also instituted one of the first comprehensive sexual abuse policies in the Roman Catholic Church. He also worked closely with the Portuguese and Hispanic population, which make up a large per-centage of the Catholics in the diocese. In 1998 John Paul II appointed O'Malley to the Special Assembly for Oceania of the Synod of Bishops. - After serving in Fall River for ten years, he was appointed Bishop of Palm Beach in Florida, on September 3, 2002. He was installed on the following October 19. The appointment came after the diocese had been rocked by revelations of sexual abuse against two of its former bishops: Joseph Symons (resigned on 1998 after admitting he molested five boys while he was a pastor) and Symons' successor Anthony O'Connell (resigned in 2002 after admitting to molesting an underage seminarian).

At age 59, just nine months after arriving in Palm Beach, O'Malley was called once again to Massachusetts. He was appointed Archbishop of Boston on July 1, 2003, upon the resignation of Bernard Cardinal Law after criticism of Law's management of the sexual abuse scandals. O'Malley was installed in Boston on the following July 30.


Pope Benedict XVI elevated O'Malley and 14 others to the rank of cardinal in the consistory on March 24, 2006. O'Malley was one of two Americans to be elevated on that day (the other was Archbishop William Levada, who succeeded Pope Benedict as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 2005). The Pope announced the appointments during an audience on the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter at Antioch on February 22, 2006. O'Malley was created Cardinal Priest with the title of Santa Maria della Vittoria. In May 2006, he was named as a member of both the Congregation for the Clergy and the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life in the Roman Curia.

On September 19, 2006, O'Malley became the first and, as of December 2006, only cardinal with a personal blog, www.CardinalSeansBlog.org. As of Christmas 2006 he began offering a regular podcast as well.[2] He views the podcasts "as yet another tool [he] can use to reach the young people in our Church who more and more are turning to the Internet for their information."[3]

Cardinal O'Malley will be able to participate in any future papal conclaves that begin before his 80th birthday on June 29, 2024.

Order of Malta holds reception for new cardinal

BY Donis Tracy--Pilot correspondent
Posted: 3/31/2006

ROME — Boston Knights and Dames of the Order of Malta who had traveled to Rome to attend the consistory greeted their new cardinal at an open-air reception held in his honor March 26.
Nearly 50 people gathered at the Casa Santa Maria, a house for clergy members furthering their studies in Rome, in order to congratulate Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley and wish him well.
“This entire celebration has been spectacular,” said James F. O’Connor, chairman for the Knights of Malta for the Archdiocese of Boston. “This whole thing — it has just been phenomenal.”
According to O’Connor, Cardinal O’Malley has always been a supporter of the Knights of Malta, even serving as a chaplain for the order before becoming archbishop of Boston.
The Knights of Malta are a lay religious order of the Church, with a nearly 1,000-year-old history.
The group boasts 11,000 members worldwide, according to O’Connor, adding that in the United States there are currently 3,000 members. About 240 members of the order reside within the Archdiocese of Boston.
“Archbishop Seán has been through a very difficult time, which has taken an extra amount of holiness to get him through it. He has an aura of holiness,” said South Boston businessman Jack Shaughnessy.
“You can’t know him without loving him,” he added. “It’s a great day for Boston, an exciting day for the Church in Boston.”
“Rome has recognized his gift,” commented Dr. Mary Jane England, president of Regis College in Weston.
“We need his leadership at this time,” she said.
“We’ve got to get our heads back up in Boston and having a cardinal-archbishop might just do that,” she added.
Joining the Knights and Dames of the Order of Malta were also representatives from the Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulcher in Boston.
Dennis Looney, on behalf of the Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulcher, presented Cardinal O’Malley with a Knights Grand Cross, an insignia of a high rank for the cardinal.
“Thank you for everything you do for the order,” Looney told the cardinal.

n Oct. 25, the Order of Malta had their annual Mass at Boston College’s St. Mary Chapel.
It was a very successful meeting for the Order of Malta. Here is the homily I gave at the Mass:

During my installation ceremony, I introduced the scores of O’Malleys who assembled for Mass in our Cathedral. There was a gasp when the congregation saw how many members of the O’Malley clan were present. So, I said: “And these are only the ones we’re talking to.” It got a big laugh because in big Irish families there is always somebody who is mad at somebody.”
The motto of the Order of Malta is “Tuitio Fidei et Obsequium Pauperum”: defense of the Faith and assistance to the poor and suffering.

Recently, I was in an old Capuchin Monastery where the beams in the ceilings of the refectory were made from the ships of the Battle of Lepanto. The way we defend the Faith today is by living it and passing it on, not by invoking military prowess and force. The world needs a new apologetic as we try to answer the real questions that modern people struggle with and to answer them in the light of Christ’s Gospel. The answers need to be accompanied by the witness of a life committed to the service of poor and the sick.

When the world becomes convinced that those who live as Christ’s followers are truly making this a better world, then we will get their attention and have a hearing. So, defending the faith and helping the poor are inexorably linked in our life of discipleship, and especially in the spirituality of Malta.
We cannot afford to be guilty bystanders; we must raise the flag of the colony of resident aliens in defense of life, of marriage and of the Church. Our message must emanate from a life transformed by prayer and committed to the works of mercy. To me that is what Malta needs to be about.

Thank you for being part of it.

Additionally, it will be noted that the Cardinal's shield also rests upon a Maltese Cross in its proper colors of red and white. The inclusion of this cross in the design signifies that at the request of His Eminence James Cardinal Hickey, then Cardinal-Archbishop of Washington, DC and Chaplain of the Washington Lieutenancy of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, Cardinal O'Malley was named as a Chaplain "Ad Honorum" of the Order in 1991. By this position the Bishop became a member of one of the oldest chivalric order in Christendom, the Hospitaliers of St. John of Jerusalem, who, at one time, had their headquarters on the Island of Malta (the headquarters are now In Rome) and have thereafter been known as the Knights of Malta.

His Eminence, Sean Cardinal O'Malley stops after the International Mass to greet
Ligia Remick (Baltimore). Ms. Remick tutored then Father O'Malley in Portuguese
when both were in Washington in the '70's.
One highlight was having one
of our distinguished former Chaplains, His Eminence Sean
Cardinal O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston (who has since transferred
to the American Association)
, as the Principal Celebrant
for Sunday Mass in the underground Basilica of St. Pius X.
Not only were the Mass and the Homily mostly in English for
the first time in recent memory, but Cardinal O'Malley was
very humorous and insightful in his teaching.

Joseph Michael Pigott - President of Pigott Realty Ltd.; President o/t Canadian Construction Association and Hamilton Chamber of Commerce; Vice President & Director of the Toronto Dominion Bank and North American Life Insurance Company; Director of Canada Permanent Trust, Artlas Steels Ltd, and United Fuel Investments Ltd.

Joseph Pigott

Joseph M. Pigott was born in Hamilton, Ontario on 23 February [1885], the son of a prominent Irish contractor (Michael Pigott, himself the founder of Pigott Construction Co. and the son of an Irish farmer who emigrated to Canada and settled near Guelph).

In 1903 he began working for his father's construction company. In 1909 Pigott travelled to Saskatchewan with his younger brother Roy where they secured a large contract to build St. Paul's Hospital in Saskatoon.

While in the West, Pigott met and married Yvonne Prince, daughter of the Honorable Joseph Benjamin Prince of Battlefield, Saskatchewan. They had 6 sons: William, Jean-Jacques, Joseph, Patrick, Ronald and Paul.

Together the brothers would direct Pigott Construction to fortune and fame. Roy looked after the engineering and Joseph took care of the business administration. The first $1,000,000 year came in 1926, and in 1930, Hamilton's earliest skyscraper, the 16-storey Pigott Building, was completed.

After the Second World War Pigott Construction was Canada's largest privately-owned construction company amassing more than $113,000,000 in business in a single year.

Pigott built some of Canada's largest industrial plants and finest buildings: the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; Crown Life Insurance Company head office, Toronto; Bank of Canada, Ottawa; a plant for General Motors, Oshawa, and buildings for A. V. Roe Company in Malton. In Hamilton, buildings built by his firm included: the Canadian Westinghouse offices, Banks of Nova Scotia, Royal and Montreal, McMaster University, the County Court House, Westdale Secondary School, St. Joseph's Hospital, the Pigott Building, the new City Hall and the Cathedral of Christ the King.

Pigott was honoured for many of is accomplishments:

Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great and later "Con Placa" - in recognition of the Cathedral, by Pope Pius XI.

Commander of the British Empire (in 1946), in recognitiion of his services to the Government of Canada during the war, particularly as president of the Wartime Housing Ltd.

Knight of magistral grace of the Sovereign and Military order of Malta (in 1953) and awarded the honorary degree of LL.D by McMaster University (1962) in consideration of his contributions to social welfare and to the political and intellectual life of Christian society.

He was a former president of the Canadian Construction Association, Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, a former vice-president and director of the Toronto-Dominion Bank, president of Pigott Realty Ltd., vice-president and director of North American Life Assurance Company, director of Canada Permanent Trust Company, Atlas Steels Ltd., and United Fuel Investments Ltd. Pigott was also a former president of the board of governors of the Art Gallery of Hamilton, a director of the Ontario Heart Foundation, chairman of the advisory committee of St. Joseph's Hospital, a member of the Hamilton Club, the Hamilton Golf and Country Club and the National Club of Toronto. Pigott played an enormous role in the development of Hamilton. He died in Hamilton on 20 April 1969.

Sources of this informaiton include content from the Hamilton Hall of Fame Inductees as well as information coming from the University of McMaster archives (whose reflections come from the donation of Joseph M. Pigotts daily journals donated to the University in 2000).

Joseph Michael Pigott

Joseph Michael Pigott's prolific career left a legacy of prominent buildings. As a family man, a community advocate, a volunteer and business man, Joe Pigott set a standard of performance which few can match.

Born in 1885 into a construction family, he began working with his father, and soon stuck out on his own. As he would later say, it was natural for a young man to have ideas different from his fathers and a need to put these into action. He moved out west to start a company with his brother Roy. Following a successfully hospital bid, his father joined them. Later, upon his brothers return from WWI, he and Roy began to steer the Pigott Construction Company to its well known success.

Joe Pigott believed rewards could come indirectly and did benefit from involvement in associations and his community. He was the first president (1920) of the Hamilton Construction Association, first President of the Canadian construction Association (1921) and an honourary life of Apprenticeship (1928-1960), and a man known as the "father" of apprenticeship in Ontario.

His wider community contributions include time as President of the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Director of the Ontario Heart Foundation, Advisory Board member of St. Joseph's Hospital, Member of the McMaster University Board of Governors, 1932 President of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce and non-paid President form 1941-1948 of the government of Canada War Time Housing.

He was not so much a man of academia as a leader by intuition and intellect. His writings, conceptual planning, drive, and leadership came from what he called " A liberal education in the field". One look at the long list of Pigott building projects easily demonstrates he learned well: the present City Hall, Royal Ontario Museum, Bank of Montreal (Main & James), Westdale High School, original McMaster Buildings, Hamilton Armoury, the Pigott Building and the Cathedral of Christ the King.

For the latter project, a labour of love, he was Knighted Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great by Pope Pius XI, he was a Knight of Magistral Grace of the Sovereign and Military Order of Malta, a Hamilton Gallery of Distinction inductee, Commander of the Order of British Empire (CBE) and received an Honourary Law Degree from McMaster University. He served as a Vice President & Director of the Toronto Dominion Bank and North American Life Insurance Company. Director of Canada Permanent Trust, Artlas Steels Ltd, and United Fuel Investments Ltd.

On the death of Joe Pigott, McMaster President Dr. H. G. Thode was quoted by the Hamilton Spectator as saying "Hamilton knew him as a builder of great imagination and strong courage. He will be mourned by men and women in all walks of life". The most Reverend Joseph Ryan, Bishop of Hamilton said "When you have a man of such high position and such humble ways, you feel the loss even more."

Joseph Pigott may be gone, but his contribution and legacy remains, in buildings, in writings, his influence on the construction industry association development and in the development of industry standards.

Cathedral of Christ the King. Upon completion of the Cathedral, Pope Pius XI, in recognition of his accomplishment on this and other buildings, created him a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great and later "Con Placa". In 1946 in acknowledgment of his services to the Government of Canada during the war Pigott was created Commander of the British Empire. His service to Canada as president of the Wartime Housing Ltd. provided solutions to some most serious problems at that critical time. In consideration of his contributions to social welfare and to the political and intellectual life of Christian society, he was invested as a knight of magistral grace of the Sovereign and Military order of Malta in 1953, and in 1962, he was awarded the honorary degree of LL.D by McMaster University.

George Raymond Rocca - Deputy Chief of CIA Counterintelligence under Angleton; Head of CIA section: Research and Analysis, CI/R&A.

Employment History

*Deputy Chief of the Staff

*Angleton's Deputy Chief of Counterintelligenee Division

*Counter-Intelligence Officer

*Chief of Research and Analysis In the Counterintelligence Division

*Chief of Research and Analysis Group
DD/P Counter-Intelligence

*Member, Staff
DD/P Counter-Intelligence

*Chief of Research and Analysis for the Staff

*Chief of Research and Analysis for the Staff



Raymond Rocca (born February 22, 1917) was reputedly ANGLETON'S chief deputy. Raymond Rocca attended the University of California at Berkeley, where he studied Fascist Italy. In 1942 he received a Doctorate Degree in 1942. He went into the Analytical Section of the Foreign Broadcast Intelligence Service, where he learned content analysis as a Italian broadcast analyst. He joined the OSS Counter-Intelligence component in April 1944. He remained in Italy in the service of the OSS and its successor agencies, the Strategic Services Unit and the CIA. Raymond Rocca met ANGLETON in August 1944 and became his executive assistant.
Raymond Rocca remained in Italy until after the 1948 elections and was ANGLETON'S liaison with the Italian intelligence service until his own return to Washington in the Summer of 1953. Raymond Rocca joined the DD/P Counter-Intelligence Staff in July 1955, as chief of its Research and Analysis Group. His functions there included production and editing of finished Counter-Intelligence studies, case studies, briefings, defector debriefings, accumulation of Counter-Intelligence doctrine, and research, stimulation and participation in Counter-Intelligence training. In July 1969 Raymond Rocca became Deputy Chief of the Counter-Intelligence Staff. Clare Edward Petty reported: "Rocca was the head of a CI section called Research and Analysis, CI/R&A.
MEMORANDUM FOR: Chief, CI/RA [Raymond Rocca]

- On December 27, 1946 James Angleton received the Croci Al Merito Seconda Classe from the Order, the same day as George Raymond Rocca. Rocca went on to become Angleton's deputy chief of Counterintelligence Division of the CIA and was the liaison between the Warren Commission and the CIA following the Kennedy Assassination. (See sidebar.)

The Knights of Malta were an offshoot of the Knights of St. John, who, like the Teutonic Knights, fought in the Crusades. The Knights of Malta became an ultra-conservative international group granted sovereignty by the Vatican. On December 27, 1946, ANGLETON received the Knights of Malta's Croci Al Merito Seconda Classe, the same day as Raymond Rocca.

After the war, Gehlen was hired by the newly created CIA to organize its operations in Europe! CIA directors known to be Knights of Malta have been John McCone and William Casey, and so was George Rocca, a deputy chief of CIA counter-intelligence. The Knights of Malta were almost certainly involved in the guns-for-drugs Iran-Contra affair in the US, which brought Oliver North to world public attention. North was represented at the hearings by the law firm of Bennett Williams, a Knight of Malta. One of the Americans who intervened to ensure that selected Nazi personnel escaped from Germany to the United States after the war was the industrialist, J. Peter Grace, the one-time American head of the Knights of Malta. This Order is an ultra-extreme authoritarian organisation which connects with the highest levels of the Elite web.

On another note, I just finished watching "The Good Shepherd" for the third time. As you know it is about the CIA's Counterintelligence wing led by SMOM James Angleton with his right hand man, the Jesuit Fordham trained SMOM Italian Roman Catholic Raymond Rocca. Thus the Jesuits controlled the apex of CIA power via Angleton and Rocca. It was here at this pinnacle that the Order united the CIA with the British MI5/MI6, with the Soviet KGB, with the Israeli Mossad, with French Intelligence, with the Shah's SAVAK, INTERPOL, etc. This is the Black Pope's International Intelligence Community financed by the Black Pope's International Drug Trade with its trillions laundered through the Black Pope's International Banking Community run by the Knights of Malta. This is the picture described in VAIII.

Hanna Siniora - Co-CEO o/t Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information (IPCRI)

Hanna Siniora Awarded a Peace Prize of Honor from the

Order of the Knights of Malta

Saturday, April 21, 2007 at 14:00

Bethlehem Room, Tantur Ecumenical Institute

Today, Saturday April 21, 2007 Mr. Hanna Siniora, the Co-CEO of IPCRI – the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information was awarded a tribute of honor for his life time commitment to Palestinian-Israeli peace by the Order of the Knights of Malta. This tribute has been awarded to Heads of State and world leaders for peace. The winner of the tribute prior to Mr. Siniora was the President of Burundi and Nelson Mandela will receive the tribute after Mr. Siniora.

The Order of St. John also known as the Knights of Malta has created a federation of Knightly Orders unifying all of the Holy Orders to work together for World Peace. A group of the Knights of Malta is now on their first visit to the Holy Land since the Federation was established. The head of the Delegation, composed of Knights of the order including two members of the European Parliament from Italy and other dignitaries, awarded Mr. Siniora a Silver Olive Branch. When the Pope came to Holy Land in 2000, he took with him a small olive tree plant and planted it in the garden of the Vatican. The prize is made of a branch of that olive tree covered with silver.

After announcing that the Knights of Malta intend to build a university for peace in the Holy Land, Mr. Siniora took the floor and spoke of his 40 years of experiences working for peace between the Palestinian people and the Israeli people. Mr. Siniora mentioned that in 6 weeks we will be marking 40 years since the 1967 war and the beginning of the occupation. During that we, IPCRI together with other important organizations like Combatants for Peace will be holding events throughout Israel and Palestine calling for peace – two states for two peoples, an end of the occupation and an end to the conflict.

Mr. Siniora was then officially made a Knight of Malta. The Chief of the Order declared Mr. Siniora’s induction into Knighthood by removing his own personal pin of the Order and placing it on Mr. Siniora’s lapel.

Hanna Siniora, currently the Co-CEO of IPCRI has in fact dedicated his life to making peace. He has been a courageous and active advocate of the rights of the Palestinian people all the time recognizing the importance and urgency of making peace with Israel.

Hanna Siniora is well known and respected throughout the region and the world.

Dr. Paul McHugh - Head of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medine; Founder and First Director, Bourne Behavioral Research Laboratory of New York Hospital; Member o/t Presidential Council on Bioethics (Eugenics)

Paul R. McHugh received his medical education at Harvard Medical School and did an internship at the Peter Bent Brigham (now Brigham and Women's Hospital) and a neurology and neuropathology residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He continued his education in Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry, University of London, and in the Division of Neuropsychiatry at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. After his training, he was eventually and successively Professor of Psychiatry at Cornell University School of Medicine, Clinical Director and Director of Residency Education at the New York Hospital Westchester Division; Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the Oregon Health Sciences Center. He was Henry Phipps Professor and Director of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Psychiatrist- in-Chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital from 1975-2001. The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine named him Distinguished Service Professor in 1998.

Dr. McHugh was Founder and First Director, Bourne Behavioral Research Laboratory of New York Hospital, Westchester Division at Cornell. He was Chairman of the Medical Board, Johns Hopkins Hospital, 1984-89. From 1985-1991, he was Chairman of the Professorial Promotions Committee at Hopkins School of Medicine. From 1992-2001, he directed the Blades Center for Clinical Practice and Research in Alcohol/Drug Dependence at Hopkins.

In 1986-89, Dr. McHugh was Chairman of the NIH BioPsychology Study Section. From 1982-1992, he was Associate Editor, Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology for the American Journal of Physiology. He is also on the editorial boards of several psychiatry journals and book series. From 1993- 1998, he was on the Editorial Board of The American Scholar.

The first is to create a model department of academic psychiatry by rendering explicit the conceptual structure of psychiatry and by demonstrating what this structure implies for patient care, education and research. The second is to teach how the brain-mind problem is embedded in these concepts and how it affects the thought and actions of psychiatrists. The third is to investigate the "motivated" or "driven" behaviors, including the addictions that are open in this era to multiple levels of analysis from molecular biology to social science. These ideas should be clear from the directions he has given his Department, the careers he has fostered, and the books and papers he has written.

Selections from among his publications:

* The Perspectives of Psychiatry, 1983 (book with P. R. Slavney). 2nd Edition in 1998
* William Osler and the New Psychiatry, 1985 (Award address)
* Mini-Mental State: A Practical Method for Grading the Cognitive State of Patients for the Clinician, 1975 (journal article with M. F. Folstein and S. E. Folstein), [Citation Classic, 1989]

Paul McHugh, M.D.
Council Member

Paul R. McHugh, M.D. is the University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He was the Henry Phipps Professor of Psychiatry, Director of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and psychiatrist-in-chief at the Johns Hopkins Hospital from 1975-2001. He is the author of 4 books and more than 150 papers.

Since it was created by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops last June as a lay-based review body, board members have met nine times in various cities around the country. “We have spent hundreds of hours and done tons and tons of work on the issues of priest abuse,” said board member Anne Burke, a justice of the Illinois Court of Appeals. “And almost everywhere we’ve gone, the local bishops have been so thoughtful and worked very hard to portray themselves as cooperating with us. They’ve said Mass for us and met with us.” Burke said she could not understand the apparent lack of hospitality on the part of Egan.

Last September Pamela Hayes wrote to Egan notifying him of the New York meeting. She received a warm reply, she said, in which the cardinal said details of his involvement could be worked out later. Meanwhile, Justice Burke, who is a Dame of Malta, along with another board member who is a knight, invited all 13 board members to gather for the dinner to be held the evening of Jan. 17, just after the conclusion of the board’s own meeting. The knights’ annual white-tie gala at the Waldorf-Astoria, regularly draws 800 to 1,000 attendees with tickets at $250 a person. Burke said she and the other Malta members intended to host the full board. Besides Burke, the Malta members on the national review board are William Burleigh, chair and former CEO of E.W. Scripps; Raymond Siegfried, CEO of the NORDAM Group; and Dr. Paul McHugh, head of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. When Burke met Egan at the bishops’ conference in November, she told him of the plans.

Weeks later as the full board was meeting in Covington, Ky., they received a conference call from a high level member of the bishops’ conference, whose name they declined to divulge. He stated that Egan did not want non-knights attending the dinner. The presence of the full board, he said, might cause controversy and might take attention away from the knights’ good works. The spokesman also relayed word that Egan did not want McChesney speaking in New York, though no reason was reportedly given for this order.

The review board meeting coincided with a dinner for the Knights of Malta, an elite organization of Catholic lay persons active in the church. Review board members Anne Burke, Ray Siegfried, Bill Burleigh and Paul McHugh were Malta members.

Bob Hope - Actor and Comedian

Bob, the son a stonemason and an aspiring concert singer, had a career that stretched across seven decades.

Though born in Eltham, south London, Hope moved to Cleveland, Ohio, when he was just four, where, as a youth, he entered local talent shows.

His casual careers included a butcher's delivery boy, a soda jerk, a shoe salesman, pool hustler and boxer (under the name 'Packy East'), but it was the stage where he was most at home.

He worked vaudeville houses as a dancer, where he was signed up to fill the bill of the Fatty Arbuckle Show, before a stint on Broadway.

Hope's break was in the 1933 Broadway musical Roberta, during which time he met a young singer Dolores, who he married a year later. They remained married until his death.

In May 1937, Bob signed a 26-week radio contract for the Woodbury Soap Show, and the next year was given his own show on NBC radio, which became ratings-topper. He continued to host a regular show until 1956.

His radio fame led to Hollywood. Aside from one-reel comedy shorts, Hope's first film role was in The Big Broadcast of 1938.

Hope starred in more than 50 films, though is still most famous for the 'Road' movies with Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, which made his name. He only got the role after George Burns and Fred MacMurray passed.

Though he has never won a best actor Oscar, he has been awarded two honorary academy awards, two special awards and a humanitarian award.

Alongside his film work, Hope also maintained a stong presence on TV.

Although he appeared on the first commercial television broadcast on the West Coast in 1947, and in several experimental broadcasts before the Second World War, he was really a latecomer to the medium, not convinced it would succeed, not hosting his first show until 1950 - and TV never became the mainstay of his career.

Over his lifetime, he has been awarded more honours than any other entertainer - an achievement that earned him a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

He was given an honorary knighthood in 1998, and on hearing the news said: "I'm speechless. 70 years of ad lib material and I'm speechless."

President Kennedy presented him with the Congressional Gold Medal, President Johnson awarded him the Medal of Freedom and Bill Clinton gave him a Medal of the Arts. He had 58 honorary degrees and was even been declared an 'honorary veteran' by the US congress for his his commitment to the nation's armed forces.

The first "GI Bob" appearance was in May 1941, at a Californian air base and all but two of his shows during the war were broadcast from military installations. He continued to perform for the forces right up to the Gulf war.

Bob's other great passion was golf, organising the annual Desert Classic in Palm Springs, California.

Bob Hope KBE (May 29, 1903 – July 27, 2003) was an English-born entertainer who appeared in vaudeville, on Broadway, in radio, television, movies, and on numerous USO tours for U.S. military personnel.

Titles and designations
* Honorary Veteran of the United States Armed Forces, a tribute from the United States Congress given in recognition of the entertainment he provided U.S. troops during war and peacekeeping missions (October 29, 1997)

* Honorary Knight Commander of the British Empire (KBE) In recognition of his contributions to film, to song, and to the entertainment of troops in the past. (1998). He had previously been made an Honorary Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1976.

* Knighthood from the Knights of Malta and the Order of St. Sylvester from the Vatican

* Silver Buffalo Award (highest adult award given by the Boy Scouts of America)

* The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels.

* Made a Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great by Pope John Paul II in 1998[12]


Comedian Bob Hope, knighted by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, shows the Masonic square, known also as the triangle, V, downward delta sign.

Likewise he has been feted by his native England. Most recently in 1998, by order of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Bob received an honorary knighthood - Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (KBE) in recognition of his contribution to film, to song and to the entertainment of troops in the past. Upon hearing the news, Bob said, "I'm speechless. 70 years of ad lib material and I'm speechless."

Confirmation of membership in the Order of Pope Saint Sylvester
Among recipients of the Order of Pope Saint Sylvester are former Maltese Prime Minister George Borg Olivier, Prince Karl August von Thurn und Taxi, entertainer Bob Hope, KBE, and Italian politician Sergio Berlinguer. In Great Britain, association members include businessman John Studzinski and interfaith campaigners HE Anthony Bailey, Professor David Khalili and Mahmoud Khayami.

Vittorio Emmanuelle IV - Prince of Naples (Last Crown Prince of Italy)

Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples (Vittorio Emanuele Alberto Carlo Teodoro Umberto Bonifacio Amedeo Damiano Bernardino Gennaro Maria di Savoia) (born February 12, 1937) was the last Crown Prince of Italy and is considered to be a pretender to the defunct Italian throne. He is commonly known in Italy as Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia.

Although the titles and distinctions of the Italian royal family have not been legally recognised in Italy since 1946, the titles are still legally recognised in many other countries such as Belgium, and he is often styled Prince of Naples out of courtesy, particularly by supporters of the former monarchy.

Vittorio Emanuele also uses the title Duke of Savoy and claims the headship of the House of Savoy. These claims are disputed by supporters of his cousin, Amedeo, 5th Duke of Aosta. He is also a claimant to the title of King of Jerusalem. He is known to some Italian monarchists as Vittorio Emanuele IV. He has lived for most of his life in exile – following a referendum in 1946 in which a majority of the Italian people voted for Italy to become a republic.

On several occasions he has been the centre of controversy in Italy and abroad due to a series of incidents, including remarks that were seen by some as anti-semitic. In France he was tried on a murder charge, of which he was cleared of unlawful killing but convicted of a firearms offence. More recently, Vittorio Emanuele was arrested on June 16, 2006, following an investigation started by Henry John Woodcock of the Public Prosecutor's Office in Potenza, Italy, on charges of criminal association, corruption and exploitation of prostitution.[1]

Early life and family

Vittorio Emanuele was born February 12, 1937 in Naples to Umberto, Prince of Piedmont, who would later become the last King of Italy, and Princess Marie-José of Belgium. When Umberto II left Italy after a referendum abolishing the monarchy in 1946 (see also birth of the Italian Republic), the Savoy family lived in exile, mostly in Switzerland and Portugal. Following the separation of the exiled ex-King and ex-Queen, Prince Vittorio Emanuele lived with his mother in an estate in Merlinge, Switzerland. Vittorio Emanuele and his family currently reside in Geneva.

After an 11-year engagement, Vittorio Emanuele married Swiss biscuit heiress and world-ranked water skier Marina Doria in Tehran on October 7, 1971.

Vittorio Emanuele has worked as a banker and an aircraft salesman[citation needed].

Vittorio Emanuele has one son, Emanuele Filiberto, Prince of Venice and Piedmont, born in Geneva, June 22, 1972. Emanuele married Clotilde Courau, a French actress, on September 25, 2003.

Other honours

Vittorio Emanuele is a Bailiff Grand Cross of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and a Bailiff Grand Cross of Justice of the Constantinian Order of St George.

He also claims to hold several Russian dynastic orders, including the Order of Saint Andrew, Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Alexander Nevsky, the Order of the White Eagle, and the Order of Saint Anne. He is also a Knight of the Order of the Redeemer of Greece, and the Order of the Immaculate Conception of Vila Viçosa. He is the heir to the Savoy claim to the title of "King of Jerusalem".

Unilateral declaration of Kingship (1969)

Vittorio Emanuele unilaterally declared himself King of Italy on December 15, 1969.[6][7] He argued that by agreeing to submit to a referendum on his place as head of state, his father (Umberto II) had thereby abdicated. Vittorio Emanuele took this action after his father allegedly called for Amedeo, 5th Duke of Aosta to visit him in Portugal to name him his heir.[8] Under his self-assumed powers as King of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele conferred the title of Duchess of Sant'Anna di Valdieri on his then fiancee, Marina Doria.[9]

Killing of Dirk Hamer (1978-1989)

In the night of August 17 or the morning of August 18, 1978, on the island of Cavallo (which lies off the south coast of Corsica), Vittorio Emanuele discovered his yacht's rubber dinghy had been taken and attached to another nearby yacht. Arming himself with a rifle, he attempted to board the yacht. He shot at a passenger he had awakened; the shot missed the passenger but mortally wounded Dirk Hamer (the nineteen-year-old son of Ryke Geerd Hamer), a passenger sleeping on the deck of another adjacent yacht. The prince admitted civil liability for the death in a letter dated August 28, 1978.[10] Dirk Hamer died of his wounds on December 7, 1978, and Vittorio Emanuele was arrested.

On October 11, 1989, Vittorio Emanuele was indicted on charges of fatal wounding and offensive-weapon possession. But on November 18, 1991, after thirteen years of legal proceedings, the Paris Assize Court acquitted him of the fatal wounding and unintentional homicide charges, finding him guilty only of unauthorised possession of a US30MI rifle.[11] He received a six month suspended prison sentence.[12]

When incarcerated in June, 2006, on unconnected charges of corruption (see below, "Arrest and imprisonment"), Vittorio Emanuele was recorded admitting that "I was in the wrong, [...] but I must say I fooled them [the French judges]",[13] leading to a call from Dirk Hamer's sister for Vittorio Emanuele to be retried in Italy for killing her brother.[14] He also described, in a phone call, the magistrates investigating him as "penniless, envious turds whose wives are probably cuckolding them while they keep track of me."[15][16]

Allegations of anti-semitism

Vittorio Emanuele also said in recent years that the anti-Semitic laws passed under Mussolini's regime were "not that terrible".[17][18] Other senior members of the House of Savoy have also in the past downplayed the significance of the anti-Jewish laws signed by Vittorio Emmanuele's grandfather[citation needed]. "I'm not saying it was he who signed the racial laws in 1938. But, as a Savoy heir, Victor Emmanuel has never distanced himself from them," the president of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities, Amos Luzzatto, said in an interview with Il Corriere della Sera newspaper.[19]

On 27 January 2005, in a letter published by Il Corriere della Sera, Vittorio Emanuele issued an apology to Italy's Jewish leadership asking forgiveness from the Italian Jewish community, and declaring that it was an error for the Italian Royal Family to have signed the racial laws of 1938 [1].

Fight with Amedeo (2004)

On May 21, 2004, following a dinner held by King Juan Carlos I of Spain on the eve of the wedding of his son Felipe, Prince of Asturias, Vittorio Emanuele punched his third cousin and arch-rival Amedeo of Savoy, Duke of Aosta, twice in the face.[20] Part of the background to his behaviour during this incident is the support Duke Amedeo has received from monarchists as legitimate heir to the Italian throne, since Vittorio Emanuele officially had to recognise the Italian republic as the valid government of the country in order to return to Italy[citation needed].

Arrest and imprisonment (2006)

On June 16, 2006 he was arrested in Varenna and imprisoned in Potenza on charges of corruption and recruitment of prostitutes for clients of the Casinò di Campione (casino) of Campione d'Italia.[21][22][23]

The enquiry was conducted by Italian magistrate John Woodcock, of British ancestry, famous for other VIPs' arrests.[24]

After several days, Vittorio Emanuele was released and placed under house arrest instead.[25] He was released from house arrest on July 20, but he had to stay inside the Italian borders.

George William Cardinal Mundelein - Archbishop of Chicago

(Proof Positive)
George William Mundelein, later George Cardinal Mundelein, (July 2, 1872–October 2, 1939) was an American prelate who served as the eighth bishop and third archbishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of Chicago, serving in that post from 1915 to 1939.


He was born on July 20, 1872 in New York City to a family of German ancestry, educated at La Salle Academy in New York, Manhattan College, St. Vincent Seminary, in Rome, and ordained a priest on June 8, 1895 in the Diocese of Brooklyn. From 1895 to 1909, he served at Williamsburg, Pa. [1]On June 30, 1909 he was appointed Titular Bishop of Loryma and Auxiliary Bishop of Brooklyn, New York, where he was ordained a bishop on September 21, 1909. He was appointed Archbishop of Chicago, on December 9, 1915 and installed February 9, 1916. He was elevated to Cardinal on March 24, 1924, and served as archbishop until his death at the age of 67.

During his tenure at the Archdiocese of Chicago, Mundelein launched an effort to unify ethnic Catholic groups such as the Poles and Italians into territorial, instead of ethnic, parishes with mixed success. St. Monica's (Colored) parish, however, was endorsed by Mundelein as the city's sole black parish, leading to distaste for the Archbishop in both the early 1900's and today. After constructing the landmark Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary in Chicago, Mundelein built St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Area, now Mundelein, Illinois. Quigley Seminary was the site of Mundelein's 1937 "paper hanger (wallpapering)" speech, criticizing Adolf Hitler.

The archdiocese greatly expanded its charity functions during the Great Depression, rivalling that of Chicago's Associated Jewish Charities. A city-wide network of St. Vincent de Paul Societies was established.

Chicago. In Rome, George Cardinal Mundelein received the Grand Cross of the Sovereign Order of Malta, originated in the first crusade by the Knights of the Order of the Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem. He is the first American so honored.

MUNDELEIN RECEIVES GRAND CROSS OF MALTA; He Is Also Feted by the College of Propaganda -- Will Sail for Home on May 3.

April 24, 1924, Thursday

Section: SPORTS, Page 21, 372 words

ROME, April 23. -- The Grand Cross of the Sovereign Order of Malta, originally founded as the Knights of the Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem during the First Crusade, was conferred upon Cardinal Mundelein of Chicago in a private ceremony at his hotel today. The decoration, the first ever conferred upon a citizen of the United States, was pinned to the Cardinal's breast by Count Lambertini, the Grand Master.
(NB: It is odd that Lambertini is listed as Grand Master of the Order of Malta since the official Grand Master was Frà Galeas von Thun und Hohenstein)

Conrad N. Hilton - Chairman and Director o/t Hilton Hotels Corporation and Hilton International Company

About Conrad N. Hilton

Hard work, faith in God, an abiding patriotic confidence in the United States and the capacity to dream as large as his imagination would allow were the cornerstones of Conrad Hilton's life.

Born in a primitive adobe dwelling on Christmas Day, 1887, in San Antonio, New Mexico Territory, Conrad Hilton was one of seven children born to a Norwegian immigrant father and a German-American mother. Working at his father's general store, the young boy developed entrepreneurial skills that would guide him for a lifetime.

The most enduring influence to shape Mr. Hilton's philanthropic philosophy beyond that of his parents was the Roman Catholic Church and its Sisters. He credits his mother, Mary, with guiding him to prayer and the Church whenever he was troubled or dismayed — from a boyhood loss of a beloved pony to severe financial losses during the Great Depression. His mother continually reminded him that prayer was the best investment he would ever make.

Conrad Hilton was recognized worldwide for his leadership and vision during the Depression and World War II as well as in prosperity. Using extraordinary instinct, enthusiasm and business acumen, he created the largest and most profitable international hotel chain.

Beginning with his first purchase, the 40-room Mobley Hotel in Cisco, Texas, in 1919, to the thousands of guest rooms at Hilton properties throughout the world at the time of his death, his name remains synonymous with hotels. He capitalized on this global success by taking advantage of his role as an entrepreneurial statesman to promote a post-World War II philosophy of reconciliation and nonviolence, as reflected in a Hilton corporate motto of that time, "World Peace Through International Trade and Travel."

Conrad Hilton successfully combined a lifetime of professional achievement together with a genuine feeling of concern and responsibility toward the less fortunate. This most sensitive of human qualities is reflected beautifully in his Last Will and Testament wherein he creates a legacy by directing that his wealth be eternally reinvested to alleviate human suffering throughout the world.

Michael Novak - American Catholic Philosopher, Journalist, Novelist, and Diplomat

Michael Novak (born September 9, 1933) is an American Catholic philosopher, journalist, novelist, and diplomat. The author of almost 25 books on the philosophy and theology of culture, Novak is most widely known for his book The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism (1982). In 1994 he was awarded the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion, which included a million-dollar purse awarded at Buckingham Palace. He writes books and articles focused on capitalism, religion, and the politics of democratization.

Novak served as U.S. chief ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in 1981 and as the ambassador to the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe. Additionally, Novak served on the board of directors of the now-defunct Coalition for a Democratic Majority, a kind of faction in the Democratic Party, which sought to influence Democratic Party policies in the same direction that the Committee on the Present Danger later did. Novak is currently George Frederick Jewett Scholar in Religion, Philosophy, and Public Policy at the American Enterprise Institute. On December 12th, 2007 he declared his support for the presidential candidacy of Mitt Romney.

Early life and education

Novak was born in 1933 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. He earned an M.A. in history and philosophy of religion from Harvard University in 1966, a Sacrae Theologiae Baccalaureus (a degree in theology), from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome in 1958, and a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and English (Summa Cum Laude) from Stonehill College in 1956.

Novak attended Harvard University to study philosophy and religion, hoping to obtain a doctorate in philosophy of religion. Novak stated that he thought the philosophy department was too focused on analytic philosophy, neglecting religious philosophy[citation needed]. He did not receive his doctorate and he started work as a writer.

Early writings

Second Vatican Council

Novak worked as a correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter during the second session of the Second Vatican Council in Rome, where he also got the opportunity to fulfill a book contract for a fellow reporter who was not able to complete the project. The result was Novak's second book, The Open Church, a journalistic account of the events of the second session of the Council.

Early books

Michael Novak has published two novels: The Tiber Was Silver (1962) and Naked I Leave (1970). At the time, he considered the modest $600 advance to be "a fortune" [1]

Stanford years

Novak's friendship with the Presbyterian theologian Robert McAfee Brown during the Second Vatican Council led to a teaching post at Stanford University, where he became the first Roman Catholic to teach in the Humanities program. Novak taught at Stanford University from 1965 to 1968, during the key years of student revolt throughout California. During this period, he wrote A Time to Build (1967), discussing problems of belief and unbelief, ecumenism, sexuality, and war. In A Theology for Radical Politics (1969), Novak makes theological arguments in support of the New Left student movement, which he states advanced the renewal of the human spirit rather than just reforming social institutions. His book Politics: Realism and Imagination includes accounts of visiting American Vietnam War deserters in France ("Desertion"), the birth and development of the student movement at Stanford ("Green Shoots of Counter-Culture") and philosophical essays on nihilism and Marxism.

SUNY Old Westbury

Novak left Stanford for a post as dean of a new "experimental" school at the newly-founded State University of New York at Old Westbury, Long Island.

Novak's writings during this period included the philosophical essay The Experience of Nothingness (1970, republished in 1998), in which he cautioned the New Left that utopianism could lead to alienation and rootlessness. Novak's novel Naked I Leave (1970) chronicles his experiences in California and in the Second Vatican Council and his journal from seminarian to reporter.

His later teaching and writing career

After serving at Old Westbury/SUNY from 1968 to 1973, Novak launched the humanities program at the Rockefeller Foundation in 1973-1974. In 1976, he accepted a tenured position at Syracuse University as University Professor and Ledden-Watson Distinguished Professor of Religion. In the fall semesters of 1987 and 1988, Novak held the W. Harold and Martha Welch chair as Professor of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame.

In the spring of 1978, Novak joined the American Enterprise Institute for Social Policy Research as a Resident Scholar, a position he still holds at the present time.

Novak is a frequent contributor to magazines and journals including First Things and National Review. He is a member of the Catholic Advisory Board for the Ave Maria Mutual Funds. Novak is also a board member of the Capital Research Center and the Center of the American Experiment.


* Novak believes that Utopian beliefs can lead to the weakening of social bonds. He wrote that "the family is the human race's natural defense against utopianism." (The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism)

* He states that religion can 'thrive only in a personal universe' and not universities or companies, and that Western Humanism, which he states is the leading belief system of most of academia, does not ask "the fundamental questions about the meaning and limits of personal experience" and that "they leave aside the mysteries of contingency and transitoriness, for the certainties of research, production, consumption." ("God in the Colleges," A New Generation: American and Catholic (1964))

* Novak states that the Holy Trinity and God are often thought of in abstract and impersonal terms in philosophy, and that they should be "thought of as a Communion of Divine Persons—radiating his presence throughout creation, calling unworthy human beings to be his friends, and infusing into them his love so that they might love with it." (From “The Love That Moves the Sun,” in A Free Society Reader)

Daniel Imperato - Presidential Candidate 2008 (Libertarian Party); American Businessman; Chaplain for the Latin/African American Chaplain's Association

Daniel Imperato (b. March 9, 1958, Boston, Massachusetts) is an American businessman, currently a candidate for the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States in 2008. Imperato at one time also sought the Green Party and Reform Party nominations. A resident of West Palm Beach, Florida, the 2008 election is Imperato's first run for political office. Imperato's campaign literature describes him as an "independent Libertarian" and an "alternative candidate" for the Presidency. He is married and has one stepson.

Early life

Imperato grew up in Revere, Massachusetts. Daniel is the son of Paul "Sonny" Imperato and the late Mary C. Imperato. The Imperatos were originally immigrants from Italy. When promoting The Red Worm (A film he supposedly produced), Imperato claimed his family was descended from the Roman Emperor Nero. [1] While living in Boston, Massachusetts, Imperato played hockey and at one point was a semi-professional ice hockey player.[citation needed]

Honors & Donations

Imperato claims to currently be a Papal Knight [1] and a Knight of Malta [2]. Daniel Imperato also claims to be a knight of the Orden Bonaria[citation needed], and that he serves as the organization's United Nations representative.[citation needed]

Imperato was a board member and headed up the Palm Beach, Florida branch office of the African Center Foundation. Imperato's website claims the organization is a United Nations non-governmental organization [3] but in reality only works with the United Nations Economic and Social Council [4]. Imperato also is a Chaplain for the Latin/African American Chaplain's Association [5].

Imperato has also purchased several awards from the Republican Party. His campaign site while mentioning these "awards" (even though they in no way signify achievement) fails to mention that he paid for them [6].[citation needed] These awards include a 2004 NRCC (National Republican Congressional Committee) Honorary Chairman of the Business Advisory Council (an award which is purchased through a donation to the NRCC, see NRCC "award winners"), a Ronald Reagan Gold Medal Winner (purchased title through donation), and a 2007 recipient of the Order of Merit from the NRCC (purchased title through donation).[2]


Imperato has participated in several candidate forums held by third parties. To date, Imperato has not secured the nomination of any political party. He has been vocal on many "culture war" issues, including keeping religious symbols, such as the Ten Commandments, and religious references, such as "In God We Trust", in American government. [3].

Imperato has appealed very strongly to the Hispanic community with a pro-immigration policy, and has been covered by many Hispanic media outlets. [4] In October 2007, Imperato spoke at the Hispanic Achievers Awards Banquet and the HAP Institute Forum on Energy Policy in Las Vegas, Nevada [5]Imperato has supported ballot access for third parties, meeting with the Oklahomans for Ballot Access Reform Movement in Oklahoma. [6].

Imperato appeared in front of the Reform Party of the United States of America, for their consideration as their Presidential candidate in 2008, as reported in the Tampa Bay Sun, March 10, 2007. In addition, Imperato participated in a debate with other candidates at the Libertarian Party State Chairs Conference in Orlando on March 19, 2007. Imperato is touring the country visiting Libertarian Conventions in ten states. [7]. At the North Carolina convention Imperto claimed he had spent about $2 million of his own money on his campaign [7], but his FEC fileing showed this to be false, having personally contributed $33,000 of the $33,150 raised [8]. The Libertarian Nominating convention is scheduled for May 2008 and the Green Party Convention is scheduled for the Summer of 2008. Imperato has been placed on the ballot for the Libertarian Party Presidential primary election in California.[8] On July 10, 2007

He joined other candidates at the Independent Green Party of Virginia Presidential Debate at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., moderated by CBS newsman, and former host of Meet the Press, Marvin Kalb. [9] July 12-15, 2007 Imperato attended the Green Party national meeting in Reading, Pennsylvania. Imperato was among the ten candidates participating in a two hour forum before 200 Green Party delegates.[9] At the forum Imperato was highly criticized for his use of the Green Party election database on his website under the heading Independents Across America. The implication that Green candidates were independents, and his refusal to remove this section sealed his fate with the party, because in the words of one delegate "Imperato clearly demonstrated his true colors and lack of interest in helping to grow the party".[citation needed] On July 13th, Imperato attended the opening of the new Green Party office in Washington, D.C. Speaking to assembled Greens.

Daniel J. Imperato

I am always intrigued by the Libertarian Party and its candidates and positions. Daniel Imperato is particularly fascinating. I do think that he has done an especially wise thing — reaching out to other “third parties” in order to help them all have access to ballots. He even addressed the Green Party in July of 2007 on the subject of ballot access.


He is a Knight of Malta, a Papal Knight, and has apparently been made recently Grand Prior of the Orden Bonaria… which is certainly something not on most candidates’ resumes.

Affiliations and Memberships:

* Youth Mentor
* Ordained as a chaplain for the Latin/African American Chaplains Association
* U.N. Representative and Knight of the Orden Bonaria
* Member, Papal Knight and Knight of Malta
* Recipient, NRCC Businessman of the Year Award

Roberto Alejos Arzú - Guatemalan Sugar Industrialist; Rightwing Anti-Communist Revolutionary; CIA Asset; Leader of SMOM Guatemala


In 1965 HEMMING was involved with Roberto Alejos Arzu in an attempt to overthrow the Government of Guatemala. [CIA Intell. Information Cable IN 74057 10.16.65] The CIA reported that in April 1965 "Roberto Alejos Arzu, Guatemalan millionaire who resided in Miami Beach, Florida, planned the overthrow of the Government of Guatemala in the Spring of 1965, using a group of Cuban emigres he had recruited for the operation. On May 4, 1965, Alejos and Luis Sierra Lopez, military leader of the group, were apprehended and their arms cache seized by United States Government officials. There have been several reports on Alejos' recent involvement in another attempt to overthrow the Guatemalan Government. On October 13, 1965, Armando Medina Montes de Oca, a member of Roberto Alejos Arzu's abortive plot to overthrow the Guatemalan Government in the Spring of 1965, said that the pilot who flew Roberto Alejos to Puerto Barrios, Guatemala, a short time ago [October 13, 1965] was GERALD PATRICK HEMMING. The aircraft landed at Puerto Barrios, Guatemala, where it remained for about two weeks. HEMMING is now in Miami. (Field Comment: HEMMING, an American soldier-of-fortune and United States Marine, has been engaged in Cuban revolutionary activities for about five years. HEMMING, leader of INTERPEN, a guerilla group, was most recently involved in the recruitment of Cuban emigres with guerilla warfare experience who would be willing to fight the Communist guerillas in the Dominican Republic on behalf of General Antonio Imbert Barrera. It is believed this plan never materialized.) Medina intends to give this information to the new Guatemalan Consul General in Miami, hoping that this will sharpen his interest in Alejos. (Field Comment: It was recently reported that Medina accepted an offer of $30,000 to deliver Alejos safely to Guatemalan authorities)." [CIA IN 74057 - 10.16.65 - Source: "A Cuban emigre, former member of a Cuban Commando Group, who is no longer associated with activists. Source is regarded as reliable, and previous reporting from him has proved to be accurate."] HEMMING told this researcher: "We were going to overthrow Montenegro. He was cutting deal with the guerrillas. Alejos didn't like it. He wouldn't let Cuban exiles launch raids against Castro. He eventually got ousted." Before the 1980 election Alejos complained that "most of the elements in the State Department are probably pro-Communist...either Mr. Carter is a totally incapable president or he is definitely a pro-communist element." [Jay Marshall, The Iran-Contra Connection]

Alejos Arzú

An important theme in the history of the Knights of Malta is its support to the central american counter-revolution through personages such as the Guatemalan Roberto Alejos Arzú, and of private institutions like the Amicares Foundation.

Alejos Arzú has had a long career right-wing activist: 'In 1959, the powerful sugar industrialist Roberto Alejos Arzú, put at the disposal to the Central Intelligence Agency U.S. (CIA) his extensive farm The Helvetia at which Cuban troops and anti-castro mercenaries were to be trained.'

'Of those lands, located in the western part of Retalhuleu, they left toward Port Heads, Nicaragua, from which the would be failure Bay of Pigs invasion was launched...’.

Roberto Alejos Arzú is an uncle of Alvaro Arzú Wilson, who in the 90s was president of Guatemala and also a brother of Mercy Arzú, founder of the pro-life group Family of Americas.

Alejos was one of the characters who two decades ago was important in approaching the conservative government of Reagan, from the start of his campaign. Previously, Alejos had complained that 'The majority of the elements of the State Department probably were pro-communist who were using appeal to human rights as an argument to promote the socialization of these areas. We have arrived to the point of fearing the State Department more than the communist infiltration. Carter is either a completely incompetent president or is downright communistic'.

In April of 1980, Alejos sought sponsorship during a meeting with members of Young Americans for Freedom, the Foundation Heritage, Moral Majority, Young Republicans National Federation, the American Conservative Union and Conservative Digest. During the adminstration of Reagan, Alejos established good contacts with congressmen and officials of the State Department U.S. and even Reagan himself, who did not hesitate to support a government that was anti-communistic.

Alejos has been also one of the leaders of the Knights of Malta in Central America. In December 27, 1984, the Washington Post reported that according to Alejos, ambassador of the Knights of Malta in Honduras, the private foundation called AmeriCares together with the Knights of Malta channeled more than 14 million dollars of medical aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala in the two previous years, and that in Honduras a part of those funds was destined for the Indian miskitos who supported the contras.

In Honduras, AmeriCares began officially its operations in 1985, being diplomatically connected to, and supported by the Knights of Malta. 'As in the Central American remainder, in Honduras AmeriCares worked very close with the Knights of Malta. They support military civic actions and counterrevolutionary programs, but also provide supplies to the Department of Health for clinics in the country'.

In Guatemala a part of the funds mentioned was distributed among the armed forces, like part of a program of relocation by means of 'model villages'. According to Alejos, ‘..... the Guatemalan army sends medicines of AmeriCares to the people of the model villages along the border with Mexico'.

Besides, the Association of the Air Command, of Fort Walton Beach, said to have used installations of the Knights of Malta in El Salvador. The retired general H. C. Aderholt, leader of the group of 1500 members affirmed that the command sent food and medicines to the Knights and that jointly 'we gave good support to the Salvadorian air command'. According to Aderholt, the association mentioned has distributed to El Salvador 4,5 million in food and well-proportioned medicines by the Christian Broadcasting Network and World Medical Relief. In turn, Russ Bellant, in the Detroit Metro Times of October 9, 1985, stated that Aderholt claimed that the Christian Broadcasting Network of Pat Robertson had given the Knights of Malta 2 million dollars for operations in Central America.

The American magnate J. Peter Grace, of the Knights of Malta, has said that he initiated the medical shipments to Central America in 1983 based on the notion that AmeriCares and the Knights worked together in the region. Grace presided the American Institute for Free Work Development (AIFLD), an organization linked to the CIA, and was also member of the American Committee of Liberation of the Bolshevism, a group also linked to the CIA, and that helped ex-officials of the Nazi intelligence to escape from the pursuit.

At the beginning of the 90s, Marvin Bush, son of the president Bush sr, accompanied the second shipment of AmeriCares to Nicaragua. The cargo was received by Roberto Alejos, in the capacity of representative of the Knights of Malta. Prescott Bush jr, uncle of the current president Bush, is member of the Knights of Malta, and of the executive counsel of AmeriCares. As it has been mentioned, member of the Knights of Malta William Simon belonged also to the national counsel of Prodemca, an organization that along with the Knights has been involved in the support for the contras and to other groups of anti-sandinista opposition in Nicaragua.

It suits to add that in Mexico, after the earthquake of 1985, AmeriCares did an air shipment of more than 1.5 million in medical equipment. As in other countries, its work has been supported by the Knights of Malta, whose president has been José Muddy Chávez, a character who at the end of the 90s, like the president of the Red Cross, was publicly opposed to the distribution and use of condoms. The organization SHARE distributed in Mexico vaccines of Americares that had been rejected in Philippines, as 'unnecessary and potentially dangerous'.

The delegation led by Generals Graham and Singlaub to Guatemala in 1979 was hosted by plantation owner Roberto Alejos, the Guatemalan codirector of the Knights of Malta, an ultraconservative lay Catholic organization. Alejos also allowed the CIA to use his farm to train brigadistas for the Bay of Pigs invasion. (41)

The Knights of Malta is closely allied with Covenant House's
Central American activities. AmeriCares consigns its shipments to
the Knights and the Knights deliver it to Covenant House operations.

Roberto Alejos, the leading figure of the Knights of Malta in
Guatemala and the group's ambassador to Honduras
, has played an
important role in Covenant House's development in Central America.
He was considered to be the link to numerous donations, many of
them anonymous, that Covenant House received from moneyed people
around Central America.(12) Alejos, linked to William Simon and
J. Peter Grace through the Knights, has a history of anticommunist
activities and once ran as a rightwing candidate for president of
He was described by author Jean-Marie Simon as "a thug
in a business suit,"
and has been connected with the CIA and the
contra aid network. When queried about Alejos connection with
Covenant House, Jean-Marie Simon said, "its like having Idi Amin
on the board of Amnesty International."

The 'Chosen Ones' Are Coming
Added: Mar 16th, 2008 10:22 AM

Sue Bradley
March, 2008

"And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst." Luke 23:45

"The secret power of lawlessness is already at work" II Thess. 2:7

There have been an extraordinary number of events in recent weeks which have placed the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, in the media spotlight. In Rome, on March 11 2008, Fra' Matthew Festing, 58, an Englishman, became the 79th Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, elected by the Council Complete of State (the Order’s electoral body). He succeeds Fra’ Andrew Bertie, 78th Grand Master (1988-2008), who died on 7 February.

Belgium, the small country between France and the Netherlands, is also the home of the European Union, a supercomputer known as 'the Beast,' and a lesser known but very elite mind control operation called the Janus Group which is based within NATO headquarters there.

In earlier times, Nimrod was Eannus, the god with two faces, and later became known to the Romans as Janus. Is it significant that within the conspiratorial fringe, William F. Buckley was code named "Janus?" Or is it that William F. Buckley was also a very prominent member of the Knights of Malta?

Is it possible that others of the global elite are sending cryptic signals to signal a transition? What else is known about the Knights of Malta?

As one of the oldest institutions of Western "Christian" civilization, the 12,500 laity of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, the order claims political neutrality which allows for impartial mediation between other recognized political states. The Sovereign Order of Malta is a sovereign subject of international law. The Order - which is based in Rome, in Via Condotti - has its own government, an independent magistracy, bilateral diplomatic relations with 100 countries and is granted the status of Permanent Observer in many international organizations, such as the United Nations.

In the more recent past, the Military Hospitaller Order of St John of Jerusalem and protectorate of the Vatican has openly acknowledged the issuing passports for ‘members’ linked to the Nazi "Rat Lines," as an escape route for hundreds of high ranking Third Reich members to facilitate relocation and residency in South and Central America as well as the United States and Canada.

Jordanian MP Jamal Muhammad Abidat, from an editorial in the United Arab Emirates daily AL-BAYAN entitled "The Knights of Malta - more than a conspiracy," writes,

"…when the Knights of Malta began their operations as a Christian militia whose mission it was to defend the land conquered by the Crusaders. These memories return violently to mind with the discovery of links between the so-called security firms in Iraq such as Blackwater have historic links with the Order of Malta. You cannot exaggerate it. The Order of Malta is a hidden government or the most mysterious government in the world."

Curiously, a view from above the Vatican exposes a somewhat unexpected but bizarre similarity: the former dungeon of the Vatican, Castel de St. d'Angelo, seldom viewed from overhead bears an eerily striking resemblance to the Pentagon in Washington DC. (for larger image, visit: http://i23.tinypic.com/2qw2yo4.jpg )

Admission was formerly permitted to members of the Church of Rome, but perhaps ecumenism has permitted non-Catholics the privilege of membership. The names of other SMOM are impressive, recognizable and growing:

Other ‘notable’ members of SMOM include:

Reinhard Gehlen (Nazi war criminal)
Heinrich Himmler (Nazi war criminal)
Kurt Waldheim (Nazi war criminal)
Franz von Papen (Hitler enabler)
Fritz Thyssen (Hitler’s financier)
Rupert Murdoch
Tony Blair
Pat Buchanan
William F. Buckley, Jr.
Precott Bush, Jr.
Edward Egan (Archbishop NY)
Licio Gelli
Ted Kennedy
David Rockefeller
Phyllis Schlafly (Dame)
J. Edgar Hoover
Joseph Kennedy
Henry Luce
Thomas ‘Tip’ O’Neill
Ronald E. Reagan
Giscard d’Estaing
Allen Dulles
Avery Dulles
Frank C Carlucci
Nelson Mandela
Rick Santorum
Juan Carlos (King of Spain and Jerusalem)
Oliver North
George H.W Bush
Augusto Pinochet
William Randolph Hearst
Francis L. Kellogg

Newer players in this deadly and secretive sodality are finding various levels of concealment and disguise.

In 2005, Pentagon Inspector General Joseph Edward Schmitz quit in to work for BlackwaterUSA. Schmitz is a member of Opus Dei and Knights of Malta, and at least $2 trillion went "missing" from the Pentagon during his watch.

Blackwater is more than just a "private army", much more than just another capitalist war-profiteering business operation. It is an army operating outside all laws, outside and above the US Constitution and yet is controlled by people within and outside our government whose allegiance is primarily to the foreign Vatican state. In other words, Blackwater is a religious army serving the Pope in Rome through the Order of Malta, which is itself considered under international law, as a sovereign entity with special diplomatic powers and privileges. Like Blackwater, the Order of Malta is "untouchable" because it is at the heart of the elite aristocracy.

The Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) is ideologically and historically allied with international Bavarian Illuminism, ultimately sharing the same goal of bloodline supremacy, whether their members accept this or not. The grades and levels of The Knight of Malta and The Knight Templar are the Rosicrucian upper-degrees of Freemasonry, and clearly reveal their heritage.

Within a decade, BlackwaterUSA has become BlackwaterWorld and the largest and most powerful mercenary army in the world. Who or WHAT is behind this organization and where can it be leading?

In October, 2007, NEWSWEEK magazine featured an exclusive interview with Erik Prince, "The Man Behind Blackwater."

Born in Holland, Michigan of Dutch heritage, Erik Prince appears to have an interest in all things Prussian. In LaFayette Park in Washington DC a statue of \Revolutionary War figure General Wilhelm von Steuben. With a history of Jesuit instruction, it was to training and discipline that General von Steuben credits his success.

It is to this same intensity and purity of purpose that Prince ascribes and feels called to carry out. In 1995, upon the death of Prince’s father Ed, Gary Bauer wrote, "Ed Prince was not an empire builder. He was a Kingdom Builder."

According to NEWSWEEK, Prince’s "own story suggests a restless search for higher forces and powers, for a kind of martial and religious purity that is not sullied or bogged down by bureaucrats and nosy reporters.

"In his occasional public utterances at security conferences, his vision emerges. ‘Everybody carries guns, just like Jeremiah rebuilding the Temple in Israel, a sword in one hand, a trowel in the other.’ Prince, a weapons expert and adventure seeker since he outgrew playing with lead soldiers as a boy, has seen the promised land, and it is righteous and well armed."

Were it not for the continuing and expanding controversies, the Blackwater organization’s ethics and moralities would be noble, but in a global climate of unparalled weapony improvement and physical enhancements with no long range studies for comparables and only cybrarian hypotheticals, it is enormously seductive to "take a rsk to get an edge."

At its official Website, the US Department of State individually identifies private contractors. In a brief statement before their listing is an enigmatic and rather ambiguous disclaimer: "The U.S. government assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons or firms whose names appear on the list."

As in Rome, history records that the use of mercenaries signals the end of a country’s sovereignty with a military operating outside the law and fully capable of silencing any and all who are considered to be traitors. When reduced to the use of mercenaries, the national life-span is typically five to ten years. At the demise of the Roman Empire only one soldier in ten was a citizen of the Empire: the other nine were mercenaries.

Naomi Wolf, the author of THE END OF AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT speaks of the ten "blueprint checks" which precede "the closing down" of a democracy:

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy

2. Create a gulag

3. Develop a thug caste

4. Set up an internal surveillance system

5. Harass citizens' groups

6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release

7. Target key individuals

8. Control the press

9. Dissent equals treason

10. Suspend the rule of law

Though disturbing in implication, the physical and political parallels of Pinochet’s Chile and fascist Germany are compelling.

Early in 2003, COUNTERPUNCH MAGAZINE published an article by Chris Floyd, ‘Monsters, Inc.’ "The Pentagon Plan to Create Mutant "Super-Soldiers."

The article described the federal government’s "war fighter enhancement" programs which involve injections with hormonal, neurological and genetic concoctions with the objective of lowering the need for sleep, the fear of death and reluctance to kill fellow human beings while heightening other sensory perception.

Described as "very aggressive and wide open," the US Special Operations Command envisions the creation of "iron bodied and iron willed personnel" resistant to mental and physiological effects of stress and sleep deprivation and unquestioningly compliant and without remorse, capable of superhuman feats and psionic abilities.

Watchmen and whistleblowers are few, even with the scientifically and Biblically knowledgeable. Years of research, investigation, admonition and warning are finally beginning to accrue serious consideration, yet author and publisher Tom Horn sees greater obstacles:

"Of course one might argue that this could be a gradual process. This is a tragic assumption. In fact, the process will be rapid, undertaken with surprise attacks employing plagues and hi-tech, microscopic nanomachines designed to bring about the demise of its host. This won’t be a process in which one race replaces another, slowly and peacefully, even if that is the misrepresentation that most people receive. It will be violent, bloody conflict.

What is planned is a quick change, a coup d’etat where mankind is there one day, and in mass graves the next. The goal is to replace mankind."

The period of the 1960’s brought an acceptance of ‘all things’ to a society already yielding to the climate of unholy spirituality, carnality and loss of generational values.

The military side of western civilization had been learning and developing real and powerful methods of meta-warfare though decades of infiltration: via remote viewing, out of body experiences and other strongly occultic tools.

At the forefront of combat in this ‘war of the worlds’ is Russ Dizdar, pastor, author and deliverance minister and proficiently recognized in areas where few muster the courage to venture: the dark domains of the demonic.

"I used to call them "Undergrounders" until a number of them told me that the primary designation on the inside is that they are "The Chosen Ones," and the idea of chosen suggests that they are chosen by Satan, that they are his "elect."

In the process of tracing the history of left hand path splintering to produce multiple personality disorders via satanic ritual abuse and personality altering via Luciferian initiation, Pastor Dizdar’s investigating goes beyond Sumer to the practices of the ancients and "stories" of "mythologies" and the transdimensional mingling of bloodlines, both human and angelic. While investigations in these areas are not commonly discussed, they are not nearly as deviant as one might believe.

"Most don’t know that it is predicted that an army will surface such as the world has never seen. An army whose leaders and soldiers will be the most fierce and evil ever. Many of them shall be birthed in satanic powers and demonstrate supernatural strength and abilities: the Satanic Super Soldiers.

"Once we’ve gotten down to assassination personalities and priestess personalities, Luciferian loyal, coven loyal, militaristc loyal, we have found the sub personality which truthfully believes that they are part of this unholy agenda and will be used is some capacity, that speaks German, is Nazi loyal, that understands the concept of a Fourth Reich, a coming fuhrer and believes they are the troops and will be used in some capacity in the Black Awakening.

"Others will be recruited and made to receive ‘energy’ (demonitization) to become the soldiers of a new world order.

"Satanic rituals have, are and will be done to release supernatural dark powers on political leaders, military leaders and upon millions of soldiers. The coming new spiritual order out of a bloody chaos will be accomplished by the present and released hell hot dark spirits who have been waiting."

Pastor Dizdar continues, "If we can splice animal genetics into the soldier for enhancement then we must be able to splice, inject, or fuse dark power into the will or genetics of our soldiers. The coming super soldiers (now sleepers) will have mental conditioning (programming), enhanced DNA (transgenics) and infused super (demonic) powers.

"It is wondered how they will be stopped. The Chosen Ones have clearly told me that they will be virtually unstoppable. They will only kill, steal and destroy their targets, smart weapons?" "That ‘power’ is something that mil-scientists want to channel for use.

In the 40’s GH Estabrooks wrote of the weaponization of hypnosis and its use to create soldiers and spies. The 50's became the age of the psyops warriors. Since the 60’s and 70’s, the DoD has spent millions in the development of "psychic warriors" and remote viewers."

According to Pastor Dizdar most churches are perilously deficient in their abilities to handle high level spiritual encounters. Multiple demons increase the host’s powers and are found to amplify, diversify and intensify these dark spirits.

The belief that there will be a progressive spiritual evolution and subtle incrementalism of dark doctrine through the use of secret knowledge has been growing in all areas of the globe.

Satanically christened Chosen Ones, an appropriate rubric counterpart for cases of Satanic ritual abuse and multiple personality disorders including those which took pace under the US government’s MK Ultra and Montauk, Monarch programming as well as those who have been placed strategically around the world.

Pastor Dizdar feels that we are at a time which has surpassed a distinguishing feature of the pre Nazi Germany when there was an enormous proliferation of interest in the occult took place. The relevance to our time period is both obvious and ominous: through the captive audience of the electronic web, the preoccupation with all things occult is unprecedented and has already produced an even greater accessibility, privacy and engagement.

Prepared by socio-meta programmers to respond by creating assassinations, coups, school incidents by single or short term series’ of triggers designed to create the anarchy necessary to undermine entire world systems of governments which will be replaced with the Reich’s Ubermensch, "Superman," known to the world as the Antichrist.

Knowledge is power and an intense understanding of the goals and methodologies which have been prepared by a supernatural sinister science for global rule which will ascend from the ashes of collapsed societies…but worse, what will take place after these events?

The protracted preparation for this Luciferian event is complete. Today the forging of the needed super soldiers is in full swing, anticipating the lifting of the Sovereign Hand.

These forces of darkness will manifest in horrendous ways - until they encounter the higher power, the authority Jesus Christ. It would be reckless and spiritually and physically deadly to confront such evil in without a stronger weapon.

This is not a drill. This is not a prank. This will be Satan’s finest display before and until the end of battles, Armageddon.

"The weaponization of the satanic powers is not a bizarre movie idea. Its something that military leaders are convinced they will need. Mil-science has been and is invaded, someone is looking over their shoulders and it is not human. The dark powers have and are supervising the development of a technology that will ensure the control of the mind along with the supernatural enhancement of fierce soldiers.

"Thus there has been and is ongoing a weaponization of demonic ideology and power for the alteration of the human will and ability. Could this be the power of the blood of Nephilim? The weaponizaton of Nephilim blood. Did they find the Ayran pure blood? The blood with the genetics of the demon gods?"

It is imperative that men and women recognize and become familiar with this imminent eventuality – and prepare.

It is Tom Horn’s contention that "There will be no time for benignly permitting the "inferior race" to die quietly. That would take too long. The goal is the "final solution." A quick death for those who are in the way of the new superior race. The goal is the extinction of the human race."

The coming weeks, months and years do indeed appear to be a time of formidable physical, emotional and spiritual challenge.

And just what if Tom Horn is right? He was before.

The mingled seed was never redeemed. The future actually happened long ago. Genesis 3:5

"Here stands the’New Man.’

His conception of reality is a dance of electronic images fired into his forebrain

The real war is a war on consciousness.

It is almost a question of who is not mind controlled.

Who is putting these sleepers out there planning assassinations:

Who are behind Sirhan Sirhan, all the way up to Son of Sam, the list is endless.

Luciferian satanic networks that work with mind control on all its levels all of them tying into the military establishment.

"They made me do it" "The voices made me do it" "Hey Doc, I’m possessed."

Or is there another unseen hand that knows absolutely what consciousness is?...

...All that you see out there in the world today especially in the media and most in the tinkering around in occult subjects is a form of sorcery.

The whole new man concept or also what some call the posthuman world.

Are we hurtling towards a kind of apocalypse because the controllers are actually going to move in themselves to another phase of life: one that involves the organic computer?...

...Change is going t happen whether you like it or not…."

James Gobbo

Sir James Augustine Gobbo, AC CVO QC (b. 22 March 1931, Melbourne, Victoria) was an Australian jurist and was the 25th Governor of Victoria.


James Gobbo was born to Italian parents, who returned to Italy briefly before returning to live permanently in Australia in 1938.

Gobbo attended Xavier College before studying law at the University of Melbourne during which time he lived at Newman College. In 1951 he was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship, with which he attained a Master of Arts degree at Oxford University.

Gobbo married former librarian Shirley Lewis in 1957, and has five children. His son James Gobbo, Jr. was the Liberal candidate for the district of Bentleigh in the 2006 Victorian legislative election.

Judicial career

After many years as a barrister and later as a Queen's Counsel, Gobbo was appointed as a judge of the Supreme Court of Victoria, which is the highest ranking court in the Australian State of Victoria. He served from 18 July 1978 until he retired from the bench on 28 February 1994.

Political career

Gobbo served as Lieutenant-Governor of Victoria from 1995 until he was appointed Governor of Victoria in 1997 by the government of Premier Jeff Kennett. He was the first Australian state governor of Italian descent.

In 2000 the new Premier Steve Bracks announced that Gobbo's successor would be John Landy, who would take up his post in January 2001. Gobbo immediately made it known that he had had an understanding with Kennett for an extension of his term beyond 2000, and expressed deep disappointment that this was not now to occur.

After leaving office, Gobbo took up the position of Commissioner for Italy for the Victorian Government until June 2006 and has since continued on various boards and councils.

As of 2006, he is the Chair of the Council of the National Library of Australia and the Council of the Order of Australia and Chair of the Australian Multicultural Foundation.


Gobbo was knighted in 1982 and became a Companion of the Order of Australia in 1993. He is also a Knight of Malta (see [1]).

The Governor of Victoria, Sir James Gobbo, officially accepted an invitation to become the new patron of Monash University in Prato at a reception at the Monash city offices last week.

Sir James said he had followed the establishment of the Prato centre with great interest, as Monash had become the first Australian university to have a physical presence in Italy.

"It's so important for Australian universities that aspire to achieve the very best in international standards to form valuable international linkages," he said.

"There's no more tangible and effective way to make such linkages work than to be physically present and physically related to the people."

Prato centre director Professor Bill Kent welcomed Sir James, saying there could be no better or distinguished patron.

"He is one of the founding fathers of Australian multiculturalism and a tireless worker for the Italo-Australian community, and is also a champion of closer ties between the two countries," he said.

The reception was attended by about 80 people, including Monash chancellor Mr Jerry Ellis and representatives from the Italian community.

Sir Adrian James Andrew Denis FitzGerald - Conservative UK Politician; Editor of the Monday World (o/t Conservative Monday Club); Honorary Alderman o/t Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea; 24th Knight of Kerry

Sir Adrian is the last in a long line of the Knights of Kerry. He gives a chronological description of the life of each Knight, speaking from the last estate of the Kerry Knights, on Valentia Island.

Adrian FitzGerald

Sir Adrian James Andrew Denis FitzGerald, 6th Baronet, 24th Knight of Kerry (b. 24 June 1940) is a former Conservative politician in the UK.


He was educated at Harrow and was editor of the Monday World (a periodical of the Conservative Monday Club) from 1967 to 1974. He has also served as a Councillor of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London from 1974 until his retirement in 2002,[1] and as Mayor for 1984–85.

Other interests

Sir Adrian has also served as Chairman of Anglo-Polish Society for 1989–92, and is currently its President. He is vice Chairman of the London Chapter of the Irish Georgian Society and a Patron of the Save Sloane Square campaign[2] and the anti-euthenasia organisation Alert.[3] Sir Adrian is a Knight of Malta, he is currently vice President of the Irish Association of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

He currently spends his time between his homes in London and Cappoquin, County Waterford, Republic of Ireland.

Sir Adrian FitzGerald dinner

Sir Adrian FitzGerald, Bart., 24th Knight of Kerry, kindly addressed the League over dinner on the Conservative Monday Club and the history of the Knights of Kerry.

Sir Adrian began by telling of how the Monday Club, of which he was a founder-member, came into being as a result of the dissatisfaction being experienced with the policies of the Tory Party as it was in the 1960s. He outlined the Club's rise from half-a-dozen members to an influential group with many MPs as members. Sir Adrian, during this period, was editor of the Club's journal, Monday World which sought to introduce philosophical thought into right-wing politics. The (somewhat unexpected) radical policies of Margaret Thatcher, however, led to a decline in the influence of the Club by the 1970s. Sir Adrian quoted Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson, who described the Club as "the guardian of the Tory conscience."

Sir Adrian then outlined the history of the Knights of Kerry, the Green Knight, one of only two extant hereditary knighthoods in the United Kingdom. Some of the theories as to how these knighthoods came into existence were discussed, although it is not, as yet, definitive as to why they did and further research in this area is needed.

We are very grateful to Sir Adrian for taking the time to come up to Durham and for his speaking to us. His informative talk was most well received.

(ii) Question by Councillor Coleman

Will the Chair join me in congratulating Sir Adrian Fitzgerald, Bt., member of the London Fire and Civil Defence Authority from 1985 - 2000 and Leader of the Conservative Group of that Authority from 1994 -2000, on being admitted as an Honorary Alderman of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, in recognition of his service as a Councillor of the Royal Borough from 1974 to 2002, including being Mayor, and in doing so note Sir Adrian's distinguished public service in London and particularly the contribution he has made in the area of fire?

Charles I of Austria - Last Emperor of Austria; Last King of Hungary; Last Monarch of the Habsburg Dynasty; Generalfeldmarschall in the Austro-Hungarian Army

Blessed Charles I (Karl Franz Josef Ludwig Hubert Georg Maria von Habsburg-Lothringen) (17 August 1887 – 1 April 1922) (Hungarian: IV. Károly (Károly Ferenc József)) was (among other titles) the last Emperor of Austria, the last King of Hungary, and the last monarch of the Habsburg dynasty. He reigned as Charles I as Emperor of Austria and Charles IV as King of Hungary from 1916 until 1918, when he "renounced participation" in state affairs, but did not abdicate. He spent the remaining years of his life attempting to restore the monarchy until his death in 1922.


Early life

Charles was born on August 17, 1887, in the Castle of Persenbeug in Lower Austria. He was the son of Archduke Otto Franz of Austria (1865–1906) and Princess Maria Josepha of Saxony (1867–1944); he was also a nephew of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria-Este. As a child, Charles was given a strict Catholic education. In 1911, Charles married Princess Zita of Parma.

Charles became heir-presumptive with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, his uncle, in Sarajevo in 1914, the event which precipitated World War I. Charles' reign began in 1916, when his grand-uncle, Francis Joseph I died. Charles also became a Generalfeldmarschall in the Austro-Hungarian Army.


On 2 December 1916, he took over the title of Supreme Commander to a whole army from Archduke Frederick. In 1917, Charles secretly entered into peace negotiations with France. Although his foreign minister, Ottokar Czernin, was only interested in negotiating a general peace which would include Germany as well, Charles himself, in negotiations with the French with his brother-in-law, Prince Sixtus of Bourbon-Parma, an officer in the Belgian army, as intermediary, went much further in suggesting his willingness to make a separate peace. When news of the overture leaked in April 1918, Charles denied involvement until the French prime minister Georges Clemenceau published letters signed by him. This led to Czernin's resignation, forcing Austria-Hungary into an even more dependent position with respect to its seemingly wronged German ally.

The Austro-Hungarian Empire was wracked by inner turmoil in the final years of the war, with much tension between ethnic groups. As part of his Fourteen Points, US President Woodrow Wilson demanded that the Empire allow for autonomy and self-determination of its peoples. In response, Charles agreed to reconvene the Imperial parliament and allow for the creation of a confederation with each national group exercising self-governance. However, the reforms quickly spiraled out of control, as the nationalities were now determined to pull away from Vienna at the earliest possible moment. Foreign Minister Baron Istvan Burián asked for an armistice based on the Fourteen Points on October 14, and two days later Charles issued a proclamation transforming Austria into a federal union. However, Secretary of State Robert Lansing replied four days later that the Allies were now committed to the causes of the Czechs, Slovaks and South Slavs (in fact, a Czechoslovak provisional government had joined the Allies on October 14). Therefore, autonomy for the nationalities was no longer enough.

The Lansing note effectively ended any efforts to keep the Empire together. One by one, the nationalities proclaimed their independence, and Charles' political future became uncertain. On October 31, Hungary officially ended the personal union between Austria and Hungary, effectively ending the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nothing remained of Charles' realm except the Danubian and Alpine provinces, and he was challenged even there by the German Austrian state council. His last prime minister, Heinrich Lammasch, advised him that it was fruitless to stay on.

On November 11--the same day as the armistice ending the war--Charles issued a carefully worded proclamation in which he recognized the Austrian people's right to determine the form of the state and "relinquish(ed) every participation in the administration of the State." He also released his officials from their oath of loyalty to him. On November 13, he issued a similar proclamation for Hungary. Although it has widely been cited as an "abdication," that word was never mentioned in either proclamation. [1].

Charles held out hope that he would be returned to the throne of an independent Austria. Instead, the day after he issued his proclamation, German Austria proclaimed itself an independent republic. He then fled to Switzerland, escorted by Edward Lisle Strutt, and continued to pursue regaining power from exile. In 1919, the Austrian parliament passed a law which banished the Habsburgs from Austrian territory unless they renounced all intentions of reclaiming the throne and accepted the status of ordinary citizens.

Encouraged by Hungarian nationalists, Charles sought twice in 1921 to reclaim the throne of Hungary, but failed due to various factors including the lack of support of the Hungarian Regent Miklós Horthy. Horthy's failure to support Charles' restoration attempts is often described as "treasonous" by monarchists. Critics suggest that Horthy's actions were more firmly grounded in political reality than the King of Hungary and his supporters. Charles left Hungary from the city of Baja forever, and later in 1921 the Hungarian parliament formally dethroned the Habsburgs. (For a more detailed account of Charles' attempts to regain the throne, see Charles IV of Hungary's conflict with Miklós Horthy.)

Blessed Charles of Austria was beatified on 3 October 2004 by His Holiness Pope John Paul II.

Member of the Order of Malta with the rank of Bailiff Grand Cross of Honour and Devotion, the emperor Charles of Habsburg was a descendant of the emperor Charles V who in 1530 had granted the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino in sovereign fief to the Order of St. John of Jerusalem.
Charles of Austria was born August 17, 1887, in the Castle of Persenbeug in the region of Lower Austria. His parents were the Archduke Otto and Princess Maria Josephine of Saxony, daughter of the last King of Saxony. Emperor Francis Joseph I was Charles' Great Uncle.

Charles was given an expressly Catholic education and the prayers of a group of persons accompanied him from childhood, since a stigmatic nun prophesied that he would undergo great suffering and attacks would be made against him. That is how the “League of prayer of the Emperor Charles for the peace of the peoples” originated after his death. In 1963 it became a prayer community ecclesiastically recognized.

A deep devotion to the Holy Eucharist and to the Sacred Heart of Jesus began to grow in Charles. He turned to prayer before making any important decisions.

On the 21st of October, 1911, he married Princess Zita of Bourbon and Parma. The couple was blessed with eight children during the ten years of their happy and exemplary married life. Charles still declared to Zita on his deathbed: “I'll love you forever.”

Charles became heir to the throne of the Austro‑Hungarian Empire on June 28, 1914, following the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand.

World War I was underway and with the death of the Emperor Francis Joseph, on November 21, 1916 Charles became Emperor of Austria. On December 30th he was crowned apostolic King of Hungary.

Charles envisaged this office also as a way to follow Christ: in the love and care of the peoples entrusted to him, and in dedicating his life to them.

He placed the most sacred duty of a king - a commitment to peace - at the center of his preoccupations during the course of the terrible war. He was the only one among political leaders to support Benedict XV's peace efforts.

As far as domestic politics are concerned, despite the extremely difficult times he initiated wide and exemplary social legislation, inspired by social Christian teaching.

Thanks to his conduct, the transition to a new order at the end of the conflict was made possible without a civil war. He was however banished from his country.

The Pope feared the rise of communist power in central Europe, and expressed the wish that Charles re‑establish the authority of his government in Hungary.
But two attempts failed, since above all Charles wished to avoid the outbreak of a civil war.

Charles was exiled to the island of Madeira. Since he considered his duty as a mandate from God, he could not abdicate his office.

Reduced to poverty, he lived with his family in a very humid house. He then fell fatally ill and accepted this as a sacrifice for the peace and unity of his peoples.

Charles endured his suffering without complaining. He forgave all those who conspired against him and died April 1st 1922 with his eyes turned toward the Holy Sacrament. On his deathbed he repeated the motto of his life: “I strive always in all things to understand as clearly as possible and follow the will of God, and this in the most perfect way”.
