Deception XXXV: A Sample Injection
Tuesday, 9-14-10



"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when
EVERYTHING the American public believes is false."

Statement reportedly made by the late CIA Director William Casey at first staff meeting in 1981 [emphasis ours]

When I first read this startling quote, I understood that the United States government is not on our side (and has not been for a long time). I took note of the quote and then went on about life...but then thoughts of Mr. Casey came back up to the surface of my mind...

"I wonder if he was associated with Rome?"

We Americans did not arrive at the calamitous situation we are in today by accident. There have been a series of agents injected into our society at all levels with the intent of destroying it and taking away our freedom. It appears that Mr. Casey may have been one such agent. He is mentioned in Eric J. Phelp's Vatican Assassins These injections have occurred over a time period of many years beginning with the Congress of Vienna in 1815 where the pope, his pestilent Jesuits, and certain European leaders determined to overthrow the United States of America and popular government.

***WILLIAM CASEY, ONE OF ROME'S SONS***

I did an internet search on Casey and this is what I found--

William Joseph Casey (March 13, 1913 - May 6, 1987) was the Director of Central Intelligence from 1981 to 1987. In this capacity he oversaw the entire United States Intelligence Community and personally directed the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

...A native of Queens, New York, Casey graduated from Fordham University in 1934 and earned a law degree from St. John's University School of Law in 1937.

Information on Fordham University from the internet--

Fordham University is a private university[3] in the United States, with three campuses located in and around New York City. It was founded by the Roman Catholic Diocese of New York in 1841 as St. John's College, placed in the care of the Society of Jesus shortly thereafter, and has since become an independent institution under a lay Board of Trustees which describes the university as "in the Jesuit tradition."[4]

For those that do not know, the "Society of Jesus" is none other than the infamous Roman Catholic Jesuit order, believed by many to be the worst, bloodiest, filthiest, most corrupt, most vicious, most evil group in the world. (For them to call their group by the name of our precious Saviour is wickedness and blasphemy of the very highest degree, arising from the depths of Satan himself. This type of blasphemy is increasing as men wax worse and worse in this decaying and dying world.) And what is that "Jesuit tradition"? If you were to read the writings of those who know the Jesuits, they might say that that "Jesuit tradition" includes political intrigue, infiltration, murder, wars, dissimulation and more...who can name it all? You can read the Jesuit oath for yourself [Aside: The oath was entered into the United States Congressional Record (House Bill 1523, February 15, 1913, pp. 3215-3216) but it was not the subject of the Congressional Review.] Former Jesuit, Dr. Alberto Rivera, covered the Jesuit oath in the Alberto Series (http://www.chick.com/catalog/assortments/0931.asp) published by Chick Publications. Many have tried to tell the horrendous story of the Jesuits and their founder, Ignatius de Loyola. Many have tried to sound a warning about Rome's ways and those of her Jesuits--including King James VI & I, the king who specially commanded the translation of the Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible.

"...[I]n case the power and vertue of my aduertisements be not able effectually to worke, at least many millions of children and people yet unborne shall beare me witnesse, that in these dangers of the highest nature and straine, I have not bene defective: and that neither the subversions of States, nor the murthers of Kings, which may unhappily betide hereafter, shall have so free passage in the world for want of timely advertisement before."

King James VI & I, The Workes (1616)

When one reads King James' writings against the pope, his clergy, and his false doctrine, it is no wonder that such outrageous rumors have been spread about the king through the years. Jesuits tried to kill him in 1605 during the Gunpowder Plot. Gunpowder Plot conspirator Guy Fawkes is well known, but why are not his fellow conspirators Garnet and Owldcorne--Jesuits-- well known? And why is it that almost nobody knows about King James' phenomenal Workes? Why is it that almost nobody knows how his defense of the divine right of kings to rule their own kingdoms, without papal interference, caused many European rulers to be apprised of the usurping tendencies of Rome? Who owns the publishers that publish the books today? Who are the publishers and editors? Where did they learn their trade? Who teaches the authors that write books? Who propagandizes in newspaper articles, tv shows, college classrooms, and movies? Who decided that candy, fairy tales, and cartoons are good for children? Who infiltrates Protestant colleges and seminaries? Who runs many schools (and has been doing so for a long, long time)? Who teaches the history classes? Who writes the textbooks? Samuel Breese Morse discusses the Jesuits in his Imminent Dangers to the Free Institutions of the United States Through Foreign Immigration, and the Present State of the Naturalization Laws

Where is a place where Rome is not? Alberto Rivera said that one has to get Catholicism out of every aspect of their lives. Unsaved, I was in a three-ring circus with a life full of strange acts looking at tv, going to amusement parks, eating junk food, watching movies, etc. This year, 2010, I found myself coming to the conclusion that I was Jesuit-trained during my school years and beyond (I was born into this world as a victim, my parents were not saved and lived according to the course of this world so I was exposed to it), but praise the Lord, that was not the end of the story. I got saved by the blood of Jesus and the word of God and now I am trained by Jesus Christ and his word. The word, by God's almighty power and grace, brought me out of sin and deception.

***PEOPLE USED TO EXPOSE THE JESUITS NOT TOO LONG AGO***

Going back in time one finds that people spoke openly against the whore and her pestilent Jesuits. There is extensive literature devoted to revealing their intrigues and tactics. King James spoke of them extensively in his Workes (1616). Jesuits were involved in the Gunpowder Plot (the Roman Catholic attempt to blow up King James, his family, and Parliament in 1605). They sought to destroy the entire British government. The Jesuits are known for seeking the overthrow of established governments so that all people will submit to Rome. The Jesuits have been thrown out of many nations. Pope Clement XIV disbanded them. By God's grace, the Jesuits did not succeed in killing King James (James tells the miraculous story in, "A Discourse of the Maner of the Discoverie of the Powder-Treason" found in The Workes)--but Rome did not give up hope of gaining Great Britain. This article, however, is not about Great Britain. This article is about the United States of America. The Jesuits set their sights on America a long time ago (as we mentioned in the beginning of Deception XXIII). Charles Chiniquy, former priest, confirmed this in his book, Fifty Years in the Church of Rome published in 1889. In chapter 59, he provides a quote taken from a conference of Romish priests (emphases and notes in brackets [ ] are ours) when talking to one of their own--

"...We are determined, like you, to take possession of the United States and rule them; but we cannot do that without acting secretly and with the utmost wisdom. If our plans are known, they will surely be defeated...Silently and patiently, we must mass our Roman Catholics in the great cities of the United States [our note--mass immigration], remembering that the vote of a poor journeyman, though he be covered with rags, has as much weight in the scale of power as the millionaire Astor, and that if we have two votes against his one, he will become as powerless as an oyster [our note--take over America by the ballot box. Send the influx. Then in time, take advantage of racial prejudice and "community organize" the Negroes, and have them vote Democrat with the immigrants.]. Let us then multiply our votes; let us call our poor but faithful Irish Catholics from every corner of the world, and gather them into the very hearts of those proud citadels which the Yankees are so rapidly building under the names of Washington, New York, Boston, Chicago, Buffalo, Albany, Troy, Cincinnati, etc. Under the shadows of those great cities, the Americans consider themselves a giant and unconquerable race. They look upon the poor Irish Catholic people with supreme contempt, as only fit to dig their canals, sweep their streets and work in their kitchens. Let no one awake those sleeping lions, today. Let us pray God that they may sleep and dream their sweet dreams, a few years more. How sad will their awakening be, when with our out-numbering votes [they have not only used Irish Catholics--keep your mind open--Latin American Catholics are flooding into the United States by droves (note: I've been a friend to the Latino community for about 30 years and am in NO WAY prejudiced)], we will turn them for ever, from every position of honour, power and profit! What will those hypocritical and godless sons and daughters of the fanatical Pilgrim Fathers say, when not a single judge [our note--I read recently that not a single white male "Protestant" was on the U.S. Supreme Court bench], not a single teacher, not a single policeman, will be elected if he be not a devoted Irish Roman Catholic [or communist or activitst against the Bible]? What will those so-called giants think of their matchless shrewdness and ability, when not a single Senator or member of congress will be chosen, if he be not submitted to our holy father the Pope! What a sad figure those Protestant Yankees will cut when we will not only elect the President, but fill and command the armies [like get us into useless wars], man the navies and hold the keys of the public treasury [through the Federal Reserve?]? It will then be time for our faithful Irish people to give up their grog shops, in order to become the judges and governors* of the land. Then, our poor and humble mechanics will leave their damp ditches and muddy streets, to rule the cities in all their departments, for the stately mansion of Mayor to the more humble, though not less noble position of teacher.

"Then, yes! then, we will rule the United States, and lay them at the feet of the Vicar of Jesus Christ, that he may put an end to their godless system of education, and impious laws of liberty of conscience which are an insult to God and man!"

"...the American people must be very blind indeed, if they do not see that if they do nothing to prevent it, the day is very near when THE JESUITS WILL RULE THEIR COUNTRY, from the magnificent White House at Washington to the humblest civil and military department of this vast Republic..."

All of chapter 59 is worthy to be read.

*John F. Kennedy, an Irish Roman Catholic, became President of the United States in January 1961. It seems that he was assassinated (http://www.realityreviewed.com/JFK%20murder.htm) (this link is for the film, not the data on the page) because he cared too much about the welfare of the United States (Listen to him speak for yourself (5 min)--http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhZk8ronces&NR=1.

In the above excerpt, Romish priests said that popish persons would elect the President of the United States. They said that Jesuits would rule our country. Note the voice of exultation even back then, over 100 years ago. They knew that their plan would succeed--and look at us now. Papists were able to accomplish this overthrow by persistently and incessantly injecting their people--guided by Jesuitical principles--into our free, open, pleasure-loving, dumb-dog-preacher society. Nothing would stop them (if people had hearkened to the Bible, that would have stopped them, but everybody is not saved and the scriptures must be fulfilled).

  • They had lifetime after lifetime to accomplish their goals--when one of their agents dies, there are dozens to take his place; the plan rolls on.
  • They also had time, their organization has been in place for centuries under the cloak of religion and is established and empowered by Satan (we wrestle not against flesh and blood, the Mother rides the beast).
  • Kick them out of your country and they'll come back in disguised in any of a number of forms--immigrants, Protestants, laborers, businessmen, etc.
  • They had a front--religion--in a land that guarantees religion. They could work their wiles behind a pious smile, meanwhile undermining our country in secret societies, labor unions, and other not-so-secret societies.
"We came in like lambs and will rule like wolves.
We shall be expelled like dogs and return like eagles."

--Francesco Borgia (3rd Jesuit Superior General)

And now back to Jesuit-trained William Casey. From the internet--

He became the first Director of Central Intelligence to take a place at the White House table as a fully participating Cabinet member. He also became nationally known, recognizable by his stooped physique, his heavy glasses and his indistinct speech, Mr. Casey's earlier high posts were in the Nixon and Ford Administrations. He was a vigorous [can you sense the vandalism?] chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1971 to 1973, overseeing efforts toward improved regulation of the issuing and trading of stocks. He served as Under Secretary of State for economic affairs in 1973 and 1974 and as president and chairman of the Export-Import Bank in 1974 and 1975.

Under President Ford, in 1976, he also served on the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, a presidium of the United States intelligence community.

MILITARY AND POLITICAL ACTION

After Mr. Reagan took office in 1981 he sought, through Mr. Casey, to build up the C.I.A.'s ability to take military and political action outside the United States.

Casey was used in order to increase the CIA's power in international affairs thereby giving the CIA freedom to put our finest young men at risk in operations all over the world and to make our finest the armed guard of whatever evil pet project they may have. Not only that, the expenses of war can bring any nation to its knees. This is sickening, nauseating. Vandals have wormed their ways into all levels of our society, not just the CIA.

it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
Matthew 18:7

Another internet excerpt--

...As Director of Central Intelligence, Mr. Casey wielded wide-ranging authority over all United States intelligence-gathering agencies.

He became the first Director in 16 years to stay on from one Presidential term to the next. "I feel that I'm leading and I feel that I'm on top of all facets of the job," he said early in Mr. Reagan's second term. "I have a capacity to size up a situation once I get the facts, and to make decisions."

Yet furor and controversy repeatedly swirled around him...

Reagan on Mr. Casey (from the internet)--

A Tribute From Reagan

The President, in a tribute to Mr. Casey, said: "His nation and all those who love freedom honor today the name and memory of Bill Casey. In addition to crediting him with rebuilding America's intelligence capability, history will note the brilliance of his mind and strategic vision, his passionate commitment to the cause of freedom and his unhesitating willingness to make personal sacrifices for the sake of that cause and his country."

***ANTONIO GRAMSCI***

Gramsci, an Italian Marxist/Communist proposed political takeover by taking over the cultural life of society. He proposed infiltrating the institutions of society in order to (1) systematically propose new ideas and (2) systematically destroy old ones.

From the internet--

Gramsci counseled his side to begin a "long march through the institutions," by which he meant the capture of the cinema, theater, schools, universities, seminaries, newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and courts.

Gramsci proposed takeover by infiltrating every strata of society in order to destroy that society from within. Now--

  • imagine an army of individuals, dedicated to the overthrow of the United States government (and all popular government).
  • imagine this army of individuals being constantly replenished by the womb of a great whore. When one dies, he is instantly replaced. If one successfully defects, he is instantly replaced.
  • imagine this army being supracultural, supralingual, supraoccupational and highly secret. None of their victims know who they are. They can live anywhere and be from anywhere and can do any job. They are highly educated and masters of disguise. They come and smoothly merge into society with the express objective of overthrowing it while looking completely normal. They know that they will not see success in their lifetime but their foot is in the door and they will spend decades posed as an ordinary working man, a doctor, lawyer, professor, actor, etc. in order to fulfill the objectives they have received from their leader.
  • imagine this army being devoted to restoring the horrors of papal control--control and devastation greater and more complete than that found during the Dark Ages and Inquisition.
  • imagine this army studying witchcraft, black magic, and dark arts in order to obtain more power from the devil to deceive and accomplish their goals.
  • imagine this army having access to unlimited funds with which to fund any activity that they and the devil can come up with--including bribes to grease the palms of greedy politicians that they can buy off.
  • imagine this army's members receiving rewards for doing as much damage as possible and being cared for for life for sustained allegiance to the army.
  • imagine that this army possesses an outer sanctum and an inner corruption by which they are able to deceive whole nations through centuries of time.
  • imagine people who learn from this army receiving the spirit of this army and viewing life according to this army's deceptions found in books, television, movies, newspapers, etc.
  • imagine this army having unending resilience bouncing back into society every time they are kicked out. Always secretly working their way back in.
  • imagine this army having all the stealth and subtilty of the devil (the god of this world) to influence them and forward their ideas amongst an evil and perverse generation that does not hearken to the word thereby making that generation deceivable.
  • imagine this army utilizing today's technology to (1) track every person on the face of the earth; and, (2) kill.

From the internet--

The Jesuits function like the Papacy's secret world-wide police. They are very secretive and go to great lengths to keep their operations secret. They tell no one that they are Jesuits. To all outside appearances, they appear as normal people.

Samuel Breese Morse (1835)--

They are Jesuits. This society of men, after exerting their tyranny for upwards of two hundred years, at length became so formidable to the world, threatening the entire subversion of all social order, that even the Pope, whose devoted subjects they are, and must be, by the vow of their society, was compelled to dissolve them. [Pope Clement suppressed the Jesuit Order in 1773.]

They had not been suppressed, however, for fifty years, before the waning influence of Popery and Despotism required their useful labors, to resist the light of Democratic liberty, and the Pope [Pius VII] simultaneously with the formation of the Holy Alliance, [1815] revived the order of the Jesuits in all their power...

And do Americans need to be told what Jesuits are? ...they are a secret society, a sort of Masonic order, with super added features of revolting odiousness, and a thousand times more dangerous. They are not merely priests, or of one religious creed; they are merchants, and lawyers, and editors, and men of any profession, having no outward badge by which to be recognized; they are about in all your society. They can assume any character, that of angels of light, or ministers of darkness, to accomplish their one great end... They are all educated men, prepared and sworn to start at any moment, and in any direction, and for any service, commanded by the general of their order, bound to no family, community, or country, by the ordinary ties which bind men; and sold for life to the cause of the Roman Pontiff.

Now imagine how many positions in American society can be infiltrated and/or influenced by such a group. The number that could be listed is only limited by the imagination.

The whore has unlimited money--imagine if Jesuits were sent into every major city (and many small cities) with UNLIMITED MONEY TO INVEST IN ANYTHING THAT WILL FURTHER THEIR GOALS TO DISRUPT, CORRUPT, INTERRUPT, AND CHANGE THE EXISTING ORDER OF SOCIETY *AND* TO INSTITUTE JESUITICAL PRINCIPLES. This investing could come from practically any position, not just one officially called "investor." A filmmaker, entertainer, banker, the founder of an association who has received "a grant", etc. could be believed to have large amounts of cash to invest at his discretion--but this would actually be at the discretion of the Jesuit order based upon its objectives for the position.

    ***INCITING HATRED AGAINST THE TRUE CHURCH***

    As a--

  • child of the devil,
  • full of all subtilty and all mischief; and,
  • an enemy of all righteousness,

    Gramsci did not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord. He dedicated himself to this practice of destroying the place of the true church in society--and so have the other evil workers and false apostles that have followed in his footsteps. From the internet--

    Following Gramsci, Leftists know that Christianity remains the greatest obstacle to their total victory in the culture war. "The civilized world had been thoroughly saturated with Christianity for 2000 years," the Italian had written; something, he insisted, had to be done about that, and something has. The de-Christianizing of America and the West that he advocated is by now well underway. Inspired by the anti-Christian French Revolutionary calendar, publishers now insist upon the secular "B.C.E." (Before the "Common Era"-whatever that means) rather than "B.C." and "C.E." (the Common Era) rather than "A.D." Booksellers, popular magazines, and television treat with respect anti-Christian screeds such as The DaVinci Code [OUR NOTE: DON'T READ OR COUNTENANCE THESE BLASPHEMIES]. Courts, including the Supreme Court, declare most displays of the Decalogue to be "unconstitutional." The media [DON'T WATCH TELEVISION] repeat the mantra according to which Islam is "the religion of peace" (daily evidence to the contrary notwithstanding), find nothing to criticize in Buddhism, and remain "non-judgmental" concerning scientology and other cults, while at the same time they portray Christianity as the religion of "crusaders," bigots, and yahoos. Members of the Christian clergy have themselves joined in the relentless attack on orthodox Christianity [THE VISIBLE CHURCH, BY AND LARGE, HAS BEEN INFILTRATED OR ELSE IS IN DECEPTION-- DON'T LISTEN TO FALSE TEACHERS WHO ARE NOT AWARE OF THE TIMES BUT TRY TO BE TEACHERS.].

    ***JESUITS HATE THE WORD BECAUSE IT MAKETH MANIFEST WHAT THEY ARE***

    A quote from "The Jesuits in History", where the author quotes from a Jesuit meeting in Cheri, Italy in 1825,

    "Then the Bible, that serpent which with head erect and eyes flashing, threatens us (the Jesuits) with its venom while it trails along the ground, shall be changed into a rod as soon as we (the Jesuits) are able to seize it... for three centuries past this cruel asp has left us no repose. You well know with what folds it entwines us and with what fangs it gnaws us." (The Jesuits in History, Hector Macpherson, Ozark Book Publishers, 1997, Appendix 1). [emphases ours]

    THE WORD IS THEIR FOE AND OUR GREAT HELP! READ IT! THE AUTHORIZED VERSION.

    Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

    Rome has not seized* the word of God--heaven and earth shall pass away, BUT GOD'S WORD SHALL NEVER PASS AWAY, PRAISE THE LORD. The King James Bible is still in the world. What the Jesuits have been able to do is deceive people. Through false science (evolution, heliocentrism, etc.) people stopped believing the Bible record and started believing man. And through Johnny-come-lately modern unauthorized Bibles professed Christians say they have a Bible in the NIV, ESV, NASV, NKJV, etc.--but they don't. What they have is a corruption, a perversion of the Authorized Version of 1611 of the Bible.

    Culture War
    http://www.virginiainstitute.org/viewpoint/2005_09_5.html

    By Lee Congdon, Ph.D.

    To few Americans is Antonio Gramsci a familiar name. That is to be regretted because the work of the late Italian Marxist sheds much light on our time. It was he who first alerted fellow revolutionaries to the possibility that they would be able to complete the seizure of political power only after having achieved "cultural hegemony," or control of society's intellectual life by cultural means alone. His was an incremental, rather than an apocalyptic, revolution-the kind, that is, that we have been witnessing in the United States, and the Western world generally, since the 1960s. With this in mind, we ought not to treat the contemporary "culture war" lightly; the fate of what remains of civilized life may well be decided by its outcome.

    Few Leftists now adhere strictly to the original tenets of Marxism, or even to those of Marxist Revisionism, but, what is every bit as dangerous, they, like Gramsci, often succumb to a temptation that appears to be irresistible to those who dream utopian dreams: the passion for negation that often shades into nihilism. Utopianism and nihilism may seem to be antithetical, but they are not; both derive from the same source-undying hatred of the world as it is.

    Much of contemporary American culture has as its aim the trampling of moral and aesthetic standards that were once all but universally acknowledged, even when they were being violated. With few exceptions, contemporary movies, television shows, and popular music portray Judeo-Christian [our note: Judeo-Christian don't go together as "Judaism" is based on the blasphemous Talmud] morality as laughable at best and tyrannical at worst. To hear them tell it, America is in danger of becoming a theocracy governed by the "Religious Right." This despite the fact that the reigning culture is pagan through and through. It therefore assumes casual or impersonal sex to be the norm; feeds the public's increasing appetite for sexual perversion; depicts all fictional tyrannies as "right wing"; and pollutes the public square with scatological language. Only in rare cases are the purveyors of this "culture" challenged; and then, like the egregious Howard Stern, they pose as persecuted defenders of free speech and command even more money. Almost no one-Judge Robert Bork is an honorable exception-has had the courage to make the case for censorship, in part because of the widespread, but utterly mistaken, belief that there exists a "right of free expression" that is absolute.

    Another oft-repeated, but spurious, argument against censorship is that "you don't have to watch (or read or listen to) it." Others, however, do and even those who are not motivated thereby to commit crimes-think only of the Littleton, Colorado murderers-are coarsened by it and thus contribute to a further lowering of public taste, with what consequences for individual, often young, lives we have reason to know. Those who can endure a veritable torrent of linguistic vulgarity will find Tom Wolfe's recent novel, I am Charlotte Simmons, instructive in this regard.

    Following Gramsci, Leftists know that Christianity remains the greatest obstacle to their total victory in the culture war. "The civilized world had been thoroughly saturated with Christianity for 2000 years," the Italian had written; something, he insisted, had to be done about that, and something has. The de-Christianizing of America and the West that he advocated is by now well underway. Inspired by the anti-Christian French Revolutionary calendar, publishers now insist upon the secular "B.C.E." (Before the "Common Era"-whatever that means) rather than "B.C." and "C.E." (the Common Era) rather than "A.D." Booksellers, popular magazines, and television treat with respect anti-Christian screeds such as The DaVinci Code. Courts, including the Supreme Court, declare most displays of the Decalogue to be "unconstitutional." The media repeat the mantra according to which Islam is "the religion of peace" (daily evidence to the contrary notwithstanding), find nothing to criticize in Buddhism, and remain "non-judgmental" concerning scientology and other cults, while at the same time they portray Christianity as the religion of "crusaders," bigots, and yahoos. Members of the Christian clergy have themselves joined in the relentless attack on orthodox Christianity.

    Few thoughtful people deny that we are living in a time of decline. Judge Bork entitled one of his books Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline. Pat Buchanan recently published The Death of the West. The only question that remains is: Is the decline reversible? There are a few signs of hope, including the much commented upon challenge to the "mainstream" media presented by talk radio, bloggers, and Fox News. That is something, but not enough. Gramsci counseled his side to begin a "long march through the institutions," by which he meant the capture of the cinema, theater, schools, universities, seminaries, newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and courts. It is past time to begin a long march in a new and better direction.
