The Roman Catholic Church is a State.
BISHOP MANDELL CREIGHTON, LETTERS

When a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter announced in
his 1992 Time Magazine cover story that a conspiracy
binding President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II
into a secret, holy alliance had brought about the demise
communism, at least one reader saw through the hype.
Professor Carol A. Brown of the University of Massachusetts
fired off a letter to Times editors saying,
Last week I taught my students about the separation of
church and state. This week I learned that the Pope is running
U.S. foreign policy. No wonder our young people are cynical
about American ideals.
What Brown had learned from Carl Bernstein I had discovered
for myself over several years of private investigation: the papacy
really does run United States foreign policy, and always has.
Yes, Bernstein noted that the leading American players behind the
Reagan/Vatican conspiracy, to a man, were devout Roman
Catholics namely, William Casey (Director, CIA),
Richard Allen (National Security Advisor), Judge William Clark
(National Security Advisor), Alexander Haig (Secretary of State),
Vernon Walters (Ambassador-at-Large), and William Wilson
(Ambassador to the Vatican State).
But the reporter neglected to mention that the entire Senate
Foreign Relations committee was governed by Roman Catholics,
as well. Specifically, Senators Joseph Biden (Subcommittee on
Paul Sarbanes (International Economic Policy, Trade, Oceans,
Daniel P. Moynihan (Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs),
John Kerry (Terrorism, Narcotics, and International Communications)
Christopher Dodd (Western Hemi-sphere and Peace Corps Affairs).
Bernstein would have been wandering off-point to list the
Roman Catholic leaders of American domestic policy, such as
Senate majority leader George Mitchell and Speaker of the House
Tom Foley. In fact, when the holy alliance story hit the stands,
virtually no arena of federal legislative activity, according to The
1992 World Almanac of US Politics, that was not directly controlled
by a Roman Catholic senator or representative. The committees

Vatican Council IIs Constitution on the Church (1964) instructs
politicians to use their secular offices to advance the cause of
Roman Catholicism. Catholic laypersons, whoever they are, are
called upon to expend all their energy for the growth of the
Church and its continuous sanctification, and to make the
Church present and operative in those places and circumstances
where only through them can it become the salt of the earth (iv,
Vatican II further instructs all Catholics by their competence
in secular disciplines and by their activity [to] vigorously contribute
their effort so that
the goods of this world may be more
equitably distributed among all men, and may in their own way
be conducive to universal progress in human and Christian freedom
and [to] remedy the customs and conditions of the world,
if they are an inducement to sin, so that they all may be conformed
to the norms of justice and may favor the practice of virtue rather
than hinder it (iv, 36).
Vatican II affirms Catholic doctrine dating back to 1302, when
Pope Boniface VIII asserted that it is absolutely necessary for
salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman
Pontiff. This was the inspiration for the papacy to create the
United States of America that materialized in 1776, by a process
just as secret as the Reagan-Vatican production of Eastern Europe
in 1989. What? American government Roman Catholic
Consider: the land known today as the District of Columbia
bore the name Rome in 1663 property records; and the branch
of the Potomac River that bordered Rome on the south was
called Tiber. This information was reported in the 1902
of the Catholic Encyclopedias article on Daniel Carroll. The article,
specifically declaring itself of interest to Catholics in
1902 edition, was deleted from the New Catholic Encyclopedia
Other facts were reported in 1902 and deleted from 1967.
For example, when Congress met in Washington for the first time,
in November, 1800, the only two really comfortable and imposing
houses within the bounds of the city belonged to Roman
Catholics. One was Washingtons first mayor, Robert Brent. The
other was Brents brother-in-law, Notley Young, a Jesuit priest.
Daniel Carroll was a Roman Catholic congressman from Maryland
who signed two of Americas fundamental documents, the
Articles of Confederation and the United States Constitution.
Carroll was a direct descendant of the Calverts, a Catholic family
to whom King Charles I of England had granted Maryland as a feudal
barony. Carroll had received his education at St. Omers Jesuit
College in Flanders, where young English-speaking Catholics were
trained in a variety of guerrilla techniques for advancing the cause
of Roman Catholicism among hostile Protestants.
In 1790, President George Washington, a Protestant, appointed
Congressman Carroll to head a commission of three men to
select land for the federal city called for in the Constitution.
all places, the commission chose Rome, which at the time
of four farms, one of which belonged to
Daniel Carroll. It
was upon Carrolls farm that the new government chose to erect
its most important building, the Capitol.
The American Capitol abounds with clues of its Roman origins.
Freedom, the Roman goddess whose statue crowns the
dome, was created in Rome at the studio of American sculptor
Thomas Crawford. We find a whole pantheon of Roman deities in
the great fresco covering the domes interior rotunda: Persephone,
Ceres, Freedom, Vulcan, Mercury, even a deified George Washington.
These figures were the creation of Vatican artist Constantino
The fact that the national Statehouse evolved as a capitol
bespeaks Roman influence. No building can rightly be called a
capitol unless its a temple of Jupiter, the great father-god of
who ruled heaven with his thunderbolts and nourished the earth
with his fertilizing rains. If it was a capitolium, it belonged to Jupiter
and his priests.
Jupiters mascot was the eagle, which the founding fathers
made their mascot as well. A Roman eagle tops the governing idol
of the House of Representatives, a forty-six-inch sterling silverand-
ebony wand called a mace. The mace is the symbol of
authority in the House. When the Sergeant-at-arms displays it
before an unruly member of Congress, the mace restores order. Its
position at the rostrum tells whether the House is in committee
or in session.
Americas national motto Annuit Coeptis came
from a prayer
to Jupiter. It appears in Book IX of Virgils epic propaganda,
Aeneid, a poem commissioned just before the birth of Christ by
Caius Maecenas, the multi-billionaire power behind Augustus
Caesar. The poems objective was to fashion Rome into an imperial
monarchy for which its citizens would gladly sacrifice their lives.
Fascism may be an ugly word to many, but its stately emblem is
apparently offensive to no one. The emblem of fascism, a pair of
them, commands the wall above and behind the speakers rostrum
in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. Theyre called
fasces, and I can think of no reason for them to be there
to declare the fascistic nature of American republican democracy.
A fasces is a Roman device. Actually, it originated
with the ancient Etruscans, from whom the earliest Romans
derived their religious jurisprudence nearly three thousand
years ago. Its an axe-head whose handle is a
bundle of rods tightly strapped together by
a red sinew. It symbolizes the ordering of
priestly functions into a single infallible
sovereign, an autocrat who could require life
and limb of his subjects. If the fasces is
entwined with laurel, like the pair on the House wall, it signifies
Caesarean military power. The Romans called this infallible sovereign
Pontifex Maximus, Supreme Bridgebuilder.
No Roman was called Pontifex Maximus until the title was given to
Julius Caesar in 48 BC. Todays Pontifex Maximus is
Pope John Paul II.
As we shall discover in a forthcoming chapter, John Paul does
not hold that title alone. He shares it with a mysterious partner, a
military man, a man holding an office that has been known for
more than four centuries as Papa Nero, the Black Pope. I
present evidence that the House fasces represent the Black Pope,
who indeed rules the world.
Later, I will develop what is sure to become a controversial
hypothesis: that the Black Pope rules by divine appointment, and
for the ultimate good of mankind.
