“You are not the first to warn me against the dangers of assassination. My ambassadors in Italy, France, and England, as well as Professor Morse, have many times warned me against the plots of the murderers, which they have detected in those different countries. But I see no other safeguard against those murderers but to be always ready to die…” ~ President Abraham Lincoln
Whenever there is some great, or important work to be done Rome calls the Jesuits. But, as is usually the case, when they have some really diabolical act to perform, the Jesuits use their agents. Former priest Charles Chiniquy wrote that because President Lincoln had stood in the way of Rome’s plans, the Jesuits arranged his assassination. Chiniquy cites the following conversation with Lincoln to support his claim of the Jesuits’ plot against the life of the President:
“My dear President, I must repeat to you here what I said when at Urbana in 1856. My fear is that you will fall under the blows of a Jesuit assassin if you do not pay more attention than you have done, till now, to protect yourself…”
President Lincoln: “You are not the first to warn me against the dangers of assassination. My ambassadors in Italy, France, and England, as well as Professor Morse, have many times warned me against the plots of the murderers, which they have detected in those different countries. But I see no other safeguard against those murderers but to be always ready to die, as Christ advises it.”
According to Father Chiniquy Abraham Lincoln’s “death warrant” was given at Rome, at St. Peter’s, in the afore-quoted letter of the Pope dated December 3, 1863. “On reading it,” writes Chiniquy, “President Lincoln exclaimed: “This letter gave de facto recognition to the Rebellion!”
But, perchance any sensible individual still doubts the capacity and propensity of the Jesuits to commit the crime just alleged, let him read the Moral Theology of Suarez-‘father’ of Jesuit Moral Theology: “It is an article of faith that the pope has the right to depose heretical and rebellious kings….” In the eyes of Rome, Lincoln was a heretical and rebellious ruler, having directed his general to seize and occupy the Catholic ‘state’ of Baltimore, Maryland.
The letter of the Pope, December 3, 1863, referred to by Chiniquy, it is said that it, “entirely changed the nature and ground of the war.” After the letter was published, Chiniquy tells transpired:
“My dear President, I answered, it is just that letter which brought me to your presence again. That letter is a poisoned arrow thrown by the Pope at you personally; it is your death warrant… To detach these men from the rank and file of the Northern armies, and force them to help the cause of the rebellion, became the main object of the Jesuits. Secret pressing letters were addressed from Rome to the bishops, ordering them to weaken your armies by detaching those men from you…”
“That letter tells every Roman Catholic that you are a bloodthirsty tyrant fighting against a government, which the infallible and holy Pope of Rome recognizes as legitimate. The Pope, by this letter, tells his blind slaves that you are outraging the God of heaven and earth, by continuing such a bloody war. By this letter of the Pope to Jeff Davis you are not only an apostate, as you were thought before, whom every man had a right to kill, according to the canonical laws of Rome… And the dear President, this is not a fancy imagination on my part, it is the unanimous explanation given me by a great number of priests of Rome, with whom I have had occasion to speak on that subject… The Pope’s poison pen letter caused massive Roman Catholic desertions from the Union army…New projects of assassination are detected almost every day… that they bring to my memory the massacre of St Bartholomew and the Gunpowder plot.
Lincoln was assassinated almost a year later, April 14, 1865, on “Good Friday” night, at Ford’s Theatre, Washington, D.C., while seated in the presidential box enjoying the acting of an English play. This fact is well-known to everyone. What is not so widely known and of great significance-a fact hidden from the American people-is that every single one of the conspirators convicted and hanged in connection with the assassination of President Lincoln were not just Roman Catholics but were coached by the Jesuits. Perhaps this explains why the full facts leading up to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln – the greatest tragedy in the history of America – have been suppressed. The extent of the history taught in American schools and colleges about Lincoln’s death barely exceeds these few words: “President Lincoln was assassinated in Ford’s Theatre, April 14th, 1865, by actor named John Wilkes Booth. Andrew Johnson was immediately sworn into office.”
Since this opinion may be suspected of singularity, I present here the additional testimony of impartial witnesses to the facts, facts which tend to show the Jesuits were the masterminds behind the assassination of Lincoln. Edwin A. Sherman, in Engineer Corps of Hell, page 213 says:
“It has been told to us, coming from what we believe to be true authority, that Booth, about three weeks before he committed the crime, was admitted to the Roman Catholic Church, and privately received the sacraments from no less a personage than Archbishop Spaulding himself, which he did to silence any conscientious scruples that he might have in taking Abraham Lincoln’s life… and it was but a short time after that Archbishop Spaulding received a donation of funds for the specific purpose which was to uniform and equip a military body in the same manner and style as the Papal Guard at Rome. The uniforms, muskets, cartridge boxes and belts all bearing the Papal coat of arms and consecrated by the pope himself, were sent to Archbishop Spaulding at Baltimore… The entire diocese… was rebel to the core and fierce in its hatred of Lincoln."
Trial of the Assassins – The Accepted Evidence
Our first witness, Burke McCarty, ex-Roman Catholic, states: “Abraham Lincoln was their Nemesis. They knew only too well that he would be the stumbling block to their future plans… They feared with a deadly fear the influence of his able pen and voice. They knew that to permit this calm, thorough, clear-visioned man who had such a complete estimate of their perfidious designs to serve at the helm the reconstruction period would their ultimate rout in our political affairs.”
The Jesuits’ involvement in Lincoln’s assassination was canvassed in closing arguments of John A. Bingham, Special Judge Advocate:
“May it please the Court” [said Bingham]:…. “The crime charged and specified upon your record is…. a crime of killing and murdering on the 14th day of April, A.D. 1865… Abraham Lincoln, then President of the United States, and Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy… in pursuance of a treasonable conspiracy entered into by the accused with one John Wilkes Booth, and John H. Surratt, upon the instigation of Jefferson Davis, Jacob Thompson, Clement C. Clay, George N. Sanders and others, with intent thereby to aid the existing Rebellion and subvert the Constitution and laws of the United States… In speaking of this assassination of the President and others, Jacob Thompson said that it was only removing them from office, that “the killing of a tyrant was no murder [a Jesuit doctrine].”
…the letter from Jefferson Davis which Sanders had exhibited and in which conversation Clay gave the witness to understand that he knew the nature of the letter perfectly and remarked that he thought, “The end would justify the means”…. [another Jesuit doctrine].
The noted use of two well-known Jesuit maxims (accepted by all the popes) in the summary by Bingham, Special Judge Advocate, namely, that “the killing of a tyrant was no murder,” and “The end would justify the means.” It was upon the above, accepted, evidence that the Tribunal (Commission) convicted and condemned the eight Catholic assassins – murderous tools of the Jesuits.
One of the central figures of interest in the assassination trial was Mrs. Mary E. Surratt. Mrs. Surratt and her family were devout Catholics, and regularly attended church services. Both she and her son, John H. Surratt were indicted for involvement in Lincoln’s murder.
Brigadier General Thomas M. Harris, a member of the Hunter Commission – the Commission that investigated Lincoln’s murder – wrote a book in which he said: “It is a fact well established that the headquarters of the conspiracy was the house of a Roman Catholic family, of which Mrs. Mary E. Surratt was the head; and that all of its inmates, including a number of boarders, were devoted members of the Roman Catholic Church. This house was the meeting, the council chamber, of Booth [John Wilkes] and his co-conspirators, including… John H. Surratt whose mentor was a Jesuit Father B.F. Wiget… The wily Jesuit… in the hope of destroying our government, and establishing the Confederacy [the southern rebellion]… was able to convert him (John Surratt) to Catholicism.”
The following dispatch No. 539 from the United States Consulate suggests the Vatican’s collusion with Surratt:
Liverpool, September 30, 1865
Since my dispatch No. 538, the supposed Surratt has arrived in Liverpool and is now staying at the oratory of the Roman Catholic Church of the Holy Cross… If it be Surratt, such a wretch ought not to escape… [signed] H. Wilding
And on page 203 of the book Why Was Lincoln Murdered? we learn: “In April 1866, he [John Surratt] arrived in Rome and … enlisted as a Zouave [a bodyguard to the Pope] in the Pope’s service under the name of John Watson.” Further, sworn legal testimony from a Catholic priest concurs with the assertion that Rome was behind Lincoln’s murder. According to the United States Government records “The priest, Father Boucher swears that only a few days after the murder, John Surratt was sent to him by Father Lapierre, of Montreal; that he kept him concealed in his parsonage of St. Liboire, from the end of April to the end of July, then took him secreted in his father’s house… He swears (at pp.. 905-914, see, The Trial of John Surratt, vol. ii, 1867) that Father Lapierre visited him (Surratt) often, when secreted at St. Lapierre, and that he (Father Boucher) visited him, a least twice a week, from the end of July to September, when concealed in Father Lapierre’s house…”
And in a book published in 1909 by the Catholic publishers Doubleday we read “[it was decided Surratt should]… go out forty miles into the country, to the village of St. Liboire, where a priest named Father Boucher gave the fugitive asylum for three months [in a monastery]. During August and the early days of September, Surratt was sheltered and hid by another priest, and the second week in September the two priests took him by steamer to Quebec and saw him abroad the Peruvian bound for Liverpool. Surratt remained in Liverpool until November, when he went to Rome and enlisted in the Papal Zouaves.”
The newspaper of the town of St. Cloud, Minnesota, Monday April 17, 1865, will furnish us with further proof of the involvement of the Jesuits in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln at the hands of Booth:
“…positive evidence that these Jesuit Fathers, priests of Rome, engaged… in correspondence with their brethren in Washington City, and had been informed of the plan to assassinate the President… the agents for its accomplishment had been found, the time for its execution had been set, and so sure were they of its accomplishment, that they could announce it [the actual assassination itself] as already done, three of four hours before it had been consummated… They could not refrain from passing it around… as a piece of glorious news.”
The St. Cloud newspaper heard of President Lincoln’s assassination because it was reported to them by Francis A. Conwell, chaplain of the first Minnesota Regiment. Conwell himself was given news of the assassination by an employee (J.H. Linneman) of the Catholic seminary in St. Joseph, Minnesota, several hours before it had actually taken place. So the Catholic priests at the seminary in Minnesota knew of Lincoln’s death even though they were hundreds of miles away from the place of the assassination, in an era when it took days if not weeks for news to get to one place to another.
Writes Chiniquy: “Three or four hours before Lincoln was murdered in Washington, the 14th of April, 1865, that murder was not only known by someone, but it was circulated and talked of in the streets, and in the houses of the priestly and Romish town of St. Joseph, Minnesota…” Chiniquy continues, “The fact is undeniable; the testimonies are unchallengeable: and there were no railroad nor telegraph communications nearer than forty or eighty miles from the nearest station to St. Joseph… On the 14th of April, 1865, the priest of Rome knew and circulated the death of Lincoln four hours before it occurrence in their Roman Catholic town of St. Joseph, Minnesota. But they could not circulate it, and they could not know it without belonging to the band of conspirators who assassinated President Lincoln…”
This is the true history of the assassination of President Lincoln you will not find in any mainstream history book.
[President Abraham Lincoln]
These Jesuit-controlled devils murdered Lincoln on April 14, 1865. What a pack of cruel, crafty, politicking, plotting monks, and pious gangsters – the Jesuits: merciless enemies of liberty. For it has always been “a fundamental principle of this Order that the end justifies the means…. Lying, theft, perjury, assassination, were not only pardonable but commendable, when they served the interests of the church.”
Even the Catholic Emmett McLaughin, who authored The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln, posits that the Jesuits assassinated President Lincoln. Yet, this information was deliberately hidden from the public at the time of the Hunter Commission, which met in private, as a military tribunal, rather than in open criminal proceedings. The question is, why? Why would the tribunal not allow the people of America access to so public a spectacle-the greatest of all tragedies in the history of America? Perhaps it was because, as Chiniquy said, if the American Protestants knew the real instigators of their dreadful Civil war and the assassination of Lincoln, they would have massacred their Catholic countrymen. Perhaps, then, the tribunal was right in so deciding: the withholding of the truth from the American people so as to avoid an outright religious war.
Perhaps. But then again, the head of the Commission was the new President, Andrew Johnson-a high ranking Freemason, and secrecy is their motto.
Not long after Lincoln’s assassination the U.S. Government broke off diplomatic relations with the Vatican on 30th June 1867, purportedly because Rome refused to allow non-catholic religious worship inside the walls of Rome. But this explanation does not make any sense. The real reason is more likely to be that Lincoln’s assassination was found by the Tribunal to have been perpetrated by eight Catholics, several of whom were held by the Tribunal to have been under the influence of the Jesuits and one of whom (John Surratt) was found to have been working for months in Rome as a Zouave (a personal bodyguard in the paid service of the Pope) “under the false name of John Watson.”
