UPDATE (within 1 hour of publishing, LOL): The source of the most prominent quote in this article is from one Charles Chiniquy, whose relationship with President Lincoln may have been overstated, and some have claimed that he manufactured some of his quotes of Lincoln. However, I am leaving this article up here, because they definitely did have at least a small correspondence and it is possible that Lincoln really said these things. Also, I believe the list of quotes I’ve linked to of other Founding Fathers and important historical figures on this matter are still relevant, and it is definitely worth having a gander at the Jesuit oath provided below. Your comments are, as always, welcome.
I am going to go out on a limb here and delve into some history. First and foremost, our site is about health. However, branching off from that broad platform, it is easy to fall into the deep chasm of frustration that is health conspiracies. And upon commencement of this consideration, one must wonder about those entities perpetrating said atrocities, as well as the ones allowing them to proliferate—what is their agenda? This week, I was all but accused of obsessing over conspiracies. While I couldn’t argue that this was indeed the case, I did quibble with my accuser about why one wouldn’t obsess over these dastardly deeds done in the dark, especially since so many have been proven and come to light in recent history.
Your mental and physical health are at stake now more than ever before, and if they are not being outright targeted in a political game whose objective is complete social control, they are at least being trampled as collateral damage in an inexorable but perhaps not-so-insidious scramble for power and money involving the collusion between government and corporations. Why wouldn’t you be paranoid?
Allow me to justify the historical content of this post as appropriate by bringing up a hackneyed quote: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” -George Santayana
This particularly compels me to discuss history, because as a health-conscious individual, one must be aware of their surroundings and how they, as well as their experiences, have affected them on a mental and/or physical level. So, as frogs in a proverbial—oh… let’s say 210-degree—pot of fluoridated water, let’s look into our past to consider a pertinent example of a wise individual regarding history when considering the true nature of a situation. And I don’t just mean the portentous moment when Ancel Keys fudged a bunch of data to scare us away from saturated fat, get us hooked on carbs, and turn us on to veganism. I’m talking wayback-machine back. Honestly, to really get down to the root of the matter, we’d have to go back to the beginning of time and look at power struggles in the heavens. Instead we’ll just hit the 19th Century for a moment.
Abraham Lincoln. How can one describe such an individual? In a way, he’s the prototype for a President who inspires and governs almost solely through speech. He is beloved for keeping together the country and for emancipating the slaves. This man endured and lead faithfully through perhaps the most controversial, and certainly the bloodiest, of social struggles ever to occur in our dear nation’s history. We don’t know all of the motivations of everyone involved (a lot of intelligent people are bafflingly still Confederate apologists), but the result was an all-out war from the vast rift made between both sides.
After the war, Lincoln was known for his proclamations of amnesty for the lower-level rebels in order to achieve a successful reconstruction of the South in the wake of the bloodshed and destruction. However, in the following quote, you will find him lacking in compassion and quite condemning of a certain secret society in service of the Vatican:
This [American Civil] war [of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons. Though there were great differences of opinion between the South and the North on the question of slavery, neither Jeff Davis [President of the Confederacy] nor anyone of the leading men of the Confederacy would have dared to attack the North, had they not relied on the promises of the Jesuits, that under the mask of Democracy, the money and arms of the Roman Catholic, even the arms of France, were at their disposal if they would attack us. I pity the priests, the bishops and monks of Rome in the United States, when the people realize that they are, in great part, responsible for the tears and the blood shed in this war. I conceal what I know on that subject from the knowledge of the nation, for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and it would at once take a tenfold more savage and bloody character. It would become merciless as all religious wars are. It would become a war of extermination on both sides. The Protestants of both the North and the South would surely unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits, if they could hear what Professor [Samuel B.] Morse [Ed. Note: famous for the Morse code] has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome [i.e., at the Vatican] to destroy this Republic, and if they could learn how the [Roman Catholic] priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores, under the pretext of preaching their religion, instructing the people in their schools, taking care of the sick in the hospitals, are nothing else but the emissaries of the Pope, of Napoleon, and the other despots of Europe, to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our Constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, in Mexico, in Spain, and wherever there are any people who want to be free.

Now this might all seem out of nowhere and a little like nonsense to some of you. To others who get it but are not Catholic, this may be just a bit odd, because it condemns the Roman Catholic religion pretty heavily, and you may be wondering about the source. To Catholics, I’m very sorry. I know this is probably too much for you to buy into. I hope Abe didn’t lose you right away. But, remember, this is Honest Abe Lincoln. Are those of you who doubt conspiracy theorists and write them off right away going to cast aside an icon of truth just as readily? I’m pretty sure this gives those who buy into conspiracies a little more cred.
So here’s an individual—a president—in a racially charged, brother-against-brother, epic historical situation—not condemning his enemy; not doubting himself; not blaming God; but instead pointing out this secret society as the culprit behind the most bloody war in American history. Currently, even in this “enlightened” Information Age, when someone blames a secret society for anything, they are accused of “conspiracy theorism,” paranoia, insanity, radicalism, and I dunno–treason? Even without this newly found Lincoln evidence—give me a break! Just give me a break.
Look at Edward Snowden. He revealed with great personal sacrifice and courage that our government has been spying on its own citizens without our knowledge. I’m sure they’re logging this and reading this right now in fact! It’s a betrayal of everything American, and it’s not acceptable. But here we have Abraham Lincoln, probably the most uniformly acclaimed President in our history, blaming the Civil War on a secret society that’s under orders of the Pope. He had a lot to lose as far as political clout goes, yet no one talks about this bloody denouncement of an organization so highly respected in our world. Could it be that these quotes that would seem so likely to be reviewed in history class due to their extremely relevant nature are being suppressed? This must do something to change the common perspective on conspiracies in the general public’s eyes.
For further information, you can read what Samuel Morse (as referenced by Lincoln) had to say about the Jesuits, or you can look through this page of quotes about Jesuits from Founding Fathers and other important historical figures.
The secret initiation oath or charter for high-level Jesuits, available in documents easily accessible from the Library of Congress [Journals of the 62nd Congress, 3rd Session, of the United States Congressional Record (House Calendar No. 397, Report No. 1523, 15 February, 1913, pp. 3215-3216)], consists of verbiage like the following: (WARNING: This is extremely disturbing.)
I do further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will of my own or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ. That I will go to any part of the world whithersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions north, jungles of India, to the centres of civilisation of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things, whatsoever is communicated to me. I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex nor condition, and that will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants’ heads against the walls in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus. In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my life, soul, and all corporal powers, and with the dagger which I now receive I will subscribe my name written in my blood in testimony thereof; and should I prove false, or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the militia of the Pope cut off my hands and feet and my throat from ear to ear, my belly be opened and sulphur burned therein with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth, and my soul shall be tortured by demons in eternal hell forever.
Not really a conspiracy theory. This one’s a proven conspiracy.
Allow me to move the time machine forward to today, and ask you: Considering all of the power the established media, corporations, the scientific establishment, and the government have to narrow the scope of the public’s attention onto an event that involves race, our humanity, our morals, our political beliefs, or our religion; is it so out there anymore to believe that a secret society or power elite could be inciting conflict and creating division to further their agenda? Just as Lincoln theorized that the Jesuits and the Pope were the masterminds behind the Civil War, pushing their nefarious agenda along, couldn’t we just as well theorize as a majority that something is up with this Ferguson situation with all of its race baiting and incited/encouraged rioting? Doesn’t knowing that something like this Jesuit secret society existed, with a horrifying oath like that, make you think twice about the realm of possibility for hidden deception in the world, especially in our time and political climate? I’m not saying for sure either way, but it’s definitely very possible, if not very likely, that most of what we are encouraged to believe about motivations in world politics has very little to do with what is presented in mainstream media.

Poor Whites in Uptown Chicago Protest Slum Conditions, 1968
I encourage you to choose love, especially when the general sentiment being sold to you is hatred towards a marginalized group; or if you are a marginalized or minority group, toward the group that you are supposed to perceive is being given more. All things are surely not equal yet, but the cause of that inequality is the thing. We all must strive together to encourage greater opportunities and freedom for all people in this country, and not reward complacency with welfare and handouts, which despite their stated intentions solidify the helplessness and destitution of these marginalized individuals. In this way, poor inner-city folk truly are victims, targeted because of their ignorance with promises of free sustenance and luxuries.
There isn’t a sure answer as to how to provide these opportunities, but the transition starts with lessening the influence of the deceptive false provider (in this case the U.S. Government or State welfare) and allowing an individual to start to provide for himself (or herself). We must be an example in this to others around the world as well, so that people can have more freedom and opportunity abroad in their own lands, and not always feel that they need to come to the U.S. to have these opportunities.
Every individual society can sustain itself. Every individual community can sustain itself. Every individual must sustain himself to an extent. The conspiratorial organization, if it exists (it doesn’t matter if it exists, because this concept still exists), tells the individual (community or society) that not only can they not sustain themselves, but that all their needs will be taken care of if they just go along with the program and denounce those who promote individual rights, self-sufficiency, and voluntary contributions to charity (which are always more plentiful from those who believe in freedom).
The answer is in our hands ultimately. If there is an elite bent on conflict and wars, pulling us ever further into their control by showing us and everyone else in the world how we’re depraved, not deserving of freedom because of our tribal nature or our tendency towards violence and hatred, we must wrest our destiny from their hands by putting it in our own hands, and we must never let go.
