"Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God!" – William Tyndale


Issue #53 // November 15, 2004 // Editor: Darryl Eberhart




((NOTE: All emphasis throughout this newsletter, unless otherwise noted, is by the editor of “Tackling the Tough Topics (TTT)”. Some issues of my TTT newsletters and my “Examining the Tough Issues (ETI)” newsletters can be seen on these following two Internet web sites: and .))

((NOTE: This issue of TTT may seriously disturb some folks’ comfort zones. Additionally, this issue is dedicated to good, courageous Roman Catholic Christians who have stood against evil, corruption, and tyranny throughout history! [note] My special thanks go to author Eric Jon Phelps, since many of the names of the Knights of Malta included in this newsletter were taken from his excellent book, Vatican Assassins.))

((NOTE: Abbreviations used: CIA = the Central Intelligence Agency; FBI = the Federal Bureau of Investigation; FDR = Franklin Delano Roosevelt; JFK = (President) John F. Kennedy; MLK = Martin Luther King; RFK = Robert F. Kennedy; and, WWII = World War Two.))


“...if you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits] are one and the same person.” – James Parton (American historian)


Editor of TTT has written two previous newsletters on “The Jesuits”: TTT #44 was entitled “The Jesuits”; TTT #49 was entitled “The Jesuits – Part II”. Both of those two TTT newsletters dealt with the history of Jesuit political intrigues and Jesuit involvement in the assassination of heads of state. Both of those two previous TTT newsletters contained numerous quotations by famous personages concerning the Jesuit Order.

This issue of TTT will deal with a powerful Roman Catholic organization, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) – i.e., the Knights of Malta. As one reads this newsletter, it is most important to remember that the Knights of Malta are headquartered in Rome together with the Jesuit hierarchy. The head of the Jesuits, the Jesuit Superior General (i.e., the Black Pope), is also the head of the Knights of Malta! Author John Daniel, in his excellent book The Grand Design Exposed, makes a very compelling case that the Jesuit Order (i.e., the Society of Jesus) took over Freemasonry centuries ago. If John Daniel is correct (and Editor of TTT believes that he is correct), then the Jesuit Superior General controls not only his own Jesuit Order, but also the powerful Knights of Malta AND the top levels of Freemasonry! Numerous authors have also made a compelling case that the Jesuit Superior General also controls the Papacy (i.e., the “White Pope” and the Roman Curia). When all this is taken into consideration, the Jesuit Superior General (the “Black Pope”) surely rates as one of the most powerful men in the world! ((NOTE: At least two popes were assassinated via the “poison cup” by the Jesuits: Pope Clement XIII in 1769 (for trying to suppress the Jesuit Order) and Pope Clement XIV in 1774 (for having succeeded in suppressing and banning the Jesuit Order in 1773). (Pope Pius VII, in exchange for his release from prison, “restored” the Jesuit Order in 1814.) Additionally, Pope John Paul I was poisoned to death in 1978 by P-2 Masonry and elements within the Roman Curia when he attempted to rein in the Vatican Bank and remove top-level Masons from the Vatican.))

Here is but a small sampling of famous personages who were Knights of Malta:

(Americans): Francis Cardinal Spellman, Dallas Bishop Thomas K. Gorman, Joseph P. Kennedy (father of JFK), Henry R. Luce, John McCone, William “Wild Bill” Donovan, William J. Casey, James Jesus Angleton, William Randolph Hearst, William F. Buckley, Jr., J. Peter Grace, Clay Shaw (former CIA contract agent), Cartha D. DeLoach (former FBI assistant director), (former) Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, (former) Hollywood director Frank Capra, William Simon (former Secretary of the Treasury), Myron Taylor (FDR’s personal ambassador to the Vatican in WWII), Francis D. Flanagan (former VIP for IT&T), John Farrell (former President of U.S. Steel), Frank Shakespeare (former President of CBS Television Services), and Lee Iacocca. ((Note: Three of the above men – McCone, Donovan, and Casey – were Directors of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA); one – Angleton – was the chief of the CIA’s Counterintelligence Office, and in charge of the CIA’s “Vatican Desk” and “Israel Desk”.))

(Foreign): German WWII General Reinhard Gehlen (Hitler’s chief intelligence officer against the Soviet Union), German Franz von Papen (who helped put Hitler into power in Nazi Germany, and who negotiated the Concordat between Hitler and Pope Pius XII), and Englishman and “double agent” Kim Philby. ((NOTE: We seem to have lots of Knights of Malta (and high-level Masons, too) spread all around various intelligence agencies throughout the world!))


If three directors of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) came from any relatively small, secretive organization, society, or club, surely the American people would want to know if something “un-American” was going on! Yet at least three directors of the CIA have been Knights of Malta: William “Wild Bill” Donovan, John McCone, and William Casey. Additionally, the very powerful position of CIA Chief of Counterintelligence was held for many years by James Jesus Angleton (another Knight of Malta)!

Now consider again the quote at the beginning of this newsletter by American historian James Parton: “...if you trace up Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top, head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Black Pope, the Superior General of the Jesuits] are one and the same person.” ((And please remember that author John Daniel makes a very compelling case in his book The Grand Design Exposed that the Jesuit Order took over Freemasonry centuries ago!)) Now consider these top-level Freemasons who have held top positions in U.S. Intelligence & Law Enforcement: (former FBI chief) J. Edger Hoover and (former CIA director) Allen Dulles.

((Interestingly, at least three U.S. presidents (Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Harry S. Truman) were top-level Freemasons; and a top advisor to both President Wilson and FDR was a top-level Mason (Edward Mandell House).))

By the way, another Knight of Malta seems to have played a key role in setting up the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA): German General Reinhard Gehlen – he was Hitler’s head of intelligence against the Soviet Union. Interestingly, two future Directors of the CIA (top-level Freemason Allen Dulles and Knight of Malta William Casey) were key players in bringing Reinhard Gehlen to the United States. Gehlen and a number of other top-level Nazis were “smuggled” out of Germany immediately at the end of WWII. Many of them moved through the “Vatican Ratlines” – intricate “escape routes” set up by the Vatican to help these “former” Nazis (and many Fascists, also) flee Europe (and escape any possible punishment for war crimes) at the end of WWII. ((WHY did the Vatican help top-level Nazis and Fascists to escape from Europe? And WHY did the Vatican sign Concordats with Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and other Fascist regimes in Europe during WWII?)) Quite a large number of these former top-level Nazis ended up in the USA, and went to work for the U.S. government (including the CIA)!


Did you know that Knight of Malta Clay Shaw (who was also a CIA contract agent and international industrialist) played a key role in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (JFK)? Did you know that several other Knights of Malta ((such as Assistant FBI Director Cartha D. DeLoach, James Jesus Angleton (Chief of CIA Counterintelligence; “liaison” to the Warren Commission), and Lee Iacocca)) participated in the cover-up of the real assassins involved in the JFK assassination? ((According to author Eric Jon Phelps, Lee Iacocca dispatched his head of security to take JFK’s presidential limousine for quick disassembly, thereby destroying any possible vehicular evidence of multiple shots having been fired at President Kennedy!)) Additionally, FBI Director J. Edger Hoover (a top-level Mason) was clearly implicated in the JFK assassination plot (being present with Vice President Lyndon Johnson and other powerful Americans at Clint Murchison’s mansion in North Dallas on the evening of November 21, 1963 – the day before the actual assassination). Another top-level Mason named to the Warren Commission to “investigate” the assassination of JFK was Allen Dulles! Allen Dulles just happened to have been fired from being the Director of the CIA by President Kennedy! ((JFK had stated shortly before his assassination that he was going to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces”!)) Another top-level Mason to be appointed to the Warren Commission (and to head it up) was Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren. Now please remember the quote at the beginning of this newsletter about the Jesuit Superior General (who controls the Knights of Malta) also controlling Freemasonry! There sure seem to be a lot of Knights of Malta and top-level Masons involved in both the assassination of JFK and in the subsequent cover-up! ((QUESTION: WHY are all these Knights of Malta and top-level Masons cooperating with each other IF the Vatican and Freemasonry are really opposed to each other?))

((NOTE: The above information is NOT “conspiracy theory”, but rather “conspiracy fact”! The proper view of history is indeed the “conspiratorial” one, rather than “everything in history just happens by chance”. There was indeed a conspiracy by several high-level Roman officials to murder Julius Caesar; there was also indeed a conspiracy on the part of Roman Emperor Nero and some of his lackeys to burn part of Rome and blame it on his enemies (the Christians); there was also indeed a conspiracy on the part of Hitler and his lackeys to burn the German Reichstag (Parliament Building) and blame it on his enemies (the Communists); and there was indeed a colossal conspiracy to both murder President John F. Kennedy, and to cover up the identity of the real assassins! If you still doubt that there was a conspiracy to assassinate JFK after all these years of massive cover-up, then please get a copy of Oliver Stone’s movie “JFK” (the “Special Edition Director’s Cut”) and carefully view it. Additionally, editor of TTT most highly recommends that you purchase a copy of the excellent book, The Elite Serial Killers of Lincoln, JFK, RFK & MLK, by Robert Gaylon Ross, Sr. (a former Army Security Agency officer) – it is available for $38.95 postpaid (338 pages; hardback) from “Radio Liberty” by calling their toll-free number 800-544-8927.))

((ADDITIONAL NOTE: President John F. Kennedy, a real American hero, took on the rich and powerful elite individuals who really run America “from behind the scenes”. JFK had fired the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), i.e., a top-level Freemason named Allen Dulles. He had also fired top CIA official General Charles Cabell (whose brother Earl Cabell just happened to be the Mayor of Dallas when JFK was assassinated there – probably just another coincidence, eh?). And please remember JFK’s statement about “splintering the CIA into a thousand pieces” shortly before his assassination! Editor of TTT previously devoted an entire issue (TTT #38, dated: November 22, 2003) to the JFK assassination. In that issue I listed the names of the 25 attendees of the “special meeting” at Clint Murchison’s mansion in North Dallas on November 21, 1963 (the day before the actual assassination). The following is a quote from that issue: “…One can easily see from examining the list of the 25 [attendees] [that the following elements were all involved in the JFK assassination]: [top elements] of the CIA and FBI; members of organized crime; members of “Big Oil”; and top political leaders.” Indeed, top levels of the CIA and FBI were involved in the assassination of a courageous U.S. President, and in the subsequent “whitewash” and cover-up by the Warren Commission!))


Here are just two of the top Knights of Malta who held key “power positions” in the establishment-CONTROLLED mainstream media:

(1) William Randolph Hearst (1863-1951) – American publisher of newspapers and magazines; by 1937 he owned 25 large daily newspapers.

(2) Henry Robinson Luce (1898-1967) – American publisher and editor; some of his magazines were Time, Life, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated.

Now here is something that is very interesting: These two Knights of Malta who were media moguls (William Randolph Hearst and Henry R. Luce), and another powerful Knight of Malta (J. Peter Grace), sponsored and supported two “Protestant” televangelists (Pat Robertson and Billy Graham)! Yes, according to author Texe Marrs, powerful Knight of Malta J. Peter Grace sponsored 33rd Degree Mason Pat Robertson; and powerful Knights of Malta William Randolph Hearst and Henry R. Luce sponsored 33rd Degree Mason Billy Graham! Now why would a Roman Catholic Order (the Knights of Malta – controlled by the Jesuit Superior General) sponsor two “Protestant” televangelists (who are Masons) – unless, of course, the Jesuit Superior General also controls Freemasonry at its top levels?

((NOTE: If you would like to learn more about American televangelists (and their connections to the Knights of Malta and Freemasonry), I recommend that you get the outstanding 84-minute VHS video tape entitled “Tower of Infamy” by Texe Marrs (author; and host of the “Power of Prophecy” radio broadcast). To order by credit card, call toll-free 1-800-234-9673.))


Editor of TTT has just barely “scratched the surface” of the power and influence of this Catholic Order, the Knights of Malta. Only a small sampling of famous Knights of Malta, both American and foreign-born, has been included in this newsletter.

Again, please consider that if the Jesuit Superior General (the Black Pope) indeed also controls Freemasonry as well as his own Jesuit Order and the Knights of Malta, then he is one of the most powerful men in the world. And considering the fact that so many Knights of Malta and high-level Masons have been Directors of the CIA (and have held a number of high-level positions in the FBI), then one must ask WHO is really running the top levels of U.S. Intelligence and Law Enforcement? And one must also ask: if so many of these Knights of Malta (controlled by the Jesuit Superior General) and top-level Masons cooperate on such important events as the assassination of JFK, then are the top levels of Freemasonry and the Jesuits/Knights of Malta really opposed to each other? Or just might one person (i.e., the Jesuit Superior General – the “Black Pope”) be controlling both groups?

If you would like to learn more about the assassination of JFK and several other famous Americans, you can purchase Robert Gaylon Ross, Sr.’s book The Elite Serial Killers of Lincoln, JFK, RFK & MLK.

Let me close this issue of TTT with one final comment, a Bible verse, and the following quote by Robert Gaylon Ross, Sr.:

“The U.S. government agencies, along with local and state law enforcement agencies, have concealed, destroyed, and ignored so much evidence in the assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK that we can not trust them to do their assigned jobs.”

Indeed, the massive cover-ups in the assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK (and even of Abraham Lincoln) continue to this very day. Much of the official evidence in the JFK assassination remains hidden from the American people under “national security”. It has been over four decades since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a professional “sniper team” of at least three shooters. What information is so horrible that the U.S. government must keep it “under wraps” and out of the sight of the American people after so much time has passed? WHO is being protected by this secrecy? Do top-level Masons and Knights of Malta really run the CIA and other intelligence agencies around the globe?

“Who will rise up for me against the evildoers, or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” (Psalm 94:16)

P.S. Please check out these great web sites for news that the establishment-controlled mainstream media often keeps from the American people (or “spins” it before it gets to the American people), and for insightful analysis of the news: and .
