DEFINITIONS (hopefully in alphabetical order):
“Booth, John Wilkes” (Per C.T. Wilcox, author of the book “The Transformation of the Republic: The Origins of the Religious Hi-Jacking of the American Government and the Truth Behind the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln”; 2005; Pages 190, 298, and 299): “John Wilkes [Ed.: Booth] was the only member of the Booth family whose sympathy was with the Confederacy. According to the ‘Great Conspiracy’, a book published in 1866 by Barclay Co., in Philadelphia, Pa., John Wilkes Booth had been initiated into the Knights of the Golden Circle [Ed.: a Jesuit front group] in Baltimore [Ed.: Maryland] in the fall of 1860…
There is much to convince the fair-minded investigator that John Wilkes Booth had been a convert to the Roman [Ed.: Catholic] Church. The evidence [Ed.: presented] in both the trials of the conspirators and John H. Surratt shows that Booth was frequently at Mass in various Roman [Ed.: Catholic] Churches. The fact that he [Ed.: i.e., Booth] wore an ‘Agnus Dei’ [Ed.: Latin for “Lamb of God”] bronze medal at the time of his death…which had become corroded from the moisture of his body, showed long wear. Only three weeks prior to the murder, as Admiral Baird tells us, he met Booth coming out of a Vesper Service at a Roman Catholic Church in Washington [D.C.]. This alone of course would not be conclusive, but taken together with other evidence strengthens the conclusion that he [Ed.: Booth] was not only a professed Romanist [Ed.: i.e., Roman Catholic], but that he was a devout one.
The close associates of Booth from his arrival in Washington [D.C.] from Montreal the middle of November 1864, until his flight after the murder [Ed.: of Lincoln], were fanatical Romanists [Ed.: i.e., Roman Catholics]. …[Ed.: Booth] became a constant, almost daily, visitor at the Surratt home [Ed.: Mary Surratt was a devout Roman Catholic] on H Street, which was the meeting place of Roman [Ed.: Catholic] priests of Washington and vicinity.”
“Booth, John Wilkes” (Per U.S. Army Colonel Edwin A. Sherman, author of the book “The Engineer Corps of Hell”; Page 213): “It has been told to us, coming from what we believe to be true authority, that [Ed.: John Wilkes] Booth, about three weeks before he committed the crime [Ed.: i.e., mortally wounding President Lincoln on April 14th, 1865], 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 [Ed.: i.e., Booth] might have in taking Abraham Lincoln’s life, and that he might have the whole influence and sympathy of persons in that faith in protecting and concealing himself when the act was done, to aid him in it. He [Ed.: i.e., Booth] certainly had that aid and influence in planning and accomplishing his hellish work and in making his escape…”
“Harris, Thomas M.” (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “U.S. Army Brigadier General Thomas M. Harris was born in either 1813 or 1817; he died in 1906. Harris was a member of the 12-man Military Commission [i.e., Court] that tried eight of the conspirators in the Lincoln assassination, and which sentenced four of them to be hanged by the neck until dead. Harris also wrote a book about the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln, entitled ‘Rome’s Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln’. Harris’ book was published in 1897.”
“Jesuit Order, The”: (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “The Jesuit Order was founded in 1534 by Ignatius of Loyola, and was officially approved as a religious order of the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Paul III in 1540. The primary goals of this order are (1) to roll back the Protestant Reformation and the freedoms that it brought to many of the inhabitants of this planet; (2) to enhance the power and prestige of the Papacy (and its ‘White Pope’); and, (3) to rule despotically over the governments of the world through the Papacy. The head of the Jesuit Order is the Jesuit Superior General – the ‘Black Pope’ – the real power behind the Papal throne. The Jesuit Superior General is also the master of all these: his Jesuit Order, the Knights of Malta, the Knights of Columbus, and the highest levels of Freemasonry – and of all that he controls through these powerful and influential organizations. The Jesuit Order is infamous for fomenting revolutions and wars, assassinating heads of State, and subverting nations. I believe that it is almost impossible to understand European history and Church history without a good understanding of the Protestant Reformation and the Jesuit-led Counter-Reformation.”
“Lincoln, Abraham” (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “Abraham Lincoln was born in 1809, and was assassinated in 1865. He became the 16th U.S. President in 1861, the same year that saw the beginning of the bloody American Civil War. As a young lawyer in Illinois, Abraham Lincoln had successfully defended in court a Roman Catholic priest, Charles Chiniquy. (Chiniquy had been framed by the Jesuit Order for a crime he did not commit; they had brought him to trial through the false testimony of the sister of a Roman Catholic priest named Lebel.) The Jesuits never forgave either Lincoln or Chiniquy, and would later orchestrate the conspiracy to decapitate the leadership of the USA on April 14th, 1865, when Lincoln was shot and mortally wounded by John Wilkes Booth.”
“McCarty, Burke” (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “Ms. Burke McCarty was a former Roman Catholic who had the great courage to write about the involvement of Papal Rome and the Jesuit Order in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Her book, entitled ‘The Suppressed Truth about the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln’, was published in 1924. Burke McCarty stated: ‘In all the bloody history of the Papacy, perhaps in no one man, as in Abraham Lincoln, was there concentrated such a multitude of reasons for his annihilation by that [Ed.: papal] system.’ She spent over seven years researching the conspiracy to assassinate President Lincoln before writing her book. Ms. McCarty also documents in her book how the ‘Divine Righters in Europe’ (i.e., the despotic European monarchs), with the blessings of the Papacy, made plans to destroy the American Constitutional Republic.”
“Surratt, John Harrison” (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “Jesuit-trained John Harrison Surratt (a Roman Catholic and an arch conspirator involved in the attempt to decapitate the leadership of the USA at the time of the Lincoln assassination) died in Baltimore, Maryland in 1916. The majority of the conspirators were Roman Catholics, including John Wilkes Booth. The plot to assassinate Lincoln was ‘hatched’ in the home of Mary Surratt (John Surratt’s mother) – a home which was frequented by Roman Catholic priests from the Washington, D.C. area.
After Booth mortally wounded President Lincoln on April 14, 1865, the manhunt for the conspirators ensued. John Harrison Surratt, with assistance from Roman Catholic priests in the USA and Canada, was able for quite some time to elude capture. Two Roman Catholic priests in Canada, Charles Boucher and LaPierre, hid Surratt and helped him to set sail for England. Surratt later arrived in Rome, where he became a member of the Pope’s personal bodyguard, a Zouaves military unit. When U.S. officials came to Rome to arrest Surratt, he was able to ‘escape’ from the papal guards who were escorting him. U.S. officials caught up with Surratt in Egypt, and brought him back to Washington, D.C., for a civil trial (in 1867) for his part in the Lincoln assassination conspiracy. Jesuits from Georgetown attended the trial, and helped to ‘sway’ the jury in favor of the defendant. Thus, despite overwhelming evidence of John Harrison Surratt’s guilt, the result of the trial was a ‘hung (i.e., deadlocked) jury’.
Upon his death in 1916, arch conspirator John Harrison Surratt was honored for his devoted service to Papal Rome with a ‘Solemn High Requiem Mass’ – officiated by three Roman Catholic priests!”
“Surratt, John Harrison” (Per Bill Hughes, author of the book “The Secret Terrorists”; 2002; Page 50): “Right after [Ed.: President Abraham] Lincoln’s death [Ed.: via an assassin’s bullet], [Ed.: Jesuit-trained] John [Harrison] Surratt, who was part of the assassination conspiracy, fled to Montreal [Ed.: Canada, where Roman Catholic priests hid him]. From Montreal [Ed.: again with the help of Roman Catholic priests] he was taken to Liverpool, England and then to Rome. When a United States official finally caught up with him, he was found in the Pope’s personal army [Ed.: i.e., in one of the Pope’s Zouave military units]. A conspirator in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln was a member of the Pope’s personal army!”
“Surratt, John Harrison” (Per C.T. Wilcox, author of the book “The Transformation of the Republic: The Origins of the Religious Hi-Jacking of the American Government and the Truth Behind the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln”; 2005; Pages 203, 204, 278, and 279): “That [Ed.: Jesuit-trained] John Harrison Surratt was cool, clever, calculating and crafty, far in advance of his years, is shown by the fact that at the very beginning of the Rebellion [Ed: i.e., the secession of the Southern states from the Union] he was selected to do important work in the Southern secret service, bearing the most important dispatches from [Ed.: Confederate President] Jefferson Davis at Richmond to his agents at Washington [D.C.] and to members of his ‘kitchen cabinet’ [Ed.: i.e., his unofficial advisors] in Montreal, Canada.
…When he [Ed.: i.e., John Harrison Surratt] was but twelve years old, he was placed in Gonzaga College, Washington, D.C., a [Ed.: Roman] Catholic preparatory school, under the tutelage of Priest Wiget, who was the confessor [Ed.: priest] for years of both himself and his mother [Ed.: i.e., Mary E. Surratt].
After leaving Gonzaga College he spent two years at Georgetown in the Jesuit College before leaving for the Sulpician Fathers monastery. …Georgetown – Jesuitized Georgetown – was constantly in evidence at the [Ed.: civil] trial [Ed.: of John Harrison Surratt for his pivotal role in the conspiracy to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln]. The priests of the Jesuit College [Ed: at Georgetown] were there [Ed.: at Surratt’s civil trial], and the students who were just dismissed for their vacations, were on hand and would always make it a particular point to greet Surratt, who had been a student of that institution for two years, most cordially, and he was scarcely ever without a priest at his side. [Ed.: Is it then surprising that some Roman Catholic members of the jury, despite overwhelming evidence proving Surratt’s guilt in the conspiracy to assassinate Lincoln, voted not to convict him?] It is small wonder that the priests of [Ed.: Papal] Rome gave every assistance to the prisoner at the bar. Their interests were inseparable. The interest of the Roman [Ed.: Catholic] Church in the United States was deeply involved and no one appreciated this more than Surratt. He was confident and defiant all through the weeks [Ed.: of the civil trial], of what would have been to most young men an unendurable ordeal, stimulated by the knowledge that all the powerful machinery of his [Ed.: Roman Catholic] church was being used in his defense and that his liberty was guaranteed.”
“Surratt, Mary E.” (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “Mrs. Mary E. Surratt was a devout Roman Catholic who had converted from Protestantism. Her home was the primary meeting place for a number of the conspirators involved in the Lincoln assassination, including her son, Jesuit-trained, arch conspirator John Harrison Surratt. (The majority of the conspirators were Roman Catholics, including John Wilkes Booth. Many of the conspirators made their plans for assassinating Lincoln in Mary Surratt’s home, which was frequented by Roman Catholic priests from the Washington, D.C. area.) She clearly played a major role in the attempt to decapitate the leadership of the USA during the Lincoln assassination (April 14, 1865). Mrs. Mary Surratt was sentenced to be hanged by the neck until dead by the 12-man Military Commission [i.e., Court] that tried eight of the conspirators in the Lincoln assassination, and her execution was carried out on July 7, 1865.”
“Wilcox, C.T.” (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “C.T. Wilcox is a Canadian professional actor and author. In 2005, he wrote a well-researched book entitled ‘The Transformation of the Republic: The Origins of the Religious Hi-Jacking of the American Government and The Truth Behind the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln’. His book provides vital information about the true causes of the American Civil War of 1861-1865, the Lincoln assassination, and the trials of the conspirators involved in that assassination. (His website is www.ctwilcox.com. His book, “The Transformation of the Republic”, can be ordered on www.lulu.com.)”
“12-Man Military Commission” (Per Darryl Eberhart, Editor of ETI & TTT): “A 12-man Military Commission [Court] tried eight of the conspirators in the Lincoln assassination, and sentenced four of them to be hanged by the neck until dead – and their execution was carried out on July 7, 1865. One of the members of this 12-man Military Commission was Thomas M. Harris, who rose to the rank of U.S. Army Brigadier General, and who authored the book ‘Rome’s Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln’.”
“…The Jesuits have not yet killed me. But they would have surely done it when I passed through their most devoted city, Baltimore [Ed.: Maryland, in February of 1861], had I not defeated their plans, by passing incognito a few hours before they expected me… The Pope and the Jesuits, with their infernal Inquisition, are the only organized powers in the world which have recourse to the dagger of the assassin to murder those whom they cannot convince with their arguments or conquer with the sword…
New projects of assassination are detected almost every day, accompanied with such savage circumstances, that they bring to my memory the massacre of St. Bartholomew and the Gunpowder Plot. Our investigation [Ed.: of the assassination plots against President Lincoln] indicate that they come from the same masters in the act of murder, the Jesuits… So many plots have already been made against my life, that it is a real miracle that they have all failed, when we consider that the great majority of them were in the hands of skillful Roman Catholic murderers, evidently trained by Jesuits. …The Jesuits are so expert in those deeds of blood that Henry IV said that it was impossible to escape them, and he became their victim, though he did all that could be done to protect himself. My escape from their [Ed.: i.e., the Jesuits’] hands, since the letter of the pope [Ed.: i.e., Pope Pius IX] to [Ed.: Confederate President] Jeff Davis has sharpened a million of daggers to pierce my breast, would be more than a miracle.” – Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States; as told to his friend Charles Chiniquy; from pages 292, 294, 299, and 302 of the Chick Publications edition of Chiniquy’s book “50 Years in the ‘Church’ of Rome”; 1985) [To order “50 Years in the ‘Church’ of Rome” ($18.10 to U.S. locations) by credit card, call 1-909-987-0771.]
“It would seem that the Jesuits had had it in mind, from the beginning of the war [Ed.: i.e., the American Civil War of 1861-1865], to find an occasion for the taking off [Ed.: i.e., the assassination] of Mr. Lincoln.
…These facts, as developed on the trial of the conspirators before a military commission, and on the trial of [Ed.: arch conspirator] John H. Surratt two years later [Ed.: in 1867], before a civil court…show conclusively the hand of [Ed.: Papal] Rome [Ed.: and especially the Jesuit Order] in this stab at our nation’s life [Ed.: i.e., the attempt to decapitate the leadership of the USA on April 14th, 1865, when Lincoln was mortally wounded].” – U.S. Army Brigadier General Thomas M. Harris; “Rome’s Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln”; 1897; Pages 41 and 19)
“But if anyone has still any doubts about of the complicity of the Jesuits in the murder of Abraham Lincoln, let him look at the very elaborate plan of escape prepared by the priests of Rome to save the lives of the assassins and the conspirators.” – Charles Chiniquy (1809-1899; Ex-Roman Catholic priest; quote taken from page 313 of the Chick Publications’ edition of Chiniquy’s book “50 Years in the ‘Church’ of Rome”; 1985)
President Abraham Lincoln was shot and mortally wounded by Jesuit-controlled Knight of the Golden Circle John Wilkes Booth on April 14th, 1865. At least nine other low-to-mid-level conspirators were involved with Booth in the April 14th, 1865 attempt at decapitating the leadership of the U.S. government. (Most of the conspirators were Roman Catholics, and several of them had been Jesuit-trained. Many of them made their plans to assassinate Lincoln in the home of devout Roman Catholic Mary E. Surratt – a home that was frequented by Roman Catholic priests from the Washington, D.C. area. There is quite a bit of evidence to show that Papal Rome and the Jesuit Order planned and orchestrated this attempt to decapitate the leadership of the USA.) Other targets of the conspirators were: Vice-President Andrew Johnson, Secretary of State William H. Seward, and Union Army General Ulysses S. Grant.
The reasons why President Lincoln was assassinated, as best as I can determine, are: (1) Lincoln had prevented the Union from being split into two separate nations, which greatly angered the Jesuit Order and the Papacy (who had fomented the American Civil War for that very purpose); (2) Lincoln had refused to accept loans at very high interest rates from Jesuit-controlled European bankers in order to finance the North’s war effort, again angering the Jesuit Order and the Papacy who would have immensely profited from such loans; (3) Lincoln wanted to bring the Southern states back into the Union under kind and generous terms, again angering the Jesuit-controlled part of the U.S. Congress that wanted to severely chastise the predominantly Protestant South (possibly hoping to stir up enough hatred to cause a renewal of the conflict at a future date) – and Lincoln most likely would not have supported the Jesuit-controlled Radical Republicans’ Fourteenth Amendment; (4) Lincoln had threatened the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church in the USA (especially Bishop John Hughes of New York) during the time of the New York Draft Riots of July 1863 (Lincoln had threatened to reveal the Roman Catholic hierarchy’s involvement in those riots); (5) Lincoln wanted to keep the U.S. free from foreign influence – especially from the influence of the Jesuits and the Papacy (and they knew this); (6) Lincoln was keenly aware of Jesuit and Papal plans made in the early part of the 19th century at Vienna, Verona, and Chieri for the destruction of the American Constitutional Republic (and the Jesuits and the Papacy knew this – and saw Lincoln as a major roadblock to implementing those plans); (7) Lincoln was also aware of the fact that the Jesuits and the Papacy are opposed to every freedom and liberty that we Americans cherish (and the Jesuits and the Papacy knew this); (8) Lincoln also knew of the various Jesuit and papal plots to assassinate him (and the Jesuits and the Papacy knew that Lincoln knew of their plots – and if allowed to serve out his second term as President, might at some future date reveal that knowledge); (9) Lincoln had become a genuine, Bible-believing Christian after the battle of Gettysburg in 1863, and the Jesuits and Papal Rome often cannot corrupt and/or control Bible-believing leaders – thus Christian men like Lincoln and Russian Czar Alexander I are an impediment to papal plans in any land, and must be removed; and, (10) The Jesuits and the rest of Papal Rome never forgave young lawyer Abraham Lincoln for successfully defending in court a Roman Catholic priest named Charles Chiniquy (who had been framed by the Jesuits through the false testimony of the sister of a Roman Catholic priest named Lebel).
