    3. Jesuits are high level intelligent agents or spies that work under the Black Nobility, Vatican, and other Italian royals and nobles. Jesuits specialize in infiltrating all aspects of society. Jesuits also specialize in insane lying, chemical defilement, slander, and lying accusations. Jesuits also have some of the most depraved initiations which makes them more dangerous, desperate, and ruthless. Jesuits design and impose lies into society through their universities and through their top level infiltration of the US government, military, media, banking, and businesses. Jesuits also manage other secret societies and were directly connected to the Los Alumbrados in Spain when they were founded. Alumbrados is the Spanish word for Illuminati. The Massimo family founded the Massimiliano Massimo Institute a Jesuit college in Rome and ran the Jesuit Mondragone noble college with numerous presidents. Jesuits most often work under the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies and House of Bourbon-Parma which are continuations of the Farnese family. Pope Paul III or Alessandro Farnese officially established the Jesuits under the Vatican through the Papal Bull Regimini Militantis Ecclesia. The Jesuits specialize in militarized infiltration and have run the CIA and DOD with numerous directors and secretaries of defense. The Farnese family lived in a pentagonal fortress and that is the basis for the United States Pentagon. The Jesuits headquarters the Gesu Church have Farnesivs engraved on the top of their church. Farnesivs is the Latin variant of Farnese. Jesuits also work under the Black Nobility and are managed by a leader called the Black Pope or Superior General of the Society of Jesus who is Arturo Sosa. John Cecero, Brian Paulson, Joseph O’Keefe, Ronald Mercier, and Scott Santarosa are some Jesuit provincials with high authority in the United States and they are all ruthless terrorists and child killers. They use universities for recruiting Jesuit agents with their headquarters at Georgetown Washington DC. John DeGioia is the President of Georgetown and Joel Hellman is the Dean of Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service. The House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies and House of Bourbon-Parma run the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George which oversees the military and intelligence operations of the Jesuits. Jay Powell is the current Chairman of the US Federal Reserve and he was Jesuit educated at Georgetown. The current US President Donald Trump was educated at Jesuit Fordham and the Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is a professor at Georgetown. Jesuits recently directed the CIA with 5 agents in the past 30 years and several agents running the Department of Defense like Donald Rumsfeld. The Jesuits have run the IRS and NASA. Jesuits are heavily involved with high level banking and are managing or recently have managed the World Bank Group, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Bank of England, and the European Central Bank.
