JESUITS & THE U.S. GOVERNMENT Chris discusses some of the history of the Jesuit Order and the current influence of their Alumni in the government of the United States.

Wylie warned of the influence of this society in Great Britain, and set down lessons that may prove valuable to understanding our nation's condition today.
