A Roman Catholic military-religious order and/or secret society of, traditionally, a military, "chivalrous" and "noble nature". One of the world's oldest orders of knighthood, dating back to the 11th century. The Sovereign Military Order of Malta is headquartered in Rome, and is arguably a sovereign subject of international law.

The Knights of Malta (or the Sovereign Military Order of Malta) is a singularly long established, spooky catholic deep state milieu.

“The Knights of Malta is a world organization with its threads weaving through business, banking, politics, the CIA, other intelligence organizations, P2, religion, education, law, military, think tanks, foundations, the United States Information Agency, the United Nations, and numerous other organizations. The world head of the Knights of Malta is elected for a life term, with the approval of the Pope. The Knights of Malta have their own Constitution and are sworn to work toward the establishment of a New World Order with the Pope at its head. Knights of Malta members are also powerful members of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and the Trilateral Commission.”
William Cooper [1]

Official Narrative

The Knights of Malta are a self described Roman Catholic order, with 13,500 contributing members.[2] The BBC describes the group as "a major international humanitarian organisation". In February 1113, Pope Paschal II issued a papal bull which declared the order independent from bishops or secular authorities. Accordingly, in 2013, a 900th anniversary celebration was held in Rome, to which over 1,000 knights and dames from over 100 countries attended.[3] Matthew Festing, the 79th Prince and Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta who was forced out in January 2017, said about the order in 2013 that "On the one hand it’s a sovereign entity. On the other hand it’s a religious order. On the other hand it’s a humanitarian organization. It’s a complicated mixture of things".[2] [4]


The group includes many deep politicians, deep state actors, members of world governments, intelligence agencies, the banking industry, Big Media, and the military industrial complex which fits uncomfortably with its stated aims of "poverty, chastity and obedience", and gives a new angle on the order's claims to be above above national laws and even the Vatican's control, except in religious matters.[5] The group, which has Permanent Observer status at the United Nations, issues its own passports and used to be considered a separate country - and is still is by some people.[6] It also holds "Observer" status with the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund, and contributed USD $36,000 to the fund from 2006-2022.[7]

Only Roman Catholics can be members, although non-Catholics can receive merit decorations and medals. The list of members at right must be considered partly speculative, as no official public record exists.


The group's leader, the Prince and Grand Master of the Order of Malta, is elected in closed session, and normally retains the title for life. The most recent (79th) Grand Master was Matthew Festing, a member since 1977 and head of the Order from 2008 to January 2017, when he was pressured to resign in what many describe as a coup d'etat.[8] His predecessor, also an Englishman, was the first since 1258.

2016/17 Constitutional crisis

Since early December 2016, there has been a civil war within the Knights of Malta, but facts and original source documents have been few despite the worldwide press coverage.[9] One published article speaks of "treachery... greed, cover-ups, betrayal, corruption... blackmail... a successful coup" involving the highest levels of the Vatican and a suspicious 120 million Swiss franc account rumoured to be of Nazi or other dirty money origin, and managed by its Geneva-based trustee Ariane Slinger who appears in the Panama Papers.[10] Published evidence (noting related documents below) shows clear collusion, conflicts of interest and probable corruption involving Slinger and Knights of Malta Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager, Marc Odendall and Marwan Sehnaoui, as well as with various high officials in the Vatican of Pope Francis.


Full article: Freemasonry

In spite of open antagonism between the catholicism and freemasonry[11], many of the Knights of Malta are reported to also be freemasons.[12][13] The Vatican-appointed Commission (officially the "Group of Five") of December 2016 - January 2017 that exonerated von Boeselager and saw his reinstatement included Count Jacques de Liedekerke, widely believed to be a Freemason; the other commissioners included Odendall and Sehnaoui, who had been secretly colluding with von Boeselager and Slinger on the 120 million Swiss franc slush fund.

Seymour Hersh“'We're going to change mosques into cathedrals. And when we get hold of all the oil, nobody' s going to give a damn.' That's an attitude that pervades, I'm here to say, a large percentage of the Special Operations Command, the Joint Special Operations Command and Stanley McChrystal, the one who got in trouble because of the article in Rolling Stone, and his follow-on, a Navy admiral named McRaven, Bill McRaven — all are members or at least supporters of Knights of Malta. McRaven attended, so I understand, the recent annual convention of the Knights of Malta they had in Cyprus a few months back in November. They're all believers — many of them are members of Opus Dei. They do see what they are doing — and this is not an atypical attitude among some military — it's a crusade, literally. They see themselves as the protectors of the Christians. They're protecting them from the Muslims in the 13th century. And this is their function. They have little insignias, they have coins they pass among each other, which are crusader coins, and they have insignia that reflect that, the whole notion that this is a war, it's culture war.”Seymour HershJanuary 2011

Jorge Mario Bergoglio
A leaked "strictly confidential" set of two letters: one from Pope Francis (in Italian & English) to Knights of Malta Cardinal Patron Raymond Burke, who has added his own covering letter addressed to Grand Master Festing. Pope Francis appears to demand that Freemasonry ("relativist" groups contrary to the Catholic faith) be rooted out of the Knights, and that those complicit (e.g., von Boeselager) in practices contrary to Church teaching be dealt with.
Document:Lobkowicz Thoughts On Reform of The Knights Of Malta Constitutionletter12 April 2017Johannes LobkowiczA leaked letter written by Prince Johannes Lobkowicz, head of the Knights' Grand Priory of Bohemia. He openly advocates minimising the future leadership role of the professed knights in religious vows, including making the Grand Master a ceremonial figurehead who takes orders from powerful members and their bureaucrats, while ensuring a continuing important official status for the nobility in the Order (including himself).
Document:Suspension of Albrecht Boeselagerdecree9 December 2016Matthew FestingA leaked official decree of the Knights of Malta signed by Grand Master Festing. It was a "precautionary" suspension of von Boeselager caused by the latter's duplicity in various matters, including the Swiss trust, but primarily his complicity with and cover-up of Malteser International's practices contrary to Church teaching. The suspension was later annulled with the help of von Boeselager's Vatican cronies, and Festing was forced to resign by Pope Francis.
Document:Their Will Be Donearticle1 August 1983Martin A LeeHow the CIA targets powerful hierarchies for infiltration and influence. The Roman Catholic Church's claim to be the one and only authentic 'Church of Christ on Earth' does not exempt them from exploitation by deep politicians. This article powerfully demonstrates both the Catholic Church's power and its susceptibility to the machinations of Mammon. As they say in South America, "When the CIA goes to church, it doesn't go to pray."
