Main Article (Written Feb 2008): The Knights of Columbus Is a Catholic Men's organization founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, in New Haven, Connecticut. Today, more than a century later, the Knights of Columbus has become the largest lay organization in the Catholic Church (Est. 1.6 Million Members).
Many notable Catholic men from all over the world have been Knights of Columbus. In the United States, some of the most notable include John F. Kennedy; Ted Kennedy; Al Smith; Sargent Shriver; Samuel Alito; John Boehner; Ray Flynn; Jeb Bush; and Sergeant Major Daniel Daly, a two-time Medal of Honor recipient.
Many notable clerics are also Knights, including Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith; Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston; and Cardinal Jaime Sin, former Archbishop of Manila. In the world of sports, Vince Lombardi, the famed former coach of the Green Bay Packers; wrestler Lou Albano; James Connolly, the first Olympic gold-medal champion in modern times; Floyd Patterson, former heavyweight boxing champion; and baseball legend Babe Ruth were all knights.
the Catholic Church/Vatican have proven themselves to be the entity
behind fascism. And the K of C are considered the right arm of the Catholic
Church in America. Therefore the K of C is the right arm of fascism in
America and we can see this by the actions of the police force in America. Below are
two very recent videos showing what I mean. And this is just the beginning
Fasces (English: /ˈfæsiːz/, Latin: [ˈfa.skeːs]; a plurale tantum, from the Latin word fascis, meaning "bundle"; Italian: fascio littorio) is a bound bundle of wooden rods, sometimes including an axe with its blade emerging. The fasces had its origin in the Etruscan civilization and was passed on to ancient Rome, where it symbolized a magistrate's power and jurisdiction. The axe originally associated with the symbol, the Labrys (Greek: λάβρυς, lábrys) the double-bitted axe, originally from Crete, is one of the oldest symbols of Greek civilization. To the Romans, it was known as a bipennis. Commonly, the symbol was associated with female deities (like the Roman Catholic "Mary" which all Catholic venerate - worship), from prehistoric through historic times.
The image has survived in the modern world as a representation of magisterial or collective power, law and governance. The fasces frequently occurs as a charge in heraldry: it is present on the reverse of the U.S. Mercury dime coin and behind the podium in the United States House of Representatives; and it was the origin of the name of the National Fascist Party in Italy (from which the term fascism is derived).
During the first half of the 20th century both the fasces and the swastika (each symbol having its own unique ancient religious and mythological associations) became heavily identified with the authoritarian/fascist political movements of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. During this period the swastika became deeply stigmatized, but the fasces did not undergo a similar process.
The fact that the fasces remained in use in many societies after World War II may have been due to the fact that prior to Mussolini the fasces had already been adopted and incorporated within the governmental iconography of many governments outside Italy. As such, its use persists as an accepted form of governmental and other iconography in various contexts. (The swastika remains in common usage in parts of Asia for religious purposes which are also unrelated to early 20th century European fascism.) See more here

More information from Brother Nick Rivera:
(Brother Nick Rivera is a much more advanced in the knowledge of Jesuit intrigue than I am. It is an honor and a privilege to have such a man as a friend and brother.)
Michael J. McGivney was trained by Jesuits in Canada at the Order's St. Mary's College in Montreal.
I just found this page that says McGivney desired to become a Jesuit.
Here are some K of C logo photos besides the official one.
What a tangled web they weave!
This connection is crucial! He was being trained to become a Jesuit priest and nowhere does it say he never became one! He most certainly was a Jesuit Spiritual Coadjutor! This is worth looking into! The K of C is considered the long arm of the Catholic Church and head of it is the Black Pope. Therefore, the Knights of Columbus are merely enforcers of the Jesuit agenda for America like the Black Pope's NAU (Remember that photo I sent you of Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone at the recent K of C Convention States Dinner holding the Papal flag and Mexican flags?) They are most certainly connected to Freemasonry and I've read that K of C Councils annually meet with local Masonic Lodge members because they (the Fourth Degree Knights and Third and 33rd Degree Masons) all play on the same Jesuit-controlled team
Thanks for the link brother! The skull and crossbones on the robe is
very telling indeed! The Bush family (Jeb Bush was made a Third Degree
Knight in 2004 and is possibly a Fourth by now) maintains close ties
with former Supreme Knight of the K of C Virgil Dechant (George W.
Bush admitted this at the 132nd Annual Convention.)
I've been searching for connections between the Knights of Columbus and Freemasons Here is an old Time Magazine article from 1966 entitled "Knights and Masons Together." They are indeed two sides of the same Jesuit coin.
Interesting that Vatican II is mentioned here as the impetus for cooperation. In case you can't locate the photo of Cardinal Bertone holding the Papal and Mexican flags here it is. Here is a link listing Past Masters of a Masonic lodge and one of them is credited with introducing a local K of C Council to King Hiram's Lodge for an annual social gathering (See Michael Anthony Janoplis scroll down toward the end) I don't live too far from the K of C World Headquarters in New Haven.
The New Haven Police Department and Station is located across the
street from the K of C Print Shop. I have seen squad cars parked in
the K of C print shop parking lot. The shop is under 24 hour video
Have you heard of the International Order of Alhambra? It was created
in the early 20th century as an auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus
and remains so albeit unofficially to this day! The Order of Alhambra
is to the Knights of Columbus what the Shriners are to the Freemasons.
I found a photo of Alhambra members in the Oval Office with 33rd
Degree Harry S. Truman (note the white fezzes)
