The Jesuit Connection to the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln
Mary Todd like so many high society persons in Washington D.C. during the 1860s was an opium addict... that fact is in the Library of Congress. Her drug supplier also was a part time actor who doubled for the real full time actor John Wilkes Booth when he had multiple appearances on the same day in two different cities.
Abraham had the Treasury Department print money and that really pissed-off the Rothschilds and others because they did not want any competition with money they printed via their private company called the Federal Reserve Bank(2). Lincoln had to go because he betrayed his “family” but the plot was to discredit him by revealing that he had an affair with a Hapsburg illegitimate offspring and the royal sex resulted in two children.
