The Alberto "Assassination"

Alberto Rivera

Death by natural causes? Yeah, that's exactly what they WANT you to think!

Here's what we know about Alberto's death. He died a few weeks after May of 1997 in Broken Arrow Oklahoma. He was 61 and cause of death was listed on the death certificate as an 18 month battle with colon cancer.

We also know that before his death that he called Jack Chick and told him that "the Jesuits finally got me". Read Double Cross and you'll hear about all sorts of failed assassination plots against Alberto. His room was blown up in Ireland, ground glass was stuck in his food at a prayer meeting, he became ill after eating poisoned food, etc. He was even shot at in Chick's presence (in a drive by situation).

Alberto also claimed the Jesuits had a special poison that gave their victims a terminal cancer but left no traces of foul play. Years later, he succumbed to colon cancer. His wife, Nury Rivera, believes she knew when the poison was delivered (four years earlier). She claims it was supposed to kill him right away, and that it was a miracle that he survived another four years. But minor differences in her opinion and her husbands as to the timing of the poison do not seem to matter much.

What DOES matter is her claim about a series of phone calls she received after his death. She told Chick that Catholic Priests called her after her husband died and acted very sympathetic. They said they wanted to know where he was buried so they could conduct "a special service given to priests". She became angry and said they had denied he WAS a priest during his lifetime, and now that he was dead-- after calling him a liar all his life-- they wanted to give him a priest's funeral. She slammed the phone down in disgust. She figured what they really wanted to do was desecrate the grave.

Chick believes they wanted to do worse, FAR worse. He told friends that he thought the Catholic priests wanted to exhume Alberto's body and "put in on trial". It was a medieval practice they used to perform on heretics that eluded their capture while alive. Jesuits would find the body, dig it up, prop it up, and hold a mock trial, excommunicating the corpse and condemning it to Hell. Torture and mutilation of the body is also rumored to have occurred (as if it could feel it!). But such practices were probably more effective as a deterrent. The Living would hear about these after-death humiliations and become less likely to contradict The Church.

We'll never know what the motive for the phone call to Nury really was, but it brings up an interesting consideration: She is either lying or the priests WERE admitting Alberto was once a Catholic priest. For those who believe Alberto was suffering from delusions about being a priest, this seems to fly in the face of that logic. After all, it seems very unlikely his wife was ALSO imagining sinister Catholic experiences that supported his conspiracy theories. Mental illness is not contagious, and the chances a husband and wife BOTH had the same exact illness is next to impossible. Of course, some one could have been playing a prank on her, but that seems a rather strange prank. And although she could be lying, she had never (to our knowledge) made these statements publicly. They were in a private discussion with Chick. If the purpose was to provide greater credibility to her husband's claims, why wouldn't she disseminate the tale in a newsletter or something?

One thing's for certain: If the Alberto story is a hoax, it's a DAMN GOOD HOAX that Alberto played masterfully and consistently all the way to his death and beyond. Like the JFK assassination conspiracy, we'll probably never get iron clad proof whether it's really true or not, but it certainly is fascinating to consider the possibilities...
