Africans Declare War on Freemasons
Thousands vow to eradicate shadowy cult
Amidst a growing global awareness of the problem of the worlds covert religious cults, mainstream Anglican, Catholic and Presbyterian churches in Africa have joined with leaders of Kenya's Mungiki youth movement in calling for the abolition of the Freemasons. The Parish Pastor of Nairobi’s St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA), one of the oldest traditional churches in Kenya, said recently that Freemasonry needs to be abolished, citing, "It has no moral standing in the wider community," he said.
The Mungiki movement with some 4 million followers, has accused the Freemasons of involvement in the disappearance of children and a mysterious string of murders that have recently rocked Nairobi.
The pronouncement came after a consortium of churches, during an interdenominational conference, called for the total ban on Freemasonry in Kenya. The Nanyuki conference, attended by officials of the National Council of Churches, Evangelical Fellowship of Kenya, the Catholic Church and representatives of the Independent Churches of Kenya, lashed out at the Freemason society, accusing it of "engaging in undercurrent activities." The churches pointed out that Freemasonry is a secretive society whose activities may not be good to the welfare of the human society.
On 3 September, Rev. Samuel Muli of the Church of Christ led a group of demonstrators in the city as part of the ongoing campaigns to outlaw the Freemansonry in the East African country. Accusing the organisation of clandestine operations, Muli who is also the director of Evangelism Association - a consortium of evangelical revival churches, said Freemasonry is a threat to the human race and thus the need to have it abolished.
It's no wonder there's a growing backlash against the covert western based quasi religious, quasi military cults - many Africans believe the recent the Paradise Hotel bombing, was in fact perpetrated by another quasi religious, quasi military group - the CIA (with Mossad assistance.)
And so the secret societies, such as the Jesuits, the Freemasons and the Knights of Malta, which represent the west, continue to rampage around the world causing enumerable blunders, screw-ups and miscalculations - all in the name of each and every citizen in the west - and it will be the ordinary citizen who will pay the price for the mischief of our secret cults.

vox--"blunders, screw-ups, miscalculations" and "mischief"--? Odd choice of words...

VOX COMMENT ANNOTATION: The reason I choose to use these terms instead of my typical terms for such groups, murders, assassins, criminals, is because I believe that the majority of the members of these groups never actually rise to the level where such atrocities occur. They are merely the foot soldiers - the worker ants, if you will. I always reserve my most scathing vitriol for their leadership only. For it is the leadership alone in these groups who has the knowledge of the dark workings of these groups NEVER the lower level workers and supporters. The lower level initiates in these orders is for dues only and to do the "good" deeds of these front groups. But these lower level initiates are not aware that these groups are merely front groups for a higher power - the billionaire bankers and industrialists who secretly control every one of these groups - every one of them.

In a description regarding what is required to join the "Brotherhood" there is a passage that reads, "One must enjoy the company of other men." "Participate in the rites nd rituals." "and wear the aprons and gowns of that particular lodge."
Aprons and Gowns??? Enjoying the company of men??? Is this the Freemasons or the local chapter of NAMBLA? (North American Man-Boy Love Association)

What a strange and whacky world we live in. It’s been a while since the last mailing, so this mail is a condensed version of the last few weeks of unbelievable news from the White House. Scratch that. Unbelievable isn’t a strong enough word.
To use military jargon, what we have here is a FUBAR. Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition. Literal convicted criminals are running the country.
Henry Kissinger, a man responsible for green lighting the deaths of 50,000 in Chile; 15,000 in Argentina; 3 million in Cambodia; and 300,000 in Indonesia, has been put in charge of the 9/11 investigation. He began by saying the entire truth will be told, that nothing would be kept hidden, and then promptly refused to turn over a client list that could be checked for potential conflicts of interest. Great start.
Then Elliot Abrams, a convicted Iran/Contra criminal who was pardoned by G H W Bush, a man who lied to Congress about murder, drug dealing and theft, was appointed as National Security Council for the Middle East and North Africa. I guess we won’t be catching too many heroin shipments bound for the USA, will we?
The list of Iran Contra criminals running foreign policy is mind-boggling. John Poindexter, another convicted criminal who was pardoned by Bush, is now in charge of DARPA’s Total Information Awareness project, designed to spy on regular Americans. A convicted criminal gets to watch over every purchase you make, every book you check out, and every porno movie you rent. What a country.
John Negroponte, Iran Contra criminal who was the go to guy in Nicaragua, is Ambassador to the UN. This is a guy who oversaw the rape and murder of Nuns for a living.
Otto Reich, another Iran Contra criminal who illegally used a US office to run disinformation and propaganda campaigns, was appointed as Secretary of State for Latin America. He’s going to be re-appointed to that post shortly, where he can once again try to assassinate or oust Hugo Chavez like he did earlier this year.
Richard Armitage, a special forces assassin who looks like a no-neck mafia goon, is Deputy Secretary of State to Colin Powell. The message is not lost on foreign leaders when Powell goes to “negotiate”, with a hit man sitting right beside him.
Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld have been up to their eyeballs for decades. First with Nixon, then with Ford, then with Reagan, Bush, and now with King George II. At some point, we need WAR CRIMES TRIBUNALS. Sooner rather than later.
I warned of this almost two years ago… that the Iran Contra team would be re-assembled, so the Bush family could continue to deal drugs. Thus far, they’ve managed to increase opium production in Afghanistan from 75 tonnes in 2000 to more than 3000 tonnes in 2001, and ditto for 2002. Business as usual for the Bushes, and now they have their entire supply chain in place just like they did in the 80’s.
Watch for heroin purity to steadily go up, and the price steadily down, all over America for at least the next two years.
A MURDER OF CROWS
Then there’s the Senate. Trent Lott is the Republican Senate Majority leader. At a gathering for Strom Thurmond (R-Miss), a fixture of unabashed race-hatred for the last fifty years, Trent Lott got a little too happy with the situation in America, and revealed his true colors to the world.
Trent Lott is the third most powerful Republican in America. And like Bush, he’s a white supremacist pig. Here’s what he had to say about Strom Thurmond’s presidential race in 1948:
“I want to say this about my state, when Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over all these years, either.”
We wouldn’t have had all these ‘problems’. Problems like civil rights, equal rights, the end of Apartheid south of the Mason-Dixon line, and uppity “Negroes” who think they’re the equal of white men.
THAT is what Trent Lott meant. There can be no misunderstanding here… Trent Lott is a career politician, who admits he proudly voted for Thurmond in ’48. He can’t pretend to ‘not have known’ what he was voting for.
Thurmond was the head of the Dixiecrats, a breakaway Republican movement that ran against Dewey and Truman on a single platform: “We stand for the segregation of the races and the racial integrity of each race.”
This is a sample of one of Thurmond’s speeches that Trent Lott proudly admitted he voted for:
“All the laws of Washington and all the bayonets of the Army cannot force the Negro into our homes, our schools, our churches.”
Franklin Graham would be upset that Thurmond forgot to say, “Amen”, but there you have it. This is what America stands for today, under this administration. Pure, unabashed racism.
“Oh, you’re being an alarmist.” you say, “He just mis-spoke is all”
Well, if it was just a mistaken slip of the tongue, why did Trent Lott say the EXACT SAME THING 20 years ago in Mississippi during an election campaign?
According to the Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Mississippi, on Nov. 3, 1980, Trent Lott said, 'You know, if we had elected this man 30 years ago, we wouldn't be in the mess we are today'
How bout them apples?
Jim Crow isn’t just alive and well; he’s got friends in high places. George Crow is top dog in the White House, John Crow is Attorney General, and Trent Crow is in charge of the Senate.
Trifecta baby. Ain’t life grand? We have a murder of Crows running America.
Brace yourself, because we’re not done. Remember Harvey Pitt? The inside trader and accounting industry lobbyist for Arthur Anderson that Bush put in charge of cleaning up insider trading? After he tried to appoint a guy to head the Corporate SWAT team that was himself guilty of corporate malfeasance, he became an embarrassment and resigned.
His replacement is even more embarrassing. William Donaldson, the new head of the SEC, was the guy who headed the NYSE from ’90-’95… the period where the economic bubble was created on the NYSE and the NASDAQ.
William Donaldson has something else going for him. Like George Sr and George Jr, he’s a member of the Skull and Bones, class of ’53.
NOTHING is getting fixed people, until these bastards are dead or out of office, whichever comes first. They’ve spent 180 years bringing nothing but death and suffering through arms sales, drug sales, and war for profit. All they care about is creating a White Planet, because they fear a Black Planet.
We can expect a war in Iraq by February. Has anyone noticed that the pace of the bombing by the US and the UK in the so-called ‘no fly zone’ that ONLY the US and the UK recognize has stepped up? Iraq is being bombed almost daily.
They used this trick to try and force Kennedy to attack Castro, except this time it’s the White House ordering the baiting, not the Pentagon. The bombers are going to fly slower and lower, steeper and deeper, until they’re so close to Iraqi batteries that only a lone blind man could miss the target.
When the plane gets shot, Bush will use this as an excuse to invade Iraq, to ‘protect American lives’… just like dad did in Panama.
Unless some brave member of the Armed forces is willing to step forward and blow the whistle, we’re screwed. I keep hoping there’s another Daniel Ellsberg (the guy who leaked the Pentagon Papers on Vietnam) out there, but so far there’s nothing but cowardly silence from men who’ve sworn to DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Meanwhile on the home front, according to the FBI, murder is back to the all time high levels we saw in the 1980’s. In fact, ALL violent crimes of poverty are on the rise… robbery, muggings, gang violence, the works. But this has nothing to do with the fact that 3 million more people are out of work, with 6% official national unemployment.
It has nothing to do with 11% unemployment amongst Black people. It has nothing to do with the billions taken from welfare, unemployment, work-programs, homeless shelters, and food banks which was turned over to Boeing, Lockheed Martin, the airlines, and the Insurance companies.
Another wonderful stat from the FBI… infanticide, the killing of a child under 1 year old by its parents, is at an all time high, and nearly the same kill rate as that of teenagers. But this has nothing to do with Bush taking billions from work-assistance programs for single mothers. It’s Bin Laden’s fault, and Saddam’s fault.
Jutta Burghardt, formerly of the German government was right when she said Bush is taking a play straight out of Hitler’s playbook… warmongering is a great way to get people looking away from domestic insanity.
Never mind that the above is an oxymoron. It’s not nearly as moronic as this next bit of news. There are going to be two more Nimitz class aircraft carriers built before they move on to the next model. The first is the USS Ronald Reagan. The second was to be named the USS Lexington, in honor of the veterans who died on the original Lexington during WW II.
But since we have a Nazi in power, homage is instead being paid to a Nazi. The carrier’s name has been scratched, and instead, it’s being named the USS George H W Bush, after a man without whose father and friends WW II would not have been possible.
It’s being named after George H W Bush, a man who during WW II, as a bomber pilot, bailed out of his plane to safety while leaving his crew behind to die. Isn’t it supposed to be the other way round? That the pilot waits for the crew to bail out, and then bails or goes down with the plane? George Senior just bailed out, leaving behind men who counted on him to fly the plane.
And for this, he gets a multi-billion dollar aircraft named after him. They should just get it over with and call it the USS Jim Crow, with a big honking Swastika on the side.
TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Bush and Trent Lott made sure that unemployment benefits would be cut off for 830,000 poor jobless Americans on December 28, by stymieing a Democratic bill which would have extended the safety net for these people till May. They deliberately put them out in the cold for Christmas, and then went home to be with their own families for Christmas.
And the very next week, George W Bush announced that he was bringing back financial bonus packages for White House staffers… at the expense of the taxpayer, of course.
Which brings us to the updated 2002 version of the popular Christmas poem…
The Night Before Christmas 2002
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in the White House,
G Dubya was laughing, along with his spouse;
Cause Muslims were hanging like ducks in a row…
“Won’t daddy be proud of this wonderful show?”
The Bush kids were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of gas chambers danced in their heads;
And Barb in her ‘kerchief and dad with his sneer
Had brought blow for Junior to snort with his beer
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
They sprang from their beds to see what was the matter
Away to the window they ran like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,
But a crowd of the homeless, without blow or beer.
And a little old lady, with dirt in her hair;
They knew in a moment she was on welfare.
More rapid than eagles Secret Servicemen ran,
And threatened the homeless with time in the can…
“Now, sod off! Now, get lost! Now, piss off and shoo!
Begone scum! You’re pond scum! You all smell like poo!
Get away from us now, or hands on the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
“But we just want our jobs, and to ask what’s the deal…
Cause you cut off our welfare… do you know how we feel?
One million lose welfare on this Christmas year,
While Dubya pays bonus to those he holds dear”
And then, in a twinkling, they saw on the wall
A sniper with rifle take aim at them all
“Leave now you poor people, or you’ll force us to shoot!”
“But we’re dead broke in winter! To kill us is moot!”
They were dressed all in rags, their raiment in tatters;
“All we want is to tell you ‘bout what really matters…
Do you see what you’ve done to the poor and the weak?
All of this so Dick Cheney can wet his fat beak?”
Their eyes burned with fire, their lips taut with grief;
“All we ask is for Dubya to give some relief
To the millions of jobless and homeless and weak
That he’s put on the streets in the last hundred weeks”
Then out came G Dubya, all giggles and grins,
On his head was a crown fat as Richard Perle’s chin.
“Now, now, you poor people, please don’t be so mad,
I know times are tough, but this isn’t so bad…”
“It could be much worse”, said King George with a smirk
“I have presents for you, so don’t be such jerks.”
“Just to show that you’ve got a Fuhrer who cares,”
“Each of you gets options to buy Enron shares!”
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And pulled out his cocaine for a bump… what a jerk!
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a snort, and a Dictator pose;
He left for the House, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

Palestinians arrest al-Qaeda 'poseurs'
December 8 2002
Palestinian security forces have arrested a group of Palestinians for collaborating with Israel and posing as operatives of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network, a senior official said yesterday.
The arrests come two days after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon charged al-Qaeda militants were operating in Gaza and in Lebanon.
"The Palestinian Authority arrested a group of collaborators who confessed they were working for Israel, posing as al-Qaeda operatives in the Palestinian territories," said the official, on condition of anonymity.
He said the alleged collaborators sought to "discredit the Palestinian people, justify every Israeli crime and provide reasons to carry out a new (military) aggression in the Gaza Strip."
The official did not say how many suspects had been arrested, nor where or when they were nabbed.
Earlier, international cooperation minister Nabil Shaath announced he would hold a press conference here on the alleged presence of al-Qaeda operatives in the Gaza Strip.
Sharon's announcement marked the first time Israel officially claimed that al-Qaeda, held responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States, was operating in the Palestinian territories.
It was considered a surprise because the Gaza Strip is virtually sealed off by Israeli troops.
The hardline Israeli leader also charged other members of the terror group were cooperating with Lebanon's Shi'ite militia Hizbollah.
The Palestinians slammed the allegation as "totally absurd" and accused Sharon of trying to piggyback on the US-led "war against terrorism" to strengthen his military operations against militants in the territories.
Both the Lebanese government and Hizbollah made similar statements.
A US citizen of Syrian descent was arrested last month at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv on suspicion of transferring funds to terrorist organisations in general, and those connected to al-Qaeda in particular.
Three Israelis and 10 Kenyans were killed in a suicide attack on a hotel near the Kenyan port of Mombasa last Thursday, shortly after missiles narrowly missed an Israeli charter flight taking off from there with 261 passengers.
The attacks were purportedly claimed by al-Qaeda on an Islamic website.
Meanwhile, Israeli troops backed by tanks and helicopter gunships swept into the Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza Strip yesterday, sparking a gun battle and killing 10 people, Palestinian witnesses and medics said.
Army officials said the troops had met fierce resistance in the three-hour pre-dawn incursion, which it said was intended to root out militants responsible for attacks on troops in Gaza in a more than two-year Palestinian uprising for independence.

here's what busts my noggin:
why is the us breathing down on iraq over "suspected" weapons if north korea is known to have nuclear weapons, and has been caught red handed shipping scuds to yemen? am i taking crazy pills? does anyone else see how easy it is to construe this as an oil war? why haven't "investigative" reporters at least pondered this question. ridiculous, if this isn't a reason to doubt the mainstream media completely i don't know what is.
VOX COMMENT ANNOTATION: Precisely Mike! Mainstream "Investigative Journalists" are too busy licking the bootheels of George Bush to have the time to do any real investigations. The solution is not however to Doubt or Question the mainstream media - the solution is to abandon it and simply move the population over to the ONLY RELIABLE NEWS SOURCES ON THE PLANET, Independent Internet based trusted media sources, like www.voxnyc.com and www.whatreallyhappened.com.
But even if by some miracle every person suddenly ceased to watch the television and it was so obvious that not a single person in the world was watching it, it would take years before the tube would flicker out. That is the power of the lie - They would have program after program, rating after rating showing how "Popular" TV still was.

I think the Church is controlled at the highest levels by Secret societies, such as the Freemasons ... and that this call for the destruction of the Freemasons is simply a Machiavelliean trick. As we speak, Africa is being warmed up for their part in the coming world wide war ... observe the gradual increase in activity in and around South Africa ... Kenya, etc. IMO, this Freemason controversy is just designed to distract ...

These shadowy individuals that want to belong to this "cult" have been in one way or another diseminators of disinformation and its much more easier to prove cover-up than conspiracy.

Gee, with all the power and , I presume, money that the upper-level freemason seem to have, you'd think they could could spare a couple of dimes for some of the lodges that are dying for lack of memebers/funds.

Popeye, most blue lodges have been kept in the dark about the real purposes of freemasonry, these "poor" lodges have served their purpose as a "show army". Ever note the nice homes and automobiles of upper level masons/shriners etc.? They fooled their own too. Exactly as it was meant 2-B............

Finally, something on the Freemasons ("Mason"), the very suspect Jesuit Order has ever been associated with obsessive political/military intrigues, sex magic and the ritual performance of the "Black Mass" and "Black Pope" influence (and I don't mean color)-you can guess the rest...
The D.C. capitol is rife with "Mason" influenced/created architecture and symbols. The general public doesn't even know that secret societies have had, and continue to wield tremendous influence over our government, military and social structures.
The most powerful aspects of our government are ALL secret: CIA,FBI, NSC, NRO, etal--and the citizens are TOLD NOTHING about the inner workings of these agencies because of that lame excuse termed "National Security". How convenient for them, huh? Taxpayer money rolls in and they have absolutely NO ACCOUNTABILITY to answer to U.S. citizens. Appointing Henrey Kissinger to the so called "Independent" 9-11 investigation adds insult to the deaths and injuries of 9-11. It is all a show, and a poor presentation at that because they know that Americans will just keep accepting the lies-so why bother, anymore? Bush doesn't worry about re-election in 2004 - if need be, he can get "appointed" again, the cabal will see to it.

I'm with Temujin on that No-Fly Zone stuff.I think that they're going to either let Iraq finally,AFTER OVER A DECADE,shoot down a plane patrolling the NFZs (say Mav,could you fly your patrol AGAIN?And,uh,fly in a ZIGZAG pattern for me,'kay?),or blow up a drone and say Iraq shot it down "one of our boys",or,hell-why go through all that trouble? At this point,they could just SAY Iraq shot down a plane and have Ari Fleischer steeple his hands and say,"We KNOW Saddam is not to be believed...".They have to do SOMETHING to get this preplanned invasion started.Most Americans will believe anything "Their President"(sigh) says.They need to do it before the inspections are done,because they know they won't find anything.They've already let about 3,000 people die and took out two of the tallest buildings in the world (amazing how they both came down pretty much in their own footprint,isn't it?)for their plans;what's another pilot or two?

everyone should be made aware of the --possible, make that probable link between the deaths of all those top microbiologists about a year ago and the (timing fits) introduction of the smallpox vaccine. Which by the way you can object to on religious grounds. Arm yourself with the appropriate legal information.
Secondly, see http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/cafr1/CAFR.html for the real truth about government debt- they're rolling in it at every level of government and are still crying poor to screw you even more by putting up taxes.

The whole thing about North Korea shipping scuds has a fishy smell to it. It's hard to believe that a nation recently caught violating their side of an agreement concerning nuclear weapons would leave themselves so wide open, until you hear the spin that's being put on the story. Then things begin making sense.
Over the course of the day this story went from a shipment of scud missles being smuggled by a North Korean vessel to destinations unknown (but probably Iraq according to NPR–isn't everything going Iraq thse days according to the mainstream) had been intercepted by a Spanish warship. As the vessel was in violation of International Law for flying no flag and by having covered it's name boarding, along with search and seizure of any illegal goods was in order. Several well concealed missles were found and seized as they construed a direct violation of North Korea's part of an agreement pertaining to development of nuclear weapons. At that point all that remained was to determine their destination.
Skip ahead a few hours and an admission from the Yemen government comes up along with a lot of mumbo jumbo (which we're supposed to look on as legal expertise hard at work) pointing to the possibility that there may have been no laws broken.
Later we are assured that this entire thing was completely legal (even though the missles had been concealed as if being smuggled and the ship in question had been in violation of International Law at the time it was boarded), that no act of aggression has been committed, and that North Korea is still a world citizen in good standing with the International community. We are also informed that since International Law has not been broken and since the Bush administration respects International Law (except when bombing the hell out of Iraq, but that of course, wasn't mentioned) the friendly scud smugglers are free to go their merry way.
What a way to paint a picture of oneself as a staunch and trustworthy guardian of International Law. They may be hoping to give all of the unfounded claims of weapons programs a (much needed) shot of credibility. After all, such "trustworthy and stalwart guardians of International Law" wouldn't lie to anybody would they now.
It's so sad it's almost funny.

Oh America relax!! Put yourself in a Palestinians shoe's for one day.
"...Arab hostility toward the United States is also certain to intensify if American efforts to promote the resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict should prove to be a failure. When the Middle East was the object of rivalry by two competing superpowers, American support of Israel could be viewed as a necessary expression of American self-interest as well as an act of moral obligation toward the Jewish people. But in the era of one-sided American preponderance, an American failure to promote a peaceful termination of the Arab-Israeli conflict is likely to facilitate the mobilization of religous fundamentalism and nationalist radicalism against continued American regional supremacy.
Thus, though in different ways, for Russia and America the geo-political vacuum may become a dangerous whirlpool. The political awakening of Islam is generating not only a collision with residual Russian imperialism in the north but in time is also likely to contest American domination in the South. The former will not be able to disengage, because of its settlers and because it will feel bound to contest the intrusion into Central Asia of southern Muslim states; and the latter-while also risking intensifying hostility-it will not be able to disengage because of its interest in OIL and its sense of MORAL OBLIGATION TO ISRAEL."

GEORGE WASHINGTON'S CORRESPONDENCE
Did George Washington Tell a Lie?
The evidence of George Washington's Masonic affiliation has been most troublesome for multitudes of Christians who have been influenced by the writings of Peter Marshall, D. James Kennedy and David Barton. At the risk of belaboring the issue, we are compelled to post the prima facie evidence of this matter.
The Library of Congress contains the George Washington Papers, which may be viewed online. A search inquiry yielded archives which contain actual photographs of original documents either written to or by Washington. The reader may view these documents in their original form, which we have also transcribed for easier reading, certain of which demonstrate Washington's close ties to Freemasonry.
Although Washington's correspondence with the Masonic Lodges is replete with Masonic references to the Great Architect of the Universe, his response to a Christian clergyman conspicuously avoids mention of Jesus Christ or acknowledgement of personal Christian faith.

(Accompanied with gift of Masonic "Book of Constitutions" probably modeled upon the "Constitutions," the Masonic bible printed in 1734 by Benjamin Franklin and the first Masonic book published in America)
Whilst the Historian is describing the career of your glory, and the inhabitants of an extensive Empire are made happy in your unexampled exertions:-- whilst some celebrate the Hero so distinguished in liberating United America and others the Patriot who presides over her Councils, a band of brothers having always joined the acclamations of their Countrymen, now intensify their respect for those milder virtues which have ever graced the man.
Taught by the precepts of our Society, that all its members stand upon a level, we venture to assume this station and to approach you with that freedom which diminishes our differences without lessening our respect. Desirous to enlarge the boundaries of our social happiness, and to vindicate the ceremonies of their institution, this Grand Lodge have published a "Book of Constitutions," (and a copy for your acceptance accompanies this) which by discovering the principles that actuate will speak the Eulogy of the Society; though they fervently wish the conduct of its members may prove its higher commendation.
Convinced of his attachment to its cause, and readiness to encourage its benevolent designs; they have taken the liberty to dedicate this work to one, the qualities of whose heart and the actions of whole life have contributed to improve personal virtue, and extend throughout the world the most endearing cordialities, and they humbly hope he will pardon this freedom and accept the tribute of their esteem & homage. May the Supreme Architect of the Universe bless and protect you -- give you length of days & increase of felicity in this world, and then receive you to the harmonious and exalted city in Heaven.
John Cutter, Grand Master
Josiah Bartlett, Munso Mackey - Grand Wardens

Letter George Washington to Massachusetts Masons Grand Lodge, December 27, 1792. (Appreciation for the honor, dedication and gift of "Book of Constitutions")
To the Grand Master of the Free & Accepted Masons, for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Flattering as it may be to the human mind, & truly honorable as it is to receive from our fellow citizens testimonies of approbation for exertions to promote the public welfare; it is not less pleasing to know that the milder virtues of the heart are highly respected by a society whose liberal principles must be founded in the immediate laws of truth and justice. To enlarge the sphere of social happiness is worthy the benevolent design of the Masonic Institution; and it is most fervently to be wished, that the conduct of every member of the fraternity, as well as those publications which discover the principles which actuate them may tend to convince Mankind that the grand object of Masonry is to promote the happiness of the human race.
While I beg your acceptance of my thanks for the "Book of Constitutions" you have sent me, and the honor you have done me in the dedication, permit me to assure you that I feel all those emotions of gratitude which your affectionate address & cordial wishes are calculated to inspire: and I sincerely pray that the Great Architect of the Universe may bless you and receive you hereafter into his immortal Temple.
Washington Denies Masonic Membership
Among the correspondence of George Washington, are letters from a gentleman by the name of George Washington Snyder, who sent to the President a copy of John Robison's Proofs of a Conspiracy Against All the Religions and Governments of Europe (New York: George Forman, 1798; reprint edition, Boston: Western Islands, 1967). This classic volume revealed the Illuminist plan, through the agency of Freemasonry, for the overthrow of established governments and religions. Mr. Snyder apparently questioned the propriety of the President's membership and position as Grand Master of the Alexandria Lodge No. 22 of Virginia.
In two letters to Mr. Snyder, President Washington greatly dissembled on the issue, denying his Masonic membership and also the design of American Masonic societies to promote the Illuminati conspiracy.

[Note 7: Of Fredericktown (now Frederick), Md.]
Mount Vernon, September 25, 1798.
Sir: Many apologies are due to you, for my not acknowledging the receipt of your obliging favour of the 22d. Ulto, and for not thanking you, at an earlier period, for the Book 8 you had the goodness to send me.
[Note 8: Proofs of a Conspiracy &c, by John Robison.]
I have heard much of the nefarious, and dangerous plan, and doctrines of the Illuminati, but never saw the Book until you were pleased to send it to me.9 The same causes which have prevented my acknowledging the receipt of your letter have prevented my reading the Book, hitherto; namely, the multiplicity of matters which pressed upon me before, and the debilitated state in which I was left after, a severe fever had been removed. And which allows me to add little more now, than thanks for your kind wishes and favourable sentiments, except to correct an error you have run into, of my Presiding over the English lodges in this Country. The fact is, I preside over none, nor have I been in one more than once or twice, within the last thirty years. I believe notwithstanding, that none of the Lodges in this Country are contaminated with the principles ascribed to the Society of the Illuminati. With respect I am &c.
[Note 9: In a letter from Snyder (Aug. 22, 1798, which is in the Washington Papers), it is stated that this book "gives a full Account of a Society of Free-Masons, that distinguishes itself by the Name of 'Illuminati,' whose Plan is to overturn all Government and all Religion, even natural."]
In the preceding letter, George Washington wrote to his correspondent that he wished "to correct an error you have run into, of my Presiding over the English lodges in this Country. The fact is, I preside over none, nor have I been in one more than once or twice, within the last thirty years."
Compare with the following excerpts from George Washington, Victory with the Help of France Volume VI, Douglas Freeman, Scribners, 1952, p. 92.
"In a spirit of goodwill Washington attended the masonic ceremonial and then marched with his fellow craft to Christ's Church in celebration of the anniversary of St. John the Evangelist."
Penn Packet January 1779
"This is the first masonic meeting for which the specific date and place of Washington's attendance during the Revolution have been observed in the present research."
Washington Defends Freemasonry
Letter of George Washington to George Washington Snyder, October 24, 1798
The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources, 1745-1799.
John C. Fitzpatrick, Editor.--vol. 36
Mount Vernon, October 24, 1798.
Revd Sir: I have your favor of the 17th. instant before me; and my only motive to trouble you with the receipt of this letter, is to explain, and correct a mistake which I perceive the hurry in which I am obliged, often, to write letters, have led you into.
It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am.
The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a seperation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.
My occupations are such, that but little leisure is allowed me to read News Papers, or Books of any kind; the reading of letters, and preparing answers, absorb much of my time. With respect, etc.
No Mention of Jesus Christ
The following is an address from a Christian Church in Baltimore to George Washington. Note the minister's praise of "the Lord Jesus, whom alone we acknowledge as 'the true God & eternal Life.'" George Washington's response contains references to God and an "over-ruling Providence." Conspicuously absent, however, is any acknowledgement of Jesus Christ.
An Address from the New Church at Baltimore, To George Washington, Esquire
While the Nations of the Earth, and the people of United America especially, have in their various denominations paid their tribute to the respectful deference to the illustrious President thereof, permit, for a Society however small in number, yet sincere they trust, in their attachment to offer up in the dawn of their institution, that mark of dutiful esteem which will become the new associations, to the Chief Magistrate of America.
We presume not, Sir, to enter into a reiterated panegyric of matchless virtues or exalted character, but assuming causes with effects, we are led to believe that you were a chosen vessel for great Salutary purposes, and that both in your actions and in your conduct, you justly stand one of the first disinterested and exemplary men upon earth. Neither in this address can we, was it expected, enter into a detail of the profession of our faith; but we are free to declare that we feel ourselves among the number of those who have occasion to rejoice that the word literally is spiritually fulfilling; that a new and glorious dispensation or fresh manifestation of Divine Love hath commenced in our Land; when as there is but one Lord, so is his name becoming one throughout the earth; & that the power of Light or truth and righteousness is in an eminent Degree, universally prevailing, and even triumphing over the powers of Darkness; when Priestcraft & Kingcraft, those banes of human felicity, are hiding their diminished heads, and equality in State, as well as in Church, proportionally to mind, are considered the true criterion of the majesty of the people. -- Oh! Sir, could we, without being charged with adulation, pour out the fullness of our souls to the enlightened conduct of him who stands chief among the foremost of men, what a volume of truth might we deservedly offer to the name of Washington, on the altar of Liberty uncircumscribed! Allow us, by the first opportunity, to present to your Excellency, among other Tracts, the Compendium of the New Church, signified by the New Jerusalem, as the readiest mean to furnish you with a just idea of the Heavenly Doctrines.
That the Lord Jesus, whom alone we acknowledge as "the true God & eternal Life," will preserve you long to reign in the hearts of the people, and lastly to shine as a gem of the brightest lustre, a Star of the first magnitude of the unfading mansions above, is the fervent aspiration of your faithful citizens and affectionate Brethren. Done in behalf of the members of the Lord's New Church at Baltimore, this 22d Day of January 1793 -- 37.
To the members of the New Church at Baltimore.
It has ever been my pride to mind the approbation of my fellow citizens by a faithful and honest discharge of the duties annexed to those Stations to which they have pledged to place me; and the dearest rewards of my Services have been those testimonies of esteem and confidence with which they have honored me. But to the manifest interpretation of an over-ruling Providence, and to the patriotic exertions of United America, are to be ascribed those events which have given us a respectable rank among the nations of the earth. --
We have abundant reason to rejoice that in this land the light of truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and superstion (sic) and that every person may here worship God according to the dictates of his own heart. In this enlightened Age & in this Land of equal liberty it is our boast, that a man's religious tenets, will not forfeit his protection of the Laws, nor deprive him of the right of attaining & holding the highest offices that are known in the United States.
Your Prayers for my present and future felicity were received with gratitude; and I sincerely wish, Gentlemen, that you may in your social and individual capacities, taste those blessings which a gracious God bestows upon the Righteous.

We deal with the international conspiracy to unify the world's religions, governments and money system into one. This global system will be controlled at the top by the elite powermongers which consist of the international bankers , occult leaders, religious leaders and political leaders who are already in power. This occult masterplan which has been planned for centuries is most well known under the name "New World Order".
Their wicked plan will effect every individual on Earth as they plan to enslave humanity under their firm grip. To most these statements will sound ludicrous but I challenge you to read through the material I have put together and make an intelligent decision as to what you yourself will do in the not too distant future.
One of the most powerful factors in this plan include the fact that most of these eliteists are high level Freemasons, most commonly 33rd Degree Masons. Many of these Masons have been groomed to infiltrate and control the world's political, religious and economic institutions in order to establish the "New World Order". As I will document in this site you will see that this 'Mandate to Infiltrate' has been totally sucessful. Before I go on I will make a short list of Masons to prove my point : -
Bill Clinton, 33rd Degree Freemason, President of the United States Of America.
Newt Gingrich, Bob Dole, Jack Kemp, Storm Thurmond, Al Gore, Colin Powell, Jesse Helms, Barry Goldwater and many others in American Congress are all 33rd Degree Freemasons.
George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and George Bush were all Masonic Presidents of the U.S.A. All this evidence will be fully documented in my "Masonic Conspiracy" page. (when completed)
Other leaders include:- King Hussein, Yitzak Rabin (now deceased), Yassar Arafat, Prince Phillip, Duke of Kent as well as many others.
Billy Graham, World's most popular 'Christian' evangelist is a 33rd Degree Freemason.
Norman Vincent Peale, 33rd Degree Freemason, ex Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of New York, Past Grand Prelate of the Knights Templar and Shriner. (now deceased)
Robert Schuller, 33rd Degree Freemason, Pastor of the Crystal Cathedral and host of the popular "Hour of Power" television programme.
Oral Roberts, 33rd Degree Freemason, founder of Oral Roberts University.
Jesse Jackson, 33rd Degree Prince Hall Freemason
Most of the early founding Mormons such as Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, Sidney Rigdon and latter Mormons such as Spencer Kimball were all high level Freemasons. The founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses, Charles Taze Russell was also a 33rd Degree Mason.
Two of the World's largest international banking dynasties namely the Rothschilds and the Rockefeller family are both Masonic families. Their combined wealth is incalculable. (much more research is in progress and this list will be added to)
Leaders and Founders of Satanic Cults
Aliester Crowley, 33rd & 97th Degree Freemason, self proclaimed 666 Beast, taught human sacrafice, wicked Satan worshipper and master satanist of this century.
Gerald B. Gardner, founder of the modern Wiccan (white witchcraft) revival.
Dr. Wynn Westcott, member of the Societas Rosicruciana and founding member of the occult Order of the Golden Dawn.
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, female co-freemason, wicked satanist, occult leader and co-founder of the Theosophical Society. Wrote occult classics entitled 'The Secret Doctrine' and 'Isis Unveiled' which state "It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God. Lucifer represents...Life...Thought...Progress...Civilization...Liberty...Independance...Lucifer is the Logos...the Serpent, the Savior". I have recieved evidence that this book is issued inside Masonic Lodge libraries and is being read by Masons and will present the proof soon.
Many, many more satanic leaders. I will fill in more details at a later date. You will come to see that the most powerful and evil satanic cults were all founded by high level Freemasons.
This is only a small listing but I hope it will present to you a picture of the Masonic Control of our world. They are in every sector of society today. What I want to clarify is that many Masons do not know about this conspiracy. It is being plotted and run by the elite people in the lodge and many Masons are totally unaware of this. If you are a Mason then please read my article "Do Freemasons Worship Lucifer/Satan" (under construction). Please visit this site often as it will be updated reguarly.

American Masonic History
What Are America's True Roots?*
There is much speculation on the religious nature of the United States of America as it was founded. Many Christians assert that the United States was founded as a Christian nation and, therefore, it is not only our right but our duty to reclaim it for God. But is America a Christian nation in the true sense of the word?
To call anyone or anything "Christian," whether an individual or a nation, certain criteria must be met. If we are speaking of an individual, the Biblical requirements are that he must be born again by the Spirit of God, understanding all that this entails.
If we are speaking of a nation, its purpose must be that of ministry in the name of Jesus Christ alone, without regard to any other gods. Its primary charter must be the Bible, and all who hold positions of authority must be individuals who meet the criteria necessary to call themselves Christians. A true Christian nation would be a theocracy governed by God through His prophets. His law would reign supreme in the hearts and minds of that nation's founders, and all who founded the nation would have to meet the criteria necessary to call themselves Christians. Just as important, the nation would have to have been created in response to a covenant initiated by God with those who founded it.
As a point of information, the Pilgrims did not found the United States; they founded a small colony that eventually got swallowed up by the states and the newly formed federal government.
The belief that the Mayflower Compact was the basis for a Christian nation has caused many to attempt to reestablish what never existed: a Christian nation based upon Biblical precepts and founded upon a covenant relationship with God. What is overlooked is that the Mayflower Compact reaffirmed loyalty to the King of England; its framers never intended to found an independent state.
Ignoring, and even twisting the facts of history, "Christian" dominionists quote some of the founding fathers whose words seem to indicate faith in Jesus Christ. But many quoted were Freemasons who highly regarded Jesus as a man who attained the highest degree of moral enlightenment.
The words of many Freemasons might lead the uninformed to believe that they are true brethren in Christ. An example is this statement from a Masonic publication:
God may have other words for other worlds, but His supreme Word for this world, yesterday, today, forever, is Christ! He is the central Figure of the Bible, its crown, its glory, its glow-point of vision and revelation. Take Him away and its light grows dim. He fulfilled the whole Book, its history, its poetry, its prophecy, its ritual, even as He fulfills our deepest yearning and our highest hope. Ages have come and gone, but He abides-abides because He is real, because he is unexhausted, because He is needed. Little is left today save Christ-Himself smitten and afflicted, bruised of God and wounded-but He is all we need. If we hear Him, follow Him, obey Him, we shall walk together in a new world wherein dwelleth righteousness and love-He is the Word of God (Joseph Fort Newton, "The Great Light in Masonry," Little Masonic Library, Vol. 3, p. 177).
Unless we recognize that the theosophical philosophy of Freemasonry attributes its own definitions to Biblical language, we won't understand the author's meaning. We might welcome him as one of our own.
Only the most naive would not know that many who claim to be Christians do not meet the required criteria. Such is the case with Freemasons. While Freemasonry has an outward show of religious faith, the tenets of Freemasonry preclude any truly born-again believer from belonging.
Space doesn't allow for a full treatise on Freemasonry's religious philosophy, but true Christians will recognize from another statement in the same publication that the Faith is not compatible with Freemasonry:
Into Freemasonry have been poured the irradiations of the mystical schools of antiquity. Particularly is this so in the higher degrees of the Order, such as the Scottish Rite, where undeniable traces of Cabalism, neo-Platonism, Rosicrucianism, and other mystical cults are plainly discernible. I do personally contend that Freemasonry is the direct descendent of the Mysteries, but that our ritual makers of the higher degrees have copied the ancient ceremonies of initiation so far as the knowledge of those ceremonies exists (Henry R. Evans, A History of the York and Scottish Rites of Freemasonry, p. 8).
Because most Christians today are unaware of the manner in which Christianity was melded with the esoteric philosophies of theosophy and Jewish Cabalism to produce a hybrid mystery religion known as Freemasonry, they offer quotes from many of our founding fathers as evidence that they were Christians. Indeed, some were even clerics. But just as one of today's most famous clerics, Norman Vincent Peale, was a Freemason (prelate of the Grand Encampment of the Knights Templar of the United States), many of the nation's founding fathers were also Freemasons who used peculiar definitions of Biblical language in asserting their beliefs.
This is not to say that they were not noble men. Freemasons pride themselves in their noble attitudes and adherence to strict moral codes. These are not "evil" men in the classical sense. But they are blinded to the true revelation of God's Word, and their religious philosophy embraces all religions as valid. To be a Freemason, one must believe in a supreme being, but he need not be a Christian.
Based upon the evidence of Masonic influences in the establishment of this nation, there is no doubt that the criteria necessary to classify the United States as a Christian nation were not met. An objective study of the Masonic affiliations of the founding fathers must cause Christians to reevaluate their own political philosophy. For if the United States is not a Christian nation then we must choose to whom we will commit "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor" -- our Lord or our country.
20 GREATEST NAMES OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
John Adams - Spoke favorably of Freemasonry -- never joined
Samuel Adams - (Close and principle associate of Hancock, Revere & other Masons
Ethan Allen - Mason
Edmund Burke - Mason
John Claypoole - Mason
William Daws - Mason
Benjamin Franklin - Mason
Nathan Hale - No evidence of Masonic connections
John Hancock - Mason
Benjamin Harrison - No evidence of Masonic connections
Patrick Henry - No evidence of Masonic connections
Thomas Jefferson - Deist with some evidence of Masonic connections
John Paul Jones - Mason
Francis Scott Key - No evidence of Masonic connections
Robert Livingston - Mason
James Madison - Some evidence of Masonic membership
Thomas Paine - Humanist
Paul Revere - Mason
Colonel Benjamin Tupper - Mason
George Washington - Mason
Daniel Webster - Some evidence of Masonic connections
Summary: 10 Masons, 3 probable Masons, 1 Humanist, 2 Advocates of Freemasonry, 4 no record of connections.
SIGNERS OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
Known Masons (8): Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, Joseph Hewes, William Hooper, Robert Treat Payne, Richard Stockton, George Walton, William Whipple
Evidence of Membership And/or Affiliations (7): Elbridge Berry, Lyman Hall, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Nelson Jr., John Penn, George Read, Roger Sherman
Summary: 15 of 56 Signers were Freemasons or probable Freemasons.
It's true that this represents only 27% of the total signers. But this 27% included the principle movers of the Revolution, most notably Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, the primary authors of the Declaration. The former was a Freemason, the latter a deist and possible Freemason. If one were to analyze the Declaration, he would see the humanistic influences.
In any event, there is no evidence that even 27% of the signers were true Christians. In considering whether or not this is a Christian nation, it isn't the number of Masons that is as important as is the number of founders overall who were non-believers.
SIGNERS OF THE CONSTITUTION
Known Masons (9): Gunning Bedford, Jr., John Blair, David Brearly, Jacob Broom, Daniel Carrol, John Dickinson, Benjamin Franklin, Rufus King, George Washington
Evidence of Membership And/or Affiliations (13): Abraham Baldwin, William Blount, Elbridge Gerry, Nicholas Gilman, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, John Lansing, Jr., James Madison, George Mason, George Read, Robert Morris, Roger Sherman, George Wythe
Those Who Later Became Masons (6): William Richardson Davie, Jr., Jonathan Dayton, Dr. James McHenry, John Francis Mercer, William Patterson, Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer
Summary: 28 of 40 signers were Freemasons or possible Freemasons based on evidence other than Lodge records.
MASONIC INFLUENCES IN EARLY AMERICAN HISTORY
- Lafayette, French liaison to the Colonies, without whose aid the war could not have been won, was a Freemason.
- The majority of the commanders of the Continental Army were Freemasons and members of "Army Lodges."
- Most of Washington's Generals were Freemasons.
- The Boston Tea Party was planned at the Green Dragon Tavern, also known as the "Freemasons' Arms," and "the Headquarters of the Revolution."
- George Washington was sworn in as the first President of the United States by Robert Livingston, Grand Master of New York's Masonic Lodge. The Bible on which he took his oath was from his own Masonic lodge.
- The Cornerstone of the Capital building was laid by the Grand Lodge of Maryland.
Even if the initiators of the Revolution had been Christians, the fact remains that the Revolutionary War and the nation's government were structured by the tenets of Freemasonry, not God's Word. It was an unholy alliance at best.

The Great Inverted Pentagram of Washington DC
"I'll spare you assorted conjecture on why the designers of this city decided to place Masonic symbolism all across the landscape on a scale that can be seen from space. Just take a look." (15)
Masonic Symbols of Power in Their Seat of Power - Washington, D.C.
This very important observation which explains the obsessive preoccupation with occult symbolism among practitioners of witchcraft.
"Occultists the world over believe that, once a symbol is created, it acquires power of its own, and more power is generated when such symbol(s) are created without the profane [uninitiated] knowing about it. And, the greatest power of all is created in the symbol(s) if the uninitiated NEVER discover that the symbol exists. In this article, we shall demonstrate positive proofs of conspiracy to achieve the ends of Freemasonry, i.e., achieving the New World Order. And, these proofs exist right under your eyes, in Washington, D.C., the Capital district...
"Remember, occult leaders in Europe were told by their Familiar Spirits as early as the 1740's that the new American continent was to be established as the new "Atlantis", and its destiny was to assume the global leadership of the drive to the New World Order. From the beginning, the United States of America was chosen to lead the world into this kingdom of Antichrist, and Washington, D.C. was to be its capital." (16)
Government Center was Created in 1792 as a Capitol Dedicated to Masonry
"As you can see, your Founding Fathers who were Freemasons, intended from the beginning, that Washington, D.C., Government Center, was to be established as a Freemason Capitol. They intended that Freemasons would determine the political and spiritual direction of the infant United States of America. This direction was to be toward their New World Order. We are now very, very close to this goal today. Thus, our seeds of destruction were sown by our Founding Fathers without anyone else knowing about it! This fulfills the stated objective of Albert Pike in his book, "Morals and Dogma", hiding the truth from the "Profane" while revealing it to the "Elect". The arrogance of this statement is beyond my comprehension!!
"As we revealed in FREE01, the true center of spiritual and political power resides only in the Freemason Temple of Understanding, located 13 blocks north of the White House, and directly in line with the massive obelisk known as the Washington Monument. Occultists believe that the spirit of the Sun God "Ra" indwells the obelisk, and that the "Elect" must bow down before it twice to three times daily. Thus, the Washington Monument, the obelisk, is in direct line with the Congress to its East, and with the Freemason Temple directly North. The White House is not in direct line with the obelisk, which is very revealing as to the planned center of power.
"Freemasons intended that the center of power would be the Temple of Understanding, not the White House!! Thus, they located the Temple due North of the obelisk! We hope you understand now that the spirit of Freemasonry has been guiding our nation's direction ever since 1776, and that this guidance was solidified in 1792 by incorporating Freemasonry symbols into the very street structure of Government Center. The importance of our discovery of these maps is that we found them on a Freemason Web Site, http://www.eskimo.com/~daylight/. The fact that we found these maps on a Freemason site PROVES beyond a shadow of a doubt that the intent of L'Enfante and our Founding Fathers, from the beginning of our country, was to deliberately design Government Center according to Freemasonry principles."

The Crown Temple
by Rule of Mystery Babylon
The Templars of the Crown
The governmental and judicial systems within the United States of America, at both federal and local state levels, is owned by the “Crown,” which is a private foreign power. Before jumping to conclusions about the Queen of England or the Royal Families of Britain owning the U.S.A., this is a different “Crown” and is fully exposed and explained below. We are specifically referencing the established Templar Church, known for centuries by the world as the “Crown.” From this point on, we will also refer to the Crown as the Crown Temple or Crown Templar, all three being synonymous.
First, a little historical background. The Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar in two parts: the Round and the Chancel. The Round Church was consecrated in 1185 and modeled after the circular Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The Chancel was built in 1240. The Temple Church serves both the Inner and Middle Temples (see below) and is located between Fleet Street and Victoria Embankment at the Thames River. Its grounds also house the Crown Offices at Crown Office Row. This Temple “Church” is outside any Canonical jurisdiction. The Master of the Temple is appointed and takes his place by sealed (non-public) patent, without induction or institution.
All licensed Bar Attorneys - Attorners (see definitions below) – in the U.S. owe their allegiance and give their solemn oath in pledge to the Crown Temple, realizing this or not. This is simply due to the fact that all Bar Associations throughout the world are signatories and franchises to the international Bar Association located at the Inns of Court at Crown Temple, which are physically located at Chancery Lane behind Fleet Street in London. Although they vehemently deny it, all Bar Associations in the U.S., such as the American Bar Association, the Florida Bar, or California Bar Association, are franchises to the Crown.
The Inns of Court (see below, The Four Inns of Court) to the Crown Temple use the Banking and Judicial system of the City of London - a sovereign and independent territory which is not a part of Great Britain (just as Washington City, as DC was called in the 1800’s, is not a part of the north American states, nor is it a state) to defraud, coerce, and manipulate the American people. These Fleet Street bankers and lawyers are committing crimes in America under the guise and color of law (see definitions for legal and lawful below). They are known collectively as the “Crown.” Their lawyers are actually Templar Bar Attornies, not lawyers.
The present Queen of England is not the “Crown,” as we have all been led to believe. Rather, it is the Bankers and Attornies (Attorneys) who are the actual Crown or Crown Temple. The Monarch aristocrats of England have not been ruling sovereigns since the reign of King John, circa 1215. All royal sovereignty of the old British Crown since that time has passed to the Crown Temple in Chancery.
The U.S.A. is not the free and sovereign nation that our federal government tells us it is. If this were true, we would not be dictated to by the Crown Temple through its bankers and attornies. The U.S.A. is controlled and manipulated by this private foreign power and our unlawful Federal U.S. Government is their pawn broker. The bankers and Bar Attorneys in the U.S.A. are a franchise in oath and allegiance to the Crown at Chancery - the Crown Temple Church and its Chancel located at Chancery Lane - a manipulative body of elite bankers and attorners from the independent City of London who violate the law in America by imposing fraudulent “legal” - but totally unlawful - contracts on the American people. The banks Rule the Temple Church and the Attorners carry out their Orders by controlling their victim’s judiciary.
Since the first Chancel of the Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar, this is not a new ruling system by any means. The Chancel, or Chancery, of the Crown Inner Temple Court was where King John was, in January 1215, when the English barons demanded that he confirm the rights enshrined in the Magna Carta. This City of London Temple was the headquarters of the Templar Knights in Great Britain where Order and Rule were first made, which became known as Code. Remember all these terms, such as Crown, Temple, Templar, Knight, Chancel, Chancery, Court, Code, Order and Rule as we tie together their origins with the present American Temple Bar system of thievery by equity (chancery) contracts.
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.”
By what authority has the “Crown” usurped the natural sovereignty of the American people? Is it acceptable that the U.S. Supreme Court decides constitutional issues in the U.S.A? How can it be considered in any manner as being “constitutional” when this same Supreme Court is appointed by (not elected) and paid by the Federal U.S. Government? As you will soon see, the land called North America belongs to the Crown Temple.
The legal system (judiciary) of the U.S.A. is controlled by the Crown Temple from the independent and sovereign City of London. The private Federal Reserve System, which issues fiat U.S. Federal Reserve Notes, is financially owned and controlled by the Crown from Switzerland, the home and legal origin for the charters of the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, and most importantly, the Bank of International Settlements. Even Hitler respected his Crown bankers by not bombing Switzerland. The Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland controls all the central banks of the G7 nations. He who controls the gold rules the world.

The Four Inns of Court to the unholy Temple
Globally, all the legalistic scams promoted by the exclusive monopoly of the Temple Bar and their Bar Association franchises come from four Inns or Temples of Court: the Inner Temple, the Middle Temple, Lincoln's Inn, and Gray's Inn. These Inns/Temples are exclusive and private country clubs; secret societies of world power in commerce. They are well established, some having been founded in the early 1200’s. The Queen and Queen Mother of England are current members of both the Inner Temple and Middle Temple. Gray’s Inn specializes in Taxation legalities by Rule and Code for the Crown. Lincoln’s Inn received its name from the Third Earl of Lincoln (circa 1300).
Just like all U.S. based franchise Bar Associations, none of the Four Inns of the Temple are incorporated - for a definite and purposeful reason: You can’t make claim against a non-entity and a non-being. They are private societies without charters or statutes, and their so-called constitutions are based solely on custom and self-regulation. In other words, they exist as secret societies without a public “front door” unless you’re a private member called to their Bar.
While the Inner Temple holds the legal system franchise by license to steal from Canada and Great Britain, it is the Middle Temple that has legal license to steal from America. This comes about directly via their Bar Association franchises to the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple through the Crown Temple.
From THE HISTORY OF THE INN, Later Centuries, [p.6], written by the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, we can see a direct tie to the Bar Association franchises and its Crown signatories in America:
“Call to the Bar or keeping terms in one of the four Inns a pre-requisite to Call at King's Inns until late in the 19th century. In the 17th and 18th centuries, students came from the American colonies and from many of the West Indian islands. The Inn's records would lead one to suppose that for a time there was hardly a young gentleman in Charleston who had not studied here. Five of the signatories to the Declaration of Independence were Middle Templars, and notwithstanding it and its consequences, Americans continued to come here until the War of 1812”.
All Bar Association licensed Attorneys must keep the terms of their oath to the Crown Temple in order to be accepted or “called to Bar” at any of the King’s Inns. Their oath, pledge, and terms of allegiance are made to the Crown Temple.
It’s a real eye opener to know that the Middle Inn of the Crown Temple has publicly acknowledged there were at least five Templar Bar Attornies, under solemn oath only to the Crown, who signed what was alleged to be an American Declaration of Independence. This simply means that both parties to the Declaration agreement were of the same origin, the Crown Temple. In case you don’t understand the importance of this, there is no international agreement or treaty that will ever be honored, or will ever have lawful effect, when the same party signs as both the first and second parties. It’s merely a worthless piece of paper with no lawful authority when both sides to any agreement are actually the same. In reality, the American Declaration of Independence was nothing more than an internal memo of the Crown Temple made among its private members.
By example, Alexander Hamilton was one of those numerous Crown Templars who was called to their Bar. In 1774, he entered King's College in New York City, which was funded by members of the London King’s Inns, now named Columbia University. In 1777, he became a personal aide and private secretary to George Washington during the American Revolution.
In May of 1782, Hamilton began studying law in Albany, New York, and within six months had completed a three year course of studies, passed his examinations, and was admitted to the New York Bar. Of course, the New York Bar Association was/is a franchise of the Crown Temple through the Middle Inn. After a year's service in Congress during the 1782-1783 session, he settled down to legal practice in New York City as Alexander Hamilton, Esqr. In February of 1784, he wrote the charter for, and became a founding member of, the Bank of New York, the State's first bank.
He secured a place on the New York delegation to the Federal Convention of 1787 at Philadelphia. In a five hour speech on June 18th, he stated “an Executive for life will be an elective Monarch”. When all his anti-Federalist New York colleagues withdrew from the Convention in protest, he alone signed the Constitution for the United States of America representing New York State, one of the legal Crown States (Colonies).
One should particularly notice that a lawful state is made up of the people, but a State is a legal entity of the Crown - a Crown Colony. This is an example of the deceptive ways the Crown Temple - Middle Templars - have taken control of America since the beginning of our settlements.
Later, as President Washington’s U.S. Treasury Secretary, Hamilton alone laid the foundation of the first Federal U.S. Central Bank, secured credit loans through Crown banks in France and the Netherlands, and increased the power of the Federal Government over the hoodwinked nation-states of the Union. Hamilton had never made a secret of the fact that he admired the government and fiscal policies of Great Britain.
Americans were fooled into believing that the legal Crown Colonies comprising New England were independent nation states, but they never were nor are today. They were and still are Colonies of the Crown Temple, through letters patent and charters, who have no legal authority to be independent from the Rule and Order of the Crown Temple. A legal State is a Crown Temple Colony.
Neither the American people nor the Queen of Britain own America. The Crown Temple owns America through the deception of those who have sworn their allegiance by oath to the Middle Templar Bar. The Crown Bankers and their Middle Templar Attornies Rule America through unlawful contracts, unlawful taxes, and contract documents of false equity through debt deceit, all strictly enforced by their completely unlawful, but “legal”, Orders, Rules and Codes of the Crown Temple Courts, our so-called “judiciary” in America. This is because the Crown Temple holds the land titles and estate deeds to all of North America.
The biggest lie is what the Crown and its agents refer to as “the rule of law”. In reality, it is not about law at all, but solely about the Crown Rule of all nations. For example, just read what President Bush stated on November 13, 2001, regarding the “rule of law:”
“Our countries are embarked on a new relationship for the 21st century, founded on a commitment to the values of democracy, the free market, and the rule of law.” - Joint Statement by President George W. Bush and President Vladimir V. Putin on 11/13/01, spoken from the White House, Washington D.C.
What happened in 1776?
"Whoever owns the soil, owns all the way to the heavens and to the depths of the earth." - Old Latin maxim and Roman expression.
1776 is the year that will truly live in infamy for all Americans. It is the year that the Crown Colonies became legal Crown States. The Declaration of Independence was a legal, not lawful, document. It was signed on both sides by representatives of the Crown Temple. Legally, it announced the status quo of the Crown Colonies to that of the new legal name called “States” as direct possessive estates of the Crown (see the definitions above to understand the legal trickery that was done).
The American people were hoodwinked into thinking they were declaring lawful independence from the Crown. Proof that the Colonies are still in Crown possession is the use of the word “State” to signify a “legal estate of possession.” Had this been a document of and by the people, both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution would have been written using the word “states”. By the use of “State,” the significance of a government of estate possession was legally established. All of the North American States are Crown Templar possessions through their legal document, signed by their representation of both parties to the contract, known as the Constitution of the United States of America.
All “Constitutional Rights” in America are simply those dictated by the Crown Temple and enforced by the Middle Inn Templars (Bar Attorners) through their franchise and corporate government entity, the federal United States Government. When a “State Citizen” attempts to invoke his “constitutional”, natural, or common law “rights” in Chancery (equity courts), he is told they don’t apply. Why? Simply because a State citizen has no rights outside of the Rule and Codes of Crown “law”. Only a state citizen has natural and common law rights by the paramount authority of God’s Law.
The people who comprise the citizenry of a state are recognized only within natural and common law as is already established by God’s Law. Only a State Citizen can be a party to an action within a State Court. A common state citizen cannot be recognized in that court because he doesn’t legally exist in Crown Chancery Courts. In order to be recognized in their State Courts, the common man must be converted to that of a corporate or legal entity (a legal fiction).
Now you know why they create such an entity using all capital letters within Birth Certificates issued by the State. They convert the common lawful man of God into a fictional legal entity subject to Administration by State Rules, Orders and Codes (there is no “law” within any Rule or Code). Of course, Rules, Codes, etc. do not apply to the lawful common man of the Lord of lords, so the man with inherent Godly law and rights must be converted into a legal “Person” of fictional “status” (another legal term) in order for their legal - but completely unlawful – State Judiciary (Chancery Courts) to have authority over him. Chancery Courts are tribunal courts where the decisions of “justice” are decided by 3 “judges”. This is a direct result of the Crown Temple having invoked their Rule and Code over all judicial courts.
“It is held to be a settled Rule, that our courts can not take notice of any title to land not derived from the State or Colonial government, and duly verified by patent.” -4 Johns. Rep. 163. Jackson v. Waters, 12 Johns. Rep. 365. S.P.
The Crown Temple was granted Letters Patent (see definition above) and Charters (definition below) for all the land (Colonies) of New England by the King of England, a sworn member of the Middle Temple (as the Queen is now). Since the people were giving the patent/charter corporations and Colonial Governours such a hard time, especially concerning Crown taxation, a scheme was devised to allow the Americans to believe they were being granted “independence.” Remember, the Crown Templars represented both parties to the 1776 Declaration of Independence; and, as we are about to see, the latter 1787 U.S. Constitution.
To have this “Declaration” recognized by international treaty law, and in order to establish the new legal Crown entity of the incorporated United States, Middle Templar King George III agreed to the Treaty of Paris on September 3, 1783, “between the Crown of Great Britain and the said United States”. The Crown of Great Britain legally was, then and now, the Crown Temple. This formally gave international recognition to the corporate “United States”, the new Crown Temple States (Colonies). Most important is to know who the actual signatories to the Treaty of Paris were. Take particular note to the abbreviation “Esqr.” following their names (see above definition for ESQUIRE) as this legally signifies “Officers of the King’s Courts”, which we now know were Templar Courts or Crown Courts. This is the same Crown Templar Title given to Alexander Hamilton (see above).
The Crown was represented in signature by “David Hartley, Esqr.”, a Middle Templar of the King’s Court. Representing the United States (a Crown franchise) by signature was “John Adams, Esqr”, “Benjamin Franklin, Esqr.” and “John Jay, Esqr.” The signatories for the “United States” were also Middle Templars of the King’s Court through Bar Association membership. What is plainly written in history proves, once again, that the Crown Temple was representing both parties to the agreement. What a perfect and elaborate scam the people of North America had pulled on them!
It becomes even more obvious when you read Article 5, which states in part,
“to provide for the Restitution of all Estates, Rights, and Properties which have been confiscated, belonging to real British Subjects.”
The Crown Colonies were granted to “persons” and corporations of the Crown Temple through Letters Patent and Charters, and the North American Colonial land was owned by the Crown.
Now, here’s a real catch-all in Article 4:
“It is agreed that creditors on either side shall meet with no lawful impediment to the recovery of the full value in sterling money of all bona fide debts heretofore contracted.”
Since the Crown and its Templars represented both the United States, as the debtors, and the Crown, as the creditors, then they became the creditor of the American people by owning all debts of the former Colonies, now called the legal Crown States. This sounds too good to be true, but these are the facts. The words SCAM and HOODWINKED can’t begin to describe what had taken place.
So then, what debts were owed to the Crown Temple and their banks as of 1883? In the Contract Between the King and the Thirteen United States of North America, signed at Versailles July 16, 1782, Article I states,
“It is agreed and certified that the sums advanced by His Majesty to the Congress of the United States under the title of a loan, in the years 1778, 1779, 1780, 1781, and the present 1782, amount to the sum of eighteen million of livres, money of France, according to the following twenty-one receipts of the above-mentioned underwritten Minister of Congress, given in virtue of his full powers, to wit…”
That amount equals about $18 million dollars, plus interest, that Hamilton’s U.S. Central Bank owed the Crown through Crown Bank loans in France. This was signed, on behalf of the United States, by an already familiar Middle Templar, Benjamin Franklin, Esquire.
An additional $6 million dollars (six million livres) was loaned to the United States at 5% interest by the same parties in a similar Contract signed on February 25, 1783. The Crown Bankers in the Netherlands and France were calling in their debts for payment by future generations of Americans.
The Fiscal Agents of Mystery Babylon
Since its beginnings, the Temple Church at the City of London has been a Knight Templar secret society. It was built and established by the same Temple Knights who were given their Rule and Order by the Roman Pope. It’s very important to know how the British Royal Crown was placed into the hands of the Knights Templars, and how the Crown Templars became the fiscal and military agents for the Pope of the Roman Church.
This all becomes very clear through the Concession Of England To The Pope on May 15, 1213.charter was sworn in fealty by England’s King John to Pope Innocent and the Roman Church. It was witnessed before the Crown Templars, as King John stated upon sealing the same,
“I myself bearing witness in the house of the Knights Templars.”
Pay particular attention to the words being used that we have defined below, especially charter, fealty, demur, and concession:
We wish it to be known to all of you, through this our charter, furnished with our seal… not induced by force or compelled by fear, but of our own good and spontaneous will and by the common counsel of our barons, do offer and freely concede to God and His holy apostles Peter and Paul and to our mother the holy Roman church, and to our lord pope Innocent and to his Catholic successors, the whole kingdom of England and the whole kingdom Ireland, with all their rights and appurtenances… we perform and swear fealty for them to him our aforesaid lord pope Innocent, and his catholic successors and the Roman church… binding our successors and our heirs by our wife forever, in similar manner to perform fealty and show homage to him who shall be chief pontiff at that time, and to the Roman church without demur. As a sign… we will and establish perpetual obligation and concession… from the proper and especial revenues of our aforesaid kingdoms… the Roman church shall receive yearly a thousand marks sterling… saving to us and to our heirs our rights, liberties and regalia; all of which things, as they have been described above, we wish to have perpetually valid and firm; and we bind ourselves and our successors not to act counter to them. And if we or any one of our successors shall presume to attempt this, whoever he be, unless being duly warned he come to his kingdom, and this senses, be shall lose his right to the kingdom, and this charter of our obligation and concession shall always remain firm.
Most who have commented on this charter only emphasize the payments due the Pope and the Roman Church. What should be emphasized is the fact that King John broke the terms of this charter by signing the Magna Carta on June 15, 1215. Remember; the penalty for breaking the 1213 agreement was the loss of the Crown (right to the kingdom) to the Pope and his Roman Church. It says so quite plainly. To formally and lawfully take the Crown from the royal monarchs of England by an act of declaration, on August 24, 1215, Pope Innocent III annulled the Magna Carta; later in the year, he placed an Interdict (prohibition) on the entire British empire. From that time until today, the English monarchy and the entire British Crown belonged to the Pope.
The following definitions are all taken from Webster’s 1828 Dictionary since the meanings have not been perverted for nearly 200 years:
FEALTY, n. [L. fidelis.] Fidelity to a lord; faithful adherence of a tenant or vassal to the superior of whom he holds his lands; loyalty. Under the feudal system of tenures, every vassal or tenant was bound to be true and faithful to his lord, and to defend him against all his enemies. This obligation was called his fidelity or fealty, and an oath of fealty was required to be taken by all tenants to their landlords. The tenant was called a liege man; the land, a liege fee; and the superior, liege lord.
FEE, n. [In English, is loan. This word, fee, inland, or an estate in trust, originated among the descendants of the northern conquerors of Italy, but it originated in the south of Europe. See Feud.] Primarily, a loan of land, an estate in trust, granted by a prince or lord, to be held by the grantee on condition of personal service, or other condition; and if the grantee or tenant failed to perform the conditions, the land reverted to the lord or donor, called the landlord, or lend-lord, the lord of the loan. A fee then is any land or tenement held of a superior on certain conditions. It is synonymous with fief and feud. In the United States, an estate in fee or fee simple is what is called in English law an allodial estate, an estate held by a person in his own right, and descendible to the heirs in general.
FEUD, n. [L. fides; Eng. loan.] A fief; a fee; a right to lands or hereditaments held in trust, or on the terms of performing certain conditions; the right which a vassal or tenant has to the lands or other immovable thing of his lord, to use the same and take the profits thereof hereditarily, rendering to his superior such duties and services as belong to military tenure, &c., the property of the soil always remaining in the lord or superior.
By swearing to the 1213 Charter in fealty, King John declared that the British-English Crown and its possessions at that time, including all future possessions, estates, trusts, charters, letters patent, and land, were forever bound to the Pope and the Roman Church, the landlord. Some five hundred years later, the New England Colonies in America became a part of the Crown as a possession and trust named the “United States.”
ATTORNING, ppr. Acknowledging a new lord, or transferring homage and fealty to the purchaser of an estate.
Bar Attorneys have been attorning ever since they were founded at the Temple Church, by acknowledging that the Crown and he who holds the Crown is the new lord of the land.
CHARTER, n. 1. A written instrument, executed with usual forms, given as evidence of a grant, contract, or whatever is done between man and man. In its more usual sense, it is the instrument of a grant conferring powers, rights and privileges, either from a king or other sovereign power, or from a private person, as a charter of exemption, that no person shall be empanelled on a jury, a charter of pardon, &c. The charters under which most of the colonies in America were settled, were given by the king of England, and incorporated certain persons, with powers to hold the lands granted, to establish a government, and make laws for their own regulation. These were called charter-governments.
By agreeing to the Magna Carta, King John had broken the agreement terms of his fealty with Rome and the Pope.
The Pope and his Roman Church control the Crown Temple because his Knights established it under his Orders. He who controls the gold controls the world.
The Crown Temple Today
The workings of the Crown Temple in this day and age is moreso obvious, yet somewhat hidden. The Crown Templars have many names and many symbols to signify their private and unholy Temple. Take a close look at the (alleged) one dollar $1 private Federal Reserve System (a Crown banking franchise) Debt Note.
Notice in the base of the pyramid the Roman date MDCCLXXVI which is written in Roman numerals for the year 1776. The words ANNUIT COEPTIS NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM are Roman Latin for ANNOUNCING THE BIRTH OF THE NEW ORDER OF THE WORLD. Go back to the definitions above and pay particular attention to the words CAPITOL, CROWN and TEMPLE. 1776 signifies the birth of the New World Order under the Crown Temple. That’s when their American Crown Colonies became the chartered government called the United States, thanks to the Declaration of Independence. Since that date, the United Nations (another legal Crown Temple by charter) rose up and refers to every nation as a State member.
The Wizard of Oz = the Crown Temple
This is not a mere child’s story written by L. Frank Baum. What symbol does “Oz” stand for? Ounces.Gold What is the yellow brick road? Bricks or ingot bars of gold.
The character known as the Straw Man represents that fictitious ALL CAPS legal fiction - a PERSON - the Federal U.S. Government created with the same spelling as your Christian birth name. Remember what the Straw Man wanted from the Wizard of Oz? A brain! No legal fiction has a brain because they have no breath of life! What did he get in place of a brain? A Certificate. A Birth Certificate for a new legal creation. He was proud of his new legal status, plus all the other legalisms he was granted. Now he becomes the true epitome of the brainless sack of straw who was given a Certificate in place of a brain of common sense.
What about the Tin Man? Does Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) mean anything to you? The poor TIN Man just stood there mindlessly doing his work until his body literally froze up and stopped functioning. He worked himself to death because he had no heart nor soul. He’s the heartless and emotionless creature robotically carrying out his daily task as if he was already dead. He’s the ox pulling the plow and the mule toiling under the yoke. His masters keep him cold on the outside and heartless on the inside in order to control any emotions or heart he may get a hold of.
The pitiful Cowardly Lion was always too frightened to stand up for himself. Of course, he was a bully and a big mouth when it came to picking on those smaller than he was. They act as if they have great courage, but they really have none at all. All roar with no teeth of authority to back them up. When push came to shove, the Cowardly Lion always buckled under and whimpered when anyone of any size or stature challenged him. He wanted courage from the Grand Wizard, so he was awarded a medal of “official” recognition. Now, regardless of how much of a coward he still was, his official status made him a bully with officially recognized authority. He’s just like the Attorneys who hide behind the Middle Courts of the Temple Bar.
What about the trip through the field of poppies? They weren’t real people, so drugs had no effect on them. The Wizard of Oz was written at the turn of the century, so how could the author have known America was going to be drugged? The Crown has been playing the drug cartel game for centuries. Just look up the history of Hong Kong and the Opium Wars. The Crown already had valuable experience conquering all of China with drugs, so why not the rest of the world?
Who finally exposed the Wizard for what he really was? Toto, the ugly (or cute, depending on your perspective) and somewhat annoying little dog. Toto means “in total, all together; Latin in toto.” Notice how Toto was not scared of the Great Wizard’s theatrics, yet he was so small in size compared to the Wizard, no-one seemed to notice him. The smoke, flames and hologram images were designed to frighten people into doing as the Great Wizard of Oz commanded. Toto simply went over, looked behind the curtain – the court - (see the definition for curtain above), saw it was a scam, and started barking until others paid attention to him and came to see what all the barking was about.Just an ordinary person controlling the levers that created the illusions of the Great Wizard’s power and authority. The veil hiding the corporate legal fiction and its false courts was removed. The Wizard’s game was up. It’s too bad that people don’t realize how loud a bark from a little dog is. How about your bark? Do you just remain silent and wait to be given whatever food and recognition, if any, your legal master gives you?
Let’s not forget those pesky flying monkeys. What a perfect mythical creature to symbolize the Bar Association Attorners who attack and control all the little people for the Great Crown Wizard, the powerful and grand Bankers of Oz - Gold.
What is it going to take to expose the Wizard and tear down the court veil for what they really are? Each of us needs only a brain, a heart and soul, and courage. Then, and most importantly, we all need to learn how to work together. Only “in toto,” working together as one Body of the King of Kings, can we ever be free or have the freedom given under God’s Law.
Mystery Babylon Revealed
There is no mystery behind the current abomination of Babylon for those who discern His Truth:
And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
God has reserved His judgment for the great idolatress, Rome, the chief seat of all idolatry, that rules over many nations with whom the kings have committed to the worship of her idols (see Revelation 17:1-4). The Pope and His purported Church; sitting on the Temple throne at the Vatican; ruling the nations of the earth through the Crown Temple of ungodly deities are the Rule and Order of Babylon; the Crown of godlessness and the Code of commerce.
One may call the Rule of the world today by many names: The New World Order (a Bush family favourite), the Third Way (spoken by Tony Blair and Bill Clinton), the Illuminati, Triad, Triangle, Trinity, Masonry, the United Nations, the EU, the US, or many dozens of other names. However, they all point to one origin and one beginning. We have traced this in history to the Crown Temple, the Temple Church circa 1200. Because the Pope created the Order of the Temple Knights (the Grand Wizards of deception) and established their mighty Temple Church in the sovereign City of London, it is the Pope and his Roman Capitols who control the world.
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication”
This verse appears to be an accurate description of the Pope and His Bishops for the past 1,700 years. The idolatries of commerce in the world: all the gold and silver; the iron and soft metals; the money and coins and riches of the world: All of these are under the control of the Crown Temple; the Roman King and his false Church; the throne of Babylon; attended to by his Templar Knights, the Wizards of abomination and idolatry.
“The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman [mother of harlots] sitteth” - Revelation 17:9
The only mention of “seven mountains” within our present-day Bible is at Revelation 17:9, so it’s no wonder this has been a mystery to the current Body of Christ. The 1611 King James (who was a Crown Templar) Bible is not the entire canon of the early church (“church” in Latin ecclesia; in Greek ekklesia). This in itself is no mystery as history records the existence and destruction of these early church writings; just as history has now proven their genuine authenticity with the appearance of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the coptic library at Nag Hagmadi in Egypt, among many other recent Greek language discoveries within the past 100 years.
The current Holy Bible quotes the Book of Enoch numerous times:
By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, "and was not found, because God had taken him"; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
- Hebrews 11:5
Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
- Jude 1:14-15
The Book of Enoch was considered scripture by most early Christians. The earliest literature of the so-called "Church Fathers" is filled with references to this mysterious book. The second century Epistle of Barnabus makes much use of the Book of Enoch. Second and Third Century "Church Fathers," such as Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Origin and Clement of Alexandria, all make use of the Book of Enoch "Holy Scripture". The Ethiopic Church included the Book of Enoch to its official canon. It was widely known and read the first three centuries after Christ. However, this and many other books became discredited after the Roman Council of Laodicea. Being under ban of the Roman Papal authorities, afterwards they gradually passed out of circulation.
At about the time of the Protestant Reformation, there was a renewed interest in the Book of Enoch, which had long since been lost to the modern world. By the late 1400's, rumors began to spread that a copy of the long lost Book of Enoch might still exist. During this time, many books arose claiming to be the lost book but were later found to be forgeries.
The return of the Book of Enoch to the modern western world is credited to the famous explorer James Bruce, who in 1773 returned from six years in Abyssinia with three Ethiopic copies of the lost book. In 1821, Richard Laurence published the first English translation. The now famous R.H. Charles edition was first published by Oxford Press in 1912. In the following years, several portions of the Greek text also surfaced. Then, with the discovery of cave number four of the Dead Sea Scrolls, seven fragmentary copies of the Aramaic text were discovered.
Within the Book of Enoch is revealed one of the mysteries of Babylon concerning the seven mountains she sits upon (underlining has been added):
[CHAPTER 52] 2 There mine eyes saw all the secret things of heaven that shall be; a mountain of iron, a mountain of copper, a mountain of silver, a mountain of gold, a mountain of soft metal, and a mountain of lead.
6 These  mountains which thine eyes have seen: The mountain of iron, the mountain of copper, the mountain of silver, the mountain of gold, the mountain of soft metal, and the mountain of lead. All these shall be in the presence of the Elect One as wax: Before the fire, like the water which streams down from above upon those mountains, and they shall become powerless before his feet. 7 It shall come to pass in those days that none shall be saved, either by gold or by silver, and none be able to escape. 8 There shall be no iron for war, nor shall one clothe oneself with a breastplate. Bronze shall be of no service, tin shall be of no service and shall not be esteemed, and lead shall not be desired. 9 All these things shall be denied and destroyed from the surface of the earth when the Elect One shall appear before the face of the Lord of Spirits.’
[CHAPTER 24] 3 The seventh mountain was in the midst of these, and it excelled them in height, resembling the seat of a throne; and fragrant trees encircled the throne.
[CHAPTER 25] 3 And he answered saying: ‘This high mountain which thou hast seen, whose summit is like the throne of God, is His throne, where the Holy Great One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit, when He shall come down to visit the earth with goodness. 4 As for this fragrant tree, no mortal is permitted to touch it until the great judgement when He shall take vengeance on all and bring (everything) to its consummation for ever. 5 It shall then be given to the righteous and Holy. Its fruit shall be for food to the elect: It shall be transplanted to the Holy place, to the temple of the Lord, the Eternal King. 6 Then shall they rejoice with joy and be glad, and into the Holy place shall they enter; its fragrance shall be in their bones and they shall live a long life on earth, such as thy fathers lived: In their days shall no sorrow, or plague, or torment, or calamity touch them.’
The present wealth and power of all the world’s gold, silver, tin, bronze, pearls, diamonds, gemstones, iron, and copper belonging the Babylon whore, and held in the treasuries of her Crown Templar banks and deep stony vaults, will not be able to save them at the time of the Lord’s judgment.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in [yourselves], neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
– Matthew 23:13
Where do we go from here?
Now that their false Temple has been exposed, how does this apply to the Kingdom of Heaven? To reach the end, you must know the beginning. For everything ordained of God, there is an imitation ordained of evil that looks like the genuine thing. There is the knowledge of good and the knowledge of evil. The problem is, most believe they have the knowledge of God when what they really have is knowledge of world deceptions operating as gods. The only way to discern and begin to understand the Kingdom of Heaven is to seek the Knowledge that comes only from God, not the knowledge of men who take their legal claim as earthly rulers and gods.
The false Crown Temple and its Grand Wizard Knights have led the world to believe that they are of the Lord God and hold the knowledge and keys to His Kingdom. What they hold within their Temples are the opposite. They claim to be the “Holy Church,” but which holy church? The real one or the false one? Are the Pope and his Roman Church the Temple of God, or is this the unholy Temple of Babylon sitting upon the seven mountains?
They use the same words, but alter them to show the true meaning they have applied: The State is not a state; a Certificate is not a certification. The Roman Church is not the church (ekklesia). There is the Crown of the Lord; and a Crown of that which is not of the Lord. All imitations appear to be the genuine article, but they are fakes. Those who are truly seeking the genuine Kingdom of God must allow the Lord to show them the discernment between the genuine and the imitation. Without this discernment by the Holy Spirit, all will remain fooled by the illusions of false deity emanating from the unholy spirits of the Wizards.
Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
- Luke 17:21
Jesus said, "If your leaders say to you, 'Look, the (Father's) kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the FATHER'S kingdom is within you and it is outside you."
– Gospel of Thomas 3
Don’t you know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God lives in you?
– 1 Corinthians 3:16
Jesus said, "Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. [And there is nothing buried that will not be raised."]
– Gospel of Thomas 5

ORDER OF MALTA VALUABLE TO CHURCH IN ZAIRE
KINSHASA: Zaire - The French term procureur might sound almost indecent to the English-speaking ear. But few of Zaire's churches, Catholic or Protestant, could function without one.
In the rough-and-tumble scramble to survive Zaire's predatory bureaucrats and cannibal capitalism, few church officials are more essential than the procureur, the person whose job it is to obtain the money and goods necessary for church activities.
When I first visited Zaire a decade ago the Catholic diocesan procureurs' office [called the procure] was the easiest and safest place to exchange money. Located behind Kinshasa's St. Anne's Catholic Church it offered an exchange rate for traveler's checks midway between bank and black-market rates Ñ but without banks' bureaucratic hassles or the risk of arrest or theft during a street deal.
The procureur is typically a foreign priest, trusted to resist corruption more easily than Zairean priests, who are pressured by economic needs and cultural attitudes to help their many relatives. In recent years, Protestant churches have set up their own procures, which, along with their Catholic counterparts, provide many essential logistic services for both local churches and missionaries.
But no procure carries as much cachet and political clout in Zaire as the wealthy and politically conservative Sovereign Order of Malta.
Founded in the 11th century to give medical aid to Christian pilgrims in the Holy Land, the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John Ñ after assuming military duties in the 12th century and relocating to Malta three centuries later Ñ soon acquired the name Knights of Malta.
A lay religious order whose head enjoys the rank of cardinal, it gradually evolved into a sovereign entity akin to Italian and German city-states, largely controlled by a few wealthy businessmen and aristocrats.
This has given it a unique status: as a charitable nongovernmental organization whose "ambassadors" enjoy diplomatic immunity analogous to the Vatican's in many countries. It currently operates or supports clinics and hospitals in almost 90 countries.
The order achieved a certain notoriety for the profascist sympathies of some European members during World War II .............
[Van Papen, who aided Hitler become leader of Germany, was a Knight of Malta ....... JP ]
............... and its later collaboration with the Central Intelligence Agency in covert actions against leftists in Italy and Central America.
[pretty easy to "collaborate" when the head of the CIA is himself a member ! ..... JP ]
Among U.S. knights are the late William Casey [former CIA director under Reagan], former Treasury Secretary Bill Simon and the late J. Peter Grace, a Reaganite businessman.
Grace helped found AmeriCares, an international charity known for its close links to right-wing militaries in Central America and for providing medical aid to Nicaraguan contras in Honduras. One of AmeriCares' largest funders has been the Christian Broadcasting Network run by Pat Robertson.
The TV evangelist is known for his close ties to Zairean President Mobutu Sese Seko, extensive economic interests in Zaire [reported to include diamond, timber and gold concessions granted his privately owned, for-profit firm, African Development Co.] and recent lobbying efforts to win the diplomatically isolated Mobutu a coveted visa to visit Washington.
The Knights of Malta diplomatic status has made it a popular aid partner in Zaire, where it first established its embassy in 1987. A 1993 U.S. Agency for International Development assessment of emergency needs in Zaire characterized the order as "a valuable asset yet to be tapped to its fullest" given its "extensive network of contacts on all fronts" and unique ability to "obtain [duty-free] diplomatic treatment" for relief supplies.
At monthly meetings of relief agencies, the order is listed among embassy participants, rather than as a nongovernmental organization. When several aid agencies' vehicles were stolen by Zairean soldiers a couple of years ago, diplomatic intervention by the order assured their return, according to several Kinshasa sources.
The order's activities are many and diverse, Fr. Robert Debourse, counselor at the order's downtown Kinshasa embassy, told NCR. [Debourse, a Belgian priest, has worked in Zaire for 40 years, "the reason I have all this white hair," he quipped.] In addition to providing medical supplies for hospitals and clinics, the order has helped fund Zaire's sole journal for health professionals, supported community -based nutrition centers and provided food to those in Zaire's notoriously ill-run prisons.
The order imports many vehicles for its own and other nongovernmental organizations' medical and educational projects as well as for use by local diocesan development offices. It also organizes logistics for volunteer Belgian-Zairean medical teams organized by 'Doctors Without Vacations' that work at several hospitals for the handicapped.
The order has assisted recent victims of "ethnic cleansing" expelled from Zaire's southern Shaba province to resettle in Kasai, said Debourse. Aided by the European Union and World Food Program, the order helped supply food and transport for new arrivals and seeds for staple crops to farmers at seven sites in the Kasai region.
The order has worked closely with a number of embassies, international aid agencies like Caritas and Catholic Relief Services and local church structures in the Kasai resettlement effort. In eastern Zaire, added Debourse, it also works with Caritas and other agencies to assist Rwandan refugees and has a fuel project with the French oil company Golf and American firm Chevron.
Asked about the order's relations with the Zairean government, "we have a state-to-state cooperation agreement with Mobutu," Debourse told NCR, "just like other embassies." Asked how its role differs from that of the Vatican, "the Vatican treats purely religious issues while we deal with humanitarian issues only," he added. ÑCC
Steve Askin also contributed to this story.

Duke heads into storm as sons of Mau Mau declare war on Freemasons
THOUSANDS of young Kenyans are flocking to join an aggressive religious cult which has vowed to wage a ‘holy war’ against Freemasonry.
The Mungiki youth sect has already declared war on tourists as well as alcohol, tobacco and mini-skirts, which are seen as symbols of the society they detest.
Now its members are vowing to eradicate Freemasonry from their country, just months before the Duke of Kent is expected to visit Kenya as part of celebrations to mark the centenary of the secretive organisation in East Africa.
The threat is being taken seriously by authorities in the country, who are still reeling from the bombing of the Paradise Hotel in Mombasa and an attempt to shoot down an Israeli airliner, both earlier this month. Only last week the British High Commission was shut after receiving a "specific threat".
The 300,000 members of the Mungiki youth sect see themselves as the true sons of the Mau Mau rebels who rose up against British colonial rule in the 1950s. The sect, which is banned, is committed to the traditional "African way of worship, culture and lifestyle".
Its leaders have accused the Freemasons of "devil worshipping, drinking human blood, child and other forms of human sacrifice and undermining the moral foundations of African society".
Ibrahim Waruingi, leader of the fundamentalist sect, said: "We must burn the abode of all the evil that has invaded our country before we perish. We are now targeting a snake which is fed on human blood drawn from children kidnapped by Freemasons," he added.
‘We must burn the abode of all the evil before we perish’
The threat comes as nearly 8,000 Freemasons in Kenya, Uganda, Seychelles and Tanzania are preparing to celebrate the centenary of the organisation’s founding in Zanzibar in 1903. The highlight of next year’s celebrations is due to be a visit by the Grand Master of English Freemasonry, the Duke of Kent.
He is expected to hold talks in Nairobi with the new president of Kenya and be hosted in the Tanzanian capital Dar es Salaam by President Ben Mkapa.
Senior officials responsible for the Duke of Kent’s security are known to be taking the threats by the Mungiki seriously.
Defending Freemasonry, Dr Andy Chande, grandmaster of the Lodge of East Africa, said: "Some time ago, [former] President Moi set up a commission of inquiry into the activities of Freemasons in Kenya.
"The commissioners interviewed me and other leading Masons. They found nothing to connect us with Satan worship but did suggest that we made more of an effort to explain our activities to the public.
"Our members do a great deal of work for charity and all of us believe in a Supreme Being. Charges that we worship the devil are ridiculous."
The oaths taken by members of the Mungiki sect bear a strong resemblance to those taken by the Mau Mau in the vast forests of Kikuyuland around Nairobi half a century ago.
The more violent members of Mungiki have already sworn allegiance to Islam, to the embarrassment of leading Kenyan Imams who want no part of a ‘holy war’ against Freemasons.
Throughout East Africa hundreds of thousands of young unemployed hopeless and homeless blacks are turning from Christian churches and looking to Islam for religious, and financial, help. They also like the free T-shirts and Korans provided courtesy of Libya’s President Gaddafi and his busy diplomats in the region.
The members of the Mungiki sect are nearly all members of the Kikuyu tribe and follow the ‘pagan’ Kikuyu religion.
But the Mungiki sect is not alone in its criticism of Freemasonry. Mainstream Anglican, Catholic and Presbyterian churches have joined in the fray. The Parish Pastor of Nairobi’s St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA), one of the oldest traditional churches in Kenya, said recently that Freemasonry should be abolished. "It has no standing in the wider community," he said.

BRITAIN’S NEW ARCHBISHOP RAISES
CONTROVERSY OVER FREEMASONRY
By Christopher Bollyn
Controversial comments by the new spiritual head of the Church of England have re-opened the debate on whether the powerful secret “brotherhood” known as Freemasonry is compatible with Christianity.
Leaked comments from the new head of the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams, have raised the controversial issue of Freemasonry and questions its compatibility with Christianity.
“I am not and have never been a mason,” Williams wrote in a letter to Hugh Sinclair, an author investigating Freemasonry. “I have resisted the appointment of known masons to certain senior posts,” Williams, who previously served as the Archbishop of Wales, said. “I have real misgivings about the compatibility of masonry and Christian profession.”
Williams’ comments, which were printed in two of Britain’s leading papers, The Independent and The Guardian, have re-opened a long-standing controversy about Freemasons in the Church. Although the Church of England has millions of members in the United States, Williams’ comments did not appear in any U.S. newspaper. As a result the controversy was quietly squelched, according to a spokesman for the Church of England, who spoke with American Free Press.
Jonathan Jennings, a spokesman for the archbishop, told AFP that Williams had considered his comments to be “private correspondence” and that he did not “intend to take the debate any further.” The church’s position on Freemasonry is “quite complex,” according to Jennings.
Thousands of leading clergymen and churchgoers in the Church of England are among Britain’s 350,000 Freemasons, according to The Independent, which carried two articles on the religious controversy on Nov. 15.
“Masons” are members of the so-called “brotherhood” of Freemasonry, described on the organization’s website as Britain’s “largest secular, fraternal, and charitable organization.”
In Freemasonry there are ranks, or degrees, the highest being the 33rd degree. Only as a member achieves the highest ranks does he become fully aware of the “brotherhood’s” core beliefs.
A number of U.S. presidents have been 33rd degree masons. President-elect George W. Bush, had requested to be sworn in as president on the same Masonic Bible that his father had used, although due to the book’s fragile condition it was reportedly replaced with another Bible.
Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, David Rockefeller, John D. Rockefeller, Gerald Ford, Newt Gingrich, Al Gore, Jesse Jackson, and Ross Perot are all allegedly high-ranking members of the secret “brotherhood.”
The religious controversy about Freemasonry centers on whether it is a “secular fraternity” or a religion. According to the 1921 Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, it is a religion: “Masonry is, in every sense of the word…an eminently religious institution.”
A spokesman for the new archbishop told The Independent: “From the end of the 19th century a lot of Anglican clergy got involved in Freemasonry. In the 20th century a number of very senior clergymen were Masons. In the 1960s people started turning against the idea of secret societies and a number of Anglican ministers saw it as possibly Satanically inspired.”
At one stage Catholics were banned from being Freemasons, but the two are no longer seen as incompatible – providing Catholics belong to a British branch of the Masons.
The influence of “the brotherhood” within the Church of England has continued and the Freemasons acknowledge that many clergymen and Anglicans are members.
Senior Freemasons have reached the Church’s highest echelon, according to Louis Henderson, a spokesman for the Church of England. Henderson told American Free Press that several archbishops had been high-ranking masons.
Henderson named the former Archbishop of Canterbury Geoffrey Fisher, who headed the Church from 1945 to 1961. Fisher also held the senior post of Grand Chaplain for the [Masonic] United Grand Lodge of England.
Rev. Gregory Cameron, chaplain to the new archbishop, said: “He [Archbishop Williams] questions whether it’s appropriate for Christian ministers to belong to secret organizations. He also has some anxiety about the spiritual content of Masonry.”
A spokesman for the archbishop said Williams was “worried about the ritual elements in Freemasonry – which some are seen as possibly satanically inspired – and how that sits uneasily with Christian belief.” He added: “The other idea is that because they are a society, there could be a network that involves mutual back-scratching, which is something he would be greatly opposed to.”
Some observers say that at the heart of Freemasonry, and known only to those who reach the highest levels, is a sinister quasi-religion based on a composite Masonic God, known as Jah-Bul-On.
In a 1984 book, The Brotherhood, Stephen Knight wrote about the inner workings of the Masons. “I have spoken to 57 long-standing Royal Arch Freemasons [one of the most senior groups], who have been happy to talk to me. All but four lost their composure when I said, ‘What about Jah-Bul-On?’,” Knight wrote.
The Freemason’s United Grand Lodge of England website says that it is not a “secret society”, but merely holds private meetings. “Freemasonry does not try to replace religion or substitute for it. Freemasonry requires a belief in God and its principles are common to many of the world’s great religions,” it says. “There are elements within certain churches who misunderstand Freemasonry and confuse secular rituals with religious liturgy.”
A spokesman for Williams told The Independent that many Christians believed that Jah-Bul-On was considered to refer to the “incarnation of Satan”. He added that the Masons promised in the 1980s to drop any reference to Jah-Bul-On because of the offence it was causing.
“There are clear difficulties to be faced by Christians who are Freemasons,” a 1987 church report on Freemasonry concluded. The report pointed to “a number of very fundamental reasons to question the compatibility of Freemasonry and Christianity.” The church’s General Synod endorsed the report by a margin of 8 to 1.
Church spokesman Henderson told American Free Press, “At the national level, there have been no formal developments since the 1987 debate.”
A spokesman for the Freemasons in England said, “As far as we are concerned, there is no incompatibility between Christianity and our organization whatsoever.”

Background Intelligence on the American Red Cross
Founded in 1881 by American humanitarian Clara Barton, the American Red Cross (officially named The American National Red Cross) was first chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1900. A second charter, still in force, was granted in 1905. Not long after, however, John D. Rockefeller pirated the entire blood banking industry, along with the administrative leadership of the ARC. As you will soon learn, this quintessential coup de tats represented more than a glorious economic opportunity. The takeover of the ARC, and the entire blood industry, was apparently required to fulfill a far more sinister, even occult-linked, political objective—eugenics management for a racially purified planet.
To begin, during this time, John D. Rockefeller and his associates were making a concerted effort to control the entire field of medicine in America. During the 1890s, Rockefeller interests in medical education and “scientific medicine” were spearheaded by Frederick T. Gates, John D. Rockefeller’s investment manager. 1901 saw the founding of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. In 1902, Rockefeller’s General Education Board was founded with a mission to annihilate the causes of racial discords. This agenda was clarified two years later with the publication of John D. Rockefeller’s Occasional Letter No. 1 in which he detailed his plans to mold Americans to his concept of “perfect human nature.” This, he claimed, might best be accomplished by destroying parental influence, traditions and customs, while reducing national intelligence levels.
In 1904, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (home to today’s Human Genome Project) was built on the estates of John Foster and Allen Dulles, lawyers for the Rockefeller Standard Oil Company. The Dulles Brothers, who openly professed John D. Rockefeller’s racial hygiene doctrines, later directed the U.S. military’s Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and after World War II, the CIA. Charles B. Davenport constructed the Cold Spring Harbor facility to provide a home for racial hygiene research, what was then called “eugenics research.” The first racial hygiene laws in the world evolved from investigations and reports issued from here. The John D. Rockefeller and Averell Harriman, America’s wealthiest oil and railroad magnates, invested more than $11 million—an extraordinary fortune at that time—in funding this facility. Soon thereafter, in 1909, the first genetics laboratory was established at the Rockefeller Institute and directed by Dr. Phoebus Aaron Theodor Levene.
By 1907, medical education had been mostly monopolized by the Rockefeller consortium. That year, the American Medical Association (AMA) advanced its medical education rating system effectively eliminating, by 1918, approximately 600 of the initial 650 medical schools. Through Rockefeller cohorts in the Andrew Carnegie Endowment for the Advancement of Teaching, Abraham Flexner was appointed to survey medical schools throughout America. This led to the infamous “Flexner Report” that vilified every alternative to drug-based medicine. The Rockefeller’s political control over this American medical coup was clearly reflected in Flexner family relations. Abraham Flexner served on the Rockefellers General Education Board. Abraham Flexner’s brother, Simon, headed the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research. Simon’s brother, Bernard, later joined the board of trustees of the Rockefeller Foundation after he helped found the politically powerful Council on Foreign Relations.
In 1910, following the death of Averell Harriman who presided over Yale’s infamous secret society, the Skull and Bones, his widow donated 80 acres of estate property to establish the Eugenics Research Association at Cold Spring Harbor, New York, along with the Eugenics Records Office. The following year, social Darwinism subscriber, John Foster Dulles, revealed his desire to help develop a “super race.” He explained that by eliminating “the weakest members of the population,” a purer Aryan race might be created. According to several reputable authors, the Dulles brothers directing Rockefeller’s management group and law firm at Sullivan and Cromwell on Wall Street, later administered the American affairs of I.G. Farben—Germany’s leading industrial organization—linked intimately to Hitler and the rising Third Reich. The Dulles law firm also directed U.S. business affairs for Fritz Thyssen, Hitler’s primary financial backer. Thyssen later introduced Allen Dulles to the rising Nazi fuehrer, after which brother John negotiated loans for the Nazis.
All of this activity foreshadowed, in 1928, the Rockefeller financing of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Eugenics, Anthropology and Human Heredity in pre-Nazi Germany. Ernst Rudin, Hitler’s chief racial hygienist, was given authority over this institute principally funded by the Rockefellers. Eugenic psychiatrist Dr. Franz J. Kallmann, and blood geneticist Otmar Verschuer assisted Dr. Rudin. Their institute was named for Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II who was a solid supporter of early eugenics experiments and occult science to further his royal bloodline. According to Wilhelm II, World War I resulted from a conspiracy between his enemies, the blood kin Czar Nicholas II and King George V, and their affiliated secret societies.
According to historic records, Hitler was also an avid student of the occult and a member of the largely secret Thule Society that contained members of the British royal family and European banking industry. Though evidence in this area of research is understandably circumstantial, Thule Society members, with connections to other politically influential leaders in the United States, including members of the Skull and Bones Fraternity at Yale University, are believed to have founded the National Socialist Party in Germany, primarily to initiate World War II.
The Occult, Freemasonry and Rockefeller Blood Banking
In my 1999 book, Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse, I shed more light on these shadowy figures of eugenics history. Shortly before the war, in 1936, according to investigative journalist Anton Chaitkin, Nazi eugenicist and Rockefeller grantee, Dr. Franz Kalmann published his schizophrenia experiments after immigrating to New York because he was half-Jewish. The secret society known as the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry published his account of more than 1,000 cases. His book was used in 1939 to rationalize the “murder of mental patients and various ‘defective’ people,” according to Chaitkin and others. At the same time, the infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele and Otmar Verschuer were collecting blood samples, particularly from twins, to conduct genetic experiments to further advance the eugenics field. I wrote that more horrific experiments followed:
Needles were stabbed into people’s eyes for eye color experiments. Others were injected with foreign blood and infectious agents. Limbs and organs were commonly removed, occasionally without anesthetics. Women were sterilized, men were castrated, and sexes were surgically altered. Thousands were butchered and their heads, eyeballs, limbs, and organs were delivered to Mengele, Verschuer, and the other Rockefeller linked contingent at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute.
It was apparently no random “coincidence” that the Rockefeller family gained so much control over the ARC and blood banking. Laurance Rockefeller assembled the New York City blood council that evolved to largely control the international blood banking industry. The importance of blood and bloodlines is a recurring theme throughout my work and history, particularly when considering the highest level and objectives of the secret Scottish Freemasons. According to the “Structure of Freemasonry,” the “Order of the Red Cross” stands third in the top echelon of power just behind the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) and the “Order of the Knights Templar.” Religious scholars cross their Bibles with red marker ribbons today unaware of the symbolism—the Masonic importance of the pure red bloodline.
Beginning with the Ordre de la Rose-Croix Veritas, more commonly known as the Rose-Croix, or Rosicrucians, the red (or rose) cross was adopted as an identifying symbol of the Masonic tradition. According to authors Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln in Holy Blood Holy Grail, themselves Freemasons, this practice began in 1188 when the Prieuré de Sion accepted the ceremonies of Ormus, said to have been an Egyptian sage, mystic, and “a Gnostic ‘adept’ in Alexandria”—a “hotbed of mystical activity” during the first century A. D. Here Ormus is believed to have exchanged theosophies with Judaic, Zoroastrian, Mithraic, Hermetic, neo-Platonic and Pythagorean scholars. The name “Ormus” was synonymous with “the principle of light” in Zoroastrian and Gnostic history. Thus, Ormus was not only the originator of the Red Cross symbol, but he apparently helped propagate the term “Illuminati.”
Over time, “Illuminati” has come to mean the few powerfully illumined, or en-light-ened souls, who are said to draw their power from “Lucifer.” Illuminati, in fact, according to Webster’s Dictionary; is derived from the French word “Lucifer” meaning “light bearing.” Webster also cross references Lucifer to the word “light.”
According to Secret Societies author Jan van Helsing, “Illuminati” came into more common use during the 14th century in Germany, where it applied to the high initiates of the “Brotherhood of the Snake”—a “savant brotherhood that had subscribed to the dissemination of spiritual knowledge and the attainment of spiritual freedom from . . . extraterrestrials” more than 3,000 years before Christ.
The Latin name of “Illuminati” and the biblical term for snake have related origins and definitions. The word snake derives from “nahash,” which came from the root word “nhsh” meaning to “discover,” or “decipher.” In Latin, “illuminare” meant “to illumine,” or “to recognize,” or “know.”
Thus, the snake used by Rockefeller-directed organized medicine today, became a symbol of evolving illuminance or intelligence. Likewise, the Knight’s Templar symbol shows the snake beginning and ending with a swastika. Citing van Helsing’s research again, “One of the main branches of the Illuminati in Germany were the mystical Rosicrucians who were introduced at the beginning of the 9th century by Charlemagne.”
Several other authors relayed that the Illuminati and the Rosicrucians were the driving force behind the esoteric religious movements of the 17th and 18th centuries. According to Webster’s Dictionary, “Christian Rosenkreutz (NL Rosae Crucis)” was the “reputed 15th cent. founder of the movement (1624) . . . a devotee of esoteric wisdom with emphasis on psychic and spiritual enlightenment. . . .” Their manifestos, fervently supported by the liberal factions of Protestants in Europe, inflamed the leaders of the Catholic Church and the Jesuits. “Among the most eloquent and influential exponents of Rosicrucian thought was Robert Fludd”—the Prieuré de Sion’s sixteenth grand master.
The Jesuit and Church backlashes that resulted in the persecution of the Cathars and Templars also helped spark Martin Luther’s rebellion. “Martin Luther also had close links to both the Illuminati and the Rosicrucians,” wrote van Helsing. Luther’s friends recognized the Rosicrucian seal he wore that contained a rose and a cross with his initials. “After Luther’s death, his confessional community was supported by Francis Bacon,” the highest-ranking Rosicrucian in England, and, the general architect of the King James Bible.

The Jesuits are a Military Religious Order of the Roman Catholic Church
"When a Jesuit of the minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colors, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS. The meaning of which is: It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers. Upon the floor is a red cross at which the postulant or candidate kneels. The Superior hands him a small black crucifix, which he takes in his left hand and presses to his heart, and the Superior at the same time presents to him a dagger, which he grasps by the blade and holds the point against his heart, the Superior still holding it by the hilt, and thus addresses the postulant:"
"My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant, and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope."
"You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means."
"You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope's sake, whose servants we are unto death."
"You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labors with the blood of the heretic; for "without the shedding of blood no man can be saved." Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me:-"
(The following material contained in Congressional Record, House Bill 1523, Contested election case of Eugene C. Bonniwell, against Thos. S. Butler, February 15, 1913, pages 3215-6. The oath appears in its entirety, in the book, THE SUPPRESSED TRUTH ABOUT THE ASSASSINATION OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, by Burke McCarty, pages 14-16).
The Extreme Oath of the Jesuits
"I, ..........., now, in the presence of Almighty God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed Michael the Archangel, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the holy Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul and all the saints and sacred hosts of heaven, and to you, my ghostly father, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola in the Pontificate of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do by the womb of the virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear, that his holiness the Pope is Christ's Vice-regent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by virtue of the keys of binding and loosing, given to his Holiness by my Savior, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical kings, princes, states, commonwealths and governments, all being illegal without his sacred confirmation and that they may safely be destroyed."
"Therefore, to the utmost of my power I shall and will defend this doctrine of his Holiness' right and custom against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever, especially the Lutheran of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the now pretended authority and churches of England and Scotland, and branches of the same now established in Ireland and on the Continent of America and elsewhere; and all adherents in regard that they be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred Mother Church of Rome. I do now renounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or state named Protestants or Liberals, or obedience to any of the laws, magistrates or officers."
"I do further declare that the doctrine of the churches of England and Scotland, of the Calvinists, Huguenots and others of the name Protestants or Liberals to be damnable and they themselves damned who will not forsake the same."
"I do further declare, that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of his Holiness' agents in any place wherever I shall be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Ireland or America, or in any other Kingdom or territory I shall come to, and do my uttermost to extirpate the heretical Protestants or Liberals' doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, legal or otherwise."
"I do further promise and declare, that notwithstanding I am dispensed with, to assume my religion heretical, for the propaganda of the Mother Church's interest, to keep secret and private all her agents' counsels from time to time, as they may entrust me and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing or circumstance whatever; but to execute all that shall be proposed, given in charge or discovered unto me, by you, my ghostly father, or any of this sacred covenant."
"I do further promise and declare, that I will have no opinion or will of my own, or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the Militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ."
"That I may go to any part of the world withersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions of the North, the burning sands of the desert of Africa, or the jungles of India, to the centers of civilization of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America, without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things whatsoever communicated to me."
"I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity present, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants' heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus."
"In confirmation of which, I hereby dedicate my life, my soul and all my corporal powers, and with this dagger which I now receive, I will subscribe my name written in my own blood, in testimony thereof; and should I prove false or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the Militia of the Pope cut off my hands and my feet, and my throat from ear to ear, my belly opened and sulphur burned therein, with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth and my soul be tortured by demons in an eternal hell forever!"
"All of which, I, .........., do swear by the Blessed Trinity and blessed Sacraments, which I am now to receive, to perform and on my part to keep inviolable; and do call all the heavenly and glorious host of heaven to witness the blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist, and witness the same further with my name written and with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and sealed in the face of this holy covenant."
(He receives the wafer from the Superior and writes his name with the point of his dagger dipped in his own blood taken from over his heart.)
"You will now rise to your feet and I will instruct you in the Catechism necessary to make yourself known to any member of the Society of Jesus belonging to this rank."
"In the first place, you, as a Brother Jesuit, will with another mutually make the ordinary sign of the cross as any ordinary Roman Catholic would; then one cross his wrists, the palms of his hands open, and the other in answer crosses his feet, one above the other; the first points with forefinger of the right hand to the center of the palm of the left, the other with the forefinger of the left hand points to the center of the palm of the right; the first then with his right hand makes a circle around his head, touching it; the other then with the forefinger of his left hand touches the left side of his body just below his heart; the first then with his right hand draws it across the throat of the other, and the latter then with a dagger down the stomach and abdomen of the first. The first then says Iustum; and the other answers Necar; the first Reges. The other answers Impious." (The meaning of which has already been explained.) "The first will then present a small piece of paper folded in a peculiar manner, four times, which the other will cut longitudinally and on opening the name Jesu will be found written upon the head and arms of a cross three times. You will then give and receive with him the following questions and answers:-"
Question:- From whither do you come?
Answer:- The Holy faith.
Q.:- Whom do you serve?
A.:- The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman Catholic Church Universal throughout the world.
Q.:- Who commands you?
A.:- The Successor of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ.
Q.:- Who received you?
A.:- A venerable man in white hair.
A.:- With a naked dagger, I kneeling upon the cross beneath the banners of the Pope and of our sacred order.
Q.:- Did you take an oath?
A.:- I did, to destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare neither age, sex nor condition. To be as a corpse without any opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my Superiors in all things without hesitation of murmuring.
Q.:- Will you do that?
A.:- I will.
Q.:- How do you travel?
A.:- In the bark of Peter the fisherman.
Q.:- Whither do you travel?
A.:- To the four quarters of the globe.
Q.:- For what purpose?
A.:- To obey the orders of my general and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and faithfully fulfill the conditions of my oaths.
Q.:- Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated."
The Oath of the Knights of Columbus, Knights of Malta and Rhodes Scholars is based upon the Oath of the Jesuits
(This is an extract of the Congressional Record of the House of Representatives dated February 15, 1913, where the oath is entered as purported to be of the Knights of Columbus).
"I, ............, now in the presence of Almighty God, the blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the Holy Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, and all the saints, sacred host of heaven, and to you, my Ghostly Father, the superior general of the Society of Jesus rounded by St. Ignatius Loyola, in the pontification of Paul the III and continued to the present, do by the womb at the Virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear that His Holiness the Pope, is Christ's vice regent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by virtue of the keys of binding and loosing given His Holiness by my Savior, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical kings, princes, States, Commonwealths, and Governments and they may be safely destroyed. Therefore to the utmost of ray power I will defend this doctrine and His Holiness's right and custom against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever, especially the Lutheran Church of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway and the now pretended authority and Churches of England and Scotland, and the branches of same now established in Ireland and on the Continent of America and elsewhere, and all adherents in regard that they may be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred Mother Church of Rome."
"I do now denounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince, or State, named Protestant or Liberals, or obedience to any of their laws, magistrates, or officers."
"I do further declare that the doctrine of the Churches of England and Scotland, of the Calvinists, Huguenots, and others of the name of Protestants or Masons to be damnable, and they themselves to be damned who will not forsake the same."
"I do further declare that I will help assist, and advise all or any of His Holiness's agents, in any place where I should be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Ireland, or America, or in any other kingdom or territory I shall come to and do my utmost to extirpate the heretical Protestant or Masonic doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, legal or otherwise."
"I do further promise and declare that, notwithstanding I am dispensed with to assume any religion heretical for the propagation of the Mother Church's interest to keep secret and private all her agents' counsels from time to time, as they intrust me and not divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing, or circumstances whatever but to execute all that should be proposed, given in charge or discovered unto me by you my Ghostly Father, or any of this sacred order."
"I do further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will of my own or any mental reservation whatsoever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ."
"That I will go to any part of the world whithersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions north, jungles of India, to the centers of civilization of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things whatsoever is communicated to me."
"I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly and openly against all heretics, Protestants and Masons, as I am directed to do to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex, or condition, and that will hang, bum, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants' heads against the wails in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the same can not be done openly, I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of the Pope or superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus."
"In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my life, soul, and all corporal powers, and with the dagger which I now receive I will subscribe my name written in my blood in testimony thereof; and should I prove false or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the militia of the Pope cut off my hands and feet and my throat from ear to ear, my belly opened and sulphur burned therein with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth and my soul shall be tortured by demons in eternal hell forever."
"That I will in voting always vote for K. of C, in preference to a Protestant, especially a Mason, and that I will leave my party so to do; that if two Catholics are on the ticket I will satisfy myself which is the better supporter of Mother Church and vote accordingly."
"That I will not deal with or employ a Protestant if in my power to deal with or employ a Catholic. That I will place Catholic girls in Protestant families that a weekly report may be made of the inner movements of the heretics."
"That I will provide myself with arms and ammunition that I may be in readiness when the word is passed, or I am commanded to defend the church either as an individual or with the militia of the Pope."
"All of which I, ............, do swear by the blessed Trinity and blessed sacrament which I am now to receive to perform and on part to keep this, my oath."
"In testimony hereof, I take this most holy and blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist and witness the same further with my name written with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and seal in the face of this holy sacrament."
The Oath administered to the Illuminati is based upon the Oath of the Jesuits
Before the Oath is administered it is said -- a sword is pointed at the breast:
"Shouldst thou become a traitor or perjurer, let this sword remind thee of each and all the members in arms against thee. Do not hope to find safety; whithersoever thou mayest fly, shame and remorse as well as the vengeance of thine unknown brothers will torture and pursue thee."
Then in the Oath which follows he swears:
". . . Eternal silence, and faithfulness and everlasting obedience to all superiors and regulations of the Order. I also renounce my own personal views and opinions as well as all control of my powers and capacities. I promise also to consider the well-being of the Order as my own, and I am ready, as long as I am a member, to serve it with my goods, my honour, and my life . . . If I act against the rules and well-being of the Society, I will submit myself to the penalties to which my superiors may condemn me . . ."
"In the name of the son crucified (i.e. the Pentagram, the illuminised man), swear to break the bonds which still bind you to your father, mother, brothers, sisters, wife, relatives, friends, mistresses, kings, chiefs, benefactors, and all persons to whomsoever you may have promised faith, obedience, and service. Name and curse the place where you were born, so that you may dwell in another sphere, to which you will attain only after having renounced this pestilential globe, vile refuse of the heavens! From this moment you are free from the so-called oath to country and laws: swear to reveal to the new chief, recognised by you, what you may have seen or done, intercepted, read or heard, learned or surmised, and also seek for and spy out what your eyes cannot discern. Honour and respect the Aqua Tofana (i.e. an imperceptably slow poison) as a sure, prompt, and necessary means of purging the globe by death of those who seek to vilify the truth and sieze it from our hands. Fly from Spain, Naples, and all accursed land; finally fly from the temptation to reveal what you may hear, for the thunder is no prompter that the knife, which awaits you in whatsoever place you may be. Live in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (The Trinity of Illuminism -- Cabalistic and Gnostic. The Father -- the the generating fire; the Holy Spirit -- the Great Mother Nature, reproducing all things; the Son -- the manifestation, the vital fluid, the astral light of Illuminism)."
Unknown to the members of these various secret societies seeking "Illumination" and "deification," their masters are the Cabalistic Jew, the originator of Gnostic mysticism.
Go to Superiors General of the Society of Jesus

Go to Initial Membership List of the Knights of Malta
"The three forms of initiation -- individual, group, or universal -- all lead to conscious or unconscious control by a central power, who in some mysterious way makes its influence felt; often clairvoyantly and clairaudiently seen and heard, but never physically present or visible. the system in all three is the same -- cabalistic. Secretly here and there individuals are prepared; these again form groups or centres from which influences spread until they form a network covering the entire world. Like rays from a hidden sun these groups are apparently divergent and detatched, but in reality all issue from the same central body. The system is seen to be an insidious and secret dissemination of ideas, orienting and breaking down all barriers of family, religion, morality, nationality, and all self-initiative thought, always under the cloak of a new and more modern religion, new thought, new morality, a new heaven and a new earth; until it evolves a gigantic robot merely answering to the will and commands of a secret Master Mind. They dream they are free, original, self- determining individuals; they are but the negative moon reflecting and reproducing the light from the same hidden and cabalistic Sun. It is called regeneration by the Illuminati; it is in truth individual death and disintegration, followed by a resurrection as negative "light-bearers" of this cabalistic dark Sun whose Luciferian "Grand Plan" is world domination." (Anonymous, Light-bearers of Darkness, The Christian Book Club of America, p105).
The Jewish Encyclopaedia points out that Gnosticism "was Jewish in character long before it became Christian," and quotes the opinion, "a movement closely connected with Jewish mysticism." The Freemason Ragon says: "The Cabala is the key of the occult sciences. The Gnostics were born of the Cabalists."
Rabbi Benamozegh says, "Those who will take the trouble to examine with care the connection between Judaism and philosophic Freemasonry, theosophy, and the mysteries in general . . . will cease to smile in pity at the suggestion that Cabalistic theology may have a role to play in the religious transformations of the future. . . . It contains the key to the modern religious problem" (Anonymous, Light- bearers of Darkness, The Christian Book Club of America, p11).
"Chaldean thought acted powerfully upon orthodox Judaism and determined the growth of a sect in its midst which was to transform Israel. . . . This sect was that of the Pharisees. . . . What they borrowed (from the Chaldeans) in fact . . . was the essence of the Pantheistic doctrine . . . It was then that was formed from these borrowings that Kabalah of the Pharisees which was for long transmitted orally from Master to disciple, and was, 800 years later, to inspire the compilation of the Talmud, and found its completest expression in the Sepher ha Zohar. . . . This religion of the 'Deified Man,' with which they were impregnated in Babylon, was only conceived as benefiting the Jew, superior and predestinated being. . . ." (M. Flavien Bernier, Les Juifs et le Talmud, 1913).
The Jewish writer Bernard Lazare said, "It is certain that there were Jews even at the cradle of Freemasonry -- Cabalistic Jews, as it is proved by certain existing rites . . . The Jew is also a builder: proud, ambitious, domineering, he tries to draw everything to himself. He is not satisfied with de-Christianising, he Judaises; he destroys the Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference, but he imposes his idea of the world, of morals, and of life upon whose faith he ruins; he works at his age-old task -- the annihilation of the religion of Christ!"
Mrs. Nesta Webster in Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, writes:
"The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion have been marvellously correct as prophecy, foreshadowing all of this in a remarkable way, whatever their first origin, before Maurice Joly used part of them in 1864."
"Dr. Ranking, who has devoted many years of study to the question . . . in a very interesting paper published in the masonic journal, Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, observes: 'That from the very commencement of Christianity there has been transmitted through the centuries a body of doctrine incompatible with Christianity in the various official Churches. That the bodies teaching these doctrines profess to do so on the authority of St. John, to whom, as they claimed, the true secrets had been committed by the Founder of Christianity, that during the Middle Ages, the main support of the Gnostic bodies and the main repository of this knowledge (Johannism) was the Society of the Templars.' And he further said, 'The record of the Templars in Palestine is one long tale of intrigue and treachery on the part of the Order'."
In his History of Magic, Eliphas Levi informs us:
"The Templars had two doctrines: one was concealed and reserved to the leaders, being that of Johannism; the other was public, being Roman Catholic doctrine. . . The Johannism of the adepts was the Kabalah of the Gnostics, but it degenerated speedily into a mystic pantheism carried even to idolatry of Nature and hatred of all revealed dogma. . . They fostered the regrets of every fallen worship and the hopes of every new cultus, promising to all liberty of conscience and a new orthodoxy which should be the synthesis of all persecuted beliefs. They went even so far as to recognise the pantheistic symbolism of the grand masters of Black Magic . . . they rendered divine honours to the monstrous idol Baphomet."
The mystic affiliations under the Pyramids of Egypt, the esoteric sect of Pythagoras, the astrologers or mathematicians of Rome in the time of Domitian, the House of Wisdom in Cairo, the Ismailis or Assassins, Companions of the Old Man of the Mountain, the Templars, the Rose-Croix (Rosicrucians), the Carbonari, the Jesuits, Freemasons, B'nai B'rith, Knights of Columbus, the Souffrants, the Chercheurs, Lodges of St. John, of Melchisedek, Royal Priests, Masters of the Wise, the Asiatic Brethren . . . all appear to form an uninterrupted chain of these superior affiliations . . . under the name of the Illuminati, under the Directing Power of the Invisibles -- Earthly beings -- Masters working on the Astral, whose self-appointed role was to be the arbiters and Masters of the World. jesuits.htm

So the Mason's do not acknowledge a
lonely Jewish Rabbi named Jesus, neither do a billion Muslims - heretics, infidels, burn them all.
It's funny how that Old Testament IHVH demands of Moses and his followers to not liken IHVH to any
graven image - and here we have millions of Catholics bowing to some graven, spindly Jesus on a cross.

Daniel Ellsberg Calls on People in Gov't to Leak Documents
"I am using every opportunity to say to people in the government who are in the position that I was then, and who know that their president is lying us into a wrongful and reckless war, to do what I wish I had done in 1964-65: to go to Congress and the press with documents and tell the truth. That would be a risk, but there are times when big risks are worth that to save a lot of lives."

>>> Former State Department employee and Rand analyst Daniel Ellsberg played a pivotal role in US history when in June 1971 he leaked thousands of pages of classified documents about the Vietnam war to the New York Times. The resulting court battle was a major First Amendment victory, and the "Pentagon Papers" helped end the war in Vietnam. Since then, Ellsberg has been reviled by many and held in high esteem by many others. (We'll give you one guess which camp The Memory Hole falls into.)
Ellsberg has released his memoirs, Secrets (Viking Press, 2002), and has gone on a speaking/booksigning/interviewing blitz across the US. During his interview with the Guardian of London, he repeated his call upon government employees and officials to follow his example by leaking documents that reveal important truths that are being hidden from the public. His clarion call is reproduced above.

>>> Former State Department employee and Rand analyst Daniel Ellsberg played a pivotal role in US history when in June 1971 he leaked thousands of pages of classified documents about the Vietnam war to the New York Times. The resulting court battle was a major First Amendment victory, and the "Pentagon Papers" helped end the war in Vietnam. Since then, Ellsberg has been reviled by many and held in high esteem by many others. (We'll give you one guess which camp The Memory Hole falls into.)
Ellsberg has released his memoirs, Secrets (Viking Press, 2002), and has gone on a speaking/booksigning/interviewing blitz across the US. During his interview with the Guardian of London, he repeated his call upon government employees and officials to follow his example by leaking documents that reveal important truths that are being hidden from the public. His clarion call is reproduced above.

Mossad - The World's Most
Efficient Killing Machine
By Gordon Thomas
Standing on a canteen table in down-town Tel Aviv, Israel's spymaster studied the men and women of Mossad.
In the few weeks since taking over Mossad, Meir Dagan knew he already commanded something his recent predecessors never managed. Respect.
Barely raising his voice he spoke.
"When I was fighting in Lebanon, I witnessed the aftermath of a family feud. The patriarch's head had been split open, his brain on the floor. Around him lay his wife and some of his children. All dead. Before I could do anything, one of the murderers scooped up a handful of brain and swallowed it. This is how you will all now operate. Otherwise someone will eat your brain."
His every word held them in thrall - even if they sent a shudder through some of his listeners, hardened as they were.
In the canteen were those who had killed many times already. Killing enemies who could not be brought to trial because they were hidden deep inside Israel's Arab neighbours.
Only Mossad could find and kill them. Rafi Eitan, the legendary former Operations Chief of Mossad told me when we sat together in his living room in a north Tel Aviv suburb:
"I always tried to kill when I could see the whites of a person's eyes. So I could see the fear. Smell it on his breath. Sometimes I used my hands. A knife, or a silenced gun. I never felt a moment's regret over a killing."
Meir Amit, when he had been director of Mossad, later insisted "we are like the official hangman or the doctor on Death Row who administers the lethal injection. Our actions are all endorsed by the State of Israel. When Mossad kills it is not breaking the law. It is fulfilling a sentence sanctioned by the prime minister of the day".
We spoke as he walked me through Mossad's own unique memorial in Tel Aviv to the dead - a concrete maze shaped in the form of a brain. Each name engraved on the concrete was of an agent who had been killed while trying to destroy Israel's enemies.
Some of those agents had one thing in common. Amit had sent them to their deaths.
"We did all we could to protect them. We trained them better than any other secret service. Sometimes, out on a mission, the dice is against you. But there will always be brave men ready to roll the dice," he said.
Dagan, his listeners in the canteen knew, was cast in the same mould. He would protect them with every means he knew - legal or illegal. He would allow them to use proscribed nerve toxins. Dum-dum bullets. Ways of killing that not even the Mafia, the former KGB or China's secret service use. But he would not hesitate to expose them to death - if it was for the greater good of Israel.
That was the deal those in the canteen had accepted when they were recruited. They, too, were ready to roll the dice.
Dagan, only the tenth man to head Mossad and bear the title of memune - "first among equals in Hebrew" - reminded his listeners sat on their plastic-form chairs what Meir Amit had once said. Then Dagan added:
"I am here to tell you those days are back. The dice is ready to roll."
Dagan jumped down from the table and walked out of the canteen in total silence. Only then did the applause start.
Shortly afterwards came the Mombasa massacre of eleven days ago. An explosive-laden land-cruiser drove into the reception area of the island's Israeli-owned Paradise Hotel.
Fifteen people died and 80 were seriously injured. Two shoulder-fired missiles nearly downed an Israeli passenger plane bringing tourists back to Tel Aviv from Kenya. Two hundred and seventy-five barely missed a Lockerbie-style death.
Meir Dagan immediately suspected it was the work of Osama bin-Laden's al-Quaeda and that the missiles had come from Iraq's arsenal.
But to suspect and prove would be the greatest challenge Mossad had faced since the War on Terrorism was launched by President Bush.
"Mossad would not be operating in its own backyard against suicide bombers. It would be working 1,500 miles away in a hostile environment. There would only be lip-service support from the authorities on the ground. Other intelligence services would be trawling through the evidence looking for clues that would fit their agendas. The CIA for a fix on bin-Laden. MI6 for a lead back to a threat to Britain. The same for the Germans," a senior intelligence man in Tel Aviv told me.
But for Meir Dagan it was time to roll the dice. Every person with proven field experience was on a plane to Kenya within an hour of the massacre.
They would sift and search the wreckage, using sophisticated equipment to do so. Detectors that could detect a sliver of metal deep inside a corpse - metal that would show where the explosives came from. And much else.
The team who would "roll the dice" travelled separately - as they always did. They had their own aircraft, their own pilots. They were the men and women of kidon, Mossad's ultra-secret assassination unit.
Their sole job in Mombasa was to find and kill the perpetrators of the massacre: those behind the three bombers who had gone to their deaths laughing. The kidon would kill the planners of the massacre after they had traced them to their lair - wherever it was. It might take months - as it had with avenging the murder of the Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. But the kidon would find the men behind the Mombasa outrage and kill them.
They would use a small laboratory of poisons, sealed in vials until the moment came to strike. They had long and short-blade knives. Piano wire to strangle. Explosives no bigger than a throat lozenge capable fo blowing off a person's head. An arsenal of guns: short-barrel pistols, sniper rifles with a mile killing range.
The team chosen to go to Mombasa had local language skills. They could pass for Arabs or for Indian traders. Between them, they spoke Swahili and other dialects. They dressed the part; they looked the part. They also understood the closed language of their world.
They had learned how to memorise fibres - precise physical descriptions of people. Neviof , how to break into an office, a bedroom, or any other given target and plant listening bugs - or a bomb. Masluh, the skill of shaking off a tail.
The women had learned how to use their sex. To be ever ready to sleep with someone to obtain vital information. The link between intelligence work and sexual entrapment is as old as spying itself. Meir Amit had said when he was Mossad's chief:
"Sex is a woman's weapon. Pillow talk is not a problem for her. But it takes a special kind of courage. It is not just sleeping with an enemy. It is to obtain information."
The kidon team had passed the two years course at the Mossad training school at Henzelia, near Tel Aviv. They had been sent to a special camp in the Negev desert. There they had learned to kill.
"They are taught how to use the weapon appropriate for the target. Strangulation with a cheese-cutter if the victim is to be killed at night. A handgun fitted with a silencer. A nerve agent delivered by an aerosol or injection," explained Victor Ostrovsky, a former member of kidon.
Ostrovsky, who today lives in Arizona, will not say who he has killed. But he quit Mossad - saying he could not "stomach the way they did things".
My sources in Mossad say he is "long past his sell-by date. We do things differently now".
And, by all accounts, more ruthlessly.
The man known to Mossad as "The Engineer" was a top Hamas bomb-maker. He lived on the West Bank, protected by gunmen.
One day he received a visitor - a distant cousin from Gaza. The young man spoke like so many from that hotbed of Islamic fanaticism.
Over mint tea, the two men spoke far into the evening. Finally, The Engineer invited his guest to stay over. The offer was accepted. The youth asked if he could use The Engineer's mobile phone to call his own family to say they should not worry.
He asked if he could make the call from outside the house to improve reception. The Engineer nodded. The call over, the two men fell asleep on the floor.
Next day, the youth left to return to Gaza. That morning, The Engineer received a call on the mobile. As he put the phone to his mouth and started to speak, his head was blown off.
The youth had been recruited by Mossad to plant a powerful explosive inside the phone. The detonation signal had come from a kidon half a mile away.
No one had seen him arrive. No one saw him go.
Over the past years, Mossad have killed scores of Israel's enemies by such methods.
"We try to never use the same method twice. Our technicians spend all their time devising new ways to kill," a Mossad source told me last week.
Their roll-call of Mission Successful includes; Fathi Shkaki, the leader of Islamic Jihad, and Gerald Bull, the rogue Canadian investor of Saddam's supergun.
The usual composition of a hit team is four. One is the "target locator". His task is to keep tabs on the victim's movements. Another is the "transporter", to get the team safely away from the killing area.
The remaining two men perform the execution. In the case of Gerald Bull they knocked on his front door late in the evening. The ballistic expert had just moved in. He had been assured he was safe by his Iraqi minders. But they had been lured away by some of the kidon back-up team.
These are known as sayanim - the Hebrew word for helpers. Throughout the world there are tens of thousands. Each has been carefully recruited to provide the kind of help that the kidon unit required to kill Bull.
The assassination was simple. Both kidon wore FedEx courier uniforms. One carried a package. The other knocked on the door. When Bull opened it, the package was thrust at him. As he stepped back he was shot - once in the forehead and once in the throat. He flew backwards into the hall. The package was retrieved, the door closed behind the dead Bull. Both men calmly walked away to where the "transporter" was waiting. In hours, the team was back in Tel Aviv.
Preparation for an assassination can take weeks, even months. The hit team, once selected, is moved to a Mossad safe house, one of many in Israel.
Eli Cohen, a former Mossad agent, told me that "a safe house looks like it was furnished from a car boot sale".
It was in one such safe house that the plan to assassinate Saddam Hussein was prepared.
It was elaborate even by Mossad standards. It revolved around killing Saddam during a visit to one of his mistresses.
Mossad agents in Baghdad had discovered that the woman, the widow of a serving Iraqi officer who had died mysteriously, would be driven from the palace to keep a tryst with Saddam in a desert villa outside the city.
Heavily guarded, the villa would be a hard target to hit.
But Mossad believed there was a window of opportunity between the time Saddam would land in his helicopter near the villa and enter its well-protected compound.
The plan to kill Saddam has long been on Mossad's agenda. But previous attempts had failed due to Saddam's obsession with changing his movements at the last moment.
Mossad believed he would not do so this time.
"The woman is irresistible," said a report from one of its Baghdad undercover agents.
Mossad had scouted an air corridor through which it believed a kidon could be flown in below Iraqi radar.
A final rehearsal was held in the Negev desert. Israeli commandos doubled as Saddam and his bodyguards - a party of five.
As they landed close to a replica of the villa, the kidon were in position. They were equipped with specially adapted shoulder-firing missiles. But their weapons were to only fire blanks for the rehearsal.
In a tragic mistake, one of the missiles had been replaced with a live one. It killed the make-believe Saddam and his bodyguards.
The operation was cancelled.
But last week Meir Dagan was said to be considering adapting it to once more try and kill Saddam.
After eleven days investigation, his teams in Mombasa confirmed the massacre had all the hallmarks of being an Iraqi-sponsored act carried out by al-Quaeda.
How and when Mossad will strike against Saddam is, understandably, a closely guarded secret.
But an intelligence sources suggested to me that a successful assassination of Saddam could see the looming threat of war recede.
"With Saddam out of the way there is no reason to invade Iraq. The people themselves will rise," said the source.
Dagan, the Mossad chief who could possible achieve that was born on a train between Russia and Poland. He speaks several languages. He is an action man, working 18 hour days. His private life is simple: he eschews the trappings of power that goes with the job of running MI6 or the CIA. His salary is a fraction of what their directors get. Three months into the job, he is adored by his staff.
In the past years, Mossad has experienced many publicised failures, a loss of morale and, worst of all, growing public criticism among its own people.
All that Meir Dagan is determined to change.
In his open neck shirt and chain store pants and sneakers, Dagan is no James Bond. The only spy fiction he is known to read is John Le Carre - because, he has told friends, he can at least empathise with its hero, Smiley.
Meir Dagan is also an avid reader of history of other intelligence services. It is said he knows more about the CIA and MI6 than many of its current employees.
He constantly reminds his staff that action cannot wait for certainty. That motive and deception are at the centre of their endeavours. That they must create situations which seek to draw fact out of darkness. For him the art of informed conjecture is an essential weapon.
Since Mombasa, Dagan has virtually worked and slept in his office. Its windows look eastwards to the Judean Hills. Beyond are the tribal badlands of Pakistan - where Dagan is convinced Osama bin-Laden is hiding - and the desert of Iraq through which Dagan believes Saddam will try and escape if war starts. The Mossad chief will be waiting.
Meantime, he is preoccupied with the latest news from Mombasa - and all those points east where his kidon team are tracking the planners of the outrage.
Some have gone to the Philippines. Others to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Mossad's scientists and pathologists, as well as field agents, katsas, have combed and bagged the clues from the Paradise hotel disaster area.
Every day an El Al plane has flown northwards to Israel with the evidence despite behind-the-scene protests by the Kenyan intelligence service.
Mossad agents in Nigeria have provided important details on al-Quaeda in that country. Katsas in South Africa have joined colleagues in Mombasa. From Rome, Malta and Cyprus, other Mossad agents sped down through Africa into the country's fierce heat.
Dagan's men are polite to the counter-intelligence officers from the CIA, MI6 and European services.
"But these are Israelis who are dead or injured. This is Mossad's job. And everybody had better remember that," said one Mossad source.
Mossad has made no friends on the ground. They rarely do. That is their style: go it alone. They believe they know more than anyone else in fighting terrorism. And they may be right.
In Tel Aviv, having done all he could for the moment, Meir Dagan waits.
The 57 years-old, battle-hardened hero of past wars in Lebanon, in all those places in the Middle East where the alleys have no names, has earned his reputation as a no-holds barred leader. In those days, with a handgun in his pocket and his dog at his heel, he had led from the front. Twice he had been wounded, so that nowadays he sometimes uses a walking stick. He dislikes doing so. He detests any sign of weakness in himself or in others.
Dagan is a blunt man, proud and imperious and prepared to stand on his record. He crushed the first Intifada in Gaza in 1971. Two years later he fought in the Yom Kippur War.
For him, Mossad, and ultimately Israel, the Mombasa massacre is a test - to show that Mossad is back on centre stage with a vengeance.
No other intelligence service has a better history of operations in Central Africa. In the 1960s Mossad drove out the vaunted Chinese Secret Intelligence Service. It stopped Cuba's Fidel Castro exporting his revolution into Africa. It beat the KGB at its own plans to turn the Congo into its playground. It was a dirty and deadly war.
A terrorist group ambushed a Mossad katsa in the Congo and fed him to the crocodiles. They filmed his last, threshing moments in the water - and sent the footage to the local Mossad station chief. He retaliated by placing a two-pound bomb under the toilet seat of the terrorist leader. It blew the villa apart. Twelve terrorists died.
Mossad built up a relationship with BOSS, the security service of the South African apartheid government. It sent a team to Pretoria to teach BOSS the art of sophisticated methods of interrogation. Israeli instructors showed them the black art of sleep deprivation, hooding, forcing a suspect to stand facing a wall for long hours, and mental tortures such as mock tortures.
"The one certainty is that if the Mombasa killers are caught Mossad won't bother with mock executions," said a Mossad source.
The methods Mossad uses are often outside the law. They have a unit that specialises in burglary - using far more sophisticated means than those employed by the infamous Watergate burglars. Their ineptitude led to the downfall of President Nixon.
They have a special team of scientists working at the Institute for Biological Research in Tel Aviv. They prepare the deadly toxins for the kidon.
Where other intelligence agencies no longer allow their agents to kill, kidon have no such restraint. They remain fully licensed to assassinate in the name of Israel once they have routinely convinced the incumbent prime minister of the need to do so.
Ariel Sharon needs little convincing.
Mossad's assassins routinely witness some of Israel's leading forensic pathologists at work so as to better understand how to make an assassination look like an accident.
They learn how a pinprick or small blemish left on a victim's skin can be a give away. They are shown how to ensure against this.
It makes them probably the most sophisticated lawfully-approved killers in the world.
This morning (Sunday) Meir Dagan, as he has done every day since the Mombasa attack, will awaken from a combat veteran's light sleep. This squat, barrel-chested man will take his customary cold water shower and eat his daily breakfast of natural yogurt, toast spread with honey washed down with several cups of strong black coffee.
Next he will study the latest reports from not only East Africa - but from all those areas where his team of hunters have now moved.
After briefing the prime minister on the scrambler phone that links Dagan to Ariel Sharon, the memune may spend an hour at an easel in the corner of his office - touching up one of the watercolour paintings which are the only known passion in his life.
But like everything else about him, they will remain under lock and key. Just as with his plan to assassinate Saddam Hussein, the first the world will know, if Mossad is successful, will be after it has happened.

What amazes me is that the CHRISTIAN RIGHT put this BEAST (Bush and Associates) into power. Without their support and votes, fake bioterror, unanticipated terrorist acts, corporate self-destructs, corrupt agents of doom, homeland harrassment, war for confiscation of oil, and the myriad of evil that trolls the White House would never have been possible. And now, it seems, that same CHRISTIAN RIGHT is either silent, or even when confronted with the facts, is still supporting these evil personages that pose as human beings. THE CHRISTIAN RIGHT is afaid to admit that THEY are responsible for establishing THE BEAST.
And, I just found out that now the government is considering requiring everyone to have a NATIONAL ID CARD. Thanks, Christian Right! Just what we needed.
