Brotherhood of Darkness
Too Many Clues
The plot of Agatha Christie’s novel, Murder on the Orient Express, will help you understand the story of the Brotherhood of Darkness. The murder took place on the elegant passenger train that traveled between Istanbul and Paris, linking the mystery of the East with the rationalism of the West. Agatha Christie’s book was eventually made into a motion picture with Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Jacqueline Bisset, Martin Balsam, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave, Richard Widmark, and Albert Finney, who played the part of Inspector Poirot. Shortly after the movie began, a group of passengers boarded the Orient Express in Istanbul. Among them was Inspector Hercule Poirot, a world-famous Belgian detective, and Mr. Ratchet, a wealthy man traveling with his secretary and butler. Shortly after the train departed, Mr. Ratchet approached Inspector Poirot and told him that someone had threatened to kill him. He offered the Inspector fifteen thousand dollars to protect him until they reached Paris, but Inspector Poirot refused. The train entered a tunnel, the movie screen went black, and when the lights came back on, Mr. Ratchet had disappeared. The next morning, he was found stabbed to death in his compartment. A railroad official asked Inspector Poirot to solve the crime, so he went to Mr. Ratchet’s compartment and began searching for clues. Everywhere he looked he found conflicting evidence, and he suddenly realized that the murder scene had been staged to confuse him. At that point he paused, surveyed the crime scene, and commented, “There are too many clues.”
In many respects, that is what is happening today. We are threatened by terrorism, biological warfare, environmental catastrophe, global warming, acid rain, water shortages, famine, AIDS, nuclear attack, aliens from outer space, a collapsing infrastructure, genetically altered foods, an imploding social system, rising crime, moral decay, a failing educational system and dozens of other real or imagined dangers. When we try to determine who, or what, is responsible for our problems, we are overwhelmed with facts and become confused. Psychologists call our condition cognitive dissonance. Pavlov produced a similar state in dogs. He found that if he conditioned them to salivate in response to the sound of a buzzer, then conditioned them to salivate in response to the sound of a bell, and then conditioned them to salivate in response to a third sound, when all three sound were transmitted together, the animals became confused and withdrew from reality.
Pavlov’s dogs lived in a laboratory where they were monitored. We live in a society where almost everything we see, hear, and read is monitored by those who control the media. Before we can confront our problems effectively, we must understand that someone, or some group, is manipulating our reality. We must free ourselves from their control and discover the truth.
Who Is Responsible for What Is Happening in the World Today?
Many people believe that the bankers are responsible for our problems because they have the ability to create money where none actually exists, and either lend it at exorbitant rates or use it to purchase industries, media outlets, property, or politicians. President Thomas Jefferson warned us about the danger of modern banking practices almost two hundred years ago when he wrote:
Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning,
is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by a deluge of
bank paper, as we were formerly by the old Continental paper. It
is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the
mercy of avaricious adventurers, who, instead of employing their
capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other
useful pursuits make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges
of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of
no useful industry of theirs. Prudent men must be on their guard in
this game of Robin’s alive, and take care that the spark does not ex- tinguish in their hands. I am an enemy to all banks discounting bills
or notes for anything but coin. But our whole country is so fascinated
by this Jack o’ lantern wealth, that they will not stop short of its total
and fatal explosion.
When Bill Clinton accepted the presidential nomination for the Democratic Party on July 16th, 1992, he said:
As a teenager, I heard John Kennedy’s summons to citizenship.
And then, as a student at Georgetown, I heard that call clarified
by a professor named Carroll Quigley….
Who was Carroll Quigley, and why is he important? He was a liberal university professor who taught at both Princeton and Harvard before taking a permanent position at Georgetown University. Unlike other historians who simply record past events, he wanted to know why things happened. In an effort to understand the tragic events of the twentieth century, he spent twenty years researching the men who ruled England and the United States between 1870 and 1960. He wrote about them in Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time. The Macmillan Company published his book, but shortly after it was released, another publisher bought Macmillan and promptly destroyed the plates to the first half of Professor Quigley’s book. Thousands of people had ordered copies, but the new publisher refused to reprint it. If you find that difficult to believe, skeptics are invited to read an excerpt of an interview with Professor Quigley in which he discusses the suppression of his book..
Why is banking important? Professor Quigley explained:
This power of the Bank of England and of its governor was admitted by most qualified observers. In January, 1924, Reginald McKenna, who had been chancellor of the Exchequer in 1915-1916, as chairman of the board of the Midland Bank, told its stockholders: “I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can, and do, create money….And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.”
Shortly after World War I began, our newspapers began printing stories about German atrocities. They claimed that German soldiers were cutting off the hands of Belgian boys, raping Belgian women and cutting off their breasts. The stories continued until people believed them and felt we had a moral obligation to intervene in the war. Why did newspapers print those stories?
On February 9th, 1917, Congressman Oscar Callaway inserted the following statement in the Congressional Record:
In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press of the United States. These 12 men worked the problem out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process, to retain only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the daily press throughout the country. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers. This contract is in existence at the present time, and it accounts for the news columns of the daily press of the country being filled with all sorts of preparedness arguments….
By 1917, J.P. Morgan and his associates controlled twenty-five of our most influential newspapers, so the atrocity stories could continue unimpeded and unchallenged by any news outlet of any prominence. The stories were designed to raise public support for American entry into World War I. It is in this manner still, that our media is used to shape public opinion and control the information that we are allowed to know.
The Central Bankers
Although there is a great deal of evidence to support the theory that bankers are responsible for what is happening, some people contend that the central banks are the real problem. They note that every nation has a privately owned central bank, and that every central bank in the world is affiliated with the Bank for International Settlements.
Dr. Dennis Cuddy wrote about that organization in his book, Secret Records Revealed:
On August 5th, 1995, the New York Times published an article by Keith Bradsher , in which he wrote:
“In a small Swiss city sits an international organization so obscure and secretive, that control of the institution, the Bank for International Settlements, lies with some of the world’s most powerful and least visible men: the heads of thirty-two central banks, officials able to shift billions of dollars and alter the course of economies at the stroke of a pen.”
On June 28th, 1998, the Washington Post published an article about the Bank for International Settlement (BIS) titled, “At Secret Meetings in Switzerland, 13 People Shape the World’s Economy,” which described these individuals as “this economic cabal…this secretive group…the financial barons who control the world’s supply of money.”
Professor Quigley explained central banking:
In addition to these pragmatic goals, the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank seeks to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in their respective countries, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.
The grass roots push for campaign finance reform is a direct result of the American public being fed up with the influence these monied controllers exercise over all politicians. Once these “cooperative politicians” have left office, one often finds them receiving an absurdly huge salary as a board member of a profitable Fortune 500 company.
This is what is happening in our country today. Central banks are trying to establish a system of global feudalism. Once you grasp the implications of that concept, you can understand why Professor Quigley’s book had to be suppressed.
The Jewish Bankers
Benjamin Disraeli became the Prime Minister of Great Britain in 1868, so we can assume he understood how the world financial system worked at that time. In 1844, he wrote a novel entitled Coningsby in which the hero of his book was told:
So you see, my dear Coningsby, that the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.
Disraeli described the man who controlled the financial markets of the world:
Europe did require money, and Sidonia was ready to lend it to Europe. France wanted some; Austria more; Prussia a little; Russia a few millions. Sidonia could furnish them all…He was lord and master of the money market of the world, and of course virtually lord and master of everything else…Monarchs and ministers of all countries courted his advice and were guided by his suggestions.
Although Sidonia was a fictional character, Nathan Rothschild controlled the financial markets of Europe in 1844 when Disraeli wrote his novel, and in those days the monarchs and the ministers of Europe courted Nathan Rothschild’s advice. The Rothschilds dominated French banking during most of the nineteenth century; in the twentieth century a number of Catholic and Protestant banks challenged their influence and eclipsed their power.
Those who believe that Jewish banks are responsible for our problems cite Benjamin Disraeli’s book and claim that he exposed the Jewish Banking conspiracy. Then they point to the Rothschilds, Kuhn, Loeb and Co., the Warburgs, the Lazard Bank, Lehman Brothers, and Goldman Sachs to justify their contention that Jewish bankers control the world. Although their arguments are convincing, until recently, several of the world’s largest banks were owned by the Japanese, and, according to Professor Quigley, during the early decades of the twentieth century, the three largest banks in the United States were owned by the Rockefellers, the Morgans, and the Mellons. The fourth largest bank was Kuhn, Loeb & Co., but it never controlled our banking system. Our fifth largest bank is the Bank of America. It was founded by an Italian immigrant.
We are indebted to professor Quigley for his analysis of the history of international finance. He found that the European central banks existed long before the House of Rothschild, and that powerful Catholic and Protestant banking firms have shared the European financial market with them. According to professor Quigley, Jewish banks played an important part in financing industrial development in Europe, but they never controlled the financial institutions of the world.
Alan Greenspan, chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, is Jewish, but Paul Volker and William McChesney Martin who preceded him, were not. Montague Norman controlled the Bank of England for twenty-five years, and he was a gentile.
As strange as it may seem, many Jewish banks are controlled by men who are not Jewish. Why did Benjamin Disraeli, who was Jewish, write a novel about a Jewish banking conspiracy? Why do some people believe that Jews are responsible for our problems? Because they have been deceived. The Brotherhood has disseminated false information in an effort to convince us that Jews are the source of our problem. In actuality, the Rothschild family is not Jewish, but there are those “behind the scenes” who would have us believe that they are, because anti-Semitism is a smokescreen created to conceal the identity of our true enemy.
The Council on Foreign Relations
Many well-informed people believe that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is responsible for our problems. They note that prominent bankers, industrialists, politicians, media owners, and almost everyone of any importance in the United States belongs to the CFR. Since 1953, every chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, and every chairman of the Disarmament Agency have been members, as have all but one American Secretary of State, all but on Deputy Secretary of State, and all but one director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, six of our last nine presidents have been CFR members. What is their objective?
Admiral Chester Ward belonged to the CFR for sixteen years. In his book, Kissinger on the Couch, which he co-authored with Phyllis Schlafly, he wrote:
The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common—they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States.
Senator Barry Goldwater tried to warn the American people about the CFR in his book, With No Apologies. He wrote:
Their goal is to impose a benign stability on the quarreling family of nations through merger and consolidation. They see the elimination of national boundaries, the suppression of racial and ethnic loyalties as the most expeditious avenue to world peace.
He then noted that CFR members control both of our political parties:
When we change presidents, it is understood to mean the voters are ordering a change in national policy. Since 1945, three different Republicans have occupied the White House. Four Democrats have held this most powerful post the world has to offer. With the exception of the first seven years of the Eisenhower administration, there has been no appreciable change in foreign or domestic policy direction. When a new President comes on board, there is a great turnover in personnel, but no change in policy. Example: During the Nixon years, Henry Kissinger, CFR member and nelson Rockefeller’s protégé’, was in charge of foreign policy. When Jimmy Carter was elected, Kissinger was replaced by Zbigniew Brzezinski, CFR member and David Rockefeller’s protégé’.
You would think that everyone would know of Senator Goldwater’s concern, but since CFR members control almost all of our media outlets, his warning was suppressed.
Many competent researchers are convinced that the Bilderbergers rule the world. Although they acknowledge the importance of the CFR, they note that it is an American organization, and they argue that the effort to create a global government must involve people from other nations. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands asked a group of prominent Americans and Europeans to help him determine the best way to establish a world government. The group met at the Bilderberg Hotel in Holland in 1954, and the name of the hotel where they first convened became the name of their organization. The Bilderbergers have met once a year ever since.
The first edition of Phyllis Schlafly’s book, A Choice Not an Echo, was published in May, 1964. Therein she described the secretive nature of the group:
Several years ago, the author of this book stumbled on clear evidence that very powerful men actually do meet to make plans which are kept secret from American citizens. While visiting at Sea Island, Georgia, this writer discovered the details of a secret meeting on nearby St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, held at the King and Prince Hotel, February 14-18, 1957.
The most elaborate precautions were taken to prevent Americans from knowing who attended this secret meeting or what transpired there. The participants at the St. Simon’s meeting were some of the biggest names in American politics, business and the press. As described by an eyewitness observer of that meeting: “Those who came were not the heads of states, but those who give orders to heads of states”—in other words, the kingmakers.
Officially called DeBilderberg group, the U.S. kingmakers were joined on St. Simon’s Island by a similarly select assortment of foreigners. The titular head of this secret group was Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.
Why aren’t the meetings of the Bilderbergers ever mentioned in the media? Because members of that organization control most of the major media outlets in the United States and Europe. Only a very powerful group can conceal its existence. Are the Bilderbergers the major force behind the effort to establish a world government?
The Trilateral Commission
Everyone who has studied the effort to unite the world recognizes the importance of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderbergers, but some people contend those groups are regional, and the New World Order will be established by the Trilateral Commission. They note that members of that organization control commerce and banking in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and point to Senator Barry Goldwater’s warning:
The implications in Governor Rockefeller’s presentation have become concrete proposals advanced by David Rockefeller’s newest international cabal, the Trilateral Commission. Whereas the Council on Foreign Relations is distinctly national in membership, the Trilateral Commission is international. Representation is allocated equally to Western Europe, Japan and the United States. It is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States.
Here we learn that the Trilateral commission intends to consolidate control over “the commercial and banking interests” of the world “by seizing control of the political government of the United States.” That is an incredible statement. You would think that every American would be aware of it, but tragically, that is not the case.
The Club of Rome
Some conspiracy theorists believe that European royalty are behind the current effort to unite the world. They acknowledge the importance of the groups cited, but they claim the King and Queen of Spain, and the Queen of the Netherlands are working with members of the club of Rome to create a world government under the control of the monarchs of Europe. Some of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world belong to the Club of Rome. In 1999, their internet site stated that their objective is to:
…Act as an international, non-official catalyst of change.
The internet site continued:
Another new development was the decision to invite prominent world figures who share the Club’s concerns to become Honorary Members. Although their positions may prevent them from taking a public stance, as in the case of the Queen of the Netherlands or the King and Queen of Spain, they can and do give valued moral support. Among the others are former President Gorbachev, former President Richard Von Weizsacker of Germany, the first President of newly democratic Czechoslovakia, Vaclav Havel, President Arpad Goncz of Hungary, President Carlos Menem of Argentina, and the Nobel Laureates Ilya Prigogine and Lawrence Klein.
Here we see European royalty working with the financial and political leaders of the world as “an international non-official catalyst for change.” Until recently, Maurice Strong was listed as a member of the Club of Rome. An article in the New Yorker magazine noted that:
The survival of civilization in something like its present form might depend significantly on the efforts of a single man.
And an article in National Review magazine in September 1997 stated:
A small cadre of obscure international bureaucrats are hard at work devising a system of “global governance” that is slowly gaining control over ordinary Americans’ lives. Maurice Strong, a 68-year-old Canadian, is the “indispensable many” at the center of this creeping UN power grab.
Who is Maurice Strong? Although he never graduated from high school, by the time he was twenty-one, he held an important position in international finance, and by the time he was thirty-one, he was the chairman of one of the largest financial advisory companies in the world. Currently he is a senior advisor to both Kofi Annan, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, and James Wolfensohn, president of the World Bank. Most people believe that Kofi Annan once headed the United Nations, but he was only a figurehead. Maurice Strong actually runs the UN and he has recently reorganized its administrative structure in preparation for assuming power when the world government is established. He has been the chairman of both the Earth Council and the World Resources Institute, a co-chairman of the Council of the World Economic forum, and a member of Toyota’s International Advisory Board. He has served as president of the World Federation of the United Nations Association, as a trustee of the Aspen Institute, as director of the World Future Society, and as a director of finance of the Lindisfarne Association. He was a founding endorser of Planetary Citizens, convened the Fourth World Wilderness Congress, and served as a trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation from 1971 to 1978. He was the Secretary-General of the First Earth Summit in 1972, of the Second Earth Summit in 1992, and of the Earth Summit Plus five in 1997. The Global Biodiversity Assessment Report (See Government by Decree for more information) represents concepts developed at the Second Earth Summit. It calls for the deconstruction of Western civilization and Maurice Strong has been quoted as saying:
Frankly, we may get to the point where the only way of saving the world will be for industrial civilization to collapse.
According to Larry Abraham and Franklin Sanders, Maurice Strong owned a two hundred thousand-acre ranch in Colorado called “The Baca”. They wrote:
Strong owns a large tract of land in Colorado, which they call “The Baca”. There, Strong and his wife are establishing an international community of spiritualists, “complete with monasteries, devotees of the Vedic mother goddess, amulet-carrying Native American shamans, Zen Buddhists, and even Shirley MacLaine. They are not only promoting a one-world government, they are also supporting a one-world religion to substitute for Christianity.
According to an article in West magazine, well-known people like Henry Kissinger and Robert McNamara have been guests at the Baca. Robert McNamara was Secretary of Defense during both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and sent our soldiers to fight, bleed, suffer and die in Vietnam, but refused to allow them to win that war. Why? Did it have anything to do with the New World Order and the New World religion that he and Maurice Strong seek?
Mikhail Gorbachev is a communist, and Maurice Strong is a capitalist, but both of them are associated with the Club of Rome, and they co-authored the Earth Charter, a plan for the civilization that lies ahead. Aren’t communists and capitalists supposed to be enemies? If you study the various groups and organizations that work behind the scenes, you will soon discover that communists and capitalists have always worked together because they are motivated by the same spiritual force, and they seek the same goal.
Did we really win the cold War? Some people contend that communism is still a threat because the CFR, the Bilderbergers, the Trilateral commission, and the Club of Rome are communist front organizations. They justify that belief by noting that Mikhail Gorbachev, a lifelong member of the KGB and the former dictator of the USSR, is currently working with members of the first three organizations, and is a member of a fourth, the Club of Rome. They also cite Bella Dodd, who was a member of the Central Committee of the American communist Party prior to World War II. Because she and her fellow communists were worried about how they would maintain contact with Moscow if war broke out, she asked a Soviet diplomat for instructions. She was told to contact one of three men living at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel if they needed to know the current Communist Party line. She immediately recognized the names of all three men because they were well-known financiers. When she learned they were authorized to speak for the Soviet Union, she realized that everything she believed about communism was a lie, and that Moscow was working with Wall Street. She subsequently left the party, became a Christian, and told her story to anyone who would listen. Thomas Schuman told a similar story. He was a member of the KGB until he defected to the West. While working in Moscow, he became aware of the fact that Western financiers were working closely with the leaders of the Soviet Union.
Nikita Khrushchev was the dictator of the USSR, but he was deposed and sent to Siberia shortly after David Rockefeller visited the Kremlin in 1964. People who believe that capitalism and communism work together ask: “Who had the power to fire the dictator of the USSR?” They also not that David Rockefeller praised Chairman Mao after returning from a trip to China in 1973. By then, Mao Tse-tung had slaughtered between forty and sixty million of his fellow countrymen, yet David Rockefeller wrote:
One is impressed immediately by the sense of national harmony. There is a very real and pervasive dedication to Chairman Mao and Maoist principles. Whatever the prize of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community purpose. General social and economic progress is no less impressive. The enormous social advances of China have benefited greatly from the singleness of ideology and purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in history.
David Rockefeller viewed the Chines revolution and its bloody aftermath as a successful “social experiment…the most important and successful in history”, because it “succeeded not only in producing more dedicated and efficient administration, but also in fostering high morale and community purpose.”
David Rockefeller was chairman of the Council on foreign Relations for over fifteen years, a Bilderberger and financed the formation of the Trilateral Commission.
Researchers who have studied socialism realize that communism and socialism have similar goals. J. Edgar Hoover discussed the similarity between the two concepts when he wrote:
In June 1957, Nikita Khrushchev, Soviet Communist Party boss, was interviewed before a nation-wide American television audience. With calm assurance he stated: “I can prophesy that your grandchildren in America will live under socialism. And please do not be afraid of that. Your grandchildren will not understand how their grandparents did not understand the progressive nature of a socialist society.”
Nikita Khrushchev advocated socialism in the United States, not communism. Every communist works to establish socialism because they are taught that socialism is a transitional stage between capitalism and communism. There are socialist organizations in every country, and the Socialist International coordinates the worldwide socialist movement. It is one of the four most powerful groups in the world, yet most people have never heard of it.
In England, the Labor Party acts as a front group for the Fabian Socialist Society, which was organized in 1884 by George Bernard Shaw and his friends. Shaw explained socialism in his book, An Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism, but his definition is seldom mentioned today because the Socialist International doesn’t want people to know what lies ahead. George Bernard Shaw wrote:
I also made it quite clear that socialism means equality of income or nothing, and that under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner, but whilst you were permitted to live, you would have to live well. As far as I know, I was the first Socialist writer to whom it occurred to state this explicitly as a necessary postulate of permanent civilization.
Leaders of both major political parties support socialism, but Republican leaders pretend to oppose it.
Norman Thomas was the leader of the Socialist Party in the United States. He wrote:
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name of Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until one day, America will be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.
On June 9, 1966, the Pittsburg press quoted Earl Browder, the former chairman of the American Communist Party, who said:
America is getting socialism on the installment plan, through the programs of the welfare state. There is more real socialism in the United States today than there is in the Soviet Union.
Socialists control most labor unions and use union dues to advance their legislative agenda. Despite the apparent conflict between union leaders and employers, in most cases there are secret agreements advantageous to both sides at the expense of the workers. Although socialists talk about democracy, their real goal is a world government under the control of an enlightened Elite. The socialist International coordinates its efforts with the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers and the Club of Rome. All of them work to establish a world government.
…we reject those features of traditional religious morality that deny humans a full appreciation of their own potentialities and responsibilities. Traditional religions often offer solace to humans, but, as often, they inhibit humans from helping themselves…
--Paul Kurtz in Humanist Manifesto I and II
Francis Schaeffer studied the decline of Western civilization, and he came to the conclusion that secular humanism is responsible for our problems because secular humanists advocate abortion, homosexuality, prisoners’ rights, socialism, world government and deny the existence of God. Every communist and every socialist is a secular humanist, and although every humanist is not a communist, every communist is a secular humanist.
The beliefs of secular humanism were codified in the second Humanist Manifesto where seventeen concepts were presented that changed the world. Humanist Manifesto II proclaimed that secular humanists:
1. Reject traditional religious beliefs, and seek “new human
purposes and goals.” Humanists proclaim there is “no divine
purpose or providence for the human species. No deity will save
us; we must save ourselves.”
2. Reject as both illusory and harmful the “promises of immortal
salvation or fear of eternal damnation “ which are the basis of
both Judaic and Christian beliefs.
3. Believe that “moral values derive from human experience. Ethics
are autonomous and situational,” and that we should “strive for
the good life, here and now.” Thus humanists believe that
individuals determine what is right and wrong.
4. Believe that “reason and intelligence” will guide mankind to a
5. Stress individual freedom without moral restraints.
6. Recognize “the right to birth control, abortion and divorce,” and
that “the many varieties of sexual exploration should not in
themselves be considered ‘evil’”. Thus humanists condone
homosexuality and other forms of sexual perversion.
7. Support concepts of individual freedom such as “an individual’s
right to die with dignity, euthanasia, and the right to suicide.”
8. Advocate democracy and participatory democracy rather than a
republican form of government.
9. Advocate “the separation of church and state and the separation
of ideology and state.” This program was designed to remove
both God and prayer from public schools.
10. Advocate “alternative economic systems,” and the need to
“democratize the economy.” Humanists promote socialism.
11. Advocate the “elimination of all discrimination based upon race,
religion, sex, age or national origin,” and “the right to universal
education.” They also oppose “sexism or sexual chauvinism.”
This requires government control over every aspect of our lives.
12. Support the ending of nationhood and national sovereignty and
advocate a “world community.”
13. State that “this world community must renounce the resort to
violence and force as a method of solving international disputes.”
They want a world government, which includes an international
14. Advocated that “the world community engage in cooperative
planning concerning the use of rapidly depleting resources.
Population growth must be checked.” This is the basis of
modern-day environmentalism and population control.
15. Propose foreign aid and birth control for developing nations.
16. Since “technology is a vital key to human progress,” they oppose
“any moves to censor basic scientific research on moral, political
or social grounds.”
17. Call for “international cooperation in culture, science, the arts and
technology across ideological borders. We must learn to live
openly together or we shall perish together.”
Most of the concepts that are advocated in the Humanist Manifestos I and II have been implemented, and their plan to introduce socialism, create a world government and undermine the Judeo-Christian beliefs of our nation are well on the way to completion.
The Tax-Exempt Foundations
Although there is a great deal of evidence to suggest that secular humanism is responsible for what is happening, their programs could never have been implemented without the support of the tax-exempt foundations. Some people believe that the great foundations are responsible for our current problems.
Following the communist takeover of China in 1950, the Senate appointed a special committee to investigate why our State Department placed an arms embargo on the Nationalist Chinese and brought Chairman Mao to power. The committee discovered that both the Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Foundation funded communist propaganda outlets in the years preceding the fall of China. The 83rd Congress commissioned Congressman B. Carroll Reece to investigate the tax-exempt foundations to determine why they had financed communist organizations. The Reece Committee discovered:
1. In 1915, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace launched a
propaganda program to force the United States into World War I.
2. Many of our large foundations were actively promoting communism and
3. The Rockefeller Foundation financed Dr. Alfred Kinsey’s badly flawed
study of human sexuality, and his effort to undermine the moral standards
of our nation.
4. The Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Educational Foundation and
the Ford Foundation had used their grant-making power to take over
American education and force our colleges and universities to abandon
their religious beliefs and moral standards.
5. The foundations influenced State Department policy and were largely
responsible for bringing communism to China.
6. The foundations were working to undermine our constitutional form of
A group of wealthy men set out to block the Reece Committee investigation. Congressman Wayne Hays was assigned to the committee to disrupt it. During one 185-minute testimony, he interrupted a total of 246 times, yet the media steadfastly refused to report what was happening. The Reece Committee discovered that the tax-exempt foundations were working closely with the Rhodes Trust, and that Rhodes Scholars were being assigned to strategic positions in our government. They cited Dean Rusk as an example. After returning from Oxford University, he worked for the Rockefeller Foundation until he was appointed Undersecretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs. In that position, he helped bring communism to China and involved us in the no-win war in Korea. When he left the State Department, he returned to the Rockefeller Foundation where he remained until President Kennedy asked him to become Secretary of State. He returned to government service, and was largely responsible for our involvement in the Vietnam War. In 1968, he left the State Department and became president of the Rockefeller Foundation.
Powerful men opposed the Reece Committee’s effort to investigate the foundations. They brought pressure to bear on congressional leaders, and funding for the Reece Committee was cancelled, which ended the hearings. Subsequently, Rene’ Wormser, the counsel for the Reece Committee, wrote Foundation: Their Power and Influence. Skeptics can verify the facts about what happened there. In the foreword to Rene’ Wormser’s book, Congressman B. Carroll Reece wrote:
I felt that the work left several important unanswered questions, of which the gravest was: to what extent, if any, are the funds of the large foundations aiding and abetting Marxist tendencies in the United States and weakening the love which every American should have for his way of life?
Some people insist that the Hierarchy is responsible for our problems. They are supposedly wise men who have evolved through successive cycles of reincarnation to reach a state of divinity; they are also called Ascended Masters, Masters of Wisdom, and The Elder Brothers. Before you reject that concept, you should know that many important people believe in the Hierarchy, and support their programs. The Lucis Trust, which has thousands of followers, promotes belief in the Hierarchy. It has offices in New York City, London and Geneva, Switzerland. Some of the most important men in the world belong to that organization. Gary Kah lists their names in his book, The Demonic Roots of Globalism. The fact that most people have never heard of the Lucis Trust or the Hierarchy reflects the degree of control that exists today over what the American people think.
Robert Muller belongs to the Lucis Trust and supports its objectives. He was Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations for many years, and his World Core Curriculum is currently being used in schools throughout the world to introduce students to occult thought. Alice Bailey organized the Lucis Trust in 1923 to publish and distribute her books, which were channeled to her by Djwhal Khul, her spirit guide. Her books, along with Madame Blavatsky'’ writings, are the foundation of New Age thought.
In 1988, the Lucis Trust sent a letter to its supporters inviting them to join in—“Meditation: Letting in the Light.”
At this point, you may not understand the term “the Light.” A clue to the meaning of that phrase can be found toward the end of their letter:
GROUP FUSION. We affirm the fact of group fusion and integration within the heart centre of the new group of world servers, mediating between Hierarchy and humanity….
ALIGNMENT. We project a line of lighted energy towards the spiritual Hierarchy of the planet, the planetary heart, the great Ashram of Sanat Kumara, and towards the Christ at the heart of the Hierarchy.
The passage is confusing because it is written in esoteric language in order to mislead all but the Elect. Note the reference to Sanat Kumara. Who is he? What is his connection with the Hierarchy? What part does he play in the current effort to establish a world government?
Some well-informed people believe that the Illuminati still exists, and that it is the major force behind the drive toward global government. Adam Weishaupt and four associates founded the Illuminati on May 1st, 1776. Their goal was to destroy all governments, all religion and to rule the world. Within a few years, they recruited a number of prominent men and began to infiltrate Masonic lodges across Europe. There they could work under a cloak of secrecy protected by blood oaths. Although the Illuminati was officially disbanded in 1785, it continued to exist within Freemasonry, and was the force behind the Jacobins and the French Revolution. The revolutionary movement of the nineteenth century culminated in the Communist Revolution in Russia and the establishment of a Bolshevik state. Why did the communists select May 1st, the day the Illuminate was founded, as their national holiday?
In 1797, the Abbe Barruel wrote Memoirs: Illustrating the History of Jacobinism. In part one, volume one, “The Anti-Christian Conspiracy,” he revealed that the Illuminati was the force behind Jacobinism. In the spring of 1798, Professor John Robison wrote Proofs of a Conspiracy, based on his personal knowledge of the movement. On July 4th, 1798, Timothy Dwight, president of Yale University, and the grandson of Jonathan Edwards, delivered a sermon, warning the American people about the influence of the Illuminati, and on October 24th, 1798, George Washington wrote a letter to William Russell expressing his concern about the influence of Jacobinism and the Illuminati in the United States. Prior to 1930, most people knew secret societies existed, and could at least name a few if them. But today, almost all mention of them has been removed from our textbooks, encyclopedias and reference books. As a result, most people have never heard of the Illuminati, the Jacobins, or the secret societies that fomented the bloody revolutions of the nineteenth century.
During the early decades of the twentieth century, the Encyclopaedia Britannica included a section on the Illuminati, but modern editions seldom if ever mention it. The following information can be found in volume fourteen of the 1910 edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica:
A short-lived movement of republican free thought, to whose adherents the name Illuminati was given, was founded on Mayday, 1776, by Adam Weishaupt (d. 1830), professor of Canon Law at Ingolstadt, an ex-Jesuit. The chosen title of this Order or Society was Perfectibilists. Its members, pledged to obedience to their superiors, were divided into three main classes; the first including "novices”, “minervals” and “lesser illuminati”; the second consisting of freemasons, “ordinary”, “Scottish” and “Scottish knights”; the third or “mystery” class comprising two grades of “priest” and “regent” and of “magus” and “king”. Relations with Masonic lodges were established at Munich and Freising in 1780. The order had its branches in most countries of the European continent, but its total numbers never seem to have exceeded two thousand. The scheme had its attraction for literary men, such as Goethe and Herder, and even for the reigning dukes of Gotha and Weimar. Internal rupture preceded its downfall, which was effected by an edict of the Bavarian government in 1785, banning the Illuminati and their activities.
Although the Illuminati was officially disbanded in 1785, Weishaupt’s followers were firmly entrenched in Masonic lodges by then, and blood oaths prevented other Freemasons from revealing the dark secrets they learned. Ninety-six years later, Albert Pike, the father of modern-day Masonry, wrote:
It was this same remembrance, preserved, or perhaps profaned in the celebrated Order of the Templars, that became for all the secret associations, of the Rose-Croix, of the Illuminati, and of the Hermetic Freemasons, the reason of their strange rites, of their signs, and above all, of their mutual devotedness and of their power.
Researchers who have studied the secret societies claim that the occult emblem on the back of the dollar bill represents the Illuminati. They point to the incomplete pyramid capped with a glorified eye and the reference to Novus Ordo Seclorum, the New Secular Order. They not the date at the base of the pyramid is MDCCLXXVI, which is 1776, the year the illuminati was formed. Why does an occult emblem appear on the back of our dollar bill? Does it really represent the Illuminati, or does it represent some other hidden group?
There are some sincere people who believe that the Jews or the Jewish bankers are behind the world conspiracy. There are many clues that lead people to that conclusion, but some diligent research will show that the evidence has been planted to divert attention away from the truth. That is not to say there are no people of Jewish extraction within the Brotherhood, but those who support that movement have renounced their belief in Judaism, and worship a different god. Anti-Semitism is a trap that has been baited to lead us away from the truth.
A number of convincing arguments are made to convince us that the Jews, or the Jewish bankers, are our enemy. The first is:
Many of the Bolsheviks were Jews, and almost all of the original members of Lenin’s Politburo were Jews.
There are several valid responses to that charge:
1. Although many of Lenin’s followers were Jews, all but one of them were subsequently executed, and that’s a poor way to reward Jews if they were the force behind the Bolshevik Revolution. Leon Trotsky was Jewish. He was tracked down in Mexico and brutally murdered.
2. All but one of Jesus’ original disciples were Jews, but does that make Christianity a Jewish conspiracy?
3. The third response can be found in Antony Sutton’s book, Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution. He noted that many Englishmen fought on our side during the Revolutionary War, but that didn’t make the Revolutionary War and English War.
Although Winston Churchill did write an article in The London Illustrated Sunday Herald in 1920, claiming that Zionism was the force behind Bolshevism, the response from the world media was very strange. Most people who have attacked Zionism have been vilified, but Churchill always had favorable press coverage. Was that because he was part of the Brotherhood, and his article was an attempt to shift responsibility for the Russian Revolution to the Jews?
Another point is made that Jacob Schiff provided $20 million to finance the Bolshevik Revolution. The following quotation can be found in the New York Journal-American, February 3rd, 1949:
Today it is estimated even by Jacob’s grandson, John Schiff, a prominent member of New York Society, that the old man sank about $20 million for the final triumph of Bolshevism in Russia. Other New York banking firms also contributed.
Those who believe that Jews, or Jewish bankers are responsible for communism invariably refer to that quotation. Did Jacob Schiff really help the Bolsheviks? Because of the progressive dumbing-down of our people, most Americans don’t realize there were two Russian revolutions. The first revolution was in March 1917 (or February if you use the Old Russian calendar), the second was in October of that same year. By then, World War I had been under way for three years, and almost every family had lost at least one member. The March revolution began in St. Petersburg when a contingent of military recruits refused to fire on anti-government demonstrators. When another army unit was sent to arrest them, they refused to obey their officers and joined the mutiny. Soon, almost every military unit in St. Petersburg was in revolt, and the anti-government demonstrations began to spread. In an effort to quell the uprising, the Czar ordered the Duma to disband so he could assume dictatorial control. When the Duma refused, the Czar was forced to abdicate. Alexander Kerensky was chosen to lead Russia until elections could be held. When it became obvious that he intended to continue the war, the German High Command approached Lenin, who was living in Switzerland. They knew he was a professional revolutionary, so they offered him money and transportation to go to Russia to overthrow Kerensky. Trotsky was living in the United States at the time. German agents sent him to Russia to help. When the two men arrived in St. Petersburg, they began building support for a counterrevolution. Initially, they were financed by Germany, but after the Bolshevik Revolution, when Lenin continued the war, the Germans cut off his funds. At that point, the Bolsheviks had to get money and supplies elsewhere.
What part did Jacob Schiff play in fomenting the Bolshevik Revolution? During World War I, the American State Department was responsible for collecting intelligence information. Their files confirm the fact that Jacob Schiff opposed the Czar, and after Kerensky took power, Jacob Schiff sent Kerensky a telegram congratulating him, but the Bolshevik Revolution didn’t take place until seven months later. Antony Sutton was a Resident Scholar at the Hoover Institute for many years. When he examined the State Department’s intelligence files, he found evidence that Jacob Schiff opposed the Bolsheviks and encouraged our State Department to oppose them as well. If that is true, where did the Bolsheviks get their money after the Germans stopped funding them?
It is not possible to understand what happened during that era unless you know about The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. The document first appeared in Russia in 1905; it claimed that Zionists were behind the wars and revolutions of the nineteenth century, and planned to seize control of the world. Many Russians believed The Protocols, and they began to persecute the Jews and destroy their property. When the Czar refused to intervene, Jacob Schiff began plotting to depose him. He provided revolutionary literature to the Russian soldiers captured by the Japanese during the Russo-Japanese War in 1905, and when they returned home, some of the soldiers were disillusioned with the Czar’s government. It is even possible that some of the soldiers who participated in the March revolution read Jacob Schiff’s literature, so he may have played a part in inciting the March revolution, but that was not the Bolshevik Revolution. When Antony Sutton researched the State Department intelligence files, he found documents showing that English and American financiers provided funding for the Bolsheviks, but that fact is never mentioned today. Could it be that the story of Jacob Schiff’s $20 million gift to the Bolsheviks was contrived to divert attention away from the real source of their funding?
The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion were circulated throughout Europe during the early decades of the twentieth century, and many people believed them. That led, at least in part, to the anti-Semitism that brought Adolph Hitler to power. Henry Ford circulated The Protocols in the United States and wrote a book entitled The International Jew, which claimed that Jewish bankers were responsible for World War I and the Bolshevik Revolution. Henry Ford supported the Nazis, and Hitler acknowledged his support by awarding him the highest German medal available to civilians. The Ford factories in Germany provided trucks, tanks and vehicles for Hitler’s war machine. That would have been logical if Henry Ford really believed that Jewish bankers were responsible for the Bolshevik Revolution, and Hitler opposed them. The problem is that Henry Ford also built a factory complex in Russia to help the faltering communist economy. Why did Ford promote anti-Semitism in the United States, support Adolph Hitler and support the Bolsheviks?
At the present time, Ford Motor Company has six factories in communist China, and plans to build more. Henry Ford helped the Bolsheviks in the 1930s, and today his company is helping the Chinese communists. Why?
It is impossible to understand what is happening today without understanding the origin of The Protocols. Contained within the papers of Colonel Edward Mandell House kept at Yale University, there is a copy of The Protocols of the Meeting of the Zionist Men of Wisdom. It was essentially the same document as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, but the wording was different, which suggests that it was a different translation of the original document.
The Protocols were written in French, smuggled into Russia in 1905, where they were translated into Russian and later transported to Great Britain, where Victor Marsden translated them into English. Copies of Victor Marsden’s translation are available in the United States today, but that translation is entirely different from the Colonel House version, which suggests that Colonel House’s version came from another source, perhaps from the original document. Who was Colonel House, and where did he get his copy of The Protocols. Was he an anti-Semite?
Colonel House was able to control the men who led the world between 1912 and 1938 because he had the ability to “ooze” thoughts into their minds. Arthur Howden Smith knew him, and commented on his unusual, mystical ability:
Colonel House would come into an office and say a few words quietly and after he had gone, you would suddenly become seized by a good idea. You would suggest that idea to your friends or superiors and be congratulated for it; it would work first rate, beyond your wildest dreams. You might forget about it. But some time, as sure as shooting, in cogitating proudfully over it, you would come to an abrupt realization that that idea had been oozed into your brain by Colonel House in the course of conversation.
Smith then described Colonel House’s account of his third meeting with Woodrow Wilson:
It was an evening several weeks later, when he had been paying me a visit, that I said to Mr. Wilson as he rose to go, “Governor, isn’t it strange that two men who never knew each other before should think so much alike?” He answered, “My dear fellow, we have known each other all our lives.”
By their third meeting, Woodrow Wilson was under Colonel House’s control. House was well aware of his ability to control others. I found an entry in his unpublished diary where he bragged about how he convinced Premier Clemenceau of France and Premier Orlando of Italy of something he knew wasn’t true. In January 1919, both men feared that the Bolsheviks intended to foment revolutions in their countries, and they wanted to send a military contingent to Russia to defeat the Bolsheviks. Colonel House wrote:
I had a heart to heart talk with Clemenceau about Bolshevism in Russia and its westward march. I made him confess that military intervention was impossible. Later in the afternoon, when Orlando called, I gave him very much the same kind of talk, and he too, agreed with my conclusions. I am trying, and have partially succeeded, to frighten not only the President, but also the English, French and Italians regarding what might be termed “the Russian peril.” Personally, I really do not believe there is as much danger as I make it to them. I would not confess that military intervention was an impossibility because I believe that it could be successfully accomplished if gone about properly. A voluntary and a mercenary army of very small proportions, equipped with artillery and tanks, would in my opinion do the work.
Here colonel House admits that he “made” both Clemenceau and Orlando “confess” that the use of military force against the Bolsheviks would be futile, yet he knew that wasn’t true. This is an example of how Colonel House was able to “ooze” ideas into the minds of the leaders of the Western world. Why did Colonel House want to protect the Bolsheviks?
James W. Gerard was the American ambassador to Germany during World War I. In his book, My First Eighty-three Years in America, he related another story about Colonel House. Representatives of the German government contacted Ambassador Gerard in February 1915 and asked him to notify President Wilson that they wanted to stop the war. The ambassador sent President Wilson a cable, but Colonel House replied, and told him that henceforth all communications with President Wilson were to be sent through him. Ambassador Gerard wrote:
In addition to the cable which I had already received informing me that Colonel House was “fully commissioned to act” he himself reminded me of my duty in his February 16 postscript. In his own handwriting were those words from House: “The President has just repeated to me your cablegram to him, and says he has asked you to communicate directly with me in the future.” All authority, therefore, had been vested in Colonel House direct, the President ceased to be even a conduit of communications.”
Ambassador Gerard commented on the power Colonel House had assumed:
He, who had never been appointed to any position, and who had never been passed upon by the Senate, was “fully instructed and commissioned” to act in the most grave situation. I have never ceased to wonder how he had managed to attain such power and influence.
Colonel House controlled President Woodrow Wilson, and the President did his bidding. Colonel House also controlled President Theodore Roosevelt and much of the social legislation enacted during the Roosevelt Administration involved programs that Colonel House advocated. Where did Colonel House get his ability to control people’s minds?
Before continuing, clarification is needed as to the source of the funds used to finance the Russian revolutions. It is impossible to understand what is happening today without an understanding of who was responsible for the first and second Russian revolutions.
When Cecil John Rhodes died, he left his fortune to the Rhodes Trust. Lord Alfred Milner assumed control of the trust, and of Rhodes’ secret society. Although he was never elected to public office, Lord Milner held many important government posts. During the first two-and-a-half-years of World War I, his agents held key positions in the British government, and when Lloyd George became Prime Minister, Milner’s men took control of England. Lloyd George recruited a staff to help him govern; four of the six members of his Secretariat were members of The Round Table, which was a front organization for the secret society that Lord Milner led. On February 24th, 1917, The Nation published an article discussing Lloyd George’s Secretariat:
…a little body of Illuminati, whose residence is in the Prime Minister’s garden, and their business to cultivate the Prime Minister’s mind. These gentlemen stand in no sense for a Civil Service cabinet. They are rather of the class of travelling empirics in Empire, who came in with Lord Milner, and whose spiritual home is fixed somewhere between Balliol and Heidelberg.
Lord Milner visited Russia in February 1917, shortly before the Czar was deposed. In his book, Czarism and Revolution, A. Goulevitch quoted responsible sources who claimed that Lord Milner financed the March revolution.
Sir George Buchanan was the English ambassador to Russia at the time of the Revolution. In his book, My Mission to Moscow, he spent sixteen pages defending himself against charges that he and the English government were responsible for the March revolution and the death of the Czar. After World War I, that accusation was made by a number of knowledgeable observers, but strangely it is never mentioned today. Why? Is it because there is a conscious effort to convince us that Jacob Schiff financed the Bolshevik Revolution?
The Round Table Magazine was published by the members of Milner’s secret society. Shortly after the Russian Revolution, the end of the monarchy in Russia had freed the people.
Following the Bolshevik Revolution, Lord Milner sent Bruce Lockhart to Russia as his personal envoy. In his book, British Agent, R.H. Bruce Lockhart described an incident he witnessed:
Another new acquaintance of these first days in bolshevik St. Petersburg was Raymond Robins, the head of the American Red Cross Mission. Although a rich man himself, he was an anti-capitalist, hitherto, his two heroes had been Roosevelt and Cecil Rhodes. Now Lenin had captured his imagination. Robins was the only man whom Lenin was always willing to see, and who ever succeeded in imposing his own personality on the unemotional Bolshevik leader. I returned from my interview in our flat only to find an urgent message from Robins requesting me to come see him at once. I found him in a state of great agitation. He had been in conflict with Saalkind, a nephew of Trotsky, and the Assistant Commissar for Foreign Affairs. Saalkind had been rude, and the American, who had a promise from Lenin that, whatever happened, a train would always be ready for him at an hour’s notice, was determined to exact an apology or to leave the country. When I arrived, he had just finished telephoning to Lenin. He had delivered his ultimatum, and Lenin had promised to give a reply within ten minutes. I waited, while Robins fumed. Then the telephone rang and Robins picked up the receiver. Lenin had capitulated. Saalkind was dismissed from his post. He was an old member of the Party. Would Robins have an objection if Lenin sent him as a Bolshevik emissary to Berne? Robins smiled grimly. “Thank you, Mr. Lenin,” he said, “As I can’t send the (expletive deleted) to hell, ‘burn’ is the next best thing you can do with him.”
Who can give orders to the dictator of Russia? Do you remember the story about Nikita Khrushchev, the Russian dictator who was reassigned to a post in Siberia after another prominent American visited Russia? Is it possible there is a force that even Russian dictators must obey?
Raymond Robins represented William Boyce Thompson of the Federal Reserve Bank, Colonel House, and J.P. Morgan. Bruce Lockhart noted that he and Robins were invited to Bolshevik Executive Committee meetings, and consulted on important decisions. In his book, The Creature from Jekyll Island, G. Edward Griffin wrote:
The Bolsheviks were well aware of the power these men represented, and there was no door closed to them. They were allowed to attend meetings of the Central Executive committee, and were consulted regarding important decisions.
Isn’t it strange that an Englishman and an American were invited to attend such important meetings?
Raymond Robins worked for William Boyce Thompson, who was a member of the Federal Reserve Board. When Antony Sutton researched the State Department intelligence files, he found several references to the fact that William Boyce Thompson gave Lenin $1 million. In addition, he found that Lenin nationalized every bank in Russia except the Rockefeller-controlled National City Bank, which remained open and continued to provide funds for the Bolsheviks.
Where did the Bolsheviks get the food and medical supplies they needed to consolidate their control over Russia? Herbert Hoover headed the American Relief Mission following World War I. On May 28th, 1919, he wrote to President Wilson:
As a result of the Bolshevik economic conceptions, the people of Russia are dying of hunger and disease at the rate of some hundreds of thousands monthly in a country that formerly supplied food to a large part of the world. The Bolsheviki has resorted to terror, bloodshed and murder to a degree long since abandoned even amongst reactionary tyrannies.
At that time, Lenin and his followers held only a small area; the remainder of the country was under the control of those who wanted to restore freedom to the Russian people. Considering the brutality and inhumanity of the Bolsheviks, you would think that most of our relief supplies would have been sent to the anti-Communists, but that was not the case. Herbert Hoover catalogued the destination of the food and medical supplies we sent to Russia:
Food, clothing and medical supplies:
27,588 tons sent to the areas controlled by the anti-Communists.
740,571 tons sent to the areas controlled by the Bolsheviks.
Charity from the United States:
$332,508 sent to the areas controlled by the anti-Communists.
$55,994,588 sent to the areas controlled by the Bolsheviks.
Those figures dwarf the $20 million Jacob Schiff supposedly sent to the Bolsheviks, yet Herbert Hoover’s statistics are never mentioned today.
In order to facilitate trade, the Bolsheviks needed an international bank. They selected several former tsarist bankers and representatives from German, Swedish and American banks to serve on their board of directors. Funds for the Soviet bank came from England, and the director of the Foreign Exchange division of the Bolshevik bank was Max May, a vice president of Guaranty Trust Company, a J.P. Morgan bank. Thus, we find that British and American bankers largely controlled the Bolshevik’s central bank.
General Wrangel led the White Russian army in southern Russia. His forces were defeating the Bolsheviks until British agents ordered him to withdraw his army to the Black Sea and leave Russia. He was told that if he refused, they would cut off his source of supplies, and his men would perish. English agents destroyed the airplanes he had purchased, and eventually General Wrangel was forced to abandon his effort to free Russia.
Admiral Kolchak led the anti-Communist army on the eastern front. He, too, was defeating the Bolsheviks, until his supplies were cut off by the British and American financiers who had been funding him. Once the banks had extracted the economic concessions they wanted from Lenin, they stopped supporting his enemies.
In his three-volume set, Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development, Antony Sutton documented the fact that Russian communism has been financed by Western banks and Western corporations since its inception. In his book, Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, he documented the fact that Rockefeller and Morgan banks provided the Bolsheviks with loans, while American industry provided them with the plants and the technology they needed. Westinghouse, Henry Ford, Averill Harriman, Armand Hammer, Exxon and other American firms built the infrastructure that allowed the Soviet Union to survive. The same thing is happening today.
In 1983, John Lehman, Secretary of the Navy, told the graduating class at Annapolis:
Within weeks, many of you will be looking across just hundreds of feet of water at some of the most modern technology ever invented in America. Unfortunately, it is on Soviet ships.
In 1982, Senator William Armstrong addressed the United States Senate, and said:
America’s budgetary woes would not be nearly so severe if our economy were not groaning under the strain of financing two military budgets: Our own, and a significant portion of the Soviet Union’s. This great irony for Americans who will be asked to tighten their belts in order to pay for our defense needs is that much of the additional money that must be spent on defense is required to offset Soviet weapons that probably could not have been built without our assistance. It is difficult to overstate the extent to which the West had contributed to the military threat that now endangers our very existence.
As was noted earlier, most Jewish banks are controlled by those associated with either the round Table or its American counterpart, the Council on foreign Relations. Did Jacob Schiff really give the Bolsheviks $20 million? No documentation can be found to verify this, but what is documented is the fact that the major funding for the Bolsheviks came from non-Jewish sources. There are those who would like us to believe that Zionism is the primary force behind the effort to establish a world government. It is not.
Some people believe that the Jesuits are behind our current problems. Ignatius Loyola organized the Society of Jesus during the sixteenth century. It was to be an army of priests dedicated to the defense of the Catholic faith and the Pope. In recent years, the goal of the Order has changed, and many priests are currently promoting Liberation Theology and Marxism. Malachi martin wrote about the tragic turn of events in his book, The Jesuits. The same dark spiritual forces that have permeated other religious organizations have taken over the Society of Jesus and diverted if from its original calling.
Other people contend that the Knights of Malts are part of the problem. That Order was established in the twelfth century, it is also known as the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, the Knight of the Order of the Hospitaller, and The Sovereign Military Jerusalemite Order of Malta. Membership is restricted to Catholics, and those who join must swear allegiance to the organization, and to the Pope. Because it is one of the oldest secret societies, and because some members of the Order are working to establish a world government, there are those who contend that the Knights of Malta is an important part of the effort to establish a global government.
Some Catholics believe Protestants are responsible for what is happening. They validate their opinion by noting that many Protestants are Masons, and one of the major objectives of the Craft is the destruction of the Catholic Church. There is a good deal of evidence to substantiate their claim. Many of the men who signed our Constitution were Masons, and a Masonic architect was commissioned to design the street plan for Washington, D.C. Every federal building in our nation’s Capitol bears a Masonic plaque, and five of our last eleven presidents have been Masons; Bill Clinton was a member of DeMolay, a Masonic club for boys. According to the book Ten Thousand Famous Freemasons, most of our state governors, judges and legislators have been, or are, Freemasons. The Masonic Order controlled the United States Supreme Court between 1941 and 1971, and drastically changed our society. Four of the six Supreme Court Justices who voted to remove God and prayer from the public schools were Masons: Tom Clark, William O. Douglas, Earl Warren and Hugo Black. Why did they do that? Because Masons worship the Great Architect of the Universe, and the goal of Masonry has always been to change our nation from a Christian country to a secular society. They have accomplished their objective.
Most Masons are honest, God-fearing men, so why did the Craft destroy our Judeo-Christian heritage? Manly P. Hall, the most distinguished Masonic philosopher of modern times says in his book Lectures on Ancient Philosophy:
Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity –an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect. It is necessary to establish the existence of these two separate yet interdependent orders, the one visible and the other invisible. The visible society is a splendid camaraderie of “free and accepted” men enjoined to devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic and humanitarian concerns. The invisible society is a secret and most august fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysterious arcanum arcanorum (a secret or mystery). In each generation, only a few are accepted into the inner sanctuary of the work….
Most Masons don’t understand the purpose of the Craft. Only those who are selected to join the invisible fraternity are permitted to learn the “secret or mystery.”
Paul Fisher’s book, Behind the Lodge Door, is an excellent source of information on Freemasonry. He wrote:
Indeed, between 1941-1971, Masons dominated the Supreme Court in ratios ranging from 5 to 4 (1941-1946, 1969-1971) to 8 to 1 (1949-1956). During that 30-year period, the Court erected a “ wall” separating things religious from things secular. It was an epoch when prayer and Bible reading were deracinated from public education. Masons have succeeded in having their religion dominate American society.
Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas was a Freemason. When he addressed the American Bar Association in Louisville, Kentucky, in the 1960’s, he bragged about how he and his fellow justices had turned our Constitution on its head. Their goal was to destroy our way of life, and they have succeeded.
The New Age Movement
Up until a few years ago, the Freemasons published The New Age magazine, but they changed the name of their magazine to The Scottish Rite Journal when another magazine with the same name became available. The new magazine reflected the beliefs of the New Age. Marilyn Ferguson explained that movement in her book, The Aquarian Conspiracy:
A leaderless but powerful network is working to bring about radical change in the United States. Its members have broken with certain key elements of Western thought, and they may even have broken continuity with history. This network is the Aquarian Conspiracy. It is a conspiracy without a political doctrine. Without a manifesto. With conspirators who seek power only to disperse it, and whose strategies are pragmatic, even scientific, but whose perspective sounds so mystical that they hesitate to discuss it.
Marilyn Ferguson suggests that Zbigniew Brzezinski, the former director of our National Security Council, embraces their longing for a new spirituality. He was chosen by David Rockefeller to organize the Trilateral Commission, and that group’s logo consists of three intertwined sixes, i.e. 666. It is very similar to the logo found on Marilyn Ferguson’s book. The Bible tells us that 666 is the number of the Beast, the Antichrist who will one day rule the world.
Thousands of world leaders embrace New Age beliefs, and their occult philosophy is gradually replacing secular humanism in our schools. New Age concepts include exploration of human sexuality, environmentalism, worship of Mother Earth and embracing a different god.
The Order of the Quest
Some people believe that The Order of the Quest is the force behind unfolding world events. Manly P. Hall wrote about it in his book, The Secret Destiny of America. He noted that members of that secret group placed an unfinished pyramid on the back of the Great Seal of the United States back in 1782:
On the reverse of our nation’s Great Seal is an unfinished pyramid to represent human society itself, imperfect and incomplete. Above floats the symbol of the esoteric orders, the radiant triangle with its all-seeing eye. There is only one possible origin for these symbols, and that is the secret societies that came to this country 150 years before the Revolutionary War. There can be no question that the great seal was directly inspired by these orders of the Quest, and that it set forth the purpose for this nation.
After members of The Order placed the occult emblem on the back of the Great Seal, it remained hidden there for almost 150 years until Henry Wallace convinced President Roosevelt it should be displayed on the back of the dollar bill. Both men were 32nd degree Scottish Rite Masons, and Henry Wallace was a Theosophist. The unfinished pyramid symbolizes the fact that society is not yet complete. According to Manly P. Hall, the United States is destined to restore the legacy of Lost Atlantis, the glorious civilization Plato wrote about in his book, The Republic. Manly P. Hall claimed that The Order sent Adepts here shortly after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. Their assignment was to prepare our nation to become the Novus Ordo Seclorum, the secular state that one day would reconstitute Atlantis and rule the world.
Some people believe the Rosicrucians are the primary force behind world events. The Order of the Knights of the Rose-Croix is an ancient secret society. It originated with Christian Rosenkreutz, a German knight who traveled to the Near East to study Oriental magic. When he died in 1484, he transmitted his arcane knowledge to eight disciples who swore they would never reveal his secrets outside their Order. Accordingly, the esoteric beliefs of the Rosicrucians have remained hidden through the centuries, although their theology is very similar to the concepts of both the Gnostics and the Kabalists. All three groups claim that the Holy Scriptures reveal only part of the truth, and to understand the ageless wisdom, you must study their teachings.
There are four Rosicrucian sects today; one of them operates the Rosicrucian temple in San Jose, California.
Albert Pike tells us that all of the Mystery Religions pursue the Holy Word that was lost:
…it was this same remembrance, preserved, or perhaps profaned in the celebrated Order of the Templars, that became for all the secret associations, of the Rose-Croix, of the Illuminati, and of the Hermetic Freemasons, the reason of their strange rites, of their signs, and, above all, of their mutual devotedness and of their power.
What was the source of the power of those groups? It was their secret knowledge.
Skull and Bones
Many people believe that the Skull and Bones is the primary force that controls the world. It was organized in 1832 as Chapter322 of a German secret society and has maintained its occult traditions by operating as a fraternity where secret oaths and bizarre customs are accepted as normal. Some people believe it was an extension of the Illuminati, although that cannot be proven. All we can be certain of is that the Illuminati continued to exist long after it was outlawed, and Adam Weishaupt died just nineteen years before Skull and Bones was chartered at Yale University. The group is known by many names. Some people call it The Order; others refer to it as The Brotherhood of Death; still others refer to it as The American Establishment. As far as we know, there are no other chapters in the United States.
For over one hundred and sixty-five years, prominent families have sent their sons to Yale University to become Bonesmen. Once they are inducted into the fraternity, they are assured of prominent positions in life. Many become bankers, captains of industry, or politicians. All Bonesmen help their brethren to advance in society. One example is the Bush family. Prescott Bush joined the Skull and Bones in 1917; his son, President George H. Bush, was selected a generation later; his grandson, President George W. Bush, was inducted two generations later. Only fifteen candidates are selected each year, but once they are members, they become part of the ruling Elite.
Many Bonesmen have joined the Council on Foreign Relations. They are part of the small clique that controls that organization.
Skull and Bones controlled the Yale newspaper so no one could criticize them. In 1873, an anonymous group formed an independent newspaper called Iconoclast, and wrote:
We speak through a new publication, because the college press is closed to those who dare to openly mention “Bones”. For more than forty years a secret society called Skull and Bones has existed in Yale College. By observing the men elected from year to year, we find that they are chosen with a distinct end in view, namely, that of obtaining for the society the most honors. Out of every class, Skull and Bones takes its men. They have gone out into the world and have become, in many instances, leaders in society. They have obtained control of Yale. Year by year the deadly evil is growing.
Nothing has changed. Here are the names of some of the families who have had sons inducted into the Order of the Skull and Bones: Whitney, Phelps, Bundy, Lord, Rockefeller, Harriman, Weyerhaeuser, Perkins, Stimson, Taft, Wadsworth, Gilman, Payne, Davison, Pillsbury, Bush, and Sloane.
The Theosophical Society
Others believe that theosophy is the hidden force that rules the world. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky organized the Theosophical Society in 1875. Although she had little formal education, she wrote two books that changed the world. Both The Secret Doctrine and Isis Unveiled were channeled to her by Koot Hoomi, a spiritual master who met in India. Many prominent people became Theosophists after reading her books. Arthur Conan Doyle, who created Sherlock Holmes, was a Theosophist, as was William Stead, the man who helped Cecil Rhodes organize his secret society. Thomas Edison was one of Madame Blavatsky’s most famous disciples. By following her teachings, he learned to meditate, and during his periods of contemplation, he accessed the occult power she promoted. That was the source of his genius and the force behind his amazing career. Because of his dedication to Madame Blavatsky’s teaching, he changed the world in which we live.
The Theosophical Society exists today. It has libraries in both Wheaton, Illinois, and Ojai, California. Every year, thousands of people join together to pray for the knowledge and understanding that comes from the Ageless Wisdom.
Corrine McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson co-authored the book Spiritual Politics, in which they discussed Madame Blavatsky’s influence on Western culture:
Over the last hundred years, the Ageless Wisdom has spread widely in the West, beginning with the work of the Russian Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. Her seminal book, The Secret Doctrine, published in 1888, synthesized Christian, Jewish and Islamic mysticism with the Eastern teachings of Hinduism, Taoism and Buddhism, showing their common roots and comparing their sacred texts. During her extensive travels in the East, Blavatsky worked directly with several Indian and Tibetan masters who helped her record and explain Ageless Wisdom for the West.
The origin of the New Age movement, environmentalism, Christian apostasy and modern-day occultism can be traced back to Madame Blavatsky and Theosophy.
Have you ever wondered how Adolph Hitler seized power in Germany, or why he and his henchmen slaughtered millions of helpless human beings? Almost everyone has heard of the six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust, but very few people have heard of the twelve million others who were killed in Hitler’s death camps. How can we explain such barbarity, and the fact that knowledge of the deaths of the twelve million “others” has been suppressed?
Adolph Hitler read Madame Blavatsky’s book, The Secret Doctrine, nightly. That was the source of his power and his ability to control others. After the war, Winston Churchill suppressed efforts to expose Adolph Hitler’s occultism. Why?
Corrine McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson wrote:
Winston Churchill reportedly insisted that the black magic of the Nazi party not be revealed to the general public after the war, and the Allied prosecution and judges at Nuremberg consciously ignored the occult aspects of the Nazis’ tremendous power and cruelty.
Margaret Sanger was a Theosophist, and her eugenic policies and birth control programs were products of her occult beliefs.
Henry Wallace was a Theosophist. He convinced President Roosevelt that the occult emblem on the back of the Great Seal of the United States should be printed on the back of the dollar bill. He later ran for president with the support of the Communist Party.
These secret societies and many others not mentioned, such as the Royal Institute for International Affairs, P2 (a Vatican-based secret society said to count George Bush Sr. as a member), British Intelligence, the CIA, and the Tavistock Institute have also been blamed as major “guiding forces behind the policies of the world’s governments.
The Murder on the Orient Express
Now, let’s return to our story of The Murder on the Orient Express. Inspector Poirot realized that someone had altered the crime scene to confuse him. Then he found a piece of burned paper with the two words written on it, “Daisy” and “Arms.” At that point, he began to wonder if Mr. Ratchet’s murder was related to the murder of Daisy Armstrong. Daisy was a beautiful little girl who lived with her parents in New England until she was abducted by two men. The kidnappers assured Daisy’s parents they would return their daughter if the ransom was paid, but when they got the money, they murdered Daisy and fled. One of them was apprehended, tried, and sentenced to death. Shortly before he was executed, the condemned man revealed that his accomplice was a man named Crosetti, but Crosetti was never found.
Daisy’s mother was overcome with grief and died while giving birth to a stillborn child. The police suspected the Armstrong’s maid was involved in the kidnapping, and they questioned her repeatedly. Although the young woman was innocent, she became despondent, jumped from a window and died. Daisy’s father, Colonel Armstrong, was a retired Army officer. Faced with four tragic deaths, he took his own life, so there were five deaths associated with Daisy Armstrong’s murder. When Inspector Poirot assembled the evidence, he noted that everything pointed to the fact that Mr. Ratchet was the second kidnapper, Crosetti, and when he questioned the passengers, he found that several of them had known the Armstrongs. One was Mrs. Armstrong’s godmother; another had been the Armstrong’s cook. The family’s chauffeur was there, as was the father of the girl who committed suicide. Could that have happened by accident? New clues kept appearing, and it soon became apparent that they were all designed to conceal the identity of the person, or persons, who had murdered Crosetti.
In many ways we face the same dilemma today. How can we possibly determine who is responsible for our problems when there are so many clues and so many suspects?
When Monsieur Poirot completed questioning the passengers on the Orient Express, he was amazed to find that all of them had either known Daisy Armstrong, or a member of her family, and all of them had a motive to kill Mr. Ratchet, a.k.a. Crosetti. The inspector also suspected they were all concealing what they knew about the crime. He wondered how he would solve the murder when there were so many suspects and so many clues. We face the same problem today. Many groups and organizations are working to establish a world government and a New World religion. The media is lying to us, conservative organizations are deceiving us, and our political leaders are doing everything possible to keep us from learning the identity of our enemy.
When Inspector Poirot finished questioning the passengers on the Orient Express, he was left with two possible explanations for the crime. The evidence suggested that someone had boarded the train, killed Crosetti and escaped, but the Inspector knew most of the evidence was contrived. The second possibility was that all of the passengers were involved. Since there were twelve passengers, and twelve stab wounds in the victim’s body, each of them must have stabbed him once. Inspector Poirot assembled everyone in the lounge car, and announced that he had solved the crime. First, he discussed the possibility that an unknown person killed Crosetti, but he promptly ruled out that theory. Then he noted that each of the passengers had both a motive and an opportunity to commit the crime, and suggested that all of them were involved. When he finished his presentation, several of the passengers began to weep, while others sat stoically, realizing their plot had been discovered.
They had all participated in the murder because Crosetti had escaped punishment. Suddenly Inspector Poirot changed his line of reasoning and announced that he planned to tell the police that the killer must have escaped since it was ridiculous to suggest they were all guilty. As the movie ended, the passengers breathed a collective sigh of relief and began to celebrate their success. What does Agatha Christie’s story have to do with the Brotherhood of Darkness? It has everything to do with it. All of the groups listed previously are working to establish a New World order and a New World religion, with the exception of the Jews as a race. Our enemy is not a race or a religion. It is a spiritual movement that involves people of all races and all religions, including some apostate Jews. How can we understand what is happening today?
Professor Quigley told us that Cecil John Rhodes created a secret society to bring the uncivilized world under the control of the British Empire and reunite the United States with England. Frank Aydelotte, the American director of the Rhodes Trust, added that Rhodes wanted to organize
…so great a power as to hereafter render wars impossible…
That concept gradually evolved into the current effort to unify the world. Professor Quigley believed Rhodes’ idea originated with Professor John Ruskin, who taught Art Appreciation at Oxford University during the early years of the second half of the nineteenth century. Professor Quigley told us that Cecil Rhodes attended Professor Ruskin’s inaugural lecture in 1870, copied the lecture in long hand, and carried it with him the rest of his life. That is true, but the most important part of the story has been ignored. Professor Quigley failed to grasp the significance of the fact that John Ruskin was an occultist. Through the centuries, some men and women have sought the forbidden knowledge, and if they discovered it, they fulfilled their obligation by dedicating their lives to uniting the world. Plato advocated that goal, and John Ruskin read Plato every day. When Cecil Rhodes heard Professor Ruskin’s clarion call, he was consumed with a desire to dedicate his life to uniting the world. Others who fell under Ruskin’s influence joined him, but most of them were under the influence of another power, the second most important power in the world.
Below is a quotation from Cecil Rhodes’ Confession of Faith. He wrote:
In the present day, I become a member of the Masonic order. I see the wealth and power they possess, the influence they hold, and I think over their ceremonies and I wonder that a large body of men can devote themselves to what at times appears the most ridiculous and absurd rites without an object and without an end. The idea gleaming and dancing before one’s eyes like a will-o-the-wisp at last frames itself into a plan. Why should we not form a secret society with but one object, the furtherance of the British Empire, for the bringing of the whole uncivilized world under British rule for the recovery of the United States, for the making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire.
Although Cecil Rhodes never understood the Masonic rites, or the significance of the oaths he took, he remained in the Lodge because it gave him access to the money he needed to purchase the gold and diamond mines of southern Africa. If you study the lives of those who joined him, you will discover that most of them were either Freemasons, spiritualists, Theosophists, or members of the Society for Psychical Research. Lord Milner was a 33rd Degree Mason, William T. Stead was a spiritualist and a Theosophist, and Arthur Balfour was a spiritualist, a Mason and a member of the Society for Psychical Research. What most researchers have missed is the fact that most of the men who joined Cecil Rhodes’ secret society were involved in the occult.
To grasp the significance of what is happening today, you must understand the oaths that Cecil Rhodes and many of his followers took when they became Masons. When a candidate is inducted into the First Degree of the Blue Lodge, he is blindfolded, a noose is placed around his neck, his left chest is bared, his left pants leg is rolled up, and he is told to take off his shoes and kneel before the Worshipful Master of his Lodge. He must then swear that he will never reveal what he is about to learn. Although there are some minor variations in wording throughout the world, all Masonic oaths are similar in content. Upon entering the Entered Apprentice degree, each candidate must swear:
All this I most solemnly, sincerely promise and swear, with a firm and steadfast resolution to perform the same, without any mental reservation or secret evasion of mind whatever, binding myself under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea, at low-water mark, where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours, should I ever knowingly violate this, my Entered Apprentice obligation, so help me God…
When a candidate enters the Fellow Craft, or second degree of Masonry, he agrees to have the following done to him if he ever violates his oaths of secrecy:
…my breast torn open, my heart plucked out, and given as prey to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field…
Upon entering the third degree, the Initiate agrees to have his
…body severed in twain, my bowels taken from thence and burned to ashes, and scattered before the four winds of heaven…
During each ceremony, the candidate is asked, “What do you desire most?” He is told to respond either “the Light” or “more Light,” but he is never told what the Light represents. What happens when an initiate asks the Light into his life? Before revealing the secret the Elect have guarded for thousands of years, be warned that once you learn it, you will never again look at things in the same way again.
Albert Pike was the leading Masonic philosopher of the nineteenth century, and he remains the most revered Mason of all time. His body is interred at the House of the Temple in Washington, D.C., and his statue stands close by. Until 1974, his book, Morals and Dogma, was given to every Scottish Rite Freemason who reached the 14th Degree, and it is still recommended on all Masonic reading lists. On page 104 of Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike referred to “the Truth which it calls “Light.” He wrote:
Masonry conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it.
That is an incredible statement. Albert Pike admits there is an intentional effort to deceive Initiates who enter the Lodge about
…the Truth, which it calls Light.
On page 819 of Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike reveals that:
The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Parts of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them, but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry.
The Blue Degrees are the first three levels of Masonry. Once again, Albert Pike admits that there is an intentional effort to deceive those who enter the Craft. Why are they misled? Because if Initiates understood the true implications of the Masonic ceremonies, most of them would flee in terror. On page 781 of Morals and Dogma, we read:
If you reflect, my Brother, you will no doubt suspect that some secret meaning was concealed in these words.
What was concealed? Albert Pike tells us that the Rites of Masonry are used to conceal “…some secret meaning…” but he never tells his readers what the “secret meaning” is. On page 219 we read:
That Rite raises a corner of the veil, even in the Degree of Apprentice; for it there declares that Masonry is a worship.
Albert Pike tells us that “Masonry is a worship,” yet Masons deny the Craft is a religion. How can there be worship without a religion? Who do they worship? They worship the Great Architect of the Universe, but most Masons have no idea what that entity represents. On page 840 of Morals and Dogma, we learn:
It was the remembrance of this scientific and religious Absolute, of this doctrine that is summed up in a word, of this Word, in fine, alternately lost and found again, that was transmitted to the Elect of all the Ancient Initiations: it was this same remembrance, preserved, or perhaps profaned in the celebrated Order of the Templars, that became for all the secret associations, of the Rose-Croix, of the Illuminati, and of the Hermetic Freemasons, the reason of their strange rites, of their signs more or less conventional, and, above all, of their mutual devotedness and of their power.
That statement was designed to help those entering the 32nd Degree of Scottish Rite understand the secret of Masonry. They are told that the “Word” (the secret knowledge) was transmitted to the leaders of the Ancient Initiations (the Elect), preserved by the Templars, and then passed down through the Rose-Croix (the Rosicrucians), and the Illuminati to the Freemasons. The “Word,” or secret knowledge was incorporated into the symbolism of their rites. What is the “secret”? When an initiate learns the mystery of his Craft, he has access to “power”.
Manly P. Hall was the leading Masonic philosopher of the twentieth century. His book, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, reveals there are two levels of Masonry, an outer fraternity everyone knows about, and an inner fraternity dedicated to the study of “the mysterious arcanum arcanorum.” Manly P. Hall wrote:
Freemasonry is a fraternity within a fraternity—an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect. The visible society is a splendid camaraderie of “free and accepted” men enjoined to devote themselves to ethical, educational, fraternal, patriotic and humanitarian concerns. The invisible society is a secret and most august fraternity whose members are dedicated to the service of a mysterious arcanum arcanorum.
You cannot understand the significance of either the dark force that energized Cecil John Rhodes, or the strange symbol on the back of the dollar bill, until you understand the mysterious “arcanum arcanorum”. Have you ever wondered why there is an unfinished pyramid capped by an “all-seeing eye” on our currency? Experts tell us:
The Eye of God on the seal is a symbol representing spiritual vision that was used in many secret societies, including the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons. The ancient Egyptian priesthood called it the “Eye of Horus”. The pyramid is a symbol of material power and was used by many ancient cultures as an initiation chamber.
The number thirteen denotes evil and bad luck. Superstition holds that Friday the thirteenth is a dangerous date, and many hotels don’t have a thirteenth floor, but few people know why. Jacques De Molay, the leader of the Knights Templars, was arrested on Friday, October 13, 1307. Other writers tell us:
…the number thirteen embodies a key quality for the United States, as it appears repeatedly in the Great Seal as well as being the number of original colonies. Throughout the seal, the number thirteen is used thirteen times—in the number of stars, clouds around the stars, stripes, arrows, leaves and berries in the olive branches, feathers in the tail, layers of stones in the pyramid, number of letters in E Pluribus Unum and in Annuit Coeptus…
The term Novus Ordo Seclorum beneath the pyramid alludes to the “new Secular Order” that is coming. The Roman numeral MDCCLXXVI (1776) refers to the year our Declaration of Independence was signed, as well as the year the Illuminati was created.
Many P. Hall explained the origin of the occult emblem on the back of the dollar bill:
For more than three thousand years, secret societies have labored to create the background of knowledge necessary to the establishment of an enlightened democracy among the nations of the world…
Men bound by a secret oath to labor in the cause of world democracy decided that in the American colonies they would plant the roots of a new way of life. Brotherhoods were established to meet secretly, and they quietly and industriously conditioned American to its destiny for leadership in a free world…
On the reverse of our nation’s Great Seal is an unfinished pyramid to represent human society itself, imperfect and incomplete. Above floats the symbol of the esoteric orders, the radiant triangle with its all-seeing eye. There is only one possible origin for these symbols, and that is the secret societies, which came to this country 150 years before the Revolutionary War.
The emblem was placed on the back of the Great Seal of the United States in 1789, and hidden from public view until Henry Wallace convinced President Roosevelt it should be displayed on the back of the dollar bill. Both Henry Wallace and President Roosevelt were 32nd Degree Masons. Henry Wallace was also involved in other occult activities.
Some historians trace the origin of modern-day Masonry back to the Knights Templar, a religious order that was organize in Jerusalem in 1118. The Templars were supposed to guard the pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land, but many of them were far more interested in learning the forbidden knowledge of the Sages. After the Moslems seized Jerusalem in 1187, a group of Templars returned to Europe and used their esoteric knowledge to amass a great deal of wealth. They soon became the central bankers of Europe, and both the Catholic Church and the monarchies began borrowing from them. It seemed that everything the Templars did turned a healthy profit. Then, in 1307, Jacques de Molay, their leader, was arrested and accused of heresy; several years later, he was burned at the stake. Some of his followers escaped to Scotland, where they lived out their lives in obscurity. Many people believe that modern-day Masonry carries on the traditions of the Templars because both the York Rite and the Scottish Rites of Freemasonry offer Knights Templar degrees.
Catholic historians claim the Order was suppressed because it blasphemed God, and note that many Templars confessed their heresy. Masonic researchers claim the Templars were outlawed because the papacy and the monarchies didn’t want to repay their loans, and the confessions were invalid because they were extracted by torture. How can we discover the truth about the suppression of the Knights Templars? Manly P. Hall had access to the hidden knowledge. He wrote:
Was Jacques de Molay burned by the Holy Inquisition merely because he wore the red cross of the Templar? What were those secrets to which he was true even in death? Did his companion knights perish with him merely because they had amassed a fortune and exercised an unusual degree of temporal power? It was not the physical power of the Templars, but the knowledge which they had brought with them from the East, that the church feared. The Templars had discovered part of the great arcanum; they had become wise in those mysteries which had been celebrated in Mecca thousands of years before the advent of Mohammed: they had read a few pages from the dread book of Anthropos, and for this knowledge they were doomed to die.
According to Manly P. Hall, the Templars were suppressed because they discovered the secret of “the dread book of the Anthropos.” Now you must reread the instructions given to candidates entering the 32nd Degree of Masonry:
It was the remembrance of this scientific and religious Absolute, of this doctrine that is summed up in a word, of this Word, in fine, alternately lost and found again, that was transmitted to the Elect of all the Ancient Initiations: it was this same remembrance, preserved, or perhaps profaned in the celebrated Order of the Templars, that became for all the secret associations, of the Rose-Croix, of the Illuminati, and of the Hermetic Freemasons, the reason of their strange rites, of their signs more or less conventional, and, above all, of their mutual devotedness and of their power.
Albert Pike goes on to explain that the secret of Masonry originated with the Ancient Magi, was imperfectly revealed by the Gnostics, and guessed at by the Templars. He writes:
The Occult Science of the Ancient Magi was concealed under the shadows of the Ancient Mysteries: it was imperfectly revealed or rather disfigured by the Gnostics; it is guessed at under the obscurities that cover the pretended crimes of the Templars; and it is found enveloped in enigmas that seem impenetrable, in the Rites of the Highest Masonry.
Magism was the Science of Abraham and Orpheus, of Confucius and Zoroaster. It was the dogmas of this Science that were engraved on the tables of stone by Hanoch and Trismegistus.
Here we learn that the secret of Masonry can be found in the teachings of Zoroaster. His followers believe there are two gods, a good god and an evil god, a God of Light and a God of Darkness; the evil god is also known as “the Demon.” They believe the two forces are in constant conflict, and according to Albert Pike, the battle began in the Garden of Eden. He tells us:
The Prince of Darkness made Adam, whose soul was of the Divine Light, contributed by the Eons, and his body of matter, so that he belonged to both Empires, that of Light and that of Darkness. To prevent the light from escaping at once, the Demons forbade Adam to eat the fruit of “knowledge of good and evil,” by which he would have known the Empire of Light and that of Darkness. He obeyed; an Angel of Light induced him to transgress, and gave him the means of victory; but the Demons created Eve, who seduced him…
This is one of the most important passages you will ever encounter.
According to Albert Pike, God was “the Prince of Darkness,” and “the Demon.” The Serpent of Eden, was “an Angel of Light.” Is this madness, or something far more sinister?
What is the secret that has been handed down through the ages? The answer can be found on page 321 of Morals and Dogma, where you will discover the source of “the Light” that Masons seek. Albert Pike wrote:
…Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish Souls? Doubt it not! For traditions are full of Divine Revelations and Inspirations…
Manly P. Hall clarified Albert Pike’s statement when he wrote:
When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands…
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky became a Mason, and later channeled the three volumes of her book The Secret Doctrine. Adolph Hitler, Margaret Sanger, Thomas Edison, William T. Stead, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry Wallace and many others read her books and embraced her philosophy. Her beliefs are the basis of Alice Bailey’s writings, the Lucis Trust, and the New Age movement. In volume two of The Secret Doctrine, Madame Blavatsky wrote:
In this case it is but natural to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light,” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil”—can only be regarded in the light of a Savior…And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” and Lucifer, or “Light Bearer,” is in us: it is our Mind—our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior from pure animalism. Without this principle, we would be surely no better than animals.
Now you know the secret that has been passed down through the ages. The Ancient Magi, the Adepts of the Mystery Religions, the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, the Templars, the Rosicrucians, the Illuminati, and the Hermetic Freemasons all worshipped Lucifer. In return, he gave them wealth and power. Most Masons have no understanding of the mysterious arcanum arcanorum, but they are used by those who do. The occult religions are only part of our problem. The Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergers, the Trilateral Commission, the Club of Rome, and almost all of the other groups listed previously can be traced back to the occult.
Six of our last nine presidents have been members of the Council on Foreign Relations, and at least five of our last eleven presidents have been Masons. Another president, William Jefferson Clinton, was a senior member of the de Molay, boys’ club for Masons, which explains why the Republican senators who are Masons opposed his impeachment. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and President Harry Truman packed the United States Supreme Court with Masons, and between 1941 and 1971; they controlled the highest court in our land. During that thirty-year period, they removed God, prayer, and the Bible from our schools, in an effort to destroy the Christian heritage of our nation. They also centralized power in Washington D.C., in an effort to destroy our federal system.
The leaders of Masonry are working to replace our republican form of government with an authoritarian system, create a nonsectarian religion, and unite the world under their control. Their plan was laid out in the New Age magazine in 1950:
God’s plan is dedicated to the unification of all races, religions and creeds. This plan, dedicated to the new order of things, is to make all things new—a new nation, a new race, a new civilization and a new religion, a nonsectarian religion that has already been recognized and called the religion of “The Great Light.”
Looking back into history, we can easily see that the Guiding Hand of Providence has chosen the Nordic people to bring in and unfold the new order of the world. Providence has chosen the Nordics because the Nordics have prepared themselves and have chosen God…
Benjamin Disraeli wrote Coningsby. In that novel, a financier named Sidonia claimed the world was ruled by a secret cabal. Disraeli was obviously referring to Nathan Rothschild, who was the most powerful financier in the world at that time, and since Nathan Rothschild was Jewish, Disraeli’s book has been used to document the existence of a Jewish conspiracy. Why did Disraeli promote that belief when both he and Nathan Rothschild were Jewish? Because both were Masons. The Lodge has always sought to divert attention away from its influence, and anti-Semitism has been used to conceal Satan’s agenda. Both the American Civil Liberties Union and the Anti-Defamation League have strong ties to Masonry, which explains their anti-Christian bias, and why the ADL criticized Senator Joe Lieberman, a practicing Jew, when he advocated religion-based morality during the 2000 elections.
J.P. Morgan was instrumental in forcing our country into World War I. He and his associates funded the Bolsheviks and the Nazis, and he helped organize the Council on Foreign Relations.
Henry Ford built automotive factories for both the communists and the Nazis, received a medal from Adolph Hitler, and wrote The International Jew, which claimed that Jewish bankers financed Bolshevism. He distributed anti-Semitic material through his newspaper, and his closest friend, Thomas Edison, was a Theosophist. The Ford Foundation has funded a number of communist front organizations, and was cited by a Senate investigating committee for financing the Institute of Pacific Relations, which brought communism to China. Henry Ford was both a spiritualist and a 33rd Degree Mason. Why was he given Masonry’s highest degree when he was known to be an anti-Semite?
Andrew Carnegie and Cecil Rhodes were friends. The directors of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace planned World War I, and the mounted a propaganda campaign to force us into that war. They financed the Lucis Trust and worked to establish a world government. Andrew Carnegie was a spiritualist.
Colonel Edward Mandell House manipulated the leaders of the Western world during the early decades of the twentieth century, and helped J.P. Morgan organize the Council on Foreign Relations after World War I. A copy of the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion was found among House’s papers at Yale University, which suggests he was involved with either the writing or the distribution of that scurrilous document. New Age writers tell us he was an occultist.
President Truman carried a copy of Lord Tennyson’s poem in his wallet throughout his life. He packed the United States Supreme Court with Masons, ceded China and Eastern Europe to the communists, created the United Nations, involved us in a no-win war in Korea, and fired General MacArthur when he wanted to win that war. Harry Truman was a 33rd Degree Mason.
Winston Churchill referred to Lord Tennyson’s poem as “the most wonderful of modern prophecies.” During World War I, he was responsible for the British invasion of Gallipoli, where 216,000 British soldiers and 150,000 Turks fell in battle. During World War II, he insisted on the invasion of North Africa, despite the opposition of our military planners. Then he did everything he could to delay the invasion of Europe, he opposed an invasion of southern France, insisted on invading Italy, brought Marshall Tito to power in Yugoslavia, despite the fact that he was a communist, and intentionally prolonged the war for over a year. That delay resulted in millions of additional deaths. Most Holocaust victims were killed during the closing months of the war; had the Allies been allowed to invade Europe in 1943, most of the Jews would have been spared. Winston Churchill was both a Mason and a Druid. He wanted to demonstrate the futility of war, and he succeeded.
How can we understand such crass indifference to human suffering? Remember Manly P. Hall’s words:
When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands…
Does the average Mason understand what is happening? Of course not, but most of them believe our country should be a secular society, and they work toward that goal. Unfortunately, the oaths they have taken cloud their understanding of the spiritual battle in which we are engaged.
What part does communism play? Reverend Richard Wurmbrand was living in Romania when the communists took over that country. He was arrested, imprisoned, and tortured for fourteen years to force him to renounce his faith. Many of the ministers who were imprisoned with him recanted their beliefs under torture, and they died broken men. When Reverend Wurmbrand was finally released, he set out to discover why his tormentors were intent on destroying his faith. When he read the early writings of Karl Marx, he discovered that Marx wasn’t an atheist; he was a Satanist. Karl Marx didn’t believe in communism, but he embraced it in an effort to destroy Christian civilization.
Mikhail Gorbachev was the dictator of the USSR and the director of the Soviet KGB before he came to the United States. Maurice Strong, Stephen Rockefeller, and Mikhail Gorbachev wrote the Earth Charter, which calls for a world government and a new spirituality. Gorbachev’s State of the World Forum meetings always have an underlying theme of occultism.
Recall the letter sent by the Lucis Trust that referred to the great Ashram of Sanat Kumara and to the Light. Sanat Kumara is an anagram for Satan; the Light represents Lucifer.
Barbara Marx Hubbard is one of the leaders of the New Age movement. In her book, The Book of Co-Creation, she discusses the hidden meaning of the Revelation of St. John the Divine. Her manuscript was channeled by a spirit she called the Christ Light. She quoted from Revelation 6:8:
And I looked, and behold a pale horse; and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And Power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
The “Christ Light” explained the true meaning of that passage:
Out of the full spectrum of human personality, one-fourth is electing to transcend with all their heart, mind and spirit…One-fourth is resistant to election. They are unattracted by life ever evolving. Their higher self is unable to penetrate the density of their mammalian senses. They cannot be reached…they are defective seeds.
Now, as we approach the quantum shift from creature-human to co-creative human, the destructive one-fourth must be eliminated from the social body. Fortunately, you, dearly beloveds, are not responsible for this act. We are. We are in charge of God’s selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse. Death.
We come to bring death to those who are unable to know God. We do this for the sake of the world…
The riders of the pale horse are about to pass among you. Grim reapers, they will separate the wheat from the chaff. This is the most painful period in the history of humanity…
You do not have to participate in the destruction. You are to be responsible for the construction, which shall begin as the tribulations come to an end.
Barbara Marx Hubbard has been a consultant for our Department of Defense, and she ran for the Democratic Party’s vice-presidential nomination in 1984.
God and Satan are involved in a cosmic struggle for the souls of mankind, and each of us is involved whether we want to be or not. The battle is being waged in our courts, our media, our schools, our banks, our military, our churches and in our government. It appears that God has given Satan free reign to do as he pleases to determine how we will respond. Perhaps these are the last days, and nothing can be done to turn back the tide of destruction that Barbara Marx Hubbard and her followers anticipate, but who can be certain? What are we to do? We must be watchers, and warn others. If we remain silent, the blood of the needlessly slaughtered will be on our hands.
Saint Paul warned us about the spiritual forces that are aligned against us when he wrote:
Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
