“This is going to get very freaky,” says Frank Albo, grinning, as he walks backwards into the foyer of the Manitoba Legislature. We follow him past the security desk to a massive staircase flanked by a pair of giant bronze bison, an emblem for the prairie province. Except these bison towering over us represent protective, horned beasts guarding the entrance to a temple. Wait, what? “The building is an encyclopedia of sacred knowledge,” says Albo in his blue ball cap, hoodie and white sneakers. The Manitoba Legislature was designed by a Freemason architect who, Albo asserts, merrily reconstructed King Solomon’s Temple in the heart of Winnipeg in 1920. While that may sound cultish, the intent was less creepy. Albo maintains that Frank Worthington Simon built a temple’s protective hallway, altar and other features to purify and improve people in the building. Freemasons are a secretive group that believes geometry was a sacred science given by God to the builder of Solomon’s temple. They started as a guild for stone masons in the Middle Ages and live on as a boy’s social and philanthropy club (and wellspring of endless conspiracy theories). When the Leg was built, a whack of sitting politicians were Freemasons. They either didn’t know or didn’t mind that the Golden Boy on top of the building is actually Hermes, the patron of Freemasons and messenger to the gods, an Ark of the Covenant sits (unopened) on the roof and eight cattle skulls are busy deflecting evil inside the building.

In The Secret Teachings for All Ages, celebrated 33rd-Degree Freemason Manly P. Hall said:
Not only were many of the founders of the United States Government Masons, but they received aid from a secret and august body existing in Europe, which helped them to establish this country for a peculiar and particular purpose known only to the initiated few. The Great Seal is the signature of this exalted body—unseen and for the most part unknown—and the unfinished pyramid upon its reverse side is a trestleboard setting forth symbolically the task to the accomplishment of which the United States Government was dedicated from the day of its inception.[i]
Hall spoke of many things regarding the Freemasonic symbolism of our capital city, but by far the most powerful signature of intent by the society, as Hall just stated, is the Great Seal. He didn’t even try to hide the fact that the Seal involves a “task”—a “peculiar and particular” one that our nation was “dedicated” to by our founding fathers from “inception”!
Hermes Trismegistus of the Hermetic Corpus wisdom texts prized by the Rosicrucians (and by extension, the Freemasons) regaled his disciple with a principle for the workings of the universe: “As Above, So Below.” This code is so buried in esoteric mysticism today that you find it even modeled by “The Magician” in the tarot deck; one of his hands holds a wand toward Heaven, and the other points to the earth, signifying the magician’s (and alchemist’s) role in the metaphysical link between Heaven and earth—and this artwork is a direct result of the “As Above, So Below” maxim. Straight from Trismegistus’ Emerald Tablet writing from the Hermetica is the explanation of this mystical connection:
That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing. And just as all things have come from this One Thing, through the meditation of One Mind, so do all created things originate from this One Thing, through Transformation.[ii]
To those who are understandably confused by this obscure and cryptic text and what this “One Thing” might be, consider what Nikki Scully writes about the Emerald Tablet in her book, Alchemical Healing: A Guide to Spiritual, Physical, and Transformational Medicine:
The basic tenets of alchemy are distilled in the Emerald Tablet, one of the most quoted and studied of the guiding treatises of alchemical lore.… The Tablet suggests that “that which is above is the same as that which is below: All that exists is of One Mind, or of One Thing, and they are the same.” It is the goal of the alchemist to bring spirit and matter into alignment and harmony. Within that relationship rests the secret of creation, and with it our ability to co-create our own reality….
The language used to convey ancient and medieval alchemy was purposely misleading, encoded in terms so difficult to understand that the majority of those who tried to decipher it were either led astray or forced to give up.…
Throughout all the processes of alchemy, it is important to remember the teaching from the Emerald Tablet…. What happens in the spirit world is a reflection of what happens in the physical world.[iii]
Simply put, what happens on this earth can be controlled, manipulated, redirected, or entirely created based on the powerful, metaphysical link between the unseen realm and the enlightened few (magicians, sorcerers, alchemists, master Freemasons, etc.). What happens below on our natural earth, according to this philosophy, can mirror that of the supernatural—and the ambitions of a new society (or New World Order) become tangible via this concentration. Such a “mirror” is openly displayed in the Great Seal. It does, as Hall signifies, “symbolically” relate the “task” to which our country was “dedicated.” He made it clear, as did Nikki Scully, that these symbols and languages are “purposely misleading” to the general public.
It is perhaps no wonder, then, that the nation remains misled and that only students of archaic/esoteric symbolism would be able to decipher the true “peculiar and particular purpose” of the Seal’s design. By allowing the imagery to appear nationalistic in its branding, the truth can be shrouded behind what the general public perceives as patriotic.
When digging through the piles of research available on the Great Seal since its conception in 1776 (approved in 1782), the following implications are offered:
The Obverse Side
The animal chosen to bear the US Coat of Arms (with thirteen stripes) is the American Bald Eagle, supposedly chosen “because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.… The eagle represents freedom. Living as he does on the tops of lofty mountains, amid the solitary grandeur of Nature, he has unlimited freedom, whether with strong pinions he sweeps into the valleys below, or upward into the boundless spaces beyond.”[iv]
However, as stately as this all sounds, it is common knowledge that the earlier sketches were of William Barton’s “phoenix in a nest of flames.” Of this, Manly Hall said, “Its selection would of course have been appropriate.” He went on to say:
Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers such as Clement, Herodotus, and Pliny; in size and shape it resembled the eagle…. The Phoenix, it was said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection.
All symbols have their origin in something tangible, and the Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or re-born [think Horus/Osiris]. Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise [or enlightened] are born again.
The Phoenix symbol is important in another way, as an emblem among nearly all civilized nations of royalty, power, superiority, and immortality. The Phoenix of China is identical in meaning with the Phoenix of Egypt; and the Phoenix of the Greeks is the same as the Thunder Bird of the American Indians.…
It is immediately evident that the bird on the original seal is not an eagle…but the Phoenix…. The beak is of a different shape, the neck is much longer, and the small tuft of hair at the back of the head leaves no doubt as to the artist’s intention.[v]
So, as far as Hall was concerned, and as far as the historical evidence shows, the eagle was never an eagle, but a reincarnating bird held to high importance in Freemasonic mysticism.
However, there is yet another corresponding mythological link to the eagle as the representative phoenix. Several other birds could have been chosen to be the veiled phoenix if the artist was deliberate in shaping their lines, but in the family tree of the Roman pantheon, Jupiter (Zeus to the Greeks) was the father of Apollo, and his sacred animal was the eagle, who almost never leaves his side. When this very eagle was combined with a thunderbolt in its talons in artwork—a common occurrence on Greek and Roman coins—the eagle was to be considered Jupiter, himself, in animal form. Interestingly, in almost every single depiction of this state, the eagle has its wings outstretched in precisely the same stance as the Eagle of the Great Seal, and its head is always facing the same direction. The comparison of the two images is so striking that if one were to approach a person with no understanding of the identities or symbolism of either the Roman/Greek coins or the US Seal (or US history), he or she would understandably think the Roman/Greek coin was an antique coin of America’s ancient past. The unbearded “underworld Jupiter”—also known as Veiove, Vetis, or Vejovis, depending on the region the myth hails from—is depicted with a cluster of arrows in his hand, just like the eagle of the Great Seal.
Thus, there is a distinct allegory existing that the eagle of the US might in fact be a stand-in for the father of the Apollo/Osiris/Horus, who will be reborn into this world through reincarnation/resurrection—and who will arrive to finally place the missing “apex stone” upon the unfinished pyramid (on the reverse side of the Seal) for the New Atlantis.
In the eagle’s left talon are thirteen arrows, said to represent the thirteen original colonies; in its right talon is an olive branch (with thirteen leaves and thirteen olives, again for the thirteen original colonies), said to represent peace. The duality of the arrows and the olive branch signifies, or so we’re told, that our nation desires peace however and whenever possible (which is why the eagle has its head turned to the peaceful side), but we are ready to bravely go to war if necessary to preserve our values.
Above the eagle’s head is a “glory” with thirteen stars, and from its beak is an unraveled scroll with the words E PLURIBUS UNUM—which translates, “out of many, one” (alternatively, “one, out of many”)—made up of thirteen letters. (The English translation, when including the comma, is also comprised of thirteen characters.) The phrase E pluribus unum is said to have strong ties to another by Greek philosopher Heraclitus, whose writings survive only in what is called “the Fragments.” Fragment 10 reads, “The one is made up of all things, and all things issue from the one,” which is strangely similar to the Hermetic “As Above, So Below” maxim adored by Freemasons: “And just as all things have come from this One Thing, through the meditation of One Mind, so do all created things originate from this One Thing.”

MUST WATCH “SABOTEURS” TRAILER WITH MUST-HAVE GIVEAWAY!
And though it has been suggested that the “out of many, one” allusion refers to the comradery of a people coming together (or “becoming one”) through the common interest of love, patriotism, national pride, and so on, a more precise translation of that archetypal union is already given in the Latin unus fiat ex pluribus (literally, “it is based on one of a number of,” i.e., a goal or accomplishment that is based on the joining of a number together as one, united). But that did not equal thirteen letters, nor did it have ties to the “As Above, So Below” proverb. Thus, E pluribus unum was chosen deliberately in place of its more appropriate counterpart. However, whether the final terminology was selected because it fit the “thirteen” theme, or because it reflected the metaphysical and alchemical connotations of the Hermetic Corpus, the public views the “oneness” undertone and, without digging deeper, naturally associates it with patriotic dogmas of unity that have propelled our national “family” since the beginning.
But just as “one nation, under God” and “In God We Trust” are obviously intentionally ambiguous, the question is raised: To what central goal are we united “as one” anyway, and who precisely are the “we” in this equation? Is it all the citizens of America coming together for peace, liberty, and justice? Or is it the initiates of a darker Order coming together for a “peculiar and particular purpose” related to “devil’s footprint” pentagrams and pagan monuments?
Also, might there be more to the numerology surrounding the eagle than just that persistent number thirteen (which we will discuss shortly)? In 1846, 33rd-Degree Freemason and noted author James David Carter wrote in Freemasonry and United States Government:
Among those who helped design the Great Seal of the United States the following are known to have been Masons: Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, William Churchill Houston, and William Barton.… [W]hen an informed Mason examines the Great Seal, here is what he sees:
On the obverse is an eagle whose dexter wing has thirty-two feathers, the number of ordinary degrees in Scottish Rite Freemasonry. The sinister wing has thirty-three feathers, the additional feather corresponding to the Thirty-Third Degree of the same Rite conferred for outstanding Masonic service. The tail feathers number nine, the number of degrees in the Chapter, Council, and Commandery of the York Rite of Freemasonry.… The total number of feathers in the two wings is sixty-five which, by gematria, is the value of the Hebrew phrase yam yawchod (together in unity).…
The glory above the eagle’s head is divided into twenty-four equal parts and reminds the observer of the Mason’s gauge which is also divided into twenty-four equal parts and is emblematic of the service he is obligated to perform. The five-pointed stars remind him of the Masonic Blazing Star and the five points of fellowship.…
The gold, silver, and azure colors represent the sun, moon, and Worshipful Master, the first that rules the day, the second, the night, and the third, the lodge. While silver, connected with the letter Gimel or G and being surrounded on an azure ground by a golden glory, reminds the Mason of the letter G, a most conspicuous furnishing of a proper lodge room. The shield on the eagle’s breast affirms by its colors, valor (red), purity (white), and justice (blue), and reminds the Mason of the cardinal virtues. The value of these colors, by gematria, is 103, the value of the phrase ehben ha-Adam (the stone of Adam) and suggests the perfect ashlar, or squared stone, of Freemasonry. One hundred and three is also the value of the noun bonaim, a Ranbbinical word signifying “builders, Masons.” Thus the national colors spell out, by gematria, the name of the fraternity. The scroll in the eagle’s beak, bearing the words E Pluribus Unum…reminds him also of the unity which has made brothers of many.[vi]
It seems almost naïve to assume that the front side of the Seal is merely patriotic. Freemason handiwork is all over it. The reverse side appears to be even more blatant. Once again, we turn to Hall to point out the obvious: “But if this design on the obverse side of the seal is stamped with the signature of the Order…the design on the reverse is even more definitely related to the old Mysteries.”[vii]
The Reverse Side
Hall describes the reverse side:
Here is represented the great pyramid of Gizah, composed of 13 rows of masonry, showing 72 stones (the importance of this number and its connection to ancient and modern saboteurs and shadow government, deep-state occultists is reviewed elsewhere in this book). The pyramid is without a cap stone, and above its upper platform floats a triangle containing the All-Seeing Eye surrounded by rays of light.[viii]
The “Eye of Providence” floating above the Great Pyramid is an interesting twist. In the Renaissance Era, well before our nation’s founding, it began appearing as a symbol of the Christian Holy Trinity: three equal sides for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with the all-seeing eye of God (the three Persons together as one) at the center, accompanied by “glory rays” issuing from the three sides. Many may find this similarity of the Christian symbol to the Eye of Horus concerning, but when looking into the origins of the Eye of Providence, it’s nearly impossible to locate which religion or culture recorded it first, and it certainly didnot mean the same thing to each culture/religion. Though it doesn’t always appear exactly the same from rendering to rendering, the artwork of the Eye of Providence is prominent in ancient imagery all over the world. In Buddhism, it’s the “Eye of the World”; in Vietnamese Caodism, it’s the “Divine Eye of God”; in Hinduism, it’s the third eye of Shiva and the destroyer of all evil and ignorance; in Middle-Eastern religions, it often appears in the palm of the hand and represents protection (and a comparable symbol appears in Judaism at times as the “Eye [or “Hand”] of Miriam”); and so on.
The designers of the Great Seal knew very well that by the time America was born, this all-seeing eye would be recognized generically as the Eye of Providence, and that Christians arriving to the new land of freedom would associate it to the Eye of the Trinity, so they proceeded with confidence that this “reclothing” would satisfy citizens of the nation for centuries to come. Evidently, their confidence was well placed, because at the time of this writing, the vast majority of Americans either have no idea what they’re looking at on the Seal, or they believe it to be representation of the Trinity (or “Eye of God/Providence,” generically). But if it was merely the Trinity they were pointing to, why would the all-seeing eye of Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit be hovering above the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt, instead of the more obviously appropriate image of America? They just as easily could have placed the Eye over the flag or over a crowd of patriots.
Let’s consider what one of the most famous occultists in world history has said on the matter. I will remind the reader that this Freemason, Aleister Crowley, was known as the “wickedest man in the world.” From his writings, we read of a warped and therefore unholy trinity deriving from Egyptian theology:
Evolution (within human memory) shows three great steps: 1. the worship of the Mother, when the universe was conceived as simple nourishment drawn directly from her; 2. the worship of the Father, when the universe was imagined as catastrophic; 3. the worship of the Child, in which we come to perceive events as a continual growth partaking in its elements of both these methods.
Egyptian theology foresaw this progress of humanity and symbolized it in the triad of Isis, Osiris, [and] Horus.…
[T]he residing officer of the temple (the earth) is Horus, the Crowned and Conquering Child. And again, Egyptology and psychology help us to understand what is implied, and what effect to expect, in the world of thought and action.[ix]
Though Crowley was referring to his timelines of majestic Aeons (time periods revealed to him through an “intelligence entity” known as Aiwass during his search for enlightenment [much like John Dee and his search for enlightenment through communication with “angels”]), and not to the Great Seal symbolism specifically, the Egyptian triad or trinity of Isis/Osiris/Horus was one that had been deeply embedded in the esoteric Mysteries (translation: religion of the Freemasons) that the 33rd-degree Freemason Crowley celebrated and that Hall referred to prior.
Earlier, we used the following quote from Hall’s Secret Teachings of All Ages:
The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.[x]
In the article, “The All-Seeing Eye: Sacred Origins of a Hijacked Symbol” by David Percival of The Conscious Reporter, we see that Hall was not the only one to point out that symbols can be either misused intentionally or combined with others to “hijack” its original purpose in trade for a veiled evil:
Is the all-seeing eye a symbol of divine omniscience or sinister influence? Today it symbolises control and domination by a shadowy elite, but its original use was quite different.…
Today the all-seeing eye is more likely to be seen as an “Illuminati” symbol of control and surveillance by elites who to a large degree run the show on this planet at this time. This is because, over time, dark sinister forces have taken over esoteric symbols that for thousands of years were used to convey positive, helpful, uplifting spiritual messages and principles. The all-seeing eye is a prime example of how spiritual symbols have been hijacked and inverted.[xi]
Again and again, we see the pattern of Freemasons “reclothing,” “distorting,” “warping,” “inverting,” and “hijacking” symbols to make them appear as one thing to the general public but point to that “peculiar and particular purpose” behind the veil, which we will disclose in the next entry…
By default of the inclusion of the word “mason” in the terms “Masonry” and “Freemasonry,” anyone can gather that the societies were formed in the Baconian era with an interest in major-city (or kingdom) architecture. A mason lays stones, so these fraternities are clearly about the mission of building. But if mere architecture was the only goal, what explanation might there be behind all the ancient orders of mysticism? This question might seem like one with an obvious answer to veterans of literature discussing the occultic symbolism of Washington, DC, but it is a question that must be asked for those readers who are only just joining the discussion. What were these secret builders up to, and why were their societies built upon the foundations of occultism?
Before we address these questions, please note that just as some followed the Rosicrucian Order to seek personal growth and not to pray to dark deities or practice alchemy, most men and women in Freemasonic circles today are morally upright people. They either do not know about the plans set by the men who have gone before and above them, or they believe it to all be rumors perpetuated by conspiratorial crazies and find themselves understandably exhausted by the stereotypes. Some of these very personalities have tossed all darker theories out, saying the equivalent to: “If you are not a Freemason, then I think it’s ridiculous that you would talk about what we are really doing. I always hear from conspiracy theorists that I’m ‘just not high enough to know what the higher degrees are up to,’ but the accuser, himself, is not a Freemason, so he knows even less than I do about who we are and what we stand for. For once and for all, we are not doing [fill in the blank].” Because slight variations to this argument continue to appear, I feel it’s time in the reflection to show what a Freemason did say on the subject—one who happens to be one of the most respected, learned, authoritative, and celebrated Freemasons of all time. Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike, in the Masonic handbook, Morals and Dogma, wrote:
Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermetic, and Alchemy, 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.[i]
It would be imprudent and inaccurate to suggest that every Freemason currently has, or has had in the past, a sinister scheme for America’s future on their mind. For those Freemasons who are not yet in the upper levels, it is understandably frustrating that they keep being told by outsiders that they are in the dark about their own society. However, as Pike—one of the greatest spokesmen of Freemasonry in world history—just explained, that is precisely what is going on. All the lower-level Freemasons receive is “false explanations and misinterpretations” until they have proven themselves worthy of keeping secrets. By then, they have already agreed to a horrific end should they default on their promises of confidentiality.
There is simply too much occultic symbolism associated with Freemasonry for researchers to completely let go of the idea that both early and modern upper rungs of the society intend only to simulate harmless or entertaining social rituals. It remains a blatant and open fact that the architecture of our Capitol was built with unsettling imagery in its very stones—the nature of which is always pagan…and frequently satanic.
It is well known that [John] Dee was a sorcerer who summoned demonic spirits to obtain secret knowledge; a practice used by Rosicrucians (of whom Dee was the chief in England) for centuries. The root word for “demon” means “a knowing one.” The Rosicrucians desired to know secrets of science (i.e., knowledge) and consulted demons to get information. [Sir Francis] Bacon also made contact with demonic spirits, including the goddess Pallas Athena, whom he claimed was his muse or inspiration. In time, Dee handed off the leadership of the Rosicrucian Society to Bacon, who would enfold the secrets of Rosicrucianism into the system of Freemasonry.
Little wonder that Sir Francis Bacon would become the father of the modern scientific method, and that men like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson would follow his example in their scientific endeavors. Franklin and Jefferson are both claimed by modern Rosicrucians as being of their order.
Like the Gnostics, the Rosicrucians craved knowledge; it was this desire that led them to worship Lucifer. The secret orders regard Lucifer as the “angel of light” who, in the form of a serpent, bid mankind to partake of the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil” so that their eyes would be open and they could become as gods. This is the inner doctrine of Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, and all the secret orders—and always has been. In the nineteenth century, when Masons like Pike and Mackey (along with leading occultists such as Eliphas Levi and Madame H. P. Blavatsky) [of whom we will later address] described this doctrine in their writings, they were only admitting in print what had been secretly known for centuries. The difference was that with the revolutionary movements, freedom of religion allowed them to publish such things without fear of persecution.[ii]
This is an interesting trail of thought, for sure. However, Pinto did not limit his reflection of American Masonic origins to Dee and Bacon. He goes on to address the longstanding “secrets in stone” exercises put in place by earlier Masons in the interest of introducing syncretized symbolism in sacred places:
Centuries before all this, in 1492, Rosslyn Chapel was built by Scottish Freemasons. To this day, the chapel is considered a puzzle because it is filled with carvings and icons of [both] Christian and Pagan religions. Why? The reason is because Freemasons have always had the inner doctrine of amalgamating religious beliefs. Much of this can be traced back to the Knights Templar, who are said to have fled to Scotland when they were persecuted in Europe (circa 1307).… Furthermore, in the wake of the Scottish Jacobite rebellions of the early 1700s, many Scottish Masons and Rosicrucians fled to America, bringing their occult doctrines with them. One of their power centers was the Fredericksburg Lodge No. 4, whose members included George Washington, James Monroe, and eight of the Revolutionary War generals.[iii]
Manly P. Hall, known as “Masonry’s greatest philosopher” to his celebrators, once wrote a book called The Secret Destiny of America. Even the book’s title holds an ominous insinuation. (That our country would have been born with a “secret destiny” is a concept we will visit at length throughout this work.) Hall confirms Pinto’s assertion in his book with the following words regarding how early Freemasons “reclothed” their ideologies in “Christian phraseology” in order to flatter and deceive a land whose residents held Christian values dear prior to the Revolution:
The rise of the Christian Church broke up the intellectual pattern of the classical pagan world. By persecution of this pattern’s ideologies it drove the secret societies into greater secrecy; the pagan intellectuals then reclothed their original ideas in a garment of Christian phraseology, but bestowed the keys of the symbolism only upon those duly initiated and bound to secrecy by their vows.…
They signed each stone with the secret symbols of their cult, and into the intricate carvings of church and chapel they worked the old pagan figures and designs. Many guilds sprang up, binding skilled craftsmen in confraternities of arts and crafts and trades. Architecture remained the chosen instrument for the perpetuation of the Great Design….
All the sciences contained brilliant far-seeing men who equally desired to contribute their part to the philosophic empire of the future. Secret societies were formed in their own professions, using the emblems established in their arts to conceal their social aspirations. Thus did the Alchemists come into being [including such men as Dee and Bacon], the mystic chemists seeking the elixir of life, the wise man’s stone [of which Dee spent his entire life devotedly seeking], the universal medicine, and the agent for the transmutation of metals.[iv]
So what began as a subtle syncretism of Christian symbolism alongside pagan symbolism became an outright replacement of pagan symbols over sacred Christian images by the time our capital was built. Pinto says as much: “The practice of carving their doctrines in stone continued in the new world with the building of Washington, DC. This is why one will find in our nation’s capital countless images of gods and goddesses, along with zodiacs, the Washington Monument Obelisk (which Time Magazine depicts Trump fracturing in its recent Hat Tip cover to occult insiders), reflecting pools, and a whole cacophony of pagan imagery. There are no monuments to Jesus Christ, the apostles, or anything having to do with the Christian faith.”[v]
Who were the design engineers and builders of our nation’s capital? That would be those men we outlined at the beginning of this study: the presidents, politicians, founding fathers, government associates, aristocratic elitists, and finally, those who “appreciated” the morality of Christ while flirting with “Hellfire Club” debauchery on the weekends. The architecture of our country is entirely pagan. Are we supposed to surmise that this was done by accident? That the builders who dedicated each stone of Washington, DC, to pagan gods made Jesus Christ the victim of unintentional oversight? That they intended to glorify the Man behind the morality they “appreciated,” but they simply got busy and forgot? Or, can we prize common-sense logic well enough to conclude that our founding fathers and prominent American leaders deliberately and calculatedly dedicated our land to pagan gods for an underlying (and terrifying) purpose?
If the symbols embedded in our capital are allowed to speak for themselves, I believe we have a strong case for precisely that brand of conclusion. All the images are displayed out in the open for any visitor to view in person. The intent of the society’s masterminds may be shrouded under layers of secrecy, but their artwork is blatantly public.
So, if the society does, in fact, have an agenda related to the dark etchings and monuments on our land, how have our citizens remained so unaware if the proof of it is not even remotely hidden?
The answer to that question may in part be due to the value Freemasons place on keeping a secret.
The Legend of Hiram Abiff / Vows of Silence
The tale of Hiram Abiff (also known as “the Widow’s Son” and oftentimes recognized as King Hiram I of Tyre or Huram Abi, son of a widow from the tribe of Naphtali), is ritually reenacted amidst the brethren each time a Freemason reaches the Master level (or 3rd Degree). The story involves several variations throughout history, but a popular regaling of the central elements (as known to the general public) is as follows:
Around a thousand years before Christ’s birth, King Solomon appointed a master architect to oversee the building of the sacred Jerusalem Temple—the housing site, as designed by God directly, of the Ten Commandments tablets. This architect was named Hiram Abiff.
Solomon shared God’s divine and heavenly building design with Abiff, but swore him to secrecy. Abiff agreed to keep the design a secret at all costs, including at the threat of death.
Three of Abiff’s apprentice workers grew jealous of his position as master mason. They sought to gain access to the riddles of deific Masonry—believing that this would unlock secret knowledge of the universe (or in some variations “give them magical powers,” “make them the greatest masons,” etc.)—by repeatedly asking Abiff for the restricted access code. Abiff did not divulge the information, so a plan was set in motion to ambush him at the next opportunity. The three apprentices studied Abiff’s schedule patterns and set the ambush plan in motion for midday, as each day at noon, Abiff walked away from the worksite to pray. (The popular version says he frequented the Holy of Holies in the depths of the Temple at this time.)
Just after they were in position—one apprentice stationed at each of Abiff’s three exits—Abiff headed to the eastern door to leave. The first apprentice met him there and demanded the code. Abiff informed him that he would only be given the code after the Temple was completed and the apprentice had proved himself worthy of the secrets. Angered, the apprentice struck Abiff in the throat.
Abiff fled, stumbling to the southern door, where he was met by the second apprentice demanding the same answer. Abiff refused again and was dealt a blow to the chest.
Abiff fled once more to the western door, where the third apprentice repeated the demand. After a third refusal, he was finally killed with a strike to the forehead. Just before death, he is said to have cried out, “Who will help the widow’s son?” (now rumored to be the Masonic cry for help from fellow brethren in the fraternity). His blood was shed entirely within the Temple walls.
Abiff’s body was taken outside and buried, where it was later discovered by Solomon and his men nearby an acacia tree. (Note the “acacia tree” for later.)
This is where the story has nearly uncountable variations of its ending, each involving many different aspects of burial, murder scandals with Solomon’s name at the center, items of interest found at the exhumation of the body, the theory that the secrets of the building plans died with Abiff, etc.
Modern historians (and some Freemasons) suggest that the legend of Hiram Abiff originated the term “free mason”: a mason who has a free mind, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom to travel the world to his heart’s desire, and so on—and that “free masons” always have three assailants (like the apprentices in the story): ignorance (which, as stated prior, was also the greatest enemy of Sir Bacon’s goddess Pallas Athena), fanaticism, and tyranny. Other theories have surfaced proposing that the “free mason” was simply a mason who didn’t belong to, or allow himself to be mandated by, a mason guild, or that the term distinguishes the “free masons” from the “cowans” (Scotland’s rough, unhewn stone builders). (Also worthy of note: Today’s Masonic lodges are built based on the biblical description of King Solomon’s temple as a result of the legend.)
What remains for today’s Masonic fraternities, however, is the heroism laced into the legend of Abiff. So dedicated was he to the concealment of the Masonic secrets that he willingly died protecting them—and his death was mercilessly violent. The greatest hero of any brethren, or so the story signifies, is one who can keep the knowledge of the secret mysteries of the builders and brethren restricted, even in the face of bloody death. This legendary “access code” (sometimes referred to as “password,” “code word,” “secret code,” or “keyword”) is said to be given to a Master Mason as a sign of accomplishment or recognition for their service to the society only after they have proved themselves a worthy Apprentice and Craftsman (the first two levels of Freemasonry). The secret code of the Master Mason is then bestowed upon them following the ritual of Hiram Abiff.
The initiation rite of the Master Mason has been revealed numerous times by former Freemasons. The rite varies slightly from testimony to testimony, but key essentials of the ritual remain solid. To begin, the ritual is always held confidentially in the presence of the brethren. The candidate swears an oath of secrecy, vowing never to expose anything that happens within those walls to another human being outside of them. They are made to agree that, should they default on this promise, they risk being killed in horrific and/or painful ways.
It’s a secret society. It’s always been a secret society. And to reveal anything about these secret societies ensures your death. And people have tried to expose Masonry, even to this very day, [they] risk their lives in doing it.… When you actually go into Masonry in the first three degrees, you’ll promise that if you ever reveal any of the secrets of Masonry in the first degree, you’ll have your tongue cut out and you’ll be buried in the sands of the sea up to the level of your neck [when the waters reach] low tide. At the second degree…they cut out your heart, and at the third degree, they’re going to cut out your entrails and burn them.[vi]
Sounds sensational, no? But one does not have to look far to see that murder (including recent mysterious deaths connected to WikiLeaks?) are well associated with Freemason SABOTEURS, as we will uncover in the next entry.
ALREADY HAILED AS “BY FAR DR. THOMAS HORN’S MOST IMPORTANT WORK… EVER!”
COMING IN ONE WEEK!

Deism had become a trendy belief system on our land circa 1725, grew to dominance for many decades, and then finally declined in the early 1800s. Benjamin Franklin was born in 1706, so before his twentieth birthday, Deism would have been the new, fashionable, and intellectual faith for up-and-coming politicians. George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Paine were born in the 1730s, followed by Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and James Madison in the ’40s and ’50s. These men established their education under the influence of major universities and Deist professors in preparation for US leadership; Washington was the exception, as his education was primarily through observation of aristocratic and wealthy dealings among the Virginia high class—most of which were openly Deist. Much documentation suggests that these men were all Deists as a result of cultural exposure during the Age of Reason (the Enlightenment era), but there are several choice documents and letters that suggest something far more bizarre than mere Deism was bubbling underneath the polished exterior for at least some of these men.
Thomas Paine is known for his heavy influence in the American Revolution. His tract Common Sense, according to historians, proved to inspire the writing of the Declaration of Independence. His Crisis pamphlets were read aloud during the wartime era by George Washington to the troops. The memory of this man’s role in our country’s freedom, as stated on his very gravestone, reads: “On this site was buried Thomas Paine, 1737–1809, Author of Common Sense, the pamphlet that stirred American colonies to independence. John Adams said: ‘Without the pen of Paine, the sword of Washington would have been wielded in vain,’ and ‘History is to ascribe the American Revolution to Thomas Paine.’” Paine’s role as a founding father may be more overlooked than some, but it is certainly solid. So, was he a Christian?
Consider what he wrote in his The Age of Reason; Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology:
I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.…
Each of those churches show certain books, which they call revelation, or the word of God. The Jews say, that their word of God was given by God to Moses, face to face; the Christians say, that their word of God came by divine inspiration: and the Turks say, that their word of God (the Koran) was brought by an angel from Heaven. Each of those churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all.…
When Moses told the children of Israel that he received the two tables of the commandments from the hands of God, they were not obliged to believe him, because they had no other authority for it than his telling them so; and I have no other authority for it than some historian telling me so. The commandments carry no internal evidence of divinity with them; they contain some good moral precepts, such as any man qualified to be a lawgiver, or a legislator, could produce himself, without having recourse to supernatural intervention.[i]
This view is similar to those shared by others of the founding fathers. If one were to research these men at length, they would find that they all were quoted as having appreciated the morality upheld within Christianity. But men like Paine no more belonged to the Body of Christ in his appreciativeness toward it than a Christian would be a Buddhist based on his or her appreciation of philosophy. Paine went on to address quite openly the faults he found in such concepts as the virgin birth of Christ, His resurrection, and His ascension, accepting only the probability of His death on the cross as a finite human man who lived among the Jews at one point in history. His open refutation of Christianity’s core doctrines goes much deeper still than this. Unabashedly, he writes that the Old Testament itself, and all the content therein, is “scarcely anything but a history of the grossest vices and a collection of the most paltry and contemptible tales.”[ii] Moving on to his personal grievances of the New Testament, Paine even postulates that the Holy Spirit’s impregnation of Mary was equivalent to any other scandalous, premarital act between a male suitor and a betrothed woman when he says, “What is it the Testament teaches us?—to believe that the Almighty committed debauchery with a woman engaged to be married, and the belief of this debauchery is called faith.”[iii] His summary of this “blasphemously obscene” belief system is as follows:
It is not the existence, or non-existence, of the persons [Jesus, Mary, and Joseph] that I trouble myself about; it is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene. It gives an account of a young woman engaged to be married, and while under this engagement she is, to speak plain language, debauched by a ghost, under the impious pretence (Luke, chap. i., ver. 35), that “the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.” Notwithstanding which, Joseph afterward marries her, cohabits with her as his wife, and in his turn rivals the ghost. This is putting the story into intelligible language, and when told in this manner, there is not a priest but must be ashamed to own it.[iv]
His final sentence here, in modern English, can be reworded: “Any priest or pastor willing to preach the heresy of Jesus Christ as the Son of God should be ashamed of himself.”
Needless to say, Thomas Paine—the forefather to whom the victory of the American Revolution has been repeatedly bestowed upon—was not a Christian. He was a Deist, and a radical one. According to the textbook, The Faiths of the Founding Fathers, “Thomas Paine, [a member of the Deism] movement’s radical wing viewed Christianity as a barrier to moral improvement and to social justice.”[v]
Well-known founding father and celebrated signer of the Declaration, Thomas Jefferson, likewise had limited beliefs in Jesus Christ and His purpose upon the earth. Revelation 22:19 says, “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Jefferson was not concerned about this severe threat or its eternal implications when he used a razor blade to maim the Holy Bible, cutting choice teachings from the four Gospels and gluing them into a more so-called enlightened document popularly known as the “Jefferson Bible” (formally known as The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth). Jefferson’s cuts removed all of Christ’s miracles, all of His divinity as the Son, and most mention of the supernatural. The purpose of this, he says, was to purify Christ’s role and teachings from what the “priests” had corrupted throughout time. In a letter written to John Adams in 1813, Jefferson explained:
In extracting the pure principles which he [Christ] taught, we should have to strip off the artificial vestments in which they have been muffled by priests, who have travestied them into various forms, as instruments of riches and power to themselves. We must dismiss the Platonists and Plotinists, the Stagyrites and Gamalielites, the Eclectics, the Gnostics and Scholastics, their essences and emanations, their logos and demiurges, aeons and daemons, male and female, with a long train of etc., etc., etc., or, shall I say at once, of nonsense. We must reduce our volume to the simple evangelists, select, even from them, the very words only of Jesus, paring off the amphibologisms into which they have been led, by forgetting often, or not understanding, what had fallen from him, by giving their own misconceptions as his dicta, and expressing unintelligibly for others what they had not understood themselves. There will be found remaining the most sublime and benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man. I have performed this operation for my own use, by cutting verse by verse out of the printed book, and arranging the matter which is evidently his, and which is as easily distinguishable as diamonds in a dunghill. The result is an 8vo [Latin octavo—meaning one eighth the length of the original printed format] of forty-six pages, of pure and unsophisticated doctrines.[vi]
But Jefferson shredded the Bible apart to create this “improved” gospel—one spared of all the “dunghills” such as Christ’s virgin birth and supernatural worth—without even the slightest inkling of fear that the “book of life” promise in Revelation would apply to his name. This is due to the fact that Jefferson didn’t even begin to respect the book of Revelation to begin with, as he said to Alexander Smyth in a letter dated January 17, 1825: “It is between fifty and sixty years since I read it [the Book of Revelation] and I then considered it as merely the ravings of a maniac, no more worthy nor capable of explanation than the incoherences of our own nightly dreams.”[vii] This sentiment was penned a short number of years after he stated in his letter to William Short in 1819:
But the greatest of all the Reformers of the depraved religion of his own country, was Jesus of Nazareth. Abstracting what is really his from the rubbish in which it is buried, easily distinguished by it’s lustre from the dross of his biographers, and as separable from that as the diamond from the dung hill, we have the outlines of a system of the most sublime morality which has ever fallen from the lips of man: outlines which it is lamentable he did not live to fill up.[viii]
Similar to his cutting apart of the New Testament, Jefferson believed that only parts of the Old Testament were of any value whatsoever. In a letter to Adams on January 24, 1814, he poses a question of the Ten Commandments’ origin, saying that even though legend postulates they were written with the finger of God, we only have Moses’ testimony to believe such a thing, and that we all have equal rights to doubt their authenticity. So, like Paine, Jefferson appreciated the morality as taught by a finite and human Jesus, but there exists plenty of evidence that Jefferson was no more a Christian man than any other Deist philosopher.
Another commonly known Deist, Benjamin Franklin, was a great supporter of freedom from England. It was through his career in printing early on that the writings of Thomas Paine found their way into the troops during war time and fed their hunger for a life outside England’s dictatorial rule. But in addition to the wonderful deeds he carried out in the interest of our land of liberty and justice, Franklin was heavily involved in secret societies throughout our home region as well as France and England. In the scholarly journal article, “The Masonic Chronology of Benjamin Franklin,” we read that “the Masonic career of Benjamin Franklin extends over a period of almost sixty years, during which time he was accorded the highest Masonic honors at home and abroad.”[ix]
Philadelphia’s St. John’s Masonic Lodge (the first Masonic building in America where Franklin penned the society’s bylaws) awarded him with the title of Master Freemason during the same era he was elected Vénérable Maître W. M. (English “Worshipful Master”) at the Loge des IX Soeurs de Paris (“Nine Sisters Lodge of Paris”; it was at this location he assisted in the initiation of famous French enlightenment writer François-Marie Arouet—a.k.a. “Voltaire”—in 1778 just months before Franklin officiated Voltaire’s Masonic funeral amidst the brethren the same year). In the summer of 1734, he printed and published his Mason Book, which was the very first Masonic book printed in our country—and this act was carried out only a month after he had achieved the rank of “Grand Master of Pennsylvania.”[x] (Later in 1749, he was appointed the “Provincial Grand Master of Pennsylvania by Thomas Oxnard of Boston.”[xi]) During his American administration, the State House (Independence Hall) was built, and he and the brethren of St. John’s Lodge laid the cornerstone.[xii] According to the recorded minutes in the proceedings of the Grand Masonic Lodge of the Crown & Anchor building of London in 1760, Franklin was listed as “Provincial Grand Master.”[xiii] His death in 1790 is documented as passing “to the Grand Lodge beyond,” and his tombstone in Christ Church Yard of Pennsylvania would be a sacred gathering site for future Masonic services held in his honor.[xiv]
Not only was Franklin a founding father of our country, he was a founding father of our country’s Freemasonry roots. It’s nearly unthinkable that we would have established such fervor for Freemasonry on our soil without him.
Yet, Franklin’s personal dirty laundry list goes deep. In order to understand just how deep, we have to visit some facts about the “Hellfire Club” of Sir Francis Dashwood. (It was men like Dashwood, along with their anything-goes lifestyles resulting in extreme corruption of character and terrible decision-making, who heralded from the enlightenment Age of Reason to which these founding fathers belonged.)
Dashwood was the founder of the “Order of the Friars of St. Francis of Wycombe,” later appropriately coined the Hellfire Club. Several full-length films have been made on this subject. Membership to Dashwood’s Hellfire Club (and many others like it during this time) was made up of some of the most prominent names in the British—and soon American—government, as well as jovial buddies from the upper-crust society. The club’s first meeting was conducted on Walpurgisnacht (German “Walpurgis Night,” so named after the venerated eighth-century abbess St. Walpurga), April 30, 1752. The alternate and popularly used title Hexennacht literally translates “Witch’s Night.” The Germanic origins trace to the night when witches gather on the Brocken, the pinnacle of the Harz Mountains in Northern Germany, to await the heralding springtime (though this evening is observed in several countries throughout the world not limited to Germany). The scene of witches and warlocks interacting with the devil on the Brocken for his favor has been revered over and over again through the play adaptation of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Faust!—and from many reports historically, those scenes are not entirely a work of fiction. Many documents attest to the wicked revelries that occur on Walpurgisnacht, including, but not limited to, fantastic orgies and demonic human or animal sacrifices to Satan as trade for his power and blessing.
Those who wish to fend off or scare away the witches partake in many protection rituals and customs (varying from country to country, but frequently involving bonfires in some way or other). Some tales involve a kind of unholy Passover event whereupon all stables and barns must be locked up with crosses on the doorposts alongside tacked sprigs of juniper and elder (sacred to pagan deities), and holy bells are placed around the necks of cows, lest the parading witches of Brocken capture the livestock and deliver them to their own horrific devices. Over the years, much like Halloween in the States, most of the original rituals and customs have been replaced with modern parties and fun bonfires where people by the score gather to drink beer, socialize, and eat fattening treats. But from one culture to another, today, the evening of Walpurgisnacht is an invitation for rebel youth to vandalize neighbors’ property and wreak havoc throughout the area with a tongue-in-cheek blame placed on those wily Brocken witches of yesteryear.
In 1752, it was no coincidence that Sir Francis Dashwood chose to launch his Hellfire Club on a date well known for sexual orgies, fiery sacrifices, and deals with the devil. Much like some of the acts carried out by revelers who observe Walpurgisnacht, Dashwood organized his club to partake in debauchery fitting the motto in stained glass above the grand entrance of one of his later meeting sites—Fais ce que tu voudras (“Do what you will” or “Do what thou wilt”)—essentially encouraging all members to drink deeply from the cup of wantonness and shameless iniquity for the duration of their gathering. (This motto was interestingly adopted later as a lifestyle mantra by Aleister Crowley, a Rosicrucian and 33rd-Degree Freemason, also popularly known as “the wickedest man in the world.”)
Once the meetings were established in the Medmenham Abbey, décor was raised within depicting phallic artwork and structures, as well as mythological imagery. Caves underground at the site were also decorated accordingly. These caves are known as the “Hellfire Caves,” and they still exist to this day. Although merriment was conducted in the main hall, when the men wished to indulge in gaieties so immoral that it would have jeopardized their standing as upright politicians and “Christian” aristocrats, the parties were taken underground. Women prostitutes dressed as nuns would attend and offer their “holy services” to the present “monks,” and the orgies would begin.
Not limited to mere orgies and drunkenness were these meetings, however. Blatant blasphemy and mock religious rituals for the appeasement of pagan deities was the norm. (More than one of the movies made about this club of men involves mock human sacrifices, one of which in 1961 depicted the act taking place under a Baphomet symbol.) It is said that Dashwood used a sacred Eucharist cup to pour anointings upon pagan altars and deity effigies. Among the long list of gods who were given unspeakably sickening “offerings” and sacrifices (more than merely the Eucharist-cup example just given, but far too vile to give in full detail here) were Dionysus, Venus, Bacchus, Priapus, Daphne, and Flora. There are rumors in heavy circulation that Black Masses and satanic rituals took place regularly. Evidence that the “monks” were summoning the devil is not hard to find…
A story is told of an evening wherein English journalist and politician John Wilkes fastened a pull-string through a loop connected to a trunk with a monkey (dressed as a devil or demon) trapped inside. He waited for the right moment to pull the string and release the animal with the other members of the brotherhood present as a practical joke. It went as well as he could have hoped, as the primate instantly flew out of his prison and clung to John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, another of the brethren. But it is Lord Sandwich’s response to the sudden appearance of the “devil”—a response the brethren thought was hilarious but which we find disturbingly revealing of the club’s underlying nature—that is relevant to our reflection here:
At the chosen moment, Wilkes pulled the cord and out popped the wretched animal which leapt on to the shoulders of Lord Sandwich, who, feeling the shock and seeing the animal grinning horribly at him concluded that the Devil had obeyed his summons in good earnest and had come to carry him bodily away. The harder he tried to shake off the poor creature the tighter it clung, whilst Sandwich cried out: “Spare me gracious Devil: spare a wretch who never was sincerely your servant. I sinned only from vanity of being in the fashion; thou knowest I never have been half so wicked as I pretended: never have been able to commit the thousandth part of the vices which I have boasted of…leave me therefore and go to those who are more truly devoted to your service.”[xv]
According to this oh-so-comical narrative, it wasn’t at all uncommon that these “monks” of the Hellfire brethren would get together and “summon the devil”—or at least, as Lord Sandwich admitted, “boast” about doing so. What is perhaps more enlightening is the fact that Sandwich, when he believed he had finally succeeded in summoning the devil who was now appearing for his dues, pleaded with the perceived apparition that he be spared, as he wasn’t as “truly devoted” to Satan as the rest of the Hellfire Club members. If, by his own admission, Sandwich was not as devoted as the others despite his direct summoning of the devil and the other “vices” he spoke of, what in the world were these other men doing that could possibly be so much worse as to prove their “true devotion”? It leaves much darkness to the imagination…
Later, when the club was dying off, it was documented that John Tucker—Hellfire Club “monk” and Member of Parliament for Weymouth, Massachusetts—was shocked to see the club’s disassembling. The description of this moment is also telling: “‘I was last Sunday at Medmenham and to my amazement found the Chapter Room stripped naked.’ Evidently, Sir Francis had decided that the time had come to remove all traces of incriminating evidence of the Club’s existence, including even the prints of the heads of kings and nuns and the pegs for the clothes with the brothers’ names above.”[xvi]
Such hiding of “incriminating evidence” was the way of the brethren from the beginning, as all nefarious secret societies charge its members with vows of the utmost secrecy, and this one was no different. The fact, then, that Benjamin Franklin’s visits to this club and participation in its revelries remains an ongoing rumor with much supporting proof is unsettling. Many historians, books, and articles, as well as exposés produced by such sources as the History Channel specials on the secret societies of the founding fathers, go as far as calling him an official “member,” whereas countless others simply say that he was a frequenter of the monks’ establishment and would have—at the very least—been an eyewitness to the acts carried out in the club. What we know for certain, however, is that he was there, on the grounds of the Hellfire Club, on several occasions, during the debauchery. A letter to a friend back home in Philadelphia makes this fact irrefutable. Dashwood held the office of Joint Postmasters General in Great Britain from 1766 to 1781, the year of his death. Franklin was Deputy Postmaster General in America during this revolutionary period, so Dashwood was Franklin’s superior officer. It is a historic fact that their working together made the two men close friends, and Franklin was often invited for visits to Dashwood’s estate in West Wycombe.
Since the secretary of the Hell-Fire Club burned the club’s records the day before [Dashwood’s] death, there is no absolute proof that Franklin (or anyone else for that matter) was a member [outside of admission by documented correspondence that is]. But we do know that he made constant visits to West Wycombe and in July 1772 made a special trip from London to spend sixteen days with Sir Francis. We also know that there was a meeting of the club during this period and there seems to be no reason why Franklin should have gone to Wycombe at this special time unless he was a member. Only club members were allowed at Wycombe during meetings. Franklin did go into the caves, and only club members (except for servants and the “nuns”) were allowed past the iron gate. Franklin wrote to a friend in Philadelphia: “The exquisite sense of classical design, charmingly reproduced by the Lord le Despencer [Dashwood] at West Wycombe, whimsical and puzzling as it may sometimes be in its imagery, is as evident below the earth as above it.” This [“below the earth” reference] can refer only to the [Hellfire Club] caves.[xvii]
And if Franklin were present, as the evidence is clear he was, common sense begs the questions: Would a secret society as despicably wicked as the Hellfire Club allow such a renowned figure into their midst if his only purpose there was to observe? Would that not be a threat to them if such a noteworthy man as Benjamin Franklin was calmly sitting nearby, sipping wine and taking mental notes about their orgies, pagan offerings, and mock human sacrifices? By the very nature of his refusal to participate, he would have been making a statement that he found their behaviors a moral contradiction to their office, would he not? Therefore, through the most rudimentary of kindergarten logic, wouldn’t he be a tattle-tale risk?
One does not have to be an expert in the field of research regarding secret societies to know that bystanders (translation: eyewitnesses) would not be allowed on the premises during such horrific events unless they, too, had been initiated into the society and held full participation in its ceremonies. All signs point to the facts that Franklin was a member of the Hellfire Club (as hundreds of sources convincingly portray) and that he would have taken part in their rituals, including mock sacrifices.
That makes this next bit about him even more unscrupulous.
In early 1998, about two hundred years after Franklin’s death, conservation work began on 36 Craven Street in London at the “Benjamin Franklin House” where he lived off and on between 1757 and 1775. When Jim Field of the renovation crew discovered the first of a collection of more than 1,200 animal and human bones in the basement under the floor of the Seminar Room (including enough skeletons for four whole adults and six whole children, but accumulatively, the bones were from at least fifteen people), an abrupt halt was brought to the conservation plans until a brief investigation could bring answers as to the nature of their concealment. Sunday Times ran the story, and an excerpt from this article states: “Initial estimates are that the bones are about two hundred years old [dating them to approximately the last decade of Franklin’s life] and were buried at the time Franklin was living in the house, which was his home from 1757 to 1762 and from 1764 to 1775. Most of the bones show signs of having been dissected, sawn or cut. One skull has been drilled with several holes.”[xviii] After careful analysis and much documentation, it has been proven indisputably that the bones were buried while Franklin was living there.
The most popular explanation for the discovery by those who wish to exonerate Franklin from any dubious activity is the idea that the bones were obtained for study by Dr. William Hewson—a pioneer of hematology (the study of blood and blood disease)—who ran an anatomy school within Franklin’s home. Hewson, the story goes, conducted experiments on human cadavers to provide the medical community with beneficial research. It wasn’t until 1832 that such experimentation for the betterment of all mankind was made legal due to resistance from religious groups, so Hewson had to hide all traces of his work. The likeliest of all assumptions then, if this version of the story is true, is that Hewson obtained the cadavers from “the resurrectionists” body snatchers who provided fresh bodies in the middle of night via the Thames River and then disposed of them via burial in Franklin’s basement.
However, some of the bones were from animals, and many of the bones had been blackened by fire. If Hewson’s practice centered on animals occasionally, which is not unheard of for anatomical/medical experimentation, that part could be explained. What cannot be explained is why these bones would have been charred, as if by fiery sacrifice.
Understandably, between the close association of Franklin with the Hellfire Club and the burned bones buried beneath his house, many have come forward with theories that Franklin was far more involved with satanic rituals than he wanted the world to know about. Some postulate that the bodies arrived dead and were thereafter dissected and offered ceremoniously to pagan deities in that classic Dashwood flair; others suggest an even more frightening concept that Franklin was America’s first serial killer who followed through with real human sacrifices and thereafter had the bodies of his victims transported to Dr. Hewson so that if the evidence were ever found, Franklin would be able to skirt the blame on the noble cause of future medical ingenuity. Had Franklin’s reputation never initially been linked with visitations to the Hellfire Club and the darker sects openly connected to Freemasonry, these theories would sound conspiratorial and juvenile. Once the trail of questionable details is linked, however, such a notion is much less far-fetched.
But whatever the reason—anatomy school, human sacrifice, or posthumous offerings to the gods—at the very least, we know Franklin was not the “Christian founding father” he has so many times been remembered to be, and he said as much in a letter to Yale University’s president, Ezra Stiles:
As to Jesus of Nazareth, my Opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the System of Morals and his Religion, as he left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see; but I apprehend it has received various corrupt changes, and I have, with most of the present Dissenters in England, some Doubts as to his divinity.[xix]
Once again, we have a fellow “appreciator” of Jesus of Nazareth and the morals He spoke of, but Franklin was not by any stretch of the imagination a Christian man.
Franklin’s close associate John Adams gave a similar response when asked about his convictions of the Holy Bible and its central character in a letter to Thomas Jefferson dated September 3, 1816:
I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved—the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced![xx]
To refer to the Gospels and the cross upon which Christ hung for the covering of humanity’s sins as an “engine of grief” is all the evidence we need from John Adams to move right along to the next on the list, knowing that Adams, too, was no Christian.
Of course, the name many have been waiting for is the most celebrated founding father in US history: George Washington. Washington, like the others, appreciated the morality that Christ preached, but he, too, was a Deist—and a Freemason of the highest rank as of August 4, 1753, at the Masonic Lodge No. 4 in Fredericksburg, Virginia. We need not look far to find convincing proof that Washington’s associates already knew he was not a Christian in the traditional sense, as the country continues to claim.
Bishop James White, personal pastor to Washington for more than two decades, gave testimony that although our first president attended church regularly for religious cameos, Washington never gave anyone any reason to believe it was out of sincere conviction any more than it would have been to satisfy the expectations of his country’s Christian citizens. White said, “I do not believe that any degree of recollection will bring to my mind any fact which would prove General Washington to have been a believer in the Christian revelation.”[xxi] White’s assistant, Reverend James Abercrombie, held the same opinion, and when questioned, his plain response was, “Sir, Washington was a Deist.”[xxii]
Thomas Jefferson, in his journal entry on February 1, 1800, recalled a day when Washington had cleverly outmaneuvered a group of persistent clergymen who asked Washington outright whether he was going to proclaim or deny the Christian faith during his farewell address as president. Their inquiry came as a result of Washington’s continually avoiding the issue while in office. They had it in mind to put him on the spot and force an answer for the clarification of the American people. Jefferson writes:
[T]he old fox was too cunning for them. He answered every article in their address particularly except that, which he passed over without notice.… I know that Gouverneur Morris, who pretended to be in his secrets and believed himself to be so, has often told me that General Washington believed no more in the system [Christianity] than he did.[xxiii]
At least another fifty equivalent examples could be given that strengthen the existent doubts of Washington’s Christianity. Although it has been documented scores of times that he found the moral fibers of Christianity a benefit to mankind (are we all seeing the pattern here?), and he said so often, no personal writings or quote of his can irrefutably prove that he was a Christian. Many documents and quotes can be found that prove at least his personal clergy believed he was not, and only acted as if he was so the question of his faith would not become a stumbling block to his reputation and legacy as first president of this “Christian” nation.
With these names addressed, one could continue to expound upon this list and include hundreds of others whose roles in the early-development phases of our country were crucial. Sadly, a heavy number of these names would also fall into the category of Freemason or Deist, and often simultaneously. Suffice it to say that our government was not, as so many still think, founded by devout followers of Christ. Some might say, and for good reason, that it was the opposite.
This opinion could easily be born out of a deeper understanding of Masonic and Freemasonic roots, whose shocking plans we’ll continue to expose in the next entry…
ALREADY HAILED AS “BY FAR DR. THOMAS HORN’S MOST IMPORTANT WORK… EVER!
One of Netflix’s most popular political drama’s is a series called House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood, a Democrat from South Carolina’s 5th congressional district and House Majority Whip who later becomes president. Actress Robin Wright stars as his wife, Claire Underwood, who is as ruthless and pragmatic as her cutthroat and manipulative husband.
Season 5 of the program raised a lot of eyebrows in 2017 when it depicted where Underwood derives some of his power and influence. Episode 8 opened in what is obviously the Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, California, where in mid-July of each year, a three-weekend encampment hosts some of the world’s most prominent men—from US presidents and politicians, to entertainment figures and notable businessmen, to power brokers and heads of state from other countries outside the US.
As the camera zooms in on the wooded area, a giant, owl-like figure with burning red eyes stands in the background as red-hooded figures circle before it chanting “Set us free,” followed by the cloaked men sacrificing a human effigy on an altar.
As happens in House of Cards on somewhat of a regular basis, Mr. Underwood, who is also hooded and walking among the crowd, then looks at the camera and begins a monologue during which he describes the history of the Grove and how, if you really want to get things done—like winning another presidential election—this is where you come to arrange the deal.
As Peter Martin Phillips in a doctoral dissertation published in 1994 titled A Relative Advantage: Sociology of the San Francisco Bohemian Club pointed out regarding these movers, shakers, and dealmakers who meet at the Grove, this place is “unique in American clubdom because it puts 2,000 to 3,000 mostly elite men together in the forest for up to sixteen days every summer. Of the top 800 corporations in the U.S. in 1980 30% had at least one officer or director at the Grove.”[i]
To give credit where credit is due, it is because of radio host Alex Jones that the public is aware this place actually exists and is indeed where the world’s most powerful men gather to do more than practice druid worship, drink, and pee on a tree. Super-secret talks have included the planning for the Manhattan Project—which led to the creation of the atom bomb (as Underwood mentions in the TV show).
Having said that, the secret annual meeting also involves occult rituals.
When Jones and a British filmmaker slipped into the Bohemian Grove thirty miles west of Santa Rosa, California, a few years ago, they recorded what is now known as the “Cremation of Care” ceremony. What they caught on camera is like something out of a Stanley Kubrick film. Hooded figures of some of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful men (which has included acting and former U.S. presidents such as George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Bilderberg mastermind Henry Kissinger, and similar participants) gathered beneath a forty-foot-tall stone owl surrounded by water. A child (or effigy) dubbed “Dull Care” was delivered by a ferryman on a small boat and placed on the altar before the owl, where it was burned as an offering for the purpose of magically alleviating the cares and concerns of those elitists making the sacrifice. Before Jones captured this astonishing ritual on film, American citizens were not even aware that such occultism is carried out under the cover of darkness by the world’s most powerful and respected leaders. Does this not cause reasonable people to question what other sorcery is occurring behind the veil?
On his website, Jones says: “This is like something out of a Hollywood movie, where teenagers are out camping in the wilderness and come over a hill and witness some devil cult in black and red garb sacrificing some poor soul on a bloody altar.” Jones has written about the similarity between the “Cremation of Care” rite and the ancient Canaanite worship of the owl god Molech, where children were sacrificed for nearly identical reasons. Scholars have debated whether the child sacrifices made to Molech were burned alive, or were slain elsewhere and then drained of blood and offered as food to the deity. If the former, a comparison is made between Molech and Kronos, from whose brazen arms children were rolled alive into an oven of fire. Like the Bohemian ritual, the ancient Baals Molech and Kronos were usually called upon to relieve the ones making the sacrifice of their earthly cares, and people who sought material prosperity believed their lives could be improved by offering the child as a sacrifice to the deity.
Three hundred years before Christ, the Greek author Kleitarchos recorded the dastardly process of sacrificing infants in “Cremations of Care” to Kronos:
Out of reverence for Kronos, the Phoenicians, and especially the Carthaginians, whenever they seek to obtain some great favor, vow one of their children, burning it as a sacrifice to the deity, if they are especially eager to gain success. There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall on the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing [such areas of child sacrifice were often called “the place of laughing”], until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier.[ii]
The sacrifice of children in this way was widespread in antiquity and was practiced by the children of Israel under the reign of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. A recent archeological find illustrated how far-reaching such offerings were when it unearthed the remains of more than twenty thousand infants who had been sacrificed to a single Baal.
For some, a better candidate than Molech for the deity represented at Bohemian Grove is the Mesopotamian storm demon Lilith, whose giant, horned statues once formed the highest competition to Yahweh. In Hebrew folklore, Lilith is “the dark wind of the storm” who takes the form of an owl (still worshipped in modern Beltane/Mayday rituals) and, among other things, overshadows the sacrifice of children. She is a powerful seductress who, before Eve’s creation, was Adam’s wife and lover, according to myth. The Cremation of Care ceremony conducted by US presidents and other elitists for her (or Molech) at Bohemian Grove is evidently especially seductive, given that metaphysicians among them believe the biblical version of Abraham’s test on Moriah was sanitized by Moses in the Genesis account in an attempt to cover up the actual practice of human sacrifice among ancient Hebrews. Perhaps at places like Bohemian Grove they see magic in a “corrected” version of the story—a heretical retelling—where Isaac is extinguished beneath the dark-winged one who rides in the whirlwind and heals her power-hungry and seduced worshippers of their cares. Some claim the same occultists even hid the image of the owl in the Masonically designed US dollar bill for very important and related magical reasons.
Whether that is true or not, the intersection between Bohemian Grove-like mysticism and American politics has a far longer relationship than the average citizen may ever consider. It reaches back to ancient Babylon, where an unbroken thread from then until modern times has been vigilantly maintained by secret orders in Washington, DC, that, early in our nation’s history, took residence as the designated keepers of the arcane wisdom. Russian occultist Madame H. P. Blavatsky once recognized this about America, and in her 1888 esoteric volumes The Secret Doctrine, said, “It is in America that the transformation will take place, and has already silently commenced.” [iii]
Since then, hundreds of occult masters have echoed Blavatsky’s recognition of America as the global power center for human apotheosis, designated by the founders and approved by the gods for what Manly P. Hall called “a secret destiny.” As thoroughly documented in my book Zenith 2016, this marriage between American patriotic ideas and metaphysical spirituality is clearly seen in the motivation of Vice President Henry Wallace and President Franklin Roosevelt’s decision to place the Great Seal on the US one-dollar bill. Both men were Freemasons who saw in the Seal a “Masonic prophecy” about a future leader—a Fourth Turning Grey Champion—who would one day take the helm as leader of not only the US but the world at the birth of a new global order.
When President George W. Bush in his second inaugural address spoke of America’s founders declaring “a new order of the ages,” he was referring to this coming empire from the Masonically designed Great Seal (novus ordo seclorum), and Bush further acknowledged that the secret society members who oversaw the seal’s prophetic design were acting on an “ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled.”[iv]
Of course, it’s not just Republicans who mix political stations with paranormal beliefs. Who can forget Bill Clinton’s foray into Voodoo magic (as investigated by Judi McLeod in 2005 involving a March 31, 1995, “visit to Haiti under Aristide’ s restored rule” where “Clinton took part in a Voodoo initiative ceremony intended to keep him impervious to Republican attacks and to guarantee his reelection)[v] and Hillary who, during her husband’s first term, came under heat for hosting “seances” in the White House with spirit-guide Jean Houston, during which she visited with the phantom of her political inspiration Eleanor Roosevelt.[vi]
Though Hillary today expresses her interest in becoming a Christian preacher, [vii] it was while speaking at a dedication ceremony for the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City in 2012 that Bill Clinton admitted Hillary talks with the dead and had even channeled a message for him from what might have been a familiar spirit calling itself “Eleanor,” which Hillary wanted him to let the family know about, which he seemed proud to repeat:
A special thanks to the members of the Roosevelt family who are here. And the one who is not, Eleanor, who made sure that the four freedoms were included in the preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. I know that because, as all of you famously learned when I served as president, my wife, now the secretary of State, was known to commune with Eleanor on a regular basis. And so she called me last night on her way home from Peru to remind me to say that. That Eleanor had talked to her and reminded her that I should say that.[viii]
According to author and journalist Bob Woodward, who helped break the Watergate scandal, when Hillary’s medium Jean Houston suggested she also talk with Jesus Christ, Hillary clammed up and refused to speak to the Son of God, which may be understandable, given recent Wikileaks discoveries that indicate something much creepier may have been transpiring between her and the dark side (thoroughly investigated in the upcoming book Saboteurs). Clinton insider Larry Nichols perhaps put his finger on part of the forbidden knowledge when he said Bill Clinton told him that Hillary was a member of a coven in California that regularly met to practice witchcraft.
Bill told me that she was going out there, she and a group of women, and she would be a part of a witch’s church. Man, when Bill told me that, he could have hit me with a baseball bat. I tried to point out to him, “Do you realize what would happen if that got out?” Of course my job was to make sure it didn’t get out.
Now I don’t know…if Hillary still partakes in the witch ritual…. But for the better part of many years, Hillary would go quite often, whether it was regularly once a month, or maybe once every couple of months, she would go out on the weekend simply to be a part of it.[ix]
Are such comments by Larry Nichols trustworthy?
Given that third-party information by anyone can be suspect, I find far more concerning the revelations from Wikileaks in which private e-mails between Hillary, John Podesta, and others from their own private computers were uncovered that disclose a radical level of occultism was indeed going on, and it is right out of the Libri of Aleister Crowley.
On this, Douglas Ernst of the Washington Times released a stunner of a headline November 4, 2016: “WikiLeaks: Podesta invited to ‘Spirit’ dinner; host’s known ‘recipes’ demand breast milk, sperm.” The feature story involved WikiLeaks’ releases of stolen e-mails belonging to John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman at the time (besides WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange releasing Podesta and Hillary e-mails, federal agents had found documents linked to Mrs. Clinton’s e-mail server while investigating former congressman, Anthony Weiner, who was later found guilty of sending illicit texts to a minor girl). The Washington Times’ featured e-mail in the story was one from John’s brother, Tony, inviting him to a “Spirit Cooking dinner” to be hosted at the home of Marina Abramovic, a so-called artist whose Spirit Cooking with Essential Aphrodisiac Recipes was released in 1996. Abramovic’s recipes include ingredients similar to what infamous occultist Aliester Crowley taught his disciples to use when communicating with fallen angels—blood, urine, breast milk, sperm, and other elements that are consumed by satanists on particular nights to bring their actions and thoughts into contact with supernaturalism (New York’s Museum of Modern Art even called Abramovic’s “cookbook” a manual for “evocative instructions for actions or thoughts”).
“Dear Tony, I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place,” Ms. Abramovic says in a June 25 e-mail. “Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother [John] is joining? All my love, Marina.” Tony forwarded the e-mail to John, adding, “Are you in NYC Thursday July 9 Marina wants you to come to dinner?”
It is unknown if John Podesta attended the ceremony or what may have taken place if he did, but Ms. Abramovic is a self-proclaimed mystic whose “artistic” demonstrations include cutting and stabbing herself with sharp knives during masochistic rituals, depictions of cannibalism, getting naked and slithering about on the floor with snakes, and, under the right circumstances (she says), seeing through a dimensional veil into the future. Aliester Crowley claimed the same. We also know a bit about Ms. Abramovic’s secret demonstrations from a thoroughly disgusting gala dinner she conducted and that was hosted at MOCA Grand Avenue on November 12, 2011, in Los Angeles, California. Seven hundred fifty guests were there that night, including celebrities like Will Ferrell, Gwen Stefani, Tilda Swinton, Pamela Anderson, Gov. Jerry Brown, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and numerous others. They each paid $2,500 and more to be seated where human heads protruded as centerpieces through holes in dinner tables and food was served that included bloody-looking meats and spaghetti that appeared like human intestines and bowels. Elsewhere in the room that evening, nude “performers” lay on top of skeletons and “breathed life into them” while life-sized nude cake replicas of Abramovic and the evening’s singer, Debbie Harry, were carried out and ritualistically “sacrificed” with large knives thrust into their hearts. The razor-sharp cutting devices exposed the “murdered” women’s blood-red innards, followed by the evening’s guests laughing and eating the two “ladies.” When I watched the presentation for this and reviewed the published images (you can see them for yourself online, but be warned they are very disturbing), I wondered where the outrage was among the women’s rights advocates amidst these liberals! Really? Depicting the grotesque slaughter and consumption of female murder victims is fun and entertaining?
Beyond the absurdity of the symbolically satanic and revolting gala above, the fact that former highly placed Hillary staffers are on a first-name basis with people like Abramovic and participate in “spirit-cooking” rituals is not only concerning, but leaves reason to believe this is just the tip of the iceberg.
I say that because, as devotees of Crowley occultism are fully aware, a sinister secret is manifest from the Podesta e-mails having to do with Hillary and a series of sex-magic rituals that were conducted between January through March in 1946. These ceremonies were called the Babalon Working.
I’ll get to that in the next entry and what it may have to do with Hillary… or at least what some of her esoteric friends appear to believe it did (and still does) have to do with her and YOUR future…
ALREADY HAILED AS “BY FAR DR. THOMAS HORN’S MOST IMPORTANT WORK… EVER!”
This last week Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s bid to pass the so-called ‘skinny bill’ repeal of Obamacare failed when republican John McCain joined establishment Democrats and two other Republican holdouts to vote against the measure.
For frustrated voters, it was the latest example of establishment bureaucrats subverting promises made to American citizens during the 2016 presidential campaign trail. Just another display of do-nothing government officials wasting our time at the Nation’s capital, right?
I’m here to prove this disturbing rabbit hole is much more than what may appear on the surface, and little by little I will take readers there over the course of the next few weeks.
Besides the federal bureaucracy and shadow-government described in Part 1 of this series, according to several leading analysts, an actual “coup” is afoot to overturn the 2016 election. “A soft coup is underway right here in the United States of America in an attempt to overturn November’s election result, and forcibly remove a duly elected president,” Sean Hannity of Fox News warned recently. [i] Lou Dobbs, Ben Stein, Gary Bauer, members of the US House of Representatives such as Tom Tancredo, Congressmen like Mike Kelly and others are drawing the same conclusion. Kurt Schlichter of TownHall.com is already speculating how this could happen via an orchestrated “Military Coup Against Donald Trump” in 2018. [ii]
Even ultra-liberal Right Wing Watch of “People for the American Way” (who have repeatedly attacked me personally on their fake news website), which was formed in 1980 to counter the Christian Right, Republican Party, and Jerry Falwell’s “Moral Majority,” recently quoted pastor E.W. Jackson, who argued on his radio program that a “coup d’etat” (a change of government illegally or by force) is being orchestrated. [iii]
“Folks, hold on to your seats, because I really believe that we are witnessing an attempted coup d’état in America. I’m serious about that. I believe that we are witnessing an attempted coup d’état in America,” Jackson said.
According to criminal attorney Robert Barnes, the shadow-man directly responsible for this deep state de facto coup is none other than Barack Obama. [iv] Last Thursday former aide to President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, agreed this seditious conspiracy is really happening, saying Obama is operating a ‘secret war room’ two miles from the White House tasked with toppling President Trump and his ‘Make America Great Again’ agenda. [v]
Although a growing number of Americans, regardless of party affiliation, are aware of the huge extent of anti-trump media bias (supported by the findings of Harvard Kennedy School academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy who found all ten of the major media outlets in America were negative in as many as 98% of their reports on Trump during the first one-hundred days of his administration) [vi] and are already exhausted by the hysterical attacks on and typecasting of every breath Trump makes and who simply want their elected officials to actually govern (imagine that!), the extreme left, which controls the media megaphone and who own a massive swath of establishment RINOs and members of the Democratic party, are firmly committed to nothing less than the engineering of a new socialist world order from the chaos and ashes of our formerly great Republic (which speaks to the occult roots and agenda playing out now in the United States, which I will briefly summarize later in this series but in much greater detail in the upcoming book SABOTEURS).
Michael Laitman said it very well over at The Jerusalem Post:
Neoliberalism, which has destroyed Europe through immigration, and nearly destroyed the US by eliminating its middle class, has been the sole ruling agenda in the US for decades. It serves the interests of the small elite group of magnates who control the American economy, the media, and thereby the government, all the way up to the White House. They determine what is reported and what is not, who is defamed and who is glorified. By controlling the media, they have dominated public discourse, public opinion, and have avoided criticism. This is ingenious, but deadly to society.
Their best interest is not the best interest of the American people. They aspire for world domination… through proxies such as Obama and Clinton…
Every American need not only understand these facts, but something else, too. When Daniel Webster, the great 18th Century orator, statesman and constitutional lawyer said: “I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from… the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government… I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing,” he was speaking directly to the vice of the current American coup. In other words, I am arguing that what we are witnessing isn’t just a calculated effort to bring down the non-establishment’s president. It’s a scheme against every citizen of free society that values the ability to govern itself. It’s a plot, and an ancient one at that, to disrupt momentum aimed at circumventing the entrenched cabal’s cross-party perpetual rule from DC. An outsider named Trump came to Washington’s power center “to restore a traditional regime of citizenship, individualism, assimilation, territorial sovereignty, recognized borders, strong defense, deterrence abroad, and free-market capitalism” [vii] and he is not part of the Bohemian club. They will not tolerate that. They are committed to expelling him, and by extension, any effort from you—the grassroots—to liberate yourself, your family, and the nation’s future from the ruling class.
This is not a bold statement.
What you see happening in media and on the extreme left (and from RINO Republicans) today is more than just the activity of Never-Trumpers and “sore losers.” This is the manifest incarnation of a Fourth Reich whose purpose in sabotaging Trump as the duly elected president of the United States is an outright and hostile rejection of the choice voters made on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
“With the election over, the Democratic Party is now in the hands of the Bernie Sanders-Tom Perez-Keith Ellison-Barack Obama radical left,” David Horowitz recently wrote. “Abetted by a corrupt media, funded by the anti-American billionaire George Soros, egged on by Obama’s corrupt attorney general, Loretta Lynch, and a collusive press, the left has launched vile and violent demonstrations in the streets, rancid witch-hunts in the halls of Congress posing as ‘confirmation hearings,’ and treasonous intelligence leaks [through which] Obama and his cohorts have disregarded the Constitution and the law to spy on reporters they do not like, to use the IRS and other government agencies to take down their opponents and undermine the democratic system.” [viii]
Presidential historian Doug Wead echoed Horowitz’s comments on air recently with Lou Dobbs, saying he is convinced that “operatives” of the deep state really are attempting a coup d’état of President Trump. [ix]
Historian Doug Wead on Lou Dobbs
But as professor Wead also pointed out during that program, this shouldn’t come as any real surprise because America’s deep state intelligence agencies including the CIA, State Department, and media have a long history of overthrowing duly elected democratic foreign governments. Recent examples include Iraq, Iran, the Ukraine, and before that, Vietnam, Egypt, the Phillippines and other countries where highly skilled American operatives engrained themselves among civilian provocateurs and, as they are engineering in the US right now, assisted “popular uprisings”.
Obama even admitted the United States’ involvement in the Ukrainian crisis and that he himself “brokered the deal” in support of regime change and transition of power. [x]
With Obama admittedly educated in the tried and true policies of coups and coercive propaganda, Wead’s analysis to Dobbs that the same decidedly trained apparatus has now been put into motion in our own country to overthrow the duly elected Republican president holds merit.
Of course, the real reason to employ such a slow or “soft” coup (as some have described what we are witnessing) is self-evident—an attempted violent or military overthrow of the American government would not be tolerated by the vast-majority of citizens regardless of party and the enterprising cult behind it would expose too much of their hand and quickly be rejected. We are just too comfortable in modern America to tolerate such a strategy. Thus, working to get the populace to surrender their will through brainwashing over a longer period of time is the preferred modus operandi. (Shucks! It’s even entertaining for activists and so-called progressives who believe the mechanisms of the deep state were put in place for the very purpose of enforcing a thoroughly left-wing society on the populace anyway to watch how contemporary society has forgotten the lessons of history and are surrendering power to them to repeat the mistakes of the past!)
And, as bat-wing crazy as some of these enemies of the state are, they are correct in their understanding that lasting political power in industrialized countries is not gained through bloody revolution. Even Karl Marx—who advocated violent overthrows—recognized this when he wrote in his 1848 Communist Manifesto how to defeat America from the inside-out. He knew that in this “land of the free and the home of the brave” you would have to change the course of the nation slowly, incrementally, through winning elections and creating laws using what he called “cultural hegemony” or domination of a culturally diverse society by the ruling class who manipulate the culture of that society—the beliefs, explanations, perceptions, values, and mores—so that their imposed, ruling-class worldview eventually becomes the accepted cultural norm. [xi]
If a populace remains conservative in their values, then they will always vote conservatives into places of authority. Thus, according to Marx, the best way to slowly change a developed nation to communistic, is to first win over the populace with liberal or “progressive” ideas—from pop-culture memes to mass media propaganda to infiltrating institutions of higher education with leftist philosophers and so on—and then eventually socialism or communism would take root without the need for violent overthrow.
With that in mind, when I look at what has happened since the 1950s through the Obama-era experiment and Bernie Sanders “democratic socialism,” I gasp at where we may be today. Our forefathers who gave their lives on the battlefield to defend and protect the American dream could be rolling over in their graves while the ghost of Karl Marx laughs from somewhere deep inside Cocytus, the Ninth Circle of Hell.
And when I consider how the slow coup playing out before us today could be the manifestation of this decades long scheme to bring our nation to a tipping point for a new “order out of chaos,” and how those efforts at first appear frighteningly successful on our college campuses, I perceive that the contempt of Trump by the ludicrous fringe may be a symptom of a much deeper national malaise.
But then, when I look at how Trump was elected against all odds and despite an unmerciful propaganda machine, I realize the average American and the values held dear by the majority of them may not be buying into the great lie after all. Like generations of Americans have done before, the grassroots over recent decades may simply have been patient, willing to listen, weighed options, and then in 2016 they woke up, rose up, and made their decision to reject the demonic conspiracy through the voting machine—a gut-level ‘spiritual’ chain reaction that was about far more than electing a man named Donald Trump.
That is what it looks like happened, and this is why the radical left is in a tizzy now. Trump’s historic victory appears to be a rejection of their globalist vision by a small but significant majority, a paradigm shift away from Marxism, and they are beside themselves because of it. Trump torpedoing their proletarian plan to use America’s resources for the final stages of a worldwide borderless, de-populationist economic order and world government echoes Brexit and potentially even the final era of socialist-communist philosophies worldwide, which aligns with what Trump said he would work toward if elected.
Another relevant issue here that Trump promised was to reenact the economic policies of Ronald Reagan, which nearly single-handedly saved the West from its inflationary spiral “that had allowed communist resource-based economies to flourish. After the Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989, Russia was forced into a U.S. bailout and China adopted ‘Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics.’” [xii]
In the upcoming book Saboteurs I examine financial policy as reflected in Trump administration campaign promises, why Wall Street and job-creators reacts so positively [xiii] every time they think “the Donald” may actually get a chance to expedite a new Reaganomics era, and why free market competition has historically and consistently outperformed socialist-communist alternatives and delivered commercial trade and industry successes time after time.
But for now, if you’ve read the anthology When Once We Were a Nation (Defender Publishing, 2017), you already know why I am such a fan of American Capitalism as the engine of strong economies. My family—Grandpa, Grandma, Mom, Dad and cousins came through the Great Depression. Their lives were the actual story of the Oklahoma family—the Joads—depicted in the 1940 classic film, The Grapes of Wrath, who, after abandoning their farm during the Dust Bowl and Great Depression of the 1930s, became migrant workers and ended up in California. They were the rugged individuals and “new pioneers” short on cash but high in faith that later provided the perfect role models for me and my generation to learn from concerning those things in life that should really matter and be cherished. They’ve been gone now for many years, and with them most of the Great Generation. But when by contrast I consider the things people like Bernie Sanders value today, I tremble. We live at a time when it is tempting for college kids, who because of historical revisionism often have no idea where our greatness as a nation came from, to feel “entitled” to things they have not earned and, according to polls, increasing believe others who have worked hard to succeed owe them, including free higher education, free universal health care, housing assistance and so on. This represents a crossroads that, whether you like Trump or not (and, like I’ve already said, there are a lot of things that frustrate me with the Donald), is reflected in the current election cycle. Old-timers know and others can sense that our country has entered dangerous political waters in which a growing number of citizens either never knew about or have forgotten the lessons of the communist countries whose disastrous failed policies caused their economies to crumble like dominoes following the Cold War. Among the growing cast of Americans (including many Christians) that are ignorant of these facts are those who actually prefer a turn from free market capitalism (which built the most powerful, progressive, and giving society in history) to socialism. Recent Barna polling confirms this scary trend, with current surveys showing a mind-numbing 40% of US citizens now affirming they prefer socialism to capitalism. [xiv] Such people are cozy with ideas like a “Universal Basic Income” that for all intents and purposes would enslave them as subordinates to a machine of “goods and services” production for redistribution to others. This stands at diametric opposition to the capitalist system America’s forefathers died to protect in which individual efforts are rewarded and outweigh the collective (i.e. the New Testament model where if you are able to work but won’t, you don’t eat) wherein the free market determines the distribution of goods. Suffice it to recognize the irony here. While socialism promises a shared level ground it actually discourages personal creativity, favors state over individual controls, and lowers the living standard for all while providing little method or motivation for advancement or prosperity by hard-working and ambitious individuals. Conversely American capitalism historically resulted in the abundance of capital that fed the hungry of the world and built the hospitals and care facilities that to this day assist the needy. This is one reason I believe America needs an awakening. First, a spiritual revival, and second, a cultural awakening defined by the reestablishment of Great Generation principles and behavior that could positively strengthen, re-characterize and rejuvenate our society. Donald Trump, as inarticulate as he is, has captured the essence of this longing with his political jargons, “We can be great again” and “We can win again.” I’d like to believe that on those points Mr. Trump is right. I’d like to think America can once more be a nation of winners, of rugged individualism and pioneering determination. Yet I also understand that very powerful forces, both spiritual and political are devoted to the opposite—the enslavement of all mankind beneath a socialist umbrella under which national boundaries dissolve and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty. Prophecy says that this is coming and that, at the head of this “utopian” administration, a single personality is going to surface. He will at first appear to be a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become “a king of fierce countenance” (Daniel 8:23). With imperious decree, he will facilitate a One-World Government, universal religion, and global socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed until at last he exalts himself “above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).
Between current and former national American leaders, there are candidates among them who not only see themselves in the role of this leader, but they covet the position. Even the tenants of their own ancient occultism tell them that day is nearing when “The Secret Destiny of America” will produce a situation wherein one of them can rise to become the destroyer of worlds. In the next few entries I want to examine this phenomenon and a profound spiritual question: is the arrival of Donald Trump something that God was behind for reasons beyond what most can discern through the lens of political and spiritual analysis?
