Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. —Woodrow Wilson
The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes. —U.S. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter
This week as the Wall Street Journal exuded the opening of the new Fire Temple in Houston (Zoroastrianism Rises in North America), celebrating how the highest rituals of the ancient enemy of Israel (and of the prophet Daniel, the angel Gabriel, and Jehovah) is spreading across the U.S. and Canada, I thought I should enlighten those who may not understand how and why we are seeing the rise of cults that until recently were unknown to most westerners.
On January 20, 2001, President George W. Bush, during his first inaugural address, faced the Obelisk known as the Washington Monument and twice referred to an angel that “rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.” His reference was credited to Virginia statesman John Page, who wrote to Thomas Jefferson after the Declaration of Independence was signed, “We know the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?”
Five weeks after the inaugural, on Wednesday, February 28, 2001, Congressman Major R. Owens of New York stood before the House of Representatives and prayed to the “angel in the whirlwind.” He asked the spiritual force to guide the future and fate of the United States.[i] Twenty-eight weeks later (for a total of thirty-three weeks from the day of the inaugural—a number invaluable to mysticism and occult fraternities), nineteen Islamic terrorists attacked the United States (according to the official story), hijacking four commercial airliners and crashing two of them into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. They slammed a third into the Pentagon, and a fourth, which had been directed toward Washington DC, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. What happened that day resulted in nearly three thousand immediate deaths, at least two dozen missing persons, and the stage being set for changes to the existing world order.
When Bush was giving his second inaugural speech four years later, he again offered cryptic commentary, saying, “For a half century, America defended our own freedom by standing watch on distant borders. After the shipwreck of communism came years of relative quiet, years of repose, years of sabbatical—and then there came a day of fire.” A few paragraphs following, Bush added, “By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well—a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world” (emphasis added).
The phrase, “a fire in the minds of men,” is from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s nineteenth-century book, The Possessed (“The Devils”), a novel set in pre-revolutionary Russia, where civil resistance is seen championed by nihilist Sergei Nechaev, who tries to ignite a revolution of such destructive power that society will be completely destroyed. The fact that a United States president would quote this phrase in an official speech of record was astonishing to many analysts, given that The Possessed is about violent government crackdown on dissent that sparks today’s familiar civil unrest and revolution marked by public violence.[ii] Fire in the Minds of Men is also the title historian James H. Billington chose for his famous book on the history of revolutions, including the origin of occult Freemasonry and its influence in the American Revolution. In his closing comments, Bush himself tied the inaugural crypticisms to the Masonic involvement in the American Revolution, saying, “When our Founders declared a new order of the ages, they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled.” The phrase, “a new order of the ages,” is taken from the Masonically designed Great Seal (novus ordo seclorum), and Bush further acknowledged that the secret society members were acting on an “ancient” hope that is “meant to be fulfilled.”
To the illumined elite and a handful of historians and scholars, the inaugural addresses by the president were important editions in a larger series of carefully crafted speeches in which line-by-line analysis of his public references uncovered what appeared to be coded language designed to convey shrouded messages at regular intervals to select members of his global audience. Biblical scholar Bruce Lincoln’s examination of a speech delivered by Bush to the nation on October 7, 2001 announcing the U.S. attack on Afghanistan repeatedly verified this practice, producing redundant, hidden references from apocalyptic books of the Bible concerning the end times.[iii] Lincoln concluded that the word-crafting was a strategy of “double coding” to secretly appeal to people in Bush’s inner (occult) circle who hoped to engage “a Manichaean struggle, where Sons of Light confront Sons of Darkness, and all must enlist on one side or another, without possibility of neutrality, hesitation, or middle ground.”[iv]
In his book, American Dynasty, Kevin Phillips confirms this practice of message-coding by Bush, pointing out the ever-present references in the president’s speeches to words such as “evil” and “evil ones.”[v] At the top of Phillips’ list is reference again to the use of the metaphysical phrase “whirlwind,” which he interprets as “a medium for the voice of God.” From an esoteric point of view, Phillips was either unaware of or unwilling to discuss the deeper, contemporary meaning of this language and its importance to secret societies. But such phrasing in the president’s public speeches assuredly did not go unnoticed by the appropriate members of his audience. Lincoln comes closest to acknowledging this when he writes:
Enlisting the specialized reading/listening and hermeneutical skills they cultivate, he encouraged them to probe beneath the surface of his text. There, sotto voce [“under voice”], he told them he understands and sympathizes with their views, even if requirements of his office constrain him from giving full-throated voice.[vi]
Of course, Bush was not the first president to use the language of the divine. Yet few would argue that, with George W. Bush, he set the nation believably on a path toward an apocalyptic vision led by inspiration from the angel in the whirlwind. Whether the president fully understood the ramifications of his words and actions, he and others around him had: 1) acknowledged; 2) prayed to; and 3) welcomed supernatural agents to guide and influence the future machine of national sovereignty in a way oddly familiar to end-times prophecy and Dostoyevsky’s novel.
We allow that the president might have been unaware of parts of his abstruse actions because he was not the author of his speeches in the conventional sense; members of his staff, with input from unnamed guides, crafted most of these words. Bush nevertheless delivered these speeches after reviewing them, contemplating them, practicing them, and making personal margin notes. More importantly, “He spoke in his official capacity as head of state, representing the state and beyond that the nation,” notes Lincoln. So whether Bush was aware of his actions or was puppeted by SHADOWLAND allegiances that he and his father had nurtured, occultists in and behind government knew exactly what they were doing. Their choice of words and actions—from the president’s speeches to the counsel he received from members of an elite, top-secret cell of spiritual authorities in Washington (note: this is not a reference to the Christian groups or faith councils that meet with U.S. presidents)—reveal subtle but informing truths: Words were placed in the president’s mouth to be spoken in mystic harmony of a sacred craft, an otherworldly discourse, which the men behind the president, the “voices behind the voice,” believed would invoke the arrival of a spiritual “kingdom on earth” led by an embodied theocratic representative if these words were uttered at the right moment in history and from chosen men. For this “Angel in the Whirlwind,” wrote Christopher Findlay, “also carries unsettling connotations of a day of vengeance and judgment…a notion that appeals to…the apocalyptic frame of mind…reminiscent of Winthrop’s ‘shining city on a hill’ image, coupled with the fear of being expelled from this earthly paradise if the new society should fail to fulfill its role in the divine plan.”[vii]
Later, when some in the public were taking courage that the midterm backlash of November 2006 had sufficiently restrained the administration’s dreams of playing a vital role in initiating Armageddon, behind the scenes in Washington DC, this influential group of powerful men retained faith in their paranormal forces. Setting their eyes on the timeframe of 2016-2020, they were not for the moment concerned if Congress or even the executive branch changed hands now and again. They had received what they wanted—official invitation to supernaturalism by the nation’s leaders and, for sufficient time, conformity by the majority of uninitiated Americans. An angel from the whirlwind spread its powerful wings, and a new epoch in American history was ushered in, a time when the government of the U.S. was intentionally brought under influence to dark angelic power.
The statement above may seem daring. But the connection between Bush’s speeches, signals to “the family” of spiritual advisors as well as to the leaders of the Craft, the Bush administration’s subsequent actions, and coalescence of Congress—and, for a while, the majority of Americans—set in motion the rules for cosmic game play as defined in the sacred texts of all major religions, including the Bible. Invitation to angels by elected officials, combined with passive civilian conformity, is key to opening doorways for supernatural agents to engage social governance. This is a classic tenet of demonology. Spirits go where they are invited, whether to possess an individual or to take dominion over a region. One could contend, therefore, that starting in 2001, the United States became so disposed in following and not challenging unprecedented changes to longstanding U.S. policies, including the Christian rules for just war, that a powerful force known to the Illuminati as the “Moriah Conquering Wind,” a.k.a. “the angel in the whirlwind,” accepted the administration’s invitation and enthroned itself in the nation’s capital.
This is where Zoroastrianism comes in.
In view of more recent history, and given scriptural support for the idea that supernatural forces can be set in motion or “loosed and bound” above nations in response to government conduct, speeches, symbols, rituals, and gestures, I note with special interest not only the “angel in the whirlwind” that Bush invoked for America’s favor, but also the “evil” angel Ahriman, the most powerful of all dark angels. In the tenth chapter of Daniel, Ahriman is indirectly referred to as the “prince” over Iraq/Babylon, where the prophet had been fasting and praying for twenty-one days, hoping the God of Israel would see his fast and grant him revelation of Israel’s future. On the twenty-first day of his fast, the angel Gabriel appeared and informed Daniel, “From the first day thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words” (Daniel 10:12). If an angel had been dispatched from heaven from the first day, why did it take twenty-one days before he arrived? Gabriel provided the answer by explaining that a supernatural Persian “prince” had opposed him for twenty-one days. Not until Michael, the archangel, came to assist in this conflict was Gabriel free to continue his journey (Daniel 10:13).
In ancient Persian/Iranian Zoroastrianism, the spirit that opposed Gabriel is identified as Ahriman—enemy of Ahura Mazda. According to Zoroastrianism, he was the powerful and self-existing evil spirit from whom war and all other evils had their origin, and he was the chief of the cacodaemons, or fallen angels, expelled from heaven for their sins. The Bible identifies him specifically as “the prince of the kingdom of Persia” (Iraq/Iran), the same area that George W. Bush, like his father before him, viewed as integral to the launching of a New World Order. In this regard, the Bushes fulfilled prophecy, as the beginning of Babylon was the Tower of Babel, where at the macro level Satan’s strategy to formulate a one-world system was initiated. Thereafter, Babylon is viewed as equivalent to a satanic world system at enmity with God and the final “kingdom-spirit” against which God will do battle (Revelation 14:8; 17:5). The Bushes are learned men and members of more than one esoteric order, implying that they may have known exactly what they were doing, and why.
Given widespread doctrine among various religious orders concerning this cause-and-effect relationship between “binding and loosing” of geopolitical supernaturalism, a question arises: During the American invasion of Iraq, was the Bush administration or a multinational power elite operating behind U.S. political machinations trying to “bind” something in or above Babylon through “loosing” the angel in the whirlwind? In other words, was an intentional effort made to magically limit interference from Ahriman? Mystical language used by officials during this time frame did seem to be summoning appropriate forces connected to these entities, including the “angel in the whirlwind,” the “mother of all bombs” (MOAB), and even the title by which the U.S. battle plan was launched—“Shekinah,” pronounced “Shock-n-Awe.”
The specifically chosen words, gesticulations, and emblems so employed by key members of the U.S. administration following 9/11 were in fact stunning in their parallel to the deeper destiny for which occultists believe America was designed, and which illuminated fraternities know is graphically depicted in the history, mottoes, layout, and architecture of the nation’s capital. When the esoteric statements employed by the Bush era involving a New World Order rising from the ashes of chaos is reflected against the “prophetic” design of Washington DC, even the hardiest skeptic is drawn to consider that an occult hand had been at work beginning well over two hundred years ago and up through this century in the “symbols and emblems” associated with the U.S. cities, buildings, monuments, numbers, and official seals that played a role before, on, and after 9/11. As the late David Flynn, author of the best-selling book, Temple at the Center of Time, e-mailed me to say:
The combined occultic numbers, places, people and timing involved in the “terrorist attack” is so consistent with the goals of the Mystery organizations concerning “the secret destiny of America,” that it goes beyond the agency of mere humans alone.
Researcher David Bay, director of Cutting Edge Ministries agreed, interpreting the events surrounding 9/11 as a catalyst for the last stage in the Masonic Baconian New Atlantis. Bay pointed out that even the street design in Government Center in Washington DC:
…has been cunningly laid out in such a manner that certain Luciferic symbols are depicted by the streets, cul-de-sacs and rotaries…[which demonstrate] that the American continent was to [rise from the ashes of chaos] as the new “Atlantis,” and its destiny was to assume the global leadership of the drive to the New World Order. From the beginning, the United States of America was chosen to lead the world into this kingdom of Antichrist, and Washington DC was to be its capital.[viii]
Interesting isn’t it that ole’ Skull & Bones George W. Bush is back in the news again, resisting Trump’s efforts to steer America away from anarchy and joining hands once more with his old “Ordo-ab-Chao” illuminati pals like Obama to put America back on a globalist track, which the Angel in the Whirlwind demands.
