California recently voted to become a “sanctuary state,” a move that plays into the hands of the globalist agenda, Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis tells Jim Bakker. “Nation-states that are sovereign are going to be wiped away because that’s globalists are all about. They don’t want us to have nation-states, they want one-world governance under their elite control,” Maginnis says. According to NPR, the California Values Act would forbid state and local law enforcement agencies from providing information to or acting as the deputies for federal immigration authorities. The bill also prohibits police and sheriff officers from inquiring about a person’s immigration status. “And these people think they are genetically predisposed to be smarter than the rest of us where they can reimpose a feudalistic system that dictates everything that we consume and do,” Maginnis says.

The late Paul Harvey was a conservative talk-radio pioneer. He intrigued listeners by beginning a story, stopping to take a commercial break and returning with his trademark line, now for “the rest of the story.” Usually, the rest of that story held a surprise ending. His niche was not necessarily to preach as much as it was to educate through storytelling, often sharing the “mysteries of history” to make a point. When Harvey did don his commentary hat, it usually was to voice concerns about America’s deterioration. One of his best-known broadcasts was a 1964 soliloquy on the decline of American moralism aptly titled “If I Were the Devil: How to Destroy America.” (READ MORE)
Franklin D. Roosevelt—the thirty-second president of the US—decided to run for an unprecedented third term and chose as his running mate for the vice-presidency the secretary of agriculture, 32nd-Degree Freemason, and self-appointed “practical mystic” Henry Agard Wallace. Roosevelt saw in Wallace an avid supporter of the New Deal, but Wallace’s appeal was such that he could flatter both upper crust businessmen and big-city unionists as well as the blue-collar citizens of the nation. Democratic National Committee Chairman Jim Farley did not approve of Roosevelt’s choice for VP, and he said as much when he spoke to both Roosevelt and his first lady, Eleanor. Eleanor was a powerful voice in the government, heavily involved with civil rights activism. After Farley voiced his concerns about Wallace’s liberalism and his dabbling into the deep realms of mysticism and the occult, Eleanor agreed with Farley and tried to encourage the president to move on to someone else. Roosevelt—a 32nd-Degree Mason and Knight of Pythias (Shriner) with an equal thirst for mysticism—defended Wallace, however, praising him for his ability to lead others to a greater enlightenment, and then followed up by composing a speech that firmly stated his acceptance for nomination would only come after the acceptance of Wallace as VP. Eleanor was the first woman to give a speech to the Democratic National Convention, in which she conceded and asked the rest of FDR’s supporters to do likewise. Wallace, as a result, became the thirty-third vice president of the US.
But a White House inter-office memo had already begun to show the delegates by 1935 that these two men had a bizarre relationship centering on more than just politics and government, as Wallace wrote to FDR:
I feel for a short time yet that we must deal with the “strong ones,” the “turbulent ones,” the “fervent ones,” and perhaps even with a temporary resurgence, with the “flameless ones,” who with the last dying gasp will strive to reanimate their dying giant “Capitalism.” Mr. President, you can be the “flaming one,” the one with an ever-upsurging spirit to lead into the time when the children of men can sing again.[i]
But such strange language haunted many of Wallace’s writings, as he had been a devout follower of Roerich philosophy.
Roerich was a painter, writer, philosopher, theosophist, archeologist, enlightener, and a growing public figure known by his birth name Nikolai Konstantinovich Rerikh in Russia before he left in 1918. After a brief stop in Finland and Scandinavia, he and his wife Helena traveled onward to London in 1919, where they founded the Agni Yoga Society, a school of mysticism (referred to by Roerich and his wife as the “system of living ethics”) syncretizing spirituality and art. Followers of the Roerich Agni Yoga Society tell how Roerich and his wife were given the secrets of their art by Master Morya, the guru of Helena Blavatsky, who was a founder of the Theosophical Society of New York in 1875. Roerich’s oil paintings were extravagant, earning him grand social connections all across England including H. G. Wells and a notable Buddhist by the name of Christmas Humphreys. His work was so profoundly affecting that they have been repeatedly remembered as “hypnotic.” (His stance on the preservation of culture and art during war became so powerful over time, that when the inter-American “Treaty on the Protection of Artistic and Scientific Institutions and Historic Monuments” was penned in 1935, it was quickly and appropriately coined the “Roerich Pact.” Subsequently, for the same and related endeavors, Roerich was nominated several times for the Nobel Peace Prize.)
After making an impression throughout the States with his oil paintings, Roerich was invited to the Art Institute of Chicago by its director to tour the country. He accepted, arrived by boat in 1920, and remained on US soil for three years, during which time he again made remarkable social connections. They quickly established several private societies and institutions of learning, all of which focused on deeply theosophical mysticism. Discontent to stay put, Roerich and his wife continued to travel the world, making a huge impact on every culture they visited. His legacy was so vast that even a planet was named after him (the “4426 Roerich”).
But perhaps the greatest thing the Roerichs would be remembered for was their work in spiritual masteries toward the common goal of a utopian world (a “New Atlantis”) with ideal societies, the philosophies and plans of which they both openly attributed to deities and entities who were not of this world via the lessons of Madame Blavatsky’s theosophical Secret Doctrine. His teachings are still to this day imparted all over the globe, and his paintings are still on display in many countries, including the Nicholas Roerich Museum in New York, where people travel immense distances to experience the pinnacle of spiritual pilgrimage.

MUST WATCH “SABOTEURS” TRAILER WITH MUST-HAVE GIVEAWAY!
Wallace was overtaken by Roerich’s occult wisdom traditions and enlightenment trainings. Roerich’s particular devotion to mysticism was, however, increasingly focused on apocalyptic themes surrounding the coming of a new earthly order, which struck a chord with Wallace in the states at the peak of his political influence. But just before the third-term campaign with FDR, the Republican Party campaign team got their hands on Wallace’s “Dear Guru” letters that he had addressed to Roerich. In them, he repeatedly and lovingly referred to this new utopia filled with a special breed of people in a mythical kingdom of order (though it was not “mythical” in Wallace’s opinion). The Roerich/Blavatsky disciple brainstormed with his crew and counterattacked with a threat to expose Republican candidate Wendell Willkie’s extramarital affair, and at least for a time, the Dear Guru letters were contained. They were publicized years later by opponent Westbrook Pegler when Wallace ran for president in the 1948 election, which is why the public has access to them today.
One such letter read in part:
Long have I been aware of the occasional fragrance from that other world which is the real world. But now I must live in the outer world and at the same time make over my mind and body to serve as fit instruments for the Lord of Justice. The changes in awareness must come as a result of steady, earnest recollectedness. I shall strive to grow as rapidly as possible…. Yes, the Chalice is filling.[ii]
This is a startling thing for a man in Wallace’s position to say, considering Blavatsky’s book Secret Doctrine defined the Lord of Justice as Osiris. Reciting the credos adopted from the seventeenth chapter of the Book of the Dead, Blavatsky says:
Thus, in the seventeenth chapter…one finds Osiris saying he is Toum (the creative force in nature, giving form to all Beings, spirits and men), self-generated and self-existent….
He is the Fire and Water, i.e., Noun the primordial parent, and he created the gods out of his limbs….
He is the Law of existence and Being (v. 10), the Bennoo (or phoenix, the bird of resurrection in Eternity), in whom night follows the day, and day the night—an allusion to the periodical cycles of cosmic resurrection and human re-incarnation; for what can this mean? “The wayfarer who crosses millions of years, in the name of One, and the great green (primordial water or Chaos) the name of the other” (v. 17), one begetting millions of years in succession, the other engulfing them, to restore them back.
He speaks of the Seven Luminous ones who follow their Lord, who confers justice.…
All this is now shown to have been the source and origin of Christian dogmas. That which the Jews had from Egypt, through Moses and other initiates, was confused and distorted enough in later days; and that which the Church got from both, is still more misinterpreted. [In case you missed it, Blavatsky just said that the Osiris/Horus/Isis theology was the true origin of Christianity!…]
Yet their system is now proven identical [by this, she means identical to her beloved ideologies drawn from Egyptian theology heralding Osiris as the true god and judge] in this special department of symbology—the key, namely, to the mysteries of astronomy as connected with those of generation and conception [the mystical impregnation through sun-rays alignments we’ve discussed prior]—with those ideas of ancient religions, the theology of which has developed the phallic element [monuments such as the belly of Osiris and the “shaft of Ba’al/Osiris” in Washington, DC]. The Jewish system of sacred measures applied to religious symbols is the same, so far as geometrical and numerical combinations go, as those of Chaldea, Greece, and Egypt, having been adopted by the Jews during the centuries of their slavery and captivity with those nations.[iii]
Her comment about the “Seven Luminous Ones” is a direct reference to the seven stars that Wallace would later speak of and under which the United States would serve following the inauguration of the New World Order and the resurrection of Osiris/Apollo.
Wallace’s words, “Yes, the Chalice is filling,” refer to the teachings of Roerich regarding the “Chalice of Buddha” (sometimes known as “the Blessed One”). This sacred cup was, at least metaphorically, a container of knowledge and enlightenment offered to those who exalted the upcoming messianic savior, the identity of which—when considering Roerich, Blavatsky, Freemasonry, and the context Wallace adhered to—is Osiris/Apollo. When this figure arrives, Roerich taught, the chalice would be filled. Wallace’s comment exposes how close he believed this day was.
But let us not forget that FDR was no stranger to this mysticism, and he, too, had an appreciation for the wisdom Roerich and Blavatsky brought to the world. In American Dreamer: The Life and Times of Henry A. Wallace, authors John C. Culver and John Hyde note:
Roosevelt, perhaps influenced by his mother’s enthusiasm for Eastern art and mysticism, took a personal interest in the Roerichs’ causes. Roosevelt met Roerich at least once, met with Roerich’s associates on several occasions, and between 1934 and 1936 personally corresponded with Helena Roerich several times. “Mr. President,” she wrote in a typical letter, “Your message was transmitted to me. I am happy that your great heart has so beautifully accepted the Message and Your lightbearing mind was free from prejudice.”
Indeed, it was Roosevelt who suggested to Wallace that he read an allegory by Arthur Hopkins called The Glory Road, which served as the basis for the coded language in the guru letters.[iv]
But is it possible that FDR and Wallace were merely playacting all this out of boredom? Did they really believe that a messianic deliverer—one other than Christ—was on his way to earth through modernized portals based upon ancient architecture and symbolism? It seems a little outrageous and sensational, does it not?
Let’s continue sorting the pieces…
Before our current dollar-bill design known as a Federal Reserve Note, we had several other currency notes worth one dollar starting from the Greenback United States Notes during the American Civil War to the Silver Certificate, the back of which had almost no design but the words “ONE DOLLAR” under “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.” It was during FDR’s leadership that the Great Seal was henceforth determined to be added to our most heavily handled and traded paper currency piece. (Almost half of all the government’s cash printing covers the replacement of the worn dollar bill.) The decision to add the Great Seal to the note was made in the mid-1930s, around the time the two mystics FDR and Wallace were exchanging weird inter-office memos and getting caught up in Dear Guru letter scandals.
It’s also interesting that, since then, the $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 bank notes have all been dramatically changed from their original design, but the dollar bill has not been altered since the FDR/Wallace era. This means that every single currency design in circulation through the US Treasury has been updated except the dollar bill (and the nearly obsolete $2 note, which is scarcely seen due to the production hiccup it faced in the 1960s and ’70s and is therefore not considered worthy of updating). Rest assured, this is not a simple oversight. In fact, the citizens of our country have been asking for quite some time now when the dollar bill will receive the makeover the rest of our bills have, but budget orders have been passed to explicitly prevent it. The Atlantic carried the story in an article, “One Is the Loneliest Dollar Bill”:
Why hasn’t George Washington gotten a makeover in 50 years? The vending machine lobby, of course.…
For the last several years, budgets composed by the president [Obama at the time of this article] and Congress have included specific language preventing the Treasury Department from using its funds to redesign the $1 bill.…
The Federal Reserve redesigns currency largely to prevent counterfeiting, and $1 bills are not a frequent target. Would-be criminals are more often lured by larger bills, according to information provided to the Fed by the Secret Service and other law-enforcement agencies.
The vending industry has argued that the costs of redesigning its machines to recognize the new bills would be prohibitive. The National Automatic Merchandising Association estimated in 2008 that 20 million Americans use one of the nation’s 7 million vending machines every work day.
Those concerns were instrumental in the Bush administration’s move to block the $1 bill from a makeover in the early 2000s.[v]
According to this article, it boils down to vending machines and counterfeiting. Actually, the explanation seems quite sound, and there may not be any immediate reason to believe that there’s a big conspiracy behind why the US government doesn’t see the makeover of the one-dollar note a priority.
However, our good friend “Logic” would like to know: If the vending machines require redesign in order to recognize updated currency, how was that not an issue with the $5, $10, and $20 bills when each of them were updated? We know the machines must have been reengineered, because the new notes are readily accepted.
Immediate incoming signal from our friend “Logic” again: If a “would-be criminal” is only interested in counterfeiting the larger bills, thereby deeming the one-dollar note a nonissue for redesign, why would those same criminals even mess with the $5 bills that have now been given a makeover to prevent counterfeits? There is still reason for preventative measures with five dollars, certainly, but by not updating the one-dollar note, the same criminal masterminds who were evidently making a killing by printing fake five-dollar notes (which seems a bit unrealistic in the first place) now simply buy more ink and print fake one-dollar notes. If a fortune can be made by making fake money in five-dollar increments, it can be done in one-dollar increments, or it probably won’t be done at all in smaller bills. So, the counterfeiting explanation has holes.
Plus, there’s an issue of national pride. If there was enough reason to bring all the currency we currently have in production up to a new par in design, isn’t it kind of an eyesore that we wouldn’t do the same thing for our most-handled bank note in the name of patriotic uniformity?
The reasons given in this article for the lack of interest shown in giving the dollar bill a facelift may very well be true, despite the arguments just listed for why those reasons are deficient, but those who approached the subject of the dollar-bill design with understanding of its mystical/alchemical/metaphysical/Freemasonic/”As Above, So Below” symbolism may be tempted, as I am, to ask: Might there be a motive behind why certain government officials and lobbying groups don’t want the dollar bill design to be tampered with? Even calling together a redesign committee means submitting the one-dollar note under the authority and scrutinizing gaze of some who may wish to remove, alter, or at least make a lesser focus of such esoteric insignias.
Wallace’s words, “Yes, the Chalice is filling,” refer to the teachings of Roerich regarding the “Chalice of Buddha” (sometimes known as “the Blessed One”). This sacred cup was, at least metaphorically, a container of knowledge and enlightenment offered to those who exalted the upcoming messianic savior, the identity of which—according to the Bible—is Osiris/Apollo aka The Grey Champion.
Wallace and FDR wouldn’t have allowed it…and my guess is they weren’t alone in that staunch position.
Although Roosevelt would be the one to set in motion the push to place the Great Seal of the United States on the US one-dollar bill, Wallace claimed it was he who first brought the seal’s oracular significance to Roosevelt, believing the symbolism of the emblems carried inference to Roosevelt’s New Deal, and, more important, a Masonic prophecy toward a New World Order. Wallace describes the meeting he had with Roosevelt:
Roosevelt as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal was first struck with the representation of the All-Seeing Eye—a Masonic representation of the Great Architect of the Universe. Next, he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 but that it would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt, like myself, was a 32nd-degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill…and took the matter up with the Secretary of the Treasury [also a Freemason].… He brought it up in a Cabinet meeting and asked James Farley [Postmaster General and a Roman Catholic] if he thought the Catholics would have any objection to the “all-seeing Eye,” which he as a Mason looked on as a Masonic symbol of Deity. Farley said, “No, there would be no objection.”[vi]
Common sense would say that if both the obverse and reverse sides of the Great Seal were to be placed on the back of the one-dollar bill, the obverse (front) of the Seal would go on the left, since that’s the natural direction our eyes wander when first observing or revisiting a meaningful image. However, FDR inverted this natural order, and the reverse side of the Seal appears on the left.
Was this a coincidence? An accident or oversight?
Not exactly. The science behind why the eyes flicker to the left focal piece of an image is steeply complicated and we do not have space here to dig into the whys and wherefores of how it all works. But in America and other English-speaking countries, the human tendency to view from left to right is intensified by the fact that we read literature from left to right in our culture. In fact, this left-to-right fact is so commonly known amidst artists in the States that even some highly paid Hollywood actors/actresses have demanded that they stand only to the right of their costars in front of the cameras during filming so that when the movie is later projected on screen they will be standing on the left and, therefore, will be the focal point of the scene. One example of this is Geoffrey Rush, who played Captain Hector Barbossa in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean series. In an article called “Geoffrey Rush’s Left to Right Theory” from The Daily Star, we read of his demand to have his monkey ever perched on his left shoulder so as not to steal the left-most position in a scene once reversed on screen, followed by the result:
We do spot Geoffrey first and find our eyes wandering back to him. How clever Geoffrey is to come to that conclusion and use it to his advantage. He even requested that when sharing the screen with his “more attractive” cast members, he be standing on the left [the audience’s left, the cast members’ right] as much as possible, especially when it was Kiera Knightly.[vii]
Regardless of who between FDR and Wallace first perceived the seal’s Masonic prophetic significance, surviving records clearly show that it was FDR (and in his own handwriting, no less) who instructed that the obverse side of the seal be placed on the right side of the back of the dollar, and the reverse side of the seal with the pyramid and all-seeing eye be put on the left so that it would be the first thing a person saw when reading the back of the dollar from left to right. Thus, most Americans “were left with the impression that the mysterious pyramid and its heralding of a ‘new order’ were the foremost symbols of the American republic,”[viii] notes Mitch Horowitz in Occult America.
Why that was done and what it has to do with today’s chaos is central to “The Secret Destiny of America” unfolding now—and finally exposed—in what everybody is telling me is my most important work ever, Saboteurs. I trust you have enjoyed and benefitted from this 20-part sneak-peak into what even I consider my most critical work to date. Please keep me and the SkyWatch team in your prayers, and if you agree with our assessment, share Saboteurs with everybody you know… because the time really does appear to be short.

Fast forward 156 years and national division is the worst I have seen in my lifetime. (My reference point is having lived through the ’60s and ’70s.) The difference between then and now is that permanent division has crept into and corroded every segment of our society, culture, government, the military, media, law, the economy, health care, education, race relations, sports, religion and entertainment. Politics has evolved not only into a red-state vs. blue-state minefield, but the two major parties are internally fractured beyond repair – leaving Democrats sparring with their far-left comrades and Republicans divided by those farther to the right. Meanwhile, the prevailing attitude of “you are with us or against us” has resulted in the near-extinction of moderates. Compromise is now considered an evil, almost traitorous act. That leads us to the overused word, “polarization” – a common, polite, acceptable term used to describe the Fractured States of America. (READ MORE)
Commenting on the “deep state” and the occult in the federal government, Lt. Col. (ret.) Robert Maginnis, a Pentagon security and intelligence official and a senior fellow for National Security with the Family Research Council, said he has “personally met people” that identify as “witches” in the government and added that “Washington is the heart of evil in the United States, as well as the world.” During an interview on The Jim Bakker Show, Sept. 29, Maginnis explained that there are essentially three layers operating in the federal government: the politicians and the bureaucats; the lobbyists, special interests, and other groups that seek to influence the politicians; and the demonic or spiritual level that influences the first two layers. Over the years, Lt. Col. (ret.) Maginnis has testified numerous times before Congress and appeared on countless news outlets, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the Fox News Channel. (READ MORE)
We left off in the last entry saying “to direct the forces of the Great Magical Agent to their proper location, one would need to place a design over the receiving end to establish occult connection.” What better design to choose than the “time-honored [pentagram] symbol” Hall spoke of, which “signifies the five properties of the Great Magical Agent”? But wait… We already have that very symbol, stationed in Washington, DC, as a receptacle. And it’s left open on Rhode Island Avenue, just as Hall discussed, for the “footprint of the Devil.”
Let’s see what else Waite has to say about the Great Magical Agent:
This force was known to the ancients; it consists of a universal agent having equilibrium for its supreme law, while its direction depends immediately on the Great Arcanum of transcendent magic. By the direction of this agent we can change the very order of the seasons, produce in the night the phenomena of day, correspond instantaneously from one end of the earth to the other, discern, like Apollonius, what is taking place at the Antipodes, heal or hurt at a distance, and endow human speech with a universal reverberation and success. The Gnostics represented it as the burning body of the Holy Ghost, and this it was which was adored in the secret rites of the Sabbath or the Temple under the symbolic figure of Baphomet [the pentagram], or of the Androgyne Goat of Mendes [again, the pentagram].
This ambient and all-penetrating fluid, this ray detached from the sun’s splendour, and fixed by the weight of the atmosphere and by the power of central attraction, this body of the Holy Ghost, which we call the Astral Light and the Universal Agent, this electro-magnetic ether, this vital and illuminous caloric, is represented on ancient monuments by the girdle of Isis.[i]
Wait, what? Isis? There are ancient monuments of Isis that represent the power of this Great Magical Agent? The same Isis who impregnated herself upon her dead husband’s corpse through sex magic?
Oh, but that it would stop at only “ancient” monuments and memorials… Regrettably, however, there is more to Isis than her commemoration through archaic Egyptian effigies. I’m sure by now that many readers have heard about the obelisk/dome alignment just outside the Whitehouse… But again, for those of you who are just joining the discussion, let us consider Isis/Osiris/Horus and the magnetic pull of the Great Magical Agent toward our capital’s “footprint of the Devil” pentagram.
The Great Magical Agent as a Means of Impregnation
When touring Washington, DC, or the Vatican, visitors are generally unaware of what it is they’re looking at. Right there, displayed in front of any and all, is an ancient, talismanic diagram revolving around Isis, Osiris, and Horus, and this diagram includes the “magical” functions to bring these deities out from where they currently reside.
Similarly, in St. Peter’s Square, the Vatican’s esteemed courtyard, there is an oval-shaped ground design with lines tracing a cross with an obelisk at the center. The red granite obelisk, which stands forty meters tall, was carved by the Egyptians in the thirteenth century BC. In AD 37—only a few years after the death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ—Roman Emperor Caligula had the structure moved to the central spina of the Circus Gai et Neronis (“Circus of Nero” and frequently now “Circus of Caligula”). In 1586, Pope Sixtus V ordered the engineer and architect Domenico Fontana to once again uproot and transport the obelisk to its current location at the Vatican. The task took over four months, and utilized nine hundred laborers, one hundred forty horses, and seventy winches.
An aerial shot of this attraction shows what is known as a “Sun Wheel,” with the varying lines forming “rays” that travel out from the center, wherein lies the obelisk—the placement of which in relation to the sun design is no accident. And note that although the line patterns are different, there is a similar design around the Washington Monument. It’s clearly a sun-shaped layout, but instead of that “power-going-out” style, it has a “power-going-in” archetypal eclipse or lens-flare style. Due to the intentional similarity of these structured arrangements, the US has been referred to as the “Mirror Vatican.” Our forefathers initially named our capital city “Rome.”

COMING IN ONE WEEK! TOM HORN’S MOST IMPORTANT WORK EVER!
The word “obelisk,” when researched, typically leads to dead ends, save for a description of what it looks like and how it’s built. In fact, it wasn’t until the early 1900s that the symbolism behind the obelisk was more accessible to the modern, public world thanks to the exposure by the Encyclopedia Americana Corporation (and others). According to their findings (written in 1919):
The Obelisk represents the Sun. The ancient Egyptians were sun-worshippers: they regarded the great luminary as the creator of the universe, the maker of all gods above and below, and even as the author of himself. The sun as Ra, the great god of the Egyptians, was represented upon monuments by the solar disc. In time several other names and attributes were applied to him. The rising sun was called Har-em-khu, “Horus on the horizon.” During his daily course he was Ra, “the life-giver,” representing day, light, etc. The setting sun, the symbol of night, darkness, and death, was worshipped as Tum or Temu. When the number of deities in the Egyptian pantheon multiplied, Ra appeared upon the monuments and in the papyri under different forms and names, and is represented alike by animate and inanimate objects. The two most striking and characteristic monuments which represented him on earth were the obelisk and the pyramid. The obelisk, symbolical of light and life, represented his daily course; the pyramid, symbolical of darkness and death, the setting sun.
Ra was praised as “the Double Obelisk” and the “Double Sphinx” deity…. The double sphinx is the symbol of his early rising, and is called Har-em-khu, and according to the “Book of Dead” (q.v.) is the symbol of resurrection. The obelisk is the technical figure of one ray or pencil of light emanating from the sun.
The material chosen for the obelisk was generally red granite, or syenite—a few, however, being of hard sandstone. The former was procured from the granite quarries at Syene (the modern Assouan). Red granite, some Egyptologists think, was chosen for two reasons: First, as being the most durable material, fitly representing the eternal sun. Secondly, on account of its red hue, suggesting the color of the solar disc at his rising and setting.
There were many obelisks throughout Egypt, but An, the city of the Sun (Heb., On; Greek, Heliopolis, the Beth-shemcsh of the Bible), was the centre of sun worship and undoubtedly contained several obelisks [including the one now standing in the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Square].[ii]
In addition to the obelisk’s association with being at the center of sun worship is the direct correlation of its shape to that of the male reproductive organ. The origin of the word “obelisk,” as far back as most etymology dictionaries can trace, is the Greek obelischos, “small spit, obelisk, leg of a compass,” which is diminutive of obelos, “pointed pillar, needle.”[iii] This explanation, however, is limited by a modernized description of its shape alone, and only dates back to (at the very earliest) the first Greeks circa 1900–1600 BC. The Greeks who assigned the sound of o-bel-isk to their developing language would have had a reason to name this pillar by the meaning the early inhabitants of that culture had assigned to it.
It is a well-known fact that “the original Egyptian obelisks were quite seriously conceived as phalli.”[iv] In fact, occult researcher/writer Charles Berger takes it one step further when he states, “All pillars or columns [in ancient cultures] originally had a phallic significance, and were therefore considered sacred.”[v]
For some, the following explanation of etymology will be obvious, but I have observed in my experience that many readers don’t truly consider etymology, and many others don’t even know what it is. For this reason, I will explain the process.
Etymology is the study of how a word was originally formed. The word “Internet,” as one example, is a modern word. There is no ancient word belonging to what we today know as the World Wide Web because it didn’t exist in the ancient world. When we say “Internet,” people know we are describing “a vast computer network linking smaller computer networks worldwide…[through the use of] the same set of communications protocols,”[vi] or more simply, that thing we log on to over the computer at night to check e-mail. So, when we say “Internet,” everyone knows what we’re describing and what the word means in the same way many know that an obelisk is a “pointed pillar.” However, the word “Internet” is a compound word made up of: 1) the prefix “inter-,” meaning “‘between,’ ‘among,’ ‘in the midst of,’ ‘mutually,’ ‘reciprocally,’ ‘together,’ [and] ‘during,’”[vii] and 2) “net(work),” meaning “a netlike combination of filaments, lines, veins, passages, or the like.”[viii] Our culture has taken one prefix that means mutual, active cooperation between two or more sources and combined it with a word that describes a linking-up of pathways. This is how etymology works.
Fortunately, “Internet” is such a young word that we have no problem locating the etymological origins of it; unfortunately, “obelisk” is such an ancient word that many have a hard time locating the etymological origins of it. By the time “Internet” was a word, we had established worldwide communication, so the word is the same in many foreign languages, despite slight variations of accent marks, dialect, pronunciation, and so on, and generally everyone is capable of understanding the prefix “inter-” alongside the noun “net” because they are words our modern world is familiar with. When “obelisk” was formed as a word, there was limited communication between one region and another, so one has to look back to that one specific region of the earliest of languages to figure out what “o” and “bel” and “isk” would mean to them when put together.
Herodotus, the Greek traveler, is largely attributed as the writer who named the object as he documented the cultures he visited and the structures he observed. As such, he would have had the opportunity to look up at an edifice and call it by what it meant to the people of those lands but within his own language. In Greek, o is a prefix that frequently associates with “seed,” bel means “lord” or “master,” and isk is a suffix meaning “small.” So the story goes that Herodotus was wandering about the civilizations of the ancient world, had prior familiarity with the concept that the structure was phallic to the original Egyptian carvers, and called it, essentially, “a smaller representation of the master’s.” If the o did mean to Herodotus (if he is, in fact, the coiner of the word) what it meant in other words with o as a prefix associating with “seed,” then we arrive at: “a smaller representation of the master’s seed [and by extension, his male reproductive organ].”
Which “master” would this refer to? That’s where we get into the simpler etymology of the word bel to the first Greeks. “Belzebub” is Old English, based on Greek, which came from the original Hebrew for the Philistine god worshipped at Ekron, “ba’al-z’bub” (Hebrew; 2 Kings 1:2) and the Babylonian “sun god” or Baal, the “lord of the flies” when used by itself. Today, Christians have heard the name “Baalzebub” (more often “Beelzebub”) and hear it as another name for Satan, but they very rarely understand that, to the ancients, “Baal” was a prefix/title the Hebrews assigned to the foreign little-g “gods” that were worshipped by neighboring territories. (Consider as examples Baal-berith, who was the “the covenant lord” of the Shechemites and Baal-peor, who was the “lord of the opening” over the Moabites and Midianites.) This renders our previous conclusion to read “a smaller representation of Baal’s seed,” or, more truncated, “the shaft of Baal.”
From Cathy Burns’ Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, we read:
The obelisk is a long pointed four-sided shaft, the uppermost portion of which forms a pyramid. The word “obelisk” literally means “Baal’s Shaft” or Baal’s organ of reproduction. This should be especially shocking when we realize that we have a gigantic obelisk in our nation’s capital known as the Washington Monument.[ix]
(To remind the reader of at least one thing Baal meant to the Egyptians, as well as to earlier chapters in this book, where cannibalism was connected to the arrival of giants and/or those cultures that worshipped the demon gods of the giants that migrated across the ancient world including the Americas: Cahna-Bal means “priest of Baal.” It is from this that we derive the English word “cannibal,” a person who consumes the flesh and blood of another human, based on the same rituals the priests of Baal carried out in honor of their god. Baal was highly associated with cannibalism in Jeremiah 19. Note that through the Roman Catholic doctrine of the Eucharist, it is believed that consumption of bread and wine at communion is to partake of the actual, literal flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. I direct no personal attack upon those who are sincerely visiting the Lord’s Table to draw closer to Him within the Catholic faith. However, many reputable Christian scholars have pointed out that the Catholic Eucharist is a reenactment of the ritualistic flesh-eating by the Baal priests, and I doubt many sincere Catholics are aware of this.)
So far, we have the Sun Wheel at the Vatican and the “eclipse” or “lens flare” sun pattern at the Washington Monument to signify sun worship—both with a structure that meant “Baal’s phallus” at the center. Now let’s consider the shape and location of the domes.
Ancient pagan religions viewed an altar as symbolic of the female body. The Egyptian and Babylonian temples were built with strategic placement so that the shrine and the entrance of the temple faced in the same direction of the sun’s rising in summer. On one day per year, the sun would hover directly above the erect obelisk (“charging it,” so to speak), and as the sun went down, the shadow of the obelisk stretched along the courtyard and into the entrance of the temple and forward into the “dome.” If the place of worship was designed as symbolic of the female body, and the dome is built in the shape of a pregnant belly, then it doesn’t take rocket science to see that this was a representative “impregnating” of Baal’s seed directly into the temple of the people.
The primeval concept, then, was designed in antiquity for the express purpose of regeneration, resurrection, and apotheosis, for deity incarnation from the underworld to earth’s surface through union of the respective figures—the dome (ancient structural representation of the womb of Isis) and the obelisk (ancient representation of the erect male phallus of Baal—and Osiris—which we will discuss shortly).
The question should then be asked: Why do the world’s most powerful government on earth (the US) and the world’s most politically influential Church on earth (with headquarters at the Vatican) have these symbolic impregnation schematics built upon their ground, and what are they expecting this to accomplish?
Digging a little deeper into the theology behind all of this, one should remember that both the apostle Paul’s writings and the book of Revelation pointed to the eschatological marriage between the political and religious authorities (the Antichrist and the False Prophet) at the return of Osiris/Apollo.
According to the official building records of both locations, the dome/obelisk design was adapted from the Roman Pantheon, which was the circular, domed rotunda “dedicated to all gods,” and directed by Thomas Jefferson. The US Capitol building is also historically based on pagan Masonic temple themes. Jefferson wrote a letter to the architect behind the project, Benjamin LaTrobe, referring to the design as “the first temple dedicated to…embellishing with Athenian taste the course of a nation looking far beyond the range of Athenian destinies.”[x] The “Athenian” empire was first known as “Osiria,” the kingdom of Osiris. In 1833, Massachusetts Representative Rufus Choate agreed with Jefferson’s esoteric affiliation, writing, “We have built no national temples but the Capitol.”[xi] William Henry and Mark Gray, in their book, Freedom’s Gate: Lost Symbols in the U.S. Capitol, add that, “The U.S. Capitol has numerous architectural and other features that unquestionably identify it with ancient temples.”[xii] After listing various features to make their case that the US Capitol building is a “religious temple”—including housing the image of a deified being, heavenly beings, gods, symbols, inscriptions, sacred geometry, columns, prayers, and orientation to the sun—they conclude:
The designers of the city of Washington DC oriented it to the Sun—especially the rising Sun on June 21 and December 21. The measurements for this orientation were made from the location of the center of the Dome of the U.S. Capitol, rendering it a “solar temple.” Its alignment and encoded numerology point to the Sun as well as the stars. A golden circle on the Rotunda story and a white star in the Crypt marks this spot.… It is clear that the builders viewed the Capitol as America’s sole temple: a solemn…Solar Temple to be exact.[xiii]
Prophetic and supernatural alchemy. Again, this notion sounds sensational. However, the rabbit trail of proofs continues. Inasmuch as the obelisk was seen as the “shaft of Baal,” it was also the “shaft of Osiris.”
The legendary ritual for reincarnating Osiris (which, as we have discussed, is the ritual performed by Freemasons at each Master Mason ceremony) formed the core of Egyptian cosmology and was fantastically venerated on the most imposing scale throughout all of Egypt by towering obelisks (representing the phallus of Osiris) and domes (representing the pregnant belly of Isis) including at Karnak where the upright obelisks were “vitalized” or “stimulated” from the energy of the masturbatory sun-god Ra (mentioned prior) shining down upon them.
There is historical evidence that this elaborate myth and its rituals may have been based originally on real characters and events. We’ll get into that and why it is very important in the next entry…
