The Secret History of America The Greatest Conspiracy On Earth

     This May Be The Most 
 You Ever Read In Your Life!
     Do you believe in a GRAND CONSPIRACY ? Do you believe Oswald acted alone ? Do you believe that government is corrupt ? If so, then to what DEGREE ? That may depend on how willing you are to open your eyes and mind to SEE. Why is it that the more things change, the more they stay the same ? Why doesn't society ever seem to grow up ? Most people grow up thinking that the world is very big and we believe the world exists the way it does today because this is the direction humanity has taken and chosen.
    The road that we are taking as a nation in America and as a human race on the planet Earth is being paved for us in advance and sold to us for a profit.
     Many people talk about conspiracies such as WATERGATE, IRAN-CONTRA, THE S & L (Savings and Loan) SCANDAL, THE FEDERAL RESERVE, OCTOBER SURPRISE, KENNEDY, THE FREEMASONS, THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS and THE TRILATERAL COMMISSION, and even GREY ALIENS, but very few people know the real facts enough to explain them because they are not researched themselves.  As information comes down the pipeline it becomes distorted and confused because most of the people passing along the information do not know the entire story, they have not researched much information themselves, and  they tend to be biased as well.  (They tend to have an angle in the information they put out, usually because they have an ulterior motive. )  I can only state from research of seven years, WHAT I BELIEVE to be the TRUTH based on mostly HARD FACTS.
     For AT LEAST five- to ten thousand years, mankind has been aware of MORE scientific and spiritual facts than we are currently aware of today as a great society and nation.  The libraries of Alexandria, which held the collection of the world's greatest knowledge, existed in Egypt thousands of years ago.  The Essenes were just one secret sect of Gnostics (Knowledge Holders) that existed around two thousand years ago.  Since the earliest times of Pagan groups and Nature religions, the SUN has been considered a SYMBOL for LIFE.  The Ancients believed that when the SUN gave off it's energy, it was giving IT'S life for US.  They believed that the SUN of GOD, the LIGHT of the WORLD is ALL SALVATION because He has RISEN.  He is therefore our ETERNAL SAVIOR.  There has always been a struggle between LIGHT and DARK forces in the world.  When the SUN goes down and it becomes DARK, we cannot SEE.  We naturally fear what we do not know and since we cannot SEE in the DARK, we do not know what's there and we fear.  When the SUN would SET (Satan), it would get DARK.  But when the SUN was on the HORIZON (Horus, translates to Jesus), it would be called THE SAVIOR.  This formed the basis for early Christianity.
     The Essenes, as well as other secret societies around the times were PRIESTHOODS, so the early CHURCH was an established KNOWLEDGE CENTER with IDEAS ENCODED SYMBOLICALLY into religious text.  After time, symbols lose their meaning except to those whom are INITIATED.  Essentially, they held knowledge of ARCHETYPAL ENERGIES that bond or link Spirit to matter.  These energies are expressed in mathematics and Greek Gematria called SACRED GEOMETRY.  The word OCCULT means HIDDEN.  They took the knowledge, hid it, and made it appear to be EVIL, so that they would know it, we wouldn't, and they could then control us a lot easier.  This allowed an early guild of bricklayers, or MASONS, to be established, making it possible to build great pyramids, etc.  Now, if everybody knew how to build a pyramid, then not only would the Pharaoh's tomb be no greater than Joe neighbor's cottage, but the Masons would also lose a lot of money building great castles and churches throughout Europe.  This was the basis for early CAPITALISM, but we will discuss this later.
     SACRED MUSHROOM ingesting and CANNABIS-smoking shamans are tribe spirit leaders in a sense and they practice inducing a state of consciousness in warrior tribesmen to temporarily replace their consciousness with animal consciousness to perform certain tasks or learn spiritual lessons or principles.  There were special groups of assassin cults that were trained in earlier times using substances like hashish and they were called "Hashishans" or "Assassins".  Although these two practices are not identical, they are similar and related.  While the first example may be considered early natural mind control in the sense of learning to control your own mind, the second example could be considered manipulative mind control in the sense that the participants were trained under hallucinogens to kill for God or "Allah".
     The Assassins, as well as a society called The Order of Lady of Sion appeared at the same time around 1090 AD.  Out of The Order of Lady of Sion came Notre Dame de Sion and five out of nine of the founders of the KNIGHTS TEMPLAR came from this order.  The Templars and Assassins had interlocking affairs and philosophies.  They also had ongoing fights as well as commercial dealings.  The Templars pronounced vows to poverty and in the meantime amassed great fortunes for the church (really themselves), and were responsible for financing the Crusades and other bloody religious wars.  They were also some of the first to set up banks in Jerusalem.  These were Temple Banks which occasionally were raided for their gold.  This forced the Templars to develop branch banking, or, putting your money in several places so it doesn't all get taken at once.  This is where the idea of a central bank and it's local branches comes from, which became the model for banking in Europe and America.  The Knights Templar became more popular when they were exposed in the fourteenth century and banished by the king.  Jacques de Moley was burned at the stake for being a homosexual and a heretic.  A portion of the Templar's wealth was seized by the king and handed over to their sister society, called the Knights Hospitalers, who were a branch of the Templars responsible for medical facilities in the kingdom.  There is evidence to suggest that the Templars may have carried themselves on as the Rosicrucians for the next couple of centuries. This really doesn't matter too much, though, because all of these orders or secret societies are offshoots of other ones.  They are all Masonic in nature because of the nature of the information which they possess.
     The same secret societies and old European bloodline families are in control of the world today.  To better understand what they do, we need to look at their philosophies and ideas.  One motto of theirs is "Ordo ab Chao" or "order out or chaos".  First they create CHAOS, then they propose the solution, ORDER, secretly from behind the scenes to control a given situation.  There are different areas of Freemasonry and it is all a hierarchy of power.  Occasionally, Masonic groups will work against each other in the public forum through the agencies which they control, but they may be united behind the scenes.  You will see examples of what I mean very soon.
     The first Masonic lodges by that name appeared in England in the 1600's and within a century they were spread throughout most of Europe, including Germany and France and the colonies of early America.  One of the purposes they served was as a forum for the elite individuals to meet and discuss their political and social views without fear of religious persecution.  Remember, just a couple of centuries earlier under Rome in the Dark Ages, they would kill you if you didn't believe that the moon was made of green cheese.  In Rome, they realized that they could not rule the world by themselves and that they would need a consensus of nations or a United Kingdom and United Nations.  The symbol for Fascism is a bundle of sticks wrapped together with a hatchet or an axe tied to it.

It represents a world consensus of power or AXIS POWER.  It appears on the U. S. Senate flag today and on the back of the American mercury dime from 1916 to 1945.  While there were several enlightened societies around calling themselves illuminated, it was on May 1, 1776 that Professor Adam Weishaupt put together a secret society called The "ILLUMINATI".  It's sole purpose secretly was to control the world.  Weishaupt was a genius of a particular sort as far as scheming and manipulation are concerned.  He was a respected teacher at the University of Ingolstadt at the time and had many connections in education.  He became a Mason but was also a Jesuit priest.  He learned as much as he could and decided to put his own secret society together.  He used a process of initiation and power dissemination among ranks similar to the structure of a pyramid, where one sole individual or group at the top know what's going on but no one else really does, they only know a little until they succeed up the ranks and learn only a little more.  In the meantime, they don't know who is watching them or above them keeping them in check.

In the highest circles of the order they propose to control the world through a One-world government, which they stated they could do by converting existing Masons to concepts of Illuminism.  Weishaupt told them about the Utopia that could be established on Earth if everyone who KNEW would secretly work together to bring about this plan.  Being free-thinkers and atheists to begin with, they proposed abolishing religion, government, orders of class, right to own property, or even raise your own children; and they believed that the ENDS justified the MEANS, meaning that whatever it takes to accomplish this task should be done WITHOUT HESITATION.  Within two years they had over 3000 members and many established lodges.  Within several years they were exposed and banished from Bavaria.  The documents were recovered and displayed in the British museum where they exist today.  This is an important historical fact that has been severely covered up in America.  They continued to exist, however, in the form of the German Union and scattered Reading Societies.  Through their combined fortunes, the members of the Illuminati gained control over the literary societies and printing press.  They circulated printed papers showing falsities of religion and abuses of government and promoted a general state of desperation throughout society, all the while blaming it on religion and government.  They sought to promote ANARCHY and REVOLUTION, whereby they would strip the monarchy (king) of power using the classes (people) as a lever to ultimately bring power back into their own hands, all the while creating new forms of government which would be puppets they could secretly control from behind the scenes.

In Germany, the lodges which preceded the Illuminati were the Lodge Theodore and the Lodge of Strict Observance.  In France they were known as the GRAND ORIENT TEMPLE MASONS.  Their motto was "LIBERTY, EQUALITY, FRATERNITY".  In 1789, they beheaded the King and Queen of France and orchestrated what was historically known as the French Revolution.  This was only the first of several revolutions to come.  Weishaupt had succeeded in grabbing the existing reigns of power in both Europe and America, entwining them together using new philosophical concepts, and tightening all of the existing slack.
     In 1797, a book appeared in Europe by John Robison called "Proofs of A Conspiracy against all of the Religions and Governments of Europe, Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Freemasons, Illuminati and Reading Societies".  Then in 1799, written in another country and in another language, Abbe Augustine Barruel published his four-volume study entitled "Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism".  Then in 1826, William Morgan, an American Freemason who had written a book entitled "Illustrations of Freemasonry", was abducted and drowned in Lake Ontario.  Because of the existence of these books, as well as the murder scandal, there was a nationwide furor resulting in the creation of an Anti-Masonic political party in 1829.  After this there was a temporary drop in membership in the lodges, but their control over the press soon caused the anger to diminish.
     There is what is called the "Colombian" faction of the Illuminati which came over to America early on.  The documents that were recovered in Germany showed that the symbol for the Illuminati society was the PYRAMID and the EYE IN THE CAPSTONE as shown on the back of the ONE-DOLLAR BILL.  The symbol for Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) is the ALL-SEEING EYE.  The U. S. is located in the District of Columbia.  There is Columbia University, and the Columbia space shuttle.
     The Americas have been called the New World since Columbus, however, Columbus did not come here first.  There had already been a "New England Charter" and a colony established twenty years before he arrived.  In America in the east, we have the area of NEW ENGLAND, where the first colonies were established.  The eventual American Revolution wasn't actually a real revolution.  The Founding Fathers (Masons), did not go to war with their parents, the monarchy of England.  There are many prominent American Presidents who are related to strong European bloodlines and great wealth.  When the YORK Rite Masons of York, England, came over here, they settled on the East coast and declared it NEW YORK.   Then they went to work to build the "Empire State".  In New York sits the Statue of "LIBERTY", given to us by FRANCE, holding up the Masonic torch of ENLIGHTENMENT.  The highest degrees of Freemasonry are the 32nd and 33rd degree.
     On the back of the dollar bill, on the Great Seal of the U. S. , there are 32 feathers on the right wing of the eagle and 33 on the left.  Underneath the pyramid, the Latin term "Novus Ordo Seclorum" means "New World Order".  It has appeared on the dollar bill since 1933.
     Karl Marx and Frederick Engels were students of Weishaupt and Illuminism.  The 10 platforms that make up COMMUNISM are identical to the goals of the ILLUMINATI.  The Communist Manifesto appeared in 1848 and Communism formed itself as a solid revolutionary movement in Russia in the early 1900's, in the form of the Bolshevik Revolution.
     One particular group of families made up of the Russell's and the Piertpont's founded several scholastic institutions, two of which were Yale and Princeton.  Rev. James Piertpont and Rev. Nodiah Russell CO-founded Yale in 1701.  In 1832, Gen. William Huntington Russell and Alfonso Taft, grandfather of William Howard Taft, former President of the U.S., founded a secret society at Yale called SKULL AND BONES, or "The Brotherhood of Death".  Gen. Huntington's brother-in-law, Samuel Russell, founded "Russell and Co.",  the world's largest opium smuggling syndicate at the time.  This provided them with a huge fortune in the millions.  The founders and later influential graduates of Skull and Bones studied philosophy and other subjects in Germany where many prominent "Illuminated" teachers were working.  Probably the most influential family in this power circle throughout the last century has been the Harriman family.   Edward H. Harriman amassed over $60 million in the late 1800's in a swift stock deal involving Union Pacific Railroad and Kuhn Loeb.  (1904 Northern Securities case)  William Averall Harriman, his son, graduated Yale in the Skull and Bones Fraternity in 1913.  Averall Harriman controlled Harriman and Co. which owns Brown Bros. and Harriman, the world's largest private investment bank.  Prescott Bush, George Bush's father was initiated and graduated in 1917.  Prescott Bush as well as some other Skull and Bones Graduates were directors of the bank.  These banks as well as Guaranty Trust and Union Banking Corp, all of which were controlled by Skull and Bones, were the most influential entities in building up the Soviet Union from the early times of the Bolshevik Revolution in the early 1900's, through contracts to improve mining of raw materials and rebuilding of the RR transportation infrastructure.  These same banks were also directly responsible for financing Hitler's rise to power and build up of Nazi- Socialism through contacts and subsidiary banks in Germany.
      The PURPOSE for the build up of World Wars was to create a NEED for PEACE so that a UNITED NATIONS may be needed and then created as a SOLUTION for establishing peace between nations.  A WORLD body of GOVERNMENT with a WORLD COURT and a WORLD POLICE to keep nations in place and to concentrate power into a few people's hands.  Who's hands?  William Howard Taft, Skull and Bones graduate of 1878, helped found the American Society for the Judicial Settlement of International Disputes in 1920.  This soon became the League to Enforce the Peace, then the League of Nations and then finally The United Nations.  If you look at things from a historical perspective, the U.N. today has implemented or is in the process of implementing all the planks of Adam Weishaupt's Manifesto.  When George Bush took us to war in the Persian Gulf, he stated boldly that he didn't need the approval of Congress anymore to declare war because he had a U.N. Mandate.  We have sacrificed a large part of our U.S. sovereignty.  The U.N. has recently passed a Declaration of Children's Right's.  It is now a RIGHT of the child to receive vaccinations, which do more harm than good, and a parent doesn't have the right to interfere.  Parents who interfere with the rights of a child or abuse a child or are accused of abuse can have their children taken by the state.  If you are seen spanking a child more than two or three times, the child abuse police will be unleashed against you.  This amounts to nothing more than a giant power transfer, from US to THEM.  The only way they can do this is by tricking us into thinking that we are so irresponsible that we cannot manage our own affairs and lives and that the state is better suited to raise our children.  If you still like the U.N. then wait until you get hit with the new U.N. TAX that is coming.
     This brings us to the World Bank, the IMF (International Monetary Fund), both creations of the U.N., and banking in general.  In Switzerland there is a big building that is divided into 3 parts.  If you look at it from above it looks like a peace symbol or Rune.  This is the headquarters of the United Nations and the World Bank, the 3rd part is the World headquarters of Freemasonry.  It's so convenient they can go back and forth between coffee breaks.  In Brussels, there is a computer called "The Beast" which stores the names and information of every person in the world and that was created years ago.  By now, it probably orbits the planet.  THE U.S. IS A CORPORATION located in the DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA and each CITIZEN IS A FRANCHISE OF THE U.S.  IDENTIFIED BY A SOCIAL SECURITY #.
     One of the main influences of British Masonry comes to America in the area of Banking. Cecil
Rhodes made his fortune from diamond mines in South Africa. Millions and millions of dollars were secured and put into a trust in his will to be used to finance the creation of secret societies for the furtherance of Anglo-Saxon rulership in the New World Order and the eventual recapture of the U.S.
for England through the creation of a central bank in America. Cecil Rhodes formed what is called the "Rhodes Scholarship" at Oxford. There is also the Round Table in England put together by Alfred Milner. Bill Clinton is a Rhodes Scholar as well as other things. In Europe, at least at the time, the Rothschilds were the leading banking clan. Paul Warburg, an agent for the Rothschilds as well as several members of Skull & Bones were instrumental in setting up the Federal Reserve Central Banking system in America in 1913. President Andrew Jackson had stated that the central bankers were a den of vipers and thieves and he intended to drive them out of America in earlier times. He also
stated that if the American people understood the rank injustice of our banking system, there would be a revolution by morning. President Thomas Jefferson stated "If the Americanpeople ever allow the private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered". Abraham Lincoln took action against the central bank in his time and he was killed for it.
     President Garfield was shot and killed shortly after declaring that whoever controls the supply of currency would control the business and activities of all people. Baron Nathan Mayer de Rothschild once said, "Let me issue and control a nations money and I care not who writes the laws".
     The measure of a nations wealth is the sum total of it's goods, services, natural resources and private wealth. In early America, private wealth consisted mostly of gold or silver. This is a great monetary standard because it has inherent value. For a long time, gold was worth $20.00 an ounce.
A One-Ounce gold coin was a $20.00 piece. Our grandfathers and great grandfathers found it a hassle to carry these around during large transactions due to heavy weight and frequent robbery, so out of the kindness of their hearts, the bankers would allow people to leave their gold and silver on deposit, while the bank would issue a gold or silver certificate, a piece of paper that was as good as gold. It said on the bill, "Pay to bearer upon demand in gold or silver. So after the bankers started to issue these notes they saw after a while that the people were not using the gold as much and coming back to withdraw it and that they could issue and loan more notes than they had gold to back it up. This is the true source of inflation.  A short time later they replaced the gold and silver certificates with Federal reserve notes which are worthless.  Without the gold and silver, the real valuables, America was essentially bankrupt.  The Federal Reserve is a private corporation. When Federal Reserve notes are printed they are loaned to the U.S. Treasury or the people.  Notes that cost 2 cents each are printed by the Fed and loaned to the U.S. government at face value plus 8 1/2% interest compounded.  The interest is collected each year by the IRS (Repo Man), also a private corporation controlled by the Federal Reserve.  With a federal deficit of 4 trillion 8 hundred billion dollars so far, the interest is in the neighborhood of $200 Billion dollars, which is drained from the economy each year in the form of income taxes.  The words "Federal Reserve Note" first appeared on our paper currency in 1933.
      It is common sense that if you are borrowing money from someone and you have to pay interest then where will the money come from to pay the interest ? If you have to borrow it then that creates more interest.  Obviously, in this situation, there is no way out.  However, coins are minted by the U.S. treasury and they are worth their face value as currency.  There is a clause written into the agreement that provides us with the option to buy back the right to issue our own currency.  The solution to the problem of the National Debt is to coin a 4 trillion dollar coin and use it to pay off the Federal Reserve.  It would have to be accepted and it could even be made out of copper nickel clad.  In 1963, President Kennedy passed an Executive Order calling for the printing of $450 Billion dollars in U.S. backed Debt-Free currency.  Shortly after, he was killed and as soon as his successor, Lyndon Johnson took office, the first thing he did was suspend the executive order and the printing of the currency.  If you look hard enough, you can find $2 bills from 1963 that say "U.S. Treasury" at the top instead of "Federal Reserve note". 1964 was the last year silver was used as the standard coin metal and coincidentally Kennedy's face first appeared on the half-dollar.  Now, 23 years later, silver is $5.00 per ounce instead of $1.  If you still don't see how this works, just realize that 23 years later, you now need 5 times as much money (work) to buy the same ounce of silver and 60 years later, after they removed the gold, we have to pay 20 times as much money for the same ounce of gold. ($400.00 / ounce).  The moral of this little story is that we are being ripped off by the biggest "Sleight of Hand" money scam ever devised.  There is a Masonic term for this kind of deception, they call it "Hoodwinked".  We are the sheep and we have had the wool pulled over our eyes.
      It may appear to be a grand conspiracy where you may think that everyone knows what's going on, or you may say that it is impossible for everyone to work together on such a large scale for so long and so secretly, but the truth is that not everybody knows everything.  Some people that are a part of the establishment only know a little and some don't really have a clue, some just follow the money, but most that hold high degrees have a pretty good idea, if not a lot of knowledge about the inner workings of the conspiracy.
      Big name families like the Rockefellers and J.P. Morgan, even in their time, were not the main financial powers in America.  They were highly paid agents, front-men and spokespeople.  Henry Ford resigned from the Ford Foundation citing an inability to maintain control over affairs.  The Rockefeller foundation ties into and controls the American Medical Association and the public educational system through textbook publishing.  The Rockefeller family got started with the help of the Harriman family, the Whitney's (Eli Whitney's family) and Standard Oil of New York (SONY), now Exxon.  They have a lot of influence, even today.
     All of the founding fathers of this nation were Masons as well as almost all of the presidents.  The building of early American colonies as well as the American Revolution would not have been possible if it were not for a very special plant.  The Cannabis / Hemp plant was used throughout the world since the beginning of time for just about everything that mankind needed.  Paper made from hemp was used for books, bibles, maps, and money.  You can produce 4 times as much paper from an acre of hemp as you can from an acre of trees at 1/4 the cost, 1/5 the pollution, it is 10 times stronger and lasts up to 1000 years instead of only 50.  And it can be recycled 4 times as many times as paper from wood pulp.  The Constitution was printed on hemp paper as well as the first 3 drafts of the Declaration of Independence.  Even great sailing ships like the U.S.S. Constitution were made primarily out of hemp.  Hemp is the STRONGEST natural fiber on the planet.  Hemp is 26 times stronger than cotton and 10 times longer lasting.  The first Levi jeans were made out of hemp as well as all of the soldier's clothes for the Revolutionary War.  It requires no chemicals to grow, has very few natural enemies, and grows in the widest variety of climates of any weed or plant.  It is also the FASTEST GROWING plant on the planet, growing 4 times faster than corn. The seeds from the hemp plant provide the highest source of complete vegetable protein of any food source on earth.  Even higher than soybeans.  It has also been re-realized lately that the hemp seed is the highest source of Essential Fatty Acids in the world.  ESSENTIAL, meaning :NECESSARY FOR LIFE, Fatty Acids are necessary for us and beneficial for cleaning the cholesterol out of the arteries naturally.  All oils in the supermarket are bad since they are placed in clear plastic containers and exposed to direct sunlight.  They become as bad as saturated fats, and end up CAUSING cholesterol buildup, leading to heart attacks, etc. Hemp seed oil can even be used as a machine-grade lubricant for engines and other machines replacing petroleum oil from the ground.
      Henry Ford built his Ford Model-T using hemp to line the side panels.  The impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel alone. This would eliminate many vehicular deaths today.  The Model-T was also designed to run on hemp fuel which Henry Ford grew.  This was displayed in Popular Mechanics in Feb. of 1938.  Concentrated extracts of Cannabis from the flowers were the 2nd most used medicines in America for 150 years for over 100 separate medical illnesses.  It is probably the best natural medicine for Glaucoma, stress, and controlling nausea, and works very well for arthritis , asthma, and epilepsy.  It is estimated that Hemp would have at least 50,000 commercial uses if it were legal in America today.
     The reason that Hemp is illegal in America today is because the main families in America (Masons), the Harrimans and Rockefellers (Standard Oil), the Whitneys (Eli Whitney-Cotton Gin), Dupont (Chemicals in wood pulp processing and cotton pesticides), and Hearst (Newspapers, Media) find it more profitable to sell us unnecessary chemicals, unneeded dug-up petroleum oil, immune system destroying pharmaceuticals, and axed up trees cut into real thin slices, all at over-inflated prices and at the expense of our health and living environment. For these companies, the real problem is that one cannot patent a natural plant.  Almost everything produced in America by large corporations is exported for sale on the world markets.  The total value of oil, petrochemicals, and pharmaceutical sales totals hundreds of billions of dollars. However, with the availability of over 50,000 new products and the necessity to manufacture them, America would be a much richer nation if the farmers and the average citizen were allowed to grow this valuable crop.
     Right now, the power is concentrated in the hands of a few rich individuals like George Bush, for example, who's legacy goes something like this :  Graduated Yale in the Skull and Bones fraternity in 1948, went into the Airforce, got shot down and was played up in the press as a war hero, becomes owner of Zapata Off-shore Oil , which controls a large fleet of oil tankers off the coast of Kuwait, becomes director of the CIA, working to introduce cocaine and heroin in large part to America, is made Director of Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals by Dan Quayle's Father (Lilly produces precursor chemicals used in cocaine production), sits on the board of First Interstate Bank, Puralator Shipping, and Texas Gulf (Fertilizers and pesticides to grow the Coca with and then spray on it to wipe some of it out), then becomes Vice-President and Drug Czar (During this time Cocaine influx into the U.S. increased by over 2000 %), declares war on the American people and the Bill of Rights through the militarization of a phony drug war, tricks Saddam Hussein with the help of the leaders of Kuwait, into attacking Iraq (The reason was Zapata Oil's slant drilling from Kuwait into Iraqi territory) so that he could declare war under a U.N. Mandate, strengthen the U.N. and hike up oil prices, then before leaving office, signs into law a secret Telecommunications Bill requiring the switch-over of all Federal and Bank phone lines to Fiber Optic for the purpose of electronic funds transfer as required by law in the year 2000 when cash and checks will be no longer legal.  If that isn't bad enough, he also has brothers and sons that are Skull and Bones members and they do politics as well.  Neil Bush (Silverado Savings and Loan Scam), there is Jeb Bush and there are several other Bush's hiding in the BIG BUSH FAMILY.  It is probably no coincidence that the Harriman and Bush families both have a history in Eugenics or race purification and Genetic Selective Breeding. They will propagate their own young on the planet because they can afford it, while sitting back and deciding which countries can have how many children per family.
     Population control and mind control are the methods used by the new Fascist Roman Capitalistic Empire.  Millions of people die around the world each year from debilitating diseases like cancer, AIDS, Leukemia and now flesh-eating strep and Ebola.  Does the Rockefeller-run American Medical Association (AMA) do everything it can to insure that doctors know the truth about health and do the most to insure the safety of the patient ? NO !
      Let's consider these facts.  Herbs have been around forever, they grow naturally and they have been used for healing for centuries.  Drugs are synthetic chemical reproductions sold by the large pharmaceutical corporations at highly inflated prices.  Doctors receive less than 3 hours of instruction on nutrition, eating right and preventative medicine in their entire 4-6 years of training.
     Luis Pasteur, shortly before he died, stated that he was possibly mistaken about his germ theory.  He said that germs and viruses might be the result of the disease instead of the cause.  The way this could be explained is that the body overloads on toxic build-up and produces symptoms of stress, then necessary bacteria or viruses move in to scavenge the toxins, creating an abundance of these in the system, and leaving a super toxic waste by-product behind, which the body has a difficult time expelling.  Therefore the presence of the virus or high bacteria count is a result of the disease and not the cause.  A couple of very important things to realize when considering this possibility are : 1. A person does not need to be exposed to another individual  to come down with a cold.  People living in small communities with no outside exposure can come down with colds and disease.  2. People with no disease can sleep with people and exchange bodily fluids with people with HIV and not be infected. Considering these facts further weakens the Germ Theory of Disease.  If this information is true, then the introduction of prescription and pharmaceutical drugs would only serve to mask the symptoms of the problem and slowly destroy the immune system since these drugs are highly toxic.
      There have been several cures for cancer and other diseases but these have been viciously suppressed by the establishment and pharmaceutical industry.  Some of these include Raymond Rife and the Rife Microscope, Harry Hoxsey, Cancell, Essiac, and Ozone. The latest and most promising information so far comes from a woman named Dr. Hulda Clark.  Her books and research have just been published this year.  She states that the age-long problem and cause of diseases are parasites, Worms in particular.  There is a worm, an intestinal fluke, which exists in most people throughout their lives. Generally, it is excreted by the body in the younger stages and does not grow into an adult in our bodies.  But, something different happens when substances like Benzene and Propyl Alcohol are abundant in our body.  These toxic chemicals are consumed in the form of carbonated sodas and extracts and they are absorbed into our skin in hair and body care products.  The abundance of propyl Alcohols break down the shells of the eggs allowing them to hatch early.
      The build-up of these toxic substances weakens the immunity of certain organs or areas of the body (Thyroid, Lymph, skin), allowing worms to grow in these areas.  Dr. Clark has diagnosed hundreds of people with both Cancer and AIDS and found that all of them had both the worm present and the weakened immunity from one of these toxic sources.  She was also successful curing all of them with the three herbs that are necessary to kill the worms.  She does claim though that some people that are very close to death may be too far gone from the severe burden of over-toxicity.  We will see how long it takes for the general public to find out about this.  We have already spoken to people in different states that have used her methods successfully.  Even if people do find out about things one way or another, the average person will not even know that people are finding out about something because the media will not televise it and tell people certain things.
     The biggest people in the media are members of the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission, both creations of Skull and Bones and David Rockefeller.  The media is used to promote disinformation and propaganda.  The only way you can think the media doesn't withhold information is if you don't know what is REALLY going on.  Hitler said, in regard to propaganda and thought control, "The bigger the lie, the easier to believe".  Sometimes it can be very difficult to discern the truth and find out what is really going on.  Your heart will tell you one thing and your intellect another and usually we get caught up believing what we want to believe because it's too much trouble to see all the way through.
To one with an open mind, it would seem foolish to assume that we are alone in the universe.  In contrast, to one with a closed mind and a probable lack of spirituality, it would appear that reality is made up only of what we see and feel physically.  There is, at this time, a growing awareness on the planet that perhaps we are not alone.  Millions of people around the world claim to have seen unidentified flying objects, flying disks, bright lights, and fast moving objects that reflect advanced technology, that we, most people claim, could not possess.  Some people claim to have been abducted by GREY ALIENS and underwent childbearing and medical experiments only to have been returned somewhere unconscious with examination scars left behind.  Thousands of cattle mutilations have occurred in remote areas sometimes followed by sightings of flying disks or bright lights and occasionally black helicopters.  There has been a recent movie made about the crash and retrieval of a spaceship as well as bodies of several dead aliens in Roswell, New Mexico and it is suggested that the government might be covering up this entire situation for political or religious reasons.  UFO researchers were a very small group in the 1950's and 60's, but recently in the 1980's and 90's there has been an enormous increase in interest on the subject.
     I was personally first introduced to this information in 1987 through info put out by Bill Cooper a little while before the first printing of "Behold a Pale Horse".  I was very curious about the subject and read everything of quality that I could find.  There were less than 100 half-way decent books in print that you could find at the time.  Today, there are probably over 500.  I read the best books I could find by retired high ranking military officials, channeled material from Seth and The Ashtar Command, I learned about Billy Meier, Barbara Marciniak and the Pleadians material, Bob Lazaar, Area 51 and S-4 Dreamland in Las Vegas, listened to contactees discuss the Draco-Reptilian and Andromeda connection and watched Richard Hoagland bring out the "Face on Mars" info to the U.N. and the public.
     If you take the sum total of the info that exists and put it into perspective, it would appear as though our race may have been seeded here by off-planet intelligences or that we were created as an intergalactic experiment, that huge 8-10 foot tall powerful Reptilian beings live at the core of the Earth, pilot advanced flying craft, read minds and plot to enslave mankind by using grey Zeta-Reticulans, who have no choice but to assist because their race is dying from genetic inbreeding and they need help and have no where else to go, and that they have the government under their control through genetic cloning and electronic implants.  It has even been proposed that members of the government are related to these aliens.  This may sound a little silly, but some people believe it might be true.  The positive side to this double edged sword is that the Pleadians are supposedly here to save us along with another group called the Arcturians.  They are supposedly here to assist us in our higher spiritual development and help us break out of our old 3rd dimensional physical reality into the 4th dimension or multi-dimensional reality.  All we have to do to receive their help is give up nuclear weapons, turn our lives to god and learn to live in peace.  Although these are good ideas they are easier said than done.
     Probably the best book I have read on the subject came to me recently after years of entertaining the idea of this possible reality of Aliens, gov. cover-ups, and so forth, all the while learning about secret societies and other related info.  The book is called "Space Aliens from the Pentagon" by William Lyne.  While the former reality may seem to be a little out of this world, the info presented in this book is a lot more down to Earth.  According to Mr. Lyne, the secret societies in America and abroad have harnessed a naturally occurring "Free Energy" and have possessed and suppressed this secret for at least 80-100 years.  Many people have heard of Albert Einstein and his Theory of Relativity (E=MC2).  Most would consider him a genius although it is known that he was a Grade School dropout.  Around the same time lived a man named Nikola Tesla.  He came to America in the early 1900's as a scientist and inventor.  He was responsible for many great discoveries, but it is not mentioned in history very much.  He was responsible for Radio, Television, Fluorescent and Neon lighting, Helicopters, Lasers, Particle Beams and Alternating Current.  If you haven't heard of him you should at least wonder why.  William Lyne is himself an inventor and scientist.  Mr. Lyne claims that when Tesla came to America, he had under his arm blueprints for possibly the world's first FLYING SAUCER and it flew without the need for external energy.  He intended to present it to the Geneva Convention as a proposed solution for world peace and energy liberation.  He had theories of Magnetism and Anti-gravity as well as other forms of "Free Energy".  The story goes that Einstein was working as a clerk at the Swiss Patent office at the time that Tesla was applying for his patents.  Alternating Current was in the position of putting DC out of business, which meant that Edison and Westinghouse would suffer.  J.P. Morgan, a Skull and Bones Banking Frontman, was financing Westinghouse and attempted to make arrangements to secure Tesla's patents through con deals and contracts.
     He used Einstein's position at the patent office to rip off several of Tesla's patents and then told him outright that since it would be difficult to collect money on this "Free Energy", that it would not be used or promoted in society.  Instead, Einstein's Theory of Relativity would prevail and Tesla's Dynamic Theory of Gravity would be suppressed.  Today, it is impossible to locate some of Tesla's earlier patents.  The Flying Saucer project was then moved out of the country to a secret joint German / American base near the South Pole called "Neu Shwabenland" or New Berlin, which was under the control of the Thule society, a secret society in Germany to which the SS belonged.  Here, the crafts were perfected and outfitted with the latest technology and design.  The Nazis created propaganda back home that Hitler was in touch with a Blond-haired, blue-eyed Aryan race of beings who communicated to him that he was chosen to lead the Germanic people.  There was a resurgence of Occultism in Germany at this time.  Hitler was into the occult and he was a master of propaganda.  Remember, he stated "The bigger the lie, the easier to sell to the public", people believe what they want to believe  After W.W.II, during Operation Paperclip, hundreds of Nazi intelligence officers were secretly brought to America and given positions in the OSS (Office of Strategic Services), the forerunner to the CIA, supposedly to gain information on the Russians, our new enemy.  Along with the Nazis came the flying saucer project.
     The project was brought to New Mexico, where it was worked on further.  Soon there were several sightings by people of mysterious flying objects and bright flying balls of light.  In 1944 and 45, there were newspaper reports about flying balls of light possibly being advanced Nazi aircraft.  They were called FOO-FIGHTERS. Then a couple of years later, in 1947, there was supposedly a flying saucer crash in the desert of Roswell, New Mexico, with advanced technology and even bodies of aliens recovered.  This was reported on the front page of the newspaper and then it was explained away as a weather balloon.  Within a few years science fiction films started coming out like crazy.  (The day the Earth Stood Still-about the threat of war and the necessity to make peace with ourselves and the aliens, and War of the Worlds-H.G. Wells, a British Intelligence Agent).
     There was a time in America in the 1950's, when it was trendy to wear alien antennas on your head or a Hat shaped like a flying saucer. This was the beginning of the first wave of American propaganda.  Then in the 1970's, we had Star Wars, Close Encounters, Hanger 18, and eventually E.T.   T.V. movies like Alien Nation and "V" were shown to us and now Sightings, The X-files, and even Roswell the movie. There is a consistent theme that suggests the government is involved in a super high level cosmic Watergate cover-up.
     William Lyne claims to have seen this entire drama evolve from a simple bungled crash recovery story to the elaborate present day theory mentioned before.  He basically says that this is the biggest "Free Energy Cover-up" scam ever perpetrated against the people of the world. Millions and millions of dollars are poured into an elaborate propaganda complex of Authors, Ph.D.'s, Ret. Military Officials and self proclaimed "Channelers" to distribute books and videos on these ideas.  They fund UFO expos, research groups like MUFON, and UFO magazines.  He even claims that he was offered money by the CIA to write phony scripts about being abducted by grey Zeta-Reticulans.  He claims to have many contacts himself, through his own family and relatives and friends from previous service in the Air Force, who have confirmed this info.  He claims the UFO expos are filled with disinformation agents.
     Here are a couple of things to consider : 1. If you wanted to expose the government or publish books or videos on UFOs or aliens then where do you get the money to do it ?  Who has this kind of money lying around and is willing to invest it in these ventures ?  There is new information appearing that Lawrence Rockefeller has been behind the private financing of  groups to discuss the UFO issue and undoubtedly promote more propaganda and lies.  2. If this is the government's biggest cover-up then how come all of this info is coming out all at once all over the place ?  3. After Bill Lyne presented this info for the first time at the UFO expo in California and was a huge success, why was he asked not to return and told that he would be better suited at the Extraordinary Experiences Expo ?
     There has been some speculation that the government maybe preparing to "inform" the public about the supposed alien presence and possibly even present a staged landing or invasion scenario.  Either way we may soon see, depending on how carefully we are watching.  If this is the kind of technology the government had 50 and 100 years ago, then 166 mhz pentium processors are probably a far cry from REAL present day capabilities.
     One of the symbols for Roman Catholic Freemasonry is the Double Cross.  It may appear on the Pope's headdress or on the advertisement for the American Lung Association or even in the EXXON sign.  This may imply that we've been double-crossed.  Is the Shell gas station symbol really a shell ?  Or is it the SUN rising in the East ?  The Panorama Mall in California uses an almost identical symbol and it is surely not a shell, but the SUNRISE.  The flag of El Salvador  and Nicaragua both are a symbol of the triangle or pyramid with the eye in the peak or capstone as well as the sun rising.  The flag for Germany is the Masonic compass symbol.  Look at the America On-line symbol.  A Current Affair T.V series.  The next time you are driving on the freeway and you see an exit sign with gas station displays that offer you a choice between Citgo or Shell, ask yourself whether you are really looking at a pyramid and a sun rising in the east.
And now, back to the most popular conspiracy question :  Who did kill JFK ?  If you still think it was Lee Harvey Oswald and you believe the lone assassin theory or if you are stuck in a cave somewhere building a wheel that is shaped like a square then consider these important historical facts :  The assassination took place in Dealey Plaza, site of the first Masonic temple in Dallas.  Dallas is located just south of the 33rd degree of latitude.  The 33rd degree is the highest degree one can achieve in Freemasonry.  Shakespeare's MacBeth is a "Killing of the King" drama.  MacBeth, who killed his King in accordance with a witch's plot and was himself later killed, parallels the JFK assassination and the sequence of Oswald being killed by Ruby.  "Mason Road" in Texas, connects to the "Mason No El Bar" and the Texas / New Mexico "Land of Enchantment" border.  This connecting line is on the 32nd degree.
     When the 32nd degree line of latitude is traced west into the "Land of Enchantment", it becomes situated midway between Deming and Columbus.  Slightly to the north of the town of Columbus are the "Tres Hermanas" (Three Sisters) mountains.  The Three Sisters are found approx. 32 miles between Deming and Columbus and are a minute and some seconds south of the 32nd degree line.  When this line is traced further to the west, it passes the ghost town of Shakespeare at a distance south of the town that is roughly equivalent to the distance which the 32nd degree line passes north of the three sisters mountains.  Both Shakespeare and the three sisters relate to MacBeth.  When this 32nd degree line is traced some distance further west, into Arizona, it crosses an old trail which meanders north of a ghost town, which was once the town of Ruby.  The trail itself was called Ruby Road. Ruby Road twists north into the area of 2 mountain peaks known as Kennedy and Johnson Mountains.  The New Orleans CIA (who provided security) station's headquarters were in a Masonic temple.  And last but not least, Mason Lyndon Johnson appointed Mason Earl Warren to investigate Kennedy's death.  33rd degree Mason, Gerald Ford was instrumental in suppressing what little evidence of a conspiratorial nature reached the commission.  Responsible for supplying information to the commission was 33rd degree Mason J. Edgar Hoover and former CIA director and Mason Allen Dulles was responsible for most of his Agency's information to the panel.  There IS NO need to wonder whether there is a conspiracy going on, the fact is AMERICA IS ONE BIG LIVING CONSPIRACY.
          The 2000 year old Reich of the NEW WORLD ORDER is HERE and NOW.  We are about to start 1996.  The more that this sort of information gets out to the public, the faster the crackdown and grab for power becomes.  The government is not as dumb as most people believe, it only appears to be on the surface.  How many more police do we need ?  The Fraternal Order of Police is a Masonic Order.  You will understand this the next time they put you through the 3rd DEGREE, and offer you 3 SQUARE meals a day.  How much more power do we want to give them ? Current Gun Control Legislation is taken almost word for word from gun control laws passed in Nazi Germany under Adolph Hitler.  There have been many Executive Orders and Public Laws passed giving tremendous powers to the president to declare National Emergencies, suspend the Constitution, and round up large groups of people, and the power to use converted and shut down MILITARY BASES AS LABOR BOOT CAMPS ( CONCENTRATION CAMPS), has been handed to the Pentagon.  This will be sold to us as immigration control, drug trafficker punishment and so forth.
     In Europe today, the National I.D. Card (Smartcard) has already been issued.  In Singapore, you are required to carry it by law.  It will soon arrive in America and it will be pushed using Health-Care reform or Immigration Control as a means to sell it to the public.  This card will store all of the necessary information on you and more.
     There was a particular type of wood that magicians used to make their wands from.  It was the wood from the Holly plant.  Hollywood today is where the Mason Magicians of the silver screen wave their hypnotic magic wands over our eyes and fool us with ILLUSIONS.  If you remember the T.V. series "Get Smart", there were  the bad guys called CHAOS and the good guys called  CONTROL. GET SMART .

Illuminati-“Lang” or “Lanz”: Myths about the “Myths”

So, I’m browsing through the results of a keyword-search (targeting blogs) that I had previously saved as an RSS feed in Google Reader - “Illuminati.” Usually the results point to sites that abuse the term as a mere descriptor for an overarching, all-powerful monolithic conspiracy. However, once in a while, I occasionally come across at least an attempt not to knowingly butcher the historical record.
The November 12th post at the English section of is one such example. But as I started reading “The Bavarian Illuminati: several myths revealed,” it became quite clear that the post is, in fact - word for word - an abridged re-posting of “A Bavarian Illuminati Primer.”
Once I got to the part about Lanz and Lang, I knew for sure.
Here’s what Mason Trevor W. McKeown thinks is the myth/truth:
As an example of the mythology that surrounds the history of the Illuminati, note that Barruel claimed that Lanz, an Illuminati courier and apostate priest, was struck by lightning, thus revealing Weishaupt’s papers to the authorities, but this does not appear to be substantiated. This error was widely reprinted and enlarged on by subsequent anti-masons whose lack of research and disdain for historical accuracy has lead them to confuse Johann Jakob Lanz (d.1785), a non-Illuminati secular priest in Erding, and friend of Weishaupt, with Franz Georg Lang, a court advisor in Eichstätt who was active in the Illuminati under the name Tamerlan.
Barruel mistakenly translated “weltpriester”, or secular priest, as apostate priest and subsequent writers such as Webster and Miller have repeated this error. Eckert renamed Weishaupt’s friend as Lanze and had him struck by lightning while carrying dispatches in Silesia. Miller cited Eckert but renamed Lanz as Jacob Lang and placed the lightning strike in Ratisbon. This is a minor detail in the history but it demonstrates the lack of accuracy often displayed by detractors of the Illuminati.
As nobody has challenged him on these assertions - not even a German site who should know better - I’ll reiterate and add additional information to what I had written back in August 2005. Mr. McKeown is guilty of the same thing he accuses others of: “lack of research and disdain for historical accuracy.”

It makes no difference to me what Barruel or Robison had gotten right or wrong (incidentally Barruel was right); all that matters is that, now, we know the truth. First and foremost: it was indeed Johann Jakob Lanz (b. 1735) who was killed beside Weishaupt while riding horseback in Regensburg.
First, let’s identify all the known members of the Illuminati with either a last name of Lang or Lanz.
  • Franz Georg Lang (1752-1790) -Tamerlane-
  • Johann Adam Lang (b. 1762?) -Hugo Grotius/Plotinus-
  • Karl Heinrich Ritter von Lang (1764-1835)
  • Konrad Lang -Diogenes of Apollonia-
  • Lanz -Albert II-
  • Johann Jakob Lanz (1735-July 20, 1785) -Socrates/DuSaint-*
* See Hermann Schüttler, Die Mitglieder des Illuminatenordens 1776-1787/93 (Munich: Ars Una 1991), pp. 91-2; the foremost scholar on the Bavarian Illuminati alive today. His archival studies on the Illuminati, spanning the whole of Europe, culminated in the publication of Die Mitglieder, and includes a staggering 1255 confirmed members.
I’m not even going to get into why the others are not the Lanz/Lang that was struck by lightning - though the first and third are disqualified by their dates of death alone. I’ll merely recount what Dr. Schüttler says about Johann Jakob Lanz (on p. 92): ordained a priest in 1757, studied theology and jurisprudence; a Benefiziat [benefice] in Erding and a resident of Munich. Death by lightning in July 1785 while accompanying Weishaupt in Regensburg.
In fact, Schüttler used to have an extensive site on the Illuminati (now defunct, and which unfortunately hasn’t been cached by the Wayback Machine). For years his site included alphabetical lists of Illuminati members who have their likeness painted/drawn for posterity. Back in late 2005 or early 2006, I did a scrape of his Illuminati members pages. Here, then, is a screenshot of the Johann Jakob Lanz page (including his pic) as it once appeared at Schüttler’s site:
J. J. Lanz (Click for Full view)
Another McKeown error regarding Lanz was the claim that the latter wasn’t a member of the Illuminati! Johann Jakob Lanz was indeed a member of the Illuminati, even subsequently becoming head of the Freising Minerval Church; also a member of the Munich Lodge Theodor zum guten Rat (controlled by the Illuminati) and the co-founder of the Masonic/Illuminati Lodge Augusta zu den drei Kronen in Freising (Schüttler, op. cit., p. 92).
Törring zu Seefeld, Count Anton Clemens von (1725 Munich, Germany – 1812 ib.)
Count Anton Clemens von Törring zu Seefeld (1725 Munich, Germany – 1812 ib.)
This Freising Lodge - outwardly a Masonic one - was a vehicle for the machinations of the Illuminati. The charter was theirs, the Lodge was theirs, and the system (a society within a secret society) was entirely geared toward recruitment into the Order. Augusta zu den drei Kronen was solemnly instituted on August 4th, 1781 by the following FF. of the Illuminati: Count Anton Clemens von Törring zu Seefeld (Ulysses) and Franz Paul Edler von Berger (Cornelius Scipio), delegates from the Munich Lodge Theodor zum guten Rat; in the presence of Imperial Count Joseph Christian von Königsfeld (Augustus/Orion); Karl Eligius, Baron von Strommer (Atticus); Josef Georg von Delling (Pansa/Augustus); Franz Xaver von Kammerloher (Lepidus/Soccurus); Franz von Paula Hoheneicher (Alcibiades); Johann Jakob Lanz; Max Joseph Baron von Frauenberg (Adrian/Trajanus); Count Stanislaus von Taufirchen (Pomponius/Malacrida); Maximillian Kaltner (Allucius); Franz Paul de Dufresne (Maevius); Franz Xaver Ferdinand Josef, Baron von Gumpenberg (Protheus); and Franz Xaver von Hueber (Theocritus). Lanz was the Lodge’s first Orator and the Master of Ceremonies.*
* See Schüttler, op. cit., passim, and René Le Forestier, Les Illuminés de Bavière et la Franc-Maçonnerie Allemande [Paris: 1914], Archè reprint, 2001, pp. 246-7 and n. 5, 394 n. 3. However, even the great Le Forestier calls him “Lang” instead of “Lanz,” though he gets it right that this person was indeed an important Illuminati at the Freising Lodge. Ultimately, the confusion might lie in the fact that both Franz Georg Lang and Johann Jakob Lanz were members of the Lodge Theodor zum guten Rat in Munich; it was from the latter Lodge that the charter for the Freising Lodge was received. Schüttler has done the necessary leg work and not only has two-hundred years of hindsight to draw upon, but new archival material with names, dates of birth, and station, etc. It probably wasn’t even possible to settle the question (Lanz or Lang) until the proper lists from Lodges and archives had become accessible.
The Illuminati Directorate of Freising (=Thebes) had the following structure:
Upper Palatinate (Delta)
Heinrich Karl, Baron Roth von Schröckenstein (Propertius)
Minerval Church Superior
Johann Jakob Lanz
Quaestor and Minerval Church Secretary
Karl Eligius, Baron von Strommer*
* Schüttler, op. cit., p. 231.

Divine Retribution

In 1785 Adam Weishaupt was on the run. He had escaped Ingolstadt just in time. The Bavarian Elector, Duke Karl Theodor had issued his second edict against secret societies in general and the Illuminati and Freemasonry in particular. Weishaupt had actually left two weeks before the March 2nd edict, and was safe for the time being in the free imperial city of Regensburg.
On July 20th, 1785 Weishaupt and his friend Lanz were riding on horseback near the gates of Regensburg. Lanz was struck dead by lightning while Weishaupt, at his side, remained unscathed. It is one of those episodes in history that at first glance is immediately suspect. But it is true. For all to bear witness, the Lord - in spectacular fashion - had revealed his righteous indignation. You see Lanz was a priest who’d willingly followed the Illuminati. He knew full well the anti-religious sentiments of his brethren, and worse: as Minerval Superior he proselytized, and personally indoctrinated men into a thoroughly ungodly system.* To a jealous God - a befitting end, indeed.
* For example, in one instance, a high-ranking member of the Illuminati, Baron de Bassus confessed that during a Minerval gathering in Munich (in 1778), he had personally witnessed a French abbot read to the assembly works of an extreme nature; intensely attacking Christianity and replete with atheism and vitriol toward God and his “imposters,” “Moses, Jesus and Mohamed” (Le Forestier, op. cit., p. 90 and n. 1).

Lanz was traveling to Silesia on a scouting mission for the Order and it makes sense that he had stopped in Regensburg to consult with Weishaupt. Regensburg is directly on the North-easterly route.
Lanz’ corpse was searched, and found sewn into his vestments was a list of members of the Illuminati and other papers detailing the Silesian mission. If Lanz had made it there, his next task would have been to visit as many Lodges as possible. The papers discovered on his body made clear that Lanz was admonished to take note of the following: (1) the names of Lodges and villages or towns in which they are located; (2) the name of the Master of the Chair, the two wardens directly below him, and any other influential members of the Lodge; (3) what system does it practice; (4) how long has the Lodge been active; (5) the manner in which it is directed or operated; (6) how many degrees it confers above that of the three symbolic grades; (7) if they are aware of the Order of the Illuminati; (8) what opinion they have formed of it; (9) what are their thoughts concerning the persecutions of the Freemasons and Illuminati in Bavaria, and who they think is responsible; (10) what they say about the Disciples of Loyola and the Jesuits. He was also instructed not to reveal his status as an Illuminatus, with hope of provoking genuine responses. (Le Forestier, op. cit., p. 477).
There’s a few other errors in McKeown’s “compilation,” but it is magnitudes more accurate than the truly disgraceful article at Wikipedia. In 2004 or 2005, Wikipedia actually had a half-descent entry on the Illuminati. Now, it has since been gutted due to the editors there not having even a modicum of research ability. If you’re going to muck with a professed “encyclopedic” article, you’d better damn well know your material inside and out.
It is more than fitting, I suppose, that one of the real reasons why Wikipedia has emasculated itself - all in the name of being reputable (what a laugh!) - is because Freemasons, and their coterie of professed know-it-all’s, have, as a sole purpose in life (perhaps as marching orders), the pooh-poohing of any possibility of a real “conspiracy” involving “real” secret societies who may or may not be affiliated with “benevolent” Freemasonry, whom they assure everyone, has not had a hand in the hidden-hand of history.

The New American website has posted a slightly redacted version of William H. McIlhany’s 1996 article which appeared in the September 16, 1996 issue of The New American. (The original can be read here, which, in turn, appears to be based on one of McIlhany’s presentations).
I first became aware of McIlhany’s writings on the Illuminati in 2000. At the time I was very impressed by what I read, and immediately realized that his information on the real Bavarian Illuminati was more thorough than most. However, my own knowledge on the subject is a bit more advanced than it was some nine years ago. So with that in mind, here are some exaggerations and/or misrepresentations which struck me as I reread the article at The New American for the first time in years.

“Kölmer” and the Origin of the Lesser and Greater Mysteries of the Illuminati

According to McIlhany, Weishaupt was “instructed by a mysterious occultist named Kölmer.” The only problem I have with this statement is that it is not qualified with “alleged” or “purported.”
The Kölmer legend first appeared in Volume III of Abbé Augustin Barruel’s tome against Philosophes, Freemasons, the Illuminati and the Jacobins. He related it rather tentatively as a rumour going round, and as a possible way of explaining the ostensibly advanced nature of Weishaupt’s mysteries.

It is not known, and it would be difficult to discover, whether Weishaupt ever had a master, or whether he is himself the great original of those monstrous doctrines on which he founded his school. There exists, however, a tradition which on the authority of some of his adepts we shall lay before the reader.
According to this tradition, a Jutland merchant, who had lived some time in Egypt, began in the year 1771 to overrun Europe, pretending to initiate adepts in the antient mysteries of Memphis. But from more exact information I have learned that he stopped for some time at Malta, where the only mysteries which he taught were the disorganizing tenets of the antient Illuminees, of the adopted slave; and these he sedulously infused into the minds of the people. These principles began to expand, and the island was already threatened with revolutionary confusion, when the Knights very wisely obliged our modern Illuminee to seek his safety in flight. The famous Count (or rather mountebank) Cagliostro is said to have been a disciple of his, as well as some other adepts famous for their Illuminism in the county of Avignon and at Lyons. In his peregrinations, it is said, he met with Weishaupt, and initiated him in his mysteries. If impiety and secrecy could entitle a person to such an initiation, never had any man better claims than Weishaupt. More artful and wicked than Cagliostro, he knew how to direct them among his disciples to very different ends.
Whatever may have been the fact with respect to this first master, it is very certain that Weishaupt needed none.
- In Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism, Real-View-Books reprint (1995), pp. 402-3.
Unfortunately, Barruel gave no citation nor provided a single clue as to which of Weishaupt’s adepts had recounted the story. Furthermore, Barruel’s book is the first instance in print of the Kölmer speculation, and all subsequent authors afterwards who have repeated it are relying solely on this one passage. Count Le Couteulx de Canteleu’s Les Sectes et Sociétés Secrètes draws attention to it (adding that Kölmer may be identical to Cagliostro’s alleged Master, Altotas), while Nesta Webster reiterated both Le Couteulx de Canteleu and Barruel.
In any case, Barruel was correct when he added the caveat that, in truth, Weishaupt needed no Master.
We now know much about Weishaupt’s influences - from philosophers such as Wolff, Leibniz, Bonnet, Locke, Meiners and Feder; to the precise number of books (4212 volumes) he had full access to in the library of his godfather Ickstatt - that “a Kölmer” is totally unnecessary. Ickstatt’s library may have been one the largest personal collections in Europe. Having free roam amongst the stacks, Weishaupt became an eclectic and a precocious bibliophile (see Perfectibilists, p. 16 and n.6 on p. 41).
Meiners, Christoph (1747 Warstade, Germany – 1810 Göttingen, Germany) Noms de Guerre: Dicearch/Belisar (December 1783, Illuminatus Major)
Christoph Meiners (1747 Warstade, Germany – 1810 Göttingen, Germany) Noms de Guerre: Dicearch/Belisar (December 1783, Illuminatus Major)
Books were constantly being recommended to his initiates. Most of his “mysteries” had in fact been culled from choice sections among the writings of Meiners and Feder (who in turn became Illuminati themselves), Rousseau, Leibniz and Wolff. And while Nesta Webster gives credence to the Kölmer myth on the basis that some of the Illuminati mysteries reference such things as Fire Worship, Zoroastrianism, and the Mysteries of Eleusis; the plain fact is the very idea for such a thing stems from the contemporary religious studies of Meiners, a fellow philosopher whom Weishaupt admired.
German Illuminati expert Monika Neugebauer-Wölk, writes:
From the outset, the Illuminaten Order evidently regarded itself as a competitor in an emporium … Between 1777 and 1779, Weishaupt developed the foundations of a grade system, initiatory rites, and a language using geographical and historical terminology…
For this purpose, two texts on the history of religion by the Göttingen professor of philosophy Christoph Meiners (1747-1810) were fundamental, namely Über die Mysterien der Alten, besonders über die Eleusinischen Geheimnisse (1776) and De Zoroastris vita, institutis, doctrina et libris Commentatio prior (1778). Meiners portrayed the ancient mysteries as a double initiation of believers. Superstitious notions were conveyed in the “Lesser Mysteries”, while in the “Greater Mysteries” the veil of superstition was torn away and those deemed worthy were initiated into the truths of rational understanding of God. Weishaupt accordingly drafted first texts for the Lesser and Greater Mysteries of the Illuminaten – “The religion of reason” as a mystery of an esoteric league –, and this idea was the starting point of the Illuminaten “order-system.”The presentation of the mystery grades, above all the form of the initiations and the temple, was conceived as an adaptation of the “fire-worship” of Zarathustra. The worldly struggle of the Illuminaten was related to the dualistic struggle between good and evil as cosmic principles. In June 1778, Weishaupt first dated an Order letter from “Eleusis” rather than “Ingolstadt”; simultaneously he began to use an ancient Persian calendar for dates. In this early phase, when Weishaupt was solely in charge, the secret society of the Illuminaten was conceived as a mystery league on the basis of the Enlightenment’s understanding of the history and criticism of religion.

As early as January, 1778, we find Weishaupt recommending Meiners to his trusted student/disciple/initiate, Franz Xaver von Zwack (Cato). “[R]ead … Various Philosophic [Writings] from Meiners, in three parts,” Weishaupt writes. “In the latter, one finds a treatise on the Eleusinian mysteries, that will bring you great enlightenment” (in Einige Originalschriften des Illuminatenordens, pp. 198-9).
The entire nomenclature of the Lesser and Greater Mysteries of the Illuminati follows the pattern of what Meiners had written on the subject, who thought that it was only the Epopt of the Greater Mysteries who finally became privy to the final secret, lifting the veil of superstition: that the Gods were only men who had become deified.


McIlhany writes that members entered the “top-level circle of initiates as an Illuminatus Major, just below the position of Rex held by Weishaupt.”
Illuminatus Major wasn’t a top-level degree. They were the Masters of the Minervals, but that is about it. After that came Illuminatus Dirigens, Epopt, Regent, Magus, and then Rex or Man-King (Docetist). Weishaupt’s position was General, below that was his Areopagites, National Superiors, Provincials and Prefects.

Insinuating Brethren

McIlhany: “The secret police of the Order killed anyone who tried to inform the authorities about the conspiracy. This band was known as the ‘Insinuating Brethren’ and had as its insignia an all-seeing eye.”
1) The Illuminati did not assassinate anyone; there were quite a few defectors and denunciators, who did quite a bit of damage, but no one was murdered because of it. 2) I’ve searched for any reference, but of all the primary material - contemporary and reliable secondary ones (Le Forestier, Schüttler, Dülmen, Engel et al.) - consulted, the all-seeing eye is never once mentioned, let alone suggested that the Bavarian Illuminati had adopted it as a symbol. On the contrary; the sigil of the Illuminati was the owl of Minerva. Other prominent symbols included a pyramid painted on the floor of the Lodge during Minerval ceremonies, elements from Egypt, Greece and Rome intermingled, and the seven stars of Pleiades with the crescent moon.

Violence and Insurrection?

The “original writings of the Order,” says McIlhany, “included detailed instructions for fomenting hatred and bloodshed between different racial, religious, and ethnic groups … instructions about the kinds of buildings to be burned in urban insurrections.”
How can I say this politely? Absolute 100% bunk!
I wonder which “original writings” McIlhany has read, because the real ones do not include anything about insurrection, violence, or racial strife. The original writings contain directives that are subtle. Things like tactics for infiltration and methods of subversion. Even when revolution is hinted at, it is only in the context of a gradualist scheme. In fact, in the degree of Illuminatus Major, Weishaupt explicitly says that sudden upheaval and violent means are to be avoided in favour of infiltrating and occupying the state from within:
…it will be necessary [sic] to divest vice of its power, that the honest man may find his recompense even in this world; but in this grand project, we are counteracted by the Princes and the Priesthood; the political constitutions of nations oppose our proceedings. In such a state of things then what remains to be done? To instigate revolutions, overthrow every thing, oppose force to force, and exchange tyranny for tyranny? Far be from us such means. Every violent reform is to be blamed, because it will not ameliorate things as long as men remain as they are, a prey to their passions; and because wisdom needeth not the arm of violence.”
“The whole plan of the Order tends to form men, not by declamation, but by the protection and rewards which are due to virtue. We must insensibly bind the hands of the protectors of disorder, and govern them without appearing to domineer.”
“In a word, we must establish an universal empire over the whole world, without destroying the civil ties. Under this new empire, all other governments must be able to pursue their usual process, and to exercise every power, excepting that of hindering the Order from attaining its ends and rendering virtue triumphant over vice.
“This victory of virtue over vice was formerly the object of Christ, when he established his pure religion. He taught men, that the path to wisdom consisted in letting themselves be led for their greater good by the best and wisest men. At that time preaching might suffice; the novelty made truth prevail; but at present, more powerful means are necessary [sic]. Man, a slave to his senses, must see sensible attractions in virtue. The source of passions is pure; it is necessary that every one should be able to gratify his within the bounds of virtue, and that our Order should furnish him with the means.
“It consequently follows, that all our brethren, educated on the same principles, and strictly united to each other, should have but one object in view. We must encompass the Power of the earth with a legion of indefatigable men, all directing their labours, according to the plan of the Order, towards the happiness of human nature—but all that is to be done in silence; our brethren are mutually to support each other, to succour the good labouring under oppression, and to seek to acquire those places which give power, for the good of the cause.”
- Translated by Barruel, op. cit., pp. 458-9 [emphasis in the original].
It is true the later degrees of Epopt and Regent expressed outright hatred of the established order with a view toward an anarchist utopian-primitivist solution. But short of taking control of the machinery of the state (gradually, methodically and surely), there was nothing in the original writings that could be construed, even by the most zealous opponent, as instructions for “fomenting hatred and bloodshed” or “about the kinds of buildings to be burned in urban insurrections.”
On the other hand, just hinting that civil society needed to be reorganized – changed, subsumed, and replaced – is akin to advocating revolution whether explicitly professed or not. And no doubt there were some correspondences and writings that did in fact go much further, but which were never discovered. We do known, for example, the most damning evidence was quickly burned before the authorities had a chance to get their hands on them.
McIlhany touches a bit on what he believes to be Illuminati influence upon the French Revolution, but of all those he mentions – Mirabeau, Orléans (Philippe Egalité), Brissot, Condorcet, Savalette, Grégoire, Garat, Pétion, Babeuf, Barnave, Sieyes, Saint-Just, Desmoulins, Hébert, Santerre, Danton, Marat, Chenier – only one was actually a bona fide confirmed member of the Illuminati: Charles-Pierre-Paul Savalette de Langes (1746-1797), Master of the Amis Réunis and of the Philalèthes.
That last revelation is part of the new evidence discussed in my book Perfectibilists.
Two years before McIlhany wrote that article for The New American, Hermann Schüttler, the world’s foremost expert on the Illuminati alive today, published for the first time the forgotten diary of J. J. C. Bode (1730-1793), the de facto second head of the Illuminati. For the first time in 200 years we now have explicit details as to what Bode was up to in Paris just two years before the Revolution, and, by his own admission, precisely who he had initiated into the cause.

Was Carl Jung’s Ancestor an Illuminatus?

There’s two Illuminati with the last name Jung identified in Hermann Schüttler’s Die Mitglieder des Illuminatenordens 1776-1787/93 (Munich: Ars Una 1991): Franz Wilhelm Jung (1757-1833) and Johann Sigmund Jung (1745-1824).
The latter, it turns out, was probably the uncle to the famed Swiss psychoanalyst’s grandfather, Carl Gustav Jung (1794-1864).

Here, from “Carl Gustav Jung, Avant-garde Conservative,” a 2008 doctoral dissertation by Jay Sherry.
Jung was descended from two well-known Basel families. His paternal grandfather and namesake Carl Gustav Jung (1794-1864) was born in Mannheim, Germany and studied medicine at the universities of Heidelberg and Berlin. He came under the influence of two leading liberal Protestant theologians Jacob Fries and Friedrich Schleiermacher. Besides a close personal relationship there was a social connection as well, Jung’s uncle Johann Sigismund von Jung was married to Schleiermacher’s younger sister. Due to Schleiermacher’s influence, Jung renounced his Roman Catholic faith and converted to Protestantism.
Even though Sherry doesn’t provide a date of birth and death, the mere fact that “Johann Sigismund von Jung” was the uncle of Carl Gustav Jung (b. 1794), narrows it down, and brings us squarely into the era of the Illuminati. A further search at Google books seems to confirm that “Johann Sigismund von Jung” was indeed the same “Johann Sigmund Jung” identified as an Illuminatus.
According to a few biographies of Carl Jung, “Johann Sigismund von Jung” was born in 1745 and died in 1824 - the same date of birth and death as the Illuminatus Johann Sigmund Jung (1745-1824) - and was a “chancellor” of Bavaria. Similarly, in Schüttler’s short bio of Illuminatus Johann Sigmund Jung we learn that in 1799 he was a member of the legislature (Regierungsrat) in Straubing, Bavaria; and from 1799 to 1802, on the governing court council (Hofgerichtsdirektor) in Memmingen, Bavaria, and a director of the Court of Appeals in Straubing. (Eighteenth-century German occupations and titles are notoriously difficult to translate; a Bavarian “Regierungsrat” or “Hofgerichtsdirektor” might very well be simplified as “Bavarian chancellor” to denote an official of high rank.)
Johann Sigmund Jung was a member of the Masonic Lodge “Maximilianische vollkommene Einigkeit zur goldenen Sonne” [Maximilien United to the Golden Sun] in Munich. His rank within the Illuminati was that of Minerval, and he had two code-names: Columella and Penelop(e). The last alias is a mystery. Penelope is a feminine noun (strange indeed), alluding to any of the following: 1) Penelope (dryad), the mother of Pan; 2) the wife of Odysseus in Homer’s Odyssey; or 3) Penelope of Celtic/Welsh fairy lore.
If Johann Sigmund Jung (1745-1824) and Johann Sigismund von Jung (1745-1824) are one and the same - more likely than not - there is no indication that Carl Jung was aware of the fact that one of his extended-ancestors was a member of the Illuminati. And despite this, Jung was still highly attuned to his forebears. He was aware of his grandfather being a Freemason, for instance, and that the latter’s coat of arms included Rosicrucian and Masonic symbolism. Jung had also claimed to have been a descendant of an original 17th-century Rosicrucian:
Crucially, in his autobiography Jung goes on to trace the roots of his destiny as the founder of analytical psychology beyond his grandfather. Although his train of thought is typically obscure on this point, Jung suggests he is descended from a Dr. Carl Jung of Mainz (d. 1645), whom he portrays as a follower of none other than Count Michael Maier, a ‘founder’ of Rosicrucianism. As a ‘Paracelsian’ this supposed ancestor was purportedly acquainted with Gerhard Dorn, a man whom Jung believed to have “grappled with the process of individuation” more than any other alchemist. Jung goes on to comment suggestively that “all this is not without certain interest” in light of his own concern with alchemical symbolism and the coniunctio oppositorum (’conjunction of opposites’). In this way Jung intimates that the unanswered questions he felt driven to resolve through his lifelong intellectual and therapeutic work stretch back to the Rosicrucianism of Count Michael Maier and the alchemy of the Paracelsians.
