Ruled from the Shadows:
Secret Societies Ancient and Modern
by Doug Michael
“Our country like so many before us, and like so many after us, was in fact founded by Freemasons. Freemasonry, in one form or another, has played a role in almost every government that was founded in this world. It is powerful in operation today throughout the world. However, we do want to establish first that what we are not talking about is Blue Masonry, or the Masonic lodges in your home town. We are not talking about the Freemasons that live across the street from you. We’re talking about a worldwide fraternal organization that is powerful enough, old enough, and wise enough to operate behind all governments in the world, behind fraternal institutions, and behind international monetary systems in the world. And, yes, they are, in fact, connected.”
- Jordan Maxwell
The Consortium is a vast network of secret societies, political think-tank groups, intelligence networks, fraternal organizations, and other institutions, whose members at the very top are connected by genetic bloodline; they are interrelated.
People that rise to the top in politics in the United States for instance, are related to the European ruling class families. Out of the 44 presidents the United States has had, 34 of them have been high level Freemasons. Every single president the US has ever had, has always possessed the most “royal genes” or blood connections to the European ruling families, as Burke’s Peerage1 has clearly shown.
There was only one time in the history of the US that the candidate with the most genetic connections to the European aristocratic bloodlines did not win, and that was in 2004 when John Kerry lost to G.W. Bush, amidst very fishy circumstances in Ohio. The Consortium had their man who would be kept in the position of the presidency to do the bidding of the Round Table Network. He has done more than any other president in history, to undermine US sovereignty, to remove liberties and to destroy the image of the US in the eyes of the world. The agenda continues under Obama and will continue no matter which figurehead is placed into office.
The US is a one party system, in which candidates are hand-picked, for the most part by the Consortium and its round table organizations. The voting system is an illusion, a false left/right paradigm. Of course, the Consortium can always simply rig an election to work in their favor, as was clearly demonstrated in 2000. There is a reason that people like Barack Obama, G.W. Bush, or Bill Clinton are chosen to be placed into the presidency and it has nothing to do with leadership abilities or allegiance to the people of the US. They are chosen based on their genetic bloodlines and their allegiances to the Consortium and its Round Table and secret society networks.
We are on the very cusp of this global, totalitarian, super state, and it remains to be seen if enough people will become aware of it before there is more needless suffering. This edifice of power is in place only because the majority of people give their power away to it. We are tricked into doing so basically from birth. There are a multitude of secret societies, many of which appear unconnected but are intimately so at the top of the Consortium’s pyramid. Let’s take a look at some of them:
I want to make it clear right from the start that I am not referring to all Freemasonry when I speak about the Consortium and their elite, secret society network. I understand that Freemasonry was, and is very much so today, a philanthropic organization, that actually does do good works for communities and for people. What I will be referring to here is the “Illuminist” Freemasonry, the upper echelons of this fraternal order that was long ago infiltrated by agents who were followers of the philosophies of Adam Weishaupt, Giuseppe Mazzini, and Albert Pike among others. These people were absolute globalists who believed in and taught philosophies of a small, elite class, ruling over the people, in a dictatorial manner. Many high-level politicians are absolute followers of these philosophies and are placed into the positions where they can enact them. Very simply, an “Illuminist” is someone who is initiated, or illuminated into the esoteric knowledge that the majority of the people are denied.
Just like the Round Table Network, Freemasonry, (and all other fraternal organizations that the Consortium operates through) has an inner and an outer court. They must operate in a top-down manner to remain hidden. These Illuminists have been referred to as “Luciferians” by many researchers and that’s exactly what they are, dark Luciferians. The Illuminists are ruthless in every sense of the word, and we need to get a good background of how they infiltrated Freemasonry to get a glimpse into their workings.
Just as the Jordan Maxwell quote referenced above states, I and other researchers into this type of information, are not talking about “Blue Lodge” Freemasons or your neighbors who are Masons that may actually do great works for the community. We are not talking about the Masons that help construct nursing homes and children’s hospitals. We are talking about the Illuminists that operate from within the inner circles of Freemasonry.
Freemasonic, solar and stellar occult symbolism appears everywhere in society, including on many nations’ flags. It appears on corporate logos, in the media, in government buildings, on many products in commerce, and in schools and churches.
Some researchers and historians attest that Freemasonry can be traced back to Egyptian times and although prior to the middle ages, historical evidence is scarce, Freemasonry is indeed an ancient order. It is interesting that Freemasonry displays many Egyptian symbols on their regalia and in their lodges.
Rather than try to trace the entire history of this organization, I’d like to point to the late 1700s when Masonry was infiltrated by a group known as the Bavarian Illuminati. Again, the term Illuminati refers to those initiated into the esoteric secrets that remain hidden from the general population. The word esoteric simply means “hidden,” or “restricted” knowledge. Those within the upper echelons of illumined Freemasonry use this esoteric knowledge for their nefarious purposes; they can absolutely be considered black magicians or dark sorcerers, and the way the Consortium perpetuates the control paradigm is through the psychological manipulation of human consciousness.
Ferdinand, the Duke of Brunswick, who was a high level Grand Master of world Freemasonry warned in the late 18th century:
“I have been convinced that we, as an order, have come under the power of some very evil occult order, profoundly versed in science, both occult and otherwise, though not infallible, their method being Black Magic, that is to say, electro-magnetic power, hypnotism and powerful suggestion. We are convinced that the order is being controlled by some Sun Order, after the nature of the Illuminati, if not by that Order itself.”
The Duke’s reference to a “sun order” is very interesting, because Masonic, solar imagery appears everywhere and the upper level Masons and Illuminists pay homage to the sun in their rituals, art and symbolism. Solar, stellar, lunar and saturnian symbolism is prominent everywhere; it is ubiquitous to the point that most cannot even see it.
The Bavarian Illuminati was founded on May 1st, 1776, by a former Jesuit by the name of Adam Weishaupt. He was a professor of Canon law at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria, Germany. Weishaupt formed the order as the “Order of Perfectibilists,” which later became the Illuminati, and he adopted the name of “Spartacus.” Weishaupt formed the Order of Perfectibilists with a man called Adolph Freiherr Knigge, a Freemason and German writer. The Illuminati was formed as a secret society whose mission was to establish a New World Order, a tyrannical, globally based system of oppressive control.
The Bavarian government acted to suppress the Illuminati because of its intention to overthrow the governments of Europe, which many historians generally agree upon.2
The financial force behind the Illuminati was the house of Rothschild, which funded the French Revolution and other wars.3 In 1784, Weishaupt issued the orders to instigate the French Revolution. Apparently, in the late 18th century Weishaupt also issued orders to instigate the Revolutionary War in order to weaken the British Empire.4 In 1784, a courier for Weishaupt was ordered to deliver the plans for the French Revolution to the Illuminist lodges in France, apparently headed by Robespierre. On his way from Frankfurt to Paris, the courier was struck by lightning and killed. Police recovered the documents detailing the plan to instigate the French Revolution, and the Bavarian government ordered the raiding of Weishaupt’s lodges (Grand Orient Lodges) and the homes of his influential, fellow Illuminists. The Bavarian government became convinced, after recovering further Illuminati documents, that the documents were genuine, and that the Illuminati indeed intended to start wars, funding all sides, with the intention to establish a centralized order, which would be funded by the Rothschild banking dynasty.5
The Bavarian government outlawed the Illuminati in 1785, and in 1786 published all of the details of the Illuminati conspiracy for world government. The Consortium however, is pervasive and the actions of the Bavarian government merely forced the Illuminati underground, despite their warnings which were sent to all of the heads of church and state throughout Europe. The warnings were ignored.
It was at this time, that Weishaupt ordered the Illuminists to infiltrate the blue lodges of Freemasonry and form the inner court within Masonry. The brilliant playwright Myron Fagan exposed in the 1960s, the plan to infiltrate Masonry with Illuminism:
“…Only Masons who proved themselves internationalists and those whose conduct proved they had defected from God were initiated into the Illuminati. Thenceforth; the conspirators donned the cloak of philanthropy and humanitarianism to conceal their revolutionary and subversive activities.”6
Fagan goes on to state:
“In order to infiltrate into Masonic lodges in Britain, Weishaupt invited John Robison over to Europe. Robison was a high degree Mason in the ‘Scottish Rite.’ He was a professor of natural philosophy at Edinburgh University and Secretary of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Robison did not fall for the lie that the objective of the Illuminati was to create a benevolent dictatorship; but he kept his reactions to himself so well that he was entrusted with a copy of Weishaupt’s revised conspiracy for study and safekeeping.”7
Robison published a book, based on the documents Weishaupt entrusted him with titled: Proof of a Conspiracy to Destroy all Governments and Religions but his warnings were ignored. Robison warned Masonic leaders in America about the Illuminati’s infiltration into their established order, just as the Duke of Brunswick had issued his warnings. John Quincy Adams, a Mason, also issued orders concerning the Illuminati. Adams wrote three letters to Col. William L. Stone, a high level Mason, detailing how Thomas Jefferson was using the Masonic lodges for the Illuminati. Those letters still exist, in the Library in Whittenburg Square, in Philadelphia.8
Freemasonry consists of 33 degrees of official initiation, but most will never reach the upper echelons of the inner court, and will have no idea of the Illuminists that pervade their organization. In 1834, the Illuminati recruited an Italian revolutionary and 33rd degree Freemason by the name of Giuseppe Mazzini, into the order. Mazzini founded the notorious criminal entity known as the Mafia in 1860. Mazzini recruited a man into the order by the name of Albert Pike, who he wanted to head the American chapter of illumined Freemasonry. In a letter to Pike, Mazzini outlined the intentions to infiltrate the order of Freemasonry and to create a secret society within the already established order:
“We must allow all the federations to continue just as they are, with their systems, their central authorities and their diverse modes of correspondence between high grades of the same rite, organized as they are at the present, but we must create a super rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree whom we shall select. With regard to our brothers in Masonry, these men must be pledges to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become the one international center, the more powerful because its direction will be unknown.”9
The Illuminati wished to infiltrate the already established order of Freemasonry, which was active worldwide and they were successful. To this day the Illuminati rule the inner court of Freemasonry and are one of the hidden hands of the Consortium’s network. In 1785, first American President, and high level Freemason, George Washington, in a letter written to one Reverend G.W. Snyder, claimed his support for the Illuminati’s presence within the order of Freemasonry:
“Reverend, Sir, it was not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati-the principles of Jacobinism-had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am.”10
Washington admitted that he was not only aware of the Illuminati’s doctrine spreading to the US, but that he was happy about it. The majority of the founders of the US were in fact Freemasons, but how many were actually illumined Freemasons? Is it possible, that the Revolutionary War was a cover for the shift from overt control, to covert control by the Illuminati, as per Weishaupt’s vision to weaken the British Empire in America? Many researchers do believe so.
Albert Pike served as a Brigadier General in the Confederate Army, and was tried for treason, only to be pardoned by President Andrew Johnson, a fellow Freemason. Pike was one of the key players of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, and also one of the founders of the infamous Ku Klux Klan, and one of the top leaders of that organization. Pike was said to be a Satanist who was heavily into the occult. In Washington DC, near Capitol Hill, a statue of Pike stands to honor him not as a war general, but as a master Mason.
The headquarters for the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry was established in Charleston, South Carolina, which is interesting because Charleston is situated at the 33rd parallel of latitude and this is no accident. Symbolism is everything with the Consortium and the illumined servants of this vast network.
In 1871, Pike published a book titled: Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry,11 in which he outlined a plan to enact three world wars to bring the New World Order into fruition. Author William Guy Carr, in his book Satan, Prince of This World,12 quotes a letter written by Pike to Mazzini, outlining the three wars that would lead to the establishment of the New World Order:
- The First World War: “must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the ‘agentur’ (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”
- The Second World War: “must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”
- The Third World War: “must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the ‘agentur’ of the ‘Illuminati’ between the political Zionists and the leaders of [the] Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”13
It appears as if Pike’s vision has played out according to plan, with the Third World War just on the horizon. With the current quagmires in Afghanistan, Palestine, Iraq and elsewhere the situation in the Ukraine, conflicts in Libya and Obama’s antagonism towards Iran, it appears as if the Illuminati is right on schedule, or perhaps just a bit behind. [BUT see Albert Pike @ http://nexusilluminati.blogspot.com/search/label/albert%20pike - N.I.]
We can see clearly that Pike’s vision for the first two world wars have played out precisely as he predicted, and that the third war appears to be playing out just as he envisioned as well. These however were not merely predictions by Pike; they were blueprints for the Illuminati’s march towards a fascist, global government.
The Illuminati are heavily into solar worship and Luciferianaism. Lucifer was the “Morning Star,” the “light bearer,” of course “light” refers to knowledge. As Pike himself claimed:
“Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the spirit of darkness! Lucifer the son of the morning! Is it he who bears the light? Doubt it not!”14
Or, in more recent times, as the UN Director of Planetary Initiative [sic] David Spangler claimed:
“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian initiation.”15
Illumined Freemasons are entrenched within the occult and their symbolism appears everywhere. In fact, the entire city of Washington DC was designed on esoteric principles and sacred geometry, and its monuments, statues, buildings, street layouts etc. contain heavy occult themes. A French Freemason by the name of Pierre Charles L’Enfant was employed to design the city on esoteric and occult motifs. 22 zodiacs are imbedded into the street plan of Washington DC, and even the name “District of Columbia” has significant, occult meaning.
The Egyptian hieroglyph for the star Sirius, is the dome, the 5 pointed star and the obelisk. In Washington DC, there is an obelisk ( a phallic symbol, symbolic of the penis of the Egyptian god Osiris, which represents male energy), the Pentagon (5 points) and the capitol building (the dome is also symbolic of the womb, or female energy). Some streets intersect at 33 degrees (33 degrees of Masonry) and others mark the points of the sun rising at the summer and winter solstices. Symbols have an effect and influence on the mind and the dark occultists of the Consortium know this well. This is why their symbolism appears everywhere.
Washington DC contains a plethora of occult symbols and it was specifically designed to be that way. A pentagram is not an evil symbol; it merely represents the four elements of nature: air, Earth, water and fire, with the fifth point facing upwards to signify spirit rising above the elements; however, the Consortium inverts sacred symbols to signify the negative as mentioned earlier. The inverted pentagram symbolizes spirit’s descent into matter and the material world. Within the street layout of DC is also an owl symbolic of the deity Moloch (or Baal) an ancient Phoenician deity to which human sacrifices were offered. Even many of the statues in Washington DC depict occult symbolism, such as the Lincoln statue, which symbolizes the emperor card of the Tarot. The emperor card of the Major Arcana of the Tarot symbolizes power, authority, command, control and the fathering aspect among other things.
Many people mistakenly believe that the United States of America was founded on the Christian religion. I think it’s more accurate to suggest that the USA was in fact founded upon Kabbalistic, occult Freemasonry, and roughly 98% of the founders were in fact Freemasons. Most of them were not even Christians; the founders were primarily Unitarians or Deists.
Freemasons have a dictum known as “Ordo Ab Chao,” which is Latin for: “Order out of Chaos.” Simply put, a crisis is created or engineered, from which order can be established, which invariably involves the removal of freedom and the consolidation of power. Managing created crises is the illuminist mode of operation for advancing their agenda towards the New World Order. Illumined Freemasonry is an influential force for the Consortium and they control and direct many significant areas of society including religion, education, the medical establishment, the media, and on and on the list goes.
There is a statue of first president and Freemason George Washington in the Smithsonian Museum, which appears quite odd until one discovers the symbolism. Washington is depicted in a half-naked pose, with his right arm raised upwards. People were taken aback by the strange pose, in which Washington was depicted but it was done that way on purpose, to symbolize a deity associated with a secret society group called the Knights Templar. The deity represented is a sort of hybrid, androgynous goat-human creature known as Baphomet, or as the Goat of Mendes. The depiction of Baphomet was created by an occultist by the name of Eliphas Levi and is said to have multiple meanings.
Apparently, Albert Pike was heavily influenced by Levi’s occult teachings. It is this author’s opinion that Levi may have modeled his depiction of Baphomet to the likeness of the devil card, one of the major arcana of the ancient Tarot.
Apparently, the Church of Satan adopted a representation of Baphomet to symbolize their deity.16 The sign of the goat has been associated with Satanism and it does have esoteric and ancient meanings. I believe it may also be associated with the astrological sign of Capricorn and with the ancient Greek deity, Pan, a half goat, half human creature that was said to be the god of goats and sheep, as well as the god of beekeeping.
It is certain that esoteric, occult symbolism appears everywhere in society, and the Consortium and its Illuminated servants are completely obsessed with ritual, the occult and symbolism. To understand the language of symbolism is to gain a much broader perspective into the workings of the Illuminati because their symbolism appears all over the place. In fact, occult symbolism is so prevalent in societies that most are completely unaware of its significance and presence, remaining oblivious of the symbols and illiterate of their esoteric meanings. They are merely accepted as mundane advertisements or company logos and few seem to have any interest.
The Knights Templar
The Knights Templar or “Knights of the Temple,” were a monastic order founded in 1112 C.E. (A.D.) to protect pilgrims journeying from Europe to the “holy lands” in Jerusalem during and following the Crusades. At least this is what official history teaches; however, the order was established with only nine knights which would have had a hell of a time protecting anyone. Official history also teaches that the Knights Templar was a group that took a vow of poverty, which was rare for knights, but nonetheless; they were referred to as “the poor Knights of Christ.” The “poor” Knights Templar quickly rose to great heights of power and were even endowed with Papal bulls by the church that enabled them to levy taxes and to collect tithing money within the areas that they controlled. The Templar Knights were primarily a military order and they grew to levels of great wealth, power and influence.
Apparently, the original 9 knights were led by Hugues de Payens, and were granted part of the Al-Aqsa mosque, which sat on the alleged site of Solomon’s Temple. The Templar Knights began excavating the temple and discovered a tunnel network, and many hidden treasures. Scholars allege that the Templar Knights found artifacts, scriptural scrolls, codices and documents on sacred geometry, art, science, astronomy and other esoteric knowledge of the Egyptian/Judaic, ancient mystery schools beneath the Temple Mount. Perhaps vast amounts of gold were also found, because the Templar Knights grew to become enormously wealthy. Archeological digs in more recent times have provided evidence of Templar excavations beneath the Temple Mount.
The Knights Templar was a military arm of another secret society known as the Priory of Sion. The word Sion comes from the Sanskrit “Siona” which means “sun.” Apparently, Leonardo Da Vinci became a high initiate in the Priory of Sion,17 and in some of his famous paintings, hidden, solar symbolism can be observed. Leonardo Da Vinci was backed by the de Medici banking family, which would later sponsor Christopher Columbus18 and all of the horrors visited upon the Native Americans that followed his arrival. Supporters of the Templar Knights included Saint Bernard, who founded the Cistercian Order, and the French St. Clair family, which changed their name to Sinclair upon their arrival in Scotland.19
After their excavations at the Temple Mount, the Templar Knights returned to their native lands, and their headquarters were established in Rosslyn, Scotland. The Knights Templar expanded rapidly, and eventually they became landholders in England, France, Spain, Scotland, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy, and Constantinople. The Templar Knights had recruited noblemen, which had to give over their land and wealth in order to join the Knights Templar.
The Templars were great builders and constructed temples and vast estates in southern France and Jerusalem. They were granted the right to build churches and constructed many of the medieval, European cathedrals based on the principles of sacred geometry and often constructed them on ancient, sacred sites, such as the Chartres Cathedral, located in France, southwest of Paris, which was built on the ruins of an ancient, Druidic site. Churches and temples are constructed on ancient sacred sites, because of the focus of energy upon those particular areas. Certain points of the Earth act as energy grids, and the Consortium constructs churches, monuments, temples, governmental buildings etc. on those energy grids and there is a reason for that as well. Certainly, the Templar Knights brought back from the Middle East, advanced, esoteric knowledge, and put it to use with the construction of their temples and churches, with an advanced style of architecture that Europe had never seen prior to the Templars.
The Templar Knights even established a type of banking system that is still in use today. This involves what has been termed in modern times “fraction reserve lending,” whereby; a fraction of what is physically on reserve is loaned and interest is charged on it. Today, with monetary transactions being mostly electronic, money that does not even exist is loaned, and interest is charged on the non-existent currency. This practice of lending money that does not exist and charging interest on it was originally developed by the Templar Knights and is still in practice to this day. Fraction reserve lending, or simply usury, is one of the ways that the Knights Templar became so wealthy.
The symbol of the Knights Templar was a Phoenician red cross on a white background, the same motif we see on the British flag, and the logo of the International Red Cross. The red cross on the white background appears elsewhere as well. Other Knights Templar symbols included the black and white checkered flag, the skull and crossbones and the watchtower, all of which are still prevalent symbols with the Consortium today. The Knights Templar were responsible for secreting ancient, esoteric knowledge underground, including knowledge of the ancient and mystical teachings of the Kabbalah, the tradition of ancient, Jewish mysticism.
Eventually, the Templar Knights amassed enormous wealth, and were rivaled only by the Roman Catholic Church. Between the treasures the Templar Knights had brought back from beneath the Temple Mount, and their banking/lending practices, they became so rich that the Church of Rome considered them a threat. Aristocrats and noblemen were deeply indebted to the Templar Knights, so a plot was hatched to eliminate them. The Knights Templar had gained enormous control over industry and finance, and had evolved into a formidable military force complete with their own navy. Philippe IV, king of France, (Philippe the Fair) was deeply in debt to the Knights Templar, envious of their enormous wealth, and angered at the Templar Knights refusal to accept him into the order.
In 1305, Philippe the Fair went to Rome to convince Pope Clement V that the Templar Knights were plotting to destroy the Church of Rome, and his word was accepted by Clement. Philippe the Fair and Clement had an agreement, that the French king would support Clement’s position as Pope, if he would help Phillip to destroy the Templar Knights. King Phillip returned to France and issued secret orders to French authorities against the Templars, and drew up a laundry list of charges against them, including heresy.
The orders to move against the Templar Knights were issued on Friday, October 13, 1307, and the French authorities began rounding up all the Knights they could find. This is why to this day, Friday the 13th is considered “unlucky.” The captured knights were imprisoned, tortured, executed and charged with a number of offenses including: necromancy, heresy, blasphemy and black magic.
Many of the Templar Knights (and much of their treasures) escaped the purge and some fled to Scotland where they went underground and eventually emerged as the Scottish rite of Freemasonry. Others that were scattered around Europe became known as the Teutonic Knights and still others joined a group known as the Knights Hospitallers, another military order involved with the crusades. There is even evidence to suggest that a group of the Knights Templar arrived in America in 1308, almost two centuries before Columbus ever set sail.20 In 1312, the Knights Templar was officially dissolved, and in 1314, the Grand Master Jacques Molay was burned at the stake.
One of the recent myths surrounding the Templar Knights, based on the book Holy Blood Holy Grail, and popularized by author Dan Brown’s book and subsequent film the Da Vinci Code, is the idea that the Knights Templar guarded the secret that Jesus Christ survived the crucifixion and that he conceived children with Mary Magdalene, and that they escaped to southern France and seeded what became the Merovingian bloodline. Certainly the Templar Knights possessed esoteric knowledge; however the story presented in recent popular books and films is merely a cover story. In fact, author of the Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown, and his publisher were sued by the authors of a book called, Holy Blood Holy Grail for copyright infringement in 2006.21
The aforementioned is just a scratch in the surface concerning the Knights Templar, and I do recommend the book Holy Blood Holy Grail, and there is a large amount of other research available that goes into great depth concerning the Knights Templar. It was important to mention this order, as it has emerged as modern Freemasonry and its symbolism is still with us today. Let’s take a look at a few more of the Consortium’s secret society groups:
The Skull and Bones Society (The Brotherhood of Death)
A fraternity located at Yale University, in Connecticut, the Skull and Bones (S&B) Society was founded in 1833 by William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft (grandfather of President Howard Taft) as an elite secret society. Russell’s stepbrother Samuel ran an organization called Russell and Co. which amassed a fortune in the early to mid 19th century due to the company’s heavy involvement with the opium trade. In fact, Russell and Co. was one of the largest smugglers of opium in the world at the time. In 1856, the order of Skull and Bones became incorporated as the Russell Trust.
The Skull and Bones fraternity is located in a building at Yale known as the Mausoleum, which resembles a tomb. How appropriate, considering that the order was established by blood money obtained through the opium trade. The S&B is known as chapter 322, and their emblem is a skull and crossbones with the numbers 322 beneath it. The number 322 is symbolic in that it relates to the time of the vernal equinox, or spring solstice. Everything is symbolism with the Consortium.
As stated, it’s the same bloodline that has always been in control, and American politics are no different. The figureheads that get into high positions of political power are those with genetic connections to the European aristocracy; the ones that will serve the Consortium, not the people. Initiation rites of the S&B are held on Deer Island, in the St. Lawrence, in the Thousand Islands region, between New York and Canada. I’ve seen the island while on a boat tour of the area; it’s the largest of the small islands, and it is very secluded. The tour guide will even tell you that the island is owned by the S&B fraternity (Russell Trust Association).
Russell and Co. obtained opium from Turkey and smuggled it into China under armed protection of the British. The Russells had established Connecticut as the primary headquarters for the US opium trade. This is how they amassed their fortune. Russell and Co. were also affiliated with the British East India Company which was also involved with the covert and illegal importation of opium into China. The smuggling of the highly addictive drug opium into China caused enormous problems in that country. Throughout the early 19th century, opium dens abounded throughout China and an estimated 2 million people became hooked on the powerful drug. The Consortium has always profited from human misery and the same holds true to this day.
Many high level politicians have been members of the S&B. Among them are:
- G.W. Bush: Former US president Bilderberg attendee.
- John F. Kerry: Democratic presidential candidate in 2004, cousin of G.W. Bush and CFR member.
- Prescott Bush: Former US senator, Bilderberger and Grandfather of G.W. Bush who helped to fund the Nazis through Brown Bros. Harriman and the Union Banking Corporation. Brown Bros. Harriman was made up largely of S&B members. During Prescott Bush’s days in the fraternity, he and fellow Bonesmen raided the grave of the Apache Native American leader Geronimo, and stole his remains. In June of 2007, the great grandson of Geronimo asked for the bones to be returned.24
- George Herbert Walker Bush: Father of G.W., Freemason, Bilderberger, CFR, TC. Partner in the Carlyle Group.25 Bush is an instrumental tool for the Consortium and a willing servant of its dark intentions.
- William Averell Harriman: former US Secretary of Commerce, ambassador to the Soviet Union, helped to fund the Nazis while partnered with Prescott Bush.
- William Howard Taft: Freemason and former US president from 1909-1913.
- Henry L. Stimson: Secretary of war under Taft; Secretary of State under Herbert Hoover; Secretary of War under Harry Truman. Stimpson urged Truman to drop the atomic bomb on the Japanese.
In his 2001 autobiography, A Charge to Keep: My Journey to the Whitehouse, G.W. Bush writes:
“My senior year I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society so secret I can’t say anything more.”26
Out of 313 million Americans, the Skull and Bones Society chooses 15 per year, that go on to occupy key positions in politics, corporations etc. The S&B is an influential arm of the Consortium’s network. Isn’t it interesting that three men from the same family would just so happen to attend the same fraternity, and go on to occupy high positions in American politics? Two became president, and the elder, Prescott, became a senator, even after his corporation (UBC) was seized by the US government in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, due to their involvement with the Nazis. How is it that two men (Averell Harriman and Prescott Bush) fellow brothers of the same fraternity, can commit treason, and then go on to occupy high positions in US politics? The Consortium places whoever it wants into whatever positions it wants and those that serve the agenda are rewarded. Unfortunately, a major part of the agenda has always been to undermine the US and destroy liberty. The Bushes and the Harrimans have certainly done their job well and the legacy continued with G.W’s illegal and unjustified murder of civilians in Iraq, his signing of legislation that destroys freedom, and basically his work in making sure that America falls deeper into the pit. The same policies continue today under Obama and no matter who winds up in the presidency, the agenda will continue until the people wake up.
Initiates of the Order of Death must participate in bizarre rituals, including lying naked in a coffin and revealing intimate details of their past sexual experiences while masturbating. New S&B recruits also wrestle in mud and are beaten, to signify their death and rebirth into the order. Their rebirth of course, is a birth into the Consortium’s, Masonic/Illuminati, Luciferian network. New Bonesmen are sworn to strict secrecy, threatened with blackmail and are encouraged to intermarry to maintain the consolidation of power within the order, but also to maintain the genetic bloodline of those in control.
In 2001, abc News showed a short segment which was filmed by New York Observer reporter Ron Rosenbaum and a small team of infiltrators, showing some of the Skull and Bones Society’s occult rituals. To symbolize the initiates’ death and rebirth into the order, the “neophytes,” can clearly be seen kissing skulls, and participating in a mock murder ritual.27
The Brotherhood of Death has groomed the eastern establishment families and initiates for over a century.
Each graduating Bonesman is granted a gift of $15,000 and promised financial security for life but they must give a percentage of their estates to the S&B Society. The Russell Trust Association owns most of Yale University’s real estate and most of Connecticut for that matter.
In her book Secrets of the Tomb: Skull and Bones, the Ivy League and the Hidden Paths of Power28, author Alexandra Robbins claims that in the 1880s, the S&B organization created the American Historical Association, the American Psychological Association and the American Economic Association. Both Time and Newsweek magazines were created by the S&B society. Robbins also claims that:
“Under the society’s direction, Bonesmen developed and dropped the nuclear bomb and navigated the Bay of Pigs invasion. Skull and Bones members had ties to Watergate and the Kennedy assassination. They control the Council of Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission so that they can push their own political agenda. Skull and Bones government officials have used the number 322 as codes for highly classified diplomatic assignments.”29
It’s important to realize that no single identifiable entity such as the S&B controls everything. The S&B Society is just one strand in the Consortium’s filthy web. Again, the true rulers that reside atop the pyramid must remain in the darkness but we can identify many of the groups that make up their network. Robbins claims she was threatened after publishing an article on the S&B society by one of its members.30 She says she had her career threatened and that the person that contacted her demanded to know where she got her information. One of the greatest things the Consortium fears is exposure. Since they are so few in numbers when compared to the general population, they must remain hidden. We are living in the age however, where a great unveiling is taking place, and the Consortium is being exposed like never before. This is why they are working so feverishly to complete their agenda in this time.
The Skull and Bones Society has produced more than 20 US senators, scores of other lower level politicians, and three Supreme Court Justices. Writing for “Esquire” magazine, Ron Rosenbaum claimed that he had found a connection between the S&B and the Bavarian Illuminati:
“I do seem to have come across definite, if skeletal, links between the origins of Bones rituals and those of the notorious Bavarian Illuminists”31
Of course there are connections between S&B and the Illuminati because they are ultimately the same network. Many Skull and Bones members become Bilderbergers, CFR members, Trilateral Commission members etc. Organizations that may appear to be unconnected are actually intimately so at the top of the Consortium’s pyramidal system.
The Bohemian Club
Founded in 1872, the Bohemian club is an all male club made up of some of the world’s most powerful and wealthy elites that meet each year for two weeks, in July, in Monte Rio, California, at a 2,700 acre retreat known as the Bohemian Grove. The retreat is very secluded amidst the Redwoods and it has been uncovered why this is so. Membership is private and as with other organizations such as the Bilderberg Group, the Bohemian Club is made up of top leaders in politics, business, banking and all the rest. Musicians, artists and writers are also among the membership of the Bohemian Club. The waiting list for membership into the club can be anywhere from 15-20 years, and there is an initiation fee of $25,000.32
As with the CFR, the TC and other Consortium networks, business and political policy is often determined behind the closed doors of Bohemian Grove meetings. In 1942, a Manhattan Project planning meeting took place at Bohemian Grove. The Manhattan Project was the organization which created the first nuclear weapons. Later that knowledge was used to develop the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki towards the end of WW II.
As many as 2,900 top CEOs, politicians, financiers etc. have been reported as attending the annual grove retreats. Just as with the Skull and Bones Society, and no doubt countless other Consortium groups, Bohemian Club members engage in bizarre rituals. Their symbol is the owl which is representative of the ancient deity Moloch, a Phoenician/Canaanite god to which human sacrifices were offered, primarily first born children. In the year 2000, activist/talk show host, Alex Jones infiltrated the grove with a small team and some hidden cameras. What they discovered was unsettling, to say the least.
In a documentary film titled: Dark Secrets: inside Bohemian Grove, Jones captured the attendees of the grove engaging in occult rituals. The Bohemian Club members engage in a ritual in which they dress in Druidic garb (black and red hooded robes) and conduct mock human sacrifices in front of a 45-foot-tall, stone statue of an owl, which again represents Moloch.
An effigy the size of a small child is placed on an alter and burned before the owl statue in a ceremony called the Cremation of Care. The effigy is floated across a lake, on a small boat navigated by a person whose face is painted up to look like a skull. During the ceremony, music is played through a PA system, as well as sinister sounding laughter and speeches by a booming voice which offers praise to the “owl of Bohemia,” Moloch. The Bohemian Grove rituals are reminiscent of ancient Druidic and Babylonian ceremonial rituals. The high priest of the ritual, awaits the effigy with his hand outstretched while standing in front of several, huge flames which surround the owl and the alter. These are many of the worlds’ top leaders in politics, banking, big business, the media, the Federal Reserve, etc. behaving this way and worshiping malevolent deities in their occult rituals. These are many of the people that discuss and set policy that affects humanity, acting this way and recreating sadistic, occult rituals. This is the mentality of the world leaders, and it gets much sicker than this.
Many high level people have attended the grove and engaged in the pagan rituals conducted by the Bohemian Club. Past and current membership reads like a who’s-who of the rich and famous. Many US presidents have attended the Bohemian Grove retreats, as well as foreign heads of state and high level politicians. Some of the Bohemian Grove attendees, past and present include:
- Former US presidents, Richard M. Nixon (CFR) and Ronald Reagan.
- Henry Kissinger: (BG, CFR) former Secretary of State under Nixon.
- David Rockefeller: (TC, CFR), international banker and globalist.
- Donald Rumsfeld: (BG, CFR) former Secretary of Defense under G.W. Bush.
- George H.W. Bush: (Freemason, Skull and Bones, CFR, TC, BG) former head of the CIA, former VP and former president.
- George W. Bush: Former US president (Skull and Bones).
- Colin Powell: (CFR) former Secretary of State under G.W. Bush.
- Gerald Ford: (Freemason, CFR, BG) former US president.
- Herbert Hoover: (Freemason, CFR) former US president.
- Helmut Schmidt: former chancellor of Germany.
The Knights of Malta
Also known as the Knights Hospitaller, this organization was founded in Jerusalem in 1080, to provide care for sick pilgrims, but it soon grew into a religious/military order, following the first crusade. After the loss of Christian land, the order operated from Rhodes in Greece, and eventually Malta, a small country which lies south of Sicily, and since 1522 have been known as the Knights of Malta.33 The Knights of Malta (KOM) had developed a formidable navy which fought many battles, until its defeat by Napoleon in 1789. In 1834, the Knights moved their headquarters to Rome with the assistance of Pope Leo XIII.
It is well known among researchers that the Vatican was deeply involved in assisting the escape of Nazi war criminals after WW II. Pope Pius II worked closely with a Cardinal named Francis Spellman, to provide safe haven to escaping Nazi war criminals. Many of the eugenics scientists that served the Nazi movement were smuggled into the US by intelligence and military services under the code name Operation Paperclip. Knights of Malta passports with sovereign status and fake identities were issued to the escaping Nazis. Cardinal Spellman was the “Grand Protector” of the Knights of Malta. The Catholic Church is a major arm of the Consortium and has always been deeply corrupted and heavily involved with advancing the agenda for the inception of the New World Order.
The KOM had deep connections to Freemasonry, and still does in its modern form. The modern, American order of the Knights of Malta was founded in 1924 by 13 people, including a man named John J. Raskob. Raskob was a business executive for the Du Pont Corporation and also for General Motors. He eventually became vice president of finance for both companies. Raskob also served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1928-1932. In 1934, Raskob was the chief financier of a fascist coup that was organized against President Roosevelt, which was exposed and foiled by a Marine major-general by the name of Smedley Butler who blew the whistle on the plot.
Alexander Haig, a Knight of Malta and Secretary of State under President Ronald Reagan, had heavy connections to Licio Gelli, a fellow Knight and Freemason, who was implicated in a massive scandal involving the Vatican, the Mafia, the CIA and the Freemasons. Gelli obtained control over the P2 Freemasonic lodge in Italy in 1966 and had increased its membership from 14 to close to 1,000.34 The P2 lodge was also known as the Propaganda Masonica Due, and was founded in 1877. The CIA was funding the P2 lodge which was brought to light by an Italian journalist named Mino Pecorelli, who was himself a P2 Mason. After Pecorelli went public, he was later found murdered, fatally shot in the mouth, which is what happens when you blow the whistle on the Consortium. Gelli was a deeply corrupted man with connections to Klaus Barbie, a Nazi war criminal and financial backer of the Fascist South American dictator Juan Peron. Author Jim Marrs claims that Gelli also said that he had close ties with George H.W. Bush, former president and head of the CIA,35 as well as a Freemason, a Bilderberger, a Skull and Bones member etc. The Bush family are willing servants of the Consortium.
P2 was implicated in numerous scandals, including a nationwide bribery scandal, the collapse of the Vatican affiliated bank, Banco Ambrosiano, and the murders of journalist Mino Pecorelli, Prime Minister Aldo Moro and banker Roberto Calvi.36 Between 1965 and 1981, the P2 lodge began infiltrating the Italian judiciary, media, military and parliament by sending its agents into those organizations, just as the Illuminati infiltrated Masonic lodges in the late 1700s. One of the Consortium’s techniques has always been infiltration, by putting their place-people into positions of power.
The P2 Masonic lodge included journalists, military leaders, industrialists and politicians, just as the Bilderbergers, the CFR and other Consortium networks do today. The P2 lodge was referred to as a “shadow government,” and a “state within a state.”
When the scandal broke, Italian police searched Gelli’s villa and found a document titled: “The Plan for Democratic Rebirth,” which outlined a plan to consolidate the media, suppress trade unions and to rewrite the Italian constitution, or in other words, to infiltrate and overthrow the current government and create a system of Fascism, under the direction of Illumined Freemasonry.
The P2 lodge was also active in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina; illumined Freemasonry is a global network. Italian police found a membership list of P2 affiliates which included high level politicians and military officers connected to Italian intelligence agencies as well as celebrities, financiers, police chiefs, diplomats, civil servants and journalists. Police also found a document titled “The Strategy of Tension,” which outlined plans to carry out false flag terrorist operations as a means to create an authoritarian government. “False flag” means that the attacks are carried out from within government, intelligence agencies or other networks, and blamed on an outside culprit to keep the real perpetrators hidden. False flag operations are one of the chief tactics of the Consortium and two of the most blatant have been the attacks of 9/11/01 and the London tube train bombings of 7/7/05.
Vatican officials were implicated in the P2 scandal as well as Consortium puppet and Bilderberger, Henry Kissinger. An American Catholic bishop named Paul Marcinkus, who was in charge of the Vatican bank, was involved in business deals which included the laundering of money for the Italian and American branches of the Mafia. Another person involved in the laundering scheme was Roberto Calvi, who fled to London when the scandal broke, and was later found hanging underneath Blackfriars Bridge. Earlier, Calvi’s secretary and P2 lodge bookkeeper “fell” from a fourth floor window of the Abrosiano Bank building.37 Others connected to the P2 scandal were also found dead under mysterious circumstances. Not surprisingly, the P2 scandal received virtually no attention in the Consortium-controlled, American media.
The Knights of Malta claim to be a philanthropic organization that aids the poor and provides humanitarian and medical assistance to the underprivileged, and do, at the lower levels, but within its inner court, the Knights of Malta are intimately connected to Illumined Freemasonry, the Vatican and the CIA. Just as with Freemasonry, and other Consortium front-groups, the Knights of Malta must hide behind the smokescreen of philanthropy to keep the actions of its inner court in concealment.
The order claims to have approximately 12,000 members worldwide. The inner court of the Knights of Malta is connected by blood to the European aristocracies, and it cannot be stated enough, that the Consortium and those in the upper echelons of its networks are of the same “royal” bloodline. The Sovereign Grand Master of the order is recognized as a head of state and the order maintains independent sovereign status and permanent observer status at the United Nations. Knights of Malta also maintain diplomatic immunity.
The symbol of the Knights of Malta is the Maltese cross often pictured as the opposite of the Templar cross, with a white cross on a red background, and just as the Templar symbols appear in many areas, so does the motif of the white cross with the red background, as with the flag of Switzerland, an area under heavy Consortium influence.
Many high level CIA officials have been Knights of Malta, such as John McCone, director of the CIA during the Kennedy presidency. The Knights of Malta, as with all other Consortium-controlled organizations, operates in a compartmentalized manner, so that those of the outer court will never be made aware of the workings, true goals and intentions of the inner court. It is this method of compartmentalization that keeps the inner workings of the Consortium hidden and shrouded in secrecy. The Knights of Malta answer to the Vatican, but not the church that the public is presented with; that’s just a smokescreen. The real power behind the Vatican is the Jesuit order, and their general is known as the “Black Pope.” The current Jesuit, Black Pope is a man by the name of, Adolfo Nicolás Pachón, and the Jesuit order is one of the major Consortium-controlled networks. Pachón is the 13th Jesuit general and succeeded a man by the name of Count Peter Hans Kolvenbach. The “White Pope” is the front man that the Vatican places in the public spotlight, just as the CFR and Bilderberg group places their front men/women into political office, while the true controllers remain in the shadows.
The Jesuit Order, Opus Dei and the OTO
The Jesuit Order or Society of Jesus is an arm of the Catholic Church which was founded by Ignatius Loyola in 1534. Ignatius was the first “superior general” of the order. The Jesuit motto is: Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam which means: “for the greater glory of God.” Of course “God” here refers to the malevolent consciousness they worship, and not the god that most Christians identify with. Loyola played a major role in fighting against the Protestant Reformation and instigating the Counter-Reformation. Loyola was canonized and received the title of saint in 1622. Remember also, that Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Bavarian Illuminati, and Dr. Joseph Hieronim Retinger, co-founder of the Bilderberg group, were Jesuits.
Eric Jon Phelps author of a thoroughly researched book titled: Vatican Assassins: Wounded in the House of My Friends,38 exposes the Jesuit Order as being intimately linked to Illumined Freemasonry, and a major player in the New World Order agenda. The Knights of Malta are the front line military/intelligence apparatus for the Jesuits and they answer to the Jesuit general, the Black Pope.
As historian/researcher Jordan Maxwell has pointed out, the Catholic Church was perhaps the greatest political movement ever undertaken. As an interesting aside, the Vatican possesses some of the world’s largest and sophisticated telescopes, and all astronomical discoveries must pass through the Vatican before being released to the public.
Since its inception, the Church of Rome has mass murdered tens of millions of people worldwide; has removed massive amounts of ancient, esoteric knowledge from circulation; has destroyed ancient wisdom, temples and indigenous peoples; has been involved in major scandals as with the P2 debacle; has enslaved, tortured and persecuted masses of people and today finds itself mired within a major scandal involving the massive and widespread molestation of young children. The Catholic Church is a malevolent entity, corrupt from its inception, and is a driving force behind the Consortium’s plan for global enslavement.
According to Phelps, In 750 C.E. “temporal power” was conferred onto the Pope. This means that the Pope has the right to rule any country, and to overthrow or kill any political leader. The Pope’s flag contains images of two keys, with a triple crown on top. The keys symbolize temporal and spiritual power. The key also appears on the American one dollar bill, which relates to Vatican intelligence. The American dollar is loaded with esoteric, occult symbolism.
Illumined Freemasonry is joined at the hip with the Jesuit order and the Knights of Malta. Vatican City is actually its own sovereign state within a state and is one of the main headquarters of Consortium control. Like Washington DC, the entire city is built on esoteric themes. The Jesuit Order began with nine men, and in fifteen years grew to a membership of over 1,000. The Jesuits swear obedience to the general of the order, which is the Black Pope.
Because of their power and influence, the Jesuits were suppressed in 1773 by the monarchs of France and Spain, and even some cardinals within the Vatican but the order was reestablished in 1814 by Pope Pius VII. According to Phelps, the Jesuits control universities such as Fordham and Georgetown, where they groom and train their agents to fulfill their future rolls serving the Consortium. The Jesuits control 93 provinces and 13 dependent regions. Each province is governed by a superior that answers to the Black Pope. In a letter penned to Thomas Jefferson in 1816, John Quincy Adams, the 6th American president and Freemason had this to say concerning the Jesuit Order:
“My history of the Jesuits is not elegantly written, but is supported by unquestionable authorities, is very particular and very horrible. Their restoration is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, perfidy, despotism, death and I wish we were out of danger of bigotry and Jesuitism.”39
I believe that Adams was one of the good guys, and much like the statesman Thomas Paine, he was a proponent of reason, and was strongly opposed to the Catholic Church. The symbol of the eagle and of the two-headed eagle appears everywhere and has been used throughout history. The eagle actually represents the mythical phoenix, which burns itself up and rises from the ashes. The heads are facing different directions, which symbolizes dominion over both east and west. The orb with the cross on top, within the left talon symbolizes church authority over the Earth, and the scepter symbolizes the spiritual impulses of humankind. A Maltese cross appears over the belly of the bird, which symbolizes military power.
The Roman Empire used the eagle symbol, as did the Nazis. Freemasonry displays this symbol as well. The eagle symbolism also appears in so many areas in the United States. It appears on our currency, on the logos of governmental agencies, in corporate advertising, and even appears in the logo of the Federal Reserve Bank. Why do these occult symbols that were used by the Third Reich, the Roman Empire, Illumined Freemasonry and the Vatican appear in so many areas in the US? The answer is because it’s the same force that has, and still does control the institutions/organizations that have co-opted these ancient, sacred symbols. Once the language of symbolism is understood, it’s amazing to see how many areas are controlled by the Consortium.
The eagle is also representative of the astrological sign of Scorpio. In ancient times, the eagle represented Scorpio, before it evolved into the symbol of the scorpion. The eagle is a bird of prey, which should also say something to the astute observer.
Marques de LaFayette, the French statesman and member of the Continental Army during the revolutionary war, had this to say concerning Jesuit power:
“It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country-the United States of America-are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars of Europe.”40
A former, 33rd degree, illumined, P2 Freemason by the name of Leo Zagami has in recent times, defected from the Consortium and has come forward with astounding information. Because of his background, I think it’s important to remain skeptical; however, the information he is presenting is certainly intriguing and worth consideration. It’s important to understand that the Consortium will place people into the spotlight, and even reveal pieces of the truth in the form of disinformation, to confuse those who are legitimately seeking. It’s also crucial to understand that many researchers will identify certain aspects of the Consortium, i.e. the Jesuits, the Bilderbergers, the political Zionists, the Knights of Malta, the Freemasons, the Bavarian Illuminati etc. and forget that the Consortium has many strands in its vast, inter-connected web. I feel that the core of the Consortium is unidentifiable, for the most part, and that it hides its true inner circle behind all of these organizations. It is not any one of these groups that is in charge, so to speak. It cannot be overemphasized that the Consortium operates through many different fronts and networks, and that at the top of their pyramidal hierarchy, it is essentially one organization.
Zagami claims to be of aristocratic bloodline, and a former member of the Monte Carlo Comitato Esecutivo Massonico, which means: “Masonic Executive Committee.” Zagami claims to have been the “prince” set to take the place of Licio Gelli as the head of the P2 lodge.
Zagami exposes that within the inner court of the Masonic lodges, black magic rituals were occurring and he retreated to Norway to escape from the torture and cruelty he was witnessing. He claims he was offered a bribe to keep quiet, which he refused, and that he was arrested by Norwegian police, detained and tortured several times. Within the inner circles of the Consortium, ritual sacrifice is common and is referred to as “Satanic” worship. I feel that Satan is merely an archetype, or symbol of an imbalanced, malevolent consciousness that the Consortium worships. At the innermost, secretive levels of the Consortium, it is this negative consciousness, and the lower level henchmen that engage in ritual sacrifice are paying homage to their masters, this malevolent spirit/consciousness that is the core of the true controllers.
Zagami claims that there is a lodge of Illumined Masonry within the Vatican, and that the Jesuits, illumined Freemasonry and the Knights of Malta are intimately connected. They are ultimately the same organization presented at the outer levels as being unconnected, just as the political groups of the Round Table network appear on the surface to be unconnected. Zagami also reiterates the method of compartmentalization, and the existence of a pyramidal system as the operational structure of these organizations.
In an interview on a program called “Current Issues,”41 Zagami claimed that the Rothschild and Rockefeller banking families were the Vatican bankers, and that they take their orders from the higher levels of illumined Masonry within the Vatican.
Two other organizations connected to the Jesuits, Freemasonry, the Illuminati, the Knights of Malta and the Vatican is a group called Opus Dei and an organization named the OTO which stands for Ordo Templi Orientis. Zagami refers to the high initiates involved with Opus Dei and the OTO as “Satanists,” and “Luciferians.” Zagami refers to the OTO as: “A very big network of Satanists worldwide.”42
He claims that the upper level, illumined Freemasons meet in the headquarters of Opus Dei, in Monte Carlo, and that the higher levels of Opus Dei are more powerful than Freemasonry.43 Opus Dei initiates are also high level masons, and like so many organizations controlled by the Consortium, Opus Dei hides behind the mask of religion and philanthropy. This organization which is an arm of the Church of Rome is widely known as being secretive. Zagami stresses that these networks, at the upper levels engage in mind control, and that the New World Order indeed has an agenda to microchip the population. Whether or not he is a disinformation agent, those two assertions are absolutely correct.
Author Phelps highlights the involvement of Opus Dei in the removal of Nazi war criminals and the relocation of them to South America after WW II (Operation Paper Clip). He also claims that the Opus Dei network was involved in the P2 scandal, and the murder of Roberto Calvi.
Ordo Templi Orientis means: “order of the temple of the East” or “order of Oriental Templars,” and is essentially a magical order entrenched within the occult and ritual. The OTO was founded between 1895 and 1900 by two Freemasons named Karl Kellner and Theodor Reuss. In 1912, Reuss befriended perhaps the world’s most infamous occultist, Aleister Crowley, and he was made head of the British chapter of the OTO.
Apparently, the rites of the OTO are very similar to the rituals performed in illumined Freemasonry and it is also compartmentalized with a degree system of initiation. The OTO’s logo contains occult symbols. Contained in the logo is the pyramid with the all-seeing eye, the rays of the sun, the inverted dove, and a chalice with the Iron Cross adorning it. The Iron Cross was an ancient symbol linked to a goddess temple in Malta, which was later adopted as a Prussian military medal, which was in turn adopted by the Germans and was worn by the Nazis. The Iron Cross was awarded only for military service, so why does it appear within the logo of the OTO, which is supposed to be a “holy” organization? The Iron Cross was originally associated with the Teutonic Knights, a faction of the Knights Templar.
Opus Dei members are also restricted from having access to their families, as with any well organized cult. Both the OTO and the Opus Dei networks are set up with an inner and outer court, just as all Consortium organizations, and the OTO was designed to resemble illumined Freemasonry. In 1912, Crowley published a manifesto which claimed that OTO initiates were consecrated with the wisdom and knowledge of:
- The Gnostic Catholic Church
- The Illuminati
- The Knights of Malta
- The Scottish rite of Freemasonry
- The Hermetic order of the Golden Dawn
- The Knights of St. John
- The Rosicrucian Order
The OTO claims to hold the esoteric knowledge of 20 occult, secret society groups in all, which it teaches to its members. Just as Freemasonry, the OTO operates with an initiation system and only the upper level adepts will ever know the true intentions of this magical order. Crowley organized the OTO based on the law of Thelema modeled on the principals of Crowley’s Book of the Law. Within the upper levels of the Consortium’s, esoteric orders, black magic rituals are invoked to harness malevolent forces, while the lower level initiates are taught that they are following the path of enlightenment. Again, occult knowledge is not “evil.” The knowledge itself is neutral, and can be used for positive or negative intent. The Consortium of course, uses this ancient wisdom to attain its ends towards the New World Order system of enslavement. The Consortium is involved with sickening rituals that include human sacrifice, and sex and blood rituals.
The amount of secret society networks that are controlled in a compartmentalized, initiation, hierarchical system by the Consortium is numerous. I simply wanted to point out a few of the major ones that are under heavy Consortium influence. There are many others, among them are:
- The Rosicrucian Order: (the Rosy Cross) this secret society included members such as Sir Francis Bacon, and British Colonial Minister, Lord Edward Bulwer-Lytton, an occultist who was deeply involved in opium importation to China.45
- The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn: Founded in 1888 by Freemasons, Dr. Wynn Westcott, Dr. William Robert Woodman and Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers. This order was perhaps the greatest influence on Western occult magic/mysticism. Aleister Crowley was also deeply involved with this magical society. The Golden Dawn was founded for the practice of ritual magic and its chief influence was a practice known as Enochian Magic.
- The Theosophical Society: founded in 1875, by Madame HP Blavatsky, this secret order was established to study and investigate mediumistic phenomena. This organization was infiltrated by another organization known as the Fabian Society, a British, Socialist group, which promoted the idea of racial superiority, claiming that the Aryan races were decedents of Atlantis, and that they were racially and spiritually superior. The ideologies of this secret society had an enormous influence on Nazi ideals.
- The Thule Society: founded by German occultist, Rudolf von Sebottendorff, to promote his own occult ideals, this secret society promoted nationalism, racial superiority and political ideals. Members of the Thule Society were more interested in racism than in von Sebottendorff’s occult teachings. Following the teachings of the Fabian Society, and distorting those of Blavatsky, the Thule Society also believed that the Aryan races were descendants of Atlantis, and that they were superior. Thule Society members were dedicated to destroying Jews and Communists. Thule Society ideas were adopted by the Nazi party, which was entrenched within the occult at its upper levels.
- The Fabian Society: founded in 1883, this organization came into existence with the purpose of restructuring society and abolishing ownership of private property. It also set out to infiltrate the existing political parties and advance its heavy socialistic, one world agenda. Two people that figured prominently in the early organization of the Fabians were George Bernard Shaw and Sidney Webb. The society was named after the Roman general Fabius who used what is called “gradualism” to wear down his enemies. This strategy was adopted by the Fabians to gradually work their agenda into existence. This is how the Consortium operates. They play chess very patiently. British PM, Tony Blair was a Fabian Society member. The two main symbols of the Fabians are a wolf in sheep’s clothing and the image of two men hammering the world on an anvil. An inscription above this image reads: “remold it nearer to the heart’s desire”. The British Labour party, the London School of Economics and International Court of Justice all sprang from the Fabian Society. The Fabians also played a large role in the formation of the UN. The organization is opposed to individual freedom and private ownership. The Fabian Society gave birth to the Common Purpose movement whose aim is to infiltrate British systems of government and promote the New World Order agenda.
- The Knights of Columbus: this Catholic men’s organization was founded in 1882 and today claims to have around 1.6 million members. The Knights of Columbus is connected to the Catholic Church and the Jesuit Order and is considered the “right arm” of the church in America. Their emblem contains heavy occult themes and the name “Columbus” has significant esoteric meaning. The term comes from the French word columbe, which means “dove.” The dove symbolizes the ancient Babylonian mother goddess called Queen Semiramis, and is also an ancient symbol for the astrological sign of Scorpio. The dove also symbolizes prepubescent children that were used in rituals known as Cagliostro’s Egyptian Rite. Cagliostro was a Freemason deeply mired within the occult, and his Egyptian rite involved hypnotism, mediumship and sacrifice. The symbol of the dove is very significant to the Consortium because of these esoteric meanings, which is why there are so many Consortium-controlled things named after the columbe such as: the District of Columbia, Columbia Pictures, Columbia Broadcasting, the space shuttle Columbia, British Columbia, Columbia University, and the Knights of Columbus. It is also no coincidence that a massacre occurred on April 20, 1999 in Colorado at a high school called Columbine. The Consortium is absolutely obsessed with ritual, and there is much more to the Columbine massacre than the mainstream media has reported.
- B’nai B’rith: this parent organization of the Anti-Defamation League is a front organization that claims to represent “the interests of the worldwide Jewish community,” but is in fact intimately connected to Freemasonry, and their claims to protect the rights of Jewish people is in fact just a cover for their actual agenda in serving the Consortium. B’nai B’rith also apparently played a role in the creation of the notorious Ku Klux Klan.46 This group is also apparently an arm of British intelligence.
- The Order of the Garter: this offshoot of the Knights Templar was created by Edward III in 1348. His name was Windsor, which the current royal family of Britain changed their name to, to conceal their German origins.
There are many other institutions, organizations, secret societies and networks that the Consortium works through to establish its agenda of obtaining the New World Order. The techniques employed to march humanity towards its enslavement are also numerous, and as mentioned, the primary means to establish the directives of the Consortium are done by waging war against the mind. Humanity’s idea of what is real and what is true must be constantly manipulated. Our psychological energy feeds the beast so to speak. It’s crucial to understand that this edifice of power exists only because humanity is tricked into giving their power away to it. It is a massive physical, psychological and emotional manipulation that is occurring.
