The Truth About Albert Pike
Albert Pike and Abraham Lincoln may have been the two most gifted lawyers of their time, and together they played key roles in the Civil War, although on opposite sides. Lincoln may have won the war, but Pike won the peace, as Pike was likely the brains behind Lincoln’s assassination, a conspiracy that’s been covered up ever since. Pike was a great spook you see, and founded a secret society called “Knights of the Golden Circle,” of which John Wilkes Booth was probably a member. He was the most influential Freemason in the history of American Freemasonry, and designed 30 initiation rituals for the advanced degrees he created inside Freemasonry, turning the original three degrees into 33, and investing great ceremonial magic into the culture, which he soon dominated as its American Grand Master.
Although Freemasonry began as a haven for the enlightenment, spreading the doctrine of liberty, equality and fraternity (while often secretly plotting an end to royalty and religion), it would appear that royalty and religion got their meat-hooks into Freemasonry fairly early in the game. The secret societies in Europe engaged in hidden vendettas and secret warfare for centuries, and almost none of this activity has ever surfaced in the mainstream. Many lodges began to wonder what hidden machinations might lurk in the minds of their Masonic masters, or which side they truly represented? The two major combatants in secret society warfare were the Jesuits and the Freemasons, one side controlled by the Vatican, the other by the English House of Lords. Well, “controlled” may not be the right word for the English Grand Masters always held a slippery hold on their connected lodges around the world, many of which were packed with the leading business people and intellectuals of their respective locales. And then, of course, France created its own form of Masonry, as the English were never trusted. In design and execution, the Freemasons and the Mafia are not very far apart, although the Masons have been celebrated for their good works, while adeptly hiding their evil intentions, while just the opposite is true for the Sicilian “Men of Honor.” In reality, however, many of those Sicilians got their inroads with local politicians and judges by becoming Freemasons, and the Masonic Temples are the place where people of all faiths and walks of life can meet knowing all their conversations will remain secret. Masons, after all, are pledged to secrecy and to assist each other whenever possible, a bond of brotherhood as strong as any on earth.
The separation of a recently-formed United States into two warring factions was likely instigated by those masters of war who foster armed conflict in order to sell weapons and keep the governments in-line and deeply in debt. London and the Vatican have employed spooks around the globe for just this purpose for centuries.
Lincoln got to the Presidency by becoming the favorite lawyer of the railroads, many of whom were deeply indebted to the Rothschilds, although they would soon transform into “The Robber Barons,” so you have to wonder what did that transformation do for the European banks that bankrolled their operations? The Civil War created J.P. Morgan, who dominated post-war banking, along with many of the other Robber Barons, most of whom would eventually merge their fortunes to create the American International Corporation, which set-up hundreds of companies to buy up whatever resources were available at the turn of the century. One of these companies was called United Fruit Company.
Pike’s racism rivaled Hitler’s and his Knights of the Golden Circle morphed into the Ku Klux Klan, of which Pike was an original Grand Wizard. He probably even lynched a few unfortunate black men in his time, so deep was his hated of the darker races, although, strangely, Pike became a best friend to Native America, winning a few lawsuits for stolen lands, and bringing some of those tribes into the Civil War on the side of the South as their commanding General, although his meager military victories were eclipsed by his poetry (which was quite popular at the time and well-reviewed by many scholars). His nearly impenetrable book, Morals and Dogma, is filled with the most blatant thefts, lifting freely from a wide variety of sources without bothering to re-phrase a single word, all to create the illusion of his encyclopedic knowledge of the occult and Eastern spirituality.
Most of the stolen material came from one source, Eliphas Levi, who’d been initiated into ceremonial magic by the British Rosicrucians, a German secret society that began during the Reformation by claiming access to ancient secrets (no doubt handed down by the either Templars, Egyptians and/or the Kaballah masters). A Frenchman, Levi was on his way to becoming a Catholic Priest when he got sidetracked by paganism and took the name of a Jew. His biggest legacy was the creation of our modern Tarot cards.
Far as I know, only one author has accused Pike of being a secret British agent, and that would be Anton Chaitkin of the Lyndon LaRouche organization. Anton paints Pike as a Satanist, glutton and human monster incarnate, ignoring the fact Pike was actually considered one of the most gracious and well-mannered gentlemen of his time by many of those who came into contact with him.
The LaRouche organization has picked up where the John Birch Society left off, creating a wide swath of disifno all based on real conspiracy theory, but leading off into one rabbit hole or another. Just enough real info to make the disinfo go down the unsuspecting gullet. So I wouldn’t jump to any conclusions based on what a LaRouchite would have to say. Also, keep in mind LaRouche himself, is a Grand Master in French Freemasonry, a fact he never tries to conceal. Still, if the Civil War was fomented by England to prevent Wall Street from eclipsing London as the center of gravity of global finance, than that feat has to be one of the greatest undercover “mission impossibles” of all time.
The Civil War was sparked by a terrorist named John Brown, the Osama bin Laden of his day, only we celebrate him as a “hero”? Is it worth noting both Brown and Pike stem from Massachusetts? That may or may not be an important detail, although Boston was the undisputed head of the Anti-Slavery Movement, a movement that started in England, and spread to Boston, no doubt via the Tory families who emerged from the Revolutionary War as our Boston Brahmins, many of whom, strangely, made their fortunes running slaves and opium.
But that’s the way spooks play their games. If there’s going to be a social movement against whatever you’re doing, it’s best if you secretly create and orchestrate that movement against yourself right away so that it never does any unintended damage to your personal fortunes.
If you want to read more about Pike, Robert Guffey has just published an entertaining book, Cryptoscatology: Conspiracy Theory as Art Form (Trine Day.) Although an admittted 32nd Degree Mason, Duffey presents a balanced portrait and has a lot of interesting material in his book. The best thing about his work is he maintains a sense of humor through-out.
One tidbit I almost forgot to mention: Pike was charged with treason after the Civil War and because he’d used the Indian tribes to foment terror against the North, he might have even been hung had Lincoln lived. Fortunately for Pike, as one of his first acts as President, Andrew Johnson awarded the Supreme Master Mason and Magus a complete pardon for all his war crimes. Pike went from hiding out in Canada in fear for his life, to being accorded full masonic ceremonies inside the White House, recognizing his prowess in the occult. The incoming President Andrew Johnson, was, after all, a devout Freemason, and, as such, he considered Albert Pike as his guiding authority in all things mystical.
And if that isn’t a prime example of magic in action, then I don’t know what is.
