England had the world’s greatest empire thanks largely to immense coal supplies powering their navy, and coal mines were the biggest bone of contention between France and Germany. But around 1900, a shift in the winds began blowing, as titans of industry realized oil was a more efficient source of energy that allowed battleships to travel farther and faster.
Suddenly, control over oil fields ascended the throne as most valuable resource and there was a world-wide rush to locate new ones. Rockefeller monopolized North American oil, while the Nobels and Rothschilds made deals with the Czar to build refineries in the Caucasus.
Most nations of the Middle East are recent creations, along with those comprising the strategically critical Balkan states. At one time, these countries were united into the Ottoman Empire, and prior to WWI, Germany was their ally, and they were building a crucial Berlin-to-Baghdad railroad through the Balkans. The Balkans are historically the smuggling route through which east and west connect, the drug pipeline into Europe.
The heir to a British goldmine fortune created APOC by investing $500,000 to look for oil in Persia outside the Ottoman Empire. In 1908, he struck pay-dirt in what is now called Iran. Today that company is called British Petroleum.
The discovery of vast new oil fields in the Middle East rearranged the geopolitical agendas of the major powers and ushered in the wars that followed.
War is not some accident or miscommunication, but an extension of economic interests by any means necessary. Vast profits are produced, and winners architect exploitation of crucial resources for decades to come.
This is why a well-funded and highly-organized Balkan independence movement emerged, and two brief wars broke out in the Balkans prior to the start of WWI. These mini conflicts primed the pumps for the invasions and realignments that followed.
British intelligence grew concerned about the rise of a great German empire. And WWI certainly destroyed that possibility for many years.
In 1915, the dominant economic power of North America ( J.P. Morgan), began secretly buying the most important newspapers in preparation to launching a propaganda campaign designed to bring America into WWI on the side of the British.
By the end of the war, the Kaiser had abdicated and Germany accepted responsibility and given harsh fines. The terms were designed to create deep resentments instead of a lasting peace.
Major General Smedley Butler, the most decorated soldier in our history, revealed a plot by the most powerful men on Wall Street to manifest a coup against FDR and install a military dictatorship. Butler had been enlisted to lead a 500,000 man army that would be raised with $3 million in their coffers. Butler played along for a time in order to collect as much evidence as possible, and then took the evidence to Congress.
Congress did their best to cover it up and the men involved famously laughed it off claiming it had been a joke. And to this day we don’t know if it was a real coup they were planning, or a set-up-to-fail coup that would have allowed FDR to declare marital law.
Meanwhile, thanks partly to the birth of their military industrial complex, the USA was surpassing England as the world’s economic powerhouse, and Wall Street was challenging London as the primary financial center.
Wall Street banks immediately began investing millions into building armament factories in Germany, preparing for the next epic battle, which would be constructed around the elimination of the Czar and capture of the Russian oil fields, a feat that would be achieved by funding the Communist revolution.
Sometime around the year 1000, rumors of Christian children being abducted by Jews (who allegedly drained their blood to make matzoh) began circulating around Europe, leading to some mass executions and ethnic cleansing. Images of babies being tortured by Jews were painted on cathedral walls to incite the hatred. For centuries, most Christians had been intentionally kept illiterate and only priests, monks and those of noble birth taught to read and write. Most Jewish children, on the other hand, had been highly educated all along, an imbalance that undoubtedly created envy and suspicion, and may have been a contributing factor to why Jews soon rose to prominence in science.
Manipulating people with “blood libel” scams worked for a long time and kept peasants focused on hating Jews rather than toppling the predatory status quo that enslaved them, but eventually, the story began to fade simply because there never was a shred of truth involved.
But in 1903, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion appeared and alleged that a secret council of Jewish leaders was planning to take over the world by fomenting war for profit, a document initially circulated by Russian secret police. Russia was the world powerhouse in oil at the time and were pumping half the world’s crude, an operation divided between a Russian oil company, the Rothschilds and the Nobels. In America, Rockefeller was making similar moves to capture the North American oil industry.
In 1905, Vladimir Lenin and Alexander Bogdanov created the Bolsheviks, who quickly attracted immense funding from Wall Street, specifically J.P. Morgan and Rockefeller. Within a decade the Czar was dead, Lenin in power, and control of the Russian oil fields up for grabs. Armond Hammer was installed as the go-between for American big business and the new regime.
On November 13, 1918, a strange document (SDDF 861.00/5339) was circulated at the highest levels of the State Department titled “Bolshevism and Judaism.” It included various memes lifted from the Protocols and also alleged the Russian Revolution had been financed primarily by Jacob Schiff along with the Kuhn, Loeb & Company, known agents of the Rothschilds. According to a British intelligence source, there was definite proof Communism was an international movement controlled by Jews. This meme also appeared in Germany, and would eventually be deployed to assist the rise of the Nazis.
If fact, Schiff had been a strong opponent of Lenin and Trotsky and the Rothschilds lost their Russian oil connection with the murder of the Czar. And while it is true nearly 20 percent of the original Communists in Russia were Jewish, most (like Trotsky) disappeared early on and were deported, murdered or sent to Siberia. During WWI, the oil fields of Russia, once the largest producer in the world, remained dormant, something that undoubtedly benefited Rockefeller’s rise to power.
In 1924, after Lenin’s death, Stalin took power and began investing heavily in revitalizing the oil fields. He hired the Koch family to build a series of refineries, which is why they are among the richest in the world today.
So when you pass along those facebook posts alleging the Rothschilds own all the central banks, or that Jews are the source of corruption and evil, just keep in mind this is a well-worn trail blazed by intelligence agents and designed to confuse you. Whenever racial issues are deployed to incite fear, it’s always a hoodwink. Religion is a tool for keeping people brainwashed and by pitting religions against each other, war-for-profit is easily manifested. The masters of war and munitions companies have been running these games for a long time.
Maybe you think banks own themselves, but, in fact, our biggest banks are owned by a small group of investment companies, a concentration of power likely beyond your imagination. Sadly almost nothing is known about the people who own and run these corporations or who they might be answering to (although I can assure you the banking world is peppered with spooks of all stripes). While headlines may talk about people like Donald Trump or the Koch Brothers, they never seem to peer very deeply into our banking system do they? But you can figure out some of this on your own because the data is available to anyone with access to the web. Just type in the name of any bank or Fortune 500 company, and the bigger they are, the more likely they’ll be owned by a combination of the companies below. Lots of people talk about the power of Goldman Sachs, but that company, for example, is owned by Capital Group, Vanguard and State Street.
Vanguard is the biggest mutual fund company in America and their president doesn’t even have a wikipedia page. This is the case with many CEO’s of our most powerful financial firms. What does that tell you about the Brahmins who run the system? They don’t like publicity. In fact, avoiding wikipedia and the media is likely considered a badge of honor in this culture. Frederick William McNabb III makes Philadelphia his home and his connections into the top tiers of the economy are too vast to list. Vanguard is the second biggest stockholder in Bank of America, JP Morgan and Citigroup. How’s that for covering the bases?
Fidelity CEO Edward Johnson III and his daughter Abigail own 49% of the stock of this privately-held corporation. They both went to Harvard and live in Milton, Massachusetts. Fidelity is the third biggest shareholder of Bank of America.
State Street: You won’t find CEO Joseph L. Hooley on wikipedia and he possesses but a lowly BS degree from Boston College, yet his company is the number one shareholder in Bank of America, JP Morgan and Citigroup, as well as the third largest shareholder in Wells Fargo. Check out any major blue chip stock and they are likely big investors. It’s a Boston-based company so you know some old Brahmins are probably associated somewhere along the line.
BlackRock: This is the largest investment management corporation in the world with a name certainly worthy of a proper Illuminati cut-out. Naturally, CEO Laurence Fink doesn’t even have a wikipedia page. Initially, this company was part of the Blackstone Group, but spun off in 1988 by specializing in mortgage-based securities. Then, after the 2008 meltdown, they were given a strategic position in “fixing” the problem they created. They are well-vested in all the biggest banks, being the third largest shareholder in Bank of America, JP Morgan, Citigroup, while coming in fourth biggest in Wells Fargo.
Bank of NY Mellon: This is the oldest investment bank on Wall Street and got an enormous bail-out after the 2008 meltdown. Gerald L. Hassell is a Duke graduate who came up through the ranks to run the firm. I would imagine the New York Tories had a hand in this one although Alexander Hamilton initially founded the bank through his Dutch connections.
Capital Group: David I. Fisher runs this powerful investment company, which formed in 1933 as a renegade to Wall Street. Fisher attended college at Berkeley and, like most of these CEO’s, has no wikipedia page.
Massachusetts Financial Services (MFS): Although started with funds from the Boston Brahmins, this company is now owned by a Canadian Company called Sun Life Financial, which is mostly owned by American Funds. And herein lies the problem of this shell game. You see, there’s obviously an intense concentration of power and wealth that has been accumulated by these dominating investment firms and since they all have invested into each other, while buying up control of most of the blue chip corporations, the real ownerships are nested inside an endless series of boxes. These CEO’s are truly Masters of the Worlds they inhabit and all of them measure their annual compensation packages in the tens of millions of dollars.
Many fake conspiracy sites will try to hoodwink you into believing all these banks are secretly owned by the Rothschilds and to prove this point, they’ll point to an executive officer (not even a CEO) in each corporation that has past experience working for a Rothschild company? I find that logic pretty absurd. Executives of large banks move around and prior employment is no proof of anything. You’d have to look at the actual stock held by relatives of that family. And while I’m sure their holdings are vast, like other banking dynasties, I don’t believe it eclipses the combined wealth of all the other dynastic families of North America and England. Plus the fact that known disinfo groups like the John Birch Society keep pushing the Rothschild meme makes it all the more suspicious. The puppet masters need a managed dialectic to advance their economic agendas, so keeping Bluebloods and dynastic Jewish families at seeming odds is a big part of the op, and those divisions can be played against each other when circumstances warrant. Meanwhile, instead of investigating this nexus of extreme power, our media carefully avoids talking about the owning families or even the chosen CEO’s who run their companies. It’s a shadow world of secret societies and private clubs that you’ll never be allowed into.
Anger is the most reverberating emotion expressed on social networks and spreads farther and faster than compassion, love or empathy, according to a new study that included diagrams and charts to prove this claim. But I have to wonder how much of this is the result of the Internet disinfo machine? When it comes to deep political research, there’s an enormous amount of noise, much of which is created to sheep-dip serious political researchers as wild-eyed tin-foil-hatters if they divert off the approved path of inquiry. There’s an effective blacklist in the media and any reporter who thinks 9/11 needs a new investigation is not going to get published, no matter what topic they might otherwise pursue. Once you cross the magic line and start spouting “conspiracy theory,” you won’t be very employable or even welcome to visit the news room.
Personally, I think what spreads fastest and holds longest are hoaxes. Yesterday the post about the pet Great White Shark in Australia was going around again, as well as “Snowden confirms chemtrails,” both obvious hoaxes that refuse to die because they reverberate so intensely across the disinfo boards.
One of the more believable hoaxes was created as an April Fool’s joke by Cannonfire and asserted Barbara Bush is the love child of Aleister Crowley and Pauline Pierce. Of course, this story played right into a major counterintelligence meme: that the world is run by a cabal practicing Crowley’s concepts of ceremonial magic. You have to wonder what motivation inspired Cannonfire to create this? I guess the point is that the Tin Foil Hat community is easily led off a cliff, but does that justify becoming a pied piper leading the parade?
Cannonfire has a lot of super complex articles on 9/11, the type that require a PhD in physics to decipher. I never get involved in details like that, especially the scientific ones because statistics are so easily manipulated and skewed. For me, the existence of the disinfo system and our new American blacklist on investigative journalism is evidence enough of foul play. Intel will always be three steps ahead of us when it comes to controlling details on a major conspiracy.
When Mark Lane appeared as a Knight in Shining Armor to represent Oswald’s wife pro bono and immediately announced the CIA was involved in killing JFK, no one thought to consider Lane’s history in military intelligence as a sign of possible ulterior motives. When his book came out, however, it was a confusing mess that never revealed the existence of an executive action team at the CIA’s JM/Wave station, a murder squad under the direction of Ted Shackley, David Morales and Bill Harvey.
Very soon Lane associated himself with the founder of the Holocaust Denial movement, another counterintelligence operation designed to inflame racist attitudes. Attempts to delve into the pecking order of the international banking cartel are often dismissed with “the Rothschilds own everything.” Since I’ve seen this meme played over and over by obvious counterintelligence operatives, I’ve come to believe it’s a rabbit hole.
Maybe you’ve noticed the appearance of insane ninja shooters is increasing exponentially, a disturbing trend nowhere so prevalent as in the good old USA? My theory is this unfortunate situation is the result of a perfect storm of three trends: pills for all, violence media for all, and guns for all.
A sideshow to this problem is the way the two major conspiracy websites have jumped on current events as being created by sinister government forces for a hidden agenda. The world is filled with coincidences and you can connect dots all day long that don’t really connect, so that’s an easy game to play. The disinfo machine ignores real info and diverts people into rabbit holes leading nowhere while helping brand researchers as kooks who believe in nonsense. That’s the purpose of disinfo, which is really a well-practiced art the FBI and CIA learned from the Nazis and British intelligence.
To give a specific example: When Sandy Hook happened, it was immediately branded by David Icke and Alex Jones, the two biggest disinfo artists in the world, as an example of a government-inspired plot. According to them, more than one shooter was involved. Initially, they claimed the event was orchestrated to pass Obama’s assault weapon ban. But then, a few days later, it turned out there were no assault weapons at Sandy Hook, just four hand guns. So how does that help pass an assault weapon ban? Just another case of reality blowing a giant hole through a pet theory advanced by Icke and Jones.
And please don’t make the mistake of thinking either one of those two dudes actually knows what’s going on in the world and is on the inside of the real power structure. They only understand one thing: paranoia sells. And that’s really the only aspect of conspiracy theory banksters are willing to bankroll. Secret societies will always seek to control dialogue by inventing extremes. Somebody big in England is behind Icke, just like somebody big is behind Jones in the USA. It could even be the same person, although you can see major differences in their approaches. Icke is pushing the “Rothschilds rule the world,” essentially the same course charted by the John Birch Society in the 1960s. Today we know the JBS was set-up inside Freemasonry and was involved in the JFK assassination cover-up. The JBS was created as an extremist group to hype the Cold War and they promoted the idea the Rothschilds were secretly running Russia, as well as the State Department. In reality, the Rothschilds evolved as the court bankers of Europe.
Jones, on the other hand, talks about the elites but avoids discussion of both Zionism and Opus Dei, two of the primary forces orchestrating world events. You cannot understand what is happening in the world today without studying those two powerful movements.
Antony Sutton, one of the few deep political researchers I trust, claimed the Rothschilds hold about ten percent of the world’s wealth, and the majority is in the coffers of the old money families of Europe and North America. Researching the truth of this is beyond my ability, but I believe anything promoted by the corrupt John Birch Society is far more likely to be a rabbit hole than the actual truth. Yes, in many cases, the man running the bank is Jewish, just like most basketball players are black, but that doesn’t mean Jews own all the money in the bank, any more than black people own the NBA.
The most important financial secret in the world was the recovery of over a trillion dollars worth of gold stolen by the Japanese during WWII. Once recovered, this treasure was hidden inside the world banking system and that crime seems to have been conducted jointly by Opus Dei and Skull & Bones, neither one of which has anyone of Jewish heritage inside the upper levels of its power structure.
The hidden cabal that controls the Federal Reserve hasn’t been this nervous since JFK began printing money not tied to their perpetual debt system. Seems we are reaching a tipping point on the reality this oligarchy doesn’t really deserve a monopoly over our money system. There have been numerous attempts to reform the Fed over the decades and today most of the billions it makes in profit is funneled directly into the Treasury (instead of being divided up amongst the stockholders, like the good old days). Now most of the stockholders are stuck with a measly 10% profit or so. We’re talking millions, not billions.
You can certainly find a lot of garbage about the Fed online, much of it will try to convince you the Rothschilds secretly own the system. I’ve always felt that unproven theory was a limited hangout. The Rothschilds are certainly a big dog in the world banking elite, maybe even the biggest on an individual basis, but do you really believe they have eclipsed the combined fortunes of the old money families of Europe and their relatives in the US? If that were so, the House of Lords would be quickly converting to the Jewish faith instead of Rothschilds in England rapidly becoming Christians to aid their entry into the House of Lords. No, contrary to popular crackpot conspiracy theory, I don’t believe the Rothschilds have taken over the world, although there certainly is a MI6-Mossad-CIA component to our current situation, most of which seem to revolve around oil and opium. The entire hoodwink for the next 50 years has been arranged around a holy war between Arabs and Jews, with the Christians siding with the Jews. They had to invent something to replace the Communist-Capitalist dialectic after that hoodwink collapsed, and jihad versus crusade was the best option available. Right now, the plan is to bilk as much money out of the oil industry as possible before that monopoly on energy runs out. Not because we’re going to run out of oil (Peak Oil is a scam) but because oil will one day finally be replaced by better, cleaner technologies that have been kept in the shadows in order to keep oil on top of the world.
Considering the rapid growth of technology, seems like the entire banking system, so rife with corruption, could be easily reformed if we just made a few changes. First, do we really need cash? In today’s world of smart phones, debit cards and online banking in a cloud, many people are finding cash unnecessary, unless, of course, you’re involved in illegal activity. The elimination of cash would pretty much end money laundering as we know it today.
Another tweak I’d suggest, is the end of bank secrecy for accounts over a certain amount. Let’s see who the big dogs are and what size bones they have. The majority shareholders of all banks, especially the Federal Reserve Banks, should be posted online. And all bank depositors with assets over one million dollars should not be able to cloak their accounts at all. I’d open up all records on the top 1%, including tax returns, banking statements, and anything else that would allow citizen researchers like me to look for fraud. The presumption would be: behind every great fortune is a great crime. So let’s see where those fortunes are so we can investigate the crimes behind them. And if any citizen whistle-blowers actually come up with some real crime, they should be rewarded for their efforts. In this way, many unemployed people could go back to work, catching swindlers and tax cheats and saving the government billions in the process. You wouldn’t have to win the lottery to get rich, you could do it by exposing white collar crime at the highest levels.
Albert Pike and Abraham Lincoln were both lawyers, and both played key roles in the Civil War, although on opposite sides and deploying much different tactics. Along with fellow Freemason John Brown (who was supported in his efforts to spark the Civil War by the founder of Skull & Bones), Pike was a terrorist leader, only instead of rallying blacks he rallied Native Americans to attack and plunder Union settlements. Lincoln may have won the war, but Pike won the peace.
Pike was a great spook you see, and surely had deep connections into a secret society called “Knights of the Golden Circle,” of which John Wilkes Booth (a spook himself) may have been a member, as well as Jesse James. Pike was the most influential Freemason in the history of American Freemasonry, and designed 30 initiation rituals for the advanced degrees he created inside Freemasonry, investing great ceremonial magic into the culture, which he soon dominated as its American Grand Master. Here is how the indispensable Ten Thousand Famous Freemasons describes him (most entries are two or three sentences, while his is among the most extensive):
Albert Pike (1809-1891) Lawyer, poet, soldier, adventurer, author and 8th Grand Commander of the Southern Supreme Council, AASR. b. Dec. 29, 1809 in Boston, Mass. He entered Harvard in 1826, but financial problems prevented the completion of his education. Nevertheless, he became one of the leading intellectuals of that era by self-education. After a time as principal of a school in Newburyport, Mass., he set out for the partially explored regions of the West, traveling by stage to Cincinnati; by steamer to Nashville; on foot to Paducah; by keel-boat down the Ohio; by steamer up the Mississippi; and in 1831 he left with a caravan of ten wagons as one of a party of 40 men under Capt. Charles Bent, q.v., en route from St. Louis to Santa Fe. He arrived at Taos on Nov. 10, 1831, having walked 500 miles from the Cimarron River, where his horse ran away. He remained at Santa Fe until Sept., 1832, and then started with a party down the Pecos River and into the Staked Plain, to the headwaters of the Brazos. Pike, with four others, then made their way to Fort Smith, Ark. Here he again took up the teaching profession, and in 1833 became associate editor of the Arkansas Advocate, purchasing the paper a year later. He then took up the study of law, and being admitted to the bar, sold the paper. In 1839 he contributed to Blackwood’s Magazine, a poem, Hymns to the Gods, which established him as a poet of reputation. As a lawyer, he was recognized throughout the Southwest. In the Mexican War, he was commissioned a captain of cavalry in Archibald Yell’s, q.v., regiment. After Yell’s death, Pike had several differences of opinion with the new commander, which resulted in a bloodless duel between them, but ended his cavalry career. For the next few years he divided his time between the law and his writing, and his residence between New Orleans and Little Rock. When the Civil War broke out in 1861, he cast his lot with the Confederacy, and was named Indian agent and brigadier general of the area, which included the Indian Territory. Once again he differed with his superiors, and when accused of insubordination, he resigned, serving the rest of the war period as a judge of the Arkansas superior court. He practiced law in Memphis, Tenn. for two years before moving to Washington, D.C. at the beginning of his term as sovereign grand commander of the Southern Jurisdiction AASR. He was raised in Western Star Lodge No. 2, Little Rock, Ark in Aug., 1850, when he was 40. Two years later (Nov. 4, 1852), he became charter member and first master of Magnolia Lodge No. 60, Little Rock. On Oct. 4, 1880 he affiliated with Pentalpha Lodge No. 23, Washington, D.C. While in Arkansas he served on many grand lodge committees, including Masonic Law and Usage; Foreign Correspondence; Library; By-Laws, and was a trustee, and subsequently president, of St. John’s College, established by that grand lodge. Exalted in Union Chapter No. 2, R.A.M. of Little Rock, Nov. 29, 1850, he became the first grand scribe of the Grand Chapter of Arkansas, and grand high priest in 1853-54. He was first commander of Hugh de Paynes Commandery No. 1, K.T. of Little Rock. Received the R. & S.M. degrees in Columbia Chapter, R.A.M., of Washington, D.C. On March 20, 1853 he received the AASR (SJ) degrees, 4°-32° at Charleston, S. Car, from Albert G. Mackey, q.v., and received the 33° in New Orleans in 1857. The following year he was elected an active member, and sovereign grand commander (Jan. 3, 1859). In this position he did much for that rite. As one has said, “He found the Scottish Rite in a cabin and left it in a temple.” He rewrote the AASR ritual, as well as many Masonic books, including Morals and Dogma. d. April 2, 1891, and is buried in the House of the Temple, Washington, D.C.
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 historical secret society warfare are supposed to be the Jesuits and the Freemasons, one side controlled by the Vatican and created the Illuminati, while the other became rules by the English House of Lords, although 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 Sicilian men-of-honor 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 Sicilians. In reality, however, many of those Sicilians got their inroads with local politicians and judges by becoming Freemasons, and masonic temples were 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 Illuminati may have been a Jesuit conspiracy to infect masonry from within, and I say that because the University that created the Illuminati was run by Jesuits, who realized early on that controlling education was the key to molding the future. So it’s possible the Vatican and House of Lords conspired to foment the bloody French Revolution.
Likewise, the separation of a recently-formed United States into two warring factions was quite possibly instigated by the same forces. London and the Vatican have employed spooks around the globe for just this purpose for centuries. The terrorist who helped spark the war, John Brown, was supported by William H. Russell, heir to the Russell opium fortune and founder of Yale’s Order of Skull & Bones, and you can trace a line from Skull & Bones to Illuminati central in Bavaria. What complicates matters is the Illuminati was founded by lay professor at a Jesuit university and recruited primarily through Freemasonry.
John Brown (1800-1859) American abolitionist fanatic, regarded by some northern sympathizers as a martyr. Brown’s cause was glorified by the famous marching song, John Brown’s Body. He was a Freemason who later turned anti-Mason. b. May 9, 1800, he was executed on Dec. 2, 1859 in Charlestown, Va. From 1856 on, he was obsessed with the idea of abolishing slavery by force. When a pro-slavery massacre occurred at Lawrence, Kans., Brown killed five slavery adherents at Pottawatomie, Kans. in retaliation. He next made a heroic stand at Osawatomie, Kans. against a raid by pro-slavery forces from Missouri. He conceived a plan of establishing a new state as a refuge for negroes. With help from Massachusetts abolitionists, he seized the government arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Va. in 1859, intending the action as a signal for a general insurrection of slaves. Overpowered and convicted of treason, he was hanged Dec. 2, 1859. Brown was raised in Hudson Lodge No. 68, Hudson, Ohio, on May 11, 1824, serving as junior deacon in 1825-26. His uncle was the first master of the lodge. Shortly after 1826 he moved to Pennsylvania and with the anti-Masonic movement, he renounced Freemasonry and continued to do so on every possible occasion. His son, John Brown, Jr. became a Freemason and was buried with Masonic honors. His daughter, Sarah, once told a biographer that Brown had stated that “the forms of the initiatory ceremonies of the Masons struck him as silly,” and in a negro newspaper Brown wrote, “another of the few errors of my life is that I have joined the Freemasons, Oddfellows, Sons of Temperance, and a score of other secret societies instead of seeking the company of intelligent, wise and good men.”
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 assisted the rise of J.P. Morgan, who dominated post-war banking, along with seven or eight others and they eventually merged their fortunes to create the American International Corporation, which soon birthed hundreds of companies to buy whatever resources were available worldwide. One of these was United Fruit Company.
Pike’s racism rivaled Hitler’s and he was a founding Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. He may have lynched a few unfortunate black men in his time, so deep was his hated of the darker races, although, strangely, he became a best friend to Native America, winning lawsuits for stolen lands, and bringing some 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 phony ancient secrets. 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. Not to mention the John Birch Society was founded by Freemasons and members of the Council on Foreign Relations. In controlled dialectics, the fox is always put in charge of the hen house. Notice the Birch Society was organized similar to the masonic lodges, with 40-50 members in each cell, their identities kept completely secret. They are famous for having high-ranking masons and Mormons in their ranks.
If the Civil War was fomented to prevent Philadelphia from eclipsing London as the center of global finance, that feat has to be one of the greatest undercover mission impossibles of all time. And notice the American banking center shifted during the War to Wall Street.
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 fortune.
If you want to read more about Pike, Robert Guffey has 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 hanged 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.
