THE ILLUMINATI – TRIUMPH OF TREACHERY
On the night of Wednesday, the first of May 1776, three men gathered at the house of a young law professor, Adam Weishaupt, in the Bavarian town of Ingolstadt.
They had decided to found a secret order to undermine the social system, at first called the Orden der Perfektibilisten (The Order of Perfectibilists). Weishaupt had been working on the plans for this order ever since 1770.
Among the three guests were two of Weishaupt’s students: Prince Anton von Massenhausen, who had helped work out the rules of the Order, and Franz Xaver Zwack, only registered as a member on the 22nd of February 1778.
There was also another man who later went under the pseudonym Tiberius, though nothing more is known about him. The historian Nesta Webster (actually Julian Stern) claimed that the French Count Honore Gabriel Riqueti de Mirabeau, a member of a Dutch Masonic Lodge, was also among the founding members.
All the members used pseudonyms in connection with their work. Weishaupt called himself Spartacus, Massenhausen became Ajax and Zwack Cato. The historical Porcius Cato had demanded the total destruction of the city-state of Carthago. Mirabeau was called Arcesilas, but in 1786 his alias became Leonidas (Nesta H. Webster, “Secret Societies and Subversive Movements”, London, 1924, p. 205).
Mirabeau was a famous French orator who had contracted enormous debts. Weishaupt came into contact with Mirabeau through certain Jewish bankers. Mira-beau was blackmailed into joining the Illuminati. (Nikolai Dobrolyubov, “Secret Societies in the Twentieth Century”, St. Petersburg, 1996, p. 23.)
Cities and areas that were important to the Illuminati were given ancient names:
Ingolstadt was called Ephesus, Munich Athens, Bavaria Achaia, Vienna Rome, Landshut Delphi, Austria Egypt and so on.
With the help of confiscated documents, it can be seen that the Illuminati used the Persian calendar, where October was called Meharmeh, November Abenmeh, December Adarmeh, January Dimeh, etc.
The lawyer Franz X. Zwack received his doctor’s degree and became advisor to Count Salm in Landshut where a great deal of the Illuminati’s archives was brought.
Not long afterwards, in 1779, the Order was renamed Orden der Illuminaten. Their primary watchword was: “The Illuminati must control the world!” But first Adam Weishaupt wanted a German unification. In 1779, Spartacus (Weishaupt) had written a letter to Marius (Jakob Anton von Hertel) and Cato (Zwack) and suggested a change of name.
They intended to call themselves “Bienenorden” (Order of Bees) but they kept in “Orden der Illuminaten” in the end. (“Einigen Originalschriften des Illuminaten-ordens” / “Collected Original Writings of the Illuminati Order”, Munich, 1787, p. 320.)
The Illuminati (“The Illuminated Ones”) eventually became a powerful und despotic organisation in Bavaria. Its members included Baron von Thomas Bassus, Marquis Constantin Costanzo, Baron Mengenhoffen, Friedrich Munter and other influential people.
The Order was founded on approximately the same principles as the Jesuit Order.
Adam Weishaupt had worked five years to develop a system, which suited him. The Order was divided into three classes (the Jesuits had four). The first class was for novices and the lesser illuminated (Minerval), the second for freemasons (including the Scottish Knights), and the third, the mystery class, was comprised of priests, regents, magicians and a king (the Jesuits had a general).
Their goal was to impose Novus Ordo Seclorum: the New World Order.
The Ideological Background of the Illuminati
In 1492, the Alumbrado (The Enlightened) movement was founded by Spanish Marranos (baptized Jews who secretly kept their Talmudic faith) and a similar organization was founded in France in 1623 – “Guerients” who changed their name to Illuminati in 1722.
The Spanish authorities attempted to stop the Alumbrado movement as early as 1527 when Ignatius Loyola was temporarily arrested for his activities with the Illu-minati.
Loyola (Inigo Lopez de Regalde), who was of Jewish blood, was born in the 1490s. In 1534, he founded his own order – the Jesuits – taking out a loan for the purpose. The Pope acknowledged the Jesuit Order on the 5th of April 1540.
Benjamin Disraeli, author and prime minister of Great Britain in 1868, and 1874-76, himself a Jew, wrote in his book “Coningsby” (London, 1844) that the first Jesuits were Jews. In this new order, all members were under Loyola’s surveillance.
It was the Jewish Jesuit Cardinal Roberto Bellarmino (1542-1621) who ordered the philosopher Filippo Giordano Bruno burnt at the stake on the 17th of February 1600.
In 1771, 23-year-old Weishaupt met Kolmer, a Danish Cabbalist Jew who had just returned from Egypt. Kolmer initiated Weishaupt into the secrets of Osiris magic, the Cabbala and the Alumbrado movement.
Nesta Webster assumed that he had been known in Italy as Altotas, Cagliostro’s master. Kolmer’s occult knowledge made a deep impression on Weishaupt, who later chose the Egyptian pyramid as the Illuminati’s symbol of power, probably using an illustration from the book “Pyramidography” (1646) by Jean Greaves, professor of astronomy at Oxford.
One year earlier (1770), Weishaupt had been given a post as lecturer in canon law at the University of Ingolstadt. He later received his doctor’s degree and in 1773, at the age of 25, became a professor at the same university. During a short period he even held the post of principal. In 1800, the university moved to Landshut and from there to Munich in 1826. It was no coincidence that the Order of the Illuminati was founded on the first of May.
Among the Cabbalist Jews, this date, 15 (1.5), symbolized the sacred number of Yahweh and so became their occult holiday. According to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the first of May – the day following Walpurgis Night – is when the dark mystical forces are celebrated.
At this time a young Jew named Mayer Amschel (born February 23rd, 1744) was being tutored to become a rabbi. Amschel lived with his parents in the Jewish ghetto of Frankfurt am Main.
He later took the name Rothschild. It was Mayer Amschel Rothschild who convinced Weishaupt to wholly accept the Frankist Cabbalist doctrine and who afterwards financed the Illuminati.
Rothschild had given Weishaupt the task of reestablishing the old Alumbrado movement for the Cabbalist Jews. Theoretical Cabbala embraces only secret teachings about God and nature. But practical Cabbala (such as Frankism) attempts to affect earthly matters. It involves the use of amulets and magic numbers as well as the conjuring of evil spirits. Both the Talmud and Midrash contain Cabbalist information. (“Ancient Oriental and Jewish Secret Doctrines”, Leipzig, 1805.)
Jakob Frank (1726-1791) was the most frightening phenomenon in Jewish history, according to the Jewish professor Gershom G. Scholem. His actions were totally immoral.
Rabbi Marvin S. Antelman shows in his book “To Eliminate the Opiate” (New York, 1974) that there was a clear connection between Frankism and Weishaupt’s Illuminism. The goal of the Frankists was to work in secret to establish Jewish world supremacy. Professor Scholem has clearly documented that they achieved extensive political power.
Jakob Frank (actually Leibowicz) was born in 1726, in Polish Galicia. He officially converted to Catholicism but this was just camouflage. Jakob Frank was jailed in 1760 for continuing to teach the Cabbala (Zohar) and for practising secret Jewish rituals. In 1773, the Russians attacked the region of Poland where Frank was held prisoner. He was released and moved to Offenbach (near Frankfurt am Main) in Germany where he began to lead a luxurious and wild life.
His deeds were evil, his personality nefarious. This information comes from Professor Gershom G. Scholem’s books “Cabbala” (New York and Scarborough, 1974), Sabbatai Zevi” (New Jersey, 1973) and “The Messianic Idea in Judaism” (New York, 1971).
Jakob Frank summed up his doctrine in his book “The Words of the Lord”.
He asserted that the creator God was not the same as the one who had revealed himself to the Israelites. He believed God was evil. Frank proclaimed himself as the true Messiah. He vowed not to tell the truth, rejected every moral law, and declared that the only way to a new society was through the total destruction of the present civilization. Murder, rape, incest and the drinking of blood were perfectly acceptable actions and necessary rituals.
Frank was one of those refractory Jews who worshipped devils. The extremist Jews were particularly fond of a devil called Sammael. (C. M. Ekbohrn, “100 000 frammande ord” / “100 000 Foreign Words”, Stockholm, 1936, p. 1173.)
Joseph Johann Adam Weishaupt was born on the 6th of February 1748 in Ingolstadt, by the Danube, in Bavaria, into an assimilated Jewish family. (Pouget de Saint Andres, “Les auteurs caches de la revolution francaise”, p. 16.) His father was a professor at the University of Ingolstadt. (“The Trail of the Serpent”, Hawthorne, 1936, p. 68.)
He was educated in a Jesuit monastery and studied law, literature, and atheist philosophy. In 1773, the twenty-five-year-old Weishaupt left the Jesuit Order. This may have been because he had developed his independent ideology, but the subsequent dissolution of the Jesuit Order in 1773 by Pope Clement XIV may also have been a factor.
The Jesuit Order in France, Spain, Portugal, Naples and Austria was dissolved.
A few years later, Weishaupt’s “Perfektibilist” Order began to work against the Roman Catholic Church. In 1814, however, the Jesuit Order was re-established and through new infiltrations became more powerful than ever before. In 1775, Professor Weishaupt became a member of the lodge Theodor zum guten Rat within eclectic freemasonry.
Later, Weishaupt was to use this foothold in Munich to allow his Illuminati to infiltrate all the other Masonic lodges, due to the fact that he wielded great influence over the lodge through its Grand Master, Professor Franz Benedict (Xaver) von Baader, who had joined the Illuminati.
It was Baron Adolf von Knigge (born 16th October 1752 in Breden-beck, died 6th May 1796 in Bremen), Adam Weishaupt’s closest collaborator, who later helped him to gain entrance to different Masonic organisations. (Pat Brooks, “The Return of the Puritans”, North Carolina, 1976, pp. 68-69.) In 1777, he received the highest degree of the Knights Templar (Knight of Cyprus) in Hanau. The 27-year-old Knigge joined the Illuminati in Frankfurt in 1780 under the alias of Philo (the original Philo was a Jewish scholar).
The Illuminati began to work especially actively after the entrance of Adolf von Knigge in July 1779. Baron von Knigge also wrote the book “Concerning Association with People”. He brought together many powerful men.
It was largely thanks to Philo that the organization spread through the whole of Germany. Both financial and sexual favors were used to gain control of people in high places.
In time, the Illuminati won control of every Masonic order in the world. Important financiers joined the organization: Speyer, Schuster, Stern and others. The Jews had therefore gained a very powerful position.
Their base of operations was Frankfurt am Main.
In Hamburg, a powerful Jewish-Cabbalist family grew forth.
Their name was (Samuel Moses) Warburg and they also joined this conspiracy of world supremacy.
The Jesuits had taught Weishaupt much, not least their doubtful morals.
He encouraged his closest collaborators to use the lie as a tool and to avoid giving the public any true explanations. The leaders of the Illuminati saw to it that their most dangerous opponents and others who might be a threat to the secrets of the Order were poisoned. (Gerald B. Winrod, “Adam Weishaupt – a Human Devil”.)
Weishaupt got his wife’s sister pregnant and, not being able to pay 50 marks for an illegal operation, he unsuccessfully tried to bring about an abortion by the use of drugs. A boy was born on the 30th of January 1784.
Later, Weishaupt suddenly became rich…
In 1777, the Illuminati began to co-operate with all the Masonic lodges (especially the Grand Orient) in order to infiltrate them. The Duke of Brunswick, Grand Master of Germany, said in 1794 that the Masonic lodges were controlled by the Illuminati. When Weishaupt became a member of the Grand Orient, the lodge was backed financially by Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812), according to the British historian Nesta Webster.
Bernard Lazar, a well-known Jewish author, wrote in his “L’Anti-semitisme”, in 1894, that exclusively Cabbalist Jews surrounded Weis-haupt. Confiscated documents show that of 39 Illuminati holding lesser leading positions, 17 were Jews (i.e., 40%). The higher one looked in ranks, the larger was the percentage of Jews.
Even the fact that the Illuminati headquarters in Ingolstadt were later converted into a synagogue was symbolic of this conspiracy. Lazar stated that all these Jews became the agents of revolution because they had “revolutionary souls”. There were four especially important Jews in the Illuminati leadership: Hartwig (Naphtali Herz) Wessely, Moses Mendelssohn, the banker Daniel von Itzig (1723-1799) and the businessman David Friedlander. (La Vieille France, 31st of March, 1921.)
All of the initiated had taken a vow “to eternal silence and undeviating loyalty and total submission to the Order “.
Each member had to promise:
“I pledge to count what is best for the Order as my own best, I am ready to serve it with my personal fortune, my honour and my blood… the friends and enemies of the Order shall also become my friends and enemies…”
Lastly, each new member was warned:
“If you are a traitor and a perjurer, then know that the brothers shall take up arms against you. Do not hope to flee or to find a place to hide. Wherever you are, shame, 26 contempt and the wrath of the brothers shall pursue and torment you to your innermost entrails.”
Most members were led to believe that the lower degrees of mystery they had reached were the highest. Few members had been informed about the true purpose of the Order.
The Illuminati’s codex was presented in Masonic terms and prescribed lies, treachery, violence, torture and murder in order to reach all its goals. Many members believed themselves to be working for an improvement of the world. They never guessed that Weishaupt’s true purpose was to establish Novus Ordo Seclorum, a global program for world domination.
The Protestant princes and rulers in Germany were well disposed to Weishaupt’s official plan to destroy the Catholic Church and they sought membership in his Order. Through these men Weishaupt gained control over the Masonic Orders, into which he and his other Jewish cronies were initiated in 1777. To prevent the rulers from understanding the true aims of the Illuminati, he forestalled their contact with the higher degrees.
During the year following its founding, the Order was spread exclusively through southern Bavaria.
Later, it gained a foothold also in Frankfurt am Main, Eichstadt and other cities, according to “Vagledning for frimurare” / “Guidance for Freemasons”, Stockholm, 1906, p. 166. Officially, the Illuminati were supposed to spread virtue and wisdom, which was to subdue evil and stupidity. They wanted to make great discoveries in all branches of science. The Illuminati were to be cultivated into noble, eminent people, also according to “Guidance for Freemasons”.
In time, the following men joined the Illuminati:
- the bookseller and writer Christoph Friedrich Nicolai (1733-1811), whose alias became Lucian
- Duke Ernst von Gotha
- Heinrich Pestalozzi, whose pedagogic system Lenin’s wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya, began applying in Soviet Russia
- Duke Karl August
- Baron Herbert von Dalberg
- Count Stolberg
- Baron Tomas Franz Maria von Bassus (whose alias became Hannibal on the 13th December 1778)
- the author, folklorist and philosopher Johann Gottfried Herder (1744-1803)
- the Jewish author and prominent freemason Johann Christoph Bode (1730-1793), whose pseudonym was Amelius
- Ferdinand of Brunswick
- Professor Semmer from Ingolstadt
- the philosopher Franz Baader from Munich
- and others….
Adam Weishaupt began to work especially closely with the Jewish Masonic leader Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786).
Mendelssohn became, so to speak, Weishaupt’s invisible guide. Moses Mendelssohn was officially known by the Jews as a poor writer who became one of Germany’s fore-most philosophers during the “age of enlightenment”. He called himself a philosopher and a cultural personality. Officially, Mendelssohn’s aim was to “modernise” Judaism so that the public might accept the Jews when they ostensibly gave up Talmudism and “assimilated” to the western culture.
The Illuminatus Mirabeau wrote a book in 1787 about Moses Mendelssohn’s political “reforms”, to spread even more fantastical myths about him. In secret, however, Mendelssohn encouraged the Jews to faithfully keep to the beliefs of their fathers.
He led the Illuminati in Berlin.
The First Disclosures
From 1781 on, the resistance to Adam Weishaupt’s movement started to grow.
The first official attack on the Illuminati was made in 1783, 215 years ago. A rejected candidate, the bookseller Johann Baptist Strobl from Munich, was the first to raise the alarm. Weishaupt immediately declared that the man was an uninformed slanderer, rough in manners and speech.
But others came after Strobl: Professor Westenrieder and Danzer also warned about the Illuminati’s true activity, according to “Vagledning for frimurare” / “Guidance for Freemasons”, Stockholm, 1906, p. 166. The Duchess Maria Anna and professor Joseph Utzschneider at the Military Academy in Munich (who had left the Illuminati in 1783) also came out with public warnings.
In 1784 the Order already had 3000 members spread over France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Hungary and Italy. Eventually, several members left: Zaupser and professors Grunberg, Renner and Cosandey from Munich. On the 1st July 1784, even von Knigge gave up all his responsibilities within the Order due to a conflict with Weis-haupt. The latter, though he totally accepted Philo’s (von Knigge’s) new, polished plan of reforms, still wanted to make additions and changes here and there. Philo was later to return.
Strobl’s company began publishing several polemical pieces aimed at the Illuminati. It is sufficient to mention: “Babo, Gemalde aus dem menschlichen Leben” (“Babo, Impressions from Human Life”).
These publications worked with planned effect. When a more conservative and patriotic regent, Duke Charles Philipp Theodore (1724-1799), reached power in Bavaria, he issued a ban on secret societies on 22 June 1784. The Illuminati and the freemasons closed their lodges.
The freemasons sought to defend themselves publicly. The Illuminati even offered to present all their papers and allow themselves to be subjected to public trial but nothing helped.
On the 11 February 1785, Weishaupt was discharged and forbidden to live in Ingolstadt and Munich. At the same time, the university was informed that Weishaupt would be arrested. On 16 February, he went underground and was hidden by his Illuminati brother Joseph Martin, who worked as a locksmith. A few days later he fled from Ingolstadt to Nuremberg dressed in the working clothes of a craftsman.
He stayed in Nuremberg a short while and then traveled on to the free city of Regensburg where he continued his activities, but then a stroke of fate occurred that put the police on the Illuminati’s tracks. (Countess Sofia Toll, “The Brothers of the Night”, Moscow, 2000, p. 291.)
During the inquiry, more and more terrible evidence against the Illumi-nati appeared, but they continued their activities despite the ban. Therefore, on March 2nd 1785, a further decree was issued which made possible the confiscation of the Illuminati’s assets.
On 20 July 1785, the courier of the Illuminati Jakob Lanz (who worked as a priest) was hit by lightning in Regensburg and died. Weishaupt was together with him. Lanz intended to travel on to Berlin and Silesia and received his last instructions from Weishaupt before he died. He had sewn in a list of Illuminati and some compromising papers in his priest’s robe. Weishaupt did not know about this and became the victim of his own conspiracy. (Countess Sofia Toll, “The Brothers of the Night”, Moscow, 2000, p. 291.)
The local police found other important documents at Lanz’ house, including detailed instructions for the planned French revolution. Some of the papers were addressed to the Grand Master of the lodge Grand Orient in Paris. Everything was handed over to the Bavarian government and on the 4th August 1785 a new ban on secret societies was issued. On 31 August, an order to arrest Weishaupt was issued. A price was put on Adam Weishaupt’s head in Bavaria.
Weishaupt fled to Gotha, where the llluminatus, Ernst, Grand Duke of Saxe-Gotha, could protect him.
He gave Weishaupt the title of Privy Councillor, gave him sanctuary. Weishaupt stayed in Gotha for the rest of his life. He died on the 18th November 1830. A bust of him stands on display in the Germanisches Museum in Nuremberg.
The police began to look for known members of the Order. The Illuminati had managed to infiltrate many important posts in society. For this reason the police investigation was very slow. The raid on Zwack’s house, which had a direct link to the secret Illuminati documents found at Lanz’ house, was only made one year and two months after Lanz was struck by lightning, on 11 and 12 October 1786.
On the llth-12th October 1786, they searched the house of Dr Franz Xaver Zwack (Cato) in Landshut where the Illuminati kept their most important papers. In the following year Baron Bassus’ (Hannibal’s) castle in Sandersdorf was also searched and the police confiscated even more papers concerning the Illuminati’s conspiracy against the whole world.
In these documents, which I carefully studied in the summer of 1986 in the Ingolstadt archives, plans for a global revolution were laid out and these papers clearly stated that this destructive operation was to be the work of secret societies.
Several important men in Ingolstadt and Bavaria lost their posts, some were even imprisoned or expelled from the country – but some of those involved were so powerful that they were spared retribution.
The freemasons did not believe they were given a fair trial, as no defence was permitted.
In the autumn of 1786, the Elector Karl Theodor demanded that the Illuminati cease their activities. They did not.
In 1786, two remarkable books about the Illuminati were published: “Drei merkwurdige Aussagen” (in which Professors Griinberg, Cosandey und Renner testified) and “Grosse Absichten des Ordens der Illuminaten” (“Great Purposes of the Order of the Illuminati”) with Professor Joseph Utzschneider’s testimony.
After a lengthy inquiry, the Elector ordered two works containing confiscated secret documents to be printed under the titles: “Einige Originalschriften des Illuminaten-Ordens” and “Nachtrag von weitern Originalschriften” (“Some Original Documents of the Illuminati Order” and “Supplement of Further Original Documents”).
These books were sent to the governments in Paris, London and St. Petersburg, but were not taken seriously (until it was too late). Johann Baptist Strobl also printed a new collection of documents concerning the Illuminati in 1787. According to “Guidance for Freemasons”, Weishaupt, von Knigge, Bode and the other “most distinguished Illuminati” were noble-minded, honest and well-intentioned men who aspired towards goodness and justice.
Some truly lofty cultural personalities allowed themselves to be fooled by the skilful Illuminati propaganda. Adam Weishaupt, as a skilled propagandist, had previously written the books “An Apology for the Illuminati” (1786), “Das Verbesserte System der Illuminaten” / “The Improved System of the Illuminati” (1788), “Spartacus und Philo”, (1794), and others.
When the Illuminati were banned on 4 August 1785, Zwack fled to Augsburg and from there to Weslar. After the death of the Elector, Zwack returned to Bavaria, where he was reinstated as a civil servant. Von Knigge travelled to Bremen, where he died as a British officer on 6 May 1796. Several other members were dismissed from their posts. All according to the Grand Master of the Illuminati, Leopold Engel.
Even the great poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe became a freemason in 1780 and joined the Illuminati somewhat later in the 1780s. His alias within the Order was Abaris. (“Geschichte des Illuminaten-Ordens” / “History of the Order of the Illuminati” by Leopold Engel, Berlin, 1906, pp. 355-356). But eventually he was able to see through their deception.
The Illuminatus Goethe wrote to Bode, a fellow member, on the 22nd June 1784:
“Believe me, our moral world is undermined by sub-terranean tunnels, basements and sewers, like a large town usually is, without anyone usually thinking of their connections. It is comprehensible to me or any other enlightened person if smoke sometimes rises from a crack or if strange voices are heard… “
The Murders of Schiller and Mozart
The great poet and playwright Friedrich von Schiller moved to Mannheim on the 27th July 1783.
In June 1784 Christian Gottfried Korner (17561831), an important Illuminatus, sent Schiller a letter suggesting he join the Illuminati. Korner saw to it that all Schiller’s debts were paid off and following this, he joined the Order.
An Illuminatus was bound by the codex of the Order:
“I shall perform an action, if asked by the Order, which I may not consent to, inasmuch as it (when seen as a whole) would truly be wrong. Furthermore, even if it might seem so from a certain point of view, it would cease to be improper and wrong if it served as a means to thereby achieve blessedness or the final aim of the whole.”
This quote comes from the documents of the Order which were taken during the police search of Baron Bassus’ castle in Sandersdorf and later published under the collective title “Nachtrag von weitern Originalschriften” in Munich, 1787.
Two defectors from the Order – Professors Cosandey and Renner – also confirmed in April 1785 that an Illuministic principle was “the ends justify the means”.
It was only later that Schiller was able to see through the deception. Deception and blackmail were the order’s ways to reach its aims. Weis-haupt had advised his closest Illuminati brothers:
“Devote yourselves to the art of deception, the art of disguising yourselves, of masking yourselves, spying on others and perceiving their innermost thoughts.”
To make sure that the secrets of the Order were not leaked, Weishaupt created a secret police corps within the Order which he called the “insinuating brothers”.
These worked in the same manner as the Bolshevik’s Cheka and its successors: denunciation, provocation, blackmail and terrorism. The “insinuating brothers” acted with full force during the reign of terror which is called the “Great French Revolution”, which was largely the work of Illuminati agents. Following the French Revolution, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe declared his detestation of it to Eckermann.
He said that all sudden changes brought about by violence were repugnant to him because they went against the order of nature (“Goethe” by Karl Vietor, Stockholm, 1953, p. 100).
Naturally, Friedrich von Schiller could not suspect that Heinrich Voss, a young doctor who took care of him, was one of the “insinuating brothers” who reported everything he heard and saw to Weishaupt. Schiller, Pestalozzi and several other Illuminati from Germany were given French citizenship as “prominent foreigners” in 1792. Schiller read about this in the newspaper Moniteur.
After seeing through the Illuminati’s evil nature, Schiller planned to write a play called “Demetrius”, the working title of which became “The Bloodbath in Moscow”. This play was to uncover some of the atrocities behind the scenes of those in power.
Heinrich Voss reported this to Weishaupt who wished to stop this play at any cost. Fortunately for the Illuminati, Schiller died after a long illness at around six o’clock on the 9th of May 1805. Hermann Ahlwardt claims in his book “Mehr Licht” / “More Light” (1925, pp. 60-69) that Schiller was murdered by the Illuminati.
A collective of German and foreign experts (including Sten Forshufvud from Gothenburg and Professor Hamilton Smith from Glasgow) found airsenic in samples of Schiller’s hair. The 45-year-old Schiller’s work was never completed; instead he ended up in a mass grave. (Henning Fikentscher, “The Latest Developments in Research of Schiller’s Mortal Remains”.)
On 5 December 1784, the freemasons asked the brilliant Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart to become a freemason. He joined the lodge Zur Wohltatigkeit (To Charity) on 14 December 1784. He was also a member of another lodge, Zur wahren Eintracht (To True Concord).
This was a double lodge. Soon Mozart reached the very highest degree, the 33rd. Mozart wrote many compositions for Masonic ceremonies. The most important freemasons in Vienna were Illuminati at the same time. In 1783, 36 of the 83 brothers in Zur wahren Eintracht were Illuminati. There were also many conspirators among the members of The Charity.
Mozart’s powerful friend, Baron Gottfried van Swieten was an Illuminatus. Also his closest friend Count August von Hatzfeld was an Illuminatus. In his obituary notice for Hatzfeld in 1787, the local leader of the llluminati, Christian Gottlob Neefe, praised him in Magazin der Musik. Neefe was Beethoven’s teacher. It was for this reason that Beethoven became a freemason and gained close ties to many llluminati, including Gemmingen, who had helped Mozart in Mannheim and recruited him as a member of To Charity.
Mozart was impressed by the official intentions of the llluminati. He did not know any more details.
He had no idea what his influential friends really intended. There is no clear information about whether Mozart even knew that his friends were members of the subversive llluminati. They only revealed their membership to those whom they might be able to recruit.
Adam Weishaupt had taught:
“To some of these freemasons we shall not even reveal that we have anything more than what the freemasons have… All those who are not suitable for the work shall remain in the Masonic lodge and advance there without knowing anything about the additional system.”
(“Einige Originalschriften des Illuminatenordens”, Munich, 1787, p. 300.)
In December 1785, the llluminati’s activities in Vienna were prohibited.
The llluminati were forced to leave their lodges. Despite the ban, they continued to act as ordinary freemasons. They went over to The Crowned Hope. The llluminati Ignaz von Born, Joseph von Sonnefells and Otto von Gemmingen founded a new lodge, The Truth, the Grand Master of which was Born. The llluminati believe that they preach the ultimate truth.
On 14 January 1786, Mozart joined the new lodge The Crowned Hope. But he was not present at the opening ceremony and later he seldom attended their meetings. During this period, Mozart seldom wrote Masonic music.
Mozart belonged to the society where the llluminati still dominated. Only during the last year of his life, 1791, did he produce new pieces of music for the freemasons. This music contained secret codes and moods. Mozart desired true friends. This was why he became a freemason. All his friends were freemasons. As a very sociable person, Mozart could not be alone and therefore needed friends to associate with.
It has been observed that Mozart, due to his membership in Masonic lodges, found it easier to succeed and to make a name for himself in Europe, since high-ranking Masonic brothers supported him. Nearly half of the members of To True Harmony were aristocrats who helped Mozart, for example Esterhazy. Mozart’s publishers were also freemasons: Pasquale Artaria, Cristophe Torricella and Franz Anton Hoffmeister.
Mozart could always count on the brotherly hospitality of the freemasons, and during his sojourns abroad, he always received economic support and free lodgings. During his travels 1787-1791, the freemasons in Prague and other places helped Mozart in various ways. There is written evidence which proves this. Friends among the freemasons played a crucial role in aiding Mozart financially: Lichnowsky, Franz Hofdemel and Michael Puchberg were among his most important creditors.
Mozart, in his turn, helped other freemasons by acquiring loans for them. In December 1787, Mozart was appointed the imperial chamber composer. This gave him requisitions for greater operas. The Illuminati had become a state within the state. Despite all the prohibitions, they continued with their subversive activities against society. At that time, people lacked experience and resources to protect themselves against freemasonry, which was under the influence of the Illuminati.
The prominent Austrian composer Franz Schubert was not a freemason and he died poor and unappreciated.
As a gifted man, Mozart finally managed to see through the Illuminati’s evil, despite the fact that it appeared to be an angel of light. He intended to protect society by founding a secret society with several of his friends, Die Grotte (“The Cave”). Mozart was well aware of the deadly risk he was taking. Already in April 1787, he wrote in a letter to his father that death was actually the friend of man and that he could never lie down to sleep without thinking that he, despite his youth, might not see another day. (Maynard Solomon, “Mozart”, Stockholm, 1995.)
He wished to expose the magic and the conspiracy of the freemasons to the public. For this purpose he intended to use his opera “Die Zauberflote” (“The Magic Flute”), where Sarastro’s prototype was the Grand Master of the freemasons, Ignaz von Born. Mozart had a perfect memory. Once he had heard a melody, he could play it again later without making any mistakes. “The Magic Flute” (1791) contained many revelations about the secrets of freemasonry.
He used the pyramid of the Illuminati, the all-seeing eye, the temple and other secret symbols. These metaphors were later removed. Mozart also used musical means of expression by contrasting lyrical and tragic themes, elegance and folklore, fantastic details and the solid atmosphere of the orchestra. The opera premiered in the autumn of 1791.
The Illuminati could not forgive Mozart for this. “Requiem” was requisitioned from him anonymously in order to celebrate his own death. He was also paid in advance. The freemasons poisoned the object of their hatred slowly. “Requiem” was finished up to the second-to-last row of verse: lacrymosa dies ilia. Sussmayr finished the opus.
Hermann Ahlwardt claimed in his book “Mehr Licht!” (“More Light”) that Mozart was murdered. He died on 5 December 1791, precisely seven years after his initiation into the Masonic lodge. Salieri was later made the scapegoat. Hermann Wagener’s “Staats- und Gesellschaftslexikon” (volume 18, 1865) confirmed that Mozart was poisoned.
In 1990, several doctors tried to claim that Mozart died of a kidney disease. (Dagens Nyheter, 19 September 1990.) But if he had died a natural death, the freemasons would not have taken away Mozart’s body to prevent an autopsy after he died, or laid him in a grave for the poor together with quicklime.
If Mozart had been faithful to the freemasons, he would have been buried with great honors. His hypocritical “Masonic friends” wept crocodile tears. If “The Magic Flute” had been accepted, those in power would not have sent Johann Emanuel Schikaneder, author of the opera’s libretto, to a lunatic asylum, where he died in 1812.
In Austria, freemasonry was forbidden in the middle of the 1790s. Society managed to keep its ban on this subversive movement until 1918, when the freemasons in Austria came to power with the aid of the false socialist doctrine.
The freemasons continue to smear and depreciate Mozart today (for example Milos Forman in his film “Amadeus”).
The Illuminati as Infiltrators
The Illuminati moved freely within the many secret societies of the time seeking to utilize the liberal ideology of freemasonry as a bait for those who lacked knowledge of its true purposes.
“All Illuminati are freemasons but far from all freemasons are Illuminati,” stated Professors Cosandey and Renner from Munich in their testimonies in April 1785.
Only a minority was allowed to reach the highest mystery degrees.
Only those few knew of the true intentions of the order. Cosandey and Renner, together with several other witnesses, claimed that “there was constant talk of the purpose” without any explanation of what this was. Those of the lower degrees (“useful idiots”) were only to obey, without understanding why.
Weishaupt’s plan for seizing power was ingeniously simple. The moulders of public opinion (priests, writers, public officials) were to be made obedient tools, whereupon they would, in Weishaupt’s words “surround the princes”. As “advisors” they were to influence political decisions in favour of the Illuminati’s aims.
When entering the Order, the new brothers had vowed:
“I shall never use my position or post against another brother.”
This corrupt group loyalty did not relate to the brothers as individuals, however; they were only tools for the invisible powers within the Order. It could just as easily be turned against any particular brother if the “purpose” (i.e., Weishaupt himself) decreed it.
So the brothers of the lower degrees were made to provide information (on printed forms) each month on their own actions and those of fellow brothers (the so-called Quibus licet).
The leaders of the Order compiled information from these “confessions” which they could use later against any refractory brothers.
Weishaupt also encouraged the Illuminati to steal or copy secret and government documents. The Order needed these documents for its revolutionary activities but it also wanted the brothers to lose any feelings of loyalty for the established order by having them constantly seeking to betray it. Religion, nationalism, patriotism, loyalty to the ruler, family ties – all such feelings were to be replaced by a single strong loyalty to the Illuminati’s cause.
A defector, Joseph Utzschneider, a professor at the Military Academy in Munich, revealed that the constant preaching against the fatherland disgusted him so much that he left the Order. The supranational socialist power the Illuminati aspired to was summed up in the concept of Novus Ordo Seclorum (The New World Order).
Some of the main points of this program were:
- Suppression of all religion, including all communions and doctrines which could not be subjected as tools for Illuminism.
- Suppression of all feelings of nationality and – in the long term -abolition of all nations and introduction of an Illuministic world-state.
- Successive transference of all private and national property into the hands of the Illuminati. The methods whereby to accomplish this were new taxation laws which Illuministic officials were to introduce. Weishaupt’s original plans also included a progressive income tax (so this is no new invention!) and an even more confiscatory inheritance tax. Karl Marx, too, wanted a high, progressive income tax in his “Communist Manifesto”. The intention was to weaken society.
- An all-encompassing espionage and denunciation system with the “insinuating brothers” as prototype. The symbol of this was the all-seeing eye, an eye within a pyramid, which was the Illuminati’s symbol of power.
- A global moral rule, a complete standardisation of all people’s innermost will, wishes and aspirations beneath “the one will”; the will of the Illuminati.
The Illuminati simply wanted to abolish all forms of ordered government, patriotism, religion and the family to finally set up a world government.
Upright people would never work for such an abhorrent program, so the “normal” Illuminati were filled with fair phrases about love, charity and suchlike which we call “ideology” today. The further up one advanced, the more primitive were the members. The more primitive the individuals, the lower the ideals enthusing them.
Therefore, the Illuminati have used all sorts of ideologies (Nihilism, Liberalism, Fascism) or made them up themselves (Marxism, Communism, Socialism) whereas they themselves were perfectly independent of all ideology.
In 1933 The Greater Soviet Encyclopaedia published a large amount of information about Adam Weishaupt and the Illuminati, but after this year the entries were blatantly inconsequential.
A conference was held at Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s castle in Wilhelmsbad on the 16th July 1782, where the freemasons and Illuminati forged a complete alliance. In this way, the leading secret societies began a closer co-operation with the Illuminati. Thereby, Weishaupt gained no less than three million tools to work with. In time, the Illuminati were to bring death and suffering to hundreds of millions of people.
At the Masonic conference in Wilhelmsbad, a decision to murder Louis XVI of France and Gustavus III of Sweden was made. (Charles de Hericault, “La Revolution”, p. 104.)
The initiative for this conference was Jewish. (A. Cowan, “The X Rays in Freemasonry”, London, 1901, p. 122.) A decision to murder emperor Leopold of Austria was also made at the conference. He was poisoned on the 1st March 1792 by the Jewish freemason Martinowitz. Gustavus III of Sweden was murdered the same month.
The freemasons had gathered in Lyon in 1778 to discuss the coming revolution. Further congresses were held in Paris in 1785 and 1787 and in Frankfurt am Main (where Rothschild had his bank) in 1786. The Illuminati sought control over the press and began placing their infiltrators behind the scenes as “experts”. The Order also wanted to influence schools.
In 1800, the Illuminati were active in Sweden, Austria, Russia and many other countries. Three years earlier, Professor John Robison had written a thorough exposure of the Illuministic plot in his book “Proofs of a Conspiracy” (London, 1797).
The English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley was initially also fooled by the Illuminati’s propaganda, despite Weishaupt having stated fairly distinctly that the purpose of the Illuminati was to act tirelessly until “leaders and nations disappear without violence from the Earth, humanity becomes one great family and the world a residence for sensible people”. But later Shelley came across a copy of Abbe Barruels’ sensational book “Memoirs, Illustrating of History of Jacobinism”, which had been published in 1798.
This book revealed, with the help of certain Bavarian documents, the Illuministic Jews’ conspiracy.
Shelley took these revelations seriously and recommended the book to his friends. He began to regard the Illuminati as evil incarnate and even suggested to Leigh Hunt, the outspoken author that they found a society where the sensible members would stand against “the society of freedom’s enemies”. Shelley afterwards continued to see through the machinations of the Illuminati behind the political scenes.
The Americans Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton became acquainted with Weishaupt’s doctrine in the 1790s. Jefferson and Hamilton opened the Masonic lodges in the United States of America to European Illuminati, despite many voices being raised in warning against this action. Among these protestants was John Quincy Adams, who was later elected president (1825).
He wrote a letter to Colonel William L. Stone revealing how Jefferson exploited the Masonic Order to undermine society.
The Illuminati retaliated by making Adams’ attempted re-election impossible. Adams was subjected to a vicious smear campaign by the national press, which had already come under the control of the Illuminati. Adams also tried to publish a revealing book about the Illuminati but the manuscript was stolen.
Captain William Morgan, who had reached a high degree within freemasonry and had a central position in the order, found some of the terrible secrets of the Illuminati in his Batavia Lodge No. 433 in Batavia, New York.
He became aware of the Illuminati’s goals and travelled around the USA to warn the Masonic lodges. In 1826, he explained that it was his duty to warn the public about the secret plans of the Illuminati. Morgan wanted to expose the shady activities of the Masonic elite in a book. He signed a contract with the publisher, Colonel David C. Miller.
The book, “Freemasonry Exposed”, was published in 1826. This brought the members of the concerned lodges to the verge of nervous collapse. At that time there were 50 000 freemasons in the USA. After the publication of this book, 45 000 freemasons left their lodges. Nearly 2000 lodges were closed. Many of the remaining lodges cancelled their activities.
In the state of New York alone, there were 30 000 freemasons. After Morgan’s book was published, the number of members decreased to 300. (William J. Whalen, “Christianity and American Freemasonry”, 1987, p. 9.)
Richard Howard, an English Illuminatus, was sent to America to murder Morgan. Together with four others he kidnapped Morgan and drowned him in a lake, the intention being to scare other freemasons into submission. (Michael di Gargano, “Irish and English Freemasons and their Foreign Brothers”, London, 1878, s. 73.)
The American historian Emanuel M. Josephson revealed in his book “Roosevelt’s Communist Manifesto” (New York, 1955, p. 24) that the Illuminati’s Columbia Lodge was founded in New York in 1785. Its first leader was Governor DeWitt Clinton, followed by Clinton Roosevelt. In 1786 the Illuminati lodge in Virginia was founded and Thomas Jefferson became its leader. When Weishaupt was exposed in Bavaria, Jefferson defended him as an “enthusiastic philanthropist”. Within a short time the Illuminati had opened fifteen lodges in America.
Thomas Jefferson did all he could to finally get the Illuminati’s pyramid accepted by Congress as the national (great) seal on the 15th September
In 1789, the publicist, statesman and scientist Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), himself a freemason, demanded that the United States of America defend itself against the Jewish immigration and influence with the help of the constitution, since the Jews had become a state within the state. This demand was refused and instead the Star of David became the symbol of the military and police in America.
George Washington, who had become a freemason in 1752 when he was 20 years old, also attempted to oppose the Illuminati’s work in America after he was convinced in 1796 that they posed a threat to the nation. Due to this, Weishaupt had made plans to murder Washington if he became too troublesome. (Neal Wilgus, “The Illuminoids”, New York, 1978, p. 33.)
David Pappen, President of Harvard University, also came out with a warning against the Illuminati on the 19th of July 1798, and somewhat later Timothy Dwight, President of Yale University, followed suit. This led Henry Dana Ward, Thurlow Weed and William H. Seward to form an anti-Masonic party in the United States of America in 1829. The Party took part in the presidential elections in 1832 but 1840 had already outmanoeuvred it…
Weishaupt, like Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) in the Republic of Florence, believed that power should be held exclusively by certain chosen people – all the others were unreliable nobodies.
In his posthumously published book “The Prince” (1532), Machiavelli advocated the introduction of an unlimited dictatorship.
The Jesuits’ Totalitarianism as a Prototype
Some sources, above all Christian, claim that Weishaupt’s ideological prototype was Plato’s “Republic”.
These claims are misleading. Weis-haupt (despite his hatred of them) admired the Jesuits’ tactics, discipline and skill at organisation, their ability to put talents to good use and their devotion to their cause. Since Jesuits educated Weishaupt, he was familiar with their experiences of creating totalitarian societies and his prototype
41 was above all the totalitarian and theocratic rule, which the Jesuits enforced, in spite of the Spanish central power, in Paraguay in 1609. This slave state existed officially for 159 years, up to 1768 when Weishaupt was a twenty-year-old student. The Jesuits called this serfdom encomienda, meaning mission or protection.
The facts I found in Carl Morner’s dissertation “An Account of the History of Paraguay and the Pertaining Jesuit Missions from the Discovery of the Country to 1813” (Uppsala, 1858, pp. 92-102) call for consideration. According to Morner, every mission had a municipal council, which carried out the Jesuits’ orders. The Jesuits followed a kind of communist method, using cunning and violence. Guarani Indians of both sexes and all ages were put to forced labour for the mission.
The Indians did not have any personal property. All the produce was gathered in communal storehouses. Whatever food and clothing the Indians needed, as well as the general needs of the commune, were distributed from these. The Jesuits oversaw the work in a factory manner.
The Jesuits had introduced work duty. The supply of food and other necessities to the Indians depended on the results of production. The power structure was centralised and work was performed in groups. The commune even organized entertainment. When punishment was meted out, the Indians were made to kiss the hand of their executioner, thank him and express their remorse.
The commune leadership was comprised of Jesuit priests from Italy, England and Germany. They had cordoned off the area in a manner reminiscent of a ghetto or Eastern Europe behind the iron curtain. All this strengthened the idea that the Jesuits aspired to create an independent state.
“Savage” Indians from nearby areas were tempted into the enclosed communes with good food, kindness, parties and music. There was no suggestion of the coercion and servitude to come. Then the trap closed around them. The Jesuits distributed the “savages” among the missions on the Parana River. Many fled home into the jungles only to be enslaved again later.
The Indians were turned into helpless, dependent creatures. Their chances for spiritual development were curbed. Special Jesuit priests (like politruks) indoctrinated the Indians not to express their dissatisfaction. Christianity, originally a religion intended for slaves, was used cunningly.
At the same time, they tried to accustom the Indians to a militarist attitude and in this way they became the tools of their masters without any thought or will of their own. Paraguay was an example of standardization, the “right of co-determination”, the factory mentality, communist methods, an iron curtain (the area was turned into a ghetto), politruks, servitude, violence, propaganda and militarism.
An interesting fact is that primarily Central European Jesuits (of Jewish stock) were chosen as leaders of the Paraguay missions.
Information about the real conditions eventually reached the outside world despite all hypocrisy and double-dealing. In 1759, the Jesuits were ordered to release the Indians and abolish their isolation system. Naturally, the Jesuits claimed that all the accusations brought against them were false but they still admitted that something should be done and offered to help the Indians to gradually become independent again. They had no intention of keeping their promise.
Meanwhile, in Europe, the animosity against the Jesuit Order grew and King Carlos III of Spain expelled the Jesuits from all his provinces in 1767. The Jesuits in Paraguay shared the fate of their brothers.
One year later, in 1768, they officially left their missions without resistance -missions, which had, through their communist way of life, stifled the spiritual development of the Indians. Thereby, the Jesuits had gathered experience of indoctrinating the exceedingly freedom-loving Indian nations, and of changing them into obedient slaves in their “commune”.
Within only eight years, in 1776, the Jesuit defector Adam Weishaupt formed the Order of the Illuminati. In actual fact, the Jesuits kept their ghettos until well into the nineteenth century.
Slavery was abolished in 1843.
The Illuminati’s First Coup d’Etat
Adam Weishaupt also worked intensively as a member of the Masonic order Grand Orient to prepare a so-called revolution. (Nesta Webster, “The French Revolution”, London, 1919, pp. 20-21.)
At the same time, the Illuminati had gained a secure footing in France. A Portuguese Jew, Martinez Paschalis, had formed Illuminati groups all over the country up to 1787.
Count Honore Gabriel Riqueti de Mirabeau (alias Leonidas) became the most important Illuminati leader.
Another important Illuminatus, the writer and publisher Johann Joachim Christoph Bode (1730-1793), alias Amelius, had traveled to Paris in the same year to organize the French revolution and to give the go-ahead signal for the rebellion two years later, according to Johannes Rogalla von Bieberstein’s book “Die These von der Verschworung 1776-1945” (Frankfurt am Main, 1978).
As an Illuminatus, Bode had been successful in making contacts with other freemasons, also in Sweden. He published the first Masonic periodical during the years 1116-1119. He also took part in the Masonic convention in Wilhelmsbad in 1782.
Weishaupt had earlier sent the Jew Giuseppe Balsamo (born 8th June 1743 in Palermo), who presented himself under the false title of Count Alessandro Cagliostro, to France so that the Illuminati would control the French Masonic orders. Cagliostro-Balsamo had been recruited in Frankfurt am Main in 1781. (“The Trail of the Serpent”, Hawthorne, California, 1936, p. 163.)
One year earlier he had declared himself leader of the Egyptian freemasonry. Cagliostro also took part in the important Masonic congress in Paris on the 15th February 1785.
Cagliostro was expelled from France in 1786 in connection with the “necklace affair”. He was jailed in Rome in 1789, after attempting to set up a Masonic lodge and was sentenced to life imprisonment. He died on the 26th August 1795.
Rothschild’s most important lackey, Weishaupt, was also sent to Paris with unlimited funds to bribe capable men, organize a revolt and depose the king. A secret committee was set up at the Masonic convention in February 1785 to co-ordinate the actions of the revolution.
- Franz Anton Mesmer
- Charles Maurice de Talleyrand (actually T. Perigord)
- Baron de Gleichen
- Count Louis de Hesse
- and representatives of the Grand Orient from Poland and Lithuania(“The Trail of the Serpent”, p. 73.)
Weishaupt always played a leading role at the Illuminati’s meetings in Paris.
He invited thousands of murderers to Paris.
Many lampoons against Queen Marie Antoinette began to circulate in Paris (Svenska Dagbladet, 27th September 1987). After this, leaflets were spread to incite the people to revolt. The aim of the freemasons was to dethrone the king. The propaganda machine was skillfully tended. Marie Antoinette became a symbol of all evil in the kingdom.
These so-called revolutionaries, who worked to undermine the established order, were often young and many among them were Jews or freemasons, according to the historian Henrik Berggren, Ph. D. (Dagens Syheter, 20th January 1987, Berggren’s “The Grammar of the Revolution”). The three hundred men who seized power under the French Revolution were all Illuminati. (Gerald B. Winrod, “Adam Weishaupt – a Human Devil”, p. 37.)
Marat and Robespierre officially belonged to a “revolutionary” organization, The embittered. The Association of equals had also been active in Paris since 1786. This organization had, in the same year, already decided where to imprison the “enemies of the people”. The revolutionary leaders Mirabeau, Garat, Robespierre, Marat, Danton, Desmoulins and many others were Illuminati, according to Gerald B. Winrod, “Adam Weishaupt – a Human Devil” (p. 36).
According to Nesta Webster, Danton and Mirabeau were originally members of the Masonic lodge Les Amis Reunis (The Reunited Friends), upon which the Illuminati also put their mark. Louis Leon Saint-Just, called one of the fathers of totalitarianism, was also a freemason. The Illuminati took over the Jacobin clubs already in 1789.
152 of these clubs were active on the 10th August 1790, according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica. The Jacobins had a centralized network over all France. The first club was taken over by Weishaupt’s close collaborators Bode and Baron de Busche. The Jacobin funds amounted to 30 million livres in 1791. Honest researchers have pointed out that the history of the Jacobins is in fact a part of the history of the Illuminati. We must not forget that one of Weishaupt’s titles was “Patriarch of the Jacobins”.
The Jacobins also wore red caps, which they called “caps of liberty” or Jacobin caps. According to the still current propaganda, Louis XVI was a merciless and stupid tyrant. In actual fact, he was a kind, well-meaning person, a warmly religious family man and, besides, extremely clever and well-read, according to the French historian Eric Le Nabour’s biography of the king, “Le pouvoir et la fatalite” (“Power and Destiny”). He often read his encyclopaedias.
Louis was so near-sighted that he had difficulty recognizing people only a few yards away. He was a good locksmith and had a knowledge of mechanics, which surprised contemporary experts. He liked carpentry and woodwork. The king had no interest in the glamorous aspects of court life. Louis was 16 when he married the 14-year-old Marie Antoinette. He never traveled abroad.
The Illuminati have managed to present as negative a picture of Louis XVI and his France as possible to the post-revolutionary world. It was not the extravagance and wasteful spending of the court that caused the enormous state deficit, but rather France’s support of the American Revolution. The costs of the war against England became astronomical. Louis XVI was the first head of state of the Old World to recognize this new republic. Gustavus III was the second.
Louis XVI had reformed the judicial system, abolished torture in 1788, humanized the prisons and developed the health service. He paved the way for the fall of the monarchy through constant, small concessions to the freemasons and the Illuminati. The revolution was not organized in a destitute country, but in a flourishing nation.
France’s exports had multiplied ten times during the century. Industry and agriculture had made great advances. The French network of more than 40 000 kilometers of stone-paved roads was admired by an amazed world. (Rene Sedillot, “Le cout de la Revolution francaise” / “The Cost of the French Revolution”, Paris, 1986.)
A presage of the catastrophe to come occurred almost exactly a year earlier, on the morning of the 13th July 1788, when a great storm swept across the country. In a few minutes, the temperature dropped 13 degrees, the sun was hidden and hailstones the size of a baby’s head swept over the richest farming country in the land – 900 000 hectares were affected, trees were uprooted, vineyards destroyed and harvests spoiled.
Over a thousand villages suffered. Roofs blew off and church steeples were brought down. It was not long before the superstitious were proved right – it was a terrible sign of calamity and violent, sudden death. Neither was it a good sign that the price of bread began to rise day by day, hordes of beggars moved along the roads and over 100 000 destitute people found their way to Paris.
Another bad omen was that the winter of 1788-1789 in France was extremely severe. The harbor of Marseille froze over. All traffic between Dover and Calais stopped. The mills iced over and could not grind flour, so that the shortage of bread became disastrous.
This is why the populace could be incited to revolt. The riots went on throughout the winter. On the 1st of March 1789, the 19-year-old lieutenant Napoleon Bonaparte was sent to Dijon to crush a riot but he refused to take the king’s side. He chose to go over to the revolutionaries.
Dark Illuminati forces fomented the riots in the French countryside. The debts owed on the state deficit consumed half of the French budget. All this money found its way into the hands of profiteering Jewish moneylenders. All of these factors were exploited. The time to strike had come for the conspirators, who had united the Jacobin clubs.
As a kind of prelude, Mirabeau called in the Estates-General on May 5th 1789, just after the thirteenth anniversary of the Illuminati’s founding. Marx described Mirabeau as the “lion of the revolution”.
At the beginning of the revolution, there were 282 Masonic lodges in France, of which 266 were controlled by the Illuminati, according to Nesta Webster (“World Revolution”, London, 1921, p. 28). It was these same groups which organised all the riots and troubles.
On the 13th of July 1789, at 11 o’clock, the conspirators gathered at the church of Prix Saint-Antoine where they set up a revolutionary committee and discussed how to organize the revolutionary militia. Dufour from the Grand Orient chaired the meeting. Even the fall of the Bastille was planned by these freemasons, according to Gustave Bord’s testimony. (V. Ivanov, “The Secrets of Freemasonry”, Moscow, 1992, p. 120.)
On the following day, July 14th, people were incited to head for the Bastille fortress with axes in their hands. Contrary to what the Illuminati’s myths say about it, there was no storming and capture of the Bastille. It simply capitulated to the threats of four freemasons. In this way the Bastille was taken. Actually, it was quite meaningless to take the Bastille – the authorities had already decided to demolish it to build a housing area.
Not a single political prisoner was found in the Bastille. There were only seven people incarcerated there. Four of these were infamous frauds and forgers. The young Comte des Solages had been imprisoned at his father’s bidding since he had committed serious offences (incest). Two of the Bastille inmates were mentally ill; one of these was an Irishman with a three foot long beard who claimed to be God himself.
The revolutionaries continued to mislead the people by showing them a printing press, which they claimed, was an instrument of torture. They also asserted that an old suit of armor had been used as a straitjacket for refractory prisoners.
Actually, the prisoners had had it fairly easy. They had their own furniture and were allowed to wear their normal clothes. They were also served several courses for dinner. The dungeons had been used to store wine. The warders had been decent, and visits from friends and relatives had frequently been allowed. The library was of a high standard. The daily walks in the little garden of the Bastille had been pleasant.
The freemasons, headed by Camille Desmoulins, agitated the people more and more intensively with shouts of “Down with the Bastille!” The tumult cost 83 attackers their lives. Another 73 were injured, of which 15 later died of their injuries (Svenska Dagbladet, 25th June 1989). Earlier, the liberal governor had even invited the freemasons’ messenger to dinner! He was tortured and killed by the crowd.
His head was cut off and carried in triumph on a pole through Paris. Afterwards, three officers were murdered and two invalids were hanged. The “revolutionaries” waved their red flags.
Afterwards, agents of the freemasons were sent out across the country. Their main task was to foster panic simultaneously in most of the provinces. During this summer of famine, they began to spread lies in different cities and villages about the roaming bands of beggars and unemployed, calling them bandits and arsonists who killed women and children.
They also lied about an impending attack by the Germans and the English. Within 36 hours these evil rumors had reached the great masses around the country and created an enormous panic on the 22nd of July. The leaflets appeared to be official declarations. They would read: “By order of his Majesty, the burning of all castles and the hanging of anyone who opposes this is allowed from the 1st August until the 1st November.” People were taken in by these lies. The peasants took up arms. They attacked and plundered manors and castles. They burned terriers and other documents and thereby also burned their own history.
Behind the idea of the “Day of Terror” was the freemason Adrien Du-pont, who wanted to exploit the people as much as he could for “revolutionary” reasons, according to Nesta Webster (“World Revolution”, London, 1921, pp. 31-32). To speed up their own seizure of power, the freemasons checked any attempted reforms.
The National Assembly was moved into an old manège on the Rue de Rivoli in October 1789. The radicals sat to the left of the chairman, the conservatives to the right. Hence the Illuminati created left and right as ideological concepts in world politics. Everything that had to do with the left was thereafter considered progressive since it was true Illuminism.
The murders began under Rothschild’s red banner and the Illuminist slogans: “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!” and “Freedom or Death!” In Lyon the “enemies of the people” were shot down with cannons, in Nantes, following the slaughter of 500 children, 144 seamstresses were drowned in old barges on the Loire River.
Their “crime”: they had sewn shirts for the army. People were executed without trial, despite the ostensible introduction of so-called revolutionary tribunals in September 1789. One of the judges presiding at these tribunals was the perverted Marquis Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade, who had been brought straight from a mental hospital. De Sade was responsible for giving the concept “sadism” a name. He also died in a mental hospital.
The Illuminist coup in France brought none of the improvements that corrupt historians try to make us believe in; instead it resulted in an orgy of violence and intrigue.
To make the killing more efficient, the “revolutionaries” began using the guillotine in April 1792. The idea originally came from Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, a professor in anatomy. The doctor and freemason Antoine Louis constructed the killing machine. The record of Henri Samson, the chief executioner, was 21 heads in 38 minutes.
The real reign of terror, however, began on the 10th of August 1792, which was a Yahweh day, when the monarchy was abolished and the Paris commune was established. The commune leadership included 288 Illuminati headed by Chaumette, Danton and Robespierre.
The leaders of the Jacobins and especially of the Enraged (Les Enrages) wanted to destroy all who had shown any misgivings about the “revolution”. Georges Jacques Danton, infamous as a rogue, became minister of justice. He wanted every suspect imprisoned. Many priests and relatives of emigrants were also incarcerated. In this way the leaders of the revolution gained access to enormous assets.
Danton himself became incredibly rich. Earlier, he had taken large bribes from those wishing to save their lives. In the beginning of September 1792, Danton encouraged the mobs to massacre the “enemies of the people”. In Paris alone, 2800 people were murdered between the 2nd and 4th of September, according to the historian Nesta Webster.
Among the victims of this bloodbath was a friend of the queen, Princess de Lamballe, who was attacked in the street and hacked to pieces. Every aristocrat was automatically guilty, but only those who threatened the Jacobins’ position perished. The Jacobins had begun to shut
49 the Masonic lodges – they had played their part. In 1794 there were only 12 lodges left, those most useful to the Illuminati. The king’s cousin, the Duke of Orleans, who had begun to call himself Philippe Egalite (equality) was also guillotined despite having renounced his title and in 1792 leaving his position as Grand Master of the Grand Orient which he had held for 20 years since the founding of the Order.
He knew too much about the preparations for the revolution. He had worked with the Jacobins in the hope that he might be allowed to take the throne as a constitutional monarch.
Philippe Egalite explained why he left the Grand Orient in the following manner:
“… I no longer know who belongs to the Grand Orient. Therefore, I believe that the Republic should no longer allow any secret societies. I no longer want to have anything to do with the Grand Orient and Masonic meetings.”
The Illuminati could not forgive this and exacted their revenge upon him, despite the fact that his vote had been decisive in the process of deposing the king.
Nothing was said about guilty peasants and workers but it was mainly they who suffered from the “revolutionary” punishments. Marat wanted 100 000 people guillotined to scare the enemies of the “revolution”.
Saint-Just promised in the name of the republic to eliminate all adversaries. The Jacobins’ (Illuminati’s) terrorism claimed 300 000 human lives, according to Nesta Webster (“World Revolution”, London, 1921, p. 47). The historian Rene Sedillot, in his book “The Cost of the French Revolution”, calculates that the “revolution”, on account of the terrorism and the civil war, claimed at least 600 000 victims. Charlotte Corday murdered the powerful and bloodthirsty freemason Marat on the 13th of July 1793. Less than one in ten of those guillotined were aristocrats.
This was revealed just before the 200th anniversary of the revolution. This information is based on the protocols of the revolutionary tribunals, which include the names of all those executed. Nine per cent of the decapitated “enemies of the people” were nobles, 28 per cent peasants and 30 per cent workers. The rest were servants. (Dagens Nyheter, 1st July 1989.)
In other words, those killed were quite ordinary people. In Paris alone, 30 people were executed every day. The Jacobin executioners usually preferred blonde victims.
In 1903, Lenin proclaimed:
“A Russian social democrat must be a Jacobin.”
This was just the beginning. After the “revolution” came the wars.
The Jacobins explained in their inflammatory speeches how “a war would be a blessing for the nation. The worst thing that could happen to us now would be if we did not get a war”. On the 20th of April 1792, France declared war on Austria. After that, Belgium, Holland and parts of Germany were invaded. All those wars claimed two million lives.
All of France’s 27 million inhabitants were made to suffer from this madness. With the help of French “revolutionary” troops, the Republic or Commune of Mainz, Germany, was proclaimed on the 18th of March, 1793. The 18th of March had a special significance for the Illuminist conspirators. On the same day in 1314, the Jewish Grand Master of the Knights Templar, Jacques de Molay, was burned at the stake.
Because of this, some of the more important Illuminati actions were planned for just this day, as a kind of revenge for his execution. Revolts were organized to break out on the 18th of March, 1848, in several European countries. A coup was staged in Paris on this day (1871) after which the Illuminati proclaimed the Paris Commune.
Thanks to the efforts of the Prussian army, the snake-pit in Mainz was liquidated only four months later – on the 23rd of July 1793. Goethe accompanied the Prussian army as early as 1792 in its campaign against the “lawless Frenchmen”. (Dagens Nyheter, 4th of February 1989.)
On the 17th of January 1795, a revolutionary “sister-state” was founded in the Netherlands – the republic of Batavia, where Amsterdam became the capital. Napoleon oversaw the conversion of this state into the kingdom of Holland in 1806.
Jewish “revolutionaries” immediately saw to it that the Jews received full citizenship and so that they had their hands free to act. Maximilien Marie Isidore Robespierre (1758-1794) published a work entitled “To Protect the Political Rights of the Jews” as early as in 1789. Protection of Jewish rights was obviously considered the main priority.
Louis Joseph Marchand, friend of Napoleon Bonaparte, wrote in 1895 that Robespierre was actually a Jew by the name of Ruban from Alsace (“In Napoleon’s Shadow,” San Francisco, 1998).
The slogan which best summed up the Jacobins’ aims was: “All power to the bourgeoisie!” (the Illuminati). And the power certainly became centralized in France, according to Leo Gershoy, “The Era of the French Revolution 1789-1799” (New York, 1957, p. 41).
Everything that was non-essential was suddenly presented as essential.
However, the Buddhist work Dhammapada (11-12) says of this:
Those who take the non-real for the real
and the real for the non-real
and thus fall victims to erroneous notions
never reach the essence of reality.
Having realised the essential as the essential
and the non-essential as the non-essential,
they by thus following correct thinking
attain the essential.
Illuminist Jews saw to it that everything that was good about France was destroyed during the “revolution”.
What was good disappeared at the same rate that the evil grew. The road network was allowed to fall into disrepair, overseas trade ceased almost entirely and it took until 1809 for the industrial production to reach its pre-Revolutionary levels again, according to the historian Rene Sedillot (“Le cout de la Revolution francaise” / “The Cost of the French Revolution”).
Many villages were razed to the ground, churches and castles were destroyed on purpose. The cultural heritage was ravaged, including medieval buildings. The largest Romanesque architectural structure, the 10th century abbey in Cluny, was destroyed. Only one tower remains today. Those barbarians even began to tear down the Papal Palace in Avignon.
The steeple on the Notre-Dame of Paris was considered offensively tall and was torn down.
At the same time, the “revolutionaries” began to plunder castles of their art treasures. The Jewish writer Anatole France described in his book “The Thirsty Gods” how inspectors with tricolor ribbons around their collars began to turn up at the homes of the wealthy to search for riches. Delighted foreign art dealers bought sculptures and fragments of frescoes. Load after load of confiscated art collections were shipped over the English Channel.
The “revolution” was lucrative for the Illuminati and the speculators. All of this was repeated during and after the so-called Russian revolution. The mighty finance dynasty of the Rothschilds was born out of the French “revolution”. The Rothschilds are still in control behind the scenes today, especially within the European Union.
The government reached a deficit that made the pre-Revolutionary debts seem quite modest in comparison. The debt equaled 800 tons of gold, or 40 per cent of the total gold production of the world during the entire 18th century.
The real losers in the “revolution” were the Illuminati’s tools – the simple people. The land rights of the small peasants were taken away. The church charities ceased abruptly and any attempt at improving the conditions for loan-takers was regarded as a conspiracy against the state. The ranks of derelicts swelled. During Napoleon’s days one in five Parisians lived by begging.
The myth maintains that this was done to throw off the yoke of tyranny and to protect human rights. In actual fact, the Illuministic reign of terror abolished human rights altogether. It became forbidden for workers to organize and strike for better conditions. This prohibition was legislated on the 14th of June 1791. (Etienne Martin-Saint-Leon, “Les deux C.G.T., syndicalisme et communisme”, Paris, 1923, p. 7.)
The theatres were given free rein at the beginning, but later the actors began to be punished for undesirable productions. The Academy of Art was closed and anyone who wanted could call himself an artist. Anyone was allowed to be a doctor and to mix medicines, which had a very negative effect on the state of general health in France – but then, maybe this was the intention?
The 21st of January 1793, the Jewish chief executioner and freemason, Samson, and Samson’s son Henry executed Louis XVI. Samson said: “Louis, son of the holy one, rise up to heaven!” The execution of the king was celebrated every year until Napoleon’s coup in Bruimare (November) 1799. (Dagens Nyheter, 25th January 1989.) Even the word “roi” (king) was abolished. Marie Antoinette was executed on the 16th of October (Yahweh’s Doomsday) in 1793.
The young Hungarian philosopher Ferenc Feher, Lukacs’s disciple, living in New York, claimed in 1989 that Louis XVI was judged on political, not judicial, grounds. Because of this, he ascertained that it was terrorism, not democracy that was introduced. Feher believed that what was built up after the French revolution was simply unfounded lawlessness. (Expressen, 21st of August 1989.)
The playwright Eugene Ionesco observed in 1990 that this revolution was a big mistake, which led to the spread of the most terrible false doctrine in history.
The Illuminati wanted to completely politicize society. This was the job of the “insinuating brothers” under the name of the “Committee of National Security ” with its chief Chauvelin. At the same time, society was being undermined through the secret lodges, which began to prepare a dictatorship and a world revolution, which was intended to utterly overthrow the social order.
This world revolution was designed to be accomplished by a handful of Illuminist conductors. (Svenska Dagbladet, 16th August 1989.) The homosexual Robespierre was publicly regarded as a tyrant or dictator.
The new rulers demanded that the populace address all as “citizens”. The year was to begin upon a new day, the months were renamed, and the week became a 10-day period. An hour consisted of 100 minutes. All these idiocies were abolished by Napoleon in 1806.
The peasants in the Vendee province had had enough of all this “revolutionary” stupidity: their king had been murdered, schooling had been abolished, their oldest sons had all been enrolled into the army. On the 10th of March 1793, they rebelled. At the beginning they were quite successful but when the Jacobins realized that the populace was beginning to threaten their position, they imposed their dictatorship, which began on the 31st of May 1793, and lasted until March 1794. The terrorism during that period was the worst yet seen.
Virtually rampaging marauders murdered everyone in the province of Vendee. Only 12 000 people in the whole province survived the assaults. One general reported to Paris: “Vendee has ceased to exist.” Another wrote that his band of army raiders daily managed to kill 2000 people. A new rebellion went on during the years 1794-95. In total, 600000 lives were extinguished in the Vendee province.
In their struggle for power, some “revolutionaries” even happened to execute each other. Some leaders, above all those who wanted to limit the extent of the terrorism, were done away with (Georges Danton, Camille Desmoulins and other Dantonites went to the guillotine on the 5th of April 1794 as “enemies of the people”).
This awful end also awaited Robespierre. On the 27th of July 1794, the leader of the Jacobins was arrested together with other leading Communards (his brother Augustin, Saint-Just and Georges Gouthon) and was guillotined without trial. The reign of terror was over. The directors dissolved the Paris Commune on the 26th of October 1795. 54
The famous French historian Urbain Gohier revealed in his book “The Old France” (1922) how a certain speech, which Robespierre held for two hours at the convention on the 26th of July 1794, had meant his end. He condemned all the eager foreign agents who tried to direct the development of commerce in France too intensively and demanded that those agents be rendered harmless.
On the following day he was arrested together with his brother, Saint-Just and Georges Gouthon. All of them were executed without trial on the 28th of July. This speech has been left out of the official version of events. Officially, the “revolutionaries” justified their craving for power as “moral”, but the people were forced to be “virtuous” and to change their minds.
These experiences were exploited later in Russia when the Illuminati, who called themselves Bolsheviks, paid homage to the men responsible for this revolutionary terrorism: a statue of Robespierre (Ruban), whose family had immigrated to France from Ireland, was erected and a massive armoured cruiser (as well as several factories) were given the name Marat (actually Mosessohn).
What have Jewish ideologues said about this “revolution” in France?
Archives Israelites admitted very ambiguously on the 6th of June 1889: “The French Revolution has a very expressive Hebraic character.” The aim of this new politics, pursued for the people’s (the Illuminati’s) own best, was indubitably totalitarian (Svenska Dagbladet, 14th March 1989).
Later, the question arose whether this conspiracy to overthrow the church and the state had begun somewhere in Germany (Svenska Dag-bladet, 16th august 1989). Other states now sought to defend themselves against Illuminism. The Turks dismissed suggestions from Russia to take a joint action against France.
Gustavus III was also prepared to send 16 000 Swedish soldiers to help forge a European alliance to crush the French Revolution. He banned the Marseillaise in Sweden. Because of this, the earlier decision to murder the king was carried out. On the 16th of March 1792, Gustavus III was fatally wounded at a masked ball by the freemason Jakob Johan Anckarstrom. The king had been warned about possible assassination attempts but had not taken these warnings seriously. A bust of Anckarstrom stands in the lodge chamber of the Grand Orient in Paris.
In 1818 the freemasons put one of their agents from France on the Swedish throne – Jean Baptiste Bernadotte.
The Illuminati’s Way to World Power
Despite occasional setbacks (through Napoleon’s treachery) the Illuminati continued on their way to gaining world power.
Queen Marie Antoinette had warned her brother, Emperor Leopold II, about this in a letter:
“Be very careful of the Masonic lodges; you may already have been told about these. The beasts here count on achieving their aims in all countries. Oh God! Protect my fatherland and yourself from such a fate!”
The international Illuminati leaders held a conference in New York in 1850. They made preparations to start an International. An American committee was set up. Clinton Roosevelt, Horace Greeley and Charles Dana became its leaders. Another group was formed to co-ordinate acts off terrorism.
The Italian Jew Giuseppe Mazzini (born 1805 in Genoa) was selected to lead this group. He had been an Illuminatus since 1837 and was a freemason of the highest (33rd) degree. He assumed leadership of the Bavarian Illuminati. After Mazzini’s death in 1872 his position was taken over by the Jew Adriano Lemmi, who was a revolutionary conspirator and Grand Master of the Grand Orient in Italy. The first enthusiast for! Illuminism in Italy was Count Filippo Struzzi, who founded many lodges around Italy and acted as their leader. (Charles William Heckethorn, “Secret Societies”, Moscow, 1993, p. 206.)
Giuseppe Garibaldi was also an Illuminatus.
The members of the Garibaldi movement wore red shirts. Terrible atrocities began to take place in Italy, France, Spain, Austria and Russia after the aforementioned conference. Mazzini had the Duke of Parma murdered in 1854, as well as the judges who sentenced the murderers. Violent anarchists raged about until the beginning of the First World War.
Tens of thousands of people lost their lives. The world was to be divided into different blocks, which were to be put into violent opposition to each other. This operation was controlled from London. On the 29th of July 1900, King Umberto I was murdered by the freemason Gaetano Bresci in Monza, despite the fact that he was a member of the lodge Savoia Illuminata. The murderer Bresci belonged to an American lodge in Paterson, New Jersey.
In 1861, Abraham Lincoln was elected president of the U.S.A. He became a stumbling block to the Illuminati, however. First, the Civil War was started (the Confederacy was funded by Illuminist France). The Illuminati had worked hard to get the United States to use the same
56 banking system as the European countries, where private banks handled the issuing of money so that governments were forced to incur debt at high interest rates.
Lincoln opposed this and refused to give the Rothschild bank control over the American economy. Hence, the Jewish Illuminatus John Wilkes Booth murdered him on the 15th of April 1865 in Washington, only a few days after the end of the war. Lincoln’s murderer was also disposed of. Judah P. Benjamin, Rothschild’s agent, lurked behind Booth. (William Guy Carr, “The Red Fog Over America”, 1968, p. 194.)
The Confederate general Albert Pike (born on December 19, 1809 in Boston) became, as a freemason, a member of the American Illuminati group towards the end of the 1850s. Mazzini’s revolutionary activities (anarchic violence) brought discredit on the Grand Orient. Therefore, Mazzini suggested the founding of a new, extremely secret organization, the Palladium.
No mention of it would ever be made in the assemblies of the Lodges and Inner Shrines of other rites. For the secret of the new institution was only to be divulged with the greatest caution to a chosen few belonging to the ordinary high grades, according to the historian Domenico Margiotta in his book “Adriano Lemmi” (Grenoble, 1894, p. 97).
Giuseppe Mazzini sent a letter to Albert Pike on the 22nd of January 1870, in which he wrote among other things: “With this highest rite, we shall rule all freemasonry; it will become the international centre which will make us all the more mighty because its leadership is unknown.” The same Albert Pike set up this extremely secret organization, which was called The New and Reformed Palladian Rite.
The organization first had three important centers: Charleston in the United States of America, Rome in Italy and Berlin in Germany. Through Mazzini’s work, the organization set up altogether 23 subordinate councils at strategic locations around the world.
Comment: A Luciferian Ritual took place in Charleston and the Vatican invoking the Smoke of Satan as described in Windswept by Martin Malachi, former Vatican Insider who , it is believed, was murdered before he could complete his last book.
Palladianism actually became a satanic cult. This cult, or religion, worshipped Lucifer as a god.
Its oath proves this:
“The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.”
General Pike was an exceptionally evil man.
During the American Civil War, when he served under the Confederate flag, his army, composed of Indian bands from different tribes, perpetrated such atrocious massacres that Great Britain threatened to enter the war “for humanitarian reasons”.
Consequently, the Confederate president Jefferson Davis (1809-1889) was forced to intervene against his own general and disband his troops. After the civil war, Pike was taken to trial and sentenced to prison for his crimes. The freemasons immediately turned to President Andrew Johnson, who was a freemason himself (Greenville Lodge No. 19).
On 22 April 1866, President Johnson pardoned him. The following day, Pike visited the president in the White House. Johnson was subordinate to Pike within freemasonry. The press was not informed about this event until nine months later. (William T. Still, “New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies”, Lafayette, Louisiana, 1990, p. 123.)
Albert Pike was one of the founders of the infamous racist organization, the Ku Klux Klan. He was the first Grand Dragon of the Klan and wrote the anthem and the rules of the organization. The freemasons have erected a monument in honor of Albert Pike in Judiciary Square in central Washington D.C. The plaque on the statue presents Pike as a “soldier” and a “poet”.
Albert Pike was very enamored with the idea of world dominion.
In time, he became an Illuminatus of the highest (33rd) degree and in his mansion in Little Rock, he made plans to gain control over the world with the aid of three world wars and several revolutions.
The American Illuminati leader Albert Pike worked out long term plans for world dominion
In a letter to Mazzini, dated the 15th of August 1871, Pike broadly outlines his long-term plan for the seizure of power in the whole world.
One might expect the Illuminati to be more careful with their papers, so that their plans were not made public – but anyone who knows their history also knows that humanity will never take warning in time.
Professor Carroll Quigley (also an Illuminatus) realized this.
Public opinion, the majority of politicians, and social scientists are at any event unable to accept facts, which contradict their deeply held belief that they understand and control all that happens in society. Both Lenin and Hitler openly revealed their real aims years before they ever came to power. Did the nations heed the warning? No, they preferred to go on sleeping. It is no different today. The Illuminati know this.
Pike’s plan was ingeniously simple. The inherent antagonism between different ideologies was to be stirred up and made to explode in three world wars and three revolutions.
The First World War was to destroy the three European empires, at that time being the last remaining bulwarks against Illuminism. One of these (Russia) was to be made a centre of atheist totalitarianism (Communism). The Second World War was to erupt from heightened tensions between the Jewish race (and its spiteful Zionism) and extreme European nationalism (Nazism and Fascism).
This war would weaken Europe economically and politically and Communism wouId expand and become as strong as all Christendom, but not stronger, until the time was up for the final destruction of society.
A third reason for the Second World War was to create a Jewish state in Palestine. Gradually, it would be possible to thereby heighten the tensions between Judaism and Islam until they broke out in a war which would bring in all of the world powers.
The three revolutions, which would aid this carefully planned dissolution of all human civilizations, were the Russian, the Chinese and the Indo-Chinese. The historian Domenico Margiotta published the letter in his book (“Le Palladisme: Culte de Satan-Lucifer”, Grenoble, 1895, p. 186).
The reader will realize that most of this evil plan has already become reality. Concerning the last stage, General Pike wrote the following:
“We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists and 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 on be without compass (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, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
The reader will remember how atheist Communism in the Soviet Union suddenly came to an end in 1991.
More about this at the end of the book. Albert Pike wrote in his “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Rite of Scottish Freemasonry” (1871):
“Masonry has nothing whatsoever to do with the Bible, it is not founded on the Bible, for if it were, then it would not be masonry, it would be something else!”
The Jewish politician Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) in Great Britain, a contemporary of Pike and Mazzini, was, as a Frankist, kept well informed about the Illuminati’s incredible power.
He had always done what Rothschild wished. In his book “Lord George Bentinck: a Political Biography” (first published in 1852) he wrote the following revealing words, which were as valid then as 146 years later (London, 1882, pp. 397-398):
“It was neither the parliaments nor populations, nor the course of nature, nor the course of events, that overthrew the throne of Louis Philippe… the throne was surprised by the secret societies, ever prepared to ravage Europe… The secret associations are always vigilant and always prepared.”
The leading Jewish Illuminatus Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who became president of the United States of America in 1933, also admitted:
“Nothing happens by chance in politics. If something happens, you can be sure it was planned that way.”
Albert Pike worked hard to make the freemasonry more efficient. Among other reforms, he admitted women as members.
Over the years, the Illuminati have moved their headquarters between different cities. In the 1870s it was in Frankfurt am Main. According to Nordisk Familjebok it was in Berlin in 1907. Brockhaus Enzyklopadie (Wiesbaden, 1970) stated that the Illuminati were legalized in 1896. Their leader then was Leopold Engel, who published the Illuminati’s history in 1906 (“Geschichte des Illuminatenordens”).
According to “Meyers Enzyklopadisches Lexikon”, the various national llluminati groups combined to form a world association in 1925. According to Store Norske Lexikon (Oslo, 1979, Vol. 6, p. 183), the Illuminati stil continue their activities as a secret organization.
The Illuminati’s headquarters moved to Switzerland during the First World War and to New York after the Second World War (The Harold Pratt building, 58, East 68th Street). The Rockefellers now funded the Illuminati instead of the Rothschilds. (William Guy Carr, “Pawns in the Game”.) An especially useful tool of the Illuminati in the 20th century has been the I. G. Farben company, led by its Jewish chief Max Warburg.
Today, the Illuminati control the whole Masonic movement. They also control Rotary, Lions, B’nai B’rith, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg group, Skull & Bones, Bohemian Club and similar groups. Rotary International was founded by Paul Harris (member of B’nai B’rith) in Chicago in 1905. The Lions Club was also founded by B’nai B’rith in Chicago in 1917.
There are more than six million freemasons (3315 lodges) in the world today (four million in the United States of America, 600 000 in Great Britain, 70 000 in France). In Sweden there are 16 000 divided into 56 lodges.
A sarcastic survey of various networks was published in the respected magazine The Economist on the 26th of December 1992. The Illuminati were presented as the “mother of all networks” and “the True Rulers of the World”.
The magazine names Adam Weishaupt and the 1st of May 1776, and states that the Illuminati’s “conspiracy is immense and terrifying” and that “it is the network of those who run networks.”
Then they go on to point out that many American presidents have been Illuminati; some of them have been killed by the Illuminati and the Illuminati symbol – that of the eye in the pyramid – still graces the dollar bill. I found this symbol in the summer of 1986 among other Illuminati documents in the Ingolstadt archives.
It was the American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt, freemason of the 32nd degree, who ordered the seal to be printed on American one
61 dollar bills in 1933, 144 years after Congress had accepted this seal.
The seal symbolizes that the Illuminati claim to control America, no matter who the president is.
- The year MDCCLXXVI on the pyramid stands for 1776, when the Order of the Illuminati was founded, but also when the American Republic was proclaimed.
- The pyramid represents the conspiracy to establish a world government. The All-seeing eye symbolizes the secret police that Weishaupt called the “insinuating brothers”.
- Annuit Coeptis means “He has nodded assent to (our) plans”.
- Novus Ordo Seclorum means “New World Order”.
The Illuminati apparently felt so safe that The Economist (their own publication) was allowed to publish this information. In contrast, there is not a single word about the Illuminati in the new Swedish National Encyclopaedia.
This book outlines how the Illuminati’s most important ideology -Communism – was spread using guile and violence. The author reveals numerous lies which uninformed people have swallowed in good faith.
The Illuminati knew their business.
The French socialist and Illuminatus Louis Blanc called Weishaupt the most skilful conspirator through the ages.
Telling the story of the rise of Communism means revealing the histories of the worst of the criminals involved at the time. But this is necessary, for without knowledge of the secrets of evil, we cannot properly develop the good, either.
As the Swedish philosopher Henry T. Laurency wrote:
“Only he who knows evil knows good.”
Then we shall appreciate goodness above everything else on earth. Then we may really be able to welcome the truth, even if it is frightening and dismiss lies, even if they are pleasant.
