Few people noticed that the opening ceremony for the Olympic Games was actually a massive Satanic ritual designed to brainwash the audience—paving the way for an invasion of evil—the New Zealand Herald reported today on the website of conspiracy theorist David Icke, which outlines the plot.
Glastonbury Tor, where the games are located, is actually a “vortex,” a site where the earth’s subtle energy can be tapped. The Olympic Bell was designed to harness this energy and release it as a “Satanic frequency” aimed at the audience. Icke’s followers were encouraged to channel heart energy during the ceremony in order to dilute the evil it unleashed. The cabal apparently carried out a similar stunt earlier this year when Madonna conducted an elaborate Satanic ritual in front of thousands of people who believed they were simply watching the Superbowl halftime show.
Identifying Satanic rituals disguised as public events is tricky, but the evidence is everywhere if you know where to look. The article on the Madonna show successfully discerned “ritualistic dance moves,” while noting that her odd headdress represented “Ba’al the Nephelim King,” as well as the Egyptian deity Hathor. But the most insidious aspect of the ritual was its use of the letter ‘M’ (as in Madonna). ‘M’ is the 13th letter of the alphabet and represents the 13 Satanic bloodlines.
Icke’s claim about the Olympic bell contains no references to Ancient Near-Eastern mythology. Instead, his authority is derived from a theory that combines occult correspondences with quasi-scientific language. He explains:
Symbols are electromagnetic information fields that are encoded with information related to what the symbols represent. These symbols can attach to our own electromagnetic fields and psyche when we give them our unknowing attention—energy flows where attention goes.
In other words, listening to a bell can bring you under Satanic influence—but only if you don’t know a bell has the power to do this. Knowledge is indeed power.
In his work on evil conspiracy theories, David Frankfurter describes the role of “experts in evil”—individuals with the charismatic authority to identify these signs and mobilize a community against the conspiracy. As a professional conspiracy theorist, Icke is unquestionably such an expert. Witch-finders and inquisitors typically work to explain mundane misfortunes such as disease, crop failures, and other disasters; it’s less clear why conspiracy theorists would find Satan behind mainstream cultural events.
Perhaps the appeal of a conspiracy theory involving a neutral target like the Olympic Games is simply the pleasure of the reveal. Believers receive the satisfaction of knowing they have outsmarted the Satanists while everyone else foolishly sang along with Madonna or listened to their unholy bell.
While the theories can be entertaining, when too much momentum forms behind them they have historically resulted in moral panic and the persecution of innocent people. The Satanic Panic that peaked in the 1980s and 1990s is constantly threatening to return.
This week’s Time magazine recounted the story (headline: “New Jersey Police Suspect Cult Activity in Grave Robbing”) of a body taken from a mausoleum in Pleasantville, New Jersey. As police sometimes do when no motive is apparent, it suggested the crime might have been committed by a “cult.” The article even contained a link to a piece from 1978 entitled “The Quandary of the Cults.”
To a historian of American religion, this link came as a chilling omen that our cultural phobia of cults and conspiracies has made little progress in thirty years. At least when the New Jersey body thieves—almost certainly teenagers—are caught, they will have an excellent defense. It was not their fault they committed a pointless and shocking crime: They watched the opening ceremonies on television and the Olympics Bell bonded its Satanic frequency to their electromagnetic fields.
No one enjoys the Olympic Games more than I do. Every four years, both in the Summer and Winter Olympics, I watch, enthralled with the athletic ability of the performers, as they routinely, and beautifully, perform feats that are totally amazing. I think every person should enjoy these games to their hilt. Like few other things in our society, these Olympic Games show forth God’s handiwork in creating human beings. Surely, as Romans 1:20, states, God’s creation shows forth His attributes, His power, and His glory. Surely, these athletes do prove that we are “fearfully” and “wonderfully” created.
However, we shall show today how the modern Olympic Games are being mightily utilized to bring the world into the New World Order. While we cannot say with certainty that this goal was in the minds of the original founders of the Modern Olympic Games, we believe such may, indeed, have been the case. Bear with us as we review some of the evidence.
Before we get started, we feel it necessary to state that we do not intend to ruin society’s enjoyment in every instance by attempting to join every aspect of society today to the New World Order. No do we find a conspirator under every bed. However, please understand the problems which faced men, like Adam Weishaupt, who wanted to overthrow present Western Society, and institute a society which they called the New World Order. This New World Order is really a return to the Ancient Occultic ‘Wisdom’ of Egypt and Babylon, a society which was totally Pagan. However, Christian society stood in their way. When the Pagan society of ancient Rome finally fell in approximately 476 A.D., society at all levels changed from Pagan to Christian. Pagan values were replaced by Christian values in Education, Government, Arts, Science, Entertainment, and Religion. To reestablish the Ancient Paganism, Weishaupt and his followers had to attack Western society at every segment of society. This was their daunting task, and it seemed almost beyond the power of normal human endeavor. However, Weishaupt and his followers had supernatural help from Satan, who certainly wanted to destroy the existing Christian-based Western society and set up his own Kingdom. The result has been a movement which envisions a world which is Pagan, totalitarian, and which will fulfill Biblical prophecies about the Tribulation to an incredible degree.
But, Weishaupt also had other help, from a totally unsuspecting scholarly source: Edward Gibbon’s The History Of The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire, Six Volumes, published between 1776-1788. Gibbon’s work was scholarly and monumental, as it thoroughly covered a period of history spanning approximately 1,200 years. His goal in producing this study was to precisely catalog the reasons for the rise of the Roman Empire and the factors leading to the decline and fall of the Empire. Gibbons was universally hailed as achieving his objective brilliantly. Truly, no greater historical study has ever been created, before or since.
But, Gibbons not only created a document which details how and why the Roman Empire rose and fell; he created a document which detailed precisely how a successful and powerful Empire could be subverted and destroyed. And it was published in the precise time period (1776-1788) in which Weishaupt was beginning to formulate his Plan to overthrow the existing Western system of government and religion.
Gibbons listed five basic reasons that the enormous Roman Empire was destroyed:
The dramatic increase of divorce undermined the institution of the family.
The imposition of higher taxes undermined the economic stability and vitality of the Empire. Why were the taxes raised to such ruinous levels? To pay for deficit government spending, to pay for food for all in society and to pay for government-sponsored activities of diversion, such as circuses and sports. Interestingly, as the time of the final collapse drew closer, greater emphasis was placed on sports, to divert the attention of the public from the distressing news of massive trouble within the Empire.
The drive for personal pleasure had become very intense, even to the point of obsession. Gibbons noted that, at the very end, sports had become more exciting and brutal.
People lost their faith, both religiously and in their government. Paganism gave way to Christianity and the efficient Roman Government gave way to chaos and disintegration .
Hidden conspirators were working within the government to secretly destroy it. They worked quietly, invisibly and deceitfully; during the entire time they were secretly dismantling the government of the Roman Empire, they publicly proclaimed their unswerving support of it. Let us now return to the Modern Olympic Games, and their role in promoting the New World Order.
As we have stated many times, the last time Satan attempted to bring the world into a One-World Government and Religion was at the Tower of Babel. This tower was being constructed by Nimrod as a religious altar/temple, to be used in the Satanic Babylonian Mysteries. God thwarted this plan by confusing the languages so that the workers could not communicate effectively enough to complete the project. Very quickly, the people who could communicate with one another began to coalesce into groups, beginning to physically move to other locations, away from the groups which spoke different languages. Very soon, this physical relocation resulted in a spreading of peoples throughout the world. In a relatively short time, physical isolation from other peoples, coupled with the difference of language, resulted in the establishment of different values and different ways of looking at things. We call this culture.
God utilized differing cultures to permanently prevent the world coming together again to establish a One-World Government. Differing cultures prompted by differing languages and geographical distances, proved to be formidable barriers to the establishment of a One-World Government Economy, and Religion.
Yet, the Bible states that, at the End of the Age, God will again allow Satan to briefly reunite the world into a just such a One-World Government, Economy, and Religion, in a time called the Great Tribulation. This dictatorial kingdom, God promises, will only last 7 years, in large part because its effect will be so terrible that if God were to allow it to continue for any greater length of time, no human being would be left alive on the earth.
How, then, does Satan remove the barrier of differing cultures and languages?One of the most successful ways in which to unite the world’s differing governments and cultures, and to condition the peoples of the world to the concept of a global society, is through global sporting programs. The Modern Olympics was the first and most important of these global sporting programs. New Age writer, Allen Neuharth, captures this concept very clearly in his recent book, Nearly One World, published in 1989. Neuharth states, “Sports goes beyond political and racial realms: It brings the world together.” (Nearly One World, Allen Neuharth, USA Today Books, Doubleday, 666 Fifth Avenue, New York, 1989, p. 25).
Neuharth then goes to great lengths to show how global sporting programs, such as the Modern Olympics, the World Championships, and other worldwide sports, are providing a common set of aspirations for individual athletes and a common set of national goals for their respective governments . He states, “That spirit of competition that drives our love for sports is alive and well — even in the poorest, most remote sections of the globe. We’re running, walking, jumping, kicking, swimming, and throwing all over the globe: In the mountains and in the metropolis, in teams and in tribes, with amazing dedication and sophistication.” (p. 24)
In fact, “sports is more than a pastime. It’s a passion. A way of life.” As Neuharth was describing the tremendous dedication which athletes are devoting to the training for global sports, I realized he was talking about a dedication and a zeal which had always been associated with religion. Olympic athletes, for example, train 6-7 days a week, for 2-8 hours daily, to prepare for the chance to win a gold medal. How many Christians in today’s world, but especially in America, show such dedication? Most American Christians today do not even read their Bibles on a daily basis, nor pray regularly. Yet, the Apostle Paul states that, while physical training for sports competition is temporarily useful in preparing to win a prize which will fade away, spiritual training is infinitely more important, because it will win for us a prize which will last eternally without fading or deteriorating.
Neuharth continues to examine the effects of global sports programs. Small countries view these programs as a way in which to gain recognition and respect throughout the globe, and as a way in which to galvanize their peoples into exhibiting a national pride. Many people will overlook the failings of their economy if they feel their government has provided the leadership and resources which allow their national athletes to successfully win medals and championships . As examples, Neuharth cited Costa Rica’s Sylvia Poll winning a gold medal in the 1988 Olympic Games, the Irish team winning the European Soccer Championship in 1988, and how proud the South Pacific Island, Pago Pago, felt as it prepared its first-ever team to compete in the Olympics. He stated quite boldly, “Few things move us toward unity more surely than the flame, fame, and flags of the Olympic Games. It’s also not uncommon to find sports teams from one country playing in another — even if their governments disagree politically.” Olympic athletes display a unity and a common spirit with athletes of other races and countries, because they share the same dormitories, meal facilities, and the same competition.
Thus, we now know that the drive to the Pagan and Satanic New World Order is being greatly enhanced by the Modern Olympic Games. The original Greek Olympic Games were a pagan religious festival to honor the Greek god Zeus. Are the Modern Olympic Games also constructed along pagan lines? We submit to you that they are, as we can easily see by examining their symbols. The Pagan places great emphasis upon symbols, because they secretly communicate Pagan spiritual knowledge to the initiated while simultaneously hiding such knowledge from the uninitiated.
Let us examine the symbols of the Modern Olympics. The Olympics utilizes three symbols: The Interlocking Rings, The Flame, and The Dove. I find it interesting that three symbols are utilized, because three is a critically important number to the Pagan. In fact, it is so important that he worships the number.
1. The Interlocking Rings are supposedly symbolizing the ring competition of the sport of Gymnastics. However, I submit to you that these are not rings, but circles. The circle carries special meaning to the occultist, because it symbolizes the number zero. Madame Blavatsky wrote in her book, Isis Unveiled, that “Numbers are a key to the ancient views of cosmogony… all systems of religious mysticism are based upon numerals. The sacredness of numbers begins with the Great First Cause, the One (1) and ends only with the… zero — symbol of the infinite and boundless universe.” (p. 407). Zero symbolizes that happy state of the man who has finally reached that condition of being born again through his own occultic efforts. All occultists from all time have believed that salvation, or spiritual perfection, is to be achieved by one’s own efforts, utilizing the “true” spiritual knowledge contained within the occult.
In the Olympic Rings, we see these meanings symbolized. But, now we need to look at the rings more closely. Why are there five rings? Why not another number? Is there an important occultic meaning in the number five? Indeed there is. The number five is associated with the five-pointed star of Venus (Van Buren, The Secret Of The Illuminati, p. 38), and with that most famous of five-pointed stars, Satan’s Pentagram. Further, Westcott emphasizes in his book, The Occult Power Of Numbers, that the number five represents spiritual light, and as such, it unites in friendship the two forms of even (the number 2) and odd (the number 3). Is this not the concept of the Olympic Games, to unite in friendship all the peoples of the world, regardless of race, creed, or politics? We are now getting closer to understanding the symbolism of the Olympic Games. Interlocking Rings also symbolizes the “Interdependence” of all races of the world, another favorite New World Order Theme.
2. The Olympic Flame is also an occultic symbol. It is associated with Ancient Rituals, including human sacrifice. Trevor Ravenscroft, in his occultic masterpiece, The Spear Of Destiny, records that Hitler conducted his open-air stadium meetings as a Satanic Ritual. The last event in these rituals was to march to an open-air flame and bow down to it. This open-air flame was virtually identical to the Olympic Flame.
3. The Dove carries strong occultic meaning. Most Christians look upon the Dove as the symbol of the Holy Spirit, and so miss the occultic meaning. Van Buren states, “The dove then… was the symbol of the Cosmic Energies that flowed from the Mystic Centre of the Cosmos… which unites the mystical and scientific realization of the Powers of the Universe. In the Mysteries the dove symbolized the second person of the Trinity and was sacred to the Goddess. Not only did it represent purity and innocence but also Wisdom.” (p. 135-138). Who is the Second Member of the Pagan Trinity? The God Mother, the Goddess. Thus, the Olympic Dove represents Goddess worship, which has simply exploded during this century. Finally, the Pagan Dove serves yet another purpose: To deliver the Pagan Host from the earth to heaven in Pagan Ritual, carrying the Host in its mouth.
Thus, the Modern Olympic Games is just as occultic as the original Greek Games. Furthermore, the Olympics are being deliberately utilized as a vehicle to overcome the difficult barrier of differing cultures and languages, paving the way for the establishment of the New World Order.
But, as we have already alluded, the Olympic Games are not the only type event which is overcoming the cultural barrier to worldwide unity. After all, the Olympics occurs only every four years, hardly enough for the type of conditioning necessary to change deeply-held, traditional cultural attitudes. This type of change requires global sports competition which is much more repetitive than the Olympics. New World Order author Neuharth cites many examples of International Sports, in his book, Nearly One World:
Hockey, described by one Canadian player as “one of our diplomatic tools.” (p. 26)
Basketball, now being played throughout most of the world
Football, once thought of as an American sport, is now be played on a professional level in Europe and the former USSR.
Baseball is as much a passion in Japan and in the Third World as in the United States.
Gymnastics is far greater an obsession in other countries as in the United States.
Track and Field
In most of these sports, national stars are as much a hero as Michael Jordan is in this country. Sports is serious business. And it is uniting the world, preparing people for the political, economic, and religious uniting which is the stone for the New World Order.
Now that we have shown you how International Sports, including the Modern Olympics, is moving the world toward the New World Order, what should our response be? Should we oppose such sports endeavors? Should we try to keep our athletes from competing in the Olympics? We think not. These sports, in and of themselves, are not wrong. Athletes who compete are not committing any sin. We simply must be aware of the fact that New World Order leaders view these games as a very effective vehicle to unite the world into the New World Order. As we have said many times, our struggle against the New World Order is a spiritual battle. We must intensify our efforts at prayer and witness. Any Christian competing in these Sports Events should use this opportunity to witness to others from foreign lands about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
The New World Order is coming, and the Modern Olympic Games is helping it mightily. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use this knowledge many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you are not born again, I encourage you to either E-Mail me so we can talk, or go to a Fundamental Bible-believing church in your area (we can help you find one), where someone can show you the blessed, and easy, Biblical way in which you are born again. Remember Jesus’ Words, “You must be born again …” (John 3:3-7).
If you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order — Kingdom of Antichrist — in their daily news, then we need your support to stay on the Internet.
The sword is coming, and coming both quickly and with enormous power. But, most people, including most Christians, do not see it coming. Will you be a “Watchman On The Wall” with us? (Ezekiel 3:17-19, God’s most solemn warning)
Albert Pike received a vision, which he described in a letter that he wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871. This letter graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place.
Pike’s Letter to Mazzini
It is a commonly believed fallacy that for a short time, the Pike letter to Mazzini was on display in the British Museum Library in London, and it was copied by William Guy Carr, former Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy. The British Library has confirmed in writing to me that such a document has never been in their possession. Furthermore, in Carr’s book, Satan, Prince of this World, Carr includes the following footnote:
“The Keeper of Manuscripts recently informed the author that this letter is NOT catalogued in the British Museum Library. It seems strange that a man of Cardinal Rodriguez’s knowledge should have said that it WAS in 1925“.
It appears that Carr learned about this letter from Cardinal Caro y Rodriguez of Santiago, Chile, who wrote The Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled.
To date, no conclusive proof exists to show that this letter was ever written. Nevertheless, the letter is widely quoted and the topic of much discussion.
Following are apparently extracts of the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been planned for many generations.
“The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.” 2
Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War. “The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.” 3
After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.
(Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were not known in 1871 should remember that the Illuminati invented both these movements. In addition, Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates in France during the Revolution. In 1785, Restif coined the phrase four years before revolution broke out. Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Rousseau – as was the most famous conspirator of them all, Adam Weishaupt.)
“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.” 4
Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World. This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far off. Albert Pike’s Background
Very few outsiders know about the intimate plans of Albert Pike and the architects of the New World Order. In the 19th Century Albert Pike established a framework for bringing about the One World Order. Based on a vision revealed to him, Albert Pike wrote a blueprint of events that would play themselves out in the 20th century, with even more of these events yet to come. It is this blueprint which we believe unseen leaders are following today, knowingly or not, to engineer the planned Third and Final World War.
Albert Pike was born on December 29, 1809, in Boston, and was the oldest of six children born to Benjamin and Sarah Andrews Pike. He studied at Harvard, and later served as a Brigadier-General in the Confederate Army. After the Civil War, Pike was found guilty of treason and jailed, only to be pardoned by fellow Freemason President Andrew Johnson on April 22, 1866, who met with him the next day at the White House. On June 20, 1867, Scottish Rite officials conferred upon Johnson the 4th to 32nd Freemasonry degrees, and he later went to Boston to dedicate a Masonic Temple.
Pike was said to be a genius, able to read and write in 16 different languages, although I cannot find a record anywhere of what those languages were. In addition, he is widely accused of plagiarism, so take with a pinch of salt. At various stages of his life we was a poet, philosopher, frontiersman, soldier, humanitarian and philanthropist. A 33rd degree Mason, he was one of the founding fathers, and head of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, being the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859 and retained that position until his death in 1891. In 1869, he was a top leader in the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Incidentally, Freemasonry itself is a fascinating subject and I could devote an entire website to it. Simon Gray, a Freemason, has compiled a stunning amount of information on Freemasonry that I recommend for anyone who wants to learn more about it.
Pike was said to be a Satanist, who indulged in the occult, and he apparently possessed a bracelet which he used to summon Lucifer, with whom he had constant communication. He was the Grand Master of a Luciferian group known as the Order of the Palladium (or Sovereign Council of Wisdom), which had been founded in Paris in 1737. Palladism had been brought to Greece from Egypt by Pythagoras in the fifth century, and it was this cult of Satan that was introduced to the inner circle of the Masonic lodges. It was aligned with the Palladium of the Templars. In 1801, Issac Long, a Jew, brought a statue of Baphomet (Satan) to Charleston, South Carolina, where he helped to establish the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite. Long apparently chose Charleston because it was geographically located on the 33rd parallel of latitude (incidentally, so is Baghdad), and this council is considered to be the Mother Supreme Council of all Masonic Lodges of the World.
Pike was Long’s successor, and he changed the name of the Order to the New and Reformed Palladian Rite (or Reformed Palladium). The Order contained two degrees:
Adelph (or Brother), and
Companion of Ulysses (or Companion of Penelope).
Pike’s right-hand man was Phileas Walder, from Switzerland, who was a former Lutheran minister, a Masonic leader, occultist, and spiritualist. Pike also worked closely with Giusseppe Mazzini of Italy (1805-1872) who was a 33rd degree Mason, who became head of the Illuminati in 1834, and who founded the Mafia in 1860. Together with Mazzini, Lord Henry Palmerston of England (1784-1865, 33rd degree Mason), and Otto von Bismarck from Germany (1815-1898, 33rd degree Mason), Albert Pike intended to use the Palladian Rite to create a Satanic umbrella group that would tie all Masonic groups together.
Albert Pike died on April 2, 1891, and was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, although the corpse of Pike currently lies in the headquarters of the Council of the 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in Washington, D.C. (see The Deadly Deception, by Jim Shaw – former 33rd degree Mason and Past Master of all Scottish Rite bodies.)
The Albert Pike Monument
Albert Pike made his mark before the war in Arkansas as a lawyer and writer, but as a Confederate Brigadier General, he was, according to the Arkansas Democrat of July 31, 1978, a complete “WASH-OUT,” not a hero. Yet, Gen. Albert Pike is the only Confederate general with a statue on federal property in Washington, DC. He was honoured, not as a commander or even as a lawyer, but as Southern regional leader of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. The statue stands on a pedestal near the foot of Capitol Hill, between the Department of Labor building and the Municipal Building, between 3rd and 4th Streets, on D Street, NW. More background on the colorful history of the statue can be found at the Masonic Info website. During the 1992 presidential campaign, Lyndon H. LaRouche and his vice presidential running mate, the Reverend James Bevel, launched a mobilization to remove the statue of General Albert Pike from Washington, D.C.’s Judiciary Square. On February 1, the campaign drew an angry attack from freemasonic leader C. Fred Kleinknecht, who attempted to defend both Pike and the Ku Klux Klan from LaRouche and Bevel’s attack. A speech by Anton Chaitkin entitled ‘Why Albert Pike’s Statue Must Fall’ can be found here (September 21, 1992).
The Illuminati and Albert Pike
Adam Weishaupt (1748 – 1811) formed the Order of Perfectibilists on May 1, 1776 (to this day celebrated as May Day throughout many western countries), which later became known as the Illuminati, a secret society whose name means “Enlightened Ones”. Although the Order was founded to provide an opportunity for the free exchange of ideas, Weishaupt’s background as a Jesuit seems to have influenced the actual character of the society, such that the express aim of this Order became to abolish Christianity, and overturn all civil government.
An Italian revolutionary leader, Giusseppe Mazzini (1805-1872), a 33rd degree Mason, was selected by the Illuminati to head their worldwide operations in 1834. (Mazzini also founded the Mafia in 1860). Because of Mazzini’s revolutionary activities in Europe, the Bavarian government cracked down on the Illuminati and other secret societies for allegedly plotting a massive overthrow of Europe’s monarchies. As the secrets of the Illuminati were revealed, they were persecuted and eventually disbanded, only to re-establish themselves in the depths of other organizations, of which Freemasonry was one.
During his leadership, Mazzini enticed Albert Pike into the (now formally disbanded, but still operating) Illuminati. Pike was fascinated by the idea of a one world government, and when asked by Mazzini, readily agreed to write a ritual tome that guided the transition from average high-ranking mason into a top-ranking Illuminati mason (33rd degree). Since Mazzini also wanted Pike to head the Illuminati’s American chapter, he clearly felt Pike was worthy of such a task. Mazzini’s intention was that once a mason had made his way up the Freemason ladder and proven himself worthy, the highest ranking members would offer membership to the secret ‘society within a society’.
It is for this reason that most Freemasons vehemently deny the evil intentions of their fraternity. Since the vast majority never reach the 30th degree, they would not be aware of the real purpose behind Masonry. When instructing Pike how the tome should be developed, Mazzini wrote the following to Pike in a letter dated January 22, 1870. Remember that Freemasonry wasn’t started by Pike – rather it was infiltrated by the Illuminati who were looking for a respectable forum in which to hide their clandestine activities:
“We must allow all the federations to continue just as they are, with their systems, their central authorities and their diverse modes of correspondence between high grades of the same rite, organized as they are at the present, but we must create a super rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree whom we shall select. With regard to our brothers in Masonry, these men must be pledges to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become the one international center, the more powerful because its direction will be unknown.” 1
In 1871, Pike published the 861 page Masonic handbook known as the Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
After Mazzini’s death on March 11, 1872, Pike appointed Adriano Lemmi (1822-1896, 33rd degree Mason), a banker from Florence, Italy, to run their subversive activities in Europe. Lemmi was a supporter of patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, and may have been active in the Luciferian Society founded by Pike. Lemmi, in turn, was succeeded by Lenin and Trotsky, then by Stalin. The revolutionary activities of all these men were financed by British, French, German, and American international bankers; all of them dominated by the House of Rothschild.
Between 1859 and 1871, Pike worked out a military blueprint for three world wars and various revolutions throughout the world which he considered would forward the conspiracy to its final stage in the 20th Century.
In addition to the Supreme Council in Charleston, South Carolina, Pike established Supreme Councils in Rome, Italy (led by Mazzini); London, England (led by Palmerston); and Berlin, Germany (led by Bismarck). He set up 23 subordinate councils in strategic places throughout the world, including five Grand Central Directories in Washington, DC (North America), Montevideo (South America), Naples (Europe), Calcutta (Asia), and Mauritius (Africa), which were used to gather information. All of these branches have been the secret headquarters for the Illuminati’s activities ever since.
