Masonic Invisible Empire


Edmund Burke

Turning our thoughts back to "hoodwinking", hoodwinking people into, for example, a state of almost stunned paralysis to make them accept unthinkable atrocities is an age-old Masonic ploy. It was used with considerable success with the Masonic murders of five prostitutes in the Whitechapel area of London in 1888.LINK It was used with even greater success in the United States on Friday, 22 November 1963 when American institutions consigned a frightened nation to the role of sheep in the ward of wolves with the Masonic-pioneered coup d'état to remove John Fitzgerald Kennedy as president and then cover up those responsible. It had also occurred almost 100 years earlier with President Abraham Lincoln the victim.

On New Year's Day 1959, around the time when President-elect, John Kennedy was urging a programme of foreign aid to spur long-term development in the underdeveloped sector, Fidel Castro overthrew the corrupt Cuban regime of the dictator, Fulgencio Batista, and established a socialist state.  Castro then seized US and other foreign-owned property, putting an end to, especially, the gambling casinos and brothels owned by the Mafia.  This made Castro unpopular with both the Mafia and the CIA.

More importantly, he was unpopular with the Anglo-American elite, not because of his communist ideals, per se, but because of his awareness of the power game.  It was inevitable that he would be targeted to try to prevent him spreading that awareness.  The hatred of communism by the majority of Americans is the result of mass indoctrination.  As far as the moguls are concerned, the more diverse the ideals, the more opportunities there are to pit them one against the other.  It is divide and rule in substance.

The following explains why John Kennedy was not quite the blue-eyed boy in the higher echelons of the American establishment.  As early as Kennedy's Inauguration Address on 20 January 1961, he pledged to aid that "half of the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery," and committed the US to an "alliance for progress" with Ibero-America, which would assist "free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty."

He also asked Moscow to join the US in "creating a new endeavour, not a new balance of power, but a new world law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved."  This "beachhead of cooperation" would "invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors."

"Together," he said, "let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.  Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah: to 'undo the heavy burdens ... [and] let the oppressed go free'."

Before January was out, Kennedy issued executive orders to create the Food for Peace programme to make use of US agricultural abundance to meet the nutritional and development needs of foreign nations, particularly in the developing sector.  Giving his first State of the Union address that month, he called on all nations, including the Soviet Union, to join the US to prepare "for probing the distant planets of Mars and Venus, probes that may someday unlock the deepest secrets of the universe.

"The US," he announced, "would be willing to join with the soviet Union and the scientists of all nations in a greater effort to make the fruits of this knowledge available to all ... to extend farm technology to hungry nations, to wipe out disease, to increase the exchange of scientists and their knowledge, and to make our own laboratories available to the technicians of other lands who lack the facilities to pursue their own work."

What Kennedy would not realise at this time was the importance to powerful, financial elitists of not joining resources but playing out a space-race game to justify exacting funny-money from their respective treasuries.  What is best for a country's populace, or mankind in general, has seldom been in the best interests of the financial looters.

In that respect, it is not difficult to grasp how the many logical and easily implemented measures of Kennedy's to benefit mankind were at odds with the money moguls who reinforce their power base by preserving the begging-bowl status of the Third World.  It is equally uncomplicated to identify the great efforts these same moguls would go to first concoct a realisable strategy in their citadels-of-silence by applying collective, inductive reasoning to try to get Kennedy to accept the "wisdom" of their policies.  When that failed, and lucrative bribes failed, their final option was a coup d'état.

Not long after Kennedy's inauguration, unlikely collaborators in the CIA and the Mafia formulated a joint plot against Fidel Castro.   The new and inexperienced President John Kennedy was inadequately briefed by the CIA about the Cuba invasion and was given bad military advice.  The "Bay of Pigs" invasion on 17 April 1961 was inevitably a fiasco.  From Guatemala, fifteen hundred US-trained Cuban exiles were landed at the southern coast of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs on a true Mission Impossible that had no chance of success without US military support.  The CIA believed that since Kennedy had rubberstamped the invasion, irrespective of the fact that he was manipulated by false reasoning, he would feel obliged to intervene with air strikes in support of the anti-Castro faction.  When the attackers were ignominiously defeated, Kennedy refused the US military to intervene.  He knew that such action would be diplomatically indefensible.

Realising too that the CIA had led him up the garden path, the president made moves to conciliate with the Cuban leader.  Alan Dulles, the CIA director and Henry Kissinger, both Freemasons, were dumped from the Kennedy administration.  Simultaneously, Kennedy, along with his younger brother, Attorney General Robert Francis Kennedy, embarked on an onslaught against the Mafia.  These measures did nothing to dissolve the peculiar CIA/Mafia alliance, or endear them to either of these organisations.

(It is worth keeping in mind that the original Mafia of the 19th century was a Masonic creation of Giuseppe Mazzini, one of Lord Palmerston's puppets in the multicultural menagerie who was safehoused in London at one time or another.LINK  At the time of Kennedy's presidency the Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, which Mazzini was a one-time member, was J Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI and well-known adversary of JFK.)

Every society, it seems, is encumbered with an administration harbouring a blueprinted principle for war, with the authority of the state over its people residing in its war powers.  John Kennedy appeared to be breaking with that tradition when he refused to send military support for the Cuban exiles in 1961.  But there was a lot more to Kennedy than just that.  Apart from the agenda mentioned above, he also set out to withdraw from Vietnam; he signed a treaty with the Soviets to ban nuclear testing; he wanted to end racial discrimination; and he wanted to resuscitate the American System of economics.  A liberal on domestic policy he established the Peace Corps; fought for slum clearance and cheap public housing; and he raised the minimum wage.  Thirty years before it actually happened he envisaged an end to the Cold War and hoped to achieve it in his second term.  But all that ended on 22 November 1963.

Kennedy's agenda would have meant that the CIA revenue from the Treasury would be drastically cut, which only added to the many enemies he already had in the Agency.  Like Caesar, he was surrounded by enemies.  The psyche of the Kennedy agenda compared to the still existent Confederacy agenda, embracing the age-old British slave trade and free-trade mentality, was implacably hostile so the conscientious, but meddlesome, JFK, had to be eliminated.

For different reasons, many people and varying groups yearned for the president to be removed from office, but none of them could achieve it in isolation.

The assassination of Kennedy was certainly not the act of a madman simply seeking instant infamy because the person accused of the murder, Lee Harvey Oswald, emphatically denied it, claiming he was a "patsy", which is American slang for a scapegoat or a fall guy.  He would not have claimed patsy status if he was seeking infamy.

Nor was this an operation that could be planned, organised and executed over a short period of time by a handful of clever people who hated Kennedy and wished to seize power for themselves.  Clever people would realise that every amateur sleuth, every ham assassinologist, every practised legal eagle, and basically every believer in the truth, and law and order, would be searching ad infinitum for the real perpetrators.  So it had to be organised from the very top.  Such diverse figures as CIA operatives, FBI agents, Government officials, military personnel, Mafia figures and certain Cubans were all used specifically to shock, confuse and intimidate the American people into mass numbness.

Soon after the assassination, Kennedy's body was illegally removed from Dallas to Washington DC for the autopsy, simply because, when a coup d'état takes place, there is a world of a difference between an autopsy being performed by civilian pathologists and an autopsy being performed by military pathologists under orders from generals and admirals.  The departure of "Air Force One" from Dallas was not so much a take-off as a getaway, with Vice-President Lyndon Baines Johnson sworn in as President on the flight to Washington.  By this time the media were already reporting that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin.  Ever since, the American establishment has tried its damndest to promote that predetermined myth.

On Tuesday, 26 November 196, the day after Kennedy's funeral Lyndon Johnson signed National Security Memorandum 273, effectively reversing Kennedy's new withdrawal policy from Vietnam, giving a green light to covert action against North Vietnam.  The war cost 2,000,000 Asian lives and 58,000 American lives.  The financial cost was $220 Billion.  Ten million Americans were airlifted there by commercial aircraft, and more than 5,000 helicopters were lost.  The number of bombs dropped amounted to a total  weight of 6½ million tons.

The District Attorney of New Orleans at the time of the assassination, Jim Garrison, claims, persuasively, in his book, "On the Trail of the Assassin", that Lyndon Johnson and the Director of the FBI, the homosexual J(ohn) Edgar Hoover were accessories after the fact in the assassination.  Hoover was Director of the FBI from 1924 until his death in 1972, and, like Lyndon Johnson, was a Freemason.  J Edgar Hoover was in fact a 33° Mason, or Grand Inspector General of the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite.

The influence of Scottish Rite-dominated Freemasonry is shockingly pervasive in American government and culture, particularly in the South.  At length, its headquarters or Mother Lodge moved from South Carolina to Washington DC; the citadel of white supremacy in America.  Inside, Albert Pike is buried in a wall, while a shrine duplicates the office of FBI chief, J Edgar Hoover.

In the broader aspect of the coup d'état, the people who actually fired the bullets that killed Kennedy are really quite irrelevant.  What is important is: why was Kennedy killed?  Who benefited?  And, more importantly, who had the power to cover it up?  Having accepted the reality of a coup d'état the answers are quite simple, and are contained in this chapter.  The Warren Commission, set up to whitewash the conspiracy, had as two of its main members, Alan Dulles and Gerald Ford.  Alan Dulles, a US lawyer, was Director of the CIA from 1953 until Kennedy had him replaced in 1961 - only to be reinstated by the Masonic president, Lyndon Johnson.

Gerald Ford, who would later become president, was also a Freemason.  Alan Dulles's elder brother, John Foster Dulles, as US Secretary of State, was the architect of the US Cold War foreign policy, securing US intervention in support of South Vietnam following the expulsion of the French in 1954. John Dulles died in 1959, ten years before Alan but John's foreign policies and the CIA's policies, under Alan's direction, were noticeably compatible.  Under the direction of John Kennedy, the foreign policies were noticeably incompatible.

So diverse agents in the US had created a situation in which people's fears were played upon to manipulate them into accepting new forms of tyranny.  The US and the UK have long been at one on that approach.  The coup d'état and assassination could more easily have been achieved in comparative privacy with less violent methods, but it would not have had the desired effect on the nation.

The CIA, with its ability to eliminate heads of state it regards a problem, certainly has the capability to assassinate world leaders who obstruct their geopolitical and national goals, and with Freemasonry adept at uniting seemingly sundry state departments and incompatible factions, the execution of the coup and the subsequent cover-up reveals how the apparent unachievable becomes achievable.  Such is the potency of the invisible empire.

Fear and benign ignorance are embraced willingly by a public composed largely of shrinking violets, paradoxically as a feeling of well-being.  Stick you head in the sand and forget about it.  A blanked-out mind is devoid of any sense of guilt or morals.

The Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is very powerful in the States with members holding key positions in multifariously important government departments and other strategically-placed positions of importance.

Strangely, just as a Freemason, Lyndon Baines Johnson, was installed president within hours of the assassination of John F Kennedy, another Freemason and Johnson, Andrew Johnson, was installed president the same day as the assassination on 15 April 1865 of Abraham Lincoln.

As President Lincoln lay dying, Vice President Johnson visited the room where he lay, and when Mrs. Lincoln saw him, it was reported, she screamed and demanded he be removed. So he went back to his room at Kirkwood House.  Not only a Freemason he was also a slaveowner and regarded by many historians as one of the worst presidents in American history.

Johnson was a Southerner who made as if he was loyal to the Union.  In 1864, during the third year of the Civil War, he was elected as Lincoln's Vice-President.  After the coup d'état, he pursued a policy of conciliation towards the defeated Confederate States to the point of readmitting them to the Union without requiring political reforms or ensuring civil rights for freed black slaves.

On 26 May 1868, the senate failed by one vote to impeach President Andrew Johnson on a number of charges.  The most serious charge accused him of being involved in the conspiracy to murder Lincoln.  A perfect example of the brethren in the Senate "supporting a brother's character in his absence as in his presence".

Directly or indirectly, the British shot Lincoln for the purpose of bringing into the presidency the Freemason, Andrew Johnson, who was a pliable puppet of British pressures and policies.

Confederate General, Albert Pike LINK, who was arrested for treason, was later pardoned by his conspiratorial confederates of assassination, fellow Mason and President of the United States, Andrew Johnson.  This allowed the traitorous Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, Pike, to come out of hiding from British Canada.  Must we wonder, therefore, what furtive bedfellows kept Andrew Johnston, a Freemason, from impeachment under such incriminating circumstances?  If Johnson's guilt was not in question, an impeachment would surely have cleared the air for his own benefit.  Similarly, what furtive bedfellows ignored Lyndon Baines Johnson's Masonic connections and disregarded the successful re-run of the old box-office hit of 1868 when his namesake was protected from legal redress after the Lincoln murder?

The correlation between the two assassinated presidents do not end there and are really quite spooky.  The two men accused of shooting the presidents were both southerners and the two men who succeeded the presidents in the White House were southerners.  The alleged assassins, John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald were born, respectively, in 1839 and 1939.  Their names each had fifteen letters.  Booth ran from a theatre and was caught in a warehouse.  Oswald ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theatre.  They were both shot dead before being brought to trial, Booth twelve days after the death of Lincoln and Oswald two days after the death of Lincoln.

Both Kennedy and Lincoln had seven letters in their surnames.  Kennedy won the presidential election in 1960; Lincoln in 1860.  Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln; Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.  Both secretaries advised their presidents not to go to the places where they were shot.  Both men were shot in the presence of their wives.  The successor of both presidents was named Johnson and had the same number of letters in his Christian name and surname.  Lyndon Johnson was elected Vice-President in 1864; Andrew Johnson was elected Vice-President in 1864.  Both Johnsons were Freemasons.

The civil rights problems of their particular eras were deep concerns of both Lincoln and Kennedy, and the two were victims of coups d'état.  Both were even carried to their graves on the same caisson.

Obviously most of the statistics are phenomena or coincidence, but the Masonic connection is certainly not.  These particular "coincidences" did not end with demise of John Kennedy.  In 1964, Lyndon Johnson preferred a Masonic brother, Hubert H Humphrey, to Robert Francis  Kennedy for the Vice-Presidency nomination.  Then, four years later,6 June 1968, just over two months after the Masonic LBJ announced he would not be a candidate for reselection for the Presidency, RFK, as a surprise late entry but leading candidate for the Democratic nomination, was assassinated in Los Angeles shortly after easily winning the California primary.  This made way a short time later for LBJ's Masonic Vice-President, Hubert H Humphrey, to be nominated as the Democrat's presidential candidate.  Perhaps it was poetic justice that Humphrey ultimately lost to Richard Nixon on 6 November that year, but there was no poetic justice for Robert Kennedy.

Returning to John Kennedy, JFK had long been a keen advocate for the space race programme, but I wonder what he would have thought of Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin taking a small Scottish Rite 33 degree flag with him to the moon on Apollo 11, for the landing on 21 July 1969?  I have long thought that members of the Scottish Rite's heads were in the clouds, but I had never considered an astronaut with only space between his ears.  What on earth possessed him?

The men who benefited most after the downfall of Presidents Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter were, respectively, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, both Freemasons.

Nixon's downfall was a result of "Watergate", a US political scandal (beginning with a burglary in the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC in 1972) that eventually led to the resignation of US President Richard Nixon

Gerald Ford helped to squash Congressman, Wright Patman's investigation into the "Watergate" scandal before it could be exposed that Brother George Bush's Texas-oil business partners, like Bill Liedtke, the president of Pennzoil, had paid for the break-in.  The resulting factor was that Bush became one of the most prominent beneficiaries of Watergate.

For the immediate term, Bush was appointed Director of the CIA by President Ford at the beginning of 1976, bringing General Noriega of Panama on to his payroll.  Holding that position until 1981, Bush became Vice-President on the Reagan ticket.  He was Vice-President until 1989 and President thereafter until 1998.

On the evening of 6 October 1976, Brother Ford perpetrated what was seen as a spectacular gaffe during a television debate with his successor and Democratic opponent, Jimmy Carter, endangering his reselection prospects.  He said: "There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under a Ford administration."  Carter immediately fastened on to this apparent bloomer by retorting: "I would like to see Ford convince Polish-Americans and Czech-Americans that their countries do not live under Soviet domination."

This debate in particular, but also along with Ford's decision to pardon Nixon over Watergate, were seen as cruxes in the battle for the White House, which Carter won narrowly the following month on 2 November 1976.

Carter might well have scored political points over this so-called gaffe but it is inconceivable that a US President would say something seemingly so preposterous in such a crucial debate, unless an underlying message of truth had slipped out in the passionate distraction of the public forum.  Or was Ford prepared to sacrifice the debate to reassure world Freemasonry, including the established underground Masonic Brotherhood in Eastern Europe, that the invisible empire was still very much in control, very much in control despite the supposed hindrance of the Cold War and the Berlin Wall?

During the year leading up to the next presidential election, the Carter administration had been haunted by the inability to rescue fifty American hostages captured by Iranian militants at the US Embassy in Teheran on 4 November 1979.  Cater had been negotiating an arms-for-hostages deal with Ayatollah Khomeini during October 1980, the month before the election, but was upstaged by the Masonic double-act of Reagan and Bush.  A pattern of cooperation developed between the Reagan-Bush campaign officials , along with Henry Kissinger and British interests, who surreptitiously cut a deal with the Khomeini mullahs to suspend the release of the hostages until after the election.  The American electorate fell for it.  Khomeini held on to the hostages until 20 January 1981, the day of the Reagan-Bush inauguration, and the hostages' plane was allowed to take off just as Reagan and Bush were taking their oaths of office.

At that time there was an arms embargo against Iran, and while the US publicly denounced the Khomeini regime as terrorists and kidnappers, the Reagan-Bush administration accelerated its secret deliveries of arms to Iran.  The "Contras" in Nicaragua were also secretly armed by the US for their war against the official Sandanista Government, yet such aid was prohibited by US law.  But when was the law ever a hindrance to the Masonic cartel?  Through General Noriega of Panama a major international arms-for-drugs trafficking operation was intermediated by Lt Col Oliver North.  The drug cartel links of the Contras enabled them to purchase arms from the US in exchange for dope.  In other words, the US Government, led by Brothers Reagan and Bush, were selling dope to American youth to fund the secret Contra war in Nicaragua.

What was even worse than the Iran-Contra affair was George Bush's illegal conduct in the Gulf in 1991 when the United Nations sanctioned operation "Desert Shield" to ensure that Saudi territory was protected, but which Bush turned into the murderous genocidal campaign, "Desert Storm".  Just as the British Queen is the major shareholder in Shell and British Petroleum (BP), George Bush owns stock in Pennzoil in Texas, while his company, Zapata Offshore, was drilling for oil in Kuwait, the Persian Gulf, Trinidad and Borneo.  the bogus excuses for fanatically attacking the Iraqi population and infrastructure have long been exposed and need no further refinement.

However, had Jimmy Carter, and Richard Nixon for that matter, been Freemasons, the history books would probably show an extended stint for them in the White House, the now familiar suffix "gate" would never have become a household term to describe scandals, and the annals would regard them more favourably.  Additionally, their characters, like some of the most despicable US Presidents in history, would have undoubtedly been "supported in their absence as in their presence", the fifth of the "Five Points of Fellowship" - the strongest oath of Masonic brotherhood.  And who knows how the history books would have been written had the Second World War hero, John Fitzgerald Kennedy survived to bring to an end the Cold War thirty years before it actually happened, and fulfilled his other ambitions, including enhancing the well-being of the developing sector?
