Masonic Invisible Empire



Many significant Masonic players reach positions of high standing during times of war.  Not least Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964), a US General.  He was much decorated in World War 1, rising to become US Chief of Staff (1935-37).  The Army recalled MacArthur from retirement in 1941.  After failing to prevent the invasion of the Philippines by the Japanese in !941-42, he - surprise, surprise - managed to escape to Australia (12 March 1942), leaving us with his famous cliché: "I shall return."  He returned all right.  On 20 October 1944, MacArthur fulfilled his "daring" promise, with no little help from US Vice-Admiral, Thomas Kincaid and his 7th Fleet, along with spearhead troops of a 250,000 strong invasion force that had fought ashore a few days earlier.

From 1942-45 he regained both New Guinea and the Philippines.  In 1944, he was appointed general to the army.  With the surrender of Japan he became Supreme Commander of the Allied forces in Japan from 1945-50.  Between times (8 December 1947) MacArthur was elevated to a 33° Mason in the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, USA.

He was Commander (1950-51) of the United Nations' forces in the Korean War.  After invading the North he was beaten back by Chinese troops.  MacArthur threatened to bomb China but this was seen as liable to start World War III.  And he ignored repeated warnings from President Harry S Truman against making political statements. General MacArthur urged Truman to remove restrictions imposed on his freedom of action and demanded that he be allowed to carry the war to China.  Since his extreme views were contrary to US and UN policy he was relieved of all his commands on 11 April 1951 by the president for, inter alia, insubordination.  General Omar Bradley, supporting Truman's decision in front of a Senate committee on 23 May 1951, said: "MacArthur's strategy would have led to the wrong war, at the wrong place, at the wrong time, and with the wrong enemy."

President Truman was the Freemason who authorised the use of the nuclear bomb in Japan in August 1945 - agreed upon by the freemasonic British Prime Minister of the day, Winston Churchill.  Historians should note that there was one District Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Accepted Masons of Scotland in existence in Japan during the Second World War.  Lodge Star-in-the East (Far East) No 640 is a beautiful building and has a highly impressive Chapter Layout.  Consecrated ion 1st May 1879, it is still in existence today at Naka-ku in Yokohama, the seaport of Tokyo, the capital of Japan, one of the world's largest cities.

Yokohama is a long distance away from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which is no surprise to followers of irony.  Tokyo, on the East coast, would seem to be more accessible from the Pacific for attack by US bombers, but it would seem a pity to destroy such a beautiful building belonging to the brethren, who must remain brethren irrespective of the outcome of the war.  As a matter of fact, the US bomber passed directly over Tokyo heading to a northern destination, but weather conditions denied them the accuracy required to unload their cargo of mass destruction.  Rather than fly home with it, they unloaded their horror-laden freight on Nagasaki.  To preserve the capital of Japan, and its Masonic lodge, the US bomber travelled a long distance out of their way before unloading.

More Koreans died in Nagasaki than Japanese.  Koreans were forced into slave labour.  Despite that fact, a District Grand Lodge of Antient Free and Accepted Masons of Scotland has since been consecrated in South Korea (2 August 1979) in the Officers Club in the American Military Base, Camp Humphreys, in Gyeonggi-do, called, ironically, Lodge Harry S Truman (Far East) No 1727 after the president who sanctioned the atomic bomb drop.  Is this really all down to irony or was someone in Grand Lodge "taking the piss"?

Truman could not be accused of being slow in showing his contempt for the American people.  During the remodelling of the White House, he arranged the delivery of a number of White House foundation stones with Masonic symbols carved on them to Masonic lodges around the country.

His counterpart in London, a young Winston Churchill was initiated in 1903, and had a Masonic affiliation that lasted 62 years.  It was Churchill who made the famous statement: "Democracy is a terrible form of government, but all the others are worse."  What he probably meant was "democracy is the best form of government money can buy", giving that the secret society Churchill belonged to is irrefutably a consummate debasement of the democratic process.

It was reported on 6 May 1994 that Clive Ponting's biography of Churchill had just been published that day.  Clive Ponting was the senior civil servant sacked by the ministry of Defence even though a jury cleared him of an offence under the Official Secrets Act.  Mr Ponting had sent sensitive information to Tam Dalyell MP about the nuclear submarine HMS Conqueror "shooting the Argentine cruiser, the General Belgrano, in the back", on 2 May 1982 outside the British defined Total Exclusion Zone, which triggered off the unnecessary military conflict over the Falkland Islands/Malvinas.  The jury disagreed with the judge that a civil servant owed his duty to the government, taking Mr Ponting's line that he acted out of "his duty to the interests of the state"

In his biography, Clive Ponting claims that Winston Churchill was a money-grabbing alcoholic racist who did not even support democracy.  He saw the world divided into races, with the white Anglo-Saxon at the top.  He called the Chinese "pigtails" and "chinks", and the Indians "baboons".  Mr Ponting also claims that Churchill did not favour votes for all - especially women.  The moment universal suffrage came in he started devising schemes to give propertied classes more votes.  He was the nearest thing to a fascist, very close to Mussolini in his views.  When he was Home Secretary in 1910, he believed in sterilising the mentally degenerate.  The author also added that he had his back taxes written off during the Second World War.  Ponting says that after 30 years since Churchill's death, it was time to set the record straight because Churchill wrote so much about himself that his interpretation of his own life has become the accepted version.

Certainly these claims by Clive Ponting are everything one would expect of a Masonic white supremacist of the high degrees, corresponding closely with the dogma of the likes of Lord Palmerston, Albert Pike, et al, who are obsessed with power-seeking domination, à la, the slave trade mentality.

Although President Truman, with Churchill's "blessing", was responsible for dropping nuclear bombs in Japan, Churchill's counterpart in the White House for most of the Second world War, Franklin D Roosevelt, was also a Freemason, so his death was no watershed for the victims of Nagasaki and Hiroshima because, being a member of the same white-supremacist cult, it is almost certain he would have similarly favoured dropping the nuclear bombs.

As far as concerns General MacArthur, however, could it be that his Masonic white-supremacist nature made him think that if it was okay to "nuke" Japan it must be okay to nuke China?  This was the clanger that left brother Truman with no other option but to remove MacArthur from his command?  Truman was quoted as saying: "I fired him because he wouldn't respect the authority of the President.  I didn't fire him because he was a dumb son of a bitch, although he was, but that's not against the law for generals.  If it was, half to three-quarters of them would be in jail."  This did not deny MacArthur a hero's welcome on his return to the US, or prevent Truman from losing his own popularity - for not supporting a (superior) brother in his absence as in his presence.
