We have only to glance at the nomenclature of the last twenty-two of these degrees to see that on the basis of operative Masonry there has been built up a system composed of two elements: crusading chivalry and Judaic tradition. What else is this but Templarism?  Solving the Mystery of Babylon the Great by Edward Hendrie quoting:  SECRET SOCIETIES and SUBVERSIVE MOVEMENTS by Nesta Webster
Whenever you have a high-ranking homosexual fronting as a married
heterosexual, you have a malleable spy who will go to any treasonous lengths and
use all their resources just to maintain one or all of their positions. Many
homosexual Freemasons use Freemasonry and marriage as a form of cover.
Freemasons have a high rate of child-sex abuse, paedophilia and incest, with
accounts suggesting that Freemasons sexually abuse a third of their daughters
and granddaughters. Paedophiles control Freemasons, because Freemasons
consider paedophiles to be close to royals. Royals use their illegitimate
children for supply and control for paedophiles. Police are a Freemasonry
organisation and serve the British Crown. Thus Police cover for paedophiles and
expect promotions when they do so. Freemasons admire paedophiles and a Freemason
will do anything a paedophile asks them to do. This does not exclude dropping
the Berlin Wall.
Because the Freemasons control the police and judiciary, Freemasons are rarely charged for their incest, child-sex abuse and Paedophilia. When they are discovered, the first step is to cover up. When it becomes too obvious they are often murdered. Sometimes these murders are real and other times they are fake with new identities established elsewhere. In the case of really important secret society Members, they are retained, hidden and used for ceremonial purposes. Hitler was a British Agent by Greg Hallett p.205
Where a member of a secret society
or order is concerned, that member was already
hypnotized during initiation and it is not his
will that guards the secret," it is the will of
another, the will of the Lodge.
How many people know that hypnotism is about all there is to initiation ? Hypnotism and fear. The rest is camouflage.
In the event of this statement being doubted, we quote herewith from Freemasonry Universal an article which needs no further comment: 14
" The Stewards prepare the candidate ; the Tyler first, and afterwards in turn the I. G., Deacons and Junior Wardens should inspect the candidate to see that everything is strictly correct.
" The preparation symbolises poverty, blindness (or ignorance) and poverty of spirit, — but it may also signify a purification, i.e., that the riches and pleasures which bind one to the material side of life are discarded and the spirit blinded to their attractions. The baring of the right arm, left breast, left knee and right heel being slipshod, are apparently a reference to the awakening of occult centres in one's being which may only become active when purification of the whole nature has begun.
" The very specific character of the preparation points to real knowledge of the occult physiology of the process of initiation on the part of those who originated the method which has been so faithfully preserved. Certain Forces are sent through the candidate's body during the ceremony, especially at the moment when he is created, received and constituted an Entered Apprentice Freemason. Certain parts of the Lodge have been very heavily charged with magnetic force especially in order that the Candidate may absorb as much as possible of this force.
"The first object of this curious method of preparation is to expose to this influence those various parts of the body which are especially used in the ceremony. In ancient Egypt, there was another reason for these preparations, for a weak current of physical electricity was sent through the candidate by means of a rod or sword with which he was touched at certain points. It is partly on this account that at this first initiation the candidate is deprived of all metals since they may very easily interfere with the flow of the currents. "
All kinds of nice inspiring symbolical interpretations of the ritual are generally given for the benefit of people who seem to want them, but it is here evident that the candidate, unknown to himself or herself, has acted throughout the ceremony of initiation under the stress of hypnotism. No longer a free agent, the initiate takes the oath under hypnotic force which, has also been used to instil into him the feeling of fear. Fear guards the secret of initiation, fear born under the power of hypnotism to serve henceforth as the controlling agent of the initiators over the initiated. The Right Worshipful Master must be a genuine occultist, as it is up to him to charge (hypnotise) the candidate, for to give this in the words of Freemasonry Universal : " The R. W. M. gives the light, the pure white light of truth and illumination. " Occult Theocracy by Lady Queenborough (aka Edith Starr Miller.)
The vast majority of Freemasons are not Satanists or child abusers, but there is a far greater ratio of them in secret societies like the Masons, than outside. How can you have confidence in justice therefore when, for instance, the Manor of St James’s Freemasonry Lodge, No 9179, consists of the leading operational police officers from all the major units of London’s Metropolitan Police, including the Anti-Terrorist Squad, Fraud Squad, and the Complaints Investigations Branch which is supposed to investigate allegations of police wrong-doing! The St James’s Lodge further includes senior figures from the Home Office, judiciary, and the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, which decides if a person will or will not be prosecuted. The whole system of investigation, prosecution, and trial, or the suppression of them, can be achieved by members of this one lodge working together. What chance has a child got against that? Chapter 15- Satan’s Children
While on the surface the Templars appeared to engage in selfless service, they were initiated with a ceremony which required them to reject Christ by spitting on a crucifix. They were then ordered to worship Satan, who was depicted in the form of a bearded idol. Although Pope Clement V was personally apprised of the blasphemous conduct of the Templars, he took no action until their activities became public knowledge. It was then that the political pressure forced his hand and the Templars were suppressed. According to Albert Pike, Jacques de Molay, the Grand Master of the Templars, was arrested and while he was in prison founded the first lodges of Freemasonry in Naples, Edinburgh, Stockholm, and Paris. De Molay was burned at the stake in 1314 by King Philip IV of France and Pope Clement V. Albert Pike states that both King Philip IV of France and Pope Clement V were assassinated shortly thereafter as revenge for the suppression of the Knights Templars. The young men’s branch of modern freemasonry is named after Jacques de Molay.  Solving the Mystery of Babylon the Great by Edward Hendrie
"(Bill Schnoebelen) had been a 90 degree Freemason when most people think Freemasonry goes only as high as 33 degrees. He explained how there is one particular level in one branch of Masonry whereby a Mason swears, “I will keep the secrets of a Royal Arch Companion, murder and treason not excepted.”"---How We Discovered the World's First Ex-Vampire
 The Fight Against USURY by Jüri Lina The assassination of Lincoln was carried out by John Wilkes Booth (Botha), a Freemason of the 33rd degree, on April 15, 1865 in Washington, D.C., only six days after the end of the Civil War. Izola Forrester, Booth's granddaughter, stated in her book This One Mad Act (1937), that Booth belonged to the lodge Knights of the Golden Circle and also Giuseppe Mazzini's "revolutionary" movement Young America. Izola Forrester revealed in detail that the Freemasons were involved hi the assassination of the president. Booth was soon eliminated.
The Freemasons and the Illuminati are hand in glove. I don't care
if this steps on any toes, it's a fact. The Masonic temple at Alexandria,
Virginia (the city itself was named after Alexandria, Egypt, and is a hotbed of
Illuminati activity) is a center in the Washington, DC area for Illuminati
scholarship and teaching. I was taken there at intervals for testing, to step up
a level, for scholarship, and high ceremonies. The leaders in this Masonic group
were also Illuminists.
This has been true of every large city I have lived in. The top Freemasons were also top Illuminists. My maternal grandparents were both high ranking Masons in the city of Pittsburgh, Pa. (president of the Eastern Star and 33rd degree Mason) and they both were also leaders in the Illuminati in that area.
Are all Masons Illuminati? No, especially at the lower levels, I believe they know nothing of the practices that occur in the middle of the night in the larger temples. Many are probably fine businessmen and Christians. But I have never known a 32 degree or above who wasn't Illuminati, and the group helped create Freemasonry as a "front" for their activities.

If anyone looks through MORALS AND DOGMA, the Masonic ‘bible’ written by Confederate General Albert Pike in the mid nineteenth century, one will find a diagram of ‘Baphomet, the Hermaphroditic Goat’ drawn in an inverted pentagram. Notice that the face looks reptilian, perhaps even Draconian. Carol and I believe that this is the image that the 32nd degree and above Masons regard as Satan, their sponsor. We believe that a Draconian or off-planet reptilian show up in their secret upper level meetings and that the humans are just stupid enough to think he/she’s a devil ;-) It’s no small wonder that LaRouche refers to Satanism as ‘infantilism.’  The Adventures of Don & Carol Croft – Parts 11 – 20
"Sexual vampirism goes on and this explains why there is an epidemic of child sexual abuse among Masons, as they believe (also commonly held among Illuminists) that if you have sex with a child you steal some of their youth and that in turn makes you live longer, and if you have sex with lots of children and the younger the better, you can live virtually forever and this is the promise held out by Masons."--Bill Schnoebelen (Interview with an Ex-Vampire).
Many of the highest-placed leaders in the Nazi party, including Hitler, Roehm, Forster, von Schirach and almost all of his bodyguards were gay. Hitler surrounded himself with homosexuals and even retrieved Roehm from Bolivia, making him Deputy Fuhrer. This knowledge enabled outside countries like Britain and ideologies like the Freemasons to control Hitler, his high command and his bodyguards. Hitler and his band of merry bandits became puppets with wooden strings. In this way, any foreign society can be destroyed with a leader hiding their sexuality. Hitler, Roehm, Forster and von Schirach took part in destroying their own societies while enjoying the power it gave them. Hitler was a double agent prime minister. He worked for a foreign country (Britain) and a foreign ideology (the Freemasons). The formula proved so effective it is still used today, in politics and the media, especially with TV personalities, radio announcers, prime ministers and presidents, both male and female.

Studying freemasonry gave me an understanding of how evil works in our world.
The entrance lodge, the blue lodge, the first 3 degrees are all warm, loving,
and the energy forms created are quite powerful and pleasing. This gets you in.
Makes you feel at home. This is how modern cults work, as well, take note. They
get you in, make you feel loved, you are among friends, we are your real family,
like that. Then once in, the good light vanishes with each degree and upward
movement, and the false light, the dark light, slowly takes its place. I almost
died in a lodge meeting—my very last—as they tried to kill me there using black
magic. My heart stopped, I found I could not breathe, and fell over near-dead in
lodge. Except for one person, no one stopped the proceedings in lodge or even
bothered to help me. I was carried outside of lodge and laid on a table. Then my
heart started again and I found myself recovering, still hearing the proceedings
of the lodge inside and only the one person standing next to me, “are you okay?”
I never went back after that. I had what I needed for the book. These Luciferic souls showed me exactly what they were inside. I saw firsthand how the thing worked and had direct experience of what happens to a man or woman when a collective of dark souls gathered to do harm to another. My first experience with “blasting.” And I was the victim. Lot of that around these days, you know.  The Long and Winding Internet Road By Don Bradley, March 14th, 2008
Karl Marx, Lenin and Trotsky, all Jewish Freemasons, were essentially dysfunctional losers who were employed by the Illuminist bankers to hoodwink the masses. Lenin for example had been an unsuccessful lawyer who had only six cases in which he defended shoplifters. He lost them all. A week later he gave up the law to become a highly paid revolutionary. Lenin declared: "Peace means quite simply the domination of Communism over the entire world." His reign of terror caused nine million deaths but you never see him compared to Hitler. The secret police, the Cheka, dominated by Jews, published the names of 1.7 million people they murdered in 1918-1919, including 300,000 priests. "A river of blood flowed through Russia," Lina writes. "According to official Soviet Reports, 1,695,904 people were executed from January 1921 to April 1922. Among these victims were bishops, professors, doctors, officers, policemen, lawyers, civil servants, writers...Their crime was 'anti social thinking' " Did Rothschild Write The Protocols of Zion ?

The Fraternity Pub. Co., 1891, p. 225.) I mention John Collins as an example of a powerful 18th century Freemason, who was part of what appears to be the Collins Illuminati family. In previous articles, we have documented how the early 18th century Astor's and DuPont's were active Freemasons. The history of these top families does agree with Bonewitz that in order to continue to practice their witchcraft they used the cover of Freemasonry.

Let’s digress just to let people in on Freemasonry’s involvement with acting and motion pictures. The famous 233 Club was a Masonic chapter for actors who were Freemasons. Examples of actors who were Freemasons include John Aasen, Gene Autry, Monte Blue and Humphrey Bogart, Douglas McClean, John Wayne.
Then there is T.V. DJ Dick Clark. Examples of Motion picture executives who were Freemasons incl. Ellis G. Arnall (Pres. of the Soc. of Ind. Motion Picture Producers), Will H. Hays (Czar of motion pictures 1922-45, and Pres. Motion Picture Produces & Distributors of Amer. Inc.), Benj. B. Kahane (v.p. & dir. Assoc. of Motion Picture Producers, Inc.), Carl Laemmle (Pres. Univ. Pictures Corp til ’36), Frank E. Mullen ( man. dept of info. RCA, VP NBC ‘39-’46, exec. VP NBC ‘46-’48), David Sarnoff (Chrm. of Bd. Radio Corp. of Amer. & ,,father" of American television), Jack M. Warner (v.p. of Warner Bros.) and the President & dir. of Universal Pictures since 1952. The Freemasons have made much of Walt Disney’s membership in their membership sales pitches. Because the 2 Disney brothers’ chief contributions to the production of Disney films were the finances and occasionally the ideas used in a film, it is rather misrepresentative of things that Walt Disney got all the credit for the success and quality of the Disney cartoons.

You remember Aleister Crowley. He was a 33rd degree Mason. I talked to Bill Schnoebelen one time and asked him, “Where did the Masons get the sodomy?” and he said, “It came by Aleister Crowley from black magic Hinduism.” Well, that isn’t the only place it came from.
