Illuminati Murdered at least Two More Presidents

"The bane of our civil institutions is to be found in Masonry, already powerful and daily becoming more so. I owe to my country an exposure of its dangers." - Captain William Morgan, murdered Sept 11, 1826

A curious but very credible Internet document called "The Mardi Gras Secrets" states that Illuminati agents poisoned and killed Presidents William Henry Harrison (1773-1841) and Zachary Taylor (1784-1850). They also poisoned James Buchanan in 1857 but he survived. All three were obstructing Illuminati- House of Rothschild plans for the US Civil War (1860-1865).

The document also describes the Illuminati role in the murders of Abraham Lincoln and Senator Huey Long. We know they also killed Presidents Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy and probably Warren Harding and possibly FDR. If George W. Bush weren't doing such an awful job, he probably would be poisoned as well.

The Mardi Gras Secrets website   was created in Dec. 2005 by Mimi L. Eustis, the daughter of Samuel Todd Churchill, a high level member of the secret New Orleans Mardi Gras Society called "The Mystick Crewe of Comus."

This Society, which reorganized the Mardi Gras festivities in 1857, was a chapter of the Skull and Bones. It began as a front for the activities of Masons Albert Pike, Judah Benjamin and John Slidell who became leaders of the Confederacy.

This information is based on Samuel Churchill's deathbed confessions, when he was dying of lung cancer. Mrs. Eustis later decided to make them public after she also contracted the terminal disease.

The Illuminati ringleader was Caleb Cushing (1800-1879), the partner of William Russell, the opium smuggler who founded the Yale Skull and Bones Society in 1832. In order to rise in this society, one had to participate in a "killing of the king" rite of passage.

According to Eustis, the Skull and Bones (or Brotherhood of Death) is "nothing more than a political assassination hit team against those United States politicians who do not fall in line with the House of Rothschild's plans for a blood elitist domination and control over the world's economy...For example Caleb Cushing was involved in the arsenic poisoning deaths of United States presidents William Henry Harrison on April 4, 1841 and Zachary Taylor on July 9, 1850. These two Presidents had opposed admitting Texas and California as slave states."

William Henry Harrison was the first President ever to die in office, serving only 31 days. According to Wikipedia he died of "pneumonia."

On July 3, 1850, Zachary Taylor threatened to hang those ``taken in rebellion against the Union.'' The next day the President fell ill, vomited blackish material, and died July 9. (Kentucky authorities recently dug up Taylor's body looking for evidence of arsenic poisoning.)


I paraphrase Mrs. Eustis: During the Civil War (from 1861-1865), President Lincoln needed money to finance the War . The loan shark-bankers wanted 24% to 36% interest. Instead, Lincoln got Congress to authorize the printing of 450 million dollars worth of "Greenbacks" debt and interest-free money. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private.

The House of Rothschild recognized that sovereign governments printing interest-free and debt-free paper money would break their power.

Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth, was a member of Pike's Knights of the Golden Circle. He was in New Orleans during the winter of 1863-64 and conspired with Pike, Benjamin, Slidell and Admiral G.W. Baird to assassinate Lincoln. Baird later identified the body of Captain James William Boyd as Booth's. (Boyd was in fact a Confederate spy who resembled Booth and was used as a patsy. His body was dumped into an Arsenal Prison sinkhole used to dump dead horses.)

Eustis says her father emphasized that most Masons below the 3rd degree were good hardworking people. The Illuminati-Skull and Bones used the Masons as a disguise. Those who rose past the 33 degree level did so by participating in the "Killing of the King" ritual. The lower levels did as they were told without realizing their part in the "Killing of the King".

For assassinating Abraham Lincoln, Pike, Benjamin, Slidell and August Belmont (Rothschild's Northern agent) were made secret Kings of the Mystick Krewe of Comus. Andrew Johnson Vice -President became President and pardoned Albert Pike. Albert Pike awarded Andrew Johnson the thirty-third degree rite of passage.

" Doctors were an essential part of the Illuminati plan to kill U.S. political leaders [who] hindered the take over of the U.S. Republic by the international banking elite," Eustis writes.

" Illuminati doctors eventually did in both U.S. President William Henry Harrison and Zachary Taylor. They also played a death role in the shooting assassinations of U.S. Presidents Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865 (died April 15, 1865), James Garfield on July 2, 1881 (died September 19, 1881), and William McKinley Jr. on September 6, 1901 (died September 14, 1901)."

"Teddy Roosevelt became President after William McKinley was shot. Roosevelt received passage into the 33rd. degree and became a secret king of the Mystick Krewe of Comus. During his presidency, the Skull and Bones became firmly entrenched and controlled the U.S. Republic."


Huey Long ("Kingfish") was a populist who mounted a powerful challenge to FDR from his power base as Governor of Louisiana and later as US Senator. Unlike FDR, he was not a Mason and not a shill for the bankers. His "Share Our Wealth" program represented a genuine threat to the Illuminati.

An Illuminati member, Dr. Carl Austin Weiss shot Long Sept 8, 1935 and Dr. Arthur Vidrine ensured that Long did not recover. According to Eustis, Weiss was supposed to hit Long in the face, and Long's bodyguard Murphy Roden was supposed to shoot both Weiss and Long.  This may indeed be what happened.

Roden was a "spy for J. Edgar Hoover." Roden pumped 60 bullets into Weiss' body. Dr. Weiss was told his baby would be killed if he reneged on the mission.

Both FDR and J. Edgar Hoover won their 33 degree rite of passage for their participation in this murder.

"Franklin Delano Roosevelt was made King of Comus in 1937. When J. Edgar Hoover came down to New Orleans to act out his reign as King of Comus, he was involved in a sexual revelry of homosexuality and cross-dressing with various elitist bloodline members of the Mystick Krewe of Comus."


"Agents of Skull and Bones with blessing and involvement of J. Edgar Hoover FBI Director and 33rd level executioner-cover up specialist for the elitist bloodline of the House of Rothschild murdered Freemason Charles Lindberg's son. This killing of Freemason Charles Lindberg's son was to set an example that the isolationist stand was not the will of the Illuminati."

Mrs. Eustis doesn't touch upon the poisoning death of President Warren Harding (1865-1923) but this is how Wikipedia describes it:

"At the end of July, while traveling south from Alaska through British Columbia, [Harding] developed what was thought to be a severe case of  food poisoning. At the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, he developed pneumonia. Harding died of either a heart attack or a stroke at 7:35 p.m. on August 2, 1923, at the age of 57. The formal announcement, printed in the New York Times of that day, stated that 'a stroke of apoplexy' was the cause of death.' He had been ill exactly one week."

For FDR, see Emanuel Josephson, "The Strange Death of Franklin D. Roosevelt." (1948)


The "Mardi Gras Secrets" suggest that, given the depth of corruption, the US political system cannot be taken seriously as a democracy. There is a pattern of Illuminati-Rothschild control throughout US history. People who deny this are living in a fantasy.

The United States was created to advance the Illuminati New World Order based on Rothschild control of credit. American ideals were designed to dupe the masses, not to be realized.

The founders and heroes of the US were mostly Masons including Paul Revere, John Paul Jones and Benjamin Franklin. Francis Scott Key who wrote the national anthem was a Mason. John Hancock and most of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence were also Masons.

More-than-half the Presidents were Masons. These include Washington, Madison, Adams, Jefferson, Monroe, Jackson, Van Buren, Tyler, Polk, Taylor, Pierce, Buchanan, Johnson, Garfield, McKinley, TR, Taft, Harding, FDR, Truman, LBJ, Ford, Reagan, Clinton and Bush I and II.

Some of these really thought Masonry was about "making good men better" and had to be assassinated. Other Presidents who weren't Masons, like Eisenhower, Nixon and Carter, were still controlled by the same dark forces.

Throughout its history the United States has been in the clutches of a satanic cult empowered by the Rothschild central banking cartel. Many courageous Presidents and other politicians tried to free their countrymen and died unrecognized, their killers unpunished and triumphant.

The US is a nation decapitated, a headless giant led by demons.

Hi, Henry.

The video on youtube re: JFK [warning of secret societies] has been removed. I did find it on google, though.

Again, another excellent article. JFK's resistance to the Illuminati has dramatically increased my admiration of him. I was actually afraid for Texas Representative Ron Paul, who was running for president. I knew if he got it, he would be "taken care of". He's for Constitutional government and against the poisonous Federal Reserve. He certainly would not do their bidding.

It is so interesting to see the pressure increasing on the middle class with gas and food prices soaring. The USA is a breath away from economic collapse. The treasonous legislation and treaties, as well as excessive consumerism in the USA, has resulted in many of our jobs being transferred overseas. This hurts the middle class. Now, with prices soaring, the Illuminati plan of further dessimating the middle class is accelerating. They want two classes - those in poverty (like much of the rest of the world) and them. Poor people are easier to control.

In reading my favorite websites recently, a light bulb turned on for me. All this increased surveillance and monitoring of innocent American people, in the name of terrorism, is not to "protect" us. On the surface, "we" are not the threat; the "terrorists" are. So why is our government focusing on us and not the "terrorists"? In reality, we ARE the potential terrorists - terrorists who will resist the coming world government. The noose is tightening on the American people and nearly all are not even aware of it. Once they realize, it will be too late and those who resist the massive change in governance will be labeled terrorists or enemy combatants. That's why all these concentration camps are being covertly built within the USA. We will be the terrorists. Those who revolt and want revolution to rid ourselves of this treasonous cancer, called world government, will be seen as the enemy.

BTW, you don't have to post any of this on your site. I just wanted to chat with someone who understands and whose eyes are open.

Wow! Yes, that is the very expression that I felt after reading this very imporant and most intriguing article. I have opened up into an even wider world of U.S. history. This whole article is a completely unbiased and non-spiked history lesson. You can just feel the truth coming out of this article. It definitely beats out any history book, and more specifically, a U.S. history books. This is stuff not covered in my Honors U.S. history class or any U.S. history class in particular. Sure wished my U.S. history teacher was one of you guys because he is a terrific U.S. history teacher.

This article also rightly proves a suspicion or suspicions that I had developed on certain U.S. presidents and certain political events(i.e. political assasinations). Like, for example, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, The Clintons( Bill & current presidental candidate, Hillary), The Bushes, the Rockefellers just to name a few. Some I had recently developed, and some growing.

God knows that all those evil rich bastards mentioned above had a hand in the assasinations of President John F. Kennedy, the last TRUE President of the U.S.; Sen./A.G. Robert F. Kennedy; John F. Kennedy, Jr, Martin L. King, Jr,and countless others.

Down with the Illuminati, down with the Zionists, down with the NAU and NWO, and down with all evil secret societies!!!

Your article on the Illuminati control of the presidency was very depressing. I guess you are saying there is no hope for America. If the people like what Ron Paul says and actually support him in great numbers, then his life would probably be in danger. I wonder if he knows this.


Paul can't win because the mass media will never give him a fair shake. Depressing but liberating to know where we stand. Thanks for writing.


But the Internet WILL give Ron Paul a fair shake. More and more people are turning to the Internet for their news. We heard Mr. Paul speak at Iowa State University last month, and he said he was very encouraged at how his message is spreading across the Internet. According to a C-Span poll, 74% of the respondents said he won the MSNBC debate. And because of public demand, FoxNews has decided to allow all the candidates in their debate, last I heard. They were originally only going to allow the top 3. This is incredible!!

Nancy from Iowa

Hope you're right!

Henry: Regarding "Pattern of Satanic Control Throughout US History," fascinating. Do we really think we know all that has gone on among the powerful down through the ages? Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to John Adams in their later years, wrote "Who will write the history of the Revolution? Who will ever be able to write it?" Hopefully, more and more comes to light as time goes on, and our understanding grows. This is why the scientific, engineering, gear-head, tech-head types are wrong when they say science is ever-changing, ever-growing, history is dead, static, and never changes.

Tony said (May 5, 2007):

Henry, not all our "American ideals" are all that laudable when thought through. Our constitution is truly a mercantile document with no
mention of the necessity to include the spiritual as the basis of law.

Plus, it made a religion of the English speaking world's deadly mistake of worshiping the cult of the individual instead of basing our law on
the family, where all proper power would lie in a rightly constructed material law. The Irish were light years ahead of us in their constitutional law - which, of course, is no longer followed (when the chips are down) as it is unabashedly Christian.

Come to think of it, the cult of the individual is what masonry really caters to and builds upon. It might be as accurately called the "cult
of the overblown ego." One can easily see the errors and crimes such a mind set leads to. Those who thrive and rule under such a national
construction were once called "mattoids" - people usually defined as possessing great intellect but without any sort of right ethics; a form
of insanity.
