The World At War

Chapter 3: The Internationalist Hierarchy




The Supreme Council


Now that we have covered the overall objectives of the global Illuminist conspiracy, it is time to focus our attention on its origin and nature. In a case like this, where not all the information is clear or reliable, the most logical approach is to determine an antithesis for comparison. It does not suffice to indicate that the antithesis would be anarchism or democracy, however, as then any government would constitute the thesis.

As the conspirators’ chief goal is described as spiritual war against God and the annihilation of Christianity, this means taking into account the Biblical point of view. With that in mind, the question we will examine first is how these conspirators are identified in the Bible. Note that a literal rendering for ‘Jews’ in the Bible is ‘Judaeans,’ as the word ‘Jew’ with its different connotations was not invented until the 18th century.

I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Revelation 2:9b (NIV)

I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. Revelation 3:9-10 (NIV)

Based on this, the conspirators clearly have God’s mandate to corrupt and assert control over the whole world. The “Synagogue (or Assembly/Congregation) of Satan” (SOS) have continually imposed themselves upon the religious establishment of their antithetical ideologies since long before Christ and his disciples became victims of the Satanic agentur. They were made especially manifest after the Hasmonean dynasty of the Kingdom of Judah usurped the Levite priesthood of Jerusalem in the early BC era. The Judaeans lost their ethnic heritage when the kingdom was put into captivity in the 6th century BC, and the kingdom was wiped off the map altogether in 70 AD by the Roman Empire which dispersed its population. Consequently, the Judaeans also lost their cultural heritage.

Many centuries after the destruction of Jerusalem, the Turkic tribes of Khazars living in the North Caucasus region officially adopted the Talmudic (or Babylonian) religion of Judaism. The conversion to Judaism seems to have been a hostile response to the Second Khazar-Arab War which may have forced the Khazar nobility to accept Islam for a time.54 It is further asserted by some researchers and by some who have betrayed the Illuminists that not just most, but actually all Ashkenazi Jews are descended from the Khazars. Whether this theory is accurate is a subject of intense debate between Zionists and anti-Zionists.

The Khazars forged a flourishing economic empire at the crossroads of trade between the West and the East, and had many enemies on all fronts. Some of these enemies were Islamic, some were Turkic like them, and some were Finnic or Slavic. The power of the Khazar Khaganate was eventually dismantled by the Kievan Rus’ about a thousand years ago and its people were scattered throughout Europe, particularly modern Russia.55 The Rus’ never quite forgot about their grudge against the Khazars, especially as another steppe people, the Golden Horde, annihilated the Kievan Rus’. The Finnic and Slavic peoples of Russia have always been in conflict with the minority population of Khazar Jews, and the conflict has extended over the face of the whole Western and Middle Eastern world.

While it is certainly true that Orthodox, Conservative and Reformed Jews all regard the Pharisees of the Bible to be their forebears, the Synagogue of Satan created Zionism a very long time ago, not to give Jews supremacy over the world, but for conflict and synthesis. Whether the Khazars inherited their legacy and spread it to Europe, or whether that notion is just anti-Zionist propaganda, the same synthesis has been developed. Jews, even though they are not real Judaeans and lie, have become the one culture most hated by all others, so much so that the conflict between Zionists and anti-Zionists has been created and managed to foment each of the World Wars. On one hand, it was the Synagogue of Satan which condemned Christ to death and shouted “His blood be upon us and upon our people,” and on the other hand, they have used their own actions to subvert peoples of Christian nations to condone religious or cultural intolerance.56 The Synagogue of Satan which manage this conflict, however, are neither Jewish nor Christian, and Zionism is just one of their fascist tools of subversion. But who are the Synagogue of Satan, then, other than people who pretend to be Judaeans to foment wars between Israelis and Gentiles?

It is not a coincidence that Jewish culture and money-lending are synonymous in the Western paradigm. It was unlawful to lend money for profit in the medieval Catholic world, so only the Jews of Europe were allowed to do it. In order to become wealthy, a non-Catholic merchant living in Italy could simply pretend to be Jewish, and attract business just by the clothes he wore and was sometimes obligated to wear by law. The rise of wealthy Italian banking families also parallels the fall of the Templars, not coincidentally.

Aside from making Jews the scapegoats of the New World Order dictatorship, the Synagogue of Satan have been infiltrating other religions since the Jewish bankers began revising their ancient protocols, and perhaps even earlier. The agentur (agencies) of the NWO are the agentur of the SOS which direct them. They work behind the scenes of government and private industry to force policies which are in accordance with the SOS’s plans. The NWO’s sometimes flawless but sloppy execution of the SOS’s protocols can make allies of one war enemies in the next and vice-versa, while the masses simply watch in stupefaction, surrendering their liberties in order to propagate their own terror.

The Synagogue of Satan were presided over mainly by Weishaupt and Pike during the periods most relevant to our study. They, in turn, reported to the Jewish banking family of Rothschilds who financed their revolutionary activities. Other important figureheads have included Moses Holbrook, Moses Mendelssohn and Aleister Crowley. Ultimate authority for all of the NWO’s activities derived from these men. Mazzini reported to Pike, Churchill reported to Crowley, and so on.

Weishaupt selected members of the Bavarian Illuminati to be placed in charge of the reading societies of Europe, which functioned as publishers and booksellers, and controlled every facet of public opinion through censorship and through their academic influence. “When we by degrees bring the whole trade of bookselling into our hands we shall bring it about that at least the writers who labour in the cause of superstition and restraint, will have neither a publisher nor readers.”57 This policy is still as effective as ever, except for the fact that digital information storage has allowed for the transmission of knowledge to anyone able to connect to the World Wide Web, with only minimal censorship.

On the religious front, Weishaupt intended for his revolutionaries to “bore from within until [Catholicism] remains nothing but an empty shell.” This task was handed down to and completed by men like Giuseppe Mazzini in Catholic Rome, Albert Pike and others in Masonic America, and Adolphe Isaac Cremieux in Jewish Europe. Their combined influence crossed into each of the other areas, and their mission was to infiltrate, influence and subvert, but never to act in such a way as to show their hand. In cases where their activities were met with suspicion, they were charged with silencing it.58

With recognition of this rather simple hierarchy, it is easy to see how the Hegelian theses and antitheses work with each other. Churchill told the British Parliament that he would join hands with the Devil if it would help him defeat Hitler. Of course, he already had, and every time he flashed his famous “victory” sign, he was publicly gesticulating his allegiance to Crowley, and to the SOS and Zionism in general.59 Crowley then publicly announced that he was “the Beast” and “the Antichrist.”60



The Administrative Council


Weishaupt’s ultimate goals, and therefore the goals of the Illuminists, are represented by the six-pointed star of Zionism. They are the abolition of (1) governments, (2) religions, (3) private property, (4) inheritance, (5) family units and (6) patriotism or nationalism. Replacing these will be (1) totalitarian Luciferian dictatorship, (2) the universal religion of “the True Light of the pure doctrine of Lucifer,” (3) a vast conglomeration of mongrelized humanity, (4) a selective breeding program for fulfillment of the Illuminists’ requirements, (5) artificial insemination, and (6) a mind control system which shall “erase all knowledge of the past, including religions, other than the Luciferian ideology, and of all other forms of government other than the Luciferian dictatorship.”61

The Illuminati are thought to have been a short-lived and isolated group exclusive to Bavaria in the accidentalist version of history which denies their influence in the world’s political revolutions. However, the Illuminati existed in other parts of Europe for many centuries prior to the emergence of the Bavarian sect led by Adam Weishaupt and the Rothschilds. In fact, the generic name of Illuminati in its modern context and with its modern connotations dates continuously back to at least to the 12th century.

The Alumbrados flourished in Spain during the Inquisition there, and moved to France during the 17th century as the Illuminés.62 Attempting to trace the Illuminati to their origins is time-consuming, but it is safe to assume that they had their origins with the Templars’ expeditions to Palestine as a revival of an ancient form of Gnosticism, evidenced by the Cathari (‘Perfects’) of southern France and northern Italy.

Starting in his early twenties, it took Weishaupt 6 years to learn and modernize the Illuminists’ protocols and establish an international organization with a secret headquarters. 1 May 1776 is formally celebrated as the day which this was finally accomplished. Prior to the Illuminists’ influence, May Day had been celebrated in the Catholic Church as a feast day of St. Mary, and as Beltane in Gaelic culture.63 By 1794, the duke of Brunswick had learned about Weishaupt’s true intentions and outlawed Masonry in Germany, claiming that the Illuminati had obtained such control of it that dissolution was the only remedy left.64

Robison claimed that the Masonic lodges in America had already been Illuminized prior to the American Revolution. David Papen, President of Harvard University, addressed the university’s graduating class in 1798 and made similar claims. Timothy Dwight, President of Yale University, wrote a paper entitled “The Duty of Americans, at the Present Crisis” to the same effect. Jebediah Morse’s Thanksgiving Day sermon was “The Illuminati and their Masonic Affiliations.” John Cosens Ogden succinctly summarized the anti-Illuminist sentiments in New England the following year by proclaiming that the Illuminati were “indefatigably engaged in destroying religion and government in the United States under feigned regard” for Americans’ safety.65

Most of the early US Presidents were self-described Deists, and therefore members of the Illuminati sect of the Luciferian conspiracy. Every known Illuminist to hold the office has been nominally affiliated with the Episcopalian Church, including most of the Founding Fathers, FDR, and both Bush family presidents.66 Furthermore, every president elected before the 20th century who was a Christian at the time of his election died in office. Andrew Jackson was the first Christian president, but he did not convert until after he left the office. Nor was William Henry Harrison a self-proclaimed Christian when he was elected. Rather, he died a month after his inauguration, and the rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. claimed that he had bought a Bible the day after his inauguration, with the intent of becoming a communicant member.67 Likewise, the next Christian (Zachary Taylor) also died a year into his term. It could just be that Harrison and Taylor were murdered for purely political reasons (they were the only Whigs elected to the office), but in this context it is unlikely, especially considering that the Whig Party was formed by a coalition of Christians who disagreed amongst themselves on matters of politics, but agreed to compromise in order to stand together against the Illuminists. Franklin Pierce was only allegedly a Christian, and is the only US President to affirm rather than swear an oath on the Bible at his inauguration. He was neither baptized nor confirmed until 4 years after his presidency.68 James Buchanan, too, did not become a Christian until after his presidency.

John Adams and his son John Quincy Adams, both Unitarians and Freemasons, are the two exceptions to the early influence of the Illuminists on American politics, having both been elected and surviving through their terms. In three correspondences to Colonel William Stone, editor of the Commercial Advertiser in New York, John Quincy Adams criticized Thomas Jefferson for the manner in which he had subverted Freemasonry in New England. Adams had himself been responsible for the organization of the lodges which the Illuminati had infiltrated and was personally offended. His main objections to the Illuminati are as follows:

1. Their teachings are contrary to the law of the land.
2. They are in violation of the precepts of Jesus Christ.
3. They require members to take a pledge to keep undefined secrets, the nature of which is unknown to the man taking the oath.
4. They require a member to express his willingness to suffer death should he violate his oath.
5. They require a member to say he will accept a mode of death which is unusual, inhuman, and so cruel that the details are unfit for utterance from human lips.69

The truth of Adams’ objections was almost the undoing of Masonry in America. In 1826, Captain William Morgan was accused of breaking his Masonic oath and condemned to death. However, he was warned about his impending fate and tried to escape to Canada, before being apprehended and executed by a Mason named Richard Howard at Niagara Falls. Stone, the recipient of Adams’ letters, was also a Knight Templar, and claimed that Howard reported his execution at a meeting of the Templars at St. John’s Hall, New York.70 His statements were published in his “Letters on Masonry and anti-Masonry.”

When word got out of Richard Howard’s deed, about 1500 Masonic lodges across America surrendered their charters. Of the 50,000 members of these lodges, an estimated 45,000 quit Masonry altogether. While this nearly destroyed the institution of Freemasonry in the United States, in effect, those who remained a part of it and assumed total control of it were the Illuminists and those loyal to them. Illuminism was therefore bolstered within the secret society, and Masonry revived during the next generation before Albert Pike officially reincorporated Universal Freemasonry into the Luciferian cause.71



The Political Action Council


Naturally the common people don’t want war, neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for their lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country. Hermann Goering72

The fate of the New World Order’s history was decided when Adam Weishaupt was selected to revise its protocols and establish Grand Orient Masonry during the 18th century. From then on, the Illuminists dramatically asserted their control over the nations of France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and the United States, and over dozens of other countries to a lesser extent. The Bavarian government’s exposure of the protocols happened shortly after the Treaty of Paris officially ended the American Revolutionary War, and not long before the outbreak of the French Revolution. The episode in Bavaria almost put an end to the internationalist conspiracy once and for all, but Weishaupt (code named Spartacus) had made preparations in advance. He wrote his most trusted lieutenant Zwack (Cato) in 1778:

I have considered everything and so prepared it, that if the Order should this day go to ruin, I shall in a year reestablish it more brilliant than ever. Adam Weishaupt73

This is precisely what happened in 1786. Weishaupt was banished from Bavaria and took up residence in Switzerland, where he was joined by the Marquis Constanza and the Marquis Savioli.74 Switzerland remained the headquarters of the New World Order’s political action council, with Giuseppe Mazzini operating out of London and Giuseppe Garibaldi out of New York, until it was moved to Rome. To this day, Switzerland has remained a political and economic safe haven for the Illuminists, a country which is exempt from foreign intervention, and which determines what is to become international law. The masses were made to think that the Illuminists’ agenda died a natural death in 1786, when in fact it simply moved to a place where the Illuminati could conduct their activities without fear of retribution. This is shown by the nearly immediate success of the French Revolution led by the Comte de Mirabeau and the Marquis de La Fayette.

A secret society of assassins known as the Carbonari were officially incorporated into the Grand Orient Masonry of the Illuminati on 13 Oct 1820.75 As the most visible underground faction of the political action council, they have carried out most of the world’s political murders, especially through the mafia (an acronym for Mazzini autorizza furti, incendi, avvelenamenti or ‘Mazzini authorizes thefts, arsons and poisonings’).76 Mazzini, born in 1805, was initiated into the Carbonari, possibly as early as the age of 15, when Austrian revolutionaries began seeking refuge in his native Genoa and when the movement was sanctioned by Weishaupt. He is known to have dedicated his life to the Italian Resurgence from at least 1830, being exiled from Genoa in 1831, and again from Marseilles in 1832. From there, he fled to Switzerland where Weishaupt’s immediate successor appointed him to direct the Illuminists’ political activities throughout Europe and the Americas. Some researchers even believe that Mazzini was Weishaupt’s successor, and that he initiated Pike.77

The political action council’s directors have always been chosen from Grand Orient Masonry, but they have not been initiated into the full secret of Luciferianism until much later, if at all. For example, the semi-legendary Sophia Walder was once thought to have been Pike’s second-in-command at the age of 20, equal to the Italian director of political action Adriano Lemmi.78 By the time she is said to have met with Lemmi in Rome on 18 Oct 1883, she supposedly had a million Palladists under her command.79 While no part of this story has ever been confirmed, it illustrates how only the leaders of the political action council at its very highest level have any idea how and why their activities are manipulated by the Luciferians who infiltrated the highest levels of Masonry in the 18th century.

Beginning with the Italians Constanza and Savioli, there have been two leaders of the political action council at any given time, just as there were always two consuls elected by the Roman Senate, but this may be due to separation of powers by degrees in the group’s hierarchy. Mazzini took policy orders directly from Weishaupt and Pike and passed them on to his lieutenant Giuseppe Garibaldi. Garibaldi met Mazzini in Geneva in 1833 and served him in Brazil between 1837 and 1847.80 He was brought back to Italy to oversee the Italian Revolutions of 1848 and overthrow the Papacy once and for all, a feat which was finally accomplished before the end of 1870.

Mazzini died in 1872, and control of the political action council was passed to the Luciferian initiate Adriano Lemmi, a banker who was one of Mazzini’s close personal friends and acted as a financier for the world’s revolutionary movements. Lemmi also based his operations out of Switzerland, and was able to unite all the Grand Orient lodges, where Mazzini had failed, before passing on control to the Grand Orient Masons Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, in accordance with the supreme council’s wishes.81

The socialist government of Lenin and Trotsky became the dominant faction of the political action council until the stage was set to foment the Second World War and establish the United Nations. By that time, Lenin had suffered a stroke which had rendered him speechless.82 He had intended for Trotsky to succeed him, but was put into isolation by Josef Stalin, who usurped Trotsky’s position. As a result, leadership of the political action council was passed on to several Soviet leaders, probably Andrei Gromyko and Dmitri Manuilsky in particular, who passed their power along to the United Nations. The official positions of director of political action were most likely passed to Winston Churchill and Bernard Law Montgomery, who eventually transferred most of their power to Dwight D. Eisenhower.

While the council of political action was not visibly active at the end of the 19th century (after Lemmi’s exile to Switzerland), this is because of the amazing success it had achieved at toppling governments and uniting nations for the New World Order, particularly in Germany. Lecturers boasted about this phase of the Illuminists’ history at their meetings, which strongly implies a tremendous amount of underground activity. Like the Bavarian Illuminati sect, the political action council also experienced a number of setbacks and temporary failures, the most visible of which were the American Civil War and the Russian Revolution of 1905. It was able to overcome these setbacks by usurping total political power in the United States with the removal of Hannibal Hamlin from the vice-presidency and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and through the successful Russian Revolution in 1917, which was made possible by the supreme council’s plan for the First World War.

The Illuminati intended to conquer the whole of Europe by military force before Napoleon Bonaparte’s failures showed that this was an impossible feat on both fronts (Britain and Russia). Considering that the same strategic errors were made, it is very unlikely that the attempts of world conquest by Germany’s Third Reich were serious. It was, in fact, Germany that was finally conquered by the Third Reich, having so long resisted the Zionist influences. While Bonaparte’s France was not able to conquer the United Kingdom and the Russian Empire, the NWO agents were able to wrest power away from the governments of these two nations through the First and Second World Wars, showing how even the tactical defeats of the political action council have been strategic victories for the New World Order.

When the Zionists’ Second French Republic was overthrown by Louis Napoleon (Emperor Napoleon III) in 1851, Adolphe Cremieux, their main propagandist in France, was imprisoned for espionage. He was soon released and went on to assist the German and French revolutionaries trying to overturn Napoleon’s reforms.83 Napoleon’s armies were defeated in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871 and he was deposed by Otto von Bismark, Pike’s administrative chief in Germany. France was returned to the rule of the New World Order, and Rome, previously under Napoleon’s protection, fell to Garibaldi’s forces. Other than this one prolonged incident, and until the American invasion of Libya in 2011, there had not been a serious and decisive armed struggle between NWO and non-NWO factions since the American Civil War. Now that the world is under the tight rule of the NWO, the Illuminists have gained enough prestige to have an international front in the United Nations syndicate.



Central High Freemasonry


 In the name of the Supreme Architect of all the World, I, [name], will never reveal the secrets, signs, touches, words, doctrines, or customs of the Free-masons, and will maintain above all an eternal silence concerning them. I promise, and I swear to God, not to reveal anything by pen, signs, words, or gestures, and never to have written, lithographed, printed, or published anything which has been confided to me up to now and may be confided henceforth. I bind myself and I submit to the subsequent punishment if I fail to keep my word; May they burn my lips with a red-hot iron, may they cut off my hand, and my neck, and snatch out my tongue, may my corpse be hanged in the Lodge during the admission of a new brother so that it may serve as a stigma of my infidelity, and an object of horror to the rest. May it be burned afterwards, and the ashes cast to the wind so that no trace remain of the memory of my treachery. Thus may God and His Holy Gospel help me. So be it. Masonic Oath84

In light of this and other methods used by secret societies, it is easy to see how a single secret society of carefully selected, powerful individuals could infiltrate and overthrow Freemasonry, and how if such a usurpation were to take place, it could go virtually unnoticed by ostensibly neutral observers. Furthermore, a list of the original Bavarian Illuminati will show that the conspiracy was not a joke in 1776. They were men of social rank—wealthy and intelligent bourgeois scholars and noblemen.85 Weishaupt established at least 50 Grand Orient lodges on the European continent alone by 1786, comprised of these notable figures.86

As in the case involving William Morgan and Richard Howard, the Illuminati are known to have corrupted what had been the many autonomous institutions of Freemasonry, to the disgust of the vast majority of its members. This was the situation which Pike inherited as Sovereign Grand-commander of the Supreme Council for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States on 2 Jan 1859. In order to remedy it, he organized and modernized his Palladism to be above even Grand Orient Masonry, supposedly calling his result the New and Reformed Palladian Rite, much like Weishaupt had done with his own Illuminati and the modernization of the ancient protocols. In a letter dated 22 Jan 1870, Mazzini (as Italian Grand Master) wrote Pike outlining the role which Masonry was to play in the immediate future of Illuminism—a role which was compromised by the end of Lemmi’s tenure (1906).

We must allow all the federation [of different Masonic orders] 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 present, but we must create a supreme rite, which will remain unknown, to which we will call those Masons of high degree whom we shall select. With regard to their brothers in Masonry, these men must be pledged to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite we will govern all Freemasonry, which will become the one international centre, the more powerful because its directions will be unknown. Giuseppe Mazzini87

Pike and Mazzini signed the decree for the constitution of Central High Masonry on 20 Sep 1870. On that day, the Grand Orient Masons, led by Mazzini’s lieutenant General Raffaele Cadorna, marched into Rome and annexed it to Italy. While the Pope ordered his army to stand down and declared himself a prisoner, Pike assumed the title of Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry and Mazzini assumed the title of Sovereign Chief of Political Action.88 Pike then went on to finish his Adonaicide Mass ritual, as well as Morals and Dogma, which was published the following year. Within 20 years of his initiation into it, he had brought the entire world of Freemasonry under the New and Reformed Palladian Rite, with all the temporal power of the Pope. This is a truly remarkable achievement, considering Pike’s open preference for Luciferianism, and considering his how open contempt for Masonry clearly shows even in his oft-quoted Masonic writings.

The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true interpretation is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry. The whole body of the Royal and Sacerdotal Art was hidden so carefully, centuries since, in the High Degrees, as that it is even yet impossible to solve many of the enigmas which they contain. It is well enough for the mass of those called Masons, to imagine that all is contained in the Blue Degrees; and whoso attempts to undeceive them will labor in vain, and without any true reward violate his obligations as an Adept. Masonry is the veritable Sphinx, buried to the head in the sands heaped round it by the ages. Albert Pike89

Even Mazzini’s astounding military victories were not enough to convince many Freemasons to become a part of the internationalist conspiracy, especially those sympathetic to the vanquished Papacy. In 1878, the head of British Freemasons ordered them to withdraw completely from all connections with Grant Orient Masonry. In 1923, the High Council of British Freemasons declared, “As recognition was withdrawn from that body by the United Grand Lodge of England in 1878 … it is considered necessary to warn all members of our lodges that they cannot visit any lodge under the obedience of a jurisdiction unrecognized by the United Grand Lodge of England; and further, that under rule 150 of the Book of Constitutions, they cannot admit visitors therefrom.”90 Those who cling to the imposed paradigm of accidentalism must ask themselves why they believe the Order of the Illuminati died a natural death in 1786, when the world’s most influential Freemasons clearly do not.

Regarding this issue, Pike says, “The Anti-Masons, traitors and perjurors some, and some mere political knaves, purified Masonry by persecution, and so proved to be its benefactors; for that which is persecuted, grows. To them its present popularity is due, the cheapening of its Degrees, the invasion of its Lodges, that are no longer Sanctuaries, by the multitude; its pomp and pageantry and overdone display,” (p. 814).

77 “Guiseppe Mazzini was initiated into the Carbonari and Grand Orient Masonry, in 1827. Weishaupt ordered him to go to America and secretly develop the part America was to play in the final stages of the Luciferian conspiracy. Many students of the W.R.M. express the opinion that it was Mazzini who became the mentor who controlled Pike until 1872 when he (Mazzini) died. With this opinion I must disagree,” (Carr, p. 115).

From the evidence he had at his disposal, Carr did not believe that Mazzini was a full initiate into Luciferianism. I am certain of it, however. I have interpreted the same evidence as an indication that his intention was to carry out Weishaupt’s objectives, not duplicate them, and that there was nothing original about his or Pike’s reforms. Even though Mazzini is referred to as Pike’s lieutenant in this context, it is only because Pike was in charge of the supreme council, not because the supreme council was set above the political action council. Unlike Carr, I believe that the directors of political action were actually chosen from the supreme council and that the Alta Vendita’s lodge was more powerful than Carr gives it credit for. The obvious reason Mazzini would have been put in charge of the Carbonari at such a young age, apart from the capture and execution of the Carbonari leader Ciro Menotti, would have been an affiliation with the Alta Vendita. Wikipedia claims he became affiliated with the Carbonari in 1830. If this is true, then he would have had to have been a member or close acquaintance of the Rothschild family to be given so much authority in such a short time. He started writing essays in support of Illuminism and dreamed of writing a book about the history of religion around the time of his graduation from the University of Genoa in 1826, therefore Carr’s 1827 initiation seems far more likely. Either way, it is clear that the decisions of succession of Menotti and Weishaupt in 1831 were made by Karl and Amschel Rothschild, respectively. It is highly unlikely that one person would have been given both roles even for a short time. For a good biography of Mazzini see

78 Sophia Walder may have, and probably, never even existed. Leo Taxil made a public confession in 1897 (published in the Parisian newspaper Le Fondeur) that he had fabricated the entire story of the high priestesses of Palladism. However, the sources which promote this point of view are as unreliable and biased as Taxil himself. Critics of the anti-Masonic point of view fail to take into account the double standard of objectivity regarding the Leo Taxil hoax. Taxil worked both sides of the conspiracy to make money from both Catholics and anti-Catholics, but in his confession admitted his anti-Catholic bias and the fact that he had never even been a Catholic. An objective reader must ask how Taxil knew so much about the highest ranks of Masonry if he was not merely perpetrating a cover-up, as he was barely even initiated into it, yet the content of his hoax was confirmed by contemporary high-ranking Masons such as Margiotta. It would be ridiculous to suppose, as proponents of the notion that all of Taxil’s claims were a hoax do, that in spite of such incredulity, every word of his confession was also true, if such a confession indeed even took place. To then simply dismiss each of the other authors on the subject as pseudonyms of Taxil and a co-conspirator, as is routinely done, is equally absurd. It is hard to find an objective viewpoint regarding this issue which even takes Margiotta’s Le Palladisme into account at all, and I have never seen any attention given to them outside the context of A. E. Waite’s apology, which only covers it enough to summarily discredit it by its presumed association with the other fraudulent works. His books are simply ignored by the flat-earth accidentalists, probably owing to the fact that they have not been translated into English, which would not even be the case if not for Taxil’s confession. It would be far more plausible to believe that Taxil’s confession comprises an elaborate cover-up to disregard what credible evidence has existed (i.e., to bury Margiotta’s revelations, however fanciful their context), which is now being advanced chiefly by the Scottish Rite Research Society. Margiotta had certainly caused enough damage to merit the attention of a lot of angry Illuminists, who have murdered other authors for far less. This mention of Sophia Walder is the only instance where I have invoked Taxil’s anti-Masonic legacy (including Edith Starr Miller’s widely referenced Occult Theocracy) rather than Margiotta’s far more reliable legacy. This intentional avoidance of Taxil’s legacy does not mean that his writings were full of nothing but lies; only that they were unreliable by his own admission, however contrived it may have been.

81 While Carr places much emphasis on the succession of the Illuminists’ directors of political action, he does not document his reasons for the exact selection of names. I believe he may have overestimated Manuilsky’s importance due to the political climate of the Cold War era, and also due to the supposed demise of the Soviet Union, which he could not have foreseen. (This part of the conspiracy was not publicly revealed until Anatoliy Golitsyn defected to the United States after Carr’s death, in 1961.) Nevertheless, the notion of Manuilsky’s secret importance must be taken seriously, as Carr must have had a good reason for naming him. In any case, it hardly matters, considering that Manuilsky still only occupied a middle management role in Carr’s world view, on account of the fact that the revolution had already been consolidated in Russia by then. His naming of Mazzini, Lemmi and Lenin, on the other hand, is crucial to the overall treatise. The ideologies and activities of these men overlap so much that on page 117 he does not know who to attribute a certain event to but uses the phrase “Mazzini or Lemmi.” Only recently have I learned that Carr did not exaggerate Lemmi’s importance by referring to him as the director of financial affairs, much less how he personally oversaw Mazzini’s revolutions, as well as the activities of Lenin and Trotsky in their earliest days, from his exile in Switzerland. (Before the information became available from my Italian sources, I had not known that Lemmi was Grand Master of the Grand Orient in Italy from 1885 to 1896, i.e., when Lenin and Trotsky were initiated into the Grand Orient.) The special relationship which Lemmi and Mazzini shared—the one being called the director of financial affairs by Carr, and the other, the director of dogmatic affairs—may also explain the peculiar nature of the relationship between Trotsky and the directors of political action. Lenin and Trotsky were, in all likelihood, the respective heirs of Marx and Engels (i.e., the Grand Masters of the Grand Orient outside of Italy), which would also imply that Carr may have been wrong in his assertion that Lenin was Lemmi’s successor, though the research which I have done since 2006 has certainly corroborated his conclusions, especially where he has claimed that Lemmi was Mazzini’s replacement, which I had already taken as the most logical inference which can be drawn from the very clear association between the Grand Orient in Italy and the leaders of the Italian Revolutions. It was Lemmi who unified the lodges during his tenure as Grand Master, effectively achieving Pike’s goals in the one place Mazzini had failed. Whether his position as Grand Master had any greater significance to the World Revolutionary Movement, or whether he, like Pike in America and Weishaupt’s Illuminati in Germany, had merely been recruited and then infiltrated the Grand Orient while remaining loyal to the internationalists, is uncertain. What is certain is that the influence of his position as Grand Master was greater at the end of his tenure than it was at the beginning, and that the implication is that, by the end of the 19th century, the influence of the Grand Orient in Italy could be felt wherever the revolutions fomented by Lemmi and Mazzini extended (especially Austria and Latin America). With so many countries under the firm control of Lemmi’s henchmen, and all Grand Orient Masons owing their allegiance to him, it makes perfect sense to suppose that Lenin was the literal heir of the power wielded by Mazzini, even though he never held the title of Grand Master and was in no sense Italian himself. None of these men had anything resembling national loyalties.

83 “Exactly as Pike was afterwards, Cremieux was infiltrated into Freemasonry. He was a member of the Lodge of Mizraim, the Scottish Rite, and subsequently was initiated into the Lodges of the Grand Orient. Cremieux worked to unite the above named secret societies and became the Grand Master in France as did Pike in America, and Mazzini in Italy. Cremieux’s activities were financed by the Rothschilds and Montifiores. He engaged in the most ruthless forms of political intrigue and chicanery. The whole resources of the S.O.S. were used to try and make him Chief Executive to Louis Napoleon so he could promote policies which would further the Luciferian conspiracy from behind the scenes of the British government about the same time. But his double crossing methods were discovered, and when Louis Napoleon pulled off his coup d’etat on December 2, 1851, making himself Emperor Napoleon III, he made General Cavaignac his Prime Minister and threw Cremieux into prison. He was confined in the prisons of Vuicennes and Mazas. Upon release, Cremieux was selected to help direct the activities of Karl Marx and other revolutionaries including Louis Blanc, Ledrun, Rollin, Pierre, and many others,” (Carr, p. 119).
