I would be… protected by himself (Mr. Johnson) absolutely in my escape, and that on the death of President Lincoln, he (Vice-President Johnson) would become president of the United States, and that in this official capacity I could depend on him for protection and absolute pardon…
The Assassination Template: Andrew Johnson and Lyndon B. Johnson
The first thing one needs to understand is that this exact scenario happened once before, in 1865, but in that case conspirators were hanged, albeit all were patsies or small, disposable players. In that case, the assassin got away, was declared dead, but eventually he committed suicide decades later. Chalk it up to unwritten history, because the people who killed Lincoln wrote the history books, but it would hold up in any court.
The three key players in the JFK assassination were President Lyndon Johnson, President Richard Nixon, and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.
According to witness Madeline Brown, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, Howard Hunt, Clyde Tolson, Lyndon Baines Johnson, John McCloy and Richard Nixon were present at a meeting regarding the assassination of President Kennedy at the home of Clint Murchison the night prior to the killing. Nixon would himself appear in Dallas on the day of the killing. Behind them were a cadre of right-wing military officers, such as Gen. Edwin Walker, intelligence officers like Allen Dulles, oilmen like Howard Hunt and bankers like John McCloy. Dulles and McCloy would be appointed by Johnson to a “blue ribbon panel” later known as the infamous Warren Commission to investigate Kennedy’s death, so the findings were, of course, absolutely misleading, and insultingly absurd. At the time, the Justice Department wanted an independent commission to investigate the assassination but Johnson stopped it. This particular plot was big enough that it leaked to Klan members like Joseph Milteer, a rabid segregationist like Gen. Walker who was caught on tape boasting of a plan to kill Kennedy in Dallas, November 22 1963, “from an office building with a high-powered rifle” and that they would arrest a patsy immediately afterwards to throw off the public.
The plot could have only succeeded if Johnson, upon becoming president and assuming control of the armed services and the CIA and FBI, agreed to protect conspirators after the fact, which he clearly did. One often speaks of the unusual Lincoln-Kennedy parallels, but the most obvious one of all is this:
Andrew Johnson’s presidency almost 100 years prior was the result of conspirators who also knew they could count on his pardons and assistance after the fact, when his presidential powers could ensure immunity. As Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth is said to have put it in a conversation with Vice-President Andrew Johnson:
“I replied, ‘I will shoot him in the brain.’
“‘Then practically, from this time I am President of the United States,’ replied Vice-President Johnson and he added, ‘goodbye.’
Don’t Ask for the Truth if You Plan to Look Away
If there was any truth to this assertion, the first thing you would expect after a coup would be endless cover-ups with witness intimidation and disappearances. You would expect to see things like Kennedy’s missing brain and x-rays, which along with the Zapruder film which demonstrated conclusively there were shots from the Grassy Knoll and underscored the absurdity of the Lone Gunman theory, all designed to distract you from Johnson. President Johnson was terrified of being implicated in that conspiracy, as you can listen to here, discussing the assassination with John Connally, who was also shot in Dallas. They were discussing mobster Jimmy’s Hoffa’s threat to “tell all” in 1967 prior to Johnson’s re-election campaign, which he eventually withdrew from. Johnson talks about a statute of limitations for conspiracies regarding that assassination but it is already clear he knows there is none for murder.
You would expect to see things like Kennedy’s casket being dumped into the sea, in a munitions dump, and widespread destruction of evidence. You would expect to see Johnson seal records relating to the assassination for over 50 years, more than enough time to ensure those documents would be destroyed before the seal was lifted. You would expect Nixon to do the same. You would expect to see things like Nixon using code terms like “Bay of Pigs” to refer to the assassination and of course, you would expect 15 minutes of Watergate tapes erased numerous times by an idiotic secretary.
You would expect powerful media assets controlled by wealthy conspirators to tell you black is white, up is down, to do everything they could to mislead and confuse Americans.
You would expect a state-mandated disinformation script. You would expect a widespread and continuing effort by the CIA and FBI to conceal all evidence pointing to a conspiracy or Johnson’s involvement. As with any coup, you would expect a national and concerted media campaign attacking anyone who came close to the truth, and we saw that.
You would expect to see the corporate media use the national trauma that was the Kennedy assassination to manipulate our cognitive dissonance as we saw painfully contradictory evidence to the official story; to use the psychological defensive mechanisms of denial and anger to shut down our rational thinking and rather than question the actions of our government, trust them even more.
As you can see from the CIA’s 1967 memo to media assets in the broadcast and print media, from the New York Times to Washington Post, ABC, NBC,CBS, etc. this is exactly what happened and continues to this day. It was this memo from which the term “conspiracy theorist” emerged as a calculated derogatory label for anyone who connected the dots leading to Johnson. There is no jailer more potent than one which can imprison your mind, and that is what the corporate media does and will continue to do. It is for this reason that the greatest threat to American freedom has been, and will always be a controlled and unaccountable media that won’t tell you the truth because they are now parties to treason.
As there is no jailer more powerful than one who can imprison your mind, the corporate media is an active conspirator in the cover-up still protecting the resulting secret government. Your slave masters behind the petrodollar are not elected but are now extremely vulnerable, and until we rip the tongue out of the corporate media’s gaping maw, you will never be free. Had they been on our side since the assassination, the guilty would have been tried, and this would still be a democracy. Even living conspirators admit as much.
On January 23, 1923, William J. Burns, by then the acting director of the Department of Justice wrote “I have gone over with considerable interest the volume entitled “The Escape and Suicide of John Wilkes Booth” by Finis L. Bates of Memphis, Tennessee… The work contains very strong evidence in support of the old belief that Booth did escape and live many years after the assassination of President Lincoln…” Here’s a relevant portion:
All the conspirators against President Lincoln met here with Andrew Johnson conversant of the purpose to kidnap the President. On arriving at the hotel, about 3 o’clock, I called on Vice-President Johnson, when we talked over the situation and the changed conditions because of the surrender of Gen. Lee; and the Confederate forces at Appomattox, which had made the purpose of the kidnapping of President Lincoln and his delivery to the Confederate government at Richmond, to be held as a hostage of war, impossible, as the Confederate government had abandoned Richmond and the war between the States was considered practically over, which left, to my mind, nothing that we could do but accept defeat and leave the South, whom we had made our best efforts to serve, to her own fate, bitter and disappointing as it was. When Vice-President Johnson turned to me and said, in an excited voice and apparent anger:
I shall not forget to my dying day the clasp of his cold, clammy hand when he said:” ‘Make as sure of your aim as I have done in arranging for your escape. For in your complete success lies our only hope.”I replied, ‘I will shoot him in the brain.'” ‘Then practically, from this time I am President of the United States,’ replied Vice-President Johnson, and he added, ‘goodbye.’
“I could not understand his meaning, and stood silent, when with pale face, fixed eyes and quivering lips, Mr. Johnson asked of me:
” ‘Are you too faint-hearted to kill him?’
“As God is my judge, this was the first suggestion of the dastardly deed of the taking of the life of President Lincoln, and came as a shock to me. While for the moment I waited and then said:
‘To kill the President is certain death to me,’ and I explained to Vice-President Johnson that I had just been arrested by the guard as I was coming into the city over the East Potomac bridge that morning, and that it would be absolutely impossible for me to escape through the military line, should I do as he suggested, as this line of protection completely surrounded the city. Replying to this Mr. Johnson said:
” ‘Gen. and Mrs. U. S. Grant are in the city, the guests of President Lincoln and family, and from the evening papers I have learned that President Lincoln and wife will entertain Gen. and Mrs. Grant j at a box party to be given in their honor by the President and Mrs. Lincoln at Ford’s Theater this evening.’
“At my suggestion Vice-President Johnson assured me that he would so arrange and see to it himself, that Gen. and Mrs. Grant would not attend the theater that evening with the President and his family, and would also arrange for my certain escape. I replied:
” ‘Under these conditions and assurances I will dare strike the blow for the helpless, vanquished Southland, whose people I love.’
“Mr. Johnson left the room and after a little more than an hour returned, saying that it had been arranged as he had promised, and that Gen. Grant had been, or would be suddenly called from the city, and that, therefore, he and his wife could not attend the theater that evening with the President and Mrs. Lincoln, as had been prearranged, and that such persons as would attend and occupy the box at the theater with the President and wife would not interfere with me in my purpose and effort to kill the President, and this he thought an opportune time, and that I would be permitted to escape by the route over which I had entered the city during the forenoon of that day. That is, that I was to go out over the East Potomac river bridge, that the guards would be called in from this point by order of Gen. C. C. Augur that afternoon or evening, but if there should be guards on the bridge, I was to use the password *T. B.’ or *T. B. Road,’ by explanation, if need be, which would be understood by the guards, and I would be permitted to pass and protected by himself (Mr. Johnson) absolutely in my escape, and that on the death of President Lincoln, he (Vice-President Johnson) would become president of the United States, and that in this official capacity I could depend on him for protection and absolute pardon, if need be, for the crime of killing President Lincoln, which he had suggested to me and I had agreed to perform.
“Fired by the thoughts of patriotism, and hoping to serve the Southern cause, hopeless as it then was, as no other man could then do, I regarded it as an opportunity for an heroic act for my country and not the exercise of a grudge or any feeling of malice toward the President, for I had none against him as an individual, but rather to slay the President that Andrew Johnson, a Southern man, a resident of the State of Tennessee, should be made President of the United States, to serve the interests of the South. And upon the further promise made me by Mr. Johnson that he as President of the United States, would protect the people of the South from personal oppression and the confiscation of their remaining landed estates, relying upon these promises, and believing that by the killing of President Lincoln I could practically bring victory to the Southern people out of defeat for the South. Moved by this purpose and actuated by no other motives, assured by Mr. Johnson of my personal safety, I began the preparation for the bloody deed by going to Ford’s Theater, and among other things, arranging the door leading into the box to be occupied by Mr. Lincoln, which had already been decorated for the occasion, so that I could raise the fastenings, enter the box and close the door behind me so that it could not be opened from the outside and returned to the Kirkwood hotel.
I then loaded afresh my derringer pistol so that she would not fail me of fire, and met Vice-President Johnson for the last time and informed him of my readiness to carry out the promise I had made him. About 8:30 that evening we * left his room, walked to the bar in the hotel and drank strong brandy in a silent toast to the success of the bloody deed. We walked from the barroom to the street together, when I offered my hand as the last token of goodbye and loyalty to our purpose, and I shall not forget to my dying day the clasp of his cold, clammy hand when he said:” ‘Make as sure of your aim as I have done in arranging for your escape. For in your complete success lies our only hope.”I replied, ‘I will shoot him in the brain.’
” ‘Then practically, from this time I am President of the United States,’ replied Vice-President Johnson, and he added, ‘goodbye.’
“I returned to the theater. I saw the President and party later take their seats in the box. I moved my position to a convenient space, and at the time when the way was clear and the play was well before the footlights I entered the President’s box, closed the door behind me and instantly placed my pistol so near it almost touched his head and fired the shot which killed President Lincoln and made Andrew Johnson President of the United States and myself an outcast, a wanderer, and gave me the name of an assassin. As I fired the same instant I leaped from the box to the stage, my right spur entangled in something in the drapery on the box, which caused me to miss my aim or location on the stage and threw my shin bone against the edge of the stage, which fractured my right shin bone about six or eight inches above the ankle. (At this point St. Helen, exposing his shin, called attention to what seemed to be a niched or uneven surface on the shin bone. This I did not notice closely, but casually it appeared to have been a wound or fracture.)
I entered the President’s box, closed the door behind me and instantly placed my pistol so near it almost touched his head and fired the shot which killed President Lincoln and made Andrew Johnson President of the United States and myself an outcast, a wanderer, and gave me the name of an assassin.
” ‘Where are you going?’
“I replied, using the simple letters ‘T. B.’ as I had been instructed, and the guard then asked: ” ‘Where?’
“I then replied, ‘T. B. Road,’ as I had been instructed by Mr. Johnson, and without further question the guard called for assistance to help raise the gate quickly, when I at once again urged my horse to full speed and went on to Surrattville, where I waited for Herold to overtake me, as prearranged, whom I expected to follow closely behind. After waiting a few minutes Herold caqie up and . we rode the remainder of the night until about 3 o’clock on the morning of the 15th of April 1865, when we reached the home of Dr. Mudd, where Dr. Mudd, by cutting a sfitin it, removed my riding boot from the injured right foot and leg and proceeded to dress it by bandaging it with strips of cloth and pieces of cigar boxes, and the riding boot was left at the home of Dr. Mudd, where we remained during the rest of the day, and at nightfall proceeded on our journey, my bootless right foot being covered only by the sock and the leg as bandaged and splinted by Dr. Mudd.
“ESCAPE AND SUICIDE OF JOHN WILKES BOOTH ASSASSIN OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN” BY FINIS L. BATES 1907
“...At least eleven members of Congress were involved in the plot, no less than twelve Army officers, three Naval officers, and at least twenty-three civilians, one of which was governor of a loyal state. Five were bankers of great repute, three were nationally known newspapermen and eleven were industrialists of great repute and wealth…”
Former Union General Lafayette Baker, a confessed conspirator, one of the twelve army officers in the Lincoln assassination, 1868. See The Escape and Suicide of John Wilkes Booth.
Nicholas Biddle, a Rothschild central banker, boasts of creating a depression by withdrawing money from circulation in retaliation for Andrew Jackson’s withdrawal of federal funds.
The Money Masters – Andrew Jackson.
“Economic crises have been produced by us from the PEOPLE by no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation. Huge capitals have stagnated, withdrawing money from States, which were constantly obliged to apply to those same stagnant capitals for loans. These loans burdened the finances of the State with the payment of interest and made them the bond slaves of these capitals. . .”
“The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces, as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw Light upon its crimes. “I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe… corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.” – Abraham Lincoln, 1863
“Subsequent allegations that international bankers were responsible for President Lincoln’s assassination, would be made in the Canadian House of Commons, nearly seventy years later in 1934.
“The person who revealed this was a Canadian Attorney, Gerald G. McGeer. He had obtained evidence deleted from the public record provided to him by Secret Service Agents at the trial of John Wilkes Booth, after Booth’s alleged death. McGeer stated that it showed that John Wilkes Booth was a mercenary working for the international bankers. His speech would be reported in an article in the Vancouver Sun, dated, 2nd May 1934, which stated, “Abraham Lincoln, the murdered emancipator of the slaves, was assassinated through the machinations of a group representative of the International Bankers, who feared the United States President’s National Credit ambitions. “There was only one group in the world at that time who had any reason to desire the death of Lincoln. They were the men opposed to his national currency program and who had fought him throughout the whole Civil War on his policy of Greenback currency.” “Gerald G. McGeer also stated that Lincoln’s assassination was not purely because the International Bankers wanted to re-establish a central bank in America, but also because they wanted to base America’s currency on gold, which they of course controlled. They wanted to put America on a Gold Standard. This was in direct opposition to President Lincoln’s policy of issuing Greenbacks, based solely on the good faith and credit of the United States.
“The Vancouver Sun article also quoted Gerald G. McGeer with the following statement, “They were the men interested in the establishment of the Gold Standard and the right of the bankers to manage the currency and credit of every nation in the world. With Lincoln out of the way they were able to proceed with that plan and did proceed with it in the United States. Within eight years after Lincoln’s assassination, silver was demonetized and the Gold Standard system set up in the United States.”
“I understood from the meeting that the president was his subordinate in Masonry….”
Union Gen. Gordon Granger’s 1866 testimony before Judiciary Committee regarding the Scottish Rite, during Andrew Johnson’s impeachment. The man President Johnson was subordinate to was Confederate Gen. Albert Pike. Gen. Pike was wanted by the Union army on conspiracy charges, having fled to Canada after Lincoln’s assassination. He was then pardoned by Andrew Johnson, giving rise to charges of treason.
“But just when Lincoln’s nationalist money policies and our industrial strength overwhelmed the rebellion, President Lincoln was murdered. A dragnet went out for the Confederate secret service operators, accused of participation in the assassination. Albert Pike escaped and joined Jacob Thompson in Canada. Judah Benjamin fled to England, joining the exiled Robert Toombs and James Bulloch.
“In April 1866, a year after the murder of Abraham Lincoln, Albert Pike’s Supreme Council met in full costume inside the White House. There Lincoln’s successor President Andrew Johnson granted a pardon to Pike. The following year, the awed and grateful Johnson was granted advanced degrees 4 through 32 by the Scottish Rite. The Masons claim that Johnson’s Freemasonic involvement was an important reason why the pro-Reconstruction congressmen tried to impeach Johnson.”
by Anton Chaitkin, The Scottish Rite’s KKK Project
In 1957 Ray A. Neff of Gibbsboro, New Jersey, walked into Leary’s bookshop in Philadelphia and purchased a faded, second-hand book for fifty cents. Unbeknownst to Neff, inside that dusty military journal was a profound and stunning confession from the grave of a Union General and traitor, Lafayette Baker.
Booth was not alone, and according to Gen Baker, did indeed survive.
And as late as 1977, the FBI, did in fact investigate the issue of JOHN WILKES BOOTH and his possible survival. According to the FBI,
“These records contain correspondence dated 1922-23 of William J. Burns, former Director of the Bureau of Investigation, concerning a theory that Booth lived many years after the assassination of President Lincoln. Also included are the results of a 1948 examination by the FBI Laboratory of a boot said to be worn by Booth on the night of the assassination and a 1977 examination of a diary belonging to Booth.”
On January 23, 1923, William J. Burns, by then the acting director of the Department of Justice wrote
“I have gone over with considerable interest the volume entitled “The Escape and Suicide of John Wilkes Booth” by Finis L. Bates of Memphis, Tennessee…The work contains very strong evidence in support of the old belief that Booth did escape and live many years after the assassination of President Lincoln…”
In fear for his life, Gen. Baker wrote the aforementioned confession before he was fatally poisoned with arsenic in 1868. If someone today could forge this confession, he would have to learn two different ciphers, and then invent a time machine, because he would have to perform the deed no later than October 1872. The book itself is referred to in a Philadelphia probate hearing held October 14 and 15, 1872; when William Carter testified that Lafayette Baker gave him an English military journal in the days before he died, which Carter tried to decipher but couldn’t, even though he was familiar with codes from his days in the National Detective Police during the Civil War.
Carter also testified that he saw Baker writing his coded memoirs in the margins of numerous books; the same which were the subject of the hearing, and that Baker tried to give him about a dozen boxes of books and papers.
When John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, he was already famous for playing in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”, and the allusion to Booth is obvious– he’s “one of the sons of Brutus”. Johnson, who was in possession of a letter from Booth before the assassination, is also one of the the “sons”. Judas was Edwin Stanton– Lincoln’s Secretary of War, whom at the moment Lincoln died, actually did say “Now the ages have him and the nation now have I.”
Both diaries, Bakers and Booth’s, gave parallel accounts of the assassination. Both implicated, even boasted of a secret government council (the Scottish Rite) which in the interests of the British Crown has bound a nation, the United States of America, for over a century. (Gen. Baker’s coded diaries, incidentally, were written in the margins of a British military journal; Colburn’s United Service Magazine/Naval and Military Journal.) The coded book, its messages written in a sliding cipher, revealed that the true killers were led by Lincoln’s most trusted military advisor in the Civil War: Edwin McMasters Stanton.
About seven years later, the modus operandi described in that book was revisited in the Kennedy assassination. The infamous Lincoln and Kennedy parallels, for instance, are uncanny until you realize it was almost a copycat murder. The Lincoln and Kennedy murders were both bipartisan coups; and many of the masterminds in both assassinations belonged to the same Scottish Rite.
This aforementioned international secret society, the largest, has its headquarters temple in Washington DC, and curiously, it presently houses the crypt of Confederate Gen. Albert Pike, a Tennessee Ku Klux Klan Chief Judicial Officer, Imperial Wizard and 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Sovereign Grand Commander.
Much like we would see in 1963 in the Kennedy assassination; in 1865 at least two newspapers would publish highly detailed stories of the Lincoln assassination several hours before it ever took place. Moreover, in 1868 Lafayette Baker would confess in his coded diary that at least three newspaper publishers were involved, through blood money and disinformation, in the plot to kill Lincoln. Thus we move from the publishers’ lucky premonition to outright foreknowledge and complicity. This, too, was a betrayal of the public’s trust which the mass media repeated in 1963, but continues to maintain– particularly through the New York Times (JFK) and the Los Angeles Times (RFK).
As Anton Chaitkin wrote in the New Republic:
“A striking instance of the Confederate ‘Lost Cause,’ persisting and haunting the present century, is to be seen in the attic of The New York Times. Iphigenie Ochs married Arthur Hays Sulzberger in 1917. He succeeded her father Adolphe Ochs as publisher of The Times, which Mr. Ochs had bought in the 1890s. Adolphe Ochs and his father founded the “Baroness Erlanger” Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The hospital was named forJohn Slidell’s daughter who married the Confederacy’s chief financier Baron Emil Erlanger…Adolphe Ochs had married Iphigenie Wise, the daughter of B’nai B’rith’s Cincinnati leader Isaac Wise…”
In Kennedy’s case, intelligence agents in Russia read Soviet accounts of the Dallas ambush several hours before the hit took ever took place. By December, 1966, the KGB would finally determine Kennedy’s true murderer, and they concluded it was Lyndon Johnson.
When John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, he was already famous for playing in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”, and the allusion to Booth is obvious– he’s “one of the sons of Brutus”. Johnson, who was in possession of a letter from Booth before the assassination, is also one of the the “sons”. Judas was Edwin Stanton– Lincoln’s Secretary of War, whom at the moment Lincoln died, actually did say “Now the ages have him and the nation now have I.”
Baker’s decoded confession in Colburn’s United Service Magazine, an English military journal, was dated February 5, 1868 and read as follows:
“I am constantly being followed. They are professionals. I cannot fool them. In new Rome there walked three men, a Judas, a Brutus and a spy. Each planned that he should be king when Abraham should die. One trusted not the other but they went on for that day, waiting for the final moment when, with pistol in his hand, one of the sons of Brutus could sneak behind that cursed man and put a bullet in his brain and lay his clumsey [sic] corpse away. As the fallen man lay dying, Judas came and paid respects to the one he hated, and when at last he saw him die, he said ‘Now the ages have him and the nation now have I’ But alas, fate would have it Judas slowly fell from grace, and with him went Brutus down to their proper place. But lest one is left to wonder what happened to the spy, I can safely tell you this, it was I.”
It was signed Lafayette C. Baker. And he wasn’t as safe as he thought. Numerous attempts would be made on his life until he was finally poisoned with arsenic in 1868. His personal physician confirmed the poisoning by applying leeches behind his ears. Sure enough, as they became engorged, they dropped off dead.
General Lafayette Baker, chief of the National Detective Police Force and fellow conspirator, wrote Stanton’s plot was a vast, well financed gned Lafayette C. Baker. And he wasn’t as safe as he thought. Numerous attempts would be made on his life until he was finally poisoned with arsenic in 1868. His personal physician confirmed the poisoning by applying leeches behind his ears. Sure enough, as they became engorged, they dropped off dead.
General Lafayette Baker, chief of the National Detective Police Force and fellow conspirator, wrote Stanton’s plot was a vast, well financed attempt to seize control of the federal government.
According to witnesses who aided in John Wilkes Booth’s escape, Booth told them this conspiracy involved fifty to one hundred; and thirty-five in Washington alone.
This eyewitness account came almost a century before Baker’s coded journals were ever discovered, and matched Baker’s confession almost word for word. Likewise, in the Kennedy assassination it can be easily demonstrated that dozens were involved– most of them trusted officials from both parties; and chillingly, the Supreme Court’s Chief Justice, Earl Warren. In 1865, Andrew Johnson was not trusted by the president; in fact, actually avoided. During his term, the vice-president only had two meetings with President Lincoln after taking his oath of office in a disgraceful ceremony that smeared the entire Lincoln presidency. Andrew Johnson was totally drunk at the time he was sworn in, and it took years for the Lincoln administration to live it down.
Likewise, Lyndon Johnson was scarcely trusted by Kennedy. LBJ attracted even worse scandals, and still complained that the Kennedy brothers kept him out of important Cabinet meetings; this when Johnson was undermining the Kennedy’s war on the Mafia with his own connections to the underworld. In fact, a close friend of Johnson, Billy Sol Estes, would come to testify before a Texas grand jury that vice-president Johnson was directly involved in the murder and cover-up of a U.S. Agricultural Agent. On June 3, 1961, Agent Henry Marshall was found shot to death in his car in Franklin, Texas. On June 8, 1961, a local Justice of the Peace declared Marshall had committed suicide, but found next to Agent Marshall was a single-action bolt action rifle which the local authorities had alleged he loaded, shot, reloaded and shot into his head five times.2
When he died, Agent Marshall was on the trail of a multi-million dollar swindle of the federal government’s agricultural division. The scandal became known as the Billy Sol Estes Affair with LBJ a named conspirator by Estes himself, and moreover, Johnson’s own personal legal counsel.
Johnson, Estes testified, had ordered Mac Wallace (pictured below) to do the hit.
A 14 Point Fingerprint Match Links Johnson
Malcom Wallace, in 1951, had already been convicted of murdering Doug Kinser. With Johnson’s legal assistance, i.e. his personal attorney John Cofer, Wallace would walk away with a five year suspended sentence for murder…
According to the Warren Report t, there was a single fingerprint lifted from the carton designated “A” in the “sniper’s nest” which could not be linked with Oswald, any other employee of the Texas School Book Depository, or any law enforcement officer that had handled the carton. The fingerprint remains in the National Archives, labeled “Unknown.”
However, by 1998, a 14 point match with Malcolm Wallace’s prints would be made, thereby directly linking Johnson to the assassination. (Wallace’s prints were, of course, on record after his conviction.)
On March 9, 1998, A. Nathan Darby, A.L.C.E., a Certified Latent Fingerprint Examiner, and a member of the International Association for Identification, signed a sworn affidavit stating that he found a positive match between the “Unknown” print from Carton “A” and the 1951 print of Mac Wallace.
For easier comparison, the “Unknown’ print from the sniper’s nest on the right has been duplicated and superimposed in red over the Wallace print on the left. The match becomes obvious even to the layman.
We now know a decoy ambulance was employed in the transport of Kennedy’s body.4 The body was supposed to be in a black hearse, but it entered the Bethesda Naval Hospital through the rear entrance in an ambulance driven by Admiral Calvin Galloway, the man in charge at the hospital and an appointee of none other than Lyndon Johnson. Kennedy gave Johnson this special privilege to appoint the Secretary of the Navy to appease a monstrous ego. Indeed, Johnson once suggested the idea of a dual presidency, which Kennedy at first assumed was a joke. But Johnson was serious.
That unusual power given to Johnson meant the authority to control the whole navy itself. In terms of illicit deals with Mafia contractors, this could prove very profitable. One such contractor was the Pelican Tomato Company, an operation headed by a key figure in the JFK assassination: New Orleans Mafia don and Johnson associate, Carlos Marcello.
Throughout his years in the Senate, Marcello, via Johnson’s Texas bagman Jack Halfin, gave some $50,000 a year to Johnson, and these contracts were one reason why.5 Around the time of the murder, Ruby and Ferrie both collected some $7,000 from Marcello.
Ferrie’s library card would be found on Oswald upon his arrest for the murder of Officer J.D. Tippet and President Kennedy.
Ruby was also a friend of Chief Curry and Captain Fritz. (Chief Curry, in fact, was present when Johnson was sworn in as president on Air Force One.) Johnson’s right to appoint the Secretary of the Navy actually plays a critical part in the assassination. This is how Johnson controlled high-level officers like Admiral Calvin Galloway even before the murder.
Like the Texas coroner in the Marshall case, the Bethesda coroner, James Humes, would present a deliberately misleading autopsy to throw off honest investigators. Again we see the hand of Johnson.
By Texas law, the President’s body could not be removed from Parkland Memorial Hospital until Dr. Earl Rose performed an autopsy. But before that could happen Johnson ordered that the body be immediately flown to Washington, where his own coroners would be in charge. The first priority– make sure it would look like the work of a single gunman.
The Decoy Ambulance
When the First Lady arrived at the Bethesda Naval Hospital at about 6:55-7:05 p.m., November 22, 1963– she arrived at the front of the building with a heavily guarded casket that was actually empty.
Another navy ambulance had arrived earlier, which was driven by a man in a white surgical smock. That driver was Admiral Galloway. It pulled up at the rear of the building, and a greyish-pink shipping casket was unloaded. In Dallas the president was tenderly wrapped in a white linen shroud and placed in a bronze ceremonial casket. By the time Kennedy’s body arrived in Bethesda it was in a cheap shipping casket, and wrapped in a body bag. The final, cruelest indignity was that Kennedy was stripped naked and bereft of his shroud when they unzipped the bag.
You can imagine the surprise of the doctor falsely attributed with the original autopsy. At the Bethesda Naval Hospital, autopsy assistant Paul O’Conner could only describe Cmdr. James Joseph Humes as uncharcteristically “scared to death” when he unzipped the body bag, looked into Kennedy’s skull, and he saw no brain. Naturally. The brain contained evidence of trajectory and bullet fragments.
“Moreover, we know the identities of several of the individuals who were involved in the cover-up. These persons could be subpoenaed and finally asked tough, probing questions about their disgraceful behavior–and, if caught lying under oath, could be prosecuted for perjury. Who are these individuals? In my opinion, the list includes former WC counsels Arlen Specter and Wesley Liebeler, the three autopsy doctors, certain active and retired FBI agents and CIA officers, and former Dallas police lieutenant J. C. Day.”
From Preface; “More than a Reasonable Doubt” by Michael Griffith
Catholicism is a religion perennially opposed to freemasonry, and is virulently despised by them since 1314; when the original freemasons, the Order of theTemplars, were forced underground by the French King Philip de Belle and Pope Clement V for charges ranging from ritual murders to trampling the cross underfoot/urinating on it as a sign of their contempt for Jesus Christ and his compassion.
JFK, LBJ and Catholicism
The Dixiecrats in the Democratic Party wasted no time in appealing to their common intolerance of Catholics when Lyndon Baines Johnson ran against JFK for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1960. Johnson actually attempted to label the entire Kennedy family as a “Catholic conspiracy” in speeches throughout the US. The mudslinging failed, of course, but this attempt revealed an under-current of religious intolerance. Johnson appealed to this religious “wedge issue” to woo Protestant Conservative votes in the South when campaigning against JFK.
Complicity of Intelligence Apparatus
In both cases, the federal detective force (FBI and CIA in Kennedy’s case) were warned in advance of a plot to kill the president, and in both cases the warnings were deliberately ignored by those in charge of security; Edwin Stanton and J. Edgar Hoover, respectively.
In Lincoln’s case Louis Weichmann, a lodger at Mary Surrat’s boarding house, reluctantly reported to government officials in March of 1865 that he believed there was a conspiracy afoot to kill Lincoln. He was ignored. But after the murder a scapegoat was needed, and on the basis that Booth and conspirators met at the boarding house, Mary Surrat was hanged.
In Kennedy’s assassination, FBI Director Hoover was personally alerted numerous times of a plot to kill him in Dallas. A letter from the Oswald imposter to Valery Kostikov of the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City was intercepted November 9, 1963. Kostikov was the KGB officer in charge of assassinations in the western hemisphere. Ironically, Lee Harvey Oswald tipped off the FBI on September 17, 1963 that an assassination was being plotted. William S. Walters, a security clerk employed in the Bureau’s New Orleans office, gave D.A. Jim Garrison an affidavit stating that on the morning of November 17, 1963, he read a TWX that warned “an attempt to assassinate President Kennedy would be made in Dallas on November 22, 1963.”
When he was arrested, Oswald had the name, telephone number, and license plate number of FBI agent James Hosty. And after Kennedy was shot, Hosty was ordered to destroy a note left to him by Oswald; which he tore up and flushed down the toilet.
Nor did Hoover reveal that Jack Ruby was also an informant for the FBI, as was Lee Harvey Oswald; who was hired upon his return from Russia. Oswald was a double agent in military intelligence– that’s why no charges were pressed against him for his “defection.” The Russians themselves were suspicious of him as he walked into the Russian Embassy and denounced his citizenship, and offered classified radar data.
Although it was claimed that Oswald provided the information– flight paths and altitudes, e.g., that led to the downing of Gary Power’s U-2 spy plane; U.S. authorities made no effort to prosecute him upon his return. It’s possible the Russians downed Powers on their own with information provided by someone other than Oswald.
By 1963, a man claiming to be Oswald will offer to kill JFK in the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City. The Mexican government will warn U.S. officials, and they will be ignored. A man is photographed outside the embassy that day, and the man that claims he is Oswald bears no resemblance. As an undercover “defector” for the CIA, Oswald was the perfect patsy. The military-industrial establishment wanted to launch a war with Cuba.
Lee Harvey Oswald was told by intelligence officers that they wanted him to infiltrate a Communist conspiracy to kill JFK in Dallas. His FBI contact, one of several, was Special Agent in Charge James Hosty. To convince Castro sympathizers and agents he was genuine, he was given airtime to promote the communist agenda. A much publicized fight was staged between Oswald and a so-called “angry patriot” as he handed out “Hands off Cuba” flyers.
When Kennedy was shot, Hoover officially disowned Oswald. So in comes Jack Ruby, a mob lackey and friend of the Dallas police chief.
To be fair, some in the CIA were aware of the plot and rebelled against it. In Texas, on September 20, 1963, three days after Oswald alerted the FBI of the plot, Richard Case Nagell entered an El Paso bank and calmly shot holes in the ceiling. Then he simply waited for the police to arrive. He said he wanted to be in jail when Kennedy was assassinated. His registered letters to J. Edgar Hoover which warned of the plot were read but not answered.9 police to arrive. He said he wanted to be in jail when Kennedy was assassinated. His registered letters to J. Edgar Hoover which warned of the plot were read but not answered.9 (According to Assistant FBI Director William Sullivan, Hoover took special care to read all of his mail. For every letter received the sender or organization was checked out in the FBI’s Central Files before his staff answered it. Thousands and thousands of man-hours were spent and millions squandered on these background checks.)
Nagell knew Oswald, having met him in Texas. What Nagell was hired to do, but refused, was “arrow”, or kill, this patsy after setting him up for the shooting. This job eventually went to Jack Ruby.
At first they were secret guilds, entrusted to build the eariest Christian temples in Europe. That is, until the Crusades, when Templar Order became a larger secret society steeped in heretic Egyptian and Jewish sorcery (the cabala), and later, eastern heresy such as Johannism and Islamic mysticism and sects– particulalrly the Hashishshin, or Assassins. The Templars were quite powerful at the time the French Council of Vienne disbanded them in 1311– they encompassed France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and England. At the time of the Templar trial, circa 1313, the Order consisted of 15,500 knights, a vast number of squires and a host of lay brethren, who were all responsible to the Grand Master. It possessed more than 10,000 manors and several fortresses, including that of the Temple of Paris. The first military-industrial complex was a highly militant covert establishment rich enough to loan money to the European governments, which it did at exorbitant interest.
Church and state soon found itself challenged by an unaccountable institution. When King Phillip inherited a near bankrupt French kingdom, and attempted to tax the enormous wealth of the Templar Order, a series of mysterious political assassinations of leaders, clergymen and nobles supporting his efforts followed. By 1306, King Philip discovered the root of these assassination lay in the teachings of the Hashschin (or Assassins), an Islamic sect who revolutionized political subversion by introducing the first “programmed assassin.”
According to the CIA assassination training files for “Operation PB Success” :
“Assassination is a term thought to be derived from ‘Hashish’, a drug similar to marijuana, said to have been used by Hasan-Dan-Sabah to induce motivation in his followers, who were assigned to carry out political and other murders, usually at the cost of their lives.”
The Templars had adopted the teachings of Hasan-Dan-Sabah in their travels to the middle east, and employed them upon their return when they realized efforts were underway to tax their enormous wealth.
Realizing the string of mysterious deaths surrounding the attempts at taxation were linked directly to the Templars, King Phillip and Pope Clement V soon realized that the sovereignty of church and state was in immediate peril, and they united forces to attack the Templars. When the secret rituals of the Templars were exposed and the nature of the political assassinations surfaced; other charges and confessions followed; including sodomy, trampling the cross underfoot, alterations in the canons of the mass, idolatry– the worship of Baphomet, abnormal sex acts like kissing of the anus to demonstrate sub ordinance, etc. In addition to this there was the worship of Solomon’s gods, those for which he was condemned.
Remember that King Solomon lost favor with the Lord because his wives led him astray, and he followed other gods, including Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh, the god of Moab, and others. (Albert Pike once decribed a seance he attended in which the same devil Astoreth was summoned, accompanied by 330 naked spirits.) Solomon also built a temple for Moloch, a god worshipped with the mass incineration of children. * For such rebelliousness the glory of the Lord would depart from Solomon’s Temple, never to return.**
But these were the same gods the Templars appealed to, and still do. The freemasonic obsession with secrecy makes disturbing sense when you realize the worship of Moloch, of course, necessitated the sacrifice of children.
The adoption of Johannism, a heretical belief which claimed St. John denied the Virgin Birth, Christ’s resurrection, and set John the Baptist as the Christ figure; remains a significant part of Scottish Rite theology. Johannism remains entrenched in Templar indoctrinations, and it is still practiced by Democratic and Republican political leaders in masonic halls and temples in Washington DC.
The Templars in England, and those who fled there, would become the Scottish Rite, and they felt betrayed by the those Templars who were tried and found innocent: those in Portugal and Spain. (These Templars became new Papal Orders, Spain’s Order of Montessa and Portugal’s Order of Christ.)
Pike and DeMolay
As far back as 1848, in his Arkansas mansion, Albert Pike began formulating his plans for Luciferian global domination. And because his wealth was considerable, he had in his possession the very skull of Jacques de Molay. This skull, once Pike had found it, would then be used in magic rituals involving the transference of power or special attriubutes, or “magical current”. Pike did, in fact, believe he was the martyred Jacques de Molay in a previous incarnation. It is for this reason that one key ritual in freemasonry involves drinking from human skulls, as duly noted by President John Quincy Adams in hisAddress to the People of Massachusetts.
The Order of the Templars were and are known for heretical initiation rites such as ritual murders, trampling the cross underfoot, and even urinating and spitting on the crucifix as a sign to their brethren of their total denial of Christ and his compassion. This fact remains fiercely contested by freemasons, but consider: Whether or not the charges leveled against the Templars were true in the beginning, they are now. By 1865, the terrorist arm of the Scottish Rite–the KKK, actually went one step further in the desecration of the cross by burning it. Pike created this cross-burning ritual to symbolize his vengeance against Christianity– particularly Catholicism, for the death of Jacque DeMolay, who was burned at the stake.
And it was to this ancient Scottish Rite, this British freemasonry, to which Albert Pike, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Andrew Johnson, John Wilkes Booth, Edwin McMasters Stanton, Lyndon Baines Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover belonged. Ronald Reagan also belongs to this rite. On February 11, 1988, a group of high-ranking Freemasons gathered in the Oval Office of the White House to honor and be honored by President Reagan. He was made an honorary Scottish Rite Mason by the Grand Lodge of Washington D.C. Curiously, Reagan was reelected exactly 100 years after the release of Pope Leo XIII’s Humanum Genus Encylical on Freemasonry of April 20, 1884. Five years to the date of its release, on April 20, 1889, Adolf Hitler was born.
It’s easy to see why legitimate Christianity opposes Freemasonry. Pike’s legacy plays into both the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations. Scottish Rite freemasons were critically involved in both.
After Lincoln died, Andrew Johnson soon enraged the Radical Republicans (who were the left wing back then!), when he enabled the creation of the Black Codes– the Jim Crow laws that would oppress Southern blacks for the next hundred years.
Lyndon Johnson escalated the war in Vietnam, and made his peace with the Mafia– leaving the nation to be raped and plundered by organized crime until Hoover died, and Nixon resigned.
In both plots, a double was employed for the killer– for Oswald and for John Wilkes Booth. Oswald’s double was seen in Mexico City and Dallas.
Booth’s double was allegedly killed by Scott Corbett or committed suicide in a barn. But the corpse shown to Booth’s doctor and dentist was not recognized. Moreover, Booth had a tattoo with the initials JWB on his wrist, which was not present on the corpse. The dental records didn’t match. Two fillings that Booth’s dentist made weeks earlier were not on the corpse.
And Scott Corbett, who supposedly shot Booth but actually murdered a patsy, died insane; just like Jack Ruby, who shot the patsy Oswald.
In a modus operandi betraying the coup, the general public, including families; had unusual difficulty accessing the corpse of Booth and Oswald. In an unambiguous attempt to prevent future identification of the body, Booth’s double was buried under tight security in a jail cell at the Old Penitentiary Building in Geeseborough Point, and the key given to Edwin Stanton. Booth was also spotted in such widely scattered places as Mexico, Oklahoma, and London after his alleged death.13
Like Booth, Oswald was also buried under extremely tight security. A huge force of Secret Service men and police stood on guard as Oswald was buried in a pine box at Rose Hills Cemetery, Fort Worth, Texas. He was placed in a vault with reinforced steel bars. A policeman was left on duty to protect against any possible desecration. Or grave robbers.
In both assassinations, the new presidents would eventually face charges of conspiracy by members of their own party. Andrew Johnson, having been left an incriminating note by John Wilkes Booth, would be accused of conspiring to murder Abraham Lincoln before Congress.14 Booth’s diary, left in Stanton’s care, had several missing pages in the days leading up to the assassination date: April 14, 1865. This implicated Johnson because Stanton was in his Cabinet, and both knew Stanton was the sole reason Johnson was in power.
Lyndon Baines Johnson did not escape suspicion, either. He, too, was in power only through the complicity of FBI Director Hoover, and LBJ would come to be accused by members of his own party as the Clay Shaw trial exposed the Warren Commission’s mockery of justice.
Among those to implicate LBJ directly and die soon afterwards was Lee Harvey Oswald15 and Jack Ruby 16. Coincidentally, in late 1967 and early 1968, just as Jim Garrison’s case against Shaw had effectively debunked the Warren Commission and more evidence implicated LBJ and J. Edgar Hoover; Johnson took the highly unusual step of refusing to run in 1968. This happened at a time when Jim Garrison stated that ultimate responsibility for JFK’s murder rested on Johnson’s shoulders.17
This would be the second time in a decade that Lyndon Johnson would be a key suspect in a federal murder trial. As for Lincoln: in one of Lafayette Baker’s coded messages, he revealed that:
“…at least eleven members of Congress were involved in the plot, no less than twelve Army officers, three Naval officers, and at least twenty-three civilians, one of which was governor of a loyal state. Five were bankers of great repute, three were nationally known newspapermen and eleven were industrialists of great repute and wealth…eighty-five thousand dollars was contributed by the named persons to commit the deed”.
Lee Harvey Oswald and Clay Shaw’s phone books both contained the same false addresses that were actually sliding ciphers with numbers to the local CIA office and Jack Ruby18 (The same post office address to one “Lee Odom”, e.g., was used to denote Ruby’s telephone number, and found in Shaw and Oswald’s books). Oswald used a sliding cipher similar to the one Lafayette Baker used in his coded confession; the latter which wouldn’t be discovered until 1957.19
In Lincoln and Kennedy’s murders, at least one governor was involved. In Kennedy’s case it was John Connally. Besides urging the unnecessary trip to Dallas, Connally argued vehemently with Kennedy’s point man, Jerry Bruno, over proposed changes in the route to the Dallas Trade Mart. It was Bruno’s job to travel to the site in advance of the president to insure everything would go smoothly and safely, and he expressed due concern for the president’s safety. He told Connally that the route through Dealy Plaza left Kennedy vulnerable to sniper fire. The sharp left turn on Houston and Elm Street would slow the motorcade to a crawl as it approached the Grassy Knoll. So a direct drive to the Dallas Trade Mart was suggested by the White House; essentially scrapping the parade route.
But Connally demanded that the route through Dealy Plaza not be changed, and he even threatened to boycott Kennedy’s visit if he didn’t have his way! When Bruno continued to object, Connally got on the phone and in Bruno’s presence, he faked a call to the White House. Bruno was tricked into complying.20 Moreover, a letter from Oswald to Connally written in January of 1962 revealed the governor– like several of Johnson’s naval appointees that participated in the conspiracy– had previous contact with Oswald.
Coupled with the fact that Johnson’s last argument with Kennedy on November 21, 1963, was over Johnson’s insistence that Connally ride with him in the rear vehicle rather than in the president’s lead car, it becomes obvious both knew of the conspiracy 21. Johnson must have known his good friend was in danger; just like he knew Kennedy planned to drop him from the ticket and end his political career.22His argument with Kennedy on the night of November 21 was so heated the First Lady could hear it from outside the presidential suite, room 850 of the Hotel Texas in Fort Worth. Johnson finally stormed out of the suite when he didn’t get his way. 23
Ironically, Kennedy’s final dictated words to Evelyn Lincoln were: “Johnson will not be on the ticket”. 24
And as the shots were fired at Dealy Plaza, Senator Ralph Yarborough saw something even more interesting than the puffs of smoke coming from the Grassy Knoll. In the midst of the commotion he turned and saw Johnson was listening to a walkie talkie radio hanging over the rear seat; which was “turned down real low”. After David Ferrie’s death, four rifles and a radio transmitter tuning unit would be found in his apartment.
Though religious and racial intolerance played a major role in motivating Hoover’s role, much of his actions can also be explained by the fact that he was being blackmailed. Miami Mafia don Meyer Lansky controlled J. Edgar Hoover and therefore quietly controlled the Mafia and FBI, and he did so with a cherished photograph of a cross-dressing Hoover performing oral sex on his partner and Associate Director, Clyde Tolson.
It was for this reason only that Hoover claimed the Mafia didn’t exist, and let the Mafia triumph. That, and the fact that the Mafia fixed the horse races for him to keep him happy.25 So it was no surprise that people like Frank Sturgis, E. Howard Hunt, Edgar Eugene Bradley, G. Gordon Liddy and Jim Bradin were dutifully protected by Hoover. Hoover went out of his way to insure the killers would not be extradited from those states were they found refuge. These executioners were at the Texas Schoolbook Depository Building, Dealy Plaza, Parkland Memorial Hospital, and Bethesda Naval Hospital dressed as Secret Service men– three were dressed as tramps. Many of the conspirators escaped to California and found protection under then-governor Ronald Reagan– in Santa Ana, Bakersfield, El Monte, and Northern California. 26 Some conspirators fled to Canada, others, like Sam Giancana fled to Mexico. Lansky eventually went to Israel, and was therein protected by right-wing Jewish freemasons and the ADL, a right-wing front and odd extension of the Scottish Rite. The Anti-Defamation League.
Johnson and Hoover Knew They’d be Fired
The are some in the mainstream media who claim that “rumours” about J. Edgar Hoover hating the Kennedy brothers and Martin Luther King, Jr. are unfounded or exaggerated. You should take special note of any element of the print and broadcast media that ignores or downplays Hoover’s legendary hatred of the Kennedys and King.
Now consider the fact that Hoover knew President Kennedy planned to fire both him and Johnson if reelected in 1964; largely at Attorney Gen. Robert Kennedy’s prompting because of Hoover’s ties to Mafia chieftain Myer Lansky and others. Had this come to pass, Hoover would have lost the immunity from prosecution he enjoyed as Director of the FBI. His ties to Lansky and other mobsters exposed; Hoover stood to be prosecuted for using federal law enforcement funds and personnel to protect the interests of the Mafia.
Lyndon Johnson, already named as an accomplice before a Texas Grand Jury by his friend Billy Sol Estes; stood to be prosecuted for the murder of Henry Marshall, a federal agricultural agent about to expose Johnson’s link to the mob and defrauding of the government in an illegal cotton allotment scheme.
Nor was Hoover’s crackdown on the KKK any more credible than his hunt for JFK’s assassin. William Sullivan, his assistant director, remembered a racist in word and deed who had to be pressured to investigate crimes against Jews, blacks and other minorities.27 When Hoover did infiltrate the KKK, the paramilitary/terrorist arm of the Scottish Rite; he did so not to bring anyone to justice, but apparently to insure the link between both secret societies would never be exposed.
Even as Lyndon Johnson passed important civil rights legislation, Hoover undermined their implementation at will be using a covert establishment of racist judicial and law enforcement agencies inclined to impede the prosecution of the Ku Klux Klan. Why? Because at the time, at least two Supreme Court justices were members of the Ku Klux Klan. Not to mention several Senators and Congressmen (Dixiecrats).
To be fair, Lyndon Johnson was no racist. He did give us the Civil Rights Act. Andrew Johnson, in comparison, fought tooth and nail against the proposed Civil Rights acts during reconstruction.
Johnson’s actions on the day of the assassination, from a call to Rose Kennedy from aboard Air Force One, were unusual and contradictory. As he called Rose Kennedy to console her, he was drinking Kennedy’s bottled water, and calmly eating vegetable soup while Jackie Kennedy sat by her husband’s casket and wept. Prior to landing he then argued vehemently that he be allowed to disembark before President Kennedy’s casket as he was now the Commander in Chief. (Appalled at his callousness before the slain leader, he was ignored by the passengers, and Johnson stewed over this for days.)
The Manchurian Candidate
As a professional assassination specialist fired by Kennedy after the Bay of Pigs fiasco, Allan Dulles had an active role in every stage of the planning and cover-up. He engineered the deaths of several foreign leaders before his failed attempts on Fidel Castro. The study of historical assassinations was his forte, and by 1961 Edwin Stanton’s set-up of Lincoln was already known; and because it was a successful plan, it was about to be revisited. Regardless, Lafayette Baker’s confession was discovered purely by accident.
While director, Allan Dulles was in charge of various mind control programs in the CIA such as MK-ULTRA’s Operation Artichoke and Radio Hypnotic Intracerebral Electronic Dissolution of Memory (RHIC-EDOM).29
The CIA hoped to use hypnosis to program specified psychological profiles into assassins that would stand up to possible interrogations and torture by forgetting who sent them and why; a “Manchurian Candidate” akin to the brainwashed American soldier returning from the Korean war that was first popularized in Richard Condon’s novel of the same name, which then became a popular film.
In “The Manchurian Candidate”, the North Koreans use hypnosis to program Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) to act as a hit man using an ordinary deck of playing cards as his remote control. Once back home, when he hears the key phrase “Why don’t you pass the time playing a little solitaire?” he starts laying out the cards until he comes to the queen of diamonds, which is the second key that will clear the way for final instructions, after which he kills and then can’t remember doing so.
On July 19, 1975, Sam Giancana was found shot to death five days prior to his appearance before the Church Committee. The federal government was investigating the CIA/Mafia plots for the first time. Giancana took seven shots to head, mouth, and throat, and in a subsequent search police found movie equipment and a film starring his friend Frank Sinatra stored in his basement. That film was “The Manchurian Candidate”, a box-office hit pulled from release after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated shortly after its premier. It remained locked away for almost 30 years until its re-release in 1987. The movie stars Sinatra as Shaw’s deprogrammer, and Angela Lansbury.
Much of the information the CIA had on hypnoconditioning came from Nazi Germany; who under a former SS Officer, Wilhelm Wulff, hoped to program the perfect assassin: one who would kill without regard for his personal safety. A western version of the suicide bomber, so to speak. Dulles wanted the same thing.
To achieve these ends everything from hypnosis to mind-altering drugs were employed. And from the SS war criminals the CIA hired to hunt down the Communists, we got what they knew about Hitler’s mind-control program.
Oswald associate David Ferrie was a CIA operative, and a skilled psychologist and hypnotist. Witnesses attest he sometimes hypnotized Oswald.30 This is very significant. In the Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. assassinations, because both killers had links to the same CIA hypnoconditioner.
James Earl Ray and Sirhan Sirhan in fact, may have been programmed by the same hypnoconditioner– a Los Angeles CIA consultant by the name of Dr. William Joseph Bryan Jr.31 Interestingly, Bryan was also the technical consultant for the Sinatra film “The Manchurian Candidate”.
Soon after his visits with several Los Angeles hypnotists, one of which Bryan claimed was himself, Ray went to Memphis and allegedly killed King. (Unlike Sirhan, however, Ray may never have fired a gun, an argument so compelleing the King family believed Ray innocent)
Dr. Bryan, like many other figures directly involved in the murders of the Kennedy brothers and King, would die under mysterious circumstances in the spring of 1977; this at a time when the JFK case was reopened and key witnesses and conspirators everywhere conveniently died (e.g. John Rosselli, Sam Giancana). In Bryan’s case, the coroner determined he died of natural causes before any autopsy was performed. Johnson was dead, but again, the pattern of suspiciously timed deaths and spurious autopsies that shadowed every major investigation remained. Ray, when he was arrested, apparently took several books on hypnosis with him after escaping the police dragnet in Memphis. These were found by Canadian investigators in the Toronto boarding house where Ray had been staying before his arrest.
TV Can Kill
If you remember the fall of the Soviet Union on August 19, 1991, when there was an attempt to destroy the emerging Russian democracy; the first target of the communist hardliners was not an oil field, a nuclear silo, or an army base. Communist tanks headed for a Moscow television station, which illustrates the role of broadcast stations ascritical military assets; powerful weapons of disinformation and psychological warfare. Without the airwaves to provide their own brand of “Radio Hypnotic Intra-Cerebral Electronic Dissolution of Memory,” the task of making the masses forget their misery under Communism and turning them against the new regime proved impossible for the hard-liners.
When NATO bombed Serbia in early 1999, knowing Slobodan Milosovic had full controll of the airwaves, they bombed railways, oil field, factories, etc. But they forgot a crucial military target that nearly brought a fatal confrontation with Russia. They left Serb television stations alone, and these, predictably, polarized support for a leader that just months earlier, wanted Milosovic of office.
Segments of the population particularly susceptible to electronic biomanipulation includes, but is not limited to, disassociative personalities such as schizophrenics (which can be targeted specifically with a more predictable reaction). Indeed, the first experiments in mind control and creating programmed assassins (Project Artichoke, MK-ULTRA) involved prisoners and mental patients. Of particular interest here are the experiments in Radio Hypnotic Intra-Cerebral Electronic Dissolution of Memory (RHIC-EDOM) of the early sixties– mind control experiments which after a government crackdown in the 1970s, was moved into the private sector.
However, Spahn Ranch, Jonestown, and Heaven’s Gate demonstrates that a combination of calculated isolation, hypnosis, and psychoactive drugs can make anyonesusceptible to mind control. Charles Manson isolated his followers in a California desert, Spahn Ranch. Jim Jones isolated his followers in Guyana. Marshall Appewhite had a home in San Diego, where his followers lived carefully isolated lives and male followers castrated themselves. The castration was not without purpose. By drastically eliminating testosterone, the subjects became submissive and reduced to a commonpsychological bandwith. Thus, the critical role of isolation as a prerequite for programming is clearly demonstrated.
It has been estimated that twenty percent of the population can be unwittingly hypnoconditioned– even through the airwaves; and would rate a Grade 5 on the Hypnotic Induction Scale used to preselect a programmable assassin. Such a person would have a dissociative ego state (like an imaginary childhood playmate) that could easily be recalled and built up into a second personality. This second personality could then be programmed to kill through “trigger mechanisms” implanted by the hypnotist, such as visual or verbal cues that activate the programmed response.
IIn August of 1976, John Roselli would be found with his legs sawed off, and stuffed in a 55 gallon oil drum. His last meeting was with one of the conspirators in the Kennedy assassination– Santos Trafficante. (Trafficante worked directly with Dulles, John Rosselli, and Sam Giancana in the attempts to kill Castro). The barrel was weighed down with chains, sealed and dumped in Dumbfoundling Bay off the Florida coast, but the gasses from the decomposing corpse caused it to rise to the surface.32 Just a few months before in April of 1976, he was grilled before the Church Committee on earlier claims regarding the Castro retaliation theory– that Fidel Castro turned the CIA/Mafia hit teams against JFK when Robert Kennedy cracked down on the Mafia at home. The Mafia felt especially embittered and wrongly assumed that Dulles informed the Kennedys that Mafia hit men would be used in the attempts.
As Attorney General Robert Kennedy seriously attacked the mob for the first time in American history, a wily Castro would have enough of a case to turn these killers against Kennedy– their unwitting employer at the Bay of Pigs. All Castro had to do was send the killers back to exact revenge, and he did, starting with Trafficante and Rosselli’s men.
Thus it should be no surprise that the last attempt to kill Castro occurred during a motorcade using high-powered rifles, a triangulation of cross-fire, and a sniper on the roof of a tall Havana building. This modus operandi repeated itself exactly in Dallas.33 It bore the mark of Allen Dulles; who simply modified the same ambush he used in Cuba. The subsequent cover-up, the most complex phase involving key police, medical and forensic personnel that had to be planted or controlled beforehand, seemed based on the Stanton plan.
After Lincoln and Kennedy’s murders, a grim fate befell most of the conspirators. Much to his surprise, Booth survived only to die universally detested after a life in hiding. Stanton died four years after Lincoln; disgraced and alone, just like Laffayette Baker wrote in 1868.
Andrew Johnson, like Lyndon Johnson, would not serve a second term. Both would die ten years after the death of the murdered leaders.
The massive scale of the conspiracy served an important purpose: the 8 leading conspirators knew the president’s murder would outrage the nation, and that only a large and complex conspiracy could divert and dilute ultimate responsibility from the key conspirators and actual mastermind. In Lincoln’s case, only eight people knew all the conspirators.
Disloyal officers would put their subordinates in compromising positions to insure their silence. Hoover did this to his own agents when they were forced swallow The Great Lie; that Oswald acted alone, even as they picked up bullets proving there was several gunmen and interviewed scores of witnesses who heard the shots come from the Grassy Knoll.34 Or when they removed the front windshield, which had a bullet hole to verify that claim; which was kept in the White House basement during the Johnson administration. As a trophy of sorts, apparently.
Union General Lafayette Baker, a self-admitted conspirator in the Lincoln assassination, would die of arsenic poisoning after numerous assassination attempts and threats by Sergeant Silas T. Cobb, the officer who enabled the escape of Booth at the Navy Yard Bridge. Baker’s doctor verified such poisoning by placing leeches behind the general’s ears, and sure enough when they had their fill of blood they’d fall off dead.
The RFK Assassination
When they arrived at the estate of actress Sharon Tate, they were taking “handfuls” of acid and each Family member had an extra set of clothes. It was the summer of 1969. When the Manson Family left the Tate residence, the pregnant actress would be found butchered along with several others in a killing spree that shocked the nation. What became known as the the Tate-LaBianca murders was actually an attempt to start a race war– with Charles Manson hoping to pin the blame on the Black Panthers.
The swastika carved in Manson’s forehead is there for a reason.
Instrumental to conditioning is the isolation of the subjects. David Koresh and Jim Jones, for instance– their doomed subjects were all products of calculated isolation done to insure success in behaviour modification. Manson chose the Spahn Ranch, an abandoned movie set in the middle of the desert where followers could trip for days on endless supplies of LSD. Similarly, Koresh chose Waco, and Jones chose Guyana– all are isolated, remote places, or were. (See The Psychosocial Manipulation of the Human Population.)
And what Manson did was prove one could be programmed to kill.
On June 5, 1968, a group calling itself America United held a press conference in Westwood, near the UCLA campus. But it was just a two-man show of Hilder and Steinbacher. The pamphlet accurately described the true nature of the Freemasons and several of its branches, including the Illuminati, the Theosopists, the Rosicrucians. (Notably absent was the KKK.) Yes, the Illuminati did begin in Bavaria in 1776 under Adam Weishaupt, and yes, this occult fraternity was formed to wage Satan’s war against Christianity. That’s why, by 1884, several European countries had been forced to attack Freemasonry in Holland, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Bavaria, Savoy and other parts of Italy. They were attacked either through special enactments branding the society as pernicious and criminal, or through delating the masons to the Catholic Church.
But there was one outstanding truth in Steinbacher’s prattle: “The success of the Illuminati lay in enlisting the services of dupes, and by encouraging the fantasies of honest visionaries or the schemes of fanatics, by flattering the vanity of the ambitious, and by playing upon the passion for wealth and power. It was this way that the Illuminati were able to secure the services of countless thousands.”
And isn’t it strange that Steinbacher and Hilder would bring up the issue of the Illuminati on June 5th 1968, the day of RFK’s murder, when it was only years later that it would be disclosed that Sirhan made numerous references to the Illuminati in his notebook in the weeks before he shot RFK? How did Hilder and Steinbacher know the Illuminati was involved in the RFK killing years before the disclosure, unless they knew Sirhan or his accomplices beforehand? Sirhan was in fact, a Rosicrucian freemason. And claimed he was a member of the Illuminati.
On June 3, 1968, Jerry Owen, a Santa Ana televangelist, stopped at a Los Angeles sporting goods store to pick up a robe, shoes and trunks for a boxer he had an interest in. He was going to drop them off in Hollywood to decorate them with shamrocks for a fighter named O’Reilly.
While he stopped at a red light at 7th and Grand, two young men– one of them allegedly Sirhan Sirhan– asked for ride, and hopped into the back without waiting for answer. At a stoplight at Wilshire and Vermont, the pair got out and the taller one began talking to a well-dressed man about 35, and a “dirty blonde girl” about 21. He noted that the pair were sporting the same occult medallions around their necks. These people would emerge again at the Ambassador Hotel.
In the RFK murder, hypnosis would play role in the assassination. Sirhan was practicing autohypnosis techniques in the days leading up to the assassinations. To this end Sirhan used candles and mirrors, for instance. And the trigger mechanism is almost certainly the words “port wine”, since he was in the kitchen shortly before shooting RFK. This Sirhan had scrawled into his diary numerous times, along with the unusual repetition of the lines “RFK must be assassinated”, which was written over and over again until it filled the page.
Even though the LAPD would soon use hypnosis in investigative techniques and did not question its potential for misuse, defense attornies for Sirhan like Luke McKissack refused to allow his client access to a hypnotherapist to investigate whether or not the trigger mechanism for the post-hypnotic response was scrawled in his notebook.
Knowing what we know about Charles Manson’s hypnoconditioning of his family of killers and the CIA’s MK-ULTRA mind control program that sought to perfect the programmed assassin; there has been no effort to deprogram Sirhan to ascertain who sent him and why, or if he took LSD before the murder; or to reveal the identity of the “Master” who approached him as he wrote in his notebook, or to ask whether or not he and James Earl Ray had ties to the same CIA hypnoconditioner, Dr. Williams Joseph Bryan, Jr. Bryant, if you recall, bragged about his role in the murders before his suspicious death in a Las Vegas hotel room in 1977, precisely when Congress was investigating the link between the King and Kennedy assassinations.
Around the time King and RFK were killed, Mick Jagger was heavily involved in the occult. Anita Pallenberg, a former German model and self-proclaimed witch, was then sleeping with Keith Richards and Brian Jones. Jones, later found dead in his swimming pool, even claimed to “have a witch’s teat”. This occult influence reflected in their music for several years. In 1969 and ’68, respectively, the Rolling Stones released Their Satanic Majesty’s Request, and in an earlier hit from Beggar’s Banquet, “Sympathy for the Devil”, Jagger writes:
“Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
stole many a man’s soul and faith
I was ’round when Jesus Christ
had his moment of doubt and pain
made damn sure that Pilate
washed his hands, and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you. Won’t you guess my name?
But what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game
I stuck around St. Petersburg
’til I saw it was a time for a change
killed the Czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank, held a general’s rank
when the blitzkriegs raged
and the bodies stank
pleased to meet you won’t you guess my name?
I watched with glee
while your kings and queens
fought for ten decades
for the Gods they made
I shouted out who killed the Kennedys?
when after all it was you and me
let me please introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
and I lay traps for troubadours
who get killed before they reach Bombay…
Just as every cop is a criminal
and all the sinners saints
as heads is tails
just call me Lucifer
’cause I’m in need of
So if you meet me have some courtesy
have some sympathy, and some taste
use all your well-learned politesse
or I’ll lay your soul to waste…”
True to the spirit of lyrical troubadour knights that flourished from the 11th to the end of 13th century– Jagger delivers a profoundly succinct and narrative lyric that traces the path of the devil throughout history.
Or rather, the Rothschild banking dynasty.
Even he notes the Kennedy assassinations are linked, and moreover, he alludes to the Freemasons through the mention of doomed troubadours and the fight of kings and queens over ten decades “for the Gods they made.” Ten decades marks the centennial parallel between the Lincoln and Kennedy assassination. And he alludes to the Nazis, and the Communist revolution alluded to decades earlier in Pike’s letter to Mazzini. Most telling is his reference to Lucifer; as both world wars were envisioned by the Luciferian freemasons Pike and Mazzini.
As early as the late fifties, CIA Director Allen Dulles was experimenting with the use of LSD and hypnosis to program assassins in a project called “Operation Artichoke”. At first they experimented with colored prisoners, and then moved on to soldiers in the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion.
And Charles Manson, having spent most of his life in California prisons during that time; he may have witnessed the experiment conducted first hand. He would soon program a family of murderers using exactly the same technique the CIA used in their experiments– a combination of LSD and hypnosis. Hypnoconditioning was employed in the Bay of Pigs invasion to prevent Castro’s interrogators from determining who sent the CIA/Mafia hit teams.
For example, the implanted post-hypnotic suggestion can be used to conceal the hypnoconditioner’s identity after the killing: “When you are asked your date of birth, your mind will become blank. You will laugh uncontrollably, and say that everything you have said up to that point is a lie.”
In the programmed assassin, post-hypnotic suggestions are also used to trigger the LSD flashback; bringing the subject into a preconditioned kill mode fashioned by the hypnoconditioner.
Prior to programming, the subject is screened to ensure a high ranking in the Hypnotic-Induction Profile used to select the killer. Sirhan Sirhan was Grade 5, the most susceptible personality profile. He had a dissociative personality that could be manipulated to produce another ego state– the killer. The programmed response might be triggered by a visual and/or verbal cue; the latter employing a second operative. The cue could even be the sight of a girl in a polka dot dress. Anyone who has ever experimented with acid knows flashbacks can take place years or months after the initial experiment. These flashbacks usually come about unpredictably, on their own. But given the proper trigger at the right time, especially when the trip was reinforced with hypnosis, the potential for disaster increases exponentially. The flashback, incidentally, is not a physiological, but psychological process.
There have been cases where men have been convicted for using hypnoconditioning to induce others to perform a murder. To this day people shudder at Charles Manson’s infamous ability to hypnotize and control his followers to this day. During the trial women followers shaved off their hair and carved swastikas into their foreheads, picketing the Los Angeles Criminal Courthouse building. Later, another Manson Family member, “Squeaky” Fromme, would try to kill President Ford in front of a San Francisco Hell Fire Club, a club of ancient occult origins now known as hangouts for sado-masochistic freemasons. Ford himself was on the infamous Warren Commission handpicked by John F. Kennedy’s true killer– President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Even Manson seemed to know who killed JFK.
Perhaps the most compelling and credible motive one ought to note here when considering Hoover and Johnson: self-preservation. Like Johnson, in the weeks before the president was killed, Hoover already knew the Kennedys were trying to fire him. Jimmy Hoffa had hired a private detective to bug Peter Lawford’s home in California. It was here that Hoffa recorded the president having sex with Marylin Monroe, and in between, he also recorded highly confidential conversations about firing the FBI Director.
Hoffa, aware of Hoover’s hatred of the Kennedys, made sure this information reached his ears. If Hoover had been fired as planned, he would lose immunity from prosecution for his earlier dealings with the Mafia. At bottom, this must have been his root motive for betrayal.
The late Jim Garrison leaves us with an admonition we must never forget:
“The people of this country don’t have to be protected from the truth. This country was not built on the idea that a handful of nobles, whether located in our federal agencies…or in the news agencies in New York, should decide what is good for the people to know, and what they should not know. This is a totalitarian concept, which presumes that the leaders of our federal government, and the men who control the powerful press media, constitute a special elite, which, by virtue of their nobility and brilliance, empower them to think for the people.”
The Grand Lodge has to think for us, you see, since all the uninitiated are still considered “profane”. From captains of industry to elected officials, policemen to godless criminal. To raise the price of oil or monopolize the pharmaceutical industry.
At worst, in the continuation of the MK-ULTRA mind control program supposedly disbanded in 1973; Scottish Rite leaders such as Jim Jones have near perfected a form of voluntary genocide in the name of eugenics; the breeding of people like dogs. (The Heaven’s Gate mass suicides, incidentally, was a variation of the Jones experiment; hence the castration.)
Incidentally, in John 3:19-21, we find perhaps the best argument against the so-called “Christian” Freemason came from Jesus Christ Himself…
“This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”
Most of the suspects spotted and even photographed in Dallas on the day of Kennedy’s murder fled to California, where Gov. Ronald Reagan refused to extradite them for the Clay Shaw trial. This should put President Reagan’s controversial visit to Bitburg in perspective; back when he honored dead SS officers– Nazi war criminals– at the German cemetery and outraged the world.
Though there were six founding members, the actual creator of the KKK, Nathan Bedford Forrest, was a Grand Master Freemason; as well as a war criminal for the slaughter of more than 300 Union prisoners of war at Fort Pillow in the Civil War.
From the Masons, the KKK adopted the circle of the lodge in their formal meeting arrangements. The single All-Seeing Eye of Masonry, (Eye of Horus) which you can find on the back of a one dollar bill– that became the Grand Cyclops. There were hand signals, secret passwords, secret handgrips and recognition signals, and even a sacred oath all adopted from Masonic experience.
On November 9, 1918 Baron Rudolf von Sebottendorff, a Grand Master Freemason and founding leader of the Thule Gesellschaft; made an impassioned plea for armed resistence against the Communist threat in Germany. Within one year, a coalition of the Order of New Templars, the German School Bund and the List Society brought pitched battles to Munich streets against the Communists. The secretive Thule cultists had a symbol consisting of a dagger superimposed on a swastika. By November of 1923, the Thules will have evolved ino the NSDAP: the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. The Nazi Party. Under Adolf Hitler, they will borrow the swastika from the Thule cultists and place it on their flags and armbands. However, when Hitler became Fuhrer a division arose, and the Freemasons were outlawed and persecuted by the same monster they created. It would not be the first time, nor the last, that Hitler would kill those who helped bring him to power.
Before induction in a Lodge, the candidate agrees to risk death if he ever gives away the secrets of the Masons. Is this oath much different than the Mafia omerta, or code of silence?
When William Shakespeare said all the world’s a stage, and we the players in it; he spoke in a very literal sense. This is the way the Grand Masters and their “unknown superiors” in the spirit and material world have perceived the earth– as a global chessboard. That’s why chess wizards are traditionally called Grand Masters. If you’ve ever been in a masonic temple, you’ll also notice the floor is often laid out in a familiar chessboard pattern. Both the mason and the “profane” non-masons are pawns and unwittingly moved on this allegory chessboard by carefully staged political psychodramas. Thus, political assassinations, or “King-Killings”, e.g. those of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and John F.Kennedy, two “Catholic Kings”, have been carried out in covert efforts to drag the whole world into a calculated psychodrama whose outcome will always play into the hands of masonic instigators, in both cases each was an attempt to launch a world war. In the first attempt, they succeeded.
Those masonic instigators, in our case, is the same CIA JFK hoped to scatter to the “four winds of the earth”. Such psychodramas, in keeping with the outlines of Pike and Mazzini, have already provoked two world wars. (The second psychodrama, the Reichstag fire, brought Hitler to power.)
It should be noted that Hitler’s invasion of Poland in September of 1939 was justified by a staged act of Polish terrorism. The “attack” left several dead, and these were actually murdered German prisoners in Nazi uniforms. Hitler used the new medium of news reels and radio to mislead and inflame the Germans into a calculated outrage. The attack, of course, was orchestrated by SS men in Polish uniforms who attacked a German radio station a shortly before Hitler invaded. Unaware that the dead Nazi martyrs in that attack were actually German prisoners murdered by the SS itself, the nation was led to believe that Poland was the first to draw blood in World War II. The German print and broadcast media plastered images of these dead “Nazi martyrs who died in defending the station”; and cited this staged incident as proof that Poland was thirsty for German blood. It worked like a charm.
The Reichstag Fire, which we now know was actually orchestrated by the Nazis to bring a democratic Germany under martial law, was also such a psychodrama, a Helgelian Dialectic wherein Hitler secretly created the crisis– the Reichstag fire, and then offered the solution– martial law.
The thought of even a mock trial strikes fear into the hearts of broadcasters or your pals at CourtTV. But the objective is not punitive; but to wake the dead conscience our present government and the mass media it uses to defraud Americans of their birthrights, their Constitutional rights and freedoms.
Is that fear rooted in the thought we as a nation could entertain the possibility that officials appointed by Johnson have no legal right to maintain office as members of a secret society that demands covert obedience to tyranny of unknown superiors?
The presidency Kennedy administered was literally acquired through the blood of an earlier American president, President Lincoln; and that office was, through an impeached Scottish Rite mason implicated in Lincoln’s murder, was used not just to conceal the true scope of the conspiracy the Lincoln assassination, but to establish the present system. President Andrew Johnson, in fact, was masonically subservient to Confederate Gen. Albert Pike, who was sought by the military for complicity in the assassination plot. Andrew Johnson pardoned him, and promptly returned from exile in Canada to run KKK operations in the South.
Did George Washington Fight Against Himself?
Our first president, George Washington, is often cited as a freemason. This is not contested. He did, however, refrain from lodge meetings in the last 30 years of his life, and had converted to Christianity by a Baptist minister before his death. He did in fact warn Americans of their potential for evil. It was a philosophy perhaps most evident in his opposition to groups most likely to embrace the corruptive wealth and influence of the freemasons: political parties.
Even so, Washington was a renounced freemason from domestic fraternity, which though not freed from corruption, had at least avoided embracing outright treason by subjecting American masonic leaders to the will of British leaders who hoped to retain States as a colony. Crown sympathizers, the Tories who formed America’s Scottish Rite branch in 1801, were precisely the same people Washington fought against in the Revolutionary War.
In the War of 1812, the Scottish Rite’s political apparatus in the north, the Federalists, would make the first bid for the dissolution of the Union. Often called “the second battle of independence”, this time Britain actually burned the White House in a march on Washington. The Northern and Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite was Britain’s fifth column.
The War of 1812 grew from the practice of impressment, or the seizure of American seamen for service in the British navy. The British government claimed that it only seized subjects of the Crown who sailed under the American flag to avoid wartime service in their own navy. But in fact, the British seized not only their own deserters, but also impressed a sizeable number of United States citizens—estimates suggest 6000 or more.
In the Trent Affair, the British would disingenuously cite the practice of impressment against its own citizens andlikewise threaten war over the capture of two Scottish Rite ambassadors, John Slidell and James Murry Mason, who hoped to enlist European aid for the Confederacy. These two prisoners, however, were not British citizens. They were Southerners. The Union captain who boarded the Trent did not subject any British citizen to impressment, let alone naval service for the Union. Yet it was acted upon as such.
When President James Madison declared war on Britain, it was vehemently opposed by the Scottish Rite’s political apparatus in the North, the Federalists. The reason cited was a fear that such a war would severely harm American trade. The Federalists, who were pro-British, actually led an opposition to the war that was so strong in New England that the governors of Massachusetts and Connecticut refused to call up their militia in response to President Madison’s request for troops.
By late 1814, delegates from the New England states, dissatisfied with the handling of the war, had met at the Hartford Convention in Connecticut (December 14, 1814-January 5, 1815). This group, which was dominated by disgruntled members of the Federalist political party, was reported to have formulated demands that amounted to a dissolution of the Union. Ironically, this was decided upon after the War of 1812 ended with a peace treaty negotiated in Ghent, Belgium, and signed on December 24, 1814.
Unaware that a treaty has already ended the war, and just three days after the Hartford Convention adjourned, an outnumbered Andrew Jackson dealt a crushing blow to British forces in New Orleans on January 8, 1814.
Because the meetings of the convention took place behind closed doors, and because the members were pledged to absolute secrecy that is the hallmark of freemasonry, word spread to the effect that the New England states were contemplating secession from the Union. This irreparably damaged the reputation of the Federalist Party, already in disfavor because of its pro-British, aristocratic tendencies. The party did not survive the presidential election of 1816.
By its history, we know the Scottish Rite is prone to outright treason, and it’s sympathies and conduct so manifest their very secrecy can only serve to confirm our worst suspicions. But the issue now is, since they used force to attain power (i.e., a paramilitary coup in 1865), will military force be needed to return it to the people?
Call no man Master
If history serves to teach us anything, freemasonry, in preserving the eternal night of secrecy; preserves only blindness to tyranny. And devoid the light of truth, the tree of liberty can only perish. Tyranny fears nothing more than an educated nation, and inasmuch as a nation neglects the education of its people, tyranny flourishes proportionately.
Martin Luther King, Jr. often said that “truth pressed to the earth will only rise up again someday…”
That someday, now more than ever, is today…
