Myth of the "Liberal Left"    6 1/2 pp.

          The left, known for its self-righteous condescension and hypocrisy,  has built  a false image and positive stereotype of itself and a false image and negative stereotype of the right through media propaganda and social inculcation, and the right goes along with it by insisting on calling the left "liberal" and the right "conservative." "Liberal left" and "conservative right" are Confusionese terms because "liberal" and "progressive" define notions and beliefs on both the right and left and in more or less equal distribution. The left is no more liberal nor progressive nor enlightened than the right. The synonyms, which lead to gross and bizarre oxymorons like "liberal authoritarianism" and "conservative changes," are not only false and artificial but gratuitous, as well, since many other terms can easily be used instead: rightist-leftist, right-wing-left-wing, right of center-left of center, tory-whig, and blue-red. And a rightist can support liberal democracy and liberal economics, and usually does, can have a liberal education, as in being in a liberal arts college, and can be a member of the Liberal Party. A leftist can be a museum conservator, be in a music conservatory, support conservation, and usually does, and be a member of the Conservative Party.
         The analysis below clearly demonstrates that the concept of liberalism and progress being co-extensive with, and the exclusive domain of, the left, or are a majority in it, is totally false. The same goes for the idea that illiberalism and conservatism are co-extensive with and the exclusive domain of the right or are a majority in it.  There is no particular tendency to liberalism nor progress on the left nor is there any particular tendency towards illiberalism nor conservatism on the right. Political "correctness", for instance, is a very repressive, intolerant,  and puritanical movement and it is also  very fundamentally and profoundly left-wing and is very popular on the left. The same goes for feminism and nutritionism. And no one could say communism is liberal but it is as  left-wing as you can get and is popular with many leftists. Luddism and conservation are conservative and are left-wing, also.

        Each issue is scored from 0-2. This is not an analysis based on opinion surveys as I do not have all this information which is very limited, in any case (all I could find was a sexuality survey correlating to party affiliations in the States and views on occult matters relating to ideological affiliations) but is based on very good estimates and such an analysis would probably render much the same score, more or less equal.    I base the scoring on general patterns for each issue. There might be a few issues the scoring for which some, both on the right and left,  might take issue with, and a few other issues some would include, but overall the final score would be still be about equal.
        The progressives on the right especially support science and technology, space exploration, urban renewal, industrialization, modernization, colourization, bioengineering, shopping malls, and judicial and political reform--this is blue progress. Conservatives on the left especially support conservation and Luddism and are especially opposed to space exploration, urban renewal, industrialization, modernization, science and technology, shopping malls, and judicial and political reform.
        Liberals on the right especially support economic liberalism (free enterprise), libertarianism, liberal gun laws, sexuality, fast foods, rights of legitimate gun-owners and the right of self-defense, language rights, fathers' rights, victims' rights, and the right of women to be women and the right of men to be men, while illiberals on the left are opposed to all these things. The left makes nutrition into a religion or cult and neurosis, orthorexia, and cares little about mental health.
        Political "correctness," formalized ultraleft-wing orthodoxy, not surprisingly, originated in a totalitarian state, namely Red China, the term being coined in Mao's Little Red Book (political "correctness" -Wikipedia), and was imported by red reactionaries in the West in the  '60s but came to the fore only in the '80s so the book "1984" was prophetic. Like pc it included the AntiSex League ("women' lib") and Newspeak (pc double talk). It lives in a fantasy world where hair colour determines intelligence; where guns cause crime, are the only or most dangerous weapons, and can only be used by criminals; where sex, nature, race, and UFOs don't exist; and where practically everything is racism, sexism, sexual harassment, or homophobia. And it is very hypocritical as it is itself racist and sexist and anti-liberal.  Not only is it  bigoted against Anglophones, Americans, Israelis, and men, but also against blondes, gun-owners, cheerleaders, introverts, intellectuals,  the middle class, and suburbia.
        Some will say we shouldn't condemn the dark side of "feminism" as it is only a lunatic fringe but it is  a lunatic majority within feminism as radicalism is mainstream in the movement and is recognized as such by many. The central and general characteristcs  of feminism are, indeed and in fact, hatred and bigotry towards men, which is sexism, including negative male stereotypes; chauvinism;  puritanism; the goal of superiority; the denial of gender or the goal of its elimination; shouldn't be helped, and wanting themto be men or to be like men. The hypocrisy, of course, is in pretending to be against sexism, chauvinism, and misogyny, and in favour of egalitarianism. In it most of the men want to be women and most of the women want to be men, not realizing this is neurotic behaviour. And most men are too pusillanimous and unprincipled to oppose it.
        American journalist Carey Roberts asks "Is Feminism a Mental Disorder?" ( I-Feminist website). The answer is, for the most part, obviously yes, but we must qualify by saying it is  a complex of mental disorders, namely: manic disorder (fanaticism), rage disorder, gender identity disorder,  sexophobia, sociopathy and subsociopathy, hysteria, and paranoia and other delusions. See also "Women Are Fleeing the Feminist Fold" by the same author and in the same website.
        Where it concerns generosity, a study by Arthur Brooks published in 2006 "Who Really Cares" and which was featured on 20/20 and called "Cheap in America", found that tories were more generous than whigs, by 27-30% and 18% more likely to give blood,  religious people 4 times as much as secular people, the working poor were the most charitable, Americans were per capita 3 1/2 times more generous than the French, 7 times more than Germans, and 14 times more than Italians. These results are consistent with  research done in the '90s, the reference for which I could not find, however, which found religious people were more generous than secular people, Americans more generous than Canadians, and among Canadians, Quebecers were the least generous, and Quebecers are also the most left-wing among Canadians.
         That the extreme left was against the Viet Nam War is a myth as it  supported  it because it was a war to unite VN under communism and what it opposed was the American intervention because it didn’t want anything to jeopardize the North’s goal. And the atrocities committed by American troops were few and far between and never supported while the ones committed by the NV Army and the VC were extremely numerous and especially hideous and were official policy. It was the VC and the NVA who were the baby-killers. Also, it wasn’t the US who started the war, it was North VN in the '40s. The so-called peace movement is comparable to the "peace" movement in the US during WW2 which was composed mostly of Germans sympathetic to Hitler. There were, in fact, many demonstrators who openly supported the VC as was very evident from their placards.
        The hypocrisy, illiberalism, and pro-war position of the left is seen in its support for the Palestinians while at the same time pretending to be in favour of peace and against racism, and the right's liberalism and support for peace is seen also in its support for Israel, which is ironic since most Judaics are left-wing.
        Saying that the US was the last to eliminate slavery is just as much  propaganda against Americans as that concerning the war since it was Brazil who was the last in the Americas to do so (in 1888) and Arabs in the Sudan still practice it.
        As well, the totalitarianism of the left,  communism, has committed exterminations at a higher rate than the totalitarianism of the right, fascism, 1.4-1, as well as in number murdered, by a ratio of 4-1, as we can see in the following table. And all-time totals for democide are at the same rate for both right and left with the left exceeding the right by 30 mln. unless we exclude some 35 mln. from the Red China count if we consider  the famine tragedy as not purposeful, but it probably was, and most estimates include it.

         This does not include the democide caused by criminal negligence by democratically-elected regimes. Most politicians, judges, lawyers, parole board members, and parole officers are anti-social, anti-justice, anti-security, and pro-crime so they support violent crime and violent criminals and this is more than evident in the laws made and decisions taken, deliberately and purposely to cause the murder of innocent people, by extreme left-wing groups like the Whigs and Democrats, and their relentless, outright, and complete refusal to do anything of substance against violent crime, which they even believe is less  serious than crimes against property, and that crime is justified because of the inequities of society. In other words, they believe money is more important than people. This is consistent and congruent with their policy of saving money at the expense of innocent citizens in refusing to implement rehab and build new prisons. I wouldn't be so naive as to believe most rightist parties are not the same, a notable exception being the Tories under Stephen Harper who are unfortunately handicapped by having a minority government.  
        Many leftists have brought inanity and incoherence to new extremes by claiming communism is right-wing when it is anti-rightist and the right is anti-communist. Using the same "logic," and since Naziism had many socialist features, had "Socialist" in its name,  considered itself socialist, and was anti-American, we must consider fascism to be left-wing. 1st leftists support communism and then consider it right-wing--how convenient--the left supposedly morphs back and forth from left to right according to the whims of the self-righteous  who believe the left can do no wrong when it is severely flawed at best.
        Another reminder of the tyranny of the extreme left is the decidedly left-wing French Revolutionary government which exterminated over a quarter million people from 1793-94 and started the French Revolutionary Wars. Also, according to % of population the highest figure is 40%, which was the communist Cambodian democide, sometimes considered genocide.  Genocides were not committed only by right-wing regimes but by left-wing ones as well, e.g., the Ukrainian holocaust under Stalin which exterminated 5-13 mln.
        Other figures that might make a difference are the 2 Khan democides of the 1200s in China adding up to 24 mln., the Mongol democides of the 13-1400s in China adding up to 30 mln., and democides in China from 221BC to the 1800s  at 33.5 mln. The ideological affiliations of the perpetrators is undetermined. If we included them all under right-wing then we would have a total of 210 mln. but a lower rate of .37.
         Contrary to  most of the right, which is opposed to the right to die, I am strongly in favour. There are libertarians on the right who oppose censorship but I am strongly in favour of this, also, as it is essential and necessary to protect the minority or majority, as the case may be, who do not want to be subjected to the many and serious abuses and excesses of the media complex, which is very anti-esthetic, perverse, sordid, and morbid. The problem isn't mostly sexuality, which there isn't much of to begin with, but grossness. The left's hypocrisy is seen also in opposing censoship but practicing it itself based on its pc.
         There is unfortunately general hysteria over human cloning and bioengineering which I support, so the oppostion to it is bipartisan whereas, except for stem cell research, which I support also, which has largely been opposed by the right because of religious factors and supported  largely by the left.
         In the area of justice and security (law and order), leftists care more about saving money than saving lives. Keeping dangerous offenders in jail, rehabilitation, and building new prisons costs money. They oppose judicial reform and support the status quo because it favours criminals. They use all kinds of sophistic arguments, half-truths, detached facts, and outright lies to excuse and justify their anti-social attitudes and policies. They even say crime isn't a problem; this shows incredible insensitivity. They support repressive gun laws that favour criminals and oppose the rights of law-abiding citizens especially victims. And they oppose all serious measures against crime including capital punishment or support only pre-facto measures. So much for the left having a social conscience.
        An example of « tough on crime doesn"t work" as a half-truth or detached fact is MMS (minimum mandatory sentences). They don't work for drug offences and these are most felonies and in fact there shouldn't be incarceration for simple possession. And there shouldn't be either for misdemeanors which are 98 % of all cases. Early release is another factor; the dangerous offender should not be released unless he is rehabilitated. And MMS is not just for deterrence as it is also a preventative measure. Some 200 Canadians have been murdered by parolees in the past 30 or so years. And there is also the principle of fairness instead of the caprices of irresponsible and insensitive judges. If one is in favour of crime prevention then one is in favour of all such measures including appropriate MMS and maintaining dangerous offenders in jail, not just social programs. And the libertarian idea of  drug legalization isn't even supported in jurisdictions where simple possession does not carry a jail term where trafficking of narcotics, referred to as recreational drugs by the left to minimize their dangers, carry serious penalties. As well, the judicial system is based on a false and anti-social premise, that it is better that a guilty person goes free than an innocent person is convicted, as both are equally bad.
        Where it concerns privacy rights, the 2 sides have a very poor record, as they both support same sex nudity in the dressing room and partitionless shower stall rows which are gratuitous and serious violations of privacy. And there is little else in this area we can point to in any policies that favour these rights.
        The left has promoted the  idea that hair colour determines intelligence, but obviously this is ludicrous and, indeed, differences in IQ between blondes and other people are negligible as seen in the IQ Test Labs  website, being only 2 points,   and the differences that do exist favour blondes, brunettes,  and redheads among women. Redheads are at 100, blondes and brunettes at 100.5, and black-haireds at 99. Among men the differences are neglible also, being a point spread of 3 1/2 points, with brown-haireds at 101, blonds at 100.5, redheads at 100, and black-haireds at 97.5. In intelligence the 2 sides are also about even with differences being negligible with a 3 1/2 point margin. Centrists and environmentalists are at just over 102,   rightists at just under 101, socialists at 100, communists at 99, and others at 98.5. The average for leftists is just under 100.
        There might be a difference in that the right, seemingly at least, tends to be more moderate, and therefore more rational, and the left tends to be more radical, therefore more irrational. This may be true since there seems, at least, to be more intraversion on the right and more extraversion on the left. There are apparently 3 times more radical movements on the left than on the right.

School Shootings-(Les Fusillades dans les écoles )   10 pp.

Summary-The phenomenon of school shootings is the amok syndrome, a psychiatric condition known for some 200 years. But the recent exponential increase in such incidents might be better explained as caused or aggravated by the widespread use of SSRIs, a type of anti-depressant, which have been involved in the vast majority of cases. Another possible factor is psychotronics, a mind control capability which has  been  available since the '70s, and which could fall in the hands of criminal groups. In several cases  there is evidence of  black ops.  The goal would be the prohibition of  firearms.

Sommaire-Le phenomène des fusillades dans les écoles est le syndrome amok, condition psychiatrique connue depuis quelque 200 ans. Mais l'augmentation exponentielle récente de ces incidents pourrait  mieux s'expliqué par l'utilisation répandue des SSRI, sorte d'anti-dépresseurs, qui sont impliqués dans la grande majorité des cas. Un autre facteur possible serait la psychotronique, technologie de controle de l'esprit disponible depuis les années '70,  et qui  pourrait tombée entre les mains de  groupes criminels. Dans plusieurs cas il y a des preuves d'opérations clandestines.  Le but serait de faire abolir les armes à feu.

         I had thought that the exponential increase in school shootings was part of the degeneration of society but I came to realize  that this is  a rather imprecise and vague explanation and that the phenomenon was very suspect. Having recently discovered that there are criminal groups operating  secretly and having heard already of certain electronic wave technology that can affect the brain I came to have the suspicion that such a group was behind most of this  terrible phenomenon and that it was in the aim of abolishing guns and I had always recognized that it looked very much like it was done for that purpose, but figured it was just appearance. I then did research and found much evidence for the possibility.
         The Russian magazine International Life, in '75, reported that it was discovered that electronic mind control developments could create feelings of depression and anger among other things. The DIA (US Defense Intel Agency) in a '77 report said the same. 
        In his article, « Experiments in Distant Influence, » Prof. Leonid Vasiliev of St. Petersburg University's Physiology Dept., reported that he and his colleagues found that even very low level radiation can cause emotional instability.
        The Jan. 11-17, 1993 issue of Defense News reported that U.S. political and military officials are obtaining Russian mind control technology. "Pioneered by the government-funded Department of Psycho-Correction at the Moscow Medical Academy, acoustic psycho-correction involves the transmission of specific commands via static or white noise bands into the human subconscious without upsetting other intellectual functions. Experts said laboratory demonstrations have shown encouraging results after exposure of less than one minute. Moreover, decades of KGB research and investment of untold millions of rubles in the process has produced the ability to alter behaviour on willing and unwilling subjects, the experts add."
     One of the KGB's psychotronic systems was being sold for as little as $80,000. A scientific analysis published by an affiliate of  Psycho-Correction Department at Moscow Medical Academy stated: "...It has become possible to probe and correct psychic contents of human beings despite their will and consciousness, by instrumental means...Results having been achieved...can be used with inhumane purposes of manipulating psyche."
     The Warrior's Edge (1990, Wm. Morrow) by Col. John Alexander,  Major Richard Groller, and  Janet Morris,  discusses such psychotronic technology, as it is often called,  describing  mind control effects, inside the United States, that have been created by the Russian Tesla Magnifying ELF Woodpecker transmitters.
     Alexander is  a leading American expert on psychotronics, and Nexus magazine, in its Oct.-Nov. '93 article « Psychic Warfare and Non-Lethal Weapons », reports Alexander worked closely with C.B. Scott Jones, head of the Rockefeller Foundation, was then involved in over 20 separate projects at Los Alamos Labs,  his associate Janet Morris « confirmed John Alexander's involvement in mind control and psychotronic projects » at the facility, and he had close personal ties to the White House having a long association with Al Gore, Jr., former US  Vice President, who is a Freemason.
  It has already been established that Russia was bombarding the NW US with low frequency radio beams set at bio-electronic frequencies which affect neurological and bio functioning, reducing mental ability making people more suggestive (Gods of Eden, 1990, p. 419-20; NBC Magazine with David Brinkley, 1981).  
     An AP newspaper article from May 20, 1983, reported that a machine known as Lida has been used by Russia since at least 1960 to influence human behaviour with a 40 Mhz radio wave. The device is used as a tranquilizer to produce a trance-like state, is called a "distant pulse treatment apparatus,"  has been offered as a substitute for psychotropic drugs, and is apparently a small-scale version of the very device described in the Brinkley show. And Bramley states, "in actual fact, electronic tranquilizers appear to be deep irritants which will ultimately contribute to heightened aggression." Even if they aren't they can be used to zombify the public and make them more susceptible to brainwashing, which seems to be what's happening.

     Regarding  school shootings themselves  the US Secret Service, in 2000, took the extraordinary step of using its threat assessment model to look at the thinking and behaviour of 41 school attackers (virtually all of them shooters) involved with 37 fatal school attacks over the previous 26 years (Safe School Initiative, 2002).
     They excluded gang-related shootings and, in the end, found that there was no good profile of the type of person who becomes a school shooter. Many school shooters were bullied or threatened beforehand and more than half had revenge as their motive. Several had suffered this kind of abuse that was longstanding and severe. More than three-fourths held some kind of grievance and in most cases they told others about their complaints beforehand.
         Attackers ranged in age from 11 to 21, and were as likely to be rich as poor; they were from all ethnic and racial backgrounds though about 75% were white. They had intact and broken families, good and bad report cards. A few felt isolated, but just as many had a lot of friends.
         Most were suicidal, but only a few had actually been diagnosed with mental disorders. In more than three-fourths of the attacks, the perpetrator "had difficulty coping with a major change to a significant relationship or  loss of status" — a breakup with a girlfriend, a public humiliation, a personal failure.
           There were similar findings by researchers at the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence at the University of Colorado at Boulder, part of a 2001 report to the U.S. Surgeon General, which   found that a few factors that might seem significant — poor attitudes toward school, poor grades, bad parent-child relationships, a tendency toward being a loner, and even watching a lot of violent TV — had almost no effect. Others  were  inconclusive: poverty, physical aggression, and having anti-social parents.
         Important points to emphasize are the following:
 
             There is no profile for the school shooter that is useful
             Most have no history of violent behaviour
             In most cases where there was a  history of depression and/or suicidal tendencies it is relatively recent and in many

        All these facts are signs that the phenomenon is induced artificially.
        However,  the profile fits very well amok syndrome which is a world-wide phenomenon going back some 200 years when it was discovered among the Malay and  termed amok, running amok, or amok syndrome, from the Malay mengamok meaning to make a furious charge, or furious attack.
 Captain Cook is credited with making the first outside observations and recordings of amok in the Malay tribesmen in 1770 during his around-the-world voyage. The attacks involved an average of 10 victims, and ended when the individual was subdued or “put down” by his fellow tribesmen, and frequently killed in the process. According to Malay mythology, the disorder was an involuntary behavior caused by the “hantu belian” ( evil tiger spirit) entering the body and compelling the person to behave violently without conscious awareness. Inexplicably, while the frequency of amok among primitive tribes was decreasing, similar occurrences of violence in industrial societies were increasing. In modern times the syndrome is unheard of in primitive societies.
        The reason they are one and the same is that they both are mass murder-suicides typically by a one person, there is a major change to a significant relationship or loss of status, and usually a grievance, there is a prodromal depression, and the attack is planned. It is considered to be closely related to male honour and for the perpetrator it is both a way of escaping the world and restoring his self-respect (Amok Syndrome-Wikipedia). One might think because of this that the spate is due to the feminist movement but, although feminism is largely a psychiatric problem in itself, the loss of status, humiliation, etc., is personal, not social, and only 1 had singled out feminists as the problem, being in the U of M Polytech case. Curiously, the connection between amok syndrome and school and postal shootings has rarely been made in the mass media.
        It was first classified as a psychiatric condition around 1850 on the basis of anecdotal reports and case studies revealing that people who ran amok were mentally ill. No kidding! Prior to that time, it was studied and reported as an anthropological curiosity. Historically, observers described 2 forms, but DSM-IV does not differentiate between them nor should it, at least not nomenclaturally as, if there are really 2  forms, they are subtypes of the same disorder.  The more common form, beramok, was associated with a personal loss and preceded by a period of depressed mood and brooding; while the infrequent form, amok, was associated with rage, a perceived insult, or vendetta preceding the attack.
        St. Martin (Manuel L. St. Martin, MD, JD, in "Running Amok: a Modern Perspective", 1999, J. Clin. Psych.  1: 66–70) states that contemporary descriptions of multiple homicides by individuals are comparable to the case reports of amok syndrome. But what is significant regarding gun control in what he says  is: "the number of victims in modern episodes is similar to the number in amok despite the fact that handguns and rifles are used in contrast to the Malay swords of 2 centuries ago." Others have also considered the syndrome as cross-cultural, e.g., P. M. Yap  (Mental diseases peculiar to certain cultures: a survey of comparative psychiatry. 1951. J Ment Sci. 97: 313–327) and J-I Teoh ( The changing psychopathology of amok. 1972.  Psychiatry.  35:345–351).
        I agree with his evaluation that running amok should no longer be considered an archaic, culture-bound syndrome (in this case, occurs only in primitive tribes); a more useful and modern approach is that it represents an extreme form of violent behaviour occurring as a result of a mental disorder, personality pathology, and psychosocial stressors; early recognition of the risk factors and prompt treatment of the underlying psychiatric condition offer the best chance of preventing it; and seeing the mass violence of amok as the manifestation of another mental disorder provides a framework in which future such occurrences can be analyzed.
        It is essentially similar to postal  and family shootings, as well,  the former having occurred since '83 in the US and most incidents being in that country and giving the term "going postal".  Postal shootings, have occured since '83 in the US and most incidents being in that country (some 20 incidents and about 40 victims). However, several other occupations have a higher homicide rate. Another version is when the person kills his family and then commits suicide. Sometimes it can be a combination of family and workplace shootings as seen in the '34 case in Quebec.
        There are 3 misconceptions in psychiatry about amok: that it is a sudden onset (with a prodromal stage), that it is rational, and that it is culture-bound, but any profiler will tell you that there is necessarily a cause and a process to sociopathy; it just doesn't happen all of a sudden for no reason. And simply because a person is able to plan does not mean he/she is rational. And it cannot be rational since it is a mental disorder, and madness has no rationality.
          There has never been such a proliferation of school shootings with most of them defying explanation (unless one factors in SSRIs, psychotronics, and false flags) as most do not include any long standing history of mental illness involving violent episodes and the proliferation itself defying explanation (again unless we factor in SSRIs, psychotronics, and false flags). Also, all or most of the cases  before the '70s have conventional explanations—amok syndrome yes, but with the cause and history identified. 
         In Bath Township, Mich., in 1927 their were 3 bombings in 1 day which made 103 victims, mostly children, 45 dead and 58 injured. It was the worst  school massacre in US history. The perpetrator had a long history of psycopathy. At 14 (he was 55 when he committed the atrocity) he allowed his stepmother, with whom he often argued, to burn from a stove explosion for a few minutes and it was enough time that she later died of her injuries. He was never charged and the cause of the stove problem was never identified. Also, he was cruel to his animals. He had an obsessive-compulsive disorder, which means co-morbidity, which is usually the case.
         In South Pasadena, Cal., '40 case, the principal had been ousted and had many altercations with school authorities after a nervous breakdown a year earlier (Oswego Palladium-Times).
         The '49 Columbus, Ohio incident was not  a mass murder and there was only 1 victim (List of school-related attacks-Wikipedia).
        The '54 Chapel Hill, N.C., case was a frat shooting after an all-night beer party (List of school-related attacks-Wikipedia).
         In the '59 incident the perpetrator was a 3-time convict who was physically abusive to his wife. Here there is clearly a long history of serious problems readily identified—no sudden turn to psychopathy (and by this I do not refer to the rampage itself as it is planned but instead to the intent).
         In the '64 incident near Koln,  Germany,  the perpetrator was schizophrenic and was traumatized by his wife's decease in childbirth 3 years earlier.
          In the '66 UTex-Austin incident the perpetrator had a history of child abuse, the father being physically abusive. Again the cause here, too,  is clearly identified.
         There is insufficient information for the others in the pre-'70s era.
         The '89 incident at the U of M's Polytech also had a cause identified as the perpetrator had a history of child abuse, also from the father, although the event could have been also brought on by mind control.  But there will necessarily be some incidents not caused by psychotronics and probably also a small increase in these.
        The following table  shows the number of incidents by decade (excluded are political and war incidents and those involving only 1 victim).

             But the almost universal occurence of Prozac or other SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor) anti-depressants in these incidents, purposely used by psychiatrists to aggravate the problem, is an important factor.  The following corroborate and confirm this.

        The perpetrator at Dawson was taking anti-depressants but I do not know if they were SSRIs (Ban Beretta semi-auto rifle, says coroner in Dawson College shooting, by Martin Barry, Laval News On-Line, Sept 11, 2008).
        The 1st blockbuster SSRI, Prozac, arrived on the scene in '88 (The Marketization of Depression: The Prescribing of SSRI-Antidepressants to Women, Janet Currie, Women and Health Protection web site, May 2005).  There were 7 school shootings from '80- '88 and 9 in the '70s so this was before the introduction of SSRIs or at least any important ones. These drugs were obviously added to increase the incidents of school shootings.      
         And I quote from School Shootings (whale web site): "Certain brain activities trigger people on Prozac to become homicidal or suicidal. Thanks to research by "Illuminati" controlled companies, the Network knows exactly how to use ELF waves vectored on a particular person by 3 separate towers to stimulate the Prozac controlled brain to murder. This is being used to increase acts of anarchy and violence in order to help insure anti-gun legislation." No sources are given for the vectors nor the 3 towers  and it is debatable that the 2 methods are used simultaneously but they are probably used separately, 1st the psychotronics to cause the clinical depression so the person seeks treatment and then the prescribing of SSRIs which cause homicidal behaviour. And certainly the research companies are controlled by the Obscuranti. The article by Byron Weeks, M.D., (Tavistock-bibliotecapleyades) states, "A single common denominator identifies the  Tavistock strategy---the use of drugs." See also Secret Societies below.  Note that the drug companies and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are controlled by the Obscuranti (Corporatism: the Secret Government of the NWO,  Jeffrey Grupp,   Progressive Press,  2007, 236 pp.).
        Even if there is no psychotronics being used there is still mind control using SSRI drugs to cause gun violence with the goal being confiscation and abolition. If the means are evil so are the goals. The goal is gun abolition as a prelude to tyranny.
        There is no explanation or cause identified for the phenomenon (exponential increase) unless we invoke the artificially- induced (mind control and prescription drug) scenario. The hypothesis is testable as the pre-'70s incidents can be compared to the post-'60s incidents. In the former group the incidents are rare, the causes are identified conventionally, and there was no mind control technology. In the latter it is all the opposite. And there is even more evidence than that.
        Dunblane
         documents were kept confidential and a 100-year seal of secrecy was placed on them; the cover story is that the names of the
         children are not being divulged to protect them as they may have been victims of abuse at the hands of the perpetrator,
         however, other documents kept secret have nothing to do with the children (The Guardian -Call to lift secrecy over
             Dunblane);
         there are allegations that the perpetrator had ties to high-level Scottish officials (The Guardian -Call to lift secrecy over
             Dunblane);
        the perpetrator had ties to Freemasonry (Sunday Herald- »Dunblane secret documents contain letters by Tory
             and Labour ministers »)
    The following do not necessarily indicate mind control or the aim of gun prohibition but they do raise disturbing questions and arouse serious suspicions.
        U of M Polytech (from André Arthur, broadcaster and independent parliamentarian, Le Midi TV show)
            the police are ordered to stand down and wait for the SWAT team by Roland Bourget which allowed for an additional 7
                 shooting deaths; several of the officers given the order have developed psychiatric problems because of this
            13 of the 14 victim's families demanded a public inquiry but the inquiry is refused by the minister responsible
            the only family who did not demand the inquiry is that  of a Leclair, a Montreal police officer; Roland Bourget then becomes
                 chief of the Ste. Foie police and Leclair succeeds him
        Columbine (from various websites)
              the Denver SWAT team took an inordinate amount of time to enter the building, over 1 hr., and took another 2 hrs. before
                 they came upon the area where the shooting occurred, which contributed to more people dying.
              lawsuits by several families have been launched agaisnt the authorities
              certain videos in the Basement Tapes are being kept confidential
              the Jefferson County Police showed, before and after, suspicious  inaction on a number of occasions concerning the 2
                perpetrators and a subsequent potential threat to an area school.
              there are claims of an extra gunman
       Virginia  Tech  (from various websites)
             the university officials did not advise the students of the incident in the dorm until 2 1/2 hors later
             the police did not set up road blocks nor do a lock down
             only weeks prior, in a concealed carry state, the university adopted a policy prohibiting guns on campus
 
 The general thinking relating to the actions of the police concerning the Dawson incident of 2006  is that they did a great job which is puzzling  in view of the obvious facts which I summarize here (from Maclean's Magazine and newspaper accounts):
             the cell phone video shows 2 officers staying behind a wall and not intervening while the perpetrator was shooting on the other side
             the 2 policemen (1 male, 1 female) who were already there by coincidence in relation to another matter followed incorrect procedure as both ran back to their cruiser to call for back up when it should have been only 1--this is apparently by the book but the book is obviously wrong--the other should have ran after the perpetrator ordering him to put down his weapons and shooting him if necessary; also, they thought they were being shot at when they weren't
             one of the 2 who were already there, a rookie only 3 months into his service, encountered the shooter in a corridor and the latter pointed a gun at him; normally, in such a situation,  the policeman would have his gun drawn and pointed and would have fired at the shooter--if he did have his gun drawn why didn't he fire?
             a number of policemen arrived after 1 or 2 minutes so there were several police officers there in the 1st few minutes yet the outcome was much the same as if they had all arrived about 20 minutes later-- 70 shots fired, 20 victims, 4 or 5 grievously wounded and 1 fatally, with only 6 fired by the police
             according to the coroner's report, at 1 point,  the perpetrator was cornered but the order was given to retreat
             recently a  detective lieutenant who was on the scene admitted to have frozen
             the family of Anastasia DeSousa was advised of her decease  about 10 hours later--an inordinate delay
        It is a moot point if Miss DeSousa would have been saved as the intervening policeman might have missed or if he had hit the perpetrator, even with  a severe wound, he might still have been able to continue with his rampage. There are several incidents where this has occurred and deer have been shot in a mortal area but were still able to run 100 yards. In any case,  an opportunity was missed.
        In an especially horrific incident, at the Tasmanian resort in 1996, the perpetrator had a long history of serious mental illness including violent and disruptive behaviour, probably had already murdered 1 or 2 people, was mentally retarded and had a low IQ (Martin Bryant-Wikipedia),  however, it may still be a case of government machinations as we see from the following sources:
        web articles
        The Port Arthur Massacre-Was Martin Bryant Framed? by Carl Wernerhoff
        Mass Murder in Australia: Tavistock's Martin Bryant by Allen Douglas and Michael  Sharp
        The Port Arthur Massacre Conspiracy by Joe Vialls
        Ned Wood, "The Port Arthur Massacre 10 Years On: The Secrecy Continues."
        A Presentation of the Port Arthur Incident by Mr Noel McDonald
        book
        Deadly Deception at Port Arthur-Scientific Evidence Questions Australia's Port Arthur Massacre by Joe Vialls
        And there's this quote from School Shootings (whale):
        "Roland Browne, then co-chairman of the National     Coalition for Gun Control (NCGC), who, with astonishing accuracy, predicted the Port Arthur Massacre when he stated, 'We are going to see a mass shooting in Tasmania...unless we get national gun control laws.'- (ACA ,with Ray Martin, March 1996)
        The Sun Herald reported May 5 1996 that ex-Premier of NSW, Barry Unsworth made this prediction in 1987 - 'Before Uniform Gun Laws become possible in all States there will have to be a massacre in Tasmania.' Can politicians and people for gun control really see into the future?"
 Also, there is strong evidence the horrible events of 2011 in Oslo involved a conspiracy but the media complex has painted it as the work of a lone perpetrator and has misrepresented him (Oslo Attacks-More False Flag Evidence-indybay.org; Oslo Atacks-You Tube). There were witnesses who claim there was another gunman, the police took an inordinate amount of time to get to the scene ( c. 90 minutes), the perpetrator's manifesto was fabricated, his website was doctored,  people who knew him say that the way he was portrayed was not at all the way he was, and such a complex operation is almost certainly the work of a group. And American expert Stephen Lendman maintains that in such incidents the people convicted are not the actual guilty parties.

And American expert Stephen Lendman maintains that in such incidents the people convicted are not the actual guilty parties.
        There is evidence that the alleged perpetrator in the Aurora, Col. movey house shooting, James Holmes, was drugged and mind controlled and used as a patsy (The James Holmes Conspiracy by Mark Howitt on You Tube; lawyerherald.com), which is as follows:
               
                James Holmes, the alleged perpetrator, promising graduate student, bright, humourous, and not a loner, suddenly and inexplicably changes 4 months before the incident
                he does not remember the events at the Century 16 moveyhouse (This was the same with Sirhan)
                he rigged his apartment with explosives yet tells the police about it
                he waited  for the police to arrest him
                a simulated exercise of the incident is done at Parker Medical School on the same day, which indicates advance knowledge
                witnesses say there were tear gas canisters thrown from 2 different directions and that there was another shooter
                police audio suggests there was another shooter
                he received a phone call in the moveyhouse, and there would be a record of it, but no such record was ever mentioned by the authorities
              the question of security cameras was never addressed by the authorities; probably they existed and the tapes would shed light on the matter
              a notebook supposedly written by the accused describing the attack may have been planted by the authorities post facto
              the sophisticated, complex, elaborate, and expensive equipment he rigged his apartment with, and the bullet proof vest, hard to get for a civilian,  indicate provision by specialists
            Arlene Holmes, mother of the accused, did not say "you have the right person" in refering to her son when she was questioned by the police, contrary to what was reported
            a long-time friend and neighbour, Anthony Mai, believes Holmes was set up
 
        Also, victims are launching a class action suit against Century 16 for providing lax security. There is also the rumour that both Robert Holmes, father of the accused, was set to testify in the Libor scandal, involving  financial criminality, and Peter Lanza, father of the alleged perpetrator at Sandy Hook in Newtown, was also, but this might be only a rumour. The trial of James Holmes is on-going.
       The especially heinous atrocity at Sandy Hook in Newtown, Ct. also smacks of conspiracy for the following reasons:
               
               the alleged perpetrator, Adam Lanza, was suffering from Asperger's, an autistic disorder, may have been a Goth, and may have watched violent video games, but none of these things explain such violence especially not Asperger's
               his school's security director, Richard Novia,  affirmed that he was not dangerous, and the concern was that he might be a victim instead
              the police found no evidence he was taking any medication (Police find no evidence Connecticut gunman was on medication-Fox News (foxnews.com); Search yields gaming, electronic evidence but no meds-Connecticut Post (ctpost.com))
              his  computers were smashed, which is destruction of evidence by someone who supposedly intended to commit suicide, which makes little sense
             no one who is alive could identify him as the shooter
             2 witnesses say there were other shooters
             police audio indicates there were perhaps as many as 4 shooters, with 1 being either shot or apprehended (Conspiracy Café-You Tube)
       
        The evidence strongly suggests he was innocent and that the murder of his mother, his "suicide", and the atrocity were done by black ops agents.         
              In Psychic Warfare, '83,  Martin Ebon reports that the Rockefeller Foundation have been financing psychotronic mind control research since the '50s. And there is the other Rockefeller connection already mentioned.  Interestingly enough, the Rockefellers are in the « Illuminati. » which is a matter of public record (Geocities, etc.). And in the Dunblane case, as already mentioned, the perpetrator had ties to Freemasonry.
              In "Psychology of School Shootings"(on-line),  Dewey Cornell, of the  U of Virginia identifies 3 types of young people who commit homicide:
             1. psychotics (5% ); he seems to be saying only these are mentally ill when antisocial personality disorder (sociopathy) is the most serious menta illness.
             2. anti-socials (67%); these are aggressive, impulsive, with generally below average intelligence, long history of delinquent or disruptive behaviour, and problems evident in early childhood; drug abuse and gang membership are common; tend to come from disadvantaged homes and disfunctional families.
             3. does not give a name for these but calls them "most puzzling"; does not give a % (they are probably not at 28% as school shootings are comparitively rare); they appear normal but are emotionally troubled and conflicted, alienated, angry, and depressed;  they decide to kill others rather than themselves; tend to be loners; involved in most school shootings.
             There are 2 obvious errors here. Firstly, in almost all school shootings the person  commits suicide as well as homicide. Secondly,  loners  are not involved in most such incidents. As well, he blames the availibity of guns but fails to mention self-defense and other legitimate gun use and makes the misleading statement that there was an increase in gun violence but no increase in stabbing or beating deaths failing to mention the obvious fact that if guns were not available other just as or more dangerous weapons would be used. Also, he does not identify the 3rd group as the amok syndrome and he does not point out that this 3rd, modern amok syndrome, group does not have a long history of anti-social or similar behaviour and this is especially why it is puzzling. He should be saying that most of this group are school shooters, not that most school shooters are of this group. And he seems to say the cause of such incidents is media violence but this is contradicted by the 2 studies earlier mentioned.
           There will be many people who will be skeptical as the mind control explanation is not one they would be given to like nor one they would be given to believe but the evidence is there and it is very compelling and convincing and  has to be taken very seriously.
           Regardless of the cause it goes without saying defenses are necessary but it is difficult to defend against such crimes as many schools have dozens of entrances and some have several campuses involving a 100 or more entrances. Metal detectors are useful but the most important defense in immediate threat situations is armed guards. In potential threat there are measures that can be taken as mentioned by
         Immediate threat security measures are just as important as potential threat measures but the left believes that the former is more important, downplaynig the latter.  Dawson still does not have armed guards. Also, criminals take the path of least resistance so they will attack more those places that have fewer security measures and those people who are less armed. And if schools were unassailable they would attack other venues, shopping malls, for instance,  as we have seen in Omaha in 2007. Schools can do threat assessments for high risk people. Cornell says that in cases where schools have done investigations of student threats and found them to be serious," they have prevented many shootings. "   Anonymous "Safe-to-Tell" phone hotlines that students can call if a classmate is severely depressed and if they notice that he's got a gun. In several cases in recent years, anonymous tip lines have helped head off potentially deadly incidents, police say. Also, schools need to have an emergency plan in place.
         But even fundamental security measures such as armed guards and metal detectors are usually refered to as paranoia, hysteria, or panic even in mainstream  media which is an irrational fear as it is a fear of security and guns and is itself paranoia, hysteria, and panic, when such measures are very reasoned and even necessary,  but excessive gun control is rarely refered to as paranoid, panicky, or hysterical when it obviously is. No one intends to make schools into bunkers and yet this is what anti-gunners fear so it is the anti-gunners who are paranoid. It is the paranoia, hysteria, and panic of the extreme left, with its irrational fears of guns, security, and self-defense,  that we need to guard against.
          There is obviously a reactionary element in society,  a lunatic fringe, which is  characterized by maladaptive skepticism/orthodoxy fanaticism,  which uses compulsive mud-slinging and compulsive lying,  believes  that conspiracies can't happen, that everything is paranoia,  that the truth, the facts, and the evidence don't matter, have no concept of concern, awareness, nor ethics, are totally subjective, have a minimal ability to reason, and oppose reason and logic. It claims  that any conspiracy thesis,  no matter how plausible and well-founded, is necessarily wrong simply because it is a conspiracy thesis, not considering the evidence as to whether or not there is  a conspiracy.
         They are hypocrites in more ways than one because they do projection (the pot calling the kettle black), pretend to be for truth when they seek to suppress it or don't consider it, pretend to be rational and logical when they are the exact opposite, and believe in conspiracies themselves like the plot to make the JFK assassination look like a conspiracy that would have to exist if there was no conspiracy behind the asassination,  the supposed plot to perpetrate a hoax at Roswell or to cover up some secret government project, and the conspiracy behind 9/11 but pretending, even given the idea  that it was the Arabs behind it, that there was no conspiracy. 
       Contrary to the lunatic fringe's risible claims, which are easily debunked, disproven, and ridiculed,  it takes only 2 to make a conspiracy and they are tried in courts on a frequent basis and conspiracy is part of the Criminal Code.  The lunatic fringe that the co-conspirators caught and executed in the Lincoln assassination were actually optical illusions, that the there was only 1 person who planned and carried out 9/11, and that the Gunpowder Plot never happened. Often it ia question of what kind of conspiracy.  In the Roswell incident the question is if there was a conspiracy to cover-up  a government accident or a craft from space. In 9/11 it is whether there was an Arab conspiracy or one by the American government.
         The pseudo-skeptics in the anti-truth movement, which may be the majority,  much like in the UFO debate where many "skeptics" are actually cover-up agents or cover-up supporters, say the same things as the maladaptive skeptics except that they know full well there is a conspiracy and obviously do the propaganda to protect the criminal groups, but are otherwise much the same as the true skeptics.

Gun Control    10 pp.
        
        Reasonable gun control is part of the solution, excessive gun control is part of the problem.
 
        I did  calculations using quantifiable data which are here presented in table 2 concerning the relationship between gun density and homicide rates. Gun density is  a strong indicator of gun availability and strictness of gun laws and largely corresponds to them. I included, of course, only those countries for which I was able to find the appropriate data but the 30  are a very comprehensive  and representative sampling.

 7th U N Survey of Crime Trends and Operations of Criminal Justice Systems, covering the period 1998 - 2000 (U N Office on Drugs and Crime, Center for International Crime Prevention); UN Intl. Study on Firearm Regulation; Wikipedia-list of countries by homicide rate. Colombia is sometimes listed at 60 or 80 for homicide rate but more often at 37; Mexico is sometimes listed at 17.
 (for gun density rates, from Nation Master website)
Vladeta Ajdacic-Gross et al., "Firearm suicides and the availability of firearms: analysis of longitudinal international data.", 2006; Martin Killias, 1993, School of Forensic Sciences and Criminology, University of Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland; Geneva Graduate Institute of International Studies "Small Arms Survey 2007."
         The only way to objectively  differentiate between high and low values is to calculate the averages so for example over 21 is a high gun density. The tally is:
              high homicide rate-high gun density    0
              low homicide rate-high gun density    11
              high homicide rate-low gun density    8
              low homicide rate-low gun density     11
      The correlation between high  homicide rates and low gun density is at c. 30%, between low homicide rates and low gun density is at 35%, and between low homicide rates and high gun density is also at 35%, and between high homicide rates and high gun density is 0 %. Taken together the data favour guns  at a 2-1 ratio or 65% (the 1st 3 summary pair comparisons) to  35% (the 4th summary pair comparison). The results, therefore, show that gun control plays a role in crime control but that it is not the whole story by any means and that there is a correlatioon between liberal gun laws and low homicide rates which corroborates results  from other studies.
         Japan is oft touted as a model for gun control but Saudi Arabia has a lower homicide rate and a gun density of 26! And 5 countries have a gun density of 30 or more and a homicide rate of less than 2.
          Brazil has a gun registry; all civilian handguns are limited to a minimum 9mm. caliber; all rifles must fire handgun ammunition only; Brazilians may  buy only 1 gun per year; at any one time, they may only have in their possession a maximum of six guns: 2 handguns, 2 rifles, and 2 shotguns. To transport their guns, citizens must obtain a special police permit. CCW (concealed carry weapons) permits are available but rarely issued.
        Reasonable gun control includes disallowance of licenses for people with criminal or psychiatric records; waiting periods and background checks;  the banning of assault rifles, machine guns, and machine pistols for civilian use; gun registration where practical;  a gun club registry; the requirement to report suspicious behaviour or intents involving guns if it can be corroborated. I include waiting periods even though studies have consistenly shown they have no effect on gun crime (Kleck, ).
          Furthermore, guns are used in self-defense  2.5 mln. (Kleck, Point Blank, 1993; Kleck and Gertz, Armed resitance to crime, J. Crim. Law Criminol.) times in the US alone (Gary Kleck is a member of the ACLU, Amnesty International, and Common Cause and won the Am. Soc. Criminol.’s Hindelbang Award for 1993).
         Moreover, Newsweek reported that only 2% of civilian shootings were against an innocent person mistakenly identified as a criminal while the error rate for the police is a whopping 11%, over 5 times as high! And the anti-gun lobby says only the authorities are qualified  to have guns for self-defense.
         In John Lott's study "More Guns, Less Crime" (1998, U. of Chicago Press) it was found that states that allow concealed carry of firearms the  violent crime rates dropped by 8.5% for murder, 5% for rapes, 7 % for aggravated assaults, and 3% for robbery. This means 1570 murders, 4177 rapes, 60,000 aggravated asaults, and 11,000 robberies were prevented annually.
         Also, the question of whether or not guns could still have been acquired in the case of school shootings is irrelevant because the program was to use mostly legal guns to have guns abolished. In the typical situation and for someone determined enough guns could  still be acquired on the black market and relatively easily.
        The Pearl, Miss., case is a spectacular example of  a gun used by  a private citizen to prevent further violence and save  lives. The principal went to his car and took out a .45caliber pistol and with it convinced the perpetrator to end the shooting. In fact, less than 1 % of civilian gun defense incidents involve a fatal shooting (Gary Kleck, Guns and Self-Defense-Pulpless website). 2 more facts the anti-gun lobby conveniently ignores.
         American women use a handgun 416 times a day in self-defense against rapists, which is 12 times more than  a rapist uses a gun (Stopping Power, J. Neil Schulman). A gun kept in the home for protection is 216 times more likely to be used in self-defense against a criminal than it is to cause the  death of an innocent victim in that household (Stopping Power, J. Neil Schulman)(the author is an award-winning novelist, screenwriter, and journalist). Yet more facts the anti-gun lobby likes to ignore.
         To promote "safe zones" for our children, a 1995 federal law now bans guns within 1,000 feet of a school. Unfortunately, again, it is the law-abiding citizens who disarm -- not the criminals intent on harming our children. With the recent school attacks, even the most die-hard proponents of this law will be hard-pressed to claim that it has worked out the way  it was intended (BNET -Availability of Guns is Not the Cause of Youth Violence by John Lott).
         Despite the political rhetoric, gun availability in the United States has never been as restricted as it is now. As late as 1968, it was possible for children to walk into a hardware store, virtually anywhere in the United States, and buy a rifle. Few states even had age restrictions for buying handguns. Buying a rifle through the mail was easy. Private transfers of guns to juveniles were unrestricted (BNET -"Availability of Guns is Not the Cause of Youth Violence" by John Lott).
        In a VOA News Now Encounter interview Richard Arum and Edward Taylor made some very insightful comments about gun control. The title is Sociology of School Shootings, the transcript is on line, and the interview can be heard on-line.
 Richard Arum, director of the SSRC's (Social Science Research Council) program on educational research and an NYU professor of sociology and education, is a leading expert on education reform and the author of Judging School Discipline: The Crisis of Moral Authority. Edward Taylor, a professor of social work at the University of Minnesota, has done a survey of high school students on their fears about school violence. His current research looks at mental disorders and violence.
          I include those comments  here.
        
        Arum: It has more to do with how the violence is manifested. We've had violent images in our media for a long time. You go back to the '50s and '60s, we had westerns and war movies that were very violent. We also had guns readily available in this country in the '50s and '60s. These rampage school shootings, however, are a fairly recent phenomenon. There was one dramatic case in the '60s in the U.S. at a university in Texas. There was one case I know of in the '70s. But in the '80s and '90s, we started seeing these rampage school shootings occurring not just every year but now almost monthly in this country. So I think what's really changed in the last two decades is how schools have been affected by legislation and regulations that have made it very difficult for them to deal with troubled kids, both at the college level but also at the elementary and secondary levels.
        Arum: Again, I would point to the fact that guns have been widely available in our society for a long time, and we didn't have this history of rampage school shootings. So I think looking solely at the gun culture as an explanation for this is a mistake. That being said, do I personally believe that guns are too readily available? Here we had a case where an individual with a history of mental illness was able to walk into a store and purchase a weapon. It would be hard to argue that this makes any rational sense at all.
        Taylor: I think there will be. In my mind -- I'm not citing research here, it's my bias -- there's no doubt that we need to have better control over the purchase and ownership of guns at the national level. By the same token, those favoring gun control really overlook the fact that this is one piece of a very complex fabric of violence that occurs. Years ago, I worked for NIH in the heart institute. And one of the studies the institute did was on the role stress plays in heart attacks. What they found is that it accounts for about 7-8% of why a person has a heart attack. From a researcher's point of view to quantify eight percent is really a wonderful thing. But from the point of view of resolving the nation's cardiology problem, it's not such a big thing. I think that probably the gun issue is like that. It's part of the problem, and it would be helpful to get better control of it. But it's the cultural and mental health problems that we really need to look at.
        Arum: I would add that the history of our own country -- some of the terrible terrorist incidents that have occurred here as well as the rest of the world -- indicate that you can do damage of this scale and scope without guns.
        
        It cannot be emphasized enough:
          looking solely at the gun « culture » as an explanation for this is a mistake.
          incidents that have occurred here as well as the rest of the world -- indicate that you can do damage of this scale and scope
                 without guns.
         many people favouring gun control really overlook the fact that this is one piece of a very complex fabric of violence that
                occurs.
         We also had guns readily available in this country in the '50s and '60s. These rampage school shootings, however, are a
                fairly recent phenomenon.
          
        In fact, guns were readily available in the '60s and before and much more so but not afterwards and there was less crime before and very rarely school shootings. Another fact the anti-gun lobby conveniently ignores.
 It should be noted also that moral and social codes in the '50s and '60s were  a lot more civilized and the violence in the media was very temperate and mild, contrary to what the interviewees were suggesting, and explicit violence became the norm since the '70s and is considered normal and acceptable which, along with the rise of radicalism ( anti-social behaviour and thinking) in general, especially seen in movements like « women's lib » and the hippies and yippies, and political « correctness »,  indicates a serious decline in the mental health of society.
         And as John Lott says, nowhere were guns more common than at school. Until 1969, virtually every public high school in New York City had a shooting club. High school students carried their guns to school on the subways in the morning, turned them over to their home room teacher or the gym coach and retrieved them after school for target practice. Club members were given their rifles and ammunition by the federal government. Students regularly competed in city-wide shooting contests for university scholarships. Now the hysteria and paranoia are  so severe that even the suggestion of an armed guard, a water pistol, or a gun-pretend hand is sometimes met with expulsions or firings (BNET -"Availability of Guns is Not the Cause of Youth Violence" by John Lott).
        The following facts illustrate our point:
        The number of victims in modern episodes is similar to the number in amok despite the fact that handguns and rifles are used in contrast to the Malay swords of 2 centuries ago.
         In Bath Township, Mich., in 1927 their were 3 bombings in 1 day which made 103 victims, mostly children, 45 dead and 58 injured, it was the worst school massacre in US history.
         In the Koln tragedy from '64, mentioned earlier, the perpetrator used a home-made flame-thrower and lance to murder 8 students and 2 teachers and injure 21 others, mostly students, more than in most school shootings.
         In Osaka, Japan, in 2001, at the Ikeda Elementary School, a knife was used to murder 8 girls and injure 11 other people. In 1995 in the Tokyo Subway 12 people wre murdered with poison gas with 50 others seriously injured.
         Oklahoma City, 9/11, suicide bombers, Rwandan genocide, ad infinitum.
         All facts the anti-gun lobby ignores or conveniently forgets.
         But part of the problem concerning guns and their control is that some of the laws already on the books are not enforced so that someone  with a psych record is able to get a licence as was the case in the Dawson and Virginia Tech incidents.
         On  1 end of the anti-gun lobby are well-meaning people, some of whom have been victims to gun violence, directly or indirectly, but on the other are the extremists, who are the majority, who are openly opposed to self-defense and want guns to be abolished, conduct pseudoscientific studies that are deliberately flawed, do  hysterical and incoherent rants against guns and self-defense, and resort to mud-slinging because they are not capable of intelligent nor coherent criticism;  their claims are easily disproven, and they ignore the facts and refuse to listen to reason.
        The anti-gun lobby has a serious credibility problem for 3 reasons.
             1. 4 obviously false and nonsensical  premises
                  that guns cause crime
                  that they can only be used by criminals or authority figures
                  that they are the only weapons or the most dangerous ones
                  that if they were abolished there would be no more homicides or their rates  would be drastically or substantially reduced
             They might as well say also that only women commit crime, that the NRA is against guns,  and that cars should be banned because they cause accidents.
              The gun lobby does not say that guns can't be used illegally and  that they are not dangerous weapons.  However, they often say that they are against gun control and there are many who are libertarian (right-wing permissive) which doesn't help their cause but most do support at least basic gun control.
             The motto of journalism is « Never let the facts get in the way of  a good story. » The motto of the anti-gun lobby, and, indeed, the anti-truth movement in general,  is « Never let the facts get in the way of a bad attitude. » and its slogan is: "Hang the gun and let the criminal go free."
         2. The  left, notorious for its insensitivity, anti-social views and behaviour,  and favouritism towards crime, and which is often heard to say "crime isn't a problem " (left-wing broadcasters Craig Oliver and Anne Lagacé-Dauson, to name but 2, say exactly this),  massively supports the anti-gun lobby and makes up most of it. It considers itself liberal but is illiberal about guns and many other issues. The left is hypocritical in many other ways as I outline in The Myth of the « Liberal Left. ».
         3. The lies, distortions, detached facts, half-truths, and purposely slanted data techniques of the anti-gun lobby, which uses the National Institute of Justice, 1997, survey which is the only 1 out of 16 total to show self-defense gun use at less than 700, 000 times a year,  as evidence to claim that self-defense gun use is rare or non-existent. Authors of the NIJ report are anti-gun criminologists.
         As Dr. Faria points out, the  studies done by Kellermann and  Reay making counterintuitive claims contradicting the tenets of the gun lobby concerning self-defense  were severely criticized by numerous investigators, who have not only discerned methodological and conceptual errors but also found that the authors had failed to consider and underestimated the protective benefits of guns (Suter E. Guns in the medical literature -- a failure of peer review. J Med Assoc Ga 1994;83(3):137-148; Kopel DB. Children and Guns in Guns Who Should Have Them, New York, NY, Prometheus Books, 1995, pp. 309-443; Faria MA Jr. Public health and gun control --- A review (Part I): The benefits of firearms and (Part II): Gun violence and constitutional issues. Medical Sentinel 2001;6(1):11-18.). Yet another example of the dishonesty of the anti-gunners and their deliberately flawed  research.
        The $20-$40 billion figure in U.S. health care costs in the treatment of gunshot wounds so frequently cited in the medical literature has been found to be a deliberate and exaggerated estimate of lifetime productivity lost, where every victim of crime is assumed to have become a wealthy successful citizen had he not met an untimely demise and many "victims" are criminal elements who have been killed in the act of perpetrating serious crimes either by the police or by law-abiding citizens acting in self-defense.  The actual figure is around $1.5 bln., which is less than .2 percent of the U.S. annual health care expenditures ( Guns and Violence by Miguel Faria- the Hacienda Pub website's Editor's Corner).
        And Rosy O' Donnell said, on The View, that guns are not used for self-defense. She also says no one wants to take away the guns of legitimate gun-owners which is  totally false as there are many who do, witness  the anti-gun lobby.
         Sometime in the '90s on a radio show on CFCF in Montreal a former CJAD broadcaster Jim Duff said, « Guns should be banned because they're used in violent crime and we don't need guns for self-defense because there's no violent crime. » This exactly represents, typifies, and sums up the unimaginable incoherence and inanity of the anti-gun lobby. Not surprisingly he also opposes anti-crime measures which is also typical and representative of it.
         It is because of prejudices and stereotyping that Americans are singled out as having permissive gun laws when most states don’t even allow self-defense, and as being the most violent country when 40 countries have homicide rates higher than the US which has a homicide rate lower than the avergae even  at 6 per 100, 000 inhabitants which was the rate for some time, while Mexico is at 13, Russia at 17, Brazil 27, Colombia 37, S. Africa 41, and Venezuela 50 (Wikipedia-List of countries by homicide rate). In the UN Survey on Crime Trends from 2000, out of 30 countries, 17 have higher crime rates than the US, including Russia, Mexico, S. Africa, and Colombia. All these nations have repressive or strict gun laws.
         Yet another important point is that Glasgow is the most violent city in the Western World and knives are the problem there, not guns (CBC-TV's Sunday Report). And guns are the weapon of choice for criminals in the US but in Canada it is knives. As well, there is the incident in Japan where 8 children were murdered at 1 time with a knife. There were no guns used in the Oklahoma City bombing, nor in 9/11 nor in suicide bombings. All cases that very definitely prove that as much or more damage can be done with other weapons as pointed out by Professors Arum and Taylor, a fact the anti-gun lobby conveniently ignores.  See also Miguel A. Faria, Jr., M.D., Editor emeritus of the Medical Sentinel of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), http://www.hacienda/ pub.com. This article is excerpted in part from Medical Warrior: Fighting Corporate Socialized Medicine.
         Between 25-75 lives are saved by a gun for every life lost to a gun. Medical costs saved by guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens are 15 times greater than costs incurred by criminal uses of firearms. Guns also prevent injuries to good people and protect billions of dollars of property every year (Guns and Violence by Miguel Faria- the Hacienda Pub website's Editor's Corner).
          In '96 the Tasmanian massacre occured and the Australian government panicked by resorting to a police state measure, banning most firearms, and ordering their confiscation. More than 640,000 guns were seized from ordinary Australian citizens ( Faria MA Jr., Gun control in Australia - chaos down under. Medical Sentinel 2000;5(3):107). Predictably, there was a sharp and dramatic increase in violent crime against the disarmed law-abiding citizens, who in small communities and particularly in rural areas are no longer able to protect themselves. That same year in the State of Victoria, there was a 300% jump in homicides committed with firearms. The following year, robberies shot up almost 60% in South Australia. By 1999, assaults had increased in NSW by almost 20%. Two years following the gun ban and confiscation, armed robberies rose by 73%, unarmed robberies by 28%, kidnappings  38%, assaults 17%, and manslaughter  30 % ( Australian Bureau of Statistics). The measure, in other words, was a complete disaster.
         The same thing occurred in Britain. Following the Dunblane tragedy in '96 already mentioned,  the British government also panicked and banned and ordered the confiscation of most firearms. Since then a terrible crime wave has predictably swept England and Scotland. In 1998, the U.S. Justice Department  declared that the rate of muggings in England had surpassed that in the U.S. by 40 %, and assault and burglary rates were nearly 100 % higher in England than in the U.S.
         As Dr. Faria points out, as well, that many educators and criminologists assert that we must lay the blame for gun violence where it belongs: An increasingly permissive culture that for many years has been mired in political « correctness » (red reactionism) and where public schools no longer teach moral values, leading to situational ethics and moral relativism, i.e., amoral  views. To the detriment of children, building self-esteem has been placed ahead of personal morality. There is also lack of discipline at home and in schools because parents and teachers are afraid of reprimanding the young for fear of being denounced by social workers, charged with child abuse, and prosecuted by the state.
         A study by the U.S. Justice Dept.'s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention tracked 4000 juveniles aged 6-15 in Denver, Pittsburgh, and Rochester, NY from 1993-1995. The investigators found that children who use firearms with parental supervision, for hunting and target shooting, are less likely to commit acts of violence and street crimes (14 %) than children who have no guns in their homes (24 %) whereas children who obtain guns illegally do so at the whopping rate of 74 % ( U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, "Urban Delinquency and Substance Abuse," 1999, p. 18.
         Dr. Faria says that this study also provides more evidence that in close nuclear families, where children are close to their parents, youngsters can be taught to use guns responsibly and that these youngsters, in fact, grew up to be more responsible in their conduct and more civil in their behaviour.
          But the cause, where it concerns school shootings, as already mentioned, is also the criminal use of mind control.
         As Dr. Faria says, « We can be compassionate and still be honest and have the moral courage to pursue the truth and find viable solutions through the use of sound, scholarly research. The problem of guns and violence should be no different. We have an obligation to reach our conclusions based on objective data and scientific information rather than on ideology, emotionalism, or partisan politics. »
(Bennett JT, DiLorenzo TJ. From Pathology to Politics: Public Health in America. New Brunswick, NJ, Transaction Publishers, 2000. See also the review of this book by Faria, MA Jr. Public health - from science to politics. Medical Sentinel 2001;6(2):46-49).         
        Gun registration can only serve to track guns already used in crimes and can give the police certain information when approaching the  house of a suspect, however, this information is only of limited use as illegal guns are not registered. As well, in Canada, the computer error rate is as high as 50% (Justice Dept.; Gary Breitkreuz-5 Reasons Why Police Oppose Gun Registration website) and the non-compliance rate is 58% (Government-Environics survey '97; Gary Breitkreuz-5 Reasons website) which makes it very unreliable. Handguns in Canada have been under a gun registry since '34 but this has had no effect on homicide rates (Canada's Gun Registry Has Not Improved Public Safety- Newsgroups/Derkeiler website). Moreover, the homicide rate has incresed 9% since the registry was introduced in '95 (Hubris in the North by Gary Mauser of the Fraser Institute, on-line). Also, the cost is prohibitive, running at $2 bln.
        Although there is no problem with the concept of some kind of gun registry, in practice it is not very effective in crime prevention nor crime resolution. Canadians tend to be in accord with these assessments as 54% of Canadians feel the gun registry is badly organized, isn't working properly, and should be scrapped; 56% blame  Whig politicians and not bureaucrats for the bungling and 67% support the idea of some type of gun registry (Ipsos-Reed survey, '06).
         Criminals, not surprisingly, support repressive gun control as Mafia turncoat Sammy the Bull Gravano expressed in  a Vanity Fair interview saying that it is the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. « If I'm the bad guy, » he explained, « I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You pull the trigger with  a safety lock on and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. » The criminal may not always have a gun but he often will and safety locks and other restrictions on self-defense favour criminals and are meant to do so.
         Important points to be emphasized concerning legitimate uses of firearms are:
            The right of the private citizen to own a gun for self-defense is not allowed in any country save for certain particular or extenuating circumstances. Such a prohibition,  along with prohibition on handguns and/or long guns  are police state measures, favour criminals, and are egregious and unacceptable violations of human rights and freedoms.
             There are 9 legitimate occupations that employ firearms. Law enforcement, court guards, prison guards, military defense, private security guards, private detectives, animal control, park rangers, and hunting as a livelihood as is done by some natives in some regions of northern Canada. 
            Self-defense  does not only include security against violent criminals but also dangerous animals such as bears and cougars when one goes hiking or camping but also in other circumstances as, for instance, in some places in northern Canada where firearms are even required because of polar bears.
            Other legitimate uses of guns are recreational  target shooting, competition target shooting,  which is even part of the Olympics,  clay, trap, and skeet shooting, pest control, and sport hunting. There might be some legitimate objections raised, however,  as to the last one.
            Legitimate gun-owners are the ones who are most against crime, most guns are used legally, and most guns used in crimes are already illegal.
            It is also a mistake to assume that if guns were not available the other weapons, bombs, knives, bows and arrows, lances, flame throwers, swords, and poison gas would be used at the same rate as they are now. At least bombs and knives would in fact be used as much as guns and would, of course, cause as much or more damage, as we have seen.
        And the police oppose guns out of elitism (and obviously have a double standard since they have guns themselves) which is irresponsible at best and any policeman who is against guns shouldn't be allowed to have 1 and should be relegated to a desk job or  be fired or not hired to begin with; the public out of hysteria; and the left out of antisocial attitudes.
        Although it is understandable for those who have been victims of gun violence directly or indirectly to associate the gun with the criminal, for others it is a defect in reasoning which causes prejudices against guns and gun-owners and leads to repressive gun laws. A gun is only as good or as bad as the person using it. Guns are not  a 1-way street.  It is criminals, and the politicians, courts, and parole boards who support them, who are the menace to public safety, not guns.

the JFK Assassination     4 1/2 pp.

That there was a conspiracy behind the assassination of President Kennedy and that the Mafia was a central player in it is proven beyond any doubt.
 
Major points of evidence are:

        1. Rose Cheramie warned the police of approaching hit on JFK;  Jack Zangretti expressed foreknowledge of the event and was murdered in December, '63; Edward Becker was told about it ahead of time by Mafia don Santos Trafficante; José Aleman was also given advanced knowledge by a Mafia don, this time being Carlos Marcello; Joseph Milteer said a high-powered rifle from an office building would be used;
        2. many medical doctors who examined the photos and x-rays say there was an entry wound in the right temple and an exit wound in the back of the head indicating a shot from the front, some testifying to this effect, e.g., Robert McClelland an ER physician (Kennedy Assassination Conspiracy Theories-Wikipedia).
        3. the Zapruder film shows a shot from the front
        4.  Jean Hill, the Lady in Red, and Ken Bowers, were witnesses to the Grassy Knoll gunmen
        5.  the 2 Secret Service  agents in the front row of the presidential limosine ( a Lincoln Continental code-named SS-100-X), Paul Greer, the driver, and Ray Kellermann, acted contrary to their own agency's  regulations and procedure in doing nothing to protect the president during the shooting; the driver was supposed to speed up to leave the shooting  zone but slowed down instead; the 2 Secret Service agents on foot flanking the presidential limosine were called away; and 1 of the motorcycles escorting the motorcade, just before the shooting started, veered off and disappeared (Oddities of the JFK Assassination by Prof. Wilkes, on-line; JFK Assassination-Secret Service Standdown and JFK-Bizarre Standdown, both on You Tube)
        6. Lee Bowers witnessed men behind picket fence on the Grassy Knoll; he died in a single car accident in Aug.,  '66
        7. dictabelt records shots from Grassy Knoll;  a study shows they occurred at the same time as the assassination and that they did not was based on several false assumptions ("Echo Correlation Analysis," D.B. Thomas, '01, Science and  Justice 41: 21-32)

       There were some 2000 books written and published on the subject but  highly recommended, aside from those already cited, is Someone Would Have Talked: the Assassination of JFK and the Conspiracy to Mislead History" ( Larry Hancock, 620 pp., JFK Lancer, '06. 9x6x2) where we find a synthesis of the literature.  Here is a review from Publishers' Weekly.

        Someone Would Have Talked goes beyond proving a conspiracy to murder President Kennedy. Over 14.000 documents, White House diaries, telephone logs, and executive tape recordings detail how the new president, Lyndon B. Johnson, managed a cover-up that changed the future of our country. A second conspiracy designed to mislead the nation, the world, indeed, history. Someone Would Have Talked was written to demonstrate with available information, the cover-up, the leaks, Lee Oswald, Jack Ruby and the people that did talk, providing a cohesive and coherent explanation of events. And in doing so this book gives the reader an introduction to the history of the secret war against Castro and against Communism during the 1960s, an introduction that is vital to an appreciation of the individuals, and their motivations. Someone Would Have Talked deals with specific people who talked about their personal knowledge of a conspiracy in the murder of a President. These individuals include four men associated with the CIA' s JM WAVE station in Miami Florida. Two of them were senior CIA officers, one a veteran of three years of Castro assassination projects and the other a three year prisoner of Castro - and an organizer and participant, along with a former U.S. Ambassador, in one of the most potentially explosive Cuban penetration missions ever conducted.

        Books that finger the Mafia include:

        The Plot to Kill the President, G.R. Blakey and R.N. Billings, 1981, 428 pp. Times Books.
        ZR Rifle: the Plot to Kill Kennedy and Castro, Claudia Furiati, Ocean Press, 1994, 164 pp. tranl. Maxine Shaw.
        JFK: the Cuba Files-the Untold Story of the Plot to Kill Kennedy, Fabian Escalante, 2006, Ocean Press, 261 pp.
        the Zenith Secret: a CIA Insider Exposes the Secret War Against Cuba, Bradley Ayers, Vox Pop, '07, 287 pp.

        Here is a Product Description for the Zenith Secret on Amazon:
       
        The sinister inside story of the little-known, illegal, CIA field station on U.S. soil: the Miami operation code-named JMWAVE. This elite CIA group selected Ayers, then one of the Army's top unconventional warfare specialists, to help train spies sent to Cuba. Under the corporate cover of Zenith Technical Enterprises, Ayers worked directly with JMWAVE Station Chief Ted Shackley, who lead CIA assassination attempts on Castro. Ayers met and worked with David Morales (who had ties to mobster Johnny Roselli)and Orlando Bosch. Both are today considered key plotters of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Brad Ayers, now 70, is now ready to fully expose who and what made up JMWAVE, a dark place in time he calls the "seedbed of national tragedy."
       
        The last 3 titles make an especially convincing and compelling case that the  same people who tried to assassinate Castro were the ones behind the JFK murder. And there had long been an alliance or association between the Mafia and the CIA. In other words, most of the evidence, including recently released information, has always pointed to basically the same people.

        The following are also highly recommended.

        Crossfire-the Plot that Killed Kennedy, Jim Marrs, 1989, Carrol and Graf.
        Besmirching History     Michael Green (debunks Bugliosi's book, an anti-truth rant and a fit of fiction touted as fact).
        Double Cross, Chuck and Sam Giancana, 1992, Warner Books. here the brother and Godson make important revelations
                about the  Mafia's involvement.
        the Ruby Cover-Up
        Case Open: the Omissions, Distortions, and Falsifications of Case Closed (debunks Posner's anti-truth rant).
        Mafia Kingfish: Carlos Marcello and the Assassination of JFK
        JFK: the Last Dissenting Witness ( about Jean Hill).

        Among the conspirators usually fingered are CIA agents D.A. Philipps and David Morales (black ops specialist); Cuban exile Antonio Veciano; Mafia kingpins Carlos Marcello of New Orleans, Santos Trafficante of Florida, and Sam Giancana of Chicago.
        The motives for the assassination are quite evident as Kennedy had made several enemies-- the CIA (he wanted to shut it down), the Mafia (he had started a campaign against them), and Cuban exiles (he hadn't given them air support for the invasion).  And J. Edgar Hoover had no great liking for him. So there was a convergnce of interests which benefitted from his elimination.
        That Johnson ordered it and his henchman were the shooters (Blood, Money, and Power, '03, 400 pp., Hannover House) is probably an exaggeration and in any case the Johnson group was only a part of it. The following is  from Publishers Weekly.

        McClellan's overwrought conspiracy theory claims that Lyndon Johnson--motivated by power lust, fear of being dropped from the Kennedy ticket, and the need to cover up various scandals--masterminded Kennedy's assassination with the help of his evil "superlawyer" Ed Clark. But his evidence is meager and murky, even by the standards of Kennedy conspiracy scholarship. The main exhibit is a smudged partial fingerprint from Oswald's sniper's nest that may or may not belong to a Johnson associate, depending on which fingerprint expert you ask. Otherwise McClellan relies on what he heard during his years at Clark's law firm-e.g., a partner told him that Clark arranged the assassination-and the description of scenes in which a "a fixed stare," vague, unspoken understandings, and "code words" proved that Johnson and Clark were conspiring. Sample accusations include: "I knew Clark was admitting to the payoff for the assassination even though he never said he received a payoff for assassinating Kennedy...." The book offers many detailed accounts of conspiratorial meetings that turn out to be not fact but "faction" or "journalistic novelization"-that is, conjecture designed to distract readers from the lack of evidence. McClellan styles the assassination as the defeat of Camelot by Texas's sleazy nexus of dirty politicians, slick lawyers and oil money; the unmasking of Johnson, the personification of such back-room power politics, therefore promises a public "emotional purging" leading to the renewal of democracy.
   
        And from an Amazon reader-reviewer: Even he admits his book relies mostly on something he refers to as "faction."
        The book was made into a History Channel documentary, "the Guilty Men".
        But "The Texas Connection," E. Howard Hunt, in his autobio "American Spy",  LBJ's  former mistress Madeleine Brown, and Jack Ruby also make damning accusations concerning his involvement and foreknowledge.
       As for the 3 tramps arrested after the assassination, they  were identified as Chauncy Holt, Charles Harrelson (father of Woody), and Charles Rogers, by Lois Gibson of the Houston Police, probably the most respected forensic artist and facial expert who was awarded a notation in the Guiness for the highest crime-solving rate based on composite sketches.
        Among those who believe there was a conspiracy are Bobby Kennedy, Jacqui Kennedy, Claire Booth-Luce, and William F. Buckley, Jr., as well as most Americans, 81% in '01 (Gallup website). It would also have us believe there was no conspiracy in the Lincoln asassination, since for it there is no such thing as a conspiracy, yet  the 7 co-conspirators were caught and 4 were executed with 3 receiving a life sentence (Wikipedia-the Abraham Lincoln assassination).
         There is obviously a reactionay element in society, a lunatic fringe,  characterized by crank skepticism,  which uses compulsive mud-slinging and compulsive lieing,  believes  that conspiracies can't happen, that everything is paranoia,  that the truth, the facts, and the evidence don't matter, have no concept of concern, awareness, nor ethics, are totally subjective, have a minimal ability to reason, and oppose reason and logic. It claims  that any conspiracy thesis,  no matter how plausible and well-founded, is necessarily wrong simply because it is a conspiracy thesis, not considering the evidence as to whether or not there is  a conspiracy. Compulsive mud-slinging and compulsive lieing are symptoms of psychopathy and the beliefs that conspiracies can't happen and that everything is paranoia are psychotic delusions.
        They are hypocrites in more ways than one because they do projection (the pot calling the kettle black), which is also a psychopathic symptom, pretend to be for truth when they seek to suppress it or don't consider it, pretend to be rational and logical when they are the exact opposite, and believe in conspiracies themselves like the plot to make the JFK assassination look like a conspiracy that would have to exist if there was no conspiracy behind the asassination,  the supposed plot to perpetrate a hoax at Roswell or to cover up some secret government project, and the conspiracy behind 9/11 but pretending, even given the idea  that it was the Arabs behind it, that there was no conspiracy. 
       Contrary to the lunatic fringe's nonsensical claims, it takes only 2 to make a conspiracy and they are tried in courts on a frequent basis and conspiracy is part of the Criminal Code.  The lunatic fringe would have us believe that the 2 perpetrators of the Columbine massacre acted independently and that the co-conspirators caught and executed in the Lincoln assassination were actually optical illusions, that there was only 1 person who planned and carried out 9/11, and that the Gunpowder Plot never happened.  In the Roswell incident the question is if there was a conspiracy to cover-up  a government accident or a craft from space. In 9/11 it is whether there was an Arab conspiracy or one by the American government.
         The pseudo-skeptics in the anti-truth cult,  much like in the UFO debate where many "skeptics" are actually cover-up agents or cover-up supporters, say the same things as the crank skeptics except that they know full well there is a conspiracy and obviously do the propaganda to protect the criminal groups, but are otherwise much the same as the true skeptics. The anti-truth cult's risible claims are easily debunked, disproven, and ridiculed.

False Flags - 9/11 and Oklahoma City    2 pp.
        
        There is the fact that steel-frame buildings do not collapse from fire and do so through a controlled demolition is unassailable  and the WTC was made of steel. Many architects and engineers have come out saying just that, as well as providing other corroborative evidence that the collapse of the Twin Towers was a controlled demolition. As well, there is other supportive evidence that proves 9/11 was orchestrated by the Bush Administration. The following are major points of evidence and references.
 
         There are 2 major problems that render the official account implausible.
              1. NIST implies fire-induced collapses of large steel-frame buildings are normal events but they have never occurred--every previous total collapse has been caused by a controlled demolition.
              2. The collapse had at least 11 features which would be expected if and only if explosives were used. And these are: sudden onset, straight down manner, almost free fall speed, total collapse, sliced steel, pulverization of concrete and other materials, dust clouds, horizontal ejections, demolition rings, sounds produced by explosions, and molten steel.
              "The Destruction of the WTC: Why the Official Account Cannot Be True" by DR Griffin-9/1 Review website; see also "The New Pearl Harbour: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11" (2004) by D. R. Griffin; 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions-Dr. David Ray Griffin; and Eric Douglas, RA, Dec. 2006, J. 9/11 Studies).
         Jerry Lobdill, in  "Some Physical Chemistry Aspects..." 2007, says that video documents provide the best evidence of controlled demolition and that it is clear from them that explosives were used.
         In "Revisiting 9/11/2001-Applying the Scientific Method", Dr. Steven Jones states there are  sufficient data to conclude that the collisions of jets with the 2 towers were not enough to explain the complete and rapid collapse of both towers and WTC 7 and that there is compelling evidence that the destruction of these edifices involved planted cutter charges.
         "Why the Towers Fell: 2 Theories" by Wm. Rice, professional civil engineer,  posted March 1, 2007, in the Vermont Guardian website,  explains why the official version of the collapse is totally implausible; states that structural steel-frame buildings do not collapse because of fire, that fire would not cause the steel members to melt or even lose sufficient strength, that if a structural steel building could collapse because of fire it would do so slowly, not rapidly; and that the TTs were made to withstand a Boeing 707 or 767; and  quotes  John Skilling, head structural engineer for the TTs,  as saying fires, yes, but the buildings would still be there.
         16 experts find many incorrect or contradictory statements in the NIST report concerning WTC 7 that severely undermine its veracity and usefulness and say 3 weeks for  public response is unreasonable especially as it took 3 years to do the 1000-pp. report (Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth -2008).
         In "Missing Jolt" (2009) Graeme McQueen, and Terry Szambati, say the Final Report on the Collapse of the WTC Towers by NIST is so vague it barely qualifies as an hypothesis and easily  demonstrate its falsity.
         In "Direct Evidence for Explosions" Dr. Crockett Grabbe of the  U of Iowa and Sea Lane Consulting,  claims there is proof of explosions in the WTC  visible in photographs.
         Mechanical engineer Judy Wood presents evidence the buildings were destroyed with a directed energy weapon using a static field with radio signal interference (Where Did the Towers Go?; drjudywood.com; Dr. Judy Wood Interview-You Tube; Dr. Judy Wood, evidence of breakthrough energy technology on 9/11-You Tube), which is: the buildings didn't burn up and didn't slam to the ground, but turned into dust, there was no rubble to speak of, and there were burned cars many blocks away as well as fuming car door handles. She points out the technology has existed since about 100 years and that John Hutchinson demonstrates it experimentally.   
         In "the NIST-WTC Investigations-How Real Was the Simulation?" flaws in the NIST's computer simulations are pointed out: no experimental substantiation of its conclusions, manipulation of input data, uncertainties, and discrepancies.
         Firefighters Cacchioli and Schroeder say there were explosions from bombs as do many other firefighters and civilian survivors (Arctic Beacon).
         The 9/11 Commission did not want to hear most of the firefighters; Cacchioli walked out because they twisted his words and basically put him on trial (Arctic Beacon).
         25 former US military officers have severely criticized the official account  and called for  a new investigation and include Albert Stubbline, Ronald Ray, Karen Kwiatowsky, and Robert Bowman (Conspiracy Planet, May 22, 2008).
         Pilots say it would be quite impossible for someone to fly such a plane with such precision with only a few hours of instruction.
         At least 6 ATCs made tape recordings describing the events but it was destroyed by a supervisor without anyone making a transcript of it or even listening to it, avers the Transportation Dept (New York Times, May 6, 2004).
         Boston ATC Robin Hordon says 9/11 was an inside job and that Rumsfeld and the Pentagon tracked 3 of the planes from the point of hijacking to hitting the targets. he knew people in the FAA who said intercept procedures should have been enacted as normal but obviously weren't.
        The September 11 families who fought for and gained an independent investigation (the 9/11 Commission) posed 400-plus questions, but the vast majority of these questions were completely ignored in the commission hearings and the final report.
        The membership and staff of the 9/11 Commission displayed important conflicts of interest; the families called for the resignation of Executive Director Philip Zelikow, a Bush administration member and close associate of "star witness" Condoleezza Rice, and were snubbed; commission member Max Cleland resigned, condemning the entire exercise as a "scam" and "whitewash."
        The Commission Report is notable mainly for its obvious omissions, distortions, and outright falsehoods - ignoring anything incompatible with the official story, banishing the issues to footnotes, and even dismissing the still-unresolved question of who financed 9/11 as being "of little practical significance."   
        The alleged masterminds of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohamed  and Ramzi Binalshibh, are reported to have been captured in 2002 and 2003, although one Pakistani newspaper said  Mohamed was killed in an attempted capture; they have been held at undisclosed locations and their supposed testimonies, as provided in transcript form by the government, form much of the basis for the 9/11 Commission Report (although the Commission''s request to see them in person was denied); they have not been produced nor put on trial.
        Eliot Spitzer, attorney general of New York State, snubbed pleas by New York citizens to open 9/11 as a criminal case (Justicefor911.org); Spitzer also refused to allow his employee, former 9/11 Commission staff member Dietrich Snell, to testify to Congress about his (Snell''s) role in keeping "Able Danger" entirely out of The 9/11 Commission Report.
        The 9/11 Commission and NIST both allowed the continuing cover-up of how Motorola''s faulty radios, purchased by the Giuliani administration, caused firefighter deaths at the WTC.
         NIST failed to even test for the possibility of explosives.        
        Accepting victims' compensation barred  families from pursuing discovery through litigation; those who refused compensation to pursue litigation and discovery had their cases consolidated under the same Judge Hallerstein  and as a rule dismissed.
        The official story has been questioned ,with  many of the above points were raised, by members of the US Congress, retired high-ranking officers of the US military, the three leading third-party candidates for President in the 2004 election, a member of the 9/11 Commission who resigned in protest, a former high-ranking adviser to the  Bush administration, former ministers to the German, British and Canadian governments, the commander-in-chief of the Russian air force, 100 luminaries who signed the 9/11 Truth Statement.
        Airplane black boxes were found at Ground Zero, according to 2 first responders and an unnamed NTSB official, but they were made to disappear and their existence is denied in the 9/11 Commission Report.
        US government officials consistently suppressed and destroyed evidence (like the tapes recorded by air traffic controllers who handled the New York flights).
        Whistleblowers (like Sibel Edmonds and Anthony Shaffer) were intimidated, gagged, and sanctioned.
        The White House deliberately pressured the EPA into giving false public assurances that the toxic air at Ground Zero was safe to breathe, which knowingly contributed to an as-yet unknown number of health cases and fatalities.
        The rapid and illegal scrapping of the WTC ruins at Ground Zero disposed of almost all of the structural steel indispensable to any investigation of the collapse mechanics.
        Colin Powell promised a "white paper" from the State Department to establish the authorship of the attacks by Al-Qaida. This was never forthcoming, and was instead replaced by a paper from Tony Blair, which presented only circumstantial evidence, with very few points actually relating to September 11.
        The White House thereupon attempted to appoint Henry Kissinger as the chief investigator, and acted to underfund and obstruct the 9/11 Commission.
        Bush signed National Security  Order W199 which threaten  DIA and  FBI  agents with arrest if they tried to stop Al-Qaida. This secret but leaked document has been in many periodicals including the London Guardian and Agence France Presse and also on many websites like BBC News On-Line. In January 2001, FBI deputy director John O' Neill went public saying the Bush and Clinton administrations had ordered the FBI to back off  investigation of Bin Laden and Al-Qaida. He resigned and was given the position of security chief at the WTC where he died.
        In 1996 and 1998, the Sudan twice tried to arrest Bin Laden  but Clinton ordered his release. This was reported in the LA Times,  London Times, WorldNet Daily, Village Voice, etc.
        CIA worked in tandem with Pakistan to create the Taliban (Times of India, March 7, 2001). In 1998 the Afghans offered to arrest Bin Laden but told them not to(Washington Post, Oct. 29, 2001). All the while the Bin Laden family was given satellite company deals, oil company mergers, and construction projects (Atlantean Conspiracy).
        Over 30 messages mostly from Arabs of an immenent attack were received by the NSA from May to Sept., 2001. Futhermore, warnings were received from Russian, Israeli, French, German, and British intel proir to Sept. 11 in 2001 (Atlantean Conspiracy by Eric Dubay).
         Moreover, only 14  mln. $was allocated for the investigation of 9/11, while 40 mln $was allocated for the Clinton-Lewinsky inquiry, 50 for the Columbia disaster inquiry, and 75 for the Challenger disaster inquest (Atlantean Conspiracy). And there was a delay of 7 days before the inquiry started concerning the Challenger, 7 days also regardiing the JFK assassination, and 9 days for Pearl Harbour, but 411 days for 9/11 (Atlantean Conspiracy ).
          Massive military exercises on that day were intentionally staged to confuse civil defenses (Dr. Robert Bowman); Dick Cheney headed those exercises and the JCS Chairman changed the protocol leaving commanders in the field unable to respond in any meaningful way.
         Pres. Bush is not moved to a new and secured location immediately  which would be normal procedure.
         The FBI's Rex Tomb admited there is no hard evidence Bin Laden was connected to 9/11 and he was never on their list related to 9/11.
         4 of the supposed hijackers had their identities stolen and visa were supplied to them by the CIA.
        Popular Mechanics, published by the Hearst Corp., did an article falsely claiming to debunk 9/11 truth  has itself been debunked by  researchers as containing numerous distortions and flawed conclusions. The story hypocritically smeared independent researchers as extremists who peddle fantasies and make poisonous claims but it is the US government that are not only the extremists, peddle fantasies, and make poisonous claims but are, in fact, criminals of the most heinous kind.  But here's the kicker: American Free Press revealed that Benjamin Chertoff, the one who authored the article, is related to Michael Chertoff, the new  Homeland Security Minister (secretary is a misnomer). Furthermore,  Victor Ganzi is head of Hearst (since June, 2002) and is also a member of BENS which evaluated the CIA's  tech  development enterprise In-Q-Tel and received the CIA Seal Medallion in Oct. 2002 (bens.org). The Popular Mechanics article is out and out blatant propaganda identical to the kind used by tyranies. We can see, on You Tube, James Meigs, Popular Mechanics editor,  and Glenn Beck doing mindless propaganda based on the article.
         Like the attack on Pearl Harbour, which we now know to have been maneuvered by the Roosevelt regime to provide impetus to declare war on Japan (President Roosevelt and the Coming of the War 1941: a Study in Appearances and Realities, 1948, by Charles Beard;  The Final Secret of Pearl Harbor: the Washington Background of the Pearl Harbor Attack, 1947, by Robert "Fuzzy" Theobald, former USN rear-admiral; Infamy: Pearl Harbor and Its Aftermath, 1982, by John Toland, a dean of American war historians; Day of Deceit: the Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor, 1999, by  Robert Stinnett, former  American sailor who earned ten battle stars and a Presidential Unit Citation), 9/11 was orchestrated by the Bush administration to provide impetus for the invasion of Iraq.
        Regarding the  bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995 which caused nearly 2000 casualties. the following points must be emphasized:
        
         20 witnesses saw BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) agents were already on the scene hiding out and preparing to pounce  on the operation to make themselves look like heroes
         the atrocity was used as an exccusse by Janet Reno to expamd federal control over local police and merge military and police in new training programs
         Martin Keating, brother of Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating, wrote a novel in 1993 called Final Jihad iin which a Tom McVeigh bombs an Oklahoma City federal building and was dedicated to the Knights of the Secret Circle (KFOR  TV and the News Channel)
         Controlled Demolitions was the company that handled the rubble in both the Oklahoma City and WTC tragedies (Order Out of Chaos by P.J. Watson)
         Gene Corley was hired to whitewash both Oklahoma City and Waco  (Order Out of Chaos by P.J. Watson).

        Operation Northwoods was a  false-flag proposal in '62 by the Joint Chiefs of Staff under JCS Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer and sent to the Defense Minister,  calling for the CIA or other operatives to carry out urban guerrilla warfare in the U.S. followed by the planting of phony evidence  blaming  Cuba in order to create public support for a war against that country. It was nixed by President Kennedy. The plan was made public by the JFK Assassination Review Board in '97 (Operation Northwoods-Wikipedia).
 
Aurora, Col.
 
        There is evidence that the alleged perpetrator, James Holmes, was drugged and mind controlled and used as a patsy (The James Holmes Conspiracy by Mark Howitt on You Tube; lawyerherald.com), which is as follows:
        
        James Holmes, the alleged perpetrator, promising graduate student, bright, humourous, and not a loner, suddenly and inexplicably changes 4 months before the incident
        he does not remember the events at the Century 16 movey house (Sound familiar? This was the same with Sirhan, and is the same with amok syndrome; could it be that amok syndrome is also a drug-induced psychosis? Probably) 
        he rigged his apartment with explosives yet tells the police about it
        he waited  for the police to arrest him
        a simulated exercise of the incident is done at Parker Medical School on the same day, which indicates advance knowledge
        witnesses say there were tear gas canisters thrown from 2 different directions and that there was another shooter
        police audio suggests there was another shooter
        he received a phone call in the movey house and there would be a record of it, but no such record was ever mentioned by the authorities
        the question of security cameras was never addressed by the authorities; probably they existed and the tapes would shed light on the matter
        a notebook supposedly written by the accused describing the attack may have been planted by the authorities post facto
        a witness filed a testimony which implicates the sheriff, prosecutor, a billionaire, and secret societies; it was thrown out by the judge on the basis that it was fraudulent (was this claim of fraud even substantiated and would not at least the sheriff and the secret societies be involved if there was a conspiracy?)
        the sophisticated, complex, elaborate, and expensive equipment he rigged his apartment with, and the bullet proof vest, hard to get for a civilian,  indicate provision by specialists 
        Arlene Holmes, mother of the accused, did not say "you have the right person" in refering to her son when she was questioned by the police
        a long-time friend and neighbour, Anthony Mai, believes Holmes was set up 
 
        Also, victims are launching a class action suit against Century 16 for providing lax security. There is also the rumour that Robert Holmes, father of the accused, was set to testify in the Libor scandal, involving  financial criminality, and that Peter Lanza, father of the alleged perpetrator at Sandy Hook in Newtown, was also, but this might be only a rumour. The trial of James Holmes is on-going. 
         There is obviously a reactionary element in society,  a lunatic fringe, which is  characterized by crank skepticism,  which uses compulsive mud-slinging and compulsive lieing,  believes  that conspiracies can't happen, that everything is paranoia,  that the truth, the facts, and the evidence don't matter, have no concept of concern, awareness, nor ethics, are totally subjective, have a minimal ability to reason, and oppose reason and logic. It claims  that any conspiracy thesis,  no matter how plausible and well-founded, is necessarily wrong simply because it is a conspiracy thesis, not considering the evidence as to whether or not there is  a conspiracy. Compulsive mud-slinging and compulsive lieing are symptoms of psychopathy and the beliefs that conspiracies can't happen and that everything is paranoia are psychotic delusions.
         They are hypocrites in more ways than one because they do projection (the pot calling the kettle black), which is also a psychopathic symptom, pretend to be for truth when they seek to suppress it or don't consider it, pretend to be rational and logical when they are the exact opposite, and believe in conspiracies themselves like the plot to make the JFK assassination look like a conspiracy that would have to exist if there was no conspiracy behind the asassination,  the supposed plot to perpetrate a hoax at Roswell or to cover up some secret government project, and the conspiracy behind 9/11 but pretending, even given the idea  that it was the Arabs behind it, that there was no conspiracy.  And the major point is not that there was a conspiracy but that ther was a serious crime or crimes committed beyond any conspiracy.       
        Contrary to the lunatic fringe's nonsensical claims it takes only 2 to make a conspiracy and they are tried in courts on a frequent basis and conspiracy is part of the Criminal Code.  The lunatic fringe would have us believe that the co-conspirators caught and executed in the Lincoln assassination were actually optical illusions, that the there was only 1 person who planned and carried out 9/11, and that the Gunpowder Plot never happened. Often it is a question of what kind of conspiracy.  In the Roswell incident the question is if there was a conspiracy to cover-up  a government accident or a craft from space. In 9/11 it is whether there was an Arab conspiracy or one by the American government. 
         The pseudo-skeptics in the anti-truth movement, i.e., the Obscurantists, which may be the majority and constitute another lunatic fringe,  much like in the UFO debate where many "skeptics" are actually cover-up agents or cover-up supporters, say the same things as the crank skeptics except that they know full well there is a conspiracy and obviously do the propaganda to protect the criminal groups, but are otherwise much the same as the true skeptics.
         The anti-truth cult's risible claims are easily debunked, disproven, and ridiculed.

Summary
Although there is some contrary evidence for the genetic basis of race, there is none for it as a social construct as race is necessarily biological in humans as well as lower animals. Genetic classifications are not foolproof but  agree well with morphological ones and correspond largely to geography and  linguistic families. Morphological and chemical synapomorphies can be identified for the various races. There is no truth at all to the claim that the concept of race was invented in the last few centuries since it was known since antiquity. Racial classification could be said to contradict racism and racialism since many of the groups considered inferior are more derived than the groups considered superior. As well, probably most present day racial taxonomists are egalitarian. Race-intelligence correlation is as counter-intuitive, goes as much against common sense, and is as much pseudoscience as the no-race contention. Even if there was no genetic basis to race, racial classification would still be very useful and probably even necessary in both anthropology and medicine. But since the word "race" has negative connotations and  is used ambiguously to denote both subspecies and lower ranks, the word "variety" could be used instead. And a comprehensive, phyogenetic classification is presented.

The notion that there is more genetic variation in any 2 individuals in a population than between different populations, a result found frequently even with clustering,  is asserted false by one of Britain’s most distinguished geneticists, A.F.W. Edwards,  because more loci are not taken into account (Edwards, A.W.F. 2003. Human genetic diversity: Lewontin's fallacy. BioEssays 25:798–801,  as quoted in Lewontin's Fallacy-Wikipedia). Lewontin  doesn't have much credibility since, not surprisingly, he also  denies nature. Edwards is not only a geneticist but also a statistician and evolutionary biologist, and is Life Fellow of Gonville and Caius College and retired Professor of Biometry at the University of Cambridge, holds both an ScD and LittD, and received the Telesio-Galilei Academy Award in 2011 for Biology. Risch et al (Categorization of humans in biomedical research: genes, race, and disease, Gen. Biol. 3: 1-12, 2002) state, "Two Caucasians are more similar to each other genetically than a Caucasian and an Asian."  Risch is the Lamond Family Foundation Distinguished Professor in Human Genetics,  Director of the Institute for Human Genetics, and Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UCSF. He is also recipient of the Curt Stern Award from the Am. Soc. for Hum. Gen.

Bamshad et al in 2004, using 377 microsatellite loci, found more similarity between groups than within groups, so  Witherspoon et al (Genetic similarities within and between human populations, Genetics 176: 351-9, 2007) investigated and, measuring the misclassification rate using trait values, the centroid (genetic average of a population) misclassification rate, and the dissimilarity between individuals (dissimilarity fraction), found that 2 persons can be more genetically similar to each other than to the typical genetic type of their respective populations and still be correctly assigned to their respective populations. They note that genetic analyses make use of aggregate properties of populations while pairwise distances used to compute the dissimilarity fraction make no use of population-level information and are strongly affected by the high level of within-group variation, which accounts for the difference between the dissimilarity fraction and the classification results. And they point out, as Edwards does, that the more loci are used the less the dissmilarity fraction. With  1000 loci, for example, the dissmilarity fraction is c. 10%, and with 1000s of loci it would be 0 when people are sampled across geographically separated populations. If everyone was sampled, however, the dissmilarity fraction would increase, as admixed and closely related populations would be included. This, however, is only hypothetical and would not negate genetic relatedness. Some make the highly dubious suggestion that a highly accurate classification of individuals from continuously sampled populations might not be possible, but Witherspoon et al point out that those studies lack the statistical power required to address that question and they refer to Rosenberg et al (loc. cit.).

Numerous genetic studies have corroborated the reality of race, e.g.:

          Ottenberg in 1925 was the 1st to do a taxonomy based on blood group genes, Lahovary also did one in '49, and Weiner in '46 and '48. Wiener used the ABO, MN, and Rh systems and distinguished the 3 usual groups, Caucasoids, Negroids, and Mongoloids, with the Mongoloids divided into 3 subgroups: Asiatic, Pacific Islands and Australia, and Amerinds and Eskimos. Caucasoids had A2 at 20-25%, in Negroids it was relatively high, and in Mongoloids it was almost absent. In the 1st 2 groups and the 1st subgroup M was slightly higher than N, in the 2nd subgroup N was much higher than M, and in the 3rd subgroup M was much higher than N. In the 1st group Rh- was highest, in the 2nd it was moderate, and in the 3rd it was rare(Anthropology, Sharma and Kumar);     
        the William Boyd study  (Genetics and the Human Race, Science 140: 1057-64, 1963) based on serology genes found 6 groups (Africans, Europeans,  Asian-Pacific, Dravidians (Melano-Hindus),  Australian aborigines, and Amerinds) and showed that Africans have high Ro, V, Pi, and Fy, Europeans have high Rh-, Rh', and A2, and low B, Asians, Polynesians, and Australian aborigines have high A1, Indonesians (in the Pacific group) have high A and B, and Amerinds have mostly O (he also did 2 earlier classifications, in '50 and and '58 (Sharma and Kumar, loc. cit.));
         in the Kidd-Diego blood group system, the Diego factor is unique to Mongoloids, especially Amerinds;
        Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza, L.L., Barrai, A.W.F. Edwards (Analysis of Human Evolution Under Random Genetic Drift, 1964, CSHS, 29: 9-200), which has an Afro-European + Asian dichotomy;
       Cavalli-Sforza et al (Reconstruction of human evolution: Bringing together genetic, archaeological, and linguistic data. Proc. NSA USA 85: 6002-06, 1988; History and Geography of Human Genes, 1992, Princeton U. Press), which has an African+(Caucasian+(Eurasian+W. Asiatic)) result;

         Nei and Roychoudhury. 1982. Genetic relationship and evolution of human races. Evol. Biol. 14: 1-59;
         Nei and Roychoudhury (Evolutionary relationships on a global scale, 1991, Mol. Biol. Evol. 10: 483-95), which corroborates the usual Negroid-Eurasian (the latter Caucasoid and Mongoloid) dichotomy; 
        Wilson et al in 2001, based on an analysis of 40 microsatellite loci and 354 individuals, found 4 natural clusters
 (Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid, and New Guinean)(Lewontin's Fallacy-Wikipedia);
        Noah Rosenberg et al (Genetic structure of human populations, Science 298: 2381-5, 2002 (on-line)) found 5 geographically matching clusters (Africans, Eurasians, E. Asians, Oceanians, and native Americans) based on over 1000 individuals and 52 populations, and in a follow-up study (Clines, Clusters, and the Effect of Study Design on the Inference of Human Population Studies, PLoS Genetics 1: e70, 2002) with an expanded data set of 993 markers (783 microsatelites and 210 insertion/deletion polymorphisms) found that people can be assigned to specific clusters with a high degree of accuracy, corroborated their earlier study, and that clusters do not arise from an artifact of sampling scheme.
         
And race largely corresponds to morphology  and language, as well as chemistry,  geography,  and DNA. In morphology and chemistry (Anthropologie Physique, H-V Vallois, in Ethnologie Générale, Jean Poirier, ed., 1968, Gallimard, in Encyclopédie de la Pléiade;  Anthropologie Physique, Pierre Morel, PUF; unless otherwise indicated) are such  traits as:
          rectilinear (straight) hair (in whites and yellows),  coarse, straight hair of large diameter in the same 2 groups, small diameter hair in Caucasians, wavy hair in most Leucoderms (whites), and whirled hair  in black Africans (except Ethiopians), Negritos,  and Melanesians (hair form is an important feature and has been recognized for a long time as Bory de St. Vincent in 1827, who we encounter in my Historical Overview in empirebiota.info, proposed dividing races into 2 groups, the Leiotrichs (Lissotrichs)(with rectilinear hair: Xanthoderms and some Leucoderms) and Ulotrichs (with whirled hair: the Melanoderms; the various states of the trait are as follows: leiotrichous (stretched, smooth, flat wavy), cymotrichous (broad wavy, narrow wavy, loosely curled, tightly curled (frizzly), and 4 states of ulotrichous);
         brow ridges: largest in Australian aborigines, 2nd largest in Caucasians, 3rd largest in Negroids, absent or minimal in Mongoloids (Caroline Wilkenson, 2004, in Australoid race-Wikipedia);

         eye colour (black Africans and Melanesians have black or dark brown eyes, Indians and Xanthoderms usually have dark brown or brown eyes but can be light brown, and Leucoderms usually have brown, green, grey, or blue eyes);
         orbital index: chemeconch in native Australians and Melanesians, mesoconch in Europeans and black Africans, and hypsiconch in yellows;

         metopism (a cranial feature) has a frequency of 2% in black Africans and Oceanians, 3 % in Indians, 5% in Asiatics, and 7-8% in Europeans;
        brain weight is lower in Australoids and Negroids, while it is higher in Caucasoids and Mongoloids;
        high cheek bones, which is characteristic of Mongoloids, but also occurs notably in the Khoi-San and are probably an ancestral feature;
        forehead flat or retreating in most, bulbous in Guineans and Negrilloes (Haddon, 1909);
         gnathic index: prognathism is dominant in black Africans and Melanesians, mesognathism in Southern Asians, and orthognathism in Europeans;
         mandibular index:  dolichognathious in blacks and whites, mesognathous in yellows
         skeletal nasal index, which is platyrhine in Melanoderms, leptorhine and mesorhine in Leucoderms, and mesorhine in Xanthoderms
          nasal index, which is  platyrhine in Melanoderms, some SE Asians, and some Oceanians,  leptorhine in Caucasians and mesorhine in North Africans, Asians and Amerinds;

         sacrum concavity: low in blacks, high in whites and yellows
         olecranial perforation in humerus: often present in blacks, sometimes present in yellows, rarely present in whites
         the Mongolian spot (which is present at birth and lasts several years) is universal or very common (75-100% depending on the subgroup) in  Mongoloids (in Amerinds and Eskimos as well as Asians), lasts only a few days in blacks where it is much less common (40-80% in black Africans, 30-50% in Melano-Hindus), and is practically absent in Europeans (only 1-2%);

It is pointed out by Michael Woodley (Is Homo sapiens polytypic? Human taxonomic diversity and its implications. 2010. Med. Hypoth. 74: 195-20) that an old morphological rule to determine  race is the 75% rule, which holds that if 75% of the members of a given population can be grouped by eye then they constitute a subspecies/race  (Amadon D. 1949. The seventy-five percent rule for subspecies. Condor 51: 251–8). Although there is debate about its utility today it has been observed that individual humans can accurately be grouped based on race more than 75% of  the time, which contrasts sharply with chimpanzees whose 4 recognized subspecies are extremely difficult to differentiate through visual inspection. It has also been noted that morphological differences among humans are not only on average about equal to the distances among species within other genera of mammals (with the exception of populations generated under domestication pressures, such as breeds of dog) but are typically more strongly marked than in other animals (Woodley, loc. cit.; Genetic Reality of Race-rafonda.com).

It should be noted that brain and cranial differences are dependent largely on height and weight,  Mesolithic and Neolithic Man was brachycephalic even though this is a derived state (dolichocephaly being ancestral, occuring previously in the Paleolithic), the Neanderthals had a brain larger than Homo sapiens sapiens, the 3 types of cephalic index, dolichocephaly, mesocephaly, and brachycephaly,  occur in all 3 major races (Negroid, Caucasoid, and Mongoloid), and there is no correlation between these differences and intelligence.

Although intelligence is certainly inherited, it can be influenced by environmental factors especially socio-economic ones. When these improve so do IQs. Dickens, of the Brookings Institute, and Flynn, of Otagao U. in NZ, have analyzed 30 years (from 1972-2002) of IQ tests and found an increase in all groups but a faster increase among blacks. Also, American blacks have a higher IQ than African blacks as conditions in Africa are the poorest in the world. Moreover, it is found that, around the world, lower status white groups have lower IQs than higher status white groups (see Inequality by Design, 1996, by Claude Fischer).

The Paul Nichols and Elving Anderson research study of 1973 (Intellectual performance, race, and socioeconomic status, Biodemography and Social Biology 20: 367-74 (on-line since 2010), as cited in Population Biology, Chp. 8, Sect. IV,  Phillip Hedrick, 1984, Jones and Bartlett) compared black and white IQs in the same SES (socioeconomic status), a high SES in Boston and a low one in Baltimore and Phily, using an SES index referring to parental occupation, education, and income data. The point spread in both favoured whites but by only 4 points, the mean scores being  104-100 for Boston and 95-91 for Baltimore-Phily.

The KABC intelligence test (Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children), which corrects for ethnic differences and factors in educational level  of the mother obtains the following results, which also show only negligible differences:

                        Afro-American            100
                        Asian American           103
                        Caucasian                   101
                        Hispanic                       95                 
                        Native American           97

Also, adoption research has shown no significant difference in intelligence between whites and blacks (Elsie Moore, 1986, Family conditioning and the IQ test performance  of traditionally and transracially adopted Black children, Developmental Psychology 22: 317-26). Although there is research presenting  contrary evidence, the Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study of 1976,  there are weaknesses in it as pointed out by Nisbett.

As well, if there was a race-intelligence correlation, one would expect that blacks with higher-proportion of white ancestry would have higher IQs, but several studies have shown no significant difference exists, e.g.,  in the Tizard investigation mixed race children in England had slightly higher IQs than their white peers (Barbara Tizard et al, 1972, Environmental effects on language development, Child Development 43: 337-58). Another, which involved illegitimate offspring of American  servicemen in WW2,  found no overall difference in average IQ (K. Eyferth, 1961, Leistugern verscheidener Gruppen von Besatzundkindern Hamburg-Wechsler Itntelligenztest fur Kinder (HAWK) Archiv fur die gesamte Psychologie 113: 222-41).

The following is a comprehensive, phylogenetic taxonomy that combines morphological, genetic, and chemical data. Names and ranks are always sorely lacking in genetic classifications so I have provided them. Since the word "race" has negative connotations and  is used ambiguously to denote both subspecies and lower ranks, I use the word "variety" instead. This corresponds with the botanical term "varietas".   Abbreviations: sp.=species, var.=variety,  hpr=hyper, sp=super, sb=sub, inf=infra, mc=micro, nn=nano.

It is theorized that there were 5 populations in Africa in what is conventionally considered prehistory and that they corresponded to 4 linguistic families (The Atlas of Languages, Comrie et al, 2003, Facts On File). The North Africans (Afro-Asiatic (formerly Hamito-Semitic)), in Ethiopia and the northern Sahara; the Nilotics (Nilo-Saharan), just west of Abyssinia; the West Africans (Niger-Congo), in the Gulf of Guinea area; the Negrilloes, in the Congo River Basin in Central Africa and the Khoi-San, occupying eastern and southern Africa (Coon maintained they originated in N. Africa). Subsequently, the expansion of the West Africans into central, east, and southern Africa largely replaced the Negrilloes and Khoi-San who now have only small populations, with the Negrilloes now speaking Benue-Congo languages (Bantu). 

Native tradition, however,  has it that the Bantu  migrated from the Upper Nile (Nilotic country) into central and SE Africa but failed to conquer the SW  occupied by the Khoi-San when the 1st Europeans arrived at the Cape (Language in the Modern World, Simeon Potter, 1963, Pelican). Also, the head shape of the Sudanese and  Guinean stocks are the same, and there is correlation between  the Sudanese-Guinean  language family and the Sudanese-Guinean clade and between the Bantu clade and  the Bantu (Benue-Congo) language family. Vallois separates out the Sudanese from the Guineans, but it is possible the Sudanese-Guinean group is really the Guinean (West African) group and the Sudanese are really the Nilotic group. In any case, the Sudanese stock inhabits savannahs between the Sahara and the equatorial forests, an west-east area nearly across all Africa,  was called the Sudan in the 17 and 1800s (Natl. Geog. Almanac of World History, Patricia Daniels and Stephen Hyslop, p. 262, 2003). The Sudanese-Guinean  language group is no longer recognized and included parts of the Nilo-Saharan,   Niger-Congo, and  Chadic groups, its major languages being Nubian (Nilo-Saharan); Efek, Ewe, Ibo, Mande, Mandingo, Twi,  Yoruba (West African tongues of Niger-Congo); and Hausa (Chadic) (Potter, loc. cit.), but there is a possibility that Nilo-Saharan is related to Niger-Congo (Merritt Ruhlen, A Guide to the World's Languages, Vol. 1 (Classification), 1991, Stanford U. Press). It should be noted also that the Hamitic languages (including Ancient Egytian, Coptic, Cushitic, Chadic, and Berber) were eventually considered a convenience group because of the research of Greenberg, who came up with the name of "Afro-Asiatic".
 
My circumscription of Congoids is the same as Vallois's Mélano-Africaine race, which excludes Ethiopians and Negrilloes, so is a sensu strictu version of Carleton Coon's (The Living Races of Man, 1965, Borzoi Books), who included them. It is possible, however, that the Negrilloes belong with the Congoids because of the  bulbous forehead. The Khoi-San is considered more recent than the Congoids by Vallois, but Coon regards them as older, and  genetic evidence does place them as the oldest, having haplogroup A, which is ancestral. They might be sister group to all other groups since they might be so linguistically, as all the other language groups, except possibly Yeneseian, form a unit (Merritt Ruhlen, loc. cit).
 
The Ethiopians are a heterogeneous and mixed Caucasoid-Negroid group, with the most Negroid being the Wattas, hippo hunters of S. Ethiopia and Somalia; the next most Negroid, the sedentary peoples of western Ethiopia, who speak C. Cushitic languages; and the least Negroid,  the highland Oromoid-Ahmaroid and desert-dwelling Somali-Dankali, who are essentially Caucasian in body build and facial features and consider themselves Caucasian (Coon).  Most in these 4 groups have curly or frizzly hair, about 30% of the Somali-Dankali  have wavy hair, and wooly hair is rare. The latter 2 groups are a mixture of Arabian or Lower Egyptian invaders with Negroid Ethiopians, mostly the former (Vallois, Les Races Humaines, 1944, 1948, PUF; Coon),  so belong in the SW Asian  or Mediterranean group. The black Ethiopians are extended in East Africa as 3 mixed groups, the Massai, Nandi, and Suk, who are sometimes collectively called semi-Hamites (Vallois, 1948). The Fula in West Africa are a mixture of Ethiopians, Ulotrichians, and mostly Arabs (Vallois, 1948).

There is possibly a kinship between Australoids and Negroids. C. M. Curr, a pastoralist from Victoria, Australia, postulated this very relationship in his The Australian Race (4 vols.) in 1886 (An Introduction to Aboriginal Societies, W. H. Edwards, 1988, Social Science Press, on-line). In Australoids, or the native Australians at least, most of the features are similar to most Negroids--dolichocephaly, prognathism, black skin, eyes, and hair, negative chin, tallness. And everted lips occur in some Australian aborigines (Coon, loc. cit., p. 174). And because of these features and other ancestral ones (largest brow ridge, evasive forehead) it was considered by Vallois as the most ancestral grand-race,  and it is considered as being especially different from all  other groups. And a recent genetic study indicates what was to become the Australoid stock came out of Africa to settle in India (forming the Vedda (in Ceylon)-Senoi (in the Malacca Peninsula or Malay) branch there) and then in Australia (An Aboriginal Australian Genome Reveals Separate Human Dispersals into Asia, Science: 334: 94-98, Morten Rasmussen et al, 2011). 

Australoids clustering  with the Mongoloids in Nei and Roydhouchury and  Cavalli-Sforza results and blood groups,  having cymotrichy as in Indonesians and Polynesians, a possible kinship between the Australian  and  Indo-Pacific languages (Joseph Greenberg (The Indo-Pacific Hypothesis, CTIL 8, 1971) and Stephen Wurm (Papuan Languages in Oceania, 1982) as cited in Ruhlen ( loc. cit.)).  resemblances with certain other stocks (pygmies, Melanesians) are probably due to  admixtures (Coon, loc. cit.).  The Australoids having evolved from Mongoloids is not very plausible as it would be through  many reversals so wouldn't be very likely nor parsimonious. In other words, a position at the top of the Mongoloid tree or at the base, for that matter, would not be as plausible as the out-of-Africa theory.

The exact position of the Australoids in Melanoderms is uncertain as it is possible that, as circumscribed by some, that is, including also the Negrito-Melanesian stock, they form a natural group, and would belong in Ulotrichi (with ulotrichy lost in  Australoids sensu stricto). A.W. Howitt, on the basis of hair and other physical features, suggested the Tasmanians  were related  to the Negritoes and the Tasmanians are related to the native Australians. Joseph Birdsell in the '30s also proposed a Negrito kinship to the Tasmanians, this in the 1st of 3 waves of migration, the 2nd resulting in the Murrayans from the Ainu,  and  the 3rd resulting in the Carpentarians, typical aborigines, from the Vedda. Birdsell's theory is generally rejected nowadays (Edwards, loc .cit.), but this may not mean very much.  Also, it is possible the Australoids (or the Capoids) are the sister group to all the other groups so the taxonomy would be as follows (mg=mega):

infsp. Australoid (origin in Africa)
infsp. Metafro-Eurasian
    mgvar. Capoid
    mgvar. NeoAfroEurasian
        hprvar. Negroid s.s.
            spvar. Ulotrichi
            spvar. Ethiopian
        hprvar. Caucasian-Mongoloid

Most of the features of Negritoes link them phylogenetically to black Africans, including low pilosity, black skin,  ulotrichy, the everted lower lip in the Aeta, and cranial morphology (e.g., W.W. Howells' craniometric dendrogram, which goes: (Africans+ Andaman Islanders)+Australoids (Mongoloids-Wikipedia)). Genetic evidence places all the Onge of Little Andaman and all but 2 of the Great Andamanese in the mtDNA haplogroup M, found in East Africa, East Asia, and South Asia, which corroborates the African descent of the Negritoes, being at least part of a migration originating in E. Africa about 60,000 years ago, and  theorized to have followed a coastal route through India and into SE Asia, sometimes referred to as the Great Coastal Migration (Negrito-Wikipedia). Other genetic and morphological evidence and blood groups that indicate an Asian origin are probably due to admixture.
 
The Ainu-Jomon is placed with Caucasians as they have mostly Caucasian features; genetic findings placing the Ainu with Mongoloids is certainly erroneous and probably due to admixtures. The Ainu-as-Caucasian theory is that the Ainu were an Upper Paleolithic stock occupying Europe but migrated to Asia and especially Japan (Vallois; Coon). The Jomon are very similar to the Ainu and are thought to be related. The former existed in Japan from 14,000 BC-300 BC. And legends of the Ainu relate that they lived in Japan about 100, 000 years before the Children of the Sun (Sjöberg, Katarina V. 1993. The Return of the Ainu: Cultural Mobilization and the Practice of Ethnicity in Japan. Studies in Anthropology and History 9. Harwood Academicas cited in  Ainu people-Wikipedia). Eickstedt, Vallois, and Coon and probably many others also placed them with Caucasians.  Also, it has been postulated that there was a 2nd wave of migration to the Americas from Asia and that it was Ainu, and there was admixture which  gave the Caucasian features of many North American natives (Pre-Siberian Human Migration to the Americas-Archeolog-traumwerk.stanford.edu; the Ainu and Kennewick Man, '08 -cryptomundo.com). The native American clade might be better placed with the Ural-Mongolian as this is possibly the specific stock they derived from and there is genetic data in support of this (Cavalli-Sforza, '88).

The real existence of the Turanians, a hypothesized group occupying Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Kazikhistan, is uncertain as they are considered by some as an artificial synthesis of various descriptions. They would be  a hybrid white-yellow stock and transition group  and are placed either in Mongoloids or Caucasians but have more of the latter features and would go in the Alpinoid variety.

Races are not particular to humans as they exist in many other animal species (Geographic Races in Zoology, Bernhard Rensch, 1964-unesdoc.unesco.org). They were recognized in most birds and diurnal butterflies  beginning in the early 20th century by Kleinschmidt, Hartert, Jordan, and others, and that in many other  animal classes and orders most species show such geographic variation was recognized by Rensch since the '20s and Mayr since the '40s. For example, the number of recognized extant subspecies/races in field chimps is 4, the African buffalo has 5, leopards 8-18, jaguars 9, pumas 6, Canadian lynx 3, gray wolf 37, African wild dog 5, coyote 19 (Woodley, loc. cit.).  Those species, in other words, are  polytypic. Race, however, is equated with subspecies but we are a subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens, and is also used for below subspecies ranks. If leopards have 8 races (or varieties) then they  have 2 subspecies and 4 supervarieties.

Moreover, race is shown to be correlated also to language by the studies of Cavalli-Sforza (loc. cit., 1988). Strangely, Cavalli-Sforza  contradicts his own results, taking a no-race position. As well, race correlates with health disparities (Risch, loc. cit., Risch, 2006).

The cladistic concept of race has been promoted by philosopher Robin Andreasen  (A new perspective on the race debate, 1998, Brit. J. of the Phil. of Sci. 49: 199-225; The Cladistic Race Concept: a Defense, 2004, Biol. Phil.19: 425-42)(both on-line)). She points out the phylogenetic analyses particularly of Nei and Cavalli-Sforza. And what is sorely lacking is a cladistic analysis of morphology, which would probably corroborate the genetic taxonomies in large part, which are not foolproof, are not superior to morphological or chemical phylogenies, shouldn't be used exclusively, and can be considered valid only if corroborated by morphology and chemistry.

Admittedly, in a cladistic analysis of human morphology and chemistry, if it finds the 3 major races to be monophyletic (each having a single origin) as it probably would, most of the features would be uninformative as both the ancestral state and derived state in most features occur in all 3 of the major races (this, however, being probably due to frequent interbreeding), and there are only a few unique synapomorphies (shared derived states) to distinguish the races, but  there are some sound clades at higher taxonomic levels which also have few synapomorphies. Unique synapomorphies would be ulotrichy, which distinguishes Ulotrichi, and which I consider derived because it is more complex than leiotrichy and occurs rarely in lower animals, and is uncommon in humans; everted lips (in Congoids and some Australians (due to crossbreeding?), and perhaps in Khoi-San (due to crossbreeding? (also present in Soussi Berbers but this is probably because of cross-breeding))(Coon, Vallois, Haddon; the everted lower lip of the Aeta (Haddon, 1909) might indicate kinship also); and the Diego factor, high cheekbones, and Mongolid eye (in Mongoloids)(the last 2 characteristics due to hypertrophies and admixtures).

And a  typological approach  like  that for personality in psychology, based on frequencies of occurences for morphology instead of simple absence and presence as in cladistics, shows a definite pattern that agrees with the other results. Using the data above where there are 114 states in 40 traits, Mongoloid-Caucasoids  are dominant in 21 states, Caucasoids in 18,  Mongoloids in 14, Negroids (sensu strictu) in 13, 9 in Melanoderms (in many of the traits it is not specified if "black" includes also Australoids so if it does there would be many more than 9, but most of these states are ancestral so they wouldn't be counted in a cladistic analysis), 3 for a Mongoloid-Negroid grouping, and 1 for Australoids s.l., with 8 states being uninformative. And there are many other traits, perhaps over 100 major ones in all.

No-race proponents will argue that because the traits are mostly polymorphic (occur in various frequencies) or clinal (occur in gradients over geography) race does not exist, but these factors are normal and are to be expected-- they only mean  race is no exception to the rule -- there is  a continuum in everything.

That race is a cultural construct  is a ludicrous idea because it's based  on the fact that a few different cultures have different ideas about race. An example given is the Brazilian view, based on  appearance, and the American, based on descent. In the former,  children from the same family can be classified into 3 or 4 different tipos. In the latter, if 1 of the parents is classified as black than he or she will also. So in the American perspective mixed races are overlooked, and in the Brazilian there is no systematic basis for the tipos.  These cultural perspectives are not scientific, but they are nonetheless based on biology (physical appearance and descent). 

Another example is the Hispanic group as a separate race, which  is artificial. The Universal Almanac 1993 states it does not compose a cohesive, uniform population group, as it is in actual fact, in the Americas, mostly a mixture of mestizos (mixed race of whites and natives; about 1/3 to about 40%) and whites (53%) (US Census Bureau, 2010). And the Time Almanac 2001, for the US entry says, "Persons of Hispanic origin can be of any race." So this group, which designates anyone who speaks Spanish, is erroneously considered a race and is erroneously considered non-white.

The fact that there are  different cultures that have different ideas about race can't be taken as evidence that there is no race because, again, this is normal and is to be expected and simply means there are the inevitable differences in point of view between cultures on many topics, and race is no exception. What anthroplogists who say race is a cultural construct are doing  is irresponsible, incoherent, and pseudoscientific, as they leave out the cross-cultural scientific basis for biological race, which is independent of cultural views, in other words, it  has nothing to do with any unscientific, cultural perspectives.

Furthermore, research using self-identified race/ethnicity (SIRE) tests result mostly in matches between  conventional/ traditional racial groupings and genetic clusters (Risch, loc. cit.; Tang, Hua, et al, 2005, Genetic Structure, Self-Identified Race/Ethnicity, and Confounding in Case-Control Association Studies, Am J Hum Genet. 76: 268–275 (on-line)).
 
Still another false argument is that 99.9% of human genes are identical. Research done by a team headed by Michael Wigler at Cold Springs Harbour sampled DNA from 20 people from around the world. They detected 76 major differences known as copy number polymorphisms, which means that some sections of genetic code are repeated, but the numbers of repetitions vary among people. They  found these changes affected the code for 70 genes.  A team at Harvard headed by Scherer reached similar findings so the 2 groups combined their data and reached the same conclusion. (Genetic Reality of Race-rafonda).

There is also the suggestion that the gene cluster results might not be valid because different methodologies are used, but these different methodologies come up with the same basic results. There is as well the claim that only microsatellites are used but other markers are used as in the Rosenberg study. Another false argument used against the biological reality of race is that the definition is unclear. But, obviously, it is clear, and that definition goes: a population or group of populations  with common descent (a distinct evolutionary lineage), phenotypically and genotypically similar, with 1 or more synapomorphies, inhabiting a geographic subdivision,  and which therefore is or represents a taxonomic rank /level (subspecies or below).

Yet another false argument is  that the concept of race was invented in the 1600s (the word "race" was coined in that century, and the classification done by François Bernier in 1684, considered to be the 1st comprehensive one (Anthroplogy, Sharma and Kumar, 1997, Atlantic (on-line); Race (historical definitions)-Wikipedia)) or 1700s (human races were recognized in that century by Linneus, Leclerc (Comte de Buffon), Kant, Esper, Gurtanner, and others). But any contact between Europeans, Far Easterners, and/or black Africans any time previous to that would certainly have resulted in a concept of what we now call race or the equivalent. They wouldn't have the sophisticated concepts of blood groups, genetics, or language families but they would have noticed the obvious physical differences and that whites lived in Europe, yellows in Asia, and blacks in Africa, so they would base the concept  on biology and geography. They weren't as clueless as no-race proponents imply.  And in fact this is exactly what we find.

In the ancient Egyptian Book of Gates, 4 groups were recognized, what we call today the Egyptians, the Lybians, Asiatics, and Nubians. In Egyptian royal tombs figures were painted in different colours to represent the 4 groups. Sanskrit literature speaks of  3 groups: the dark-complexioned Nashadas, yellow-complexioned Kiratas, and white-complexioned Indo-Aryans. In 200 BC the Chinese distinguished 5 groups by colour. (Sharma and Kumar, loc. cit.).

Medieval models were Biblically-based and humanity was divided  into the  descendants of Noah's 3 sons so there were the Hamitic (African) race, the Shemitic (Asian) race, and the Japhetic (European) race, which corresponds with modern concepts. And an earlier name for the Afro-Asiatic language group was "Hamito-Semitic." However, Genesis 9: 25-27 does not designate Ham or his descendants as black. It was only 1 of his 4 sons, Cush, whose territory was Nubia,  who was designated as the ancestor of blacks. His other sons were Canaan, whose territory was the Levant, and Put, whose territory was Libya. And the Semitic branch did not designate the Mongoloids, the Semitic language family never included any Mongoloid languages, and  the Canaanite language family never included any black languages--it included notably Phoenician and Hebrew. So the tripartite division of humanity in the Middle Ages based on the Bible was an artificial extrapolation.  Also, the curse of servitude on Canaan by Noah was distorted to justify slavery.  Ham and Canaan were white and the Levant was populated by whites.  The  curse on Canaan and blessing (of enlargement) on Japheth can be seen as functioning  also as prophecies, which can be interpreted as the Israelites conquering Canaan and the expansion of Europe through colonization. 

In the 1500s, Giordano Bruno and Jean Bodin did racial classifications, the latter distinguishing duskish, black, chestnut, and white. Bernier's taxonomy distinguished Europeans (including North Africans and Persians), black Africans, Chinese, and Lapps (Nouvelle division de la Terre, par les différents Espèces ou Races d'hommes qui l'habitent, Journal des sçavans 12: 148-55, 1684, as cited in From Nation to Race: the Origin of Racial Classification in 18th Century Thought, 18th Century Studies 29: 247-64, N. Hudson, 1996 (jft-newspaper.aub.edu.lb)).

Richard   Bradley in 1721  recognized 5 "sorts of men" on the basis of colour, hair shape, and pilosity: white Europeans with beards, "a sort of white" in America without beards, mullatoes, straight-haired blacks, and curly-haired blacks in Guiney with hair like the wool of sheep (A Philosophical Account of the Works of Nature, p. 169, as cited in N. Hudson, loc. cit.; Racial Classifications of the 17th and 18th centuries, Transac. Wisc. Acad. Scis, Arts, Letters 36: 459-67, S. J. Slotkin, 1944 (digicoll.library.wisc.edu)). Linneus in his Systema Naturae of 1735 and 1758  recognized 4 varieties (varietate) (based mostly on temperament):  Homo americanus rufus, europeus albus, asiaticus luridus, and afer niger. Gmelin invented the name Homo sapiens albus in 1788 and Berg introduced the name Homo sapiens australasicus in 1825. Kant's 4 were white, black, yellow, and Hindu or Hindustani, in 1775 (U. of Konigsberg lecture published as On the Differnt Races of Humans). Scottish physician John Hunter had 7 varieties: black (Negro and Papuan), blackish (Moors and the Capoids), coppetone ((E. Indies), red (American), tawny (Tartras, Arabs, Persians, and Chinese), brown (Turkish, Assyrian, Samoyed, and Lapps)(An Inaugural Disputationon the Varieties of Man, 1775). Johann Erxleben had 6: Tartars, Asiatics, Africans, Lapps, Mexicans, and Europeans (Systema regni animalis, 1777). Zimmerman and Klugel also had 4, the fomer in 1777 (Geographische Geschichte der Menschen, vol. 1) comprising Europeans, Northern Asians-North Americans, Arab-Indies-Indonesian Archipelago, and S. Asian-Chinese-Korean; the latter (Enciclopaedie, vol. 1) Asian-European-N. African, Negroes, American, and South Sea Islanders.  Based on facial angle or head profile, essentially a measure of gnathism, Dutch anatomist Pieter Camper distinguished Negro (70 degrees), Kalmuck (70 degrees), and European (80-100 degrees).

J.F. Blumenbach, German physician, naturalist, physiologist, and anthropoligist,   had 5 in his system (On the Natural Variety of Humanity, 1795, 3rd ed.):  Oriental, American Indian, Caucasian, Malay (including Malaysians, Indonesians, and  Pacific Islanders), and African (black). Besides the usual colours, he designated the native Americans as red and the Malays as brown. Although his idol was Linneus, who stereotyped races and believed in racial superiority, Blumenbach had a special library of  books by black authors and maintained the natural and equal worth of all races and opposed slavery (The Mismeasure of Man, S.J. Gould). He also was a monogenist and, like Leclerc (Comte de Buffon), believed in the degeneration theory (which held that Adam and Eve were Caucasian, that Caucasians were the original race, and the other races evolved from it by degeneration), but sharply criticized scientific racialism (Blumenbach-Wikipedia). If there was such an origin the evolution of the other races would have been normal, not by degeneration. However, he did not mean the term  in the modern sense but instead to mean  departure from an initial form of humanity at the creation (Gould).  The evidence from genes and paleontology indicates an African origin, however, there may have been a back migration from Asia as indicated by the studies on the Y-chromosome by Ornella Semino et al (Ethiopians and Khoisan Share the Deepest Clades of the Human Y-Chromosome, Am. J. Hum. Genet.  70: 265–268. 2002. on-line) and Fulvio Cruciani et al  (A Back Migration from Asia to Sub-Saharan Africa is Supported by High-Resolution Analysis of Human Y-Chromosome Haplotypes, Am. J. Hum. Genet. 70: 1197-1214. 2002. on-line).

Virey (Histoire naturelle du genre humain, 1801) divided humans into 2 species, a northern, with an open facial angle (85-90) and light skin, with 3 races (white, tawny (corresponding to Mongoloid), and coppertone (American or Caribbean); and a southern, with a closed facial angle (75-80) and dark skin, also with 3 races (dark brown (Malay or Indian), black (corresponding to Congoid), and blackish (correspondiing to Khoi-San). This was  the same basis as Camper's.    (Fuerle also sees humans as 2 species, but different from Virey, Homo africanus and Homo eurasianensis; this 2-species concept, however, is not solid as Woodley explains (loc. cit.)). Georges Cuvier at 1st had 5: Caucasian, Mongolian, Negro, Hyperborean, and American (Tableau élémentaire d'histoire naturelle des animaux, 1804), and later only the 1st 3 (Règne Animal). In 1806  Duméril added Malay to Cuvier's 5 (Zoologie Animal). In Zoologie Philosophique in 1809, de Monet (Lamarck) added Hyperborean to Cuvier's 5. Leclerc's system (Histoire de l'homme) contained 6 varieties: Polar or Lappish, Tartar, Southern Asiatic, European, Negro, and American. Latreille distiguished 3: Caucasian, Mongolian, and Ethiopian (Familles du règne animal, 1825). Bory's 15 species were Japétique, Arabique, Indienne, Scythique, Sinique, Hyperboréenne, Neptunienne, Australasienne, Colombienne, Patagone, Cafre, Américaine, Ethiopienne, Mélanienne, and Hottentote. The Desmoulins taxonomy (Des races humaines) had 16 species: Scythique (3 races), Caucasienne, Sémitique (3 races), Atlantique, Indoue, Mongolique (3 races), Kourilienne, Ethiopienne, Euro-Africaine, Austro-Africaine (2 races: Hottentote, Boschimane), Malaise (Océanique) (5 races), Papoue, Nègre Océanique, Australasienne, Colombienne, and Américaine. Malte-Brun and Mentelle also had 16 and much the same as Bory and Desmoulins. The Abbé Delacroix's system had only 2, black and white, the latter containing white, yellowish, and olive-coloured. Achille Comte delimited 5, which were white, yellow, red, brown, and black. Lesson recognized 6: white, fuliginous, orange, yellow, red, and black.  Zoologist Honoré Jacquinot's  comprised 3 species: Caucasian, Mongolian, and Negro, which he presented in his doctoral thesis of 1848. The 1st had 4 races: germanique, celtique, sémitique (containing Arabs, Persians, and Judaics), and indienne; the 2nd 6: mongole, sinique, malaise, polynésienne, and américaine; and the 3rd had 4 races: éthiopienne, hottentote, nègre océanienne (mélanienne), australienne. In 1860, Isodore Geoffroy St. Hilaire, based on facial profile, delimited 4: orthognathes, eurygnathes,  prognathes, and eurygnathes-prognathes (Vallois, 1948), with  Deniker (1904) naming them as Caucasian (Caucasian and Alleghanian (Red Indian), Mongolian (Hyperboreans (Lapps), Malay, American (excluding Alleghanians), Mongolian,  Paraborean (Eskimos), and Australian), Ethiopian (Kafir, Ethiopian, Negro, Melanesain), and Hottentot.  Topinard in 1878 proposed 16 races in 3 groups, straight-haired (the Mongoloids), wavy- or frizzy-haired (Caucasians, the Australoids of Huxley (Australians and Indo-Abyssinians), and the Fulani), and wooly-haired (Bushmen, Papuans, Kafirs, and Negritoes). and in 1885 he proposed 19 races  also in 3 groups, White Leptorhines, Yellow Mesorhines, and Black Platyrhines, the latter containing Australians, Bushmen, Melanesains, Negoes, Tasmanians, and Negritoes (Deniker, 1904).  Quatrefages (1889) identified 18 branches in 5 trunks: Negro, Yellow, and White, and the mixed races Oceanians (Japanese, Polynesisan, and Malay) and Americans North, Central, and South), with the 1st containing Indo-Melanesian, Austalian, African, and Austro-African. French anthropologist Joseph Deniker (1889) proposed 13 races and 30 subdivisions he called types. Swiss scientist Louis Agassiz recognized 8 (De l'espèce et de la classification en zoologie, 1869).

British biologist Thomas Huxley (On the Geographical Distribution of the Chief Modifications of Mankind. 1870, on-line)  distiguished  5 primary races and 14 secondary ones. The former were named Australoid, Negroid, Xanthochroi (fair whites), Melanochroi (dark whites), and Mongoloid. However, he officially excluded Melanochroi or ambiguously included it together with Xanthochroi as Caucasians. His grandson Aldous wrote the famous distopian novel Brave New World in 1932.  Walckenaer (Cosmologie, 1816) distinguished 3: Scythian (white), Mongolian, and Ethiopian. Another grandson, Julian, was also a biologist and author and director of UNESCO from '46-'48. Haeckel in 1879, who we encounter in empirebiota.info, used hair type as the criteron and recognized 4 primary groups, tribes, or subspecies, divided into 12 secondary races, and 34 subgroups, the 4 being Lophocomi (tufted wooly)(Papuans and Hottentots), Eriocomi (typically (untufted) wooly)(Kafirs and Negroes), Euthycomi (straight)(Australians, Malays, Mongols, Hyperboreans (Arctic peoples), Americans), and Euplocomi (curly)(Dravidians, Nubians, Mediterraneans (Vallois, 1948; Deniker, 1904).  American naturalist Charles Pickering recognized 11 (Races of Man and their Geographical Distribution, 1848). William Flower (1885)(Deniker, 1904) proposed 11 races and 3 subraces in 3 types: Negro, Mongolian, and Caucasian. Flower was an eminent anatomist who succeeded Huxley as Hunterian Professor of Comparative Anatomy, and succeeded Richard Owen as director of the Natural History Museum. His  father was opposed to the slave trade. Still in the 1800s,  Crawford recognized 26 and Burke 63 (Darwin, The Descent of Man, 1871, on-line).

1900 saw  Deniker's 2nd and influential classification (Les races et les peuples de la terre (Races of Man, 1904, archive.org)), which was based on many characteristics. He recognized 17 groups, 29 races, and 14 subraces. The groups were: Bushman-Hottentot, Negroid, Ethiopian, Australian, Dravidian, Assyroid, Indo-Afghan, North African, Melanchroid, Xanthochroid, Ainu, Oceanian, American, Eskimo, Lapp, Eurasian (Ugrian and Turkish), and Mongolian. They can be grouped into black (the 1st 4), white (the 5th to the 11th), and yellow (the 12th to the 17th). He tabulated the 29 races into 6  groups, but not ones that reflected true affinities. Swiss anthropologist George Montandon in 1933 recognized the same 3 races but as grand-races and separated out  Pygmoids and Vedda-Australoids making 5 grand-races, also called the Caucasoids Europoids, and distinguished several races and 22 subraces.  Henri-Victor Vallois (Les races humaines, 1944) also postulated 4 groups: primitive, black, white, and yellow,  with 27 subraces, which he later also calls grand-races and names Australoid, Melanoderm, Leucoderm, and Xanthoderm. 

British anthropologist A. C. Haddon (Races of Man and their Distribution, 1909, 1925, 1930, on-line)  distinguished between Ulotrichi (Pygmies, Bantus, "true Negroes" (W. Sudanese or Nigritians (of the Guinea Coast), E. Sudanese or Nilotic (of the Sudan and Upper Nile Valley)), Khoi-San, Papuans, Melanesians), Cymotrichi (Caucasians (including Veddas, Dravidians, and Ainu), Australians, Ethiopians, Indonesians, and Polynesians), and Leiotrichi (the remaining Mongoloids), much like Haeckel had, that is, based primarily on hair type. In 1923, Roland Dixon, in Racial History of Mankind, based on skull shape, proposed several races--Proto-Australoid, Proto-Negroid, Proto-Indonesian, Proto-Malay,  Caspian-Mediterranean, Mongoloid, Paleo-Alpine, Alpine--theorizing that the 1st 2 mixed in Indochina and India to form the Negroids, and the Caspian-Mediterranean and Negroid, with a slight Mongoloid factor, mixed to form the Proto-Indonesians, and the Mongoloids drove out the Proto-Indonesians to form the brachycephalic Proto-Malays (How Obsolete Are the Theories of Dixon?-jstor.org). Caucasoid, Negroid, and Mongoloid were recognized by E. A. Hooton in 1931, who also distinguished several secondary and composite races and subraces, and did a modification in '47. Lester and Millot in 1936 postulated 4 groups--Pygmy, Black, Yellow, and White-- and 20 races. 

Ergon von Eickstedt in 1934 also proposed 3, but divided them into 18 subraces, 3 collateral races, 11 collateral subraces, and 3 intermediate forms, and named the Caucasoids Europoids (Wikipedia gives 3 subspecies, Europids, Leiotrichi (Mongolids and Indianids), and Negrids, with many series and varieties). It was one of the most ambitious taxonomies and was in 7 volumes called Rassenkunde und  Rassengschichte der Menscheit. Renato Biasutti (1959) circumscribed 4 subspecies, 16 primary races, and 52 secondary races. His was also one of the most ambitious and was in 4 volumes called Le razze e i popoli della terra (Sharma and Kumar, loc. cit.).

In the 1930s German anatomist and physical anthropologist Franz Weidenreich  proposed the Multiregional Model, pejoratively called by Wm. Howells the Candelabra Hypothesis, which was polycentric and polygenic (multiple origins), delimiting 4 races: Australian, African, Caucasian, and Mongolian, which he presented in a trellis form (Existence or Non-Existence of Race, Conrad Quintyn, 2010; G.W. Gregory (Franz Weidenreich, 1873-1948-aaanet.org (originally published in Am. Anthropologist 51: 85-90, 1949)). He maintained that race was a geographic phenomenon, which is true, that there were no pure races, which is true, but that there were no stable archetypes (because there was admixture from the outset), and that the traits were arbitrary, the last 2 being totally false ideas and bizarre given that he himself was using non-arbitrary traits and identified the 4 stable archetypes (confirmed through morphological, chemical, and genetic evidence)--a contradiction comparable to Cavalli-Sforza.

He ran afoul of the National Socialist Party because he pointed out the fallacy of their racial ideas but also because he was Judaic and escaped to the States with his wife. His mother-in-law perished in a concentration camp and 2 of his daughters were in one but survived and the other daughter was already  in New York. The 5 were reunited there after the liberation. In contrast to this, George Montandon was communist and fiercely anti-Judaic, and he and his wife were assassinated in their home near Paris with their 3 children present in 1944  by the French Resistance (fr.Wikipedia).

Weidenreich's model was supported by Haddon  and Coon. Other polygenists, who were generally in favour of racial superiority, were Bory, Desmoulins, Virey, Haeckel, Hooton, Agassiz, Broca, Ripley, Hrdlicka, Dixon,  Eickstedt, and Vallois. One hypothesis was supported notably by Haddon, Eickstedt, and Vallois,  and postulated the origin of modern humans to be in Asia--3 isolated zones populated by a stock each: Southern Hominins, who migrated to Africa  giving rise to the Negroids and to Australia giving rise to the Australoids; the Western Hominins, who gave rise to the Caucasians; and the Eastern Hominins, who gave rise to the Mongoloids.  Monogenism,  which was supposedly generally egalitarian, was supported by Cuvier,  Blumenbach, and Darwin. It had already become mainstream in the 20th century and is now almost universally accepted. 

Coon, Stanley Garn, and Birdsell (1950) circumscribed 6 "putative stocks": Negroid, Mongoloid, Caucasoid, Australoid,  American Indian, and Polynesian. Coon (loc. cit.) proposed 5 races which he also called subspecies,  Caucasoid, Mongoloid, Australoid, Congoid, and Capoid. He grouped them into an East-West dichotomy,  the former (east of the Movius Line (named for Hallam Movius, Jr., the American archeologist who 1st proposed it ( in 1948) to demonstrate a difference between the early prehistoric tool technologies of the east and west in the Old World), described by the Tien Shan and Himalayan Mts.), containing the Capoids, Congoids, and Caucasoids,  and the Western (west of the Movius), containing the Mongoloids and Australoids. This is  the same as Cavalli-Sforza's '64 phylogeny. An East-West dichotomy was proposed by others, notably V.P. Alekseyeff in 1974 (Geographical Classification of Races).

Of all these modern morphological classifications only Cuvier, Walckenaer, Latreille, Jacquinot, Flower, Topinard, Haddon, and Hooton proposed  the 3 major stocks (we might include also Blumenbach in this as he apparently considered Caucasian, Oriental, and African as primary and Malay and American as mixed, and also Quatrefages who did much the same);  Bory, Virey, and Delacroix, the 2 more inclusive ones; and Huxley, Weidenreich, and Vallois, the 4 major ones. And  we can identify several schools: Haeckel and Haddon based their schemes on hair shape; Camper, Virey, and St. Hilaire on facial angle; and notably Deniker, Eickstedt, Weidenreich,  Biasutti, Vallois, and Coon on multiple characteristics. We can also identify several schools based on  nationality (not ideology or methodology): the French (Bodin, Bernier, Cuvier, Leclerc, Virey, Agassiz, Bory, Desmoulins, Delacroix, Comte, Lesson, Jacquinot, Topinard, Quatrefages,  Deniker,  Montandon, and Vallois), the German  (Kant, Blumenbach, Erxleben, Zimmerman, Klugel, Walckenaer, Haeckel, Eickstedt, and Weidenreich), the British school (Bradley, Hunter, Huxley, and Haddon),  the American  (Pickering, Hooton, Dixon, and Coon), and the Italian  (Bruno and  Biasutti).

Unfortunately, most of the earlier race taxonomists and many later ones in the modern era were racialist or racist so race classification has become associated with racism. However, the opposite is true now--probably most of the current race taxonomists are not at all racist or racialist. Vallois is an example of later ones who were egalitarian. He was an eminent French anthropologist and paleontologist, director of the Musée de l'Homme and editor of the Revue d'Anthropologie from 1932-1970. In Poirier (loc. cit., p. 681) he states: "La notion de races supérieures et de races inférieures doit disparaître."). He can be seen in a Radio-Canada interview in '61 on the TV show Premier Plan at archives-radiocanada.  

And although there is some genuine concern about misuse of racial differences, the no-race view is mostly political, and comes largely from the mostly white extreme left much of which is itself racist, but against different groups, mostly white. Also, what most racialists, who are mostly white, are saying is not that whites are superior but instead  that yellows are superior, which goes against the racist accusation. And the everything-is-racist mantra is cynical, callous, and extremist, not  to mention hypocritical, and naturally part of the lunatic fringe, and is the usual mindless polemics of orthodox fanaticism. So there certainly is a credibility problem with the no-race side. As well, the public seems to be distinctly underwhelmed by the no-race position.

In fact, racial classifications could be said to contradict racism because many of the groups considered inferior are more derived than the "superior" ones. The Nordic type, for instance, is typically dolichocephalic,  like Africans. And racists, since they believe in a supreme race would have to say that Eskimos are the supreme race but Eskimos are considered inferior by racists. Furthermore, in varietal classifications the black Africans and  Caucasoid-Mongoloids are of equal rank, and the Caucasoids and Mongoloids are of equal rank. The ancestral group has equal value to the more derived one.  At such a low rank (below subspecies)  distances between taxons are too small for any correlation with intelligence. And without the recognition or classification of the varieties of Man, ethnology and physical anthropology are seriously incomplete, so such recognition and classification are practical and necessary for a real understanding of these 2 sciences. Also, such taxonomies are necessary in elucidating human evolution.

The no-race idea runs counter to common sense and is counter-intuitive,  and there are 6 lines of evidence that support race as a real, biological entity, and, while there might be some basis for the view that race is not genetic there is none for the view it is not biological. Race-intelligence correlation also runs counter to common sense and is also counter-intuitive,  and there are 3 lines of evidence against it. Either notion is as much pseudoscience as the other.

3 Women Whistleblowers

There is  the credible testimony of 3 women as outlined in the following from "Illuminati" Sex Slaves Paint Horrifying Picture - by Henry Makov, PhD (web article):

"Two women tortured, brainwashed, and prostituted by the "Illuminati" paint a disturbing picture of how the world is really run. Both say they were prostituted to world leaders as children. They are Brice Taylor, author of Thanks for the Memories (1999) and Cathy O'Brien (with Mark Phillips) author of Trance-Formation of America (1995). These books are consistent and confirm the revelations of "Illuminati" programmer "Svali" ("Illuminati Defector Details Pervasive Conspiracy"). If you want to understand the world, you must read these three women. Essentially every country is run by a shadow government, which owes its loyalty to the New World Order controlled by a 13-member "Illuminati" Council. "

Svali states the Freemasons are more or less the same as the Bavarian Obscurantists (they are "hand in glove" ), even though  the rank and file are legitimate, and that they are largely homosexual and pedophilic, that there is a German (the top branch), British, French, and Russian branch, and that they're into drug trafficking, gun running, and prostitution (see also the Svali Speaks and Save the Male websites).
 
Svali and others affirm the Obscurantists have infiltrated not only government and the media but also the police and the military. The opposition to self-defence, an opposition  which is institutionalized,  being rampant in the police, government, and the judiciary, favours criminals, and is relatively unquestioned, fits perfectly into the Obscurantist agenda of people control. The anti-gun lobby is certainly controlled and cultivated by them. The banning of firearms for self-defence is not only an egregious violation of human rights and civil liberties but is a police state measure, as well, and the goal is abolition as stated by pro-crime government officials like Alan Rock and Janet Reno.

the Franklin Conspiracy

Here is the Amazon description of Unshackled: a Survivor's Story of Mind Control (Kathleen Sullivan, Dandelion, 2003, 486 pp.):
 
"A non-fictional account of Kathleen Sullivan’s experiences as part of a criminal network that includes intelligence personnel, military personnel, doctors, and mental health professionals contracted by the military and the CIA, criminal cult leaders and members, pedophiles, pornographers, drug dealers, and Nazis." The approval rating is 80 % out of 9 customers.
 
Still more evidence is documented in The Franklin Cover-Up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder ( John Decamp) which gets a 90% approval rating out of 60 Amazon customers. Here is an Amazon customer review:

"This book, authored by a former Republican Nebraska State Senator, exposes the elite web of crime, satanic cults, and child sexual abuse that reaches through the highest levels of power in our society. The organized cover-up and suppression of the events and victims' accounts is well documented, as is the author's role as attorney in the investigations and court cases. It's interesting that former CIA director Bill Colby ambiguously acknowledged to the author that the scenario described is real, and not long thereafter Colby turned up dead under suspicious circumstances. This is a good book to recommend for those in denial about the depravity and deviousness of those with power and influence in our society. The only significant weakness about the book is that it does not go into much discussion of the larger context of elite cults and organized conspiratorial activity, instead just focusing on a small portion of this activity."
 
And on the same case is The Franklin Scandal: the Story of Power-Broking, Child Abuse, and Betrayal, by investigative journalist Nick Bryant (Trine Day, 2009, 400 pp.) and this is Amazon's description:
 
"A chilling exposé of corporate corruption and government cover-ups, this account of a nationwide child-trafficking and pedophilia ring in the United States tells a sordid tale of corruption in high places. The scandal originally surfaced during an investigation into Omaha, Nebraska's failed Franklin Federal Credit Union, and took the author beyond the Midwest and ultimately to Washington, DC. Implicating businessmen, senators, major media corporations, the CIA, and even the venerable Boys Town organization, this extensively researched report includes first-hand interviews with key witnesses and explores a controversy that has received scant media attention."

Infiltration of the KGB and the Vatican

It has been proven, also, that the Obscurantists  have infiltrated the KGB and the Vatican. Angels and Demons Revealed, a TV documentary hosted by Patrick MacNee, late of the Avengers TV series,  shows, among other things, that certain periods on KGB documents are, in fact, the seal of the Obscurantists (the pyramid and eye, which is  a Freemason symbol and appears on the back of the US $1 bill). The show demonstartes, as well, that the  Obscurantists  murdered 3 popes (Pius II, Paul VI, and John Paul I; this last pope's assassination is documented in "In God's Name" by David Yallop).
 
War and Revolution

The Obscurantists engineered the French Revolution (Pouget de Saint Andres, "Les auteurs cachés de la revolution française", 1902; Proofs of the Illuminati, Seth Payson, 1802, B. Wlliamson Pblg.; Nesta Webster's Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, 1924; Gods of Eden, Wm. Bramley, 1993, Avon; the Unseen Hand, E. Ralph Epperson, 1985; Rule by Secrecy), the American Revolution, the US Civil War (Rule By Secrecy), but also the Russian Revolution (Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, Anthony Sutton, 1993, Buccaneer),  WWs 1 and 2 (Illuminati: the Cult that Hijacked the World, Book Surge, 2008, 260 pp.; Rule by Secrecy, Jim Marrs; etc.), fascism,  communism, the drug culture, the degeneration of society that started in the late '60s and early '70s with the rise and dominance of the ultra-left, etc.

Feminaziism

In "Cruel Hoax: Feminism and the New World Order" (Silas Green Pblg., 2007), Dr. Makov  makes the point that the Obscurantists have socially engineered "women's lib". I wouldn't be surprised if this were true. What lends great credence to this idea is that Gloria Steinem was a CIA agent who spied on Marxist activists in Europe, dated notorious Obscurantist Henry Kissinger, and her magazine was partly funded by the CIA, and this information she tried to suppress, but it came out anyways (Village Voice, May 21, 1979; Gloria Steinem: How the CIA Used Feminism to Destabilize Society, by Henry Makow 2002-savethemales). Certainly, Obscurantists would have an interest in cultivating and encouraging radical feminism since it creates conflict and is an abusive hate movement, with the brainwashed masses blindly going along with it and pretty much everything else, too. Just as secret societies hide behind fronts and covers for violent criminal acts, feminism uses women's rights as an excuse, a front, and a cover for hatred and bigotry against men, and  is essentially mysogynist, being against femininity. This is not surprising as secret societies are misogynist as nearly all of them do not allow female members.

Dr. Makow  invented the board game Scruples in 1984,  which was translated into 5 languages and sold 7 million copies worldwide. He was born in 1949 in Zürich of Judaic parentage and  is a Canadian political theorist, author, and columnist. When he was only a baby, the family  moved to Ottawa. At the age of only 11 he began writing his syndicated advice-to-parents column, "Ask Henry," which ran in 50 newspapers in the early 60s and was published in book form in '62. He received his Ph.D. in English literature from the University of Toronto in 1982, and now resides in Winnipeg.   He is also author of  Illuminati: the Cult that Hijacked the World (Book Surge, 2008, 260 pp.).

the P2 Conspiracy
 
Licio Gelli, who became a Mason in 1963,  turned a little used Masonic lodge, the Propaganda Masonica Due (P2), founded in 1877, into what was termed a "world-wide fascist conspiracy", with the help of the Mafia, the Vatican Bank, and the CIA. He had gained control of the lodge by 1966, and increased membership from 14 to nearly 1000.  He was a business partner of National Socialist war criminal Klaus Barbey, financial backer of Juan Peròn, a paid CIA contact and friend of  Ronald Reagan and guest at his 1980 inauguration, and claimed to be a friend of George Bush, Sr., who some contend was an honorary member of P2. (Rule by Secrecy).

Several investigators have claimed  a major force behind P2 was the Masonic Grand Alpine Lodge of Switzerland, whose membership includes most everyone of importance in that nation of banks. Former British PM and Bilderberger Harold Wilson called the members "the Gnomes of Zurich" , claiming they had more power than any government. (Rule By Secrecy) 

Mino Pecorelli, a P2 member himself, and who was murdered gangland style in '79,  claimed the CIA was funding the lodge, a charge echoed by CIA contract agent Richard Brennke in 1990 as well as General Maletti. In CIA director Wm. Colby's memoirs it says there was a stay-behind army in Danmark, which he set up. Colby wasa member of Opus Dei. CIA documents released in June, 2006 under the 1998 Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act show that the CIA organized stay-behind networks of German agents between 1949 and 1955.  Also, the Parliamentary Commission Report in Italy in 2000 implicated US intel agencies in the guerrilla warfare. (Operation Gladio-Wikipedia) 

By '81, Italian authorities had discovered the P2 plot, which included 3 cabinet ministers, 40 MPs, 43 generals, 8 admirals, security service chiefs, police chiefs of 4 major cities, industrialists, financiers, entertainment celebrities, 24 journalists, and 1000s of diplomats and civil servants. They also found a carefully designed "Strategy of Tension" plan  to fabricate so much left-wing guerrilla warfare that there would be calls for an authoritarian or even fascist state. This plan evolved from Gladio, which was created just after WW2 by CIA official   to prevent a communist takeover of Italy. (Rule by Secrecy). J.J. Angleton  is quoted as saying, "Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the state" and was head of CIA Counter Intelligence from 1954-74 (informationliberation).

Gladio tactics involved creating alliances between the Mafia and Vatican officials, the CIA, and Knights of Malta, creating, funding, and/or aiding urban guerrilla groups such as the Red Brigades and the  Baader-Meinhof Gang, political assassinations such as the murder of Aldo Moro in '78, and interference in Italian elections such as in '48. Gladio was also a secret paramilitary army with stockpiles of weapons and explosives and 15,000 troops. Similar groups were formed in  France, Belgium, the Low Countries, Scandinavia, and West Germany, often directed by former SS officers. They were organized supposedly to fight against a possible Russian occupation, but instead were used as an urban guerrilla warfare network. (Operation Gladio from The CIAs Greatest Hits by Mark Zepezauer-thirdworldtraveller.com).   The term Gladio or Operation Gladio is often used to mean all of the stay-behind armies in Western Europe (Operation Gladio-Wikipedia).

In France they were called Plan bleu, La rose des vents, and Arc-en-ciel. Constantin Melnik was perhaps involved with one of them and had links to the Rand Corporation, founded the Ordre souvereain du temple solaire, a forerunner of the infamous Ordre du temple solaire, which was formed by the Rosicrucians.

Originally aired on BBC2 in 1992, 'Operation Gladio' is a series  about these stay-behind networks, operated by the CIA and MI6 through NATO (informationliberation).

the Goths    
 
The Goth cult is also almost certainly an Obscurantist invention since it has been involved in school shootings and other murders and pedophilia (Columbine, Dawson, the triple murder in Brantford, Ont., family murdered by pedophile and girlfriend, etc.) and other serious crime (child molestation, NYC rapes, and violent racism (Vampire Goths: the Facts-godhatesgoths) and has  fascist  and Satanic elements but is made to look legitimate by the media.

Politics

Senators John Rockefeller (D-W. Va.) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) believe that Obama should have the power to shut down domestic Internet traffic during a state of emergency and have introduced a bill, the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, to establish the Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor—an arm of the executive branch that would have vast power to monitor and control Internet traffic to protect against threats to critical cyber infrastructure (Should Obama Control  the Internet? by Steve Aquino, Apr. 2, 2009-Mother Jones magazine, on-line). This is in egregious violatioon of fundamental civil  liberties.

The bill gives the president the ability to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any "critical" information network "in the interest of national security." The bill does not define a critical information network nor a cybersecurity emergency. That definition would be left to the president. In other words Obama would have dictatorial powers.

It also grants the Commerce Minister (secretary is a misnomer) "access to all relevant data concerning [critical] networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access." This means he can monitor or access any data on private or public networks without regard to privacy laws.

Leslie Harris, head of the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), states, "such a drastic federal intervention in private communications technology and networks could harm both security and privacy." Jennifer Granick, civil liberties director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, says that granting such power to the commerce minister could actually cause networks to be less safe. When one person can access all information on a network, "it makes it more vulnerable to intruders," Granick asserts. "You've basically established a path for the bad guys to skip down."  The bill's scope, she says, is "contrary to what the constitution promises us...Once information is accessed, it can be used for whatever purpose, no matter the original reason for accessing something," declares Granick. "Who's interested in this [bill]? Law enforcement and people in the security industry who want to ensure more government dollars go to them."

Ex. Ord.  HR 645 from 2009  (National Emergencies Establishment Act) directs the Homeland Security Minister "to establish  national emergency  centers on military installations" and "to meet other appropriate needs as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security" (govtrack); these would come under the jurisdiction of the notorious FEMA (Federal Emergency Measures Agency). PDD-51 (Presidential Decision Directive) gives dictatorial powers to the president in time of emergency. Rex 84 (Readiness Exercise 84) came to light  during the Iran-Contra hearings. And  a declassified document which was secret for 11 years concerns the establishment of labour camps (army.mil).

And Agenda 21 is a blueprint for a global communism under the guise of sustainable development in which there will be population reduction and people will be herded into special areas where their lives will be totally controlled by the  state, where they will have no rights, no private property, and no freedoms. It was adopted by the UN at the Rio summit in '92 (You Tube: Agenda 21 in a Nutshell, Agenda 21 Explained, Agenda 21-the UN's diabolical plan, Agenda 21-the End of Private Property, What is Agenda 21?, and Millions to be killed under Agenda 21).

The Name 

The name "Illuminati " comes from the idea the members supposedly have knowledge others don't and they are somehow enlightened, but this is the usual hypocrisy as  they are certainly not enlightened and are quite the opposite, being evil people, working in secret, and obscuring information so the truth is hard to get out and get at. They are obscurantists and obscurantism is withholding or concealing knowledge but it is not intellectual knowledge or not just that, it is  the knowledge of their criminal activities and dark designs. Obscurity also has the connotation of darkness as in evil. Like Bill Cooper said, the truth proponents are the ones who are truly illuminated.

Affiliated movements are Gnosticism, Kabbalism, Sufiism, and the New Age. Theosophy, Anthroposophy, the Mafia, and the Tongs, might also be included here but may not be Obscurantist groups per se.  A possibly Obscurantist group is the Knights of Columbus.

The  largest and/or most important are: Freemasons, Opus Dei, Jesuits, Knights of Malta, Knights of Pythias, Rosicrucians, and Skull and Bones. The Committee of 300 is separate from these in organization but is interlocking through membership and is a network instead of a single group and  the last 10 in the table are its most important member groups.

Freemasons

the Capt. Morgan Affair

An important event in the history of the Freemasons and the American Republic was the kidnapping and murder of Captain William Morgan, disaffected member of the inner circle who planned to reveal the inner workings of the cult and who wrote, "The bane of our civil institutions is to be found in Masonry, already powerful and daily becoming more so. I owe my country an exposure of its dangers." Due to the public backlash, 45,000 members left the cult and 2000 lodges closed (Rule By Secrecy). In 1827, his book was published posthumously and was titled, "Illustrations of Masonry."
   
In 1829, under public pressure, the NY State Senate investigated Freemasonry and reported that wealthy and powerful Masons were found at every level of govenment and condemned the "silent as the grave" news media, saying, "This self-proclaimed sentinel of freedom has felt the force of Masonic influence" (Rule by Secrecy). The 1st third party in the US, the Anti-Masonic Party, was formed in 1830 but had only partial success and was  gone by the end of the decade, largely absorbed by the newly formed Whig Party.

Billy Graham

In his research Fritz Springmeier accidentally discovered Billy Graham's Judaic ancestry and his  intimate connections with Judaic leaders and Judaic Christian ministries. Furthermore, the paper, called "The C-9 Report for internal use only," states on page 11 that Billy Graham’s daughters have lived in Israel, and that his son fought in the Israeli Army in the Six-Day War.   When they originally came over to the US the family changed their name to Graham which is a Scottish name in allusion to the Scottish Rite. Several other researchers independently discovered that Billy Graham’s heritage was the Frank family (related to Jacob Frank) (educateyourself - Illuminati Formula by F. Springmeier) (see Bavarain Obscurantists below).

One of the strongest Satanic cults is Sabbatianism. Jakob Frank assumed the role of leader of this group, and afterward this brand of Satanism was called Frankism (Freud’s perverse ideas were largely influenced by Frankism). Frank taught his followers to convert to another religion and hide behind that religion to practice their Satanism. One of several books on the subject of Frankism is The Contemporary Faces of Satan by Ratibor-Ray M. Jurjevich.

Graham went to North Korea in 1992 and praised that country  (Christianity Today, May 18, 1992, p.55;  Billy Graham and his family have sat on the board of this magazine and still control it). He has repeatedly claimed, over international mass media,  that there was no religious persecution under the communists, and  has praised Mao Tse-Tung’s principles and  communist leaders on numerous occasions (educateyourself - Illuminati Formula by F. Springmeier).

Jim Shaw, ex- Mason,  the highest ranking Freemason to defect to Christianity, writes about Billy Graham being at his 33° initiation ceremony. Huntington House refused to print his book co-authored with Tom McKenney unless they took out Billy Graham’s name on p. 104, and substituted a general description (see The Deadly Deception, p. 104-105). Only Freemasons are allowed to attend these initiations (see The New Age,  official organ of the Masonic Supreme Council, Wash., D.C., October, 1961, p. 30). Some Christians have tried everything to get around Jim Shaw’s testimony and the Masonic Lodge is now claiming that he wasn’t a 33° Freemason but there is no doubt that he was (educateyourself - Illuminati Formula by F. Springmeier).  See also Be Wise As Serpents  by Fritz Springmeier.

Rosicrucians

Rosicrucian teachings are a combination of occultism and  religious beliefs and practices, including Hermeticism, Judaic mysticism, and Christian Gnosticism (Encyc. Brit.). The central feature of Rosicrucianism is the belief that its members possess secret knowledge  handed down from ancient times (Encyc. Brit.; Wikipedia). Count Mirabeau, the Freemason French Revolutionary leader, claimed they were nothing more than the Knights Templar continued under another name.

The name either comes from Rosenkreutz, the Latin for dew cross (ros crux), the red cross on the shields of the Knights Templar (Rule By Secrecy), or the order’s symbol, a rose on a cross, which is similar to Martin Luther coat-of-arms (Encyc. Brit.).. Of course, the Red Cross organization was named in  allusion to Rosicrucianism or the Knights Templar as it was formed by a Freemason, Jean-Henri Dunant. 

Rosicrucianism was associated with Protestantism and in particular Lutheranism. According to historian David Stevenson, it was also influential on Freemasonry as it was emerging in Scotland. In later centuries, many secret societies have claimed to derive their doctrines, in whole or in part, from the original Rosicrucians.

French documents hold that an Order of the Rosy Cross  was founded in 1188 by a Templar named  Jean de Gisors, vassal of Henry II of England (Rule By Secrecy). Some recent writers contend that Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism were separate cults until they merged in the late 1700s. A Rosicrucian element was very largely diffused in the upper grades of European Freemasonry in about the mid-1700s, a fact acknowledged by Mackey. 
 
Rosicrucian ideas can be traced back to Plato and Pythagoras, the Egyptian mystery school of Thutmosis III, and the Cabbala, and Rosicrucians, like Freemasons, claim  their origins go back to ancient Egypt and further, but the name came to the fore only in the 1600s  with the publication of  2  anonymous tracts,   in Germany and later throughout Europe (Rule by Secrecy). These were Fama Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis (Fame of the Brotherhood of the Rose Cross ), in 1607, and Confessio Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis (Confession of the Brotherhood of the Rose Cross), in 1616 (Gorceix, Bernard, 1970, La Bible des Rose-Croix, Paris: a  reference work, containing translations of the 3 Rosicrucian Manifestos). They were supposed to have been written by Christian Rosenkreutz and detailed his travels through  the Holy Land and other Mediterranean locales, gaining secret knowledge. After studying with the "Alumbrados" of Spain, he returned to Germany and formed the Order of the Rosy Cross.

Together with a 3rd document, the writings were known as the  Rosicrucian Manifestos and were fictional tracts (Rosicrucians-Wikipedia; Rule by Secrecy).  The 3rd tract, Chemische Hochzeit (Chemical Wedding),  was so filled with symbolic references to the outlawed Knights Templar it was condemned, along with the  other 2, by the Catholic Church. The 3rd was  anonymously published and in his autobiography Johann Valentin Andrea,  claimed it  as one of his works, and he subsequently described it as a ludibrium. In his later works, he belittles alchemy (Rosicrucians-Wikipedia; Rule by Secrecy). He was a German Lutheran cleric who travelled extensively through Europe before becoming spiritual counselor to the Duke of Brunswick, chairman of the Freemason Convention at Wilhemsbad, and Freemason leader connected to Wilhelm of Hesse and the Rothschilds (Rule by Secrecy). The 1st Rosicrucian manifesto was influenced by the work of  Hermetic philosopher Heinrich Khunrath, of Hamburg, who was in turn influenced by John Dee. The writer also claimed the brotherhood possessed a book that resembled the works of Paracelsus (Wikipedia ). The manifestos supposedly were and are not taken literally by many but rather regarded either as hoaxes or as allegorical statements (Wikipedia).

Rosenkreutz was a German doctor and mystic philosopher referred to as "Frater C.R.C." ( identified in the 3rd manifesto as Christian Rosenkreuz, or "Rose-cross"). The year 1378 is presented as being the birth year of "our Christian Father," and it is stated that he lived 106 years. After studying in the Near East under various masters, possibly those adhering to Sufism or Zoroastrianism, he was unable to spread the knowledge he had acquired to any prominent European figures. Instead, he gathered a small circle of friends/disciples and founded the Rosicrucian Order (this can be deduced to have occurred in 1407). Others believe Rosenkreuz to be a pseudonym for a more famous historical figure, usually hypothesized as Francis Bacon (Rosucrucians-Wikipedia). During Rosenkreuz's lifetime, the Order was said to consist of no more than 8 members (Wikipedia).

The Order of the Gold and Rosy Cross, an early  German Rosicrucian group, became the basis of the Freemason Strict Observance Lodge, which many years later provided hiding places for the German Obscurantists.

Rosicrucians were seen by the Church as Satanists who made pacts with the devil and even sacrificed children (Rule by Secrecy). Such accusations against Obscurantists nowadays come from various witnesses as, I imagine, they may have come also in those days. Rosicrucians, like the Bavarian Obscurantists and the so-called Enlightenment, pretended to be rationalist and humanist,  while really being anti-rationalist and anti-human.

Notable members included Dante Alighieri, John Dee (spy for Queen Elizabeth I),  Francis Bacon, and architect Christopher Wren (Rule by Secrecy; Wikipedia).

Bavarian Obscurantists

The following is an account concerning modern or Bavarian obscurantism summarized from a posting on the Original Dissent website titled  "Adam Weishaupt and the Illuminati -The Ideological Background of the Illuminati" which is an excerpt from Juri Lina's "Under the Sign of the Scorpion-the Rise and Fall of the Soviet Union," p. 22-28.
 
According to the Judaic professor Gershom Scholem of the US, Jakob Frank (1726-1791) was the most frightening phenomenon in Judaic history. "His actions were totally immoral." American Rabbi Marvin  Antelman shows in his book "To Eliminate the Opiate" (1974) that there was a clear connection between Frankism and Weishaupt's Obscurantism. The goal of the Frankists was to work in secret to establish Judaic world supremacy. As Lani says, Professor Scholem has clearly documented that they achieved extensive political power.

"Jakob Frank (actually Leibowicz) was born in 1726, in Polish Galicia. He officially converted to Catholicism but this was just camouflage. Jakob Frank was jailed in 1760 for continuing to teach the Kabbala (Zohar) and for practising secret Judaic rituals. In 1730, the Russians attacked the region of Poland where Frank was held prisoner. He was released and moved to Offenbach (near Frankfurt am Main) in Germany where he began to lead a luxurious and wild life. His deeds were evil, his personality nefarious" ("Cabbala" ( 1974), "Sabbatai Zevi" (1973), and "The Messianic Idea in Judaism" ( 1971), all by Scholem).

Adam Weishaupt was born in 1748  in Bavaria into an assimilated Judaic family (Pouget de Saint Andres, "Les auteurs cachés de la revolution française", p. 16). His father was a professor at the University of Ingolstadt ("The Trail of the Serpent", Hawthorne, 1936, p. 68).  He was educated in a Jesuit monastery and studied law, literature, and atheist philosophy. In 1770, he was given a post as lecturer in canon law at the University of Ingolstadt. In 1771, he met Kolmer, a Danish Kabbalist Judaic who had just returned from Egypt, who initiated Weishaupt into the secrets of Osiris magic, the Cabbala, and the Alumbrado movement. Nesta Webster assumed that he had been known in Italy as Altotas, Cagliostro's master. Kolmer's obscurantist knowledge deeply influenced Weishaupt, who later chose the Egyptian pyramid as the Obscuranti's symbol of power.  In 1773 he left the Jesuit Order. This may have been because he had developed his independent ideology, but the subsquent dissolution of the Jesuit Order in 1730 by Pope Clement XIV may also have been a factor. A few years later, Weishaupt's Obscurantist  Order, now called "Perfectabilist", began to work against the Roman Catholic Church and in 1814 the Jesuit Order was re-established and through new infiltrations became even  more powerful than before. In 1775,  he became a member of the Lodge Theodor zum gute Rat within Freemasonry. Later, he was to use this foothold in Munich to allow his Obscuranti to infiltrate all the other Masonic lodges, due to the fact that he wielded great influence over the lodge through its Grand Master, Franz Benedict (Xavier) von Baader, who had joined the Obscurantists. 

 In 1777, the Obscurantists began to cooperate with all the Masonic lodges (especially the Grand Orient) in order to infiltrate them. When Weishaupt became a member of the Grand Orient, the lodge was backed financially by Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812), according to the British historian Nesta Webster. The Protestant princes and other rulers in Germany were well disposed to Weishaupt's official plan to destroy the Catholic Church and they sought membership in his order. Through these men Weishaupt gained control over the Masonic Orders, into which he and his Judaic cronies were initiated in this same year. To prevent the rulers from understanding the true aims of the Obscurantists he forestalled their contact with the higher degrees. The Duke of Brunswick, Grand Master of Germany, said in 1794 that the Masonic lodges were controlled by the  Obscuranti.
 
Baron Adolf von Knigge (1752-96), Weishaupt's closest collaborator, who later helped him to gain entrance to different Masonic organizations (Pat Brooks, "The Return of the Puritans", North Carolina, 1976, p. 68-69)  joined the Obscurantists in Frankfurt in 1780 under the alias of Philo (the original Philo was a Judaic scholar). The Obscurantists began to work especially actively after the entrance of  Knigge in July 1779. He brought together many powerful men. It was largely because of  Philo that the organization spread through the whole of Germany. In time, it won control of every Masonic order in the world. The Judaics had therefore gained a very powerful position. Their base of operations was Frankfurt- am-Main. However, Bramley (Gods of Eden) maintains the influence of these Obscurantists was exaggerated as Obscurantism already had control.

It was no coincidence that the Order of the "Illuminati" was founded on  May 1. Among the Kabbalist Judaics, this date, 15 (1.5), symbolized the sacred number of Yahweh and became their  holiday. According to Goethe, the first of May, the day following Walpurgis Nacht, is when the dark mystical forces are celebrated.

At this time a young Judaic named Mayer Amschel (born in 1744) was being tutored to become a rabbi. He lived with his parents in the Judaic ghetto of Frankfurt-am-Main and later took the name Rothschild (red shield). It was he who convinced Weishaupt to wholly accept the Frankist Kabbalist doctrine and who afterwards financed the Obscurantists. Rothschild had given Weishaupt the task of re-establishing the old "Alumbrado" movement for the Kabbalist Judaics.

Theoretical (Hermetic) Kabbala comprises only secret teachings about God and nature. But Practical Kabbala (such as Frankism) attempts to affect earthly matters. It involves the use of amulets,  magic numbers, and the conjuring of evil spirits. Both the Talmud and Midrash contain Kabbalist information ("Ancient Oriental and Judaic Secret Doctrines," Leipzig, 1805).

The Jesuits had taught Weishaupt much, not least their amorality. He encouraged his closest collaborators to use the lie as a tool and to avoid giving the public any true explanations. The leaders of the Obscurantists saw to it that their most dangerous opponents and others who might be a threat to the Order were poisoned ("Adam Weishaupt - A Human Devil", Gerald Winrod).

Bernard Lazar, a well-known Judaic author, wrote in his "L'Anti-semitisme", in 1894, that exclusively Kabbalist Judaics surrounded Weishaupt. Confiscated documents show that of 39 Obscurantists holding lesser leading positions, 17 were Judaics (i.e., 40%).  The higher one looked in the ranks, the larger was the percentage of Judaics. Even the fact that the Obscurantist headquarters in Ingolstadt were later converted into a synagogue was symbolic of this conspiracy. Lazar stated that all these Judaics became the agents of revolution because they had "revolutionary souls."

The presence of Judaics in secret societies is widespread, far beyond their population percentage overall, and, because of  the power and presence of the Obscurantist  in most fields of endeavour, is the reason for the over-representation of this ethnic group in show biz, the media, science, etc (see also Freemasonry and Judaism: the Secret Powers Behind Revolution, Vicomte Leon de Poncins, 1994, A & B Book Distribution, and Chp. 4 (The Judaic Element and Freemasonry) in Freemasonry and the Anti-Christian Movement, E. Cahill, 2003, Kessinger Publ.).

Most members of the Bavarian order were led to believe that the lower degrees of mystery they had reached were the highest. Few members had been informed about the true purpose of the Order.

The Order`s codex was presented in Masonic terms and prescribed lies, treachery, violence, torture, and murder in order to reach all its goals. Many members believed themselves to be working for an improvement of the world. They never guessed that Weishaupt's true purpose was to establish Novus Ordo Seclorum, a global program for world domination.

Weishaupt began to work especially closely with the Judaic Masonic leader Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786) who became one of Germany's foremost philosophers during the age of "enlightenment" and led the "Illuminati" in Berlin.

The Jesuits

In 1492 the  "Alumbrado" (the "Enlightened") movement was founded by Spanish marranos (baptized Judaics who secretly kept their Talmudic faith) while  a similar organization was founded in France in 1623 - named the "Guerinents", for their leader Guerin, who changed their name to "Illuminées" in 1722. The Spanish authorities attempted to stop the "Alumbrado" movement as early as 1527 when  Loyola was  arrested for his activities with the "Illuminati.`` Loyola (Inigo Lopez de Regalde), who was of Judaic descent and  born in the 1490s,   founded his own order  in 1534, the Society of Jesus ( the Jesuits), a secret military-religious order, taking out a loan for the purpose. The Pope acknowledged the  order  April 5, 1540 (Under the Sign of the Scorpion, Juri Lana).

Loyola was the last of 13 children and had 13 children himself (13 is an important number in Obscurantist numerology, see Obscurantist Symbols and Numbers below), was a soldier for 12 years, before becoming a priest, and was its 1st Superior-General. 

Jesuits are the largest male religious order in the Catholic Church, with 18,815 members—13,305 priests, 2,295 scholastic students, 1,758 brothers and 827 novices—as of January 2008, although the Franciscan family of first orders OFMs, Capuchins, and Conventuals has more total members. The average age of the Jesuits in 2008 was 63 for priests, 30 for scholastics, 65 for Brothers, and an overall average of 57.53 years.

Jesuit priests and brothers are engaged in ministries in 112 nations on six continents. They are best known in the fields of education (schools, colleges, universities, seminaries, theological faculties), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits. They are also known in missionary work, social justice,  human rights activities, interreligious dialogue, and other 'frontier' ministries.

They have been the object of dozens of expulsions and even some excommunications, were involved in the Gunpowder Plot (which involved also Guy Fawkes) of 1605 to blow up the Houses of Parliament, and are alleged to have been involved in the Lincoln and JFK assassinations.  It was the Judaic Jesuit Cardinal Roberto Bellarmino who ordered the philosopher Giordano Bruno burnt at the stake  in 1600. They are also accused of being too left-wing especially on issues of abortion and homosexuality. By contrast,  some are commemorated for heroic efforts against the Holocaust (Society of Jesus-Wikipedia), so the Jesuits are no exception in the use of legitimate fronts to hide illegal activities.

Knights of Malta

From  Aftermath News  we learn,  concerning the Knights of Malta, that Blackwater, which operates in Iraq, is  a private army operating outside all laws and above the US Constitution and yet is controlled by people within and outside the US  government whose allegiance is primarily to the Vatican so that it  is a religious army serving the Pope in Rome through the Order of Malta, which is itself considered under international law, as a sovereign entity with special diplomatic powers and privileges and like Blackwater, the Order of Malta is “untouchable."
 
The 2-headed eagle  on a red shield  of the Byzantine and Roman Empires was adopted in 1743 by the infamous goldsmith Amschel Moses Bauer, who opened a coin shop in Frankfurt and hung this emblem above his door. The shop became known as the “Red Shield Firm” and he adopted the name Rothschild meaning, of course, red shield. After this point, the Rothschilds became the bankers to kings and pontiffs alike, among the richest families in the world. Ever since, they have financed both sides of every major war and revolution using the so-called Hegelian Dialectic (which is really the Machiavellian idea of supporting both sides, pitting 2 opposites against each other as the Obscurantists always do, although Macchiavelli himself was opposed to such practices) to engineer society toward their "New World Order,"  which is really the old world order of barbarism but framed as a global tyrany.

The Rothschilds and their associates, such as the Rockefellers, have been engineering America and its foreign policy almost since its inception. They and their Skull and Bones Wall Street partners staged and funded WWII (they also funded WW1), from which was born their infant global government, the United Nations, and their tool of tyrany,  the CIA. The father of the CIA, “Wild Bill” Donovan, was a Knight of Malta. In order to be a CIA director you must be a  Knight of Malta and it doesn’t hurt if you are a member of Skull and Bones, either. In order to reach the highest levels in the Pentagon establishment, you must be an "illuminated" Freemason and/or a Knight of one Obscurantist order or another. Notable US military members of SMOM (Sovereign Military Order of Malta)  include top  generals such as Alexander Haig, William Westmoreland, and Charles Willoughby, an admitted fascist.

Other notable members include:

Reinhard Gehlen (Nazi war criminal)
Heinrich Himmler (Nazi war criminal)
Kurt Waldheim (Nazi war criminal)
Franz von Papen (Hitler enabler)
Fritz Thyssen (Hitler’s financier)
Rupert Murdoch
Tony Blair
Pat Buchanan
William F. Buckley, Jr.
Prescott Bush, Jr.
Edward Egan (Archbishop of NY)
Licio Gelli
Ted Kennedy
David Rockefeller
Phyllis Schlafly (Dame)
J. Edgar Hoover
Joseph Kennedy
Henry Luce
Thomas ‘Tip’ O’Neill
Ronald Reagan
Giscard d’Estaing
Allen Dulles
Avery Dulles
Frank Carlucci
Nelson Mandela
Rick Santorum
Juan Carlos (King of Spain and Jerusalem)
Oliver North
George  Bush, Sr.
Augusto Pinochet
William Randolph Hearst
Francis Kellogg

And they continue, "Such a list should make you sit up and take notice but it is only the tip of the iceberg, unfortunately. Then we come to another SMOM member, important to what is transpiring in Iraq. Educated at the Jesuit Georgetown University, former Pentagon Inspector General Joseph Edward Schmitz, Blackwater’s operations chief, is a member of both SMOM and Opus Dei."

Jim Marrs (Rule By Secrecy) includes the following as modern Americans connected to the cult: CIA directors Wm. Casey and John McCone, Chrysler Chairman Lee Iacocca, Wm. Buckley, Joseph P. Kennedy, US ambasador to the Vatican Wm. Wilson, Claire Boothe-Luce, and Alexander Haig. He notes that Luigi Gedda, head of  Catholic Action was decorated by the cult for his liaison work between the Vatican, the CIA. and Joseph Rettinger's European Movement. And Rettinger is the Father of the Bilderbergers (see below). The group is today headquartered in Rome under the direct supervision of the pope and  a British and Protestant offshoot, Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, is headquartered in London (Rule by Secrecy).

Knights of Pythias

This is a very Masonic group and  includes many  Freemasons.  The following list is from Wikipedia.

Hugo Black, U.S. Supreme Court Justice
William Jennings Bryan - U.S. Senator from Nebraska
Benjamin Cardozo U.S. Supreme Court Justice
Warren Harding - U.S. President 
Hubert  Humphrey - U.S. Vice President 
William McKinley - U.S. President 
Nelson  Rockefeller - U.S. Vice President
Joe Rollins - Houston lawyer
Franklin Roosevelt - U.S. President
Sun Ra - jazz musician, composer,  band leader
Lew Wallace - general, author, diplomat
Charles Schumer- U.S. Senator
Robert Byrd- U.S. Senator
Anthony Weiner- U.S. Congressman
Peter  King- U.S. Congressman
Freddy Martin - band leader

Opus Dei ("God's Work")
 
Contraversies surrounding this group,   known formally as the Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei,  concern its secrecy,  recruiting methods,  strict rules governing its members,  acknowledged practice by celibate members of masochism,  elitism,  misogyny, and  participation by some in authoritarian,  extreme right-wing governments, especially the now defunct fascista government of Franco. Within the Catholic Church, it  is also criticized for  seeking independence and more influence. In recent years, the group has received international attention due to the novel The Da Vinci Code and its film version of 2006 (both of which many prominent Catholics in and outside the  clergy protested as misleadingly inaccurate and strongly anti-Catholic)and accusations from the truth movement of being  connected to the Obscurantists (Wikipedia-Opus Dei).

Skull and Bones
 
This is a fraternity founded at Yale in 1832, aka the Brotherhood of Death and Chapter 322, and is a powerful  chapter of the Bavarian Obscurantists  and famous members are the Bushes, the Buckleys, the Bundys,  John Kerry (real name John Kohn, Judaic), Dean Acheson, President Taft (son of 1 of the founders), Averill Harriman, Henry Luce, and Percy Rockefeller (America's Secret Establishment: an Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones,   Anthony Sutton, 2004; Fleshing Out Skull and Bones: Investigations into America's Most Powerful Secret Society, Kris Millegan, ed., 2003;  Who's Who in the Elite, R.G. Ross). 
  
Bill Cooper wrote  "...Members of the Order (Skull and Bones) take an oath that absolves them from any allegiance to any nation or king or government or constitution, and that includes the negating of any subsequent oath which they may be required to take. They swear allegiance only to the Order and its goal of a New World Order...according to the oath Bush took when he was initiated into Skull and Bones, his oath of office as President of the United States means nothing" (Bill Cooper, Behold A Pale Horse, p. 81-82). 
 
Ron Rosenbaum,  in his article for Esquire, "The Last Secrets of Skull and Bones" (Sept., 1977),  says "The power of Bones is incredible. They have their hands on every lever of power in the country."   He found definite links between S n B and the Bavarian Obscurantists discovering documents which detailed the origins of S n B in Germany, stating  "Bones is a chapter of a corps of a German university..." and describing at length its relationship with this German secret society which lead to its founding in 1832.

He also discovered "above the arched walls above the vault of the (Bones) sacred room, #322", is a painting of skulls surrounded by Masonic symbols. And he found a "haunting photograph of the altar room at one of the Masonic lodges at Nuremberg that is closely associated with Obscurantism, haunting because at the altar room's center, approached through an aisle of hanging human skeletons, is a coffin surmounted by a skull and crossbones that look exactly like the particular arrangement in the S n B emblem." As well, they were the official crest of another key Obscurantist lodge. Note that Nazi death camp guards wore this emblem  on the shoulders of their uniforms. It was also the emblem of the Knights Templar and pirates, who were really sea-faring terrorists glorified by Hollywood. The symbols, a German slogan, and the lay-out of the initiation room all are similar to the Masonic lodges in Germany associated with the Obscurantists.

And as Rosenbaum states, anyone in the Eastern U.S. left-wing Establishment almost certainly belongs to S n B or one of the other secret fraternities.  These include the  Ivy Club and Cottage Club at Princeton, members including Aaron Burr and the Dulleses,  the Porcelian Club at Harvard, to which Teddy Roosevelt belonged,  the Fly Club, to which Franklin Roosevelt belonged, and Wolf's Head and Scroll and Key also at Yale (George Bush: the Unauthorized Biography, W. G. Tarpley and Anton Chaitkin, Executive Intelligence Review, 1992). 

Tarpley and Chaitkin affirm that the background to S n B is one of opium and empire (Russell's cousin Samuel was an integral part of the British-inspired Opium Wars in China) and a bitter struggle over control of the young U.S. republic. They also state that the 20th century "owes much of its record of horrors to the influential Anglophile American families which came to dominate and employ the Skull and Bones Society as a political recruitment agency..." Some researchers say it is the epicenter of NWO control and it has been called a stepping stone to the CFR, the BB group, and the TC (for these 3 see the section Committee of 300 below).

Ties between the CIA and S n B are considerable. Members include Director George Bush, Sr., Personnel Director Trubee Davison, Beirut Station Chief James Buckley, Deputy Directors for Plans Hugh Cunningham and Richard Bissell, William Bundy, and poet Archibald MacLeish who helped the OSS's William Donovan form the agency in 1947.

Ron Rosenbaum was born in 1946 to a Judaic family  in New York City, graduated from Yale  in 1968,  and won a Carnegie Fellowship to attend Yale's graduate program in English Literature, though he dropped out after taking only 1 course. He wrote for the The Village Voice, Esquire, Harper's, High Times, Vanity Fair, New York Times Magazine, New York Observer, and Slate. He also authored the acclaimed book Explaining Hitler in 1998 after more than 10 years of research (Wikipedia).

Federal Reserve Board

As explained in many books, the Federal Reserve was set up in 1913, and as Mullins writes, "Not withstanding the war of independence against England we remained an economic and financial colony of Great Britain" (see The 13 Bloodlines below). Between 1865 and 1913 London-based Rothschild bankers used agents such as J.P. Morgan and J.D. Rockefeller to gain control of American industry and organized it into cartels. The election was rigged so Wilson would win and the Owen-Glass Bill was passed just in time for the US to finance WW I as the European powers were not able to. As Lindbergh, a Freemason himself,  said, "This act establishes the most gigantic trust (read "cartel") on Earth. When the president signs this bill the invisible government that is the Monetary Power will be legalized"(the Illuminati: the Cult that Hijacked the World, Henry Makov (PhD), Book Surge, 2008; Secrets of the Federal Reserve,  Eustace Mullins,  John McLaughlin Pblg,  1993, 208 pp.; the Creature from Jekyll Island: a 2nd Look at the Federal Reserve, 4th ed., G. Edward Griffin, Amer Media, 2002, 608 pp.; etc.).   Notice the term "invisible government," and there is his quote from the Original Dissent website, "From now on, depressions will be scientifically created." 

Here is the Amazon Product Description for Secrets of the Federal Reserve with the author profile.

"Mullins presents some bare facts about the Federal Reserve System saying: it IS NOT a U.S. government bank; it IS NOT controlled by Congress; it IS a privately owned Central Bank controlled by the elite financiers in their own interest. The Federal Reserve elite controls excessive interest rates, inflation, the printing of paper money, and have taken control over depression and prosperity in the United States.

Eustace Mullins is a veteran of the United States Air Force, with thirty-eight months active service during World War II. A native of Virginia, he was educated at Washington and Lee University, New York University, the University of North Dakota, the Escuelas des Bellas Artes, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Washington, D.C. The original book, published under the title "Mullins on the Federal Reserve", was commissioned by the poet Ezra Pound in 1948. Ezra Pound was a political prisoner for thirteen and a half years at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Washington, D.C. (a Federal institution for the insane). His release was accomplished largely through the efforts of Mr. Mullins. "

"The Order of the Garter is the secret inner circle which is an elite group within the Order of St. John of Jerusalem which is the British part of the Knights of Malta. The Knights of the Garter are the leaders of the Committee of 300...Queen Elizabeth is the head of the Order of the Garter" (from J. Coleman, Biblioteca Pléyades).

And there's this about Permindex (Permanent Industries Exposition):

"Permindex was implicated in the financing of the 1962 Organisation de l'armée secrète (OAS) assassination attempt on French President Charles De Gaulle. Guy Banister, in 1962, dispatched an associate, Maurice Brooks Gatlin - legal counsel of Banister's "Anti-Communist League of the Caribbean", to Paris to deliver a suitcase containing $200,000 for the OAS. The source of the funds was the Bank Hapoalim owned by the Histadrut and they were channeled into Banque du Credit Internationale accounts maintained by Permindex. Canadian Louis Bloomfield was the head of Permindex, head of FBI Division Five and leading fund raiser for Histadrut in Canada (Wikipedia)...Following this investigation and accusations by the Italian Press that Permindex was a cover for CIA espionage in Italy the Italian government expelled Permindex in 1962 for subversive activities "(Wikipedia). It was also implicated in the JFK murder.

The Tavistock Intitute (of Human Relations) was founded in 1946, when it split from the Tavistock Clinic,  by several key figures of this same clinic, the British center for psychoanalysis,  and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation (Wikipedia).  There is yet more hypocrisy in that one of these founders, Ronald Hargreaves,  went on to become director of the WHO and another, Brigadier Rees,  became  head of the World Federation for Mental Health (Wikipedia). Among those associated with the group were Karl Jung,  who had supported the Nazi party (Ideas bio, CBC Radio), and R. D. Laing, who did not even see schizophrenia as a mental disorder, but to his credit recognized that  psychiatry was "sometimes coldly inhuman" (Beneath the Mask, Christopher Monte, 1995, Harcourt-Brace).  
 
An especially excellent article is Tavistock: The Best Kept Secret in America,  Byron  Weeks, MD,  2001 - educate-yourself and bibliotecapléyades. The following is an excerpt:

"A single common denominator identifies the  Tavistock strategy--the use of drugs. The infamous MK Ultra program of the CIA, in which unsuspecting CIA officials were given LSD, and their reaction studied like "guinea pigs", resulted in several deaths. The U.S. government had to pay millions in damages to the families of the victims, but the culprits were never indicted. The program originated when Sandoz AG, a Swiss drug firm, owned by S.G. Warburg Co. of London, developed lysergic acid. Roosevelt's advisor, James Paul Warburg, son of Paul Warburg who wrote the Federal Reserve Act, and nephew of Max Warburg who had financed Hitler, set up the Institute for Policy Studies to promote the drug. The result was the LSD "counter-culture" of the 1960s, the "student revolution", which was financed by $25 million from the CIA."

German psychiatrist Kurt Lewin, who became director of the  Tavistock Clinic in 1932, developed the thinking behind mass mind control. In the book "Mind Control, World Control" (1997) Jim Keith writes: "Lewin is credited with much of the original Tavistock research into mass brainwashing applying the results of repeated trauma and torture (of individuals) in mind control to society at large. If terror can be induced on a widespread basis into a society, Lewin has stated, then society reverts to a tabula rasa, a blank slate, a situation where control can easily be instituted from an external point. Put another way: By the creation of controlled chaos, the populace can be brought to the point where it willingly submits to greater control. Lewin maintained that society must be driven into a state equivalent to an 'early childhood situation.' He termed this "societal chaos fluidity" (p. 44).
 
Keith cites another Tavistock researcher, Dr. William Sargent, author of "Battle for the Mind: A Physiology of Conversion and Brain-Washing" (1957): "Various types of beliefs can be implanted after brain function has been sufficiently disturbed by...deliberately induced fear, anger, or excitement" (p. 48). Most political and cultural events are contrived by the cryptocracy (demonocracy) for their psychological effect. This is why JFK was murdered in full public view.
 
According to covertmatrix.atspace.com/tavistock, "Tavistock Institute has developed such power in the USA, that no one achieves prominence in any field unless he has been trained in behavioral science at Tavistock, or one of its subsidiaries." Churchill stated, “In wartime, the truth is so precious that it should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.” Hitler stated, “In wartime, we provide truth with a bodyguard of lies because it is so precious.” The Tavistock Military Psych-Ops War School training line is “In wartime, the truth is so precious we surround it with a bodyguard of lies”(debattsentralen).

For a chart of the Committee of 300's agencies see "Committee of 300 aka the Olympians" (Biblioteca Pléyades). These include the Trilateral Commission, the CFR, IISS, Aspen Inst., US NRO, MI6, Permindex, RIIA, Bilderberg, Round Table, ADL, Dutchey Foundation, UCS, CIIA (Canadian Institute for International Affairs, re-formed as the Canadian Council), and Tavistock, which in turn controls IPS, MIT, Brookings, NTL, Wharton, ISR, PIAS, SRI, Harvard, Rand, Club of Rome, and the Star Group which contols HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), which has been implicated in mind control ("Angels Don't Play This HAARP", Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning; Mind Contol, World Control, Jim Keith, Adventures Unlimited, 1998, 228 pp.; HAARP, Jerry Smith, Adventures Unlimited, 1998, 256 pp.), and natural disasters (Théories du complot-Wikipédia) such as Hurricane Katrina (by American meteorologist Scott Stevens), the Dec. '99 storms in Europe, the Haiti earthquake of 2010, Russian forest fires (by Russian scientists Guergui Vasiliev of the U. of Moscow and Andrei Areshev of the Stratgic Culture Foundation (Russian Scientists Accuse the US of Provoking the Heat Waves Sweeping the Country Using Weather Weapons-globalcrisisnews.com, 2010)), and the floods in China in 2010. (See also School Shootings).

The following is from the  Educate-Yourself website concerning Conspiratorial Heirarchy-Committee of 300:

"Dr. John Coleman is a former intelligence agent of British MI6. He rips the lid off the conspiratorial group which knows NO national boundaries, is ABOVE the law of ALL countries and controls every aspect of politics, commerce, religion, industry, banking, insurance, mining, and even the drug trade. Learn how this small elite group who are answerable to NO ONE, except its members, have pulled the strings on ALL major world events and why, until now, few people have even been aware of its existence, let alone power, in manipulating the affairs of the entire WORLD. All of these members are revealed, including all of the corporations, government agencies and various movements which "they" have developed and control to further their own aims for WORLD DOMINATION." (capitals in the original )

Kissinger is a member of the Committee (Conspiracy  Hierarchy-Past and present members-Biblioteca Pléyades) and is also a Freemason, and a member of the Rand Corporation, the TC, the CFR, and the BB (Bilderberg) Group.

Prince Bernhard founded the BB Group and had been an SS officer (Project Camelot interview with Joseph Farrell; presumably this is also in Nazi International; Rule by Secrecy, Jim Marrs, HarperCollins, 2000). For information on the BB Group  there is the True Story of the Bilderberg Group, 2nd ed., Daniel Estulin, Trine Day Books, 2009, 432 pp. The following is a description from Amazon.

"Delving into a world once shrouded in complete mystery and impenetrable security, this investigative report provides a fascinating account of the annual meetings of the world’s most powerful people—the Bilderberg Group. Since its inception in 1954 at the Bilderberg Hotel in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeek, the Bilderberg Group has been comprised of European prime ministers, American presidents, and the wealthiest CEOs of the world, all coming together to discuss the economic and political future of humanity. The working press has never been allowed to attend, nor have statements ever been released on the attendees' conclusions or discussions, which have ramifications on the citizens of the world. Using methods that resemble the spy tactics of the Cold War—and in several instances putting his own life on the line—the author did what no one else has managed to achieve: he learned what was being said behind the closed doors of the opulent hotels and has made it available to the public. This second edition includes an entirely new chapter and updated information on topics such as an earlier attempt to break up Canada and the portents of a North American union.

Daniel Estulin is an award-winning investigative journalist and has been researching the Bilderberg Group for more than 14 years. He is the host of two radio shows in Spain."

The  TC (the "Trilateral" refers to the membership: US, Europe, and Japan) has come under much scrutiny and criticism from political activists and  social scientists. President Jimmy Carter appointed 26 former Commission members to senior positions in his administration. Later it was revealed that Carter himself was a former Trilateral member. In the 1980 election, it was discovered that Carter and his two major opponents, John Anderson and George  Bush Sr., were also members, and the Commission became a campaign issue. Ronald Reagan  was not a member, but after he was chosen as Republican nominee he chose Bush as his running mate and as president he appointed a few Trilateral members to cabinet positions and held a reception for the Commission in the White House in 1984.
 
In 1980, Holly Sklar released a book titled Trilateralism: the Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management
(South End Press). Miss Sklar is an author and syndicated columnist, policy analyst, and strategist whose articles have appeared in hundreds of newspapers and online outlets as well as The Nation and other publications.

Trudeau was Jesuit-educated  (at the prestigious Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf),  admired Salazar and Franco,  was a statist and  totalitarian, supporting fascism in his youth and communism later on, and  had a reputation  for having a bad character (Pierre Trudeau-Wikipedia; Trudeau Revealed, David Sommerville). Not surprisingly, he was also  a Bilderberger (Who's Who of the Elite, R.G. Ross, Jr., 1986, RIE).  
 
His Whig analog in Quebec, Premier Robert Bourassa, was also a Bilderberger (Who's Who of the Elite) so it comes as no surprise that he brought in the infamous Bill 22, which was a discriminatory and prejudiced language law. So was Jeanne Sauvé, a former Governor-General of Canada, who said in a radio interview that she wanted a wall around Canada to keep out American influence. And there is also Nobel-laureate John Polanyi, who is a member of Pugwash, a so-called peace group, co-founded by Bertrand Russell (John Polanyi and Pugwash-Wikipedia) who was otherwise involved in the Obscuranti (see Obscuranti Numbers and Symbols below).

The CFR has some 3200 members (Everything is Under Control: Conspiracies, Cults, and Cover-Ups, R.A. Wilson, Harper-Perrenial, 1994, p. 129). Some past or present members of the CFR include Averell Harriman, Allen Dulles, George Bush, Sr., Dick Cheney, Allen Greenspan, Harold Brown, Wm. Bundy, Zbigniew Brzeninski, John McCain, Bill Moyers (NBC broadcaster), Wesley Clark (real name: Kanne, Judaic descent), and Cyrus Vance (Who's Who in the Elite). Every US administration has been packed with CFR members since its formation; according to published reports the Clinton administration  was top heavy with CFR members having some 100 (Rule by Secrecy).

The TC and BB have an interlocking leadership just like many large corporations controlled by the Rockefellers through this very method (Rule by Secrecy). And the BB is a sort of CFR expanded to an international scale.

Members of all 3, the TC, CFR, and BB, the Big 3 we might call them, all of which hold secret annual meetings, include Bill Clinton,  Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Winston Lord, and Walter Mondale (Who's Who in the Elite), etc.

The Round Table is  a secret society that was established  by Cecil Rhodes in 1891 patterned after Freemasonry (with an inner Circle of Initiates and an outer Association of Helpers) (Gods of Eden, p. 333). Concentration camps were invented by Kitchener under Rhodes in the Boer War where there was a democide of some 20,000 people (Gods of Eden, p. 333).

Here is  the Abe synopsis for Rule by Secrecy: The Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids,  Jim Marrs, Harper, 2001, 465 pp.).

"Set aside your preconceptions of the world, of what you've read in your history textbooks, and what you see and hear from the mainstream media. Jim Marrs, award-winning journalist and author of Alien Agenda and the New York Times bestseller Crossfire, is about to change your perspective, as he unmasks the hidden masters of history and religion.

In Rule by Secrecy, Marrs painstakingly examines the world's most closely guarded secrets, tracing the history of secret societies and the power they have wielded, from the ancient mysteries to modern-day conspiracy theories. Searching for truth, he uncovers disturbing evidence that the real movers and shakers of the world collude to start and stop wars, manipulate stock markets and interest rates, maintain class distinctions, and even censor the six o'clock news. And they do this under the auspices of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, the CIA, and even the Vatican. According to Marrs, the power of these groups extends as far back as humankind's prehistory. Drawing on historical evidence and his own impeccable research, Marrs clearly traces the mysteries that connect these modern-day secret societies to the Freemasons, the Illuminati, the Knights Templar, and Egypt's Great Pyramids. The result is a masterful synthesis of historical information, much of it long hidden from the public, that sheds light on the people and organizations that rule our lives.

Disturbing, thought-provoking, and utterly compelling, Rule by Secrecy offers a provocative worldview that may explain who we are, where we came from, and where we're going."

It must be noted that  Marrs says that the Bavarian Obscurantists were rationalist and humanist, but they were definitely neither and these were just cover/front  ideologies just as "pacifism" and women's rights are just covers and fronts for the "peace" movement and feminism, respectively. Also, he says that anti-communism was responsible for all the tragedy of the 20th century (p. 193), quotes heavily from David Icke, the worst of the infiltrators, takes jabs at anti-Masonry, does not denounce the anti-truth movement, is ambiguous about the existence of secret societies and conspiracies (the Introduction is different from the body of the book), and has written for Disinformation Press.

The following is a description for Leavitt's "Illuminati."

 The "Illuminati" - Aric Leavitt - 200 pp. -  1994 (from freedom domain)
     "Includes information about earlier days of secret society corruption, the creation of world wars by the private banks, banking in general, including, of course, the Rothschilds and the Federal Reserve system. Also discussed is Skull and Bones, the super-powerful secret society at Yale and their influence in areas of American and world politics. A lot of good resource material is used and everything is very well organized. Current information about mind and population control is discussed along with the idea that "alien abductions" might be covert CIA mind control operations, and the possible propagation of a "New Age Religion". Includes in the Appendix, The "Regionalized & Adaptive Model of the Global World System": Strategy for Survival Project of  The "Club of Rome", Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations lists for George Bush and Bill Clinton's cabinets and media, military, banking, and education appointments. By far, one of the best all around informing books on American history, secret societies, and the overall world plan."

The Satanic Aspect

There is a close connection between Freemasonry, Egypt, and Satanism as evidenced from The Egyptian Masonic-Satanic Connection  by David and Donna Carrico, self-published by Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries (also on the  SMART web site). The authors have been ministering as Followers of Jesus Christ, an anti-cult ministry since 1984. Together they have researched and written several books including College Fraternities - the Secret Society on Campus. David Carrico has been a guest and host of several radio programs including Christian, secular, and short wave. Donna has been a guest speaker at the Criminal Justice class at Indiana University and Women’s Aglow groups.

Topics covered include  mystery religions,  Freemasonry and human sacrifice, Aliester Crowley, and ritual abuse. The section on Egyptian Satanism documents and lists the practices of the ancient Egyptian religion making readily apparent their Satanic nature. The rites are taken mostly from the Book of the Dead and are compared to pictures drawn by  child survivors of ritual child abuse. Along with other documentation the book establishes the Egyptian influence on modern Satanism. The authors remind us of the words of Manly Hall, 33rd degree Freemason, “the Book of the Dead is the open sesame of symbolic Masonry.” They say it is graphic so I do not recommend reading it but it serves as strong evidence in my thesis.

The Satanic aspect of inner circle Freemasonry is also evidenced by symbols, especially the devil hand sign,  Sabbatianism (connected to the Bavarian Obscurantists founded by Freemason Adam Weishaupt in 1776 (Adam Weishaupt-Human Devil by Gerard Winrod; "Adam Weishaupt and the "Illuminati" -the Ideological Background of the 'Illuminati' ",which is an excerpt from Juri Lina's "Under the Sign of the Scorpion-the Rise and Fall of the Soviet Union," p. 22-28), Albert Pike (addressing the 23 Supreme Councils of the world on July 14, 1889: "To you, Sovereign Grand Instructors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees: 'the Masonic Religion should be,  by all of us initiates of the high degrees,  maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine. . ." (biblebelievers-Initial List of Freemasons)), rituals (initiation rites are a system that gradually realigns the members' religious beliefs  from Christianity to Satanism (NWO: the Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, Wm. Still, 1990, Huntington House), Alister Crowley (Satanist and Freemason), former Satanist Doc Maquis, and the Lucis Trust,  a New Age group, which was formerly the Luciferan Publishing Co. (p. 262, Rule By Secrecy).

Freemasons apparently have 2 gods, one good (Lucifer) and one bad (Adonai), and believe in the dual nature of God  (NWO, Epperson), however, the distinction is shaky as Luciferians believe they are doing good (even though they are doing evil), and Satanists know they are evil (NWO, Still).

Families of the Obscurantists

The 13 families, or bloodlines, of the Obscurantist are the following (Bloodlines of the Illuminati, Fritz Springmeier, Ambassador House, 1998 and 2007, 600 pp., Top 13 Bloodlines, 1995,  and bibliotecapléyades):

  Astor
  Bundy
  Collins
  DuPont
  Freeman
  Kennedy
  Li
 Onassis
 Reynolds
 Rockefeller
 Rothschild
 Russell
 Van Duyn

There are also the Merovingians, a Frankish dynasty of ancient Gaul,  and the Black Nobility,  which goes back to the medieval Guelph papal faction.

Fritz Springmeier is a religious Christian writer who had been jailed on silly, trumped up charges ( "planning to rob banks") because of his exposés. He can be seen on Video Google speaking on these families.

NBC's Early Show (You Tube) demonstrated the family relatedness of Count Vlad (Dracula) II the Impaler (the most sadistic tyrant in history, but not having as high a corpse count as 20th century tyrants only because of a lack of 20th century technology, appropriately providing the name and forming the basis for the Bram Stoker character), Pocahontas, Abe Lincoln,  the Bushes, Dick Cheney, John Kerry, Barack Obama,  Hugh Hefner, Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Celine Dion, Brad Pitt, and Tom Hanks. In fact, most American presidents are interrelated and also  kin to British royalty so the American presidency  is a continuation of it.

The following list is adapted from Wikipedia.

descended from Edward I of England

James Madison
Grover Cleveland
William Henry Harrison and his grandson, Benjamin Harrison
Zachary Taylor
William Taft
Gerald Ford
George Bush and his son, George Jr.
Barack Obama (also from William the Lion of Scotland)

descended from Edward III of England

John Quincy Adams 
George Washington
Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt

Franklin Pierce (descendant of Henry I of England )
Calvin Coolidge (descendant of Henry II of England)
Rutherford Hayes (descendant of David I of Scotland)
Warren Harding (descendant of Ethelred II of England)
Herbert Hoover (descendant of John of England)

"As a result, all of the listed people are direct descendants of Alfred the Great. All but two of them, Rutherford Hayes and Warren Harding, are also descended from William I of England. It should be noted that all of these royal ancestors were born before the Black Death killed much of the population of Britain in 1349. In addition, Queen Elizabeth II is among the closest living relatives of George Washington, through their descent from Augustus Warner, Burgess of Virginia." And QE II is head of the C of 300 (Committee of 300 aka the Olympians- John Coleman in Biblioteca Pléyades).

 presidents related to Irish royalty

John F. Kennedy (descendant of Brian Boru)
Andrew Jackson (descendant of Dermot MacMurrough)
George Washington (descendant of Dermot MacMurrough)

Most presidents are interrelated so, for example, Obama is related to the Bushes, LBJ, Truman, and Madison. The Bushes are related to Obama, the Roosevelts, Nixon, Ford, Hoover, Lincoln, Grant, Cleveland,  Taft, Coolidge, Pierce, Filmore, Garfield, and Hayes (List of US Presidents by geneological relationship-Wikipedia).  One can see there is no democracy as it is really all in the family.

People might think of Obama, said by some to be a 33rd degree (the top rank in the Scottish Rite) Freemason himself, which is probably true, as a great leader and a refreshing change but he is, in fact, a continuation of the Obscurantist agenda but in a different guise.  The Anti-Christ Identity Report by international author and reseacher Mel Sanger, MSc.,  available only on-line, based on 5000 hrs. of footage and 3000 pieces of documentation assessed by his research team,  exposes Obama for what he really is. And there is the excellent film everyone should  see, The Obama Deception (available on You Tube, parts 1-12 and on Dprogram (Alex Jones is the one behind the film but it should be noted that he is a Jesuit and working for the Obscurantists (see Infiltrators and Controlled Opposition)). Notice, also, that he has (as of May, '09) transferred most of the inmates of Guantanamo to the US and intends to set up a legitimate framework for their continued incarceration which is exactly what George Bush did.  The Obama Timeline: from his Birth in 1961 to his 1st 100 days in Office ( Don Frederick, iUniverse, 2009, 660 pp.) reveals the grave doubt there is about his birthplace which may well be Africa so that legally and officially he is not even qualified to be President since this position is limited to those born on US soil (and to those who are Obscurantists, by the way) and that his birth documents were faked and that he associated with the some of the most perverse people. See also Michele Malkin's Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies (Regency Press, 2009).

Infiltrators and Controlled Opposition

The Obscurantists likes to control both sides so it can control the ultimate outcome (Majesty 12-Wm. Cooper ) and uses the tactic of "controlled opposition" (Chris White-Revere Radio) showing its hypocrisy but also its Macchiavelian manipulative intents. But it comes at  a price because it makes people more aware of them. It does the same in the UFO debate, infiltrating and controlling ufology and the UFO movement with disinformation agents, cover-up agents, double agents, and pseudoskeptics, and also controls the skeptics--in fact, most, or at least many,  well-known ufologists and skeptics are Obscurantists.  It is, though,  a very irrational policy that works against them as much or more than for them but these are not rational people.

Here are the major infiltrators:

Alex Jones (Cloak and Dagger-Exposing Alex Jones on You Tube)
Jordan Maxwell (Debunking Jordan Maxwell and William Cooper Debunks Jordan Maxwell on YouTube)
Michael Tsarion (Michael Tsarion, Rosicrucian on You Tube)
David Icke (New Ager and UFO extremist)
Richard Hoagland
Alan Watts
Jim Marrs?
Peter Levenda?

The evidence for Alex Jones is as follows:
 
 his association with the Sheens who are Jesuits (the name Sheen was changed from Estevez and is for Bishop Sheen).
 his avoidance of criticizing the Jesuits
 support of Pat Buchanan, a Jesuit
 access to Bohemian Grove, an Obscurantist stronghold
 heckling the President would normally get someone arrested but he was only escorted from the building
 (Spiritually Smart and Cloak and Dagger web sites)

Richard Hoagland promotes Freemasonry and grossly misrepresents it (Government Secrets-What Obama Knows About 2012 on You Tube). This may be a change in strategy, perhaps an attempt to rehabilitate the bad but accurate Freemason reputation and image, instead of shooting themselves in the foot by opposing themselves. He also opposes security, and promotes bizarre concepts such as "conscious ships", reincarnation, and the pseudoscientific "hyperdimensional physics" (see final part of Secret Space Program on YouTube),  makes predictions which don't pan out (especially concerning Comet Elenin) (see Red Ice interview on You Tube), and promotes the NWO.  As well,  he committed abuses against one Gary Leggiere, a former fellow researcher, is guilty of lying and suppressing information (specifically images of faces on Mars), and  has banned his co-author Michael Bara from his Enterprise website, because the latter dared to question him (see Richard Hoagland's Dark Mission, Lies, and Cover-Up at pakalert.com).

Peter Levenda is strongly in favour of Freemasonry, slings mud at people who oppose it, and excuses and rationalizes its techniques which he himself says are the same as those of the CIA.
 
the Nazi Connection

It is a matter of historical and public record that Operation Paperclip brought over many Nazis to North America, as well as Latin America, where they proceded to infiltrate and control many government agencies including NASA (Rise of the 4th Reich, Jim Marrs; Joseph Farrell's Nazi books; Dark Mission, Richard Hoagland and Michael Bara). Also, Hitler's 2nd book was "New World Order,"  and most or many Nazis were Obscurantists and vice-versa,  and the same is true today. There are also the ties between the Nazis and the Bushes (John Buchanan, investigative journalist, New Hampshire Gazette; How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power -The Guardian.co.uk, 2004). George Bush, Sr.,  uttered the phrase "New World Order" in a 1991 speech.  Madonna's Evita (Eva Peron), was a Nazi and wife of a Nazi, Juan Peron, President of Argentina, who allowed the Rat-Line, which carried Nazis from the defeated Reich to the Americas. As Joseph Farrell and Jim Marrs point out, the post-war Nazis were highly organized and well-funded, their money having come largely from looting European treasures, and, not at all surpringly,  Nazis are behind the creation, funding, and training of Arab terror groups (Nazi International, Joseph Farrell).

Here is the Amazon description for Rise of the 4th Reich ( Jim Marrs, Wm. Morrow Pblg.,  2008, 448 pp.):

"While the United States helped defeat the Germans in World War II, we failed to defeat the Nazis. At the end of the war, ranking Nazis, along with their young and fanatical protégés, used the loot of Europe to create corporate front companies in many countries, including the United States of America. Utilizing their stolen wealth, men with Nazi backgrounds and mentalities wormed their way into corporate America, slowly buying up and consolidating companies into giant multinational conglomerates. Many thousands of other Nazis came to the United States under classified programs such as Project Paperclip. They brought with them miraculous weapon technology that helped win the space race but they also brought their insidious Nazi philosophy within our borders."

Here is an Amazon customer  review of Nazi International (2008, 413 pp., Adventures Unlimited):

"He covers the migration of Nazis to South America and other places, and spends a large part of the book looking at the financial and political threads that indicate the heavy influence of the Nazis, even to this day. An interesting revelation is how important Nazis such as Otto Skorzeny were to the creation and training of our current nemesis, Arab terrorism."

The secret society most closely associated with National Socialism was the Thule Society. It was originally the  Studien Gruppe für germanisches Altertum (Study Group for German Antiquity) headed by Walter Nauhaus, who was with  the Germanen Orden, a secret society founded in 1911 by several prominent German occultists and formally named the following year. The Germanen Orden's  symbol was the swastika and it had a  hierarchical fraternal structure similar to Freemasonry. It taught  its initiates nationalist ideologies of Nordic racial superiority, anti-Judaism, and occult philosophies. 
 
In 1917, Nauhaus moved to Munich, and  his Thule Gesellschaft was to be the name for the Munich (German: Munchen) branch of the order, but a split scuttled the plans. In 1918, he was contacted in Munich by Rudolf von Sebottendorf (real name: Rudolf Blauer) who had been schooled in occultism, Islamic mysticism, Rosicrucianism, and much else, in Turkey, where he had also been initiated into Freemasonry, and was newly-elected head of the Bavarian province of the schismatic offshoot, known as the Germanenorden Walvater ("whale father") of the Holy Grail.  The two men became associates in a recruitment campaign, and Sebottendorff adopted Nauhaus's Thule Society as a cover name for his Munich lodge, with Nauhaus's approbation, in the Walvater at its formal dedication in 1918.

Its principle tenet  was that the Aryan race hailed from Thule based on earlier speculation by Ignatius Donnelly, who proposed Atlantis, proposed by Plato, too, as home of the Aryans, an idea he supported by reference to the distribution of swastika motifs, which was further developed by Helena Blavatsky, during the second part of the 1800s. The Thule Gesellschaft maintained close contacts with Theosophists (Theosophy was founded by Blavatsky, Henry Steel Olcott, William Quan Judge, and others,  in 1875).

Thule was a land located by Greco-Roman geographers in the furthest north. The name "Ultima Thule" is also mentioned by the Roman poet Virgil in his epic poem Aeneid. This was supposed to be the far north of Thule and is now generally understood to be Scandinavia. Nazi Obscurantists believed it  to be the capital of ancient Hyperborea,  identifying Ultima Thule as a lost ancient landmass in the extreme north near Greenland or Iceland.

The Thule Society's inner circle beliefs were:

1.Thule was a legendary island in the far north, similar to Atlantis, supposedly the center of a lost, high-level civilization.
2. Not all secrets of that civilization had been wiped out; those that remained were being guarded by ancient, highly intelligent beings (similar to the "Masters" of Theosophy or the White Brotherhood).
3. The truly initiated could establish contact with these beings by means of "magic-mystical" rituals.
4. The "Masters" or "Ancients" allegedly would be able to endow the initiated with supernatural strength and energy.
5. With the help of these energies the goal of the initiated was to create a race of supermen of "Aryan" stock who would exterminate all "inferior" races. 

The order had a strength of about 250 in Munich and some 1,500 in Bavaria in general. Its meetings were often held in the luxury Hotel Vierjahreszeiten ( Four Seasons Hotel) in Munich. The members were, by Sebottendorf's own admission, little interested in his occult ideas, being more concerned with racism and combating Judaics and Communists. But Sebottendorf himself attempted to kidnap the Bavarian socialist premier, Kurt Eisner, in  1918, but failed. After the establishment of the Bavarian Soviet Republic, they were accused of trying to infiltrate its government and of having attempted a coup in 1919, attempt in which the Bavarian Soviet government arrested several members and later executed them.
 
In that same year, the Society bought a local weekly newspaper, the Münchener Beobachter (Munich Observer), and changed its name to Münchener Beobachter und Sportblatt (Munich Observer and Sports Newspaper) in an attempt to improve its circulation,  later becoming the Völkischer Beobachter ( People's Observer), the main National Socialist newspaper. It was edited by Karl Harrer.
 
A movement to promote Thulian ideas among industrial workers and to offset Marxism, was formed in  1918, the Workers' Political Circle, with Thulist Karl Harrer as chairman. In  1919 Anton Drexler, who had developed links between the Thule Society and various extreme right-wing workers' organizations in Munich, together with the Thule Society's Karl Harrer, established the Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (DAP), or German Workers' Party, which was only one of many associations founded and controlled by the Thule Society, including the German Socialist Party, led by Julius Streicher, and the radical rightist  Oberland Free Corps. Streicher  later became a Nazi and is described in the Columbia Desk Encyclopedia (1960 edition) as a sadistic pervert who edited the pornographic and anti-Judaic Der Sturmer and was executed for war crimes at Nuremberg.
 
Hitler joined this party later in the same year and became its most prominent personality causing Harrer to drop out, and  pushing Drexler, the nominal chairman, to the sidelines,   filling key positions with his own friends from the Thule Society and the Army. In 1920, the DAP was reconstituted as the National Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP)( National Socialist German Workers' Party).  Hitler  severed the party's link with the Thule Society, which subsequently fell into decline and was dissolved about five years later.
 
People later prominent in Nazi Germany affiliated to the society were Hans Frank and Rudolf Hess as members and Dietrich Eckart, Gottfried Feder, and Alfred Rosenberg as guests. Eckart groomed Hitler on his public speaking skills and had Mein Kampf dedicated to him.  Hitler apparently was never a member, despite claims to the contrary, as attested to by Johannes Hering's diary of Society meetings. Wikipedia claims Hitler himself had little interest in, and made little time for, secret societies, witness his  1938 speech concerning  his disapproval of them. But Rule by Secrecy paints  a very different picture based on sources which may not be reliable which is Trevor Ravenscroft based in turn largely on a Dr. Stein who claimed to have known Hitler,  but Christoph Lindenberg writing in the German magazine Die Drie says,  "A number of people who intimately knew Walter Stein in the last years of his life state that he never met Hitler." "A number of people" isn't all of them and it refers to only those who knew him in the last years of his life so it might be this piece that isn't reliable. Also, Bramley refers to Ravenscroft and Bramley is very reliable and Wikipedia tends to be orthodox. As well, there are famous pictures of Hitler doing the M (meaning Masonry) sign (Famous Freemasons Exposed, Eric Dubay), meaning he was a Freemason.
 
Some say that the later NSDAP version, was a political front for the order, and indeed the party reflected many of its traits, including its ideology and the swastika,  and the swastika flag was designed by  Thulist Friedrich Krohn.  Obviously the order heavily influenced the 3rd Reich, and its occult elements found favour with Heinrich Himmler who, unlike Hitler, had a great interest in things esoteric, but the Schutzstaffel (SS) under Himmler also took from  the ethos and structure of Ignatius Loyola's Jesuit order even though it was founded by Judaics, and he ran the SS as a secret society, with initiations and the teaching of secret traditions and symbolism (Bramley).
 
An SS occult research department, the Ahnernerbe (Ancestral Heritage), was established in 1935 with SS Colonel Wolfram von Sievers at its head. Occult research took SS researchers as far afield as Tibet. Sievers had the Tantric prayer, the Bardo Thodol, read over his body after his execution at Nuremberg. This ties in to the secret weapons research done by the Nazis with its Bell and  torsion fields elucidated in Farrell's books and Jim Marrs' Rise of the 4th Reich.
 
There is also the rumour of the Vril Society, which allegedly made a flying disc in the '20s, had contacts with space aliens, notably or specifically tall, blue-eyed blondes often encountered in UFO abductions and friendly contacts, and had Nazi members including Hitler. The veracity of this is a matter for further research.
  
Rudolf von Sebottendorff had withdrawn from the Thule Society in 1919, and never joined the DAP nor the later NSDAP, but in 1933 he returned to Germany in the hope of reviving it. In that year he published a book entitled Bevor Hitler kam (Before Hitler Came), in which he claimed that the Thule Society had paved the way for the Führer: "Thulers were the ones to whom Hitler first came, and they were the first to unite themselves with him." This  was not favourably received by the Nazi authorities: after 1933, esoteric organisations (including völkisch (populist) occultists) were suppressed, many closed down by anti-Masonic legislation in 1935. Sebottendorff's book was prohibited and he himself was arrested and imprisoned for a short period in 1934, afterwards departing to a lonely exile in Turkey.
 
As noted in Rule By Secrecy, brothers Max and Paul Warburg, the former an international banker, the latter  instrumental in the setting up of the Federal Reserve System, were directors of IGF (Interessen Gemeinachaft Farbenindustrie, literally, interest community dye industry), a chemical conglomerate that made gas for use in extermination camps. H.A. Metz of IGF was a director of the Warburg Bank of Manhattan which later became part of the Rockefeller Chase Manhattan Bank. Standard Oil of New Jersey had been a cartel partner with IGF prior to the war. An American IGF director, C.E. Mitchell, was director of the Federal Reserve Bank  and Warburg's National City Bank. 24 IGF executives stood trial at Nuremburg for crimes against humanity. Important to note, also, Paul Warburg was a Freemason (see above ) and George Warburg was a Bilderberger (Who's Who in the Elite).
 
There may also be a family connection between the Rothschilds and Hitler as pointed out in Rule By Secrecy. Psychologist Walter Langer,  PhD, had been assigned to do a profile of Hitler by the OSS and reported that a secret pre-war Austrian police report proved Hitler's father was the bastard son of one Maria Anna Schicklgruber, an employee at  Baron Salomon Rothschild's Viennese estate in the 1830s, who later married one J. G. Hiedler, changed to Hitler by accident or to confuse authorities. It is claimed also that Frankenberger was substituted for Rothschild in the records and that no such name was ever found in Vienna and the Baron's sex addiction  was attested to by his biographer and a descendant, Philippe Rothschild.  Langer's source was Koehler's Inside the Gestapo from 1940. Hansjurgen Koehler,  one of Hitler's senior bodyguards,  escaped Nazi Germany in 1938 traveling from country to country as a refugee.  He also claims Austrian Chancellor Dolfuss, who had commisssioned the investigation on the matter, had the documents and Hitler had him assassinated (by 8 SS Regiment 89 officers in the failed July Putsch attempt in 1934, because of this. 2 other possible candidates as the father were J.G. and J.N. Hiedler. Why not a son of the Baron? They were either too young, deceased, or not yet born. Mayer was born in 1827 and lived only a year, Nathaniel was only 1, Ferdinand was born 2 years after the pregnancy, and Albert was born 7 years later (Wikipedia). Certainly, Fraulein Schicklgruber did have an illegitimate son named Alois, Adolf Hitler's father, when she was 42 in 1837 and the baron was 34.
 
Here is a summary from tripatlas:
 
"Most historians surmise that Hitler's father really was Johann Georg Hiedler. An explanation for Hitler being sent to live on his uncle's farm as a child is that Hiedler and Maria were simply too poor to raise Hitler, or could not raise him as well as his uncle, or perhaps Maria's health was in decline (she died when he was 10). Unexplained is why Hiedler and Maria did not declare Hitler their legitimate son once they were legally married, or why Hiedler died without legitimizing his son and perpetuating his line of the family.
 
Historian Werner Maser suggests that Alois's father was Hiedler's brother, Johann Nepomuk, a married farmer who had an affair and then arranged to have his single brother Hiedler marry Hitler's mother Maria to provide a cover for Nepomuk's desire to assist and care for Hitler without upsetting his wife. This assumes Hiedler was willing to marry Maria in this situation, and Adolf Hitler biographer Joachim Fest thinks this is too contrived and unlikely to be true.
 
Alois Hitler may have been influenced to change his name for money. Maser reports that in 1876, Franz Schicklgruber, the administrator of Hitler's mother's estate, transferred a large sum of money (230 gulden) to Hitler. This related to a family decision involving changing Alois' last name from Schicklgruber to Hitler in accordance with his mother's alleged wishes when she died in 1847. Moreover, six months after Nepomuk died, Hitler made a major real estate purchase inconsistent with the salary of a customs official with a pregnant wife. If Adolf Hitler's father was either of the two brothers  makes his son Adolf Hitler's ancestry more incestuous since his mother Klara Pölzl's maternal grandfather was Johann Nepomuk."
 
The idea that wealthy Judaic banker Joseph Frankenberger was the father is even less plausible than the Johann G. or Johann N. suppositions since he was supposed to be in Graz where there were no Judaics and where Fraulein Schicklgruber never was. And the fact that Alois came into money unexpectedly is better explained by the Rothschild theory.
 
Here is the description for Koehler's book from gazellebookservices.
 
"The fascinating first-hand account by a top defector of the ruthlessness, spy intrigues, and curious personalities of the Third Reich. A unique and intimate record, full of surprises, sardonic wit, and tragic endings. "Gestapo tactics": Espionage, intrigue, and subversion. Cunning, cynical, and ruthless in exploiting every human weakness - and murdering anyone who got in the way. Koehler was a special agent working for the top Nazi cop Heydrich, head of the Gestapo, the Secret State Police. He earns his spurs as spying in France, disguised as a Trotskyist refugee, laying the groundwork for Germany to annex these provinces, and matching wits with French and Communist intelligence services. A keen observer and skilful narrator, Koehler reveals how the Gestapo secretly financed and supported the Rumanian Iron Guard and the Spanish Fascists. Then he is sent undercover to a concentration camp to finger a fugitive. What he sees there, and the flogging that puts him in hospital, sows the seeds of his plan to escape. His next mission is to recover "The Fatal File" -- documents showing that Hitler's grandmother became pregnant while working as a maid in the Rothschild mansion in Vienna -- the Austrian chancellor's secret blackmail weapon to hold Nazi Germany at bay. Heydrich advises Koehler to employ a beautiful Countess to inveigle the file -- Austria is disarmed -- and the Wehrmacht marches into Austria. Koehler is then promoted to the detail guarding Hitler's residence in the Alps, and gets his chance to escape to Switzerland, where he writes "Inside the Gestapo". In 1943 the OSS commissioned a psychological profile of Hitler by Walter Langer, who drew on the revelations in this book. In 1972 Langer followed up with The Mind of Adolf Hitler: The Secret Wartime Report, which became a mass-market bestseller."
 
As well,  Langer's brother William was head of the Board of Analysts often referred to as Donovan's "College of Cardinals," and Donovan (head of the OSS and founder of the CIA) was J.P.Morgan's lawyer, who was the American agent for the English Rothschilds and  it is known that Donovan had at least one secret meeting with Hitler in the '20s.
 
If the report  was disinformation it wouldn't have been classified top secret  catching dust for 30 years until it was released  with the Rothschild link downplayed in the introduction as well as in the afterword. In the former, Langer notes the "very intriguing hypothesis," but downplays the Rothschild connection saying it "is sounder not to base our reconstruction on such slim evidence but to seek firmer foundations. Nevertheless, we can leave it as a possibility that requires further verification." The latter  states:

"There is no reason to believe the unlikely story told by Langer's informant that Hitler's grandmother Maria Anna Schicklgruber, a peasant woman in her forties from the Waldviertel of rural Austria, had had an intimate liaison with a Baron Rothschild in Vienna…" and "The point of overriding psychological and historical importance is not whether it is true that Hitler had a Jewish grandfather; but whether he believed that it might be true…"  Either there  was no attempt to verify it or there was and the evidence had already been destroyed.
 
Another aspect concerning Hitler is the cause of the madness. William Bramley in The Gods of Eden states that during World War I around 2 months after winning the Iron Cross in 1916, Hitler was blinded by mustard gas during a battle and was taken to the Pasewalk military hospital in northern Germany where he was "mistakenly" diagnosed as suffering from "psychopathic hysteria" (the symptoms were probably caused by the mustard gas). He was consequently placed under the care of  psychiatrist  Edmund Forster. What exactly was done to him while under  Forster's care is uncertain because years later, in 1933, the Gestapo rounded up all psychiatric records related to Hitler's treatment and destroyed them, and Forster "committed suicide" in that same year, but  according to Hitler, he had experienced a "vision" from "another world" and in that vision, he  was told that he would need to restore his sight so that he could lead Germany back to glory. His latent anti-Judaism, which Bramley says had already been planted by his "mystical" readings in Vienna, emerged at Pasewalk.  Apparently, there is strong evidence that the hatred and histrionics which characterized his speeches after 1918, as well as his fanatical aims, were not in evidence prior to his psychiatric treatment.

There is also a  connection with MK-Ultra. A Dr. Greenberg was allowed to conduct his mind control experiments (on fellow Judaics), was then granted a free ride to the US under Project Paperclip,  and changed his name to Dr. Green while working with Dr. Sidney Gottlieb on   MK Ultra, and  both Cathy O'Brien and Brice Taylor mention him as their "doctor"(forum.prisonplanet).

The Obscurantists and the Near-East

From British Jewry Tried to Stop Zionism by Henry Makov and British Jewry Covets Israel by Barry Chamish on rense.com and "payment" - savethemales.ca, we learn that the Balfour Declaration of 1917 was sponsored by British  non-Judiac, Freemasonic Zionists, that it was over the objections of most of British Jewry, that the Obscurantists saw  Zionism as a way to advance British imperialism and the Freemasonic "New World Order," and that the  establishment of a Judaic homeland in Palestine was partly as payment to Zionists for getting the US into WWI on Britain's side.

Makov states that Judaics historically prefer assimilation. To Cecil Rhodes, "the re-establishment of a Jewish Homeland in Palestine and the organization of the world in a great federation were complementary features in the next step in the management of human affairs..." (Reed, "Controversy of Zion," p. 249). Israel was planned as a Masonic and socialist state.

Georgetown University professor and historian Caroll Quigley, in "The Anglo-American Establishment" (1981), relates how a group of aristocratic families centered on the Cecils has dominated British politics for centuries. They spawned the secret society organized by Cecil Rhodes and Nathan Rothschild in 1891, known as the Round Table and the Milner group, which Rhodes called "a church for the extension of the British Empire."   Its goal was world domination by the British elite and the re-colonization of the US. The "church" was Freemasonry. The politicians that backed Zionism were all high-ranking Freemasons. 

When the British Cabinet issued the Balfour Declaration in 1917, it was over the strenuous objections of its only Judaic member, Edwin Montagu. But non-Judaics, including many anti-Judaics, tipped the scales. They saw Zionism as a way to advance British imperialism and the Freemasonic "New World Order." Montagu, who was the State Secretary for India, told Prime Minister Lloyd George, "All my life I have been trying to get out of the ghetto. You want to force me back there." An assimilated Judaic, Montagu regarded Judaism as only a religion, and viewed Zionism as a "mischievous political creed, untenable by any patriotic citizen of the United Kingdom." Makov states that Judaics historically prefer assimilation.
 
In May 1917, a committee representing the leading Jewish organizations published a statement in the "London Times" saying: "Emancipated Jews... have no separate political aspirations...the establishment of a Jewish nationality in Palestine founded on [the] theory of a Jewish homelessness, must have the effect of stamping the Jews as strangers in their native lands." ("Cousinhood", p.260)
 
The Balfour Declaration promised Judaics a "national home" in Palestine. Partly, it was payment to Zionists for getting the US into WWI on Britain's side. Zionist president Chaim Weismann fumed that Judaic opposition was the main stumbling block to consummating the deal.

Obscurantists and Science

In Stuart England, the  Freemasons were largely scientists and architects and many were members of the Royal Society, the most important scientific association in Britain, and included Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton, Robert Hooke, Christopher Wren, and Samuel Pepys (properly pronounced pep'eez) (Laurance Gardner, Genesis of the Grail King, 1999), among others. For nearly 3 decades, it, Rosicrucianism, and Freemasonry were practically indistinguishable from one another ( The Temple and the Lodge, Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, 1989, Arcade, p. 145). And according to some Masonic writers, the only meaningful difference was that the Royal Society conducted open meetings (Rule by Secrecy). England's 1st recorded initiation of a Freemason was for chemist Robert Moray, who was one of the founders of the society and considered its soul and guiding spirit and was, as well, a patron of the Rosicrucians  (Rule by Secrecy).

Francis Bacon, also of this period, was a Freemason and advanced Masonic ideas  in 2 books, De Sapienta Veterum (Knowledge of the Ancients) and New Atlantis, the latter being a blueprint for the USA (Rule by Secrecy).  The Baconian Circle, led by Walter Raliegh,  made an ill-fated expedition to America, landing on Roanoke Island, NC, in 1584. Raleigh was executed for treason in 1618 by King James I. Many of the subsequent Jamestown colonists led by Capt. John Smith  were Rosicrucian Freemasons and, some have said, relatives of Bacon. The 1st, or 1 of the 1st, revolts in America was led by Nathaniel Bacon, a descendant of Francis. He organized a militia and took over Jamestown (New World Order: the Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, Wm. Still, 1999, Huntington House ). The latter colony was successful because it was "based on  the concept of individually-held property driven by incentive" while the other was based on the communal ideas of Plato and Bacon (New World Order, Wm. Still).

Here are some other scientists known to be Freemasons (from Wes Penre's site): J.J  Berzelius (17-1800s, Swedish chemist),  Luther Burbank (American botanist), Albert Einstein,  J. E. Gunnerus (1700s Norwegian bishop and botanist), A. A. Michelson (US physicist, 1st American awarded Nobel, in 1907), Gaspard Monge (17-1800s, French mathematician, founder of descriptive geometry), Hans Orsted (Danish physicist and chemist, 17-1800s), and UFO believer turned pseudo-skeptic Carl Sagan.

The pseudo-scientfic lunatic fringe group CSICOP (properly pronounced see'-si-kop (Crackpots in Support of Inane Claims Opposing the Paranormal (now the CSI (Crank Skeptics Institute)) was founded in 1976 under the auspices of another pseudo-scientific group, the  AMA (American Humanist Association) ("humanism" being possibly an Obscurantist invention or perverted by Obscurantism), which attempts to debunk the paranormal but usually fails. Sagan is a member of the former, as are a one-time European editor of Omni, the editor of the Encyclopedia of Philosophy, managing editor of Discover magazine, the notorious fanatic Phillip Klass, and notorious behaviourist Skinner (Gods of Eden, p. 422-23).

And the IAS (Institute for the Advancement of Science) was founded by the Round Table, and counted Einstein and Oppenheimer as members (Gods of Eden, p. 333). Few of Einstein's ideas were original and some accuse him of plagiarism (see Myths and Misconceptions in Page 4).

  

 
        

       

the Obscurantists and Spiritualism

The following are the 7 precepts followed by most of the spiritualist movement/religion as handed down through the mediumship of Emma Hardinge-Britten in 1871 from Robert Owen:
 
 Fatherhood of God (often taken to be a universal creative force instead of a person)
 Brotherhood of Man
 Communion of Spirits and Ministry of Angels
 continuous existence of the human soul
 personal responsibility
 reward and retribution in the hereafter for all good and evil deeds done on earth
 eternal progess open to every soul
 
 The American Spiritualist churches have 6 which were adopted in 1899 in Chicago with the last 3 added later (Principles 7 and 8 adopted in Rochester, New York, 1909;  Principle 9 adopted in St. Louis, Missouri, 1944):
 
 l.   Infinite Intelligence;
 2.  the phenomena of Nature, both physical and spiritual, are the expression of Infinite Intelligence;
 3.  a correct understanding of such expression and living in accordance therewith constitute true religion;
 4.   the existence and personal identity of the individual continue after the change called death;
 5.   communication with the so-called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism;
 6.  the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule;
 7.  moral responsibility of the individual.
 8.  the doorway to reformation is never closed against any soul here or hereafter
 9.  the precept of Prophecy and Healing are Divine attributes proven through Mediumship
 
Robert  Owen was the founder of socialism in Britain and believed  "no one was responsible for his will and his own actions because his whole character is formed independently of himself; people are products of their environment"(this is, of course, the psychotic delusion of no-nature.   He was the idol of scientist, spiritualist supporter,  psychic investigator, and social activist  A.F. Wallace. Owen was intolerant, cynical, and vilifying  toward all religion, yet in 1854, at 83, 4 years before his death, he was converted to Spiritualism after a series of sittings with the American medium Maria Hayden (credited with introducing spiritualism to England). He made a public profession of his new faith in his publication The Rational Quarterly Review and later wrote a pamphlet entitled "The future of the human race; or great, glorious, and future revolution to be effected through the agency of departed spirits of good and superior men and women." He  claimed to have had mediumistic contact with the spirits of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and others.   Jefferson and Franklin  were  Freemasons (part of the international crime syndicate). 
 
Robert Dale Owen, the eldest (1801-1877) of his 4 sons who all settled in the US,  was an exponent of his father's doctrines, was a politician, and  drafted the bill for the founding of the Smithsonian Institute (Smithson was a socialist and Freemason so his philanthropy was pretense).  He was a strong believer in spiritualism and was the author of 2 well-known books on the subject: Footfalls on the Boundary of Another World (1859) and The Debatable Land Between this World and the Next (1872).
 
A cross-correspondence is when a communication from one other-side dweller through 1 medium  corresponds with one  through another medium  working independently. The  SPR Cross-Correspondences (Spirit Summonings) were by far the most lengthy and complex in history. They were mostly automatic writings, occasionally trance speeches, and were fragmentary, abstruse, full of symbolism, and disjointed taken individually but eventually and painstakingly were peiced together being investigated minutely by expert SPR investigators, such as Eleanor Sidgwick, widow of Henry, and her brother Gerald Balfour, siblings of Arthur, who sifted through 1000s of pages of the scripts (automatic writings) and concluded  they were evidence not only of  the afterlife but also the ability of "spirits" to show protracted design.
 
12 mediums in all were involved, the  major ones being Margaret Verrall, a classical scholar and wife of  a Cambridge classics professor; Mrs. Verrall's daughter Helen, also a classical scholar, who later married psychic researcher W.H. Salter; Alice Kipling-Fleming, sister of Rudyard and wife of a British officer living in India (Kipling wrote several supernatural short stories, in particular, "The Phantom Rickshaw" and "My Own True Ghost Story", both from 1895); Winifred Coobe-Tennant, once a rep to the League of Nations; and American Leonora Piper, the only professional medium in the group. Some knew each other, some never met, some had known Frederick Myers, Edward Gurney, and Henry Sidgwick, the 3 major "spirits," who were also SPR founders, the others did not. They went on for 30 years and ended in 1932.
 
The communications promoted a new world order of which the 5 communicators were members and prophets. Their minions in this world would be a new race, the "children of the spirit", who would suffer through world wars and other catastrophes to bring about the prophesized "utopia." Eleanor and Henry Sidgwick, and Gerald and Arthur Balfour (PM of Britain) were all at one time presidents of the SPR. The Balfours were high-ranking Freemasons (Caroll Quigley, the Anglo-American Establishment, 1981)  so we see here, too, that the Obscurantists, the international crime syndicate that has Satanism as its religion and totalitarianism as its politics, rears its ugly head even in spiritualism and tries to control psychic research through organizations like the SPR.
 
And here is a quote from the SPR Journal: "That Mrs. Piper should have worked up the dossiers of all the sitters some time before was practically impossible. No doubt it was permissible to assume a Freemasonry amongst professional mediums, and that any information obtained by one of the fraternity would be at the disposal of all" (holygrail-Secrets of the Afterlife). Also, Kipling was a Freemason so it is safe to assume his wife was, too.
 
A. C.  Doyle (1859-1930) was also a Freemason (Wikipedia-List of Freemasons) and made several references to Freemasonry in his fiction  and attended 2 Jesuit schools (Wikipedia). He was Scottish-born and of Irish parents, renowned as the  Sherlock Holmes creator,  was a prolific writer (novels, short stories, plays, poetry, non-fiction; he also authored the Prof. Challenger series and sci-fi books) and physician,  and was  himself a spiritualist. His interest in the supernatural came at least as early as 1881, at 22, as in this year he attended a lecture on spiritualism (siracd.com). He also had a friendship with a member of the Ghost Club in London, apparently starting in 1887, at the age of 28, and he visited haunted houses, came into contact with mediums, attending numerous séances, and championed the cause of a spirit photography club  called the Crewe Circle, which  he wrote about in his book The Case for Spirit Photography (1922)(Dictionary of Ghosts, Peter Haining, 1993).
 
He had been duped by fraudulent mediums which were commonplace at the time and this fraudulence contributed to the waning of the movement, but he did have some true supernatural encounters, at least ones that have never been disproven.  Two of these he recounts in his autobio Memories and Adventures (1924). One was  through the mediumship of his 2nd wife (with whom he had had a platonic relationship for 10 years as he was already married)  where  he received messages, and the other was a haunted house. After the house  burned down, the skeleton of a child was found and he surmised it was her spirit who was the ghost. In a curious twist, his old home,  Windlesham Manor in Sussex, is now said to be haunted by his ghost.
 
He is suspected of murder and plagiarism by some researchers, the latter involving Holmes,  but the evidence is inconclusive and in the former is circumstantial and some evidence points to the victim's wife, the victim being the one Doyle is suspected by some of plagiarizing. He is also suspected by some of perpetrating the Piltdown Hoax (The Perpetrator at Piltdown, J. H. Winslow and A. Meyer, Science 83, Sept., 1983).
 
He had a friendship with master escape artist Erich Weiss (Harry Houdini) (who was also a Freemason (List of Freemasons-Wikipedia)) but thought that his tricks were due to psychic powers because Weiss did not disclose his secrets out of professional pride. This and the fact that they were polar opposites on the subject of the supernatural contributed to their falling out (Spirit Summonings). Of course, the fantasy created by magicians that good magicians don't reveal their secrets and that if the secrets are revealed there would be no more magic is especially ludicrous as there are so many tricks to begin with,  so many variations to so many of them,  many new ones are always being invented, and telling only 1 or a  few people would certainly not be a threat  in any case. Many of the best magicians do reveal their secrets-- in books, on TV, videos, and DVDs. I have some of the books myself. Predictably, the 4-part series of secrets revealed  by Valentino on TV didn't even come close to being a threat to magic. The notorious dishonesty of magicians is totally without surprise since most are skeptics and most skeptics are notorious for their dishonesty. Houdini himself had once briefly worked as a fake medium in an early period when he was penniless and starving to earn a few extra dollars. To his credit, however, he was a true debunker, unlike crank skeptics, and had done an important public service in exposing many frauds and fraudulent practices in mediumship. He had consulted mediums himself but encountered only frauds which set him on an anti-spiritualist, debunking campaign. And he believed in the afterlife--he was, after all, the son of  a rabbi (Spirit Summonings, pp. 102-04).
 
Doyle also wrote Wanderings of a Spiritualist (1922), the History of Spiritualism (1924, in 2 volumes), and the Edge of the Unknown (1930), and edited the writings of Mme. Home, as Daniel Home's 1st wife was known, as D.D. Home: His Life and Mission (1921). D.D. Home was a fraudulent medium. Not surprisingly, the supernatural appeared in some of his fiction, especially in 2 short story collections, Dreamland and Ghostland (1886) and The Last Gallery (1911). 
 
Richard Hodgson (1855-1905) (survivalafterdeath.com; answers.com-Occult and Parapsychology Encyclopedia), Doctor of Letters, was born in Melbourne, raised a Methodist, and moved  to London where he became a member of the Cambridge Society for Psychic Research, founded in 1879,  forerunner of the SPR. He investigated Madame Blavatsky of the Theosophical Society  in India and declared her a charlatan, which she was (and also a Satanist and reincarnationist). He then relocated to Boston in 1887 where he became executive secretary of the ASPR, was the only full-time employee of the group, and is believed to have been the 1st full-time, salaried psychic researcher, and continued the investigation of Boston medium Leonore Piper, taking over from psychologist and philosopher William James. Hodgson was a skeptic who turned into a believer and toward the end of his life he apparently acquired mediumistic powers himself, his spirit controls being Imperator and Rector. The 2 controls were said to be in  much higher realms than the 2 previous controls for him, the 4 were the same for Mrs. Piper.
 
Shortly after his decease,  Mrs. Piper, who was in the vanguard of the new breed, the mental medium, and was untainted by fraud and sensationalism, with sitters James Hyslop, William James, Jr., Mrs. James, and novelist Henry James, Jr. (the Jr. is not usually included; he wrote the supernatural story The Turn of the Screw in 1886), brother to William, Sr., at differnt times, received  messages purportedly from him, sometimes directly and sometimes through Rector, who was able to communicate more easily through the medium's voice and automatic writing than Hodgson  could as he had better "management of the light."  Many of these messages provided evidence  bearing on the continued identity of Hodgson. He related, for instance,  certain details which the sitters didn't  recall but other people did.
 
However, many test questions were left unanswered. "If we could suppose," writes Frank Podmore, "that sometimes the real Hodgson communicated through the medium's hand, and that sometimes, more often, when he was inaccessible, the medium's secondary personality played the part as best it could, these difficulties would, no doubt, be lessened." The detailed records of these séances, over a period of 1 1/2 years, were handed over to William James for examination. In his paper, "Report on Mrs. Piper's Hodgson Control," he says, "I myself feel as if an external will to communicate were probably there, that is, I find myself doubting … that Mrs. Piper's dreamlife, even equipped with 'telepathic' powers, accounts for all the results found. But if asked whet to communicate be Hodgson's or be some mere spirit-counterfeit of Hodgson, I remain uncertain and await more facts, facts which may not point clearly to a conclusion for fifty or a hundred years." In England, the Hodgson messages were studied by Eleanor Sidgwick, J. G. Piddington, and Sir Oliver Lodge during Piper's visit to England. They did not find them authentic.
 
In reference to  this "2nd personality" , some researchers believe that some mediums have multiple- pesonality disorder along with genuine psychic abilities which can come out in trance states or automatic writing and many mediums have had troubled childhoods. Piper was one of them. So some of the messages, especially the evidential ones, were probably  authentic. And as noted in the William Moses bio (spiritwritings.com ( from Enc. of  Occ. and Parapsych., 5th ed., J. Gordon Melton, ed., 2001)), "These precautions do not exclude the possibility of the action of the subconscious mind." The precaustions refered are ones taken by Moses concerning the possibility his conscious thoughts might mix with the communications.
 
Previously, the same 2 control names, along with others, together being the Imperator Band, as it was called,  for Mrs. Piper,  had popped up in séances with English, Anglican priest the Rev. William Moses, PhD  (survivalafterdeath.com), but some investigators questioned whether Piper’s Rector was the same as Moses’ Rector, even though her Imperator group claimed to be the same one that controlled Moses.  As Oliver Lodge, the distinguished British physicist and psychic researcher wrote, “It is  rather a puzzle to me why Mrs. Piper’s personalities should have assumed the same set of names. In general characters they are similar, but I see no very close resemblance in detail. And hitherto the Piper ‘Imperator’ has not given us the same old earth name as the original ‘Imperator’ to William Moses. So it would appear as if they did not very seriously pretend to be identical.”
 
What the communicators revealed was that they got together to uplift mankind with moral teachings and about  how the spirit world was controlled. They were organized into 7 circles of 7 spirits, making a total of 49. Reincarnation was included in their communications but not in a very clear manner. In some sessions there appeared lights in the shape of a cross and balls and the communicators said these were themselves. But it is rather unlikely a spirit body would occur in cruciate form. Also, a place of bliss perpetually at war between good and evil spirits, which is part of what they told,  is a contradiction. The whole thing doesn't sound very credible.

Moses' integrity was well attested and his feats were quite amazing, doing several physical manifestations. But the earthly names given are mostly of famous people, including Plato,  which is suspect. As well, these names were not given at 1st, even though, Moses repeatedly asked for them. He arranged that  the earthly names would not be published  in his lifetime as he figured he would be an object of scorn. He himself sometimes doubted the veracity of the communicators. Also we see the number 7 pop up regularly which is a sign of Obscurantism. We can conclude the Imperator Band, at least the one for Moses, was not genuine. Moses related his experiences  in Spirit Teachings (1883), Spirit Identity, and More Spirit Teachings.

The Council of Nine

This New Age channeling cult has 100s of 1000s of devotees worldwide.  include cutting edge scientists, multi-millionaire industrialists, and leading politicians.  The Startgate Conspiracy by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince looks at its sinister origins. The 9 say, among other things, that they were on the Planet Earth  34,000 years ago and came from a planet 69, 000 light-years away. (secretsun.blogspot.ca-Chris Knowles).

Unlike all the other channelling cults, that of The Nine has serious clout. Perhaps the reason for this is that they claim to be the Ennead, or the nine major gods of ancient Egypt--Atum, Shu, Tefnut,  Nut,  Osiris, Isis,  Geb, Set, and Nephthys-- probably also because of its CIA connections.

The story begins in 1948 in a private research lab in Glen Cove, Maine, called the Round Table Foundation, run by medical doctor Andrija Puharich (also known as Henry Puharich). set up  to do parapsychological research.  Among the noted psychics studied were Irish medium Eileen Garrett and the Dutch clairvoyant Peter Hurkos (Pieter van de Hirk). Members of the 9 in the Round Table  were all aristocrats and included philosopher and inventor Arthur Young, of Bell Helicopter, Ruth Forbes-Paine-Young (Young’s wife), Alice Bouverie (née Astor), Henry Jackson, Georgia Jackson,  Marcella DuPont, Carl Betz, Vonny Beck, and Puharich himself. (secretsun.blogspot.ca from Levenda).

In December, 1952, Puharich brought into his lab an Indian mystic named Dr D. G. Vinod, who began to channel The Nine or 'the Nine Principles'. In the months before Vinod returned to India, a group met regularly to hear The Nine's channelled information. Three years later, there appeared to be independent confirmation of their existence. In Mexico, Puharich and Young met Charles and Lillian Laughead, former Christian missionaries who were by then prominent in the burgeoning UFO contactee movement.  Back in the States a few weeks later, Puharich received a letter from the Laugheads containing messages received by their group's channeller. This message also claimed to come from the Nine Principles, even - amazingly - including references to the earlier communications transmitted through Dr Vinod.
 
After disbanding the Round Table Foundation in 1958, Puhariich  worked for 10 years as an inventor of medical devices and achieved international recognition as a parapsychologist, most famously studying the Brazilian psychic surgeon, Arigo (José Pedro de Freitas). But much more famously, in 1971, he discovered renowned Israeli psychic Uri Geller.   

In their first meetings, Puharich hypnotised Geller in an attempt to find out where his abilities came from. As a result, the young Israeli started to channel 'Spectra' (Roddenberry produced a TV movey by the same name which was changed to Spectrum)- a being which claimed to be a conscious super-computer aboard a spaceship. However, Puharich suggested to him that there might be a connection with the Nine Principles, and Spectra readily agreed that there was. The Nine claimed that they had programmed Geller with his powers as a young child.

It uis claimed that through Geller, the Nine alerted Puharich to his life's mission, which was to use Geller's talents to alert the world of an imminent mass landing of spaceships that would bring representatives of the Nine. However, Geller, by now an international psychic superstar, bowed out in '73 and has resolutely turned his back on the Nine ever since. Puharich had to find other channellers. He joined up with aristocrat and former racing driver Sir John Whitmore and Florida-based psychic and healer Phyllis Schlemmer. They found a new channeller, a Daytona cook known to history only by the pseudonym 'Bobby Horne', who lived to regret his dealings with the Nine. Driven to the brink of suicide by their constant demands, he too dropped out of the scene, his despair being dismissed by Whitmore as "signs of instability". After this, Phyllis Schlemmer was appointed the authorized spokesman for 'Tom', who represented the Nine.

Subsequently, Geller formed the Geller Kids and Puharich formed the Space Kids, who lived on his Ossining estate and channelled ETs.

Puharich, Whitmore, and Schlemmer then set up Lab Nine at Puharich's estate in Ossining, New York. The Nine's disciples included multi-millionaire businessmen (many hiding behind pseudonyms and including members of Canada's richest family, the Bronfmans), European nobility, scientists from the Stanford Research Institute, and at least one prominent political figure who was a personal friend of President Ford.

We also know that Lyall Watson (then prominent in the alternative scene because of his seminal 1973 book Supernature), counter-culture guru Ira Einhorn (possibly a convicted murderer), and Gene Roddenberry were involved. Roddenberry was part of that circle in 1974 and 1975, and even produced the screenplay for a movey called The Nine. How much he was influenced by them is unknown, although it is said that some of their concepts found their way into the early Star Trek movies and The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine series. There is a character named 'Vinod' in one Deep Space 9 episode.

Another key player in Lab 9 was Dr James J Hurtak, who was appointed Puharich's 2nd-in-command by the Nine. In fact, Hurtak had been independently channelling them since 1973. Puharich and Whitmore commissioned British writer Stuart Holroyd to write an account of their lab activities, which appeared in '77 as Prelude to the Landing on Planet Earth (retitled Briefings for the Landing on Planet Earth in paperback). In it the true identity of the Nine, and Tom, was finally revealed. Tom is actually Atum, the creator-god of the ancient Egyptian religion of Heliopolis, and with his 8 mates forms the Great Ennead of Heliopolis.

Lab 9 broke up in '78 after a series of mysterious events that culminated in an arson attack on the Ossining estate, and Puharich fled to Mexico, claiming that he was being persecuted by the CIA. He returned to the US 2 years later, and appears to have played no further part in the Nine story. He died in 1995 after falling down the stairs in his South Carolina home. There apparently had been 2 assassination attempts on him. However, the Nine continued. Not only did Schlemmer and Whitmore continue their mission, and Hurtak has  has established himself as a New Age guru, travelling the world giving workshops on his book of channelled revelations from the Nine, The Keys of Enoch. Written and laid out in classic Biblical style, its darkly apocalyptic vision has huge numbers of influential devotees.

But the content of the Nine, the pronouncements and claims of space aliens masquerading as Egyptian gods, the promises of a benign race coming to help mankind in its evolutionary development, can be found almost verbatim, identical in content, tone, and style to the channeled material that would be published from The Nine sessions, in a story titled "Son of the Sun"  (which would be borrowed for an early Star Wars title) from the November, 1947 issue of Fantastic Adventures, a magazine under the auspices of  Ray Palmer, the legendary Amazing Stories editor and creator of Fate Magazine (secretsun.blogspot.ca).

Another Nine channeller, an Englishwoman named Jenny O'Connor,  was introduced to the avant garde Esalen Institute, located in Big Sur and founded by Dick Price and Michael Murphy, in San Francisco by Whitmore. She and the Nine became so influential there that they held seminars and were listed on the Institute's staff, even successfully ordering the sacking of its chief financial officer and the reorganization of its entire management structure.

Esalen is a Rockefeller project. Laurance Rockefeller money helped build it, sustain it, and grow it, and helped rebuild it after various crises. It also helped build a New Age empire in California, including Esalen, the San Francisco Zen Center, the Lindisfarne Association, the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and the California Institute of Integral Studies, and funded John Mack.

Many influential people attended The Nine's Esalen seminars, including Russians who were part of the Institute's Russian exchange program. Some of these later rose to prominence in the Gorbachev regime and were instrumental in the downfall of Russian communism. The Esalen Institute now runs the US branch of the Gorbachev Foundation.

One of the 9's recent channellers, who is also in contact with Tom, is the American writer David Myers, who is co-author with Britain's David Percy of Two-Thirds, a history of the galaxy and the human species according to Myer's otherwordly contacts. Percy, best known as a champion of the Face on Mars and the hoaxing of the Apollo lunar landings, was at one time part of the Schlemmer circle. Among the other major proponents of the Martian monuments and their alleged connection with ancient Egypt is James Hurtak, the Nine's great prophet, who has promoted this idea since as long ago as 1973. Richard Hoagland is also linked to the group as  Myers and  Percy were, respectively, American and European Director of Operations for Hoagland's Mars Mission, and his interpretation of the  Martian structure apparently comes directly from the Nine.

The words of the Council of 9 appeared in 1992 as the book The Only Planet of Choice, credited to 'transceiver' Schlemmer and edited by Mary Bennett (a one-time member of the Schlemmer circle, who also edited Myers and Percy's Two-Thirds), which  has had great influence over the New Age movement. According to Palden Jenkins (editor of an earlier edition of the book) more and more New Age channelling groups are "realizing" that the real source of their "wisdom" is the Nine. Picknett and Prince claim there is a campaign by the Nine, or their adherents, to take over the New Age movement.

But The Nine's influence does not extend merely to New Age channelling circles. Andrija Puharich, James Hurtak, and Richard Hoagland have all lectured at the United Nations in New York. And individuals connected with the Nine are also known to have influence with former Vice-President Al Gore, an important promoter of the man-made global warming myth and  Freemason.

Tom, in The Only Planet of Choice, says that all the races of the Earth were seeded from space-gods, except one, the "indigenous race", the blacks, which subtly intimates that they are somehow inferior, not being "divine".

Recent research has revealed Puharich to have a distinctly sinister side. As an Army doctor in the '50s, he was deeply involved with the CIA's notorious MK-ULTRA mind control project. He, together with the infamous Dr Sidney Gottlieb, experimented with a variety of techniques to change or induce actual thought processes, even to creating the impression of voices in the head. These techniques included the use of drugs, hypnosis, and beaming radio signals directly into the subject's brain. And, significantly, he was engaged in this work at exactly the same time that the Nine made their first appearance at the Round Table Foundation. The Foundation itself is now known to have been largely funded by the Pentagon as a front for its medical and parapsychological research. Puharich was still working for the CIA in the early '70s, when he brought Uri Geller out of Israel. Puharich's use of hypnosis is particularly interesting in the Nine circle. He first hypnotised Uri Geller and Bobby Horne and then suggested that they were in touch with the Nine. Ira Einhorn, a close associate of Puharich during the '70s, says that he believed Puharich was "humanly directing" the Nine communications.

Picknett and Prince point out that the evidence strongly suggests Tom and his fellow "gods" originated, not in the stars or ancient Egypt, but behind closed doors as part of a CIA mind control program.

the Obscurantists in Literature

Here is a list of only some (taken mostly from Wikipedia-List of Freemasons):

Horace Walpole (from an Obscurantist family that included a British PM); wrote The Castle of Otranto, 1764, considered the
      1st Gothic novel.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton (a Rosicrucian)-this author is famously known for the opening line from Paul Clifford, his 1830
     novel, "it was a dark and stormy night," and is unfairly criticized for his writing style. The full sentence is, "It was a dark
     and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind
     which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the
     scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness." Contrary to what is often claimed by  people of the most
     extreme foolishness, this is not overly long and is great  prose.
Algernon Blackwood (member of the Order of the Golden Dawn, a Satanic group, as were also Yeats and Oscar Wilde's
     wife Constance  (mysteriousbritain.co.uk-Golden Dawn)
Oscar Wilde      Freemason
Charles Dickens (it is unclear whether he was anti-Mason or Freemason)
Rudyard Kipling
Francis Bacon     New Atlantis, an NWO book
DeVere and Greville, authors of the "Shakespeare" plays were probably Rosicrucians and Freemasons, like Bacon, who is
      believed to have written "Shakespeare's" works by some (americanchronicle). MacBeth is considered to be based on the
     Haram Agriff ritual of Freemason initiates. All 3 authors and many others  were in the same literary circles and the other
     authors were probably Obscurantists, too.
H. G. Wells     wrote The Shape of Things to Come and The New World Order
G. B. Shaw     member of the Fabian Society, a socialist and Obscurantist group.
A.C. Doyle
Friedrich Schiller
Alexander Pushkin
Mark Twain
Jonathan Swift
Alexander Pope
Carlo Collodi (wrote Pinocchio)
Robert Burns
Walter Scott
Jules Verne
Arthur C. Clarke
Henri-René "Jimmy" Guieu (Memphis-Mizraim lodge)(French SF and UFO writer, maverick who denounced the NWO and
     recognized the connection between it and space aliens; was murdered (Témoignage de l'assassinat de Jimmy Guieu-You

This is probably only the tip of the iceberg as practically all actors are only too willing to participate in the most horribly and unthinkably gross scenes in films and TV, an almost certain sign of Satanism, with the zombified public not caring one way or the other. This, the Masonic hand signs, and the majority of actors coming from broken homes and disfunctional families, being abused as children,  having perverse lifestyles, bad characters, and radical politics all combines to indicate that chances are most stars are Obscurantists.
 
Madonna Ciccone was in a movie (Desperately Seeking Susan, 1985) in which the Freemason pyramid and eye symbol figured prominently (on the back of a jacket). She is also heavily into the Kabbala which, like Gnosticism,  is a strong influence for Freemasonry and Satanism and promotes reincarnationism. She also did Evita which was in honour of a Nazi and wife of a Nazi, Eva Perron.
 
It is claimed Gene Roddenberry was a Freemason (Atlantean Conspiracy by Eric Dubay; Majesty 12 by Bill Cooper-mt.net and hourofourtime). The initials JTK, which stand for James Tiberius Kirk, allegedly represent Knights of the Temple of Jerusalem in reverse. The Vulcanian hand sign supposedly means 5 (Roman numeral V), which is an important Masonic number. "Scotty" was supposedly taken from Scottish Rite (however, Nimoy claims to have taken he Vulcanian hand sign from a rabbinic blessing; and James Doohan did several accents--Russian, German, Irish, Englsh, and Scottish--and it was the last one Roddenberry and his associates liked best (Strange and Amazing Facts About Star Trek, Daniel Cohen, Archway/Pocket Books, 1986; Inside Star Trek: the Real Story, Solow and Justman, 1996, Simon & Schuster); and Christopher Pike, the previous captain of the Enterprise, was allegedly named for the "Christed"  Albert Pike, Freemason and a founder of the KKK. As well, Vulcan, the name for Spock's planet, is a Roman god, and as Tubal-Cain (Genesis 4:22)(a descendant of Cain, the evil brother who murdered Abel), bronze and iron forger like Vulcan, is a Masonic god and also the password to the 3rd degree (Jesus is Saviour website; redicecreations), but it is possible he got the name from the once-hypotheticized planet between Mercury and the Sun.

Tubal-Cain is possibly the origin of the name Vulcan (The Genesis Record, Henry Morris, 1976), but according to Roman tradition it comes from the Latin fulgur, meaning lightning an etymology also supported by W.W. Skeat in his Etymological Dictionary of the English Language from 1882 (volcano from Sanskrit varchas meaning luster), or could also be from the Cretan-Minoan god Velchanos, god of nature and the nether world (Zeus: a study in ancient religion, vol. 2, p. 945, Arthur Cook, 1925), an origin supported by Gérard Capdeville (Volchanus: recherches comparatistes sur le culte de Vulcain, 1994), who sees a continuity between Velchanos and the Etruscan god Velchans.

And I noticed that the UFP (United Federation of Planets) banner featured in "And the Children Shall Lead" has 13 stars yet the UFP is not only international but interstellar and the 13 stars is supposedly an American symbol, "The Enemy Within" reflects a Gnostic belief, and Spock is used to make misanthropic statements. United Earth may have been another term for NWO. Notice that Roddenberry was a sex addict, by his own admission (the Longest Trek, Grace Lee Whitney, p. 179 (I got this book free from Miss Whitney who personally autographs all the copies; this information must also be in his unauthorized bio and is in Solow and Justman, 1996, loc. cit.), like the Masonic Kennedys and the Masonic Bill Clinton and I imagine many others like that.

I was always a big fan of Star Trek, the original, classic, '60s series, as I was always a big fan of science-fiction especially space adventure, but I was never very much impressed by the messages because I believe in escapism and art for art's sake, however, Star Trek was greatly entertaining and artistic so it had great appeal to some one like me, too. Its creator was certainly not as the myth would have us believe and he had serious character  flaws (as related by people who knew him and other evidence (see the Joel Engel bio, Gene Roddenberry: the Man and the Myth Behind Star Trek,  from '94; the David Gerrold article on-line; Solow and Justman, loc. cit.)--he was alcoholic and may have been narcissistic--and was not well-liked by many people, but it may be that, if he was a 33rd degree Freemason, that he was not in the inner circle; not all high-ranking Freemasons are in the inner circle and a good example of this is Jimmy Guieu, who stood up against the dark agenda, and was murdered for it (see Obscurantists in Literature). But there is certainly a conflict of interest for a member of an organization which discriminates against blacks and women who believes in egalitarian values. 

Also, there is convincing evidence that he was the one who violated Grace Lee Whitney, which can be summed up as follows:

1. Miss Whitney  identifies the perpetrator as a womanizer (p. 5); Roddenberry was  a womanizer
2. the perpetrator was alcoholic; so was  Roddenberry
3. she had known the perpetrator since a "couple of years" (p. 5) and  trusted him (p. 2); she had known Roddenberry since The Lieutenant in '63-'64.
4. Roddenberry was the executive producer and headed Norway Corp.
5. "The Executive had me removed from Star Trek because he didn't want to be reminded of what he did to me  that night."(p. 15); although this is not her final conclusion, it means he was very present in the production, and a network executive wouldn't be, and  nowhere does she say  that he was a network executive
6. it would be awkward at best identifying him as the perpetrator since he was the Great Bird of the Galaxy, and that's probably the principal reason she never named him
7. years later there was talk of a rift between her and Roddenberry just prior to her firing (Inside ST, p. 243-44)
8. he gave her a polished stone (p. 8) and he was into such a hobby (Inside ST, p. 73)
9. she says the perpetrator can't hurt her anymore (p. 14), which probably means he's deceased, and Roddenberry deceased 7 years before her book came out.

Desi Arnaz was also an alcoholic and a womanizer, and she mentions that he was the biggest womanizer you ever met, was all over her, and she was always fending him off, but that was in the early '60s, and he was out of the picture by '66 and wasn't into polished stones. That she spoke so well of Roddenberry in the latter part of the book  might be considered as indicating that it wasn't him, but she had forgiven him and had made her peace with him. A review of her book says that she never named him, but she leaves many clues. It's only a few clues, but I don't know if she did it on purpose. 

I had come to the same conclusion as others (on the Trek BBS,  Star Trek. Com, and Nit Central.Phil Farrand.Com) about Roddenberry being the perpetrator.
 
Stefani Germinotta (Lady Gaga)'s performances are full of Obscurantist symbolism (vigilantcitizen.com; Lady Gaga-the Illuminati Puppet, on YouTube).

In movies we see several signs of 9/11 long before it happened (Hollywood 9/11: 9/11-Illuminati Conspiracy Archives).
 
     Gremlins, '84, the red indicator on the car radio dial is between 9 and 11.
     Independence day, '96, laptop countdown shows 9: 11: 01.
     the Peacemaker, '97, desks 9 and 11 are behind George Clooney at JFK Airport.
     Traffic, 2000, opening sequence, 911 are on the drug boxes.
     the Patriot, 2000, in scene with Mel Gibson, the chair weighs 9 pds., 11 ozs., and it collapses under his weight!

There is, however, actress Mary Sean Young, usually known as Sean Young, who recognizes secret societies and their ET connection and their Satanism (interview on Red Ice Radio-You Tube; see also her website). It should be noted that she supports the fixed 13-month calendar invented by José Arguelles, who is a member of the Club of Budapest, which supports Agenda 21 and which was founded by the Club of Rome president, which is an Obscurantist group.

Abusive talent judge Simon Cowell, although not an entertainer, is in show biz, and is pictured on a jet-ski, which has the Freemason symbol on it (vigilantcitizen). He was coached to do abusive 1-liners by Max Clifford, contraversial British publicist of dubious ethics (Wikipedia). He is also seen doing the V sign (whale.to).

Obscurantist Numbers and Symbols  

Very common among  Freemasons are the numbers 13 and 33. And 3, 7, 9, 11, 13, 33, 39 or any multiple of these have special meaning to the Obscurantists (Robert Howard's "11, 13, and 33- The Illuminati / Freemason Signature" from the Forbidden Knowledge and Biblioteca Pléyades web sites). The Bilderberg Group has a core of 39 members who are broken into 3 groups of 13 members in each group and the core of 39 answers to the 13 who make up the Policy Committee which, in turn, answers to the Round Table of nine. There were the 13 colonies. The Constitution has 7 articles and was signed by 39 members of the Constitutional Convention (Secret Societies / New World Order by William Cooper).

Obscurantists believe that, once a symbol is created, it acquires power of its own, and more power is generated when such symbols are created without the uninitiated knowing about it and that the greatest power is created in the symbol if the uninitiated never discover that the symbol exists ("11, 13, and 33- The Illuminati / Freemason Signature").   Then there is the Great Seal. There are 13 leaves on the left olive branch with 13 berries, 13 stripes on the middle shield, 13 arrows on the right,  13 stars above the eagles head, 13 letters in the "E Pluribus Unum" on the ribbon, 13 letters in Annuit Coeptis. There are 13 blocks top to bottom on the pyramid. Fritz Springmeir in his The 13 Bloodlines says these 13 blocks represent the 13 Satanic families.
 
In DC, George Washington is memorialized in the rotunda ceiling on a mural entitled, The Apotheosis of Washington. The mural shows him surrounded by 13 maidens ("11, 13, and 33- The Illuminati / Freemason Signature").  

On August 6, 1945 at 8:15 a.m. United States B-29 bomber Enola Gay, on Mission No. 13, dropped an atomic bomb  on Hiroshima near the 33rd Parallel ("11, 13, and 33- The Illuminati / Freemason Signature"). In 1935, Paul Foster Case wrote: "Since the date, 1776, is placed on the bottom course of the pyramid [on the Great Seal], and since the number 13 has been so important in the history of the United States and in the symbols of the seal, it is not unreasonable to suppose that the thirteen courses of the pyramid may represent thirteen time-periods of thirteen years each.' The 13 time-periods of 13 years each equaled 169 years. From July 4, 1776 to July 4, 1945 equalled 169 years. From July 4, 1945 to August 6, 1945 (Hiroshima) was 33 days."

We can also add the year the Federal  Reserve was created, 1913, and the Apollo 13 mission blasting off at 13:13 hours, which were no coincidences. 

The origin of 13 as an ill omen and bad luck and associated with destruction or the like is unknown but Robert Howard says that it occurs first in Gen. xiv. 4, where "Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and the thirteenth year they rebelled." This, of course, would not be the 1st appearance of 13 and the 13th year might have been chosen instead of accidental.  Often, it is the Last Supper with the 13th Apostle being Judas Iscariot that is cited as the origin and there are parallels in other cultures like the 13th guest in the Loki legend (Scandinavian mythology) but there are 2 more plausible possibilities, with the 2nd probably being most plausible. One is that it represents a broken dozen, 12 being highly valued because it is an even number and is evenly divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 and there are 12 30 degree segments in a circle which correspond to the 12 hours of a sundial and clock which in turn correspond to the 12 months of the year if we see each day as  a degree which matches approximately the solar year. The other is  that  it represents the moon, thus night, since there are 13 months in a year (based on the period of rotation, 28 days, but generally the synodic month is used, based on lunar phases), 13 moons in other words (hence also the association of the moon to females, witches, for instance, having 13-member covens), and night being associated to evil. And in numerology it is a number representing death or destruction.

In any case, it should be remembered that numbers can be perverted and are by the Obscurantists and none are bad in themselves. As an example, 13 is a number important in nature having no negative attributes in itself except for the fact that it's an odd number. There are 13 signs in the zodiac, not 12 as is commonly believed (Ophiuchus being the extra one, between Scorpio and Sagittarius (Real Solar Zodiac-Geocities; Universe, Roger Freedman, Wm. Kaufmann, p. 34, which was my graduate astronomy course textbook), 13 months in the year, if we consider  the rotational period of 28 days, as already alluded to, and 13 weeks to  a quarter year. And 5 has natural signifigance, too, as we are pentadactylic creatures as are many other animals familiar to us like the cat and dog, all mammals having 5 digits, so in themselves the pentagon, pentagram, and pentacle have nothing wrong with them. And there are normally 33 vertebras in humans, comprising the cervical (7 ), thoracic (12),  lumbar (5), sacral (5 fused at maturity), coccygeal ( tailbone) (4 fused). There was a superstition that spiritual or energetic regeneration (whatever that would be) involves elevated consciousness and  takes place by degrees through the vertebral column hence the 33 degrees of Freemasonry (Genesis of the Grail Kings, Laurence Gardner, 1999, Bantam, pp. 126-9).
 
Naturally, the Obscurantists have also perverted words like "light" and "illumination" which they use to mean darkness.

Also, the NATO emblem is a form of the swastika (Wes Penre's "Illuminati" News website). It was originally counterclockwise, and goes back to Antiquity, but turned around by the National Socialists and  probably represented a torsion physics effect as explained and illustrated in "Secrets of the Unified Field" ( Joseph Farrell, Adventures Unlimited, 2008).  And the Freemason hexagram and the "peace" signs are Satanic symbols (Whale website).
 
The "peace" symbol adopted in 1958 is supposed to represent semaphoric flag signs for the initials ND signifying nuclear disarmament  but  is really a Satanic symbol and goes back to the Middle Ages and even Antiquity (Witchcraft, Magic, and Alchemy; the Peace Sign and Satanism-Jesus is Saviour website; Whale website), which represents a broken cross, used by Germany's  3rd Panzer Division in WW2 but without the circle (Wikipedia). It was ordered by the National Socialists that it must appear on German death notices and was part of the official inscription prescribed for the gravestones of Nazi officers of the dread SS. It is also a rune meaning death (Jesus is Saviour).  It was suggested by pro-communist Bertrand Russell, a Freemason, member of the Fabian Society, which is under the Committee of 300 (Conspiratorial Heirarchy-Past and Present Institutions-Biblioteca Pléyades), and the Clarté secret society (Jesus is Saviour; Illuminati News) and the Bertrand Russell "Peace" Foundation is also under the control of the Committee of 300 (Conspiratorial Heirarchy-Special Foundations and Interest Groups-Biblioteca Pléyades). Knowing the hypocrisy of the "peace" movement and its support for war and the large presence and manipulation of the Obcurantists  the Satanic symbol  is most appropriate for it.

And, of course, there are 9 and 11 which played an important part in the terrible events of 2001. In movies we see several signs of 9/11 long before it happened (Hollywood 9/11: 9/11-"Illuminati" Conspiracy Archives).
 
 Gremlins, '84, the red indicator on the car radio dial is between 9 and 11.
 Independence day, '96, laptop countdown shows 9: 11: 01.
 the Peacemaker, '97, desks 9 and 11 are behind George Clooney at JFK Airport.
 Traffic, 2000, opening sequence, 911 are on the drug boxes.
 the Patriot, 2000, in scene with Mel Gibson, the chair weighs 9 pds., 11 ozs., and it collapses under his weight!

And the horned devil hand sign is a Freemason symbol. Many people have been photographed using it including George Bush
(Wes Penre's "Illuminati" News-NWO Photo Album under "Occultism" and  You Tube), Prince Andrew, the Beatles, etc. The following, among others,  have been photographed or filmed using the Freemason handshake: Obama, Tony Blair, and the Pope (suprastarrtrd on You Tube).
 
The Masonic all-seeing Eye of Horus symbol takes on new meaning if what certain  technicians are saying is true. An electronic eye having to do with brightness in cable-ready TV sets is, they claim, 2-way, and so is the speaker (Wake Up America by Robert Howard, the forbiddenknowledge-click Brother on the left menu then Black Boxes, Marble Memorials, Cable TV, and Snooping for Black Boxes and Big Brother's Big Ears; see, also under Big Brother, Latest Privacy Nightmare: Money That Tracks You (Patricia Arquette in an interview with David Letterman in the 90s, seen on You Tube, revealed that she worked for a time as a private detective and said also that the metallic strips on bills can be tracked) and Intel and Microsoft; see, as well, Secret Black Box Probe Will Monitor Web Activity -RINF News web site; Black Boxes and Big Brother's Big Ears is also on zianet). The report seems to be credible but needs corroboration and confirmation and if, indeed has veracity,  is also especially disturbing. 

It should be noted that Howard uses "occultist"  and "occult" to mean Obscurantist and Obscurantism, which is unfortunately and regrettably a common practice and egregious error,  and  is like using "religious people" to mean Satanists. Secret societies are not part of the occult, although they sometimes include some of the occult; they go under criminology, history, abnormal psychology, and politics. Most occultists are not Obscurantists and are normal and legitimate.

Another egregious violation of privacy is dressing room nudity and partitionless shower stall rows, which are in nature and essence homosexual practices, or at least have homosexual overtones, and are a sign of abnormal extraversion. This very  questionable practice of sports nudity had its origin in ancient Athens which was largely homosexual (see the entry for Socrates in the IEP (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy)) and the word "gymnasium" comes from that, "gymnos" meaning naked. This violation is as puzzling as it is disturbing because it is accepted without question and without thinking by practically everyone.

Also, it has been discovered the NSA spys us through the Internet (Comment la NSA nous espionne-LeMonde.fr-Daily Motion; and on You Tube: les USA espionnent le monde entier y compris sa propre population; Espionnage américain: la colère monte chez les Européens; X-Keyscore: l'espion absolu de la NSA) using powerful software: Prism (in partnership with the major players on the web), Upstream (which intercepts information), and X-Keyscore ( an espionage search engine). And the NSA knows when one is on a VPN (Virtual Private Network)  and stores the information for a later time when it will be able to decode it.

The ET Connection 

This is dealt with under UFOs in Page 2

Conclusion
 
So there is a connection between ancient history, secret societies, Satanism, WWI and II, fascism, communism, school shootings,  9/11, the Iraq War,  the "peace" movement, the media complex, the international banking cartel, the Federal Reserve, the space program, and UFOs. They, and more, are all interrelated. Thus the ETs are ultimately responsible for most of the wars, diseases, violent crime, and poverty throughout  the history of our world.  One could say the cryptocracy thesis, including ETs,  is  a unifying theory. Even if we exclude the ET connection and the interrelatedness, there is still the same problem: organized crime runs the planet, which is very evident--one needs only to look at the chaos and misery that dominates it and which has dominated it for many millenia. 

The anti-truth movement uses 2 basic strategies. One is mass mind control, brainwashing, social engineering, and public manipulation. Outside of chemical and electronic mind control, this requires the gullibility, naivity, and ignorance of the population, and its willingness to believe anything the political, military, media, and scientific establishments say, a willingness which is tragically very much present. The 3 major tactics used are:

        1. Denial of the existence of secret societies (or their power and influence and criminal nature), in other words, denial of organized crime not officially acknowledged; of conspiracies (or any not officially acknowledged), again, in other words, denial of organized crime not officially acknowledged; and of any evidence supporting covert criminal activities (whether done by UFOs, the military, intel agencies, pedophilia rings, etc.); in an attempt to discourage any measures against them, for if people believe there is no organized crime outside of that which is conventionally recognized, then there will be fewer measures against it, if any, in other words, it is an attempt  at preventing or reducing the effectiveness of the opposition. Denial of organized crime is support for it. This is the same tactic used by the luny left, which supports violent crime, in denying that crime is a problem, which is, of course, just as laughable and callous as denial of conspiracies and secert societies, and only a fool or a lunatic would believe it. This, naturally, requires the gullibility, naivity, and ignorance of the population, and its willingness to believe anything the political, military, media, and scientific establishments say, a willingness which is tragically very much present. Also, it should be pointed out that organized crime includes secret societies, espionage agencies, the UFO cover-up, UFO activities, drug cartels, the international banking system, tyranies, biker gangs, street gangs, radical movements, urban guerrilla groups,  Big Labour, Big Pharma, psychiatry, child trafficking-pedophilia rings, and Satanic cults.    
        2. Smearing, defamation, and infantile derision of the truth movement, which is a psych warfare tactic used by totalitarian regimes, including the basic and central idea that anything not following the official line is insanity, and synonymizing convention with rationality, which is a joke, so when they say "there must be a rational explanation", they really mean "there must  be a conventional explanation." This is, of course, where the projection (a neurotic defense mechanism) comes in, which is also a bullying tactic. 
        3. Infiltration and control of the truth movement in order to steer it in a direction favourable to officialdom.

The other strategy is the oppression, repression, and suppression of unconventional opinion, science, and technology that are threats to the status quo and the power structure of the Obscurantists, including the cover up of UFOs, Nazi technology, and information on their criminal activities, using various criminal tactics, including the setting up of a repressive social climate (the luny left) where political "correctness" reigns.
        
All the facts presented by the truth movement are a matter of historical and public record. By contrast, the anti-truth cult, which is a reactionay element in society and a lunatic fringe, is  characterized by crank skepticism, which is also obscurantism, which uses compulsive mud-slinging and compulsive lieing,  believes  that conspiracies can't happen, that there are no secret societies or that they are all legitimate, that everything is paranoia, that any statement they don't agree with is a rant, that the truth, the facts, and the evidence don't matter, have no concept of concern, awareness, nor ethics, are totally subjective, have a minimal ability to reason, and oppose reason and logic. It claims  that any conspiracy thesis,  no matter how plausible and well-founded, is necessarily wrong simply because it is a conspiracy thesis, not considering the evidence as to whether or not there is  a conspiracy or wrong-doing. The beliefs that there are no conspiracies, that any statement of truth is a rant,  and that everything is paranoia are psychotic delusions (false beliefs that can't be shaken by reason, that persist, and are abnormal and harmful), and compulsive mud-slinging, projection,  and compulsive lieing are signs of psychopathy. Such behaviour and thinking is exactly what you would expect from psychopaths so they are true to form.

The lunatic fringe anti-truth movement fits very well with the maladaptive personality type of abnormal extraversion, traditionally and popularly called the choleric personality -- compulsive lieing, abusive behaviour, extreme irrationality, psychotic delusions, compulsive denial and projection, hypocrisy, pathological stubbornness, narrow-mindedness,  and rigidity, low intelligence, psychopathy, extreme skepticism, addiction to orthodoxy,   and choleric and hysterical reaction to any new or different ideas.

They are hypocrites in more ways than one because they do projection (the pot calling the kettle black), which is a psychopathic symptom, so it is not surprising as it comes from the criminally insane. They pretend to be for truth when they seek to suppress it or don't consider it, pretend to be rational and logical when they are the exact opposite, and believe in conspiracies themselves like the plot to make the JFK assassination look like a conspiracy that would have to exist if there was no conspiracy behind the asassination,  the supposed plot to perpetrate a hoax at Roswell or to cover up some secret government project, the Watergate break-in, the Iran-Contra affair, and the conspiracy behind 9/11 but pretending, even given the idea  that it was the Arabs behind it, that there was no conspiracy.  They are so incoherent and idiotic that they believe in conspiracies and don't at the same time.
  
Contrary to the lunatic fringe's ludicrous claims, it takes only 2 to make a conspiracy so they are quite common  and they are tried in courts on a frequent basis and any crime committed by a group is necessarily a conspiracy. In fact, conspiracy is part of the Criminal Code and  conspiracy theory is a very mainstream concept. But the idea of a conspiracy is usually secondary or irrelavant as the point or the major consideration is not that there was a plot but that there was serious criminality aside from any plot. The accusation of "conspiracy theory"  is lame and inane and comes from criminal and mentally unbalanced people who are members of criminal cults, crank skeptics, and useful idiots as they are called.

In some cases, the primary point is that a crime was committed so conspiracy theories  should be called criminality or crime  theories. For instance, the theory that HAARP caused Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters is a crime theory, the question of whether it was done by 1 person or a group, if it was a crime,  is irrelevant or secondary. In others, the contraversy  is whether there was a conspiracy or a lone perpetrator (e.g., the Kennedy assassinations), and in others whether there is a larger conspiracy (e.g., 9/11), and in still others, what kind of conspiracy (e.g., the Roswell incident). So in 3 of these 4 types of cases, the conspiracy aspect is irrelevant or secondary, and the fact that there was a conspiracy is contested only by the lunatic fringe, which maintains that there are no conspiracies, so they believe Fawkes, Booth, Oswald, and Bin Laden acted alone, which is obviously false, and ludicrous to boot, and is  a psychotic delusion. In the Oswald case, the evidence indicates he didn't do it at all, the Senate Committee in '79 said it was a conspiracy, and Files and Rosselli confessed

The lunatic fringe  would have us believe that the co-conspirators caught and executed in the Lincoln assassination were actually optical illusions (there is strong evidence the Obscurantists were behind this crime also), and that the Gunpowder Plot never happened, that the Watergate break-in and 9/11  were done by only one person. It  would also have us believe that the  Camorra and Carbonari in Italy (the latter called forest Masonry), Assassins in the Near East, the Leopard Men and Mau Mau in Africa,  the Thugs in India, and Tian Di Hui (which began as Masonic) in China didn't exist or were legitimate groups yet they are generally acknowledged, and known to be,  criminal and violent secret societies. There is also the 3K, and we might include the Mafia, as well, considered by some to be a secret society, the former having been created by Freemasons, chiefly Albert Pike, the latter by Italian revolutionary and Freemason Giuseppe Mazzini as already pointed out. They would also have us believe that the Obscurantists don't exist or that they are good guys and that the Skull and Bones have no connection to them in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. As well, it is often  a question of what kind of conspiracy. In the Roswell incident the question is if there was a conspiracy to cover-up  a government accident or a craft from space (or a Nazi craft according to Joseph Farrell). In 9/11 it is whether there was an Arab conspiracy or one by the American government. They would also have us believe that the goal isn't world domination even though the Nazis have been proven to be heavily involved in, and closely associated with, these very secret societies, a fact which they also deny. As well, they in effect, accuse Bobby Kennedy, Jacqui Kennedy, and 81% of the American people of being schizophrenic because they believe there was a conspiracy in the JFK assassination when the incidence of schizophrenia is only 1%. Such mindless  and ludicrous accusations say everything about the anti-truth movement  and nothing about crime theorists.

The accusations are a problem for secret societies and their affiliates because they're the ones who are fingered, and sometimes are obviously involved (Jesuits in the Gunpowder Plot, Booth was a Knight of the Golden Circle, the precursor of the KKK, founded by  Freemasons, and the assassin of Archduke Ferdinand was with the Black Hand)  so they are the ones who mount these fanatical smear campaigns (mostly done by the CIA with its puppets the media and scientific establishments) , which could only be done by the most brutal, deranged, and heinous criminals , behaving like cornered rats, which   have absolutely no credibility, and push laughable ideas out of desperation or plain stupidity, with the useful idiots,  naturally going along with it all, campaigns and ideas which in themselves suggest criminal motivations and Nazi and secret society connections or just plain idiocy. Some crime theorists are themselves members of secret societies, e.g.,  Jones, Tsiarion, Icke, Maxwell, possibly Marrs--it's called controlled opposition.

The pseudo-skeptics in the anti-truth movement, which may be the majority,  much like in the UFO debate where many "skeptics" are actually cover-up agents or cover-up supporters, i.e., members of the Obscurantists, say the same things as the crank skeptics except that they know full well there is a conspiracy and obviously do the propaganda to protect the secret societies and their criminal activities, but are otherwise much the same as the true skeptics. And it is basically empiricism, the philosophy that rejects reason, known for exactly the same things. The same people who oppose heterodox science and the paranormal oppose truth also in the political arena. The anti-truth movement includes them, as well. 

The anti-truth cult's risible claims are easily debunked, but most people are too mentally programmed to be apathetic, complacent, skeptical, and in denial  to accept the facts. The same pessimism is expressed by Svali,  Jeff Rense, and others. And even if there was a deprogramming it would take several decades to accomplish. Also, if they did something it would be too little too late, but, in any case, it would probably require military action (unless the Ben Fulford ultitmatum is successful) which could only be successful if done by a  benign civilization advanced enough. It looks like there aren't any. So some might say why should we believe it if there's nothing we can do about it anyways, and if it's troubling and disturbing, to boot? My answer is: it's the principle of the thing, it's a question of truth.
