The headquarters of the Illuminati moved to Switzerland during the First World War and to New York after the Second World War (the Harold Pratt Building). The Rockefellers instead of the Rothschilds now funded the Illuminati
In 1786, Marquis de Mirabeau founded an Illuminati lodge in a Jacobin monastery in Paris. These Illuminati members soon called themselves "Jacobins." Another Illuminati group was founded the same year in Frankfurt under the name the "All Seeing Eye." This group was later to be infamous as the Frankists. The lodge was led by the extremist Jews Jakob Frank and Michael Hess, the latter employed by Meyer Amschel Rothschild.
There is sufficient evidence that a number of societies of the Illuminati have been established in this land. They are doubtless striving to secretly undermine all our ancient institutions, civil and sacred. These societies are clearly leagued with those of the same order in Europe...We live in an alarming period. The Enemies of all order are seeking our ruin. Should infidelity generally prevail, our independence would fall, or course. Our republican government would be annihilated.
...it is more interesting to learn...that Karl Marx was not the real founder of Communist world revolution. Its true father was Adam Weishaupt, founder of the freemasonic order of the Illuminati
"Freedom is the freedom to say two plus two make four."
I have been convinced that we, as an Order, have come under the power of some very evil occult Order, profoundly versed in science both occult and otherwise, though not infallible, their methods being Black Magic, that is to say, electro-magnetic power, hypnotism and powerful suggestion. We are convinced that the Order is being controlled by some Sun Order, after the nature of the Illuminati, if not by that Order itself
It is not clear whether the Freemasonic echelon were aware of the exact identity of the cult we now expose. It is likely that many masons (particularly those obsessed with Egyptology) might have approved of the take-over of their order. In any case, by the time the Illuminati were exposed it was too late for Freemasonry. The French Grand Orient Lodge was one of the very first to fall under Illuminist control. The senior masons from the Houses of Lorraine and Guise may have had something to do with it.
According to Jan van Helsing, a prolific author on all things associated with secret societies, the term "illuminati" came into common usage in fourteenth century Germany, where it was applied to the high initiates of the Brotherhood of the Snake
The Freemasonic Order of the Illuminati was founded on May 1st because of this day's significance in Solar Cult ritual. As Albert Pike himself wrote in his Morals and Dogma, the pagan festival of May Day was a "festival in honor of the sun." It is this Egyptian Atonism that controls Freemasonry. This, we believe, is the secret tradition that is revealed to the higher degree members of the masonic secret societies.
If someone shines a very bright light in front of our eyes there are two main reactions that occur. First we are blinded. Secondly, the person shining the light is concealed by that light. They have used light as a weapon and as a shield. Take this analogy up a notch to the metaphysical level and we gain insight into the manner in which the Illuminati, the Princes of Light, operate to attain the power that does not belong to them by right. Such is the intrigue of the Luciferians.
Brilliant and well trained by the Jesuits in the conspiratorial methods of access to power, young Weishaupt decided to organize a body of conspirators, determined to free the world from the Jesuitical rule of Rome and help humanity back to the pristine Christian faith of the hermetic martyrs. He is reputed to have been initiated by a German merchant named Kolmer, who had spent many years in Egypt, into a secret doctrine based on Manichaeism. Mayday of 1776, Weishaupt founded his own sect of the Very Perfectibles - better known as the Illuminati - with five original members, self-described as reformist libertarians, partisans of absolute equality
This endeavor to spawn apparently anti-Catholic secret societies was probably spurred on when Rome's agents noticed, and began to be concerned about, bone fide sects and societies that sought to undermine the awesome and ever-encroaching dominance of the popes. The most important and successful of these apparently anti-Catholic societies was known as the "Order of the Illuminati." Far from being anti-Catholic, as most of its members believed, it was founded by Catholic Jesuit Adam Weishaupt and its members and branches operated throughout the world to serve Rome's long term agenda. Its existence prevented real rebellion against the Church and guaranteed its longevity. Like other similar organizations (Jacobins, Alumbrados of Spain,Theosophists, Cistercians, Freemasons, etc) it attracted many disgruntled princes and dukes and prospered from their donations and patronage. The founders and leaders of these orders did a lot of homework and they learned a great deal about anti-Catholic sentiments. They succeeded infilling their lodges with those very souls who desired to end the power threatening their families, lands, beliefs, and freedom. It was easy for the masters of the lodges to lead neophytes through initiations and rites that ostensibly rebuked royalty, imperialism, and dogmatic religion. The masters knew what the neophytes did not. They knew that these institutions were not half as important as the will of Aton which permitted their existence. Kings and priests could be rebuked and humbled, Aton could not.
Charles de Lorraine: Patron of the Illuminati. Researchers who imagine that the Illuminati were anti-royalist are grievously misinformed. Although this is the impression the secret society's elite members attempted to generate, it is anything but the truth. European royals were, and still are, the power behind the world's prominent secret societies. Their interests have never been the overthrow of orthodox religion or monarchy, or the liberation of humanity. This idea existed only in the mind's of gullible, misinformed lower rank members.
Albert Pike was Grand Master of American Freemasonry and head of the Illuminati.
It is not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati and the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am.. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a separation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.
Weishaupt's [Founder of the Bavarian Illuminati] writings reveal the extent of his cynicism:
'...in concealment lies a great part of our strength. For this reason we must cover ourselves in the name of another society. The lodges that are under Freemasonry are the most suitable cloak for our high purpose.'
'Seek the society of young people,' he advises one of his co-conspirators. 'Watch them, and if one of them pleases you, lay your hand on him.'
'Do you realize sufficiently what it means to rule - to rule in a secret society? Not only over the more important of the populace, but over the best men, over men of all races, nations and religions, to rule without external force ... the final aim of our Society is nothing less than to win power and riches ... and to obtain mastery of the world.'
Following the discovery of these writings, the order was suppressed - but too late.
By 1789 there were some three hundred lodges in France, including sixty-five in Paris.
The seized writings revealed that the ancient secret wisdom and the secret supernatural powers promulgated within the Illuminati and always been a cynical invention and a fraud. An aspirant progressed through the grades only to discover that the spiritual element in the teachings were merely a smokescreen. Spirituality was derided, spat upon. Jesus Christ's teachings, it was said, were really purely political in content, calling for the abolition of all property, of the institution of marriage and all family ties, all religion. The aim of Weishaupt and his co-conspirators was to set up a society run on purely materialistic grounds, a revolutionary new society - and the place where they would test their theories, they had decided, would be France.
Finally it was whispered in the candidate's ear that the ultimate secret was that there was no secret.
In this way he was inducted into a nihilistic and anarchistic philosophy that appealed to the candidate's worst instincts. Weishaupt gleefully anticipated tearing down, destroying civilization, not to set people free, but for the pleasure of imposing his will upon others.
Weishaupt joined the Freemasons in 1777, and soon many of the Illuminati followed, infiltrating the lodges. They quickly rose to positions of seniority.
Like the Jesuits, the Illuminati brotherhood was run on military lines. Members were requested to surrender individual judgement and will. Like earlier secret societies Weishaupt's Illuminati promised to reveal an ancient wisdom. Higher and more powerful secrets were promised to those who progressed up the ladder of initiations. Initiates worked in small cells. Knowledge was shared between cells on what modern security services call a 'need to know' basis - so dangerous was this newly rediscovered knowledge.
The story of the Illuminati is one of the darker episodes in the secret history and it has blackened the reputation of secret societies ever since.
During the medieval times there sprang up in Europe a mysterious sect called the ILLUMINATI. The story of the pearl of great price became the most important part of their ritual, and members of the order were dedicated to the search for this pearl in the same way that the Knights of the Round Table sought for the Grail.
Thus we find from Rev. Morse's investigation that the state of Virginia had long been infiltrated, and was being "run" as a colony by the French Illuminati.
It has long been suspected that secret societies, under the influence and direction of France, holding principles subversive of our religion and government, existed somewhere in this country....I have, my brethren, an official, authenticated list of the names, ages, places of nativity, professions &c. of the officers and members of a Society of Illuminati consisting of one hundred members, instituted in Virginia, by the Grand Orient of France....The date of their institution is 1786.
By 1785, fifteen lodges of the Illuminati had been set up in America.
From the Illuminati headquarters at Frankfurt came the twin Canaanite evils which have since plagued the world, Zionism and Communism.
From its inception, the alliance of the Illuminati and the Freemasons had a clearly defined program:
1. abolition of all ordered government
2. abolition of private property
3. abolition of inheritance
4. abolition of patriotism
5. abolition of all religions
6. abolition of family, morality, and control of education of children
7. creation of a world government
On July 16, 1782, Weishaupt formally combined the Order of the Illuminati with the Freemasons at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad. The combined groups now had over three million members, including some of the most powerful men in Europe.
...the conspirators downed the cloak of philanthropy and humanitarianism to conceal their revolutionary and subversive activities.
When and if their blueprint for world control, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, is discovered and exposed, they would wipe all the Jews off the face of the Earth in order to divert suspicions from themselves. If you think this is far fetched bear in mind that they committed Hitler, a liberal socialist himself, who was financed by Krupp, Kennedy, the Warburgs and the Rothschilds to incinerate 600,000 Jews.
So-called modern Communism is apparently the same hypocritical and deadly world conspiracy to destroy civilization that was founded by the Secret Order of the Illuminati in Bavaria on May 1, 1776, and that raised its hoary head in our colonies here at the critical period before the adoption of our Federal Constitution. The world revolution conspiracy appears to have been so well organized as to be ever continuing, and ever on the alert to take advantage of every opportunity presenting itself or that the conspirators could create.
The Illuminati did not disappear after the last century. They are still to be found in Germany, England and Russia where they have formed a queer sect in which castration is one of the features of initiation.
In 1788, after the suppression of Illuminism in Bavaria, Bahrdt and Knigge attempted to revive it in the " German Union " but it was not till 1810 that it really reappeared in Germany, this time under the name of The Tugendbund.
As the organization of the Illuminati developed, so did its ambitions, which ended in a plot to subvert Freemasonry to its aim of world dominion by any and all means.
Politically speaking, its tendencies were republican ; religiously, it was anti-christian. Its members were pledged to blind obedience to their superiors and this was insured by a strict system of secret confessions, and monthly reports checked by mutual espionage. Each individual used a pseudonym instead of his own name to help disguise his identity.
The intention of the Founder was to constitute a Protestant organization to fight Jesuitism, using Jesuitical methods. He was ably assisted in his efforts by Adolph, Baron von Knigge, Massenhausen, Bode, Anacharsis Clootz, Fischer, Zwack, Merz, Hertal, the Marquis de Constanza, Count Saviola, Bassus, Baron de Montgelas and Nicolai.
Behind Nicola'i was Moses Mendelssohn, and behind Mendelssohn the Jewish Kahal, the Jewish International World Government.
This society seems to have borne a close resemblance to the Order of the Golden Cross which was reorganized in 1767.
The main features of the Weishaupt plan of operation required his Illuminati to do the following things to help them to accomplish their purpose:
#1) Use monetary and sex bribery to obtain control of men already in high places in the various levels of all governments and other fields of endeavor. Once influential persons have fallen for the lies, deceits and temptations of the Illuminati they were to be held in bondage by application of political and other forms of blackmail, bled to financial ruin, public exposure and physical harm, even death to themselves and loved members of their families.
She [Arizona Wilder] says that each of the ruling 13 families of the global Brotherhood have their own council of 13. The most powerful council in the United States is based in California and among the members are Robert Caldwell, his son Richard, Jim Christensen, Richard Hoehn, Richard Bradbury, Jim Efferson, Fred Danger and Frank Cohen. But the head of that council, and the highest-ranked member of the Illuminati (Brotherhood) that she knows, is a man code-named Pindar from the Alsace-Lorraine region of France. Pindar means ‘Penis of the Dragon’. His name, Arizona says, is the Marquis de Libeaux.
The Illuminati degrees begin where the Freemasons degrees end so the 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite and tenth degree of the York Rite appear to be as far as anyone can go and for most Masons that’s true. But if someone is considered the right mentality and bloodline by the Brotherhood, they move on to the next level, the Illuminati degrees or to another of the highly secretive inner-circle groups like the Round Table which operate above the levels of the official secret societies like the Freemasons and the Knights of St John of Jerusalem (Malta). At their peak, the hierarchies of the secret societies fuse and connect with a common leadership and at that level they are all the same organization working to the same Agenda, despite their countless internal quarrels and conflicts.
May 1, 1776, was when Adam Weishaupt founded this order. This date is important, of course, in the Soviet Union and other communist countries, because May 1st, May Day, is considered to be the momentous date to all communist revolutionaries, when Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati.
You can't discuss the Illuminati without understanding the Jesuit order of the Catholic Church, because Adam Weishaupt himself, the founder of the Illuminati, was, in fact, a Jesuit priest.
Their goal is to rule the world. The doctrine of this group is not democracy or communism, but is a form of fascism. The doctrine is totalitarian socialism. You must begin to think correctly. The Illuminati are not Communists, but some Communists are Illuminati. (1) Monarchism (thesis) faced democracy (antithesis) in WWI, which resulted in the formation of communism and the League of Nations (synthesis). (2) Democracy and communism (thesis) faced fascism (antithesis) in WWII and resulted in a more powerful United Nations (synthesis). (3) Capitalism (thesis) now faces communism (antithesis) and the result will be the New World Order, totalitarian socialism (synthesis).
