Whether the Priory de Sion of more modern times is identical with this earlier order [Order of Zion], is difficult to establish. It may well be. The fact that the new order was registered and closely affiliated with Switzerland's most illustrious Freemasonic Order, Grand Lodge Alpina, certainly gives us food for thought. This Swiss Order is itself in command over the infamous P2 Lodge of Freemasons in Rome. And P2 certainly exists.
In my 1982 expose of this crime, we showed that Aldo Moro, a loyal member of the Christian Democrat Party, was murdered by assassins controlled by P2 Masonry with the object of bringing Italy into line with Club of Rome plans to de-industrialize the country and considerably reduce its population. Moro's plans to stabilize Italy through full employment and industrial and political peace, would have strengthened Catholic opposition to Communism, and make the destabilization of the Middle East, (a prime goal), that much harder for the Committee [of 300] to achieve.
P-2 became deeply involved in many underhanded banking transactions, including control of Banco Ambrosiano.
After World War II, some five hundred Lodges promptly resurfaced in Italy. The Lodges were lavishly financed with OSS funds thoughtfully provided by the taxpayers of the United States. Money was coming in in such amounts that a super-secret group was required to handle it. One Licio Gelli had joined the Grand Oriente d'Italia in 1963; he now organized a new lodge, which he called Propaganda Due, or P-2. It was named after Mazzini's Lodge, Propaganda Uno, which he had founded to lead the Revolution of 1848...Within a short time, almost every prominent official, banker, and editor of Italy was a member of P-2
The Elite P2 Freemasonry Lodge controlled by the Mussolini fascist, Lucio Gelli, was the force behind the Red Brigades terrorists in the 1970s who planted the devastating bomb at Bologna railway station and murdered the leading politician, Aldo Morro, after Morro had rejected Henry Kissinger’s order to change his policies. P2 and the Hambros-Carrington connected Michel Sindona were also involved in the control of the Vatican Bank. Another casualty was the Italian P2 Freemason and banker, Roberto Calvi, who was hanged under Blackfriars Bridge near the City of London’s Square Mile in 1982 after the scandal became public.
...what is most interesting, is that a new development has been emerging that concerns an occult Freemasonic order, operating under the name of P-2, or Propaganda Due. It is made up of some of the most profoundly significant, right wing, fascist, Freemasonic figures in all of Europe. This is actually true, because the man who was the Grand Master of this Masonic order (P-2), Licio Gelli, was invited by Ronald Reagan's Presidential campaign to appear at his inauguration. There are pictures of Ronald Reagan with Licio Gelli. Gelli supported the fascist Mussolini in World War II, then was forced to flee to Argentina, where he supported dictator Juan Peron. Gelli finally returned to Italy in the 1960s and that is when he joined the Grande Oriente, as it was known in Italy, meaning the Masonic Order of Freemasonry. With the support of the Grande Oriente, Gelli was cleared for the his war crimes that he'd been charged with. Gelli, as Grand Master of P-2, made it the most violent and powerful secret political organization in Italy. A former U.S. intelligence officer who became involved with the group called P-2 "a state within a state." Much like the Vatican. There are clearly "political ties" between these organizations and world governments as evidenced by Gelli and Reagan. We don't normally see them on the surface.
P-2 was a Masonic banking fraternity working with and through the Vatican.
Probably the most notorious Freemason lodge is the P2 lodge in Italy. This group has been implicated in everything from bribery to assassinations. P2 is directly connected to the Vatican, the Knights of Malta, and to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. It is powerful and dangerous. The P2 lodge has succeeded in infiltrating the Vatican and has scored a coup of tremendous significance: the Pope, John Paul II, has lifted the ban against Freemasonry. Many high-level members of the Vaticanare now Freemasons.
Propaganda Due, known as P-2, a super-secret society pledged to overthrowing representative governments and re-instituting Fascism, the Iron Fist.
P-2 has members in Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and the U.S., including judges, legislators, journalists, executive department and cabinet members, espionage officials, and civil and military brass.
Reported members include: Former American secret political police chief George Herbert Walker Bush and retired war industry chieftain Alexander Haig, once head of NATO.
