In a system that claims to be democratic, a question of its legitimacy remains. Does the American public really have the power that the government says that we do? Conspiracies concerning the government have always been the center of many discussions and arguments. Cases like the Kennedy assassination, to even Elvis stories have gained a lot of attention. One conspiracy that has missed the public eye is the existence of the Illuminati.

The word Illuminati derives from the Latin word Illumine, which means, "To be enlightened." (The history of the Illuminati. Myron Fagon Epic Tree Video, 1964). They feel that they are superior and possess a higher level of intellect. Their goal is create a one-world government, which is known as the "New World Order." (Still, Willam T.

New World Order: The ancient Plan of Secret Societies. Fresno, California: Expression Publishing P. 23) Their means by achieving this exists through the media and the money system. In the following paragraphs I will prove the existence of the Illuminati, the part that our government in conjunction with the world governments play in the "plan;" and how the Masons tie into this conspiracy. (The history of the Illuminati.

Myron Fagon Epic Tree Video, 1964) The Illuminati has existed since ancient times. The ancient Africans were part of this elite group. Through times and generations, the Illuminati has re-incarnated itself. (De barros, Jason. Personal Interview. 4 Apr.

2000. ) This reincarnation took place in 1776 by German Adam Weinsap. Adam Weis haupt was a professor of canon law at the University of Ingolstadt. He started the Order of the Illuminati on May 1, 1776, originally calling it the Order of "Perfectibilists." His plan was to use the Grand Orient Lodges of Europe as a filtering mechanism through which to screen out talent and build a hierarchy of inner circles. (The history of the Illuminati. Myron Fagon Epic Tree Video, 1964) The word Illuminati was viewed as an "evil" term and was never used during the 1800's.

(The history of the Illuminati. Myron Fagon Epic Tree Video, 1964) As time went on, power was gained. What many do not know is that the Illuminati was behind this killing of the Rominovs, the Czar of Russia along with his family. (Carr, William Guy.

Pawns in the game San Fransisco: Imation Publishing 1977) This occurred because the Czar learned of the Illuminati's plan. What many fail to realize is that the Illuminati have been behind every major war and major political issue since 1776. (The history of the Illuminati. Myron Fagon Epic Tree Video, 1964) Since their objective is power, money equates to power, and war brings revenue. The Illuminati has a four- step operation in which Weinsap created for success.

 1. Monetary and sex bribery was to be used to obtain control of men already in high places in the various levels of all governments and other fields of endeavor. Once influential persons had 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, threats of financial ruin, public exposure, and physical harm, even death to themselves and loved members of their families.  2. The Illuminati who were on the faculty of colleges and universities were to cultivate students possessing exceptional mental ability and who belonged to well-bred families with international leanings, and recommend them for special training in Internationalism. Such training was to be provided by granting scholarships, like the Rhodes Scholarship, to those selected by the Illuminati.

All such scholars were to be first persuaded and then convinced that men of special talent and brains had the right to rule those less gifted on the grounds that the masses do not know what is best for them physically, mentally, and spiritually.  3. All influential people who were trapped to come under the control of the Illuminati, plus the students who had been specially educated and trained, were to be used as agents and placed behind the scenes of all governments as experts and specialists. They would advise the top executives to adopt policies which would, in the long run, serve the secret plans of the Illuminati's one world conspiracy, and bring about the destruction of the governments and religions they were elected or appointed to serve.  4. They were to obtain absolute control of the press so that all news and information could be slanted to convince the masses that a one world government is the only solution to our many and varied problems.

They were also to own and control all the national radio and TV channels. (The history of the Illuminati. Myron Fagon: Epic Tree Video, 1964) The Illuminati consists of the top 1% of the world's population. (The history of the Illuminati. Myron Fagon: Epic Tree Video, 1964) This way of thinking is categorized as fascist. Fascism approaches politics in two central areas, populist and elitist.

Populist in that it seeks to activate 'the people' as a whole against perceived oppressors or enemies and to create a nation of unity. The elitist approach treats as putting the people's will on one select group, or most often one supreme leader called El Duce, from whom all power proceeds downward. The two most recognized names that go along with Fascism are Italy's Benito Mussolini and Germany's Adolf Hitler. The Illuminati falls into the "Elitist" category. Fascism seeks to organize an organization led mass movement in an effort to capture the state power. Which in essence is the main goal of the Illuminati.

The world's politicians and most powerful people are affiliated with this organization. Our very own US government is part of the Illuminati conspiracy. As I mentioned, the Illuminati's objective is power, and money equates to power. This is the major reason why the Illuminati controls our federal reserve system. They have also set up similar establishments in every major world market with the exception of Asia.

(Still, P. 136) There are thousands of foreign troops in Australia, including troops from the United States of America. They have obviously been there for some time now. What is taking place is known as 'war games', and often remains secret. It is all alarming, as those who are investigating the New World Order sense that global forces are manipulating us in order to bring our nation under the full control of the international elitists. (Cooper, William.

Behold the Pale Horse. P 38-41 Sedona, Arizona: Light Technology Publishing 1991) The training of soldiers for rural and urban search of towns and homes is an obvious finger that points to "foul play" with in the world government. Why would U. S.

soldiers be in Australia in the first place? In addition to this, is the Pyramid with the Latin inscription on the back of our dollar bill. This symbol appeared for the first time on our dollar bill during Roosevelt's term while he was passing the "New Deal" policy to get us out of the Great Depression. (Carr, William Guy. Pawns in the game San Fransisco: Imation Publishing 1977) The symbol is the "All Seeing Eye" of the Illuminati. The Latin inscription "Novus Ordo Seclorum" translates to "New World Order." (Daubert, Joyce. Personal Interview.

Oct. 1999. ) This as I mentioned before is the ultimate goal. Further proof of the United States participating in this conspiracy lies in the secret treaty of Verona. This Treaty took place under the congressional record, under the US senate in 1916. The treaty was written in 1822.

It stated the pact between England and the United States. The Royal families in England during this time were obviously very powerful and wealthy. Today, they are still known as the "Black Nobility." This treaty stated that the US was still in some way tied to England. The issue is, during the senate hearing in 1916, they refused to ratify the treaty, meaning that it was, and to this day, never voided.

The Black Nobility does not recognize any rule besides their "divine right to rule." They still work today since they still believe that the US still belongs to England. This is crucial due to the fact that the treaty was never voided. (Cooper, P: 103-107) If no conspiracy exists, then why didn't the senate ratify this treaty once it was brought to their attention? The answer may lye in yet another organization known as the Masons. Roosevelt, along with many other US presidents belonged to the family or organization known as the Masons.

The Masons have existed for centuries. The ancient Masons took part in satanic rituals such as drinking wine from a human skull. (Morey Robert. The Truth About the Masons. P. 57; Eugene Oregon: Harvest House Publishers, 1993) The Masons consist of many of the world's political figures, including past as well as present.

Freemasonry boasts 18 Presidents, including Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and George Washington, 41 Federal Judges, 60 Congressmen, 14 members of the Judiciary Committee and 18 Senators. (Morey, P. 94) One can only guess at the numbers involved within the many governmental departments. There is no doubt that Masonic conspirators plotted against this nation from its very inception to the present hour. In doing my own research on this topic I discovered something very interesting about the lay out of Washington DC. I took a map of the downtown, and constructed something that is very eye opening.

Shown below is a map of America's Capital Washington DC; Embalmed on the street layout of this city are Masonic symbols revealing the true power behind the USA. The featured landmarks include The White House, US Capitol, Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial and the Supreme Council Of The 33 rd Degree Of Freemasonry's Headquarters named the House Of The Temple where Masons come from all over the World to receive their 33 rd Degree initiation. A curious piece of the Masonic puzzle is the actual street layout for our Capital city, Washington, DC. You see, the city was laid out in the form of the central Masonic Symbols, the Square, the Compass, the Rule and the Pentagram. I know it is very hard to see since the map is small, but take any good street map of downtown Washington, DC and find the Capitol Building.

Facing the Capitol from the Mall and using the Capitol building as the head or top of the Compass, the left leg is represented by Pennsylvania Ave. and the right leg, Maryland Ave. The Square is found in the usual Masonic position with the intersection of Canal St. and Louisiana Ave. The left leg of the Compass stands on the White House and the right leg stands on the Jefferson Memorial. The circle drive and short streets behind the building form the head and ears of what Satanists call the "Goat Of Mendes" or Goat's head! Sitting on top of the White House is an inverted 5 pointed star, or Pentagram.

It faces North, with the point down in true occult fashion. It sits within the intersections of Connecticut and Vermont Avenues north to Dupont and Logan Circles, with Rhode Island and Massachusetts going to Washington Circle to the West and Mt. Vernon Square on the East. The Pentagram or five-pointed star is, of course, both a Masonic symbol and the ancient symbol of witchcraft. With its point facing down (or south, when placed on the ground) it is especially associated with Satanism. Satanists can be found wearing the inverted pentagram frequently; and it appears on the cover of many black magic books, including the "Satanic Bible." In this form, it is also the emblem of the Eastern Star, the women's Masonic organization.

The center of the pentagram is 16 th St. where, thirteen blocks due north of the very center of the White House, the Masonic House of The Temple sits at the top of this occult iceberg. The Washington Monument stands in perfect line to the intersecting point of the form of the Masonic Square, within the hypotenuse of that right triangle sits many of the headquarters buildings for the most powerful departments of government, such as the Justice Dept. , U. S. Senate and the Internal Revenue Service.

The Illuminati was presumed to have been dispersed by the end of the century but some believe that Illuminati members chose instead to conceal themselves and their plans within the cloak of Freemasonry. (Still, P. 52) The French division of the Masons gave the United States the Statue of Liberty as a gift. This is common knowledge, and a plaque inside the statue states this. What is not known is the torch of "Freedom" that she is holding is really the "Promithian torch," which is the torch of the Illuminati. (Austin, S; "The End": Priority Records 1998) To conclude, this document has shed light on the conspiracy theory of the Illuminati, Masons and the US involvement.

If this conspiracy does not exist, then why do we stair at their symbol every day on our dollar bill? Why is our Statue of Liberty holding the Promithien torch, which is the torch of the Illuminati? Why did the Masons give us this statue? Why is the Money system set up in the same way across the world? Why is our Nation's capitol embedded with Masonic and Satanic symbols? And furthermore, why did the US senate not ratify the Treaty of Verona once it was brought to their attention? These are questions that everybody needs to examine. The US government has always been covering their tracks and many pieces to our historical puzzle have not fit. Now they do, and as the picture comes into focus, the American public needs to take a deep look at how society and politics work, and look beneath the surface. Works Cited: Morey, Robert.
