The original founder of the Astor fortune was John Jacob Astor (1763-1884).
John Jacob Astor was born in Walldorf, Duchy of Baden (Germany) from a
Jewish bloodline. The Jewish origins have been hidden, and quite a number of
various ideas of the Astor’s heritage have been put into circulation by the
Astors. John Jacob Astor was a butcher in Walldorf. In 1784, he came to
America after a stop over in London, England. Although the story is that he
came to America penniless--and that may be true--he soon joined the Masonic
Lodge, and within 2-3 years had become the Master of the Holland Lodge No. 8
in N.Y. City. (This Holland Lodge is a prominent lodge in that many of its
members have good connections to the Illuminati elite. An example of just
one Lodge #8 member is Archibald Russell, 1811 - 1871, whose father was
President of a real hotbed of Illuminati action for many years: The Royal
Society of Edinburgh). By 1788, Astor was a master of masonic lodge #8. This
is rather interesting considering Astor could not speak English when he
arrived in America, and supposedly was very poor. John Jacob Astor was
always very famous for being coldhearted, anti-social, “a man who didn’t
have charm, wit or grace.” (This quote comes even from a relative of the
DuPont family who wrote a sympathetic Biography entitled The Astor Family.)
If this man lacked social graces and was so cold, and was so poor during his
first years in the U.S., why did he rise to such prominence in Freemasonry?
Certainly not because of his social graces. For instance, one time later in
life at a meal given for elites, when his hands got dirty at the table he
reached over and used the shirt of the man beside him to wipe his hands. The
original financial break came by carrying out a series of shady and crooked
real estate deals in the N.Y. city area. The next break came when two men
who are now known to have been in the Illuminati gave John Jacob Astor a
special government privilege. The two men were Pres. Jefferson and Secretary
Gallatin--both Illuminati members. The United States government had placed
an embargo on all U.S. ships from sailing with goods in 1807. But Astor got
special permission from these two men for his ship to sail with its cargo.
His ship sailed and made close to a $200,000 profit in that day’s money.
Astor strangely profited greatly from the War of 1812, which crippled almost
all the other American shippers. Astor also worked together with George
Clinton, another member of the Illuminati, on land deals. Even at that
period in history, British intelligence worked for the Committee of 300 and
for the Thirteen Top Families, it is interesting then, that John Coleman who
had access as an intelligence agent to secret documents, discovered that the
original John Jacob Astor was also a British secret agent. The Thirteen
Families have very intimate roles with the American and British intelligence
cults. Prior to 1817, John Jacob Astor entered into the fur trade and
remained the biggest player in the fur trade until he got out of it in 1834.
Over the years, he had managed to build up a monopoly. How he managed to
push everyone else out is a good question. Bear in mind, white people had
been trapping furs in the New World for several centuries, and the Indians
for who knows how long. Then this guy Astor comes along and in a few years
totally owns the whole industry! Again this could only have happened,
because the occult power of this Astor family gave them the right.
Obviously, others in the Committee of 300 had to step aside, if his position
in the hierarchy had not given Astor the right, believe me the other
families that originally controlled the fur trade would have gotten rid of
Astor. One result of his fur company, was that Astoria, OR was created.
Today, perhaps in honor of the family that originally took interest in it,
Astoria is a real hot-bed for the secret Satanic covens in Oregon. John
Jacob Astor did have a few helpful connections. Three of his relatives were
captains on clipper ships. He had connections in London to the Backhouse
family. He married a Todd, a family frequently associated with Satanism. His
wife, a Todd, was also connected to the influential Brevoort family. And
finally for some reason, John Jacob Astor was also on good relations with
the politicians of the day, perhaps because most of them were Freemasons
For a few years John Jacob Astor had participated in the opium trade, but in
1818-he publicly quit running opium to China. John Coleman in his good book
The  Conspirator’s Hierarchy:  The  Story  of  the Committee of 300, p. 131
notes, “John Jacob Astor made a hugh fortune out of the China opium trade
.... it was the
Committee of 300 who chose who would be allowed to participate in the
fabulously lucrative China opium trade, through its monopolistic BEIC, and
the beneficiaries of their largess remained forever wedded to the Committee
of 300.” Interestingly another Top 13 family, the Russells, was also one of
the lucky ones to get a slice of the China opium trade. It is clear
repeatedly from history that Astor was privy to inside information in the
government, and maintained his own courier system. John Jacob Astor bought
up large amounts of land in NY which land greatly increased in value. The
Financial Panic of 1837 allowed him to foreclose on a large number of
mortgages. John Jacob Astor’s wealth continued to skyrocket. As one
biography said, “When it came to a question of principle versus profit,
Astor was a practical man.” Put simply, he had no scruples. Astor had a
reputation for being a ruthless landlord. He also had the reputation of not
paying his legitimate debts. Astor became a banker, and sat on the board of
5 directors of the new national bank that Hamilton created for the U.S.
government called the Bank of the United States. Astor owned a large block
of the stock of the Bank of the United States. Astor also was fairly active
during his life as a Freemason, holding several more key positions in the
secret lodge life. John Jacob was the richest man in the United States. Note
this reference. Meyers, Gustavus. History of the Great American Fortunes.
London: Stationers Hall, 1909, p. 147 said, “Statistics issued in 1844 of
manufacturers in the United States showed a total gross amount of
$307,196,844 invested. Astor’s wealth, then, was one-fifteenth of the whole
amount invested throughout the territory of the United States...” Is having
1/15th of all of what American money is invested not rich? John Jacob Astor’
s descendents had a penchant for secrecy, and set up things to rule from
behind the scenes. In contrast, to some of the other top families, the
Astors perferred not to sit on boards of corporations they controlled. In
1890, a real estate expert calculated the Astors owned 1/20 of New York City
real estate. After making their fortune while residing in the New York area,
the Astors by and large have all gone to England. They still wield great
financial power in the United States through proxies. Forum  Magazine, Nov.
1889, commented that authorities estimated the Astors were worth $300,000,
but that that figure had to be an underestimate. Today, my estimate of the
Astors is that they are worth about 40 billion dollars. One of the many
foundations that the Astors created was the Vincent Astor Foundation, which
is controlled from England by the Astors and has in the range of $100
million tax exempt dollars. The Vincent Astor Foundation has typically given
to Catholic and Episcoplian needs, among other things. They also give money
to agencies opposed to private ownership of guns. They give money to NY’s
public library. Imagine how much influence that gives them, when the library
is receiving regular help for general support? A 1971 Foundation Directory
stated that the V. Astor foundation had its present emphasis on preventing
juvenile delinquency. Why don’t I trust the Astor’s in helping out with law
enforcement? The William Waldorf Foundation states that its purpose is
‘Promotion of mutual understanding and the diffusion of knowledge and
culture among the United States and the dominions, colonies, and countries
of the British Commonwealth.’ This sounds very similar to the public
statement of purpose that the secretive Pilgrim Soc. has given out to those
who need something about them. Assets for this foundation are a mere
$64,000. Vincent Astor (now deceased) was a member of 41 private clubs, To
give an idea of how much power just one of the many Astor men wield some of
the businesses Vincent was involved include:
director- American Express Company dir. Atlantic Fruit and Sugar Co.
dir. Chase Manhattan Bank (of the Rockefellers)
dir. City and Suburban Homes Co.
dir. Classical Cinematograph Corporation
dir. Cuban-Dominican Sugar Co. dir. Great Northern Railroad
dir. Ill. Central Railroad
dir, Inter. Mercantile Marine Co. dir. National Park Bank of NY
dir. NY County Trust Co.
dir. Weekly Publications Inc. dir. Western Union Telegraph trustee NY
Zoological Soc.
advisor to Bankers Trust of NY
member Amer. Museum of Nat. Hist. member Nat. Instit. of Soc. Sciences
(notice these last two like so many elite controlled organizations are
heavily involved in the spread of the evolution theory.)
Just like the Rothschilds, DuPonts, and Rockefellers, the Astors always set
one of their Astor males as the head of the entire family. This headship is
passed down as a birthright within the different branches of the family,
just as any King passes on his throne. On the corner of 33rd St. and 5th
Ave. (the site later began the site of the Empire State Building) the
original Waldorf-Astoria Hotel was built by William Waldorf, et. al. The
hotel opened in Mar. 1893. It is described as ‘the ultimate in snob appeal.’
Later two Astor cousins built the Astoria (another even taller elite Hotel)
in New York which opened in 1897. Of course, like many of the other elite
famIlies, the Astors have theIr Maine property to get away and relax. In
1894, John Jacob wrote a novel A Journey in Other Worlds where he describes
a society which operates on the idea of conserving energy. Strange how the
elite likes to promote conservation among us ‘cattle.’ In the late 1800’s,
the Illuminati began to reconfigure its outward face. The higher levels
started creating innocent sounding cover organizations to hide their
meetings behind. In 1901, the Astors contributed toward the creation of the
Pilgrim Society, which was the cover organization for Amer. & Brit. 6°
Princes of the Illuminati. I believe at least five Astors are now members of
the Pilgrim Society. The Pilgrims had recently included David Astor, John
Jacob Astor 8th, and William Waldorf Astor 3rd. And during the 1970s, Baron
Astor of Hever was the President of the London branch of the Pilgrims. This
implies that Astor of Hever was at least the next level up in the chain of
command. The Astors also have been very prominent in the Group’ which is
Britian’s equivalent to the Skull & Bones Soc. In Britain, the Astor, along
with about 20 other families dominate the Group, just as certain families
like the Whitneys in the U.S. help dominate the Order of Skull & Bones.
Again, as was earlier pointed out, the key to understanding Satanism is the
bloodlines. In 1910, the muscle and bone branches of the Illuminati
reconfigured themselves with the creation of the Round Table groups in 1910.
The Astors were the part of the financial backers behind the Round Table
groups along with Abe Bailey. Rhodes and Milner were key players is setting
up The Society of the Elect, a supersecret top circle of Illuminati. Rhodes
Trust in part helped by the Astor, helps finance the Rhodes Scholarship
system. Rhodes a high ranking Freemason wanted the Masonic clap-trap as part
of these various new groups, but Milner and Brett did away with the Masonic
rituals and costumes, etc.

In 1919, the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) was created.
And the Astors were the major financial backers of the RIIA which functions
as the 4° cover of the Illuminati. For those who are new to this, the RIIA
is the British equivalent to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) which
takes a major role in the policy making process in the U.S. Waldorf Astoria
was appointed to the RIIA. Just above the CFR/RIIA are round table groups
which were initially named by Cecil Rhodes as the “Association of Helpers”.
Cecil Rhodes set up the Rhodes Scholarships to recruit and bring top men
from several nations to Oxford to be initiated into the Illuminati and to
learn about how to bring in a One-World-Government, So the initial selection
into the Rhodes program--ist degree of the Illum.- is equivalent to the
initiation into the Skull & Bones. In the picture you see how the Cliveden
Astors were intimately connected to the Rhodes Scholars. Rhodes Scholars
frequently went to the Cliveden Estate. By looking at the genealogy chart
you can see how the family in London broke up into two powerful segments.
One part centered around the Cleveden Estate. Another group became
Barons-the Astors of Hever - or the Hever Astors for short. William Waldorf
Astor owned the Pall Pall Mall Gazette, the Observer, and the Pall Mall
Magazine. The London Times was largely controlled by the Astors, and since
1922 they have owned this major source of British news. The DuPonts and the
Rockefellers also have some major businesses where they too own blatant
large holdings. However, most of the wealth of the 13 Top families is hidden
so that the ties to who owns it are difficult to track. Hoyt Ammidon has
been a proxy for Vincent Astor and the other Astors. (See membership list of
Illuminati in this newsletter). The Astor family also used Owen Lattimore as
their proxy for opium trade, who in turn used Laura Spelman who was funded
by the Institute for Pacific Relations (IPR).
The lPR was the group that supervised the Illuminati’s decision to allow Red
China to share in the Opium trade. The puppet strings behind big world
events may not be
seen by the public, but if we trace the origins of several big events we see
the Astors helping pull strings. The IPR helped lay the groundwork for the
Pearl Harbor attack. The Astors also were behind the appeasement policy in
Europe which allowed Hitler to become a threat. The Astors were also
involved in the temperence movement against alcoholic drink which was begun
by the Women’s Christian Temperence Union. The temperence movement was an
elite created movement just like today we have big issues like Aparteid
which are made up by them to keep us busy. Joseph Kennedy and Onassis, two
other top 13 Illuminati families got rich off of
the temperence movement by bootlegging. So many people have exposed the
temperence movement (See Occult Theocracy for just one expose of Freemasonry
’s involvement) that it is not pertinent to cover it here. Today’s
equivalent of the temperence movement is the drug war. Col. Jack Astor, one
of the world’s most powerful men, was among those who went down with the
Titanic. To his honor, he didn’t have to sacrifice his life, but did. If he
had been a scoundrel he could have chased a woman and her children from some
lifeboat. Many sermons have been preached on the significance of the
Titanic, and I personally am beginning to feel that God laid it on the
hearts of so many of his ministers to understand that the Titanic was a
judgment upon the pride of the world. More specifically it was a warning to
the New World Order’s elite. Another Illuminati invention was Communism.
This has been so thoroughly documented I don’t know why I have to state it
here, except that there are still people who haven’t taken the time to study
it out. James II. Billington’s book Fire In the Minds of Men - a very
scholarly work, and Occult Theocracy are some good starting points to study
this. The Fabian Society was also connected to the Illuminati. For instance,
Illuminati prince Prof. George Edward Gordon Catlin, Pilgrim Soc. member was
a member of the Fabian Society’s executive committee. The Fabian logo is a
Wolf in Sheep’s clothing!!

Fabians like H.G. Wells who wrote so eloquently on the New World Order with
such books as The New World Order, A Modern Utopia, The Open Conspiracy Blue
Prints For A World Revolution was a wolf in sheep clothing. H.G. Well’s made
the New World Order something that sounded advantageous to everyone, a
Utopia of sorts. That is not what it will be. During the 1930’s, the Fabian
Socialists created the Political and Economic Planning group (PEP). Mason
Viscount Waldorf Astoria was a leader of PEP. A confidential program that
the PEP created and implemented through the British government was later
described in a book Principles of Economic Planning in 1935. The book doesn’
t explain why its cover has a ostentious Masonic square and compass
displayed on its cover. George Berhard Shaw, who was a communist and Fabian
Socialist was the best friend of Lady Nancy Astor, who became the first
woman Member or Parliment. These two spend vast amounts of time together,
much more than Nancy did with her husband Waldorf who she didn’t care to be
around. Waldorf was the Mason that was mentioned earlier who helped lead
PEP. After Nancy Astor was elected (or selected by the elite) to be the
first lady MP, one of the Russell ladys soon afterwards also became an MP.
Communism pretends it is the enemy of the rich capItalists, but both the
rich elite and the communist leaders are committed to wipe out Christianity,
to wipe out free trade with monopolies, and to set up an Illuminati
One-World-Government. Do you see they have similar goals? A picture is
included of Waldorf and Nancy Astor’s visit to Russia during the 1930s. The
Astors were not treated like enemies but like royalty. Can we see how the
elite controlled press have deceived us? Do not trust our
Illuminati-controlled elite to protect us from communism, they control
communism. Besides socialism, Nancy Astor was a big supporter of Christian
Science. Christian Science was a front for witchcraft from Its very
beginning. For more information on what Christian Science is about I suggest
people study Be Wise As Serpents, chapter 2.6 ‘The Healing Light”. Nancy
Astor wrote The Natural History of the Vampire and a book on the early
Mason/Communist Bakunin. She used Grenfell family papers. The Grenfell
family were close friends to the Cliveden Astors. David Astor, (The
Honorable) attended Bilderberger meetings in 1957 and 1966. Alpha Lodge is
the lodge in England that is traditionally for royalty. There are other
elite lodges too, where the those of the elite, can protect themselves from
rubbing shoulders with those of less social stature. These are the type of
masonic lodges that the Astors Join. In summary, an examination of the Astor
family reveals their close connections with the full spectrum of Illuminati
activities ranging from Freemasonry, the Illuminati itself, the Pilgrim
Society, the Round Tables, Communism, Fabian Socialism, CFR, RIIA. the
Bilderbergers, as well as the various politically (that is Illuminati)
tainted banks such as Chase Manhattan. Ava Alice Muriel Astor was an
occultist. She was born in 1902, was pretty but also a very serious woman.
She was a very strong willed person that was able to dominate a person in
her presence unless they were also strong willed. She was into Egyptian
magic and believed she was the reincarnation of an Egyptian princess and a
disciple of Ikhnaton. Alice Astor may have been one of the first people to
enter King Tut’s tomb, where she got herself a necklace. Aldous Huxley wrote
Brave New World as a picture of things that were to come --most people think
as a expose, but it was really more as a plan or blueprint Aldous Huxley and
Alice did a great deal of occult things together. Their financial power is
unchecked. Myers and others have noted the Astors are above the law. The Top
13 families don’t obey the law--they are the law. The Astors may have
Illuminati Kings and Princes in their ranks, they may have dozens of
billions of assets, yet it will all be nothing when they face their Creator
at judgment.

Followup on the Astors

One of the items that I felt I should have given the readers back in the
1/1/93 issue was the Masonic background of John Jacob Astor (1763-1848). For
the record here is his masonic involvement:

Master of the Holland Lodge No.8, of N.Y.C.-1788
Grand Treasurer of the Grand Lodge of New York-1796-1801
Junior Grand Warden on two occasions-1796 & 1801
Secretary of the comamandery (then called encampments).

For a busy man, he kept himself busy In his Masonic work.


Thirteen families or bloodlines are at the top, and five of these families
are the inside core of these thirteen. Prior to Be Wise As Serpents, the
existence of thirteen top families was not known by very many people. The
existence of the 13 families had come out in Berry Smith’s book Final Notice
in the 1980s, but the names were still unknown. Berry Smith of Australia
wrote in his book Final Notice p. 9, “There are 13 families or groups
heading up the World Government plan. These families are portrayed as the 13
layers of blocks found on the strange seal on the reverse side of the U.S.
$1 bill.” In a little read article, one SRA victim recently wrote that
Satanism was controlled by a few families. Recently, one of the Du Ponts was
on a television show because the DuPonts were trying to kidnap him because
they didn’t like his support for the book Dope. Inc. I was able to get a
copy of the book, and was overjoyed to find such an excellent book. My
sources have been telling me that the top Illuminati families were behind
the drug trade. Yes, Satan’s top followers are also the kingpins in
destroying humanity for profit through drug trafilcing. The following
families (besides others) or individuals from these families are mentioned
in Dope Inc. as involved in some aspect of the drug trade: the Astors,
Bundys, DuPonts, Freemans, Kennedy’s, Li’s, Rockefellers, Rothschilds, and
Russells. It is no coincidence that nine of the Top 13 families would get
there names in a book which revealed the big names behind the world’s
illegal narcotics trade. It should be mentioned that some other prominent
Illuminati families also play key roles in the drug trade such as the
Bronfmans, Cabots, Shaws, Bacons, Perkins, Morgan, Forbes, Cisneros and
Oppenheimers. Where have we seen such names before? There are names in Dope
Inc. that people would do well to know the danger of such as Louis Mortimer
Bloomfield, Robert Vesco, Francois Genoud of Switzerland, Ivan Slavkov of
Bulgaria, the Duke of Kent - Master of the Grand Mother Lodge of the
Scottish Rite, and Jardine Matheson to mention a few. All our favorite
secret fraternal groups appear in Dope, Inc. too. For instance, the Triads,
P2 Masonry, regular Freemasonry, the CIA, the Order of St. John, and the
Jesuits. The Universal Christian Gnostic Church’s which practices black
magic has a whole chapter showing its connection to the drug trade. Britain’
s assassination bureau Permindex which has been mentioned previously in this
newsletter also gets a chapter in the book. In the Be Wise As Serpents book,
I examine in detail only the Rothschilds and the Russells. I did not present
much to back up my statements about the 13 families. Further, One of the
unthinkable items that most people do not want to consider is that their
leaders who they have idolized may be utterly corrupt. There was nothing to
do but sit down and give the nitty-gritty details if the threat from the
Illuminati was to be properly understood. The facts would speak for
themselves. The ideal solution for both writer and reader was for me to
write up my research and for you to read it as a series of articles. There
is only so much a person can assimilate at once, and these articles give
lots of details. In January of this year I began a series of articles on the
top 13  families - families which the top experts said nobody knew about. I
did this with the hope of stimulating others to notice these families, and
to alert a wider sector of the Body of Christ. The young colleague David J.
Smith, who wrote part of the Jan. 1 article on the Illuminati, was led to
carry out further research in addition to what the Jan. 1 article had. Most
of this article’s information on the Astors then is a result of David’s

Most of the material put out on the Astors shows the unmistakable mark of
distortion by writers and historians giving information in line with what
the Astors wanted the public to get. Books on the Astors contain both
believable and unbelievable material, fact and fiction, Some of the real
facts may remain obscured forever, but that has not stopped us from getting
the most accurate picture we could reconstruct. The Astors do not make the
task of investigating them easy. They have been very secret and very
deceptive since they arrived In this nation. John Jacob Astor, the first
prominent Astor was a notorious liar, “he was known on occasion to invent
romantic tales for the edification of people who annoyed hIm with  questions
...... Men who knew him best were, therefore, neither ready to discredit
completely all legends about his exploits nor to repeat them as gospel. The
truth, they suspected, lay somewhere between the two extremes.” (Terrell,
John Upton. Furs by Astor., p. 102.) John Jacob’s son insured that his
father’s lies would go unchallenged by incinerating all of his personal
records, business records and other papers.

The Astors have come up with various origins for themselves and those for or
against the family have added more ideas. One strong possibility is that the
Astors are descendants of the Astorga family found in Southern Italy before
the 1600s. The most likely meaning of the name is that both Astorga and
Astor are variations meaning “Astarte” who is the mother of the occult. Her
name is also Semiramis. In Babylon the trinity was Nimrod (the sun),
Semiramis (the moon), and Tammuz (the morning star). In Egypt, these gods
were called Osiris, Isis, and Horus. The pictures and statues Isis and Horns
were renamed by the Roman Catholic church as the Virgin Mary and the

The family may have moved from Savoy to Walldorf, Germany. Although it is
not a certainty, the best explanation from the available clues indicates
that Walldorf’s coven had some important personages in the
witchcraft/satanic system and that Johann Astor’s family had power. At that
time in Europe, the Astor family had no chance to turn their occult power
into success. The power and class structure In Europe was rigid and
gridlocked. The boundaries between peasant and aristocracy were solidly in
place. So the family looked to the New World to transmute their position in
the Satanic hierarchy into financial wealth and power. Johann Astor In
Walldorf was only a butcher. His best son John Jacob (1763-1848) was
selected to establIsh the House of Astor in America.

At age 16, John Jacob Astor quit helping the family butcher business, went
to England and then later to America. Looking at the details of things, and
piecing the truth together it appears that his Satanic authority was already
in place, because he was able to travel to England, and as a german-speaking
peasant converse face to face with the Backhouse family in England. Of
course the biographers make it sound like John Jacob Astor left Germany for
himself, rather than his family. Michael Astor gives a glimpse of John Jacob
’s mission, “He concentrated almost entirely on building a fortune, on
escaping the poverty of his childhood and
establishing a secure financial position for his family in America.” (Astor,
Michael. Tribal Feeling p. 11)

The process of 400 years looks like this. Various Satanic families moved
into the Southwest German area in the late Medieval time period. Witchcraft
associated with Diana was practiced In Southwest Germany, and this began to
alarm various elements of the Roman Catholic church. The Astor family
provides leadership in the covens in the Heidelberg area. Witchcraft spread
virtually all over Southwest Germany. An examination of the old records from
about 1500 to 1650 show that witchcraft was being practiced throughout the
area. (I have the names of over 120 towns were it was practiced in SW
Germany, the list derived from old German records.) The Astors did not have
the position, wealth, and power that accorded their position in the late
1700s of occult leadership. In Germany, England and France there was no way
to climb the social ladder. However, the New World presented opportunities.
The Astors sent two sons to prepare the way for John Jacob, one to England,
one to America, and then sent John Jacob their most promising brightest son
to the New World. While in America the Astor family helped the Satanic elite
headquartered in England to maintain its control over America. Having come
from Germany, and also due to Satanism being secret, John Jacob Astor’s help
given to pro-British-elite moves were more difficult to suspect. After
establishing themselves as aristocrats in America, the tribe of Astors moved
to England, where because of their high social position in America, no one
questioned the Queen bestowing titles of nobility on them. All along the
process, people with Illuminati connections opened doors for the Astors. At
this point, it needs to be pointed out that there were ties between the
following groups: English royalty, English Satanism, English Freemasonry,
and German witchcraft, and the Italian Black nobility. (Taking the liberty I
have as author of this article, I am going to digress to give some examples
of these connections. Although on the surface this doesn’t directly pertain
to the Astors, it does.) When one paints in the bigger panorama of what was
happening in the occult world, and then one sees a blazing star streak
across that panorama, then the real history of that blazing star is given by
tracking its voyage through that panorama. However, the history books have
intentionally hidden the significance of so many of the players and groups
that lay along the track of that blazing streak.


Order of the Knights of the Helmet--This was an illuminated secret society
with Sir Francis Bacon at its head. In order to hide its Masonic rituals,
Sir Francis Bacon wrote a play entitled “The Order of the Helmet.” This was
performed in 3 Jan. 1594, and again for twelve days in December 1594. In
Dec. 1594, brItIsh Aristocrats who had been demonically illuminated, met and
put on a “play.” Calling their initiation ceremony a play was a great cover.
Sir Francis Bacon was made king and “prince of purple.” Various men were
invested with the Collar of Knighthood of the Helmet, and took vows, And a
“Series of Charges by six High Councilors” was given in a manner that is
very similar to what the satanic S.R.I.A. does now. The reader may ask what
does this have to do with the Astors? This is simply a few brief look at the
background of what was happening in the occult in Europe. The Queen of
England sent Sir Francis Bacon as a young man in his twenties to the
continent of Europe. Sir Francis Bacon toured France in places such as
Louvre, St. Cloud, Blois, Paris, and Poictiers, He also travelled to
Germany, Italy and Spain. He visited the various royal courts, such as the
court of Marguerite de Valois. Marguerite was married to King Henry of
Navarre. Her mother was the evil Catherine de Medicis. Sir Francis Bacon
also met with many secret societies. At Marguerite’s court he spent time
with “The Pleiade” fraternity, which was a group of 7 intellectuals.
According to the best biographer of Sir Francis Bacon, who was Alf red Dodd
(Alfred spent his entire life studying SIr Francis Bacon), Sir Francis Bacon
was initiated into a large number of secret occult societies when he was on
the continent of Europe. He learned kabbalistic magic, Egyptian mysticism,
Arabian mysticism, and the customs of the German Steinmetzin. (Dodd, Alfred.
Francis Bacon’s Life-Story. London: Rider & Co., 1988, p.10.4.) This
information has been provided to give some feel for how the occult in Europe
was in contact with its various parts, and that its tentacles included many
of the royal families.

Hell Fire Club -- This was a secret Satanic cult which was associated wIth
early Freemasonry. When the connections became known between the Satanists
of the Hell Fire Club and the elite of Freemasonry, Freemasonry and the
elite made some radical moves. First, Freemasonry publicly proclaimed that
it had nothing to do with the Hell Fire Club. rhen the Hell Fire Club was
publicly disbanded by the government (acting on orders from people that
tied-in with the club). Later, quietly the club was reconstituted. Phillip,
1 at Duke of Wharton (1698-1731) who was the second person of nobility to be
Grand Master of England’s Freemasons (G.M. of the Grand
Lodge 6/1722-11/25/1723) was president of the Hell Fire Club. He was an M.P,
in the House of Lords. In 1726, he left England and was a basically brought
into ill-repute by the Masons, who distanced themselves from him. George
Lee, Earl of Lichfield was also another prominent Mason who was a member of
the Hell Fire Club. Benjamin Franklin, who was the head of the American
Freemasons in various capacities, and also the head of the Rosicrucians and
a number of other secret occult groups was also a member of the Hell Fire
Club. Benjamin Franklin’s satanism was not mentioned in my Be Wise As
Serpents book, but he was an important Satanist who was part of the Order of
the Quest--that is the group which has been entrusted with the plans for
bringing in the New World Order of Satan. Remember that John Jacob Aster was
very involved with Freemasonry, as were a number of his intimate friends
such as N.Y. Governor DeWitt Clinton and General John A. Armstrong. In
regards to the Hell Fire Club, the Earl of Sandwich, Benjamin Franklin and
Sir Francis Dashwood were leaders in the Hell Fire Club and were also
Post-Master Generals of the British Postal Service, All were Freemasons too.
Their positions as Post-Master Generals allowed them total access to the
mail, and allowed them to spy on the communications of the 18th century. The
man who became Post-Master General after Dashwood, who moved on to be a M.P,
in the Br. Parliament, was the Mason John Wilkes. John Wilkes took over in
1766 (in 1774 was Lord Mayor of London). Wilkes then brought one of the
original Hell Fire Club members, a friend of his Willis Hill to help with
the Postal Service. The next Post-Master general was the totally corrupt man
the Earl of Sandwich, who served until 1771. Benjamin Franklin spent the
summers of 1772, 1773, and 1774 at Dashwood’s estate in West Wycombe. The
caves under Dashwood’s estate at West Wycombe were used for satanic sexual
rituals, which were participated in by Benjamin Franklin.

Ordo Saturnus--This is an old secret satanic German order. In the last few
newsletters, I have been educating people on the meaning of Saturn. It means
Satan. This previous information helps us understand John Jacob Astor IV
when he writes in his book A Journey in Other Worlds, “The souls of the
righteous departed were found on Saturn, where, to a background of weird
music, pulsating hearts, luminous brains and centers of spiritual activity
quiver with motion.” (A side comment: John Jacob Astor IV had a reputation
for his insatiable sexual lust to paw women.) One of the people we have to
investigate in relation to the Ordo Saturnus is Valentine Jeune, who was
John Jacob Astor’s mentor in Walldorf, Germany. Jeune may well have belonged
to an organization such as Ordo Saturnus.

John Jacob Astor arrived in England and may well have been introduced In
England to British Intelligence by his brother George. At any rate, he got
involved in British intelligence which has always been closely linked to
Freemasonry and the elite. He spent time socially with the Backhouse family
which an aristocratic family. How do you suppose such a supposedly destitute
young man could be accepted so easily into the Backhouse social scene? This
is not explained by modern biographers.
After four years, his brother George then sent him to America to represent
George’s music company. His brother Henry met him when he arrived in 1784 at
age 20 and introduced him to the occult world in New York City. Thomas
Backhouse & Co. was a leading house in the lucrative fur trade. John Jacob
Astor set out to bring the fur trade under his own control. There is a tact
that must be faced. the elite’s Committee of 300, a secret legislative group
of the Illuminati, decided that John Jacob Astor could expand into the fur
trade and into the opium narcotics trade. Dope, Inc. shows that the Astor
famIly was the first American family to get into the Opium trade, and that
their opIum trade had was a special privilege that most other American
businesses did not even try to compete with. Why? Dope, Inc. doesn’t say
this but I know that it is because the Committee of 300 decides such things,
not free enterprise. American furs yielded 1000% profit in those days. The
privilege of fur trading was a pot of gold so to speak that the Committee of
300 gave Astor, and it could only have happened because the Astor family in
Walldorf was already part of a principal satanic bloodline. (The Illuminati
members of the Astor family today use their influence to help those of the
Illuminati in their dope trade.) William Backhouse the American
representative of the London Backhouse family and John Jacob’s brother Henry
were two of John Jacob initial contacts in the New World. Soon John Jacob
had met all types of people involved in New York’s occult world. John Jacob
married Sarah Todd. John Jacob’s step-mother Christina Barbara is described
as “the perfect, cruel fairy tale stepmother.” John Jacob ‘raised the
principle of self-interest to the level of a philosophy and ..... claimed
for himself a natural superiority over his less able and less powerful
fellow men, a sort of God-given right to exploit the world and its
inhabitants for his personal gain, This was not mere cynicism, but a genuine
belief that in some way [he was] among the chosen people for whose
convenience and advancement lIfe was ordered ..... Such people ... make
history, but they also pervert it in human terms because their world and the
codes that govern it have nothing to do with morality.’ (Sinclair, David.
Dynasty The Astors and Their Times. p. 59) ‘Astor took Freemasonry
seriously... [Gov. DeWitt] Clinton rose unusually fast in the degrees, but
the German Immigrant [John Jacob] who talked at times as if he had marbles
in his mouth was not far behind him. Astor eventually caught up to
Clinton...’ (Terrell. Furs by Astor, p. 84).
DeWItt Clinton’s uncle George Clinton, who served as Jefferson’s
Vice-President was also a member of their Holland Lodge No. 8. Archibald
Russell of the Russell family, as well as two members of the elite
Livingstone family were members of this lodge too at the time. The
Livingstone family were participating in the Committee of 300 at that time.
One of my Masonic reference books states that business at the Holland Lodge
No, 8 was conducted in German. If so, why were all these other men involved
with it who apparently had English as their mother tongue? In the 1/1/93
issue, Astor’s dirty real estate deals and his activity as a drug king-pin
were discussed.
However, Astor’s connivance to create a nation on the west coast wasn’t.
Thomas Jefferson, who I have now come to realize was a part of the
Illuminati, was in on the plot. Jefferson said that he “hoped for the
establishment of an independent nation on the Pacific Coast, bound to the
United States by ties of blood, language, and friendship.” The Northwest was
to become a sovereign nation under Astor’s rule. The plan failed miserably
due to a variety of reasons. Another item that was missed in the earlier
article was how John Jacob Astor profited by using his own courier system
and powerful friends to profit from the War of 1812. Astor knew the War of
1812 was coming and he set himself up to profit from it in several ways.
(His Masonic brother and friend John A.. Armstrong 1758-1843 helped the
British war effort as the American Secretary of War. A descendent of John’s
later married into the Astors.) Astor himself helped the British when he
could profit by it. The two illuminati Jefferson and Gallatin gave Astor
special sailing privileges which netted him much profit. When war was
declared against Great Britain, Astor sent agents to the British forts in
Canada to inform them. This gave the British advance knowledge of the war,
before the Americans troops knew. This allowed the British to seize northern
American forts and to insure that the British had control of the region’s
fur trade. This was essential for Astor to get control of the fur market,
because then when the British furs were embargoed he had less competition.
He obtained special permission from the President to import all furs owned
by him and held in Canada before the war. He used thIs permission illegally
to trap new furs. When the war ended. Astor was able to heat everyone else
to Europe with his furs and make a killing. Astor cleared his name of shame,
by sending Washington, D.C. information about a mutiny at a British fort
which allowed the U.S. army to take advantage of the enemy’s weak condition
to capture the area. John Jacob Astor traded in guns, and his firearms were
used in at least one-Latin American revolution. Bear in mind Latin-American
revolutions have all been planned in Masonic Lodges. When employees of John
Jacob Astor would trap for or trade furs with the Astor fur houses, they
would he paid with letters of credit. Then Astor agents would he sent out to
ambush and kill them, so that the Astor Fur Company could save money. The
deaths were blamed on Indians. Zachery Taylor stated, “Take the American Fur
Company in the aggregate, and they are the greatest scoundrels the world
ever knew.” (O’Connor, Harvey. The Astors p.44)

This was the son of John Jacob Astor. He was infamous for his hank treatment
of thousands of people who rented from him in New York. There were repealed
riots by tenants who were opposed by the harsh filthy living conditions in
the buildings Astor owned, but their complaints were consistently ignored by
Astor and their riots suppressed by the police. Only half of the children of
his tenants lived to age 20. The Astors were deeply involved with the
Tammany organization. William B. supported the corrupt administration of the
infamous New York mayor, Fernando Wood. The government at that time was a
pack of corrupt men. When Wood was exposed, Astors involvement was
overlooked. This is another example of Astor power.

He was the son of William Backhouse Astor. He was just as haughty, just as
cruel, and just as corrupt as his father and grandfather had been. He
created “sweat shops” for the poor masses living in his New York tenements.
He also supported corrupt politicians such as the criminal “Boss” Tweed who
ran NYC. The Tweed Ring stole millions of dollars from the city of New York.
Before they finally got caught and sent to prison Mayor Tweed and gang cost
the city $200 million. Again John Jacob Astor III’s power allowed his
involvement to be basically overlooked by the press, while Tweed went to
prison for life.

Most of the Astors took off for England, but one branch of the Astors that
is clearly involved in Satanism and the occult is the Chanler family.
The Chanler family have Astor blood via “Madie” Astor Ward. The Chanler’s
parents died at an early age, and the Rokeby Estate in NY was given by the
Astors so that a cousin Mary Marshall could raise the Chanler children. The
Chanler family is one branch that clearly shows all the earmarks of the
SatanIc hierarchy. The behavior of Robert Chanler, Elizabeth Chanler and
Armstrong Chanler have ail the classic earmarks of having MPD, and having
suffered SRA. The Rokeby mansion that the Chanler family lived in was a
haunted house of the first rate. Fairies, ghosts, signs and potents, and all
type of occult activity takes place at this mansion, When top rx-Illuminati
members who have managed to escape Satanism describe their home life, they
mention that occult phenomena was a natural part of home life. This
certainly is what life has been lIke at the Chanler Rokeby mansion. The
Chaniers are not well known publicly but have been part of the social scene
of the elite. Theodore Roosevelt and Senator Henry Cabot Lodge (of the elite
Cabot family) were good friends of the Chanlers. The Chanlers created the
town Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. (At some point I hope to do an expose
on the resort area in that general area that is a “meat market” for the
Illuminati. Families like the Bill Clinton’s go down there every year for
vacation to mingle with other middle management families that the Illuminati
use as lackeys. Illuminati “scouts” watch and choose who they want to use
for political office, etc.) A Who’s Who of the Astor orphans--the Chanier
family who are of interest to our study of the Illuminati will now be given.

John Armstrong Chanler-married mystic novelist and morphine addict Amelie
Rives. “Once wandering in the twilight she asked wistfully, “Do you think If
I drank a whole cupful of warm, bubbly blood, I would see a real  fairy” ...
Then there had been the period during which she suffered anguish over the
thought that Satan
was banished from Paradise forever; she prayed with tears that ultimately he
might be pardoned and readmitted to celestial bliss.” (Thomas, Lately. The
Astor Orphans: A Pride of Lions p. 76.) John carried on spiritual
experiments in what he termed “esoteric buddhism”. Due to his obsession with
this practice and a business fight with his brothers they put him in an
insane asylum. He finally did get released. One has to wonder what the whole
story was behind the incarceration. HIs esoteric buddhism or “x-faculty” was
a trance state where a spirit spoke or did automatic writing through him.
His eye color would change when this spirit worked through him.

Margaret Livingston Chanler retained the rights to Rokeby. She married into
the Aldrich family, which is another Illuminati family. The Aidriches now
own Rokeby.

William Chanler was a friend of Tom Foley who was the Tammany district
leader of the Irish-Italian district east of city hall. Another friend was
Jack Follansbee. Jack Follansbee’s cousin was WillIam Randolf Hearst, an
Illuminatus of the 6° who got Billy Graham’s ministry going by financing the
first several years. The Hearst family is in the Illuminati. One of the
Rothschild descendants Don Hearst Bauer, has changed his name to Don Hearst.

Winthrop Chanler’s wife, Amelie Rive, her father William Cabell Rives
studied law under Thomas Jefferson.

The Roosevelt family has been connected to the Delano family which Is a
Black Venetian Noble family that goes back for many centuries. The lives of
these families also intertwine with the Astors. Examples of the interweaving
· Franklin Hughes Delano--heir to a massive whale oil fortune. He married
Lavia Astor, daughter of the original William Buckhouse Astor.
· James Roosevelt Roosevelt-married Helen Astor, daughter of William
Backhouse, Jr.
· James Roosevelt--a Freemason, he married the sister of Vincent Astor’s


In our revisit to the Astors, we have examined in more detail the early life
of John Jacob Astor and his connections to Satanism. We have touched on his
son and grandson who led the Astor famIly after John Jacob dIed. We have
seen more of their meanness and connections to corruption. We examined bow
Satanism and the occult had a hold on England even back when John Jacob
Astor came to the New World. Three important occult organizations of the
17th & 18th century were introduced. We have looked at the Chanler family, a
branch of the Astor family which is part of Satanism. We also looked at how
the Roosevelts and Delano families have been associated with the Astors.
