Luciferian Rite for the 33rd Degree

Throughout a period of about fifty years Pike developed and then gradually
introduced his Luciferian Rite to a select few within the 33rd Degree Supreme
Council at Charleston. He also converted the Masonic hierarchy in London,
Berlin, and Rome. During the latter part of that development, French atheists
began to attack spiritism and symbolism within French Lodges, finally
declaring in 1877 that there was no god but humanity. Grand Orient Freemason
Karl Marx was one of the main movers behind the atheistic stand taken by the
French Lodges. English Freemasonry, which demands a belief in deity,
immediately broke fellowship with the French Grand Orient.(27)

Albert Pike, Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry at the time, attempted
to mend the English and French di   …vision by writing a letter to the
hierarchy declaring that Lucifer was the god of Freemasonry. This letter was
read on July 14, 1889, at the annual congress of the existing twenty-three
[23] Grand Lodge Supreme Councils of the world gathered at Paris, France. The
letter was recorded by A.C. De La Rive in La Femme et l'Enfant dans la Franc-
Maconnerie Universelle. The Freemason, an English Masonic periodical, noted
the reading of the letter in its January 19, 1935 issue. Count de Poncins
quotes portions of the letter in Freemasonry and the Vatican. The most
comprehensive quote, however, comes to us from Edith Miller in Occult
Theocrasy. Here is what Albert Pike wrote to that Masonic Congress, as quoted
by Miller:

That which we must say to the crowd is -- We worship a God, but it is the God
that one adores without superstition.

To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, [of the 33rd degre   se] 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.
If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay [The God of the Bible] whose deeds prove
his cruelty, perfidy, and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science,
would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him?

Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. For the eternal law
is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white
without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being
necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the
statue, and the brake to the locomotive.
In analogical and universal dynamics one can only lean on that which will
resist. Thus the universe is balan   [ced by two forces which maintain its
equilibrium: the force of attraction and that of repulsion. These two forces
exist in physics, philosophy and religion. And the scientific reality of the
divine dualism is demonstrated by the phenomena of polarity and by the
universal law of sympathies and antipathies. That is why the intelligent
disciples of Zoroaster, as well as, after them, the Gnostics, the Manicheans
and the Templars have admitted, as the only logical metaphysical conception,
the system of the divine principles fighting eternally, and one cannot believe
the one inferior in power to the other.

Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophic
religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of
Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of
Darkness and Evil.(2   a8)
pps 373-380

 . . ., he refused to accept that the conflict was within Satan himself.(43)
Therefore, Pike wrote that Satan was not a person, but the negation of God, a
force that could be used for good or evil. Accordingly Pike cast Satan as
Lucifer, who he thought was light, the god of good, struggling with Adonay,
the god of evil.

The Luciferian Doctrine, therefore, must be distinguished from Satanism.
Luciferianism is the belief that Lucifer is totally good, that he never fell.
Only because of his benevolence to man, claims the Luciferian mystics, was
Lucifer forced out of heaven by a jealous god, who did not want man to advance
in knowledge. - Pike calls this jealous god, Adonay, the God of the Bible.(44)

One of Pike's first Luciferian converts was 33rd degree Freemason Giuseppe
Mazzini (1805-1872), leader, as we have seen, of the Italian R   Bevolution
and founder of the Mafia. Originally Mazzini was an ardent atheist. Later in
life -- almost three decades prior to Albert Pike's 1889 speech in Paris --
Mazzini accepted Pike's Luciferian doctrine. Miller comments on Mazzini's

When Pike sent him a copy of his Luciferian rituals, Mazzini was full of an
enthusiastic praise for his colleague's work which he expressed in his
articles in La Roma del Popolo. The public however failed to understand the
sentiment that inspired him to proclaim the existence of a divinity and
denounce materialism and atheism. One was puzzled to find this man a

Palladianism: The Super Luciferian Rite

Thirty-third degree English Mason, Lord Palmerston, was also converted to
Pike's Luciferian doctrine. From time to time Mazzini controlled the Italian
revolution fr   2om London, soliciting the assistance of Palmerston, who
helped finance Mazzini through British military intelligence.(46) Both men
agreed with Pike to unite the hierarchies of French, American, and English
Freemasonry in a Super Luciferian Rite. The Rite would be called the New and
Reformed Palladian Rite, originally founded in Paris in 1737. One of the
meanings that Webster's Dictionary gives palladian is safeguard. As the
definition suggests, Pike's Palladian Rite was to "safeguard" the ancient
doctrine of mystery religions that proclaimed Lucifer god.(47)
It is near impossible to discover who are the members of the Palladian Rite
today. It takes from thirty to fifty years for such information to emerge. The
Reformed Palladian Rite, however, was comprised of Pike, Palmerston, Bismarck,
Mazzini, Lemmi (a c   Confidant of Mazzini), and other select few.(48)
The purpose of the Palladian Rite was not only to combine the two opposing
bodies of Freemasonry in the hierarchy of the Supreme Council, but to unite
all secret societies under the religion of Lucifer -- including non-Masonic
orders. Miller confirms this in Occult Theocrasy

A 33rd [degree Mason] would be well received everywhere, in any country, in
any rite the existence of which is acknowledged. Thus it was particularly the
initiates of the thirty-third degree Scottish Rites, who, owing to their
extensive international ramifications, were privileged to recruit adepts for
Palladism...the lowliest of its initiates being brothers long tested in
ordinary masonry [sic].(49)

The existence of this rite would be kept strictly secret and no mention of it
would ever be made in the a   /ssemblies of the lodges and Inner Shrines of
other rites. Albert Pike was given dogmatic authority and the title of
Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry with headquarters at Charleston,
South Carolina. Mazzini, operating from Rome, held the executive authority
with the title of Sovereign Chief of Political Action. Miller reports:

The two secret chiefs, Pike and Mazzini, finally completed the organization of
high masonry [sic] establishing four Grand Central Directories for the world,
functioning thenceforth to gather information for the benefit of their
political policy and dogmatic propaganda.(50)

These four Sovereign Administrative Directories became known as Propaganda
Lodges (P-1). During the 1860s they were presided over by the four most
powerful 33rd degree Masons in the world at that time:   0 Berlin was directed
by Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898); London by Palmerston; Washington by Pike
(after his pardon); and Rome by Mazzini. In imitation of the original P-1
lodges, in 1968 the Italian Propaganda Due (P-2) Masonic Lodge was certified
by Italian Grand Orient Masonry. Unlike the original P- 1 Lodges, which were
controlled by the Palladian at Washington, D.C., P-2 fell under the control of
English Masonry.(51)
Membership in Mazzini's four Sovereign Administrative Directories -- the P-1
Lodges -- came strictly from the Supreme Council. To keep exposure of secrets
to a minimum, membership was on an ingeniously contrived system of three month
rotation. Given only 120 days notice of their appointments in order for them
to plan what would appear in our day as politicians going on "fact finding
trips,   G" these high Masons were in truth going on business trips for their
particular Masonic Directories. Miller explains the relationship of the
Palladian Rite to the four P-1 lodges, and to the 33rd degree Supreme Council:

The Palladian Rite has no share in the functioning of the [P-1] Sovereign
Administrative Directory. This should again prove that Palladism is superposed
to all the other rites. It is the Luciferian religion and only need concern
itself with the triangles which have a separate budget. Being the real hidden
power, known only to the perfect initiates, it need not unveil itself even to
this permanent committee which constitutes the highest expression of the
administrative power of the great international association.(52)

Here Miller reveals that there are three secret societies superimposed on the
29-degree Scottis   2h Rite and the three-degree Blue Lodge. The first, is the
general body of the 33rd degree Supreme Council. Above that the four P- 1
lodges are superimposed on the Supreme Council. And finally, the Luciferian
Palladian is superimposed over all.
To better understand what position the Luciferian Palladian Rite held in
Freemasonry, look at the Illuminati pyramid on the back of the American one
dollar bill. The All-Seeing Eye of Lucifer in the center of the Capstone
represents the Palladian, while the Capstone itself is the 33rd degree Supreme
Council. Therefore, not all within the 33rd degree Supreme Council are
Luciferian -- only the Palladian "hidden power." The original power brokers in
the Palladian were Pike, Palmerston, Bismarck and Mazzini. In a future chapter
we will reveal the modern Luciferians.
The r   5elationship of the Palladian to the Supreme Council is strikingly
similar to that of Weishaupt and the Illuminati. In the latter, the All-Seeing
Eye was Weishaupt and the Capstone was the Illuminati. Apparently (or so it
has appeared to conspiracy researchers), the Palladian Rite replaced the
Illuminati, suggesting to investigators that Weishaupt appointed Mazzini, who
continued the conspiracy under the new name.
True, the conspiracy dropped the Illuminati title. The new conspiracy,
however, was not a continuation of the old. The Palladian was comprised of
Templar Scottish Rite Masons, whereas the Illuminati was a Sionist-Rosicrucian
organization. However, a more plausible explanation of the shift in the
conspiracy has already been suggested -- the Templars seized control of Sion's
Illuminati conspiracy shortl   Jy before the French Revolution. Templar
control was maintained by Pike and Mazzini.
Satan cares little which conspiracy is in power. Both are under his command.
Division is his method and madness. Pitting one order against the other is his
method of control. If one rebels, or becomes weakened, he reinforces the
other. As we have seen, after the French Revolution, the Templar Order was
active and flourishing once again. Sion's Illuminati had been suppressed.
When the conspiracy changed hands the leadership was up for grabs. After the
Revolution Napoleon Bonaparte had his chance, but he was too visible. Mazzini
was the next opportunist, some say appointed by Weishaupt. Yet, there is no
real evidence to support this claim. Obviously, Satan dangled the carrot in
front of Mazzini and he followed it to his death.
Mazzini was one of the    9three most powerful Masons in Europe. When he was
near death, he designated 33rd degree Adriano Lemmi his successor. Lemmi,
under Mazzini's direction since 1851 had played an important role as a
political assassin during the Italian Revolution. When Mazzini died on March
11, 1872, Albert Pike acceded to Mazzini's wish that Lemmi be his
successor.(53) Lemmi immediately began to strengthen the Mafia, organizing it
into the universal crime network we see today. So significant was the
information about Lemmi and his Masonic-Mafla empire that Miller devoted 43
pages of her book to organized crime.(54)
Lemmi's rapid success was due to the fact that the Mafia controlled the heroin
trade for English Freemasonry. Great Britain concluded her Opium Wars with
China in 1860. With Hong Kong as a prize, the Masonic-owned British     East
India Company. which had previously transported opium to the West, dissolved
in 1873. Its wealthy stockholders -- all English Masons -- went into off-
shore, that is unregulated, banking to launder the Mafia's drug money.(55)
During this time Albert Pike was in constant contact with the Mafia, assisting
in its entry into the United States through New Orleans.(56)

Luciferianism: The Universal Doctrine of Freemasonry

Among the many converts to Luciferianism was Gallatin Mackey, a confidant of
Albert Pike. It was Mackey who then nominated Pike for the post of Grand
Master of the Supreme Council of Charleston. His candidacy unopposed, Pike was
duly elected on January 6. 1859. Gallatin Mackey is widely read in
Freemasonry. His books consist of The Lexicon of Freemasonry T    he History
of Freemasonry in South Carolina, The Manual of the Lodge, The Masonic
Ritualist, The Symbolism of Freemasonry, and The Encyclopedia of Freemasonry,
the authorship of which is generally now attributed to Albert George
Many other 33rd degree Masons then and later acknowledged Lucifer as god,
including a 20th century figure, Albert Lantoine. De Poncins describes him as

a historian and a thinker of great merit. He was a sincere Freemason, of
charming personal character, and he kept apart from all contact with politics.
He concealed nothing, and openly declared that he was an atheist. He was
severely critical of certain aspects of the Catholic Church but he did not
spare Masonry either. He had obviously lost the faith he originally held in
democracy and rat   Jionalism.(58)

Lantoine wrote a pamphlet in 1937 entitled Lettre au Souverain Pontife. It was
an open epistle to the Pope to declare a truce between the Catholic Church and
Freemasonry. De Poncins quotes an excerpt which illustrates Lantoine's
Luciferian belief that the universe is divided into a necessary duality of
good and evil:

...should we remain at odds with one another?
Perhaps we should...in the very depths of our souls. For your God cannot
pardon the Rebellious Angel, and that Angel will never submit or renounce his
But should we remain enemies?
There is a higher sphere where knowledge and Faith, though they cannot meet,
can at least tolerate one another. To those seeking the one, to those who
possess the other, they give the same delights and the same anguish. There is
as much purity and grandeur    qin the words of the philosophers as in the
Word of the Redeemer.
So much the better, I say. Possessing critical and inquisitive minds, we are
the servants of Satan. You, the guardians of truth, are the servants of God.
These two complement one another. Each needs the other.(59)

Lantoine here articulates the so-called "scientifically" required dualism of
Albert Pike that "Each needs the other." During a conversation with Lantoine,
de Poncins questioned him whether Masons were the "servants of Satan."
Lantoine replied, "I was
wrong, I didn't use quite the correct term. I should have said servants of

Luciferian Masonary Today

Earlier, we met 33rd degree Mason Oswald Wirth, who was affiliated with the
French Grand Lodge. He, too, was a Luciferian. In his statement below, he
characterizes the "work" of Freemasonry as a scientific activity, in other
words a    bdemonic activity, directed by a non-Christian transcendent force:

Now the strength of Freemasonry lies in the collective will of its members.
When they meet it is only to work, and since no energy is wasted, every lodge
is a seed-bed of moral and social change.
But do not ask the vast majority of Freemasons to give reasons for what they
do. They act by instinct, following shadowy traditions which for centuries
have exercised their suggestive influence.
Nevertheless there does exist a Masonic Doctrine, even if nowhere explicitly
formulated in words, which is to Freemasonry what Christianity is to the
Christian Churches; we may call it the science of Masonry....
Now the Great Architect, no doubt because he is less transcendant [sic] than
the God of the theologians, refers to an entity which does undeniably exist,
for the constructive work of Freemasonry h   gas, as its origin and
inspiration, an ideal which gives birth to an immense energy. A force superior
to themselves impels Masons and co-ordinates their efforts with an
intelligence far exceeding that possessed by any one individual among them.
Such is the hard fact which emerges and before which we bow our heads. Let
every man interpret it as he pleases.(61)

Oswald Wirth here admits that the Masonic Great Architect of the Universe is
not the God of Christianity. Lantoine and Wirth were friends. Both lived a
half century following Albert Pike's death. Both understood Lucifer was the
god of Freemasonry. although "less transcendant''[sic] than the God of
Christians. Like Pike, they were cognizant of the spiritual activity in
Freemasonry, calling it "scientific.""
We have discovered that the "work" of Masonry, even if not known or understood
by the majority of i   {nitiates, is controlled through a few men -- men under
the direct influence of Satan - Lucifer to them -- and his demonic forces of
darkness. This was true back then, and remains true today. We will cite two
current examples.
The first is from 33rd degree Freemason Manly P. Hall, a philosophical source
for the contemporary New Age Movement in America. Hall founded the
Philosophical Research Society of Los Angeles, which continues to carry on his
teachings. Four of his books of particular interest to Masons are Freemasonry
of the Ancient Egyptians; Dionysian Artficers: An Encyclopedic Outline of
Masonic, Hermetic, Quabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy: and
Lost Keys of Freemasonry.
Lost Keys of Freemasonry was originally published in 1923. In 1976 it was
reprinted by The Philosophical Research Society. So important is this book to
Blue Lodge Masons that it is distrib   euted to all Masonic libraries by the
Masonic publishing house of Richmond, Virginia. Not only does Lost Keys
confirm that the hierarchy in Freemasonry remains true to the Luciferian
doctrine today, but most significantly reveals that the Supreme Council is now
willing to inform the Blue Lodge Masons of the Luciferian orientation and
direction of Freemasonry. We quote from Hall's lecture on the Fellow Craft
degree (2nd degree):

The day has come when Fellow Craftsmen must know and apply their knowledge.
The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion, which places the energy
of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with
great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly.
When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper
application of the dynamo of living power, he has lea   ńrned the mystery of
his Craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may
step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply Ithisl

The second example which corroborates that the hierarchy in Freemasonry is
still under the direct influence of Satan is revealed in the Satanic symbol
worn by every Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council at Charleston.
It is the symbol of the Baphomet. The traditional drawing of the Baphomet
shows a winged demon with female breasts and a horned goat head. Allegedly
this was the god Baal.(63)
There are several symbols that represent the Baphomet. One is the upside-down
five-pointed star with the horned goat head of Mendez pictured inside the
star. This rendition symbolizes the "god of lust." The upside-down star is
universally recognized in witchcraft as a symbol of Satan. It is also the sym
 bol of the Eastern Star, the female auxiliary of American Freemasonry.
Freemason Eliphas Levi, having studied for forty years the Templar documents
confiscated from the Vatican, sketched the Baphomet. It, too, is a demon with
a horned, goat head. In addition, it has a serpent's tongue, a long, barbed
tail and cloven hind's feet -- all traditional symbols of Satan.(64) Mackey's
Encyclopedia of Freemasonry admits that a symbol of Baphomet was indeed worn
by the Knights Templar, but denies that it represented Satan.(65)
This Baphomet is also concealed in a geometric symbol in the form of the
Templar splayed cross with two additional crossbars. This rendition was worn
by Satanist and Freemason Aleister Crowley and, according to The Curse of
Baphomet, is listed as a symbol o   "f Baphomet in the Masonic O.T.O.
publication Equinox, Vol. 3, No. 1, page 243.66 This same symbol is worn by
every Sovereign Grand Commander of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, Southern
Jurisdiction. Appendix 2, Fig. 30 shows it around the neck of Albert Pike and
embroidered in the Fez of the Past Sovereign Grand Commander of the 33rd
degree, Henry C. Clausen. It is also on the letterhead of the current Grand
Commander, C. Fred Kleinknecht. (See front pages of this book).

Templar Control Was Short-Lived

Pike, Mazzini, Palmerston, and Bismarck succeeded in uniting the Masonic
hierarchy in the Luciferian religion, but failed in their endeavor to unite
the world politically. Instead, the world was plunged into World War   U I.
Meanwhile, English Freemasonry was not to be outdone by the Templar Palladian
Rite. English Masonry had plans of her own to unite all Masonry in the darkest
depths of occultism. Her banner today is the "New Age Movement." She intends
to annihilate the Church through syncretism with this doctrine. Tomorrow she
plans to impose on mankind a one-world totalitarian government controlled by
her global Babylonian religion.
Although the hierarchy in Masonry believe Lucifer is good and that in him is
light, we are about to record the incredible evil that lurks in the dark minds
of the more depraved personalities who have taken up the standard of Albert
Pike and are plunging Masonry into perdition.
pps 386-393
By 1889 the hierarchy of English Freemasonry needed only a slight push to
plunge headlong into Luciferianism. The World Congress of F   Xreemasonry gave
the British Brotherhood the required nudge. On July 14, 1889, the twenty-three
33rd degree Supreme Councils were hosted by the French Grand Lodge at Paris.
The purpose of this gathering was not to unite the Councils politically, but
spiritually -- under the banner of the Luciferian doctrine. When Albert Pike's
letter of exhortation was read, the hierarchy of the English Grand Lodge
accepted the Luciferian doctrine, yet remained loyal to the Monarchy. The
French and American Grand Lodge hierarchies followed, but without giving up
their republican ideals.
Although a few Grand Orient Masons had accepted Luciferianism years before
this convention, the general body of the Grand Orient lodges, which were
formally atheistic, boycotted the French Grand Lodge convention,
simultaneously hosting their own congress. Thereafter, the Grand Or   Zients
were disallowed admittance to the annual meetings of the Supreme Council of
Grand Lodges.(8)
Two of the most prominent Grand Orient Masons who did convert to the
Luciferian doctrine were women -- Britisher Annie Besant (1847-1933), and
Russian Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891). Both were members of English
and French obediences. Both were destined to be the founders of our modern New
Age Movement.
Madam Blavatsky had turned to Luciferianism in 1856, when she was initiated
into the Grand Orient Carbonari by Mazzini. Blavatsky did more than publish
her revolutionary ideals. She lived them. In 1866 she joined 33rd degree Grand
Orient Freemason General Garibaldi to fight by his side during the Italian
revolution at Viterbo and then at Mentana, where she was seriously wounded and
left on the field as dead. In 1875 she founded the Theosophica   ∑l Society in
New York, joined English Freemasonry in 1877, and settled in London in 1887.
In London she published her Theosophical magazine, Lucifer the Light-
Annie Besant, sister of Freemason Sir Walter Besant, was converted to
Luciferianism by Albert Pike. At the behest of her brother, she was destined
to become the president of the Theosophical Society after Blavatsky's death.
Annie was in Paris that fateful 1889 summer when Albert Pike introduced his
Luciferian Doctrine to the twenty-three Supreme Councils of Grand Lodge
Freemasonry. She was not, however, in Paris to attend that convention.
Instead, as an accomplished speaker in her own right, she was scheduled to
lecture at the Grand Orient convention, which was hosting three other occu
lt congresses. Her lecture, which met with overwhelming success, was intended
to turn the atheists toward Spiritism. De Poncins tells the story:

In July 1889 the International Workers' Congress was held in Paris, Mrs.
[Annie] Besant being one of the delegates. Concurrently, the Marxistes [sic]
held their International Congress and Mrs. Besant moved, amid great applause,
for amalgamation with them. And yet another International Congress was then
being held in Paris, to wit, that of the Spiritists. The delegates of these
occultists were the guests of the Grand Orient, whose headquarters they
occupied at 16, rue Cadet. The president of the Spiritists was Denis, and he
has made it quite clear that the three     congresses there came to a mutual
understanding, for, in a speech which he afterwards delivered, he said:

'The occult Powers are at work among men. Spiritism is a powerful germ which
will develop and bring about transformation of laws, ideas and of social
forces. It will show its powerful influence on social economy and public

As a result of these three conventions of Unionists, Marxists and Spiritists
hosted by Grand Orient Freemasonry, an amalgamation of mystical spiritism with
atheism was successfully accomplished. Although atheism remained Grand
Orient's published dogma, these Masonic congresses started a spiritist
movement -- the New Age Movement -- which today has encircled the globe.
Funding the New Age Movement: The Lucis Trust

Another   3 follower of Madame Blavatsky and member of the Theosophical
Society was Alice Bailey. Bailey, a self-proclaimed witch whose husband was a
Freemason, founded in 1922 the Lucifer Publishing Company of New York, which
name has since been changed to Lucis Trust to disguise its real origins and
identity (Lucis is-Latin for Lucifer.) Lucifer Publishing marketed Bailey's
first book, Initiation Human and Solar.(61) Later she published
Externalization of the Hterarchy, in which she claimed the hierarchy in
Freemasonry was responsible for the New Age Movement. She said the "work of
destruction" [social destabilization] began in the year 1775."(62)
Bailey was probably referring to the Illuminati. Seventy years later Albert
Pike revived the conspiracy in the Palladian. At the turn of the century the
hierarchy became do   >miciled in the O.T.O. Today the hierarchy resides in
Bailey's Lucis Trust. In 1982 Lucis Trust was headquartered at 866 United
Nations Plaza, Suite 566/7, New York, NY 10017-1888. It has since moved to
another location in New York. At its helm in 1982 was Freemason Robert S.
McNamara, Secretary of State under Kennedy and past president of the World
Bank. Today McNamara meets regularly with the World Federalist Movement to
read Blavatsky and Besant. On a clear midnight he is noted for bathing in
A few other prominent members of Lucis Trust are David Rockefeller, major
stockholder in Chase Manhattan Bank and Exxon; his brother John D. Rockefeller
IV, an avowed Buddhist; Cyrus Vance, Secretary of State under Jimmy Carter;
Rabbi Marc Tannebaum, head of the American Jewish Committee; the Marshall
Field family   C; Anglican Bishop Paul Moore, founder of a school of
witchcraft in the Anglican Church of St. John the Divine, New York; Walter
Cronkite, retired news anchor of CBS News; Ted Turner, owner of Cable News
Network, who promotes the Church of Scientology on his network; and Barbara
Marx Hubbard, a prominent speaker for the New Age Movement and the once-
considered-running-mate of Presidential candidate Walter Mondale. Last, but
not least, is 33rd degree Freemason Henry Clausen, Past Supreme Grand
Commander of the Supreme Council, Southern Jurisdiction of Scottish Rite
The Lucis Trust also accepts corporate memberships. Among them are the
following prestigious organizations: the Rockefeller  Foundation, the Carnegie
Endowment Fund, the United Nations Association, the Theosophical Order of
Service, the Findhorn Fo
undation, Greenpeace USA, Greenpeace UK, Amnesty International, and the
Southern Jurisdiction of Scottish Rite Freemasonry.(65)
Under MaNamara's administration, Lucis Trust paid for a full-page ad promoting
the New Age in Reader's Digest, October 1982, page 203. In December 1991
Reader's Digest ran the ad again on page 201. Both ads are reproduced in
Appendix 2, Fig. 11. Deceptively written to appeal to all religions, the ads
contain the New Age prayer to bring in Lord Maitreya, the New Age Christ.
With such corporate and individual wealth at its disposal, the New Age
Movement can easily buy multi-million dollar advertising across the nation.
The Lucis Trust has undoubtedly taken the place of Weishaupt's Illuminati,
Pike's Palladian and Kellner's O.T.O. Its dominant position and purpose are
identical to the previous three.
 In February 1995, The Times of London, tied Bill Clin   ‹ton's rise in
politics to illegal drugs:

What is the basic truth of this Whitewater matter? To put it briefly: The
state of Arkansas was corrupt the way Mexico is corrupt, long before Bill
Clinton entered state politics, long before he was born.
The corruption goes back over a hundred years to the period after the Civil
War [when 33rd degree Freemason Albert Pike ran the political machine in
Arkansas]. In the 1970s, the corruption came to be financed by drug money,
even before Clinton became governor. People got killed; we even know the names
of some of the hit men.
By the early 1980s, drug importation through Arkansas, much of it through Mena
airport. reached billions of dollars.
The new narco-millionaires bought political protection by bribery and by
financing political campaigns, including Clinton's. They made it their
business to involve and implicate their political allies.

So, Freemasons who achieve the 30th degree may know nothing of the content of
twenty-four of the degrees that they are supposed to understand!
Whatever it was in these degrees which had offended the Duke of Sussex, his
system of controlled patronage and deliberate denial had succeeded in almost
destroying these rituals. The then leading American Freemason Albert Pike,
speaking to the Supreme Grand Council of the Southern Jurisdiction (USA),
unashamed of his appalling ignorance and arrogance said in 1878:

The truth is that the Rite was nothing, and the Rituals are almost
nought, for the most part a lot of worthless trash, until 1855.(20)

It seems Pike considered the rituals a heterogeneous and chaotic mass.    ¨His
total failure to understand them caused him to dismiss them, describing them
as 'incoherent nonsense and jargon; in some of the degrees of absolute
nothingness - as having been purposely constructed to conceal their
meaning'.(21) Pike then proved himself a worthy successor to the Duke of
Sussex when he set about assisting the Supreme Council of England in its work
of ritual suppression. He wrote:

The Supreme Council for the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States at
length undertook the indispensable and long-delayed task of revising and
reforming the work and Ritual of the thirty degrees under its jurisdiction.
Retaining the essentials of the degrees and all the means by which the members
recognise one another, it has sought out and developed the leading idea of
each degree, rejected the puerilities and absurdities with which many of them
were disfigured, and made of them a connected system of moral, religious and
philosophical instruction   @. Sectarian of no creed, it has yet thought it
not improper to use the old allegories, based on occurrences detailed in the
Hebrew and Christian books, and drawn from the Ancient Mysteries of Egypt,
Persia, Greece, India, the Druids and the Essenes, as vehicles to communicate
the Great Masonic Truths; as it has used the legends of the Crusades and the
Ceremonies of the Orders of Knighthood.(22)

However, the work of destruction was not yet complete, for Reverend Whitaker
was still not satisfied with the changes. He commented about other alterations
which he was not prepared to specify:

A parenthesis in the prayer in the black room is the very antithesis of the
teaching of Christ; some portions of the ritual are meaningless. It would be a
great thing if a small committee of theological experts undertook the revision
of t   ķhe ritual. The larger part of it is so beautiful that it is a pity to
let blemishes remain which wound the feelings of all who pause and think.(23)

It was clear from this study of the history of the Scottish Rite of the 33
degrees that whatever the ritual had been, it had been deliberately altered to
suit the personal prejudices of the Duke of Sussex, First Grand Master of the
United Grand Lodge of England and Sovereign Grand Inspector-General Albert
Pike of the Supreme Council of the Southern Jurisdiction of the USA. We could
only wonder what had been in those Jacobite Scottish degrees which so offended
these senior Freemasons that they decided to ignore their own responsibilities
to Freemasonry which told them that it is not in the power of any man or body
of men to bring about changes to the ritual of Freemasonry.
