Conspiracy History

Conspiracy is not theory, it is history. In Machiavelli's History of Florence, he records literally dozens of conspiracies aimed at controlling the government of a single city. Whether it is the conspiracy to assassinate Giuliano and Lorenzo de' Medici or the conspiracy of the Duke of Milan with the Canneschi family to dislodge the Bentivogli family from its position of primacy in Bologna in order to disrupt that city's alliance with Venice and Florence, his history of the Italian peninsula is literally full of documented conspiracies in every single chapter.

And there is evidence - copious evidence - of the Promethean conspiracy to rule the entire world dating back centuries, with more being uncovered all the time.

THE MYSTERIOUS HOTEL AT THE CENTER OF SPYGATE

Hotels play an important role in the story of the Deep State conspiracy against the President who, aptly, made his fortune building hotels. One hotel, however, stands out from the rest. Andaz

The site where the Andaz hotel stands today in the City of London was originally occupied by the Bethlem Royal Hospital. 

The hospital was founded in 1247 by the Italian Bishop of Bethlehem, Goffredo de Prefetti, to care for those deemed insane. By the 1600’s, the institution had become synonymous with madness itself. The locals called it ‘bedlam,’ the word has since entered the English language to mean chaos and disorder.

Due to the cruel and inhumane treatment received by patients, the hospital  closed and moved to another site.

In 1884, the Liverpool Street Hotel (later changed to the Great Eastern Hotel) was built on the former site of the hospital. The architectural giants, Charles and Edward Barry, were the designers. In Bram Stoker’s classic horror novel, Dracula, the vampire hunter Van Helsing stays at the Great Eastern Hotel on a visit to London.

In the 1990’s, as the hotel was in the process of being refurbished, engineers noticed discrepancies in the blueprints. Upon further investigation, they discovered a majestic Masonic temple hidden behind false walls.

But it's all just conspiracy theory, right?  I mean, how crazy would it sound to insist that a famous hotel has a secret Masonic temple hidden inside it? And who, one wonders, was taking part in the occult rituals being performed there? At some point, you are going to have to admit that your blindness to the increasingly apparent reality of the spiritual war surrounding you is an intentional choice on your part.

Hanlon's Razor is an aphorism designed to mislead the midwitted. "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity" is simply false. It would be far more accurate to say: "Never attribute to stupidity that which could be motivated by evil." This is because evil, being intrinsically subject to falsehood, is inevitably going to look stupid at times to anyone who possesses even a modicum of the relevant truth.

I've been in that temple at the Great Eastern. They used to do music events there in the 2000s. The hotel as it is now has a really weird atmosphere that doesn't feel like a hotel at all, it's very dark and claustrophobic. This is after the refit when it was bought by Andaz and the casual music nights ended. That part of London, it should be noted, is where Jack the Ripper conducted his infamous activities, and is also the heart of the (((immigrant))) area of the latter 1800s (see Siege of Sidney Street). Liverpool Street Station is also where the Kindertransport children arrived into London. It's also the oldest part of London, the original Roman city, and they recently reopened a Mithraic temple that was discovered in the 1950s not far from the Great Eastern. It's under the new Bloomberg building, and they made a point of relocating it to its original spot after it had been previously displaced by the original building work which uncovered it. The beautiful Cheapside Hoard was also unearthed very close by, indicating that over time the area has been home to extraordinary wealth and opulence as well as extreme misery and depravity.

As an attorney, I know that a conspiracy in law is defined simply as an agreement by two or more people to commit a crime and a substantial step in furtherance thereof. A classic example is you and a buddy agree to rob a bank, and he buys two guns during the prep phase. Now you both can be convicted of criminal conspiracy. People who deny conspiracies exist are ignoring all the people currently in prison who were convicted of conspiracy to commit a crime.

"Never attribute to stupidity that which could be motivated by evil."
Yes! What better cover for evil than to have their evil machinations dismissed as stupidity?

I can remember years ago before I discovered this blog and used to listen to the Daily Wire on occasion, Shapiro would always trot out Hanlon's razor to dismiss the idea that political malfeasance could possibly be intentional. Major red flag.

On a slightly related tangent: this idea of providing cover for evil is also at the core of the New Age religions. Always with the misdirection and redefinition.

I do find it quite startling how the story of Bedlam and its transformation into an upmarket Hotel with a hidden Masonic lodge overlays the social engineering strategies of the Ordo ab Chao Prometheans. It's almost as if they think symbolism is important.

Blogger rumpole5 September 14, 2020 9:52 AM  

Both of my grandfathers were active in the Masons, and many of my friends growing up were, as well, and I dimly recall attending a ceremony of the Rainbow Girls where one of my friends was inducted into that Masonic organization. The US post office was located on the bottom floor of the Masonic Lodge in the little town where we lived in the mid 60s. From all appearances the group appeared to me at the time to be a relatively harmless fraternal club. The only way that I can resolve that personal experience with what I have heard about the organization here and elsewhere, since that time is that there must be a very large number of dupe Mason members surrounding a secret rotten core group. I've always had reservations about organizations, including churches. They always seem to attract people with psychological issues, and sooner or later there are factions, recriminations, affairs, scandals, and so on. I have read that any human group that grows beyond about 150 people cannot interact effectively eg:

https://marenschmidt.com/2015/06/the-rule-of-150/

The Amish church splits off into a new congregation at about 150, and that group seems to be one of the few demographically healthy groups in the USA.

Blogger Silent Draco September 14, 2020 9:54 AM  

At that point of the 19th century, Masonic temples were openly signed and acknowledged. *Why* would a hidden temple be purpose-built, concealed in in a hotel, unless it's for evil intent? That area of the City sounds cursed or shadowed; temple might be feeding off this, or adding to it.

Went inside one Masonic temple for a music concert, a few years ago. I won't go back. There was a very odd feeling to the auditorium, and I wanted to leave ASAP. All the polite people ushering gave the impression of "one little taste of the fruit won't hurt you!"

Blogger Scuzzaman September 14, 2020 9:55 AM  

@5 Sargent.matrim

This is a really good point. In fact God Himself discusses them. In the KJV the word used is "confederacy" but if you look at the historical context in Isaiah 8 it is plain that you could swap out the word for conspiracy and the meaning would not change one bit. It is about five kings joining together to conquer Israel.

11 For the Lord spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,
12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
13 Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.


(Obadiah 1: 7 makes it even plainer.)

This also reinforces Vox' point that we are obliged always to resist them by speaking the truth without fear in response to their lies.

Directly on topic:

Michael Anton, the author of the famous "The Flight 92 Election" has penned a new gem entitled, The Coming Coup

The pertinent , on-topic quote is,.


In his famously exhaustive discussion of conspiracies, Machiavelli goes out of his way to emphasize the indispensability of “operational security”—i.e., silence—to success. The first rule of conspiracy is, you do not talk about the conspiracy. The second rule of conspiracy is, you do not talk about the conspiracy. So why are the Democrats—publicly—talking about the conspiracy? Because they know that, for it to succeed, it must not look like a conspiracy. They need to plant the idea in the public mind, now, that their unlawful and illegitimate removal of President Trump from office will somehow be his fault.


I hope Mr. Anton reads VP and will join in and share his famous shrimp gougeres recipe during the sure to follow lively discussion.

Never heard of a mystery cult before? One could argue that mystery cults are the only true cults, but typically it's just that they're the cults that have embraced the fact that they're deceiving everyone including their adherents, and encoded it into their written/spoken rules. Freemasonry is a classic mystery cult, with layer upon layer upon layer of secrecy, initiation, and completely occulted ultimate core.

As I have grown to actually believe what I have professed (that is, the word of God), I have come to the realization that demonic possession must be absurdly common to appear so rare. After all, what was true in Abraham's day was true in Christ's day and is true in ours.

Practicing law, most blacks in government, from court clerks all the way to hearing officers and judges who passed the bar before they made it more difficult, tend to be stupid. They are some of the best of the lot, but it is very hard for them to grasp anything outside the rote limits of their usual job.

Quite a few whites are also dumb. They got in the job because their father knew someone or they were owed a favor. Or they just don;t care at all and haven't cared for 20 years

But yes, as you get into the higher level offices, and most of the elected offices, things that seem oppressive are just because of evil. The government hurting a business or person or group of people because the boss is looking for a bribe or just likes hurting people.

Side observation: some of the black elected officials are amazingly stupid. And superstitious.

I worked in commercial real estate in the nineties in Toronto and the historic Masonic Temple/Concert Hall was about to be sold to CTV. As part of building inspections and due diligence, the full body skeletal remains of a man was found encased under the floor boards in a room. After the Toronto police did their investigation to eliminate foul play, it was chalked up as a masonic rite and the skeleton was a deceased former member who had been placed there in the early 1900’s. So much for their “nutty” beliefs. It should also be noted that it’s location is 888 Yonge St and was also the site of an old church.

That's almost certainly correct.

For a bunch of members the Masons are like the Rotary Club and the Lions and the Moose and the Eagles: a way to network, a way for someone with no church affiliation to do something charitable.

My father was a mason. I know that there were secret rituals to memorize for each level, three levels for York Rite and 33 for Scottish Rite, if I remember correctly. I was never a mason, so I have only the vaguest idea what the content is. I do know that the masons have books of philosophy which purport to explain their stuff. On a quick skim, dad's books looked very New-Agey, but New Age dressed in the slightly archaic language of an earlier generation. I was not a Christian when I skimmed through those books, but I don't think there is anything in them for a Christian.

The ritual work/memorization has to do primarily with the induction ceremonies which, by the way, specifically require an unequivocal declaration of faith in God.

Does this mean all Masons are good men and faithful believers? no, but at least fremasons try to screen out the atheists and degenerates (a recommendation is also required). That is far more than the Rotarians (objectively neo-babelists)n the Moose, the Elks, or the Loyal Order of Water Buffalo require.

There are only 3 degrees in Freemasonry. The Scottish Rite "degrees" are not actual degrees--more in the nature of morality lessons it attempts to inculcate. Anyone who talks about 33rd degree masons only displays ignorance as the much discussed 33rd degree is an honoray award given basically as a lifetime service award.

Freemasonry's weakness is a tendency to civnattery.

The peasant's revolt followed the ancient Pilgrim's Way through Kent into London, crossing London Bridge and eventually ending up in Smithfield, which is about a mile from where Bedlam used to stand, as far as i am able to remember off the top of my head. Smithfield itself has an interesting history, it was the place where executions were carried out (along with Tyburn), where William Wallace met his end and many burnings at the stake were conducted. It is near the former centre of power of the Knights of St. John, which the 1381 rebels apparently attacked. The remnants of the Knights' priory still stand today, having been seized, sacked and much diminished by Henry VIII during the dissolution of the monasteries. The area was also (in)famous for the extraordinarily debauched Bartholomew Fair, which often ended in riot, as well as being the main open air livestock market for London. Smithfield is the last ancient market in central London still operating on its original location, but will soon be moved out for 'regeneration' purposes. The workers of Smithfield marched in support of Enoch Powell in 1968, and are the inspiration behind my handle. It's still a bastion of white, working-class London, so its loss will be immense.

They're in all the churches/temples/mosques of all the denominations of every religion. They're in government meeting halls. They're in backrooms, on private land, and in knitting clubs.

Many are involved in some form of satanism, and when you understand that, you grasp they function much like Christians do who get together with others of their kind in life outside church buildings. They don't always look harmful or obvious and you probably personally know a few.

Out of curiosity, I opened the available online version and found 4 references to Lucifer, all of which and condemnations and repudiations. The first mention is this:

"The Apocalypse is, to those who receive the nineteenth degree, the Apotheosis of the Sublime Faith which aspires to God alone, and despises all the pomps and works of Lucifer. Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning."

It goes on this way for some paragraphs.

So now, out of equal curiosity, can I ask you to cite the passage to which you are referring?

@80 Yes, however in looking up the quote I realized that I am in error. The book with the quote I referenced is actually "The Lost Keys of Freemasonry" by Manley P Hall, not "Morals and Dogma".

It has been over a decade since I have wallowed in this type of thing so I guess my memory is a little off.

Anyways, thanks for holding me to the fire. Here is the quote:

"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 learned the mystery of his
Craft. The seething, surging energies of Lucifer
are in his hands and before he may step onward
and upward he must prove his ability to properly
apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of
his forefather, Tubal Cain, who with the mighty
strength of the war god hammered his sword into
a plowshare."

Ah, well, I'll only note that Hall wrote that book when he was 21, which is 33 years before he became a Freemason.

Albert Pike, on the other hand, was a lodge leader of some sort.

This is not to claim that there are not elements of the Freemasons stranded to the occult and Luciferians - they're are strong indications of such groups. But taken as a whole, the evidence of it being intrinsic or even common is virtually non-existent and is almost always based on the works of authors who are not Freemasons. Whereas the writings of ranking Masons are consistently opposed.

It's intriguing that one of the branches of Masonry held a vote regarding a mandate that every Hall have an open Bible - a strange departure for an organization that has generally held to absolute freedom of conscience in religion.

It's enough to make one suspect an ongoing spiritual struggle amongst the Masons.

Blogger Stilicho September 14, 2020 9:43 PM  

No, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. As attested to in the bible that is present in the lodge.

There can be Jewish or Moslem masons as they do, in theory, have faith in God. Believing that the God they worship is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jews or moslems who join the fraternity may do so with a copy of the Torah or Quran present. The idea being that they are declaring their faith in God as represented in their holy books.

Freemasonry is NOT a religion. It is a fraternity. So it is very ecumenical in that sense. It just has certain minimum standards for membership. Standards that are lacking in most civic organizations.

York Rite masonry (an auxillary organization like Scottish Rite, or the Shrine) speficially requires all members to be Christian.

No. Culturally christian lodges will have a bible. Culturally mohammedan lodges will have a koran, and so on. Any old god will do. Mere agreement is sufficient.

Masons will not invite you to join, but they will beat very close around that bush. One way to skirt the subject is to talk about membership requirements. When members of my father's lodge were not-quite inviting me to join, they said explicitly that one of the requirements of membership was belief in a higher power. A god, not the God.

I've met a number of York Rite masons, and never met one who even claimed to be born again. Cultural christianity is what the York Rite requirement amounts to in practice. If you take the messiah's name in vain when you curse, you are a cultural christian.

Blogger Stilicho September 15, 2020 12:33 PM  

So? This distinguishes them from other professed Christians in what manner? Again, it is a fraternity which seeks to impose certain minimum standards and common ground as a condition of membership. It is not a church, nor a religious order.

I've heard plenty of Elks take the Lord's name in vain. - ha ve also heard plenty of Catholics, Methodists, etc. do the same. Why would you expect a fraternity to fare any better?

Blogger Stilicho September 15, 2020 12:42 PM  

I cannot answer for what your local lodge says. A higher power is not sufficient, but so what? If they got it wrong, then that is on them. Every US state has an independent Grand Lodge and local lodges are answerable to their Grand Lodge.

Let's assume for the moment you are correct and your lodge merely requires a belief in a "higher power" similar to AA. Why do you think it makes the fraternity less than/worse than etc. Any of the multitude of civic organizations from other fraternal orgs to gardening clubs, to sports teams/leagues that have no such requirement?

Blogger Stilicho September 15, 2020 12:48 PM  

Dave, you do not know what you are talking about. Reading something on the internet does not make it so. In every single lodge I have ever been in, there is a copy of the Bible (KJV). Moslems and Jews can join and they would declare their belief in God upon their holy book (quran or torah).

There may be organizations that claim to be masonic which are not. Hindus are pagans and cannot be masons.

Again, though, even if you were correct, why would that make masonry worse than other organizations that don't even have such a minimal requirement?

Stilicho,

All you’re saying is you don’t know what the inner circle teaches and practices. That’s not a criticism (quite the opposite) but it also has no bearing on the true nature of freemasonry.

I will say that you write like a man desperate to avoid the conclusion that his dad was involved in something nefarious.

Blogger Stilicho September 15, 2020 4:51 PM  

You are confusing my comments with someone else. I am a freemason. The other commenters father was. I am speaking solely from my own personal knowledge and experience. Those ascribing various nefarious motives or behaviors are relaying what they've heard or read, etc.

No one speaks for all freemasons. It isn't a single body. Each state lodge governs its own affairs and there are some differences which arise over time. Moreover, individual freemasons are subject to the same failings as all men. My comments here are for the purpose of providing information about what masonry is as opposed to the plentiitude of of misinformation.

At the end, I am still puzzled by the hatred of masonic lodges for daring to exclude atheists and require faith in God (or for the sake of argument a "higher power" ) when those same people have no such objection to other fraternities or organizations which don't even have such minimal standards. After all, it isn't a church, it isn't a religion, it's a fraternity. There aren't any big secrets, or if there are they are so well hidden that 99.99% of masons never hear a whisper of them... which would prevent the use of those members for a nefarious, conspiratorial purpose.

Blogger Stilicho September 15, 2020 4:56 PM

I'm wondering why this was mentioned here. This would be more appropriate when talking to people who care about atheists ability to do anything, and when the overarching theme here against them is their secrecy?

"which would prevent the use of those members for a nefarious, conspiratorial purpose.", well that's absolutely not true. Anyone can be an unwitting accomplice, especially at any organization.

This feels a bit too defensive. Maybe because of all the freemasons bashing, but it is nothing new for them and they should be used to it by now. There was even a political party back in the day trying to get rid of them.

Not a bear, and faith vice belief does nothing to rectify that there are other lodges that do other things. Either pick your own to defend and stick to it, or take responsibility for everything, no playing hopscotch.

As an extra, I can't think of many other men's clubs that claim, even if only "allegorically", to have been founded in ancient anywhere at all, let alone around three thousand years ago. But if it is an allegory only, why the choice of names of real people? Why the many conflicting apocryphal stories of who the key figure really was and what really happened to him?

I submit that the allegory is about inability to discern truth (the secrets were lost), and punishment for divulging secrets, veiled as being about loyalty and death.

Grand Lodge of Washington, in my case. It is certainly possible that the local lodge was coloring outside the lines a bit. The leadership at that time was all Greatest and Silent Generation, were cultural christians, were definitely not comfortable talking about religious matters, and were not about to dig deeply into what anyone might mean by ``supreme being'' or ``great architect.''

Blogger Stilicho September 15, 2020 9:27 PM  

That sounds reasonable. The lodge is not a religious organization and is ecumenical within the limits I have described. The Grand Lodge in my jurisdiction specifically refers to God as I mentioned before, but also refers to Him as The Great Architect of the Universe in reference to Him being the Creator as revealed in the Bible.

My apologies. I did confuse you with another.

I concluded long ago that all these societies, lodges, fraternities, etc, were basically for two purposes;

1) to soak up people of sufficient intelligence and/or integrity that they might otherwise represent a pool of nascent dissenters to the regnant order, and

2) to train them to be loyal to hierarchy. Any hierarchy, it doesn’t matter which, as long as it’s to “us” and not God.

Your performance to this point, admirable as it has been in many respects, does nothing to question this conclusion and much to maintain it.

If it’s of any interest at all I hold that the devil has a trap for everyone, a false god tuned to attract each different personality. I would never claim to be free of all his wiles, merely to have avoided the more obvious traps.

I wish you God speed.
