Oil and the Gulf.. Turning now to more recent events, George Bush Snr. for years was head of the CIA, an organisation dedicated to lies, propaganda, deception and manipulation, as demonstrated by a major disinformation campaign which, in the public mind, successfully put the blame on Libya and the Soviet Union for terrorism in the 1970’s . As Vice-president and President, Bush Snr. was later involved in the Iran Contra arms scandal and the profits of drug trafficking by the CIA that helped to finance it. Later his administration did so much to precipitate the Gulf War, by implementing a policy whereby America supported and armed Iraq to help neutralise the US’s adversary Iran in the Iran/Iraq war. The US then actively pressed Kuwait to flood the oil market at the expense of Iraq, plunging it into economic crisis, precipitating the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, and then ordered “Desert Storm” which included the near total destruction of Iraq’s infrastructure by mass bombing, the burying of Iraqi conscripts in trenches by the use of excavators, and the slaughter of more Iraqi conscripts in retreat under white flags of surrender . As for the chemical and biological weapons that Iraq once had, these or the technology and materials to develop them were supplied by the US and Britain. The purpose of the war was not to remove a totalitarian regime with an atrocious human rights record against dissident minorities, but rather to destroy an independently minded country with the second largest known oil reserves in the world, intent on controlling its oil resources for its own benefit. Since then sanctions have been kept in place with appalling consequences for the ordinary people of Iraq – these were never going to bring down Saddam Hussein, whose regime has successfully insulated itself against the worst effects. Rather they have been used to control the oil flow and to keep Iraq weak and ineffective on the global stage. Furthermore, two utterly false claims were made against the Iraqis to demonise them. First the claim during the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait, that Iraqi soldiers ripped babies off incubators in a Kuwaiti hospital was totally untrue – the sobbing young girl who made the allegation was the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the U.S., and the whole thing was stage managed by international public relations firm Hill & Knowlton who were employed by the Kuwaiti government in exile . Secondly, the oil wells of Kuwait were set ablaze not by the retreating Iraqis, but by fast moving teams of U.S. special forces. U.S. companies based in Texas, in which the Bush family has large stakes, made a financial killing from the clean up and reconstruction work. 
THE ESOTERIC LINK - FREEMASONRY AND OTHER SECRET SOCIETIES
The last 250 years or so has witnessed the march of Newtonian science, Darwinian evolution and much more. We have amassed invaluable knowledge of the physical world around us. But this is only a small part of the picture, and in many parts of the world, humanity has become so unaware spiritually that it is now regarded as quite normal and reasonable to see ourselves as just our physical bodies and when those die, it’s oblivion. This mechanistic view of the universe, which is seen as no more than a chemical interaction of atoms and molecules - just some gigantic physical accident - is the one promoted by the scientific establishment. In the west, fewer and fewer people can accept Christianity’s explanation of life - one life on earth - could be long and prosperous, short and filled with poverty and hardship, or even just months or less, then all are judged on the basis of that one life, prior to some eternal afterlife elsewhere. None of this is helped by talk of “God” as “he” which for many, can’t help but conjure up some absurd image of a little old man in the sky. Eastern religions, especially Buddhism, with their knowledge and acceptance of reincarnation, are finding increasing acceptance in the west, along with many new age ideas incorporating the same fundamentals. Interestingly, early Christianity also accepted reincarnation, but abandoned it after the 5th Ecumenical Church Council of 553 A.D., following internal power struggles and manipulation that had a lot more to do with control of the masses than spiritual enlightenment. However these ideas are still on the fringe, as so many struggle to find some meaning to their lives.
Enlightened scientists on the cutting edge of quantum physics, with their understanding that everything is pure energy - even that which appears to be solid matter - begin to see that our consciousness is separate from our minds and bodies. It simply moves on to another dimension of existence following the “death” of the physical body – indeed scientific proof of survival of the death of the body now exists . If one can get hold of it, the evidence for re-incarnation is pretty convincing. There have been so many reports from reliable sources of past life experiences. People have brought back strikingly detailed descriptions of places and events, which have been verified as true from the records – so much so, as to rule out any possibility that they are making it up and trying to deceive us. If we all knew and accepted this, it would remove forever the fear of death that so many people have. This would have a profound influence on people in the western world. But the scientific establishment – the men and women in white coats, the priests and priestesses of the modern world – still largely mock such ideas.
It is suggested in some quarters, that those with high levels of esoteric knowledge have deliberately withheld that knowledge, and have been content to watch the march of conventional science divert us from knowing and understanding our true enduring nature, because in such a state of ignorance, we are so much more likely to become mere robots or cogs in a machine, and so much easier to control. In reality, each one of us is a unique aspect of God with enormous potential. Once we understand this, we will realise there is no need of intermediaries in the form of religions, dogmas and priests. We may begin to understand what true freedom is.
However for centuries, dogmatic religions have been used as the means to control the masses and their thinking. Christianity maintained that we were all worthless sinners, living by God’s grace. Our only hope was the promise of eternal life hereafter, provided we surrender to the dictates of the priesthood. In recent times, the message has been moderated somewhat, but millions have turned their back on all this and the church’s influence has been on the wane for years now and is only a shadow of what it was.
As people in the west have turned their backs on conventional religion, looking for new meaning, a host of loosely knit ideas have come together under the so called “New Age” movement. It lacks any form of central organisation or authority and has no leading figure or any particular doctrine – indeed no-one knows how many adherents it has or how many are influenced by it. No single book defines it or its objectives – yet there are dozens of books by numerous authors that come under this loose category known as New Age. However there is one underlying central idea – we are living in a period of great transformation - the new millennium marks the beginning of the age of Aquarius - (this is mirrored in conventional religion by the “Second Coming” or “Final Judgement”). This is presented as a transformation of society that is spiritual, social, ecological and self realising, and above all, that it is unstoppable! Such concepts are worrying to any centralised authority that wishes to maintain control, and they will naturally seek to hijack the belief systems upon which it is based.
If we look at many new age publications we begin to notice that many are not so free wheeling and self realising as might be thought at first. There are spiritual hierarchies, chosen ones, ascended masters, the Great White Brotherhood, Ashtar Commands, Arcturians, Pleidians, to name but a few. A whole array of cosmic characters to whom individuals could surrender their right to think for themselves. In addition there are a number of rather more earthly characters on the scene, in the form of self styled charismatic gurus with bands of doting followers. The New Age contains many liberating growth enhancing concepts that break the bonds of conventional thought and religion, but there is a real danger of a new form of dogma being imposed in the form of these spiritual hierarchies. The best advice to anyone involved in the New Age is - if the book or guru isn’t telling you that within you lies the power to liberate yourself and think for yourself ,and to realise that you are an aspect of the divine, with no need of intermediaries of any description whatsoever – then be wary and discriminating. Even a book such as “the Only Planet of Choice” which has won almost universal acclaim in the New Age movement and clearly contains a great deal of wisdom, nevertheless contains potentially very misleading concepts about hierarchies, returning gods and secret knowledge that will be revealed in time. Government agencies would want to know if spiritual esoteric communications with discarnate beings were genuine and if so how they could be used for their advantage. In fact as far as the conversations with the so called “Council of Nine” with whom the dialogue which make ups “The Only Planet of Choice” takes place is concerned, one or two of the instigators have been found to have links with the intelligence services . The danger in a book like this lies in the fact that because it contains a lot of good material, people believe it all, including, crucially, the misleading information as well. This is a widespread intelligence service tactic - when you want people to believe something, conceal the lies in something that contains a substantial degree of truth.
It’s now time to take look behind the spiritual scenes! What we find is a whole array of secret societies with rituals and claiming esoteric knowledge, imparted only to initiates. There are, and have been for many years, if not centuries, those who have believed in the principles of Synarchy. Whereas anarchy in its purest form essentially means complete freedom from state control, Synarchy is the opposite – complete control in three key areas – economics, politics and religion. It represents government by secret societies – initiates who operate from behind the scenes based on orders that are essentially masonic by nature. Synarchy in the early years of the 20th. century believed in a federal European Union… Its roots lie in the Knights Templar and the Rosicrucians, and are influential in the writings of Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey which in turn have influenced the New Age movement . It has spawned, for example, the Order of the Oriental Templars, Argenteum Astrum (Silver Stars) and the Order of Melchizedek, which is said to see itself as in charge of “consciousness reprogramming” .
Freemasonry - The largest secret society of all is freemasonry. More correctly called a society with secrets rather than a secret society, it is quite amazing how it can operate so openly, yet keep its secrets so well hidden, right down to the point of having masonic lodges in almost every town and city across the western world. For the men who congregate at our local masonic halls and organise charity events, it is clearly a convivial all male club, with the potential for making contacts and a bit of favouritism among initiates along the lines of “if you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours”. Belief in a supreme being is essential for initiates. That supreme being is referred to by masons as the “Great Architect of the Universe” and they will tell you that masonry involves a strict moral code of fellowship and good behaviour. The whole thing is based on rituals and ceremonies, which masons clearly love otherwise they wouldn’t get involved it. Add to that the feeling of being rather special because you have been let into some little esoteric secrets of the craft to which the rest of society (or the “profane” as non masons are referred to by initiates) are not party, and maybe it goes to your head a little! Almost none of them are likely to be above the 3 degrees of craft freemasonry known as entered apprentice, fellow craft and master mason. They are unlikely to have any real understanding of what is involved, and many will not even know that above the 3 degrees of craft freemasonry are a further 30 degrees of initiation, and they will certainly have no knowledge of the secrets and the objectives of the higher degrees. Only those at the very top (and this may be at levels beyond the 33rd. degree) know the full picture - implicit in what a friend of this writer, who is a freemason, told the writer: “at each degree they let you into another little secret…”
In Britain, craft freemasonry is run from the United Grand Lodge of England. It is to be found throughout the establishment, business and the professions, particularly in the civil service, the legal profession, police and the military. Its president is the Duke of Kent, which no doubt many would see as giving an image of respectability to the whole thing. (Royalty have long been associated with the craft, King George VI was an enthusiastic mason, although Charles and Andrew have not been initiated). Freemasonry defends itself by claiming an honourable moral code binding on initiates – certainly freemasons will go to considerable lengths to protect, defend and help their brother masons. However most men in the lowest three degrees are ordinary decent amiable citizens, but how many have ever stopped to think what they are invoking when they indulge in rituals involving daggers, nooses, coffins etc. and swearing oaths to keep the secrets of the craft, in the case of entered apprentice “under no less a penalty than that of having my throat cut, my tongue torn out by the root......or the more effective punishment of being branded as a wilfully perjured individual void of all moral worth......” Or in the case of fellow craft, a ritual death of “...of having my left breast laid open, my heart torn therefrom, and given to the ravenous birds, or devouring beasts of the field, as prey...” Or in the case of master mason “...being severed in two, my bowels burnt to ashes, and those ashes scattered over the face of the Earth and wafted by the four winds, that no trace of remembrance of so vile a wretch may be found among men....” (Since 1986, the words are no longer spoken by the initiate himself, but rather by the Worshipful Master - somewhat cosmetic perhaps!) 
Some people may think all this is harmless or just silly, but when we visit places, we can sometimes be struck by good feelings of peace and serenity that surround some places, yet other places can feel distinctly creepy, malevolent or hostile - in either case, it is related to the activities, good or bad as the case may be, that have taken place there. Martin Short in his book “Inside the Brotherhood”, describes the experiences of several people who felt, after visiting masonic temples, that they had encountered something that was extremely unpleasant and evil. Also documented are the experiences of several masons who came to feel the same way and who hurriedly left the craft. This writer and his wife took the opportunity of visiting their local masonic hall in the Welsh border town of Hay on Wye when it held an open day for the public, and both felt the atmosphere in the temple was distinctly unpleasant. This is perhaps not surprising because not by any stretch of the imagination, can the type of oaths and rituals above be said to conjure up feelings of love, compassion and benevolence. They are based on fear and, judging by how well the secrets are maintained, they have been very successful, even if the ritual deaths are not literally carried out.
Only those of “right mind” proceed beyond the three degrees of craft freemasonry to the higher “Royal Arch” levels, and only those at the very top levels will know what is behind the entire pyramid structure of freemasonry, those lower down do not. Is it some sort of devil worship for want of a better term... or some kind of invocation of the powers of evil? We all know that there are dedicated people on this earth who work tirelessly and selflessly for the good of humanity, and when we look at some of the terrible things that occur, we realise also that there must be those who do quite the opposite, though precisely who they are, what they do and how they do it, may be carefully concealed. Everyone perhaps can be open to the influences of good or evil, so we need to ask is the pyramid structure of freemasonry, and the unwitting involvement of ordinary men lower down in dubious oaths and rituals, being used by some very unpleasantly motivated people in high places, who understand the power of black magic and satanic rituals, to project malevolent energies throughout the network of our society, to help breed fear, exploitation and greed.
The origins of modern freemasonry are relatively recent. Its roots go back to the stonemasons of the middle ages who worked on our great cathedrals. They formed themselves into guilds to preserve and protect the skills of their trade - some of the masonic symbols of the apron, the square, the compass etc. are the leftovers of this. The old trade guilds fell apart after the reformation, with no further major building projects, so the guilds were thrown open to non masons. The rituals used today are largely the product of the freemasons of the late 17th. and 18th. centuries, although many of the actual esoteric secrets go back to ancient Egyptian times or earlier, and have been passed down through the mystery schools of Egypt, Babylon, ancient Greece, and then down through the middle ages by such orders as the Knights Templar, Cathars and Rosicrucians, and from there to modern freemasonry. In the face of mass persecution by the Christian church in the middle ages, these secret sects were vital in helping to preserve esoteric knowledge. Some say that the secrets, among other things, are concerned with the true origins of humanity, which may not be so entirely terrestrial and a product of evolution, as our present science would have us believe. We are moving now into the realms of intelligent life elsewhere in the cosmos and the possibility of contacts with earth in the past. Some say one of the secrets of the 33rd. degree is that they are in touch with intelligent life in the Sirius star system, although others dismiss this as absurd. Nevertheless, Sirius is the flaming star which appears in masonic temples.
So what knowledge might be being kept from humanity as a whole? The secrets may cover such matters as knowledge of the “life force” or “kundalini” which connects all humans to the earth and to the cosmos, often represented symbolically by the snake which ironically is incorporated in the symbol of the British Medical Association, even though the medical profession and conventional science deny this life force even exists. So too knowledge of the energy grid of the earth, sometimes known as ley lines, and how these connect with the collective consciousness of humanity. There is nothing wrong with the knowledge itself obviously – indeed it has been very important for it to be preserved especially against the background of dogmatic religions and Christianity which once sought to destroy the ancient knowledge and persecuted and killed anyone who attempted to pass it on. The danger here is people who have the knowledge, deny it to others and abuse it. This is what some people believe has happened with freemasonry - the knowledge borne by the ancient mystery schools has been taken over by those who wanted to use it for their own purposes of power and control. What was originally an honourable craft has been hijacked and perverted for sinister purposes, but only those at the very top of the pyramid of initiation are aware of what is going on and the true agenda. They know that the energy grid of the earth can just as easily be used to project negative and malevolent thoughts as positive and loving ones, and this is where dubious oaths and rituals come in, explaining the “bad vibes” some people have experienced in masonic temples.
Whilst ordinary masons of the lowest 3 degrees of craft freemasonry are forbidden to discuss politics in their lodges, at its highest levels freemasonry has strong political overtones. Note the masonic symbol of the pyramid mounted by the all seeing eye, the symbol of the structure of world freemasonry, to be found on the rear of the U.S. one dollar bill. Around it the Latin inscription - “Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum” - announcing the birth of the new ordinance of the ages or, to use contemporary terminology “new world order”, a phrase much associated with domination by a global elite and rather popular with George Bush Snr. Bush is one of a number of U.S. presidents thought to have reached the highest levels of masonic initiation, others include Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton. In his book “In God’s Name”, in which he investigated the murder of Pope John Paul 1, David Yallop illustrated how the top level masonic lodge P2, with members in South America and the Vatican as well as Italy, and powerful influences in the U.S.A. and elsewhere, was effectively running Italy. Despite the public exposures of the early ‘80’s, P2 still exists today. A shadowy politically based masonic organisation in the U.S.A., said to have some bizarre sexually orientated initiation ceremonies, is the Skull and Bones Society, based at Yale University where meetings are held in a windowless mausoleum known as “the Tomb”. Its membership is dominated by well known families of the “eastern establishment”, such as Bush, Rockefeller, Harriman, Whitney, Bundy, Vanderbilt. Bush Snr. is one of the best known present day initiates - he was apparently once accused by Pat Buchanan of running a “Skull and Bones” presidency. And like father like son…. President George W. Bush and his brother, Florida Governor Jeb Bush are both Skull and Bonesmen.
In the book “Princess Diana – the Hidden Evidence” the authors show how corporate interests and the intelligence services are also well represented in masonic secret societies. From what appear to be well placed sources they are able to say that old orders such as the Knights of Malta and the Priory of Sion have been effectively taken over by agencies such as MI6, who now guard their ancient secrets. One such secret appears to be the fact that, despite what Christianity would have us believe, Jesus married Mary Magdalen - they had a son and from him there is said to be a royal bloodline from which the Stuart monarchs of Scotland and later England can claim direct descent. This is highly significant when one appreciates that Princess Diana was of Stuart descent and that she too would almost certainly know all this. The present Stuart heir to the British throne is Prince Michael of Albany who resides out of the public eye in Edinburgh, but who is nevertheless the Scottish representative of a little known organisation called the European Council of Princes. The Windsors on the other hand are seen as usurpers, descended from the German house of Hanover, which was put in place in 1714 by powerful vested interests, who caused James II the last reigning Stuart monarch to flee in 1688. This was done for political gain and their non-intervention in British affairs and politics, was said to be the condition underpinning this arrangement – something that continues to this day. (By way of contrast Prince Michael’s views on the role of the monarch is that he/she should act as the guardian and protector of the rights of the people against the excesses of governments and those who control them.)
King and Beveridge refer to these events as the onset of masonic government, which included the setting up of privately owned central banks in Europe, and developed in corporate form especially from 1945 onwards with the creation of global mega corporations. “It is a plutocracy of the most brutal and insidious kind, in which corporate power decisively eclipses the authority of elected parliaments, and high ranking intelligence chiefs and deep cover intelligence operatives are on the boards of big companies in oil, science, technology, armaments, financial institutions, publishing and media…” This masonic structure is well illustrated in Britain today where we have an elected parliament which conducts its affairs in public. At the head of it is the government including the Cabinet, whose deliberations are not generally made public. Above that but less visible, are publicised summits such as the G8 the IMF etc. whose deliberations are strictly secret. Calling the shots are banks, big business and corporate think tanks. Then there are the little or unknown publicity shy private forums such as Bilderberg, the Tri-Lateral Commission and the European Round Table of Industrialists and finally the top levels of the secret society network which are almost completely hidden. And as if subtly to emphasise the point, we have a monarchy in which the rituals and pageantry of the Coronation and the state opening of parliament are very much masonic in nature.
