Masonic Blackmail Behind Murdoch Scandal?

"My hunch is that, with police collaboration, Murdoch and his newspaper ran an intelligence gathering operation designed to blackmail England's Masonic elite and ensure they toe the line. "

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Clearly there is a lot more to the Murdoch scandal than we have been told.

You don't shutter a 167-year-old newspaper, the largest English-language weekly in the world, just because some reporters were overzealous in their quest for news.

If the newspaper had only hacked the phones of Milly Dowler and the 9-11 victims' families, I doubt we would be hearing about this.

The newspaper hacked the phones, computers, bank accounts, phone and medical records of leading members of the Illuminati establishment, Governors of the Bank of England,  the royal family,  and politicians and their wives such as
Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Jack Straw, Peter Mandelson and Alastair Campbell.

My hunch is that, with police collaboration, Murdoch and his newspaper ran an intelligence gathering operation designed to blackmail England's Masonic elite and ensure they toe the line.

The hacking has been common knowledge for more than a dozen years, when The Guardian exposed it in 1999. Remember when Prince Charles was recorded in 1989 saying he envied Camilla's tampon? Nothing was done because this was the way power was organized.

In 2003, News of the World Editor Rebekah Brooks admitted to a parliamentary committee that they had paid police for information and intended to continue. This has been public knowledge for some time!

But the times are changing. Something went wrong. Perhaps Murdoch and his cohorts overstepped their bounds. Perhaps they started to monitor the wrong people. Perhaps they got too big for their britches.

I don't know the reason but the time had come to take Murdoch down and reorganize the system of blackmail in England.

It was time to clean house, not just at the newspaper but also at Scotland Yard. It remains to be seen how deeply the Prime Minister David Cameron is involved.

These are dangerous times for Illuminati collaborators. No one is safe from swift demotion: Dominique Strauss-Khan, Muammar Gaddafi, Hosni Mubarak, and now even Rupert Murdoch.


Commentators who bemoan pervasive official corruption refuse to address the underlying cause. Our important institutions all have been infiltrated and subverted by a satanic cult, Freemasonry.

This ancient secret society is dedicated to undermining our institutions and values, and folding every country into a tyrannical world government controlled by its sponsors, the Rothschild central banking cartel.

In his book "The Brotherhood," Stephen Knight showed how Masons secretly control every aspect of British society. There are 500,000 Masons in England. Lodges are associated with every local government, police, bank, military unit, hospital, university, church, court and of course Westminster. What passes for politics is basically members of the same Lodge  contending for office to decide how to enact the Masonic agenda. Knight documents how Masons give each other preferment in hiring, promotion and business. Non-Masons are continually hassled.   It is no understatement to say that the UK is a Masonic tyranny.

Look at the picture of former Scotland Yard Chief Sir Paul Stephenson (above.) He resigned because he was implicated in the scandal. Look at the checkerboard symbol on his hat, worn by every British constable. It is  Masonic.

What chance does a society have when its leadership and law enforcement have gone over to the dark side, and the people are too naive and docile to notice?  

Jonathan-Rees-007.jpgJONATHAN REES

Last month, The Guardian reported that private investigator Jonathan Rees earned $225,000 a year doing Murdoch's dirty work:

"Years ago, Jonathan Rees became a Freemason. According to journalists and investigators who worked with him, he then exploited his link with the lodges to meet masonic police officers who illegally sold him information which he peddled to Fleet Street.

"As one of Britain's most prolific merchants of secrets, Rees expanded his network of sources by recruiting as his business partner Sid Fillery, a detective sergeant from the Metropolitan Police. Fillery added more officers to their network. Rees also boasted of recruiting corrupt Customs officers, a corrupt VAT inspector and two corrupt bank employees.

"... The Guardian has confirmed that Rees reinforced his official contacts with two specialist 'blaggers' who would telephone the Inland Revenue, the DVLA, banks and phone companies and trick them into handing over private data.

"...An investigator who worked for Rees claims he was also occasionally commissioning burglaries of public figures to steal material for newspapers. Southern Investigations has previously been implicated in handling paperwork that was stolen by a professional burglar from the safe of Paddy Ashdown's lawyer, when Ashdown was leader of the Liberal Democrats. The paperwork, which was eventually obtained by the News of the World, recorded Ashdown discussing his fears that newspapers might expose an affair with his secretary.

"...Targeting the Bank of England, Rees is believed to have earned thousands of pounds by penetrating the past or present mortgage accounts of the then governor, Eddie George; his deputy, Mervyn King, who is now governor; and half-a-dozen other members of the Monetary Policy Committee.

"Rees carried out his trade for years. His career as a pedlar of privacy stretches back into the 1990s, when he worked assiduously for the Daily Mirror, the Sunday Mirror and the News of the World."


Remember Dr. David Kelly who was murdered in 2003 for blowing the whistle on Tony Blair and the trumped-up reasons for going into Iraq?

Now another whistle blower, Sean Hoare, has been murdered. Hoare, a former News of the World columnist and friend of Editor Andy Coulson, exposed the hacking scandal. He said there was  "more to come...this is not going to go away."

He also feared the "government" would try to murder him. Are we supposed to believe the police who say his death is "not being treated as suspicious?"

Murdoch's British newspapers account for less than two percent of Newscorp revenues. Obviously their real purpose was political power, prestige and blackmail.   

We are dealing with internal Masonic politics here, a system of blackmail intended to keep the elite in line. All that remains is the reason why the kingpins, presumably the Rothschilds, pulled the plug on it, and on their trusted lieutenant, Rupert Murdoch.

It appears that the Illuminati are more enslaved than we are. That is the final irony.

Loren said (July 22, 2011):

Very much enjoyed your article on Murdoch and The Hackers. Interesting that this on-going activity was tolerated in England for over a decade and then, seemingly overnight, it explodes!

I am going only on my intuition here, but I think the key to this entire affair revolves around the phone hacking of the missing young girl who, I believe, was 12 or 13 at the time of her disappearance. In her particular case, and in no others of which I am aware, not only were messages "hacked".... but messages were ERASED!

Now I can understand the "hacking" and "eavesdropping" aspect of this operation. But the destruction of messages on a cell phone of a girl in a murder case??? This strongly suggests, to my mind, that she may have been yet another victim -- a "sacrificial" victim to the Illuminati, and the higher ups in the organization.

Matthew said (July 21, 2011):

Your article on Murdoch and masonry was great food for thought.

Interestingly I just finished re-reading Pope Leo XIII's letter to the world against Freemasonry in 1884. Paragraph 27 read:

Now, from the disturbing errors which We have described the greatest dangers to States are to be feared. For, the fear of God and reverence for divine laws being taken away, the authority of rulers despised, sedition permitted and approved, and the popular passions urged on to lawlessness, with no restraint save that of punishment, a change and overthrow of all things will necessarily follow. Yea, this change and overthrow is deliberately planned and put forward by many associations of communists and socialists; and to their undertakings the sect of Freemasons is not hostile, but greatly favours their designs, and holds in common with them their chief opinions. And if these men do not at once and everywhere endeavour to carry out their extreme views, it is not to be attributed to their teaching and their will, but to the virtue of that divine religion which cannot be destroyed; and also because the sounder part of men, refusing to be enslaved to secret societies, vigorously resist their insane attempts.

The earlier paragraphs of the letter were about masonry's purposeful attempts to undermine marriage and their support of communism.

You can still find the whole article at the Vatican website:

xcellent article, you have a talent for what David Icke calls, "joining the dots."
Another yet to be explained death happened just before this crisis erupted
perhaps this was off the radar in USA.

Another "unexplained" incident was the assault on Murdock during his interview by Parliamentarians.
I would be surprised if James Bond got that close to Murdock in such surroundings without collaboration from the police, MI5 etc.
Why wasn't Murdock killed? Potentially he could be a whistle blower also. So there is a motive for termination.

A peculiarity of British culture is that if you want to humiliate someone, you push a custard pie in their face. It's the ultimate humiliation.
However over the years this has spawned many variations. This assault on Murdock is such a variation, foam instead of the traditional pie.
In the East the ultimate humiliation is to beat someone with shoes.

As Krishna explains in Bhagavad-gita Chapter 2, verse 34
"for one who has been honored, dishonor is worse than death."

For whatever reason we are seeing that some of these trusted lieutenants of the Ruling Elite are being publicly humiliated - which for them, is worse than death.

hmmm Could this also connect to the child molesting and child sex rings that majorly prevalent in the UK ?

Did someone actually find the evidence ( i.e. the holly griegs case ) needed to bring these scumbag satanists down ? Did or was Murdock and company digging to deep in these cases and finaly hit pay dirt ???

Come on now, lets expose these maggots !

Debra said (July 20, 2011):

Rupert Murdoch, quite the big shot, is head of the "sensationalist" division of the Rothschild media empire though he bought divisions with the lesser tabloid-like news, The Wall Street Journal, etc... Murdoch turned it into a "fun" to read market able to make the common people interested in stocks. Murdoch is associated with a "tabloid" approach to the Rothschild media for quick, sensationalism turning whatever he touches into easy, quick viewing, not boring as reports prior to his intervention.

The Illuminati need to do something to counteract public awareness of what is really happening and this is and will be one more sensational news story the likes of what Murdoch and pals do. Exploitation is the common means of covering-up truth no matter how bizarre this tactic seems.

The higher the crime, the higher (worldly stature) a person is needed to be made an example with, but what is viewed as a "crime" varies, and for the most part the public cannot be certain anymore. The few that are, are in a dangerous position reporting what is Truth in the enemy's news territory.

Edgar said (July 20, 2011):

From about 2010 onward there has been a widening discussion wether the general plan for world dictatorship can only fulfill its loftiest plans in the absence of any super-power, now that the cold war masquerade had ended. If the US thus needs to be destroyed as the last menace to the decentralised NWO, then all its most intimate and technologically inter-connected allies should also go. This is a vast game with extremely high risks. Militaries and Secret Services do have some kind of home base - and were it on Mars. When the last super-power implodes, they could retreat into just the national boundaries they were so actively trying to destroy. The financial and monetary implosion is worming its way through the ex-Gatt-countries, now WTO-countries. As Rupert, which in German is a name for Beelzebub, M. is supposedly Israeli, maybe his troubles only presage the splitting of the US-Israel alliance, as one of the chees pieces is sacrificed for the overriding agenda.

Such a society has no chance. They are doomed to slavery and or extinction. I suspect A.J. Fosdyke would concurr with my statement and add that they would wear their chains or go to their deaths obediently and unwilling to believe that their masters and executioners have any evil intent what so ever.

Doug said (July 20, 2011):

Great article. Your skill is to accurately interpret the sometimes limited information we ARE given, combine the same with a wide knowledge base... and then fearlessly go for the jugular in your summaries and conclusions. Such skill means that on most issues you come closest to the truth in a welter of information overload and speculation elsewhere.

Re the one area you concede we do not have sufficient info, namely motivation for Murdoch's public crucifixion, perhaps it is because in recent months a couple of interviewers and guests on Fox TV news channels were allowed to open the door just a fraction to concede the remote possibility that alternative explanations for 911 may exist and that the 911truthers may not be entirely insane? Could this be the elite's way of showing all other media players that such door is most emphatically closed?

Henrique said (July 20, 2011):

This is just the carnival of another little showdown between th Fabian Socialist "Left Hand" wing vs. the Fascist "Right Hand" wing in the media battlefield. Like Soros's "Media Matters" in America openly stating that they "will infiltrate and destroy from inside" Fox News. Two faces of the same monster sparring, and the useful idiots involved being smashed. We need to rebuild philosophy, destroy science-worship and retake control of our societies. These events at least give us more time - let them devour each other!!

Irish Dan said (July 19, 2011):

I would sure like to know the real story behind the decision to pull
Murdoc's plug. One would think that he served the NWO and served it well. The way people are being thrown overboard, goodness only knows what else will inadvertently get out. As the old saying goes, " when thieves fall out, honest men prosper"

Well let's hope truth prospers in this saga however limited and
however briefly !

Dan said (July 19, 2011):

Highly convenient 'unexplained' death of muckraker whistleblower with the unfortunate, yet oddly allegorical name of "Hoare". 47 year old robust man found dead. Today the coroner's office reported the post-mortem revealed there was no evidence that anyone else was involved in the death." Oh, they still don't know the cause of death - all they know for sure is that it's "not suspicious".

That's worthy of Monty Python.

Tony said (July 19, 2011):

I agree there is much more to this Murdoch scandal and hoping you discover/distill more information about it.
The Rothschild family via tools like Albert Pike and Andrew Weishaupt has thoroughly infiltrated and taken over the head of the masonry upper levels and although I am open to finding those roles reversed...or a new player beyond the Rothschild family pulling the strings...have seen no evidence of it so far.
Jesus turned down the offer of Satan to rule the world (note how he did not refute Satan's claim to power...just the offer)...but the Rothschild family sure looks like they took the deal.

I am afraid that Murdoch is being slapped in order to make sure that Obama can complete whatever they have on his plate (he is the most servile president the Rothschild's have had in a while)...and more and more it is looking like the 3rd world war that Albert Pike predicted almost a century and a half ago to pit Zionism (misled Jews and Christians) against Islam to usher in the age of Satan.....but if this is true, then the fact that God reigns is even that much greater and satanic/rothschild schemes are nothing in the end.
