Illuminati Created the US to Advance NWO

You blind guides. You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel!  (Matthew 23:24)

Most Americans scoff at the mention of conspiracy but their country was created by Freemasonry and they don't have a clue. Freemasons drafted the Constitution and signed the Declaration of Independence.  The Indians who dumped the tea in the harbor were Masons. So was Paul Revere and his Minutemen, George Washington and most of his generals. The Marquis de Lafayette was shunned until he joined the Masons. At least 20 of the 42 US Presidents were "Brothers." 

Freemasonry is the Church of Lucifer masquerading as a fraternal mystical philanthropic order. It fronts for Illuminati (Masonic & Cabalist Jewish) central bankers who started the US as a vehicle to advance their New World Order.

In the words of Masonic elder Manley P. Hall, "we must also perfect the plan of the ages, setting up here the machinery for a world brotherhood of nations and races."  ("The Secret Destiny of America," 1944, p.3)

The Freemasons provided Americans with ideals -- civil liberties, equal opportunity and no taxation without representation -- which still are valid. But they were enticements designed to win power. As you might have noticed, these promises were not intended to be kept.

Most historians won't tell you this. In Upton Sinclair's words: "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it."

But there was one historian who did reveal the truth. Bernard Fay (1893-1978) was a Harvard-educated Frenchman. He is considered an "anti-Mason" because his 1935 book, "Revolution and Freemasonry: 1680-1800" is one of the very few to reveal the extent of Masonic participation in the US and French Revolutions.

He had access to Masonic archives in the US and Europe. His book is actually a sympathetic portrayal of Freemasonry with no references to its occult nature. However, as a Vichy Frenchman, he subsequently helped the Nazis identify Masons during World War Two. He was imprisoned after the war but pardoned in 1952 by Charles De Gaulle.


Fay explains that in the 1770's, the US consisted of 13 isolated colonies with different governments, religious affiliations, customs, racial profiles, and social and political structures. There were intense rivalries and longstanding antagonisms.
A letter took three weeks to get from Georgia to Massachusetts.

"Masonry alone undertook to lay the foundation for national unity in America because [as a secret society] it could spread throughout the colonies and work steadily and silently. It created in a limited but very prominent class of people a feeling of American unity without which... there would have been no United States." (p. 230)

"In 1760, there was no town, big or small, where Masonry had not spun its web. Everywhere it was preaching fraternity and unity." (230)

Benjamin Franklin, who was the Grand Master of a French lodge, raised millions of francs crucial to financing George Washington's army. He was the first to submit a concrete plan for military collaboration and political federation to a Congress representing all colonies. He established a chain of Masonic newspapers in all of the colonies. You can imagine where he found the money.

Fay says George Washington and his ragtag army kept the spirit of independence alive. He organized many military lodges and personally participated in their activities.   On Dec. 27,1778, he led a parade after Philadelphia was recaptured:

"His sword at his side, in full Masonic attire, and adorned with all the jewels and insignia of the Brotherhood, Washington marched at the head of a solemn procession of 300 brethren through the streets of Philadelphia to Christ Church, where a Masonic Divine Service was held. This was the greatest Masonic parade that had ever been seen in the New World."  (246)

"All the staff officers Washington trusted were Masons, and all the leading generals of the army were Masons:  Alexander Hamilton, John Marshall, James Madison, Gen. Greene, Gen. Lee, Gen. Sullivan, Lord Stirling, the two Putnams, Gen. Steuben, Montgomery, Jackson, Gist, Henry Knox and Ethan Allen were Masons.  They all gathered around their Master Mason Washington and they all met at the 'Temple of Virtue,' 'a rude structure forming an oblong square forty by sixty feet, one story in height, a single entrance which was flanked by two pillars... The atmosphere which surrounded Washington was Masonic and it may be said that the framework of his mind was Masonic." (p. 250)

Imagine if Washington had shown the same devotion to Christianity. Fay points to a "curious" degree of coordination between Masons in the US and British armies:

"It seems even likely that the unforgettable and mysterious laxness of certain English military campaigns in America, particularly those of the Howe brothers, was deliberate and due to the Masonic desire of the English general to reach a peaceful settlement..." (251)


In this context, it is pertinent to recall the confession of General Cornwallis when he surrendered to General Washington at Yorktown (Oct. 19, 1781.)

"Jonathan Williams recorded in his "Legions of Satan," (1781,) that Cornwallis revealed to Washington that "a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown."

The Crown is the Illuminati (i.e. shareholders of the Bank of England.) Cornwallis went on to explain what would seem a contradiction:

"Your churches will be used to teach the Jew's religion and in less than two hundred years, the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire. All religions will be permeated with Judaism without even being noticed by the masses, and they will all be under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry."

In a 1956 speech, Senator Joseph McCarthy reflected on these words:

"Cornwallis well knew that his military defeat was only the beginning of world catastrophe that would be universal and that unrest would continue until mind control could be accomplished through a false religion. What he predicted has come to pass. A brief sketch of American religious history and we have seen Masonry infused into every church in America with their veiled Phallic religion."


We can't see the Judeo-Masonic conspiracy because we are not accustomed to thinking in terms of hundreds of years. But the Illuminati bankers have been plotting the "new order of the ages" (featured on the US dollar along with the uncapped Masonic pyramid) for thousands of years.

We may have the pleasure and pain of witnessing their design come to fruition. As we do, it is worth remembering that Americans, in fact all peoples, have allowed themselves to be duped.

Our role is analogous with that of the French nobles who collaborated in the French Revolution and then were slaughtered. Fay writes: "All these nobles did not hesitate to side with the revolutionary party, even though it was to cost them their rank, their estates and their lives." (p. 287) 

In the words of a speaker at a secret B'nai Brith meeting in Paris in 1936:

"Yet it remains our secret that those Gentiles who betray their own and most precious interests, by joining us in our plot should never know that these associations are of our creation and that they serve our purpose...

"One of the many triumphs of our Freemasonry is that those Gentiles who become members of our Lodges, should never suspect that we are using them to build their own jails, upon whose terraces we shall erect the throne of our Universal King of Israel; and should never know that we are commanding them to forge the chains of their own servility to our future King of the World."

Comments for "Illuminati Created the US to Advance NWO"

Mark said (April 7, 2010):

Great article again. I've followed your writings off an on for many years now, and have also spent the better part of the last fifteen years discovering the roots of Masonry, Illuminati and their links to the historical revolutions and Great Wars. That initially began with my own search of my ancestor's roles in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, as I was an avid history buff with those time periods. Such as with my relative Edward Preble ( ), Commodore of the USS Constitution during the Barbary Pirate Wars, who bombed Tripoli in 1803 with a US Navy Fleet under orders from Thomas Jefferson. The ship still sits here in Boston Harbor, and in my hometown of Portland, ME there is the old Fort Preble and many streets named to him. The Prebles were a very wealthy family migrating as seafaring merchants and Navy Men from Kent County, England to Massachusetts in the early 1600's. Edward Preble's portrait hangs in Faneuil Hall alongside many busts and paintings of George Washington, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and many more... the Boston area Masonic Brotherhood who ignited their "revolution" with the Tea Party and Bunker Hill.. Boston is so full of history including hints to the Masonic roots and connections to the Revolutions in both the Colonies and later in France.

Walking thru the GW Masonic Memorial on many a visit, its easy to see that they aren't trying to hide themselves at all from us... its all in plain view, but at the same time we are looking at cryptic messages and hidden meanings in the architecture. We don't have, as ordinary 'students' who aren't in the ranks of Masonry the true "Rosetta Stone" to decipher all that is there. I've read "Morals and Dogma" or as much as I can stomach of Albert Pike, and have learned that the entire Civil War was just as much a ruse as the Revolutionay War. Almost nothing we are taugh in our history books ever matches up to the actual truth.

One thing that I am never sure of or clear on, because I've also read so many Christian author's perspectives on George Washington... is whether or not the original Masons such as Washington were actually Illuminati too. Thats something I can't quite grasp. The gavel for their proceedings in the Memorial is made from an Olive Branch from the Garden of Gethsemane, and the Stone cut from blocks of the original Solomon's Temple. Clearly there is either a nostalgic connection to Christ himself one way or another. And there is enough evidence in the "works" of many Masons to assume that they had also a belief in Christianity.. whether it was a more Gnostic bastardized version or not.

I do have a difficult time believing that Washington was an Occultist Satanist. I've read more books and the many prayers he wrote of his own to suggest he was much more heavily involved in Christian belief systems. In a world of information and disinformation both seemingly controlled and spread by the Illuminati/Masons... it can be more than a 'maze' to try to worm your way thru and decide for yourself. I definitely agree with many of the historic facts cited in your article and have read and visited enough of the historic sites to know for sure.. that all Washington's Generals were Masons... like Henry Light Horse Lee... his superb cavalry General.. and the father of Robert E. Lee... who followed in his father's Masonic footsteps...these men were seemingly following the "Grand Architect" and some long thought out plan for something in the future... now who and what is directing these people over the millennia is my question....

John said (March 31, 2010):

Masonry is definitely occultic, no doubt about it. I have been in their temples and have read many of their books. Manly Hall and Albert Pike both declare the Satanic connection in the books they have written. Lost Keys of Freemasonry (Hall) and Morals and Dogma (Pike) are some the sources individuals can look into. Pike and Hall were both high ranking masons.

Mike said (March 30, 2010):

As I read some of the responses, I have to chuckle a little because I think of cognitive dissonance. The “Patriot movement”, the “Truthers” and the various and sundry group who believe that our Constitution and Bill of Rights are the end-all, be-all of our existence and the key to our liberty as humans are subtly deceived.

The State is nothing less than a Beast that consumes and enslaves at will. The Constitution…any countries constitution is only as good as the Establishment who drafts it and for as long as they need it. In our case, it kept the barnyard in an orderly fashion until now and the pigs that are “more equal than others” have by natural selection risen to the top and are now eliminating any resemblance of armed opposition (the militia busts in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan of late)…in spite of the 2nd Amendment. The “rules” were meant for the “lesser equal pigs” to follow.

Richie said (March 30, 2010):

fear that you are overlooking a few important facts:

A)Although it is true that many of our Founders were involved in Freemasonry, it is also true that Freemasonry in their day was NOT yet infiltrated by the Illuminati. -The Illuminati only having been recently formed itself, in Germany, had not yet had sufficient time to infilltrate any other group.

B)The precepts of our Constitution- namely the Bill Of Rights, has been the single biggest hinderance to the Illuminatti and their NWO. If it had not been for the foresight of our Founders and their Biblical principles, the NWO would have been established long ago, already. It is only now, after over a century of nefarious and covert work by the Illuminati and Zionists, that the force of that Bill Of Rights has been mitigated, and they are able to proceed with their NWO. America is basically the last nation of the world which must fall, in order for them to errect their evil and oppressive worldwide government- and we are seeing that fall now, before our eyes.

What the Founders bestowed upon us, has probably delayed the implementation of the NWO by 100 years, and thus has been of supreme benefit to you and I and all who have lived here during the last century.

I think it would be more accurate to say that the US was created for noble purposes, but both her political processes and people were taken over by Illuminati infiltrators, which have been working here for over 150 years to bring us to the point where we now are.

Brandon said (March 30, 2010):

I read your latest article with great interest. It both saddens me and confirms suspicions I've had for a while. I have long considered myself an American patriot with a love for my country. Now it is hard to be so enthusiastic when its apparent that even the American flag has Masonic stars upon it. That said, I have found that there is much to admire about the Founders. A large number of the original Constitutional Convention attendees were Christians. However, the "Enlightenment" undertones of America's founding are unmistakable.

Have America's founders no decent or positive features to recommend them? Were they all possessed of evil? For that matter, is there anything to be "patriotic" about if it's all a big fraud?

I think one of the worst aspects of the American founding was the enshrinement of the Masonic conception of "liberty" as an all consuming ideal. This eventually devolved into the narcissistic solipsism found today with everyone throwing tantrums about "rights" and whatnot.



Most Masons are dupes, so it's quite possible that many of America's founding fathers had admirable qualities and were sincere.


Jack said (March 30, 2010):

Any one who doubts this story can also read Sir Francis Bacon's "New Atlantis." The book was written long ago and I was told personally by an insider that this book explains it all. America is the New Atlantis. The New World is the staging ground of the Novus Ordo Seclorum. "New World Order" refers to world government version 3.0 after the League of Nations and the United Nations. We are the product of the Age of Enlightenment. Bacon was a master Illuminist/Rosicrucian, a scholar of the highest order and the existence of our current scientific priesthood is largely due to his incredible influence.

"Knowledge is power" is a very Baconian sentiment which reflects how the ideals of our society were shaped by humanistic principles whereby we can become as gods through our own effort and enquiry into the nature of all things.

Look around at the great capital cities in the United States including the District of the goddess Columbia. You will find countless effigies and monuments to ancient gods, goddesses and divine principles which are never explained in the course of our schooling. We are all taught to worship our Illuminati empire without understanding it. There is an excellent, professionally produced documentary about America, the New Atlantis available on youtube America is as Christian as a Luciferian empire could be.

Dick said (March 30, 2010):

Your recent article contains a historical mistruth by Bernard Fay.
Alexander Hamilton was emphatically not a freemason. There was a famous mason named Alexander Hamilton, an unrelated Brit who lived
years later.

Unlike the other masons in that list, Hamilton's influence on the US Constitution is profound, especially in Article I, Section 8,
which contains the credit, commercial and monetary policies, and the "General Welfare" clause which is much ignored by today's

The Declaration of Independence is in some ways a "masonic"document, but I do not think it's fair to accuse the Constitution of the same. The fight for the Constitution (against the Articles
of Confederation) was a fight against the Masonic principles of the southern planters (ie "liberty" for us, slavery for you), and for
the Republican principles of anti-masons like Hamilton, John Quincy Adams and Abraham Lincoln.




Google AH and Freemasons. Masonic sites claim him.


Nader said (March 30, 2010):

I think I asked you this question before and I think you should address it in order to strengthen your view of the freemasonic founding of America.

My question is (was) regarding the contradiction between the fact that the founding fathers, such as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, were outspoken opponents of central banking. Thomas Jefferson said that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies and also claimed that the concept of Central Banking violated the original consitution of the United States. Benjamin Franklin supposedly warned people that the 'Jews' would end up indebting the people of the United States (but I'm not sure if his tirade against the Jews was genuine or a forgery).

Also, you need to explain why the US, being founded by freemasonry and all, was so resistant to establishing central banks in the 1800s.

You did suggest once that the founding fathers could have been sincere or well-meaning freemasons. I guess it could also be argued that their opposition was fake and intended to garner support for the American cause.

Don't these contradictions warrant some insights?



I believe Hitler was the arch foe of central bankers yet they put him into power. Phony opposition is how they operate.

As for Franklin and the Jews, the Illuminati (Masonic Jews and Gentiles- Satanists) want to off
load blame on Jews in general.

Great article!
Once one reads Waters Flowing Eastward, one will shudder at how far along the plan is.

Albert said (March 30, 2010):

I am starting to believe this because behind every evil door....theres a 33 degree Free Mason. These I believe are the trainees to be "Illuminated". There is a video I saw the other day to support this and I will post it below. Now these Illuminated beings....have some sort of relationship or host inter dimensional entities....

13 Masonic Secrets

Peter said (March 30, 2010):

I have just finished reading your article entitled, "Illuminati Created the US to Advance NWO",
and I want to ask you to kindly including excerpts from the article below in the comment section.

It is the Prophesy of Our Lady of Success. The Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of God appeared
to a Spanish Nun, Mother Maria de Torres Jesus in Quito, Ecuador, some 400 years ago. During
many of her apparitions to this Spanish Nun, she prophesied that in the middle of the 20th Century,
the cult of Freemasonry will over take all governments of the world.

The Roman Catholic Church has warned of the Freemasons since the days of the French Revolution,
a revolution that was engineered by the Freemasons, beginning with the destruction of the French
Catholic Monarchy and the Social Kingship of Christ. More Freemasonry revolutions to followed in
Mexico resulting in the persecution of Priests and Nuns in what is called the Cristeros, the martyrdom
of Mexican Catholics and the death of the true Roman Catholic Church in Mexico. Again, the Freemasons
also overtly took over Portugal culminating with the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima,

Here is where you can find this article:
I am providing some excerpts as follows:

Our Lady prophesied that at the end of the 19th Century and especially in the 20th Century that Satan would reign almost completely by the means of the Masonic sect.

Robert said (March 30, 2010):

I always read with great interest arguments that the United States, and, indeed, all revolutions, are Masonic creations. (I believe so, too.) But it's one of the hardest sells to moderns, who have internalized the Masonic beliefs to a considerable extent: the Church and the monarchs were the bad guys, the Enlightenment and the (Masonic) revolutions were the products of a more enlightened era. How an examination of the American and French Revolutions can be undertaken without a serious look at the influence of the Masons is mind-boggling. But it's getting harder and harder to gloss over.

Will said (March 30, 2010):

The masonic philanthropic facade qualifies it as a satanic organization.

To quote Fritz Springmeier's "The Illuminati Formula to Create a...Mind Controlled Slave":

"...high level Satanism is Gnosticism which requires that "the Force" of these great satanic magicians be balanced. In other words, in high level Satanism your good deeds must balance your evil deeds. People do not realize that unless someone does "good" deeds they cannot be a high level Satanist. That is why some of the greatest philanthropists are also our leading national satanists, To see Billy Graham do something commendable does not disqualify him from satanism. In fact, it is a requirement if he’s been part of the Illuminati..."

This is why Isaiah says that "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags" and why Paul clarifies that we are saved by faith in Yasha'yah (aka Jesus Christ) not by works. Good works are to be a sign of our faith in Christ, not a front for behind-the-scenes satanic activity.
