Rule Britannia: Magick in Service to The Crown

It was perhaps the high point for Germany in World War II. France lay prostrate under the boot of the German war machine. The only thing that stood between England and Germany was the Royal Air Force. Or so it seemed.
We know what traditional history books tell us. The Royal Air
Force withstood the repeated savagery of the German Luftwaffe and Hitler
grew increasingly restive with the idea of an amphibious assault.
The reality, of course, is more complex. The British utilized the forces of
occult technology--of Magick--and it would not be the first time the
English Crown had availed itself of the power of its most infamous
The British Crown, the shareholders of the Bank of England, overlapping with the Illuminati, are Satanists. It stands to reason their Intelligence services would use witchcraft to further their ends. The Lion's share of the world's evil originates from this source.
In 1986, book called "Lammas Night", strictly fictional of course, suggested that a group of witches and warlocks had gathered at sacred sites during England's most desperate hours to perform ceremonial magick, with the object of keeping Hitler from invading England by filling his head with confusion and trepidation over the amphibious assault known as "Operation Sea Lion."
Many people have congratulated the author, Katherine Kurtz, on
her realistic portrayal of this "fictional" event. She was applauded
for creating vibrant and finely drawn characters. The
reason this "fictional" event had such a ring of truth is because such
ceremonies actually did occur throughout England.
According to author Gerald Suster, in his book "Hitler: The Occult Messiah", quoting English magician Gerald Gardner, "Witches cast spells to stop Hitler from landing after France fell. They met, raised the great cone of power, and directed the thought at Hitler's brain: 'You cannot cross the sea. You cannot cross the sea. Not able to come. Not able to come.' ... I am not saying they stopped Hitler. All I say is that I saw a very interesting ceremony performed with the intention of putting a certain idea into his mind and this was repeated several time afterward; and though all the invasion barges were ready, the fact was that Hitler never even tried to come."
Gardner may have been referring to the work of Dion Fortune, author of the book "The Magical Battle of Britain." Fortune was the head of the Society of The Inner Light. When Germany invaded and defeated Poland in a matter of days, Fortune, according to a review of this book, "... initiated a series of magical programmes designed to thwart the expansionist intentions of the Third Reich."
THE SPANISH ARMADA
This was not the first time England used applied magick to turn the tides of history. Perhaps the first recorded event is when England faced the Great Spanish Armada in 1588.
In 1579, King Philip II of Spain, at the urging of the Vatican, prepared to invade England. Unbeknownst to Philip II, however, The Queen of England, Elizabeth I, had employed two occult technicians (magicians) to continue and expand England's reign on the high seas. These two magicians were Sir Edward Kelly and Dr. John Dee.
With the blessings and the facilities of the English Crown, Kelly and Dee performed numerous magickal workings, called skryings, which allowed Dee and Kelly direct communication with angelic beings. This process of drawing magickal sigils and talismans was accomplished by using a "shewstone." Through this stone, said to have been given to Dr. Dee by the angel Uriel, John Dee was able to construct an angelic language with its own alphabet, which he called Enochian. Through using this angelic symbolic language, Dee and Kelly, according to legend, were able to construct and consecrate talismans specifically designed to create a mighty storm to blast and sink the Spanish Armada, and scatter it into disarray.
Indeed, a mighty storm did sink or damage a
large portion of the Spanish Armada before the remainder made its way
back to Spain. But what most historians and students of history do not
know was that there were actually THREE attempts by Spain's Armada to
engage the English Navy and invade England, and each time, a huge storm
unexpectedly arose, sank and scattered a significant number of the
invading Spanish fleet.
Rumors persist that Dr. John Dee and Sir Edward Kelly applied their Enochian ceremonial magick, and each time the forces of Nature arose at their command to save England from certain defeat.
Dr. Dee and Sir Edward Kelly traveled extensively for the crown,
and Dr. Dee reported to Sir Francis Walsingham, Spymaster to Elizabeth
the First. Dee was also reputedly the original double O Seven (007), as
Dee signed his reports to Walsingham with two circles, representing
eyes, above which he drew the mathematical sign of the square root,
which appeared to be the number 7, or together, 007! Yet there is even
more to this story, for Aleister Crowley claimed, according to John
Symmonds in his book, "The Great Beast", that one of Crowley's past incarnations
was Sir Edward Kelley, the skryer of the "shew stone" who helped Dr. Dee
formulate the powerful Enochian magickal language.
JAMES BOND AND ALEISTER CROWLEY
Approximately four hundred years later, Ian Fleming, future author of James Bond (007) who was in the employee of British Intelligence at the time, and Aleister Crowley were summoned by Winston Churchill to formulate a magickal strategy against Hitler and Germany. According to a March 4, 2008 article in the British newspaper, "The Telegraph", Crowley decided to construct an occult ceremonial ritual in the Ashdown forests. This necessitated clearing a circle along with a path of trees leading to the circle. Ritual ceremonies were conducted designed to lure Rudolph Hess to England by leaking word of these ceremonies to the Romanian Embassy, and thence to Germany.
The purpose of these ceremonies were designed to convince Hess that there was a genuine Peace Party in Britain, led by the Duke of Hamilton, reputed leader of the Cliveden Set, a loose assemblage of upper class nobility supposedly sympathetic to an alliance between England and Germany. It was into this strange milieu that Hess launched his solo peace mission. The result of this subterfuge was that England was able to flush out her Nazi sympathizers and neutralize them, while parading a captured Hess, the Number Two man of the Nazi Machine, as a military captive. According to the article: "The propitiousness of the 11th of May as a day for Hess to travel was carefully rehearsed into the rituals and Crowley made a genuine attempt to use them to ensnare their quarry by magic."
Apparently, the was not the first time that Aleister Crowley had been asked to contribute his unique talents to the English war effort. According to author Gerald Suster, in his book, "The Legacy of the Beast", Crowley was invited to meet the director of British Naval Intelligence at the very beginning of WWII. Suster states: "Crowley claimed that he advocated the use of two magickal signs which were to boost British morale and which were frequently used by Winston Churchill: the 'V' sign, which in magickal terms is the counter to the Swastika, and the 'Thumbs Up', the sign of the phallus and Victory, which was published in a pamphlet of Crowley poetry during the most desperate days of 1940 and whose use spread throughout the Nation."
Crafting these magickal signs for the masses to be used against
Hitler and the Third Reich may not have been Crowley's only
contributions to England's WWII war effort, as British Intelligence may
also have used Crowley as Churchill's double on more than one occasion.

Crowley impersonating Winston Churchill. The resemblance is
Yet for all his theatrics, without a doubt Aleister Crowley's greatest war time service to The English Crown occurred during World War I. Crowley was in New York, America had not yet entered the war, and the war was not going well for England and her allies. Various subterfuges had been tried and failed to lure America into the conflict.
Crowley decided to become a contributor to the English language German newspaper based in New York, called "The Fatherland" after convincing its editor, George Sylvester Viereck, that he (Crowley) was actually Irish and therefore a foe of England and friend of Germany.
Writing under various pen names, Crowley wrote the article that may have actually resulted in the sinking of the British passenger liner, 'The Lusitania' by a German submarine, when he promoted, in the most extreme and hyperbolic ravings, his case for Germany to conduct Unrestricted Submarine Warfare. In the book, "The Legend of Aleister Crowley" by P. R. Stephenson and Israel Regardie, they quote Crowley as stating: " I advocated.... 'Unrestricted Submarine Warfare,' secretly calculating (rightly so, as time showed) that so outrageous a violation of all law and human decency would be the LAST STRAW and force America to come in on our side."
There was no doubt in Crowley's mind that his writing had been the deciding factor. He had written an earlier article in "The Fatherland" called "The Future of the Submarine" which described this new underwater warship as the future of ocean warfare. Now, his article entitled "Unrestricted Submarine Warfare" advocating the unrestrained use of such underwater warships, had been published in "The Fatherland" and undoubtedly read in Germany. As Crowley wrote in his autobiography, "The Confessions of Aleister Crowley" upon meeting secretly with a member of the British Embassy in New York, he waved a copy of the article and eagerly proclaimed: "The damned fools have printed it; and it's going to turn the trick."
On May 7, 1915, The Lusitania was struck by one torpedo from the German submarine U-20, and sank in 18 minutes, taking 1,198 of the 1,959 lives aboard with her. Her sinking caused an international furor, and because of the substantial loss of American lives, played a pivotal role in the entry of the United States on the side of England and her allies.
As a Satanist, the loss of life as a result of this act was of no consequence to Crowley, who had so passionately advocated and now celebrated the result of his magickal Will upon the Earth.
The irony, of course, is that "The Great Beast" may very well have succeeded in convincing the German Navy, with his printed tirade advocating Unrestricted Submarine Warfare, to commit the very act which would seal the fate of the German Nation and lead it to defeat in World War I.
Aleister Crowley's monicker for Great Britain was "perfidious Albion." It refers to the fact, according to Crowley, that the most common characteristic of the English upper class is betrayal, "double-dealing" and hypocrisy. By this standard, what "the Crown" did to Germany would be par for their course of conduct. They are Satanists, after all.
