CHICAGO—Honor, service and brotherhood. These are just a few of the principles Black men representing Masonic jurisdictions strive to embody in their day to day lives. Members of various lodges recently bestowed the highest honors, accolades and respect upon the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam during a special gathering at the Palace, home of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
These are the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a Mason, explained Tony Hawkins of John G. Jones Grand Lodge of California Ancient Free and Accepted Masons.
“Knowing his works, knowing what he has done for the African American community or the Black community in particular here in the United States, this should have been done a long time ago but by the grace of Allah we’re here today,” said Mr. Hawkins.
Masons are a fraternal order or society that grew out of men that worked as stone masons and builders in the 17th and 18th century. It is a society steeped heavily in traditions, symbolism, core beliefs and doctrines. However, a Black man named Prince Hall from Barbados founded a lodge around 1784 when Blacks were not allowed or permitted in White lodges.
Photos from the solemn and unprecedented Sept. 28 gathering soon began circulating on social media.
“This has been a great day for me as a Mason and all the Brothers in this picture, not only did we meet with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, we broke bread with him as well,” said Calvin D. Sanders via Facebook.
Rashad Muhammad of South Carolina, Amzi Muhammad of Chicago and Marcus 2X Hill of Baltimore are members of the Nation of Islam and are also Masons. The men were particularly touched to honor the Minister. The Minister was presented with dozens of awards, plaques, certificates and Masonic re..
Willam Morgan was a brickmason in Batavia, New York. The people in Batavia did not have the most postive view of Morgan. He was often looked at as a uneducated, shrew, and carless man. Often arrested for his debuts and then had to be bailed out by masonic charity. It is hard to say if Morgan was actually a mason or not. Some believe he had become a mason at the lodge in Rochester and others belive he only attended meeting as an imposter, pretending to be somone he wasnt in order to gain passage into the very private meetings. Once it became known that Morgan might not actually be a member the Freemasons started to look for Morgan to ensure he no longer attended meetings. At this same time Morgan annouced that he was going to publish a book exposing the freemasons and tell the world all about their rituals, secrets, and procedures. Morgan did this very publically and did not shy away from talking about the book her was writing in public to friends and even strangers at the local bar. Not too long after Morgan annouced he was writing a book he was arrested for some little charge that is so insignificant it is unknown. After he was released it is said he left in a coach with several other men. From there Morgan is believed to have been taken to Fort Niagara. This is where Morgan was allegedly murdered and then dumped into Lake Ontario.
President Donald Trump, in a midsummer phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, asked him to look into why that country’s top prosecutor apparently had ended an investigation of the business dealings of Joe Biden’s son, who served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.
“(Then-Vice President Joe) Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it, It sounds horrible to me,” Trump told Zelenskiy during the 30-minute July 25 phone call.
A transcript of the call was made public Wednesday by the Trump administration under pressure from Democrats who have launched a formal impeachment inquiry to determine whether the president sought the help of a foreign leader to boost his campaign.

The president's phone call — made from the White House residence to Zelenskiy — began with Trump congratulating Zelenskiy on his election victory.
Later, Trump veers into the Biden issue.
"I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down, which is really unfair,” Trump says on the call, according to the transcript.
THE MASONIC REVIEW. - 1853
A correspondent writes to us for information relative to the words which are placed at the head of this article. He says: "In the Old Charges I find the following expression: 'A Mason is obliged by his tenure to obey the moral law; and if he rightly understands the Royal art, he will never be a stupid Atheist, nor, an irreligious libertine.' Now the word 'libertine' is defined as a man of licentious habits of life, especially in relation to the other sex, and the epithet 'irreligious' seems therefore to be tautological in the sentence, while there seems to be some confusion of thought in thus closely connecting libertinism of conduct with Athesim in belief. Can you explain the difficulty?"
The only difficulty arises from the excusable error of our correspondent in looking at the modern, and not at the antiquated meaning of "libertine." A libertine now signifies, it is true, a profligate and licentious person, but originally it meant a freethinker, or Deist. Derived from the Latin "libertinus," a man that was once a bondsman but who has been made free, it was metaphorically used to designate one who had been released, or who had released himself from the bonds of religious belief, and become in matters of faith a doubter or denyer. - Hence "a stupid Atheist" denoted, to use the language of the Psalmist, "the fool hath said in his heart there is no God," while an "irreligious libertine" designated the man, who with a degree lean of unbelief, denies the, distinctive doctrines of revealed religion. And this meaning of the expression connects itself very appropriately with the succeeding paragraph of the Charge alluded to by our correspondent. " But though in ancient times, Masons were charged in every country to be of the religion of that country or nation, whatever it was, yet it is now thought more expedient only to oblige them to that religion in which all men agree, leaving their particular opinions to themselve..
5.0 out of 5 starsA comforting read after a personal tragedy
August 15, 2019
Format: Kindle Edition
A good friend of mine died recently under very tragic circumstances. Some of us saw it coming for quite a while but it was still a huge shock when it finally happened. I picked up this book at the advice of a friend and absolutely couldn't put it down. I'd read it walking the dog, getting fast food, or even just lounging around the house. It helped me realized that my friend really believed in something, and that giving your life for the CIA, NSA, FBI, Mossad, or other intelligence agency is truly a higher calling and not something to mourn. A wholehearted recommendation.
Jeffrey Epstein, the financier who was long dogged by accusations of sexual abuse of girls and who was able to cultivate an array of high-profile friends despite his lurid lifestyle, killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell, officials said on Saturday.
Mr. Epstein hanged himself, the officials said. He was found at around 6:30 a.m. Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the federal Bureau of Prisons said in a statement.
Last month, after being denied bail on federal sex trafficking charges, Mr. Epstein was found unconscious in his jail cell with marks on his neck. Prison officials had been investigating the incident as a possible suicide attempt.
Mr. Epstein, who had been found injured on July 23, was placed on suicide watch and received a daily psychiatric evaluation, according to a person familiar with his detention. He was removed from suicide watch on July 29 and returned to the special housing unit, a segregated area of the prison with extra security, this person said.
Wolfgang Halbig’s Quest for the Truth
The article by Elizabeth Williamson published in the New York Timeson March 29, 2019 (“How Alex Jones and Infowars helped a Florida man torment Sandy Hook families”), is so monstrously full of misinformation—and disinformation–that it deserves a response.
The “Florida man” is Wolfgang Halbig, a 71-year-old school security expert and former state trooper. Mr. Halbig has been dogged—and uncompromisingly ethical—in his search for the truth about the so-called Sandy Hook shooting, a search prompted initially by horror, giving way to astonishment and disbelief at glaring inconsistencies and falsehoods in the reportage.
At no time has Halbig “harassed,” “hounded,” “pursued,” or “tormented” Sandy Hook families. He has focused, instead, on obtaining public records from state, federal, and local agencies, such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency; Newtown Police Department; Newtown Public Schools; and Connecticut State Police. Most of these agencies provided no records whatsoeverin response to Wolf’s Freedom of Information requests, despite legal mandates.
For example, Wolf has tried, in vain, to obtain the log created pursuant to a sign that said “Everyone Must Check In” which shows up in photos of the fire station taken Dec. 14, 2012, as well as the transmission log of “Trooper 1,” the state police helicopter in the air that day, purporting to track a suspect in the woods. Halbig has been denied these indisputably public records. He subpoenaed witnesses who had presumptive knowledge of conditions at the school for his FOIA hearings, but Newtown’s attorney Monte Frank improperly told them to ignore the subpoenas, and Wolf was provided no relief for this misconduct. The police at last gave Wolf “dash cam videos” he had requested, which are not, in fact, dash cam videos, since they do not show the hood of the car. They also show different scenes putatively taken from the same loc..
It was his first time being at Augusta National for the Masters and it’s an experience he’ll never forget.
Michael Phelps spoke with NBC Sports and “Today” on Wednesday about his visit to Augusta National, focusing mainly on what it was like to stand behind Tiger Woods on the 16th hole as Woods was on his way to winning his first major in 11 years.
“Being able to watch him and how in control he is of every single thing on the golf course. I feel like every step is so calculated and every little small detail he pays so much attention to. It’s something I can relate to,” Phelps told NBC Sports as he recounted the Masters final round on Sunday.
Phelps said he has a friend who is a member of Augusta National and he was invited to attend the final round earlier in the week.
When asked how he achieved getting such good seats on the 16th hole as Woods putted his way to winning a fifth green jacket, Phelps told “Today” he just got lucky.
“We met some nice people that offered us a chair to sit next to them at some pretty cool spots and that was one of probably the coolest shots and coolest things I’ve ever seen live in sports and definitely in golf,” Phelps said of Woods’ tee shot on the 16th hole. “Just watching Tiger come back. Watching him be able to do that, get back on top of the mountain, it’s just so cool.”
Human cloning often refers to human reproductive cloning to produce a genetic copy of an existing person. Despite decades of speculation, there has been no human reproductive cloning. Research cloning, also known as embryo cloning or therapeutic cloning, is another form of human cloning that produces genetically specific embryonic stem cells. After a series of failures and high-profile false claims of success, the first report of stem cells created from cloned human embryos was published in 2013.
Some of the major concerns surrounding raised by research cloning are the risks it poses to the women who would be needed to provide the large numbers of eggs required; exaggerated and probably unrealistic claims of "personalized" therapies; and the need for effective oversight to prevent rogue efforts to use cloned embryos for reproductive human cloning.
Human reproductive cloning is widely opposed. Overwhelming majorities, typically of 80% to 90%,have consistently rejected it in opinion surveys for over 20 years. While the U.S. has no federal law on human reproductive cloning, a number of states, dozens of other countries, and several international agreements formally prohibit it. Many scientists believe that human reproductive cloning can never be made safe. It would also threaten the psychological well-being of cloned children, and could open the door to more powerful inheritable genetic manipulation technologies.
I'm telling you is true. I
stand by my word 100%. As a survivor (and now a whistleblower), I
encourage all survivors to speak out against this horrendous cult called
freemasonry. On August 9th 2018 I saw the regalia of my perpetrators in
pictures on the internet. I had not seen their aprons since I was 2-3
years old. I will not go back to sleep or remain silent. I was asleep
and silent for two decades and I know that other survivors will be
waking up, too. TPTB will be trying their best to remove this video,
censor me, harass me, and I have two things to say to them: Your time is
up. I don't fear you.
If you want to contact me, please email me at
green.sun[email protected]. I'll try to respond to you in a timely
manner. UPDATE 10/18/2018: This email has been compromised and I'm not
receiving emails that people are sending me. This is typical censorship
of whistleblowers exposing the truth. I'm working on setting up another
email, thus my apologies for those who have tried to contact me through
Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
P.S. The greatest deceit of lucifer is to make people think that he
doesn't even exist. I was deceived for the last 10 years, but no longer.
When I first became interested in the flat-earthers in the early 1970s, I was surprised to learn that flat-earthism in the English-speaking world is and always has been entirely based upon the Bible. I have since assembled and read an extensive collection of flat-earth literature. The Biblical arguments for flat-earthism that follow come mainly from my reading of flat-earth literature, augmented by my own reading of the Bible.
Except among Biblical inerrantists, it is generally agreed that the Bible describes an immovable earth. At the 1984 National Bible-Science Conference in Cleveland, geocentrist James N. Hanson told me there are hundreds of scriptures that suggest the earth is immovable. I suspect some must be a bit vague, but here are a few obvious texts:
1 Chronicles 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”
Psalm 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm ...”
Psalm 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable ...”
Psalm 104:5: “Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”
Isaiah 45:18: “...who made the earth and fashioned it, and himself fixed it fast...”
Suffice to say that the earth envisioned by flat-earthers is as immovable as any geocentrist could desire. Most (perhaps all) scriptures commonly cited by geocentrists have also been cited by flat-earthers. The flat-earth view is geocentricity with further restrictions.
Like geocentrists, flat-earth advocates often give long lists of texts. Samuel Birley Rowbotham, founder of the modern flat-earth movement, cited 76 scriptures in the last chapter of his monumental second edition of Earth not a Globe. Apostle Anton Darms, assistant to the Reverend Wilbur Glenn Voliva, America's best known flat-earther, compiled 50 questions about the creation and the shape of the earth, bolstering his answers with up to 20 scriptures each. Rather than presenting an exhaustive compendium of flat-earth..
The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men
A collection of depressing quotes about government:
“The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”
“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
— H.L. Mencken
“All political parties die at last of swallowing their own lies.”
— John Arbuthnot
“Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
— Julius Caesar, (too good a quote to ignore but possibly an urban legend)
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
— H.L. Mencken
“The only good bureaucrat is one with a pistol at his head. Put it in his hand and it’s good-bye to the Bill of Rights.”
— H.L. Mencken
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”
— Groucho Marx
“The worst government is the most moral. One composed of cynics is often very tolerant and humane. But when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression. “
— H.L. Mencken

Mob Mentality Leads To Mass Murder!! Are Freemasons In The Cross-hairs??
What do we know about Freemasonry?
There are about six million Freemasons around the world, about 200,000 of them in England and Wales. That means there’s been a drop in membership of about 150,000 in England and Wales in the last 20 years.
There are about 30,000 active masons in Scotland and about 25,000 in Ireland, 70% of them in Northern Ireland.
The basic unit of organisation is the lodge, of which there are about 6,300 in England and Wales. Some have exotic names. There’s the Chapter of Sincerity in Norwich, for example, and the Swan of Avon in Warwickshire.
Lodges are organised in towns and cities, at universities or around schools, recruited from trades or professions, or are based upon military units. They have also been organised around other interests, such as football or rugby fans. The Mike Hailwood lodge recruits motor racing fans. The Lux In Tenebris lodge – light in darkness – was established toward the end of the first world war for blind masons.
There are a number of lodges for women, governed by their own grand lodges, but those governed by UGLE are entirely male affairs. Despite efforts to recruit younger men, particularly undergraduates, masons are also predominantly middle-aged or elderly. Only 2% in England and Wales are under 30, but more than 10% are over 80.
Candidates were traditionally recruited by word of mouth, but in the digital age men can apply online. Some of the rumours about the ancient initiation ceremony are true. The candidate must roll up one trouser leg to show that he is healthy and unshackled, a free man. He must expose his left breast to show that he is not a woman. A rope noose known as a cable tow is placed around his neck. This represents either an umbilical cord or ties to fellow masons. It is open to interpretation.
He is then led blindfolded into the lodge meeting room, where he is introduced to the secret signs of recognition – a word, a handshake, a symbol – and expected to deliver oaths of loyalty and secrecy. T..
The Apocalypse is, to those who receive the nineteenth Degree, the Apothesis of that 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! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, for traditions are full of sensual or selfish Souls ? Doubt it not! Divine Revelations and Inspirations: and Inspiration is not of one Age nor of one Creed. Plato and Philo, also, were inspired. The Apocalypse, indeed, is a book as obscure as the Sohar. It is written hieroglyphically with numbers and images; and the Apostle often appeals to the intelligence of the Initiated. “Let him who hath knowledge, understand! let him who understands, calculate !” he often says, after an allegory or the mention of a number. Saint John, the favorite Apostle, and the Depositary of all the Secrets of the Saviour, therefore did not write to be understood by the multitude.
In the first sentence A.Pike directly says that mason-candidates of the 19th degree (to whom this chapter is addressed) must aspire to God alone despite the works of Lucifer. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Now having the context before my eyes I saw clearly why the name of Lucifer appears in all capitals in the next sentence – because the name itself puzzles A.Pike. He knows that ‘Lucifer’ means ‘Light-bearer’ in Latin and he is simply surprized why this sort of name is used for the Spirit of Darkness. He assumes that his reader knows Latin and understands the question. This naming of Satan as a ‘Light-bearer’ is indeed weird, but it was not invented by A.Pike. It was used by the Church for centuries since its first appearance in Vulgate, the Latin Bible. The next sentence says that Lucifer’s light can blind (seduce) the weak ones, which is again a fairly common idea. ‘Doubt it not!’ is making the statement yet stronger – yes, s..
