And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them. --Ezekiel 33:33

O, treachery!
--Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act III, scene iii

American Freemasonry and related power elites are responsible for a number of murders and provocations to war which happened along or close to the northern 33rd degree of latitude, also known as the 33rd Parallel. Most of the world's wealth is stored north of the north 33rd Parallel. Major financial centers north of the 33rd Parallel include London, New York, Chicago, and Switzerland. Most of this planet's six billion people live south of the 33rd Parallel.

Ironically, due to the power of the Masons and related power elites, the major publishers will rarely, if ever, publish books by any scholar who ventures into the forbidden issue of the Masons and power elites. When a major publisher does publish such a book, the result is censorship. For example, "Tragedy and Hope," written by a Professor Carroll Quigley, an exposÚ of the Bilderberger Group, was withdrawn by Macmillan, its publisher, within months of its publication. The Internet, talk radio, small presses, and underground publishers have kept information available to those who want to know the truth.

James Shelby Downard (1913-1998)'s seminal essay, "Sorcery, Sex, Assassination and the Science of Symbolism" analyzed the 1963 President John F. Kennedy assassination in terms of geography, names, and symbols. Kennedy was shot while riding in the back of a limousine on Elm Street in Dallas, Texas, just south of the 33rd degree of latitude, the 33rd Parallel. The United States "Nightmare on Elm Street" happened when a trained assassin, not Lee Harvey Oswald, shot President Kennedy from a position in front of Kennedy. This assassination and the ensuing cover-up are significant because the victim was the most powerful man on earth, the President of the United States, and because the perpetrators have never been brought to justice.

Significant though it was, the JFK assassination is only one among many calculated murders that have happened along, or close to, the 33rd Parallel. The number of murders of people of high position and key witnesses along the 33rd Parallel is significant. In addition, the three most well-known centers of paranormal activity are on or near the 33rd Parallel: Atlantis, the Great Pyramids, and the Bermuda Triangle.

The number 33 is seen in different areas of life: The human foot has 33 muscles. The number of turns in a complete sequence of human DNA equals 33. The Holy Bible, New International Version, uses the word "thirty-three" seven times in seven verses. King David reigned in Jerusalem 33 years (2 Samuel 5:5, 1 Kings 2:11, 1 Kings 5:16, 1 Chronicles 3:4, and 1 Chronicles 29:27). Genesis 46:15 states: "These sons and daughters of his [Israel's or Jacob's] were thirty-three in all.") Leviticus Chapter 12 discusses purification after childbirth. Leviticus 12:4 states that after the boy is circumcised on the eighth day, "Then the woman must wait thirty-three days to be purified from her bleeding. She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until her days of her purification are over."

Jesus Christ, having begun his three-year ministry at about the age of 30 (Luke 3:23), must have died on the cross and rose again at the age of 33. The Catholic Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) divided his Divine Comedy into 100 Cantos: one Canto for the introduction, 33 Cantos for the Inferno, 33 Cantos for the Purgatorio, and 33 Cantos for the Paradiso. Masons and their confederates may note that Dante placed the traitors to their guests in a deep pit of Hell in his 33rd Canto of the Inferno.

The seduction of secret societies is as old as the Garden of Eden, when the serpent beguiled Eve, saying to her, "Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil" (Genesis 3:4-5). In one form or another, cults and secret societies falsely promise something better than what God has to offer, promising immortality on earth and godhood. Secret societies often "determine in the depths the changes that take place on the surface." Arthur Edward Waite, quoted by A. Ralph Epperson, The Unseen Hand 126 (1985). Of all the secret societies in the world, the only one in which the number 33 is important is the secret cult of Freemasonry, which mixes a brew of symbols from Egypt, the Bible, Persia, alchemy, and twisted occultists' imaginations.

Freemasons are sworn to protect their brother Freemasons should they engage in immoral or criminal conduct. The royal arch mason swears, "I will aid and assist a companion royal arch mason, when engaged in any difficulty, and espouse his cause, so far as to extricate him from the same, if in my power, whether he be right or wrong. . . A companion royal arch mason's secrets, given me in charge as such, and I knowing him to be such, shall remain as secure and inviolable, in my breast as in his own, murder and treason not excepted."

Chronology of Significant Events at the northern 33rd degree of latitude: 2589 B.C. to 1963 A.D.

2589 - 2566 BC. The Great Pyramid was built in Egypt by masons at a location not far south of 30 degrees latitude, and on 31 degrees longitude. How the Great Pyramid was built is unknown. Herodotus estimated that it would have taken 30 years and 100,000 slaves (slavemasons as opposed to Freemasons) to have built it. Another theory says that it was built by peasants who were unable to work the land while the Nile flooded between July and November. The flooded waters would have assisted in the transport of the stones, which were brought from Aswan and Tura and the water would have brought the stones right to the pyramid. It would have taken more than 2.3 million blocks of stone with an average weight of 2.5 tons each. The total weight would have been 6 million tons, the height, 482 feet. It is the largest and the oldest of the Pyramids of Giza.

Little is known about Cheops (Khufu) because the tomb was robbed before archeologists found it. Any information about him was taken with the objects stolen from the tomb. Cheops, the ruler of complex society, must have as wealthy in his time as Bill Gates in ours. Cheops was buried alone in this colossal tomb. His wives may have been buried nearby in smaller mastabas.

1470 B.C. (?) Atlantis destroyed? A continent was reputedly the size of Europe. It boasted gorgeous cities, advanced technology and utopian government. It suffered a cataclysm and was reduced to rubble that sank beneath the sea, lost forever. The legend of Atlantis has been around for thousands of years, and whatever its factual validity may be, it does claim a noble heritage, for its earliest known proponent was Plato.

The Greek philosopher wrote of Atlantis in two of his dialogues, "Timaeus" and "Critias," around 370 B.C. Plato said that this was a true story which derived from then-200-year-old records of the Greek ruler Solon, who heard of Atlantis from an Egyptian priest. Plato wrote that the continent lay in the Atlantic Ocean near the Straits of Gibraltar until its destruction 10,000 years before. In "Timaeus," Plato described Atlantis as a prosperous nation out to expand its domain: "Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent," he wrote, "and, furthermore, the men of Atlantis had subjected the parts of Libya within the columns of Heracles as far as Egypt, and of Europe as far as Tyrrhenia."

Plato then tells how the Atlanteans made a mistake by attacking Greece. They could not withstand the Greeks' military might, and following their defeat, a natural disaster sealed their fate. "Timaeus" continues: "But afterwards there occurred violent earthquakes and floods; and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea." Plato tells a more metaphysical version of the Atlantis story in "Critias," where he describes the lost continent as the kingdom of Poseidon, the god of the sea. This Atlantis was a noble, sophisticated society that reigned in peace for centuries, until its people became complacent and greedy. Angered by their fall from grace, Zeus chose to punish them by destroying Atlantis. Although Plato was the first to use the term "Atlantis," there are antecedents to the legend. In an Egyptian legend which Solon probably heard while traveling in Egypt, and which was passed down to Plato years later, the island nation of Keftiu, home of one of the four pillars that held up the sky, was said to be a glorious advanced civilization which was destroyed and sank beneath the ocean.

Another Atlantis-like story is closer to Plato's world, in terms of time and geography, and it is factual. The Minoan Civilization was a great and peaceful culture based on the island of Crete, which reigned as long ago as 2200 B.C. The Minoan island of Santorini, later known as Thera, was home to a huge volcano. In 1470 B.C., it erupted with a force estimated to be greater than Krakatoa, and it destroyed everything on Santorini's surface. The resulting earthquakes and tsunamis devastated the rest of the Minoan Civilization, whose remnants were easily conquered by Greek forces. Santorini may have been the "real" Atlantis. Some have argued against this idea, noting Plato specified that Atlantis sank 10,000 years ago, but the Minoan disaster had taken place only 1,000 years earlier. Still, it could be that translation errors over the centuries changed Plato's original writing. Alternatively, Plato may have blurred the historical facts to suit his purposes. Or, Atlantis may be purely Plato's invention. Just the same, his story of the sunken continent has caught the imagination of succeeding generations. Other Greek thinkers, such as Aristotle and Pliny, disputed the existence of Atlantis, while Plutarch and Herodotus wrote of it as historical fact. Atlantis became entrenched in folklore all around the world, charted on ocean maps and sought by explorers.

In 1882, Ignatius Donnelly, a U.S. congressman from Minnesota, brought the legend into the American consciousness with his book, Atlantis: The Antediluvian World. In more recent years, the psychic Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) became the U.S.'s most prominent advocate of a factual Atlantis. Widely known as "The Sleeping Prophet," Cayce claimed the ability to see the future and to communicate with long-dead spirits from the past. He identified hundreds of people -- including himself -- as reincarnated Atlanteans. Cayce said that Atlantis had been situated near the Bermuda island of Bimini. He believed that Atlanteans possessed remarkable technologies, including supremely powerful "fire-crystals" which they harnessed for energy. A disaster in which the fire-crystals went out of control was responsible for Atlantis's sinking, he said, in what sounds like a cautionary fable on the dangers of nuclear power. Remaining active beneath the ocean waves, damaged fire-crystals emit energy fields that disrupt ships and aircraft -- which is how Cayce accounted for the Bermuda Triangle.

1704-1662 B.C. The Babylonian empire was based in Babylon, near the 33rd Parallel. The empire stretched from the Persian Gulf to the middle Euphrates River and upper Tigris River regions. Hammurabi, the last great king of the first dynasty, developed his legal code and ordered it to be incised on a basalt column and placed in the temple of Shamash, the god of justice, for all to see.

1500 B.C. Tel Megiddo: One of the most important archaeological mounds in Israel, Tel Megiddo has the remains of historic Megiddo, a fortified city that sat strategically on the ancient trunk road from Egypt to Syria and Mesopotamia. Near the 33rd Parallel, Tel Megiddo has served as an important junction and battlefield throughout history. It is mentioned in an Egyptian document over 3,500 years old, was one of the chariot cities of Kings Solomon and Ahab, and was the site where Josiah, King of Judah, fell in battle.

Excavations have uncovered the ruins of 25 cities dating from 4,000 to 400 B.C. Ruined structures, now visible, belong to the fortified "chariot city" built by King Solomon in the 10th century B.C. An ancient water system, dating from the 9th century B.C., is well preserved. It is a phenomenal piece of engineering which has a big shaft, sunk 120 feet through rock, meeting a tunnel cut more than 200 feet to a spring outside the city. The spring was hidden by a wall and camouflaged by a covering of earth.

1025 - 945 B.C. Tyre, Lebanon: Home of King Hiram and the mythological Hiram Abiff, the Terrible Twosome of Masonic legend. Tyre is less than 20 miles north of the 33rd Parallel. Hiram was the King of Tyre in the reigns of David and Solomon. He was on friendly terms with both of them. King Hiram is first mentioned in the Holy Bible at 2 Samuel 5:11, almost at the start of his reign, when he sent messengers to David with cedar trees, carpenters and masons who built David a house. The wood was floated in rafts down the coast to Joppa, then brought overland to Jerusalem. Hiram, who admired David, sent an embassy to Solomon after David's death, as recorded in 1 Kings 5:1. Solomon took advantage of Hiram and arranged for Hiram to send him timber of cedar and fir from Lebanon. Hiram's "stone-squarers" (1 Kings 5:18) were men of Gebal (modern Jebail) north of Beirut.

Both Solomon and Hiram were Semites. Solomon supplied Hiram with large quantities of wheat and olive oil annually for food (1 Kings 5:11), and he surrendered 20 "cities" of Galilee to Hiram (1 Kings 9:10-13). When Solomon had finished building the temple (seven years) and his palace (13 years), Hiram came to Galilee. Hiram was greatly dissatisfied when he saw the cities, and he nicknamed them "Cabul," a term of uncertain origin which Joseph in his Antiquities (8:5:3) says means "not pleasing" in the Phoenician tongue.

Hiram and Solomon built a navy and equipped it with sailors on the Red Sea. They made expeditions from Ezion-geber at the head of the Gulf of Aqabah south to Ophir, where they purchased gold (1 Kings 9:28). They also had a "navy of Tarshish" o the Mediterranean which brought to them from afar "gold and silver, ivory, apes and peacocks" (1 Kings 10:22). No definite record has been found of Hiram's death. Hiram had a daughter who became of Solomon's "seven hundred" wives (1 Kings 11:1, 3).

A century later Ethbaal, who was Hiram's great grandson, was called "king of Sidon" in 1 Kings 16:31. Ethbaal's daughter, Jezebel, became Ahab's notorious queen (1 Kings 16:31). Renewed troubles after Ethbaal's death led to the emigration of Elissa, the Dido of Virgil's Aeneid IV, and to the foundation of Carthage.

The Holy Bible does record a Hiram, a worker in brass. King Solomon brought this Hiram from Tyre to help build the temple (1 Kings 7:13, 14, 40-45; 2 Chronicles 2:13, 14; 4:11-16). This Hiram's mother was a woman of the tribe of Dan who had married first into the tribe of Naphtali, then later a man of Tyre. However, the name "Hiram Abiff" is nowhere in the Holy Bible. His name, and the myth surrounding his death and resurrection, are the product of occultists' imaginations.

In the period from 587 B.C. to 581 B.C., the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel prophesied that Tyre would "become a spoil to the nations" (Ezekiel 26:5), a place to spread nets upon (26:14 and 47:10), and "built no more" (26:14). In 332 B.C., pursuant to Ezekiel's prophecy, Tyre fell to ruin when Alexander the Great besieged and stormed the city.

875-848 B.C. The Biblical Mount Carmel is south of the modern city of Haifa and west of the Sea of Galilee in Israel. Mount Carmel is less than 20 miles south of the 33rd Parallel. At Carmel Elijah the Hebrew prophet stood against 850 heathen prophets and defeated them (1 Kings 18).

593-571 B.C. In Ezekiel Chapter 28, the prophet wrote while in exile in Babylon, not far south of the 33rd Parallel. Ezekiel wrote about the ruler of Tyre. Tyre is less than 20 miles north of the 33rd Parallel. The prophecy of Ezekiel called the king of Tyre wealthy and skilled in trading but proud and destined to destruction:

{6} "'Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "'Because you think you are wise, as wise as a god, {7} I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of nations; they will draw their swords against your beauty and wisdom and pierce your shining splendor. {8} They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a violent death in the heart of the seas. {9} Will you then say, "I am a god," in the presence of those who kill you? You will be but a man, not a god, in the hands of those who slay you. {10} You will die the death of the uncircumcised at the hands of foreigners. I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD.'"

Ezekiel continues by comparing the king of Tyre to the fallen angel, Satan:

"You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. {15} You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. {16} Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. {17} Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. {18} By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. {19} All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more."

605-562 B.C. Babylon was the predominant city in the ancient world during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar II.

Circa 29 A.D. At Caesarea Philippi, near the 33rd Parallel, Jesus Christ predicted his own death (Matthew 16:22).

1492 As the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria sailed through the Bermuda Triangle in 1492, Columbus's compass went haywire and that he and his crew saw weird lights in the sky. This could have been a Bermuda Triangle paranormal event or a sign from God. These events, however, have mundane explanations. Columbus's compass's slight inaccuracy may have stemmed from nothing more than the discrepancy between true north and magnetic north. As for the lights, Columbus wrote of seeing "a great flame of fire" that crashed into the ocean -- probably a meteor. He saw lights in the sky again on October 11-- the day before his famous landing. The lights, brief flashes near the horizon, were spotted in the area where dry land turned out to be. Although there are rational explanations for what Columbus saw, his experience has contributed to the legend of the Bermuda Triangle, the huge three-sided segment of the Atlantic Ocean bordered by Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

1500s In Spain (33rd Parallel?) , renegade Jesuits and Franciscans took the name Alumbrados (Enlightened). They believed in direct contact between the human soul and the Holy Spirit. ?? Which prompted the Inquisition to issue three edicts against the group.

1756 Charleston, South Carolina, the original site of Scottish Rite Masonry in the United States, is only 15 miles south of the 33rd Parallel.


1826 Masons murdered Masonic whistle blower Captain William Morgan. Captain Morgan was an American Freemason who wrote a book revealing Masonic secrets, "Illustrations of Freemasonry." One revealed secret was that the last mystery at the top of the Masonic pyramid is the worship of Lucifer, that is, Satan. In the legend of the murder of Hiram Abiff, Abiff represents intelligence, liberty and truth, and was struck down by a blow to the neck with a rule, representing the suppression of speech by the church. Then a square struck him in the heart. This represented the State's suppression of belief. Last, a maul struck him on the head. This represented the suppression of intellect by the masses. So, Freemasonry equates the Church, the State, and the masses with tyranny, intolerance, and ignorance. What Morgan revealed was that the Freemasons were pledged to avenge Hiram Abiff and that their plan was to strike down the Church, the State, and the freedom of the masses.

Captain Morgan caused a small uproar against the Masons which culminated in a vital anti-Freemason movement causing nearly 40% of Masons belonging to the Northern Jurisdiction of the United States to secede and, in 1829, gave birth to an anti-Masonic political party when the author, William Morgan disappeared. He was apparently abducted and drowned in Lake Ontario, allegedly by his fellow Mason Richard Howard.

1861 On April 12, Confederate forces fired on the Union's Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, igniting the Civil War. Charleston, at the 33rd Parallel, is known officially as "the Mother Lodge of the World." This Lodge had been founded by Moses Lindo as the King Solomon Lodge.

3/03/33 Late in the preinaugural banking crisis, on March 3, 1933, the Federal Reserve Board and the New York Reserve Bank's Governor Harrison had agreed that the Board would issue an order closing all the Federal Reserve Banks. New York Governor Herbert Lehman, at the urging of Governor Harrison, also agreed to proclaim an emergency bank holiday in New York, and a similar action was taken in Illinois.

One of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's first official acts after taking office on Inauguration Day (Saturday, March 4, 1933), was to proclaim an emergency, three-day, nationwide banking holiday, signed and effective Monday, March 6. FDR was a member of the Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, i.e., the Shriners. Shriners are 33rd degree Masons.


1935 . The Great Seal of United States was established on June 20, 1782. The back of the Great Seal was barely known until the 1930s when it became a part of the dollar bill under Masonic United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt On the reverse side of the Great Seal are an eye and a pyramid. Over the eye and pyramid is an inscription, "Annuit Coeptis," Latin for "He favors our undertakings." "Undertaking" means a venture, a promise, of the profession or duties of a funeral director. The Masons would like to believe that God favors their duties as funeral directors. The Masons become funeral directors by first directing whose body will at the funeral, and where that life will be taken. If a life is taken close to the northern 33rd Parallel, this fits with the Masons' demonic mythology in which they demonstrate their worldly power by spilling human blood at a predetermined locale.

The inscription below the pyramid is "Novus Ordo Seclorum," Latin for "The New Order of the Ages." Taking the fist and last letters of each inscription, and the first letter of the middle word, "Ordo," in the second inscription, the letter are M-A-S-O-N. Masons, in the original sense of the word as builders and stonemasons, built the Great Pyramid.

The eye of the pyramid on the Great Seal is "the eye of god," which "watches and pierces the heart. Who knows its name? Call it love, creation, conspiracy," says the Egyptian Book of Coming Forth by Day, better known as the Egyptian Book of the Dead. The death theme continues with the pyramid itself. The Greek origin of the word "pyramid" derives from fire-especially "funeral pyre." The King's Burial Chamber is found in the center of the Great Pyramid. For the Great Pyramid functioned as a giant tomb for the Pharaoh.

1945 Near the end of World War II, on April 12, 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt met his "sudden death" of a cerebral hemorrhage at the 33rd Parallel at Warm Springs, Georgia. His last words were, "I have a terrific headache." His medical chart is missing.

1945 Roosevelt's successor was Harry S Truman. "I've got every degree in the Masons that there is," said Truman. Harry S Truman often told journalists, "The S doesn't stand for anything." However, after he attained the 33rd degree as a Mason, Truman secretly changed his name by adding the middle initial "S," which stood for Solomon. Truman's rise as a politician is traceable to Masonic sponsorship. He said that being Grand Master for the whole state of Missouri helped him win a U.S. Senate Seat in 1940. Truman's sister, Mary Jane Truman, was the Grand Matron of Missouri in the Order of the Eastern Star, a Masonic organization.

As the 33rd President, this 33rd degree Mason initiated the Nuclear Age, the crowning success of alchemy, when the first A-bomb exploded at the 33rd Parallel Trinity Test Site, (Almagordo) White Sands, New Mexico, at the 33rd Parallel. He was responsible for killing of thousands of Japanese (the Yellow Peril) at two cities close to the 33rd Parallel, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

On August 6, 1945 at 8:15 a.m. United States B-29 bomber Enola Gay, on Mission No. 13, dropped an atomic bomb called "Little Boy" on Hiroshima, Japan near the 33rd Parallel. This was "Day One" of a new age, the Nuclear Age. To understand the change that took place, we must back up and look at the importance of the number 13 from the formation of the United States to the atomic bomb's explosion in Hiroshima.

In 1935, Paul Foster Case wrote: "Since the date, 1776, is placed on the bottom course of the pyramid [on the Great Seal], and since the number 13 has been so important in the history of the United States and in the symbols of the seal, it is not unreasonable to suppose that the thirteen courses of the pyramid may represent thirteen time-periods of thirteen years each." The 13 time-periods of 13 years each equaled 169 years. From July 4, 1776 to July 4, 1945 equaled 169 years. From July 4, 1945 to August 6, 1945 (Hiroshima) was 33 days.

1946 On August 19, 1946, Bill Clinton, the 42nd President, was born in Hope, Arkansas, at the 33rd Parallel. His parentage is disputed. As a young man, Bill Clinton was a Master Counselor of the Masonic-connected Demolay. ("Demolay" derives from the Grand Master of the Knights Templar, James deMolay (1244-1314)). Clinton's ties with the C.I.A. began when he studied at Oxford. Clinton's reign as President has been noted for numerous scandals, including the unexplained deaths of more than 50 of his associates by means of bullets and plane crashes.

1947 On July 8, 1947 a UFO and aliens' bodies were allegedly found in the desert outside Roswell, New Mexico at the 33rd Parallel.

1947 On July 26, 1947, while aboard the presidential aircraft "Sacred Cow," Masonic United States President Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947. The Act created an independent Air Force, the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency. The National Security State was born.

1947 On December 5, 1947, the disappearance of Flight 19 spurred on the legend of the Bermuda Triangle. Five Navy Avenger bombers vanished while on a routine training mission, as did a rescue plane sent to search for them -- six aircraft and 27 men, gone without a trace. Or so the story goes. When all the facts are laid out, the tale of Flight 19 becomes far less puzzling. All of the crewmen of the five Avengers were inexperienced trainees, with the exception of their patrol leader, Lt. Charles Taylor. Taylor was perhaps not at the height of his abilities that day, as some reports indicate that he had a hangover and failed in his attempts to pass off this flight duty to someone else.

A search party was dispatched, which included the Martin Mariner that many claim disappeared into the Bermuda Triangle along with Flight 19. While it is true that it never returned, the Mariner did not vanish. Twenty-three seconds after takeoff, it exploded in the sight of several witnesses at the base. Unfortunately this was not an uncommon occurrence, because Mariners were known for their faulty gas tanks. No known wreckage from Flight 19 has ever been recovered. One reasonable explanation is that Taylor led the planes so far into the Atlantic that they were past the continental shelf. There the ocean abruptly drops from a few hundred feet deep to several thousand feet deep. Planes and ships that sink to such depths are seldom seen again. The deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean, the 30,100-foot-deep Puerto Rico Trench, lies within the Bermuda Triangle.

Combining the circumstances of the failing compass, the difficulty of radio transmissions, and the absence of wreckage, tales of mysterious intervention befalling Flight 19 began to take form. Theories involving strange magnetic fields, time warps, Atlantis, and alien abduction began to appear. Even an official Navy report intimated that the Avengers had disappeared "as if they had flown to Mars." The lost aviators reappeared from a spaceship at Devil's Tower National Monument in Steven Spielberg's 1977 movie, "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

1948 During the Israeli War of Independence, the Israelis overcame invading Arabs forces at Mishmar Haemek. The reunification of the Jews had been prophesied by Ezekiel in Chapter 28, the same chapter which told of the fall of the King of Tyre.


1963: The Kennedy Assassination
1963 JFK Sr. was shot from the front and killed in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas near the 33rd Parallel on 11/22/63 (11 + 22 = 33). Dealey Plaza is the site of the first masonic temple in Dallas. The Masons who co-ordinated the assassination were traitors to their guest, United States President John F. Kennedy Sr. An article in the Realist, 1991, suggests that George Bush was taped in a telephone conversation with [Masons] Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, Allen Dulles, Nelson Rockefeller, and J. Edgar Hoover, in which the parties discussed the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Some Masons who were involved in the cover-up of the Kennedy assassination are as follows:

Johnson had received the Entered Apprentice Degree in Johnson City Lodge No. 561, Texas, on October 30, 1937. Johnson, as next in line for the Presidency, was the most direct beneficiary of JFK's death. He was a Mason who hated JFK, a Catholic. One of Johnson's first acts as President was to call the Dallas Police to order them to stop the investigation because they had their man, Oswald. This was an illegal order because the President has no authority to tell city police how to conduct a homicide investigation. President Johnson also ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to check every aspect of the assassination. This was a whitewash. The F.B.I. was headed by J. Edgar Hoover, who had become a member of Federal Lodge No. 1, District of Columbia, on November 9, 1920.

The public wanted more answers concerning the murder of the President than the Masonic-controlled F.B.I. could provide. So, on November 29, 1963, President Johnson issued an executive order creating the Warren Commission, named after the man President Johnson had chosen to lead it, United States Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren. Warren, a Past Grand Master of Masons in California, was joined on the Commission by two other known Freemasons: Senator Richard B. Russell, a member of Winder Lodge No. 33, Georgia, and Representative Gerald R. Ford of Michigan. John Sherman Cooper, Hale Boggs, Allen W. Dulles, and John J. McCloy were the others on the Commission. Allen W. Dulles had been Director of the C.I.A. until JFK fired him. Louisiana Democratic Congressman Hale Boggs, who later publicly expressed doubts about the Warren Commission Report, disappeared in a plane between Anchorage and Juneau, Alaska on October 16, 1972.

Masons representing many interests may have conferred and reached a consensus on Kennedy's fate, as occurred in the Morgan case in 1826, each knowing their discussions would be held in confidence. Their motives would probably be to protect and advance business interests and their social positions. These would include:

  • Taking the presidency for Freemason Lyndon B. Johnson,
  • Protecting Freemason J. Edgar Hoover's control of the F.B.I.,
  • Eliminating Kennedy's softening position on communism, a threat to a wide variety of American business interests overseas,
  • Slowing the progress of the civil rights movement, an irritation to the KKK and other racists, and
  • Eliminating Kennedy's challenges to the CIA's leadership; he'd fired CIA
  • Director Allen Dulles (another Warren Commission member) and Deputy Director Charles Cabell.

  • Another motive was a violent reaction to Catholicism. At that time Kennedy's Church, Catholicism, condemned membership in Freemasonry "under pain of excommunication".

    The Warren Commission, accomplished its mission to cover up the truth. It concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in killing JFK in 1963. The name Oswald is used by Shakespeare and the Beatles. In "I Am the Walrus," released on November 27, 1967 by the Beatles, John Lennon played a BBC production of Shakespeare's King Lear Act IV, Scene 6, lines 249-259 in the background of the song. The lines are as follows:

    Oswald:     Slave, thou hast slain me. Villain, take my purse.
                      If ever thou wilt thrive, bury my body
                      And give the letters which you find'st about me
                      To Edmund, Earl of Gloucester. Seek him out
                      Upon the English party. O, untimely death!
                      Death! [He dies]

    Edgar:        I know thee well: a serviceable villain,
                      As duteous to the vices of thy mistress
                      As badness would desire.

    Gloucester: What, is he dead?

    Edgar:         Sit you down, father. Rest you. [Gloucester sits.]

    Oswald was a "serviceable villain" to the Masonic plotters who covered their tracks by setting him up as the patsy. In King Lear, Oswald was duteous to the vices of his mistress, the treasonous daughter Goneril. In JFK's assassination, Oswald was duteous to the vices of his mistress, the treasonous Masons in the F.B.I., an organization which destroyed his last communication to it and ordered him to the theater where he was arrested.

    A Masonic conspiracy provides historical precedents for the assassination, provides an existing organizational structure capable of covering-up the crime, explains the absence of internal records, and provides many potential motives. The bigger issue, one that must still be answered, was asked in an American Anti-Masonic pamphlet published in 1829 and holds true for today:

    Ought a secret society to exist amongst us whose members can commit murder and yet escape punishment? MASONS HAVE done this, and their brethren . . . are sworn to protect them. Fellow citizens, are men bound by such obligations and possessing such principals, FIT to be rulers of a FREE PEOPLE?

    The Kennedy assassination appears to have been part a campaign of assassinations against a generation of leaders who posed challenges to the entrenched power structure. The death toll included John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Viewed as a whole, these assassinations lead to the conclusion that anyone who promotes serious social reforms geared toward sharing the wealth and power will not be tolerated in a leadership position.

    Kennedy was planning to withdraw from Vietnam "by the end of 1965." Shortly after JFK's death, Freemason Lyndon Johnson reversed Kennedy's policy toward Vietnam. The escalating involvement in the Vietnam conflict was driven by the Freemasons who solidified their control of the United States government after the assassination of President Kennedy. The War in Vietnam profited the arms makers and drug runners. Both the American and Vietnamese peoples have paid dearly in both squandered resources and lost lives to pursue the dubious objectives of the illegitimate Masonic leadership.

    Chronology of Significant Events at the northern 33rd degree of latitude: 1964 A.D. to the Future

    1968 On June 5, 1968, shortly after winning the California primary election, United Senator Robert F. Kennedy was shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California, close to the 33rd Parallel and near a Masonic Lodge. This was a sophisticated assassination plot. Two groups were co-ordinated to kill the Senator. Two people shot at Senator Kennedy, a Mafia hit man and a Manchurian candidate. Also involved was the Khaiber Khan, an Iranian secret agent who had assisted the C.I.A. with the 1953 coup in Iran. Khaiber Khan had powerful ties to British Intelligence. The cover-up involved CIA agents in the LAPD, police destruction of evidence, police badgering of witnesses, and perjury by a police criminalist.

    The Mason-controlled major media has ignored the overwhelming evidence that two guns were fired in the pantry where Senator Kennedy was killed, and that Sirhan Sirhan could not have fired the fatal bullet into Kennedy's head. To draw attention away from the Kennedys, J. Edgar Hoover, the Masonic drag queen F.B.I. Director, waited until the day of the RFK funeral to announce that James Earl Ray, the Mason's patsy for the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., had been arrested in England.

    1990 Mason/ Skull and Bones member George Bush, the 41st United States President, provoked a war with Saddam Hussein. On July 25, 1990, the United States Ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, told Hussein that the Iraq/Kuwait dispute was an Arab matter, not one that affects the United States. On August 2, 1990, believing that the United States' Ambassador's word meant something, Hussein invaded Kuwait. In "retaliation" for the invasion he had orchestrated through his Ambassador, Mason George Bush organized Desert Storm, which concerned a border dispute between Kuwait and Iraq at the 33rd Parallel. Shortly after Desert Storm began, Mason George Bush pronounced that this the beginning of a "New World Order."

    1991 January: During his State of the Union message during the Gulf War, President George Bush stated: "What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea - a new world order. . . to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind. . . based upon shared principles and the rule of law. . . . The illumination of a thousand points of light. . . . The winds of change are with us now." Bagdad, Iraq's capital, and the United Nations-enforced "no fly zone" are at the 33rd degree of north latitude.

    1993 Waco, Texas, just south of the 32nd degree of north latitude, is the site of the Masonic Grand Lodge of Texas. On April 19, 1993 the Clinton Administration murdered adults and children in the Branch Davidian group at Mount Carmel, a compound about 10 miles from the city of Waco.

    1997 March 13. While still shooting "Titanic," Director James Cameron secretly traveled to Arizona to become a 32nd Degree Mason at the Masonic lodge in downtown Phoenix, on March 13th, 1997. While Cameron was receiving his initiation into the 32nd degree from his Law of One allies, millions of people witnessed a large V-shaped formation of "lights" over the city of Phoenix. Phoenix is just north of 33? North Latitude. Its ancient name was "Fenex." As historical reminders, many sites sacred to the Law of One are located in the vicinity of 33░? including as well as the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt which are patterned after the belt stars of "Orion".

    1998 March 23. Director James Cameron was inducted as a 33rd Degree Freemason at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles with an informal ceremony. Cameron's induction took place in a small room inside the Shrine while celebrities and movie stars were filing inside for the March 23, 1998 Academy Awards. Later, on his birthday Cameron formally became a 33rd Degree Freemason in the Supreme Council 33rd Degree Temple in Washington, D.C. Cameron is a leading "light" for the military-industrial-Hollywood complex, formerly the "military-industrial complex" which President Eisenhower had warned against in his 1961 Farewell Address.

    1998 On November 5, 1998, the movie "Titanic" began playing in Houston, Texas. The special showing debuted TheatreVision technology. Houston is south of the 30th degree of north latitude. However, the beginning time of the showing is significant: it began playing at 3:33 p.m. At least two attendees were 33rd degree Masons: Director Cameron and former President George Bush. Bush was a member of the secret society "Skull and Bones" when at Yale. A former director of the CIA, he is in the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission. After Bush took over the CIA in 1974, having been appointed by 33rd degree Mason President Gerald Ford, he destroyed or hid MK-ULTRA (CIA mind-control) projects. The TheatreVision technology may be a new generation of MK-ULTRA mind-control. Bush is alleged to have been involved in the smuggling of drugs from Central America to the U.S. in the 1980s and when President, he publicly uttered the words "New World Order" in front of the entire world.

    1999 In Columbiana, Alabama, on August 5, 1999, Alan Eugene Miller allegedly killed two co-workers and also a third person where Miller used to work. Columbiana, near Birmingham and Fort McClellan, is barely north of the 33rd Parallel. Sources said that under questioning, Miller told authorities he didn't remember going to the murder scenes or anything else about the killings--a statement characteristic of a Manchurian candidate.

    Soon? In the New Testament book of Revelation, Megiddo is identified as the site of the last great battle of the world, Armageddon, a corruption of the Hebrew "Har Megiddo." Revelation 16:16 (NIV) states: "Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon."

    The Masons have infiltrated the highest levels of government, business, and media. The astute viewer of world events should watch for significant events to occur on the 33rd Parallel. It is a safe bet that the truth, and what the controlled media present as the facts, will become further and further apart. A revival of the Anti-Masonic movement in the United States, such as the small movement that has begun in Great Britain, would benefit all law-abiding Americans.
