The Secret War Inside Freemasonry

I've just finished reading a book written by a guy who goes under the name Frater X and who claims he was/is an insider when it comes to York Rite and Scottish Rite Freemasonry, as well as a number of side orders in The Craft.
For the record, I'm not and never have been a Freemason, although I know that my grandfather (he passed away before I was born) on my mother's side was a Master Mason in the English Blue Lodge system of Freemasonry.
My view on The Scottish Rite branch of Freemasonry from what  I have read before on the subject was that they have always been a puppet of the Old Roman Empire elite families and that seems to be backed up by what Frater X has written in his book.
You can hear an audio of Frater X being interviewed on Red Ice Radio (I must say that I'm not a real big fan of the present incarnation of the Red Ice Radio) about his book, The Secret War Inside Freemasonry at the link below.
Red Ice Radio - Frater X - Hour 1 - The Secret War Inside Freemasonry
 And here are a few more interviews featuring Frater X below.
All very well worth a listen.
I found it interesting how Frater X writes about Albert Pike's statue being moved in 1977 to its current spot in DC.
So, by the look of that banner with the double-headed eagle, it's not hard to see that Kubrick was alluding to the Scottish Rite and the Old Roman Empire families with his reference to Red Cloak 
sitting on his double-headed eagle throne calling the shots in Eyes Wide Shut, who not only propped up a BS branch of Masonrybut are also the ones who have been pulling the strings behind the Roman Catholic Church for centuries.

And it's quite ironic Kubrick filmed that party scene with Red Cloak in one of those families' homes.

Rather ironic that Frater X says this is now one of the official teaching tools of The Scottish Rite, more or less -

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Freemasonry
And don't get me wrong here, I'm not knocking Freemasonry as a whole, only the old Roman Empire's version of it, the so called "Scottish" (try French) Rite.
Scene from There is No Place Like Home Part 1 of LOST
On a side note, since I've been watching the TV series LOST for the first time, I find this rather synchy, I noticed in an episode of LOST that the coast guard plane that brings the Oceanic 6 back to 
The States has 1717 on its side.
Frater X states in his book that 1717 is the official date of the genesis of English Masonry.
Therefore, world Masonry.
 I also find it rather synchy that 2015 is the Chinese Year of the Goat and that Masonry has been associated with goats in the public eye in one way, or another.
Chinese Year of the Goat?
Tarot card #15?
Year of the Goat?)
Just on another sidenote here, did you ever wonder why the silver slippers in the original novels were changed to ruby red slippers in the movie version of The Wizard of Oz?
If you watch the You Tube I Pet Goat II you can see that it is a visual feast with a lot of things that may not be apparent at first, but just take a look at the screen shot above and we see a puppet president (aren't they all?) standing in front of a blackboard in a classroom (education being dumbed down in America?) and there is a game of Hang-man on the board which looks like it is spelling out the word "evolution", but it is quite telling that by placing a capital L in the word, that we are supposed to spell that section backwards (Love).
The hang-man is nearly dead, as we see by the one leg missing and the eyes (wide?) closed shut.
The eyes are drawn as a double cross XX and I once read that if you wanted to represent a square and compass in a typed correspondence you would type two Xs close together.
So the eyes of the hang-man could represent the impending death of Freemasonry by an organization, let's say like the Old Empire trying to bring to into disrepute in the eyes of the general public.
That house drawn on the blackboard could be anything from a Masonic Lodge to a school house, to the White House, take your pick. 
The sharks are in the water (Banksters) and seem to be trying to f#ck everything good in society up, so they can capitalize on the situation. 
The opening shot of I Pet Goat II shows a goat in a military type prison with the bar-coded #666 tattooed on its third eye and below the goat's head is a chalk drawing of a military figure being led by a dog crying,"Woof";-)
Let's not forget that the Year of the Goat is also known as the Year of the Sheep
Seeing this frame of I Pet Goat II I couldn't help but think of Katy Perry and her 2015 Superbowl performance when she came out singing her hit song 'Roar' then danced on a checkerboard with life-size chess pieces and then started dancing on an island with twin sharks.

Scene from Back to the Future 2 in the year 2015!?
So, the shark has really become a pop-cultural icon in the year BTTF2 kind of predicted with its similar looking shark to the ones Katy Perry was dancing with in the Superbowl.
Plus, it looks like we have a new cold war starting with Russia that really seems to be hotting up in 2015, which seems to be alluded to in I Pet Goat II as well.
Chinese Year of the Goat/Sheep?
"Fool me once, you can't get fooled again"?
Those lights seem to suggest an unfinished

On the subject of I Pet Goat II I saw this screen shot below of 
a solar eclipse and then see this photo of a solar eclipse this year on March 20th (The Year of the Goat).

Europe and remote Arctic islands

Anyway, I think I'll do a separate post on the I Pet Goat II video and put a link to it here when I've finished that post, otherwise this post will end up being one long examination of I Pet Goat II instead.
Now don't get me wrong about the practice and ideas of Freemasonry, especially the Blue Lodge English side of Freemasonry.
I think there is some esoteric stuff there truly worth studying from what I have read.
I like how on page 40 of Frater X's book he compares The Lodge to Dr.Who's T.A.R.D.I.S.
"Western esoteric systems, occult sciences, mystery teachings and traditions are tools and devices for inviting trans formative change in consciousness.
These vehicles can transport us into altered and heightened states, so that we can "step into the circuitry of the cosmos", as Master Initiate Lon Milo Duquette words it, and come into conscious contact with divine intelligence(s)."
"The Lodge itself is one of these vehicles.
Not unlike the T.A.R.D.I.S.the blue police box of the Dr.Who Television series, the Lodge defies time and space.
The ritual of the Blue Lodge gives the construction, layout, dimensions of the lodge structure as an oblong square facing east to west, which seems normal enough.
Within the Lodge structure we are told the dimension span from the canopy of heaven 
(the ceiling of the lodge being the blue canopy of heaven above, hence the name "Blue Lodge") to the center of the earth and to the east and west is as far as the eye can see.
Clearly the Lodge, like the T.A.R.D.I.S. defies the normal laws of physics by this description.
And like Dr.Who's vehicle we move between worlds within 
the Lodge.
Like the brain itself, the contents within are limitless."
Personally I see nothing inherently wrong with the symbols of Blue Lodge Freemasonry.
I've always liked the idea of a Great Architect designing and setting the universe in motion, whether real, or mythological.
But I have to say that considering the Freemasons were basically the Knight's Templar gone underground, since their split from Rome centuries ago, it seems rather strange that a double headed eagle is the key symbol of the Scottish Rite Freemasons, don't you think?
"The first mention of a double-headed eagle in the West dates from 1250, in a roll of arms of Matthew of Paris for Emperor Frederick II of the Holy Roman Empire
Usually depicted black on a gold background, it replaced the earlier single-headed eagle, and was subsequently adopted in the coats of arms of many German cities and aristocratic families. After the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in 1806, the 
double-headed eagle was retained by the Austrian Empire, and served also as the coat of arms of the German Confederation."

night at
Sirromet Winery, Brisbane
On a synchy side-note, I went to see Billy Idol play a gig at my local winery just after writing about Dr.Who's TARDIS above, and what should Billy say during the concert? 

"Let's take a ride on Dr.Who's TARDIS back to the seventies to this old hit"?!
"Cheap Trick" playing at A Day on the Green
Not only that, but the woeful Cheap Trick had a chessboard pattern as their backdrop.

Cheap Trick may have been good once, but at  A Day on the Green they lived up to their band name.
And these days who needs the "Dream Police" when the Empire can go through every keystroke you type at their NSA headquarters?
Talk about speaking of the Devil, I get up this morning after writing that line about the NSA and see this headline in the morning news.
"One dead, two hurt as vehicle tries to ram National Security Agency headquarters"
They say all roads lead to Rome, don't they?-)
Well, it is "The Year of the Goat/Sheep/RAM" after all, I guess;-)
Portrait of King Frederick II by Anton Graff,
painted in
Frater X writes in his book, 
"Make no mistake about it,the modern members of the Scottish Rite are all too eager to claim connection, lineage and authority to and from Fredrick the Great of Prussia."
Frederick the Great
Frederick the Great was also mentioned several times in Stanley Kubrick's 1975 film Barry Lyndon
In the film, he is referred to as "the great and illustrious Frederick" and his army is both praised and criticized, as in this quotation: 
"During the five years which the war had now lasted, the great and illustrious Frederick had so exhausted the males of his kingdom that he had to employ scores of recruiters who would hesitate at no crime, including kidnapping, to keep supplied those brilliant regiments of his with food for powder."
Although Frederick is never seen on screen.
 "The Seven Years' War took place between 1754 and 1763 with the main conflict being in the seven-year period 1756–1763. 
It involved most of the great powers of the time and affected Europe, North America, Central America, the West African coast, India, and the Philippines, however the two major sides were Great Britain and France.
In the historiography of some countries, the war is alternatively named after combatants in the respective theatres: 
the French and Indian War in the United States as well as among many English-speaking Canadians. 
In French-speaking Canada, it is known as the War of the Conquest, while it is called the Seven Years' War by others in English-speaking Canada (North America, 1754–1763), Pomeranian War (with Sweden and Prussia, 1757–1762), Third Carnatic War (on the Indian subcontinent, 1757–1763), and Third Silesian War (with Prussia and Austria, 1756–1763)."
Seven Years' War
But of course "The Secret War Inside Freemasonry" was just about to heat up.
Adam Weishaupt (1748–1830),
founder of the
Bavarian Illuminati
"The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, "enlightened") is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. 

(notice they used the dead language of the Roman Catholic Church - Latin?)
Historically, the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776
The society's goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life and abuses of state power. (so they said;-)
"The order of the day," they wrote in their general statutes, 
"is to put an end to the machinations of the purveyors of injustice, to control them without dominating them."
The Illuminati—along with Freemasonry and other secret societies—were outlawed through Edict, by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore, with the encouragement of the  
Roman Catholic Church(?), in 1784, 1785, 1787 and 1790.
In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed that they continued underground and were responsible for the French Revolution."
The thing is that the Illuminati was started in a Jesuit school by a so-called disgruntled trained Jewish student of theirs.
And maybe the Illuminati did start off with the stated principles in mind, who knows?
But if you read most accounts of that secret society, it's clear that it fizzled out.
But I'll bet the higher ups in the Old Roman Empire families thought this would be a good idea to form or infiltrate a secret society of their own.
Wouldn't be the first time they took something over and refitted it to their liking, would it?
Enter the Scottish Rite.
If you wanted a modern day Illuminati secret society type organization then you probably need look no further than the Scottish Rite, not to say that every member of the organization is an evil individual out to do harm, because I'm sure the majority at the bottom rungs are fine individuals probably looking to do some good in the world.
And the Scottish Rite isn't the only organization the Old Roman Empire has its claws into, who do you think started the CIA?
"The tumultuous early history of the Central Intelligence Agency is viewed through the prism of one man's life."
And I wonder where a mysterious bunch of guys who go around telling people to forget what you've seen in the sky, or on the ground in your backyard, would have been inspired to dress in black?
"A young Jesuit priest seeks to convert the Indian tribes in Canada while also trying to survive the harsh winter."
The Jesuits maybe?
Where did the Illuminati start again?
Oh, that's right, in a rich Jesuit school.
Notice any patterns forming?
And I'm not knocking the Roman Catholic Church here either, or the regular church goer, because my Nan was a rather semi-devout Catholic and loved it till her dying day and there are a lot of good things about the Church.
I had often thought about converting myself, from time to time, but it's the dogma I can't seem to get past, even though I like what I see as the spiritual side of the organization.
You only have to watch films like The Mission to see that the higher ups in the Church organization don't really care about your average Joe all that much.
So, the real truth of the matter is that the Angels and Demons are really doing battle from within these organizations and that the New World Order is really just the Old World Order trying to claim back its power and re-brand itself.
Like Frater X says in his book, the war inside Freemasonry is just a microcosm of the macrocosm that is taking place in the real world right now.
Some say the Empire never ended and that's probably true, but the reformation never ended either.
"We are blind until we see that in the human plan, 
nothing is worth the making that does not make the man.
Why build these cities glorious if man unbuilded goes? 
In vain we build the work unless the builder grows."
