Default A Mason's Conspiracy Theory: "Knights of Malta

Masonic conspiracy theory-ism, the Knights of Malta and the Roman Catholic Church.

Lucifer 2011


____________

Above: the Masonic equivalent of David Icke, the professional conspiracy theorist, Michael Baigent, who believes that the Catholic Masonic style organisation "The Knight's of Malta" are trying to "take over the world."
____________


I think that one could do an academic "study" on the growth of the modern conspiracy theory movement, and on Masonic conspiracy -theoryism, which seems to be a major business for the professional conspiracy theorists in the world of conspiracy publishing, with numerous best selling works on this subject, many of which are written by Masonic cultists themselves.

I think certainly the Freemasons can be defined generally as a cult of conspiracy theorists who generally operate as a gang of Capitalists and Anglo-American state terrorist, narco-terrorist collaborators and apologists. However a general study and analysis of the "conspiracy theory" movement with regards to "secret societies" and "Masonic" conspiracies would have to take into account all the many popular conspiracy theories; irrespective of whether they are true or not and include conspiracy theories promoted by Masonic authors themselves.

Secret Powers Behind Covert Groups



One of the main forefathers of the modern conspiracy theory movement I would think is almost certainly the prominent British Freemason Michael Baigent. If you ever get the chance to read the best-selling work "The Messianic Legacy (1986)" co-authored by Michael Baigent, and read the concluding chapter entitled "Secret Powers Behind Covert Groups" and the epilogue, one can see where many of the modern conspiracy theorists such as David Icke and others get "some" of their ideas from regarding secret societies controlling the world.

Baigent's (and his co-authors) conspiracy theory seems to be that the Capitalist world is ruled by an alliance between four secret societies, the Catholic church, the CIA, the Knights of Malta and the Priory of Sion.



Knight's of Malta Grand Master "Bertie"

Pope Benedict with "His Most Eminent Highness Fra' Andrew Willoughby Ninian Bertie, Prince and Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta, Most Humble Guardian of the Poor of Jesus Christ; aka Andrew Willoughby Ninian Bertie. "

The Priory of Sion is well refuted hoax, however the Knight's of Malta ( The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta ) is a rather strange Roman Catholic version of a Masonic type organisation whose Grand Master is accorded many of the privileges of a head of state; the order issues it's own passports, has it's own vehicle number plates in Rome, and some of it's members have the kind of diplomatic immunity offered to government ambassadors and embassy staff. At it's higher echelons, allegedly one has to be of aristocratic birth and be able to provide an aristocratic family coat of arms dating back 300 years. Baigent (et. al.) accuse them of being involved in international espionage and entwined with the CIA narco-terrorists.



So here we have Michael Baigent, a best selling professional Masonic conspiracy theorist and editor of the magazine "Freemasonry Today," who with his co-authors have accused a competing Catholic and Masonic style organisation, which is a "secret society," of attempting to "control" world events. So when the Freemasons are accused by Catholics, like the Catholic religious fanatic Watchy ( of Freemasonrywatch.org ) of attempting to "take over the world," just remember that long before Watchy ever appeared on the scene that it was a professional Masonic conspiracy theorist who was one of the pioneers of accusing another secret society, the Knights of Malta, of trying to take over the world.



Frankly I would not wish to suggest that all of Baigent's analysis of the Knight's of Malta is necessarily incorrect, despite some obvious flaws with his "Priory of Sion" conspiracy. Since almost all Capitalist gangs operate as "secret societies," many of them with religious initiation rituals, it seems to me that the world of gangster Capitalism "is" very much a world of various competing and co-operating secret societies, and by default almost all military regimes have partly "covert" organisations.

The "Knight's of Malta" and the CIA are just two of numerous Capitalist gangs which one has to consider in assessing the organisational and military structure of establishment Capitalism and state terrorism.



I should point out that the anti-Catholic views of Michael Baigent are not necessarily the views of all Freemasons and that the degree of "conspiracy theory-ism" varies from Mason to Mason, and that this "anti-Catholic" conspiracy theorism is not exclusive to Masonic conspiracy theorists, but is also the view of a number of Christian conspiracy theorists such as Eric John Phelps ( see http://www.vaticanassassins.org/ )





I should also point out that I think that "some" Knight's of Malta who are not even Roman Catholics, have been given honourary knighthoods (such as Nelson Mandela), and the head of the British order, Queen Elizabeth II, "probably" have very little to do with the cult are may simply be given knighthoods to increase the cult's prestige.

More on this subject, just Google "Knights of Malta conspiracy"

I simply present the articles below as typical of "conspiracy theory" articles on the Knight's of Malta.

Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 9 Num. 86
======================================
("Quid coniuratio est?")
http://www.sabbatarian.com/HeadlineN...acyNation.html
-----------------------------------------------------------------

KNIGHTS OF MALTA
================

(Source for the following is an article from Covert Action, Winter 1986, "The Sovereign Military Order of Malta," by Francoise Hervet.)

"Already in existence at the time of the first Crusade in 1099, in 1113 the Order of St. John was given its independence by Pope Pascal II, permitted to elect its own Grand Master, and soon the Order began military participation in the Crusades along with the
Knights Templar and Teutonic Knights. The Order of St. John recruited successfully among the European aristocracy and soon controlled extensive estates throughout the continent, assimilating those previously belonging to the Knights Templar which it had helped crush during the first two decades of the 14th century, with the Templar leadership burned alive as heretics."

The Order was driven from Jerusalem in 1187, fled to Acre, Cyprus, and finally to Rhodes. At Rhodes they set up a military dictatorship and for the first time were a sovereign territory. By 1530 they were driven from Rhodes and moved their headquarters to Malta. On that island they built a powerful naval force and fought many naval actions. The Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) was a major military force in the Mediterranean until their defeat by Napoleon in 1789. The Order was given protection by Russian Emperor Paul I, and by 1834 had moved its headquarters to Rome with help from Pope Leo XIII.

The American Association of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (Knights of Malta, SMOM) was founded in 1927. "By 1941 Francis Cardinal Spellman was listed as the 'Grand Protector' and 'Spritual Advisor' of the Order, with John J. Raskob as Treasurer. Members included John Farrell, then President of U.S. Steel, Joseph P. Grace, and John D. Ryan. In 1934 Raskob, inspired by the French fascist Croix de Feu, and working closely with Morgan Bank's John Davis, had been a principal financier in the plot to organize a fascist coup in the U.S. The plan failed when General Smedley Butler, who had been set up to lead the project, denounced it."

His Eminence Cardinal Spellman, "Grand Protector" of the Knights of Malta, worked with Pope Pius XII to help Nazi war criminals escape justice. According to Frederic Laurent (*L'Orchestre Noir. Pairs: Editions Stock, 1978),

All studies [of the post-WWII nazi networks] have shown the determining role played by the Catholic Church in the flight of war criminals. Since April 1943, following negotiations between Pius XII and the ultra reactionary American archbishop Francis Spellman, the Holy See became the clandestine center of Anglo-American espionage in
Italy. This collaboration in fact had begun the previous year... between Earl Brennan, a veteran of the American State Department and Gian Battista Montini, at the time a bishop and Under-Secretary of State at the Vatican. This close collaboration between the future [Pope] Paul VI and the American secret services continued after the war through the [CIA] intermediary James Angleton...

When the victorious Americans entered Rome in June of 1944, chief-General Mark Clark was made a Knight Grand Cross of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. On December 27, 1946 James Angleton received the Croci Al Merito Seconda Classe from the Knights of Malta. "On November 17, 1948 SMOM awarded one of its highest honors, the Grand Cross of Merit, to Reinhard Gehlen, the nazi chief of intelligence on the Soviet front. He was subsequently installed by the Americans as the first chief of West Germany's equivalent of the CIA, the *Bundesnachtrichtdienst* (BND: federal secret service), under West German Chancellor Adenauer, a devout Catholic who had received the Magistral Grand Cross personally from SMOM Grand Master Prince Chigi." In 1956, Clare Booth Luce of the *Time* magazine empire became a "Dame of Malta." (Clare Booth Luce is on the board of the Rev. Sun-Moon's Washington Times newspaper.)

Former CIA Director John McCone is shown to be a member of the Knights of Malta by their 1980 list. (The article by Hervet, used as the source for this information, has many other noteworthy persons listed as belonging to the Vatican military order of SMOM. The article should still be available from Prevailing Winds Research. I have their phone number as 8055668016 or write to PO Box 23511, Santa Barbara, CA 93121.)

"Freemasonry generally purports to be hostile to Catholicism, and conversely, the Vatican has at various times forbidden Catholics to join Masonic organizations. Nevertheless, in December of 1969 an exclusive meeting was held in the Rome office of Count Umberto Ortolani, the Ambassador of the Order of Malta to Uruguay, who has been called 'the brains' behind the fascist P-2 Masonic Lodge, which had been established in the mid-1960s. In addition to Ortolani, the meeting included only Licio Gelli, Roberto Calvi, and Michele Sindona."

The article from which the above has been taken is several pages long. Interested readers are referred to that article, "The Sovereign Military Order of Malta" by Francoise Hervet. (Covert Action, Winter 1986; or article may be available from Prevailing Winds, see phone and address listed previously in this issue of
CN.)

________________________




I think that it is important to point out that despite the Freemasons generally trying to refute the idea that the "Freemasons" are a secret society which are a major part of the International Dictatorship of Capitalism and the state terrorist establishment in general, that some Freemasons have "conspiracy theories" of their own regarding competing secret societies in the multi-billion dollar business of organised religious fanaticism.

Thumbs up

Good thread Lux.

Never came across that pic with Nelson Mandala being a Knight of Malta.

Here we are thinking that he was a fighter for truth and freedom when all along he was in the pocket of a Masonic conspiracy

I know your a self confessed communist , can you explain to me what a socialist/communist is doing being the head of a world bank ?

After all, the reasons to take down Strauss-Kahn, or DSK, as the world news-watching community quickly came to know him, were abundantly clear. The Socialist candidate was the primary challenger to weakened French President Nikolas Sarkozy—and in fact was expected to win the election rather easily.

They have even stopped calling these people democratic socialists , that pretence is long gone.

Mandela was showered with numerous awarards, and the title "Knight of Malta" was one of them; it seems to have been an honourary award which was probably more useful for the Knights of Malta" than for Mandela. I should point out that "Knight of Malta" is also a title which is bought and sold in York Rite Masonry, and that this is quite different to the Roman Catholic Knight of Malta organisation knighted Mandela.

With regards to Mandela veing a fighter for truth and freedom, Mandela and the ANC in general, apart from bringing an end to racial apartheid, have done very little for the people of South Africa in terms of social reforms. The ANC have been in power since 1994 and very little has changed for the African people economically; the ANC's "freedom charter" promised land reform, land for all landless people, the nationalisation of certain industries, etc., and they have essentially renaged on such promises. The ANC seem to be just another corrupt political party.

R1bn blinged, partied away
2010-04-09 00:29

Cape Town - Government has squandered more than R1bn of taxpayers' money over the past eight months on luxury vehicles, expensive hotels, banquets, advertising and other "wasteful expenditure", the DA said on Thursday.

"The total wasteful expenditure by the ANC... now stands at R1 004 000 000," Democratic Alliance parliamentary leader Atholl Trollip told journalists at a media conference at Parliament in Cape Town.

The party had been tracking such spending through its so-called wasteful expenditure monitor since July 26 last year.

Trollip said that under President Jacob Zuma's administration, "wasteful expenditure has been the order of the day".

DA monitoring of spending indicated government was "out of touch with economic realities in South Africa".

Cars, hotels, parties

According to a document tabled at the conference, government spending on new luxury vehicles totalled R47.4m; on luxury hotels and other "property-related expense scandals", R4.5m; and, on parties, banquets, conference and other such events, R203m.

Further, government had spent a total of R16.5m on "wasteful marketing, e-marketing and self-congragulatory advertising"; and, a total of R732.9m on "all other items of wasteful and fruitless expenditure".

The latter figure included an amount of R117.5m "that it cost the Gauteng provincial government to cancel their motorsport contract".

The document states that spending listed in the monitor "is only money that can be without a doubt considered wasteful squandering of public funds - be it on unnecessary glitz and partying, or on clear-cut and proven negligence or corruption".

'Conservative' figure

Trollip said the total figure was "very, very conservative".

Taking land away from white farmers and giving it to black farmers, such as in Zimbabe has been disasterous anyway. Modern farming anyway requires a great deal of organisation, investment, machinery etc., and government collectivisation and investment seems to me to be the best solution for the Third World.

I have no idea; he is certainly described as a "former Communist" but I don't know on what basis he has been described as that. He is also a member of the Masonic "Grand Orient de France."

I don't think that there is any "conspiracy" here; Strauss Kahn has a rather sleasy reputation;

Well France is comparatively a Socialist state, with free education, healthcare, welfare, etc., however it still has a long way to go to reach a Marxist definition of socialism.

What Marx and Engels suggested in the "Communist Manifesto" was the total nationalisation of banking; this was only a temporary suggestion however that is what happened in China, the Soviet bloc, Cuba, etc., where the money supply was controlled by the state, not be private bankers; in fact the nationalisation of the money supply is part of the agenda of both the far right and the far left, and it is proposed by numerous individuals such as David Icke, Alex Jones, Ross Perot, and by the socialist Left. There has to be some system of "rationing" in place to distribute resources, and either this system can be in the hands of gangster Capitalists or by the government. Ultimately however Marxist Communism is about the eventual total eradication of the money supply.

Well many people are "convinced" by bizarre conspiracy theories, but it does not mean that they are true.

Since Marx and Engels' "Communist Manifesto" called for the nationalisation of banking, such a scenario would entirely disempower the private bankers and instead empower governments. In fact in the former Soviet states, Maoist China and in Cuba, private banking was essentially outlawed.

Personally I not really a fan of the idea of having an all-powerful state Capitalist police state, but state Capitalism is a primary objective of most of the far political Left and Right, and most of the anti-NWO crowd.

Even right wing American Christians such as Alex Jones whose web site's description states "The web page of syndicated radio host Alex Jones. Conspiracy-tinted site containing strong opposition to socialism, communism, and the New World Order" is a proponent of Sate Capitalism (the nationalisation of the issuance of currency).

"Socialism" among the American Christian Right is commonly equated with Satanism, which is probably correct, since the Biblical ideology promotes the idea of both a slave society, the ownership of private property, an a dictatorship (monarchy) which produces a society of slaves and masters. The idea of a Socialist state which offers universal healthcare, free education, public services and welfare is certainly anti-Christian, however for a European who steps outside Socialist Europe into the gangster Capitalism of the Third World, I think that most Europeans would realise that relatively speaking, we live in economic heaven to a great degree.

Mandela was stuck in prison for many years and subject to all kinds of torture, no doubt other forms of mind control. He was a broken man who was then wheeled out on the world stage for the purpose of making South Africa look like it had changed for the better.

Basically he was just a figure head and given titles to show that he was part of the masonic/Vatican elite.

But as you have pointed out South Africa and other African nations are NO better off than they were before. I think the plan was to keep the Continent of Africa in a perpetual state of conflict.
