This is the Place: Brigham Young and the Holy Grail

 Previously: The Pilfering of the West

Welcome readers. I originally was going to make this post Part VI of "Upon This Land," but when I began researching for this topic I quickly realized there is enough material to merit an entire series... or maybe even a book. 

Hence, I've begun a new series I've dubbed "This is the Place." This first post will be a deep dive into Brigham's ancestry and how that may have played into some of his beliefs and antics as de facto governor of Utah and LDS Church president. How blood fits into the bigger picture, and what it all has to do with the legend of the Holy Grail. 

In subsequent posts I'll be covering the trek to Salt Lake Valley and the founding of Salt Lake City... and what might have already been there when Brigham and crew showed up.

I hope you all enjoy. Just know before proceeding that this could be a paradigm shifter, I know it certainly was for me when I began the descent into this rabbit hole.

With that, let's begin.   

There is no evidence that Brigham Young ever uttered the words "this is the place" when he stumbled into the Salt Lake Valley, half alive, following a scouting party led by Orson Pratt and John Brown.

Like many other faith-promoting myths now circulating within the LDS narrative, this one takes its place on the shelf of rumors that have morphed into gospel--the gospel of Brigham Young's supposed inspiration of being directly led to the Salt Lake Valley by the Lord Himself. An odd claim indeed for a man whose dying lament was the fact that he had never seen the Lord or received a single revelation for the Church. 

Yet it is myths like these that make up the stuff of history. Religious institutions bent on preserving their financial status and power rely on such myth to cement into the minds of their followers a subtle, yet legible link between mortals and gods. The human psyche, after all, must have its heroes, and those heroes must be qualified by a seemingly undying obedience to the true God of Heaven. 

But what if Brigham actually was inspired in his trek to find a place of refuge for him and the rest of the Twelve to practice their beloved craft we know as spiritual wifery? Indeed, what if this "Yankee Guesser" was directed to go to Salt Lake Valley long before he arrived there? 

The question is: inspired by what and directed by whom?

Unfortunately, there is no direct evidence suggesting that Brigham was was financed by the Rothschilds to found Salt Lake City. If smoking-gun evidence for such a plot exists, I suspect it is buried deep within the stone vaults of Granite Mountain.

Yet isn't it odd that Salt Lake Valley is now quickly morphing into a western hub for globalism? From the annexation by the UN of the Salt Palace to the West's first Smart City being built on the Point of the Mountain... well, things are escalating quickly. 

Have you ever noticed on a map that Salt Lake Valley is quite literally the dead center of the West, nestled comfortably within vast corridors of BLM lands owned by the Federal government? Besides it being a major railroad hub during the late 1800s, it is now the home of an NSA data collection center, an Army biological lab, and the future headquarters of Facebook, Google, Silicon Valley (now Silicon Slopes), and Goldman Sachs. 

The point is, Brigham Young must've had some real foresight in his choosing of such a place, appearing in 1847 as a glistening desert of sage brush and salt water.

What did he know? 

Well, we don't know what he knew. But despite the lack of smoking-gun evidence there are clues to follow. Subtle clues involving family histories, symbols housed within corporate logos, "chance" meetings with black-robed Jesuits, and the blatant involvement of high-level Mormons in Freemasonry. 

As it turns out, there is a case to built here, albeit one bread crumb at a time. 

In this and the posts that follow I am going to build on that case from what I've learned from my own research. I highly recommend that before proceeding you are at least awake to the fact the Brigham Young was a scoundrel, a usurper, and a sexual deviant, using his ill-gotten religious authority to legitimize full-on adultery and transform it into a sacrament. 

But was he really just some rogue Machiavellian who lucked his way into the chief seat of the Mormon hierarchy? Or was he a calculated infiltrator who hailed from an elitist blood line, who in fact created the Mormon hierarchy and used it to advance the purposes of the Vatican?

Just a few months ago I wrote a piece espousing the theory that Brigham Young became an empire to himself much like king Noah in the Book of Mormon. As always I added the caveat that of course I could be wrong on my hypothesis. 

I now believe I was wrong. 

Although I believe much of this history has been suppressed, there appears to be a story emerging out of the remains of a fallen civilization, a story of intrigue, murder, and cover up, coupled with Jesuit complicity and financed by powerful banking dynasties. 

It is almost as if someone knew how important Salt Lake City would one day be to the New World Order. Someone quietly directing things from behind the scenes.

Before we proceed there is another caveat that I need to make that deserves considerable emphasis. Some of the sources I will be using to connect these dots are authors that lump Joseph Smith in with Brigham and the rest of the Mormon Masons. This is simply not true. 

Joseph was not a part of any of it. 

Like many of you, I believe his death was most likely orchestrated by Brigham and other conspirators like Heber C. Kimball, John Taylor, and Willard Richards. 

When it comes to Joseph we must make a choice. Was he who he said he was or not? God has laid out the criteria that we must judge this prophet by. He has vouched for Joseph, and laid the burden of discernment upon us. Here are His words to Joseph while he was rotting in Liberty Jail:
The ends of the earth shall inquire after your name, and fools shall have you in derision, and hell shall rage against you, while the pure in heart, and the wise, and the noble, and the virtuous shall seek counsel, and authority, and blessings constantly from under your hand. And your people shall never turn against you by the testimony of traitors, and although their influence shall cast you into trouble, and into bars and walls, you shall be had in honor. And but for a small moment, and your voice shall be more terrible in the midst of your enemies than the fierce lion, because of your righteousness, and your God shall stand by you forever and ever. (T&C 139:7)
With that said let's dive right in. Our first clue in this quest lies in the origins of Brigham's ancestry. As it turns out, he may have been more than a humble carpenter before he joined the church in 1832. Brigham was descended from a bloodline that some perceive as royal, stemming all the back to the Merovingian kings of France. 

The Brigham Family

Brigham, the first name given to Mr. Young, is actually the last name of his great-grandmother on his mother's side, Sibil Brigham. The name Sibil is derived from Sibylla, which is a Greek word meaning "prophetess," or "female soothsayer." Sibil, who lived from 1718 to 1807, was the great-granddaughter of Thomas Brigham, who lived from 1603 to 1653. 

The Brigham family has many famous descendants in history and today. Here are some of the recognizable names:

  • Actors/Actresses/singers, ect.: Josh Brolin, Geena Davis, Paul Walker, Liv Tyler, Humphrey Bogart, Tim Robbins, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jane Fonda, James Taylor, Dennis Wilson (Beach Boys), Kim Kardashian, Bette Davis, Tommy Lee, Cindy Crawford.
  • Presidents/politicians/generals/bureaucrats, etc.: George W. Bush, Cavin Coolidge, Gerald Ford, Sara Palin, General William Tecumseh Sherman, General Joseph Hooker, Allen and John Foster Dulles, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush. 
  • Businessmen, inventors, poets, etc.: Eli Whitney (inventor of the Cotton Gin), Averell Harriman (son of railroad magnate E.H. Harriman), Bill Gates, and Emily Dickenson (poet).
Honestly, if the only names appearing on this list were George Bush and Bill Gates that would be enough to arouse our suspicions, but General Sherman, the Dulles Brothers, what is going on here? 

The late comedian George Carlin used to say about the world elites, "it's a big club, and you ain't in it." But what if it is also a big family, like a "royal" family? What if it is all about the blood? What if the phrase "keepin' it in the family" is more than just a reference to hillbillies in West Virginia? What if the latter is the modus operandi of Luciferian elites the world over?  

I think we may be onto something here. Discovering who Brigham Young was may hold the key to finding out why he was so obsessed with polygamy and blood atonement. What was it about the blood that he was so interested in?

According to Fritz Springmeier, author of Bloodlines of the Illuminati, all LDS and RLDS presidents have been descendants of the Merovingian kings. This is a bold claim, but is there some truth to what he is espousing?

Interestingly, Springmeier has more ancestral information on Brigham Young than any other Mormon leader, and has endeavored to trace his bloodline all the way back to the Merovingian kings in his other book, Be Wise As Serpents. This is a fascinating genealogy to say the least.

Springmeier claims that Brigham is descended from multiple Merovingian bloodlines, including two other families, the Wheelers and the Collins. The latter hail from Massachusetts, keep this in mind in part II when we talk about Brigham's frequent trips to Boston. 

Click here to view Springmeier's genealogy of Brigham Young. When you get to the names such as Clodius, Dagobert, and Charlemagne, we're talking about the Merovingian, or Frankish kings.

Who exactly were these people? And why are they important to the elites? Before we move on with Brigham's trek to Utah, we need to 
cover some of the Merovingian legends, history, and symbols they used. After doing so, some of Brigham's antics in early Mormon history might make a bit more sense.

The Divine Blood of Kings

This information comes from a book written in the 1980s by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh entitled, Holy Blood, Holy Grail. As we descend down this rabbit hole keep in mind that these authors believe that Jesus Christ escaped crucifixion and fled to France with Mary Magdalene where the two had a surviving progeny. The bloodline of which found its way into King Childeric, the first Merovingian king of the Francs.

Obviously, I don't believe the premise. I believe that Christ died on the cross just as the scriptural prophecies predicted. But remember, sometimes more important than the truth is what the elites actually believe. And they believe this nonsense. They believe that they have royal blood which endows them with a "right to rule." If they can trace their lineage through Jesus Christ, then they can trace it through the line of David, which they believe entitles them to kingship.


Fortunately, the Book of Mormon sheds some light on where this idea of royal blood (with ruling rights) actually comes from. It is a tenet of the Mystery Schools, described by a Nephite initiate named Giddianhi. He totally let the cat out of the bag here in his epistle to Lachoneus. As you'll recall, he stated that he was the governor of the "secret society of Gadianton," the works of which were of "ancient date," and known by him "to be good."

What is he describing? The religion of Luciferianism (The Great and Abominable Church of the Devil, Mystery Babylon, the Whore, etc.). And then at the end of the epistle he reveals the true purpose of the secret society's existence, so that his people "may recover their rights and government." And there it is, their so-called right to rule. 

But wait, there is yet another place in the Book of Mormon that speaks of this very thing. Among all the things that captain Moroni had to deal with during the war with the Lamanites, perhaps the worst was the problem of the Kingmen, who like modern scheming leaders, were using the distraction of war as a means to implement a coup in government. In Mormon's narration of this event he casually adds a key phrase to his description of these men, as if he assumes we already know what he is going to say. 

He briefly mentions almost as an afterthought that these men "professed the blood of nobility." What a loaded statement! Volumes could be written on that one sentence. Yet Mormon assumes we already know what he is talking about, which tells me that Mormon knew much more about this subject than he was letting on (after all, he did have full access to the plates of Lemhi that contained the secret plans of old). 

This was a clue, deliberately placed in the text to get us to think. To establish a typology, to get us used to looking for patterns. Pattern recognition is, after all, a major component of IQ testing. The scriptures are loaded with patterns, and in my opinion, God uses these patterns to teach us. One example, for instance, would be the pattern of ascension that all prophets experience before they have an audience with Christ. God teaches us through parables, patterns, and repetition. This is how we are wired. 

If we've lost the ability to recognize patterns it does not mean we are not intelligent. It simply means that the public educational system has stifled something that is inherent in all of us. Public education is geared toward socialism and informational regurgitation, not pattern recognition. They are feeding you a narrative but don't want you to think about how it came to be. Churches do the same thing. Why do you think General Conference talks are regurgitated so much in local LDS meetings? 

As a society we have lost the ability to think for ourselves. As Arthur Fletcher once opined, "a mind is a terrible thing to waste."

For the rest of this and subsequent posts, forget everything you've learned in your formal education about world and church history. Proceed with a tabula rasa (blank slate) and cast away your preconceived notions. Remember, the winners of wars and the victors (think Hunger Games) over fallen civilizations get to re-write history, and they can make up whatever stories they want. 

And in our modern metaverse, now facilitated through AI, the historical narrative can be fictionalized with unprecedented articulation. They can thicken the plot, generate photos and depictions, add fictional characters for literary flavor, and declare total and complete nonsense as historical fact. 

They are banking on the probability that your educational training will not allow you to actually think about what you're reading. They are hoping that you skip over the declared absurdities without a hint of skepticism or critical thinking. But I digress. 

Let's get back to the Merovingian kings.

Like all good bedtime stories, the legend of the Merovingian kings is enshrouded in myth and enigma. It begins with Merovee, or Merovech, a supernatural figure with two fathers. After his mother was impregnated by King Clodio, she went swimming in the ocean and was impregnated a second time by a "beast of Neptune," which was similar to a Quinotaur (a Quinotaur has the head of bull and the body of a fish). 

So we have a figure here who has the blood of kings mixed with the supernatural. You could even call him a priest-king, is this beginning to ring any bells? Think of all the mythological legends about hybrids; Aquaman comes to mind.  

Merovech is made up of two words: mero, meaning "rumour, news, famous," and vech meaning "fight." Another way of saying it would be "rumors of wars." 

Have I got your attention now?

Do you see what they are doing with these myths and legends? They are messing with you. These are psychological operations designed to get in your head. Think about that next time you watch a Marvel movie. 

Speaking of heroes, Merovech was said to possess superhuman abilities because of what? His blood. Blood is the key here. Keep that in mind. This concept goes all the way back to Cain. Lucifer is directing his followers to establish bloodlines. This is the Satanic imitation of something that I'll point out later. 

Like the priests of Pharaoh, the Merovingian kings were associated with the divine. They were known as magicians, sorcerers, "occult adepts, initiates in arcane sciences," and "practitioners of esoteric arts..." (Holy Blood, Holy Grail, p. 181. KE). 

Wait a minute... so you're saying these guys were Mystery School initiates?

Hold the phone. Looks like the psyops just got a little more intense.

But there's more. They also had "phenomenal longevity," through an "arcane spell." Longevity eh, didn't Henry Kissinger just pass away at the ripe old age of 100 just a month ago (who else can you think of who is nearing that age?)? 

And speaking of the word spell, why do we use it to describe the process of correctly numbering letters in a word? Is our entire language under a spell? And why do they call it a spelling bee?  

Did you know that one of the symbols of the Merovingian kings was the bee? Merovech's dynastic son was named Childeric I, and in his tomb they found 300 golden bees adorned with garnet inlays. What did the bees symbolize? 

Divine feudalism

Bees live in top-down hierarchical societies with designated social classes that cannot overlap. Worker bees stay worker bees forever. There is no advancing in bee colonies. 

Now, let’s look at the name of Merovech's son, Childeric. Two words: child and eric. Is it a coincidence that the word child is the root of the name? Do not children compete in spelling bees at the behest of their teachers/overlords. Again, look at the language of the myth, look at the words. What are they communicating to us? Is it something like this?:

We're children under a spell who need divine leaders to control us

They are belittling us with words in our own language that we use mindlessly everyday. I just watched the new Hunger Games movie a few weeks ago, and what was the main theme? Human beings are animals that need to be corralled. These humanistic and Darwinian messages are everywhere and shoved right in our faces.

Now I'm going to ask a rhetorical question: why, oh why, did Brigham Young adopt the beehive as a symbol for Utah? Just keep that in mind as we proceed.

The legend continues that the Merovingian kings were born with a distinctive mark, what looked like a red cross either over the heart or between the shoulder blades. This should ring some bells, because there is a famous secret society who sports the same symbol: the Rosicrucian Order. The French word Rosicrucian literally means "rosy" or "red cross." And where have we seen the Red Cross today?

Things that make you go hmm...

What's next? Long hair that gave them superstrength like Samson? 

Actually, yes. They were known as the "Long-Haired Kings," and in 754 A.D., Childeric III was deposed and while in prison the Pope ordered his hair to be cut. (Honestly, they could've been a little more original here. The Old Testament had first dibs on the long hair thing.)

What about wizards? Can I get a wizard inserted into this story? Oh wait, there already is one, his name was Merlin. Merlin and Merovech begin with the same three letters, what a coincidence, and Merlin just happened to be a contemporary of these kings. The word mer has a very interesting etymology, it means "to rub away," or "harm." Or, in another word, death

Ok, now the game… uh, I mean myth makers are just being belligerent. Apparently, all their myths lead to death. Death to who? The profane? The tributes?

If Merlin was a contemporary then that makes King Arthur one too. You know the story, Disney made it palatable to children in their classic cartoon, The Sword in the Stone. But were Merlin and King Arthur real? There is no evidence either one ever existed. So what does it all mean?

Well, he had his twelve knights of the roundtable... we've definitely heard the number twelve before. And did not Cecil Rhodes have his roundtable as well? Arthur plus the twelve knights equals thirteen, the number of "perfect" government. In antiquity, this meant the sun and the twelve constellations. 

So what does Merlin represent? Why, the Mystery Schools of course (secretly mentoring the young kings behind the scenes). Disney repeated the story in The Lion King, using Rafiki the monkey to represent the mystery adepts. And it just so happens that the lion is also a symbol used by another group with ties to the Merovingian kings, along with a chimera that is part lion and part fish. More on that later. 

The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail have found a link between the name Arthur and the Merovingian kings in the form of yet another animal: the bear. They assert that according to the "Prieure" (Priory of Scion) documents, the Merovingians can be traced to ancient Greece, and more specifically, Arcadia. 

Arcadia comes from the word Arkades, which means "People of the Bear." And here we have yet another bedtime story: the legend of Arkas and Callisto. In Greek mythology, Zues had an affair with a mortal named Callisto, who conceived and bore the child Arkas. When Zues' wife discovered the infidelity she turned Callisto into a "Great Bear" and forced her to wander in the woods. 

When her son Arkas (whom she longed to be with) was hunting one day, he came across her and attempted to kill her with his bow, not knowing it was is own mother. But at the last minute Zeus swooped in and placed them both in the constellations before he could release his arrow. We know them today as Ursa Major and Minor, the Big and Little Dippers.

And if you're wondering if Disney covered this legend as well, they most certainly did. The name of the Pixar animation was Brave, coming out in 2012. They just can't resist the urge to indoctrinate our children in all the lore of the Mystery Schools. 

Interestingly enough, the Welsh word for bear is arth, where we get the name Arthur. So here we have the myth of the Merovingians (hailing from Arcadia) and the myth of king Arthur converging in a single animal: the Bear. Why would the myth makers intertwine these two tales? 

Perhaps to tell us who they are. 

The answer may come from the New Testament. John described the Beast as having what? The form of a leopard, the feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion (Revelations 4:6, RE). Whoever the myth makers are, they make up the feet of the Beast, which means they literally carry all of its weight.  

Would it surprise you at this point if you found out that the Merovingians were polygamous? 

The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail include a quote from another author named Wallace Hadrill, who wrote a book entitled, The Long-Haired Kings. Basically, the Merovingians took any woman they wanted, whether queen or slave, and whatever children were born out of such debauchery were grafted into the royal blood line. Here is how Hadrill describes it:
Why was it [polygamy] tacitly approved by the Franks themselves? We may here be in the presence of ancient usage of polygamy in a royal family--a family of such rank that its blood could not be ennobled by any match, however advantageous, nor degraded by the blood of slaves... It was a matter of indifference whether a queen were taken from a royal dynasty or from among courtesans... The fortuna of the dynasty rested in its blood and was shared by all who were of that blood. (Holy Blood, p. 185-86)

Does this not sound like Greek mythology? The gods can sleep with any other goddess or mortal they choose but the blood of the gods endures, only bolstering the mortals it flows through and never being degraded.

Did Brigham Young believe this nonsense? Is that why he spread his seed through dozens of women? Did he believe his blood was divine? Did he realize that he was a descendant of these "priest-kings"? Is this why he justified taking any other man's wife as his own, simply because he had more so-called "authority"? Indeed, did he use the ruse of priesthood “authority” to hide his true beliefs that his blood was royal and even supernatural? 

These are interesting questions to ponder. Brigham Young is somewhat of an enigma. Especially to those of us who believe that he corrupted the Restoration that Joseph began. I think the Lord will continue to reveal more about who this man really was so that eventually those who question the LDS narrative will have all the facts before them.

As a side note, there is a herculean effort now underway at clearing Joseph Smith's good name from polygamy and Freemasonry once and for all. Justin Griffin did a recent podcast where he named many of the participants, past and present, who have and are currently aiding in that effort:

There is just one more thing to cover before I get into the trek to Salt Lake, well, maybe two. We must follow what happened in the Merovingian line from Clovis to Dagobert. This will lay the foundation of how the Roman Catholic Church came to rule all of Europe. It began with a pact between Church and State, with the Merovingians acting as the muscle for the Pope long before Ingatius of Loyola created his Jesuit Order. 

Clovis Before the Jesuits

When Constantine made Christianity the Roman State religion it was still factionalized. Centralization of authority was a slow process that took time, yet Constantine noticed that the transition to State religion was easily facilitated by the factions looking to centralize authority in local bishops. This began with the Episcopalian movements and spread into other groups. After three centuries, the brazen independence of primitive Christianity was beginning to phase itself out. (See The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America: Christian Self Government, compiled by Verna M. Hall, p. 18) 

It wasn't until the late 300s that the Bishop of Rome began to call himself the Pope, but he was still in competition with other bishops throughout Europe. A century later the Roman Church came up with a stratagem, they would solicit the help of secular authorities to cement and centralize their power. They would endeavor to enforce their priestcraft by the sword

But this would require entering into a pact, for such an aggrandizement would necessitate a quid pro quo. In the late 400s, King Clovis (Grandson of Merovee) was approached by Saint Remy, and a series of secret meetings ensued. Clovis had been busy building up his kingdom and annexing adjacent kingdoms through brutal domination, and was only a stone's throw away from becoming the most powerful ruler in western Europe. 

He needed the Church to complete his power play, and the Church needed him to expand its spiritual hegemony. In 496 a deal was struck. The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail describe the arrangement as follows:
It would ensure the Church's survival and establish that Church as the supreme spiritual authority in the West. It would consolidate Rome's status as an equal to the Greek Orthodox faith based in Constantinople. It would offer a prospect of Roman hegemony and an effective means of eradicating the hydra heads of history. And Clovis would the means of implementing these things--the sword of the Church of Rome, the instrument whereby Rome imposed her spiritual dominion, the secular arm and palpable manifestation of Roman power. 

In return Clovis was granted the title of "Novus Constantinus"--"New Constantine." In other words, he was to preside over a unified empire-- a "Holy Roman Empire." (Holy Blood, p. 187)

Here we may have the true symbolism of the Sword in the Stone. Clovis and the Merovingians being the sword and the Roman Catholic Church, feigning authority from the "Rock of Peter," representing the stone. 

Clovis was adorned in the cloak of religion and baptized publicly, and to this day French children know him as the king responsible for converting the Franks to Christianity.

But it was all a ruse to create a superstate under the auspices of religion, a monstrosity known as the Old World Order. The Book of Mormon would call it exactly as it was: an Order of Nehors endeavoring to enforce their priestcraft by the sword. Nothing more.

Did not Brigham Young endeavor to the do the same by making himself Church president and de facto governor of Utah? 

And do we not read that the Mystery Religions of old desired to control the three fishes that consumed the phallus of Osiris, symbolically representing the Church, the State, and the mob?

Getting back to the story, a century and half later Clovis' descendant Dagobert I was murdered, and his son, Dagobert II, heir to the throne, was kidnapped by the conspirators and consigned to death. But the problem was that neither Grimoald (the mayor of the palace) nor the bishop of Poitiers, his co-conspirator, had the stomach to kill the child. 

So young Dagobert was exiled to Ireland where he, with the help of some Northumbrian princes, received his formal education. Later he befriended the Bishop of York, who secretly assisted him in reclaiming his throne. 

Does this story sound familiar? A king is murdered, and his heir to the throne is exiled and/or left for dead. But through the help of friends he learns who he is and comes back to reclaim his rightful place as king. This is the story of The Lion King.

It makes one wonder, who is writing this "his-story"? Honestly, can we believe any of it? It seems like the myth makers are telling the same stories over and over again. But I digress. 

Dagobert II neglected his pact with the Roman Church and focused on increasing his own power, and as a consequence, the latter was complicit in an assassination of the king while he was hunting in the woods. It seemed that they didn't need the Merovingian kings as muscle for the Pope anymore, instead relying on their own in-house thugs to accomplish their designs. And to add insult to injury, the Church canonized the name of Dagobert and made him a Saint.

Ah the perfect ruse, kill your enemy and then turn him into a martyr. This scheme certainly worked brilliantly for Brigham Young. 

After Dagobert the his-story of the Merovingians gets murky. It was rumored that he had a son with a Visigoth wife whom they named Sigisbert, whose bloodline has trickled down to the current day. But the official story is that the bloodline was "lost," kind of like the Big Lost River in Idaho, dumping itself into the aquifer in the desert and eventually emptying into the Snake River, but no one knows where. 

Remnants of this myth have percolated into our modern popular culture. Most of us know about the Holy Grail because of Monty Python's classic 1975 parody, which I might add was hilarious. Python outlines the story of King Arthur's search for the Holy Grail. You know, the cup that caught the blood of Christ at the crucifixion. It, like the bloodline of the Merovingians, was also lost, and needed to be found, because it possessed magical powers and supernatural properties.

If you missed Python's film don't worry, you can catch George Lucas and Steven Spielberg's version released in 1989, the American classic Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. This one parrots the exoteric legend, that the Grail is the cup of a carpenter, granting whoever finds and drinks from it "eternal life." And oh ya, the bad guys are the Nazi's, who were also looking for it. 

As it turns out, that part really happened, but the Nazis knew that it wasn't a "cup." It was something for more Aryan, if you know what I mean. 

Do you remember the boat scene in the movie when Indy is fighting an entire gang of assassins who have sworn to protect the Grail? The leader of the group tells Indy, and us, exactly who he is: a member of an ancient Brotherhood called the Cruciform Sword. 

What was Lucas doing here? What was he trying to communicate? Remember when the guy opens his shirt and shows Indy the tattoo on his chest? The one that looks like a churched-up cross, similar to the mark the Rosicrucians had on their chest? And as you'll recall from earlier in this post, the Merovingians were also said to have had such a mark. Here is the scene in case you forgot:

So if not a cup then what exactly is the Holy Grail? And why has it been so enshrouded in enigma? What are the myth makers trying to tell us through this legend?

Grail, in earlier writings, was called the Sangreal, or the Sangraal. According to the authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a the French version was Sang Raal, or Sang Real, which means Sang Royal, or, wait for it... Royal Blood (See p. 388-89).

Were not the Nazis trying to establish a superior race known as Aryan? They too were obsessed with blood and bloodlines. What George Lucas doesn't tell you in the Indiana Jones movies is that many American corporations were collaborators with the Nazis. If you don't believe me then read this post about Standard Oil.

And that brings us back to Brigham Young, who was also obsessed with blood, claiming that it was a "mercy" to have your blood spilled upon the ground if you committed certain sins. Constantly telling the saints not to mix their blood with the "rebellious" Gentile blood. And claiming that Joseph Smith was "entitled to the keys of the priesthood according to blood." And making similar claims for himself:
You will never see a man called to preside in the Priesthood of God on the earth who is not purely of the blood of Abraham. You may set every man down to be a pure descendant of Abraham, who holds a position in this Kingdom, and holds the keys of, and officiates in, the ordinances of the Holy Priesthood. Either God has not called him, or he is a pure offspring of faithful Abraham. When strangers and aliens are talked of, we talk of Gentiles. (Stated in Conference, Oct. 9 of 1853, quoted in The Complete Discourses of Brigham Young, p. 260)

Do you see what Brigham did there? He flipped the Gospel around on its head so that he could incorporate the idea of royal blood into the narrative. Let's compare that statement with what the Book of Mormon says about how God is no respecter of persons:

And he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness, and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen, and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile. (2 Nephi 11:17, RE, emphasis added)

The further we dive into Brigham Young, the more anomalies we find. Was he substituting the phrase "Holy Priesthood" for Holy Grail? Did he know what line of kings he descended from? Was he, like Cain, attempting to imitate God's true Holy Order and establish a hierarchical secret combination? 

Indeed, was Brigham far more wicked than we give him credit for? Was he like unto Cain, the very man he claimed to have had a cursed seed? Having had a knowledge of the truth and then rebelling against it?

Before moving onto to Brigham's trek West, there is another aspect to his-story we must look into: the importance of symbolism. Symbols are how the elite communicate who they are to each other. It is another language altogether, one strictly hidden (albeit in plain sight) from the profane. Did Brigham use symbols that identified him with the elites of the Old World? 

Indeed he did.

The "Lion of the Lord"

Have you ever wondered why Brigham was referred to as the "Lion of the Lord?" Where did the appellation come from? Have you ever looked at the statue of the lion adorning the Lion House at Temple Square and wondered why it was put there? 

A lion has long been associated with royalty, so why did Brigham use this symbol to mark the living quarters of himself and his harem of wives? If you look close at the lion it resembles the Belgic Lion, or the Leo Belgicus, the lion used in old heraldry maps of the low countries of Europe: the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, and part of Northern France (where the Merovingians hail from). Check out the image below:

As a side note, this part of France is close to Luxembourg and the Rhineland of Germany, which is where another elite family, the Rockefellers, are from. 

This Dutch lion was used in all kinds of European coats of arms all throughout the middle ages. If you type in lion heraldry and coats of arms on a search engine, you'll find that nearly all the old heraldry symbols of Europe pretty much look the same, as if one entity is directing and controlling them all. 

The most common coat of arms found is similar to the one that the Dutch East India Company used. Wait a minute, a corporation used a coat of arms? Yes, which means that they were representing a superior power that was secretly directing them. 

Who was it? Why, the Vatican of course. The Dutch were once the muscle behind the Vatican's antics in Europe and around the world. The Dutch East India Company was a corporation, incorporated under the Vatican, and during the early colonization of America, it was worth about ten trillion. In other words, it was the Blackrock and Vanguard of its day. (No wonder the American colonists vehemently protested this company). 

So who were the Dutch? Weren't they just harmless bakers who gave us the Belgian Waffle? No, they were the Black Venetian Nobility, the shadow feudal lords who dominated Europe for centuries. In my opinion, they are the descendants of the Merovingians, the "lost" bloodline of Frankish royalty. 

As you'll recall from earlier in this post, the bee, a symbol used by the Merovingians, had to do with "divine feudalism." Feudalism is corporatism and fascism, the very thing the Dutch East India Company was involved in. Let's have a look at its coat of arms:

There is some very interesting symbolism displayed here. Remember, symbols are how Lucifer and the Satanic elite identify themselves. 

Notice the chimeral lions (lion heads with mermaid tails) holding up (supporting) a headless knight. 

The lions are a mix of Venetian and Merovingian royalty, which is why I believe the two are related genealogically. The upper half resembles the Belgic Lion used in Dutch heraldry that we just went over, the lower half is the same tail displayed by the Merovingian Quinotaur, half bull and half mermaid or fish. It looked something like the image below.

And what about the headless knight? 

This is where it gets really interesting. The headless knight represents shadow government. Today we call it the Deep State; the silent controllers acting behind the scenes manipulating world events, feeding us a false historical narrative, and using technology to brainwash, control, and distract us. 

Is it a coincidence that Brigham Young just happened to use two of the most blatant symbols of Merovingian and Venetian power, the bee and the lion? 

At this point I no longer believe in coincidences.

There is yet another angle to why Brigham is associated with the lion. This one has to do with his close friend Heber C. Kimball. Heber was involved in Freemasonry long before he ever joined the nascent Mormon Church. As it turns out, he wasn't just your run of the mill Mason, he was a Master Mason who had been initiated into the advanced degree of the Royal Arch. 

The Royal Arch is above and beyond the 33rd degree of Freemasonry. It is a reference to the constellation of Leo, the lion. The Royal Arch is the place where the sun is highest and most powerful in the northern hemisphere. This happens on June 21st during the summer solstice. It has long been associated with the "divine right of kings" because the sun, representing God or light, appears higher and brighter in Leo than in any other constellation. It is represented below by the MGM Lion we are all so familiar with:

Notice the circle around the lion's head. That represents the Zodiak. The very top of the circle is the arch, or the constellation of Leo. This is why you always see arched doors and windows in old world buildings. 

If you know what you're looking for you can find this symbolism everywhere. Another place we find it is in the newest logo of the LDS Church. I wrote about that here.

Heber joined the Milnor lodge in Victor, NY on September 14th of 1825. There he entered York Rite Freemasonry and its first three degrees of Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft, and Master Mason. He later petitioned the Excelsior Chapter at Canandiagua for the Royal Arch degree and was accepted. 

Another name to keep in mind here is Abraham Jonas. 

He was the Grand Master over the Illinois area and the man who helped to organize the "Mormon" lodges around Nauvoo. Jonas, a Jewish lawyer, was a friend of Abraham Lincoln, and a member of the Illinois legislature. Ronald Meldon Karren, in his book, The Exoneration of Emma, Joseph, and Hyrum, highly suspects Jonas as being the man who added Joseph's name to the Masonic rolls posthumously, or even while he was still alive.

Karren also points out the fact that it was Heber who was assisting Jonas in establishing lodges and helping to incorporate Freemasonry into the Secret Chamber in Nauvoo. Karren includes the following quote from Stanley Kimball's book, Heber C. Kimball: Mormon Patriarch and Pioneer
Heber served in the Nauvoo Lodge as Junior Deacon, and by checking certain passwords and grips, was responsible for seeing that "no cowans and eavesdroppers," or non-Masons, were admitted to lodge meetings. He also carried messages from the Worshipful Master in the East to the Senior Warden in the West and elsewhere about the lodge as required. Five Mormon, or largely Mormon, Masonic Lodges were established in the area: the Nauvoo, the Nye (named after Jonathan Nye, past Grand Master of Vermont), and the Helm (named after another Grand Master) lodges in Nauvoo proper, as well as the Rising Sun Lodge, No. 12, in Montrose, Iowa, and the Eagle Lodge in Keokuk, Iowa. The lodge hall in Nauvoo was considered to be the best in the West. (Quoted in Karren, p. 254)

Here is where it gets interesting. 

Heber began using scriptural language such as "Holy Order" to describe the fraternity of Mormon Freemasons, which, in my opinion, was the classic mingling of scripture with the philosophies of men that we hear about in the Temple ceremony. 

He claims to have been initiated into the Holy Order on May 4th of 1842, the same day that Brigham Young (and others) supposedly received the temple endowment from Joseph Smith in upper room of the Red Brick Store (See Karren, p. 128).

If you want to find out all the holes in that story, watch this episode of Michelle Stone's podcast, 132 Problems:

They also referred to this Holy Order as The Quorum of the Anointed (eerily similar to the Second Anointing we have heard that the Q15 participate in today). Karren concludes that another name for this group was the Secret Chamber. 

So what is going on here? 

We have what appears to be an attempt, like Cain of old, of imitating the Lord's Holy Order and morphing it into a secret combination. It appears that Heber was the mastermind behind this, which begs the question:

Was Heber Brigham Young's assigned handler? 

In my last post I pointed out that Teddy Roosevelt was a descendant of the Black Venetian Nobility, yet he was assigned a handler in the form of Gifford Pinchot, the Skull and Bones acolyte who pushed for Federal land grabs behind the scenes. 

This begs another question: are those of royal blood assigned handlers to keep them in line? To keep them from straying from the agenda of the controllers? 

An interesting fact about the Merovingian's is that, although they were considered divine kings, they did not participate in the "low" duties of ruling. They left that up to the palace mayors and other subordinates. Like world leaders today they only appeared to rule, while the faceless Party (Big Brother) ran things from behind the scenes. 

Was Heber one of these behind the scenes administrators for King Brigham?

Perhaps. It at least appears that he was Brigham's Masonic mentor. 

In part II we'll cover more of Brigham's story, his trips to Boston during the early 1840s, and his meeting with a Jesuit priest at Winter Quarters in 1846. But Before concluding this post there is just a little more to say about the Holy Grail. 

So how do we know what part of the Merovingian story was myth and what was reality? Is the story of the Holy Grail a corruption and imitation of something that was actually divine? Or it is all myth? 

Often, as I write these posts, after digging and scraping into as much obscure research that I can find, and just after I think I have the whole rabbit hole figured out, a truth bomb is dropped on me and I have to start over and view the entire thing from a completely different perspective. 

A friend dropped such a bomb on me recently and blew my mind. Now my brains are all scrambled up, so bear with me as offer this alternative to the Babylonian version of the Holy Grail. 

The True Grail

Logic and reason tell us that Jesus was married, I mean, if marriage is ordained of God, would not God Himself also comply with this divine law? Would not He set the example? If the Father in Heaven is married to a Heavenly Mother, would not Jesus follow His example? After all, He does nothing but what He sees His Father do.

Have you ever wondered at whose wedding it was that Jesus turned water into wine? Have you ever thought that, just maybe, it was His own? I am beginning to believe that the marriage of Cana was a celebration of the union between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. 

There is one more bedtime story to relate here, and this one just might be the actual truth. As the legend goes, Joseph of Arimathea was personally asked by Jesus to escort his wife Mary to safety after His death on the cross. Joseph accepted, and took the pregnant Mary to Egypt where they stayed with some friends temporarily (according to some accounts, there were more children). 

Why would Mary Magdalene be unsafe in Israel? Because if it was true that she was the bride of Christ then that would make her a queen, and a threat to the power players in Jerusalem, namely, King Herod, et al

After a few months it was determined that Egypt wasn't safe and a longer journey was required. Joseph secured a boat and took Jesus' family northwest across the Mediterranean Sea and made their way to France. Eventually they settled in northern France where it was safe enough to raise the children, which brings us back to the Merovingians.

It was said that one of Mary's daughters married into the Merovingian line, which would validate their claim to possessing the blood of Jesus. However, they corrupted His holy blood and used their power for evil, subduing and brutalizing their subjects, engaging in polygamy, and using their association with the Divine as an excuse to rule in unrighteous dominion.  

Now, you can believe whatever you want, all I am doing here is presenting information to you. The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know anything.

Another interpretation of the word Merovee is "vine of Mary." This vine was represented in the symbol of the fleur de Lis, the three-pronged lily that was used in French coats of arms. It looked something like this:

This symbol was used by the Merovingian kings and it was understood that only those who were descendants of Jesus and Mary Magdalene could lawfully display it. 

 This was a symbol of Royal Blood. It also came to be associated with the lion. Notice the familiar symbol below that we have seen on many European coats of arms:

As you can see the fleur de Lis is displayed on the lion's tail. Why a lion? It is a symbol of the "Lion of Judah," or Jesus Christ Himself. So here we have a symbol of the the union of Jesus and Mary, and their right to reign as king and queen over the earth, which they will literally do during the millennium. 

But like all other symbols, Satan has corrupted this one and used it for his own purposes, i.e., by secret societies hellbent on world domination. Everything that Satan does is an imitation and corruption of something that God did first. 

God uses symbols to teach and instruct us in His mysteries, and one ploy of the Adversary is to make us think that the symbols were evil in the first place. I have certainly fell into this trap as I've studied secret combinations over the years.

So where does this leave us with Brigham Young? As it turns out he may have actually had the blood of Christ flowing through his veins, but like the Merovingians, he chose to use it for evil purposes.

Who else may have had this royal blood coursing through them? 

Joseph Smith. 

I am beginning to postulate a new hypothesis. I am not so sure that Brigham and company killed Joseph so they could take over the Church and practice their polygamy craft, I mean, I think that was definitely part of it. But what if they killed him because Brigham saw him as a blood rival?

What if Joseph was the "rod" to come out of the "stem of Jesse"? spoken of in the Doctrine and Covenants? Let's consider what it says:
Question: What is the Rod spoken of in the 1st verse of the 11th chapter [Isaiah 5:4] that should come out of the stem of Jesse?

Answer: Behold, thus says the Lord: It is a servant in the hands of Christ, who is partly a descendant as well as of Ephraim, or on the House of Joseph, on whom there is laid much power. 

Question: What is the Root of Jesse spoken on in the 10th verse of the 11th chapter [Isaiah 5:4]?

Answer: Behold, thus says the Lord: It is a descendent of Jesse as well as of Joseph, unto whom rightly belongs the Priesthood and keys of the Kingdom, for an ensign and for a gathering of my people in the last day? (T&C 129:2-3)

Who was Jesse? King David's father, who Christ was a descendant of. Taken to its logical conclusion, someone from the "root of Jesse" could also be a direct descendant of Jesus Christ.

Here is another question to ponder:

Is the story of Joseph and Brigham like unto Cain and Able? Two brothers hailing from the same lineage? One whose offering was accepted and the other one rejected? One killing the other in cold blood according to a secret oath? One faithful to Christ and the other to Lucifer? 

Perhaps. The hypothesis is certainly thought provoking. Maybe in a future day God will reveal more about what really happened in the 1840s, or maybe the secret vaults of the LDS Church will be one day be opened for all to see...

Regardless of Church history, there is another question to ponder: 

Was the symbol of a cup, chalice, or vessel, as carrier for the blood of Christ, used to represent the true Grail, the secret place, or the holy of holies, the very womb of Mary Magdalene, the true vine of the Merovee, distributing that blood copiously into the very margins of the nations, trickling down to our present day? 

Perhaps. Maybe, like the seed of Abraham, the Grail represents the continuation of the blood of Israel, designed to bless all the ends of the earth, as God's grafting of the true vine into the nithermost regions of His vineyard?

A blood line designed to bless and uplift, not to subdue and dominate.

Stay tuned for next time when we dive deep into Brigham's intel about Salt Lake Valley that he received from a Jesuit priest...

Upon This Land V: The Pilfering of the West

Previously: A Corporate History

Have you ever wondered how the federal government got its grubby hands on most of the land in the Western states? 

The story involves the usual players: the Freemasons, the international bankers, American politicians, and secret societies like Skull and Bones.  

Notice the map above. The areas in red are owned by the federal government. Notice the phrase, "Federal Public Land." That phrase is an oxymoron, land cannot be owned by the government and the public at the same time. Land, like people, cannot serve two masters. 

If you think that "federal" land means "public" than just see what happens when you try to set foot on INL land in Idaho or Area 51 land in Nevada. In just minutes you'll be surrounded by armed men in black helicopters and/or black SUVs. 

And they are not there for "national security," they are there to protect these facilities from you, the corporate-slave-terrorist. If you are awake, you'll know that the corporate government is in the middle of a declared war on well, you. You and I are enemies of the State, and the real terrorists, like the late Osama Bin Laden, are subcontractors hired by USA INC to scare you into submission. To keep you in a continual cycle of fear just like the grasshoppers did to the ants in A Bug's Life.

It's nothing personal, it's just business.

So how did we get here? 

How did a small minority of elites come to own the bulk of the Rocky Mountain corridors of the American West?

To find out, we have to go back to antebellum period. Ah, that sweet epoch when sovereigns enjoyed their vested rights and allodial title to land... land that was granted to them by Almighty God. 

Back in those days the sovereign people hired the federal government as a subcontractor to divvy out public lands to those who applied for them... for free. You see, land cannot be bought and sold, land can only be granted.

Before the Constitution was created and ratified the colonies operated under the Articles of Confederation, and because states considered themselves sovereign republics they would not relinquish their unappropriated lands to the confederation, but rather kept the task of land distribution in house. 

Sometime after the Constitution was ratified, the States, through various enabling acts, agreed to give up all right and title to land and made the federal government a trustee "with power of attorney over the disbursement of land to the people in all other states" (Ron Gibson).

Laws for allowing Congress to grant land patents began to be passed. A "General Land Office" was established and began issuing land patents to applicants who homesteaded unappropriated lands in any state or territory of the United States. This was the land distribution system that America functioned under right up until the Civil War. 

A patent was, and still is, considered the highest evidence of title.

As Ron Gibson points out in his book, case law has concurred with the premise above. Every time a legitimate land patent case has appealed up to the Supreme Court it has always been granted in favor of the land patentee. 

There are scores of cases to prove this point. I only have space to include a few:

"A patent regularly issued by the government is the best and only evidence of a perfect title." State v. Crawford 441 P.2d 586,590 (1968).

"Therefore it is necessary to determine the validity of returning to the patent as the operative title. Patents are issued (and theoretically passed) between sovereigns and deeds are executed by persons and private corporations without these sovereign powers." Leading Fighter v. County of Gregory, 230 N.W.2d 114,116 (1975).

"The actual patent should be secured to place at rest any question as to the validity of entries (possession under a claim and color of title)." Young v. Miller, 125 So. 2d 257,258 (1960).

(These cases and many others are documented by Ron Gibson on pp. 96-97 of his book, What You Need To Know About Land Patents.)

Land patents are the supreme law of the land, and the only proof of lawful title. Warranty deeds, quitclaims, motor vehicle "certificate of title", etc., fall under the category of "legal" and are not evidence of title but are rather color of title. In legal terms, color means the "mere semblance of legal right." 

Land patents endowed the recipient with allodial title, which means "beholden to no lord or superior." That meant no property taxes (rents, fees, etc.) or any other incumbrance... ever.

A land patent is a title held in perpetuity, which means forever and ever. 

This is actual history. It really happened. In fact, allodial land owners were the only legitimate electors (not voters) of public officials at the county, state, and national level.

This was all changed after the incorporation of USA INC and the inauguration of the slave state. Slaves, after all, cannot own anything, let alone land. This was horrible timing for the western states coming into the Union in the late 1800s. Here is how Ron Gibson describes it:
This whole system of granting land worked well until the western state republics entered the post-Civil War Union and surrendered unappropriated lands to the federal United States Government that did not get distributed back to the people. Large portions of the west were not distributed to the people, but held as "federal land" (trust lands) or distributed to the states; this was a flagrant violation of the principles upon which America was founded. (Full text of EXH 466 Land Patents by Ron Gibson, 4-29-2017, p. 27)

The federal government has violated its position as land trustee. It has committed fraud, and by law, fraud vitiates (nullifies) everything. Therefore, all claims made by the federal government to western lands are invalid. They have become mere robbers, as Lysander Spooner has so aptly described them.

Being a trustee is nothing to take lightly. A trustee, after all, does not have any actual ownership in what he or she is responsible for. According to Ron Gibson, a trustee is:

The person who holds the legal estate for the benefit of another... (Land Patents p. 150)

The duty of a trusteeship is known by another term, fiduciary employment. A fiduciary duty is a duty to "act in good faith with regard to the interests of another." It also means "held in trust." 

After 1871, the government was no longer a trustee of the people, it became an occupying military dictatorship. And what is the first thing that occupying regimes do? 

They change history

They gaslight the people into believing that things have always resembled the status quo. 

During the late 1800s, USA INC went right to work appropriating unappropriated western lands, to well, themselves. But they did it in such a way as to trick the average citizen into believing it was done for the public good.

Grover Cleveland, during his second term as CEO, was one of the first to appropriate forest lands as "reserves" to the federal government, and by 1897, 39 million acres had already been set aside. 

But that number would grow exponentially after the darling of the Progressive Party would assume the position of CEO after a single shot from a lone nut. 

Teddy Roosevelt: A True Nut Job

Mark Twain once remarked after meeting Teddy Roosevelt that the president was "clearly insane." Roosevelt's own son wrote in his journal, "father wanted to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral." He craved power, attention, and adulation, and most egregiously, he loved war and violence.  

When he was young he once had a fight with his girlfriend, and was so enraged that he came home and shot his neighbor's dog. When he killed his first buffalo, he excitedly jumped up and down whooping and hollering like a crazed idiot. When he killed his first Filipino during the Spanish-American War, he exhibited a similar display. He had no regard for the life of man or beast, and although brave under fire, he plunged his men of the Rough Rider company into ambush and certain death on at least two occasions. 

How did such a loose canon become the CEO for USA INC? 

To find out we have to look at the Roosevelt name and family. TR and FDR were distant cousins, both hailing from a royal line. The Roosevelt family can be traced back to the Delanos, a Black Venetian Noble Family. 

The Black Nobility dominated Italy during the 12th century, having connections to the Pope and the Vatican. They manipulated European politics and banking, and enjoyed government-sponsored monopolies.

The Black Nobility were the proprietors of European feudalism, doling out feudal lands (fiefdoms) to connected family members to be rented out to vassals (serfs and peasants). In addition to the benefits of receiving lucrative rents from serfs, the nobility also demanded fealty and allegiance from inferiors. 

They used all the same tricks that secret combinations use today to secure their power: political assassinations, monetary manipulation, kidnapping, murder, blackmail, fearmongering, etc. 

The descendants of the Black Nobility are still with us today. They make up the membership of secret societies like the Club of Rome, the Round Table, the Bilderbergers, and the Skull and Bones. Their front groups are the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission, as well as the newer groups we know today as the World Economic Forum and the United Nations. 

According to Fritz Springmeier, author of Bloodlines of the Illuminati, the Roosevelt’s wealth derived from a massive fortune in whale oil inherited by Franklin Hughes Delano, who married Lavia Astor, the daughter of William Buckhouse Astor. The Astors are a wealthy banking family from Europe, and according to Springmeier, one of the 13 families of the Illuminati. The name Astor is said to have been derived from the pagan goddess Astarte. (See Bloodlines p. 11)

Vice-president TR was catapulted into the Whitehouse after the assassination of president William McKinley by a shot fired from a "lone nut." Political assassinations are always blamed on some disgruntled whack job acting on his own whims. The official accounts are always bereft of any conspiratorial agenda to replace one president with another more amenable to the powers that be. 

In the case of McKinley and TR, the two were backed by competing banking powers: McKinley by the Rockefellers and Roosevelt by the Morgans (remember that both groups were controlled by the Rothschilds).

TR had eased into the vice-presidency through the death of another Morgan man, Garret A. Hobart. Although McKinley considered TR a "madman," he secured the nomination with the help of George W. Perkins (the Perkins' are another Illuminati family). When Roosevelt was elected in 1900, he threw a dinner party in honor of J.P. Morgan.  

After McKinley was shot, Roosevelt assumed the presidency and filled his cabinet with Morgan-connected men. He appointed Elihu Root as Secretary of State, a former personal attorney for J.P. Morgan, who was eventually replaced by Robert Bacon (the Bacons are another Illuminati family). Other appointments were Paul Morton (Secretary of the Navy and vice-president of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad, also a Morgan company), and his Assistant Secretary Herbert L. Satterlee (J.P. Morgan's son-in-law). (See Rothbard, Wall Street, Banks, and American Foreign Policy, pp. 13-15)

As you can see, the McKinley assassination was not carried out by some "lone nut," but was a coup orchestrated by Morgan banking interests. They needed a loose cannon like Teddy in the Whitehouse to unleash a string of executive orders that would render to the conspirators the bulk of western lands. 

You know, it's funny, movies like Night At The Museum portray TR as a child-like, lovable, adventurous, and wise man with a good heart. In the academic world he is lauded as the hero who saved our forests and gave us national parks to conserve wildlands and nature. 

The truth? 

He was no better than a common thief, a conniving and raging lunatic, thirsty for power, blood, and adoration. Establishment history books seem to leave out the fact that he was eugenicist and a racist, and that he was deeply connected to powerful banking families who lobbied him into the political arena. 

Before Lincoln declared martial law and took over our this nation, executive orders were not numbered, and were only used sporadically and sparingly. Lincoln's first executive order, and consequently the first one we have assigned a number, officially ended the Republic set up by the Founders. The states as former sovereigns became mere subjects of the Union, and then after 1871, mere subsidiaries of the corporation. 

From then on, executive orders issued by the CEO of USA INC became legal policy for the corporate slaves. Even then, the presidents between Lincoln and TR used them sparingly, usually numbering in tens or dozens. 

Teddy Roosevelt broke the mold, during his two terms he issued over 1000 executive orders, only to be outdone by Calvin Coolidge at 1203, Woodrow Wilson at 1803, and FDR at a whopping 3721. 
TR really believed that the president could do whatever was necessary as the sole representative of the "will of the people." Of course, his reasoning was all nonsense and propaganda, because as an insider with deep connections to the Illuminati, he surely knew that America had become a corporation and was no longer a free republic. 

I believe his conservation crusade was assigned to him at the behest of the Order of Skull and Bones, because most of the land in the East and Midwest had already been homesteaded, and they wanted to acquire vast corridors of land that was yet unappropriated. They needed a base of operations for the future New World Order, and sadly, that is right here in the American West. 

As of 2023, I believe they have chosen Utah for that headquarters. Salt Lake City, is after all, the dead center of the West.

Just think about this for a moment: there has been some speculation that Joseph Smith believed that Zion would be in the Rocky Mountains, Isaiah is replete with prophecies about Zion being in the everlasting hills and the tops of the mountains, and other prophets testify of similar things. (Update: I had originally written that Joseph Smith stated that Zion would be in the Rocky Mountains but I was wrong, there is no direct quote. But there is some interesting information in this talk).  

Satan knows scripture, and one way that he might attempt to thwart the future Zion is to make sure that all the mountainous land of the Western United States is owned and controlled by the Illuminati. Well, he did just that, and at the most opportune time. Long after Joseph and Hyrum were dead and just after the last western state entered the Union, Satan made sure that the Illuminati took possession of the land. (Think of Moroni's warning that the last-days secret combination would attempt to "overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries.") 

But as usual, his cunning is miniscule to the foreknowledge and power of God. Zion will be built regardless, but it doesn't hurt to take a look at the history to see just how desperate the Adversary gets to thwart God's purposes. 

God has decreed and covenanted that upon this land, the land of America, latter-day Israel will be gathered and the New Jerusalem built. Satan and the New World Order are powerless to stop those covenants from being fulfilled. This is, after all, the very work of the Father in Heaven

TR had an insider that helped him to secure the forest lands, in fact, this conservation guru is now considered the father of the Forest Service. The man's name was Gifford Pinchot, and he was a bona fide member of the secret society we have heard so much about over the last year, none other than the Skull and Bones.

Francis Bacon and the Pinchot Brothers

As usual, I love to refer to Murray Rothbard to relate strange episodes of obscure history that most Americans are oblivious to. As it turns out, Rothbard wrote an entire chapter on TR and Pinchot's conservation crusade in his posthumously published book The Progressive Era. This opening quote really says it all:
The conservation movement, past and present, has generally been painted in sweetness and light, as disinterested nature lovers leading the "people" in war against the corporate interests who wish to exploit and plunder natural resources. The actual facts are quite different... 

As in so many other aspects of the progressive movement, conservation constituted a shift of control of ownership of natural resources from private to governmental hands in order to subsidize and cartelize private interests in that area. (The Progressive Era, pp. 252-53)

What Rothbard doesn't state, but probably knew, is that those "private interests" were those of the powerful banking families of the Illuminati. Sir Francis Bacon, one of the first Freemasons who began financing voyages to America in the 1500s, implied in his pipe-dreamy novel The New Atlantis that America would be the location that ancient Atlantis would be resurrected.

Francis Bacon was no ordinary Freemason, he was the Supreme Head of the Rosicrucian Order, as well as the proprietor of a secret society known as The Order of the Quest. He concocted the latter group as a cover for early American colonization schemes, the first one being Jamestown. After letting the initial squadron of immigrants face the elements and the natives, powerful families connected to the Bacons began infiltrating the colony. These families stayed connected through what Manly P. Hall refers to as "fortuitous marriages." 

(If you want to learn more about Bacon and his obsession with America, I wrote about it extensively in a post entitled, The Atlantean Leviathan.)

Bacon was also purportedly involved in the King James translation of the Bible. Here is what Manly P. Hall had to say about it:

The first edition of the King James Bible contains a cryptic Baconian headpiece. Did Bacon cryptographically conceal in the Authorized Bible that which he dared not literally reveal in the text--the secret Rosicrucian key to mystic and Masonic Christianity? (The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p. 483)

It is also surmised by Hall and others that Bacon wrote all of the Shakespearean plays. Apparently, the real William Shakespeare could barely write his own name, let alone detailed scripts revealing Rosicrucian mysteries veiled to the profane. Yes, Shakespeare's plays were parables revealing mystic knowledge espoused by the Mystery Schools. To find out more, watch the video below:

I have posted about Bacon being involved in the translation of the KJV of the Bible, but now I realize it could've been all a ruse to credit Rosicrucianism with inserting the symbolism that some have construed as sun worship and numerology that are found in the New Testament. The two-part video below tells a different narrative that I've never considered. Namely, that King James was a dedicated Christian that spent his life fighting secret societies and Luciferianism: 

Now, why do I bring up Bacon when I'm writing about TR and Pinchot? To show you that these agendas have been in the works for a long time, even centuries. These Mystery initiates are patient, they spread their agenda out over centuries, even millennia. 

Remember, these guys are the antithesis of God's Holy Order, which I wrote about here. The Holy Order consists of priests ordained by God Himself, who have come down to earth during certain dispensations to help others ascend. A few quick examples are Adam, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Elijah, and Joseph Smith. The Mystery Schools are Satan's imitation for this group. 

Satan also imitates God's concept of promised lands, and consequently, the New World Order (made up of Satanic priests), has had its eye on America for a base of operations for centuries, going back at least to Francis Bacon. 

Pinchot and TR were just players in the same game.

So who exactly was Gifford Pinchot?

The Pinchot family was a wealthy dynasty from France (the birthplace of Rosicruciansim and Templarism). Gifford and his brother Amos were born to James and Mary Pinchot, a wealthy couple who enjoyed social connections with elites like Union general William T. Sherman (a Freemason). Gifford and Amos received their higher education from Yale University, where both were inducted into the order of Skull and Bones. 

We know this because of Antony Sutton's book, America's Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones. Sutton was handed the membership roster of American Bonesman by an unnamed informant, which I assume had something to do with his work at the Hoover Institute. He reveals that both Pinchot brothers were inducted into the Order at Yale in the late 1800s: Gifford in 1889, and Amos in 1897.

Also interesting to note is Sutton's following observation about Gifford's younger brother Amos:

Amos Pinchot was a founder of the American Civil Liberties Union and active in aiding the Soviets during the early days of the Bolshevik Revolution. (p. 146)

Amos was a democrat with communist leanings, and Gifford was a republican. This is typical of how the Order distributes its infiltrators into society--in seemingly opposite ends of the political spectrum. As you may recall, G.W. Bush and John Kerry exhibited a similar display; cousins who were both members of Skull and Bones pretending to run against each other in a rigged election.

Both Pinchot brothers were close to Teddy Roosevelt, and Gifford may have been his assigned handler. TR was not a member of Skull and Bones, so he was not privy to the same insider information as Gifford, but he was a Master Mason. He had entered the lodge at age 42, the same year he became president (CEO) of USA INC.

The way these secret societies function is that those from a higher circle will manipulate those of lower echelons. This was clearly demonstrated with Woodrow Wilson (also not a Bonesman), who was manipulated by his handler and alter-ego Edward Mandel House. 

House was not a member of Skull and Bones himself, but had a close friendship with Arthur Twining Hadley, who he had been classmates with at Hopkins Grammar School in New Haven, Connecticut. Hadley was inducted into the Order in 1876, and would eventually become president of Yale University and serve from 1899 to 1921. (See Sutton, America's Secret Establishment, p. 96)

As you can see, there is never an establishment figure, let alone a CEO, who is left without a handler. And we cannot assume that Skull and Bones is the top echelon, for there are always higher circles of influence-- and the higher you go, the more anonymity you get--until you reach the top of Satan's Church, where I believe leaders enjoy complete anonymity.

Those in the public spotlight are often pawns used by those who manipulate things behind the scenes. The lower echelons of public figures are easy to control; because they love fame and adoration, they are easily blackmailed into submission.

Now, I believe that this pattern of one group of conspirators controlling and handling another group is Satan's imitation of God's pattern of ascension. 

God revealed this pattern to Abraham in this very interesting verse:

And the Lord said unto me, These two facts do exist--that there are two spirits, one being more intelligent than the other; there shall be another more intelligent than they. I am the Lord, your God; I am more intelligent than they all. (Abraham 5:4, RE)

Intelligence in this context does not mean that one spirit is smarter or more cunning than the other, it simply means that one has more experience than the other. In another verse of scripture intelligence is defined as "the light of truth, which can only be gained through mortal experience. 

In essence the Lord is saying this: no matter how far you've progressed up Jacob's ladder, there is always someone else who has progressed further, and that He, the Lord, has progressed the furthest. Abraham is not belittling others or making intelligence a point of pride; he is simply stating that experience produces intelligence and all of God's children are on different levels of that path. Consequently, Christ has gained the most experience, and thus, the most intelligence.

Those who have progressed further, i.e., the noble and great ones, voluntarily condescend to lower levels to help others ascend (the Holy Order). But what they do not do is manipulate and control others like those in Satan's Church. Rather, they invite and entice others to come unto Christ and begin the ascension process (see Alma's famous sermon on faith).

Lucifer's leaders, on the other hand (the left hand to be exact), pride themselves on gaining light and knowledge through the intellect (not through mortal probation), and because of that knowledge (and being in certain bloodlines) they assume they have the right to rule (control) others. The Left Hand path is characterized by hubris, avarice, intrigue, subjugation, and unrighteous dominion.  

It is through this--the conspiratorial lens--that history should be viewed, for that is the only way to comprehend events as they have truly transpired. Satan hasn't changed from the time he first covenanted with Cain, and he does not want that revealed. This is why the scripture that indicted Cain as the first Master Mahon (spelling of the RE version of scripture) was removed from the Old Testament by the Great and Abominable Church in the first place.

The point of that side tangent was to set the tone for how I view Gifford Pinchot. In my opinion he was TR's handler, deliberately placed there from a higher circle of influence to make sure the Morgan-backed CEO made all the right moves in regards to confiscating the land. 

Pinchot the Pilferer

Pinchot entered the political scene in a milieu that presented the perfect opportunity for pilfering lands. In spite of the incorporation of USA INC in the 1870s, the homesteading of unappropriated lands was still allowed for another two decades. Then, in 1891, Congress passed the General Land Law Revision Act. 

This Act, signed into law by Benjamin Harrison, gave the CEO of USA INC the power to unilaterally set aside forest preserves out of public lands formally available for homesteading. Under the auspices of the Act Benjamin Harrison set aside 13 million acres of forest reserves, Grover Cleveland 25 million, William McKinley 7 million, and Teddy Roosevelt, a whopping 151 million acres. 

While the push for conservation was an upper-class supported crusade to "preserve" wildlands in their pristine condition, Pinchot and TR had other plans. Namely, a plot to cartelize industries that relied on forest and grasses for survival: timber production and cattle grazing. The model would be reminiscent of the medieval feudal system, the very arrangement our colonial progenitors fought so hard to escape from. 

Instead of allowing private homesteading, forest and grass lands would be leased to corporations perpetually. The government could collect such rents because it had been incorporated neo-feudally by the Organic Act of 1871. This system benefitted two groups: the bureaucrats who collected the rents and controlled the land, and the largest corporations who could win, by government favoritism, an increased market share over smaller competitors. 

Pinchot, who was trained in forestry in Germany and France, was an advocate of "scientific forestry," which translated into a cozy relationship between bureaucrats and private timber producers. Before rising to the position of the head of the Forest Service under TR, Pinchot had served on the National Forestry Committee since the early 1890s, where his influence behind the scenes helped to persuade Grover Cleveland to dedicate 21 million acres of forests to federal control.

It must be stressed here that setting aside forest lands was not done for "preservation," but rather to limit supply so that both bureaucrats and private corporations could enjoy higher prices, artificially created by shortages. Higher prices meant increased rents and/or lobbying fees for USA INC, and decreased competition for politically-connected businesses.

There is another term to describe this symbiotic system: corporate fascism.

Pinchot formed alliances with private timber companies as well as the Western Stockmen. Both groups leased out federally acquired lands resulting in a depletion of natural resources through the "land communism" system of "open range" that so many Western movie scripts have been written about. Murray Rothbard aptly describes the "open range" system as follows:
... the result, for decades, was vast "open range," owned by the federal government, but used in common on a first-come, first-served basis by private users. The result of this "land communism" in the West was that the private users had a strong incentive to use up the soil or land as rapidly as possible, before their competitors could use it, and then move onto the rest of the range. (The Progressive Era, pp. 256-57)

To the bureaucrats and secret societies pulling the strings and collecting the rents, the bonanza of profits gushing into USA INC outweighed any aesthetic impetus to preserve wildlands. Thus, the bait and switch modality so consistent with Gadianton combinations was used on the hapless public. 

As the timber cartel grew, Pinchot secured the position of Chief of the Division of Forestry under the McKinley administration, which later morphed into the Bureau of Forestry, and finally in 1905, the Forest Service. The cartel functioned under the cloak of an innocuous sounding organization called the Society of American Foresters, which absorbed the older American Forestry Association, and by 1909, had been bolstered by scores of private lumbermen. 

This public/private partnership snowballed into a giant lobbying machine, raising private funds for the Forestry Bureau and even appointing a distinctive chair in forestry at Yale, the university clandestinely harboring the Skull and Bones. The impetus behind the chair at Yale emanated from a collusion between Pinchot and another fellow Bonesman: Henry S. Graves.

Graves was a bit of a protege to Pinchot, five years younger and dedicated to the cause of seizing forest lands from the states. Groomed for the position by Pinchot, Graves would be appointed to Chief of the Forest Service in 1910 under another Bonesman: William Howard Taft. 

Taft would be elected president (appointed as CEO) in 1909 and would be replaced in 1912 by the Morgan-backed Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Teddy Roosevelt's reappearance in the election ritual of 1912 split the vote just enough so that Wilson could get the nomination. The creation of the Bull Moose Party was nothing but a ruse to accomplish this very thing. Taft had played his losing part well. 

Taft was not just a run-of-the-mill Bonesman, his father, Alphonso Taft, had been a cofounder of Skull and Bones in 1833 with General William Huntington Russell. Russell had been in Germany in the preceding years before he founded he Order, where Antony Sutton presumes he was trained in the Hegelian Dialectic by the European wing of Skull and Bones: a secret society known as the Group. In 1856, Russell created a foundation known as the Russell Trust, and it was under this guise that the Order was secretly incorporated as a legal entity (See Sutton, America's Secret Establishment, p. 66).

Now, was it a coincidence that the first two Chief's of the United States Forest Service were Bonesmen?

I don't believe in coincidences when massive tracts of land are at stake. 

When Roosevelt assumed the presidency in 1901, he went right to work locking Western lands away from homesteaders and transferring them into the proverbial coffers of USA INC, and then into the control of one man, Gifford Pinchot. Rothbard further elucidates:

As soon as Roosevelt became president, he began reserving more and more parts of the public domain from private homesteading and into the permanently governmental national forests. In his first year as president, Roosevelt created 13 new forests totaling 15.5 millions. When in 1907, Congress, in alarm at Roosevelt's grabbing new forest reserves, revoked his authority to create new reserves in six Western states, T.R., spitefully rushed to set aside 75 million additional acres of forests before the bill became law, bringing the grand total up to 151 million acres. In late 1905, Roosevelt transferred control of the national forests from the Department of the Interior to his friend Pinchot and the Forest Service. (Ibid, p. 254, emphasis added)

Now we come to what I believe was the real goal of Pinchot's role in establishing a National Forest Service. In order to grab Western lands and forests at will, he had to effectively neuter the power of his old nemesis: the General Land Office. This office was established in 1812 and was commissioned by Congress to issue Land Patents to homesteaders. Here is what historian Samuel P. Hays said about it:

As early of 1898 Pinchot became convinced that the General Land Office could not administer the reserves effectively... The Office, he argued, hopelessly involved in a maze of political appointments, legalistic routine, and personal favoritism, was not really interested in effective forest management. No one could cut through these entrenched inefficiencies. To solve the problem Congress should transfer the program to an entirely new agency, the Bureau of Forestry. (Hays, Conservation and the Gospel of Efficiency, p. 52, emphasis added)

The transfer wasn't about "efficiency," it was about control. And it was about destroying the very principles America was founded on. One of which was the inalienable right for the common man to own and work land without incumbrances. 

Pinchot's antics became infuriating to westerners and preservationists, who began to protest what they pejoratively named "Pinchotism." To combat this opposition, the "conservation" movement was conjured in 1907 by TR and falsely painted with a grassroots brush.

The new crusade purporting to conserve nature gained wide support in political and industrial circles. Just like the modern wolf transplant movement, much of the support came from wealthy Easterners romanticizing about lands they lived thousands of miles from. Along with the timbermen who had long enjoyed increased profits from their partnership with Pinchot, the big railroads also became enthusiastic supporters of conservation. 

As Rothbard points out, the limitation imposed on homesteading forest lands would force settlers onto railroad lands that had been granted to them by the government (railroads were the first welfare babies). Thus, magnates like James J. Hill of the Great Northern Railroad, gleefully ecstatic about the conservation movement, could sell their land to immigrants at an artificially higher price. 

Another supporter of conservation was none other than Andrew Carnegie of U.S. Steel. There is an important point to make here in regards to Skull and Bones. Carnegie was not a member of the Order (and no Carnegie ever has been), but was assigned a handler who was. His name was Daniel Coit Gilman, and he was also influential in melding Wundt psychological methods from Germany with American education. Skull and Bones has their hands in everything, from education to the wealth of the major Foundations. (See Sutton, America's Secret Establishment, p. 32)

Sutton also makes the point that the Order's circle of influence extends into nearly all segments of American society: money, education, law, politics, economy, history, psychology, philanthropy, medicine, religion, media, and continuity (keeping the same people and organizations in power). 

Keep this concept in mind as we precede through how our land was stolen from us. Skull and Bones (the Order) endeavors to keep most of their initiates working from behind the scenes as handlers to those who are in the limelight. Anonymity is the name of game. 

Every once in a while you'll see high profile members in the public spotlight like the Bush family or say, Russel M. Nelson, but if you read through rosters provided by Sutton (Yale roster) and Defending Utah (University of Utah roster), you'll find you don't recognize most of the names. That's deliberate.

Ardent conservationists made of mostly wealthy Easterners became passionate about national parks, viewing them as "opportunities for worship" through experiencing pristine nature (worship of who? Gaia?) Yellowstone was the first park that was nationalized and stolen from the Wyoming territory in 1872. 

The bill to make Yellowstone a national (federal) park was lobbied for by geologist Ferdinand Hayden, who had been federally-funded to study the area's mineral and animal resources. Other powerful lobbyers joined the fray, such as Jay Cooke, an investment banker and close friend of then president Ulysses S. Grant. 

Cooke had a sordid financial history. He had been granted a monopoly on the underwriting of all government bonds by his friend Salmon P. Chase, Secretary of State under Lincoln. Cooke went bankrupt during the Panic of 1874, which paved for the way for J.P. Morgan to become America's next banking dynasty (I wrote about that here).

President Grant would sign the Yellowstone bill into law on March 1st of 1872, a bill that was unprecedented. Unlike the Yosemite Act that guaranteed the land to the State of California, the Yellowstone bill would turn the park land over to the Department of the Interior.

The bill actually met much resistance from people concerned it would give the federal government too much power, as well as from advocates of homesteading. Just a decade prior the Homesteading Act of 1862 was passed guaranteeing the right of Americans to claim public lands (this concept was carried over from the land patent system that existed before the Civil War). 

Interestingly enough, the bill still passed, albeit clandestinely, reminiscent of the Patriot Act of 2001. It was catapulted through the Senate without a roll call, yet somehow the word got out that the bill had passed and pressure was put on the House of Representatives to comply. (See this article for more details).  

It should also be noted here that President Grant was a Scottish Rite Freemason. Here he is assuming the pose of the hidden hand:

The national park movement greatly increased the power of the federal government to take possessions of state lands. Teddy Roosevelt took advantage of that power through the Antiquities Act of 1906, which gave the president, one man, the power to create national monuments at will. 

TR doubled the amount of sites that fell within the national park system by adding them as monuments, one of them being Mt. Rushmore, the 60 ft. high rock wall that would later bear a model of the President’s face. That land had been taken from the Lakota Sioux in the treaty of 1868.

In the fateful year of 1933, FDR issued an executive order allowing the president to turn any national monument into a national park, and thus, into the full control of USA INC. 

To sum things up so far, it was through the open range system, and the forestry and national park service that the federal government has taken control of Western lands. This was accomplished by influential men in secret societies like Skull and Bones and Scottish Rite Freemasonry.

This was Lucifer's plan to make the future land of Zion (to be established in the Rocky Mountains) unavailable to the Ephraimite saints of the last-days who would repent and turn to the Lord prior to His return. But once again, God's wisdom outweighs the Devil's cunning, for all the Lord has to do is destroy the societal structures standing in the way of the fulfilling of His covenants to Israel; a small thing indeed for the God of Heaven. 

It has been said that there are only two resources necessary to establish Zion: land and water. The history I have presented so far has covered the land, but what of the water? 

As it turns out, Satan has endeavored to control that too. And once again, Teddy Roosevelt was a pivotal player.

The Reclamation Usurpation

When government desires to control any segment of the American economy, it simply subsidizes it. Federal subsidies for irrigating the arid land of the West came at the most opportune time: in the aftermath of the Panic of 1893 that saw many private irrigators bankrupt. 

Federal irrigation was pushed by two lawyers dedicated to the cause: the young George H. Maxwell of northern California, and the Democratic congressmen from Nevada, Francis G. Newlands. Maxwell sold the idea of federal irrigation to the newly established National Irrigation Congress and helped to organize lobbying groups made of private businessmen and western farmers.

Newlands studied at Yale and Columbian College where he as admitted into the Bar Association. After he married the daughter of a wealthy lawyer, the richest man in San Francisco at the time, he became general counsel for Spring Valley Water Works, a water provider for San Francisco. 

After moving to Nevada in the 1880s and becoming involved in a plan for state-sponsored irrigation, he decided that state governments were "too politicized" and "too inept" to lead successful irrigation campaigns. In the 1890s he would be elected as congressional representative of Nevada, where he would eventually introduce the Reclamation Act that Teddy Roosevelt would enthusiastically sign into law in 1902. Newlands would go on to serve in the Senate where he would offer support to the Forest and National Park Services. 

The Reclamation Act of 1902 was designed to take control of irrigation stemming from rivers, reservoirs, canals, and waterways away from the states and into the control of USA INC. Rothbard elucidates as follows:
The Reclamation Act provided a new device to finance federal irrigation projects in the West: all receipts from the sale of public land in the West [would] go to a special fund for irrigation works in those states. The Reclamation Act also delighted conservationists by giving maximal power to finance projects to the Secretary of the Interior so that he would not have to be restricted by the necessity of getting annual appropriations from the people's representatives in Congress. (The Progressive Era, p. 263)

In section 8 of the act it stipulates that that federal government may not interfere with how states "control, appropriate, use, or distribute water used in irrigation." But that was just smoke and mirrors, because later in the Supreme Court it was ruled that in a case in which state water law conflicted with a federal public works project directed by congress the state would have to acquiesce. (See Ivanhoe Irrigation District v. McCraken).

Rothbard asserts that just like conservation, the reclamation scheme was just another excuse for big business and government to join forces at the expense of the average citizen. Scores of private irrigators had gone bankrupt misjudging the demand for settlers to use their water tie-ins for immediate development. To fix this free market "problem," the government simply became the owner of all reservoirs, canals, and ditches, then handpicked the contractor with the greatest lobbying ability to distribute irrigation water, and forced settlers to purchase the tie-in immediately after purchase of the land. 

In other words, the typical public works scheme. Less competition meant higher prices and limited choices for consumers: the age-old mercantilist racket.

The next thing Congress did was respond to pressures from private land developers to "withdraw all land from homesteading that might be capable of being irrigated,"  even if it that meant a long time in the future. Lobbyers pined for the repeal of the Desert Land Act of 1877, which allowed a settler to homestead 320 acres of desert land if he agreed to irrigate it himself. Pressure to repeal the Timber and Stone Act of 1878 soon followed. 

The latter acts were repealed, and the acreage allowed under the Desert Land Act was reduced to 160 acres. This is how the conspirators win; they take your land and rights away incrementally. 

As in the case of conservation, Gifford Pinchot, the ever-faithful Bonesman, was working behind the scenes with Frederick H. Newell and others to make sure all the water of the West was absorbed into federal bureaucracies and owned, controlled, and ran by them perpetually. 

Rothbard sums up concisely what the true aim was of federal intervention was in land and water, and for that matter, any industry or natural resource:

In every case, land and natural resources are taken out of free, private settlement and development and converted to State regulation and control, in partnership with a relatively few privileged private interests. Where government takes resources off the market, the aim is to restrict and cartelize lands or resources industries. Where government subsidizes development, it is carefully limited to a partnership with selected private interests instead of left open to the competition of the free market. Statism--corporate statism--was the key. (The Progressive Era, pp. 267-68)

Frederick H. Newell became the first director of the United States Reclamation Service. He, like Henry S. Graves, had also been carefully groomed by Pinchot for the position. He had served in the 1890s as secretary of the American Forestry Association, a Pinchot-led lobbying group for the Forest Bureau. He became part of a circle of "scientists" and technocrats that thought themselves more capable of overseeing natural resources than the common man. Hence, the true spirit of the progressive era, the epoch of elitism and centralization of power into the hands of bureaucrats and those on their payrolls.

The Reclamation program soon spawned other avenues of control in what Rothbard calls "multiple-purpose river basin development." Control over water was not enough, as these technocrats wanted more funding  for public works projects that they could dole out to their corporate friends. Rothbard elucidates as follows:

Forests would be reserved for their own sake and also to regulate steam flow of water, reservoirs would be built to control floods, promote irrigation, and generate hydroelectric power, and rivers would be developed for navigation and all these other functions. The vast expense involved meant federal funds and federal control; not only had local and private funding proved inadequate for the irrigation desired by the new planners, but rivers, after all, run interstate, and therefore, if they are to be planned by the government, require federal operation and control. Newell, Pinchot, and Garfield were crucial to formulating and pushing for the new concept. (Ibid, p. 269)

As you can see, the same players pop up everywhere in schemes for more and more federal control. For my thought process, it makes sense that these schemes were conjured in smoke-filled rooms by secret societies with centuries-old "secret plans" to take over the land. 

Volumes have been written on conservation and the progressive era, and I've belabored the point long enough on this post. But sometimes it takes an arduous study of history to really learn how these secret societies function. Their interventions in society can be so subtle yet so calculated, so premediated, and so deliberate. 

A student can sit through endless courses of history in establishment schools and never think twice about how things like federally-operated reservoirs, forests, parks, or lands came to be. The educational system has become quite proficient at gaslighting the public into accepting that these things just happened organically. 

And even more arrogantly, they have the audacity to preach that if it weren't for government programs and great men like Pinchot and TR, then we wouldn't have the infrastructure we have today.

But a thinking mind, unplugged from the cog of the public wheel, has to envision what might have been had not the bureaucrats taken control of resources that God gave to the common man. What might have those homesteaders done with the forests, the rivers, the waterways, and the desert lands?

Indeed, as Frederic Bastiat so elegantly taught us in his Broken Window Fallacy, how else would the man have spent his money if he hadn't been compelled to purchase a new window? Similarly, how would tax payers have spent their hard-earned dollars if they hadn't been compelled to finance the inefficient public works projects of progressives?

What might have been will never be known, for all of its potential creativity has been flushed down the memory hole, and we are left with the very little that the robbers have given us. 

And speaking of envisioning things that might've been, the United Nations was almost successful at locking Americans completely out of western lands for good in 1994. Because of the efforts of one man, Dr. Michael Coffman, the treaty that the UN attempted to foist on the legislature was never ratified. It was called the Biodiversity Treaty, and it was part and parcel of the Wildlands Project. 

The following map illustrates the plan: humans would only be allowed to live in green areas, yellow areas would be highly regulated, and red areas would be completely shut off to human use. 

Notice there is no green at all in the Intermountain West. The elites want you off that land. Period. This map is Satanic. It is his attempt to thwart the plans of God by commandeering the future land of Zion, which will be somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, nestled deep within one of their "red" corridors.

Gadianton's and Hemming In The Land

There are a few interesting Book of Mormon verses that can be applied to this topic. 

I have shared this first verse before in the same context, in the first post on the Beast is Coming to Utah Series subtitled, The Resurgence of Gaia Worship. That article by the way would be a good companion to this one on the West because it covers the modern conservation movement (I also covered Michael Coffman and the above Biodiversity map). You'll find that the goal of over 100 years of conservation has always been the same: to get people off the land and concentrated into cities. 

The Gadiantons in the Book of Mormon had the same goal, but they didn't call it conservation, or any other name. They just attempted to do it by employing an interesting strategy. Mormon relates the account as follows:

And it came to pass that this nineteenth year did pass away and the robbers did not come again to battle, neither did they come again in the twentieth year. But in the twenty and first year, they did not come up to battle, but they came up on all sides to lay siege round about the people of Nephi; for they did suppose that if they should cut off the people of Nephi from their lands and should hem them in on every side, and if they should cut them off from their outward privileges, that they could cause them to yield themselves up according to their wishes. (3 Nephi 2:12, RE, emphasis added)

Studying scripture can oft times be like peering into a mirror. In this case, reading about an isolated incident that happened over the course of a few years can hold imperative implications for us in our day. You have to ask the question: why did God include this story in the account and who is the intended audience?

While it is true that a UN army of "peace-keepers" is not surrounding our lands physically (at least not yet), the elites have been cutting off our lands slowly and methodologically for the last 150 years. They have also been cutting us off from our "outward privileges," or vested rights. Furthermore, they have created a system of corporate slavery based on us "yielding" up our rights to them voluntarily, or in other words, slavery by consent.

Scripture is written like a parable. It will often contain many meanings at varying levels. I could be totally off on my application of the verse, but the point is that Gadiantons have a pattern of taking over lands that do not belong to them. They do this to "hem" in the people they want to subjugate and dominate.

They also have an obsession with believing they have a "right to rule" over others. The Book of Mormon clearly delineates this concept as well. In Giddianhi's famous epistle to Lachoneus, he reveals himself to be a high-ranking Mystery School initiate. He states:

And behold, I am Giddianhi, and I am the governor of this secret society of Gadianton, which society and the works thereof I know to be good; and they are of ancient date, and they have been handed down to us. And I write this epistle unto you, Lachoneus, and I hope that ye will deliver up your lands and your possessions without the shedding of blood, that this my people recover their rights and government, who have dissented away from you because of your wickedness in retaining from them their rights of government. And except ye do this, I will avenge their wrongs. I am Giddianhi. (3 Nephi 2:2, RE, emphasis added)

Do you see what he is saying? He declares that he knows the works of the secret society of Gadianton to be good, meaning, that Luciferianism is his religion. He truly believes in it. He also states that he is the governor of that society, which means he replaced Gadianton as Master Mahon. He then declares that his people, meaning, his fellow initiates of the Mystery Schools, should be entitled to the "rights of government."

And why do they believe they have this right to rule? Because of their occult knowledge they have received from Lucifer. 

They believe that knowledge alone separates and elevates them from the ignorant, or the profane. In Freemasonry, this is illustrated symbolically by the letter G on their logo. The G stands for three concepts: geometry, generation, and gnosis. Geometry is the exoteric cloak designed to veil the higher concepts of generation (illustrated by the obelisk or the phallus of Osiris) and gnosis (primordial knowing stemming back to Lucifer and Eve in the Garden of Eden).

I find it interesting, and no coincidence, that both Gadianton and Giddianhi's names start with G. I believe that Gadianton was Master Mahon because of something that Amberli Peterson points out in her new book. Gadianton did not have access to the secret plans of the Mystery Schools because Alma and Helaman had been charged by the Lord to guard the plates of Limhi that contained the oaths, rituals, and covenants used by these ancient societies. 

So how did he obtain them? Satan put them directly into his heart. Or, in other words, a demonic download.

Amberli offers her explanation of why:

So, without getting his hands on the "the secret plans," how did Gadianton acquire his unique skill-set along with the "expert knowledge" of the satanic oaths and covenants he used to form the first secret combination?

The short answer is that Satan gave up on waiting for these secret plans to find their way into the wrong hands. At some point, he must have realized that, like Alma, Helaman was going to guard those records with hyper diligence, so he went to Gadianton directly and put into his heart all the "secret oaths and covenants" that facilitate the secret works of darkness. (Ripened: Why the Book of Mormon Damns Abortion, p. 103, emphasis original).

So, Gadianton became Master Mahon by seeking out this ancient knowledge, and like Cain, had it revealed directly to him by Satan. Gadianton is a typology of Cain. This is Satan's imitation for God's typology of someone in the Holy Order who seeks for higher knowledge; someone like Abraham.

Abraham desired to be one who seeks for further light and truth. Because Abraham didn't have access to the true Gospel he had to seek it out from God Himself, in the midst of a milieu of pagan worship and human sacrifice. Joseph Smith is also a typology of Abraham because he questioned everything and went directly to God for religious answers.

Again, I stress the words of the late D. Christian Markham, "God creates and Satan imitates."

In Part VI, I'll turn my attention to Brigham Young and the settling of Salt Lake Valley. Have you ever wondered why Brigham just knew that Salt Lake "was the place"? Indeed, what was the source of that knowledge? Was he truly inspired by God or did he have insider knowledge through his connections in Freemasonry that Salt Lake City, smack dab in the American West, would one day become a major hub of the New World Order?

Stay tuned. 

Postscript: Prayers for Ken Cromar

My good friend Ken Cromar has been arrested by the FBI and incarcerated in Davies County Jail in Layton, Utah. He is facing federal charges involving tax evasion and "trespassing" on his own property after it was seized by a federal swat team. Ken's trial is on December 11th and he will be representing himself. 

Ken has been involved in the sovereign movement and filed a land patent on his property in Cedar Hills, Utah several years ago and has been in an ongoing legal battle with the IRS. He has represented himself in court throughout the entire process, never hiring an attorney. He feels like he is on assignment from the Lord to take this journey by laying everything on the altar and letting the cards fall where they may. 

Ken is a brave man. He is also a good man. I don't understand why he thought he had to embark on this path but I have nothing but the utmost respect for him. I ask that you keep him in your prayers as he faces these federal sycophants alone. He is looking at ten years or more in federal prison if convicted of all charges. 

As a disclaimer this is why I don't recommend the land-patent/sovereign-citizen/state-national path unless you have a professional like Ron Gibson help you make sure you do everything correctly, otherwise you could end up in prison.

Even though I am fascinated by this subject and write about it often, I haven't filed a land patent or made any other attempt to escape the slavery system. I believe that in a coming day God will destroy the societal structures that are supporting our maritime legal system, and at that point it will not matter whether you have filed a land patent or become a state national.
