THE ILLUMINATI-PART 7

[Note: In Gary Kah’s Winter 2011 “Hope for the World Update” one finds the following revealing information: “According to CNN, home values in the U.S. tumbled another $1.7 trillion in 2010…. The United States has lost a staggering 32% of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000…. Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.” All of these are the effect of an assault primarily upon the middle class, as the Power Elite (PE) is moving us in inexorably toward our techno-feudal future comprised of an elite ruling over a largely lower middle and poor class of workers.
Further to my NewsWithViews “Note” of November 15 last year regarding Iraq, Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr has just returned to Iraq (from 3 years of self-imposed exile in Iran) to play an important role in the government. Years ago, I said the Shiites could just bide their time until American forces left before they exercised greater dominance as the majority population. And because al-Sadr is anti-American and pro-Iranian, one might ask again whether the cost in American soldiers’ blood was worth it.]
At the level of higher education, the Illuminati had formed student societies at universities, for example in Germany at Tugenbund and Berschenschaften. William H. Russell matriculated through those institutions, and brought back the student societies’ ceremonies and rites to Yale University, establishing the secretive Skull & Bones (S&B) society there in the early 1830s. S&B acknowledges today that it came “from the German chapter,” which presented as a gift to S&B a painting that seems to depict the rites of the Regent degree of the Illuminati. Moreover, Laurence Sterne’s The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentlemen was recommended reading for Illuminati initiates. One of the most important characters in this book is “Uncle Toby,” which is also the name of the most important figure during S&B initiations.
