[Note: With the national elections only two weeks away, few people seem to realize President Obama’s dirty little secret. That is he will not be all that sad if the Republicans win control of the U.S. House and/or Senate. He figures that two years from now if the economy is better, he’ll be able to win re-election based upon that. But if things aren’t better, he plans to say that’s the fault of the Republicans who control the House and/or Senate. He’ll then say that since he’s not to blame, the people should therefore re-elect him as President.]
The Illuminati (called “The Order” by its members) was a secret society founded on May 1, 1776 by Adam Weishaupt. According to University of Edinburgh professor (and General Secretary of the Royal Society of Edinburgh) John Robinson in Proofs of a Conspiracy (1798), its purpose was to root out all religion and ordinary morality, abolish national distinctions, demean patriotism, and “rule the world.”
Weishaupt had been a Jesuit and professor of Canon Law at the University at Ingolstadt (Bavaria), and he initially called his secret society Perfektibilisten. According to Will and Ariel Durant in Rousseau and Revolution (1967), Weishaupt “followed the model of the Society of Jesus [Jesuits], divided his associates into grades of initiation, and pledged them to obey their leaders in a campaign to ‘unite all men capable of independent thought,’ make man ‘a masterpiece of reason, and thus attain highest perfection in the art of government’.” Weishaupt said, “Reason will be the only code of man…. When at last reason becomes the religion of man, so will the problem be solved.” To Weishaupt (Illuminati code name Spartacus), the “problem” was all authority, monarchical and religious, as well as ownership of private property.
