Caution! — You Are Now Entering The Forbidden Zone

Only puny secrets need protection. Big discoveries are protected by public incredulity.

What is one to do when, in order to rule men, it is necessary to deceive them?
— Helena Blavatsky The Secret Doctrine

What you will read and see in this book is forbidden to you. Discovering these things could be highly dangerous to your health. Forbidden knowledge is sweet, but also deadly. Many men have died for revealing far fewer secrets than are found herein.

I am not being overdramatic nor attempting to be sensationalist. This is a warning: Make very sure that you possess the daring and the courage to proceed before you go any further.

Lingering in my mind are the names of courageous men who have gone before you and I and are now dead because they exposed the forbidden knowledge of the Illumined Ones.

  • Captain William Morgan — abducted, kidnapped and ritually murdered, his lifeless body dumped in a lake after he published a book unmasking Masonic secrets

  • Danny Casolaro—suicided, having his wrists cut and bleeding to death in a hotel room where he had gone to meet a confidential source

  • Paul Wilcher,  found nude, his body stiff as it sat on a toilet in his home, only days after he mailed his expose manuscript to U.S. Attorney-General Janet Reno

  • Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the world-famous classical composer, who paid the ultimate penalty, the Aqua Toffeta, arsenic poisoning that wracked his body

Poor Mozart. He, too, had revealed some of the secrets of Freemasonry. Blackballed by The Order, so frightened were his friends and family that not one human soul so much as attended his funeral. It is said that Mozart's faithful dog followed dutifully behind the lonely funeral wagon. The sad and forlorn canine was the only living creature in sight as the body of the man all of Europe had once toasted and applauded was taken to its burial site.

So, I ask you, dear friend, once again: Do you dare to discover the secrets many have been punished for merely knowing, let alone revealing? Are you sure, very sure, you want to enter the Forbidden Zone?

Immersed In Evil

You see, we are surrounded by evil on every side—quite literally immersed in it— but the wicked and the deceivers want us to believe that evildoing is exceptional. From childhood we have been taught that evil and corruption are the province of the few, that most people are virtuous, honest, and good, that most of our politicians truly have our interests at heart, that the social system, with the exception of just a few deviants and criminal types, is basically sound.

With such assurances, most people breathe a deep sigh of relief. "Don't worry, be happy," said the words of a fun-time novelty song a decade ago. And most of us appreciate and agree with that sentiment. After all, it's not nice to be negative, to be a skeptic in the midst of a nation of wannabe happy faces.

Unfortunately, the masses who believe this nonsense have been gulled and are destined to receive, very soon, a rude shock and an abrupt awakening.

Grand Deception

As Christopher Mark observed recently in an insight-filled article entitled "Grand Deception: The Theft of America and the World,"

"The world is completely corrupt beyond your wildest dreams, and the United States is, perhaps, the most gullible of all nations."1

Mark goes on to explain:

For now, grasp this: The world you believe exists does not exist. We live in a form of the Matrix, not unlike the world portrayed in John Carpenter's movie, "They Live," except that high government officials and international bankers are the elite who control all you see and hear as did the aliens portrayed in the movie. 2

But, the foolish may object, we have the media to protect us from the corrupt. We cannot be deceived as long as there is a free press to act as our watchdog.

Ah, but there's the rub. There is no free press!


Christopher Mark adds:

The news is a farce. As is the case with the financial institutions, which are concentrated in the hands of the few, long ago the media was bought and paid for... What you read and what you see on a daily basis is largely manufactured. You are being lied to each and every day.3

Thomas Mann, the keen social observer and philosopher, once suggested that men are erroneously taught to believe that it is forbidden and wrong to expose the works of darkness, or to reveal the machinations of evildoers, especially evildoers who, though they act in hellish ways, the deceived world at large so obviously holds in the highest regard:

That is the secret delight and security of hell, that it is not to be informed on, that it is protected from speech, that it just is, but cannot be made public in the newspaper, or be brought by any word to critical knowledge.4

Secret Delight

How interesting the realization that, as Thomas Mann puts it, hell takes "secret delight" in its ability to keep secrets. Proverbs 9:13-18 seems to have a relation to this. It states:

A foolish woman sitteth in the high place of the city, To call passengers who go right on their ways: she saith to him, bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

Why do the Illuminati value secrecy so highly? Why all the mysterious, encoded signs, handshakes, symbols, language, and codes? One finds many reasons. For one thing, the psychopath — these are the kind of people who are Illuminists — seems to be drawn to the darkness, to mysterious perversions and deep occultism.

"Nothing so arouses the deep mind's attention than the call of the dark, arcane and mysterious," Paul Huston writes in his book, Mastering Witchcraft.5

Secrecy is deemed essential amongst witchcraft sects, and witchcraft is, in essence, Illuminism.


Huston explains:

"Now witchcraft consists of knowledge, and knowledge brings power. Power shared is power lost. Although we have entered the Age of Aquarius, along with its attendant freedom and loosening of restrictions, it will still be very much in your interests as a witch to shroud certain of your doings in a reasonable veil of secrecy."6

As you will discover in studying the pages of , the Illuminati certainly do have much to hide. Seeing as how the leaders of this notorious organization are responsible for hardship, bloodshed and revolutionary terror on a global scale, if their secrets were found out, there would be hell to pay. If the masses ever were to wake up from their trance and begin to understand just how horribly they have been deceived, they would angrily rise enmasse and string up the elite from the nearest light pole.

The Most Terrible Secret of All

But there's also the matter of the most terrible secret of all, the secret that, if  discovered, would sound the death knell for the Illuminati and Freemasonry. Manly P. Hall, 33°, touched on this in his book, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy:

Freemasonry is a fraternity within a Fraternity — an outer organization, concealing an inner brotherhood of the elect. The invisible society is a secret fraternity dedicated to a MYSTERIOUS SECRET.7

As Hall alludes, Freemasonry hides its greatest secret even from its membership at large—only an invisible "inner brotherhood" is entrusted with it.

Robert Guffey, writing in the book, The Conspiracy Reader, reports that the "cryptocrats," as he calls the elite, consider most Americans to be mere sheep who must be kept from discovering "the black cauldron of dirty secrets" hidden to them.8 The MYSTERIOUS SECRET of which Manly P. Hall, 33° writes, surely falls into this category of dirty secrets kept squirreled away in the black cauldron.

The dirtiest secret found inside that black cauldron —THE MYSTERIOUS SECRET—is this:

That the unknown "God" worshipped by the Masons and called by such hazy, nebulous names as the Great Architect of the Universe and by codenames such as Abaddon, Mahabone, and Jahbuhlun, is actually none other than Satan, or Lucifer.

That is the greatest of secrets that the Illuminati must shield from view.

The Illuminated (so-called "enlightened") man who knows this darkest of secrets is taught by his superiors and comes to believe that all who are in on the secret are somehow more sophisticated, urbane, intelligent, and spiritually astute, than the uncouth, vulgar, and coarse people who stupidly follow after the God of the Bible . Stupid people deserve to be deceived, say the Masons and Illuminists. Thus, as Emile Grillot DeGivry comments, the elite "conceal in order to baffle the vulgar."9

Marie Roberts and Hugh Ormsby-Lennon, in Secret Texts: The Literature of Secret Societies, note that the rituals, rites, symbols, emblems, and other tools of the secret societies are "Mysteries that must not be revealed to the profane, lewd, and unworthy."10


How does it feel, dear reader, to realize that the wicked men of the Illuminati and of the Lodge and other secret societies consider you, me, and everyone outside their own special preserve, as "profane, lewd, and unworthy?"

Symbols as Secrets

To maintain their rotten and corrupt body of secrets, the Illuminati leaders and groups employ symbols. The rites, ceremonies, hand signs, and grips of the Illuminists are based on the science and art of symbolism.

It is said that symbolism began as recorded in the Bible's book of Genesis when God put a "mark" or sign on Cain who had slain his brother, Abel. Throughout human history, marks, signs, pictures, and hieroglyphs came to be used to convey words, ideas, concepts, and secrets.

"By symbols," wrote Thomas Carlyle in Sartor Resartus, "is man guided and commanded, made happy made wretched. He everywhere finds himself surrounded with symbols, recognized as such or not recognized."11

As you'll discover in , the elite use many symbols and signs to hide and obfuscate their magical work and alchemy. In the Blue Lodge (the first three degrees), the initiate takes an oath of obligation, pledging:

I will always hail, EVER CONCEAL, AND NEVER REVEAL, any of the arts, parts, or points of the hidden mysteries of Ancient Free Masonry... 12

The Order of the Eastern Star, the women's Masonic organization, informs its new members that the Order teaches them of their duties and obligations "by means of SECRET SIGNS AND PASSWORDS."13 The initiate is further instructed that she must bind herself "to preserve the most sacred SECRECY respecting the work of the Order."14

Symbols are more than just pictures. Consider: When you and I, as patriotic citizens, see the red, white, and blue flag of the U.S.A. waving aloft, many emotions are aroused in our minds and hearts. Memories sometimes gush forth, feelings of love of country, home, and family; perhaps deep appreciation for our country's founders, its Constitution, and for the soldiers and servicemen who have died to protect and keep us free. All this bound up in just one symbol.

To the Masons and other Illuminists, their occult symbols also embody a deep and varied set of meanings. Alex Home, in Sources of Masonic Symbolism, distinguishes between a mere "emblem" and a "symbol." An emblem is something that stands for something else, he says, while "a symbol has a moral and spiritual meaning."15

That "moral and spiritual meaning" is, of necessity, reserved as secret in nature by these corrupt cultists, because, if their secrets should be exposed to the light, their Great Work and Grand Plan would be vulnerable to destruction, as it should be. But kept secret, the symbols and signs of the Illuminati exert a strong force.


Foster Bailey, 33°, in The Spirit of Freemasonry, explains:

A symbol veils or hides a secret, and it is that which veils mysterious forces. These energies when released can have a potent effect.16

To the man whose entire life is immersed in magical symbols, signs, and codes, and who has taken a solemn oath to maintain secrecy in fear of disclosure, the world takes on a supernatural, paranoid quality. Indeed, such men are schizophrenic in tendency, being torn between their role in the normal everyday world and their underground existence in the sordid world of their occult fraternity. Illuminists are, indeed, very dangerous men.

Ancient Origins—Babylonian

Now it is important to understand that almost all the symbols and signs of the elite are very ancient in origin. Former Scottish Rite Freemasonry Sovereign Grand Commander Henry C. Clausen, 33°, who was appointed in 1942 by President Roosevelt to head up the Commission to Investigate the Pearl Harbor Attack, writes that the footsteps of The Order go deep, and its symbols are thousands of years old.

"They arose in ancient ages," Clausen states, "The signs, symbols, and inscriptions come to us from across long, drifting centuries and will be found in ancient Sumerian clay tablet libraries of the cities of Lir, Lagash, and others of the first  true urban civilization. This, occurred about 600 years before Egypt was civilized..."17

In other words, Clausen is telling his Masonic readers that their signs and symbols came from Babylon. The Bible warns that the Ancient Mystery Religion of wicked Babylon will bounce back into demonic prevalence in the last days (see Revelation 13, 17, and 18), and here we have the Sovereign Grand Commander, the international chieftain of the Masonic Lodge, informing us of the Babylonian origins of the secret symbols and signs of his Illuminist Order.

When we realize that, for the elite, their symbols are claimed to be infused with dynamic life—to be real things, active images that make and testify and create, we begin to comprehend the powerful and explosive meaning with which the Illuminati endow their signs and symbols.

To them, these are not just geometric shapes, architectural patterns, lines, and circles. Their signs and symbols both live and possess creative power. They are archetypes and thought-forms. In sum, they are real things that perform. One is reminded, therefore, of the "image of the beast" which, in the last days, is prophesied to both move about and to speak.

Pity the Poor, Hoodwinked Mason It's bad enough that the elite hide their dirty little (and big) secrets behind such smoke screens as secret hand signs, codes, etc. But what is remarkably obscene is that they hoodwink their own people.

The highest levels of the Freemasons, for example, have a special word for the manner in which they seek to deceive and mislead not only the "profane" (you and me!) but the vast majority of fellow Masons. That word is hoodwink. It is defined as the effort put forth by the lying men at the top echelons to keep lower-level members in darkness.

In the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, editor Dr. Albert Mackey, 33°, a former Sovereign Grand Commander, claims that secrecy, silence, and deceit—in other words, hoodwink, is an absolute necessity so that, "the mysteries of our art should be preserved."18

Helena Blavatsky, co-Mason and founder of Theosophy, was unusually candid when she once remarked,

"What is one to do, when in order to rule men, it is necessary to deceive them?... For almost invariably the more simple, the more silly, and the more gross the phenomenon, the more likely it is to succeed."19

Listen to the admission of Albert Pike, former Sovereign Grand Commander who Masonic historian Manley P. Hall, 33°, magnificently praised as a "Masonic Prometheus...a king among men by the divine right of merit:"

Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism, and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light, from them, and to draw them away from it. 20

What impudence! What arrogance! Pike is letting us in on the deceit. Even if a man is a Mason, he may not be adjudged worthy of being promoted as one of the "Adepts and Sages, or the Elect." In that case, along with non-Masons, he is purposely misled by "false explanations and misinterpretations."



Secret Doctrine Withheld



George Steinmetz, yet another Masonic up to and including the 33rd. author, notes,

"There is a SECRET DOCTRINE in Freemasonry! That secret doctrine is concealed, rather than revealed by the very lectures which, we (Masons) are told, offer a rational explanation of the ceremonies of initiation."21

Oh my! So the poor Masons must sit and listen to a bunch of boring lectures, with superiors rattling on and on about what are described as the "Mysteries," when, really, it's all just malarkey because the true explanations —the SECRET DOCTRINE —is concealed to all except the few favored "Adepts."

Hoodwinked! Pity the poor, foolish man who becomes a Freemason! In the very first
degree ritual, that of Entered Apprentice, a blindfold is put over his eyes, and a cable-tow
is hung around his neck.
Symbolically, the dumb candidate is "HOODWINKED."
Little does he know that his superiors intentionally set out
to deceive the candidate and they contrive their deceit
through all the ritual degrees up to and including the 33rd.


This is why, when I interview lower-level Masonic friends of mine who are more than happy to privately confide to me all the "secrets" they have learned, I often find that almost everything they think they know is pure junk. The hard facts—the really useful info —is reserved for the Masonic muckety-mucks, though it may be discovered with diligent investigation by others, too, no matter how much the Masonic order vainly attempts to conceal and deny.

As Albert Pike relates,

"What is most worth knowing in Masonry is never very openly taught. The symbols are displayed, but they are mute. It is by hints only... that the initiate is put upon the track of the hidden secret." 22

How does one finally discover the inner secrets of Freemasonry? My own experience provides the answer. It has taken me many years of meticulous research and study of the Ancient Mystery Religions of Babylon, Sumeria, Greece, Rome, China, etc. I have spent many nights reading old textbooks and treatises on medieval and occult subjects; conducted intensive investigation of the rituals and symbols of scores of secret societies and orders; and spent years examining the true teachings and practices of New Ageism, witchcraft and Satanism.

Masonic expert Lynn F. Perkins alludes to the gigantic amount of extracurricular research and work needed to uncover the greatest secrets of the Masonic Fraternity. He writes:

"The true wisdom is concealed and hidden, not only from those who do not join the Masonic Order but also from those who "take" the degrees; and it will remain hidden until each Mason seeks revelation and finds the Truth for himself. There are no interpretations in the Ritual; they have to be sought elsewhere."23

Pike, echoing Steinmetz, Hall, Perkins and all the other high-level Masonic authorities, goes so far as to mock and disparage lower-level Masons, especially those who have earned only the first three degrees ("the Blue degrees"). After acknowledging that the lower-level brethren are "intentionally misled," he goes on to say that it is not intended that the initiate understand the symbols and deepest secrets of the Order, but worse, the Masonic Lodge's rituals and lectures are designed so that the lower-level Masons shall imagine he does understand them! It is only at a later time, as he has moved up the ladder of degrees, that the purposely dumbed-down Mason discovers he's been had, that he's been played for a fool. In other words, he's been hoodwinked!

So, in effect, Masons are lied to, tricked, made fun of, and intentionally led astray, with only a little knowledge added to their brain reservoirs as they advance up the chain. Meanwhile, the poor, pitiful souls imagine they are really in on all the super-duper secrets of the Craft. Their Masonic superiors play them all for suckers.

P.T. Barnum, of Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus fame, surely was right when he exclaimed,

"There's a sucker born every minute."

To which yours truly, author of , might add:

"...and a 32nd or 33rd degree Mason is behind the veil laughing his head off and rolling in the aisle every time a new sucker is initiated into the 1st degree of Freemasonry."

Shining Light on the Darkness

The Brotherhood of Darkness, as a good friend of mine, Dr. Stanley Monteith, calls the Illuminati, is quite confident it can easily maintain the highest level of secrecy regarding the actual meaning and import of its signs and symbols. Its leaders believe they can even afford to communicate these signals and messages in plain sight, sure in the knowledge that the trance-like masses are incapable of recognizing the awful, ongoing masquerade of deception that stares them right in the face.

Martin Short, who authored a book, Inside the Brotherhood, exposing the Masonic Order inside Great Britain, observed that Masons, believing their secrets to be oblivious to detection, are known to mutter words of near-contempt as they sing a little ditty called "The Entered Apprentice's Song."


A verse of this melody goes:

The world is in pain, Our secrets to gain. And still let them wonder and gaze on; They ne'er can divine, the Word or the Sign Of a Free and Accepted Mason 24

Oh, we can't, can we? Perhaps it is true that the uninformed "world" at large cannot divine the Word and Sign of the Mason, but the readers of  shall do exactly that. Let us therefore move forward with eager anticipation as we uncover in this book many of the most precious and despicable secrets of the elite —things they never in a million years thought we would discover.



Lives of Quiet Desperation... and Torment


Why have the Illuminists succeeded in their hoodwinking efforts up to now? Is it not because of the gullibility of the general public? It has been said that, "most men lead lives of quiet desperation." This is true, and so it is that in their silent morass of desperation, most seek to dull their senses through alcohol, drugs, sex, and entertainment. Tormented within, but doing their utmost to keep a smile on their faces, unable to face the truth, too frightened to even admit to themselves that anything is awry, most men do not even know who their tormentors really are.

To escape reality, these men shrink from the facts, hoping against hope that all will turn out satisfactory in the end. The reality that a monstrous conspiracy exists against them and against their loved ones becomes an enormous burden they simply cannot bear. Cowards, it seems, die a thousand deaths.

Swedish researcher Juri Lina, whose book, Architects of Deception, is a revealing, fact-filled expose of the secret society of Freemasonry, warns that the ideology of "Illuminism," propagated by international Freemasonry and other secret elite groups, is an overwhelming, hidden danger to all of us. It has already brought the most violent upheavals and revolutions and is responsible for the "moral and spiritual degeneration of the individual."25

Yet astonishingly, writes Lina, most men and women are hopelessly oblivious to the very forces that most affect their lives on a daily and continuing basis.


Lina consequently puts forth this word of caution:

Those who do not examine the different aspects of the conspiracy will remain incapable of understanding the world... Our rulers want us to believe that a lack of historical knowledge and ignorance about the secrets of nature constitutes true knowledge.26

Lina laments the rampant ignorance by the masses who possess little or no understanding of the vast evil on their very doorstep about to break down the door and enter therein. Wisely, he contends that the ignorant, while not the inventors of evil things, nevertheless are accomplices and contributors to evil.

"Not being aware of these facts," he writes, "is in itself an evil because ignorance serves evil."27

"The little Man Who Wasn't There"

Dr. Peter Ruckman, author of many fine books exposing the conspiracy and defending the Bible, in his newsletter recently penned an article about "The Little Man Who Wasn't There."28 Ruckman sagely observed that historians, like other establishment "experts," can scarcely be trusted, for they invariably write a history they would like to believe.


They limit themselves to reporting only that which comports and agrees with the socially accepted view of history and "truth." If a set of facts is unpleasant or inconvenient to the officially approved mantra, or version, of events, reality must suffer. Facts must become non-facts and lies must be converted into "reliable truths."


Ruckman remarks:

When I was a boy we repeated several little doggerels that turned out to be gems of wisdom in content. One went:

"Last night I saw upon the stair a little man who wasn't there; he wasn't there again today; oh gee, I wish he'd go away!29
"Some nonexistent spooks," Ruckman adds, "are very persistent."30

In , we shine a bright spotlight on the little man sitting on the stair, and — voila! — we discover the incontrovertible fact that he is not only there, he is not a little man at all. He's a giant, dark, wicked, corrupt, conspiring, sly, cunning, devious, dangerous ogre who fully deserves all the contemptible attention we can focus on him. He's more than a spook, he's a bloodsucking parasite, a monster who is sitting on the stair blocking us from entering, a criminal thug lying in wait to waylay you and me and rob us of our belongings, our health, our very lives.

Without him sitting there detrimentally blocking our path, the world would be a far better place. Certainly a safer and happier place.

"Two Plus Two Make Four"

Bob Whitaker, a South Carolinian who has done many fine and adventurous things in his life, teaching college classes, serving as a senior staffer on Capitol Hill, and writing copy for the Voice of America radio broadcast, points out that anyone today who simply believes the obvious is ignorantly and unfairly branded an extremist, a conspiracy-monger, a racist, or worse. Men are not free, Whitaker suggests, to tell the truth:

In George Orwell's book 1984, it turns out that the whole hideous totalitarianism that crushed the hero is based on ending one simple, useless-sounding freedom; "Freedom," it says, "is the freedom to say that two plus two make four."31

How incredible! Whitaker is right on target. Who would have ever thought that in the once great United States of America would reside almost 300 million souls, virtually every one of whom today is shaking in his boots, quivering, numb with fear over what dreadful things might happen if he just once simply put his foot down, gritted his teeth, and spit out the words:

I see the little man on the stair. He is there! And two plus two makes four. And that's all there is to it. Period!

How sad that most men, by their cowardly silence, become secret collaborators, acquiescing in their own enslavement. What a marvelous and wonderful world this would be if just a small group of honest and thoughtful, courageous men and women would view the revealing and provocative photographs, illustrations, and proofs in and exclaim with all their might in a loud, loud voice to all within hearing range:

"I see it. I no longer will remain bound by the willful ignorance that binds the multitudes. I will tell others. I will speak out until, someday, maybe soon, the whole, rotten occult Illuminati establishment comes crashing down!"
