Conspiracy Dreams

My regular readers will have noticed that I spend very little time on what might be termed conspiracy theories, or at least the fringe of that genre. I like verifiable facts, not wild speculations. After a conspiracy discussion with a relative over the weekend, I felt the desire to write this post.

I do believe in the concept of conspiracy, or cabal. But, what is the definition of a conspiracy? Webster’s 1828 gives the first definition of conspiracy as: “A combination of men for an evil purpose; an agreement between two or more persons, to commit some crime in consort; particularly, a combination to commit treason, or excite sedition or insurrection against the government of a state; a plot, as a conspiracy against the life of a king, a conspiracy against the government. In this sense of the world, I believe in conspiracies, and think human history is filled with them.

People untie to pursue common interests, whether these interests have a political, economic, religious, or cultural goal. This is just a common sense view of human nature and verifiable history.

A relative had recently viewed a TV show on conspiracies –specifically Freemasons, Bilderberg, and the Illuminati. Ah yes. I believe it aired on the American History channel. She seemed to think it was a cover-up of the truth –in which she believes that Freemasons figure prominently. She seemed to connect Bilderberg and the much fabled Illuminati. I did not view this show, so I am going on what she told me of its topics.

Somehow, this show also attempted to make a connection of the elaborate crypt built for George Washington under the U.S. Capitol rotunda to these secret societies. It was completed long after Washington’s death, and remains empty. Washington’s body still rests at Mount Vernon, as it always has. The “crypt” now houses statues of prominent early Americans and is open to visitors.

Perhaps I should quote myself from the Epilogue of my recent book Bloggings Of An Amerikaner. “In the past few years, I have read expose type books on communism, the CFR, the UN, Bilderberg, Freemasonry, Jesuits, and the Jews. I am tired. I oppose modern Masonry, but before one freaks out about George Washington being a 3rd degree Blue Lodge Mason who attended less than two dozen Lodge meetings in his life (long before Pike and Mackey made Masonry openly occultic) please see David Barton’s book The Question of Freemasonry and the Founding Fathers. (Regrettably, Barton has a blind spot on race and the JQ)”.

One might note that one entity that I did not mention in the above paragraph was the “Illuminati”. My relative seemed worked up about the Illuminati, and how it was allegedly connected to it all and currently running the show. Adam Weishaupt and the short lived Bavarian Order of the Illuminati were broken up about 200 years ago. I see no hard evidence to lead me to believe that the Illuminati currently exists as a formal organization, much less as a secret society with bizarre religious rituals that controls world events.

I joke that the Illuminati is whoever one wants to fantasize that it is, no facts or evidence required. I guess it just “is” or something. Much like fibromyalgia is likely not an actual disease but a list of symptoms that the medical profession threw a name on, the Illuminati is a way to talk about “them” without bothering to do any serious research into who the verifiable characters involved in these conspiracies are, or who they are funded by or connected to.

I am not and have never been a member of the Freemasons. I do not think a Christian should join the Masons. I think Masonry has clearly Jewish undertones, and that post-1865 Freemasonry in America has occultic elements. But that does not mean it was openly occultic in the Founder’s day; it also does not mean that they control the world, or that Blue Lodge level Masons even understand the occutlic nature of some of the ceremonies. Perhaps people obsess about Freemasonry and the fantasy Illuminati so that they do not have to look at the big picture –or address the JQ. If you find someone deep into anti-Masonry, you have likely found someone totally blind to the role of Jews in world affairs –and likely also a Christian Zionist.

Conspiracy facts based on research and logic is one thing, wild and vague conspiracy is another thing altogether. Do not be distracted by random conjectures, especially when there is little to no evidence to prove them and well documented trails leading elsewhere in the search for the culprits.

I am a Christian (Sovereign Grace/ Reformed Baptist), American of European bloodline, admirer of America's Founding Fathers, author, White Nationalist, Kinist, advocate for the Amerikaner identity concept, lifelong resident of Southern Indiana in the "Greater Appalachia" area of the South, and aspiring homesteader. I published my first book "A Bible Based View Of Liberty And Free Governments" in May 2013. It is no longer in print. My second book, Putnam Liberty Notes, was published in print form in March 2016, and is for sale on Amazon.com. In May 2016 I started my own blog here at WordPress to promote this book. In early August 2016 I published my third book, "As America Fades". As America Fades is basically a sequel to Putnam Liberty Notes and is a 28 essay, 96 page little book of commentary articles on America, liberty, current events, race, personal security, and the coming police state. On January 13, 2017 I published my fourth book, "Bloggings Of An Amerikaner". "BOAA" is the third volume in my little series, and places special emphasis on the Amerikaner identity concept. All three are only $5 each, and are available on both Amazon and directly through my printer on the CreateSpace website. If you are new to the Amerikaner concept, please see my November 2016 introductory article "I am an Amerikaner" on this blog at this link: https://putnamlibertynotes.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/i-am-an-amerikaner/
