Ask most Americans where the country’s origins lie and they’ll point to the Mayflower and its settlers—whom we often think of as the earliest arrivals to our shores. But something existed even before that: Jamestown. Its founders had thoroughly different values than the Puritans, and their Masonic beliefs indelibly shaped America’s future.

Overview

Ask most Americans where the country’s origins lie and they’ll point to the Mayflower and its settlers—whom we often think of as the earliest arrivals to our shores. But something existed even before that: Jamestown. Its founders had thoroughly different values than the Puritans, and their Masonic beliefs indelibly shaped America’s future. This authoritative, accessible, and absorbing history takes a fresh look at the past to reveal the truth about why the United States is now run by Freemasons who are Christians, too. Drawing on original findings, and exhibiting a rich, in-depth understanding of the political and philosophical realities of the time, acclaimed author Nicholas Hagger argues that the new nation, conceived in liberty, was the Freemasons’ first step towards a new world order. He charts the connections between secret societies and libertarian ideals, explains how the influence of German Illuminati worked on the framers of the new republic, and shows the hand of Freemasonry at work at every turning point in America’s history—from the Civil War to the Cold War to today’s global struggles for democracy. It’s a fascinating subject, and one that will also be at the center of Dan Brown’s next book—so interest is sure to be high and the tie-in potential immense.

Hagger's book reveals another set of truths that 99.9% of Americans are oblivious to, having swallowed the expert propaganda of the  'Syndicate' -- Haggar's definition! Chris_N has an obvious axe to grind to maintain the 'party line'. Readers will learn about another level of obfuscation that really confirms who's in charge. This writer was advised to avoid the Masons by a valuable mentor early on. "You will be used, having poor immigrant roots - only those with very special talents ever have the 'truths' revealed". "Go thru life and maintain your independence! What rocked me most, was the revelations of how the 'Civil War' was concocted by the 'Syndicate  Masons', killing those hundreds of  thousands. Yes! All wars are concocted by the 'super rich moneylenders'. So what's new? How Lincoln, ever the pragmatist, cared nought about the abolition of slavery, so long as the South was destroyed, over whom they had no real control -- they not having to be obsequious to the bankers, their wealth back-up was their slaves. A most interesting read -- highly recommended. -- HA

First, organization and style make this a difficult read. The first third is a reverse-chronology of colonial settlement, often devolving into a rambling rapid-fire of who killed whom where. Names, locations, and religious sects are hurled at the reader like an arrow barrage, sprinkled with teasers - was this player from a rival Freemason faction, etc. - long before Freemasonry's origins and stance are even discussed. Hagger simply presumes you'll keep up. The primer is then followed by a less postulating Freemasons-run-all history of America. Up to the Constitution, some of it's believable. An acceptable argument is made that many patriots were Freemasons and deists who believed in religious freedom vice Christianity in particular, as supported by their church practices, education, and preferences in art and literature. Yet we're also acquainted with the layout of D.C., symbols on the dollar bill, etc., and from there things get hard to swallow. For because of the accepted degrees of secrecy in its hierarchy, supposedly even the Founding Fathers didn't grasp the true agenda: a world government, re-establishment of the Jerusalem kings, and thanks to a radical Germanic sect, worship of Satan. The U.S. was merely to be a Utopian Atlantis, strong only long enough to wipe out religion through tolerance. There's paradox and a long-term jihad-mindset everywhere. Hagger says the Constitution is simply the imprinting of the Freemason lodge system on our country, led silently (he doesn't say why) by Washington. Somehow, this equals thirteen united colonies. While the Masonic 13 supposedly figures into the U.S. seal (the French burned a Templar on Friday the 13th centuries ago), how we got to precisely 13 original colonies isn't even broached, nor how a wasp's nest of secret societies compares to a bicameral legislature and three government branches. Then comes the chapter on the Rothschild's funding of the Civil War, where virtually everyone but Lincoln, including his assassin was a Freemason, followed by a treatise where Freemasons and offshoots (essentially treated as one and the same) have run everything from WWII and the Cold War to the U.S., Soviet Bloc, and everything in-between. We're to accept or conclude that most of our presidents including FDR, Truman, etc., being 30-something-degree Masons, were privy to the true cause and, if not devil worshipers themselves, knowingly took direction from those who were. Don't waste your money on a new copy. It's a given that the rich and powerful are networked: by Masonry, Skull and Bones, the CIA, KGB, military-industrial-complex, etc. Whether these entities have always acted in concert is treated much more intelligently elsewhere, without the anti-religious undertones. I recommend Superclass by David Rothkopf, who has actually interviewed many of the power-players he writes about.
