Gawker Disinfo: Comprehensive Rebuttal

Gawker Disinfo: Comprehensive Rebuttal

I really did not plan on writing this much today; but, after reading the below titled post from by Max Read, I felt compelled to set the record straight.  I am not sure if this writer is a disinfo agent or not; but, he clearly did not do his homework. Many of his facts are not facts at all; but, disinformation.  I am really surprised pyramids and the Illuminati are getting this much “disinformation” press this week.  They must be worried too much knowledge is being shared across the web. So they pay guys like this writer to share disinfo.

I basically copied his entire piece of this literary trash below and addressed the facts (by us), in red, below his dribble. Please read this and share with as many people as you can.

Shortly before JFK was killed he spoke of a global secret society.

A Comprehensive Guide to the Illuminati, the Conspiracy Theory That Connects Jay-Z and Queen Elizabeth

by Max Read

Why did Jay-Z and Beyoncé name their kid “Blue Ivy”? What was the deal with Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show? Why did Whitney Houston die? Some people might say that “famous people are weird and sad” is the answer to all three questions. But no, the answer is: The Illuminati. Who? Allow us to explain.

Note: to best service our readers, we’ve divided this guide into two sections — first, the believer’s guide; second, the skeptic’s guide.

The Believer’s Guide

What is the Illuminati?

The Illuminati is an ancient and shadowy group of elites who control nearly every aspect of life on this planet — from finance and government to religion and culture.

Fact: The Illuminati was actually formed by Johann Adam Weishaupt in the 17th century in Bavaria. This secret order was based on world domination as reflected in the Book the Protocols of Zion. In this book were 24 protocols for taking over the world. We are in the 24th protocol now.

These plans were actually discovered by the Government of Bavaria and Weishaupt was exiled and banned from ever returning. This is how disturbing the protocol agenda was perceived by the Government. He was initiated into a Masonic Lodge in Munich, 1777,  where he continued his agenda to members who became like-minded. This is how the Illuminati became intertwined with the Freemasons.

Proof of recruiting activities of the Freemason/Illuminati efforts was reflected in the works of John Robison. He was a professor of natural philosophy at University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Robison was approached and asked to join the Illuminati. He considered but found the agenda disturbing and declined. In 1798, he wrote a book, Proofs of a Conspiracy, where he wrote:

“An association has been formed for the express purposes of rooting out all the religious establishments and overturning all existing governments … the leaders would rule the World with uncontrollable power, while all the rest would be employed as tools of the ambition of their unknown superiors.”

The book was sent to George Washington, who replied:

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavored to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation).”

As you can see the Illuminati is very real and a historical fact. Not a made up whimsical fancy by disenfranchised Black people in America. All you have to do now is find out how many US Presidents have been Freemasons. Also, why most of the Presidents are related by bloodline? Additionally, the Who’s Who of the worlds political elite are in fact Freemasons.

Who is in the Illuminati?

The Illuminati is made up of the world’s political and financial elite, and also, rappers. Theoretically, membership rolls are kept secret, but most YouTube intellectuals agree that the following people are members:

• Barack Obama
• the Pope
• Queen Elizabeth II
• George Soros
• Ben Bernanke
• George W. Bush
• Jay-Z
• Kanye West
• Rihanna
• Bob Dylan
• Beyoncé
• Lady Gaga
• Jim Carrey
• Willow Smith

Fact: The Illuminati recruited affluent men of power, from the 17th century to the present. Most of them in the beginning were white males. A good references to the recruiting practices are covered in Dr. John Coleman’s book, The Committee of 300. You can see the pathology of recruitment practices and human resources needed to implement the Protocols the Zion.

If anything Black people in America would be recruited to keep society first entertained and then to focus on materialism and carnal desires, as a distraction. Jay Z has been linked to the Illuminati because of his association with the Rockefeller family. Additionally, Jay Z has been linked to the occult because he wore a black hoodie with the words, “Do what thou whilst”, which is the number one law of the Book of Law, penned by Aleister Crowley, aka, The Father of Satanism.

What do the Illuminati do?

Oh, you know, conspiracy stuff. Assassinations, currency manipulation, Super Bowl halftime shows. All executed through puppet institutions and groups like the Federal Reserve, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Freemasons, and Def Jam Recordings. And all carefully controlled and hidden to ensure that their meddling in world affairs will remain secret.

Fact: The Illuminati agenda is to implement the Protocols of Zion. According to the historical beginnings of the Illuminati,  everything is done in secret. Again, read the response of George Washington. He refers to the Illuminati agenda as “diabolical”. Again read the Protocols of Zion and the Committee of 300 to understand the mechanics and hierarchy. 

This is sounding more plausible by the minute. What’s the end goal of the Illuminati?

The end goal of the Illuminati is to establish a one-world authoritarian government known as the New World Order.

Fact: There is a religion within the Illuminati which requires you to renounce faith in Jesus Christ. That should say it all.  

…and then?

Here, theories differ. Some of the internet’s finest minds, writing on scholarly websites like Yahoo Answers, believe that forced conversion to homosexuality will be a top agenda item in the New World Order. Others claim the first order of business will be to round all non-Illuminati up into FEMA camps, possibly as part of a deal struck with aliens in Roswell. Many, if not most, experts believe that the New World Order will be a front for the rise of the Antichrist.

Fact: The prophetic books of the Bible offer insight into the outcome of the Protocols of Zion.

The Antichrist?

Yes. The Illuminati is made up of Satanists.

Fact: The Freemason/Illuminati were in fact infiltrated by Satanist, Aleister Crowley, This also is a historical fact.

“In about 1904 Crowley was initiated into Craft Freemasonry in Anglo-Saxon Lodge No. 343, recognized, as of 1964, under the jurisdiction of the Grande Loge Nationale Française in Paris as No. 103. At the time it was under the jurisdiction of the Grande Loge de France, and so was not recognized by the United Grand Lodge of England as a regular masonic body. He was initiated, passed and raised over a period of several months in 1904. It is suggested but unconfirmed that he was proposed by a country parson from Oxfordshire.”

Aleister Crowley made no secret how much he hated Jesus Christ, just Google him. He was in fact a Freemason.

Even the Pope?

I can see how it’s confusing. The Pope is actually a Satanist, just like Jay-Z and the Queen of England. (He might even be the Antichrist.) In fact, the whole Catholic church is just a continuation of Babylonian paganism, didn’t you know? They keep demons trapped inside the Pentagon, which is why it’s, you know, pentagonal.

Fact: The current Pope was a Nazi. He participated in the Nazi Youth Program and never protested. Many people now know Hitler was an occultist as well. He is also promoting Space Aliens are our brothers. The fruit does not fall far from the tree.

Okay. How can I tell who’s in the Illuminati?

I know this sounds counter intuitive, but prominent Illuminati members frequently flag their Illuminati connections. Like how in Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” video, there’s that goat head-shaped star formation? Or have you ever seen Jay-Z’s video for “On to the Next One”? It has a goat skull in it. Goats, bro.

Fact: There is no real way to know who is in but only by the agenda unfolding. As said before Jay Z markets the laws of a Satanist and he has been heard saying, “That I is why I never read the Bible.” Jay Z also promotes praying to many deities in his music. A pastor G. Craig Lewis, played Jay Z’s song 666 backwards and it clearly says, “Murder, Murder, Jesus”. Many of his videos are filled with occult symbols or motifs.

Goat heads are an Illuminati symbol?

Goat heads represents Baphomet, the goat-headed god beloved by 19th-century occultists. It’s not the only weird occult reference in “On to the Next One.” The creepy guy with the crow, Jay throwing devil horns, the, uh, actual Masonic symbol — all of Hov’s (that’s right: Hov) videos are filled with Illuminati and occult symbolism. So are Lady Gaga’s: that pink triangle and unicorn that you thought was some campy gay reference? Actually symbols of the immaculate conception of a new order of humanity. So are Kanye’s videos, especially “Power.”

Fact: The symbol of the Illuminati is the “all seeing eye”, not the goat head. The “goat head” Baphomet symbol actually has its origins in ancient Egypt, Mendes. It was a place where sorcerers and sorceress would perform black rites to the gods including human sacrifice and  having sex with the goat. This practice has never died and many occult groups still evoke the power of the goat head symbolism.

But how will the Illuminati possibly pull off their plan for secret world domination if they’re constantly advertising their own existence?

Hey! Did I tell you about Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime show?

Fact: That is easy. People are not aware of the past so they do not understand what they are seeing. If you do not understand the past, you will never understand the future.

Ooh, no, tell me.

It was obviously a satanic ritual. The color scheme was red and black. She had horns on her helmet. The show happened within 48 hours of the full moon. Her male dancers formed a pyramid, a Masonic symbol. It ended with the phrase “World Peace” — as in, “New World Order Peace.” And LMFAO was there.

Fact: Madonna was actually dressed exactly like the Sumerian/Babylonian Goddess Innana. These were the same pagan deities the people were warned about in the Old Testament. The symbols used during the show above the stage were actually Sumerian/Babylonian/Egyptian. This is the connection.

LMFAO is Illuminati?

Can you think of any other reason for their success?

Fact: Not touching this one, too silly.

But why would the Illuminati hold a Satanic ritual during the biggest television even of the year?

To celebrate the upcoming assassination of Whitney Houston.

Fact: Satanic rituals in ancient times were very similar. They needed large crowds to experience the rituals in conjunction with precise astronomical alignments. It is essentially an “E” motional (energy in motion) hijack. You would clearly have to study occult rituals of ancients and present. The author of this piece has not done this.

The Illuminati killed Whitney Houston? But… why?

For two reasons: one, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth, and two, to make room in the Illuminati for Blue Ivy Carter.

Fact: Many occult numbers and astrological alignments are synthesized into this event. There was also unorthodox police work executed at the scene. Plus her body stayed in the room for 11 hours before being carted away.  Also, you can see the Freemason symbol from an aerial view of where she stayed. Not possible to have this many coincidences surrounding one death, or is it?


Who else have the Illuminati killed?

Oh, you name it — J.F.K., 2Pac, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson. Heath Ledger’s death was a ritualistic sacrifice. Aaliyah was killed by Dame Dash so he could become famous.

Fact: The Illuminati would not waste time with these people, except JFK. Still think a magic bullet killed him? The real perpetrators were never caught.

Wow. That makes sense.

I know. And there’s stuff we haven’t even covered!

Fact: Max has not really taken the time to thoroughly investigate anything in this article. In fact this took him no time to write.

There’s stuff we haven’t covered?

Just a couple, things, like the Bilderberg Group, reptoids, clockwork elves, the Greys, the Rosicrucians, the Knights Templar, and Planet X.

Fact: Now he is clouding the issue. He did add the Bilderberg Group which is mostly likely a necessary mechanism of the Protocols of Zion.

I really feel like I’ve learned a lot from this guide. Where can I learn more about the Illuminati?

I highly recommend reading the very factual Behold a Pale Horse and The Biggest Secret — but you can also find a lot of information on such rigorous and learned websites as Godlike Productions, Vigilant Citizen, Above Top Secret and Prison Planet, the website of Austin radio host Alex Jones. Finally, of course, a great deal of important information is distributed on Twitter, YouTube, and Yahoo Answers.

Fact: Just read, Proofs of a Conspiracy, it is an insiders account of the Freemason/Illuminati agenda

The Skeptic’s Guide

What is the Illuminati?

A defunct German secret society of freethinkers, humanists and Enlightenment academics, founded in 1776 and infiltrated and shut down by Bavarian authorities about a decade later.

Fact: It was not shut down, Weishaupt was exiled. Weishaupt’s ideology later infiltrated the Freemasons, in Munich and it continued to a point where it was a concern of George Washington. It did in fact never die.

There hasn’t been an Illuminati in 200 years?

Well, it’s been in use as a conspiracy theory ever since it was first founded, mostly by monarchists, right-wingers, and religious Christians looking for explanations as to why things aren’t going their way.

Fact: Clearly not a conspiracy by (Freemason) John Robison, who was unsuccessfully recruited by the Illuminati in 1798. Robison was so disturbed by the nature of the Illuminati in the Freemasons, he was compelled to write a book about it. There are historical records of Illuminati recruiting 20 years after the founder was exiled from Bavaria. It was on the radar of our first President and he feared its contamination of Masonic Lodges in America. If recruitment was in effect 20 years later why is there no evidence it was stamped out?

So who believes in the Illuminati?

Generally speaking, Ron Paul voters, people who are in militias, washed-up rappers, teenage R&B fans on Twitter, and that one guy from high school who is always posting links to Erowid “experiences” to Facebook.

Fact: The author writes this so you will distance yourself from this issue. By associating you with fringe people in our society, you will not feel compelled to research, and learn the truth. People who actually research and study the history of the Illuminati, will clearly see the evidence of the Protocols of Zion.

That’s kind of a broad range of people, isn’t it?

Yeah. Weird, huh?

Fact: Yes, it is weird this writer only associates historical knowledge with fringe people. Sounds like a paid disinfo agent to me. Maybe not? But, probably.

I don’t get it. If it’s this right-wing Christian conspiracy, how do rappers start believing in it?

That’s kind of the million-dollar question. Columbia professor Marc Lamont Hill says that conspiracy theories are a natural response by African-Americans to their disenfranchisement: “There have always been questions and conspiracies about the structure and nature of power by African-Americans, and naturally those questions have made their way into hip-hop,” he told the Philadelphia Weekly in 2010. “[In the 1990s] people were going to black book stores… and buying books like Behold a Pale Horse… They were talking about the Illuminati and the Rothschilds and Bilderbergs.”

Fact: The statement by Marc Lamont Hill is off base on the nature of this issue. To claim Black people are disenfranchised and as a result have a proclivity toward the Illuminati, conspiracy. Black people in America have a distrust of White America because “conspiracies” like injecting 900 share croppers with syphilis just to watch them die and see the effects. Or less than 10 years ago, to be targeted by investment banks like the Royal Bank of Scotland for sub-prime loans and higher interest rates.

Is this not evidence to conspire against a group of people for the color of their skin? Marc Lamont Hill is wrong on this issue; but, that is his opinion. The reason why the Black Community is questioning these Black rappers is they are listening to songs by Jay Z called “666”. Playing it backwards and hearing “Murder, Murder, Jesus”. Furthermore, Jay – Z, being seen in videos saying, “That is why I never read the Bible” and upside down crosses or bullets next to the cross. These so-called theories are being discussed in the Black Churches of American. I guess Marc Lamont Hill does not attend Black Churches? This is another way to divide the people. The Illuminati is against ALL races who do not support the dream.  Now, they are trying to market the Illuminati as a Black Conspiracy theory. Sorry folk, read your White history, therein, lies the problem.


So Alex Jones and Prodigy were reading the same fucked-up conspiracy books?
That’s wild, man.

Dude, Prodigy is going to to vote for Ron Paul.

Fact:Why are you even using them as a litmus test? Prodigy, are you serious? Why not use some the most accredited Black authors? Do you even know who they are?

This is pretty nuts. Can I read more about it somewhere?

Yeah — here’s a good Philadelphia Weekly story about the rap Illuminati phenomenon. Here’s a Slate column about pop music and Illuminati. Here’s an XXL timeline of Illuminati references in rap music. The New Yorker has a really awesome long article about conspiracy theories in America from 1995, but it’s subscriber only. Animal has been tracking the Illuminati for years. And this was my favorite book when I was in high school, though it’s unfortunately out of print. Oh, and dude, you have to read Foucault’s Pendulum. And the Illuminatus! trilogy!

 Fact:  Start with historical archives. Do not trust every writer. Read the book recommended earlier.

Yo, while we’re here, can we talk about reptoids?
