The first International Bankers were the Knights Templar, a
secretive society created and sponsored by an even more secret society known as
the Priory De Scion during the time of the Christian Crusades to recapture the
Holy Lands from Muslim control.
The Priory De Scion has had considerable historical influence
in Europe from the time of the Crusades to the present. The reason that
most persons have not heard of the Priory De Scion is that they work secretly
behind the scenes.
Christopher Columbus was a secret member of the Priory De
Scion and on his voyage of discovery to the "New World", his Flag Ship
had the Templar Cross emblem on the Main Sail. This was unusual because
the Templars had been outlawed by that time in history.
A list of the Grand Masters of the Priory De Scion would
include such notables as Leonardo Da Vinci and Sir Isaac Newton. This
secret organization still wields extraordinary secret power in modern
Europe and has exercised a large influence in creating the present European
The Knights Templars were required to take oaths of
poverty and chastity to become members. Their stated mission
was to guard the roads to the Holy Land. Their popularity
became so great that they became a political force with which even kings had to
They created safe depositories where lords could leave
their treasure in safekeeping while on pilgrimages to Jerusalem.
These early form of banks, which were created across Europe and the
Middle East from France to Jerusalem, were the first international banks.
They also developed an early system of checks so that money
could be drawn from a "bank" in Jerusalem by a lord writing a check based on his
treasure being held in a Paris bank.
On Friday the 13th of 1307, the Templars were Outlawed by a
Papal Bull which charged them with Heresy. On this unlucky day all the Knight
Templars in France were simultaneously arrested. Many were
surprised by this unexpected turn of events because the knights Templars were
considered the army of the Catholic Church.
In fact, it took considerable effort on the part of the King
of France, Phillip IV, to influence the Pope to make this declaration. Part of this effort included holding relatives of the Pope hostage to
insure the declaration was made.
Phillip IV had his own motives. He had borrowed heavily
from the Templar Treasury to finance his wars against England. If he could
get the Templars outlawed, not only could the debt be cancelled but the
Templar banks with their treasure could be seized.
The Priory De Scion's intelligence network had advance
knowledge of the King's secret plan to have the knights Templars outlawed and
arrested. They advised the Templars to give up peacefully. They were
told that they would be protected by the Church and found innocent at a later
All the treasure in the Templar banks was removed from France
accompanied by the best Templar Knights on the Templar Fleet which sailed to
Scotland. Later, this treasure and these fighting knights were allied with
Scotland's Fight for independence from England.
While Jacques de Molay , the Templar leader of France,
was imprisoned, he secretly directed the establishment of Occult or Hermetic
Masonry, establishing four Lodges; one in Naples, one at Edinburg, one at
Stockholm, and one at Paris.
The Templars which were arrested were not protected by the
Church as expected. Many were horribly tortured to extract confessions of
guilt. Their leader, Jacous De Molay was burned at the stake
in a public square of Paris.
Just before his death, De Molay placed a curse on
the King of France and the Pope stating that he would see them before the throne
of God before a year passes. Perhaps due to the secret influence of the
Priory De Scion, The Pope and King perished within the year in a strange and
sudden manner. Squin de Florin, the chief denouncer of the Templars was
Outlawing of the Knights Templars drove them underground as
the secret order of the Free Masons through-out Europe. The Freemasons
became the arch enemies of the Catholic Church, because of the percieved
betrayal of the Templars by the Church, and worked behind the scenes to
promote the later Protestant Reformation, and more freedom for
The Vatican's militant order of the Jesuits was sent to
England to fight the heresy of Protestantism. Jesuits diligently searched for
heretics to punish, thus guaranteeing that Freemasons would keep their secrets
well hidden if they wished to keep their heads.
John Locke, used the Masonic Charges in writing the constitution for the
proposed colony of South Carolina, which was to later become a bastion for
Freemasonry. Also, the writings of Sir Francis Bacon demonstrated the
philosophies of the Freemasons. The founders of the Virginia Company were also
Later the Masons would make their presence felt in the New World with
the Boston Tea Party, organized by the Boston Freemason lodge and the
Declaration of Independence. The latter document was composed and signed
primarily by Freemasons. George Washington and most of his Generals were also
Freemasons. In truth, without the Freemasons there would have been no United
States of America!
The Money Lenders of Amsterdam
The next significant impact on history was made by the Jewish
money lenders of Amsterdam. These money lenders had
considerable influence in the "behind the scenes" politics. The Jewish
Rabbi who were the religious and political leaders of the scattered Jewish
people and the Jewish money lenders combined their forces in a group
known as the "Elders of Zion."
From 1640 to 1689, These "Elders of Zion" in Holland plotted the English
Revolution, and were lending money to the various factions.
These Jewish money lenders used their influence to elevate Mr. William
Stradholder to Captain General of the Dutch Forces and then to
William, Prince of Orange. Then, they arranged the meeting of William
Stradholder with the English Duke of York's eldest daughter,
The Duke of York was next in line to be the King of England. In
1677, Prince William of Orange married princess Mary of York. When the Duke of York suddenly died, Prince William of Orange
and Mary became the next King and Queen of England in 1689.
Then, King William persuaded the British Treasury to borrow
one and a quarter million british pounds from the Dutch bankers who had placed
him in power. The terms of the loan were as follows:
1. The names of
the lenders be kept secret and that they be granted a charter to establish a bank of England.
2. The directors of said bank be granted the legal right to establish
the gold standard for paper currency.
3. That they be allowed to lend out 10 pounds of paper
currency for every 1 pound of gold held on deposit.
4. That they be allowed to consolidate the national debt and secure
amounts due as principal and interest by a direct taxation
of the people.
This form of "fractional banking" would allow 50% yearly return on
actual bank assets at an interest rate of 5% per year. And the people of England
would pay the bill! A similar banking scheme would later appear in the United
States with the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.
These lenders never intended that the loans be repaid for they profited
mainly from the interest and the indebtedness gave them political leverage.
England's national debt went from 1,250,000 Pounds in 1694 to 16,000,000 Pounds
Mystery often surrounds that secretive center of international banking,
the house of Rothschild. In 1750, Mayer Amschel Bauer purchased his fathers
banking business in Frankfurt and changed his name to Rothschild. Mayer became
married and had five sons and five daughters. His sons names were
Amschel, Salamon, Nathan, Kalmann, and Jacob.
His fortunes increased when he came into the good graces of
the Prince William IX of Hess-Hanau, whom he was known to have attended
Freemason meetings in Germany with.
This prince derived a large income from renting his Hessian mercenary
army out to the King of England. These same troops would later combat George
Washington's revolutionary army at Valley Forge.
Rothschild became Prince William's trusted banker. When Prince William
had to flee to Denmark because of political upheaval in Germany, he left six
hundred pounds, the mercenary army's payroll, in Rothschild's bank for
The money was then sent to London with Nathan Rothschild to start a bank
there. Gold was brought from the East India Company for use as security.
Fourfold profits were made on paper money loans to finance the Duke of
Wellington's military operations, and later, on the sale of the gold which was
supposed to be the security for the paper money.
This was the beginning of the great fortune of the House of Rothschild.
An international banking operation was started by setting each son with a bank
in different countries; Amschel in Berlin, Salamon in Vienna, Jacob in Paris and
Kalamann in Naples. Salamon Rothschild was a member of the Freemasons.
Meyer Rothschild made a will which outlined how the family
fortune was to be managed. The males would manage the fortune, the eldest son
would have the deciding vote when disagreements would arise and all accounting
and other records would be kept strictly secret not even open to governments.
In 1773, Meyer Rothschild held a secret meeting in The House of
Rothschild at Jundestrasse, Frankfurt Germany, with twelve wealthy and
influential European Financiers to discuss a manual of action to gain eventual
control of the entire wealth of the world.
At this meeting, the English Revolution and the means of gaining control
of England's wealth was discussed and the formal outline which would eventually
be known as the 24 "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" were outlined. These
protocols had their roots in the Sanhedren during the Babylonian captivity
of Israel and were develop as a means to covertly destabilise enemy
These Protocols were kept quite secret, but in 1901 these documents fell
into the hands of Russian Professor S. Nilus. He had them published in Russian
under the title "The Jewish Peril." Victor Marsden then had them translated into
english under the title "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" in 1921.
These may have changed somewhat since the original meeting in 1773.
The First Protocol stressed the importance of gaining control of money
in order to gain control of a nation:
"...Whether a State exhausts itself in it's own convulsions, whether
it's internal discord brings it under the power of external foes, in any case it
can be accounted irretrievably lost: It is in our power. The despotism of
Capital, which is entirely in our hands, reaches out to it a straw that the
State, willy nilly must take hold of, if not it goes to the bottom..."
The second Protocol stressed the need to control the press:
"...In the hands of the States of today there is a great force
that creates the movement of thought in the people, and that is the
The third Protocol shows the means of increasing their power:
"...We appear on the scene as the alleged saviours of the worker from
this oppression when we propose to him to enter the ranks of our fighting forces
Socialists, Anarchists, Communists To whom we always give support in accordance
with an alleged brotherly rule (of the solidarity of all humanity) of our social
The fourth protocol states the need to lesson the peoples faith in God:
"...It is indispensable for us to undermine all faith, to tear out of
the minds of the Goyim (Gentile) the very principle of Godhead and the spirit,
and to put in its place arithmetical calculations and material need..."
The fifth protocol states the need to create confusion:
"...In order to put public opinion into our hands we must bring it into
a state of bewilderment by giving expression from all sides so many
contradictory opinions and for such length of time as will suffice to make the
Goyim loose their head in the labyrinth and come to see that the best thing is
to have no opinion of any kind in matters political..."
The sixth protocol states the need to create the desire for luxury in
the common man:
"...To complete the ruin of the industry of the Goyim ...we have
developed among the Goyim the greedy demand for luxury that is swallowing up
everything...We shall raise the state of wages, which however, will not bring
any advantage to the worker, for at the same time, we shall produce a rise in
prices...In order that the true meaning of things will not strike the
Goyim before the proper time, we shall mask it under an alleged ardent desire to
serve the working classes and the great principles of political economy about
which our economic theories are carrying on an energetic propaganda."
The seventh protocol states the means to gain control of existing
"The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces are all
essential for the completion of the aforementioned plans. What we have to get at
is that there shall be in all the States of the world, besides ourselves,
only the masses of the proletariat, a few millionaires devoted to our interests,
police and soldiers..."
The eight protocol shows the means of training and controlling national
"... Our directorate must surround itself with all those forces of
civilization among which it will have to work. It will surround itself with
publicists, practical jurists, public administrators, diplomats, and finally
with persons prepared by a special superŠeducational training in our special
schools...For a time until thee no longer be any risk in entrusting responsible
posts in our States to brother Jews, we shall put them in the hands of persons
whose past and reputation are such that between them and the people there lays
an abyss, persons who in case of disobedience to our instructions, must face
criminal charges or disappear. This in order to make them defend our
interests to their last gasp."
The ninth protocol shows the means of using human weakness to create the
international super government:
"...And the weapons in our hands are limitless ambitions, burning
greediness, merciless vengeance, hatreds and malice. It is from us that the all
engulfing terror proceeds. We have in our services persons of all opinions, of
all doctrines, restorating monarchists, demagogues, socialists, communists, and
utopian dreamers of every kind. We have harnessed them all to the task: Each one
of them on his own account is boring away at the last remnants of authority, is
striving to overthrow all established forms of order. By these acts all states
are in torture; they exhort to tranquility, are ready to sacrifice anything for
peace: But we will not give them peace until they openly acknowledge our
international Super Government, and with submissiveness."
There are 24 of these protocols and these are but short excerpts from
some given to convey the spirit of their method for overthrowing the nations of
the world. A complete reading of the Protocols would reveal why the present
world is in the present confused mess.
After outlining the plan for world domination, the Banking house of
Rothschild commissioned Adam Wieshaupt to form the secret Order of
Adam Wieshaupt was raised in a Jesuit convent and eventually became a
professor of Canon law. Later, as he became disillusioned with Catholicism, he
became the personal student of the Jewish philosopher Mendelssohn, and was
converted to Gnosticism.
Illuminism certainly existed before Adam Wieshaupt made his appearance
in the world. The inner circle of initiates of the Rosecrucians order were
considered "illumined". This term was in reference to the auric light that
surrounded one who was truly bathed in the light of the spirit.
This was considered a very real phenomenon in Europe before the
infection of cartesian logic which denied the existence of spirit. For example,
certain contemporaries were said to have witnessed the glowing aura of Saint
Francis De Assisi. Enlightenment had been considered a worthy quest since the
times of Hermes.
However, it was Adam Wieshaupt who formed the secret order of Illuminati
which has proven to be a tremendous deception. Here Novitiates were told that
the Illuminati held the secrets to many great mysteries which they could
gradually be initiated into as they progressed through the degrees and were
proven worthy. This "secret knowledge" proved to be an enticing lure to many
The stated purpose of the Illuminati was to eliminate all the evil
conditions of society and return man to his natural happy state. Since this
meant tearing down the powerful Monarchy and the Church, dangerous enemies would
be created. So, secrecy was an important feature of the Order.
The Illuminati was organized as circles within circles, with certain
levels of secrecy maintained on the inner circles. Only those in the innermost
circles knew the true goals of the Illuminati. Members in the lower degrees were
told that they were no higher degrees and their Grandmaster's identity was kept
Deception is the secret of this organization's success and truth it's
greatest enemy. The Organization has a global reach today. The outward
manifestation of the Illuminati is the "New World Order." However, the men truly
at the "levers of control" are safely hidden from the public eye.
This fantastic deception was conceived while Wieshaupt was employed as a
professor of Cannon law at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria. The Illuminati was formally founded by Wieshaupt on May 1, 1776.
Ironically, this secret order was being formed at the same time as the
greatest document to insure human freedom, the United States Constitution. The
two have been at cross purposes ever since.
The creation of the United States was largely the work of the true
Freemason Lodges. The organizers of the American Revolution and
signers of the U.S. constitution, were primarily members of freemason lodges.
While on the other hand, the disastrous French and Russian Revolutions with their following reigns of terror and worsening of the
human condition, were largely the work of the "Illuminised" Freemason Lodges of continental Europe which were named "Grand Orient Lodges."
Part of the ingenious organization of the Illuiminati likely stemmed
from Wieshaupt's early training in a Jesuit order. It must be remembered that
the Jesuits were considered the "Vatican's secret service" in the continual war
of Protestant suppression. It was a militant religious order that had a long
history of murder and intrigue, notable examples being the massacre of the
Huguenots in France and the "Gun Powder Plot" in England.
The system of secrecy of the Illuminati was quite simple: The leader
worked directly with two men under him. Each of these two men again worked with
two men and so on. The lower men in this hierarchy knew their immediate superior
but not their superior's superior. Through this chain of command tremendous
influence could be wielded without public awareness of the true source of this
To further increase the efficiency of this secret order, many of the
most promising were initiated. These often were persons of wealthy families,
magistrates or the higher degrees of the Freemason Lodges. The initiated were
Also, a system of spying was developed. "Every person shall be made a
spy on another and on all around him... he shall attempt to discover their
strong side and their weak, their passions, their prejudices, their connections,
and above all, their actions." Adepts, called Insinuants or "Insinuating
Brothers", were required to file reports twice a month to their superiors, "So
that the Order may know which are the people in each town and village that they
can look to for support."
Other purposes were served by this system of spying. Personnel files
could established on each Patriarch which would accurately determine his
personality profile. Then, each could be placed in positions where their
talents would be of the greatest service to the Order. The more notable
indiscretions committed by a Patriarch were also recorded for possible blackmail
purposes should the need arise. And, any secret subversion from within the
Illuminati Order could be quickly detected and dealt with.
On July 16, 1782, at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad, an alliance between
Freemasonry and the Illuminati was sealed. This pact united about 3 million
members of the leading secret societies of that time.
One order of business at the congress was to allow Jews to become
members. This was at a time when Jews had few rights and were still being sorely
prosecuted in Europe.
All that passed at this meeting will perhaps never be known since all
attending were sworn to complete secrecy. Comte de Virieu, one Freemason present
at the Congress, was asked what secrets had transpired.
He replied, "I will not confide them to you. I can only tell you that
all this is very much more serious than you think. The conspiracy which has been
woven is so well thought out that it will be, so to speak, impossible for the
Monarchy and the Church to escape from it."
Some subversive secrets started to leak from the Illuminati and by
October 11, 1785 the Bavarian Elector ordered a raid on the home of Wieshaupt's
chief assistant, Herr Von Zwack. Many documents were recovered during this raid
which outlined the Illuminati's plan for world wide revolution. The Bavarian
Elector Decided to have the papers published as "Original Writings of the Order
and Sect of the Illuminati". These papers were circulated as widely as possible
as a warning to the European Monarchies.
Wieshaupt was dismissed from his position as professor and went into
hiding with another Illuminati member, the Duke of Saxe Gotha. While
allowing the lie that the Illuminati had been dissolved to be believed,
the secret Order continued it's work in secrecy under organizations with other
Within a year, The "German Union" surfaced, passing Illuminati
propaganda on to the many Reading Societies then in existence. Here the slogan
"Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" was born. The Monarchs of Europe were heedless
of the danger and soon the French Revolution and the "Reign of Terror" were to
The secret history of the Illuminati claims that Wieshaupt foresaw the
French Revolution and wanted to push it on to even greater ends. He is said to
be the founder of the first Communist International. Furthermore, the house of
Rothschild was the treasurer of the first Comintern. As we shall see, the
unlikely alliance between capitalist and communist is a standard modus operandi
of the Illuminati.
In 1830, Wieshaupt died at the age of 82. In 1834, Guiessepe Mazzini was
appointed as director of the Illuminati. He held this position until his death
in 1872. One branch of the Illuminati at that time, known as "The League of the
Just" hired Moses Mordecai Marx Levi (alias Karl Marx) to write for them.
While Giuseppe Mazzini was the head of the Illuminati in Europe, he
corresponded with Albert Pike, the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and
Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction U.S.A.
A letter dated August 15, 1871, Pike gives Mazzini a detailed plan for
world conquest in three world wars: The first war would destroy Czarist Russia
and place that vast territory under the control of the Illuminati. The second
war would be manipulated by the differences between the Political Zionists and
the German Nationalists. This would lead to the expansion of Russian power and
the creation of a state of Israel in Palestine. The third war would stir up the
differences between the State of Israel and the Arab Muslims.
