Illuminati News Presents:

Phi Beta Kappa and the Masonic Hierarchy
by Christopher Knowles, The Solar Satellite, Feb 17, 2009

Categories: Freemasonry | The Bavarian Illuminati


Comment by Wes Penre, Illuminati News: I want to bring attention to this information primarily because of the supposed connection between Phi Beta Kappa, Freemasonry and the Bavarian Illuminati.

The reason there is so much speculation about the Bavarian Illuminati is because the real truth hasn't been told anywhere that I can see. In short, the Bavarian Illuminati, whose first Grandmaster was Adam Weishaupt, was just a more recent branch of an old Secret Society, going back thousands of years. A branch of it is still alive and well today. They were the ones who started the Freemasonic Order from the beginning, but the original Freemasons had no desire to take over the world and control the population - quite the contrary. It had a purpose to counter the 'Powers That Be' and put an end to wars and slavery.

However, with time the Freemasonic Order was infiltrated by the very same forces it was fighting against and was eventually taken over. It led to the Freemasonic Order we have today, which is totally corrupted and in the hands of the Power Elite.

So, to make a long story short, the Bavarian Illuminati and the PBK are not connected, and Freemasonry and the Bavarian Illuminati are not connected either anymore. When this has been made clear, this article makes sense and the controversy regarding the Bavarian Illuminati is solved.

Phi Beta Kappa, 1932
Phi Beta Kappa, 1932


ant to see a who's-who list of the most powerful people in American history? Check out the list of members in the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity. Elluminati points out in a recent blog posting that 5 out of the past 6 Presidents are either PBK initiates or sons of one (including Obama).

And yes, PBK is a very high step in the Masonic pyramid, far above the Freemies. From the
Scottish Rite Journal:

(T)he very first fraternity, Phi Beta Kappa, was heavily influenced by the Craft: "A Masonic lodge had existed in Williamsburg as early as in the 1750s, and in 1773 it received a charter from the grand lodge in England…. Thomas Smith belonged to the Williamsburg lodge before joining Heath as one of the five Phi Beta Kappa founders... Nine other members of the society joined the Masonic lodge during the next year."
Indeed, it was the pressure of the Anti-Masonic movement that influenced changes in PBK, such as the end of secrecy and later, the admittance of women.
The anti-Masonic agitation of the 1820s led to much discussion at Dartmouth, Harvard, and Yale of the Phi Beta Kappa oath. In 1831 the Alpha at Harvard, under the leadership of Edward Everett, Joseph Story, and John Quincy Adams, removed the requirement of secrecy.
But anti-Masons simply went from the frying pan to the fire, since the changes in PBK brought about the creation of Skull and Bones:
Phi Beta Kappa dropped its secret society aspect in 1832 and became an "open honorary organization," and "[in] protest, apparently, William H. Russell, valedictorian of 1833, got Alphonso Taft and thirteen other members of '33 to form what is now perhaps the most famous secret society in the United States."
Though disputed, many researchers believe that PBK was simply
the American branch of the Bavarian Illuminati:
Some historians dispute any link between the Bavarian Illuminati and Phi Beta Kappa, and thus Skull and Bones. The argument is that Adam Weishaupt didn't form his group until May of 1776 and that in the ensuing six months there wasn't enough time for communication...

However, other researchers assert quite plainly that Phi Beta Kappa is the "Bavarian Illuminati, ... spread to America"; and "the Masonic Order probably influenced the founding of the Society at William and Mary."
Whether affiliated or not, or secretive or not, these high-level college fraternities are Masonic to the core, though it's very much a kind of Un-Freemasonry. Not just any bozo can join. These organizations exist to groom the most ambitious students to a lifetime of loyalty and service to the fraternity, and in return they enjoy all of the privileges and advantages that the governmental and corporate elite can offer.

A.F. & A.M. may get all of the attention (and the abuse), but it draws its ranks largely from the professions, law enforcement and occupations like engineering. As I've said
several times on The Secret Sun, the real power lies elsewhere.

Write me an email and put the same title in your email subject line as the name of the article you want to comment on. You can be anonymous if you like, or write under a pseudonym. Wes Penre.

Important Definitions:

[i] ^ The word Illuminati means 1. People claiming to be unusually enlightened with regard to a subject. 2. Illuminati: Any of various groups claiming special religious enlightenment.  Latin illmint, from pl. of illmintus, past participle of illminre, to light up. See illuminate.

These definitions are taken from "The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language".

Like the definitions say, any group which considers itself "enlightened" could rightfully call itself the Illuminati. So is also the case. If you google "The Illuminati", you will find quite a few groups claiming this name.

It can be confusing, so before we continue, I want to make very clear that the Illuminati we are discussing here is NOT a benevolent secret society who wants to create peace and harmony in this world by helping to bring freedom to the people. Such a benevolent group DOES exist and happens to call themselves "The Illuminati", and is actually the original group using this name.

They have been working behind the scenes for a very long time to help humanity free themselves from the chains we have been stuck in for thousands of years. Unfortunately, the Powers That Be, the evil puppet masters running this show on war and destruction, infiltrated the truth movement already in an early stage by adopting  the term Illuminati to describe themselves, thus using the same name as the original benevolent group. This to further confuse the matter.

Now, almost all researchers (including myself) have adopted the term "Illuminati" to describe the Dark Side, and by doing so, we have to a certain degree unwittingly helped discrediting the benevolent group with this original name and made it harder for them to get the job done.

Therefore, I will let this definition follow each and every article posted on this website from now on in an effort to try to clear up the confusion. I apologize that so many people now have mixed up the groups, and I have partly, but ignorant to this fact until recently, been responsible for that.

The point is that the Illuminati I am exposing here is the super-rich Power Elite with an ambition to maintain the slave society they have been working so hard to accomplish over the millennia!

[ii] ^ The term "New World Order", just like the term "Illuminati", has been used by at least two different groups, meaning basically two different things:

1) A goal to put an end to the current Order (called "The Old World Order" - OWO), which is considered evil and anti-survival, and therefore the current power elite needs to be overthrown and their Old World Order to be destroyed and replaced with a benevolent "New World Order". The goal is a humanity-friendly One World Government. The means putting an end to the current Old World Order with violence, if necessary.

Personally, I don't agree with using violence to stop the Old World Order, as I am more into a spiritual solution (see elsewhere on my website), but I want to make my readers aware of that there IS a group calling themselves "The Illuminati", who want to replace the current Old World Order (the Rothschilds, Rockefellers etc.) with a benevolent New World Order, where people are no longer slaves to this Power Elite.

2) A goal to create a micro-chipped society, so that they more easily can maintain the current Order that they have created throughout the millennia. This is the "New World Order" the Bush's, the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, Gordon Brown, Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and others are supporting and working on maintaining. This is also the "New World Order" I am fighting against via this website.

Just like in the case with the term "Illuminati", this second group has confused researchers and truth seekers by using the basically benevolent term "New World Order" for their negative and malevolent goals. This has made it harder for the Resistance to operate, because both "The Illuminati" and the "New World Order" have been used as a propaganda for the Dark Side and everything connected to these two terms now are perceived as negative.

If we really look at it, it's nothing "new" with what this Power Elite officially calls the "New World Order", but no more than an effort to hold on to the Old World Order they have already created.

I hope this to some degree makes things clearer.
