The Illuminati’s First Coup d’Etat
Adam Weishaupt also worked intensively as a member of the Masonic order Grand Orient to prepare a so-called revolution. (Nesta Webster, “The French Revolution”, London, 1919, pp. 20-21.)
At the same time, the Illuminati had gained a secure footing in France. A Portuguese Jew, Martinez Paschalis, had formed Illuminati groups all over the country up to 1787.
Count Honore Gabriel Riqueti de Mirabeau (alias Leonidas) became the most important Illuminati leader. Another important Illuminatus, the writer and publisher Johann Joachim Christoph Bode (1730-1793), alias Amelius, had traveled to Paris in the same year to organize the French revolution and to give the go-ahead signal for the rebellion two years later, according to Johannes Rogalla von Bieberstein’s book “Die These von der Verschworung 1776-1945” (Frankfurt am Main, 1978).
As an Illuminatus, Bode had been successful in making contacts with other freemasons, also in Sweden. He published the first Masonic periodical during the years 1116-1119. He also took part in the Masonic convention in Wilhelmsbad in 1782.
Weishaupt had earlier sent the Jew Giuseppe Balsamo (born 8th June 1743 in Palermo), who presented himself under the false title of Count Alessandro Cagliostro, to France so that the Illuminati would control the French Masonic orders. Cagliostro-Balsamo had been recruited in Frankfurt am Main in 1781. (“The Trail of the Serpent”, Hawthorne, California, 1936, p. 163.)
One year earlier he had declared himself leader of the Egyptian freemasonry. Cagliostro also took part in the important Masonic congress in Paris on the 15th February 1785.
Cagliostro was expelled from France in 1786 in connection with the “necklace affair”. He was jailed in Rome in 1789, after attempting to set up a Masonic lodge and was sentenced to life imprisonment. He died on the 26th August 1795.
Rothschild’s most important lackey, Weishaupt, was also sent to Paris with unlimited funds to bribe capable men, organize a revolt and depose the king. A secret committee was set up at the Masonic convention in February 1785 to co-ordinate the actions of the revolution.
- Franz Anton Mesmer
- Charles Maurice de Talleyrand (actually T. Perigord)
- Baron de Gleichen
- Count Louis de Hesse
- and representatives of the Grand Orient from Poland and LithuaniaWeishaupt always played a leading role at the Illuminati’s meetings in Paris. He invited thousands of murderers to Paris. According to Nesta Webster, Danton and Mirabeau were originally members of the Masonic lodge Les Amis Reunis (The Reunited Friends), upon which the Illuminati also put their mark. Louis Leon Saint-Just, called one of the fathers of totalitarianism, was also a freemason. The Illuminati took over the Jacobin clubs already in 1789. 152 of these clubs were active on the 10th August 1790, according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica. The Jacobins had a centralized network over all France. The first club was taken over by Weishaupt’s close collaborators Bode and Baron de Busche. The Jacobin funds amounted to 30 million livres in 1791. Honest researchers have pointed out that the history of the Jacobins is in fact a part of the history of the Illuminati. We must not forget that one of Weishaupt’s titles was “Patriarch of the Jacobins”. The Jacobins also wore red caps, which they called “caps of liberty” or Jacobin caps. According to the still current propaganda, Louis XVI was a merciless and stupid tyrant. In actual fact, he was a kind, well-meaning person, a warmly religious family man and, besides, extremely clever and well-read, according to the French historian Eric Le Nabour’s biography of the king, “Le pouvoir et la fatalite” (“Power and Destiny”). He often read his encyclopaedias. Louis was so near-sighted that he had difficulty recognizing people only a few yards away. He was a good locksmith and had a knowledge of mechanics, which surprised contemporary experts. He liked carpentry and woodwork. The king had no interest in the glamorous aspects of court life. Louis was 16 when he married the 14-year-old Marie Antoinette. He never traveled abroad. The Illuminati have managed to present as negative a picture of Louis XVI and his France as possible to the post-revolutionary world. It was not the extravagance and wasteful spending of the court that caused the enormous state deficit, but rather France’s support of the American Revolution. The costs of the war against England became astronomical. Louis XVI was the first head of state of the Old World to recognize this new republic. Gustavus III was the second. A presage of the catastrophe to come occurred almost exactly a year earlier, on the morning of the 13th July 1788, when a great storm swept across the country. In a few minutes, the temperature dropped 13 degrees, the sun was hidden and hailstones the size of a baby’s head swept over the richest farming country in the land – 900 000 hectares were affected, trees were uprooted, vineyards destroyed and harvests spoiled. Over a thousand villages suffered. Roofs blew off and church steeples were brought down. It was not long before the superstitious were proved right – it was a terrible sign of calamity and violent, sudden death. Neither was it a good sign that the price of bread began to rise day by day, hordes of beggars moved along the roads and over 100 000 destitute people found their way to Paris. This is why the populace could be incited to revolt. The riots went on throughout the winter. On the 1st of March 1789, the 19-year-old lieutenant Napoleon Bonaparte was sent to Dijon to crush a riot but he refused to take the king’s side. He chose to go over to the revolutionaries. Dark Illuminati forces fomented the riots in the French countryside. The debts owed on the state deficit consumed half of the French budget. All this money found its way into the hands of profiteering Jewish moneylenders. All of these factors were exploited. The time to strike had come for the conspirators, who had united the Jacobin clubs. At the beginning of the revolution, there were 282 Masonic lodges in France, of which 266 were controlled by the Illuminati, according to Nesta Webster (“World Revolution”, London, 1921, p. 28). It was these same groups which organised all the riots and troubles. Not a single political prisoner was found in the Bastille. There were only seven people incarcerated there. Four of these were infamous frauds and forgers. The young Comte des Solages had been imprisoned at his father’s bidding since he had committed serious offences (incest). Two of the Bastille inmates were mentally ill; one of these was an Irishman with a three foot long beard who claimed to be God himself. Actually, the prisoners had had it fairly easy. They had their own furniture and were allowed to wear their normal clothes. They were also served several courses for dinner. The dungeons had been used to store wine. The warders had been decent, and visits from friends and relatives had frequently been allowed. The library was of a high standard. The daily walks in the little garden of the Bastille had been pleasant. The freemasons, headed by Camille Desmoulins, agitated the people more and more intensively with shouts of “Down with the Bastille!” The tumult cost 83 attackers their lives. Another 73 were injured, of which 15 later died of their injuries (Svenska Dagbladet, 25th June 1989). Earlier, the liberal governor had even invited the freemasons’ messenger to dinner! He was tortured and killed by the crowd. His head was cut off and carried in triumph on a pole through Paris. Afterwards, three officers were murdered and two invalids were hanged. The “revolutionaries” waved their red flags. Behind the idea of the “Day of Terror” was the freemason Adrien Du-pont, who wanted to exploit the people as much as he could for “revolutionary” reasons, according to Nesta Webster (“World Revolution”, London, 1921, pp. 31-32). To speed up their own seizure of power, the freemasons checked any attempted reforms. The Illuminist coup in France brought none of the improvements that corrupt historians try to make us believe in; instead it resulted in an orgy of violence and intrigue. Among the victims of this bloodbath was a friend of the queen, Princess de Lamballe, who was attacked in the street and hacked to pieces. Every aristocrat was automatically guilty, but only those who threatened the Jacobins’ position perished. The Jacobins had begun to shut Philippe Egalite explained why he left the Grand Orient in the following manner: The Illuminati could not forgive this and exacted their revenge upon him, despite the fact that his vote had been decisive in the process of deposing the king. In 1903, Lenin proclaimed: This was just the beginning. After the “revolution” came the wars.The Jacobins explained in their inflammatory speeches how “a war would be a blessing for the nation. The worst thing that could happen to us now would be if we did not get a war”. On the 20th of April 1792, France declared war on Austria. After that, Belgium, Holland and parts of Germany were invaded. All those wars claimed two million lives. All of France’s 27 million inhabitants were made to suffer from this madness. With the help of French “revolutionary” troops, the Republic or Commune of Mainz, Germany, was proclaimed on the 18th of March, 1793. The 18th of March had a special significance for the Illuminist conspirators. On the same day in 1314, the Jewish Grand Master of the Knights Templar, Jacques de Molay, was burned at the stake. Because of this, some of the more important Illuminati actions were planned for just this day, as a kind of revenge for his execution. Revolts were organized to break out on the 18th of March, 1848, in several European countries. A coup was staged in Paris on this day (1871) after which the Illuminati proclaimed the Paris Commune. Thanks to the efforts of the Prussian army, the snake-pit in Mainz was liquidated only four months later – on the 23rd of July 1793. Goethe accompanied the Prussian army as early as 1792 in its campaign against the “lawless Frenchmen”. (Dagens Nyheter, 4th of February 1989.) Jewish “revolutionaries” immediately saw to it that the Jews received full citizenship and so that they had their hands free to act. Maximilien Marie Isidore Robespierre (1758-1794) published a work entitled “To Protect the Political Rights of the Jews” as early as in 1789. Protection of Jewish rights was obviously considered the main priority. Louis Joseph Marchand, friend of Napoleon Bonaparte, wrote in 1895 that Robespierre was actually a Jew by the name of Ruban from Alsace (“In Napoleon’s Shadow,” San Francisco, 1998). However, the Buddhist work Dhammapada (11-12) says of this:Illuminist Jews saw to it that everything that was good about France was destroyed during the “revolution”. What was good disappeared at the same rate that the evil grew. The road network was allowed to fall into disrepair, overseas trade ceased almost entirely and it took until 1809 for the industrial production to reach its pre-Revolutionary levels again, according to the historian Rene Sedillot (“Le cout de la Revolution francaise” / “The Cost of the French Revolution”). At the same time, the “revolutionaries” began to plunder castles of their art treasures. The Jewish writer Anatole France described in his book “The Thirsty Gods” how inspectors with tricolor ribbons around their collars began to turn up at the homes of the wealthy to search for riches. Delighted foreign art dealers bought sculptures and fragments of frescoes. Load after load of confiscated art collections were shipped over the English Channel. The “revolution” was lucrative for the Illuminati and the speculators. All of this was repeated during and after the so-called Russian revolution. The mighty finance dynasty of the Rothschilds was born out of the French “revolution”. The Rothschilds are still in control behind the scenes today, especially within the European Union. The real losers in the “revolution” were the Illuminati’s tools – the simple people. The land rights of the small peasants were taken away. The church charities ceased abruptly and any attempt at improving the conditions for loan-takers was regarded as a conspiracy against the state. The ranks of derelicts swelled. During Napoleon’s days one in five Parisians lived by begging. The theatres were given free rein at the beginning, but later the actors began to be punished for undesirable productions. The Academy of Art was closed and anyone who wanted could call himself an artist. Anyone was allowed to be a doctor and to mix medicines, which had a very negative effect on the state of general health in France – but then, maybe this was the intention? The young Hungarian philosopher Ferenc Feher, Lukacs’s disciple, living in New York, claimed in 1989 that Louis XVI was judged on political, not judicial, grounds. Because of this, he ascertained that it was terrorism, not democracy that was introduced. Feher believed that what was built up after the French revolution was simply unfounded lawlessness. (Expressen, 21st of August 1989.) The playwright Eugene Ionesco observed in 1990 that this revolution was a big mistake, which led to the spread of the most terrible false doctrine in history.The Illuminati wanted to completely politicize society. This was the job of the “insinuating brothers” under the name of the “Committee of National Security ” with its chief Chauvelin. At the same time, society was being undermined through the secret lodges, which began to prepare a dictatorship and a world revolution, which was intended to utterly overthrow the social order. This world revolution was designed to be accomplished by a handful of Illuminist conductors. (Svenska Dagbladet, 16th August 1989.) The homosexual Robespierre was publicly regarded as a tyrant or dictator. The peasants in the Vendee province had had enough of all this “revolutionary” stupidity: their king had been murdered, schooling had been abolished, their oldest sons had all been enrolled into the army. On the 10th of March 1793, they rebelled. At the beginning they were quite successful but when the Jacobins realized that the populace was beginning to threaten their position, they imposed their dictatorship, which began on the 31st of May 1793, and lasted until March 1794. The terrorism during that period was the worst yet seen. Virtually rampaging marauders murdered everyone in the province of Vendee. Only 12 000 people in the whole province survived the assaults. One general reported to Paris: “Vendee has ceased to exist.” Another wrote that his band of army raiders daily managed to kill 2000 people. A new rebellion went on during the years 1794-95. In total, 600000 lives were extinguished in the Vendee province. The famous French historian Urbain Gohier revealed in his book “The Old France” (1922) how a certain speech, which Robespierre held for two hours at the convention on the 26th of July 1794, had meant his end. He condemned all the eager foreign agents who tried to direct the development of commerce in France too intensively and demanded that those agents be rendered harmless. On the following day he was arrested together with his brother, Saint-Just and Georges Gouthon. All of them were executed without trial on the 28th of July. This speech has been left out of the official version of events. Officially, the “revolutionaries” justified their craving for power as “moral”, but the people were forced to be “virtuous” and to change their minds.What have Jewish ideologues said about this “revolution” in France? Archives Israelites admitted very ambiguously on the 6th of June 1889: “The French Revolution has a very expressive Hebraic character.” The aim of this new politics, pursued for the people’s (the Illuminati’s) own best, was indubitably totalitarian (Svenska Dagbladet, 14th March 1989). Later, the question arose whether this conspiracy to overthrow the church and the state had begun somewhere in Germany (Svenska Dag-bladet, 16th august 1989). Other states now sought to defend themselves against Illuminism. The Turks dismissed suggestions from Russia to take a joint action against France.
- In 1818 the freemasons put one of their agents from France on the Swedish throne – Jean Baptiste Bernadotte.
- Gustavus III was also prepared to send 16 000 Swedish soldiers to help forge a European alliance to crush the French Revolution. He banned the Marseillaise in Sweden. Because of this, the earlier decision to murder the king was carried out. On the 16th of March 1792, Gustavus III was fatally wounded at a masked ball by the freemason Jakob Johan Anckarstrom. The king had been warned about possible assassination attempts but had not taken these warnings seriously. A bust of Anckarstrom stands in the lodge chamber of the Grand Orient in Paris.
- These experiences were exploited later in Russia when the Illuminati, who called themselves Bolsheviks, paid homage to the men responsible for this revolutionary terrorism: a statue of Robespierre (Ruban), whose family had immigrated to France from Ireland, was erected and a massive armoured cruiser (as well as several factories) were given the name Marat (actually Mosessohn).
- This awful end also awaited Robespierre. On the 27th of July 1794, the leader of the Jacobins was arrested together with other leading Communards (his brother Augustin, Saint-Just and Georges Gouthon) and was guillotined without trial. The reign of terror was over. The directors dissolved the Paris Commune on the 26th of October 1795. 54
- In their struggle for power, some “revolutionaries” even happened to execute each other. Some leaders, above all those who wanted to limit the extent of the terrorism, were done away with (Georges Danton, Camille Desmoulins and other Dantonites went to the guillotine on the 5th of April 1794 as “enemies of the people”).
- The new rulers demanded that the populace address all as “citizens”. The year was to begin upon a new day, the months were renamed, and the week became a 10-day period. An hour consisted of 100 minutes. All these idiocies were abolished by Napoleon in 1806.
- The 21st of January 1793, the Jewish chief executioner and freemason, Samson, and Samson’s son Henry executed Louis XVI. Samson said: “Louis, son of the holy one, rise up to heaven!” The execution of the king was celebrated every year until Napoleon’s coup in Bruimare (November) 1799. (Dagens Nyheter, 25th January 1989.) Even the word “roi” (king) was abolished. Marie Antoinette was executed on the 16th of October (Yahweh’s Doomsday) in 1793.
- The myth maintains that this was done to throw off the yoke of tyranny and to protect human rights. In actual fact, the Illuministic reign of terror abolished human rights altogether. It became forbidden for workers to organize and strike for better conditions. This prohibition was legislated on the 14th of June 1791. (Etienne Martin-Saint-Leon, “Les deux C.G.T., syndicalisme et communisme”, Paris, 1923, p. 7.)
- The government reached a deficit that made the pre-Revolutionary debts seem quite modest in comparison. The debt equaled 800 tons of gold, or 40 per cent of the total gold production of the world during the entire 18th century.
- The steeple on the Notre-Dame of Paris was considered offensively tall and was torn down.
- Many villages were razed to the ground, churches and castles were destroyed on purpose. The cultural heritage was ravaged, including medieval buildings. The largest Romanesque architectural structure, the 10th century abbey in Cluny, was destroyed. Only one tower remains today. Those barbarians even began to tear down the Papal Palace in Avignon.
- Those who take the non-real for the real and the real for the non-real and thus fall victims to erroneous notions never reach the essence of reality. Having realised the essential as the essential and the non-essential as the non-essential, they by thus following correct thinking attain the essential.
- The slogan which best summed up the Jacobins’ aims was: “All power to the bourgeoisie!” (the Illuminati). And the power certainly became centralized in France, according to Leo Gershoy, “The Era of the French Revolution 1789-1799” (New York, 1957, p. 41). Everything that was non-essential was suddenly presented as essential.
- On the 17th of January 1795, a revolutionary “sister-state” was founded in the Netherlands – the republic of Batavia, where Amsterdam became the capital. Napoleon oversaw the conversion of this state into the kingdom of Holland in 1806
- “A Russian social democrat must be a Jacobin.”
- In other words, those killed were quite ordinary people. In Paris alone, 30 people were executed every day. The Jacobin executioners usually preferred blonde victims.
- This was revealed just before the 200th anniversary of the revolution. This information is based on the protocols of the revolutionary tribunals, which include the names of all those executed. Nine per cent of the decapitated “enemies of the people” were nobles, 28 per cent peasants and 30 per cent workers. The rest were servants. (Dagens Nyheter, 1st July 1989.)
- Saint-Just promised in the name of the republic to eliminate all adversaries. The Jacobins’ (Illuminati’s) terrorism claimed 300 000 human lives, according to Nesta Webster (“World Revolution”, London, 1921, p. 47). The historian Rene Sedillot, in his book “The Cost of the French Revolution”, calculates that the “revolution”, on account of the terrorism and the civil war, claimed at least 600 000 victims. Charlotte Corday murdered the powerful and bloodthirsty freemason Marat on the 13th of July 1793. Less than one in ten of those guillotined were aristocrats.
- Nothing was said about guilty peasants and workers but it was mainly they who suffered from the “revolutionary” punishments. Marat wanted 100 000 people guillotined to scare the enemies of the “revolution”.
- “… I no longer know who belongs to the Grand Orient. Therefore, I believe that the Republic should no longer allow any secret societies. I no longer want to have anything to do with the Grand Orient and Masonic meetings.”
- He knew too much about the preparations for the revolution. He had worked with the Jacobins in the hope that he might be allowed to take the throne as a constitutional monarch.
- 49 the Masonic lodges – they had played their part. In 1794 there were only 12 lodges left, those most useful to the Illuminati. The king’s cousin, the Duke of Orleans, who had begun to call himself Philippe Egalite (equality) was also guillotined despite having renounced his title and in 1792 leaving his position as Grand Master of the Grand Orient which he had held for 20 years since the founding of the Order.
- Danton himself became incredibly rich. Earlier, he had taken large bribes from those wishing to save their lives. In the beginning of September 1792, Danton encouraged the mobs to massacre the “enemies of the people”. In Paris alone, 2800 people were murdered between the 2nd and 4th of September, according to the historian Nesta Webster.
- The leaders of the Jacobins and especially of the Enraged (Les Enrages) wanted to destroy all who had shown any misgivings about the “revolution”. Georges Jacques Danton, infamous as a rogue, became minister of justice. He wanted every suspect imprisoned. Many priests and relatives of emigrants were also incarcerated. In this way the leaders of the revolution gained access to enormous assets.
- The real reign of terror, however, began on the 10th of August 1792, which was a Yahweh day, when the monarchy was abolished and the Paris commune was established. The commune leadership included 288 Illuminati headed by Chaumette, Danton and Robespierre.
- To make the killing more efficient, the “revolutionaries” began using the guillotine in April 1792. The idea originally came from Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, a professor in anatomy. The doctor and freemason Antoine Louis constructed the killing machine. The record of Henri Samson, the chief executioner, was 21 heads in 38 minutes.
- Their “crime”: they had sewn shirts for the army. People were executed without trial, despite the ostensible introduction of so-called revolutionary tribunals in September 1789. One of the judges presiding at these tribunals was the perverted Marquis Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade, who had been brought straight from a mental hospital. De Sade was responsible for giving the concept “sadism” a name. He also died in a mental hospital.
- The National Assembly was moved into an old manège on the Rue de Rivoli in October 1789. The radicals sat to the left of the chairman, the conservatives to the right. Hence the Illuminati created left and right as ideological concepts in world politics. Everything that had to do with the left was thereafter considered progressive since it was true Illuminism. The murders began under Rothschild’s red banner and the Illuminist slogans: “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!” and “Freedom or Death!” In Lyon the “enemies of the people” were shot down with cannons, in Nantes, following the slaughter of 500 children, 144 seamstresses were drowned in old barges on the Loire River.
- They also lied about an impending attack by the Germans and the English. Within 36 hours these evil rumors had reached the great masses around the country and created an enormous panic on the 22nd of July. The leaflets appeared to be official declarations. They would read: “By order of his Majesty, the burning of all castles and the hanging of anyone who opposes this is allowed from the 1st August until the 1st November.” People were taken in by these lies. The peasants took up arms. They attacked and plundered manors and castles. They burned terriers and other documents and thereby also burned their own history.
- Afterwards, agents of the freemasons were sent out across the country. Their main task was to foster panic simultaneously in most of the provinces. During this summer of famine, they began to spread lies in different cities and villages about the roaming bands of beggars and unemployed, calling them bandits and arsonists who killed women and children.
- The revolutionaries continued to mislead the people by showing them a printing press, which they claimed, was an instrument of torture. They also asserted that an old suit of armor had been used as a straitjacket for refractory prisoners.
- On the following day, July 14th, people were incited to head for the Bastille fortress with axes in their hands. Contrary to what the Illuminati’s myths say about it, there was no storming and capture of the Bastille. It simply capitulated to the threats of four freemasons. In this way the Bastille was taken. Actually, it was quite meaningless to take the Bastille – the authorities had already decided to demolish it to build a housing area.
- On the 13th of July 1789, at 11 o’clock, the conspirators gathered at the church of Prix Saint-Antoine where they set up a revolutionary committee and discussed how to organize the revolutionary militia. Dufour from the Grand Orient chaired the meeting. Even the fall of the Bastille was planned by these freemasons, according to Gustave Bord’s testimony. (V. Ivanov, “The Secrets of Freemasonry”, Moscow, 1992, p. 120.)
- As a kind of prelude, Mirabeau called in the Estates-General on May 5th 1789, just after the thirteenth anniversary of the Illuminati’s founding. Marx described Mirabeau as the “lion of the revolution”.
- Another bad omen was that the winter of 1788-1789 in France was extremely severe. The harbor of Marseille froze over. All traffic between Dover and Calais stopped. The mills iced over and could not grind flour, so that the shortage of bread became disastrous.
- France’s exports had multiplied ten times during the century. Industry and agriculture had made great advances. The French network of more than 40 000 kilometers of stone-paved roads was admired by an amazed world. (Rene Sedillot, “Le cout de la Revolution francaise” / “The Cost of the French Revolution”, Paris, 1986.)
- Louis XVI had reformed the judicial system, abolished torture in 1788, humanized the prisons and developed the health service. He paved the way for the fall of the monarchy through constant, small concessions to the freemasons and the Illuminati. The revolution was not organized in a destitute country, but in a flourishing nation.
- Marat and Robespierre officially belonged to a “revolutionary” organization, The embittered. The Association of equals had also been active in Paris since 1786. This organization had, in the same year, already decided where to imprison the “enemies of the people”. The revolutionary leaders Mirabeau, Garat, Robespierre, Marat, Danton, Desmoulins and many others were Illuminati, according to Gerald B. Winrod, “Adam Weishaupt – a Human Devil” (p. 36).
- Many lampoons against Queen Marie Antoinette began to circulate in Paris (Svenska Dagbladet, 27th September 1987). After this, leaflets were spread to incite the people to revolt. The aim of the freemasons was to dethrone the king. The propaganda machine was skillfully tended. Marie Antoinette became a symbol of all evil in the kingdom. These so-called revolutionaries, who worked to undermine the established order, were often young and many among them were Jews or freemasons, according to the historian Henrik Berggren, Ph. D. (Dagens Syheter, 20th January 1987, Berggren’s “The Grammar of the Revolution”). The three hundred men who seized power under the French Revolution were all Illuminati. (Gerald B. Winrod, “Adam Weishaupt – a Human Devil”, p. 37.)
