The Taxil ‘Hoax’ & the Morgan Affair Reinvestigated

December 21, 2011

     Now you might know the Masonic version of the Taxil Hoax and Morgan affair, – though you’ll tend to find it conveniently overlooks one or two very important observations, and certianly begs the question, whether it is was an hoax at all, – and that in fact – in the other case, it was indeed ‘fellow’ Freemason’s who see to the disposal of Mr Morgan.  Though before responding, – why not examine the following article first, and then come back with something you might, or might not agree or disagree with.

     Léo Taxil [1854-1907] [real name Antoine Jogand-Pagès], was raised since a child by the Jesuits, and claimed that Freemasonry is associated with worshipping Lucifer.  In what is known as the Taxil hoax, [1] he claimed that supposedly leading Freemason Albert Pike had addressed: The 23 Supreme Confederated Councils of the world [an alleged invention of Taxil’s], instructing them that Lucifer was God, and was in opposition to the evil god Adonai.  Taxil promoted a book by Diana Vaughan, – in 1897 he had admitted he actually written it by himself, – that purported to reveal a highly secret ruling body called the Palladium, which controlled the organisation and had a Satanic agenda. 

     Okay, let’s not forget, it was April 19th 1897 when Taxil allegedly admitted his hoax, Freemasonry was at the height of its existence, membership was swelling into the high millions, and it was big business all round.  Who knows, but it’s quite possible that dark forces within the fraternity paid Taxil a visit, and reminded him of the Morgan Affair, [which I’ll get to soon], and that if he doesn’t denounce what he has written, then some similar fate might perhaps befall him, or other members of his family. [1]

     The Anti-Masonic Party was formed in upstate New York in 1828.  And they say mud sticks, because what was being said then, is being repeated even more loudly 183 years later in 2011, – but back then, as still now, many more people feared the Freemasons, and believed they were a powerful secret society that was trying to rule the USA. – These anti-Masons came together after the Morgan affair convinced them the Freemasons were murdering their opponents. [2]

     In 1826 Morgan wrote a book; Illustrations of Freemasonry, which revealed Masonic secrets.  Unlike Léo Taxil revelations being branded as a hoax, the same as not been said about Morgan’s exposé.  One of the secrets that he revealed is that the last mystery at the top of the Masonic pyramid is the “worship of Lucifer” [3].  And goes on to say: “We have since learned the secret of the story of the murder of Hiram Abif. Hiram Abif represents intelligence, liberty and truth, and was struck down by a blow to the neck with a rule, representing the suppression of speech by the church; then he was struck in the heart with the square, representing the suppression of belief by the State; and finally he was struck on the head by a Maul, representing the suppression of intellect by the masses. Freemasonry thus equates the Church, the State, and the masses with tyranny, intolerance, and ignorance”.  And as you can see, it’s a slant on the Masonic version of CHiram Abif’s fate, and the other three ‘ruffians’, who allegedly did him in, – as opposed to Morgan’s dig at the Masonic-clergy-politicians of the day, who then, like now where and still are Freemasons.  

     Here Morgan seems to reveal that the Freemasons were pledged to avenge Hiram [CHiram] Abif, and that their plan was to strike down the Church, the State, and the freedom of the masses in general, and also refers to the fact that the higher echelons of the Order worshiped Lucifer.  And it is said because of these accusations and revelations, they were key to the sudden and mysterious disappearance of William Morgan [1774-1826?], a Freemason of Batavia, New York, who had become dissatisfied with his lodge and intended to publish a book detailing the secrets of the Freemasons.  When his intentions became known to the lodge, an attempt was made to burn down the publishing house. [1]

     Eventually in September 1826, Morgan was arrested on charges of petty larceny.  Some unknown person then paid his debt and upon his release, he was apprehended by some other persons and taken to an old fortification known as Fort Niagara, after which he then disappeared.  There are several versions of what might have happened next, and among the most common, is that Morgan was taken in a boat to the middle of the Niagara River and drowned.  A man named Henry L. Valance allegedly confessed to his part in the murder in 1848, and his deathbed confession is retold in chapter two of Reverend C. G. Finney’s book: The Character, Claims, and Practical Workings of Freemasonry. [4]

     Don’t forget the oath of initiation into the Freemasons, states that if secrets are told, the initiate will be murdered and in a gruesome way at that.  A little more than a year after Morgan disappeared, in October 1827, a badly decomposed body was washed up on the edge of Lake Ontario and presumed by many to be that of Morgan’s, and was buried as such, even though the clothing was positively identified as that of a missing Canadian, Timothy Monroe, by his widow.

     Again for this kind of ‘cover-up’ and miss-burial to be able to happen would have to involve police officers and at least some other officials and at least a coroner.

     Freemason’s deny that Morgan was killed, saying instead that he was paid $500 to leave the country.  There have been numerous reports of Morgan being seen in other countries, but none have been confirmed.  Three Freemasons, Loton Lawon, Nicholas Chesebro and Edward Sawyer, were charged with, convicted and served “sentences” for the kidnapping of Morgan.  Can you believe those names being their real ones?  All Masons have another name, a “lodge name”, and on the page 4 of: A Ritual and Illustrations of freemasonry, and a Key to the Phi Beta Kappa, inked stamped 1883, – it’s full of silly surnames.  It shows an example of how a lodge should record it’s minutes of their meetings, so use alias names, such as; James Dupeasy, William Gamester, Judah C. Hoodwink etc., even the ‘Judah C’, could be pronounced and have the same sound as ‘Judice’ as in ‘Sub Judice’ which means “under judgment,”, and particular a case or matter currently under trial or being considered by a judge or court.

     Like I’ve say there seems to be a lot of double meaning to many a thing in the world of Freemasonry and the word hoodwink is one of those things, the dictionary defines the word and meaning of Hoodwink; to influence by slyness, beguile, cheat, rip off, chisel.  To conceal one’s true motives from especially by elaborately feigning good intentions so as to gain an end, to bamboozle, lead by the nose, play false, pull the wool over someone’s eyes, deceive, lead astray, betray etc.

     A hoodwink is also headdress designed to cover the eyes, also used on a falcon who has a hood over its eyes until ready to strike at its prey.  On initiation into the order the initiate is blindfolded. – A symbol of the secrecy, silence and darkness in which the mysteries of our art should be preserved from the unhallowed gaze of the profane.  It has been supposed to have a symbolic reference to the passage in Saint John’s Gospel [I, 5]; “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”. But it is more certain that there is in ‘the Hoodwink’ [5] a representation of the mystical darkness which always preceded the rites of the ancient initiations; Mackey’s Encyclopedia of Freemasonry. – In The Builder – September 1923 it states: Like the manner in which the candidate finds himself clothed, and the way whereby he finds himself rendered helpless and utterly dependent on his guides, the Hoodwink may be considered as a symbol of the weakness and destitution of the uninitiated. [6] 

     Initiation is a process of birth into a new world, or into a new relation, or into a new order of experience: relative to that new world into which he is about to enter, the candidate is like the babe unborn, a helpless creature lying bound in its mother’s womb.  Accordingly he is in darkness: not yet born he has no use of his eyes and no light whereby to see if he could use them.  – The name of those convicted of Morgan’s kidnapping, and all those involved in the case, including the police and judge were almost guaranteed to have been Freemasons, who knew they were in turn sentencing Freemasons, and that their names weren’t real, so therefore, the trial could have been staged, to quail the anger of the anti-Mason brigade.  And the convicted men were possibly led out of the dock, towards the jail, – then released on-route somewhere else.  Loton Lawon = No Law, Nicholas Chesebro = Cheers Bro, the drinking clinking ritual from the 1800’s origin, and greeting a fellow “brother”, and Edward Sawyer = “Saw you/ya”, as in “see you do it”.  I’m not saying those examples are correct or have any significant connection, – who really knows, but their names just don’t feel right somehow.  Freemason’s love a double entendre and anagrams etc., so wouldn’t be surprised if I wasn’t that far off the masons mark, as their own above examples seems to  show in the case of; Dupeasy, Gamester and Hoodwink.

     The event created a bit of an uproar, which led to many believing that not just the local lodge, but the whole of Freemasonry was in discord with good citizenship.  Because after all judges, businessmen, bankers, and politicians were quite often Freemasons, and ordinary folk began to think of it as an elitist group.  Moreover, many claimed that the lodge’s secret oaths bound the brethren to favour each other against outsiders, in the courts as well as elsewhere.

     The same accusations of similar practices are still taking place to this very day; as I’ve said, Jack Straw’s decision in 2009, to not insist that members of the judiciary declare they’re a Freemason, is a prime example of this kind of thing going on.

     Because the trial of the Morgan conspirators was mishandled, and the Masons resisted further inquiries, many New Yorkers concluded that Freemasons; “Controlled key offices and used their official authority to promote the goals of the fraternity.  When a member sought to reveal its ‘secrets’, so ran the conclusion, they had done away with him, and because they controlled the officials, were capable of obstructing the investigation.  If good government was to be restored all Masons must be purged from public office”.

     And this is what needs to happen today, as what are the odds that three of the most powerful and influential men in the UK today, the unelected Prime Minister David Cameron, unelected Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, and the elected Mayor of London Boris Johnson were all “Buller men”, members of The Bullingdon Club at Oxford University, which is  as closely connected to the Alpha, Delta, Kappa Greek like college fraternities or dining clubs or secret societies such as the Skull and Bones – “Bonesmen” of Yale or other Ivy League university’s etc., – that one can only imagine how much under the table bucket loads of cash and dodgy Masonic business deals must be going on in the corridors of power. 

     And that’s how the Freemasons work, they put forward and place into positions of power the most pliable candidates who will of course work for the fraternity and not for the people, their current behaviour and what they are presently doing to the country is surely obvious enough this is what’s taking place right under our noses, i.e. working hand in glove with the financial terrorist cabal in the banking sector, as their real job and concern is to repay those who put them in power, and then line their own pockets, and create their family fortunes knowing full well they will soon be kicked out of office anyway. 

     Cameron, like Thatcher, Blair, Brown or Clegg, and any other career politician doesn’t give a toss about the general public and never have done.  I believe Cameron and Clegg are the most dangerous politicians to gain the reins of power in decades, as were Mrs Thatcher, “War Criminal” Blair and gasping for air Brown who took the saying; ‘a fish out of water’ to another abstract level of meaning, – but those two presently running our so called coalition government, and wanting to flog off our National Health Service, – are as dodgy as fuck.

     I worked for years in the sales environment and believe me that’s exactly what Cameron and his extra Clegg are, “salesmen”, just listen to them, watch their postures, hand gestures and eye movement, and your notice they don’t like to make actual eye contact with anyone, and if they do so, then it’s to a person they instinctually know they can.  These men are on a coalition-course to destroy our country, whilst making guaranteed millions for themselves, their families and their ‘brothers in arms’, as the beauty of their coalition positions, – is that it allows them to point the finger of blame at the “other” guy, and even at us, because after all they’re trying to lead us into believing we too are being given power to run the country via their “Big Catastrophe”.

     The only time you ever see political supporters on the ground with their party coloured T-Shirts, banners, posters and balloons etc., is because it’s the families and friends of all the other Freemasons, – which sadly adds up to quite a few million of them.  And this is why we’re in the shit were presently in, or I should say, always in, – and this is the real reason an “anti-Freemason party” needs to be founded, because as it presently stands virtually all members of the three main political parties are Freemasons, – so we will never be able to escape their clutches, or get a free and independent representation, as privately they all belong to the same clubs and fraternities, – and why we’re forever be trapped in a Masonic world.

     The public considered the Freemasons to be an exclusive organisation taking unfair advantage of common folk and violating the essential principles of democracy.  True American’s, they said, “had to organise and defeat this conspiracy”. – In June 1881 in Pembroke, New York, a grave was discovered in a quarry two miles south of the Indian reservation, and in it a metal box containing a crumpled paper with a few still-readable words hinting that the body might have been Morgan’s.  So there you have it, some say Morgan was killed, whilst some Freemasons openly admit they paid Morgan $500 dollars to leave the country, and if that was the case, was it not also possible that a similar monetary offer was made to Leo Taxil, to confess his allegations about the Freemasons were false, and if he were not to take-up their kind financial offer, then perhaps a similar fate would greet him as that of William Morgan’s.

     Though it seems to me, the Freemason’s needed some kind of scapegoat, and ‘perhaps’ even invented the whole ‘Taxil Hoax’ themselves, knowing that the contents of Taxil’s, alias Diana Vaughan’s book – The Devil in the Nineteenth Century – who’s revelations were so farfetched, i.e. ‘one of the demons had written prophecies on her back with its tail, and another who played the piano in the shape of a crocodile,’ – that to anyone with a minimum of intellect, would have instantly dismissed it as hoax, – though with the ‘way things work’, and that in that particular time when all things ‘spiritual and to do with the occult’ in general was all the fashion, it would have been bantered about as being ‘the truth’, which of course would of then lead on to ridicule, – misinformation and thus disinformation being spread far and wide, days, pre mass telephone, TV, radio and internet, and when ‘word of mouth’, Chinese whispers and gossip was the only real forms of communication. 

     The Taxil “hoax” took place in the 1890’s, and of course it was an hoax, and I’ll go one step further, – it was the biggest load of unbelievable and implausible bollocks someone could intentionally write on the subject of “the devil in the 19th century”, – it was a ‘straw-man’ of the literal kind, – so if anyone was stupid enough, – which they still are to this very day, to start quoting from it, and arguing; “Yeah but, no but I read about dem mason people doing all sorts of nasty things,- yeah, and that they even worship something called loo-see-far,- me read it with me own one eye…”

     I say all this, – because a number of Papal pronouncements have been issued against Freemasonry, including those already mentioned, though prior to them,  Pope Clement XII wrote; In Eminenti, and published the 28th April 1738, condemning Freemasonry.  Then on the 9th November 1846 Pope Pius IX published his already mentioned Papal Encyclical: Qui Pluribus that makes a scathing attack against the Freemasons.  Then some years later, and on the 20th April 1884, Pope XIII published his Humanum Genus – Encyclical on Freemasonry, [and below is a section from it], and then among the last one published, also by Pope Leo XIII’s, was Ab Apostolici, on the 15th  October 1890, again slaughtering the Masonic fraternity, – and not long prior to the release of Taxil’s/Vaughan’s; The Devil in the Nineteenth Century. 

     Here’s part of Humanum Genus by Pope Leo XIII; -“In consequence, the sect of Freemasons grew with rapidity beyond conception in the course of a century and a half, until it came to be able, by means of fraud or of audacity, to gain such entrance into every rank of the State as to seem to be almost its ruling power. 

    There are several organised bodies which, though differing in name, in ceremonial, in form and origin, are nevertheless so bound together by community of purpose and by the similarity of their main opinions, as to make in fact one thing with the sect of the Freemasons, which is a kind of centre whence they all go forth, and whither they all return.  Now, these no longer show a desire to remain concealed; for they hold their meetings in the daylight and before the public eye, and publish their own newspaper organs; and yet, when thoroughly understood, they are found still to retain the nature and the habits of secret societies.

     There are many things like mysteries which it is the fixed rule to hide with extreme care, not only from strangers, but from very many members, also; such as their secret and final designs, the names of the chief leaders, and certain secret and inner meetings, as well as their decisions, and the ways and means of carrying them out. This is, no doubt, the object of the manifold difference among the members as to right, office, and privilege, of the received distinction of orders and grades, and of that severe discipline which is maintained.

     Candidates are generally commanded to promise – nay, with a special oath, to swear – that they will never, to any person, at any time or in any way, make known the members, the passes, or the subjects discussed.

     Thus, with a fraudulent external appearance, and with a style of simulation which is always the same, the Freemasons, like the Manichees of old, strive, as far as possible, to conceal themselves, and to admit no witnesses but their own members.  As a convenient manner of concealment, they assume the character of literary men and scholars associated for purposes of learning.  They speak of their zeal for a more cultured refinement and of their love for the poor; and they declare their one wish to be the amelioration of the condition of the masses, and to share with the largest possible number all the benefits of civil life. 

     Were these purposes aimed at in real truth, they are by no means the whole of their object. Moreover, to be enrolled, it is necessary that the candidates promise and undertake to be thenceforward strictly obedient to their leaders and masters with the utmost submission and fidelity, and to be in readiness to do their bidding upon the slightest expression of their will; or, if disobedient, to submit to the direst penalties and death itself. As a fact, if any are judged to have betrayed the doings of the sect, or to have resisted commands given, punishment is inflicted on them not infrequently, and with so much audacity and dexterity that the assassin very often escapes the detection and penalty of his crime.” [7]
