"Tension filled the room upon his
arrival. The group immediately went behind closed doors. A short time
later Lyndon, anxious and red-faced, reappeared... Squeezing my hand so
hard, it felt crushed from the pressure, he spoke with a grating
whisper, a quiet growl, into my ear, not a love message, but one I'll
always remember: "After tomorrow those goddamn Kennedys will never
embarrass me again - that's no threat - that's a promise.".

J. McCloy was a member of the now discredited Warren Commission which
"investigated" the assassination, appointed by none other than Johnson.
Nixon himself was in Dallas on the day of the assassination.

The Anti-Masonic Party
The Lion's Grip of the Order
In 1828, hoping to avert the total
subversion of the democratic process; the Anti-Masonic Party was formed
to counterbalance the threat of secret societies to both church and
state; this through the most peaceful and practical means at our disposal,
the ballot. But what happened to Capt. Morgan more than 150 years
ago was not only revisited in 1963, but grievously exceeded in cruelty
and depravity; as the execution was carried out not in secret, as
was the case with Morgan's murder; but before the world in Dallas,
before women and children.

Convention; Address to the People of the United States
Held in Philadelphia, September
"In this alarming emergency,
the agents of government seemed paralyzed. Our public institutions and provisions
for the preservation of tranquility, and the repression of crime, seemed
nugatory. And without the use of other means than the law, and its official
ministers, the most daring and brutal inroads, upon our dearest rights,
would have passed off, without effort to understand their origin, punish
their instruments, or provide against their recurrence. No arts were left
untried by freemasons to baffle the pursuit of truth, and defeat the administration
"The lion's grip of the order
was upon our courts, and loyalty to that, displaced fealty to the state.
If freemasonry ought to be abolished, it should certainly be so abolished
as to prevent its restoration. No means of doing this can be conceived so
competent as those furnished by the ballot boxes.
"That murder has been committed, is now acknowledged by all.
That it has been so committed, and the malefactors have acted
under such authority, and have been so aided and comforted, as
to carry the guilt of treason, cannot be doubted. Protection
from these crimes, is the first duty of government, and the
object for which it is invested with its highest powers. But
protection cannot be secured, by the ordinary means. Shall it
therefore be abandoned? Shall we forego, in behalf of'
freemasonry, or through fear of it, the primary purpose of civil
"These means are commended to
our adoption, by the most urgent considerations, by their mildness, their
safety, their sufficiency, and the tested insufficiency of all others. They
are the means provided, by the most venerated of our political fathers.
Who shall disparage them? Whoever is opposed to freemasonry and really desires
its extinction, must use them, or confess himself a slave or tyrant. To
extinguish it, by violence, would be tyranny, if it were possible. To extinguish
it, by the expression of honest convictions against it, would not be tyranny,
but it cannot be accomplished, unless a majority unite in such expression;
and whether they do or not, cannot be ascertained, without a general vote.
To desire its [freemasonry's] extinction, and do nothing to effect it, must
proceed from indolence, fear, or the imagined force of assumed obligations
in its favour, either of which amounts to a degrading slavery. To such slavery
who is willing to submit? In truth none, who are not opposed to using every
other means against it, are opposed to using our elective rights against
it; and those who are opposed to using our elective rights against it, uniformly
use their elective rights in its favour. The higher freemasons are expressly
sworn to do it. Thus they adopt a conduct, which they stigmatize in us,
as oppressive and persecuting, and which is so, when adopted secretly, by
virtue of unlawful obligations, and in favour of a class of citizens, who
associate for securing to themselves unequal privileges.
"Anti-masons would defend
their rights, the laws of their country, and the most sacred treasures
of liberty, from a fearful assault. Seeking to preserve and perpetuate
all the blessings intended to be secured, by our government, they would
proceed, in the spirit of strict conformity with its provisions. And they
invite all, who appreciate these blessings, to join them. They have no
secret purposes to accomplish-- no selfish objects to promote-- no time,
nor means to cast away, in idle ostentation, or for useless notoriety.
They know the country is in danger; and they come forth, from their retirements,
to shield it. On their farms, in their shops, at their counters, in their
offices, and at their desks, they have heard the wail of the bereaved
widow and orphans, and, feeling the sympathies of humanity, they have
inquired how they became so...
"Murder and treason they
cannot help regarding with abhorrence, however disguised; and will resist,
whoever may perpetrate or abet them. Their chosen weapon of resistance
is the right of suffrage-- a weapon of equal power in every freeman's
hand, and which is so tempered, as they trust, in the armory of patriotism,
that neither the keen nor solid of freemasonry may resist its edge.
"Fellow citizens, are we called
to be anti-masons by the best feelings of our nature? Are our objects
the highest that can effect the civil character? Are our means the most
approved and indispensable? Unite with us-- not for our sakes, but your
own-- Aid us in working out the redemption of our country from freemasonry.
We are misrepresented and calumniated, as the chief public means of defeating
the cause we have espoused. Examine by whom, and inquire into their motives.
Be not deceived. If individuals among us are in fault, through ignorance,
or passion, or interest, or profligacy, refuse them your confidence. But
do not, therefore, betray your rights, and those of your country; nor
let those beguile you into their support, who prefer secrecy to publicity,
and freemasonry to republicanism. We are for practical, peaceable, and
most necessary reform-- not for the destruction, but the establishment
of right. Freedom, in every beneficial sense, is the soul of anti-masonry.
"The first and most prominent
injunction of freemasonry is secrecy. Any violation of this it punishes
with infamy and death. Secrecy is the shutting up of the mind from communion
with other minds. And so far as it prevails, in relation to any social
good, it is selfish, sour, ignorant, and restless....
"But there are other members
of very different character, who adhere to it, with a tenacity exactly
proportioned to their estimate of its adaptation to their evil designs.
[George] Washington represented it as capable of being employed for the
basest purposes, and never visited a lodge, but once or twice, in the
last thirty years of his life.
"To this government freemasonry
is wholly opposed. It requires unresisting submission to its own authority
in contempt of public opinion-- the claims of conscience-- and the rights
of private judgment. It would dam up the majestic current of improving
thoughts, among all its subjects throughout the earth, by restricting
beneficial communication. In attempting to do this, it has stained our
country with a brother's blood, tempted many of our influential citizens
into the most degrading forms of falsehood, and burst away, with its powers
undiminished, its vengeance provoked, and its pollution manifest, from
the strong arm of distributive justice...
"It is one of the striking
evidences of the wisdom of the framers of our constitution, and a bright
presage of its perpetuity, that it is fit for all emergencies. It [the
Constitution] contains provisions, which are abundantly adequate to the
subversion of freemasonry. Perfectly convinced, that such a subversion
must be effected or our liberties wrested from us, let us inquire, what
are these provisions?
"They consist in the just exercise
of the rights reserved by the people to themselves, as the great constituent,
supervising proprietors of the republic...
"The abuses of which we complain
involve the highest crimes, of which man can be guilty, because they indicate
the deepest malice, and the most fatal aim. They bespeak the most imminent
danger, because they have proceeded from a conspiracy more numerous and
better organized for mischief, than any other detailed in the records
of man, and yet, though exposed, maintaining itself, in all its monstrous
power. That murder has been committed, is now acknowledged by all. That
it has been so committed, and the malefactors have acted under such authority,
and have been so aided and comforted, as to carry the guilt of treason,
cannot be doubted. Protection from these crimes, is the first duty of
government, and the object for which it is invested with its highest powers.
But protection cannot be secured, by the ordinary means. Shall it therefore
be abandoned? Shall we forego, in behalf of' freemasonry, or through fear
of it, the primary purpose of civil organization? If we are true to ourselves
it is certain we need not forego it; we can practically enforce it: for
the rights of election remain. In these may be found full means-- not
of punishing the criminals-- but of precluding any repetition of their
crimes-- of giving us that security against them, which is better than
punishment; which is, indeed, the only proper object of all human punishment.
The use of these means we advocate. Our adversaries reprobate it, and
represent it as oppressive and persecuting.
"The exercise of the elective franchise
is as much a function of our government as any one performed, by legislatures,
executive magistrates, or judges. And the honest, intelligent, and fearless
use of it, by all to whom it pertains, is as much a duty, in every case, as
a similar use of other functions is, in any case, by those to whom they pertain.
Such a use of the elective function is the duty most imperious, because it is
the great corrective, in the last resort, of all other functions.
"To say that the powers of government
should not be applied to the masonic outrages at all, would be so preposterous,
as justly to excite suspicion of being implicated in them. Besides, it is now
too late for any persons to say this with consistency; for since the inadequacy
of all judicial application to them has been apparent, even adhering freemasons
say it was not improper to appeal to the courts: "punish the guilty." But if
it was proper to appeal to the courts, in the first place, and that appeal has
been rendered nugatory by the criminal interference of freemasonry, the reason
for appealing to the powers of government against the outrages is immeasurably
strengthened, not diminished. There is, therefore, no impropriety in resorting
to the elective franchise to correct the evils of freemasonry. It invades no
man's rights. It gives no man reason to complain. It is no more disreputable
than it is to resort to a legislature, or a court of law, for the correction
of an evil, which they were instituted to redress. Would it be tolerated, for
a moment, to stigmatize as oppression and persecution a resort to our legislators
for the passage of a law to promote the public security; or to our judicial
tribunals, for the punishment of crime? Neither can it be, thus to stigmatize
a resort to the elective franchise, for the abolishing of freemasonry, which
is fatal to all security, and the very charnal house of crime..."
Account of the Savage Treatment of Captain William Morgan, in Fort Niagara
Who was subsequently
murdered by the masons, and sunk in Lake Ontario, for publishing the SECRETS
by Edward Giddins,
formerly keeper of the fort and a Royal Arch Mason. Copyright 1996 Acacia Press, Incorporated MONTAGUE,
MASSACHUSETTS. Originally Published: 1829 BOSTON: ANTI-MASONIC BOOKSTORE
CAPTAIN WILLIAM MORGAN, of New
York, an intelligent man, and an inflexible republican, convinced of the
dangers of Secret Societies, in a free Government, resolved to use his best
endeavors for their suppression. Being a Royal Arch Mason, he had witnessed
the corruption of the Institution. He saw it was an engine of personal advantage
and political aggrandizement; that it gave to its members unfair advantages
and extra privileges over the unsuspecting community; that its insidious
influence extended to every transaction in society, raising as it were the
Masonic combination unto a PRIVILEGED ORDER, who, under the Royal Names
of GRAND KINGS, Grand Sovereigns, and Grand High Priests, in darkness and
secrecy, ruled and plundered the people.
CAPTAIN MORGAN was a soldier and
a brave man. He saw this detestable conspiracy and he dared to risk his
life by bursting its shackles and warning an injured people! He was seized
by a gang of Masonic desperadoes, who came 60 miles after him, in the morning
about sunrise, Sept. 11, 1826, under a pretended process of law, (in the
manner Mr. Jacob Allen was taken by Masons at Reading) and carried 60 miles,
and placed for safe keeping in a county jail, in the care of a masonic jailer.
Thence he was taken in stillness of the night, crying murder! murder! and
transported one hundred miles further, and placed in a U.S. fortress, also
in the keeping of a Mason. Here Mr. Giddin's account commences. Thus it
appears that our county jails and our national fortresses are all at the
service of the Masons, to carry their bloody schemes of kidnapping and murder
Will a free and patriotic people
submit to these things in silence? Fellow citizens! Read this pamphlet,
and answer the question, ought a secret society to exist amongst us whose
members can commit murder and yet escape punishment? MASONS HAVE done this,
and their brethren, as may be seen by the oaths on our last page, are sworn
to protect them.
Fellow citizens, are men bound
by such Obligations and possessing such principals, FIT to be rulers of
a FREE PEOPLE?

A Statement of the facts
Relative to the confinement
of WILLIAM MORGAN in Fort Niagara, and such parts of that conspiracy as
fell within the knowledge of the writer
In presenting the following statement of facts, I beg leave
to observe that I have no other excuse to make for the part I took in this
foul transaction, than that I was a Royal Arch Mason, and did at that time
consider my masonic obligations binding upon my conscience; and now, since
these obligations are before the public, I am willing to abide by their
decision, how much I was actuated by principles and how much by fear; one
thing, however, is certain, that although nothing could have been more repugnant
to my natural feelings, yet a sense of duty, and the horrid consequences
of refusal, outweighed every other consideration.
In justice to those who took
part in this transaction, I would observe, that as far as I am acquainted
with them, I feel warranted in saying, that they were urged to those excesses
by a strong sense of duty, they blindly thought themselves bound by the
most horrid penalties, to perform; and it is to be hoped that the world
will be charitable to them by commiserating their misfortunes and extenuating
their faults, should they renounce this iniquitous combination, and honestly
and fearlessly disclose the parts they acted in this conspiracy, and the
causes which urged them to it; but, should they still persist in their obstinate
silence, they must not expect that lenity which they otherwise might be
entitled to from an indulgent public.
It is to be hoped that an institution
whose very principles lead directly to such horrid outrages, and which is
entirely made up of dissimulation and fraud, will be completely suppressed
in this country and throughout the world, and that a barrier be instituted
to prevent it from ever again polluting the earth with its insidious influence.
But the public must not expect to accomplish this desirable object without
unwanted pains and incessant vigilance; their task is but commencing, and,
should they lack in circumspection or perseverance, the monster will yet
flourish with more power and commit greater enormities than ever.
