Update January 1, 2012: Although I have changed my mind regarding the Bavarian Illuminati and don’t support their mission at all, understanding that they are more possibly than not just the other side of the same coin as the Global Elite, I have decided to keep this article up. The fact still remains that this is the original Illuminati Group, which normally is not the one group that truthseekers and researchers are talking about when they mention The Illuminati. I also have come to the realization that most members of the Bavarian Illuminati are not aware of that they are just another version of the Old World Order, run by the same controllers at the top.
The Bavarian Illuminati is probably the most misunderstood secret society in modern history. Adam Weishaupt (1748-1811) founded this “new” secret society in the 1700s, but it was indeed not new at all; it’s been around for thousands of years but under different names. During Weishaupt’s lifetime, however, this organization was revealed in public. The Bavarian Illuminati in an earlier form created the Knights Templar and Freemasonry to safeguard ancient esoteric knowledge from coming into the hands of the Power Elite and was set up as an opposition to the powers-that-be.
The Freemasons, under the influence of the Bavarian Illuminati, started a new branch of Freemasonry – Freemasonry of the Scottish Rite with its 33 degrees (33°) of initiation where also the esoteric knowledge from the Knights Templar were intermixed. After had begun as a benevolent organization, it was soon infiltrated by the malevolent Brotherhood and eventually taken over by them. Today it is one of the most (if not the most) powerful secret society in the world, including members within high politics, religious leaders, businessmen and other for them useful individuals. As we speak, the head of Freemasonry worldwide is the Rothschild Banking Family.
The Illuminati had its own degrees aside from the 33 degrees of Freemasonry. Even persons who were initiated into the higher degrees of Freemasonry had no knowledge of the Illuminati grades – it was that secret. Weishaupt planned to take the power away from the malevolent Brotherhood and his main enemies were the Royal Bloodlines, and he made up distinct strategies to create a One World Government and a New World Order to counter the Power Elite. He had seen the oppression people lived under from the ruling Kings of the world and he wanted to put an end to it. Although stationed in Bavaria, Germany, the Bavarian Illuminati was a world-wide organization, working in secret with a secret membership clan.
At that time, the Bavarian Illuminati was a revolutionary organization and they are the ones behind the French Revolution, they helped with the Russian Revolution and was also the force behind the American Revolution in conspiracy with a still benevolent Freemasonry. Weishaupt was friends with both George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and other Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson, America’s third President, was a member of the Bavarian Illuminati. All these three revolutions had one thing is common – they ended the oppression of the ruling Kings! The Bavarian Illuminati wanted to re-establish the old Greek and Roman Republics as a much more humane political system.
As we all know, Vladimir Lenin made Russia into a Communist country. At the time, the Bavarian Illuminati supported this particular political system as an experiment, but it went out of hand once Stalin took over. And if we look at America today, the vision of our Founding Fathers is totally destroyed! There is nothing left of the original American Republic. The republic has become a “democracy”, which was never the intention of the Founding Fathers, and on top of that, it’s an illusionary democracy where the people actually don’t have any power, although they are told they do. The real power is back with the Elite. Instead of having a King overtly ruling over us (which is exactly what the Founding Fathers had fought so hard to avoid, breaking loose from King George’s of England oppressive reign) we now have Presidents “elected” from the most powerful Elite Bloodlines on the planet, and if we look at their ancestry, we notice they are of the same royal bloodlines as King George and Luis XIV of France. So we are back where we started, and everything the Founding Fathers fought for has been destroyed, and the American people in their ignorance and laziness let it happen. Hence the mess we are in. The Power Elite infiltrated Freemasonry and took over the country from the Freedom Fighters and we, the people let America decline…
The Bavarian Illuminati was a serious threat to the powers-that-be and due to the success of the resistance, the malevolent Brotherhood suffered a major setback. So they had to be destroyed! A plot against them was created and this is assumingly how it was done:
The “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” were probably written by Lionel Rothschild and described in details how a certain Power Elite were planning to take over the world. Some people say these documents are a hoax, but they are not. It doesn’t matter who actually wrote them, because if you read them you will see they are an amazingly accurate blueprint for the Power Elite Agenda, and everything in there has happened or is just about to happen! If a document shows you exactly what is happening, you can hardly call it a hoax.
However, the secrets leaked, intentionally or unintentionally! An emissary for the Rothschilds was allegedly struck by lightning when he rode over a field, carrying the Protocols, and they were found and revealed to the world. This was in the 1770’s. Weishaupt and his Illuminati organization were falsely accused of having written them and plotted against manking, and Weishaupt and his co-conspirators had to flee and work underground, due to that their organization now was banned.
The Bavarian Illuminati, however, has survived to this day and is no longer a revolutionary organization, but is working on a spiritual level as well as a political, still in opposition to the Rothschilds and the powers-that-be. They even have a website where they are revealing, little by little, the truth about the malevolent Brotherhood, themselves and a possible future for mankind. Here is their website, and I assure you there is some interesting reading! I am not affiliated with them or any other organizations (I am working entirely on my own), but there is a lot of previously hidden and extremely important information on that website, which I strongly recommend you to take part of. You may or may not agree to their ideas of ringing in their own version of a New World Order, but in spite of what you think about them, they are opposed to the Power Elite and have always been.
Most researchers today call the malevolent Brotherhood “The Illuminati”. You can see this term on numerous websites, in books and in videos and movies. This is unfortunate, because it’s a mix-up, making us attack the wrong group. The malevolent Brotherhood never seriously call themselves “The Illuminati” when they refer to their network – the Brotherhood is a more accurate term to use. The Illuminati is, and has always been the “Bavarian Illuminati”, who are opposed to the Evil Powers!
So how could his mix-up happen? Partly because the Bavarian Illuminati is totally misunderstood due to the attack it was under in the late 1700s. Most researchers are under the impression that the Bavarian Illuminati is equivalent to the Brotherhood, hence the most common term for the Power Network is now “The Illuminati”. Then, of course, the malevolent Brotherhood has added fuel to this fire by officially sometimes referring to themselves as the Illuminati to further confuse the issue. They have also infiltrated the “truth movement” to spread disinformation about themselves and their opponents to make people confused and give up their investigations into the Power Elite. So be very careful when you do this kind of research. Don’t take anything at face value without investigating it yourself and do your own research.
