"There is sufficient evidence that a number of societies, of the Illuminati, have been established in this land of Gospel light and civil liberty, which were first organized from the grand society, in France. They are doubtless secretly striving to undermine all our ancient institutions, civil and sacred. These societies are closely leagued with those of the same Order, in Europe; they have all the same object in view. The enemies of all order are seeking our ruin. Should infidelity generally prevail, our independence would fall of course. Our republican government would be annihilated."
Joseph Willard
(1738-1804) U.S. Congregational clergyman, President of Harvard University
4 July 1812, A Sermon Preached in Lancaster … on the Anniversary of Our National Independence … Before the Washington Benevolent Societies of Lancaster and Guildhall (Windsor, Vermont: Thomas M. Pomroy, 1812), pp. 14–15
[Ed. note - Willard died in 1804, who delivered the sermon in 1812?]

Real obvious for anyone that has eyes to see and ears to hear; everyone else ridicules and boohoos because, like the cockroaches they are, they are thigmotropic, enjoying the closing in tight box of socialistic tyranny.

    That catholic societies such as "Opus Dei" and their connection to G7, etc. requires a lot of explanation. Or, all those college student societies, that become the "old boy" networks. Manipulations of the stock exchange, etc.

    Willard's prediction, unfortunately, has come true -- even Harvard itself has succombed and produces many of the cabal's enablers. Can anyone really ignore the reality any more?

    I hate secret societies, hunt them down and imprison them is what I say.

    Bilgerberger's, Council on Foreign Relations, Rothschilds, Rockefeller's, Warburg's, and a host of other's have had our government in their pockets for a long long time now. It's time to reclaim our White House and our way of life..and be forever diligent.
