In an earlier part of this series, I related that Thomas Jefferson was an apologist for Illuminati founder Adam Weishaupt, calling him in 1800 simply “an enthusiastic Philanthropist.” However, in Professor of Divinity David Tappan’s “A Discourse Delivered in The Chapel of Harvard College, June 19, 1798,” he explained that the Illuminati operated only “under the mask of universal philanthropy.”
Tappan further remarked: “But what connection had this German association with the Revolution and consequent measures of France? The answer is, the secret papers of the society prove that it had extended its branches into the latter country before the year 1786; that Mirabeau and Talleyrand, two distinguished agents in that revolution, were officers of a secret lodge at Paris in 1788; that during the sitting of the Notables in that year deputies were sent to France from the German Illuminati, at the request of this lodge, to aid in the projected subversion of religion and government…. The German agents, on their arrival, persuaded lodges to form a political committee, whose object should be to devise the best means for a general revolution. From these committees arose the famous Jacobin Club, whose primary aim was to revolutionize not only France, but, if possible, the world.” Tappan then explained that “The supposition of some deep and extensive a conspiracy against government and religion… easily accounts for… certain newspapers and other productions… which aim or direfully tend to undermine the religious and moral, as well as civil institutions, principles and habits of our country….”
Earlier in this series, I described the connections between the Illuminati and Yale University’s secret society Skull & Bones (to which both presidents Bush belonged) founded in 1832. On the front page of the National Research Institute’s Trumpet (October 1988), one reads: “Toward the end of the ceremony of initiation into the ‘Regents Degree of Illuminism,’ according to a tract, ‘A skeleton is pointed out to him (the initiate), at the feet of which are laid a crown and a sword. He is asked whether that is the skeleton of a king, a nobleman, or a beggar.’”
According to Ron Rosenbaum in his article, “Last Secrets of Skull and Bones” (Esquire, September 1977), this statement is quite similar to the words (in German), “Who was the fool, who was the wise man, beggar, or king? Whether poor or rich, all’s the same in death,” which appears above a painting of skulls in room 322 of Skull & Bones.
Nine years after Skull & Bones was founded, President Franklin Roosevelt ancestor and New York assemblyman Clinton Roosevelt (CR) authored The Science of Government Founded in Natural Law (1841). CR, like New York governor DeWitt Clinton, was reportedly a member of the Columbian Lodge of the Order of the Illuminati. And similar to Weishaupt’s philosophy, in CR’s book the Assemblyman wrote: “There is no God of justice to order things aright on earth; if there be a God, he is a malicious and vengeful being, who created us for misery.” CR referred to other members of his “order” as “the enlightened ones” (the Illuminees).
Given the horrible reputation of the Illuminati, one might wonder why George W. Bush in his 2000 A.D. presidential campaign would have Illuminati Online as his campaign’s webserver. This was after the president of Illuminati Online (IOCOM), Steve Jackson, developed a card game in 1994 called “Illuminati: New World Order” with a supplement called “Assassins” (see www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1753.cfm). One of the cards in the card game shows one of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City being hit by a terrorist attack, and another card shows the Pentagon partly in flames from an attack.
One of the first major pieces of legislation George W. Bush supported was the “No Child Left Behind Act of 2001,” which placed the Center for Civic Education (CCE) in charge of developing civic education for all of America’s schools. CCE viewed its role as “to improve our curricular frameworks and standards for a world transformed by globally accepted and internationally transcendent principles.” In that regard, CCE’s textbook, We the People, on page 202 states: “The culture we live in is becoming cosmopolitan, that is, belonging to the whole world.”
The use of the word, “cosmopolitan,” is of special interest because in ex-Illuminatus Ernst von Gochhausen’s novel Exposure of the Cosmopolitan System: In Letters From ex-Freemasons (1786), one reads: “The hero asked his superior very frankly, ‘What purposes do the Illuminati have in infiltrating and now dominating Masonry?’ The reply was blunt and simple: ‘To emancipate all of mankind from religious and political slavery. Put specifically, to advance deism and cosmopolitanism.’… World citizenship. What does it mean? You are either a citizen [of the world] or you are a rebel. There is no third choice.”
This is the future the Illuminati and Power Elite have planned for us. In Berlin on July 24, 2008 Presidential candidate Barack Obama not only said he was a “proud citizen of the United States,” but also a “fellow citizen of the world.” The word “citizen” as opposed to “resident” or “inhabitant” has legal implications. And if there is a conflict between national citizenship and world citizenship, guess which one takes precedence? It would be world citizenship just like in the U.S. it is federal law that takes precedence over state law.

On the night of January 15, 2011 Miss Hawaii in the Miss America Pageant was the first finalist to be asked a question by the judges. She was asked whether she considered herself first a citizen of her state, of the country, or of the world. Predictably, she replied that she considered herself first a “citizen of the world.” Evidently, this is more important to her than being a citizen of the United States. And earlier the same day that she made her declaration, the American radio broadcast of Duke University’s basketball game was in Mandarin Chinese, a first in sports broadcast history and, no doubt, completely acceptable for those conditioned to be “citizens of the world.”
