Conspiracy Too Monstrous To Conceive

Essay by Henry Makow Ph.D.  – Originally published June 8, 2003.  Website:

“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” J. Edgar Hoover

The world is in the malignant grip of a satanic cult.

People recoil at the suggestion but proof stares us in the face every day.

George W. Bush, President of the “Free World” is a member of “Skull and Bones” a chapter of the Illuminati order. His father, grandfather and uncle are also members.

In his autobiography, “A Charge to Keep” Bush writes, “My senior year I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society so secret I can’t say anything more.” In Aug. 2000 he said his “heritage is part of who I am.”

Isn’t this a conflict of interest?

Hello! Can a man hold any public office, let alone the most important, and belong to a “secret society”? If this society were benign, would it have to be secret?

What a secret society it is! The Illuminati is the hidden hand behind all modern cataclysms, including the French and Russian Revolutions, Communism, the Depression and Nazism. To affect the course of history only takes money. The people behind the Illuminati have plenty.

It’s time we faced reality. Murphy’s Law applies to humanity. “If it can go wrong, it will.”

It has. The world is ruled by a satanic cult.


The Illuminati originates in the Jewish Kabala, Babylonian mystery cults, the Templars, Freemasons and assorted interests dedicated to Satan worship and absolute power. On May 1 1776, Adam Weishaupt, a professor at the University of Inglestadt in Germany, founded “The Order of the Illuminati.” Many people believe Weishaupt was sponsored by Prince William of Hesse Casel and his banker Meyer Amschel Rothschild, the wealthiest man in the world.

The Illuminati’s goal was to destroy Western Civilization and to erect a new world order ruled by them. Its method was to dissolve all social ties (employer, nation, religion, race, family) by exploiting social discontent and promising a golden age of “human brotherhood.” This is now called “globalization.”

Attracted by the promise of power and change, people served without realizing who or what they were supporting. Weishaupt urged his followers to “practise the art of counterfeit.” New recruits were told the Illuminati expressed the original spirit of Christianity. Weishaupt marvelled that even churchmen could be gulled. “Oh! Men, of what cannot you be persuaded?” (Nesta Webster, World Revolution, 1921, p. 27)

The Illuminati had a hand in every so-called “progressive” movement of the past 200 years. Women, said Weishaupt, were to be enlisted with “hints of emancipation.” They “can all be led toward change by vanity, curiosity, sensuality and inclination.” (Webster, 29)

William Huntington, an American who had studied in Germany, founded the “Skull and Bones” (Chapter 322 of the Bavarian Illuminati) at Yale University in 1832. The members wore a death’s head on their chests and were sworn to secrecy on pain of death. “The Order” became the preserve of the leading New England families, many wealthy from the Opium trade. These include the Whitneys, Tafts, Buckleys, Lowells, Sloans, Coffins, and Harrimans. The Bush family was dependent on these interests.

For over 150 years, “Bonesmen” have run the world from positions in banking, intelligence, media, law and government. Members included Presidential handler Averell Harriman, anti war leader William Sloan Coffin, Time-Life magnate Henry Luce, Truman war secretary Henry Stimson (responsible for dropping the atomic bomb), pseudo conservative William F. Buckley and many more.


In the 1960’s British-born Dr. Anthony Sutton was a Fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institute when he discovered that, in spite of the Cold War, the US was supplying the USSR with its technology, including weapons used against American soldiers in Vietnam. Sutton dug deeper and discovered that Wall Street had sponsored both the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise of Nazi Germany. The resulting books which are on line cost Dr. Sutton his academic career.

In 1983, Dr. Sutton received a list of Skull and Bones members and immediately recognized the names of many men who controlled American policy. He published a book entitled “America’s Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones” (1986). He updated and republished this book just before his death last June at age 77. Here are some of his conclusions.

  • “The Order” is ” a purely American phenomenon with German origin.” Dr. Sutton compares it to the Round Table, Cecil Rhodes’ secret society at Oxford also known as “The Group.” The American and British entities consist of 20-30 dynastic families each. Jewish banking interests connect them.

“The links between ‘The Order’ and Britain go through Lazard Freres and the private merchant banks… ‘The Group’ links to the Jewish equivalent through the Rothschilds in Britain… ‘The Order’ in the US links to the Guggenheim, Schiff and Warburg families.” (23)

As Dr. Sutton notes, the “Order” had definite anti Semitic tendencies but by the 1960’s, many Jewish names started to appear among the 15 annual inductees. See list of Skull and Bones members.

  • Dr. Sutton believes the “left” versus “right” split is fraudulent and used to control the debate and condition citizens to think along certain lines. Left-wing magazines like the “The Nation” and “The New Republic” and right-wing magazines like “The National Review were “artificially set up.” The former were financed by Whitney money while the latter by Buckley. Both are “The Order.”

Dr. Sutton states: “Sooner or later people will wake up. First we have to dump the trap of right and left. This is a Hegelian trap to divide and control. The battle is not between right and left; it is between us and them.”

Similarly, in the international field left and right political structures are artificially constructed and collapsed in the drive for one-world synthesis, i.e. authoritarian socialism controlled by monopoly capital.

College textbooks present war and revolution as accidental results of conflicting forces. This is nonsense, says Dr. Sutton. They are created and financed by Wall Street to create a new world order. But you won’t read this in history books.

“Our Western history is every bit as distorted, censored and largely useless as that of Hitler’s Germany or the Soviet Union or Communist China…” (122)

  • Dr. Sutton believes The Order has many weaknesses resulting from an inbred gene pool, a shallow power base and a limited worldview. In any future conflict between the authoritarian state and the individual, he believes opposition will take “a million forms.”

” No one is going to create the anti-The Order movement. That would be foolish and unnecessary. It could be infiltrated, bought off, or diverted all too easily. Why play by the rules set by the enemy?

The movement that will topple The Order will be extremely simple and most effective. It will be ten thousand or a million Americans who come to the conclusion that they don’t want the State to be boss, that they prefer to live under the protection of the Constitution. They will make their own independent decision to thwart The Order and it will take ten thousand or a million forms.” (55)


Bizarre as it sounds, our world is the product of a multi generational satanic conspiracy.
(Believe me I would give everything I own to be wrong.)

When we compare this disturbing conclusion with the comforting picture purveyed by Illuminati controlled-mass media and education, we experience “cognitive dissonance,” or psychological stress. This is usually resolved by evading reality, dismissing it as “conspiracy theory.”

One reader, stirring in his sleep, wrote: “You sir are T-TOTALLY the biggest story teller I have ever heard. If I ever get really bored I will read some of your concockions.”

In fact, conspiracy is very plausible. People who control a grossly disproportionate share of the world’s wealth will take measures to consolidate their position. They will destabilize the public by inciting a series of wars and other mind-boggling hoaxes (communism, lesbian feminism, multiculturalism). They will subvert faith in a loving God and promote violence and depravity (Satan) instead.

The government-inspired 9-11 atrocity proves a satanic cult controls the US. Bush and his accomplices are criminals, traitors and impostors. But don’t look to the Democrats for salvation. Leading contender Sen. John Kerry is also Skull and Bones (Class of 1966.)

The “War on Terror” is obviously designed to forestall domestic opposition and condition people to further subjugation and new world order. What can we do?

Antony Sutton had it right when he said opposition should be individual in character. It should “take ten thousand or a million forms.”

    I watch people go on with their everyday lives with an awarness that they dont understand. Better yet they refuse to understand. You’re crazy, is what they would say to me whenever an intelectual conversation is presented about religion and politics. I try to give them my take or view on this whole mix- up that the entire human race is in and the only thing that happens is that conversation gets dismissed.Its like the matrix, not everybody wants to be unplugged from the system and they will do anything to keep people like me and you from fucking that up.All my life Ive been wondering and constantly beating my brain about religion and the order of society. CONSTANTLY IN SEARCH OF THE TRUTH…….. I realized a long time ago that I am not in controll of my own life. The movie zeitgeist just confirmed my suspicion about everything you covered in the documentary. I try to explain or even show this movie to people I know but only a few and I literally mean 1 or 2 people can open their minds or even comprehend what is really going on. Im almost in tears because there is NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT. I am forever in bondage and there is no escape.

    I know exactly what this is. See how it has impacted real lives. Start with the exposure of my former in_laws. I am trying to help my children. Please help.

    Hello locstakane,

    I completely understand how overwhelming this material can be. Once a person starts to wake-up and recognize the matrix of lies that shape and controls society, it can be depressing.

    I will say this, whether someone believes in the occult or not, the agents of evil in this world are men; and men are NOT infallible!

    I do believe hard times lie ahead, I do believe that there will be a lot of suffering. It seems almost impossible to escape the money, power, and influence these Illuminati families wield, and yet……and yet…..I feel they went too far with 9/11. They did not mean to “wake-up” so many people and have the people scrutinize and question and doubt; and yet that is what has happened.

    Most of these Globalist NWO Masters like David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger are old men, they have been completely blind-sided by the power of the Internet. They think their old tricks of having the New York Times or Washington Post or “kindly” Walter Cronkite deliver their message to an unquestioning audience will still work.

    Instead, the old media is dying and the power of tiny little blogs like this one, even if we only wake up a few people, becomes exponential as those people try to wake up others in their social circle. The truth begins to spread like a helpful virus!

    Multi-media tools like You Tube, and podcasting also helps to spread the truth.

    I would say: do not become discouraged. Wake-up those who want to be woken up, and smile and move on when you come across those that don’t. The hardest thing for me to accept was that some people simply do NOT want to know the truth. They do NOT want to change their world view. They prefer to believe “the happy lie.” YOU CANNOT HELP THOSE PEOPLE!

    But there *are* people out there that know something is wrong, but they are not sure what. Their egos are strong enough to handle the truth, and more importantly, THEY WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH! If you can present the information of 9/11 or the Council on Foreign Relations or Bohemian Grove, etc. in a factual and cogent manner – if you free even one person from the lies of the matrix – then YOU have helped to defeat the Satanic cult that Rules the World a.k.a “The New World Order.”

    I was never what you would call a “religious” person before my awakening, but unintentionally, learning about these esoteric, evil and occultic systems has made me more spiritual. I recognize Biblical wisdom now that before I was blind to. And the Bible clearly tells us there will be a battle between Good & Evil on this earth and that Good prevails.

    But it ain’t gonna be easy! Keep the faith and do what you can. As Alex Jones frequently says: “Action is ours, the consequences belong to God!”

    My other comment is for “eveknowsthetruth” – I watched the You Tube video you posted. You definitely come across as sincere. I am familiar with MK Ultra and some of the other dirty schemes the CIA has been involved with; those programs are well documented and nobody should doubt you about that. I would just like to offer one bit of constructive criticism, I think your story needs to be “bullet-pointed” and very succinctly stated, and then refer people to additional videos if they want more details. It sounds like you have an interesting story to tell, but you start diving into details that someone unfamiliar with your personal involvement finds hard to follow. I am just trying to be helpful.
