October 27: Anti-Masonic, Anti-Semitic, and Anti-Pagan Terrorism

This Sunday, October 27, 2019, marks anniversaries we should all be watching. Is there a group that is also watching, waiting, and ready to launch new violence against gatherings of people who have been targeted in the past? Will future objects of assaults be the symbols and souls of the individuals, instead of the people? Has there been a broadening of the approach? Will the attacks be against the buildings, which traditionally have been temples, halls, and architecture of the groups being struck?

Past 27ths

October 27, 1553, condemned as a heretic, Michael Servetus was burned at the stake just outside Geneva. He was a polymath versed in many sciences: mathematics, astronomy and meteorology, geography, human anatomy, medicine and pharmacology, as well as jurisprudence, translation, poetry and the scholarly study of the Bible in its original languages.

Servetus' family used a nickname, "Revés," according to an old tradition in rural Spain of using alternate names for families across generations. It seems more than coincidental that the "Reeves Name Game" has become synonymous in modern times with a deeper meaning of power and significance within Twilight Language and Synchromysticism discussions.

On October 27, 1907, fifteen people are killed in the Černová massacre in Hungary, when Hungarian gendarmes opened fire on a Slovak crowd gathered at a Roman Catholic church consecration.

On October 27, 1999, gunmen with ties to the Armenian Revolutionary Federation opened fire in the Armenian Parliament, assassinating the Prime Minister, the Parliament Speaker, and six others members of Parliament. They used Kalashnikov AK-47 rifles.

Recent events have reflected old but traditional targets:

One Year Ago ~ October 27, 2018

A year ago, on October 27, 2018, a mass shooting occurred at the Tree of Life – Or L'Simcha Congregation in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, while Shabbat morning services were being held. Eleven people were killed and seven (including the suspect) were injured. It was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the United States. Robert Gregory Bowers (born September 4, 1972), a 46-year-old resident of Baldwin, Pennsylvania, with a neo-Nazi and white supremacists, was arrested as the suspected shooter. Bowers was fascinated by Pittsburgh radio host Jim Quinn who has written exclusively about "Who is QAnon?"

One Lunar Cycle Ago ~ 

It was an exact lunar month ago, as Enki King has pointed out to me, that a remarkable conjunction of violent incidents focussed on New Hampshire. 

September 28, 2019 ~ America's Stonehenge

As Enki wrote, it was on September 28, 2019 (a New Moon), 
....when news broke of vandalism at Salem, New Hampshire's America's Stonehenge, a site Lovecraft is rumored to have visited...A stone known as the Sacrificial Table was engraved by the vandal(s) with the messages, "AWG1WGA," an initialism of the QAnon slogan, "As we go one, we go all," and "I AM MARK." The latter message may be short for "I am Mark Sargent," a flat earther meme. It would seem the individual or individuals behind this reprehensible act are simultaneously anti-globalist and anti-globe. Interestingly, QAnons refer to their opponents as "clowns."

Scott Wolter has quoted local New Hampshire law enforcement as believing the vandalism was likely inspired by the plot of the recently published novel, Treasure Templari. The book is subtitled "Templars, Nazis and the Holy Grail" and by David S. Brody. Part of the scenario played out in the book takes place at North Salem, New Hampshire, at America's Stonehenge. It is not coincidental that the vandalism takes place here. The individual behind this act and the next one may be loosely part of the QAnon followers, according to Scott Wolter.

September 28, 2019 ~ Northwood Masonic Lodge

A four-alarm fire destroyed the historic Masonic Lodge in Northwood, New Hampshire, on Saturday night, September 28, 2019. Emergency personnel were called to 158 1st N.H. Turnpike in Northwood at 9:24 p.m. for a reported building fire. Upon arrival, the Masonic Lodge was found to be heavily involved in fire.

This Masonic lodge was famed as the location where Civil War veterans met and shared battle stories. It was destroyed in the fire. Preservationists expressed hope that the Northwood's Masonic Lodge artifacts can be saved from rubble.

Masons and Jews

Yom Kippur is held on the 10th day of Tishrei, ten days after the start of Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). All Jewish holidays begin at sundown on the date listed. In 2019, Yom Kippur began at sundown on October 8, and the day of the solemn Jewish holy day falls on October 9. Yom Kippur means “Day of Atonement” in Hebrew. It is a day of fasting, prayer and repentance marking the end of the annual 10-day high holy days period beginning with Rosh Hashanah. Many Jews fast over the 24-hour period of Yom Kippur and then attend a celebratory feast.

Little known today, but early American Jewish members were welcome in Masonic Lodges.

While there had only been three degrees in Masonry, the Scottish Rite innovation initially introduced 25 degrees and would eventually have 33. This contrasted with the York Rite which retained the original three degrees, but had three distinct subsections that contained three or four additional degrees which could be obtained. While the York Rite would find great popularity in America, the Scottish Rite was very popular among Jews. These two groups were not exclusive to America, and were also seen in European Masonry but, for the purposes of the thesis, it is most important to understand the place of the Scottish Rite in America, since it was the type of Masonry with a distinct connection to American Jews. ~ Sara A. Zimmerman, "“Men of Honour and Honesty”: Connections Between Jews and Freemasons in Early America" March 19, 2014. University of Pennsylvania.

Freemasonry has been covert in its incorporation of several symbols of Judaism, including the Star of David/Seal of Solomon, King Solomon's Temple, and the appearance of Jewish Biblical figures as part of Masonic canon. 

One place that these Biblical figures commonly appear is in the names of various lodges. While there are certainly lodges names after Christian saints, particularly St. John, it is also common to see lodges named after King David and King Solomon. One example is King David's Lodge, originally in New York City and moved to Newport, Rhode Island....In addition to David and Solomon, another Old Testament figure that appears in Masonry is Noah. ~ Sara A. Zimmerman, op. cit.

In 1824, in celebration of America's 50th anniversary, President James Monroe and the U.S. Congress invited Revolutionary War hero, French Revolution hero, and important Mason the Marquis De La Fayette to visit and tour the United States. From August 15, 1824 through September 7, 1825, La Fayette visited many Freemason lodges and Jewish synagogues, laying cornerstones and consecrating the sites. The landscape of America is dotted with Lafayette-named locations as a direct result of the 1824-1825 tour. (See the "Fayette Factor.")

In other words, there is no great conspiracy to the reality behind the anti-Masonic and anti-Semitic attacks and fires that often seem totally unrelated. Their history overlaps, and those attacking, know this.

For 2019, we find...before Yom Kippur...

April 27, 2019 ~ Poway Synagogue

The Poway synagogue shooting occurred on April 27, 2019, when a gunman armed with an AR-15 style rifle fired shots inside the Chabad of Poway synagogue in Poway, California, a city approximately 20 miles (32 km) north of San Diego. The attack took place on the last day of the Jewish Passover holiday, which fell on a Shabbat. One woman was killed and three other people were injured, including the synagogue's rabbi. After fleeing the scene, the alleged gunman phoned 9-1-1 and reported the shooting. He was apprehended in his car approximately two miles (3.2 km) from the synagogue by a San Diego police officer.

October 7, 2019 ~ Eve of Yom Kippur 

According to the Anti-Defamation League, anti-Semitic incidents go up around the Jewish holidays. The ADL said in the last three years the rate of incidents have gone up 48 percent nationwide and 110 percent in the Midwest.

Three incidents of anti-Semitic assaults occurring on the eve of Yom Kippur were found in various locations: Chicago's Northwest Side, Illinois; Garden of Remembrance, White Plains, New York; and Megansett Yacht Club, Falmouth, Massachusetts.

October 7, 2019 ~ Lincoln Masonic Temple, Aurora, Illinois

On the eve of Yom Kippur, someone decided to burn down this Masonic Temple ~ which happens to be in the "Name Game" city of Aurora ("red dawn"; see more here) and the temple is named "Lincoln" (see here).

The Jerusalem Temple Lodge #90 Masonic body was formed in Aurora, Illinois in October 1850, only 13 years after the city was founded. The first Worshipful Master was Benjamin Franklin Hall, who later became the first mayor of Aurora in 1857. They first met in the Main Street Building until moving into a Masonic Hall on Fox Street in 1866. The order moved again in 1910 to Broadway Street.

Built in 1922, the Lincoln Masonic Temple was constructed when ten lodges decided to combine resources. 

Little is known about the architect, William Q. Bendus. The building was built in the Neo-classical style and may have been influenced by the Cleveland Museum of Art. The six-story Temple featured ionic columns. Masonic imagery adorned the tympanum. Two lodge rooms in the temple coud each seat over two hundred people.

The fire was reported by a bystander at 9:57 pm, Monday, October 7, 2019. The Temple received massive damage by the time the fire stopped on October 8, 2019. Investigators were unable to determine the cause of the fire at the former masonic temple at 104 S. Lincoln Ave, a site located atop a hill in a neighborhood on the city's near east side, not far from downtown. It will remain unsolved, as the site was almost immediately demolished. It is worthy of noting that the Town of Aurora took over ownership of the Masonic Temple, and they torn it down. Nevertheless, the building's columns were saved.

The Aurora fire resulted in a few tweets saying it was being torn down before any evidence could be uncovered, and this satirical one was also posted:

These events merged then with the action for...

October 8-9, 2019 ~ Yom Kippur 

October 8, 2019 ~ Prince Hall Masonic Temple, New York City

Police officers are still searching for a man who threw a Molotov cocktail at a historic Masonic Hall on Yom Kippur. The NYPD released video showing the moment the Molotov cocktail is thrown at the building October 8, 2019, about 11:45 p.m.. The man tossed the device on West 24th Street near Sixth Avenue that night, police said. Cops are still searching for an arsonist who sparked a fire at the historic Masonic Hall, according to the NYPD. ~ Source

October 8, 2019 ~ Park Slope Jewish Synagogue, Brooklyn, New York

Someone set fire to a backpack and left it on the steps of a Brooklyn Jewish center early Wednesday — on the Yom Kippur high holy day. Officers from the 78th Precinct responded and saw the backpack burning on the front steps on the 8th Avenue side of the Park Slope Jewish Center around 1 a.m. Sources 1, 2.

October 9, 2019 ~ Halle Cemetery Gate and Synagogue 

The Halle synagogue shooting was a far-right attack that occurred on October 9, 2019 in Halle, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, continuing in nearby Landsberg. After unsuccessfully trying to enter the synagogue in Halle during the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, the attacker killed two people nearby and later injured two others.

The attack started around noon on the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur at the synagogue in the Paulusviertel neighborhood of Halle. The suspect live-streamed himself trying, but failing, to enter the synagogue.

A 27-year-old German from Saxony-Anhalt, Stephan Balliet, is in custody charged with two counts of murder and seven counts of attempted murder. (See more here.)

Federal investigators said that the suspect had "almost certainly a far-right motivation for the crime". Comparisons were drawn between the Christchurch, New Zealand, mosque shootings (15 March 2019, 51 killed), where the suspected shooter Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old Australian, livestreamed his attacks on Facebook for 17 minutes.

In the evening, Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer said it was "at least" an antisemitic attack.

October 15, 2019 ~ The Minister's Treehouse, Crossville, Tennessee

The Minister's Treehouse — reportedly the largest treehouse in the world — burned to the ground after a raging fire, begun at 10:30 PM, on October 15, 2019. The Minister's Treehouse was an iconic landmark in Crossville, Tennessee. It was built by Horace Burgess, an architect-turned-pastor who said he was inspired by a vision from God. It stood nearly 100 feet tall and had 10 stories that spread across seven trees, complete with balconies and staircases. Sources 1, 2.

Enki King notes: "The treehouse was located in Crossville on Templar-resonating Beehive Lane, and was about seven miles, as the crow flies, from Stonehenge Golf Club."


Will Sunday October 27th, the New Moon of the 28th, and Samhain on the 31st bring forth acts of arsons, assaults, and assassinations? Will law enforcement units be deployed to protect temples, halls, and worshippers? Be aware and careful.

It may also be to the point that the anti-Semitic conspiracy theories of the 19th century started out as anti-Masonic conspiracy theories following the French Revoluion. The Wikipedia entry on Judeo-Masonic Conspiracy Theory states, "According to Danny Keren (a member of the Department of Computer Science at Haifa University), the 'conceptual inspiration' of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was the 1797 treatise, Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism by the French priest Augustin Barruel, which claimed the Revolution was a Masonic-led conspiracy with the aim of overthrowing the moral teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. According to Keren, 'in his treatise, Barruel did not himself blame the Jews, who were emancipated as a result of the Revolution. However, in 1806, Barruel circulated a forged letter, probably sent to him by members of the state police opposed to Napoleon Bonaparte's liberal policy toward the Jews, calling attention to the alleged part of the Jews in the conspiracy he had earlier attributed to the Masons. This myth of an international Jewish conspiracy reappeared later on in 19th century Europe in places such as Germany and Poland.'"

And that reminds me of the latter-day conspiracy theorist and intellectual descendant of Barruel who recently declaimed, "I will not dwell on all the bitter results of the new secular age. Suffice it to say that the campaign to destroy the traditional moral order has brought with it immense suffering, wreckage, and misery. And yet, the forces of secularism, ignoring these tragic results, press on with even greater militancy."

I don't know if we can expect to see any incidents of anti-Masonic/anti-Semitic terrorism tomorrow. But he kind of craziness that fosters them is more widespread at the moment than at any recent time.

Among the notable people from Crossville, according to the Wikipedia page, are a stand up comedian named Billy Wayne Davis (notice his middle name) and actress Marjorie Weaver. Her most famous part was probably as young Mary Todd in Young Mr. Lincoln. (Mrs Lincoln's sanity is often questioned.) But she had roles in several films revolving around death---three with Murder in the title, one with Die, one with Mystery, one with Detective, one with Shooting, and one with Suspicion, plus others. Rather strange coincidence---or not.
