The Albert Pike Monument
Albert Pike made his mark before the war in
Arkansas as a lawyer and writer, but as a Confederate Brigadier
General, he was, according to the Arkansas Democrat of July 31, 1978, a complete "WASH-OUT,"
not a hero. Yet, Gen. Albert Pike is the only Confederate general with a statue on federal property in Washington, DC.
He was honoured, not as a commander or even as a lawyer, but as Southern regional leader of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
The statue stands on a pedestal near the foot of Capitol Hill, between the Department of Labor building and the Municipal Building, between 3rd and 4th Streets, on D Street, NW. More detail about the monument, including a photo and map can be found here. Further background on the colorful history of the statue can be found at the Masonic
Info website. During the 1992 presidential campaign, Lyndon H. LaRouche and his vice presidential running mate, the Reverend
James Bevel, launched a mobilization to remove the statue of General Albert Pike from Washington, D.C.'s Judiciary Square. On February 1, the campaign drew an angry attack from freemasonic leader
C. Fred Kleinknecht, who attempted to defend both Pike and the Ku Klux Klan from LaRouche and Bevel's attack. A speech
given by LaRouche defending his actions can be found here (March 20, 1992). And a speech by Anton Chaitkin entitled 'Why Albert Pike's Statue Must Fall' can be found here (September 21, 1992).
The Illuminati and
Adam Weishaupt (1748 - 1811) formed the Order
of Perfectibilists on May 1, 1776 (to this day celebrated as May Day throughout many western countries), which later became known as the Illuminati,
a secret society whose name means "Enlightened Ones". Although the Order was founded to provide an opportunity for the
free exchange of ideas, Weishaupt's background as a Jesuit seems to have influenced the actual character of the society, such
that the express aim of this Order became to abolish Christianity, and overturn all civil government.
An Italian revolutionary leader, Giusseppe Mazzini
(1805-1872), a 33rd degree Mason, was selected by the Illuminati to head their worldwide operations in 1834. (Mazzini
also founded the Mafia in 1860). Because of Mazzini's revolutionary activities in Europe, the Bavarian government cracked down on the Illuminati and other secret societies for allegedly
plotting a massive overthrow of Europe's monarchies. As the secrets of the Illuminati
were revealed, they were persecuted and eventually disbanded, only to re-establish themselves in the depths of other organizations,
of which Freemasonry was one.
During his leadership, Mazzini enticed Albert
Pike into the (now formally disbanded, but still operating) Illuminati. Pike was fascinated by the idea of a one world government,
and when asked by Mazzini, readily agreed to write a ritual tome that guided the transition from average high-ranking mason
into a top-ranking Illuminati mason (33rd degree). Since Mazzini also wanted Pike to head the Illuminati's American chapter,
he clearly felt Pike was worthy of such a task. Mazzini's intention was that once a mason had made his way up the Freemason
ladder and proven himself worthy, the highest ranking members would offer membership to the secret 'society within a society'.
It is for this reason that most Freemasons vehemently
deny the evil intentions of their fraternity. Since the vast majority never reach the 30th degree, they would not be
aware of the real purpose behind Masonry. When instructing Pike how the tome should be developed, Mazzini wrote the
following to Pike in a letter dated January 22, 1870. Remember that Freemasonry wasn't started by Pike - rather it was infiltrated
by the Illuminati who were looking for a respectable forum in which to hide their clandestine activities:
"We must allow all the federations to continue
just as they are, with their systems, their central authorities and their diverse modes of correspondence between high grades
of the same rite, organized as they are at the present, but we must create a super rite, which will remain unknown, to which
we will call those Masons of high degree whom we shall select. With regard to our brothers in Masonry, these men must be pledges
to the strictest secrecy. Through this supreme rite, we will govern all Freemasonry which will become the one international
center, the more powerful because its direction will be unknown." 1
In 1871, Pike published the 861 page Masonic
handbook known as the Morals
and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
After Mazzini's death on March 11, 1872, Pike appointed Adriano Lemmi (1822-1896, 33rd degree
Mason), a banker from Florence, Italy, to run their subversive activities in Europe. Lemmi was a supporter of patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, and may have been active
in the Luciferian Society founded by Pike. Lemmi, in turn, was succeeded by Lenin and Trotsky, then by Stalin. The revolutionary
activities of all these men were financed by British, French, German, and American international bankers; all of them dominated
by the House of Rothschild.
Between 1859 and 1871, Pike worked out a military blueprint for three world wars and various
revolutions throughout the world which he considered would forward the conspiracy to its final stage in the 20th Century.
In addition to the Supreme Council in Charleston,
South Carolina, Pike established Supreme Councils in Rome, Italy (led by Mazzini); London, England (led by Palmerston); and
Berlin, Germany (led by Bismarck). He set up 23 subordinate councils in strategic places throughout the world, including five
Grand Central Directories in Washington, DC (North America),
Montevideo (South America), Naples (Europe), Calcutta (Asia), and Mauritius (Africa), which were used to gather information. All of these branches have been the secret headquarters for the
Illuminati's activities ever since.

Library of the Supreme Council 33° of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, S.J., U.S.A., the Mother Supreme Council of the World, Washington D.C., is dedicated to none other than Confederate General Albert Pike, the KKK's
Chief of "Judiciary".
He has lived.
The fruits of his labors live after him. - Albert Pike, 33°
dedicated to Albert Pike are mounted in bronze near the impressive, leather-covered doors leading into the Library of The
Supreme Council, 33°. They are an appropriate greeting to the user of the Library since today The Supreme Council's Library
continues Pike's lifework and Freemasonry's mission.
Pike, who admitted
to being "capricious in my reading," was an avid collector of books. In his Little Rock, Arkansas, home one of the most impressive rooms was the library, and Pike kept an extensive
collection of books at his Arkansas mountain cabin retreat where he wrote the first drafts of what was to become Morals and Dogma.
what he could of these books during the turmoil of the Civil War and its aftermath, and when he moved to the nation's capital
area, he built on these collections, first in his home in Alexandria, Virginia, and then in the first House of the Temple
at Third and D Streets, NW, in Washington, DC. his death, he willed all his books to The Supreme Council, 33, under the provision
that they be made available to the general public at no charge. Thus in 1891, the House of the Temple Library became, in effect, the first "public library" in the District of Columbia.
of these books from Pike's personal collection form the nucleus of the Library of The Supreme Council at the present House
of the Temple at 1733 Sixteenth Street, NW, and they are still available for use, free of any charge, by the general public
as well as, of course, the Brethren. One of the thrills of conducting research in the Library is, unexpectedly, to come across
a few words in Pike's own small, meticulous handwriting in some of the older books.
The above description
of Pikes importance to Freemasonry from the Supreme Council 33° shows the claims by Masonic Apologists today that Pike is
a "nobody" whose "importance is nothing to masonry", who "no one even knows who he is save for a few anti's" to be a real
whopper. Albert Pike is to Freemasonry what Shakespeare is to Drama. One is inseperable from the other. Don't let practiced
dissemblers tell you anything different.
of the most widely read occult books in the world; Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
This book is still given to Masons on being awarded the 32nd Degree.
Pike has been
termed by a number of well known Masonic authors as the Plato of Freemasonry, and even the Masonic Pope!
that is to say Organized Freemasonry practices the big lie technique. More to the point organized Freemasonry has perfected the big lie technique.
They term this doublespeak ' diverting the discourse'. In regard to Confederate general, slaver, British spy, convicted Confederate war criminal, Sovereign
Grand Commander of the Supreme Council 33rd Degree, Ku Klux Klan ritual designer, Ku Klux Klan Chief Judicial Officer and Arkansas Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon it is necessary
to add some superlatives on to the term 'divert the discourse', because that opaque term doesn't nearly come close to describing
the effort and tactics it has and is employing to cover-up, obscure, deflect, and divert about Pike's leading roll in the
us if we seem to go to some length to explain what exactly organized Freemasonry with all it's thousands of internet sites,
millions of members, and billions of net worth is doing in regard to the Albert Pike issue because one has to be very specific
when dealing with the masters of parsing. In fact it is likely the case that Freemasonry provided the initial instruction
to intelligence agencies on the most effective methods of using disinformation.
eliminate all "documents" - not that a oral secret society such as Freemasonry or the KKK keeps a paper trail. Then they say
no documents exist or none can be found. If there is any eyewitness testimony included in books or writings on the topic they
deny the books or writings exist, if that fails they attack the witnesses and try and destroy their character - even if they
were masons and thereby ignoring their oaths on the matter, and if that fails they attack the character of the authors themselves
- again if they also too were masons. Finally they will simply lie or mischaracterize the nature of a book or writing by terming
it 'anti' - even if the work was 'pro' but written in another time before the fall of the KKK.
The use of
the term "anti" is one of pure Orwellian rhetoric. All those who write critically of Freemasonry are anti's and all anti's
are frauds, liars, zealots, or extremists and cannot be accepted. Therefore there is no such thing as a legitimate work criticizing
Freemasonry because by it's very nature it must be 'anti' and organized Freemasonry will accept no references from 'anti's'
in any debate or discussion of Freemasonry. If per chance the writing was from a mason but was one that was meant not to come
out into the public view (in the jacket cover of most masonic books is typed that the books must be returned to the Lodge
if the owner dies), or if it was simply written in another time politically - such as the case with pro Ku Klux Klan books
that extoll the roll of Albert Pike in the KKK, the tact is to attack the authors. Even though at the time the books were
written Organized Freemasonry was more that happy to accept the kudos of the millions strong KKK on all the wonderful things
that Pike did for them.
may provide quote after quote from old masonic or KKK works and Freemasonry will not accept any of them because anyone who
would suggest such a thing today (the non-mason) would be doing so with the knowledge that it would be harmful to Freemasonry's
public image and standing, and anyone who would do that would obviously have to be an 'anti'. Of course nothing an "Anti"
says or writes is acceptable to a Mason. Logicians term this circular reasoning and furthermore classify circular reasoning
as a fallacy. A fallacy is equivalent to an mathematical error in logic or rhetoric, and it is disallowed. It is not a legitimate
debating method, it is in the same category as ad hominem personal attacks. Unfortunately with the Freemasons power it is
very difficult to compete with the deluge of misinformation they spew out repeating these illegitimate debating and reasoning
methods. In crude terms organized Freemasonry's most effective tactic is to "baffle them with bee's wax". Mountains of it.
If it will take a thousand websites or a hundered thousand usenet posts to bury the 'anti's' point (which they never respond
to without employing shabby cut and paste, deletion, or misquoting games) then that is what they will do. Masons term this
of the Supreme Council 33°, Washington
DC. A bust of Pike can be seen in the distance
on the landing of the Grand Staircase which leads up to the main temple room which all 33° Masons must file past. Pike is
buried in a secret crypt under the stairway, beneath the bust, the only Freemason to be given this "honor".
But what is
the purpose of this exercise? Masons who find themselves on the clear loosing end of a Pike match (it happens but they quickly
cancel the posts or pretend the verbal arguement never occured) will say "but even if you are right, so what it happened 150
years ago and has no bearing today, etc". Here is why it does very much matter. Pike wasn't just any Freemason he was the
head of the Supreme Council which has defacto control of the entire worldwide masonic movement. Therefore the Ku Klux Klan
was an official (albiet very secret) and planned masonic organization with political overtones that foreknowingly was set
up to engage in murder, arson, blackmail and other extra constitutional tactics to achieve the Scottish Rites political objectives.
The KKK and Freemasonry relationship thereby is as a seamless as could be. From it's inception through the open recruiting
of masons in newspapers to the KKK, to the use of masonic temples and halls for KKK meetings, to the rituals, rites, and occult
themes, to the high degree masonic membership of the leadership of the old and new klans. Even the present cover-up can be
seen to be part of Organized Freemasonry's continued involvement with reactionary politics. They have never stopped, they have never given up. Many have speculated on what happened to the millions
of KKK Members that were on the rolls up to the KKK's final downfall at the hands of the IRS in the 40's. We now know. They simply carried on inside the
masonic lodges as if nothing had changed at all. And what really had changed? In most regions of the country the local KKK
Klavern's membership was indistinguishable from the local 'Blue' masonic lodges membership.
After all the
KKK had openly advertised in newspapers for new recruits specifiying that masons were preferred! The only change was the sheets
were stowed away, but the political goals and willingness and capability to follow through on them carried on. The letter
that the head of the Supreme Council wrote about a Roman Catholic president in 1960 in the official organ of the Scottish
Rite - 'New Age' magazine, and the continuing practically non-existant black membership in the 'blue' lodges, plus the non-recognition
as 'regular' of black only Prince Hall lodges testify's boldly to that.
folding was a complete sham. That is why the desperate defense of Albert Pike. They're still at it, they never went away.
Here then gentle,
patient readers are the references which prove that the Illustrious Albert Pike was part of the KKK, and that the KKK and
Freemasonry were intrinsically linked.
Klan: Its Origin, Growth, and Disbandment
It was in 1905
that the Neale Publishing Company, New York and Washington, published Ku Klux Klan: Its Origin, Growth and Disbandment, written and edited by Walter L.
Fleming, incorporating earlier published material by J.C. Lester and D.L. Wilson. Historian Walter Fleming's introduction
to this 1905 book explains that he has been given "information in regard to Ku Klux Klan, by many former members of the order,
and by their friends and relatives." Dr. Fleming states that "General Albert Pike, who stood high in the Masonic order, was
the chief judicial officer of the Klan." On a page of illustrations of important founders of the KKK, Dr. Fleming places General
Pike's portrait in the center, makes it larger than the six others on the page, and repeats this information as a caption:
"General Albert Pike, chief judicial officer". Dr. Fleming attaches as an appendix to his book, a KKK "prescript" or secret
constitution which had then recently been discovered. This document sets forth the regulations of the Klan's "judiciary"'
department, over which Albert Pike ruled. This is the internal disciplinary or counterintelligence department. It also corresponds
to Pike and the Klan's influence over the regular court system and the legal profession in the post-civil War southern states.
As the boss
of all the southern secret societies and simultaneously president of the Tennessee Bar Association, Pike was the grand strategist
of Klan "justice." It is to be stressed that Walter Fleming's book was not a slander or hatchet job against Albert Pike. Though
it revealed much important data for the first time, it placed the KKK and Pike in the most favorable possible light. The book
was a hit among diehard Confederates and Anglo-Saxon "race patriots," and it launched Fleming's career as the dean of southern
historians. Fleming became the leading apologist for the KKK, and was the father of the modern historical line that Reconstruction
was a corrupt oppression of the South. In September 1903, Fleming had written in the Journal of the Southern History Association:
"The very need for such an organization in the disordered conditions of the time caused the Dens [KKK local units] to begin
to exercise the duties of a police patrol for regulating the conduct of thieving and impudent negroes and similar "loyal'
whites...." Dr. Fleming's biases have not hurt his reputation with established authorities. The National Cyclopedia of American
Biography calls his 1905 Ku Klux Klan history "an authoritative account of that organization." The Dictionary of American
Biography states bluntly: "Fleming covered the Civil War and Reconstruction in the South more fully than any other man. His
works are characterized by ... scholarly objective. A Southerner, Fleming wrote of the sectional conflict with Southern sympathies
yet he was more objective than most Southerners of his generation. The historiography of the Civil War and Reconstruction
owes much to his indefatigable research, his breadth of scholarship, and power of interpretation." Basing his career on his
defense of Pike's KKK, Fleming became dean of arts and sciences at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
Pike's Tennessee Klan Command
It was in Nashville that Albert Pike and other Confederate
generals met in 1867 to form a southern states-wide terrorist KKK, expanding the little project they had started two years
before in Pulaski, Tenn. The organization he formed in Nashville designated Pike its chief judiciary officer,
and its Grand Dragon for Arkansas.
of the Memphis, Tennessee, Daily Appeal, Albert Pike wrote in an editorial on April 16, 1868:
"With negroes for witnesses and jurors, the administration of justice becomes a blasphemous mockery.
A Loyal League of negroes can cause any white man to be arrested, and can prove any charges it chooses to have made against
him. ...The disenfranchised people of the South ... can find no protection for property, liberty or life, except in secret
association.... We would unite every white
man in the South, who is opposed to negro suffrage, into one great Order of Southern Brotherhood, with an organization complete,
active, vigorous, in which a few should execute the concentrated will of all, and whose very existence should be concealed
from all but its members."
(A copy of
that issue of Pike's paper may be viewed at the Library of Congress, as may the books mentioned in this article.)
Left: The Albert
Pike Memorial Room inside the Supreme Council 33° Temple, which itself is located 13 blocks directly north of the White House in Washington D.C..
But it was
as the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, and the recognized boss of the southern white masonic order, that Pike
exercised the great clandestine power that welded the KKK together. Dr. Walter Fleming designates Confederate Major James
R. Crowe as the pre-eminent source for his 1905 KKK History, and describes Crowe as one of the original KKK founders in Pulaski.
Fleming says that Major Crowe "held high rank in the Masonic order." In his honor roll of "well-known members of the Klan,"
Dr. Fleming places "General John C. Brown, of Pulaski, Tennessee" and "Colonel Joseph Fussell, of Columbia, Tennessee."
and Colonel Fussell, like Major Crowe, are identifiable as soldiers of Albert Pike's masonic order. General Brown had been
a master mason in the Pulaski lodge for 15 years when the KKK was formed there, and became grand master of Tennessee Masons
and governor of Tennessee during the Klan's era of power. Colonel Fussell was commandant of Tennessee's masonic Knights Templar during the Klan rule. The preceding
masonic information is taken from Tennessee Templars: A Register of Names with Biographical Sketches of the Knights Templar
of Tennessee by James D. Richardson. This James D. Richardson was himself the Commandant of Knights Templar and Grand Master
of Masons in Tennessee, and was speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives during the era of the Klan power. This same James D. Richardson
was Albert Pike's successor as commander of the southern Scottish Rite masons. It was this same Richardson who ordered the
Pike statue to be erected in Washington,
D.C. It was Richardson who, as a U.S. congressman from Tennessee, introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives
the infamous 1898 resolution: It called for the federal government to provide federal land to Richardson's masonic organization, on which to put
up their statue honoring the master strategist of KKK terror.
Davis's 1924 Authentic History, Ku Klux Klan, 1865-1877, repeats the pattern Fleming created in 1905, revealing Pike's KKK
role but treating him and the Klan sympathetically. The Davis book was written to celebrate the new, 20th-century KKK, which was just then
staging full-dress mass marches in Washington and northern cities such as Detroit. In her chapter on General Pike's leadership of the Klan, Miss Davis applauds
Pike's clever stewardship of the KKK secret organization. She reproduces in her KKK history an oil portrait of Albert Pike
given to her for the KKK book by Pike's son.
The same is
true of other book-length histories of the Klan and numerous published biographies of Albert Pike: Pike's role as Klan leader
or KKK boss of Arkansas is discussed, but treated as if KKK terrorist murder of African-Americans was "regrettable" but "only natural" and
"understandable." In his book, The Tragic Era, Claude Bowers, who served many years as the U.S. ambassador to Spain and to Chile, described Albert Pike as one of the handful
of distinguished, respectable founders of the KKK and the Klan's leader in Arkansas.
the KKK as patriotic southerners defending their way of life from out-of-control blacks and northerners.
that much of the KKK's alleged violence was actually perpetrated by Negroes disguised in Klan robes to wreak vengeance on
Southern gentlemen were later cited as state leaders of the Invisible Empire. Alabama claimed General John T. Morgan as Grand Dragon. Arkansas was headed by General Albert Pike, explorer
and poet. North
was led by former governor Zebulon Vance, and Georgia by General John B. Gordon, later a U.S. Senator."

also wrote extensively on the mythtical super-race of the Aryans, extolling their virtues, imagined history, and religion
which he tried to show was the precursor of Freemasonry in is numerous Published Works. It would seem that Pike was a fellow traveller with Blavatsky on this subject. Fifty years later in
Central Europe there will be others who will take up this mantle and use these writings as the basis for a ideology that curiously
enough will also use the term 'new world order' to describe it's agenda. Just a co-incidence of course.
and Evolution of Freemasonry
A further useful
quotation from Mr. Pike was also supplied by Mr. Bill Maddox, a Freemason on the Usenet group alt.freemasonry (and vigorously
attacked for doing so by the resident "e-m@sons").

obligations from white men, not from negroes. When I have to accept negroes as brothers or leave masonry, I shall leave it"

Views of General ALBERT PIKE, Sovereign Grand Commander, A. & A. Scottish Rite. ALEXANDRIA, Va., 13th September, 1875.
My DEAR FRIEND AND BROTHER.-I can see as plainly as that the negro question is going to make trouble.
Then plenty of regular negro Masons and negro lodges in South America and the West Indies, and our folks only stave of the
question by saying that negro Masons here are clandestine. Prince Hall Lodge was as regular a Lodge as any lodge created by
competent authority, and had a perfect right (as other lodges in Europe did) to establish other lodges, making itself a mother
Lodge. That's the way the Berlin lodges, Three Globes and Royal York, became Grand Lodges.
The Grand Orient of Hayti is
as regular as any other. So is the Grand Orient of the Dominican Republic, which, I dare say,
has negroes in it and negro lodges under it.
Again, if the negro lodges are not regular, they can easily get regularized.
If our Grand Lodges won't recognize negro lodges, they have the right to go elsewhere. The Grand Lodge can't say to eight
or more Masons, black or white, we will not give you a charter because you are negroes, or because you wish to work the Scottish
Rite, and you shall not go elsewhere to get one. That latter part is bosh.
Hamburg recognizes the Grand Lodges. Yes, and
so the German Grand Lodge Confederation is going to do, and so will the Grand Orient of France before long.
if negrophily continues to be the religion established by law of your States, there will be before long somewhere a beginning
of recognition of negro lodges. Then the Royal Arch and Templar bodies of negroes must be taken in, and Masonry go down to
their level. Will your plan work? I think not. I think there is no middle ground between rigid exclusion of negroes or recognition
and affiliation with the whole mass.
If they are not Masons, how protect them as such or at all ? If they are Masons,
how deny them affiliation or have two supreme powers in one jurisdiction.
I am not inclined to meddle in the matter.
I took my obligations to white men, not to
negroes. When I have to accept negroes as brothers or leave Masonry, I shall leave it.
I am interested
to keep the Ancient and Accepted Rite uncontaminated, in our country at least, by the leprosy of negro association. Our Supreme Council can defend its
jurisdiction, and it is the law-maker. There can not be a lawful body of that Rite in our jurisdiction unless it is created
I am not so sure but that, what with immensity of numbers, want of a purpose worth laboring for, general indifference
to obligations, pitiful charity and large expenses, fuss, feathers and fandango, big temples and large debts, Masonry is become
a great helpless, inert mass that will some day, before long, topple over, and go under. If you wish it should, I think you
can hasten the catastrophe by urging a protectorate of the negroes. Better let the thing drift. Apres noun le, deluge.

of the Golden Circle
Albert Pike organized and lead the African Slave Owning Cherokee Indians in the Oklahoma Territory who were part of the Masonic Knights of the Golden Circle, in their own secret society called the Keetowah. Under Pikes Generalship this Brigade raped, pillaged, and murdered civilian communities in the Oklahoma and Missori Territories. For these "good works" Brother Albert became a Convicted War Criminal in a
War Crimes Trial held after the Civil Wars end. Unfortunately the "Pope" and "Plato" of Freemasonry had to be tried in absentia
because he had fled to British
Territory in Canada. Second Generation British-American Pike
has also been alledged to have been working for the Crown as an agent and key civil war agitator. Pike only returned to the
U.S. after his hand picked Scottish Rite Succsessor
James Richardon 33° got a pardon for him after, making President Johnson a 33° Scottish Mason in a ceremony held inside the
White House itself! In fact given Mr. Pikes leadership roll in the Knights of the Golden Circle and the fact that the name
Ku Klux Klan is a version of Circle (Kluklos) it seems pretty clear to most researchers who was higher up the secret society
occult ladder and therefore more instrumental in the founding of the Klan - Mason/Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forest
