Masons under anti-terror surveillance after UDA
  infiltrates Scottish lodges
By Neil Mackay = Sunday Herald - 02 July 2006
MASONIC halls throughout Scotland are under covert surveillance by anti-terror
police after the outlawed loyalist paramilitary group, the Ulster Defence
Association (UDA) successfully infiltrated the controversial secret society.
David Begg, the grand secretary of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, told the
Sunday Herald that Freemasons have been advised by police that lodges throughout
the country ? particularly in the west of Scotland ? are under
surveillance by officers targeting the UDA. One Fife lodge has been penetrated
by loyalist terrorists who used the premises for fund-raising and operational
planning. For more than 18 months, UDA member Steven Moffat used the St Kenneth
Lodge in Kennoway as a cover for loyalist paramilitary activity.
The UDA is one of Ulster?s most brutal paramilitary organisations. Using
the cover-name the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) it waged a campaign of sectarian
assassination against Northern Ireland?s Catholics. One of its most
notorious ?brigadiers?, Johnny ?Mad Dog? Adair, fled
to Ayrshire after his expulsion from Belfast following an internecine loyalist
Moffat is serving five years in jail after being imprisoned by the High Court
in Edinburgh earlier this month under the Terrorism Act 2000 for membership
of a proscribed organisation and possession of firearms. 
He was found with a Browning 9mm automatic pistol and ammunition at his home.
Police also discovered flags, balaclavas and other paramilitary regalia,
including documents detailing the UDA?s initiation ceremonies.
Police and prosecutors believed the items ?were for the preparation
or instigation of an act of terrorism?. Moffat joined the UDA in Belfast
at least three years ago.
The Mason?s Fife and Kinross provincial grand master, David Wishart,
said Moffat had used the Masonic Lodge in Kennoway for UDA meetings for at
least 18 months. A member of the lodge who was also in the Orange Order had
arranged for Moffat and his loyalist associates to hold meetings in the Kennoway
lodge. Wishart insisted that no other members knew the true nature of
Moffat?s activities.
Once Moffat?s actions were discovered, the Mason and Orange Order member
who assisted him resigned after being threatened with expulsion from the
?I was horrified to find out that this had been going on,? said
Moffat, who was not a Freemason but often drank in the St Kenneth Lodge?s
bar, used the Kennoway Masonic Hall for two types of meetings. Firstly, regular
private ?strategy? meetings with Moffat and 10 other men occurred
over 18 months. The UDA members discussed their plans in a closed room while
lodge members drank at the Mason?s bar in the same building.
The second type of meeting was fund-raising events for loyalist causes in
Northern Ireland. Up to 70 people attended three fundraisers held at the
Masonic Hall over an 18-month period.
Wishart said: ?The UDA infiltrated and used us for their illegal purposes.
These people are very clever. We were trusting; they gained our confidence
and then we were manipulated.?
Kennoway Masonic Hall was closed for eight weeks for an internal Masonic
inquiry following police raids in the area in connection with Moffat?s
At the time of his arrest, Moffat was planning to hold an initiation ceremony
for Scottish UDA recruits at the Masonic hall. Wishart has since altered
hall letting procedures and leasing now has to be cleared by a committee
and a lodge member must vouch for those letting the premises. 
The Orange Order has been banned from using the Kennoway lodge?s premises.
Previously, Orangemen regularly hired out the hall. 
?Due to rogue members of the lodge linked to the Orange Order and the
UDA we took the decision to no longer allow them the use of the premises,?
said Wishart.
Senior police officers told Wishart that they were ?mounting similar
surveillance operations in the west of Scotland? against Masonic lodges
which might have been infiltrated by loyalist terrorists.
?I can?t say if there is or isn?t a risk elsewhere,?
said Wishart, pointing out that members of some of the 49 Fife lodges under
his command were also in the Orange Order. One other lodge in Fife also allows
the Orange Order to rent its premises for functions.
David Begg, the grand master of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, said if any
lodges were involved in supporting the UDA they would be closed. He has warned
Scotland?s 32 provincial masters to be extra vigilant but cannot compel
lodges to introduce committee-led hall letting procedures similar to those
adopted by Kennoway.
?We can?t tell lodges what to do. It is up to the trustees of each
lodge but we will be producing general guidance in the near future,?
he said.

The Order of the Skull & Bones; the Eugenic Societies; and Population Control organisations

  Spectrezine - you can

01Jul06 - Alfred Mendes - Bilderberg site exclusive
Eugenics (Greek for 'good birth') is the study of methods to improve the
human race by controlled selective breeding - bolstered by its concomitant
term 'population control'. 
The colonisation of the so-called 'under-developed', poorer countries of
this world by the more 'developed' capitalist-orientated countries (primarily
European), benefitted the latter greatly - at the expense of the former.
Slavery was one of the more tragic outcomes - another being that the colonisers,
now imbued with racist perceptions, subsequently set up organisations reflecting
this. And the fact that the membership lists of these organisations flaunt
the names of very influential politicians/statesmen, business tycoons and
bankers, surely calls for a closer look at the matter. And because of America's
currently leading role in this matter, it is necessary to recall that she
gained 'independence' as the United States of America after much infighting
between the colonisers (primarily British) who had invaded that country of
Indian Tribes - which led to genocidal attacks on those 'Red Indians'. A
story not unlike Britain's colonisation of Australia, wirh its indigenous Aborigines. 
As a backdrop to this, in 1798, an English clergyman-cum-economist, Thomas
Robert Malthus published a theory with eugenic (a term not then used) overtones,
arguing that an un-planned population grew faster than food production -
adding that famine and poverty were God's way of coping with man's laziness.
This was a theory much-welcomed by the colonisers and the organisations mentioned
This article will consider three such organisations: the Order of the Skull
& Bones; the Eugenic Societies; and Population Control organisations,
in a more-or-less chronological order, thereby leading to a more rational
grasp of the subject matter. 
Of the three, the Skull & Bones (of Yale University) was the earliest
formed. 'The Order', as it is referred to by its members, bears the aura
of secrecy and freemasonry, and is a bastion of White Anglo Saxon Protestant
(WASP) culture, wealth and influence. A partial list of its more prominent members reflects said influence: The Russell Family; Alphonso Taft; William
Howard Taft (his son); Henry Lewis Stimson; Averell Harriman; Robert A Lovett
(partner of merged Brown Brothers Harriman in1926); Harold Stanley (of Morgan
Stanley); Robert A. Taft; Prescott Bush Snr.; George Herbert Walker Bush;
G.W. Bush (current President); McGeorge Bundy (National Security Advisor to JFK); the Heinz family - et al. In other words, the 'corporate establishment',
as it is more popularly known. 
The following very brief story of its birth is intriguing, to put it mildly:
In 1823, using the old pirates' 'Skull & Crossbones' as its logo, Samuel
Russell founded an opium-smuggling company, Russell & Co. - and by 1829,
he had bought out the Perkins & Co., which had controlled the smuggling
of Turkish opium into China since 1789. In 1833, Samuel's second cousin,
William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft (who had served as Secretary
of War under President Rutherford B. Hayes) founded the Order of Skull &
In 1856, said William Huntington Russell (who had been valedictorian of his
class at Yale in 1833) incorporated Skull & Bones as the 'Russell Trust
Association'. It must be recalled here that the opium trading noted above
was still being run by the British East India Company (BEIC) - Britain then
being the great empire-builder - and that without Britain's collaboration
Russell & Co. would have collapsed. Simply put - the birth of Skull &
Bones (whose members are more commonly known as the 'Bonesmen') - was paid
for by opium drug-smuggling! While on the subject of Russell & Co., it
is intriguing to note that Warren Delano Jnr. (grandfather of that popular
'democrat', FDR), though not a 'Bonesman' - while acting as US Vice-Consul
in Canton, acted as Chief of Operations for Russell during the Opium War
of 1839 - '42, which resulted in the legalisation of opium in China, and
the acquisition of Hong Kong by the British. 
In the 1860's, Francis Galton (a cousin of Charles Darwin) took this Malthusian
theory (see above) a step further: in his own words he defined 'Eugenics'
( a word he coined) as "the science of improvement of the human race germ
plasm through better breeding" - adding that the poor were biologically inferior
- and he further advocated state intervention to solve the problem. In 1904,
he founded a research chair in eugenics at University College of London
In 1905, Dr. Alfred Ploetz and Dr. Ernst Rudin founded the Society of
Race-Hygiene in Germany. (about which, more later). 
In 1907, the Eugenic Education Society (which later became the Eugenic Society)
was founded in England. 
In 1910, the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) was founded in America. In their
own words, the ERO felt that "ultimate economic betterment should be sought
by breeding better people, not fewer of the existing sort." 
In 1912, the First International Eugenics Congress was held at London University.
It demonstrated the growing strength of the movement especially in England,
Germany and the United States. The opening speech at this congress was given
by Arthur James Balfour, who had been British Prime Minister from 1902 -
5; and, as Foreign Secretary under Lloyd George from 1916 - '19, made a deal
with the Zionists whereby Britain would support the setting up of a 'home'
for the Jews, in return for the Zionists using their considerable political
clout to persuade America to enter the war against Germany. (Britain was
by then in dire economic straits). This secular Zionist group of Ashkenazi Jews were surely not entitled to a 'homeland' in Palestine, as their country
of origin had been the Khazar Empire (which had adopted Judaism) of southern
In 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the United
States. It was renamed the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942.
She wrote: " the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the
'fit' is admittedly the greatest present menace to civilisation ... The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of
the mentally and physically defective." 
In 1922, the American Eugenics Society was founded. One of its co-founders,
Henry Laughlin (who had been Superintendent of the Eugenics Record Office
from l910 to 1921) later became President of the Pioneer Fund, a white
supremacist organisation. Another co-founder, Dr. Henry Fairfield Osborn,
in 1923, during a national debate on restricting immigration, spoke
enthusiastically about the results of intelligence testing carried out by
the Army: "I believe those tests were worth what the war (World War I) cost,
even in human life...We have learned once and for all that the Negro is not
like us." He also became president of the Pioneer Fund from 1947 to 1956.
Well documented is the fact that in between WW1 and WW2, Prescott Bush Snr.
- as an executive of W.A.Harriman & Co. (later becoming Brown Bros. Harriman)
- had, through a number of mergers with German companies, helped finance
Hitler's Nazi regime. Furthermore, in 1926, as a board member of bankers
Dillon Read, Major (as he then was) William Draper co-operated with W.A.
Harriman & Co. (Prescott S. Bush Snr. was Vice-President then) in the
handling of the corporate banking for Fritz Thyssen's German Steel Trust.
Thyssen had helped to fund the Nazi Party. By 1931, sterilisation laws had
been enacted in 27 states in the United States, and by 1935 enacted in Norway,
Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland and Germany. As for Germany: as noted above,
Ploetz and Rudin had set out an effective eugenics program which resulted
in the tragic killing of millions of Jews, communists et al. by the Nazi
Regime of Hitler. In fact, Rudin had been the chief architect of Law for
the Prevention of Hereditary Disease in Posterity passed July 1933 four months after Hitler came to power. An inriguing aside: as noted in the Rockefeller
Foundation Annual Reports 1928 1939, Rockefeller gave money for the "Kaiser
Wilhelm Institute" and thus subsidized Rudin. From 1932 - 1972, the US Public
Health Service studied the natural history of syphilis in hopes of justifying
treatment programs for blacks. It was called the "Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male", and involved 600 black men--399 with syphilis
and 201 who did not have the disease. Researchers told the men they were
being treated for "bad blood". In fact, the men were never given adequate
treatment for their disease. Even when penicillin became the drug of choice
for syphilis in 1947, researchers did not offer it to the subjects. In 1972,
as a result of a New York Times article, an Ad Hoc Advisory panel reviewed
the study and found that the Tuskegee Study was "ethically unjustified".
In August 1932 - and financed by the eugenicist, Major William Draper (see
above) - the third "International Conference on Eugenics" was held in New
York's American Museum of Natural History under the supervision of the
International Federation of Eugenics Societies. The proceedings were dedicated
to Averell Harriman's mother, who had financed the foundation of the Eugenics Record Office back in 1910 (see above). Dr. Ernst Rudin (see above) travelled
to attend the Congress via the Hamburg-Amerika line (owned by W.A.Harriman
& Co) - and was unanimously elected president of the International Federation
of Eugenics Societies! 
A few years after WW 2, Professor Dr. Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, who,
in 1937,had been Director of the Third Reich Institute for Heredity, Biology
and Racial Purity (and Josef Mengele's mentor) founded the Institute of Human
Genetics in Munster, and also became a foreign member of the American Eugenics
The setting up of the state of Israel by the Zionists in 1948 was an irrational
act (as implied above), the main beneficiary being America, which would now
have a well-armed, suborned ally in an Arab region rich in oil. The resulting
deaths of the many Arabs at the hands of the Israelis could have been stopped
by America many years ago. That it was not stopped can only mean that it
was in keeping with the policy of the eugenicist-dominated US Administration
- after all, Arabs are merely 'ragheads'. 
In 1950 and '51`, John Foster Dulles, then chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation
(later to be appointed Secretary of State by Eisenhower), led John D. Rockefeller
III on a series of world tours, "focussing on the need to stop the expansion
of the non-white populations". In 1952, Frederick Osborn (1889-1981) nephew
of Henry Fairfield Osborn Sr. (see above), an officer of the American Eugenics
Society/SSSB for more than 30 years, helped John D. Rockefeller III establish
the Population Council in 1952, served as the council's first administrator
and was on its board of trustees for many years. 
In 1958, Eisenhower appointed Draper (see above) as head of a committee to
study the proper course for military aid to other countries. Draper changed
the focus of the committee and recommended that the US goverment react to
the threat of the population explosion by formulating plans to depopulate
the poorer countries, as the growth of the world's non-white population should be regarded as dangerous to the national security of the United States!
Eisenhower had the sense to reject this. 
In the1960's Draper founded the Population Crisis Committee and the Draper
fund, and joined with the Rockerfeller and Du Pont families to promote eugenics
as population control... 
While serving in Congress - and with Draper as his 'population expert' -
George H.W. Bush chaired the Republican Task Force on Earth Resources and
Population and invited Professors William Shockley and Arthur Jensen to explain
to the committee how allegedly runaway birth-rates for African-Americans
were down-breeding the American population. On August 5 1969, Bush summed
up the testimony his black-inferiority advocates had given to the Task Force
before Congress. 
With the term 'eugenics' now, in the Post-War period, tainted with an aura
of genocide and racism, Major General Frederick Osborn, founder member of
both the American Eugenics Society and the Pioneer Fund, stated the public
relations problem bluntly: "Eugenic goals are most likely to be attained
under a name other than eugenics."...In other words, the goals must be
camouflaged - it would now be known as crypto-eugenics. In 1960, the British
Eugenics Society agreed with this, stating "The Society's activities in
crypto-eugenics should be pursued vigorously..." - and adopted the proposal.
In 1973, this resulted in the American Eugenics Society becoming the more academic-sounding 'Society for the Study of Social Biology'. Crypto-eugenics
would now be the order-of-the-day. 
On June 9th 1969, Dr.D.M. MacArthur, Deputy Director of Research & Technology
for the Pentagon, requested a sum of $10 million from the Congressional House
Subcommittee on Appropriations to develop a new contagious micro-organsm
capable of destroying the human immune system - in order to counteract any
possible future virus capable of affecting said human immunity. It would
therefore be necessary, first, to create such a virus! This resulted in a
'virus' discovered some ten years later in America which became known as
'acquired immune deficiency syndrome' (AIDS). It should be stressed that
this virus first appeared in America, and, as noted by Neville Hodgkinson
on the website in May 2006: increasingly complex procedures
were taken to diagnose this virus in a reliable manner - "but the basic problem
- not being able to validate any of these procedures against pure virus taken
from patients - still remains". Furthermore, he reveals in comprehensive
detail, that both the HIV tests and statistics concerning AIDS have been
manipulated in a duplicitous manner. It would seem that the main beneficiaries
have been the pharmaceutical firms! 
In April 1974, Kissinger drew up a secret plan for population control called
the 'National Security Plan of Action 200' (NSSM 200), which was endorsed
by the National Security Decision Memorandum 314, and finally declassified
in 1900. In brief, it claimed that population growth in the less-developed
countries was "..creating political or even national security problems for
the US", and it would seek help from the UN Fund for Population Activities
(UNFPA founded in 1969) - but stressing that it would be under US leadership.
NB: this was at a time when America was being wracked by the Watergate scandal,
as a result of which its president, Richard Nixon, had to resign. At the
very least, it would seem that - in the eyes of the Administration - the
policy of 'population control' stood high in its list of priorities. In August
1974, at a meeting in Bucharest, the UN passed a resolution adopting The
World Population of Action as proposed by the US delegation. It would seem
that US leadership was indeed essential! The UNFPA was to hold similar meetings
at 10-year intervals thereafter. 
On October 2nd 1979, Robert McNamara (President of the World Bank) addressed
a group of international bankers thus: "We can begin with the most critical
problem of all, population growth"..concluding that "..either the current
birth rates must come down more quickly, or the death rates must go up...There
are, of course, many ways in which the death rates can go up. In a thermonuclear
age, we can accomplish it very quickly and decisively"(as indeed they had
done in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in1945). Not surprising statements, coming,
as they do, from a man who was Secretary of Defense during the genocidal
Vietnam War - but surprising in view of the crypto-eugenic stand taken by
the American Eugenics Society noted above, a stand which McNamara, a
self-evidently keen eugenicist, would have certainly been aware of. It can
only be assumed that he did not agree with the society's stand, and was arrogant
enough to ignore it. 
In 1980, William Draper III (General Draper's son) served as co-chairman
for financing G.H.W. Bush's campaign for the presidency that year. Reagan
won and appointed Bush as his Vice President. 
In 1986 - as a result of Vice President George H.W.Bush's advice to Reagan
- William Draper III was appointed Administrator and CEO of the UN Development
Program (UNDP), which was founded in 1965 by merging two existing U.N.
organizations: the Expanded Program of Technical Assistance (EPTA), and the
U.N. Special Fund. Since 1971, it has been responsible for coordinating all
development assistance supplied by the United Nations system. UNDP was a
key player in the global aid network - and the UNFPA (see above). 
The foregoing is not a comprehensive list by any means - but is surely enough
evidence that eugenics, population control (call it what you will) has played,
and continues to play a crucial role in the policy-making of the so-called
'developed' countries - America in particular. 
A recent event of pertinence follows: an earthquake of magnitude 9.0 on the
Richter scale struck the Indian Ocean region on December 26th 2004, resulting
in a Tsumani which killed approximately a quarter-of-a-million people. It
was subsequently revealed that the Americans - with their European partners/acolytes - were aware of this earthquake almost immediately, as
they controlled a number of seismic stations in the region (to say nothing
of their earth-scouring satellites), the most important being the American
military base on Diego Garcia. However, thay had not notified those countries threatened by the Tsunami. The only conclusion to be drawn from this is that
this was a deliberate act on the part of the Euro-Americans, and, keeping
in mind the chronological events listed above, it can justifiably be assumed
that, in this instance, the eugenists and their cohort 'Bonesmen' had scored
a hit! 
Moreover, the close relationship noted above between Corporate America (with
its 'Skull and Bones'-ridden Administration) and Nazi/fascist Germans makes
a mockery of the former's claim to democracy. Using eugenicists' terminology,
they could more accurately be described as 'crypto-democrats' (fascists).
The definition of 'Fascism' in a dictionary is "a philosophy or system of government that advocates or exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right,
typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together
with the ideology of belligerent nationality'. This, in turn, reveals that
capitalism lies at the core of fascism. But, as noted above, this is a fact
which must be hidden by these global capitalists. 
It is therefore imperative that this subject of eugenics/population control
is subjected to far greater public scrutiny than it has received from 'our
media' - which, after all, is in hock to its corporate owners: it says what
it is paid to say!
