    Great, another bullsheeeeeet propaganda treatment, courtesy of the media presstitute Bill O’Reilly, concerning the JFK Government Ritual Murder. My friend read Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing JFK” propaganda book and liked it, until I loaned him a copy of “High Treason”, and he realized what utter nonsense O’Reilly’s tome is. After about 500 coincidences the “Offi-CIA-l Version” of events is revealed for the utter pack of lies that it is, has been, and ever will be. In order to understand what actually went down on 11-22-63 one has to look at the Occult Aspects of this crime: JFK, seated next to Jackie [SUN King & MOON Goddess Symbolism] is killed between two Obelisks [Twin Obelisks stood outside of the main entrances to the sacred Egyptian Temples; one Obelisk stood in Dealey Plaza at the time of the Ritual Murder of the President, while the second Obelisk was raised as a ‘Memorial’ beyond the Grassy Knoll, which features 14 segments — conforming to the Osiris Legend of Death & Resurrection. JFK was killed on a direct line between these two Obelisks, at the 45 Degree North Angle of the Inverted Pyramid [geometric street roadway pattern] that he was driven into, in plain view of the Freemasonic Temple of Dallas. And on this day the North Node of the Moon [called “The Dragon’s Head”] was exactly conjunct the Sacred Star of the Egyptians, Greeks, and the United States of America, SPT/Sothis/Sirius! In other words, the North Node was located where the SUN is located on the Fourth of July in 1776, and on every year except Leap Year ever since! When one studies Occultism one quickly comes to the firm conclusion that Politics IS Witchcraft; this is probably why Male Witches are called ‘WAR – locks’. This is also probably why George Washington was sworn in as our first president on “The Witches’ Sabbath” of April 30, 1789 [Walpurgis Night] while wearing his lambskin masonic apron as the “Grand Master Freemason”. The Warren Report has more in common with “Rosemary’s Baby” than the Truth, but the mainstream media will never reveal the hideous truth about that dark day, or any other dark day since. Now you know why the Federal Government “Licenses” TV and radio stations. This blog will never see print, electronic or otherwise, but if anyone really wants to film a factual documentary detailing the Occult and Esoteric realities behind this tragic event, please email me at:
