Comment by Wes Penre, Illuminati News: I want
to bring attention to this information primarily
because of the supposed connection between Phi Beta
Kappa, Freemasonry and the Bavarian Illuminati.
reason there is so much speculation about the
Bavarian Illuminati is because the real truth hasn't
been told anywhere that I can see. In short, the
Bavarian Illuminati, whose first Grandmaster was
Adam Weishaupt, was just a more recent branch of an
old Secret Society, going back thousands of years. A
branch of it is still alive and well today. They
were the ones who started the Freemasonic Order from
the beginning, but the original Freemasons had no
desire to take over the world and control the
population - quite the contrary. It had a purpose to
counter the 'Powers That Be' and put an end to wars
with time the Freemasonic Order was infiltrated by
the very same forces it was fighting against and was
eventually taken over. It led to the Freemasonic
Order we have today, which is totally corrupted and
in the hands of the Power Elite.
make a long story short, the Bavarian Illuminati and
the PBK are not connected, and Freemasonry and the
Bavarian Illuminati are not connected either
anymore. When this has been made clear, this article
makes sense and the controversy regarding the
Bavarian Illuminati is solved.

The word Illuminati means 1.
People claiming to be unusually
enlightened with regard to a subject. 2.
Illuminati: Any of various groups
claiming special religious
enlightenment. Latin illmint,
from pl. of illmintus,
past participle of illminre,
to light up. See

American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language".
definitions say, any group which considers itself "enlightened"
could rightfully call itself the Illuminati. So is also the case. If
you google "The Illuminati", you will find quite a few groups
claiming this name.
It can be confusing, so before we continue, I
want to make very clear that the Illuminati we are discussing here
is NOT a benevolent secret society who wants to create peace and
harmony in this world by helping to bring freedom to the
people. Such a benevolent group DOES exist and happens to call
themselves "The Illuminati", and is actually the original
group using this name.
They have been working behind
the scenes for a very long time to help humanity free themselves
from the chains we have been stuck in for thousands of years.
Unfortunately, the Powers That Be, the evil puppet masters running
this show on war and destruction, infiltrated the truth movement
already in an early stage by adopting the term Illuminati to
describe themselves, thus using the same name as the original
benevolent group. This to further confuse the matter.
Now, almost all researchers
(including myself) have adopted the term "Illuminati" to describe
the Dark Side, and by doing so, we have to a certain degree
unwittingly helped discrediting the benevolent group with this
original name and made it harder for them to get the job done.
Therefore, I will let this
definition follow each and every article posted on this website from
now on in an effort to try to clear up the confusion. I apologize
that so many people now have mixed up the groups, and I have partly,
but ignorant to this fact until recently, been responsible for that.
The point is that the Illuminati I am
exposing here is the super-rich Power Elite with an ambition to
maintain the slave society they have been working so hard to
accomplish over the millennia!
term "New World Order", just like the term "Illuminati", has been
used by at least two different groups, meaning basically two
1) A goal to put an end to the current Order (called "The
Old World Order" - OWO),
which is considered evil and anti-survival, and therefore the
current power elite needs to be overthrown and their Old World Order
to be destroyed and replaced with a benevolent "New World Order".
The goal is a humanity-friendly One World Government. The
means putting an end to the current Old World Order with violence, if
Personally, I don't agree with using violence to stop the Old World
Order, as I am more into a spiritual solution (see elsewhere on my
website), but I want to make my
readers aware of that there IS a group calling themselves "The
Illuminati", who want to replace the current Old World Order (the
Rothschilds, Rockefellers etc.) with a benevolent New World Order,
where people are no longer slaves to this Power Elite.
2) A goal to create a micro-chipped society, so that they more
easily can maintain the current Order that they have created
throughout the millennia. This is the
"New World Order" the Bush's, the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds,
Gordon Brown, Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and others are
supporting and working on maintaining. This is also the "New World Order"
I am fighting against via this website.
Just like in the case with the term "Illuminati", this second group
has confused researchers and truth seekers by using the basically
benevolent term "New World Order" for their negative and malevolent
goals. This has made it harder for the Resistance to operate,
because both "The Illuminati" and the "New World Order" have been
used as a propaganda for the Dark Side and everything connected to
these two terms now are perceived as negative.
If we really look at it, it's nothing
"new" with what this Power Elite officially calls the "New World Order",
more than an effort to hold on to the Old World Order they have
I hope this to some degree makes things clearer.
