Judah P. Benjahmin was the head of the Knights of the Golden Circle when he and Albert Pike came together to serve under Jefferson Davis and the newly formed Confederate States of America. Pike had already assumed leadership as Grand master of the Southern Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite Lodge in Charleston, South Carolina which was the first state to secede from the Union. Benjahmin received notoriety as the highest-ranking Jew in the Cabinet of Jefferson Davis while Pike headed the Confederate Secret Service.

At the end of the “Civil” War, Pike organized the plot to murder President Abraham Lincoln, involving his lodge member, John Wilkes Booth. The Union Army put out an all points bulletin to find Albert Pike and Judah Benjahmin. Mr. Benjahmin escaped by leaving the country through Florida to the Caribbean
then to England. Queen Victoria I hired the former Secretary of War of the Confederate States as her legal consultant. Pike was caught trying to escape into Canada, and arrested. Vice President Andrew Johnson (now the new President) pardoned Pike and invited him to the Whitehouse.

Did I mention that Pike was Johnson’s Grand Master? Yes Johnson was a Scottish Rite Mason and elevated from Master Mason to 32 Degree Mason. The man who may have been responsible for the murder of President Lincoln went free and there was no trial.

In the 1870s, former Confederate general Forest of Tennessee became the head of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He enlisted the aid of Albert Pike to write the Klan initiation rites. Former general Lee of Virginia coined the phrase “invisible empire” while refusing the leadership position.

While Morals and Dogma demonstrates Mr. Pikes brilliance, and his knowledge of the African origins of masonry, the book also gives the reader insight as to how one can decode hidden messages, signs and symbols (see the DaVinci Codes, Angels and Demons, and National Treasure). Mr. Pike agrees with me,
that the first lodge of record is at SakaRa (Saqquara) and built 6000 years ago.

Albert Pike, MWGM, led a Grand Lodge, whose members were partners in the British East India Company, which was one of the largest slave trading operations in the world, whose members were active in the KKK, and whose members made up the crux of Confederate leadership. Pike’s lodge members were chief suspects in the murder of President Lincoln and got away without a trial (see JFK). Last but not least, Pike says himself, in his book Morals and Dogma, “we worship Lucifer, not Adonai (El Ohim)”.

I have visited the tomb of Mr. Pike, in the Lodge at 1733 16th Street, NW, Washington, D. C., where he is upright and standing on the square. The question for you is….is he really?
