Witchcraft and The Constitution

The US Constitution was written in 1787 after the Second Continental Congress called for a convention in Philadelphia to modify the Articles of Confederation, the document that served as the foundation for the United States' first national government. On May 25, 1787, fifty-five delegates from twelve of the thirteen states (Rhode Island boycotted the convention) converged on Philadelphia intent on solving problems that arose from weaknesses in the Articles of Confederation. The written authorization was "to devise such further provisions as shall appear to [the delegates] necessary to render the constitution of the Federal Government adequate to the exigencies of the Union."

Some of the issues they needed to address was the lack of Executive and Judicial Branches (no federal court system), a means of providing fair representation for states of unequal population, a way of mediating disputes between the states, provision for taxing power or other means of raising revenue, and related issues.

The first order of business was to elect George Washington to serve as President of the Convention, and to establish rules of procedure.

During the course of debate, it soon became clear that the Articles of Confederation, written only a decade earlier in 1777, were unsalvageable as a framework for the envisioned Republic, so the delegates decided to write a new Constitution.

Some delegates were outraged by the idea and left the convention early. Those who remained gradually worked out a system of plans and compromises that they believed would create a strong central government without depriving the states of all sovereign authority.

On September 17, 1787, thirty-nine of the fifty-five delegates signed the Constitution and agreed to promote its ratification to their state legislatures.

As required under Article VII, the ninth state ratified the Constitution on June 21, 1788, and the new federal government became operational on March 4, 1789.

Witchcraft from the Middle Ages to the 1700s
Starting from around 700 A.D., witchcraft was viewed more and more as heresy, or the rejection of the teachings of the church in Europe. Thus was begun a long campaign by the Christian church to eradicate heresy. From around the 1000s, heretics began to be sentenced to death by burning by religious leaders.

In fact, the Inquisition, which had its beginnings around 1230, was an attempt by the church to hunt out and penalize them and coerce them to follow the church's teachings. Eventually, both the Christian churches as well as the nonreligious, secular courts began persecuting witches. As a matter of fact, particularly after the 1500s, it was in the secular courts that most of the witchcraft trials were held.

Historians are skeptical whether Devil worship was ever actually widespread. However, the stories that were spread about it created a climate of anxiety and fear.

It was during the late 1500s and the early 1600s that the witchcraft trials reached their peak in Europe. Many of the victims, comprising mostly women, were usually charged falsely of witchcraft. Most of these women, accused of witchcraft, were cruelly tortured until they were forced to confess. Then they were imprisoned, banished, or were executed.

In the American Colonies, particularly in New England, a small number of women incriminated as witches were persecuted from the middle of the 1600s to the early part of the 1700s. While some faced banishment, others were summarily executed.

“Roosevelt as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal was first struck with the representation of the 'All-Seeing Eye,' a Masonic representation of Great Architect the Universe. Next he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 (May 1st, 1776, founding of the Illuminati) but would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt like myself was a 32nd degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill rather that a coin.”

The year 1776 was significant for three (three is also a significant number in the occult) reasons. Most people know this as the year the united colonies declared independence from England. Although Freemasons were a minority in this project, the Masonic philosophy permeates the document. Secondly, the Scottish Economist Adam Smith published An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. Smith classified society into three orders those who live by rent, by labor and by profits. The implementing of the writings and economic philosophy of Smith gave the United States it economic success. The latter two events are relatively well known to most individuals. The third event was the founding of the Ancient Illuminates Seers of Bavaria (or Illuminati) on May 1, 1776 by Adam Weishaupt. The date may be taken to represent any of these three events. These three major events of 1776 all contributed to changing the world into a New World Order. Making it indeed the year of the Beast.
Some researchers have suggested that Weishaupt may have played some role in designing the Great Seal of the United States. The elements present on the reverse of the seal have also been associated with the Bavarian Illuminati. The presence of these elements indicates the role played by the Illuminati in founding America. Through Franklin and other founding fathers, Weishaupt certainly would have been able to exercise at least an indirect influence on the founding of the New Constellation (coven) of states.

Weishaupt’s role in forming America may have even been greater than is generally admitted. When one looks at portraits of George Washington (the first President of the United States) one sees a great deal of variation in his appearance (three sample portraits of “Washington” are shown below. The most famous portrait of Washington is the one on the far right. Next to it is a known portrait of Weishaupt. The portrait of the elder “Washington” more closely resembles Weishaupt than the portraits of Washington when he was leading the continental Army. Theory has it that Weishaupt killed Washington and took his place as first President. This theory is supported by the facts that “Washington” wrote about growing hemp in his diaries, a letter of May 26, 1794 to Dr. James Anderson, May 26 [vol. 33, p. 433, (U.S. govt. pub., 1931)] and letters to his caretaker, Williams Pearce, in 1795 & 1796.
