I devoured the second season of House of Cards like a box of chocolates. I was surprised to learn that the main character, Francis Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, is a Freemason. What? You didn’t see that?
Neither did I. That’s my point. Most congress critters belong to this satanic secret society, but you can watch a series pretending to unveil Washington politics, and not hear the word “Freemason” mentioned once. (The second season also avoids any mention of Jews and Zionist influence.) Actually there is one Masonic reference, the upside down flag in the series logo is a Masonic sign of distress, perhaps a wink to people in the know.
Search “How Many congressmen are Freemasons?” on Google and you’ll find practically no information. Just a story about the Congressional stenographer who broke down last October blurted about Freemasons and the devil controlling Congress There’s no reminder of the 2004 Bush-Kerry election where both men confessed to being members of the Masonic Skull and Bones, but couldn’t talk about it because “it’s a secret.”
How gullible can people get? Both Presidential candidates belong to a secret society. Nothing happening here. Move along folks. The watchdogs of freedom, the mass media, didn’t even pull on their leash. (Another deception in House of Cards is the idea that the msm actually pursues the truth.)
The pioneer on the subject of Masonic control is James Wardner in a 1996 book entitled Unholy Alliances. Here are 10 facts about their control of Congress and the Judiciary in the recent past. You can be sure that things have only gotten worse.
1. Wardner lists names of 75 congressmen who were Freemasons in the 1980’s but there were probably many more. These included both liberals and rednecks: Bob Dole, Jesse Helms, Mark Hatfield, Lloyd Bentsen, Robert Byrd and Arlen Specter. Presidents who were Freemasons: George Washington. James Monroe. Andrew Jackson, James Polk. James Buchanan. Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William McKinley. Theodore Roosevelt, Howard Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, LBJ, Gerald Ford, G.H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
