 A Warning to All Freemasons

Ukrainian Parliamentarian Suggests Jailing Freemasons:
Ukrainian MP Taras Chornovil has suggested that the country’s parliament, the Supreme Rada, introduce criminal responsibility for Freemasonry

He has submitted to the Rada a bill entitled “On amendments to the Criminal Code of Ukraine”, according to which, membership of Freemason organizations, or any other organizations that require rituals and oaths of higher priority than the current law, must be punished by a jail sentence of up to three years.

The bill also reads that the members of Masonic organizations who are Ukrainian civil servants, law enforcers or military servicemen must be jailed for three to seven years.

Ukraine’s president, members of parliament, civil servants of ministerial rank, military servicemen and law enforcers of the rank of major-general or higher, if discovered to be members of Freemason organizations, may face up to 10 years in prison.


"The more I read about Gaiaguys, the more I'm reminded of Jonestown." - "Masonic Light", May, 2006, on the "Above Top Secret" Discussion Board.

"It's clear the OTO used every card in the pack to try to discredit, i.e., 'silence' Gaiaguys.
Yet all OTO achieved was to attract suspicious public scrutiny of itself, the Masons, the police, the judiciary, the political octopus. Leaving the public with the firm conviction that (1) OTO and its friends-in-authority must have had a LOT to hide ... and (2) that the Gaiaguys claims about OTO/Masons must have been VERY close to the mark ! Instead of trying to blame the victims and destroy the messengers --- secret societies would be better employed in ridding themselves of the depraved lunatics who lurk in their midst."

"While the Freemason's secrecy has resulted in endless conspiracy theories and jokes about secret handshakes, It's all just theatre really,' explains Ken Cartner, 72, the current Grand Master of the Bangalow Lodge.

Cartner will concede that a noose around the neck is involved in the Freemason Initiation ceremony - but that, too, is just theatrical he says, symbolic of the bondage or commitment the new member makes to the fraternity."

What are the Freemasons so afraid of?

Perhaps it’s just the overwrought minds of conspiracy theorists, or maybe it’s just the obvious being attempted right before the eyes of the sleepy, sheep-like masses who are so easily manipulated by their fears.

Masonic Cult Leader Rael real name Claude Vorilhon)

On the 13th of December 1973, French journalist Rael (real name Claude Vorilhon) was taking a hike in the mountains and claims he was contacted by a visitor from another planet, and asked to establish an Embassy to welcome these aliens back to Earth. The UFO which landed which bore the (above) symbol


In this article I have established many common reference points between the Raelian cult and Freemasonry.

  1. Raelian main logo using symbolism common to Freemasonry
  2. Rael's name being a mixture of Egyptian paganism and Judaism which is exactly what Freemasonry combines
  3. The Raelian call for a New World Order under previously published Masonic guidelines
  4. The use of the words Order and Chaos which is similar to Freemasonry's Order out of Chaos
  5. The Raelian plan to abolish money according to the Masonic plan
  6. The use of the Masonic phrase 'Golden Age'
  7. The importance placed upon the Kabalah, called the book closest to the truth, which is the foundation of Freemasonry
  8. The Raelian claim of Freemason Joseph Smith as a true prophet
  9. Masonic capstone symbolism on Raelian book cover
  10. Raelian plan to rebuild Temple of Solomon* in Jerusalem which is a long running plan of Illumined Freemasons

*Note from gaiaguys. There was no "Temple of Solomon".





Stephen Knight, author of The Brotherhood*, claims that during ritual ceremonies for the Holy Royal Arch exaltation, candidates learn the Lost Name or Word of God, said to be "Jahbulon." Knight maintains that most Masons do not realize the significance of the name, which he defines as a combination of three names: Jah, for the Hebrew god YAHWEH; Bul, the ancient Canaanite fertility god Baal and devil; and On, for Osiris, the Egyptian god of the underworld.

In England royalty has joined Freemasonry since the beginning, with the King as Grand Patron, although a woman, Queen Elizabeth II*, serves as Grand Patroness. Winston Churchill was a Freemason. British Masonry functions much like old school ties, with the Brotherhood strong in the fields of law, jurisprudence, police, government, and the armed forces.

You can get no help because your story sounds so paranoid that you are thought a crank, one of those nuts who think the whole world is a conspiracy against them.

It is a strange phenomenon. By setting up a situation that most people will think of as fantasy, these people can poison every part of a person's life.

If they give in they go under. If they don't give in It's only putting off the day because if they fight, so much unhappiness will be brought to the people around them that there will likely come a time when even their families turn against them out of desperation.

I was not getting any allegations about other kinds of philanthropic or civic groups. I was not getting accounts about Kiwanis or Lions Club or Knights of Columbus or Rotarians or whatnot, it was only allegations about deviances involving Freemasons sometimes in Masonic Lodges. My sense all along is that even if some of these allegations are true, ordinary Masons would be appalled about the allegations I was hearing ..."

But the matter was considered serious enough to warrant examination by the House of Commons home affairs committee. Earlier this year the Brisbane Courier Mail attempted a similar inquiry - and met a wall of silence. "

Queen warned butler of shadows

 By Peter Fray 

London: The former royal butler Paul Burrell has revealed that the Queen warned him that his close relationship with Princess Diana had put him in danger from shadowy "powers".

(But she said nothing more about any shadowy powers in her traditional Christmas message)
Both the below from November 9th, 2002

More tales from the palace

"But in the absence of an official denial about the Queen's dark forces, speculation has focused on the role of Britain's secret services, MI5 and MI6, and their unelected role in protecting the national interest.

Talk of shadowy forces and Diana has brought some relief and publicity to tycoon Mohammed al-Fayed, whose son Dodi died with Diana in Paris in 1997. Al-Fayed has argued for years that MI5 and MI6 killed the pair and, under the headline, 'Queen came through for me', the Daily Mirror duly reported his vindication.

"'Now we know that even the Queen fears their evil influence and feels powerless to prevent their secret operation,'" he said. "'What the Queen's intervention [with Burrell] does prove, though, is vindication of my own deeply held belief that the security forces do terrible things that nobody - not even Her Majesty - knows about.'"


Fresh spectres haunt the Queen

"Prince Charles's office has broken its silence about the alleged gay rape by a member of the royal household on a former employee of Princess Diana, which has emerged in the British media as the reason behind the Queen's intervention in the Burrell case.

It is believed the alleged victim received more than $A81,000 in compensation from the royals and left the service.

The prince's office, in a media statement, denied there had been a cover-up in the case and claimed the matter had been investigated and dismissed, both internally and by police."

Yeah. Maybe like the way the Freemasons in the police "investigate" similar crimes here?

Australia is currently embroiled in a huge scandal created by James Hardie Industries, whose deadly asbestos products have killed and are killing many people who were/are struggling for their rightful compensation, because the company is moving heaven and earth to avoid their legal responsibilities. How can this happen? There's a line in the below article which provides a hint, for those who have eyes to see.

Former New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory "GRAND MASTER", George Curry, was, "... a former executive with James Hardie Industries."

 Sydney Morning Herald

Hardie boss reaps $8.8m payout

October 22, 2004

Outgoing James Hardie chief executive Peter Macdonald has left the company with 32 times the average compensation payout for asbestos victims.

His resignation ended his formal 11 years with the company, a month after an inquiry report into the company's massive underfunding of asbestos compensation was released.

The 51-year-old, who lives in California in the United States, is still under investigation by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) as a result of the report, and could face charges over possible breaches of the corporations law.

James Hardie said Mr Macdonald will receive $8.83 million ($US6.5 million), despite refusing to leave his post a month ago.

Back then he stood aside until "matters surrounding the commissioner's report and the ASIC investigation become clearer".

Whether or not these matters are any clearer the journey has ended for Mr Macdonald, who joined James Hardie Industries Ltd in 1993 as general manager of the company's Australian fibre cement business.

A year later he was appointed president of the US operations, and in 1998 became chief operating officer.

In 1999 he was appointed managing director and chief executive officer of James Hardie Industries Ltd.

In the 2003/04 financial year Mr Macdonald received a base pay of $1.12 million, and a bonus worth $2.37 million.

He owns over 400,000 shares and CHESS units of foreign securities (CUFS), which are currently worth over $2.4 million, and has another 3.74 million share options available.

ASIC's investigation follows Commissioner David Jackson, QC, handing down his findings on September 21 from a six-month inquiry into a foundation set up to fund James Hardie's asbestos compensation claims.

Mr Jackson found Mr Macdonald had misled and deceived the public when he claimed the company had set aside enough money for the Medical Research and Compensation Foundation (MRCF) to meet all claims.

James Hardie had provided the MRCF with $293 million, but that money is now set to run out in just three years' time.

And Mr Jackson said if all the liabilities were to be paid in one go, a reliable estimate would be for $2.24 billion.

Mr Jackson found that Mr Macdonald had breached the Trade Practices Act and the Fair Trading Act as well as his duties as an officer of a company.

Mr Macdonald was also accused of making a false statement to the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) by stating that James Hardie was "fully funded" to meet the future asbestos compensation claims when he allegedly knew that wasn't the case.

Mr Macdonald has since apologised for the insufficient funding, but has never spoken about resigning.

He told journalists in August: "The decision about my tenure is one that the board has ... the ability to make ... I'm sitting here doing my job in the best interests of the company".

James Hardie said Mr Macdonald stood by comments he made on September 28, in which he said: "It is my intention to vigorously defend myself against allegations made by Commissioner Jackson, at the appropriate time and in the proper forum".

In August, the company's chairman Meredith Hellicar defended the board's decision not to sack its chief executive, but she highlighted the positives, saying "Peter's contribution to the James Hardie business is a matter of record" as he has produced "above market growth consistently over many years".

However, ACTU federal secretary Greg Combet said Mr Macdonald should have resigned sooner.

"I think the history of this company shows that they always have to be dragged kicking and screaming to a final position," Mr Combet said.

Having received his money, Mr Macdonald is still expected to remain in a consulting capacity with the company for an interim period.

Money for James Hardie victims could dry up in six months

October 25th, 2004
By Elisabeth Sexton

Meredith Hellicar (left)

Throughout the furore over James Hardie's asbestos compensation, the ill and dying have received their court-awarded damages in full - but that could change next month.

The directors of the Medical Research and Compensation Foundation, the trust set up by the company in 2001, have resolved to call in a liquidator within weeks if no fresh funds are found.

Obliged to distribute the foundation's dwindling assets equally among present and future claimants, the liquidator would pay a small fraction of compensation payouts determined by a court.

Typical damages awards are $260,000 for mesothelioma and $95,000 for the less vicious asbestosis.

A company spokesman, John Noble, said yesterday James Hardie was "seeking more information to assess how we might assist the foundation" and expected to hold a second meeting on the threat of imminent liquidation today. "It is in no one's interest that the foundation is not able to pay legitimate claims," he said.

Two company representatives met foundation directors on Friday to discuss the foundation's deteriorating finances.

The recent special commission of inquiry headed by David Jackson, QC, estimated the foundation would run out of money in 2007, leaving 8000 asbestos victims owed more than $1.5 billion empty-handed.

But the foundation now expects to be insolvent by next April. The change in timing is mainly due to a freeze in an $85 million payment that had been expected from the company.

The payment was part of an agreement negotiated in 2001 which included an undertaking that the foundation would not sue James Hardie.

Since the foundation became aware of the potential size of the shortfall, it has been considering taking legal action against the company. Mr Jackson did not take into account that the $85 million payment would be contested when he estimated the foundation would survive three more years.

If James Hardie does not supply interim funding, the appointment of a liquidator could complicate negotiations on a permanent resolution to the shortfall.

These talks, between James Hardie and the ACTU secretary, Greg Combet, who is representing unions, asbestos support groups and the NSW Government, began on October 1.

James Hardie's chairman, Meredith Hellicar, last week rejected Mr Combet's complaint of slow progress as baseless.

In August the foundation's directors received NSW Court of Appeal approval for paying claimants 100 cents in the dollar while aware that the foundation's assets would run out before all valid claims were paid.

The court, while acknowledging this could give present claimants a benefit at the expense of future victims, took into account the possible transfer of fresh funds to the foundation.

Although Mr Jackson found James Hardie had no legal obligation to top up the foundation's assets, he said its recent offer of voluntary contributions was the "right" thing to do.

The three appeal judges said the directors of the foundation should return to court before December 6 for further guidance. The matter is listed on November 8.

Sydney Morning Herald Letters to the Editor

Odd morality that awards millions to disgraced CEO

 October 25th, 2004

Attempts by James Hardie chairman Meredith Hellicar to justify the obscene payout to disgraced chief executive Peter Macdonald is breathtaking, no pun intended.

According to Ms Hellicar, the board was bound both legally and morally to make the payout of almost $9 million while at the same time paying compensation to those suffering asbestos-related diseases at an average of $250,000 a claim.

It is to be hoped the board's new-found morality will be extended to claimants yet to receive fair and just recompense, although how you compensate families for the premature loss of a loved one I don't know. Both major political parties have now paid their James Hardie donations into the survivors' compensation fund. I will not be holding my breath to see if Mr Macdonald will do likewise.

Ian De Landelles, Hawker (ACT), October 24.

James Hardie asbestos workers get a life sentence; Peter Macdonald gets a golden handshake. Macdonald now has no financial worries, unlike the families of asbestos workers. If action had been taken for safer working conditions and the banning of asbestos in the first place, and had been recognised by the company as a problem instead of labelling unions and workers militants, the severity of the problem would not have been as great as it is today.

Alexander Dunnett, Brisbane, October 22.

The overdue resignations of James Hardie's top two executives, CEO Peter Macdonald and chief financial officer Peter Shafron, is a step in the right direction but their obscene payout is a slap in the face for thousands of workers and their families who are fighting for compensation.

Words fail me in describing how I feel about Hardie's decision to reward handsomely - instead of punishing severely - the two executives for their reprehensible and immoral acts. I find the board's action or lack of it deserves the condemnation of every decent Australian who believes in a fair go.

Now that the board has proved that it is incapable of or unwilling to do the right thing by its workers, the Carr Government must stop pussyfooting around and apply pressure on the company, and that does not include giving it more time or issuing an idle threat. A boycott could be a first step.

Morris Mansour, Ashfield, October 24.

So Mr Macdonald may "never work again". There is always Centrelink. That is where the rest of us unemployables end up when companies like James Hardie have finished with us, after inflicting the J curves and level playing fields of corporate capitalism's so-called ethics.

We never collected an $8.8 million unemployment benefit either. This is a fine example of corporate capitalism in its primal glory. Messrs Howard and Latham: where are you?

Frank McQuade, Kogarah, October 22.

James Hardie can find $8.8 million to pay out the CEO. Shame it cannot do the same, as yet, for the asbestos victims.

Anthony Rich, Randwick, October 22.

Sydney Morning Herald

Hardie asbestos fund folds

November 25th, 2004

More than 700 asbestos disease victims face reduced payouts in the immediate future after James Hardie's compensation fund applied for provisional liquidation.

Asbestos victims were furious, directing their anger at James Hardie for not providing a "no strings attached" cash injection to save the foundation.

NSW Premier Bob Carr said James Hardie was "wrecking their image" for all time by its stubbornness.

Medical Research and Compensation Foundation (MRCF) managing director Dennis Cooper said he regretted taking the step to apply for provisional liquidation, but said there was no choice because the fund's balance sheet was "decidedly sick".

"The greatest anguish that the foundation has felt in making this decision has been the continuation of payments to current claimants. That's been agonising for us," Mr Cooper told journalists.

"But in terms of our directors' duties we have had to take the action that we have taken."

In theory, the MRCF has enough money to last until April next year, but the directors could be breaching their duties if they continue to make compensation payouts in full and run down the pool of funds to zero.

Once the MRCF's money runs out, it will be faced with a shortfall of well over $1 billion.

That longer-term funding crisis is currently the subject of negotiations between James Hardie and unions.

The MRCF filed papers with the NSW Supreme Court to apply for provisional liquidation.

It's now up to the court to decide whether to appoint a provisional liquidator, which could potentially reduce payments to some claimants to make the funds last longer.

A hearing has been set down for Thursday next week.

However Mr Cooper said that situation could still be avoided if James Hardie provided "unencumbered, free money" to keep the MRCF operational.

In a last-ditch effort to save the foundation, a former James Hardie subsidiary known as ABN 60 on Wednesday night transferred $31.5 million to the MRCF's bank account.

James Hardie and ABN 60 both asserted that the money was given unconditionally, that is, the money was dropped into the bank account without the MRCF having to first agree to anything.

However Mr Cooper said the foundation would send the money back.

He said MRCF's legal advice was that to accept the money would mean the foundation would lose its ability to sue James Hardie in the future, because it remained under the original conditions of a document signed when the money was first locked away in 2001.

Mr Cooper said he understood the concerns of the more than 700 asbestos victims who have notified claims with the MRCF.

"Anyone who is suffering an asbestos disease, anyone who has got their claim in progress, they must be feeling really let down," Mr Cooper said.

"I just want to assure them that this is an action that we really have to take. We remain hopeful that some solution may emerge over the next few days."

Bernie Banton, from the Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia, said he was fed up with James Hardie.

"People are dying while James Hardie play games with this money," he said.

"They seem to have no heart."

However James Hardie chairman Meredith Hellicar said resolving the short-term crisis was not as easy as simply writing out a cheque.

She said such a move would first require shareholder approval.

"I think we have been completely clobbered by particular statements," Ms Hellicar told AAP.

"I'm astounded at the ability of people to automatically just call James Hardie a liar and assume that everybody else is playing straight."
