Star Wars goes to Illuminati dark side

The word “illuminati” is the plural form of the Latin word illuminatus, which means “enlightened.” The Oxford Dictionary defines “enlighten” as to “shed light” and to “give greater knowledge and understanding.”

With a capital “I,” the word Illuminati can refer to:

1. The Order of the Illuminati — a secret society founded in Bavaria by a German philosopher named Adam Weishaupt (1748–1830) during the European Enlightenment on May 1, 1776, to oppose “superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality.” Modeled on the Free Masons, the Bavarian Illuminati was outlawed 7 years later in 1785, but its critics believed the secret society had regrouped and masterminded the bloody French Revolution. [Source: Wikipedia]

2. In contemporary use, “Illuminati” mainly refers to a secret satanic elitist group that some (like writers Mark DiceDavid IckeTexe Marrs) say is linked to the original Bavarian Illuminati, which conspires to control world affairs by masterminding events and planting agents in government and corporations to establish a New World Order. This Illuminati is satanic, having the fallen angel Lucifer as their master. (The Old English origin of “Lucifer“ is Latin, meaning “morning star” or “light-bringing”. Lux or lucmeans “light”; -fer means “bearing”.)

Illuminati Symbols

In popular culture, the eye and the pyramid — or the eye inside a pyramid — are said to be iconic symbols of the Illuminati.

Whether or not the eye and the pyramid were symbols of the historical Bavarian Illuminati, they unquestionably are used today to symbolize the conspiratorial NWO Illuminati — what Vigilant Citizen calls “the occult elite”. By intentional design, both symbols — especially the one eye — are employed by many Hollywood pop culture entertainers like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and TV shows like Pretty Little Liars.

Below is an example — Beyonce flashing the sign of the one-eye-in-pyramid, with her satanist husband Jay-Z. (go to Vigilant Citizen for more pics).


Now comes pictorial evidence that the new Star Wars movie that already has record advanced ticket sales although it won’t debut in cinemas until December 14, has gone to the Illuminati dark side.

Vigilant Citizen reports, Nov. 5, 2015, that “Disney released five character posters promoting the highly anticipated movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. All five of them prominently feature the one-eye sign, indicating that the movie is part of the elite’s Agenda.”

Vigilant Citizen points out that the Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in 2012, and therefore can mold the planned three new Star Wars movies to its liking, and that:

Knowing Disney, its ramifications and its elite ties, you better believe that the “messages” in these new movies will closely conform to the occult elite’s Agenda. The new character posters released by Disney are early proof of this fact. Every one of them – the good guys and bad guys – feature one eye clearly hidden by a weapon. No matter what side they’re on, they’re owned by the elite.

In my series of articles Symbolic Pics of the Month, I regularly highlight the one-eye sign in popular culture as its omnipresence reflects the stronghold of the occult elite has on mass media. It is their sign. In the case of Star Wars, things take giant proportions due to the extreme anticipation of the new movie, the series’ massive fan base and the fact that die-hard fans will embrace every piece of media associated with the movie. In short, it is yet another step into turning popular culture into one big tool of propaganda for the occult elite.

J J Abrams

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is directed, co-produced and co-written by J. J. Abrams. On October 10, 2015, Abrams hosted a “$33,400 a ticket” fundraiser in his home for the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee, in which Obama talked “passionately” about the need for gun control. The fundraiser raised over $750,000. (Breitbart).

Abrams is an observant Jew who’s married to an Irish Catholic woman. He said, “I do consider myself Jewish, and I take my kids to services on holidays because that is something really important to me.” (Jewish Journal)

The chairman and CEO of Walt Disney Company is Robert Allen “Bob” Iger, 64, who “was born to a Jewish family, in New York city, New York.” Iger’s wife, his second marriage, is also a Roman Catholic. (Wikipedia)

For Tolkien fans: Real life counterparts of Hobbiton & Minas Tirith reports, Oct. 23, 2015, that illustrator Pauline Baynes recently discovered a map of Middle-earth drawn and annotated by J.R.R. Tolkien himself.

The Guardian reports that Baynes found the map loose in a copy of The Lord of the Rings. The map has “copious” notes made by Tolkien in green ink and pencil, as well as Baynes’ own notes.

Blackwell’s, which is currently exhibiting the map in Oxford and selling it for £60,000, called it “an important document, and perhaps the finest piece of Tolkien ephemera to emerge in the last 20 years at least”.

According to Blackwell’s, the map displays “the exacting nature” of Tolkien and his creative process. He fixes names, gives additional names and reveals details such as Hobbiton “is assumed to be approx at latitude of Oxford,” where Tolkien was a professor.

Blackwell’s also claims that Tolkien wrote “the city of Ravenna is the inspiration behind Minas Tirith – a key location in the third book of the Lord of The Rings trilogy.”

Minas Tirith is the city-capital of Gondor.

The city of Ravenna is located in northern Italy on the Adriatic coast between Milan and Rome.

Here’s a pic of Ravenna. It certainly resembles Minas Tirith!

New Star Wars movie accused of anti-white black activism

Are you a Star Wars fan-geek?

Would you watch a new Star Wars movie with this black man, actor John Boyega, as a Jedi knight and Luke Skywalker-like hero?

John Boyega in new Star Wars

That’s what appears to be the case in the new J. J. Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that will open in U.S. theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.

Watch and hear Boyega beginning at the 0:37 mark of the movie’s trailer: “I was raised to do one ting [sic], but I’ve got nothing to fight for . . . I’m a Jedi.”

Douglas Ernst writes for WND, Oct. 29, 2015:

Director J.J. Abrams’ political activism has prompted online fans to boycott “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for being anti-white.

The hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII exploded on Twitter Monday, just hours before the release of a new trailer…. The reason: Abrams’ movie is allegedly a dream come true for race activists.

“#BoycottStarWarsVII because it is anti-white propaganda promoting #whitegenocide,” an account called End Cultural Marxism said. “A friend in L.A. said #StarWarsVII is basically ‘[Black Lives Matter activist Deray Mckesson] in Space.’ Jewish activist JJ Abrams is an anti-white nut.”

The Hollywood Reporter found a tweet by a user identified as Captain Confederacy saying, “[Social Justice Warriors] complain about White artists ‘misappropriating’ culture created by blacks but then celebrate a non-White Star Wars.”

“It’s nothing more than a social justice propaganda piece that alienates it’s core audience of young white males,” another user tweeted, the website reported.

The new “Star Wars” movie features a diverse cast, including star John Boyega. When fans questioned how the British actor, who is black, could be a stormtrooper in November 2014, the actor responded, “Get used to it,” Nov. 29, 2014, on Instagram.

“This is going to melt your brain, but you need to know … James Earl Jones voiced Vader and Lando is black,” popular YouTube film critic Jeremy Jahns responded Monday to the #BoycottStarWarsVII hashtag.

Fears that Abrams would infuse his own brand of political activism into projects are not unfounded. His last movie, “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” was described by one of the film’s star actors, Benedict Cumberbatch, as commentary on the presidency of George W. Bush.

“The whole theme of the film, a backbone without it being in your face and preachy, there’s a massive sort of comment about post-Bush/Cheney era foreign policy and the legacy from that,” Cumberbatch said at the movie’s premier, the New York Post reported May 22, 2013.

Director Abrams also just helped raise $750,000 for the Democratic Party at a fundraiser at his Pacific Palisades, California, home.

The Oct. 10 event, which President Obama attended, cost attendees $33,400 per ticket, Deadline Hollywood reported.

So, will you buy tickets to watch the new Star Wars?


Watch a lump of body tissue react to Mozart!

Clearly, it’s not a disposable “lump of tissue” as body tissue and organs don’t react to music, specifically Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major).

But that’s what pro-aborts would have us think.

It’s a human baby.

Only a person reacts to Mozart’s sublime music. A person just like you and me, only smaller and desperately dependent on the mother’s womb — for a while.

NASA’s “Blue Marble” Earth is a fake

When we think of Earth, this iconic image of the “Blue Marble” immediately comes to mind.

NASA BLue Marble 1972 from Apollo 17 small

We’ll call the above image “Blue Marble I”.

From Wikipedia:

The Blue Marble is a famous photograph of the Earth, taken on December 7, 1972, by the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft, at a distance of about 45,000 kilometers (28,000 miles). It is one of the most iconic, and among the most widely distributed images in human history….

The image is one of the few to show an almost fully illuminated Earth disk (slightly gibbous), as the astronauts had the Sun behind them when they took the image. To the astronauts, Earth had the appearance and size of a glass marble, hence the name.

The photograph was taken about 5 hours and 6 minutes after launch of the Apollo 17 mission, and about 1 hour 54 minutes after the spacecraft left its parking orbit around the Earth, to begin its trajectory to the Moon.

Or maybe that’s not the Blue Marble you have in mind. Maybe it’s this iconic image of a more vividly-colored Blue Marble which was released by NASA in 2002. Let’s call it “Blue Marble II”.

NASA Blue Marble 2002

Blue Marble II is so familiar to us in part because it was the default image on the first iPhone.

Blue Marble on iPhone

But some sharp-eyed geeks discovered “anomalies” in Blue Marble II, specifically duplicate clouds, as you can see in a cropped section of Blue Marble II (below):

2002 Blue Marble anomalies

The discovery of duplicate clouds has led to accusations that not only is the 2002 image (Blue Marble II) a fake, the original Apollo 17 image (Blue Marble I) was likely a fake as well. That, in turn, has led some to question whether everything NASA did and said was fake. See, for example, this post from Plane Not A Planet blog.

The problem is that, in the years after the first Blue Marble photo was taken by Apollo 17, NASA has released many Blue Marbles, “Blue Marble II” being one of the best known and most popular.

As NASA explains about the 2002 “Blue Marble II”:


  • Data Date: February 8, 2002
  • Visualization Date: February 8, 2002

This spectacular “blue marble” image is the most detailed true-color image of the entire Earth to date. Using a collection of satellite-based observations, scientists and visualizers stitched together months of observations of the land surface, oceans, sea ice, and clouds into a seamless, true-color mosaic of every square kilometer (.386 square mile) of our planet. These images are freely available to educators, scientists, museums, and the public.

Much of the information contained in this image came from a single remote-sensing device-NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, or MODIS. Flying over 700 km above the Earth onboard the Terra satellite, MODIS provides an integrated tool for observing a variety of terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric features of the Earth. The land and coastal ocean portions of these images are based on surface observations collected from June through September 2001 and combined, or composited, every eight days to compensate for clouds that might block the sensor’s view of the surface on any single day…. The cloud image is a composite of two days of imagery collected in visible light wavelengths and a third day of thermal infra-red imagery over the poles. Global city lights, derived from 9 months of observations from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program, are superimposed on a darkened land surface map.

In other words, rendered in simple English, NASA is saying that the 2002 “Blue Marble II” is not a photo. Instead, the image is a COMBINATION and COMPOSITE of many “satellite-based observations” (whatever that means), which were “stitched together” (whatever that means) by scientists and “visualizers” (whatever that means).

In other words, Blue Marble II is a fake — which would explain the duplicate clouds.

Here’s an admission by Robert Simmon, one of the “visualizers” who “stitched together” Blue Marble II, as related by David Yanofsky in his March 27, 2014 article for Quartz, “The guy who created the iPhone’s Earth image explains why he needed to fake it“:

As it turns out, much of what one might assume about this beautiful image is not true…. It isn’t actually a photograph of earth. And that blackness surrounding it? That’s not space, either….

Simmon, a data-visualizer and designer at NASA’s Earth Observatory, created the image in 2002. He told Quartz it’s not a photograph, but a sophisticated visualization. 

Images of the earth may seem commonplace, but there are actually very few pictures of the entire planet. The problem, Simmon said, is all the NASA earth-observing satellites are in low-earth or geostationary orbit, meaning none of them are far enough away to see a full hemisphere. The most familiar pictures of the entire Earth are from the 1960s and 1970s Apollo missions to the moon.

As realistic as it looks, the image is a composite of four months of light data collected in 2,300 km (1,429 mi) wide bands as NASA’s Terra satellite orbited from pole to pole, and the earth rotated beneath it.

That data was then stitched together and applied to the surface of a digital ball, then modified in Photoshop.

Simmon readily admits there are numerous fakeries in his image. The atmosphere is Photoshop blur. Some of the clouds are collaged together using Photoshop’s clone tool to cover gaps in the satellite’s coverage. The black area around the earth is not the void of space. It is simply a background of black color that Simmon placed the earth on top of. (This is standard practice, Simmon says: most actual “photographs” of the earth—including the Apollo images—present the planet on a black background).

Without these alterations, the image wouldn’t look very earth-like. Simmon said he based his manipulations on reality, “in the sense that I’ve looked at a lot of imagery to see how thick should that be, how blue should that be.” But, he later added, “It’s more hyper-realistic than realistic.”

“Without these alterations, the image wouldn’t look very earth-like.”

That’s a doozy of a sentence, because our visual images of earth all came from NASA in the first place as none of us has flown into space to actually see the entire Earth.

Given the admission that Blue Marble II is a fake, we have every reason to wonder about other NASA fakeries and lies, such as the 1986 Challenger explosion (see “Are the crew members of 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger still alive?”) and whether those photos taken on the Moon are real.


Your Guardian Angel’s Day

Guardian Angel

Today is the feast day of our Guardian Angels!

A 2007 Harris poll found that 74% of U.S. adults believed in angels.

The word “angel,” in Greek is angelos, in Hebrew is malach, in Arabic is mala’ika– which all mean “messenger.”

Angels are incorporeal (bodiless) spiritual beings who act as intermediaries between God and humanity. Angels are defined by their function as message-bearers, although this function does not exhaust their activities. As spirits, they are believed to have been created by God to serve the supreme deity by fulfilling any and all tasks assigned to them.

St. Thomas Aquinas maintained that each Angel is unique, a species unto itself — a truly mind-boggling idea. That means each Angel is an individual, with his own personality and quirks. This may explain why some guardian angels are pro-active, while others are not.

Major philosophers — such as the great medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), René Descartes, John Locke, and most recently, the American philosopher Mortimer Adler — have put forth compelling reasoning for the existence of Angels. (For the conversion of Adler, a Jew, to the Catholic faith, see the moving account, “A Philosopher-Pagan Comes Home“.)

Scripture tells us there is a hierarchy of Angels — there are various gradations or “orders” of Angels. We know this because in Genesis 3:24, Isaiah 6:1-7, Ezekiel 1, 10, Romans 8:38, Ephesians 1:21, 3:10, 6:12, Colossians 1:16, 2:10, 2:15, allusions are made to “seraphim,” “cherubim,” “thrones,” “dominions,” “mights,” “powers,” and “principalities” in the “heavenly places.”

Aquinas and other theologians say ​there are nine orders of angels, but only the last five angelic orders (Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, Angels) minister to bodily creatures and, of them, only the last three minister to human beings. That, of course, suggests two angelic orders — those of Virtues and Powers — minister to nonhuman bodily creatures, including animals whom St. Bonaventure called “creatures without sin.” Isn’t that a happy thought? — that our pets also have angels?

  • Principalities are in charge of the whole of humanity — of nations or countries.
  • Archangels minister to nations — their leaders and those persons whom God tasks with special work to do on earth.
  • Angels, the last order, are God’s messengers and guardians of individual human beings.

How do we know each of us has a guardian angel?

Because Jesus tells us so!

“See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10)

According to St. Thomas Aquinas, a guardian angel is appointed by God’s loving providence to each human being from the moment of birth because “the dignity of human souls is great.”

Throughout the lives of “changeable and fallible” human beings, their guardian angels assist them toward goodness. Although the guardians never fail or forsake their human charges, they eschew interfering with divine providence or with our free will—to commit sin if we so choose, to endure trials and troubles, and to suffer punishment.

When I see a drunk or derelict sleeping on a bus bench or curled up in a street corner, I can’t help but wonder how very sad their guardian angels must be. Imagine what it must be like to be the guardian angel of a serial killer . . . .

St. Thomas also wrote that at the end of a human being’s earthly life, the guardian angel of the virtuous person will be replaced with an angelic companion because the guardian’s mission will have been successfully discharged. The wicked in Hell, however, “will have a fallen angel to punish him” for eternity. [Source: Msgr. Paul J. Glenn, A Tour of the Summa (Rockford, Illinois: Tan Books, 1978), p. 93.]

Just because we can’t see them doesn’t mean our guardian angels aren’t with us all the time. In fact, there are many stories of angelic encounters and assistance. See, for example:

You’ll find more angel stories on FOTM’s “Angels & Saints” page,

My days are so busy with blogging and house- and garden-work that the only time when my mind is at rest is when I’m taking my solitary walk in the hills. On one such walk, I talked to my guardian angel and humbly asked him to show me he’s there. Instantaneously, I felt his presence walking alongside me, to my right. I can’t tell you what he looks like (he is a bodiless spirit after all), but what I felt was his staggeringly-profound LOVE — a love that is unconditional and wholly unearned, the depths of which I’ve never experienced from a human.

Here’s a simple prayer to our guardian angels, by St. Bonaventure (1221-1274):

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom His Love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard,
to rule and guide. Amen.

Talk to your Guardian Angel!

He loves you very very much, more than you’ll ever know.

And thank your Guardian Angel today and every day — for watching over and protecting you, and for loving you in spite of ourselves. 


A Day of Archangels

Today is the Feast Day of the Archangels!

September 29 traditionally was set aside as the Feast Day of St. Michael the Archangel. (The word “saint” simply means “holy.”) Then the Church made it the feast day of all the Archangels.

Three Angels are named in the Bible:

  1. Michael
  2. Gabriel: in Hebrew, the name means “God is my might”
  3. Raphael: in Hebrew, the name means “God has healed”

Notice that all three names end with “El” — which means God, in Hebrew. Thus, each Archangel’s name ending in “el” means they are “of God.”

Archangel Gabriel appears to Mary
The Annunciation by Sandro Botticelli, 1485

The word “angel,” in Greek is angelos; in Hebrew is malach; in Arabic is mala’ika — which all mean “messenger.”

Angels are incorporeal (bodiless) spiritual beings who act as intermediaries between God and humanity. Angels are defined by their function as messengers or message-bearers, although this function does not exhaust their activities because they were created by God to serve the supreme deity by fulfilling any and all tasks assigned to them.

In other words, being an angel or messenger simply denotes one of their functions, not their nature. St. Thomas Aquinas maintained that each angel is unique, a species unto itself — truly a mind-boggling idea.

Major philosophers — such as Thomas Aquinas, René Descartes, John Locke, and most recently, the American philosopher Mortimer Adler — have put forth compelling reasons for the existence of Angels. (For the conversion of Adler, a Jew, to the Catholic faith, see the moving account, “A Philosopher-Pagan Comes Home.)

Theologians maintain there is a hierarchy of Angels, due to the fact that in Genesis 3:24, Isaiah 6:1-7, Ezekiel 1, 10, Romans 8:38, Ephesians 1:21, 3:10, 6:12, Colossians 1:16, 2:10, 2:15, allusions are made to “seraphim,” “cherubim,” “thrones,” “dominions,” “mights,” “powers,” and “principalities” in the “heavenly places.”

Dionysius and St. Thomas Aquinas delineated three hierarchies of Angels, with each hierarchy comprised of three orders:

  • 1st hierarchy: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones.
  • 2nd hierarchy: Dominions, Virtues, Powers.
  • 3rd hierarchy: Principalities, Archangels, Angels.

Of the nine angelic orders, five are sent by God for external ministry among bodily creatures, as indicated by their names of Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels—all of which refer to some kind of administrative or executive office. Of these five orders, only the last three minister to human beings, which suggests Virtues and Powers minister to other bodily creatures, including all the non-human animals whom St. Bonaventure called “creatures without sin”!

  • Principalities are in charge of the whole of humanity.
  • Archangels minister to nations — their leaders and those persons whom God tasks with special work to do on Earth.
  • Angels, the last order, are God’s messengers to and guardians of individual human beings.

The name “Lucifer” means “Morning Star,” “Son of the Dawn,” or “Light Carrier.” For that reason, theologians believe that Lucifer was a high-order Angel, most likely the highest order — a Seraphim. Aquinas thought him to be “probably the highest of all the angels.” But Lucifer admires and loves himself more than his Creator and thinks himself to be “as God.” And so, swollen with narcissism and grandiosity, Lucifer rebelled, taking a third of the angelic beings with him.

StMichaelTheArchangelBut, a lower-order Angel, full of courage and love of God, rallied together two-thirds of the angelic ranks against the apostates, in the First War that began the enduring conflict between good and evil:

Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it. (Revelation 12:7-9)

That braveheart’s name is Micha-el, which means “Who is like God?”

I like to think “Who is like God?” is Micha-el‘s battle cry . . . .

St. Michael the Archangel is believed to be the captain or prince of the heavenly armies and the most beloved of all the Angels. He is mentioned in Daniel 10:13,31; 12:1 (where he is said to be the prince of the people of Israel); in Jude 9 (where he is said to have disputed with the devil about the body of Moses); and in Revelation 12:7 (where he is said to have led the heavenly armies against those of the great dragon).

Described in Revelation 10:1 as a “mighty angel…with a halo around his head; his face was like the sun and his feet were like pillars of fire,” St. Michael is generally portrayed by artists as wearing full armor and carrying a sword or lance, with his foot on the neck of a dragon. (Pictures of the martyred St. George are often similar, but only Micha-el has wings.)

michaelfrMichael has four main titles or offices. He is:

  • Patron of the Chosen People in the Old Testament.
  • Patron saint and defender of the Church.
  • The Angel of death, who assists Jesus in the final judgment (thus, Michael is sometimes depicted with a scale).
  • Leading the good angels against the fallen angels or demons. For that reason, Christians consider St. Michael the most powerful defender of God’s people against evil. As such, Michael is also the patron saint of soldiers and policemen. (For the Prayer to St. Michael, go here.)

All of which is why St. Michael the Archangel — the Braveheart of Angels — is my most favorite saint, whom I admire and love with all my heart. He is my captain. As you can see from this blog’s masthead, he is also the protector of Fellowship of the Minds.

Happy Feast Day, St. Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael!

Thank you for inspiring us with your humility, courage, goodness, and love for God.

Thank you, God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, for creating the marvelous Angels!
