The Babylonian Ishtar, Imperial Rome’s goddess Libertas was Papal Rome’s “MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” and the template for America’s Statue of Liberty.

One of the many proofs of Freemasonry’s cult of liberty, and furthermore of its deep influence upon our culture and mentality, is the Statue of Liberty. This colossus in New York’s harbor was conceived by Freemasons, financed by Freemasons, built by Freemasons, and installed by Freemasons in a Freemasonic ceremony. The poem about “the huddled masses” inscribed on its base was written by American Jewess, Emma Lazarus.

The maker of the statue was Freemason Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi. He had already made a statue of the Freemason Marquis de Lafayette for the city of New York, for the occasion of the centenary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Bartholdi sailed to America, at the suggestion of other Freemasons and kindred spirits in France, for the purpose of proposing the project. Although he had no drawings as he set sail, his Masonic biographer writes, as he entered New York harbor, “he caught a vision of a magnificent goddess (Nimrod’s Semiramis — Isis or Astarte), holding aloft a torch (of Illuminism) in one hand and welcoming all visitors to the land of freedom and opportunity” (signifying Brotherhood control of the American people by the “liberties” perpetrated against them).

Returning to France, he managed to raise, through the help of a great deal of Masonic propaganda, the sum of 3,500,000 French francs, a very large sum for the 1870′s. For the face of his “Goddess of Liberty” he chose his own mother.

Structural framework was provided by Freemason Gustave Eiffel, later to be famous for the 984-feet (300-meter) high Eiffel Tower. Although financial support for the statue was forthcoming in France, America was not willing to put up the money for the pedestal. It was Joseph Pulitzer, the owner

and editor of the New York World, who managed to raise over $100,000 for the project.

On Washington’s Birthday in 1877, Congress accepted the statue as a gift from the French people. Bedloe’s Island, now Liberty Island, was chosen by General Sherman, the well-known Atlanta-burner. Meanwhile in Paris the work gradually progressed. Levi P. Morton, the then Ambassador to France, drove the first rivet. The statue was finished on May 21, 1884, and presented to Ambassador Levi Morton on July 4th of the same year by Ferdinand de Lesseps, builder of the Suez canal.

On the American side, the chairman of the American committee to receive the statue contacted the Grand Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York. It had been a tradition in America to have the cornerstone of major public and private buildings and monuments “consecrated” with full Masonic rites, ever since Freemason George Washington, in 1793, had personally laid the cornerstone of the Capitol, with the assistance of the Grand Lodge of Maryland.

The cornerstone of the Washington Monument, inscribed “Joseph Pulitzer, Russian immigrant and Jew.” was also laid in a Masonic ceremony. The ceremony was set for August 5, 1884. It poured rain.

The decorated vessel ‘Bay Ridge’ carried about a hundred Freemasons, along with some civil officials, to Bedloe’s Island. Freemason Richard M. Hunt, the principal architect of the pedestal, handed the working tools to the Masonic officers.

Then Freemason Edward M.,L. Ehlers, Grand Secretary and a member of the Continental Lodge 287, read the list of items to be included in the copper box within the cornerstone: a copy of the United States Constitution; George Washington’s Farewell Address; twenty bronze medals of Presidents up through Chester A. Arthur [including Washington, Monroe, Jackson, Polk, Buchanan, Johnson and Garfield, who were all Freemasons]; copies of New York City newspapers; a portrait of Bartholdi; a copy of ‘Poem on Liberty’ by E. R. Johnes; and a list on parchment of the Grand Lodge officers.

The traditional Masonic ceremony was observed. The cornerstone being found square, level and plumb, the Grand Master applied the mortar and had the stone lowered into place. He then struck the stone three times, and declared it duly laid. Then the elements of “consecration” were presented, corn, wine, and oil.

The “Most Worshipful” Grand Master then spoke a few words. He posed the question: “Why call upon the Masonic Fraternity to lay the cornerstone of such a structure as is here to be erected?”

His answer was: “No institution has done more to promote liberty and to free men from the trammels and chains of ignorance and tyranny than has Freemasonry.”

The principal address was given by the Deputy Grand Master: “Massive as this statue is, its physical proportions sink into comparative obscurity when contrasted with the nobility of its concept. Liberty Enlightening the World! How lofty the thought! To be free, is the first, the noblest aspiration of the human breast. And it is now a univally admitted truth that only in proportion as men become possessed of liberty, do they become civilized, enlightened and useful.”

The statue arrived in dismantled pieces in June of 1885. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886. President Grover Cleveland [who although sympathetically disposed toward the craft was not a Freemason] presided over the ceremony and Freemason Henry Potter, Episcopal Bishop of New York gave the invocation. Freemason Bartholdi pulled the tricolor French flag off the statue’s face. The main address was given by Freemason Chauncey M. Depew, a United States Senator.

      This is why our country , people and government is in such ruin and chaos. The fact that we place images of idol gods to oversee our lives instead of the one true GOD. When one says the “pledge of allegiance,” he had better stop and think: what or who am I pledging allegiance to ?

      • 7 Bill August 15, 2011 at 3:20 am

        Oh please, get over it already. To “oversee our lives”. You are probably in favor of abolishing Halloween too.

    • 11 Anonymous September 30, 2010 at 12:28 am

      not really nonsense when u add the masses of free mason evil togeter if you dont believe do some real research

      • 12 frank kellam July 7, 2011 at 12:30 pm

        Whenever, secret societies govern, it is like the devil throwing stones and then hiding his hands. It is amazing how the masonic ritual for the statue of liberty resembles the one that was done for the placement of the articles in the “Ark of The Covenant.” Makes one wonder if these so called people think of themselves as gods.

    it’s like the world is going for destruction

  9. 14 Beau August 18, 2010 at 4:34 am

    This is barely accurate. All this free mason involvement is a bunch of nonsense. Sure masons were part of the pedestal construction, but this is way over the top. I have done a great deal of research in the Statue and the way you misconstrue her is malicious.

    Your obsession with the involvement of Freemasons and Jews and followers of “Illuminism” in the creating, giving, and dedication of the Statue of Liberty reveals a prejudiced and divisive spirit that is in no way representative of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as we know that God through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for the sins of all people. Yes, Freemasonry has been utilized by some people over the centuries to gather and assert power against religious and political authorities they considered to be oppressive; but Freemasons also have built places like the Masonic Children’s Hospital in Chicago, where even children whose families can’t pay for their medical care can get treatment at no cost. My father was a Freemason who served in the United States Navy during World War II; and a more responsible, honest and devoted father, husband, American citizen and Christian you would have a hard time finding. Your demonizing of all Freemasons and Freemasonry, if one believes the insights of psychoanalyst Carl Jung – which I do – reveals a demon that possesses you, which, in order to deny your own demon, you project out onto others by whom you feel threatened. Jesus told us not to judge others for the mote in their eye until we had first taken the log out of our own. I pray you will see the log in your own eye and take advantage of Christ’s help to remove it before it’s too late to do so.

    It would be easier if all of us could set aside religious and cultural skirmishes and be able to see one another.
    It will be necessary to remind our conscious minds that we weren’t actually anointed by God as divine vessels of His wisdom.

    We can acknowledge high ideals, nobly expressed, as sincere because we wish them to be and seek peace.
    Or we can find reasons not to acknowledge that we surely got sidetracked and thus maintain the status quo.

    We all struggle for this life to make sense. Our ancestors were probably at times just as mixed up as we are, found themselves plodding along, not being able to see an end to the row. Something caused them to look up and see another way to “See” their fellow human beings.

    We can ignore these founders, decide they were members of a group we “don’t like”. We can shake our heads in wonder that these “elite idealists” ever got anything accomplished, much less found a new country. I mean obviously they got the bit wrong where poor people were to be considered on a level with the wealthy.
    After all, what did they ever do except work for the wealthy..and yeah, well, were in fact the reason some men wound up much better heeled than they. But that wasn’t ” taking advantage”–oh my, no.
    That ‘s just the way the free enterprise system works, see? Some will make a lot of money off the labors of others, and some will live a life of labor.

    I believe what troubles our country most is two versions of a single question:

    How have we managed to go so far astray from the ideals upon which that country was founded?
    or,
    Is everything we thought was true about freedom in America a lie?

    and whose fault is that? and what do I need to do about it?
    And what part is my fault?

    • 18 usualsuspect427 August 4, 2011 at 12:13 am

      Okay, sorry, I got carried away – that was more than two questions. But bottom line, when DID we buy into this “whoever has the most toys wins” mentality? Do we think God would approve of the dog eat dog” state of the world we have created?
      And if not, how can we dare to rummage through the content of His holy books and find what supports OUR theories and discard the rest as “irrelevant” ?

  12. 19 Ph August 14, 2011 at 1:54 am

    All the thongs going wrong in the world:
    Money
    Greed
    Power
    Wealth
    Monopolies
    Religions
    Resources
    Evil over good
    DNA revolution

    The world is finished unless we stop playing with God.

    For some reason even my iPhone doesn’t automatically use a capital G for God. But it does for my name.

    I’ll say no more

    Basically the world is finished unless we end

  13. 20 NastyDog August 14, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    LOL like we are supposed to be scared of this BS. Michelle BACHMANN may get elected in 2012, that will trump any of this nonesense. The irony is u freaks probably don’t vote…

Adams in Patriotic Mode

“What do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.” John Adams
