Under the direct leadership of the Council of 13 is the Council of 33 or Grand Masters. These are 33 men, who are hand-picked from the highest levels of the Masonic Lodges of the Grand Orient, who have traversed beyond the 33rd degree of the Lodge. Nearly all Masons are unaware that anything exists beyond the 33rd degree, but deep within the esoteric lodge, there are actually 360 degrees which completes the circle. The 34th degree is know as "The Warrior On The Block". The word "block" refers to the black stone known as the "Kaaba", which they say is the stone of the sacred temple. (1) The 33 Grand Masters thus control the entire Masonic Lodge and as previously stated, most Masons do not even know what they are into. The numbers 13 and 33 are sacred in the occult and are popping up all of the time in the activities of government.
The ways in which the number 33 is used by the conspiracy could fill a book, but here are a few: Immediately following the 32nd President of the United States (Franklin D. Roosevelt-a 32nd degree Mason) came the 33rd President of the United States, who was a 33rd degree Mason. The Masonic House Of The Temple in Washington, D.C. has 33 pillars and each one is 33 feet high. Whitehouse protocol calls for 33 toe markers, where honored guests must stand for ceremonies. (2). Ross Perot withdrew his bid for the presidency in the 1992 election campaign and then re-entered the race exactly 33 days before election day, which allowed Clinton to win with a minority vote, just as Woodrow Wilson won, because Teddy Roosevelt started a third party known as the "Bull Moose" party. Pope John Paul I was assassinated exactly 33 days after becoming pope. John Paul I was outspoken against Freemasonry, and the current pope John Paul II is reported to be a Freemason. Whenever the members of the Masonic hierarchy see the number 33, they become excited, because it is a sign that they are in control. Incidentally, former President George Bush is reported to have worn a jersey with the number 33 on it, when he threw in the first baseball at the world series. The list could go on and on and the examples are far too many to be considered coincidental. In fact, to echo the very words of the late Franklin D. Roosevelt, "If it happens, it is because we planned it that way."
Another illustration to reveal to what extent the Illuminists will go to make their astrology and numerology work is the fact that according to astrology and numerology, there had to be a 39th President in office in the year 1976, which was the 200th anniversary of the United States on July 4th of that year. The number 39 is three 13's, and if a 39th President could be in the Whitehouse in 1976, it would indicate the beginning of the countdown toward the Age of Aquarius, the final thrust of which would be launched by financial manipulation 18 years later in 1994 (18 is three 6's). The problem that the Illuminati faced is that Richard Nixon was in the White House in 1974, and he was only the 37th President. How would they get a 39th President in only two years? Then, suddenly a number of things began to happen. Nixon's vice president Spiro T. Agnew was charged with tax violations and was forced to resign. This was the first time a vice president ever resigned. Then, because of a recently passed law, which was financed by Nelson A. Rockefeller, Gerald Ford was allowed to be appointed Vice President. It was not long until something called Watergate came up, which forced Nixon to resign from the presidency. This was the first time a President ever resigned. None of this had ever happened before. Thus, Gerald Ford became President number 38 in 1974 and Nelson Rockefeller became his Vice President. This is the first time in history that a President of the United States took office that was not elected. This allowed Jimmy Carter to become President number 39, and he was elected in 1976 for perfect timing with the astrological blueprint. -Source
