ASK 13 people about the Freemasons and you’ll get 33 different opinions. Are they a Luciferian cult that’s been plotting world domination for centuries, or are they just a fraternal group that likes to hang out together, volunteer in their communities, and drive funny little cars in parades?
Our guest tonight has researched the roots of Freemasonry and the Craft’s influence on the United States. Peter Levenda, author of the new book The Secret Temple: Masons, Mysteries, and the Founding of America, discussed the history, rituals, and symbols of Freemasonry, the brotherhood’s connection to groups like Scientology, Theosophy, and the Mormons, and why it all matters.
THIS WEEKEND marks the 40th anniversary of the brutal Manson family Tate/LaBianca slayings, so it seemed appropriate to bring back another foundational interview with Peter Levenda, author of the three-volume set Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft.
As we read Levenda’s work, we realized that Sinister Forces — and indeed, American history since World War II — is essentially the six degrees of Charles Manson.
WE’RE GETTING ready for company in the bunker tonight, so we present a foundational interview from the archives. In June of 2006, Derek talked with Peter Levenda, author of the three-volume set Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft about his research into the occult theology of the Nazis.
