The title “Amen” emphasizes the common prefix and sometimes suffix, that was bestowed upon the names of Egyptain pharaohs in honor of the god Amun, also written “Amen”. Considering the consistent and blatant use of Egyptian symbolism in secret societies like Freemasonry, it is very interesting that most religious prayers are finalized with the word “Amen”. Essentially, ending all prayers with a respectful nod to the Egyptian god.
Deep in the redwoods forest of northern California lies a dark and strange encampment known as the Bohemian Grove. Started in 1878, the Grove became a retreat for the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men to practice drunken debauchery and bizarre rituals out of the scrutiny of media and the public eye. Rumors of politicians, media moguls, and even US presidents meeting in secret and performing peculiar pagan rituals and mock human sacrifices surrounded the Grove for over a century.
The “Cremation of Care” is a ceremony in which a mock human sacrifice is performed in the belly of a giant stone owl, representing the ancient Babylonian god “Moloch.” Bohemian Grovers argued that the Grove is a harmless retreat and that the owl figure is a random, meaningless character. However, this would seem highly coincidental since aerial photography has revealed that this supposed ‘random’ owl shape has also been meticulously laid out in the street plans of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. Seen from satellite imagery of the complex, it is plainly visible that the seat of US Congress eerily rests dead center in the belly of the ancient pagan owl god figure.
Probably one of the greatest mysteries of the modern world is one surrounding the bizarre space of air and sea between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and the southern tip of Florida…..the space known as the Bermuda Triangle.
A few years after the close of World War II a group of 5 Navy bombers disappeared during a routine training mission flying through the triangle. And soon after it spurred a continuous series of disappearances and bizarre incidents w/in this mysterious area. Blamed for countless disappearances of sea and aircraft, the triangle has been surmised to be a porthole in time, a strange source of electromagnetic anomalies or possibly a UFO abduction hot spot.
In an era of self-proclaimed “magicians” and “mystics” emerged a creepy, striking character from the dark Siberian regions of early 20th century Russia named Rasputin. Rumored to have demonstrated a series of supernatural powers in his early childhood, he went on to slowly rise to notoriety as a Russian Orthodox monk. As time progressed he gained a reputation for strange talents such as prophecy and healing and he soon was referred to in Russian circles as the “mad monk”. In the early 1900’s Rasputin was called on by Emperor Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra who’s son Alexei had become gravely ill with hemophilia.
Rasputin’s bizarre ability to heal the boy brought him so close to the Emperor of Russia that he was soon using his supposed powers of prophecy to consult the Tsar on major decisions of government. Feared because of his strange supernatural abilities and occult connections Rasputin was already a figure of much controversy, but his power over the ruling Tsar and Tsarista brought him a long list of desperate enemies. Several attempts on his life failed, including a stabbing that left his guts hanging out of his belly before being sewn up. It wasn’t until 1916 when a group of Russian nobles conspired to silence the man once and for all. The legends tell of Rasputin being poisoned by enough cyanide to kill 5 men but strangely going unaffected.
Determined to finish him off they shot him in the back several times, but the creepy madman refused to die. The group attacked the injured mystic and clubbed him into submission, castrated him and then tied his hands, rolled him up into a carpet and threw his body into the Neva River. But, incredibly, Rasputin broke out of his bindings, escaped the wet carpet and tried to swim to safety. But the frozen icy surface of the wintery river brought about his ultimate demise.
The Carousel Club is an old strip club in Dallas, Texas that has a bizarre and dark history.
In 1962 John F Kennedy was shot in Dealey Plaza by alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. A man with a very strange and curious past that tied him not only to military intelligence but also to the CIA and the FBI. After Oswald was captured and booked for Kennedy’s murder, he was held in a Dallas county jail house for nearly 2 days. He was then to be transferred from the police precinct to a more secure prison. But somehow, during the transfer in the underground parking structure of the Dallas police station, a supposedly secure location, a man stepped out from the crowd of policemen and TV reporters and shot Oswald in the stomach on live television. This man was Jack Ruby. A very interesting man in the Dallas underworld with connections to the Dallas mob, the Dallas police and also owner of the Carousel Club strip club. Immediately arrested for this very public murder, Jack Ruby spent the rest of his life in jail claiming that he had been forced to commit the crime and that he had inside information on Kennedy’s murder that connected men all the way to the white house to the murder. He also claimed that he had been injected with cancer by strange men while in prison….he eventually died in jail after being overcome by cancer.
Several years later, far away in Alabama, Martin Luther King was shot by yet another unlikely assassin, this time a man named James Earl Ray. As James fled the scene he drove through the night and eventually appeared in a hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. After receiving a tip, the FBI apprehended Ray and he was sentenced to life for the murder. Decades later, the first FBI agent on the scene who was the first to open James Earl Ray’s car after he was arrested claimed that he found a large stack of papers and files in the back seat of Ray’s car. One file had a phone number written on the top of it with the name “Jack” written below. He called the phone number and it turned out to be the number to Jack Ruby’s nightclub, The Carousel Club.
Strangely, these terrible assassinations of two of the greatest men of the time, which were supposed to have been committed by two lone nut assassins, both had a connection to one man back in Dallas. A man who claimed he was set up, that the assassination was organized by powerful men all the way up to the white house and who also died from cancer that he claimed had been given to him while in jail. One strange man named Jack Ruby and his nightclub named The Carousel Club.
