I have to give @MusterX credit for originally tipping me off to this several months ago. But yes, it's true. If you look through none other than founding father George Washington's letters that are stored in the Library of Congress you'll find the following: This is a page from a letter dated October 24, 1798 from George Washington to a Reverend Snyder. If you look at the top paragraph, you'll find the following text: Well that's pretty interesting, isn't it? The first President of the United States not only acknowledged the Illuminati but also spoke of the organization's nefarious plans. That is to say, that George Washington took the idea of the Illuminati seriously. So if in fact the "Doctrines of the Illuminati" had spread to the United States, in what way did they take root? What was the influence on American politics, both then and now? It's interesting to note that the dollar has the phrase "Novus Ordo Seclorum," which translates into "a new order of the ages": We know that the idea of a "New World Order" is often associated with the Illuminati and other secret societies who are bent on globalization and establishing a one-world government. With that in mind, are George Bush Sr's statements on a New World Order evidence for modern-day propagation of the Doctrines of the Illuminati that Washington was concerned about? After all, consider the following speech, given exactly 10 years to the day before the attack on the WTC (yes, that's right, 9/11/1991!), where Bush talks about "a big idea, a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause": So what do you think, Sherbros? What are we to make of George Washington's concerns, and is the Illuminati--or at least their doctrines--alive and well in the world today?
