So, Ford was a top level Mason. Surpise, surprise. But there’s nothing to worry about. Even though you don’t know what a Mason is (90% of people on the street have not a single clue), and even though secretive Masons run the government, it isn’t any of your business, so move along, there’s nothing to see here, everything is going according to plan. Allow the criminal elite aristocracy to run the affairs of the world and keep paying your debts and taxes to the globalist banksters who are funding your demise. Everything will be perfect when you are living in the “freedom camps”, sedated, submissive and begging for a drink of water and a crumb of bread. So take your happy-pills and have a Happy New World Order.
“A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.” President Gerald Ford
