Brother Gerald Ford, 33rd degree Mason of the Shrine

John Ratcliff | Dec 28, 2006 


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

  1. To PW,

    You may complain about our goverment if you want to. You have freedom to leave, also.

    The Masonic Order gives about a Million Dollears aday to Many charities a day to fix childern, how ever they don’t publicise it. So may it be.

  2. It would be nice if someone wanted to expose the Masonic Order itself; i.e., degrees of what or to what exactly. Maybe this has been done already; I’m not aware.

  4. To honor our fallen Brother, former President Gerald R Ford, 33rd Degree Master Mason, fellow Brethren from the Washington DC area gathered at Naval Lodge No. 4 at 330 Pennsylvania Ave SE Washington DC Sunday December 31st at 10:30am and walked together to the U.S. Capitol rotunda. We walled about three blocks from Naval Lodge No. 4 to the U.S. Capitol stopping briefly in front of the Capitol at the statue of former President and Brother James A. Garfield and there gave a sort speech. Then we made our way through a one hour wait inline passing through security check points then into the rotunda where Brother Ford was ling in state. One by one we gave our respect and honors to our fallen Brother.

    Remember, Hitler had the Grand Lodge of Germany executed because they wouldn’t give in to him. Masons are not some evil order. They aren’t a secret society, they have secrets. There is a difference. This message is in memory of all the Brothers who kept their vows even unto death.
