In February of 1937, on the eve of
the Second World War, a representative of the
Knights of Malta, an
American (still living as I write this in 1994), met with the more
esoteric leadership of the Third Reich in Germany. The meeting took
place in a hidden SS retreat, and was attended by General Karl
Haushofer, the senior initiate of the Black Lodge inside the German
The purpose of the meeting was to
“sell” the Nazi regime on contact with what the young Maltese Knight
called “the coming race”.
Asked by the present writer in
1979 what he meant by the term, he told me: “the
Ultraterrestrials, of course. The Germans had noted their ‘ghost
rockets’ in Sweden, and were aware of their power. Most of the older
Nazis present, though, were former members of the Thule Group or the
archaic Vril Society, and took me to be talking about Tibetans or Aryan
supermen or some such bunk. Except Haushofer, who knew better, and the
‘Man with the Green Gloves’ who, though supposedly a Tibetan himself,
was certainly an Ultraterrestrial.”
The deal fell through when the
Reich fell, and the Knights switched their attention elsewhere.
In the early 1950s U.S. President
Eisenhower unknowingly bought into a similar plan proposed by the
Knights of Malta to him on behalf of their Ultraterrestrial overlords,
in the name of the anticommunist crusade of that period.
“Deviants” were rounded up, and
unprecedented power was placed in the hands of the Military Industrial
infrastructure throughout the decade, until Eisenhower, in a surprise
farewell address, asserted his fundamental decency and libertarian
patriotism and roundly denounced the whole deal, paving the way for the
Kennedy era and a generation of progressive experimentation.
The Knights of Malta briefly found
themselves sudden outsiders. A bloody worldwide orgy of assassinations
and murders of progressive political and moral leaders quickly followed,
and by the 1980s the U.S. Administration was safely in the hands of an
aged ex-actor with degenerative Alzheimer’s Disease surrounded by a
staff nearly totally dominated by members of the
Knights of Malta. By
the 1990s the anticommunist pretense could be dropped, the confused and
restless citizenry disarmed, and the feeble opposition which remained
could be easily coopted.
But what of the occult societies
that had carried the flame for centuries? What of the UFOlogy,
conspiracy theory, metaphysical, and ‘White Lodge’ Masonic groups?
The Knights of Malta’s viewpoint
infiltrated organized occultism and UFOlogy through the connection
between William Dudley Pelley’s pro-Nazi Silver Shirts prior to World
War Two, and the occult Black Lodge within the Third Reich, centered in
the SS, the Ahnenerbe Society, and the appropriately named “Black Order”
-- descended from such black magical bodies as the Thule Group and the Vril Society as detailed in Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts.
“That rather lifeless system,
which contained some rather interesting Egyptian roots,” Bertiaux wrote,
“was really quite remarkable. It was the design for the computer and
energy system of what we might now be tempted to call something like a
UFO object or projection from some empirical or chaotic [occult power
zone]; but, which at that time, as strange as it might seem to the
uninformed reader of these matters, was posing rather inconspicuously as
an Egyptian Rite of Ancient Freemasonry with the name of ‘Memphis-Misraim’”.
