Revisiting John Todd: “Rothschilds Rule with Druid Witches”

Henry Makow

John Todd (1950-2007) ranks with Svali and Benjamin Freedman as one of the most important Illuminati defectors.

Recently I was surprised to discover the amount and quality of Todd testimony easily accessible on youtube.

I listened to a lecture he gave on witchcraft and the Illuminati and was rudely reminded of the extent our society is saturated by the occult . Here are some points from this lecture worth reiterating:

The Illuminati, witchcraft and the occult are basically synonymous. They are characterized by a hatred of Christianity.  The rites of initiation of Freemasonry and Witchcraft are identical except the initiate in Witchcraft is naked and his wrist is cut.  The Rothschild family is at the head of the Illuminati – they are the Illuminati Holy Trinity combined, with the Pope thrown in. The capstone will be placed on the pyramid when a Rothschild becomes the Messiah or anti-Christ. The evil eye in the capstone is Lucifer.  The Rothschilds appoint a family to run each country. In the US, it is the Rockefellers. Every President since Woodrow Wilson has been a member of the Illuminati. Politicians take their orders from witches who report to the Rothschilds. Phillipe de Rothschild was the head honcho until his death in 1988.  Roughly 130 teenage girls were satanic ritual sacrificed in Los Angeles in an average year in the 1970’s; the police classified these as “murder rapes.” Movie “The Dunwich Horror” (1970) and “Star Wars” (1977) were inspired by witchcraft. “The Force” is an occult concept.

Below is an article containing more of Todd’s revelations. After that are links to articles trying to discredit him. Although there may be discrepancies, the fact Todd was framed and died in custody (in 1979 or in 2007 depending on the account) is all the proof I need. Be sure to listen to the curious “John Todd’s Message from Prison.”   

A collection of his lectures and other info can be found here. 

By Henry Makow Ph.D. 
(from Oct 30, 2007) A “Grand Druid Council” of 13 “Witches” control the Illuminati, and meets eight times annually on the “Witches’ Sabbaths” (incl. Halloween) when millions of occult practitioners engage in orgies, which sometimes involve human sacrifice.My source is John Todd, the highest Illuminati defector in history, a Witch High Priest, a member of the Council of Thirteen, and part of the Collins Illuminati bloodline that brought Witchcraft to the US in the 17th Century.He casts the Illuminati as a vast, highly organized and powerful occult conspiracy that holds mankind in a satanic vice.The Illuminati are “thousands of conspiracies operating in parallel,” he says. For example, the vows and initiation rites of witchcraft closely mirror Freemasonry.

His name is John Todd (also Cristopher Kollyns). In 1972, when Todd was “saved,” and exposed the Illuminati, he ruled a 13-state US region consisting of 5000 covens, i.e. totaling 65,000 priests and priestesses. That’s just the ministers, not the congregation.

This champion of humanity would be unknown today but for a website maintained by “James”, an American living in Japan, and another belonging to the redoubtable Wes Penre.

Skeptics say that if the Illuminati were real, there would be defectors. There are plenty of defectors; clinics that deal with CIA mind control and satanic ritual abuse are full of them.

But the vocal ones get put away. In 1987, Todd was framed for rape and sentenced to 30 years. According to Fritz Springmeier, when Todd was freed in 1994, he was “picked up by a helicopter” and murdered. (“Bloodlines of the Illuminati” p.93)

But James’ website has a record of Todd being released from prison in South Carolina in April 2004 and then being re-incarcerated in the “Behavioral Disorder Treatment Unit” of the South Carolina Dept. of Mental Health. Calls to the Director Chad Lominick  were not returned. (Could someone find out if Todd is there and still alive? We owe him that at the very least.)

Todd has provided many shocking revelations, which Fritz Springmeier confirms could only come from a man who was in fact a member of the Council of Thirteen. Fritz Springmeier says the 13 Illuminati families consist of “generational Satanists.”


Speaking in about 1978, Todd said the Illuminati use the Jews as a front.

“The Illuminati knows the people are going to find out about them …the best thing they can do is call your attention towards something else & say that’s that. So they have reflected the attention on Zionism …The only problem is that most of the people in the Illuminati aren’t Jews. Their founders were Jews by birth, but not by religion. But most of its leaders, except for the Rothschilds, are Gaelic: Scotch or French Gaelic. It’s got nothing to do with Jews. My family & most of the people serving on the Grand Druid, their family trees go back to the pagan temples in Rome & Greece & England, to the original priesthood. Some go back as far as Egypt & Babylon. It’s got nothing to do with the Jews.”

[David Livingstone writes: “Elizabeth Hirschmann and Donald Yates in their study, “When Scotland was Jewish”, documents the Jewish origin of many of Scotland’s leading families, beginning with the Sinclairs and Stuarts, but also the families of Forbes, Bruce, Campbell, Gordon, Caldwell, Fraser, Leslie, Christie, Kennedy, and Cowan (Cohen).]

Todd makes clear the Rothschilds, a family of Sabbatean Jewish Cabalists, top the Illuminati hierarchy:

baroness-philippine-mathilde-camille-de-rothschild-3.jpg( left, Rothschild heiress, Baroness Philippine Mathilde Camille de Rothschild, 80, displays satanic pendant) 


“The Rothschilds lead the Illuminati and in every country they have a family …being the head of the Illuminati. In the United States, we have the Rockefellers. David Rockefeller is both the head of the Council of Foreign Relations and the Trilateral [Commission] which is the name of the Illuminati within the United States.”

“On the top of each pyramid you will see a capstone with an eye in it. The capstone is the Rothschild Family or Tribunal that rules the Illuminati; they were the creators of it. The eye is Lucifer, their god and their voice. The first 3 top blocks are on every pyramid. The top block is what I was initiated into, the council of 13 called the Grand Druid Council. They only take orders from the Rothschilds and nobody else. They’re their private priesthood. The Council of 33 is directly under them, that is the 33 highest Masons in the World. The Council of 500, some of the richest people and conglomerates in the World–[including the Bilderbergs and the families like the Duponts and Kennedys.]

“The Golden Dawn is the organisation of witchcraft, the 4th block up there, and it’s the Rothschild’s private coven. They choose every member personally.” He says C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein were both members of Golden Dawn. Grand Druid Isaac Bonewitz and the ACLU started an organization to sue Christians who defame the Occult. He includes Scientology and The National Council of Churches in the Illuminati structure.


Todd traces his defection to a meeting that took place around Labour Day 1972. They had received eight letters by diplomatic pouch from London.

“Dr. [Raymond] Buckland cut the seal on it and took out six letters that were sealed with this Illuminati crest. The first four were just business, money that we were to pay here and there and so on. Actually, the Grand Druid Council is nothing but glorified bankers, they write millions of dollars worth of checks to people in political and religious fields every month. But the last two letters led me to want to get out.

“Now even though I was a part of setting up a world government, I always kind of snickered that [this] was ever going to happen, that we were serious, that it was kind of a little game we were playing. As long as the Rothschilds had all of the money to spend on our plans, we went ahead and spent the money. So I never took it seriously until we opened the last two letters.

“Now in the first letter that we opened of those last two, was a chart, and in that chart it listed an eight-year plan for world take-over ending in the December month of 1980. …Next, the last letter we opened contained–now I’ll have to quote it and then I’ll have to explain, it, since witches say English but they say words that may not mean anything to you–it said:

“We have found a man whom we believe to be the son of Lucifer. We believe that through his works and our backing he can become ruler of this world, stop all wars, and bring peace, finally, to this war-stricken World.” Now that literally meant that we had found a person so fantastically-powered that he could convince people he was their only salvation. Now that literally meant in Christian terms, he was demon-possessed like nobody had ever seen!”

Todd said the take-over plan involved economic breakdown where even Illuminati companies went broke. They have the means to survive such a catastrophe. He says Phillip de Rothschild gave the plan to his mistress Ayn Rand for her novel “Atlas Shrugged.” (Interestingly, a movie of this novel starring CFR member Angelina Jolie is in the works.)

Todd says that in the face of economic breakdown, the Illuminati have trained a military force (including prison inmates) to take over the US. This echoes Svali, another Illuminati defector, who has disappeared. 

He says that, as in the Bolshevik Revolution, millions will be killed in a “helter skelter” rule of terror. Todd says the only thing deterring this plan is widespread gun ownership among the US population.

In the 1980’s, he spoke of a plan to reduce the world to rubble in World War Three, to spare only Jerusalem, and rule from there.


As suggested above, Todd says the Illuminati spend a lot of money bribing people, especially Christian evangelists and preachers.

“Much that you see in churches that you just think is liberalism is pay-offism. …It’s kind of hard for a minister …to turn down half-a-million dollars if it’s laid down as a bribe, and they can get even higher. In fact, one church I know of got eight million dollars in two years, and another one got ten million dollars in one year! So, they can receive some money.”

Todd says rock and roll music is designed to cast a demonic spell on the listener. I know this sounds farfetched but I urge you to listen to Todd’s presentation “Witchcraft of Rock and Roll” in the multimedia section here. He says the Illuminati started Jesus Rock to control the message. The group, “KISS” stands for “Kings in Satanic Service.”


Anyone reading Todd’s lectures can see he was raised in Satanism as he claimed, and had a profound understanding. Fritz Springmeier, who is also imprisoned, said Todd knew things that had taken him (Springmeier) years to grasp.

Todd’s message seems too bizarre to be believed. But in the context of the phony 9-11 attacks, the phony war on terror, the suspension of Constitutional protections, the erection of a police state, the failure of Congress and the media,the dumbing down and homosexualization of society, the sexualization of children, the explicit Satanism, depravity and pornography in the “entertainment” industry, Todd makes a lot of sense.

Humanity is the victim of a monstrous conspiracy of unspeakable proportions. Our leaders, whom we pay to defend us from this sort of thing, are either dupes or traitors. 

Mankind has the intelligence and the means to evolve as intended, but we are being dragged back into an abyss by Evil incarnate.

What can we do? You tell me. They need to deceive the masses. Help spread the truth while we still can.

Winston Churchill, Druid

First Comment by Ron:

Trauma based pacification is a program which has been headed up for many years by Gen Michael Aquino. He was part of the MK-Ultra program which ended at the CIA and was secretly passed to the NSA. Today MINDWAR and PSYOPS is what is continually assaulting the senses of the entire world. The Machiavellian book written by Sun Tzu, “The Art of War”, is the basis from which every Illuminaughty war (MINDWAR) is planned an executed.

  In the Book, The Art of War, a quote from Sun Tzu.. “If you do not know your enemy, don’t go to war with him”. The entire intelligence posture “in this day and ages is” everyone is my enemy ! This is why they are collecting information on “EVERYONE”. To drive this point home, NSA Chief Gen. Keith Alexander said that “If you believe Snowden is innocent and what he did was right by exposing the Intelligence boondoggle, then the government will view you the same as an Al Queda member. Remember that POTUS gave shoot to kill orders for those who are “suspected terrorist” suspending due process. Also, Gen Alexander has by Fiat also suspended the 1st amendment not allowing dissenters to voice their opinion without fear of extreme governmental reciprocity, i.e. wet work.  
  The reason why I tell people of the tramata is that I am demonstrating a clear link to what is called in the New Testament as the Tribulation. Noting that Gen Aquino is the founder of the Order of Set, the Egyptian death cult which has spread throughout the upper echelon of the highest military ranks, we know their is a direct and deliberate connection to the occult who is behind this. 
  Transhumanism sometimes called H+ or Humanity+ follows the Aquino doctrines. The first initiation ritual in the Order of Set called for the initiate to claim that he is the creator and (s)he is a god. They plan to use technology to extend their lives and become augmented with electronics which they claim will help make them all seeing and all knowing. Interestingly this parallels the Gen 6 account where the fallen angels left their first estate to take the daughters of Adam to wife and posses the bodies of the giants. So wise to do evil that god destroyed them. Jesus would prophesy that it will be the same as it was in the days of Noah. I believe Transhumanism is a ruse to bring in a malevolent group hell bent on destroying all of GOD’s creation. 
  The signs in the bible are evident.. that these are the last days. 

Comments for “Revisiting John Todd: “Rothschilds Rule with Druid Witches””

Jeff said (August 8, 2013):

I was listening to this same thing on YouTube about a week ago. I love to review his works periodically. At some point I noticed him refer to himself as “Lance.” Could this be Lance Collins, as was suggested in other research I’ve read? I also read somewhere that he did make it out of custody, only to be picked up by someone on a helicopter and shot. What a shame we didn’t get to meet this warrior.

Robert said (August 8, 2013):

After listening to several of John Todd’s teachings, I believe that he has a tremendous understanding of a “particular” part of Satan’s plan. His experiences, encounters and revelations are taught with great enthusiasm and deep conviction. However, one can be sincere in their beliefs and also be “sincerely wrong”. Mr Todd did a great job relating what he understood but when it came to trying to predict the future “moves and decisions” of the NWO, he is only one man with a limited perspective of a MONUMENTAL organization that is thousands of years old.

The NWO is like an elephant. The elephants many parts are all different organizations that make the elephant work. If I am acquainted only with the elephant’s trunk, I will describe the NWO differently than the guy that is acquainted with the elephant’s ear. It’s still an elephant, but different parts of an elephant. If I understand the “Jesuit” component of the NWO, but am not familiar with the “Freemason” component, I will most likely invalidate freemasonry as having any real value in the whole scheme of things.

Furthermore, all of the parties in the NWO circulate lies within their organization to “throw off” anyone who may internally rise up within the ranks and defect. THEN the defecting person has truth mixed with error and can be proven counterfeit amongst the common people.

John Todd understood what he was acquainted with. He then made predictions about the future that came from understanding the “trunk of the elephant”. Many of his predictions were not accurate and thus people could call him a shill. Then, people began to question the validity of his story and pointed to many potential “holes” about his testimony that did not add up. Combine this with the people who are “plants” in Christian researcher circles and the end game is that John Todd is a fool. Case closed.

Lastly, many people say, “if men like Todd are telling the truth, then why do they leave his sermons on YouTube?” Why leave his testimony on the Internet??? Great question! The answer, dear reader, is so they can discover YOU! That’s right. Every “click” on you tube tells the NWO who they need to “flag” as a potential problem for them.

The best thing any of us can do is love God with all our hearts, serve Him in this world and help people get the inner healing they deserve. Satan loves it when we go after him in a wild goose chase. If he can “wear you out” by getting you to expose him all over the Internet, them you will never have time to do what you were truly created for – “Loving The Lord with all your heart, soul mind and strength AND loving your neighbor as yourself.” THIS is how you bring down the NWO, one soul at a time.

Doug said (August 8, 2013):

When I read stuff on the illuminati anywhere I always regard it with a grain of salt. There are many things that have been hidden from us and therefore can be hidden and if 9-11 hasn’t received an open investigation than that means they can and do hide things about 9-11. If this is the case they must be successful in shaping our views as John Todd or any other *real* defector can be shut off in every conveivable way so that no one ever hears his testimony anywhere. Certainly he can be killed off.

On the other hand, I also do believe that secret organizations that run government do exist and that they have a religion very different from our own. Certainly Darwinism is a made-for-TV and made-for-public-education concept and any society who members still have minds believe in some kind of religion that reflects their ethic and morals. This has always been true-since the ancient Greeks could write about it anyways.

Any I believe that most of the things in this article are probably true. I just wonder what we are not being told – no doubt that this would matter and probably completely change our viewpoints on this. Articles like this make our situation seem – hopeless as if these people are infinitely powerful. They are only as powerful as we allow them to be and our bureaucrats administer. Their power can only be administered when we are asleep and not politically savvy. This oligarchy has always existed and today we must wonder how much control they have over public perceptions of themselves.

If there is a message that is permitted on you-tube, it is there because the PTB permit it. The best lies are lies of omission. Sometimes we just do not know that we do not know as Rumsfeld famously explained.

Dan said (August 8, 2013):

“Mark Dice” is such an MSM shill that it hurts. He’s such an ‘AJ’ clone. (“Alex Jones”). He even sounds like AJ.
He made his debut on the counterintelligence shill circuit under the alias of “John Conner” with ‘Loose Change’.

His online ‘bio’ says, “Occasionally Mark is able to bypass the mainstream media gate-keepers and get his message out to the masses. ”

Yeah, I’ll say he has. He’s been on The History Channel: Brad Meltzer’s Decoded, KTLA Los Angles, Fox News Channel: Guest on America’s Morning, The O’Reilly Factor, MSNBC, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABC’s The View, he was a frequent call-in ‘citizen’ on Glen Beck.

Also in print media, Rolling Stone Magazine, the BBC online, the Washington Times, the London Telegraph, the Village Voice, CNET, Huffington Post, Canada Free Press, Smart Money Magazine, Telopolis in Germany, IAfrica in South Africa

Here’s a very routine ‘flame war’ stunt between two shills, “Mark Dice” and “Tia Tequilla”, accusing each other of being Illuminati shills.

I’m just curious what readers think of these people – does anybody buy it?

Jack said (August 8, 2013):

I had been following the accounts of John Todd. The only thing that buffered my view was the critical comments by Mark Dice. This repost apparently negates the Dice criticism; as Todd died in confinement. I am glad you made another attempt to clarify this story.

Jim said (August 5, 2013):

I met John Todd in 1976 or 1977 in Seattle where he gave his testimony and story about becoming a Christian.

It was a long time ago and I cannot remember the exact date.

I do remember the meeting was held in a warehouse close to the Space Needle.

Even though it was 36 or 37 years ago, I remember much of what he said about his life before his conversion from satanism to Christianity.

I remember that he was important to the top level Illuminati Council of 13 of which he said he was a member because he was of the bloodline of Todd.
He related to the audience men and women have no standing with these satanists without the pedigree of blood.

Because of time and space I am not able to tell you all that I remember, but I believed he was telling the truth then and I have no reason to doubt what he has said subsequent to that evening.
Keep on alerting your readers to the danger that surrounds us.

Mark said (November 4, 2007):

“My source is the highest Illuminati defector in history, a Witch High Priest, a member of the Council of Thirteen, and part of the Collins Illuminati bloodline that brought Witchcraft to the US in the 17th Century.”

Not quite the “highest”: I strongly advise checking out all the information given by “Mother Goddess” Arizona Wilder. She’s a whistleblower from even higher up the Satanic hierarchy than was John Todd.

I believe Henry Makow has previously endorsed information from the highly credible Cathy O’Brien. Well, Arizona Wilder’s info reinforces that of O’Brien, but offers a view from higher up the occult Illuminati pyramid. For those with a truly open mind, Wilder’s testimony can be amply confirmed elsewhere. Predictably, it goes into weirder territory than the confessions of Todd and O’Brien: how could it NOT, since Wilder has been part of the very inner sanctum of world Satanism, which is utterly corrupt and perverse by nature??

Springmeier is great, of course. But we’ve got to be brave enough to face information even *he* hasn’t yet broached. The Illuminati crosses some very strange barriers… we’ve got to follow their trail as far as it goes, and not merely stop where it’s convenient or socially acceptable. Right?


John said (November 4, 2007):

If there are still any people out there that are ‘ in denial ‘ that
the current President of the United States is
NOT a ‘ born-again ‘ Christian, or any other(?) kind of Christian, but, rather,
was, & STILL IS ,
a member of
‘ Skull & Bones ‘ ,
a satanic secret-society,
then they can find still more proof here:

At the end of
former Illuminati witch John Todd’s presentation,
‘ Witchcraft of Rock & Roll ‘ ) ,
he says,
“for [someone] to leave the Illuminati .. .
he would have had to tell it. .. .
Let me tell you something real quick so that
there will be no misunderstanding:
You come out of the occult,
you come out of the masons,
you come out of the Illuminati,
there is one [?] thing:

Anywhere there is a vow of secrecy,
that vow of secrecy MUST be broken.

Not in part.
When somebody breaks the complete vow of secrecy
they are out.


In the current President’s

Official autobiography,

‘ A Charge To Keep: My Journey To The White House ‘

[ See it for yourself, right here: ], he wrote,

“My senior year I joined Skull & Bones, a secret-society,

so secret I can’t say anything more.

In a rare, extraordinary, interview on NBC’s ’60 Minutes’,

he was asked about the fact that

not only one, but BOTH , so-called ‘ contenders ‘

for the President’s Office are

members of Skull & Bones, & he said,

“It is so secret, we can’t talk about it.”

[Watch BOTH public admissions, back-to-back, right here:

Watch how quickly Kerry tries to change the subject, &

the way NBC helps him accomplish that.]

things we were not supposed to know, & to understand –

which probably cost him his life –

can be found here:

Finally, you can verify, for yourselves, all of the truths about John Todd here:



D said (November 3, 2007):

I recall that Mr. Bonewitz here had been well acquainted with Anton LeVay and Michael Aquino. He may correct me if my memory distorts the facts. Bonewitz was a member of LeVay’s Church of Satan (CoS) for a while, ostensibly split from it – as Aquino split it CoS into his Temple of Set (ToS – now Temple of Power).

I remember very well the well publicized split between LeVay and Bonewitz. Aquino and Bonewitz carried on an ongoing mudslinging match betweeen each other for many years through letters to off-beat occult magazines, as late as 1991. Acquino called Bonwitz one of ‘the big nosed pagans’ I remember.
I thought it was a punch and judy show they were putting on back then…and from all we’ve learned about these guys since there really is no doubt about that.
ToS fronted every occult AND BDSM and swinger’s club in Austin, Texas back in the early 90’s. These clubs, cliques and quasi-ordered ran the gamut from Wiccan to Pagan to Satanist….of course the recruits were unaware that they were all covertly created and controlled by (name withheld) – a college professor that was working directly for Aquino.
I will grant that “The people who rule the world are businessmen and bankers who don’t give a damn about any religion, divine or demonic.” as he’s written here. The occult is the oldest con in the book for indoctrinating into mind control, and also for intelligence gathering, counterintelligence, blackmail, extortion and you name it.
And what about John Todd? Where is he? Wikipedia says,” Todd is currently residing in a maximum security prison for the treatment of high risk sex offenders.” How can we confirm that?

Thought you might like this

Todd (Collins) has been smeared from multiple quarters. Glaring conflicts have been cited in the autobiographical information he gave, such things as his official military record says he was a state-side clerk on a base during the Viet Nam war rather than going to Viet Nam as he said. Most of the negative information on the web was authored by evangelist groups claiming to have had contact with him in the past. One called him a ‘pathological liar’. Also articles emphasizing seductions of underage girls, and finally campus rapes.

Listening to this ten minutes of 1970’s recording of one of his lectures, considering what he spoke about in details that simply wasn’t circulating in the public domain 35 years ago, I really can’t accept that he was just a pathological liar with a scam. He couldn’t have just pulled these details out of his ass at the time.



Tony said (November 2, 2007):

Dr. Makow: Following your article on the rule of Druid Witches,commentators refer to certain bloodlines. Americans of European
background, in general, have few written records beyond a couple of hundred years, so they/we tend to be impressed with someone claiming
direct descent from a medieval French king. It should be pointed out that if you double your ancestry every 25 years, which is considered
an anthropological generation, beginning in 1950, by the year 1000,you will see that you have about 250 billion ancestors. Since the
world as we know it did not have a billion inhabitants until 1850,everyone, certainly everyone of European background, is descended
many times over, probably millions of times over, from those people with a line of descendants. Since Rollo the Viking, or whoever,
lived long before the year 1000, we can assume that if he had a line of descendants we are all descended from Rollo the Viking, and not
just the Normans and the Sinclairs, and the Forbes, et al.
Geneticists also now know for sure that everyone of European background is descended from Charlemagne, who lived in the 9th
century. We are all probably also descended from the Capets as well. DNA scientists also know that if only two percent of Jewish
males in European cohabited with non-Jewish females in the year 1000,probably a low number, that everyone of European background has
Jewish blood. And everyone with any kind of British, Irish, or Scottish background, red-headed or not, has Norman blood; it comes
with the territory. In short, a lot of this “bloodline” argument that I keep seeing referenced on the Internet is really, really,
really dumb. We are all part Jewish; and Jews are all part non-Jewish; we are all descended from kings and peasants; we are all part
Norman and part Viking.

And beyond that, it’s also true that a certain percentage of every generation do not have the fathers they say they have or think they
And many so-called aristocrats invent their lineage; certainly many Americans do; Jackie Kennedy was one recent example

Issaac Bonewits said (November 2, 2007):

You might want to read the one book that has been written about John Todd, aka Lance Collins: ‘The Todd phenomenon?’ by Darryl E Hicks, a reporter for ‘Christianity Today.’ Darryl Hicks is an Evangelical Christian, not a ‘heretic’ or Heathen of any sort. He found that Todd’s story was sleazy and unbelievable for anyone who actually tracked his real life story. This matches a pattern of deceit set by Michale Warneke and other pushers of ‘Satanic Panic’ (Jeff Victor’s book by that name would also be worth your reading.) I met Todd twenty years ago when he was running a psuedo-Wiccan scam in Dayton, Ohio (and being an informant for the FBI). He has been in and out of jail his entire life due to a habit of shooting guns wildly and sleeping with underage girls whenever possible. I was one of the people who exposed him as a fraud for his claims of knowledge about witchcraft and druidism. As a result I became elected by him to the rank of being the criminal mastermind behind the Illuminati, after he had gone back to promoting himself as an ‘expert’ on the topics. Ironically, I do believe that there are conspiracies, I just think there are hundreds of them, not just one or two. Still I look in my mailbox every day and never seem to get that fat check from the Rothschilds Todd said I was getting. In fact, I earned less than $10,000 last year from my writing and speaking about minority belief systems, so the life of an Illuminati mucky-muck doesn’t seem to be very lucrative. Don’t waste your time worrying about imaginary global satanic conspiracies. The people who rule the world are businessmen and bankers who don’t give a damn about any religion, divine or demonic. Should you decide that you actually want to know what modern Pagans really believe and practice, try reading my books and those of others who belong to the religions, rather than those written by people with economic and theological axes to grind. You will probably still disagree with us and think we are foolish people, but you won’t be distracted from the real conspiracies by imaginary ones.

James said (November 1, 2007):

I read your article about John Todd this evening.
I met John some 30 years ago at a meeting in a small warehouse in Seattle. John was a recent convert to Christianity and those of us in attendence were all converts as well. He made quite an impression on me. He told us that he was afraid for his life. He was armed with
a 45 cal. automatic pistol in his belt for all to see. He told us he was a member of the Council of 13, of his being in the Rothschild mansion in England, of being seated at the dinner table with 13 chairs, one of which was for Satan. He was special, he said because of his bloodline,
his being born into a family of witches and warlocks. He said his mother was a witch, and bloodlines do count for much in the occult world. He became a Christian due to meeting a man in a coffehouse in a southern state – Alabama, Arkansas, or Tennesee who shared the gospel with
him. He also told us that he was rescued from a life sentence in an Army prison in Germany for killing his superior officer. He shot him to death with a pistol. His mother contacted a US Senator who flew to Germany and “pulled the strings” for his release and expunging his
service record of the incident.

These few items from that evening with John so many years ago I do remember quite vividly. They made such an impression on me, I have never forgotten them. Henry, keep informing us the Truths you have found.

Charles said (November 1, 2007):

I’ll bite. I am hard pressed to accept the notion
that lineages are intact going back to Rome or Egypt.
Even harder to accept an intact social structure
descending from deep antiquity.

Hugh Capet (938-966), the house of Bourbon,
represented in the elder line by King Juan Carlos, is the senior surviving branch of the house of Capet.

The elder line of Capet became extinct with the death of Charles IV in 1328. The next eldest line, the house of Valois died out with Henry III in 1589. That left the house of Bourbon as the senior line of Capet. Juan Carlos is directly descended from the grandson of Louis XIV, who became Philip V, the first Bourbon King
of Spain. The French descendants of Louis XIV of
Bourbon ended with the Count of Chambord who died in 1883. The current claimants to the French throne are of the house of Bourbon-Orleans, descended from the younger brother of Louis XIV.

Hi, Henry, Thanks for a superb website! Further to your comment that Todd’s observation that ‘rock ‘n roll music is designed to cast a demonic spell on the listener’ sounds far-fetched: please allow me to mention a bit of empirical evidence from my own experience. I was called a couple of years ago (in my capacity as emergency services chaplain) to a suicide scene. A 24-year old had returned to South Africa from a stint working in London, where he had acquired manuals of Masonic and Satanistic practice (discovered only upon his death). His music collection had been almost exclusively of the heavy metal variety, with a few animated models of bands (including KISS) as part of the decoration of his bedroom. He had been in low spirits ever since returning from overseas, and on this day had put on one of favourite music CDs as background, wrapped a plastic bag around his head, and smothered himself. There seemed to be a common-sense link between the pre-existent musical taste, the new occult interest and the eventual self-destructive behaviour.

read your John Todd article and I am responding to your question, “What can we do? You tell me.” Thanks for asking.

The first thing we must do is spread the truth and awaken the population, one person at a time. You and many others have been doing this for years. I have written two books meant to enlighten people.

The second thing we must do is unite. We the People have the strength and power of size and numbers. We can defeat a small group, if we come together. We need a club to join, a list of real names of people who are willing to stand up and be counted, and to declare our intentions. We must come out of the closet and into the light.

The third thing we must do is defend the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Well, Henry, you were right that I would be interested in your article posted today on . I heard a tape recording from a presentation by Johnny Todd at a church back in around 1980 from my neighbor. I found it hard to grasp but probably true. Many years later now after learning more than I ever wanted too about high level corruption in police, courts, state and federal politics and gov’t I now believe that he is probably correct. I certainly believe that luciferian based entities have control at all the power points in society here and abroad. One only needs to look at the “finders” incident, the “Franklin credit union” coverup, the presidio child sex scandal (Col michael acquino and temple of set) for absolute proof that the military, intel and the highest echelons in gov’t practice luciferianism and are nothing more than expressions of organized crime structure who are controlled by demons. These articles are public info and have been verified many times over. But there are more gov’t documents not commonly known by the public and these docs are based on public govt hearing on cia covert ops gone bad, radiation experiments, etc. Any reasonable person who examines the many gov’t docs and eyewitness testimony of former intel and military will have to admit that our whole gov’t/military/intel system is a set of rico types organized crime syndicates.

Your article today is the latest set of deep secrets exposed by your peeling back another layer of the liciferian onion. You are close to the core of the “conspiracy of the snake” going back to the garden of eden. lucifer was the snake being in the garden of eden that talked to eve and tempted her.

Keep up the good work. You just keep writing groundbreaking research. In my opinion the only power great enough to break the satanic spell cast over most people’s minds by these covert luciferian rulers who are given the whole world by satan is the power of the Holy Spirit of Gad Amighty and belief in the Savior of the world, His son Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins. Through our belief in Jesus as our Savior, our sins can be forgiven and we can be released from spiritual bondage of the snake being lucifer. Then the demons can be cast out and the soul can be freed to see and believe the truth.

I have read Fritz Springmeier book 13 Bloodlines of the Illuminati several years ago and from doing my own investigation I have come to similar conclusions as Todd. But there is one unanswered question where does the the Black Pope fit into all this? I am starting to think that he controls everthing and even Rothschild answer to him.

Thanks Joel

I don’t know the answer to this and it takes a big man (200 lbs) to admit that.

Introducing John Todd’s story today is more difficult because scarcely anyone believes in the spirit world anymore, so Todd’s story is simply inconceivable for most. Dr. Wickland’s 1974 book, Thirty Years Among The Dead, opens with a chapter, The Inter-Relationship Between the Two World, which is an excellent explanation of the spirit world with quotations like this:

John Wesley wrote in “The Invisible World”: “It is true that the English in general — indeed most of the men of learning in Europe — have given up all accounts of witches and apparitions as mere old wives’ fables. I am sorry for it, and I willingly take this opportunity to offer my solemn protest against this violent compliment which so many that believe in the Bible pay to those who do not believe it. Such belief is in direct opposition, not only to the Bible, but to the suffrage of the wisest and best of men in all ages and nations. They well know that the giving up of witchcraft is in effect giving up the Bible.”

That psychic phenomena occurred at the house of Mr. Samuel Wesley, father of Rev. John Wesley, at Epworth, and continued with noises and disturbances of various kinds for many months, is well known.–01__INTER–RELATIONSHIP_OF_THE_TWO_WORLDS__000.htm

This book is online–00__TOC__30_Years_Among_the_Dead__000.html

Wickland’s book may be more instructive on the spirit world than Carr’s Satan. The Protestant world where English and German are spoken trivializes the spirit world with Halloween (It’s just make-believe for children); whereas, in the Latin world it’s still very real in the minds of the people. e.g. The Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos ). Which is celebrated tomorrow in Mexico for example.

David Livingstone said (October 31, 2007):

What is interesting is they are all descended from Rollo the Viking, who married Poppa of Bavaria, the great-granddaughter of Guillaume de Gellone. This was the most popular figure of the Grail Romances, where he was known as Aymery. He is believed to have been the son of Rabbi Makhir.
The Normans of course were all derived from Vikings, and particularly from the Orckney Islands in Northern Scotland. Genetic studies have found a particular link connecting the settlers of these isles with a strain of red hair, that is speckled across Scandinavia and then Central Asia.
The Norse sagas, known as the Prose Eddas, claim that Odin the progenitor of the Vikings came from Scythia, in Southern Russia, a people who were described by ancient historians as being green-eyed and red-haired. These people later converted to Judaism and become known as Khazars, who again were described as being red-headed. This likely resulted in the popular medieval Jewish legend about the Lost Tribes supposedly residing in Central Asia who were referred to as “Red Jews”.
But red, if you believe Dan Brown, but this has also been confirmed by Arizona Wilder, is the great secret of the Illuminati. Like Rothschild, which means “red shield”, or red flags of Communism. But is also the origin of “red cross”, or “rose cross” and Rosicrucian. Or, “rose-line”, which became Rosslyn, the supposed burial place of the Holy Grail, for which the Sinclairs have been the hereditary guardians.
This is why it is important that after two centuries of intermarriage among first cousins, a Rothschild finally married outside the family, but to a Sinclair. Jacob Rothschild married Mary Serena Dunn. The mother of Mary Serena was Lady Mary Sybil St. Clair-Erskine, who was herself the daughter of James Francis Harry St. Clair-Erskine, 5th Earl of Rosslyn.
