The Masonic Phi Beta Kappa
college of William and Mary in , was founded by a Royal Charter issued by King William III and Queen Mary II on Feb. 8 , 1693 . It is the second oldest college in the Williamsburg , Va. . Its charter called for three schools ; The Philosophy School which instructed students in the advanced study of moral philosophy ( logic , rhetoric , ethics ) , as well as natural philosophy ( physics , metaphysics , and mathematics ) , and the Divinity School , which prepared men for ordination into the Anglican Church of England . President James Madison’s cousin , also named James , worked with Thomas Jefferson to abolish the Divinity school . It is nice to know this is on public record , and , it is just as well , seeing Mr. Jefferson’s religion was , in his own words , not based upon faith in the Lord Jesus Christ . United States Jefferson was taught at William and Mary by his mentor , William Small , who taught the three Rosicrucian Natural specialties mentioned above . Small introduced Jefferson to the writings of two leading Rosicrucians , Francis Bacon and Isaac Newton . Jefferson wrote that Small fixed the destinies of Jefferson’s life . A website belonging to states ; “ Phi Beta Kappa , which was established by Thomas Jefferson .“ Sixteen signers of the Declaration of Independence graduated from William and Mary . Eight were known Masons , and seven had evidence of membership and / or affiliation with Masonry . Its primary authors , Franklin , a Mason , and Jefferson shared similar Univerlist , non Christian leanings , though Christ was seemingly inferred in the document . Their unbiblical beliefs are easily discerned in their own literature . Of those who signed the Constitution , nine were known Masons , and thirteen had evidence of membership and/or affiliation with Masonic Lodges . Some of William and Mary’s famous alumni include ; Presidents Jefferson , Tyler , and James Monroe . Other key figures include Peyton Randolph , Fulwar Skipworth , Henry Clay and Chief Justice John Marshall who was tutored by George Wythe . Harpur College laid the foundations for American constitutional law. Coincidentally , William R. Denslow’s book , “ 10,000 famous Freemasons “ includes the names of thirty-seven other Supreme Court justices who were Freemasons . Five of the past six presidents are Phi Beta Kappa alumni . They are ; Jimmy Carter , George Bush Sr. , Bill Clinton , George “Quincy “ Bush , and Barak Obama . Marshall
William and Mary’s F.H.C. was
’s first collegiate secret society , founded Nov. 11 , 1750 . Two of the students of the class of 1779 , John Heath and William Short founded Phi Beta Kappa as a secret literary and philosophical society . America Harpur College says Jefferson began the esoteric fraternity , and other sources state Heath and Short . Surely Jefferson was heavily involved , and perhaps preferred Heath and Short get credit . Nevertheless ,it was an academic honor society with its own honor code of conduct . Today , Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s premier honor society . Many other secret societies have been added to the and Mary . Phi Beta Kappa’s purpose was also to collectively strengthen colonies’ members’ intellects . A male student who did well in Latin and Greek was admitted to Philosophy School where he took place in debates , honing his intellectual skills , enabling him to debate , and thus often deceive the unwary with fair speeches , as is done yet today in congress . college of William
Ten of Phi Beta Kappa’s original members became Freemasons . There is a blatant Masonic connection to the Masonic Lodge in its 1779 initiation in which members were confirmed ; … “ here then you may for a while disengage yourself from scholastic cares and communicate without reserve whatever reflections you have made upon various objects ; remembering that every thing transacted within this room is transacted sub rosa ,…here too , you are to indulge in matters of speculation in that freedom of enquiry which ever dispels the clouds of falsehood by the radiant sunshine of truth . “ The dictionary definition of sub
rosa is ; “ under the rose : the rose being the symbol of the Egyptian god Horus , identified by the Greeks with Harpocrates , god of silence .” ( Maybe that’s how Harpo Marx got his name ). Phi Beta Kappa’s 1779 oath at William and Mary points to the Egyptian god , and the Masonic god , Horus , later featured on the one dollar bill . Phi Beta Kappa’s motto was ; “ philosophy is the helmsman of life . “ Philosophy is man’s replacement of his own authority in place of God’s. It may reference Jesus Christ , deceiving people that it pays homage to him , as do the Masons , but it is in total rebellion against him . And why the necessity for secrecy as in Masonry ?
Phi Beta Kappa was apparently fairly global , as was Masonry in 1777 , with similar gestures of brotherly recognition , perhaps an advanced step of Masonry itself , by which members could recognize each other “ in any foreign country or place . “ The gesture was a secret handshake and a stroke across the mouth with the back of the same hand , and a return with the hand used by the saluted .
Phi Beta Kappa is mentioned in a Masonic book which includes ;
“ A RITUAL AND ILLUSTRATIONS OF FREEMASONRY
ACCOMPANIED BY NUMEROUS ENGRAVINGS AND
A KEY TO THE PHI BETA KAPPA “
Masons proudly display their association of a secret society within their own secret society .
At the first meeting on Sunday , Jan . 5 , 1777 , the secret fraternal oath was ; “ I [name] do swear on the holy Evangelists of Almighty God or otherwise as calling the Supreme Being to attest this my oath , declaring that I will , with all my possible efforts , endeavor to prove true , just and deeply attached to this our growing fraternity : in keeping , holding , and preserving all secrets that pertain to my duty , and for the promotion and advancement of its internal welfare . “ As in Masonry , an oath is taken which Jesus prohibited . As in Masonry , the Supreme Being is mentioned , an unbiblical name found nowhere in the Bible , adding to God’s word , which is blasphemy . Its principles were “ intended to form a philosophical club , whose purpose should go far beyond the narrow range of college studies “of those days , and should include not only the wide range of what was then called “ philosophy “ , “ but the consideration , at the same time of political questions .” Ostensibly , government control by groups of educated elites was fostered and perpetuated by both Masonry , and the ideals of Phi Beta Kappa , as well as those of the enlightened adepts of the United Nations .
Manly P. Hall , a noted Masonic scholar , and 33rd degree Masonic Grand Commander seemed to reflect Alice A. Bailey’s esoteric influence in Masonry when he wrote ; “ True Freemasonry is esoteric …. The true student seeks to lift himself from the exoteric Body upward spiritually until he joins the esoteric group which … is far greater than all the lodges on the physical plane of Nature , is far greater than all the lodges of which it is a central fire … In Freemasonry is concealed … the path the student must tread in order to join those who are really the living powers behind the thrones of modern national and international affairs . the true student realizes most of all that the taking of degrees does not make a man a Mason . A Mason is not appointed ; he is evolved and he must realize that the position he holds in the exoteric lodge means nothing compared to his position in the spiritual lodge of life . “ ( pp. 16-18 ; The Lost keys of Freemasonry , Manly P. Hall , 1923,1976 ) . Hall emphasizes powers behind thrones of modern national and international affairs . To Phi Beta Kappa members , Masons , Alice Bailey devotees and adept witches who thirst for power , Hall’s statements are not drivel . The Masonic quest has always been power gained in an ungodly manner . It is logical to assume the strong possibility that the antichrist and his ten toes will emerge from bodies of great influence such as these . But because the antichrist will be Jewish , as the Bible prophesies , Masonry will be a major stepping stone across which the antichrist’s forefathers will have treaded upon . The
emple’s first stone supplied by the Rothschilds eagerly awaits placement as the ’s pivotal foundation . Temple

One of Phi Beta Kappa’s early governmental influences was Chief Justice John Marshall
who studied law at Willliam and Mary under George Wythe’s tutelage in 1780 . I believe there is strong evidence of President Washington’s good friend George Wythe being a fellow Mason .
laid the foundation of American constitutional law . He established the prestige and power of the judiciary department , so that it could claim equal status with Congress and the Executive branches of government , enabling legislating from the bench today . He asserted the judiciary’s authority to expound the Constitution as paramount law , holding other branches accountable to it , the judiciary . He personally interpreted the Constitution in ways that significantly enhanced the federal government’s powers , superseding states’ powers when conflicts arose . His opinions were later used to justify the great expansion of the powers of the federal government . Marshall
