Copyright © 2016 Democratic Reform
This is an information site for the general public. Its aims are to inform and educate the public about the true nature of some western systems of government. In any democratic system of government, the general populace / ‘The People’ cannot make an informed choice without adequate information. We believe that a major flaw in some western systems is the presence of secret / secretive organisations that pull the strings of power at will unseen. Like a dark hidden hand you might say. This includes: the media, politics, the legal profession and the awarding of business contracts. A major aim of this site is to expose the reality of those organisations and in dong so bring out significant change to allow all people irrespective of background, race, religion etc to progress and evolve unhindered.
At times the language used on this site is strong, direct and uncompromising. When you are dealing with serious matters such as hypocrisy, murder and corruption, we feel that an open, honest, direct approach in plain language that everyone can understand is the best approach.
We believe that Freemasonry should be subject to a public enquiry and a parliamentary debate in the U.K. with a view to banning it in its current form. We believe that Freemasonry has become a serious risk to national security, and that extremist groups can use its presence behind supposed democratic systems of government as an excuse to attack western countries putting the lives of the public in danger.
Freemasonry is rarely reported on by the mainstream media, and the organisation itself likes to portray itself as harmless, with innocent, eccentric rituals rooted in antiquity whose motive is to help people improve their character. The reality is very different. Read the section ‘Lower degrees’, read the section ‘Higher degrees’, including the excerpts. The sections on this site ‘Knights Templar’ and ‘Morals and Dogma’ also give a stark insight into the reality of the organisation, and Freemasonry is anything but harmless and a bit eccentric. It is not a dinner club, and it is not like the local golf club. Freemasonry is a religion, it is satanic, it is political and it is extremely dangerous to any supposed democratic country.
Democratic systems have no chance of succeeding with Masonic secrecy lurking in the background, and it is time for people to see some western systems for what they are are and demand change. Addressing secretive organisations like the masons is addressing the real, root cause of many problems we see in the world, such as severe austerity, corrupt centralisation and an elitist oligarchy who own and control most of the world’s resources. It’s time to ignore so called leaders and a media that terms discussions like these ‘conspiracy theories’. It’s time to look at the evidence and it’s time to look at the facts.
This part of the site will include some stark conclusions, and readers are free to check those conclusions with evidence elsewhere on this site, and / or do their own research and make their own minds up.
Before we start with our main points, if you are aware of UK politics, ask yourself this simple question. Britain is supposed to be a democratic system, and the main choice of government has traditionally been Conservative v Labour. Agreed? Who has held power for the most part during the last two decades? We had Tony Blair, Labour leader (1997 - 2007) and now David Cameron, Conservative leader (2010 - present). What is the difference? Very little if you’re being honest. It has been alleged that Tony Blair was an MI5 plant (http://www.bilderberg.org/sis.htm#agent) and a high ranking mason (member of the Studholme lodge, 1591, London, http://www.hrionline.ac.uk/lane/record.php?ID=3120, (http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=1ef_1319937970), and most people accept that he lied to start an illegal war in Iraq, costing the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Is it really that strange to claim that he, Bush and others were not following their party manifesto pledges and promises, but were following a higher, unseen agenda that centred around reshaping the middle east according to a Masonic blueprint?
Some researchers claim that these politicians are part of a group called the ‘Illuminati’. We don’t know whether any such group exists, but we are 100% sure that Freemasonry exists, and that there are higher degrees that are military in nature and that include themes from Knights Templar rituals (see section on this site for further details).
So we have prime minister after prime minister, private school educated, Oxbridge educated who is groomed to follow the royal Masonic agenda of the day. An agenda that is out of sight to the British public and virtually never reported on by the mainstream media.
Before we continue, Freemasonry is very real, and its existence and motives have been commented on by some upright, honest leaders in the past. So before you pass this site off as conspiratorial nonsense, let’s consider some of those comments (also see photograph evidence at the end of this section):
‘I do conscientiously and sincerely believe that the order of Freemasonry, if not the greatest, is one of the greatest moral and political evils under which the Union is now labouring .. a conspiracy of the few against the equal rights of the many .. Freemasonry ought forever to be abolished. It is wrong, essentially wrong, a seed of evil, which can never produce any good.’ US President John Quincy Adams, ‘Letters on Freemasonry’, 1833.
‘The Masonic fraternity tramples upon our rights, defeats the administration of justice, and bids defiance to every government which it cannot control.’ US President, Millard Fillmore.
‘The institution of Freemasonry ought to be abandoned as one capable of much evil, and incapable of producing any good which might not be affected by safe and open means.’ Supreme Court Chief Justice, John Marshall.
‘All secret oath bound political parties are dangerous to any nation, no matter how pure or how patriotic the motives and principles which first bring them together.’ US President, Ulysses S. Grant.
‘The Supreme Council of the 33rd Degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry has told the student that 13 of the 39 original signers of the Constitution were masons .. It is also interesting to note that there were 39 signers, exactly 3 times the Masonic number 13.’ Ralph Epperson, ‘The New World Order’ (P 146).
‘I tell you now that Freemasonry is one of the most wicked and terrible organizations upon this earth. The masons are major players in the struggle for world domination. The 33rd Degree is split into two. One split contains the core of the Luciferian Illuminati and the other contains those who have no knowledge of it whatsoever.’ Behold A Pale Horse, Bill Cooper.
‘The great strength of our order lies in its concealment. Let it never appear in any place in its own name, but by another name, and another activity. None is fitter than Freemasonry. The public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it.’ Adam Weishaupt.
‘We wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal, working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists, and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated, global political structure, one world if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and am proud of it.’ David Rockerfeller, ‘Memoirs’.
‘We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications, whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world, if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.’ David Rockerfeller.
'We shall have world government whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by conquest or consent.' Gregg Warburg, to the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, 1950.
This comment is particularly relevant in light of the 2016 ‘Brexit’ referendum in the UK. The European Union was originally simply a common economic agreement called the ‘Common Market’ whose original purpose was to facilitate trade. Now we see an out of control monolith, a monster whose aims it seems centre around creating as much chaos as possible (severe austerity in southern Europe, over population, youth unemployment etc), at the end of which, it will offer more and more centralisation, more and more control, more and more misery for the People and more and more concentrated wealth and power for the privileged - the select few who are privy to the real, unseen E U agenda.
And on the subject of ‘terrorism’. ‘The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda, and any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity. The country behind this is the US.’ Pierre-Henry Bunel, Former French Military Intelligence.
John F. Kennedy made a speech in 1961 that directly addressed the problem of secrecy and secret societies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBQiSPWLm2k
‘In a time of universal deceit (e.g. masons dictating world events behind the scenes), telling the truth is a revolutionary act.’ George Orwell.
Now, to avoid you feeling despondent and overly negative, consider these more positive quotes:
‘Knowledge is power.’ Sir Francis Bacon.
‘Fear is dispelled by knowledge.’ Anon.
‘We have nothing to fear, but fear itself.’ Franklin Roosevelt.
‘There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.’ The Bible.
‘The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.’ Buddha.
‘When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.’ Buddha.
‘Even if you are in a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.’ Mahatma Gandhi.
‘There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.’ Buddha.
‘A person is only as big as the dream they dare to live.’ Unknown.
‘All dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did.’ T E Lawrence, ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’.
‘We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.’ Buddha.
‘What we think, we become.’ Buddha.
‘The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.’ William James.
‘The world of achievement has always belonged to the optimist.’ J. Harold Wilkins.
‘A positive thought is far more powerful than a negative thought.’
‘Whatever the mind of man can conceive, and believe.. it can achieve.’
‘Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.’
‘Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.’ Buddha.
‘If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don’t. If you like to win, but you think you can’t, it’s almost certain you won’t. If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost. For out of the world we find success begins with a fellow’s will; it’s all in the state of mind. If you think you are outclassed, you are. You’ve got to think high to rise. You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you can ever win a prize. Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man; But sooner or later the man who wins, is the man who thinks he can.’ Walter D. Wintle.
On the issue of religious quotes in the above texts, we are not promoting any one religion on this site, although where there are spiritual truths that we feel are relevant in the battle for truth over secret, hidden agendas, we will quote those truths and use those truths.
Happier now? OK, read on..
Earlier in this section, we alluded to the reluctance of the mainstream media to ever report on Freemasonry. While national newspapers for example are happy to write article after article on the ‘evils’ of Islam, alleged paedophile priests, and even serialisations of Dan Brown’s books undermining the Catholic faith, you rarely if ever see any article questioning the morals and criminality of masons. It was notable that when Dan Brown the author wrote a book exposing some of the evils of Freemasonry, there was no serialisation in any national newspaper and no Hollywood film. Just the usual silence. When sites like this appear, they are often taken out of search engine results, and simply not commented on.
Recently however, there was some change, and it shows that those who pursue justice and truth should never give up. Hillsborough. The families of those loved ones who lost their lives in Sheffield in 1989 admirably pursued those responsible until the 2016 inquest concluded that all who died that day had been unlawfully killed. Many national newspapers reported that Masonic collusion in a South Yorkshire lodge was at the centre of the criminal cover up. Links:
For the brave families involved who eventually got justice for their loved ones who died that day, it took 27 years for the truth to come out. That timescale is diabolical; it is unacceptable in any supposed democratic country.
For those who research police corruption in cases such as Hillsborough, collusion amongst police officers who alter statements with the help of solicitors is not new. There are many well documented cases involving police officers who collude to pervert the course of justice and lie in court (perjury). For a member of the public, those crimes would result in prison sentences of between two and four years per case. And action taken against officers who have committed these crimes? Nothing so far, nothing at all. It is diabolical, utterly diabolical.
If the actions of the police in lying and trying to cover up their lies isn’t bad enough, families who pursued justice and eventually got verdicts of unlawful killing were regularly followed by police, monitored and had their telephones bugged. Is this Britain the democratic country, or Britain the Masonic police state? Links:
There was also the Orgreave miners case where police lied and were pressured into lying by their superiors to protect the image of South Yorkshire police. Michael Mansfield the well known human rights lawyer tried to help the miners in court who had been wrongly accused, and even produced CCTV footage backing up the claims of the innocent victims in the case. The judge in the case was having none of it, and would not accept that police officers would collude and lie in a court case, despite the glaring evidence that they had. Links:
There is also the very good book by Michael Mansfield (barrister) that documents the case in detail. See ‘Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer’.
The Jean Charles de Menezes case followed a similar pattern. A large number of witnesses from the public testified at the inquest that police had not issued a warning, and CCTV showed that he was not running and had not vaulted a barrier at Stockwell tube station. Again, police colluded, lied in their statements and lied in a court of law. None of the officers were prosecuted for the criminal offences they had clearly committed. Links:
There are a large number of other such cases, and we could go on. We have no doubt that the British police in cases like these is rotten and corrupt. We also have no doubt that the British police are Masonic. Their uniforms are covered in Masonic symbolism (e.g. black and white checker board designs, royal crowns and squares on top of squares), and many officers who have risen to high rank have done so through membership of Masonic lodges. It is disgraceful. See the section on this site ‘Corruption and Crime’ for a large number of other well documented cases of Masonic police corruption. The British police in its current form needs to be scrapped and masons banned from joining a new organisation.
We can’t move on from this topic without mentioning the atrocities that went on at Deepcut army barracks where four young army recruits lost their lives in suspicious circumstances. There is no doubt that bullying and sexual abuse went on at Deepcut, and many people believe that at least some of the recruits were murdered by their superiors. One recruit had allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself five times. Extracts from the site ‘deepcut-the-truth’:
June 1995 – Private Sean Benton, 20, of Hastings, East Sussex, was found dead at the Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, with five bullet wounds to his chest. Ballistics tests suggested only one bullet was fired from close range and the others from a distance. The Army said he committed suicide.
September 2001 – Private Geoff Gray, 17, from Hackney, east London, was found with two gunshot wounds to his head while on guard duty. Five shots were fired, the other three bullets were not found. A coroner records an open verdict after hearing that a figure was seen running away from the area.
Again, families who pursued justice and truth in these cases were monitored and bugged by the security services. Links:
A secret intelligence operation to spy on the families of the Deepcut victims is today exposed by the Sunday Express. Senior officers at MI5 are understood to be working with the Army's Special Investigation Branch to monitor their movements. The families have been calling for an inquiry into why four soldiers have been found shot dead in suspicious circumstances at the Royal Logistic Corps camp in Deepcut, Surrey. Last night an MI5 insider confirmed the operation - also including the GCHQ eavesdropping station - was under way.
The insider said: "It has been going on for some months. They are trying to find out what the families are up to, and if they are planning concerted action." On Friday, surveillance specialists from Tayside Police "swept" the Perth home of one of the victims, Private James Collinson. They found signals believed to be from bugging devices coming from a phone and a lamp.
The sweep was carried out at the request of Surrey Police who are investigating the deaths of Privates Collinson, 17, Geoff Gray 17, Cheryl James 18, and Sean Benton 20. The Ministry of Defence claim all four committed suicide. But their families believe there has been a cover-up after revelations of bullying and sexual harassment at the barracks. Surrey officers asked for the sweep after hearing noises on phone lines during conversations with relatives.
Pte Collinson's parents, Jim and Yvonne, and other Deepcut families have repeatedly claimed their phone calls and emails are being intercepted. Tayside police did not find any bugs but told Mrs Collinson to unplug the lamp and take precautions when using the phone. They advised her to buy a new SIM card for her mobile. Mrs Collinson said last night, "There have been problems for months with strange noises and I’ve heard a third person on the line."
At one time only the Home Secretary could authorise phone taps but new laws have given the power to the security service and chief constables. Alex Standish, editor of Jane's Intelligence Digest, said bugging - which can only be carried out in the interests of "national security" - was hard to justify in this case.
There clearly needs to be a public enquiry in the Deepcut case, although the length of time it appears to take for truths to be uncovered is unacceptable and sickening.
Freemasons and murder - a theme which permeates their rituals:
Claims that the masons are obsessed with death and murder surfaced again in 2004 with the death of William James in New York. Masons claim they are a philanthropic society, whose aim is to build character. If that is the case, then what were they doing with a blindfolded man in the basement of a Masonic lodge in New York? They claim they were playing out an elaborate ritual where a line of empty tin cans is knocked over one by one, while a mason sits blindfold in a chair. There is then a mock shooting where the ‘candidate’ is shot at with blanks. Unfortunately for the candidate the gun was loaded with real bullets, and he was essentially executed.
Especially at a time when people in the entertainment business are regularly charged and brought before courts for alleged sex abuse (some of which is true), why aren’t army staff, security services staff, police and politicians who have committed abuse similarly charged and prosecuted? Where is the balance? Where is the justice?
Where were the police and the security services when Jimmy Savile was abusing countless victims? Where were they when the politician Cyril Smith was carrying out similar abuse? There is evidence that the police and security services were well aware of the sickening abuse and did nothing to stop it. Links:
On the subject of the security services and their links to paedophilia, there is the claim by Ken Livinsgtone MP that MI5 used to set up paedophile rings and film them in the hope of framing Irish republican politicians. Are there no depths the security services will stoop to try and protect the ‘Crown’? Links:
It is clear that an independent body needs to be set up to monitor what the security services do. It is clear that funded by taxpayer’s money, they have regularly protected criminals and been party to serious sexual abuse. There is a growing erosion of trust in the British establishment, and we favour criminal prosecutions against members of the police and the security services who have been party to the cover up of abuse in the army and elsewhere. These are serious crimes, and they need to be punished with jail sentences. No supposed democratic system can exist with any credibility that appears to have one set of rules for the privileged and well connected, and another set of laws and rules for everybody else.
As servants of the Crown, it appears that the police and security services think themselves above the law. Again, this erodes public trust in the establishment and is unacceptable. The UK cannot claim on the one hand to be an open democratic country, while on the other hand be part of the disgusting cover up of abuse documented on this site. It is rank hypocrisy and cannot be allowed to continue.
The police and the security services should be employees of the government, and / or the People, NOT ‘servants of the Crown’. They appear to believe that they can stick two fingers up at the law of the land on the basis that they are ‘serving the Crown’. It is quite frankly evil and quite frankly disgusting. Again it erodes public trust in the establishment and poses a serious threat to national security. The police and security services are paid and funded by taxpayers, the ‘People’, and it is an abuse of taxpayer’s money to allow police and security officers to get away with crimes that they should be prosecuted for.
Any democratic system has to have a clear and independent division of powers consisting of: Executive, legislature and judiciary. How can Britain possibly claim to have an independent judiciary when you have cases involving: Masonic police officers, Masonic judges, Masonic politicians and Masonic solicitors? How can The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) possibly be independent when operating in the Crown Court prosecuting servants of the Crown? It is farcical.
We firmly believe in the concept of government by the People for the People, and that is not what we have in the UK. We have government by the Crown for the Crown. So what exactly is the ‘Crown’? It used to be an easy concept to grasp when we had absolute monarchy; it was the ruling monarch, the King or Queen. Post Cromwell, when Britain was a republic for a short time, the UK is now a ‘constitutional monarchy’, where the head of state sits alongside an elected government. Britain does not have a formal written constitution as such, and consequentially concepts such as where power really lies becomes blurred and vague (maybe intentionally so). Parliament sits as the Crown, and the unelected head of state is also seen as the Crown. The Crown is said to be the ‘State’ in all its forms. The Crown is also a corporation sole that represents the legal embodiment of the executive, the legislature and the judiciary.
To us, we view the concept of the Crown as elitist and dangerous. It divides, it encourages an us and them attitude and it perpetuates social division. To reiterate, we believe in government by the People for the People where a head of state is elected based on merit. They should earn power, not inherit it. The Royal Family refer to themselves as ‘The Firm’, and many researchers see the Crown as exactly that, a private company based around money and control. There is a strong link with the Knights Templar who secretly rejected the Christian faith and who became extremely wealthy after they developed a banking system that we still use today. Some researchers go further and suggest that the ‘Crown’ is essentially the financial centre in London which exists as a separate state within the city of London with its own mayor, its own crest and its own police force.
We believe that the concept of the ‘Crown’ is intentionally shrouded in secrecy, and we believe that as a corporation sole it is simply an elitist financial machine based around the financial centre in London (‘The City’). To put it simply, it’s about money and control, and it’s about keeping an elite ‘brotherhood’ extremely wealthy and powerful at the expense of the general populace (the ‘People’).
Comment. The western media quickly tries to label anybody questioning the ‘Crown’ or royalty as ‘communist’ or ‘anarchist’. We are neither, and the choice we have today is not black or white, it’s not one of two extremes, it’s fairness, balance, opportunity for everybody, humane values and family values. We will not allow the western media and some western politicians to portray reasonable views as extremes. Don’t be fooled, and don’t be mislead.
One source puts it like this: The City has a unique political status, a legacy of its uninterrupted integrity as a corporate city since the Anglo-Saxon period and its singular relationship with the Crown. Historically its system of government was not unusual, but it was not reformed by the Municipal Reform Act 1835 and little changed by later reforms.
It is administered by the City of London Corporation, headed by the Lord Mayor of London (not the same as the more recent Mayor of London), which is responsible for a number of functions and has interests in land beyond the City's boundaries. Unlike other English local authorities, the Corporation has two council bodies: the (now largely ceremonial) Court of Aldermen and the Court of Common Council. The Court of Aldermen represents the wards, with each ward (irrespective of size) returning one Alderman. The chief executive of the Corporation holds the ancient office of Town Clerk of London. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_London)
Also, writing in The Guardian, George Monbiot claimed that the corporation's power "helps to explain why regulation of the banks is scarcely better than it was before the crash, why there are no effective curbs on executive pay and bonuses and why successive governments fail to act against the UK's dependent tax havens", and suggested that its privileges could not withstand proper "public scrutiny". (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_London_Corporation)
Like the police, MI5 use Masonic symbolism in their crest, and appear to be Masonic in their structure, system and culture. This is unacceptable in a supposed democratic country. It is particularly dangerous when masons think themselves superior beings, above the common people who appear to be treated like cattle. This clearly seemed the case in the Hillsborough atrocity, where football fans were herded like cattle to their sickening deaths. This concept of ‘superiority’ is apparent when masons refer to non masons as ‘profane’, a word literally meaning outside the temple. When you grasp concepts like these, it is clear how and why situations arise where masons think themselves above ordinary common people, with a right to operate outside laws that everybody should be subject to. To reinforce this point, in the second degree of Freemasonry the password is ‘Shibboleth’, a word meaning elevation above the common people. Even masons themselves admit that it is a word that distinguishes friend from foe. It is clear to us that the ‘People’, the ‘profane’, as outsiders to Freemasonry are seen potentially as foes.
Lastly, on the subject of democratic systems, a country can clearly not claim to be fully democratic if it has a royal, unelected head of state whose children automatically inherit power, wealth and control by virtue of their birthright. Freemasonry is royal in nature in the UK and the Queen of England is the head of Freemasonry worldwide. While it is clear that Freemasonry has a royal history however, it has clearly been used in countries that are not royal and has been used to facilitate revolution. In this sense, it is a vehicle for covert, clandestine control and can be used by any system of government. While therefore we support the notion of an elected, accountable head of state, we do not condone a Masonic republic which brings with it corruption, vice and fear based control.
The reality of the British system is that it is royal Masonic, and a covert sub system exists that operates outside the public eye, pulling the strings of the media, politics and the legal system at will. Some call it covert fascism, others call it the underground arm of the establishment. It is not accountable and it is not democratic.
On the subject of the Royal Family and the Queen having no real power, we believe that the royals have enormous power and influence. They are privy to sensitive cabinet papers, they are privy to sensitive information on which to base business decisions, and we saw the Queen overriding the judiciary when she halted proceedings in the case against Paul Burrell, seemingly for fear that he would divulge royal secrets in open court.

Comment on the British Royal Family:
After the disaster with the Stuart King, Charles I who was executed during the English revolution (that saw Oliver Cromwell assume power as ‘Lord Protector’), Parliament demanded that subsequent kings, including King George I (who was literally imported from Germany to take the throne), agree to reduced powers. This was to try and ensure that the royal head of state did not become autocratic as Charles I had done.
Note the year of the formation of the English Grand Lodge, 1717, and the year the German, King George I took the throne, 1714. This placed the newly formed royal firmly in the hands of the masons, with the English Royal Family staying very close to Freemasonry ever since.
During the interregnum when England was a republic under Oliver Cromwell, the emphasis was more on morals and the church. Since the royals took power again, the emphasis moved back towards the military order of the Knights Templar and the satanic religion of Freemasonry, ensuring that no Catholic could ever take the throne. Freemasonry became the glue that has kept the royals in power. Link:
As promised above, photo evidence:
Alleged illegal spying by America http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-22857062
The Liberation Daily in China has harsh words for President Obama: ‘Five years ago, Obama came to power waving an anti-George W Bush banner. Five years later, he is still exactly the same as George W Bush on invasion of privacy issues.’
The above comment is no surprise if both Bush and Obama are masons following Masonic politics and not the politics they were elected for by the electorate.
A photo of a meeting between Gorbachev and Reagan, also reveals their handshake across the table, as the 'strong grip' or 'lions claw' of the master mason degree (as shown above). Their hands are clasped and the thumbs interlink.
