The Royal Order of Jesters – Freemasonry’s Animal House


Greetings, One in All. I thought to create this several years ago
at the height of the debacle, but other matters were more pressing, and I was certain this
lurid subject would be taken up by others, so I didn’t soil myself with such dross; yet
to date, not a single documentary has been made. This is unfortunate, for the facts are
scattered throughout many sources, and words can only convey so much. Therefore this video
was created, to help cast Light on a somewhat shadowy group, the Royal Order of Jesters. Many viewers are probably thinking ‘The Jesters?
Again? Listen pal, that stuff was over and done with years ago, the Jesters have since
cleaned up their act, It was a minority of Courts to begin with, and besides, the Jesters
aren’t really Masonic, so what does it matter anyhow? I would be inclined to agree, if all that
were true, but this does not appear to be the case, as we shall see. Also, let me state
at the outset that although many of the activities we shall be recounting are indeed illegal,
it is my opinion that most of them should not be. So let me be perfectly clear; the
basis of the criticisms we shall hear, is not that these things are illegal, but rather
that they are unmasonic. For a Masonic organization to behave like the Jesters, defies all claims
of what Masonry is supposed to be about. So to begin with, what is Freemasonry? Freemasonry
is often described as a system of morality, veiled in allegory, and illustrated by symbols.
Aspiring Masons work to advance through different levels of initiation, known as degrees. Many
Masons never transcend the first three degrees. Known as the ‘blue degrees’, these constitute
the cornerstone of Masonry, and contain various morality lessons, which the tools have come
to symbolize. The compasses, for example, are supposed to remind the Mason to circumscribe
or ‘compass’ his passions; and the square, to remind him to be fair and honest with others.
In ‘Morals and Dogma’, Albert Pike gives this poignant description of the fraternity:
“FREEMASONRY is the subjugation of the Human that is in man by the Divine; the Conquest
of the Appetites and Passions by the Moral Sense and the Reason; a continual effort,
struggle, and warfare of the Spiritual against the Material and Sensual.” Unbeknowst to most
of their critics, many Masons truly strive for these ideals, and are respectable, upright
men. Upon reaching the third degree, one becomes
a Master Mason, and as such is free to pursue further degrees in various affiliated bodies,
such as the York rite, or the Scottish rite. These extra, so-called ‘high degrees’ also
contain morality lessons, explain various mysteries, and are generally considered be
an extension of Masonry. One such affiliated body is known as the Shrine.
In order to ensure a “select class of men to compose its membership” the Shrine was
reserved exclusively for those Masons who had climbed to the highest rungs of either
the York or Scottish rite. Due to declining numbers however, the rules were relaxed in
2000, allowing Master Masons to ‘cut class’ and enter the Shrine without further ado.
Begun in 1871, the Shrine was first known for its circuses. Since 1920 however, the
Shrine has distinguished itself by helping disadvantaged children. This was inaugurated
during an Imperial Session in Portland Oregon, when Noble Forrest Adair stated that, while
the Shrine had been materially successful, it had not contributed to the welfare of the
community, as did the Catholic Church. Arguing in favor of the proposed hospitals, he said
“while we have spent money for songs, and spent money for bands,”. . .”you cannot put
your finger on a thing that I know of, that has been done for humanity, that can be credited
to the Shrine as an organization” Don’t worry, he said, if the hospital committee “devote
themselves too much to the Catholic children, [and] the Negro children, we can fire them
and get another committee.” Magnanimously offering to refund the fee of any Shriner
who objected, he turned the tide of dissention and the project began. Aside from charity, and all that clowning
around, the Shrine has another, more serious raison d’�tre. During initiation, the candidate
is told the following: “we are exponents of a vigilance inquisition
to promptly execute and punish the malefactor, the thief, the murderer, the despoiler of
innocence and virtue, the violator of obligation and desecrator of the Masonic vow”. . .”To
arrest, judge, and execute within the hour, and thus take the law within our own grasp
and summarily punish the malefactor”. . .”The day is not far distant when the name and the
escutcheon of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine will strike a pallid terror to the wild devouring
element of crime, and the thankful prayers of the unprotected will attest the justice
of our cause.” Amongst these Noble men, lies a hand-picked
group; the invitation-only ‘Royal Order of Jesters’. These must be Shriners in good standing,
and must have rendered some outstanding, conspicuous, unselfish service to their Temple in order
to qualify. Whereas other Masonic Orders have some animal for a mascot, the Jesters have
a little man, the Billiken, whom, during initiation, they are made to ‘salute’, by kissing it upon
the ‘rear portion.’ Jester lodges, known as courts, admit up to 13 initiates per year.
Groups of initiates are termed a ‘class’, and are given colorful names, such as ‘Spellen’s
fellons’, or ‘Larry’s Loafers’. “The Jesters declare as their sole object the creation
of good fellowship through the medium of gaiety, frivolity and merriment; its creed, wit and
humor without malice, playfulness without destruction and hilarity without vulgarity,
within the context of members’ Masonic obligations and community standing.”
This gay frivolity, known as ‘mirth’, is central to the Order, thus its motto ‘Mirth is King’.
A hallmark of Jester functions, is their performance of an elaborate ritual known as, ‘the book
of the play’ after which, they receive a certificate, declaring them subjects of their new King,
the King of Mirth, his majesty, King Momus! Momus, or blame in Greek, was one of the sons
of Nyx, or night, who also gave birth to doom, death, deceit, misery, old age, and strife,
though she did give birth to friendship so let’s not be too hard on her.
Momus is an interesting character to venerate. A minor deity, Momus was the Greek god of
mockery, blame, ridicule, scorn, complaint and stinging criticism. Apparently, he spent
his time ridiculing all the other gods, going so far as to call Zeus a violent womanizer.
Eventually, the gods grew tired of this ‘accuser of the brethren’, and he was cast out of heaven.
His demeanor, however, earned him a place as the god of satire, and thusly of writers,
and poets. This softening of his nature apparently progressed,
for when the Romans got him, the story became: “Momus, the son of Somnus and Nox, was the
god of pleasantry and wit, or rather the jester of the celestial assembly; for, like other
monarchs, it was but reasonable that Jupiter too should have his fool. We have an instance
of Momus’ fantastic humor in the contest between Neptune, Minerva, and Vulcan, for skill. The
first had made a bull, the second a house, and the third a man. Momus found fault with
them all.” So this much is consistent, Momus’ role in
both cultures was that of a critic, if not a nitpick. One can only imagine what Momus
would say about the Jesters if given the opportunity – after all, he criticized Aphrodite for nothing
more than being talkative and having creaky sandals. Therefore, I find it only fitting
to dedicate this documentary in a spirit of Mirth, to Momus. Long live the King! So who are the Jesters and what are they about?
Until it was taken down at the end of 2011, the Jesters’ official website said the following:
“Whereas most Masonic bodies are dedicated to charity, The Royal Order of Jesters is
a fun “degree,” with absolutely no serious intent.” Their internal documents describe
them as a “luxury organization for only those who can qualify and who can afford it.” The public has typically heard little about
the Jesters, other than the occasional blurb in the press, usually mentioning little more
than the name of the group. One article from 1947 described the Jesters as a ‘fun loving
group, whose members like to get together occasionally ‘for a little mild drinking’.
It seems some 50 of them were going to fulfill the last wish of one of their Brothers, by
drinking a case of Bourbon in one sitting. Another article from 1951, calls them a ‘subdivision
of Shriners who live only for the next prank’ Over the years however, rumors began to emerge
about the Jesters, and the wild parties they allegedly threw. Then, in 1989, something
happened. Few people know that their activities were publicly exposed some 24 years ago, when
a certain Ms. C was arrested by the federal government for allegedly running a prostitution
ring. This, however, was no ordinary prostitution ring, but rather a group of ‘Jesterettes’,
or ‘Jester girls’, that were servicing fraternal events across the country. Her court testimony
was astonishing. Describing the Jesters as a fun-loving and hard-partying offshoot of
the Shrine, Ms. C said that Jester parties were always guarded by elaborate security
to keep away outsiders, that guests were fitted individually with color coded wristbands,
and that armed police officers, sometimes uniformed, were paid $20 to $30 an hour by
the Jesters to protect these events, with full knowledge that illegal gambling and prostitution
were happening right in front of them. She told of one event in Birmingham, Alabama where
an entire hotel floor was sealed off for the girls, with a shotgun wielding SWAT officer
guarding the elevator, and how at another event in Chicago, she was actually driven
from one location to another by a sheriffs� deputy. Upon inquiring about the need for
such heavy security, C was told that “a few wives might be prowling around trying to cause
trouble.” The government did not deny these allegations,
their prosecuting attorney portraying her as the manager of a prostitution ring that
serviced fraternal conventions across the country. Her attorney, on the other hand,
portrayed her as a victim of the Jesters: “Those Jesters, they’re not the victims, they’re
carrying on to this day.” he said. C, who had previously quit prostitution, was
lured back into the trade at a Shriner convention in Milwaukee. She had been approached by the
Tripoli Shrine to do some legitimate modeling in some of their skits. Once she arrived at
the convention however, she realized it was no innocent affair. She said there was illegal
gambling going on, and that a ‘hospitality room’ had been set up with topless waitresses,
two of whom she recognized, and knew to be prostitutes. C testified “One of the fellows
pulled me aside and said, ‘I know where you can make a lot more money than the few hundred
dollars we’re paying you for the skit’.” That, she said, was how she learned about the Jesters,
whom she was told were having a convention in Chicago the following August. The Jesters
sent her a written invitation early that summer, she said, asking her to bring along another
woman. C said they had to send in photographs, and attend a security meeting, otherwise it
was ‘Don’t show up’. “It was slow starting with the Jesters,” she testified, because
other girls had their preferences [of events]”, but later that year she became one of the
regulars, through the sponsorship of a veteran Jester girl who had taken a liking to her.
Of the Jesters, C testified that “Many of the Jesters are well to do businessmen, mayors
and aldermen” According to the federal government, between 1984 and 1988, C dispatched Jesterettes
not only across the country, but to London, Mexico, and many other far-flung locations.
C, however, denied these allegations. After saving up a cool quarter million, C
was preparing to quit the business and marry her new boyfriend, when she was scooped up
by the Feds, who, of course, confiscated everything. “I had a nice little nest egg saved” she said
“now it’s gone.” So what became all this? It sure had all the
makings of a major scandal. Nothing, Ms. C was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 2
years probation, and the case was dropped like a hot potato. The story was successfully
squashed, running in just a few local newspapers. A spokesman for the Jesters denied ever knowing
C, calling her allegations mind boggling; and that was that. The whole thing got swept
under the carpet, and for the next 15 years all was quiet in the Realm. Then, in 2005, trouble began to stir. An email
got sent out to all Texas Masons by a disgruntled Jester using the pseudonym ‘Sam Houston’.
He told of his time in the Craft, calling it “the best experience of my life” – that
is, until he joined the Jesters. Of that, he said in part: “During the initiation of new Jesters I was
offered the opportunity by another fellow brother to sleep with a whore, even though
I had a wife and kids waiting for me to come home. I was not strong at the time and I violated
every oath I had ever taken with my wife. This did not stop at initiation. These were
a constant occurrence at our Jester functions and they are a common occurrence today. The
initiation practices have not changed as well. Prostitutes were offered/made available at
our functions and often brothers would have sex in front of other brothers.
Oral sex competitions between brothers were considered “fun” activities to build a strong
brotherhood bond between members”. . .”Potentates and Chaplains, Attorneys and Judges, Past
Masters and brothers all participating or watching with open eyes, but closed minds.
I often felt ashamed of what I was doing, but the pleasure outweighed the guilt. I had
fallen within a deep hole and my cable-tow had been severed. Sex, illegal gambling and
Alcohol were and are the preferred order of business to ease the “pain” of brother masons.
Prostitutes are available at Jester functions for the brothers to have their way with.”.
. .”I am currently active in the Shriners and the Jesters. I am ashamed of what I have
become and what the Shriners have become. I have seen threat after threat made against
Masonic brothers who have not agreed or have spoken against the activities of our club.
These activities are in every Royal Order of Jester�s club in the USA, and beyond
our borders. You would be surprised if you knew who was Jester from your local blue lodges–outstanding,
moral men–at least by their outwardly appearance.” Even though these allegations squared nicely
with Ms. C’s story, there was no hard proof until 2008 – when several Jesters got netted
in a human trafficking sting. A federal investigation into a massage parlor that utilized illegal
Asian immigrants as prostitutes, revealed a judge and a retired police captain, both
Jesters, amongst its clientele. Investigators further discovered that these men had transported
at least one of these prostitutes across state lines to work at Jester events, which one
U.S. attorney described as “complete sexual debauchery”. In the end, three Jesters pled
guilty to human trafficking, and a fourth to concealment of the crime. Ronald Tills,
a former State Supreme Court justice who had been working part time as a judge for the
Court of Claims. John Trowbridge, a former Police Captain. Michael Stebick, a law clerk
who worked under Tills, and a fourth Jester, Michael Lesinski, who brings Ms. C’s story
to mind. A sheriff’s deputy, he admitted transporting “approximately six or seven” prostitutes to
a hotel in Niagara Falls where the National Book was being held. He got off with a lesser
charge however, claiming he didn’t realize they were prostitutes at the time. All four
were Brother Jesters at Buffalo Court. 22 where Tills had served as director, and had
arranged to have prostitutes at numerous gatherings in the United States and Canada between 2001
and 2008. Tills’ plea agreement reads in part: “The defendant and the government agree to
the following facts” “The defendant, Trowbridge, and Stebick specifically transported [a] woman
from the Western District of New York to Kentucky intending for the woman to engage in sexual
intercourse and other sexual activity in exchange for money with members of a men’s organization
of which these men were members” “This organization maintained chapters throughout the United
States, including in Western New York, and it was the custom of these chapters to host
periodic meetings, usually on weekends, for their members. At most of these meetings,
some members of the organization would be tasked to arrange for the presence of women
at the meeting, for the specific purpose of utilizing the women to engage in sexual intercourse
and other sexual activity with the organization’s members in exchange for money.” “The parties
further agree that in or about Spring, 2006, the defendant arranged for the transportation
of women from the Buffalo airport to the organization’s national meeting then being held in Niagara
Falls, Ontario, Canada.”. . .”The defendant agreed with representatives of the national
organization that he would see to it that members of the buffalo chapter of the organization
would get women from the Buffalo airport to the hotel in Niagara Falls”. . .”where the
meeting was being held” Tills also admitted to lining up girls for
Jester events in other locations, including Florida and Pennsylvania. In sentencing Tills,
Judge Skretny noted his leadership role in the community, calling him a “real life Jekyll
and Hyde”, a respectable role model on the one hand, and a man who victimized vulnerable
women on the other. “Coco is a real victim in this case,” he said “and regrettably, she�s
not the only one”. Skretny described Coco as an illegal immigrant who barely spoke English
and was sold into sexual slavery as a young woman. Coco, he added, was transported by
Tills across state lines to serve as a prostitute at a Jesters convention in Kentucky. The judge also chastised Tills for engaging
in a sexual relationship with a woman whom he had previously sentenced as a judge, and
then recruiting her to work at a Jesters convention. “I view, and I think society views, this as
particularly disgraceful,” Skretny said. Despite Tills open admission that he “agreed
with representatives of the national organization”. . .”he would see to it” women got “to the
hotel in Niagara Falls,” for the national convention, Gary Martin, the Royal Director,
or president of the Jesters, claimed that such conduct is never condoned by the national
leadership, and that the presence of prostitutes at Jesters gatherings is something that only
the Buffalo chapter engaged in. “We believe that this is isolated, inappropriate, indeed
illegal conduct by only an extremely small fraction of our membership,” he said. Some former Jesters disagree. J.L. Edwards
said he belonged to the Jesters for seven years, ending in 1998. Edwards told The Buffalo
News the incidents he witnessed included: Prostitutes walking around parties, wearing
only panties, soliciting Jesters to meet them later in their hotel rooms. “Sex contests”
involving prostitutes and Jesters members, performing in front of large groups of Jesters,
and off-duty cops in uniform, making sure that no non-Jesters entered the rooms where
such activities were going on. “You had prominent people at these books” he said, “ministers,
police chiefs. It�s an elite group, people like Judge Tills,” Edwards said. Another former Jester, Malcolm “Mutt” Herring,
of Montgomery, Ala., came forward and said “I quit the Jesters more than 20 years ago,
and this kind of thing has been going on at least 40 or 50 years,” “I quit because I don�t
drink, and I don�t mess around with other women, other than my wife. Going to one of
their events was like going to a whorehouse.” Next, we shall hear a partial interview with
two ex Jesters who wish to remain anonymous – What did you see at the parties? Jester A: Drinking, Gambling, Pigeon Shoots,
Prostitution, Sexual Hazing. I could write pages on these subjects.
Jester B: Oral sex contests. High stakes poker. Lots and lots of drinking. Porn movies running
24/7 in the hospitality room. What would you tell the other Jesters if you
could? Jester A: Enough is Enough, End this. We can
have legal meetings without all of this. Jester B: Quit lying to your wives. And uphold
your Masonic vows. A Mason is pledged to be a “better man,” not a drunk, gambling womanizer
who’s fooling the IRS. . . .It’s not the organization I thought it was when I joined. I thought
it was for the leaders in the Shrine. I never visualized that things like this were going
on because of our Masonic oath that says we�re not to have intercourse with anyone but our
wives and that is what it boils down to. I thought it was an up and up organization but
I found out that it was not. Another interview with the wife of a Jester
is worth recounting: Sandy: You are married to a member? JW: Yes. Sandy: How long? JW: Married 35 years. Sandy: Was there a pattern of behavior changes
as your husband got more and more involved with the Jesters? JW: When he first got involved with the Jesters,
I thought it was the best thing for him. He met many, many men who became close friends.
They have a saying, “There are no strangers in the Realm, just friends you haven’t met.”
“He maybe attended two [books] a year for the first two years, but by his seventh year,
he had 14 trips planned. Finally, I said “enough, where do I fit in anymore?” “Everything he
did now”. . “was associated with the Jesters.”. . .”John would wear purple, carry purple emblemmed
golf bags, license plates, and boast about it being a strictly stag, luxury organization
for no purpose other than to spread mirth. The more I heard that, the more disgusted
I became. I also noticed that he was not taking cell phone calls in front of me, or he would
go outside to talk. He used to let me answer his phone.”. . .”I had heard about the girls
by accident, about the second year that John was in. He certainly played it down, and told
me he had nothing to do with them, they were kept separate, no contact at all. I believed
him. I didn’t ask any more questions. The Jesters oath is “What you hear here, what
you see here, stays here when you leave here.” Every new member must take that oath. He was
a bit open with me about some of the things that went on, I guess telling me just enough
not to arouse any suspicions. So I definitely discovered our problem after a specific incident. Sandy: Would you please describe that incident? JW: He was at his court�s book, when I received
a phone message: “Hi John, this is Jane from St. Louis. I’m at the airport and wonder if
you’re sending a Jester to pick me up or if I should get the shuttle.” Sandy: Did you confront your husband? JW: “Yes”. . .”He explained to me how it works.
The Jesters have a “pool” of girls. Certain men have their favorites and make requests
to have them at the books. It is up to each court’s Director to assign the job of inviting
the girls, a number based of the number of attendees. They also have a doctor who checks
the girls “papers.” Sandy: From what you found, please describe
what goes on at these Jester functions? JW: Other than girls, there is a lot of high
stakes poker, low stakes gin, and 24 hour hospitality rooms. The initiation involves
“stunts” which I know include nudity, but I don’t know much about it. John says they
don’t involve the girls…anymore. They also provide sightseeing, golf, etc. There is a
lot of good stuff going on. They end with a black tie Royal Feast on Saturday night. JW: Now there is an edict from Jester headquarters
that no girls may be at any of the books. The guys were sweating it out, not that not
only the wives would find out, but also the authorities. Is this true? Have the Jesters cleaned up
their act? Perhaps a bit, in August 2008, a directive was sent out to all local chapters,
forbidding the following conduct during initiation ceremonies: “Any type of physical brutality, such as whipping,
beating, striking, branding, electronic shocking [or] placing of a harmful substance on the
body.” Also included were, sleep deprivation, exposure to the elements, confinement to small
spaces, or other activity subjecting Jesters to “an unreasonable risk of harm.” Although
the Jesters claimed they were just trying to ‘cover their Billiken’ with this directive,
such hazing is hardly unknown to the Shrine, a lawsuit from 1989 revealing that electrified
mats and benches were still employed, in some Temples, at least But what of the girls, after all, it’s not
like the feds suddenly found out about this in 2008, they’ve known all about it since
at least 1989 if not before, so they’re clearly not ‘after’ the Jesters; Judge Tills and the
others simply happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nonetheless, it sent
shockwaves throughout the organization. At the National Book in 2009, Royal Director
William Siders addressed the assembly: “We all know that in the last several years
we have had some major problems.”. . .”We have done everything humanly possible over
the last two years to protect you and the Realm, and shelter you from things that are
happening. If we ask you to do something, or we suggest that your Court not do something,
or do something a little different, please listen to us. We hope this is all coming to
an end. It will never be the same. I am asked that all the time. It will never be the same.”.
. .”We will do everything humanly possible, but please support our decisions, and please
respect the work that we’re trying to do for you, and will keep all of us out of trouble.” So, it seems the parties aren’t quite as wild
as they were, but how much has really changed? Apparently, not a lot. Though this, now infamous
t-shirt has been removed from public sale, Jester invitations still make it clear that
these are ‘stag only’ events. While most all of them flaunt the drinking and gambling,
some depict Jester girls in rather, compromising positions, and others advertise the 24/7 pornography
spoken of earlier, along with other ‘man phun’; and there’s ‘lingerie shows’ in hotel rooms,
and outings to places like Hooters. ‘These cocks are out of control’ reads the advertisement
for this pheasant hunt’. At this recent, ‘invitation-only’ Jester party, the entire hotel was blocked
off for Jesters only – any questions? Ahh yes, such parties, before the candidates may
participate in the Book of the play, it seems they must first undergo physical examinations,
to make sure that they are ‘ready to attend the book’, and the stage is apparently set
by something called the ‘erection crew’. How punny is that? The Jesters claim that the events depicted
in this film were rare and isolated. Their artwork proves otherwise, as the sexually
suggestive pieces used in this documentary alone, span 40 Courts, over several decades,
and are by no means a comprehensive collection. In case you were wondering, yes, this is actual
Jester artwork. Aside from these pictures right here – and that’s that, the rest is
official ROJ artwork. Now I don’t wish to mislead, the majority of Jester artwork does
not have bizarre sexual imagery. Most of it is rather benign, and often falls into several
themes. One of the most common themes, is a Jester, or a Billiken, riding atop something
or other. Be it animal, insect, mechanical device, or just about anything else, there
is probably a pin somewhere with a Billiken riding it. See no evil, hear no evil, speak
no evil, is a popular theme, and for obvious reasons. Often, there is a fourth character
pictured, but what is that supposed to represent? This picture provides us that piece of the
puzzle, though, honestly, knowing these guys, what else would it represent? Mooning is another
theme you see quite often in Jester art. Some pins are about feasting and having a general
good time. Drinking, of course, is one of the themes, along with gambling. Most pins
conform to no particular theme at all, some with quite pleasant artwork. When a pin does
involve a risque theme, there is usually a ‘clean’ version as well. For example, there
are quite a few pins depicting animals in a procreative position, but there is generally
an alternative pin depicting an unpartnered animal. Some of these pins are utilized by
multiple Courts as well, such as the Buffalo pin, which came in an unmarked version, suitable
for any Jester, and a stamped version, utilized by Court 136, as well as the now infamous
Court 22, and likely by other Courts unknown to me. Another popular theme is the glorification
of negativity. Court directors depict themselves as devils, or pins will include a devil of
one sort or another. This handsome devil is available in silver, or goldstone. Many pins
depict the director with a sinister expression, or some other indication that they have given
themselves over to the dark side. Jack Wong is simply going, the Wong way. Jack is an
Oriental Jester, which is something of a rarity. With minimal exception, Jesters tend to be
white, very white, white enough even to tell racist jokes in their national meeting, which
we shall see evidence of later. Some pins have a common criminal, or even a gangster
theme. Or the flip side of that theme, the identification with the intelligence community,
which of course dovetails into the law enforcement theme. A number of pins depict law enforcement
of one type or another, which is not surprising given that the Jesters commonly work with,
or actually are the local law enforcement. Here’s a combination of the law enforcement
and the sexual themes, the tex-ass ranger. Here’s another, ‘Ball’s Busters’. They also
went by the name ‘Ball Busters’. Incidentally, so did another class from Court number 6.
Then there are hybrids of the gangster theme and the sexual theme, like this pimp-gangster
pirate here. Or take this one. We see a jester with wine glass in hand, behind a group of
newly felled trees. The caption reads, ‘because we can’. Looking closely at the hill behind
him, we see the footprints of a man and a woman in a sexual position. Indeed, many pins
with sexual themes are somewhat subtle. Anyone care for a Georgia peach? How about this one?
In case you didn’t notice, it’s a condom, and the class is named ‘Dick’s protectors’.
Happiness is a drunken pussycat? There’s the strange ‘jock strap’ theme. Shannahans stiff
pizzles? I’ll give you one guess what a pizzle is, or you could just look it up. Alright
now, straighten up and stand erect! Jesters are well educated, they even speak Latin,
see? They’re also well versed in physiology. This pin seeks to inform about the birds and
the bees, with a lesson on pollination. Hey everyone, here comes Willie the clown. Pins
like ‘John’s Johns’, although having double meaning, clearly imply that these men employ
prostitutes. The Los Angeles class from 1967 was simply called ‘The Johns’. In 1981, it
was named ‘Royal Johns’. It’s likely that the other pins depicting a toilet carry the
same implication. Here’s another with double entendre, Jack’s Jewels. At first glance,
Jack sits, surrounded by jewels, but are those ‘Jack’s Jewels’, or are Jack’s jewels down
below? Hershey’s with nuts? Weiner’s whining wieners? Oh look, he’s got another drop, coming
out of his, head. Ah yes, the old ‘wiener’ theme. There’s one a Jester can identify with,
and indeed they do. Jesters love such innuendo. Can’t beat boB’s meat. Now there’s a loaded
statement for you. What monkey business is this? Oh, he must be adjusting his jewel.
Here kitty kitty kitty. Jim Kennedy had an interesting pin. It was made in two parts,
so his ‘nose’ could swing from side to side, clever eh? This annual dinner invitation from
1943 is the earliest example I have of a Jester girl. The flyer indicates that both girls,
and heavy drinking, as this poem describes, have been part of the Jesters for at least
that long. Of course, not all the sexual themes involve girls, for mirth is king, and sometimes
queen, you know. Wag’s merry band of weenies, bare assed and free? On the other side of
this lovely glass, are some equally lovely nicknames, one of which I find particularly
amusing. That of the treasurer, Forrest ‘bendover greaseitwell’. Such a suggestion might just
be welcome by Ray Hilken here, or perhaps by the so-called ‘Perfect ones’. Or maybe
by some of the boys over at court 69. But the Nova Scotian Jesters take it to another
level. What is this? A circle jerk or something? That’s definitely not urine, unless urine
comes in spurts. This class from 1992 was called ‘Hurt’s pain inflicting ones’. The
pin depicts a character in a wheelchair, who has apparently been injured by the large cock,
or rooster if you prefer. Not sure I know what this is about, and I’m not sure I want
to know, but it doesn’t look like the donkey is enjoying it. Since it is a donkey, it doesn’t
qualify for the ‘horse’s ass’ theme, so I refer to this picture as ‘the compromised
ass’. The next few pins however, I am sure what they are about, and it’s pretty baaad.
Why is that sheep so worried about the man in the kilt approaching it from behind? Montana
love boat? Gimme a break. It even came in two styles, for the discerning collector,
and also in silver, or gold tone. Now if you think I might be going too far here, the next
picture should settle all doubts. Seriously you guys, what’s up with the sheep? I’m getting
worried here. As far as the trips to Brazil, and the allegations
of child sex tourism, the jury is literally ‘still out’. According to the defendant:
“I’m innocent of the allegations, it’ll be proven in court I’ve told you that before”
“You’ve seen these allegations in this lawsuit Richard what can you tell us about that”
“Just what I’ve told you that I’m innocent of ’em. It’s a set up, it started with a competitor,
an angry competitor you know the story” Whatever the truth may be, it IS true that
only a handful, less than 1% of the Jesters actually took part in these trips. Therefore
I shall not dwell upon them for long. What is certain is that for some years, small groups
of Jesters would take fishing trips to Brazil. As one might expect, these “Jesters on the
Amazon” adventures apparently included ‘man phun’. Allegedly, however, some of these girls
were rather young, some of them even pre-teens, lured into the boat by the promise of temporary
maid work during the cruise. Once aboard, they allegedly discovered that their real
job was to drink, get high, and have sex with the foreigners. Not all of the girls were
dissatisfied with this arrangement, many becoming yearly participants, and some helping to recruit
others. The major complaint the girls all had in common, was they were underpaid, stating
they received a mere 25 to 50 percent of what they were promised. Another witness, a tour
guide, said the same, claiming that the ‘masons group’ never tipped, which angered him, since
most of his income came through tips. Indeed, if the allegations DO turn out to be true,
it’s ironic that much of the trouble might well have been averted, if these affluent
gentlemen had simply greased the wheels better, and not shortchanged the locals. Perhaps it’s
time to review those morality lessons guys. ________ So what does this all of mean as far as Freemasonry
is concerned? Are the Jesters a Masonic organization? That depends on who you ask. It’s important
to remember that the United Grand Lodge of England won’t even recognize the Shrine, let
alone the Jesters, which settles the question right there for many. In the majority of the
U.S. however, the Shrine is recognized, and before 2007, the consensus here would be a
nearly unanimous ‘yes’, the Jesters are an appendant body of Freemasonry. Take this chart displaying the emblematic
structure of Freemasonry. We see the Jesters featured alongside other Masonic bodies, slightly
above the Shrine, and slightly below the 33rd degree. Or how about the list of ‘U.S. National
Masonic Appendant Bodies’? Though the Jesters were removed shortly before the recent scandals
became public, they were included up until May of 2007 The Jesters themselves have always claimed
to be Masonic, declaring they ‘proudly believe and participate in Masonry’. Their websites
repeatedly call them a ‘Masonic body’, the Meta description of one tagged ‘a little-known
Masonic order.’ But what one says to the public is much less
important than what one says to the government, especially regarding taxes. A few years back,
the Jesters’ headquarters in Indiana temporarily lost its tax exempt status. In 2012, it also
lost its appeal to the INDIANA BOARD OF TAX REVIEW on this matter. The ruling was revealing,
recounting the arguments put forth by the Jesters, stating in part: “The Petitioner presented two cases in support
of its argument that, because the Jesters is part of the Masonic fraternity, the Jesters
is a religious, charitable and educational organization and its property is therefore
used for exempt purposes” “In response to questioning about the property’s
charitable use, Alex Rogers [a representative of the Jesters] testified that “the basic
Masonic fraternity is looked upon as charitable.” though he admitted that the “organization
itself had not “written” any checks to the Shrine Hospital or [to] any other charities.”
“The Jesters is part of the Masonic fraternity, which Mr. Rogers testified, is the “highest
respected fraternal organization there is in the world.” According to Mr. Rogers, the
Masons is a “character building organization” whose purpose is to “strengthen the individual
character of a man through its rituals and through its teachings.” “The purpose of the
Jesters is spreading the gospel of mirth, merriment and cheerfulness, promoting fellowship
and fraternity among members, and extending good cheer and assistance to the general public,
which furthers the Masonic principles of brotherly love, belief and truth.” The argument was clear – Masonry is wholesome
and charitable. The Jesters are part of Masonry; therefore the Jesters are wholesome and charitable.
They also argued that since the headquarters maintained a Museum of Jester memorabilia
which was open to the public, it was thereby providing a public service, although Mr. Rogers
testified that the museum is not on the national museum registry, and that the museum’s hours
were not advertised anywhere outside of Jester publications. The county argued this was insufficient grounds
for exemption, partially: “Because the organization does not serve the
class of people that are legitimate subjects of charity and because the government has
no obligation to provide entertainment, merriment or mirth.” The county further argued that
“the Jesters is not engaged in any charitable activities and any educational activities
are limited to the membership of the Jesters.” The Jesters’ exploits would be curious enough,
were they confined to the profane world, but this is not the case; instead, they reside
at the heart of American Freemasonry. This is problematic for a variety of reasons. For one, they connect themselves to Masonry,
claiming to further Masonic principles, while rendering public service. Despite the lack
evidence for this, they still operate under tax exempt status. This allows members to
make tax deductible donations, which of course go towards funding the mirth; mirth which
is reserved exclusively for themselves. In other words, the Jesters provides a way for
its members to take their tax money and party with it. Also, the majority of Jesters, are married,
so their sexual activities not only violate their Masonic oaths, but their marriage vows
as well; and adultery is not the only Masonic offense committed by the Jesters. It seems
they break all the rules. Although these vary between jurisdictions, the following can generally
be said to be true: Gambling is a Masonic offense; it is also
a staple of Jester functions. Intemperate drinking is another Masonic offense that the
Jesters are famous for. Profane swearing? Jesters take it in stride. And of course,
fornication, and cohabitation with lewd women is also a Masonic offense. How can this be? Masonry claims to be a war
“of the Spiritual against the Material and Sensual,” but as the rank and file diligently
compass their passions, some, so-called elders do quite the opposite, claiming to do so in
the name advancing of Masonic principles. Furthering this hypocrisy, many of these men
somehow manage to cling to the belief that they are perfected beings, saying things like
“I’m pure and virtuous and wholesome and innocent, how can you say anything bad about me?” Gee
Bob, isn’t that just a bit prideful? Who do you think you are? “I am Lucifer” Oh ok, well,
forget it then. Speaking of hypocrisy, get a load of this.
Here is Congressman Gus Bilirakis. Bilirakis is a Jester, and he is OUTRAGED about corruption:
“Madame speaker I rise today to share my outrage about corruption at Acorn. Illegal activities
at Acorn offices in Baltimore, Washington D.C and Miami show that corruption is not
isolated. Already under suspicion for disturbing activities such as voter fraud, and in the
2008 elections Acorn employees encouraged prostitution, tax fraud, and human trafficking.
This culture of of corruption must stop. So once more, just what is Masonic initiation?
Let’s ask Brother Wilmhurst: ” � the turning away from the attractions
of the outer world � the purification and subdual of the bodily and sensual tendencies
� the work of detachment and self-purification is our Entered Apprentice�s work —— the
analysis, discipline and obtaining control of one�s inner world – of the mind, of one�s
thoughts, one�s intellectual and psychic faculties – is the extremely difficult task
of the Fellow Craft stage —— the “last and greatest trial” lies in the breaking and
surrender of the personal will, the dying down of all sense of personality and selfhood,
so that the petty personal will may become merged in the divine Universal Will, and the
illusion of separate independent existence give way to conscious realization of unity
with the One Life that permeates the Universe. For so only can one be raised from conditions
of unreality, strife and figurative death to a knowl�edge of ultimate Reality, Peace
and Life Immortal. To attain this is to attain Mastership, involving complete domination
of the lower nature, and the development in oneself of a higher order of life and faculty.”
Wow! Sounds great, and that’s just the beginning. From there, you go on pluming your cap in
the high degrees, assimilating the mysteries of antiquity. Then, it’s off and away to the
Mystic Shrine, where after some time of devoted service, if you’re fortunate, you might get
invited to experience the pinnacle of good fellowship amongst brothers, wild, drunken
stag parties replete with high class hookers. How anticlimactic, as if similar ‘good fellowship’
wasn’t happening in other, so-called gentlemen’s clubs all over the country. It is indeed ‘mind
boggling’ that such otherwise sophisticated men would derive pleasure from Jester parties.
Other than sightseeing trips, golf, and of course the play, the mainstay consists of
gambling, drinking, and whatever else is happening in the ‘hospitality rooms’. Many events also
feature shooting contests, including pigeon shoots. In the ‘calcutta’ style, pigeons are
released from cages, to be picked off by shotgun. The men gamble on who can kill or maim the
most pigeons, which are afterwards discarded. Then there’s the columbaire type, where some
guy hurls a partially plucked pigeon over a line, which I suppose is slightly more sporting.
Although these are outlawed or at least heavily frowned upon in many states, they are one
of the Jesters favorite type of shoots, though they also engage in skeet shooting, pheasant
hunts, even machine gun shoots. Man phun you say? Perhaps, but to me it seems like a cruel
joke. After years of preparation and striving, one reaches the inner sanctum, only to be
invited to engage in adultery alongside one’s Brothers, get drunk, gamble, and shoot pigeons,
all well hidden from the prying eyes of the ‘profane’. Oh well, different strokes I suppose.
If that’s what these men want to do, then as far as I’m concerned, they have every right
to do so. The problem is that it is done in the name of furthering Masonic principles,
under the guise of a tax exempt Masonic charity. When Manly P. Hall called Freemasonry “A fraternity
within a fraternity – an outer organization concealing an inner brotherhood of the Elect.”
was he referring to groups like the Jesters? I certainly hope not, and I honestly don’t
believe that he was, and therein lays the rub. Freemasonry is comprised of men with
differing ambitions, among whom are mystic seekers looking to better themselves while
plumbing the mysteries of the universe, and those for whom Freemasonry is a good old boys
club for the purpose of power and privilege. Chris Hodapp, author of Freemasons for Dummies
wrote: “I once had a friend who asked the question, ‘What good is it being a member
of a secret society if you can’t get out of traffic tickets or get serviced by a hooker
with a cop watching the door for you?’ If that’s what a man is looking for, then the
Jesters need to split from the Shrine and just go be a sex club. And if the Shrine condones
it, perhaps the Shrine needs to split from Freemasonry, as well.” “There have been calls
for years to split from the Masonic fraternity. The Jesters are one more reason to head that
direction.” Brother Hodapp, a Shriner himself, is not
alone in his opinion. Not that the Shrine doesn’t do good work at the hospitals, it
does – but so do many other charities that have no part in Freemasonry. In 1905, Imperial
Potentate Collins adjured all the Potentates “Can we not make a united effort…so that
the world at large may know that when we are Shriners we stand for that which is highest,
purest, best and noblest in Masonry?” Yet today, the Shriners are known as the party
boys of Masonry, and it’s unlikely that all the parades with clowns and toy cars have
done much to improve this image. Two states recently declared the Shrine to
be clandestine. Why? Because the Shrine insisted on retaining non-Masons among its members.
Since the Shrine apparently cares so little about this prerequisite, perhaps it’s time
to relax it entirely. This division would go a long way towards righting things, but
it will never answer the basic question, why? The fact remains that up until the year 2000,
the mirth was reserved exclusively for a select group of 32nd and 33rd degree Masons or Knights
Templar, and even to this day most of the members are on the same level. Though this may seem outrageous, an examination
of history reveals it to be the norm. Most anywhere we look, the leaders of the people,
the rich and the powerful, are wont to engage in debauchery. The Jesters appear to be following
a tradition, long enjoyed by the aristocracy. Let’s look at a few historical examples, shall
we? We turn first to the ‘All-Joking, All-Drunken
Synod of Fools and Jesters’. Established in 1692 by Peter the Great, Czar of Russia, this
group eventually included every man of power within the Czar’s government. Its rituals
included heavy drinking requirements and buffoonery, while masquerades, mocking the Church, and
eroticism, were the order of business. Then there were the Hellfire Clubs, a series
of clubs billed as meeting places for ‘persons of quality’, where aristocratic rakes would
engage in drunken orgies, and also mock the Church. The most infamous of these, founded
by Sir Francis Dashwood, included the Lord of the Admiralty, the Paymaster-General, a
former Prime Minister, members of Parliament, the Prince of Wales, and other notables such
as Benjamin Franklin. The club itself was decorated with mythological themes, phallic
symbols and other sexual items. Calling themselves “monks,” and dressed in vari-colored habits,
they clothed the girls or “nuns,” in white habits and masks, decreeing they must “consider
themselves as the lawful wives of the Brethren during their stay within monastic walls.”
The club’s motto was ‘do what thou wilt’, and its rights, an historian has said, “were
of a nature subversive of all decency.” This was for public consumption however, for though
all of this was true, the club also doubled as a center of British espionage, and Franklin
was British Secret Service “Agent No. 72” after all, why would men in such powerful
positions get together and engage in nothing but dalliance? Or how about Bohemian Grove, where several
thousand high society men – politicians, business leaders, etc., – converge each year to party.
An observer has said “The mood is reminiscent of high school. There’s no end to the pee-pee
and penis jokes, suggesting that these men, advanced in so many other ways, were emotionally
arrested sometime during adolescence” This reminds of the Jesters, who, even at their
National conventions, enjoy humor too perverse to repeat out loud, orated in their official
proceedings by one of their Royal Officers. These lovely jokes are from the proceedings
of the national court of 2009. It seems the elite have always behaved this
way. From Silvio Berlusconi and his bunga bunga parties, to King take-your-pick from
history, privilege often breeds excess; the old aristocracy is replaced by a new, which
in time mimics the excesses of the old. Sad as it seems, the adage ‘power corrupts’ appears
to be true. Another similarity to the old aristocracy
is the obsession with blood. Say hello to SOBIB, who’s Arabic title translates to ‘Order
of Brothers in Blood’ – the ‘S’ supposedly standing for secret, or sacred. SOBIB is an
invitation only order of Jesters, truly exclusive with just 254 active members in 2008. Few
in number, this handful of men nevertheless dominate the Jesters, and therefore the Shrine.
Since it’s creation in 1979, all but one Royal Director has belonged to SOBIB. The proceedings
of the National Court of 2009 further reveal nearly all of the highest officers to be SOBIB
members. Ineligible members aside, all but one past Royal Treasurer was a member, all
but two Representatives Ad Vitam, and the majority of the Royal Court. Just what it’s
members do is unknown. It IS known, however, that some 1 out of 4 either resign or get
expelled, so it’s clearly not for everyone; and while a name like ‘Brothers in Blood’
might conjure up all sorts of images, an analysis of the SOBIB Directory suggests a possible
explanation. Of this small pool of men, many are related, and more than a few are, quite
literally, brothers, or fathers and sons – some of them initiated on the same day. In the
rise to the top, it seems that merit, is not the only consideration. This is an exclusive ‘members only’ club.
These youngsters, born of the right bloodline, don’t know how privileged they are. Lower
ranking individuals are literally, left out in the cold. As a side point, it’s curious to note that
both Ronald Tills, the corrupt judge from Buffalo, Gary Martin, the Royal Director who
feigned ignorance when that particular news broke, and Alex Rogers, who represented the
Jesters in their tax appeal, were all members of SOBIB, along with Jim Kennedy, Neil Hurt,
Tyler Young, Bob Haynes, Dave Curry, and CK. Davis, who’s ‘little devils’ give birth to
mirth. In the making of this documentary, I acquired
information from a number of sources, one of them being Sandy Frost, who’s book ‘Vampires
of Charity’, I agreed to promote. It is a compilation of her research on the Jesters,
documenting the dirt she dug up over the years. While I certainly respect all the hard work
Sandy has done, I do disagree with her perspective, especially statements like “I believe the
Jesters are a nationwide network of human trafficking. Weather or not the girls do this
willingly does not matter.” As far as I’m concerned, it does matter, in fact, it makes
all the difference. To me, it is immaterial weather the girls were transported across
state lines, except that it gives the feds an excuse to transform ordinary prostitution
into human trafficking. Sandy is also quite critical of the Shrine hospitals. While it’s
true that there have been a number of scandals, it’s also true that the Shriners just celebrated
something big, their millionth patient milestone. Having fun may come first, but the Shrine
also helps kids, and that’s something to be proud of. However, if, as initiates are told,
the Shrine is out to punish those who desecrate the Masonic vow, then perhaps it might look
a bit closer to home. Henry Klaussen, former Supreme Commander of the Scottish Rite, once
lamented that “The ancient mysteries later fell into a perverted decline, and were filled
with indescribable practices, in the orgies of Bacchus” yet, even as he spoke these words,
the Bacchanalia was still occurring, preserved and reserved for high grade Masons of the
Scottish Rite, with some court directors actually depicting themselves as Bacchus. Now I’m not
saying that Masons are prudes, and never engage in such activities. What I AM asking is, why
is there an elite Masonic club, dedicated to pursuing anti-Masonic vices? And it’s not
just subgroups like the Jesters and the El Hajj, some ordinary Temples have also engaged
in this game of limbo. For example, in 2001 at a fundraising “V.I.P. Gentlemen’s Dinner”
organized by the Khartum Shriners Motor Patrol, strippers performed for the guests, two of
which turned out to be astonished Free Press reporters. As the girls began to kiss and
fondle each other, the guys jumped in as well, as many as 8 at a time, sticking beer bottles
between their legs and performing oral sex upon them. Elsewhere in the hotel, sexual
intercourse was said to be available for 100 Dollars or oral sex for 75 Dollars. Scenes
like these are common enough in Shriner culture for Ray Stevens to depict them in his song
‘Shriners convention’ where the central character, ‘Coy’ is cheating on ‘Charlene’ with a red
headed floozy, at the ‘No tell Motel’ of course. I must confess, this was a difficult documentary
to write. On the one hand, I truly respect the Jesters themselves. They are, in many
ways, the ‘better men’. Most all of them are, or were, successful business owners, and they
are often involved in a number of charities. They are esteemed, high ranking Freemasons,
and usually members of a host of other societies as well. Pillars of the community, so to speak,
and the heart and soul of American Freemasonry. Though Jesters tend towards the base and bawdy,
most of that’s alright I suppose, but not the adultery. Cheating on your wife is not
OK, no matter what cloak of respectability is used to mask it. Now I’m NOT saying all
Jesters do this, but the Jesters as a group condones it, and thereby fails morality 101.
Furthermore, to utilize a network of Masonic secrecy to cover it up, including the recruitment
of the local police in some cases, is simply wrong. When Masonic secrecy is used for decades
to conceal institutionalized corruption, what might that say of the Craft in general? When
vows of secrecy and oaths of allegiance are used for deceitful purposes, do they not give
good cause for folks to be wary of Freemasonry? The majority of Masons knew little about the
Jesters until they made the headlines a few years back, and even then, many if not most
credulously accepted the official statement that these were merely isolated aberrations
by a few wayward individuals, and never a general policy, as we have seen. The fact
that such widespread deception could occur within the Craft itself, should give everyone
pause for thought. In conclusion, I hope this film will help
to set the record straight. This is my goal for, although I am a lover of liberty, I am
also a lover of truth, and of the hope that both will someday coexist, in an open, honest
world. Finally, though the Order itself may be something of a jest, most of it’s members
are outstanding individuals, so let’s not sit in judgment, for, truth be told, we all
play the fool from time to time. Therefore, I shall conclude this documentary, in a Jester
tradition, with an excerpt from the fool’s prayer: “The ill-timed truth we might have kept�
Who knows how sharp it pierced and stung? The word we had not sense to say�
Who knows how grandly it had rung? “Our faults no tenderness should ask,
The chastening stripes must cleanse them all: But for our blunders�Oh, in shame
Before the eyes of heaven we fall. “Earth bears no balsam for mistakes;
Men crown the knave, and scourge the fool That did his will; but Thou, O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!”

100 thoughts on “The Royal Order of Jesters – Freemasonry’s Animal House

  1. How can you respect people that make a vow and then piss all over it? They seem to display undignified and unrespectable traits and are completely hypocritical in their nature (especially liked the except of Bill Bauchus). However I did like your work here, very informative, but having a real hard time understanding why these ass clowns deserve any respect though, seems to me they're wolves in sheep's clothing and the charities are all part of the ruse.

  2. my great grandfather was a high ranking shriner… & a avowed child molester. He bragged to me that their goal of helping children was all a cover to hand pick those they could repeatedly molest without being exposed. He often sodomized my grandmother until she ran away with my grandfather… who turned out to be another self admitted child molester & serial killer of the highest professional order. all of this is well documented & yet nothing was done.

  3. There has been loads of sightings of creepy clowns all over the place recently. They are always on their own and are very menacing. I bet its these masonic jesters. They probably take orders from high level masonic masters.

  4. The moving force behind the Revolution and the formation of the United States was Freemasonry. As many as 53 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were Masons and all but five of the 55 members of the Constitutional Convention were Masons. <14> They were concerned not only about the physical establishment of the new nation but also about the fulfillment of its inner calling.

    The purpose of Masonry, writes W. L. Wilmshurst in The Meaning of Masonry, is “the expediting of the spiritual evolution of those who aspire to perfect their own nature and transform it into a more god-like quality.” The Mason’s goal is to become “a just man made perfect, with larger consciousness and faculties, an efficient instrument for use by the Great Architect in His plan of rebuilding the Temple of fallen humanity, and capable of initiating and advancing other men to a participation in the same great work.” <15

  5. It sounds to me like the jesters are a graduation party for the highest masons. You've put the work in guys, now enjoy yourselves for a while.

  6. Well that little guy on the pins >Mirth< is a modern version of our ancient Greek God >"Vakhos" or "Dionisos"- a God of drinking and having fun and friendliness . Dionisos or Vakhos is said to have created wine and beer for the humans . Every year in ancient Greece big orgies were held in his favour, many times out in the streets of the city ,as it also had a religious flavour in it apart from the fucking and drinking and pissing all around and stuff . The God (Dionisos or Vakhos) was often depicted covered in grapes or sitting on a wine barrel, just like that little guy , Mirth. crazy right ..
    so many similarities

  7. i can not understand why prostitution is illegal in usa.in greece prostitutes must be examined every month to have a licence,they have to use condoms and to work in a legal `house` and pay taxes.public health is a very important issue.if you can not forbid something,make it at least harmless

  8. Hey michaelrose93, I've been wondering for some time now, about Trump.
    Is he connected to anything like these? To the extent of Bohemian Grove or the Builderberg group?

  9. Stephen Kings IT is what comes to mind when seeing those men dressed in clown suits, especially given what has leaked out in certain emails recently. The devil attacking children, with the parents literally unable to perceive IT. Why is this level of EVIL being seen connected with masonic and elite people? Any answers? Its seems The Goat and Devil worship is more than just allegory for some legs of the hydra.

  10. Batman and the Joker. MASONRY…. The ORDER which fights the Chaos, but funny how Batman will never kill the Joker. Hmmmm…makes you wonder… The chaos is a tool of cultural restructuring in batmans "tool belt". The hierarchy has a place for all… even the monsters….. that appear as clowns on the surface…. but are actual MONSTERS behind close doors. Does Batman elude to the Dracula archetype, those that drink "blood"? literally…..

  11. Wow this looks like one of the best organizations to join drinking and beautiful women where do I sign up. And texas hold'em. Damn.

  12. I am sorry you cannot say that a girl who was kidnapped and sold in to the sex trade at a young age is not a concern. That was even a point made in of the sources you quoted.

  13. You idolize material wealth, you say that it's important to overcome this for a Mason but you defend the members of the Jesters by saying that they're " the better men" because they have successful businesses?

  14. 54:40 Tyler Texas, Skull & Bones Papa George Bush alibi location during JFK's assassination, his being long connected in the plot.

  15. Crossing State lines, trafficking is Federal jurisdiction. That's what the Big Bruhaha is all about, Federal Court Jurisdiction.

  16. The question you're asking/wondering about, here's a riddle to solve. What does Free Masonry, Knights Templar, Catholic Pope, Vatican & Rome, Islam, Shriners, Order of the Eastern Star, Hassissin's have in common? My challenge is to find the answers in Hard Copy form and arcane searching, no internet/online searching, makes it more mysterious. Ask your friends and acquaintances, form a club, find some friends, watch your back…

  17. dude the entire legal system is men being scammed by women.. these girls were there voluntarily getting paid and probably working with police to set these guys up.. bitches scamming men is the entire economy of everything.. especially the black market.. they set everything up then act like victims and men get blamed.. even the pimp is the woman's pawn she uses for protection and obviously a shield so she can later claim she is being trafficked when it's her doing the ring leading..

  18. Mike, it's been two years, please tell me you got something else in the works _. I will buy you a new microphone ffs! Hope all is well and you're having a blessed year.

  19. funny that the females were not mad because they were being passed around just that they wanted more money.

  20. Pale people sucks coping and paste specialist which is backwards Moors teachings and they stole lied murder rape and pillage humanity nothing more then modern caveman in 3 piece suits pirates and savages wanna to be false gods doing some devilish shit LMBO some oxy moron shit

  21. Jesus says, "I have done nothing in secret." Swear no oaths.
    Each is as bad as the other as all are Jesuit formed and manipulated playing the Hegelian dialectic and even have the maker of this duped and blinded to the evil and blasphemy of both or he's in on it and trying to hide the truth in a pretence of exposure. God sees you, know that. No
    bible believing Christian would ever consider joining even by force such filthy cults hiding behind a little charity.

  22. These people say they have morality but they claim Lucifer is the light. How moral can they be?! Shriners are satanic and clowns are sinful.
    Sons of Cain! You masons, shriners, and the like are of the Godless and forgotten, the same as those men who rowed the galleys and the same who pledged their blood to pagan false Gods whilst casting away their very being for the sake of Earthly sin.
    The most precious gift God could give to you was life, when you discard that gift of God and do not praise your Holy Father, you are dying the true death.

  23. i really dont think guys who just wanna be shriners are masons. its a joke, and the hospitals as good of a cause as it is, doesnt have anything to do with what they should be doing…..im in texas and there sure are a ton of shriners……only 60something 33rds…….in texas…..

  24. anyone following my commts: this is truly the number 1 reason i will not be back in masonry in texas, and i encountered similar kinda guys at my lodge, really just one, but the ROJ IS STILL in the masonic Luther's catalogue i shown, just one pin, but still……theres far more shriners than sr or york masons in texas……

  25. im glad that i saw a shriners hospital commercial tonight, get more tv ads out there and take the weight off of just the masons. 🙂 ive never seen a commercial for them in years, i think not since i was a kid.

  26. the reason the shriners fez's is red is because they say it was dipped in the blood of the Christians and the knife on it is the knife they use to cut their heads off.

  27. is this who tortures me and broadcasts my private life when i masturbate or do anything embarrassing or questionable?

  28. " Wisdom ",passed down from one man's mind to another is not wise. You're turning into/following a cult with that philosophy.

  29. The moral of the story? The entire political/financial system is a joke, because the Jesters (clowns) run it… It's a system of make believe, and works for those who have granted themselves a license to write legal fictions, and print funny money… It's all just a big joke in an attempt to control infinite sources of regenerating energy that we all depend on for our survival… They joke people into giving them their freedom by creating DEBTORS (slaves) of us all by our willingness to accept their jests… It's really not complicated… I'll give you some examples of their good humor, Joe Kennedy Sr played the roles of both Harry Truman and Allen Dulles… JFK, JFK Jr. and RFK faked their deaths. RFK became Jimmy Carter, JFK Jr. became Wyc Grousbeck, and JFK became George H.W. Bush… LOL…

    Ed Sullivan played the role of Nixon, John Glenn played the role of Gerald Ford. Will Smith played Obama… I could go on and on, this is funny stuff, no? What makes it so funny is that the public is willing to die for a legal fiction (fairy-tale) They're willing to die for a jester clown upon the worlds stage…. It's all an act… Don't blame these hilariously lovable clowns upon the worlds stage, blame the sucker looking back at you in the mirror…

  30. I guess the Jesters are the dumpbasket for impure bloodlines. They are allowed service as privileged dogs, but not to act as real leaders, who are not any more decent human beeings. None of them should exisit or ever be forgiven.

  31. Thank you so much for this video. It has truly expanded my perception. There are many great lessons to be had. I really enjoy your balanced and reasonable perception. Your very wise and I'm extremely thankful that there is someone like you out there bringing light into the world.

  33. The Shrine was created with the idea to destroy Freemasonry from within. To rob it of all substance and turn away its members from its symbolism . It was largely a success.

  34. I was raised by a 33rd who was a CIA assassin . he had murdered my grandfather and kidnapped me and i never knew my mother . he was working for Tulsa Court Jesters . Boots Adams , president of Phillips Petrol was head of the Tilsa Court Jesters . It was about oil leases. if a farmer had some land with oil on it they pinched him off.

  35. frank phillips , representing Myles Standish estate , and Stuart Fullerton estate and various other european estates such as Fite, studebaker, Rosenquist, Neff , etc were working the oil boom and phillips was the intelligence kingpin and 33rd masons and the tulsa jesters and elks moose were the intelligence infrastructure and they hired many assassinations to consolidate the industry. the drinking and sex is mostly for cover.

  36. Albert Pike …. masonry is ''warfare of the spiritual against the material and sensual''

    does no one understand that , ''material and sensual'' being people, farms , communities , living creatures , indigenous populations, the earth and its natural systems, personal possessions and assets.

  37. it is because of 33 rd mason and court jester Bob Dole and Frank Phillips and and Boot Adams that i had no grandfather and never knew my mother. it was for an oil well..Autry was one of these Tulsa Jesters of whom Frank Phillips was the king pin, and the way he made it was he got a big oil check every month. . Read Fallis ''the oil man''. Phillips told Adams in 39 when he turned the reins over to him , ''i am not going to approve of anything you do but i want you to do it anyway''. Bank robberies were endemic but phillips bank never got robbed. the bank robbers all deposit their money at phillips bank. Phillips was a mason king pin and a bank . it only became a oil company after two decades of various operations to consolidate the industry. I know much of this personally as i was raised close to the main players such as David Peebler of Phoenix oil Co. Foster Oil owned the entire lease for the okla territory in the 1890's. it evolved into Phoenix Oil owned by 8 investors in the 20's. This is who Harry, my paternal GF, worked for . I have dozens of photos of Harry with David Peebler in Pawhuska. Anyway , these fellows were not ashamed of any of this , in fact they were proud of it and if you read Fallis' book he will describe their escapades proudly and it will confirm what i have told you from my personal experience. All of the music industry and Hollywood was primarily funded by this oil money after the boom in the 20's. Many of the big names in these industries had fathers who hit oil in Okla . and no one in Okla or Kansas hit oil and kept it unless they had the blessing
    of Phillips and his Court Jesters.. if you look at my FB page you will see my great Uncle Tom Bruce with J Edgar Hoover. Bruce's father came to the twin territory in 1900 , originally from Scotland , and was an agent of Scottish masonry , for the purpose of privatizing Oklahoma , operating from the whiskey border town Pauls Valley.. there were many operatives with him in Pauls Valley from Brussels and Scotland for this purpose. He Recruited Harry from Camp Pike specifically for the job in the osage oil basin. the Book by Grann describes several murders. The truth is there were several hundred murders. Phillips , from the estate of Doxbury, Myles Standish attacked from the north. Bruce contributed greatly to putting together the FBI and operated as kingpin of the assassination squad for decades. although he was always a shadowy figure. If you go on the internet and search for missing plutonium from sefor , that was Bruce's job and I tagged along for the operation.

  38. I had the playmobill shrine circus… and now I know what it was… they was white shit masons, and I though was a gypsies circuses , as the ones in my family… that was a hard strike in my infant memories

  39. I worked at a resort in the 80's where they had a yearly meet, they rented the whole hotel. They partied hard, and yes there was prostitutes. The parking lot was full of Bently's, Porsche's, a couple of Rolls Royce's. Someone even flew down in a small helicopter. I saw inside the suite they occupied, I hauled tubs of ice to them. There were ABSOLUTELY no children or animals present!! Just a bunch of rich guys doing what all guys wish they could do.

  40. Evil sex cults wasting life energies dropping sperms everywhere,…. Using the female power sex to their evil purposes…… Evil., evil, evil, pure evil…..

  41. They seem like a group of high flyers who like to party,who doesn't.If they are doing no harm leave them to it!!Boys being boys.

  42. It's not against masonry to do what the jesters are its actually encouraged. There are different rules for levels of masonry. They do what glorifies Lucifer the light they follow, the lower nature in masonry is the prudish moralistic side in exchange for debauchery

  43. If you aren't a 30th degree or higher then you have no idea what the masons are or believe. After going through multiple Masonic orders and the templars I left because the truth would make the strongest man break down and weep. If people knew the truth they would hang them all in the streets

  44. In 2019, the jester lineage are unknowingly related so, we're inclined to believe we should oppose each other because combined authority and magnitude of powers are at our peaks.
    That's a invested gesture. See how wee matches greens, tea, longitudinal and latitudinal 'T's (territorial acquisitions), name/word/title lineages, food fetishes, sexual deviancies, passions for the exotic or 'different', invisible battle strategies, communication lines and IRELAND. That's why everyone in the communication stream of 99 and 198 of Kalifornia are somewhat angry at each other.

    We expect better from each other because that's our combined (safelocking) and pan/ultimate potential.

    Jesters who can accept any emotional shame get sick. We lose business and lovers or partners. Our babies are best born in water or we need spinal adjustments because we're from the columnary archetypal vein- the ones who tie the angry people together with the happy ones. We run along long stretches in every way, including themes and we're NOSEY.
    that's a lineage of people who appreciate everything that's gotten too highly strung to be comfortable in our skin (figuratively speaking) by depreciating our most inhibiting values because of our taste for decadence and life.

    Just don't kill or maim anyone and the best things will arrive.
    Remember that rich and poor, everyone's a moral mess. especially THE LOW INCOME because of our sheer numbers and how we get too involved in petty "he said she said" dramas while the wealthy are turning slowly yet aren't obviously involved in the deep involvements of our day to day lives.

    The "wheels" beneath the human mechanism turn so fast by comparison to the slower wealthy wheels that our rotations swing by theirs more slowly and that motion draws the wealth to the dynamics of the poor to spare the wealthy when they drop an egg. drop money 'eggs' to receive reputational 'eggs".

    Were characteristically "stacked", multitiered and layered with GOAT MILK descendant and ascendants.

    that's truth. So care for each other. In media, GET OFF the airwaves if you're wealthy!

  45. Jesters entertained royals but not just royals. They were street entertainers as well. Making people happy. They were the first actors.

  46. I think prostitution should stay as it is. Semi-legal. If old men want to use call girls at their club meets then go ahead. It is better they are provided with prostitutes that are over the age of consent than going a darker rout. I don't say that as a jester myself. I am just saying if a load of older men want to use call girls it does not bother me and at least those girls go of their own free will (in most cases).That said if you are christian you should know adultery is a pretty bad sin. I don't think these guys care about that unfortunately for them when they expire!

  47. I like all the pins. Although obviously they are a bit perverse for my tastes. Aren't you outing your fellow masons by showing these? I guess you are ranked so high above them it doesn't matter! haha.

  48. Poor men have nothing to call their own anymore. Then one of our own does this, so embarrassing. I couldn’t disrespect my dad like that. I guess we all should join the Martha Stewart club.

  49. Old, fat, waddling men. This is why sex workers should be allowed to organize. If they are expected to service such pitiful flesh, the money had better be worth it.

  50. The Fallen Ones among Masons! No wonder people think they're a decrepit lot!
    Well made video though, informative and interesting!

  51. Secret societies and secret orders always devolve into the worst of human action. That is what happens to every human who is not subject to accountability or responsibility. In regard to the Shriners hospitals, I am reminded of Jimmy Savile. He apparently worked with children's hospitals too. And raped hundreds of children, and an unknown number of children's corpses. Think about that.

    Liberty is only possible with accountability, and secrecy is anathema to accountability. Liberty also fails within hierarchical power structures, because of the lack of accountability.

  52. Freemasonary and Shriners and Jesters are a satanic cult of sick pigs!! Albert Pike said 30 to 33 degree masons follow a Luciferian doctrine!!
