Beyoncé has had a steady stream of accusations leveled against her alleging involvement in “extreme witchcraft”, “dark magic” and the Illuminati. Just how real are these accusations?
Extreme witchcraft, Dark magic
On September 20, 2018, The Blast ran an article titled “Beyoncé’s Former Drummer Claims Singer Molested Her with ‘Dark Magic,’ ‘Extreme Witchcraft’” quoting court documents submitted by Kimberly Thompson, who had worked for seven years as a drummer for Beyoncé, the “Lemonade” star. Thompson claimed the singer started a campaign of harassment against her, which resulted in her requesting a temporary restraining order against Bey.
The Blast reported that Thompson had claimed that Bey had worked “Extreme witchcraft, Dark magic” and “Magic spells of sexual molestation.” She also claimed Bey had murdered her kitten, tapped her phones and controlled her finances.
The Blast concluded by stating that Thompson’s request for a temporary restraining order was denied by a judge, most likely because of the “non-sensical rantings about witchcraft.”
The less sensational claims of Thompson, which weren’t reported by The Blast are actually very telling. Thompson claimed that she was subjected to “extreme exhaustion, loss of many jobs, theft of homes, … magic spells on my lovers, and numerous broken relationships.”
Everyone goes through patches of bad luck, but to blame one individual for all your misfortune is to claim a mantle of victimhood. If all of Thompson’s relationships were failing, perhaps she should be looking at herself rather than for a scapegoat. For an animal lover such as myself, the kitten murder allegation is worrying, but unless there’s proof, the sad reality is that despite our best efforts, young pets sometimes die. I’m inclined to think that the judge made the right decision in denying the temporary restraining order.
At the time of writing this blog, Googling Beyoncé and Illuminati results in 788,000 results which is indicative of just much time has been devoted by numerous online conspiracists to “proving” that Beyoncé, as well as other entertainers, is a member of the Illuminati.
On January 2, 2016, The Daily Beast ran an article titled “How the Illuminati Stole the Mind, Soul, and Body of Hip-Hop.” The article explains that:
“a secret society called the Illuminati … was formed in 1776 by a young Bavarian professor named Adam Weishaupt. … Over nine years, the Illuminati grew to a few hundred members. … Rumors about the secret society spread, getting embellished along the way into ever more sordid allegations. By the mid-1780s it had caught the attention of the Bavarian government, which put an end to Weishaupt’s fun by banning Illuminati activity under penalty of death. Weishaupt fled and … there’s no evidence that he or anyone else tried to keep the organization going.
That likely would have been the last anyone heard of the Illuminati, if not for the French Revolution, which kicked off a few years later. Searching for an explanation for the unprecedented social upheavals taking place around them, some European authors suggested the Illuminati was pulling the strings. Sensational theories spread around Europe and America alleging that the Illuminati was still operating in secret, more powerful than ever, and that it aimed to overthrow all the governments of Europe.”
The article goes on to state that Illuminati conspiracies were revived by mid-’90s hip-hop.
Beyoncé has an alter ego called Sasha Fierce that “she assumes when she gets on stage. Beyoncé named her third album I Am Sasha Fierce. … Sasha Fierce allowed Bey to experiment with faster, thumping songs while her slower, ‘realer’ persona let her flirt with … slower, more introspective songs.”
On June 12, 2014, Jezebel ran an article titled “Breaking: Beyonce Is Possessed, Sasha Fierce Is Satan.”
“If you didn’t know this —and you are going to feel so silly if you didn’t — Beyonce is not just an amazing singer/dancer and mediocre actress (come at me), she’s also possessed by demons and Sasha Fierce, her alter ego is actually Satan himself. Figures. You know, Beyonce isn’t going to settle for some run-of-the-mill demon.”
The Jezebel article is just one of many on-line claiming that Bey is demon possessed.
Who ever thought that the Catholic Church could ever provide a voice of reason? On Oct 30, 2017, the Catholic News Agency ran an article titled “How can you tell if someone is demon-possessed?”
“Recognizing the difference between a person who is possessed and a person struggling with a mental illness or other infirmity is a vital part of the ministry of exorcism … typically, a person is not possessed but is struggling with some other illness.”
Basically we should never be too quick to judge someone as demon possessed until other explanations such as mental illness have been ruled out. In this case, Bey is taking on an alter ego, much like actors do when immersing themselves in a role.
On September 21, 2018, The Daily Beast ran an article titled “This Is Why So Many People Seem to Believe Beyoncé Is a Witch.” The article explains that:
“Part of the reason why so many are ready to give time to these theories is that Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z have fed Illuminati conspiracy theories for years, in what many believe to be a cynical effort to boost traffic. … Jay has been linked by online conspiracy enthusiasts to the secret society since the late 1990s, thanks in large part to the signature hand sign for Roc Nation, which involves holding both palms up in a triangle formation—believed to be a nod to the triangle symbol that represents the Illuminati.”
Beyoncé’s flashed the “Illuminati sign” during her 2013 Super Bowl performance:
Here is the signature hand sign for Roc Nation:
As an interesting aside, the magickal order known as the Golden Dawn has four grade signs corresponding to the four elements. The “Illuminati sign” looks very much like the grade sign for Philosophus (4=7) which refers to the element of fire.
The “Illuminati sign” derives from the All-seeing Eye, which will be discussed below. While conspiracy theorists claim that Beyoncé was declaring her affiliation with the Illuminati, it’s just as likely that she was promoting Roc Nation.
There are a number of other common hand symbols allegedly used by Illuminati members, but I will be limiting myself to the All-seeing Eye.
The All-seeing Eye
The United States is founded on the Freemasonic ideas of “freedom, independence, liberty, equality (and perhaps fraternity).” However, “Of the 56 men that signed the Declaration of Independence, it appears that only nine were Freemasons, or masons with verifiable records of association.”
The all-seeing eye and the pyramid first appeared on the reverse side of the seal of the United States in a design approved by Congress in 1782.
In 1935 the Great Seal was added to the $1 dollar note, the most widely circulated note on the planet, by President and Freemason Franklin D. Roosevelt.
For Freemasons, “The All-seeing Eye symbolizes that oversight of Almighty God necessary to maintain that domination of the spiritual over the earthly, or material.”
It is interesting to note that “There is no evidence that the Bavarian Illuminati used the eye in any of its rituals.”
However, to Illuminati conspiracy theorists, “the all-seeing eye represents the Eye of Lucifer. The Eye can see all and oversees its minions which are represented by the individual bricks of the pyramid. The 13 steps of the pyramid represent the 13 Illuminati Bloodlines which collectively rule over the planet. The year 1776 represent the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati by Adam Weishaupt.”
There is a Facebook page for a Community organisation called “The Illuminati”. It is liked by 4.2 million people. Its posts read like a quotation calendar. Despite this there are occasional requests to join.
There is an internet site called Illuminatiam, which claims to be “an official website of the Illuminati.” They claim that:
“Millions of people from all walks of life have committed themselves to the Illuminati’s global work for the betterment of the human species. By forgoing all divisions of religious, geographical, or political beliefs, followers of Illuminatiam strive to form a planet where all people, in all places, can live in Abundance.”
They have their own website and a TV commercial, so they have to be legit, right? Besides, “millions” of people can’t all be wrong.
In a world of great uncertainty is it surprising that many want to join what they believe is the winning team and live in abundance rather than scraping by from paycheck to paycheck?
Is Beyoncé part of the Illuminati?
On September 3, 2018, The Week uploaded an article titled “Who are the Illuminati and what do they control?”
“The internet is awash with theories about the Illuminati, a mysterious group that conspiracy theorists believe is seeking a ‘New World Order’ that would impose a totalitarian world government. Among the alleged members of the secret society are not just politicians and religious leaders, but actors and pop stars. … one of the core beliefs of Illuminati watchers is that the entire entertainment industry has been infiltrated and that Illuminati members are using the media to brainwash the masses. …
Conspiracy theorists obsessively analyse public events for ‘evidence’ of Illuminati influence. The symbols most associated with the Illuminati include triangles, pentagrams, goats, the all-seeing eye – such as the one that appears on US bank notes – and the number 666.”
Much of what is available online about the Illuminati is pure speculation. Endless repetition of speculation doesn’t make it fact. It does, however, wear down resistance and give it an air of plausibility, which just happens to be the way propaganda works.
What do we know for sure? Politicians from both parties in the USA are owned by billionaires, corporate interest groups and lobbyists. Donations always come with strings attached. Politicians come and go, and they make it obvious that they do not represent the best interests of the people, but rather those of their donors.
Particularly worrying are the contributions that “have come to be called ‘dark money’ because the donors can remain secret. The very wealthy can contribute to such dark money groups in the knowledge that people won’t know who is trying to buy a candidate.”
In ancient Rome, the people would be distracted by bread and circuses, meaning food and entertainment. Nothing has changed and the same policy is just as effective now as it was then. People today are distracted a dizzying array of food, but more importantly, they are distracted by extravagant entertainment which takes the form of sports, films and the music industry. Were the circus performers in ancient Rome party to a conspiracy to control the public? Not consciously – they were doing what they do best – providing entertainment. Similarly, I don’t believe that sports stars, movie stars and musicians are consciously involved in influencing the public. Their role is to distract the public, providing a smokescreen for very rich and powerful individuals along with huge corporations to pursue their goals unnoticed.
Sports stars generally have short careers. Some movie stars work their entire lives, while others have very short careers. As with movie stars, some musicians are lucky enough to work their entire lives while others have short careers. To hedge the odds in their favor, musicians will often latch onto gimmicks that will yield them publicity.
On June 18, 2018, Artnet News uploaded an article titled “Art History, or the Illuminati? What Jay-Z and Beyoncé Are Really Up to With Their Viral New Louvre Video.”
“Jay-Z and Beyoncé have made great sport, over the years, of playing teasingly with Illuminati conspiracy theories. An entire genre of YouTube videos sees amateur symbologists go into an interpretive frenzy every time a pop star covers one eye, reading it as a reference to the Eye of Horus, or seeing every checkerboard floor as a nod to the Masonic Lodge (it signifies the balance of good and evil, don’t you know).
Controversy is good for traffic, and this particular controversy is bought cheap, given the fever swamp that is the internet. Stars from Kanye to Kesha have made a habit of injecting Illuminati symbolism into their videos in hopes of getting a viral lift.”
The video referred to comes from the album titled “Everything Is Love.”
We thus come to the conclusion that Beyoncé is not a member of the Illuminati but latches onto symbols that have come to be associated with the Illuminati for notoriety and to increase her popularity.
Illuminati – Fact or Fiction?
We are left with one final question. Is there are secret cabal, possibly known as the Illuminati, working towards globalization?
There is definitely a push towards promoting globalization as the solution to many of the world’s problems, including poverty.
Consider the Davos summit, “Colloquially known as Davos for the Alpine resort town in which it’s held, the Annual Meeting is hosted by the World Economic Forum (WEF), a Swiss nonprofit foundation. It brings together global leaders from different sectors, including business, politics, academia, and journalism, for several days to discuss the most pressing issues facing the world. Typically, more than 2,000 people are invited to attend, participate, or cover the event.”
“A report by Oxfam published in advance of the Davos summit revealed that half of the world’s population received no share of all wealth created globally in 2017.
Instead, billionaires increased their wealth by $762bn last year , enough to end ‘global extreme poverty seven times over’, the UK-based charity’s annual inequality report said.”
While speculation is entertaining, nothing compares to verification from a credible insider. David Rockefeller in his book, “Memoirs” first published in 2002, admitted he was part of a secret cabal working to create a new world order, on page 405:
“Some even believe we [Rockefeller family] 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 and economic structure – One World, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
It is thus very probable that is a secret cabal of politicians and business leaders working towards globalization. The waters are muddied by the billionaires influencing politicians to further their own agendas. The lack of a unified goal amongst these billionaires indicates that they have self-serving interests and are like wild cards. As time goes on, it seems inescapable that the citizens of this planet will be united under a one world government. This won’t be for the benefit of an Antichrist, but rather for the benefit of a group of billionaires and huge corporations who are already profiting from access to cheap labor and materials from third world countries..
While I’m sure that conspiracy theorists who obsessively analyze actors and pop stars for evidence of Illuminati influence mean well and are genuinely concerned with the future of the planet, they really should be focusing on billionaires and CEOs of huge corporations, as these are the puppet masters. Carefully monitoring these people would give a far better indication of the unseen forces shaping our lives. It’s blatantly obvious, however, that actors and pop stars are much sexier, and will garner far more attention than old men in suits. Nothing will change. Actors and pop stars will continue to distract attention away from those pulling the strings.
