Following on from my last post concerning the digits 11 and 22, it seems worthwhile bringing up James Shelby Downard and his King-Kill 33 essay regarding masonic symbolism in the assassination of President Kennedy.
Downard believed that there was alchemical sorcery of almost inconceivable quantity revolving around the murder.
Someone who appears to believe Downard is musician, Marilyn Manson, who wrote a track called King Kill 33. From the excellent The nachtkabarett :
One of the more esoteric references in Holy Wood, King Kill 33° is one of the most blatant references to the Kennedy assassination after the song 'President Dead', which again represents the theme of Kennedy becoming the Second Christ in the eyes of America because his death was televised and subsequently portrayed as martyrdom. The title is a reference to the manuscript 'King Kill 33' by James Shelby Downard and Michael A. Hoffman. Most Marilyn Manson fans at one time or another have probably come across the web page entitle King-Kill/33: Masonic Symbolism in the Assassination of John F.Kennedy which is a preface and excerpts to the entire 35 page manuscript, and upon reading the excerpt it is a very interesting treatise and is essentially what the song and imagery surrounding the album are evocative of...
The concept dealt with within 'King Kill 33' is reference to the esoteric rite of The Killing Of The King (an ancient, radical version of the Masonic initiation ritual of the Death of Hiram), often associated with alchemy, and particularly how the enactment of this rite was the motive behind John F. Kennedy's assassination. The number 33 is the highest degree of the Scottish rite of Masonry, it is also the degree of latitude at which JFK was assassinated at the Dealy Plaza, the degree of latitude which the detonation of the first atomic bomb at Trinity and the degree of latitude which the the Temple of Solomon in Israel is to be rebuilt, as foretold in the Book of Revelations as one of the signs heralding the Apocalypse, The Second Coming Of Christ
Note that Michael Hoffman is credited as co-author of KK/33. In some circles Hoffman is known as a holocaust denier, something I will return to at the end.
Not far from allegedly esoteric Rosslyn Chapel is Easthouses in Dalkeith. On 3/6/03, a schoolgirl called Jodi Jones was found murdered there. Her boyfriend, Luke Mitchell, was found guilty of the crime and sentenced to detention "without limit of time with a minimum of 20 years". Despite several appeals he is still incarcerated. From wiki :
The prosecution said Mitchell had taken an interest in the The Black Dahlia case, a 1947 homicide of an young woman whose body was severely mutilated in a way that the Crown alleged was similar to injuries suffered by Jones
From the Scotsman, Valentines Day 2005 :
Jodi was stripped, bound and stabbed to death in woods between her home in Easthouses and Newbattle, where Mitchell, now 16, lived with his mother, Corinne, and older brother, Shane.
The schoolgirl’s death and her injuries bore similarities to the gruesome "Black Dahlia" murder of 1940s Hollywood actress Elizabeth Short.
Paintings by Manson depicting the mutilated body of the murdered actress were shown to the jury during the schoolboy’s trial.
Detectives believed the woman’s murder was the inspiration for Jodi’s killing after it emerged Mitchell was an avid fan of Manson.
Lord Nimmo Smith, the trial judge at the High Court in Edinburgh, said he believed Mitchell had carried an image of those paintings in his mind when he killed Jodi...
"I do not feel able to ignore the fact that there was a degree of resemblance between the injuries inflicted on Jodi and those shown in the Marilyn Manson paintings of Elizabeth Short that we saw.
"I think that you carried an image of the paintings in your memory when you killed Jodi," the judge said.
Apparently, many in the legal profession who have been connected with the case believe Mitchell to be innocent, whilst his case has been re-opened given advances in DNA technology. (Daily Record)
Bearing in mind the numbers 11 and 22, it is worth noting Mitchell's sentencing date and final appeal date :
Mitchell's sentencing took place on 11 February 2005
The appellant's appeal against sentence was finally disposed of on 2 February 2011 and in such circumstances there did not exist a live appeal in respect of which leave could be granted under section
|The Clutha Bar - it's name means Clyde|
Let's turn to last year's deadly Clutha police helicopter crash in Glasgow, a crash which has still not been explained although compensation has been paid. From the Scotsman :
THE Police helicopter which crashed into the Clutha Bar in Glasgow had been returning from an incident in Dalkeith.
In a special bulletin, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) revealed the final route of the helicopter on the night of November 29.
The helicopter had been over Dalkeith for ten minutes providing support for an incident before heading back to Glasgow.
Police Scotland said they were currently unable to disclose why the helicopter had been called to Midlothian.
And from wiki :
The helicopter crashed through the flat roof of the Clutha Vaults at 22:22 on 29 November 2013
Note that exactly a year and a day prior, on 28th November 2012, Marilyn Manson played Glasgow's S.E.C.C. venue which is located on the north bank of the River Clyde.(here) .The Clutha sits on the north bank too, just a couple of miles away. (map here)
Allegedly, a year and a day has great importance in magickal circles.
To nearly close, a couple of random "connections".
KK33 - full text linked at end - carries many Scottish references to the JFK assassination.
The above "Manson site", notes that "In America, most children (though particularly of now slightly older generations) have grown up watching the Zapruder film of of Kennedy's head being eviscerated on camera". It also notes that it is still 313 of the movie which shows the moment of "evisceration". If we utilise 313 as a date, in the British manner, we have 13/3, the date of the Dunblane massacre which itself is alleged to have "masonic" connotations.
Meanwhile, returning to "holocaust deniers", it is interesting to note that in the case David Irving v Penguin Books and Lipstadt, the judge decided the matter on an 11th April in a 333 page judgement. We note the date 11th April often here, the 101st day of the year; the date the Stone of Destiny was returned to Arbroath Abbey; the date Prince William received his "wings", the date that William of Orange and his House of Stuart wife Mary were made joint sovereigns of the United Kingdom...We also recall Alex Salmond at last years Scottish National Party conference, and the 333 (Half Way There).
