The original founder of the Astor fortune was John Jacob Astor (1763-1848). John Jacob Astor was born in Walldorf, Duchy of Baden (Germany) from a Jewish bloodline. The Jewish origins have been hidden, and quite a number of various ideas of the Astor’s heritage have been put into circulation by the Astors. John Jacob Astor was a butcher in Walldorf. In 1784, he came to America after a stop-over in London, England.
Although the story is that he came to America penniless, which may be true, he soon joined the Masonic Lodge, and within 2-3 years had become the Master of the Holland Lodge No. 8 in N.Y. City. This Holland Lodge is a prominent lodge, in that many of its members have good connections to the Illuminati elite. An example of just one Lodge #8 member is Archibald Russell, 1811 – 1871, whose father was President of a real hotbed of Illuminati action for many years: The Royal Society of Edinburgh.
By 1788, Astor was a master of masonic lodge #8. This is rather interesting, considering Astor could not speak English when he arrived in America and supposedly was very poor.
John Jacob Astor was always very famous for being cold-hearted, anti-social, “a man who didn’t have charm, wit or grace”. (This quote comes from a relative of the DuPont family).
If this man lacked social graces and was so cold and was so poor during his first years in the USA, why did he rise to such prominence in Freemasonry? Certainly not because of his social graces. For instance, at a meal given for elites, when his hands got dirty at the table, he reached over and used the shirt of the man beside him to wipe his hands!
The original financial break came by carrying out a series of shady and crooked real estate deals in the New York city area. The next break came when two men, President Jefferson and Secretary Gallatin, both Illuminati members, gave John Jacob Astor a special government privilege. The United States Government had placed an embargo on all USA ships from sailing with goods in 1807, but Astor got permission for his ship to sail. His ship sailed and made close to $200,000 profit in that days money.
Strangely, Astor also profited greatly from the War of 1812, which crippled almost all the other American shippers. Even at that period in history, British intelligence worked for the Committee of 300 and the 13 Top Families. It is interesting that John Coleman, who had access as an intelligence agent to secret documents, discovered the original John Jacob Astor was a British secret agent. The 13 Families have very intimate roles with the American and British intelligence cults.
Prior to 1817, John Jacob Astor entered into the fur trade and remained the biggest player in the fur trade until he got out of it in 1834. Over the years, he had managed to build up a monopoly. He managed to push everyone else out because his contacts, Thomas Backhouse & Co. were a leading house in the lucrative fur trade.
American furs yielded 1000% profit in those days. The privilege of fur trading was a pot of gold that the Committee of 300 gave to Astor, and it could only have happened because the Astor family in Walldorf was already part of a principal occult satanic bloodline. Others in the Committee of 300 had to step aside.
If his position in the hierarchy had not given Astor the right, the other families that originally controlled the fur trade would have gotten rid of him. Bear in mind, white people had been trapping furs in the New World for several centuries and the Indians for who knows how long.
When employees of John Jacob Astor would trap or trade furs with the Astor fur houses, they would he paid with letters of credit. Then Astor agents would be sent out to ambush and kill them, so that the Astor Fur Company could save money. The deaths were blamed on Indians.
One result of his fur company, was Astoria, Oregon, was created and today is a real hot-bed for the secret Satanic covens in Oregon.
THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS
John Jacob Astor did have a few helpful connections. Three of his relatives were captains on clipper ships. He had connections in London to the Backhouse family. His wife was a Todd, a family frequently associated with Satanism. She was also connected to the influential Brevoort family. Finally, John Jacob Astor was also on good relations with the politicians of the day, perhaps because most of them were Freemasons too.
For a few years John Jacob Astor had participated in the opium trade, but in 1818 he publicly quit running opium to China. John Coleman commented, “John Jacob Astor made a huge fortune out of the China opium trade, it was the Committee of 300 who chose who would be allowed to participate, through its monopolistic BEIC, and the beneficiaries of their largess remained forever wedded to the Committee of 300″.
Interestingly another Top 13 family, the Russells, was also one of the lucky ones to get a slice of the China opium trade. It is clearly repeated from history that Astor was privy to inside information in the government and maintained his own courier system. John Jacob Astor bought up large amounts of land in New York, which greatly increased in value. The Financial Panic of 1837 allowed him to foreclose on a large number of mortgages.
John Jacob Astor’s wealth continued to skyrocket. As one biography said, “When it came to a question of principle versus profit, Astor was a practical man”. Put simply, he had no scruples. Astor had a reputation for being a ruthless landlord and not paying his legitimate debts. Astor became a banker and sat on the board of 5 directors of the new national Bank of the United States, of which he owned a large block of the stock.
John Jacob was the richest man in the United States, with a wealth of around 1/15th of the whole amount invested throughout the United States. However, John Jacob Astor’s descendants had a penchant for secrecy and set up things to rule from behind the scenes. After making their fortune while residing in the New York area, the Astors by and large went to England, although they still wielded great financial power in the United States, through proxies.
Today (1995) my estimate of the Astors is that they are worth about 40 billion dollars. One of the many foundations that the Astors created was the Vincent Astor Foundation, which is controlled from England and has in the range of $100 million tax exempt dollars. The Vincent Astor Foundation has typically given to Catholic and Episcopalian needs.
They also give money to agencies opposed to private ownership of guns and give money to New York’s public library. 1971 Foundation Directory stated that the Vincent Astor foundation had its present emphasis on preventing juvenile delinquency. Why don’t I trust the Astor’s in helping out with law enforcement?
The William Waldorf Foundation states that its purpose is “Promotion of mutual understanding and the diffusion of knowledge and culture among the United States and the dominions, colonies, and countries of the British Commonwealth”. This sounds very similar to the public statement of purpose that the secretive Pilgrim Society has publicly given out.
Like the Rothschilds, DuPonts and Rockefellers, the Astors set one of their Astor males as the head of the entire family. On the corner of 33rd St. and 5th Ave. (later being the site of the Empire State Building) the original Waldorf-Astoria Hotel was built by William Waldor Astor (great grand-son of John Jacob) and opened in Mar. 1893. It is described as “the ultimate in snob appeal”.
Later two Astor cousins built the Astoria (another even taller elite hotel) in New York which opened in 1897. Of course, like many of the other elite families, the Astors have their Maine property to get away and relax. In 1894, John Jacob IV wrote a novel, “A Journey In Other Worlds”, where he describes a society which operates on the idea of conserving energy. Strange how the elite likes to promote conservation among us ‘cattle’.
In the late 1800’s, the Illuminati began to reconfigure its outward face. The higher levels started creating innocent sounding cover organizations to hide their meetings behind. In 1901, the Astors contributed toward the creation of the Pilgrim Society, which was the cover organization for Amer. & Brit. 6° Princes of the Illuminati. I believe at least five Astors are now members of the Pilgrim Society.
The Pilgrims had recently included David Astor, John Jacob Astor 8th, and William Waldorf Astor 3rd. During the 1970s, Baron Astor of Hever was the President of the London branch of the Pilgrims. This implies that Astor of Hever was at least the next level up in the chain of command. The Astors also have been very prominent in the Group’, which is Britain’s equivalent to the Skull & Bones Society.
The Astors were part of the financial backers behind the Round Table groups, along with Abe Bailey. Rhodes and Milner were key players in setting up The Society of the Elect, a super-secret top circle of Illuminati. Rhodes Trust in part helped by the Astor, helps finance the Rhodes Scholarship system. Rhodes a high ranking Freemason wanted the Masonic clap-trap as part of these various new groups, but Milner and Brett did away with the Masonic rituals and costumes.
In 1919, the RIIA (Royal Institute of International Affairs) was created. The Astors were the major financial backers of the RIIA which functions as the 4° cover of the Illuminati. The RIIA is the British equivalent to the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) which takes a major role in the policy making process in the United States.
Just above the CFR/RIIA are Round Table groups, which were initially named by Cecil Rhodes as the “Association of Helpers”. Cecil Rhodes set up the Rhodes Scholarships to recruit and bring top men from several nations to Oxford, to be initiated into the Illuminati and to learn about how to bring in a ‘One World Government’. So the initial selection into the Rhodes program, is equivalent to the initiation into the Skull & Bones.
By looking at the genealogy chart you can see how the family in London broke up into two powerful segments. One part centered around the Cleveden Estate. Another group became the Hever Astors. William Waldorf Astor owned the Pall Mall Gazette, the Observer, and the Pall Mall Magazine. The London Times was largely controlled by the Astors and since 1922 they have owned this major source of British news.
The DuPonts and the Rockefellers also have some major businesses where they too, own blatant large holdings. However, most of the wealth of the 13 Top families is hidden so that the ties to who owns it are difficult to track. Hoyt Ammidon has been a proxy for Vincent Astor and the other Astors. The Astor family also used Owen Lattimore as their proxy for opium trade, who in turn used Laura Spelman, who was funded by the Institute for Pacific Relations (IPR).
The IPR was the group that supervised the Illuminati’s decision to allow Red China to share in the Opium trade. The puppet strings behind big world events may not be seen by the public, but if we trace the origins of several big events we see the Astors helping pull strings. The IPR helped lay the groundwork for the Pearl Harbor attack. The Astors also were behind the appeasement policy in Europe, which allowed Hitler to become a threat.
The Astors were also involved in the temperance movement against alcoholic drink which was begun by the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. The temperance movement was an elite created movement. Just like today we have big issues like Apartheid which are made up by them, to keep us busy. Joseph Kennedy and Onassis, two other top 13 Illuminati families got rich of the temperance movement by bootlegging. Today’s equivalent of the temperance movement is the drug war.
The Fabian Society was also connected to the Illuminati. The Fabian logo is a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing! Fabians, like H.G. Wells, made the New World Order something that sounded advantageous to everyone, a Utopia of sorts. That is not what it will be. During the 1930’s, the Fabian Socialists created the Political and Economic Planning group (PEP). Mason Viscount Waldorf Astoria was a leader of PEP.
George Berhard Shaw, who was a communist and Fabian Socialist, was the best friend of Lady Nancy Astor, who became the first woman Member or Parliament. These two spent vast amounts of time together, much more than Nancy did with her husband Viscount Waldorf. After Nancy Astor was elected (or selected by the elite) to be the first lady MP, one of the Russell ladys soon afterwards also became an MP.
Communism pretends it is the enemy of the rich capitalists, but both the rich elite and the communist leaders are committed to wipe out Christianity, to wipe out free trade, by using monopolies and set up an Illuminati One World Government. Do you see they have similar goals? Can we see how the elite controlled press have deceived us?
In summary, an examination of the Astor family reveals their close connections with the full spectrum of Illuminati activities ranging from Freemasonry, the Illuminati itself, the Pilgrim Society, the Round Tables, Communism, Fabian Socialism, CFR, RIIA and the Bilderbergers, as well as the various politically (that is Illuminati) tainted banks such as Chase Manhattan.
DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE THE FACTS
Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World as a picture of things that were to come, most people think as a expose, but it was really more as a plan or blueprint. Aldous Huxley and Alice Astor did a great deal of occult things together. The Top 13 families don’t obey the law, they are the law. The Astors may have Illuminati Kings and Princes in their ranks and may have billions of assets, yet it will all be nothing when they face their Creator at judgment.
Further, One of the unthinkable items that most people do not want to consider is that their leaders who they have idolized may be utterly corrupt. I began a series of articles on the top 13 families, which the top experts said nobody knew about. I did this with the hope of stimulating others to notice these families, and to alert a wider sector of the Body of Christ.
Most of the material put out on the Astors shows the unmistakable mark of distortion by writers and historians giving information in line with what the Astors wanted the public to get. Books on the Astors contain both believable and unbelievable material, fact and fiction.
Some of the real facts may remain obscured forever, but that has not stopped us from getting the most accurate picture we could reconstruct. John Jacob’s son ensured that his father’s lies would go unchallenged, by incinerating all of his personal records, business records and other papers.
