Quick Look at 2 Famous Masons [opinion]

final draft




I have chosen two famous masons for my 2016 assignment. I want to begin with a quick disclosure on my research technique. There is much Masonic / Secret Society conspiracy information written about each of my selections. I must disclose I had a tough time finding direct lodge ‘membership record’ data on either. The sheer volume of written speculation combined with a few provable data points will form the basis for my conclusions.

William Jefferson Clinton was the 42nd president of the United States. Bill Clinton has achieved membership in the Trilateral Commission, Council of Foreign Relations [1989], is a Rhodes Scholar [University Oxford], and a Bilderberger participant. [http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/uspresidentasmasonspt4.htm] Born August 19th, 1946 [city of Hope, Arkansas], Clinton became the Governor of Arkansas for the terms during 1979 to 1981, and 1983 to 1992. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Clinton#Early_life_and_career] Bill Clinton himself has disclosed his DeMolay membership in his autobiography, My Life. Clinton describes inspirations during this time, Catholics, music, and his DeMolay ritual, from the bottom of page 44 to page 45. He closes this memory by stating, at that immediate time, he did not graduate to a full Masonic Lodge. However, he does make mention of his observations regarding Prince Hall Masonry, and all the fun they seemed to have during specific witnessed gatherings. This observation was developed during his governorship of Arkansas. [http://bessel.org/clinton.htm]

My second famous Mason is Hillary Clinton. Most masons take a vow never to ‘make or be present to the making [of] a woman a mason,’ but here is what I found…

Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton was born October 26th, 1947. Her first days were spent in Park Ridge, Illinois. She attended Wellesley College [graduated 1969], and earned her J.D. from Yale Law School in 1973. She was a U.S. Senator for New York State [2001-2009], First Lady of the United States [1993-2001], and the 67th US Secretary of State [2009-2013]. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Clinton]

There is an article from the 10/31/2017 edition of The Greenwich Village Gazette disclosing a fact that during the article’s research, many people from Arkansas found so common that they have ‘forgotten’ about it. Hillary Clinton is reported to have joined OES, The Order of Eastern Star, soon after marrying Bill Clinton in 1975. The article confirms the story with a witness from MI [Michigan], who chose to remain anonymous, gave the article writer testimony to factual ‘classified’ evidence as verbal proof. [http://www.gvny.com/richard_schiff_section/toby_rogers10-31-07.htm]

The Order of Eastern Star is an appendant Masonic body established in 1805. This organization is open to men and women. OES is based upon biblical teachings, but is open to petitioners of all faiths. In recent days, women have been required to be ‘relatives’ of a freemason. Men who apply should first achieve the level of Master Mason. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Eastern_Star]

Queen Esther Chapter No. 1 [Washington, D.C.] became the first Prince Hall Mason OES affiliate in December, of 1874. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Eastern_Star] The main charities OES contributes to are Alzheimer’s disease, Juvenile Diabetes, and Juvenile Asthma research.


There are some specific qualities that all women’s Masonic groups have in common. Specifically, I would like to briefly mention Co-Masonry and Women Freemasonry Lodges. [http://www.masonic-lodge-of-education.com/women-freemasons.html] Co-Masonic Lodges admit both men and women. Women Freemasonry admits only women. Both lodges strictly pursue what is simply termed, the ‘Parallel Fraternal Spirit.’ Parallel Fraternal Spirit is the recognition of the important focus on service to all peoples. Both lodges also strive to match the same classical Masonic Ideals put forth by the ancient craft. [http://www.masonic-lodge-of-education.com/women-freemasons.html]

Masonic Education for English and American women differs slightly… Women’s Freemasonry in England teaches about the Common Gavel, the 24 Inch Gauge, and the Chisel for the E.A. Degree; The Plumb, Rule, and Square for the Fellowcraft; and the Master Mason teaches about the Skirret, Pencil, and the Compasses[http://www.masonic-lodge-of-education.com/women-freemasons.html]

Skirret:  One of The Working Tools

A skirret is a line of cord on a reel.  At the loose end of the cord is a stake.  Within Freemasonry, It is used symbolically to create a straight and undeviating line of conduct.  The spool of cord resides on a cord holder which freely rotates on a center pin.  We might commonly see this tool used by a gardener in which to create straight rows of crops.

The rotating cord holder reels out the cord which is stretched tightly.  In this way, the skirret was used to mark out straight lines to create not only straight rows of crops, but perfectly straight lines for the foundation of a building or edifice…


There are five common ‘features’ of Women Freemason Lodges…

1] Membership is by invitation only; 2] All are eligible regardless of race, creed, ethnic background or sex; 3] Each local group is titled ‘an Obedience;’ 4] ALL members must Actively Participate or Resign; and 5] Gatherings are all Formal, not social occasions

There are a few differences between these lodges. In Le Droit Humain lodges, there is no Masonic ‘G’ on display. Droit Lodges are not connected formally with Freemasonry, and are known as clandestine lodges when mentioned in the context of regular Masonic organizations. However, Women’s Freemason Lodges are generally free to visit each Le Droit lodges. Finally, American Female Freemason’s education does not include the skirret, the chisel, or the pencil.

Hiding in Plain Sight…

final draft

Two Examples of Clandestine Masonry…

Clandestine Masonic Lodges is a concept discussed during dinners and fireplace chats in many lodges I have visited. They represent a curio more often spoken of or retold as mentioned as a sister’s friend’s teacher’s veterinarian’s shop keeper’s lodge. This short paper will present in short order and by no means definitive two famous cases of what are known as Clandestine Masonic Lodges. For the purposes of this paper, Clandestine is defined as root ‘secret’ or ‘hidden.’ Clandestine is derived from the French translation ‘done in a hiding place, against the laws…” (https://encyclopediaoffreemasonry.com/c/clandestine/) The more approximate Masonic phrase is usually ‘Irregular,’ or ‘making small departures from Grand Lodge official Masonic customs.’

The first example is in regards to the American Masonic Federation. This organization was brought to trial in the United States Federal Court in Utah. It was subsequently written up in book format with the assistance of Brother M.G. Price. It was ensured that neither the judge nor jury members were masons, and the course of legal action resides within the ‘general Ignorance of the Masonic Craft on Masonic History and Law, and the Inability of the general public to disprove American Masonic Lodge claims and statements.’ (https://encyclopediaoffreemasonry.com/c/clandestine/)

The conviction was arrived at in Salt Lake City Federal Court, Utah, on May 15th 1922. The men convicted of operating a clandestine lodge, and more importantly, of committing mail fraud and general business mismanagement were Matthew A. McBlain Thomson (main perpetrator), Thomas Perrot, and Dominic Bergera (posing as organization’s Treasurer General).

An investigation into the activities of ‘The American Masonic Federation’ began in 1915. It describes a 15 year scam headed by Matthew McBlain Thomson who claimed to be the former member of Two Scotland Lodges, and the Past Master of one. Matthew McBlain Thomson first affiliated in the United States with Montpelier, Idaho King Solomon Lodge No. 27. Mr. Thomson removed himself from Grand Lodge Radar swiftly, taking a good demit. He then proceeded to start the American Masonic Federation, which would claim to have 10,000 internationally recognized members- known to ‘practically every country in the world.’ (https://encyclopediaoffreemasonry.com/c/clandestine/) He would also later be recognized as falsely selling his credentials, which he packaged as legitimate ability to confer Masonic Degrees. Mr. Thomson had a very good story to sell, and because of the innate writing of obligations masons take, was very difficult to testify against in U.S. Court.

Matthew McBlain Thomson formulated the claim that, except Louisiana, the United States was ‘unoccupied territory Masonically (1)… and not one of the Grand Lodges in the US had a Charter authorizing it to do Masonic work.(2) Historically, the Thirteen Colonies organized a Grand Lodge of its own manifestation, without ever obtaining consent of any Grand Lodge from which their Charters were originally obtained.(3) He described that the United States Masonic Jurisdictions, by breaking away from their home Grand Lodges of Great Britain without prior consent, made them immediate irregular and clandestine operations. This oversight made the United States open to any regular organization that chose to occupy it. (4) Moving forward, historical recognition by the Grand Lodges of Britain did not make these ‘self-created’ Grand Lodges of the United States legitimate,(5) making all US Grand Lodges immediately Clandestine. Most especially, because US Grand Lodges are not all universal and refuse to recognize the Freemasons in other countries because of free selection of religion, race, and other local variances, the entire concept of limiting choice runs contrary to the principles of Natural Universality. (6) (https://encyclopediaoffreemasonry.com/c/clandestine/) Matthew McBlain Thomson then claimed lawful descent from the Lawful Charters of Mother Kilwining Lodge No. 0 of Scotland, and St. Johns Mother Lodge at Marseille, France. Continuing with his logic, St. John later chartered Polar Star Lodge, Louisiana, in 1794. (7) This lodge became part of the Supreme Council of Louisiana, and on September 14th, 1906, Matthew McBlain Thomson stated he was granted a Charter of Authority to form Craft or Symbolic Grand and Subordinate Lodges of Masons. It was through this authority that Mr. Thomson granted a Charter to the Grand Lodge of Inter- Montana. (8)

Thomson continued his logic by stating because of the above conditions, that HE had single sole and TRUE authority, since he / it came from Scotland. Naturally, because all other US Scottish Rite so-called lodges Originated from the United States OR came from France, his authority was correct because it came from Scotland. With his Masonic basis in place, Matthew McBlain Thomson went on to claim full authority to authorized learning’s of Higher Degrees in Masonry by Virtue of Charter from the Rites of Scotland AND, this body was ‘the Oldest High Degree Body in the World.’ It should now be quite apparent, as delineated by Thomson, that ‘all High Degree Diplomas came directly from Grand Council in Scotland.’ Just to refresh the argument, Mr. Thomson claimed the Grand Council of Rites derived originally from Mother Kilwinning Lodge. This was Matthew McBlain Thomson’s ‘Chain of Title’ and the evidence he presented in his defense.

Chain of Title and Rite to Work established, Mr. Thomson was described to have sent out organizers whose duty it was to ‘organize’ Lodges, and confer Masonic Degrees. These Craft degrees were recorded in court records to cost between $535 to $550, with the average cost being reported as $550. Also, for a few dollars more, Scottish Rite Degrees from Fourth to the Thirty-third could be obtained. The price schedule for advanced degrees were $135 to $200. Shrine and / or Templar Degrees were sometimes conferred as ‘bonus’ options. (https://encyclopediaoffreemasonry.com/c/clandestine/)

The US prosecution stated there wasn’t a sound link in the American Masonic Organization’s chain. They presented the start of investigation began when a Mr. Ranson was arrested in St. Louis, 1915. A Post Office Inspector in charge of St. Louis opted to pass the case to U.S. Government in charge of using the USPS Mail with intent to defraud. Inspector M.G. Price was assigned to instigate the reported behavior. He entered official and formal proceedings in 1919, and over the next five years chased down facts and witnesses in the United States, Scotland, France in order to determine the veracity of all tangential claims.

A Federal Indictment was pursued for this Clandestine Lodge, naming Matthew McBlain Thomson, Thomas Perrot, Dominic Bergera and Robert Jamieson, in Federal Suit at United States District Court, Salt Lake City, Utah. The regular judge of this circuit was a Freemason, and every attempt to show fairness in fact-finding was taken. One Judge Wade, know to all to be very fair and honest was given charge of the case. Witnesses of Thomson’s organization, three officers of various Masonic Grand Bodies of Scotland, and several brethren of Masonic Bodies of the United States, were all subpoenaed. It was the intent of the court to determine the legality of Mr. Thomson’s Organization, the Methods used, and the representations made. (https://encyclopediaoffreemasonry.com/c/clandestine/) The Scottish Brethren testified as to Masonic History, and Law in Scotland. They told the court that Mother Kilwinning Lodge has a copy of every Charter ever issued, and it Never issued a charter as Lodge in Marseille, France. Statements were given that the Grand Council of Rites of Scotland were considered to be Clandestine, AND members of legitimate Scottish Lodges were forbidden to be members of it, or have any Masonic Dealings with said organization. Two Officers of the Supreme Council Louisiana testified their Council Never granted Charter to Thomson for the purpose of working Craft Degrees. The U.S. government also highlighted contradictory statements contained within Thomson Publication’s materials.

Judge Wade read in a Guilty verdict in preponderance of the evidence, and ordered each to serve 2 years in federal penitentiary and to each pay a fine of $5000. All traveling stories and foreign lodge dealings were rule ‘false representations,’ with no real authority of foreign charters, no evidence of correct and proper use and storage of business monies, or regular ‘business-like manner for the benefit of the organization.’ (https://encyclopediaoffreemasonry.com/c/clandestine/) Judge Wade estimated the amount of fees, mail order degree or otherwise, to be in the amount in excess of $1,000,000; all of which was unaccountable at time of trial. The court found no business account ever mentioned in testimony. No storage location or Secretary’s transaction ledgers could be recalled or confiscated. The prosecution asked the court for five-year prison terms, but because of Mr. Thomson’s age, Judge Wade surmised two years at Leavenworth Prison, and the accompanying Five thousand dollar penalty, to be fair and equitable for each man involved in this Clandestine Scam.

The second Clandestine lodge of this paper will describe the Propaganda Due, or P2 Lodge of Italy. This Masonic Lodge operated under the Jurisdiction of the Grand Orient Lodge of Italy, from 1945 to 1976. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due The lodge was eventually determined to be operating as a covert or Clandestine lodge, also known to refer to a ‘Black’ or illegally operating in contravention of Article 18 of the authority’s Constitution of Italy banning such Lodge from activities in the period of 1976 to 1981. The Lodge was determined to be in disregard for Grand Orient Lodge Authority, as it continued operations after the following information was heard and actually ruled upon.

A man named Licio Gelli was the known and installed head of P2. This organization was accused of many crimes and mysteries, including the collapse of Vatican Affiliated Banco Ambrosiano, the murders of Mino Pecorelli, a banker named Roberto Calvi, the Targentoploli Bribe Scandal, and the collapse of Michele Sindona’s financial empire. Propaganda Due is sometimes considered a ‘state’ within a State, or a Shadow Government. Seized documents from Licio’s stash were later made public. Many names of recognizable people from Italian Parliament, industrialists, and military leaders were written down. During the same search of Licio Gelli’s villa, police found a document called ‘Plan for a Democratic Rebirth’ which outlined concepts of consolidation of the media, suppression of trade unions, and the notion of necessity of rewriting the Italian Constitution. P2 was also known to have activities in Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

Propaganda Due was originally founded in 1877 in Turin. It was titled ‘Propaganda Massonica.’ The lodge was popularized and frequented by officials and politicians unable to attend their own mother lodge while away on business. Members of P2 were also individuals of the Piedmont nobility. After World War II, the Grand Orient Lodge of Italy decided to renumber its lodges. The original name was changed to ‘Propaganda Due,’ but by the 1960’s, attendance declined and fewer communications were held. Freemasonry in general was ‘reborn’ after WWII with American encouragement. The Fascist Regime of Benito Mussolini outlawed Freemasonry, and the full tide of free thought had yet to wash upon Italy’s shores. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

Free-thinking as we understand it to be in the United States today was curtailed in favor of anti-communistic thought. The Italian Grandmaster LIno Salvini of Grand Orient Lodge found this repression to again threaten the fundamentals of obligations. In 1971, Salvini assigned Licio Gelli to ‘reorganize’ P2 and ‘calm the fears of the brethren.’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due Under the Grandmaster’s authority, Gelli obtained lists of ‘sleeping members’ and regenerated lodge membership from a mixed composite creation. These men were often determined to be men not invited to take part in Masonic Rituals anymore because Italian Freemasonry was, at that time, under the scrutiny of the Christian Democrats. An example of what a ‘sleeping member’ might look like would be a current man of The Order of Former Freemasons. This is an evangelical discipleship of Christian men once members of formal Masonic Lodges. The Christian Democrats of that time represented Catholic School Teachings, previously tainted by illegal trade import quotas [banana] and an illegal and misprinted postage stamp scandal.

The confusing political climate was further shaded by the Italian Grand Orient’s verdict to first be interpreted as ‘Suspending’ P2 activities. In 1978, Gelli was documented in ‘financing’ a particular mason’s campaign for Grandmaster. By 1981, the strength and independence of Propaganda Due was determined to be anti-nationalistic. Another Masonic Tribunal decided the previous 1974 trial and vote verdict actually to have determined that the P2 Lodge Factually ceased to exist. This ruling extended to Gelli’s and P2’s activities to be viewed as Clandestine, and therefore, illegal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due It was later postulated that P2 might have represented (1) A standby government in case the Italian Communist Party obtained electoral victory, or that (2) P2 was specifically raised to affect and improve the political careers of members with the end result of making powerful connections. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

Activities of Propaganda Due were discovered by prosecutors while investigating Michele Sindona, the collapse of his bank, and any suspected ties to the Mafia. Police found several critical documents in Gelli’s house. The Prime Minister Amaldo Forlani proceeded to appoint a Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry, to be headed by Christian Democrat Tina Anselmi. Forlani’s chief of cabinet was a known P2 member, but no circumstance prevented Forlani’s demise and subsequent resignation. The results of the investigation and their scandalous nature caused the fall of his administration. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due July 1982 produced further documentation when papers found in a suitcase belonging to Gelli’s daughter were found at Fumicino Airport, Rome. [entitled Memorandum sulla situazione italiana- Memorandum on Italian Situation / Piano di rinascita democratic- plan of democratic rebirth…] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due Inquisition also determined a formal program existed funded in the amount of 30 to 40 billion lire to be used to get people and actions moving. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

The following events and incidents are attributable to the Propaganda Due Clandestine Masonic Lodge, its members and programs. The !977 Corriere Sera Takeover or P2’s buyout of the Corriere della Sera newspaper with Vatican Funding to shift its editorial line to the right. A 1980 interview has Gelli describing his career goals of being a puppet master, and the notion of a general Italian Constitutional rewrite in a Gaullist Presidential System structure. Specifically, a French phenomena sympathetic to neither a left or right bias, neither free from contradictions nor momentary concessions of necessity. In theory a Gaullist Presidential system leans Right but committed to Montesquieu’s and Rousseau’s concepts of social contract and positive law, or rights for individuals or groups authorized by government or judiciary. It provides for mixed government, freedom from absolute monarchy, necessity of civic virtue and common good, but borrowing economics and individualism from ‘liberalism.’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

Propaganda Due was found to be involved in the Bologna Massacre, where Gelli and secret service boss Pietro Musumeci were caught trying to mislead police during an investigation where 85 people were killed and over 200 wounded. P2 was also implicated in the Banco Ambrosiano Scandal, the death of its president Roberto Calvi in London, England. An initial coroner’s report of a suicide was later refilled as ‘murder.’ Investigative journalists found bank funds went to P2 or some of its members. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due There was also a Protezione Account Affair whereby documents were found in 1981 detailing a numbered account at Union Bank Switzerland, Lugano, Switzerland. Payment of US$7 million by Florio Fiorini through Roberto Calvi to the then Italian Socialist Party Leader Claudio Martelli, on behalf of Bettino Carxi, a socialist prime minister from 1983 to 1987. The full extent of this event became evident in 1993 during the mani-pulite or ‘Clean Hands’ kickback on a loan organized by socialist leaders to bail out Banco Ambrosiano. P2 has been also linked to the recovery of Argentine’s Juan Peron’s ‘severed hands.’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

Secret and Clandestine Lodges were outlawed by Benito Mussolini in 1925, but a just as quiet toleration always existed. Special new laws were enacted to clarify Italian relationships, but a recent case involving a British Navel Officer being prohibited from joining a Masonic Lodge was questioned by E.U. Court of Human Rights as a possible breach of right of expression and choice. Not all members on Gelli’s list were ever made public as determined by the numbering schema beginning with 1600 on the public documents. And in a strange but true reality, Gelli was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in 1996, supported by Mother Teresa and Naguib Mafouz. In 2003, Gelli told La Repubbica it seemed to him that Sivio Burlusconi was implementing a refreshing and soothing P2 plan for ‘Democratic Rebirth.’ In May of 2009, all charges were dropped or ruled ‘unsustainable’ against Gelli. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

P2 has also been considered as a ‘strategy of tension’ [stragia della tensione], or Cold War Device to divide, manipulate, control public opinion using fear, propaganda, disinformation, psychological warfare, agent provocateurs, and false terrorist activities, to achieve strategic aims. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due In both cases, what is Clandestine can be viewed as secret in the notion that their historical mutations upon society have been hidden by the sideshow of their outing. In these cases, the evidence suggests that the label of Clandestine has been given to the American Masonic Federation and to Propaganda Due because of their unwillingness to conform to agreed upon and known standards of work. It can be said that this need to stand outside of accepted standards, and the lengths taken to protect their actions is testimony to the types and scale of activities that were undertaken. Not solely promoting anarchy, but a need to step out of existing systems and remain hidden while enough opinion, ink or actual change can occur before the ‘show’ is over.


You’re Harassing Me To Be Perfect?  Here’s A Mirror…  And Get Out Of My Ear!


Second DRAFT

The CT DOL expects 27,000 people to have their compromised tax information sent back so they can further study their investigation.  The DOL has asked me for patience for two years.  There is a terrible immigrations problem and crossed identity data issue in all of CT’s databases.  All are updated by hand, none are cross linked.  The DMV seems to create new ways to get around their own rules daily.

My analysis of why the CT DOL made all those name changes was to kick me off unemployment early.  The first in a series of three name changes occurred in mid- December at the warning track.  I had money earmarked to be paid, but the State of CT claimed my benefit year started December 28, 2012,  Their corrected records, when my correct name is entered, show I started filing January 5th, 2013.  So they bumped me out early and changed my name two more times until the correct start date on the benefit year passed, to re-capture the small remainder federally assigned to me.  WHERE IS ALL THE FEDERAL MONEY CLAWED BACK FROM THE LONG TERM UNEMPLOYED?

Here is the letter I sent to the Governor in response to his requests for time.  Don’t get me wrong, I would vote for him again.  But his Information Systems Network are junk, and I think those who want to embarrass the Democrats are taking advantage of it.  Maybe as a ‘income supplement?’  I sincerely hope this State gets its act together soon.  It certainly is not from myself speaking up…

Gov. Malloy,  I think the ‘reflections of sound’ we discussed at your Norwalk Town Hall Meeting are radio and high frequency radio waves being broadcast to harass people.  I can track them and match them on a scanner. 

To the point, I was one of the people who got the bad DOL tax data.  But I have been getting bad data correspondence for two months, and for over a year, DOL technicians have asked me to be patient with them.  Patient for what I have no idea, until now.  I sincerely think you have an Immigrations Issue.  I have identity theft insurance.  I have had this problem since my father passed away in 2011.  I have had issues with the CT Probate Oversight and Judge Forgione.  I think your corruption runs deeper than at first glance.  Please fix these issues.  I have no unemployment, no job, a messed up work history, and now, identity theft again.

By Definition, Is Faith Blind???

first draft

This is how the large net cast by an ambitious prosecutor tangles up everything, EVEN ENDANGERED SPECIES.  I really know very little about this case, but here is my little story.

Unbeknownst to me, there has been a Federal Investigation going on in the State of Connecticut.  This is the Ponzi state, I guess.  And in these days of extra sensitivity,  everything is drawn in.  What I would like to say, is that in an unrelated matter, I chose to use Attorney K for a broken headlight ticket.  My situation felt like a  ‘set up’ over-exaggerated ticket, which should have been attributed to the safety manager or owner of the company…

I was only the vehicle driver.  On the first day in front of the judge, the State’s attorney stomped his foot at my request through attorney K, for dismissal.  He forced the ticket to go to hearing.  He then called over to me, where I was sitting in the gallery.  State’s Attorney shouted, “Show him who’s next.”  As I walked out, this fellow was brought in.  Some months later, I coincidentally found out he was pulled over for a similarly typed traffic violation.  He helped me paint at a Masonic Temple, and he was the house chairman’s previous manager’s husband.

No matter, as we walked out, Attorney K thought we had a great case.  A COUPLE OF WEEKS LATER HE TOLD ME IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT I SHOULD LOSE THIS CASE, AND PLEAD OUT.  He said this was the deal as told to him, and in these cases, you do what you’re told.  I DECLINED this false offer.  I thought I knew what happened, and thought I could communicate this to the court.

He told me he was told that he then would have too much other work, and I should choose one of two other lawyers.

Attorney S told me my Aunt was concerned for my safety.  I had pages of documentation relating to the date, weather conditions, and incorrect ticket codes.  Attorney S still lost my case, even shouting at me in the court room that this case may NEVER COME TO TRIAL.  The Judge reprimanded him, telling him to calm down.  I made my own plea; there was nothing I could do about the headlight.



This ticket has been character assassination against me, and I said this in quiet breath in the court room.

Again, I do not know all the facts in this case.  But two years later, this sentence was handed down.  How many bit parts were involved?  It is just a shame when the EVENTS OF LIFE have to be bent to FORCE a conviction.

It truly is a comment on life when the faith we need to place in situations such as this can be betrayed by other moving parts working to bring down entire communities.  Was I taken advantage of by outsiders, you bet.  Did many others have something to gain?  Apparently.  It takes time and money to coordinate ‘stage-craft’ such as this.  Both Justice, and Faith, can lose their sight.

Guess we should be careful of the virtues we teach.

How does this one end???  Well, now that the larger net has been put away, the people doing the mud-slinging, the net holders, can now be seen.  Any cases that have been held back in exchange for their help SHOULD NOW MOVE FORWARD.

My mom thinks I NEEDED to go through this character building episode.

In another courtroom, the Judge in my Father’s Probate Case summed things up very well.  As I left his courtroom, he quietly patted me on my back and said to me, ‘you know the truth, just let us talk…’

In the words of that unknown CT State Prosecutor, “SHOW THEM WHO’S NEXT!!!”

I’m waiting.

Fuzzy Logic

draft 1

1.        III experiencing ongoing identity theft

2.       II diagnosed but doing the best he can.  Pressure from son C and M, fighting, and debt that C has caused company to carry, forcing II to work instead of rest.

3.       II dies February 10, 2010.  Didn’t want to, but was told he was ‘too sick.’   III only one who DID NOT enter room for last visit.  III wanted to wait to see if he would recover, as he did in past…

4.       III right back to life.  Middle of a snow storm.

5.       Couple of weeks pass.   D, J and Fd begin closed meetings.  Insist III should just trust them.

6.       Paperwork drawn up,  III was called on Cell Phone in the middle of  life, after another snow storm.  The crisis was that III needed to sign paperwork because ‘People won’t get paid if you don’t SIGN.  You have to trust us, why would you go against the family.’ III hangs up.  III wants a second opinion.  III was told there was no time,  J and D leave Fd’s office and return with paperwork.  They called a couple of more times.  Frustrated, III stopped what he was doing, drove to the office at 1059 M and entered.  No one was present, just the paperwork.  Against logic but wanting to do ‘the right thing,’ III signed, sight unseen.  III didn’t even know a lawyer who would look at the agreement anyway, and who would think that the family wouldn’t have his best interest in mind.  Further, it was described as just a stock consolidation, and III thought there would still be will a hearing, so on and so forth.

7.       April or Early May, D calls III into his office.  Makes an agreement to pay III $1,000 NET, $1,365 GROSS, and $$$$ after 40 hours.  III agrees.  They work the entire 2010 season.

8.       During the 2011 snow season III’s truck becomes repeatedly vandalized.  III gets strange phone calls, his computer is repeatedly hacked, and unknown people were parked out in front of his house, often seen taking notes.

9.       They return to work for the 2011  season.  A few weeks go by, and much to everyone’s surprise, III is still gainfully employed.  A worker TJ  remarked to III one morning ‘you still have your insurance?, she said you were supposed to lose your insurance.’  III has no idea what this guy is talking about, but then again, he looked at III one day and remarked ‘you killed me.’  His son      (C R) also crashed his car in front of the shop previous to this, and on TJ’s first day of work when III asked who hired him TJ stated ‘I hope to finish my career here.’  No other response.  This is an example of the prevailing attitude.  “Just ignore III, and logic, he isn’t really important…”

10.  J and D show up on a job on RT 5 in Wallingford and tell III that he needs to go to a CRISIS   CENTER.    In the middle of a working day.  III was very confused and stated that III was at work to work.  They leave the job site.

11.   A few days later, III asked his brother if he had any awareness of his ongoing identity theft.  C said III should stay home and he would just send  III his check.  No one tried to stop this.  III made a decision that C looked ready to physically defend himself [start to fist fight], and III only wanted to know if  C could help solve the identity theft issue.  Not wishing to fight, III turned around, got in his car and left.

12.   As Discussed, III was paid to stay home for five months.  Another contractor did work on J’s driveway, GP.  J thought maybe III would finish the season with him.  III’s brother C refused to allow GP  Sr. use any of ‘his’ paving equipment.  Talks fell through, and III has been sent away to work for other contractors before.  The ‘managers’ never really liked III’s logic or question asking.

13.   Finished the 2011 season.  Did not work all winter.  No calls, no explanations.

14.   2012 season commences. Brought back on the payroll.  Same deal.  Stayed home.  Paperwork filed for cars, etc.  Couple meetings with Attorney TF.  III paid TF’s asked fees.  It was in a meeting in TF’s office where III was surprised by the path taken by Attorney Sk.  Strange words…

15.   Regardless, III signed the paperwork again, under the impression there would be a final meeting.  When II first died, III purchased some CT Probate Law books.  Every night, J and III would go over sections of the book.  Until C’s lawyers took over.

16.   III continued to receive the same check, each week, for $1,365 gross, $1,000 NET each week NO CHANGES.

17.   2012 season ends and III was dropped for seasonal lack of work.  Collected unemployment all  winter, no other work.

18.   2013 season, III was told that III couldn’t be paid the same amount.  There would have to be reductions.  III has a house and a mortgage, and after watching how much everyone is spending, III needs the piece of mind.  Can’t be bounced around from contractor to contractor, and can’t be paid inheritance in working hours.   III decided he would take the pharmacist assistant exam, as discussed with the State DOL.

19.   The Next update:

  1.  Last correspondence I received from North Branford Probate Court DID NOT list Judge F as acting Judge, it showed Town of Branford as Adjudicator.  I realize my compliance with the determination of my mom as executrix is critical to her concept of order, but no oversight has detailed the pressure she has been put under, the inequities displayed the lack of clear and accurate financial reporting, or the failing decisions and council she has been given by attorney Sk.  Attorney Sk is not listed AT ALL as an expense to the estate, and I have witnessed Mr. Sk’s payment after hearings.
  2. No personal bias against Judge.  F, but he was the person placed in charge of oversight, and No Wise Oversight has been displayed to my eye.  In fact, when presented with the discrepancies and failing health of the business, Judge F told me ‘Dunn and Bradstreet is not a reliable source of information.’  Any Judge who would seek to rule this information as ‘ex parte communication’ rather than as a red flag should be classified as ineffective.
  3. I have not been included in probate process, have very little clarity as to inner workings of the trust, and do not have similar opinions as management or estate attorneys.  Ultimately, it appears to me to be a clear case of Nepotism.
  4. The basic trust outlines myself and my brother only to be directly provided for through the trust.   Because my brother was chosen by my mom as the operating officer of daily activities, and it is not in his best interest to reduce his compensation or directing ability, the terms have not nearly come close to being followed.  I asked my brother if he was aware of my ongoing identity theft three years ago, and he refused to answer and told me to stay home.  I discussed pharmacy technician training, which I paid for previous to this discussion, with estate attorney  Sk, and he told me the estate didn’t have the money.  My mom wrote me a check this past August to cover expenses, including to rebuild a hacked computer, after I passed the test.  But the trust is clear that I don’t need to beg or claim inequality.  The estate should flow through her as executrix to cover equal disbursements to myself and my brother, UNLESS SHE SPECIFICALLY GIVES CAUSE OR REASON.  I have not heard any such need.
  5. The business is being engineered to appear failing, so that any future requests that I might make will be non-payable because of financial crisis.  Unfortunately for the business management staff, the application of this concept to business creditors has landed the business in court; according to my mom.  Judge F stated to me the extra profits from the business should fund the trust, but being in the type of industry that it is in creates the situation of perpetual non-profitability.  If this is the case, then the estate will never pay a cent because I do not directly work for the business in any capacity.  This was the lawyers’ construction.
  6. My mom feels shut out from her grandchildren  [my brother and sister-in-law] and therefore obligated to appease whenever possible to earn visitation rights.  My sister-in-law has hacked my Gmail account attached to my cell phone [2012], I bought the hardware, company provided data plan [email attached to and set up with new number generation attached to hardware device].  She reassigned my number to a different employee, no notice no chance to stop it.  This created emotional duress when I found out and I was forced to react quickly, cancelling everything, while on my way to a funeral.  My mom found out over a year later HER personal cell phone was hacked by Megan as well, through my brother’s telling.  My brother and sister-in-law hacked each other’s phones, GPS, call lists, text contents, contact lists, etc.   The family attorney L, W and Sk have provided no direction, neither Judge F.  Their Facebook page recently displayed harassing statements, including my sister-in-law threatening to sue my Mom [as told to her by my Uncle Dante, the corporation’s secretary].  Incidents always occur timed with my life events;  the week I wrote Judge F citing his oversights, my brother and sister went to lawyers to get divorce paperwork.  Three weeks ago I was told about the Facebook Commentary, after I was discharged from the first job I obtained since my father’s passing.  I have that DOL hearing this coming Monday, October 28, 2013.  The DOL is claiming it was my ‘performance.’  Maybe Great Performance, or great acting by the dismissing employer, but that’s another discussion…
  7. I have received no reassurance of anyone’s custodial or fiduciary duties toward me.  Two payroll economic stimulus packages ago, I was denied receipt of the extra 2% employee rebate.  My father was still alive, and he rectified the situation after a couple of months.  This past 2011 2% rebate program, I received no increase Net or Gross earnings.  I told my mother, and my uncle.  My uncle told me ‘just kidding, but this happened to you because you voted for Barak Obama.’
  8. The company, as told to me, is going through tough times.  I have not  been represented in this case.  I have had great difficulty in getting representation AT ALL throughout this process.  The one lawyer I retained, was unable to clarify to me why I needed to sign the agreement initially granting my mom consolidation, when there was supposedly a clear transition outlined in Attorney  St’s documentation.  The second question was why I needed to sign over ownership of my father’s personal vehicles when they should have been correctly placed into the St Trust Container.  This past August 2013 I was told to buy my car that I paid for, from my mom for $1.  Her boyfriend prepared the paperwork.  It would be my duty to re-register the vehicle because she wanted to eliminate the “MAISANO BROS or MAISANO BROS” from the State DMV Database.  How this construction was created or why it persisted was never explained to me, but I hope this is NOT a dissolution of inheritance not discussed BUT PROVIDED TO ME IN SOME UNDISCLOSED DOCUMENT. 
  9. THE ONLY ITEM GIVEN DIRECTLY TO ME BY MY FATHER IS A MOBIL GAS CARD, PAID FOR THROUGH MAISANO BROS INC.  I use approximately $50 per week in gas.  In late July early August  this card was ‘Temporarily Cancelled’ without my notice.  In fact, I was aware of the card’s expiration date months earlier, and asked my mom if it would be renewed.  She answered affirmatively  YES.  ON MY BIRTHDAY NIGHT, APRIL 13TH 2013, she told me the other direct passage item, a Home Depot Card that my father gave to me so that I could always perform repairs to my house, was reported ‘Stolen’ to the Home Depot Credit Company.  When I called to clarify the situation, Home Depot Credit told me it was reported Stolen, though it may have been lost.  I was holding the card in my hand.  It always is a situation of prepare the people against me to act strong and take bold steps to control me or force me to lose something.  When they are confronted, the opposition switches to a meeker disposition, offering to ‘help me out.’
  10.   I shouldn’t have to lose my house.  In fact, many of the deeds at the town halls,  once showed Anthony Maisano only or Anthony Maisano and  Joan Maisano second.  This included the property where my Brother and Sister-in-Law reside.  Ownership transfer aside, the sources of confusion, and the complexity of how to deal with my personal share of inheritance have been made clear to me.  There is no inheritance for me.
  11.   My brother used Attorney L in cases when my father was alive.  Soon after my father’s death, my brother Chris told Attorney St  ‘his guy would take over.  I was surprised to see Attorney Sk work as the work filed to the State.  This makes it appear as if I was sued and never told.  My mom and the estate utilizes Attorney Sk exclusively now, after I pointed out my thoughts on conflict of interest.  But Attorney Sk is Attorney L partner.  St and Bd deny new work creation since the documents were created WHEN MY FATHER WAS ALIVE, then filed after I was told I needed to sign the consolidation agreement in 2010.  I do feel that I have no recourse, and witnessing the dissolution of organization each time a generation dies, I have little hope for future enforcement base upon THE ETHICAL REMEMBRANCE OF THE PAST.  I am aware of my mother’s place, but the free for all has been proven by landing in current bankruptcy court, and cancellation of the Asphalt Plant account with balance due.  Other  accounts are also un-payable, and it’s based on the lack of oversight of Judge F to attest to the correct containerization and ongoing business consideration and estate health.

Post conversation thoughts:

CT mentioned to me that the reason for Judge F asking to be removed from the case was one of his, Judge F’s, Clients, asked for his help in getting paid from Maisano Brothers Paving.  He felt it was a conflict of interest, and heretofore was removed.

All the gifts were unwrapped, and the wonderment of the season filled the room.  I put aside all my new presents except one.  For the past few years Santa brought me sets of wooden tinker toys.  This was my favorite wish because infinite thought could be unleashed anywhere a quiet place allowed.  I looked out the window to view the pristine fresh snow which created the fresh canvas of winter landscape.  How would I combine this new set with my others…

After thinking for a few moments, I chose to build upon two other constructs made during earlier days.  The two box like wooden rectangles were made by connecting the straight holed aligning pillars.  Figure, Strength and Beauty… ordered to interlock my earlier works.  I would have to utilize the angled offset holes in the round hubs.  Spokes emanating from center hubs would link two horizontal boxes on the same level.

An Arch would create a span using two hubs, a straight line and radiating pillars dropping into lower points.  Two rectangles linked.  Before I could continue, I needed to open more of my tinker toy kits.  Due proportion would create just correspondence in all parts.  I want to expand the dwelling’s footprint, perhaps in the shape of a triangle.  Limited by my piece count, wisdom should guide me through the arrangement of ordinary materialsFigure, Strength and Beauty is the Operative I focused upon.  I need to expand the roof too!

The call for Christmas Worship brought me out of my thoughts.  Barely enough time to get dressed.  After the Day’s Celebration, Holiday food would follow.  Spending time with family and friends would take precedence over my construction.

Worship talked about Faith, Hope and Charity… The lecture described Jacob’s Vision.  I envisioned finishing my construction, and I hoped there would be time left to finish.  I held my thoughts, secretly waiting and keeping calm.  It was the DIETY’S Day, and I needed to practice charity and squared actions.

All the family gathered at our house.  We gave thanks for the day and began eating the prepared feast.  The clock struck high noon.  All the food almost distracted me from the hour’s chime’s clarity.  Someone gave the blessing.  People came and left, all by their own schedules.

The plates were cleaned up, and extra food put in boxes and bags for visiting guests.  Outside there was still snow on lawn, but its reflection changed.  The reflection of the Star Decked Canopy beamed down a silver blue hue.  The Frozen Mosaic Pavement mirrored the Blazing Stars reflection.  The moon and stars cast no light of their own, only a re-illumination of the sun.  I recalled my mind’s trestle for my next step.  Expand the roof.

I had to add a new center hub to the original span.  That’s the good thing about Speculative Work.  Plans are better able to be reshaped during the flow.  A center perpendicular extended off of my first connections.  Using my bended knuckles as an invisible gavel, I made my appropriate connections. Reaching my last hub, I pulled two additional returns linking back to my initial opposing corners.  I dropped down extensions to give the roof dimension, and my triangular space started showing final figure and shape.

I called myself out from my work for the final time to view what appeared before me.  I could create embellishments on the interior space, but that would take more expansion sets.  Perhaps I could use some of my Christmas gift cards.  Reaching the Pinnacle of my ability and resources, the time came for rest.  Just like on the Seventh Day, it was time to pause and enjoy my work.

I would seek to use the movable parts on another day.

I slept in rather late.  The birds and morning sun had already begun their daily scripture.  While preparing breakfast, I recalled a drive I once took.  Not the farthest distance, but a relevant destination nonetheless…

This particular trip was a destination to prepare for, calling upon focus and dexterity.  Remarkably though, there were only three potential stopping points along the way.  I made a quick map in my mind — a plan to travel through what I remembered to be three traffic lights.  I would come upon the first illuminated crossroad when leaving my town.  Down the road, my path would wend through a checkpoint bisecting the journey.  The final caution would appear just before my final location.  I departed just after the birds stopped their early song.

Warmed by the heating sun, I started down the road.  I took no personal effects on this drive, just my thoughts.  A few twists and turns in the road, then some trees and friendly waves.  First traffic light.  Its yellow-amber color indicated CAUTION.  I realized this was not to be a local errand or quick skip to a friend’s house.  Fast look in all directions and I received my mind’s confirmation.  Familiar surroundings disappear as I leave my hometown behind.  I continue through the intersection, careful to advance through less familiar territory.

The inertial motion paces a bit faster.  This is the longest section of the journey.  Fences click by and the perimeter of my view becomes more bare.  I feel as though my periphery of sight has greatly increased.  Sides, front, and back.  Distances appear elongated. .  I see the next light.  It is colored green — only one choice.  Automatic impulse drives me on.  Passing through the intersection, the distance traveled does appear farther than I can recall.  Caution turns into confidence as the signs guide me onward.  My internal compass remains unchanged.

The rolling wheels coo quietly over the new pavement.  I sit silently casting my thought ahead, internally marching down my mind’s map.  My heart feels confident with the fact check.    Around the next turn a red traffic light slides into my view.  THREE gauges, like PRECIOUS JEWELS.  My body reacts, bringing my travel to a temporary halt.  Down this lonely stretch of road, few travelers track.  I arrive at my mind’s connection.  No external sounds heard {ears} outside my enclosure.  My eyes silently confirm {tongue} my thoughts.  The light changes to green, and I faithfully proceed {heart}.  My virtual map shortens.

I start slowly.  I am about to reach the end of my mind’s map.  A short distance later, I focus upon my goal.  God’s essence, true thought and a cautionary approach powered this journey.  I cannot remember all the data collected along the way, but I know it sits comfortably in my mind’s store.  This bundle forms a package of TRUTH.  An actual plan for not only my return home, but the bridge built for future journeys.  Truth is the divine language which all time travelers use to navigate.  It is the steady beacon which must be followed to correctly unwrap learning and action.  The destination has been illuminated by the lantern of passage.

Caution {yellow}, [new name, unsure of what’s ahead] —– 3 precious jewels…{red} listening [Ear], silent [tongue] faithful [heart] —  Truth {green}, [checkword]

Reflections on Entered Apprentice Degree…p. 47 Duncan’s Ritual

Anthony Maisano 3



The pebbled sand feels warm underfoot.  Tracing the curvature of ocean’s inlet, wending around man made dwellings.  Sitting under black sky, stars are hidden by thick clouds.  Mist and gunpowder fill the air.  The wayfaring sea pushes and pulls like moist lava.  The sea foam alternates between covering and exposing the sand bed.  The guiding moon begins to slide out of its cloudy cover.

Care must be taken because the ocean has its own pace.  The flowing grasp is smoothly subtle, but ever withdrawing and advancing.  No one hears this framed description, yet its presence is obvious.  Thoughts protected and insulated, yet exposed to the inner light.  The irregular waterline twists in a predictable and orderly pattern.  The moon begins to illuminate the field.  Light greens, blue and white become discernible.  A few stars, yet all is quiet.  Thoughts continue to expand and illuminate.  The heart beats steadily.

The water will eventually reach the place which is previously marked.  The tide’s volume is increased, in richness but not in tone.  Velvet sounds expand only because of proximity.  Time has expired for the place chosen.  The moonlight’s embrace overtakes the dark mist and in this set of visuals, all can be seen.  Thoughts and actions are silent.  An illuminated canopy stares down over the inlet.  The beam’s glow casts truth and justice.  Nothing can be hidden for very long.

The ebb and flow has overtaken point of reference.  That familiar mark has been reached.  Moments until departure.  No one hears and fewer see the steady movement.  The ocean’s tide and night cycle are part of final justice.  These can’t be stopped. Rhythmic thoughts, like the sand bed and the moon and stars, are protected by the guardian’s sword.  All recorded somewhere in the book of time.

The cycle begins again.

Reflections on master mason degree



Darkness surrounds the four walls inside of a larger scale.  Gentlemen find their way from the constraints of daily duties to meet in the vaulted roof within a hewn stone building.  Through the iron hinged door, the eternal great lights delineate the stage.   Signs and tokens, take your seats.  This is a night of learning.

Center altar encircled by three great chairs.  Curling and twisting about this consecrated area, the great stairs.  Steps of learning, set points for the craftsman’s tools to do their work upon.  These are the classical points of learning, fields of clay to be molded into greatest thoughts.  Winding around the center altar, pedastling The Holy Bible.

This is the fellows gathering.  A reminder to the old and new student the ability of sand to harden into focus.  The ashlars of human minds, capable of structuring one’s own memory lodge to be built upon the masters’ studies.  Names often recorded, rarely remembered.  Schools of study that provide the tested geometric vessel to contain all
free thought.

Soon the lectures are finished, and the bellies are full.  Fellows return to the calling of daily activity.  Cerebral boxes, pyramidal Tetrahedrons, sharpened and expanded.  Capable of holding fluid quicksilver…brilliant thoughts.  Each built from the great stairs of study.  The floating stairs occupying the space between the altar and platforms.  The illustration of where to put the grains of thought we encounter on the way home.  The next day.  Expanding into the time until the next session.  The geometrical hanging closet illustrated by the floating stairs.
