The Silent Enemy: an Insurrection

Updated: Jun 24

Silent Enemy

In his open letter of June 7th, the past Vatican ambassador to the US, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, writes, “In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media.”

He continues, “In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness. These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.”

Today, we have the entire Capitol Hill area of Seattle held hostage, buildings boarded, businesses closed, and the area flooded with protestors and graffiti. Antifa seems to operate with impunity, wherever they choose to strike. Black Lives Matters protests as a rule turn violent, with many people bused-in to participate and some paid as agitators. People have been physically attacked and some have been killed. The news media presents events as peaceful, when we can all see with our own eyes differently. People are taking a knee to the National Anthem and burning the Flag, which to many shows disrespect for those who have given their lives for our country. Historical statues are being deemed racist and torn down, essentially visually wiping out history in front of our eyes. Politicians are siding with protestors and allowing large groups to congregate, yet they refuse to allow children to access playgrounds, people to visit loved ones dying or attend funerals, except that of George Floyd. Some of the loudest voices want police forces defunded and officers are openly being confronted and attacked. The DOJ has dropped the case against General Michael Flynn, yet Judge Sullivan continues somehow against even a recent ruling by the Supreme Court. Google just demonetized conservative publications like the Federalist and Zero Hedge. Twitter does the same. Aunt Jemima syrup is being removed by its manufacturer from the market because Quaker Oats says it’s based on a racial stereotype. Who is not asking “what the hell is going on and why?” Sadly, a lot of people rarely question the reality around them.

The destruction of peoples’ livelihoods, the burning of businesses and personal property, the personal and physical attacks on those with opposing views, the negativity and violence towards police, and all forms of violence are not actions of those grounded in a set of moral and ethical boundaries backed by societal norms and laws. It’s quite the contrary, as the Archbishop says. It’s pure darkness and evil on display. Yet, it is not a single person, organization or force invading our Nation. Rather we are dealing with a wide-scale insurrection supported by many entities, each trying to take their cut, having different objectives, but seemingly a similar ideology. Until people understand this and stop bowing to the financiers and perpetrators of this insurrection and question the “Whys” and say “No” to the “Hows” it will continue unabated.

The reality is that we do know that such evil has existed, since the beginning of time. Evil exists because to some these forms of evil are acceptable within and in support of their ideology. Behaviors such as pedophilia, incest, lying, stealing, sex trafficking, abusing another person, the destruction of another person’s property, and even murder are acceptable to some because they receive something in return. This might be hard for some to believe because to most people on Earth these evil behaviors are unacceptable. Most people are trying to survive day to day, oblivious of what really is transpiring in the world and who is controlling its trajectory. Can you blame them for not knowing? Frankly, for some, yes.

Oddly, why is it that seemingly rational and intelligent people believe it’s acceptable for politicians to lie? I had a friend say to me years ago essentially that the end justifies the means. But, why so, if the means is based on a lie? Why does it seem today that some people in business, government, the news media, science, and other systems of society are short on ethics, lie with impunity, yet few in the power circles seem to get in trouble? Why is it that human and sex trafficking collectively are the number two most profitable of criminal enterprises, behind drugs, and why is it that the largest purveyors of sex are men in the US? If all of this is perverted to the majority, why does it still exist?

An explanation for some of the evil in society today may lie in a cult initiated and formed in Eastern Europe by Sabbatai Sevi (1626–76), known as the “False Messiah,” and a century later followed by Jacob Frank (1726–91), the father of Frankism. Sevi came along during the Khmelnytsky Uprising of 1648-1654, when ethnic cleansing of Jews was rampant. He lived in modern-day Turkey, proclaimed himself as the new Messiah in 1666, and gained a huge following in Asia Minor and Eastern Europe. At the peak of his fame and popularity, Sevi had a following of over one million believers--half the world’s Jewish population during the 17th century. Yes, half! Because of his power and influence, Sevi asked the Turkish Sultan to hand him the land of Jerusalem for his people. The ruler of the Ottoman Empire instead confronted Sevi with the alternative of choosing either to be executed or convert to Islam. When Sevi chose to convert and to not die as a Sabbatian martyr, he consequently lost his influence and respect among his followers and died in obscurity.

About one hundred years later, Jacob Frank (born Jakub Lejbowicz) revived the Sabbatian cult with the claim that he was the “true” new Messiah. In the Eastern European world at the time, people longed for deliverance and a leader, hence his message aroused an enthusiastic following. Frank could make his followers believe that he was not just another kind of Sevi but the true messenger of redemption. He would say that Sevi was too weak to find the true way. He, in contrast, would be their savior. Frank shaped the ideology or "way of a Frankist" which in its basic form is to be deceitful and spread confusion in the quest for such redemption. A key characteristic of a Frankist follower is that they must carry the “burden of silence” and remain clandestine. To them, “holy knowledge” and enlightenment can only come when the “burden of silence” gets carried to its fullest.

Frankism eventually became even more of a mass movement than that of the one million or so Sabbateans, fed by the burning desire of Frank's followers to construct a “new world order.” Like his predecessor Sevi, Jacob Frank preached purification through transgression--an act that goes against a law, rule, or code of conduct. Essentially few laws existed in Frankism. Frank preached the desecration of what is considered to be holy, such as the Talmud or the Bible, and promoted sexual excesses amongst his followers, with orgies often part of their gatherings.

Coming out of the Jewish tradition, the Frankists challenged the Judaic Talmud and the rule of the Rabbis. The Rabbis had no choice but to proclaim a universal Cherem or excommunication against all Frankist "impenitent heretics," and made it obligatory upon every pious Jew to seek-out the Frankists and expose them. Seeking cover, Frank told Mikołaj Dembowski, the Catholic Bishop of Kamieniec Podolski, Poland, that he rejected the Talmud and recognized only the sacred book of Kabbalah, the Zohar, which did not contradict the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. Frank and his Polish followers were offered protection by the Bishop, if they agreed to convert to Catholicism. They did but this was of course another Frankist deception.

After 1758, following Jacob Frank's conversion, many of his followers in Central and Eastern Europe convertedto Catholicism, and some eventually became leaders in the Church, but clandestinely they never gave up their Frankist ideology. Such an insurrection was true in Western Europe, where the Sabbatians wore the cloak of Judaism. We might want to question whether about 300 years later that Sevi’s dream of ruling Jerusalem actually did come true. In parts of the Middle East, the Sabbatians pretended to be Muslim. According to the great rabbinical scholar, Golem Scholem, “Frankism shattered the world of traditional Judaism beyond repair.” One must also ask what damage might have been done to Catholicism and Islam by the Frankists who infiltrated to high levels within each.

The Frankism tradition has been carried on not by individuals but through bloodline families to this present day, according to Scholem. (Scholem, part VIII). This is a hugely important point to grasp. The bloodline families that Scholem cites, many of them rooted in Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, had largely a very wealthy background and high rabbinical learnings, hence they could cloak their true beliefs. It's believed even by numerous researchers that a union of Jacob Frank and Adam Weishaupt, with Rothschild family financing, birthed the “Order of the Illuminati” that many believe is at the center of modern-day secret societies, the “new world order” proponents, and are the elite “managers of society.” I don’t believe it’s as simple as that, but likely some truth in the hypothesis.

According to Scholem, the Frankist movement remains very secretive and elitist. This select group, he says, enjoys an “extra spirit” that allows the believer to no longer be subject to the standards and obligations of his time and to be free from the demands of the laws and conventions of the society in which they live—Frankists essentially make up their own rules and disavow the established rules of society. What a Frankist believes is acceptable behavior is not what most in society believe, but it is their reality. The same could be true for Satanists, Luciferians, Wiccans, or any of the off-Abrahamic or non-Eastern religions. It is what they believe, but not what is taught by the Abrahamic religions. If one thinks the Frankism ideology cannot possibly exist to this day, just remember that Christianity and Judaism have existed for far longer.

Did the founder of this Frankist movement, Jacob Frank, foster an ideology that has existed for centuries after him, perpetuated by elite bloodline families and followers? Scholem, as well as others who have researched this topic, certainly believe this to be so. We do know that through time that the predominant belief system in control always prevails and guides the determination of right and wrong. The Spanish and their Catholic religion, for example, led to many violent conquests and conversions of the people of Central and South America to Catholicism. If Frank’s followers numbered several million in the 1700’s, what do they number today? Even if far less, if they are the elite and have significant wealth, as Scholem tells us, could they be in positions of authority to exert significant influence over the trajectory of a society? Certainly, it’s plausible.

All of what is showing itself on our streets, in social media, the news media, and the halls of Congress didn’t happen overnight and it’s clearly not organic. It’s organized and orchestrated. As said above, I truly believe we are dealing with a wide-scale insurrection supported by many entities, each trying to take their cut, having different objectives, but seemingly a similar ideology. So, who are these people? Could some be the descendants of the followers of Jacob Frank and today’s modern-day Frankists? Is society just now seeing the intentions of the Frankist’s quest for a “new world order?” Have we fallen victim to the Frankist’s expertise in deceit, remaining clandestine, spreading confusion, and carrying on with the “burden of silence?” Are they the “silent enemy” to whom President Trump refers? Whether some Frankists are behind the evil in society or not, none of this can be happening unless those in control allow it to happen and find it acceptable and in line with their ideology. That’s a fact. I pray that Americans collectively recognize the truths before it is too late.
