""A provocative book detailing who among our Founding Fathers participated in such clandestine activities as piracy, drug running, smuggling, slave trading, and multinationalism, and those in our nation's highest office who have also practiced and benefited from these same illegal activities right up to the 21st century. . . . An intriguing view of some of the planet's puppeteers."" --Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D., author of America's Secret Destiny Secret Societies of America's Elite exposes the dark and critical role secret societies play within the ruling families in America and their tremendous influence on American democracy, current events, and world history. Secret societies have always been a major force in the history of Western civilization. The alliances formed in the Knights Templar, the Knights of Christ, and the Freemasons transcended patriotism and religious beliefs and had a powerful influence on the establishment of the United States of America. Masonic cells are credited with smuggling in the democratic ideals inspiring the American Revolution. Yet while these secret associations of merchants, smugglers, occultists, gamblers, spies, and slavers succeeded in freeing the United States from foreign domination, the dark side is that the elite used their connections to further their own wealth and power. These secret cells did not hesitate to sponsor the assassination of a president and even attempted to break up the union on several occasions when it was deemed expedient. From the Sons of Liberty and the Essex Junto to the Ku Klux Klan, secret societies have played critical roles in building the fortunes of America's most powerful families. Now Steven Sora reveals in alarming detail how these societies continue to wield power even today as organizations such as Yale's Skull & Bones unite America's modern ruling families as strongly as Masonic Lodges once connected the Astors, Livingstons, and Roosevelts. Their immense power and wealth allow this elite to control America to an even greater degree than the Templars once dominated Europe. STEVEN SORA has been researching historical enigmas since 1982 and is the author of The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar.
