English Revolution

English Revolution

In England, Calvinism lead to Oliver Cromwell’s overthrow of the House of Stuart in 1648 and its replacement with the House of Orange-Nassau in 1688. (After Cromwell’s death, the House of Stuart was restored to the throne in 1660 only to be deposed again in 1688.)

After Cromwell executed King Charles I in 1649, he and his “Rump Parliament” assumed absolute power. Then in 1655, he opened England to the Jews. Thus, he repaid the Jews for financing his rebellion; Moses Carvajal was his primary financial backer. (The Jews had financed Cromwell primarily through the Bank of Amsterdam.) Carvajal was also an important source of intelligence for Cromwell. Cromwell, who may have been a Socinian, also allowed the Freemasonry to organize formally in England.

In spite of not being a Freemason, Cromwell is accredited with much of the development of Freemasonry in England. (Cromwell also organized a powerful Freemasonry movement in Italy, whose members were mostly Protestants or Jews.[1]) He gave the members the title of Freemasons. The allegory of the Temple of Solomon, which symbolizes the original condition of man in a state of equality with a Deistic religion, was his creation. Freemasons would rebuild it after the annihilation of Christ and his Church.[2] In this respect, the goals of Freemasonry and Jewry were, and still are, identical.

A political faction that aided Cromwell was the Levellers although he did not seem to share many of their political ideals. They had a political program and a religious program. John Lilburne was one of their political leaders. Politically, the Levellers were advocates of popular sovereignty and wanted the franchise extended. They wanted to change the structure of Parliament and to separate the legislative authority from the executive authority.

In the religious realm, Gerard Winstanley and Everard were the principal leaders. The Levellers believed that the dawn of the Messianic era had arrived. They were early Zionists and strong supporters of Jews—some, such as Everard, even claimed that they were Jews. They claimed to be Christians. However, their Christianity was like that of the Bavarian Illuminati and of the Christian Socialists: Jesus was the author of their egalitarian communistic philosophy.

Upon the death of Oliver Cromwell in 1688, his son, Richard Cromwell became Lord Protector. Two years later Charles II (a Freemason), son of Charles I, became king. James II (a Freemason) followed his father, Charles II, as king. With the aid of many English noblemen and Jewish financiers, William of Orange forced James to abdicate in 1688. William, who had married James’ daughter, Mary, then became king—William III.

The English Revolution occurred with the abdication of James and the crowning of William and the policies that he instituted. The English Revolution has been called the Glorious Revolution and the Bloodless Revolution. Among the important acts of William III as king were the enactment of the Declaration of Rights (1689)and the chartering the Bank of England (1694). The Declaration of Rights ended the king’s power to suspend Parliament or to dispense with its laws. Chartering the Bank of England granted the sole power to issue notes that circulated as money to a central institution. The charter also prohibited private goldsmiths from issuing receipts and required them to store their gold in the vaults of the Bank of England. Thus, the Bank of England became a monopoly to issue money. With its charter began the policy of a permanent national debt.

Loans that Jewish bankers made to the British government brought the Bank of England into being. Although most of the Bank of England’s initial shareholders were English noblemen, by 1721 Jewish financiers and bankers had acquired a significant number of shares and since 1751 shares seldom traded. (In 1946, the Bank of England was nationalized.)
