Umar Johnson vs Tariq Nasheed-Manufactured feud?

Umar1..

Dr. Umar Johnson, was born on August 21st, 1974 in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was the eldest child of 11 children, and after attending elementary school, he enrolled in a para-military high school before going to summer school in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. There he performed mandatory JROTC (Juniors Reserves Officer’s Training Corps) duties.

After Fort Bragg, he went to Millersville University, in Pennsylvania, where he attained three degrees. One, a B.S. in political science, another in psychology, and a master’s degree in School Psychology. After this, he received an “Educational Leadership” master’s degree and “Principal’s Certificate” from Lehigh University, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Additionally, he received a PhD from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic medicine, in psychology. For a total of 6 degrees in all.
Tariq Nasheed was born on July 1st, 1974 in Detroit, Michigan. And in his early teens, he and his family moved from Detroit to Birmingham, Alabama. Needless to say, the social life a young Tariq saw in his new environs paled in comparison to the bustle he’d grown accustomed to in “Motown”.
Thus, at 17, Tariq cobbled together $125 for a bus ticket to Los Angeles. And it was there he cultivated the pimp personae that helped him curate what he called, “gaming techniques”. He came up with a technology called “G.I.C.2”, which according to him, stands for “game, intelligence, and common sense, squared”. Unfortunately, employing some of these methods resulted in him having to serve some time in prison.
After being released, Tariq continued plying his trade as a “macking mentor”, to the point where he was able to parlay his enormous street cred into an acting role on the “Bravo” cable TV network. There, he portrayed an actual pimp for the filmmaker Michael Moore, on his show called, “The Awful Truth”, which aired from 1999 until the year 2000. After appearing on the show, Tariq put his lessons of “serial flesh management” into a book he wrote in 2000 titled, “The Art of Mackin’” (TAOM), which became a New York Times bestseller.
Seeing that he struck a societal nerve with TOAM, Tariq followed up this book with one called, “Play or Be Played” in 2004. This tome catered to women wanting to know how to find Mr. Right without being a sex toy to hundreds of men in the process. Then, he followed this book up with “The Mack Within: The Holy Book of Game” in 2005. Tariq was becoming somewhat of a guru in what mainstream culture was calling the “seduction” industry, as he followed up the aforementioned book with the title, “The Elite Way: 10 Rules Men Must know in Order to Deal with Women” in 2009.

Thomas Jerome Harris, a.k.a. Tommy Sotomayor, was born on December 11th, 1975 in Atlanta, Georgia. Joanne Malone, Tom’s mother, had already separated from his father when she moved a pre-teen Tom to Phoenix, Arizona.

Now, Tom purports to being raised in a household where he lived under the tyrannies of Joanne’s abuses. He says this is the reason he’d later go on to be in an unsuccessful relationship with the mother of his own child. And when he fell behind on his child support payments for this child, he was thrown in jail.

After leaving jail and graduating college, is when Tom began his radio diatribes that scrutinized Black women, and the Black community in general, for being morally bereft. And shortly thereafter, is when Tommy moved his radio broadcasts to “YouTube”. After 2010, the following he garnered from his videotaped radio shows, had turned him into a bona-fide (half) celebrity. Much to the chagrin of Black folks.

Now, let’s talk about the term “Hegelian Dialect” which was named after the 19thcentury philosopher G.W.F. Hegel. And “Hegel’s Dialectics”, like other “dialectical” strategies, refers to the method of arriving at the truth by employing a contradictory process between opposing sides. Meaning, Hegel believed the best way for people to find out the truth, was by splitting a questionable theory into two diametrically opposed sides, looking at the discussion in between, and hoping that’s where folks could find out fact from fiction.

Tariq..

And in more layman’s terms, philosophers have come to call this the “problem, reaction, solution” method of elitist control. Meaning, the elites create a problem for the proletariat (us), wait for the target demographic to react, and then, they offer them a solution that furthers the (white) fascist agenda.

Case in point, as of late, Tariq Nasheed and Dr. Umar Johnson have developed a “beef” over differing points of view.

Now, Tariq says Umar’s been “bad-mouthing” him for the better part of two years, and has done so mainly by stating that it was his appearances in Tariq’s “Hidden Colors” documentaries, that made them popular. Conversely, Umar says Tariq’s fakin’ the Black Nationalist funk with his Hidden Colors docs, cause he’s employed an all white film crew to make them. Umar also says his history as a “playa” and “mack”, speaks to his being wholly duplicitous when it comes to Black liberation struggles.

Also, adding to the melanated melee, is (Uncle) Tom Sotomayor. Tom says he knew these “Pro-Black” brothas would show their “true colors” at some point, and in an effort to document this beef, Uncle Tom held a live show on one of his several YouTube channels, discussing the finer points of the Umar vs. Tariq battle. And for over four and a half hours, he smiled while people called and commented on these two pillars of the Black “conscious” community goin’ head-to-head.

And on a side note, I have to say that there’s a particular Blog I’ve frequented for the better part of the past two years, being curated by a brotha who’s got boatloads of knowledge on the Black Spiritual Sciences and ancient Black civilizations. Now, his latest post basically talks about brothas in the “Black conscious” community calling themselves “gods”, while (according to him) the white jewish businessman has proven himself to be something more powerful than a god—and that something is an almighty “merchant”.

And, according to this brotha, not only is the white jew a master merchant, but he also owns capital and the means of production that is able to consume the Black “god”. Thus, rendering Black conscious “deities” ineffectual at best, and neutered at worst. And this ain’t the first time this brotha has alluded to the fact that white jews maintain a dominate position over us, cause they’re using the spiritual sciences that we’ve more or less given up.

Now, let me say this: even if jews didn’t practice our spiritual sciences, they’d still be in positions of power over us, at least financially, and the reason why is…

WHITE JEWS GOT HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN REPARATIONS!

According to a New York Times article, white jews were given a total of 90 “billion” dollars in reparations over the last decade—and that’s just from Germany. 

So here’s what I’d ask this brotha if I ever met him: how the hell can you compare Black people to white jews, when we’ve never seem dime one of reparations?

Now, to the Black men and women reading this—let me ask y’all a question: If Black people in america, or anywhere else, were to receive 90 billion dollars worth of reparations, don’t you think we’d be in a much better place financially?

YA’ DAMN RIGHT WE WOULD! 

So for the life of me, I don’t see how any sane Black person could compare us to them. But let me take that back—cause truthfully, I know exactly why this brotha’s comparing us to them. 

And it has to do with what Dr. Umar Johnson, Tariq Nasheed, and this bloggin’ brotha have in common—and that’s this: 

All three of these brothas are white fascist freemasons.
Mason2...
Umar2...

Now, if you’ve read this blog over the course of the last several months, you’re probably thinking, bruh—you say that about everybody. You might also be thinkin’, the better question is: are there any celebrities out there that aren’t freemasons? 

                                               No.

At least not at “national” or “international” celebrity levels.

Remember, the construct of celebrity was created as a means of population control to influence the masses—that’s it. And whatever’s created by these artists, is just the medium to carry out fascist messages. 

But let’s get back to talkin’ about “Hegel’s Dialectic”, or what we’ve come to know as the Hegelian Dialect (HD), as it pertains to the Umar, Tariq, and Tommy beef

Now, the old guard of Black freemasons that were in charge of keeping our people in line, namely, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, don’t have many years left to live. So their white handlers realized they’ll need replacements. And that’s the role Umar and Tariq are filling. So here’s how Umar, Tariq and Tommy fit in the infrastructure of HD’s insidious technology, using the “,problem,reaction,solution” model.

Step#1: Problem

white fascists push for an assortment of laws and initiatives designed to keep Black/indigenous americans, living under the tyrannies of their agenda(s). More specifically, Black americans are being indiscriminately killed by law enforcement, while every faction of america’s media and educational system is geared towards making us hate ourselves more than any other kind of person, cause we have the most genetic power to breed whites out of existence. And to top this off, our access to every resource we need to collectively unite is continuously blocked and/or under-minded.

Step#2: Reaction 

Revolts in Black communities like the ones we saw in Los Angeles, CA.(1992) and Ferguson, MO. (2014), combined with a new “conscious” Black community, dedicate themselves to organizing against white fascist forces. Especially when it comes to exposing the abuses perpetrated on our people via law enforcement, the american educational system, and the media.

Step#3: Solution
white fascists approach Tariq and Umar with offers to make them rich freemasons—and they accept. These same white fascists insert them into the Black conscious community, and promote them as “leaders” of these groups (Sa Neter). Conversely, these same white fascists set (Uncle) Tommy up as the opposition to both Tariq and Umar. So essentially, they’re controlling the radical (Black conscious community) and conservative elements (“Uncle” Tom Sotomayor) of this oppressive equation. Moreover, like I’ve said in previous posts, white fascists know that the only way to truly win any game, is to control both teams. 
Thus, Umar is beefin’ wit’ Tariq, and Uncle Tom is beefin’ wit’ both of em’. 

Now, it’s painfully obvious that whitey’s got a vested interest in throwing every resource at his disposal to keep us from unifying with each other—cause that’s the only virtue that’s gonna’ help us defeat white fascism. Economic plans (i.e. money and credit) ain’t gonna’ work—cause they control the value of that. We can amass literally hundreds of billions of dollars collectively—and we already have by the way—but if fascists devalue whatever monetary resource(s) we have, we’re broke all over again. And we can’t educate our way out of this, cause whitey controls the value of that too. Meaning, if collectively half of Black americans got Phds, fascists would just create a higher level of collegiate degree that justifies keeping us out of certain positions.

*Note: If you’re a young Black man or woman reading this, I’m not saying you shouldn’t get educated or strive to make as much money as you can. Remember, contextually, I’m talking about how the Black Diaspora collectively can get out from underneath the tyrannies of white fascism. Moreover, I’m saying that if you’re in the process of getting an education, understand the game that’s being run on you and guard your subconscious mind. Cause that’s what educational institutions must target to reinforce reasons why you should hate yourself and everyone who looks like you. Now, unity is a long-term goal, but I also understand that Black people above the age of 30 ain’t thinkin’ about changing, or doing the subconscious work required to really change. So what’s needed right now, are Black Nationalist homeschooling collectives that’ll teach our children the three “r’s” without the self-hating messages we got. And those children, with a self-loving mind-set, will be the ones to get us to some kind of real unity. And this is something I’ll write about in a future post.

But even with all the resources whitey has at their disposal, they’re still destined to fail. And here’s 3 reasons why…

Reason#3: white birthrates have fallen below replacement levels for the last several decades—and they’ll continue to fall.

Now, if you’ve been reading this Blog for a hot minute, you’ve heard me say this ad nauseum (and please don’t take my word for whitey’s birthrates falling below replacement levels, go look this up yourself). But what might be different is my saying they’ll continue to fall. 

And why do I say that?

Simple. Cause at the nucleus of white fascism are initiatives to keep Black men and women away from each other. And this is the real reason why they’ve mainstreamed homosexuality and the “#METOO” movements. It’s so Black men, who’ve got the most genetic power to breed them and their kind out of existence, won’t create any offspring with that same level of genetic power. And the #METOO movement, is really there to make femininity look more powerful and attractive to Black men, so we’ll choose that and give up our masculinity.

Now, you might be saying, what a sec’ bruh—white men are gonna’ be affected by these initiatives too. Yep, they certainly are—but whitey’s so hell-bent on keeping Black men and women apart, they don’t realize, those same initiatives are what’s gonna’ keep white birthrates below replacement levels—permanently.

Case in point, for decades, I’ve heard about the klansmen inspired plan of poisoning the water supply of predominately Black neighborhoods, but for several decades I’ve never seen it happen. Now, you might be like, hold up bruh—what about the Flint, Michigan “water crisis”?

Okay, let’s look at that real quick. In April of 2014, Flint, MI. stopped using it’s original water supply co., “Lake Huron” water, to save money. Within a month, complaints started coming in about Flint’s water being “undrinkable”, due to massive amounts of lead “contamination”. And the town’s water supply didn’t return to the Lake Huron co. until October of 2015. 

Now, you might say, well then, that sounds like a successful campaign by white fascists to poison waters in a Black area—and yes it does seem that way. But the reason that town returned to it’s original water supplier at all, was because too many white folks in Flint were being affected by the tainted water. Mind you, the ethnic demographics of Flint are as follows: 57% black, 37% white, 4% Latino and 4% mixed race, according to the u.s. Census. 

So understand, in terms of white fascist initiatives in america, what they do to us, is eventually gonna’ happen to them. And that’s the same reason they’re not gonna’ get into any kind of ethnic war with us either—cause at the end of the day, they know they’ll be too many casualties on their side. Furthermore, they know we’d be fighting with a ferocity we got from their years of abuses towards us. They also know, if we employ our “spiritual” sciences to that battle—it’ll be a wrap. Don’t believe me? Then read up on the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) sometimes. That revolt was preceded by a Voodoo/Vudun ceremony officiated by a Voodoo “priest” named “Dutty Boukman” (look up “Boukman’s Prayer” sometimes). The Black people of Haiti were out-manned and outgunned by Napoleon’s mightiest army—and Haitians still won. And quiet as it’s kept, the same thing happened with Black people here in the states– just look up the “Gullah Wars” (1739-1858) when you get a chance. 

But getting back to the “water crisis”, they now understand that whatever happens to Black people behind employing any kind of white fascist initiative, will find it’s way to them. And coincidentally, a similar “water emergency” happened in my town, but after several days, the emergency was called off—and I suspect it was for much the same reason.

And that’s why whitey’s fervor to mainstream homosexuality to Black men, is having the exact opposite effect it was intended for—meaning, as more and more white men practice homosexuality, less and less white children are being born. So essentially, whitey’s shooting themselves in the foot by promoting the gay lifestyle and “transgenderism”. Thus, Don Trump is shutting down almost every abortion clinic in america, and he’s nearly banned birth control pills.

Reason#2: whitey’s overdosing on drugs and committing suicide in droves.

The suicide rate in america has risen to a “30 year high”, according to america’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC also says that middle-age whites are the ones most affected by this epidemic. Conversely, research done by a “New York Times” journalist in an article titled: “u.s. Suicide rate surges to a 30-year high”, says suicide rates only declined for one ethnic demographic: Black men.*smiles* 

And when it comes to drug use, in 2015 alone, white americans accounted for 90% of this country’s heroin and opioid overdoses. And that says what? It says that Black americans are seeing the people with the most to live for (supposedly), dying by their own hand.

And why’s this happening?

Well, to be honest, whites always consumed (and sold) 90% of illegal drugs in america. But because of their hubris, avarice, and rapacious greed, white-run pharmecutical companies were hell-bent on creating drugs that were just as addictive (if not more so) than “street drugs”. And they succeeded. Thus, we see more and more of the “superior race” imbibing and indulging in these lethal concoctions, which are killing them off.

And in more layman’s terms, it’s karma people—pure and simple.
Reason#1: “free energy” 

And the number one reason white fascists will fail, especially regarding them and their Black freemasonic brethren—is free energy. Now, what exactly do I mean by that? I mean this: irregardless of how many traitorous negro leaders white fascists put into our communities, and how fake their messages are, the Black Nationalist energies most of them are forced to emit are very real. 

Meaning, if Umar and/or Tariq were to hold some kind of lecture in my town tomorrow, I’d definitely go—knowing they’re frauds. Now, you might say, bruh—that don’t make sense—why would you waste good time and money seeing these freemasonic fakes? 

Here’s why… 

Like I said in a previous post, the great thing about energy is, it’s neither good or bad, it just is. Thus, what I’d be doing is harnessing the Black Nationalist energies these two give out. Then, I’d take that energy, and do something positive for the Black Diaspora with it. Such as curating a video, a piece of graphic art, donating some time or money to a Black Nationalist homeschooling collective, or, I’d write a Blog post—like I’m doing now. 

So, I’ve said all that to say this: nothing will stop the ascension of indigenous Black people, and the precipitous fall of whites.

NOTHING.

When we see whitey not only tanning excessively, but injecting silicon in their lips and butts to look like us, and/or doing everything they can to dress, dance, talk and sing like we do. And when we see every national chain store (i.e. Wallmart, Target, Old Navy, etc.) using Hip-Hop vernacular to sell their wares—and we see white folks actively cannibalizing their communities, we know they’re “goners”.

Now, like I’ve said previously, whitey’s not gonna’ go quietly–but it’s when we see them fighting hardest (like they are now) that we know they’re in their death throes. And like I’ve also said so many times in the past: the devil’s time is up!

And it’s about time.

Later…

The Hand Signs used by Secret Societies

Concealed Messages—The Importance of Hand Signs to the Illuminati

Since I was asked about the hand signs many use in the elite society,I thought I would put up a few images for you. Most of these pics were taken from the book “Monitor of Freemasonry”. This boom really shows you just about all the hand signs they use. Even many hand shakes they use with each other. I hope this helps.
Raise the right hand…extending the two fingers like a fork…then draw it back over the right shoulder and with a quick motion dart the extended fingers forward in a horizontal direction. It alludes to the penalty of gouging out the eyes of a traitor.
—Second Sign of a Super-Excellent Master Mason Richardson’s Monitor of Freemasonry (p.91)

As we shall see, the llluminati worship deity by many names in many disguises. One such name and disguise is “Jahbuhlun.” In pursuit of their worship of this false God, Jahbuhlun, they have devised many rituals in which they employ “hidden” hand signs. In all the 33 degrees of Scottish Rite Freemasonry and in the rituals of the York Rite, the Order of Skull and Bones, the Ordo Templi Orientis, the Grand Orient Lodge of France, the Grand Lodge of Jerusalem, and on and on in almost all the secret societies and orders, handsigns, and handshakes are prominent.

In Coil’s Masonic Encyclopedia we read:

“The hand is important in Freemasonry…for the purpose of giving and receiving modes of recognition.”1

In J. C. Coopers’s An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Traditional Symbols 2, the author notes that hand signs include the following symbolic meanings:

Hand on Breast—submission and the attitude of a servant or slave
Crossed at wrist (X) — binding or being bound
Hand on neck—sacrifice
Clenched fist—threat, aggression
Raised hand—adoration, worship, horror, amazement
Both hands raised, palm outward—weakness, supplication, acknowledgment, adoration, admiration
Raised to head—thought, care, intellect, wisdom

Numerical hand signs from a Renaissance text on mathematics. Such usage often combines the teachings of numerology with the secret messages of hand communications’.

The International Secret Language

Is the occult hand sign, in its many forms and varieties, the international secret language of the Freemasons and other covert societies? Manfred Adler, in his German-language book, The Freemasons and The Vatican, says the answer to this question is, yes.3
He writes that according to the findings of a United States Senate Committee that investigated the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA),

“Ninety percent of the secret news is transmitted via the media, in particular the press, with the aid of coded texts and pictures.”4

Messages in the Media

Others, too, besides Adler, have noted the frequent use of hand signs in the media as signals of secret society insiders. Juan Maler, Argentine author and Masonic researcher, explains that the use of the hand sign is for the uninitiated a completely trivial and inconspicuous gesture.

“But for the members of the Secret Societies, the hand sign is used as a sign of recognition by those who are in a leading position or who have a mission to fulfill and usually appears with a relevant text.”5

Johannes Rothkranz, German authority on Masonic signs, suggests that,

“If one collects the photos of well-known personalities from the daily papers, then one possesses, in a very short time, a great number of conspicuous and — for those who understand the signs—also meaningful poses.”6

According to Rothkranz, the historic handshake between Helmut Kohl, then the Chancellor of West Germany, and Modrow, the head of the Communist East German regime which sealed the deal for German reunification was clearly a Masonic handshake. Rothkranz further notes that the historic handshake of the two elitists was shown at length on European television.7

A Symbol of Power

Why is the use of the hand considered to be so significant as a means of concealed communications by occultists? The Herder Dictionary of Symbols states that the hand is “a symbol of activity and power.” It notes that finding oneself “in the hands of a ruler or God means being in that person’s power, but also standing under that person’s protection.”8 The dictionary goes on to say that the “shaking or offering of the hand is a sign of friendly openers, devotion or forgiveness.” But a closed hand signifies secrets or keeping silent. Other uses of hand signs are to indicate fear, threats, devotion, admiration, and argument.

The Herder Dictionary explains, too, that, “In antiquity, covered or veiled hands were generally customary when one approached high dignitaries.” Hands with palms resting on one’s knees express deep concentration and reflection.9

The hand can also be used as a threat to any would-be traitors or betrayer of the Illuminist cause. In the authoritative Richardson’s Monitor of Freemasonry we find an example of this in the second sign of the Super Excellent Master Mason. The sign consists of raising the right hand, making the two first fingers like a fork, and simulating the gouging out of the eyes of a “traitor.”

On the Other Hand…

There is a great symbolic difference between the use of the left and right hands. The right hand is said to be the hand of blessing, a good and positive influence, and those who use it in the occult world are known as those on the “right-handed path.” This is considered “white magic.”

Those on the left-handed path, however, are practitioners of “black magic.” Full-fledged Satanists are typically of the left-handed path, though, in reality, it does not matter to the devil which hand is used!

The left hand is ever considered the sinister hand. It is associated with words like diabolical, witchlike, clever, deceptive, sly, cunning, evil, wrong, backward, and perverse. The evil eye is said to be the left eye. Some early Christians (for example, the writer of the apocryphic Gospel of Nicodemus) taught that of the two thieves crucified next to Jesus, the one at his left side rejected truth and was consigned to hell.
An odd, old drawing of a priest with hands in prayer, but aimed downwards toward Satan!
At Left: Josephine Bonaparte’s Palm from Mlle Le Normand’s Les Memoires historiques et secrets de l’lmperatrice Josephine, Paris, 1827.
At Right: The Sabazios Hand. Bronze symbol of the syncretic Jewish mystery cult of Sabazios in Asia Minor. Circa First Century, C.E. (Collection of the British Museum)

Witches throughout history have danced in ritual circles to the left, that is, counterclockwise. Druid priests do likewise as they dance and march around the holy stone at Tara, Shrine of Mother Earth. To blaspheme God, some Satanists and witches derive pleasure in giving the sign of the cross with their left hands.

But while witches and deep occultists are aware of the sinister nature and meaning of the left hand symbolically, one of the foremost Masonic authorities evidently has a more favorable view. Professor James Curl, author of the reference book, The Art and Architecture of Freemasonry, writes that, “The left hand is the symbol of equity.”10
In other words the symbol of justice and fairness. Strange, indeed, unless one elevates the devil to the virtuous level of one who serves justice and brings equity or equality. But then, why would a Masonic authority think otherwise of the Lodge’s true Grand Master, the Prince of the Power of the Air, aka Lucifer?

An Indicator of Attitude

According to most reference books of the occult, the positioning of the hand on a particular part of the body indicates one’s mental attitude and inner meaning. A hand placed on the breast indicates a tender, loyal or sympathetic attitude. Placed on the neck, the hand denotes sacrifice and penalty, while the joining of hands signifies mystic marriage and fidelity.
Three or more people linking hands signifies the joining of forces or energy, and is expressive of a virile fraternity and of solidarity in the face of danger.

The authors of A Dictionary of Symbols note that the hand expresses “ideas of action, as well as those of power and dominion.” They say it is also a sign of royalty. The Jewish Kabbala (or Cabala) teaches that the left hand is the “hand of punishment,” while the righthand is the “hand of blessing.”11

The same reference guide explains that the word “manifestation” derives from the same root as “manus,” the Latin word for hand. “What is manifest can be held in, or grasped by, the hand.”12

The Fingers Can Be Revealing

The position of a specific finger, or fingers, of a hand may also denote great importance. Sammy Davis, Jr., the black entertainer and member of the infamous Sinatra “rat pack,” confessed in his autobiography, Yes, I can, to being a Satan worshipper. The talented singer/dancer said that as a Satanist he painted the fingernail of his left-hand “pinkie” finger ebony black as a sign. “The chicks loved it,” said Davis, “and found it really a sexual turn-on.”
Some Islamic imams (teachers) preach that the hand of Fatima, a revered daughter of Mohammed, represents the summation of the whole religion of Islam, and that Fatima’s index finger points heavenward to Allah.

A hand with finger pointed to or touching the lip indicates, “Be silent.” A finger touching or pointing to the head signifies “intellect or wisdom.”

The pictures and illustrations in this section and the immediately following sections give evidence of the importance the Illuminati minions give to the use of hands, either in handshakes and grips, or in various poses. The old phrase, “a show of hands” certainly has a multiplications of meanings to the members of secret societies.

Open to Interpretation?

A word of caution and advice is in order, however. Although I have used the best reference guides and the best knowledge obtainable from myriad investigative sources, it is sometimes very difficult to judge and evaluate a particular handshake, hand sign, pose or grip. For one thing, even though a masonic reference book or occult textbook may clearly spell out the specifications for a type of grip or sign, the people who practice it are not always so precise.

I noted in a 20-year career in the U.S. Air Force that while the military manuals and guidebooks clearly explain how to perform a hand salute, not all in uniform complied. Some high-ranking officers render a shoddy, confusing, lackadaisical salute while others give a snappy, precise salute exactly as the textbook prescribes. One can see a hundred different types of salutes at a typical Air Force Base exchanged on a given day, each a little bit different in one aspect or the other. And, of course, if you compare the way the U.S. military salutes with the salute of a British Sergeant Major, the difference is striking, indeed.

Still, even taking into account the human factor, it is possible to identify many of the hand signs and poses given and used by the elite. Check out my selection on the pages that follow and see if you agree.
Many secret orders and societies display and use secret handshakes and signs. In Wales (Great Britain) the Order of the True Ivorites was established in 1836 and prospered for many years. Some believe two lodges of Ivorites still exist today.
