Book Description
The Last Degree is a fictionalized account of how Freemasons and other secret societies set up the world for takeover. Ancient writings foretell a ‘Shining One’ who emerges as the world’s prophet. A murder of a Most Worshipful mason resembles a secret oath. A cop gets too close to solving the crime. Paranoid preppers go underground, preparing for war.
Headlines such as the Norway massacre, meltdown of the European Union, unscrupulous media, animal die-offs, Middle Eastern unrest, and U.S. shrinking power make the plot relevant to present day. This book is an ode to Christians, Birthers, 2012ers, Truthers, preppers, and/or other conspiracy junkies who enjoy Dan Brown, Jesse Ventura, Brad Meltzer, Alex Jones, Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye.


Dwight took off his crown, signifying he was no longer playing King Solomon.

“Sacrifice is expected for ones that you love.  Do you love me?” Dwight shouted.  “Then bow down before me and offer praise!”

Everyone knelt and laid their head down to the floor, chanting 'Most Worshipful, Most Worshipful' several times before Dwight commanded them to get up.

In a manic energetic state, Dwight vociferated, “Et vitam impendere vero!”  All repeated, with the three new pledges joining in.  Minutes later, he began to calm down.  “To sacrifice life for truth - that is what we must always do!  You must trust me as your Most Worshipful and sacrifice at my command!  Are you prepared to do this?”  All three pledges nodded.

Dwight pulled the content baby out of Arthur's arms and threw it high into the air.  As the baby began to descend, Dwight took his sword and hacked through its neck, decapitating it before it hit the floor.  Only the three pledges shrieked in horror.  He sinisterly smiled as he picked up the head and body, revealing it was only a doll.

“Don't believe with your eyes, but believe with your knowledge.  We are his chosen and will soon be exalted.”

The three men looked down at their hands and tried not to scream.  They were covered in blood.

“Sacrifice, my brothers, sacrifice.  I will teach you well.  You are all Chiefs of the Tabernacle!  Let us go and celebrate!” Dwight gleamed.

Conspiracy Theory:  What exactly is New World Order?
By Dina Rae

Most have probably heard the term, New World Order, but are confused by its meaning.  To clarify all prior notions, New World Order is not a fact (yet), but a theory the paranoid hold about the direction in which the world is headed.  The theory states that an inner circle of power plans on taking over the world through economic, political, and military actions.  Once they achieve a one world government, those who are a drain (weak/poor people and nations) and those who make trouble will be exterminated.  Others who play the game will be subject to mind control and constant surveillance.

Okay, this is where it gets fuzzy.  Yes, this sounds like a comic book with the villain trying to dominate the world, but hear me out.  The most crucial part of the theory rests on who the inner circle is.  The answer is up for debate, but most conspiracy junkies point fingers at:

Freemasonry: A secret organization comprised of York, Scottish, and Shriner Orders.  All are based on a series of rites the mason must pass in order to advance in degrees.  Those at the top of the pyramid hold ancient secrets and power, allowing them to pull the strings of foreign and domestic policies.  America’s forefathers belonged to the Order.  Fourteen presidents were confirmed as members.  Most believe Johnson, Carter, Reagan, and both Bushes need to be added onto the list.  Abraham Lincoln was confirmed as NOT being a Freemason.

Illuminati: Adam Weishaupt officially formed the group on May 1, 1776 (existed much earlier) in Bavaria/Germany.  Hmmm, does 1776 sound familiar, Americans?  The Illuminati’s most famous members include Newton, Kant, Goethe, Rothchild, Rockefeller, DuPont, and Kennedy.  The official order disappeared once the German monarchy found out about a plot to over throw them.  Many claim they hid under the Scottish Rite of the Freemasonry.

Bilderberg Group: Their name derives from the first meeting held in the Hotel de Bilderberg in Netherlands, 1954. The annual invite-only group consists of leaders, royalty, and business people, meeting in different locations always in America, Canada, and Europe.  They never explain the purpose of the secretive meetings and refuse all media access.  The security detail is as thick as it gets.

Council of Foreign Relations: They claim to be a “think-tank” on foreign policy formed by David Rockefeller.  Huge impact on the decisions made by presidents, prime ministers, and kings.
Many of these groups cross over.  Others worth a mention are the Bohemian Club, Club of Rome, Trilateral Commission, NATO, and Skull and Bones.  Great movies about conspiracy are Manchurian Candidate, Conspiracy Theory, Total Recall (futuristic form), and my favorite, Enemy of the State.  TheLast Degree is a fictionalized version of who New World Order could play out. 
It’s available on Amazon for $1.99.
