SYNOPSIS OF THE FRAUDULENT FRIEDMANS: THE BACON CIPHERS IN THE SHAKESPEARE WORKS

 By A Phoenix 

For over sixty years deluded Bacon and Shakespeare scholars supported by universities around the four corners of the globe, fanned by the international news media, have deceived the rest of the world into believing that the Friedmans, the two greatest cryptographers of the twentieth century, had once and for all in their book The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined put an end to the notion of Baconian ciphers being present in the Shakespeare plays, a falsehood which continues to deceive the world to the present day.

This is a story about one of the greatest literary frauds of all time fully revealed here for the first time that will absolutely shock Shakespeare scholarship and the rest of the world and necessitate a complete re-assessment of Francis Bacon’s true authorship of the Shakespeare works.

From a very early age Francis Bacon was given a baptism into ciphers and codes and other arcane cryptic devices for concealing and communicating secret and hidden information. His father Lord Keeper and de facto Lord Chancellor of England Sir Nicholas Bacon and his uncle Secretary of State Sir William Cecil were the twin pillars of the Elizabethan Reformation and effectively the heads of the secret state. The lifeblood of the Elizabethan state and the English Secret Service headed by Sir Francis Walsingham were secret ciphers and codes and its three principal pillars Bacon, Cecil and Walsingham went to extraordinary lengths to maintain a cryptographic hegemony over their dangerous European rivals and the domestic enemies of the English government. Early in the Elizabethan reign Sir William Cecil and Sir Nicholas Bacon directed the great mathematician and cryptographic expert Dr John Dee to seek out a rare manuscript copy of Johannes Trithemius’s Steganographia. The spy, intelligencer and secret government agent Dr Dee had a profound and extensive interest in cryptology and after tracking down a prized manuscript of Steganographia on the continent he returned with it to England, where a copy of it was placed in the hands of his political masters. He was afterwards a mentor to the young Francis Bacon who possessed an all-consuming and profound fascination for all ciphers and codes and other cryptographic devices necessary for a life in the English Secret Service.

In 1576 a fifteen year old Francis Bacon travelled in the train of the Ambassador-elect Sir Amias Paulet for a three year stay at the English Embassy in Paris which stood at the very centre of European intrigue and espionage where he was joined by the great English cryptographer Thomas Phelippes with the two of them occupied with ciphers and other areas of cryptography on an almost daily basis. It was during his time in Paris that Bacon later recalled how he invented his famous bi-literal cipher, a cipher system he later secretly inserted into his Shakespeare works. Living in Paris at the time when Bacon was busy working with and inventing new ciphers was the diplomat and cryptographer Blaise de Vigenère with whom Bacon is believed to have collaborated on his Traicte des Chiffre or secret ways of writing.  

In 1591 there appeared in London a Latin edition of a milestone work on cryptology by the Italian polymath and playwright Giambattista della Porta entitled De Fvtivis Literarvm Notis printed by John Wolfe, and dedicated to Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland. Some two centuries later there was discovered at Northumberland House (at the time in the ownership of his ancestor Earl Percy, afterwards the Duke of Northumberland) what has come to be known as the Northumberland MSS that originally contained several of Bacon’s writings among them his Shakespeare plays Richard II and Richard III. On the outer-cover of The Northumberland Manuscript the name of Bacon/Francis Bacon and his pseudonym Shakespeare/William Shakespeare are scribbled on more than a dozen occasions. Down the left side appears Honorificabiletudine a variant of the long word honorificabilitudinitatibus in Loves Labours Lost (5:1:41). Further down the page we are met with the entry ‘revealing day through every crany peepes and see Shak’, line 1086 of The Rape of Lucrece ‘revealing day through every cranny spies’. In particular above the entry for Bacon’s Shakespeare play Richard II appears the entry ‘By Mr. ffrauncis William Shakespeare’ and further down the word ‘Your’ is twice written across his pseudonym William Shakespeare-so it reads ‘Your William Shakespeare’.

With the spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham now dead the headquarters of the English Secret Service had been transferred to Essex House on the Strand the grand stately residence of the royal favourite Robert Devereux, the second Earl of Essex. Under the roof of Essex House, Francis and Anthony Bacon ran a vast domestic and foreign intelligence network of spies and intelligencers operating across the European continent. Working out of Gray’s Inn and Essex House, Francis and Anthony also set up a literary workshop with connections to English printers and publishers employing writers, translators, and scribes for distribution of private manuscripts, books, plays, masques and other entertainments. This Bacon-Essex circle included the Earl of Southampton to whom Bacon dedicated Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece and to whom many of his Shakespeare sonnets were addressed.

Francis and Anthony Bacon were the joint heads of the foreign and domestic arms of the English Secret Service that evolved into British Intelligence in other words the equivalent of MI5 and MI6. They were in charge of gathering intelligence domestically and from all over Europe for which they employed a highly organised network of secret agents and spies whose important intelligence and information was conveyed through secret codes and ciphers and the interception of ciphered correspondence of enemy agents, deciphered by Francis, Anthony, and Thomas Phelippes.

In his first major acknowledged work The Advancement of Learning Bacon sets out a series of cipher systems which he named Simple Cipher, Kay Cipher, Wheel Cipher and his Bi-literal Cipher, that he secretly incorporated into the 1623 Shakespeare First Folio. Shortly before the publication of the First Folio in November 1623 there appeared in Latin Bacon’s truly monumental De Augmentis Scientiarum Libri IX which included a much more expansive and detailed explanation of his Bi-literal Cipher. Soon after the publication of the De Augmentis and the Shakespeare First Folio there appeared the extremely rare work on cryptology entitled Cryptomenytices et Cryptographiae Libri IX by one Gustavus Selenus, a pseudonym for Augustus, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg, a near five hundred page work published at Luneburg early in 1624. The revealing title page of the Cryptomenytices et Cryptographiae contains a pictorial cryptogram depicting Francis Bacon giving a figure holding a spear dressed in actor’s boots, representing the actor William Shakspere, a quarto or book of plays, who is shown carrying them off into the distance toward a building representing the Globe Theatre.

Some three centuries later the discovery of the presence of Bacon’s Biliteral Cipher was announced to the world in a series of volumes published by the remarkable Elizabeth Wells Gallup entitled The Bi-literal Cypher of Sir Francis Bacon Discovered in his Works. On examining the prefatory material of the 1623 Shakespeare First Folio Gallup deciphered a series of revelations about Francis Bacon’s secret life and enormous corpus of writings revealing that not only was he the secret author of the Shakespeare works but also the works published in the names of among others Spenser, Greene, and Marlowe, and that he was the concealed royal son of Queen Elizabeth and Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester.

News of these revelations soon reached the ears of Colonel George Fabyan who had had set up his  Riverbank estate located west of Chicago which is still shrouded in secrecy and mystery to the present day. It was here that Colonel Fabyan provided Gallup with a staff and extensive resources to continue her investigations into the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher and its presence in the Shakespeare works and other Baconian publications set forth anonymously or in the names of others. She was afterwards joined at Riverbank by William F. Friedman and his future wife Elizebeth Smith, the widely acclaimed duo who went on to become the two greatest cryptographers of the twentieth century and the authors of The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined.

The years spent by the Friedmans at Riverbank are not well-documented and what we know or believe of their time there almost entirely derives from the story told by the Friedmans themselves in a series of unpublished manuscripts and lectures and their book The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined.   

For the next few years the Friedmans worked closely alongside Elizabeth Wells Gallup assisting her in a complex and minute study of the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher and its links to the Shakespeare First Folio and soon after the Friedmans were appointed the joints Heads of the Riverbank Department of Ciphers.

During this period the Riverbank Cipher Department headed by the Friedmans produced a series of pamphlets known as the Riverbank Laboratories Publications on Cryptography. These comprise of a series of important ground-breaking technical monographs dealing with cryptography and cryptanalysis and several dealing with Gallup’s work on the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher. A number of the volumes on the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher were issued anonymously and the identity of their author (s), who were of course known to the Friedmans, remain unknown to the world at large to the present day.

For more than half a century the Friedmans had every opportunity to reveal the identity of the authors of these anonymous Riverbank publications on the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher but repeatedly refused to do so. The reason why, is the Friedmans themselves, were the anonymous authors of these tracts in which it is emphatically stated that the presence of Bacon’s cipher system identified by Elizabeth Wells Gallup has been repeatedly tested and dissected, and was and is, demonstrable beyond any and all doubt.

In 1997 there appeared a still virtually unknown work entitled The Sabines at Riverbank: Their Role in the Science of Architectural Acoustics by John W. Kopec. The book issued by the Acoustical Society of America was limited to only a thousand copies on a subject which falls outside the ordinary scope of literary scholarship and largely for this reason still remains unknown to Baconian and Shakespearean scholarship.

In researching the work Kopec fully immersed himself in the history of Riverbank, a history which has barely been glanced at. Virtually all of what little is known of the Riverbank Cipher Department has come down to us through the lens of the Friedmans. Their three main repositories (two unpublished) where they discussed their time at Riverbank provide us with only a very carefully edited version of the circumstances and events surrounding it and their parts played in the authorship of the Riverbank publications on the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher. Their various accounts about their time at Riverbank are marked by inconsistency, factual discrepancy, deliberate omissions, falsehoods, and deceit. Now here for the very first time was a book on Riverbank by an author who had spent more than two decades on site with unlimited access to what records remained of its secret, obscure and hidden past. Kopec’s book is dedicated to Don Williams, son of Fabyan’s chauffeur Bert Williams, who drove the limousine that picked up Elizebeth Smith Friedman from the Newberry Library in Chicago, marking the beginning of her career at Riverbank from 1916 to 1920.

The long-time Riverbank chauffeur Bert Williams knew the Friedmans well and for the years the couple lived on the estate he was in almost daily contact with them, as he was with Elizabeth Wells Gallup, providing him with first-hand inside information about the Riverbank publications on the Bacon Bi-literal Ciphers and their authorship.  

Outside of the records Don Williams ‘Mr. Riverbank’ who was born there in 1920 was a critical source of information for Kopec. Don ‘Mr Riverbank’ Williams, worked at Riverbank for 35 years before retiring in 1985, and knew more about it than any other person alive. In the main body of the text Kopec devoted several pages to the period spent by the Friedmans at the Riverbank estate. His informative discussions with Don Williams included the explosive and far-reaching statement of enormous historical importance to Baconian and Shakespearean scholarship and the truth about Lord Bacon’s authorship of the Shakespeare works: namely, the anonymous The Greatest Work of Sir Francis Bacon issued by the Riverbank Cipher Department was written by the Friedmans, confirming the presence of the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher in the Shakespeare canon.                 

For the rest of their lives the Friedmans remained silent about their authorship of The Greatest Work of Sir Francis Bacon endorsing the presence of the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher in the Shakespeare works and decades later when both Fabyan and Elizabeth Wells Gallup were long dead wrote The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined wherein they fraudulently pretended in the open plain text that no Bacon ciphers were used in the Shakespeare poems and plays in one of the greatest academic and literary frauds of all time. However revealed and demonstrated here for the first time The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined is itself one very elaborate cryptogram containing hidden secret Bacon ciphers repeatedly conveying the concealed cryptographic message that Francis Bacon, Brother of the Rosy Cross, is Shakespeare.

The Friedmans knew there were Bacon ciphers present in the Shakespeare works and that Bacon is the true secret author of the Shakespeare works, a secret which at a single stroke completely collapses the Stratfordian fiction and illusion that the illiterate/semi-illiterate William Shakspere was the author of the Shakespeare plays. It was a secret they took to the graves but not beyond it. For on the tombstone of William and Elizebeth Friedman, one designed by themselves, the two greatest cryptographers of the twentieth century, left a secret cryptographic message:

FRANCIS BACON IS SHAKESPEARE.

Thank you, A. Phoenix for exposing the Fraudulent Friedmans for exactly who they are and what they did. And why they did what they did.

We all experience the loneliness and despair of being a Baconian at times, frustrating indeed. Yet the rewards we enjoy are not Fame nor Reputation, the rewards are about revealing the Truth about Francis Bacon. Too bad the Friedmans sold out for selfish reasons and quick yet empty recognition by "scholars" who the Friedmans were well aware had no idea what they knew as Truth. They may have grabbed a lot of attention, but a life built on deception must have been haunting them. They did leave their clues on who Bacon was. They must have known someone like you and your team would expose them someday.

This is a fascinating work done very well. Thought provoking, and will be a great service for all Baconians.

Hi Rob, thanks so much for your unstinting enthusiam and support. It is astonishing that the Friedmans have thus far got away with such a brazen and blatant literary fraud which has continued to deceive orthodox Bacon and Shakespeare scholars and virtually the rest of the world for the last sixty odd years. Let us hope this marks the beginning of the end not only for the Fraudulent Friedmans but for the Stratfordian illusion that the illiterate/semi-illiterate William Shakspere of Stratford was the author of the greatest works of literature in the history of the world. Even after all this time I am still absolutely flabbergasted that the world has for so long believed that an illiterate wrote the divine Shakespeare poems and plays. But (this is one of my favourite sayings) it is never wise to underestimate the stupidity of humankind and as the Great One himself said-Such Fools These Mortals Be.

I often imagine that Lord Bacon and his Rosicrucian Brotherhood residing in their Rosicrucian heaven must cry tears of laughter that most of the world still believe in the embarrasing and risible Stratfordian illusion and just for good measure that those relatively few doubters who don't, subscribe to the view that the true Shakespeare, was either Marlowe (d. 1593) or Oxford (d. 1604), merely replacing one preposterous absurdity with another. You just couldn't make it up!

Just look around Bacon's New Atlantis right now! 😉

Today I took my 87 year old Dad to my Dr. to look at some alternative medicine and therapy to maybe help him get some of his short-term memory back. Hormones, vitamins, and a life change, diet change, exercise, etc. Common sense, but do we in America have a doctor who tries and wants us to get healthier? Rarely, they prescribe pills (getting free vacations, meals, bonuses from big Pharma) and then more pills to compensate for our American "Fat, Dumb, and Happy" mentality. We are all programmed from childhood by marketing. Eat greasy fat food, in volume, drink beer, in excess, eat sweets and high-sodium munchies, watch TV all day long being programmed by commercials, take more pills every year to keep that lifestyle going. We all end up with heart disease, diabetes, dementia, strokes, and so on.

All of the big money makers in this health disease have lobbyist who seduce politicians to allow this to keep happening.

The Stratford lie is part of the all-encompassing lie we live in daily in our maturing New Atlantis. It seems it keep expanding and reaching every part of our lives, and future. Even the "Big Lie" right now is just the latest of an entire profitable "rich-get-richer" lie.

Hoping maybe we can break the house-of-cards with the Strat lie, and the rest of the cards might start to fall.

Such Fools These Mortals Be.

🙂

Interesting choice indeed ! 😊 I worked on it yesterday, after seeing the video.

It seems effectively that the cover hides the truth about Shake-speare's author-"ship" 😉

While in bed last night I kept thinking how awful it was the Friedmans doing such a disservice to Baconians. For what? Fame and shallow notice by Fools?

Then I thought, maybe it was blackmail. Someone had something on the Friedmans, a secret they did not want shared. Thus the depressions, suicidal thoughts, fear. So writing a book that discredits even their own work to support the Strat lie got them out of a situation, yet it appears they still shared in cipher hints the Truth, even on the cover of their book.

Just a thought...

A little FREE thinking here after a night of wild thoughts.

The choice of these pages was no accident. They were very deliberate. We know the Friedmans were top cryptologists, we know they were well aware of Bacon's story (he was Shakespeare, he was born to Elizabeth, etc.), we know they and their team spent a lot of time focused on and studying the Shakespeare works. Of course they were very familiar with the Bacon ciphers. They were doing B'Hive type work as a team with some of the best cipher seekers in the world. The Friedmans picked these pages for the cover of their book.

What we don't see is the left column of page 62. We do see this though on the right, "By this our Booke is drawne: wee'le but seale". Hidden on the left if anyone would take an interest in the page is the beginning of that thought, "By that time will our Booke, I thinke, be drawne." So happens the "B" that starts that sentence is part of a BACON hint with the word "Hang" which we have seen in several places in Shakespeare.

image.png.0103091b7a0c2400967181ecc3d6549c.png

Star counting the words of speech after the first "Booke" up to the word "seale" after the second "booke" and there are 287 words:

image.png.55434b41b44ab15d0e1e739d2d294d7a.png

Certainly the Friedmans were aware of this typical Bacon/Rosicrucian cipher technique. Of course they knew. And for anyone who is curious about the pages on their cover they would recognize if they were good at this kind of work. Hanging Bacon (twice) and 287 words from Booke ending with "seale".

But I am seeing something else as to maybe why they chose these pages. What if they chose these pages to also tell their story? They lied in this book, yet offer clues that tell the opposite. Really doesn't make sense.

Read the last 6 lines of page 62:

Opinion, that did helpe me to the Crowne,
Had still kept loyall to possession,
And left me in reputelesse banishment,
A fellow of no marke, nor likelyhood.
By being seldome seene, I could not stirre,
But like a Comet, I was wondred at,

"Opinion, that did helpe me to the Crowne"?

CROWNE is 33 Short cipher using the 26 letter codes. Let's say this is William F. Friedman speaking. We all find places where Bacon tells his story and we can relate as it sometimes seems to relate to our lives. That's a part of Bacon's genius and what makes Shakespeare so amazing. So maybe William remembered these lines and is telling us something. His professional opinion as a cryptologist helped him to Bacon (Crowne) which he "kept loyall to possession." Yet it left him him in "reputeless banishment", a "fellow of no marke, nor likelihood". "By being seldom seene" he could not stir much, but "like a Comet" was wondered at. COMET is 53 Simple cipher.

OK, so yes, that could describe him. He "proved" Bacon ciphers existed in Shakespeare, but it hurt him more than anything from his "fellows", or "the fellows".

Then the next page the story goes on. (I only have a few minutes, so no time to explain).

Perhaps William F. Friedman is suggesting as a Baconian he was basically impotent to make a stir among scholars, and even more so with the rest of the world. By writing a book of lies he would attract attention of the Fools.

With shallow Iesters, and rash Bauin Wits,
Soone kindled, and soone burnt, carded his State,
Mingled his Royaltie with Carping Fooles,
Had his great Name prophaned with their Scornes,
And gaue his Countenance, against his Name,

Maybe it was scheme to attract attention, trick the fools, while hiding the Truth for us to find. What if there is a cipher story in this book that once discovered destroys their own lies and tells the Truth about Bacon?

I know, wild thoughts after a night of dream/wake being mixed. 🙂

THE FRAUDULENT FRIEDMANS

THE BACON CIPHERS IN THE SHAKESPEARE WORKS

By A Phoenix

Professor Pierre Henrion of Versailles University, a renowned expert in cryptography and member of the French Secret Cipher Service in the Second World War said of the Friedmans and their book The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined:

‘To anyone with real cryptological experience it is hard to reconcile the impartiality claimed by the authors with the skill and legerdemain by which certain danger-points have been avoided. It is these unexpected manipulations which have led me at times to suspect a “command performance”. . .[in] what is admittedly a very clever “plant”. . .The book, granted, does away with the fanciful work of some amateur cryptologists, an easy task, an empty triumph. But, having thus gained the confidence of the readers, the authors deceive them by “Scientific” demonstrations which they know to be false.’

Professor Pierre Henrion, ‘Scientific Cryptology Examined’, Baconiana, Vol. XLIII, No 160 March 1960, pp. 43-63, at pp. 43-4, 47; Vol. LXVI, No. 183, December 1983, p.76.

The first words after the Title page are these:

image.png.0f6853154f3ca7255af34c28fbce7e32.png

We were signaled by the Friedmans from the cover to look at page 62, Henry IV, Part 1, 3:1.

We saw a Hanging Bacon cipher clue. Now they ask us to "prove it" following up with "To hang a doubt on.." the following book?

LOL

Is this not so obvious, tempting as a low hanging ripe apple? LOL

Right now I am very excited that not only has A. Phoenix blown the Friedman lies into the open, they pierced the veil the Friedmans left and we are starting to see that this book as a "test', a "puzzle" in fact, a "game" for possibly the wave of Baconians they may have even expected immediately to dissect and discover what they left.

"so prove it"

67 years later, they are passed on, died famous for making Baconian ciphers a joke, when the joke is on the fools who believed them.

Time to give the Friedmans their attention for lying to the World, but hopefully to give them credit for one the biggest cosmic jokes ever created making Stratfordians the butt of the joke! 😉

Hi Rob, the above quote from Othello following the title page reads 'Act III Scene III' or Act 3 Scene 3 thus when the numbers are placed together it gives us 33 Bacon in simple cipher and we may read 'III/III' as 111/111 Bacon/Bacon in kay cipher.

I saw that, yet another clue left by them! 🙂

As I've been running around today and left from a strange Baconian dream state last night, rested and excited when I woke up, I can't help but feel like you opened a door that was meant to be opened. When I look st the Archives.org facsimile a few pages are blocked from the public. I signed up, never needing to before, but yet to see them.

I may play a bit this afternoon, but have another early day tomorrow on the road. 🙂

Question keeps coming up, "Why would they LIE! Knowing exactly who Bacon was and all he did?"

Were they selfish frauds seeking fame from people they were always laughing at, and likely had no respect for, or maybe did they have a totally genius plan to become one of the biggest Stratfordian arguments knowing it would be blown away someday and leave the Strats all looking like "Fooles" by stating publically how brilliant the Friedmans were?

😉

Is this an act of "WIT" that Bacon himself moved them to do, even if for future ages after the Friedmans died famous for the wrong reasons?

Hi A. Phoenix and Rob,  in the above quote we have also TT in acrostic ( Thirty-Three ) and  I love the "Pit" in telestich! 😀

Too much fun!

One the biggest Starfordian tools is becoming a Baconian HIT!

Now I wonder if Looney left the Bacon Truth ciphered in his book that was likely a joke as well! LOL

LOL

and one more...

It seems that the last page of the TABLE is very interesting.

Right after the Alphabetical list, I noticed yesterday in the video,  two numbers that are detailed:

100 ( simple cipher of FRANCIS BACON) .................... 157, 62 (or in other term FRA ROSI CROSSE (or WILLIAM TUDOR I ? 🙂 ) and F.B.)

287 (Kay cipher of FRA ROSI CROSSE and WILLIAM TUDOR I)

Bravo! 👏👏👏👏👏

It’s an absolute masterpiece, I can’t put it down.  You and your partner deserve every accolade going. It’s a labour of love - and Fra. Bacon will be so proud of you and the way you have left no stone unturned to bring the light of truth to the world x

Oops, Rob. I see what I did there. Using the phrase  ‘light of truth’ was unconscious.  My apologies!

I've now watched the video and read 3/4 or more of the paper. I actually started towards the end (last two chapters) then went back to the start. The phrase “Fraudulent” Friedmans is clearly taken from the quote by the Professor about their “deceit” but were they fraudulent? I agree with comments above, this sounds a little like when people slap modern-day NDAs (gagging orders) on people. It was censure 1957 style! Why else would they have gone to so much effort to encode the truth in the book and on their gravestone? Why did Folger suddenly seem to change his view?

I think (and I am the antithesis of a conspiracy theorist) it does appear that pressure may have been applied on them to produce a result that would not cause ructions, for whatever reason (commercial or political).

I believe that times have changed enormously in many ways, but not in others. Control and abuse of power  are timeless tools of the un-evolved, but there are young cryptographers/cryptanalysts who have been born into an era of greater truth and some of them will be cheering this paper on (but are unable to speak openly due to contracts they signed). I don’t doubt that they will find clever ways to anonymously support your findings though.

The most obvious reason why this has to remain suppressed,  and why you are likely to come under some form of attack from the Stratfordians and maybe even Folger for publishing this, is commercial and political.
 

As to the commercial angle, to admit or endorse any of this to the world at large means people and families all over the world, but especially in Stratford Upon Avon,  would lose face, custom, jobs and livelihoods. No one wants to be the one who pulls the plug with the result people in the Will Shakespeare industry are unable to feed their family, so they’ll continue to try and find ways to say you (all Baconians) are wrong or deluded.

With my damage/crisis limitation hat on, if I were a Stratfordian who does realise they may have misjudged the situation, I’d be trying to think how to parse this so that it’s a win/win for all.

Keeping Will in the loop as a co-writer would help.

The most obvious route though would be to slowly begin re-bigging up Francis Bacon and introducing a huge tourist industry around him, which could include Twickenham House, Gorhambury, Grey’s Inn and even by extension Kenilworth Castle ....and obviously America! 

Which brings me on to the political angle. In a world full of David Icke conspiracy-type “nuts” you can’t just land the truth on a country already in turmoil that a Rosicrucian/Freemason masterminded the colonisation of America and wrote Shakespeare. A Lord Chancellor is one thing but it’ll just be seen as fodder for the  “Illuminati” conspiracy brigade. It could backfire and be dangerous to Freemasonry too. People in America are already trying to burn down lodges, convinced they are all evil.

For all these reasons, and more, the powers that be who know the truth, know this has to be handled slowly and carefully, not via some overnight expose (from the Friedman’s in 1957 or now), exploding onto the world.
 

I’m pretty confident that looked at through this lens, the hidden truth will indeed by brought forth by time- at the right time.

Well done again AP. It’s a riveting read and each person who becomes individually enlightened to the truth will one day become a part of a force that can’t be stopped.
