A Very Sirius Election: McCain's 13-Step Program

UPDATE: For those unfamiliar with Masonic symbolism and history, you can find Mackey's Encyclopedia as well as Morals and Dogma and some other excellent resources in searchable format here on It will greatly help if you don't know anything about the Masonic traditions and symbolism we're looking at in this series.

Michael S. pointed this out and I just wanted to take the ball and run with it. We see here a new twist on the McCain/Palin Sirius logo- here the pyramidion is more obviously an obelisk, topped by the five-pointed star. In back we see the stairway motif of the flag's stripes hovering above McCain's head. What did McCain say to the crowd? Here's a brief excerpt:
"A century ago, President Theodore Roosevelt's invitation of Booker T. Washington to dine at the White House was taken as an outrage in many quarters."
It's interesting to note that the two historical figures McCain chose to cite were both very prominent Freemasons.

Now, remember that the obelisk is meant to symbolize the solar phallus of Ra and that the star represents the goddess Isis.


Pretty explicit there, wouldn't you say?

Earlier this year we looked at new research revealing Ra as the god of a green sun, and we later linked Ra to the infamous Great Seal. Seeing as that there are thirteen steps in this pyramid and thirteen stripes in the flag, we might speculate that the stripes in Obama's logo are indeed meant to symbolize a stairway. One that, if we look at the symbolism in Phoenix, Senator McCain is not meant to climb.

You know, there's a lot of information out there about Masonic symbolism and its uses in politics, but a lot of it is written by con$piracy huck$ters and paranoia pimps. A lot of it's just plain wrong. Not too long ago I was writing Freemasonry's obituary in the cultural sphere, but I think I was a bit premature. For someone who started out studying Masonic symbolism in a historical context, it's pretty astonishing to see it played in real time like this. Allegedly.

Tomorow, we'll try to piece together what it all may mean. The implications of it all are pretty astonishing...
