Report from the Special Conclave wherein the Knights Templar reinstated S.K. David Kussman as Deputy Grand Master, overturned S.K. Michael Johnson's controversial decisions (except his decisions to recognize that the C.B.C.S. is not a Templar body), and ultimately removed S.K. Michael Johnson from office.

In this episode we explore the history of the"CBCS," a system of esoteric Freemasonry originated in France in the latter 1770s and charted in the US in 1934 which, for reasons that become apparent, has been targeted by a particular faction of the Grand Encampment of Knights Templar's leadership for over a decade.

(And hear me screw up Thomas Smith Webb's name - for some reason I always want to call him William Webb!!...

It must be the hats.... For some reason, an apparent series of ultra vires acts from the Grand East of the Grand Encampment have now escalated to include unilateral removal of the Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Encampment (an elected officer) without specific cause. 

Meanwhile, theGrand Encampment is reeling from the unilateral overturning of a super-majority decision to end the feud with the Rectified Rite. 

What is going on?  As ...

Highlights of the 68th Triennial Conclave of the Grand Encampment of Knights Templar. Among notable moments, the voting delegates approved a statutory amendment to allow the Templar apron (triangular with skull and crossbones included); voted down including an attestation of faith incorporated into a uniform petition for the Orders of Knighthood; and, perhaps most historically of all, repealed the standing resolution from 2012 that...

After maybe nine months after being asked, Ben was finally able to attend a session of the Masonic Legacy Society. In this episode, Ben shares his experience during one of the sessions and posits why the format the Society has adopted is so effective - for prompting reflection, for articulating and sharing discovery, and for bringing light to your Brethren in masonry. We become the change we wish to see in the Fraternity. This form...

After a two week hiatus following the death of his Dad, the RMM returns, but popular demand, with an update on the Grand Sessions of the Grand Lodge of South Carolina. Masonic procedure may seem like pomp and circumstance 99% of the time. But when needed, the rules of assembly Masons adopt prove their worth. 

Then, is there efficacy in Masonic ritual outside the intent of the Brethren working the degrees? Yes! Listen to find out why...

On April 15 I received an anonymous email from a person claiming to be a Past Grand Officer of the Grand Lodge of South Carolina. He claimed to have incontrovertible evidence that Mike Smith violated the Grand Master's Edict, that he held a Zoom meeting that was more than a simple "wellness check" and constituted a business meeting for the Scottish Rite. The evidence? A copy of an email from Mike Smith and screenshots o...

The Grand Lodge of South Carolina meets this Thursday, April 22, at 10 a.m. in Charleston, SC. Ahead of what is sure to be a contentious session, we interview W.Bro. Billy Wall, the Secretary of Union-Kilwinning No. 4. In December 2020 the Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master showed up at Union-Kilwinning to arrest their Charter. Billy, his son, and some of the Officers have been charged with unmasonic conduct for holding a meeting...

In this episode, Ben explores the controversial but well documented correlation between certain antidepressant drugs and homicidal mania. 

Nearly every mass shooter seems to have a history with this class of drugs, including Eric Harris (Columbine), who was on Luvox, and James Holmes (Aurora movie theater), who was prescribed a high dose of Zoloft. 

Could these drugs lead to a type of emotional disassociation, where the reward-reflex...

We reluctantly bring you this breaking news from the GLSC where charges of unmasonic conduct have been filed against the Grand Master and his officers for, essentially, dereliction of duty for failing to hold an annual Grand Lodge as soon as reasonably practicable (or by alternative means necessary under the present COVID situation) and for, by the sounds of things, abuses of power.

The Grand Lodge is the members in lodge assembled...

The other day, on the Winding Stairs Facebook group, Tim Hogan accused me of slandering him when I posted a screenshot of his facebook endorsements of Heather Twede, a.k.a. "Mary Magdalene." In proving up the veracity of my claims I posted evidence that Tim Hogan's claim to be Grand Master of the most ancient Templar lineage in the world is just fabrication. In fact, the "real" OSTI (that is, Raymond Bernard'...
