The Fall of Mystery Babylon


Since writing this follow-up to Mystery Babylon, I am stunned to see how America continues to fulfill this prophecy, even a few years later… First published August 11th, 2014. 


WHEN I began to write Mystery Babylon in 2012, I was taken aback at the remarkable, mostly unknown history of America, where the forces of darkness and light had a hand in her birth and formation. The conclusion was stunning, that despite the forces of good in that beautiful nation, the mysterious foundations of the country and its present state seem to fulfill, in dramatic fashion, the role of “Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth.” [1]cf. Rev 17:5; for an explanation as to why, read Mystery Babylon Again, this present writing is not a judgment upon individual Americans, many whom I love and have developed deep friendships with. Rather, it is to shed light on the seemingly deliberate collapse of America that continues to fulfill the role of Mystery Babylon…

I am going to do this in the greatest economy of words possible, synthesizing books, interviews, and numerous articles so that you can understand the prophetic nature of what is happening, and about to happen in the United States, and indeed, the whole world, as central to the Storm that is now here…



St. John describes this “mother of harlots” as riding upon a “beast.” As I explained in Mystery Babylon, the beast essentially comprises those powerful agents in secret societies who continue to advance the nefarious goal of world domination by way of a global economy and religion. [2]cf. Daniel 7:7, Revelation 13:1-3.

…that which is their ultimate purpose forces itself into view—namely, the utter overthrow of that whole religious and political order of the world which the Christian teaching has produced, and the substitution of a new state of things in accordance with their ideas, of which the foundations and laws shall be drawn from mere naturalism. —POPE LEO XIII, Humanum Genus, Encyclical on Freemasonry, n.10, Apri 20thl, 1884

In what were astounding and, and as it turns out, accurate revelations allegedly from the Blessed Mother to the late Fr. Stefano Gobbi of the worldwide Marian Movement of Priests, Our Lady confirms who this beast with seven heads and ten horns from the book of Revelation is. Indeed, what I have shown through historical facts in Mystery Babylon has been confirmed in this message given on the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the first Saturday of June 3rd, 1989:

The seven heads indicate the various masonic lodges, which act everywhere in a subtle and dangerous way. This Black Beast has ten horns and, on the horns, ten crowns, which are signs of dominion and royalty. Masonry rules and governs throughout the whole world by means of the ten horns. —alleged message to Fr. Stefano, To the Priest, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons, n. 405.d-e

Keep in mind, the whole underlying foundation of the secret societies is a philosophical system—a satanic deception that was conceived in the Garden of Eden by the “father of lies,” Satan himself. This philosophical development has been nurtured and carried forward through the centuries to our present day, and given a “soul” by these organized societies:

The organization of the Secret Societies was needed to transform the theorizings of the philosophers into a concrete and formidable system for the destruction of civilization.—Nesta Webster, World Revolution, p. 4 (emphasis mine)

That “formidable system” is now in full throttle.

You are aware indeed, that the goal of this most iniquitous plot is to drive people to overthrow the entire order of human affairs and to draw them over to the wicked theories of this Socialism and Communism—POPE PIUS IX, Nostis et Nobiscum, Encyclical, n. 18, DECEMBER 8, 1849

In 1917, few fully grasped why Our Lady of Fatima was asking specifically for the consecration of Russia—which at that time, was not yet gripped in Communism. There were other pagan nations. Why Russia? The answer is that Russia would become the first soil for the implementation of this philosophical system, that she warned, would spread throughout the world if her call for reparation and consecration of that country were not heeded.

I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, [Russia] will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. —Message of Fatima,

Since we did not heed this appeal of the Message, we see that it has been fulfilled, Russia has invaded the world with her errors. And if we have not yet seen the complete fulfilment of the final part of this prophecy, we are going towards it little by little with great strides.—Fatima seer, Sr. Lucia, Message of Fatima,


Let’s leave Russia for a moment and ask the question: what does this have to do with America? When I first read Revelation 17, which led to writing Mystery Babylon, I was struck by the words:

I saw a woman seated on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names, with seven heads and ten horns… The ten horns that you saw and the beast will hate the harlot; they will leave her desolate and naked; they will eat her flesh and consume her with fire. (Rev 17:3, 16)

The “harlot” rides upon the beast… but is hated by it. So we see is that the beast is using the harlot. How? As I explained in Mystery Babylon: to create “enlightened democracies” that are essentially subject to the harlot who is their “mother.” Indeed, time and again we have seen how America has entered other countries or supplied “rebels” with weapons to overthrow the government, only for these destabilized countries to become dependent upon foreign banks and corporations whose leaders are often the very men who comprise these secret societies. Note how foreign aid is often contingent upon these countries eliminating laws against abortion, contraception, and homosexuality. Thus, the spread of “democracy” today has become equivalent with the spread of pornography, drugs, and morally bankrupt media and entertainment. That is the tragic role of the “harlot” who is mother “of the abominations of the earth.” [3]Rev 17:5

Still, the harlot herself is subject to the beast who has the power to destroy her. Recall again the words of President Woodrow Wilson describing the beast:

Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it. —President Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom, Ch. 1

Indeed, it was the Federal Reserve Act, rushed to Wilson in the middle of the night on December 23rd, 1913, and passed into law (when many elected officials had left Washington for Christmas) that resulted in the entire U.S. Monetary system being handed over to International Bankers. The Federal Reserve (many Americans do not realize) is a private entity. [4]cf. “She Shall Crush Thy Head” by Stephen Mahowald, p. 113

The beast and the ten horns hate the harlot precisely because the freedom and liberty of the harlot is the antithesis of their goal—world domination. Who today can argue that the very freedoms the Western world has enjoyed has also, through abuse and manipulation of them, led many into slavery, both spiritually and economically? That, has been precisely the point.

Did not Pope Benedict, in fact, warn of the collapse of “Babylon” when he became Pope?

…the threat of judgment also concerns us, the Church in Europe, Europe and the West in general. With this Gospel, the Lord is also crying out to our ears the words that in the Book of Revelation he addresses to the Church of Ephesus: “If you do not repent I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.” Light can also be taken away from us and we do well to let this warning ring out with its full seriousness in our hearts, while crying to the Lord: “Help us to repent!…”POPE BENEDICT XVI, Opening Homily, Synod of Bishops, October 2nd, 2005, Rome.



Indeed, the harlot is merely being used by the beast to advance its cause: to draw “the entire order” of men into the wicked theories of “Socialism and Communism.” How can America, the greatest military power on earth, be destroyed? From the inside out: by spreading the errors that were implemented in Russia, namely atheism, Marxism, Darwinism, and materialism. These have spawned further “isms” such as radical feminism, scientism, rationalism etc. that have successfully eroded not only the moral but social foundations of the West. Remarkably, since this was written, socialist and communistic ideas are gaining traction among the brainwashed youth of North America as politicians now openly promote these political alternatives (see When Communism Returns).  

No wonder the popes were warning, in the strongest language possible, of the dangers they saw in the application of the errant philosophies of those secret societies.

…the atheistic movements… had their origin in that school of philosophy which for centuries had sought to divorce science from the life of the Faith and of the Church. —POPE PIUS XI, Divini Redemptoris: On Atheistic Communism, n. 4

Indeed, Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen, in one of his early broadcasts, notes that Communism is actually a child of the West, of the “Enlightenment” that was spawned and fostered by the founders of modern Freemasonry: [5]cf. Mystery Babylon

There is not a single philosophical idea in Communism that did not come from the West. It’s philosophy came from Germany, its sociology from France, its economics from England. And what Russia gave it was an asiatic soul and power and face. —”Communism in America”, cf.

Few realize that Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Karl Marx, who wrote the Communist Manifesto, were on the payroll of the Illuminati. [6]cf. “She Shall Crush Thy Head”  by Stephen Mahowald, p. 100; 123. nb. The Order of the Illuminati are a secret society. A German poet and journalist and friend of Marx, Heinrich Heine, wrote this in 1840, seventy-seven years before Lenin stormed Moscow: ‘The shadowy creatures, the nameless monsters to whom the future belongs, Communism is the secret name of this tremendous adversary.’

Thus Communism, which so many believed to be an invention of Marx, had been fully hatched in the mind of the Illuminists long before he was put on the payroll. —Stephen Mahowald, She Shall Crush Thy Head, p. 101

Essentially, Russia and its people were usurped by those…

…authors and abettors who considered Russia the best-prepared field for experimenting with a plan elaborated decades ago, and who from there continue to spread it from one end of the world to the other. —POPE PIUS XI, Divini Redemptoris, n. 24;

Many today believe that with the fall of the Berlin Wall and dissolution of the U.S.S.R. that Communism died, or at least, merely continued on in more benign forms. [7]Though the killing of 45-60 million Chinese under Communist leader Mao Zedong into the early 1960’s is hardly benign, as well as the growing persecution today of Christians there and increasingly invasive control of the populace. But this is not true. Communism has not died, but rather, changed masks. In fact, the “collapse” of the Soviet Union was allegedly planned years in advance.

Anatoliy Golitsyn, a KGB defector from the U.S.S.R., revealed in 1984 “with 94% accuracy” the events that would follow with changes to the Communist Bloc, the reunification of Germany, etc. with the aim of a New World Social Order controlled by Russia and China. The changes were touted by Michel Gorbachev, then leader of the Soviet Union, as a “perestroika”, which means “restructuring.”

Golitsyn provides irrefutable proof that perestroika or restructuring is not a 1985 Gorbachev invention, but the final phase of a plan formulated during 1958-1960. —”Communism Alive and Menacing, KGB Defector Claims”, a commentary by Cornelia R. Ferreira on Golitsyn’s book, The Perestroika Deception

Indeed, Gorbachev himself was on record speaking before the Soviet Politburo (policy-making committee of the Communist party) in 1987 saying:

Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep. —from Agenda: the Grinding Down of America, documentary by Idaho Legislator Curtis Bowers;

Part of the ploy was to lure that portion of America that was not only patriotic, but moral, into a slumber that only corruption can bring about, and through her, spread this corruption and hence chaos throughout the world, preparing the soil for a utopian savior: Communism. As Antonio Gramsci (1891 – 1937), who founded the Italian Communist Party, said: “We’re going to turn their music, art, and literature against them.” [8]from Agenda: the Grinding Down of America, documentary by Idaho Legislator Curtis Bowers; That stunning prediction has come true exactly as planned. Indeed, former FBI agent, Cleon Skousen, revealed in shocking detail forty-five Communist goals in his 1958 book, The Naked Communist. [9]cb. As you read a few of them, see for yourself how successful this odious plan has been. For these goals were conceived well over five decades ago:

#17 Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

#28 Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

#31 Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history…

#29 Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

#16 Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

#40 Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity, masturbation and easy divorce.

#24 Eliminate all laws governing obscenty by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

#25 Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

#26 Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

#20, 21 Infiltrate the press. Gain control of key positions in radio, tv, and motion pictures.

#27 Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the bible.

#41 Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.

All of this has been accommodated and actively promoted by the media who practically act as the image of the beast:

There is another explanation for the rapid diffusion of the Communistic ideas now seeping into every nation, great and small, advanced and backward, so that no corner of the earth is free from them. This explanation is to be found in a propaganda so truly diabolical that the world has perhaps never witnessed its like before. It is directed from one common center. —POPE PIUS XI, Divini Redemptoris: On Atheistic Communism, n. 17

The advance of these ideas was abetted, the Pope said, by a ‘conspiracy of silence on the part of a large section of the non-Catholic press of the world. We say conspiracy, because it is impossible otherwise to explain how a press usually so eager to exploit even the little daily incidents of life has been able to remain silent for so long’ on the horrors produced by Communism. [10]cf. Ibid. n. 18 This was apparently confirmed by American banker, David Rockefeller:

We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries. —David Rockefeller, Speaking at the June, 1991 Bilderberger meeting in Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton and by Dan Quayle)

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen could not have summarized it better in his prophetic words that were broadcast around the same time that these Communist goals were exposed:

Communism, then, is coming back again on the Western world, because something died in the Western world—namely the strong faith of men in the God that made them. — “Communism in America”, cf.

Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great. She has become a haunt for demons. She is a cage for every unclean spirit, a cage for every unclean bird, [a cage for every unclean] and disgusting [beast]. For all the nations have drunk the wine of her licentious passion. The kings of the earth had intercourse with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her drive for luxury. (Rev 18:3)



I have no doubt that, for some of my readers, this information is overwhelming and seemingly too fantastical to be true. Yet, the attempt of Satan to establish a world-wide power is biblical and clearly unfolding before our very eyes. I have to agree with American Catholic author Stephen Mahowald:

America has been converted—she gave up, without even a fight, just as Gramsci’s plan said she would. —She Shall Crush Thy Head, Stephen Mahowald, p. 126

What remains is for the collapse of “Mystery Babylon” so that she will not stand in the way of global domination. That time, brothers and sisters, appears to be here. The “mother of harlots” has accomplished everything and more that the beast desired. The “inside” information coming out of the United States right now, including that from former four-star generals, is that over the next few years, the collapse of the financial system [11]cf. The Collapse of America and the New Persecution and 2014 and the Rising Beast is imminent, even though things appear to be booming (like just before the collapse in the 1920’s, I might add). [12]cf. TruNews broadcast, July 24th, 2014; Remarkably, at the time of this writing, U.S. military leadership is being dismissed or “retired” at a rapid rate and the Army is being reduced to a size smaller than before WWII. [13]Reuters, Feb. 24th, 2014; An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress says that, already, reduction in the military by President Obama has left America too weak to counter global threats. [14]cf. Washington Tomes, July 31, 2014; Furthermore, who can explain what appears to be the intentional dissolution of American (and European) borders as thousands of “refugees” flood into the country? It all appears, say many observers, to be a deliberate destabilization of the country.

Mercy is fluid, and God has been known to change timelines as He pleases. The main point here is that we are being called to prepare, which includes above all withdrawing oneself from Babylon:

Depart from her, my people, so as not to take part in her sins and receive a share in her plagues, for her sins are piled up to the sky, and God remembers her crimes. (Rev 18:4-5)



Brothers and sisters, we have to understand that, despite the actions and evil intent of those wicked men behind the scenes whom Pius XI called “occult forces,” [15]Divini Redemptoris: On Atheistic Communism, n. 18 the “plan” for worldwide Communism is at its root satanic. In fact, Karl Marx was not himself an atheist: he was a satanist, as are those in the highest levels of Freemasonry. The goal is clearly stated in the Book of Revelation:

Fascinated, the whole world followed after the beast. They worshiped the dragon because it gave its authority to the beast; they also worshiped the beast and said, “Who can compare with the beast or who can fight against it?” (Rev 13:3-4)

Satan, in his hatred of God, wants to be worshiped in His stead. As such, that fallen angel, Lucifer, has waited millennia to fully implement his plan, insofar as God permits. For as St. Thomas Aquinas said in somewhat comforting words:

Even the demons are checked by good angels lest they harm as much as they would. In like manner, Antichrist will not do as much harm as he would wish. —St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Part I, Q.113, Art. 4

The final obstacle to Satan’s plan is not America. It is the Catholic Church. Hence, the powerful and repeated condemnations of the Supreme Pontiffs against this insidious “cancer” of Communism, which is coming about in this present Global Revolution by means of the Seven Seals of Revolution.

This modern revolution, it may be said, has actually broken out or threatens everywhere, and it exceeds in amplitude and violence anything yet experienced in the preceding persecutions launched against the Church. Entire peoples find themselves in danger of falling back into a barbarism worse than that which oppressed the greater part of the world at the coming of the Redeemer. —POPE PIUS XI, Divini Redemptoris: On Atheistic Communism, n. 2

Who can argue with that prophecy as politically motivated violence, genocides, racial tensions, and brutal Islamic violence frequently occupy the headlines? Most notably is the persecution of Christians in the Middle East surpassing, according to one bishop, the persecution of Christianity under Nero. What is most evil is that many of these “rebels” and “extremists” who are perpetrating this bloody violence have been directly armed or funded by America and/or her allies. [16]cf. “ISIS: Made in America”, June 18th, 2014;; cf. Hence, the words of St. John attributed to Mystery Babylon take on a haunting new light as the beheadings, torture and ethnic cleansing of Christians from the Middle East continues—aided by covert American operations.

In her was found the blood of prophets and holy ones and all who have been slain on the earth. (Rev 18:24)

We are living in apocalyptic times, according to the pontiffs.[17]cf. Why Aren’t the Popes Shouting? Pope Pius wrote that, ‘For the first time in history, we are witnessing a struggle, cold-blooded in purpose and mapped out to the least detail, between man and “all that is called God.”‘ [18]Divini Redemptoris: On Atheistic Communism, n. 22  St. John Paul II gave this conspiracy its locus:

We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine Providence; it is a trial which the whole Church, and the Polish Church in particular, must take up. It is a trial of not only our nation and the Church, but in a sense a test of 2,000 years of culture and Christian civilization, with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations. —Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (JOHN PAUL II ), at the Eucharistic Congress, Philadelphia, PA for the bicentennial celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence; some citations of this passage include the words “Christ and the antichrist” as above. Deacon Keith Fournier, an attendee, reports it as above; cf. Catholic Online; August 13, 1976

But in all of this, Jesus stands calmly amidst the great winds and waves of this Storm, and says:

Why are you terrified, O you of little faith? (Matt 8:26)

Jesus, not Satan, is the master of every storm. To those who welcome Him in their “boat” and place their trust in Him, He says:

I will keep you safe in the time of trial that is going to come to the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. (Rev 3:10)
