The Illuminati were (or are) a secretive freemason chapter founded by Adam Weishaupt in Ingolstadt in 1776, which certainly had some influence in US history. Many people think they still secretly run the world today (but definitely not from Ingolstadt 🙂
Ingolstadt is also the unofficial chav* capital of Germany, it houses the Bavarian Police Museum, it lies at Danube kilometer 2.460 counted from the river delta in the east, it is the end of the Gunvor oil-pipeline from the east (pictured above), and it is a shit-magnet for east-gothic petty criminals. But that is all another chapter.
(*Chav = questionably dressed young proles, often with migration background, pretending upward mobility by making lots of noise circling the little town square in their semi-muscular vroom vroom cars. The most famous Ingolstadt Chavski being former serial Formula 1 team boss impersonator Kalin Kolasnic aka Dr. Kolles)

Funnily, the AUDI name (meaning: “to listen/hear” in Spanish) is derived from its predecessor car-brand HORCH (meaning: “listen carefully!” in German). A befitting Ingolstadt-coincidence with the Illuminati whose internal structure were said to promote strong spy activity, demanding strict observance of superiors’ orders, and never knowing who exactly rules at the next level of the power pyramid.
Whereas the modern global spy system is called “Five Eyes”, AUDI carries only four in its logo.
And then the occult meaning of SATURN …
(Note: not every resemblance is a planned conspiracy!)
Apparently the Illuminati’s lucky numbers were 2, 3, 5, 23 and 69, based on the Kabala, although I didn’t find that in any written sources, except in “The Illuminatus! Trilogy” whose authors call “23” a “mindfuck” (discordianism) .
Compare this to the kabalistic “9” and “11” which can be found everywhere from B’av Tisha = date of destruction of Solomon’s temple, to the $-note’s snake and two pillars, to Germany’s national date of fate, or the 911 emergency call number, or the 9-11 incident, etc. and it almost seems like “23” was introduced as a distraction strategy.
In any case, our guided tour started from the Ingolstadt Liebfrauen Munster at exactly 23 minutes past 5, lasting 69 minutes with our group comprising 69 paying guests. So many coincidences …
The two guides re-enacted some important parts of history in the middle of Ingolstadt’s medieval town centre which was quite amusing.
Of course there was also some general insight on freemasonry with their well-known symbols and codes …
… and some insight into the Illuminati (the light bearers of the enlightenment – opposed to the dark and oppressive church religion), …
… such as visiting Adam Weishaupt’s former house of his Illuminati reunions … with the 6 six-pointed stars …
… at this befitting adress … Nr. 23 …
… and with an enlightening historic plate (the Illuminati reunion hall became a synagogue):
… and the historic “Hohe Schule”, Ingolstadt’s university founded in 1472, where Weishaupt was a Professor of Law (university later moved to Munich).
In the guided tour there was not much info on the Illuminati’s presence in our daily lives – which does in fact lead some people to believe in an ongoing Illuminati conspiracy.
Here are examples from the internet which anyone can research and analyse:
“Weishaupt founded the Illuminati initially as the “Order of the Perfectibilists” (aka “bee order”) on 1st of May 1776. … His codename was Spartacus, thereby he gave birth to the later communist “Spartakus Bund” and the worker’s revolts and memorials on “Mayday” and the famous slave phrases “I am Spartacus” / “Je suis Charlie”. .. His order builds on older, even more secret orders, such as the Babylonian “Brotherhood of the Snake”, or the Egyptian “Isis-Mysteries”, or the Greek “Eleusis-mysteries”, or the Jewish “Kabala”, or Hassan al-Sabah’s “Assassins”, or the “Knight Templars”, or the “Synagogue of Satan”, or directly on Lucifer or Lilith. … Ill, Ilan, Yilan meaning wicked, lie and snake … In the Edda Ullr means Yr means yew means bow & arrows. … The term “Flower Power” was a secret Illuminati code (“Ewige Blumenkraft”). … He wrote the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”. … He was financed by Mayer Amschel Rothschild. … Theodor Reuss revived the American Illuminati with the “Ordo Templi Orientis”. … Giuseppe Mazzini, Albert Pike, Aleister Crowley and Cecil Rhodes further developed the secret society. … “Skull & Bones” was founded as chapter 322 of the Bavarian Illuminati. …

Now, to the American Dollar, or rather its reverse.
Freemasonic pyramid and the all-seeing Eye of Providence.
MDCCLXXVI = 1776 = Foundation of the Illuminati = US Declaration of Independence.
Novus Ordo Seclorum = New World Order (or new order of the ages).
Annuit Coeptis = May our undertaking be chosen (or other translations).
According to Ayn Rand in “Atlas Shrugged”, the $-note-design goes back to her lover Philipp Rothschild.
Here is another take, by Rabbi Marvin Antelman in “Eliminating the Opiate“:
A particularly spectacular theory says that Adam Weishaupt, after the Illuminati were banned by Bavaria in 1785, didn’t stay in exile in Gotha, but went to found the United States and impersonated George Washington (who is pictured on the one-dollar-bill) as their first president in 1789 …
(Judge the physical resemblance between Washington and Weishaupt for yourself.)
… and – according to that theory – W. chose the white headed (=bald) eagle as the heraldic animal of the United States, and as a secret sign of his real name (Weishaupt = white head).
Winston Churchill in 1920:
“This conspiracy against civilization dates from the days of Weishaupt … as a modern historian Mrs. Webster has so ably shown, it played a recognizable role on the French Revolution.” (Source)
“This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States)… this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.” (Source: The Guardian)
There is another Illuminati animal that appears even more often in a clandestine manner: the owl (Ile or Ull in old German) …
or rather Minerva, the symbolic animal of wisdom (“carrying owls to Athens”), or the direct translation of “Soviet” (= owl = wisdom in Slavic), and it is also an initiation grade within the Illuminati and other freemasonic lodges …
… also seen here at the Bohemian Club’s annual congregation near San Francisco …
…where some famous names (e.g. Reagan and Nixon above, at Owl’s Nest, Bohemian Grove) engage in a strange caustic burning ritual (“The cremation of care”) in front of a sacrificial molech (in owl shape) … and other non-standard activities (at least by non-San-Francisco-standards).
Soviet = Owl in Slavic languages !
The architecture of Washington D.C. is also full of freemasonic symbolism from obelisks to street shapes. The cornerstone under the Washington Memorial Obelisk is (officially!) accompanied with Washington’s personal freemasonic memorabilia. He and most other US presidents actually swore their presidential oath on a freemasonic book of the “St. John’s Lodge Nr. 1”.
And I’ve found the owl in other non-suspecting places, such as the site of Germany’s controversial capitulation in Compiègne in 1918 (negotiations started on 9.11. to be precise).
“I’m not a conspiracy theorist, I’m a conspiracy analyst.” said Gore Vidal “Everything the Bushites touch is screwed up. They could never have pulled off 9/11, even if they wanted to. Even if they longed to. They could step aside, though, or just go out to lunch while these terrible things were happening to the nation. I believe that of them.”
“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.” J. Edgar Hoover
