Welcome back to occult symbolism in pop culture. I’m your host, Isaac Weishaupt of the day we’re starting a two part journey. You know you love the multiple part shows? Well, when you see the multiple parts, you know, it’s a deep dive. All right. And today we’re gonna talk about Starbucks. The occult symbolism of the Starbucks logo to be specific, is it illuminate? Confirm, we’re gonna find out. Is Starbucks doing witchcraft rituals? Is it just QA non nonsense? Will there be handjobs at Starbucks in the future? Find out today and part one. Did you Did you listen, my Idiocracy film analysis I did. A year ago, I guess it was something like that. If you did you get that joke. If you didn’t, I advise you to listen to that episode. We’re going to explore today some claims that Starbucks is run by a coven of witches from the QA Nan pastor, and we’re gonna dive deep into the realm of the occult. All right, we’re gonna explore one of their gods Abraxis. You may have heard this name. It’s chicken head snake God is Sam Tripoli, put it on tinfoil hat. But we’re going to we’re going to dig deep into Abraxis. Then in part two, we’re going to be determined when that releases, I got to put some finishing touches on some research rabbit hole, you could say this was going to be a one part deal. But then I went down a rabbit hole and the rabbit hole was widening. Because in part two of the logo conspiracy for Starbucks, we’re gonna get right back to the source, we’re going to look at the claims presented by the guys who created the logo. We’re gonna look at some Norse wood cuts. Some depictions of mermaids and and what he calls sirens. There’s a character named mellow Sina, who it seems, in my research is not completely it links us to witchcraft, selling souls to the devil and all these things. So that’s going to be part two. So first, part one, let’s get into this. Where what was the inspiration for this, this show? Well, it’s the Starbucks logo appears oftentimes, when you’re researching symbolism of the occult and the Illuminati, right corporate logos. And I’ve always been curious about it. I’ve always been curious, and I’ve always wanted to dig deep into this. definitively say, that’s what this is. Okay. And I’m gonna I’m gonna be honest with you so far. And I’m not done with my part two quite yet, but so far, it seems that it’s going to be inconclusive. But let’s talk about a viral video going around on tick tock, which is someone sent it to me and I said, oh, boy, here we go. And I thought, You know what, why don’t I do a show about this? Why don’t I get off my snarky eye roll in ass and look into some of these claims? I’m going to play the clip. This is a pastor. I don’t know what channel it came off of. It’s viral. So who knows? Let’s take a listen.
Speaker 1 3:46
So from this day moving forward, okay. In our office on this campus, but especially in this tent, I do not want anything that carries the Starbucks logo on this church property. You hear me? That is Lilith 1,000%. I’ve studied it. It is a demon. It is sexual deviance I am done with star I’ve been done with Starbucks for a long time. It’s communist coffee anyhow. You can look you can go and drink a gallon of Starbucks today. That’s fine. Don’t you bring in cups in this room? If I see it, I’m gonna tell you to take it out. Hear me? I’m telling you. That company is not only one of the most godless companies on the planet. They are full blown 1,000% a witch’s coven. I promise you it’s the facts. I state my wife only at Starbucks is way extract. So
Isaac Weishaupt 5:01
what are the claims being made here? By this pastor? He says that Lilith is the character on the star bees logo. 1,000% That’s very that’s 10 times the normal amount of assuredness. You know, 100% is all the assuredness one could have well he’s got 10 times that so are you to judge she’s a demon a sexual deviant. Well, is it Lilith? Is the logo Lilith? No, absolutely not. I couldn’t find that anywhere. But this pastor might not be entirely off base with claims that it is a sexually deviant demon, and I will get into that. Then, what else does he say? So Starbucks is communist? Well, that’s shocking. I looked it up. I looked it up is Starbucks communist? Because you could have fooled me. But I didn’t know a private Corp or not a private corporation, but a free market corporation could in fact, be communist, with no government involvement. But hey, maybe I’m wrong. So I look it up. Turns out, they’re building Starbucks’s in China, Communist China. So what’s up with that? Well, I went to this website and they quote, NPR, says by 2005, the government allowed Starbucks to open a store on the Great Wall. NPR asked Schultz. Howard Schultz, he was the former CEO MPRs Schultz at the time, how do you do business in a communist dictatorship without losing your soul? He responded that the communists actually wanted Starbucks to succeed, because Starbucks proved it could be very respectful of the heritage and the tradition of how that country was built. But as a communist seems, seems cozy with the Chinese, but you know what, there’s a lot of companies that are cozy with the Chinese. We’ve got a lot of unloading. This gets into geopolitics. I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about. But I’m gonna guess that we owe a fair amount of money to China for a variety of things. I know that I saw John Cena apologizing to China for something. But is Starbucks communist? Well, communism is a political theory by Karl Marx, that advocates for all property being public owned. The government is the public, right? The government owns all things land factories, businesses. Okay. So is Starbucks, which is a business owned by the government. That’s what this pastor says. And I looked it up. And shockingly enough, the US government does not own Starbucks. Yes, that’s true. So he’s wrong. They have a CEO who makes a grip of money. And the owners, they are what’s called shareholders. Okay. So it turns out this is wrong. This is capitalism. Turns out we live in a capitalist country. And there’s not one communist company that the government Well, I mean, you could argue that I guess you could argue because look, the government owns your land. We’re already there, buddy. You don’t think they own your land? Don’t pay your property taxes one year and see what happens. It’s all illusion. You don’t own your land. You don’t own your home. Things you own end up owning you. Okay, moving on. Starbucks is godless, godless. Well, I don’t know how to prove or disprove that but the CEO is now is a guy named Laxman. Nora see Nan Norris, Nora Seaman and appears that he is Hindu. They have many gods it’s actually the opposite of godless they’ve got a lot of gods, don’t they? And the last year was Howard Schultz, who I believe is Jewish. And even if you believe that the logo is of Starbucks is a demon. Even that’s not godless. Because godless means that atheism and it’s just saying that one prefers if it’s a demon was just saying that one prefers to worship Satan over God. So God still is included in that system. So he is wrong yet again. He then says Starbucks is actually a coven of witches. He promises this he promises that he staked his life on it I’d like to see him prove and cash that went in. Well, I went to a download of the Board of Directors that’s who runs Starbucks you can find the PDF online and in their bios, it says nothing about them being witches or in Wicca now that doesn’t mean that they’re not in private doing that. But I would like to see the evidence but as always these kinds of personalities just diarrhea of the mouth with no proof whatsoever. Okay. He also claims there’ll be no Starbucks on his church’s property. I believe this one I do, I believe I’d be curious to see someone try to take a cup in there. Because you know, this guy’s going to tell some cameraman lackey around them or get your phone, watch this, put this on the TIC tock. And he’s gonna make the person feel you know, this small and the devil worshiper. You know, to make a point. Now, who is this guy? Of course, we know who it is. It’s Pastor Greg Locke. That’s right. A pastor affiliated with the Q movement, the moment that destroyed my precious conspiracy theory realm. You already know my opinion on it. I will not harp on it because I know some people are really into Q and and they get mad when I tell them that they’re wrong. That’s okay. We all have different opinions. You can believe I’m wrong and that’s okay. But much like everything que says he said a bunch of things with zero proof. And when you dig into it seems like it’s all entirely wrong. So what do you think that does to every conspiracy? Now, everyone in the country associates conspiracy theories with QA Nan, and I think that was all propaganda disinformation, a psyop, if you will, done on purpose. Of course, they want you to think, oh, here goes another crazy conspiracy. Oh, really? The coffee’s got witchcraft in it. Woohoo. That’s what they want. You think? And this is what happens. And Case in point, you can see Tiktok videos of people stitching this original video and sort of mocking it making fun of it because they should because it’s, it’s stupid. It’s not stupid. I should take that back. He doesn’t eat. He packages it in a way where he’s just using emotion because that’s lazy. He’d rather use emotion instead of facts and evidence, which is what a lot of people do. And who am I to judge right? He’s got about 200,000 more followers than I do. He’s making a hell of a lot more money than I do. So who’s laughing now? Right? Who’s the idiot now? I’m just saying. You got to watch who you’re listening to these people are they’re stealing your loose, as they say, as Sam would say. They’re still in the loose. Their mate. He’s pushing divisiveness. I’ve heard many of his rants, in passing here and there. He’s very homophobic, which I don’t like. I know he, whatever. But you know, I’ve ever read his books. I’ve never actually listened to an entire sermon. Maybe he’s a great guy. I do like as passionate as charisma. I do like that. I just don’t agree with him. But he does this thing called the reawaken America tour. And which I think is funny because they hate woke. They hate that term woke so much. And to reawaken is basically another form of the word woke. But it’s in the reawaken towards basically the cue a non road tour started out by Michael Flynn and some other guys I don’t even know who these people are. But you’ll notice there’s a there’s a general theme running through and it’s a lot of lot of things okay, I’m not going to pick on cue too much today. Because you know, I got QR me folks that listen, I know it because I’ve read the comments, and that’s okay. I’m not trying to I’m not trying to be mean about things.
I can’t sit over here and say they’re divisive and unlikable, and then me then I’m a meanie, too. No, I’m not gonna be mean, it’s fine. They their beliefs, I just don’t agree with them. I just think it’s controlled SIOP. I mean, when when the face of their movement is all over the news, talked about how JFK Jr. is alive, and he’s coming back and he’s gonna put Trump in and start the tribunals. And we’ve got the Days of Darkness, I’m still waiting on the 10 days of darkness. This thing, all the work and I don’t know, it’s all a bunch of nonsense, you’re being lied to. You’re being lied to. I don’t know how to wake people up to that. Every time I say stuff like this, I lose people. I lose followers, and that’s okay, then you’re not my people, I need people who can not be manipulated, right? This is a different kind of show. This is a show where we try to factually connect things. I’m not going to sit here, you know what I mean? I spent hours and hours researching and trying to present links and evidence and proof. And these guys just appeal to emotion and fears. But there’s a cost to that they are selling their souls to the devil. That’s what they’re doing. By pushing fear and hatred for one another. And what and what is the end result for them? Why do they do that? Is to collect your money and steal your loot in the process. It’s why they do it. It doesn’t do it doesn’t make the world a better place. And they’re just they’re being gross with stuff like this. Not every one of them right? If you look at the reawakened toward speaker list, that’s a big list. I’m sure not every one of them is. I don’t know what do I know. But anyway, my point is, is well, I’ll wrap the QA non lecture up with take note as to how a video like this can go viral. And no one removes it. No one takes it down. Yet if you have a reasonable conspiracy, the social medias and the platforms they take it down. There’s something going on there. And it’s pretty clear to me. Let’s talk about the logo. Let’s talk about the logo for Starbucks, you know, you’ve seen it right? The green fish lady with the crown? Well, the first place I want to look at real quick is the fish God theory. I talked about this in the dark path. I said we talked about the theory of evolution according to the the occultist and it was claimed that Darwin’s theory of evolution supported a an occult knowledge of plant evolving into fish in the fish evolving into man. Because there’s always tales of fish gods and hermaphrodites when you consider the Babylonian myth of Oh, Ana’s the fish God that gave wisdom to mankind. And it looks like a fish God on the Starbucks logo. So I’m going to plant that seed and we’ll come all the way back around by the end of part two, because the fish, the fish reptile or the amphibious fish God, kind of as a theme her but another main theory presented is that the Starbucks logo is actually Abraxis Okay, so I want to deep dive into Abraxis. Today in Part One, the Abraxis is the supreme god of Gnosticism. What in terms of when you say God in Gnosticism we’re referring to the grand creator in the Pleroma that’s the outer heavenly sphere that they think is where the real God exists. And from this Pleroma all the columns sees these pairs of opposing polarities, well, one of them accidentally had an oopsie and created a an unperfect an unbonded male polarity named the Demiurge because you know everything has to have perfect pairs so I believe it was Sophia is the part of the CG pair and she was like, I gotta get this thing out of here so Sophia kicks the damage here the say the damage to me it’s called the yelled at both kicks the yell to both outside of the Pleroma like get out of here. I don’t want I don’t want the big God to see you. Well, the out of both gets kicked out. And it’s like, last orphan and thanks God, I remember being up in that playroom. It was such a nice place. I wanted to make my own world. And I’m gonna force everyone to worship me. So the out of both creates the world that we live in today as a slave system to worship Him. And that’s what the Gnostics believe. That’s why they don’t believe in Jesus Christ as the Holy Trinity. They believe that we need to crack the shell and get back out to the Pleroma, which is where Abraxis exists as the supreme god. In a way, the Abraxis stuff is a little shaky, but that’s my take on they just say he’s the supreme god. If you go to Helena Blavatsky is The Secret Doctrine. She describes it as such, but who was Abraxis the numerical or cabbalistic value of the name Abraxis directly refers to the Persian title of the god Mithra. Ruler of the year worship from the earliest times under the appellation of IO. Thus the sun in one aspect, the moon or lunar genius and another, the generative dadey, whom the Gnostics saluted as now that presided over the mysteries of the Father and the Son who shine who’s shines just in the nighttime, holding the second rank, the First Lord of Death. Still a little fuzzy, though, right. But to see the God of Mithras is interesting if you’ve listened to had three, three episode deep dive into the raised by wolves show on HBO, which I think they removed from their streaming services that and Westworld, which is very interesting that it would remove those two things, right? Because Westworld shows us the AI evolution and raised by wolves shows us the occult doctrine. Going back to the origins of Rome, with Mithras, right. So let’s go over to William Wescot numbers and they’re called bat occult power and mystic values. He describes Abraxis as a Gnostic talismanic word. What does that mean? Is it a talisman? Talisman is an object that is thought to have magical powers if you go to so that’s all the that book says about Abraxis. So once on one level, it’s a god on one level, it’s a magical word. And then if you go to Elvis Levy’s transcendental magic translation book, it says, the study of talismans and pentacles is one of the most curious branches of magic. It connects with historical new numismatics. There are Indian Egyptian and Greek talismans. cabbalistic metals coming from ancient and modern Jews, Gnostic Abraxas occult tow tokens in use among members of secret societies and sometimes called counters of the Sabbath. So again, there’s another example of Abraxis being a magical word. So apparently, Abraxis has magical powers utilized by secret societies. And using his name has magical value because he is the name of God. Then you go over to Manley P Hall, and in his massive book, The Secret Teachings of All Ages. There’s a section the ancient mysteries and secret societies part two, he’s talking about how Gnostics were suppressed by the early Christian church, right because a lot of these occultist they’re very sympathetic towards the Gnostics because that’s, of course, part of their belief system is Gnosticism the hidden truth that the God we worship is an oppressor slave master God. He says the members of the Order claimed to be familiar with the secret doctrines of early Christianity. Talk about the Gnostics right. They interpreted the Christian mysteries according to pagan symbolism, their secret information and philosophic tenants, they conceal from the profane and taught to a small group only of especially initiated persons. So again, more ideas of secret societies being plugged into this power of the name Abraxis.
And then later on, he he talks about trying to determine who started Gnosticism and And he divides it up into two different sects, the Syrian call and the Alexandrian cult. And he talks about a character named boss LEDs. He says the Alexandrian boss LEDs inculcated Egyptian hermeticism oriental occultism Chaldean astrology and Persian philosophy in his followers and in his doctrine sought to unite the schools of early Christianity with the ancient pagan mysteries to him as a tribute to the formulation of that particular concept of the Deity which carries his name of Abraxis. In discussing the original meaning of this word, Godfrey Higgins in his Celtic druids, has demonstrated that the numerological powers of the letters forming the word Abraxis, when added together result in the sum of 365. The same author also notes that the name Mithras, when treated in a similar manner has the same numerical value. So maybe that’s the link bill that he was looking at. Or maybe it has the same power, maybe it’s both the name of God. bacilli these caught, the powers of the universe were divided into 365, a eons or spiritual cycles. Now the sum of all these together was the Supreme Father and to him he gave the capitalistic Appalachian Abraxis as being symbolical numerologically of His divine powers, attributes and emanations. So there you go, it is the power of God through the spoken word. I feel like Manley P Hall describes this more eloquently than the sort of in passing statements. Abraxis is usually symbolized as a composite creature with the body of a human being, and the head of a rooster, and with each of his legs ending in a serpent. CW king in his Gnostics and their remains, gives the following concise description of the Gnostic philosophy of Bossa ladies quoting from the writings of the early Christian bishop and martyr St. Irenaeus. Because St. St. Arrhenius was From what I recall the guy who the early Christian church was assigned to suppress suppressing Gnostic thought because there was a competing, competing ideas of what Christianity was and what Jesus Christ’s appearance was all about. The Gnostics were obviously of the occult pagan variety, and they said, Oh, yeah, this fits into our worldview. And then St. Paul’s Church was like, No, that’s not what this is. And you know, that’s one Okay, so this book gives a description of basally these Gnostic philosophy, okay. He asserted that God the uncreated Eternal Father had first brought forth news or mind, this, the logos word, this again for Nessus intelligence. From from nessa sprung Sophia wisdom and Dynamis strength. Sita we came describes Abraxis as Bellarmine considers the composite image and ascribe to the actual name Abraxas to be agnostic pantheous representing the Supreme Being with the five emanations marked out by propriate symbols. From the human body, the usual form is signed to the day the springs to supporters, news and logos expressed in the serpents, symbols of their inner senses and the quickening, understanding on which account the Greeks had made the serpent, the attribute of palace, his head that of a cock represents fro nesis the, that bird being the emblem of foresight and vigilance, his two arms hold the symbols of Sophia and Dynamis, the shield of wisdom and the whip of power. Okay, so lots of symbolism loaded into the image. And the whole reason he talked about 365 is because they’re talking about 360 degrees, which is a perfect circle, with five left over, and the Abraxis has five different body parts, right. And 360s, the circle of the year. And each of the sort of deities composed is like a transformer like, what’s that transformer when they build up? Like a Voltron or something right. Abraxis is the Voltron of the occult. And each one of the little mini Voltron that symbols to make the big one is 1/5 of the power right which 1/5 is third 360 72 which is one of the most sacred numbers in the Old Testament and their Kabbalah system. Now Irenaeus explained it as thus, according to Wikipedia, which links to a reference that I cannot confirm I assume this is true. Newest produce logos logos produce furnaces for nieces produce Sophia Dynamis, Sophia and dynamics produced principalities, powers, angels and the last of whom create the first heaven. So again, the idea of like multiple deities sort of Voltron up together. But the numerology aspect is important here because, you know, like I said, the 360 divided by the five parts gives us 72 It’s a magical spell, in terms of Kabbalah comes from Moses, who is believed to be a magician, by the catalyst which, if I recall the stories of Moses doing magical battles with Egypt was a thing right? I’m gonna read you from kabbalah.com The ancient capitalist Rav Shimon Bar yo, yo Kai wrote in the zohore, that it was Moses, not God who parted the Red Sea, allowing the Israelites to narrowly escaped Pharaoh and the Egyptian army. In order to accomplish this miracle, Moses combined the power of certainty, with a very powerful spiritual technology, he had possession of a formula that literally gave him access to the subatomic realm of nature. The formula Moses used to overcome the laws of nature has been hidden in the Zohar for 2000 years. The formula is called the 72 names of God, which didn’t area Ariana little little No, Ariana Grande, didn’t she get a, a terrible impersonation? Didn’t she get a tattoo on her finger of the 7272 names of gods and she’s in the Kabbalah too. Miki readin says not named like Betty, Bill and Barbara, but rather 72 sequences composed of Hebrew letters that have the extraordinary power to overcome the laws of nature at all forms, including human nature. Though this formula is encoded in the literal biblical story of the parting of the Red Sea, no rabbi, scholar or priest was aware of the secret, it was known only to a handful of capitalists, who also knew that when the time was right, the formula would be revealed to the world. And then talks about how you’re the science of how this works. You’re like a tuning frequencies with your, the way you talk, right? So it seems, and I don’t understand this all very well. But Abraxis is a bit of a talisman of magic. And he’s symbolized as multiple gods as the magical spells as the 72 names of God and Kabbalah. So Abraxis is, but the Catholics consider him a pagan demon, which makes sense, since the early church was very much trying to shut down Gnosticism as a heresy. Aleister Crowley evokes the name of Abraxis in the Gnostic mass of 1913, which makes sense because he was in the Gnosticism Carl Jung called Abraxis a God in his book seven servings of the dead, which makes sense because he is Gnostic. I read an article by Edie heard from 2009 called called Young and the Gnostic reconciliation of gender opposites. And it says this, after being haunted by ghosts, Young wrote his seven sermons to the dead book in 1917. Is not the year currently channeled lamb by the way, I think it was 1919 Could be wrong. In the seven messages young reveals in agreement with a second century Gnostic writer bass LEDs, that the true and ultimate god is Abraxis who combines Jesus and Satan, good and evil, all in one. This is why young held that light is followed by the shadow the other side of the Creator. Now that sounds very much like the Baphomet which is also a symbol that was worshipped by the Knights Templar. And if you go into that seven sermons book, this is what he says bah bah bah, a representation of the driving force of individuation, referred with the figures for the driving forces of differentiation.
Helios God the Son and the devil. There’s a God about whom you know nothing Because men have forgotten him, we call him by his name Abraxis. He is less definite than God or devil. Abraxis is activity nothing can resist him but the unreal. Abraxis stands above the sun god and above the devil. If the Pleroma were capable of having a been a being Abraxis would be its manifestation. So again, this the real God is Abraxis they worship him like a god, anyone. These Gnostic folks, he’s a cultist. So it is alarming to see the Starbucks logo being compared to Abraxis the God of the occult. And you see, to be fair, let’s wrap it up a little pop culture talk. Recall we did some episodes exploring Duncan Trussell is midnight gospel on Netflix. Do you remember the device the main character uses to traverse different worlds. It was called a praxis and it looks just like the chicken headed snake God. It also appears in in a film called Mandy It’s a horror film with Nick Cage. And there’s a horn of Abraxis which has themes of cults doing blood sacrifices to the devil. psychedelics. It’s actually a really great movie if you like horror movies. Highly recommend. We talked about Abraxis in my book conspiracy theories and unpopular culture. I cited this coming from Robert Solomon’s book cinema symbolism too. So I want to make sure I relay that here too. Because in Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, his grandfather is named Abraxis Malfoy. And see, oh, in the book, I said this Abraxas data is not only on the Starbucks logo. I don’t know if that’s true. But also in Carl Jung teachings of differentiation and individuation processes the Harry Potter goes through. Now, is there a magical link here? If you go to Text Mars’s book, Codex Magica. He tells us that Abraxis links in fact into witchcraft and magic. So going back to pastor Greg Locke with the witchcraft talk. I’m like, I don’t know maybe, maybe. And Tex Maher says the magical word abracadabra comes from the worship of the Gnostic God Abraxis it literally means the dead body or corpse of Abraxis. And also, in Secret Teachings of All Ages, this claim about abracadabra coming from Abraxis is also stated. It came from our Mackey’s books, apparently. So there you go a whole bunch on Abraxis. He’s basically the God of the occult. All right. But is that what’s on the logo? I would argue no, it is not. That logo if if the Starbucks logo had a chicken head on it. I got a project Pat fans out there. If it’s got the chicken head on it, then maybe we got something but I don’t think we do. I think we gotta go deeper into some other ideas. And that’s what we’re gonna do in part two. Come back. I’m going to finish I’m going to put some finishing touches on this, this rabbit hole of Mello Cena that I’m in, and we’re gonna talk about the logo, we’re going to talk about, we’re going to hear what the actual people who made this logo what they said it was. We’re gonna look at some ideas of Norse woodcuts, mermaid sirens, and mellow Xena, and I’m going to, I’m going to connect it on to witchcraft and selling your soul to the devil. So there you go. Who lot is very dense today, right? It was a dense topic. Next time won’t be quite as dense. But we are going deeper into this because there’s a lot more to it. I mean, it’s the world’s most recognizable coffee brand. We should take some little bit of time on it, don’t you think? I want to thank you for listening to the show.
