Explained in the decoding the hive handbook series is the fact that Benjamin Franklin was a double agent of the Crown who not only was a master Freemason, but a sitting member of the Royal Society of London (the intelligence arm of the Freemasons) at the same time he negotiated the surrender of the United Colonies of America to King George, signing the Treaty at Versailles July 16, 1782, Treaty of Peace 8 Stat 80 and the Treaty of Paris of 1783 which were both lease agreements stating nothing of surrender by Great Britain or of succession from the Crown.
This is documented, historical fact, not theory. There is no such document that outlined the succession of the USA from anywhere ever signed by King George.
Everyone signing the Declaration of Independence were all master Freemasons, just like Franklin holding royal positions within the Crown.
