Mark Stong vs. Lara Roozemond

I just read Mark Strong might play James Bond? Why? He has a look that generates O empathy. How does he do that? I don’t care if he lives or dies! What manner of energy will he generate on the screen? How about……….

“I am a clever psychopath who goes after the bad guys! I ooze out of control testosterone! If there were no bad guys in the world – I would be the bad guy!”

Where’s THE TENSION?

Victoria Bond owns real tension, because she is a Secret Poet, and a violently insane Sculptress. She is also a Dream-Seer, who has visions of the British Fleet – which I just discovered is handicapped! Rolls Royce built new engines that don’t run in warm water, and thus will not be doing a sail-by of those man-made Chinese Islands the French fleet buzzed last week. This is REAL BONDISH! How did Victoria SEE this coming?

What we got here, is, men, and women who can not USE THEIR MIND! Why? The Western Mind is not what it used to be. What happened? Why are we suddenly – FLAWED?

Victoria Bond wonders if it has something to do with Poetic Tension.

“I think we are losing our poetic edge – Gunga Din!”

In my answer poem to Lara Roozemond’s poem ‘Lost’ I mention a flaw I can see. It’s there, at the end. I discovered what I did wrong in my poems when I was fifteen. I released the poetic tension – at the end. My endings were not right. There is no wrong or right in poetry. There is THE LAUNCH………THE TRANCE………THE EXIT.  You do not want the trance part to end – out of trance! You could have gone a thousand ways while in trance. This is the mind-blowing experience of authoring a poem. Intuitively you chose words. TRANCE-WORDS. They come from a place that can not be DEFINED. What a brilliant start to ‘Lost’. Here’s the BAD EXIT…….

“Totally free”

Totally free verses Partially free? Why use the word “free”? Free compared to what?

This is why Plato says good poets have to be mad. There is no cure for poetic madness. This is why Lara is ten times more dangerous then Mark. Lara has poet balls that she keeps in her Crane Bag she does not know she owns. I truly admire her work, and love her. That’s how I want to feel for – THE NEW BOND!

Lara has an enchanted voice. She should send it out, and get work. Christine, Rena, and Lara, have these crystal-delicate song voices. Protecting this voice, rathe than projecting a bold bellow, creates sublime tension.

I Spent My Birthday Alone

I am going around Linda and Heather in my family tree. Heather looks like Rosemary in this photo. I will assign the Hanson women to the evil things that were said about Christine and Rosemary who also tried to UNBORN ME! Patrice replaces me AS THE FATHER, as does Heather. She wants Linda to be progeny of her family tree. She is like Mordred. She is linked to her dead schizophrenic grandmother, Linda’s mother. Rosemary told her children she had a scholarship to Camillo State Hospital.

Here is The Insane Line of Gold-digging Women – who elect me A Comet King…………A Star Child! Was King Arthur a Star Child?

I Am A Comet King

In three hours I will be transformed. I will no longer be able to communicate with you on the level I have, because Earth is overcome with ugly humans who hate beautiful things, and the beautiful people who make these things. This goes for words.

The word comet comes from comb, as in combing ones long hair. Crowns are stars and eclipses of the sun.

Two weeks ago it dawned on me there exist no photo of my mother with her four children. She was not into celebrating our birthdays. My daughter, Heather, was born on Rosemary’s birthday. Her mother and her family kept it a secret for sixteen years that I was a father. They only let me know so ‘Their Gift from God’ could be in Christine Rosamond’s biography, and, become famous, too. It’s amazing how many people believe I am a vile person who deserves what I got. This must be my Karma.

Amy sent me a personal FB message wishing me a Happy Birthday. We have never laid eyes on one another. We met on facebook. I got no call doing the same. I heard no human voice honor the day I was born, until I went to Target to buy a frozen piece of cake, that they did not sell…

I Am a Judaic Prophet

The head of John the Nazarite – speaks to you!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophet

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophet

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophet

I am a Judaic Prophet. The reason I hate my daughter, is, she used my pronouncement “I am a prophet” against me. Bill and her USED this to take my grandson from me, and, hand him over to THREE DRUNKS, Linda, Bill, and Flip, who together wanted to open a bar. Flip was going to get Heather’s career going – alas! Heather told me she would be the house torch singer, while Flip and Bill bartend. They wanted Vicki and I to invest our money we got from Uncle Vinnie.

I had made it clear to Heather and her mother, Christine and my biography was going to be about OUR struggle to get sober. I told them I am a Nazarite, a Biblical person who abstains from alcohol. Patrice brought HER daughter up on Goddess Worship, that includes wiccan stuff. They hate the Bible, the enemy of women. Belle and Alley attacked me for the same reason. They are Wiccan Warriors.

In giving an example of what a Judaic Prophet is, the example of Jeremiah bidding the Rechabites to HAVE A DRINK, is used. They REFUSE, and God commends them.

Linda wanted me to HAVE A DRINK in order to get me out of HER DRUNKEN WAY, so she will own all the Hanson family power. This is – PROPHETIC – as is Snyder and Pierrot stealing my Recovery with the help of the Buck law firm that set up Alcohol Justice.

Heather was like The Last Temptation. Giving her up was the hardest thing I ever did. She said this, with a sharp laugh;

“You better be careful. Linda will take over the whole gathering.”

After I confront her and her aunt’s GIANT PEE STAIN, she snarled this;

“Your family is dead!

Linda is pure evil. She undermined her sister and me. Heather tells me;

“Linda’s a Gold-digger. We all call her that. She doesn’t mind.”

Trump got 53 percent of the white woman votes. Many of them are Christians who own a LOVE FOR MONEY. Jesus is their Lucky White Rabbit’s Foot. Linda trained my daughter to see he as The Money Father. This witch says my daughter must pay her back. My daughter does not own this SLUT a thing. IT needs to be SUED – into the gutter! Look what Melania wore to see the Child Hostages. She is a Slut-Witch, too!

Just try to read this. I know it’s like eating your vegetables, when you hate them.

Judaism[edit]

In Hebrew, the word נָבִיא (nāvî), “spokesperson”, traditionally translates as “prophet”.[3] The second subdivision of the Hebrew Bible, TaNaKh (for “Torah, Nevi’im, Ketuvim”), is devoted to the Hebrew prophets. The meaning of navi is perhaps described in Deuteronomy 18:18,[4] where God said, “…and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.” Thus, the navi was thought to be the “mouth” of God. The root nunbetalef (“navi”) is based on the two-letter root nun-bet which denotes hollowness or openness; to receive transcendental wisdom, one must make oneself “open”. Cf. Rashbam‘s comment to Genesis 20:7.[5]

Malachi, one of the last prophets of Israel, painting by Duccio di Buoninsegna, c. 1310 (Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, Siena Cathedral). “He [Mashiach] will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents” (Malachi 4:6)[6]

In addition to writing and speaking messages from God, Israelite or Jewish nevi’im (“spokespersons”, “prophets”) often acted out prophetic parables in their life.[7] For example, in order to contrast the people’s disobedience with the obedience of the Rechabites, God has Jeremiah invite the Rechabites to drink wine, in disobedience to their ancestor’s command. The Rechabites refuse, wherefore God commends them.[8][9] Other prophetic parables acted out by Jeremiah include burying a linen belt so that it gets ruined to illustrate how God intends to ruin Judah’s pride.[10][11][11][12] Likewise, Jeremiah buys a clay jar and smashes it in the Valley of Ben Hinnom in front of elders and priests to illustrate that God will smash the nation of Judah and the city of Judah beyond repair.[13] God instructs Jeremiah to make a yoke from wood and leather straps and to put it on his own neck to demonstrate how God will put the nation under the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon.[14] In a similar way, the prophet Isaiah had to walk stripped and barefoot for three years to illustrate the coming captivity,[15] and the prophet Ezekiel had to lie on his side for 390 days and eat measured food to illustrate the coming siege.[16]

There is a 53 percent problem in American feminism.

According to exit polls, that is the percentage of white women who voted for Donald Trump. Whose votes helped hand the presidency to a man who said women who have abortions should face punishment and bragged that he grabs women “by the p—-.”

“It feels like women betrayed us,” Madonna told Billboard magazine earlier this month.

“The triumph of President-elect Donald Trump represents the failure of many things. One of them is white feminism,” black feminist author Tamara Winfrey Harris wrote on bitchmedia.org after the election.

My Daughter Is A White Nationalist

When Bill Cornwell and my daughter called me a “parasite” on the phone because I get SSI and food stamps, I knew my suspicions were true, they are both White Nationalists. Heather told me Bill’s father was a retired cop, a ex-drill sergeant, and, a Tea Party Patriot. She mentioned he was full of moral and high ideals, but, did not go into detail. He came to Santa Rosa and met Patrice Hanson who had a child by a Black Panther. I wondered how that went over. As usual, I was the last person my daughter confided in. And then I only got hints, clues, so as to keep our fake bond, alive!

Bill and his father were now on a mission to take my blue-eyed grandson from me. They had looked at my facebook and seen my Zulu Nazarites. Santa Rosa has long been a hotbed of racism against Mexicans. Bill and his buddies are The Great White Wall.

What blew Heather’s mind about meeting HER father, is, I was not very good at glossing over all her mistakes and flaws – like her mother – who created Heather. My daughter is Patrice’s empty canvas, her proof that she is even more creative than the Great Rosamond. Patrice told me her father spouted Aryan shit.

“I mold human beings. I make them in my image! I am Goddess Nazi!”

This is why Tyler was so rebellious. He was raised by two Nazi Mothers! For two months I discussed Linda’s GIANT PEE STAIN in the backseat of that rental car with my surviving sister. We had made a truce.

“If I mention that pee stain, she’s going to call me a liar, and, that will be that!”

Heather’s version, that she tells everyone, is, I had a sudden attack of mental illness – out of the blue.

“Things were going so nicely!”

I know Heather voted for Trump, and carefully studies his EVERY LIE! Her grandfather looks like Trump. If they had met, she would be crawling up on Captain Vic’s lap, too.

Having grown up with two Neo-Nazis, I knew how to read between the lines, and, see the signs. These racists love their Dark Hidden Agendas, the Cloak of Invisibility – sane family members provide them! No one like to admit a family member – IS INSANE! Here is Mark Presco’s Racist Misogynist Rants, that could be Trump’s master plan. It’s time to make a list of The Family Nazi, and post them on a National Register. Will someone please start a webpage where we can post photos and quotes?

Bill’s father forgave Patrice because she was the perfect example of what had gone wrong. Patrice had seen the error of her ways, and got behind Bill’s mission, which was to destroy my family reunion, and make my grandson – his son! Bill’s balls shoot duds. His Aryan Seed is no good. His father had a aching for The Fatherland.

Tyler was a handful. He drove off my daughter’s lovers. She did not make enough money to live by herself and Tyler. Nazi Bill was the answer to their payers. His father’s need for a White Heir, and his forgiveness of Patrice’s Black Ways, was possible, as long as THY destroyed The Family Scapegoat – together – as a team! Linda was all for this, after her demand for an Aryan Blood Test put her out in left field. Being a White Superman is our National Band-Aide that hides festering wounds of mass mental illness.

Heather told me Bill refused to help his mother who is confined to a wheelchair, and gets disability for being obese. She is a parasite, too. Heather was aware of all this evil bullshit when she signed a legal document making her my Trustee. Bill was furious I got free money – and a inheritance! It was none of his fucking business. He was not married to my daughter. He was just fucking her – for free!

“Why are you sharing my private financial information with someone you have only known for two months? You are my Trustee!” I asked Heather.

“We’re in love. We share everything together!”

Drunken Bill Cornwell is gone – after maxing out Heather’s credit cards, that he watched like a hawk, like a PARASITE! How many thousands of dollars did this shithead guzzle down – in front of my grandson?

Bill and Vic share the same birthday. Heather and Rosemary share the same birthday. It is like they rose from the grave.

I have bonded with a cousin that is kin to my grandmother, Mary Magdalene Rosamond. She has a large family. My DNA is making a DETOUR. In AA our natal birthdays take a backseat to our Sober Birthdays. I now have 31 years sobriety. I was REBORN April 7, 1987. How I managed to stay sober during all this – is a miracle! How supportive my family was NOT of my sobriety, is a indicator of how our family was NOT supportive of Christine Rosamond Benton’s Sobriety. Christine was reborn March 28, 1993. We are both Aries in Recovery.

Josh’s younger brother, Nathan, a former Marine who served two tours in Iraq, darted into the melee and punched a slight 20-year-old woman in the face. A few seconds later, he returned and landed a second punch squarely on the bridge of her nose. She dropped to the ground as Nathan retreated into the crowd. The second exchange was caught on video and went viral, fanning out to smartphones and laptops across the country in a matter of minutes. It became the most-watched clip of what was soon billed “The Battle for Berkeley.”

Hours later, Josh watched the video in his living room. There was Nathan, clearly identifiable in a blue dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up, square chin jutting out, blond hair kept in a Hitler Youth style. He cocked back his right fist and let fly; the woman’s head rocked violently. Josh replayed the clip. Was there something he had missed, an angle that could somehow justify the punch? The scene was chaotic: Dozens of people swarmed around and shoved each other as smoke swirled. The woman, with dreadlocks and a red bandana around her neck, came into focus just as Nathan stepped to center frame and decked her. It was just as ugly on second viewing.

https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/ideology/white-nationalist

Adherents of white nationalist groups believe that white identity should be the organizing principle of the countries that make up Western civilization. White nationalists advocate for policies to reverse changing demographics and the loss of an absolute, white majority. Ending non-white immigration, both legal and illegal, is an urgent priority — frequently elevated over other racist projects, such as ending multiculturalism and miscegenation — for white nationalists seeking to preserve white, racial hegemony.

White nationalists seek to return to an America that predates the implementation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. Both landmark pieces of legislation are cited as the harbingers of white dispossession and so-called “white genocide” — the idea that whites in the United States are being systematically replaced and destroyed.

Blood, Land, Honour and Faithfulness, (Bloed, Bodem, Eer en Trouw; abbreviated BBET), is a Flemish neo-Nazi group in Belgium, founded in 2004 from a splinter of the Flemish branch of the international Nazi skinhead organization, Blood and Honour. BBET rose to prominence in September 2006, after 17 members, including 11 soldiers, were arrested under the December 2003 anti-terrorist laws and laws against racism, antisemitism and negationism. According to Justice Minister Laurette Onkelinx and Interior Minister Patrick Dewael, the suspects were preparing terrorist attacks in order to “destabilize Belgium.”

Linda Comstock Held My Child Hostage

Here is what Tom Snyder had to say about the Family Sobriety. I was the first to get into a treatment program and become a member of AA. I have thirty years clean and sober. Heather Hanson signed an agreement to be my Special Needs Trustee, then brought three raging drunks into my life, and the life of my grandson. They helped destroy the creative legacy of my later sister, Christine Rosamond, who drowned on her first sober birthday. The law firm that handled Rosamond’s estate set up the Buck Trust and Alcohol Justice that took Gavin Newsom to court. So, these women who ostracize me will be magnified, their bad deeds thrown into the public eye!

In my book, I am going to line up these women behind Tyler’s great grandfather. I want to make sure they get full credit for bringing down two artists who tried to escape from this REAL ABUSER, but, the Gallery Witches and Gargoyles, dragged us down into the mire.

Patrice Hanson. Heather Hanson. Linda Comstock. Stacey Pierrot. Vicki Presco.

https://rosamondpress.com/2017/06/26/the-true-buck-justice/

“Other than the contributions of Christine’s art, what are we to make of her life and death? Two matters come immideatly to mind as a result of many conversations that make up this account. One – and it would be hard to over-emphasize this – is the impact on Vic and Rosemary’s children. Despite the powerful genetic and social influences at work throughout their childhood and later in life, Christine’s surviving brothers and sisters are clean and sober – a remarkable feat under the circumstances. Moreover, the course of Christine’s life in her last year suggests she had turned the same corner, embracing sobriety and greater possibilities of her own life.

The other matter has to do with Christine’s full legacy, which included not just her art, but her daughter, Drew. Only midway through high school

 

Linda Comstock held my new found daughter, Heather Hanson, hostage. She has no children. She and her attorney husband wanted to get money from me – BLOOD MONEY! After reading Pierrot’s ad for those WHO KNEW my famous sister, to contribute to her biography, THEY wondered how much money my family had, and, if THEY could get some of it.

First they had to find out if WE wanted anything they owned. They owned a sixteen year old girl. Who would want her? What if I was married – with children? How could they find out? If they called and talked with Pierrot, she might warn me;

“You got a daughter. Sounds like her family are bloodsuckers. Best disavow them. Make them prove it is your daughter. You don’t have to.”

The Hansons didn’t know Pierrot hired a rival biographer, and I had a falling out with my family. They were DELIGHTED to hear the good news – after they got their foot in the door. So, Patrice and Heather walked in the gallery – and said who they were. If I was there, I would not be able to block them out of my life. They were SPYING on me. They were STALKING me. They wanted to count how many children I had. Would I be interested in having another?

Heather heard all this COLD CALCULATING. She considered me denying her. She heard that I might be very rich and very selfish. She heard her calculating mother and aunt, see me as the Hanson Family Enemy who didn’t want my daughter to have ANY MONEY!

At sixteen, I suspect Heather was told the truth, that Randy Delpiano was not her father, and I was her father, and, it looked like my whole family was rolling in the doe. Heather was in shock that her mother, and her aunt, lied to her all these years. The devious ones anticipated that. They had to make me out to be the BAD ONE. They needed a smokescreen.

“Your father got rid of you long ago, because he thought your mother and her family were low-life scum. He hid himself from you because he and his family have money – a lot of money. YOU DESERVE much of this money. He owes it to you. THEY owe it to you!”

Linda demanded I get a blood test to prove I am Heather’s father. She claimed she was molested by a relative as a child. This drunk is suggesting I might be a fraud, a rapist in disguise. I wasn’t buying it. Then, a blood test was needed just incase Randy Delpiano, the San Quinton convict showed up and wants custody. Would his probation officer believe this evil lie?

Heather told Vicki her aunt could not pick me up at the airport because she has a pee-problem, and can not drive long distances. Flip is never sober – and probably has twenty DUIs. Check out the BIG PITURE of beer Linda has emptied into her bladder before she got in my rental then, unloaded on the long drive home.

What a evil calculating pig. She is a co-kidnapper. If you gave her a blood test, she would be way over the limit! Heather took delight in playing make-believe alcoholic with MY grandson who comes on like a rowdy tough guy! I sent these pics to Child Services. Tyler was bullying and beating on his classmates. Daryl Bulkley is a co-conspirator. I found a sane branch of my family – full of wonder sober people!

Capturing Beauty – The Blood Test

No father has had to struggle like I have to be recognized as a father – and a grandfather! When Heather came into my life I was working on my book about the Grail Bloodline and whether Jesus had any children. Many books have been written on this possibility. I could not help but compare my struggle with that of Jesus – if it is true he fathered a daughter! A famous book was made into a movie that suggests the Popes in Rome went to great lengths to unborn Jesus’child, and take away his Fatherhood. Jesus was allegeldy a grandfather. Many authors claim powerful forces hid this truth.Here are the first e-mails I exchanged with Heather and her mother, Patrice Hanson, who asks for a blood test because Linda Comstock was molested as a child, and has no trust of men. Hmmm! She trusted Bill Cornwell.

Patrice also says it would be good idea just incase Randall came back into my daughter’s life. Of course, I am not supposed to have a problem trusting Heather’s kindred.Did Delpiano molest my daughter – because he knew the truth?

“Part of my sister, Linda’s, fears for Heather are connected with the
fact that she (Linda) was molested by relatives on my stepmother’s
side when she was a young teenager. So she has very little trust of men and is
very protective toward Heather.”

After sending Patrice and Heather the first chapter of ‘Bonds With Angels’ Patrice speaks of how alcoholism destroyed her family. When Heather bonded with Bill, she knew how I felt about the use of alcohol, and how my novel will pass on our miracle to those who suffer. I believe Heather told Bill I was sober and would not approve of their bond that is based much upon the consumption of alcohol. When Bill bonded with my grandson, he began to look for a way to disquailfy and dehumanize me in order get me out of Tyler’s life.

Above is the log cabin I found on the McKenzie River for my futrue bride. I found a job for Patrice at McKenizie High School. I wanted to marry Patrice and have my daughter’s birth cirtificate changed. I wanted to get all records saying Randal Delpiano was the father, esponged. I wanted to take a blood test as is customary in California for newlyweds. A week after I sent these photos, Patrice Hanson illegally disapeared my daughter from my life! I am sure Linda Comstock was told the good news! I amsure my minor child heard all these dueling conversations that made me the target of their dark agendas. How could she make a loving bond with me – the enemy?

That Heather refused to perform her duties as Trustee until I signed a notorized document promising I would not write about ther side of the family, is her and her kindred’sattempt to un-father me. Do you think Linda Comstock and Flip are jealous of me?

Bill Cornwell has a un-natural bond with Tyler Hunt for the reason he is insanely jealous of his grandfather. Child Services needs to be informed!

Several Biblical scholars conclude Jesus was a Nazarite, and abstained from alcohol. Why would this fact be hidden? Where do Bootleggers get their name?

with such urgency before to find you, so now must be the time. And,

Why would Randy, a known dead-beat and con artist want to show up
out
of the blue and challenge anyone for the right to be Heather’s
father? Are you suggesting has seen the light, and wants to support
Heather in every way including having a judgment against him in a
court of law – MAKING him be the good father he never was? No
problem
here, as whenever he wants
out he would gladly take a blood-test!

I don’t buy it Patrice. Why would he assume the financial burdens a
sixteen year old girl would bring with legal guardianship. All of a
sudden he had the urge to put Heather through college? Now, who else
would show up wanting PROOF I am Heather’s father.

My sister suggested that when you come, we get a blood test done to
confirm paternity. I feel 100% certain in myself that you are indeed
Heather’s father. I think you know from your psychic intuitions and
when you see her you will confirm what you already know. However, as
Linda, my sister said, then we’d have confirmation on paper and if
anyone ever challenges it, we can prove it. For example, if Randy
ever shows up although I feel the chances are slim. It’s been 10
years now and we are not that hard to find for anyone who really
wants to. It might be a good idea though. What do you think?

Patrice; Once again, I will try to make this simple.
When I mentioned the blood-test, I was referring to
this as being ONE of the reasons I was feeling
anxiety, I only interested – AT THE TIME – in getting
a clearer picture of my daughter, it so very faint for
all the obvious reasons! I was not bringing up this
anxiety in order to coherse you into doing my bidding.
I was not saying “Your suggestion has made me upset,
anxious, and thus is jeopardized my relationship with
my daughter. Therefore, you must relieve my anxiety by
doing what I want – or, go along with what I do not
want to do.”

In Recovery this called Emotional Blackmail. I
mentioned this test again as to why I REALLY and TRULY
felt anxious, and am beginning to feel this way again!
I am embaraased about my anxiety, verses trying to get
you to do my will. Are you trying to make your point
clear – for the record?

For the record, all my letters and other forms of
communication are protected under my Copyright, I
registering my biography ‘Bonds with Angels’ under the
same Copyright, under the title ‘Notes of a New
Nazarite’ registration number TXu 791-053. The mention
of this Copyright is made in my Homepage ‘Royal
Rosamond Press’. I mention this as Tom Snyder
forwarded your email you sent him where you state you
are very interested in the biography he is writing.

As to what other arrangements that can be made in order
that Heather and I can see each other without any
other agendas getting in the way, is as follows:

1. I can see Heather for a half hour tommorow, and
then proceed to Oakland where my friend is letting me
stay in his mother’s house while she is in the
hospital. Heather can come visit me in Oakland, wespending a day
together.

2. My friend Virginia has offered to let Heather stay
in her home if she would care to come up and visit me.
Virginia and I are just good friends.

For you to introduce a violent, known liar, into this
picture, a man who has physically threatened me with a
baseball bat (as so many of my friends recall) as one
reason I should get a blood test in order to protect
my daughter from him, is highly suspicious. One can
easily say this IS cohersion, a thinly veiled TEST to
see if i am really a good father. Are you working my
low self-esteem on this one? How about your sister?

have no doubts about you and who you are. I see you only in the
highest and brightest light. Knowing Heather, I can’t help but do
that- she is so much you and she is so special, as I have said over
and over.

No, I will not back out. When Heather and I meet face to face, and
embrace surrounded by those who love us, all that may has been
wrong,
will be made “right”. Of this, I have no doubt. Do not worry, our
angels chose the right man.

Dear Jon, Your email this afternoon is so beautiful and filled with
wonderful energy. I read it to Heather and she just loved it. It
will
be so good for her to have a father who looks on her with love. I
can
notice
my sister coming in with a kind of protective energy toward Heather.
She said she won’t believe you are the father until she sees the
blood test. I too
checked on the cost after my last message to you and the quote I got
is $600. That is ridiculous! I don’t really get why it is so
expensive. So we can look at that and maybe find something that is
more do-able. Although I that the angels always fulfill my needs in
often remarkable ways, that amount is a little steep for me. I’ll
research it and see if I can find a
more reasonable way. Although, in my heart I feel it is totally
unnecessay. Yes it definitely is time to set things straight and for
everything to
be in the open. It feels so good and a little scarey too. I didn’t
realize until now, the degree of discomfort I have felt with this
secret. And even
though we’ve not been in touch with Randy for 10 years, all this is
reactivating my fear of him. What I know in truth is that we are
surrounded by angels
that are keeping us safe and I can trust that. I don’t want to buy
into any fear, but always remember that all things are working out
and being worked
out in the perfect way.

Part of my sister, Linda’s, fears for Heather are connected with the
fact that she (Linda) was molested by relatives on my stepmother’s
side when she
was a young teenager. So she has very little trust of men and is
very
protective toward Heather. I am fairly protective, but I also know I
have to trust the Divine Wisdom within her to make wise choices. She
does need
you now to give her a greater sense of herself and I feel out of
that she will make wiser choices. Knowing she has a dad who loves
her
is so important for
her right now. It must feel to you like you just had a baby girl.
Congratulations dad! I just still feel sad that you were not there
Sept. 26, 1984. The night she was born was an experience that I will
never
forget. I insisted that she stay with me in the hospital at all
times
and would notlet the nurses take her to the nursery. I just wanted
to
stay up with her
allnight and bathe in the feeling of being in love with her that was
pervading my being. It was quite extraordinary. She is a very
special
being. I’m
so happy you found out about her now rather than waiting any longer.

Thank you

angels!

Thank you for all this information. I printed it out for Heather and
myself. I did talk with her on the phone this morning. She was in
tears as I told her the story and she really thanked me for finding
you. Maybe it should have been sooner, but I never had the feeling
with such urgency before to find you, so now must be the time. And,
yes, I do believe there are angels at work here. Alcoholism runs in
my family, too and it destroyed our family making my dad an abuser
and my mom the victim who was in mental hospitals until she died at
the bottom of a cliff at Laguna Beach.

So, Heather has it on both sides of the family. When we split up
part
of it for me was that I was afraid
that you were alcoholic and maybe leaving Randy at the time in that
way was not really the solution that could work. I had to change
something in myself
and I’ve worked hard on it over the years and am still working on
it.
I’m happy that you entered a treatment program and have worked on
yourself also. I’m sure you are handsome as you always were. I told
Heather that you were a very good looking man.

I’m not sure how to get to your home page. Perhaps you could give me
some information on how to do that? I want to look at it with
Heather
when she gets here.
I trust and feel that the future holds good things for the three of
us however that may look. I am so happy that we are in communication
and this is a new beginning, especially for Heather. Talk with you
later.

Love
Patrice

Subject: Heather

I was noticing that for so long I have thought of Heather as just
mine. Although, I also realize that ultimately she does not belong
to
me and is
her own person. I have been her only parent ever since she came into
being. Now, connecting with you has begun the opening of another
whole part of herself
that was just aching to be born. Seeing this open up with the
lineage
of that part of her that is her father is really very extraordinary.
It’s almost as
if I am seeing her as a different person or that another aspect that
has been dark and unknown is lightening and opening so she can be
more in her
fullness. Does this make sense?

Anyway, I realize that she is not just mine. She chose to come in
through both of us and your family and all the richness it carries
with it is part of her also. Until now, it has not been fully
available to her, it has been a mystery and unknown to her. Now she
can truly blossom and the time is right. She really needs the energy
of a father. So for one who hasn’t experienced himself as a father
before this must be
pretty amazing as it is for Heather who hasn’t experienced herself
as
the daughter of a father before. I’m so glad we found you!

Thank you Patrice! I couldn’t have said it better. Thank you for
what
you did so long ago, your intuition, or guiding – Divine!? I think
all the timing is correct, even perfect, for it may be Angelic
Time? For instance: I have an altar in my home, actually two of
them,
one for the male energy, the other for the female energy. It helps
me
to worship
both in a separate manner as this enrgey was deliberately divided.
Anyway, the point being, on the Father/Baba altar I have kept a
apple
made of
bamboo/grass in China. Inside the apple (of our sin?) The top of
this
apple comes off (divides) and inside is a picture of a beautiful
Arab
girl holding a
pure white lamb. She is about six or seven years of age. I put two
names in this apple-basket, Elisheba and Salome, giving the meanings
of their name
“daughter of the oath” and “peaceful”.

There is also a white pearl in the apple that to me represents life
kept sacred and safe inside the sea
shell of Love. I have owned this apple for ten years, and today I
opened it, let the girl within, see the light of day! As you can
see,
I am a very visual, cryptic, and spirutal man – and father, so do
not
be alarmed. I will try to keep it simple, as you have done, adding,
being a spiritual person who has come to know he is a father for
sure…..is a heart-opener!

Heather in my dreams by my Angel and her mother. She is an artist,

When Tom first contacted me he told me I was central to Christine’s
biography. I considered letting him finish the biography I had begun
in 1990, as I have at least two books to write, I making several
starts,
only to have my information expand dramatically. I may have solved
some core mysteries of King Arthur and the Holy Grail, and great
secrets surrounding the original Nazarite church. Tom told me he was
working with Stacey, and I told him any help I provided had to be
under critical guidelines, being, this is a story of miracles and
recovery aimed at helping those who
suffer from the abusive disease of alcholoism – especially children –

who make bonds with angels in order to survive horrendous abuse and
abandonment.

Tom told me there had been a legal meeting with attournies where
some
legal steps were considered, but Tom himself refused to work under
these conditions. He tells me he wants me to sign a release of some
kind so my information will not be exploited in a sensational
manner.
It turned out to be a legal document asking me to give him EXCLUSIVE
rights to
the material, meaning, I could not draw upon my memories in written
form in regards to Christine, and perhaps all the members of my
family. I felt
this was a betrayal of the initial trust, which was tentative as it
was, as Stacey – a non-family member – ha been manipulative and
secretive since the
day of Christine’s funeral. She, and members of my family have been
getting their way, and power over others the exact way my abusive
parents did, through secret family information aimed at keeping my
family a closed covert family. Only those who agree to go along with
the dark agendas are let into the inner circle. For taking my niece
Shannon’s side in the chaos
outsiders created on top of my families tragedy, I was put, and kept
in the dark.

I will forward you an email from a fan of Christines in regards to
the disappearance of the ADULT heir that no one with all their
resources is attempting to find. They did nothing to help me find
Heather, I
pleading with the probate judge to consider the Miracle and Dream
that is still continuing in my LIFE, A miracle and dream I need to
subscribe to in
order to save my life. Stacey, Mark, and Vicki do not want my and
Christine’s Program, as the one they have, that allows them to own
all the creative endeavors in the family, works fine for them, and
is
a beautiful cover for the darkness they spread.

It sound like Tom has contacted you again? I would like to know.
With
the appearance of Heather in my life, things have changed in regards
to the artistic legacy I own a physical part of in regards to a half
million dollars worth of prints, that might make a partner with
Vicki, Stacey and the Gallery, as this partnership was separate from
the estate. I think
this is what they are worried about, they willing to have a legal
battle over this, knowing I am poor. But, if my biography becomes a
best seller, then I
own what they own, money and the power of a media that pays
attention
to a world famous artists, who might want to hear what I have to
say,
that may not be favorable to them who are not concerned about saving
lives via the Program Christine and I shared, we sister and brother
in Alcoholics Anonymous.

I am always open for negotiations and compromise. I seek your
guidance in regards to not wanting Heather exposed to this. Its only
the next day of
our reunion and your email that reminds me there is so much – DRAMA –

surrounding this legacy that was left to Hether’s two cousins, all
three not allowed to play, be players, all three, inheriting the
Creative Gifts Christine and I were born with. No one else in the
family have these Gifts. I find this utterly unfair!

Heather is a Libra like myself. What sign are you Patrice. If I
recall
you’re an Aquarius?

Jon, It’s great that its coming together so easily for you to come

and
that everything that is needed will be provided in terms of where
you
can stay, etc. I will try to talk to Diane today. It’s a little odd
living in someone else’s house because I can’t just open the house
to
my friends without clearing it and working out an exchange that
works
for the owner. But she’s really great and I feel she will understand
and be supportive. Plus she is a great
artist and will appreciate another artist and she is very familiar
with Rosamond’s work, so I’m sure it will be perfect and a win for
everyone.

I thought you should have the number for the phone that goes into
Heather’s room. She has her own line. It is.

I’ve been thinking about the apparent conflict in regard to the
biography. Perhaps there is information I don’t have but it seems to
me that a biography written by the brother would be a very different
book from a very different perspective than one written by an
outsider and so there would be room for the creation of both of
them.
I know when I am really
interested in someone or something, I like to get my hands on as
many
resources as possible to get information from a variety of points of
view. So I don’t see that it needs to be an either/or situation.
But,
as I said, perhaps there is something I don’t know that you do. We
can talk about it more. Tom
Snyder seems like a really nice guy also. It seems he is supportive
of you and he definitely played an important part in connecting you
with Heather and
that is important and not to be ignored.

I’m excited too. Maybe not as excited as you and Heather, but pretty
excited. I do look forward to seeing you again. I’m happy this is
all
out in the open now. It kind of lifts a weight off me that I wasn’t
really aware of but can notice now how much better it feels that you
know about your daughter.

Taking Away Louisiana Territory

God has bid me to take away the land that was illegally purchased from Napoleon, from the United States of America, and Declare it ‘God’s Land’. A white flag depicting a white dove descending with a branch, will be the flag of ‘God’s Kingdom’. Only ‘Patriots of God’ can own and fly this Universal Flag! Amen!

Thomas Jefferson believed the Constitution only applied to the Original Thirteen States and this document did not allow for the purchase of more territory, and the formation of more States. Because the southern states refused to obey Constitutional Laws, and resorted to terrorism and murder, only the Northern States can be home to ‘True Patriots’. Getting rid of as many Fake Patriots as possible, will make God’s work that much easier.

Because my kindred helped wrest California away from Mexico, there can be no True Patriots, there. Indeed, I declared myself the King of California in anticipation of the Evil that has befallen innocent children. God saw it coming, and sent His prophet to prepare the way for God’s two kingdoms. The original Oregon Territory, will be a Secular Nation, set apart from the original thirteen states.

Now that God has removed the false evangelical Republican Patriots from His Divine Power and Plan, let these new territories get to work in making sane and healthy plans to deal with a crisis that affects all the Americas, and the indigenous peoples that inhabited these places, long before white settlers got on ships, and sailed to THEIR land.

All Republican Christians will be forced to wear a t-shirt showing Trump hugging a flag, with these words written next to a pointing arrow……

“I’m with stupid!”

When ever you see a Republican moron wearing this shirt standing in line, you are allowed to cut in front of him or her.

‘The last shall be first!”

The effort would mark a dramatic turnaround for an administration that has been insisting, wrongly, that it has no choice but to separate families apprehended at the border because of the law and a court decision.

Fake Bear Flag Revolt

With the discovery my kin, Commodore Joseph Hull, led the naval force that captured Mexico’s navy, my pretentious claims to the state I was born, and the Louisiana Territory, is not without merit. Add to this the Grail Legends of the Bourmont family, then we have a fancifal drama Steven Spielberg might have an interest in, a hidden reality that exist just below the surface like table water that is being drawn upon to save California Growers from a terrible drought. Camelot is……dying~

Rosamond Press

My kindred, John Fremont, led a force that illegally took California from the sovereign nation of Mexico. It is a lie Fremont, and his father-in-law, were not aware a U.S. Naval force was prepared to take Monterey as soon as Fremont’s troops were on the move.

As King of California, I am prepared to reverse this egregious land-grab as soon as my claim to the Oregon Territory is recognized by the Mexican Government.

I suggest Mexico keep the Bear Flag in honor of our alliance with Russia and the coming Russian Monarchy.

Below is a cartoon that depicts Fremont’s new found Republican party as the party of nuts and radicals who do not want to obey anyone’s law of the land – anywhere! I regret these, thieves, have blood ties with my and my fiancés family, and in their name, I am prepared to right a great wrong.

Reclaiming the Lousiana Territory

Hambley 012

berry-d

Jean-baptiste_Say

Hambley 010Today, October 1, 2013, I John Gregory Presco, the fiancé of Virginia Hambley de Bourmont, claim what was the Lousiana Territory in the name of the House of Bourbon, wherein said Territory, will be established a Democratic Monarchy, as was established by the Ligitimists of France.

Three generations of de Bourmonts, personally accompanied the Duchess Du Berry in her families efforts to claim the throne of France in the name of the Bourbons.

Today, the President of the United States claimed our Democracy was shut down by Republican Congressmen who were conducting a “ideological crusade”. I have identified this crusade as coming from the economic ideology being pushed upon this nation by Libertarianism and libertarian Republicans who site the economic philosophy of Jean Baptiste SAY, who is the brother of another economist philosopher, Louis (Augustin) SAY, who is Virginia’s great great, great, grandfather.

This is to SAY, if Libertarians believe they own the right to shut down the Government of the United States of America in the name Jean-Baptise Say, and are the true owners and rulers of this Democracy, then, it stands to reason this is a Family ‘‘ideological crusade’’, owned by the linear descendants of the Say family.

It is my intent to apply the de Bourmont Family Ideology to the formation of the Democratic Bourban Monarchy, and make a claim to the Louisiana Territory, declaring this sale null and void because it went against the very philosophy of the Say Economists who promoted ‘Small Government’ and no Government Involvement in Economic Matters. This so happens to be what the opponents of the Louisiana Purchase believed in, as it drastically affected the adventure capitalist pioneers who had a right to exploit the land and resources as they saw fit. This right has been held by royal families in Europe and America.

With the coming union of Virginia Hambley, and John Presco, we also have the purchase of the Oregon Territory as promoted by my kindred, Senator Thomas Benton who son-in-law. John Fremont co-founded the Republican Party and was its first Presidential nominee.

Whether there will be a hereditary monarchy established in the New Bourbon Monarchy in America, remains to be determined – by fate? If this is what was meant to be, then I hereby recognize Virginian Hambley’s siblings, Caroline, Heloise, and Mark Hambley – and their children – as Heirs to the Democratic Throne of New France in America.

It is my desire to see a marriage between the rulers and subjects of New France, with the Arts and the New Enlightened Business Man, who will take the very best from the Say Brothers in order to keep this Economy going forward, and give a base for all Americans to reunite.

Above is a photograph of me holding on to the root of the grape vines Clarke Hambley planted in frot of his daughters’ house seventeen years ago. He built the trellis. I believe he felt guilty for denying his children their French Heritage by marrying Elizabeth de Bourmont. He had seen the Bourmont castle surrounded by vineyards.

Because Clarke was born in a Democracy, and his wife was born in France, here is the Root of the Bourbon Democratic
Monarchy in America brought to this Democracy to take hold.

On this day, I hereby declare Virginia Hambley de Bourmont ‘Titular Queen of the Bourbon Democratic Monarchy in America’. May she rule with dignity and grace.

As a wedding present I will gift unto her the Oregon Territory that was established and protected by my kindred. For the reasons set forth by Jean-Baptise Say, this territory should not have been purchased by the Government of the United States, and is now under the protectorate Virginia Hambley de Bourmont ‘Queen of the House of Bourbon in America’.

As for Religious Permission, I am a Nazarite after the Prophet Samuel, known as ‘The King Maker’.

So be it!

“Benton was instrumental in the sole administration of the Oregon Territory. Since the Anglo-American Convention of 1818, Oregon had been jointly occupied by both the United States and the United Kingdom.”

Some historians argue that Jefferson was a hypocrite in the Louisiana Purchase, primarily pointing to the fact that Jefferson was a strict constructionist in his views on the Constitution, yet allegedly took a loose constructionist view of the Constitution regarding the Louisiana Purchase.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says House Republicans have shut down the federal government over an ‘‘ideological crusade’’ against his health care law.
Obama is speaking in the Rose Garden on the first day of the government shutdown. He says the longer the shutdown continues, the worse the impact will be.
The president says Republicans should not be able to hold the entire economy ‘‘hostage.’’ He is urging them to reopen the government quickly and allow furloughed federal employees to go back to work.
The government shut down because Congress did not pass a funding bill ahead of Monday’s midnight deadline for the end of the 2013 fiscal year.

https://rosamondpress.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/genealogy-for-virginia-hambley/

This argument goes as follows:

The American purchase of the Louisiana territory was not accomplished without domestic opposition. Jefferson’s philosophical consistency was in question because of his strict interpretation of the Constitution. Many people believed he, and other Jeffersonians such as James Madison, were being hypocritical by doing something they surely would have argued against with Alexander Hamilton. The Federalists strongly opposed the purchase, favoring close relations with Britain over closer ties to Napoleon, and were concerned that the United States had paid a large sum of money just to declare war on Spain.[citation needed]
Both Federalists and Jeffersonians were concerned about whether the purchase was unconstitutional. Many members of the United States House of Representatives opposed the purchase. Majority Leader John Randolph led the opposition. The House called for a vote to deny the request for the purchase, but it failed by two votes, 59–57. The Federalists even tried to prove the land belonged to Spain, not France, but available records proved otherwise.[17]

The Federalists also feared that the political power of the Atlantic seaboard states would be threatened by the new citizens of the west, bringing about a clash of western farmers with the merchants and bankers of New England. There was concern that an increase in the number of slave-holding states created out of the new territory would exacerbate divisions between north and south as well. A group of northern Federalists led by Massachusetts Senator Timothy Pickering went so far as to explore the idea of a separate northern confederacy.
Another concern was whether it was proper to grant citizenship to the French, Spanish, and free black people living in New Orleans, as the treaty would dictate. Critics in Congress worried whether these “foreigners”, unacquainted with democracy, could or should become citizens.[18]
Most domestic objections were politically settled, overridden, or simply hushed up.[dubious – discuss] One problem, however, was too important to argue down convincingly: Napoleon did not have the right to sell Louisiana to the United States.[dubious – discuss] The sale violated the 1800 Third Treaty of San Ildefonso in several ways.[dubious – discuss] Furthermore, France had promised Spain it would never sell or alienate Louisiana to a third party. Napoleon, Jefferson, Madison, and the members of Congress all knew this during the debates about the purchase in 1803.[dubious – discuss] Spain protested strongly, and Madison made some attempt to justify the purchase to the Spanish government, but was unable to do so convincingly.[dubious – discuss] So, he tried continuously until results had been proven remorsefully inadequate.

The Louisiana Territory was broken into smaller portions for administration, and the territories passed slavery laws similar to those in the southern states but trying to encompass the preceding French and Spanish rule (for instance, Spain had prohibited slavery of Native Americans in 1769, but some slaves of mixed African-Native American descent were still being held in St. Louis when the US took over the Louisiana Territory).[35] In a freedom suit that went from Missouri to the US Supreme Court, slavery of Native Americans was finally ended in 1836.[35] The institutionalization of slavery under US territorial law in the Louisiana Territory contributed to the American Civil War a half century later.[34] As states organized within the territory, the status of slavery in each state became a matter of contention in Congress, as southern states wanted slavery extended to the west, and northern states just as strongly opposed new states being admitted as slave states. The Missouri Compromise of 1820 was a temporary solution.

Senator Benton’s greatest concern, however, was the territorial expansion of the United States to meet its “manifest destiny” as a continental power. He originally considered the natural border of the US to be the Rocky Mountains, but expanded his view to encompass the Pacific coast. He considered unsettled land to be insecure, and tirelessly worked for settlement. His efforts against soft money were mostly to discourage land speculation, and thus encourage settlement.

Benton was instrumental in the sole administration of the Oregon Territory. Since the Anglo-American Convention of 1818, Oregon had been jointly occupied by both the United States and the United Kingdom. Benton pushed for a settlement on Oregon and the Canadian border favorable to the United States. The current border at the 49th parallel set by the Oregon Treaty in 1846 was his choice; he was opposed to the extremism of the “Fifty-four forty or fight” movement during the Oregon boundary dispute.

Daguerreotype of Thomas Hart Benton, ca. 1850
Benton was the author of the first Homestead Acts, which encouraged settlement by giving land grants to anyone willing to work the soil. He pushed for greater exploration of the West, including support for his son-in-law John C. Frémont’s numerous treks.

A titular ruler, or titular head, is a person in an official position of leadership who possesses few, if any, actual powers.[1] Sometimes a person may inhabit a position of titular leadership and yet exercise more power than would normally be expected, as a result of their personality or experience. A titular ruler is not confined to political leadership but can also reference any organization, such as a corporation.

Etymology[edit]

Titular is formed from a combination of the Latin titulus (title) and the English suffix -ar,[2] which means “of or belonging to.” [3]

Development[edit]

In most parliamentary democracies today, the Head of State has either evolved into, or was created as, a position of titular leadership. In the former case, the leader may often have significant powers listed within the state’s constitution, but is no longer able to exercise them, due to historical changes within that country. In the latter case, it is often made clear within the document that the leader is intended to be powerless. Heads of State who inhabit positions of titular leadership are usually regarded as symbols of the people they “lead.”

A libertarian Republican is a person who subscribes to libertarian philosophy while typically voting for and being involved with the United States Republican Party.
Sometimes the terms Republitarian or liberty Republican are used as well. Libertarian Republicans’ views are similar to Libertarian Party members, but differ in regard to the strategy used to implement libertarian policies.[citation needed]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarianism

Libertarianism (Latin: liber, “free”)[1] is a set of related political philosophies that uphold liberty as the highest political end.[2][3] This includes emphasis on the primacy of individual liberty,[4][5] political freedom, and voluntary association. It is the antonym to authoritarianism.[6] Different schools of libertarianism disagree over whether the state should exist and, if so, to what extent.[7] While minarchists propose a state limited in scope to preventing aggression, theft, breach of contract and fraud, anarchists advocate its complete elimination as a political system

Louis Say (1774–1840) was a French economist. Brother of Jean-Baptiste Say, he issued a number of economic pamphlets criticizing the latter’s opinions.

Adam Smith (5 June 1723 OS (16 June 1723 NS) – 17 July 1790) was a Scottish moral philosopher and a pioneer of political economy. One of the key figures of the Scottish Enlightenment,[1] Adam Smith is best known for two classic works: The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776). The latter, usually abbreviated as The Wealth of Nations, is considered his magnum opus and the first modern work of economics. Smith is cited as the “father of modern economics” and is still among the most influential thinkers in the field of economics today.[2]

David Ricardo (18 April 1772 – 11 September 1823) was a British political economist. He was often credited with systematizing economics, and was one of the most influential of the classical economists, along with Thomas Malthus, Adam Smith, and John Stuart Mill.[2][3] He was also a member of Parliament, businessman, financier and speculator, who amassed a considerable personal fortune. Perhaps his most important contribution was the theory of comparative advantage in which he advocates that a nation should abandon industries in which it is internationally competitive in order to concentrate solely on those industries in which it is most competitive.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Baptiste_Say

Jean-Baptiste Say (French: [ʒãbatist sɛ]; 5 January 1767 – 15 November 1832) was a French economist and businessman. He had classically liberal views and argued in favor of competition, free trade, and lifting restraints on business. He is best known due to Say’s Law, which is named after him and at times credited to him, but while he discussed and popularized it, he did not originate it.

In 1800, John retired and the company was reorganized as Francis Baring and Co. Francis’ new partners were his eldest son Thomas (later to be Sir Thomas Baring, 2nd Baronet) and son-in-law Charles Wall. Then, in 1802, Barings and Hope were called on to facilitate the largest land purchase in history – the Louisiana Purchase. This was accomplished despite the fact that Britain was at war with France and the sale had the effect of financing Napoleon’s war effort. Technically, the United States purchased Louisiana from Barings and Hope, not from Napoleon.[citation needed] After a $3 million down payment in gold, the remainder of the purchase was made in U.S. bonds, which Napoleon sold to Barings through Hope and Company of Amsterdam [4] at a discount of 87½ per $100. Francis’ second son Alexander, working for Hope & Co., made the arrangements in Paris with François Barbé-Marbois, Director of the Public Treasury. Alexander then sailed to the United States and back to pick up the bonds and deliver them to France.

Louis Auguste Say, (born Lyon March 9, 1774 and died on March 6, 1840 in Paris) was a businessman, founding to large sugar refineries in Nantes and Paris, an economist and brother to the economist Jean-Baptiste Say (1767–1832). He was a severe critic of both Adam Smith and David Ricardo for their “looseness and fluctuations” in terminology.[1]
Selected works[edit]
1818 Principales causes de la richesse des peuples et des particuliers, Paris

Nowhere is Say’s radicalism more evident than in his critique of government intervention into the economy.64 Most succinctly stated, he declares that self-interest and the search for profits will push entrepreneurs toward satisfying consumer demand. “[T]he nature of the products is always regulated by the wants of society,” therefore “legislative interference is superfluous altogether.”65
Say’s comments on one particular series of legislative acts is very instructive. The first of the British Navigation Acts was passed in 1581; these Acts were strengthened in 1651 and 1660; and the last was not repealed until 1849. Their purpose was to reserve Britain’s international trade exclusively for the shipowners of the British merchant marine. Say argues that such monopolization of the “carrying trade” diminishes national wealth because it often reduces the profits of those merchants shipping their goods to market.

He recognizes that defenders of such statutes may grant this, but still insist that the restrictions are justified on the grounds of national security. Say retorts that this is so only if “it is an advantage to one nation to domineer over others. . . . The love of domination never attains more than a factitious elevation, that is sure to make enemies of all its neighbors. It is this that engenders national debt, internal abuse, tyranny and revolution; while the sense of mutual interest begets international kindness, extends the sphere of useful intercourse, and leads to a prosperity, permanent, because it is natural.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Louise_%C3%89lisabeth_d’Orl%C3%A9ans

Maria Luisa was born a Princess of Naples and Sicily. Her father, the future Charles III of Spain, had become King of Naples and Sicily in 1735 after its occupation by the Spanish in the War of Polish Succession. After her father became King of Spain at the death of her half-uncle, Ferdinand VI of Spain, in 1759, she became known as Infanta Maria Luisa of Spain. She still had the use of the style of Royal Highness.
Background[edit]
Maria Louisa was born in Portici, in Campania, the site of the summer palace (Reggia di Portici) of her parents, King Charles, King of Naples and Sicily and Maria Amalia of Saxony. She was the fifth daughter, and second surviving child, of her parents. Her father became King of Spain as Charles III in 1759, and she moved with her family to Spain. Her first cousins included Louis XVI, Maria I of Portugal and Charles Emmanuel IV of Sardinia.

Caroline was born at the Caserta Palace as the eldest child of Prince Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Naples and Sicily. Her mother was an Archduchess of Austria herself the tenth child and third daughter of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor and Maria Luisa of Spain. Her parents were double first cousins.
Caroline was baptised with the names of her paternal grand parents, Maria Carolina of Austria and King Ferdinand of Naples.
She spent her youth in Palermo and in Naples. Her mother died in 1801 having given birth a son the previous year with a difficult birth. She died aged 24; her father married again in 1802 to the Infanta Maria Isabella of Spain, another first cousin. The couple would have a further twelve children.
Caroline married King Louis XVIII of France’s nephew, Charles Ferdinand d’Artois on 24 April 1816 in Naples, following negotiations with the Kingdoms of Naples and Sicily[a] by the French ambassador Pierre Louis Jean Casimir de Blacas, thus becoming the duchesse de Berry otherwise known as Madame de Berry in France.
Even though it was an arranged marriage, it was a happy marriage Caroline living at the Élysée Palace in Paris which was given to her.
She became an important figure during the Bourbon Restoration after the assassination of her husband in 1820. Caroline’s son, Henri, Count of Chambord, was named the “miracle child” because he was born after his father’s death and continued the direct Bourbon line of King Louis XIV of France. (The Duke of Berry saw only one child born by Caroline, Louise).
In 1824, King Louis XVIII died and was succeeded by Caroline’s father-in-law, King Charles X.
In 1830, she was forced to flee France when Charles X was overthrown during the July Revolution. She lived in Bath and Regent Terrace, Edinburgh for a time.[2]
In 1831 she returned to her family in Naples via the Netherlands, Prussia and Austria.[2] Later, however, with the help of Emmanuel Louis Marie de Guignard, vicomte de Saint Priest, she unsuccessfully attempted to restore the Legitimist Bourbon dynasty during the reign of the Orléanist monarch, King Louis Philippe of the French (1830–1848).
Her failed rebellion in the Vendée in 1832 was followed by her arrest and imprisonment in November, 1832. She was released in June, 1833 after giving birth to a daughter and revealing her secret marriage to an Italian nobleman, Ettore Carlo Lucchesi-Palli, 8th Duke della Grazia. In 1844, she and her husband purchased the beautiful palazzo Ca’ Vendramin Calergi on the Grand Canal in Venice from the last member of the Vendramin family line. In the turmoil of the Risorgimento, she was forced to sell the palazzo to her grandson, Prince Henry, Count of Bardi, and many of its fine works of art were auctioned in Paris.[3]
She returned to Sicily, ignored by other members of the House of Bourbon, and died near Graz (Austria-Hungary) in 1870.
French novelist Alexandre Dumas, père wrote two stories about her and her plotting.
Patron of the arts[edit]
Even as member of the royal family, the Duchess of Berry was an exceptional theatre-goer. She was the patron of the Théâtre du Gymnase, which changed its name, for a time, to the théâtre de Madame, in her honour. She attended the Odéon at least nine times during 1824 to 1828. She contributed to benefit performances, such as that of Rossini’s La dame du lac (1826), benefiting victims of the fire at the Antonio Franconi’s Cirque Olympique; she contributed 500 francs.[4]

La moisson (1822) by Auguste-Xavier Leprince, oil on canvas, 24.2 x 32.1 cm, featured in her 1822 sale
The Duchess of Berry and her first husband, Charles-Ferdinand d’Artois, were enthusiastic art collectors. Her sale of 1822 was novel for its catalogue which contained lithographic reproductions of all the works.[5][6] Lithography, invented by Alois Senefelder, had only been fully described in 1818 in Vollstandiges Lehrbuch der Steindruckerei, translated into French in 1819. The lithographs, produced by Isidore Laurent Deroy[7] sparked an interest in the technique as a means for reproducing art.[8]
She was a collector of landscapes; her collection featured at least three by Ruisdael.[9] She had several genre scenes by Auguste-Xavier Leprince[7] and she owned works by Jan van der Heyden,[10] Michel Philibert Genod,[11] François Marius Granet, Pauline Auzou, Jean-Claude Bonnefond, Charles Marie Bouton, Martin Drolling, Hortense Haudebourt-Lescot and Achille Etna Michallon, among many others.[5]
The duchess was known to patronise the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory, commissioning notable works by Jean-Charles-François Leloy.[12]

Caroline of Naples and Sicily[1] (Maria Carolina Ferdinanda Luise; 5 November 1798 – 17 April 1870) was the daughter of the future King Francis I of the Two Sicilies and his first wife, Maria Clementina of Austria.

Charles X (Charles Philippe; 9 October 1757 – 6 November 1836) was known for most of his life as the Count of Artois before he reigned as King of France and of Navarre from 16 September 1824 until 2 August 1830.[1] An uncle of the uncrowned King Louis XVII, and younger brother to reigning Kings Louis XVI and Louis XVIII, he supported the latter in exile and eventually succeeded him. His rule of almost six years ended in the July Revolution of 1830, which resulted in his abdication and the election of Louis Philippe, Duke of Orléans, as King of the French. Exiled once again, Charles died in Gorizia, then part of the Austrian Empire.[2] He was the last of the French rulers from the senior branch of the House of Bourbon descended from King Henry IV.

Henry IV (13 December 1553 – 14 May 1610), Henri-Quatre (French pronunciation: ​[ɑ̃.ʁi’katʁ]) was King of Navarre (as Henry III) from 1572 to 1610 and King of France from 1589 to 1610. He was the first French monarch of the House of Bourbon.
Baptised as a Catholic but raised in the Protestant faith by his mother Jeanne d’Albret, Queen of Navarre, he inherited the throne of Navarre in 1572 on the death of his mother. As a Huguenot, Henry was involved in the French Wars of Religion, he barely escaped assassination at the time of the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre, and he later led Protestant forces against the royal army.
As a French “prince of the blood” by reason of his descent from King Louis IX, he ascended the throne of France upon the death of his childless cousin Henry III in 1589. In accepting the throne, he found it prudent to abjure his Calvinist faith. Regardless, his coronation was followed by a four-year war against the Catholic League to establish his legitimacy. As a pragmatic politician (in the parlance of the time, a politique), he displayed an unusual religious tolerance for the time. Notably, he promulgated the Edict of Nantes in 1598, which guaranteed religious liberties to Protestants, thereby effectively ending the Wars of Religion. He was assassinated by François Ravaillac, a fanatical Catholic, and was succeeded by his son Louis XIII.[1]
Considered as an usurper by Catholics and as a traitor by Protestants, Henry was hardly accepted by the population and escaped at least 12 assassination attempts.[2] An unpopular king during his reign, Henry’s popularity greatly improved posthumously.[3] The “Good King Henry” (le bon roi Henri) was remembered for his geniality and his great concern about the welfare of his subjects. He was celebrated in the popular song Vive le roi Henri and in Voltaire’s Henriade.

Upon the death of Henry III on 2 August 1589, Henry of Navarre nominally became king of France. The Catholic League, however, strengthened by support from outside the country—especially from Spain, was strong enough to force him to the south. He had to set about winning his kingdom by military conquest, aided by money and troops sent by Elizabeth I of England. Henry’s Catholic uncle Charles, Cardinal de Bourbon, was proclaimed king by the League, but the cardinal was Henry’s prisoner.[15] Henry was victorious at the Battle of Arques and the Battle of Ivry, but failed to take Paris after Siege of Paris in 1590.[16]
When the Cardinal de Bourbon died in 1590, the League could not agree on a new candidate. While some supported various Guise candidates, the strongest candidate was probably the Infanta Isabella Clara Eugenia of Spain, the daughter of Philip II of Spain, whose mother Elisabeth had been the eldest daughter of Henry II of France.[17] The prominence of her candidacy hurt the League, which became suspect as agents of the foreign Spanish. Nevertheless, Henry remained unable to take control of Paris.

Entrance of Henry IV in Paris, 22 March 1594, with 1,500 cuirassiers
“Paris is well worth a Mass”[edit]
On 25 July 1593, with the encouragement of the great love of his life, Gabrielle d’Estrées, Henry permanently renounced Protestantism, thus earning the resentment of the Huguenots and his former ally Queen Elizabeth I of England. He was said to have declared that Paris vaut bien une messe (“Paris is well worth a mass”),[18][19][20] although there is some doubt whether he said this, or whether the statement was attributed to him by his contemporaries.[21][22] His acceptance of Roman Catholicism secured for him the allegiance of the vast majority of his subjects, and he was crowned King of France at the Cathedral of Chartres on 27 February 1594. In 1598, however, he issued the Edict of Nantes, which granted circumscribed toleration to the Huguenots.[23]

When the French Revolutionary Wars broke out in 1792, Charles escaped to Great Britain, where King George III of Great Britain gave him a generous allowance. Charles lived in Edinburgh and London with his mistress Louise de Polastron[26] His older brother, dubbed Louis XVIII after the death of his nephew in June 1795, relocated to Verona and then to Jelgava Palace, Mitau, where Charles’ son Louis Antoine married Louis XVI’s only surviving child, Marie Thérèse, on 10 June 1799. In 1802, Charles supported his brother with several thousand pounds. In 1807, Louis XVIII moved to Great Britain.[27]

After the Hundred Days, Napoleon’s brief return to power in 1815,[33] the White Terror swept across France, when 80,000 Napoleonic officials and generals were removed from their positions and some even killed, most notably the Marshals Ney, who was executed for treason, and Brune, who was murdered by a mob.[34]

The king’s brother and heir presumptive[edit]
While the king retained the liberal charter, Charles patronised members of the ultra-royalists in parliament, such as Jules de Polignac, the writer François-René de Chateaubriand and Jean-Baptiste de Villèle.[35] On several occasions, Charles voiced his disapproval of his brother’s liberal ministers and threatened to leave the country unless Louis XVIII dismissed them.[36] Louis, in turn, feared that his brother’s and heir presumptive’s ultra-royalist tendencies would send the family into exile once more (which they did).
On 14 February 1820, Charles’s younger son, the Duke of Berry, was assassinated at the Paris Opera. This loss not only devastated the family but also put the continuation of the Bourbon dynasty in jeopardy, as the Duke of Angoulême’s marriage had not produced any children. Parliament debated the abolition of the Salic law, which excluded females from the succession and was long held inviolable. However, the Duke of Berry’s widow, Caroline of Naples and Sicily, was found to be pregnant and on 29 September 1820 gave birth to a son, Henry, Duke of Bordeaux.[37] His birth was hailed as “God-given”, and the people of France bought for him the Château de Chambord in celebration of his birth.[38] As a result, his granduncle, Louis XVIII, added the title Count of Chambord, hence Henry, Count of Chambord, the name by which he is usually known.

When it became apparent that a mob of 14,000 people was preparing to attack, the royal family left Rambouillet and, on 16 August, embarked on packet steamers provided by Louis Philippe to the United Kingdom. Informed by the British Prime Minister, the Duke of Wellington, that they needed to arrive in England as private citizens, all family members adopted pseudonyms; Charles X styled himself “Count of Ponthieu”. The Bourbons were greeted coldly by the English, who upon their arrival mockingly waved the newly adopted tri-colour flags at them.[56]
Charles X was quickly followed to Britain by his creditors, who had lent him vast sums during his first exile and were yet to be paid back in full. However, the family was able to use money Charles’s wife had deposited in London.[56]
The Bourbons were allowed to reside in Lulworth Castle in Dorset, but quickly moved to Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh,[56] where the Duchess of Berry also lived at Regent Terrace[57]
Charles’ relationship with his daughter-in-law proved uneasy, as the Duchess claimed the regency for her son Henry, whom the abdications of Rambouillet had left the legitimist pretender to the French throne. Charles at first denied her demands, but in December agreed to support her claim[58] once she had landed in France.[57] In 1831 the Duchess made her way from Britain by way of the Netherlands, Prussia and Austria to her family in Naples.[57] Having gained little support, she arrived in Marseilles in April 1832,[57] made her way to the Vendée, where she tried to instigate an uprising against the new regime, and was imprisoned, much to the embarrassment of her father-in-law.[58] He was further dismayed when after her release the Duchess married the Count of Lucchesi Palli, a minor Neapolitan noble. In response to this morganatic match, Charles banned her from seeing her children.[59]
At the invitation of Emperor Francis I of Austria, the Bourbons moved to Prague in winter 1832/33 and were given lodging at the Hradschin Palace by the Emperor.[58] In September 1833, Bourbon legitimists gathered in Prague to celebrate the Duke of Bordeaux’s thirteenth birthday. They expected grand celebrations, but Charles X merely proclaimed his grandson’s majority. On the same day, after much cajoling by Chateaubriand, Charles agreed to a meeting with his daughter-in-law, which took place in Leoben on 13 October 1833. The children of the Duchess refused to meet with her after they learned of her second marriage. Charles refused the various demands by the Duchess, but after protests from his other daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Angoulême, acquiesced. In the summer of 1834, he again allowed the Duchess of Berry to see her children.[60]
Upon the death of Emperor Francis in March 1835, the Bourbons left Prague Castle, as the new Emperor Ferdinand wished to use it for coronation ceremonies. The Bourbons moved initially to Teplitz, and then, as Ferdinand wanted the continued use Prague Castle, purchased Kirchberg Castle. Moving there was postponed due to an outbreak of cholera in the locality. In the meantime, Charles left for the warmer climate on Austria’s Mediterranean coast in October 1835. Upon his arrival at Görz he caught cholera and died on 6 November 1836. The townspeople draped their windows in black to mourn him. Charles was interred in the Church of the Annunciation of Our Lady, in the Franciscan Kostanjevica Monastery (now in Nova Gorica, Slovenia).[61] The remains of Charles X are in a crypt with those of other members of his family.

Constitutional monarchy is a form of government in which a monarch acts as head of state within the guidelines of a constitution, whether it be a written, uncodified, or blended constitution. This form of government differs from absolute monarchy in which an absolute monarch serves as the source of power in the state and is not legally bound by any constitution and has the powers to regulate his or her respective government.

After a resounding victory, a new Ultra ministry was formed, headed by Jean-Baptiste de Villèle, a leading Ultra who served for six years. The ultras found themselves back in power in favourable circumstances: Berry’s wife, the duchesse de Berry, gave birth to “miracle child”, Henri, seven months after the duc’s death; Napoleon died on Saint Helena in 1821, and his son, the duc de Reichstadt, remained interned in Austrian hands. Literary figures, most notably Chateaubriand, but also Hugo, Lamartine, Vigny, and Nodier, rallied to the ultras’ cause.

During the restoration, the new Bourbon regime was a constitutional monarchy, unlike the absolutist Ancien Régime, and so it had some limits on its abilities to govern.

The House of Bourbon-Parma (Italian: Casa di Borbone di Parma) is an Italian cadet branch of the House of Bourbon. It is thus descended from the Capetian dynasty in male line. The name of Bourbon-Parma comes from the main name (Bourbon) and the other (Parma) from the title of Duke of Parma. The title was held by the Spanish Bourbons as the founder was the great-grandson of Duke Ranuccio II Farnese, Duke of Parma.
Since 1964 a cadet branch of the House of Bourbon-Parma rules Luxembourg as Grand Duke.

Louise Marie Thérèse d’Artois (Louise Marie Thérèse; 21 September 1819 – 1 February 1864) was a duchess and later a regent of Parma. She was the eldest daughter of Charles Ferdinand, Duke of Berry, younger son of King Charles X of France and his wife Carolina of Naples and Sicily, daughter of King Francis I of the Two Sicilies.

Princess Zita of Bourbon-Parma (Zita Maria delle Grazie Adelgonda Micaela Raffaela Gabriella Giuseppina Antonia Luisa Agnese; 9 May 1892 – 14 March 1989) was the wife of Emperor Charles of Austria. As such, she was the last Empress of Austria, Queen of Hungary and Croatia, and Queen of Bohemia.
Born as the seventeenth child of the dispossessed Robert I, Duke of Parma and his second wife Infanta Maria Antonia of Portugal, Zita married the then Archduke Charles of Austria in 1911. Charles became heir presumptive to the Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria in 1914 after the assassination of his uncle Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, and acceded to the throne in 1916 after the old emperor’s death.
After the end of World War I in 1918, the Habsburgs were deposed when the new countries of Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs were formed. Charles and Zita left for exile in Switzerland and later Madeira, where Charles died in 1922. After her husband’s death, Zita and her son Otto served as the symbols of unity for the exiled dynasty. A devout Catholic, she raised a large family after being widowed at the age of 29, and never remarried.
Asteroid 689 Zita is named in her honour.

Robert I (Italian: Roberto I Carlo Luigi Maria di Borbone, Duca di Parma e Piacenza; 9 July 1848 – 16 November 1907) was the last sovereign Duke of Parma and Piacenza from 1854 to 1859, when the duchy was annexed to Sardinia-Piedmont during the unification of Italy. He was a member of the House of Bourbon, descended from Philip, Duke of Parma the third son of King Philip V of Spain and Elizabeth Farnese.

The Louisiana territory encompassed all or part of 15 present U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. The land purchased contained all of present-day Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska; parts of Minnesota that were west of the Mississippi River; most of North Dakota; most of South Dakota; northeastern New Mexico; northern Texas; the portions of Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado east of the Continental Divide; Louisiana west of the Mississippi River, including the city of New Orleans; and small portions of land that would eventually become part of the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The purchase of the territory of Louisiana took place during the presidency of Thomas Jefferson. At the time, the purchase faced domestic opposition because it was thought to be unconstitutional. Although he agreed that the U.S. Constitution did not contain provisions for acquiring territory, Jefferson decided to go ahead with the purchase anyway in order to remove France’s presence in the region and to protect both U.S. trade access to the port of New Orleans and free passage on the Mississippi River.

Although the purchase was thought of by some as unjust and unconstitutional, Jefferson believed there was no evidence of unconstitutional actions taking place during the purchase of what became fifteen states. In hindsight, the Louisiana Purchase could be considered one of Thomas Jefferson’s greatest contributions to the United States.[6] On April 18, 1802, Jefferson penned a letter to Robert Livingston. It was an intentional exhortation to make this supposedly mild diplomat strongly warn the French of their perilous course. The letter began:

While the sale of the territory by Spain back to France in 1800 went largely unnoticed, fear of an eventual French invasion spread nationwide when, in 1801, Napoleon sent a military force to secure New Orleans. Southerners feared that Napoleon would free all the slaves in Louisiana, which could trigger slave uprisings elsewhere.[8] Though Jefferson urged moderation, Federalists sought to use this against Jefferson and called for hostilities against France. Undercutting them, Jefferson took up the banner and threatened an alliance with Britain, although relations were uneasy in that direction.[8] In 1801 Jefferson supported France in its plan to take back Saint-Domingue, then under control of Toussaint Louverture after a slave rebellion.
Jefferson sent Livingston to Paris in 1801 after discovering the transfer of Louisiana from Spain to France under the Third Treaty of San Ildefonso. Livingston was authorized to purchase New Orleans.
In January 1802, France sent General LeClerc to Saint-Domingue to re-establish slavery, reduce the rights of free people of color and take back control of the island from slave rebels. This colony had been the wealthiest for France in the Caribbean, and Napoleon wanted its productivity restored. Alarmed about the French actions and its intention to re-establish empire in North America, Jefferson declared neutrality in relation to the Caribbean, refusing credit and other assistance to the French but allowing war contraband to get through to the rebels to prevent France from getting a foothold again.[9]
In November 1803, France withdrew its 7,000 surviving troops from Saint-Domingue (more than two-thirds of its troops died there) and gave up its ambitions in the western hemisphere.[10] In 1804 Haiti declared independence but, fearing a slave revolt at home, Jefferson and the US Congress refused to recognize the new republic, the second in the Western Hemisphere, and imposed a trade embargo against it. This made it difficult for the country to recover after the wars.[11]

Taking Jesus Away From Republican Christians

Imagine an America where half the voters walking about with their high and mighty attitudes, because they believe Jesus is on their side, in truth have been rendered Godless this very day! God has taken His son away from every Republican Christian. There is no way of getting Jesus back. It is done!

Above is a painting of Jesus at the temple astounding the elders with his knowledge of the Torah. He is allegedly twelve years old, the age when Jewish boys are about to become men. At Biblical test is involved. Jesus passes this test with flying colors. Apparently he was born with knowledge of Perfect Torah. He takes the learned men on a tour of the Torah, past the passages that had long confounded them. When I read the Bible for the first time at forty years of age, I asked obvious questions:

  1. Did boy Jesus give the same lessons when he was an adult? If so, why did the Jews want to end the life of Jesus – the man? Why didn’t they kill him when he was twelve?

Twelve years ago I figured out that John the Baptist spoke and wrote when he was eight DAYS old. The Koran has Jesus speaking –  just after he was born. What I conclude, is that John the Baptist was THE STAR CHILD filled with the Holy Spirit while in his mother’s womb. The Magi followed a star, and found John’s parents in a Sukkot booth. The Magi anointed him with oil when he was born. Eight DAYS later, they asked John what name he would own in this lifetime. He asked for a writing tablet, and wrote his name. His lips were unsealed, and he spoke his name. I believe John was about the age of the boy in the photograph below. This boy is giving the same lessons the two year old John gave when he opened the Torah. This is why the elders were astounded.

In the painting above, Mary rushes to the temple to get her lost son Jesus who is talking with the elders. He is supposed to be twelve years of age. What’s the big deal? It appears it is his bar mitzvah. If so, Jesus is considered a man, who does not have to answer to his parents, but to God. Is this text distorted to hide the truth Jesus was a devout Jew? What if this is John the Baptist. What if John is about three years of age? It is said John was Elijah. There is such a thing as ‘Elijah’s Chair’. Did the eight day old John rebuke the Children of God?

A writer lied when he put words in Jesus’ mouth saying John was not Elijah. This LIE sinks the wicked juggernaut all Christendom has become with the election of The King of Lairs, Donald John Trump!

As a recovering alcoholic I was bid to acquire a Higher Power. A relative gave me a Bible. I never read the Bible. Jesus came to me. He was surrounded by radiating slivers of gold light. A month later, I find my being, my soul in the middle of Cultural Warfare. This is not what I was looking for. Two more months go by, and God is giving me answers.

Radical Evangelicals swore Jesus-God bid them to get rid of Secular Government and Secular solutions. They put many of their ilk in office. Why did these Law Makers meet in Congress, yesterday, and say nothing as the Mad King Herod of our time hugs the flag and rages against mothers and children? Why didn’t they meet in a nearby church, and ask for divine guidance? Here was THEIR chance to prove that God-Jesus was speaking through them, just them.

Where is the voice of Jewish leaders who were seeing the same thing that Hitler did to the Jews. They were lined up with their children clutching their mother’s hand as they entered the gas chambers. Mother’s died comforting their children from THE TERROR! THIS IS TERRORISM. There are laws against TERRORISM!

The Republican President of the United States did to human beings, what the Nazis did not do. He seperated children from their mothers. And, this was just fine, because he was not MURDERING these mothers and their children. He stops short of doing that! And, thus, there is no pain, no anguish, no TERROR? How many mothers want to die because they lost their child? How many children want to die because they lost their mother? when the pain is too great, people want to die! How many people will die if the American flag is torn from their hand?

Today, Jesus has returned. There are many Saviors that walk upon the earth, this day. Not one of them has come for a Republican Voter, who has taken part in the coming of this Evil Terrifying Game invented by a real live Satan.

I am going to write my Congressman and bid him to confront the President of the United States, and accuse him of being a TERRORIST, and thus a SECULAR LAW BREAKER! What is astounding, is, infants and children are expected to own sane reasons why these terrible things are being done to them – AND STOP CRYING – while a grown rich man, throws a fit and hugs our flag like it is his blanky. This evil man – is not an adult!

Republican Christians have invented many false tests to apply to others. God has put them through His own test, and they have failed. Coming next, they lose the Patriot’s Test. They will be rendered – without a Nation!

So be it! What their President so gleefully does to others, shall be done unto them!

The widespread practice is that on a Sabbath shortly after he has attained the age of thirteen, a boy is called up to read from the weekly portion of the Law (five books of Moses),[6] either as one of the first seven men or as the last, in which case he will read the closing verses and the Haftarah (selections from the books of the Prophets); and if he is unable to read, to recite at least the benediction before and after the reading.[7] He may also give a d’var Torah (a discussion of some Torah issue, such as a discussion of that week’s Torah portion) and/or lead part or all of the prayer services.

Matthew 2:16-18 English Standard Version (ESV)

Herod Kills the Children

16 Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, became furious, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men. 17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah:

18 “A voice was heard in Ramah,
    weeping and loud lamentation,
Rachel weeping for her children;
    she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.”

Mark 6:20 New International Version (NIV)

20 because Herod feared John and protected him, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard John, he was greatly puzzled[a]; yet he liked to listen to him.

At the circumcision ceremony (brit milah), it is customary to have a seat designated for Elijah the prophet. According to tradition, Elijah, who is referred to as the “angel of the brit,”1 visits every circumcision ceremony. Here’s why:

During the period when the nation of Israel was split into two kingdoms, Elijah the prophet had a showdown at Mt. Carmel with 450 false prophets of the Baal idol, resulting in their deaths. The king of the northern kingdom, Ahab, together with his wicked wife Jezebel, sent a message to the prophet Elijah: “At this time tomorrow, I will make your life like the life of one of them.”2

Elijah fled, and 40 days later he arrived at a cave on Mount Sinai where he spent the night. There G‑d revealed himself to Elijah and said, “Elijah, why are you here?” Elijah replied: “I have been zealous for the L‑rd, the G‑d of Hosts, for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant . . . and they seek my life to take it.”3

Which covenant did the people forsake? The Midrash says Elijah was referring to circumcision, which is called a brit (“covenant”). Furthermore, according to one midrash, not only did Elijah complain about them abandoning the covenant, but in his zealotry he asked G‑d to punish the sinners of Israel.4

The Midrash says that G‑d rebuked him, saying: “They abandoned My covenant, not yours; they dismantled My altars, not yours; they killed My prophets, not yours. Why are you more zealous than I!?5

“I vow,” continued G‑d, “that whenever My children make this sign in their flesh [i.e., whenever there is a circumcision], you will be present, and the mouth which testified that the Jewish people have abandoned My covenant will testify that they are keeping it.”6

By attending every circumcision, Elijah was given the opportunity to rectify his error by testifying in their favor and to their credit that they do keep the covenant.7

It is for for this reason the sages instituted that there be a seat of honor for Elijah at every circumcision.8

At the brit milah we pray that just as Elijah came to testify in our favor, so may he come and herald the final redemption!

 He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

18 Zechariah asked the angel, “How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well along in years.”

19 The angel said to him, “I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. 20 And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their appointed time.”

Then they made signs to his father, to find out what he would like to name the child. 63 He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone’s astonishment he wrote, “His name is John.” 64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God. 65 All the neighbors were filled with awe, and throughout the hill country of Judea people were talking about all these things. 66 Everyone who heard this wondered about it, asking, “What then is this child going to be?” For the Lord’s hand was with him

.

The blood of decent Americans was already boiling because of the pictures and audio of children being separated from their parents at the border. Then came the Associated Press article Tuesday evening:

Trump administration officials have been sending babies and other young children forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border to at least three “tender age” shelters in South Texas, The Associated Press has learned.

Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday.

This is moral madness, a betrayal of universal human values that marks the lowest point in the Trump presidency — or any presidency since the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

Mark 6:20 New International Version (NIV)

20 because Herod feared John and protected him, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard John, he was greatly puzzled[a]; yet he liked to listen to him.

The Boy Jesus at the Temple

41 Every year Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem for the Festival of the Passover. 42 When he was twelve years old, they went up to the festival, according to the custom. 43 After the festival was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it. 44 Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends. 45 When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”[a] 50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

51 Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

During the Galilean ministry of our Lord and Savior, the disciples came unto Him, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

“And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

“And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

“Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matt. 18:1–6.)

The Branch From Jesse

11 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
    from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—
    the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and of might,
    the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord
and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.

He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
    or decide by what he hears with his ears;
but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
    with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
    with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.
Righteousness will be his belt
    and faithfulness the sash around his waist.

The wolf will live with the lamb,
    the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling[a] together;
    and a little child will lead them.
The cow will feed with the bear,
    their young will lie down together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The infant will play near the cobra’s den,
    and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.
They will neither harm nor destroy
    on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord
    as the waters cover the sea.

10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious. 11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush,[b] from Elam, from Babylonia,[c] from Hamath and from the islands of the Mediterranean.

12 He will raise a banner for the nations
    and gather the exiles of Israel;
he will assemble the scattered people of Judah
    from the four quarters of the earth.
13 Ephraim’s jealousy will vanish,
    and Judah’s enemies[d] will be destroyed;
Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah,
    nor Judah hostile toward Ephraim.
14 They will swoop down on the slopes of Philistia to the west;
    together they will plunder the people to the east.
They will subdue Edom and Moab,
    and the Ammonites will be subject to them.
15 The Lord will dry up
    the gulf of the Egyptian sea;
with a scorching wind he will sweep his hand
    over the Euphrates River.
He will break it up into seven streams
    so that anyone can cross over in sandals.
16 There will be a highway for the remnant of his people
    that is left from Assyria,
as there was for Israel
    when they came up from Egypt.
