In the beginning, there was only one Christian, and the slave masters crucified him!
Once again, get your Satanic symbol off Fremont’s flag, and get the hell out of Fremont’s party. Show some guts, you snakes from hell, and form your own party, and fly your evil flag over your treacherous heads.
One blogger wonders if the showdown between Perry and Obama is another Civil War. Below is my post written September, 19, 2009.
Would a Perry v. Obama Contest Be a Confederacy v. Union Rematch?
For conservatives, Perry victorious would mean nothing less than the South as a phoenix in the form of an eagle, rising from the ashes of a short-lived and fallen nation. Indeed, Perry’s neo-Confederate links have been well-catalogued, particularly by Salon’s Justin Elliott. (In 2000, Elliott reports, Perry wrote to Denne Sweeney, leader of the Texas chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, to assure him that “I oppose efforts to remove Confederate monuments, plaques and memorials from public property.” He added, “I also believe that communities should decide whether statues or other memorials are appropriate for their community.”)
But the Confederate-Union friction that would play out in a Perry-Obama contest runs deeper than ideology; it’s a matter of culture. This would be an election that more starkly illuminates America’s cultural divide than any that have come before it in modern times.
Special thanks for our Division Commander Farrell Cooley for coming out to present his memorial address that was tailored to those veterans who came home to burned farms and the insult of living under Yankee “Reconstruction” and moved out West to start a new life.
Thanks to all who took the time out of their day, to attend and honor their ancestors and all who fought for the Cause.
God Bless Dixie,
I am the Historic and Religious Heir to the Republican Party
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of
patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”
Doctor James Oliver Rosamond was a Masonic Knight Templar. James’ grandfather
was John Hodges Rosamond, the son of Captain Samuel Rosamond who was a scout and
spy for Francis Marion `The Swamp Fox’ who is the subject of the movie `The
The bloodline of Hodge and Rosamond families are found at the base of South
Carolina’s history. The Hodge family also fought under Marion, as did the
Witherspoons. We shed our blood for Liberty. Our blood rises from the ground in
South Carolina. Our graves are still being found. A New South has risen. The Old
South is cut off, and withers away.
In 1971 I and Dottie Witherspoon went to Meher Baba’s home in Myrtle Beach South
Carolina. I asked to sit in Baba’s chair that was behind a red velvet rope. The
guide hesitated for a minute for no one has ever sat in that chair but Baba. He
unhooked the rope, and I sat down for about fifteen minutes with my eyes closed.
I am amazed at the current events that identifies South Carolina as the home of
President Obama Haters.
Meher Baba comes from an ancient linage of Parsi, or Parthians, who were the
Magi. In 1987 I went up to Portland where Baba Lovers from all over the world
gathered. I spoke at a filmed meeting. When I came home my kin offered me a
Bible. A week later I read all of Luke, and was in the light. A month later I
became the enemy of the evangelicals and the Christian-right. I have concluded
the same things that Franklin Schaeffer has concluded. His father was a
co-founder of the Christian-right that claimed the Republican Party as its party
that was divinely ordained to them, as was this Democracy. They lie!
Moderate and Secular Republicans let themselves be moved aside by the
Christian-right so that they may own a share in the powerful block of voters who
were bid to flock to this party. They considered ownership of this party, and
their silence acknowledges this party is a Religious Party. It can not be any
such thing, as it was founded by Freethinkers, Masons, and Forty-Eighters.
In his appearance on the Rachel Maddow show, Frank Schaeffer revokes the
religious permission evangelicals thought they owned to take over and control
the Republican Party. He says he has returned to the original Protestant Church
as promoted in this Democracy by the Signer, John Witherspoon, a descendant of
John Knox. Dottie Witherspoon is kin to Knox, and in 1972 became a member of the
Lighthouse ranch that was a part of the Jesus Movement.
On this day I declare that I am a Patriotic Heir to the Spiritual and Religious
Revolution that found a home in South Carolina that became corrupted when
citizens of this State, along with the Sephardic Jews, engaged in Slavery, and
in the shipping of black slaves to this state.
On this day, I cast out all those who honor the Confederate Flag, and promote
neo-Confederate ideas, from the Republican Party, from the SCV, and from the
presence of Jesus, the Abolitionist.
In particular I condemn and cast out from the Sons of Confederate Veterans, from
the Republican Party, and the Protestant Church, Denne Sweenie, who is the
embodiment of Satan. He purged from the leadership of the SCV my kin, Anthony
Hodges – who I recognize as the rightful leader!
My Rosemont/Rosamond kin are ancient members of the Orange Order, and rode
alongside William of Orange. We were there at the very beginning of the
Reformation. We are the Burning Bush of Truth that cannot be extinguished, for
God has his finger on this Rosy family, and is forever ready to bring us back
into His Sheepcote whenever we go astray. He born me into the Rosamond family
for a profound purpous that has become manifest. I am Rosamond Go’el Redeemer. I
am the Way. I stand at the entrance of this His Sheepscote. Follow me, and be
The SCV has programs at the local, state, and national levels for its members,
such as marking Confederate soldiers’ graves,
Yes, I would very much like to know where these graves were located and if there
are any other Rosamond graves there. The fact that this cemetery is overgrown
indicates it may be one of those we missed when several of my cousins and I were
touring SC cemeteries several years ago.
I suspect that Jane Westfield Rosamond was the wife of John Hodges Rosamond who
was married to a Jane or Jennie Westfield. I have her birthdate as about 1791
which would fit pretty well with the dates given here. John Hodges Rosamond was
the son of Captain Samuel Rosamond. I am very interested in locating his
gravesite and it’s possible that he was also buried here.
Since his 2004 election, Sweeney has moved to consolidate power by appointing to
key leadership positions men who have belonged to hate groups or have histories
of racism. Last year, for instance, he selected Jim Pierce of North Carolina to
develop a “new and expansive” genealogy program for the SCV.
Pierce is a well-known radical in the SCV civil war. In 2002, he circulated a
grossly racist cartoon — a huge-lipped caricature of a black woman endorsing an
anti-racist candidate for high SCV office to be her “massa” (“He sho am good foa
me”). The following year, after a rare black SCV camp commander criticized a
North Carolina SCV officer who is a Holocaust denier, Pierce angrily challenged
the critic to provide documents proving “he is truly eligible to join the SCV.”
As chief of staff, Sweeney selected Ronald Casteel, who has been a member of the
neo-secessionist League of the South (LOS), a racist hate group that opposes
interracial marriage and whose leaders have defended both segregation and
slavery (Casteel’s license plate holder reads “SCV-LOS”). Sweeney’s appointed
historian in chief is Charles Kelley Barrow, who also has been a member of the
Following the Feb. 17 court action, Commander-in-chief Hodges, in a statement
posted on the Internet, sought to assure the organization’s 30,000 to 35,000
members that the ouster was “mandatory,” and that “the GEC acted in the best
interests of the SCV.”
“Never before have we faced such an atmosphere of intimidation in the SCV, in
which members, officers and GEC members have been suspended or threatened with
suspension or expulsion for little or no reason,” Hodges wrote. “Our pride in
history has become, for a few, a faÁade masking anger, resentment and an
apparent desire to browbeat the SCV into a new direction, one with [a]
politically ideological path determined by a select few.”
Hodges listed eight allegations against Sweeney, including suspensions and
threatened suspensions of board members, conducting “harassing investigations”
against opponents on the board, and “creating and maintaining a hostile work
Hodges closed by warning members, “Be very skeptical of the shrill voices of
contentiousness.” He asked for members’ “prayers, support and patience” in the
board’s efforts “to return the SCV to an organization committed to reasonable
conduct, a precious heritage and the rule of law.”
John was in the militia in Prince Georges County, MD in the 1730s (1734-37) as a
private serving under a CPT Beall.
The note regarding ‘other members of the Rosamond family’ probably refers to
Marion Francis Rosamond and/or his children.
1740 when John was 30, he married Sarah Wilson, W425, F, daughter of Thomas
Willson, M & Elizabeth Dinwiddie, F, in Augusta County, Virginia. Born ca 1726
in County Antrim, Ireland. Immigrated in 1740 to Virginia. Sarah died in South
Carolina aft 1790, she was 64.Sarah Wilson arrived in the English colonies in
1740 with her sisters and her mother. Her father, Thomas Wilson, was already in
Augusta County, Virginia. She married John Rosamond in Augusta County ca. 1747,
and their family relocated to the Abbeville District of South Carolina sometime
around 1765.They had the following children: 2 i. Margaret, F (ca1745-ca1823) 3
ii. Samuel Null, M (ca1751-1814) 4 iii. James, M (ca1754-<1806) iv. Jean, R255,
F. Born ca 1743 in Augusta County, Virginia. Jean died in Abbeville County, SC
aft 1793, she was 50.Jean's will in 1793 named her brother Samuel Rosamond and
his wife, her sister Sarah, her brother James, and sister Margaret Rosamond
Weems. Jean never married.
Samuel enlisted in the militia around 1776-77 and served as a Lieutenant under
Captain Adam Crain Jones and Colonel Robert Anderson (for whom Anderson County,
SC was named.) In 1782 he was appointed Captain and served at the Siege of
Ninety-Six and the Battle of Kettle Creek in Wilkes County, GA on Feb. 14, 1779
during the Revolutionary War. This battle enabled the revolutionists to halt the
British advance in Georgia after the capture of Savannah. According to Samuel's
great-grandson James Oliver Rosamond, Samuel served as a scout and spy under the
direction of Colonel Francis Mariion, the "Swamp Fox".A copy of Samuel's will is
contained in another web page on this site at

Knights Templar (Freemasonry)
The full title of this order is The United Religious, Military and Masonic
Orders of the Temple and of St John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta.
Knights Templar is an international philanthropic Masonic order affiliated with
Freemasonry. In some countries it forms part of the York Rite, while in others
it is a separate order on its own. In the mid 1700s the Freemasons began to
incorporate symbols and traditions of the medieval Knights Templar. The original
medieval Order of Knights Templar was established after the First Crusade, and
existed from approximately 1118 to 1312. There is no known historical evidence
to link the medieval Knights Templar and Masonic Templarism, nor do the Masonic
Knights Templar organizations claim any such direct link to the original
medieval Templar organization.
The Knight of Rose-Croix Degree in the "Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite", and
honorary Orders like the Royal Order of Scotland are interpreted as evidence of
a historical Templar-Masonic connection, though there is no factual basis for
Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburgh has been suggested to be strong link between the
Knights Templar and Freemasons due to reliefs combining Templar and Freemason
symbolism. Rosslyn Chapel was indeed founded by William De St Clair.
And, until we move past these people, and let me add as a former life-long
Republican, until the Republican leadership has the guts to stand up and say it
would be better not to have a Republican party than to have a party that caters
to the village idiot, uh, there's gonna be no end in sight.
In 1941 Elizabeth Chapin Patterson and Princess Norina Matchabelli, early
disciples of Meher Baba, were sent by him to establish a center for his work in
the United States. After three years of searching for the right location, they
were finally successful.
In June of 1944, Elizabeth wrote a long letter to Baba, describing the land she
had secured for his center and reviewing the events that had led up to this
gift. She wrote: "You gave five qualifications for the land, but did not say
where the location should be in this country. They were: the place must have an
equitable climate; virgin soil; ample water; soil that could be made
self-sustaining to a large number of people; and the property should be given
from the heart."
Meher Baba said of the Center: "I never leave. Remember, I do not leave because
this is my home."
One of the leading contenders for being James' (Rosamond) wife is Dorothy
Hodges, the one who was captured by the Indians and later returned to live with
her family. She is supposed to be the sister of Richard Hodges and Sarah Hodges
The Hodge and Rosamond family is entwined. The Hodges put many Rebel Soldeirs in
the field against the most powerful army in the world, a force that captured as
much of the world as the Roman empire. With hostile indians on one side, and Red
Coats on the other, there have been a thousand cliches that have attempted to
depict what life was like for our Founding Fathers. With warfare all around
them, the Rosamond and Hodge family conducted weddings, and from their unions
sprang a Nation. The city of Hodges South Carolina was built on what was called
"the Jews land". Then Dorothy Hodges was taken away by an Indian chief, and a
child was born in the wilderness.
The Thomas Hart family were the premiere family of Kentucky. They were Kentucky
Bluebloods. When the song 'My Old Kentucky Home' was sung at the Kentucky Derby
in the presence of Queen Elizabeth yesterday, the Hart, Benton, Preston, and
Breckenridge families knew this was their song. This is the family that first
imported thoroughbred to Kentucky, and founding pari-mutuel betting. My niece,
Drew Benton, descends from these folks from Kentucky who went into business with
William and Mary College was founded by William of Orange who was a Swan
Brethren, as were two of my Rosamond/Roesmont ancestors. Two Rosamonds were
members of the Canadian Parliament.
The Hodge family purchased land in South Carolina that once belonged to Francis
Salvador, a famous Jew who was killed in the Revolutionary War. This land was in
the 96th district where James Rosamond bought large tracts of land. This land is
titled the "Jews land" in the Hodge family genealogy. The Jews who owned this
land are kin to Jesus.
Drew Benton is the daughter of the artists, Garth Benton, and Christine Rosamond
Presco. She is the great niece of the artist Thomas Hart Benton who is kin to
the Breckenridge and Witherspoon family. A statue of John Witherspoon was sent
across the water to Princeton. Members of the Witherspoon family were present to
greet it as a crew for the BBC made a film of this goodwill gesture. I lived
with a Witherspoon for a year in Oakland and Alameda. The Witherspoons are found
in the Peerage. John Witherspoon was a signer of the Constitution.
"He was a great great grandson of John Knox (1505 -1572) and his second wife,

strength and power – even from the Laird who became Shakespeare's Banquo's

Gen. John Charles Fremont on October 19, 1841 in Washington, D. C. She died on
December 27, 1902 in Los Angeles, CA, at age 78. John Fremont mapped much of the
Iowa Territory in 1841 and explored the Wind River Chain of the Rocky Mountains
in 1842. He explored Colorado, Great Salt Lake and Oregon to Fort Vancouver, CA
and New Mexico in 1843-1844
In 1740, owing to the refusal of the trustees of Georgia to allow the
introduction of slaves into that state, a number of Jews removed from Georgia to
South Carolina, and in 1748 some London Jews connected with the Da Costas and
Salvadors, who had sent a number of Jews out to Georgia, proposed a plan for the
acquition of a large tract of about 200,000 acres of land in South Carolina.
After considerable correspondence with the Colonial Office, through General
Hamilton, the project was dropped as a concerted plan; but on Nov. 27, 1755,
General Hamilton sold to Joseph Salvador 100,000 acres of land, situated near
Fort Ninety-six, for £2,000.
Twenty years later Joseph Salvador sold to thirteen London Sephardic Jews 60,000
acres of land for £3,000, and transferred 20,000 acres of the remainder to
Rebecca Mendes da Costa, in settlement of a claim which she had upon him. This
land was known as the "Jews' lands."
Prior to this, Salvador's nephew Francis had arrived at Charleston (Dec., 1773),
and purchased a great deal of landed property in the same neighborhood, some of
it from his uncle and father-in-law. A Jew from London, Moses Lindo, was one of
the chief instruments in increasing the indigo manufacture of the state. He
arrived in 1756, and spent in the following year £120,000 in purchasing indigo;
and as a consequence of his activity this industry quintupled in the state
between 1756 and 1776. Lindo was appointed inspector-general of indigo.

Meher Baba was born to a Zoroastrian family in Pune, India. He led a normal
childhood, showing no particular inclination toward spiritual matters, but, at
the age of 19, a short contact with the Muslim holy woman Hazrat Babajan
triggered a seven-year process of spiritual transformation. He contacted
other spiritual figures he called "the five perfect masters," and settled in
Sakori with Upasni Maharaj before beginning his public work. The name Meher
Baba, meaning "Compassionate Father," was given to him by his first
So protective were the Parthians of the minority over whom they ruled, that an
old Jewish saying indicates, "When you see a Parthian charger tied up to a

Ezra and Nehemiah introduced the Sukkoth Booth festival from Persia. It was
modeled after the Parsi festival of the gathering of the herbs, called,
Ayathrem. The Parthians introduced the Zoroastrian worship of the one God when
Cyrus the Great let the captive Jews return to Judea. For doing this he was
titled `Messiah'. Meher Cyrus was an Iranian, as was Ezra and Nehemiah, they
born in Persia.
"The Slavonic Josephus includes "the star of Bethlehem" infant narrative but
dates the story at 25 BCE, a full generation before the date as calculated in
Matthew. There are three passages about John the Baptist which go against the
conventional Gospel accounts. First, John came baptizing at the river Jordan in
6 CE, immediately before the tax revolt against Rome, led by Judas the Galilean.
(Note that Jesus was crucified for his refusal to pay taxes to Rome.) This John
also preached the same philosophy as practiced by Judas. "
The first all Jewish gymnastic club was formed in 1895 known as the
Israelitische Turnverein Konstantinopel (Israelite Gymnastic Association
Constantinople), it was formed by German and Austrian Jews residing in
Constantinople (Istanbul – Kushta) who were unwelcome at the German gymnastic
societies with their "Aryan – only" membership proclivities.Modeling themselves
on the very German organization which had barred them, they adopted the slogan
of the vigorous, devout, cheerful and free.Another milestone in the formation of
the Jewish sport movement occurred at a meeting of the permanent committee of
the Second Zionist Congress held in Basel in 1898.

After my death-experience in 1967, I became a follower of Meher Baba whose
father was a Parsi, or Persian descent. Did he descend from the Sons of Baba?
In 1987 I met with Baba Lovers from over the world where we discussed forming a
religion around Baba. If we had done so would we be called `Sons of Baba'.

Deuteronomy 24:21 When you harvest the grapes in your vineyard, do not go over
the vines again. Leave what remains for the alien, the fatherless and the widow.
Deuteronomy 26:12 When you have finished setting aside a tenth of all your
produce in the third year, the year of the tithe, you shall give it to the
Levite, the alien, the fatherless and the widow, so that they may eat in your
towns and be satisfied.No Christian minister has given a remote clue as to why
Jesus takes a whip to the money lenders and money changers on the temple
grounds. He does so in order to remind them that all Jews are slaves of God,
because God paid their debt and ranson when He brought them out of slavery in
Egypt. Jesus, as King, has traditionally gone out to the fields and is angered
that the Jews have not left gleanings for the poor widows and fatherless
children. He curses a barren fig tree, and it whithers to its root, it no longer
to bare fruit for the landlord. He then heads for the temple, more then likely
taking a whip from a driver beating a beast of burden.Rabbi David Kimche
(Provance 12th century) compares Israel to indentured servants, who are lifelong
slaves. Similarly, he states, Israelites, whom God acquired by redeeming them
from Egypt, should consider themselves God's lifelong slaves.
The Order of the Knights of Malta
(Images: Statues of Knox and Witherspoon in England. Stuttmeister tomb.)
"There are a "family" of Orders represented by the two titles, The Ancient and
Illustrious Order Knights of Malta and The Royal Black Institution. The history
is as follows;
At the turn of the century, in the United States of America there existed no
shortage of groups claiming to be Knightly fraternities of St John, owing their
origins through Freemasonry, or through the Black Association, ancillary to the
Orange Lodges, created for the preservation of a Protestant Ireland. "The
Scottish Branch of the Knights of Malta established a Protestant entitlement and
hegemony to this once Catholic Order that stems from the Knights of Saint John.
The Scottish Reformer, John Knox, is cited in this religious transference, he
given credit for converting Sir James Sandilands, the first Protestant Grand
"The Ancient and Illustrious Order of the Knights of Malta is a body of men
banded together to promote Protestant unity and to defend the Protestant faith
against all foes whatsoever. Cradled in the Holy Land amid the scenes of our
Savior's life and passion, it arrived at it hightest dignity when it embraced
the doctrines of the Reformers, and under the leadership of Sir James
Sandilands, the first Protestant Grand Commander, assisted John Knox in his holy
work in Scotland. Since that, the Order has been the faithful ally of the
Protestant Church. "
The Knights of Malta are connected to the Orange Lodge in which MP Bennett
"One Author in referring to the Freemasonry Knights, states "the Malta Order in
Britain was, in effect, "captured" by the Orange Institution." For example, to
be a member of the Black Association, a man had to be a member of the Orange
Order, and have first reached the Purple Degree. "
"In 1807, HRH Ernest Augustus, the Duke of Cumberland became the Grand Master of
the Orange Order. On 29 May 1815, the Duke of Cumberland married his first
cousin, Frederica (2 March 1778 – 29 June 1841), the daughter of Charles II,
Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. She was also the former wife of Prince
Ludwig of Prussia and the widow of Friedrich Wilhelm, Prince of
Ernest Augustus descends from the Frederick Wittlesbach, the Winter King of
Bohemia. He was the son of King George the third. He became the King of Hanover.
The Protestant lineage of the Knights of Malta has been scoffed at. However,
with my connection of the Rosemont/Rosamond family to Pope Adrian, who gave
sanctuary to the Catholic Knights of Malta, then this hegemony must be taken
seriously when one looks at the Swan Brethren. My niece, Drew Benton, descends
from John Knox via John Witherspoon and Jane Preston. A statue of John Knox
stands guard at Necropolis where many Scottish Protestants are buried.
My pilgrimage to South Carolina with Dottie Witherspoon to visit the ashram of
Meher Baba, was profound as she was recognized by Kittie Davies as a descendant
of Knox. My ancestor, Godschalk Rosemondt, was one of the executors of Adrian's
Will. Being the master of Leuvain where Adrian attended, he surely had an
interest in preserving Adrian's papal papers that disappeared after his death.
Did it contain specific instructions as to the fate of the Knights of Malta? Did
Adrian preserve the genealogies of these knights?
The late Grand Master of the Knights of Malta, Baron Marcello Maria Marrocco
Trischitta., said this about Pope Adrian VI, who may have tried to launch the
last crusade."After many difficulties the fleet of the Order landed at
Civitavecchia at the end of July.Adrian VI was alone in offering them refuge and
protection. A triumphant welcome awaited the defenders of Rhodes. The naval
squadron of the Pope formed a guard of honour for their arrival at the dock. The
Pope put the entire city at the disposal of the Grand Master in order to allow
the Knights a provisional home. This was a generous and unexpected gesture on
the part of the Order's host which gave great hope for the future. Fra' Philippe
de Villiers de l'Isle-Adam established the Convent and Hospital at Civitavecchia
and the Papal naval base became the first residence of the "Sacra Milizia"after
the loss of Rhodes"
I suspect the Suttmeisters have royal connections with Prussian royalty, and
have been looking at the Wittlesbach family, as well as the Hanovers.
It is of great interest to me that John Darby was associated with the Knights of
Malta as the Evangelicals are trying to establish their own hegemony via the
Plymouth Brethren. Darby may have taken the title 'Knight Templar'.
Above are two photographs of my daughter, my grandson, and I, in the

THE KNIGHTS OF MALTA
The Scottish Branch of the Ancient High and Exalted Order of the Knights of
Malta Through the Orange and Masonic TraditionThe Ancient and Illustrious Order
of the Knights of Malta is a body of men banded together to promote Protestant
unity and to defend the Protestant faith against all foes whatsoever. Cradled in
the Holy Land amid the scenes of our Savior's life and passion, it arrived at it
hightest dignity when it embraced the doctrines of the Reformers, and under the
leadership of Sir James Sandilands, the first Protestant Grand Commander,
assisted John Knox in his holy work in Scotland. Since that, the Order has been
the faithful ally of the Protestant Church.
The Orange Order (or Society as it was first known) was formed in 1795 to
maintain Protestant ascendancy in Ireland, and by its name celebrates the
victory of William of Orange over the Roman Catholic King James II at the Boyne
River in 1690. The development of the Lodges of the Society were heavily
influenced by Freemasonry. By 1797, a new organisation emerged intimately
connected with the Orange Order, the Royal Black Association of the Knights of
Malta. As with the Orange Order, with its system of degrees, so too, did members
of the Black Association progress in membership through degrees. The inference
by apologists of the "St John/Malta Orders" tracing their origins through the
Black Association, is that, Knights of Freemasonry formed the basis of the Black
Association. One Author in referring to the Freemasonry Knights, states "the
Malta Order in Britain was, in effect, "captured" by the Orange Institution."
For example, to be a member of the Black Association, a man had to be a member
of the Orange Order, and have first reached the Purple Degree.
Jessie Benton Fremont was a close friend of Louis Kossuth who was titled the
`Angel of Freedom'. Louis was a close friend of Giuseppe Mazzini who was a
leader of the real Illuminati. They were roommates in London for three years.
"Mazzini, French republican agitator Ledru-Rollin, and Hungarian patriot Louis
Kossuth founded the European Association, which sought to create national
republics across the continent. They met in London during the late 1850s"
He soon returned to England, where he lived for eight years in close connection
with Giuseppe Mazzini, by whom, with some misgiving, he was persuaded to join
the Revolutionary Committee. Quarrels of a kind only too common among exiles
followed. Hungarians were especially offended by his continuing use of the title
of Regent. He watched with anxiety every opportunity of once more freeing his
country from Austria. An attempt to organize a Hungarian legion during the
Crimean War was stopped; but in 1859 he entered into negotiations with Napoleon
III, left England for Italy and began the organization of a Hungarian legion,
which was to make a descent on the coast of Dalmatia.
During his leadership, Mazzini enticed Albert Pike into the (now formally
disbanded, but still operating) Illuminati. Pike was fascinated by the idea of a
one world government, and when asked by Mazzini, readily agreed to write a
ritual tome that guided the transition from average high-ranking mason into a
top-ranking Illuminati mason (33rd degree). Since Mazzini also wanted Pike to
head the Illuminati's American chapter, he clearly felt Pike was worthy of such
a task. Mazzini's intention was that once a mason had made his way up the
Freemason ladder and proven himself worthy, the highest ranking members would
offer membership to the secret 'society within a society'.
And that evangelical subculture has rotted the brain of the United States of
America.We have a big slice of our population waiting for Jesus to come back,
they look forward to Armageddon, good news is bad news to them.
When we talk about the Left Behind series of books that I talk about in my book
Crazy for God, what we're really talking about is a group of people who are
resentful because they know they've been left behind by modernity, by science,
by education, by art, by literature.
The rest of us our getting on with our lives; these people are standing on a
hilltop waiting for the end. And this is a dangerous group of people to have as
neighbors and they're our national neighbors and this is the source of all these
insanities that we see leveled at the president.One way or another they go back
to this little evangelical subculture… it's a disaster.
Maddow: … How do you work to move people off of that position? It doesn't seem
like facts are relevant in trying to move people away from these beliefs.
Schaeffer: You don't work to move them off this position. You move past them.
Look, a village cannot reorganize village life to suit the village idiot. It's
as simple as that, and we have to understand: we have a village idiot in this
country. It's called fundamentalist Christianity.
And, until we move past these people, and let me add as a former life-long
Republican, until the Republican leadership has the guts to stand up and say it
would be better not to have a Republican party than to have a party that caters
to the village idiot, uh, there's gonna be no end in sight.
The next thing they'll do is accuse Obama of being the anti-Christ and then who
knows what comes next? On and on it goes.
Maurick Castle and the Swan Brethren
(Images: Maurick Castle. Saint George Guild. Our Sweet Lady in Janskerk Church.
In 1430 my ancestor, Godschalk Roesmond, came to live in Maurick Castle. The
most prominent citizens of 's-Hertogenbosch lived here. How and why they came to
own this castle has caused confussion amongst historians.. I suspect only the
mayors of 's-Hertogenbosch lived here, and thus this castle was a Mayor's
Palace. The other requirement was that they were members of Swan Brethen. I
suspect Godschalk Rosemondt was the mayor of 's-Hertogenbosch and a high-ranking
member of the Lieve-Vrouwe-broederschap. Mairick Castle would have been an ideal
place for raising swans that were served up to the brethren who worshiped `Our
Sweet Lady' that we see being carried in procession to Saint Janskerk church.
Ghisburt Roesmont was the Church Master of Janskerk that was designed by Jan
Heyns, who appears to have been a Master Mason. Jan Heyns also remodeled Maurick
castle that was owned by members of the Heym family who were Zwanenbroeders.
Another Godeschalc Roesmont was a weaver who worked in Louvain's Guildhall in
1392, that later became Louvain University. Rosemondt was the executor of Pope
Adriaan VI's will. Roesmont founded the Pope's College in Adrian's home and
opened it to the sons of poor families so that the humble may produce leaders of
the Catholic church that was prone to sell its offices to wealthy and powerful
men. For this reason I suspect Adrian may have been the true father of the
Reformation, he later authoring a Anti-Reformation to counter Luther's radical
Members of my Rosamond family in England own correspondence between Erasmus and
Godeschalc Rosamond.who was sympathetic to this Humanist and Renesiance Man.
Both men may have known Hieronymus Bosch who was also a member of the the
`Illustrious Brotherhood of Our Blessed Lady' (Illustre Lieve Vrouwe
Broederschap). I am looking at the possibility Adrian and Rosemont are the two
figures that used to be in the foreground of Bosch's `The Wedding Feast at
Cana'. They survive in a Bosch drawing at the Louvre. The work we see is a copy.
I suspect the origianl painting was destroyed by Catholics who may have seen
Adrian as a member of the Reformation. The Rosemonts fought allongside William
of Orange a Zwanebroeder, and fled to England as Huguenots.
In the procession of Our Lady to Janskerk, and in Maurick Castle, we see members
of the Saint George Guild who were founded in 1359 as a miltita of crossbow
archers. Here again is a Rouge Knight on horseback guarding our Sweet Crimson
Lady who some believe is Mary Magdalene.
Rosemondt: A Humanist Renaissance Family
In 145o the Roesmonts came to own Wolfhouse, an ancient estate in Holland. Is
this the source of the wolf coat of arms seen in the Rebleuten guild, and in the
captain seals in Bosch? Did members of the Roesmont family found a guild at
Wolfhouse? The wolf name is found in two generation of Roesmonts. Rudolph

house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the Freistrasse. This is is the house
of guild in Switzerland whose symbol is the wolf holding a special knife to
harvest grapes. Weavers were once co-members of this guild.
The Miracle Statue of the brotherhood
The brotherhood was founded in 1318, by one Gerardus van Uden, though it is
possible that it existed before and that its existence was only formalised in
1318. Originally, membership was reserved for priests and monks, but it soon
opened its doors and allowed women and laymen. The sacred home of the
brotherhood was its side chapel on the north side of the St John's Cathedral and
Bosch had various commissions for this chapel. It was also the location of the
so-called "Mirakelbeeld", the Miracle Statue, a statue of the Virgin Mary that
was found in 1380, allegedly in a corner of the cathedral. Art historians
believe the figure was carved between 1280 and 1320, roughly contemporary with
the foundation of the order that would embrace and promote the statue's worship.
Some have argued the statue was not found, but "made public" by the order, so
that what was once private worship, would attract interest from the general
public. If so, they succeeded.
When Bosch was buried in August 1516, the ceremony was carried out with the
usual regards due to members of the order. What made him become a member of the
order? Some might argue it was his marriage, but his grandfather, Jan Van Aken,
had also entered the order in 1430. He is not only listed as a member, but it
also employed him as a restorer and painter. Jeroen's first entry on the
membership list is in 1486, as a "buitenlid", an "outer member", to become a
sworn brother in 1488.
Shortly afterwards, he was the guest of honour on the so-called swan meal, in
which a swan was offered – and apparently eaten. Custom required members to be
tonsured, which Bosch did, and he took to wearing the curious homespun garments,
a derivative of the costume worn by ecclesiastics. The brotherhood was also
known to perform mystery plays and other theatrical productions and it is known
that Bosch played an active role in stage performances and religious ceremonies.
Hence, the grotesque faces that are so prominent in some of his paintings, are
sometimes said to be inspired by the masks the actors used in these stage
"In 1724, my ancestor John ROSAMOND and his friend William Ray were arrested in
Abingdon, Berkshire, England for stealing a hat, periwig, 30 pounds British
sterling, five pairs of shoes, and a brown gelding. They were held in the gaol
in Reading, Berkshire, after their trial where they were sentenced to be exiled
to the colonies for 14 years hard labor. By March 1725, they were transported to
Newgate Prison and held there until they boarded the convict ship "Forward"
owned by Jonathan Forward, and captained by Daniel Russell. The ship set sail on
28 September 1725 from London via the Thames River. The ship arrived disembarked
at Annapolis, Maryland on 8 December 1725. We don't know who bought his
indenture, but he is recorded as being in CPT Beall's militia of Prince George
Co, Maryland between 1734-1737. By 1747-1765 we find John ROSAMOND living in
Augusta Co, Virginia and listed as a master shoemaker, owned land, paid tithes,
served in the militia, etc. His wife Sarah Wilson, a daughter of Thomas and
Elizabeth Wilson, arrived with her mother, brothers:"·
