Drew Benton Meets Baphomet

This morning I found a photo of my niece eating faux grapes painted by her father at the Getty Villa. In Pan’s Labyrinth, Ofilia disobeys the Faun, who resembles Baphomet, and eats two grapes. The final door is opened in her disobedience.

The fight over Drew Benton began the day her famous mother ‘Rosamond’ died. We have won – the Rose of the World Artists who could not help but leave behind myriad clues that like bread crumbs lead creative souls to our Cathedral of the Rose Cross.

Accompanied by three fairy guides, Ofelia then completes the second task of retrieving an ornate dagger from the lair of the Pale Man, a child-eating monster who sits silently in front of a large feast. (The Pale Man probably refers to the Lamia in ancient Greek mythology.) Although she was gravely warned not to consume anything, she eats two grapes, awakening him. He eats two of the fairies and chases her, but she manages to escape. Infuriated at her disobedience, the faun refuses to give her the third task.

A draugr, draug or (Icelandic) draugur (original Old Norse plural draugar, as used here, not “draugrs”), or draugen (Norwegian, Swedish and Danish, meaning “the draug”), also known as aptrganga (“afturgöngur” in modern Icelandic) (literally “after-walker”, or “one who walks after death”) is an undead creature from Norse mythology, a subset of Germanic mythology. The original Norse meaning of the word is ghost, and older literature makes clear distinctions between sea-draug and land-draug. Draugar were believed to live in the graves of the dead, with a draugr being the animated body of the dead. As the graves of important men often contained a good amount of wealth, the draugr jealously guards his treasures, even after death.

Some draugar are immune to weapons, and only a hero has the strength and courage needed to stand up to so formidable an opponent. In legends the hero would often have to wrestle the draugr back to his grave, thereby defeating him, since weapons would do no good. A good example of this kind of fight is found in the Hrómundar saga Gripssonar. Although iron could injure a draugr, as is the case with many supernatural creatures, it would not be sufficient to stop it.[17] Sometimes the hero is required to dispose of the body in unconventional ways. The preferred method is to cut off the draugr’s head, burn the body, and dump the ashes in the sea; the emphasis being on making absolutely sure the draugr was dead and gone.[18]

When the medieval order of the Knights Templar was suppressed by King Philip IV of France, on October 13, 1307, Philip had many French Templars simultaneously arrested, and then tortured into confessions. Over 100 different charges had been leveled against the Templars. Most of them were dubious, as they were the same charges that were leveled against the Cathars[8] and many of King Philip’s enemies; he had earlier kidnapped Pope Boniface VIII and charged him with near identical offenses of heresy, spitting and urinating on the cross, and sodomy. Yet Malcolm Barber observes that historians “find it difficult to accept that an affair of such enormity rests upon total fabrication”.[9] The “Chinon Parchment suggests that the Templars did indeed spit on the cross,” says Sean Martin, and that these acts were intended to simulate the kind of humiliation and torture that a Crusader might be subjected to if captured by the Saracens, where they were taught how to commit apostasy “with the mind only and not with the heart”.[10] Similarly Michael Haag[11] suggests that the simulated worship of Baphomet did indeed form part of a Templar initiation ritual, but that this was a kind of hazing intended to convey the message that this was what they had to expect if captured by the Muslims.
The indictment (acte d’accusation) published by the court of Rome set forth … “that in all the provinces they had idols, that is to say, heads, some of which had three faces, others but one; sometimes, it was a human skull … That in their assemblies, and especially in their grand chapters, they worshipped the idol as a god, as their saviour, saying that this head could save them, that it bestowed on the order all its wealth, made the trees flower, and the plants of the earth to sprout forth.”[12]
The name Baphomet comes up in several of these confessions. Peter Partner states in his 1987 book The Knights Templar and their Myth, “In the trial of the Templars one of their main charges was their supposed worship of a heathen idol-head known as a ‘Baphomet’ (‘Baphomet’ = Mahomet = Muhammad).”[13] The description of the object changed from confession to confession. Some Templars denied any knowledge of it. Others, under torture, described it as being either a severed head, a cat, or a head with three faces.[14] The Templars did possess several silver-gilt heads as reliquaries,[15] including one marked capud lviiim,[16] another said to be St. Euphemia,[17] and possibly the actual head of Hugh de Payns.[18] The claims of an idol named Baphomet were unique to the Inquisition of the Templars.[19][20] Karen Ralls, author of the Knights Templar Encyclopedia, argues that this is significant: “There is no mention of Baphomet either in the Templar Rule or in other medieval period Templar documents”.[21]

“It is very likely that the Jessie Scouts assisted in the delivery of funds from Sheridan’s headquarters to Juarez in what Sheridan described as a “covert program” of supporting the Mexican liberals against Maxmilian’s army.”

“Sheridan began to send his “trusty scouts,” as he referred to them in telegraphed reports to Grant, into northern Mexico to collect information on the French army and their allies. “

“When the Habsburg “camarilla” repealed the new laws and sent an
army to crush Hungary, Kossuth raised a defense force which defeated
and expelled the invaders by May 1849. The Hungarian Parliament
dethroned the Habsburg dynasty in 1849 and elected Kossuth Governor
of the country. All that prompted the Russian Czar, the leading
member of the “Unholy Alliance,” to dispatch 300,000 soldiers to
help his imperial brother, Francis Joseph. “

Hungarian Officers, who fled the Habsburgs and Imperial Russians,
became members of John Fremont’s bodyguard and his wife’s ‘Jesse
Scouts’ who conducted clandestine opperation into Mexico and helped
dethrone Emperor Maximilan von Habsburg and install Benito Juárez as
the Mexico’s leader. Juarez and his backers were Freemasons, as was
Jesse Benton’s family. Jesse’s father, Senator Thomas Hart Benton,
was the author of Manifest Destiny, and thus was keen on keeping the
French, the Russians, and the Habsburgs out of North America. The
Hungarian Freedom Fighters were Masons and Fourty-Eighters.

My niece, Drew Benton, is California Royalty. Fremont invaded
California and took it from Mexico. Drew’s half-sister is named
after Jesse Benton. In the marriage of her parents, came together
the Freemasons and Orange Order who opposed Catholic rule. This
history may constitute the foremost history in regards to the
Habsburg’s contact with America.

Several authors, and the movie ‘The Davinci Code’ suggest Maximilan
is descended from Jesus. If this is remotely true, then one must
look at truly important history generated by the offspring of the
Son of God. John Fremont was the co-founder of the Republican Party
that was an Abolitionist party. Fremont authored the first
emancipation of slaves.

Did the Jesse Scouts protect Mexican Freemasons?



The Imperial Mexicans and the French had actively supported the
Confederacy and at the height of the Union blockade, the Mexican
port of Matamoras was providing a great amount of the Confederacy’s
imports. With their history of support for the Confederacy and the
movement of large numbers of former Confederate soldiers into
Mexico, Grant began to be alarmed about the possibility of renewed
hostilities from a Franco-Mexican-Rebel League that appeared to be
forming. Once this possibility was recognized, Grant convinced
Secretary of War Stanton and President Johnson of the potential
danger they faced of a renewed war.

Sheridan was ordered to place his strongest formations on the border
as a demonstration of their intention to prevent any moves by the
French, one of the world’s superpowers at the time, toward the
United States. At this time, Sheridan began to send his “trusty
scouts,” as he referred to them in telegraphed reports to Grant,
into northern Mexico to collect information on the French army and
their allies. Young, Rowand, and White were soon back into their old
Confederate uniforms as they rode across the Rio Grande, posing as
Confederate soldiers seeking to escape from the Union army’s
occupation of their home state.

Most of the reports of their scouting operations were lost or safely
filed away as they were all classified. The little that has emerged
from the research shows that multiple trips were made into Mexico
and, at one time, they were actively planning to kidnap the Imperial
commander in Matamoras, General Meijia, as they had done with Harry
Gilmor. Sheridan wrote to Grant that the loss of Meijia would have a
major disrupting impact on the imperial defenders in that border

It is very likely that the Jessie Scouts assisted in the delivery of
funds from Sheridan’s headquarters to Juarez in what Sheridan
described as a “covert program” of supporting the Mexican liberals
against Maxmilian’s army. What is known is that large amounts of
weapons were transferred from captured Confederate depots, as
Sheridan said, “30,000 stand of muskets from the Baton Rouge Arsenal
alone,” to Juarez’ army as they began to win victories. The
magnitude of this “covert” operation was enormous and Grant made
arrangements for General Schofield to take a leave of absence to
command all of the liberal forces in their war against the French
and their allies. Interestingly, Secretary of State Stanton opposed
their plans and worked behind the scenes to bring about a diplomatic
solution, going as far as securing the services of Schofield as an
emissary to Paris.

Late in 1866, possibly in December, Lt. Col. Henry Young escorted a
large group of veteran soldiers into Mexico where they had
volunteered to serve as a body guard for one of Juarez’ commanders,
General Escobedo. Sheridan later wrote that Young had done this on
his own, as a private citizen, and he, Sheridan, had loaned money to
him for the expedition. Sheridan also told two slightly differing
versions of this story.
