Sliming John The Baptist

For forty years I have been naming my pets by flipping the pages of a dictionary. I look for the name on the page they put their paw or nose on. Kehinde claims he uses a similar process, he choosing BLACK PEOPLE off the street, in a intuitive creative manner, then he opens art books and has his subjects choose what they want to see their image – OVERLAID! Really? Why is Kehinde doing this? Well, he may not want to be accused of inflicting HIS WILL on people much poorer than he, and who are not famous a Art Star! The Fox Trickster does not want to BE BLAMED for defacing other artist’s work – and being a PLAGERIST! Also, the Black Fox is irreligious, and does not want to be accused of sliming RELIGIOUS icons. I see through his sinister game. This is a Gay Black Nazi drawing swastikas on Synagogues because Rabbis reject homosexuals. Did I get that wrong? Would he dare do such a thing? If he did, Obama would not have picked Wylie to do his portrait. Did Michelle see thru his disguise?

In truth The Trickster is engaged in ICONOCLASM!  Is he aware of this? Such was the fate of my kindred, who were Swan Brethren. They hired Hieronymus Bosch who included the Brethren in his Wedding Feast. I am looking at least one of my ancestors. Two figures were removed, one of the Pope Adrien.

In 1987 I wrote on a piece of paper “I am a Nazarite’ and Baptized myself. I was named after John the Baptist. Below is Wiley’s rendering of John. Is this a woman? Yes! The Gay Blade emasculated a famous Jew, who was kidnapped by the followers of Saint Paul, who cut off his penis lest he put it in a boy. John was a Nazarite, a member of a Jewish sect, and not a Christian sect. “Be fruitful and multiply.” is the Jewish God’s first commandment.

Wiley likes to play The Gay God by switching gender, but, the black race stays the same. Why didn’t the Gay Blade paint Obama as a woman, and really shock us all with HIS RELIGION?  Wiley has invented a religion, and has disguised it. No, its not the Dominion of the Holy Black Butthole! Butt, that’s a good guess! Alas, from me, The Gay Black King is getting the reaction he begged for. He has found his WHITE DEVIL!

 “When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. 13 But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John. 1He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, 15 for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born. 16 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.”

I declared I was a Pre-Raphaelite in 1969. Wiley was not born. The Brotherhood was inspired by the Nazarene Artists, who let their hair grow long. The Rastafan base their movement on the Nazarite vow, and do not cut their hair.

After becoming a Nazarite, I went on the internet and found other Nazarites. I sent the church of Shembe-Zulu a four page letter of introduction. I told them I am ready to do the work of the Zulu Elijah.

Above is a photo of me in my sister’s studio. I was going to be her first male portrait. Then, she had the film developed and freaked when she saw the energy around me. God made me a Nazarite. God led me to the Shembe Nazarite. These are the People God wanted me to be with. Samuel the Nazarite has been titled ‘The King Maker’. He was not a forerunner of Jesus, who I have proven was a Nazarite who called themselves ‘Son of God’ because they were separated and consecrated to God. They took a vow.

The work of Bosch is the wallpaper my Rosamond ancestors commissioned. When I feel besieged, or weary from my war with demons, I watch the Nazarite Chorus Line, and go in a trance. I did a version of this dance at a poetry reading.

Perhaps Wiley Coyote will find his father in Africa, have a change of heart, and do a painting of me among my beloved Zulu Nazarite?

Jon ‘The Nazarite’

Isaiah Mloyiswa Mdliwamafa Shembe (c.1865[1][2]2 May 1935), was the founder of the Ibandla lamaNazaretha, South Africa, which was the largest African-initiated church in Africa during his lifetime.[3] A self-styled prophet who claimed to have been sent directly by God, Shembe started his religious career as an itinerant evangelist and faith healer in 1910. Within ten years he had built up a large following in Natal with dozens of congregations across the province. Although the Nazarites were eventually eclipsed in size by several other Zionist Churches, the Nazarite church eventually had well over one million members before it began to splinter into competing groups in the 1980s.

Kehinde Wiley and William Morris

My different art experiences are colliding this week in an unusual way. This past weekend I went and saw the exhibition Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic at the Seattle Art Museum. And then, just today I taught my students about some of the designs that appear in William Morris’s wallpaper. When I got home this afternoon, I began to think about how some of William Morris’s work is referenced in a few of Kehinde Wiley’s paintings that I saw on display.

For example, the background design in Saint John the Baptist in the Wilderness is clearly referencing a William Morris print of birds and irises. As someone who loves William Morris’s designs, I would have liked to have seen this references explored a little more clearly. A review of this same exhibition from last year (when it was at the Brooklyn Museum of Art) also suggested that mentioning the origins of the backgrounds in Wiley’s paintings would strengthen the show.

The reference to William Morris was most clearly pointed out to me in the portrait of Mrs. Siddons; the pattern is clearly inspired by the Blackthorn block-printed wallpaper that Morris designed in 1882.

Rise Up Ye Africans!

“Trump insulted the entire continent of Africa in his comments as well, leading to fierce reaction on Twitter.

Kenyan activist and politician Boniface Mwangi said “how America elected a narcissist, racist, white supremacist to be their president defies logic.”

“Africa sends love and light to America,” he added.

South African journalist Leanne Manas tweeted “good morning from the greatest most beautiful ‘shithole country’ in the world!”

US President Donald Trump’s complaints about immigrants coming to the US from “shithole countries” prompted condemnation from around the world.

In the US, Democrat and Republican lawmakers criticized Trump’s comments as “divisive” and “unacceptable,” while Haiti, one of the countries explicitly named by Trump, summoned the top US diplomat to discuss the President’s remarks.

Trump’s remarks come as Haiti prepares to commemorate eight years since a 7.0-magnitude earthquake killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced many more.

As a result of the disaster, citizens of Haiti were accorded Temporary Protected Status, granted to individuals from countries where conditions such as war, natural disasters or political strife prevent citizens from returning safely.

Former Haitian President Laurent Lamothe said the “world is witnessing a new low today” and called Trump’s remarks “totally unacceptable!”

“It shows a lack of respect and ignorance never seen before in the recent history of the US by any President,” Lamothe tweeted.

As the US ambassador position in Haiti is vacant, the charge d’affaires at the embassy, Robin Diallo will meet with President Jovenel Moïse Friday, a senior State Department official told CNN.

Nepal, which became a Temporary Protected Status nation after an earthquake in 2015, said authorities were discussing their response to the matter.

The country’s Foreign Minister Bharat Raj Paudyal told CNN “we are aware of President Trump’s comments, and our ministry is discussing the matter.”

On Twitter, former Mexican President and longtime Trump critic Vicente Fox said the US leader’s mouth “is the foulest shithole in the world.”

“With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not. America’s greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?” he said.

David Miliband, president of the International Rescue Committee and former UK Foreign Secretary, said the “Trump Administration (is) leading a race to the bottom on refugees and immigrants that is a betrayal of America’s future as well as of its history.”

Trump insulted the entire continent of Africa in his comments as well, leading to fierce reaction on Twitter.

Kenyan activist and politician Boniface Mwangi said “how America elected a narcissist, racist, white supremacist to be their president defies logic.”

“Africa sends love and light to America,” he added.

South African journalist Leanne Manas tweeted “good morning from the greatest most beautiful ‘shithole country’ in the world!”

President Trump acknowledged Friday that he used “tough” language during a meeting on efforts toward a bipartisan immigration deal but appeared to deny using the term “shithole” to refer to some countries.

“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made — a big setback for DACA!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Spokespeople for the White House did not immediately respond to a request for clarification Friday. The White House had not denied Thursday that Trump used the vulgarity, first reported by The Washington Post and later confirmed by numerous other news outlets.

In a later tweet, Trump focused on remarks attributed to him about Haiti, saying, “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said ‘take them out..’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), one of the lawmakers who attended the meeting, said publicly in comments to reporters Friday in an interview aired on MSNBC that Trump’s denial was false.‘got-the-message’-that-he’s-not-welcome-here/ar-AAuAIvh?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp

London Mayor Sadiq Khan celebrated the news that President Trump would not be visiting the city, saying Trump had “got the message” from Londoners who “have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here.”

“It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the poor opposite of our city’s values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance,” Khan said in a statement Friday.

“His visit next month would without doubt have been met by mass peaceful protests,” Khan continued, adding he hopes that Trump “also revisits the pursuit of his divisive agenda.”‘got-the-message’-that-he’s-not-welcome-here/ar-AAuAIvh?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp

Nazarite Zulu of Drakensberg Mountain

One can conclude that God GAVE His answer when I asked if He came to America. Did God visit his Nazarites in South Africa where the comet Lovejoy is very visible?

After I declared myself a Nazarite, and baptized myself in 1987, I got on the internet and looked for other Nazarites. Was I all alone? I found Nazarites in the land of the Zulu that lie in the shadow of the Drakensberg mountain range where I want to be with my Nazarite brothers and sisters – beholding an amazing site, a pillar of smoke and fire like the one Moses beheld during the Exodus?

Is it possible a comet came and struck the earth causing a tidal wave that destroyed Pharoah’s army? The Drakensberg mountains is where the new Exodus arrives in 2012. I suspect the Nazarites carried the Ark of the Covenant on the Jubilee.

I wrote the Shembe Zulu church and introduced myself.

Jon the Nazarite

He had no formal education. During his youth he became famous as a visionary prophet and healer. He was baptized into the African National Baptist Church (1906), but later broke away to found the Nazirite Baptist Church (1911). Five years later he announced some revelations. He established a holy village near Durban and developed into one of the most prominent Zulu figures of his time. On his death in 1935 he was revered as a black messiah. His son Johannes Galilee Shembe inherited leadership of his church. Johannes – a Fort Hare College graduate – lacked his father’s charisma, and had trouble maintaining his leadership. Nevertheless, he still had 80 000 adherents in 1970.

The pillar of fire by night remained with them until they reached the promised land. The pillar of fire was a symbol of divine guidance and was also God’s way of supplying light for his people during the night.
The pillar of fire by night and cloud by day stayed with the Israelis from leaving of Egypt and arriving in the promised land the time covered about thirty eight years.

The pillar of fire produced enough light so they could travel by night. Traveling by night is cooler.
The pillar if light must have some unusual properties to enable over three million people and stock light to see were they were traveling at night.

Pillar of Fire by night
21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. 22 Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.

The Drakensberg (Afrikaans: Drakensberge, Dutch: Drakensbergen, “the Dragon Mountains”) is the highest mountain range in Southern Africa, rising to 3,482 metres (11,424 ft) in height. In Zulu, it is referred to as uKhahlamba (“barrier of spears”), and in Sesotho as Maluti (also spelled Maloti). Its geological history lends it a distinctive character amongst the mountain ranges of the world. Geologically, the range resembles the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia.

Any of you who have seen the popular documentary “2012” will know that when the catastrolypse strikes, worldwide devastation on an epic scale will ensue. Even a smaller catastrophe like a simple massive cometary impact could cause significant inconvenience to those living in the areas destroyed by hypersonic shock waves. What can you do to avoid either – and hopefully both – of these outcomes?
Where do researchers claim you can be safe?
Many researchers have posed their thoughts on where you can weather the death-a-palooza, then cheerfully emerge into a post-apocalyptic world not unlike the video game “Fallout.” Where do the authorities point us to?

The documentary “2012” pinpoints the Drakensberg Mountains in the KwaZulu Natal of Africa as the place to survive the world’s end. Although apparently even if you make it you will be forced to put up with Oliver Platt so the desirability of survival is debatable. But other top researchers also point to the Drakensberg Mountains as the survival spot of choice. This location was first popularized by the Belgian researcher Patrick Geryl, who conveniently has a book you can buy about it. Some other authorities specifically recommend a comfy concrete bunker, but made with not too much iron since it evidently “attracts thunderbolts.” Given what we know about the living conditions in the Drakensberg mountains, we will just hope the refuge from the apocalypse turns out to be somewhere with fewer roving packs of wild dogs and more Six Flags Amusement Parks.
