The SSS has been stamped on the forehead of the Illegal President of the United States who came to sit in the Oval Office thanks to Putin, who restored the flag of the Russian Monarchy symbolized by the two headed eagle and Saint George. Putin basks in glory having defeated the moral integrity of the Republican Party founded by my kindred, John Freemont and the Radical Republicans who were Abolitionists.
God hates liars. Every evangelical leader and ministers knows Trump is the King of Liars. So does every Republican in office. These are Putin’s People. These are American Slaves of Russia who is the enemy of the European Union. Every Republican who voted for Trump and Putin, are damned! They will not be raised up in the new temple in Jerusalem, because God has given me another blueprint. He can not believe millions of Christians could be so – DECIEVED! Satan is the Great Deceiver. For now, he rules the West.
The prophecy of Herbert Armstrong, has come true for the most part. Putin’s monarchy and church gives credence to British Israelism that I will put in a new light.
John ‘The Nazarite’
WASHINGTON – Speaking on Tuesday at a student activist conference hosted by the conservative advocacy organization Turning Point USA, President Donald Trump walked onstage in front of a presidential seal that, upon closer examination, appears to have been altered to include symbols representing Russia and golf.
The Washington Post first reported on the altered seal. As Trump walked onstage to a cheering audience, two presidential seals flashed on screen. The seal directly behind Trump was the authentic presidential seal. One of the seals, however, was not like the others.
Upon closer examination, the seal on Trump’s right includes a double-headed eagle, unlike the single head of the traditional presidential seal, and seems to resemble the Russian coat of arms. The seal has a complex history, notes the Victoria and Albert Museum, but one of the more common interpretations is that the two heads represent east and west, “an allegory sometimes for unity, and sometimes for absolute monarchy.” It could be a reference to Trump’s sometimes-controversial relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
On Wednesday evening, he was still working to determine who, exactly, was responsible.
“Somewhere there was a breakdown. I think it was as simple as a rushed move throwing up an image, and it was the wrong one,” the spokesman said, adding it was unfortunate that the faux seal drew attention away from the event’s star-studded lineup of conservative speakers. “It was an A/V mistake . . . it certainly wasn’t our intention.”
Employees at the Marriott Marquis say the hotel generally does not furnish images or video for groups hosting events there. The venue provides only the space and the technology, such as televisions and projectors. The hotel’s event manager who helped coordinate the summit did not return phone messages requesting comment Wednesday.
Richard Painter, who served as the chief White House ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush from 2005 to 2007, said the president’s staff should typically have advanced knowledge and command over images and video displayed at events where the president appears.
An eagle on a country’s coat of arms is quite common – this bird is as popular a national symbol as the lion. “He is the king of birds; just like the lion is believed to rule all animals, and he is associated with the cult of the sun,” Georgy Vilinbakhov, head of Russia’s Heraldic Council, explains.
The eagle has been emblazoned on the insignia of numerous empires. Roman legions held standards with the glorious birds when going into battle, and even today many countries have eagles on their official coats of arms. In the U.S., the Great Seal features a bald eagle holding 13 arrows and an olive branch. Meanwhile, a black eagle is on Germany’s coat of arms.
Russia’s eagle, however, is special – it’s double-headed, with each head looking in opposite directions. Still, this is not unique: Serbia, Albania and Montenegro also have coats of arms with two-headed birds. What’s all this about? Isn’t one head enough?
Heritage of the Hittites and Byzantium
The double-headed eagle is an old birdie, and its first images (carved in stone) are attributed to the Hittites who lived in the Middle East in the 13th century B.C. Since then, the double-headed eagle has appeared from time to time both in East and West. However, it was the Byzantine Empire (395 AD – 1453) that saw this bird soar to new heights.
Historian Yevgeny Pchelov said in a lecture on the history of Russia’s coat of arms that while the Byzantines didn’t have an official coat of arms, the double-headed eagle appeared on the emperors’ clothes and coins, symbolizing unity. “They wanted to emphasize that the empire united both East and West under its wings,” Pchelov explained. “The eagle has two heads, but just one body.”
Most historians believe that all the nations associating themselves with the double-headed eagle inherited this from Byzantium through dynastic marriages. “In the Middle Ages, you couldn’t just take the other country’s symbol simply because you liked it; it was a sign of an alliance, of good relations,” Pchelov said.
Tsars step in
That’s how Serbia, Albania and Montenegro got their coats of arms, and Russia followed suit. In 1472, Ivan III, Moscow’s Grand Prince, married Byzantine princess Sophia Palaiologina. Several decades later, in 1497, the first official Russian seal with the double-headed eagle appeared.
Embracing the Byzantine heritage was extremely important for Ivan. In 1453, the Turks had captured Constantinople, and so Russia became the leading Orthodox power. Thus, the wings of its own double-headed eagle began to cover both West and East.
“Before the Byzantine Empire ceased to exist, it always was perceived as a greater power. And even after its fall, Russian rulers wanted to associate Russia with the Byzantine symbol,” Yevgeny Pchelov explained.
Specific Russian features
In Russia, the double-headed eagle was always accompanied by another national symbol: a horseman slaying a serpent with a spear, portrayed on a shield. The horseman is a symbol of Russia’s capital, Moscow, and usually represents St. George the Victorious. However, since Russia is a secular state, this interpretation is unofficial.
The coat of arms has changed throughout history, with the eagle changing from gold to black, and then back to its current gold. Also, it has gained and lost the crowns over its heads. Currently, each head is topped with another crown ‘floating’ between them, which once more symbolizes unity. In its talons, the eagle holds an orb and a scepter – symbols of power and authority.
The current interpretation of the coat of arms is quite similar to those used in the Russian Empire. After the monarchy was overthrown in 1917, the eagle became white (maybe it just turned pale). With the Bolsheviks in power, the bird had a rest for about 70 years, and was replaced by the hammer and sickle. Since 1993 the eagle is back, still looking in opposite directions, and wearing three crowns on two heads.
