Wolf Stuttmeister Comes To Belmont

“Dr. and Mrs. Stuttmeister left Thursday morning for Santa Cruz and Monterey, where they will spend the honeymoon. On their return they will make their home in Belmont.”

When I awoke from my Old Man Nap yesterday, I wept when I saw the words I composed to my friend, Ed Howard, as to why our quest to get funding for the preservation of the History of Black Oakland – was sabotaged – by white citizens of Belmont, who loved my families White History, but hated my White Integrated History, especially my Turnverein Forty-Eighter History. I have been looking at the real possibility Rudolph Stuttmeister was a Berlin Turnverein, and he fled to the New World before the Revolution of 1948? This very wealthy family saw what was coming. Were they conservatives who took the side of the radicals? Germans were killing Germans.

Rudolph is German for Wolf. My mother, Rosemary, told me the Stuttmeisters were Teutonic Knights who saved White Europe from the Huns. Both of my parents were pro-German. Vic told me he joined the Merchant Marine so he would not have to fight his people. Rosemary joined the WAVES and was a Patriot, but, she loved my father who knew very little about the Stuttmeister. He did not know they were kin to the Janke family and were buried together in a crypt. My father took his German history over to the dark side. Darth Vader is real for me.

My brother, Mark Presco, led the way into us being Vic’s Little Nazis. One of the secretaries that worked in Vic Presco’s Lafayette home, called him ‘Vic The Nazi’ – all the time – to his face! He let her get away with it, as long as she sat down with him on the big leather sofa and watched his World War Two videos, and listened to his keen mind pointing out how – and why – Hitler could, and should, have won the war. The world famous woman artist, Rosamond, thinks our father murdered that secretary. Her parents gave back $10,000 dollars of my father’s money they found in her safe deposit box. The DA of Contra Costa called up Vic and demanded to know who his private lender is.

“Go fuck yourself!” I heard my father say. And he slammed down the phone. Fitteen years later he is showing me where he keeps his pump shotgun – just incase!

“Two Mafia guys from back East are coming over to talk to me. They want in on my Defaut Loan business. They’re packing heat. I met with them once. They might get tough with me. Here’s my shotgun. You might have to use it!”

This was a highlight of his life, as these two lethal looking guys walk into my fathers living room, and one gives me The Look, and closes the door. I am not privy to their conversation. The Mafia is a Foreign Terrorist Origination. Last night I watched the head of the FBI talk about Foreign Actors hiding amongst the Armed Patriots who have pro-Nazi leanings, and, are neo-Confederates, for sure!

Then I saw a photograph of a woman who said Andrew Cuomo improperly touched her and was sexually aggressive with her. In Aril of 2000 I wrote a letter to Cuomo about the lending practices of my father’s private lender (who was a Getty advisor) that I compared to the movie ‘Paint Your Wagon’. When I told my mother my theory, she gagged;

“Stay away from these men. They are very bad men. They will kill you!”

My first post on the Belmont Historical Society suggested there be a celebration of the election of Kamala Harris, and, Belmont be involved in some way, because the DNA of the Stuttmeister and Jankes ended up on a Fruit Farm in Oakland, just below Juaquin Miller’s Bohemian and Japanese Poet salon. It was Black History Month. I believe this photograph was taken in the Oakland Hills. Dr. William Stuttmeister had a dentist office near SF City Hall that was destroyed because of the 1906 earthquake. They came to Oakland as refugees. William Broderick was an officer for the California Barrel Company and may have lived in his office in Dogpatch, because the family story has Alice Stuttmeister Broderick taking the rail and ferry across the bay, while Joaquin Miller held Melba Broderick in is lap. Miller hung out at the Montgomery building with all the Bohemian Artists and Writers. My mother told us these people were our “Bohunk” relatives. I began to wonder if members of the BHS were conservative Republicans who believe Trump won – and they hate Bohemians who helped steal the election? Watching the Sopranos was like viewing home movies.

I am working on a painting of two women carrying our electoral ballot to a Brand New Hill in The Wilderness. The Black Poet stops and reads her poem – ito the setting sun. This poem celebrates the coming into the light, from the darkness. My dream is to present it to the People of Belmont – who deserve better. I demand all members of the Belmont Historical Society – RESIGN! Here is the term the born on the Beautiful Mount….

RACIAL SIFTING!

When the BHS saw my beautiful White History, mixed in with my Ugly Black History, they conspired to invent and make a contraption, that would sift out Their White Gold, and throw the Black Dirt ito the bay, just like the tombstones of the Odd Fellows were used as a sea wall. Six thousand members of Odd Fellows – and their children – came to Belmont on the train. I am coming to Belmont on the train. When I get off the train I am going to be wearing a camel skin to girt my loins. I will be all but naked. I will have in my hand a wooden staff. I will be crying like one in the wilderness – “REPENT!”

I will come as Mad Woodwose. I desdend from Andrew Webb, a blood kin of Shakespeare. I see a Shakespeare Festival in Belmont – after the trash is thrown out!

The former CIA Director said he is embarrassed to be a white male. After I wrote these words to Ed Howard, I looked at the shame my parents inflicted on their children – with glee. The Book Buck blessed, says both my parents were pedophiles. As a white male who has attended Incest Survivor meetings, and has thirty-four years of sobriety, of course all my Brothers and Sisters will come with me when I come – there – one home of my genetic material – that has made much White History,

Here is the beginning of my historic fiction. When I thought of it as I awoke, I wept for the people of Belmont. How many citizens there are worthy to be associated with the Puritans? What have I done to be worthy? It was very difficulty to repent and turn my life around. When was being an American, easy?

Lady Mary Wilson Webb, inherited the job of  keeping the fire lit below deck. All those who had gone before her, had failed. The fire tendered in a square iron tray, held together with rivets, then filled with sand, had become the altar of the Pilgrims. It, and the black pot hung on a trident, was watched most of the day by the lost souls packed under the creaking and leaking timbers. Moving about was almost impossible. Everyone was frozen in their place. But for the brave excursions above, met by some tempest, and cold sea spray, the wayfarers relieved themselves in a vile oaken bucket that was too close for comfort.  Bible’s were taken out from under pillows when a lady went to tithe the Oaken Monster as they called it. Reading verses aloud, was the polite thing to do.

Ed’s brother offered to drive me to see my parents graves. I want Melvin to be with with me when I come to Belmont – to clean house. I want Ed with me. I want Kamala Harris with me. I want Harry and Meghan. I want to stand on a high hill above Belmont, while Amanda reads from her famous poem. I want there to be a blinding ray of light that pierces the darkest heart. I want to hear the cry of Wolf Stuttmeister as he enters New York Harbor.

“Look my son at the beautiful city. Alas – we are free!”

Amanda Gorman, the young Black poet who performed at President Joe Biden’s inaugural, has become an overnight star with her works shooting to the top of Amazon bestseller lists ahead of their publication.

Gorman, 22, recited “The Hill We Climb” at the inaugural, a poem inspired by the US Capitol attack touching on how democracy “can never be permanently defeated.”

She is the youngest poet ever to recite at a presidential inauguration, a role first given to Robert Frost by John F. Kennedy in 1961.

THE LIGHT ON THE HILL

I just googled Amanda Gorman and amm blown away. The name of her poem, is

THE HILL WE CLIMB

I began my painting ‘Guardians Of Our Voice’ on January 112, 2021 and wanted to complete it by the Inauguration so I can gift it to Vice President Kamala Harris upon her victorious return to Oakland, where we were born. The day after I put the two women on the hill, three rays of light came into my abode, and fell upon the canvas, and in the next two days I watched God’s Lightshow. He revealed to me that our Democracy is God Given, and we Americans are charge of the Holy Ark. I wondered about the third ray of light that you can barely see. After watching Amanda Gorden read her poem I found my Third Ray. I made a video of me doing this painting that begins..

“It’s…..The High Noon Show! Do you know where your muse is?”

On this day, God recognizes every Black Person the equal of the Pilgrims who came to America to own Religious Freedom. As a Biblical Scholar, I recognize that as black slaves were captured in Africa, and loaded on ships – the wanted to be free so they can go home. Moses said to Pharough

“Let my people go!”

This blog records my High Noon Prophecy. I never saw my shootout would come in the streets of Belmont. Let me speak for God when I say this, black people in America are above all others descended from those who came her to seek Liberty, because, they most resemble The Children of God. And I heard Amanda deal with this truth, by not lookig down on anyone, but, by turning her face into Te Light of truth, and being eloquent, by being – truthful!

We are living in pure prophecy now. Take some responsibly for getting what we all want! My Rosamond ancestors owned black people and worked them on their plantation in South Carolina. You don’t want to mess with these Scott-Iris Folk. Finally Graham got some backbone, and is backing Democracy!

I wondered if I was dealing with WASPs and did not post on my Wieneke kinfolk who joined the Order of Saint Francis that fled Germany. We supplied the genetic material for this order we gave refuge to. The Ralston home Stuttmeister and Janke got married in became a Catholic college that are found all over the world thus, confining them to the City of Belmont, is no reason to censor me and remove my posts. There are a lot of my kin n this group photo. The group of four are all Wienekes.

Let us salute all the women who lived in a monastery and became a Nun.

Notre Dame de Namur University was founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur as the Academy of Notre Dame in 1851 on 10 acres[7] in San Jose, California. The school was chartered in 1868 as the College of Notre Dame, the first college in the state of California authorized to grant the baccalaureate degree to women. In 1922, the Sisters purchased Ralston Hall, the country estate of William Chapman Ralston, founder of the Bank of California. The college opened its doors in Belmont in 1923.

Yesterday I discovered one of my great grandfathers founded a Turnverein Hall on Bush Street in San Francisco. This hall was a place one could go hear music and practice gymnastics. The Seamens Friendly Union met here, and the Vigilance Committee.  Plays were performed, and debates held. This is the radical root of San Francisco that I have traced to the Longshoreman’s Hall and the first Acid Tests.  The Turner hall offered music and other entertainment as an alternative to gambling and prostitution. My father was a Merchant Marine and would be pleased to know the first institution for furthering sailor rights met in the Bush hall.

All seamen are invited to attend at the Turn Verein Hall on Bush Street between Stockton and Powell Streets on Thursday Evening, January 11 at 7 1/2 o’clock to form a Seamens Society for the Pacific Coast.

The Vigilance Committee combatted corruption and violence. These were idealists that lay the groundwork for a city famous for it cultural revolutions.

If we merge mercy with might, and might with right, then love becomes our legacy and change our children’s birthright.

So let us leave behind a country better than the one we were left.

Every breath from my bronze-pounded chest, we will raise this wounded world into a wondrous one.

We will rise from the golden hills of the West.

We will rise from the windswept Northeast where our forefathers first realized revolution.

We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the Midwestern states.

We will rise from the sun-baked South.

We will rebuild, reconcile, and recover.

And every known nook of our nation and every corner called our country, our people diverse and beautiful, will emerge battered and beautiful.

When day comes, we step out of the shade of flame and unafraid.

The new dawn balloons as we free it.

For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it.

If only we’re brave enough to be it.

We are related to historic people somewhere.

Guardians Of Our Voice

Posted on January 12, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

Here is the painting I am working on. It is titled ‘Guardians of Our Voice’. I am inspired by the photo of the two women carrying the electoral votes that I just learned were being taken to the Senate Chamber, and not removed. I will have these women coming to the crest of a hill from out of the advancing darkness. They are carrying the Ark of our Democratic Voice. They are like Guardian Angels.

When the mob advanced on the building, Brown said those inside could hear barricades coming down before they were told by Capitol Police to rush down the stairs and into the basement. They were eventually sheltered in an office building.

“We were definitely anticipating (the crowd) getting a lot bigger, but we didn’t see any of the violence or destruction coming — I don’t think anyone was expecting it to go that far,” she said.

Brown said that staffers were warned by supervisors ahead of Wednesday to take precautions while entering and exiting the building and to be ready to spend the night if objections by Republican members of Congress to Joe Biden’s victory ran long.https://www.youtube.com/embed/yr_jC4rer4E?version=3&rel=1&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&fs=1&hl=en&autohide=2&wmode=transparent

A 19-year-old chamber assistant has shared the backstory of a viral photo showing her carrying a leather box of electoral votes ahead of the U.S. Capitol being overrun by a violent mob.

The picture was hailed as an example of the small acts of heroism by congressional staff to protect the votes before members of Congress and their staffs fled to safety, but assistant Virginia Brown has clarified that the photo was actually taken hours before the siege by pro-Trump supporters.

Black Franciscan Turners

Posted on August 29, 2020 by Royal Rosamond Press

Yesterday I suggested on the Black Panther group I am a member of that Huey Newton resembles Saint Francis. I then google the Secular Order of Saint Francis and discovered they came from the Alsace into Germany and dealt with a Cholera Pandemic. My kin are close to this order.

Because this group bid me to get in touch with my feelings in regards to the ragged boy wearing women’s shoes with the toe cut back, yesterday I decided to make David Hunt my Heir. He is the son of a Black Panther who died in a fire in Chicago. He is my daughter’s half-brother who I rescued in 1983. There were so many signs that said David was Heir to all our family history. Today the March on Washington was remembered. I got on my computer fifteen minutes ago and read the star of the Black Panther movie died.

I suggest the new Black Panthers be called the Black Knight Panthers. They will be in charge of the Post Office. I am turning the Rougemont Knight Templars over to David. I am going to contact the Sister of Saint Francis and see if they want to create a branch of Briarcliff college in Marin, preferably at the Buck Center.  This city was built by the Federal Government on land they must have owned, in order to build Liberty Ships to defeat our enemies. I would like to see President Biden and Vice President Harris honor the survivors and their descendants with a Metal of Patriotic Order. I believe the Buck Foundation owes much to the these workers and their poor kindred. More details will be added to this post.

Also, I would life to see the founding of The Marin Shipmates and a Naval College associated with the City of Marin that should be declared a Black Reservation. This land would be owned by descendants of African Natives into perpetuity.  I would like to see the Patriotic Brothers and Sisters become a special branch of the Navy and patrol the San Francisco Bay. David and Malcom are kin to my great, great grandfather, Commodore Hull, who was sent to fight the Barbary Coast Pirates that took many American Merchantmen as slaves, and sold them in a market. Isaac sailed the Enterprise to the Lydia and then fired cannon on the Caliph from the U.S.S. Constitution.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) made a video appearance at Friday’s civil rights event at the National Mall, delivering a call to action to demonstrators on the 57th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. delivering his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.

Harris told protesters in Washington, D.C., that the civil rights activists of the past would not let injustices against Black Americans stop them from striving for justice and equality.

“They would share in our anger and frustration as we continue to see Black men and women slain in our streets and left behind by an economy and justice system that have too often denied Black folks our dignity and rights,” she said. “But no doubt, they would turn it into fuel. They would be lacing up their shoes, locking arms and continuing right alongside us to continue in this ongoing fight for justice.”

Freedom On Liberty Street

Posted on September 20, 2017 by Royal Rosamond Press

My Stuttmeister ancestors came to New York and lived on Liberty Street where the Trade Towers once stood. I now suspect they were Ministers. They came to Chili, also.  Thirteen year old Victor Rudolph Stuttmeister applied for a passport when he was thirteen years of age. He had a high forehead, an aquiline nose, a large mouth, a sharp chin, brown hair, and blue eyes. Rudolph had six children and was a New York City Physician. Phillip, Mary, and Lizzie are born in New York City. Bertha is the first child to be married in California. This family were pioneers in San Francisco, Belmont, and Lagunitas in Marine County where Beryl and Leonard Buck moved after living in Oakland for many years.

STUTTMEISTER-JANKE.


One of the most enjoyable weddings of the past week took place at
Belmont, Wednesday morning last, the contracting parties being Miss
Augusta Janke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Janke of Belmont,
and Dr. Wm. Stuttmeister of San Francisco. The house was
handsomely decorated with a rich profusion of ferns and flowers, and
at the appointed hour was filled with the relatives and intimate friends
of the contracting parties. At 11 o’clock the wedding march was played
and the bridal party entered the parlor. The bride was attended by Miss
Alice Stuttmeister, a sister of the groom, and Miss Minnie Janke, a
sister of the bride, as bridesmaids, and Dr. Muldownado and Wm.
Janke, a cousin of the bride, were groomsmen. The Rev. A. L. Brewer
of San Mateo performed the beautiful and impressive ceremony under
an arch composed of flowers and greens very prettily arranged, after
which the guests pressed forward and offered their congratulations.
The bride was attired in a very pretty and becoming costume of the
crushed strawberry shade, and wore a corsage bouquet of orange
blossoms. She carried a handsome bouquet of white flowers. After the
guests had paid their compliments the bride and groom led the way to
the dining-room, where the wedding dinner was served and the health
of the newly married pair was pledged. The feast over, the guests
joined in the dance, and the hours sped right merrily, interspersed with
music singing and recitations, until the bride and groom took their
departure amid a shower of rice and good wishes. Many beautiful
presents were received. Dr. and Mrs. Stuttmeister left Thursday
morning for Santa Cruz and Monterey, where they will spend the
honeymoon. On their return they will make their home in Belmont.

A Rose Among The Woodwoses

Chapter One

Roseflower

Lady Mary Wilson Webb, inherited the job of  keeping the fire lit below deck. All those who had gone before her, had failed. The fire tendered in a square iron tray, held together with rivets, then filled with sand, had become the altar of the Pilgrims. It, and the black pot hung on a trident, was watched most of the day by the lost souls packed under the creaking and leaking timbers. Moving about was almost impossible. Everyone was frozen in their place. But for the brave excursions above, met by some tempest, and cold sea spray, the wayfarers relieved themselves in a vile oaken bucket that was too close for comfort.  Bible’s were taken out from under pillows when a lady went to tithe the Oaken Monster as they called it. Reading verses aloud, was the polite thing to do.

Tiring of the gory and bloody Biblical tales, that increased the Cargo Dread, the men brought out their bawdy jokes that they had memorized and gathered since their school days. The women pretended they ne’er heard a one. But, that guarded secret was soon out. And, a new kind of boredom set in. It was dreadful. Ones farting was amplified in the silence. The women ran out of perfume. Everyone got to know what a women really smelled like, including the women! Everyone was grateful for the occasional flying fish that was thrown in the pot, to cook all day, like temple incense.

The men ran out of jokes. Nothing was ever going to be funny again. The art of Mary keeping the fire alive was the highlight of their existence. You could hear the beards growing. In the glow of the red coals, the women felt like roses among the Woodwoses.

Two weeks at sea and another three weeks to go. Something had to be done.

“I brought my father’s book on rhetoric with me. Does anyone know it? My kindred William Shakespeare read it and was quite impressed. I saw him perform at the Rose theatre, on several occasions. He and my father were friends. They used to go the Bearbait Theatre and sit among the Protestant Spies. There were lawyers of the Temple present. Thomas called them the Roman Senators. There were horrific scenes of animal torture going on in the round arena. It was like the Roman Coliseum. I know enough about rhetoric where I can teach you. It will make the time fly.”

“For God’s sake, Mary. Why have you withheld this book from us!”

“My father was taken prisoner by the Inquisition, put in prison, and tortured. His books were ruled heretical, I don’t want to instigate spurious opinions about me and my father, for, I have nowhere to go to get away from you if you start in on that!”

“In Jesus’ name, relieve of us of our excruciating tedium! We are dying here Mary! Don’t be cruel!”

My Letter To Andrew Cuomo

Above is a letter I received from HUD in April 2000, in responce to a letter I sent Andrew Cuomo about predatory loans made by my late father and his private lender, Lawrence Chazen. It was Vic Presco, and Chazen, who hooked up Garth Benton with Christine Rosamond after learning they were artists. Chazen was a partner in the Plumpjack winery with most members of the Getty and Pelosi family. I am told HUD is about to found a Task Force On Predatory Lending that may have led to the subprime Mortgage Crisis.

I am a prophet, who saw this coming when I saw how my late sister’s artwork was treated like Deeds of Trust in Default, and now that Rosamond was dead, these Deeds are going to go through the roof, and those on the ground floor – who knew how Rosamond died – are going to make a killing.

John Harvard and Shakespeare

Posted on April 2, 2019 by Royal Rosamond Press

For the last thirty years I have been giving myself a College Education. If I show anger towards people I know, and those who have gotten to know me, it is they think I am mad to study all by myself. Thanks to the DNA TEST I took at Ancestry.com, I have not been – that alone! I have been – compelled, driven by unseen forces I could not elude! I did not knowwwwwwww, better!

Richard Burton and Liz Burton suffered from the disease of alcoholism, thus, it is wondered how much more stellar their careers would have been if they did not drink. A bad biography about my famous sister, the artist ‘Rosamond’,  wonders the same. There is no wonderment about me, because in many people’s mind, I never had a career! Yet, I own thirty-one years of sobriety on April 7th.

There is a very good chance John Harvard knew my great, great, great, great, grandfather, Reverend John Wilson. Both men wondered if the wonderful things they had done, would be remembered by their offspring – years from now. I have been given such concerns, but, I think the buck stops here. I carry on!

Some of you have heard me rant about ‘My Dumb Daughter’ which might become a play, or, an epic poem. I know many people can relate. ‘The Taming of the Un-Shrewd’?

I will explore the claim, that it wassssss – Reverend John Wilson who founded Harvard. He certainly had the pedigree! His son graduated from Harvard in 1642. John Harvard was born in Stratford-On-Avon, and may have known the Webb family, which is the only family line one can trace in order to be kin to William ‘The Bard’ for his three daughters, died. And, thus is comes down to me to carry on any and all family feuds? Of course! That makes sense, as to why I am tooooo clever to be in the good company of – anyone!

So, I study…………alone! There will be no crappy folding chairs put out on the lawn for my happy relatives who can’t wait to see what is coming to me. I have already got what I deserve!

I just heard that Harry and Markle are going to have a child in a few days. I feel this is my Graduation Day: for when they married in Saint George’s Cathedral, they took their vows not but ten feet away from where the bones of Reverend William Wilson, lie, under the cold granite, under a brass plaque, just he, and his wife, a great, great, grandmother to me.

So, it was God who kept calling to me, when it was my ambition to be a Drunken Scallywag, blinded on the squiggly road taken by the infamous, to ne’er land. I was a better and more loved Smartass when I had a bartender tending to all my ambitions.

“Come on, Mr. Presco! Let me pour you another drink! Stop putting on airs! All you did was pass a bloody DNA test – with flying colors!”

John Presco

“Smartass” tourguides[17][18] and the Harvard College undergraduate newspaper[19] commonly assert that John Harvard does not merit the honorific founder, because the Colony’s vote had come two years prior to Harvard’s bequest. But as detailed in a 1934 letter by the secretary of the Harvard Corporation, the founding of Harvard College was not the act of one but the work of many; John Harvard is therefore consid­ered not the founder, but rather a founder,[20][21] of the school‍—‌though the timeliness and generosity of his contribu­tion have made him the most honored of these:

Rev. John Wilson was born in London, England, Sept. 1621, and came with his father to New England in 1630. He graduated from Harvard College in 1642, and was ordained and settled with Mr. Mather at Dorchester. In 1651 he removed to Medfield, Mass., where he became a famous preacher, and remained there until his death in 1691. He died at Medfield, Mass., Aug. 23, 1691. She died at Braintree, Mass., Aug. 20,1725.

John Harvard (1607–1638) was an English minister in America, “a godly gentleman and a lover of learning”[1] whose deathbed[2] bequest to the “schoale or Colledge” founded two years earlier by the Massachusetts Bay Colony was so gratefully received that it was consequently ordered “that the Colledge agreed upon formerly to bee built at Cambridg shalbee called Harvard Colledge.”[3] The institution considers him the most honored of its founders – those whose efforts and contributions in its early days “ensure[d] its permanence,” and a statue in his honor is a prominent feature of Harvard Yard.
