Revolutionary War Pensions
Posted on January 15, 2017 by Royal Rosamond Press
“NEW YORK — In the aftermath of President-elect Donald Trump’s closely watched news conference, a burning question remains: What, exactly, was in those folders stacked on the desk next to him? The campaign wouldn’t let reporters look at them. Trump never got around to discussing the documents. Some of the folders weren’t labeled.”
To: Congressman Peter de Fazio and Senator Ron Wyden
At his press conference, Donald Trump produced a stack of legal documents he would not let reporters see. He says the read, and signed, papers, turned his business over to his children who will get everything when he dies. Why not leave everything to the American People, now, and let his children make their own money, like most of us who don’t have a legacy? Many suspect there were blank pieces of paper inside. Is this a hoax?
I am asking my Congressman and Senator to put these documents in the public domain. There is a precedent for doing this, being Revolutionary War Veterans, and their Widows, had to submit papers to the United States Government, and, undergo questioning, in order to receive some of the first monies given by our Founding Fathers to our first citizens. This was the case of my kindred, Captain Samuel Rosamond, and his first wife, Ann Pressley, also spelled, Presley. There was even an instance where cash grants were given to families who were on the brink of starvation due to our desire to be free. Why not author a Trump Trust that goes to paying off the National Debt? Every three months Ivanka can recite how much debt has been paid by the Trump Dynasty. When Trump leaves office, he and his children would be free to make, and keep, as much money as they want. Who knows, Obama might give Donald an award – before he takes office!
In looking at my family tree, and these records, we see slaves being left in the Wills of brave men who founded one of the strongest democracies the world has ever known, thus these chained men and women contributed to the financial strength of our nation’s first families. They took care of the children and property of these fighting men. I suggest that anyone who can produce evidence they were the property of these world famous Rebels, be compensated. I suggest the First Family to be, offer a Freedom Bounty to the grandchildren of slaves. This amount can be determined by our elected Lawmakers, or, by all members of the Trump family who subscribe to economic incentives – and higher education! A thousand dollars can go to school supplies.
Because Trump and Putin have a great interest in Coats of Arms, any slave descendant of a family who owned a Coat of Arms, will be awarded a special Freedom Coat of Arms that will contain the image of The Liberty Tree, along with their family name.
Because the Republicans put before our Lawmakers one frivolous Bill after another, may I suggest a Bill be introduced that forbid President Trump from forming a motorcycle club modeled after the Knight Wolves of Russia, who are considered Putin’s storm troopers. The leader of the Knight Wolves wants additions made to the Russia Coat of Arms that Putin installed, that contains a SERPENT and TWO-HEADED EAGLE!
“And the President will wear no colors of any motorcycle club lest it appear his intention is to ride hard all over the countryside, and with other lawless men, terrorize the good citizenry.”
Elvis Presley was kin to President Carter, and may be in my family tree, along with Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor.
heraldry and vexillology, the double-headed eagle is a charge associated with the concept of Empire.

For those who follow this blog, they know I have gathered a force of wolves to fight the Battle of Armageddon. I predicted this battle will take place in cyberspace. A week ago after blogging about a Russian spy, my computer was hacked. For an hour it was being controlled by an invader.
How many came to believe I am mad, when I declared I was God’s Warrior-Prophet who will lead the risen House of Wolfing into the great battle for THE WORD OF GOD?
Putin is moving his “Night Wolves” on his chessboard he believes God gave him. But I am God’s because I took the vow of the Nazarite twenty-five years ago. I am wearing the Armor of God. Bring forth your champion, your giant wolf, and I will lay him low.
