“Judge not, lest thee be judged!” He who lives by the sword – dies by the sword!” These are Yin Yang sayings. For every action – there is a reaction. In drawing lines in the sand to create Greater Idaho, the righteous myth-makers drew the boundaries for the kingdom I founded November 13, 2016. How incredibly profound! There is a negative space where the righteous ones cast the dregs of society. This is the first Ghetto formed in the United States of America by MAGA Red Hats, who I suspect are preparing The Way for DeSantis who I have being born from the union of John Darby, and Maleficent. who went after Princess Rosamond ‘The Sleeping Beauty’. For this reason I rename Greater Idaho, Dark Rapture. You have to understand the Republican Party has been catering to millions of Rapture Ready Christians who want Big Governments all ovr the world – to be destroyed so Jesus will come again! This is why millions of Americans want the Democrat Party – destroyed.

In the coming posts I will take all White History away from the Rapturists – except for the history of John Darby. I am helping prepare them for the Rapture. That the formation of the State of Idaho, is ambiguous, involving a guy who wanted to found the State of Jefferson – is so eerie – as I have been involved in the renaming of Franklin Street.

I will use the top image a the flag of Fromondia.

The name’s origin remains a mystery.[9] In the early 1860s, when the U.S. Congress was considering organizing a new territory in the Rocky Mountains, the name “Idaho” was suggested by George M. Willing, a politician posing as an unrecognized delegate from the unofficial Jefferson Territory.[

In the legislature, Ehardt sponsored a bill that would required transgender athletes to play on teams corresponding to the gender they were assigned at birth. The bill has attracted significant criticism, both within Idaho and nationally.[5][6][7][8][9][10] Ehardt was interviewed as a part of the HBO series Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, in which she defended the bill.[11]

The comprehensive anti-ESG legislation was previewed on Monday at an event in Naples, Florida, featuring DeSantis. The plan builds off previous actions that the governor has taken and would prohibit the use of ESG in all investment decisions at the state and local level, ban state and local entities from any consideration of ESG in the contracting process, and block state and local governments from weighing ESG when issuing municipal bonds.

Environmental, Social And Governance: What Is ESG Investing?

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing is a strategy you can use to put your money to work with companies that strive to make the world a better place. ESG investing relies on independent ratings that help you assess a company’s behavior and policies when it comes to environmental performance, social impact and governance issues.

McCarter said the group’s Facebook page was shut down on January 6, after the Capitol riot, when the social-media company objected to six posts and labeled the group’s page as insurrectionist.

“When Facebook removed a lot of people from Facebook” after the riot, “we were one of them who lost our page, and we were not talking insurrection or anything,” McCarter said. “We’re strictly by the book.”

The name’s origin remains a mystery.[9] In the early 1860s, when the U.S. Congress was considering organizing a new territory in the Rocky Mountains, the name “Idaho” was suggested by George M. Willing, a politician posing as an unrecognized delegate from the unofficial Jefferson Territory.[10] Willing claimed that the name was derived from a Shoshone term meaning “the sun comes from the mountains” or “gem of the mountains”,[11] but it was revealed later that there was no such term and Willing claimed that he had been inspired to coin the name when he met a little girl named Ida.[12] Since the name appeared to be fabricated, the U.S. Congress ultimately decided to name the area Colorado Territory instead when it was created in February 1861, but by the time this decision was made, the town of Idaho Springs, Colorado had already been named after Willing’s proposal.

The same year Congress created Colorado Territory, a county called Idaho County was created in eastern Washington Territory. The county was named after a steamship named Idaho, which was launched on the Columbia River in 1860. It is unclear whether the steamship was named before or after Willing’s claim was revealed. Regardless, part of Washington Territory, including Idaho County, was used to create Idaho Territory in 1863.[13] Idaho Territory would later change its boundaries to the area that became the U.S. state.[citation needed]

Idaho, as part of the Oregon Country, was claimed by both the United States and Great Britain until the United States gained undisputed jurisdiction in 1846. From 1843 to 1849, present-day Idaho was under the de facto jurisdiction of the Provisional Government of Oregon. When Oregon became a state in 1849, what is now Idaho was situated in what remained of the original Oregon Territory, designated as the Washington Territory.

The Territory of Jefferson was an extralegal and unrecognized United States territory that existed from October 24, 1859 until the creation of the Colorado Territory on February 28, 1861. The Jefferson Territory, named for Founding Father and United States president Thomas Jefferson, included land officially part of the Kansas Territory, the Nebraska Territory, the New Mexico Territory, the Utah Territory, and the Washington Territory, but the area was remote from the governments of those five territories.

The movement to combine parts of eastern Oregon with Idaho has cleared its first legislative hurdle.

The resolution passed by the House State Affairs Committee Monday would authorize the legislature to begin talks with Oregon lawmakers on the issue.

So far, 11 counties in eastern Oregon have voted to study joining Idaho or have approved of the concept. State lawmakers in Oregon have introduced a similar measure.

Rep. Barbara Ehardt (R-Idaho Falls) has been one of the main drivers of the movement here. She said combining these rural parts of Oregon with Idaho will help promote conservative values, like opposing the legalization of marijuana.

“A lot of Idahoans are going there and getting drugs. That will be pushed hundreds of miles away,” Ehard said, noting the same could happen with a proposed abortion clinic in the border town of Ontario.

The handful of those who testified all supported the move, which they said would save them from the “dictatorial” rule of the Democratically dominated state legislature in Salem.

Mark Simmons, a former Republican Speaker of the House in Oregon, said Idahoans should consider him and others from that part of the state as “refugees”.

“We would like to be good neighbors to the folks on the west side while they continue with their social engineering experiments. Go ahead, just leave us out,” Simmons said.

But the movement does have serious logistical challenges. Lawmakers would have to negotiate how to operate and maintain prisons occupied by inmates who violated Oregon state law, schools, and a vast rural road network.

The Burns Paiute Tribe also occupies a federally recognized reservation in Harney County.

Rep. Vito Barbieri (R-Dalton Gardens) questioned whether Oregon might demand a payment for the acquisition of this land.

Rep. Judy Boyle (R-Midvale), another Greater Idaho backer, said she wouldn’t support anything of the sort.

“That is definitely not my intent,” said Boyle. “I don’t think any Idahoan wants to pay Oregon for anything.”

If both state legislatures agree on a deal, it would still need congressional approval before being implemented

New Nation of Fromond

Posted on November 13, 2016 by Royal Rosamond Press


The New Nation of Fromond will be born the day after Trump is inaugurated. I suggest we have a massive celebration in San Francisco celebrating the transfer of all America’s Creative Spirit over the The People of Fromond. Frodomond is a alternative spelling. Let us create a collective legacy that will be passed down for generations to come. The Counter Culture may not have suitable Heirs.

The Fromondese will be as Green as can be. More details are coming. Study the plans for Cascadia. John Fremont founded the West. I have read his French surname is derived from Fromond. He was the first Presidential candidate for the Republican Party he co-founded. We will take away Trumps permission to use our founding father’s name. Indeed, we will pass around a petition demanding the Trumpites leave our sacred Abolitionist Party. We will broadcast a Declaration of Emancipation across this Democratic Land, the very moment Tricky Trump places his hand on the Bible. The next day, women will march on Washington. We will reform the Jessie Scouts and make sure centers that cater to the needs of women are a safe place.

I implore you take me seriously. I am a wealth of Historic Permission, that will trump the vile permission you have already heard spewing forth from the Trumpster.

What is behind Ron DeSantis’s Stop-Woke Act?

Cas Mudde

The strategy behind this Republican battle is to fight off the federal state until they have re-established federal power themselves

<img src="; alt="New College braces for change, Sarasota, Florida, USA – 31 Jan 2023

Mon 6 Feb 2023 16.03 EST


Florida governor Ron DeSantis has been grabbing national headlines with his relentless attacks on so-called “woke”. In addition to his Stop-Woke (Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees) Act, which prohibits educational institutions and businesses from teaching students and employees anything that would cause anyone to “feel guilt, anguish or any form of psychological distress” due to their race, color, sex or national origin, he has barred University of Florida professors from giving evidence against the state’s voting law, claimed that professors at public colleges have no right to freedom of speech, and organizing a “hostile takeover” of the New College of Florida, one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country. But he is far from the only Republican politicians to attack the education system.

UCLA Law School’s CRT Forward Tracking Project has tracked 567 anti-critical race theory (CRT) efforts introduced at the local, state, and federal levels. According to the World Population Review, there are currently seven states that have banned CRT, while another 16 states are in the process of banning it. That constitutes almost all states with a Republican governor. While CRT is a highly specific academic theory that is almost exclusively taught at some law schools, the anti-CRT laws are incredibly broad and vague and target all levels of education. In my state, Georgia, House bill 1084 bans the use of so-called “divisive concepts” (eg race and gender) from teaching and, although it includes several exceptions and stipulations, these are so broad and vague that many teachers will simply stay away from these “divisive concepts”.

Although all bills explicitly ban the teaching of classic racism, ie that “one race is superior to another race”, they also ban the teaching of institutional or structural racism, ie the idea racial discrimination is not just the consequence of a few racist individuals (“bad apples”) but that it is structural, engrained in the country’s key institutions – from election laws to law enforcement. The idea is simple: if kids are not taught about institutional racism, and the white supremacy it upholds, they won’t question it later when they are voters. As Orwell knew, historical revisionism is always a project for the future.

Both legal professionals and laypersons have noted that “the bills are so vaguely written that it’s unclear what they will affirmatively cover”. This is not because of incompetence or oversight but by design. The vagueness serves, at least, two goals. First, and foremost, it makes the laws hard to interpret, which leads those targeted (from teachers to principals) to be extra cautious. Second, the vagueness provides deniability, both to the courts and to more moderate supporters. In fact, the prime goal is not for the state to censor teachers and schools but for them to self-censor. That is why it was only a minor setback when a Florida judge struck down the “Stop Woke” law, calling it “positively dystopian”. Across the state, teachers and universities had already started to self-censor. For instance, the University of Central Florida (UCF), the state’s largest university, removed all anti-racist statements from departmental websites, while several of its professors decided to cancel scheduled courses on race out of fear of breaching the “Stop-Woke” law.

Although most of the current laws are targeting public institutions in Republican-controlled states, they are part of a national agenda. In his first speech as re-elected House speaker, Kevin McCarthy pledged to fix “woke education indoctrination in our schools”, while former President Donald Trump has made the “issue” a priority for his 2024 campaign. Building upon the misguided ideas of his 1776 Commission, whose work was cut short by Trump’s lost re-election bid, the former president not only wants to stimulate “patriotic education” but also cut federal funding for any school or program that includes “critical race theory, gender ideology, or other inappropriate racial, sexual, or political content on to our children”. And, make no mistake, university administrators will not risk losing millions of federal funding for a “gender” or “race” class, not even at the private Ivy Leagues in solidly blue states.

The recent Dobbs ruling has shown once again that “states’ rights” are not a Republican principle but a defensive, and temporal, strategy to fight off the federal state until they have re-established federal power themselves. We cannot expect individual schools and teachers to fight this battle alone. We also shouldn’t expect the educational establishment to stand up for academic freedom, as was made clear by the recent decision of the College Board, which stripped down its AP curriculum for African American Studies to appease DeSantis.

To counter the highly organized conservative attack, we need a concerted and integrated campaign from all individuals and organizations that support academic freedom and liberal democracy, from the AAUP to the ACLU, and we need it sooner rather than later, as the damage is already being done – one in four of all teachers across the country have already altered their lesson plans due to anti-CRT laws. After all, as Orwell has taught us, how we see the past determines our future!

 This article was amended on 6 February 2023. An earlier version incorrectly said that House bill 1084 prohibited schools from “promoting concepts such as tolerance, mutual respect, cultural sensitivity, or cultural competency”.

“Political extremism is ripping our nation apart, and the two major parties have failed to remedy the crisis,” David Jolly, Christine Todd Whitman and Andrew Yang wrote in a Washington Post op-ed published Wednesday. “Today’s outdated parties have failed by catering to the fringes. As a result, most Americans feel they aren’t represented.”

Group of Republicans and Democrats form new political party to appeal to moderates

Brian Rokus – Yesterday 3:58 PM

There’s a new political party forming. See who’s behind it

“Political extremism is ripping our nation apart, and the two major parties have failed to remedy the crisis,” David Jolly, Christine Todd Whitman and Andrew Yang wrote in a Washington Post op-ed published Wednesday. “Today’s outdated parties have failed by catering to the fringes. As a result, most Americans feel they aren’t represented.”

Jolly is a former Republican congressman from Florida, Whitman a former Republican governor of New Jersey and Yang is a former Democratic presidential and New York mayoral candidate. The three will merge their political organizations into the new party, whose launch was first reported by Reuters.

The group cites issues including guns, climate change and abortion as those that could benefit from a moderate approach. The new party will also advocate ranked-choice voting and open primaries, the end of gerrymandering, and nationwide protection for voting rights.

“Sixty-two percent of Americans now want a third party, a record high, because they can see that our leaders aren’t getting it done,” Yang told CNN’s Brianna Keilar on “New Day” on Thursday in a joint appearance with Whitman. “And when you ask about the policy goals, the fact is the majority of Americans actually agree on really even divisive issues. The most divisive issues of the day like abortion or firearms – there’s actually a commonsense coalition position on these issues and just about every other issue under the sun.”

Forward is planning a national convention next summer and will soon seek ballot access to run candidates in 2024, according to the Post op-ed.

The party said in a news release that it would launch “a national building tour this fall to hear from voters and begin laying the groundwork for expanded state-by-state party registration and ballot access, relying on the combined nationwide network of the three organizations.” It plans to gain legal recognition “in 15 states by the end of 2022, twice that number in 2023, and in almost all U.S. states by the end of 2024.”

While Forward won’t be running its own candidates in this year’s midterm elections, it will “support select candidates in November who stand up for our democracy, even if they come from outside the new party,” according to the news release.

Jolly, Whitman and Yang acknowledged the clear lack of success third parties have had in the United States previously, writing in their op-ed, “Most third parties in U.S. history failed to take off, either because they were ideologically too narrow or the population was uninterested.” But they said that “voters are calling for a new party now more than ever,” citing a Gallup poll from last year.

“Americans of all stripes – Democrats, Republicans and independents – are invited to be a part of the process, without abandoning their existing political affiliations, by joining us to discuss building an optimistic and inclusive home for the politically homeless majority,” Jolly, Whitman and Yang wrote.

Asked by Keilar on Thursday why they believe their effort to create a third party would work, Whitman said, “We’re in a different time.”

“When you have 50% of the American people saying that they are registered independent … people are sick and tired of what they’re seeing in Washington and the fact that nothing major is getting done is frustrating them. We have big problems and we want to see them resolved,” she said.

A few independent candidates have earned national attention in their races this cycle. In Utah, Evan McMullin, who ran for president in 2016 as an anti-Trump conservative, is challenging GOP Sen. Mike Lee and has the backing of the state Democratic Party. In Missouri, John Wood, a former senior investigator for the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, is running as a “commonsense alternative” to the field of Republican and Democratic candidates for the state’s open US Senate seat. And in Oregon, former state Sen. Betsy Johnson, who left the Democratic Party last year, is a top contender in the open governor’s race.

Flight To Fromondia

Posted on January 6, 2022 by Royal Rosamond Press

I registered to vote as a Republican two weeks after President Obama won his first term. I did so in order to mend the division in our Democracy. Today, Obama’s Vice President, Joe Biden – now President – warned us all that our Democracy is in grave peril. I ran for President as a – Futurian. Did I see the future – as I lived it?

I am trying to find out if they moved th statue of my kin, Senator Thomas Hart Benton, out of the Capital Rotunda where President Biden spoke to today, giving a verbal thrashing of the Ex.

Here is a video I helped make.

  • Biden dismissed characterizations that his speech marking the January 6 riot anniversary was divisive.
  • “The way you have to heal, you have to recognize the extent of the wound,” he told reporters.
  • Trump said Biden “used my name today to try to further divide America.”

President Joe Biden on Thursday rejected the idea that his speech marking the one-year anniversary of the January 6 riot was divisive. 

“Does calling [Trump] out divide more than it heals?” a reporter asked Biden at the Capitol after he wrapped up his speech. “You talk so much about healing, sir, healing this country.”

“No, no, look. The way you have to heal, you have to recognize the extent of the wound. You can’t pretend. This is serious stuff,” Biden replied. “And a lot of people, understandably, want to go ‘Look, I’d just … not face it.”

“You’ve got to face it. That’s what great nations do. They face the truth. Deal with it and move on,” he added.

Biden, despite never mentioning Trump by name, sharply condemned the former president over his role in the January 6 riot in a 25-minute speech at the Capitol on Thursday morning.

“One year ago today, in this sacred place, democracy was attacked, simply attacked,” Biden said.

“For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election, he tried to prevent a peaceful transition of power as a violent mob reached the Capitol,” he continued. “But they failed. They failed. And on this day of remembrance, we must make sure that such an attack never, never happens again.”

The president went on to call Trump a “defeated former president,” and added: “His bruised ego matters more to him than our democracy or our Constitution. He can’t accept he lost.” 

Biden told reporters after his speech that he did not utter Trump’s name because he “did not want to turn it into a contemporary political battle between me and the president.”

“It’s way beyond that. It’s way beyond that,” he said.

Trump continues to lie that widespread voter fraud rigged the 2020 presidential election against him, though federal, state, and local election officials have found no such evidence. Officials have repeatedly said that the election results were fair and accurate, but Trump insists that he won the election.

Trump responded to Biden’s criticisms in a lengthy statement on Thursday, calling the president’s speech “political theater.”

“Biden, who is destroying our Nation with insane policies of open Borders, corrupt Elections, disastrous energy policies, unconstitutional mandates, and devastating school closures, used my name today to try to further divide America,” he said. This political theater is all just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed.”

Acting President and Presidential Candidate

On April 18, 2019, the day after my grandson, Tyler Hunt’s birthday, I announce I am a Republican Candidate for the Office of the United States, and, I am hereby Acting President. As my followers know, I am a Futurian. I can not say if I won the 2020 Presidential election because that would not be fair to the voters. Due to the extreme crisis King Bobo, Putin, and Sarah Sanders ‘Evangelical She-thug’ have brought into the world, I was elected by the Futurian Committee to serve as acting President.

I am amused at the Time Juggling Thug Wamp, William Barr, is performing with our Justice System. The Law is not a Time Machine. However, Dark Villains have tried to use it as such in order to escape punishment. Thanks to me, King Bobo, and his Thug Wamps, have failed to alter the Mueller report. Something went wrong. It was not supposed to happen this way.  The King has no clothing!

In the next two years, I will reveal what was really going on behind the scenes. This will take – real time! Until then, enjoy your shining hour in the sun!

God save the Future America!

Most presidential candidates are entitled to receive Secret Service protection from the federal law enforcement agency that also provides security to all U.S. presidents and vice presidents and their families. Serious presidential candidates begin receiving Secret Service protection during the primary campaigns and continue to get coverage through the fall election if they become the nominee. Secret service protection for presidential candidates is provided for in federal law.

Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about Secret Service protection for candidates.

The Lords of Til-Chatel and Rougemont descend from the Merovingians via Garnier, Count of Troyes. There is a Gendolfus in this line, and Nibelung “the historian”. Much of the history of the Franks is myth that influenced J.R. Tolkein. The Franks claim they descend from the Kings and Queens of Troy, thus the city names of Paris and Troyes.

Many authors claime the Knight Templars descend from the Franks, but, there is no evidence of this link – until now!

I can go anywhere with my genealogical research. Anywhere! The love story of Pharamond and Rosamond is at the very root of Western Storytelling.

I saw myself as Strider as a young man. I behold Rena as the epitone of the Rosamonds. My personal myth has no bounds. I have overcome the Western World!

I Am – The Lord of Atlantis

Posted on March 24, 2016 by Royal Rosamond Press


I am the Lord of Atlantis. I conversed with Amy Sargent for almost two hours today after she put a full moon in the painting she started yesterday. Christine Rosamond drowned March 26, 1994. I showed Amy my death after I fell on beautiful rocks by the sea. I introduced her to the Lord of the Rock, the Minoan Lord of Atlantean Crete. These are the Sea King of Atland. Tonight on Passover, there will be a partial eclipse of the full moon. I believe the Minoans fled to Egypt when Thera began to erupt. This is the source of Exodus. The Pharoah let the Minoans move into the Land of the Canaanites and ruled over these people. DNA studies show the Minoans came to Crete from Europe. I believe Samson was a European and the model for the Nazarites, and name that comes from “crowned”.  I believe the ex-kings of Minoan were anointed Circuit Judges. They were also ex-queens.

The sign of the return of the Atlantean King.


‘The Risen Lord of Atlantis’

“Jon, John, Jhon, Jan, are all the same name, though the pronunciation varies, as
the seamen like to shorten everything to be able to make it easier to call. Jon
– that is, “Given” – was a sea-king, born at Alberga, who sailed from the
Flymeer with a fleet of 127 ships”

“At this time Rosamond the mother, who had done all in her power by gentle means to preserve peace, when she saw how bad it was, made short work of it. Immediately she sent messengers throughout all the districts to call a general levy, which brought together all the defenders of the country. The landsmen who were fighting were all caught, but Jon with his seamen took refuge on board his fleet, taking with him the two lamps, as well as Minerva and the maidens of both the citadels. ”

In this study, Prof Stamatoyannopoulos and colleagues analysed the DNA of 37 individuals buried in a cave on the Lassithi plateau in the island’s east. The majority of the burials are thought to date to the middle of the Minoan period – around 3,700 years ago.

The analysis focused on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) extracted from the teeth of the skeletons, This type of DNA is stored in the cell’s “batteries” and is passed down, more or less unchanged, from mother to child.

They then compared the frequencies of distinct mtDNA lineages, known as “haplogroups”, in this ancient Minoan set with similar data for 135 other populations, including ancient samples from Europe and Anatolia as well as modern peoples.

The comparison seemed to rule out an origin for the Minoans in North Africa: the ancient Cretans showed little genetic similarity to Libyans, Egyptians or the Sudanese. They were also genetically distant from populations in the Arabian Peninsula, including Saudis, and Yemenis.

Republican Presidential Candidate

Posted on February 5, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

I predicted the demise of the Republican Party. I pointed out that the greatest crime about QAnon, is, it uses the alleged rape of children for political gain. I asked how many followers of Trump – do not believe the rape of children is true? The next day the sane world is entreated to the most vile testimony imaginable when Greene blames the free press for exploiting raped children – too.

According to Tom Snyder, all four Presco Children are victims of incest – and our grandchildren. Snyder says this – for profit – then walks away, he believing there is going to be a movie about the rape of children that will get him more money. Profits from the movie will not go to my two nieces, my late sister’s Heirs.

Above is a photograph of me with Springfield’s elected officials in closed session. In public session I presented my proposal to have Franklin Street renamed, Harry Lane. I know there is a fake WANTED poster put on a fake abuser site, that members of the City Council can find – if they google my name! I know I am a victim of incest and extreme abuse – including slavery! My parents invented demonic ways to torture their children they believed they owned. They took our friends from us and used them sexually. My father would call my lover in the middle of the night and put the make on her. I almost got shot confronting him. He admitted he ended up in bed with my niece because they had been drinking together – and she came on to him. She says he kicked down a door.

On February 1, 2020, I announced I am a Republican Candidate for President. When did Biden choose Harris as his running mate? I ran because I believed that I represented all the major problems in the world and in the Republican party that one writer says is going the way of the Whigg party. I championed the State Department and our relationship with Germany and England – that President Biden restored yesterday!

Today, I am imploring a top rate law firm to champion the plight of REAL ABUSED CHILDREN and bring a lawsuit against the Republican Party – FOR CHILD ABUSE. I have gone to Incest Survivor Meetings and began a self-help book in 1992 where the major theme of this book, is….THE COVER-UP DOES MOST OF THE DAMAGE!

The real handicap I have owned most of my life, is my ability to see into the future. I had a dream about the Oakland fire. I saw into the future when I announced I was a candidate on April 18, 2019. When did Biden announce he was a candidate? Look at all the incredible things that had to happen – to make my visions come true! The next day I ask if evangelicals are false prophets. I predict a two year dark age is coming.

“Will we allow the media, that is just a guilty as QAnon of presenting truth and lies, to divide us?” Greene said, referring to the conspiracy theory, which posits that Democrats are tied to a global sex trafficking ring that also involves Satanism and cannibalism.

Democrats were expected to move forward later Thursday with the vote to remove her from her committee posts.

House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern said that while Greene expressed regret over her remarks and claimed to have an epiphany that QAnon was false in 2018, many of her comments, including those endorsing violence against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, were more recent.

“I understand that Marjorie’s comments have caused deep wounds to many and as a result, I offered Majority Leader Hoyer a path to lower the temperature and address these concerns,” McCarthy said. “Instead of coming together to do that, the Democrats are choosing to raise the temperature by taking the unprecedented step to further their partisan power grab regarding the committee assignments of the other party.”

Get out of California and the Republican Party!

Gavin Newsom is under attack by fake evangelical rednecks who took over my families party co-founded by my kin, John Fremont. This is Destiny at work, because yesterday I declared myself a member of the Getty family and their allies. I debated about bringing Christine into this camp, and this morning I found great resolve. In having a after conversation with my therapist (Barbara) I made a note to talk about the second step in AA, and this adage;

“The best way to describe a dysfunctional family, is to describe a functional one!

I brought all members of my natal family together to discuss the falling out of OUR gifted members, both very talented. One is a world famous artist. Why not both of them? I can not reveal all of my revelation because the uncreative parasites that have devided us are wanting – just the money!

Huckabee says Newsom is about to lose California. I will prove all Republican Christians who voted for Trump lost God – and the party founded by my kin!

GET OUT – BLASPHEMERS OF THE FALSE PROPHETS! You have brought ruin upon the whole world!

New Nation of Fromond

Posted on November 13, 2016by Royal Rosamond Press


The New Nation of Fromond will be born the day after Trump is inaugurated. I suggest we have a massive celebration in San Francisco celebrating the transfer of all America’s Creative Spirit over the The People of Fromond. Frodomond is a alternative spelling. Let us create a collective legacy that will be passed down for generations to come. The Counter Culture may not have suitable Heirs.

The Fromondese will be as Green as can be. More details are coming. Study the plans for Cascadia. John Fremont founded the West. I have read his French surname is derived from Fromond. He was the first Presidential candidate for the Republican Party he co-founded. We will take away Trumps permission to use our founding father’s name. Indeed, we will pass around a petition demanding the Trumpites leave our sacred Abolitionist Party. We will broadcast a Declaration of Emancipation across this Democratic Land, the very moment Tricky Trump places his hand on the Bible. The next day, women will march on Washington. We will reform the Jessie Scouts and make sure centers that cater to the needs of women are a safe place.

I implore you take me seriously. I am a wealth of Historic Permission, that will trump the vile permission you have already heard spewing forth from the Trumpster.

Tens of thousands of people say they are participating in a “Women’s March on Washington” the day after President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated.

The event, which is publicized on Facebook and scheduled for January 21, has garnered national attention and is titled the “Women’s March on Washington.” Previously, it was called the “Million Women March on D.C.”

The 2019 #Calexit Independence Referendum

In the Spring of 2019, Californians will go to the polls in a historic vote to decide by referendum if California should exit the Union, a #Calexit vote.

You will have this historic opportunity because the Yes California Independence Campaign will qualify a citizen’s initiative for the 2018 ballot that if passed would call for a special election for Californians to vote for or against the independence of California from the United States.

Putin and His Holy War Man Killed God

Posted on March 23, 2022 by Royal Rosamond Press

The belief that God and Jesus want the eradication of Ukraine, is criminal lunacy that kills God! Here is the evil marriage between Church and State that the Republican are going for, that kills Jesus!

Seer John

“The wartime coalition between Putin and his patriarch is called symphonia, an ironclad alliance between church and state that assures reciprocal reverence, with neither institution presuming to dominate the other. Theologians have spent centuries bickering over the fine points, which have now impaled 44 million Ukrainians as the victims of a bloodthirsty land-grab that Putin and the Patriarch have packaged as a holy campaign to cleanse souls.

We need Frodo,” sighs Sergey Buntman, the program director for the now-muzzled Echo Moscow Radio, eyeing to the Hobbit who toppled Mordor in The Lord of the Rings as the only liberator with the mystical wallop to save both countries.

And Buntman was not being flippant.

Frodo of Fremondt

Posted on June 5, 2018 by Royal Rosamond Press

I have wondered about Rena Christensen’s almond eyes. I suspected she had Persian blood. Today, while looking at the genealogy of Frodo, I am convinced Rena is a Halfdan kin to the Parthians who came to adore the infant Jesus who has been compared to Mithras who my Frodo is kin to. Did these Parthians come from Toxandria, in Holland – on ships? The Armenian royalty is found here who begat Pharamond and Frodo. Did the prophet Mani come to Holland? There is a Helena Flavi who may be kin to Emperor Constantine. Why this mix with the Kings of Sweden. My ex-wife is a descendant of Eric the Red. The Rosemondt family of Holland appear to be Counts of Toxandria.

On November I founded the New Nation of Fromond, or, Frodomond. I foresaw what a disaster Trump’s presidency was going to be. Today elections are being held in California in hope to wash the Trumpire down the drain. I plan to turn back the hands of time just before Christianity was rooted amongst the Armenians. Mithras is the worship in most of th known world. The Tocharian’s are bringing this teaching into China. The Hittites, whom Alexander the Great employed as his navy when he invaded India, are setting sail for a strange land that lie due East. Frodo is on board.

Rosamonde is the Queen of the Parthians and Vikings in Toxandria. She heads due West to look for the Lost Kingdom of Yonkers, where live an advanced people whose island sunk under the sea.

It is my intent to establish free trade between California, Oregon, and Washington, and the known world. The religion that Mithras established will create neutral ground for millions of people. All the Peoples of the World can live in peace and harmony.

I will be contacting the Estate of Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, to see if they want to help compile my tribology, and produce a movie from my three books.


I just reread what I wrote this morning. I am astounded at how prophetic this post is. I can no longer deny that I am a prophet – of great renown! I elude to this all the time, but, I have been called a ‘reluctant Messiah’. I keep waving of a crown, every time it nears my head. This time I have no choice, an ancient crown sits upon my head. I have found a linage that reaches back before the birth of Jesus……….The Stendatsson. From then three kings, three magi may have come, to adore him. Did they bring a crown, a scepter, a ring, and a sword?

Rosomoni married Pharamond and begat Fredemund.

Meher Baba Wants Marin Ashram

In posting on the giant oaks of Belmont in Janke Park, I got a clear idea from Meher Baba that he wants the Buck Foundation to found an ashram to the great teachers from India who came to California.

Meher Baba & Giovanni Francis of Assisi

Posted on December 14, 2017 by Royal Rosamond Press

To discover Saint Francis was name John (Giovanni) by he mother, who I now consider to have been a Nazarite Mother after Hannah, Elizabeth, and Samson’s in-named mother, I might own proof there is a God. I am not offering a sublime rapture of spiritual feelings, nor do I seek any followers. My hand has been forced. God has taken everything from me in His Election. Job and Jonah and I have much in common.

My grandmother, Mary Magdalene Rosamond, visited the Ojai Center and made friends with members of the Theosophical Society that suggested Khrishnamurti was the Second Christ. I suspect Mary looked at me as a candidate.

The felling of Baba’s oak nearby, tells me there is a great spiritual wind and fire that is electing God’s People in a way I will describe to you. Consider Elijah being taken up in a Chariot of Fire.

Meher Baba and Saint Francis

Posted on February 10, 2014by Royal Rosamond Press

Greg 1974 Vicki

“Saint Francis of Assisi was the only one of the very few saints in Europe to become a Perfect Master.”

Just before Jesus died, he said; “I am thirsty.” The first thing I said when I came back to life, after seeing the Lord, was; “I’m thirsty.”

Consider Mary Dominica Wieneke and the Order of Saint Francis. In searching for the Blue Angel that appeared to my sisters while they slept, and Kay Coakley, I look to my aunt, June Rice, who took care of me while I had the hooping cough. I almost died several times. I was eleven. I had turned blue and my fingers were contorted when I came into the living room where my aunt Lillian and uncle Dick were sitting. Lillian screamed, and Dick started hitting me on my back.

When June would come to my bed in her nightgown, I saw a blue glow coming from her abdomen. She could not have a child due to some operations. She and Vinnie treated me like their child, and were my patrons. June was a devout Catholic.
I suspect this blue angel is associated with Mother Mary. I wondered if it was her ghost. But, I believe it is the Angel that came to Saint Francis when he died during a terrible illness, and came back.

I suspect I am the embodiment of Saint Francis. When I read about Baba coming to the true cave of Saint Francis, all of a sudden I had a vision. I was sitting in that cave. I heard the dry summer grass being stepped upon. Suddenly Baba’s face is beaming at me. I reached out my wounded hand and cried;


Not the energy around me (click on photo to enlarge) Christine and Brian took photos of me because Christine wanted to do her first portrait of a male. She developed both rolls, and was shocked to see this energy in every image of me. she did not do my portrait because of it.

Baba told his disciples not to touch him when he came out of the cave. Above is Vicki mocking me while I am doing my secret work. She is reaching out with her finger to touch me while I have my eyes closed.

Beloved Avatar Meher Baba’s Comment on Saint Francis of Assisi:

{1}. On another occasion, Baba revealed to Filis and Adele his four favorite Christian saints,
“My two favorite women saints are Saint Theresa of Avila and Catherine of Siena; my two favorite men, Francis of Assisi and Saint Augustine.”
[LordMEHER 11-3818]

{2}. Do you know how St. Francis of Assisi loved Jesus and became one with him? He loved him as Jesus ought to be loved; but in Francis’s group there was one who was a glutton.
Juniper loved Francis most, though he did not sit in meditation or think of anything. He gave more trouble to Francis than anyone, yet he loved Francis dearly. When we love from the bottom of our hearts we give all our good and bad, even our troubles; the lover gives everything and demands nothing. I give everything and demand nothing.
Love me like that and Baba is your slave. Even if you can’t do that, don’t worry. As long as you are mine, you need not worry. You are mine, that is why I have drawn you such long distances. If you can’t picture me, don’t worry; if you don’t love me, don’t worry; I love you.
-Avatar Meher Baba
[The God-Man Pg.257]

{3}. If you have the love for Me that Saint Francis had for Jesus, then not only will you realize Me but you will please Me.” -Avatar Meher Baba “Saint Francis of Assisi was the only one of the very few saints in Europe to become a Perfect Master.”
*** Meher Baba said Saint Francis was a Perfect Master.
AFTERWARDS he spoke with Ivy Duce, Don Stevens and others about Saint Francis:
Don Stevens asked, “Baba, you have explained in the Discourses, God Speaks and elsewhere that an individual cannot attain God-Realization without the aid of a living Perfect Master. Since there was no Perfect Master in Europe at that time, how did Saint Francis achieve Realization?”
Baba turned to Ivy and asked, “Have you heard of the ancient Sufi prophet, Khwaja Khizr?” She replied that she had heard Rabia Martin speak of him. Baba explained: “Khwaja Khizr now and then takes on a physical body if there is some spiritual situation that absolutely demands it. The Realization of Francis was such a case, because he had no Perfect Master to give him Realization. So, on the night we read about on Mount La Verna, near Assisi, during which St. Francis also received the stigmata [wounds of the Crucified Christ], Khwaja Khizr, in his temporary human form, gave this beloved Western saint the touch of grace which made him a Perfect Soul – a Qutub or Perfect Master.”
[LordMEHER 14-5011]

{4}. BABA WISHED to stay in seclusion for twenty-four hours somewhere in Italy and chose Assisi for the purpose because it was the homeland of Saint Francis. Baba sent Herbert there on August 1st in search of a cave for the seclusion [LordMEHER 5-1688]

{5}.As you know, I need none of you. I can work my will independently, but I have chosen, for my own reasons, a few to help me in that work. But these few need a love and faith as rare as that of Saint Francis [of Assisi]. Let that same love of his for Christ be your goal, and love me as he loved his Master.
-Avatar Meher Baba [LordMEHER 7-2332]
{6}.12th Way -LOVE…If you have that love for Me that St. Francis had for Jesus, then not only will you realize Me, but you will please Me.
[12 ways of realizing me -Meher Baba]

My reason* for believing there is a significant kernel of truth to these theories of Jesus living in India and being buried in Kashmir, is that my master, Meher Baba, said that was the case.

However, Meher Baba was also clear that Jesus was the Avatar of that era. The Avatar is God descended into our realm of cosmic illusion as a man, the ideal or perfect man. Thus he is both God and man simultaneously.

Jesus the Christ The author of this website appears to have a bias (we all have biases) that Jesus was a man only, and that any suggestion that he was divine or of divine origin is a matter of myth. I think his thesis that Jesus’s memory was embellished to make the new religion more palatable to gentiles who were already familiar with similar myths, is plausible. Again, for my bottom-line evaluation, I personally, as a follower of Meher Baba, turn to his explanations rather than to scholarship. (You of course are welcome to give your own weight to various sources.) According to Meher Baba, Jesus was conceived and was born “the usual way,” i.e., the virgin birth was a myth added later on. Jesus did not die from the crucifixion in the sense we usually think of death, but what he did was also not something possible for an ordinary man–he entered the state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi and then returned after the crucifixion, and went to India. If you study the life of Sri Ramakrishna, you will find that he often entered this State, as for example when something would remind him strongly of some particular attribute of God, or when devotional songs were sung in his presence. Nirvikalpa Samadhi is the state of God-Realization or Self-Realization. Jesus, as Avatar, would have had this state along with his ordinary consciousness of being a man, simultaneously. Nirvikalpa Samadhi is only attained by the real death of the limited mind and ego. Jesus already possessed this state of Realization (having been unveiled from it by John the Baptist). So in a sense, Jesus died the real death on the cross, not the faint shadow of it that we consider to be death. One could also say that Jesus was already “dead” in a sense; or one could equally say that he was already beyond death and in the state of being fully alive, so that it was impossible for him to die in the usual sense.** In this sense, whether Jesus took up his same physical body after the crucifixion or didn’t, would not change who Jesus IS one iota. He could take it up again or not take it up again and he would remain the Avatar. In the same way, he was the Avatar before his incarnation as well–“Before Abraham was, I am.” The entire matter is really beyond words to describe adequately, and it comes as no surprise to me how 2,000 years of interpreting and trying to codify it into a rigid doctrine resulted in what has come down to us.

Meher Baba also makes no mention of Jesus being married, but instead refers to him as being single. Comparing events in the life of Meher Baba, the story in the Tomb of Jesus website of the king insisting on Jesus having a companion, and Jesus finally agreeing to allow a woman to assist him, is plausible. However, his having had sexual relations with the woman is not consistent with the behavior of spiritual teachers who have attained this degree of spiritual advancement. I would guess it was assumed on the basis of gossip, by people who could not conceive of a man living with a woman and not having relations with her. If you study the lives of spiritual masters who have achieved this state of consciousness, you find that some of them marry and some do not, but they never get entangled in casual sexual relations. While it is true that spiritual masters of this calibre may have a significant other, very often even this is a chaste relationship. Such was the case with Sri Ramakrishna and his wife Sarada Devi, and one may interpret that it was also the case with St. Francis (who Meher Baba said achieved this state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi) and his beloved Clare.

My main point here is that one must be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Though it may turn out that Jesus physically survived the crucifixion, and it may also be true that his history was embellished in the manner of myths that had also been applied to other historical figures, this does not mean that he was not an Incarnation of God. It doesn’t necessarily mean that he was simply a prophet, a man, who lived through the crucifixion and then died later as an ordinary man. It also doesn’t mean that there aren’t important truths embedded in the myths that have been preserved as traditional Christian doctrine. It does mean that these myths contain distortion and embellishment, and that it will be a painful and disorienting process for traditional Christians to sort through it and find the truth of it. When the “dust has settled,” I think they will find that Jesus was and is more than traditional Chuch doctrine has portrayed him to be, not less. (Just as the true goal of religion, God-Realization, is much more than living in paradise forever in linear time.) What will emerge, I believe, is not that Jesus was just an ordinary man; nor that he was the only son of an anthropomorphic God. Jesus will finally be let out of both the little conceptual box of materialism, and the little conceptual box of Christian dogma, in which boxes he has been imprisoned for centuries.

For more information on Meher Baba, see my article, “A Tapestry of Meher Baba’s Connections with the West.”

*Another clue is that when Jesus appeared to the disciples, he appears to have had a body with the same wounds. It makes no sense to me that Jesus would have resurrected a body with the wounds. It further makes no sense to me that Thomas would have thrust his hands into the wound in Jesus’s side, literally, as per the Biblical account, simply because no-one who loved Jesus as the disciples did would have caused him excruciating physical pain just to satisfy their own selfish doubts. Therefore the account must be exaggerated (another clear indication of editing in the New Testament). Nonetheless, we are probably safe in assuming that this much is accurate, that Jesus’s body bore the wounds from the crucifixion when he returned. Under those circumstances, it is a much simpler and more logical interpretation that he survived the crucifixion than that his body was supernaturally resurrected.
**My interpretation of the crucifixion, based on studying Meher Baba’s life and teachings, is that Jesus was vicariously taking on the suffering of the world, so as to make the world’s load of karma bearable for us. (Meher Baba said that the Avatar did not take on the karma of the world per se, which I interpret to mean that he took on the suffering that resulted from the karma but not the karma itself.) The external crucifixion of Jesus was thus an outward and visible sign of the real inward crucifixion, of the inner spiritual work that Jesus was doing for humanity and for all of Creation. Thus the real inner crucifixion was much, much more than just the outward event of the physical crucifixion.

“Finally we arrived at Assisi at 5 P.M. to find a rather agitated Herbert waiting for us, because we were three hours late in arriving. After a rather restless and depressing week, he had made most successful arrangements for Baba’s retirement (which he tells in much better words than mine).

“Several kilometers from the town, up in the hills on the slopes of Monte Subasio, lies the famous Hermitage of Carceri built by St. Francis and his fellow monks. Below in the woods are several small caves or retreats where people go for meditation. Herbert discovered one of these half-protected by an outside wall. He had hidden this with branches so that it was difficult to find.

“This was one that was actually used by St. Francis himself. At 6:30 P.M. we had a light meal at the Windsor Hotel and drove in a car most of the way. The last part we walked on foot and, finally, scaled a low wall and plunged into the woods led by Herbert down an intricate winding path.


“The cave we found was an ideal spot and perfectly suited to Baba’s requirements. Herbert had thought out everything with such care that there was nothing left to be desired. Herbert is always very meticulous and careful in all he undertakes. The light was beginning to go a little as we entered the woods. It was just after sunset. I remember the birds and their song dying away gradually.

We settled Baba in and he told us that no one must look at him and, above all, not to touch him.

“It was arranged that Herbert and Chanji were to keep watch outside the cave during the night, to be relieved by Kaka and myself at 9 o’clock the next morning. Baba said that Kaka and I were to go to mass at 7 A.M. the next morning and then we were to kiss the Tomb of St. Francis. We bade them goodnight and found our intricate way out of the woods.

“After mass we shouldered our rucksacks and toiled up the streets through Assisi to the hills of Monte Subasio. As we got out of town, it began to get warmer and warmer.

“Poor Kaka was laden down, and not in such good training as I, so we had to stop from time to time for him to rest and get his breath and cool off. At last we arrived, a little late —about 9:15, and we were glad to reach the cool shade of the wood where we found Herbert and Chanji waiting for as after a wakeful night.

“Nothing had transpired and there had been no interruptions of the calm and peace which pervaded the woods. We settled down to our vigil outside the cave. Herbert and Chanji returned to Assisi to rest.

“The sun rose higher, but we were well shaded from the heat by the trees. An intense calm was everywhere, but the woods were alive with birds whose song was deafening. As if in memory of St. Francis, they seemed to throng around us. Butterflies were often near; several lit on our hands and bodies.

“Gradually it grew warmer, and even in the deep shade, one felt the heat of midsummer.

“Towards midday I heard sounds from inside the cave. Forgetting Baba’s instructions about not looking at him, I saw him stand up with his eyes shut and face the sun. He made strange noises. Not daring to look again, I lay quiet.

“At one o’clock he clapped his hands. We pulled away the branches from the entrance. Taking the board he spelt out directions, telling Kaka to go to Assisi and ask Herbert and Chanji to be with him at 4:30, but that I was to call him there.

“Baba came out of the cave but told us not to come near him or touch him. He walked about alone in the woods for half-an-hour and then went into the cave again.
