I Own The Ring Prophecy

There is much news about Tolkien.


New Tolkien Book, The Fall Of Númenor, Collects The Second Age Stories That Influence Prime Video’s The Rings Of Power
New Line Cinema


It’s a great time to be a fantasy nerd. Between “Game of Thrones” making a resurgence through prequels/spin-offs to the flagship HBO series — most recently taking the form of a Jon Snow series — and now “The Lord of the Rings” branching off into a spin-off series of its own, viewers can get their fantasy fill from whichever major streaming service they happen to be subscribed to. The one potential downside of this embarrassment of riches, however, stems from the fact that it can get pretty tricky to keep up with all this extra material!

“House of the Dragon,” for instance, is based on a much lesser-known novel by original author George R.R. Martin, while the Amazon “Lord of the Rings” series “The Rings of Power” isn’t even based on an actual book. The creative team is borrowing loosely from the appendices of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Return of the King,” which plays out like summarized historical bullet points of past events in Middle-earth set during the Second Age.

Luckily, fellow lore obsessives now have a new book to help them prepare for “The Rings of Power.” For the first time, readers will have the opportunity to purchase Tolkien’s retelling of the Second Age of Middle-earth in one single volume, according to The Bookseller. Titled “The Fall of Númenor,” the novel has been edited by writer and Tolkien expert Brian Sibley and comes complete with illustrations from longtime “The Lord of the Rings” artist Alan Lee.

What is The Fall of Númenor?

Where “The Lord of the Rings” focused on the villain Sauron’s reemergence as an existential threat to Middle-earth, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” will largely concern itself with the very beginnings of the Dark Lord’s rise. That entails the forging of his many Rings, his deception of humanity, and the subsequent fall of the most powerful kingdom in the world — Númenor, the island nation that the ancestors of Aragorn (played by Viggo Mortensen in “The Lord of the Rings”) once called home.

The Rangars and Sea Rovers ofToxandria

Posted onJune 5, 2018byRoyal Rosamond Press

In Dutch a Rangar is a Ranger, a Sherriff of the Shire. I have compared them to the Judges of the Torah and the Nazarites. When I climbed the rock at McClure’s Beach, that the setting sun sat upon, I was reminded of the Tower of Modor. We were ring bearers, come to cast the great elven ring into the molten sun. I was twenty years of age.

There is a hole in this rock, that looks like a radiant eye. My two friends had to carry me over the bridge of this eye. I had fallen and you could see my bone in the palm of my hand.

That was February 1967. Two years later I declared myself a Pre-Raphaelite. William Morris, and the Rossetti family were my kindred. I had no children.

“toxic waste dump”

 “nearly every Republican candidate who has won a primary, a Republican whether endorsed by Donald Trump or not, either pushes the Big Lie, is an election denier, or doesn’t have a problem with the move towards autocracy.”

Yesterday I looked deeply at my predictions and my run for Governor because I wanted to introduce the roots of John Fremont into…..The Historic Mix! You can conclude Fremont’s party is dead. I know allot about “denialism”. Is it a real word? Are evangelic leaders looking at the real possibility millions of young people will REBEL against THE DENIALISTS for generations to come – especially if THEY get away with it! What if Trump becomes president? He can only serve four years. Will the founders of Christian Nationalism take any responsibility for…..


Truth is a two-edged sword. The devious trick of claiming the Democratic Party is THE DUMP OF SATAN – has backfired! Why? Because Democrats, and the President and Vice President – ARE THE TRUE VICTIMS of an attempted theft. THE TRUTH has caught the REAL THIEVES inside the White House. What would you do – deny they are there? How many millions of Christians have PUT THEIR SOULS in the White House – while evicting President Joe Biden? You are electing yourselves….

de·​ni·​al·​ism | \ di-ˈnī(-ə)l-ˌi-zəm  , dē- \

Definition of denialism

the practice of denying the existence, truth, or validity of something despite proof or strong evidence that it is real, true, or valid

This depressing tale is the latest incarnation of denialism, the systematic rejection of a body of science in favour of make-believe.— Debora MacKenzie

He [Henry Puna] said climate change denialism jeopardised the future of Pacific countries: “Some are not willing to accept the stark realities.”— Ben Doherty

The problem of vaccine denialism is closely tied to the problem of information and authority in the digital age. People prone to skepticism can cover themselves with layers of pseudo-science and conspiracy theories that thicken and harden like papier mache.— Michael Gerson

Getting accurate information across in the face of this science denialism is something of a minefield, as there is evidence that attempts to correct misinformation may backfire, further entrenching the beliefs of science deniers instead.— Cathleen O’Grady

44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is “a liar” and “the father of lies.”

(John 8:44)

Satan is a murderer

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

(John 10:10)

Seems odd that ‘murder’ is inserted into a passage that deals extensively with the devil as a liar. Satan’s ultimate goal for every lie he tells is your death . . . your destruction.

Be self–controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8

Your total, complete destruction is the devil’s primary goal—his main weapon is to get us to believe his lies . . . many of which we’ll examine in the following weeks

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Time For Payback

One day after losing his bid for Alabama Senate, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), still licking his wounds over Trump’s endorsement snub, told CNN on Wednesday that he’s now open to testifying in front of the House Jan. 6 Committee, which had announced a subpoena for him last month.

  • Brooks said he has a “basic requirement,” however: That his testimony be public so people get the whole thing, not just “bits and pieces dribbled out.”
  • Committee chair Bennie Thompson (D-MS) told CNN that the panel has “redone” Brooks’ subpoena, which hasn’t been served to the GOP congressman yet because he was out campaigning (RIP).
  • Brooks declared earlier on Wednesday that he was retiring from politics — and took a shot at Trump. According to Brooks, the former president was “the big loser” in the Alabama GOP Senate primary runoff because he’s not “a man of his word,” has “no loyalty” and won’t take action unless it “enhances his wallet or his ego.”

The GOP has become a ‘toxic waste dump’ of ‘autocracy and denialism’: Bush strategist

Raw Story – Yesterday 4:05 PM

React492 Comments|77

By Matthew Chapman

On Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” former George W. Bush campaign strategist Matt Dowd tore into the current state of the Republican Party.

The problem, he argued, is that notwithstanding the recent losses of Trump-endorsed candidates in Georgia, the former president still has a strong command of the party — and even getting rid of him at this point is not going to course-correct the GOP.

AltEn toxic waste findings discussed Thursday

“I think we have to stop looking at the environment through the prism of whether or not Donald Trump wins or loses and how that defines the Republican Party,” said Dowd. “Georgia is an outlier in this. 94 percent of people that Donald Trump endorsed have won. That’s a pretty good record for Donald Trump. I think the worst thing is — which I actually think is far more dangerous — nearly every Republican candidate who has won a primary, a Republican whether endorsed by Donald Trump or not, either pushes the Big Lie, is an election denier, or doesn’t have a problem with the move towards autocracy.”

The current state of the Republican Party, continued Dowd, is “a little bit like Chernobyl.”

“What led to Chernobyl was bad design, misinformation and bad decision-making by people there,” continued Dowd. “Just because you remove a person that hit a wrong switch and contributed to the meltdown doesn’t mean you don’t have nuclear disaster that spreads. Even if you take that person out, Donald Trump, the Republican Party has become a toxic waste dump of this Big Lie autocracy and denialism. That’s, I think, the fundamental problem. There is not Republicans winning who don’t buy into a problem that the January 6th Committee is investigating.”

This comes as that committee is revealing new details of Trump allies’ complicity in the illegal plot to overturn the election, including Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).

Belle Burch and Blue Boy 2

Belle claimed downtown Eugene with the help of her thugs. I have long wondered if Donald Trump takes LSD. Last night I considered my last post being – my last! Then I read this…

“Despite incidents in downtown Eugene, locals say the area is getting safer”

Last night I concluded the world is too fucked-up for me to mend or heal. I concluded this in 1965, quit my job selling art supplies, got in my 1959 Ford, and – ended up living with Nancy in SF. Owsley gave us free LSD and we partied with the Jefferson Airplane.

I ran into Belle and her Whoville Gang in 2014. Alas, things are getting better – despite someone giving minors LSD so they can run amuck, and act crazy in Downtown Eugene.

Don’t go to Loma Linda Avenue! Have you taken……LLA? You haven’t lived until you do!


John Presco

“The EPD reports that on June 16 they responded to some calls involving minors who had apparently taken LSD and were being disruptive. Police said that at about 2 p.m., a 14-year-old girl was reported to be harassing people downtown. Police said the girl had apparently taken LSD and was running in and out of buildings and jumping in front of buses. Police say she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.”


“I know a chap, a friend of mine, who used to paint girls for magazine covers. The best class of girls, eleven feet high with eyes as big as eggs. Well one morning he put on his best suit, called a taxi and drove to the Tower Bridge, where he tied his legs together, put ten pounds of lead in each pocket, took a pint of poison, cut his throat, shot himself through the head and jumped over the parapet. They saw through this job at once, picked him out, pumped him out, sewed him up, plugged him up, and had him back to work in six weeks.—Gulley Jimson in “The Horse’s Mouth” by Joyce Cary.

EUGENE, Ore. — As summer arrives, the Eugene Police Department is ramping up patrols in downtown Eugene to curb crime and disruptive behavior.

The EPD reports that on June 16 they responded to some calls involving minors who had apparently taken LSD and were being disruptive. Police said that at about 2 p.m., a 14-year-old girl was reported to be harassing people downtown. Police said the girl had apparently taken LSD and was running in and out of buildings and jumping in front of buses. Police say she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

According to officials, about an hour later police responded to a report of two boys fighting on Broadway Street. The EPD says that when officers contacted the boys one ran away and the other refused to tell them anything. Officials add that when they caught the boy who fled, officers found that he was also on LSD. The 14-year-old was also taken to a nearby hospital, police say.

Some people, like Destiny Hogue, who works in the area, told KEZI she’s witnessed this kind of activity first hand.

“A lot of nudity, a lot of harassment a lot of property crime,” Hogue said. “We have people fall asleep, like randomly fall down and fall asleep and tweak out in front of our buildings.”

Hogue said this kind of activity scares customers away and disrupts sales. 

“It’s hard to keep business going when we constantly have to call someone to come get them off our business, or out of our business, or to quit harassing customers,” Hogue said.

Police said they’re planning to increase their presence during the summer months. Hogue is hopeful that will help the problem, saying she’s already seen it help within the past few months. 

“It’s actually helped tremendously,” Hogue said. “I’m feeling a lot safer walking in downtown than I used to.”

Eugene resident Joshua Burstein, who has lived in the area for 14 years said he’s looking forward to coming downtown more this summer. He believes the area is becoming safer and hopes more people will enjoy what downtown has to offer. 

“I know there is a lot of fear around crime, especially in downtown, I know there have been incidents, but I really think we’re on an upswing,” Burstein said. “The more people come downtown and enjoy downtown, the safer we all will feel.”

Police are seeking tips on whoever is providing LSD to minors. Anyone with information on these incidents is asked to contact the EPD at their non-emergency line at 541-682-5111.

‘A dangerous cancer’: fourth hearing revealed the human cost of Trump’s delusion

David Smith in Washington – Yesterday 10:31 PM

Donald Trump was the most powerful man in the world. But he was also a paranoid fantasist who did not care how his lies destroyed people’s lives.

That was the picture of the former US president that came into focus with startling clarity at Tuesday’s hearing of the congressional committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.

Related: January 6 hearings: state officials testify on Trump pressure to discredit election

Dead people, shredded ballots and a USB drive that was in fact a ginger mint were all part of the delusional narrative of election fraud peddled by Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani. They would have been as comical as flat-earthers but for the way they posed a danger to both individual citizens and American democracy.

“The president’s lie was and is a dangerous cancer on the body politic,” committee member Adam Schiff said at the hearing into how Trump pressured state officials to overturn overturn results.

It was worth remembering that Trump once boasted that he had passed a cognitive test by reciting the words, “Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,” in the right order. And that, according to the Washington Post, he made 30,573 false or misleading claims during his four-year presidency.

Even on Tuesday, he was repeating the biggest lie of all. Just before the hearing he issued a statement claiming that witness Rusty Bowers, the speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives, told him “the election was rigged and I won Arizona”.

Bowers, a Republican who had wanted Trump to win the election, told the committee that this was false: “Anyone, anywhere, anytime I said the election was rigged, that would not be true.”

Bowers also recalled a conversation with Giuliani and lawyer Jenna Ellis about allegations of voter fraud in Arizona. In a phrase that captured the president’s own mindset, Giuliani allegedly said: “We’ve got lots of theories but we just don’t have the evidence.”

It’s turned my life upside down. I no longer give out my business card. I don’t transfer calls … I just don’t do nothing anymore. I don’t want to go anywhere. I second-guess everything that I doWandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss

But the centerpiece of the big lie is Georgia, which Trump narrowly lost and which became his all-consuming obsession for wild conspiracy theories.

The committee heard testimony from its secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, and his deputy Gabe Sterling, who observed that competing against Trump’s false statements was like a “shovel trying to empty the ocean. I even had family members I had to argue with about some of these things.”

The Cannon Caucus Room resounded with Trump’s own voice from a 67-minute phone call with Raffensperger in which the president claimed the people of Georgia “know” he won the state by hundreds of thousands of voters.

Not true, Raffensperger told the committee definitively, explaining that Trump had “come up short”.

One by one, Trump could be heard making ludicrous assertions without foundation. One by one, Raffensperger and Sterling calmly demolished them.

The president was heard claiming that votes were “in what looked to be suitcases or trunks, suitcases but they weren’t in voter boxes”. Schiff asked: “Were they just the ordinary containers that are used by election workers?” Sterling testified: “They’re standard ballot carriers that allow for seals to be put on them so they’re tamper proof.”

Trump went on during the call: “But they dropped a lot of votes in there late at night. You know that, Brad.” Raffensperger told the committee: “There were no additional ballots accepted after 7pm.”

The president insisted: “The other thing, dead people. So dead people voted and I think the number is close to 5,000 people. And they went to obituaries. They went to all sorts of methods to come up with an accurate number and a minimum is close to about 5,000 voters.”

Raffensperger observed: “No, it’s not accurate … We found two dead people when I wrote my letter to Congress that’s dated January 6 and subsequent to that we found two more. That’s one, two, three, four people, not 4,000.”

More sinister yet, Trump claimed that election workers had been shredding ballots, “a criminal offense” that could put Raffensperger at risk. “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.”

Raffensperger told the hearing: “What I knew is we didn’t have any votes to find.”

Tuesday’s hearing spelled out how the big lie has caused hurt way beyond Washington on 6 January 2021. Trump told Raffensperger on the call: “When you talk about no criminality, I think it’s very dangerous for you to say that.”

The Georgia secretary of state took this as a threat. And sure enough, his family was targeted by Trump supporters.

“My email, my cell phone was doxxed and I was getting texts all over the country and then eventually my wife started getting texts. Hers typically came in as sexualized texts which were disgusting … They started going after her I think just to probably put pressure on me: ‘Why don’t you quit and walk away.’”

He was far from alone.

In a deposition, Michigan secretary of state Jocelyn Benson talked about how her “stomach sunk” when she heard the sounds of protesters outside her home one night when she was putting her child to bed. She wondered if they had guns or were going to attack her house. “That was the scariest moment,” Benson said.

But no story better illustrated the callousness of Trump’s assault than Georgia election workers Wandrea “Shaye” Moss and her mother Ruby Freeman, two African American women described by committee chairman Bennie Thompson as “unsung heroes” of democracy.

Giuliani accused the pair of passing a USB drive to each other; Moss told the committee that her mother had actually been handing her a ginger mint. With astonishing cruelty, Trump was heard in a phone call describing Freeman as “a professional vote scammer and hustler”.

It was false but it was the cue for an onslaught of racist hatred from Trump supporters. Moss, nervous and at times shaking, recalled: “A lot of threats wishing death upon me. Telling me that, you know, I’ll be in jail with my mother and saying things like, ‘Be glad it’s 2020 and not 1920.”

Moss, who left her position, added in wrenching testimony: “It’s turned my life upside down. I no longer give out my business card. I don’t transfer calls. I don’t want anyone knowing my name. I’ve gained about 60 pounds. I just don’t do nothing anymore. I don’t want to go anywhere. I second-guess everything that I do.”

Her mother Ruby Freeman said in a deposition: “I’ve lost my name, and I’ve lost my reputation. I’ve lost my sense of security – all because a group of people … scapegoat[ed] me and my daughter, Shaye, to push their own lies about how the presidential election was stolen.”

At the end of his call to Raffensperger, Trump could be heard saying: “It takes a little while but let the truth comes out.”

Now, finally, the truth is coming out, but not the one that occupies his fantasies.

Oregon’s Own Antichrist vs. MADA

Posted on January 14, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

When I went to Wayne Morse Square dressed as The Antichrist, I did so trying to get my courage back after being threatened by the Alleybellites and Kimites. In looking at the video I took, talking to a Three-Percenter, I wondered why he made no comment about me saying – I am The Antichrist. After the Storm The Dome Day, I realized there’s eight or ten guys (and a woman?) who claim to be the Antichrist – at every event! I thought I was original! My Light Sabre did get some attention.

In the God Gun Liberty video, it appears I might get in a fight with a young man wearing a MADA cap. He got punched in the nose when the T-Mob pushed people around to get to the podium and mic – that the Gay Pride Day folks refused to hand over. A Lesbian socked him in the nose – and drew blood.

It is now being reported Lawmakers helped the T-Mob in Oregon, and at the Dome, that looks like a scene out of Gone With The Wind. As I talk to an armed man, Belle’s old boyfriend (who changed his name to Marla) danced half-naked in the background. The Crazy are legion at Trump rallies. This is what he meant by “wild time”. Consider the source. Trump is not sorry – at all! His office is just another disguise for the real Antichrist – who might start a nuclear war.

“With less than seven days remaining in his presidency, Trump’s inner circle is shrinking, offices in his White House are emptying, and the president is lashing out at some of those who remain. He is angry that his allies have not mounted a more forceful defense of his incitement of the mob that stormed the Capitol last week, advisers and associates said.”

Springfield Witch Hunt

Posted on October 18, 2018 by Royal Rosamond Press

Here is Gang of Six in action. All of them agree they have a right to harass me because I am mentally ill. Beatdown Boy, Krista’s live in lover, says I should be locked up due to being severely mentally ill. He did not come up with this – on the spot.

The first sign I had that Kim was my Pretend Friend, was when she took Cheryl Walton’s side. Kim was witness to Cheryl’s freak-out at my door, and, how she fought the ambulance crew who took her to the Johnson Unit. Kim was compiling a case file on me while pretending to be my friend. She asked to be my facebook friend. I had her look at my daughter’s facebook as my spy, but, she betrayed me and ragged on me with my daughter.

I believe because Cheryl is a Christian, they believe their Rapture Jesus wants her to be healed, and I locked up in the Johnson Unit. These are religious fanatics playing God with tenants who signed a lease with Umbrella Properties. I heard there were three arrests here last night.

Kim says there was an article about me abusing women in the Eugene Weekly. She is a liar. Alley posted for Belle in a fake abuser site where one reads evil lies made against men, not unlike the lies Lance Jacob was subjected to?

In this video Cheryl approaches me and starts touching me. Her caregiver warned her a week ago about improper touching. Victims of incest do not like unwanted touching. Cheryl is identifying me as the Trouble Maker, who should try harder to get along with my neighbors, meaning – her! She has a giant crush on me.

I do suffer from PTSD and thus, I suffer from mental illness. Kim worked at the Johnson Unit. Where does Krista work? I spend most of my time writing. When my written words were made accessible to my neighbors, and my sister’s bio, they went – HOG WILD! This is what a real Witch Hunt looks and sounds like. This is not what our Mayor had in mind. After founding the Rose City Planners I have considered moving to Portland.

In the first video I see God’s Grunts coming for me with torches and pitchforks to drive out their first Coo-Coo Artist. Consider the Kesey Mural. Some folks can’t handle even a small dose of Art and Culture. They go berserk. There is no unwritten law in Springtucky law that says………..If any two women weigh 700 pounds in combined weight, they get to rule everyone’s life within a hundred yards, and gossip all they want.

And thus ends AAP Test No. X22387. As head of the Alien Art Police I declare Springfield Oregon a hostile environment for the Cosmic Creative Class.

SPRINGFIELD — New sculptures, monuments and murals made Springfield a more vibrant and welcoming city in 2016, while hotel construction in Glenwood, a rebuild of the Swanson Group mill, and renovations to The Shoppes at Gateway added millions of dollars in economic activity to the city, Springfield Mayor Christine Lundberg said Thursday in her seventh State of the City address.

Professional Victims?

Posted on December 3, 2014by Royal Rosamond Press


Alley Valkyrie is an anarchist and advocate. She and Belle Burch got arrested for trespass four days before I met Belle in Ken Kezey Square. Her lover was a leader of SLEEPS and Whoville that just got closed down. I suspect they were looking for people to help with their legal costs. When Belle sent me a poem about her sleeping downtown in a tent, and bar-hopping, I said; “You better not be using monies given to you to help the homeless!”

I have thirty years sobriety, and helped my Veteran friend find a home. When I found him dead, I held a memorial. I showed this to Belle on my blog, and she had no reaction. She did not inform me she was an advocate. I became suspicious. I asked if SLEEPS had filed a non-profit. This is when Alley sent me these threats. I own a newspaper registered in Lane County, Royal Rosamond Press. Alley is the one who made the report below. She was supposed to have Belle’s permission. But, this is the same message she posted on Mayor Kitty Piercy’s facebook, that was taken down. They had political ambitions and did not want any bad press. They tried to censor me.

Above are Alley and Belle’s homeless friends, some who defend Jeffrey Walton who molested a sixteen year old girl. These are Tribal Drug and Alcohol Abusers. The abuse of heroin that renders many homeless is a real concern. Senior Abuse – is real! I am a senior!

“I’m going to make this very simple for you. I don’t know if you know who I am, but I sure as hell know who you are, and when you fuck with my friends, you fuck with me. Stop writing about Belle or I am going to make your life very difficult. I mean it. If I see one more word about her on your blog, your FB, or anywhere else, I will make sure that you experience all the fear and discomfort that she is experiencing right now. And no, this isn’t a physical threat, so don’t try to play victim. Frankly, I encourage you to contact EPD, as they already know all about you. I will not do anything illegal, but mark my word you will regret it if you write one more word about her. I will make sure that the entire community knows exactly how much of a sick fuck you are. Your picture, your name, and “samples” of your writing will be posted on every bulletin board in town. There will not be a single person in the Eugene/Springfield area who won’t know that you’re a sick stalker who won’t leave a stalker who won’t leave a young girl alone. Cut it out. Now. This is your first, last, and only warning.”

“Please, go ahead and blog my threat.
You have no fucking idea what you’re getting yourself into
You also have no idea how many people are already on to you, and how many people have my back. We also have six other mutual friends who are going to learn about your behavior ASAP
And just so you know as well: if you write anything about me that could be construed as defamatory, you will be hearing from my lawyers ASAP.”

Alley Valkyrie; ” I will also say that going downtown would be a mistake, as EPD is quite aware of who and what you are, and they have nine uniformed officers downtown. But then again, you said you were going to City Council and you didn’t have the balls to do that, and…See More

Alley Valkyrie: And if you do go downtown, you will have to deal with me personally, by the way.”


Alley Valkyrie posted a photograph of me on this FAKE abuser site – after it was taken off Mayor Kittie Piercy’s facebook. Here is the criteria for EXPOSING someone, who has to be a man? This site was made by a woman – for other women!  You got to love this one…..

“They don’t respect your privacy. For example, they insist that you share all of your thoughts or feelings with them, or expect you to let them look through your phone, email, or facebook and get upset or pout when you tell them you can’t.”

EXPOSING A MAN is supposed to be good for the community. Was SHE in a class with Wayne, or the work-place?

Abuser “Wayne”: last known location in Eugene, Oregon

“Wayne”, email used to be Sexually coercive- manipulator- creeper. Kept pushing sexual boundaries when I made it clear what I wasn’t comfortable with. Lives off Horn Lane out River Road. He was on the U of O faculty at one time, former semi-retired professional in telecommunications. By doing internet searches I’m pretty sure his full name is F. Wayne Bowen (But not positive on this!). 


This UN-VICTIM can’t let it go, after HE is gone. All her friends don’t want to hear her silly-ass whining. What is “victim-blamed”?

“He victim-blamed for my previous abusers. He was extremely critical of me. He would start arguments over why I wasn’t reading his blog or asking him questions about music, which chair I picked to sit in at a restaurant, how long I was upset about things, the fact that I didn’t let him yell at me while I was crying without standing up for myself because he “just needed to let his emotions out”, etc…

This is right out of Genesis…This is how the Bible starts.

“When I would tell him something he did that upset me, sometimes he would reply “No, YOU did that to ME”. And when I disputed it he told me I was a “pathological liar”. And when I disputed that he said I wouldn’t know it because I so in denial that I believed my own lies.”

What a damn shame! Try attending church!

“He frequently changed his mind about polyamory in our relationship, starting out very small and then slowly over the course of a year or so, saying he wanted a no boundaries type of polyamorous relationship, painting himself as a victim when I didn’t want that.”

I’ve invented two new words:


  1. a old sick dude hits on two young members of OCCUPY at the same time so he can feel like he is young again.


“Many abusers do not use these behaviors because they know they couldn’t get away with it. But more subtle emotionally abusive behaviors are equally damaging, although they can sometimes be harder to define.

So, let’s hold Extraordinary Emotional Experiments on unsuspecting men, and eventually they will allow all women to completely change them so they can tolerate them for their sexual enjoyment – only!

“Please do not submit someone else’s story unless you have permission to do so by the person who survived the abuse.”

“He grabbed me by the scruff of my neck and slammed my face into his computer screen. He did not let go of me until I read his whole blog on Divo. It was not very good.”

Mary Broadhurst questioned Alley Valkyrie about posting this FALSE CHARGE against me, citing I might get REAL ANGRY – and hurt Belle Burch. Mary asks Alley if she got Belle’s permission. She said she did. I believe she lied. What Mary is suggesting, is, Alley is SUBJECTING Belle to ABUSE, and really making her afraid, she no longer faking it for the sake of SLEEP members. Alley USED Belle as a goat tied to a stake in her ongoing Tiger Hunt, her need to BAG A MAN – for the abuse she allegedly suffered as a girl!

What this site provides s a Witch Hunt, just for women. If you feel A NEED to destroy a man, a ex-lover, or, just any man, come get with other women on the internet – and go after them. This is STALKING! Here are – THE STALKERS! You don’t need to know who these other women are. You have a common cause. This is very sexist!

What I suspect, is, all these examples of being mistreated, is the inventory of ONE DUDE – her dude – who she broke up with, and was obsessively taking his inventory – GOSSIPING LIKE CRAZY – and wanted strangers to sign off on her demonization of him without knowing they are being tricked by a clever…………you know what?

Just change the word “They” to “He”. is He…………..”Wayne”?

The Downtown Dandy Club

Posted on August 3, 2018 by Royal Rosamond Press

I posted this before I learned my kindred, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, is in the same tree as Augustus John, and Ian Fleming. Four years ago I was preparing a presentation for Amazon Virtual Shops and Meeting places on the internet in order to perpetuate Bohemianism as put forth by Richard Florida. Amazon is going to bring Tolkien and his characters to television. I am now going to create an idea for another series………


Joaquin had dinner with Dante Gabriel Rossetti and other Pre-Raphaelites. Was William Morris present? Morris’ ‘House of Wolfings’ was a big inspiration for Tolkien. Joaquin was a member of the Bohemian Club who tried to cremate their Bohemian King on a pyre he built in the Oakland Hills, but were stopped. Because I am kin to Karl Schwarzenberg, any my great grandfather immigrated from Bohemia, I should hold the title ‘King of American Bohemians’. I hereby found ‘The Downtown Bohemian Club’.

What I would like to see is ‘The Downtown Dandy Club’ where men and women dress up like a Dandy, and stroll downtown with a newspaper under our arm. We will carry walking sticks, perhaps with a sword inside. We may be wearing Boiler hats. The Dandy Club’s mission is to keep newspapers alive. Every member must have a subscript to at least two papers. There will be a potbelly stove, and a shoeshine stand.

The Adam’s Rib theory will be discussed, along with the latest Tolkien program. All Dandy ideas are welcome, such as ‘The Dandy European Club’ where support of the European Union and Markets via a Virtual Amazon Europe Store, is established. Also, I found ‘The William Morris Society of America’ where The House of Wolfen is discussed, along with Morris’s ideas.

We Dandys will also keep a close eye on the Compost Commies and their Wiccan allies. I see the formation of Downtown Craft Guilds complete with our own Sergeants to keep the peace.

dandy, historically, is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of self.[1][2][3] A dandy could be a self-made man who strove to imitate an aristocratic lifestyle despite coming from a middle-class background, especially in late 18th- and early 19th-century Britain.

Previous manifestations of the petit-maître (French for small master) and the Muscadin have been noted by John C. Prevost,[4] but the modern practice of dandyism first appeared in the revolutionary 1790s, both in London and in Paris. The dandy cultivated cynical reserve, yet to such extremes that novelist George Meredith, himself no dandy, once defined cynicism as “intellectual dandyism”. Some took a more benign view; Thomas Carlyle wrote in Sartor Resartus that a dandy was no more than “a clothes-wearing man”. Honoré de Balzac introduced the perfectly worldly and unmoved Henri de Marsay in La fille aux yeux d’or (1835), a part of La Comédie Humaine, who fulfils at first the model of a perfect dandy, until an obsessive love-pursuit unravels him in passionate and murderous jealousy.



The Horses’ Mouth and Newspaper Sanctuary

Posted on January 11, 2016by Royal Rosamond Press


If Ali Emami had not reacted to the rumor Ken Kesey Square would be sold to a developer, it would be a done deal. The SLEEPS anarchists would have seized the day.

“Ali Emami, owner of the two buildings that have common walls with the plaza, says that when he heard rumors the public space might be sold and developed into apartments, he came before the Eugene City Council last week to again renew his offer to open up the walls of the buildings and make the space more inviting.I am going to make some proposals for what to do with Ken Kesey Square”

How about a Newspaper Museum and Reader’s Sanctuary?

“Ken Kesey is our George Washington,” said Jennifer Barnes, a self-described modern-day Merry Prankster. “He’s our culture, our history.”

Here is a video about my and Michael’s efforts to save the cottage that Ken lived in while attending the UofO.

Augustus John was the inspiration for the artist Gulley Jimson, in ‘The Horses’ Mouth’. Gulley is in search of the perfect wall for his mural. Joaquin Miller is our Washington. He earned an estimated $3,000 working as a Pony Express rider, and used the money to move to Oregon. With the help of his friend, Senator Joseph Lane, he became editor of the Democratic Register in Eugene. a role he held from March 15 to September 20, 1862. Here is Miller’s daughter.

George Miller platted the City of Florence and Fairmont. He designed a flying machine. Ali Emami’s plan to knock down walls to save the square is right out of ‘The Horses’ Mouth’. This is high drama already in progress! Above is a photo of Augustus John with James Joyce. Get rid of the One Hook Town to hang your hat. We need a Jimson reader, there, confronting passer-byes! We only got one horse on our merry-go-round. Enough! Here’s Miller with George Sterling the co-founder of the Bohemian Club and Carmel. We can reprint old copies of ‘The Augur’.



My friends and I in Oakland were doing Miller before we heard of Kesey. You got to get over the idea folks are trying to do Ken – and move on!

The Eugene Augur was a local countercultural underground newspaper published in Eugene, Oregon, United States, from 1969 to 1974. Starting with its first issue dated October 14, 1969, the Augur, produced by a cooperative of left-wing political activists aligned with the antiwar movement, appeared twice a month, offering up a mix of New Left politics and acid rock counterculture to an audience of students, hippies, radicals and disaffected working class youth in the Eugene area. The paper’s coverage ranged from antiwar demonstrations, exposing local narcotics agents, and rock festivals, to the growth of backwoods communes in Southern Oregon and the annual Oregon Renaissance Faire.[1] In August 1972, the paper cut publication to a monthly schedule. Staffers included Peter Jensen and Jim Redden, son of a prominent Oregon politician and later a reporter for the Portland Tribune.[2][3]

“I know a chap, a friend of mine, who used to paint girls for magazine covers. The best class of girls, eleven feet high with eyes as big as eggs. Well one morning he put on his best suit, called a taxi and drove to the Tower Bridge, where he tied his legs together, put ten pounds of lead in each pocket, took a pint of poison, cut his throat, shot himself through the head and jumped over the parapet. They saw through this job at once, picked him out, pumped him out, sewed him up, plugged him up, and had him back to work in six weeks.—Gulley Jimson in “The Horse’s Mouth” by Joyce Cary.

Vice President Harris and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met Saturday at the Munich Security Conference in Germany Saturday morning to discuss aggression from Russia and how the U.S. and its allies would respond.

Mixed Race Relations – are complex! Did Ginni wonder if her hubby was giving Kamala – the eye? Is Clarance thinking of switching parties, because he is A RHINO at heart? Kamala grew up around Black Panthers, and Clarance was a radical black man – who might capture the Black Vote if he TURNS on the Republican White Party. Does Clarance want to return to his roots…. now that folks are going to jail?

Ginni Thomas and John Eastman were BORN IN NEBRASKA ‘The Cornhusker State’. Our Vice President – WAS BORN IN OAKLAND! I want to do PR work for Kamala. Let it all hangout! I want to found a new Rainbow Sign in Florida. Kamala and her mother took lessons from Black Panthers.

Trump questions Kamala Harris’s citizenship

“It’s an open question, and one I think [Sen. Kamala D.] Harris should answer so the American people know for sure she is eligible.”

— Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis, in comments to ABC News, Aug. 13, 2020

“I heard it today that [Harris] doesn’t meet the requirements. And, by the way, the lawyer that wrote that piece is a very highly qualified, very talented lawyer. I have no idea if that’s right. I would have assumed the Democrats would have checked that out.”

— President Trump, in remarks to reporters, Aug. 13, 2020

A legal adviser and spokesperson for President Trump’s reelection campaign questioned the citizenship of Sen. Kamala D. Harris, a California native and the presumptive Democratic nominee for vice president. Later in the day, Trump said Harris possibly “doesn’t meet the requirements” to serve as vice president.

Harris’s citizenship is not under any serious question, legal experts told us.

For years, and as a presidential candidate in 2016, Trump stoked the “birther” conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. Now, the citizenship of another prominent African American politician is being challenged with no evidence.

Harris was born in Oakland, Calif., on Oct. 20, 1964. The 14th Amendment and a Supreme Court decision from 1898 give citizenship to people born in the territorial United States, according to constitutional law experts.

Trump perhaps knows this, because he announced in 2018 that he would try to end birthright citizenship with an executive order, which was never released.

The Facts

The Constitution requires the president and vice president to be natural-born U.S. citizens and at least 35 years old.

The 14th Amendment was adopted in 1868, repudiating the Supreme Court’s 7-to-2 decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford, an 1857 ruling that denied citizenship to people of African descent born in the United States.

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside,” the amendment says. The Supreme Court ruled in 1898 that this right to citizenship covered Wong Kim Ark, who was born in San Francisco to Chinese nationals legally residing in the United States.

Harris’s mother, Shyamala Gopalan, was born in India and came to the United States at age 19 to earn a PhD in nutrition and endocrinology at the University of California at Berkeley. Her father, Donald Harris, who is Black, arrived from Jamaica in 1963 to earn a PhD in economics from UC-Berkeley.

Trump referenced and Ellis retweeted an op-ed in Newsweek by John C. Eastman, a law professor at Chapman University and senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, that posited Harris might not be a natural-born citizen, depending on her parents’ immigration status when she was born.

The op-ed incorrectly dismisses relevant parts of the Supreme Court’s ruling in the 1898 Wong Kim Ark case, legal experts told us. Stephen H. Legomsky, a professor at the Washington University in St. Louis School of Law and former chief counsel of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said “there is not a shred of doubt as to Kamala Harris’s legal eligibility to be either the vice president or the president.”

“A handful of fringe academics have seized on the requirement that one must be not only ‘born or naturalized in the United States,’ but also ‘subject to the jurisdiction thereof,’ ” Legomsky wrote in an email, citing language from the 14th Amendment. “But the latter clause has no applicability to Kamala Harris.”

“The only people to whom that clause denies birthright citizenship are (1) American Indians born on tribal reservations (because Indian lands were considered to be a separate sovereign) and (2) the children of either enemy occupiers or foreign diplomats (because those were the categories included in the English common law from which the phrase was taken),” Legomsky added. “The Supreme Court in Wong Kim Ark specifically so held, and it has never once departed from that interpretation.”

Here’s that section of the Supreme Court opinion, as written by Justice Horace Gray:

“The Fourteenth Amendment affirms the ancient and fundamental rule of citizenship by birth within the territory, in the allegiance and under the protection of the country, including all children here born of resident aliens, with the exceptions or qualifications (as old as the rule itself) of children of foreign sovereigns or their ministers, or born on foreign public ships, or of enemies within and during a hostile occupation of part of our territory, and with the single additional exception of children of members of the Indian tribes owing direct allegiance to their several tribes.

“The Amendment, in clear words and in manifest intent, includes the children born, within the territory of the United States, of all other persons, of whatever race or color, domiciled within the United States.”

We sent questions to the Trump campaign and did not get responses. In a 2018 interview with Axios shortly before the congressional midterms, Trump said he would be releasing an executive order to end birthright citizenship — which never came. Congressional leaders from both parties and legal experts quickly dismissed Trump’s plan and said it would not pass legal muster because birthright citizenship is in the Constitution.

“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years, with all of those benefits,” Trump stated falsely at the time. Birthright citizenship is the law in more than 30 countries, including Canada and Mexico.

Birthright citizenship: A Trump-inspired history lesson on the 14th Amendment

“One of the hallmarks of the U.S. Constitution, by virtue of the 14th Amendment, is that it directly grants citizenship to those born in the United States, regardless of the ancestry of their parents,” Richard Pildes, a constitutional law professor at New York University School of Law, told HuffPost in a report documenting how a new strain of “birther” attacks on Harris has begun to spread. The United States, Pildes explained, adheres to the principle of “jus solis,” in which citizenship flows from birth “on the soil,” rather than “jus sanguinis,” in which it flows “from blood.”

Andrew Bates, a spokesman for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, said that Trump “was the national leader of the grotesque, racist birther movement with respect to President Obama” and that his campaign was trying to distract from the administration’s record on handling the coronavirus pandemic with “demonstrably false lies.”

The Pinocchio Test

In 2018, Trump said he would end birthright citizenship. This year, the president and a legal adviser for his campaign are suggesting birthright citizenship perhaps never existed, at least not for some people born to immigrant postgraduate students in California in the 1960s, or at the very least not for one of them: Harris.


Which one is it? When the last national election was coming up, in 2018, birthright citizenship was real and Trump made empty threats to end it unilaterally. This election year, apparently, it’s not so real now that a California-born woman from Jamaican and Indian parents is running on the Democrats’ presidential ticket.

As explained above, and as Trump himself has acknowledged, the Constitution grants citizenship to people born in the territorial United States. Trump earns Four Pinocchios.

The theory advanced by Donald Trump and concocted by John Eastman – a former clerk to Justice Thomas and Judge Luttig and a pen pal of Ginni Thomas – was a lie. It was stitched from whole cloth to sate the ambitions of the Oval Office’s desperate occupant and his minions.

To quote Pence’s counsel, “there was no way” that a sitting vice-president could unilaterally decide or alter the election’s outcome at a joint session of Congress. The witnesses stressed that to say otherwise would license Kamala Harris to do just that in early 2025 or have conferred upon Al Gore the power to commit constitutional “mischief” back in January 2001.

Eastman’s name and theories received repeated mention throughout the hearing. In August 2020, Eastman wrote an op-ed challenging Kamala Harris’s US citizenship and her eligibility to run for vice-president. For the record, Harris was born in Oakland, California, which is very much part of the United States.

The Eastman-Ginni Thomas alliance hovered over the hearing but received no mention before the cameras. Starting Monday night, a stream of stories emerged of communications between Ms Thomas and Eastman. Further, the New York Times reported that Eastman conveyed to Kenneth Chesebro, a pro-Trump lawyer, the state of play within the high court.


“So the odds are not based on the legal merits but an assessment of the justices’ spines, and I understand that there is a heated fight underway,” Eastman wrote.

From the sound of things, Eastman became privy to pillow-talk between the justice and his wife.

It was only a few short weeks ago that the right exploded over the leak of a draft of a supreme court decision that stands to overturn Roe v Wade and undo constitutional protections for reproductive freedom. Now, only crickets.

“We think it’s time that we, at some point, invite [Ginni Thomas] to come talk to the committee,” Bennie Thompson, the committee chair, told Axios on Thursday. “It’s time for us to invite her to come talk,” he relayed to CNN.

Like Bannon, Eastman failed in his efforts to undercut the committee. In March, a federal court ruled that Eastman could not block the production of certain documents despite their possibly constituting “attorney-work product”. Instead, the crime-fraud exception attached, and the privilege did not apply.

“Based on the evidence, the court finds that it is more likely than not that President Trump and Dr Eastman dishonestly conspired to obstruct the Joint Session of Congress on January 6 2021,” the court opined.

The Eastman-Ginni Thomas alliance hovered over the hearing but received no mention before the cameras

During the Trump administration’s waning days, Eastman sought but failed to obtain a presidential pardon. Herschmann told Eastman to lawyer up. Fittingly, Eastman has invoked his right against self-incrimination before the committee 100 times.

Despite all this, the hearings have not swayed broad swaths of the public. In Nevada, election-deniers ran the table in Tuesday’s Republican primaries. Further east, in Michigan, indicted Ryan Kelley is in the hunt for the party’s gubernatorial nomination.

Instead, a recent poll shows half the country predicting that someday the US will “cease” to be a democracy. And 49% of respondents answered that they were not following the hearings.

Judge Luttig repeated that the 45th president and some of his followers were a “threat” to democracy – not simply for what happened on 6 January 2021, but on account of the 2024 presidential race and what may follow.

At the moment, Trump is considering whether to announce his candidacy before November’s midterms. Beyond that, plans for a Trump-driven steal reportedly appear to be in the works. If Mike Pence prayed the morning of 6 January, he was right to.

Kamala ‘Daughter of Oakland’

Posted on February 4, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

Kamala was born in Kaiser Hospital that was located two blocks from where I lived with Gloria and our female lab, Deva, which I just discovered in the middle name of Kamala Devi Harris. Devi/Deva means ‘divine godlike shiny being’. Kamala is the goddess Lakshmi. Being a follower of Meher Baba while I lived on Yosemite, I can conjure up a divine image of Kamala’s birth and life from the perspective of her mother who took her famous daughter to India. I know Kamala is concerned with the Christian Identity of America. Let us remove this block by saying I came back to Oakland with Dottie Witherspoon whose great grandfather was Signer John Witherspoon, a Presbyterian Leader from South Carolina where we visited Baba’s retreat. I clear a path for the ever-dwelling presence of The Divine Light. Kaiser was torn down and is now a empty lot. I suggest the U.S. Government purchase this property and build a college and shrine for students who want to know the culture of India.

I can not find the address for the Oakland residence that I believe the photo of Kamala and her father was taken. I am well versed in the blend of Black Politics and the existence of a Divine Transcendence that was very prevalent in the Bay Area. This energy filled the air and hovered on the borderline of Oakland and Berkeley. I am going to retrieve this light and history. Deva lived with my wife, Mary Ann Tharaldsen, and my stepdaughter, Britt, on Miles Street, which is a half-mile away from Kaiser. Deva lived there too.

“On this day I found the Cal-Oregon Rainbow Coalition.”

On September 7, 2020, a month before Kamala was elected Vice President, I posted about the Rainbow Coalition. This morning I find the ‘Rainbow Sign’. Founding the Marin Sea Cadets is part of ‘The Kamala Prophecy’.

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.”

Actor Chadwick Boseman has died at 43 after battling colon cancer for four years, according to a statement posted on his Twitter account.

“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman,” the statement reads. “It was the honor of his life to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.”

Anti-Big Government – Is A Fraud

Ginni Thomas

Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, arrives to watch Judge Amy Coney Barrett take the constitutional oath on the South Lawn of the White House on October 26, 2020. 

“Two months after rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to help President Donald Trump stay in office, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, attended a gathering of right-wing activists where a speaker declared to roaring applause that Trump was still the “legitimate president,” a video recording of the event shows.

“There is a robbery that is going on in this country right now,” pastor and conservative radio personality C.L. Bryant told the crowd, according to video posted to Facebook by an attendee. “In fact, I say it to you and I’ll say it loud and clear, and I’m not ashamed to say it. I won’t bite my tongue. I do believe that Donald John Trump is the only legitimate president.”

Bryant calls for two million Republican Christians to GO TO WASHINGTON! Does Ginni and her Bossom Buddy, Donald Chump, see Bryant as the New Martin Luther King?

John Eastman and his fellow Plotter – Donald Trump -go after Vice President Kamala Harris, the first Black Female Vice President. How does Bryant feel about this black politician? Did he EXAMINE HER to see if she was a FELLOW CHRISTIAN. Did Amy Barret pass The Cross Test? Ginni hates the last two Vice Presidents! Does Clarance – feel her pain?

I challenge Bryan to a thealogical debate. I demand he GET OUT of John Fremont’s party – and take the Thomas’ with you!

C. L. Bryant – Wikipedia

Bryant is a senior fellow at FreedomWorks in Washington, D.C., and a member of the Republican Party, which he has defended against allegations of racism.[5]

In March 2012, Bryant criticized Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton for their roles in protests stemming from the controversial killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida.[6]

Bryant is the founder of “One Nation Back to God.” In 2012, he produced and released the independent documentaryRunaway Slave. Bryant commented that the film was “a movie about the race to free the black community from the slavery of tyranny and progressive policies.”[6][7][8] In 2010, Bryant penned the non-fiction book, Lead Us to Temptation, Deliver Us to Evil.[9]

On January 19, 2016, Bryant endorsed Senator Ted Cruz of Texas for the Republican presidential nomination.[10] He then endorsed the eventual nominee and election winner, President Donald Trump and defended Trump against allegations raised by his critics on the radio program.

A Facebook group that appears to be run by Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, could become a new point of interest in the U.S. House Select Committee’s investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Congressional investigators said they planned to ask Ginni Thomas to testify before the committee hours after Trump attorney John Eastman on Thursday publicly posted a Dec. 4, 2020 email from Thomas asking him to speak to a gathering she called “Frontliners,” which she described as featuring “grassroots state leaders.” Ginni Thomas is listed as an administrator of a Facebook group that goes by a similar name and description: “FrontLiners for Liberty.”

The private group, which listed more than 50 members, was created in August 2020, just two months before the November elections, according to the page’s description.

The groupwhich CNBC reviewed before it was removed from public view, described itself as “a new collaborative, liberty-focused, action-oriented group of state leaders representing grassroots armies to CONNECT, INFORM and ACTIVATE each other weekly to preserve constitutional governance.” Although Thomas’ personal Facebook page isn’t verified, it contained numerous photos of Justice Thomas.

The group’s pages were removed from public view after CNBC reached out to Thomas about the organization. It now shows a notice from Facebook saying that it’s either been deleted or the privacy settings have been changed.

CNBC also tried to get answers through Facebook messenger to Stephanie Coleman, who is also listed administrator of the group and the wife of the late Gregory Coleman who was Texas’ solicitor general. Greg Coleman was once a clerk for Justice Thomas.

Coleman and Thomas are repeatedly pictured together on Coleman’s personal Facebook page, including a photo of the two together in December 2016 with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Op-Ed: The insurrection won’t end until Trump is prosecuted and disqualified from future office (msn.com)

Eric Greitens Tells Supporters To Hunt Political Opponents In New Ad (msn.com)

The next televised hearing will be on Tuesday at 1 p.m E.T. The hearing will include two top Georgia election officials -— Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his deputy Gabe Sterling —testifying in front of the Democratic-led committee.

The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol attack is expected to show at its fourth hearing on Tuesday that Donald Trump and top advisers coordinated the scheme to send fake slates of electors as part of an effort to return him to the White House.

The panel is expected to also examine Trump’s campaign to pressure top officials in seven crucial battleground states to corruptly reverse his defeat to Joe Biden in the weeks and months after the 2020 election.

At the afternoon hearing, the select committee is expected to focus heavily on the fake electors scheme, which has played a large part in its nearly year-long investigation into Trump’s effort to overturn the results of the election at the state level.

The panel will show how the fake electors scheme – which may have been illegal – was the underlying basis for Trump’s unlawful strategy to have his vice-president, Mike Pence, refuse to certify Biden’s win in certain states and grant him a second term.

If the 2020 election cycle had been like any other when the electoral college convened on 14 December 2020 and Democratic electors attested to Biden’s victory over Trump, that would have marked the end of any post-election period conflict.

But that year, after the authorized Democratic electors met at statehouses to formally name Biden as president, in seven battleground states, illegitimate Republican electors arrived too, saying they had come to instead name Trump as president.

The Trump electors were turned away. However, they nonetheless proceeded to sign fake election certificates that declared they were the “duly elected and qualified” electors certifying Trump as the winner of the presidential election in their state.

The fake electors scheme was conceived in an effort to create “dueling” slates of electors that Pence could use to pretend the election was in doubt and refuse to formalize Biden’s win at the congressional certification on 6 January.

And, the select committee will show, the fake election certificates were in part manufactured by the Trump White House, and that the entire fake electors scheme was coordinated by Trump and his top advisers, including former chief of staff Mark Meadows.

“We will show evidence of the president’s involvement in this scheme,” congressman Adam Schiff, the select committee member leading the hearing alongside the panel’s chairman, Bennie Thompson, and vice-chair, Liz Cheney, said on CNN on Sunday.

Members of Trump’s legal team insist this is a distorted characterization of the scheme, saying the so-called alternate slates were put together and signed in case that states did re-certify their election results for Trump and they needed to be sent right away to Congress.

But that explanation is difficult to reconcile given Trump lawyer John Eastman admitted in a 19 December 2020 the Trump slates were “dead on arrival” if they were not certified, and yet still pushed Pence to reject Biden’s slates even though Trump slates were still not certified.

The fake electors scheme is important because it could be a crime. The justice department is investigating whether the Republicans who signed as electors for Trump could be charged with falsifying voting documents, mail fraud or conspiracy to defraud the United States.

If Trump was involved in the scheme, and the justice department pursues a case, then the former US president may also have criminal exposure. At least one federal grand jury in Washington is investigating the scheme and the involvement of top Trump election lawyers, including Rudy Giuliani.

The select committee is also set to closely focus on Trump’s pressure campaign on leading Republican state officials in the weeks and months after the election, according to a committee aide who previewed the hearing on a briefing call with reporters.

Among other key flash points that the panel intends to examine include Trump’s now-infamous 2 January 2021 call with Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger – who will testify live at the hearing – when Trump asked him to “find” votes to make him win the election.

“I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have,” Trump said during the conversation, a tape of which was obtained by the Washington Post and House investigators working for the select committee.

The select committee will describe Trump pressuring other state officials to investigate election fraud claims his own White House and campaign lawyers knew were false, relying on testimony from Arizona House speaker Rusty Bowers.

And the panel will additionally hear testimony from Shaye Moss, a Georgia election worker in Fulton County, who was falsely accused by Giuliani and others of sneaking in “suitcases” of ballots for Biden – a conspiracy debunked by election officials.

Eric Greitens, the disgraced former governor of Missouri seeking political redemption in a MAGA-fied U.S. Senate bid, released a campaign ad Monday advertising a “hunting permit” for his political opponents — so-called “RINOs,” or “Republicans in Name Only.” 

A campaign ad for Greitens’ new political assassination campaign opens with Greitens holding a shotgun and strolling past a mailbox labeled “The RINO’s Den.” 

“I’m Eric Greitens, Navy SEAL, and today we’re going RINO hunting,” Greitens says in the ad — though he’s not actually a SEAL anymore

The ad then pans to Greitens joining several men with military fatigues on the front porch of a house. One of them uses a battering ram to knock down the door, followed by the deployment of a flash-bang grenade.

Greitens and his anonymized military stand-ins enter the house with guns drawn, though the dwelling is apparently abandoned, allowing the disgraced former governor to deliver the latest fundraising pitch for his campaign: a hunting permit!

“The RINO feeds on corruption and is marked with the stripes of cowardice,” Greitens says in the ad. “Join the MAGA crew. Get a RINO hunting permit. There’s no bagging limit, no tagging limit, and it doesn’t expire until we save our country.” 

A “RINO HUNTING PERMIT” sticker on Greitens’ page on WinRed, the Republican fundraising platform, is listed at $25. 

A Facebook spokesperson told CNN that the platform had removed the video “for violating our policies prohibiting violence and incitement.” A disclaimer above the video on Twitter noted, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about abusive behavior. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.” 

On Monday, Greitens lapped up the publicity his new ad had garnered, linking to a Washington Post upload of the video and thanking the paper for hosting it. 

Greitens resigned the governorship in 2018 amid allegations that at various times he bound, photographed, sexually assaulted and blackmailed a woman. Greitens acknowledged having an extra-marital affair but denied the allegations of assault and blackmail.

No charges were filed in the case, but a Republican-led committee in the Missouri house found evidence that Greitens engaged in “multiple acts constituting crimes, misconduct, and acts of moral turpitude,” both in the alleged sexual assault case, and in another scandal involving a Greitens fundraising effort. 

In addition, Greitens’ ex-wife Sheena Greitens has accused him of physical abuse of her and their children as part of an ongoing child custody dispute, accusations the candidate has denied and said are part of a smear campaign backed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and “the RINO swamp.”

Missouri’s German Unionists: From Defeat to Uncertain Victory Over Slavery – Long Island Wins

The contrast between Jessie Benton and Ginni Thomas – is historically astounding! They are the exact opposites. If we are to believe the Thomas’…the BLACK Justice of the Supreme Court…knew nothing about his wife’s connections to the Fake Tea Party via Freedomworks…whose goal was to force Black Americans to WORK as slaves again! Jessie lost most of her family when she announced she was an Abolitionist – LIKE HER WHITE HUSBAND – who wrote the first Emancipation of Slaves in our Democracy. John Fremont was a True Patriot, verses the Confederate TRAITORS of the Red States.

Frémont Emancipation – Wikipedia


The Frémont Emancipation was part of a military proclamation issued by Major General John C. Frémont (1813–1890) on August 30, 1861 in St. Louis, Missouri during the early months of the American Civil War. The proclamation placed the state of Missouri under martial law and decreed that all property of those bearing arms in rebellion would be confiscated, including slaves, and that confiscated slaves would subsequently be declared free. It also imposed capital punishment for those in rebellion against the federal government.

Fremont’s published accounts and maps were a crucial resource for settlers during their westward migration. His explorations seized such a hold on the popular imagination that he became known as the “Pathfinder.”

That fame, along with his credentials as a committed anti-slavery advocate, put him in position to become the first Republican candidate for President in 1856. Although he lost to Democrat James Buchanan, scoring a very respectable 114 electoral votes to Buchanan’s 174, Fremont retained an excellent reputation based on his pioneering exploits. When the Civil War broke out, President Lincoln appointed the Pathfinder a Major General and Commander of the Department of the West, based in St. Louis, Missouri.

When the Civil War began in April 1861, the Union’s most important resource for controlling the slave-state of Missouri was the large German community centered in St. Louis. Germans had formed their own clandestine pro-Unionist militias even before the war had begun and they had been in the forefront of Union military operations throughout 1861.1

In May, 1861, German immigrants had successfully disarmed pro-Confederate forces outside St. Louis. The St. Louis Germans thwarted the state’s pro-Confederate governor’s attempt to take Missouri out of the Union and had dispersed a secessionist legislature. By August of 1861, the Germans formed the bulk of a military force that had pushed pro-Confederate forces out of all but the southwest corner of Missouri, however a final drive against the Confederates had failed at the Battle of Wilson’s Creek. In the fall the Germans had backed the immediate emancipation of slaves ordered by General John C. Fremont. However, Union defeats in the second half of the year exposed German families living on farms and in isolated villages to retaliatory attacks from Confederate sympathizers, and Lincoln rescinded Fremont’s emancipation order.2

The strong identification of the German community with the Union cause made them targets of violence, and their accents gave away their political leanings to the many supporters of the Confederacy living in the state. Missouri Germans had been one of the most anti-slavery demographic groups before the war. By the fall of 1861, they knew that only the end of slavery could insure their community’s future. 3

In 1862 Germans in Missouri tied their community’s survival to an end to slavery.  The St. Louis German Newspaper Anzeiger des Westens wrote that “For us Germans, emancipation is a matter of life or death. If Missouri remains a slave state, then we will not remain here any longer. …We will always be seen as a dangerous, incendiary element, and…it would be inevitable that we would always be outvoted, and looked at askance, defeated in all matters and cheated, and it would then be best for us to leave. –If Missouri became a free state, on the other hand, then we would be saviors…and they would look on us with respect in the free states; German immigration would not simply rise, but increase…tenfold.”  The editor wrote that “Emancipation was always a matter of honor for the Germans.” It identified the immigrants with a worldwide struggle for freedom. The newspaper described pro-Confederate slave owners as though they were the hated aristocracy of Europe whom the immigrants had fled a decade earlier. The Confederates did not just enslave blacks, they also tried to disenfranchise and silence immigrants, the newspaper argued. By destroying slavery, the Germans would not only liberate blacks, they would also break the back of aristocratic power.4

Jessie Benton – Muse

Posted on June 5, 2013 by Royal Rosamond Press


Jessie Benton was the living Muse of California who was tirelessly promoted by Charles Lummis who is seen in the groundbreaking ceremony for the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles with Elizabeth Fremont, Jessie’s daughter. Jessie wrote short stories for Lummis’s Out West magazine, as did my grandfather, Royal Rosamond. Both authors promoted the Golden State that John Fremont secured for the United States. One historian titles Jessie ‘Mother of the Race of Southern California’.

My mother, Rosemary Rosamond, was the epitome for the Race of Lost Angels, East Coast Muses who got lost out West. Royal taught Erl Stanley Gardener how to type and write in the living room of the Rosamond home in Ventura by the Sea. I am an author who writes about his Muse who inspired Christine Rosamond Benton to take up art. The two fictitious biographies (and two movie scripts) written about my famous sister, are utter trash, they written to enrich my ungifted siblings, Mark and Vicki Presco, who knew nothing about art and history, and omit some amazing history.

These two are the anti-muses, who destroyed the creative family history I have restored and saved in my blogs. These usurpers did not know Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor is our kindred. Liz was the Queen of Hollywood, and Los Angeles Royalty. She died not knowing she was kin to Jessie Benton whom she resembles in character, they both championing unpopular causes. They were Liberated Women, as was the artist, Rosamond who married Garth Benton, the cousin of the famous artist Thomas Hart Benton, who was the grandson of Senator Benton, the father of Jessie, and promoter of the West.

In the photo above we see a portrait of John Fremont painted by the famous artist (John) Gutzon de la Mothe Borglum who rendered Mount Rushmore. Jessie was Gutzon’s patron. You will find an image of Rushmore in your American Passport.

The house Jessie lived in (1101 W.28th.St.) was moved several time before it was demolished. Liz Fremont burned most of her father’s papers lest they fall into the hands of the enemy, those who were hell-bent on toppling Fremont and Jessie from the heights they had reached. Who would do such a thing? In my history book I blame Mary Todd, Lincoln’s shrill and ambition wife who some say controlled the White House. How she did this will be revealed in my History Book. There can be no doubt I and Jessie’s historian, and the Family history, in regards to the two creative grandchildren, of Royal Rosamond.

Speilberg is the King of Hollywood who missed the Fremont history in his movie ‘Lincoln’. Abe was for shipping black folks to another country after the Civil war ended so divided white folks can get along. rednecks and neo-Confederats took over the Reublican Party that John Fremont co-founded, and was this parties first Presidential candidate. The fake Patriots have brought our government to a halt, and work with right-wing think tanks to alter history, raise Scarlet from the ruins of Tara. Jessie was the real Scarlet O’Hara until she opposed slavery. Her father was a member of the Free Soil party, and bid John Fremont to conduct a clandestine war for the Golden State and the Land of the Free.

Mrs. Jessie Benton Fremont and company at her home in Los Angeles, ca.1892

Photograph of Mrs. Jessie Benton Fremont and company at her home in Los Angeles, ca.1892. Mrs. Jessie Benton can be seen at center with Miss Elizabeth “Lily” Fremont and two children of Lieutenant Fremont nearby. She relaxes in a hammock strung from the wall to a post while behind her stand two girls, a boy (sitting on the porch railing), and Lily (sitting with knitting in her lap). In the extreme background, large trees are visible. A wooden chair with a blanket draped over the seat can be seen in the foreground.; In the original record, the home’s location was defined as “in Pasadena”.; “The house which was built in West Adams in either 1891 or 1892 at 1101 West 28th Street (at the NW corner of Hoover). The house was designed by architect Sumner P. Hunt. It was moved in the late 30s to the Valley–sadly to the site of what became Valley College–5744 Ethel Avenue. The college then decided to build there so it moved again to 14626 Titus Street, Panorama City where it was demolished in 1959. Obviously, no one knew what they had. And it was built for Mrs. Fremont after her husband’s NYC death by the women of CA and Los Angeles” — Anna Marie Brooks, Architectural Historian.

In partnership with architect Silas Reese Burns he designed such regional landmarks as the original building of the Southwest Museum, the Casa de Rosas, Ebell of Los Angeles, the Bradbury Building, the Los Angeles Country Club, the Vermont Square Branch library, the Pierpont Inn, LA headquarters building of the Automobile Club of Southern California, and the Janet Jacks Balch Hall for Scripps College, a liberal arts women’s college in Claremont, California. It is a member of the Claremont Colleges. The Hall was completed in the Fall of 1929. The building was a gift of Mr. and Mrs. Allan C. Balch of Los Angeles, and named in honor of trustee Janet Jacks Balch. Today Balch Hall is used as the administrative center and the adjoining auditorium is a key location for lectures, plays, community meetings, convocations, and musical events.

Charles Fletcher Lummis was an anthropologist, historian, journalist, and photographer who created the Southwest Society, which was the western branch of the Archaeological Institute of America. He gained the support of city leaders, and with the financial backing of attorney Joseph Scott and opened the Southwest Museum in 1907. The museum moved from Downtown Los Angeles to its current location in Mt. Washington in 1914, and has been there ever since.
The 1914 building was designed by architects Sumner P. Hunt and Silas Reese Burns. Later additions to the museum include the Caroline Boeing Poole Wing of Basketry (completed 1941), by architect Gordon B. Kaufmann, and the Braun Research Library (1971), by architect Glen E. Cook.

Lummis used his personal relationship with President Theodore Roosevelt to force his old nemesis, the U.S. Indian policy bureaucracy, to change some of its ways. In the face of Indian Bureau opposition, he found a new home for a small band of Indians evicted from their village alongside a hot spring near Palm Springs. He helped reverse a ridiculous policy that led some U.S. Indian agents to forcibly cut the hair of Indian men on their reservations. But in one battle, Lummis overstepped his bounds and ended up wearing out his welcome at the White House.

In 1892, Lummis released another book, Some Strange Corners of Our Country. Between 1893 and 1894, Lummis spent 10 months in Peru with Adolph Bandelier before returning to Los Angeles with his wife, Eva, and their year old daughter, Turbese. Unemployed and out of money, he finally landed the position of editor of a regional magazine, Land of Sunshine. The magazine was renamed Out West[6] in 1901, and published works by famous authors such as John Muir and Jack London. Over his 11 years as editor, Lummis wrote more than 500 pieces for the magazine himself, as well as a popular monthly commentary called “In the Lion’s Den”. He also built a remarkable home out of stone which he named El Alisal for the sycamore tree that grew just outside. As president of the “Landmarks Club of Southern California” (an all-volunteer, privately funded group dedicated the preservation of California’s deteriorating Spanish missions), Lummis noted that the historic structures “…were falling to ruin with frightful rapidity, their roofs being breached or gone, the adobe walls melting under the winter rains.”

His widow, Jessie Benton Fremont, is at this writing (1893), a resident of Los Angeles, Cal. Three children survive their father, an unmarried daughter, Elizabeth McDowell Benton, Lieutenant Frank Preston Fremont, U. S. A.; and Lieutenant John Charles Fremont, U. S. N. After his death Mrs. Fremont demanded compensation for, or restitution of the property appropriated by the United States Government for military purposes in San Francisco harbor, in 1863, and for which she has never received a dollar (1893). The settlement of this claim in her favor is anticipated by the bench generally, long as justice to her has been delayed. At present she has a pension from the Government.

Fremont’s 100-day reign over the Army of the West was generally ineffectual and he was replaced, mostly because Lincoln was tired of hearing about Fremont’s feud with the powerful Blair family. Francis Blair, former editor of the Washington Globe, was a close friend of Andrew Jackson and Thomas Benton. His son Montgomery was Lincoln’s Postmaster General. Francis wanted Fremont to name another son, Frank Jr., currently a Missouri Congressman, a general and to give most of the lucrative government contracts for fortifications around the city of St. Louis to his Missouri friends. But Fremont ignored Blair and gave most of these contracts to his California friends, Palmer and Beard, who had followed him to St. Louis. The last straw for Lincoln was Fremont’s decision to free all the slaves of Missouri landowners who were sympathetic to the Confederacy. The president ordered Fremont to renounce his emancipation proclamation. In 1862 he was given another command to head one of three armies in the Mountain Department campaign of West Virginia. He soon got into trouble, however, when he failed to arrive at Strasburg in time to join up with another army headed by General McDowell and cut off Stonewall Jackson’s retreat. When Lincoln decided to merge these three armies under one command he selected the leader of the third army, John Pope, an archenemy of Fremont’s from his days in Missouri, and Fremont asked to be relieved of his command. Lincoln never gave him another command and he resigned from the army in 1863.

Frank Preston Fremont graduated from West Point, got as far as major in his army career but was court-martialed for insubordination in 1907. He spent most of his remaining life in Cuba as president of a munitions factory there. He died in 1931.

Fremont is considered a major enigma in American History. There are many questions about his life — what really happened and why did he do what he did — that will probably never be answered. One day shortly after her mother’s death Lily Fremont went through her parents’ papers and burned everything that she thought damaged her father’s reputation. He was basically a shy person and definitely not as socially oriented and most likely as politically ambitious as his wife Jessie. He and Jessie were both fluent in French and Spanish and some of his best friends, including the French Canadian voyageurs on his expeditions and his Californio landowner neighbors, spoke only those native tongues. Most of the men who accompanied him on his expeditions and in his Civil War campaigns adored him and were proud to have served under him.



Jessie Ann Benton Frémont

Posted on June 4, 2013 by Royal Rosamond Press


To look at the handwriting of folks who are kin to you in a history museum puts one in a category that very few people are in. Besides the letter of Jessie Benton, there was a letter written by her father, Senator Thomas Hart Benton, who was the editor of the St. Louis Enquirer. Jessie was a prolific writer and a expansionist. Her nephew was the famous artist, Philip Boileau, whose images of beautiful women prepared the way for the work of my late sister, Christine Rosamond Benton. I believe the lithograph above titled ‘Jessie’ was inspired by the daughter of garth Benton, the cousin of the famous artist, Thomas Hart Benton. Thomas’ work needs to be included in the exhibit at the Portland Historic Society. That my adopted veteran son is a part of this history, is ironic.

While in Missouri, Bonneville was inspired by the writing of Hall J. Kelley, as well as editorials in the St. Louis Enquirer (edited at the time by Thomas Hart Benton) to join in the exploration of the American West. Bonneville met with Kelley, who was impressed by him and appointed him to lead one of the expeditions to the Oregon Country; it was scheduled to leave in early 1832. The lack of volunteers for the expedition forced the delay and eventual cancellation of the expedition, leaving Bonneville unrequited in his ambitions.

Jessie Ann Benton Frémont (May 31, 1824 – December 27, 1902) was an American writer and political activist.

Fremont’s initial notability came from her family: she was the daughter of Missouri Senator Thomas Hart Benton and the wife of military officer, explorer and politician, John C. Frémont, she wrote many stories that were printed in popular magazines of the time as well as several books of historical value. Her writings, which helped support her family during times of financial difficulty, were memoirs of her husband’s, and her own, time in the American West—back when the West was an exotic frontier.

A great supporter of her husband, who was one of the first two Senators of the new U.S. state of California and a Governor of the Territory of Arizona, she was outspoken on political issues and a determined opponent of slavery, which was excluded from the formation of California. By maintaining a high level of political involvement during a period that was extremely unfavorable for women, Jessie Benton Frémont proved herself to be years ahead of her time.

She was born near Lexington, Virginia, the second child of Thomas Hart Benton (1782–1858) and Elizabeth McDowell (1794–1854). She was born in the home of her mother’s father, James McDowell. Her father, Senator Benton, had been wanting a son, but went ahead and named her in honor of his father, Jesse Benton.

Jessie was raised in Washington, D.C., more in the manner of a 19th century son than daughter, with her father, who was renowned as the “Great Expansionist,” seeing to her early education and introducing her to the leading politicians of the day, an unusual thing for the period.[1] Jessie was very close to her father and stuck by his side. He shared with her the many books and maps in the valise that always accompanied him on their trips to and from Missouri and Virginia. She began, too, to share his dream of a nation stretching from ocean to ocean. In this manner, she became well educated in the ways of social structure and the disciplines of politics, history, literature and languages. After attaining some fluency in French and Spanish, Jessie helped in the translation of government documents.

In 1840 at age 15, while studying and living at Georgetown Seminary, she met Lieutenant John C. Frémont who was in Washington preparing a report on explorations he had made between the Missouri River and the northern frontier of the United States. They became engaged, but her parents objected to a marriage at that time because of her age. Probably through the influence of Col. Benton, Frémont then received an order from the war department to make an examination of the Des Moines River on the western frontier. The survey was made rapidly, and shortly after his return from this duty they eloped and were married on October 19, 1841.[2]

American West [edit]

For a while after their marriage, Jessie and her husband lived on Army posts, until Frémont was assigned the task of exploring the West and scouting land for future U.S. territorial expansion. It was this assignment that began the couple’s rise to fame.

John C. Frémont
A reconciliation occurred between Jessie and her father when he promoted Frémont’s famous explorations of the West. Senator Benton had been persuaded by his ailing wife to accept the marriage, and the couple moved into the Benton home. Frémont left his pregnant wife behind in the spring of 1842 to lead his first expedition to mark the trails West. He returned, however, days before the birth of their eldest child, Elizabeth Benton “Lily” Frémont, who was born November 15, 1842, in Washington D.C. He then headed off again and Jessie and the baby remained behind.

Frémont became known as the “Pathfinder to the West.” Jessie, intensely interested in the details of his expedition, became his recorder, making notes as he described his experiences. Adding human-interest touches to these printed reports, she wrote and edited best-selling stories of the adventures Frémont had while exploring the West with his scout, Kit Carson. Thus, she involved herself in her most happy life’s work, interpreting her husband and his actions for a public eager for information about the opening of the West. Written during a time when the concept of Manifest Destiny was becoming increasingly popular, these narratives were received with great enthusiasm.

Her husband was instrumental in the conquest of California, successfully taking it from Mexico as a Territory of the United States. He served as the 3rd Military Governor, in 1847. At the time of the court-martial of Frémont, during which he attempted to defend his actions in the Bear Flag Revolt, Jessie gave birth to a son, Benton Frémont, on July 24, 1848, in Washington, D.C. The baby’s death, within the year in St. Louis, she blamed on her husband’s accuser, General Kearny.

In 1849, Jessie and Lily made a harrowing and treacherous journey aboard ship to join Frémont in California. After disembarking and crossing the Isthmus of Panama, they boarded another vessel to San Francisco. With income from their gold mines, the Frémonts established a home and settled into San Francisco society. As a politically informed woman, Jessie was known to get involved in city politics and discuss with the men any issues that were of importance at the time.

Politics [edit]

John C. Frémont served from September 9, 1850, to March 3, 1851, as Senator from California. Their third child, John C. Frémont, Jr., was born April 19, 1851, at Las Mariposas, California. While the couple was visiting Paris, France, their fourth child, Anne Beverly Frémont, was born on February 1, 1853. Anne died five months later, on July 11, in Washington, D.C. Their fifth and final child, Francis Preston “Frank” Frémont, was born on May 17, 1855, in Washington.

In 1856, Frémont’s antislavery position was instrumental in his being chosen as the first-ever Republican candidate for President. Jessie played an extremely active role in the campaign, rallying support for her husband. One particular campaign slogan read, “Frémont and Jessie too.” Her father, however, a lifelong Democrat, refused to endorse her husband’s bid for the presidency. This did not stop the supporters of Frémont from continuing to refer to her as the “first lady in the land,” a title her admirers continued to use throughout her life [3]

Frémont garnered many Northern votes, but ultimately lost the election to James Buchanan, though he did surpass the American Party candidate, Millard Fillmore. Frémont was unable to carry the state of California. If he had taken the state of Pennsylvania he would have won.

In the years following, the couple moved several times, living in California, St. Louis and New York. Some historians [4] suggest that she played an active role in the anti-Secession movement in California in 1861, but others[5] suggest her influence was less important than other anti-secessionist and anti-slavery speakers at the time, such as Harriet Beecher Stowe. When President Lincoln appointed Frémont as the Commander of the Department of the West in 1861, they returned to St. Louis.

Jessie Frémont served as her husband’s unofficial aide and closest adviser. They shared the belief that St. Louis was unprepared for war and needed reinforcements and supplies, and both pressured Washington, to send more supplies and troops. She threw herself into the war effort, helping to organize a Soldier’s Relief Society in St. Louis, and becoming very active in the Western Sanitary Commission, which provided medicine and nursing to soldiers injured in the war.

One of the most impressive feats of her political career came shortly after Frémont lost his position during the Civil War for issuing his own edict of emancipation, summarily freeing all of the slaves in Missouri, which antedated Lincoln’s own Emancipation Proclamation. Jessie actually traveled to Washington, and pleaded with Lincoln on behalf of her husband, but to no avail.[6]

Jesse Benton Frémont invited Horace Greely to her home in Mariposa and encouraged him to visit Yosemite Valley where he was influenced later to write in favor of federal protection of Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia. Galen Clark who is often credited with protecting the Mariposa Grove credited Jessie Benton Frémont for helping with the effort to encourage President Abraham Lincoln to sign the Yosemite Grant in 1864.

Later years [edit]

Frémont sitting at home in Los Angeles
The Frémonts would not live in St. Louis again, moving to New York and then California. In the Panic of 1873, John C. Frémont, who had invested heavily in railroad stock, lost everything and declared bankruptcy. Undaunted by their financial situation, Jessie began writing books to help support the family, namely A Year of American Travel: Narrative of Personal Experience (1878), a story about her journey to California in 1849, and Souvenirs of My Time (1887).

From 1878 to 1881, John C. Frémont served as Governor of the Territory of Arizona. Three months after being allowed to resign from the Army with pension, he died in 1890 in a hotel in New York.

After the death of her husband, the Congress, in recognition of his valued services, granted Jessie a widow’s pension of $2,000 a year. In 1891, she moved into a home at the corner of 28th and Hoover Streets in Los Angeles, that was presented to her by a committee of ladies of the city as a token of their great regard.[7][8] She remained in good health until about two and a half years before her death when an accident made her an invalid, but she was able to use a wheelchair and enjoy the outdoors.

Jessie Benton Frémont died at age 78 at her home in Los Angeles.[9][10] A huge box of fragrant and beautiful roses were sent on December 29, 1902, by Mrs. James A. Garfield. The rites of the Episcopal Church were conducted at 10:30 a.m. on December 30, at Christ Church, on the corner of Pico and Flower Streets.[11] She was cremated and her ashes interred in Rosedale Cemetery.

The Benton-Getty Art Dynasty

I will be sending Governor Gavin Newsom a Cultural Package informing him how to FIGHT the Fake Small Government Governor of Florida. Desantos is merging as the leader of – OTHER GOVERNMENT – that has a manufactured culture bent on overthrowing our traditional culture.

Gavin Newsom For The Arts

Posted on May 12, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

On cue, Governor Gavin Newsom held a press conference and announced massive aide for the Homeless and The Arts. I had just sent my business proposal to the City Government of Belmont, who have no Arts Program that I am aware of. I had talked with a friend about getting Grace Slick to do paintings in Charlatan Square as part of my Cultural Package for the Belmont that needs to get the Governor’s attention, being, I am kin to Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, as is Belmont Pioneer, Carl Janke. Michael Wilding married Aileen Getty, and thus Carl Janke is in the Getty Family Tree. This Getty Tree For The Arts adopted Gavin when he was a teenager. The J. Paul Getty father and son moved to England. Junior was Knighted by the Queen and was titled “Sir” after he became a British subject. Liz Taylor was Knighted by the Queen for her contribution to the Film Industry that made California great.

I have taken steps to be awarded several grants. A year from now, I hope to have my own room at the Getty Villa where I am allowed to roam freely admiring the art of my ex-brother-in-law, Garth Benton, and working on my paper and historic masterpiece………..

‘The Doomsday Prophecies of Wealthy Men’

I will be wearing the best headset money can buy with a endless soundtrack from the DaVinci Code, the Phantom of the Opera, and the best of Leonard Cohen. Young scholars will turn their heads as I pass them in halls.

“May the force be with you Professor Obi-Wan Kenobi!”

“Have you saved our planet yet, Obi-Wan?”

“He can’t hear you. He lives in his own world.”

I have also taken steps to receive a grant from the Paul Mellon foundation. Paul is in my rosy family tree via Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, and Warner.  I introduced the Pre-Raphaelites to Christine Rosamond Benton. We are ‘The Last Pre-Raphaelites’.

I just made an offer to be Drew Benton’s Mentor. I can show her how to be a scholar in a year. Above is her mother at the Getty Mansion in New York.

Rose City Planners

On this day, August 30, 2018, I found, Rose City Planners, a International Company that will pull together the best team of City Planners – possible! During the Great Depression many artists were funded by the WPA to produce civic works of art. Today, our cities have been forever enriched by the work of these magnificent artists who were not out to become famous. They gave way more that they received. Their historic contributions can be added on to, if their common philosophy is understood – and harnessed!  These men considered themselves Bohemians.

Many city planners and city governments understand that We The People want our downtowns to have a Bohemian flavor and look. This is the recipe that attracts people. Unfortunately, many city governments are hiring outsiders, Bohemian pretenders, who put the Capitalist Quick Buck Masters at the top, and the artist down at the bottom next to Vegetable Stands. These frauds keep saying they are protecting our city history and founding fathers, but – they lie! When my company gets off the ground we will do a through research to see how much history, and Bohemian Culture was bulldozed into the ground. Much can still be saved – if you know how!

Rose City Planners will reach out to foreign cities, and establish a Cultural Exchange. I am looking for Japanese Investors, and backers for ‘The Royal Janitor’. I founded ‘The Wandering Star Studios. I am poised to take over the work of J.R. Tolkien, also. I will relocate my company to Portland Oregon.

Building The City Beautiful

On the my last day in Vancouver I heard there is a plan to tear down the last freeway in that city. Here is a video of the Hippie Museum that shows some Hippie fashions:


Here is another blog of mine where I honor Boho fashion.


Here is the statue Pacifica being blown-up by the Navy:

Ina Coolbrith gave Joaquin Miller his look that he took to England where he read his poems to the Queen. The Pre-Raphaelite Artists took him in. Miller was a friend of my grandmother. The original hippies of the Bay Area were influence by Miller, Ina, London, and Sterling. Miller made a life-size statue of my kin, John Fremont, who looks west from the heights of Oakland. El Capitan looks like Gandalf.

Thomas Hart Benton did lithographs and a painting for John Steinbeck’s ‘Grapes of Wrath’. This is huge! This puts a Literary Giant in the Benton Family Creative Tree. How could the three Rosamond biographers have missed this? Here’s a huge clue?


I am overwhelmed by the History I appear to be the Caretaker of. For this reason I am founding Royal Rosamond College, and am seeking funding.

There are two world famous artists with the last name BENTON. Thomas Hart Benton, and Christine Rosamond Benton. Not one of the three authors that were blessed by attorney Sydney Morris to publish Rosamond’s biography, put these two artists together in their lying biographies that humiliated Christine, her mothers, and her teacher.


Above is a photograph of a man humiliating one of Thomas’ works of art. People all over the world express their outrage. Wait till they read about Faulkner’s ‘Dunkin The Frog’ that was going to put into the public domain as a Rosamond. Not only is this Art Forgery, it is a direct attack on the Creative Language that Artists speak to each other with – for free!

In two of the three works of art above, we see artists who were members of the Synchromism movement. Stanton Macdonald-Wright did ‘Yin Synchrom’ in 1925, and Thomas Hart Benton did ‘The Rape of Persephone’ in 1939. Is Benton sending a message to Stanton, saying he is beholding to his influence, or, did it just turn out this way in what Carl Jung titled synchronicity? Stanton included Gloria Stuart in one of his murals. Is Stuart’s painting of a nude – with tiger – part of this messaging? Is she saying;

“Don’t leave me out, don’t forget about me – you Bohemian good ol boys!”

The Getty Bond-John Line

Posted on November 12, 2021 by Royal Rosamond Press

Michael Wilding wanted to be an artist when he was a teenager – and became one! Did his wife, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, see her husband’s artwork – and watch him paint? Was Liz reminded of the artist Augustus John, whose house she grew up in? Did she consider promoting her husband’s art like her father and uncle promoted John? Did she see the Getty family promoting the artistic legacy of Christopher Wilding when he became engaged to Aileen Getty? Was Liz and Aileen aware they were kin to Ian Fleming via Talitha Pol who married the Anglophile, John Paul Getty 11, the father-in-law of Christopher? Liz married the son of Conrad Hilton who was married to Zsa Zsa Gabor – who dated J. Paul Getty. Did they talk about being married? Gabor married a prince who ran against Meg Whitman for Governor of California. Did Christopher Wilding meet Gavin Newsom, who is the partner of the Pelosi family in Plumpjack? His mother married Jack Werner.

My late sister, the world famous artist Christine Rosamond Benton, was introduced to Garth Benton, by his friend, Lawrence Chazen, who was our father’s private lender. Vic Presco told Larry his daughter was famous, and he talked about the Benton murals. My sister’s and out father formed a family partnership with the legacy of Vic’s mother who wanted to leave to all six members of my natal family. Vic was surprised when I told him Chazen had formed a partnership in the first Rosamond gallery. Why didn’t Chazen tell Vic? Vic was not happy to learn Larry was the number one creditor in the Probate. Vic dies not knowing Liz was our kin – and Ian Fleming!

With the discovery there is the Welch name John in the genealogy of Samantha Bond, who played Moneypenny, and Rosamund on Downton Abby, and learning Wilding starred in a movie about the Women’s Royal Naval Service, then it appears the limited horizon of these BONDED families has been greatly expanded – by me! I can see – for miles! Time to entrust these collected visions under the banner of Royal Rosamond Press, that has been publishing installment of my Bond book ‘The Royal Janitor’.

Above is the mural Garth Benton rendered for Anne and Gordon Getty. Will an agent come forth and represent my Mystery Muse, who wearing a Cameo, will make a unforgettable extra in a period production, such as Downton Abby. She is British. I can see her in a Naval uniform.

The Taylor, Getty, and Rosamond Children | Rosamond Press

After his wife’s death in 1907, Augustus John’s mistress Dorothy “Dorelia” McNeill, a Bohemian style icon, became his partner; they lived together most of the time from 1904 until his death and had two children, but never married.

  1. Poppet John (1912–1997), John’s daughter by Dorothy, married the Dutch painter Willem Jilts Pol (1905–1988).
  2. Vivien John (1915–1994) was a notable painter.

Willem Pol’s daughter was

  1. Talitha Pol (1940–1971) by an earlier marriage to Arnoldine Adriana “Adine” Mees (1908–1948). (Thus, Talitha was step-granddaughter of both Augustus and Dorothy). Talitha was a fashion icon of 1960s London, who married billionaire oil heir, John Paul Getty Jr.

Here’s a fuller look at the Getty family tree as it is known to the public today:

JEAN PAUL GETTY had five children

  • George Getty II had one child
    • Anne Catherine Getty Earhart had one child
      • Sara Earhart
  • Jean Ronald Getty had four children
    • Christopher Ronald Getty had three children
      • Isabel Getty
      • Robert Maximilian Getty
      • Conrad Getty
    • Stephanie Marie Getty-Waibel had three children
      • Marietherese Waibel
      • Robert Maximilian Getty
      • Sigourney Waibel
      • Vanesa Waibel
    • Cecile Karin Margarita Getty
    • Christina Therese Getty
  • John Paul Getty II had five children
    • John Paul Getty III had two children
      • Anna Getty
      • Balthazar Getty had four children
        • Cassius Paul Getty
        • Grace Getty
        • Violet Getty
        • June Catherine Getty
    • Aileen Getty had two children
      • Caleb Wilding
      • Andrew Wilding
    • Mark Getty had three children
      • Alexander Getty
      • Joseph Getty
      • Julius Getty
    • Adriadne Getty had two children
      • Natalia Williams
      • August Williams
    • Adriadne Getty had two children
  • Gordon Getty had seven children
    • Gordon Peter Getty
    • Andrew Rork Getty
    • John Gilbert Getty had one child
      • Ivy Getty
    • William Paul Getty
    • Nicolette Getty
    • Kendalle Getty
    • Alexandra Getty
  • Timothy Ware Getty

It was a match made in Hollywood: Elizabeth Taylor’s son and oil tycoon J. Paul Getty’s granddaughter. But the script had a peculiar twist—Christopher Wilding, 25, Liz’s offspring by her late second husband, Michael Wilding, could only plight his troth to Aileen Getty, 20, under a full moon and over salami and crackers at a cocktail party. There won’t be a wedding for three years because her grandfather’s will stipulates that Aileen will be disinherited (and lose $100,000 annually) if she marries before she is 23.
No matter, Elizabeth clearly dotes on the couple. Leaving her husband, Sen. John Warner, in Washington, she sallied West and rallied old friends. Martin Mull, Sissy Spacek, Roddy McDowell, Carol Burnett and Dudley Moore were among the 150 guests at a formal engagement party held at the Brentwood home of Aileen’s divorced mother, Gail Harris Getty. Timothy Leary showed up, as did Taylor’s mother, Sara, 89, and Aileen’s two brothers—J. Paul III, who lost an ear to Italian kidnappers in 1973, and Mark, in from his British prep school, Harrow.

Merlin and The Badland Muse

I wanted to teach Belle my sister’s style, and make Rena the Muse of the Age. But – BEING OLD – I was subject to all kinds of weird suspicions.

Here is NYC artist Anna Weyant, who is having an affair with a 71 year old man. She is Vivian to his Merlin. I have an idea for a movie or series.

Synopsis: Rodan Redcape is three generations Montana. At 26 she takes up art and has a studio in her grandparents barn. She has her first show in New York and is preyed upon. Her brothers are members of The Yellowstone Pride. They jump in a U-Haul and raid the art gallery where Rodan meets the love of her life – in the chaos! He is seventy years – young! Rodan convinces Fredum Glacier to move to Montana. Being four generations New York Village, he is leery. Alas, he relents, and is confronted by Rodan’s childhood sweetheart, Clanx McSinkworthy. who tries to lure Fredrum into one of his tiger traps. Fredum employs Clanx as a model, and he is soon the talk of the town.

When Rena called sheriff, Dan Mayland, and filed a false police report wherein she claims I was stalking her, she in affect put up a WANTED poster in her county, and the whole State of Montana. How many citizens of the fine State, where my grandfather was born, have heard the egregious slander, and extreme abuse, coming from an old girlfriend who I claimed was my Muse, and was the Muse of my famous sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, the granddaughter of Royal Rosamond, who is kin to famous Benton artists. The Benton family also helped secure and procure the Oregon Territory for the United States.

Rena Eastons’ four page letter began with a recital of the dire straights she and her husband were in that could not help but solicit a desire to help this couple, which I publicly offered on my blog the day before Rena contacted the sheriff, and made false accusations against me. How can I not conclude Rena is still in that “dark and dangerous place” she told me about in her letter where she apologizes to me for “being a abusive girl”.

“Greg, I want you to know & listen. I apologize for being an abusive girl when our paths crossed in 1970. I had come out of a dark and dangerous place, and you helped me. Please forgive me. No one deserves abuse. I have learned a lot now.”

I Drank With Tom Hanks

“Well, it’s sort of a cross.’ Those are delightful scavenger hunts that are about as accurate to history as the James Bond movies are to espionage…All we were doing is promising a diversion.”

I drank at a table in The Hut with Tom Hanks who went to elementary school in Oakland. His black schoolmate brought him in after his first movie. Are DeSantos and Hanks on a collision course in -The White Rubberized Zone – that Pence made famous?

Ten years ago I founded the Western Nation of Fromond and bid Democrats to move into these states. The drought has nixed my dream.

Gavin Newsom and Ron DeSantis Wage Taunting War as Florida Governor Calls SF a ‘Dumpster Fire’ (sfist.com)

Newsom has been going out of his way to pick fights with the Florida governor for more than a year now, throwing shade at Florida in a New York Times interview last June, and pointing out on The View last December that there were “53% more deaths per capita in the state of Florida” than in California. In the wake of the fallout from Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill and resulting spat with the Walt Disney Co., Newsom took another unprovoked swipe.

Dec. 14: The fake electors convene in seven states: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Some falsely declare they are duly elected (raising questions about whether they broke the law), while in a couple of states they make their status as electors contingent on the election results being overturned. In some states, they fail to meet the legal requirements outlined by Chesebro (i.e. failing to meet in the Capitol in Michigan and not having the secretary of state present in Nevada).

Trump aide Stephen Miller cites the fake electors, saying that “we are going to send those results up to Congress.” They are initially pitched as precautionary — in place just in case courts later overturn the results.

Tom Hanks Calls ‘Da Vinci Code’ Trilogy ‘Hooey,’ Not ‘Good Commerce’ at the End

Tom Hanks has cracked “The Da Vinci Code”…and dubbed it “hooey.”

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Oscar winner Hanks called the Ron Howard-helmed trilogy “as cynical as a crossword puzzle” and an outrageous adventure story ripe for the box office. The franchise kicked off in 2006 before spurring two sequels, “Angels & Demons” and “Inferno.”

“God, that was a commercial enterprise,” Hanks said. “Yeah, those Robert Langdon sequels are hooey. ‘The Da Vinci Code’ was hooey.”

Hanks continued, “I mean, [author] Dan Brown, God bless him, says, ‘Here is a sculpture in a place in Paris! No, it’s way over there. See how a cross is formed on a map? Well, it’s sort of a cross.’ Those are delightful scavenger hunts that are about as accurate to history as the James Bond movies are to espionage…All we were doing is promising a diversion.”

DeSantis’ ‘Stop WOKE Act’ faces court test as universities become targets. At issue: free speech

John Kennedy – Yesterday 2:53 PM

Florida Legislature: How are teachers supposed to teach history with ‘anti-woke’ laws?Unmute


TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Ron DeSantis’ “Stop WOKE Act” is facing its first federal court test after weeks of being celebrated by the political right for restricting race-based teaching and training in schools, universities and workplaces.

A civil liberties organization, which has sided with Florida Republicans in the past on campus speech issues, is among those now condemning DeSantis’ approach.

“It’s intended to chill speech,” said Adam Steinbaugh, an attorney with the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE). “The entire point of the new law is to set out certain categories or concepts that the state disdains and says you can’t introduce.”

Much of the debate over “Stop WOKE” has centered on public schools and businesses.

But the law may be the most significant among several measures DeSantis signed that put his imprint on higher education in Florida, not only restricting speech but also adding new limits on tenure for Florida professors and changes to how public colleges and universities are accredited.

DeSantis signs ‘Stop WOKE Act’: DeSantis signs into law ‘Stop WOKE Act’ to restrict race discussions in Florida

What is ‘wokeness?’ How the meaning of woke evolved: What does it mean to be ‘woke,’ and why does Florida Governor Ron DeSantis want to stop it?

Draft legislation shaped by the governor’s office also suggests that DeSantis may want even more control over faculty hiring at colleges and universities if he wins reelection in November, heightening anxiety in Florida and across the nation’s higher ed community.

“People in hiring positions are telling us they’re hearing from professors in other states who question, ‘What’s the political environment like on your campus?’” said Andrew Gothard, president of the United Faculty of Florida, a union representing 25,000 members across the state.

“They’re wondering if government is going to keep them from doing their jobs or research. Clearly, based on these kinds of questions, there’s a narrative and concerns about working in Florida,” Gothard said.

While “Stop WOKE” may be the latest battleground, the nonprofit FIRE has fought restrictions on campus speech in Florida before. But then it was with the support of conservatives.

Conservatives once hailed free speech

FIRE, which receives funding from several conservative foundations, supported a 2018 law signed by then-Republican Gov. Rick Scott intended to eliminate “free speech zones” on Florida campuses, a move hailed by conservative lawmakers who felt these zones were being used to quarantine right-leaning speakers.

That measure gained added focus because it was seen as opening more campuses to the political right. It emerged shortly after protests rocked the University of Florida ahead of a speech by white nationalist Richard Spencer, a leader of 2017’s neo-Nazi torchlight parade in Charlottesville, Virginia.

FIRE, though, has broken with Florida Republicans over “Stop WOKE” because, Steinbaugh said, it hammers speech suppression into Florida law.

“For conservatives who think this is a good idea and that maybe these topics or concepts should be verboten in higher education, I’d say, consider what a legislature in a left-leaning state might do with the authority to say which subjects are true or false, or can or can’t be discussed,” Steinbaugh said. “It’s a Pandora’s box that you don’t want to open.”

FIRE is asking Florida universities to narrowly interpret the new “Stop WOKE” law, set to take effect July 1. It also has reached out to faculty members, possibly ahead of a lawsuit if educators feel their ability to discuss areas of expertise is limited by the new speech restrictions. 

Lawsuit pinned to First Amendment

But a federal lawsuit seeking to overturn the measure is already slated for its first hearing Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Mark Walker in Tallahassee. The challenge was filed by the Jacksonville firm of Sheppard, White, Kachergus, DeMaggio & Wilkison, known for its civil rights work.

Plaintiffs include a pair of high school teachers, a professor at the University of Central Florida, and a soon-to-be kindergartner from Nassau County. They’re asking Walker to stop the law from going into effect. FIRE is not among the plaintiffs.

Along with violating free speech rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution, the lawsuit claims the Stop Woke law gives the state power to “arbitrarily decide what speech is prohibited and what speech is permitted.”

“As such, plaintiffs have every reason to believe that these vague standards can and will be used to silence speech on these topics with which Florida’s GOP politicians disagree,” the lawsuit said.

Attorneys for DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody have countered by arguing that First Amendment issues are not at play. Instead, “public school curriculum set by elected officials is government speech,” that earlier court decisions have said can be regulated.

“The in-class instruction offered by state-employed educators is also pure government speech, not the speech of the educators themselves,” the state argues in defending the law.

What is Critical Race Theory?Unmute


What ‘Stop WOKE’ restricts

“Stop WOKE” was approved in March, mostly along party lines in the Republican-led Legislature. It prohibits any teaching that could make students feel they bear personal responsibility for historic wrongs because of their race, color, sex or national origin.

It also blocks businesses from using diversity practices or training that could make employees feel guilty for similar reasons. Anyone offended could sue an institution or individual, arguing their civil rights were violated by being made subject to such instruction.

Universities also could lose state funding.

Speaking at a charter school in Hialeah Gardens when he signed the law in April, DeSantis condemned “pernicious ideologies” like critical race theory, which examines the role racial discrimination has played in shaping American history and modern society.

He also blistered the media, “elites,” “leftists” and Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia.

While the measure earned its nickname when DeSantis termed it the “Stop the Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees Act,” the Legislature settled on a simpler title, calling it the “Individual Freedom Act.”

DeSantis picks his targets

DeSantis, though, embraced the attack on “woke,” which found its place in his policy agenda that included a move to strip Disney World of its special tax district because of its parent company’s opposition to another priority of the governor, the parental rights legislation opponents branded “Don’t Say Gay.”

“In Florida, we will not let the far-left woke agenda take over our schools and workplaces,” DeSantis said. “There is no place for indoctrination or discrimination in Florida.”

DeSantis clearly views higher education as a big target for change.

United Faculty of Florida has already sued the governor over “intellectual freedom” surveys being distributed to faculty, students and employees at colleges and universities that the union sees aimed at stifling open discussions on campuses.

The annual surveys, approved under a law last year, are to be analyzed by university and college leaders in a report scheduled to be released in September.

This year, DeSantis signed new legislation that could make it more difficult for faculty to retain tenure, which has been a standard at universities since the 1940s. Tenure was enacted to blunt political interference and give faculty freedom to discuss and research controversial topics without fear of dismissal.

But DeSantis has condemned what he termed “lifetime appointments” for professors, adding he wants to “make sure the faculty are held accountable.”

Critics say political payback at play

The law also requires universities to periodically change accreditation agencies every five- to 10-years.

That provision was viewed by critics as retaliation by DeSantis after the current agency used by most schools criticized the University of Florida for attempting to deny two professors from testifying as expert witnesses in a voting rights lawsuit.

The agency also cautioned Florida State University during its presidential search when the governor’s former Education Commissioner, Richard Corcoran, was an applicant.

Yet even with these changes, DeSantis appears to want more.

A 70-page proposal drafted by Republican lawmakers at the governor’s request and obtained by the news site, Seeking Rents, outlined plans for giving university boards of trustees — heavily influenced by DeSantis — faculty-hiring authority, taking it away from school presidents.

Similarly, the proposal would give the university system’s Board of Governors, whose members are mostly governor appointees, power to investigate university presidents, fire employees, review existing degree programs and veto budgets.

The measure never made it past the concept stage. But many think it shows what may be in store for colleges and universities in a DeSantis second term.

“We’re at a tipping point right now,” said Gothard of United Faculty. “We have a Legislature and a governor who are taking their time to attack groups and individuals who disagree with their political ideology.”
