The Tripod and the Umbrella Man

On November 22, 1963, the wages of truth were paid to John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Most people believe he was assassinated, supposedly by Lee Oswald or the Mafia.

I believe his death was a ritual killing. Let me tell you why.

If you believe in the Bible, you know there will be an antichrist. Satan knows this too, and he is always looking for someone who wants to play the role. On the human side of the fence, the role of antichrist is an extremely tempting one. His reign may be short, but he will for a time be the most powerful ruler in human history.

I believe that John F. Kennedy was in fact auditioning for this role, and his bid for the role of antichrist was the most significant one in our lifetimes until the Presidency of George W. Bush.

Jack Kennedy portrayed himself to the public in the persona of Apollo, who is the rider of the white horse of the apocalypse. His wife Jackie was portrayed to the public as Apollo’s twin sister Artemis. You can read about Apollo and Artemis to see what I mean @ http://www.pantheon.org/articles/a/apollo.html and http://www.pantheon.org/articles/a/artemis.html

Jack Kennedy also portrayed himself to the public as Apollyon. Apollo brings light, while Apollyon brings darkness: a darkening of the  Sun (i.e., an eclipse). A solar eclipse occurs when the moon (a feminine symbol) comes between the earth and the Sun (a male symbol). Anyone bringing Sun and moon together is potentially guilty of being Apollyon. JFK did this in at least two ways:

  • His marriage to Jackie Kennedy symbolized bringing Sun (Apollo) and moon (Artemis) together.
  • His space effort known as the Apollo Program was intended to bring Apollo (Sun) to the moon (Artemis).

[As an aside, I believe this is what Josef Mengele was trying to do with his experiments with twins during the Holocaust. By getting twins to mate, he was trying to create Apollyon.]

In addition, the island on which the so-called Statue of Liberty resides was once named Kennedy Island, raising the possibility that the Mother of Harlots was riding the ruddy Irishman Jack Kennedy (which, if the claims above his sexual appetite are true, would be an accurate portrayal).

Furthermore, the actual so-called number of the beast in the Book of Revelation is the three letters which look a bit like XIC on the third line of this fragment of papyrus:

If you read them backwards (as would be the case if they were written in Hebrew), they appear to be the letters CIX. In Roman numerals, this is the number 109. As many of you know, Jack Kennedy’s legend started with the story of his command of Patrol Torpedo boat PT-109 in World War II. Those exploits, including the sinking of his boat, the rescue of his crew, and his triumphant return from certain death made him symbolically “the beast who rose up out of the sea” with the number of the beast’s name “109” forever associated with him. As I said, he was a very strong candidate for the role of antichrist.

So what happened in Dealey Plaza? Having announced his candidacy for the role, Jack Kennedy got his final “screen test” on that fateful day in 1963. As it is written in the Book of Revelation:

And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. (Revelation 13:3 KJV)

To be the antichrist, one must survive a deadly wound to the head. JFK was put to the test, and he failed.

Some of the things present in Dealey Plaza that day strongly suggest that his death was in fact the ritual killing of Apollo / Apollyon of which I speak:

  • His twin sister Artemis (Jackie) was sitting next to him.
  • The railroad bridge toward which his car was heading when he was shot formed a “triple underpass”. The tripod was one of Apollo’s symbols.
  • As his car drove toward the triple underpass, it was entering the flood plain of the Trinity River.
  • If you believe Oliver Stone’s movie JFK, the assassins laid down a “triangulation of fire”.
  • And then there was the “umbrella man” who displayed his umbrella near the point where the first bullet struck the President. An umbrella (or parasol) was originally used for blocking out the Sun (hence the name). Its presence at the site of the killing of Apollo (extinguishing of the Sun’s light) suggests it was there for its symbolic power.

If JFK was consciously portraying himself as Apollo / Apollyon, it is possible he knew in advance that he would be put to the test. If instead members of America’s cults were setting him up for the test, it’s worth asking whether they did it as the final test of his candidacy, or whether they did it to kill him to forestall the end time events they knew would follow if he were to be anointed as the antichrist.

We’ll probably never know. But it’s also interesting to speculate at this point who would benefit from the failed candidacy of potential antichrist John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The names that come to mind are his successor, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and the man who “saved” us after 9 11, George W. Bush.

Maybe that’s why Lee Harvey Oswald’s friend George de Mohrenschildt had “Poppy” Bush’s name and phone number in his address book.

NEXT: What about Abe Lincoln and Bobby Kennedy?

America’s Sacrificial Kingship

Most people think that the American government is a democracy. Wrong! We are a republic, at least on paper. In a democracy the people would make decisions directly. In a republic decisions are made by the ruling class.

The executive branch of our government is, however, a sacrificial kingship. The President, who currently possesses the type of unchecked power that kings used to have, stands for election every four years and is subject to replacement. Thus, symbolically, every four or eight years we remove our king from office and replace him with another king.

But we at times go even further than that. Starting in 1840, every twenty years (i.e., 1860, 1880, 1900, 1920, 1940, 1960, 1980, and 2000) the President elected in that year has been subject to an additional sanction, resulting in a true sacrificial kingship:

  • 1840 – William Henry Harrison (died)
  • 1860 – Abraham Lincoln (assassinated)
  • 1880 – James A. Garfield (assassinated)
  • 1900 – William McKinley (assassinated)
  • 1920 – Warren G. Harding (died)
  • 1940 – Franklin D. Roosevelt (died)
  • 1960 – John F. Kennedy (assassinated)
  • 1980 – Ronald Reagan (assassinated, then resuscitated)
  • 2000 – George W. Bush (descended into the pit, then reemerged into the world of the living)

Some say that this 20-year “curse” should be blamed on Tecumseh and his brother, since the first to die (Harrison) had defeated Tecumseh’s alliance. Tecumseh's brother Tenskwatawa, known as the Prophet, supposedly set a curse against Harrison and future White House occupants who became President during years with the same end number as Harrison. I say instead that this 20-year event is the recurring celebration of a system designed by Thomas Jefferson himself.

You may recall the part of Jefferson’s so-called Tree of Liberty letter in which he wrote, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is its natural manure.” Earlier in the letter, while discussing Shay’s Rebellion in Massachusetts, he also stated, “God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion.”

I believe that Jefferson knew that under a government like ours, the people could only preserve their liberties if they maintained a system of near-continuous rebellion. Therefore, we have constant wars to kill the patriots (at least every twenty years), and every twenty years we also sacrifice the President (who as our king represents the tyrant whom the people thus keep under control).

Note that the rules of the system have been altered in recent years as the tyrants grow in power. Ronald Reagan survived his assassination attempt (more on that subject later), and George W. Bush was triumphantly resurrected and anointed following his short journey in to the pit at Ground Zero (see my previous posts on the subject).

Will this Jeffersonian tradition continue to be celebrated? I doubt it. In a “globalized” society in which there will be no more patriots, and in which the only remaining tyrant will be the unassailable global government itself, new springs of blood will be needed to refresh the Tree of Liberty, new sources for its natural manure. People will continue to be sacrificed in an effort to keep the tree alive, but it won’t be any more of our tyrannical Presidents.

NEXT: Exactly why was John F. Kennedy killed? (Hint: It’s not what we have been told.)

The children of the future speak to us now (and no, they're not telling you to vote for Obama; most of these things will happen no matter whom you vote for).


Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!
Mother of Harlots: Conclusion (for now)

The President we call Ulysses S. Grant was instrumental in the efforts to construct the idol on Liberty Island. He wrote letters to the wealthy of his day soliciting funds for the idol, and on his last final full day in office he signed a joint resolution of Congress that authorized the President to accept the statue when it was presented by France and to select a site for it. As previously stated, the formal site selection was made by William Tecumseh Sherman, Grant’s partner in Civil War butchery.

Grant’s birth name was Hiram Ulysses Grant. In the Bible, Hiram was the King of Tyre who sent architects, workmen, cedar wood, and gold to Solomon to build the First Temple in Jerusalem. In mythology, Ulysses was the Greek warrior who invented the Trojan Horse. He also is one of the few persons to have descended into Hell and then returned to the world of the living. This aspect of the mythology of Ulysses is commemorated by the fact that Grant is the only dead President who is entombed above ground and not buried (leading to the trick question, “Who is buried in Grant’s Tomb?” whose answer is “No one.”) The Trojan Horse aspect of his mythology is contained in the idol standing on that pedestal atop Fort Wood.

The Black Hills War with the Indians which started in the final years of Grant’s Presidency was, as previously stated, caused by violation of the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 and the subsequent gold rush into Indian Territory. The final act of that war was the Wounded Knee Massacre in 1890. One of the Army’s excuses for the massacre was that the so-called Ghost Dance Religion had been causing unrest among the Lakota Sioux. You can read about this “religion” @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_Dance

The thing I find most interesting about the Ghost Dance Religion is that it is a quirky but literal interpretation of the Book of Revelation. It is based upon the belief that God will destroy the wicked, repair the damage done to the earth by them, and resurrect the dead.

So what did the United States do when faced with peoples who actually believed what is written in the Bible? The US Army slaughtered them using rapid-fire light artillery Hotchkiss guns; men, women, and children all were indiscriminately killed. Not unlike what was done to the so-called Branch Davidians. In the case of the Lakota Sioux and their Ghost Dance, Americans were in the role of the “wicked” whom God would destroy, not unlike what the Branch Davidians believed.

Many of America's founders believed that the so-called American Indians were the Lost Tribes of Israel. Others believed that although they did not recognize the divine nature of Jesus, the Indians lived lives that were more in keeping with the teachings of Jesus than the lives lived by us so-called Christians.

All of which raises the question, “Who are the saints with whose blood the Mother of Harlots is drunk?” In my view, it’s the blood of people who love God and actually LIVE by Christian principles. That description fits many if not most indigenous peoples, in whose slaughter America has been both instrumental and zealous.

So, if you’re one of those people who listen to popular ministers like Joel Osteen and who think that everything is fine, keep on doing what you’re doing. As it is written, you have your reward.

But, if you’re like me and believe that it’s morally wrong to use food as a weapon; steal the resources of the world’s people and call it “free trade” or “Manifest Destiny”; kill unarmed women and children and call it “collateral damage”; and desecrate the Bible, the Koran, or the relics of other religions; then it’s time to take action. And the only action you can take that will make any difference at all is one or both of the following:

And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. (Matthew 5:30 KJV)

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Revelation 18:4 KJV)

You will have to decide for yourselves what these passages mean for you. As I said before, I am not a messiah, and I have no wish to be a false prophet.

More about the number of his name

The Book of Revelation in the Bible says the following about the antichrist:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Revelation 13:16-18 KJV)

And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. (Revelation 15:2 KJV)

Let’s make the reasonable assumptions that the buying and selling will be done using currency and that the antichrist’s currency will contain the elements mentioned above:

  • The image of the beast,
  • The name of the beast,
  • The number of his name,
  • The mark of the beast (maybe not, since it will be in the right hand or forehead).

Let’s examine a currency in widespread use today: United States currency. Specifically, let’s look at coins only, since coins are issued by the Treasury while paper currency is issued by a private bank which is not a government agency (the so-called Federal Reserve Bank). In addition, coins were the most common form of currency when the Book of Revelation was written.

The penny is a good example, and other US coins in circulation have the same features:

In this context, we have the following correlations:

  • Image = Abraham Lincoln
  • Name = United States of America
  • Number = E pluribus unum
  • Mark = Liberty (or, In God We Trust)

Here are some things to consider while taking this all in:

(1)    The Bible says this about an instance when Jesus cast out an unclean spirit which entered into swine:

For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. (Mark 5:8-9 KJV)

“My name is legion” could be interpreted to be the equivalent of “e pluribus unum”.

(2)    The United States of America is thought to be named after Amerigo Vespucci.

If “e pluribus unum” is the number of the beast, it is the number of a man (Amerigo, known to us as America).

How Does A Baetyl Live?

On December 8, 1980, the wages of truth were paid to John Lennon.

Fourteen years earlier, John had given an interview which was published in the London Evening Standard and which contained the following words (you can see the entire printed interview @ http://headsup.freeshell.org/beatles-articles/standard.html):

'Christianity will go,' he said. 'It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I will be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first-rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me.'

When those words were reprinted in the United States, all hell broke loose. Beatles records were smashed and burned, demonstrations were held, and threats were made. And the controversy never really went away, no matter what John later said in clarification.

John had made a giant mistake: like David Koresh, he had compared himself to Jesus, perhaps even implying to some that he (John Lennon) thought he was worthy to open the seals of the seven-sealed book. But had he really said anything not supported by the Bible? Consider the two following scriptures:

The day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first. (2 Thessalonians 2:2-3 KJV)

And it was given unto him (the beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. (Revelation 13:7 KJV)

His disciples were thick and ordinary. Jesus Himself said that they twisted things and got them wrong. It wasn’t until they were filled with The Holy Spirit that they had the courage, the wisdom, and the spirit to go forth and preach the Gospel.

No, John Lennon’s crime was not that he had contradicted the Bible, but that he dared to compare himself to Jesus and to say (even unintentionally) that he was in a sense better than Jesus (i.e., more popular). This is a big no-no in the United States of America!

But there’s more to it than that. You see, in addition to the Demeter Cult there is a second cult in America: the Cybele Cult. Not only had John run afoul of America’s Christians, he had also run afoul of her Corybantes.

The Phrygian goddess Cybele had been worshipped in ancient Greece and Rome. She was an exotic mystery-goddess who rode in a lion-drawn chariot to the accompaniment of wild music, wine, and a disorderly, ecstatic following. She had a transgender or eunuch priesthood. She was associated with mountains, town and city walls, fertile nature, and wild animals, especially lions. Like the Roman goddess Hera, she wore a crown called a polos, which is similar to the tiara-like crown on the so-called “Statue of Liberty”. Some additional facts about her are quite illuminating:

  • She was said to dwell in caverns;
  • She had wild, ecstatic followers who would tear out their hair;
  • Her orgiastic rites accompanied by wild cries and the frenzied music of flutes, drums, and cymbals; and
  • She was worshipped in Pessinus (later Rome) as a sacred stone or meteorite known as a Baetyl (pronounced just like “Beatle”).

The “Beatles” of the so-called British music invasion had the following characteristics:

  • They were discovered in the Cavern Club (which their manager Brian Epstein called "a cellar full of noise");
  • They had wild, ecstatic followers who would scream and pull on their hair;
  • Their orgiastic concerts were accompanied by wild cries and the frenzied music of guitars, drums, and cymbals; and
  • Thanks to that 1966 interview by John Lennon, it may have appeared to some that America’s youth had taken up worshipping The Baetyls instead of Jesus Christ.

And to make matters even worse, there’s the picture of John standing in front of The Mother of Harlots:

What that picture may have symbolically implied to some (within the context of what I have written in this blog) is the following:

John Lennon, who has claimed to be more popular in his day than was Jesus in His, is the beast who rose up out of the sea (the fort, the ten seals of the pedestal) and the beast who rose up out of the earth (the V hand sign). That's his girlfriend standing behind him, The Mother of Harlots, and he is her Baetyl.

I have no idea whether John was aware of this symbolism. If he were, I don’t think he would have posed for this picture. If he was aware, perhaps he meant it as a warning for the rest of us. Whatever the case, although we believe that Mark David Chapman pulled the trigger that killed John Lennon, it was America that put the gun in his hand: the America of killer Christians and worshipers of Demeter and Cybele.

By the way, there is speculation that the Black Stone in the Kaaba of Mecca (see my October 6 post) is the original sacred stone of the goddess Cybele. If that is true then Muslims are venerating one of the original Baetyls.

[First there were the Baetyls, and then came the Rolling Stones.]

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

This year the Hajj runs from October 24-29. While Muslims are symbolically stoning the devil, Americans will be deciding which of his demons to elect as our President.

Some further thoughts on the Mother of Harlots:

The sculptor of the idol on Liberty Island, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, called his creation “La Liberté éclairant le monde (Liberty Enlightening the World)”. During the period he was crafting it, the other famous French sculptor of the day, François-Auguste-René Rodin, was working on a sculpture named “The Gates of Hell” (shown below). The Rodin museum told me that Bartholdi and Rodin never worked together, but if the “Statue of Liberty’s” torch does indeed represent Demeter peering into the Gate of Hell looking for her daughter Persephone the two sculptures make an interesting contemporaneous pair. Maybe someday Rodin’s sculpture can replace the doors currently on the sally port of Fort Wood to complete the symbolism of Bartholdi’s idol.

The idol on Liberty Island was intended for the centennial of the United States in 1876 but was not ready until ten years later. The big news at the centennial celebration was the death of George Armstrong Custer and members of the Seventh Cavalry at the Battle of the Greasy Grass (Little Bighorn) a few days earlier. The forty shields at the top of the pedestal on which the idol is mounted represent the forty states in existence when the idol was dedicated. The statehood of the final two, North and South Dakota, was made possible because Custer had led the geological expedition which found gold in the Black Hills. The subsequent violations of the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 started the chain of events which led directly to Custer’s death.

I am struck by the similarity between the following three phrases:

  • Liberty Enlightening the World (Bartholdi’s name for the idol),
  • I lift my lamp beside the golden door (final line of Emma Lazarus’s sonnet),
  • Konx Ompax, translated variously as “light in extension”, “light rushing out in one ray”, “light is strength”, or “attainment of the star” (a phrase from the Great Eleusinian Mysteries and the ceremonies of other secret societies).

If the golden door to which Lazarus refers is Rodin’s Gate of Hell, then symbolically the light with which the idol is “enlightening the world” is the burning fires of hell.

America’s first great Crusade in Europe (World War II) began with the successful invasion of North Africa known as “Operation Torch”. Symbolically, that invasion which brought the “torch of liberty” to Africa and Europe began on November 8, 1942 (a date on which the Gate of Hell was open). General Eisenhower’s chief of Staff during the invasion was Walter Bedell Smith. Smith was born on October 5, 1895, another date on which the Gate of Hell was open. He went on to become one of the early directors of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Whose light are we bringing into the world: that of Lucifer or that of Jesus Christ? Turn on your TV, surf through the channels, and the answer to this question should be painfully obvious.

A great man died today, Russell Means. Although he was a citizen of the Republic of Lakota, he knew more about the US Constitution than does our so-called President. Please listen to him at the following link while it's still there:

Mother of Harlots: Part 4

What is a saint? From ASK.com:

A saint is a servant of Christ. They are the standard operating model for human beings. In fact, in the biblical sense of the word, all believers are saints. Sanctity means holiness. All men, women and children, born or unborn, beautiful or ugly, straight or gay, are holy for they bear the image of God.

I would divide humanity into three groups:
  • The number of His (Christ’s) name,
  • The number of his (antichrist’s) name,
  • Everyone else.

I personally strive to serve Christ. I truly want to be counted with the number of His name. Ultimately He will decide whether I am worthy, and I bow to his authority and judgment.

What does the phrase “the blood of the saints” mean in the following Biblical passages?

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. (Rev 17:5-6 KJV)

And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. (Rev 18:24 KJV)

If the idol on Liberty Island is The Mother of Harlots and the world governing system she represents is Babylon The Great, then those being slain in her name are those whom we are slaying. We are the ones who are drunk with her blood lust. And sooner or later that blood lust will turn inward on us, and we will discover that "the blood of the saints" means "the blood of the number of His name".

Look around at what’s happening in America. People are desperate and hungry. Is the government stockpiling food and medicine to help them? No. DHS is buying millions of rounds of ammunition. Who will be the target of all that ammunition? To paraphrase Patrick Henry:

“Has America any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of weapons and ammunition? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other.”

Think about that while the President and his challenger “debate” bullshit issues tonight.

The Mark of the Beast

Have you ever watched the movie Apocalypse Now? One of the movie's memorable scenes is Colonel Kurtz’s monologue. Please read it and/or listen to it via the links provided below:

“I've seen horrors... horrors that you've seen. But you have no right to call me a murderer. You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that... but you have no right to judge me. It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror... Horror has a face... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies! I remember when I was with Special Forces... seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a camp to inoculate some children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out; I didn't know what I wanted to do! And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it... I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought, my God... the genius of that! The genius! The will to do that! Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we, because they could stand that these were not monsters, these were men... trained cadres. These men who fought with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love... but they had the strength... the strength... to do that. If I had ten divisions of those men, our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral... and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling... without passion... without judgment... without judgment! Because it's judgment that defeats us.”

The Book of Revelation describes the mark of the beast in the following terms:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Rev 13:16-17 KJV)

Jesus more than once uttered the following strange phrase (or variation of it):

And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. (Matthew 5:30 KJV)

The vaccinations of which Colonel Kurtz spoke were to the Vietnamese the equivalent of the mark of the beast. If your child was hungry and you could feed him by taking the mark, would you do it or would you let him starve? If your child had the mark on his hand and you could save his soul by cutting it off (literally or figuratively), would you do it or would you let him be damned? What will your family and your neighbors think about your choice, and how will you resist their pressure?

We are a weak people. Although we watch them daily on the Internet, movies, and TV, horror and moral terror are not our friends in the sense meant by Colonel Kurtz; they are our enemies. We don’t have the courage to do what Jesus and Colonel Kurtz described, and when the time comes we WILL NOT be able to do it.

[Thomas Jefferson took an interest in early cowpox and kinepox vaccinations as a preventive measure against smallpox, and he is said to have inoculated several persons himself. In the context of these posts, would that make him the beast and those inoculations the mark of the beast? More on that in a future post.]
Mother of Harlots: Part 3

Here are some more facts about the idol on Liberty Island:

The star-shaped structure on which the idol’s pedestal stands is Fort Wood, named for Colonel Eleazer Derby Wood. COL Wood was a graduate of the US Military Academy who died in battle during the War of 1812. In the Bible, Eleazer was the man who became the second High Priest following the death of his father Aaron.

COL Wood’s father was a soldier who served in the Revolutionary War named Bezaleel Wood. In the Bible, Bezaleel was the architect of the Tabernacle in the Wilderness.

It is truly beyond coincidence that these two names (Eleazer and Bezaleel) would be associated with America’s “altar in the wilderness” on which stands the idol of “freedom” (a.k.a. the Mother of Harlots).

The intellectual creator of the “Statue of Liberty” was the French jurist Édouard René de Laboulaye. He was inspired both by America’s historic roots in freedom, its recent victory (1865) in the Civil War, and possibly by the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. It could be said, therefore, that the idol and its altar on Liberty Island celebrate what is described in the following scripture:

And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. (Rev 13:3 KJV)

The official selection of the site was made by General William Tecumseh Sherman. Oddly enough, although he claimed not to be Catholic, Sherman is buried with his family in a Catholic cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri. When it was suggested that Sherman run for President, he said, “If nominated I will not run, if elected I will not serve.” Could his denials have been because he knew what would happen if America were to elect a Catholic to the Presidency?

Mother of Harlots: Part 2

The following “calendar” gives a framework for the events symbolized in the idol on Liberty Island. I first wrote down this calendar on October 12, 2003, and I believe it to still be valid today.

Saint Howard’s Endtime Calendar

July 4, 1776:  The harlot was born, when she declared independence and rebelled against the crown.

September 17, 1787:  The 616 beast rose up out of the sea, when he signed the US Constitution.

October 28, 1886:  The marriage supper of the 616 beast and the harlot took place (dedication of the “Statue of Liberty”).

October 28, 1936:  Fiftieth wedding anniversary, led by Franklin Roosevelt.

October 28, 1986:  One hundredth wedding anniversary, led by Ronald Reagan.

September 11, 2001:  Apollyon dug the pit at Ground Zero and revealed himself to the world.

September 14-23, 2001:  Apollyon confirmed the covenant and initiated the 616 faithful (the number of his name) into the Eleusinian Mysteries, with the whole world watching.

September 11, 2002:  The false prophet beast rose up out of the earth, as Rome was reborn in the pit at Ground Zero. “W” was anointed as the chosen one.

Some explanations are in order:

The earliest Book of Revelation manuscript yet found has the number of the beast as “616” and not “666”. I use 616 for that reason and two others: (1) On the date that George W. Bush addressed Congress following 9 11, the number of his name (the number of Representatives, Senators, Supreme Court Justices, Governors, and Members of the President’s cabinet) was 616; and (2) Although I am not a believer in gematria, the number of letters in the names of the persons (individuals and states) who signed the original US Constitution is 616.

Are we really following this sequence of end time events? As Jesus said, only the Father knows the day and hour when such events shall occur. When they do occur, the world will know of them. But consider this: Americans no longer are attached to the “real” world. Everything we know comes to us through the Internet, our cell phones, movies, and television. Few people, if any, bother to benchmark what the tube tells them to compare it with reality. Try comparing our fantasy world to the world of the people we are persecuting such as the Iraqis, the Afghanis, or the Palestinians. The difference is as great as night and day.

As the most ignorant and deceived persons on the planet, are we Americans even capable of knowing what is happening to us before is too late?

Mother of Harlots: Part 1

As I stated in my October 1 post, the Book of Revelation in the Bible represents the intersection of Greek mythology and early Christian belief. The idol which represents the Mother of Harlots also embodies the symbols of Greek and Roman mythology and the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.

And as I stated before, there is one place on earth where you can see the beast which rises up out of the sea, the beast which rises up out of the earth, and the four horsemen of the apocalypse represented together symbolically. At that same place, you can also see the Mother of Harlots spoken of in Revelation Chapter 17. That place is New York City. It is the "Rosetta Stone" of Christian prophecy. What follows is what I believe to be the proof of that assertion.

[The pertinent Biblical quotes in italics are followed by a statement as to how they are being fulfilled.]

Revelation Chapter 17 (KJV)

1-2 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

Without question, the nations and inhabitants of the earth are drunk with the wine of America's fornication.

3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

America, in both popular culture and official proclamation, is full of names of blasphemy. The so-called "Statue of Liberty" and its pedestal and underlying fort have the seven heads and ten horns, as demonstrated below. An aerial view of the island reveals mainly two colors, the red of the scarlet beast and the green of the idol and vegetation.

4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

  • The statue is dressed as a patrician woman. As Demeter she is green, but when viewed as the harlot, she is arrayed in purple and scarlet.
  • Her torch is covered with gold.
  • According to the Park Service (NPS), the windows in her diadem represent the precious stones of the earth.
  • Liberty Island was originally called Oyster Island, and excavations have shown that the foundation of the structures stands on a base made of mother of pearl.
  • She holds the torch aloft as if it were a cup. In some portrayals she is shown this way.

5-9 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

There is a sign on Liberty Island, erected by the NPS, which says that the seven rays on the head of the SOL represent the seven continents of the earth. Is there a continent on earth where the "Statue of Liberty" is not venerated? These are the seven mountains upon which the harlot sits. Many Christians believe that the "seven mountains" represent the hills of Rome, but have we not just seen that Rome was reborn in New York City on September 11, 2002?

10-12 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

Around each side of the pedestal of the SOL close to the top are round shields which represent the states in existence when the SOL was dedicated. If you look at the pedestal straight on, you can only see ten of them. These ten states received power (to destroy the earth) only along with the beast (the federal government known as the United States of America). In addition, the pedestal of the statue stands atop Fort Wood, a star-shaped fort with eleven points (ten for the kings and the largest one in the front of the fort for the beast).

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

That's what the US Constitution is all about. The federal government draws its strength from and cannot exist without the support of the states and the rest of us.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

It's just starting, but America is indeed at war with Christianity, and this war seems to be growing in intensity day by day. Our “crusade” in the Middle East is not just attacking radical Islam; it is also destroying mainstream Christianity.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

New York and Ellis Island are the gateway to the United States. We are the nation that professes (falsely, I might add) to embrace all peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. The United Nations is symbolically headquartered in New York for that reason.

16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

This passage suggests the eventual breakup and reformation of the United States at some unspecified time in the future. The Russian academic Igor Panarin has predicted this very event and described its likely outcome.

17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

I think many people can see that America is "on the wrong track" (as in "on the road to Hell"), but the states appear powerless to stop what the federal government is doing. Are we being driven to do things not in our best interest because it is God’s will that we do so?

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

New York, the heart of the world's dollar-based financial empire, does truly reign over the kings of the earth.

In addition, Revelation Chapter 13 speaks of a beast that rises up out of the sea and a beast that rises up out of the earth. New York City was the first capitol of the federal United States of America. As a nation, we were formed by immigrants who arrived by sea. Symbolically and literally, we are a beast that rose up out of the sea. The Shawnee prophet Tenskwatawa, who was the brother of Tecumseh, accurately described us in the following way:

“There are two kinds of white men. There are the Americans, and there are the others. You may give your hand in friendship to the French, or the Spaniards, or the British. But the Americans are not like those. The Americans come from the slime of the sea, with mud and weeds in their claws, and they are a kind of crayfish serpent whose claws grab in our earth and take it from us.”

As I explained in my October 18 post and suggested in several previous posts, we also are the beast who rose up out of the earth in the "pit" at Ground Zero.

Furthermore, what we now call Liberty Island has had (in order) the following functions:

  • quarantine station, representing pestilence (Apollo, first horseman)
  • army fort, representing war (Ares, second horseman)
  • prison with functioning gallows, representing death (Hades, third horseman)
  • altar for the corn goddess, representing famine (Demeter, fourth horseman)

Two beasts, the harlot, and the four horsemen: all can be found in the same location. I suppose it is possible that this happened by coincidence. It's also possible that the founders of America, who knew the Bible well, could have arranged to have all these symbols co-located in New York City. My assessment is that New York was in fact the place in the wilderness to which the angel carried John.

What he actually saw and described in the Book of Revelation was what we now call the "Statue of Liberty".

And it makes sense, too, in the following way: Jesus said He came to fulfill the law, while America says you can do anything you want and live without limits. We're not here to help Jesus save the world; we're here to help Satan seduce it. And we and our children are willing to die for Libertas, a.k.a. Demeter, a.k.a. the Mother of Harlots.

Does that not make us “the number of his (antichrist’s) name”?
The Passion of George the Third: Conclusion

Before you dismiss the mythological and religious implications of the actions of George W. Bush as mere poppycock, please be aware there are other signs of the Eleusinian Mysteries in the American civil religion. Two of the best-known are the following:

(1) Nathan Hale's spy mission to New York, which ended in his death by hanging on September 22, 1776, occurred during the period when the mysteries are celebrated. His famous last words, "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country", is both a patriotic statement and a wistful appeal for immortality reminiscent of the mysteries. He is commemorated by a statue at CIA Headquarters.

(2) Our national anthem was written by Francis Scott Key following the bombardment of Fort McHenry on the night of September 13-14, 1814. When our flag was still standing on the morning of September 14, Key was inspired to write the words which were first published on September 20. He is commemorated on the grounds of the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine by a statue in the form of the poet/musician Orpheus. Orpheus was chosen because it is said that his music could charm all living things and even deflect arrows (despite heavy bombardment by the British, Fort McHenry suffered little damage and minimal casualties). Interestingly, Orpheus also is said to have descended in the underworld to plead for the return of his dead wife Eurydice. He was allowed to return to the realm of the living, but because of his lack of trust (like Lot's wife, he looked back) Eurydice was not.

While some of these events may indeed have been coincidences, I suggest that the ones we choose to remember and even venerate are those that embody our core values. Among these are events suggestive of the Great Eleusinian Mysteries.

Some things in our civil religion, however, are so striking that I am compelled to believe that they must be the fulfillment of prophecy. Among these is the Mother of Harlots, the subject of my next post.
The following was written by Arthur Silber four years ago. To a certain extent, it is still valid today:

Because all three of these politicians [Obama, McCain and Clinton] have chosen to engage in national politics at the highest level, they have no choice about enthusiastically adopting all the indicia of the ruling class, for indeed they are the ruling class. That is, they have no choice if they want to win. And all three of them assuredly want to win (even if one of them seems to be out of the running for the moment, but much can happen between now and November, and even between now and August).

Reflect for just a moment about what it is they want to win so desperately. Each of these three persons wants to be the most powerful ruler in the world. Given the nature of the weapons that will be at their disposal, they want to be the most powerful ruler in all of history, with the power to fundamentally transform human history and perhaps even to end it in significant part. Even if you believed that you acted righteously, with justice and truth on your side (let us set aside for the moment how one can believe that the power to murder millions of innocent people can ever be thought to be right or just, although I do not believe such considerations should ever be set aside), would you want power of that kind? If you would, I hope never to meet you. For any person who actively seeks the power of life and death over just one other human being, let alone millions of people, is deeply, irrevocably damaged in psychological terms. If we use the term "normal" to designate those goals and motives that can generally be described as supportive of individual life and happiness, no one who wants to be president of the United States is remotely close to normal. When you consider the years of relentless, soul-destroying ambition that are required to approach the office of president, together with the indefensible compromises, the endless lies, and the constant exercise of power over others in less extreme forms, anyone who deeply desires to be president verges on a constant state of insanity.

Arthur writes the blog "Once upon a time..." @ http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/ Many people upon reading Arthur's work may get the impression that he hates America. My impression is that he loves America but hates lies and the lying liars who tell them.
