Is Kevin Rudd a GORMOGON?

The Gormogons

The Antient Noble Order of the Gormogons was a short-lived eighteenth century society; leaving no records or accomplishments to indicate its true goal and purpose. From the few published advertisements and notices, it would appear that its sole objective was to hold up Freemasonry to ridicule.

The Gormogons are first heard of in a notice published in the London Daily Post for September 3, 1724:

" Whereas the truly ANTIENT NOBLE ORDER of the Gormogons, instituted by Chin-Qua Ky-Po, the first Emperor of China (according to their account), many thousand years before Adam, and of which the great philosopher Confucious was Oecumenicae Volgee, has lately been brought into England by a Mandarin, and he having admitted several Gentlemen of Honour into the mystery of that most illustrious order, they have determined to hold a Chapter at the Castle Tavern in Fleet Street, at the particular request of several persons of quality. This is to inform the public, that there will be no drawn sword at the Door, nor Ladder in a dark Room, nor will any Mason be reciev'd as a member till he has renounced his Novel Order and been properly degraded. N.B. — The Grand Mogul, the Czar of Muscovy, and Prince Tochmas are entr'd into this Hon. Society ; but it has been refused to the Rebel Meriweys, to his great Mortification. The Mandarin will shortly set out for Rome, having a particular Commission to make a Present of the Antient Order to his Holiness, and it is believ'd the whole Sacred College of Cardinals will commence Gormogons. Notice will be given in the Gazette the Day the Chapter will be held.2
Letters appeared in the Plain Dealer for Monday, September 14, 1724 (No. 51) attacking Freemasonry and referring to the Gormogons; and then in the British Journal for December 12, 1724: "We hear that a Peer of the first Rank, a noted Member of the Society of Free-Masons, hath suffered himself to be degraded as a member of that Society, and his Leather Apron and Gloves to be burnt, and thereupon enter'd himself as a Member of the Society of Gormogons, at the Castle-Tavern in Fleet Street." This is presumed to be a reference to Philip, Duke of Wharton.

Little is heard again of the Gormogons until the editions of the Daily Journal for October 26 and 28, 1728: "By command of the Vol-Gi. A General Chapter of the Most August and Ancient Order, GOR-MO-GON, will be held at the Castle Tavern in Fleet Street, on Saturday, the 31st Inst., to commence at 12 o'clock ; of which the several Graduates and Licentiates are to take Notice, and give their Attendance." The same year a letter by Wharton appeared in Mr. Mist’s Journal lampooning the British royal court in a similar Persian style as the Gormogon literature of 1724.

Nichols and Stevens, editors of Hogarth’s Works(1810) claim that the order was frequently advertised between October 1728 and 1730 but no records remain extant. The Weekly Journal or British Gazetteer for April 18, 1730 stated that John Dennis, poet, political writer and critic, had renounced the Gormogons and joined the Freemasons.

Wharton died on May 31, 1731, and the Gormogons were not heard from again. There is no evidence of any other members other than Wharton and Dennis. Dennis was a Whig so his alleged membership was probably a hoax. Unlike the Scald- Miserables4 , and contrary to Hogarth’s print, the Gorgomons never actually held public processions. The fullest account of the Gormogons is given in the letters of Verus Commodus, published in an appendix to the second edition of The Grand Mystery of the Freemasons Discover'd, (28 October, 1724).

There is some evidence that the Gormogons, in some fashion, lingered on:
When exactly the Gormogons died out is not known, but two considerations seem to render untenable Gould's theory that "the Order is said to have become extinct in 1738." In the first place the existence of a Lancashire Gormogon in the person of John Collier, better known as Tim Bobbin (1708-86) was revealed by the chance stumbling upon a poem of his, The Goose, by one of the present authors. The first appearance of the poem known to the authors is in Tim Bobbin's Collected Poems of 1757 and in any case very little of his verse is ascribed to a period before the last forty years of his life. The Goose has a dedication :-
" As I have the honor to be a member of the ancient and venerable order of the Gormogons, I am obliged by the laws of the great Chin-Quaiw-Ki-Po, emperor of China, to read, yearly, some part of the ancient records of that country.
The poem describes, in part, the spinning of a coin to settle a dispute about the payment for a goose :
" No sooner said than done-both parties willing
The Justice twirls aloft a splendid shilling ;
" While she, (ah nature, nature,) calls for tail,
And pity 'tis, poor soul, that she should fail
But chance decrees-up turns great Chin-Quaw-Ki-Po,
Whose very name my belly sore doth gripe-oh ! "
Secondly, Gould's theory is further stultified by the existence of some very rare but undoubtedly Gormogon medals which bear every evidence of having been minted as late as 1799.11 .
There exists in the British Museum what may well be the only surviving specimen of a Gormogon medal which is exceedingly closely related to the very beautiful one of which a number of examples are known, and which has often been reproduced.5 .

Philip, Duke of Wharton

Although various theories have been offered as to who the Gormogons were: that the Oecumenicae Volgi was the Chevalier Ramsey, then at Rome in attendance upon the Young Pretender; that the movement was an undefined Jesuit scheme; or that the Gormogons were the precursors of the Ancient Grand Lodge of England
6 . — nothing is known for fact, but all evidence suggests an attempt by Philip, Duke of Wharton, to establish a Jacobite or Catholic Club.

Philip, Duke of Wharton (b. December, 1698) 7 . a Jacobite sympathizer zealous for the Hanover Settlement and one-time president of one of the three Hell-Fire Clubs in London, was a colourful figure of the period. 8 . As publisher of True Briton from June 3, 1723 until February 17, 1724, his writings resulted in his printer, Samuel Richardson, being tried for libel and his own self-exile to the Continent where his service for the King of Spain in the siege of Gibralter lead to a charge of High Treason. With his estates frozen, he was living in Rouen when he was outlawed on April 3, 1729 for not appearing on the charge of High Treason. He died in indigence at a Bernadine convent in Catalonia, May 31, 1731.9 .

His masonic history is equally colourful. While there is some question if he ever served as Master of his lodge — the Lodge at the King’s Arms, near St. Paul’s — he arranged to be elected the sixth Grand Master on June 24, 1722, when he also appointed
Dr. Desaguliers his Deputy Grand Master and James Anderson a Grand Warden. The following year, at the Grand Festival of June 24, 1723, he attempted, unsuccessfully, to deprive the Grand Master of the privilege of appointing his Deputy by making the office subject to election in Grand Lodge. Unsuccessful in his attempt, the minutes of Grand Lodge record that "The late Grand Master went away from the Hall without Ceremony."

From that date he had nothing further to do with Grand Lodge, although he did constitute the first lodge in foreign parts on the rolls of the Grand Lodge of England, the Madrid Lodge, Madrid, Spain on February 15, 1728.

AFP on protecting Tony Abbott from a race riot in Canberra in 2012 – MIA (the PM had to tell the AFP to protect him)
…and I could go on. The AFP is thoroughly in the pocket of the ALP so don’t expect them to anything about honestly investigating the role of the PM and her office in inciting last week’s race riot:
Manager of opposition business Christopher Pyne today repeated calls for a full Australian Federal Police investigation into Thursday’s events.
“We are a long way from satisfying the Australian people about what the truth is about this matter,” Mr Pyne told Sky News’s Australian Agenda program.
“This is the most serious security scare an Australian prime minister has faced since the Fraser government. The Prime Minister should want to get to the bottom of what happened.”
Well given that the PM’s own advisor has resigned about the issue – having given false information to the tent embassy’s go between to stoke anger against Abbott – the PM is unlikely to do anything to encourage the truth to come out.
As Ms Gillard insisted former media adviser Tony Hodges acted alone in revealing to union leader Kim Sattler the Opposition Leader’s whereabouts on Australia Day, Mr Abbott said it was imperative an Australian Federal Police investigation take place.
“The only way to get to the bottom of this is to have a full investigation,” Mr Abbott said in Sydney.
“Both Kim Sattler and the Prime Minister’s former staffer should give sworn statements and in the meantime the Prime Minister needs to tell us what she was told verbatim by her office and by her former staffer.”
Mr Abbott said it wasn’t up to him to personally refer the matter to the AFP.
“I want to give (Ms Gillard) a chance to do the right thing and refer this for full investigation to the Australian Federal Police,” he said.
The AFP do not need a referral. They can investigate at any point.
The Opposition Leader said today that without a full AFP probe, the events and the involvement of the Prime Minister’s staffer would ultimately reflect badly on the Gillard government.
“We really need to get to bottom of this,” Mr Abbott said.
“Unless we do the conclusion the Australian people will inevitably draw is that there is a very grubby political culture in this government which goes right to the heart of the Prime Minister’s office.”
He said the events were “the most serious protest, the most serious security breach involving our nation’s top leaders in 30 years”.
I would not be in the least bit surprised if Gillard orchestrated the whole thing. A this stage there is no evidence that she did, but she did volunteer information about Tony Hodges’ role in the race riot, along with her other mate Kim Sattler who passed on the message to the rioters. The circle is closing in.
Even Chris Uhlmann thinks a criminal offense has been committed:
CHRIS UHLMANN: And all the things I’ve just described are the basis for criminal offences: incitement to riot or affray, causing public alarm and making false statements with the intent to cause public alarm, so why isn’t that worthy of a police investigation?
Not the AFP though. No charges against anyone, including the guy with a spear that tried to stab Abbott. The AFP are hiding behind the idea that they need a referral, which is false. If they suspect a criminal offence has been committed they need to put aside their ALP sympathies and act.

Was the ABC journalist primed to ask the question? Who knows? If there is an enquiry of some sort, and I think at least a senate enquiry will get up, then maybe look at it then. But I doubt you will get the journalist to admit it. And the people at the tent embassy marched in Canberra on Australia day and the Coalition has talked about a referendum at the next election to change the Constitution to recognise indigenous Australians, so the journalist would use that as the reasons.
I think focusing on the question and answer by the journalist and Abbott is wrong because it does two things (1) that is not where the damage was done. It was Sattler and Hodges lying about what he said and then inflaming the issues by telling the lies to the people at the tent embassy.
(2) It takes the focus away from the more blatant lies and deception before and after the fact by the players involved which includes quite a few in the Prime Minister’s office.
For example you wrote in a previous comment that “Sattler was very obvious among the crowd at the window, taking photos/videos and grinning like a mullet.” Which is true, she was at the function and a good point to raise as it made me think, then why did Hodges say that he phoned Sattler. More likely he went up to her at the Lobby restaurant and asked her to go the 200 meters to the tent embassy and stir up the trouble.
Sattler said she was already at the embassy when she got the call from Hodges. But why would she be there if she was invited to the function at the Lobby restaurant. Seems to me there are more lies that Sattler and Hodges are telling and that the Prime Minister’s office have plenty of more questions they need to answer.
The jounalist issue has been raised and is worth looking at but near impossible to prove unless someone rolls over, but lets move on now and start crunching the evidence and try and work out what other lies have been told. StumbleUpon

Telstra warns price for using NBN may blow out

TELSTRA has undermined central pillars of Labor's promises on the benefits of the National Broadband Network by warning that prices for superfast internet could be unnecessarily high under the NBN Co pricing strategy.

The nation's biggest telecommunications provider is urging the competition watchdog to consider whether NBN Co should adopt an alternative pricing model to its controversial two-tariff pricing plan, under which internet service providers are charged a baseline connection fee and usage-based fees for the amount of data carried through the network. Telstra says a different model could be better for consumers.

Labor's Dirty Tricks - Gillard must reveal the truth

At a time when Australians are concerned about cost of living pressures on their daily lives the Gillard Government has again demonstrated that it is not only incompetent and untrustworthy, but directionless and divided. Without a clear plan and direction for Australia, Labor has instead reverted to a grubby dirty tricks campaign against Tony Abbott.

The past week saw:

  • Julia Gillard shred her written agreement with Andrew Wilkie
  • Anthony Albanese become an international joke by plagiarising a US romantic drama to attack Tony Abbott
  • Julia Gillard again promote her support for disgraced MP Craig Thomson
  • One of Julia Gillard’s trusted media advisers resign in disgrace for his role in the dirty tricks campaign against Tony Abbott that sparked the Australia Day riot

The inconsistencies coming from Labor on the Australia Day riot grow daily. Julia Gillard and the key players in this Labor-made fiasco are unable to clearly state what happened.

Australians deserve to know the facts behind how a grubby attack on Tony Abbott emanating from the Prime Minister’s office, and based on entirely false information, turned into the Australia Day riot.

Only a full investigation by the Federal Police will reveal the truth of the exact role the Prime Minister’s office played in the Australia Day riot.

Julia Gillard must now do the honourable thing and call in the Federal Police.

The Gillard Government is obsessed with destroying Tony Abbott with smears and dirty tricks.

Only the Coalition will provide Australia with a government that can concentrate on the concerns that ordinary Australians have with rising cost of living pressures, job security and border security.

Happy Australia Day

Such are the shepherds of the people: and now how fares it with the flock? With the flock, as is inevitable, it fares ill, and ever worse. They are not tended, they are only regularly shorn. They are sent for, to do statute-labour, to pay statute-taxes; to fatten battle-fields (named 'Bed of honour') with their bodies, in quarrels which are not theirs; their hand and toil is in every possession of man; but for themselves they have little or no possession. Untaught, uncomforted, unfed; to pine dully in thick obscuration, in squalid destitution and obstruction: this is the lot of the millions; peuple taillable et corveable a merci et misericorde.

Comte de St. Germain by Reginald Merton

Many average, reasonable men can conceive wisdom only under the boring form of a sermon and think of the sage only in the semblance of a clergyman. For such men prudery, hypocrisy, and the most abject enslavement to ritual habit and prejudice must be the everyday virtues. When therefore it happens that a genuine sage, by way of amusing himself, mystifies his contemporaries, follows a woman, or lightheartedly raises his glass, he is condemned eternally by the army of short-sighted people whose judgment forms posterity.

That is what happened in the case of the Comte de Saint-Germain. He had a love of jewels in an extreme form, and he ostentatiously showed off those he possessed. He kept a great quantity of them in a casket, which he carried about everywhere with him. The importance he attached to jewels was so great that in the pictures painted by him, which were in themselves remarkable, the figures were covered with jewels; and his colors were so vivid and strange that faces looked pale and insignificant by contrast. Jewels cast their reflection on him and threw a distorting light on the whole of his life.

His contemporaries did not forgive him this weakness. Nor did they forgive him for keeping for an entire century the physical appearance of a man of between forty and fifty years old. Apparently a man cannot be taken seriously if he does not conform strictly to the laws of nature, and he was called a charlatan because he possessed a secret which allowed him to prolong his life beyond known human limits.

Saint-Germain seems also to have been free personally from the solemnity in which men of religion and philosophers wrap themselves. He enjoyed and sought the company of the pretty women of his day. Though he never ate any food in public, he liked dining out because of the people he met and the conversation he heard. He was an aristocrat who lived with princes and even with kings almost on a footing of an equal. He gave recipes for removing wrinkles and dyeing hair. He had an immense stock of amusing stories with which he regaled society. It appears from the memoirs of Baron von Gleichen that when Saint-Germain was in Paris he became the lover of Mademoiselle Lambert, daughter of the Chevalier Lambert, who lived in the house in which he lodged. And it appears from Grosley's memoirs that in Holland he became the lover of a woman as rich and mysterious as himself.

At first sight all this is incompatible with the high mission with which he was invested, with the part he played in the Hermetic societies of Germany and France. But the contradiction is perhaps only apparent. His outward appearance of a man of the world was necessary in the first place for the purposes of the secret diplomacy in which Louis XV often employed him. Moreover, we often have an erroneous conception of the activities of a master. The possession of an "opal of monstrous size, of a white sapphire as big as an egg, of the treasures of Aladdin's lamp," is a harmless pleasure if these treasures have been inherited or have been made through the help of miraculous knowledge. It is no great eccentricity in a man to pull down his cuffs in order to show the sparkle of the rubies in his links. And if Mademoiselle Lambert had the ideas of her time on the subject of gallantry, the Comte de Saint-Germain can hardly be reproached for lingering one night in her room in order to open in her presence the mysterious jewelcasket and invite her to choose one of those diamonds that were the admiration of Madam de Pompadour.

For pleasure in life drags a man down only when it is carried to excess. It may be that there exists a way by which a man may attain the highest spirituality and yet keep this pleasure. Moreover, on a certain plane, the chain of the senses no longer exists and kisses cease to burn; a man can no longer harm either himself or others by virtue of the power that the transformation has wrought in him.

"A man who knows everything and who never dies," said Voltaire of the Comte de Saint-Germain. He might have added that he was a man whose origin was unknown and who disappeared without leaving a trace. In vain his contemporaries tried to penetrate the mystery, and in vain the chiefs of police and the ministers of the various countries whose inhabitants he puzzled, flattered themselves that they had solved the riddle of his birth.
Louis XV must have known who he was, for he extended to him a friendship that aroused the jealousy of his court. He allotted him rooms in the Chateau of Chambord. He shut himself up with Saint-Germain and Madam de Pompadour for whole evenings; and the pleasure he derived from his conversation and the admiration he no doubt felt for the range of his knowledge cannot explain the consideration, almost the deference, he had for him. Madam du Housset says in her memoirs that the king spoke of Saint-Germain as a personage of illustrious birth. Count Charles of Hesse Cassel, with whom he lived during the last years in which history is able to follow his career, must also have possessed the secret of his birth. He worked at alchemy with him, and Saint-Germain treated him as an equal. It was to him that Saint-Germain entrusted his papers just before his supposed death in 1784. However, neither Louis XV nor the Count of Hesse Cassel ever revealed anything about the birth of Saint-Germain. The count even went so far as invariably to withhold the smallest detail bearing on the life of his mysterious friend. This is a very remarkable fact, since Saint-Germain was an extremely well known figure. 

In those days, when the aristocracy immersed itself in the occult sciences, secret societies and magic, this man, who was said to possess the elixir of life and to be able to make gold at will, was the subject of interminable talk. An inner force that is irresistibly strong compels men to talk. It makes no difference whether a man is a king or a count; all alike are subject to this force, and increasingly subject to it in proportion as they spend their time with women. For Louis XV and the count to have held out against the curiosity of beloved mistresses we must presume in them either a strength of mind that they certainly did not possess or else some imperious motive which we cannot determine.

The commonest hypothesis about his birth is that Saint-Germain was the natural son of the widow of Charles II of Spain and a certain Comte (Count) Adanero, whom she knew at Bayonne. This Spanish queen was Marie de Neubourg, whom Victor Hugo took as the heroine of his Ruy Blas. Those who disliked Saint-Germain said that he was the son of a Portuguese Jew named Aymar, while those who hated him said, in the effort to add to his discredit, that he was the son of an Alsatian Jew named Wolff. Fairly recently a new genealogy of Saint-Germain has been put forward, which seems the most probable of all. It is the work of the theosophists and Annie Besant, who has frequently made the statement that the Comte de Saint-Germain was one of the sons of Francis Racoczi II, Prince of Transylvania. The children of Francis Racoczi were brought up by the Emperor of Austria, but one of them was withdrawn from his guardianship. The story was put about that he was dead, but actually he was given into the charge of the last descendant of the Medici family, who brought him up in Italy. He took the name of Saint-Germain from the little town of San Germano, where he had spent some years during his childhood and where his father had estates. This would give an air of probability to the memories of southern lands and sunny palaces which Saint-Germain liked to call up as the setting of his childhood. And it would help to account for the consideration that Louis XV showed him. The impenetrable silence kept by him and by those to whom he entrusted his secret would in this event be due to fear of the Emperor of Austria and possible vengeance on his part. The belief that Saint-Germain and the descendant of the Racoczis are one and the same is firmly held by many people, who regard him as a genuine adept and even think he may still be living.
The Comte de Saint-Germain was a man "of middle height, strongly built, and dressed with superb simplicity." He spoke with an entire lack of ceremony to the most highly placed personages and was fully conscious of his superiority. Said Gleichen of the first time he met Saint-Germain: "He threw down his hat and sword, sat down in an armchair near the fire and interrupted the conversation by saying to the man who was speaking: 'You do not know what you are saying! I am the only person who is competent to speak on this subject, and I have exhausted it. It was the same with music, which I gave up when I found I had no more to learn.'"

Indeed, many people who heard him play the violin said of him that he equaled or even surpassed the greatest virtuosos of the period, and he seems to have justified his remark that he had reached the extreme limit possible in the art of music.
Saint-Germain was also an accomplished artist. One day he took Gleichen to his house and said to him: " I am pleased with you, and you have earned my showing you a few paintings of mine." "And he very effectively kept his word," said Gleichen, "for the paintings he showed me all bore a stamp of singularity or perfection which made them more interesting than many works of art of the highest order."

However, he seems not to have excelled as a poet. There survive of his an indifferent sonnet and a letter addressed to Marie Antoinette (quoted by the Comtesse d'Adhemar) that contains predictions in doggerel verse. At the request of Madam de Pompadour he also wrote a rather poor outline of a comedy.

By far the greatest obvious talents of the Comte de Saint-Germain were connected with his knowledge of alchemy. Yet if Saint-Germain he knew how to make gold, he was wise enough to say nothing about it. Nothing but the possession of this secret could perhaps account for the enormous wealth at his command, though he was not known to have money on deposit at any banker's. What he does seem to have admitted, at least ambiguously, is that he could make a big diamond out of several small stones. The diamonds that he wore in his shoes and garters were believed to be worth more than 200,000 francs. He asserted also that he could increase the size of pearls at will, and some of the pearls in his possession certainly were of astonishing size.

If all that he said on this subject was mere bragging, it was expensive, for he supported it by magnificent gifts. Madam du Hausset tells us that one day when he was showing the queen some jewels in her presence, she commented on the beauty of a cross of white and green stones. Saint-Germain nonchalantly made her a present of it. Madam du Hausset refused, but the queen, thinking the stones were false, signed to her that she might accept. Madam du Hausset subsequently had the stones valued, and they turned out to be genuine and extremely valuable.

But the feature in Saint-Germain's personage that is hardest to believe is his astounding longevity. The musician Rameau and Madam de Gergy (with the latter of whom, according to the memoirs of Casanova, he was still dining about 1775) both assert that they met him at Venice in 1710, under the name of the Marquis de Montferrat. Both of them agree that he then had the appearance of a man of between forty and fifty years old. If their recollection is accurate this evidence destroys the hypotheses according to which Saint-Germain was the son of Marie de Neubourg or the son of Francis Racoczi II, for if he had been, he would not have been more than about twenty in 1710. Later, Madam de Gergy told Madam de Pompadour that she had received from Saint-Germain at Venice an elixir that enabled her to preserve, for a long time and without the smallest change, the appearance of a woman of twenty-five. A gift as precious as this could not be forgotten! It is also true, however, that Saint-Germain, when questioned by Madam de Pompadour on the subject of his meeting with Madam de Gergy fifty years earlier and of the marvelous elixir he was supposed to have given to her, replied with a smile: "It is not impossible; but I confess it is likely that this lady, for whom I have the greatest respect, is talking nonsense.

We can compare with this the offer he made to Mademoiselle de Genlis when she was a child: "When you are seventeen or eighteen will you be happy to remain at that age, at least for a great many years?' She answered that she should indeed be charmed. "Very well," he said very gravely; "I promise you that you shall." And he at once spoke of something else.
The period of his great celebrity in Paris extended from 1750 to 1760. Everyone agreed then that, in appearance, he was a man of between forty and fifty. He disappeared for fifteen years, and when the Comtesse d'Adhemar saw him again in 1775, she declared that she found him younger than ever. And when she saw him again twelve years later he still looked the same. While he deliberately allowed his hearers to believe that his life had lasted inconceivably long, he never actually said so. He proceeded by veiled allusions. 

"He diluted the strength of the marvelous in his stories," said his friend Gleichen, "according to the receptivity of his hearer. When he was telling a fool some event of the time of Charles V, he informed him quite crudely that he had been present. But when he spoke to somebody less credulous, he contented himself with describing the smallest circumstances, the faces and gestures of the speakers, the room and the part of it they were in, with such vivacity and in such detail that his hearers received the impression that he had actually been present at the scene. 'These fools of Parisians,' he said to me one day, 'believe that I am five hundred years old. I confirm them in this idea because I see that it gives them much pleasure -- not that I am not infinitely older than I appear.'"

Tradition has related that he said he had known Jesus and been present at the Council of Nicea. But he did not go so far as this in his contempt for the men with whom he associated and in his derision of their credulity. This tradition originates from the fact that Lord Gower, who was a practical joker, gave imitations at his house of well-known men of his time. When he came to Saint-Germain, he imitated his manner and voice in an imaginary conversation that Saint-Germain was supposed to have had with the founder of Christianity, of whom Lord Gower made him say: "He was the best man imaginable, but romantic and thoughtless."

About 1760, an English newspaper, the London Mercury, quite seriously published the following story: "The Comte de Saint-Germain presented a lady of his acquaintance, who was concerned at growing old, with a vial of his famous elixir of long life. The lady put the vial into a drawer. One of her servants, a middle-aged woman, thought the vial contained a harmless purge and drank the contents. When the lady summoned her servant next day, there appeared before her a young girl, almost a child. It was the effect of the elixir. A few drops more and I have no doubt the servant would have answered her mistress with infantile screams!"

"Has anyone ever seen me eat or drink?" said Saint-Germain, as he was passing through Vienna, to a Herr Graeffer who offered him some Tokay. Everyone who knew him agreed in saying that though he liked sitting down to table with a numerous company, he never touched the dishes. He was fond of offering his intimate friends the recipe of a purge made of senna pods. His principal food, which he prepared himself, was a mixture of oatmeal.
But is it really so surprising that the authors of memoirs depict Saint-Germain as retaining the same physical appearance during a whole century? Human life may have a duration infinitely longer than that ordinarily attributed to it. It is the activity of our nerves, the flame of our desire, the acid of our fears, which daily consume our organism. He who succeeds in raising himself above his emotions, in suppressing in himself anger and the fear of illness, is capable of overcoming the attrition of the years and attaining an age at least double that at which men now die of old age. If the face of a man who is not tormented by his emotions should retain its youth, it would be no miracle. Not long ago a London medical periodical reported the case of a woman who at seventy-four had preserved " the features and expression of a girl of twenty, without a wrinkle or a white hair. She had become insane as the result of an unhappy love affair, and her insanity consisted in the perpetual reliving of her last separation from her lover." From her conviction that she was young she had remained young. It may be that a subjective conception of time, and the suppression of impatience and expectation, enable a highly developed man to reduce to a minimum the normal wear and tear of the body. The Comte de Saint-Germain asserted also that he had the capacity of stopping the mechanism of the human clock during sleep. He thus almost entirely stopped the physical wastage that proceeds, without our knowing it, from breathing and the beating of the heart.

Saint-Germain's activity and the diversity of his occupations were very great. He was interested in the preparation of dyes and even started a factory in Germany for the manufacture of felt hats. But his principal role was that of a secret agent in international politics in the service of France. He became Louis XV's confidential and intimate counselor and was entrusted by him with various secret missions. This drew on him the enmity of many important men, including, notably, that of the Duke de Choiseul, the minister for foreign affairs. It was this enmity which compelled him to leave hurriedly for England in order to escape imprisonment in the Bastille. 

Louis XV did not agree with his minister's policy with regard to Austria and tried to negotiate peace behind his back by using Holland as an intermediary. Saint-Germain was sent to The Hague to negotiate there with Prince Louis of Brunswick. Monsieur d'Affry, the French minister in Holland, was informed of this step, and complained bitterly to his minister for foreign affairs that France was carrying on negotiations that did not pass through his hands. The Duke de Choiseul seized his opportunity. He sent d'Affry orders demanding the extradition of Saint-Germain and have him arrested by the Dutch Government and sent to Paris. This decision was communicated to the king in the presence of his ministers in council, and Louis, not daring to admit his participation in the affair, blamed it all on his emissary. But Saint-Germain received warning just before his arrest. He had time to escape and take ship for England. The adventurer Casanova gives us some details of this escape; he happened to be in a hotel near that in which Saint-Germain was staying, and found himself mixed up in a complicated story of jewels, swindlers, duped fathers and girls madly in love with him -- a story, in fact, that was typical of the ordinary course of Saint-Germain's life.

According to Horace Walpole's letters, Saint-Germain had been arrested in London some years previously on account of his mysterious life. He had been set free because there was nothing against him. Walpole, a true Englishman, came to the conclusion that "he was not a gentleman" because he used to say with a laugh that he was taken for a spy. He was not arrested a second time in England. Not long after this, he was found in Russia, where he was to play an important but hidden part in the revolution of 1762. Count Alexis Orloff met him some years later in Italy and said of him: "Here is a man who played an important part in our revolution." Alexis' brother, Gregory Orloff, handed over to Saint-Germain of his own free will 20,000 sequins, an uncommon action, seeing that Saint-Germain had not rendered him any particular service. At that time he wore the uniform of a Russian general and called himself Soltikov.

It was about this period, the beginning of the reign of Louis XVI, that Saint-Germain returned to France and saw Marie Antoinette. The Comtesse d'Adhemar has left a detailed account of the interview. It was to her that he turned to obtain access to the queen. Since his flight to England, he had not reappeared in France, but the memory of him had become a legend, and Louis XV's friendship for him was well known. It was easy, therefore, for the Comtesse d'Adhemar to arrange a meeting with Marie Antoinette, who immediately asked Saint-Germain if he was going to settle in Paris again. "A century will pass," was his reply, "before I come here again."

In the presence of the queen he spoke in a grave voice and foretold events that would take place fifteen years later. "The queen in her wisdom will weigh that which I am about to tell her in confidence. The Encyclopedist party desires power, which it will obtain only by the complete fall of the clergy. In order to bring about this result, it will upset the monarchy. The Encyclopedists, who are seeking a chief among the members of the royal family, have cast their eyes on the Duke de Chartres. The duke will become the instrument of men who will sacrifice him when he has ceased to be useful to them. He will come to the scaffold instead of to the throne. Not for long will the laws remain the protection of the good and the terror of the wicked. The wicked will seize power with bloodstained hands. They will do away with the Catholic religion, the nobility, and the magistracy."

"So that only royalty will be left," the queen interrupted impatiently.

"Not even royalty. There will be a bloodthirsty republic, whose scepter will be the executioner's knife."

It is quite plain from these words that Saint-Germain's ideas were entirely different from those ascribed to him by the majority of historical authors of this period, nearly all of whom see in him an active instrument of the revolutionary movement. His terrible and amazing predictions filled Marie Antoinette with foreboding and agitation. Saint-Germain asked to see the King, in order to make even more serious revelations, but he asked to see him without his minister, Maurepas, being told of it. 

"He is my enemy," he said, "and I count him among those who will contribute to the ruin of the kingdom, not from malice but from incapacity."

The king did not possess sufficient authority to have an interview with anybody without the presence of his minister. He informed Maurepas of the interview that Saint-Germain had had with the queen, and Maurepas thought it would be wisest to imprison in the Bastille a man who had so gloomy a vision of the future.

Out of courtesy to the Comtesse d'Adhemar, Maurepas visited her in order to acquaint her with this decision. She received him in her room.

"I know the scoundrel better than you do," he said. "He will be exposed. Our police officials have a very keen scent. Only one thing surprises me. The years have not spared me, whereas the queen declares that the Comte de Saint-Germain looks like a man of forty."
At this moment the attention of both of them was distracted by the sound of a door being shut. The comtesse uttered a cry. The expression on Maurepas' face changed. Saint-Germain stood before them.

"The king has called on you to give him good counsel," he said; "and in refusing to allow me to see him you think only of maintaining your authority. You are destroying the monarchy, for I have only a limited time to give to France, and when that time has passed I shall be seen again only after three generations. I shall not be to blame when anarchy with all its horrors devastates France. You will not see these calamities, but the fact that you paved the way for them will be enough to blacken your memory."

Having uttered this in one breath, he walked to the door, shut it behind him and disappeared. All efforts to find him proved useless. The keen scent of Maurepas' police officials was not keen enough, either during the days immediately following or later. They never discovered what had happened to the Comte de Saint-Germain.
As had been foretold to him, Maurepas did not see the calamities for which he had helped to pave the way. He died in 1781. In 1784 a rumor was current in Paris that the Comte de Saint-Germain had just died in the Duchy of Schleswig, at the castle of the Count Charles of Hesse Cassel. For biographers and historians this date seems likely to remain the official date of his death. From that day forward, the mystery in which the Comte de Saint-Germain was shrouded grew deeper than ever.

Secluded at Eckenforn in the count's castle, Saint-Germain announced that he was tired of fife. He seemed careworn and melancholy. He said he felt feeble, but he refused to see a doctor and was tended only by women. No details exist of his death, or rather of his supposed death. No tombstone at Eckenforn bore his name. It was known that he had left all his papers and certain documents relating to Freemasonry to the Count of Hesse Cassel. The count for his part asserted that he had lost a very dear friend. But his attitude was highly equivocal. He refused to give any information about his friend or his last moments, and turned the conversation if anyone spoke of him. His whole behavior gives color to the supposition that he was the accomplice of a pretended death.

Although, on the evidence of reliable witnesses, he must have been at least a hundred years old in 1784, his death in that year cannot have been genuine. The official documents of Freemasonry say that in 1785 the French masons chose him as their representative at the great convention that took place in that year, with Mesmer, Saint-Martin, and Cagliostro present. In the following year Saint-Germain was received by the Empress of Russia. Finally, the Comtesse d'Adhemar reports at great length a conversation she had with him in 1789 in the Church of the Recollets, after the taking of the Bastille.
His face looked no older than it had looked thirty years earlier. He said he had come from China and Japan. "There is nothing so strange out there," he said, "as that which is happening here. But I can do nothing. My hands are tied by someone who is stronger than I. There are times when it is possible to draw back; others at which the decree must be carried out as soon as he has pronounced it."

And he told her in broad outlines all the events, not excepting the death of the queen, that were to take place in the years that followed. "The French will play with titles and honors and ribbons like children. They will regard everything as a plaything, even the equipment of the Garde Nationale. There is today a deficit of some forty millions, which is the nominal cause of the Revolution. Well, under the dictatorship of philanthropists and orators the national debt will reach thousands of millions."

"I have seen Saint-Germain again," wrote Comtesse d'Adhemar in 1821, "each time to my amazement. I saw him when the queen was murdered, on the 18th of Brumaire, on the day following the death of the Duke d'Enghien, in January, 1815, and on the eve of the murder of the Duke de Berry."

Mademoiselle de Genlis asserts that she met the Comte de Saint-Germain in 1821 during the negotiations for the Treaty of Vienna; and the Comte de Chalons, who was ambassador in Venice, said he spoke to him there soon afterwards in the Piazza di San Marco. There is other evidence, though less conclusive, of his survival. The Englishman Grosley said he saw him in 1798 in a revolutionary prison; and someone else wrote that he was one of the crowd surrounding the tribunal at which the Princess de Lamballe appeared before her execution. 

It seems quite certain that the Comte de Saint-Germain did not die at the place and on the date that history has fixed. He continued an unknown career, of whose end we are ignorant and whose duration seems so long that one's imagination hesitates to admit it. 

Many writers who have studied the French Revolution do not believe in the influence exerted by the Comte de Saint-Germain. It is true that he set up no landmarks for posterity, and even obliterated the traces he had made. He left no arrogant memorial of himself such as a book. He worked for humanity, not for himself. He was modest, the rarest quality in men of intelligence. His only foibles were the harm less affectation of appearing a great deal younger than his age and the pleasure he took in making a ring sparkle. But men are judged only by their own statements and by the merits they attribute to themselves. Only his age and his jewels attracted notice.

Yet the part he played in the spiritual sphere was considerable. He was the architect who drew the plans for a work that is as yet only on the stocks. But he was an architect betrayed by the workmen. He had dreamed of a high tower that should enable man to communicate with heaven, and the workmen preferred to build houses for eating and sleeping.
He influenced Freemasonry and the secret societies, though many modem masons have denied this and have even omitted to mention him as a great source of inspiration. In Vienna he took part in the foundation of the Society of Asiatic Brothers and of the Knights of Light, who studied alchemy; and it was he who gave Mesmer his fundamental ideas on personal magnetism and hypnotism. It is said that he initiated Cagliostro, who visited him on several occasions in Holstein to receive directions from him, though there is no direct evidence for this. The two men were to be far separated from one another by opposite currents and a different fate.

The Comtesse d'Adhemar quotes a letter she received from Saint-Germain in which he says, speaking of his journey to Paris in 1789, "I wished to see the work that that demon of hell, Cagliostro, has prepared." It seems that Cagliostro took part in the preparation of the revolutionary movement, which Saint-Germain tried to check by developing mystical ideas among the most advanced men of the period. He had foreseen the chaos of the last years of the eighteenth century and hoped to give it a turn in the direction of peace by spreading among its future promoters a philosophy that might change them. But he reckoned without the slowness with which the soul of man develops and without the aversion that man brings to the task. And he left out of his calculations the powerful reactions of hatred.
All over the country secret societies sprang up. The new spirit manifested itself in the form of associations. Neither the nobility nor the clergy escaped what had become a fashion. There were even formed lodges for women, and the Princesse de Lamballe became grand mistress of one of them. In Germany there were the Illuminati and the Knights of Strict Observance, and Frederick II, when he came to the throne, founded the sect of the Architects of Africa. In France, the Order of the Templars was reconstituted, and Freemasonry, whose grand master was the Duke de Chartres, increased the number of its lodges in every town. Martinez de Pasqually taught his philosophy at Marseilles, Bordeaux and Toulouse; and Savalette de Lange, with mystics such as Court de Gebelin and Saint-Martin, founded the lodge of the Friends Assembled.

The initiates of these sects understood that they were the depositories of a heritage that they did not know, but whose boundless value they guessed; it was to be found somewhere, perhaps in traditions, perhaps in a book written by a master, perhaps in themselves. They spoke of this revealing word, this hidden treasure it was said to be in the hands of "unknown superiors of these sects, who would one day disclose the wealth which gives freedom and immortality."

It was this immortality of the spirit that Saint-Germain tried to bring to a small group of chosen initiates. He believed that this minority, once it was developed itself, would, in its turn, help to develop another small number, and that a vast spiritual radiation would gradually descend, in beneficent waves, towards the more ignorant masses. It was a sage's dream, which was never to be realized.

With the co-operation of Savalette de Lange, who was the nominal head, he founded the group of Philalethes, or truth-lovers, which was recruited from the cream of the Friends Assembled. The Prince of Hesse, Condorcet, and Cagliostro were all members of this group. Saint-Germain expounded his philosophy at Ermenonville and in Paris, in the rue Platriere. It was a Platonic Christianity, which combined Swedenborg's visions with Martinez de Pasqually's theory of reintegration. There were to be found in it Plotinus' emanations and the hierarchy of successive planes described by Hermeticists and modem theosophists. He taught that man has in him infinite possibilities and that, from the practical point of view, he must strive unceasingly to free himself of matter in order to enter into communication with the world of higher intelligences.

He was understood by some. In two great successive assemblies, at which every Masonic lodge in France was represented, the Philalethes attempted the reform of Freemasonry. If they had attained their aim, if they had succeeded in directing the great force of Freemasonry by the prestige of their philosophy, which was sublime and disinterested, it may be that the course of events would have been altered, that the old dream of a world guided by philosopher-initiates would have been realized.

But matters were to turn out differently. Old causes, created by accumulated injustices had paved the way for terrible effects. These effects were in their turn to create the causes of future evil. The chain of evil, linked firmly together by men's egoism and hatred, was not to be broken. The light kindled by a few wise visionaries, a few faithful watchers over the well being of their brothers, was extinguished almost as soon as it was kindled. 

Napoleon III, puzzled and interested by what he had heard about the mysterious life of the Comte de Saint-Germain, instructed one of his librarians to search for and collect all that could be found about him in archives and documents of the latter part of the eighteenth century. This was done, and a great number of papers, forming an enormous dossier, was deposited in the library of the prefecture of police. Unfortunately, the Franco-Prussian War and the Commune supervened, and the part of the building in which the dossier was kept was burnt. Thus once again a synchronous accident upheld the ancient law that decrees that the life of the adept must always be surrounded with mystery.

What happened to the Comte de Saint-Germain after 1821, in which year there is evidence that he was still alive? An Englishman, Albert Vandam, in his memoirs, which he calls An Englishman in Paris, speaks of a certain person whom he knew towards the end of Louis Philippe's reign and whose way of life bore a curious resemblance to that of the Comte de Saint-Germain. "He called himself Major Fraser, wrote Vandam, "lived alone and never alluded to his family. Moreover he was lavish with money, though the source of his fortune remained a mystery to everyone. He possessed a marvelous knowledge of all the countries in Europe at all periods. His memory was absolutely incredible and, curiously enough, he often gave his hearers to understand that he had acquired his learning elsewhere than from books. Many is the time he has told me, with a strange smile, that he was certain he had known Nero, had spoken with Dante, and so on." 

Like Saint-Germain, Major Fraser had the appearance of a man of between forty and fifty, of middle height and strongly built. The rumor was current that he was the illegitimate son of a Spanish prince. After having been, also like Saint-Germain, a cause of astonishment to Parisian society for a considerable time, he disappeared without leaving a trace. Was it the same Major Fraser who, in 1820, published an account of his journey in the Himalayas, in which he said he had reached Gangotri, the source of the most sacred branch of the Ganges River, and bathed in the source of the Jumna River? 

It was at the end of the nineteenth century that the legend of Saint-Germain grew so inordinately. By reason of his knowledge, of the integrity of his life, of his wealth and of the mystery that surrounded him, he might reasonably have been taken for an heir of the first Rosicrucians, for a possessor of the Philosopher's Stone. But the theosophists and a great many occultists regarded him as a master of the great White Lodge of the Himalayas. The legend of these masters is well known. According to it there live in inaccessible lamaseries in Tibet certain wise men who possess the ancient secrets of the lost civilization of Atlantis. Sometimes they send to their imperfect brothers, who are blinded by passions and ignorance, sublime messengers to teach and guide them. Krishna, the Buddha, and Jesus were the greatest of these. But there were many other more obscure messengers, of whom Saint-Germain has been considered to be one.

"This pupil of Hindu and Egyptian hierophants, this holder of the secret knowledge of the East," theosophist Madam Blavatsky says of him, "was not appreciated for who he was. The stupid world has always treated in this way men who, like Saint-Germain, have returned to it after long years of seclusion devoted to study with their hands full of the treasure of esoteric wisdom and with the hope of making the world better, wiser and happier." Between 1880 and 1900 it was admitted among all theosophists, who at that time had become very numerous, particularly in England and America, that the Comte de Saint-Germain was still alive, that he was still engaged in the spiritual development of the West, and that those who sincerely took part in this development had the possibility of meeting him.

The brotherhood of Khe-lan was famous throughout Tibet, and one of their most famous brothers was an Englishman who had arrived one day during the early part of the twentieth century from the West. He spoke every language, including the Tibetan, and knew every art and science, says the tradition. His sanctity and the phenomena produced by him caused him to be proclaimed a Shaberon Master after a residence of but a few years. His memory lives to the present day among the Tibetans, but his real name is a secret with the Shaberons alone. Might not this mysterious traveler be the Comte de Saint-Germain?
But even if he has never come back, even if he is no longer alive and we must relegate to legend the idea that the great Hermetic nobleman is still wandering about the world with his sparkling jewels, his senna tea, and his taste for princesses and queens even so it can be said that he has gained the immortality he sought. For a great number of imaginative and sincere men the Comte de Saint-Germain is more alive than he has ever been. There are men who, when they hear a step on the staircase, think it may perhaps be he, coming to give them advice, to bring them some unexpected philosophical idea. They do not jump up to open the door to their guest, for material barriers do not exist for him. There are men who, when they go to sleep, are pervaded by genuine happiness because they are certain that their spirit, when freed from the body, will be able to hold converse with the master in the luminous haze of the astral world.

The Comte de Saint-Germain is always present with us. There will always be, as there were in the eighteenth century, mysterious doctors, enigmatic travelers, bringers of occult secrets, to perpetuate him. Some will have bathed in the sources of the Ganges, and others will show a talisman found in the pyramids. But they are not necessary. They diminish the range of the mystery by giving it everyday, material form. The Comte de Saint-Germain is immortal, as he always dreamed of being.

JFK - forget the swine media. 10 facts.

As the fiftieth anniversary of the JFK murder conspiracy nears, it's worth remembering facts that the mainstream control media will never state. Many of the ignorant lumpen journalists are too stupid to even process such information, but here it is:

1. even the corrupt US government's official position from senate investigations is that JFK was murdered by a conspiracy.

2. acoustic, ballistic and computer analysis evidence all establish multiple shots by two or more shooters.

3. regardless of which actual shooter shot from where, there is a clear pattern of opportunities around the killing ground where JFK was shot, and there are witnesses to shooters leaving the area.

4. there are witnesses to out of place oswalds (OOPOs) indicating that the common intel practice of using doubles had been employed for Oswald. This indicates he is a patsy not an assassin.

5. there are many more witnesses to Oswald NOT being in place as an assassin. There are no witnesses placing him at the window where it is claimed he shot.

6. evidence was tampered with immediately after the murder. This also indicates conspiracy.

7. JFK was shot from the front, with a strike to his throat by either a small calibre bullet, a flechette, or a dart.

8. JFK was shot from behind and from in front with virtually simultaneous shots to the head.

9. there is photographic evidence of a shooter at the grassy knoll. This evidence is corroborative with eyewitness testimony from multiple directions.

10. Oswald was a FBI informant, a paid CIA asset and a trained linguist who was part of James Jesus Angleton's disastrous Returned Defector programme.

Mini found a way to transmit information by laser beam, using human brains as transducers without the need for an electronic interface. The Russians can do the same thing. Microwaves can be used as well. In March 1974 I must have intercepted one of Mini's transmissions by accident; it irradiated me. That's why my blood pressure went up so high, and the animals died of cancer. That's what's killing Mini; the radiation produced by his own laser experimentations." StumbleUpon

"They said there were 40 people affected - and that's just locally. No one seems to be able to answer any questions, and I'm very angry," said Ms Burton, from Wimborne in the county of Dorset, southwestern England.

Distraught Julie Middleton, 40, of Poole, Dorset, said police gave her the same figure.
She learned that the brain of her six-week-old son Regan was still in a jar at Southampton General Hospital 12 years after his death.

The "missing parts" scandal was exposed by The Sun, which highlighted seven cases amid a nationwide probe.

Permission to keep the organs was not needed at the time they were stored by the hospitals, but the law changed in 2006. A report in March will uncover a figure for the UK.


brain removal is another facet of the same phenomenon as cattle mutilations. There is a secret epidemic with equally secret surveys and measurements of it as it spreads. Although at this point it HAS spread, it's invaded everyone.

It's Time to Stop Messing Around
Why I Am Not Going to the Protest
I am not going to the protest. I am tired of protests: they don't stop wars. Not protests that are mostly about sign waving and hooking up with friends and strangers and feeling the solidarity and then going back to work or school on Monday. They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
Sure it FEELS rebellious, these government-permitted, media-ignored, totally predictable rituals-but come on, going to an anti-war protest hasn't been rebellious since Abbie Hoffman coughed up a fur ball at one in 1968. And in the context of the war on our civil liberties envisioned by Clinton/Reno and executed by your nemesis George W. Bush, they are very, very happy to have you protest and take your name and number. Or force you into a field, or a waiting pen to be locked away until they decide to let you out.
Personally I am tired of marching alongside people wearing masks and carrying signs about stupid Bush when we and everyone we know put together have not been smart enough to stop him. And the Bush bashing only makes the whole parade, err, protest look juvenile to the rest of the world.
Here is what I propose: let's stop messing around. No more anti-war. Let's stop the war. No more protest, unless it is part of some huge thing that doesn't involve business as usual the next day. How do you stop the war? Shut 'er down. No more business as usual. The target audience: the Democrats, and the presidential candidates who can't fall over each other fast enough rattling their little Democrat saberettes. ("Bomb Iran? I can top that, let's bomb PAKISTAN! Take THAT, cowboy!")
Being anti-war is a fashion statement, a political position, not a movement.

Media blacks out birth, life of the top public servant-elect

Media blacks out birth, life of the top public servant-elect

From the December 2008 Idaho Observer:

Media blacks out birth, life of the top public servant-elect

America’s first non-black, non-American black U.S. president-elect with no public records history invents an office and presumes presidency; Republicans and Democrats are mum, courts evade the issue and both the conservative and liberal media play dumb.
By Don Harkins Barack Obama was ordered by the U.S. Supreme Court to produce a certified copy of his birth certificate by Dec. 1. He didn’t. A U.S. Supreme Court clerk said that the justices will publish an opinion but would not commit to a time frame.
Though there are many public documents that Obama has refused to produce, some of which are listed below, the most important one is a certified copy of his birth certificate. Anyone who was born in an American hospital since the turn of the last century can produce a birth certificate and, if they refuse a court order, a copy could be subpoenaed. The fact that Obama cannot or will not produce the most basic documents is really strange; the fact that not one court in this country has ordered them to be produced in evidence for the record is stranger still.

A made man. The public records of most political figures are already in the public domain by the time they run for office so there is no hiding them. In the case of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), all Vietnam-era POW records, including his own, were conveniently sealed with his blessing in the 1990s.
The fact that Obama’s public records from infancy through adulthood do not exist suggests that his tracks began being covered when he was very young. The fact that records generated while he was a public figure in high elected political office have been in a perpetual process of being expunged further indicates that Obama, in the jargon of organized criminals, has been a "made man" since before he was born.
Indeed, a genealogical investigation into Barack Obama by Don Nicoloff (The IO, Sept. and Oct., 2008) strongly suggests that Obama was "created" and groomed his entire life to fill some purpose that is not likely to be in the best interests of America or her people. As bizarre as some of Nicoloff’s conclusions about Obama may seem, his behavior and the behavior of those who should be questioning his motives support rather than undermine Nicoloff’s assertions.
The courts. The plot against America thickens even more when you consider the manner in which state and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, has received, docketed and accepted filings into cases challenging Obama’s citizenship status only to sidestep rulings on procedural grounds. It should be of particular interest to Republicans that Obama would rather spend an estimated (to date) $500,000 on high-powered law firms to block the release of key records (like a birth certificate or a passport) than spend a few bucks arranging for them to be made available.
Proof of live birth controversy. When the issue of Obama’s citizenship status came up in June, 2008, his campaign quickly posted an electronic version of his Hawaiian "CERTIFICATION OF LIVE BIRTH" and posted it to the Obama 2008 campaign website. The document was allegedly authenticated by the Hawaii Department of Health and FactCheck.org, as his "birth certificate." But it is not a birth certificate. The Hawaiian "CERTIFICATION OF LIVE BIRTH" is a document available to any child in Hawaii over one year of age, regardless of where the child was born. The document posted to the campaign website and reproduced in The IO (Oct., 2008) clearly states at the top, "CERTIFICATION OF LIVE BIRTH.
Additionally, the "certification" document Obama posted states at the bottom, "ANY ALTERATIONS INVALIDATE THIS CERTIFICATE." Forensic analysis of the document Obama posted as proof he was born in Hawaii contains numerous anomalies that indicate it is a forgery (The IO, Oct., 2008). Proof that the document does not evidence Obama’s live birth in Hawaii can be inferred by the Supreme Court ordering that he produce other documents to prove he is a natural born U.S. citizen.
The Hawaiian "CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH" is a Hawaiian birth certificate issued a child born in Hawaii. If Obama has one, he is expending a lot of effort and resources to hide it from us (To our knowledge, a social security number for Obama has not yet been located, either).
Media sinning by silence. The media, both the liberal and conservative, sin by silence by refusing to take up the issue. The liberals (and Obama himself) are doing Obama supporters a terrible disservice by not admitting that the controversy exists. Most "Obamatons" have been celebrating since Nov. 4 in anticipation of the coming presidency and have no idea that serious challenges as to the actual identity of their "Obamassiah" have reached the Supreme Court.
The conservative media is betraying their listeners, watchers and readers by pretending they don’t know anything about the Obama citizenship controversy and by not demanding that certain records that would reveal his true history as a citizen and as a public official be made available. Even rabid "liberal haters" Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage and Bill O’Reilly are silent on the issue and play dumb when asked (even though they have all received thousands of calls and emails on the subject).
Risk to national security. When asked what they would think if it turned out that Obama had lied about being born in Hawaii, two Obama supporters said they would not care. When asked if they thought nondisclosure of his true identity could compromise national security, one said, "No" and the other said, "I hope not."
The attitude is short-sighted and shockingly naive. First of all, adults should seriously question the motives of anyone hiding his true identity. What can we infer from a president-elect who has already snubbed a U.S. Supreme Court order to produce documentation proving he is the "natural born U.S. citizen Barack Obama"—the next president of the United States ?
With the documentation Obama has provided to prove who he is, where he was born, and where he has been for large segments of his life, he could not get a minimum security clearance from any branch of the military. Since the office of president comes with it the responsibility of being commander-in-chief of the armed forces, the threat to national security jumps to "code red" if the man with his finger on THE button suddenly chose to reveal his true identity at that moment—and he is not one of us?
