The Legalization of Child Pedophilia; A Very Sick World

California is Dying; So Goes our World

A fascinating perspective on the near future and its effect on various industries and people:

 

The FUTURE is approaching  faster than one can handle….!

 

In 1998, Kodak had  170,000 employees and sold  85% of all photo paper worldwide.  Within just a few years,  their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt.
What  happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years and, most people  won’t see it coming.
Did you think in 
1998 that 3 years later you would never  take pictures on film again?

Yet digital cameras were  invented in 1975.  The first ones only had  10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law.  So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. 

It will now happen  again with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and  electric cars, education, 3Dprinting, agriculture and  jobs.   Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.  Welcome to the Exponential  Age .      

 

Software will disrupt most  traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.

 

Uber is just a software tool,  they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest  taxi company in the  world.

 

Airbnb is now the biggest hotel  company in the world, although they don’t own any  properties.

 

Artificial  Intelligence:  Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world .  This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world,  10 years  earlier than expected.

 

In the US , young   lawyers already don’t get jobs.   Because of IBM’s Watson, you can get legal advice  (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with  90% accuracy compared with  70% accuracy when done by  humans.

 

So if you study law, stop  immediately.  There will be 90% less lawyers in the  future, only specialists will  remain.

 

Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer,  its 4 times more accurate than  human nurses.

 

Facebook now has a  pattern recognition software that can recognize faces  better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.

 

Autonomous  cars  : In  2018 the first self driving cars  will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will  start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car  anymore.  You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your  location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to  park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be  productive while driving.

 

Our kids will never get a  driver’s licence and will never own a car.

It will change the cities,  because we will need 90-95% less cars for that.  We can transform former parking spaces into parks.

 

1.2 million people die each  year in car accidents worldwide.  We now have one accident every 60,000  miles  (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in  6million miles  (10 million km). That will save  a million lives each  year.

 

Most car companies will  probably become bankrupt.  Traditional car companies  try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple,  Google)  will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on  wheels.

 

Many engineers from  Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.

 

Insurance  companies will have massive trouble  because without accidents, the insurance will become  100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.

 

Real  estate  will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people  will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighbourhood.

 

Electric cars will become  mainstream about 2020.  Cities will be less noisy  because all new cars will run on electricity.

 

Electricity will become  incredibly cheap and clean:  Solar production has been  on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.

 

Last year, more solar energy  was installed worldwide than fossil.  Energy companies  are desperately trying to limit  access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar  installations, but that can’t last.  Technology will take care of  that strategy.

 

With cheap electricity comes  cheap and abundant water. Desalination   of salt  water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@  0.25 cents). We don’t have  scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water.   Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

 

Health: The  Tricorder  X price  will be announced this year.  There are companies who will build a  medical device (called the “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works  with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample  and you breath into it.

 

It then analyses  54 bio-markers that will identify nearly  any disease..  It will be cheap, so in a  few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class  medical analysis, nearly for free Goodbye, medical  establishment.

 

3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from  $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it  became 100 times faster. All major  shoe companies have already started 3D printing  shoes.

 

Some spare airplane parts  are already 3D printed in remote airports.  The space station now has a printer that eliminates the  need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.

 

At the end of this year, new  smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print  your perfect shoe at home.

 

In China, they already 3D printed and built a  complete 6-storey office building.  By  2027, 10% of everything that’s being   produced will be 3D printed.

 

Business  opportunities: If you think of a niche  you want to go in, first ask yourself: “In the future, do I think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

 

If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea.  And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.

 

Work : 70-80% of jobs will disappear in  the next 20 years. There will be a lot  of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a short time.  This will require a rethink on wealth distribution.              

 

Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then  become managers of their field instead of working all day on their  fields.

 

Aeroponics will need much less water.  The first Petri dish produced veal, is now available and will be  cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural  surfaces is used for cows.  Imagine if we don’t need that space  anymore.

 

There are several start-ups  who will bring insect protein to the market shortly.  It contains  more protein than meat. It will be labelled as “alternative protein source”  (because most people still reject the idea of eating  insects).

 

There is an app called “moodies” which can already tell in  which mood youre in.  By   2020 there will be apps that can  tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying.  Imagine a  political debate where it’s being displayed when  theyre telling the truth and  when theyre not.

Revisionist History; The Jesuits founded America! As told by the Victors

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see a brick wall at the back of the theater.”   ~ Frank Zappa

The story of the Jesuits of English-speaking America is largely forgotten. They came to Maryland only shortly after their better-known brothers reached Canada and more than fifty years before Eusebio Kino travelled north to California. But they had no romance. The dreams of a new Christian empire, of a European system translated whole onto the American wilderness, were not theirs, nor did they find the heroic martyrdoms of an Isaac Jogues or a Jean de Brébeuf. In their day they published no annual letters, and no historian since has imparted to their story the epic vigor with which Francis Parkman chronicled the Canadian Jesuits.

Yet this small group of men laid stronger foundations for Catholicism in America than did the Spanish in California or the French in Canada.

Summary:

  • Rome, Maryland was the name of Washington D.C. before the richest man, John Carroll, a Jesuit, donated the land.
  • The White House is named after Jesuit, Andrew White, who helped found St. Mary’s Maryland and returned to England to die in his later years
  • The US, French, Russia, Britain, Australia, Chile, Puerto Rico, etc. all have the same colored flags
  • The US flag is a derivative of the hated East Indian Tea Company
  • Washington D.C. was founded on Feb 21, 1871 by Congress, beholden only to Congress oversite. This formed the US Corporation, The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and their 10 miles is a separate City/state beholden to no other country, including the United States of America
  • Jesuits founded Canada, at the same time as White establishing Maryland.
  • Jesuits considered Washington D.C. the “New Jerusalem”, or New Birthing of their NWO, so this is why then named the two states adjacent, VIRGINia and MARYland, or the VIRGIN MARY..get it?

Heritage Foundation transition team advisors

Now, the transition is getting an assist from Heritage Foundation officials including Becky Norton Dunlop, a distinguished fellow at the foundation; former Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese, a distinguished fellow emeritus at Heritage; Heritage national security expert James Carafano; and Ed Feulner, who helped found Heritage. Rebekah Mercer, a Heritage board member and major pro-Trump donor, is on the transition team’s 16-member executive committee, and a transition team source said she is working with Heritage to recruit appointees for positions at the undersecretary level and below (though she has struggled to find people interested in taking lower-level jobs, according to a New York Times report).

The transition team also includes other prominent activists and thinkers with close ties to Heritage, such as former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, the activist involved with several conservative groups who is running Trump’s domestic transition team. He has written for Heritage and has personal relationships with many at the organization.

This quote was said before Vatican II. Allow me to explain the relevance of this.

As a preface, the United States, I maintain, will be taken over by Russia and China. This will lay the foundation for the antichrist’s one world government to be a communist dictatorship.

The one world religion too will be led by the final antichrist Pope, but his religion won’t be the same Catholicism that we are familiar with. From the time of the Second Vatican Council, the Jesuits have been working to morph all religions into one as a primer for the bringing forth of the antichrist final pope of their making via the Jesuits’ ecumenical movement. The new age beliefs mixed with deceptions like evolution are more in line with what the one world religion will be like with the Jesuits having transformed the Vatican to align with some of these views already, like when the Vatican declared to subscribe to evolutionism under John Paul II and now with the Jesuit Francis the First, this transformation has gone into overdrive with the pope saying things like homosexuals may be saved; communistic heresy. Though there are traditional Catholics who are disillusioned with these changes, the majority of Catholics are perfectly okay with most of this because they will believe whatever the pope says and/or they already reside in socialist/communist areas like Mexico or Latin America. Regardless, the antichrist pope will have satanic powers that the world will marvel at. For one, he will be slain by a sword and will rise from the dead whenceafter all the world will wonder after him (Rev. 13:3). He will also blaspheme God and power will be given to him over “all kindreds, and tongues and nations” (Rev. 13:7). The antichrist’s Hebrew/Jewish false prophet similarly will have power to do great wonders. He will make fire come down from heaven to earth and this false prophet will cause all on earth to worship antichrist and his image. Those who refuse will be killed (Rev 13:15).

“We hang together or we hang separately” ~Benjamin Franklin

Who would design a flag with the exact same colors as the hated, just fought to the death British?

As well as the hated British East Indian Tea Company, who Freemasons, dressed as Native Americans (or “Indians”, because allegedly Columbus went the completely wrong way!).

US and East Indian Tea Company Flags

(note Red Cross of Switzerland, Knights of Malta, Columbus, etc.)

Betsy Ross was another fraud and lie made up as to who designed the US flag.  (here)

“The land known today as the District of Columbia bore the name ‘Rome’ in 1663 property records; and the branch of the Potomac River that bordered ‘Rome’ on the south was called ‘Tiber.”

Rome Maryland becomes Washington D.C. with the 1871 Organic Act

Founding of “Rome, Maryland”.  Rome, Maryland was the name of the city before the land was donated by Jesuit John Carroll, the wealthiest man in the US at the time, who also founded Georgetown University one year BEFORE, Washington D.C. was created

  “Catholicism came to Maryland on March 25, 1634, an auspicious day: the Feast of the Annunciation and the first day of the English new year. A small group, Protestants and Catholics mixed, landed on a small island in the lower Potomac near the Maryland shore, and Father Andrew White celebrated Mass to bless the beginning of their colony. The Calverts came to Maryland as the Puritans had come to Massachusetts, for piety and for profit. Seeking a refuge from the Penal Laws, they hoped also to reap the benefits of a bountiful new land.”

Father Andrew White is who the US “White” House is named after!!

The Jesuits came to minister to the Catholic colonists, but also with an eye to the conversion of the native population. “Who then can have a doubt,” White wrote before leaving England, “but that by this one work so glorious, many thousand souls may be led to Christ?” White and his companions overcame the hostility of some of the tribes, the prejudice of Proprietor and English settlers, and the great barrier of language to convert several tribal chiefs. At St. Mary’s City White made of an Indian hut the colony’s first chapel.

The name “White House,” however, was not used officially until President Theodore Roosevelt had it engraved on his stationery in 1901. Prior to that, the building was known variously as the “President’s Palace,” the “President’s House,” and the “Executive Mansion.”

The Capital of Amerigo, the District of Columbia is named after Pesephone, the Godess of War not the other Catholic Explorer Christopher Columbus, as the wealthy elite history books have sold us.
And the White House is named after a Jesuit Andrew White. Then Daniel Carroll (Catholic) gives the land for our National Capital. Then after 26 years of Jesuit education John Carroll (Catholic) founded Georgetown University in 1789 the same year we became a country.
 Andrew White (1579 – December 27, 1656) was an English Jesuit missionary who was involved in the founding of the Maryland colony.[1] He was a chronicler of the early colony, and his writings are a primary source on the land, the Native Americans of the area, and the Jesuit mission in North America. For his efforts in converting and educating the native population, he is frequently referred to as the “Apostle of Maryland.” He is considered a forefather of Georgetown University, and is memorialized in the name of its White-Gravenor building, a central location of offices and classrooms on the university’s campus.[2]

George Calvert, the first Baron Baltimore, whom White is credited in helping to turn to Catholicism in 1625, wrote to White from his colony on the Avalon Peninsula inNewfoundland after 1628. White’s further interest in America is shown a letter from Superior General Mutio Vitelleschi in a letter dated March 3, 1629, approving a mission to America. Though George Calvert died in 1632, his son, Leonard Calvert, second Baron Baltimore, continued the colonization program. Baltimore had wanted White to help found a new colony in the Chesapeake Bay which had been chartered June 20, 1632. White himself wrote of the benefits of converting the native population, and in a document dated February 10, 1633, he specifically advocates Catholic settlement in “lord Baltimore’s Plantation in Mary-land.” He describes to potential financiers a paradisaical land with majestic forests and fruitful soil, advertising 2,000 acres (8 km2) of land for each potential settler.

Apostle of Maryland

On November 22, 1633, he took Baltimore’s offer and set sail from Cowes on the Isle of Wight with lord Leonard Calvert and fellow Jesuits John Altham Gravenor and Thomas Gervase on The Ark, one of George Calvert’s ships.[4] Their landing on March 25, 1634, on St. Clement’s Island marks the birth of the Maryland colony. The anniversary of this date is now celebrated as Maryland Day. In saying Catholic Mass that day, he became the first priest to do so in the original thirteen English colonies.[5] By July of that year, White had written his first discussion on the new colony, titled A Relation of the Sucessefull Beginnings of the Lord Baltimore’s Plantation in Maryland. Sections of this were used to further advertise the colony.White spent most of the next decade in St. Mary’s City, working on English-Native American relations, particularly with the Yaocomico tribe, which consistently saw favorable trade treaties from Calvert because of White, and the Anacostans. In 1637 they were joined by Jesuits Thomas Copley and Ferdinand Poulton, and between 1634 and 1650 there averaged four permanent Jesuits in the Maryland Colony.[6] To further his missionary work, he wrote dictionaries and translated the catechism into the native languages. On July 5, 1640, he famously converted Chitomachon, the chief of the Piscataway Indians, to Christianity. The chief was baptized as Charles. He later baptized a princess of the Patuxent Indians, and much of her tribe.
In 1933, the architect and writer Christopher La Farge designed a monument to White that is located just outside St. Mary’s City.[7]

Return to England. The English Civil War was to cut short his missionary work. In 1644, Richard Ingle and Puritan colonists from the neighboring Virginian colony of Jamestown, which had previously rebuffed George Calvert’s visit, first raided St. Mary’s City. Ingle succeeded in burning the town and, with the aid of William Claiborne, in controlling the Maryland Colony. White was again arrested for his Catholic preaching, and in 1645 he was sent with Thomas Copley in chains to London. Once there, he was tried for the crime of returning to England after being banished in 1606, which carried the punishment of death. He escaped this fate by arguing that his return was not of his own will. His petitions to return to Maryland denied, he spent the last decade of his life quietly in England until his death on December 27, 1656.

The Jesuits’ Slaves

“Can a man serve God faithfully and posess slaves?” Brother Joseph Mobberly, S.J. asked in his diary in 1818. “Yes,” he answered. “Is it then lawful to keep men in servitude? Yes.”

The Jesuits of the Maryland province had always relied on plantations to support their ministries. The estates were extensive, totaling 12,000 acres on four large properties in Southern Prince Georges, Charles and St. Mary’s counties, and two smaller estates on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. In 1634, when the Jesuits arrived in Maryland, Lord Baltimore awarded them quasi-estates in which they were permitted to live off the rent of tenant farmers. However, as University Dean Hubert Cloke explains, “The system was totally antiquated and romantic, not related to reality, and they realized they were not going to make any money.” So, the Jesuits turned to indentured servants, English men and women who worked the land for set terms in return for the passage from England to Maryland. But as working conditions improved in England, the supply of indentured servants dropped and the Jesuits once again found a new way to work the land. By the 1680s they relied upon a fully developed slave system.

Compared to other plantation owners in the area, when it came to slavery, “The Jesuits were no better or worse,” according to Cloke. Many of the slaves had been gifts from wealthy Catholic families to sustain the Church. The abolition of slavery was not an issue in the area until the early nineteenth century, when Georgetown’s Jesuits became deeply divided over the issue of slavery.

“But they were not conflicted in the way you would want,” Cloke said. “They were conflicted over what to do about the threat of abolitionists.”

In a generational divide, an older group of Jesuits, mostly European born, felt a patriarchal connection to their slaves and were unwilling to sell them. A younger, American-born group, a minority, felt that the money invested in plantations should be spent on institutions in cities like Philadelphia and New York with their rapidly growing Catholic populations. It seems neither faction had any particular moral quandaries with the six plantations and the nearly 300 slaves owned by Georgetown’s and Maryland’s Jesuits.

This rift is just one of the things American Studies students learned when history professors like Cloke and Emmett Curran introduced the Jesuit Plantation Project into the American Studies curriculum in the spring of 1996. The project involved students transcribing and digitizing hundreds of documents from the Jesuit’s Maryland Province Index recording the Georgetown’s Jesuits’ complicated relationship with slavery.

With only two exceptions, all the higher-ranking Jesuits in the province during the time were foreign-born and of the older faction. Since only U.S. citizens had temporal jurisdiction, foreign Jesuits had no authority over the Mission’s estates.

This meant that a younger group of American Jesuits, a minority, controlled the destiny of the estates, and this group wanted to end slave operations.

“They considered the plantations and slaves as a losing business enterprise and thought the Society should rid itself of both plantations and slaves,” Curran said.

Abolitionists presented an economic rather than moral problem for these Jesuits. With a growing abolitionist presence in Maryland, some of them feared a devaluation of their property, their slaves. Maryland was a state in which slavery had a tenuous hold, the economy was no longer driven by slave labor. According to reports, the general debt of the mission was close to $32,000 by the 1830s, a large sum for the time.

“It was not a market for growing crops, but for growing slaves,” said Cloke. The real money was to be made not from the work a slave could do in Maryland, but from the hugely profitable business of selling the slaves downriver.

In 1815, Brother Joseph Mobberly, S.J. wrote a letter to John Grassi, S.J., the president of Georgetown College, listing three major reasons to sell the slaves. He wrote, “It is better to sell for a time or get your people free … Because we have their souls to answer for.” He then went on to explain that the slaves had become more difficult to govern, and he believed this to be the result of a growing abolitionist movement. Finally, in an extensive table of expenses, he concluded that the slaves should be sold because, “We shall make more and more to your satisfaction.”

Brother Mobberly, who served as an overseer on one of the estates, kept an extensive diary giving a bird’s eye view of the tension the Jesuits felt surrounding the issue of slavery. His diary explores the tension between Catholics, an already persecuted group, and the Presbyterians, Baptists, Quakers and Methodists who were outspokenly opposed to slavery. Mobberly, like other Jesuits, came to feel threatened and saw the issue as a Catholic-Protestant conflict. Involving everything from the Bible to Thomas Jefferson, Mobberly’s diary defended slavery. He explained that Abraham owned slaves, and wrote, “Abraham had God for his particular friend; and we do not read that God ever reproached him for keeping men in servitude. Therefore, it was lawful for him to possess them.”

Washington D.C., City of London & the Vatican, the true rulers of all lands. Each city-state is beholden to NO COUNTRY, and has its own laws, police force, mayor and constitutions:

  • Washington D.C. is a separate country (actually, a for profit private corporation written as: THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA whereas the United States of America is under the US Constitutional law. That is why our BIRTH CERTIFICATE, SSN, DRIVERS LICENSE, BANK STATEMENTS, COURT DOCUMENTS, etc. are all in capital letters.
  • Washington, D.C is overseen only by Congress, who resides in Wash, D.C.
  • US taxpayers pay their taxes (voluntarily) to the USA CORPORATION based in Puerto Rico, whose corporate owners are registered in the City of London and the Vatican.

The United States is Not What You Think It Is

“In 1790, President George Washington, a Protestant? appointed Congressman (Daniel) Carroll to head a commission of three men to select land for the ‘federal city’ called for in the Constitution. Of all places, the commission chose ‘Rome,’ which at the time consisted of four farms, one of which belonged to…Daniel Carroll. It was upon Carroll’s farm that the new government chose to erect its most important building, the Capitol.

The Corporation of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.

With Daniel Carroll providing land for the Capitol, with Charles Carroll as War Commissioner, controlling all the executive duties of the military department, with its ammunition supplies of cannon balls, shot, kettles, spikes and nails to the army, with John Carroll an intimate friend of Franklin, even living in Franklin’s house, and District of Columbia donor and Capitol Commissioner Daniel Carroll close to Washington, with John Carroll establishing Jesuit Georgetown University, whose seal proclaims a Roman eagle grasping the world and the cross, State and Roman Catholic Church with a banner in its beak, “Utraque Unum,”-“Both Together,” with the mayor of the District of Columbia Carroll’s nephew Robert Brent, it is not hard to see the proud Roman Catholic component of the American Revolution…and the Roman Catholic vision of a land where Roman Catholicism would be given the freedom to expand to the maximum…to take over the nation…and the world.

And
REMEMBER that in England and in the American colonies the Mass was forbidden. (here)

Catholicism came to Maryland on March 25, 1634, an auspicious day: the Feast of the Annunciation and the first day of the English new year. A small group, Protestants and Catholics mixed, landed on a small island in the lower Potomac near the Maryland shore, and Father Andrew White celebrated Mass to bless the beginning of their colony. The Calverts came to Maryland as the Puritans had come to Massachusetts, for piety and for profit. Seeking a refuge from the Penal Laws, they hoped also to reap the benefits of a bountiful new land.

   Below is a article written by Charles Carroll Carter is the board of trustees of the Charles Carroll House of Annapolis, Maryland, the birthplace of Charles Carroll of Carrollton.  He is a direct descendant of Daniel Carroll of Rock Creek. (here)
Charles Carroll, the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence; his cousin Daniel Carroll; and Daniel Carroll’s brother John Carroll, who became America’s first Catholic bishop.

Charles Carroll of Carrollton (1737-1832) was the most illustrious and best-known of the Carrolls. He was the only signer whose property — Carrollton — was mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. Carrollton was the 10,000-acre estate in Frederick County, Maryland, that Charles Carroll’s father had given him on his return to America from his education in Europe.

At the time he signed the Declaration, it was against the law for a Catholic to hold public office or to vote. Although Maryland was founded by and for Catholics in 1634, in 1649 and, later, in 1689 after the Glorious Revolution placed severe restrictions on Catholics in England, the laws were changed in Maryland, and Catholicism was repressed.

Catholics could no longer hold office, exercise the franchise, educate their children in their faith, or worship in public. With the Declaration of Independence, all this bias and restriction ended. Charles Carroll first became known in colonial politics through his defense of freedom of conscience and his belief that the power to govern derived from the consent of the governed. He was a staunch supporter of Washington, and when the war was going badly at Valley Forge, he was instrumental in persuading the Revolution’s Board of War not to replace Washington with General Horatio Gates. Carroll supported the war with his own private funds; he was widely regarded as the wealthiest of all the colonists, with the most to lose were the fight for independence to fail. Carroll was greatly acclaimed in later life, and he outlived all the other signers of the Declaration.

Daniel Carroll of Rock Creek (1730-1796) was a member of the Continental Congress (1781-1783), and a signer of the Articles of Confederation. He was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and one of only two Catholic signers of the United States Constitution. (The other Catholic signer was Thomas Fitzsimons of Pennsylvania.) At the Constitutional Convention, Daniel Carroll played an essential role in formulating the limitation of the powers of the federal government. He was the author of the presumption — enshrined in the Constitution — that powers not specifically delegated to the federal government were reserved to the states or to the people.

Daniel Carroll later became a member of the first United States Congress (1789-1791). He was also a member of the first Senate of Maryland, where he served up to the time of his death. He was appointed by Washington as one of the first three commissioners of the new federal city that is now known as the District of Columbia. In today’s terminology, he would have been considered the mayor of Washington, D.C.

At age 13 John Carroll traveled with his cousin Charles to attend school at the Jesuit St. Omer’s. Daniel returned home from there to manage the family inheritance. In 1753 John Carroll entered the novitiate of the Jesuits at Watten in the Netherlands. In 1758, John returned to St. Omer’s to teach, being ordained to the Jesuit priesthood in 1761. When John found out that “The Jesuit St. Omer’s was about to be seized by the French government in preparation for the royal edict suppressing the Jesuits in France, he with other teachers and their pupils move to Bruges.”

John Carroll (1735-1815), Daniel Carroll’s younger brother, was educated in Europe, joined the Jesuit order, and was ordained a priest. He founded a private school for boys and named it after the town where it was located, Georgetown, a port on the Potomac River that later became part of Washington, D.C. He went on to be elected — by all the Catholic priests in America — to become America’s first Catholic bishop. He later became archbishop of Baltimore. In any procession of American bishops, the archbishop of Baltimore always goes last in recognition of its role as America’s oldest diocese. In 1789, John Carroll founded the college in Georgetown that later became known as Georgetown University.

During a period when the Revolutionary War was going badly, Washington asked John Carroll to join a mission to Canada to seek the support of the French for the colonies. Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Chase, and Charles Carroll of Carrollton were the others on the four-man mission. While it failed, it established a relationship with the French, much influenced by the Catholic faith they held in common with the Carrolls. It bore fruit years later at Yorktown, where the largely Catholic-financed French fleet cut off supplies to British general Charles Cornwallis, and Washington was able to force Cornwallis to surrender and bring the war to an end.

John Carroll was an intimate of Washington. He wrote a prayer at the time of Washington’s inauguration asking God’s blessing on the president, Congress, and government of the United States — a prayer still very much in use today. Out of gratitude for John Carroll’s support during the war, Washington gave a modified version of the seal of the United States to the institution that is now Georgetown University, and that seal is still in use.(It might be said that John Carroll gave the seal to Washington)

Despite their enormous contributions to the American founding, the three Carrolls somehow fell below the radar screen of recognition as full-fledged founding fathers. Perhaps that was because they were Catholics in a country and a culture that for many years was overwhelmingly Protestant.

     “Charles Carroll was named by the Annapolis Committee of Correspondence to be a delegate to the First Continental Congress.”  Charles declined because he felt that his usefulness might be restricted by anti-Catholic sentiment engendered by the Quebec Act, however, he attended as an ‘unofficial consultant’ to the Marylanders. Charles Thompson and Charles, Daniel and John Carroll spent “the critical preliminary days to the congress lobbing for the inevitability of war. Thompson was already heavily invested in New Jersey’s Batso Furnace. Batso would furnish cannon balls, shot, kettles, spikes and nails to the army through the War Commissioner, who controlled all the executive duties of the military department…The War Commissioner was…Charles Carroll.

Jesuit missionaries learned Indian languages, and accepted Indian ways, to the point of conforming to them, especially when living among them. According to Jérôme Lalemant, a missionary must first have “penetrated their thoughts… adapted himself to their manner of living and, when necessary, been a Barbarian with them.”[3]:42–43 To gain the Indians’ confidence, the Jesuits drew parallels between Catholicism and Indian practices, making connections to the mystical dimension and symbolism of Catholicism (pictures, bells, incense, candlelight), giving out religious medals as amulets, and promoting the benefits of the cult of relics.[3]:43 (more)

Jesuit Missions

Jesuit missions in North America started during the 17th century and faltered at the beginning of the 18th. The missions were established as part of the colonial drive of France and Spain during the period, the “conquest of the souls” being an integral part of the constitution of Nouvelle-France and early New Spain. The efforts of the Jesuits in North America were paralleled by their Jesuit China missions on the other side of the world. They left written documentation of their efforts, in the form of The Jesuit Relations.

The Legalization of Child Pedophilia; A Very Sick World

WTF?!! California Democrats Legalize Child Prostitution

Pizzagate wasn’t only meant to raise suspicions of a pizza shop owner in DC and a whole DC strip. It was meant to convey the meaning of “cheese pizza” as pedophiles use it – code for child pornography. Now California Democrats have done the unthinkable – they just essentially legalized child prostitution by passing SB 1322.

SB 1322 states that children caught committing prostitution can no longer be arrested and charged with the pay for sex crime law. The law bars law enforcement from arresting underage sex workers only allowing them to temporarily detain kids caught in very limited circumstances.

Yes, you read that right, you don’t need glasses this isn’t a dream you can stop smacking yourself in the face to try and wake up. This is our sick reality.

Rape trees are trees or bushes that mark where sexual assaults have occurred by arranging the victim’s undergarments on or around the trees branches or on the ground. “Rape trees” are commonly and increasingly found along the United States and Mexico borders as illegal immigration grows.

Electoral College Votes Today! “Hillary Wins…Chaos Reigns….???

 

12.19.2016; Hillary Wins !!!..”So You’re Telling Me There’s Still a Chance….”

The electoral college is poised to pick Trump, despite push to dump him

Washington Post  – ‎42 minutes ago‎
Donald Trump’s improbable-then-unstoppable run for the presidency takes its last, formal step Monday as the electoral college meets to officially name him the winner.

The Final Lap to the White HouseNew York Times

At 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 6, members of the House and Senate will meet in the House chamber to count the electors’ votes. Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., as the departing president of the Senate, is expected to preside over the count, during which every state’s vote is opened and announced in alphabetical order. Mr. Biden will then declare the winner based on who has a majority of votes: at least 270.

Lawmakers can then challenge either individual electoral votes or state results as a whole. If an elector has chosen to vote against state results, this is the moment when lawmakers can petition to throw that vote out. Objections must be in writing and signed by at least one member of the House and one member of the Senate.

If there are any objections, the House and Senate will immediately split up to consider them and will have two hours to decide whether they support the objection or not. Both chambers will then reconvene and share their decisions; if both the House and Senate agree with the objection, they will throw out the votes in question. But Congress has never sustained an objection to an electoral vote.

After any objections have been resolved, the results are considered final. The next step is to swear in the winner on Jan. 20.

Who counts the electoral votes?

On Friday, Jan. 6, at 1 p.m., members of the House and Senate will meet in the House chamber to count those votes. Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., as the departing president of the Senate, is expected to preside over the count, during which every state’s vote is opened and announced in alphabetical order.

Mr. Biden will then declare the winner based on who has the majority of votes — at least 270. (That has led, three times, to an awkward moment when the sitting vice president has announced his own defeat, according to the House historian’s office. That happened most recently in 2001, to Al Gore.)

Electors will meet in their respective states, typically at the Capitol, where they will cast two votes: one for president and one for vice president.

They will then prepare what is called a “certificate of vote” with the results, which is then mailed or delivered via courier to the National Archives, where it becomes part of the nation’s official records, and to Congress.

Do electors have to vote according to popular vote results in their states?

Not necessarily. At least one elector has said he will buck his party and not vote for Mr. Trump. Nothing in the Constitution, nor in federal law, binds electors to vote a particular way. There are some state laws that bind them to vote according to the popular vote outcome in that state; others are bound by more informal pledges to their party.

Under some state laws, so-called “faithless electors” who vote against their party may be fined or even disqualified and replaced. No elector has been prosecuted for doing so, but then again, almost every elector has voted with their party’s results in the past. The Supreme Court has not weighed in on whether pledges and the related penalties are constitutional.

Obama’s Legacy; Endless War; Millions of Brown People Murdered; Black Lives Don’t Matter; Gitmo Still Open; $20 Trillion Debt; Wall Street New Highs; More Civil Rights Taken Away Than Any Other President

The mother of missing teenager Fares Ezzat, Meseda Abdel-Wahab, and his aunt at the family home near the town of Aga. Fares Ezzat is believed to have been among the estimated 500 people who drowned when a fishing boat carrying migrants, mostly from Somalia, Ethiopia and Egypt, capsized just off the coast of Egypt in April this year

Obama’s Legacy; Endless War; Millions of Brown People Murdered; Black Lives Don’t Matter; Gitmo Still Open; $20 Trillion Debt; Wall Street New Highs; More Civil Rights Taken Away Than Any Other President

President Barack Obama declared during his second inauguration speech, “We, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war.” However, one of the main legacies of Obama’s presidency may be that his administration further institutionalized a framework for a global “war on terrorism” with no end in sight.

In a report released on December 5 on the “legal and policy frameworks” for pursuing war, Obama suggests the frameworks show the U.S. is capable of defending its interests at home and around the world in a manner consistent with the “laws, values, and traditions” that are a “source” of America’s “greatest strength.”

There are six “theaters” of war, which the report highlights: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen. It omits Pakistan, where the CIA has launched drone strikes, as well as countries in Africa, like Mali.

The Real President Obama as told by His Man Lover

How many civilians have died as a result of these wars? How many civilians have been displaced and turned into refugees, as a result of U.S. warfare in these countries?

The report does not address the human cost of the global “war on terrorism.” It does not suggest whether any goals or objectives in this endless war have been achieved over the past 15 years. Instead, with the ominous election of Donald Trump looming over the country, the report serves as a document capable of insulating the Obama administration from criticism that officials may have gone too far in expanding the presidential power to wage war and carry out “national security operations.”

The track record of the U.S. in “theaters” of war is to pursue war policies, which aid in destabilization and spur the rise of extremist groups that become enemies of the U.S. These enemies provide the U.S. justification for expanded war efforts and touch off a deadly cycle that guarantees countries transform into failed states that may never be hospitable for humanity ever again.

Obama Backtracked On Pledge To Bring Afghanistan War To End

The war in Afghanistan was launched in 2001, as an act of retaliation for the September 11th attacks.

As of August 2016, according to the “Costs Of War Project” at the Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs at Brown University, at least 31,000 Afghan civilians have been killed in Afghanistan. Well over 40,000 Afghan civilians have been “seriously injured” since January 2009. The International Committee of the Red Cross had 9,200 new patients in 2015, and 1,261 were amputees.

It was estimated, as of June 2016, that there were 1.4 million refugees inside Afghanistan and “nearly 1 million Afghans were internally displaced.” At least 2.6. million Afghans are refugees in over 70 countries.

Obama pledged to withdraw troops and bring the occupation closer to an end, but in July, he announced 8,400 U.S. troops would remain in Afghanistan.

The percentage of civilians in Afghanistan killed by “pro-government forces,” according to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), has risen dramatically. Deaths of children continue to escalate since 2013, with 639 deaths and 1,822 injuries documented. The rate of civilian deaths from air strikes has also skyrocketed in the past two years.

Yet, no matter how long war continues to destroy the lives of Afghans, they can take solace in the fact that Obama made sure it is all supposedly being carried out according to U.S. law and international law.

The report is largely free of historical context. It indicates the U.S. is “conducting a systematic campaign of airstrikes” against the Islamic State and has “captured some of its members.” The U.S. is “advising” and “coordinating with Iraqi forces and providing training, equipment, communications support, and other support to select elements of the Iraqi security forces, including Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga forces.”

Entire Iraqi Cities No Longer Exist

To large extent, war has plagued Iraq since the Persian Gulf War in 1990, which was launched after Iraq President Saddam Hussein was no longer a tyrant America was willing to keep as an ally. The war based on lies launched by President George W. Bush’s administration in March 2003 merely added to the prior decade’s record of destruction. Out of the rubble of the U.S. invasion and in the prisons, where U.S. forces tortured detainees, the Islamic State was essentially born.

The “Iraq Body Count Project” estimates 168,000-187,000 civilians have died as a result of violence in Iraq since the 2003 invasion. More than 16,000 civilians have died in Iraq since March 2015.

According to the “Costs of War Project,” before fighting related to the Islamic State, 1.5 million Iraqis were “displaced internally or into neighboring countries.”

United States War Crimes

“The refugee crisis has impacted both Iraqis who fled and the communities that they left behind,” the “Costs of War Project” stated. “Engineers, artists, lawyers, academics, doctors, and other professionals were among the first to escape the war. This migration dismantled many of Iraq’s cultural institutions and stripped it of the services that middle class professionals provide.

Iraq once had one of the best health care systems in the region, but doctors fled. The use of depleted uranium and white phosphorus by U.S. forces has resulted in a staggering increase in the rates of cancer and birth defects. As journalist Dahr Jamail reported, congenital malformations in Fallujah outpace the rate of malformations seen in Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the U.S. dropped nuclear bombs.

Journalist Anand Gopal has reported on entire cities in Iraq that have been flattened in the war against the Islamic State. He said Ramadi looks “post-apocalyptic.” The city essentially does not exist anymore. And what has unfolded in the past few years is the end of Sunni Iraq, which is “very bleak.”

However, Obama has reassured the world that the “use of force” is being carried out in complete accordance with U.S. law and international law. Iraqis may be caught between the dark menace that is the Islamic State and the forces of U.S. empire, but certainly, they must find this reassuring.

In Syria, the U.S. is carrying out strikes against Islamic State forces. There are also “small teams of U.S. special operations forces” in Syria there to “coordinate” U.S. operations with some “indigenous ground forces.”

Pouring Gasoline On The Flames Of War In Syria

This is newer terminology for the Obama administration so it is unclear what groups qualify as “indigenous ground forces.” But the U.S. has employed a policy of arming “rebel groups” that has not gone well.

The New York Times reported in June, “Weapons shipped into Jordan by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia intended for Syrian rebels” were “systematically stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market.”

Militias armed by the Pentagon have fought brigades armed by the CIA. A report from Amnesty released about one year ago showed a lot of the Islamic State’s equipment and weapons came from stockpiles that the group captured from the Iraqi military and Syrian opposition forces.

As CIA and Pentagon weaponry changes hands in Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported over 86,000 civilians have died since March 18, 2011. At least 15,000 of those killed were children.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates 4.8 million people have fled Syria to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, and Iraq, since 2011, and 6.6 million people are “internally displaced within Syria.” (Note: Syrians who fled to Iraq have faced the predicament of having to flee to another country because of violence in Iraq.)

There are over a dozen countries supporting Syrian government forces and Syrian opposition forces so not all of the carnage can be solely attributed to the actions of the United States. On the other hand, the policy seems akin to putting out a fire with gasoline. For example, the CIA has supported groups like Ahrar al Sham, which committed a massacre in Latakia in 2013. Nonetheless, the Obama administration maintains it has followed the law by only providing “assistance” to Syrian groups and individuals appropriately vetted for ties to terrorist organizations.

Draining or sustaining the swamp? The Trump cabinet choices

have now mostly been selected, as only 6 weeks remain until the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017. Trump has met all sorts of people, including top NWO (New World Order) insiders like war criminal Henry Kissinger, ex-CIA director and Bilderberger David Petraeus, and CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) chief Richard Haas. Trump seems to have considerable reverence and admiration for these figures, e.g. he said he has “tremendous respect” for Kissinger and “likes and respects [Haass] a lot”. Meanwhile, some of the old Republican neocons (neoconservatives) that were present during the Bush Jr. years have been buzzing around Trump like flies around you know what, including Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani. Trump has also been attracting Goldman Sachs men like Anthony Scaramucci and Gary Cohn, in addition to the “Goldmen” below who are among the Trump cabinet picks. At this point many are wondering whether Trump is making America great again or making the swamp great again. Is he draining or sustaining the swamp?

Wilbur Ross

Trump Cabinet Picks #1: Wilbur Ross for Secretary of Commerce

Ross is the head of Secret Society Kappa Beta Phi, which was infiltrated by journalist Kevin Roose in January 2012 when they had they meeting and dinner in Manhattan, New York. He is estimated by Forbes to be worth $1.9 billion. He has worked for the Rothschilds (the preeminent powerbroking family of the New World Order) for 25 years! Not much more probably needs to be said. Here is an article describing what Roose saw inside the Kapaa Beta Phi meeting:

“The first outside to infiltrate Kappa Beta Phi in its eight decade life-span, Roose calls the fraternity so exclusive it is akin to a one-percenters club … Staying long enough to record skits and speeches given by new inductees and to take a few pictures, Roose was exposed when he tried to video a parody version of ‘I Believe’, the big number from musical, The Book of Mormon – for which the neophytes had dressed as missionaries. Indeed, the lyrics were changed to include the line, ‘I believe that God has a plan for all of us. I believe my plan involves a seven-figure bonus.’”

Steven Mnuchin

Steven Mnuchin

Trump Cabinet Picks #2: Steven Mnuchin for Secretary of the Treasury

Mnuchin is a former Goldman Sachs man. He is a Goldman trader turned hedge fund manager and Hollywood financier. During his 17 years at Goldman Sachs, he accrued net worth estimated about $40 million. He actually become a Goldman Sachs partner. In 2004 he started Dune Capital with money from arch-manipulator George Soros. In 2009, in partnership with Soros, John Paulson and others, Mnuchin bought the failed housing lender IndyMac for $1.6 billion. It was renamed OneWest.

OneWest was involved in a plethora of lawsuits surrounding its highly dubious foreclosure rate. Apparently, according to Politico, one case involved Mnuchin foreclosing on a 90-year-old Florida woman over a $0.27 payment mistake. Protestors flocked to the lawn of his $26 million mansion in Bel Air in 2011 due to all the predatory foreclosures. If approved by Congress, as Sectary of the Treasury, Mnuchin would become 5th in line for the presidency.

Mnuchin has indicated he wants more deregulation of Big Banking, such as undoing parts of the Dodd-Frank Act which come into being after the 2008 economic disaster. Just as Bill Clinton’s repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act led to the 2008 crash, will the repeal of the Dodd-Frank Act lead to a future crash?

Elaine Chao

Elaine Chao

Trump Cabinet Picks #3: Elaine Chao for Secretary of Transportation

Trump wants Elaine Chao as his transportation secretary. Chao was the Secretary of Labor under President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2009. She is also the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, an entrenched American politician (some may even say a swamp-dweller). If her appointment is successfully confirmed by the Senate, Chao would control the Transportation Department which oversees administrations under it such as the United States Maritime Administration. AlterNet reports on the conflict of interest in this selection:

“The appointment of Chao to this position is striking for at least one major reason: her family owns a major international shipping company. Chao’s father, James Chao, is the chairman of the Foremost Group, which he founded in 1964. Elaine Chao’s sister Angela is currently the deputy chairman of the company … Foremost purchases vessels and coordinates the shipment of commodities throughout the globe. In 2014, the Nation’s Lee Fang reported that 90 pounds of cocaine was seized by the Colombian Coast Guard from a vessel owned by Foremost … A 2014 report from the Louisville Courant revealed that Chao registers his ships in Liberia to avoid paying taxes in the United States.”

Betsy DeVos

Trump Cabinet Picks #4: Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education

Betsy DeVos is another extremely wealthy choice among the Trump cabinet picks. According to Forbes, her family has a net worth of $5.1 billion! She is the daughter-in-law of Richard DeVos, the co-founder of Amway, and the sister of Erik Prince! You may recall that Prince founded the infamous and notorious company of mercenaries (paid killers) used in Middle Eastern wars. First it was called Blackwater, then Xe, then Academi, as it kept changing its name to avoid scrutiny.

Strangely enough, DeVos is a big proponent of private charter schools, and has never worked in public education. RT quotes the NEA (National Education Association) president:
