The Freemasonic Order of the Golden Circle

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

Religion as a tool of commerce andrepparttar elite is well established inrepparttar 105753 oppressive doctrine called Manifest Destiny as well asrepparttar 105754 more recent Rerum Novarum. It makes me chuckle to seerepparttar 105755 complaint of Roger Williams who founded Rhode Island to get ‘away from’repparttar 105756 kind of thingrepparttar 105757 Indians suffered under - far, far and indeedrepparttar 105758 farthest imaginable ‘away from’ from is what we all should strive to allow. It raises mercantile progress above all else andrepparttar 105759 Yanomami in Brazil are being genocidally dealt with under this doctrine to this very day. Here is a little from a book titled Manifest Destiny andrepparttar 105760 words of Roger Williams to see if you can find humor inrepparttar 105761 situation.

“…repparttar 105762 primary test for full citizenship became membership inrepparttar 105763 Puritan church. Within these limits—and they were narrow, forrepparttar 105764 Puritans did not tolerate differences of religious opinion—Massachusetts practiced self-government free from outside control… More important, such access gave energetic Puritan merchants an opportunity to join inrepparttar 105765 profitable trade which grew up between America,repparttar 105766 West Indies and Great Britain. {Which included slavery and other immoral rip-offs of natives who had helped them.}

Not everyone foundrepparttar 105767 tight Puritan rule of Massachusetts to his liking. Roger Williams was one of those who resistedrepparttar 105768 strict standards of religious orthodoxy for citizenship… After a bitter dispute withrepparttar 105769 ruling oligarchy {Eastern Establishment of today.} in Massachusetts, Williams was forced to flee and he organized a new colony at Providence, Rhode Island. In 1644 Williams obtained a charter forrepparttar 105770 colony of Rhode Island, The new colony’s liberality was well described inrepparttar 105771 vigorous seventeenth-century prose of Williams himself: ‘We have long drunkrepparttar 105772 cup of as great liberties as any people we can hear of underrepparttar 105773 whole of heaven. We have not only been long free… fromrepparttar 105774 iron yoke of wolfish bishops, and Popish ceremonies… We have not feltrepparttar 105775 new chains of Presbyterian tyrants, nor in this colony have we been consumed withrepparttar 105776 over-zealous fire of (so-called) godly Christian Magistrates.’” (3)

I will stifle my disgust atrepparttar 105777 way power-mongers indulge ego and immoral duplicity in their constant need to dominate.

“In order to properly grasprepparttar 105778 spirit in which this book is written, it is necessary to remember that though it is not altogether an Indian story, it has an Indian background. The considering attitude towards all nature which appears throughoutrepparttar 105779 work, is best explained by a quotation from John G. Guilford’s Story ofrepparttar 105780 Seminole War.

“‘The meaning of sovereignty is not very clear to primitive peoples, especially torepparttar 105781 Indian. He rarely dominatedrepparttar 105782 things around him; he was a part of nature and not its boss.’ Hewitt says ofrepparttar 105783 Indian:’

‘In his own country… he is a harmonious element in a landscape that is incomparable in its nobility of colour and mass and feeling ofrepparttar 105784 Unchangeable. He never dominates it as doesrepparttar 105785 European his environment, but belongs there as dorepparttar 105786 mesas, skies, sunshine, spaces andrepparttar 105787 other living creatures. He takes his part in it withrepparttar 105788 clouds, winds, rocks, plants, birds and beasts, with drum beat and chant and symbolic gesture, keeping time withrepparttar 105789 seasons, moving in orderly procession with nature, holding torepparttar 105790 unity of life in all things, seeking no superior place for himself but merely a state of harmony with all created things…repparttar 105791 most rhythmic life… that is lived amongrepparttar 105792 races of men.’ This viewpoint is not peculiar to people of native blood but it is often found in those other races who have resided for many years inrepparttar 105793 wilderness.” (4)

The behindrepparttar 105794 scenes brokers of power like Pierre Dupont de Nemours and Eli Lilly orrepparttar 105795 Rothschilds and Rockefellers ofrepparttar 105796 Merovingians are seen as supporters of much ofrepparttar 105797 alternative history and humanistic efforts made in various times or eras of our history. Dupont arrangedrepparttar 105798 Armistice to satisfy his relative King George who some say financedrepparttar 105799 US War of Independence and needed to get his debt repaid. My brother Russ tells merepparttar 105800 Queen’s Rangers who becamerepparttar 105801 Queen’s York Rangers he was part of in Toronto. They felt they could have beaten Washington’s army who they outnumbered even without British troops. Then we sawrepparttar 105802 Duponts startrepparttar 105803 armaments industry in America andrepparttar 105804 rest, as they say, is history. This is what Manifest Destiny is really all about and it has little to do withrepparttar 105805 theological ideology of Divine Providence andrepparttar 105806 ascending nature of man’s evolution. You might know Sam Houston retired to live withrepparttar 105807 Cherokee after his stint inrepparttar 105808 halls of political intrigue. Here are some things you might feel deserve consideration.

"Texas hero and governor Sam Houston reportedly was a member ofrepparttar 105809 Knights {In my travelsrepparttar 105810 only overt and openly seen storefront KKK operation I saw was in Houston's suburb when I called onrepparttar 105811 manager of Mickey Gilley's bar.} atrepparttar 105812 time but resigned whenrepparttar 105813 Knights turned their attention fromrepparttar 105814 invasion of Mexico torepparttar 105815 secessionist movement.

It was inrepparttar 105816 cause of Southern secession that Bickley proved more successful, asrepparttar 105817 KGC came to formrepparttar 105818 nucleus ofrepparttar 105819 Southern military. According to writer Ollinger Crenshaw, 'The Southern press received plans ofrepparttar 105820 order with enthusiasm and many newspapers became its exponents... The Vicksburg 'Sun' saidrepparttar 105821 Knights ofrepparttar 105822 Golden Circle gaverepparttar 105823 South a military organization capable of defending her rights at home and abroad.'

Bloody People - A Right Royal Fiasco

Written by Birmingham UK Com

Prince Charles has put his Royal foot in it again. At a time so close torepparttar wedding, Prince Charles has providedrepparttar 105752 press with an ideal opportunity to rub its hands in glee atrepparttar 105753 comments he made at a photocall inrepparttar 105754 Swiss Mountains.

Prince Charles, William and Harry posed for a photocall without realising that microphones had been placed inrepparttar 105755 snow merely a few feet from where they sat. It was for this reason alone thatrepparttar 105756 comments were recorded with crystal clear clarity in what was supposed to have been a private conversation betweenrepparttar 105757 Prince and his two sons and which ended up being reported byrepparttar 105758 press as a disaster of his own making.

Reported as a Public Relations disaster, Clarence House officials were quick to point out that Prince Charles had not been pleased with paparazzi photographs takenrepparttar 105759 day before of William and his girlfriend Kate Middleton.

At one point Nicholas Witchell, reporter forrepparttar 105760 BBC, addressedrepparttar 105761 Royal group withrepparttar 105762 question "Eight days now torepparttar 105763 wedding, how are you, William and Harry feeling atrepparttar 105764 prospect of marriage?" Muttering under his breath Charles commented, "Bloody people, I can't bear that man, I mean he is so awful he really is". Unfortunately Prince Charles was unaware just how close and sensitiverepparttar 105765 microphones were.

Just what can we conclude from this incident? Is Prince Charles a pompous old stick inrepparttar 105766 mud? Should he have made such comments? Why such animosity towards Nicholas Witchell in particular?

To understand things a little better we need to look back intorepparttar 105767 past when Witchell upset Prince Charles with his coverage ofrepparttar 105768 deaths of Princes Margaret andrepparttar 105769 Queen Mother. This same reporter also reported incorrectly that Prince Harry may have taken cocaine. Prior to these incidents Witchell has a history of reporting onrepparttar 105770 Royal family that has not always been favourable and has caused some bad feelings between Prince Charles andrepparttar 105771 BBC. It has also been reported inrepparttar 105772 press that Nicholas Witchell is not popular with work colleagues and that there is something about him that causes people to dislike him.

So what can we conclude from this? A Royal Photocall such as this should have presentedrepparttar 105773 Prince positively and this event was an ideal opportunity forrepparttar 105774 Prince to woorepparttar 105775 general public and talk cheerfully about his forthcoming marriage and family. A famous person should know how to react in front ofrepparttar 105776 cameras and should expect to be hunted down and photographed by hordes of Paparazzi, shouldn't he? How did it all go so tragically wrong? Did it actually go wrong? Perhaps this wasrepparttar 105777 best thing that could have happened.
