"The South's shortsightedness was in not seeing themselves in the same boat as the slaves. That is what Spartacus had done in uniting all the slaves of ancient Italy collected as they had been from the far reaches of the Roman Empire. Had Southern whites and blacks preempted John Brown and joined together marching North, history would be much different," said Dr. Delano who suggests that Gary Webb's book Dark Alliance shows that 150 years following Emancipation, inner city blacks are still enslaved. "Do you think Ms. Pelosi's next film will tell the truth about that?" asked Delano.
Delano asserts that John Brown’s secret backer was George Luther Stearns who was working with his Boston Brahman friends to control the lead….as in bullets….market. The Civil War may have cost 600,000 American lives but the American power elites prospered. Among them were chosen Southerners....Jefferson Davis who laid out the Southern rail road route for the Northern rail road and transportation robber barons, Boston's Caleb Cushing who negotiated the first U.S. trade laws with China....a virtual replication of the British trade practices that would eventually lead to a Chinese Cultural Revolution, among them. Jefferson Davis, following his talks with Cushing, appointed monarchist and Scottish Rite Mason, Albert Pike, whose first American SR Temple was in Savannah, the eastern terminus of the Southern rail route, as agent to the Indians whose land they needed, too. The leading legal mind for the SR and KKK, a Roman Catholic with Tory sentiments and a Grand Dragon of the KKK, Pike's followers did not include the founder of the KKK, Nathan Bedford Forrest. Forrest, a Colonel whose threat to put Confederate General Braxton Bragg into a quick and torpid retirement for what Forrest perceived as treason would call for the abolition of his own KKK by 1869, a point confirmed by Civil War historians Ken Burns and Shelby Foote. Perhaps Forrest assessed as he had with Bragg that the Northern power elites through Pike and his followers had kidnapped the Klan as Bragg had Forrest's best efforts. Later, Pike would unite with the Italian wing of the SR brotherhood in New Orleans, followers of Guisseppe Mazzini, progenitor of the Italian Mafia.
In the Academy Award winning film, Gladiator, Caesar laments the corruption that has moved the Roman Empire from a leading Republic to a crumbling image of its former self. "Will I be known as the philosopher, the warrior, the tyrant? Or will I be the emperor who gave Rome back to her true self? There was once a dream that was Rome. You only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish. It was so fragile and I fear it will not survive the winter."
The American experiment is not fragile. "Democracy is ordained," said Karl Barth, but neither does it belong to the power elites who ride the backs of the democracy loving citizens who have won wars against the angered actions and reactions of other nation's often misguided power elites. Pike and Mazzini's alliance is an old game.
It was a brilliantly sinister propaganda ploy. Most Americans were led to believe that there was something wholesome about the Scottish connections to freedom, liberty and equality like Mel Gibson's image in Braveheart before we learned that his father was a neo-Nazi and that Mel threatened women or that his controversial passion play was handled by Regal Cinemas owned by UTIMCO, the University of Texas' privatized endowment program in a state whose underworld is known to be controlled by the New Orleans syndicate. Pike, like Gibson a Roman Catholic, is believed by many not to be eligible for Catholic Church membership based on a prohibition against Masonry. Not so. Even Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather myth which shows the Italian Mafia entering the U.S. primarily through New York City misses entirely this connection between Pike and Mazzini whose worship of Machiavellian, monarchical and pyramidal power structures flies in the face of the U.S. Constitution of "We the people".
Perhaps famous U.S. Senate Chaplain and American Scotsman, Dr. Peter Marshall, was unaware when he was made an honorary member of the SR in Washington D.C. in 1942, that his acceptance of the honor would have had the anti-monarchical Scotsman, John Knox, squirrel-caging in his casket as he assessed the real values of Albert Pike and his friends.
Nathan Bedford Forrest's picture is the only one hanging in Civil War historian Shelby Foote's Memphis, Tennessee office, presumably because of qualities not shared by any other Southern General including Robert E. Lee. General Braxton Bragg's buffoonery was far too recurrent to have been anything but subversion from Bragg's Southern river-opening losses at Fort Pillow and Donaldson to his place near the sinking of the Albemarle which elevated William Cushing as the first U.S. Navy SEAL. Indeed, Bragg's ancestor, C. Wright Mills, the radical sociologist at Columbia University would write about America's hidden realities in his landmark book, The Power Elite, pulling back the veil, though certainly not as far back as the Pentagon Papers or WikiLeaks, on the whole charade.
"It would also be fitting that in 1997 the University of Arkansas Press, the state where Albert Pike was Grand Dragon of the KKK, would release Walter Lee Brown's, The Life of Albert Pike, which smears General N.B. Forrest, a man who as a slave owner was reportedly watched over as he slept by a cadre of black body guards. Walter Lee Brown, Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Arkansas, denies Forrest's connections to the Klan he founded, thus discounting Forrest's departure from it, from Pike and from the SR Masons whose Tory and monarchical beginnings significantly departed from the Free Masonry of the Founding Fathers....Washington, Franklin and the others. Instead, Pike sought out among the elites of Georgia, Arkansas, Texas and other regions the pro-monarchist, pyramidal, Tory sentiments through which to concentrate power and redirect the American vision of its own destiny," said Delano. "Pike's SR Masons were like misguided semi-religious Protestant, Catholic and Anglican Royalist boot-lickers pushing the right wing of the Federalist Party right into Crypto-Nazi, Druid-dribbling, war-mongering, filibustering-Walker-Burr-ish, voo-doo-ish, prayer parties," Delano summarized.
The victors, however in-ignoble, write the history and they leave out the real motive behind the power grab. The Southern rail route to the Pacific across the flatter terrain of the Great Southwest would speed their program for getting their trains and New England built ships to the Orient...the same destination sought by Columbus. Abolitionist John Brown came from a family of New England ship builders supplying the lucrative China Trade. Across the Pacific lay what made Britain powerful...the British East India Company's lucrative China Trade...taken over by the new power, the U.S.….with its booty of silk for making the poor Southerners’ coarse cotton into fine fabrics suitable for the American and European power elites. There was something else, too, ....something infinitely more desirable, dependable as a source of wealth and power and virtually irresistible.”
"The Southern transcontinental rail route was long a dream of America's power elites. Tennessean Davy Crockett high-tailed it to Texas to help Stephen F. Austin, son of Moses Austin, the Missouri and Tennessee lead-miner, find more of the stuff when the Missouri lead mines played out….more bullets for Bostonian George Luther Stearns’ kind. Meanwhile, they found the biggest sulphur deposit in the Western Hemisphere, a sulphur dome near Freeport, Texas which will supply gun powder to this day as it did during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Vietnam War, Korean War, World War II, World War I, the Spanish-American War and every other American conflict since its discovery. Henry Kissinger will serve on the board of the sulphur's controlling company, Freeport-McMoran. There’s money in the bullets, lead and guns needed to fight the scam drug wars,” said Delano who also sees a continuity of relationship with President and Mrs. Obama and Obama's endorsement of every major Bush position since his taking office.
"Silas Lynch. You have to remember that Abraham Lincoln was a big-time railroad lawyer, that the railroad barons' agenda colored everything and that the Springfield, Illinois law firm of Sidley and Austin handled Lincoln's wife affairs. Sidley and Austin are hardly a Democratic law firm for which Michele Robinson Obama worked as a lawyer. Sidley and Austin merged with Brown and Wood, a New York law firm housed at the World Trade Center on 911 where George Herbert Walker Bush's son, Marvin P. Bush, also on the Board of the NCAA, worked for the security firm in charge of the towers on the day of the attack. Prescott Bush, Marvin's grandfather, was Vice-President at W. Averell Harriman and Company. Craig Robinson, the First Lady's brother was the head basketball coach at Brown University with its direct ties to Alexander Brown and Brown Brother Harriman," Delano continued noting that President Obama did not just rise to his position without substantial connections within this galaxy of dark power resources. "I read that Obama's favorite mixed drink is Scotch and claret wine, the favorite drink of Mr. Brown, the butler to Queen Victoria of England who introduce the Queen Mother to the same unusual concoction," said Delano noting the long-standing cross-Atlantic relationships between American and British power elites whose wealth is historically rooted in the same China trade.
