Horses were quickly being replaced by railroads in Latham's day and then within 50 years by Henry Ford's horseless carriage. A rail line envisioned between Savannah, Georgia home of the first Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in America and founded by Albert Pike, would have linked with a William Walker/family dynasty acquired port in Baja, but dependent on a type of William Walker-Aaron Burr syndicate controlling the South. The Southerner's had a different plan....a Confederate envisioned port at San Diego with rail route across the Great Southwest laid out personally by Jefferson Davis from Savannah. Jefferson Davis, Albert Pike and Caleb Cushing were close allies in the push for the China Trade highway to the East Coast. Alternatively, there was the San Francisco port which given that city's backing by the New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Boston power elites whose financial resources and connections to European banks and with Latham the spokesman for the venture, made it the winner.
Today Latham's papers are domiciled at Stanford University, the school funded by the Central Pacific's, Leland Stanford, who linked his train track to E.H. Harriman's Union Pacific in 1869. Like the Bush Presidential papers, these papers are tightly controlled. While the defeated Southerners turned to the KKK for protection only to find that it, too, was commandeered by Albert Pike's followers with their connection to the New England China Traders through Caleb Cushing and to the Jacobite Scots and English monarchists, the victorious Northerners danced in Bohemian rituals in the woods north of San Francisco or played golf at the Walker County, Georgia country club, Augusta National, not far from Savannah in the Southern stronghold of the predominantly English Tory pre-colonial and post-colonial region. Scottish Rite Masons along the Eastern Seaboard, though appearing to be from the anti-monarchical John Knox Protestant tradition, had made the jump through the Roman Catholic Tory-aligned Albert Pike, toward a re-embrace of the primogeniture-based pyramidal structures of Europe. Meanwhile, the South's most celebrated general, Nathan Bedford Forrest, instinctively assessing General Braxton Bragg to be working for the Northern Rail Road interests, departed the Ku Klux Klan the same year that Harriman and Stanford drove the gold spike at Promontory Point, 1869, thus leaving the KKK to Pike and his followers and indicating that its out of control brutality no longer represented the Southerner's interests.
A few years before Latham's bill in 1855, William Walker was expelled from California turning his eye from a California port to a new canal zone in Central America while the Confederate plan for a Savannah to San Diego rail line was easily derailed by the Civil War which never announced the deeper and actual economic motive.... the low road to the Opium Trail and not the high moral road of Abolitionism. In the process the DuPonts, Remmingtons, Colts, Browns of Baltimore....including John Brown the abolitionist whose secret backers included Bostonian, George Luther Stearns, attempted to corner the bullett and lead markets. In time the Rockefellers joined the fray uniting in amalgams of new Christian communities in places like Brewster, Massachusetts as Pike aligned preachers from the American South or Lord Hamilton's Jacobite Scottish regions of Scotland were appointed to the chaplaincy of the U.S. Senate and giving the impression of a nation healed of it wounds and standing in solidarity with its own past....a clear prevarication.
The high road was formally abandoned as soon as a reasonable "Reconstruction" period had been endured by the South and exploited by the North. Within 100 years those freed by the Civil War were being re-enslaved by the sale of government delivered drugs from the China Traders mixed with new supplies from South and Central America in U.S. inner cities as evidenced by the investigative journalism of Gary Webb whose book Dark Alliance informed the testimony of Col. Bo Gritz and Col. Daniel Martin, who confirmed Webb's findings. Meanwhile reports from the poppy rich region of Afghanistan in 2012 revealed that the American trained military there was using helicopters to transport opium....as if that was not the plan from for the occupation in the first place.
Over 100 years earlier, moving to New York from San Francisco, Senator Latham, became the head the New York Mining and Stock Exchange which the SEC shut down in 1935, six years after the stock market crash and following decades of Latham’s company bilking its customers. “This is the origins of the NY Stock Exchange, and don’t forget that the government backed shipments from Shanghai to San Francisco were insured by AIG Insurance which true to character would not only take billions in bail out money, but also take over the management of key U.S. ports when the Dubai Ports deal fell apart,” said McKittrick not surprised that this insurance company made the case that it knew vert well how to run port trafficking.
So when the actor Michael Douglas recants his famous line in the movie Wall Street, "Greed is good," and says that he didn't mean it and that it was only a movie, what? He's lying? McKittrick didn't think so. "There is a difference between greed and desire. Desire is essential for life. Greed is not and will, in fact, kill life at some level. Greed is desire run amuck, out of control, off kilter. Desire gave Britain trade with China. Greed gave it the Opium Wars and an eventual Chinese Cultural Revolution. Desire gained Bernie Madoff an education. Greed got him ill-gotten gains a dead son and an lifetime prison sentence. Desire did the same for Martha Steward which uncontrolled turned to greed and got her some of the same. The verdict is out on what it got Hank Paulson and his cronies, or perhaps not. That whole affair has scent of a privy. A horse, like a good dog will desire to please its master...and I resist using the word 'master' because of the connotations. A stud horse or dog will desire to mate with all the mares in the pasture, but humans have managed, for the most part, to see this as greed and greed of this nature is not good, because as we have seen, for example, in the Hapsburgs or the Russian royal families, the power to control the entire gene pool can lead to some unintended consequences....cleft palates, strange chins, blood disorders and other what nots," said McKittrick.
U.S. power elites do the same thing in reverse. "The horse whisperers do not," said McKittrick. "And the future will need their wisdom more than that of the current brand of power elite poppy.....and I mean POPPY.... poppy-cockers."
