  • The nickname "Unconditional Surrender" Grant was an actual nickname referred by union soldiers. Edit: Grant was normally called nicknames by Soldiers like "Uncle Sam" or "Unconditional Surrender" Because of his first 2 initials (First and Middle) *Ulysses S.* Grant. Ulysses S. = U.S

  • This speech by JFK should be memorialized by a bronze plaque on each entryway of every educational institution /government building: The President and the Press excerpt: by John F Kennedy Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1961 two years before the assassination on November 22, 1963 .................................... The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know. ................................... We also know that JFK was in the process of dismantling the international bankers fiat currency system through the Federal Reserve, which JFK had turned over to the Treasury dept through an Executive Order since he knew it would never fly through congress. He ordered $1 bills to be backed by Silver and to be issued as US Treasury Notes instead of Federal Reserve notes and that was done before his assassination and were widely disbursed. A second blow to the international zionist bankers. They needed the Fed Reserve to complete their take over of the globe. "The high office of President has been used to format a plot to destroy the American's freedom, and before I leave office must inform the citizen of his plight." (John F. Kennedy at Columbia University, 10 days before his assassination). ........................................ The most rapacious are those who hide behind philanthropic works ............................ The New World Order is made up of various controlling components, Political, Military, Economic, Academic, Scientific, Cultural and Religious. These entities are the outer core of what you and I see and understand today while the inner core is concealed through the inner workings of occult societies of secrets. Their goal is a One World Government with a one world leader, their New Adam known as the Antichrist. Today, the United States plays a major role, holding onto a veneer of Christianity and a core of pure Gnostic Luciferianism ............................................... There's a deeper context to it which justifies one of the core ideas of the luciferian doctrine.Those that do not use their intelligence have none and therefore are no better than beast of burden and steaks at the table by choice and consent. From the initiate prospective anyone that sees the public notice and is too stupid to see it is no better than an animal. Note the mason's are renown for defaming this stellar president, they do everything within their power to besmirch him...imagine the gall of those people. He freely laid down his life for us knowing full well the evil forces surrounding him. Let it be known let it be trumpeted from the roof tops May his deeds be proclaimed thru all eternity and may masontre be crushed under the heel of justice

  • California being a Free State has less to do with being progressive, and more that they were so racist they didn't want slavery because it would mean importing African Americans. After all it was the same state that dispossessed Latinos, exterminated Natives, and worked to ban Chinese immigration.

      Simon DahlSimon Dahl2 ngày trước
    • Actually, it's just a common strategy of Red VS Blue mapping when portraying sides of a war. And if there is a 'good' team, then that team will usually end up as Blue; not much of a reason to it, just kinda the culture. Not always how it works, but sometimes. Also, the US is often portrayed as blue on most global maps nowadays. No real reason to it.

    • He literally just explained that the war wasn't about ending slavery for the North, but rather about preserving the union. This does not mitigate the fact that the South seceded from the Union to preserve the institution of slavery.
