Oliver Cromwell and George Washington

Just before he was poisoned, Cromwell was about to grasp the kingly crown.
Washington could not be crowned king because he was
and could not father a royal dynasty!!

The Cromwellian Revolution in Great Britain was a precursor to the American . . . and French Revolution....The script for the American and French Revolution was actually written during the bizarre episode in Britain's history called the Interregnum.

The Cromwellian Revolution in England was the precursor to the American Revolution.

The New Model Army was the model for the Continental Army.

King Charles I was beheaded, followed by a temporary Commonwealth, and then the monarchy was restored under Charles II.

Immediately after the execution of his father, Charles II was proclaimed king by the Parliament of Scotland, but the English Parliament refused to recognize his title to the throne.

Cromwell became commander in chief of a standing army called the New Model Army.

This was the first standing army in English history.

Cromwell's reign was temporary, but the British standing army has never been disbanded.

After the execution of Charles I, Oliver Cromwell was proclaimed Lord Protector of England. He became commander-in-chief of the newly founded New Model Army:

The New Model Army began as an instrument to win the Civil War and became an instrument to secure a revolutionary government whose base of popular support grew increasingly narrow. It was kept standing for 15 years. Thus, for the first time in its history, England directly experienced the effects of a large peacetime military establishment. (Lois, No Standing Armies, p. 51).

After the temporary reign of Oliver Cromwell, the monarchy was restored under King Charles II.

He kept the standing army, but the name was changed to the king's GUARDS.

In February 1661, the New Model Army was greatly reduced and became the nucleus for the king's Guards:

The Guards, like the New Model Army before them, were different from any other force the nation had had before. They were considerably more numerous than any of the ceremonial guards previous kings had had, numbering in 1661, according to "An Abstract of His Majesty's Guards," 3,200 men and 374 officers." Moreover, they were created by a legitimate king in peacetime without any recourse to Parliament. The Venetian Ambassador thought they were "noteworthy" because they were "entirely dependent" upon the king. In view of the wide efforts immediately preceding the Restoration to make the military force dependent upon Parliament, this fact was extraordinary. Equally noteworthy was the partisan quality of the king's Guards. The court was bombarded with requests for a post in the Guards by men who recommended themselves on the basis of their past loyal service to Charles I. The earliest army list dating from the spring of 1661 showed that many of the officers were former royalist field officers. As early as July 1661, it was also noted that many of the Guards were Catholic. So long as Charles held the affection and trust of his subjects, these facts were accepted. But as events and policies poisoned the relationship between the king and Parliament, the Guards became the object of increasing suspicion and objection. (Lois, No Standing Armies, p. 82).

The Restoration of the monarchy gave the king and his Jesuits their heart's desire: a professional standing army.

The Coldstream Guards are the direct successors of the New Model Army founded by Cromwell.

The British Papal Empire began with this standing army.

Before the Restoration, nobody trusted the king with his own private army. After the Restoration, everything changed.

The New Model Army and the Continental Army!!

The New Model Army should have been called the New World Army because it was the precursor to the Continental Army led by general Washington.

General Washington was commander in chief of the Continental Army.

Unlike Cromwell, he didn't go into battle spouting Bible verses . . . because he didn't even own a Bible!!

The Continental Army was the nucleus of the "U.S." Army.

After the "surrender" of the British to general Washington in 1781, most people expected that the Continental Army would be disbanded, and everybody would return to peaceful civilian occupations, with military matters left to the state militias.

However, that did not take place. The Continental Army was only reduced and became the "U.S." Army. Under general Anthony Wayne it became known as the Legion of the United States.

General Wayne was poisoned by general Wilkinson, who then became commander in chief of the "U.S." Army!!

Arch traitor Wilkinson was known as Agent 13 in the Spanish archives.

Wilkinson kept the "U.S." Army away from New Orleans during the War of 1812.

During the War of 1812, Wilkinson led the "U.S." Army on a disastrous invasion of Canada in order to keep the soldiers away from New Orleans—the final target of the British invasion force.

The temporary federal capital!!

Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution called for the establishment of a 10 mile square federal district for the new government, but it did not specify where this capital would be located.

Congress met for the first time in New York's City's Federal Hall where the President was inaugurated. Federal Hall was designed by French architect Pierre L'Enfant.

George Washington was inaugurated as first President of the U.S. on April 30, 1789.

His vice president was John Adams.

Philadelphia–the city of brotherly lovewas supposed to be the permanent capital of Revived Israel.

In July 1790, after much rancorous debate, the decision was made to locate the capital to Philadelphia for a period of 10 years:

By July 12 both houses of Congress had voted to relocate the capital in Philadelphia for 10 years–until the turn of the century–after which it would move to a permanent site on the Potomac. The Pennsylvanians went along with the agreement, convinced that once the capital was located in Philadelphia it would never move. Adams was inclined to agree, A capital, he said, ought to be in a great city, an idea no Virginian would ever have entertained. (McCullough, John Adams, p. 426).

Philadelphia (the City of Brotherly Love) was indeed the ideal location for the new capital. Once the capital was located in Philadelphia, most people believed that the city would be the permanent home of the new government.

Philadelphia was the ideal choice for the new capital.

It was very convenient for George to attend mass in Old St. Mary's Church.

Mysteriously, a deadly plague struck Philadelphia in August 1793, which caused many to reconsider moving the capital.

In 1793, a deadly plague broke out in Philadelphia, which killed thousands of people, and caused many to reconsider the location of the capital city:

By the last weeks of August people were dying in Philadelphia at a rate of more than twenty a day. In September, as the death toll rose rapidly, Benjamin Rush and other physicians, helpless to stop the plague, advised all who could leave the city to do so without delay. The federal government and most businesses shut down. Bush Hill, where the Adamses had lived, was converted to an emergency hospital. To avoid contamination people stopped shaking hands and walked in the middle of the streets. (McCullough, John Adams, p. 426).

During the plague, George Washington was laying the cornerstone for the new temporary federal capital.

Pierre L'Enfant (the Child) designed the new temporary federal capital.

L'Enfant was a sinister member of the Militia of Zeus and Minerva.

George Washington–in full Masonic garb–laid the foundation stone for the Capitol on Sept. 18, 1793.

Masonry was just a cover for the "banned" Jesuits. Before the Jesuits were "banned" by Pope Clement XIV in 1773, they had metamorphosed into Masons, so everybody just relaxed and thought that the Jesuits had self-destructed.

L'Enfant was a fanatical devotee of horoscopes and astrology. After consulting a horoscope, he chose the Sept.18 date for the laying of the Capitol cornerstone.

He believed that aligning buildings with certain stars . . . and filling the capital with zodiacs, pagan statues, and pyramids . . . would defeat the purposes of JEHOVAH.

The Rotunda in the Capitol was once dominated by a massive sculpture of a bare-chested George Washington as Zeus.

A huge statue of George Washington as ZEUS originally dominated the interior of the Capitol Rotunda.

The statue was later removed from the Rotunda as just too overtly pagan.

Helmeted Spear-shaker Minerva dominates the top of the Capitol and the Washington skyline.

A Spear-shaker and augury was also involved in the founding of ancient Rome. Romulus hurled his spear of laurel into the ground and it landed on the Quirinal Hill. Romulus later took the name Quirinus as his surname . . . which means Spearman.

The location of the new temporary capital on the Potomac River offered absolutely no strategic defense to an invasion by a foreign or domestic enemy.

In November 1800, John Adams was the first President to occupy the White House in the new federal temporary capital.

General Jackson did more fighting in 2 hours than general Washington in 6 years!!

George Washington was appointed commander in chief of the Continental Army in June 1775. Even though the British were more that anxious to surrender to Washington, it wasn't until October 1781 that "victory" was finally achieved.

General Andrew Jackson was the hero of the Battle of New Orleans.

Not one soldier of the professional standing army created by Washington fought with general Jackson at New Orleans.

The brave militia–so despised by George Washington–saved the Louisiana Territory from a British conquest.

The Battle of New Orleans only lasted about 2 hour, but during that time, general Jackson's small militia inflicted an overwhelming defeat on the massive British professional army.

The Pentagon is the direct successor of the Continental Army!!

The huge Pentagon standing army is the direct successor of the Continental Army. Here is what Thomas Jefferson said about King George III in the Declaration of Independence:

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. (Declaration of Independence).

No colonial legislature ever gave its consent to a standing army....When the Constitution did give its approval to the raising of standing armies, their duration was not to be for more than 2 years:

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years. (U.S. Constitution, Section 8 ).

The Pentagon standing army has been around since 1941, financed by a direct tax, which Rhode Island refused to ratify in 1782.

Ominously, the Pentagon chairman is a "practising Catholic" and Jesuit to the core.

Here is a quote by a GREAT Briton, written in the year 1697, about the menace of STANDING ARMIES to the liberties of the people:

This subject is so self-evident, that I am almost ashamed to prove it: for if we look through the world, we shall find in no country, liberty and an army stand together; so that to know whether a people are free or slaves, it is necessary only to ask, whether there is an army kept amongst them? (John Trenchard).

And another quote about the menace of standing armies within the seat of government:

...and I hope I shall make it appear, that no nation ever preserved its liberty, that maintained an army otherwise constituted within the seat of their government: and let us flatter ourselves as much as we please, what happened yesterday, will come to pass again; and the same causes will produce like effects in all ages. (John Trenchard).

If only the leaders at the Pentagon would take time to read the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States!!
Antichrist will plant his tabernacle between the seas!!

Just before the end of time, Daniel the Prophet predicted that Antichrist would plant his tabernacle, and make his last stand, between the seas:

And he (Antichrist) shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him (Daniel 11: 45).

The great victory of general Jackson at New Orleans, and the Union victory in the Civil War, only postponed the planting of Antichrist's tabernacle between the seas.

The Exodus from Egypt is a marvelous type of Armageddon and the end of the world. When the Egyptians were pursuing the children of Israel at the Red Sea, JEHOVAH sent his MECHANIC-ANGELS to pull off the wheels of their chariots–in order to slow them down:

And it came to pass, that in the morning watch JEHOVAH looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, and took off their chariot wheels, that they drove them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for JEHOVAH fighteth for them against the Egyptians (Exodus:14:24-25).

In these last days . . . we cannot stop . . . but only slow down . . . Pharaoh's last mad charge . . . so all true Christians should become MECHANICS for CHRIST!!
