Thomas Paine (1737-1809) is a figure from our revolutionary past who emerged from obscurity to upset the world with his popular writings. “He wrote the three top-selling literary works of the eighteenth century, which inspired the American Revolution, issued a historic battle cry for individual rights, and challenged the corrupt power of government churches,”researcher Jim Powell tells us.

After enduring a long illness Paine, 72, died in Greenwich Village, New York City on June 8, 1809. Though he was known throughout the world his friends, such as they were, were in short supply. Wikipedia says only “six mourners came to his funeral, two of whom were black, most likely freedmen.” The free world had abandoned Paine. Why?

Politically, the US had changed since he published his explosive anti- government pamphlet, Common Sense, in January 1776. The Federalists, under the intellectual leadership of Alexander Hamilton, were pushing for a United States of England, with all the corruption and taxes that came with it. Paine, writing during Jefferson’s administration, fired back with a series of articles titled “To the Citizens of the United States and Particularly to the Leaders of the Federal Faction (p. 908).” Referring to the Federalists as apostates who clung to the word while changing its meaning, Paine wrote that “federalism” now

served as a cloak for treason, a mask for tyranny. Scarcely were they placed in the seat of power and office, than federalism was to be destroyed, and the representative system of government, the pride and glory of America, and the palladium of her liberties, was to be over- thrown and abolished. [p. 915]

Given his scathing attack on Jefferson’s political opponents, why didn’t Jefferson and friends pay their respects to Paine at his funeral? Because he wrote a book, The Age of Reason; Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology, in three parts, that broke an unwritten rule: It critiqued the Bible in language commoners could understand.

Citing Numbers 31:13–47 as an example, in which Moses orders the slaughter of thousands of boys and women, and sanctions the rape of thousands of girls, at God’s behest, Paine calls the Bible a “book of lies, wickedness, and blasphemy; for what can be greater blasphemy than to ascribe the wickedness of man to the orders of the Almighty!” [Wikipedia]

For comments such as these Theodore Roosevelt libeled Paine a “filthy, little atheist,”

a phrase with as many errors in it as words, since Paine was fastidiously clean, stood taller than most of his contemporaries at five feet ten inches, and was a professed believer in God. [J. H. McKenna, Ph.D. ]

Double Standard at Work

Yet Jefferson is well-known today for a Bible he assembled in which he kept the words of Jesus and some of his deeds, but removed any mention of miracles or God. There was no virgin birth, no resurrection, no Easter Sunday. In a letter to John Adams in 1823, he wrote that “the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.”

In a letter to his nephew Peter Carr in 1787, Jefferson advised, “Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.”

Our third president could pass for an atheist, could he not?

We’ve been told since childhood that Jefferson is one of the greatest US presidents. He has his bust chiseled in stone on a mountain in South Dakota. He’s been enshrined in the Jefferson Memorial — but with a twist: The famous inscription reads “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man,” which sounds like something a Christian might say. But Jefferson wrote “god,” not “God,” in the letter from which this quote is extracted, and refers only to his impassioned opposition to a state religion. And as the author of the Declaration of Independence he has a front-row seat among the Founding Fathers.

Paine, however, “is, at best, [considered] a lesser Founder,” writes Harvard history professor Jill Lepore.

[Yet] Paine’s contributions to the nation’s founding would be hard to overstate. “Common Sense” made it possible to declare independence. “Without the pen of the author of ‘Common Sense,’ the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain,” Adams himself wrote. [Adams hated Paine.] But Paine lifted his sword, too, and emptied his purse. Despite his poverty—he was by far the poorest of the Founders—he donated his share of the profits from “Common Sense” to buy supplies for the Continental Army, in which he also served. His chief contribution to the war was a series of dispatches known as “The American Crisis,” and printed in newspapers throughout the states.

The American Crisis essays lifted the flagging spirits of soldiers and citizens alike.

No Common Sense, no Declaration of Independence. Yet Paine is not considered a Founder, and in some circles he’s only regarded as among “other notable people of the period.”

Paine has been dealt a cruel injustice. A case could be made that he is the country’s greatest Founder, by far, yet as I’ve discovered many Americans only vaguely recall mention of his name somewhere.

For Paine, in his view of the world, there can be no separation of Church and State. As he wrote in The Age of Reason,

It has been the scheme of the Christian church, and of all the other invented systems of religion, to hold man in ignorance of the Creator, as it is of government to hold him in ignorance of his rights. The systems of the one are as false as those of the other, and are calculated for mutual support.

For those who disagree, let them offer rebuttals, not vilifications.

The Federalists, under the intellectual leadership of Alexander Hamilton, were pushing for a United States of England, with all the corruption and taxes that came with it.

Very interesting article, thanks.

THE PILGRIM SOCIETY & ENGLISH-SPEAKING UNION    

The following report was received from Eric Samuelson in response to our inquiry as to whether the Pilgrim Society of the United States and the English-Speaking Union were formed by Cecil Rhodes' Milner Round Table Group as part of its purpose to federate the English-speaking peoples and to bring all habitable portions of the world under control of a British and American Commonwealth. ...

"...George Washington, to his credit, accomplished much for this country and his "Farewell Message" is no more timely today. However, it has also been asserted that: "The confession of General Cornwallis to General Washington at Yorktown has been well hidden by historians. History books and text books have taught for years that when Cornwallis surrendered his army to General Washington that American independence came, and we lived happily ever after until the tribulations of the twentieth century."

The King James Masonic Bible lists George Washington as a Mason. He was initiated into Masonry in 1752.(5) He took his first degrees in the lodge of Fredericksburg, Virginia on November 4, 1752. He was then passed on March 3, 1753 and raised in August 4, 1753 to Master Mason. George Washington visited a British military Lodge under a flag of truce and received a degree in it (probably the Mark degreee).(6) On April 28, 1788, George Washington became Worshipful Master of Alexandria Lodge No. 22 and was re-elected on December 20, 1788. He was the only Brother to be president of the U.S. and Worshipful Master of his Lodge at the same time.(7) Old Juba, Washington's trusted slave, used to row a priest across the Potomac to visit him and "Marse George made the sign of the Cross befo' he eat." The tale of the skeleton in the family closet was the conversion of George to "Papistry." Bishop Carroll made the statement that Washington died as did Emperor Valentinia who was received into the Church before his death.(8)

When George Washington badly needed financial help to pay his soldiers, the international bankers loaned him funds contingent upon appointing Alexander Hamilton as the first Secretary of the Treasury. Hamilton was all English at heart. He was an expert in British banking methods and was trained in the inner sanctum of international banking.(9) A retired Harvard professor once told students in his Oklahoma high school class that Hamilton and Washington agreed to a central bank if the war was ended.(10)

I have a Congressional Research Report that says as a fact that the first U.S. Bank was mostly foreign owned. On Yom Kippur Eve, 1779, Washington's soldiers, unpaid for months, were at a point of mutiny before a battle: "At last a desperate Washington sent a messenger on horseback through the night to Philadelphia with instructions to obtain, from Haym Salomon, a loan of $400,000, an enormous sum in those days, to pay and provision his troops. The messenger found Salomon in the synagogue, and a hasty whispered conference took place. Salomon rose and quickly moved about the synagogue, collecting certain friends. A small group left together, and that night the money was raised. Did Haym Salomon himself contribute $240,000 of the money? So the legend, perpetuated in many accounts, insists."(11)

Jonathan Williams (1750-1815), a dedicated American patriot, wrote in his now rare book, Legions of Satan (1781), that Cornwallis revealed to Washington that "a holy war will now begin on America ((IMO, see Psalm 2)), and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown." Lord Lothian, the British Ambassador to Washington, once called George Washington the founder of the modern British Empire.(12) This is the very same Lord Lothian honored by the 1939 Pilgrims banquet! ..."

Isaiah 10:12Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.

13For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:

14And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.

15Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood.

16Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.

17And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;

18And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standardbearer fainteth.

19And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.

A Remnant of Israel Shall Return

20And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.

21The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.

22For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.

23For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.

24Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt. 25For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction. 26And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt. 27And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing....

That was the secret destiny of DeeCee...to bring in the Luciferian Jew World Order.

The Two Seals of our Doom

"...At the base of the pyramid, in roman numerals, is MDCCLXXVI, which equals the year "1776." Most people are led to believe that this represents July 4, 1776 in which America declared her independence. This is not true! The MDCCLXXVI represents May 1, 1776 the founding date in which the Illuminati was officiated. As Jesus Christ is to be the foundation for a good Christian life (I Corinthians 3:11), the Illuminati based their foundation on the evil ways of their god, Lucifer (Satan).

In short, this first seal is telling us that on May 1, 1776, a 'New World Order' had been created. The head of this order is Lucifer and it would be based upon depravity and rebellion. This group, of course, is unlike any other on Earth, for it is 'hell-spawned' with the intent of taking over planet Earth for Satan. ..."

Title: OUR ORIGINAL AMERICAN MASONIC FOREFATHERS CONTINUALLY DEDICATED AMERICA TO SATAN FROM 1791 TO THE LATE 1890'S! Part 1

Subtitle: In a book released in 1999, written by a noted Astrologer and heartily endorsed by the 33 Degree Supreme Commander of The Supreme Council, Southern Jurisdiction, we read that the entire nation and its key government buildings were dedicated to the Dog Star Sirius, which in occult lore is Satan. ...

It stands to reason Satan would hate America above all other countries, being the only country ever founded on Christ. The Luciferians have to destroy Christian America in order for their Jewish King Despot to rule the world. They have been chipping away at her since George Washington and his pals took away the religious test oath and allowed the antichrist Jews to get their foot in the door.

See George Washington's lasting gift to generations of Jews

www.csmonitor.com/2004/0915/p12s01-lire.html

"The day when the Jew was admitted to civil rights, the Christian State was in danger...the entrance of the Jew into society marked the destruction of the State, meaning by State, the Christian State." (Antisemitism: Its History & Causes).

It has been suggested that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson may have been Jewish. I HAVE also read Jefferson was Illuminati.

"Religious tests, particularly in Virginia, played a major role in the creation of the First Amendment. Jefferson and Washington, both Jewish, and Madison, a Baptist, had to conceal their religious identities to overturn religious tests preventing those outside the state ecclesiastical establishments from running for office. In the 1770s, eight of the original thirteen states required public officials be Christian in their state constitutions, discriminating against Jews or religious minorities. Jefferson and Madison's legislation on religious freedom reveals their motives were anything but secular, as does an analysis of their political actions. Furthermore, Roger Williams' 'Bloudy Tenent of Persecution for Cause of Conscience' which mentions a 'wall of separation' was a pre-Lockean source for the First Amendment, and reveals even earlier sources, including a lost work by Martin Luther...."

www.researchgate.net/publ...s_for_the_First_Amendment

They're all related to the British Monarchy, who ARE Jewish.

“The Jew is not satisfied with de-Christianizing, he Judiazizes, he destroys the Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference but he imposes his idea of the world of morals and of life upon those whose faith he ruins. He works at his age old task, the annilation of the religion of Christ.” (Benard Lazare, L’Antisemitism, p. 350; Rabbi Benamozegh, quoted in J. Creagh Scott’s Hidden Government, page 58).

“The Jew…is not content merely to destroy Christianity, but he preaches the gospel of Judaism; he not only assails the Catholic or the Protestant faith, but he incites to the unbelief, and then imposes on those whose faith he has undermined his own conception of the world, of morality and of life. He is engaged in his historic mission, the annihilation of the religion of Christ.” (Bernard Lazare, Antisemitism: It’s History and Causes, London: Britons Publishing Co., 1967, p. 130).

Have you ever compared the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence and Psalm 2

I have noted something I find highly suspicious...

"When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them,

A copy of the Declaration of Independence was intercepted being sent to the Jews in Amsterdam:

"...". . . in Philadelphia, July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was written. A copy was sent to Amsterdam via the small Dutch Caribbean Island of St. Eustatius. The Declaration was intercepted by the British at sea.

"An accompanying letter with the Declaration of Independence was also intercepted and sent to London as being a secret code about the document that needed to be deciphered - the letter was written in Yiddish.

We might ask here: WHY was a copy of the Declaration of Independence sent to Amsterdam via the Jews at St. Eustatius? It is likely that the final details of the planned "American Revolution" were worked out from that quarter. We are not privy to the content of the letter that accompanied the document, just the fact that it was written in Yiddish..."

www.sweetliberty.org/perspective/jewishpersecution18.htm

A rather similar and striking (IMO) phrase from Psalm 2:

1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us....

It has become clear (to some of us, anyway), that they weren't really separating from Britain...they were in cahoots with her!...so who were they REALLY seeking independence from?

I believe Psalm 2 was foretelling the Declaration of Independence (from the LORD and His annointed, from the people of the cross and from the charter to spread the gospel).

Have you heard of The Empire of the City? Three city-states, The City of London, D.C., and Rome/Vatican. The three red stars on D.C's flag stand for these three interlocking cities. They are ALL controlled by the Jewish Money Power (centered in The City of London), and I believe it is they who are still pulling the strings.
