Caesar Must Be Born Again and Again

Among the “Successors” of Alexander the Great, it was specifically Ptolemy Soter who had captured and then ruled Jerusalem. He had done this not so much by personal military valor, but a combination of trickery, coercion and inducement. It nevertheless created a precedent for Antony to follow in his designated role as the Roman Ptolemy Soter. Antony in fact took Jerusalem in 37 BC (or thereabouts) using Roman troops and through direct material support to his regional alter ego Herod.

As in Ptolemy’s time, Jerusalem fell on a holy day (one involving a fast) - not necessarily also on the Sabbath as in Ptolemy’s day, but probably in a sabbatical year. As with Ptolemy, Herod made use of “pleadings, threats and the judicious use of force,” not so much to gain cooperation of the Jews of Jerusalem, but to ensure that the Roman army left him something and someone to be king over! Although the account of Josephus explicitly compares the capture of Jerusalem by Herod to a similarly bloody one exactly 27 years earlier (“to the day”) under Pompey, he also clearly adapts various details from Ptolemy’s much more restrained conquest, and depicts Herod as the one exercising that restraint.

Immediately after subjecting Jerusalem, Herod further humbled the Jews by appointing a new High Priest that was marginally qualified, if at all, due to his obscure pedigree and previous status as a foreign captive. Next, Herod baited the Jews by agreeing (ostensibly upon the urging of his “Hasmonean” wife Mariamne) to unceremoniously remove his unpopular choice in favor of the last remaining “Hasmonean” prince. The reversal of a Herod decision was immediately and hugely popular, but in this case Messianic fervor was whipped up so that it could just as abruptly be crushed. After the Jews had become enamored with the tall and handsome young prince, he was carelessly killed in a silly water sport. Strangely, the Herodian court was in as big a hurry to remove this youngest surviving “full-blooded” Hasmonean as they had been to install him in the first place. They were evidently even willing to lie about his age (pass him off as several years older) to make this happen. But, why?

Josephus mentions the age of High Priest Aristobulus (III)/Jonathan three times. He was said to have been 16 years old when his Hasmonean kin insisted that he be appointed High Priest in Jerusalem. At the age of 17 he presided as High Priest at an important Jewish festival and performed the duties flawlessly. However, the supposedly jealous Herod had him murdered just short of his 18th birthday. Josephus makes the curious remark that Jonathan was tall for his age, which is an illogical attribute for a nearly adult male of 17. Most males have reached their final height by then. Such a statement would have made far more sense for a male of age 12, which is about how old Caesarion would have been in 36 BC – the generally accepted year of Jonathan’s drowning at the hands of Herod’s Gallic goons.

The staged murder of Alexander IV (the eldest son of Alexander the Great) occurred when he was about 13 or 14 years old and is considered to have happened in the same year (209 BC) as the “birth” of Ptolemy II Philadelphius. Likewise, the birth of a new Philadelphius is generally placed in the same year (36 BC) as the death of the last Hasmonean High Priest. It seems that in order to fulfill the applicable Ptolemaic tradition, there was a need to eliminate one of the main identities of Caesarion, the eldest son of Julius Caesar, and at an early age. Due to the circumstances it was not quite yet convenient to jettison the name of Caesarion. However, the Hasmonean alias of Caesarion would have been every bit as prestigious, if not more so. And doing so at this particular time also served other purposes, as discussed above.

Note: The chronologies of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Centuries BC are not fully precise, but the intent of the de facto Roman royal family to reproduce Ptolemaic history is still clear (regardless of what years it actually happened).

Even as one manifestation of Caesarion was being removed from the world stage, another one was being created. When the Donations of Alexandria were being made (34 BC), Caesarion was almost exactly the same age as Alexander IV when his kingly career was transformed though identity “shape-shifting.” There had been a lengthy delay of around 13 to 14 years between the birth of Alexander IV and his “rebirth” as Ptolemy II Philadelphius, the son of Ptolemy Soter. Similarly, there was nearly 14 years delay between the birth of Caesarion around 47 BC and the announcement through the Donations of Alexandria of his “rebirth(s)” in 34 BC. This appears to have been quite intentional.

The almost exclusive promotion of Caesarion is surprising. Judging by his Hasmonean description, Caesarion was “tall, handsome and regal in bearing, even as the kings of old.” He was what everybody wanted in a future king and was being given every opportunity and advantage to make that hope his destiny. According to the Donations, Caesarion stood to inherit the choicest regions of the Near East under four separate identities. As Caesarion he was heir to Egypt. As Alexander Helios he was heir of Media and Parthia/Persia. As Drusus he was heir in Rome. And as Philadelphius he was heir in Syria and Cilicia, as well. However, he still only had the status of heir apparent. He was not yet the official successor. That required the establishment of a natural dynasty of his own. Yet, of the two princes, Tiberius was slightly less inbred with the leading princess, Cleopatra Selene/Julia the Younger, and therefore more likely to be fertile with her. He also had a gentle disposition, which is more consistent with what we know about the highly venerated Ptolemy II Philadelphius. Tiberius, like the second son of Alexander the Great, was much neglected, but would be a significant player in the royal drama to come.

Octavius (Augustus) as the New Antiochus

As the oldest prince of his royal generation, Octavius, the future Caesar Augustus, would have naturally been typecast as the new Antiochus, who had been the oldest prince in the royal generation following that of Alexander the Great. Antiochus was adopted as the heir of King Seleucus, and eventually became successor to the most prestigious throne of the day despite not having a royal son of his own. (The Ptolemaic throne would not rival the Seleucid for some time.)

Prior to the “death” of Julius Caesar in 44 BC, Octavius (the former Ptolemy XIII) had already been paired with the senior princesses, namely Berenice IV (Roman: Fulvia, “Dumb Blondie”) and Cleopatra VII (Roman: Scribonia, “Lady of Letters/Scholarly”). Finally, the youngest princess, Arsinoe IV, was married to Octavius in 42 BC under the name Clodia Pulchra (“Lame Beauty”), but after two years they too proved to be an infertile couple and the union was dissolved in order to give Cleopatra another chance (and also to allow her eldest daughter to be recognized as heiress in Rome). After another two years, Cleopatra stepped aside and allowed Octavius to remarry Arsinoe under the name of Livia Drusilla. This was done, not just to honor the wifely preference of Octavius, but to legitimize the two eldest royal princes (Caesarion and Tiberius) as potential successors to Augustus in Rome (and as a safeguard in the event that Augustus would be unable to produce a royal son of his own).

If Arsinoe and Drusilla were one and the same, then Cleopatra VII obviously had not put her kid sister Arsinoe to death. In fact, they obviously were reenacting earlier Ptolemaic history in which the first queen named Arsinoe escaped from a temple of Artemis (where she too had taken refuge) by dressing in rags and allowing her own servant girl to be sacrificed in her place. Any aristocrat worth their salt would have known about this precedent and understood that Arsinoe was only forfeiting her Egyptian identity (even as everyone else was required to do at the time) and not her actual life. Moreover, multi-lingual aristocrats would have easily recognized that the Roman name Drusilla and Greek name Arsinoe were largely synonymous (both denote “strength”).

Note: In a witty poetic retort to Antony, Octavius made it quite clear that he wasn’t the least bit interested in any further couplings with Fulvia, i.e., the former Berenice IV, whose biological clock was striking midnight.

After failing to produce an heir by any of the eligible royal females (Berenice IV, Cleopatra VII or Arsinoe IV), Octavius was obliged to accept heirs produced for him. This was the royal way. Surprisingly, though Tiberius was the elder of these two princes, it was the younger who was first established as heir. Caesarion, who was "reborn" as Drusus, was actually older than Tiberius and of higher birth in a royal sense. The birth order had to be switched in Rome out of necessity, but it didn’t change their relative ranking as princes. The imposition upon Octavius of two male heirs was also done in repetition (“fulfillment”) of yet another Ptolemaic precedent. In the absence of a true son, Antiochus I had first accepted Prince Seleucus as his heir. Prince Seleucus was later suppressed (as Caesarion/Drusus would be) in favor of a second heir, Antiochus II. Similarly, Tiberius would ultimately replace Drusus as successor.

Note: In Heroes of the Hellenistic Age it was shown that Prince Seleucus was also known as Ptolemy Epigone (“The Heir”) and was a natural son of Alexander the Great.

Unbeknownst to the common Roman, Drusus and Julia would have been the ideal/desired dynastic match from the start. However, when Julia reached a marriageable age (of around 14 years old), Drusus was still (officially, not actually) five months her junior, and therefore not even close to marriageable age for a Roman male. Therefore, Caesarion had to marry Julia under a different assumed Roman name, that of Marcus Claudius Marcellus. As husband of Julia, Marcellus projected the imperious bearing of a king and was even considered heir apparent during the life-threatening illness of Augustus during that time. However, after about two years (25 BC – 23 BC), Marcellus and Julia were unable to have any children and the marriage was terminated with the claimed death of Marcellus from unspecified causes. Nevertheless, these two monarchs in the making, who were once even regaled as Cleopatra Selene and Alexander Helios, simply remarried (around 22 BC) under different names. Julia was also known as Antonia Major and Caesarion had assumed the identity of the domineering Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus (son of the Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus, i.e., Julius Caesar, who had scripted the Battle of Actium and set the royal house in order before his actual death).

Note: Other scenarios/identifications (associations between royal and Roman figures) are certainly possible, but the above are the most likely ones given the royal pecking order as it is currently understood.

Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus, as the surname implies, was both red-bearded and barbarous. He was a rude, crude dude and performed his acts with complete impunity. He regularly insulted Roman dignitaries. He thrilled and scandalized Rome with reckless chariot racing, by hosting animal shows and staging ultra-violent gladiatorial events. He also required both knights and married women to participate in a raw form of stage-acting called the pantomime. At this point in Roman history, Ahenobarbus had become a stock role. A prince assigned this name was expected to be a hot-tempered, rough and ready character that championed simple (rather than sumptuous) living, was basic (rather than eloquent) in speech, and catered to populist fervor for games and hedonistic entertainments. It appears to have been a role that the young Caesarion relished.

After Marcellus was removed as “son-in-law” of Caesar, the very jealous magnate Marcus Agrippa (former Ptolemy XIV, slightly younger brother of Ptolemy XIII/Octavius) promptly took his place as the new husband of Julia. Any sons of Marcus Agrippa by Julia would have been eligible for succession. However, the marriage also provided a covering for Julia to bear children to Octavius as well as other princes, such as the former Ptolemy Philadelphius. Julia was not the biological daughter of Augustus. She was the much vaunted (and still living) Cleopatra Selene, daughter of Cleopatra VII. She was also the best hope of Octavius (and every other prince) to establish their kingly legacy. Octavius (now the formidable Caesar Augustus) was possessive of Julia and able to justify it based on patriarchal Roman culture. Nevertheless, Julia was not beholden to him and motivated to produce royal children by as many qualified males as possible. The later Roman Emperor, Caligula, shockingly claimed that Augustus and Julia were not only sexual partners, but also the parents of his own mother Agrippina the Elder. Ironically, this may be the reason why Augustus was held in such regard in Christian tradition. He had not only sired the monster Caligula, but more importantly, was part of the bloodline of a Roman prince also known as Jesus.

The Free Thinker and Free Thinking: Equals Freedom and Spirituality

By Fahim A. Knight-El

I am constantly asked by those who visited my Blog about my abbreviated online Bio, which indicates that I am a Free Thinker, and many have doubled down to asked, what does that actually mean? Webster online dictionary defines Free Thinking: "as a philosophical viewpoint which holds that position regarding truth should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, revelation, or other dogma." Now, Free Thinking for me was a spiritual calling (or transformation and transition) that can only be obtained by the journey of life, it involved something much deeper than our natural human instincts and intellectual inclinations to achieve and disperse knowledge and challenge ideals. Although, this will forever be a part of the process and to the outside world will perhaps stand as the judgmental variable and parameters of determining whether or not you will be received as a true Free Thinker; this will also be your own proof positive litmus test and will serve as your own personal tangible barometer (not that you should need such verification or affirmation to validate this determination).

The measuring stick will, however, always be rooted in your courage and willingness to weigh all evidence (which will be presented in literary or verbal forms and/or presented in the theoretical and ideological frameworks of organizations and movements) that is presented and not be shy to render a critique and analysis in order to prove that the presented argument was flawed and lacked evidentiary proof or it had met the standards of truth based on the rigorousness of an impartial investigation. I was led to an academic book authored by Mary E. McGann titled, Critical Thinking and Writing in the Disciplines this book became good training ground for me in becoming a critical thinker and what that entailed.

I grew up between the Pentecostal Holy Church and the Baptist Church faith traditions. The Pentecostal experience was always full of spiritual energy, there were shouting, singing, crying, dancing, plenty of testimonies, out loud scripture readings—it was an environment of spiritual electricity (they would congregate what appeared to be seven days a week and the ministers wore the titles of prophets and apostles and each service was like a high powered revival (I am speaking now directly to black folk this was our collective experience)—I would covertly be playing behind my mother's back with my brothers and sisters and with other devious children in the church (you were not allowed to eat candy, talk and definitely not play). These were some long sessions and as a child you tried to make the best of all this preaching; I knew from time-to-time I had to yell out with other members 'thank you Jesus', I would then be safe from momma's wrath (it seemed like she had eyes in the back of her head).

My mother and other Elders would enter a realm of spirit referred to as the Holy Ghost or become touched by the holy spirit and it was liken to an outer-body experience, which is unexplainable outside of the black Christian holiness experiences and traditions. I know white folk think they understand this, but they do not; this spiritual energy goes back to our ancient African ancestors and was the embodiment of invoking traditional African religious-ethos that made its way through the horrific and horrid voyage known as the Transatlantic Slave Trade, a crime against humanity (they could not kill our spirit) and it survived in our DNA and made its way across the Atlantic Ocean. The Black Christian Pentecostal is a living testimony of our continued connectedness to our African heritage even to this very day the drums, tambourines, the organ and piano and at times the beauty of the black human acapela voices was music to the ears (the human voice by far is the greatest instrument ever created).

I did not arrive at this stage, because, it was something that I initially sought, but I do believe that I was predestined to be one of those free spirited souls that could not be confined by the gravitational pull of proselytizing indoctrination of intended doctrines; of course even this would prove to be to shallow to bind me to accept one single thought as my life path. I met this Zinn Master in my life’s journey and he told me that nothing in life was coincidental or accidental (or occurred by happenstance) and wherever, we are in space and time, that is where we are supposed to be and he looked at me and said the universe arranges these things even before our allowed physical carination, and given permission to exist on this plane (in this sphere).

I looked at him as though, he had lost his mind; he must have detected my lack of comprehension and my inability to process these thoughts at that time. He only said that one day, I would understand that All real lessons have a duality in meaning and interpretation, but must first be understood from the spiritual realm (this was a metaphysical discourse). I was offered a small book titled, Tao The Ching by Lao Tzu, this book of ancient Chinese wisdom and philosophy freed my mind of the western dialectic worldview into accepting the eastern ancient Sages and Gurus wisdom and spiritual principles as having a much deeper meaning and the wisdom therein just felt that it was God talking directly to you.

In 2006 Rhonda Byrne published a book titled, The Secret, she pulled together twenty-four highly touted spiritualist who shared various intellectual and spiritual experiences and involvement in the esoteric, occult and Gnostic schools of thoughts in order to make an attempt to package ancient wisdom that had shaped humanity’s spiritual existences based on the universal principles of good that had touched all cultures, races, nationalities and this knowledge had alter humanity’s orientation to life down through the ages of time—these various spiritual intellectuals shared mystical, mythical, healing, and indigenous knowledge that was rooted in the folklore of ancient civilizations and the benefits of the observance of metaphysical outcomes. Some of them spoke outside of the concepts of organized religion. It was a clear indication that western man had failed and his failure has led to an earthly and human imbalance; it has placed him on a collision course with the universal powers.

I think European New Age thinkers such as Eckhart Tolle who authored the book titled, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment and A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose and even Reverend Rick Warren who authored the book titled, The Purpose Driven Life; these Caucasians have come deeply in contact with our indigenous knowledge and are articulating it on a broader scale, but they must not forget that they have borrowed this wisdom from the fathers and mothers of civilization. I was given this little pocket sizes book titled, As Man Thinketh by James Allen that I still carry every place I go, it is full of powerful wisdom and jewels and with little doubt Allen had drank from the fountain of the ancient masters and had adopted their universal principles.

This wisdom affected me differently than the wisdom of Qur'an and the Bible yet, I totally understood that all of this had an interconnectedness with the original divine source although this wisdom contained in the Tao The Ching left know doubt that it had been passed down my many ancient generations and it even predated the Bhagavad Gita ,it sent me on a spiritual journey, it also predated the 'Pslams of David' and from those pages, I was a changed human being—I truly tapped in my Pineal gland. Energy and power source that has baffled Europeans for over 6,000, but indigenous and original people of the earth within their spiritual customs, rites, sacraments, practices and rituals knew how to alter energy polarities and shift energy sources to transcend into Astro-beings this was the highest form of enlightenment. I balanced this off by being exposed to Ra Un Nefer Amen books titled, Metu Neter, Vol. 1: The Great Oracle of Tehuti and the Egyptian System of Spiritual Cultivation and Metu Neter Vol. 2: Anuk Ausar, The Kamitic Initiation System.

Erich Von Daniken in his book titled, The Chariots of the Gods, it would be his white Eurocentric intellectualism that put him in denial of the great Pyramids of Kemet (Egypt) were constructed by the indigenous Nubians who had occupied Kemet for over 20,000 years before European intervention, they were the original Egyptians. These recent wars in Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, etc., have led to the theft, looting and discretion of ancient artifacts of antiquity (these assaults were carried out systematically) but let me be clear these artifacts did not belong to the Semitic Arab imposters nor the Europeans and was not part of the Islamic dynasties.

Black people had established civilizations centuries prior to their arrival on the African continent. Many of these ancient cities like Tripoli, Cairo and Baghdad housed valuable treasures. The Europeans have stolen indigenous peoples cultural artifacts and our linkages with time is in white museums in Paris, London, Berlin, Moscow, Rome, Cyprus, Lisbon, Toronto, etc.. I know the great black archivist and curator Arthur Alfonso Schomburg probably is turning over in his grave at how we have allowed these cultural bandits to steal and house our history and tradition in defiled white institutions.

My next awakened, there was Nation of Islam minister in Durham, North Carolina named Minister Ray Muhammad (Minister Muhammad and I became good friends) he would teach quite often about the importance of submission and surrendering your will to do the will of God; he had a free willing spirit and was a graduate of a HBCU Texas Southern University in Houston, out of the Mid Atlantic Athletic Conference (MEAC) of course I have a common bond with all HBCU graduates and my feelings were no different towards Minister Muhammad. Minister Ray Muhammad would often state where you are right now is where you are supposed to be and no one arrives at these spaces and times of their own volition or by osmosis God brought you there (this was leading me towards my evolution into Free Thinking). He gave me a better understanding of Master Fard Muhammad and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

The biggest leap into becoming a Free Thinker, is to allow yourself to move beyond the confinement of dogmas, philosophy, theologies, political bias, etc., which taught me not to permit nor allow exclusivity in one school of thought to captivate my ideological imagination because this will erect and create artificial barriers, which could disallow the appreciating of the diversity and the expansiveness of knowledge and truth. Thus, you will also learn through practical experience and through life trials and error the value and ultimate value of principles that are better understood and received by others as positive examples when observed and lived and reflected as transparent ethics for everyone to see our lives as an open book (we should live our lives as living examples of universal good).

Free Thinkers are only loyal to their quest to discover the truth regardless of how painful the findings maybe, it is this clarion call that allows us to escape our natural attachment to familiar shared ideologies. But will always demonstrate the ability, as well as determination and willingness to look beyond those safe and comfort zones, which to objectively weigh all knowledge and thought on the larger scale of determining proof. With the Free Thinker’s mindset there are no safety nets that will stand in their way to determining the truth at all cost. Free Thinkers are ordinarily met with skepticism and suspiciousness because, we have been taught from early on to unquestionably accept doctrines and a worldviews that validates and support the status quo.

Yet, the Free Thinkers possess the courage to engage and upstage contrary perspectives to the popular version of the truth (you will pay a heavy personal cost, if you ever choose to become a Free Thinker) will cause them to be ridiculed, isolated, it could even cause more sinister acts. Once the Free Thinker has arrived at this lofty position, it will often lead them to revisited previous held beliefs and debunk them for more sound information and by this stage in their development, they would have learned to put all emotions to the a side—this makes the dismantling and reconstruction process much easier.

Moreover, admittedly most human beings who are learned and unlearned will never become a Free Thinker, because this is truly a journey less traveled and human beings find it easy to think inside the box, it makes associations more accommodating and it suffices the normalization of this world’s order in spite of injustice, corruption, inequalities, etc., Free Thinkers are revolutionary in their thought patterns—Buddha, Confucius, Zoroaster, Gandhi, Jesus, Mohammed, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Muhammad Ali. They had transcended (or was born) earthly expectations and had moved deep into the spiritual realm, a place that we all should look to obtain and arrive it is the only true gate to freedom.

This spiritual plateau opens you up to be used by the universal forces of good—honesty, self-denial, forgiveness and leads to the greatest expression of love, which is unconditional love. Free Think is teaching me to understand what love truly means on a much higher level and to forgive is the greatest act of human freedom, to relinquish and free others from our perceptions (in particular those whom we believed have transgressed against us) exonerate them that you might release yourself from an unjust self-affliction of imprisonment and bondage that continues to create cycles of pain and suffering in our conscience and sub-conscience minds. This quest often will immediately become conflictive with a world that was built on deception and "ism".

We must seek to look outside of this world that was constructed on disinformation and propaganda and have the uncanny ability to reconstruct a worldview that challenges the popular version of the truth in order to create a new societal and personal paradigm. The true Free Thinker innately either already has these skills of possessing the ability to reason and analyze and/or on the journey they are acquired and developed by way of the experience of various Paths in which the Creator or Supreme Being or whatever Higher expression that is the source of your spiritual inclinations and guide that factor into our lives. Let me not sound contradictory; spirituality is beyond the concepts of Supreme Beings or religious concepts and often functions as an independent variable outside of organized religious terminology and phraseology.

The inclination (of surrendering yourself) to walk your life in a Free Thinker’s space will be a deep evolutionary process for the human being (and was the biggest step that I ever made in my life), it will be more impactful than even the DNA that we inherited from our mothers and fathers (although this plays a factor into our development). However, this goes beyond the meeting of sperm and ova of human biological science. Truly a magnificent God/human and miraculous phenomenon that from an egg coming together with male sperm during conception (new life is formulated) that allows us to extend past our biological substances that was transferred in chromosomes and our nucleus and atomic make up produced an independent human being referred to as our offspring who has a mind and thoughts of their own.

Yes, their parents shared DNA will always be a part of their human essences. Let me stop here; I was a poor student in science, although I started out as a biology major in college. My Science major peers were serious and disciplined students and I wasn’t at that time in my life. So forgive me for recklessly trying to use a scientific analogy to paint a picture in my life. I was learning about concepts of microbiology and organic chemistry and physics. I woke up during that semester and said what the hell am I doing here and I immediately consulted by academic advisor and changed my major. I often wonder where my life would have been, if I had become a scientist or medical doctor; I know that in life nothing was coincidental and as quickly as that thought entered my brain, my Free Thinking immediately absolved those thoughts. I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing; anything else does not exist in my time and space.

Obama’s Birth Certificate Fraud – The Ten Little Indians

At this stage of the game with the evidence of document fraud now headed for congressional deliberation perhaps the most exemplary finding will be simply one of an important document fraudulently assembled and then placed on the web site and all the legal liabilities of such an act independent of the questions of Obama's legal right to have been POTUS.

Whether or not this next compels the state of Hawaii to release what is has - if it has anything at all in the way of a paper copy - remains to be seen and one can imagine legal delaying tactics that stretch into the future.

My interest in this has never really been to impeach a president. I was always more interested in the birth certificate scandal as it might relate to a president's "control file" or blackmailing file. Whether or not in the instance of Obama the "elephant in the living room" was a consideration in selecting him and grooming him early on the net effect of the dirty little secret was the same - it could be strategically used to steer him in certain directions most notably the "globalist" one by controlling how the mainstream media handled his various squirrely credentials. Like most presidents Obama appeared from the get go to be someone under "control" which explains his many flip-flops on policy as soon as he assumed office. It probably also explains Trumps flip-flops as well. No one rises high in office unless they can be blackmailed to a greater or lesser extent. At the end of this post there is a Corbett report video describing how the intelligence agencies - most especially the NSA now - hold the "keys to the kingdom."


Obama’s Birth Certificate Fraud – The Ten Little Indians


Karl Denninger, technology businessman and web expert:
“He explained that the type on the birth document showed evidence of “kerning,” the squeezing of letters into a line so that they don't intrude into adjacent letter spaces. Kerning is routine since the advent of word processors and computers, but impossible with a typewriter. “To refute this point you must come up with a typewriter that contains a flux capacitor and thus is capable of accurately predicting the future,” he said. “This document has been assembled by somebody on a computer.”
He contended “there’s only one way we’re going to get the truth – a forensic document examiner is going to have to go look at the certificate and authenticate it. The real one – not a printout.”

Paul Irey, typographer:
“To get his letters, the forger must have understood that he needed to copy the old typewriter styles,” he continued. “So the forger probably scanned a bunch of old birth certificates, without realizing that the letters in the old files were from different typewriter styles. That’s why the letters in the forged document do not match each other.”

Doug Vogt, expert on scanners and document-imaging software:
“Vogt said the curved surface on the left margin of the Obama birth certificate suggested the county employee who did the original scanning of the document did not take the individual page out of the binder.
“The result is that all the pages in that book display a parallax distorted image of the lines and type,” he said.
He claimed, however, that the information typed into the form does not curve like the printed text on the form itself.”
When the Obama birth certificate “forgery” comes to the public’s attention, Vogt predicted, “It will surpass all previous scandals including the Watergate scandal of the Nixon administration.”

Ron Polland, researcher:
“To prove to my satisfaction that the long-form birth certificate was forged, I had to understand precisely how each anomaly was created,” Polland said, “and then I had to be able to use these techniques to produce a forgery of my own. I had to put myself in the forger’s shoes to figure out what he was trying to accomplish and why he made it look the way he did.”

Mara Zebest, computer expert:
“My guess is that the creator of this document was inexperienced when it comes to a multitude of concepts in using Adobe software,” Zebest said. “Whoever forged the Obama birth certificate might have known enough to be dangerous, but not enough to know how to cover up their tracks.”
Zebest concluded that whoever forged the Obama birth certificate probably did most of the digital manipulation required to construct the document using the program Adobe Photoshop.”

Ivan Zatkovich, telecommunications consultant:
“It is possible to take a single layer PDF and inadvertently create multiple layers, without changing the image in any fashion. But that does not appear to be the case here. The multiple layers in the PDF document are a result of changes made to the image,” his report said.”

Tom Harrison, software designer:
“I’ve read a lot about the purported Obama birth certificate, but I have not seen anywhere (until now) the simplest proof that it is a forgery: the overwhelming evidence provided by the presence of two ‘white dot’ groups in the image,” he explained to WND”

Israel Hanukoglu, researcher:
Utilizing the software program Foxit Reader version 4.3.1, the Israel Science and Technology website examined the PDF file posted by the White House and found that the last digit of the birth certificate’s number, 61 10841, disappeared under 800-percent magnification. Also, the font of the last digit was different from the other digits.
“This is only one example,” the Israelis concluded after examining the birth certificate number. “Many more examples can be discovered by examining magnified document with full page view of the document.”
Conclusion: “In brief, this simple analysis using just a viewing software reveals that the PDF document has been altered by a graphics software.”

Tim Adams, Hawaii elections clerk:
“Senior officers in the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division told me on multiple occasions that no Hawaii long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Senator Obama in the Hawaii Department of Health,” Adams’ affidavit reads, “and there was no record that any such document had ever been on file in the Hawaii Department of Health or any other branch or department of the Hawaii government.”

Mike Zullo and Sheriff Joe Arpaio:
“As I said at the beginning of the investigation, the president can put all this to rest quite easily,” Arpaio said in 2012. “All he has to do is demand the Hawaii Department of Health release to the American public and to a panel of certified court-authorized forensic examiners all original 1961 paper, microfilm and computer birth records the Hawaii Department of Health has in its possession.”

As we learn in this Corbett Report, much of what the FBI has collected via wiretaps, video surveillance and entrapment on a huge number of politicians (Obama was raked in as soon as he ran for senator, Trump has been surveilled for years,) political appointees, journalists, lawyers, court justices including supreme court justices, etc. was ultimately non-actionable because of FISA violations, and a further problem was that FBI underlings were growing restive and off-the-record talkative about what they were discovering; so the meat of the program data and ongoing project itself was handed over to the NSA which is not subject to such legal niceties and restraints as we learned from Snowden.
The NSA holds the keys to the kingdom, and has enough covertly gathered information, video, phone conversations, etc. to fatally embarrass much of the government currently in place. Hastert and pedogate are threads that if vigorously pulled would lead to a great unraveling which is entirely by design. There is enough intelligence to compromise politicians keeping them compliant when necessary while still keeping the overall blackmail project humming along because busting it open now would be a national and international catastrophe.

"The Healing of Antony and Cleopatra"

Due to increasingly low Nile floods and other factors, the royal family had been phasing out operations in Egypt for many decades. The naval Battle of Actium that pitted Rome against Egypt was used to bring closure to one of the greatest dynasties and empires of all time, the Ptolemaic. Antony was far more experienced at war than the much younger Octavius. The historian Plutarch informs us that Mark Antony could have easily triumphed over Octavius and saved the day for Egypt. However, it was a match that Antony was ordered to throw. The Battle of Actium took place about the time of Julius Caesar's actual death, and his presence at the battle is witnessed through the Roman alias of Domitius Ahenobarbus, who presumed to counsel Cleopatra to head for the safety of Egypt. He then deserted Antony's side for that of Octavius and was inexplicably sent graciously on his way by Antony along with his entire entourage.

Alexander was said to have saved the life of Ptolemy by healing him of a poisonous arrow wound, which must have typically led to a certain death in those days. Significantly though, he was raised as if from the dead to live a long and illustrious life. Caesar had a long kingly career in mind for Antony as well, just not in Egypt. Antony, like his role model Ptolemy, was dutifully following orders from on High, but like Jonah on his way to Nineveh, Antony was not at all happy about his calling. Relinquishing his gay and sumptuous lifestyle as king of Egypt was a symbolic type of death for him, not to mention forfeiture of his cherished plebian playboy image in Rome. During his inglorious retreat back to Egypt, Antony ignored Cleopatra and sat alone and silent in a state of denial for three days, and as if in the belly of a whale.

Upon arriving in Egypt, Antony further withdrew with only the consolation of two close companions. At last, he forsook them as well and entered a type of mock tomb along the shore he erected near the Pharos lighthouse. The historian Plutarch wrote that he did this in remembrance of the cynical Greek philosopher Timon, who was renowned as a “hater and enemy of mankind,” which of course was (until then) the exact opposite of Antony’s nature. Plutarch continues to recite a speech supposedly given by Timon as follows: “I have a little plot of ground, and in it grows a fig-tree, on which many citizens have been pleased to hang themselves, and now, having resolved to build in that place, I wish to announce it publicly, that any of you who may be desirous may go and hang yourselves before I cut it down.”

Plutarch spelled out Antony’s fate as best a royal biographer could. It was required of Antony to forsake the dissolute life he loved in order to become king of the Jews, a people known for asceticism and exclusivity, and widely stigmatized in the Greco-Roman world as haters of humanity. In his regional identity of Herod, Antony was obliged to both “go over (submit) to Caesar (Augustus)” with all the forces committed to him and to endure being despised by the Jews as one unworthy of kingship in Israel. Only his wife Mariamne, daughter of the High Priest Hyrcanus II, was allowed to claim a full-blooded Hasmonean pedigree.

Regarding Cleopatra, Plutarch coyly states that "what really took place is known to no one." But we can discern that Cleopatra had even less reason to kill herself than Antony. While Antony sulked, Cleopatra busied herself with salvaging what she could from the fire-sale of Egypt. Unlike Antony’s, her transformation eliminated every form of confinement. She had now eclipsed her older sister Berenice IV in refinement, and took her place as the next Great Queen of the larger Empire. Upon the actual passing of Julius Caesar, she was answerable to no man, not even to the new Caesar Augustus and his request to use her likeness in Triumph. The Egyptian Cleopatra was not going to Rome in chains, but would move freely throughout royal dominions, and more immediately to Canaan as its own native queen. As Plutarch subtly relates in his “Life of Antony,” the rule of Israel was not sour grapes for Cleopatra, but was presented sweetly to her as an endearing little basket of plump and beauteous figs.

Roxane, the wife of Alexander the Great and mother of his heir Alexander IV, was reportedly poisoned 13 years after Alexander. Her Greco-Persian alter ego Barsine was said to have been murdered 14 years after Alexander. However, as the Egyptian Queen Berenice, Roxane, lived a long, full life and even survived Ptolemy I Soter. Consistent with her role model, Cleopatra was reportedly poisoned (by snake bite) 14 years after the death of Caesar. However, under the Roman alias Scribonia, she moved freely even among the Romans, and lived to see her daughter Julia (a.k.a. Cleopatra Selene) torment Octavius to no end.

Possible Psychic Attack During Intensely Vivid Dream

I've always had intense, colorful dreams. Even the occasional lucid one, though they are pretty scarce. I have followed the advice of keeping a journal about them, but I'm lazy and inconstant.

Last night I had one of those really vivid dreams, but there was something peculiar about it: I felt threatened by a force WITHIN the dream, which had started innocuously enough --I was Skyping with a friend of mine, and apparently there was a UFO or something outside my window (UFO dreams are somewhat common in my oneiric repertoire), and during the dream I mentioned how weird it was we were so enthralled in our conference I had not even bothered to witness the UFO.

Then unexpectedly the scene moves forward and I do witness the UFO, which is not the typical shape one would expect --it was more like a folded origami of indiscernible shape, white in color but with a faint bluish glow-- and then the dream progresses to the really disturbing part.

Before I know it I'm in a room with two 'men' which seem to be completely ordinary humans, except for one peculiar fact: They were in 'black and white' instead of full color (all my dreams are in color)like some secondary characters of Pleasantville!

The two figures were quickly moving towards me, saying something I don't remember in order to calm me down and assure me they were friendly, but I instinctively knew this was a lie. As it is often in my dreams, I tried to use my 'powers' (telekinesis and shit) to attack them, but these individuals were capable of performing what looked like 'magic passes' in order to deflect me.

I guess at one point I armed myself with bravado telling them they didn't scare me. One of them grabbed my right arm and started to twist it and turn it in ways that would have seriously injured, if not broken my physical arm, all while looking at me in the eyes, without saying anything --I don't think his stare was 'malignant' or evil, but his actions were certainly threatening and unwelcome.

This twisting of my 'dream arm' --and I guess I was semi-lucid-- didn't cause me any pain, and I told that to the entities, as a way to show them they were incapable of causing real harm to me. The black-and-white man didn't stop, and I woke up.

Wakefulness brought in a severe attack of anxiety. I felt like something or someone had tried to assault me. I turn on my night lamp and tried to calm my nerves, until finally normal exhaustion brought in an uneventful rest that lasted until the next morning.

I don't know what to make of it. I have sometimes toyed with the idea that my interest in the paranormal and my professional pursuits in the Fortean blogosphere have caused a flurry of unwanted attention on my persona, by forces which are not happy with my passion with such topics --likely a rationalization of why I'm having such a hard time surviving nowadays-- but now economic and labor mishaps have give in to something far more disquieting. Maybe.

In any case, is there anyone who could recommend me a few steps or preparations I could do in order to 'armor' myself from potential negative energies attempting to disrupt my dream journeys?

PS: In case you were wondering, the answer is NO. I did not find any bruises or marks in my arm, last time I checked...

The United States, Russia, China and North Korea

By Fahim A. Knight-El

President Donald Trump has put himself up against history in which he wants to approach the world from a new geopolitical mindset and desires to attempt to alter and change the international and global rules in which some of his global agenda is not well thought out, but he has patriots in place to fill in the gaps for him. Some may view my thoughts on Donald Trump and his New World Order agenda and One World Government agenda as being mere idealistic and lacks true pragmatism and I totally understand their unwillingness to consider an alternative perspective, but their apprehension will not prohibited the inevitable of what is going to take place in the world under Donald Trump. Perhaps Trump has not taking into account and doesn't realize that the United States is a declining world power and is steadily being replaced by China who has made serious inroads into solidifying its dominance in Asia and the Asian Pacific realm and has created a global economic prowess throughout the world. And their present day influence is unmatched by western governments including the United States of America (this truly represent a new era in world history). When the United States dollar thirty years ago begin to lose its international economic credibility as the world's reserve currency, it was a clear indication that America as a nation was transitioning into a global downward spiral politically, economically and socially and China based on default and world authority had taking that position and the United States is still in denial. The U.S. use to be the number one creditor nation in the world now, it stands as one of the number one debtor nations of the world.

They will get even weaker in next 10-20 years or less when North Korea; Kim Yong-Un is getting very close to acquiring intercontinental ballistics missiles and Iran is working undercover to acquire full nuclear capability in the very near future; this will bring a new international military paradigm and will dictate a new geopolitical relationship with South Korea in which North Korea will attempt to redraw the sovereign boarder lines and force a one united Korea (even if this means going to war) in which China will be an external instigator who will be backing North Korea in this unification of the two Koreas. The protectorate status that United States has historically offered South Korea would have to be reevaluated in lieu of North Korea acquiring the intercontinental ballistics missiles in which they could strike the United States from Asia, because of this potential predicted new political and military arrangement (or acquired military technology on North Korea part) it could prove be explosive, which could be the impetus for World War III.

North Korea has been really aggressive in their launching missile testing program and has been in defiance of international law and because of its relationship with China; this relationship has allowed them to be able to circumvent the United States embargoes and sanctions. They are in bed with one of the most powerful trade partners in the world, which is China and they don't feel the economic affect when it comes to goods and services being disrupted. The United States Government has systematically duped the American people and the entire globe in general, about the effectiveness of sanctions and embargoes. Some political critics who have alternative media sources are warning us of the global geopolitical implications and predictions that have been put on the chessboard, which is nothing short of alarming; but we have been so dummied down by the Talking Heads and social media and by their disinformation propaganda and we do not have a clue of the pending danger that lie ahead that faces all of humanity. Now, in the grand scheme of things in which, I will cover in the Blog’s content below, it isn't totally about the narrow scope of black and white in these globalization schemes, it is more about the evolvement of political unilateral thinking, that is more rooted in world domination; this is how the neo-alliances are being structured and orchestrated, which involves totally attempting to control the world's resources and impacting the thinking of humanity.

It is to early to make a definitive determination of what the United States international and foreign policy future will be, however, this much, we do know President Donald Trump lack of international diplomatic and foreign policy experience is going prove to be a liability in his decision making ability to steer the United States on a course that would be less antagonistic. He is confronted with how to contain Asian nationalism with China dominating influence in the Pacific realm this world power isn't going anywhere and will continue to expand its influence politically, economically and socially beyond its boarders. China knows that they possess no equals in their dominance over the global economic markets, which continues to allow them to transition into being the defacto world leader in obtaining raw materials from around the world, which no nation can compete economically with them in the modern context of turning those raw materials into manufactured tradable commodities and expanding markets. Although, China had entered into a high-tech production and manufacturing economy, which on the surface, it appears to be a page out of when the United States led the world during the industrial revolution. Where factories and raw materials were the economic model and we witnessed products being made inside the USA and when the U.S. economy was booming. But Alvin and Heidi Tofflers explain this best in their book titled, The Third Wave. Trump is systematically lying to the American people about where the world is right now and denying the economic trends and stages that led to the dismantling of American industrialism and contributed to the fall of America. Trump want the American people to believe that manufacturing is coming back to America let me be the bearer of bad news, it is not going to happen. Trump in his deception and rhetoric is attempting to lead the United States down a dark international path.

Trump and the United States have covertly declared war against China, the first step was him pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) international economic trade agreements. The United States is forcing these new world and global alliance, in which Russia, China and the United States are all rushing to set the template for the future outlook relative to globalization. These nations will redraw the lines of international waters and maritime jurisprudence this will automatically impact weaker and stronger nation's sovereignty. How we understood the geopolitical interest of nations yesterday will no longer be relevant in the new global arrangements. Some of the United States international motivations will be rooted in their concept of attempting to extend and expand white nationalism. Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson refused to politically distance themselves from Russian President Vladimir Putin, it is because they have a master plan of unifying the world of Eurasia and United States; those former ethnic nations that declared their sovereignty after the Cold War will be once again come under the threat of Russian military aggression and dictates.

Trump has a fixation on destroying Islam not just militant radical Islam, but all Islam (a war he cannot win). He is strategically seeking to wipe Islam off the world’s map. No Islamic nation will be deemed safe from this type of mindset and tyranny; today it is Iran, Yemen, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya and Iraq on the so-called Homeland Security terrorist list (the Center for Strategic Studies) and the Talking Heads and the political scientist, they are not going to convey the true agenda to the American people that these new alignments are rooted in the principles of global white nationalism. Putin of Russia has the Islamic problem in Central Asia and the former Russian protectorates in which President Richard Nixon warned the European world that Islam would pose the greatest threat to their world domination as they moved into the 21st Century.

Trump found a white allay in Putin who shares his political sentiments about extinguishing the potential rise of Islam and its continued spread in Europe and Asia. This alignment is valuable to Trump's globalization, One World Government and New World Order agenda in which the implications could be another war, if radical militant Islam is not halted. They will strategically pick Iran as a pasty, the war of words between the United States and Iran has been warming up even before Trump became U.S. commander-in-chief. Trump said he has served notice on Iran. Iran response to the threat was that they were a sovereign nation and did not need the permission from the U.S. to make political, economic and social decisions. Trump condemned the covert Iran deal that was initiated by the Obama administration as being a 'bad deal' in which Iran so-called agreed to cut back on its nuclear weapons program aspirations; many believed that this agreement in particular was also tied to monetary ransom money of 400 million dollars paid to Iran as good faith money to get American hostages released. Yet the United States had frozen and seized Iranian money and assets since 1979, when Imam Ayatollah Khomeini initiated the Iranian Revolution. This money has been frozen for over thirty-seven years.

I think Trump is going to rescind part of this Iran deal in order to provoke Iran, but this going to get interesting because Iran has purchased weapons from Russia, North Korea and China. Trump will find out that being the leader of the so-called free world and running the world is not reality television or his Apprentice show, it is a lot more comprehensive and complex, but the decisions he makes will globally impact the United States present and future course, I truly do not think he understands the magnitude and power he possesses that will impact the entire world. This is not a game. Now, North Korea under the Supreme Ruler Kim Jong-Un will continue to flex his will and military might in defiance of the United States and international law, by continuing to test his missiles program. China will keep this loose cannon in their back pocket, because his 20th century Communist style ruler-ship and dictatorship serves in the long term interest of China who is clandestinely fueling Kim Jong-Un in his rhetoric by taking a quasi laissez-faire approach and simultaneously putting billions of Chinese dollars behind North Korea, thus, making a joke out of United States sanctions and embargoes and trust me China is not concerned about North Korea's human rights record.

This invisible phenomenon (consisting of North Korea) creates an international balance of power without China themselves appearing as an international bully. The United States has become overly consumed with the so-called potential threat of Kim Jong-Un and it is this that is partially driving the United States in what appears to be an unorthodox relationship and partnership between Russia and the United States. Trump understands that in the new strategic international interest he is going to need Russia to halt China's aspirations towards expansion in the China South Sea and beyond, in particular the Philippines and Taiwan and other territories in the South China Sea. Theses disputes have been ongoing and will only become acerbated with these new international alignments that will potentially have to be executed with a weaker United Nations and rules of international law will be less binding. This has the potential to create an international powder keg for the west and the east.

It is not by coincidence that Trump has appointed and nominated all these ultra white nationalist mindsets to his administration. This is a new frontier in the recent modern international context, but taking right out of the playbook of the old white nationalism decree to once again impose race dominance into the international political equation (yesterday it was the Aryan race, the Anglo-Saxon race and today it's a hybrid etho-racial breaded in the United States that are seeking world racial supremacy). They seek to have no opposition to their and Trump’s agenda and these ultra white nationalist and white supremacy, they are not motivated by what is politically correct. Trump has multiply agendas, he unlike most white world leaders he see the handwriting on the wall and he is getting in front of the trouble waters and sees Russia as its great partner.

But Trump is no match for the likes of Vladmir Putin; Putin’s corruption is gangster style he has no loyally to anyone and will cross you in a heart beat; unknowing to Trump, Putin and the Russian government has been selling weapons and military technology to North Korea for decades and even under Kim Yong-Un, he is one of their number one international armament customers. These political dynamics are a triangle of deceptions between China, North Korea and Russia, which North Korea is being deemed America’s so-called number one enemy, but America’s new ally Russia is still supplying all types of military support to North Korea as I write this article in which China also is fully aware of this. What is the common denominator? These are old communist ideological alliances that still possess international value when it is necessary and politically expedient. Putin and Russia is also selling Iran and North Korea weapons and military technology before the United States imposed sanctions and embargoes, and after U.S. impose sanctions.

He will use the skillset of Rex Tillerson as a Seven Oil Sisters operative and agent (Tillerson is on multi payrolls: Russian, the CIA, Israeli lobby and AIPAC and the Rockefellers) and his ultimate agenda will be to instigate more conflicts in the Persian Gulf by using the CIA playbook to infuse propaganda and disinformation against Iran and sell this bullshit to the American people that Iran poses a national security threat, because they continue to desire to become a nuclear powered nation. If they could take back India and Pakistan nuclear capability they would because they believe people of color are irresponsible and to put nuclear weapons in the hands of a so-called radical and militant Islamic government like Iran will be troublesome to the western world, they see it as a threat to the white world and if Iran acquires nuclear weapons this will upset the white world domination and upstage the balance of power in the Middle East.

Russia has always played by its own international rules and they will not block Tillerson and Trump’s plans (they all are on the same team) to attack and invade Iran because there is oil on the table for Lukoil and Rosneft Russian state oil company and untold personal wealth for Trump, Putin, Tillerson and Exxonmobile in which the international alliances means nothing in lieu of the expansion of global white nationalism. Trump’s concept of patriotism is not tied to the United States sovereignty and him and Putin have declared allegiances to breakdown these artificial barriers, sovereignty and boarders will take on an entire new definition relative to international jurisprudence and they are military prepared to squash any national and international rebellions. Russian troops have been deeply rooted in America’s secret security forces (some of them former KGB agents) and was brought to United States by the ex-CIA director and President George H.W. Bush and the program was continued under Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. They have been secretly part of the United States Central Command and will replace the National Guards and FEMA when domestic disturbance arises inside the U.S. in particular when martial law is declared, it will be contained by Russian forces operating covertly in America (they were systematically chosen because of their ruthlessness and their non-allegiance to Americans citizenry.

No, entity will be allowed to impede their quest for the total completion of the One World Government agenda and the accumulation of wealth, these new global geopolitical strategies will make Iran expendable in the opening out of the United States-Eurasia expansionism and power dynamics. In this new power paradigm schemes, it is about moving the entire world into a new direction; thus, the prior NATO alliances in Western Europe will be forced to surrender some aspects of their previous concepts of what sovereignty meant to their so-called democracies. Trump and his administration do not desire to continue the type of international diplomacy that was still linked to an era in American history known as the Cold War. This time has passed and the international political arrangements have become obsolete and have outlived its purpose and usefulness in Trump’s worldview.

They will invoke fear into the psyche of the American people and potentially line the United States up again for another war just like in Afghanistan in 2001 and in Iraq in 2003, and we know that these were induced wars, which was rooted in international grand theft of Afghanistan poppy plant (or Heroin distribution in which the USSR fought a nine year war against the Mujahedeen over the Central Asian heroin trade and the Russians lost a bitter war) and taking over the second largest oil reserves in the world. George W. Bush and the Bush crime family, they wanted a part of this lucrative heroin trade and with the permission of Russia they agreed that the United States would use its military to fight in the rugged mountainous Afghan terrain to acquire a monopoly over the heroin dope trade coming out of Central Asia.

Russia after a nine year war didn't want anymore part of going back to Afghanistan. They also wanted more control over the Central Asia oil pipeline that involved running oil from the Black and Caspian Seas to Siberia. Now, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is a crook exemplar he will use his official capacity to start wars and simultaneously will be running so much international dope and oil from the around the world and funnel it to Exxonmobile and which to involve in the global theft of natural resources in Africa. They have all the puppet African leaders in their hip-pockets in which our continent will become once again a prime target to be further raped and exploited under this new international direction being put forth by Trump. Africa's colonial masters will come back to this wealthy continent with a vengeance. Tillerson is ruthlessness he didn't become an oil tycoon of ExxonMobil because of business niceties; he understands that business is a declaration of war.

Phony Antony and Foxy Cleopatra

We have seen that Mark Antony rose from relative obscurity to become Caesar’s most trusted friend and ally, even as Ptolemy became the right hand man of Alexander. Antony also played the distinctive role of Ptolemy during the staged murder and funeral of Julius Caesar. After the departure of Caesar, Antony confirmed his allotted typecasting by repeating the exploit of Ptolemy in seizing the land of Egypt. Like Ptolemy, Antony was not officially appointed to rule Egypt, but instead (and again after Ptolemy) only gave the impression that he had taken it. And in addition to Egypt, Antony also took Cleopatra as his consort and queen, even as Ptolemy had taken Roxane/Barsine as his consort and queen in Egypt after the “death” of Alexander.

Antony and Cleopatra were famously known for producing two sons and a daughter. Subsequently, the celebrity couple notified the world (through the press release known as “The Donations of Alexandria”) that the world itself would belong to these children. The eldest prince, Alexander Helios, was presented with Parthia, Armenia and Media (and all lands beyond). The younger son, Philadelphius, was deeded properties closer to Rome, i.e., Syria and Cilicia in Asia Minor. Libya and Cyrene, which had previously been bequeathed to Rome by former kings, was to become the exclusive possession of their daughter, Cleopatra Selene. Cleopatra’s son by the “late, great” Julius Caesar was confirmed as heir to the throne of Egypt.

The pronouncements of Antony and Cleopatra served two main purposes. First and foremost was the fulfillment Antony’s role as the Roman Ptolemy (I) Soter. In order to complete this typecasting it was necessary for Antony to adopt the sons of the “ascended” Caesar as Ptolemy had the sons of Alexander. The eldest son of Alexander had been conceived just prior to Alexander’s “death” in Babylon. As shown in Alexander the Great: Beyond the Divide, a second royal prince was born to Alexander afterwards, and this second son was arguably of superior pedigree than the first. His mother, Arsinoe, was the daughter of a Great King (Seleucus/Lysimachus), whereas Roxane/Barsine was not. Consistent with this, the second prince was called Ptolemy Epigone (“The Heir”) and his line emerged as dominant upon the death of the elder prince, Ptolemy II Philadelphius (the former Alexander IV). However, as genetic fate would have it, a male branch descending from Philadelphius later reclaimed the throne when the line of Epigone (through Antiochus III “the Great”) played out.

The eldest son of Antony and Cleopatra had received the illustrious name of Alexander Helios and was dressed up as the next King of Kings (to match his inheritance from Persia to the very ends of the Earth). To an aristocratic audience this could signal only one thing. The son of the still living Julius Caesar was being recognized as the eldest son and heir of Mark Antony, as well. There was nothing unusual about such an arrangement as it was a standard expression of primogeniture. In fact, just a few months later, Caesarion would be “reborn again” as the eldest son and heir of Octavius (Augustus) in Rome. This practice ensured that the succession was Caesarion’s to lose, and he could only lose it by failing to produce a qualified heir of his own.

Although the coveted name of Alexander (and the divine epithet of Helios to boot) was bestowed upon Caesarion, it was the younger prince that was called Philadelphius. This served to place the two princes more-or-less on equal footing with regard to royal precedent. The young Helios was betrothed to the “daughter of the king of Media,” which was a roundabout way of saying that Helios and Cleopatra’s daughter Selene were promised to each other. Helios (“The Sun”) and Selene (“The Moon”) were obviously intended to be an ideal dynastic match from the very start, which would not have been the case if they had literally been twins. Again, the eldest son Helios had priority with respect to royal mating, but not exclusivity. It would be Philadelphius that eventually produced an heir by Selene and not Caesarion/Helios.

The second purpose of the “Donations of Alexandria” was to simultaneously issue a boast and a provocation. It was not within Antony’s authority to designate his own sons as the new overlords of the Empire, but it was his duty to recognize Caesar’s sons as such. The “Donations of Alexandria” is a declaration that Caesar’s natural line was going to rule the world, and whether it was public knowledge or not. These great princes were born to dominate the world, both within Roman society and without. It was a statement of fact. Nevertheless, it could still be used as the provocation and justification necessary for Rome to act (under the leadership of the same royal family) and bring the Ptolemaic dynasty to its long-delayed conclusion.
