Colors Of The Rainbow : Black

©Renee 2012

In part 1 of this series on colors we will start with all things colored black. We will begin with a story, then go on.

Once upon a time in the land of make believe there was a castle. It was called Black Rock castle. It’s name was decided by the family of  Schwartz- Black-Mela due to the large, onyx colored boulders in the area. It was a rich but dreary place complete with beautiful decor and gardens but a lot of very bored royals lived inside. Who were they ? I am not sure, but we can look around for possibilities….

Schwartz is German for BLACK.  Petra or Peter means stone, or rock. Black is also spelled BLAKE as well.

Petra ? Like Petraeus ?

George Soros (play /ˈsɔrs/ or /ˈsɔrəs/;[2] Hungarian: Soros György; Hungarian: [ˈʃoroʃ]; born August 12, 1930, as Schwartz György)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tivadar_Soros

Tivadar Soros (Esperanto: Teodoro Ŝvarc; 1894–1968) was a Hungarian lawyer, author and editor. He is perhaps best known for being the father of businessman and investor, George Soros.

Soros fought in World War I and spent years in a prison camp in Siberia before escaping. He founded the Esperanto literary magazine Literatura Mondo (Literary World) in 1922 and edited it until 1924. He wrote the short novel Modernaj Robinzonoj (Modern Robinsons) (1923), and Maskerado ĉirkaŭ la morto (Masquerade (dance) around death), published 1965, an autobiographical novel about his experience during the Nazi occupation of Budapest, Hungary. Maskerado has been translated into English, Russian, German, Turkish, and Hungarian. He also wrote under the name Teo Melas (“Melas” is Greek for “black”, just as “schwarz” is in German). During the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, he and his wife escaped to the United States, where he lived in New York until his death in 1968.

We will look more now in comments.

    Charles Diel

    Charles, the first of our line to settle in Canada, was born in Ste. Colombe, France in 1652. He arrived in New France, or Canada, in 1665 with the Carignan Regiment, Company Lafouille. The regiment was sent to protect settlers from the Iriquois Indians. There were also many assumptions made about why Charles at 13 years of age was part of an infantry regiment. It was said that he could have been used as a laborer, an apprentice of some kind, a courier, or as a drummer. Others said he was a cadet who was expected to become a combat-hardened officer by the age of eighteen. He definitely was not a cadet. It is possible that he could have played any of the other roles, but the question remains as to why he was there at that young age. Since his marriage contract dated 1676 states that his parents were already dead at that time, the possibility that Charles might have been an orphan at the time of his recruitment was considered but never proven.

    Monsignor Yelle also propagated the false notion that Charles’ assumed brother, Guillaume, arrived with the regiment and died shortly after from illness contracted during the voyage from France. Charles’ dit name, or military alias, was Le Petit Breton; and, that was enough evidence to prove that Guillaume Le Breton of La Frediere Company was the older brother of Charles Le Petit Breton. This was proven to be false, but only after wrongly convincing many people that Charles and Guillaume Le Breton were brothers.

    Charles did arrive with the Carignan Regiment at the age of thirteen in 1665. He was in a group known as supernumeraries who might have had a military obligation but were sent rather to provide skills and labor to stimulate the economy and to populate the colony. The regiment was to serve the dual purpose of subduing the Iroquois as well as providing permanent settlers in New France. The Carignan campaign was a success, and peace with the Iroquois was reached in 1667. In 1668, when Charles was still only sixteen years old, the bulk of the regiment left Canada. However, King Louis gave land grants to a number of Carignan officers who agreed to stay in Canada and help develop the country. The officers then convinced some of their soldiers to stay in Canada to improve a portion of the land grant which the soldier would own after a three year tenancy. The land so granted was doled out in locations that would serve as a line of defense when occupied by the ex-soldiers who formed a kind of militia. Charles is listed as one of the 400 or so soldiers who stayed, but his land concession came from the Jesuits and not from a Carignan officer.

    It was on such a tract of land “of 4 by 20 arpents” in LaPrairie near Montreal that Charles settled when he married Marie Anne Picard on 31 August 1676 in Montreal. She was the daughter of a “Pioneer”, Hughes Picard. After Anne died in 1696 or 1697, Charles married Francoise Simon dit Lapointe on 8 May 1702.

    Marie Anne Picard

    Marie Anne Picard was born in Montreal on 3 November 1663. She was the daughter of Jacques Hughes Picard dit LaFortune and Marie Antoinette Liercourt. At the age of thirteen, she married Charles Diel in Montreal on 31 August 1676. She had her first of ten children in 1678 when she was not yet 15 and died in Laprairie on 4 February 1696 or 97 at the age of 33 or 34 years. She evidently had two sisters, Michelle and Marguerite. Michelle married Mathieu Gervais on the same day that Marie married Charles, and Marguerite married Jean Pare in 1681.

    Francoise Simon dit Lapointe

    Francoise Simon dit Lapointe, widow of Etienne Godeau, married Charles Diel in Montreal on 8 May 1702. She was born in Ile de Montreal on 18 January 1671 and married Etienne Godeau on 03 December 1694?. She was buried 6 March 1757 in Saint Anne de Bell, Quebec. She had at least two children with Charles Diel, Jean Francois and Marie Francoise.

    Children of Charles Diel and Anne Picard:

    Marie Marguerite was born 18 APR 1678 in Monreal and died 26 JUL 1715 in Hotel-Dieu, Montreal. She married Pierre Perras 18 NOV 1696 in Laprairie. After Pierre’s death, 1 AUG 1699, she married Julien Baritau dit Lamarche in Laprairie on 13 May 1700. Marie died in the Hotel-Dieu, Montreal on 26 JUL 1715. Julien was found dead on the edge of the St-Lambert River in Laprairie on 14 JUL 1736; he had been married to Catherine Suprenant since April 12, 1717.

    NOTE: This was reported by the University of Montreal Program of Research in Demographic History. A note was added that there was confusion concerning Marie Marguerite’s date of marriage to Julien, but that the associated contract of 11 MAY 1700 agreed with the time when she was widowed from Pierre Perras, 1 AUG 1699. Her date of marriage to Bariteau is elsewhere shown to be 13 MAY 1699.

    Michel Langlois’ Dictionnaire Biographique des Ancetres Quebecois states that there were ten children and that Charles was providing for the Perras and Bory children in 1716. This indicates that Bariteau would have rejected the Perras children after Marie Marguerite died in 1715.

    If two sisters married Perras and Bariteau rather than one woman, that would account for the tenth child of Charles and Anne Picard. Some say another Marie was born in 1680, possibly a twin of Pierre, who married Baritault.

    Pierre, was born 24 NOV 1680 in Montreal. (Marie’s twin?) He was captured by the Iroqouis when he was fifteen years old. He lived with them thereafter, eventually forgetting the French language.

    Jacques was born 2 MAR 1683 in Laprairie. Nothing more is known.

    Marie Anne was born 7 MAY 1684 in Laprairie; she died seven months later on 9 DEC 1684. Charles and Pierre Lefebvre, Marie Anne’s godfather, departed on a fur-trading voyage to the outaouais country and were away at the time of Marie Anne’s death.

    Marie Anne was born in 1685 and died 15 MAY 1708. She married Francois Bory dit Grandmaisson 27 October 1704. They had one or more daughters who died in infancy. Francois Bory died in “en filibust” or an attack on the English in 1711 which is why Charles was caring for their children in 1715.

    Charles was born 5 August 1688 in Laprairie and married Jeanne Boyer on 17 February 1716. More to follow on Charles.

    Marguerite was born 14 JUN 1691 in Laprairie. She married Jean Lacombe 03 FEB 1711. There must have been another given name to distinguish her from her sister, Marie Marguerite above.

    Jacques was born 02 February 1693 in Laprairie and married Marie Anne Crepin on 13 July 1715. Jacques had a son, born 25 DEC 1713, out of wedlock with Marie Duclos before his marriage to Anne Crepin. Jacques refused in court to marry Marie Duclos so the boy was named Jacques Duclos. Jacques and Marie Anne Crepin also had a son named Jacques 26 September 1721.

    Catherine, the last child, was born 9 August 1695 and died the following day.

    *Picard, Pecor(e), Destroismaisons, Threehouse NOTE*

    aka Princess FaDILLA of Egypt:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominique-France_Picard
    Dominique-France Loeb Picard (born 23 November 1948),[1] also called Princess Fadila of Egypt, is the ex-wife of Fuad II, former King of Egypt and the Sudan.

    She was born to a Jewish family in Paris as the daughter of Robert Loeb and his wife Paule Madeleine Picard. When a student of 29 she wrote her doctoral thesis at the Sorbonne on the Psychology of Women in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights.[2]

    [edit] Engagement and marriageAt Monaco’s royal palace, she met and began her courtship with HM King Fuad II, whom she married on 16 April 1976 in Monaco. Although she married Fuad II after the loss of his throne, she was still styled Her Majesty Queen Fadila of Egypt by monarchists.[3] The marriage ended in divorce in 1996, and since 1999 she is styled Her Royal Highness Princess Fadila of Egypt.[4]

    [edit] Divorce and financial difficultiesThe marriage was dissolved in 2008 with the style and title removed by Fuad. In 2002, her Paris apartment was taken from her due to her outstanding debts.[5]

      Kuhn, Loeb & Co. was a bulge bracket, investment bank founded in 1867 by Abraham Kuhn[1] and Solomon Loeb. Under the leadership of Jacob H. Schiff, it grew to be one of the most influential investment banks in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, financing America’s expanding railways and growth companies, including Western Union and Westinghouse, and thereby becoming the principal rival of J.P. Morgan & Co. In the years following Schiff’s death in 1920, the firm was led by Otto Kahn and Felix Warburg, men who had already solidified their roles as Schiff’s able successors. However, the firm’s fortunes began to fade following World War II, when it failed to keep pace with a rapidly changing investment banking industry, where Kuhn, Loeb’s old-world, genteel ways, did not seem to fit; the days of the gentleman-banker had passed. The firm lost its independence in 1977 when it merged with Lehman Brothers, to create Lehman Brothers, Kuhn, Loeb Inc. The combined firm was itself acquired in 1984 by American Express, forming Shearson Lehman/American Express and with that, the Kuhn, Loeb name was lost forever. Kuhn Loeb is considered to be one of the last Gentlemen Investment houses.

      Kuhn, Loeb & Co. was an investment bank located in New York City. It was founded in 1867, by Abraham Kuhn and Solomon Loeb. Kuhn and Loeb had created a successful merchandising business in Cincinnati, Ohio, when they decided to move east, to New York, to take advantage of the country’s burgeoning economic expansion. Company records indicate that by the time Kuhn and Loeb established their partnership, they were able to capitalize it at $500,000. On January 1, 1875, Jacob Schiff (1847-1920), Solomon Loeb’s son-in-law, joined the firm and began a remarkable reign as its leader, during which it grew to be the second most prestigious investment bank in the United States, behind J. Pierpont Morgan’s, J.P. Morgan & Co.

      Jacob SchiffThe firm grew to prominence during the railroad era in the United States. Much like the internet boom which struck America in the 1990s, Americans saw great hope and promise in the railroad era and investors saw great opportunities to profit. Kuhn, Loeb, like all investment banks, brought capital together with commercial opportunity. Its first meaningful entry into railroad financing was in 1877 when it raised funds for the Chicago and North Western Railroad, and several years later, in 1881, for the Pennsylvania Railroad and the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad.

      Schiff was instrumental in the reorganization of the Union Pacific in 1897, helping to place the firm on sound financial footing. In 1901, with Kuhn, Loeb’s financial support, E. H. Harriman famously battled James Jerome Hill and J.P. Morgan to acquire control of the Northern Pacific Railroad.

      The firm was long associated with many of America’s emerging industrial giants, providing financial backing for Westinghouse and Western Union, as well as innovative consumer giants like the Polaroid Corporation. The firm also enjoyed respect as a trusted adviser overseas, providing services to numerous foreign governments, including the governments of Austria, Finland, Mexico and Venezuela.

      It also acted as the leading investment house for John D. Rockefeller, through the guidance of his investment adviser, Frederick T. Gates. Rockefeller invested in many syndicates with the bank, including major stakes in the prominent railroad companies, as well as contributing to its consolidation of the Chicago meatpackers, which resulted in the formation of a leading trust. Overseas ventures that Rockefeller also got involved with included the bank’s loans to the Chinese and Imperial Japanese governments.

      The firm also joined a partnership with Rockefeller in 1911 to gain control of the Equitable Trust Company, which was later to merge and become the Chase Bank.[2]

      Famous partners of the firm included Otto Kahn, Paul Warburg, Felix Warburg, Mortimer Schiff, Benjamin Buttenwieser, Lewis Strauss, Sigmund Warburg, founder of S.G. Warburg.

      Otto KahnIn its early years, intermarriage among the German-Jewish elite was common. Consequently, the partners of Kuhn, Loeb were closely related by blood and marriage to the partners of J & W Seligman, Speyer & Co., Goldman, Sachs & Co., Lehman Brothers and other prominent German-Jewish firms. Prior to the Second World War, a particularly close relationship existed between the partners of Kuhn, Loeb and M. M. Warburg & Co. of Hamburg, Germany, through Paul and Felix, who were Kuhn, Loeb partners. Later on, following World War II, their cousin Sigmund Warburg, would briefly continue this relationship as a partner and Executive Director of the firm.

      The firm’s fortunes began to fade in the years following World War II. Wall Street was changing and shifting away from relationship banking. Kuhn, Loeb’s world of gentlemen bankers was gradually being replaced by a more aggressive, transaction-oriented Wall Street, with underwriters entering the trenches and selling securities directly to the public, territory Kuhn, Loeb stubbornly refused to enter. When asked how many people worked at Kuhn, Loeb, one partner famously quipped, “about half”. Such was life at Kuhn, Loeb, resting on its laurels, while Wall Street passed it by.

      In 1977, facing a capital crisis, the firm succumbed and merged with Lehman Brothers, to form Lehman Brothers, Kuhn, Loeb Inc. Internationally, the merged firms were known as Kuhn Loeb Lehman Brothers Inc., in recognition of the fact that Kuhn Loeb’s international reputation was superior to that of Lehman’s.

      The merger did not, however, prove to be the panacea to what ailed Kuhn, Loeb. Indeed, as detailed more closely in the Lehman Brothers history, a period of bitter internal strife ended in 1984 when the firm sold itself to Shearson/American Express, itself the product of a recent merger between American Express and Sandy Weill’s, Shearson Loeb Rhoades. The combined firms then dropped the Kuhn, Loeb name and became known as Shearson Lehman/American Express, ending Kuhn, Loeb’s almost 120 years on Wall Street.

      Later, the combined firm purchased disgraced E.F. Hutton, becoming Shearson Lehman Hutton. Ultimately, however, American Express could not make the pieces of its financial services supermarket work and the firm sold its retail brokerage operations to Primerica in 1993 and in 1994 spun off a beleaguered Lehman Brothers as Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., in an initial public offering.

      Although the Kuhn, Loeb name is likely lost forever, the firm’s legacy is not. Former Kuhn, Loeb employees remain in senior positions throughout Wall Street and until recently, at Lehman Brothers. Vestiges of the firm survived in the form of Lehman Brothers’ extensive fixed income capabilities, including many of their bond indices, such as the Government/Credit index. This index, originally birthed in 1973 by Kuhn, Loeb, as the Government/Corporate index was among the first generation of bond index data to measure the fixed income market. It is still the preeminent benchmark in its class.

        http://www.kurdistanica.com/?q=node/104
        The followers of the Yezidi religion, who have variously referred to themselves also as the Yazidi, Yazdâni, Izadi, and Dasna’i, have often been pejoratively referred to by outsiders as “devil worshippers.” They constitute less than 5% of the Kurdish population. At present they live in fragmented pockets, primarily in northwest and northeast Syria, the Caucasus, southeast Turkey, in the Jabal Sanjâr highlands on the Iraqi-Syrian border, and regions north of the Iraqi city of Mosul.

        As a branch of the Cult of Angels, Yezidism places a special emphasis on the angels. The name Yezidi is derived from the Old and Middle Iranic term yazata or yezad, for ,1 angel,” rendering it to mean “angelicans.” Among these angels, the Yezidis include also Lucifer, who is referred to as Malak Tâwus (“Peacock Angel”). Far from being the prince of darkness and evil, Lucifer is of the same nature as other archangels, albeit with far more authority and power over worldly affairs. In fact, it is Malak Tâwus who creates the material world using the dismembered pieces of the original cosmic egg, or pearl, in which the Spirit once resided.

        Despite the publication of (reportedly) all major Yezidi religious scriptures, and the availability of their translations, the most basic questions regarding the Yezidi cosmogony are left to speculation. For example, it is left to deductive reasoning to figure out in which epoch of the universal life Lucifer belongs, or what his exact station is. He naturally cannot be the same as the Universal Spirit, as the Spirit does not enter into the act of creation. In Yârsânism and Alevism it is Khâwandagâr, the “Lord God,” who as the first avatar of the Spirit undertakes the task of Sâjnâri-world genesis. It is tempting to concluded that Lucifer replaces Khâwandagâr himself in the Yezidi cosmogony. Two Yezidi holy scriptures, Jilwa and Mes’haf, both discussed later, substantiate this conclusion. The following translations of these texts are adopted almost entirely from Guest (1987). Jilwa reads, “Malak Tâwus existed before all creatures,” and “1 (Malak Tâwus) was, and am now, and will continue unto eternity, ruling over all creatures …. Neither is there any place void of me where i am not present. Every Epoch has an Avatar, and this by my counsel. Every generation changes with the Chief of this world, so that each one of the chiefs in his turn and cycle fulfills his charge. The other angels may not interfere in my deeds and work: Whatsoever I determine, that is.” The implied attributes are all those of Khâwandagâr in Yârsânism and Alevism. Mes’haf asserts> “In the beginning God [which must mean the Universal Spirit] created the White Pearl out of his most precious Essence; and He created a bird named Anfar. And he placed the pearl upon its back, and dwelt thereon forty thousand years. On the first day [of Creation], Sunday, He created an angel named ‘Azâzil, which is Malak Tâwus, the chief of all….” Mes’haf goes on to name six other angels, each created in the following days of this first week of creation in the First Epoch. The names of these angels closely match those of Yârsânism and Alevism, as given in Table 6. The problem is that there are seven rather than six avatars, leaving out, therefore, the Spirit himself from the world affairs. This is, however, the result of the later corruption of the original cosmogony, perhaps under Judeo-Christian influence. The rest of the opening chapter of the Mes’haf provides a version of human origin close to the Judeo-Christian story of Adam and Eve, and their interaction with Satan, even though Satan, here Lucifer, serves them only as an honest council…

        http://thebeakspeaks.blogspot.com/2007/04/what-does-cult-of-angels-means-in.html
        It is important to know the members of the Cult of Angels have been persecuted throughout their history. A link provided by Kuhnkat provides a series of massacres.
        Less well known is the Yezidi fought along side the Armenians durring the era of genocide. The Yezidi risked their lives to rescue Armenians.

        It is important to note that the Kurds were the henchmen of the Armenian/Assyrian genocide. They had zero ethnic loyalties to Yezidi and have participated in the genocide of the Yezidi who are fellow Kurds. Muslim Kurds have often exterminated other members of the Cult of Angels irrespective of if the victims were Kurds or Turks.

        Historically Kurds and Persians were among the most tolerant people on the planet.
        Jewish and later Christian Kurds lived in peace until some converted to Islam. Amil will tell you with 100% accuracy that Persians have a history of religious toleration. The decline of tolerance in Persia accompanies the invasion of Islam.

        The Alawites need Israel to divert attention from the fact that they are not Muslims.
        If and when Israel falls the Alawites dominion over Syria will be highlighted. Much of their alliance with the Mullahocracy of Iran and arming Hezbollah and the Iraqi terrorists is to keep attention off the aparthied Alawite hegemony in the guise of the far left Marxist/Socialist Baath party.

        Europe is much like Persia in that its benign toleration will be its ultimate death sentence. In Marxist brain impaired Europe the only evils are America and Israel. The petty mindless Marxist brain rot of the inteligensia and moral gymnastics have paved the way for their demise

        The question is if the Yezidi are Satanists than the actions of those who commited genocide against them speak louder than their apostasy. It would seem that pointless
        genocide based on relgious differences is not something Satanists agree with. They would certainly be superior to their Islamic detractors and to the Cult of Marxist Class genocide.

        Another problem with the Marxist far left is their anti history. The slaughter and abuses of non- Muslims are not discussed. Typical of this Marxist arrogance is the Duck who has never read a single Bat Yeor book but wants her silenced. Jews, Christians, Hindus and others who have been abused by Islam need to be silenced, their stories conflict with the Commie play book.

        Maybe in one thousand years there will be a Marxist parody of the Cult of Angels in Europe. They will be secretive and nominally Muslim while venerating Marx, Lennin, Stalin, Pol Pot and Noam Chimpanzee.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_F._Johnson
    George Francis Johnson was born in Milford, Massachusetts on October 14, 1857 to Francis A. Johnson and Sarah Jane (Aldrich) Johnson. His siblings were Oscar, C. Fred Johnson, Harry L., and Charlotte. In 1881, after 10 years of experience in the shoe and boot-making factories in his home state, he was hired as the supervisor of a work crew in a section of a shoe factory in Binghamton, New York. Nine years later he became superintendent of that company’s new plant, which was located in the community of Lestershire, New York, and said to be the largest factory of its kind in the entire world.

    [edit] Endicott-Johnson Co. & The Square DealIn 1899, Johnson became co-owner of the business, which was renamed the Endicott-Johnson Co. Under his presidency, the company grew to eight factories in Broome County, New York, employing about 10,000. Endicott-Johnson was the first company in the shoe industry to introduce the 8-hour workday, 40-hour workweek, and comprehensive medical care. Despite paying some of the highest wages in the industry, Endicott-Johnson was consistently profitable.

    Although Johnson oversaw many different factories throughout the Susquehanna Valley of Broome County, he attracted many immigrant workers to the area by offering to build homes. Although the name Johnson was given to the city in NY where George F. arrived, the city of Endicott better reflects his intimate vision for a prosperous community. This is because Johnson himself developed nearly all of the residential neighborhoods in Endicott, selling houses to the workers at a cost to himself of $1000 each.

    Until he died in 1948, Johnson saw to it that Endicott-Johnson employees received a range of benefits that were not typically offered by most employers at the time. The company also created parks (containing swimming pools and carousels that anyone could ride for free), medical facilities, restaurants, libraries, and recreational facilities—all designed to provide high quality goods and services to the employees for free or at a low cost.

    The Square Deal Towns of Endicott & Johnson City have set the precedent of eager industrial labor habits for Broome County. The humming EJ factories and neighborhoods were the origins of International Business Machines. Endicott and Johnson City were where George F. Johnson revolutionized the pay system and improved relationships between capital and labor.

    Cilla Black OBE (born Priscilla Maria Veronica White, 27 May 1943) is an English singer, actress, entertainer and media personality. She began her career as a singer in 1963, and is most famous in the UK for her singles “Anyone Who Had a Heart” (1964) and “You’re My World” (1964), both of which reached number one. Black had eleven Top Ten hits on the British charts between 1964 and 1971. In May 2010, new research published by BBC Radio 2 claimed that her version of “Anyone Who Had a Heart” was the UK’s biggest selling single by a female artist in the 1960s.[1] “You’re My World” was also a modest hit in the United States, peaking at No.26 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    After a successful recording career in the 1960s and early 1970s, and a brief time as a comedy actress in the 1970s, Black became a prominent television presenter in the 1980s and 1990s.

    In 2013, Black will celebrate 50 years in showbusiness. In April 2012, as a prelude to this anniversary, EMI (the record label which launched her career in 1963) released Completely Cilla: 1963-1973 – a 5CD set containing 139 recordings (all produced by George Martin) and a bonus DVD of rare BBC TV music performances.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Sheriff_of_Warwickshire
        The High Sheriff is the oldest secular office under the Crown. Formerly the High Sheriff was the principal law enforcement officer in the county but over the centuries most of the responsibilities associated with the post have been transferred elsewhere or are now defunct, so that its functions are now largely ceremonial. The High Sheriff changes every March.

        For a period prior to the middle of the 16th century the High Sheriff of Warwickshire was also the High Sheriff of Leicestershire.

    The Case of George Soros

    Early life

    George Soros was born in Hungary on August 12, 1930. According to his biography Soros was taught Esperanto language by his father who was a lawyer and doctor. It is important to notice that according to some sources Tivandar Soros [alias Teodoro Schwartz alias Teo Melas (search)] was a POW in Bolshevik Gulag in Siberia after the 1917 October Revolution as he probably somewhat participated in the opposition, but the sources are unclear about that. [Of course this would open a possibility to recruit such people – and cases have been known……]

    George Soros as a young man traded currencies on the black market during the Nazi occupation of Hungary. Soros lived there until 1946 when he left the country as it was under the Soviet occupation and he, without money and at age of 16, ended up in London, U.K. in 1947. According to claims Soros has made, he left his native Hungary because of the Soviet occupation.

    Well, well, well …….

    Simply said this must be explained to the American public because these facts are not possible to be true under any normal circumstances. Soros admits to trade currencies on black market but that was always punishable by death during the Nazi era in any occupied country. Also what is important is the allegation that Soros family collaborated with the Hungarian Nazi regime during the WW2.

    That would make the whole family [no doubt] a target of reprisals from the victims of the Nazi regime and the occupying Soviet forces would treat Soros’s family very harshly [most of the high level Nazi collaborators were hanged]. The only way out of this would be an agreement to co-operate with the GRU Soviet [Russian] military intelligence or perhaps also with the NKVD [later KGB] espionage.

    Young George was able to leave the country, he was able to make it through countless Red Army check points, without a passport that would be valid, without a Soviet approved permit to leave the country, without money and without any outside help.

    Soros was not only able to “pass through” these check points but he was able to cross the border to Austria, where the Red Army was also present at the time, and Soros was able to get through the Red Army check points in Austria and “defect” to the West all the way to London, U.K. Un-parallel achievement and because of my personal experiences as a political refugee who had to go through some difficulties escaping the communist oppression, I know what I’m talking about.

    I don’t know how this Soros’s “life story” sounds to anybody but this is impossible to happen unless George had a permit and proper Soviet approved passport because if he was so brave to try to run these check points he would’ve been shot dead on a spot by the communists.

    His stay in the U.K. and his 1947 enrolment to London School of Economics, and to be able financially support himself during that time, with no mentioned help or financial backing, and to be able to graduate in 1952 at that young age, this all gives me chills where I missed my own opportunities and how come I wasn’t able to be so “fortunate” and to have such “miraculous achievements” in my life.

    Soros, after a brief period of working in financial services in U.K., was able to start his own financial institution. What an achievement again. No money at all from the beginning and after just a few years he’s got his own financial company. That requires starting capital, these ventures don’t come easy, these are not hamburger stands but virtual banks with lot of money inside – who supplied the money to Soros or has he won a huge jackpot in Britain ?

    Please keep reading, it only gets thicker and better.

    Soros and the Perestroika fraud

    In the previous Weekly Opinion I was able to present facts about the one Frantisek Janouch, a communist and also a financial backer of the leading “anti-communist dissidents” in Czechoslovakia who were able [by some un-known miracle] to set up an anti-communist [pretended] group called Charter 77. Well, George Soros was the main financial contributor to Charter 77 and also to the Polish Labor Union called Solidarity.

    In case of Charter 77 Janouch claims that Soros supplied 1/3 of the total amount of money this Charter 77 Foundation in Stockholm was sending to the communist Czechoslovakia, to Havel and company.

    According to my sources the sum of money that was coming to Czechoslovakia, from the Charter 77 Foundation, was gradually rising since the 1978-79 period.

    From the first 107,594 Swedish Crowns in 1978 it was over half a million in 1989. [I don’t have the dollar exchange rate from that time but to illustrate how much money it was in the communist Czechoslovakia these amounts were astronomical – let’s say that the CZ Crown was about 0.20 Swedish Crown so it would be about 538 Thousand Czechoslovak Crowns the first year and over 2.5 million CZ Crowns in 1989 – for the people in the leadership of Charter 77 that was a lot of money].

    Their secret local support is of course still secret the same way as the STB communist police dossiers of the leading members of the Charter 77 [Havel and company].

    We also have to analyze the money flow and where they were coming from. Since Janouch claims that Soros was the biggest contributor to Charter 77 [and according to some sources Soros supplied all together $7 million to Charter 77 and Solidarity in Poland], but Janouch also stated that Soros only supplied one third of the total amount.

    Where were the remaining money coming from ?

    According to my phone conversation with the wife of former political prisoner and later [for 4 months] Deputy Czech Interior Minister, Mr. Miroslav Dolejsi [his analysis is worth reading], Mr. Dolejsi received some secret documents from Sweden that supposedly corroborated that Janouch’s Charter 77 Foundation was a GRU-KGB operation.

    It is no secret that Mr. Dolejsi was attacked and beaten by some thugs who possibly worked for the CZ secret services and Mr. Dolejsi’s house was burglarized and these documents were stolen.

    There are other people who also allege that the money were coming directly from Moscow. Well, since Janouch was a communist and possible GRU agent, this is no surprise at all.

    Swartz(y)
    BLACK
    Swartz ?

    Schwarzkopf was born Aug. 24, 1934, in Trenton, N.J., where his father, Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., founder and commander of the New Jersey State Police, was then leading the investigation of the Lindbergh kidnap case. That investigation ended with the arrest and 1936 execution of German-born carpenter Richard Hauptmann for murdering famed aviator Charles Lindbergh’s infant son.
    The elder Schwarzkopf was named Herbert, but when the son was asked what his “H” stood for, he would reply, “H.”
    As a teenager Norman accompanied his father to Iran, where the elder Schwarzkopf trained the Iran’s national police force and was an adviser to Reza Pahlavi, the young Shah of Iran.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barton_W._Stone
    Barton Warren Stone (December 24, 1772-November 9, 1844) was an important preacher during the Second Great Awakening of the early 19th century. He was first ordained a Presbyterian minister, then was expelled from the church after the Cane Ridge, Kentucky revival for his stated beliefs in faith as the sole prerequisite for salvation. He became allied with Alexander Campbell, and formed the Restoration Movement. His followers were first called “New Lights” and “Stoneites”. Later he and Campbell tried to bring denominations together that relied solely on the Scriptures.

    In 1803 Stone and others with the same theology formed the Springfield Presbytery. After re-examination, he and others in the presbytery felt compelled to dissolve the organization, believing that it was still too close to “Romanization” and creating a human institution, rather than coming together in the way suggested by Scriptures. This led to the famous “Last Will and Testament of The Springfield Presbytery.” From 1819-1834, he and his family lived in Georgetown, Kentucky. He purchased land in Morgan County, Illinois and in 1834 moved there to Jacksonville, in part because of his opposition to slavery, which was prevalent in Kentucky.

    In 1832 in Kentucky, Stone met with Alexander Campbell, a meeting that led to the partial unification of the “Christian” (Stone) movement and the “Reformed Baptist” (Campbell) movement into what is commonly called the Restoration Movement. Campbell had been working in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virginia, mostly among Baptist groups. Stone had been preaching to Presbyterians in Kentucky and Ohio, although trying to lead them from “denominational bondage”. Campbell had been publishing the Christian Baptist and Stone the Christian Messenger, starting in 1826. Through these publications, they began to bring their followers closer together in uniting under Christ.[3] This movement was especially powerful among the churches in the backcountry and on the western frontier.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Cause
    Common Cause is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C.[1] It was founded in 1970 by Republican John W. Gardner, the former Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare in the administration of President Lyndon Johnson. The group’s mission is to serve as a “citizens’ lobby” to establish greater transparency and accountability in U.S. political institutions.[2]

    Common Cause’s current CEO is Robert W. Edgar, a former Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives.[3][4] In September 2010, Robert Reich the former Secretary of Labor in the administration of President Bill Clinton, became the the Chairman of the National Governing Board. He replaced outgoing Chairman Archibald Cox, the former Solicitor General under President John F. Kennedy.[5]

    Common Cause has offices in 36 states, and is funded by contributions and membership fees from its nearly 400,000 members

    The organization’s mission is to establish a “nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to restoring the core values of American democracy, reinventing an open, honest and accountable government that serves the public interest, and empowering ordinary people to make their voices heard in the political process.”.[7] It focuses on five broad issues: campaign finance reform, election reform, ethics in government, government accountability, and the media. It also weighs in on health care, environmental, and defense topics.

    Some media outlets have described Common Cause as a center-left organization, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, Newsweek, TIME, and USA Today.[8][9][10][11][12] Common Cause regularly participates in the National Conference for Media Reform[13]

    [edit] Issues[edit] Campaign finance reformCommon Cause’s is most notable for its activism for campaign finance reform. In 1974 Common Cause led the effort to pass the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA), creating the current system of public financing in presidential campaigns.[14]

    At the state level, Common Cause has led successful efforts to pass campaign finance reforms, including the first disclosure laws, contribution limits and public financing in states such as Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Jersey, Michigan, Kentucky, Connecticut, and Florida.[citation needed]

    Common Cause is currently working on legislation for voluntary public financing in Maryland, New Mexico, and other states.[citation needed]

    [edit] Election reformCommon Cause advocates a voter-verified paper audit trail for election machines in all states. In January 2008, Common Cause and the Verified Voting Foundation released a report entitled “Voting at Risk 2008” highlighting the problems with electronic voting machines. The report listed 17 states as “High-Risk”.[15][16]

    Common Cause is in favor of establishing a national popular vote for presidential elections to replace the current electoral college system. Since 2005 Common Cause has advocated giving the District of Columbia voting rights in Congress.[17]

    Common Cause’s Media and Democracy department focuses on media ownership, network neutrality and community broadband.[18]=== Media ===

    [edit] EthicsCommon Cause was instrumental[citation needed] in passage of the Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007, which was enacted on September 14, 2007. The bill strengthens public disclosure requirements concerning lobbying activity and funding, places more restrictions on gifts for members of Congress and their staff, and provides for mandatory disclosure of earmarks in expenditure bills.[19]

    [edit] Government accountabilityIn 1972, Common Cause sued President Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign, the Committee to Re-Elect the President (CREEP), under the Federal Corrupt Practices Act for failure to report campaign contributions. This high-profile case forced Nixon to expose his secret list of donors and aided in his ultimate downfall two years later.[20]

    [edit] ActivismIn January 2011, Common Cause filed a petition with the Justice Department, seeking an investigation about whether United States Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas should have recused themselves from the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission case.[21] Common Cause then investigated the financial filings of Thomas, saying that Thomas did not include his wife’s income in his filings.[22] Bob Edgar, Common Cause president, called Thomas’ explanation of his omissions “implausible.”

    [edit] ControversyIn 2011, the group hosted a rally near the site of a meeting of wealthy conservative activists organized by the Koch family. Christian Hartsock, a videographer who contributes to Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com, interviewed several attendees who made racist remarks about Thomas, such as suggesting he should be lynched and that he should be put back in the fields. Another person suggested that Fox News CEO Roger Ailes should be killed. Common Cause quickly condemned such rhetoric.[23][24]

    [edit] FundingCommon Cause receives funding from, among other groups, liberal George Soros’ Open Society Institute.[25]

    [edit] Common Cause MagazineFrom 1980 through 1996, Common Cause published Common Cause Magazine.[26] The magazine, once termed “the little magazine that could,”[27] and described by the Washington Post as “a deeply researched, finger-in-your-eye sort of periodical”,[28] paralleled the work of Common Cause and focused on issues such as campaign finance and government accountability.

    The magazine won more than two dozen journalism awards, including five from Investigative Reporters and Editors, as well as a National Magazine Award for General Excellence.[28]

    According to a Washington Post article, Common Cause was considering acquiring the Washington Monthly magazine.[28] However, the National Governing Board voted against the Washington Monthly acquisition at its spring 2008 meeting.

    For the foundation started by Victorian inventor William Stanley (now the William F. Stanley Trust), see William Stanley (inventor)#Legacy.
    Stanley Foundation

    Formation 1956
    Type Public Policy Think Tank
    Location Muscatine, Iowa
    President Vladimir P. Sambaiew
    Website http://www.stanleyfoundation.org
    The Stanley Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, private operating foundation. Foundation programming is focused on promoting and building support for principled multilateralism in addressing international issues. The foundation was founded in 1956 by C. Maxwell Stanley, a professional engineer, businessman, and world citizen, and is headquartered in Muscatine, IA. According to its mission statement, “The Stanley Foundation promotes public understanding, constructive dialogue, and cooperative action on critical international issues,” while recognizing, “ the essential roles of both the policy community and the broader public in building sustainable peace.” The foundation’s current work includes specific actions toward policy change in the strategic areas of nuclear security, human protection, and the evolving global system, in addition to educational efforts.

    [edit] HistoryC. Maxwell and Elizabeth M. Stanley created the Stanley Foundation in 1956. Policy dialogue work started in 1960 with the Strategy for Peace Conference, and the first conference on the United Nations of the Next Decade was held in 1965. Project Enrichment, the initial community education program, began in the Muscatine schools in 1971. Following Max Stanley’s death in 1984, Richard H. Stanley became president of the Foundation. Like his father, Dick is a professional engineer, businessman, and world citizen. In 1989, a two-tier governance structure was established to facilitate Foundation continuity and greater family involvement. In 2007, Vladimir P. Sambaiew became Foundation president, capping a distinguished 30-year career as a Foreign Service Officer in the US Department of State. Dick Stanley continues as Board chair. Foundation staff has increased in numbers and capabilities, and the foundation continues active interactions with governments, international institutions, and non-state actors.

    [edit] ProgrammingOver the years, programming has grown, changed, and expanded, with periodic reviews and adjustments to update priorities and sharpen focus. In addition to a diverse series of events and programs, the Stanley Foundation has historically been recognized for his media. From 1974 to 2004, the foundation published the influential international news magazine World Press Review. Common Ground, an award-winning weekly radio program on world affairs, ran from 1980 to 2004. The Stanley Foundation’s current work includes specific actions toward policy change in the strategic functional areas of the evolving global system, nuclear security, human protection, as well as educational efforts. The foundation continues to supplement its policy work by gathering and producing its own audio, video, and photographic resources from around the world.

    [edit] Global leadershipFoundation efforts support an expansion of G-8 and G-20 summit agendas—as well as focused diplomacy to bridge differences, follow-through on policy initiatives, and complement relationships with the United Nations and other multilateral institutions. It is the foundation’s position that these reforms will help the summits contribute to more effective global governance and tap the international community’s capacity.

    [edit] Nuclear material securityThe Stanley Foundation promotes US and international policies that lead to the security of nuclear material around the world. It participates in and supports the Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG), a coalition of more than 40 nuclear nonproliferation groups and experts. The FMWG has made a series of policy recommendations, is tracking the nuclear security summit process from DC to Seoul, and works to engage policymakers and media on the issue. As part of its efforts toward nuclear security, the Stanley Foundation advocates specifically for the importance of UN Security Council Resolution 1540 to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction by nonstate actors. Policy dialogues and regional workshops examine the challenges and opportunities to implementing the resolution, as well as the importance of recognizing how the resolution can also meet regional security and capacity needs.

    [edit] Preventing genocideTo prevent the next mass atrocity, the Stanley Foundation engages UN officials, diplomats, and policymakers to support full implementation of the Responsibility to Protect—particularly as a preventive framework. The foundation also works to maximize the potential of the Peacebuilding Commission, which can provide an integrated and coherent approach to capacity building and reconciliation.

    [edit] Community partnershipsThe Stanley Foundation partners with community organizations to provide educational opportunities and support in the local community. These opportunities include presentations of the Earth Awareness Portable Classroom in Iowa and the immediate Quad Cities area, the chance for local educators to study and travel internationally through The Catherine Miller Explorer Awards, and various international events, such as the Iowa Student Global Leadership Conference.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_Pierce
    Franklin Pierce (November 23, 1804 – October 8, 1869) was the 14th President of the United States (1853–1857) and is the only President from New Hampshire. Pierce was a Democrat and a “doughface” (a Northerner with Southern sympathies)[1] who served in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. Pierce took part in the Mexican-American War and became a brigadier general in the Army. His private law practice in his home state, New Hampshire, was so successful that he was offered several important positions, which he turned down. Later, he was nominated as the party’s candidate for president on the 49th ballot at the 1852 Democratic National Convention.[2] In the presidential election, Pierce and his running mate William R. King won by a landslide in the Electoral College. They defeated the Whig Party ticket of Winfield Scott and William A. Graham by a 50 percent to 44 percent margin in the popular vote and 254 to 42 in the electoral vote.

    He made many friends, but he suffered tragedy in his personal life; all of his children died young. As president, he made many divisive decisions which were widely criticized and earned him a reputation as one of the worst presidents in U.S. history. Pierce’s popularity in the Northern states declined sharply after he supported the Kansas–Nebraska Act, which replaced the Missouri Compromise and renewed debate over the expansion of slavery in the American West. Pierce’s credibility was further damaged when several of his diplomats issued the Ostend Manifesto. The historian David Potter concludes that the Ostend Manifesto and the Kansas-Nebraska Act were “the two great calamities of the Franklin Pierce administration…. Both brought down an avalanche of public criticism.”[3] More importantly, says Potter, they permanently discredited Manifest Destiny and “popular sovereignty” as political doctrines.

    Abandoned by his party, Pierce was not renominated to run in the 1856 presidential election; he was replaced by James Buchanan as the Democratic candidate. After losing the Democratic nomination, Pierce continued his lifelong struggle with alcoholism and his marriage to Jane Means Appleton Pierce fell apart. His reputation was destroyed during the Civil War when he declared support for the Confederacy, and personal correspondence between Pierce and the Confederate President Jefferson Davis was leaked to the press. Pierce died in 1869 from cirrhosis of the liver.

    Philip B. Kunhardt and Peter W. Kunhardt reflected the views of many historians when they wrote in The American President that Pierce was

    “a good man who didn’t understand his own shortcomings. He was genuinely religious, he loved his wife, and he reshaped himself so that he could adapt to her ways and show her true affection. He was one of the most popular men in New Hampshire, polite and thoughtful, easy, and good at the political game, charming and fine and handsome. However, he has been criticized as timid and unable to cope with a changing America.

    Jane Means Appleton Pierce (March 12, 1806 – December 2, 1863), wife of U.S. President Franklin Pierce, was First Lady of the United States from 1853 to 1857.

    Born in Hampton, New Hampshire, the daughter of Reverend Jesse Appleton, a Congregationalist minister, and Elizabeth Means-Appleton, Jane was a petite, frail, shy, melancholy figure. After the death of her father, who had served as president of Bowdoin College not long before Franklin enrolled there, she at age 13 moved into the mansion of her wealthy maternal grandparents in Amherst.

    How she met Pierce, a young lawyer with political ambitions, is unknown, but her brother-in-law Alpheus S. Packard was one of Pierce’s instructors at Bowdoin. Franklin, aged almost 30, married Jane, aged 28, on November 19, 1834, at the home of the bride’s maternal grandparents in Amherst, New Hampshire. Theirs was a small wedding, conducted by a brother-in-law of Jane, the Reverend Silas Aiken. The couple honeymooned six days at the boardinghouse of Sophia Southurt near Washington, D.C..

    Pierce was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives by the time they married, and became a U.S. Senator in 1837. Mrs. Pierce hated life in Washington, D.C., and encouraged Pierce to resign his Senate seat and return to New Hampshire, which he did in 1842.

    Service in the Mexican-American War brought Pierce the rank of Brigadier General and local fame as a hero. He returned home safely, and for four more years the Pierces lived quietly at Concord, New Hampshire, in the happiest period of their lives, where Jane watched her son Benjamin “Benny” grow up.

    In 1852, the Democratic Party made Pierce their candidate for President. His wife fainted at the news. When Pierce took her to Newport for a respite, eleven-year-old Benny wrote to her: “I hope he won’t be elected for I should not like to be at Washington and I know you would not either.” But the President-elect convinced Jane that his office would be an asset for Benny’s success in life.

    The Pierces apparently had genuine affection for one another, but quarreled often and gradually drifted apart. She opposed Pierce’s decision to run for president, for she much preferred private life. When her son Bennie was killed in a train accident before Pierce was sworn in as President, she believed God was displeased with her husband’s political ambitions.[1] After the deaths of her children, Mrs. Pierce was overcome with melancholia and distanced herself during her husband’s presidency. She never recovered from the tragedy.

    First Lady Jane Pierce with her last surviving son, Benjamin Pierce. The child died in 1853 in a train crash, two months before his father was sworn into office as President.For nearly two years, she remained in the upstairs living quarters of the White House, spending her days writing maudlin letters to her dead son. She left the social chores to her aunt Abby Kent-Means and her close friend Varina Davis, wife of War Secretary Jefferson Davis. Mrs. Pierce made her first official appearance as First Lady at a New Year’s Day reception in 1855 and thereafter served as White House hostess intermittently.

    She died of tuberculosis at Andover, Massachusetts, on December 2, 1863. She was buried at Old North Cemetery in Concord, New Hampshire, and her husband was also interred there beside her in 1869.

    The Pierces had three children, all of whom died at young ages:

    Franklin Pierce, Jr. (February 2–5, 1836)
    Franklin “Frank” Robert Pierce (1839–1843) – died at the age of four from epidemic typhus.
    Benjamin Pierce (April 13, 1841-January 16, 1853) – Two months before Pierce’s inauguration as president, a tragedy occurred as the family traveled by train from Andover, Massachusetts, to Concord, New Hampshire, where they had planned to attend the funeral of a family friend. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Means_Appleton_Pierce

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_Parsons

    Lucy Eldine Gonzalez Parsons (born c. 1853 – March 7, 1942) was an American labor organizer and radical socialist and anarchist communist. She is remembered as a powerful orator.

    Lucy (or Lucia) Eldine Gonzalez was born around 1853 in Texas, likely as a slave, to parents of Native American, Black American and Mexican ancestry.[1] In 1871 she married Albert Parsons, a former Confederate soldier. They were forced to flee from Texas north by intolerant reactions to their interracial marriage. They settled in Chicago, Illinois.

    [edit] Career as activistDescribed by the Chicago Police Department as “more dangerous than a thousand rioters” in the 1920s, Parsons and her husband had become highly effective anarchist organizers primarily involved in the labor movement in the late 19th century, but also participating in revolutionary activism on behalf of political prisoners, people of color, the homeless and women. She began writing for The Socialist and The Alarm, the journal of the International Working People’s Association (IWPA) that she and Parsons, among others, founded in 1883. In 1886 her husband, who had been heavily involved in campaigning for the eight-hour day, was arrested, tried and executed on November 11, 1887, by the state of Illinois on charges that he had conspired in the Haymarket Riot — an event which was widely regarded as a political frame-up and which marked the beginning of May Day labor rallies in protest.[2][3]

    In 1892 she briefly published a periodical, Freedom: A Revolutionary Anarchist-Communist Monthly. She was often arrested for giving public speeches or distributing anarchist literature. While she continued championing the anarchist cause, she came into ideological conflict with some of her contemporaries, including Emma Goldman, over her focus on class politics over gender and sexual struggles.[4]

    Photograph of Parsons in 1886In 1905 she participated in the founding of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), and began editing the Liberator, an anarchist newspaper that supported the IWW in Chicago. Lucy’s focus shifted somewhat to class struggles around poverty and unemployment, and she organized the Chicago Hunger Demonstrations in January 1915, which pushed the American Federation of Labor, the Socialist Party, and Jane Addams’ Hull House to participate in a huge demonstration on February 12. Parsons was also quoted as saying: “My conception of the strike of the future is not to strike and go out and starve, but to strike and remain in and take possession of the necessary property of production.”[5] Parsons anticipated the sit-down strikes in the US and, later, workers’ factory takeovers in Argentina.

    In 1925 she began working with the National Committee of the International Labor Defense in 1927, a communist-led organization that defended labor activists and unjustly-accused African Americans such as the Scottsboro Nine and Angelo Herndon. While it is commonly accepted by nearly all biographical accounts (including those of the Lucy Parsons Center, the IWW, and Joe Knowles) that Parsons joined the Communist Party in 1939, there is some dispute, notably in Gale Ahrens’ essay “Lucy Parsons: Mystery Revolutionist, More Dangerous Than A Thousand Rioters”, which can be found in the anthology Lucy Parsons: Freedom, Equality, Solidarity. Ahrens also points out, in “Lucy Parsons: Freedom, Equality and Solidarity: Writings and Speeches, 1878 – 1937”, that the obituary the Communist Party had published on her death made no claim that she had been a member.

    Parsons continued to give fiery speeches in Chicago’s Bughouse Square into her 80s, where she inspired Studs Terkel.[6] One of her last major appearances was at the International Harvester in February 1941.

    [edit] DeathShe died on March 7, 1942, in a house fire in [Chicago, Illinois]].[7] Her lover, George Markstall,[8] died the next day from wounds he received while trying to save her. She was believed to be 89 years old.[9] After her death, police seized her library of over 1,500 books and all of her personal papers. She is buried near her husband at Waldheim Cemetery, near the Haymarket Monument[10] (now Forest Home Cemetery), in Forest Park, Illinois (then part of the city of Chicago).

    [edit] Conflict with Emma Goldman
    Emma Goldman and Lucy Parsons represented different generations of anarchism. This resulted in ideological and personal conflict. Carolyn Ashbaugh has explained their disagreements in depth:

    Lucy Parsons’ feminism, which analyzed women’s oppression as a function of capitalism, was founded on working class values. Emma Goldman’s feminism took on an abstract character of freedom for women in all things, in all times, and in all places; her feminism became separate from its working class origins. Goldman represented the feminism being advocated in the anarchist movement of the 1890s [and after]. The intellectual anarchists questioned Lucy Parsons about her attitudes on the women’s question.[11]

    In 1908, after Captain Mahoney (of the New York City Police Department) crashed one of Goldman’s lectures in Chicago, newspaper headlines read that every popular anarchist had been present for the spectacle, “with the single exception of Lucy Parsons, with whom Emma Goldman is not on the best of terms.”[12] Goldman reciprocated Parsons’s absence by endorsing Frank Harris’ book The Bomb, which was a largely fictional account of the Haymarket Affair and its martyrs road to death.[13] (Parsons had published The Famous Speeches of the Haymarket Martyrs, a non-fictional, first-hand recounting of the Haymarket martyrs’ final speeches in court.)

    Parsons was solely dedicated to working class liberation, condemning Goldman for “addressing large middle-class audiences”; Goldman accused Parsons of riding upon the cape of her husband’s martyrdom.[13] “[N]o doubt,” Candace Falk wrote (Love, Anarchy, and Emma Goldman), “there was an undercurrent of competitiveness between the two women. Emma generally preferred center stage.” Goldman planned on preserving her place in the spotlight as an American anarchist laureate by shoving risqué sexual and kinship discourse into “the center of a perennial debate among anarchists about the relative importance of such personal issues”.

    In The Firebrand, she wrote, “Mr. [Oscar] Rotter [a free love advocate] attempts to dig up the hideous ‘Variety’ grub and bind it to the beautiful unfolding blossom of labor’s emancipation from wage-slavery and call them one and the same. Variety in sex relations and economic freedom have nothing in common.”[14] Goldman responded:

    The success of the meeting was unfortunately weakened by Lucy Parsons who, instead of condemning the unjustified Comstock attacks and arrest of anarchists… took a stand against the editor of the Firebrand, [Henry] Addis, because he tolerated articles about free love… Apart from the fact that anarchism not only teaches freedom from the economic and political areas, but also in social and sexual life, L. Parsons has the least cause to object to treatises on free love… I spoke after Parsons and had a hard time changing the unpleasant mood that her remarks elicited, and I also succeeded in gaining the sympathy and the material support of the people present…[15]

    Parsons responded: “The line will be drawn sharply at personalities as we know these enlighten no one and do infinitely more harm than good.”[16]

    Goldman, in her autobiography, Living My Life, briefly mentioned the presence of “Mrs. Lucy Parsons, widow of our martyred Albert Parsons”, at a Chicago labor convention, noting that she “took an active part in the proceedings”. Goldman later would acknowledge Albert Parsons for becoming a socialist and anarchist, proceeding to praise him for having “married a young mulatto”; there was no further mention of Lucy Parsons.[17]

    [edit] Legacy, tributes and memorialsIn 2004, the City of Chicago named a park for her.[6]

    On July 16, 2007, a book that purportedly belonged to Lucy Parsons was featured on a segment of the American Public Broadcasting Service television show History Detectives. During the segment it was determined that the book, which was a biography of co-defendant August Spies’ life and trial, was most likely a copy published and sold by Parsons as a way to raise money to prevent her husband’s execution. The segment also provided background on Parsons’ life and the Haymarket affair.

    A dramatic film about Lucy and her fellow Chicago Anarchists is being developed.

    John Whiteside Parsons (born Marvel Whiteside Parsons; October 2, 1914 – June 17, 1952), better known as Jack Parsons, was an American rocket propulsion researcher at the California Institute of Technology. He was one of the principal founders of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Aerojet Corp. He was also an occultist and one of the first Americans to take a keen interest in the writings of English author and Thelema’s founder Aleister Crowley. In this capacity, he joined and eventually led an American lodge of Crowley’s magical order, Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.)

    Aaron Swartz
    Tech prodigy
    Suicide

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Swartz
    Aaron H. Swartz (November 8, 1986 – January 11, 2013) was an American computer programmer, writer, archivist, political organizer, and Internet activist. Swartz co-authored the “RSS 1.0” specification of RSS, and built the Web site framework web.py and the architecture for the Open Library. He also built Infogami, a company that merged with Reddit in its early days, through which he became an equal owner of the merged company.[i]

    Swartz also focused on sociology, civic awareness and activism. In 2010 he was a member of the Harvard University Center for Ethics. He cofounded the online group Demand Progress (best known recently for its campaign for Richard O’Dwyer) and later worked with US and international activist groups Rootstrikers and Avaaz.

    On January 6, 2011, Swartz was arrested in connection with systematic downloading of academic journal articles from JSTOR, which became the subject of a federal investigation.[2][3] JSTOR offended Swartz mainly for two reasons: it charged large fees for access to these articles but did not compensate the authors and it ensured that huge numbers of people are denied access to the scholarship produced by America’s colleges and universities.[4][5] On January 11, 2013, Swartz was found dead in his Crown Heights, Brooklyn, apartment, where he had hanged himself.

    Swartz was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Susan and Robert Swartz.[9] Swartz’s family lived in Highland Park, Illinois. His father founded a software company, and from a young age Swartz was interested in computing, ardently studying computers, the Internet and Internet culture.[10] When he was 13, Swartz was a winner of the ArsDigita Prize, a competition for young people who created “useful, educational, and collaborative” non-commercial Web sites. The prize included a trip to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and meetings with Internet notables. At the age of 14 Swartz was collaborating with experts in networking standards as a member of the working group that authored the RSS 1.0 Specification. Writing in Yahoo! News, Virginia Heffernan said about Swartz, “he agitated without cease—or compensation—for the free-culture movement.”[11]

    [edit] Infogami and RedditHe later attended Stanford University, but left after just one year.[10] Instead he founded the software company Infogami, a startup that was funded by Y Combinator’s first Summer Founders Program.[12]

    Through the Y Combinator program, Swartz started the wiki platform Infogami (later used to support the web.py and Open Library sites), but felt he needed co-founders to proceed. Y-Combinator organizers suggested that Infogami merge with Reddit,[13][14] which it did in November 2005.[13][15] While Reddit initially found it difficult to make money from the project, the site later gained in popularity, with millions of users visiting it each month. In late 2006, after months of negotiations, Reddit was sold to CondéNet, owners of Wired magazine.[10] Swartz moved with his company to San Francisco to work on Wired, but grew unhappy with the set-up[10] and in January, 2007, he was asked to resign from his position.[16] Swartz described himself as being ill and suffering from a constant depressed mood throughout 2007.[17] In September, 2007, Swartz joined with Simon Carstensen and launched Jottit. In 2010–2011 he was a fellow at Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics.[18]

    Swartz was also the creator of the web.py Web application framework,[19] and co-founded Demand Progress,[18] a progressive advocacy group that organizes people via email and other media for “contacting Congress and other leaders, funding pressure tactics, and spreading the word” about targeted issues.
