Why did FDR say Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and Count Rumford were the three most important Americans? (1) Why did the Holy Roman Empire and the Hapsburgs make Benjamin Thompson a nobleman? James Bond had nothing on this man of mystery.
FDR lauds their intellect and does not say why they were truly all that important. He is part of the same 'octopus' but at a lower level or 'front' for political purposes. Jefferson was a politician as was Franklin too, but that is not why they are so important. Ben Franklin might have been an agent or double agent for the plutocrats and oligarchs who were playing both sides of the freedom fence while expanding their power. He was a member of the Rosicrucian Council of Three along with Paine. Jefferson was a Newtonian alchemist or scientist who was selected and trained very early in life as part of the Merovingian genetic program and he went on to do a lot of miscegenating himself. Clearly none of this will be laid before you in any exam to pass your citizenship tests. But Rumford was given a Royal title by the Hapsburg or Holy Roman Emperors and worked with the British Royals they are part of a Holy Alliance (see Treaty of Verona etc.). Here is a little dribble about him that also makes mention of ancient electricity even though it does not detail Numa's machines which are in the British Museum.
"Two thousand years ago, a number of Greek and Roman philosophers (notably Thales of Miletus and Pliny who was killed while trying to study the eruption of Vesuvius of the year 79 when Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried beneath the ashes) had noticed the strange antics of bits of straw and of feather which were held near a piece of amber which was being rubbed with a bit of wool. The schoolmen of the Middle Ages had not been interested in this mysterious ``electric'' power. But immediately after the Renaissance, William Gilbert, the private physician of Queen Elizabeth, wrote his famous treatise on the character and behaviour of Magnets. During the Thirty Years War Otto von Guericke, the burgomaster of Magdeburg and the inventor of the air-pump, constructed the first electrical machine. During the next century a large number of scientists devoted themselves to the study of electricity. Not less than three professors invented the famous Leyden Jar in the year 1795. At the same time, Benjamin Franklin, the most universal genius of America next to Benjamin Thomson (who after his flight from New Hampshire on account of his pro-British sympathies became known as Count Rumford) was devoting his attention to this subject. He discovered that lightning and the electric spark were manifestations of the same electric power and continued his electric studies until the end of his busy and useful life. Then came Volta with his famous 'electric pile' and Galvani and Day and the Danish professor Hans Christian Oersted and Ampere and Arago and Faraday, all of them diligent searchers after the true nature of the electric forces." (2)
The Delanos of FDR's heritage are involved with the drug and other illicit enterprises. His family were aware enough of the British financing of the American War of Independence and I think his high Mason status and involvement with the Oak Island Salvage & Wrecking Company are most telling as well as the people he appointed to reconstruct Europe. Time Magazine chose him as the Man of the Century. He was if you are a Merovingian such as those who own the major media. His gift of Eastern Europe to Stalin effectively ensured the continued genocide and de-population or cover-up efforts of the true New World Order that he was involved with putting proudly upon the US greenback that became the true government of the whole world. You know what walks while money talks and I could give you a tip about 'walking softly and carrying a big stick'.
There are some people who will say there was no British Royal involvement in the funding of America and it would be counter to their own best interests. But the Royals were not increasing their wealth as much as they wanted or as much as their cousins the Rothschilds were doing. It was not long after the Second War of Independence in 1812 that we saw immortal corporate entities with increasing rights beyond any of the individual come to pass.

Questioning Both Sides of the GM Crop Debate
One question not addressed in GM Crops and Monsanto Terminator Seeds Debate and one which cannot be found in any of the online white papers on the subject is: What is known about Bee Pollination with regards to these things, if the seeding an cross-pollination cannot use the services of the Bees and Butterflies then this too could mean lower yields and thus hurt Monsanto and those which buy certain seeds from certain crops from them as well as feeding the world? And what about Wild crops in some countries that feed people? Would they be slowed due to a larger percentage of Terminating seeds?For anyone to say that a reality based decision such as the decision by the USDA to allow further implementation of Terminating GM Seeds: "flies in the face" is utter International liberal biased rabble rousing by environmental terrorists involved personal agendas and therefore is a bogus notion indeed. So what if flies in the face of public opinion if it is a viable solution? After all what is "public opinion" these days but a mirror of our daily TV intake and newspaper controversy driven sound a fury daily bombardment?Are we going to allow destruction and havoc and future starvation of billions of people based on a minority group with sharp tongues for media sound bites? Or are we as a human race dedicated in the cause of serving mankind and bring him to the absolute fullest potential in this period and set a course to go beyond the perceived possible future of the next period.
