2020 is not only the year of the next U.S. presidential election, it is also the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower ‘Pilgrims’ in North America and the beginnings of Puritan New England. And both the election and anniversary occur in the same month.
There is an undeniable historic link between the origins of Puritan settlement of North America (particularly that in Massachusetts Bay from 1630 onwards) and the remarkable events which have shaken the nation since 2016.
The Mayflower Compact and later covenanting agreements of the Puritan congregations of Massachusetts Bay contributed a profound sense of “calling,” commitment to actively form gated communities and a moral contract as part of a venture which saw itself as an “American Israel.”
Importantly, this “American Israel” was culturally and psychologically armed to dominate the original U.S. inhabitants. The ideas of exceptionalism and divine calling then became secularised in 19-century claims regarding “Manifest Destiny” and the subjugation of the indigenous.
Despite progress since the 17th century, this has had a profound impact on U.S. culture and still informs much of the outlook of many people concerning what it means to be an American. In fact, Thanksgiving celebrates the American exceptionalism of the Puritans.
While Donald Trump is certainly no Puritan, his appeal to evangelicals has 17th century roots. But Puritanism is a global movement, not an American one, so President Trump has ruined an enterprise, a global venture, the Zionist enterprise, for the Zionists, today’s Puritans.
The Puritans left a unique legacy that explains the role of the evangelicals in modern U.S. politics and, ultimately, the Trump presidency. While the Neocons and the Tea Party failed to exploit Puritanism, Trump has harnessed some of its American legacy despite his impropriety.
Puritanism is part of the American story whether we like it or not. blogs.mediapart.fr/nicholas-molod…

Piss off. “De-platforming” is a total bullshit word. A new architecture for the social control of information in “the West” is being implemented, similar to the Cold War. The Cold War was a hoax, too.
I am old enough to remember when families relied on an a set of encyclopedia in the house for information. What is happening today is no different. Cut the dystopian bullshit.

Globalists is a subject on everybody’s lips, but this is certainly nothing new. Recent advances in mass communications technology and the internationalization of markets have created a greater degree of mutual interpenetration among societies worldwide than ever existed before.
It is now exceedingly easy for a reputable organization or serious person to “sell out.” Foreign backers have become the standard, not the exception. A market idea that was once thought of as “big in Japan,” is now big in the world. Sovereignty was lost to this kind of globalism.
It is not globalism versus sovereignty. It is dishonesty versus honesty. For example, the Anglo-Saxon “Russia watchers” in the media are dishonest assholes that have no business poking their noses in another country’s business, uninvited. They are dishonest to the core.

While a number of Atlantic Puritans emerged from the nucleus of the Ancient Church and others eventually joined those original networks, ultimately membership within the Puritan Atlantic involved an embrace of a particular attitude about faith, commerce and political involvement.
Atlantic Puritans exploited the religion of settlers and the indigenous scattered throughout the Caribbean and along the Atlantic coastline of North America in the guise of England’s political hedge against “Catholic colonization” and the lunacy of “Christ’s millennial return.”
Today, these barbaric idiots can be found at @AtlanticCouncil. blogs.mediapart.fr/nicholas-molod…

The British give it a stupid name, “Orwellian,” in an effort to play it down — white supremacy. What a shit show, Britain!

Now that we know what we need to know, we can map out the British Puritan network. I find the Caribbean particularly interesting, the Cayman Islands, for one, for obvious reasons—where one hide money from the government by exploiting U.S. tax loopholes in shady investing deals.
Nobody speaks of the Caymans any longer. republicworld.com/world-news/res…
The Puritans left a very distinct footprint. We ought to know what that footprint looks like. I worked for seven years for one of the lunatics. I’ve a pretty good idea. blogs.mediapart.fr/nicholas-molod…

“Zionism may have ditched all of the spiritual aspects of the peaceful religion of Judaism but it conveniently held on to mesira (omertà), no interest money lending for other Jews, and the transnational tribal networking.” blogs.mediapart.fr/nicholas-molod…
Like global mafia families who sometimes fight each other but remain "cosa nostra." Stupid bullies.
The Great Awakening is here.
