Did you know that Barack Obama is a tenth cousin of George W Bush?
They are linked by Samuel Hinkley of Cape Cod, who died in 1662.
Close political rivals – now there’s a connection in their family histories.
The ties of the US Democratic rivals were established by a respected US genealogical organisation after three years’ investigation. He was previously identified as a distant cousin of US Vice-President Dick Cheney.
His political lineage includes not just President Bush but also Gerald Ford, Lyndon Johnson, Harry S Truman, Dick Cheney and Winston Churchill.
Now what are the odds of that?
Mr Obama is also a distant cousin of the actor Brad Pitt while Hillary Clinton is related to Mr Pitt’s girlfriend, Angelina Jolie. The connection made with Hollywood star Brad Pitt adds a welcome splash of glamour to his family tree.
But Mrs Clinton’s kin has much more of an exotic feel.
Her distant cousins include the singers Madonna, Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette, as well as the beatnik author Jack Kerouac and Prince Charles’s wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles.
She and Angelina Jolie are ninth cousins, twice removed. They are both related to one Jean Cusson, who died in St Sulpice, Quebec, in 1718.
DAVID ICKE – “Let me interject that these reptilian bloodlines overwhelmingly come out of Europe from France and Britain. Alsace-Lorraine is a particularly important area for them. So, this is how it works: When you do the genealogy of the American presidents, it’s stunning. This information comes from Burke’s Peerage, which is the Bible of aristocratic genealogy, based in London. Every presidential election in America, since and including George Washington in 1789 to Bill Clinton, has been won by the candidate with the most British and French royal genes. Of the 42 presidents to Clinton, 33 have been related to two people: Alfred the Great, King of England, and Charlemagne, the most famous monarch of France. So it goes on: 19 of them are related to England’s Edward III, who has 2000 blood connections to Prince Charles. The same goes with the banking families in America. George Bush and Barbara Bush are from the same bloodline – the Pierce bloodline, which changed its name from Percy, when it crossed the Atlantic. Percy is one of the aristocratic families of Britain, to this day. They were involved in the Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament at the time of Guy Fawkes and all that. So, George Bush is related to Charlemagne and Alfred the Great. He is related to Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
You know, these different bloodlines have taken different names, but they follow the genealogy like crazy. Because they go under different names, people obviously don’t see the pattern. If Clinton and the secretary of state were Rockefellers and the main newsreader on NBC was a Rockefeller, then, people would say, excuse me, what’s going on here. So, they have different names. That’s irrelevant. It’s the bloodline that matters. The Bush family is one example, because, over these last three generations, or so, it has carried the same name, and you can actually see the way it works.
The idea that anyone can become president of the United States is utter bunkum.”
David Icke was a BBC television sports presenter and spokesman for the Green Party, when in 1990 a psychic told him that he was a healer who had been placed on Earth for a purpose, and that the spirit world was going to pass messages to him. In March 1991 he held a press conference to announce that he was a “Son of the Godhead” – a phrase he said later the media had misunderstood – and the following month told the BBC’s Terry Wogan show that the world would soon be devastated by tidal waves and earthquakes. He said the show changed his life, turning him from a respected household name into someone who was laughed at whenever he appeared in public.
David Vaughan Icke, born 29 April 1952) is an English writer and public speaker, best known for his views on what he calls “who and what is really controlling the world.” Describing himself as the most controversial speaker in the world, he is the author of 19 books and has attracted a global following that cuts across the political spectrum. His 533-page The Biggest Secret (1999) has been called “the Rosetta Stone for conspiracy junkies.”
He continued nevertheless to develop his ideas, and in four books published over seven years – The Robots’ Rebellion (1994), And the Truth Shall Set You Free (1995), The Biggest Secret (1999), and Children of the Matrix (2001) – set out a worldview that combined New-Age spiritualism with a denunciation of totalitarian trends in the modern world. At the heart of his theories lies the idea that a secret group of reptilian humanoids called the Babylonian Brotherhood controls humanity, and that many prominent figures are reptilian.
In February 1991 Icke visited the pre-Inca Sillustani burial ground near Puno, Peru, and while there said he felt drawn to a large mound of earth, at the top of which lay a circle of waist-high stones. As he stood in the circle, he said he had two thoughts: that people will be talking about this in 100 years, and it would be over when he felt the rain. He said his body started shaking as though plugged into an electrical socket and new ideas began to pour into him. Then it started raining and the experience ended. He described it later as the “kundalini” – a term from Indian yoga – activating his chakras, or energy centres, triggering a higher level of consciousness. He returned to England and began to write a book about the experience. At a Green Party conference on 20 March 1991, he resigned from the party, telling them he was about to be at the centre of “tremendous and increasing controversy,” and winning a standing ovation from them after the announcement.
Icke introduced the reptoid hypothesis in The Biggest Secret (1999), which identified the Brotherhood as descendants of reptilians from the constellation Draco, who walk on two legs and appear human, and who live in tunnels and caverns inside the earth. He argues that the reptilians are the race of gods known as the Anunnaki in the Babylonian creation myth, Enûma Eliš. According to Barkun, Icke’s idea of “inner-earth reptilians” is not new, though he has done more than most to expand it.
The reptilians not only come from another planet, but are also from another dimension, the lower level of the fourth dimension, the one nearest the physical world. Icke writes that the universe consists of an infinite number of frequencies or dimensions that share the same space, just like television and radio frequencies. Some people can tune their consciousness to other wavelengths, which is what psychic power consists of, and it is from one of these other dimensions that the Anunnaki are controlling this world.
So, this guy is telling us that Obama and other world leaders are lizards from outer space? i should be laughing in Tapa right now but uhmm.
