By Zen Gardner

It’s rather ironic that this latest wave of Western armed and financed “Islamic” militants invading Iraq and now conveniently threatening Syria and Iran is named ISIS. Or is it deliberate? It’s being used to stand for this oddly anglicised, fabricated, full-on barbaric “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” movement presently sweeping Iraq, but anyone acquainted with any degree of occult knowledge or esoteric mythology knows the goddess Isis is one of the most important figures in so-called mystery schools, and a favorite of Freemasonry and the Illuminati; and one for which they have manipulated, murdered and thoroughly deceived humanity for millennia.
While the US is currently (once again) self-appointedly deciding whether to go into all out overt war on the entire region from Lebanon to Iran, based on this “unforeseen phenomenon” of ISIS, this parasitic plan goes on full throttle, ripping the guts out of millions of innocent people’s lives for the Machiavellian desires of a few; all while they hoodwink the masses into a completely backwards interpretation of their devious sorcery.
These “elite” few are fueled by something besides their psychopathy – it’s an occult allegiance to powerful symbolic entities, whether they are all fully conscious of their allegiances to these powers or not. Such is the case of most of manipulated humanity.

Isis and the Illuminati

It’s important to know that almost every portrayal of a feminine goddess, a specialty of Freemasonic art, literature and architecture, hails back to Isis - no matter whether it’s called “The Statue of Liberty”, “Blind Justice”, “Mother Mary”, “Columbia” or some other “Queen of Heaven” or whatever label they want to give her. They’re almost all the same entity. Isis in turn goes back to Sumer and the goddess Semiramis, or Ishtar, an embodiment of this same esoteric deity.
She was/is considered the goddess of enchantment and magic. Married to her brother Osiris, she gave birth to the infamous Horus (all major characters in the play), and then wandered looking for the dismembered penis of her former husband “wailing and moaning like the wind”. Hence the world “crown capitals” of Washington DC, the City of London and the Vatican all boasting phallic obelisks in this memory, as well as many other major financial and political energy centers.
The true worldly “powers that be” are beholden to other “Powers that Be” that are not so worldly. This may need more research and validation on your part, but for me and many other researchers it is very evident. When this becomes apparent, reading into the occult symbols and embedded images and language of our carefully created culture becomes a much easier, even an every day, task.
At that point it may become a bit overwhelming but don’t let it be - it’s been there all the time, we just didn’t see it.
‘The Illuminati’ is actually a rather flimsy label considering all we know about their workings. Their derivation is not as important as their current effects on humanity, but understanding their roots gives light to their intentions. That being said, here’s a quote on their roots, tying them into Isis worship and obeisance.
“Power” is not all that meets the eye.
“Popular history texts and encyclopedias generally paint the Illuminati as having its origins in 1776 Bavaria. However, the origins go back much further. The Illuminati are tied directly through masonry to the sun and Isis cults of ancient Egypt. Killing was a mystical experience to this branch of the Mystery Schools. They not only maintained their control by murder and threats of murder, they believed that the assassin could acquire the gnosis, or soul energy from the victim. This is the theory behind the human and animal sacrifices of Satanists throughout history (and the ritual child abuse etc). Satanists believe that sacrifices release more of it than anything else. Such are the dark and sordid machinations of the deluded souls who think their gnosis accumulations and illumination will give them some form of deity or immortality. . .”  [source]
That’s just a quick glimpse. Research for yourself and learn much more. Massive casualties and deaths turn them on. As it does for those controlling them behind the scenes, both here and inter-dimensional.
You’ll find this energy vampirism a recurring theme throughout any esoteric studies on this subject, a theme popularized by the Matrix movies where humans are considered energy “batteries” to be drained and utilized. That’s pretty much what they’re up to.

Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi – Leader of ISIS

By the way, as far a manipulating the Arab masses… the choice of the supposed leader’s name of these high financed and western trained pre-positioned rogue forces is Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. This name couldn't be any more incendiary.
The schism between Sunni and Shia Muslims lies in disputes over who would succeed Muhammad as leader of the faithful after his death in 632. The Shiites thought the prophet’s son-in-law and cousin should lead as caliph, particularly given his blood relationship to Muhammad. Their opponents, the Sunnis, thought Abu Bakr, one of Mohammad’s first converts, should be their leader.
The Shiites lost a series of wars for power in the early years of Islam and today are the clear minority in global Islam, making up about 15 percent of adherents. They are in the majority in Iraq and Iran. (source)
No mere coincidence there.
To emphasize the point:
After Mohammed died (632), an assembly of Muslims in Mecca elected Abu Bakr as the first ‘khalifat rasul Allah’ (successor of the Prophet of God), or caliph.
Under him the collection of Mohammed’s revelations was recorded in the Koran. Abu Bakr suppressed tribal uprisings and brought central Arabia under Muslim control, after which he directed Arab armies into Iraq and Syria initiating thus the Muslim conquests. (source)
And Al Baghdadi? Clearly an affirmation of their intent to take over the capital of Baghdad and subdue all of Iraq.
All of this is cleverly engineered, any way you look at it.

These Are Very Threatening Times – We’d Better Be Wise and Prepare

Having said the previous, the geopolitical situation is worsening at breakneck speed. It becomes increasingly apparent that time’s extremely limited for doing anything majorly “unnecessary” in each of our lives. This massive new Middle East and Ukraine initiative, with their carefully sculpted excuse unfolding as we speak, has to blow soon. On top of that, the United States is set to implode very soon with power station closures, hyper inflation, governmental crackdowns and the like.
They’re also clearly planning for massive unrest. Well of course they are, they’re causing it.
All this has to reach critical mass very soon. Once these kinds of things blow they each affect the other. Critical mass can be reached from so many different angles, not just local economic, immigration, food and energy issues, but now this recent offensive in Iraq by this marauding band of murderers. Should these “inspired” western powers go through with their stepped up plans of further intervention, I don’t see Russia and Iran standing idly by. And if it blows there, the rest could go up like a tinderbox.
This has been building for a while, but maybe that’s why this new world-startling false-flag fabricated offensive is called ISIS. The military is famous for using occult names and symbols, and this is clearly more of the same.
Are they honoring and thereby calling on their “goddess” as they pull the magic trigger?
Something to seriously wonder about. It’s clearly a time to connect the dots in any way we can and act accordingly.
Much love,


In these hot summer months, there IS one very simple and free thing you can do to keep cooler...if you have hair on your arms, legs, chest & stomach (more than peach fuzz, but does not have to be a carpet) - just shave it off completely, you will actually lower your body heat by one degree if you do this. Been doing this for years in the hot seasons, MAJOR difference that one degree makes, while you are at it - shave all the hair off from under your will actually smell LESS stink if you have no armpit hair when you sweat....the Amerindian (Mongoloid) ancestors were on to a good thing when they removed bodily hair (though they did not have as much to contend with as a person with Caucasoid DNA in them does)....and if you have Arab, Persian, Berber, Kurd, Indian (from India - and any of the other Aryan peoples), Semitic, or any of the tribes from the peninsula of Europe in your ancestry - you have Caucasoid DNA in you (in case you did not know the ethnic classifications of the people's of the Earth and thought only Nordic, Celtic & Slavic were Caucasians...if you watch 'cop shows' you should have realized by now that all 'Caucasians' are not white...otherwise the description called in by Forensic Anthropology would not be 'One dead white Caucasian male' (for example), many Caucasoids are actually brown in skin color).

Here is what Forensic Anthropology says about the subject:
The physical traits of Caucasoid crania are still recognized as distinct (in contrast to Mongoloid and Negroid races) within modern forensic anthropology. A Caucasoid skull is identified, with an accuracy of up to 95%, by the following features:
Little or no prognathism exhibited—an orthognathic profile, with minimal protrusion of the lower face.
Retreating zygomatic bones (cheekbones), making the face look more "pointed".
Narrow nasal aperture, with a tear-shaped nasal cavity.
Other physical characteristics of Caucasoids include hair texture that varies from straight to curly,with wavy (cymotrichous) hair most typical on average according to Coon (1962), in contrast to the Negroid and Mongoloid races. Individual hairs are also rarely as sparsely distributed and coarse as found in Mongoloids.
Skin color among Caucasoids ranges greatly from pale, reddish-white, olive, through to dark brown tones.

This is why, even though the experts in Serology are adamant that 'there is just one race - the human race' based on analysis of blood (though recently Neanderthal DNA was found in Caucasoid and Mongoloid people - but not in Negroid people - so technically even our DNA does have differences). The experts in Forensic Anthropology are equally adamant that they can determine which of the 3 main racial categories a person belonged to - based on their skull shape...and they are 95% accurate with this, so they too have a valid point to make.

Personally I like to compare Homo Sapiens to DOGS, sure every dog is 'Canis canis' (and can successfully interbreed)  like every Human is 'Homo sapien' (and can successfully interbreed) - every dog and every human OBVIOUSLY does not look the we are all humans but of different 'breeds' (for lack of a better word) - just as an Alsatian is NOT a Chihuahua (A Mongoloid is clearly not a Caucasoid who is likewise clearly not a Negroid) - yet they are both dogs indeed....and all dogs (like all humans) can trace back to roughly the same remote ancestor far enough back in time...what is the problem seeing the issue this way?
My 'breed' is my ancestral tribe - or combination of tribes...and your 'breed' is your ancestral tribe - or combination of tribes. Same basic principle with Dogs - we just use fancier words to describe ourselves than we do not use on 'lower' animals.

                                           Handsome Caucasoid Berber People

                                         Handsome Caucasoid Arab boys

                                           Beautiful Caucasoid Kurdish women

                                          Beautiful Caucasoid Indian girl (from India)
Handsome Caucasoid Persian men (in modern day Iran - formerly known as Persia)

Beautiful Caucasoid Nordic girl

Beautiful Caucasoid Slavic girl

Beautiful Caucasoid Celtic girls
Handsome Bantu Negroid boys

Some Mongoloid kids from Mongolia itself, I see Amerindians in the Americas who look just like this (many in my own Lokono Tribe in Guyana South America), yet some of us want to pretend that 'we' and 'them' are two different peoples...I say we are only different TRIBES - but the same race aka Mongoloid....just because many of us are bi-racial or tri-racial and look different to our original Amerindian ancestors - does not mean we are still looking like our ancestors now (other people get confused seeing a half white or half black Amerindian and mistakenly believe that is how 'real' Amerindians always looked), who I assure you looked like any other pure Mongoloid  - like these beautiful kids above, or the beautiful full-blood Lokono-Arawak girl from my tribe below.

In  1984 Irvince Auguiste became the youngest Kalinago Chief ever in the history of the great Kalinago People - the last and most successful indigenous defenders of the Caribbean islands from ALL European invaders, the Spanish, the French - even the English could not defeat them for almost 300 years after the villain Columbus unleashed the Native American Holocaust in the New World.. Irvince served his people as Chief from 1984-1994, and then served as a member of every Kalinago Tribal Council from 2004-2014.

Since the 1980s under the leadership of Irvince first two terms as Chief, we have witnessed a new political phenomenon in the Carib Territory called Caribism. This idea came from a few other community conscious people which Irvince supported. So it posits that the polarization of the Carib people along party lines is the antithesis of Carib unity and that what is needed is a Carib peoples' political organization that would enlist the support of all Caribs in securing a seat in Parliament. From there, the Carib organization could bargain with whichever party won a majority in Parliament. Caribism calls for greater autonomy in the administration of Carib Territory affairs, cultural reeducation in the schools, establishment of international linkages in an effort to assist the development of the territory, agricultural diversification, revitalization of Carib cultural heritage, and resolution of the longstanding dispute on the Territory boundaries.
The Caribism movement was unable to reverse the polarizing effect of the two main political parties during the 1985 national elections, however, although its leadership was able to win political control of the Carib Council elections in 1984. The then 22-year-old elected Carib chief, Irvince Auguiste, soon after declared a week of activities in commemoration of the Carib lives lost during the British invasion of the territory in 1930 instead of just a day.
He also moved to settle the Carib lands boundaries which have been disputed for years with the successive government of Dominica.  In 1985 he met with the Queen of England on the Royal ship while on Dominica, and the following year, 1986 traveled to England for the purpose of collecting  the repaired Mace of office of the  chief  at Buckingham palace, and to research for the Territory land title which he successfully got.

By 1986 he was also engage in the formation of a regional organization for Indigenous Peoples since he was fully conscious that  this was the best way at the time, to get a proper platform for advocacy on the plight of the Kalinago people.
In 1988 Irvince was a co-founder of the Caribbean Organization of Indigenous Peoples (COIP), the organization was born out of a first meeting of Dominica (Kalinago), Guyana (Lokono-Arawak), Belize (Maya) and St. Vincent (Garifuna) Indigenous representatives - Irvince was the only Chief present - at a meeting that was held in St. Vincent in March 1987.
So if the truth be told - Irvince Auguiste has been trying to unite the Indigenous Nations of the Caribbean ever since he first became the youngest Chief ever of his own Kalinago People.

The first CARICOM Inter-Tribal Games ever held in history was held on Pakuri Lokono-Arawak Territory in Guyana from September 26-28th 2012,  for those who do not know 'CARICOM' stands for the 'Caribbean Community' - which includes all of the 
Independent former English Colonies including Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Grenada, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, Barbados, Saint Lucia, Dominica, Antigua & Barbuda, Belize and the former Dutch colony of Suriname.
Not all these countries still have indigenous Amerindian populations however, only Guyana, Belize, Suriname, Trinidad, Saint Vincent and Dominica have known/recognized indigenous Amerindian populations.
Damon Corrie (best known Lokono descendant & Indigenous Rights activist in the Diaspora) who created these games had invited Amerindian athletes from all 5 CARICOM countries with Amerindian populations to compete, but only the Kalinago of Dominica were able to send 2 athletes (Jacob Che Frederick and Tikenti Auguiste) thanks to the personal private sponsorship of Irvince Auguiste through the Touna Village Development Agency he created & still heads.

From their spiritual perspective and in their Caribbean traditionalist Amerindian Cosmovision, the 3 tribes are of the same maternal umbilical cord/tree of life, with a base/roots in the Lokono South, a middle/ solid trunk in the Kalinago center, and top/crown & branches in the Taino North.

Dominica, West Indies (UCTP Taíno News) – December 9th, 2012 marked another historic day in the annuals of the history of Caribbean Indigenous Peoples as it marked the founding of the Caribbean Amerindian Development Organisation (CADO). The founding board of this Caribbean-based initiative includes well-known members of the Lokono ArawakKalinago Carib, and the Taíno Indigenous Nations. The group will focus on various projects to restore and or promote the tangible and intangible Amerindian culture and heritage throughout the islands, and be registered officially as a non-profit in Watikubuli (Dominica), Eastern Caribbean.

A collective statement by CADO noted that “"We are coming together to bring benefits to our peoples as best as we can. Being traditionalists as we all are, 'Development' is understood by us to be that which restores as much of our tangible and intangible heritage as has been lost and ensuring that as much as possible of it is taken into the future in the hearts and minds of the generations yet unborn that will follow us down the red road of our ancestors."

CADO’s founding board highlights gender and regional balance with the following members Shirling Simon-Corrie (Lokono), Damon Corrie (Lokono), Louisette Auguiste (Kalinago), Irvince Auguiste (Kalinago),Migdalia Ma. Pellicier (Taíno), and Roberto Mukaro Borrero (Taíno). From their spiritual perspective, and in their Caribbean traditionalist Amerindian Cosmovision, the 3 tribal nations are of the same maternal umbilical cord/tree of life, with a base/roots in the Lokono South, a middle/ solid trunk in the Kalinago center, and top/crown; branches in the Taino North.

Members are all experienced indigenous rights advocates participating throughout the region locally, nationally, and internationally at such forums as the United Nations and the Organization of American States.  Justifiably, the CADO motto is "Dedicated to the Preservation and Promotion of Amerindian Cultural Heritage, and the Implementation of Internationally Recognized Rights of Indigenous Peoples"

The groups contends that while it is well known that Caribbean Indigenous Peoples were the first to suffer “historical colonialism's cruel fate,” they are the “least listened to” of all Indigenous Peoples in the Western hemisphere. CADO members also affirm that Amerindians still suffer the effects of present-day neo-colonialism in the Caribbean, which continues to ignore indigenous existence or marginalize contemporary communities and organizations. From the perspective of its founding members, CADO’s regional perspective emphasizes, not only the spirit of resistance to assimilation, but also of the calls for Caribbean Amerindian unity.  As such, the founders of CADO plan to move forward as “one blood, one mind, and one spirit.”

As Bob Marley prophesied, “as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end.”

Most recently (prior to his newly announced candidacy for the upcoming July 2014 elections), Irvince Auguiste is spearheading a project in which students from a University in Canada are sent to the Kalinago Territory to work among the island’s indigenous people.
Irvince Auguiste told Domica News Online that this initiative comes following a recent month long trip to Canada where he participated in a special attachment program at the University of Winnipeg.
“My trip to Canada came out of a friendship that I have with a student from the Caribbean who is studying at the University of Winnipeg,” he explained. “Through that relationship that we had, she visited Dominica and as a result of the visit here she felt very much that the Territory could be one of the areas that the University could use in its annual International Attachment program for students.”
According to him he was excited about the program.
“She went back to Canada and she met with the University persons who contacted me and they were very excited themselves about having an area in the Caribbean that they could have had an international attachment,” he stated.
At present two students from the university are on attachment with in Kalinago territory.
“We decided that we would ask them for persons with interest in indigenous land management and they sent us a young man for eight weeks,” Auguiste noted. “The young lady has a financial background and we wanted her to spend some time with us and advise us on how we access credit as Kalinago people in Dominica.”
Based on that, Auguiste noted, he hopes to contact different financial institutions to find out what is their policy as it relates to the Kalinago Territory since those who live there do not have land as collateral for loans.
“We will probably look at that and hoping that information collected from that will put us in a position to formulate a proposal to submit to the government or an Non Governmental Organization to establish a financial facility specifically for the Kalinago people of Dominica,” he said.
He also revealed that the university is prepared to sponsor a part scholarship for a Kalinago student who would be willing to be a part of that program in September 2015.

Mr. Jeff Goss - with the support of Chief Martin Walking Bear Wilson - a member of the Amonsoquath Cherokee Tribal Nation of the USA is willing to work with Chief Auguiste and the New Kalinago Council to develop Aquaculture projects on the Kalinago Territory, and Irvince also has excellent collaborative relationships with the Lokono-Arawak and Taino Tribal Nations of the region who are trying to help find external markets for Kalinago cottage industries in North America and Europe together with their own heritage products ....Irvince is also the most famous Kalinago Chief locally, regionally and internationally - ever since his National Geographic article appearance in the June 1990 issue - boosted by his widely acknowledged advanced autodidact diplomatic skills that allow him to open doors in the halls of power locally, regionally and internationally -  that others do not achieve as easily.   

"I made a decision to serve the Kalinago Territory as Chief again. I was Chief at 21 years and 8 months of age. I did it when there was very little in the way of human resources and when we the Kalinago people had to struggle for recognition. I championed that cause successfully. Now we have the support I dreamed of, but I am disappointed that we are not embracing all the educated professionals of our Territory, and to make them part of the decision making.
I want to be a leader to unite our people again across all differences, restore dignity in the office of the Chief, so that Kalinago people can once again feel proud to be Kalinago. Change the system of our governance to be one of inclusion, instead of a one man show. Let us do it my people. I promise to lead the battle without fear or favor!"
Irvince Auguiste, Kalinago Teritory; Dominica. 11 June 2014 

A YOUNG KALINAGO VOTER SPEAKS (copied from the FB group Kalinago Connections):  
"The reason I didn't mention Irvince before has been because he is the only one in the group (of 4 candidates) that has consistently engaged some of us young folks and asked our opinions on stuff over time. As young people, we need leaders that are willing to engage us in decision-making, because the future belongs to us, not them. I've grilled all of these candidates over and over, and to me, if a 'youth in decision-making agenda' has to be pushed, I'd go with Irvince. I have asked him about his assertion of the Chief and Council as operating as independently from Government as possible, his views on the housing schemes, the UN Convention on the Rights of Indigenous people and ILO 169 and a range of other issues. So far I have been satisfied with the responses but we have their campaign period to continue asking."
 Kimani John, Kalinago Student of the University of the West Indies; 11 June 2014

Irvince outlined his vision for the future: 
" I understand the frustration of our youths. People often make general statements that 'nothing has happened in the Kalinago Territory" which is a common remark in every political setting, whether it is local or national. 
When I served as chief there was only one telephone at the police station and it served everyone who needed to use a phone. There was no electricity, no Cable TV, no pipe borne water; when I left office as Chief there was water in a few villages that had streams that could flow water via gravity - also electricity came and there were many more telephones at private homes, and even public telephones..the Jolly John public playing park was done among other developments. 

In the current tenure of Chief Garnette Joseph we obtained a Health facility in the Kalinago Territory....I am mentioning that as I believe credit must be given where it is due devoid of any political rivalry, so I wonder why would some people feel that the Territory has not improved. 
Over the last 20 years much more could have been done at certain times, should I be entirely blamed for it ? Did my successors build on the foundation I made or take any of my advice? Ask the Dominican Public. They know! As Chief I never had the resources from 1984-1994 and assistance that now exist. I did what I could at the time. 
I see opportunities that we can do to use to our advantage right now. Think of me as chief 20 years ago, young and without experience, yet I stood up to the challenge for two straight terms. I must have been doing something right. 

I have more experience now, and would like to be the chief who visits my people at their homes, not sit in the Council office all the time... I need to and I WILL include everyone - If I am given another chance to serve my people after these 20 years out of office that I have spent taking note of the failures - and unwillingness to listen to my humble advice to correct these mistakes as a mostly ignored Council member - of different Chiefs with very different non-inclusive leadership styles - that came after me."

NB - The polling date itself for the election of Kalinago Chief is carded for July 7th 2014, and the poll for the Kalinago Council will be held on July 28 and Nomination Day is on July 15, 2014. 
We at LRI hope that the Great Kalinago people will choose wisely, and vote for the best candidate for this very important leadership role fact is obvious to all who have been following the Kalinago People's history since the days of the Great Chief 'Carib' Warner.....NO other Kalinago leader in recorded history has done as much as - or more than - Irvince Auguiste to instill a sense of cultural pride in the Kalinago Nation or foster regional unity among the descendants of the often forgotten first peoples of the Caribbean - these are one of our brothers and sister tribal nations who paid the heaviest price in blood sweat and tears from the European invasion of this hemisphere....and we should never forget it.

Here is the oldest image of Paul ever discovered (found in a Catacomb in Rome), no wonder he spoke against men having long hair (as Jesus did), he had the Roman short cut head hair style he espoused so much....but how can a 'true and devoted follower' - attack his own master's appearance? Because Paul was a 'true and devoted follower' of his own ego above all else!  Yet you still hold him as being a 'holy' man. 

The Disciple James was called 'The Righteous' by the other 11 Disciples Jesus chose himself, Jesus never chose Paul (in fact the 12 Disciples said in the Dead Sea Scrolls - which the Church that Paul's doctrines founded could not destroy or hide from us - that 'Paul is a LIAR'), yet every Sunday you hear 'Paul's sayings quoted more than Jesus - do you not think this is suspicious? Especially when you KNOW Jesus (and almost every other tribal person on Earth at that time) had long hair like every other member of the Hebrew tribe - and Paul teaches 'Christians' (who are supposed to be followers of JESUS not 'Paul') that "It is a disgrace for a man to have long hair on his head like a woman" ...who are YOU really following if you consider yourself a 'Christian'? The doctrines of Jesus - or the doctrines of the ex-mass murderer and LIAR Paul? 

You might ask yourself - If James played so important a role in the events of the time, why do we know so little about him? Why has he been relegated to the status of a shadowy figure in the background? Those questions can be answered simply enough.

James, whether he was literally Jesus' brother (younger brother and son of Joseph & Mary) or not, had known Jesus personally in a way that Paul never did. In his teachings, he was certainly closer to 'the source' than Paul ever was. And his objectives and preoccupations were often at variance with Paul's - were sometimes, indeed, diametrically opposed. For Paul, then, James would have been a constant irritant. With the triumph of Pauline Christianity, therefore, James's significance, if it couldn't be obliterated completely, had, at the very least, to be diminished.

Unlike a number of personalities in the New Testament, James does seem to have been an historical personage, and yet, moreover, he was one who played a more prominent role in the affairs of his time than is generally recognized. There is, in fact, a reasonably copious body of literature pertaining to James, even though most of it lies outside the canonical compilation of the New Testament that the followers of Paul successfully excluded from our Bible (but not the Ethiopian Bible which is the most complete one in existence) .

In the New Testament itself, James is mentioned in the Gospels as one of Jesus' brothers, though the context is generally vague or confusing and has obviously been tampered with. In Acts, as we have discussed, he assumes rather more prominence, though it is not until the second part of Acts that he emerges in any kind of perspective. Then, with Paul's letter to the Galatians, he is clearly identified as the leader of the 'early Church', who resides in Jerusalem and is attended by a council of elders.

Apart from those that impinge on Paul, however, one learns little of his activities, and even less about his personality and biography. Neither is the Letter of James in the New Testament of much value in this respect. The letter may indeed derive from a text by James, and attention has been drawn to its Qumranic style, language and imagery.

It contains (James 5:6) an accusation whose significance will become apparent shortly - an accusation to the effect that 'you murdered the righteous [or just] man'.

Again, however, no personal information is vouchsafed.

Such is James's role in scripture proper. But if one looks further afield, a portrait of James does begin to emerge. One source of information he has emphasized is an anonymous text of the 'early Church', the so-called 'Recognitions of Clement', which surfaced very early in the 3rd century. According to this document, James is preaching in the Temple when an unnamed 'enemy', accompanied by an entourage of followers, bursts in.

The 'enemy' taunts James's listeners and drowns out his words with noise, then proceeds to inflame the crowd,
'with reviling and abuse, and, like a madman, to excite everyone to murder, saying, "What do ye? Why do ye hesitate? Oh, sluggish and inert, why do we not lay hands upon them, and pull all these fellows to pieces?" 
The 'enemy' does not confine himself to a verbal assault. Seizing a brand of wood, he begins to flail about with it at the assembled worshipers, and his entourage follow suit.

A full-scale riot ensues:
Much blood is shed; there is a confused flight, in the midst of which that enemy attacked James, and threw him headlong from the top of the steps; and supposing him to be dead, he cared not to inflict further violence upon him.
James, however, is not dead. According to the 'Recognitions', his supporters carry him back to his house in Jerusalem. The next morning, before dawn, the injured man and his supporters flee the city, making their way to Jericho, where they remain for some time - presumably while James convalesces.

This attack on James is pivotal. The parallels between it and the attack on 'Stephen' as recounted in Acts. It suggests that 'Stephen' may be an invented figure, to disguise the fact that the attack - as Acts could not possibly have admitted - was really directed at James. And he points out that Jericho, where James flees for refuge, is only a few miles from Qumran of the 'Stephen' version Paul peddled..

What is more, the flight to Jericho has a ring of historical truth to it. It is the kind of incidental detail that is unlikely to have been fabricated and interpolated, because it serves no particular purpose. As for the 'enemy', there would seem to be little doubt about his identity.

The 'Recognitions of Clement' concludes:
Then after three days one of the brethren came to us from Gamaliel... bringing us secret tidings that the enemy had received a commission from Caiaphas, the chief priest, that he should arrest all who believed in Jesus, and should go to Damascus with his letters...
The surviving editions of Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews contain only one reference to James, which may or may not be later interpolation. The chronicle reports that the Sanhedrin, the religious high court, call before them James, 'the brother of Jesus who was called Christ'.

Accused (most improbably) of breaking the Law, James and certain of his companions are found guilty and accordingly stoned to death. Whether this account is accurate, doctored or wholly invented, the most important aspect of it is the date to which it refers. Josephus indicates that the events he has described occurred during an interval between Roman procurators in Judea.

The incumbent procurator had just died. His successor, Lucceius Albinus, was still en route to Palestine from Rome. During the interregnum, effective power in Jerusalem was wielded by the high priest, an unpopular man named Ananas. This allows the account of James's death to be dated at around AD 62 - only four years before the outbreak of the revolt in AD 66.

Here, then, is at least some chronological evidence that James's death may have had something to do with the war that ravaged the Holy Land between AD 66 and 73. For further information, however, one must turn to later Church historians.

Perhaps the major source is Eusebius, 4th-century Bishop of Caesarea (the Roman capital of Judea) and author of one of the most important early Church histories. In accordance with the conventions of the time, Eusebius quotes at length from earlier writers, many of whose works have not survived. In speaking of James, he cites Clement, Bishop of Alexandria (c. AD 150-215).

Clement refers to James as 'the Righteous', or, as it is often translated, 'the Just' - 'Zaddik' in Hebrew. This, of course, is the by now familiar Qumranic usage, whence derives the 'Teacher of Righteousness', the leader of the Qumran community. According to Clement, Eusebius reports, James was thrown from a parapet of the Temple, then beaten to death with a club.

Later in his chronicle, Eusebius quotes extensively from a 2nd-century Church historian, Hegesippus. All of Hegesippus' works were reputedly extant as late as the 16th or 17th century. Everything has since disappeared, though copies may well exist in the Vatican Library (99% the contents of which is secret), as well as in the library of one or another monastery -in Spain, for example. At present, however, almost everything we have by Hegesippus is contained in the excerpts from his work cited by Eusebius.

Quoting Hegesippus, Eusebius states that James 'the Righteous' 'was holy from his birth':
he drank no wine ... ate no animal food (indicating vegetarianism was an ancient practice); no razor came near his head (PROVING HE HAD LONG HAIR LIKE JESUS ANDEVERY OTHER DEVOUT JEW); he did not smear himself with oil. He alone was permitted to enter the Holy Place [the Holy of Holies in the Temple], for his garments were not of wool but of linen [i.e. priestly robes]. He used to enter the Sanctuary alone, and was often found on his knees beseeching forgiveness for the people, so that his knees grew hard like a camel's... Because of his unsurpassed righteousness, he was called the Righteous and... 'Bulwark of the people'...
At this point, it is worth interrupting the text to note certain intriguing details. James is said to wear linen, or priestly robes. This was the prerogative of those who served in the Temple and belonged to one of the priestly families, traditionally the Sadducean 'aristocracy' who, during the 1st century, came to an accommodation with Rome and the Herodian dynasty of Roman puppets. Again, Eisenman points out, Epiphanius, another Church historian, speaks of James wearing the mitre of the high priest.13

Then, too, only the high priest was allowed to enter the Holy of Holies, the inner sanctum and most sacred spot in the Temple.
  • What, then, can James be doing there -and without eliciting any explanation or expression of surprise from Church historians, who seem to find nothing untoward or irregular in his activities?
  • Did he, perhaps, by virtue of his birth, have some legitimate right to wear priestly apparel and enter the Holy of Holies?
  • Or might he have been acting, as Eisenman suggests, in the capacity of a kind of 'opposition high priest' - a rebel who, defying the established priesthood's accommodation with Rome, had taken upon himself the role they had betrayed? I suspect the latter! Which would explain the hatred the fraud Paul had towards him - as Paul wanted to lead a 'pseudo spiritual revolution' not a genuine think not? You forget Paul is the one who's doctrines tell slaves to be 'obedient to your earthly masters and even take beatings with humility' - this was used as a justification for the African slave trade! Does the deceiving Paul who was actually helping to maintain the wicked status quo become a bit clearer to you now? No wonder the Churches that resulted from Paul's doctrines caused so much misery and EVIL in the world!...and poor Jesus is the one who gets the blame and hatred for Paul's FALSE 'Christianity'. It is CLEAR who Paul is truly serving on the Earth. 
Certainly the established priesthood had no affection for James. According to Hegesippus, the 'Scribes and Pharisees' decide to do away with him, so that the people 'will be frightened and not believe him'.

They proclaim that 'even the Righteous one has gone astray', and invoke a quote from the Old Testament - in this case from the prophet Isaiah (Isa. 3:10) - to justify their actions. They note that Isaiah had prophesied the death of the 'Righteous One'. In murdering James, therefore, they will simply be bringing Isaiah's prophecy to fulfillment. But also, in using this quote from Isaiah, they are following a technique employed in both the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament.

Just as this quote is used in order to describe the death of James, so the Qumran community employs similar 'Righteousness' passages from the New Testament in order to describe the death of the 'Teacher of Righteousness'.

Eusebius goes on to describe the death of James in the following manner:
So they went up and threw down the Righteous one. They said to each other 'let us stone James the Righteous', and began to stone him, as in spite of his fall he was still alive... While they pelted him with stones... [a member of a particular priestly family] called out: 'Stop! What are you doing...' Then one of them, a fuller, took the club which he used to beat clothes, and brought it down on the head of the Righteous one. Such was his martyrdom... Immediately after this Vespasian began to besiege them. 
Vespasian, who became emperor in AD 69, commanded the Roman army that invaded Judea to put down the revolt of AD 66. Here again, then, is a chronological connection between James's death and the revolt. But Eusebius goes further. The connection for him is more than just chronological.

The entire 'siege of Jerusalem', he says, meaning presumably the whole of the revolt in Judea, was a direct consequence of James's death - 'for no other reason than the wicked crime of which he had been the victim'.

To support this startling contention, Eusebius invokes Josephus. The passage of Josephus he quotes, although no longer to be found in any extant version of Josephus, was unquestionably what Josephus wrote, because Origen, one of the earliest and most prolific of the Church Fathers, quotes precisely the same passage.

Referring to the revolt of AD 66 and the Roman invasion that followed, Josephus states that,
'these things happened to the Jews in requital for James the Righteous, who was a brother of Jesus known as Christ, for though he was the most righteous of men, the Jews put him to death'. 
From these fragments pertaining to James, a scenario begins to take form. James, the acknowledged leader of the 'early Church' in Jerusalem, represents a faction of Jews who, like the Qumran community, are 'zealous for the Law'. This faction is understandably hostile towards the Sadducee priesthood and the high priest Ananas (appointed by Herod), who have betrayed their nation and their religion by concluding an accord with the Roman administration and its Herodian puppet-kings (sounds like the Church Paul's followers eventually founded in ROME).

So intense is this hostility that James arrogates to himself the priestly functions which Ananas has compromised. Ananas' supporters respond by contriving James's death. Almost immediately thereafter, the whole of Judea rises in revolt, and Ananas is himself one of the first casualties, assassinated as a pro-Roman collaborator. As the rebellion gains momentum, Rome is forced to react, and does so by dispatching an expeditionary force under Vespasian.

The result is the war which witnesses the sack of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple in AD 68, and which does not end until the fall of Masada in AD 74.

The only uncertain element in this scenario is the nature and magnitude of the part played by James's death. Did it merely coincide chronologically? Or was it, as Josephus and Eusebius assert, the primary causal factor? The truth, almost certainly, lies somewhere in between: the revolt stemmed from enough contributing factors for the historian not to have had to fall back on James's death as a sole explanation. On the other hand, the evidence unquestionably indicates that James's death was not just a marginal incident. It would seem to have had at least something to do with the course of public events.

In any case James, as a result of careful analysis, indubitably James emerges as a more important personage in 1st-century history than Christian tradition has hitherto acknowledged. And the 'early Church' emerges in a very different light. It is no longer a congregation of devotees eschewing politics and public affairs, pursuing a course of personal salvation and aspiring to no kingdom other than that of heaven.

On the contrary, it becomes one of the manifestations of Judaic nationalism at the time - a body of militant individuals intent on upholding the Law, deposing the corrupt Sadducee priesthood of the Temple, toppling the dynasty of illegitimate puppet-kings and driving the occupying Romans from the Holy Land. In all these respects, it conforms to conventional images of the Zealots....and I remind you - two of the disciples WERE Zealots (Hebrew warriors who fought against the enemies of the people)  - yet Jesus choose them and let them keep their swords under their cloaks and never forbade them from being armed : 

Luke 22:36-38 - He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.” The disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.” “That’s enough!” he replied.

Yet Paul's doctrines paint a picture of a Jesus who would rather that we suffer and die never resisting our oppressors - only forgiving and praying for them......this was used wonderfully by so-called Christians for centuries who invaded native lands and peoples all over the world and brainwashed them to 'remain peaceful' while the invaders gave them the Bible and took every dam thing the natives had of their own - including their bodies. Can't you see how effective Paul's doctrines of lies have become? Most Christians are TERRIFIED of physically fighting for anything - because they have been conditioned to be sheep, always following orders from someone 'higher' than themselves who claims to speak for or represent God.  If Jesus was so devotedly pacifist - why did he loose his temper in the temple? Was Jesus shizofrenic? Or Is Paul's doctrine merely being used to PACIFY you so those more cunning can do with you as they will?  

John 2.15  So Jesus made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
(other versions say he drove 'them' - the money changers out - not cattle, and a 'money changer' of 2,000 years ago is basically a small time 'banker' cambio owner of today....and like Televangelists of today - they too were 'making money in places that were supposed to be holy').   
Here is one of those other versions of this incident in Mathew 21:12 "Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out all the people buying and selling animals for sacrifice. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves."

Here we see Jesus not only lost his temper - he WHIPPED people and threw over their tables....go and 'overturn' a table in your home and tell me that is not an act of violence!
I am not saying Jesus was a warmonger, but he was not a pathetic wimp either, he kept his cool most of the time, but even he had his breaking point, so do not feel 'guilty' because you will not tolerate certain obnoxious things in this life...there is no sin in standing up for what is right against what is wrong, even if you must use violence as a last resort when you take such a stand,  

But what has all this to do with Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls?

From the Acts of the Apostles, from Josephus and from early Christian historians, there emerges a coherent, if still incomplete, portrait of James, 'the Lord's brother'. He appears as an exemplar of 'righteousness' - so much so that 'the Just', or 'the Righteous', is appended as a sobriquet to his name.

He is the acknowledged leader of a 'sectarian' religious community whose members are 'zealous for the Law' (as Jesus was when he beat people in the temple who were breaking Gods law and disrespecting holiness with money lust). He must contend with two quite separate and distinct adversaries. One of these is Paul, an outsider who, having first persecuted the community, then 'converts' and is admitted into it, only to turn renegade, prevaricate and quarrel with his superiors, hijack the image of Jesus and begin preaching his own doctrine -a doctrine which draws on that of the community, but distorts it.

James's second adversary is from outside the community - the high priest Ananas, head of the Sadducee priesthood. Ananas is a notoriously corrupt and widely hated man. He has also betrayed both the God and the people of Israel by collaborating with the Roman administration and their Herodian puppet-kings FOR LOVE OF MONEY AND EARTHLY POWER. James publicly challenges Ananas and eventually meets his death at the hands of Ananas' minions; but Ananas will shortly be assassinated in turn.

All of this takes place against a backdrop of increasing social and political unrest and the impending invasion of a foreign army.

With this scenario in mind, look to the Dead Sea Scrolls, and particularly the 'Habakkuk Commentary'. When the fragmentary details of the Qumran texts had been assembled into a coherent sequence, what emerged was something extraordinarily similar to the chronicle of Acts, Josephus and early Christian historians.

The scrolls told their own story, at the center of which was a single protagonist, the 'Teacher of Righteousness' - an exemplar of the same virtues associated with James. Like James, the 'Teacher' was the acknowledged leader of a 'sectarian' religious community whose members were 'zealous for the Law'. And like James, the 'Teacher' had to contend with two quite separate and distinct adversaries.

One of these was dubbed the 'Liar', an outsider who was admitted to the community, then turned renegade, quarreled with the 'Teacher' and hijacked part of the community's doctrine and membership. According to the 'Habakkuk Commentary',
the 'Liar' 'did not listen to the word received by the Teacher of Righteousness from the mouth of God'.

Instead, he appealed to 'the unfaithful of the New Covenant in that they have not believed in the Covenant of God and have profaned His holy name'.
The text states explicitly that,
'the Liar... flouted the Law in the midst of their whole congregation'.
He 'led many astray' and raised 'a congregation on deceit'. He himself is said to be 'pregnant with [works] of deceit'. These, of course, are precisely the transgressions of which Paul is accused in Acts - transgressions which lead, at the end of Acts, to the attempt on his life. And Paul's striking hypersensitivity to charges of prevarication and perjury.

In 1 Timothy 2:7, for example, he asserts indignantly, as if defending himself, that 'I am telling the truth and no lie'.

In II Corinthians 11:31, he swears that:
'The God and Father of the Lord Jesus... knows that I am not lying.'
These are but two instances; Paul's letters reveal an almost obsessive desire to exculpate himself from implied accusations of falsity.

According to the Dead Sea Scrolls, the 'Liar' was the adversary of the 'Teacher of Righteousness' from within the community. The 'Teacher's' second adversary was from outside. This was the 'Wicked Priest', a corrupt representative of the establishment who had betrayed his function and his faith. He conspired to exterminate the 'Poor' - those 'zealous for the Law' - said to be scattered about Jerusalem and other places.

He harried the 'Teacher of Righteousness' wherever the 'Teacher' sought refuge. At the hands of the 'Wicked Priest's' minions, the 'Teacher' suffered some serious injury and possibly - the text is vague on the matter - death. Subsequently, the 'Wicked Priest' was himself assassinated by followers of the 'Teacher', who, after killing him, 'took vengeance upon his body of flesh' - that is, defiled his corpse.

The parallels between the 'Wicked Priest' of the scrolls and the historical figure of the high priest Ananas are unmistakable.

In his book on James, Eisenman explores these parallels - JamesPaul and Ananas on the one hand, the 'Teacher of Righteousness', the 'Liar' and the 'Wicked Priest' on the other - in exhaustive detail. He goes through the 'Habakkuk Commentary' and other texts line by line, comparing them with information vouchsafed by Acts, by Josephus and by early Christian historians.

It would be impossible here to do adequate justice to the weight of evidence he amasses. But the conclusions of this evidence are inescapable. The 'Habakkuk Commentary' and certain other of the Dead Sea Scrolls are referring to the same events as those recounted in Acts, in Josephus and in the works of early Christian historians.

This conclusion is reinforced by the striking and pervasive recurrence of Qumranic philosophy and imagery in Acts, in the Letter of James and in Paul's copious epistles. It is also reinforced by the revelation that the place for which Paul embarks and in which he spends three years as a postulant is in fact Qumran, not the city in Syria. Even the one fragment that would not, at first, appear to fit -the fact that the persecution and death of James occurs quite specifically in Jerusalem, while the Dead Sea Scrolls have been assumed to chronicle events in Qumran - is explained within the texts themselves.

The 'Habakkuk Commentary' states explicitly that the leadership of the community were in Jerusalem at the relevant time.

There is another point that is particularly important. In the Letter to the Romans (1:17), Paul states that,
'this is what reveals the justice of God to us: it shows how faith leads to faith, or as scripture says: the upright man finds life through faith'.
The same theme appears in the Letter to the Galatians (3:11):
'the Law will not justify anyone in the sight of God, because we are told: the righteous man finds life through faith'.
These two statements constitute, in effect, 'the starting-point of the theological concept of faith'. They are ultimately, 'the foundation piece of Pauline theology'. They provide the basis on which Paul is able to make his stand against James - is able to extol the supremacy of faith, while James extols the supremacy of the Law of God.

From where does Paul derive this principle of the supremacy of faith? It was certainly not an accepted part of Judaic teaching at the time. In fact, it derives from the original Book of Habakkuk, a text of Old Testament apocrypha believed to date from the mid-7th century BC. According to Chapter 2, Verse 4 of the Book of Habakkuk, 'the upright man will live by his faithfulness'. Paul's words in his letters are clearly an echo of this statement; and the Book of Habakkuk is clearly the 'scripture' to which Paul refers.

More important still, however, is the 'Habakkuk Commentary' - the gloss and exegesis on part of the Book of Habakkuk found among the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The 'Habakkuk Commentary' cites the same statement and then proceeds to elaborate upon it:
But the righteous shall live by his faith. Interpreted, this concerns all those who observe the Law in the House of Judah, whom God will deliver from the House of Judgment because of their suffering and because of their faith in the Teacher of Righteousness.
This extraordinary passage is tantamount, in effect, to a formulation of early 'Christian' doctrine. It states explicitly that suffering, and faith in the 'Teacher of Righteousness', constitute the path to deliverance and salvation. From this passage in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Paul must have derived the foundation for the whole of his own theology. But the passage in question declares unequivocally that suffering and faith in the 'Teacher of Righteousness' will lead to deliverance only among 'those who observe the Law in the House of Judah'.

It is just such emphasis on adherence to the Law that Paul contrives to ignore, thereby precipitating his doctrinal dispute with James and the other members of the 'early Church'.

Here is an example of Paul's false doctrines leading braiwashed 'Christians' to deceive in the name of God once again:
