Donald J Trump Lineage (Jewish) (Scottish)(German)

Friedrich Trump, Sir Donald J. Trump’s grandfather, was born in the town of Kallstadt in the Palatinate, which was part of the Kingdom of Bavaria at the time, to Christian Johannes Trump and Katherina Kober (Jewish).

Kallstadt, a relatively impoverished region, was known for its viticulture since the Roman Empire.

Trump’s ancestor, Hans Drumpf, first settled in Kallstadt in 1608, and his family owned a vineyard. In 1871, Bavaria became part of the new German Empire. Trump’s son Fred later denied his German heritage, instead claiming his father had been a Swede from Karlstad.

After being sick with emphysema for ten years, Fred Trump’s father died on July 6, 1877, at the age of 48, leaving the family in debt from medical expenses. While all five of his siblings worked in the family grape fields, Trump was considered too sickly to endure hard labor.

In 1883, Trump, then aged 14, was sent to nearby Frankenthal by his mother to work as a barber’s apprentice and learn the trade. Trump worked seven days a week for two and a half years under barber Friedrich Lang.

After completing his apprenticeship, he returned to Kallstadt, but quickly discovered that there was not enough business to earn a living. He was also approaching the age when he would have to serve a mandatory three-year military service. He quickly decided to immigrate to the United States, later saying,

“I agreed with my mother that I should go to America”; years later, his family members said that he left secretly in the night and left his mother a note without consulting her.

Move to the United States
U.S. Immigration records. Line 33 mentions “Friedr. Trumpf.” age 16, born in Kallstadt, Germany.

In 1885, at age 16, Trump emigrated from Bremen, Germany, to the United States aboard the steamship S.S. Eider, departing on October 7 and arriving at the Castle Garden Emigrant Landing Depot in New York City on October 19.

U.S. immigration records list his name as “Friedrich Trumpf,” last place of residence as “Kallstadt,”country of birth as “Germany,”and his occupation as “farmer.”

He moved in with his older sister Katherine – who had emigrated in 1883 and her husband Fred Schuster.

Only a few hours after arriving, he met a German-speaking barber who was looking for an employee and began working the following day.

He worked as a barber for six years.

Trump lived with his relatives in the Lower East Side of Manhattan in a neighborhood with many Kallstadt immigrants, at 76 Forsyth Street. Because the cost of operating at 76 Forsyth Street was getting expensive, they later moved to 606 East 17th Street and to 2012 2nd Avenue.

In 1891, Trump moved to Seattle, Washington. With his life savings of several hundred dollars, he bought supplies, such as tables, chairs, and a range, and purchased the Poodle Dog, which he renamed the Dairy Restaurant.

Located at 208 Washington Street, the Dairy Restaurant was in the middle of Seattle’s Red Light District; Washington Street was nicknamed “the Line”. It included an assortment of saloons, casinos, and brothels.

Blair, the biographer, called it “a hotbed of sex, booze, and money, was the indisputable center of the action in Seattle.”

The restaurant served food and liquor and was advertised to include “Rooms for Ladies,” a common euphemism for prostitution. Trump lived in Seattle until early 1893 and voted in Washington’s first presidential election in 1892. That same year he became a U.S. citizen.

In 1894, Trump moved to the mining town of Monte Cristo, Washington. Monte Cristo was expected to produce a fortune of gold and silver because evidence of mineral deposits were discovered in 1889. This led to many prospectors moving to the area in hopes of becoming rich.

With  financial investment of billionaire John D. Rockefeller in the entire Everett area creating an exaggerated expectation of the area’s potential.

On February 14, Trump sold the Dairy Restaurant, and in March, he moved to Monte Cristo. Before leaving Seattle, he bought 40 acres  in the Pine Lake Plateau, twelve miles east of the city, for $200, representing the first real estate purchase of the Trump family.

In Monte Cristo, Trump found a plot of land near the train station that he wanted to build a new hotel on, but could not afford the $1,000-per-acre fee to buy it. Instead, he filed a Gold placer claim on the land, which allowed him to claim exclusive mineral rights to the land without having to pay for it.

Even though the land had already been claimed by Everett resident Nicholas Rudebeck. At that time, the US Land Office was known to be corrupt and allowed such activity often. Despite the placer’s claim having given Trump no right to build any structure on the land, Trump quickly bought lumber to build a new hotel and run it similarly to the Dairy Restaurant. He never attempted to mine gold on the land. Blair described Trump as “mining the miners”, since even if they never found any gold, they still needed a place to sleep at night when they were mining.

While running the profitable hotel, Rudebeck filed to merge the land and then sent agents to collect rent in July 1894. Trump finally bought the land in December 1894.

While in Monte Cristo, Trump was elected to office, winning the 1896 election for Justice of the Peace by a 32-to-5 margin.

Years of mining had revealed that there was not nearly as much gold and silver in Monte Cristo than had once been believed, and in August 1894, Rockefeller pulled out of most of his investment in the area, creating the “Everett bubble burst.”

By the spring of 1896, most of the miners had left Monte Kristo, causing a labor shortage and less business for Trump, despite his being one of the few people to make money in Monte Cristo. Trump prepared for the bubble burst by funding two miners in the Yukon in exchange for them staking a claim for him.

In July 1897, the Klondike Gold Rush began with the arrival of boats with gold in San Francisco and Seattle, resulting in thousands of people rushing to the area to make their fortune.

Trump sold off most of his property in Monte Cristo a few weeks later and moved back to Seattle, Washington

Heir to the Throne of King David

Awesome Miracles in 2016 through the prayers of the followers of Eashoa Msheekha(Jesus Messiah), son of Mary, Heir to the Throne of King David, and the King now, with an ever increasing Excellency of the Universes.

Mar Paulus VII
Mar Paulus VII Have you ever read what being Zionist means?
The common denominator among all Zionists is the claim to Eretz Israel as the national homeland of the Jews and as the legitimate focus for Jewish national self-determination. It is based on historical ties and religious traditions linking the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.
Can you see anything wrong with this concept? I mean, really, Archeology knows, Religions knows, Historians know, Medical Science can prove through DNA that descendants of the Tribe of Judah (Yehuda), actually we all know it.

So, all they are asking for is a very small piece of Dirt… Give it to them and shut up the nonsense. Have we gone Mad? Look how quick forever peace would generate. Think about it. Who will they hurt? Are we so afraid of the blessing that is on them from the God?

The Back Story of St. Patrick’s Holy Day

The Back Story of St. Patrick’s Holy Day is very interesting.

Fact vs. Legend

“Does the way we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day have something to do with St. Patrick?

Fact: His father’s name is Calpurnius, and his mother’s name is Conchessa. The parents of St. Patrick were Roman citizens. His father, Calpurnius, is from a Roman family of high rank. Calpurnius is a Decurio. He held the office in jurisdiction of Britain where St. Patrick is born.

His mother, Conchessa, is closely related to St. Martin of Tours. Martin decides to join the Catholic Church at the age of ten. His joining the Christians is against his family wishes. Christianity is not the main religion in Rome at the time.  It is unclear as to how, exactly, Conchessa was related to Martin. However, since she and Martin are family, then that means that Martin is related to St. Patrick in some way.

Conchessa and Calpurnius did not name their son “St. Patrick”. His real name is Maewyn Succat. The Roman version of his name is Patricius.

What were the parents of Patricius doing in Britain?

Calpurnius held the Official appointment of Decurio.

What does decurio mean? One meaning is that Calpurnius is the man in charge of the local council or senate of the colonia where Patricius is born. This title is honorable, including Military rank.

Calpurnius is the Roman official who is in charge of a Roman colony located in Britain. This means that Patricius is born into an Aristocrat’s very wealthy and powerful family.

Some time between the age of 14-16, Patricius was kidnapped. A group of Irish raiders attacked his family’s estate. The Irish marauders sold Patricius as a slave to an Irish chieftain named Milchu. This took place somewhere around where the county of Antrim, in Ireland, is located today. Patricius’s name is by his owners to an Irish name, Patrick.

Patrick becomes a shepherd. He tends his owner’s sheep until age 20. He manages to escape, and returned to his family. Soon after returning home, he begins studying for the priesthood. The rest is history. He never married, and he never had any children.

The experience changes him, and he feels compelled to return to Ireland and change his name to Patrick. Before his return, he is ordained as a Roman Catholic priest. He made it his mission to convert the unbelieving Irish population to belief in the teaching of Jesus. Accomplishing this is very difficult for him. Being beaten, harassed, and misunderstood by his superiors is one of many of his challenges. After he died on March 17, 461, stories about Patrick have continued to be told. Some true, some hearsay.

What does a three leaf clover have to do with St. Patrick?

St. Patrick uses the three-leafed clover to explain the Christian concept of the Oneness of the God. He teaches that a three leaf clover has one stem, as the source of life. The three leaves growing from a single stem, St. Patrick used it to illustrate the understanding of the belief in One God, and the outgrowth from the one stem are three manifestations, God is Creations father, the son of Mary is the human manifestation of the God, and the third leaf represented the manifestation of the Holy Spirit that after the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, was poured out from the God on the Day of Pentecost. A brilliant, simple organic way to help teach the good news. His mission message was received by many of the unbelievers in Ireland.

Today, people celebrating St. Patrick’s Day often wear a shamrock. Botanists consider the trifolium dubium—the wild-growing, three-leaf clover—to be the official shamrock, as it is an annual plant that germinates in the spring. The shamrock is the national flower of Ireland, and the word “shamrock” comes from the Irish word seamróg, meaning “little clover.”

If you are a teacher, a great exercise is having the class go find a four leaf clover.  The actual odds of finding one are estimated at 10,000 to 1.

The Holy Day we remember.

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, the saint’s religious feast day and the anniversary of his death. The Irish have observed this religious holiday for over 1,000 years. Falling during the Christian season of Lent, the day is celebrated in Ireland with worship services in the morning and parties in the afternoon.

When did the modern celebrations have their beginning?

The international modern large celebrations and parades are a relatively new development in Ireland. It wasn’t until after the 1970’s, when the American celebrations of the holiday became popular, that the Irish began to follow suit in an attempt to boost tourism.

Observance of the holiday in the United States began in 1762, when eighteenth-century Irish soldiers fighting with the British in the U.S. Revolutionary War  held the first St. Patrick’s Day parade in New York City. The soldiers marched through lower Manhattan to celebrate their Irish heritage. Other parades followed, including well-known celebrations in Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago, which boasted vibrant communities of Irish immigrants.

Patrick died on March 17, 461. This means that when we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day today, we are actually celebrating on the day that the man, Maewyn Succat, died. It has become the feast day for this saint.

Since that time, American festivities have evolved into a general celebration of Irish culture. Today in the United States, St. Patrick’s Day is typically celebrated with clothing, accessories and decorations colored green and displaying traditional symbols such as the shamrock; parades; foods such as Irish soda bread, corned beef and cabbage; and Guinness® stout (a brand and style of beer associated with Ireland).

 

Come, Fly With Me

 

Holy Writings are full of beautiful metaphors. We recognize the metaphor of “eating” because it’s so common in our speech. You hear such expressions:

“I swallowed his story, hook, line and sinker;” or,
“I swallowed my pride;” or,
“I really liked his ideas; I ate them up.”

Metaphors are common in our speech. How about, “You are the wind beneath my wings.”

It must have been cold there in my shadow, to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that’s your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory, while you were the one with all the strain.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero, and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle, for you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed, but I’ve got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you’re my hero?
You’re everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle, for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you’re my hero?
You’re everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings,
’cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.

Eagles learn to fly without flapping their wings.
So can you. Flying is a decision.

Imagine, enjoying every moment, everyday improving yourself, making your life better, stronger, and peaceful.
If the idea attracts your attention, and you have difficulty believing it is possible, I have intelligence that proves you can.

The eagle builds its nest higher than any other bird. (Type: Carnivore)
