Note from the author: The following is an 8 part series examining Republican Mitt Romney like you’ve never seen him before. His family founded the Mormon religion on the shores of America and he’s a royal figure in this specifically political church. While some have been misled it’s just another form of Christianity or that Mitt is merely a volunteer, may this serve as an eye opener and I highly recommend sitting firmly before reading. Latter Day Saints are a powerful business empire and professional lobby in pursuit of theocratic control. Written in their tenets is the goal of becoming President and it’s one they’ve long sought after, to rule the people in a literal “government of (their) God”. It’s a long read yes, but it’s the only way to look at all the issues that range from blatant racism to anti-Semitism and nuclear warheads championed by the Church that have implications in today’s conflict with Iran. Bank fraud, anti-trust lawsuits, gay rights and control of the food industry are a few more surprises you’ll find along the way. Please be patient as the facts unfold, but if you’re anxious to see where it’s heading – links to parts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 can be found at the bottom. In the final entry you’ll see disturbing references to the Holocaust and I forewarn my Jewish friends with heartfelt caution… it will not be easy to absorb. Same with my Indian and African American friends as you’ll observe throughout the entire series. It’s fraught with white supremacy that I do not support or condone. If we don’t speak up about this hatred though, no one will ever know to stop it. Moreover you’ll see how these beliefs translate to Mitt’s policies and that includes the strategy to deny minorities the right to vote. If you thought Republicans had strong support for Israel then you need to read this more than anyone. Once these issues are addressed you’ll observe a pattern of socialism for CEOs. When Mr. Romney was speaking about the 47 percent it was coming straight from a Mormon playbook and his duty to represent their interests is a priority far above the country. I can only summarize so much in a prologue and I hope you’ll stick with it to learn the truth beyond excessive spin in the headlines. If you’re hesitant to believe, then wait till you see what really happened to PBS and other things we never could have imagined. ***Please accept these are rough notes for a greater project and there may be language errors.
We’re about to embark on a journey to discover the makings of Mitt Romney, unlike any opportunity presented to us before. This is a backstage pass to view the presidential hopeful; unscripted, unedited and intimate as the utterings one might only whisper to the family dog. To facilitate the explanation of a tremendously complex businessman, this process must be patient and broken into segments.
Some material you may have seen before but most has managed to thrive in obscurity and few have sought to connect the myriad of loose ends with Mitt’s unwavering “no comment”. You’ll have to trust it’s all relevant until the eureka moments have a chance to percolate and by the end, no one can say this is simply a critique of faith.
The legend of Mitt is steeped in polygamy, misogyny, racism, anti-Semitism, corporatocracy, government and war. It is no easy task to explain these things and I caution against making assumptions until the repercussions can make themselves fully known.
To begin we must accept the arduous task of illuminating Mitt’s religious royalty. While constitutional rights ensure freedom of religion that is not the issue, nor would I try to make it one. What’s at stake is a conflict of interest between corporate tables of a global nature, a caveat regarding theo-democracy and the public’s equal right to be separated between church and state.
Republicans will accuse, “Oppression! Discrimination!” but I assure you this is not. The term religious royalty is just a good publicist’s way of cleansing plenty the campaign couldn’t otherwise dilute. If the Pope, Muhammad or Jesus was running to be the President of America, it would surely present an ethical conundrum. Therefore when the equivalent of a Mormon faith attempts the same, we’re tasked with answering a slew of questions they would rather pay millions to suppress.
In a calculated act of deceit, the prodigy downplayed his place in the church as simple and kind-hearted volunteerism. Upon examining the Romney legacy as Prophets, Apostles and founders of this religion though, it becomes clear Mitt the King-God is ascending exactly as the family instructed.
It may not be common knowledge but both his maternal and paternal makers partnered as architects of the new religion. It was the first unique doctrine to be patented in America or the western hemisphere for that matter; throughout the 1830’s between New York, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois and finally Utah. It has no ancient roots and although any campaigner will tell you it’s Christian oriented, there is no religion like it and Christians who understand the tenets are some of the most vocal dissenters of Mormonism.
Recognized churches have denounced the practice as blasphemy and others teach it is a cult. That kind of in-depth knowledge is only shared by worshipers who attend Bible study and may explain why Republicans have been successful in equating Mormonism with Christianity. (Even if you’re not religious, the importance of this information will become apparent as the series transitions to business deals.)
With that said, Mormon creation begins with a fellow by the name of Joseph Smith Jr receiving a vision in the burnt out boroughs of New York at the age of seventeen. It was a time of religious excitement where revivals were commonplace and so was the practice of religious folk magic. In that regard Joseph earned extra income as a treasure hunter, by divining with seer stones he claimed to be sacred and powerful. The skill in using them comes from placing the stone in a top hat, sticking your face inside and waiting to receive the rock’s prophecy. Don’t forget this is the early days of pioneers and his whole family was employed by the same craft.
Among the fervor Smith claimed to receive a revelation from an angel named Moroni, to unearth a set of golden plates that had long been hidden near his home in Cumorah, NY. In September 1827 at the age of twenty-one, he reported to finally locate these relics along with a pair of holy seer stones that were needed to decode the inscriptions. In official Mormon collections, it is also said he employed a necromancer to aid in pinpointing the treasure’s location. (LDS Journal of Discourses by Brigham Young 1855, The Priesthood and Satan, pgs. 180-181, includes access to the church’s original scanned document). Necromancers are known today by those who play video games as the undead, those who talk to the dead and that hasn’t changed much since the time of Joseph Smith.
In any event these plates would become what is known as the Book of Mormon and young Joseph was directed as God’s newest Prophet to translate and deliver this substantially amended update to the more commonly accepted Bible. Although Latter Day Saints (LDS) still support his assertion the plates were written in Reformed Egyptian, there are no scholars in the world who will confirm the existence of what has become a Mormon concocted language. It was only known to Smith and is believed only by Mormon followers. According to the Bible it is also sacrilege to add new pages, but Mormons claim they’re the chosen few with divinity enough to change it. Right or wrong, here or there; this presents a sticking point in identifying oneself as Christian.
Despite popular resistance, Mr. Smith would continue translating the plates by harnessing magical stones left behind by the angels. As he would see the words they would immediately disappear, so no one could steal or share in the gift of prophecy. He kept the project secret and only business colleagues like the necromancer would provide testament to the plates’ existence. Nevertheless this work would be promoted as a sister to the Bible and depicted brave new examples like setting the real Garden of Eden in the heart of Jackson County, Missouri.
Signing on early was Mitt’s great-great grandfather Parley P. Pratt, as the founder and first editor of the faith’s official newspaper, Millennial Star. In this position he would devise marketing and communications to establish the new church in both England and America. Parley was quickly endowed as one of the first twelve Apostles and wrote many of the hymns still sung by congregations today.
Mitt’s great-great uncle Orson Pratt would also take the helm of communications. His most celebrated contributions came from editing the Book of Mormon and as a settler of the State of Utah. He created what became the modern day odometer, to measure wagon wheel revolutions upon mapping the Mormon Trail. His plotting was integral to avoid the army’s Oregon path, since this family of Mormon was attempting to flee the country.
The United States was only partially settled and mostly to the east. Both men on the Romney maternal side would play leading roles in the Vanguard Company, which was known to most as a Mormon militia intent on claiming new lands, so they could be left alone to rule their own theocracy. The only problem was they believed in violence to overthrow rules of the federal government and forced their beliefs on inhabitants whether they liked it or not.
First these Saints along with young Joseph Smith, settled in Kirtland, Ohio to colonize new towns for Mormon followers and their special beliefs. One of the greatest bones of contention with neighbours that drove the founding group from New York, was the doctrine of polygamy dearly held as a condition of reaching God-dom. Great-great grandpa Parley kept 12 wives and great-great uncle Orson kept 10 wives, as leaders within the church and affirmation of their Apostle duties. According to the University of Utah, it was Orson who promoted the practice so vigorously that he took to editing polygamy into sermons and the official covenant.
Amid the early hubbub, Mitt’s maternal ancestors visited England and converted great-great grandpa Miles Romney on the paternal side as well. Orson was the mission president, Parley fulfilled a similar calling and they found value in Romney’s devout skills as a carpenter. He was quickly absorbed into the hierarchy and brought to America with the other half of the family, where he would go on to build the first Mormon temples and a sacred residence for the church president.
What the founding family taught defies all logical explanation. Controversial highlights from Latter Day Saints include revelations that hinge on establishing America as a parallel Holy Land to that of Israel. Independence, Missouri is considered the new Jerusalem and if Bishop Mitt Romney was your teacher, you’d learn that Jesus is the brother of Satan (second entry, official LDS church) and the Archangel Michael is really Adam, the creator of all Christian humans. Adam and Eve were sent by Elohim from the planet Kolob to purposely eat the forbidden fruit, so they could transform into humans and give birth to men-Gods of which the Romney family occupies the upper echelon.
They believe Jews murdered Jesus rather than the Romans and not only that, but Jews are condemned to Lucifer’s minions if they don’t convert to Mormonism to repent for the greatest sin. (LDS Journal of Discourses by Brigham Young 1854, Spiritual Gifts & Hell, pgs. 142-143, includes access to church’s original scanned document.) Furthermore Jews are considered so vile, they’re believed to shed their sinfully marked colour to become “a white and delightsome people” if successfully rescued from Judaism.
Should they not accept Joseph Smith as the Prophet and fully absorb his American scripture, Mormons continue to preach that non converted Jews will receive the harshest punishment come the day of reckoning. At that time Saints in the Romney clan will build the new temple for Christ’s Second Coming, at the contested Temple Mount in Jerusalem while usurping it from both Jews and Muslims to become the righteous rulers.
Mitt’s founding Apostle/Uncle Orson elaborates more in a famous sermon that became part of the church’s official study guide to support the cornerstones of scripture. He prophesized Mormons will build that temple as the pure seed of God and inherit their desert Eden back from the evil rulers of Israel. This will complement the more bountiful Eden already bestowed to them in America, which they also address as their gift of milk and honey meted straight from the hand of Jesus. Essentially all the world will belong to Mormons as the only ones worthy of wielding God’s power. (Journal of Discourses by Uncle Orson Pratt 1877, pgs. 18-20, Revelation Gradual, Volume 19.)
I can safely say no other religion believes these things and my confusion was warranted when Netanyahu endorsed his modern day Mormon ruler for President of America.
In the second installment we’ll look at the founding of a truly theo-democratic state and why so many Mormons are compelled to seek this office, as ingrained by certified doctrine and the example set by Joseph Smith. The tenets of Mormon theocracy will be explored and how far the Romneys would go to protect their place will reveal itself throughout history.
In the meantime great strides were made in linguistics and this award winning documentary that debunks the translation of Mormon, took number one at a great many film festivals. Behold, the Lost Book of Abraham:
