You and he were the only two, infinitely different, people, who didn't approach me as if I had been a precious object in a collection, an ivory carving or a piece of Chinese porcelain. That's why I have kept you in my memory so well. As to him---I soon learned to regret I was not some object, some beautiful, carved object of bone or bronze; a rare piece of porcelain, _p te dure,_ not _p te tendre._ A pretty specimen.'' ``Rare, yes Tutankhamen: Amenism, Atenism and Egyptian Monotheism. But mine is a different problem from that white-haired humbug of yours. He has scores to settle with half a dozen people, he says, and he clamours for revolutions to give him a chance.''

The term “Jew,” therefore, is a term used to designate the Israelites at the time of their captivity, as former citizens of the Kingdom of Judah; it should no longer be used, since the time of the captivity ended. “Israelites” is the name by which they are called by YHVH, and is the name by which they called themselves; “Israelites” is an unchanging, inviolate designation of blood (indicating a descendant of Jacob/Israel) which cements the covenants with God, and “Jew” is apolitical designation indicating one’s status during the captivity The First Men of Rome - The Gracchi, Marius & Sulla (Illustrated).

According to one measure, Sparky Sweet�s device was 100,000,000% "efficient," which was slightly over the threshold for classifying it.� Sparky never patented his device and kept it proprietary, which avoided seizure that way, but that leads to other problems .� Thousands of energy technology inventors have had their patented devices seized under the national security laws, and that is merely the tip of the iceberg of what has been suppressed.� Wh at led to Steven Greer's pursuit of FE was when he met with a faction of the GCs in the early 1990s.� In 2004, I heard Greer report on his conversations with them; one disclosure was that the GCs had paid $100 billion in bribes and quiet money to sequester disruptive technologies over the years, and energy technologies above all.� When I heard Greer say that, it made perfect sense to me, as Dennis rejected two offers that I know of, and I even heard of others in casual conversations with corporate co-workers and plenty of other such tales from people in the field.� Greer claimed to have rejected a $2 billion offer to cease his efforts.� That quiet money amount might be $200 billion by now. � Those t aking the money have donned the �Golden Handcuffs,� as that money bought their silence and their technology was usually shelved; the �seller� was usually unaware of the true nature of the �sale.�� But even Golden Handcuffs are a fair ways down the path of organized suppression tactics .� The GCs� bag of tricks is deep, and many low-cost strategies can be tried before they resort to using Golden Handcuffs; they can also use the patent office to seize technologies and, in the relatively rare instance, violence.� We received the first friendly buyout offer soon after we began pursuing FE, and the offer escalated by a couple orders of magnitude before they began playing rough.� Kangarooing Dennis into prison and making �mistakes� that put him in with murderers is one of many techniques at their disposal.� Such treatment can often be free-lance malice engaged in by �public servants� and other Establishment figures, without their needing instruction or compensation by the GCs, or even being aware of the evil interests that their actions serve.� They probably would not even care if they knew, and many would solicit �employment� if they knew how valuable their activities were to rich and powerful interests, no matter if those activities eventually made Earth uninhabitable (as long as it happened after they died or were �guaranteed� a berth in the GCs� survival enclaves ) The History of Ancient Rome: Book III: From the Union of Italy to the Subjugation of Carthage and the Greek States.
