The relationship between Mormonism and Freemasonry began early in the life Joseph Smith, founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, as his older brother Hyrum and possibly his father were Freemasons while the family lived near Palmyra, New York. Nevertheless, in the late 1820s, the western New York region was swept with anti-Masonic fervor, and the Book of Mormon, a foundational sacred text published by Smith in 1830, describes plots of murder and theft by conspirators acting under an ancient, secret oath.
By the 1840s, however, Smith and several prominent Latter Day Saint had become Freemasons and founded a lodge in Nauvoo, Illinois, in March 1842. Soon after joining Freemasonry, Smith introduced a temple endowment ceremony including a number of symbolic elements that were essentially the same as their analogues within Freemasonry. Smith remained a Freemason until his death; however, later leaders in the movement have distanced themselves from Freemasonry. In modern times, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), the predominant Latter Day Saint sect, holds no position for or against the compatibility of Masonry with LDS Church doctrine.

In late Greek mythology as developed in Ptolemaic Alexandria, Harpocrates (Ancient Greek: Ἁρποκράτης) is the god of silence, secrets and confidentiality. Harpocrates was adapted by the Greeks from the Egyptian child god Horus. To the ancient Egyptians, Horus represented the newborn Sun, rising each day at dawn. When the Greeks conquered Egypt under Alexander the Great, they transformed the Egyptian Horus into their Hellenistic god known as Harpocrates, a rendering from Egyptian Har-pa-khered or Heru-pa-khered (meaning “Horus the Child”).

The problems that are happening in America right now is because the Liberal Agenda has been shaming us for being Proud of our Country. The Fascists are on the Left using Psychological Warfare in order to intimidate everyone into agreeing with them. American Nationalism & Populism can never become Fascism because American Values are antithetical to Totalitarianism. The Fascists are those that hate out Nation, those that don’t want to defend our Borders and those that want to come to our country but not Integrate, become one of us, and adopt our values. Now you have moved so far towards the Loony Left in order to keep your Zombie Cult from supporting Trump that the Liberal Progressives are now actively attempting to recruit them to Vote for Hillary. How smart do you feel now Dumbass?
As a psycholinguist, & a profiler I can tell you that even Pathologically lying Psychopaths won’t lie overtly if they don’t have to. They instead use different strategies to deflect, change the subject, or dismiss the question. We are going to examine Ted Cruz’ interesting response to the suggestion that his father knew Lee Harvey Oswald.
Ted Cruz first says, “This man is a Pathological Liar.” Not a denial. He is attacking the character of the person who brought up the subject. Trump merely asked why Ted Cruz hadn’t responded to the article in The National Enquirer and what was the nature of the relationship between Lee Harvey Oswald and Rafael Eduardo Cruz Senior. I can tell you personally that I ran across this photo and this question MONTHS before it was published in the Enquirer. Ted Cruz continues, “Donald’s source for this is the National Enquirer. The Enquirer is tabloid trash.” Not a denial. This is a tacit appeal to the character of the magazine, it isn’t an assertion that his father wasn’t an associate of Oswald’s. “Donald Trump alleges that my dad was involved in assassinating JFK.” Not a denial. And this is in fact not what Donald Trump said.
“Now let’s be clear, this is nuts. This is not a reasonable position, this is just cooky. While I’m at it I guess I should admit, ‘Yes my dad killed JFK, he is secretly Elvis, and Jimmy Hoffa is buried in the back yard.'” The first statement is what caught my attention. This appears to be a Lying technique known as “Telling the Truth Falsely.” The Liar sarcastically or humorously tells the truth as though he was exaggerating a Falsehood. Upon closer examination you realize that he isn’t mocking specifically what Donald Trump said. The accusation was that Rafael Cruz Senior knew Lee Harvey Oswald and that begs the question what the nature of their relationship was. The next two assertions are intentionally absurd and they are intended to invite people to assume that the first assertion is equally absurd. This is known as the Fundamental Attribution Error or thinking in terms of essences. The Absurd-ness of the last to hyperboles is supposed to taint the first subject. I have stated before that Ted Cruz is supposed to be a World Class debater but I have only ever seen him use his alleged intellectual prowess to manipulate people and obfuscate the issue, I have never seen him use it to clarify the issue or even really to educate people. He is one of the most strategic and manipulative communicators I have ever seen and he takes fiendish, vindictive, delight in what he considers his Mind-blowing turn of phrase and his rapier wit. Hoist with his own Petard he finally went full Retard and jumped the Shark. 🙂
I think his Campaign later issued a denial shortly before he suspended his campaign. Later in that same press conference he quoted Donald and suggested that had Sexually Transmitted Diseases, which was the exact opposite of the point Trump was making. He went on to suggest that Trump “is an unapologetic serial philanderer.” Which leads the listener to believe that Donald is CURRENTLY cheating on his wife and conflates Young Donald Trump with Mature Donald Trump and demonstrates an ignorance of how time works. I might also point out that Ted Cruz could not state that he had always been faithful to Heidi Cruz he instead had the Bride of Frankenstein, Carly Fiorina interrupt and hijack the conversation. Assuming that Cruz has indeed cheated on Heidi that would mean the difference between himself and his accusation is that he, Ted Cruz, has apologized for his Philandering and that would mean only that he admitted it to Heidi, but that doesn’t mean the events cease to exist. Which in turn means Ted Cruz is concealing those happenstances or intentionally lying about their occurrence because he feels that the Lord (Himself, because he has a Messiah Complex & Delusions of Grandeur) has forgiven him for his shortcomings.
I know that you know who I am Ted. When you idiot friend kicked me out of your crappy G+ group you started lurking my blog and using my talking points. If you wanted me on your team you should have offered me a job instead of plagiarizing my philosophical calculus. I bet you wish you hadn’t underestimated me now, don’t you? 😉
You are using the Fundamental Attribution Error to characterize Donald Trump the Politician with Donald Trump the Successful Businessman. Furthermore, you are presupposing that Donald Trump is the cause of the Bad and the reason that Politicians are Corrupt, please prove your stupid, incorrect, presupposition.
You keep on saying nothing untoward is going on but you are lying.
If you aren’t Intelligent enough to be incensed with Righteous Wrath at what Reince Priebus (Rancid Penis) and the GOP are doing let me give you some reasons. Reince says that the GOP needs to be transparent with voters, they made Donald Trump sign a pledge to support whoever got the nomination, and they said that all of the rules are published for each state that explains how their Delegate Process works as voted on by that State. They suggested Donald Trump was somehow Stupid because he isn’t smart enough to read and figure out how the Delegate Voting process works for each state but “Ted” Cruz isn’t himself reading all of those rules, the GOP is connecting him with Republican Leaders in every state that know how to Exploit the Arbitrary rules in order to create a disparate impact in their own favor.
One of the Major premises of the Declaration of Independence was that there should be NO Taxation without Representation. Lying Ted Cruz says that Donald Trump supporters are low information voters. Newt Gingrich says that the GOP Establishment doesn’t like Donald Trump because he’s not a part of their Secret Society, Newt is correct. So, if the American People elect their Representatives what does the Delegate process tell us? In order to answer that question we have to look at the Philosophical Calculus of Test Validity. What is the Unanimous Delegate vote for “Ted” Cruz actually testing for??? It should be representing the General Will of the Citizenry who elected them to be their Representatives. Instead what we find is instead of being a BOTTOM UP Representation of the Will of the People it is instead a TOP DOWN Representation of the Will of the GOP which is Synonymous with Tyranny & Taxation without Representation which, as we know, is grounds for Revolution.
