Thanksgiving Mythbusters

Thanksgiving with the Pirates
Early Protestant Experience in America:

This blog was designed for teachers anywhere to develop the ability to unravel the various historical myths that have been built around actual events.

It’s not my intention to ruin people’s holiday. No, not at all.  You can save this for tomorrow, but here’s the story of Thanksgiving in Pirate Land.

By the winter of 1609, extreme drought, hostile relations with members of the local Powhatan Confederacy and the fact that a supply ship had abandoned them, put the Puritan colonists in the other ship in a truly desperate position.  It’s reported that a Baron de Levy is who took off with the supply ship, some claim it was sunk in a storm.

The reason for the hostile relations with the local Powhaten Confederacy, and the local Catholic settlements, is because they had a commission from some corporation or other giving them permission to engage in piracy and establish a slave plantation.  This was true of all the early “Puritan” settlements. Other Catholic settlements nearby were thriving at this time, and this was what attracted the Piratain.  Naturally the Catholic colonists and Indians defended themselves.

Sixteen years later, in 1625, George Percy, who had been president of Jamestown during the Starving Time, wrote a letter describing the colonists’ diet during that terrible winter.

“Haveinge fedd upon our horses and other beastes as longe as they Lasted, we weare gladd to make shifte with vermin as doggs Catts, Ratts and myce…as to eate Bootes shoes or any other leather,” he wrote. “And now famine beginneinge to Looke gastely and pale in every face, thatt notheinge was Spared to mainteyne Lyfe and to doe those things which seame incredible, as to digge upp deade corpes outt of graves and to eate them. And some have Licked upp the Bloode which hathe fallen from their weake fellowes.”

A recent article about an archaeology dig at the earliest Puritan, ‘Piratain’ settlement in America can be found in Smithsonian Magazine, which I quote here:

The researchers used a reconstruction, along with the other data, to determine the specimen was a female, roughly 14 years old (based on the development of her molars) and of British ancestry. Owsley says the cut marks on the jaw, face and forehead of the skull, along with those on the shinbone, are telltale signs of cannibalism. “The clear intent was to remove the facial tissue and the brain for consumption. These people were in dire circumstances. So any flesh that was available would have been used,” says Owsley. “The person that was doing this was not experienced and did not know how to butcher an animal. Instead, we see hesitancy, trial, tentativeness and a total lack of experience.”
He’s probably one of the researchers best qualified to make this judgment. As one of the country’s most prominent physical anthropologists, he’s analyzed many cannibalized skeletons from ancient history, and is an accomplished forensic investigator who works with the FBI.

Other sources report that her name was Rebecca Mullins.  It is interesting to compare this recent archeaological investigation with accepted American textbook history.

The myths built around this event are included in every public school that fosters celebration of this little-known horror.  I found a mythical version which describes how the Pirates, disguised to us as ‘Puritans’ consider and speak of their way of life as a religion.  They use very pious terms to describe their experience of being kicked out of various European territories before resorting to America under pirate commissions of privately funded ‘corporations’.

The New England colonies, set up for the purpose of holding slaves, were prevented from completely pulling this off by various alliances between the first Catholic settlers and many of the Indians tribes, with support from the Catholic Church.

The Pirates have usurped our history by describing their rovings and failures in the following misleading manner,  and putting this in school textbooks:

Myth of Plymouth Colony found in school textbooks [my comments added in brackets and italics]:

The colonization of New England
In order to understand the mindset of the emigrants known today as the Pilgrims as well as their motives for colonization, we must first examine their system of beliefs. One can hardly conduct research into the history of New England without first realizing the extent and importance of its Puritan roots. Puritans, and their radical Separatist counterparts, were a minority in Old England, however they comprised the religious majority in New England. [New England was a tiny part of the Continent, made up of hidden coves where they could establish a pirate haven.  Everyone else was Catholic.]

The Church of England, created by Henry VIII in the sixteenth century, made divorce feasible [like Bergoglio, like the Puritans, they accept impurity, and broken families as a normal state], rejected Latin as the official language of the Church [they are free to mistranslate the scripture], abolished confession [no penance is required for forgiveness of sins, a Phrygian belief], and allowed the clergy to marry [and use the ‘church’ as a front for business] (Bradford 1981: ix). Although these changes were radical for the time, many in England did not feel that they were radical enough. The Puritans wanted to reorganize and simplify the Anglican Church, thus making corruption [their idea of ‘corruption’ is honesty.  Their system has to include only Pirates.] within the Church less likely. They … preferred a body of church elders [the Pirates, church of Piers, a place to sell stolen goods and slaves] to the conventional Church hierarchy (Bradford 1981: x).
English Puritanism borrowed heavily from the theological teachings of Martin Luther and John Calvin, whose philosophies [to exterminate Catholic people] had spread throughout Western Europe during the sixteenth century.

“Puritans followed Luther and Calvin in objecting to the doctrine of Works [They claimed to be God’s Chosen people, they didn’t have to do any good works to achieve that status.]- rejected the submission to Church authority  church ritual…” (Bradford 1981: xi).
Although most Puritans wanted to reform or “purify” the Church of England, a number of groups believed that the Church was irreparable. One such group of Separatists, as they were known, had its roots in the small village of Scrooby, in Nottinghamshire, England. It was in Scrooby, in the year 1607, that a group of people came together to form an illegal separate church after withdrawing from their Anglican parishes. As English citizens were required by law to become members of the Church of England, many of the Scrooby group suffered persecution, in the form of fines and imprisonments [for illegal conduct, unspecified.] (Simmons 1976: 16).

It was for this reason that the Scrooby congregation decided to relocate to Holland, which enforced[in other words, forced on everyone else in the community, against their wishes.] religious toleration in 1608.

William Bradford, who was a member of the group, wrote about this exodus some forty years later in New England:
“Yet seeing themselves thus molested, and that there was no hope of their continuance there, by a joint consent they decided to go into the Low Countries, where they heard was freedom of religion for all men; as also how sundry from London and other parts of the land had been exiled and persecuted for the same cause, and were gone thither, and lived at Amsterdam [where they have left a sad legacy of sex for sale, along with exploitation of young girls who should be virgins, thanks to ‘enforced religious toleration’.] and other places of the land.” (Bradford 1981: 10)
The homeless congregation took a year-long respite in Amsterdam, after which they settled in Leyden, “a fair and beautiful city and of a sweet situation . . .” (Bradford 1981: 16-17).
The group remained in Leyden for eleven years…Dissention grew to the point that the congregation eventually decided to relocate.
Bradford states several reasons for their removal from Holland, among which are the cultural hardships the English group bore in a strange land, as well as the increasing age of many of its members [who were taking very young child brides] (Bradford 1981: 24).
Members of the Leyden congregation ultimately made the decision to leave Holland, but they were uncertain in choosing a new place for habitation. They could not return to England for the same reasons [taking child brides] that had forced their exile into Holland twelve years before.  In their struggle for a new residence, many of the group expressed a new desire “of laying some good foundation . . . for the propagation and advancing the [heretic] gospel of the kingdom of Christ [The first plans for Protestant Missionaries.] in those remote parts of the world [where they were stashing their stolen loot] . . .” (Bradford 1981: 26). This notion was significant and remained a motivation for English emigration into New England for decades to come.
The congregation sent Robert Cushman and John Carver as emissaries to the Virginia Company of London, which was sponsoring the English venture at Jamestown, to apply for land patents within the Company’s vast holdings. The Virginia Company accommodated the group and even granted them a patent, [as they had many other pirates.]

The Leyden assembly favored the support of a group of private backers and adventurers, headed by a London merchant named Thomas Weston. Bradford writes in his history, Of Plymouth [Slave] Plantation,
[T]hey had heard, both by Mr. Weston and others, that sundry Honourable Lords had obtained a large grant from the King for the more northerly parts of that country . . . to be called by another name [given a new name at this point by the Pirates], viz., New England. Unto which Mr. Weston and the chief of them began to incline it was best for them to go . . . for the hope of present profit… (Bradford 1981: 39-40).
Thus the Leyden group acquired a set of sponsors as well as a prospective location for their [slave] plantation.
The Leyden assembly recruited mariners and miscellaneous workers and artisans in London [from the City of London?] and set sail, aboard the Mayflower, on September 6, 1620. Of this group of one hundred and two, known today as the Pilgrims, only thirty-five were actually members of the Leyden congregation (Simmons 1976: 16).

They arrived at Cape Cod on November 19, 1620 but [were chased away by French fishermen] did not find a suitable place to plant their community until the nineteenth of December. They chose a site with a protected harbor and high grounds, suitable for defense [against the colonists and indians who did not want pirates settling their territory], and christened their [slave] plantation New Plymouth, after their last port of call in England. (Heath ed. 1963: 41-42) [Plymouth was well known to be a place where Pirates arrived to unload their stolen cargo which included the sale or ransom of the passengers.  This was common knowledge at the time of Queen Elizabeth, related to the words Peer and Peerage of the English system of heirarchy, the most successful pirates make their way to the top.  When the pirates marry into the families of the Dragomen [According to the Jews, as their history informs us, they were the men who traveled with the ship, who had contacts with receivers of stolen goods at the piers around the world, enabling Pirates to unload their stolen cargo quickly and get paid right at the pier/Peer.  This fact is what was behind not allowing Jews into government positions for many centuries. What followed from vast profits of piracy and slavery, was investment in large factories in Plymouth and other former Pirate piers all over the world.

Both Pirates and Dragomen are all descendants of the Phrygians.  Eventually the prohibition against Jews in government was done away with by order of Queen Victoria.  We’ll take a look at that in another article and see how it relates to Catholics and the Catholic Monarchy.  The Pilgrims/Pillagers-im is Arabic suffix for a group who has the same mother, and Puritans/Piratains/Pirat-im,  were constantly suppressed by the Catholic Monarchs, ever since the Catholic military suppressed the worship of Mythras/Myths.

This will help us to understand who was St. Martin de Tours in the fourth century after Christ’s death, and what he did to merit his veneration worldwide for almost 2000 years. The freeing of slaves by the Christians is tied into this event, because the Phrygians had been the captors, owners and the middlemen of the slave system. Their income depended on the system of Piracy/Pieratje, and they considered it their right and liberty to continue.  The only thing stopping them was the unity of the armies of the Catholic Monarchy.] 

Historian R.C. Simmons writes, “The arrival of the Pilgrims in Plymouth . . . marked the beginning of a voluntary movement of religiously discontented persons to America, a movement that would swell to a flood in the late 1620’s and the 1630’s” (Simmons 1976: 17).

This is around the time that the area of Acadia and St. Louis/Louisbourg were claimed by the Pirates, when the Catholic settlers were populating the Ohio River Valley and fortified areas all the way down the Mighty Mississippi River.

The pirates and their English allies at the time of the American Revolution reported that even British and colonial ‘rangers’  which is what they call their highway robbers, could not get past the forests that separated the coastal pirates from the Catholic settlers along the interior rivers. The only way to the interior was by river, where forts prevented entry, and it is the control of these forts that is the real history of America. Other Puritan/Piratain communities eagerly followed the example of the Pilgrims, who were buying stolen goods at rock bottom prices at New England piers all along the coast of America. (Bradford 1981: 26).

The Pilgrims left England primarily to escape “religious persecution” by the early Stuart rulers who objected to their piracy, however, other “Puritan groups came to the New World with the hope of fulfilling a greater purpose”, which was total take-over of the land and government, enslavement of the Catholics, and destruction of the Roman Catholic Church. “Their ‘peculiar mission’ was to establish the true Christian [enslaved] commonwealth [continuous source of pirated wealth for the Phrygians] that would thenceforth serve as a model for the rest of the Christian world” (Greene 1988: 21).

The Stuarts returned to the throne, represented by James I of England, and issued proclamations for the capture of pirates starting from the year 1604. This was the first item on their agenda. The names Henry Radcliffe, William Smith and John Banister are repeatedly listed, along with many other familiar names, and 20 known pirate ships as marked for capture.  Each of several proclamations of James I of England were like this one before 1625:

The King Majesty has been informed of the many depredations and piracies committed by lewd and ill disposed persons, accustomed and habituated to spoile ad rapine, insensible and desperate of the peril they draw on themselves, and the imputation they cast upon the honor of their Sovereign so precious to him, as for redresse he is forced to reiterate and inculcate [Latin inculcatus, past participle of inculcare, literally, to tread on, from in- + calcare to trample, from calc-, calx heel. First Known Use: 1539]  his loathing and detestation.

This was the point where private commissions for piracy began.  Merchants, anyone with money to invest, could fit out a pirate ship and commission the sailors to attack only Catholic merchants, and this is what they did.  Generally speaking, the money for these investments was stolen.  One certificate found hidden in an old Dutch orphanage recently shows that the orphan child’s property was sold and invested in a corporation for piracy and establishment of a slave colony in New England.
