>>> HAVING WON MY LOCAL COURT BATTLES yesterday in principle (if not yet in the details), it's time to get on to something BIGGER like (metaphorically) behonkus-fingering the WEALTHIEST MAN ON EARTH -- and who better to do it than Wilmington, NC's WEIRDEST new resident, me???
I mean since Gen. James Kenan led the first armed resistance to The Crown over the hated Stamp Act on the banks of the Cape Fear River here, so effectively began the American Revolutionary War in Wilmington, we might as well escalate the Second American Revolution (a cleansing revolution -- not an overthrow of government) from Wilmington too!!!
Take THAT, you ignorant so-called Tea-Party Republicans -- YOUR gig is UP. I have EXPOSED not only your being too stupid to know what started that war (meaning you are IGNORANTLY NAMED), but you're just a bunch of TRAITORS to Liberty as well!!!
Col. William R. Kenan (Sr.) of the Duplin Rifles was the ONLY Confederate to penetrate deep into Washington, DC and take a shot at President Lincoln. Whether Lincoln was wearing his or his wife's to-him ridiculously-fitting clothes at the time (and I won't belabor this now, or the fact that he slept sexually with his chief adjutant when Mary Todd was out of town -- which she often was -- all reported copiously in the press then in clear and teasing ways), Lincoln was missed, but his bodyguard killed.
And I won't belabor how he later went on the upend Wilmington with the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot -- THE MOST UNDER-REPORTED VIOLENT, RACIST-RUN EVENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY, or it's WORSE consequence, the enactment of all the Jim Crow Laws across the South, which it directly inspired and emboldened. Suffice it to say that KENANS are effective, regardless whether on the right or the wrong side of things.
You can SEE where I'm going here, and how the modern Republican Party (or at least ALLOWED leadership) is the DIRECT DESCENDANT of William R. Kenan and his Racist Mob. Today, they revoke rights from women, disenfranchise minority voters, accumulate wealth to the VERY FEW, KILL education, PROMOTE drug therapies for EVERYTHING, and deny rights to homosexuals -- which most of them ARE (but secretly -- this is called the "Illuminati Oath" of secrecy and absolute submission to Authority and Approved Opinion). and yes, Wilmington, NC -- THE GAYEST CITY IN AMERICA --AS WELL AS THE WEALTHIEST -- is ground zero to them. I guess that is why I was somehow led to live here.
Well, I got them good.
Google in my blog for details of everything I write without sufficient detail today.
Now, before going forward, I'd like to establish Kenan wealth credentials a little further -- starting with a reminder that this SAME New York Times reported after Henry Flagler died and Mary Lily Kenan Flagler received her inheritance from him, that she was the WEALTHIEST WOMAN ON EARTH -- which was probably a serious under-statement, given how good both Flagler and the Kenans already were at hiding their holdings.
>>> BUT WAIT!!!: When the government properly broke up the Standard Oil Trust all that Kenan-owned stock (more than Rockefellers got and now existing as proportionate shares of all the derivative companies) DOUBLED IN VALUE on average in one year during the Great Depression -- because the pubic LOVED that government action and so drove the stock prices up!!!
And I'm not even going to belabor here Flagler's Florida Development fortune or what later Kenans inherited from Frank Hawkins, the man who put the Phoenix in Atlanta.
And here is something I accidentally found this morning regarding Mary Lily's brother, William R. Kenan JR. I'm guessing that he inherited about half from his sister and made the rest on his own:
There is no way to guarantee that this list (a list of known wealthiest individuals in the US) of forty-two exhausts all individuals with inherited holdings, improved or unimproved, of $75 million or more. The list is probably incomplete even within the terms laid down by Fortune. Thus, not included on it was William Rand Kenan, who died July 28, 1965, aged ninety-three, leaving an estate for probate tentatively estimated at $100 million. He was a founder of the Union Carbide Company. 2 That the Kenans were no financial midgets is attested by the fact that William Rand Kenan, Jr., is at present chairman of the board of the Niagara County National Bank and Trust Company; president of the Peninsular and Occidental Steamship Company, the Florida East Coast Railway Company, the Florida East Coast Hotel Company, the Florida East Coast Car Ferry Company, the Model Land Company, Perrine Grant Land Company, West Palm Beach Water Company, Carolina Apartment Company and Western Block Company; and a director of various other companies including the Florida Power and Light Company. So many presidencies suggest large personal holdings."
So. Kenan wealth is at the TOP of this expose as it goes into wealth of those NOT generally known to have it.
I'd like to point out also that the $100 million is reported in 1965 dollars (so do the math for current), but consider also that Kenans are INCREDIBLE BUSINESS PEOPLE, and have grown their wealth now mostly held in the self-owning Charitable Trusts which they continue to control FAR FASTER than the rate of inflation.
Also consider that various OTHER Kenans own/owned VAST WEALTH not even related to all of this -- and William R. Kenan Jr. was HARDLY the only heir of Mary Lily -- he didn't even inherit anything NEAR HALF of her wealth!!!
So yes, although I didn't inherit any of this money and was even so broke that half a year ago I lived five days under the Fourth Street Bridge, two weeks various places on the First Presbyterian Church property (with the knowledge of Pastor Ernie Thompson), and about ten days on the side porch of St. Mary's Catholic Church.
Since then, things have improved for me bother financially and legally -- wouldn't you say???
I DO hope ALL my Gentle Readers -- regardless any differences we may have had in the past -- will join with me and the Greater Kenan Family as we go forward RE-ESTABLISHING the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION as the supreme Law of the Land.
GOD RULES, regardless where it is worshiped or how -- and in what form, so let's not argue about that now. Also, this clap-trap about the Founding Fathers (who were nearly all Masons and Deists -- look them up) being in ANYWAY philosophically related to what is generally known as Evangelical Christianity is about as far from the truth as one can get.
That is the BIGGEST LIE promulgated by the coagulation of closet buggers that have hijacked the Grand Old Party.
So GIRD YOUR LOINS, and we will continue the battle UNDER GOD (Buddha, Allah, Krishna, MIND, nothingness, or whatever -- and of course including the popular Hebrew Prophet known as Jesus).
Enough for now.
