Standard Oil, 1904 from Puck magazine
To begin much more mundanely, I learned this morning that my former roommate is living in a homeless shelter and expects to pick up the rest of his personal belongings today. "Testosteroni" is ecstatic, and hopes I have enough cigarette lighters to give him a bunch.
Meanwhile, my neighbor downstairs and I are QUITTING cigarettes when current supplies run out. As I type this, we each have four cigs to our names. I figure I learned to put up with six heart medications, so I can quit despite "tension levels" remaining high (my politics, NOT domestic situation).
Revolutionary War General James Kenan and his home, now a museum:
Mary Lily Kenan married Henry Flagler at Liberty Hall.
Three Kenan brothers landed at Wilmington, North Carolina in the 1730s, and Thomas Kenan's branch soon came to prominence by clear-cutting Southeast North Carolina's virgin pine forests using three operations with at least 300 African slaves, each. The Kenan Family was the WORLD'S largest supplier of naval stores (pitch, turpentine, and tar), before the American Revolution, and co-founded UNC Chapel Hill in 1789 -- inventing the world's FIRST Public University (and named the Tar Heels sports teams after their first fortune).
A few Kenan Involvements in US History:
Several blood Kenans (typically blood Kenans have DIFFERENT surnames, due to a VERY high percentage of Kenan men being homosexuals, while the women tend to be straight), were signers of the Articles of Confederation, the PRE-Constitution until the Constitution was passed and signed.
Arguably, the Kenans -- who had spread out across North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas -- with great ties to Virginia and Tennessee as well -- by elected position and economic position were the GREATEST FORCE for the South Seceding.
The Duplin Rifles (Kenansville, NC is in Duplin County), were the TOP sharpshooters in the Confederate Army, and were HALF-comprised of Kenans:
The ORIGINAL book, The Kenan Family, 1967, can be accessed online. In it, I am listed in the index as Scott DANIEL (rather than David), Kenan, but it is correct in the body of the book:
The ACTUAL (historic) Kenan Coat of Arms
The wealthy branch of the Kenan Family (coinciding with the 1967 release of the book), MADE UP this coat of arms -- still in widespread use -- ESPECIALLY by various Kenan Charities and Think Tanks, but it is just MODERN MARKETING and if you know the symbols and colors of Heraldry, you will NOT find a "higher" Coat of Arms!!!
The Kenans ALSO claim a long, distinguished, blue-blood line from Thomas's wife's blood, but Marie DeLamar -- best genealogist in the world, then, and hired by the Kenans to update the book, PROVED they do NOT have it, but they ACT LIKE IT NONETHELESS. This 1999 edition, published in hardcover by Mercer University Press is available for purchase several places online.
STRANGELY, my sister-in-law Gail (Godley) Kenan, and my nephews and niece DO have this line from North Carolina Royal Governor Johnston -- LOL!!!
William Rand Kenan, Sr. -- who as a member of Duplin Rifles was the ONLY Confederate credited with getting through Washington, DC defenses, and taking a clear shot at President Lincoln. He missed and killed his aide. Then this same Kenan eventually became head of the Customs House in Wilmington, NC -- the largest and wealthiest city in the state, still, but a Republican President REPLACED Kenan with a BLACK MAN and ALL HELL SOON BROKE OUT.
Wilmington, until then majority black and a "Cultural Oasis" with black folk owning about half the town's businesses and elected offices, white "Christians" didn't like this and William R. Kenan, Sr. -- an Elder then at First Presbyterian -- with that church in lead and most other white Christian churches part of it, they murdered or chased off hundreds and hundreds of blacks, stole or destroyed their businesses -- and their political offices.
This was the ONLY SUCCESSFUL Coup d'Etat in US History -- led by KENANS!!!
When the Edmund Pettus Bridge was the site of BLOODY SUNDAY in 1965, Selma, Alabama, was DOMINATED by the Kenan Family.
More recently with John Lewis and Bernie Sanders with his wife and daughter
The famous Dan Kenan House in Selma, Alabama
Undated photo of University of North Carolina governing board -- probably early 1970s -- showing James Graham Kenan seated in dark suit, his brother Frank Hawkins Kenan to the left of him, and Thomas S. Kenan III standing thick-haired behind him.
As a funny note, Frank Hawkins Kenan and his family had also lived in Atlanta when Tennessee Williams's close friend (whose son was TW's only Godson, Episcopal), Kate (Schweppe) Sharp Moldawer, eventually McNamara, grew up in Atlanta -- CLOSE personal friends of Frank and "Uncle Jimmy" Kenan and their families. THIS is where "Texas Kate" learned how to act like the richest woman on earth -- the gist of the character "Babe" in Tennessee Williams's last play, In Masks Outrageous and Obscure.
Babe was the wealthiest woman on earth, held in an unreal world of make believe by "Gideons" (Bible-thumpers), and married to a silent, tall black guy, "Mac", a homosexual. And THAT character, Mac, is said to be based on me. So Tennessee Williams's last play had MUCH TO DO WITH KENANS, no???
And for the RECORD, the only MAJOR GRANT Tennessee Williams ever received was from the Rockefeller Foundation -- so he's VERY "Standard Oil", no???
Texas Kate sat next to Tennessee when he got his Kennedy Center Honors in 1979 (before the honorees sat in the back balcony). Behind Tennessee's head is his mother, Edwina, who died a year later at age 99, then his sister Rose (who had had the SECOND pre-frontal lobotomy ever performed in the USA), and then his cousin Jim Williams, whom I knew back then.
Rex Tillerson, CEO of Kenan-controlled Exxon-Mobil
Lee Raymond, most previous CEO of Exxon-Mobil
ExxonMobil execs among Trump cabinet considerations
. . . and it is for SECRETARY OF STATE!!!
1. The Kenan Family (according to a recently retired Exxon-Mobil exec I had a long discussion with in a Carl's Jr. in Puerto Vallarta in January 2015), worked with BOTH the CIA and the Hillary Clinton State Department to put Enrique Pena Nieto into power as President of Mexico.
The two homosexual Presidents admire each other!!!
EVERYONE in Mexico knows that Pena Nieto -- despite his trophy wife and many children -- is GAY -- like President Obama (also well known in Mexico).
Obama gave AT LEAST one of Pena Nieto's former male lovers Political Asylum -- because Enrique had thrown him in JAIL for talking about their sex.
2. President Pena Nieto soon changed the Mexican Constitution so that the Kenans/Exxon-Mobil and others could AGAIN get Mexican Oil.
3. President Pena Nieto saw to it that the Kenans, Clintons and CIA, US State Department, Episcopal Church USA, and others got the HARD DRUGS flowing from or through Mexico!!!
4. In summer of 2016, Candidate Donald Trump went to PAY HOMAGE to his BIGGEST financial supporters:
5. And then in the last couple of weeks, I have PULLED CONNECTIONS, getting letters into the hands of BOTH Donald Trump and Mike Pence (this letter to Pence links to the one I sent Mr. Trump):
6. The ONLY answer I have gotten so far, is that Donald Trump DELIBERATELY selected the birthplace of both ME and former Mexican President Vicente Fox's American grandfather -- Cincinnati, Ohio -- to START his "VICTORY TOUR" just last night -- LOL!!!
HAHAHAHAHA!!! Vicente Fox (an exec working for my Kenan Family controlled Coca-Cola, before President of Mexico), is CHASTISED by an ANGRY Fox News NAZI BITCH, but he REFUSES to back down -- LOL!!!
And now, to smoke my LAST CIGARETTE!!!
Senator John F. Kennedy, Gore Vidal, and Tennessee Williams shoot skeet at the "Standard Oil Playground", Palm Beach -- at a Kennedy Compound in 1958.
