What began as a summer retreat, to a colonial landmark, became the site of a viciously nasty war, “The Battle of Germantown.’ Many have wondered if this was an accident in history.

 

Cliveden Manor is a story of a colonial family, the servants, and its slaves.

 

Before William Penn and the Mayflower, the Native Americans lived on the land now known as the United States of America. Here in the northwest, the Philadelphia-Germantown area is where the Quakers settled to farm and establish businesses. They were mostly of German descent, hence the name Germantown.

This area was also a haven for runaway slaves. “The Underground Railroad” ran through this region of the country as well. There existed a number of “Safe-Houses” for escaped African-American Slaves (not known then as African Americans) such as, The Mennonite Meeting House and the Johnson House. The route to freedom for Black people often led to Canada, although a number of African descendants decided to settle in Germantown where they felt safe from persecution.

 

During Rosenkreuz’s lifetime, the Order was said to consist of no more than eight members, each a doctor and a sworn bachelor. Each member undertook an oath to heal the sick without payment, to maintain a secret fellowship, and to find a replacement for himself before he died. Three such generations had supposedly passed between c.1500 and c.1600, a time when scientific, philosophical and religious freedom had grown so that the public might benefit from the Rosicrucians’ knowledge, so that they were now seeking good men.

The Fama Fraternitatis presented the legend of a German doctor and mystic philosopher referred to as “Frater C.R.C.” (It’s identified later in a third manifesto as Christian Rosenkreuz, or “Rose-cross”). The year 1378 is presented as being the birth year of “Our Christian Father”, and it is stated that he lived 106 years. After studying in the Middle East under various masters, possibly adhering to Sufism, he was unable to spread the knowledge he had acquired to any prominent European figures. Instead, he gathered a small circle of friends/disciples and founded the Rosicrucian Order (this can be deduced to have occurred around 1407).

Rosicrucianism is a philosophical secret society said to have been founded in late medieval Germany by Christian Rosenkreuz. It holds a doctrine or theology “built on esoteric truths of the ancient past”, which “concealed from the average man, provide insight into nature, the physical universe and the spiritual realm.” Rosicrucianism is symbolized by the Rosy Cross or Rose Cross.

Between 1607 and 1616, two anonymous manifestos were published, first in Germany and later throughout Europe. These were the Fama Fraternitatis RC (The Fame of the Brotherhood of RC) and the Confessio Fraternitatis (The Confession of the Brotherhood of RC). The influence of these documents, presenting a “most laudable Order” of mystic-philosopher-doctors and promoting a “Universal Reformation of Mankind”, gave rise to an enthusiasm called by its historian Dame Frances Yates the “Rosicrucian Enlightenment”.

Rosicrucian manifestos opposed Roman Catholicism and its preference for dogma over empiricism, similar to texts authored by the Protestant Reformer Martin Luther. They traced their philosophy and science to the Moors, asserting that it had been kept secret for 120 years until the intellectual climate might receive it.

Early seventeenth-century occult philosophers such as Michael Maier, Robert Fludd and Thomas Vaughan interested themselves in the Rosicrucian world view. According to historian David Stevenson it was also influential to Freemasonry as it was emerging in Scotland. In later centuries, many esoteric societies have claimed to derive their doctrines, in whole or in part, from the original Rosicrucians. Several modern societies have been formed for the study of Rosicrucianism and allied subjects.

My name is Salestian Michaels. I’m currently employed by the ‘Philadelphia Sunny Globe Newspaper Organization and International News Network.’ I was born and raised in South Philly, the heart and soul of ‘Mafiosi Life.’ Angel Brondidi and Nick the Needle ran it all when they weren’t at odds with one another.

I was there when Captain Willis Samuel and National Forestry Service Ranger Commander Gerald Glenn confronted and eradicated the monster beast in the park. I didn’t like Glenn very much, although I admired him. He was damn good at what he did. It was his woman that I liked…loved and wanted.

 

Yeah, she was something else. Genailia put the whammy on me at the zoo. She definitely whipped my ass in that booth. But man, just to get the opportunity to be near her, to feel her voluptuously warm and supple body and that magnificent ass close to mine…was worth it. I guess I really shouldn’t have grinded on her ass though. I thought she might like it. I was wrong. I’m still searching for a way to apologize. They’re somewhere up in the Yukon or Alaska nowadays. I do hope that she gets back this way.

 

I wasn’t happy with the hospital bills either.

 

The ‘Dungeon Queen’ case hasn’t come to trial yet. And the Fairmount Park Rapist case was never solved – it’s still wide open, soon to become a cold case.

There’s been some talk around town and throughout the buildings downtown of something else. Rather than the beast, although that story will remain on many lips for a long, long, time; another frightful occurrence screams for resolve. Apparently, ‘The Wissahickon Kelpius Society’ is being looked at. There appears to be some sort of mystery surrounding missing kids and some dark robed monks…of course I had to twist a few wrists and ring a couple of ears in order to get the case. Albeit, my curiosity abounds with the want of knowledge about these characters and the missing kids, I wanted to be paid for the research and story as well.

 

Paying close attention to the ‘scuttle-butt,’ gossip, and rumors about, I remember hearing something about an occultist and his group back in history class. It was something about George Washington and a mystic back in the 16th or 17th century. It was during, I think, the French-American and British war of the colonies. The old mansions in Germantown reflect upon the general’s visit along with the French leader, Lafayette.

The mansions along ‘The Great Road’ held a complete and authenticated history of events from back then.

What I do know up to this point is what has been said, stored, and recorded:

 

~ “The Battle of Germantown” occurred at the Cliveden Manor. “It was also the country home of Pa. Chief Justice Benjamin Chew. On October 4, 1777, a British regiment occupied Cliveden and defended it from full assaults by the Colonials. Over 70 soldiers died on these grounds. Although it was an American defeat, Washington’s bold strategy helped to win French aid for the cause of independence.” – “The First Protest Against Slavery was here in 1688, at the home of Tunes Kunders, an eloquent protest was written by a group of German Quakers.

The peak of the “Rosicrucianism furor” was reached when two mysterious posters appeared on the walls of Paris in 1622 within a few days of each other. The first said “We, the Deputies of the Higher College of the Rose-Croix, do make our stay, visibly and invisibly, in this city (currently Philadelphia)”, and the second ended with the words “The thoughts attached to the real desire of the seeker will lead us to him and him to us.”

 

The legendary first manifesto, Fama Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis, (1614) inspired the works of Michael Maier (1568–1622) of Germany; Robert Fludd (1574–1637) and Elias Ashmole (1617–1692) of England; Teophilus Schweighardt Constantiens, Gotthardus Arthusius, Julius Sperber, Henricus Madathanus, Gabriel Naudé, Thomas Vaughan and others. In Elias Ashmole’s Theatrum Chimicum britannicum (1650) he defends the Rosicrucians. Some later works impacting Rosicrucianism were the Opus magocabalisticum et theosophicum by George von Welling (1719)–of alchemical and paracelsian inspiration—and the Aureum Vellus order Goldenes Vliess by Hermann Fictuld in 1749.

 

Before William Penn and the Mayflower, the Native Americans lived on the land now known as the United States of America. Here in the northwest, the Philadelphia-Germantown area is where the Quakers settled to farm and establish businesses. They were mostly of German descent, hence the name Germantown.

This area was also a haven for runaway slaves. “The Underground Railroad” ran through this region of the country as well. There existed a number of “Safe-Houses” for escaped African-American Slaves (not known then as African Americans) such as, The Mennonite Meeting House and the Johnson House. The route to freedom for Black people often led to Canada, although a number of African descendants decided to settle in Germantown where they felt safe from persecution.

The great-great grandfather of Chief Justice Benjamin Chew (1772-1810), John Chew arrived in Virginia from England in 1622. The Chew family and the Penn Family were friends and business associates. The protégé of Penn, Benjamin Chew was legal counsel to the Penns’ and eventually family tied by way of marriage of Chew and Penn offspring. The two families also had ties with other prominent families in Pennsylvania and other colonial settlement areas.

 

It took Chief Justice Chew four years to complete construction of the Cliveden (1763-1767). The house was named after a mansion that Chew admired. The Cliveden was specifically designed to become a summer retreat from the home in the city, Philadelphia, six miles away.

 

‘Philadelphia was then the capital of Pennsylvania!’

 

Michael Maier was appointed Pfalzgraf (Count Palatine) by Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor and King of Hungary and King of Bohemia. He also was one of the most prominent defenders of the Rosicrucians, clearly transmitting details about the “Brothers of the Rose Cross” in his writings. Maier made the firm statement that the Brothers of R.C. exist to advance inspired arts and sciences, including alchemy. Researchers of Maier’s writings point out that he never claimed to have produced gold, nor did Heinrich Khunrath or any of the other ′Rosicrucianists′. Their writings point toward a symbolic and spiritual alchemy, rather than an operative one. In a combination of direct and veiled styles, these writings conveyed the nine stages of the involutive-evolutive transmutation of the threefold body of the human being, the threefold soul and the threefold spirit, among others esoteric knowledge related to the “Path of Initiation”.

 

In his 1618 pamphlet, Pia et Utilissima Admonitio de Fratribus Rosae Crucis, Henrichus Neuhusius wrote that the Rosicrucians departed for the east due to European instability caused by the start of the Thirty Years’ War. In 1710, Sigmund Richter, founder of the secret society of the Golden and Rosy Cross, also suggested the Rosicrucians had migrated eastward. In the first half of the 20th century, René Guénon, a researcher of the occult, presented this same idea in some of his works. An eminent author of the 19th century, Arthur Edward Waite, presented arguments contradicting this idea. It was in this fertile field of discourse that many Rosicrucian societies arose. They were based on the occult, inspired by the mystery of this “College of Invisibles”. Frater C.R.C. – Christian Rose Cross (symbolical representation)

The literary works of the 16th and 17th centuries were full of enigmatic passages containing references to the Rose Cross.

 

“The Revolutionary War” has many chapter levels throughout for the fight for independence from England. The “Battle of Germantown” was a bitter defeat for the American army. The Chews reportedly were not at the house during the battle.

 

Mr. Chew was in exile during the battle, after an arrest warrant was issued. Even though he lived in America, he was British. His loyalties to America were called to question.

 

The “Mischianza” was held at the Walnut Grove, May 18th, 1778, honoring the farewell of General Sir William Howe. He was scheduled to return to London, England. Two of the Chew girls were escorted by Brits to the Ball. The ‘Mischianza’ was a festive occasion with a mock tournament of medieval knights, their squires, and pages; in jousting events, dancing, colorful fireworks displays, and an elaborate banquet.

 

‘Blair McClenachan’ (owned the mansion thru 1779-1797), lived in Philadelphia during the war, he made most of his fortune by outfitting privateers. This man also had political aspirations. Mr. McClenachan held republican sympathies with France while serving the democratic society in Philadelphia. Like Chew, he also used Cliveden as a summer retreat. While he and his family resided at the Cliveden, McClenachan suffered economic reverses. He sold off all his land investments, Cliveden being the last property to go. However, before that he entertained some prominent individuals during his tenure at Cliveden. The English translator of the “Marquis de Chastellux” was one such visitor; General Washington was another.

 

The war began to change its’ tide in favor of the Americans by late spring, 17178. Mr. Chews’ exile-imprisonment came to an end.

 

The ‘Civil War,’ ‘Slavery,’ ‘The Emancipation Proclamation’ – the ring of freedom for all Black People and People of Color, leaps into mind with a powerful explosion of pride and passion. The painting, “Storming the Chew House,” also promotes a vivid glance of history.

 

This “College of Invisibles,” the idea of such an order, exemplified by the network of astronomers, professors, mathematicians, and natural philosophers in 16th-century Europe promoted by such men as Johannes Kepler, Georg Joachim Rheticus, John Dee and Tycho Brahe, gave rise to the Invisible College. This was the precursor to the Royal Society founded in 1660. It was constituted by a group of scientists who began to hold regular meetings to share and develop knowledge acquired by experimental investigation. Among these were Robert Boyle, who wrote: “the cornerstones of the Invisible (or as they term themselves the Philosophical) College, do now and then honour me with their company…”; John Wilkins and John Wallis, who described those meetings in the following terms: “About the year 1645, while I lived in London (at a time when, by our civil wars, academical studies were much interrupted in both our Universities), … I had the opportunity of being acquainted with divers worthy persons, inquisitive natural philosophy, and other parts of human learning; and particularly of what hath been called the New Philosophy or Experimental Philosophy. We did by agreements, divers of us, meet weekly in London on a certain day and hour, under a certain penalty, and a weekly contribution for the charge of experiments, with certain rules agreed amongst us, to treat and discourse of such affairs.

 

According to Jean Pierre Bayard, two Rosicrucian-inspired Masonic rites emerged toward the end of 18th century, the Rectified Scottish Rite, widespread in Central Europe where there was a strong presence of the “Golden and Rosy Cross”, and the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, first practiced in France, in which the 18th degree is called Knight of the Rose Croix.

 

The change from “operative” to “speculative” Masonry occurred between the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 18th century. Two of the earliest speculative Masons for whom a record of initiation exists were Sir Robert Moray and Elias Ashmole. Robert Vanloo states that earlier 17th century Rosicrucianism had a considerable influence on Anglo-Saxon Masonry. Hans Schick sees in the works of Comenius (1592–1670) the ideal of the newly born English Masonry before the foundation of the Grand Lodge in 1717. Comenius was in England during 1641.

During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, various groups styled themselves Rosicrucian. The diverse groups who link themselves to a “Rosicrucian Tradition” can be divided into three categories: Esoteric Christian Rosicrucian groups, which profess Christ; Masonic Rosicrucian groups such as Societas Rosicruciana; and initiatory groups such as the Golden Dawn and the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC).

 

According to Masonic writers, the Order of the Rose Cross is expounded in a major Christian literary work that molded the subsequent spiritual views of the western civilization, The Divine Comedy (ca. 1308–1321) by Dante Alighieri.

 

‘Philadelphia was then the capital of Pennsylvania!’

 

Philadelphia was a bustling town. Everything came out of and through the city of “Brotherly-Love,” such as, mail, business transactions, shipping, etc.

 

The ‘Yellow Plague’ drove the Chews to reside full-time in the sleepy rural farming community.

 

The Chews were among several wealthy families in the region. Not only was Ben Chew a protégé of Penn, he was a prominent Philadelphia lawyer-jurist and served as a representative of the three lower counties of Delaware, Maryland, and Connecticut. Later, his service led to a political career.

 

With the “Great-Road” (Germantown Avenue), the view of the mansion was majestic. Its’ majestic stance was not obstructed by tall trees and shrubbery, as it stood atop a hill, basically, alone in those days. The year 1777 marked the ‘Battle of Germantown’ between British and American troops. British Commander Colonel Thomas Musgrave, head of the British regiment, quartered in the house of the Chews, while his troops bivouacked behind the orchards of the Cliveden. The house was placed under British protection.

 

General Washington’s troops marched down from the ‘Skippack’ farming area through Chestnut Hill and into Germantown on October 4th, 1777. During the dark early morning, with visibility at a minimum, the fog thickened sky was enhanced by thickening smoke of cannon and musket fire.

 

The ‘Order of The Dracul’…from Romania to Carfax Abbey!

 Dracula.original.image_4.27.16

The name Dracula was the patronym (Drăculea) of the descendants of Vlad II of Wallachia, who took the name “Dracul” after being invested in the Order of the Dragon in 1431. In the Romanian language, the word dracul (Romanian drac “dragon” + -ul “the”) can mean either “the dragon” or, especially in the present day, “the devil”.

 

Bram Stoker’s fictional Dracula attracted popular attention. During his main reign (1456–1462), “Vlad the Impaler” is said to have killed from 40,000 to 100,000 European civilians (political rivals, criminals, and anyone he considered “useless to humanity”), mainly by impaling. The sources depicting these events are records by Saxon settlers in neighbouring Transylvania, who had frequent clashes with Vlad III. Vlad III is revered as a folk hero by Romanians for driving off the invading Ottoman Turks, of which his impaled victims are said to have included as many as 100,000.

 

Vlad the Impaler; Historically, the name “Dracula” is derived from a Chivalric order called the Order of the Dragon, founded by Sigismund of Luxembourg (then king of Hungary) to uphold Christianity and defend the Empire against the Ottoman Turks. Vlad II Dracul, father of Vlad III, was admitted to the order around 1431, after which Vlad II wore the emblem of the order and later, as ruler of Wallachia, his coinage bore the dragon symbol, from which the name “Dracula” is derived. People of Wallachia only knew voievod (king) Vlad III as Vlad Teppes (the Impaler). The name “Dracula” became popular in Romania after publication of Stoker’s book. Contrary to popular belief, the name Dracula does not translate to “son of the devil” in Romanian, which would be “pui de drac”.

 

“Who was it but one of my own race who as Voivode crossed the Danube and beat the Turk on his own ground? This was a Dracula indeed! Woe was it that his own unworthy brother, when he had fallen, sold his people to the Turk and brought the shame of slavery on them! Was it not this Dracula, indeed, who inspired that other of his race who in a later age again and again brought his forces over the great river into Turkey-land; who, when he was beaten back, came again, and again, though he had to come alone from the bloody field where his troops were being slaughtered, since he knew that he alone could ultimately triumph!”

~ Bram Stoker~

 

The Order of the Dragon (Latin: Societas Draconistarum, lit. “Society of the Dragonists”) was a monarchical chivalric order for selected nobility, founded in 1408 by Sigismund who was King of Hungary (r. 1387–1437) at the time and later became Holy Roman Emperor (r. 1433–1437). It was fashioned after the military orders of the Crusades, requiring its initiates to defend the cross and fight the enemies of Christianity, in particular the Ottoman Empire.

 

The Order flourished during the first half of the 15th century, primarily in Germany and Italy. After Sigismund’s death in 1437, its importance declined in Western Europe, but after the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, it continued to play a role in Hungary, Croatia, Wallachia and Serbia which bore the brunt of the Ottoman incursions.

 

In 1396, Pope Boniface IX proclaimed a crusade against the Ottomans, and a campaign was organized to recapture the fortress and put a halt to the Ottoman expansion. Sigismund was nominally in charge; however, in the 1396 Battle of Nicopolis the French leader, John of Nevers, commanded the French half of the forces and ignored Sigismund’s entreaties by charging the Turks. About 15,000 crusaders died with only a few leaders, including Sigismund, escaping. Sigismund returned to Hungary in 1401 and, facing a number of revolts, gradually resumed control and re-asserted himself as the King of Hungary. This was achieved by allying himself with the political party of Stibor of Stiboricz, Nicholas II Garay, and Hermann II of Celje, in return for their military support, which enabled him to fight off domestic rivals. Sigismund campaigned against the Croats and Bosnians, which culminated in 1408 with the Battle of Dobor—fought for the possession of Bosnia—and a massacre of noble families.

 

Vlad II (born August 30, 1400), known as Vlad Dracul (English: Vlad the Dragon), was a voivode (English: duke) of Wallachia. He reigned from 1436 to 1442, and again from 1443 to 1447. He was the father of Mircea II, Vlad Călugărul (English: Vlad the Monk), Vlad III Dracula, who became posthumously known by the epithet Țepeș (English: the Impaler), and Radu III the Beautiful.

 

Vlad II received the surname Dracul in 1431, after being inducted into the Order of the Dragon, founded in 1408 by the King Sigismund of Hungary (the later Holy Roman Emperor), as part of a design to gain political favor from the Catholic Church and to aid in protecting Wallachia against the Ottoman Empire.

 

Vlad II Dracul was a member of the House of Drăculești lineage, and son of Mircea “the Old”, Voivoide of Walachia, and was known to have murdered members of the rival princely House of Dănești, a not-so-distant relation to his own father’s House of Basarab, and gained power in Wallachia, upon returning from exile in Transylvania in 1436.

 

The identity of Vlad’s first wife is unknown. His second wife, Princess (Cneajna) Vasilissa of Moldavia, was the eldest daughter of Alexandru cel Bun and paternal aunt of Stephen the Great of Moldavia.

 

Of his legitimate children, Mircea was the eldest, his mother’s identity being unknown. Vlad Călugărul was the product of Vlad and one of his mistresses, a Wallachian noblewoman called Călțuna. Vlad Țepeș and Radu were children of his marriage with Vasilissa of Moldavia.

 

Vlad, having numerous mistresses, also fathered several illegitimate children, including another son named Mircea (the name Mircea being a family favorite due to Vlad’s father, Mircea cel Bătrân, a popular Wallachian voivode).

 

In 1431, Vlad Dracul’s brother Alexandru I Aldea took the throne from Dan II, the latter having held it on and off since 1420. In 1436, following Alexandru I Aldea’s death from illness, Vlad Dracul ascended the throne.

 

Mircea II ascended to the throne in 1442, as Vlad Dracul was in the Ottoman court negotiating for support from the Ottomans in an effort to better defend his rule against John Hunyadi, the voivode of Transylvania. Following the battle of Marosszentimre (Romanian Sântimbru) in 1442, Hunyadi forcefully entered Wallachia and forced Dracul to submit.[2] In 1443, Mircea II was ousted from the throne by an invading army led by Hunyadi, and was forced to flee. Hunyadi placed Basarab II, son to Dan II, on the throne. However, Basarab II held the throne for only a short time, losing it within a year to Vlad Dracul, supported by armies of the Ottoman Empire. Vlad Dracul had made a treaty with the Ottomans insuring that he would give them annual tribute, as well as sending Wallachian boys to them yearly to be trained for service in their armies.

 

Mircea II supported his father, but did not support his politics with the Ottoman Empire. Mircea II led Wallachian forces in a successful campaign against the Ottomans with the full knowledge of his father, but with neither support nor opposition from him. An able military commander, Mircea II successfully recaptured the fortress of Giurgiu in 1445. However, in yet another treaty with the Ottomans, his father allowed the Ottomans to again have control of the fortress in an effort to retain their support of his having the throne, and in an effort to keep his two captive sons safe.

 

In 1443, the new King of Hungary, Ulaszlo I (also King of Poland as Władysław III Warneńczyk), launched the Varna campaign against the Ottoman Empire, under the command of Hunyadi, in an effort to drive the Turks out of Europe. Hunyadi demanded that Vlad II fulfill his oath as a member of the Order of the Dragon and a vassal of Hungary: Vlad was commanded to join the campaign but declined.

 

Pope Eugene IV absolved Dracul of his promise, but demanded that he send his son Mircea II instead (it is likely that Vlad II had originally denied the request in an effort to prevent his sons from being convoked). The Christian army was destroyed in the Battle of Varna; Hunyadi escaped the scene, and was blamed by many, including Mircea II and his father, for the debacle. This marked the start of hostilities between Hunyadi on one side and Vlad Dracul and his eldest son on the other.

 

In December 1447, boyars in league with the Hungarian regent, John Hunyadi, rebelled against Vlad Dracul II and beheaded him in the marshes near Bălteni. Mircea, Dracul’s eldest son and heir, was blinded and buried alive at Târgoviște.

 

“The stranger, blessed to deliver the ‘New World’ to its destiny, is George Washington. The year is 1774. This data is from text discovered in the ‘Library of Congress,’ by an occult historian. His name is George Ballard.

His account is one of many legends inspired by a 17th century monk by the name of ‘Johannes Kelpius of Transylvania.’

He led a mystical and mysterious cult under the guise of religion. The so-called religious order was housed in the woods of Northwest Philadelphia. The meditations commenced and continued undisturbed and unmolested from about 1694 to 1708, Johannes’s death, into and beyond current day society.

Ballard believes the members of the religious order in the Wissahickon-Valley Green woods of Roxborough – Chestnut Hill – Germantown – Mount Airy vicinity and woodland still reside there to this very day. For the past three centuries, Dracula has reigned supreme in tales of darkness and blood-feasting. But the gothic and mysterious romance and blending ooze of hard facts tainted with fanaticism, has indeed planted the seed of intrigue into the minds of historians and imagination of people who believe in the mystical magical powers possessed in Kelpius and his ‘Philosopher’s Stone.’

The stone is an alchemical substance that has the ability to turn lead into gold.

 

Shady dealings and romance was the lore spun of Kelpius. His spiritual teachings were reminiscent of ‘Zen Buddhism.’

Kelpius was reportedly born in or about 1667 in Europe. His home town is currently known as ‘Sighisoara, Romania’ – where religious infighting fueled a protestant reformation. It was a devastating rift in European civilization.

 

Kelpius was reportedly born in or about 1667 in Europe. His home town is currently known as ‘Sighisoara, Romania’ – where religious infighting fueled a protestant reformation. It was a devastating rift in European civilization.

 

Johannes was schooled in Bavaria (Germany) where he earned a doctorate in liberal arts. He became infatuated with a radical form of Lutheranism, deism. The order rejected the church and religious hierarchy. ‘The Society of The Women in the Wilderness, a band of forty or so like-minded followers, of which he came to lead, advocated a direct relationship with God.

Kelpius thought this devoted group that the world would end is the year 1694, when Heaven merges with Earth.

Kelpius believed the catastrophe would begin in the wilderness of Philadelphia. A vessel was chartered for the journey across the Atlantic to the Americas.

 

Sparking the imagination, romantic novelists and poets began to take notice of the monks. Their hermit lifestyle fascinated one particular writer who happened to be a friend of ‘Edgar Allan Poe.’ His name is George Lippard.

Mr. Lippard wrote of the monks. He is quoted as saying “The Wissahickon Valley, outside of Philadelphia City, is a hot-bed of eerie activity.” He wrote and published a string of books accounting for the occult practices of witchcraft, devils, spells, and debauchery.

 

Researching and tracing the truth is what I’m after, not fables, legends, and flowery prose. I seek truth and facts. It appears, thought Sally while sitting behind his desk, the more I dig into this so-called legend, the murkier it seems to become.

When I went to the public library, the records were partly vague. I’ve discovered that hermits tend not to keep copious records if any at all. I’ve successfully been able to dig up third and second hand accounts coupled with a few generations of opaque comments and opinions on the legend by nearby residents and family members.

I knew then that I had to dig a bit deeper. Little did I know this intrepid trip would take my research and investigation to Transylvania, Romania, Africa, Istanbul, Morocco, Italy, and back to the States?

 

One resident of the Roxborough neighborhood who’s residence was near the Ridge Avenue, Port Royal Avenue, and Henry Avenue intersection told me of a man who went walking in the woods; like many who visit the Wissahickon – Valley Green trails. He spoke of how the man stumbled upon a prayer meeting of sorts. He began the tale with a recollection of another individual who transplanted from Europe to the States near or around the same era as Johannes. He didn’t remember his name.

“Like his father and grandfather, this descendent of Attila also remained in seclusion and clandestined shrouds of secrecy and darkness near the ‘Bells Mills Road’ area.

The man, a rather large and tall Black; a Nubian born prince to the best of my knowledge, was hardly seen out in the bright of day.” He continued saying, about thirty years ago, I remember hiking through the park near Hermits Lane in Roxborough when I heard a ghostly singing nearby. There was another man walking not far in front of me. He noticed the bizarre happenings as well.

We heard “Rom mom, rom mom mom.” The chanting chorus resounded over and over again.” The speaking man continued, “It was gloriously creepy.” Following the sounds of singing and chanting, we came upon an equally, if not more, creepy sight. We saw a circle of figures huddled around a large yawning stone portal embedded in the hillside. Immediately, I, we recognized who they were.”

 

“We killed 23,884 Turks without counting those whom we burned in homes or the Turks whose heads were cut by our soldiers. I have killed peasants, men and women, old and young. They lived in Oblucitza and Novoselo, where the Danube flows into the sea. And yes, High up to such places as Samovit and Ghighen as well as up to Rahova, which is located near Chilia, from the lower Danube; thus, your highness, know this, I have broken the peace with Sultan Mehmed II.”

 

The rain fell hard and steady upon the makeshift gallows. The hangman’s noose was fitted snugly around the neck of the valiant warrior. He did not blink or whimper. His tall well-muscled, cut and bloodied frame, stood still…disciplined, proud, and godlike. One could think him frozen.

 

Of noble blood was he, this majestic warrior and usurper. Oh yes, the princely throat was custom fitted; the captured neck had twice before escaped sudden and intended death. The warrior prince, somehow, escaped the axe man’s blade and the finalizing guillotine.

 

In December 1447, boyars in league with the Hungarian regent John Hunyadi rebelled against Vlad II Dracul and killed him in the marshes near Balteni. Mircea, Dracul’s eldest son and heir, was blinded and buried alive at Târgovi. To prevent Wallachia from falling into the Hungarian fold, the Ottomans invaded Wallachia and put young Vlad III on the throne. However, this rule was short-lived as Hunyadi himself now invaded Wallachia and restored his ally Vladislav II, of the Daneti clan, to the throne.

 

Vlad fled to Moldavia, where he lived under the protection of his uncle, Bogdan II. In October 1451, Bogdan was assassinated and Vlad fled to Hungary. Impressed by Vlad’s vast knowledge of the mindset and inner workings of the Ottoman Empire as well as his hatred of the new sultan Mehmed II, Hunyadi reconciled with his former rival and made him his advisor.

 

Vlad considered the boyars the chief cause of the constant strife as well as of the death of his father and brother. To secure his rule, he had many leading nobles killed and gave positions in his council, traditionally belonging to the greatest boyars, to persons of obscure origins, who would be loyal to him alone, and some to foreigners.

For lower offices, Vlad preferred knights and free peasants to boyars. In his aim of fixing up Wallachia, Vlad issued new laws punishing thieves. Vlad treated the boyars with the same harshness, believing them guilty of weakening Wallachia through their personal struggles for power.

 

During his life Vlad wrote his name in Latin documents as Wladislaus Dragwlya, vaivoda partium Transalpinarum (1475). His Romanian patronymic Dragwlya (or Dragkwlya) Dragulea, Dragolea, Draculeais a diminutive of the epithet Dracul “the Dragon” carried by his father Vlad II, who in 1431 was inducted as a member of the Order of the Dragon, a chivalric order founded by Sigismund of Hungary in 1408. Dracul is the Romanian definite form, the -ul being the suffigated definite article (deriving from Latin ille). The noun drac “dragon” itself continues Latin draco. In Modern Romanian, the word drac has adopted the meaning of “devil” (the term for “dragon” now being balaur or dragon).

 

This has led to misinterpretations of Vlad’s epithet as characterizing him as “devilish”. Vlad’s moniker of epe (“Impaler”) identifies his favorite method of execution. It was attached to his name posthumously, in ca.1550.

 

The gloomy rain-filled air went from gray to black in a hurry. The sound of leathery flapping night-wings filed the darkened air. The sound became deafening. The flapping became louder and louder. The fluttering clouded the view of all who could see. There were just too many flailing, flapping, flying wings.

The bronzed warrior son of the nobleman who spit and cursed at God smiled a bedeviling smile. He knew his freedom was a t hand. He would be free to once again drink and spill the blood of the conquered and the ravaged. Oh yes, this bastard half-African descendent was unknown to the sperm-donor father who was infamously despised and feared. The father known to us as “Vlad The Impaler.”

 

‘Vlad Teppes’ victories offer some of the Moorish Villages allowance for momentary relaxation and other physical and mind resting indulgences. A descendent of ‘Attila the Hun,’ Vlad Teppes lost his humanity to false rumors and self-destruction. Vlad held many women in his arms and teeth. His blood lust was only surpassed by the lust within his loins.

 

“Hominis Nocturna!”

 

So what if we existed for real? We haunt your dreams, your movies, your urban legends and your novels. Your children want to be us, emulate us; they dress in their black clothes listen to their melancholy music and wear their precious little fangs. They hang out at clubs and malls pretending to be something that they could not comprehend in a lifetime. Why? Aren’t we supposed to be the essence of evil feeding on living blood, taking lives, the dark spawn of Satan?

 

Would you know us if you met us on a busy street, brushed up against you in a busy store, or sat behind you in a restaurant? I don’t think so. You have spoken to us a hundred times, nodded complacently at us as you passed on a sidewalk, shook our hands at business meetings. You may have even been a lover or a close friend; truth is you know nothing of us. The media has blown us up and misrepresented us for years, we are not all those things you fear, well not all of us at least.

 

In time I hope to educate and place us in a better light, provide you with understanding and with that understanding relax your fears and replace trust. I am known as Ian Christof; Reverend to the vampire church, emissary to the world of the living. Come my sheep let me guide you and keep you safe on this journey to the Darkside…

“The Pulverization of Polarization In Politico”: No Game For Fools

Image

By

Gregory V. Boulware

Well, here we go again. It’s that time of the year. It’s that time when they seem to come out of nowhere… The game is afoot! Oh yes, the campaign.

 

It comes with promises and cadences of the old, and maybe a few of the new. Many of them smile at us while sneering at the perceived enemy of the people.

He or she promises to protect social security and retirement benefits. They promise to protect seniors for their decades of hard work.

“I promise access to high quality Programs provided through unnecessary overregulation – we will know who to blame, and blame them!”

 

They promise to relentlessly oppose the millionaires in defense of the middle class.

“My team will vigorously seek to raise the minimum wage and close tax loopholes that currently let millionaires pay less in taxes than teachers, firefighters, cops, nurses, and ditch-diggers. We will also end the tax breaks for multinational corporation who ship jobs to Mexico, China, Chile, or anywhere else.”

 

The rhetoric rallies from, through, and all over the city and county boast “It’s time for change!” They say, “It’s time the middle class comes first – It’s time the middle class becomes America’s top priority – It’s Time…”

 

They will promise us how they will change and demand insurance and drug companies to pay up. They will promise to make the public school district better and listen to what teachers have to say. They promise…

 

An independently voiced neighborhood newspaper in Northeast Philadelphia, posted an expose questioning politico’s law enforcement selection practices.

 

The proverbial hoops are once again made ready for the onslaught of vernaculars, and circumcised oratories. The clouded crystal balls of probabilities and innuendoes of righteousness spill out onto the masses. The chairs, benches, and podiums are filled to capacity as are the mass campaign promises on cardboard and plastic, filling the mailboxes throughout the land. Eyes and ears are bombarded while seats are filled atop guilt laden carpets that sneeze, weep, and cry of dirt upon heaps of dirt that is swept and pilled beneath.

Make ready…for it is time once again for the improvisation of who’s gonna do it better, and from which orifice will the pollution flow? But flow it must, its election time. Who really cares..? Many!

 

Enter, a Northeast Philadelphia Community Newspaper. Gaseous fumes filled one of its pages with a continuing fire of racism, polarization, and political non-sequitor opinions. A dude from the ‘Rhawnhurst’ area of town wrote a letter to the paper’s editor. Page ten of the March 26, 2014 publication posted the inflammatory falsehood.

 

The posting boasted of how ‘Mumia Abu Jamal’ was supposed to have admitted his guilt in the shooting death of a Philadelphia Police Officer. This reporter, Admittingly (conveying every sympathy to The Mrs., the Children, and family as well as to the family of Mr. Jamal), cannot help but wonder how the wife of the deceased cop, after remarrying, is able to continue campaigning for Jamal’s execution for more than thirty years. She has every right to do so, but what is the role of the new husband? Is he okay with his wife running around with a bunch of folks, who are dead set on Jamal’s guilt, and their rampaging efforts in demanding the imprisoned man’s death? It would seem improbable, though not impossible, that such a thing would be supported by the replacement…I should say second husband.

The writer called the convicted journalist a coward. He said Jamal shot him in the face, point blank, between the eyes.

 

He also said that “Mumia’s guilt has been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt with numerous people having witnessed this cold-blooded murder.” The narrow-minded, mis-informed, tunnel-visioned fellow has been duped, convinced, and blinded by the ridiculously racist and biased report(s) upon which he bases his position.  

 

According to record, Mumia Abu Jamal has vehemently denied the murder and that the so-called witnesses have been tampered with including his missing brother. The case and accusations have all been tainted and diseased with cover up tactics and time. That particular piece of truth will never come to fruition or the light of day. 

 

This diluted complainant has also pointed out in his mis-begotten theory that President Obama’s leadership abilities are sub-level. The writer’s disapproval of our Commander In Chief is flawed in his presidential decision making as well. The writer thinks ‘Debo Adegbile’ is a cop-killing supporter simply because the man did his job as a lawyer in defending a client. The client happened to be Mumia Abu Jamal, a journalist who has proven in his work, over and over, that he is a defender of the poor and down trodden.

 

This man, an obvious racist, has stated that our Black President “Thinks there’s nothing wrong with championing the cause of a cop killer.”

 

During the presidential campaign of 2008, ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ visited Philadelphia. One of his high profiled stops was the busy ‘Mayfair Diner’ on Frankford Avenue in the predominantly white and affluent section of the city. The picture of ‘Martin Luther King Jr.’ comes to mind when he marched through a similar predominantly white and affluent section in the town of Boston.

The crowd of thousands, Black, White, and all in between, came out to see him and hear him speak. After enjoying a sit down meal with the men and women, the staff and management of the Northeast eatery, they all posed for photo-shoots with him. It was just simply great. It was a great thing at a great time.

Outside the diner, traffic, of course, was at a stand-still (if any at all with the streets filled with people), the noise was deafening. A fire storm of excitement and joyful cheers continually erupted while filling the air with love, joy, and unity.

 

On the other side of the street, the nay-sayers who maybe stop short of calling themselves “Klansmen” or “Pro-White” with the grandeur of a slave master’s whip, jeered in protest.

They didn’t want these Blacks and other outsiders storming into their peaceful, tranquil, and “Lilly-white” neighborhood – especially the one running for the nation’s highest office. It did not matter that Philly has experienced the leadership of several Black mayors and a predominantly Black city council. It didn’t matter. They bitched and complained and jeered – they heckled “nigger go home!” We don’t want you here! This is our neighborhood – take your filth and trash back to where you live!”

Have you ever seen Frankford Avenue after a ‘Phillies,’ or ‘Eagles game,’ or ‘St. Patrick’s Day?’ Check out the neighborhood just before all the bars close…and after.

 

The rally, of course, was a complete and utter success. After the Obama-Rally was over, the area in question was left cleaner than it was at the beginning.

 

“Selective Law Enforcement and Cover Ups” are one of the worst crimes facing the city of ‘Brotherly-Love and Sisterly Affection’…and many other cities for that matter. Take a look at New Orleans. Whatever happened to Brother Ray Nagin, the city’s former two-term mayor and man of and for the people? What about Tony Mack, mayor of Trenton New Jersey, ‘a good ole boy?’ Were these guys rightfully convicted of the crimes to which they were charged? I don’t know. But I do know with so many elected officials as incumbents, and others being the recipients of endorsements and/or guaranteed victories, one has to wonder how many times have any of them escaped an investigation or prosecution?   

Also included in the circular, another report suggests a federal judge publicly called out the Chief U.S. Attorney for failing to adequately assign a staff attorney so that a ‘strong-arm’ case against a particular teamsters union could more quickly proceed. 

The judge apparently anticipated a troubled atmosphere. He was concerned, first and foremost, in the last few weeks; about the events surrounding an assortment of situations involving the manipulation of law enforcement that generate significant public concern in Philadelphia. A writer for this town’s major newspaper once observed its governance as “corrupt but contented.”

Another reporter observed the judge as probably knowing that the machinery within the city’s government was intricately tied up with unions. These corrupted unions who make policy and fund elections; elections and cases that are protected before they even get a ruling.

 

It would appear that the political machine has the power to put the brakes on certain investigations. They can do this easily when a particular case comes close to those who are currently or previously in office. Many of these elected officials as incumbents and other recipients of endorsements and/or guaranteed victories raise questions for the average voter. One has to wonder “How many times has this person gotten away with a crime?” How many times has he or she escaped legitimate investigations and prosecution?”

 

A self-made prosecutor, who happened to be Black, had been run out of town. She was apolitical and not from ‘Philly.’ She was simply doing the job in which she was trained to do. Well, you see, that is the last thing that anyone within that machine wanted her to do. Compounding this problem, there were multiple unanswered questions concerning the finances of several OARC projects and taxpayer funds.

One judge quoted a term of contradiction. He paraphrased the question, are we ready for “Philadelphia Justice?”

 

The young attorney was immediately and publicly criticized for her expertise and escalated contribution in the investigation. The so-called Black leaders personally insinuated that it was “even worse” because she was a Black person – a Black woman who is supposed to worship and treat the targeted Black City Politician as if he walked on water – as if he were a God. His views and position was supported by many of the politico’s power machine.  

The young investigative attorney did no such thing. She packed her bags and moved to Ohio. There she accepted a peaceful and quiet job at a university.

The investigation, or course, came to a complete and full stop.

 

Now Hold On A Minute:

 

Another game surfaced along the way, my friends. At the state level, a colorful and recent investigation gained a number of fast, loose, and sharp turns leading to obscurity. In a clear, albeit, clandestine political pave over concerning someone called “Mr. ATM,” a tactic was used betwix “certain law enforcement types” due to a very close relationship. According to one particular report, certain politicians wished to “minimize investigative activity,” into their own affairs of state as well. If they couldn’t simply make it go away, they would “drag it out” and eventually “forget it.” It was a new program with an old politically charged governmental twist. Does this sound familiar? It’s been widely used over the years.

 

A special meeting was held in recognition of a spending spree. The mal-hopping venture with all its expenditures was said to have been perpetrated by one “Mr. ATM.” The planned meeting was for the direct and formal attempt to remove him and separate him from power and funds.

This move would allow the ‘business-as-usual’ time and distance needed in order to offset any investigation by sweeping it under the nearest rug. After a few preliminary inquiries, the dust mites will have had their meal while a coffin is being prepared for its final resting place – lost in a file somewhere unknown.

 

Upcoming elections have been a primary issue converging on Philly voters’ during the last few weeks. Several events almost always appear to merge into one. From recent months as well as the last few years never fails to get the temperature up as the electorate race gets under way.

The race in the primary elections have always proven to be somewhat comical if not predictable. Here in Philly, the election process is a virtual one party government.

 

Wasted money means absolutely nothing to electorate prospectors. The ideology is “There’s always more where that came from.” So why bother with worrying over compliance issues involving spending? News, at several levels either causes a person to blink uncontrollably or makes the head shake, twist, turn a complete one hundred and sixty degree turnaround, and then shrink in utter disbelief. Somewhat like that little girl in the movie, “the Exorcist.” It is the usual cynicism around town that there is no limit on how the…oops, our political establishment will use the power once acquiring and accessing the use of high office. Will they shelter just about anyone or any situation from oversight, compliance, or prosecution? It should matter who the guilty party is just as long as there is clear and compelling evidence with any form of wrong-doing.

 

Interestingly enough, a case recently ventured forth with the stench of selective and clandestine discretion. The newly appointed state attorney general made an outrageous decision based upon a series of investigations with clear and profoundly established violations of the law. The “Tower of Pisa” tilted to the point of; according to the naked eye, collapsing. Of course it remained standing, stiff and rigid; squashing the clear and greatly detailed documentation as opposed to making things right and doing the right thing – what you are hired and paid to do.

 

When challenged, a rather weak and flimsy reference to racism could be involved. The violations of law appear to be pointing fingers at our most trusted and believed in ‘Black Politicians,’ both city and state. Accordingly, withheld documentation indicates details of multiple violations involving gratuities, kick-backs, and favors abounded.

The vast majority of elected officials in this region of the state happen to be Black. For many years, this city has elected a multitude of Black individuals who are supposed to look out for – to represent the people, especially downtrodden working class and poor people who have no one to stand up for them.

 

Do we, the people, defend them who are supposed to defend us if they are guilty of betrayal? Some folks may point out the corruption cases spotlighting “Ray Nagin” of New Orleans, Louisiana or the ex-mayor of Trenton New Jersey, “Tony Mack” for their federal prosecution and convictions. For the most part, this reporter; not unlike Mr. Jim Foster, Editor of the Independent Voice, reporter and source for this submission; can only wonder why those who are suspected (charged or accused) will quite possibly never get their day in court? Are the dodging offenders not wishing to clear their good names, prove their innocence?

 

According to a political watchdog group, “The Committee of Seventy,” the newly appointed attorney general has not been setting a very high standard as proven by the recent decision to shut down the current investigation. The committee wasted no time in going public with that announcement. The demand has gone out for an outside investigation into the established corruption participants. The committee demands that the outside team be devoid of partisan slanting and a total review concerning the decision making of the attorney general. It also wants an independent report delivered unto them involving further indication that the suggested ‘shut-down’ smells bad when members of both parties have formerly announced that they want an ethics investigation of their own with the finding of members involved in bribery and extortion deals.

They also said it doesn’t look good when we’re seen or portrayed as “liars and cheats” and we are accused of cover-ups and other noteworthy scandals. One member of the state house commented on how he could not believe that one of their own would, as a result of hearing about it, readily take or become involved in such behavior. “After all, we’re not simple minded folk – we’re lawmakers.”

 

A memo, apparently, was dusted off by another newly appointed attorney general. The original one preceded the new appointee’s watch. But nevertheless, it was included in a file. It was an investigation file looking into how funds were utilized within Philadelphia’s political machine. The Philly political machine didn’t doddle with time. Producing its own challenge to prove them guilty of a crime, any crime proving or depriving how funds were being allocated.

 

Some information contained therein records how slimy deals came from one group headed by “Mr. ATM.” Two restaurants / nightclubs, a jazz festival, and a shopping plaza / strip mall were all overfunded, according to Foster’s report. It goes further to cite the projects as being out of compliance, or tainted in one way or another. The allusion further proposes there are likely many more projects of ‘Mr. ATM’ that might not pass or have not passed the smell tests should the audits ever be done or come to fruition.

 

Foster says there are some investigations that just need to be prioritized and taken to the public. This information would surely outrage the populace when folks are made aware of the evil vengeful tactics and practices engaged by these politicians. Imagine if you will, folks in the party intentionally and purposefully inflicting pain on someone simply because they are the opposition or stand in the way of planned for profit proceedings.’  

 

This kind of behavior has been the standard fare by the status quo in politico for un-countless years. Julius Caesar could attest to that, like many of his predecessors and his replacement as well.

The degree level and the financial burden to the everyday, average tax payer could quite possibly be the determining factor involving who gets prosecuted and who does not. Skin color factors play a significant role in this game not designed for fools, albeit, many a foolish fool has found themselves tangled in the sticky and fatal web of avarice, power, and greed. Many have long forgotten the originality of the role they were supposed to play – for, and by the people. Many factors weigh in on whether they (the prosecutors) go away as well.

Many politicos have gone down this road to perdition…they have made that trip in recent years; White, Black, Latino, Republican, or Democrat…it doesn’t matter, death is dead; as dead as can be, perpetual hell…forever.

 

Ironically, there has been some infighting amongst the politicos and the prosecutors alike. How many of the targeted politicians will be met with a slap on the wrist and a free walk because they are all connected to all the right people?  

 

Election time is once again upon us, as recent as May 20th. The power brokers in Philly, as well as the players throughout the State of Pennsylvania are looking to fill seats with individuals who are less of an independent thinker. The want team players with the spirit of being totally compliant with the agendas of lobbyists and insiders as opposed to those who think outside the box – a team player for the people – all the people!

 

Jim says he can see a deal happening here. Can you? What about the eight percent sales tax that was supposed to roll back last year in Philadelphia? It’s currently at eight (8%) percent. The mayor, city council, and a few other folks down there at City Hall (and beyond, i.e. the governor’s office) are pushing for another hike…to nine percent (9%). What’s to keep them from raising it up to ten (10%) percent or higher? Will you stand idly by and watch how they continue to dip their greasy little hands into our pockets? Why is the Philadelphia School District not receiving the funds needed in order to run correctly? Do you think they are trying to get it from you and me? Well, if not, what’s the tax hike for?  

 

Don’t take the vote for granted…choose carefully; vote wisely in this election – every election.    

 

 

Til Next Time…
