Russia Supported the Union During the American Civil War
The more research into this thesis, the more evidence I find to support it.
In the post the Confederates Were Democrats we learned that before the Civil War the Masonic lodges in America were predominantly of the York Rite orientation. After the war these lodges were converted and replaced with Scottish Rite lodges. This is interesting for a few different reasons.
First, as previously reviewed, the Scottish Rite uses the double-headed eagle as one of its main symbols. This same double-headed eagle was used by the House of Romanov in Russia. The importance of this commonality is found in the fact that Russian naval forces spent a good portion of the Civil War either floating off the Virginian and Washington state coasts, or further out to seas where they could cut off British and French access to the continent.
Though Russia was protecting its own interests from the alliance of Britain, France, and the Ottoman Empire, which had defeated them in the Crimean War, it was also beneficial for Russia to keep the alliance from establishing a strong foothold on the North American continent as it attempted to reverse an uprising, and potential revolution, in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth which was under Russian influence at the time.
This should be considered along the same lines as the NATO Eastern European encroachment of Russia which is taking place now. Russia has forever been fighting back this encroachment, and the war front has been moved back and forth on a consistent basis for centuries.
Two years before the start of open hostilities which marked the beginning of the American Civil War, Tsar Alexander II had ended serfdom in Russia in 1861. The political motives to end slavery in America were understood by the Russians, which is one of the moral reasons for their involvement across the oceans.
The Russian naval command sent 7 warships to the Eastern coast of America, and 6 warships to the Western coast. The intent was to provide support to the American forces fighting the secession movement by the Confederate states in the South. The Russian enemies of Britain and France were supporting the Confederates, and even considered supporting them with military forces.
It is probable that the presence of the Russian warships discouraged British and French involvement in the Civil War. Moving forces towards the American continent also exposed them to Russian naval power, and could weaken the war strategies being implemented against Russia back on the Eurasian continent.
Some readers have commented on previous posts stating that the Civil War wasn’t about slavery, and I agree. But slavery, and the economic benefits it provided to the Confederate Democrats, and in turn the Anglo-Franco establishment, which was aligned with the Catholic Church, were threatened by the changing socioeconomic mandates which were being implemented through the Lincoln and Republican platforms.
A similar threat exists today in the Trump platform.
Abraham Lincoln did run on a platform of anti-slavery, but that was not the sole argument. Lincoln was obviously a threat to the Anglo-Franco establishment, and the comfortable relationship he had with Tsar Alexander II served to compound the threat for the British and French, and the larger forces they represented.
Though America itself, and Lincoln, did not use a double-headed eagle emblem, there was an issuance of Lincoln coins which had a double eagle on one side. Instead of two heads on one bird, it was a mirrored reflection of an eagle, one on top of the other, much like a reflection when looking in a pool of water.
It is accepted historical fact that Lincoln was not a freemason, but he did submit an application for admittance to the Scottish Rite Tyrian Lodge before he became President. For the honour of the lodge, Lincoln retracted his application because he didn’t want to create the perception that he was becoming a mason for the purpose of getting votes and winning an election. This in and of itself is interesting, and is an example of Lincoln’s character and right-minded moral conditioning.
As a side line to this post, it has always been considered that the Knights Templar took their hidden treasure to Scotland. But there is evidence to suggest that another group of Templars fled to the East and found welcome in Russia. The war which the Catholic Church and France waged on the Templars shifted eastward, and the Protestant Reformation was a strategy by the alliance of the double-headed eagle to fragment the influence and power of the Church in the East, and create a beachhead from which a cultural and socioeconomic counter-offensive could be implemented.
The pattern is visible for us to consider. The Knights Templar flew the double-headed eagle emblem. Russia used the double-headed eagle emblem. The Holy Roman Empire, which replaced the Catholic Church in the East, also used the double-headed eagle emblem. The Scottish Rite used the double-headed eagle as its core symbol. The Scottish Rite was created as an extension of the Templar migration into Scotland as they escaped from land controlled by the Catholic Church and France.
Russia, America, and Scotland all supported anti-slavery movements, while the Church and Britain, along with France during periods of autonomous political control, all support the continuation of slavery. Scotland, in fact, was were some of the first court cases against slavery took place, and as such, was instrumental in building momentum for the eventual ending of slavery throughout the Western world.
This pattern of right-minded morality is aligned with the double-headed eagle symbolism throughout history. Almost without fail. While those attempting to overthrow and rule those of the double-headed eagle alliance have always supported slavery and other tools of suppression and manipulation of mass populations.
After the civil war the Anglo forces aligned with their American brethren and implemented policies and strategies to take back control of the nation through banking structures and the engineering of further cultural conflict. As these forces incrementally took control of the levers of government all attempts to strengthen a new alliance with Russia were attacked.
We see the same pattern emerging now as Donald Trump fights this very same establishment to heal America’s relationship with Russia. This will not be allowed to happen. The pattern repeats as well, as Russia, under Putin, has brought back the Romanov double-headed eagle, and Trump has reclaimed his families Scottish crest. This crest has a double-headed eagle.
All of this is taking place at the same time that America is once again embroiled in racial tension and talk of a second civil war is increasing. The establishment is doing everything it can to drive a wedge between Trump and Putin as well. These things are not a coincidence, and should be considered as an extension of the same pattern which has been taking place for not just centuries, but thousands of years.
So much more to come. – JC
