Secrets of America’s Dead Presidents

AMERICA'S DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS -- Tucked inside Lincoln's frontal lobe at Mount Rushmore in Keystone, South Dakota, is a secret, inaccessible-to-the-public chamber. The vault was designed by the monument's sculptor, Ku Klux Klansman Gutzon Borglum, who envisioned it as a room dedicated to the “history” of the United States.

AMWS July 4, 2020, Trail of Tears, Turtle Island – @realDonaldTrump’s dream for July 4th   Independence may be his scariest nightmare. More secret service agents have tested positive for COVID-19 as “the beast” moves beyond his 42-month grant of power. On the way to Mount Rushmore, advisors are discovering America amidst secrets of dead presidents.

Pilots for Air Force One plotting a course for the nearest military airstrip must consider real facts about the hallowed Black Hills of South Dakota and somehow present security options in reality TV terminology.  

Ellsworth Air Force Base is named after one of their own.  Brigadier General Richard Elmer Ellsworth (July 18, 1911 – March 18, 1953) was a United States Air Force commander during the early part of the Cold War.  

Ironically, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin was born on 7 October 1952, just five months before Ellsworth died. Ellsworth died on a simulated mission where the terms “Celestial Navigation,” along with “Kairos” and “Chronos” time may unlock some secrets of dead presidents and perhaps quantify reparations for America’s legendary stolen people.

Celestial navigation is the use of angular measurements (sights) between celestial bodies and the visible horizon to locate one's position in the world, on land as well as at sea. At a given time, any celestial body is located directly over one point on the Earth's surface. The latitude and longitude of that point is known as the celestial body's geographic position (GP), the location of which can be determined from tables in the nautical or air almanac for that year.  All true, perhaps, unless air almanacs recorded partial truths about the geography below. 

For example, the infamous Trail of Tears was established 190 years ago when President Andrew Jackson signed Senate Bill 102, i.e., the Indian Removal Act (IRA) of 1830.

Here’s the scary part that’s bringing living presidents to their knees.  You might recall @realDonaldTrump lighting the first firecracker of the season, threatening to rally white supremacists near Black Wall Street.  Imagine, if you can, the lone ranger behind his COVID-19 mask, beneath his inherited sheet, crash landing on the Trail of Tears on his way to the Black Hills.

The Indian Removal Act forced primarily five Southeastern indigenous nations, including the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole, as well as the Fox, Kickapoo, Lenape, Miami, Omaha, Ottawa, Potawatomie, Sauk, Shawnee, and Wyandot (along with a few other smaller ones), to trek up to 2,200 miles- on foot!- from as far as Florida to what’s now known as Oklahoma where the government’s newly created so-called Indian Territory was established.

The term, “Southeastern” in indigenous geography, relates to a significant region on the planet Earth.  The name  “Turtle Island” is a name for North America, used by some Indigenous and First Nations people and by some Indigenous rights activists.
On another part, in the same “Southern” region of “Turtle Island,”  The Lakota Sioux camped in the winter in the Black Hills, following the bison migration from Canada to Mexico.

The first recorded history of occupation came with the Lakota’s first interaction with “America” in 1804.  That’s around the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
Lewis and Clark refrained from entering the Black Hills because they lacked governmental jurisdiction and feared the deadly consequences of entering sacred land.

Moreover, the Teton Sioux first embraced Lewis and Clark with gifts and food and in return, Lewis and Clark notified the Indians that the United States controlled much of the Sioux lands under the newly obtained Louisiana Territory by distributing medals to symbolize peace and American citizenship.

@realDonaldTrump’s dream of becoming the fifth face of Mount Rushmore is now his nightmare and an invaluable lesson learned for all the little children learning how to “Make America Great Again.  The fifth face on what we know as Mount Rushmore is either the image of its sculptor’s vision of America, or a reflection on values for #WeThePeople.
