Agelbert NOTE: These are the arrogant beyond description, empathy deficit disordered, rapaciously predatory, insatiably greedy, depraved and murderous  humans that have caused the methodical destruction of the biosphere for ELITE Profit Over People and Planet.

Nearly 99% of all the environmental degradation championed by Capitalism, the bastard child of Monarchic Feudalism, whether the government is a monarchy or not, as in the USA, is the result of a pseudo-intellectual economic claptrap filled world view that these Cretins have foisted onto unversity "educated" humanity AND the scientific community.  😱  🤬

Investigating into today’s power structure in the UK and the role played by the British monarchy, this eye-opening documentary reveals the grossly disproportionate and undemocratic wealth and power of Britain’s Royal Family.

The programmer educates the viewers about the sheer wealth of Britain’s unelected monarchy and trails through the various assets and sources of income to which a random family, born into a historic mesh of multiracial kings and queens, unfairly believe they are entitled.

The UK with its dark and scattered history of political struggles has become the playground of monarchic power and influence. The documentary exposes all the main instruments of wealth of the British monarchy and provides clear commentary as to why Britain 😈👹🎩🍌🏴‍☠️🚩 may be the most contradictory democracy in the world.

SNIPPET:

The first genetic study of medieval human remains believed to be Crusaders confirms that warriors travelled from western Europe to the near East, where they mixed and had families with local people, and died together in battle. Researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and their collaborators analysed ancient DNA extracted from nine skeletons dating back to the 13th century, which were discovered in a burial pit in Sidon, Lebanon.

The results, published this month in the American Journal of Human Genetics, confirm that while the Crusaders mixed with local people and recruited them to their cause, their genetic presence in the region was short-lived.

“We know that Richard the Lionheart went to fight in the Crusades, but we don’t know much about the ordinary soldiers who lived and died there, and these ancient samples give us insights into that,” says senior author Chris Tyler-Smith, a genetics researcher at the Wellcome Sanger Institute.

“Our findings give us an unprecedented view of the ancestry of the people who fought in the Crusader army. And it wasn’t just Europeans,” says first author Marc Haber, also of the Wellcome Sanger Institute. “We see this exceptional genetic diversity in the Near East during medieval times, with Europeans, Near Easterners, and mixed individuals fighting in the Crusades and living and dying side by side.”

Archaeological evidence suggested that 25 individuals whose remains were found in a burial pit near a Crusader castle near Sidon, Lebanon. All of those found in the pit were male and had been violently killed during battle, as seen by the blunt force injuries to their skulls and other bones. Their bodies had been disposed of in the pit and burned.

Nearby, an isolated skull was found. The head may have been used as a projectile that was catapulted into the opposition’s camp to spread disease and slash morale, illustrating the brutality of the battles. Clues found alongside the skeletons in the pit, such as European shoe buckles, a coin and carbon-14 dating analysis, led archaeologists to believe the human remains were Crusaders.

Based on that, Tyler-Smith, Haber, and their colleagues conducted genetic analyses of the remains and were able to sequence the DNA of nine Crusaders. The team report that three individuals were Europeans of diverse origins, including Spain and Sardinia, four were near Easterners who had been recruited to the fight, and two individuals had mixed genetic ancestry, suggesting they were the descendants of mixed relationships between Crusaders and near Easterners.


Throughout history, other massive human migrations–like the movement of the Mongols through Asia under Genghis Khan and the arrival of colonial Iberians in South America–have fundamentally reshaped the genetic makeup of those regions. But the authors theorize that the Crusaders’ influence was likely shorter-lived because the Crusaders’ genetic traces are insignificant in people living in Lebanon today. “They made big efforts to expel them, and succeeded after a couple of hundred years,” says Tyler-Smith.

This ancient DNA can tell us things about history that modern DNA can’t. In fact, when the researchers sequenced the DNA of people living in Lebanon 2,000 years ago during the Roman period, they found that today’s Lebanese population is actually more genetically similar to the Roman Lebanese.

“If you look at the genetics of people who lived during the Roman period and the genetics of people who are living there today, you would think that there was just this continuity. You would think that nothing happened between the Roman period and today, and you would miss that for a certain period of time the population of Lebanon included Europeans and people with mixed ancestry,” says Haber.

These findings indicate that there may be other major events in human history that don’t show up in the DNA of people living today. And if those events aren’t as well-documented as the Crusades, we simply might not know about them. “Our findings suggest that it’s worthwhile looking at ancient DNA even from periods when it seems like not that much was going on genetically. Our history may be full of these transient pulses of genetic mixing that disappear without a trace,” says Tyler-Smith.

That the researchers were able to sequence and interpret the nine Crusaders’ DNA at all was also surprising.

She-Wolves: Medieval Queens with Helen Castor

From the submissive to the scandalous, medieval queens held a huge amount of influence over the politics of the day. In this episode of The Medieval Podcast, Daničle speaks with Helen Castor about queenship, the challenges of studying even the most prominent medieval women, and how their stories still resonate today.

Roy Cohn Documentary to Debut in 2019

Roy Cohn Documentary to Debut in 2019

Director Ivy Meeropol, whose grandparents Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were prosecuted by Cohn, will take a closer look at the controversial lawyer and fixer.

SHARE

Legendary and controversial attorney Roy Cohn was a power broker in the rough and tumble world of New York City business and politics. Senator Joseph R. McCarthy’s top counsel during investigations into Communist activities in the 1950s, Cohn is also known for being Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, fixer and mentor.

Focusing on key periods of his life, and drawing on extensive, newly unearthed archival material, a new documentary on Cohn’s life will debut on HBO in 2019. Director Ivy Meeropol (Indian Point, Heir to an Execution: A Granddaughter’s Story) spent much of her life feeling both repelled and fascinated by the man who prosecuted her grandparents, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, in what became known as the “atomic spies” case; Cohn obtained their convictions in court and then insisted on their executions.

The currently untitled film features recently discovered audiotapes of candid discussions between Cohn and journalist Peter Manso, recorded at the height of Cohn’s career. With a lens on Cohn’s family, friends, colleagues, employees and lovers, as well as those targeted by him, it includes his time in Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he shared a house with Manso and Norman Mailer, and was considerably more open about his sexuality than in other settings.

Playwright Tony Kushner, whose Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winning play Angels in Americafeatures Cohn as a main character, and actor Nathan Lane, who starred in it as Cohn, also provide interviews, with Lane giving insights into how Cohn wielded power through invective and innuendo.

The documentary was directed and produced by Ivy Meeropol; producers, Julie Goldman, Christopher Clements and Carolyn Hepburn; co-producer, Peter Manso; director of photography, Dan Gold; editor, Anne Alvergue. For HBO: executive producers, Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller.

This clip from a 1 hour PBS television documentary I made called " How Hitler Lost the War."  The film takes a unique point of view. Rather than talking about who won the war, my colleagues and I explored what Hitler did that helped lose Germany the war. Although it happened so long ago, it is still a frightening story. Some of the interviews I conducted in this segment were fascinating to me and I hope they are to you as well.

What Caused the American Civil War?

By: Joe Ryan
    
Racism caused the American Civil War, plain and simple: a racism that transcended social culture, geographic section, and political orientation, and became entangled with the creation of the Constitution and the Union.

SNIPPET:

“Article VII. The ratification of the conventions of nine states, shall be sufficient for the establishment of this constitution between the states so ratifying the same.”

The government of the United States to be spontaneously reconstituted upon the vote of nine states: so much for the “inviolability” of words. Here is the explicit semantic seed 💣 of civil war and the implicit manifestation of the ultimate axiom of political science. Despite the solemn pledge, four times repeated, that the Union was to be “perpetual” as framed by the Articles, which required unanimous consent of the states to be changed,  the states of the perpetual Union, not consenting, would suddenly be out into the cold.

It’s not surprisingly, then, that soon after the Constitution became the supreme law of the land, there emerged an irrepressible struggle between the two sections for political supremacy: one side pressing for the restriction of slavery, the other side pressing for its expansion. As the  threat of war with the Great Powers faded, the North shrugged off its constitutional commitments about slavery and began sticking knives into the South. The South, too entwined with an alien population of Africans to get rid of it,  was left with no rational choice, but to seize upon the example set by the founders and declare, by the sovereign power of its people,  independence from the North.

The Fledgling United States, 1787

When the Constitution became operative, in 1789, the United States was composed of six slave states: Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia; and seven essentially Free states—Massachusetts Bay, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Providence Plantation, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

(See, Clayton E. Cramer, Black Demographic Data, A Sourcebook (1997))

Between 1789 and 1819, operating on the basis of equal division, the Congress admitted into the Union five Free states—Vermont, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Maine—and five Slave states: Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Agelbert NOTE: This a book, not a Documentary. I post a link to it here, plus the brief explanatory video, because it is relevant to the previous post about the political tensions that eventually broke out in Civil War.

The titles of the pre-Civil War Political Parties mentioned in this story, though identical to the titles of the modern Democratic Party and the Republican Party, are irrelevant to the present.

Back then, the Republican Party was ANTI-slavery and the Democratic Party was PRO-Slavery, PRO-Sexually abuse and forcibly impregnate the Plantation slave girls and PRO-Vicious Cruelty over male slaves. How times have changed.
