Pledge of Allegiance (& the military salute) was the origin of Adolf
Hitler's "Nazi" salute under the National Socialist German Workers Party
& Edward Bellamy touted National Socialism and the police state in
the USA decades before their dogma was exported to Germany. They influenced
the NSDAP, its dogma, symbols and rituals. http://rexcurry.net/police-state.html
The swastika, although an ancient symbol, was also used
to represent "S" letters joined for "socialism" under the National Socialist
German Workers Party (Nazis), similar to the alphabetical symbolism for
the SS Division, the SA, the NSV, and the VW logo (the letters "V" and
"W" joined for "Volkswagen"). http://rexcurry.net/bookchapter4a1a2a1.html
Many popular books study Vampires. The vast audience
attracted to the subject of vampires know them mostly in fictional,
one-dimensional form. Yet the truth behind the historical characters
is as fascinating as any fabricated account of supernatural persona.
The original Dracula (Vlad the Impaler) was an inventively
cruel ruler of Wallachia in the mid-15th century. Vlad Dracula
is estimated to have annihilated 50,000 people --one-tenth of his
Vlad's death toll was greatly exceeded in modern
times. The worst blood-letting in history was during the socialist
Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million slaughtered
under the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR); ~50
million under the Peoples Republic of China (PRC); ~20 million under
the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSGWP). They practiced
human sacrifice on a scale never before seen. http://rexcurry.net/wholecaust-museum.html
One definition of vampire is: a person who preys
ruthlessly upon others. Under the definition, socialists
ARE vampires. Under that definition, the worst vampires were Stalin
(USSR), Mao (PRC) and the leader of the NSGWP. Could they have
been Vlad's descendants, his creations, or his followers? http://rexcurry.net/socialists.jpg
Most books about vampires are well-researched in the sense that
they reference actual historical events. The books are usually poorly
researched in the sense that they should tell more about the real-life
links to the worst vampires, tortures and slaughters in history. The
books might inspire people to learn more about the truths behind the
mysteries. It is hoped that newer versions of popular books are improved
with greater emphasis on factual matters. Truth is more frightening
than fiction. http://rexcurry.net/666-mark-of-the-beast-revelation-occult.html
Also see the book "Dracula is Dead" about Romania after the overthrow of
dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in December 1989, ending more than forty years
of Socialist totalitarianism.
Another example is the vampire empire of the Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics. It imposed a self-proclaimed dictatorship of the proletariat.
It was implemented by V. I. Lenin (the first premier of the
USSR) after the 1917 revolution and exacerbated by Stalin, and it
was a true dictatorship of the proletariat, with the enslavement
of everyone. In later decades, the rationale for repression outlined
there was advanced again and again by dictatorial socialist governments
as they argued that the small vampire vanguard was necessary to rule
the masses for their own good, and even against their will. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html
The letter V as the first initial of the name for
Lenin might just as well have meant vampire. Many people forget
that Lenin had this first name: Vladimir. It is the same name as
Vlad III Dracula (also known as Vlad Tepes, 1431-1476) the old source
for the vampire and dracula terror.
Vladimir Ilich Lenin was born Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov.
Lenin was not his real name. He used the initials and the new name
to hide his past and his true nature. Examples that exist of his
signature show both Vladimir and Wladimir, similar to how the original
Vlad III Dracula was known.
Vlad I. Lenin and Vlad III Dracula have striking
similarities in appearance and in deeds. Vlad III Dracula was
the old source for the vampire terror and Vlad I. Lenin is the modern
source for the vampire terror. Vlad III Dracula ruled, fed and killed
in Transylvania, part of Romania, part of the Caucasus Mountains or
Caucasia, and a Slavic part of the former vampire empire of the Union
of Soviet Socialist Republics. Vlad I. Lenin also ruled, fed and killed
to a much worse degree than did Vlad III Dracula, and Lenin did so in
the even larger killing field of the entire Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics (which eventually included the Caucasus, Romania and Transylvania).
The dictionary states that "vampire" is a word of
Slavic origin. The word "Slav" is the origin of the word
"slave." The word "slave" did not originally refer to African-Americans.
It originally referred to Caucasians (people from the Caucasus
or Caucasia) who were enslaved in medieval times of the dark ages
by people like Vlad III Dracula. Those terms are still used by
knowledgeable people when referring to the acts of Vlad I. Lenin and
the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. http://rexcurry.net/crucible.html
Vlad III Dracula was also known as Vlad the Impaler.
He used impalement as a method of torture and execution. Victims
were skewered on long stakes that were planted in the ground in
his killing fields. The piercing was done through the sides or the
rear entrance. It could be done so that the victim was still
alive and would be displayed until death and thereafter.
Impalement was a bizarre and ironic evolution of
crucifixion. Emperor Constantine I (also known as Constantine the
Great 272–337 A.D.), for reasons of Christian piety, banned crucifixion
as a means of capital punishment. Impalement was also adopted because
it was not considered crucifixion. http://rexcurry.net/ghosts-hauntings-spirits-haunted-houses.html
Constantine claimed to have a vision before a battle in which
he saw a cross as a sword and the words "In this sign conquer." Constantine
instructed his men to fashion a sword in the form of a cross and it
was carried into victorious battle. It is known as "Constantine's
Sword." Thus the cross, a form of execution and death before Constantine,
was transformed into another form of execution and death under Constantine.
Under Constantine a person would not be killed on a cross, but
he would be killed or decapitated with a cross-shaped sword.
It was under Constantine that the cross became popularized
as a symbol of Christianity. Before then the common symbols of Christianity
included a fish, a lamb, and a shepherd. The crucifix and the cross spread,
even as modern jewelry (it is interesting to note that after the guillotine
was invented, jewelry (including earrings) were made in the form of miniature
guillotines, in a fashion that is similar to modern jewelry in the form
of small crosses and crucifixes, also tools of execution similar to the
guillotine). Cross-shaped swords were the weapons of the crusades.
Crusades were not just about killing muslims. Crusades were
about killing anyone who was not a christian (that included the slaughter
The Book of Revelation, chapter 13 has repeated references to the
forced worship of the dragon and the beast, and the persecution and death
of anyone who would not worship ( http://rexcurry.net/666-mark-of-the-beast-revelation-occult.html
). That occurred in ancient Rome, and under Soviet Socialism, German
National Socialism and under the Peoples' Republic of China. Even today,
children in government schools in the USA are led every morning in robotically
chanting in worship of the enormous beast of government as they gesture
and chant to its flag with their hands over their hearts in a form of
psychic vampirism (In the past, the gesture during the Pledge of Allegiance
was the military salute extended out to the stiff-armed salute - the salute
adopted later by German socialists in chanting and worship toward their
swastika flag). See the video documentary http://youtube.com/watch?v=BssWWZ3XEe4
A common legend is that Vampires feared the cross or crucifix.
Movies depict vampires recoiling in horror at the sight of a cross.
However, Vlad III Dracula is remembered as a Christian knight and
for his crusades. In modern times, under the leader of the National
Socialist German Workers' Party, the cross was worshiped as the
notorious symbol of the Party. The group called their symbol the
Hakenkreuz, not the swastika. Hakenkreuz means "hooked cross."
Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, the
noted cryptographer / symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (Swastika Secrets)
discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists
to represent "S" letters for their "socialism." With a 45 degree
turn of his Hakenkreuz, the leader of German National Socialists combined
the cross with collectivism, merged church and state, meshed
religion and socialism, and mandated the worship of government and
chanting to its swastika flag. It is only one of many forms of occult socialism.
There is support for Dr. Curry's work in books by
other authors who believe the Holocaust under the National Socialist
German Workers Party was an Inquisition (including religious persecution)
undertaken by the leader of German National Socialism under his religious
Many religious people refused to perform the straight-arm
salute to the hooked-cross flag of German National Socialism. Those
people (e.g. Jehovah's Witnesses) considered it to be the sacrilegious
worship of government and socialism. Those people were persecuted
and many were killed. They were also persecuted in the USA
for refusing to perform the straight-arm salute in worship of the national
flag and the government.
There are many shocking links to the Freemasons,
the United States of America, and the robotic chanting of the Pledge
of Allegiance in the USA (origin of the straight-arm salute of the
Authors of books about vampires and other current
bestsellers (e.g. The Da Vinci Code, The Holy Blood And The Holy
Grail, etc) make their stories relevant to current events. Such stories
are relevant to the fact that the present government in the USA
is anti libertarian and is out-socializing the previous administration
by more than double and growing (in social spending alone). In the
USA, social security cards are known as the "we eat our young" cards (and
the same slur is used for the government's debt).
There are terrifying parallels in the philosophies
and religions of Vlad III Dracula, Vlad I. Lenin, Joseph Stalin,
Karl Marx, Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and the leader of the
National Socialist German Workers Party.
They were all Christians. Vlad III Dracula (a.k.a.
Vlad the Impaler 1431-1476) was Catholic and is remembered as a
Christian knight and for his crusades. Vlad I. Lenin was baptized
into the Russian Orthodox Church. The Russian Orthodox Church traces
its roots to the Baptism of Kiev in 988, when Prince Vladimir I officially
adopted the religion of the Byzantine Empire as the state religion
of the Rus' state. It traces its apostolic succession through the Patriarch
of Constantinople (named after Constantine). The city of St.
Petersburg (on the Gulf of Finland) was renamed Leningrad. Vladimir
Putin can be seen in photographs with Alexius I of the Roman Orthodox
Church. Joseph Stalin attended Tiflis Theological Seminary, a Russian
Orthodox institution via a scholarship that he was awarded (he was
also paid for singing in the choir). His mother wanted him to be a
priest even after he had become leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics. When Vlad I. Lenin died (January 1924), he left behind a
document known as "Lenin's Testament." Stalin organized Lenin's
funeral and made a speech professing undying loyalty to Lenin, in almost
religious terms. Marx's father converted to Christianity and Karl
Marx joined the official denomination of the Prussian state, Lutheranism,
and he was thus in a small minority of Lutherans in a predominantly
Roman Catholic region. The head of the NSGWP was raised as a Roman
Catholic by his parents, as was customary where he lived. His mother
wanted him to become a priest. He saw the swastika symbol while he was
a young student with the Benedictins at the Abbey of Lambach-am-Traum,
in upper Austria. The symbol was engraved on the four corners of the monastery.
It was not called a swastika. German National Socialists called the
symbol that they worshippd a Hakenkreuz. It was a type of cross.
It translates as "hooked cross." In some ways, the head of the
NSGWP did become a priest. http://rexcurry.net/swastikacross.html
Vlad III Dracular began a six-year period of rule in 1456,
just three years after Constantinople fell to the Turks. Vlad
went to war in the winter of 1461-62. Vlad's battles drew the attention
of several European rulers, including the Pope. When the opposing
Sultan's army reached Vlad's capital city this is what they saw: "He
marched on for about five kilometers when he saw his men impaled; the
Sultan's army came across a field with stakes, about three kilometers
long and one kilometer wide. And there were large stakes on which they
could see the impaled bodies of men, women, and children, about twenty
thousand of them, as they said.....There were babies clinging to their
mothers on the stakes, and birds had made nests in their breasts." (from
the Greek historian Chalkondyles).
Of couse, 20,000 is small compared to the hundreds of millions
killed by modern vampires in the socialist Wholecaust.
The Flag of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
was the hammer and sickle on a red background. Red is blood.
The sickle is the scythe of the grim reaper. The hammer is
the only method of killing vampires, a form of impalement by driving
a stake through their hearts. The vampire Vlad used a more horrific
form of impalement against his human victims. With its leadership
of grim reapers, the USSR harvested the largest crop of corpses in history.
Vlad Lenin helped to establish Red Square outside
the Kremlin in Moscow. Lenin established the Gulag (death
camps, slave camps, concentration camps) in 1920 or earlier. Millions
of victims disappeared in the darkest of night.
Socialists re-combined church and state through
the worship of government, socialism and death. Blood-sucking
socialists preach sacrifice of others and self sacrifice even to
the ultimate degree: death.
Vampire socialists are necrophiliacs who love death
Vampires socialists are misanthropes who see themselves
as a superior race to the masses. They obsess about class and
they mentally view people in such categories.
Many socialists say that violence and death are the
only ways that their dogma and their dominance can be achieved.
Their misanthropy claims that it is evolution or natural selection
or that it is inevitable.
They obsess about militarism and they use it to
pursue their domination via the mass slaughter of conquest and
war. They glorify their militarism with absurd parades of their
killing machines. Notorious examples include the former Union
of Soviet Socialist Republics and the National Socialist German
Workers Party. Socialists become schooled in the martial arts of war.
Vampire socialists helped start WWII when the National
Socialist German Workers' Party and the Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics joined together as allies in 1939 to invade Poland, in
a plan to divide up Europe. http://rexcurry.net/socialistwar.html
Vlad I. Lenin was the main theorist of Leninism,
which he described as an adaptation of his vampiric dogma to "the
age of imperialism." He wanted a well-trained party of professional
revolutionaries to hasten the ascension of his vampires over the world.
The American socialists Francis Bellamy (author of
the Pledge of Allegiance) and Edward Bellamy (author of the book
Looking Backward) called their dogma: military socialism. They
idolized the military and they wanted all of society to ape the
military in what they called: the Industrial Army.
They wanted the government to take over all schools
and use the schools to turn students into the industrial army
of military socialism. They wanted the government flag in
In the early pledge, the military salute was then
extended out toward the flag. In actual use, the second
part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down
by children extending the military salute while perfunctorily performing
the forced ritual chanting. Dr. Rex Curry showed that, due to
the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the
military salute led to the salute of the National Socialist German
Workers Party. The NSGWP salute is an extended military salute
via the pledge. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html
Mars is the god of militarism and war. It is
the origin of the term martial arts (military arts or war arts).
Vampire socialists adore the god of war.
Mars is the red planet, the planet of blood. Vampires
socialists tried to make planet earth as red as mars. They did
it with the blood of millions slaughtered. Much about socialism is
a symbol of their love of blood.
Those ideas lead some people to the theory that
vampire socialists are extraterrestrials (e.g. Martians) who came
to earth for conquest and to establish a vampire empire. The
theory holds that when they came to earth they pretended to want
to aid humans with books entitled: How to Serve Humans. But
the title is misleading. It is a cook book.
They are cannibals and they cause cannibalism. They
feed on the blood, sweat and tears of humans. They crucify capitalism
in the production of food (and everything), and mass famine results.
They force humans and non-socialists to adopt cannibalism in desperate
attempts to survive.
Seven million persons perished from 1932-33 in the
famine that resulted in Europe's "breadbasket" after the Union
of Soviet Socialist Republics imposed collectivist land management
in the Ukraine. By the spring of 1933, an estimated 25,000 people
died every day in the Ukraine. It is the same socialism that
resulted in 27 million people starving to death in 1958 in the so-called
"Great Leap Forward" in China. The Great Leap Forward used the
same economic reasoning used in "Looking Backward" the book by Edward
The German Saxons of Transylvania were victims of
invasions by Vlad III Dracula into what was an independent state.
Vlad did not support a free market economy and he imposed harsh taxes,
duties and tariffs. They caused great poverty and suffering.
Vlad the impaler was said to consume bread that
he dipped into the blood of his victims as he dined among their
impaled bodies. Old drawings depict such scenes.
In 1459 Dracula attacked Brasov, burned an entire
village, and impaled many people there on a Hill. The horror
is shown in a woodcut in a tract from Nuremberg in 1499. The image
shows Vlad at a table eating while impaled victims are dying around
him, and while his aids hack off limbs. The tract provides this description:
"...he impaled people and roasted them and boiled their heads in a
kettle and skinned people and hacked them to pieces like cabbage. He
also roasted the children of mothers and they had to eat the children
themselves." A woodcut (Strasbourg) exists from the following year
with another such scene. Vlad's legend also spread from German sources,
dating from as early as 1463 (while Vlad was still alive). Dracula's
Homepage website states, "....some of the earliest secular texts to roll
off the presses were horror stories about Vlad Dracula. Written in German
and published at major centres such as Nuremburg, Bamberg, and Strassburg,
these had such unsavory titles as The Frightening and Truly Extraordinary
Story of a Wicked Blood-drinking Tyrant Called Prince Dracula. Researchers
have discovered at least thirteen of these pamphlets dating from 1488
to 1521." A German tract (Nuremberg 1488) states: "He had some of
his people buried naked up to the navel and had them shot at. He also had
some roasted and flayed." The same tract adds: "About three hundred
gypsies came into his country. Then he selected the best three of them and
had them roasted; these the others had to eat."
Ritualized cannibalism exists in the historic religious
beliefs of Vlad I. Lenin, Vlad III Dracula, Karl Marx, Francis
Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and the leader of the National Socialist
German Workers Party. They were all Christians. Vlad III
Dracula (1431-1476) is remembered as a Christian knight and for
his crusades. Vlad I. Lenin was baptized into the Russian Orthodox
Church. One of its religious practices is communion in the form of
a small piece of blessed bread soaked in wine. Another central feature
of the church is the altar which, in history, was actually used for
blood sacrifices. The Russian Orthodox Church traces its roots to the
Baptism of Kiev in 988, when Prince Vladimir I officially adopted
the religion of the Byzantine Empire as the state religion of the Rus'
state. It traces its apostolic succession through the Patriarch of Constantinople
(named after Constantine). The city of St. Petersburg (on the
Gulf of Finland) was renamed Leningrad. Vladimir Putin can be seen
in photographs with Alexius I of the Roman Orthodox Church. Marx's
father converted to Christianity and Karl Marx joined the official
denomination of the Prussian state, Lutheranism, and he was thus in
a small minority of Lutherans in a predominantly Roman Catholic region.
The head of the NSGWP was raised as a Roman Catholic by his parents,
as was customary where he lived.
An internet website, Dracula's homepage, states:
"In 1431, the senior Vlad was summoned to Nuremberg by Sigismund,
the Holy Roman Emperor, to receive a unique honor. He was one of
a number of princes and vassals initiated by the Emperor into the
Order of the Dragon, an institution, similar to other chivalric orders
of the time, modeled on the Order of St George. It was created in 1408
by Sigismund and his queen Barbara Cilli mainly for the purpose of
gaining protection for the royal family; it also required its initiates
to defend Christianity and to do battle against its enemies, principally
the Turks. As an indication of his pride in the Order, Vlad took on
the nickname 'Dracul.' (The Wallachian word 'dracul' was derived from
the Latin 'draco' meaning 'the dragon.')" The younger Vlad used
the term "Dracula," meaning "son of Dracul" or "son of the Dragon."
A historic religious doctrine involves the belief
that bread and wine change into flesh and blood. The flesh
and blood are then consumed by the believers. Followers of the
doctrine participate in elaborate group ceremonies (en mass) concerning
the act. The act is required to be repeated regularly for their entire
Those historic relgious beliefs developed from the
Last Supper. The Holy Grail was the container used by Jesus
at the Last Supper. The nexus of Joseph of Arimathea with the
Grail legend dates from Robert de Boron's Joseph d'Arimathie (late
twelfth century) in which Joseph receives the Grail from an apparition
of Jesus and sends it with his followers to Great Britain. Building
upon that story, later writers recounted how Joseph used the Grail
to catch Christ's blood.
The historic religious ceremony that developed is
often performed in the presence of a large crucifix that graphically
displays the namesake of their religion upon a cross, with
nails through his feet and hands/wrists (another form of impalement).
Followers believe that the namesake of their religion was sacrificed,
or engaged in agonizing self-sacrifice, that could save humanity through
the power of belief and/or emulation. Followers sometimes wear
small versions of the event on necklaces. They believe that the namesake
of their religion died, came back to life and was able to live forever.
Followers believe that their group ritual with wine and bread
will help them to do the same.
There are some legends saying that Vlad III Dracula,
after being taken captive by the Hungarians, was buried alive.
The next day, they dug up the spot where he was buried and found no
corpse. It is interesting to note that in 1448, upon returning to Wallachia,
Vlad discovered that his father had been assassinated and his older
brother Mircea had been buried alive by the nobles of Târgoviste
who had supported a rival leader.
It is difficult to know what the above religious
doctrine meant in the demented minds of Vlad III Dracula, Vlad I.
Lenin, Karl Marx, Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and the leader of
German National Socialists. They were preying people. They ruthlessly
preyed upon others.
Similar historic religious doctrines also drove believers
to use mortification of the flesh, flagellation, hairshirts, and
another form of cilice (a spiked leg band), etc.
The symbol of German National Socialists (the swastika)
was not called a swastika by German National Socialists. In
German it was a Hakenkreuz. It was a type of cross. Hakenkreuz
means hooked cross.
The head of the NSGWP saw the Hakenkreuz while he
was a young student with the Benedictins at the Abbey of Lambach-am-Traum,
in upper Austria. The symbol was engraved on the four corners
of the monastery, where it had been sculpted several years before,
upon the direction of the abbot, Theodorich Hagen.
The hooked cross of German National Socialism was
manipulated to combine its religious meaning with the worship
of socialism and government. The head of the NSGWP turned
it 45 degrees to the horizontal and oriented it to always point clockwise.
He manipulated his hooked cross to turn it into the overlapping letter
S to symbolize his vampiric socialism, as shown by Professor Rex Curry.
The German National Socialist leader altered his own signature to
use the same stylized letter S to symbolize socialism. Similar alphabetic
symbolism still shows on Volkswagens. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html
The hooked cross also symbolizes crossed sickles
or scythes of the grim reaper, so that the German National Socialist
Symbol mirrored the symbol of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
The American National Socialist Edward Bellamy also
combined his religion with socialism in his book The Religion
of Solidarity (1874). He argued that individuality is
a delusion and/or is unimportant. He advocated that each individual
subsume himself/herself to anything and everything else, as repeated
later in his book Looking Backward.
In Mein Kampf, the author cryptically described
the new hooked-cross flag of German National Socialism and its
red color: "In red we see the social idea of the movement...." (pg.
The German National Socialist leader obsessed about
blood and death. He would carry the Blutfahne (Blood flag), a Swastika
flag which was covered in the blood of his cohorts from the attempted
Beer Hall Putsch in Munich, Germany on November 9, 1923. The
bloody flag was treated as a sacred object, and was carried at NSGWP
ceremonies. One of the most visible uses of the flag was at the annual
socialist party rallies at Nuremburg, where the leader touched other
national socialist banners with the Blutfahne, thus sanctifying the
new flags with the old.
The death's head insignia (Totenkopf or dead-head,
a skull and crossed bones) was used by the NSGWP. It was
used on black uniforms giving a sinister appearance that was appropriate
for the vampiric nature of the German socialists.
The NSGWP leader followed the lead of Vlad I. Lenin
in constructing death camps used to kill people they considered
inferior. Both of them followed in the footsteps of Vlad III
Dracular's homepage states: "According to an early
Romanian chronicle, in the spring of 1457, Vlad invited the nobles
[of Tirgoviste] and their families to an Easter feast. After his
guests had finished their meal, Vlad's soldiers surrounded them, rounded
up the able-bodied and marched them fifty miles up the Arges River
to Poenari, where they were forced to build his mountain fortress. His
prisoners labored under very difficult conditions for many months. Those
who survived the grueling ordeal were impaled."
Legends state that Vlad III Dracula once noticed
that vagrants, beggars and cripples had become numerous in his land.
Vlad invited all the poor and sick in Wallachia to join him for a
huge feast, declaring that no one should go hungry in his land. As
the poor and crippled arrived, they were ushered into a great hall
where a feast was prepared for them. Vlad's guests ate and drank
late into the night, when Vlad himself made an appearance. "What
else do you desire? Do you want to be without cares, lacking nothing
in this world?" asked Vlad. When they answered that such was indeed
their wish, Vlad had the hall boarded up and set on fire. None escaped
the flames. Vlad claimed that he did it "in order that they represent
no further burden to other men so that no one will be poor in my realm."
This deed is also attributed to the bishop Hatto of Mainz.
All vampire socialists ask the masses "Do you want
to be without cares, lacking nothing in this world?" and they promise
it in socialism, and then slaughter by the millions all who are
It is unclear why Vlad became the source for vampire
legends in the late 1800's. The events in the life of Vlad occurred
in a region of the world that was still basically medieval even during
that time. Similar medieval conditions were re-created under
the modern vampire Vlad I. Lenin and the former Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics, where society actually regressed, as if moving backward
in time, during the 1900's.
The phrase “From each according to his ability;
to each according to his needs” has an ominous tone from the mouth
of a vampire. It is a trick phrase because, when compared with
vampires, humans have no abilities. And vampires have one very
special and overriding need: the blood, sweat and tears of humans and
Despite their inhuman cruelty, socialists are still
admired by many people. As in the old legends, vampire socialists
seem to have hypnotic powers over others. They mesmerize millions
of people into becoming socialism's willing executioners http://rexcurry.net/socialism.html
They paralyze their prey with fear and terror.
Madame Lenin, wife to Vlad, was pale and assisted
her demonic husband in his passion. The Lenins had no children.
Their lives were spent obsessing about their vampire empire.
There is no doubt that Lenin's desire to enslave
the world crystallized at the time of his brother's death. His
eldest brother, Alexander, was arrested for a plot threatening the
life of Tsar Alexander III to overthrow the government (the old government
that seems angelic compared to the death toll of 62 million people
slaughtered under the empire created by Vlad I. Lenin). When his mother
arrived he burst into tears and immediately confessed everything to
her. At the trial he made no defense and asked no mercy. He was hanged
in the courtyard of Schlusselberg fortress on May 20, 1886.
The death of his brother transformed Vlad. A
famous painting by Belousov, printed as propaganda in millions
of government textbooks depicted young Vlad and his mother grieving
the loss of elder brother Alexander. The painting is called: We
will follow a different path. They followed a different path
leading to the worst slaughter in all history.
Many modern popular books have been written about
the historic religious beliefs mentioned above and how they inspired
secret societies, sinister plots and many deaths.
The Priory of Sion has, since the 1970s, been
an elusive protagonist in many conspiratorial works of pseudohistory.
The Prieuré de Sion created by Pierre Plantard is a hoax.
Usually rendered in English translation as Priory of Sion or Priory
of Zion, it has been characterized as the most powerful secret society
A priory is a residence in a monastery governed
by a prior (superior). A monastery is a community of persons
who live give up individuality to live collectively, through self-sacrifice
and they often take vows to live in poverty, and give up private
property. The term "monastery" comes from the root "mono"
as meaning living as one. In a free society, such a manner of
living is voluntary and rare. Under socialism, such a manner
of living is involuntary and is imposed on everyone by government.
It results in widespread poverty.
Sion or Zion has several definitions in dictionaries
including: utopia or an idealized, harmonious community (that
concept is also used as a reference to the historic land of Israel).
The USSR, PRC, and NSGWP all promised utopia or an idealized,
harmonious community. The activities that followed bore no
resemblance to a harmonious society.
The articles of the Priory of Sion as indicated
in its Statute desired the creation of a monastic order -but the
activities of the Priory of Sion bore no resemblance whatsoever
to the objectives as outlined in its Statutes. Article VII
stated that members were expected "to carry out good deeds" and "teach
the truth" and "defend the weak and the oppressed." The statutes
of the USSR, PRC and NSGWP all stated the same expectations, which were
repeated Pravda (truth) and the other government-run media.
Authors who have written about the Priory of Sion
assert that its ultimate goals are:
* the founding of an empire
that would become the next hyperpower and usher in a new world order
of peace and prosperity;
* the establishment of a messianic
mystery state religion; and
* the grooming and installing
of a messiah or "Rex Deus" or "King God."
Stalin, Mao and the head of the NSGWP each had a
messiah complex and installed themselves as Rex Deus and required
worship and complete obediance and sacrifice, even to the ultimate
self-sacrifice by millions: death.
The authors Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and
Henry Lincoln (The Holy Blood And The Holy Grail) claimed that
the Priory of Sion had a long and illustrious history dating back
to the First Crusade starting with the creation of the Knights Templar
as its military and financial front.
They wrote that the Roman Catholic Church tried
to kill off all remnants of the society and their guardians, the
Cathars and the Templars, during the Inquisitions, in order to maintain
The modern socialist Inquisition also tried to kill
off all remants of capitalism in order to maintain power. The
socialist Inquisition killed millions while the old Inquisition
killed few in comparison.
There were four old Inquisitions; in chronological
order, they were the Medieval Inquisition, the Spanish Inquisition,
the Portuguese Inquisition and the Roman Inquisition. They started
with the Medieval Inquisition in 1184 and ended with the Spanish Inquisition
in 1834. One would be incorrect to presume that the old Inquistions
were unrelated to each other, or that they were unrelated to the modern
The modern socialist Inquisitions also consist of
four major examples: 65 million slaughtered under the Union of
Soviet Socialist Republics; 35 million under the Peoples Republic
of China; 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers Party;
4 million under the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. They were the four
horsemen of the apocalypse.
The Inquisitions were institutions charged with
the eradication of heresy through violent coercion.
Heresy (from the Greek verb for, "to choose") is
a natural obstacle to total control by anyone with power. If enough
people decide to think for themselves, the absolute authority of socialism
is threatened. Under socialism permanent structures came into being
to combat heresies. Socialists deemed it poper to convert, sometimes
by violent means, people who maintained divergent opinions from the government.
Socialist leaders often carried out the torture and the killings
although sometimes eager citizens were allowed to contribute, a role of
great prestige in the socialist Wholecaust. http://rexcurry.net/socialism.html
Some Christian fundamentalist authors like Jack

In the Russian Orthodox Church there are no pews. Worshipers

Confession must precede communion, either before

fasted since midnight.
Sometimes the bottoms of the crosses found on Russian
churches will be adorned with a crescent. In 1552, Tsar Ivan IV
(the Terrible) conquered the city of Kazan which had been under the
rule of Muslem Tatars, and in remembrance of this, he decreed that from
henceforth the Islamic crescent be placed at the bottom of the crosses
to signify the victory of the cross (Christianity) over the crescent
The following is from Dracula's homepage:
We do know that Vlad later married Ilona Szilagy, who was
related to Matthias Corvinus, the king of Hungary who had placed
Vlad under arrest following his escape from Wallachia in 1462. It
appears that Corvinus made an arrangement with Vlad to restore him
to his throne. To strengthen the bond, Vlad was offered a royal bride.
After his death, Vlad's wife was left with his three sons. Mihnea, the
eldest, was from his union with the Transylvanian noblewoman. He had
two sons by his Hungarian wife -- Vlad, and a second whose name is unknown.
Only Mihnea succeeded in gaining the Wallachian throne. During his brief
rule from 1508-1509, he showed signs that he could be as atrocious as his
infamous father; nicknamed "Mihnea the Bad," he is reputed to have cut
off the noses and lips of his political enemies. He was assassinated in
1510 on the steps of a church in Sibiu.
According to genealogical research conducted by historians
Radu Florescu and Raymond McNally (published in their 1989 book
Dracula: Prince of Many Faces), the Romanian male line
died out in 1632. As for the Hungarian lineage, the last male descendant
died late in the sixteenth century, though a female line can be traced
for an additional hundred years. As for indirect descendants, it has
been verified that Professor Constantin Balaceanu-Stolnici of Bucharest
is descended from Vlad Dracula's half-brother, Vlad the Monk. According
to researchers at the Institute of Genealogy of the Romanian Academy,
other claims are unsubstantiated.
More than 60 years after it was seized by socialists,
the Romanian government returned the country's most popular tourist
site, the fabled Dracula Castle, to its former owner. In
crowning irony, the mythical Dracula's castle has been retrieved
from true socialist vampires who had ruthlessly preyed on the people
of Transylvania, Romania, and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
While known and marketed as "Dracula's Castle," it
never belonged to Prince Vlad the Impaler, who is sometimes claimed
to have inspired Bram Stoker's Count Dracula character. But the
prince is thought to have visited the medieval fortress.

The Gothic fortress, perched on a rock, has appeared
in numerous Dracula movies.
Romania still has a vampire bureaucrat known as "the
culture minister" and he made the announcement about returning
the stolen property on May 26, 2006 in Bucharest, Romania.
Romania passed legislation earlier this year to return
property to its former owners and establish a "property fund"
to pay damages for assets that cannot be returned. The fund includes
stock in state-owned companies that are being privatized.
The vampire empire of the Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics imposed a self-proclaimed dictatorship of the proletariat.
It was implemented by V. I. Lenin (the first premier of the USSR)
after the 1917 revolution and exacerbated by Stalin, and it was a true
dictatorship of the proletariat, with the enslavement of everyone.
In later decades, the rationale for repression outlined there was
advanced again and again by dictatorial socialist governments as they
argued that the small vampire vanguard was necessary to rule the masses
for their own good, and even against their will. http://rexcurry.net/socialists.html
The castle, worth an estimated $25 million, was owned
by the late Queen Marie and bequeathed to her daughter Princess

Another former royal property, the Peles Castle,

In 1940 during World War II, Northern Bukovina and Bessarabia, Northern
Transylvania, and southern Dobrudja were occupied by the Union
of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), Hungary and Bulgaria respectively.
King Carol II abdicated in 1940 and the subsequent year Romania
entered the war joining with Germany's National Socialist German
Workers Party, Italy, Hungary and Bulgaria. Because Romania participated
in the invasion of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the country
recovered Bessarabia and northern Bukovina under the leadership
of general Ion Antonescu. During the Second World War, the Antonescu
regime, allied with Germany's National Socialists. In 1939, the National
Socialist German Workers' Party joined as allies with the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics to invade Poland in a secret pact to divide up Europe.
In August 1944 the Antonescu regime was toppled,
and Romania joined the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics against
German National Socialists.
With Soviet Socialist forces still stationed in the
country and exerting defacto control, socialists and their allied
parties claimed 80% of the vote in the 1946 Romanian elections, through
a combination of vote manipulation, elimination and forced mergers
of competing parties, establishing themselves as the dominant force;
Western democracies left Romania in the hands of the Union of Soviet
Socialist Republics. In 1947, King Michael I was forced by the socialists
to abdicate and leave the country.
Romania was a socialist state, under direct military
and economic control of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
until 1958. During this period, Romania's scarce resources left after
WWII were drained by the "SovRom" (Soviet Socialist / Romania) agreements:
mixed Soviet-Romanian companies established in the aftermath of
World War II to mask the looting of Romania by Soviet socialists,
in addition to excessive war reparations paid to the USSR. During
this dark period, up to two millions persons were arbitrarily imprisoned
for political, economical or for no reasons, there were hundreds thousands
of abuses, deaths and incidents of torture against a large range of
persons, from political opponents to ordinary citizens, bringing gloom
over Romania. The estimated least figure of human life losses due to
the socialist terror in Romania between 1948 and 1964 is 200,000.
Nicolae Ceauşescu imposed even more socialistic policies
that further impoverished Romanians and exhausted the Romanian
economy. He profoundly deepened Romania's socialist police state
(the Securitate) and imposed a cult of personality.
The then-existing socialist dictatorship ended 22
December 1989 (the Romanian Revolution of 1989).
It coincided with the similar economic implosion
of socialism in the USSR. In the summer of 1991 a new Union Treaty
was designed which would have turned the Socialist Republics
into a much looser federation. The treaty was interrupted by the
August Coup - an attempted coup d'état against Mikhail Gorbachev
by other socialists members of the government. After the coup
failed, Yeltsin came out as a hero while Gorbachev's power was greatly
reduced. The balance of power tipped significantly towards the republics.
Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania were able to secede and regained their
independence, while the other 12 republics continued discussing similar
goals. On December 8, 1991 Presidents of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus signed
Belavezha Accords which declared the socialist Union dissolved and established
the Commonwealth of Independent States in its place. On 25 December 1991,
Gorbachev resigned as the president of the Socialist Republics and turned
the powers of his office over to Boris Yeltsin. The following day, the
Supreme Soviet, the highest governmental body of the Soviet Union, dissolved
itself. This is generally recognized as the official, final dissolution
of the Socialist Republics.

involves the destruction of literally millions of humans, or potential

Stuthehistoryguy / Arminius started weak but finally
addressed the topic and conceded that Dr. Rex Curry's work is
correct. One of the first appearances of the word "vampyre" in print
was in a 1732 London Journal article entitled "Political Vampyres."
In that context, stu concedes that the vampyres were statists,
just like modern socialist vampires. Back then they were the Whig
party, the party of the nobility, and similar to modern socialist vampires
they favored taxation of the lower classes for the benefit of those
at the top of the political heap (though as stu stupidly demonstrates
they pretended to do the opposite, similar to how stu supports "taxes
on corporations" because stu is too stupid to realize that corporations
don't pay taxes, the lower classes pay corporate taxes through prices.
Stu stupidly supports social security and its theft from the lower classes
and the youngest and poorest etc, giving their money to wealthy retired
people who have more money than the payers ever will. The worst examples
of modern socialist vampires favoring expropriation and enslavement
of the lower classes for the benefit of those at the top of the political
heap was in the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part):
65 million slaughtered under the Union of Soviet Socialist Repubics; 35
million under the Peoples Republic of China; 21 million under the National
Socialist German Workers Party. They practiced human sacrifice on a scale
never before seen. http://rexcurry.net/wholecaust-museum.html
It resulted in shortages, poverty, misery and mass
slaughter. They were kings but Stu is too stupid to know.
In the USSR, they dumped the Czar and then King Vlad Lenin and King
Stalin etc set records in poverty and mass slaughter that made the
Czar seem angelic in comparison. In China, the earlier leaders
were dumped and then the socialist King Mao took over and set world
records that have never been broken in poverty, famine and mass slaugther.
In that sense, the word dictator is a synonym for king, though
the ones who call themselves "socialist" are the ones who hold the records
for poverty and mass slaughter.

The National Socialist German Workers Party (NSGWP) called
its symbol a Hakenkreuz (hooked cross), not a swastika. The NSGWP was
not the first group to turn a cross into a symbol of death and execution.
One of many different legends has it that the Roman emporer Constantine
claimed to have a vision before a battle in which he saw a cross as
a sword and the words "In this sign conquer" (In hoc signo vinces or IHS). Constantine instructed his men to fashion a
sword in the form of a cross and it was carried into victorious battle.
It is known as "Constantine's Sword." Thus the cross, a form
of execution and death before Constantine, was transformed into another
form of execution and death under Constantine.
Constantine banned the use of crucifixion as a means of exexution
in 337 A.D. Although a person would not be killed on a cross, he could
be killed or decapitated with a cross-shaped sword. He could also be impaled,
which duplicated characteristics of crucifixion: slow agonizing death,
and display of the victim to others as a form of terrorisim or warning.
There are persuasive arguments that impalement was worse than crucifixion.
It might have been under Constantine that the cross became
popularized as a symbol of Christianity. Before the cross, the common
symbols of Christianity included a fish, a lamb, and a shepherd.
The term crucifix means a cross with a person crucified upon it.
The term cross means that no crucified person is displayed.
The crucifix and the cross spread, even as modern jewelry.
It is interesting to note that after the guillotine was invented, jewelry
(including earrings) were made in the form of miniature guillotines,
in a fashion that is similar to modern jewelry in the form of small crosses
and crucifixes, also tools of execution similar to the guillotine).
If Jesus had been executed via guillotine or lethal injection,
would people wear miniature guillotines and hypodermic needles on necklaces?
When did the cross or crucifix come to be used as jewelry? It might
be possible to discover by examining old art for representations of people
Thanks to capitalism, metal knives (and forks) are abundant in
capitalist countries where they are commonly used for dining. Machines
spit out knives by the millions. That is not the case in anti-capitalist
countries where people continue to eat with their hands or with wooden
utensils to shovel food into their mouths. The lack of affordable metal
utensils was the case in history, too (some places today have not progressed
from historic conditions).
Capitalism feeds the world, libertarians say. And it feeds the world
with classy flatware.
As metallic knives became more affordable, people began to use
them for everyday dining. Even so, a lucky trendsetter might own a single
knife to use for eating. Cutlery would not be provided to diners in town
or while traveling. Diners had to bring their own. And there were times,
and places, where the knives continued to be rare and desired. It was not
something to be left upon a table in a lodging.
One place to keep a smaller knife used for dining was on a chain
hung around the neck. Some of those knives resembled crosses,
Such knives were eventually accompanied by forks and spoons, on
the same chain.
Today, there continue to be cross-knives on necklaces. Here are
images of some -

Crusades were not just about killing muslims. Crusades
were about killing anyone who was not a christian (that included the
slaughter of Hebrews).
Animal sacrifice is the ritual killing of an animal as part of a religion.
It is practised by many religions as a means of appeasing a god or gods
or changing the course of nature. Animal sacrifice has turned up in almost
all cultures, from the Hebrews to the Greeks and Romans and from the Aztecs
to the Yoruba.
Remnants of ancient rituals of animal sacrifice are apparent in many
cultures, for example the Spanish bullfights, or kapparos in Judaism, or
ritual prescriptions for slaughtering procedures like shechita or ḏabīḥah.
Slaughtering lambs is a common practise in Islam (the meat being typically
consumed, not burned).
Many Jewish sources discuss the deeper meaning behind korbanot. For
example, Sefer Hachinuch explains that an individual bringing an animal
sacrifice for a sin understands that he personally should have been sacrificed
as punishment for the rebellion against God. God accepts the sacrifice
in his or her place.
A "whole offering" (Hebrew: olah), or "burnt offering", is a type
of Biblical sacrifice, specifically an animal sacrifice in which the entire
sacrifice is completely burnt, consumed totally by fire. This form of sacrifice,
in which no meat was left over for anyone, was seen as the greatest form
of sacrifice. Modern Biblical scholars regard the Moloch offering, which
involved human immolation, as being related to the whole offering.
The animals were brought to the north side of the altar, and killed
by either the offerer, or a kohen (priest). The animal's blood was carefully
collected by kohens and sprinkled around the altar. Unless the animal
was a bird, its corpse was flayed, the skin given to the priest (who was
permitted to keep it). In later times more powerful priests forcibly took
possession of the skins from the lesser priests, and it was decreed that
the skins should be sold.
Korban (Hebrew: "sacrifice" קרבן) (plural: Korbanot קרבנות), is the
term for a variety of sacrificial offerings described and commanded in
the Torah. Such sacrifices were offered in a variety of settings by the
ancients, and later by the Jewish priesthood, the Kohanim, at the Temple
in Jerusalem. A Korban was usually an animal sacrifice, such as a sheep
or a bull that underwent shechita (ritual slaughter), and was often cooked
and eaten by the offerer, with parts given to the Kohanim and parts burned
on the Temple mizbe'ah (altar). Korbanot could also consist of doves, grain,
wine, or incense.
The Torah narrates that God commanded that people offer korbanot
on various altars, and describes the offering of sacrifices in the Tabernacle
and in the Temple in Jerusalem until the First Temple was destroyed and
resumed with the Second Temple until it was destroyed in 70 CE.
Korbanot were practiced from earliest times, particularly for over
one thousand years in the Tabernacle and during the eras of the Temple
of Solomon and the Second Temple in Jerusalem when the Israelites lived
in the Land of Israel until the destruction of Judea, Jerusalem, and the
Temple by the Roman Empire approximately two thousand years ago in the year
The korbanot are mentioned in all five books of the Torah outlining
their origins and history, and then in the later books of the Tanakh (Hebrew
Bible). Every regular weekday, Shabbat, and each Jewish holiday had its
own unique korbanot.
Role of the kohen (priest): The Kohanim ("priests") performed the
korbanot rituals first in the ancient Tabernacle and then in the Temple
of Solomon (the first Temple in Jerusalem) and later in the Second Temple
in Jerusalem. The Hebrew Bible describes them as patrilineal descendants
of Aaron who meet certain marriage and ritual purity requirements.
The Kohen Gadol in particular played a crucial role in this regard
on Yom Kippur, a day when multiple korbanot were offered.
The Book of Leviticus contains the details of each korban. In classical
rabbinic literature it is sometimes known as Torat kohanim, the "Law [book
of the] Priests". It delineates the roles both of the kohen ("priest")
and the Kohen Gadol ("High Priest").
About one hundred of the permanent 613 mitzvot (commandments) based
on the Torah (Pentateuch) itself, concern the korbanot, according to Maimonides,
(excluding those mitzvot that concern the actual Temple and the kohanim
themselves of which there are about another fifty):

Women and Korbanot
Women were required to perform a number of korbanot, including:
* Childbirth The offerings following childbirth
described in Leviticus 12.
* Thanksgiving The todah (Thanksgiving) offering
and its accompanying mincha following recovery from illness or danger
* Passover The pesach (Paschal) sacrifice on Passover.
Women could offer the sacrifice and hold a seder themselves if they wished,
even if married.
* Chatot and Ashamot Chatot (sin) and ashamot
(guilt) offerings in atonement for transgressions and unintentional errors.
* Nazir Offerings relevant to fulfillment of,
or transgression of, the Nazirite vow.
In the Hebrew Bible, a nazirite or nazarite, (in Hebrew:
נזיר, nazir), refers to a Jew who took the ascetic vow described in Numbers
6:1-21. The term "nazirite" comes from the Hebrew word nazir meaning "consecrated"
