Guys, I'm amazed how lazy the Crowd is to move a finger (or a brain cell) to get new information to see the past and the future, which in fact started with Wil The Con invading England. Read the book in BPL: "Solomon's Power Brokers" to see. William The Conqueror was the son of a Prince in France, called "Robert The Magnificent." This prince was obviously from an ancient Middle Eastern (Templar) bloodline, which was certainly also member of an ancient secret order and the carrier of an ancient plan and a special belief about the world. OK, so, the mother of Wil The Con was a Norman peasant girl, the beautiful Arlette, whom Robert the Magnificent once saw washing clothes in a brook, took her into his palace and blessed her with a child - Wil. Robert was married and had 3 other children. So Wil was a "bastard," and later on he called himself challenging people so; "I am the Bastard." OK, when his children grew up and Robert fell gravely ill, he bestowed all he had on Wil the Bastard, because, he said, Wil was the only brave and valid man, his other children were "dummies." The "dummies" once ambushed Wil and wanted to kill him, but he was big, strong and brave and fought his way out of the ambush. Later on he became a Norman regional religious governor of the Pope and when he attacked England, he carried the flag of the Pope of Rome. Now comes why he attacked England. And here Rick Steves. the "keep on traveling" guy just said (not quite true, this) that once Wil the Con had the idea that he was the legitimate heir to the English throne instead of Harold, and so he attacked England. No, no, no. He was not at all a legitimate heir, and the purpose of his attack had quite a different motive - it was part of a thousand-year old plan. If you want to know what his motive was, read the book of Christopher Knight: "Solomon's Power Brokers" available in Burnaby Public Library. The Pope gobbled the idea avidly that the Catholic rule should be extended to England too, and so the whole of Catholic Europe aided Wil in amassing 10,000 horsemen, putting them on giant wooden rafts and landing on the South shore of England in 1066 A.D. In the history book I read it was said that 2 weeks before Wil landed there, from the East the Vikings attacked England by the sea. And here the historian lies that the Vikings put down their arms and crossed a river unarmed to meet the English, to negotiate the surrender of England to them. Hahaha. And, of course, the armored English beat the "unarmed" Vikings and killed their Chief, the Great Hardrada. But in the meantime Wil landed on the South Coast unhindered, and then King Harold (after beating the Vikings) hurried Southward to fend off the new assailants. Now, it is obvious that the Vikings and the half Norman Wil's armies cooperated - the Vikings drew away to the East the English army to allow Wil to land unhindered on the South. OK, so Wil as the new King introduced terror in England - he chopped off the hands or burned out the eyes of those who resisted. He also introduced Roman Law, which even as of today rules and is the best possible. The historian who wrote the book I read, said about Wil The Con: "There was greatness in everything he did." To see clear in this matter of why Wil The Con invaded England, YOU MUST READ Christopher Knight's book: "Solomon's Power Brokers." His motive was a thousand-year old plan, he was a double dealer, so, read that book, because that plan is alive today, in fact, we live in it. It's a true book, except the final statement of what they want.
