At Least 25 American Presidents
Descend From Royalty?

We read in Psalm 89:4, 20-37 that, "Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations." Then verses 20-37 state: "I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted. I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation. Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me. 37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah."

The Davidic Covenant promises that David would have a descendent perpetually on the throne of Israel. There are no less than five other mentions of this promise to David. It was first given to David in 2 Samuel 7:16. "Thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. First Kings 8:25 confirms with, "There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel" Also, 1 Chronicles 17:12 says, "He shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for ever." Again in 2 Chronicles 13:5 we find, "Ought ye not to know that the LORD God of Israel gave the kingdom over Israel to David for ever, even to him and to his sons by a covenant of salt?" Finally Jeremiah says, "For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel" (33:17). This term "House of Israel" always refers to the northern ten tribed kingdom, to whom Jesus was sent and to whom he sent his disciples.

There is overwhelming evidence that the monarchs of the British Isles and northwest Europe are all descended from the marriage of the Zarah-Judah-Milesian king of Ireland to his bride the Pharez-Judah daughter of king Zedekiah, Tea Tephi. But does that same promise to David hold true for the United States even though it is not ruled by a monarch? If this was the case, then our US presidents should be found to be tied to the royalty of the Old World.

George Washington was of royal blood. John F. Kennedy was tied to the Kings of Ireland, and even Ronald Reagan had royal ties back to Ireland.

There is a Cottage in Cullybackey, Co. Antrim, Ulster which belonged to Chester Arthur's family. He was the 21st President of the USA.
Among the names of former US presidents who are listed on the "Kane Ancestral Map" as being of Milesian descent, the name Ford also appears. If the research is accurate, it indicates former President Ford is also of Zarah/Judahite lineage. The name "Clinton" appears on a list of 750 ancient Gaelic surnames which are descendants of the Milesian kings of Spain invaded and settled Ireland hundreds of years before the birth of Christ. The list also contains the names of many U.S. presidents. The Milesian kings were Zarah Judahites who originated in Egypt and left prior to the Exodus in ships owned by the Tuatha de Danaan (Tribe of Dan). This would indicate the blood of Judah does indeed flow through the veins of President Clinton! King is the birth name of President Ford. King is a typical Irish name, particularily common in the west of Ireland around Connemara, Co. Galway which is primarily a Gaelic speaking region. The name King does appear on The Kane Ancestral Map of Ireland. How interesting that both of President Ford's names are of the same origin.

In a recent issue of "Prophecy in the News" magazine, author J. R. Church informs us of a most striking genealogy. He mentions Burke's Peerage - researchers of royal bloodlines since 1826, who predicted the outcome of our 2000 election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. They picked Bush. Burke's Peerage hasn't guessed wrong for almost two centuries! J.R. Church wrote: "In an Associated Press article published in The Daily Oklahoman, October 28, 1996, Harold Brooks-Baker, director of Burke's Peerage, a London-based publishing house that traces the lineage of royal and noble families, said that Bill Clinton and Bob Dole have more in common than wanting to be president. They are distant cousins! However, Clinton has bluer blood, giving him an election edge." "Bill Clinton was born William Jefferson Blythe, but took his stepfather's name as a teenager. Clinton's ancestry can be traced back, on his mother's side, to King Henry III who ruled England from 1227 to 1272. He is descended from King Robert I of France. "Furthermore, he is related to every Scottish monarch to the current British royal family. Clinton's royal roots include several medieval monarchs and Simon de Montford, a statesman and soldier under King Henry III. Through de Montford, Clinton is related to every ancient aristocratic family in Britain today." J. R. Church continues the incredible story: "Over the past six years, efforts to uncover Clinton's personal history have been nigh unto impossible to confirm. The President had all records of his family history, school records, medical history, etc. sealed. "In 1992, we called Burke's Peerage and asked if they had done any research into Clinton's lineage. We were told that they had not done a genealogical search on his ancestry. It seemed strange to us at the time that they denied knowing anything about Clinton. Shortly afterward, we came across an AP story that linked Clinton to a Gypsy king--citing Burke's Peerage as a source. We again called Burke's Peerage and repeated our request. Again, they told us that no work had been done. That's when we read the article to the person on the phone, naming Harold Brooks-Baker as a source. She then admitted that they had done some work on the genealogy. She said that we should talk with Harold Brooks-Baker, himself. She requested that we fax a letter and request a reply. "We did as she asked. Two days later, having received no reply, we called again. This time, we were able to get Mr. Harold Brooks-Baker on the phone. He asked why we wanted the information, and said he would have to clear our request with Washington. He said, 'It's a very touchy subject.' He talked like there might be something to hide." Indeed! What might that closely-guarded secret be? J. R. Church continues his riveting story: "Bill Clinton's family goes back to William Henry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison, making him related to Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. His kinship to Ford makes him 'near kin' to Richard Nixon and George Bush. Small world, isn't it?

"There is no official documentation for what I am about to relate. I talked with a man in the summer of 1996 who claimed to be a descendant of the Rothschild banking family. He informed me that Bill Clinton used to attend their family functions as a boy. This man grew up in the same town with Clinton. They attended the same schools. He would see Bill at family get-togethers wearing a Jewish skullcap. According to him, Bill Clinton is a descendant of the Rothschild family. "He said the rabbis would kiss his hand and refer to him as the Segulah Yeled Eklatosh--the 'royal-boy-chosen.' He said that according to private family records, the original Meyer Amschel (Bauer) Rothschild claimed to have had a heavenly visitor in 1773, who informed him that Jesus was not the Messiah. He told Meyer Amschel that the family from which he descended would produce the Messiah in the last half of the twentieth century. A few weeks later I read in 'The Jewish Festivals' by Hayyim Schauss (published in 1938) that the Roman Emperor Nero had faked his death, escaped and married a Jewish woman. The famous thirteenth century Rabbi Meir (also spelled Meyer) of Rothenberg, Germany, claimed direct descent from Nero. I called my Rothschild family friend and asked if there was a family connection. Two days later he called me back, and said 'Yes! The Rothschilds are descended from Nero!'..." ("Roots of the Presidents," by J. R. Church, Prophecy in the News, July 1998, pages 18-19).

This article goes on to describe Nero's character and ends by saying Nero's Aramaic name (Nron Ksr) equals 666. They also show William Jefferson Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton as both adding up to 666 but the numbers are off as published. Prophecy Flash! Jan-Feb 1999 Triumph Prophetic Ministries

Political Blue Blood - Bush and Gore's Bloodline Battle

Do presidential candidates Al Gore and George W. Bush have royal connections? Buckingham Palace politely declined to comment.

When it comes to picking the winner in the American presidential race, Britain's leading chroniclers of royal ancestors say they've never been wrong - not once in almost 200 years. Based on facts gleaned from the old scrolls and dusty archives of Burke's Peerage - researchers of royal bloodlines since 1826 - the Brits wager it will be Texas Gov. George W. Bush. "The presidential candidate with the most royal genes and chromosomes has, up to now, always won the White House," say the researchers at Burke's Peerage. They say Bush's blue blood runs thicker than Vice President Al Gore's. In fact it trumps the royal ties of every other President to date, including his father's. It seems George W. has inherited his mother's deep blue blood-line....

Burke's publishing director, Harold Brooks-Baker says Bush's royal connections are startling. "[Bush] is closely related to every European Monarch both on and off the throne," says Brooks-Baker. Some of the governor's royal kin include Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen Mother, Duchess Sarah "Fergy" Ferguson and even the late Princess Diana. His most prominent ancestor may be England's King Charles II, who shared the governor's vision of a strong military. Going back nearly 1000 years, Brooks-Baker points out both the Bush and Pierce families [Barbara Bush's maiden name is Pierce] were high society. "Not one member of his family was working class, middle class, or even middle, middle class," he notes....

Gore's family members weren't exactly peasants. The vice president's family tree includes Charlemagne and three Holy Roman emperors. And a good fight wouldn't frighten the vice president's most famous ancestor, England's Edward I - best known today as the king who defeated, then executed Braveheart. Edward was also said to be very popular with the ladies. His descendent, Al Gore certainly won the hearts of many American ladies with "that kiss" he publicly planted on wife Tipper. Although Gore is running a bit behind Bush in the European royal count, his blood-line runs close to some American home-grown nobility, including Thomas Jefferson, Daniel Boone, and "Buffalo Bill" Cody....

Buckingham Palace politely declined to comment on the recorded royal connections of either candidate. "This sort of thing happens every time there's an American Presidential Election," scoffed one palace official. But if the Burke's Peerage prediction has its doubters, the company doesn't hesitate to defend its crowning legacy. "You can't just write off 200 years of accurate predictions," says Brooks-Baker pointing out Mike Dukakis learned about the "royal factor" the hard way. The 1988 Democratic nominee and son of Greek immigrants had no connections to any European thrones, and he lost in a landslide.

October Surprise?

Although Bush maintains a clear royal advantage, Burke's Peerage claims to know why the race is so close. "Never in the history of the United States have two presidential candidates been as well endowed with royal alliances." However the royal researchers are hedging their bets saying their dig through the documents continues. Brooks-Baker says Gore still has a chance to prove he's "royal enough" for the top job. "Like Jimmy Carter, it is possible that he is the product of several royal love children of the past," Brooks-Baker says. "Those connections are harder to trace." Thus Burke's Peerage leaves open the possibility for an October surprise - and either a Bush, or a Gore, coronation Nov. 7.

If They Were Alive Today

Bush's most famous relative, England's King Charles II built a strong military, but at record spending levels. His health care plan proved to be a disaster during his reign - as 70,000 perished from the plague in London alone. If Charles were alive today, he might have been useful to Bush with his strong Catholic ties, and a proven victory in New York. (Charles walloped what was then the Dutch colony "New Amsterdam.") Gore's most famous relative fought back considerable uprisings from Scotland's William Wallace and the Welsh. But England's King Edward also faced public scrutiny for his (military) campaign fundraising. Though generally regarded as a successful lawmaker and administrator, record tax increases he imposed to fight Scotland and Wales made the king highly unpopular with his key constituents.
