Is this a surprise? More than a year after David Icke and other freedom-loving researchers exposed these bloodlines, Reuter's New Service determines the information newsworthy. Perhaps a bit late for the readers of news and articles on the David Icke site, but for the sheeple who think their votes count it may be worthwhile.
Bush Beats Gore in Presidential 'Blue Blood' Stakes
Updated 11:12 AM ET October 17, 2000
LONDON (Reuters) - If royal genes have anything to do with electoral success, then Republican U.S. presidential candidate George W. Bush will be the next man in the White House, Britain's blue blood bible said Tuesday. Burke's Peerage, a revered guide to the breeding of the aristocracy, said both Bush and his rival Al Gore are of royal descent, but investigations deep into their heritage show Bush has far more noble and royal connections.
Bush is closely related to every European monarch on and off the throne -- including the King of Albania -- and has kinship with every member of Britain's royal family, the House of Windsor.
He is a 13th cousin of Britain's Queen Mother, and of her daughter Queen Elizabeth and is a 13th cousin once removed of the heir to the throne, Prince Charles.
Bush's family tree can be documented as far back as the early 15th century.
He has a direct descent from Henry III and from Henry VIII's sister Mary Tudor, who was also the wife of Louis XI of France. He is also descended from Charles II of England.
"It is now clear that Mr. Gore and Mr. Bush have an unusually large number of royal and noble descents," said Harold Brooks-Baker, publishing director of Burke's Peerage.
"In point of fact, never in the history of the United States have two presidential candidates been as well endowed with royal alliances."
Brooks-Baker said there had always been a significant "royalty factor" in those who aspired to the White House, with Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, among others, all boasting blue blood links.
Democrat candidate Gore, who is currently lagging Bush by one point in opinion polls ahead of U.S. elections in November, has a less illustrious gene pool.
Being a descendant of Edward I, he is also a cousin of former U.S. president Richard Nixon, who resigned from the White House in 1974 for his part in the Watergate scandal.
But Gore does have direct links to the holy Roman Empire.
He is a descendant of Roman Emperors Louis II, Charles II and Louis I and is therefore also a direct descendant of Charlemagne -- the eight-century Emperor.
The problem is, Gore's Charlemagne links also make him a cousin of George W. Bush.
From the Introduction:
Almost everyone in the world thinks that "THE STATE OF TEXAS" and the "state of Texas" are the same entity. Up until a few years ago attorneys were probably the only people in the known universe who knew these two terms were hugely different. Then their known universe began to shrink when a few of us cynics across America decided to start reading the law for ourselves. It didn't take long for us to discover that many times the law does not say what someone from the government says it says!...If someone from the government said it, it's probably a lie!
