James Deering built Villa Vizcaya between 1914 and 1922 with visionary mastermind of the project, designer Paul Chalfin, his collaborator companion. The architect was F. Burrall Hoffman Jr.. The estate's landscape master plan and formal gardens were designed by Colombian landscape designer Diego Suarez. Paul Chalfin had attended Harvard, trained as a painter at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and was an associate of renowned decorator Elsie de Wolfe. She introduced Chalfin to Deering for the interiors of his Chicago home in 1910. In 1910, Chalfin and Deering traveled through Europe together for the first trip of many over the years, in part to collect ideas and begin acquiring art, antiquities, and furnishings for the new Florida estate. The culmination of their shared effort and lasting memorial to their creative relationship is Villa Vizcaya, the Miami estate created between 1914 and 1923.
The numerous sculptures in the gardens and villa are of ancient Greek, Greco-Roman, and Italian Renaissance origins and styles.
For example, one element is altar-like in white marble, featuring the carved heads of goats, cattle, and lions, and flanked by coral stone pillars with carving of the 'Oak Tree of Gernika', symbolizing the freedom of the Basque Vizcaya in Spain.

Listening to Rush and thinking I should stop. He just played a Pelosi soundbite and I am, again, really pissed.
Every word out of that woman's mouth is an absolute lie. Trump consistently tells the truth.
What is the psychological term for "white is black and black is white"?

YET ANOTHER BANKSTER DEATH, WITH TWO MAJOR INTERPRETATIONS
Goes into "humans as currency".
from the link...
I pointed out that in certain criminal underground circles, the word "gold" does not refer to bullion, but rather to drugs. Similar codes could be used to indicate humans. Thus, the "gold-backed" bearer bonds of the bearer bonds scandals might indicate that those bonds were collateralized by the drug trade, not actual bullion. You get the picture.
Gold=Humans per Q?
Q: "Gold shall destroy FED." (not gold "standard")
"Humans shall destroy the FED" ?
The Genomes OnLine Database (GOLD) is a web-based resource for comprehensive information regarding genome and metagenome sequencing projects, and their associated metadata, around the world. Since 2011, the GOLD database has been run by the DOE Joint Genome Institute.
GOLD ("General Ontology for Linguistic Description") is an ontology for descriptive linguistics. It gives a formalized account of the most basic categories and relations used in the scientific description of human language.
James Clapper just reported on CNN that their headline claiming President TRUMP'S campaign was NOT spied on is premature.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — An Alabama man has been arrested for the third time on multiple charges of sex crimes, according to Attorney General Steve Marshall.
Marshall said 39-year-old Jason Park, of Pinckard, was initially arrested November 25. As more evidence was uncovered, Park was arrested November 27 and again on December 2.
Each time Park posted bond, totaling $316,000 for all three arrests.

Joe Biden said yesterday that he nor his son will appear in a senate trial. Can the senate compel them to appear?
"That woman yesterday looks her nose down at you. She thinks that you are less than her and I've had it...Who the hell are you lady to look down at half the country?!"
