if you don't mind..please post any connections/history regarding the phoenicians and how this all relates
There was never a country or empire called “Phoenicia.” The historical name of this culture was coined by the Greeks and was not their own. The name Phoenicia derives from the Greek word phoenix, meaning in this case a dark red or purple-brown color. The Phoenicians were renowned for their cloth dyes, especially an expensive purple one popular with royalty. Because Greek language and writings were preserved in abundance, versus Phoenician texts which are very scant, the name stuck.
The Phoenicians appeared on the historical scene around 1200 BC, a time when most of the civilized world was being overrun by barbarians. In the political and military void of a 400-year ancient dark age, this small group of traders were able to prosper and gradually expand their influence. Instead of acquiring a physical empire of contiguous lands, they gradually built, instead, a large trading and colonial network from their home base of a few independent cities along the coast of what is now Lebanon.They were the remnants of the Canaanites, a Semitic people who occupied city-states in this region prior to 1200 BC. The most important of their early cities were Tyre, Sidon, Berytus (modern Beirut), and Byblos. These coastal cities were hemmed in on the land side by the Lebanon Mountains. The only obvious opportunity for expansion and economic gain was by sea.
In the fifth century B.C. Himilco, also a Carthaginian, traveled from this seat of the Phoenician empire through the Straits of Gibraltar around the western coasts of Spain and France and continued until he reached the islands around the southern coast of England and the area known to the Phoenicians as "Tin-Land." The tin trade at this time was controlled by the people living in the area that is now France. Using Himilco's sea route from Carthage to England through the Straits of Gibraltar, the Phoenicians were able to trade for tin directly.

Hanno, a native of Carthage, a main Phoenician trading port, explored the western coast of Africa around 500 B.C. His coastal route took him from the Straits of Gibraltar (the Pillars of Hercules) around the western coast of Africa to modern Sierra Leone, and, when supplies ran low, returned to Carthage the way he came. Hanno wrote an account of his travels that survives in its Greek translation. In the account, Hanno mentions that the Phoenician travelers established colonies along the African coast.

The principality of Seborga is the last surviving uninterrupted state of the original Roman Republic.
To this day it is ruled by a Roman Prince and has never been part of any other nation. Italy has never been able to annex it though it still tries. It has been protected over the years by the Piedmont Kings of Sardinia and the Holy Sea.
It was contractually granted through treaty not just it's perpetual independence but the right to reject any G-d or religious Icon by Charlemagne.
Seborga’s currency has the highest exchange rate in the world.
The Prince Abbot who ran the Abbey on top of Seborga’s hill which is the holiest spot in Rome since the earliest days of the Republic is reputed to be the mythical Mt. Olympus.
Amongst the things that they excavated in Jerusalem was the remains of Christ which they carried back to the Abbey on top of Seborga’s hill. The Roman Imperial Scepter also is there.
The Knights Templar were bequeathed with extraordinary powers by the Pontificus Maximus to act as a law unto themselves in any land or nation that they travelled through. They were answerable only to the Pope.
The Knights Templar established the first International Banking System. Pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land could deposit money and valuables at any Templar location throughout Europe and be issued a letter that could be redeemed for a like amount of Gold or Silver in Jerusalem by the Knights Templar there minus a small commission.
They became the first International Corporation. When the King of France reneged on paying them back a large loan he convinced the Pope to pronounce them heretics for practicing mystical religious rites from scrolls they excavated from the Temple in Jerusalem where they were encamped for the better part of 3 centuries.
Some Knight Templar went on to found the Scottish Rite Free Masonry organization based on some of those rituals.
Rome simply went underground and owns and controls all most every nation on earth through treaties that date back centuries and sometimes millennium.
They have been practicing divide and conquer warfare to use national pride, racial differences, political and religious differences to establish common laws, common commerce and banking and currency practices to bind the nations together and to force exterminations and migrations on a slow path to creating a one world government.
They are almost but not quite finished in that process.
Don’t believe me, read all the Treaties between sovereign nations, look at the architecture in governmental buildings of power, the origins and roots of the laws, and the use of Latin in them, and in science, and medicine and on our currency and then think again.
As we all know, the history books certainly say so, that at the height of his power, Caesar was assassinated by Brutus and company. The 24 fasces and axe bearing lictors, who he apparently dismissed permanently, could have prevented his assassination - at least as it was carried out by 23 dagger thrusting men on March 15, the Ides of March. On top of it all, he was supposedly warned to "beware the Ides of March!" I ask of Caesar, were you that sick of it all?
Another big question is, why would Caesar throw away all that he had accomplished by opening himself up to the possibility of an assassination? The answer is he didn’t!
According to a publication entitled, All Roads Lead to Rome, it is believed in certain circles that Caesar survived his murder plot, which took place on March 15th and fled to safety, regaining consciousness on March 22nd. His inner circle then took him to the remote town of Castrum Sepulcri, where he lived for another thirteen years in secrecy.
From Castrum Sepulcri, he ruled from behind the scenes, directing the new triumvirate of Anthony, Lepidus and Octavian. Here Caesar would hatch his master plan to divide and conquer numerous nations and create an even more impressive Roman Empire, what we would now call, a “One World Government.”
Situated on the border of Gaul, in present-day France, Castrum Sepulcri was later named "Sepulcri Bugrum", then to "Serporca" and ultimately to the contemporary name of Seborga. There is no reason why this small principality in Italy, does not still protect the relics of supposedly the best Roman General and Ruler that at least the Ancient Roman world has ever known!
We all know of the “Holy Crusades” but it was this small principality’s Abbott who bestowed the title of “Knights Templar” to eight men who came to represent and carry out the objectives of the Holy Roman Empire in the Near East. If you look at the facades of Seborga buildings, they often feature paintings of knights. Personally, Seborga is on my list to head out to on my next trip to Italy.
For their service they were also given the knowledge that Caesar had survived his assassination and that the Roman Catholic Church was created to further carry out those objectives of world domination through the institution of strict religious beliefs and world-wide religious conversion. It’s plausible but many of us need spirituality to turn to and find it comforting – even if it is a unifying spirituality.
In recent years there have been many books on the Templars. There are also enough cable television documentaries that say that the Templars then became the Masons, or today's Freemasons. The point that the publication I'm referencing, All Roads Lead to Rome, makes is that Caesar was the very first Freemason. It is the Freemasons who formed secret societies, even going back to Revolutionary times and the Founding Fathers of our nation.
Apparently, it is also for this regaining of Caesar's consciousness on the March 22nd that the Skull and Bones 322 society was named. This society has been spoken about ad nauseum on documentaries shown on cable television. Per "conspiracy theorists," they supposedly carry out Caesar's agenda for a One World government to this very day, along with other elitists around the world. There seems to be a major movement to get these "secrets" out into the mainstream. So this was Caesar's legacy for a New World?

Unfortunately, all talks about what happened to Thomas Henley AKA '' ProtoplasmicTraveler '' is forbbiden by ATS Administration and ATS owners. sorry..! All we can do for now is to continue to post in his All Roads Lead to Rome thread about his research findings.
All you can find about TPTB / ROME can be post here.
Welcome aboard my friend..!
Look at the unusual evolution of the Anonymous logo. It went from the Anonymous mask to a United Nation like design with the Roman laurel wreath with on but side 13 leafs and a 36 section earth logo and what about the new image name...'' We are Legion '' it seems that all it missing is '' Hail Caesar..! ''
Kind of weird for organization which supposed to be against TPTB don't you think....and we knows the audacious mind of Rome for secretly exposing its mark on their conquered countries, organizations and Legions...
One thing we mostly agree in the conspiracy community it's the probability that TPTB could take control of world population by using martial law but to force order it needs first... '' chaos..! ''. Many chaotic events could be use to declare martial law like, terrorist attacks, natural disasters, epidemics but a civil war is IMO, the best excuse.
