14.16 Santa Claus

Santa Claus is a legendary character which is generally depicted as a white-bearded man wearing a red coat with a white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, a matching Phrygian Cap (see below), a black leather belt and black boots. He allegedly lives at the North Pole (which does not exist) along with a large number of magical elves and the 9 flying reindeer which pull his sleigh. According to legend, Santa makes a list of children who have been "naughty" or "nice". Come Christmas Eve, December 24th, Santa Clause gives out said gifts to the “nice” children and coal to the “naughty” children. These gifts are made by Santa’s elves in his workshop. In reality, Santa Claus is an old, white, bearded man known whose likeness is that of a Greek philosopher. He is always dressed in red and white, the colors of the Roman Empire (e.g., war flag of the Roman Empire). Santa wears a Greco-Roman Phrygian Cap which is representative of Greenland, the capstone of the Earth. He also wears black boots which represent the fascist boot of the Roman Empire which has been placed on the collective throat of the underworld. Santa lives at the North Pole (i.e., Mt. Olympus or Mt. Zion) which is found in Greenland, home of the Roman Empire. The name Santa Claus (S+N/X+T+C/K+L+S) acronymically and/or consonantly equates to “Sent to Kill System” because Special Forces would travel from Greenland to the underworld on December 24th in order to execute assassinations, coup d’états, terror attacks and wars (e.g., Roman Vikings). Numerically speaking, the number “24” equates to the letter “X” in the Roman-English alphabet, hence Christmas’ nickname of “X-mas”. The letter “X” is representative of death as evidenced by the Jolly Rodger on the pirate flag. Santa gives a “gift” (i.e., a word which translates to “poison” in the German language) to the good children and “coal” (C/K+L) to the bad children, a term which consonantly equates to “Cull” or “Kill”. Santa Clause rides in his “sleigh” because he has been sent to the underworld to “slay” all those who have not adhered to the policies set forth by the Roman Empire. His sleigh is pulled by 9 flying reindeer because numerologically speaking, the number “9” represents the letter “I” in the Roman-English alphabet, an acronym for “Eye” (i.e., spying) which is coincidentally found in most governmental agencies related to espionage (e.g., CIA, FBI, FIS, ISIS, MI5, etc.). Santa accomplishes his tasks with the aid of the Jewish Race who are considered his “elves” because they are much smaller in stature than the Greco-Romans, otherwise known as the Giants of Greenland. Santa Clauses’ wicked plans are executed in the underworld via Santa’s Workshop, otherwise known as Switzerland, home to the CIA.


Phrygian Cap

Phrygian Cap is a Greco-Roman symbol which is representative of Greenland, the capstone of the Earth. Although they vary in color, Phrygian Caps are generally red, the official color of the Roman Empire. Phrygian Caps are also referred to as Liberty Caps and are identified with the “Pursuit of Liberty”. Connotations of Liberty surrounding the cap evidently stem from the fact that the Roman Empire escaped to Greenland around Anno Domini (i.e., 000 BC/AD) where it has enjoyed its Liberty ever since. In order to dispel the notion that the Phrygian Cap is somehow associated with Anno Domini, modern historical accounts state that a coin issued by Marcus Junius Brutus the Younger (44–42 BC) depicts a Phrygian Cap posed between two daggers. The term “Phrygian” (F/P+R+G+N/X) acronymically and/or consonantly equates “Fire Gen”, a likely reference to Eternal Flame of Rome which was lit in Greenland. The red color of the cap along with the top being pulled forward may be indicative of the Eternal Flame blowing in the wind. Aside from being depicted in various forms of heraldry and vexillology (see below), the Phrygian Cap is depicted on Trajan's Column and the Arch of Septimius Severus in Rome, Italy (i.e., Babylon, the former capital of the Roman Empire). The Phrygian Cap is also worn by Columbia”, the female personification of the United States of America, “Marianne”, the female personification of France, and Santa Clause.
