Map Sells for Record $1M at Auction
Vespucci was a moneychanger from the Florentine banking House of
Medici. Banking was considered the lowest profession because of
the unseemly practice of money lending at interest or usury.
derived from the Italian word for WASP—a nasty stinging
in Seville, Spain in 1491 and worked as a clerk for the banking
firm of Juanoto Beraldi, branch office of the Medici banking House
He is never
heard of again in any of the historical records until 1503 when
he wrote a letter to his boss in Florence and called the newly
discovered lands a MUNDUS NOVUS or NEW WORLD.
In this Mundus
Novus letter, Vespucci claimed to have made 4 voyages to this
New World. It is not very hard to PROVE that the so-called voyages
were a total fantasy and mere fiction.

map is a damning indictment of Portugal and the Vatican because
the first question that arises is: At that time (1507), where
did they get the geographical information that the western continent
was a separate continent from Asia?
not from Columbus because he was so inept as a sailor that he
sank his own ship the Santa Maria on his first voyage!!
brothers, Martin and Vincent, were expert sailors when following
someone else's map but Martin was killed by Columbus after they
returned to Spain in March, 1493.
Magellan did not start his around the world voyage until 1519
—12 years after the publication of the Waldseemuller
expert mariner was John Cabot!!
Caboto (John Cabot) was an expert mariner who was DETERMINED to get
to China. On his 3rd voyage in 1497 he mapped the coast from Canada
to Florida. On that voyage he left Bristol around May 20, 1497, and
returned in August, 1497. Only 3 months to complete a voyage of at least
10,000 miles. That is expert sailing . . . even by today's standards....Here
is a report from the Milanese ambassador to England:
amid the numerous occupations of your Excellency, it may not weary
you to hear how his Majesty here has gained a part of Asia, without
a stroke of the sword. There is in
this Kingdom a man of the people, Messer Zoane Caboto by name, of
kindly wit and a most expert mariner. Having observed that
the sovereigns first of Portugal and then of Spain had occupied unknown
islands, he decided to make a similar acquisition for his Majesty.
After obtaining patents that the effective ownership of what he might
find should be his, though reserving the rights of the Crown, he committed
himself to fortune in a little ship, with eighteen persons. He started
from Bristol, a port on the west of this kingdom, passed Ireland,
which is still further west, and then bore towards the north, in order
to sail to the east, leaving the north on his right hand after some
days. After having wandered for some time he at length arrived at
the mainland, where he hoisted the royal standard, and took possession
for the king here; and after taking certain tokens he returned....
"This Messer Zoane, as a foreigner and a poor
man, would not have obtained credence, had it not been that his companions,
who are practically all English and from Bristol, testified that he
spoke the truth. This Messer Zoane has the description of the world
in a map, and also in a solid sphere, which he has made, and shows
where he has been.
"But Messer Zoane
has his mind set upon even greater things, because he proposes to
keep along the coast from the place at which he touched, more and
more towards the east, until he reaches an island which he calls Japan
[Cipango in original], situated in the equinoctial region, where he
believes that all the spices of the world have their origin, as well
as the jewels."
to the Duke of Milan).
his 4th and last voyage in 1498, he sailed with 5 ships and provisions
for a long voyage of discovery. John Cabot MUST have sailed completely
around the New World and far into the Pacific ocean. If he had continued
to China he would have arrived safely back in England. It so happened
that a Spanish armada led by pirate Alonso de Hojeda killed him and
took his maps back to Spain!! That is how Vespucci got a hold of them
and ended up with his foul name on the map of the New World.
stole John Cabot's geographical information!!
famous map of the world published in 1507.
is one of the first published maps showing the New World
as a separate continent from Asia. It has the name America
written on the New World.
At that time, only
one man could have known the geographical extent of the western
continent and that was JOHN CABOT.
Columbus did not even
reach the mainland until his 3rd voyage in 1498.
On his 4th voyage,
Cabot was determined to reach Asia. His expedition was ambushed
by Portuguese pirate Jasper Corte-Real and Spanish pirate Alonso

is no mention of the so-called voyages of Vespucci in the Portuguese
archives. Here is a quote from a Portuguese historian:
in the original chancelleries (Chancellarias originaes) of
the king Don Manuel, from 1495 to 1503, inclusive, nor in the 82,902
documents of the chronological-records, (Corpo chronologico,)
or the 6,095 of the chest-records, (Corpo das gavetas,) nor
yet in the numerous letters missive from kings, princes, and other
personages,—letters deposited in the royal archives, have we
found the slightest mention of the name of Vespucius, or of those
of Giuliano del Giocondo and Bartolomeo del Giocondo" (Viscount
Santarem, Researches Respecting Americus Vespucius and His Voyages,
and Portugal were RIVALS in carving up the New World. Each country jealously
guarded all geographical information and many times they were ready
to go to war over their rival claims.
Borgia prohibited ANYBODY but Spanish from going to the New World!!
is NO RECORD of Amerigo Vespucci ever obtaining a LICENSE to visit the
New World.... He did not become a Spanish subject until 1505, when he
married a woman named Maria Cereso. Here is an excerpt from the Bull
of Borgia prohibiting anybody from going to the New World without a
under penalty of excommunication late sententie to be incurred
ipso facto, should anyone thus contravene, we strictly forbid
all persons of whatsoever rank, even imperial and royal, or of whatsoever
estate, degree, order, or condition, to dare, without your special
permit or that of your aforesaid heirs and successors, to go for the
purpose of trade or any other reason to the islands or mainlands,
found and to be found, discovered and to be discovered, towards the
west and south, by drawing and establishing a line from the Arctic
pole to the Antarctic pole, no matter whether the mainlands and islands,
found and to be found, lie in the direction of India or toward any
other quarter whatsoever, the said line to be distant one hundred
leagues towards the west and south, as is aforesaid, from any of the
islands commonly known as the Azores and Cape Verde; apostolic constitutions
and ordinances and other decrees whatsoever to the contrary notwithstanding."
Caetera Bull ).
prophet rebuked the crimes of the Borgias!!
raised up a mighty prophet in Florence named Saint Girolamo Savonarola.
He was a Dominican monk and the forerunner of Saint Martin Luther. He
was the morning star of the Reformation. In 1498, he called for a Council
of the Congregation in order to DEPOSE Pope Borgia. This was the last
straw and led to his arrest, torture and then death by burning.
Girolamo Savonarola was a Florentine Dominican monk who was HORRIFIED
by the scandalous conduct of Pope Borgia and his many bastard
children. He was the forerunner of Saint Martin Luther, but unlike
Saint Martin, the only "bible" available to him was
the BLUNT SWORD of the corrupt Latin Vulgate Version of Jerome.
He was a spellbinder and great crowds flocked to hear his sermons.
Reformation would have commenced in Florence, and not in Wittenberg,
but for the arrest and murder of Saint Girolamo Savonarola.
in no uncertain terms Pope Borgia, Lorenzo de Medici, and the
corrupt lives of the Florentines.
By his preaching
he was able to clean up FILTHY Florence, and the people brought
all the lewd pictures, playing cards, dice and had a great Bonfire
of the Vanities.
It was his determination
to get rid of Pope Alexander VI that led to his martyrdom:
was resolved to make a final effort to procure the assembly of a Council,
appeal to it in his own defence, denounce the abominable life and
crimes of Rodrigo Borgia, and declare his election void as having
been obtained by simony. He would also prove that the Pope was a heretic
and an unbeliever, that his life was unworthy of a Christian, and
that he was accordingly the main source all the evils lacerating the
Church. Nor would there be any lack of documents, both public and
private, to support these charges. Thus, the necessity of reforming
the Church would be proved, and the enterprise finally begun. It was
in allusion to this, that he had so frequently repeated the phrase:
one day we will give a turn to the key; we will cry aloud: Lazare,
veni foras, and similar expressions. That day was now come "(Villari,
Life & Times of Girolamo Savonarola, pp. 642-643).
uncle was chief opponent of Saint Girolamo!!
wasn't by accident that the Vespucci family were named WASPS. Guidantonio
Vespucci (uncle of Amerigo) was the chief opponent of Saint Girolamo,
and the enforcer for Pope Alexander VI in Florence. Guidantonio was
also one of the chief influences on Amerigo as he was growing up. He
presided at the trial, torture and burning of Saint Girolamo:
Guidantonio Vespucci, spokesman for the bench of the doctors of the
law, who in the Pratica of the 14th of March had been the chief of
Savonarola's opponents, was the first to rise to his feet. He instantly
proposed: "That Frà Gerolamo rshould be privately examined
(tortured) by competent persons, so that when the trial was concluded,
only such portions of it as their Excellencies thought fit need be
made known to the public. That it would not be expedient to send the
Friar to Rome, but merely to inform the Pope that he would be kept
in safe custody."(Villari, Life & Times of Girolamo Savonarola,
Vespucci was substituted for Richard Amerike!!
Cabot's Bristol paymaster was named Richard Amerike. Merrick is a common
name in the U.S. and the name comes from the Merricks of Bristol, England.
When Vespucci saw the name Richard Amerike, either on a map of the New
World or among the papers of John Cabot, he noticed the similarity of
names. Right then and there his devilish mind began to concoct a scheme
to supplant Richard Amerike and have the New World named after himself!!
