GAEL force wind hits the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria sending them to the bottom of the sea of oblivion!!
No portrait of Columbus exists....No artist or sculptor considered the great "Admiral" and "Discoverer" of the New World a fit subject for a portrait.

Columbus goes to the king of Portugal.
With the dead pilot's maps and charts in his possession, Columbus went to the king of Portugal and gave him a long list of demands as his price for "discovering" new islands. The king refused his offer because he did not trust a pirate and he could easily send his own expedition using the dead pilot's maps and charts. Columbus then left Portugal and arrived in Spain in the year 1487.
Columbus in Spain.
When Columbus arrived in Spain, that country was completely dominated by an alien force called the "Bank" of Rome. Its practical outworking was the infamous Spanish Inquisition led by the dreaded Dominican monks. The head Inquisitor named Torquemada was also spiritual advisor to Queen Isabella.
St. Paul was the founder of the Christ's Congregation in Spain ... not Santiago.
St. Paul was the founder of the church of Rome . . . and the church of Spain.... St. Paul told the Christians in Rome that he would stop and visit them on his way to Spain. While St. Paul was on a ship bound for Rome, Satan raised up a tremendous storm which raged for 14 days. Satan does have the power to raise ferocious storms. His plan was to sink the ship or blow it all the way to the New World in order to prevent Paul from reaching Rome . . . and Spain!!
Washington City becomes Washington D.C. District of Columbia!!
In the U.S., the big push to canonize or deify the pirate Columbus came after the fall of the Papal States in 1870. On June 1, 1871, the name of the headquarters of the government was changed from Washington City to Washington D.C. —District of Columbia!! No expense was spared by the Knights of Columbus to glorify this thief, and murderer, A seal and motto, "Justitia Omnibus" (Justice for All), was adopted for the District of Columbia.
In 1937 President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed every Oct. 12 as Columbus Day and in 1971, President Nixon declared it a federal public holiday on the 2nd Monday in October.
