After the Civil War the next attempt separate Texas from the Union happened on November 22, 1963.

Guy Fawkes (1570–1606) alias
John Johnson.

On November 5, 1605, Guy Fawkes planned to decapitate the entire British government by exploding 36 barrels of gunpowder in the Parliament cellar.

When the incendiary was discovered in the cellar, he used the alias John Johnson!

Following the coup d'etat in Dallas, "Accidental" President Lyndon Johnson was planning to decapitate the entire U.S. Government and rule over Texas from Austin.



Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973).
" Accidental" President from
Nov. '63 to Jan. '69.

Lyndon Johnson was ably assisted in the planned coup d'etat by "Pink Panther" Jackie Kennedy. For that assassination the conspirators followed the script for the Lincoln assassination.

Parkland Hospital with the body
of President Kennedy.

The timing of the assassination was critical for the plotters. Everything went according to plan and the President was pronounced dead at 1.00 p.m.

Federal Judge Sarah T. Hughes administered a "presidential oath" to Lyndon Johnson.

On the right can be seen the sinister Jack Valenti, who tried desperately to ban the 1991 movie JFK by Oliver Stone.

Johnson was sworn in with his
hand on a Roman missal.

Texas law required that an autopsy be performed on the President in Parkland Hospital....However, "body snatcher" Johnson escaped with the remains, and the coffin was quickly loaded onto the Air Force One double!

The Texas Capitol building at Austin was the planned destination for Johnson.

If all the meticulous planning for the coup d'etat went according to plan, the Air Force One double would have done a U-TURN and headed back to Austin, Texas.

Everything did not go according to plan because the Oswald double did not die in the theater!

Subsequently, Johnson was forced to return to Washington City!


A terribly disappointed Lyndon Johnson
made a brief speech after landing.

That was high treason in Texas in November 1963. After seizing the Presidency, Lyndon Johnson planned the sinking of the USS Liberty, and the Pearl Harbor redux in 1968.

Sir Charles Elliot worked ceaselessly to annex the Republic of Texas to the British Empire!

President Polk was a protégé of former President Andrew Jackson, and the main goal of his Presidency was to bring the Republic of Texas into the Union.

The Republic of Texas almost reached to the Canadian border.

It was meant to block the New Jerusalem from expanding from sea to shining sea (Psalm 72:8).

After joining the Union the Republic of Texas was bankrupt, so the Texas legislature sold huge areas to the United States.

5 new states were created from that vast area: Wyoming, New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Kansas.

President Jackson's greatest wish was fulfilled when the borders of the New Jerusalem were secured from Leviathan by adding Texas and California to the Union....Amazingly, Anglophile President Abraham Lincoln claimed that the U.S.-"Mexican" War was all about extending slavery!

President Polk (1795
President from March '45 to Mar. '49.

President Polk entered the Presidency at the most critical hour for the young Republic.

The President was surrounded by traitors, even his own Vice President was pro-British. Polk's closest confidante and adviser was his loving wife Sarah.

Britannia was determined to stop the expansion of the New Jerusalem at all costs.


Sarah Polk (18031891) devout
Christian spouse and adviser.

Newly arrived from his posting in China, where he obtained the island of Hong Kong for the British Empire, Sir Charles set his sights on acquiring the Republic of Texas.

Richard Pakenham (17971868).
Minister from 1835 to 1847.

Richard Pakenham was the British minister in Washington City, and he hated anybody who was a friend of former President Jackson.

Sir Charles Elliot was chargé d'affaires to the Republic of Texas, and he worked tirelessly to annex the new republic to the British Empire.


Sir Charles Elliot (1801–1875).
Chargé d'affaires from 1841 to 1845.

On August 23, 1842, Sir Charles Elliot arrived at Washington-on-the Brazos, and he immediately began negotiations with Sam Houston to annex Texas to the British Empire.

Andrew Jackson Donalson

President Polk appointed Andrew Jackson Donalson, nephew of the Hero, to the post of chargé d'affaires to the Republic of Texas.

Sam Houston was President of the Republic from 1841 to 1844.

Sam Houston fought with General Jackson during the War of 1812, and he saw firsthand the depredations that the British soldiers made on the country.

However, by that time gold had changed his outlook, and he
sold out to his former enemy!

Sam Houston

Charge d'affairs Donalson did his utmost to remind him of his friendship for the former President, but Sir Charles Elliot had unlimited funds to make sure that Houston opposed annexation!

Anson Jones (1798–1854).

Under the Republic of Texas Constitution, a President could only serve for one term, so Houston could not run again.

Anson Jones was elected to replace him and he was the last President of the Republic of Texas.

Jones was a protégé of Houston, and he tried to delay ratification, but the will of the people could not be denied forever!

The Texas legislature, meeting at the new capital at Austin, voted overwhelmingly to join the Union.


The Annexation of Texas to the Union
by Donald M. Yena,. Dec. 29, 1845.

After annexation, Sir Charles Elliot hurried off to Mexico City to "consult" with dictator Santa Ana and the Mexican government.

As expected, annexation provoked a war with Mexico!

The battle to unite Texas with the Union was as fierce as the Alamo.....It was a 3-way tug of war between Britannia, Mexico, and the United States!

If Santa Ana had entered Washington City with the rest of the secessionists, that would have meant the end of the New Jerusalem.

General Winfield Scott

To the dismay of the conspirators, General Winfield Scott marched into Mexico City, instead of Santa Ana marching into Washington City.

The only soldiers who put up a stubborn fight were the turncoat San Patricio Battalion.

To the great dismay of Apollyon, a great Bible prophecy was fulfilled when the war ended, and the New Jerusalem spread from sea to shining sea (Psalm 72:8).

Chapultepec Castle.

After the spectacular success of the U.S. Army in the U.S.-Mexican War, the British decided that only Americans could defeat Americans in battle. It was then that they started plotting the upcoming Civil War.
