Tidbits

***
Circulating around November 13, 2012: "Man Finds His Doppelganger in 16th Century Italian Painting[:] ... [Max] Galuppo[, 20, of Bloomsbury, N.J.], a Temple University student, found his doppelganger in a 16th century Italian painting by an unknown artist titled 'Portrait of a Nobleman with Dueling Gauntlet.'"

(Century 16, source)

Some points of interest include the word "doppelganger" (for more, see HERE) and the time reference to the Century 16. (For more, see here, here, here, and here.) There is also the Solomonic word "temple" (cf. here) and a reference to the very Presidential surname "Johnson": "The museum acquired the portrait as part of the John G. Johnson collection in 1917" (Source).

Posted on November 22, 2012: ""What if JFK had survived his assassination? ... It was 49 years ago today that Kennedy was killed on Dealey Plaza. His accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, died at the hands of Jack Ruby several days later ... In 2009, filmmaker and visiting Brown scholar Koji Masutani took on the subject of Kennedy and Vietnam in Virtual JFK: Vietnam If Kennedy Had Lived. The film was based on a book and considerable research on the subject by academics at Brown and the University of Toronto, who looked at large amounts of data and transcripts from the Kennedy administration." (Source).

Significant or not, JFK was born in the "Johnson collection" year: May 29, 1917). It is also worth noting that 2013 will be the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. Additionally, it will be the 100th anniversary of the institution of the Federal Reserve, as I previously noted HERE.

Predictably, the "Johnson" name shows up here as well: "After his death, President Johnson told the nation that passing the Civil Rights Act would be the best way to honor Kennedy’s legacy, but it took until July 1964 for Johnson and his allies to get the act approved" (Source). (Cf. here and here.)
