The Secondary Fathers : Leo McGarry

"...So, this is what He [Satan] essentially said [during an exorcism] :-

He said, 'We Do Not Have The Right to afflict people, or cause problems in these areas of their lives, by shutting off their finances or destroying their relationships, here -

Christ gives Us permission to do it, but We don't have any Rights -

We Do it, Hoping the Person Will
PLAY THE VICTIM
When it Happens -




What's That Mean...?It means, that when something really  BAD  happens in their lives, they will just go

"Look what's happening to me, there's nothing I can do about this,
it keeps recurring,
everything I do, nothing's working.."

so they just give it over [to The Demons] , so They can just maraude the person's life.

THAT'S THEIR GOAL
or at least,
BE UNIMPEDED

He said,
'What you have to do is, 
since We have no  Rights,
BUT YOU DO
by The Natural Law,
The Natural Law, according to Leo XIII, states,
(That We Know by Reason)
That :

WE HAVE RIGHTS OVER OUR PROPERTY

WE HAVE RIGHTS OVER OUR GOOD REPUTATION

WE HAVE RIGHTS OVER THE PRODUCT OF OUR WORK

And so, what He [Satan] was saying was,

'You Have Rights Over These Things

You Need to Reassert Your Rights
and
Kick Us Out!'

and that's what We started doing."

Bartlet heads to the door. He stops as he remembers something.
BARTLET
Oh, Roger, if anything happened, you know what to do, right?

TRIBBYI honestly hadn't thought about it sir.

BARTLET

First thing always is national security. 

Get your commanders together. 
Appoint joint chiefs. 
Appoint chairman. 
Take them to Defcon 4. 

Have the governor send emergency delegates to Washington. 
The assistant attorney general is gonna be the acting A.G 
If he tells you he wants to bring out the National Guard, do what he tells you.

LEO'S OFFICE.  
As Bartlet tells Tribby the procedure, we see Leo walk into his office to get his coat. 
The door to the Oval Office is open so he can hear the President and Tribby, but couldn't see them.
BARTLET
You have a best friend?

ROGER
Yes, sir.

BARTLET
Is he smarter than you?

ROGER
Yes, sir.

BARTLET
Would you trust him with your life?

ROGER
Yes, sir.

BARTLET
That's your chief of staff.

Leo, obvioiusly touched, stops for a minute and walks away.

Back in THE OVAL OFFICE, Charlie walks in. Bartlet continues to speak.
BARTLETOh, in the residence, in the second floor, the bathroom at the end of the hall.
You have to jiggle the handle a little.

CHARLIEMr. President?

BARTLETI got to go. 
[beat] 
You'll do fine. 
People have phenomenal capacity.

ROGERYes, sir.

Bartlet holds his book and puts his fist against his chest close to the heart. 
Tribby stands watch as the President and Charlie leave. 
After they've gone, Tribby is standing in front of the Presidential seal and looks around the Oval Office in awe.

The Secondary Fathers : Josiah Bartlett



What was Josh Lyman? 
A warning shot? 
That was My Son.
What did I ever do to yours but praise His glory and praise His name? 
There's a Tropical Storm that's gaining speed and power.


T.V. REPORTER
With 17% of the precincts reporting, we are now ready to call the Illinois primary for former New Hampshire Governor Jed Bartlet.

Everyone cheers, cheers, cheers all around, and hugs as "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang plays.

JOSH 
[pointing at Sam] Yes!
Leo enters and gives Josh a big hug.

LEO
Hey, hey, hey! Way to go! Now, let's get to California.

Leo runs away to party.

JOSH
Leo, we've got to replace this music, we've got to replace it with some Doobie Brothers!

Donna walks up to Josh apprehensively as the others party round.

DONNA
Josh?

JOSH
And Donna, you've got to get happy, Donna, you just won the Illinois Primary, come dance with me!

DONNA
No, Josh. No, Josh... your father died. 

Josh stares at her, stunned. 

FADE TO: INT. CHICAGO AIRPORT - NIGHT
In a T.V. screen at the airplane gate, we see a reporter.

REPORTER
...very happy Bartlet Supporters. We are told the candidate is in the suite, refining his remarks, he's due to be down here at any moment. Just over an hour ago...

The camera pulls down to the coolest blocking on television. Two men walk under the TV, one right past an oblivious Josh. The first man says something into his sleeve, and stops to stand about three feet away from Josh, near the counter. The second man, earpiece visible, walks past Josh on the other side of his seat, and stops to stand near the windows. Josh doesn't quite realize what's going on until a third man slides into view  in the front left of the screen. All of a sudden, Bartlet appears, walking out of the  right side of screen, directly behind Josh. 

[Do yourself a favor -- if you've got it on tape, watch it a couple of more times. It's the coolest thing ever.]

BARTLET
Josh?

JOSH
[jumping up] Governor!

BARTLET
Your father died, Josh. I can't believe it.

JOSH
Yeah, uh, Governor, you -- you shouldn't be here.

BARTLET
What happened? 

Bartlet sits down. Josh also awkwardly sits.

JOSH 
He, uh, went for his chemotherapy and he unexpectedly developed a pulmonary embolism, 
it's a --

BARTLET
It's a blood clot.

JOSH
Yeah. It went to his heart and there was cardiac arrest.

BARTLET
Yeah... Yeah.

JOSH
Governor, you should really get back to the ballroom, so that you can get on a plane and 
get to California. 

BARTLET
He was a lawyer?

JOSH
Yeah, a litigator.

BARTLET
Did he like that you were in politics?

JOSH
I think he would have liked grandchildren more.

BARTLET
[chuckling] He would've.

JOSH
He liked that I was working for you. He liked that we were starting to do well. 
He would've liked tonight. At least his friends and neighbors will be spared all the...  you know...  

BARTLET
He'd have been doing some bragging?

JOSH
Yeah, and your name wouldn't have come up, by the way. "My son won the Illinois primary 
tonight". Three more hours, and he would have been able to say that. He'd have been proud.

BARTLET
He was already. Trust me, Josh, I'm a father. He was already.

JOSH
I appreciate that, Governor. You should really get back to the hotel.

BARTLET
Nah, I'm okay.

JOSH
Sir, not that I don't appreciate you coming down here, but there's a ballroom full of 
people waiting for a victory speech.

BARTLET
They'll wait.

JOSH
Yeah, they will, but the people watching television won't.

BARTLET
I've been a real jackass to you, Josh.

JOSH
Well.

BARTLET
To everybody. Toby Ziegler, C.J. Cregg, Sam Seaborn.

JOSH
Yeah.

BARTLET
Don't think I don't know what you gave up to work on this campaign, and don't think that 
I don't know your value. And I'll never make you think I don't again. You got to be a 
little impressed that I got all those names right just now. 

Josh chuckles.
FLIGHT ATTENDANT [VO]
Delta Airlines Flight 175 to Kennedy International now boarding...

JOSH
They're calling my flight. 

He gets up, and so does Bartlet.

BARTLET
You want me to go with you? 

JOSH 
[stops] Go with me?

BARTLET
Maybe you want some company on the plane. 

He starts to feel all his pockets for his wallet.

BARTLET
I could get a ticket and come with you.

JOSH
Governor! California. You have to go the ballroom and give a Victory speech in primetime 
and go to California.

BARTLET
I guess you're right.

JOSH 
[laughing] You guess I'm right? Listen to me, Governor, if you don't lose this election, 
it isn't going to be because you didn't try hard enough. But it was nice of you to ask. 
Thank you, I appreciate.

BARTLET
They're calling your flight. 
Josh turns to board the plane, taking one last look at Bartlet, who nods encouragingly to 
him. Josh boards the plane. Leo walks up behind Bartlet.

LEO
Is he going to be all right?

BARTLET
He's going to be fine.

LEO
Good.

Bartlet turns around to face Leo.

BARTLET
Leo?

LEO
Yeah?

BARTLET
I'm ready.

Leo grins in understanding, and then joins Bartlet as they walk out of the terminal, 
several people recognizing Bartlet and stopping to shake his hand, all the while we hear 
Bartlet giving his speech.

BARTLET [VO]
Tonight, what began on the commons in Concord, Massachusetts, as an alliance of farmers 
and workers, of cobbles man and tinsmiths, of statesmen and students, of mothers and 
wives, of men and boys, lives two centuries later as America! My name is Josiah Bartlet, 
and I accept your nomination for the Presidency of the United States!
The speech ends, we hear cheers and applause, but we--

FADE TO WHITE.

DR. HOLBROOK [VO]
Josh? Josh, wake up, it's okay. 

FADE TO: INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - PRESENT
The camera is closed in on Josh, lying on his hospital bed, with his eyes closed.

DR. HOLBROOK [OS]
I want you to wake up.
Josh opens his eyes slowly and looks around, muttering something as the camera pulls back 
from his face. He is surrounded by Leo, the doctors, and Bartlet, who leans in.

BARTLET
I couldn't hear you, Josh.

Bartlet leans in closer, and then pulls back.

LEO
What did he say?

BARTLET
He said, "What's next?"

Bartlet lays his hand on Josh's head as we --

Thanatocracy

"Personally, I think The Survivors would envy The Dead."

Krusty The Clown 
(Quoting The Rand Corporation's Study on Limited Global Thermonuclear War)
The [Dr. Strangelove] War Room,
Sideshow Bob's Last Gleening
[The One w. The Fourth Doctor in it]



Thanatocracy
Noun
(plural thanatocracies)

1. Nominal governance by a dead person, through posthumous holding of an official position of authority, or by popular veneration and lasting influence of a personal ideology.

2. The enactment of mass and organized killing as an official policy of a state.

3. The enactment of policies held to lead, directly or indirectly, to death or an increased risk of death.

4. A culture in which rituals relating to the dead play a unique or important role.

5. (figuratively) Endemic stagnation or decay.

Origin
From Greek thanato-, "death", and -cracy, "rule".




" Mrs.John Brown "- The Queen-Consort is Dead;  and The Queen may as well be...
" King Edward [VII]’s apprenticeship for the monarchy was a long one. In 1861 his father, Prince Albert of Saxe- Coburg- Gotha, died. Edward’s mother, Queen Victoria, went into deep mourning and did not emerge from it during the 40 remaining years of her life. The queen was an occultist, as befits a royal house which has always been dominated by Venetians.
Queen Victoria retreated to her castle at Balmoral in the Scottish highlands, 500 miles north of London. The court was organized as a death cult, with every pretense that Albert was still alive. His laundry had to be done, and his nightgown laid out every night. Hot water was brought to his room every morning, and the chamber pot cleaned. There were two guest books, one for the queen, one for Albert, and so on. Victoria made repeated attempts to contact the shade of Prince Albert in the underworld – or the beyond – and these became the origins of the modern British occult bureau. As a result of these seances, the queen became convinced that John Brown, her Scottish gillie (attendant), was a powerful medium through whom the spirit of Albert addressed her. Gossip seeped out from Balmoral to London that John Brown was “the queen’s stallion,” granted every conjugal privilege, including adjoining bedrooms far from the ladies-in-waiting. A pamphlet about the queen appeared entitled “Mrs. John Brown.” 
Victoria was very like Miss Habisham of Satis House in the Dickens novel “Great Expectations.” This was the woman for whom time had stopped when she had lost her husband. When we factor in the frequent orders made for opium and heroin at the local Balmoral pharmacy, we get a picture of Victoria’s life in the Highlands. 
Prim and straight laced it was not.

"Windsor" - The House That Jack Built
"Edward VII’s first son was Prince Albert Victor Edward, known in the family as Prince Eddy and formally as the Duke of Clarence and Avondale. Prince Eddy, like his father, had been considered mentally impaired in his youth.
Prince Eddy was arrested at least once in a homosexual brothel. His main claim to fame today is that he is the prime suspect in the Jack the Ripper murders. This grisly series of crimes involved the murder of five prostitutes in the Whitechapel- Spitalfields slum of London in 1888-89. At the time of the murders, rumors abounded of the involvement of a member of the royal family, and of an obscure background of Freemasonic intrigue. The papers of the attending physician of the royal family indicate that he had indeed treated Jack the Ripper. A number of exhaustive studies have concluded that this was Prince Eddy. According to some versions, Prince Eddy had contracted syphilis during a trip to the West Indies during his youth, and this had affected his brain. According to others, Prince Eddy was part of a homosexual clique that killed because they hated women. There is no doubt that Prince Eddy answered to the best available description of the Ripper. Young Prince Eddy conveniently died a few years after the Ripper murders ceased.
A quarter of a century ago, a British physician came forward with evidence supporting the thesis that Jack the Ripper was Prince Eddy. A wire service dispatch from the period sums up the allegations made at that time:
“LONDON, Nov. 1, 1970 (AP) – The Sunday Times expressed belief today that Jack the Ripper, infamous London murderer of nearly 100 years ago, was Edward, Duke of Clarence, grandson of Queen Victoria and older brother of George V. The Times was commenting on the statement of an eminent British surgeon who said that the Ripper ‘was the heir to power and wealth.’ The surgeon, Thomas E.A. Stowell, while claiming to know who the criminal was, refused to identify him in an article to be published tomorrow in The Criminologist…. The Sunday Times, in commenting on Dr. Stowell’s article, said there was one name that fitted his evidence. It said: ‘It is a sensational name: Edward, Duke of Clarence, grandson of Queen Victoria, brother of George V, and heir to the throne of England. All the points of Dr. Stowell’s story fit this man.'” (Spierig, p. 11)
Shortly after having published his article in The Criminologist and thus made his allegations public, Dr. Stowell wrote a letter to the London Times in which he disavowed any intention of identifying Prince Eddy or any other member of the royal family as Jack the Ripper. In this letter Stowell signed himself as “a loyalist and a Royalist.” 
Stowell died mysteriously one day after this letter appeared, and his family promptly burned all his papers.
An American study of the Jack the Ripper mystery was authored by the forensic psychiatrist David Abrahamsen, who sums up his own conclusions as follows: “It is an analysis of the psychological parameters that enabled me to discover that the Ripper murders were perpetrated by Prince Eddy and J.K. Stephen.” (Abrahamsen, pp. 103-104) J.K. Stephen had been chosen as a tutor for Prince Eddy, who was mentally impaired. Stephen was a homosexual. He was the son of the pathological woman-hater Fitzjames Stephen. J.K. Stephen’s uncle was Sir Leslie Stephen, the writer. There is evidence that J.K. Stephen sexually molested his cousin, best known today by her married name, Virginia Woolf, the novelist. This experience may be related to Virginia Woolf’s numerous suicide attempts.
While he was at Cambridge, Prince Eddy was a member of the Apostles secret society. Abrahamsen quotes a maxim of the Apostles: “The love of man for man is greater than that of man for woman, a philosophy known to the Apostles as the higher sodomy.” [p. 123] Prince Eddy died on Jan. 14, 1892. J.K. Stephen died in a sanitarium on Feb. 3, 1892.
Prince Eddy’s younger brother, the later George V, assumed his place in the succession, married Eddy’s former fiancée, Princess May of Teck, and became the father of the Nazi King Edward VIII. If the persistent reports are true, the great-uncle of the current queen was the homicidal maniac Jack the Ripper. Perhaps the recurring dispute about what to call the British royal house – Hanover, Windsor, Guelph, Saxe- Coburg- Gotha, etc. – could be simplified by calling it the House of Jack the Ripper.
Of the existence of a coverup there can be no doubt. One of the main saboteurs of the investigation was a certain Gen. Sir Charles Warren, the chief of the London Metropolitan Police. Warren suppressed evidence, had witnesses intimidated, and was forced to resign amidst a public outcry about Masonic conspiracy. Warren was the master of a new Freemasonic lodge that had recently been created in London. This was the Quatuor Coronati Lodge of Research, number 2076 of the Scottish rite. The Quatuor Coronati [ " Four Crowns* " ] Lodge had been founded in 1884 with a warrant from the Grand Master of British freemasonry, who happened to be Edward VII. "

- Tarpley
* The " Four Crowns " in-question, being - presumably - in 1884 :
•  The King-Emperor of The British Empire
• The Kaiser of Germany
• The Tsar of All the Russias
and, (this last one is slightly more of a guess than the others, but not by much)
• The Hapsberg Emperor of Austro-Hungary
