Tom Steyer, Democrat Presidential Candidate Draws Strange Symbol on His Hand

Seemingly like magic and out of nowhere, billionaire Progressive hedge fund executive, philanthropist and Climate Change activist, Tom Steyer, became the sixth candidate to qualify for Tuesday's democratic debate. How did Steyer make the grade? Just hours prior to the deadline and needing two more polls showing him with at least 5 percent support, two polls from early-voting states showed him at 7 percent only one day away from the qualification deadline.



Who provided these necessary polls? Fox News, who polled voters in South Carolina and Nevada finding Mr. Steyer at 15 and 12 percent respectively. Sudden and surprising numbers for Steyer who hadn’t risen above 5 percent prior to the qualifying poll. (Read more here)




According to The New York Times, CBS News/YouGov polls released this week showed Steyer at 2 percent in Iowa and 3 percent in New Hampshire, with a Monmouth University poll that was released on Thursday showing him at 4 percent in New Hampshire.

With great wealth at his disposal Steyer has been spending a gaggle of money on the early-voting states which could explain this sudden, magical surge. Michael R. Bloomberg has been the big man on campus up until this point outspending everyone on the panel. Steyer has become the candidate to spend the most in the 2020 race spending millions on advertising on both national cable and broadcast television and a cool $20 mil on Facebook advertising, according to Advertising Analytics.


But, even more mysterious than his sudden presence on the debate stage was the symbol he had drawn on the back of his left hand. The symbol appears to be the Jerusalem Cross, comprised of five crosses originally designed to represent the Kingdom of Jerusalem from the 13th century. The kingdom was established by crusading Europeans who invaded and conquered Muslim lands.

There are several interpretations of the meaning of the cross. Some theories suggest that it represents Christ’s five wounds, Christ and the four gospels, the four main apostles and even the four compass points of the world.


In an interview with BuzzFeed last year prior to his announcement that he would run for president, Steyer was asked about the meaning of the cross that he has been writing on his hand every day since winter of 2017.

“It means to tell the truth no matter what the cost is,” he claims. “For a while now, I have drawn it on my hand everyday to remind myself to always tell the truth. I later discovered that it has traditionally been known as the Jerusalem cross.”

Yeah…okay…. riiiiight.


He told Politico it was a reminder to always tell the truth, even if you are put on the cross for it. He also said it was the international sign of humility, although this is not established as a "thing". (Read more about that here)

Tom Steyer, billionaire activist and long-term Democratic donor proclaims he is a Christian who found God at the age of 30. He claims he has not drawn a link between his faith and the symbol on his hand. It’s a message he has repeated since entering the race for presidency last July.

Steyer's platform and promise? To declare a state of climate emergency on day one of his presidency were he to be elected. He also condemns corporate interests that affect government policy. (Read more about that here)

Fox News failed to mention the Jerusalem cross sketched on the back of his hand, but made a point to draw attention to his necktie, another curious element to his obvious use of symbols to brand his presence. (Read about that here) Now trending on Twitter, Steyer’s plaid, tartan necktie, which he’s been wearing for years because “You gotta dress up for a fight,” he told the Washington Post back in 2013, has two Twitter accounts of its own: @TieToms and @TomSteyersTie. The necktie is an “old establishment” businessman’s symbol on its own.



Let me make sure I have this straight. Tom Steyer draws an elaborate symbol on his hand daily for over two years known to represent the Crusades and he wears a Scottish tartan, plaid tie practically every time he’s seen in public (which is not a nod to his own heritage, by the way. Steyer is Jewish.) So, why is he utilizing the symbol of a 13th century Scottish clansman who led the Scots in their first war of independence against King Edward I of England, William Wallace?


Because, it’s not about a symbol to remind him to speak truth and it’s not about William Wallace. It’s about the Freemasons.

Who is this man Steyer and what does he want?


Thomas Fahr Steyer, born June 1957, is a philanthropist, liberal progressive

activist, American hedge fund executive and a Climate Change environmentalist. He’s also big banker global elite.


He’s the founder of Farallon Capital, an American investment firm headquartered in San Francisco, California, managing $20 billion in investment capital for major corporations and high-net-worth individuals. He’s co-founder of Onecalifornia Bank which later became Beneficial State Bank. Since the mid-80s, he's been a partner with Hellman & Friedman LLC, an American private equity firm that makes investments primarily through leveraged buyouts and growth capital investments. H&F, also based in San Francisco, focuses their efforts on several target industries, mainly media, financial and professional services as well as information technology services.


In 2010, Steyer and his wife, recruited by Bill Gates, signed The Giving Pledge, a campaign that encourages extremely wealthy people to contribute a majority of their wealth to philanthropic (and, incidentally, all progressive causes) and by 2012 boasted 81 billionaires had made the pledge. It's a moral pledge, mind you, not contractual.



In 2012, Steyer sold his stake in Farallon Capital and sharpened his focus toward politics and the environment. He launched NextGen America, a nonprofit organization that throws absurd amounts of money at the progressive climate change agenda (which is really the UN Agenda 2021 and 2030), immigration, health care and education. He also attends the Bilderberg conferences.

Which cause is Steyer willing to donate half of his wealth? The Climate Change Agenda. Tom Steyer is big, banker elite, a globalist progressive who assists in funding the UN’s Climate Change Agenda.


On the debate stage of the Democratic Debate held last night, Tom Steyer flashed his Jerusalem cross making the Freemasonic lion’s paw hand symbol (signifying the Cult of Aton/Zion) while wearing a tartan tie. Do they really think we are this stupid?



The origin of Freemasonry dates back to the Crusades. While Masonry was officially established and recognized in England in the early eighteenth century, the origins of the organization stretch back to the Crusades in the twelfth century.


By the end of the 11th century, Western Europe had become a significant power, however, it still paled in comparison to other civilizations such as the Byzantine Empire (formerly the eastern half of the Roman Empire) and the Islamic Empire of the Middle East and North Africa.


Byzantium was invaded by Seljuk Turks and after years of civil war, general Alexius Comnenus seized the Byzantine throne in 1081, consolidated control over the remaining empire as Emperor Alexius I. It was Alexius in 1095 who asked Pope Urban II for mercenary troops from the West to confront the Turkish threat. The Pope commissioned the Council of Clermont in southern France, called Western Christians to take up arms in aid to the Byzantines and to recapture the land from Muslim control. The Pope’s request was met with immense response. European kings, princes, aristocrats, military elite and even ordinary civilians joined in the “holy” expedition wearing a cross as a symbol of the Church.


The Crusades were a series of religious wars between Catholics and Muslims in order to secure control of holy sites considered sacred by both groups. These bloody, ruthless and extremely violent conflicts, eight in all between 1096 and 1291 propelled the status and wealth of Western Europe.


The Crusades were the foundation for several knightly military orders, including the Knights Templar who defended and regained the lands. The Knights Templar, also known as the Order of Solomon’s Temple, were a Catholic military order founded in 1119 and recognized by the papal bull Omne datum optimum in 1139. The Knights Templar were probably the fiercest and most cunning of them all. It was during the First Crusade where they regained Jerusalem from Muslim conquerors in 1099.


The Jerusalem Cross, often called the Crusader’s cross, was placed upon the papal banner and given to crusaders by Pope Urban II. It is the symbol borne from the first Crusade that regained the land in Jerusalem. The papacy desired world domination and power and the Knights Templar helped them get it.

While the Order of the Knights Templar officially “ceased” to exist early in the 14th century, it endured as a large portion of them took refuge in the only kingdom in Europe that did not recognize the authority of the Catholic Church, Scotland. They reorganized under the protection of the Scottish King, Robert the Bruce and later found a clever way to disguise themselves and stay under the world’s radar by infiltrating the most prestigious guild in the British Isles, the Masonic Lodge.



The Scottish Rite is the oldest branch of Masonry, dating back to the beginning of the fourteenth century to these very Templars who took cover in Scotland. The names given to the highest degrees in Scottish Rite are titles applied centuries earlier to the Order of the Knights Templar and are still employed to this day. The Templars never disappeared. Their philosophy, motives, purpose and rituals persevere under the guise of Freemasonry. This is not conspiracy theory. It is supported by enormous historical evidence and is widely accepted today by large numbers of Western historians, Freemasons or not. (Read more about this here)


Perhaps, Tom Steyer employs the Freemasonic symbol to suggest his desire to aid in global control of land and world power? Maybe the tartan tie shows his membership in the Scottish Rite? Is the UN’s Climate Change Agenda being fomented and defended by the Order of global Freemasons.?

I’ll let you decide.
