Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree cut, on way to NYC

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree cut, on way to NYC
2 Comments

A Norway spruce that years ago was displayed on its owner's coffee table will soon rise in a much grander setting: the middle of Rockefeller Center.

Carol Schultz bought the sapling for the 1959 Christmas season. After displaying it in her home in the village of Florida, New York, she planted it in her front yard.

In 2010, Schultz and her companion Richard O'Donnell went on Rockefeller Center's website and made the 14-ton tree's bid for stardom.

Earlier this year, they learned it had been chosen.

It was cut on Thursday and lifted by crane onto a flatbed truck.

 
It will arrive on Saturday at Rockefeller Center, where it will be hoisted and surrounded by scaffolding for the decoration process.

The lighting ceremony is on Dec. 4.

    Folks the Communist Socialist Democratic Party with their Deep State Henchmen Intend to implement by Force, “Their ‘Will (Communism)’ on The United States of America.” This requires by Necessity the Disarming of All American Citizens, so that “None of Them (American Citizens) can Uphold The U.S. Constitution” via The Second Amendment (Right to Bear Arms) Created by Our Founding Forefathers to Stop with Arms, “Those (Communism by Democratic Party) whom would Destroy the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence.” “Currently the Company (CIA) Controls the Multi News Media via The Mocking Bird Operation,” which “Feeds a Constant Stream of Manufactured Propaganda.” A Fraudulent Mock Impeachment of President Trump is Underway, “Based Solely on a Pack of Lies, Innuendo, False (Non) Witnesses, Hidden Gestapo Tactics, and Never Ending Propaganda.” This Situation is Mounting Tensions Up to the Heavens as America Divides into 2 Warring Factions (Left & Right) Ready to Rip Our Country Apart in Civil Strife. “All Based on Falsehoods in Accordance with The Communist Manifesto Play Book (discovered in 1945) being Fostered by The Obama Administration to Overthrow The United States Federal Government (President Trump Administration).” Thus Our Country is on the Verge of Civil War… Hence, “There is a Man who is Possibly the Only Person who can Save America.” What is his name? “John Durham!” What does he do for a Living? He is a U.S. Attorney working under Attorney General Bill Barr (Former CIA & 322). His importance at this time in American History cannot be overstated. Why? “U.S. Attorney John Durham has been and is Currently Conducting a Criminal Investigation into the Coup D’etat underway in Congress with the Deep State,” as well, “All Other Treason, Insurrection, Sedition, and Tyranny against The United States of America.” Once U.S. Attorney Durham Exposes All of the Misdeeds Done unto the American Citizens and United States of America, “Hope, Faith, and Trust shall be Restored to All Citizenry.” The Washington DC Pimp Sease Pool of Total Criminal Corruption shall be Eliminated. “A Fair Honest Government Base upon Our U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence shall once again Ensue with a Country in Unity.” called, “The United States of America.”

    How sad is it that all these trees are cut down each year. Doesn't matter to me why people chose to celebrate Christmas however I would suggest that the tree has nothing to do with baby Jesus (but a lot to do with His nemesis) if you must decorate a tree might I suggest you cull one out of a local forest, buy an artificial one, or decorate a live tree then plant it.
