Please get to know our company website, there are no false politicians on it and many of our companies on-line have no false politicians on them.
We have not updated our Jaguar presentation @ YouTube because of greater problems of lies about politics that affect the economy. How can they not.
There are no Masons in charge of this world. There are no NAZI’s in charge of any country. Donald Trump is not the president and Barrack Obama is not the savior of the world. The greatest mistake society in any part of the world can make at this point is continuing to esteem mason men.
At Angelcraft Crown Corporation Business and Media group we ask you that you do not work to destroy or cause others to hate or work against the companies that you love.
Be aware of how others try to provoke you against your favorite brand names and even provoke you against your country.
Everyday we face matters of justice head on and people are paying for their crimes and those [who] follow their lead can make life worse for everyone.
Eventually justice catches up with even those who make mistakes if they are not careful to correct themselves officially on the books where it matters most.
We cannot live in false world anymore, with false CEO’s in a world where false mason politicians no longer alive rule your hearts through their enchanted videos and false live media.
A false world equals a false economy and we cannot have that.
At Angelcraft Crown Corporation Business and Media Group like in all our companies, We are working hard to preserve Jobs around the world but you have you have to work past the lies about Politics and make sure you know who you’re doing business with.
We cannot support lies at any cost and who owns a company matters only to Nazi white supremacists who no longer own anything.
Other people care about who owns a company or runs the world in a different way than Nazi white supremacist do.
If you believe in a world that is not true you run the risk of poor emotional and psychological health.
If you know you have made a mistake tell others that you have made mistake about politics or matters of business.

(AI) Angelcraft International Good Sabbath – updated February 10th 2015 1:26 PM (CCBM) Crown Corporation Business and Media group. Updated Sunday February 8th 2015 12:09 PM Mountain Standard Time – The Cat in the Hat is out of bag and we have no choice but to write an article on the new ownership of the Walt Disney MGM Corporation and what some of are plans are.
Though CCBM is primarily an advanced technology business and media group, it is necessary to classify the International Walt Disney group under CCBM Crown Corporation Business and Media Group for the investiture of highly advanced technology and both financial and supernatural power and energy that we are investing in our Theme parks and our business as well as in civil engineering all around the world.
CCBM technology and satelites have abilities and functions beyond what man has created or imagined. They can cloak or hide themselves in space and deprogram any future dangerous military satellites made by men to try and conquer the world and are satellites that will be maintained by God supernaturally so no mans hand can use them for evil as masons did when technology funneled through scientists was placed under their command during the Mason Holocaust of the 20th and the first twelve years of the 21st century during the time of their human rights tribunals.
CCBM also works and launches regular satellites and when God’s hand is in the world — as it is today — no harm is done to the environment, however, we show scientist how to put a rocket in space cleaner, smoother and with less weight, danger and turbulence and greater efficiency and even when you do not feel God in the world as you do today, God still protects your ozone layer even if men put a hole in it, but we are responsible for our earth.
Walt Disney and Crown Corporation Business and Media Group is in all its power a creative force that it will exert its influence around the world.
God’s company first and foremost, Walt Disney and all Crown Holdings companies by God’s ingenuity and know how — is putting people to work all around the world in people who will train in many fields and have expertise’s in a job market never before made available to them.
The newly developing International Walt Disney Group is for our edification and our recreation. God has empowered me Principe Jose Maria Chavira M.S. Divine name in brief – Prince Adagio – to work all over the world simultaneously.
My divine name Prince Adagio is a name that will be used by the theme park for marketing and promotional purposes each in its own variation and language for theme parks around the world. It is the shortened version for my full divine name written for you below.

My prayer is to introduce lighter weight stable above ground bullet train technology into Disney’s Old Monorail system and also introduce it into civic planning around the world to alleviate ground traffic and nothing can override the Miracle of God that will override the prejudice from keeping us from developing third world countries with first world country technology.
Walt Disney’s main Board of Directors will be an eclectic selfless non racial prejudice group that will emulate all Crown Board Groups where fighting your prejudices will be easy meaning we are not going to force anything in your country that you already do not have.
We have many people in this world that are to God’s Liking and qualified to work on such prestigious boards, people that care for humanity without concern to race color or creed. I am thankful and honored to be working with such people and to know more like them as I get around the planet.

The future looks brighter than ever for people all over the world and not just the privileged few like it was under the Mason one world government antichrist system and a carefully unseen well hidden world religious democracy under its International Priesthood of Grandmaster Wizard Priests with 33 degrees of separation from God who killed millions for the power to operate an all satanic male hierarchy whose self interests included genocide and ethnic cleansing to rid the world of the color and variety that God loves so much.
May God be thank and praised for their judgement and the judgment of those that support them is secure. But we should not stop praying for our world and for our children and not fearing those that threaten our peaceful world and our good livelihoods.
We must try to be our own champions and if we are vexed by conspiracy of lies be by flyer or word mouth or even a radio and television transmitter — it is so we can defeat it on our own.
My employees and my media broadcast companies have standing orders every day not to support the conspiracy of lies and they know they will loose their jobs and maybe even go to jail for the severity of the crime of promoting Mason men who killed for power in satanic ritual and are now long since dead.

JV AGNVS DEI VERBVM DEI Principe Jose Maria Chavira Adagio Al Hussayni M.S. AGA KHAN V PRIMOGENITVS FILVS DEI HOMINIS SPIRITVS Nome de Plume JCANGELCRAFT
The Universes, the Heavens and the Worlds declare the Glory of God’s Holy Spirit and –all are matter– including our good angelic souls are Holy Spirit subsidiaries so that none shall falter when we as angels — in the flesh — fail God and each other at times in our ongoing journey through the compendium of time and space.
And as we live and move forward through eternity, space and time in every one of our reincarnations we are born again and become as a different and new person each time. See John 3:3 in the Bible.
When Jesus said, “you must be born again” there are implications that as Angels in human form, that I expect you to understand
And that is that being made in God’s likeness is not to live only once but forever in expanse of space and time and in worlds until we conquer the flesh and the spirit and that also means overcoming our pride and prejudice and remember it was by pride and self -righteousness that Lucifer fell nor by sex as he was cursed and never incarnated.
Christians teach about being born again (john 3:3), but it is not taught as reincarnation.
And as beings made in God’s image and doing the things that we have done and especially our unbelief would making living one lifetime a ludicrous affair and unfair to us and even I would not serve a God so short-sighted and cruel that as to shame us and send us to hell after only one try at life when it takes many lifetimes to beat our unbelief in reincarnation and our pride and prejudice.
Those who teach that you only live once and then the judgment, fail to expound on that. In each of your unique reincarnated lives you only live once as that incarnation and expression of your soul and then you get judged.
Every life you live in your journey through time and space in a different mortal body and culture gets judged and in every reincarnation you are a new person.
Truly our most advanced Angels are –in each lifetime and in every religion– Masters in the search for a better and clearer understanding of reincarnation through practical reasoning as well as scripture.
And Wizards Mason’s and those that support them have tried to make a travesty of India and Nepal through Democracy and have failed in their efforts to defeat Hinduism and their mastery of reincarnation and have also failed in Making Nepal a Democracy through self-immolation human sacrifices.
Intelligence agents and world citizens have read the pattern and concur that the statistics of self-immolation have gone up drastically since an Alianza effort to make Holy and Sacred Nepal the Democracy’s new religious hypocrisy support for fallen Angels having once again lost the “Vat” that is now again the Holy See .
Hinduism is not immoral and will be around forever and you will keep passing through hinduism throughout youre journey through time and space as you reincarnate on earth until it settles in well with you.
I pray our Other good religious institutions do not lose what we always start during a religious world reincarnation revival that is an incarnation of mine or a good angel that emphasizes reincarnation.
I pray it becomes mantra in those religions that fail to believe in it or have leaders that espouse the idiotic doctrine that a an angelic being gets to live only one lifetime .
Being made in the image and the likeness of God comes with the understanding that God’s plan for our lives is to enjoy our impossible surroundings while serving the light Our Holy Spirit that abides within us all.

August 8th 2014 – The Crown – Mazatlan Santa Maria Espíritu Santo -by Prince Adagio Nome de Plume JCANGELCRAFT.
Yet having no form – conceived of all things that have form.
When I am fully awoken to my current reincarnation and think of my Father and Mother –the Holy Spirit our God of no Name– I have to write on how happy I am.
Again I am awoken and once awoken Money means nothing to me yet it means everything to the Holy Spirit and I understand why.
Money poorly managed has made people suffer in many parts of the world and so I do not mind partnering with the Holy Spirit to help stabilize the world once again as we have done many times before in the past.
And once Angels who inhabit mortal Bodies wake up they realize what I do.The Holy Spirit is everything that is good on this planet; the magnificent and majestic rivers and waterfalls; the oceans and all life inside them; the mountains, the trees and the flowers and the bees are just a fragment of our blessed Holy Spirit greatness and wonder.
In the air we breathe the Holy Spirit is the Oxygen blend that makes life habitable for us on the planet and for fishes Oxygen is what they breathe in their liquid fresh or salt water environment.
Every system on this planet that feeds plant, animal and human life is an amazing scientific discovery that only these last several hundred years have we come to perfect our understanding of God’s greatness.
Of all people, good God-loving scientists are those that can best identify with me because they can go on for hours about how wonderful our creator is.
Understanding Omniscience is very difficult for the average angelic human and depending on your state and how fallen you are makes proselytizing you quite a challenge.
The Chinese and the Asians have an aged old Dance called the Dance of a Thousand Hands.It is the best that they could do and still make the effort look beautiful and symmetrical.
At Angelcraft Crown Corporation we tie our shoes just like everyone else.All Our corporations and subsidiaries that make those products you love or need the most are our responsibility when bad management decisions by angelic humans are made and people, animals, and environment are hurt.
What we really dislike is the Lying and the trafficking of illegal drugs and children by Mason’s and those that support them.
They lie about Democracy and are lovers of only themselves and those like them.
I thank the Holy Spirit every second of every hour of every day for being there for you.Naturally I do my part and its more than just ministering to you in the spirit or building companies and empires.
I have to tell you the truth when you ask me especially about miracles signs and wonders that I have called into being and the Holy Spirit has blessed things that are good for our world in many different ways.
I pray –like you should –for daily guidance from God our Holy Spirit in all things while fighting Mason Terror and their conspiracy of lies.
I pray and praise God as well while accepting responsibility for your judgment and can like the Holy Spirit do many things at once.
We are a team the Holy Spirit and I and have along with you participated in world events living in all the races and colors of people on the planet.
This is hard for fallen angels to accept and they come in many different colors and thus we have to warn you about them while judging them before they can do further damage allowing you also to be tested in your wisdom at times.
Its hard allowing the world to turn during judgment and being overprotective good people while judging the world is what I like to do best.This is called separating the wheat from the chaff.The chaff are the bad people.
I pray always for the victims of these fallen angels and feel sorry for their families and the children they have killed and feel nothing for their desire to move on without repenting for supporting a mass murder conspiracy and world governed by Satanists and hypocrites.
That is why taking over everything in this world does not bother me.I know my burden is easy and our yoke is light.
I am grateful for the support the world has given us of their own free will and grateful for the great miracles that took us back to our roots.
The Holy Spirit’s coaching and training about reincarnation and ways of winning your hearts for the right reasons I am especially grateful for.

All new company takeovers and their websites are dynamic and supernatural.
Thanks to God’s Holy Spirit all major company’s and organizations carry the allure of great success in the wake of their takeovers.
Prince Adagio added a section at General Dynamics as to “How to Pray” that has miraculously appeared in more than once place. He wrote,
“Prayer is as important to personal success and achievement as is study. Prayer and good working habits puts you in front of me and pleases the Holy Spirit. When you pray try to pray in secret always putting your hands together close to your heart and pray in your mind. I make it habit to write in my heart continual prayers to the Holy Spirit to accomplish my many missions that I have in this lifetime.” – Prince Adagio Nome de Plume JCANGELCRAFT
Regarding illegal military hardware start ups that try to piggy back off our takeovers or try to be unique are brought under the scruinty of Prince Adaggio the Son of God and his legal Team led and directed by God’s Holy Spirit.
Due to its military background General Dynamics and all companies like are closely under the watchful eye of God’s Holy Spirit. Any technology company with military apllications must be approved By God’s Holy Spirit or be taken over.
General Dynamics old website is currently in breach of contract and the culprits have been arrested and the website is frozen as evidence and left open to hackers that pose a threat to the state so please do not mind it if the old GD website is updated with military information. The information is all made up and part of the conspiracy of lies.
If it is updated and looks current, it is simply a police strategy to arrest people that again I say pose a threat to the state.

General Dynamics Corporation is an American aerospace and defense company formed by mergers and divestitures. It is the world’s fifth-largest defense contractor based on 2012 revenues.
General Dynamics is headquartered in West Falls Church, Fairfax County, Virginia. The company has changed markedly in the post-Cold War era of defense consolidation.
Before its restructuring, it originally had four main business segments: Marine Systems; Combat Systems; Information Systems and Technology; and Aerospace all of which our Holy Spirit will make use of for purposes of our International Space Station and Program at Angelcraft Crown Aeronautical.
Until 1993, when production was sold to Lockheed, General Dynamics’ former Fort Worth Division manufactured the Western world’s most-produced jet fighter, the F-16 Fighting Falcon. In 1999, the company re-entered the airframe business with its purchase of Gulf-stream Aerospace.
Another older division of General Dynamics is its Electric Boat Division that used to be its mainstay and original name. General Dynamics Electric Boat Division traces its ancestry to John Philip Holland’s Holland Torpedo Boat Company.
This company was responsible for developing the U.S. Navy’s first submarines built at Lewis Nixon’s Crescent Shipyard, located in Elizabeth port, New Jersey.
The revolutionary submarine boat Holland VI was built there, its keel being laid down in 1896. Crescent’s superintendent and naval architect, Arthur Leopold Busch, supervised the construction of this submarine. After being launched on 17 May 1897, it was eventually purchased by the Navy and renamed USS Holland.
The Holland was officially commissioned on 12 October 1900 and became the United States Navy’s first submarine, later known as SS-1. The Navy placed an order for more submarines, which were developed in rapid succession and were assembled at two different locations on both coasts.
These submarines were known as the A-Class or Adder Class, and became America’s first fleet of underwater craft at the beginning of the 20th century. Due to the lengthy and expensive process of introducing the world’s first practical submarines, Holland, short on funds, had to part with his company and sell his interest to financier Isaac Leopold Rice, renaming the new firm as the Electric Boat Company on 7 February 1899.
Holland effectively lost control of the company and found himself earning a salary of $90 a week as chief engineer, while the company he founded was selling submarines for $300,000 each.
Holland resigned from the company effective April 1904. Rice became Electric Boat’s first President, remaining there from that time until 1915 when he stepped down just prior to his death on 2 November 1915.
Electric Boat gained a reputation for unscrupulous arms dealing in 1904-05, when it sold submarines to Japan’s Imperial Japanese Navy and Russia’s Imperial Russian Navy, who were then at war. sources – The War Department and (Central Intelligence Agency).
Holland submarines were also sold to the British Royal Navy through the English armaments company Vickers, and to the Dutch to serve in the Royal Netherlands Navy.
The new pioneering craft (originally) developed by the company was now legitimized as genuine naval weapons by the world’s most powerful navies. In the post-World War II wind-down, Electric Boat was cash-flush but lacking in work, with its workforce shrinking from 13,000 to 4,000 by 1946.
Hoping to diversify, the president and chief executive officer, John Jay Hopkins, started looking for companies that would fit into Electric Boat’s market such as the Canadair (Canada Air) purchase.
Hopkins quickly found that Canadair, owned by the Canadian government, was suffering from similar post-war malaise and was up for sale. Hopkins bought the company for $10 million in 1946.
Even by the Canadian government’s calculations, the factory alone back then was worth more than $22 million, excluding the value of the remaining contracts for planes or spare parts.
When Electric Boat purchased Canadair, its production line and inventory systems were in disorder. Hopkins hired Canadian-born mass-production specialist H. Oliver West to take over the president’s role and return Canadair to profitability.
Shortly after the takeover, Canadair began delivering its new Canadair North Star (a version of the Douglas DC-4), and was able to deliver aircraft to Trans-Canada Airlines, Canadian Pacific Airlines and British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) well in advance of their contracted delivery times. As defense spending increased with the onset of the Cold War, Canadair would go on to win many Canadian military contracts for the Royal Canadian Air Force, and became a major aerospace company.
These included Canadair T-33 trainer, the Canadair Argus long-range maritime reconnaissance and transport aircraft, and the Canadair F-86 Sabre. Between 1950 and 1958, 1,815 Sabres were built. Canadair also produced 200 CF-104 Starfighter supersonic fighter aircraft, a licensed-built version of the Lockheed F-104. In 1976 Canadair was sold back to the Canadian Government, which sold it to Bombardier Inc. in 1986. General Dynamics emerges.
As the aircraft production at Canadair became increasingly important to the company, Hopkins argued that the name “Electric Boat” was no longer appropriate. On 24 April 1952, Electric Boat was reorganized as General Dynamics. General Dynamics was still flush with cash after the Canadair purchase, and, given the success of that company, it continued to look for new aviation purchases. In March 1953 it purchased Convair from the Atlas Group.
The sale was approved by government oversight with the proviso that General Dynamics would continue to operate out of Air Force Plant 4 in Fort Worth, Texas. This factory was set up in order to spread out strategic aircraft production and rented to Convair during the war to produce B-24 Liberator bombers. Over time, the Fort Worth plant would become Convair’s major production center.
As was the case with Canadair, Convair worked as an independent division within the General Dynamics umbrella. Over the next decade the company introduced the F-106 Delta Dart Interceptor (the earlier F-102 Delta Dagger being designed before the takeover), the B-58 Hustler and the Convair 880 and 990 airliners. Convair also introduced the first U.S. operational intercontinental ballistic missile, the Atlas. Management churn.
Hopkins fell seriously ill during 1957, and was eventually replaced by Frank Pace later that year.
Meanwhile, John Naish succeeded Joseph McNarney as president of Convair. Henry Crown became the company’s largest shareholder, and merged his Material Service Corporation with GD in 1959. Naish left in May 1961, taking most of Convair’s top people with him. GD subsequently reorganized into Eastern Group in New York and Western Group in San Diego, California, with the latter taking over all of the aerospace activities and dropping the Convair brand name from its aircraft in the process.
Frank Pace retired under pressure in 1962 and Roger Lewis, former Assistant Secretary of the Air Force and Pan American Airways CEO was brought in as the new CEO. The company recovered then fell back into the same struggles. In 1971, the board brought in Dave Lewis (no relation) as Chairman and CEO. At the time he was President of McDonnell Douglas. Dave Lewis served until his retirement in 1985. Aviation powerhouse During the early 1960s the company bid on the United States Air Force’s TFX (Tactical Fighter, eXperimental) project for a new low-level “penetrator”.
Robert McNamara, newly installed as the Secretary of Defense, forced a merger of the TFX with U.S. Navy plans for a new long-range “fleet defender” aircraft. In order to bid on a naval version successfully, GD partnered with Grumman, who would build a customized version for aircraft carrier duties. After four rounds of bids and changes, the GD/Grumman team finally won the contract over a Boeing submission. The F-111 first flew in December 1964.
The F-111B flew in May 1965, but the Navy said that it was too heavy for use on aircraft carriers. With an unacceptable Navy version, estimates for 2,400 F-111s, including exports, were sharply reduced, but GD still managed to make a $300-million profit on the project. Grumman went on to build the F-14 Tomcat, an aircraft that used many of the innovations of the F-111, but designed solely as a carrier-borne fighter. Reorganization. In May 1965, GD reorganized into 12 operating divisions based on product lines.
The board decided to build all future planes in Fort Worth, ending plane production at San Diego (Convair’s original plant), but continuing with space and missile development there. In October 1970, Roger Lewis left and David S. Lewis from McDonnell Douglas was named CEO. Lewis required that the company headquarters move to St. Louis, Missouri, which occurred in February 1971. F-16 success In 1972, GD bid on the USAF’s Lightweight Fighter (LWF) project.
GD and Northrop were awarded prototype contracts. GD, whose F-111 program was winding down, desperately needed a new aircraft contract. It organized its own “Skunk Works” group, the Advanced Concepts Laboratory, and responded with a new aircraft design that incorporated more modern equipment than the Northrop contender, mainly fly-by-wire flight controls.GD’s YF-16 first flew in January 1974, and proved to have slightly better performance than the YF-17 in head-to-head testing.
It entered production as the F-16 in January 1975 with an initial order of 650 and a total order of 1,388. The F-16 also won contracts worldwide, beating the F-17 in foreign competition as well. F-16 orders eventually totaled more than 4,000, making it the largest and most successful program for GD, and one of the most successful western military projects since World War II.
Land Systems focus In 1976, General Dynamics sold the struggling Canadair back to the Canadian government for $38 million. By 1984, General Dynamics had four divisions: Convair in San Diego, General Dynamics-Fort Worth, General Dynamics-Pomona, and General Dynamics-Electronics. In 1985 a further reorganization created the Space Systems Division from the Convair Space division. In 1985, GD also acquired Cessna. In 1986 the Pomona division (which mainly produced the Standard Missile and the Phalanx CIWS for the Navy) was split up, creating the Valley Systems Division.
Valley Systems produced the Stinger surface-to-air missile and the Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM). Both units were recombined into one entity in 1992. Henry Crown, still GD’s largest shareholder, died on 15 August 1990. Following this, the company started to rapidly divest its under-performing divisions under CEO William Anders. Cessna was re-sold to Textron in January 1992, the San Diego and Pomona missile production units to General Motors-Hughes Aerospace in May 1992, the Fort Worth aircraft production to Lockheed in March 1993 (a nearby electronics production facility was separately sold to Israeli-based Elbit Systems, marking its entry into the United States market), and its Space Systems Division to Martin Marietta in 1994.
The remaining Convair Aircraft Structure unit was sold to McDonnell Douglas in 1994. The remains of the Convair Division were simply closed in 1996. GD’s exit from the aviation world was short-lived, and in 1999 the company acquired Gulfstream Aerospace. The Pomona operation was closed shortly after its sale to Hughes Aircraft. Having divested itself of its aviation holdings, GD concentrated on land and sea products. GD purchased Chrysler’s defense divisions in 1982, renaming them General Dynamics Land Systems. In 2003 it purchased the defense divisions of General Motors as well.
It is now a major supplier of armored vehicles of all types, including the M1 Abrams, LAV 25, Stryker, and a wide variety of vehicles based on these chassis. General Dynamics Land Systems was hurt by the cancellation of the US Army’s Future Combat Systems program and the loss in the MRAP-All Terrain Vehicle competition.
General Dynamics Government lawsuit and settlement
On August 19, 2008, GD agreed to pay $4 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the US Government claiming a GD unit fraudulently billed the government for defectively manufactured parts used in US military aircraft and submarines. The US alleged that from September 2001 to August 2003 GD defectively manufactured or failed to test parts used in US military aircraft, such as the C-141 Starlifter transport plane. The GD unit involved, based in Glen Cove, New York, closed in 2004.
