The Vatic Master is DEAD!!!

With sadness and respect, the Vatic Project announces to its loyal readership that Ms. Pat Rydz -- also known to the online conspiracy world as the Vatic Master, prophit0, & artist2@skywerx -- escaped her earthly bonds and bodily pain on Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at 11:18 pm after a brief stay at a hospice in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. She has gone to the eternal paradise where the likes of Mae Brussell and other strong, intelligent, and outspoken women for justice & equality have gone before and welcome her with open arms.

Forty-three days shy of her 72 birthday, Ms. Rydz kicked the bucket after several years of health issues that little by little took their toll and a cancer that finally kicked her dead boney ass into the funeral home's furnaces for family (blood- & chosen-) to squabble over her ashes, for her monetary estate was nothing but a hoarder's treasure in a rented single-wide manufactured home. Not one to mince words, she called it as she saw it and is laughing in heaven (finally without a smoker's hack) at this description.

Ms. Rydz was a veteran of the US Army, having served admirably as a nurse in the Vietnam War in the mid 1960's. After her enlistment, she attended Green River Community College and became the first female student body president, elected by a margin that broke voting records at the institution. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in Global Economies; she later went on to obtain a Masters degree in Finance.

Upon graduation, she became in the early 1970's the first female research analyst for a State House of Representatives. She was made Chief of Staff after one year, and was nominated as an Outstanding Young Woman of America in Washington, D.C.

Ms. Rydz has always been gracious with her knowledge, as was evident many decades ago in her tenure as Chief of Staff, where she trained the female interns from other schools to do research and more than the clerical help for which they were hired. She looked back fondly on her research talks to varied audiences, particularly those of senators and representatives, so they could make more knowledgeable decisions.

Ms. Rydz joked with me earlier in 2016 that she came to Pegosa Springs kicking-and-screaming at her then husband for relocating them from California (San Diego and Chula Vista) to such a strange, small Colorado mountain town near the New Mexico border and coincidentally close to the mysterious Dulce, NM. But she fell in love with the town and couldn't be divorced from it, unlike her husbands.

This is the portion of Ms. Rydz's obituary where some much beloved by Ms. Rydz, good old fashioned, bat-shit crazy, "conspiracy theory"-style speculation gets some play regarding her past, because otherwise this wouldn't be hers.

Ms. Rydz wasn't close to her real family made up of re-marriages, half- & step-siblings. Two brothers whom she hadn't seen in over 30 years made a trip to Colorado to see her (and her worldly assets) in the late Spring of 2016.

Ms. Rydz was married possibly three times so may have had (according to Google) former names Patricia Bader and Patricia R Mcdonald. At least one of her marriages had an amicable divorce from a loving husband, owing to Ms. Rydz's inability to bear children. Among the many obstacles that Ms. Rydz faced and overcame in her lifetime personally & professionally was the negative attitudes that sank below simple male chauvanism (& mansplaining) through misogynistic antagonistic behavior to outright criminality exhibited by men, sometimes closest to her.

At some point after relocating to Pagosa Springs, she owned and operated a successful mortgage brokerage business. Actions of a business partner -- I believe her husband at the time -- relating to the stealing of company bank accounts, skipping town, & shacking up with another woman that lead to its insolvency and the gateway to her dire straits. Later, the story with karma goes, Ms. Rydz had a hand in some of the additional charges against John Melvin Davis, AKA Gunkid, that got him locked up in jail. According to her complaint to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Davis had broken into her Colorado storage unit and stolen "several assault rifles, hand guns, some gold, silver and other ... items." (2006-07-06) (2005-07-25)

After the mortgage business venture, eventually Ms. Rydz pursued her artistic passion for creating jewelry with spiritual resonance, Puttin' on the Rydz:
"Custom design semi-precious stones and precious metals (gold, silver, copper); Costume jewelry (glass beads, curls and base metals)." As reported by Leanne Goebel on December 12, 2005:

Jewelry is a big holiday gift item and Pagosa Springs has options. ... Newly opened Puttin’ on the Rydz also sells semi-precious gemstone jewelry created by local artisan Pat Rydz. Rydz work is much larger and chunkier than the petite work of bead artist Kathryn Cole at Crazy for Beads (River Center).

Southwest Elegance Gallery and Gifts (February 10, 2015)

New from Pat Rydz! Pat has been very busy creating new and wonderful works of art. She is a local Pagosa Springs artist with a flair for the feminine yet bold. This piece is a unique blend of turquoise and copper and would be a perfect fit with any outfit.

Ms. Rydz was an informed and concerned citizen, and participated in local politics as what officials would most likely label and attempt to marginalize "a citizen agitator", because she was speaking up at public hearings about bad-shit & corruption. In briefly google-stalking my internet friend, I am intrigued about how TPTB (the powers that be) managed to get Ms. Rydz disqualified from a Recall Petition of Robin Schiro (2007-12-12); must be some damn good true conspiracies at play there. Real democracy involves letting the citizens be heard & their complaints acted on, like Ms. Rydz's public comment on smart-meters for utilities (2014-07-01): "Ms. Pat Rydz said the Town Council should not vote to puts the health of the citizens at stake."

The desire to share research & knowledge beyond her local community is what drove luddite Ms. Rydz to participate in internet forums (such as alternet.org cerca 2010) while authoring cumbersome daily emails in Microsoft Outlook sent to large distribution lists and running into issues with her skywerx provider. It was around this time that Ms. Rydz accepted my advice & assistance to refine her internet outreach, start her blog, and create her legacy: the Vatic Project.

Ms. Rydz lived on the fringes of the economy for over a decade, maybe even most of her adult life, for all I know. Since our internet friendship, she was always one car repair or one dental bill away from absolute desperation. Pat Rydz [said in tears 2014-08-06]: "If it wasn’t for [Veterans for Veterans] … I’d be homeless."

Even in roller-coaster health, Ms. Rydz remained passionate about her conspiracy causes even in the last month of her life (2016-06-03):

Luminosity Talks is pleased to present an upcoming lecture by Pat Rydz, entitled, “What’s Happening Behind the Scenes in Today’s World?”

Pat Rydz is a local blogger to one of the most successful blogs on the internet (http://vaticproject.blogspot.com/), sporting over 7 million hits and rising.

Pat Rydz has been sounding an alarm for nearly a decade, addressing many fronts, from DNA breakthroughs to exposing corruption in worldwide politics. In her blog, conspiracy theories come to light with hard-core research that likens her to an outstanding investigative reporter. Those who can’t handle it, mimic an ostrich. Those who can, become informed. Without knowledge, ignorance prevails, and there is a price to be paid for ignorance.

Pat Rydz states: "What you don’t know can hurt you. The elements involved at every level are too big for us to comprehend, but we must." Thomas Jefferson himself said: "A civilization that expects to be ignorant and free expects what never was and never will be."

I saw Ms. Rydz in person for the first and only time in March 2016 while on Spring Break with my family. Prior to our meeting & inspiration to putting effort into making it happen, she had informed me through our infrequent electronic communication of her failing health.

Although some of Ms. Rydz's obstacles with running her blog were luddite related, many were not. Yes, TPTB did mess with her, her computer, and her ability to post to her blog. (I've seen it and to a much lesser extent have been messed with, too.)

Ms. Rydz desires after her passing were that I do a blog write-up -- you're reading it -- to inform her dear readers of such. Further, she bequeathed me the Vatic Project, because she claimed that without me, it wouldn't have happened. Details of my plans to improve her legacy went over her luddite head, but she trusted me and knew that the project would be in good hands.

Ms. Pat Rydz -- dear Vatic Master --, your wise commentary and research skills will be missed by the online conspiratorial world, but not forgotten. May they survive to show future generations that some of us were observant, thinkers, and callers to action.

With fondness,

// M.C.Bruecke = the Vatic Clerk

Gosh, what a loss! Her blog was always well researched and thoughtful. It is a place you can send someone for info on many things and had plenty of evidence or researchable theories. I loved the Vatic notes as they were invaluable in helping to understand the big picture, as her opinions and insights were important. She seemed open and unbiased, except against evil. She will be missed. May her light continue to bring people truth.

Glad to hear her legacy will go on. You have big shoes to fill but I look forward to continuing reading the site and the info you put forward. Thank you for taking on such a task!

Thank you for your kind words towards the Vatic Master and your faith in my maintenance & propagation of this legacy.

Just a couple of new administration notes. The blog is configured to put comments into the moderation queue after 7 days, because I don't want to miss any (or acquire tons of spam), particularly on old articles. As Vatic Clerk, I promise at least once a day to appropriately handle the moderation queue.

... More to come, but I'm experiencing unusual computer manifestations of a negative nature. Time to reboot it.

Part 1/2
Okay, I admit (on my computer) I blew away an errant WD process because it was hogging resources. This may have created my unusual computer manifestations. And it might have only been a part of it...

Enough paranoia of being messed with.

The remaining Vatic Project administration notes are that August 9 would have been the Vatic Master's 72 birthday. A fitting date for Vatic Project content to start re-appearing. With some commitment behind-the-scenes by the Clerk, a dent in ordering the labels of existing content might be made.

The Vatic Master and I had our disagreements, small in number. She didn't want articles of a political nature being posted, because most were of the false paradigm of either/or Republican/Democrat choices. I disagreed, not with the truth of the false paradigm, but that some content from such skirmishes could be enlightening & should therefore get re-published. I deferred to her judgment during that election cycle. With this election cycle, I now decide.

Another interesting disagreement between the Vatic Master and me was when I learned over after-dinner drinks that she was a Trump supporter. I did not argue with her, kept the disagreement unuttered & internal, and gently pried her into her reasonings and then discussions meandored to other topics. The treatments for her bone cancer made her off her game and her research in Trump, this is my assessment. She said she liked how "Trump spoke his mind." In my mind & unspoken, I countered "what's on his mind that he speaks should be truthful and not so blatantly ignorant."

I am confident that had the Vatic Master run across the allegations of Trump raping a 13 year old 1994 and Trump's affiliation with known pedaphile billionaire, Jeffrey Epstein, [Trump] "I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump booms from a speakerphone. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

Part 2/2
... Had the Vatic Master known the above, she would have no longer been a Trump supporter. She would have published the article "Why The Recently Filed Child Rape Case Against Donald Trump Shouldn’t Be Ignored":

"Did you know that child abuse, rape, and pedophilia are some of the biggest problems that plague the financial elite? There are some very powerful people engaged in what seems to be ritualistic child abuse — whether it be against people in Hollywood, the military, intelligence agencies, or politics, year after year countless lawsuits are filed."

... Or maybe, just maybe, the Vatic Master was being coy at the time, playing the Trump innocent, knowing that I, as her Vatic Clerk, would rise on the blog to address her spirit to convince it (and the world) otherwise on Trump.

Indeed, Trump is taking a page out of the Mel Brooks' comedy "The Producers" where a down-on-his-luck producer and his scheming accountant recognize that a very bad show could be profitable. Trump is putting on a very bad campaign so that half the Republican party jumps ship to Republican-lite Clinton. Clinton wins in a landslide and thereby labels it a mandate (to do the bat-shit that this blog documents every administration doing, NWO, blah, blah, blah). Meanwhile, the RNC settles Trump's personal loans with interest to his campaign and other compensation for putting on an entertaining but losing fight, and leverages this fame into reality shows about politics, Trump style.

Bernie Sanders, the fly-in-the-ointment. Jill Stein of the Green Party has offered Bernie and his movement a platform.

I didn't know of Pat's passing until yesterday. She will be missed greatly, she was such an amazing lady that I have had the privlage of calling friend for the last decade and a half. But she was in great pain and she is freed from that.

If there is any details in my write-up that I got wrong or left out, let me know and I will update it. I only knew Ms. Rydz since about 2010, so your decade & a half has me beat.

It has been a privilege to have accessed such a wide range of highly researched topics.
May Vatic Masters light shine on, through the continuation of this blogsite.

I wish Vatic Clerk well in the brave endeavour of "carrying the baton" of enlightenment.
It is humbling to encounter such selflessness; in the fight to free mankind from the manipulations of the evil ones.

I wish you well in all that you do.
