A Gamayun is a prophetic bird from Slav, and Russian mythology although that is somewhat misleading as Russia is a relatively new State and the myth stems way further back probably even before the Gran Tartaria era, so when I refer to something being Russian I say it very loosely, but none the less it is the colloquially accepted term for our modern age.
So the Gamayun along with Sirin and Alkonost are the "Birds of Paradise" as I'm sure that phrase you have heard at some point in your life, so not totally wiped out of our psyche but close.
Gamayun is the prophetic female of Knowledge and wisdom, and she is predominately featured on the back side of our five dollar bill from 1896, but why?!?, what does Russia or Russian folklore have to do with our history.

I know in our current political climate it seems a certain political party, we wont mention names but any one who has been breathing air for the last 3 years will know which party I am talking about, would like us to believe that Russia is America's number one enemy.
Lets see if history and the facts warrant this attitude towards them.
First I would like to say that on a personal level I judge not who my friends are, but at the very minimum at least who my enemies are not, by who helps me when I get into a scuffle, you know, who comes to my defense, who stands with me.
To me that would be a start of a friendship, but at least I would assume if they are helping me they are not totally my enemy. Obviously people and countries alike have various agendas and not all agendas mesh with others, but lets see if my analogy holds up to a test.
During the Civil War, if it were not for the Russian Navy, the British would of succeeded in helping the South and the South would of won the Civil War, so lets imagine that for a second please, without Russia's help right now we would be a slave nation run by racist.
Now again I know the left leaning individuals and Democratic party would want you to think that is the way it is today but nothing could be further from the truth. The amount of woman and minorities that hold public office positions is staggering and most of them gained by general elections, meaning the American people are voting for the right candidate of their choice, it is called free will and it is the basis for our political system.
Lets jump to WWI, it seems, Russia and America are still good pals, helping each other defeat the Central Powers, so again, not saying we are the best of friends by any means, but when it gets thick we had each others back.
WWII seems to be more of the same! Russia and America, strong allies.
After WWII we entered what every one refers to as the "Cold War" between America and Russia, except in this war, no shots were fired and no troops were mobilized, the entire thing was political theater to keep the rest of the world at bay.
America made the atomic bomb famous using it against Japan, it makes no difference if you believe the nuke was real or that we just fire bombed those targets (McNamera's own words) either way the ground work had been laid and a fear propaganda frenzy took over the controlled media globally, with the message being clear "don't piss off America or Russia or else"
So let me get this straight, Russia has been America's ally since before America was America, and after a successful win over the Axis of evil in WWII, instead of celebrating together, we became mortal enemies?!? Not buying it!!!
Lets take a closer look at that bill, here is the front side (story continues below)
Wow, Thor throwing lightning bolts, lighting up a light bulb held by an Angel standing over America flanked by two young ladies, one sounding a trumpet, amazing artwork as well as use of metaphors, remember Thor is also what we call Thursday (Thor's Day), the rest of the days of the week are named after Norse deities as well, again more history hiding in plain site, just like Odin, Thor's father is a bass relief door at the United States Library of Congress.
Yup, I am beginning to see that prior to the Federal Reserve system printing our money as these are printed by the United States Treasury, our currency paid homage to woman and children as a point of importance.
Did you know Martha Washington was the first person on the One Dollar Silver Certificate, not George? You do now!!!
Look over some of these pre Fed Bank Notes printed by the real United States Treasury, let me know what you think below, but to me it seems we were more of a Matriarchal society and we placed a higher value on woman and children than we do today, but that is just my opinion, whats yours?
