The Golden Capstone Controversy

Greetings everyone,

I'm a portuguese student of Occultism, and I've been recently studying several ciphers, namely the "NAEQ" and the Illuminati Ciphers and their influence in several 'secret societies' and even the U.S.A.
(which curiously enough were founded exactly on the same year when the Bavarian Illuminati were founded by Weishaupt, with a difference of 64 days only), and I found something that may be of some interest to you.

According to several sources, the first cipher which was presented to the Illuminati Novice was one which replaced letters by numbers in the following way:
( check
http://www.conspira cyarchive. com/NWO/Illumina ti.htm )

A=12, B=11, C=10, D=9, E=8, F=7, G=6, H=5, I/J=4, K=3, L=2, M=1, N=13, O=14, P=15, Q=16, R=17, S=18, T=19, U/V=20, W=21, X=22, Y=23, Z=24.

Now, having this qabalistical key in my hands, I started to study the symbology of the One Dollar Bill (and all it's masonic/illuminati symbols, like the All-Seeing Eye, the Pyramid, the Eagle/Phoenix, the
number 13 -- 13 stripes on the flag, 13 steps on the Pyramid, 13 stars above the eagle, 13 plumes of feathers on each of the Eagle's wings, 13 bars on the shield, 13 leaves on the olive branch, 13 fruits, and 13 arrows), trying to get some "message" by analyzing qabalistically the sentences, etc, using the Illuminati Cipher.

Amazingly enough, it seems to work (!!!):

- The sentence "ANNUIT COEPTIS" has 13 letters and sums 169 (13x13);
- The sentence "E PLURIBUS UNUM" has 13 letters and sums 169 (13x13);
- The sentence "NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM" sums 229 (2+2+9 = 13).

Also some more curiosities:
- "One Dollar" = 91 (7x13);
- "Mason" = 58 (5+8 = 13);
- "USA" = 50 (the number of states);
- "Illuminati" = 81 (9x9) = "Phoenix" = "Pyramid".

Hope you enjoyed this piece of information!
Any other discovery about this will be most welcome :)

Best regards,

MAYDAY ALERT! -- (Appendix: Terror Date Code Analysis)
Note: this Q&A relates to the just published MAYDAY ALERT! --
A reader's question:
Captain, It seems like we were talking about this date period last fall or winter as being an opportune time for this type of event. I am not recalling why the 5th or 15th, but it seems like it was the 5th that was the date that was being spoken about.
Captain May replies:
Dates of interest are Mayday itself, which has occult significance -- and which the Bush league has already used, back in 2003, with the "mission accomplished" appearance onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln.
Other dates of interest have the "11" embedded:
5/5 -- since 55 is 11 x 5; the pattern has been used before, with London 7/7 and the Texas City attempt of 3/30, 2004. 3/30 is the same thing as 3/3.
5/11 -- this would be an interesting inclusion among the other major terror dates. We have Madrid on 3/11, 2004; we have Mumbai on 7/11, 2006. Finally, we have the date code for Congress giving Bush the Iraq war resolution: 10/11, 2002 -- with a date code 1/11.
Two other dates of interest come to mind: 5/22 and 5/25.
5/22 is a variant of 5/11.
5/25 can be interpreted as 5(2)5 -- the "2nd" 55. This pattern was used with the 3/23, 2005 BP explosion in Texas City, the next BP explosion after the 3/30 (33) 2004 event.
I have always maintained that the 7/28, 2005 BP explosion in Texas City was originally scheduled for our prediction date of 7/27, but Internet efforts delay it. 7/27 was a follow-up to the London 7/7 attack of three weeks earlier.
To learn more about the Texas City angle, refer to my article "The Texas Triangle -- Terror and Treason" -- http://www.theprice ofliberty. org/07/10/ 22/may.htm

MAYDAY ALERT! -- Terror Drills Could Go Live!
Indymedia Estrecho, Spain - 11 hours ago
It is an extraordinary measure, and the White House has stonewalled Homeland Security Committee members from the House of Representatives who wanted to read ...

By Dr. James H. Fetzer
Major William B. Fox
Captain Eric H. May
SFC Donald Buswell
The name "false flag" comes from the old pirate's ruse of flying another country's flag during an attack, thereby shifting blame for the attack to a party that had nothing to do with it. Governments use false flag attacks to push their nations into dictatorship or war. As military experts, we fear that national terror drills, scheduled for May 1-8, could be used to camouflage a false flag attack in the United States .
Strategic Signals
Yesterday an American-flagged ship fired on the Iranian Navy, and now Pentagon sources say that they have been ordered to prepare attack plans. Admiral "Fox" Fallon, the Centcom commander who opposed war with Iran , has been ousted in favor of Bush loyalist General David Petraeus, who has spent the last month accusing Iran for our increasing problems with the Iraqi resistance.
Saudi Arabia has been preparing for nuclear fallout from an attack on Iran since last month, when Dick Cheney paid a visit. Israel has just finished its largest-ever domestic war drills. Israel and the Bush administration are insisting that Syria and North Korea are nuclear collaborators. Syria is preparing for the contingency of an Israeli attack. Iran is preparing for the contingency of a US attack. US government insiders speculate that Bush has promised Israel an expanded Middle East war before he leaves office.
The Neo-Cons are pounding their war drums again, according to Dr. James H. Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, and he believes that nothing would help them spread their imperial war in the Middle East as much as another 9/11.
He has just published "9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda." http://www.amfirstb IntroPages/ ToolBarTopics/ Articles/ Other_Topics/ 9-11_Anomalies/ Dr._James_ H._Fetzer_ 2008-04-22_ 9-11_and_ the_Neo-Con_ Agenda.html The article is a must-read introduction for anyone wanting to understand the origins and aims of the " global war on terror."
Domestic Discord
Inside the US , Bush approval ratings are well below 30%, and approval ratings for the U.S. Congress and mainstream media are even lower. Over three quarters of the American people believe that the country is on the wrong track, and just as many want to end the quicksand war in the Middle East . The economy is crashing as fuel prices are skyrocketing. The Establishment is losing its grip on power. It would take another 9/11 to make the nation forget its domestic woes and resume its lost zeal for the Neo-Con "new American century" of foreign wars and a domestic police state.
In his much-discussed February article, "False Flag Prospects, 2008," http://www.theprice ofliberty. org/08/02/ 25/may.htm Captain Eric H. May documented the disturbing fact that military and police exercises were occurring at the same time as the 9/11 US attacks in 2001 and the 7/7 UK bombings in 2005. In that prescient article, he designated the Pacific Northwest as one of the top three target zones for the next US false flag attack, and the Pacific Northwest will be the target of terror drills May 1-8.
Should a major event occur during the drills, the Bush administration is prepared to implement National Security Presidential Directive (NSPD) 51, which establishes dictatorship "in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe. " It is an extraordinary measure, and the White House has stonewalled Homeland Security Committee members from the House of Representatives who wanted to read it. One of those members, Oregon 's Peter DeFazio summed up the feeling of many Americans about NSPD 51 when he said "Maybe the people who think there's a conspiracy out there are right."
Fears that a false flag attack might result in martial law are nourished by last week's militaristic Operation Sudden Impact, reported by writer Steve Watson: "Three States Subjected to Martial Law Sweeps" http://www.infowars .net/articles/ april2008/ 180408impact. htm
National Level Exercise 8-02
NLE 2-08 will involve the very highest levels of Homeland Security and the US Northern Command. Both "Homesec" and "Northcom" were established by the Bush administration in the wake of 9/11 to take control of the nation in the event of another terrorist attack. They will be joined by FEMA in the May 1-8 exercise, which is one of the two largest terror drills scheduled this year.
On Thursday, May 1, the exercise begins in Washington , when an explosion collapses the Alaska Way viaduct in downtown Seattle and damages surrounding buildings. Twenty minutes later, terrorists explode a highjacked tanker ship filled with highly toxic chemicals at the Seattle Ferry Terminal. Deadly gas soon permeates downtown Seattle .
Emergency responders come in waves. Police and firemen, first to arrive, are quickly overwhelmed. The state deploys its 22-member Civil Support Team, a National Guard unit, to assess the damage and coordinate support. Later, 100 soldiers from a chemical battalion based in Yakima arrive to rescue, decontaminate and treat survivors. Finally, 5,000 troops arrived to handle logistics and security.
On Monday, May 5, the scenario shifts to Oregon where VX, the most toxic nerve agent ever synthesized, erupts from the Umatilla Army Depot.
The next day, terrorists blow up a chemical tanker in Ferndale , Washington . The county sheriff requests national support, and a Marine Corps chemical warfare detachment from Ft. Lewis , Washington responds.
According to sources at Northcom, NLE 2-08 will involve "robust play," with "surprise injects" of unanticipated events in which participants are "stretched to the limit" and have "everything thrown at them except the kitchen sink." All of this makes it easier for the exercise to "go live" by having a real catastrophe occur.
As the Pacific Northwest scenario is playing out, Washington , DC will be simulating a catastrophic hurricane as part of the same exercise. It wouldn't be much of a stretch to suggest that this puts Dick Cheney back in the bunker he occupied during 9/11.
Citizens interested in understanding how local, state and national levels of the military can be manipulated into working against us should read "The Real Drill" by Major William B. Fox, about Portland area terror drills last year. http://www.lonestar absolutenm/ anmviewer. asp?a=2006&z=186
Mission of Conscience
Many American citizens are deeply concerned about police militarization, and about government and media preconditioning of our nation for future terror attacks and martial law. We recommend that they monitor NLE 2-08 closely. Armed with cell phones, cameras and the Internet, they are the single greatest deterrent against false flag terror.
If we, the co-authors of this alert, are in error about anything, then we invite reasonable officials to investigate us and our assertions at the very highest levels. In the past we have too often met with hostility, evasion or deception by officials involved in terror drills. We have been stonewalled when we have requested access to an extended schedule of unclassified military and police terror drills.
We believe that there is a pattern of official retaliation against patriotic service members who ask questions about 9/11 and false flags.
In 2006, Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell, an Army military intelligence NCO, suggested that 9/11 might have been a false flag operation. Within a month the decorated 40-year-old Iraq war veteran suffered a freak pulmonary embolism, which nearly killed him. After he was released from the hospital, his command accused him of disloyalty for his remarks, and subjected him to an extensive military investigation. Ultimately, he was fully exonerated, and the now-retired Buswell has become widely known on the Internet as the "9/11 NCO." Stephen Webster, writing for The Lone Star Iconoclast, gained national attention with his story about Buswell, "Under Fire! U.S. Army Intelligence Analyst Targeted for Suggesting New Independent 9/11 Investigation." http://www.lonestar absolutenm/ anmviewer. asp?a=426&z=40
The duty to keep the government honest isn't optional for those of us who have taken an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. It has always been difficult, and even dangerous, to serve the American people. We call on all active-duty soldiers, police and first responders to obey their oaths by asking questions that need to be asked, and by thinking twice before blindly carrying out orders that may result in an a false flag attack against their country. We urge leaders of those soldiers, police and first responders to explain that diligence is not disloyalty, and that no one ceases to be a free American citizen by putting on a uniform.
Issuing an alert -- as we are doing now -- is not an instance of "crying wolf," as Bush administration apologists often assert. As military-trained experts, we are convinced that the US 9/11 and UK 7/7 attacks were set up under the camouflage of terror drills. The existence of a wolf is not in question. The wolf of false flag terror has killed our fellow citizens and frightened our country into needless wars. It's our mission of conscience to keep it from striking again.

Police Get Black Uniforms To Instill Fear

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Springfield's men in black are returning.

The city's new police commissioner, William Fitchet, says members of the department's Street Crime Unit will again don black, military-style uniforms as part of his strategy to deal with youth violence.

Fitchet's predecessor, Edward Flynn, had ditched the black attire as part of an effort to soften the image of the unit. Flynn left Springfield in January to become the police chief in Milwaukee.

Sgt. John Delaney told a city council hearing Wednesday that the stark uniforms send a message to criminals that officers are serious about making arrests.

Delaney said a sense of "fear" has been missing for the past few years.
