Humanity may be targeted by predatory Reptilian extraterrestrial species

Ancient Elite Island With Pyramid Found in Mexico

Richard M. Dolan, a preeminent UFO historian whose book series on UFOs and the National Security State is characterized by rigorous empirical and historical research, has affirmed the possible validity of the hypothesis advanced by researcher Laura Knight-Jadczyk that a non-physical predatory Reptilian extraterrestrial species may be targeting humanity. Writing in a preface to Knight-Jadczyk’s new book High Strangeness: Hyperdimensions and the Process of Alien Abductions, Dolan states, “It’s a rare book that has the ability to change one’s mind about the world. Rarest of all are those gems with the ability to change one’s life. High Strangeness is such a book…. High Strangeness is a book that lays out provocatively and passionately the hidden slavery of the human race.” Dolan goes on to describe the field theory set out in that book, “The human race is being manipulated physically and spiritually by a race of beings that we know as the Reptilians…. They can manipulate time with ease, they control the “Greys” and they live in what is known as the Fourth Density. Dolan writes of this field theory, “The Reptilians are able to manipulate and control us in just the way we can control cattle. But simply because the Reptilians live in a state of consciousness that is higher than ours does not mean they are ethical. They are, in fact, what we would refer to as pretty evil. They exist in what is called a Service to Self (STS) state of being.”

A significant phase of the negative Reptilians plan for humanity reportedly may be focused on a transition of planet Earth from Third Density to Fourth Density, possibly during Solar Cycle 24 solar maximum in 2012-13.

Christian Group Declares UFOs 'Evil Spirits' Of The Bible

A Christian counter-cult ministry will hold a symposium as part of the upcoming Roswell UFO Festival (July 03 to July 05, 2009), putting its own angle on the ongoing debate concerning the mysterious existence or otherwise of unidentified flying objects and alien species. Amid all the fun and mystery of this year's festival, which includes the rumoured appearance of legendary band Jefferson Starship, the Christian group known as 'Alien Resistance', will outline its Biblical philosophy that all UFOs are in fact the "evil spirits" of the Bible, according to a May 12 statement. "From a Biblical Christian perspective it becomes clear that 'aliens' are actually the evil spirits of the Bible," contend the group, which will also use the symposium to deliver its message on counter-cult evangelism, creationism, and spiritual warfare. "This idea is backed up experientially with the evidence of numerous testimonies of 'abductees', which show that 'alien abduction' experiences stop in the name and authority of Jesus Christ," the statement continued.

The Truth Is Out There, and the Nation's Maddest Scientists Are After It

Paranormal phenomena aren't just for Fox Mulder, Melinda Gordon, and Rod Serling. Even top academics can't resist a good ghost story. And maybe that's for the better: Brilliant ideas often seem crazy at first. Scientific American dubbed the Wright Brothers "the Lying Brothers" despite test flights witnessed by trainloads of startled onlookers. More obscure findings can fare worse: Germs, quarks, black holes, and continental drift were all once considered laughable. Still, impeccably credentialed scientists persist, as Lewis Carroll's White Queen says, in trying to believe a few impossible things before breakfast—or after they've received tenure.

Man-eating fly factory in Mexico accidentally released millions of man-eating flies.

Mexico outbreak traced to 'manure lagoons' at pig farm

By Elizabeth Fullerton
TUXTLA GUTIERREZ, Mexico (Reuters) – Tucked away in southern Mexico´s jungly Chiapas state, scientists work around the clock using radiation and powdered blood to produce one of the area´s most cutting-edge exports — man-eating flies.

Tuxtla Gutierrez, the capital of Chiapas, better known for spawning an armed rebellion in 1994 by guerrillas fighting for Indian rights, is home to the world´s only New World screwworm plant, breeding millions of insects each week.

It certainly does not seem to be an urban legend.

1) cochliomyia hominivorax is a real insect.
Is more info than you EVER wanted to know about the history of the insect. This site is from the National Agricultural Library branch of the United States Department of Agriculture.

2) The above message *is* from Reuters' news service, and can be read at their "Alert Site" at:

I would definitely classify this as a bonafide news report. Even news services are sometimes mislead, but given that everything in the story seems very plausable, consistent and reasonable given the existance and history of cochliomyia hominivorax, there is no reason I see to assume this is anything but proper reporting.

WWIII & UFOs/Ghosts with China and Russia

Tue May 12, 2009 21:03

COAST TO COAST AM: 10 pm - 2 am PT

Financial Turmoil

Starting at 10pm PT: Political scientist and expert in relocation for personal security, Joel Skousen will share his analysis of why the financial bailouts of the major banks are corrupt, and how the U.S. financial turmoil will be resolved by WWIII with China and Russia.

Did you know?

The Russians are building tremendous new nuclear/biological and chemical weapons systems--all with the assistance of US technology transfers. They are deploying on average, 3 new Topol-M 6th generation ballistic missiles per month. We built our last MX over 10 years ago, and are disarming unilaterally. Further, the Russian are building huge underground nuclear bunkers and weapons production facilities in the Ural Mountains, clearly intended to function during a nuclear war. The US intelligence community (under both Republican and Democratic administrations) knows this and are actively covering for the Russians, so the American people won't become alarmed.

Both Republican and Democratic administrations have been supplying the Chinese with high technology weapons systems for years, knowing that they, in turn, are supplying other enemies (Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, North Korea) as well. Both Russia and China continue to protest against any US anti-ballistic missile system, even though such systems are purely defensive. It doesn't take a genius to understand that ABM systems only threaten someone who intends to launch ballistic missiles someday.

President Clinton directed our military to absorb a nuclear first strike rather than launch on warning (our only true deterrent to a first strike) and to prepare to retaliate afterward. That first strike will take down all command and control, all bombers (since none are on alert), most missiles, and all satellite and submarine communications.

According to the House Armed Services Committee, the following reductions have taken place during the Clinton Administration: Strategic and General Purpose Forces from 1990 to 1997: B-52 Bombers have gone from 220 to 56. B-1 Bombers from 90 to 60; Strategic Defense Interceptor Aircraft from 36 to 0; and Army Divisions (1990 to 1997) have gone from 18 Active down to 10. Reserve divisions have gone from 10 to 8. Army Brigades (1990 to 1997) have declined from 8 Active to 3 and Reserve brigades have gone down from 27 to 18.

Joel Skousen's World Affairs Brief attempts to track the insider moves underlying the major stories you hear each week. The WAB is not a primary news source--but rather, the best source of news analysis. Joel's purpose and strong point is to help you see how world and national events are shaping up in accordance with the secret agendas of men and groups who control government. The World Affairs Brief puts together the probable set of intentions and motives of the power elite by inductively cataloging their specific actions over time.

What will you do about it?

What is the risk to you and your family if there is a major terrorist attack on a U.S. city with chemical or biological weapons? What will you do?

Did you know the US, by policy, will not retaliate on warning of a nuclear attack --effectively removing any deterrent? Are you prepared if the "unthinkable" happens --nuclear war?

Have you considered what you will do if an economic crisis threatens your pensions, investments and other so-called "guaranteed" income?

What about a major earthquake or other natural disaster suddenly upsetting the natural social order for months at a time? Could you get out of harm's way if massive social unrest erupts in the wake of a crisis?

What about your home? Do you have extra tanks of potable water should public water supplies be cut off or contaminated? Would you know how to collect and filter your own water if none was available for a long time?

Joel Skousen is a world-renowned expert in home security and Constitutional law. Joel, who publishes a weekly comprehensive analysis of world affairs, is also the author of books on home security, law, and government. His latest two books, The Secure Home and Strategic Relocation--North American Guide to Safe Places, address the myriad economic, biological, and political threats that face families living in today's complex world. The books also serve as guides for families wishing to relocate to a more secure area and become self-sufficient. In addition, Joel is available to consult privately with individuals to design high security residences and retreats, or to develop contingency plans for emergency situations.

Please email the Webmaster if you have any questions or problems with the website. You can reach Joel Skousen at his email, Joels @, if you have any questions about his work.

In the first half of the show, political scientist and expert in relocation for personal security, Joel Skousen warned that WWIII was in the works for the United States, China, and Russia. One of the main purposes behind staging such a conflict is to scare Americans into giving up their sovereignty to a new global government, he suggested.

Skousen said the collapse of the Soviet Union was a deception, and the heads of the Communist party went underground and became oligarchs. Russia plans a preemptive nuclear strike against America, he declared, by targeting such cities as Long Beach, San Diego, Seattle, Colorado Springs, Kansas City, Amarillo, Norfolk, Jacksonville, Kings Bay, GA, and Omaha, which all have military presences, as well as Washington D.C. However, a secret deal will be made with China, who'll betray Russia and attack them, he added. A nuclear attack by North Korea, or uprising in former Soviet states could act as a trigger event, drawing the U.S. in, and setting the stage for the world war, Skousen noted.


Paranormal researcher Jeff Danelek was featured in the second half of the program, discussing UFOs/ETs as well as ghosts. He believes it's more likely the ETs who visit us hail from other planets rather than other dimensions, and they come here for a variety of reasons, including curiosity, colonization, and the seeking of resources. Regarding alien abductions, one explanation is that the incidents only happen in the abductee's mind, and the ETs have found a way to manipulate the brain, and induce hallucinations.

After people die they enter into a transition zone, a period of acclimatization, but some remain stuck in this zone and become what we call ghosts, Danelek reasoned. He also detailed what he called "extracelestials"-- spirit guides, angels, and other supernatural entities, and apparitions, which could be non-human objects such as a ghost airplane. Some of his favorite ghost photos are posted here.



1. Sun Tzu said: We come now to the question of
encamping the army, and observing signs of the enemy.
Pass quickly over mountains, and keep in the neighborhood
of valleys.

2. Camp in high places, facing the sun. Do not climb
heights in order to fight. So much for mountain warfare.

3. After crossing a river, you should get far away
from it.

4. When an invading force crosses a river in its
onward march, do not advance to meet it in mid-stream.
It will be best to let half the army get across,
and then deliver your attack.

5. If you are anxious to fight, you should not go
to meet the invader near a river which he has to cross.

6. Moor your craft higher up than the enemy, and facing
the sun. Do not move up-stream to meet the enemy.
So much for river warfare.

7. In crossing salt-marshes, your sole concern
should be to get over them quickly, without any delay.

8. If forced to fight in a salt-marsh, you should
have water and grass near you, and get your back
to a clump of trees. So much for operations in salt-marches.

9. In dry, level country, take up an easily accessible
position with rising ground to your right and on your rear,
so that the danger may be in front, and safety lie behind.
So much for campaigning in flat country.

10. These are the four useful branches of military
knowledge which enabled the Yellow Emperor to vanquish
four several sovereigns.

11. All armies prefer high ground to low and sunny
places to dark.

12. If you are careful of your men, and camp on hard
ground, the army will be free from disease of every kind,
and this will spell victory.

13. When you come to a hill or a bank, occupy the
sunny side, with the slope on your right rear.
Thus you will at once act for the benefit of your soldiers
and utilize the natural advantages of the ground.

14. When, in consequence of heavy rains up-country,
a river which you wish to ford is swollen and flecked
with foam, you must wait until it subsides.

15. Country in which there are precipitous cliffs
with torrents running between, deep natural hollows,
confined places, tangled thickets, quagmires and crevasses,
should be left with all possible speed and not approached.

16. While we keep away from such places, we should
get the enemy to approach them; while we face them,
we should let the enemy have them on his rear.

17. If in the neighborhood of your camp there should
be any hilly country, ponds surrounded by aquatic grass,
hollow basins filled with reeds, or woods with thick
undergrowth, they must be carefully routed out and searched;
for these are places where men in ambush or insidious
spies are likely to be lurking.

18. When the enemy is close at hand and remains quiet,
he is relying on the natural strength of his position.

19. When he keeps aloof and tries to provoke a battle,
he is anxious for the other side to advance.

20. If his place of encampment is easy of access,
he is tendering a bait.

21. Movement amongst the trees of a forest shows that the
enemy is advancing. The appearance of a number of screens
in the midst of thick grass means that the enemy wants to make us suspicious.

22. The rising of birds in their flight is the sign
of an ambuscade. Startled beasts indicate that a sudden
attack is coming.

23. When there is dust rising in a high column,
it is the sign of chariots advancing; when the dust is low,
but spread over a wide area, it betokens the approach
of infantry. When it branches out in different directions,
it shows that parties have been sent to collect firewood.
A few clouds of dust moving to and fro signify that the army
is encamping.

24. Humble words and increased preparations are signs
that the enemy is about to advance. Violent language
and driving forward as if to the attack are signs that he
will retreat.

25. When the light chariots come out first and take
up a position on the wings, it is a sign that the enemy
is forming for battle.

26. Peace proposals unaccompanied by a sworn covenant
indicate a plot.

27. When there is much running about and the soldiers
fall into rank, it means that the critical moment has come.

28. When some are seen advancing and some retreating,
it is a lure.

29. When the soldiers stand leaning on their spears,
they are faint from want of food.

30. If those who are sent to draw water begin
by drinking themselves, the army is suffering from thirst.

31. If the enemy sees an advantage to be gained and
makes no effort to secure it, the soldiers are exhausted.

32. If birds gather on any spot, it is unoccupied.
Clamor by night betokens nervousness.

33. If there is disturbance in the camp, the general's
authority is weak. If the banners and flags are shifted
about, sedition is afoot. If the officers are angry,
it means that the men are weary.

34. When an army feeds its horses with grain and kills
its cattle for food, and when the men do not hang their
cooking-pots over the camp-fires, showing that they
will not return to their tents, you may know that they
are determined to fight to the death.

35. The sight of men whispering together in small
knots or speaking in subdued tones points to disaffection
amongst the rank and file.

36. Too frequent rewards signify that the enemy is
at the end of his resources; too many punishments betray
a condition of dire distress.

37. To begin by bluster, but afterwards to take fright
at the enemy's numbers, shows a supreme lack of intelligence.

38. When envoys are sent with compliments in their mouths,
it is a sign that the enemy wishes for a truce.

39. If the enemy's troops march up angrily and remain
facing ours for a long time without either joining
battle or taking themselves off again, the situation
is one that demands great vigilance and circumspection.

40. If our troops are no more in number than the enemy,
that is amply sufficient; it only means that no direct attack
can be made. What we can do is simply to concentrate all
our available strength, keep a close watch on the enemy,
and obtain reinforcements.

41. He who exercises no forethought but makes light
of his opponents is sure to be captured by them.

42. If soldiers are punished before they have grown
attached to you, they will not prove submissive; and,
unless submissive, then will be practically useless.
If, when the soldiers have become attached to you,
punishments are not enforced, they will still be unless.

43. Therefore soldiers must be treated in the first
instance with humanity, but kept under control by means
of iron discipline. This is a certain road to victory.

44. If in training soldiers commands are habitually
enforced, the army will be well-disciplined; if not,
its discipline will be bad.

45. If a general shows confidence in his men but always
insists on his orders being obeyed, the gain will be mutual.

Investigative journalist Paola Harris talked about UFO and ET phenomena and shared information from top researchers and whistleblowers. She also discussed Exopolitics- the study of extraterrestrial presence on Earth and its social and political implications for mankind. Here are some of her observations:
  • UFO/ET visitations are a planetary phenomenon, seen in many other countries besides the United States.
  • The late John Mack came to believe that later-stage abductees were being directly downloaded with data rather than being taken aboard craft.
  • Mary Rodwell (Australia) and Yvonne Smith, author of the new book Chosen are two people currently working in ufology whose work she is impressed with.
  • Revelations from the Vatican about ET contact, such as by Monsignor Balducci, suggest to her that key institutions are positioning themselves for disclosure.
  • The late Col. Philip Corso wrote in his notes of an encounter with an alien that came out of a cave when he was working at Red Canyon (White Sands, NM missile range) in 1957. It telepathically asked him to turn off military radar so their craft could take off.
  • There are a variety of alien types visiting our planet, sources say as many as 57 different species. Some of these ETs don't have bodies but appear as intelligent balls of light.

Harris believes that UFO phenomena is intertwined with aspects of the paranormal such as different dimensions and ESP, as well as Earth mysteries like crop circles and Bigfoot. She recommended the video clip Amazing NASA UFO footage, in which Jaime Maussan gives a presentation at the 2009 International UFO Congress.

Making a rare appearance on the show, first hour guest, noted scholar Zecharia Sitchin talked about his latest endeavor, The Earth Chronicles Handbook, which he called a "GPS" to his earlier seven book series. The new guidebook serves as an encyclopedic compendium of the myths and actual events from humanity's ancient civilizations such as the Sumerians. He said there is evidence that the Annunaki (visitors from the planet Nibiru which has an elliptical orbit in our solar system) left Earth in 550 BC but promised to return. Sitchin also claimed that astronomers had seen Nibiru but hushed up the information.

BenjaminFulford names of committee of 300, warns elite their days are numbered

More about the new financial system

The new financial system is based on the Luxembourg Yorkshire Treaty under the Marshall Plan. It is governed by deeply spiritual and highly disciplined men. Their names cannot be disclosed to protect their identities. There will be EXTREME consequences if anything is done to harm them. The members of the committee of 300 are hereby put on notice, their names are about to be published on the internet. Time is running out.
Furthermore, two separate reliable sources have told me the gold in Fort Knox is fake and that the Bush family has shipped the real gold to South America.

This is a list of the past and present members of the committee of 300. They are hereby put on formal notice by the rest of humanity. They must immediately surrender or they will almost certainly be hunted down by angry mobs, special forces and the world’s gangsters.

About the committee of 300

A member of the committee of 300 has provided additional information about it. They can trace their history in Europe back to the Medici family in Venice 800 years ago although the real roots almost certainly trace back to ancient Babylon. They made their first fortune as intermediaries in trade between Europe and the Orient. Over time they shifted their headquarters to Amsterdam so they could by-pass their Byzantine intermediaries and trade directly with Asia via the Dutch East Indies Company. They learned to control society with powder, gold and the pen. That is to say by a combination of murder (gun powder), bribery and propaganda. Now their headquarters can be found in three independent city states. The gun-powder or military capital is the independent city state of Washington D.C. The gold or bribery capital is the independent city of London. The pen or propaganda capital is the independent Vatican city state.

The members of the committee are satan worshippers. According to this member they regularly ritually sacrifice humans. He says Queen Elizabeth has bi-annual orgies at Balmoral Castle where a young woman is sacrificed. A good approximation of their membership can be found by looking at the members of the Knights of the Garter, the Knights of Malta and the Knights Templar.

They are now asking for forgiveness. Do you think they should be forgiven?

Annual Elite Conclave, 58th Bilderberg Meeting to be held in Greece, May 14-17

Canada Free Press
May 5, 2009

The 2009 Bilderberg Group Conference will be held at the five-star Nafsika Astir Palace Hotel in Vouliagmeni, Greece, May 14-17, according to author Daniel Estulin. Insiders have told Estulin that rooms have been booked and flight plans made. He has also confirmed the location and dates with sources in Greece. Estulin is the world’s foremost investigative authority on this annual secretive and exclusive assembly, having investigated and infiltrated their meetings for over ten years.

His books and reporting have helped to bring the powerful group out of the shadows, even directly affecting the very conduct and timing of the meetings … and encapsulating them in an even deeper shroud of secrecy. The Bilderberg Group started meeting in 1954, with funding from the CIA, to gather together the top Western bankers, politicians, media barons, corporate CEO‘s and European royalty in annual gatherings for frank discussions on important issues of the day.

Promoting the first edition of his best-selling book, Daniel came to the United States in the fall of 2007 and told audiences about the upcoming housing mess and resulting financial turmoil, with many homeowners owing far more than their properties were worth. On a similar tour in the spring of 2008, he announced that we were just a few months from financial calamity. These predictions were based upon his understanding of the international maneuvers of the Bilderberg Group. Though the people responded, the press was largely a no-show. The same press then “failed” to report the year’s largest gathering of elites: the royalty, bankers, CEOs, media big-wigs and high government officials at the 57th annual Bilderberg meeting in June 2008. Daniel’s coverage of that meeting provides additional material for the new North American Union edition of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, which has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide in 48 languages.

According to Estulin’s sources, here are a few of the talking points and concerns for this year’s meeting:

*The future of the US dollar and US economy: The plan is for the Bilderberg Group players, through their allies in Washington and Wall Street to continue to deceive millions of savers and investors who believe the hype about the supposed up-turn in the economy. They are about to be set up for massive losses and searing financial pain in the months ahead. The bank “stress tests” now being conducted by Washington are little more than a shameless hoax: Based on the irrational assumption that the economy won’t get as bad as it already is!

*US unemployment: Solutions and assumptions (Stated as such in the pre-meeting booklet sent out to attendees.) Bilderberg is quietly assuming that US unemployment numbers will hover around 14% by the end of this year, far higher than the official numbers released by the US government.

*Depression or a prolonged stagnation? (Stated as such in the pre-meeting booklet sent out to attendees.) Bilderberg is looking at two options: Either a prolonged, agonizing depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline, and poverty … or an intense-but-shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.

*There will be a final push for the enactment of Lisbon Treaty, pending on Irish voting YES on the treaty in Sept or October. One of their concerns is addressing and neutralizing the anti-Lisbon treaty movement called “Libertas” led by Declan Ganley. One of the Bilderberger planned moves is to use a whispering campaign in the US media suggested that Ganley is being funded by arms dealers in the US linked to the US military.

Precipitation Enhancement: Active Weather Modification Campaigns
Treaty Issues: “Local, non-permanent changes, such as precipitation enhancement, hail suppression , fog and cloud dispersal, are permitted under the U. N. treaty.”

Robert Allison
Tuesday, May 12, 2009

New revelations have shed more light on weather modification programs, also referred to as geo-engineering, commonly called chem-trails. The “new” terminology, ‘Precipitation Enhancement‘, has revealed government and governmental contractors have been dispersing chemicals into the atmosphere on a regular basis for decades, dating back to the 1950’s. This article is an attempt to remove the conspiracy theory label that has been attached to very real man-made phenomenon of weather modification.

Precipitation Enhancement programs are ongoing in Texas, California, Australia, China, Iran, and many other locations worldwide. The following programs are documented, and the websites below list the flight missions over Central and South Texas:

There are currently at least 10 precipitation programs underway in Texas, covering more than 50 million acres, under the Edwards Aquifer Authority since 1999. California has cloud seeding programs underway under the authority of Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E).

Water management is the supposed justification for many of these programs, but upon further investigation, flash flooding and severe thunderstorms are typical results. This link takes you to a summary of some of the missions over South and Central Texas, and if you open the first two Daily Reports (PDFs), flash floods, and severe storms the precipitation enhancement missions caused are documented. As a side note, flood insurance in Texas is hard to obtain.

The U.S. Military has been involved in weather modification for half a century, and the extent to which they have progressed is still unknown, however we do know that droughts, floods and general degradation of enemy forces are a few objectives the Air Force can produce. This document describes the known uses for military applications of weather modification, and this link will take you to a database of weather modification PDFs.

Waylon “Ben” Livingston, aka the father of weather weapons, in an interview with documentary film-maker Alex Jones, admitted the weather was being modified around the world, using what was learned a half-decade ago flooding the Ho Chi Minh trail in Vietnam.

We now have documentation revealing Geo-engineering (1), (2), (3), (4), Weather Modification (5), and Precipitation Enhancement (6), from governments, universities, private companies and public companies such as water districts. The debate about whether or not chemicals are being dispersed in our sky on a regular basis should now shift to focusing on what recourse we the people have to stop these unnatural and harmful secret programs.

As stated above, “Local, non-permanent changes, such as precipitation enhancement, hail suppression, fog and cloud dispersal, are permitted under the U.N. treaty banning weather modification” , conveniently enough, due to legal loopholes. If you obtain a permit, you can modify the weather, just be sure to follow the 200 pages of guidelines.

Police Encourage Citizens To Report People Who Drive Nice Cars

Those who can afford to buy expensive items and live a nice lifestyle are probably criminals, according to UK authorities

Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Police in the UK are encouraging citizens to report people who drive nice cars or buy expensive items to the authorities in a new campaign entitled, ‘Too Much Bling? Give Us a Ring’.

“The Gloucestershire force is encouraging members of the public to report people wearing too much ‘bling’ during the recession. They are also urging people to shop anyone who drives flash cars or buys expensive items without the apparent means to afford them during the credit crunch,” reports the Daily Mail.

Posters for the campaign indicate that the targets of the stasi-like crackdown are well-dressed people who own expensive cars, boats and smoke cigars. Apparently, police in the UK think that actually being middle class and able to afford a nice lifestyle is a sign of probable criminal behavior.

Gloucestershire’s Chief constable Dr Timothy Brain said, “In the current time of financial uncertainty, those who live a lavish lifestyle with no discernable, legitimate income become even more apparent.”

Police State Study Ranks US As 6th Worst In The World

Steve Watson

A study designed to rank countries in terms of how aggressively they monitor their populations electronically, has placed the US as 6th and the UK as 5th on a global index.

The two countries lag behind only China, North Korea, Belarus and Russia in terms of governmental surveillance.

The report, titled The Electronic Police State, (PDF link) was compiled from information available from different organizations such as the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Reporters Without Borders, Freedom House, the Ludwig von Mises Institute and The Heritage Foundation.

52 countries were rated on 17 criteria with regard to how far down the line they are toward a total electronic police state.

The study was undertaken by a private company called “CryptoHippie“, which specializes in privacy technologies.

Experience electric shot for training

FORT WAYNE, Ind., (WANE) --- - Instead of bad guys, more than a dozen police officers were tased as part of taser training Tuesday morning at the Public Safety Academy.

It’s an eight hour training with five very painful seconds.

Officer Edward Black describes the pain as “a very fast pace pulsing sensation going up my spine.”

“It’s an eternity, but once it’s over, it’s over,” Officer Scott Morales told NewsChannel 15. “When I got hit, I tried to think about going down, but I couldn’t. I was one solid muscle and there’s nothing you can do.”

Military Police at the Kentucky Derby

Source: Infowars

A Google News search does not produce a story or even a brief mention of the fact military police were on hand at the Kentucky Derby to keep restless plebs in line. However, an Associated Press photograph, posted on the Yahoo! News website, shows two MPs in combat fatigues with side arms restraining a man at the derby.

“Military police detain a fan who ran onto the track following the running of the 135th Kentucky Derby horse race at Churchill Downs Saturday, May 2, 2009, in Louisville, Ky.,” the photo caption reads.

The photo was also included in a slideshow on the Yahoo! Sports website, although the text of the article does not contain a mention of military police at the event.

“The military has NO BUSINESS policing the citizens except during extraordinarily exceptional times of national emergency by an executive order. This is very disturbing and completely un-American. Maybe even more disturbing is that no one seems to care how quietly and easily we have accepted the burgeoning police state,” an article comment states.

Infowars has reported on numerous instances of military involvement with local law enforcement in violation of Posse Comitatus. In March, we reported on U.S. Army troops dispatched to patrol the streets of Samson, Alabama, after a murder spree.

On April 6, we reported on a DHS, federal, state, Air Force, and local law enforcement checkpoint in Tennessee. On April 3, Infowars was instrumental in the cancellation of a seatbelt checkpoint that was to be conducted in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security and the 251st Military Police in Bolivar, Tennessee.

Last December, we reported on the Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center dispatching troops to work with police on checkpoints in in San Bernardino County, California.

On Aprill 22, we reported the deployment of 400 National Guard Combat Support Battalion troops to “maintain public order” at the Boston Marathon.

Last June, Infowars posted an article by D. H. Williams of the Daily Newscaster reporting the deployment of 2,300 Marines in the city of Indianapolis under the direction of FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

Prison Planet’s Paul Joseph Watson reported a story on April 22 covering the assault of a local television news team by an irate police officer in El Paso, Texas. A video taken by the news videographer shows uniformed soldiers working with police officers at the scene of a car accident.

The presence of uniformed and armed military police at the Kentucky Derby is part of an ongoing campaign to acclimate the populace to the presence of soldiers at public events.

First, it was a Missouri Analysis and Information Center (MIAC) report; then it was a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report; now it is a New York congressman's bill. Each of these items, taken on their own, is problematic enough; taken together they portend "a clear and present danger" to the liberties of the American people. It is getting very serious now.

As readers may recall, the MIAC report profiled certain people as being potential violence-prone "militia members": including people who supported Presidential candidates Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and myself. In addition, anyone who opposed one or more of the following were also included in the list: the New World Order, the U.N., gun control, the violation of Posse Comitatus, the Federal Reserve, the Income Tax, the Ammunition Accountability Act, a possible Constitutional Convention, the North American Union, the Universal Service Program, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), abortion on demand, or illegal immigration.

The MIAC report prompted a firestorm of protest, and was eventually rescinded, with the man responsible for its distribution being dismissed from his position. The DHS report profiled many of the same people included in the MIAC report, and added returning Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans as potentially dangerous "extremists."

As I have said before, it is very likely that when all of the opinions and views of the above lists are counted, 75% or more of the American people would be included. Yet, these government reports would have law enforcement personnel to believe we are all dangerous extremists that need to be watched and guarded against. If this was not bad enough, a New York congressman has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives to deny Second Amendment rights to everyone listed above.

According to World Net Daily, May 9, 2009, "A new gun law being considered in Congress, if aligned with Department of Homeland Security memos labeling everyday Americans a potential 'threats,' could potentially deny firearms to pro-lifers, gun-rights advocates, tax protesters, animal rights activists, and a host of others--any already on the expansive DHS watch list for potential 'extremism.'

"Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., has sponsored H.R. 2159, the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009, which permits the attorney general to deny transfer of a firearm to any 'known or suspected dangerous terrorist.' The bill requires only that the potential firearm transferee is 'appropriately suspected' of preparing for a terrorist act and that the attorney general 'has a reasonable belief' that the gun might be used in connection with terrorism.

"Gun rights advocates, however, object to the bill's language, arguing that it enables the federal government to suspend a person's Second Amendment rights without any trial or legal proof and only upon suspicion of being 'dangerous.'"

WND quotes Gun Owners of America Executive Director Larry Pratt as saying, "By [DHS] standards, I'm one of [DHS Secretary] Janet Napolitano's terrorists. This bill would enable the attorney general to put all of the people who voted against Obama on no-gun lists, because according to the DHS, they're all potential terrorists. Actually, we could rename this bill the Janet Napolitano Frenzied Fantasy Implementation Act of 2009."

Pratt was also quoted as saying, "Unbeknownst to us, some bureaucrat in the bowels of democracy can put your name on a list, and your Second Amendment rights are toast." He went on to say, "This such an anti-American bill, this is something King George III would have done."

Now that DHS has established both a list and a lexicon for "extremists," it looks to Congress to confer upon it police-state-style powers through which these individuals may be disarmed and eventually done away with. Rep. Peter King is accommodating this goal with H.R. 2159.

Let me ask a reasonable question: how long does anyone think it would be, after being profiled by DHS and denied the lawful purchase of firearms, that those same people would be subjected to gun confiscation? And how long do you think it would be before DHS began profiling more and more groups of people, thus subjecting them to gun confiscation?

This was exactly the strategy employed by Adolf Hitler. The Jews were the first people denied their civil rights--especially the right to own and possess firearms. Of course, after disarming Jews, the rest of the German citizenry was likewise disarmed. And we all know where that led.

I'm not sure how many of the American people realize that it was the attempted confiscation of the colonialists' cache of arms in Concord, Massachusetts, that started America's War for Independence. Yes, my friends, it was attempted gun confiscation that triggered (pun intended) the "shot heard 'round the world." And now it would appear that, once again, a central government is on the verge of trying to deny the American people their right to keep and bear arms.

I am told that as of 2004, 50% of the adults in the United States own one or more firearms, totaling some 270 million privately owned firearms nationwide. I would venture to say that the vast majority of these gun owners would find themselves matching the DHS profile of a potential "extremist." I wonder how many gun owners realize the way they are now being targeted by their government, and just how serious--and how close--the threat of gun confiscation has become?

Mystery of message in a bottle found at Auschwitz solved

If one doubts the intention of the elitists in government today to deny the American people their right to keep and bear arms, consider what former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is purported to have said just a couple of weeks ago. Kissinger attended a high-level meeting with Russian President Medvedev that also included former Secretaries of State James Baker and George Shultz; former Secretary of Defense William Perry; and former Senator Sam Nunn. Included in the discussions was Kissinger's assertion that the American people were now ready to accept a "New Global Order." He is also reported to have told Medvedev, "By September we'll have confiscated all privately owned guns so it really doesn't matter what we do, we'll still be in charge." (Even though the national news media has not reported this statement, the Internet is abuzz with Kissinger having said it. Whether Kissinger actually made that statement or not, he, and rest of his ilk, have repeatedly called for a New World Order, in which there will be no constitutional protection for the right to keep and bear arms.)

This leads to a very serious question: how many of America's gun owners would allow their government to deny them gun ownership? Further, how many would passively sit back and allow their guns to be confiscated?

As humbly and meekly as I know how to say it: as for me and my house, gun confiscation is the one act of tyranny that crosses the line; debate, discourse, discussion, and peaceful dissent cease and desist at that point. I say again, it is getting very serious now.

Mom wrongly attacked by a K-9 police dog

FORT WAYNE, Ind., (WANE) -- - Days after a Fort Wayne mom was wrongly attacked by a police dog, the department’s admitting that officer error is to blame.

The incident happened Thursday evening in the 3000 block of Euclid Avenue on the city’s south side.

A police pursuit for drive-by suspects ended with the police K-9 confusing a young mother for a bad guy.

“She was the victim, at the wrong place at the wrong time,” says Ft. Wayne Police K-9 trainer Kevin Weber.

The victim was Tamara West. She heard all the sirens and commotions and ran to pick up her two-year-old who was playing in the front yard.

That was moments after a K-9 officer pulled up on the scene and deployed his dog to help in the arrest.

West recalls, “When the dog came out, [the officer] just opened the door and kept running toward where the house was! Well, the dog came toward my baby.”

Weber explains, “The dog runs run 40 miles per hour, so it took less than three seconds for him to go, and by that time, the dog grabbed Ms. West on the buttocks area, the thigh.”

Raw Video: East Austin Shooting/ Riot Scene

Riots and protests surrounding a police shooting in East Austin lead the chief of police to ask for more patience and respect from the community.

Officer Leonardo Quintana shot and killed 18-year-old Nathan Sanders Monday morning at the Walnut Creek Apartments.

Community leaders and protestors say they want more answers from police surrounding the fatal shooting.

But Chief Art Acevedo would not answer any questions about the investigation on Tuesday. Instead, he’s asking everyone to be patient and stop passing judgment on his officers until all the facts are known.

"This behavior is unacceptable,” said Victoria Cloud, as she protested outside Austin Police headquarters. “Anytime the police behave in this way, it’s our responsibility to make them immediately accountable.”

NATO Awards Contract for mobile incinerators

A Burlington company is winning international attention.

Eco Waste Solutions has been awarded a 4.5 million dollar contract to supply NATO with containerized incineration packages.

The mobile incinerators will be designed and built at the comapny's Harvester Road location and deployed, along with NATO troops, to locations around the globe.

Each of the mobile incineration systems can process the amount of waste generated each day by a 500 person unit.

Eco Waste Solutions President Steve Meldrum says the company's incineration systems will meet the world's strictest air pollution and emissions monitoring standards.

He hopes to represent the new face of Canadian business, adding that it's not lost on him that their plant was previously home to an auto parts manufacturer.

WHO Defends Higher Alert
Bacteria Create Aquatic Superbugs In Waste Treatment Plants

The World Health Organisation has defended its decision to raise the global pandemic alarm for swine flu as Cuba, Thailand and Finland confirmed their first cases of the virus. The global health body's acting Assistant Director-General Keiji Fukuda insisted the outbreak would have been more severe if the WHO had not raised its pandemic alert two weeks ago. 'If countries had not been thinking about what to do in this kind of situation, the fact is we would have had much more confusion,' Mr Fukuda said.'In many ways, the severity would have been greater.' The WHO raised its alert to five on a scale of six two weeks ago, signalling that a pandemic was 'imminent' after Mexico and the United States showed sustained local transmission of the influenza A(H1N1) virus. The alert prompted countries to take specific measures, including looking at distribution of anti-viral drugs or issuing travel advice at airports.

Genetically Modified Corn To Vaccinate You While Eating Breakfast
Can diseases be warded off by eating GMO corn? Scientists are working to find out. How about a little vaccine with your corn on the cob? I’m wondering if there is going to be any room left for actual corn in corn once scientists get done adding pesticides, fertilizers and now possibly vaccines to the genetic makeup of corn. Meat & Poultry reports that researchers at Iowa State University are putting vaccine into corn. The goal is to put the vaccine into the corn that the pigs will eat to help stop diseases like swine flu from happening. “We're trying to figure out which genes from the swine influenza virus to incorporate into corn so those genes, when expressed, would produce protein," said Hank Harris, professor in animal science and one of the researchers on the project. "When the pig consumes that corn, it would serve as a vaccine." The goal, if things go well, is to have this vaccinated corn available in 5-7 years. Tests need to be done to make sure that the vaccines will work when given to the pigs orally through the corn. Pigs aren’t the only ones who could “benefit” from this genetically altered corn. According to the researchers, the corn vaccine would also work in humans when they eat corn or even corn flakes, corn chips, tortillas or anything that contains corn, Harris said.

More Evidence that Mandatory HD TV Conversion is a Set Up for Mind Control Psychotronics

A. True Ott PhD
January 26, 2009

To begin with, take 10 minutes and watch this 60 Minutes Video:
Leslie Stahl makes some very interesting comments on the morality and ethics of mind-control.
Here are mine:
1. The technology called FMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance) is OLD and ARCHAIC actually. Mengele and others were "reading" brain waves via magnetic resonance graphing in the early 70's. Boston-Logan Airport is already using NEW light-wave beams to scan AND READ air traveler's INTENTIONS before they board the planes.
2. The GERMAN individual Stahl interviewed was very HESITANT TO REVEAL exactly WHO HAD THE MIND-READING TECHNOLOGY TODAY. Again, just look at the U.S. PATENTS issued in the last decade to realize the height and breadth of the mind-control explosion - and keep in mind that patents are usually applied for AFTER the technology has been proven to be commercially viable via working models. ---.
3. The FMRI "computer" that "reads the mind" is just one side of the coin. IT IS MUCH, MUCH EASIER TO PRODUCE EMOTIONS AND IMPULSES INTO the brain than to actually READ the brain via computer programs.
4. This technology needs much more bandwidth space than is currently provided by ANALOG SIGNALS in order to be implemented. Thus the need to switch to DIGITAL SIGNALS EXCLUSIVELY.
6. IS HOMELAND SECURITY THE "WRONG HANDS"?? Why is this just now beginning to be reported by such news programs as "60 Minutes"?
Read this patent abstract, and then read my expose on DIGITAL TV once again in the context of Stahl's report.

TITLE: Nervous System Manipulation by EM Fields from Monitors

Issued to: Loos, Hendricus

Abstract: Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near 1/2 Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and HD TV screens, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or DIGITAL TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be embedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity.

The George Washington Masonic National Memorial

In the 30 years between the start of the 20th Century and the commencement of the Great Depression, American Freemasons spared no expense in turning their dreams and goals into tangible edifices that survive to this day, testament to the high regard with which Freemasons of that era held the Masonic craft. With a name that is nearly as long as the building is tall, The George Washington Masonic National Memorial at Alexandria, Virginia, is one such fine example of the Masonic pride that the Fraternity permanently carved upon the American landscape during those early decades of the 20th Century. Designs Upon A Trestle Board. On February 22nd, 1910 a number of Masons from several American jurisdictions met at Alexandria, Virginia to discuss the possibility and feasibility of erecting a memorial to George Washington the Freemason...

History has it that the great rulers of Canaan, the ancient land of Israel, were all men. But a recent dig conducted by Tel Aviv University (TAU) archaeologists at Tel Beth-Shemesh has uncovered possible evidence of a mysterious female ruler.

Prof. Shlomo Bunimovitz and Dr. Zvi Lederman of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Civilizations have uncovered an unusual ceramic plaque of a goddess in male dress, suggesting that a mighty female "king" may have ruled the city. If true, they say, the plaque would depict the only known female ruler of the region.

The plaque itself depicts a figure dressed as royal male figures and deities once appeared in Egyptian and Canaanite art. The figure's hairstyle, though, is womanly and its bent arms are holding lotus flowers - attributes given to women. This plaque, art historians suggest, may be an artistic representation of the "Mistress of the Lionesses," a female Canaanite ruler who was known to have sent distress letters to the Pharaoh in Egypt reporting unrest and destruction in her kingdom.

"We took this finding to an art historian who confirmed our hypothesis that the figure was a female," says Lederman. "Obviously something very different was happening in this city. We may have found the 'Mistress of the Lionesses' who'd been sending letters from Canaan to Egypt. The destruction we uncovered at the site last summer, along with the plaque, may just be the key to the puzzle."

A female ruler in pre-Exodus Canaan
Around 1350 BCE, there was unrest in the region. Canaanite kings conveyed their fears via clay tablet letters to the Pharaoh in Egypt, requesting military help. But among all the correspondence by kings were two rare letters that stuck out among the 382 el-Amarna tablets uncovered a few decades ago by Egyptian farmers.

The two letters came from a "Mistress of the Lionesses" in Canaan. She wrote that bands of rough people and rebels had entered the region, and that her city might not be safe. Because the el-Amarna tablets were found in Egypt rather than Canaan, historians have tried to trace the origin of the tablets.

"The big question became, 'What city did she rule?'" say Lederman and Bunimovitz. The archaeologists believe that she ruled as king (rather than "queen," which at the time described the wife of a male king) over a city of about 1,500 residents. A few years ago, Prof. Nadav Naaman, also of TAU, suggested that she might have ruled the city of Beth Shemesh, but there has been no proof until now.

"The city had been violently destroyed, in a way we rarely see in archaeology," says Bunimovitz, who points to many exotic finds buried under the destruction, including an Egyptian royal seal, bronze arrowheads and complete large storage vessels. They suggest a large and important city-state, well enmeshed within East Mediterranean geo-political and economic networks.

Time for a new interpretation of biblical history?

Tel Aviv University archaeologists say that the new finds might turn the interpretation of pre-biblical history on its head. The people of the time were pagans who had a very elaborate religious system.

"It was a very well-to-do city," says Lederman. "Strangely, such extensive destruction, like what we found in our most recent dig, is a great joy for archaeologists because people would not have had time to take their belongings. They left everything in their houses. The site is loaded with finds," he says, adding that the expensive items found in the recent level points to it as one of the most important inland Canaanite cities.

The discovery of the plaque, and the evidence of destruction recorded in the el-Amarna tablets, could confirm that the woman depicted in the figurine was the mysterious "Mistress of the Lionesses" and ruled Canaanite Beth Shemesh. "There is no evidence of other females ruling a major city in this capacity," Lederman and Bunimovitz say. "She is the only one. We really hope to find out more about her this summer."
