I find myself suddenly in a dark pit, illuminated only by scattered fires and glowing lava pools. I fumble with my phone, but there are no bars. I start recording…
Me: Wow, it’s hot! And what is that smell?
The fiery pit is large and barren of life. Despite the overwhelming heat, the center of the pit appears to be frozen and covered in ice.
I search through the dense, noxious vapors when suddenly I am startled by an old, filthy, bent, solitary man in rags standing in a mist and staring upwards towards the center of the pit.
Old man: The odor is a mix of sulfur and decomposition. And it’s always hot in Hell.
His descriptions seem melodramatic, but they certainly fit. I slowly work my way towards the wretched figure.
Me: Who are you?
Old man: I am the great Greek philosopher, Plato.
Out of courtesy and pity, I attempt to conceal my skepticism. I smile at the old man, but he continues to look away.
Me: If you are now in Hell, then I’m not sure you were such a great philosopher when you were alive.
Momentarily irritated by my comment, Plato continues in a practiced, haughty tone.
Plato: Transformed into icy granite, I am frozen for eternity with my gaze fixed upon my master.
I look around and see no one else in view.
Me: Who is your master and where is he? I don’t see anyone else here but you and me.
Surprised by my questions, Plato indignantly responds with a booming, though trembling voice.
Plato: My master is none other than Lucifer himself! Bow to his magnificent beauty as he towers before us with majesty and power in the center of this very pit.
I carefully follow the old man’s gaze towards the frozen center of the pit. It is empty, save for a large pool of ice.
Me: Sir, you are mistaken. There is no one else here in this Godforsaken place besides you and me.
Plato is unsurprised.
Plato: You lack discernment.
I won’t argue with him there, but I cannot help but begin to question his grasp on reality.
Me: You are also not made of stone. Here, let me help you sit.
I step towards the miserable figure when he suddenly erupts, halting my progress.
Plato: No! It is you who are wrong! Do you even know what today is?
Me: It’s November 6, 2012, Election Day in my country.
Plato: By the numbers it is 11:6, a day for the occult invocation of the uncompleted Tower of Babel. The old order was torn down on 9/11/01 — 9/11 is an inversion of 11:6 — the Tower was completed anew on 1/4/10 and the final chapter before the birth of the New Order starts today, 23 days after my master fell to Earth a second time.
Numbers. The occult loves numbers like 2,717, the secret height of the Burj Khalifa, which I had derived directly from the proportions of the Georgia Guidestones months before the Burj’s true height was publicly known. 2,717, the first Greek number skipped in Strong’s Numbers for the New Testament, a number that some say foreshadows the Antichrist, a number that corresponds to “make waste” or “to be made desolate” in the Strong’s Hebrew Concordance.
One of the most diabolical examples of Georgia Guidestones numerology involves the Magnitude 9.0 Tōhoku, Japan, earthquake that claimed nearly 16,000 lives. This massive disaster struck Japan on March 11, 2011, exactly 11,311 days after the Georgia Guidestones monument was officially completed on March 22, 1980. The number “11,311″ in day/month/year format (“little endian,” which is most commonly used around the world) or year/month/day format (“big endian,” which is used by the military and also in Japan) can be written 11/3/11. This corresponds to March 11, 2011, the actual date of the earthquake.
Furthermore, the earthquake occurred exactly 9 years, 6 months after 9/11/2001. Treating these dates as vectors and adding them together we get: [ 9, 11, 1 ] + [ 3, 11, 11 ] = [ 12, 22, 12 ] or December 22, 2012, the day after the end of the Mayan calender, or, more appropriately, the first day of a new age.
However, regarding the old man’s last assertion, try as I might, I cannot contain my laughter.
Me: Are you saying that Felix Baumgartner is Satan?
Plato: Fool! Ceremonies on the mortal plane open portals within the spiritual realm. You claim to be an expert on the Georgia Guidestones, so how many days will it be since the day the monument was completed until December 21, 2012, the Mayan Day of Destruction?
I’m startled that he seems to know who I am.
Me: It would take me a few minutes to figure that out with no computer here. My phone has no signal…
Plato: You should already know the answer. It’s 11,962 days. Does that number look familiar to you?
Me: No. Let me think; I have an app on my phone that might help. 11,962 is an unusual number since it has only two prime factors: 2 and 5,981. Why should I know more about it?
Plato: Your country uses many codes, this is one of them.
Me: Codes? Yes, it does look like a Zip Code, but I have no idea what community it corresponds to.
Plato: It is the code for Sagaponack, New York.
Me: Really? I recall Sagaponack was listed as the most expensive small town in the country. The median house price in Sagaponack is over $4-million! I think Jimmy Fallon lives there among the 500 or so residents; it’s a tiny place.
Me: Jimmy Fallon. He is a comedian who appears in credit card commercials trying to convince a baby to take money. The baby keeps throwing the money back in his face.
Plato laughs uncontrollably for several seconds before recovering himself.
Plato: And you still do not understand? You are being mocked, ridiculed! That baby has more wisdom than you!
Me: I guess I do not understand. Please explain.
Plato: Sagaponack is the home of Lloyd Blankfein…
I turn white and my stomach tightens.
Me: You mean the CEO and Chairman of Goldman Sachs?
Is December 21, 2012, a financial doomsday that will bring down the world’s nations, or does it have some other significance? You need to answer that question yourself. What I will tell you is that The Georgia Guidestones, 9/11, the Burj Khalifa, Ted Turner, Goldman Sachs, the Mahdi, today’s elections, earthquakes, storms, riots and the war to come are all part of the same ceremony that balance on the fulcrum that is the date December 21, 2012. And it is all made possible through an illusion. Your money holds no value, but its illusion of value has been maintained by your world’s insatiable love for base, material things.
The moneychangers are the rulers of your world and now they plan to bring it all down through a final series of Grand Illusions. They will wipe the Earth clean, disposing of billions of human lives, and, using the benefits of high technology, erect a New World Order for their master, Lucifer. This New World Order is a society I designed thousands of years ago; I am the architect.
My head spins with this information. It is hard to dispel, but I don’t want to believe it. If all he says is true, then a supreme irony is that at least part of the Georgia Guidestones project was not funded by money, but rather paid for with gold. Last summer, my wife contacted the publisher of Common Sense Renewed, the companion book for the monument. The aging publisher told her that the book was paid for anonymously using South African Krugerrands, gold bullion coins. More ironically, the publishing company is located in Mason City, Iowa, a town founded by Freemasons.
I reach out my right hand to help the old man sit, but I slip on the icy ground and grab his arm for support. His arm is frigid and hard and unyielding like rock. I look at his face closely for the first time and his eyes are gone, clawed from their sockets. The life I saw in him has vanished and his form has been replaced by a crudely hewn granite statue.
I step back in terror when I am suddenly gripped with pain in my right hand. The color drains from it and I can no longer move my fingers. Out of the corner of my eye, I notice a massive figure looming overhead. Unmistakeably, it’s winged Lucifer, frozen in the center of Hell.
But he’s melting and his huge head pivots towards me. I recognize him! How could I be so stupid not to have known sooner? I must warn everyone before it’s too late!
But I can’t move. My feet have turned to stone as has most of my body. I only have a few more seconds before I’m completely rendered in granite. Maybe if I shout loudly enough, someone will hear me.
Me: Lucifer walks the Earth again! His name is…

Many of us inside the computer industry were highly skeptical of Facebook’s IPO. I warned those near me that Facebook (NASDAQ FB) was grossly overpriced and would crash so hard, so fast that it might serve as a bullet in the head for the struggling global economy. It’s not just that Facebook’s market cap has sunk from $100-billion to $48-billion since the May 17th IPO, a short three months, but that Facebook was loudly trumpeted as the “face” of a recovering American economy.
Consequently, as Facebook tumbles, so falls public confidence in an improving U.S. economy.
Given the size and importance of Facebook, it is increasingly likely that the American Government will intercede to bail out the collapsing tech company. With Facebook’s earliest investor, Peter Theil, dumping most of his shares last week, the bailout might be at hand very soon.
Interestingly, while Facebook’s growing popularity is losing steam almost as fast as its stock price, several mainstream articles have appeared recently positing that a Facebook presence might soon become required by employers. UK’s DailMail went as far as to write, “Is not joining Facebook a sign you’re a psychopath? Some employers and psychologists say staying away from social media is ‘suspicious’.”
Additionally, last March a controversy erupted after media reports of a few employers who began requiring Facebook login IDs and passwords from job applicants and even current current employees for screening and monitoring purposes. Schools and universities were also cited for demanding full Facebook access from students, prospective or current.
With the Feds directly overseeing Facebook, the Government could generate reports for each Facebook user, preserving personal details while scoring the user across various vectors of trustworthiness. In a real sense, the U.S. Government would serve as a Big Brother who would vouch for you.
Two years ago we wrote that TSA’s growing intrusiveness in airports might be a deliberate attempt by the U.S. Government to soften public resistance against a National ID initiative. Perhaps the plan is to use Facebook for that system. With Homeland Security oversight after a Government takeover, Facebook might serve as the basis of a comprehensive and invasive national identification registry.
This is the second installment of a series of informal blog posts about these eminently important topics. You can read the first post here.
From all available scientific information, Comet Elenin is nothing special. In fact, it looks to be a boring, barely observable fizzy little conglomeration of rock and ice hurtling quickly through the inner solar system before vanishing beyond Pluto for another 11,800 years.
Certainly, Comet Elenin has not demonstrated any qualities that warrant the gushing torrent of panic that has flooded the Internet since the little comet’s official discovery last December 10th.
But one strange bit of evidence on the flip side of a bill of cash is so unambiguous that I have to admit that Comet Elenin might be worth an ocean of anxiety after all.
Towards the end of the last century, Switzerland distributed a peculiar ten Franc bill that honored the celebrated physicist, mathematician and defender of Christianity, Leonard Euler. The front of the bill looks typical of European denominations of the time, with Euler’s grinning mug offset to the right and a variety of esoteric, presumably anti-counterfeiting markings sprinkled elsewhere. Here’s an image of the front side of the note courtesy of Wikipedia.
10 Franc Swiss note honoring Leonard Euler
However, like the rapidly shrinking U.S. One Dollar slip of fiat currency, the obverse side is odd and contains much more information than first meets the eye. The back of the Euler note is dominated by a diagram of the Solar System with a comet streaking through it. That alone is not really peculiar because Euler drew a chart quite similar to it. However, the positions of the planets are very interesting. Take a look at this image that came from the University of Princeton.
The back of the Euler note
A small part of the Comet Elenin hysteria was discussion about how the planets in the diagram seem to conform with the date September 26, 2011, the very day that Elenin passes between the Earth and the Sun (although a little above the ecliptic). Given how totally wrong the vast majority of insane Comet Elenin jabber has been, I didn’t expect to find much correspondence with reality until I overlaid the September 26 orbital projections of the planets from the JPL Solar System simulator onto the Swiss bill. Take a look:
JPL Solar System projection over the Euler note
The alignments for Mercury through Mars are spot on. While it looks like Saturn and Jupiter are out of place, the orbits on the bill are drawn close to scale and the two outer orbits align closely to the asteroid belt and Jupiter. Assuming the outer planet is actually Jupiter instead of Saturn, the alignment is only a degree or two off. (Oddly, the moon is roughly 180 degrees out of place, though.)
I knew immediately that such alignments were very rare, but I wanted to quantify the period between such alignments so I wrote an orbital simulation. To my amazement, it takes about 1,696,039 years for the planets to reach the depicted positions within a margin of error of +-10% for each planet! However, the planets on the back of the Euler note are far more precisely oriented than that.
What this means is that the back of the Euler banknote is an intentional encoding for the date September 26, 2011. Stranger still, it means that the comet depicted on this Swiss note designed decades ago is none other than Elenin, which officially was discovered only last December!
So innocuous, almost invisible Comet Elenin is apparently the return of a celestial body known about from at least the time that the Swiss Euler bill was designed. However, tiny little Comet Elenin would have been far outside the orbit of Pluto even during the late 20th Century where it would be well beyond the ability of any instrument to detect.
This suggests that Elenin was charted long, long ago. Current orbital estimates for Comet Elenin are around 11,800 years meaning that the last time it passed by earth, the eerie, staggeringly ancient Turkish civilization of Göbekli Tepe may have witnessed it. But few ancient civilizations were advanced enough to be able to predict a comet’s return. The Maya produced highly accurate eclipse prediction and planetary orbital projection data, but their civilization came about 10,000 years too late for puny little Elenin.
Frankly, this is both astounding and unsettling. What pushes this information to the alarming level is the synchronicity of Comet Elenin with the Georgia Guidestones-Burj Khalifa-Mahdi-World War III evidence pointing to a global conflagration erupting within weeks and orchestrated by a small cabal of super-rich occultist lunatics.
While wimpy Comet Elenin appears to pose no direct threat to earth, it just might be the occult starting gun for Armageddon.

Two different European earthquake monitoring sites (here and here) reported an 8.4 earthquake deep inside the Libyan desert about 30 miles southeast of Sinawin on May 19. The epicenter was approximately 120 miles south of the Mediterranean coast and roughly 200 miles southwest of Tripoli. Here are the earthquake details:

Is this earthquake being censored? If so, was it a subterranean detonation in a remote desert location to safely demonstrate Libya’s nuclear capabilities to its Western attackers? The West would certainly want to contain that information to prevent widespread panic since a 50 megaton nuke could utterly wipe out an entire metropolis. Was the earthquake the result of a NATO attack? Or was the earthquake a real, natural event or simply a strange glitch on a pair of seismic instruments?
The Russian news service RT reports that besieged Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was targeted by Western powers not for humanitarian reasons or even for oil. Instead, Gaddafi is in NATO’s crosshairs because of his push to abandon the U.S. dollar to unite Africa and Muslim countries with a gold-backed currency.
“It’s one of these things that you have to plan almost in secret, because as soon as you say you’re going to change over from the dollar to something else, you’re going to be targeted,” says Ministry of Peace founder Dr James Thring. “There were two conferences on this, in 1986 and 2000, organized by Gaddafi. Everybody was interested, most countries in Africa were keen.”
Gaddafi did not give up. In the months leading up to the military intervention, he called on African and Muslim nations to join together to create this new currency that would rival the dollar and euro. They would sell oil and other resources around the world only for gold dinars.
It is an idea that would shift the economic balance of the world.
While the struggling U.S. Dollar has rebounded strongly with the announcement of Osama bin Laden’s assassination, precedence for this theory comes from Iraq which was invaded soon after Saddam Hussein announced that Iraqi oil would be traded in euros, not dollars.
Despite recent demonization in Western media, Gaddfi is widely respected throughout the African continent. For example, in 2008 over 200 traditional African rulers and kings conferred upon Muammar Gaddafi the title “King of Kings of Africa.”
Sixty-six years after the official announcement of Adolf Hitler’s death, the President of the United States celebrated the successful assassination of Osama bin Laden on the Pagan holiday of Maypole day.
Ignoring the guilt or innocence of Osama bin Laden or whether or not he actually died years ago as some allege, deliberately slaying a man without a trial for a crime that he officially denied is wrong.
America, your heart has been turned. Not only do we officially accept the common application of torture, but now we celebrate when our government deliberately kills a specific person only on a suspicion of guilt.
Dear reader, God forbid that our government should ever suspect you similarly.
God, please forgive our nation’s people. We have turned away from Christ.
World famous Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass resigned from his post today as Egypt’s antiquities chief. Mercurial and imperial but also entertaining and sometimes compassionate, Hawass has been the face of Egyptian archaeology for many years.
Hawass is featured on the History Channel’s controversial reality series Chasing Mummies. Critics claim the show is scripted and Hawass is unlikeable. While scenes of Hawass’ explosive temper and pharaonic personality depict a man bordering on insanity, the viewer nevertheless also witnesses events that demonstrate Hawass’ surprising tenacity, toughness and dedication to his job.
A cabinet member of deposed President Hosni Mubarak, Hawass resigned amid accusations by some of smuggling antiquities.
CNBC is reporting that oil prices “tumbled” today based upon unconfirmed rumors claiming that besieged Libyan strongman, Muammar Gaddafi, has been shot and killed. However, an anonymous, senior U.S. government official denied reports that Ghadafi’s 41-year rein has been brutally halted.
Asked if Washington had reason to believe that Gaddafi, who is seeking to crush protests against his 41-year rule in the oil-exporting North African nation, was dead, the U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: “No.”

– The Georgia Guidestones
This evening I will appear on the season finale of the History Channel’s new series Brad Meltzer’s Decoded. I was interviewed for that program to discuss my findings on the Georgia Guidestones monument located in Elbert County, Georgia.
I will briefly summarize my research in this article. For more background information on the Georgia Guidestones, see my original piece here.
In November, 2009, I uncovered incontrovertible evidence linking the Georgia Guidestones to the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world completed last year and nearly 30 years after the Guidestones were erected. This secret foreshadowing of the remarkable tower in Dubai stunned me and led me to dig much deeper into the meaning of the strange Georgia monument modeled after Stonehenge.
The Georgia Guidestones
It is immediately evident to even the most casual observer possessing only rudimentary understanding of modern occult beliefs that the Georgia Guidestones is the product of theosophy, a term that encompasses the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Alice Bailey’s New Age movement and overtly Satanic cults inspired by Aleister Crowley.
It is written hieroglyphically with numbers and images; and the Apostle often appeals to the intelligence of the Initiated. “Let him who hath knowledge, understand! Let him who understands, calculate!” he often says, after an allegory or the mention of a number.
– Albert Pike, Morals and dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
Recognizing the theosophical inspiration for the Georgia Guidestones, I knew that numerological messages might be hidden within the design of the monument since numerology is very important to theosophists. Given that much of the monument was built by proxy – the mysterious designer, “R.C. Christian,” provided the metric dimensions for the monument, the specifications of its astrological features, a model and a list of his ten guidelines for a post-apocalyptic world – it was most likely that messages would be encoded into the dimensions or raw proportions of the Georgia Guidestones component stone slabs.
The stories surrounding the origins of the Georgia Guidestones are murky and inconsistent, but one thing that is not in dispute is that R.C. Christian specified the dimensions of the Guidestone slabs in meters, which was an oddity in Georgia back in 1979 when he met with Joe Fendley, Sr., the 32-degree Freemason who owned the granite finishing company that eventually built the monument. The diagram below illustrates the metric dimensions (and resulting proportions) specified by R.C. Christian for each of the monument’s three component groups.
Georgia Guidestones measurements
Note that taking measurements of the slabs by hand is tricky due to their rough-hewn, rock-pitched surfaces formed by men bashing them into shape with sledgehammers. R.C. Christian specified this primitive finish to provide the monument with an ancient appearance. Fortunately, R.C. Christian disclosed the two primary metric dimensions of the four Guidestones in his book Common Sense Renewed. Each Guidestone was designed to be two meters wide by five meters tall. The remaining metric dimensions of the various Georgia Guidestones components are then evident by examination of the English unit measurements provided at the site. Additionally, we carefully measured the thickness of the English language Guidestone by hand and it was precisely 0.5 meters from finished edge to finished edge.
The metric measurements specified by R.C. Christian are then:
Capstone: 0.5m x 2m x 3m
Center “Gnomen” stone: 0.5m x 1m x 5m
Each of the four Guidestones: 0.5m x 2m x 5m
The corresponding proportions then become:
Capstone: 1 : 4 : 6
Center “Gnomen” stone: 1 : 2 : 10
Each of the four Guidestones: 1 : 4 : 10
If any component would have an encoded numerological message then it would be the four Guidestones. Each of the Guidestones has the proportion of 1:4:10, which immediately brought to mind the date January 4, 2010. I then discovered that the Burj Dubai would be opened on that date. The Burj Dubai, now called the Burj Khalifa, is by far the tallest building in the world and it strongly resembles Babylonian ziggurats, the building style that many believe was used for the Tower of Babel.
The Burj Dubai (now called the Burj Khalifa)
We also discovered that the former emir of Dubai, Sheik Maktoum bin Rashad al Maktoum, died unexpected during an Australian trip on January 4, 2006 (1/4/6) which corresponds to the proportions of the Capstone of the Georgia Guidestones (1:4:6). The death of Sheik Maktoum led to the ascendency of his brother, Sheik Mohammed, to become ruler of Dubai. Sheik Mohammed is directly responsible for the construction of the Burj Dubai, now called the Burj Khalifa. Sheik Mohammed’s building spree was a pursuit that nearly drove Dubai into receivership before being bailed out by Sheik Khalifa, the leader of neighboring Abu Dhabi.
Still, while those two connections were extraordinary, they were not beyond chance, so I looked for an indisputable connection between the two constructions. The most significant aspect of the Burj Dubai, the tallest building in the world by over 1,000 feet, was its soaring height, so I tried to see if the height of the tower were also encoded into the Georgia Guidestones.
For numerology to carry any weight, the messages have to be encoded in obvious ways. The most obvious way to encode the height of the Burj Khalifa is by combining the proportions of the three component groups. I did this as follows:
Capstone: 1 + 4 + 6 = 11
Center “Gnomen” stone: 1 + 2 + 10 = 13
Each Guidestone: 1 + 4 + 10 = 15, but there are four Guidestones so taking this into account: 1 + 4 + 10 + 4 = 19
Oddly enough, the three derived numbers are all prime. Multiplying them together, I got:
11 x 13 x 19 = 2,717
I initially derived this number in November, 2009, and all sources at that time claimed the height of the Burj Dubai was only 2,684 feet. Most damningly, the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records, which we purchased in late November, also listed the tower’s height at 2,684 feet, some ten meters short of the number I derived.
Because any encoded numerological message had to be “hidden in plain sight” for it to have any meaning, I resolved myself at that time to the fact that the height of the Burj Dubai was not encoded into the Georgia Guidestones and that any connection between that strange monument and the Burj Dubai was tenuous.
However, on January 4, 2010, Sheik Mohammed had a surprise for the world: the actual height of the tower, renamed on that day as the “Burj Khalifa” in honor of the sheik who bailed out Dubai from bankruptcy only a few days earlier, was not 2,684 feet as had been widely believed, but was actually 2,717 feet, the exact value I had derived from the Georgia Guidestones over a month earlier!
Moreover, 11, 13 and 19 are the prime factors of 2,717, a very special set of numbers that simply constitute another way of writing “2,717.”
Combined with the two other connections to the Burj Khalifa mentioned earlier, there is no doubt that the Georgia Guidestones was designed with specific numerological links pointing directly to the Burj Khalifa. Again, those three links are as follows:
1. The capstone points to the unexpected death of Dubai’s Emir, Sheik Maktoum, on January 4, 2006.
2. The Guidestones contain the encoded date, January 4, 2010, the completion date of the Burj Khalifa.
3. The exact height of the Burj Khalifa, 2,717 feet, is encoded in an obvious fashion within the proportions of the Georgia Guidestone components.
The now indisputable connection between the two enigmatic structures provided me with motivation to understand their symbolic meaning along with the intentions of the powerful people who built them.
You might have noticed that I did not provide the significance of the proportions of the Gnomen Stone, the tall, thin central slab of the monument. Its proportions are 1:2:10 which sum to be 13. The number “13” is specifically significant when combined with the fact that the pseudonym for the monument’s designer was “R.C. Christian,” a transparent claim by him to be a follower or even an incarnation of Christian Rosenkreuz (Rosy Cross), the founder of Rosicrucianism who some claim has appeared throughout the centuries, perhaps most notably as the Count of St. Germaine, one of the fomenters of the French Revolution.
The central pillar of the Georgia Guidestones is a representation in granite of the number “13,” the number that signifies the “Hidden Hand” of the Rosicrucians. The Rosicrucians identify with this number because, they claim, it takes 12 identical spheres to completely conceal a thirteenth. The 12 outer spheres represent the visible world, while the inner thirteenth sphere signifies the “Hidden Hand” of the Rosicrucians working in secret to manipulate events in our history.
So the “13” encoded into the central Gnomen Stone is a calling card of the Rosicrucians.
A Rosicrucian Emblem
The symbolic meaning of the Burj Khalifa is unambiguous: it is the completion of the second Tower of Babel, a pursuit the Rosicrucians, Freemasons and their ilk have sought for millennia.
Understand at this point that Rosicrucians are an ill defined group. They are very secretive and it is unclear which formal organization, if any, is the legitimate heir to the Rosicrucian legacy.
Most people today who identify themselves as Rosicrucians are not much more than avid Dungeons & Dragons role-playing fans who like pretending to be modern-day wizards as grownups. Moreover, the various groups and chapters snipe at each other, refuting the legitimacy of other Rosicrucians.
However, one person who was apparently a bona fide Rosicrucian initiate was Sirhan Sirhan, the deranged man who was convicted for killing U.S. Senator and Presidential candidate Robert Kennedy. Today, Sirhan Sirhan is the poster child for “mind control,” a concept explored in the infamous CIA MK-Ultra experiments and an idea popularized in the 1959 motion picture The Manchurian Candidate (and remade in 2004).
A Rosicrucian: the convicted murderer Sirhan Sirhan
I have spent time researching the Rosicrucians in an attempt to better understand their connection to the Georgia Guidestones. While I do not believe all of these ideas, I share them with you so that you have in your hands some of the more well-known ideas surrounding this mysterious cult.
Interestingly, the Rosicrucians have been accused of practicing a form of mind control called “assumption” where members of the order are told to take over the minds of world leaders and other people to further Rosicrucian goals and obtain personal objectives.
More openly, Rosicrucians claim to practice magic. They brag that they can travel outside their bodies through a process called “astral projection.” In fact, they claim to not only travel to other planets through astral projection, but also to view the subatomic realm with this occult practice. However, they incorrectly maintained for years that all bodies in both domains were perfect spheres.
Historically, the Rosicrucians were probably formed in Germany by the remnants of the enigmatic and immensely powerful Knights Templar. The Rosicrucians are suspected in later establishing speculative Freemasonry in Scotland.
Francis Bacon and his wizard-like progenitor, John Dee, are both widely believed to have been Rosicrucians. Some accuse Bacon of formulating a vision of the New World as the “New Atlantis,” the reestablishment of the antiquarian society that holds an important position in theosophy.
The Rosicrucians are the preeminent theosophists, predating and directly influencing other modern occult groups. Theosophists claim that civilized mankind stretches much further back into antiquity than conventional archeologists and anthropologists accept. Before the Babylonians and Egyptians, a powerful country held sway over the world called Atlantis. With its destruction (described in various fantastic ways), survivors fled to the four corners of the globe and formed the Babylonian and Egyptian civilizations along with establishing civilizations eastwards into Iran and the Indus valley. These founders are called the “Aryans.”
Many people today still believe the Aryans existed. In fact, “Iran” essentially means “Land of the Aryans.” There is even some linguistic evidence supporting the existence of a mother “Aryan” language that gave birth to many different languages from Europe to the Indian Subcontinent.
They were white men, as we are, the superior race in intellect, in manliness, the governing race of the world, the conquering race of all other races. They called themselves Arya, the Aryans, the Warlike, or, some think, the Noble… we owe not one single truth, not one idea, in philosophy or religion to the Semitic race… it is a fact indisputable.
– Albert Pike, Lectures of the Arya
Hitler believed that Aryan decedents were still alive in his time. He and his Nazi brethren claimed the Aryans were the blond-haired, blue-eyed Europeans of Germany and Nordic countries who migrated westwardly from India and Iran. This is why Nazism has the strange confluence of Druidic and Hindu influences. In fact, the swastika was partially important to the Nazis because it was a symbol that connected the Druids, Hindu, Iranian and other ancient, purportedly Aryan cultures.

Central to theosophy is the belief that all modern religions are remnants of the true Aryan religion. Theosophists try to find analogues to Biblical figures in other religions. For some of them, God is Zeus, Satan or Lucifer is Poseidon, and particularly important, Enoch is Thoth or Hermes. In fact, this last relation is the foundation of Hermeticism, a particularly incisive angle on Theosophy that serves as the heart of Rosicrucianism.
LUCIFER, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish Souls? Doubt it not!
– Albert Pike, Morals and dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
Most theosophists are harmless, but the highest orders of Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism take a sinister position opposing Christianity. For them, God is an oppressive being who attempted to keep Adam and Eve ignorant and subservient in the Garden of Eden. Satan or Lucifer is viewed by them as a liberator and bringer of knowledge. These are the Luciferians.
Stand in awe of him, and sin not, speak his name with trembling … It is Satan who is the god of our planet and the only god…
– Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society
This veneration for Lucifer is captured in the number 322 used by the Masonic “Skull and Bones” command and control order. The Georgia Guidestones monument was officially completed on March 22 (3/22), 1980. “322” is important to the highest orders of Rosicrucians and Freemasons because it points to Genesis 3:22. Genesis 3:22-3:24 states:
22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
This is seen by Luciferians as an admission by God that man can become a god himself. It also demonstrates for them that God is unfair, cruel and jealous.

Accordingly, Luciferians have worked to overcome God for many centuries. Yet another passage in Genesis important for them is 11:6 where God remarks about King Nimrod’s attempt to construct the Tower of Babel:
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Genesis 11:6 is particularly important because it not only confirms for Luciferians yet again that man can become like God, but it also gives them a blueprint for doing so.
And this is where the Burj Khalifa comes in. Given its indisputable connection with the Georgia Guidestones, the Burj Khalifa is a modern Tower of Babel.
The Tower of Babel
The Burj Khalifa not only signifies a supreme Luciferian attempt to defy and defeat God, but the completion of the Tower is, for them, the beginning of a new age where man can become like God.
It should also be remarked that the 9/11 tragedies may have been carried out on that date for its occult significance. Note that 9/11 is an inversion of 11:6, denoting a destructive or chaotic event. In the occult, an upright symbol like a five-pointed star or pentagram represents order or constructive white magic while an inverted pentagram denotes chaos or black magic. Similarly, an upright cross indicates Christ while an inverted cross is associated with Satan (although diluted by its relationship with Peter’s crucifixion).

While it might sound fun to wield God’s powers, apotheosis, the transformation of man to god, is reserved for the chosen few while the rest of humanity is left in absolute bondage to worship and serve their new gods.
This new state of affairs is explicitly described in R.C. Christian’s Common Sense Renewed, a tome written to accompany and clarify the Georgia Guidestones. The book was delivered to every member of the U.S. Congress.
Robert Christian elaborates upon his Georgia Guidestones messages in his book Common Sense Renewed
R.C. Christian describes a “New Rational World Order” where an extraordinarily invasive form of eugenics is enforced by the State. Eugenics is the practice of human selective breeding. In Common Sense Renewed, eugenics is more than a tool to improve human stock, it is for shaping behavior and breaking the human spirit for serving the purposes of the State. The State will chose your mate and decide whether or not you can have children. Human breeding programs will ensure that behavior is favorably modified for the State. R.C. Christian compares this to dog breeding.
Health care is apportioned according to a person’s value to the State. The State’s godlike leaders receive the best life preserving, enhancing and extending technologies and techniques available, while the common man must make do with whatever the State sees fit for his lowly existence.
Employment is driven by the State’s need. Refusal of your job assignment or relocation will result in starvation and denial of health care.
The “New Rational World Order,” a term that R.C. Christian uses, is a global government composed of regional fiefdoms, but all working under the same, nightmarish, totalitarian rules.
And worst of all, R.C. Christian wants nearly everyone on the planet dead. With his global population target of only 500-million, nearly 6.5-billion of us will have to go.
And given the disturbing history of R.C. Christian’s cult, that population reduction will not be gradual, but sudden and orchestrated.
Some have maintained that the Georgia Guidestones were built to withstand an impending cataclysmic event that will decimate humanity. Given the decidedly unbenevolent attitude of Luciferian cultists, this is unlikely, but there is some evidence to support this belief.
Supposedly, B.F. Coggins, an extremely wealthy and powerful granite and real estate magnate in Elberton, Georgia, has in his company’s possession a Rosicrucian document describing the Georgia Guidestones monument as some sort of portal. The document admits that the monument contains hidden messages, but that only the enlightened will understand them. Moreover, the monument was designed for an activation event that will indicate the immediate threat of a global catastrophe so horrific that humanity will come close to losing all hope. The document reassures the survivors that they are loved and will be cared for. The tenor is such to evoke the impression that intercession will occur either supernaturally or by space aliens.
I deeply doubt the veracity of these claims, but if there is any possibility that they are true, the “activation event” can only mean that Polaris, the North Star, will drift out of the sighting hole drilled into the Gnomen stone. When I was last at the Guidestones this fall, Polaris was barely visible within the sighting hole. I had always assumed that this poor alignment was a result of workmanship flaws or settling of the monument over time. However, Wayne Mullenix, the man from whom R.C. Christian bought the land for the monument before deeding the parcel to Elbert County, told me that the foundation for the monument was spectacularly overbuilt, extending 20 feet in all directions away from the Georgia Guidestones and reaching all the way down to bedrock. Mr. Mullenix would know these construction details because he was responsible for building the steel reinforced foundation.
Given that the Guidestones foundation is so incredibly robust, it is unlikely that the misalignment of the Polaris Sighting Hole is due to settling. It also seems unlikely that the sighting hole would be improperly drilled given the remarkable care taken to ensure that the monument’s position would not change over time.
This benevolent account of the Georgia Guidestones also closely follows Hopi legends of a similar construction that their ancestors built in order to track polar alignment to warn of the coming Day of Purification, a very similar catastrophe used as fodder for 2012 hysteria.
However, there is no reputable scientific evidence supporting the notion of an impending 2012 cataclysm. On the other hand, there are good reasons to believe that the Georgia Guidestones is an arrogant advertisement for the demented plans of a deranged but powerful cult to overthrow national governments and install a totalitarian global government.
If anything, 2012 hysteria will be used as a smokescreen for manmade chaos leading up to that event.
So who is R.C. Christian? In my first article I mentioned that we suspected that Ted Turner was at least partially responsible for the Georgia Guidestones. Our motivation for believing this originated during our interview of Wyatt C. Martin, the banker who is purportedly the only man who knows R.C. Christian’s true identity.
The Georgia Guidestones monument was constructed by Freemasons
Prior to our interview, I had composed a list of three candidates for R.C. Christian. Mr. Martin flatly denied that either Joe Fendley, Sr., or Dr. Francis Merchant were behind the monument, but then he detoured unexpectedly into his story of the origins of the Georgia Guidestones. Many minutes later, I tried to bring the conversation back on topic by asking Mr. Martin if he knew who Ted Turner is.
Surprisingly, Mr. Martin erupted enthusiastically stating that he personally knew Ted Turner and had sat behind him for years in box seats at Atlanta Brave games at a time when Ted Turner owned the Braves. It was clear that Ted Turner’s relationship was meaningful for Mr. Martin.
When I then asked him if Ted Turner was R.C. Christian, Mr. Martin appeared stunned and then denied Turner’s involvement.
A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.
– Ted Turner, founder of CNN in Atlanta, Georgia, Kappa Sigma alumnus and donor of $1-billion to the United Nations
However, there is at least one other reason to believe that Ted Turner was connected in some way to the Georgia Guidestones. When I spoke with B.F. Coggins, who had boasted that nothing gets done in Elbert County without his approval, I asked him if he knew Ted Turner. Mr. Coggins volunteered that he was friends with both Turner and even better friends with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. Carter was President at the time that the Georgia Guidestones monument was commissioned.
An achievable goal for anyone investigating the Georgia Guidestones who has moderate resources at their disposal is to identify the author of Common Sense Renewed. Here is the publisher information for that book:
The Georgia Guidestones have been an unwelcome detour from my career as a successful computer benchmarking expert and industry analyst. However, I have persisted in this investigation despite the potential risks to my career and growing business because the stakes involved for humanity are so grave.
The Georgia Guidestones monument contains irrefutable evidence demonstrating that a small group of secretive cultists are extremely wealthy and powerful and able to control and manipulate significant world events. This cabal formulated a plan for the construction of the tallest building in the world on the opposite side of the planet in Dubai more than 30 years after their intentions were encoded into the granite of the Georgia Guidestones. In addition to costing at least $1.5-billion, it appears that this plan required the assassination of Dubai’s ruler.
Moreover, this group’s actions have historically been sinister. The Burj Khalifa symbolizes the completion of a second Tower of Babel as their long sought victory over God. And with it, the beginnings of a New Age where they can now become like God. Their plans for a “New Rational World Order,” as outlined in R.C. Christian’s Common Sense Renewed, involve the establishment of a horrific totalitarian world government enforcing human breeding programs to ensure “docility and loyalty” as has been done with dogs. R.C. Christian’s world state will control every aspect of the common man’s life including choosing his mate and deciding whether or not he can have children.
Attempts to explain the Georgia Guidestones as an effort from a group of “enlightened beings” to warn humanity of an upcoming 2012 apocalypse are hogwash. There is no credible scientific evidence for an impending global catastrophe late next year.
More likely, 2012 hysteria might be leveraged as cover for disguised acts of manmade chaos used to bring down the sovereignty of nations and orchestrate war as a prelude for a global government constructed upon the ashes of civilization. Its capitol may very well be in Dubai. In fact, soon after the Burj Khalifa was formally opened, Dubai invited the United Nations to move its headquarters there.
In addition to constructing a new Tower of Babel, the same cultists have also sought to rebuild Solomon’s Temple so that they can simultaneously introduce their messiah, the first person to undergo apotheosis. Their completion of the Burj Khalifa indicates that this person is alive today and will be introduced soon, probably amidst a catharsis of global war.
The producers and investigators for Brad Meltzer’s Decoded interviewed me for several hours. I told them all of this and more. Of course, I also explained alternative theories so that they could understand the complete picture of the Georgia Guidestones.
I am not sure which angle they will take with my testimonials – I understand that they are a business involved with “edutainment” and can’t court much controversy – but I am hopeful that at least a few people who view that program will become interested enough in the topic to conduct their own investigations. A good place to start is here.
Last spring, a Polish military plane crashed in western Russia effectively decapitating the Polish government. A serious documentary film questioning the official story surrounding the tragic crash is now available for free viewing on the Internet. Several parts of the film are embedded below in this article.
The documentary, which includes interviews with top government officials like Ukraine’s former President Victor Yushenko, lays the blame for the horrific crash at the feet of the Russian government. The Polish crash is depicted as a covert coup d’etat to undermine the independent nature and growing strength of Poland.
President Yushechenko was the target of an assassination attempt in 2004 that left him disfigured. He believes that Russia sponsored his would-be assassins. Like deceased Polish President Lech Kaczynski who was killed in the crash, Yushechenko was a democratizing force in a former Soviet controller area of Eastern Europe.
However, the filmmakers also criticize the effectual boycott of the Polish funerals by leaders of the Western World as signal of their solidarity with Russia’s actions.
The European Union is also viewed as complicit in the murder of Poland’s top governmental officials. The head of Poland’s Central Bank rejected overtures from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) only days before he too was killed alongside 96 others in the Polish plane crash last April.
Coincidentally, Nigel Farage, an outspoken British critic of the European Union, was injured in a plane crash last month after delivering the scathing attack on the full-time European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy, seen below. Farage claimed that Van Rompuy’s “intention is to be the quiet assassin of European democracy and of European nation states.”
In what some are calling an act of war, a report from Diggers Realm claims that the notorious Mexican drug syndicate, Los Zetas, has captured at least two American ranches near Laredo, Texas, and have entered into a standoff with local law enforcement and the Border Patrol.
I can personally vouch that this info came in late last night from a reliable police source inside the Laredo PD. There is currently a standoff between the unknown size Zeta forces and U.S. Border Patrol and local law enforcement on two ranches on our side of the Rio Grande. The source tells us he considers this an “act of war” and that the military is needed on the border now!
The Zetas are heavily armed with grenades, rocket launchers, .50 caliber machine guns, surface to air missiles and helicopters and have been in direct conflict with the Mexican Military for years.
The globalists’ insane Communist test lab of North Korea has threatened nuclear war this weekend if provoked by a joint U.S.-South Korea military exercise. The BBC reports:
“The army and people of the DPRK will start a retaliatory sacred war of their own style based on nuclear deterrent any time necessary in order to counter the US imperialists and the South Korean puppet forces deliberately pushing the situation to the brink of a war,” it added.
Over the last week, a multipronged attack on free speech has come to light.
Leading the assault is Las Vegas-based copyright troll “Righthaven” led by Steve Gibson. On the fast track to becoming the most loathed person on the Internet, Gibson buys up copyrights to newspaper articles published in cyberspace and runs a Web crawler to locate sites that contain material from them. Gibson then sends shakedown letters to the Website owners threatening copyright violation fines up to $150,000 unless the owner pays Gibson off. Note that these malicious letters are NOT preceded by take-down requests, so site owners, several of whom run large message boards and news aggregators and therefore cannot vet all posts, are caught off guard with little apparent recourse without costly legal counsel.
A second prong of attack is led by the Reuters news agency and their paid attack dog Attributer Corporation. This pack of goons is trying a similar shakedown of sites like Godlike Productions, a very popular message board focusing on conspiracy themes. You can read about that ongoing issue here and here.
Of course, what is not discussed is that Websites dearly want to be quoted and linked to from as many sources as possible. A link from Reddit or Godlike Productions can generate tens of thousands of page views and boost a website’s visibility into another league. This is simply the most reliable way of generating traffic. No, these lawsuits are not meant to help prevent content “stealing,” but are rather insidious efforts bordering upon extortion.
Finally, the mainstream media has unleashed their hounds on bloggers and other small, independent media Websites who have become the main conduit of news in our society today. According to NewsBusters:
CNN’s two regulation-happy reporters, think the Sherrod situation can help bring attention to the “necessity” of blogging reform if she brings a defamation lawsuit against Andrew Breitbart.
According to Roberts, Sherrod has “the power now and she also has the profile to maybe bring this into a new light, so we’ll see where this goes.”
Are these efforts the beginning of a coordinated attack against Internet free speech during a dangerous time when our nation’s economy continues to degrade to depths last plumbed during the Great Depression? Time will tell.
According to Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro, the United States and Israel will trigger a nuclear war before Friday that will cause the word’s richest countries to “suddenly disappear.”
Writing in his regular op-ed column “Reflections,” the former Cuban President states that missiles will fly as soon American and Israeli naval forces attempt to inspect Iranian merchant vessels.
I have absolutely no doubt that as soon as the American and Israeli warships are deployed –alongside the rest of the American military vessels positioned off the Iranian coasts– and they try to inspect the first merchant ship from that country, there will be a massive launching of missiles in both directions. At that moment exactly the terrible war will begin. It’s not possible to estimate how many vessels will be sunk or from what country.
The iconic Communist believes this conflagration will occur on or before July 2.
Obama has committed to attend the quarterfinals match on July 2, if his country’s team makes it to that stage. He supposedly knows better than anyone that the quarterfinals will not be contested because very serious developments will take place before that; or at least he should know.
Castro writes that the ensuing nuclear war might escalate to include Russia.
Nevertheless, there are still some uncertainties. Will the two mightiest nuclear powers, the United States and Russia, be able to refrain from using their nuclear weapons against each other?
There is no doubt, however, that from Europe the nuclear weapons of Great Britain and France, allied with the United States and Israel, –the same that enthusiastically imposed the resolution that will inevitably unleash the war, which for the abovementioned [sic] reasons will immediately become nuclear– are threatening the Russian territory even though this country and China have done everything within their capabilities to prevent the conflict.
Castro, the current First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba, describes a grim post-war world that seems to involve a global government similar to the one written about by R.C. Christian as we discussed in our Georgia Guidestones research.
It is possible to predict what will happen in the rest of the Portuguese and Spanish speaking Americas during the nuclear post crisis.
Under such circumstances, it will not be possible to talk of capitalism or socialism. A stage will open that will see the management of the available goods and services in this part of the continent.
Certainly, every country will continue being ruled by those who head the governments today, some very close to socialism and others euphoric over the opening of the world market to fuels, uranium, copper, lithium, aluminum, iron and other metals being sent to the developed and rich countries today that will suddenly disappear.
An abundance of food exported now to that world market will also disappear abruptly.
In these circumstances, the most basic products needed for life: food, water, fuels, and the resources found in the hemisphere south of the United States will suffice to preserve some of the civilization whose unbridled advance has led humanity into such a disaster.
America’s fate is perhaps most grave according to Castro.
The economy of the superpower will fall to pieces like a house of cards. The American society is the least prepared to endure a catastrophe like the one the empire has created in the same territory where it started.
Fidel Castro’s predictions are made more unsettling in light of the discoveries from our Georgia Guidestones research which strongly suggest 2010 will be a pivotal year for the cult behind that monument. Our research shows that this cult successfully completed their modern Tower of Babel, the Burj Khalifa, early this year. For this sinister cabal, the completion of the Burj Khalifa hearkened in their New Age where they believe man can now undergo apotheosis — for this small collection of powerful lunatics, they believe their elect can now become like God.
Their immediate plans appear to be:
Dramatically reduce the world’s population.
Introduce their messiah.
Establish a totalitarian global government, an abominable political creation they call a “New Rational World Order.”
Let’s pray Castro is wrong. But if he is right, we know who is pulling the strings to Armageddon.
The Israel Navy opened fire on an unarmed, six-ship aid flotilla headed for Gaza. The flotilla is carrying 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid and supplies to the Gaza strip. Israel and Egypt have been enforcing a blockade of the seaside area for nearly three years, provoking widespread criticism for the ensuing humanitarian crisis. Various reports put the number killed from the Israeli attack between two and ten. Scores were injured. Israel attacked the flotilla, loaded with medicine, food and supplies, in international waters about 40 miles from the Gaza coast.
The flotilla carried roughly 700 humanitarian activists including several European government officials, an elderly Holocaust survivor and Mairead Corrigan Maguire, the 1976 Nobel Peace Prize winner from North Ireland. By violently attacking the peaceful collection of activists who hailed from many different countries all over the world, Israel risks provoking a major international backlash against them.
Oddly, CNN has still not reported about this extremely important incident, one that could set in motion a major war.
After a recent plane crash decapitated Poland’s government, military and central bank, Poles have taken to the Internet to express disbelief about the official crash story. Fueling their skepticism has been recent revelations debunking original media accounts about the number of landing attempts made before the tragic crash. Additionally, critical evidence gathered from the plane’s black boxes reveal that the aircraft, a recently overhauled Tupelov-154, was in full working order and that the pilot was not being interfered with by anyone on the plane immediately prior to the crash.
The video below touches upon the sentiments currently broiling in that grieving country.
The video also maintains that the Polish government is now investigating crash scene footage that appears to contain evidence of gunfire. We reported about that footage a few days ago.
A South Korean news report cited by Reuters claims that South Korea’s military has informed President Lee Myung-bak that its reclusive northern neighbor torpedoed the South’s 1,200-ton Cheonan naval vessel, killing 46 sailors last month.
The military’s intelligence arm sent the report of “certain” North Korean involvement to the presidential Blue House soon after the incident, Yonhap quoted a high-ranking military source as saying.
“North Korean submarines are all armed with heavy torpedoes with 200 kg (441 lb) warheads,” the military source was quoted as saying by Yonhap. “It is the military intelligence’s assessment that the North attacked with a heavy torpedo.
“The military intelligence has made the report to the Blue House and to the Defense Ministry immediately after the sinking of the Cheonan that it is clearly the work of North Korea’s military,” the source was quoted as saying.
South Korea plans to soon raise the front half of the 1,200-tonne Cheonan, which went down near a disputed sea border with North Korea, and will issue its verdict on the cause of the explosion that sank the warship after that.
According to the same news source, the information for the South Korean military report was gathered jointly with the United States. That same report warns of a possible surprise attack from North Korea.
Yonhap said the South Korean and U.S. military suspected the North was stepping up drills to infiltrate a submarine south of the naval border, hidden among Chinese fishing boats, and wage a surprise attack against the South.
One week after the tragic crash of a Tupelov-154 military aircraft near Smolensk in western Russia killed key leaders of Poland’s government, military and central bank, a video was released allegedly showing the systematic assassination of the crash survivors. The purported evidence in the shaky video is difficult to make out even with the assistance of visual aids. An English language version of the video can be seen below.
Adding another layer of intrigue, a comment on a Polish website claims that the person who filmed this scene, Adrij Mendierej, was assaulted and stabbed multiple times after posting this video to the Internet. While at the hospital for treatment of the resulting severe wounds, two unknown assailants again attacked Mendierej, stabbing him repeatedly and removing him from life support resulting in his death on April 16th. A crude translation can be read here. An active discussion thread can be viewed here.
Although this evidence appears to be marginal at the moment, it must be stated that mainstream media recently retracted earlier stories claiming the Polish plane crashed on its fourth attempt to land. Instead, the official story now admits that the plane crashed on its first landing attempt.
“The situation with the Polish economy and the financial system is sufficiently good … that it is not necessary to ask the IMF for a further extension of the flexible credit line,” the bank said in a statement.
The central bank said it could instead provide the IMF with a loan to “help other countries overcome the effects of the global crisis.”
Yesterday’s horrific crash took the life of the head of Poland’s Central Bank along with the Polish President and virtually all of that country’s top military officials. All 97 people on board the Tupelov-154 military transport perished.
“The entire top military brass, including the chief of defense and all the services, were on the plane,” said Tomas Valasek, of the Center for European Reform.
“If that is true, then you’re looking at a situation, in effect, of the decapitation of the military services.”
The Polish contingency were en route to observe the 70th anniversary of the massacre of some 20,000 Polish prisoners of war (POWs) in the nearby village of Katyn during World War II.
The head of the company that recently serviced the plane seemed to suggest foul play was the cause of the tragedy.
The plane was refurbished and repaired last year, according to the general director of the company that performed the service. Alexei Gusev, the general director of Aviakor Factory, told CNN that the plane received major refurbishing and repair in December 2009.
The work included rebuilding all of the engines, he said. His company also provided the Polish government with repair and maintenance parts for the next six years.
“The plane has been in use very little since that major repair,” he said. “Speaking openly, we believe that this tragedy could not have been caused by equipment failure.”
Whistle blower website Wikileaks posted a classified video showing the U.S. military mistakenly killing a group of Iraqi civilians along with two Reuters journalists. A cover-up ensued. The raw, sobering footage can be viewed below.
