the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his praises: who
forgives all thy transgressions, who heals all thy diseases; who
redeems thy life from corruption; who crowns thee with mercy and
compassion; who satisfies thy desire with good things: so that thy
youth shall be renewed like that of the eagle.”

Respected Scientist Says He Found Proof God Exists
Veronica Neffinger | Editor, ChristianHeadlines.com | Tuesday, June 07, 2016
One of the world’s most respected scientists has said that there is scientific proof that points to the existence of God.
According to the Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies, scientist Michio Kaku, who is known as one of the developers of the revolutionary String Theory, stated, “I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence.”
In a video Kaku explains, using physics and mathematics and referencing String Theory, how science points to the existence of God.
The very purpose of physics, says Kaku is “to find an equation … which will allow us to unify all the forces of nature and allow us to read the mind of God.”
Kaku has proposed a theory to that end, using what he calls “primitive semi-radius tachyons.”
“To me it is clear that we exists in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance,” he stated.
Once these new scientific discoveries become widely known, the concept of chance will be changed forever.
“Believe me,” says Kaku, “everything that we call chance today won’t make sense anymore.”
What is the Last Secret to Be Revealed Before the Messiah?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz May 31, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“Praise Him with the blast of the horn; praise Him with the psaltery and harp. Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and the pipe.” Psalms 150:3-5 (The Israel Bible™)

When the Temple was still in service thousands of years ago, music was an essential aspect of serving God. That sacred music, sent into exile along with the Jewish people after the destruction of the Second Temple, has been lost for 2,000 years. Today, one man is working to bring back that music, the return of which was predicted by a great Jewish sage to be the last step before the Messiah.
Music has always been a way of connecting to God, ever since the first musician, Jubal.
“And his brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all such as handle the harp and pipe.” (Genesis 4:21)
When the Children of Israel witnessed the splitting of the Red Sea, Miriam the prophetess picked up a tambourine and led the entire nation in a song of praise (Exodus 15:2). Saul encountered a group of prophets who used music to connect to God (I Samuel 10:5). Isaiah composed songs, and Ezekiel prophesied about one “who has a pleasant voice and plays well on an instrument”. And of course, King David, the Biblical rockstar, gave us the official Temple song book: Psalms.
The Temple was the heart of the Jewish People and music was at its core. According to the Talmud (Jewish oral law), the regular Temple orchestra consisted of twelve instruments, and the choir of twelve male singers.
Temple musicians were selected from the tribe of Levi. The Zohar explains that the Levites were selected to sing in the Temple because the name Levi means to accompany, and their music would cause other to come close to God.
Levitical singers went through a training period from the age of 25 to 30 and usually participated in the Temple service between the ages of 30 and 50. Young Levites often joined the choir to “add sweetness to the sound” but were not permitted to stand on the same platform with the adult Levites (Talmud Erchin 2:6).
When Israel went into exile, so did the music. When the Jews were captive in Babylon, musicians hung up their harps and refused to play.
“How shall we sing the LORD’S song in a foreign land?” (Psalms 137:4)
Rabbi David Louis, an accomplished musician, is now working to change all that. As the composer for the Temple Institute, he is attempting to bring back the Temple music, he told Breaking Israel News.
Its loss, he revealed, was not a mistake, but intentional.
“It was caused to be forgotten by the Levites, so that it wouldn’t be used for secular purposes,” he explained. “They broke their instruments and even injured their own hands.”
Rabbi Louis is tuning up his harp in preparation, expecting the return of the Temple music very soon.
“The Gaon of Vilna (an 18th century Torah sage) said that the Temple music will be the last secret to be revealed before the Messiah, and we are almost there,” Rabbi Louis explained. “Prophecy is about to return, bringing music with it. The music exists and it is waiting for us to access it.
“We have the tools but we aren’t exploring them to their full potential. The most powerful example of this is the trop, the cantillation that teaches how to sing the Bible. This teaches us so much about the musicology of the Bible.”
Rabbi Louis sees prophecy as returning along with the music, explaining that we are already beginning that process.
“Just as we have a prophetic experience when we say Shema and unify ourselves with God, musicians will be able to do this using the cantillation. But people are not exploring this. It is apparently being held back until people will do this without trying to use it for personal gain.”
He described to Breaking Israel News the characteristics that make Temple Music unique.
“Temple music can only be achieved within a mentality that allows for the simultaneous existence of individuality and collectivity. Jews are extremely individualistic: each is a complete world unto himself. Yet we all have an equally strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people. In musical terms this means that we are able to blend two opposite musical techniques, composition, a cohesion with the whole, combined with improvisation, individual freedom of expression.”
As a trained orchestral conductor, Rabbi Louis understands how difficult this is technically.
“Were we to attempt Temple heterophony professionally,” he posited, “Classically-trained musicians would feel uncertain of what is expected of them and untrained musicians would lack sense of musical geometry.”
After 2,000 years of musical exile, Rabbi Louis believes that what is lacking to bring back Temple music is simply a change in attitude, and to pick up our instruments and begin to play.
“All we are lacking is the freedom of thought,” Rabbi Louis explained. “If you want to bring this prophetic reality into existence, we should just start having rehearsals. It is going to come from the interaction of people with this intention, people who come together to play music for holy purposes.”
So how will we know that the music that comes out will be the real Temple music? Rabbi Louis has no worries.
“Whatever happens then will be the de facto authentic music of the Temple, even though none of us can predict, expect or prepare for the actual sound which will will be heard.”
CHRISTIANS TOLD 'PRAY IN SILENCE' TO AVOID OFFENDING MIGRANTS
Catholic charity helps facilitate mass migration to Europe
Published: June 6, 2016
A Catholic charity has shut down prayer in one Italian church so migrants who are in the community are not offended, in fact, taking parishioners to another location so they could recite the rosary.
And the actions, reported by Breitbart, among others, generated thousands of online comments in just hours on Monday.
Those included blanket condemnations of Islam, the faith practices by many immigrants arriving in Italy, and plans to buy and apply bacon, which is forbidden to Muslims, in liberal quantities.
It’s also not the first time Christian churches have given in entirely to a Muslim agenda that puts all other faiths and their members in second class. Previously the Archbishop of Canterbury told members of churches in England they should not evangelize Muslims.
In the latest manifestation of the dominance handed to Muslims, members of the Christian church of St. Anthony in Ventimiglia in Italy were told by volunteers from Caritas, a Catholic organization working for migrants, to pray in silence or go somewhere else.
“Caritas is ostensibly a Catholic charity, although much of its resources are spent on facilitating mass migration to Europe; the organization even boasts that it contributes to and seeks to influence European Union (EU) ‘asylum’ policies. Caritas reports that they have been distributing 600 meals a day to migrants in Ventimiglia,” Breitbart reported.
But when one of the women in the church asked that the migrants to moved so that she would be free to express her religion, through the rosary, Don Rito, parish priest, took her, and others, away from the church to another location, multiple reports confirmed.
Hundreds of migrants have been flooding into the Italian city of about 55,000 en route to other parts in Europe, and Mayor Enrico Ioculano said the city is struggling to pay the costs for the migrants.
Further, the migrant “guests” at St. Anthony’s Church have had to be inoculated against chicken pox, following an outbreak there, officials said.
Commenters below the published story had diverging opinions from the more militant, “It is time Christians take an equal stand for our religious rights” to a more direct reaction from one who said, “After being told that, it would have been extremely hard for me not to stand up and start praying at the top of my lungs.”
Then among the more than 3,000 comments that were posted in just a couple of hours was a warning, “Lock and load my friends. Get ready. After the presidential elections are over and Hillary is our new POTUS, we will be in deep poop because of her immigration policies.”
Then there were the overarching views, “It’s all part of the New World Order. Bring down the major institutions, create chaos and mayhem in the streets then step in like a savior to stop the fighting that you caused. The people will pay any price for their security.”
It was only a couple weeks earlier when Archbishop of Canterburg Justin Welby, a key faith leader in the United Kingdom, said Muslim migrants should not be evangelized by Christians.
He said Christians should not actively “proselytize” non-Christians, the Express reported.
The instructions came as 5.6 percent of Britain’s population now is identifying as Muslim and churches there are being converted into mosques.
Welby said Christians should be more concerned about “respect for the other,” and start by “listening before you speak.” They should offer “love that is unconditional and not conditional to one iota, to one single element, on how the person responds to your own declaration of faith; and of not speaking about faith unless you are asked about faith.”
His comments earned a quick rebuke from other leaders who said his perspective is unbiblical.
Bible teacher and filmmaker Joel Richardson told WND, “Christianity has never merely been an intellectual acknowledgement of some particular set of doctrines.”
He has released “When A Jew Rules the World,” “The Global Jesus Revolution” and “The Islamic Antichrist.”
Earlier, pastor Gerhard Scholte of the Reformed Keizersgracht Church, a leader in the migrant movement in the Netherlands, told the Daily Beast that his church does not promote conversions of non-Christians.
Another report revealed Father Joachim Deterding, parish priest of the evangelical Königshardt-Schmachtendorf church in Oberhausen, Germany, agreed to house migrants in the building, and said in additional to taking the pulpit and pews out for beds, “the church is also clearing out Christian symbols.”
Confusing even the devout: the troubling statements of Pope Francis
From the desk of the editor.
Fri Jun 3, 2016 - 12:54 pm EST
June 3, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Two weeks ago the latest controversial interview with Pope Francis hit the press, this time in France with the daily newspaper La Croix. Contrary to the teaching of previous popes, such as Leo XIII in Libertas and Pius XI in Quas Primas, Pope Francis said, “States must be secular. Confessional states end badly. That goes against the grain of History.” In the same interview, Francis suggested a comparison between Christianity and Islamic adherents’ use of conquest to impose their beliefs. “It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam,” he said. “However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.”
The shocking statements reminded me of the very first leaked Q&A with Pope Francis at the beginning of his papacy. It’s an interview remembered most for the pope's admission that there is a “gay lobby” inside the Vatican. Despite the fact that such explosive news would have been huge for LifeSiteNews, you won’t find that first interview covered on LifeSiteNews anywhere near the date of its release. I simply could not believe it to be authentic or accurate – not because of the ‘gay lobby’ comment – but because the Pope had spoken disparagingly about a spiritual bouquet of rosaries he had received upon his election.
Pope Francis was quoted as saying:
It concerns me; when I was elected, I received a letter from one of these groups, and they said: “Your Holiness, we offer you this spiritual treasure: 3,525 rosaries.” Why don't they say, “we pray for you, we ask...”, but this thing of counting... And these groups return to practices and to disciplines that I lived through - not you, because you are not old - to disciplines, to things that in that moment took place, but not now, they do not exist today...
“There is no way,” I remember thinking to myself, “a Pope would ever say anything slighting the rosary.” That aspect of the interview made me question whether any of it was authentic. Thus, I resisted the pressure to publish a story on the Pope’s remarks on the ‘gay lobby’ in the Vatican. A few weeks later I was in Rome and finally got a chance to ask someone in the know about the leaked interview. I was shocked to hear: “of course it was true.” It was, I was told, the first example of a new communications method employed by the Pope using different channels.
That sense, of “there’s no way a pope could ever say such a thing,” has resurfaced time and again over the last few years, and not only from the Holy Father’s off-the-cuff and leaked interviews. Even in official teachings such as his Angelus addresses and homilies at big events, Pope Francis has shocked Catholic sensibilities. Such as the Angelus of June 2, 2013, where he spoke about Christ’s miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes as taking place by "sharing." “This is the miracle: rather than a multiplication it is a sharing, inspired by faith and prayer,” he said.
He was even more explicit about it in July of last year in a homily preached in Christ the Redeemer Square in Bolivia. Pope Francis said, “This is how the miracle takes place. It is not magic or sorcery. … Jesus managed to generate a current among his followers: they all went on sharing what was their own, turning it into a gift for the others; and that is how they all got to eat their fill. Incredibly, food was left over: they collected it in seven baskets.”
There have been many of these jarring incidents. Here is a list of some of them:
- In July 2013 when a reporter asked why during his trip to Brazil he failed to speak of abortion and homosexuality despite the fact that the nation had just approved laws concerning these matters, the Pope replied: “The Church has already spoken quite clearly on this. It was unnecessary to return to it, just as I didn’t speak about cheating, lying, or other matters on which the Church has a clear teaching!”
- In an October 2013 interview with La Repubblica, Pope Francis was reported to have said: “The most serious of the evils that afflict the world these days are youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old… the most urgent problem that the Church is facing.” In the same interview he said: “Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense.” And also: “I believe in God, not in a Catholic God, there is no Catholic God, there is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation.”
- The November 2013 Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium was similar to the Repubblica interview in that the Pope focuses on “two great issues” that, he says, “will shape the future of humanity.” “These issues are first, the inclusion of the poor in society, and second, peace and social dialogue,” he wrote.
- In the 2014 book on Pope Francis, The Great Reformer, we learn from papal biographer Austin Ivereigh that Tony Palmer, an Anglican and long time friend of Pope Francis, spoke to then-Cardinal Bergoglio about whether he should become Catholic. Mr. Palmer described the then-Cardinal’s response as: “[Bergoglio] told me that we need to have bridge-builders. He counseled me not to take the step because it looked like I was choosing a side and I would cease to be a bridge-builder.”
- In January of 2015 came the “don’t breed like rabbits” in-flight interview on his return from Manila. Speaking of a woman he knows who was pregnant with her eighth child after having the first seven by C-section, he said he had “rebuked” her, saying, “But do you want to leave seven orphans? That is to tempt God!” “That is an irresponsibility,” he added, “God gives you methods to be responsible.” Pope Francis then said, “Some think that, excuse me if I use that word, that in order to be good Catholics we have to be like rabbits.” He added, “No. Responsible parenthood!”
- In March 2015 came another interview with Repubblica in which the Pope seemed to suggest no person could go to hell, but if they fully rejected God they would be annihilated. The article says: “What happens to that lost soul? Will it be punished? And how? The response of Francis is distinct and clear: there is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul. All the others will participate in the beatitude of living in the presence of the Father. The souls that are annihilated will not take part in that banquet; with the death of the body their journey is finished.”
- There was some controversy over Repubblica's Scalfari interview. The Vatican would neither verify nor deny it in its specific parts, but nevertheless published it in the Vatican newspaper, and on the Vatican website. It was later deleted from the website, only to republish it again, then delete it again. Vatican watchers compared the most controversial part regarding the impossibility of people going to hell for all eternity to the statement from the Pope’s latest exhortation Amoris Laetitia, in which he said, “No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!”
- In a February 2016 interview with one of Italy’s most prominent dailies, Corriere Della Sera, Pope Francis praised Italy’s leading proponent of abortion, Emma Bonino, as one of the nation’s “forgotten greats,” comparing her to great historical figures such as Konrad Adenauer and Robert Schuman. The Pope praised her for her work with refugees from Africa. Bonino was famously arrested for illegal abortions and then became a politician who has led the fight for the legalization of abortion, euthanasia, homosexual “marriage,” legalization of recreational drugs, graphic sex education, and more.
- On February 18, 2016 on the papal plane returning from Mexico, the Pope commented on Donald Trump during the Presidential Primaries. “A person who only thinks about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” he said, according to a transcript of his remarks. In the same press scrum, the Pope said he would not comment on Italy’s same-sex civil union legislation “because the pope is for everybody and he can’t insert himself in the specific internal politics of a country.”
This small sampling gives enough reason why faithful Catholics who love the Church and the Holy Father are concerned. They are so concerned they are overcoming the natural reticence to criticize the actions of the Pope – the Vicar of Christ on earth. With reverence and love, with prayer and prudence—as well as the pain of children questioning their father—they are beginning to speak with greater boldness, sensing that the result of remaining silent about the current trajectory implies acquiescence and even approval, which would only contribute to the spreading ambiguities about the meaning of morality, faith and salvation.

Mel Gibson Planning 'Passion of the Christ' Sequel (Exclusive)

'Braveheart' screenwriter Randall Wallace says he is writing a follow-up to the biblical blockbuster that will focus on the resurrection of Jesus.
Mel Gibson and writer Randall Wallace are working on a sequel to The Passion of the Christ that will tell the story of the resurrection of Jesus, Wallace tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Wallace, nominated for an Academy Award for scripting Gibson's 1995 best picture Oscar winner Braveheart, on Thursday (reluctantly) confirmed rumors that he has begun to write a script for a story about the resurrection, telling THR that the project is becoming too difficult to keep under wraps.
Wallace, who most recently directed and co-wrote the 2014 faith-based drama Heaven Is for Real, says he and Gibson began to get serious about a sequel to The Passion, the most successful independent film of all time, while making Hacksaw Ridge, which Gibson directed and Wallace co-wrote. Hacksaw Ridge opens in November and centers on World War II Army medic Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Wallace was a religion major at Duke University and says the resurrection was a specialty of his. "I always wanted to tell this story," he says. "The Passion is the beginning and there's a lot more story to tell."
A rep for Gibson declined to comment on the filmmaker-actor's involvement in a Passion sequel.
The Passion, Gibson's story of the persecution and crucifixion of Jesus, was released in 2004 by the independent Newmarket Films and earned a whopping $612 million worldwide on a $30 million production budget. Since then, many in Hollywood have presumed a sequel would someday be made, but Gibson has moved on to other projects.
Rumors swirled anew last month when Gibson was a surprise guest at Liberty University's graduation ceremony to do an advance screening of Hacksaw Ridge and was asked about a Passion follow-up. He expressed interest in making a sequel but was not specific about his involvement. Wallace says demand in the Christian community influenced his and Gibson's willingness to do another film.
"The evangelical community considers The Passion the biggest movie ever out of Hollywood, and they kept telling us that they think a sequel will be even bigger," Wallace says.
No studio or financial backing has been lined up for the project, which is still in the early script stage. But Wallace indicates there are several financiers interested in investing. "It's too early to talk money," he adds. "This is such a huge and sacred subject."
In February, Sony released Risen, which tells the story of the resurrection, though Gibson wasn't involved. The movie made $46 million worldwide on a $20 million budget.

What is hiding in the last wonder of the world? Scans using 'cosmic particles' to reveal secrets of the Great Pyramid of Giza
Scientists are using muons to peer through the stone of the Great Pyramid
Infrared scans showed a heat anomaly within the 480 feet tall pyramid
Experts say this could be a hidden chamber within the famous structure
Last month scans of the Bent Pyramid revealed its interal structure
By Richard Gray For Mailonline
PUBLISHED: 13:40, 3 June 2016 | UPDATED: 23:19, 3 June 2016
For more than 4,500 years, Egypt's pyramids have kept their secrets hidden deep within the labyrinth of passages and chambers that lie inside their towering stone structures.
But the long-running row over whether the Great Pyramid of Giza is hiding a network of previously undiscovered tunnels behind its stone walls could soon finally be answered.
A group of researchers who have been using cosmic particles known as muons to scan the Great Pyramid of Giza have said they expect to finish their work later this month.
They are using the scans to create maps to reveal the internal structure of the 479 feet (146m) high pyramid and say they could help to unlock ancient secrets that have been buried beneath the stone.
Dr Zahi Hawass, a leading Egyptian archaeologist and Egypt's former head of antiquities, is working with a team of French researchers who have been conducting the scans.
He said: 'It's running right now, and if it manages to detect one of the three chambers we already know exist inside, then we will continue the scans.'
Last year thermal scanning identified a major anomaly in the Great Pyramid, the largest and oldest of the pyramids at Giza and one of the seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Those scans identified three adjacent stones at its base which registered higher temperatures than others.
This led to theories that they may be hiding a secret chamber that has yet to be discovered.
A team of experts then set up the ScanPyramid's project to use muons, tiny subatomic particle that are typically produced by cosmic rays smash into atoms on Earth, to peer through the Pyramid's huge stone blocks, some of which weight up to 15 tons.
Dr Hawass has in the past been sceptical of the usefulness of conducting such scans.
He recently clashed publicly with British Egyptologists over their theory that a secret burial chamber may be hidden behind the walls of Tutankhamun's tomb in his pyramid in the Valley of the Kings.
Writing on his website last year after Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities announced the results of the thermal scans on the Great Pyramid, he said: 'The base of the Great Pyramid is cut some eight metres into the rock, and this can be seen clearly on the south side of the pyramid.
'It would be impossible to see a room or tunnel in this location near to the rock. If this room exists, it would have to have a function, and since this is not the case the claim cannot be valid.'
But Dr Hawass has since been asked by Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities to lead the scientific team that will examine the muon scan results.
He was dismissed from his position as head of the Antiquities Ministry following the uprising in 2011 that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
Speaking outside the Great Pyramid duing a visit with Egypt's current Antiquities Minister, Khaled El-Anani, Dr Hawass said he had come round to the idea that another burial chamber may remain undiscovered inside the pyramid.
He said: 'You need Egyptologists to oversee all this, otherwise mistakes can be made.
'I hope these scans will help us obtain accurate information.'
The Great Pyramid is thought to have been built as a tomb for the Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, also known as Cheops, who died in around 2566BC.
It is thought to have been built over a 10 to 20 year period from nearly two million tons of stone. Finished in around 2560BC, it is made from more than 300,000 blocks.
Last month, archaeologists revealed 3D scans taken using muons of the 4,500 year old Bent Pryamid at the royal necropolis of Dashur.
These scans revealed the pyramid's internal structure, clearly showing a second chamber around 60 feet above a lower chamber.
Some had suggested pharaoh Sneferu was buried inside the pyramid in a hidden chamber, but the latest scans have ruled out that possibility.
Speaking last month, Mehdi Tayoubi, president of the Heritage Innovation Preservation Institute which is part of the team conducting the scans, said the muon tests of the Great Pyramid of Giza promised to be equally revealing.
He said: 'Even if we find one square meter void somewhere, it will bring new questions and hypotheses and maybe it will help solve the definitive questions.
'The idea is to find the solution to the mystery of the pyramids.
'A similar attempt was made 30 years ago, but this is the first project at a global level using cutting-edge technology to look inside the pyramids.'
Dr Hawass has also said he is hopeful of unravelling some more of the mysteries of the pyramids using new technology.
He said: 'In my opinion, the Pyramid of Khufu still holds many secrets.'

That’s No Moon. It’s an Alien Observatory Created to Keep an Eye on Us!
Wednesday, June 8, 2016 7:18
Sure, claiming the Moon is artificial might sound crazy, but why does it ring like a bell when struck?
Previous expeditions to the Moon have brought back considerable amount of information, but our planet’s natural satellite still remains mostly a mistery for researchers. The first man ever invested by NASA to head the Commission of Lunar Exploration, Dr. Jastrow, referred to the Moon as “ the Rosetta stone of the planets.”
Many UFOlogists are convinced that the Moon, who everybody believes to be a natural satellite, was in fact built by a more advanced civilization as a study base where they could document the behavior of our species.
Others believe the aliens aren’t that interested in our society as they don’t understand intra-racial violence, so the Moon serves as a simple watchtower that would let them know if mankind would ever try to leave Earth and travel through space.
Moderate theorists say its body is covered by a rocky layer, which could measure more than 3 miles from the surface, sitting on top of a shell, made out of extremely durable chemical components, that could even withstand a large scale impact like with an asteroid or a comet without sustaining much damage.
A NASA researcher named Robin Brett once stated that : “It seems easier to explain the non existence of the Moon than its existence.”
Here are some strange facts that make us believe the Moon was actually built from scratch.
In 1969, the United States built a module for the sole purpose of crashing it into the Moon in order to study the after effects. The estimated power it packed upon impact was said to be that of one thousand Kilograms of TNT. After the controlled crash, experts observed the waves generated by the shock and were amazed. The Moon made a sound resembling that of a gigantic bell, and the echo went on for more than half an hour.
Ken Johnson, the man supervising photo and information stated that the Moon also vibrated or “wobbled” in a symmetric manner, “ almost as though it had gigantic hydraulic damper struts inside it” .
Alexander Shcerbakov and Mikhail Vasin published an article sometime in the 70s, named “Is the Moon the creation of Alien Intelligence?” In the article, they ask some very legitimate questions and expose known facts that defy any logical explanation. The surface of the Moon, the only part that could be studied, contains minerals and is mostly made up of uncommonly hard matter.
Samples retrieved from the Moon have also been found to hold forged metal material, which couldn’t have formed there or arrive by itself. Scientists found parts of highly processed Uranium that science has never been able to achieve via natural processes. They have also found traces of radioactive metals normally used to produce Plutonium on a large scale. This is all clear evidence that the Moon is not as inactive as we’re being led to believe.
It is common knowledge that our moon doesn’t have a hard nucleus as other planets or natural satellites do and the mass is concentrated in a number of points, most of which are located at a very low depth.
Another well known fact is that the Moon is older than 4 and a half billion years, which makes it older than our planet by almost a million years. It is different from any other satellite known across the universe. Unlike any other natural satellite, the moon describes a perfect round orbit around the planet it’s circling. No matter which point you look from, one side of the moon will always be invisible.
Titanium, a very rare and expensive metal on Earth, used for the development of advanced technology (space shuttles or submarines), is found in large and concentrated quantities inside rocks on the moon. Harold Urey, a Nobel prize winning chemist, is still very confused by this fact.
Strange facts as the ones you’ve just read keep piling up every day, while modern science keeps failing to explain them. Not only is the amount of information about the moon very scarce, but the percentage of people with access to it is being kept under control.
Crunch Time: June Could be the Month That Changes the World
15:36 04.06.2016(updated 16:07 04.06.2016)
From Brexit to Spain's Podemos, to Germany's constitutional court challenge for the ECB, June will be a month of decisions that will define this year, the German newspaper Die Welt reported.

Secret ECB Docs Point to More Financial Mayhem on the Horizon
The 30 days of June will be this year's most important, and several events are set to change the world's political and economic landscape.
On Wednesday, German newspaper Die Welt began the month by listing some of the most important decisions that will take place.
June 14-15, Washington
In December last year the US Federal Reserve decided to raise its benchmark interest rate for the first time in ten years, by 25 basis points to 0.50 percent from 0.25 percent, which was followed by a plunge on the world's stock markets.
This time, traders estimate a 34 percent probability of another rate hike, which would again have a significant effect on the world economy, particularly for players in emerging markets who hope their dollar-denominated debt remains cheap to service.
June 21, Karlsruhe
The European Central Bank (ECB) will face a major challenge if Germany's Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe rules that the Outright Money Transactions (OMT) program the ECB outlined in 2012 to calm the Eurozone is unlawful.
ECB chief Mario Draghi vowed to do "whatever it takes" to save the single currency, and proposed a bond-buying program which has been challenged by a group of German academics and politicians from the left-wing Die Linke party.
They are opposed to the OMT and the ECB's quantitative easing bond-buying program launched in March 2015, arguing that they constitute fiscal, not monetary policy, and as such extend beyond the central bank's mandate.
The OMT would allow the ECB to potentially buy unlimited amounts of government debt from countries in trouble that request assistance, thereby transforming itself into a de facto lender of last resort.
The plan has not been implemented, but in 2012 it succeeded in restoring confidence to eurozone markets by defusing speculation on the sovereign debt of highly indebted countries like Spain and Italy.
The European Court of Justice has ruled the OMT to be lawful, but Germany's Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe has already expressed doubts over its legality. If German judges rule against the OMT program they could also prohibit the Bundesbank, the ECB's largest shareholder (25.6 percent), from taking part in the program.
June 23, UK
If voters in the UK decide to leave the EU, the shock waves would reverberate across the continent. Accounting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers has estimated that Brexit would cost the UK £100 billion ($145 billion) and a million jobs, and Bloomberg has estimated that European banks stand to lose more than €100 billion ($114 billion) from Brexit.
"Things could get even worse, particularly if Brexit becomes an example. Europe has been developing closer union for decades – now it could drift further apart. What happens if other states emulate the British and leave the EU? … If June 23 is the first day of a domino effect, the results could be disastrous," Die Welt reported.
June 26, Spain
"Left-wing populists are close to victory," ahead of Spain's June 26 elections, reports Die Welt.
Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's conservative People's Party is currently leading in polls which give it 30 percent of the vote, but the left-wing Podemos Party led by Pablo Iglesias has just reached an agreement to ally with the green-communist United Left alliance. If that umbrella group can extend to the Socialists, Spain's conservatives would be outvoted.
The German newspaper believes a victory of the left, like in Greece, "Would be fatal."
"At 20.1 percent, unemployment (there) is as high as anywhere in the EU. The country is clearly going to fail to reach the Maastricht budget deficit limit of three percent this year. The future government must save €20-25 billion ($23 —28 billion), otherwise the continent is threatened with another disaster like Greece – only much worse."
U.S. ACCUSED OF PLANNING TO DIVIDE ARAB REGIMES
'Nobody can fail to notice' design to separate region into '13 states'
Published: June 8, 2016
The U.S. is being accused of strategizing to divide further the Middle East’s Arab regimes into more than a dozen new states, according to a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
“Nobody can fail to notice that five Arab countries – Iraq, Syria, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Sudan – are to be divided into 13 states,” charged a commentary in the Egyptian Al-Ahram daily.
“The ghosts of Sykes-Picot are tangibly present … to divide the Arab region into mini-states along sectarian lines: states for Christians, Shiites, Alawites, Sunnis and Kurds,” the warning continued, “The danger is real and threatens all of us…”
The comments come on the 100th anniversary of the Sykes-Picot agreement, the secret deal involving Great Britain, France and Russia (which later dropped out of the deal) “for the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire” at the conclusion of World War I, Britannica reports.
It divvied up lands including parts of Armenia, Kurdish territory, Mesopotamia, several Mediterranean ports, and other lands into areas of influence for France and England, to replace the Ottoman Empire which had sided with Germany in the battles.
This year is the 100th anniversary of the agreement, and in recognition of that, multiple Arab writers have commented on the division of Ottoman lands then, and the current Middle East situation, where Arab factions are fighting among themselves, including Shiite and Sunni Muslim factions in Iraq, Lebanon, Syrian, Libya and more.
The comments have been assembled by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors such reports and offers commentary and analysis.
The charges varied some, but focused on claims that the U.S. and Russia “are formulating a new Sykes-Picot Agreement in cooperation with Israel and some Arab regimes.”
The Al-Ahram commentary continued, “The plot is clear. Western research institutes and the American press are openly talking of a new Sykes-Picot that will correct the mistakes of the previous partition.”
MEMRI reported a Lebanese strategic analyst, Niza ‘Abd Al-Qader, wrote in the Saudi daily Al-Hayat the U.S. has been working to subdivide the Arab regimes for nearly 50 years.
“American plans formulated in the 1970s and in subsequent decades” promoted “corrupt and tyrannical regimes,” he wrote. “Apparently, the U.S. administrations also continue to encourage [such plans.]”
Are the U.S. and NATO inciting Russia into war? To thousands of objective "experts," it does appear so.
7 June at 02:05 ·
BALTOPS 16, a NATO military exercise is now taking place in the Baltic Sea in very close proximity to Russia. "Over the next three weeks BALTOPS 16 will draw together some 6,000 personnel, 45 warships, and 60 aircraft from 17 nations, including the United States, Germany, the U.K., the Netherlands, along with the littoral states of the Baltic States who are NATO members (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Denmark) or NATO partners (Sweden and Finland)"
"Washington’s move to place a new ground-based missile defense system in Romania with Poland’s recruitment drive and the BALTOPS 16 exercise will surely raise tensions with Russia which are at an all time high since the Cold War. Russia views this move as a threat to its security with NATO’s encirclement of Russia is as reckless and as dangerous as you can get in terms of escalating the possibility of a disastrous war."
(Imagine how the American people would react if Russia were putting missile systems on our northern and southern borders.)
"Russia is more than prepared to fight a war against NATO which would not last more than three days at best according to the Rand Corporation, a think tank based in Santa Monica, California. The Rand corporation employed well-known players in the political arena including war criminal Henry Kissinger as an advisor and George W. Bush-era Neocons such as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (former Chairman of the board 1981-1986 and again in 1995-1996) and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice who was a former intern and trustee. The RAND corporation report admitted that a NATO war against Russia would last between 36 and 60 hours."
"If NATO were that foolish to start a war against Russia, European countries across Western Europe would be open to Russian missile strikes crippling Europe’s already fragile social and economic fabric. An attack on Russia would be the end of NATO, literally. Russia has capabilities that are far more advanced than what the U.S. and NATO forces have in their arsenal."
"The U.S. and its allies including Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia and other Gulf puppet states were all involved in creating the civil war in Syria in 2011 through a proxy opposition group to oust President Bashar al-Assad. The“protests” were orchestrated by a covert operation led by US-NATO-Israeli intelligence agencies to create chaos in order to fault the Syrian government through propaganda. Washington and Israel want to destabilize Syria as a Nation State and break-up Syria into several small nation-states easier for the governments of the U.S. and Israel to control. Israel’s interest in destabilizing Syria goes back decades, perhaps as far back when the State of Israel was declared a new independent state in 1948."
"For Now, Washington (a bully in its own right) will continue to target smaller, weaker nations with their terrorists who they fund, train and manage in the Middle East and Africa. They will continue to destabilize governments through “regime change” in Latin America as they recently did in Brazil and are in the process of targeting Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia through their Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) or controlled “opposition groups” allied with Washington and Wall Street. The American Empire will continue to rape and pillage the planet’s resources; after all, the American Empire follows the typical patterns of past empires who committed similar crimes against humanity."
"As for NATO forces on Russia’s borders, they would be destroyed in less than three days if they were foolish enough to follow Washington’s orders, then again Vassal states have no say in their own foreign or domestic affairs in the first place. NATO is a willing participant waiting for its annihilation as they sacrifice their lives and their nations in a war against Russia not for Europe, but for the American Empire."
Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Ronald Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts, was absolutely right when he said that, "The crazed filth that controls US foreign policy is capable of defending US hegemony with nuclear weapons. The neoconservatives must be removed from power, arrested, and put on international trial for their horrendous war crimes before they defend their hegemony with Armageddon.
"Neoconservatives and their allies in the military/security complex make audacious use of false flag attacks. These evil people are capable of orchestrating a false flag attack that propels the US and Russia to war."
At some point, the only way the Neocons in Washington, D.C., and their crony capitalists in New York City can keep their charade afloat is via a major war. War is the ultimate vehicle of globalists to enslave free societies. Is that what D.C. has planned for our near future? Think of the the "national emergency" orders that could be executed by the President; think of the abridgments of the Bill of Rights; think of the entire American nation under "Lock down." Not to mention the loss of multiplied thousands of innocent American lives.
And for those of us who still believe in the importance of "Just War," please remember that the greatest international crime in the eyes of God is the act of aggressive war--nothing equals its condemnation by a Holy God. And right now it seems crystal clear: the U.S. and NATO are the aggressors and, therefore, if forced into war, it would be Russia who would be fighting a defensive, and thus, "Just War."
In the past, Germany, Japan, and Italy found themselves on the wrong side of history. Right now, it seems obvious that it is the United States and NATO--along with Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Israel--that are on the wrong side of history.
The American people had better turn off the Trump and Hillary show long enough to pay attention to what is happening right now in Eastern Europe. It will be too late when nuclear missiles start landing in your back yard, folks.
Media Blackout As France Witnesses Biggest Revolution In 200 Years
Submitted by IWB, on June 3rd, 2016

As France prepares to host millions of visitors at the Euro 2016 Football Championships, a state of emergency has been extended in the country as it faces its largest protests in recent history.
Hundreds of thousands of citizens have taken to the streets in France, amounting to what some are calling the new French Revolution amid a total media blackout in Western news outlets.
The first collaborative protest against the Socialist government since Hollande came to power in 2012, kicked off on 9 March. On March 31, nearly 400,000 people took to the streets, disagreeing with the sweeping changes to labor laws; though organizers put the number at 1.2 million.
On April 9, about 120,000 people marched in Paris and across France for a sixth time, protesting against contested labor reforms. Organizers called for yet another strike on April 28, and a massive protest on May 1, Labor Day. Reports of police officers clashing with protesters, deploying tear gas in several French cities, and protesters burning vehicles, smashing windows flooded the Internet.

In his response, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said in the city of Lyon:
“I call on the organizers of these demonstrations to condemn with the same firmness that I do the unrest caused by these handful of thugs.”
Demanding a complete withdrawal of the draft reform bill, French workers stepped up protests, rallies and blockades in the third week of May. As per the latest updates, one in three gas stations across the country run dry, causing long queues at normally well-stocked stations. There are blockades at 5 of France’s 8 oil refineries. Nearly 1/5th of nuclear power output is cut by striking staff. Since the nation’s electricity supply has dropped, the government is forced to dig into its emergency reserves.
On May 26, more than 150,000 marched against the government’s plans to make it easier for firms to hire and fire. Reuters reports:
In the southwestern city of Bordeaux, about 100 people targeted a police station, throwing objects and damaging a police car. In Paris and in the western city of Nantes, bank windows were broken and protesters clashed with police. The next big day of protests is planned on June 14 [when French senators begin discussing the reform package], four days after the Euro 2016 soccer tournament opens in France. The CGT warned it could be disrupted if the government refuses to withdraw the draft reform bill.
Although, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is willing to modify some of the proposals, workers’ unions are unwilling to back down. Particularly angry that the government is enacting a constitutional power to bypass parliament to pass the bill, several unions led by one of the country’s largest unions, the General Confederation of Labor (or the CGT),declared in an open letter:
“This week, the actions, the strikes and the blockades by workers from a number of industries to demand the retraction of this labor bill and to obtain new rights show that our determination remains intact.”
The Controversial Labor Reform:
1. Makes it easier for companies to lay off staff and cut costs in difficult economic times.
2. Allows companies to opt out of national labor protection rules if they reach in-house deals on pay and conditions with the consent of a majority of their staff – and not the trade unions.
3. Allows employers to extend the legal work week from current 35 hours to 48 hours – up to 60 hours with an ‘exceptional authorization’, and reduce overtime from current 25% to not less than 10%.
4. Proposes surtax on short-term contracts aimed at getting employers to hire more people on permanent contracts
5. Introduces a cap – 15 months of pay – on compensation in cases of unfair dismissal.
Plagued by dismal popularity ratings and high unemployment, President Hollande, who staked his whole term in office on improving life for the country’s struggling youth, says the labor reform is vital to tackle joblessness. Labor Minister Myrian El Khomri, too, defends the new labor law dubbed “the bosses law” by its opponents.
“This law corresponds to the situation in our country. We have an unemployment rate of over 10% the same as it was 20 years ago. It has improved over the last month, however that is not satisfactory. Our country created fewer jobs than other European countries [Between 2013 and 2015, 57,000 jobs were created in France, 482,000 in Germany, 651,000 in Spain and 288,000 in Italy.] So for me the text and the goal of this reform is to be able to just improve access to employment.”
However, opponents of the labor reform say it will threaten cherished rights and deepen job insecurity for young people by helping companies fire staff arbitrarily. Henry Samuel and Raziye Akkoc of The Telegraph observed:
The government believes it will create thousands of jobs but the IMF, and the French opposition say the reform doesn’t go nearly far enough to significantly reverse record unemployment, now at 10%, and soaring public debt, due to reach 98% of GDP next year.
What Lies Ahead
This is the first time a Socialist French government has faced a nationwide trade union rebellion in more than 30 years. The left’s opposition to the reforms has been vast, threatening to tear apart Hollande’s own support base.
The Independent Writes:
The proposed reform has compounded the fury of many within the Socialist Party and the further left at what they see as the treacherous, rightward course of the Hollande-Valls government. The protests have been led by the former Socialist leader, and “mother” of the 35-hour week, Martine Aubry, who has resigned from all her official positions within the party. Aubry complains that the rewriting of French employment law in line with “liberal” pro-market dogma is a betrayal of the French “social contract.”
An online petition against the proposed changes has gathered over 1 million signatures, a record in France. According to a recent Le Parisien poll, a majority of French people favor labor reforms, but 70% oppose the government’s way of going about it.
It will be a political suicide for Hollande if he rolls back the labor reform – he has promised he will not run for re-election next year unless he manages to stem the rise in unemployment. But as The Guardian rightly notes, it is not just Hollande’s political survival at stake, though, but the image of France itself.
Obama Admits The Government Monitors Your Browsing History
by Tyler Durden - Jun 5, 2016 1:27 PM
During a PBS town hall meeting, president Obama was asked why he and Hillary want to control and restrict guns and ammunition to responsible gun owners. Obama's response was the typical stock answer of rejecting the "notion" that anyone is hell-bent on taking away "folks' guns", yada yada.
However, as AllOutdoor notes, if you listen carefully to Obama's full response, there is a comment Obama gives about knowing browser history that should sent everyone into a blind rage.
"I just came from a meeting, today, in the situation room, in which I’ve got people who we know have been on ISIL websites living here in the United States - US citizens. And we’re allowed to put them on the no fly list when it comes to airlines, but because of the National Rifle Association I cannot prohibit those people from buying guns!"
Based on browser history - pardon? What the president just confirmed is that someone from the government is noting everyone's browsing history, determining which websites are not to be visited, and furthermore, if someone does visit the website for whatever reason they get put on a no fly list.
The Anonymous Conservative goes on an epic rant about this revelation.
Now, how are they finding out who is visiting those websites? How big is the unit watching that? What websites are considered verboten by the Fedguv? Who determines the status of a website? Do they have a warrant to surveil what websites people are visiting? Is there any oversight, by any elected body? Nobody knows, because that section of the government is completely hidden from everyone’s view, and the media will never dare ask, for some unimaginable reason.
Imagine how powerful the machine is, that it is actually aware of who is looking at what online. Imagine how powerful the machine is, that an airline executive picks up the phone to hear a disembodied voice say, “You aren’t going to sell this guy a plane ticket today.” No airline asks questions, and nobody asks for a court order or government document. Imagine the power, that the American media dare not mention anything about it. Everyone just jumps to do what they are told. What does the government have on the airline people, the media, the politicians, that everyone will be so blindly obedient, and never even act as if the beast stalking them could possibly exist?
This isn't necessarily shocking, but it should get people to understand that the government does in fact know much more than they let on. After all, this NSA data center in Utah wasn't built for nothing...
ANTI-FREE-SPEECH LAW MEANS JAIL, FINES – EVEN FOR WEBSITES
'It's not American. It's not democratic and it's certainly not constitutional'
Published: June 3, 2016
Dr. Deborah Nucatola talked openly about partial birth abortion and compensation for baby body parts in the first undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress.
Pro-life activists are finding common cause with media organizations and even some pro-“choice” supporters in an effort to stop California legislation they say would not only wound the cause for life but strike lethal blows to the First Amendment to the Constitution.
At issue is AB 1671 authored by State Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, D-Los Angeles. The bill, already approved by the appropriations committee, would ban secretly recording conversations with health-care providers and releasing them via media or social media in any way. Violators, and anyone who assists them, could face substantial financial penalties and jail time.
“The bill will ultimately provide penalties up to $10,000 and a year in jail for anybody who would not only film a ‘confidential conversation,’ which has a very broad definition, with any Planned Parenthood or abortion facility or abortionist, but also anyone who distributes that footage,” said Live Action President Lila Rose, who herself rose to prominence posing as a pregnant teenager in undercover videos at Planned Parenthood facilities.
She told WND and Radio America the implications of this law, if passed, are chilling.
“That means if Radio America or Fox News or even CNN were to somehow play any part of that video, they as distributors of it and reporting on it, would also be held liable and be up for criminal penalty,” Rose said.
And it’s not just media outlets that could be prosecuted. Anyone who re-tweets such a video would be fair game.
“This isn’t just about the individual investigative journalist. This is about anyone on social media, anyone in print or news or broadcasting, who then goes on to publicize what the findings of the investigative journalists were,” Rose said. “It’s an incredible assault on freedom of speech, quite frankly, and, of course, freedom of the press.”
Rose said there is no doubt the legislation is an urgent reaction to last year’s undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress, in which Planned Parenthood officials casually discuss killing unborn children and negotiate the prices for babies’ body parts.
“It’s absolutely in response to the word getting out about Planned Parenthood’s abusive activities,” Rose said. “That includes CMP’s blockbuster exposing of Planned Parenthood in California, and executives like Dr. Mary Gatter in Pasadena discussing the sale and manipulation of the abortion procedure at Planned Parenthood in order to have more sellable parts.”
The bill passed 14-6 in committee. Rose cannot say the fight against the bill will be successful given the liberal makeup of the California Legislature and the many abortion lobbyists in Sacramento. Still, she is encouraged by some unlikely allies in this particular fight, such as the California Newspaper Publishers Association, the California Broadcaster’s Association and even the Motion Picture Association.
“All of them are opposing the bill, saying, ‘This is crazy. This means if we publish any of this footage, all of a sudden we are culpable and we are going to be up for criminal penalty,” Rose said. “It’s not American. It’s not democratic and it’s certainly not constitutional.”
While the immediate battle is concerning enough, Rose sees this fight as the latest manifestation of the left trying to criminalize and ostracize speech that opposes liberal doctrine.
“It’s really dangerous to see this thread in our country that’s expanding, where a group of people do not think straight, are not logical and have certain ideologies,” Rose said. “In the name of tolerance, they’re shutting down any voice that comes up against them. It’s a full-out battle in our country right now for hearts and minds, and we all need to be fighting that battle.”
She said the group’s recent videos succinctly explaining what happens during abortions have received 44 million views in the past 90 days. Rose said Live Action is looking to bring its pro-life message to millions of Americans one at a time.
“We really need to put the building blocks in place so that people know the truth: the truth about abortion, what it does to the child, how it hurts women,” she said. “They know the truth about the abortion industry. We give them those fundamental facts in a strategic, compelling way. Then we can win elections and then we can change the course of the nation, but it starts one heart and one mind at a time.”
Fukushima: Worse Than a Disaster
by ROBERT HUNZIKER
Disasters can be cleaned up.
Naohiro Masuda, TEPCO Chief of Decommissioning at Fukushima Diiachi Nuclear Power Plant, finally publicly “officially” announced that 600 tons of hot molten core, or corium, is missing (Fukushima Nuclear Plant Operator Says 600 Tons of Melted Fuels is Missing, Epoch Times, May 24, 2016).
According to Gregory Jaczko, former head of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), it is not likely the fuel will ever be recovered: “Nobody really knows where the fuel is at this point, and this fuel is still very radioactive and will be for a long time.”
A big part of the problem is that nobody has experience with a Fukushima-type meltdown, which now appears to be 100% meltdown, possibly burrowed into the ground, but nobody really knows for sure.
What’s next is like a trip into The Twilight Zone.
“The absolutely uncontrollable fission of the melted nuclear fuel assemblies continue somewhere under the remains of the station. ’It’s important to find it as soon as possible,’ acknowledged Masuda, admitting that Japan does not yet possess the technology to extract the melted uranium fuel,” (600 Tons of Melted Radioactive Fukushima Fuel Still Not Found, Clean-Up Chief Reveals, RT, May 24, 2016).
Nuclear fission is when atoms split apart into smaller atoms. With nuclear bombs, fission must happen extremely quickly to charge a large explosion whereas, in a nuclear reactor, fission must happen very slowly to make heat, which, in turn, is used to boil water to make steam to turn a turbine to generate electricity.
Eventually, by rubbing two sticks together, one can boil water, but modern-day society doesn’t have the patience, which means accepting risks leaps and bounds beyond rubbing two sticks together. Welcome to an altered world.
Even if Masuda’s cleanup crew find the missing 600 tons, which is so highly radioactive that workers cannot even get close enough to inspect the immediate areas, then they need to construct, out-of-midair, the technology to extract it, and then what? It’s guesswork. It’s what modern-day society has been reduced to, guesswork. Toss out rubbing two sticks together and build monstrous behemoths for billions to boil water, and when it goes wrong, guess what to do next. What’s wrong with this picture? Well, to start with, nobody knows what to do when all hell breaks loose.
They do not have the technology to extract it!
In 1986, Russian teams of workers found the melted corium of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant’s reactor core in the facility’s lowest level. Whilst “frying 30 workers” along the way, they contained it just enough to prevent burrowing into the ground, maybe.
During containment work at Chernobyl, a makeshift robotic camera managed to actually photograph the monster, the melted core, nicknamed “the Elephant’s Foot.” Thirty years after the fact, the “Elephant’s Foot” is still lethal.
By way of comparing/contrasting Chernobyl and Fukushima, extraordinarily high radiation zaps and destroys robots at first sight when sent into Fukushima’s containment vessels. It’s kinda like the Daleks in Doctor Who.
Whereas, thirty years after the fact, Chernobyl seems to have found a solution to the elephant’s foot menace to society, but as for Fukushima, they must first locate 600 tons of hot stuff. That may be an impossible task. Then what?
“Thirty years after the Chernobyl nuclear accident, there’s still a significant threat of radiation from the crumbling remains of Reactor 4. But an innovative, €1.5 billion super-structure is being built to prevent further releases, giving an elegant engineering solution to one of the ugliest disasters known to man,” Claire Corkhill, PhD, University of Sheffield, New Tomb Will Make Chernobyl Site Safe for 100 Years, Phys.Org, April 22, 2016.
As it happens, the older collapsing sarcophagus for Chernobyl is being replaced by a brand new enormous steel frame: “Thanks to the sarcophagus, up to 80% of the original radioactive material left after the meltdown remains in the reactor. If it were to collapse, some of the melted core, a lava-like material called corium, could be ejected into the surrounding area in a dust cloud, as a mixture of highly radioactive vapour and tiny particles blown in the wind. The key substances in this mixture are iodine-131, which has been linked to thyroid cancer, and cesium-137, which can be absorbed into the body, with effects ranging from radiation sickness to death depending on the quantity inhaled or ingested,” Ibid
“The Elephant’s Foot could be the most dangerous piece of waste in the world,” (Chernobyl’s Hot Mess, “the Elephant’s Foot,” is Still Lethal, Nautilus, Science Connect, Dec. 4, 2013). It’s a highly charged radioactive massive hunk of goo that will not die or waste away. This could be a Doctor Who script, par excellence! Therein exist the soft underbelly, the vulnerability, and the risks of using nuclear power to boil water, or alternatively, the sun and wind could be used. They’re not radioactive and still much faster than rubbing two sticks together.
Fukushima is three times (3x) Chernobyl, maybe more; however, in Fukushima’s case there’s a distinct possibility that its white-hot sizzling corium has already started burrowing into Earth. Thereafter, let your imagination run wild because nobody has any idea of how that ends, if ever!
But, Einstein knew. Here’s a famous Einstein quote: “The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking, and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophes.”
We’re finally there!
Gregory Jackzo, former head of the NRC, ponders the security of nuclear power: “You have to now accept that in all nuclear power plants, wherever they are in the world … that you can have this kind of a very catastrophic accident, and you can release a significant amount of radiation and have a decade long cleanup effort on your hands” (Epoch Times).
Looking ahead a few years, the question remains: Where will the sizzling white-hot melted corium be when the Tokyo Olympics arrive in 2020?
Still, Prime Minister Abe told the Olympic selection committee that Fukushima was “under control.”
“This debate has dogged him since his Sept. 7 speech to the International Olympic Committee, when he said the nuclear disaster is “under control.” The next day, Tokyo won hosting rights for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games,” (Tsuyoshi Inajjma and Yuriy Humber, Abe Olympic Speech On Fukushima Contradicts Nuclear Plant Design, Bloomberg, Oct. 23, 2013).
“French authorities are investigating payments worth around $2m to a company linked to the son of former world athletics chief Lamine Diack over alleged connections to Japan’s successful bid to host the 2020 Olympic Games,” (Tokyo Olympics Bid Questioned as Prosecutors Probe $2M Payouts, The Financial Times, May 12, 2016).
Japan won the right to host the 2020 Olympics with a bid to spend $5 billion, which is suspiciously small, especially in an historical context. For the record, rival Istanbul’s bid was almost $20 billion, a much more realistic commitment for such a momentous worldly event.
Thusly, with mucho “balls-in-the-air,” one has to wonder if PM Abe’s infamous secrecy law will click into play, in other words, is there any way it can impede investigations? After all, the law allows any Japanese politician to put an offender behind bars for 10 years for breaking state secrets, which are (very embarrassingly) whatever the accuser claims to be “secretive.” After all, prima facie, between Fukushima and the Olympics, there could be a lot of secretive stuff going on behind the scenes.
Japan’s state secrecy law Act on the Protection of Specially Designated Secrets (SDS) Act No. 108 of 2013 passed on the heels of the Fukushima meltdown, is very similar to Japan’s harsh Public Peace and Order Controls of WWII (a real doozy). According to Act No. 108, the “act of leaking itself” is bad enough for prosecution, regardless of what, how, or why. Absolutely, if someone “leaks,” they’re going to “the can.”
Susumu Murakoshi, president of the Japan Federation of Bar Associations dissents: “The law should be abolished because it jeopardizes democracy and the people’s right to know,” Abe’s Secrets Law Undermines Japan’s Democracy, The Japan Times, Dec. 13, 2014.
The Japan Times needs to fact-check the definition of democracy.
US bid to grow human organs for transplant inside pigs
By Fergus Walsh
6 June 2016
This pregnant sow is carrying human-pig chimera embryos
Scientists in the United States are trying to grow human organs inside pigs.
They have injected human stem cells into pig embryos to produce human-pig embryos known as chimeras.
The embryos are part of research aimed at overcoming the worldwide shortage of transplant organs.
The team from University of California, Davis says they should look and behave like normal pigs except that one organ will be composed of human cells.
The human-pig chimeric embryos are being allowed to develop in the sows for 28 days before the pregnancies are terminated and the tissue removed for analysis.
Creating a chimera
Creating the chimeric embryos takes two stages. First, a technique known as CRISPR gene editing is used to remove DNA from a newly fertilised pig embryo that would enable the resulting foetus to grow a pancreas.
This creates a genetic "niche" or void. Then, human induced pluripotent (iPS) stem cells are injected into the embryo. The iPS cells were derived from adult cells and "dialled back" to become stem cells capable of developing into any tissue in the body.
Boxing legend Muhammad Ali dies at 74

Boxing legend Muhammad Ali has died at the age of 74, a family spokesman confirmed.
The three-time heavyweight boxing champion had been at a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, since Thursday with a serious respiratory issue.
Ali had also been struggling with advanced Parkinson's disease since 1984. The Olympic gold medalist’s breathing condition was also attributed to his Parkinson's disease.
“After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening,” family spokesman Bob Gunnell said in a statement late on Friday.
“The Ali family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and support and asks for privacy at this time.”
The funeral will take place in Ali's home town of Louisville, Kentucky.
Gunnell had said earlier in the day that Ali was in fair condition at an undisclosed hospital in Phoenix.
Ali was born in Louisville as Cassius Clay in January 1942. He began boxing when he was 12 years old and became heavyweight champion in 1964, the year he joined the “Nation of Islam” and changed his name.
He proceeded to win the heavyweight title twice more before retiring from boxing in 1981.
Generally referred to as one of the greatest boxing heavyweights of all time, Ali was known for his highly unusual fighting style which involved dazzling speed, lightning-fast reflexes and constant movement around his opponents.
This is why ancient Egyptians referred to Aloe Vera as the 'plant of immortality'
Tuesday, June 07, 2016 by: David Gutierrez, staff writer
(NaturalNews) In ancient Egypt, Aloe vera was known as the "plant of immortality," and it's easy to see why. In addition to its well known use as a first aid ointment for minor burns, cuts and scrapes, aloe is also useful for a variety of other medicinal and nutritive uses, both external and internal.
Aloe vera is native to Africa and parts of the Middle East, and has a history as a herbal remedy in those regions stretching back thousands of years. In the 18th and 19th century, it was one of the most commonly prescribed remedies even by Western doctors. It remains one of the most popular and widely used remedies to this day.
Healing and hydrating
The gel derived from aloe vera leaves is a remarkable healing substance. It is approximately 95 percent water, and the other 5 percent has high levels of anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial enzymes. This accounts for much of its usefulness in treating minor skin injuries, including burns; that extends to sunburns, as well. In fact, aloe's ability to hydrate and seal the skin makes it a particularly effective sunburn remedy.
Aloe's healing and hydrating qualities also make it a great substitute for shaving creams or gels – it both nourishes the skin and helps heal it from tiny cuts or abrasions caused by shaving. For this use, aloe can also be mixed with almond or eucalyptus oil.
Aloe's external uses aren't limited to first aid. It can also be used as a makeup remover – just a small dollop of gel can be placed on a cotton ball and used to cleanse the skin. Aloe-soaked cotton balls can also be refrigerated and then used as compresses for puffy eyes.
The plant's healing and antimicrobial characteristics also work on the inside of your mouth, healing mouth ulcers (canker sores), removing plaque and eliminating or preventing bad breath.
Internal use even more potent
But unlike many herbal remedies, aloe vera gel can also be used as a superfood. It contains a variety of minerals – including calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, selenium and zinc – that provide essential nutrients and help boost metabolic function. In contains 20 of the 22 essential amino acids, and the vitamins A, C, E, choline, folic acid, B1, B2, B3 and B6. It even contains B12, a vitamin that typically is only found in animal foods (and that therefore can be hard for people on vegan diets to get enough of). Aloe also seems to contain compounds that boost the body's absorption and use of vitamin B12.
In fact, aloe vera gel contains more than 200 biologically active constituents, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, polysaccharides and enzymes. The enzymes include amylase and lipase, which help digest sugar and fat, and bradykinase, an anti-inflammatory. Aloe vera also contains salicylic acid, the active ingredient that makes willow bark a painkiller, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial (and from which aspirin is derived).
Taken internally, aloe can help fight infection, boost the immune system, aid digestion, remove toxic material from the digestive organs, and relieve inflammation in the joints and gut.
Aloe vera gel can be purchased at most health food stores. You can also make it yourself from the fresh leaves of the plant, which is sold in many grocery stores and can be grown potted or in a garden. Simply juice either the whole leaves or the inner filet of the leaves. For external first aid, the leaves can also simply be sliced open and laid on the cut, scrape or burn to be treated.
As aloe vera gel has a slightly bitter taste, some people prefer to mix it into smoothies or other beverages.
