Checkmate: From global makeover to takeover

By Douglas J. Hagmann

7 May 2013:

We're rapidly approaching a potential checkmate moment in the Mideast. There are 41 nations plus the U.S., for a total of 42 nations currently participating in military maneuvers off the coast of Iran. Despite all of the saber rattling about Iran, we are being deceived about the coming global battle, which will almost certainly begin in Syria, not Iran.

What we are seeing is both deadly serious and under-appreciated by most Westerners, who have grown weary of wars and rumors of wars in the Mideast long ago. Exhaustion aside, the events continue to march forward, the consolidation of forces and interests are forming until that final moment when we will have a single group of tyrannical global controllers left standing. A checkmate moment, where the aspirations of the globalists will have succeeded in a plan of global domination, consolidation of power, energy and wealth, all obtained from the blood and bodies of our family members fighting a war without our consent.

It was during the darkest hours of last Sunday morning, during the time that exists when sunrise seems so distant and the stillness of the night that keeps most of humanity in the Western hemisphere in a deep slumber. It was then I began to contemplate the best way to report the complexities behind the recent bombings near Damascus of missile storage facilities and the missiles themselves by Israel. Even at this early hour, the media already had their talking points well refined, preparing to hold captive their audience by asserting that the strikes took place in the readily accepted historical context of a limited Israeli action against their regional Arab enemy protagonists. A short, sharp, precise operation with a beginning and an end all in a tidy time period. Except it's not. Not this time. We are seeing something much different... a step in the path to global war.

I was troubled by this inaccurate description of events, like many of you who are reading this, as we know that what we are seeing is part of something much larger and much more ominous take place. It was here, on this very site that I wrote about the beginning of World War III... and that it would not start with Iran, but with Syria. The death race to Damascus by an agenda so nefarious that it could only be ascribed to an unseen evil. Yet, my treatise was called hyperbole by some, and described as the writings of an alarmist by others. While I discount the former, I happily embrace characterizations of the latter knowing that we are witnessing events that cannot be "walked back." We are watching the end stages of a larger agenda play out before us, while those in power and the media want us to believe otherwise.

It was during this darkness that I decided to turn on my television for updates from the media with which most Americans are so enamored, and by which they are so controlled. At this early hour, I stumbled across an infomercial selling DVDs of old television variety shows from a seemingly much simpler time, momentarily taking me away from my task.

Perhaps caught up by the motion of a man spinning several plates atop wooden sticks, my German Shepherd suddenly awoke from his light slumber and looked at the on-screen motion that seemed to be a staple of variety shows of the 1960′s. His gaze was captivated by the spinning motion of the plates and the man frantically moving from one side of the table to the other, trying to keep all of the plates spinning and airborne while adding even more. I watched my dog as he seemed mesmerized, staring at the television without even blinking for at least a full minute.

When the man finally lost control of the spinning plates and they all crashed to the floor amid the guffaws of the audience, my eyes met those of my Shepherd, who was now looking at me as if to ask what that was all about. It was actually an out-take of an act that was never broadcast, replaced instead by the successful act that concluded with all plates intact.

I suppose that seeing the reality of the events that never aired was the major selling point of the DVD. The things that are not broadcast during normal programming; the messes, the mistakes, breakage and what really takes place behind the scenes, but is carefully screened from the audience. I noticed that this man had two or three assistants who stood just outside of visual range, hidden from view, who quickly came to his aid after the broadcast feed was cut and once the curtain that separated the actor from the audience was closed. For my dog, however, the visual spell was broken once the plates stopped spinning and crashed to the floor.

There it is, I thought, in the dark of night and outside of the normal viewing times of network television, is the broader explanation of the events currently unfolding on the world stage.

The plate spinning of the Obama-Saudi-globalist cabal

If one looks beyond the two dimensionality of the media and the talking points from Washington, the three dimensional aspect of current events begins to emerge. Like the plate spinner whose first act began with one single plate on a stick, so too did the so-called "Arab Spring," which would be more appropriately named the "Globalist Spring." After the audience warm up act in Tunisia, the complete act opened with Egypt, after which more plates from the Obama-Saudi-Globalist agenda were added, further captivating the attention of the world.

Like my just-awakened dog and the on-screen action that captivated his stare, people have been watching the spinner add more and more plates, awestruck at this exhibit of talent. The audience anticipates a successful conclusion to this marvelous feat of balance and dexterity and is ready to cheer when the spinner removes the plates from their thin balancing posts, and the act successfully concludes neat and tidy to the television audience, with nothing broken.

Obama himself could be compared to the visible plate spinner in this act known as the Arab Spring. "Globalist Spring," that is, where the fate of nations, like plates atop thin sticks, are spun as props entertaining a global audience.  Captivating the world by the many plates on sticks, he is the front man entertaining the world audience while the producers, the media and the globalists, quickly edit out any missteps, or broken plates, keeping the reality from the captive audience. Some breakage, however, cannot be edited out by the media and must be explained away in a different manner. Such was the case with Benghazi, and as is the case with the Israeli airstrikes on the missiles in Syria. Their explanation in place of edits transcend the realm of perception to that of deception.

While the globalist controlled media and power elite do their best to divert the public's attention from Benghazi and attempt to convince their captive audience that the Israeli missile strikes are limited, localized events, the truth is that both occurred during the same stage act. Different plates, but the stage and the show are the same.

Obama, the visible plate spinner, like his TV counterpart, has a revolving cadre of out-of-sight assistants that have included Hillary Rodham Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, and a long list of others. In addition to his assistants, we must also consider the executive producers for the show now underway. Some refer to them as the puppet masters, other, the paymasters. However defined, they are the ultimate producers of this and all of the stage acts we are seeing. They are the individuals who control the money and wealth, and now want to not only control, but own the future.

While the masses continue to watch the balancing act, what is taking place offstage that we're not supposed to be seeing?

For those not as easily entertained...

Readers might recall my many reports about Benghazi, and that this entire operation was nothing more than a covert weapons-running operation to arm anti-Assad terrorists to destabilize and take down the Syrian government. Whether we refer to it as "Death Race Damascus" or "Obama's real-world game of Risk," the operation has placed the world in the beginning stages of World War III. Notice that the Israeli missile strikes took place just outside of Damascus, and Syria is Russia's "red line" in the sand.

Benghazi and the Israeli strikes near Damascus are not unrelated. The Israeli attacks in Syria are collateral effects of our covert operations throughout the Middle East and North Africa and in that manner, tangentially related to Benghazi. Benghazi was, and is, all about Syria. And Syria is not Iraq or Afghanistan, or even Egypt or Libya. Those countries imploded, while Syria is set to explode, and therefore enjoin other nations into a regional and ultimately, a world war.

For this reason, people need to fully understand the significance and secrets that full disclosure about Benghazi would reveal. You see, opening the curtains to expose the planners and producers of the Benghazi stage act would reveal secrets so closely held that it threatens the agenda of the Obama regime who are working on behalf of the Saudis and their globalist handlers. Such a misstep of full disclosure about Benghazi could cause a critical setback of an agenda advancing across the world stage where timing is critical.

For those not easily entertained or intellectually challenged by spinning plates, the situation playing out before us may also be compared to a game of three dimensional chess. Using this analogy, we are able to view the multi-dimensional board and the movement of chess pieces required to set up World War III. One board consists of players involving North Korea, Japan and China, while the second of three boards represents the entirety of the Middle East, and all of the proxy nations of China, Russia and the United States.  But what about the elusive but critically important third board? It is on this level where the real story exists.

The third board: Who benefits?

It is here that one must pay very close attention to everything that is not being reported over the very visible reports we are intended to see. As I have asserted many times, we are in the midst of a proxy war that has created some very unusual alliances, and some very dangerous opposition. Superpower nations are using allied nation-states to fight battles in order to jockey for their ultimate fighting positions. You can read about these alliances and the minutia of the battles elsewhere. Here, I am attempting to draw your attention to the larger picture, the end result, and the end game scenario... because the key to understanding the alliances and actions exists and only make sense in the larger picture of this 3-D global chess game.

The third board represents a field of play that is virtually misunderstood by most and therefore, rarely mentioned in the context of the nation building and reconfiguration we have watched unfold over the last several years. It is a process underway for a reason, but not for any of the noble causes we are being told to believe.

It is at this level where a select group of people are making their moves that prompt those of all others. It is at this level that the international bankers, the globalists, the secret cabal of unseen forces are at work and playing to win. It involves a currency war, and a currency war is as much a war as one with bombs and bullets. We can see it with the international transfer of wealth. the manipulation of the gold reserves, and in other areas - but only if we look.

Quite simply, the motives behind global conflict can be found within the military-industrial complex operated at the highest levels of the internationalists, the bankers and financiers - the same surnames have been present in nearly all conflicts throughout history.

There is a firewall that exists between these global power elite and their objectives. It is a sovereign United States of America, much as it always has been in modern times. Now, however, we have been weakened from within, and our sovereignty is being significantly eroded through multiple and tenacious assaults against our freedoms and liberties. This is the result of a collective acquiescence and our lack of resistance to tyranny disguised as security, and immorality in many forms presented as tolerance. We are thus left in a weakened state, with a collective majority unable to think clearly or fight to regain the Godly values upon which our nation was founded. This has been by design, not default.

As our national moral compass has been compromised, so too has our ability to recognize the other assaults to our sovereignty, or our willingness to speak out against our own destruction. Specifically, we have an occupant of the White House who, by the admission of an unnamed senior member of his own staff, has an agenda to "kill the U.S. dollar," the most widely held currency in the allocated reserves of many nations. On what planet, on which stage, in what venue does the killing of our national currency make any sense whatsoever? That is a question that has yet to be answered.

The only sense one could possibly make of this treasonous act is the ultimate destruction of the United States as a nation, as the last firewall of freedom. Who better to usher in our demise, then, is a man whose past is shrouded in mystery, and whose future intent is becoming clearer with each passing day. Ultimately, though, who would benefit from our destruction? Who benefits from a third world war, where millions will most certainly perish. The answer is clear, as we see parallel agendas of wars fought with bullets and bombs, and wars fought with food and wealth.

Once the plates stop spinning and nations have fallen, or the chessboard is cleared of the pawns, the only clear winners will be the architects who are behind this global perversity of power realignment. The winners will be the power elite, whose goal has always been to lock in their future by taking away ours. They will usher in a global currency, and ultimately control the wealth of the world not only for this generation, but for future generations.

So, while your focus is being directed to the flash-bangs of bombings designed to leave you stunned, understand the real objective. It's a fight for the future - your future - and the future of your offspring, who we have permitted to be sold into bondage through perpetual shooting wars and money wars. It is imperative that you see we are in the beginning stages of a global makeover, and prepare accordingly.

42 Syrian soldiers dead in reported Israeli strike, opposition group says

From Frederik Pleitgen. Sara Sidner and Hada Messia CNN

May 6, 2013

Damascus, Syria (CNN) -- Concern over the possibility of broader war in the Middle East grew Monday in the wake of reported airstrikes on Syrian military installations.

The reported strikes killed 42 Syrian soldiers, the opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday, citing medical sources. It said 100 people remained missing.

The Syrian government warned Sunday's apparent strikes -- which followed one last week attributed by Syria to Israel -- "opens the door wide for all the possibilities."

Syrian ally Iran warned of a "crushing response" while Russia called reports of Israeli involvement "very worrying."

The heightened tensions come amid questions over possible chemical weapon use in Syria and international debate over how to respond to the country's bloody civil war, in which more than 70,000 people have died in more than two years of fighting.

On Monday, a U.N. official spoke of strong suspicions that rebels, not Syrian government forces, have used chemical weapons.

Details of reported strikes

Syria claimed Israeli missiles struck at its military facilities on Sunday.

According to the state-run SANA news agency, Israeli missiles struck a research center in Jamayra, a facility in Maysaloun and what the news agency described as a "paragliding airport" near Damascus.

The blasts prompted terrified residents nearby to run for cover.

"Everything kept exploding over and over again," said Anna Deeb, whose family lives just over a mile away. "We could hear gunshots, we could hear people screaming. ... We didn't know what to do, and there was a problem with us breathing because the smoke was too much."

Syria says the attack followed another Israeli airstrike late last week.

U.S. officials said last week that they believed Israel had conducted an airstrike against Syria on Thursday or Friday.

Israel has not confirmed or denied that its forces were involved in any attacks inside Syria.

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mekdad told CNN the attack amounted to a declaration of war by Israel.

"The details are not clear on what happened," al-Mekdad told CNN. "Did they fire missiles? ... It is not clear for me, because I don't know how it happened, and of course it is worrying, but Israel will suffer the same."

'Watching everything'

While Israel has not acknowledged responsibility for the attacks, the country has long said it would target any transfer of weapons to Hezbollah or other terrorist groups.

"We are watching everything when it comes to the movement of these types of weapons. We have the means to do that," a senior Israeli defense official told CNN's Sara Sidner on Sunday. The official is not authorized to speak to the media.

Shaul Mofaz, a lawmaker in Israel's Knesset, told Israeli Army Radio on Sunday that Israel isn't meddling with Syria's civil war. But Israel must protect itself from Lebanese militants, he said.

"For Israel, it is very important that the front group for Iran, which is in Lebanon, needs to be stopped," Mofaz said.

International response

Hezbollah did not immediately comment after Sunday's claims.

Syrian ally Iran said will stand by Syria, "and if there is need for training, we will provide them with necessary training," Brig. Gen. Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan, commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces, told reporters Sunday.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said he had no doubt Syria and its allies will "give a crushing response to the aggressions of the Zionists," the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

Russia also weighed in Monday, with a Foreign Ministry spokesman calling the reports of Israeli strikes "very worrying."

"Any intensification of military confrontation greatly increases the risks of creating hotbeds of tension aside from Syria, in Lebanon, and also destabilizing the Israeli-Lebanese border, which has so far remained relatively calm," ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said Monday.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told reporters Monday that the alliance had no information on the reported airstrikes, but said the alliance remains concerned about the possibility that the conflict could spread beyond Syria's borders.

"It's not a new concern that for quite some time we have expressed concerned of the risk of spillover of this conflict," he said.

Chemical weapons reports

The tensions have been worsened by conflicting reports on the possible use of chemical weapons in Syria.

On Monday, a U.N. official said evidence points to the use of the deadly nerve agent sarin by Syrian rebel forces.

Carla Del Ponte told an Italian-Swiss TV station that the findings come after interviews with doctors and Syrian victims now in neighboring countries.

Del Ponte, the commissioner of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry for Syria, said the notion isn't surprising, given the infiltration of foreign fighters into the Syrian opposition.

Rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad said rebels don't even have unconventional weapons, nor do they want any.

"In any case, we don't have the mechanism to launch these kinds of weapons, which would need missiles that can carry chemical warheads, and we in the FSA do not possess these kind of capabilities," Almokdad said.

"More importantly, we do not aspire to have (chemical weapons) because we view our battle with the regime as a battle for the establishment of a free democratic state. ... We want to build a free democratic state that recognizes and abides by all international accords and agreements -- and chemical and biological warfare is something forbidden legally and internationally."

Intelligence claims

The claim of rebels using sarin gas comes after months of suspicions that the Syrian regime has used the same nerve agent against rebels.

Last week, the United States said its intelligence analysts had concluded "with varying degrees of confidence" that chemical weapons had been used in Syria and that the regime of President Bashar al-Assad was the likely culprit.

In April, the head of Israeli military's intelligence research said the Syrian government is using chemical weapons against rebel forces.

"In all likelihood they used sarin gas," Brig. Gen. Itai Brun said.

The Free Syrian Army's chief of staff has also said the Syrian regime has used sarin in cities such as Homs, Aleppo and Otaiba, outside Damascus.

"We took some samples of the soil and of blood. The injured people were observed by doctors, and the samples were tested, and it was very clear that the regime used chemical weapons," Gen. Salim Idriss told CNN's Christiane Amanpour last month.

Sarin gas can be hard to detect because it is colorless, odorless and tasteless. But it can cause severe injuries to those exposed to it, including blurred vision, convulsions, paralysis and death.

Why Syria matters

The Syrian civil war has pitted rebel fighters against the regime run by al-Assad, whose family has ruled the country for four decades.

Syria matters to Iran because it is believed to be the main conduit to the Shiite militia Hezbollah in Lebanon, the proxy through which Iran can threaten Israel with an arsenal of short-range missiles.

In 2009, the top U.S. diplomat in Damascus disclosed that Syria had begun delivery of ballistic missiles to Hezbollah, according to official cables leaked to and published by WikiLeaks.

The last thing Iran wants is a Sunni-dominated Syria -- especially as the Syrian rebels' main supporters are Iran's Persian Gulf rivals: Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Hezbollah's feared scenario is Israel on one side and a hostile Sunni-led Syria on the other.

'Israel's aggression opens door to all possibilities' - Syrian Information Minister

May 05, 2013

Syria's information minister says that those who infringe on Syria's sovereignty must "study their choices carefully." He said that Israel has "proved its link to terrorist groups." Israel has reportedly launched two airstrikes against Syria in two days.

Omran al-Zoabi added that it is Damascus' duty to "protect the state from any domestic or foreign attack through all available means."

The minister's comments came after an emergency cabinet meeting organized to respond to what a Western source called a new strike on Iranian missiles bound for Lebanon's Hezbollah, Reuters reported.

The Arab League has condemned the alleged strike on Syria and urged the UN Security Council (UNSC) to "act immediately to end Israeli attacks on Syria," calling the alleged strikes a "dangerous violation of an Arab state's sovereignty."

This follows reports of condemnation from Egyptian, Lebanese and Iranian leaders. - - Syria's Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the UN and the UN Security Council protesting "Israeli aggression" that killed and wounded several people and "caused widespread destruction." It also said the attacks aimed "to give direct military support to terrorist groups" fighting the government. It called the strikes a "flagrant violation of international law" that have made the Middle East "more dangerous."

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said the attack proved that there is an alliance between Israel and Islamists trying to topple the Syrian government. In an interview with CNN he said the airstrikes are a "declaration of war" by Israel and that Syria would retaliate in its own time and way.

Egypt has also condemned the attack, saying it complicated a crisis that Cairo was trying to help resolve. The Egyptian government said in a statement that the strike was a violation of international law and a threat to the regional security.

The Obama administration is fully supportive of Israeli airstrikes on Syria, US officials and diplomatic sources told NBC News.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has voiced alarm over the reports, but said the UN was able to confirm whether the attacks took place.

"The Secretary-General expresses grave concern over reports of air strikes in Syria by the Israeli Air Force," Ban's press office said in a statement.

"At this time, the United Nations does not have details of the reported incidents," it said. "Nor is the United Nations in a position to independently verify what has occurred."

It added that Ban "calls on all sides to exercise maximum calm and restraint, and to act with a sense of responsibility to prevent an escalation of what is already a devastating and highly dangerous conflict."

'Israel is protecting its interests and will continue doing so'

Speaking for the first time since the alleged strike, Israel's Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon told Army Radio, "The State of Israel is protecting its interest and will continue doing so. I am not confirming or denying the reports...we have said on various occasions in the past that we will do everything anywhere in order to protect those interests."

Senior correspondent for Israel's Haaretz newspaper, Amir Oren, said that Israel is "only trying to prevent and preempt further conflagration."

"While there are many reasons in other aspects to be critical of Israeli policy, it does seem that this time around it's quite balanced," he told RT. Oren added that Israel is merely trying to prevent another Lebanon war.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague agrees, saying that Israel has a right to defend itself.

"All countries have to look after their own national security, of course, and are able to take actions to protect their own national security," Hague told Sky News.

Hague added that the recent escalation in the conflict and Israel's airstrikes showed that the conflict risked spreading to the wider Middle East. He stressed once more that it was time to consider lifting the arms embargo on Syria's opposition.

Robert Fisk: The truth is that after Israel's air strikes, we are involved

If the EU and US say nothing about these attacks, approval is granted

Lights in the sky over Damascus. Another Israeli raid - "daring" of course, in the words of Israel's supporters, and the second in two days - on Bashar al-Assad's weaponry and military facilities and weapons stores. The story is already familiar: the Israelis wanted to prevent a shipment of Iranian-made Fateh-110 missiles reaching Hezbollah in Lebanon;  they were being sent by the Syrian government. According, at least, to a 'Western intelligence source'. Anonymous, of course. And it opens the old question: why when the Syrian regime is fighting for its life would it send advanced missiles out of Syria?

But the Syrians themselves have officially confirmed that military installations were hit by the Israelis. And not for the first time during the rebellion. The Fateh-110 - the new version, at least - has a range of perhaps 250km. And it could indeed reach Tel Aviv from southern Lebanon. If the Hezbollah has actually acquired any. But why would the Syrians send them, as US sources were also claiming last night, when the Americans themselves claimed only last December that the Syrians had used the same ground-to-ground missiles against rebel forces in Syria.

In other words, the Syrian regime was prepared to dispense with their rockets to Lebanon when they were already using them in the brutal war in Syria...  Now there are other questions to be asked. If the Syrian air force can use their MiGs so devastatingly - and at such civilian cost - against their enemies inside Syria, why couldn't they have sent their jets to protect Damascus and attack the Israeli aircraft? Isn't the Syrian air force supposed to be guarding Syria from Israel?  Or are the MiGs just not technically able to take on Israel's state-of-the-art (American) hardware? Or would that just be a step too far?

Much more important, however, is the salient fact that Israel has now intervened in the Syrian war.  It may say it was only aiming at weapons destined for the Hezbollah - but these were weapons also being used against rebel forces in Syria.  By diminishing the regime's supply of these weapons, it is therefore helping the rebels overthrow Bashar al-Assad. And since Israel regards itself as a Western nation - best friend and best US military ally in the Middle East, etc, etc - this means that "we" are now involved in the war, directly and from the air. 

Let's see if the US and the EU condemn Israel's air attacks. I doubt it. Which would mean, if we are silent, that we approve of them. Silence, to quote Sir Thomas More, gives consent.

So now the Iranians and Hizballah are accused of intervening in Syria - true, though not to quite extent we are led to believe - and Qatar and Saudi Arabia funnel weapons to the rebels - true, but not quite enough weapons, as the Syrian rebels will tell you - and the Israelis have joined in. We are now militarily involved.

A "68" MUSTANG ON THE NEUROLOGICAL HIGHWAYS OF A TRANSHUMANIST ARMAGEDDON

By Paul McGuire -

May 6, 2013 -

The average American cannot process the present, nor can they predict the future. They are in a state of sensory overload with their left brains overwhelmed by a continuous data stream of useless information. With few exceptions they are unable to access their right brains and so they are not in their right mind. This is all planned by the Luciferian elite, also known as the Illuminati, whose motto is "Order out of Chaos."

One way out is to drive faster than the chaos in your consciousness, as if actor Steve McQueen came back in time, driving his1968 390 V8 Ford Mustang GT fastback in the famous car chase scene shot in the hills and streets of San Francisco in the movie Bullitt.

You see, when you are in a mind war you can't take a stroll through the park. You are being hit by psychic weapons that you don't believe exist, like stroboscopic images of shock and awe. The elites use trauma based conditioning and endless images of horror, brutality, and porn, along with the Luciferian inversion of values and the meanings of words. Ancient covenants like marriage and the family have been turned upside down. The ancient wisdom of the gods of Babylon has been passed on the Rosicrucians to the Illuminati and it is being used to manufacture the chaos.

Scientific and occult censorship of the truth has erased all memories of Eden and the God who walked with man, and a Luciferian elite rule the planet through what H.G. Wells called the "world brain." The Pharaoh god-kings of Egypt are gathering their slaves to build a great pyramid once again...the same pyramid depicted on the back of the U.S. dollar, with the all-seeing eye of Horus, or Lucifer near the top of the pyramid. Below the pyramid, for all to see, are the words "Novus Ordo Seclorum," or "New Order of the Ages," which means New World Order. As the science fiction writer and head of British intelligence H.G. Wells said with the title of his book The Open Conspiracy, there is really nothing hidden about what is going on; it was announced long ago, but you cannot see it when your neurological highways have been closed.

This New World Order which the brainwashed masses and the Hollywood celebrities will run to for their salvation is a "New Aeon." The problem is that people do not know what that means. The New World Order is the same New World Order Adolph Hitler tried to create, built upon the premise that there is a genetically superior master race of god men or supermen who will rule the world through force. Everyone else will be their slaves.

Big Brother along with his public education and media has concealed the truth of history. Adolph Hitler was not some rogue lunatic; he was put in power and financed by powerful international bankers as a trial run towards their new world order. In the 1600s Sir Francis Bacon, a leader of the Rosicrucians, an occult society whose secret knowledge went back to Babylon, created the plan for America to become the "New Atlantis" and head of the "New World Order."

Part of the secret knowledge of the Rosicrucians was that Nimrod, the creator of Babylon, was a Nephilim. The DNA of Nimrod was part "sons of God," or fallen angel, and part human female. In short, Nimrod was a "god man." The father of the science of eugenics and genetics was Francis Galton, who was associated with the Lunar Circle, which was a Rosicrucian think tank. One of the founders of the Lunar Circle was the grandfather of Charles Darwin and the ideas of evolution were developed by the Lunar Circle before Darwin published them.

This society operated much like the hypothetical society developed by Sir Francis Bacon in his "New Atlantis." Origin of Species by Charles Darwin was used to attack Christianity and promote the idea of "survival of the fittest." The Nazis used this philosophy in attempting to create their race of supermen. But, the Nazis borrowed their ideas from experiments in eugenics partly funded by the Rockefellers.

The greatest obstacle to totalitarianism is truth: economic truth, political truth, scientific truth, social truth, sexual truth and theological truth. The truth that man is not here by random chance, as the Theory of Evolution proposes, is the basis for the inalienable rights given to us in the Declaration of Independence which states: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. "

The Founding Fathers believed that mankind was given inalienable rights, which means that the Creator gave mankind these rights and not any government. The idea that this Creator is good is implied by the words "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Totalitarian governments or the Illuminati pyramid system of total control produces slavery, where the slave is forced to receive a microchip or Mark of the Beast.

Joseph Goebbels was Adolph Hitler's Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany. Goebbels used powerful and emotional images along with stirring music to create the image of Hitler as the Messiah-figure and the father who would lead Germany out of economic chaos and back to greatness. Joseph Goebbels also used propaganda to demonize the Jews as sub-humans. Goebbels brainwashed the nation into seeing the Jews as the source of all their problems.

Big Brother governments operate through fear and mind control. Any group can be targeted, demonized and then destroyed. Through the propaganda of Goebbels and the Third Reich the Jews were portrayed as sub-human monsters worthy of death. This was the demonization process. Then they were given a yellow Star of David that they had to wear openly. The Germans had no problem sending them to the concentration camps to be killed, because they were already demonized as sub-human.

In America today we see Evangelical Christians and other groups being demonized by labeling them as "Religious Extremists." This is Phase One of the propaganda process. History shows us where this will lead, which is camps and extermination. The Jews were easy prey for Hitler and the Nazis because the Jews were in a severe state of psychological denial about what was happening plainly in front of them. However, Evangelical Christians have learned nothing from history and they are in the exact same state of denial as the Jews. Yet, the denial of Evangelical Christians is even more severe than the Jews. Supposedly Evangelical Christians have the Holy Spirit of Spirit of Truth in them, which is supposed to give them the ability to discern. In addition, a large percentage of Evangelical Christians do not read what they claim is the Word of God, which is the Bible. Instead, they follow leaders, many of whom have become celebrities. Many of these leaders, not all, are "gutless wonders." Their ignorance of history and their failure to perceive reality with any degree of intelligence is staggering. These words are not written to be unkind; they are simply an appraisal of shepherds who will not guard the flock from the wolves. But in the end this is what the people want. They want to worship their leaders like "the stars of Heaven" or like movie stars. This is idolatry because it is God and God alone who is to be worshipped, not the stars. When Nimrod built the Tower of Babel it was to worship the stars, or the host of Heaven.

We are now in a time period before the predicted Tribulation Period in the Book of Revelation. When Lucifer led a revolution against God with one third of the angels it was because he wanted to be God. When the serpent tempted Adam and Eve he promised them that "ye shall be as gods." The science of Transhumanism is now being used to create a new race of god men who will rule the earth. But there is a secret ingredient in the new DNA, for the DNA of fallen angels is being combined with that of human women, as in the case of the Nephilim, like Nimrod, although some believe that the DNA from aliens is being used to create a super race.

When Jesus Christ said the words "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man" he was speaking of interspecies breeding between the sons of God and human women, which produced a race of Nephilim before the Flood of Noah. This interspecies breeding between Nephilim DNA and human DNA is now going in our world today.

When you look at the back your dollar bill and see the pyramid with the all-seeing eye of Lucifer with the words "New World Order" at the base of the pyramid the meaning of the symbolism should come to life. At the very summit of the pyramid is a tiny pyramidion, representing the Luciferian elite or race of god men who will rule the New World Order, just as in the time of Babylon when a Nephilim ruled over the Tower of Babylon. So in the time period which the Bible calls the last days the Nephilim will rule over the New World Order.

When ordinary men are confronted with this information it overloads their neurological highways and produces cognitive dissonance because it is information that is outside the box of their programming. But if you look again you will see the evidence everywhere written in code. Going back to Babylon, Nimrod's wife Semiramis cut off his penis and killed him. She covered her tracks by telling the people that Nimrod had risen to the sky to become the Sun-god Ra.

Since she became pregnant through an affair after his death, she told the people that she became supernaturally impregnated by a phallic symbol. Thus the obelisk is a phallic symbol and a dome can represent the womb of Semiramis in the architecture of ancient civilizations. In America there is the Washington Monument, which is an obelisk and a phallic symbol, and the nation's capitol is the womb; this is mirrored in Vatican City.

But understanding this part of the code is essential for understanding the New World Order. Nimrod was a Nephilim and a type of Satan. Babylon comes to life again as a whore in the Book of Revelation. The phallic symbol monuments and the dome monuments are a reminder that there must be a supernatural impregnation. The seed of sperm from the fallen angels will impregnate human women once again. The New World Order is predicted in the Book of Revelation along with the one world government, one world economic system, and one world religion. The head of this world system is Lucifer, who rules through the Antichrist. The world falls under total scientific mind control and occult power through the False Prophet.

At a specific trigger point the true God will return with the armies of Heaven and begin the War of Armageddon against the Luciferian forces. This war will be a multidimensional conflict and involve interdimensional beings.

Missouri moving to protect parental rights from federal tyranny over medicine, education and discipline of children

by: J. D. Heyes

Friday, May 03, 2013

(NaturalNews) A number of Missouri lawmakers are supporting an amendment to the state constitution that essentially formalizes the fundamental right of parents to raise their children as they see fit.

In late April the House gave its approval to a measure, House Joint Resolution 26 (HJR26) that says parents have the right to make all decisions regarding the "discipline, education, religious instruction, health, medical care, place of habitation, and general well-being" for their own minor children.

Laying out the law - parents over the state

The measure says, in part:

Section 35.

1. That parents have a fundamental right to exercise exclusive control over the care, custody, and upbringing of their minor children, including all decisions involving the discipline, education, religious instruction, health, medical care, place of habitation, and general well-being of such minor children.

2. Parents have the right to choose to educate their children in public schools, private schools, or in-home education to prepare them for future obligations in life.

3. Neither the state nor any political subdivision, nor any agency, entity, or person acting on behalf of the state or any political subdivision, shall act to deny or impair the fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children. However, the fundamental right of a parent to control and direct the care, custody, and upbringing of a minor child may be modified by a court of law when a parent has been found guilty of or pleads guilty to a crime of violence against a child, abuse of a child, kidnaping of a child, abandonment of a child, sexual abuse of a child, sexual conduct or any other sexual offense against a child, criminal nonsupport, or endangering the welfare of a child; or when a parent has been found by a court of law by clear and convincing evidence to have committed child abuse, child neglect or medical neglect; or as a result of adoption, child abandonment, mental incompetency or marital dissolution proceedings, or through the voluntary consent of the parent of a child.

The amendment would not prohibit law enforcement agencies or courts to move to protect at-risk children.

Enshrining a basic right

State Rep. Todd Richardson, a Poplar Bluff Republican, said the amendment was prompted in part by a desire to protect the rights of parents who home-school their children.

In March, Rep. Kurt Bahr, R-O'Fallon, introduced legislation that would essentially accomplish what Richardson's amendment would.

"HB 513 would put into statute that the state, or state agencies, cannot violate those parental rights without due process," Bahr said in a statement.

"We must make sure children are protected in emergency situations but balance that with serious action of the state," he added. "To formally terminate parental rights of a child is only eclipsed as the most extreme measure civil government can wield, with the imposition of the death penalty being the only other more extreme measure."

'God-given'

A second House vote will be needed to send Richardson's legislation to the Senate. If it passes there, the proposed amendment would be sent to the voters in 2014.

If the presumption of Richardson's amendment seems apparent - that parents should have the final say in raising their own children, barring committing criminals acts against them, parental rights have actually been under attack for years, and often over the issue of home schooling.

"Parental rights are under siege. Parents, in many ways, are becoming 'second class citizens' as lower courts elevate the power of the state to supersede the wisdom of parents," says a 2004 issue analysis by the Home School Legal Defense Association. "Parental choice is in jeopardy. Freedom is at stake. The basic fundamental freedom of parents to raise their children hangs in the balance. Have we forgotten whose children they are anyway? They are a God-given responsibility to parents."

THE DOLLAR - AND THE USA - IS TOAST

Exclusive: Lord Monckton sees China prepping for final collapse of America

Published: 7 May 2013

LORD MONCKTON

Christopher Monckton of Brenchley, high priest of climate skepticism, advised Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, wrote leaders for the Yorkshire Post, was editor of the Catholic paper The Universe, managing editor of the Telegraph Sunday Magazine, assistant editor of Today, and consulting editor of the Evening Standard. He invented the million-selling "Eternity Puzzles," "Sudoku X" and a promising treatment for infections.

How did the nihilistic left succeed in destroying America? Simple. They learned just a little of the capitalism they hate, and they drove your nation into outright bankruptcy.

And here is what the GOP has to say about it: just about nothing.

The once-mighty United States is now the most indebted nation on Earth. In round numbers, here are just some of the vital statistics as the patient dies:

National debt: $17 trillion, or $50,000 per man, woman and child, or $150,000 per taxpayer. Annual federal deficit: $1 trillion. Medicare/Medicaid/Obama"care": $1 trillion a year. Social Security: another $1 trillion a year. Defense: two-thirds of a trillion. Unemployment handouts: $2 billion per working day. Debt interest: $1 billion per working day. Federal pensions, ditto.

Now for the big numbers. Your government's Social Security liability is as big as the national debt: $17 trillion. Its prescription drug liability is $22 trillion. Then there's the Medicare liability of $86 trillion. Total unfunded liabilities of the U.S. government are $125 trillion.

Net assets for each U.S. citizen are $300,000. The net liability of the U.S. government, shared among its citizens, amounts to almost four times that: $1.1 million a head. And the government's debt is growing at $1 million every 45 seconds. To cover its annual deficit, it is printing $1 trillion a year of currency that is not backed by any asset whatsoever.

Here is what will happen next. When the crash comes, don't say you weren't given fair and clear warning.

First, the dollar will cease - no, make that "is already ceasing" - to be the world's reserve currency. China, as I have been warning you she would, has realized the dollar is finished. So she is quietly making startling progress with bilateral and multilateral deals to replace the dollar with the yuan as the world's currency of choice.

Sterling, once the world's reserve currency, went precisely the same way in 1967 under orders from Moscow, which then largely controlled the governing Socialist Labor party in Britain.

After the Second World War, the Socialist/Communist governments of Attlee and Wilson bankrupted Britain with health-care and welfare programs and nationalization of industries. Inflation rose to 27 percent.

Obama's copycat policies are different in only one respect. Moscow is no longer calling the shots. International totalitarianism no longer needs direction. Its cruel, hate-filled, destructive mission now advances on autopilot.

Watch some of the straws in the wind. China and Korea have come to a little-noticed agreement that international trade between them will no longer be denominated in U.S. dollars, but in yuan, or Won.

Behind the closed mahogany doors of the world's finance houses, elaborate and secret preparations are being made for the upheaval and international financial collapse that will follow the deliberate printing-out and consequent implosion of the dollar.

Your GOP representatives should be, but are not, asking the administration to reveal to them the ever-tougher terms on which the Chinese continue - with ever-greater reluctance - to lend money to keep their communist ally in the White House afloat.

Do not believe China cannot afford to let her biggest creditor fail. She can, she will, and she is making careful preparations to do just that.

If you thought the crash of 2008 was bad, think again. The crash that is coming - I cannot put a date on it, but it is not far away now - will be orders of magnitude worse.

So, what should you do to protect yourself and your family? First, get rid of every dollar you have. Dollars are now all but worthless. When the crash comes, they will have no value at all.

In hard times, most financial instruments - currencies, stocks, bonds - are not worth the paper they are printed on. Get rid of them now. Buy silver coins. They will quintuple in price once the crash sets in, and they are small enough to be fungible when the dollar dies.

Buy land, some of it well-wooded, some of it arable, some of it grassland. You will need the timber to power your steam tractor. Gasoline will be a costly rarity. And make sure you can defend yourselves. Starving mobs are no respecters of persons. Do what the Mormons do: Get three months' supply of imperishable foodstuffs and hide them in the basement.

Absurd though this advice may now seem, there is a real danger that the crash will sudden. If so - perhaps for several months, and even for years - the fabric of civilization, including the food-supply chain, will fail.

It is not my custom to write in millenarian or apocalyptic terms. But the very best that can be said for your current administration is that it simply has no idea what damage it is doing. It is printing money in the vain hope of buying itself time. Yet every fake dollar that comes off the printing-presses makes the problem worse and the solution harder.

At worst, what is now happening to your nation may be deliberate. In that event, your current "president" will go down as history's greatest villain. In any event, he will go down as history's greatest incompetent.

Do not believe none of this can happen. Psychiatrists study what they call "normalcy bias." People expect that everything will carry on and that America is too big to fail. She is not. She has failed. You will pay a heavy price for her failure, unless you act now to defend yourselves against what your government, with the culpable, silent acquiescence of the GOP, is doing to destroy your nation.

Finally, pray. God bless America. It has been nice knowing you. Only when you are gone will the world realize how much it misses you, and - paradoxically - how much it owes you.

German euro founder calls for 'catastrophic' currency to be broken up

Oskar Lafontaine, the German finance minister who launched the euro, has called for a break-up of the single currency to let southern Europe recover, warning that the current course is "leading to disaster".

Mr Lafontaine said on the parliamentary website of Germany's Left Party that Chancellor Angela Merkel will "awake from her self-righteous slumber" once the countries in trouble unite to force a change in crisis policy at Germany's expense.

"The economic situation is worsening from month to month, and unemployment has reached a level that puts democratic structures ever more in doubt," he said.

"The Germans have not yet realised that southern Europe, including France, will be forced by their current misery to fight back against German hegemony sooner or later," he said, blaming much of the crisis on Germany's wage squeeze to gain export share.

Mr Lafontaine said on the parliamentary website of Germany's Left Party that Chancellor Angela Merkel will "awake from her self-righteous slumber" once the countries in trouble unite to force a change in crisis policy at Germany's expense.

His prediction appeared confirmed as French finance minister Pierre Moscovici yesterday proclaimed the end of austerity and a triumph of French policy, risking further damage to the tattered relations between Paris and Berlin.

"Austerity is finished. This is a decisive turn in the history of the EU project since the euro," he told French TV. "We're seeing the end of austerity dogma. It's a victory of the French point of view."

Mr Moscovici's comments follow a deal with Brussels to give France and Spain two extra years to meet a deficit target of 3pc of GDP. The triumphalist tone may enrage hard-liners in Berlin and confirm fears that concessions will lead to a slippery slope towards fiscal chaos.

German Vice-Chancellor Philipp Rösler lashed out at the European Commission over the weekend, calling it "irresponsible" for undermining the belt-tightening agenda.

The Franco-German alliance that has driven EU politics for half a century is in ruins after France's Socialist Party hit out at the "selfish intransigence" of Mrs Merkel, accusing her thinking only of the "German savers, her trade balance, and her electoral future".

It is unclear whether the EU retreat from austerity goes much beyond rhetoric. Mr Moscovici conceded last week that the budget delay merely avoids extra austerity cuts to close the shortfall in tax revenues caused by the recession.

The new policy allows automatic fiscal stabilisers to kick in, but France will stay the course on the original austerity. "It is not about relaxing the effort to cut spending. There will no extra adjustment just to satisfy a number," he said.

Mr Lafontaine said he backed EMU but no longer believes it is sustainable. "Hopes that the creation of the euro would force rational economic behaviour on all sides were in vain," he said, adding that the policy of forcing Spain, Portugal, and Greece to carry out internal devaluations was a "catastrophe".

Mr Lafontaine was labelled "Europe's Most Dangerous Man" by The Sun after he called for a "united Europe" and the "end of the nation state" in 1998. The euro was launched on January 1 1999, with bank notes following three years later. He later left the Social Democrats to found the Left Party.

Bangladeshi capital wears an eerie calm a day after Islamists battle police

By Saeed Ahmed and Farid Ahmed, CNN

May 6, 2013

Dhaka, Bangladesh (CNN) -- On any given Monday, Motijheel -- the commercial center of Dhaka -- is a bustling, chaotic mess of rickshaws and cars jockeying for space in overcrowded streets with an equally determined mass of pushing, shoving pedestrians.

This Monday was different.

Motijheel resembled a battleground, desolate and destroyed.

A day earlier, it was.

Throughout the day and late into the night Sunday, police and paramilitary troops battled with Islamists who laid siege to the area. Half a million of them, by many accounts.

Calls for action after factory collapse

It ended when security forces, 10,000-strong, moved into the area early Monday morning to disperse the protesters.

Exactly how many died in the confrontation might never be known.

The national news agency, Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS), put the count at 14 dead and more than and more than 75 wounded.

Among them were three police officers, a paramilitary trooper and a 12-year-old boy.

Human rights activists say the final count will be much higher -- one that the government may be loathe to share.

Photographs that appeared on online blogs and websites show bodies lying on stairwells or cowered in building corners -- bullet wounds to the head or back, or a pool of blood beside them.

To avoid a repeat of Sunday's violence, police declared no rallies and gatherings can take place all day Monday in Dhaka. And they escorted the Islamist group's leader out of Dhaka.

So protesters focused their efforts elsewhere.

In Narayanganj, a city near the capital, Islamists torched vehicles and fought pitched battles with police.

How it began

The Islamists are members of the ultra-conservative Hefazat-e-Islami (Protectors of Islam).

They gathered Sunday in numbers that boggled the mind.

Photos taken from balconies and rooftops showed a sea of bodies dressed in white panjabis and kufis -- both traditional Muslim attire in Bangladesh -- cramming the streets of Motijheel to the hilt.

They demanded that the government enact laws that put to death anyone who blasphemed Islam.

They called for mandatory Islamic education for all in this secular Muslim nation.

They wanted a ban on statues, and the words "absolute trust and faith in the Almighty Allah" reinstated in the constitution.

They declared that men and women should not be allowed to mix freely in this country of 150 million.

And they vowed they would not leave until their demands -- 13 in all -- were met.

The ensuing confrontation was violent. And bloody.

Country's direction at stake

What is happening in Bangladesh is a push and pull between two forces to determine the future direction of the country.

In February, thousands and thousands of youths held a month-long sit-in in another part of the capital, Shahbag, demanding the death penalty for those who took part in war crimes during Bangladesh's bloody battle for independence from Pakistan.

The rallies, led by youths and fueled by social media, also tried to achieve something else: a ban on extreme fundamentalist parties.

But Bangladesh is also the fourth most populous Muslim country in the world.

And the radical elements of the religion were not going to sit by idly as those rallies grew.

The Islamists let their presence known with larger and larger rallies and strikes, first in cities outside Dhaka and then in the capital city.

Each time they came out, police officers with batons followed.

Clashes ensued. Properties were destroyed. Lives were lost.

The Islamists' tactic has been to turn the criticism on its head: By criticizing them, they seemed to say, you criticize Islam.

They called the Shahbag participants "anti-Islamic atheists" who deserve death for defaming the religion but who are protected by the government.

And so, when the Hefazat-e-Islami protesters gathered Sunday, that was one of their main demands: put to death these "atheists."

Battles for hours

Clashes broke out when Hefazat activists tried to break a police cordon.

The street battles went on for hours, with police firing rubber bullets and tear gas and the Islamists hurling crude explosives and chunks of brick.

Syed Ashraful Islam, secretary-general of the ruling Awami League and a government minister, said demonstrators set fire to the Communist Party of Bangladesh office and ransacked several other business establishments in central Dhaka.

Shahriar Shahid, the managing editor of BSS, said the service had to suspend operations for the day after Hefazat activists set a fire at the entrance of its office.

Blame to go around

The government, rights groups say, shares blame not just for its crackdown but for muffling free speech of the Islamists.

On Monday, authorities shut down the offices of pro-Islamist Diganta Television after it aired footage of the clashes.

"They came in early in the morning and ordered us closed," staffer Tanvir Hussain told CNN.

No one from the telecommunications commission could be reached for comment.

Last month, the government shut down another opposition newspaper.

"This is what I and many others feared when the Shahbag movement started," said Razab Chowdhury, a Bangladeshi expatriate in Fremont, California. "Does it matter that Hefazat is misguided? Does it matter that their vision of Islam is as twisted as the Taliban's?

"Before, I didn't know about these guys; they were a fringe group that pranced about in (the coastal city of) Chittagong. Now security has stabilized situation, but I fear it is pushing the country closer to a civil war."

Reminders everywhere

Monday morning, the reminders of the weekend violence were everywhere.

Smoke smoldered from rubbish heaps. Fires burned inside ransacked stores. Bricks and rocks littered the streets.

Bulldozers pushed the debris to the side.

Bangladesh is still reeling from the aftermath of a catastrophic building collapse last month where the death toll continues to mount: more than 650 by Monday.

And now this.

But Bangladeshis are resilient people.

By Monday afternoon, the rickshaws and the cars were back on the streets in Motijheel. So were the street peddlers and the pedestrians.

The cars blared their horns, the rickshaws squeezed into every available space. The pedestrians flung profanities.

Life, it appeared, was slowly returning to normal.

Bangladesh building collapse death toll surpasses 900

From Farid Ahmed, for CNN

May 9, 2013

(CNN) -- More than two weeks after a factory collapsed in Bangladesh, trapping workers in a mangled concrete heap, the death toll has surpassed 900.

Authorities pulled more bodies from the rubble, bringing the number of people killed to 912 , officials said Thursday. The April 24 collapse occurred in Savar, a suburb of the capital, Dhaka.

Rescue workers saved more than 2,400 people in the aftermath of the collapse, but have focused on using heavy machinery to uncover bodies buried beneath the ruins.

The building, which housed five factories full of garment workers, caved in, burying hundreds of people in a heap of concrete.

It is the South Asian nation's deadliest industrial disaster.

The owners of the building and the factories are under investigation over accusations they ordered workers to enter the premises on the day of the collapse despite cracks in the structure the day before.

Bangladesh's $20 billion garment industry accounts for 77% of the country's exports.

Among those caught up in the finger-pointing after the building collapse disaster are Western retailers and clothing brands that Bangladeshi suppliers say put heavy pressure on prices, resulting in bad pay and conditions for workers.

UFOs 'Roam our skies' Says Former US Air Force Intelligence Officer

Prince Phillip invited pilot and crew to dine and discuss encounter

By Shar Adams

May 5, 2013

WASHINGTON--A former U.S. Air Force major with 5,000 flying hours described in detail his encounter with an UFO, telling former members of Congress at a hearing on extraterrestrial sightings that he has been interested in UFOs ever since.

"These space craft occasionally roam our skies and my theory is they have been coming here for thousands of years," Major George Filer III said May 3, the last day of the week long Citizen Hearing on Disclosure at the National Press Club. 

Filer was one of 39 witnesses who gave testimonies during the hearing, including former members of the U.S. military and federal agencies, researchers, academics and ordinary citizens.

A former Air Force intelligence officer, Filer was a pilot stationed at the U.S. Air Force base at Sculthorpe RAF Base in England in January 1962. He was out refueling fighter aircraft at around 30,000 feet over the North Sea, when he was notified from London Control that radar had picked up a UFO.

It was around sunset and a clear night when he headed toward the object's location, around 1,000 feet above an area near Oxford and Stonehenge, he said. 

Filer said he could feel the adrenalin as his KB-50 J tanker aircraft exceeded what he called redline maximum speed to get there. He said that the control tower in London had cleared the area and was calling out the distance to the craft. 

In a written submission to the hearing he described the experience as follows:

"They called out your miles apart, 60, and 40. At about 30 miles my APS-23 Radar picked up the hovering UFO directly ahead.

"It was an exceptionally large radar return reminding me of a large bridge or ship. This craft was bigger than anything I had seen in the air before. It reminded me of the radar return from the Brooklyn Bridge 6,000 feet or the Firth of Forth Bridge in Scotland (8,300) feet, over a mile long. 

"The return was sharp and solid as compared to the fuzziness of a rain cloud. I felt this craft must be made of steel or strong metal. We were doing around 425 mph as we approached to about 10 miles, when the UFO apparently realized we were intercepting," he said.

"It was a dark night; we could only see a series of dim lights directly ahead similar to a cruise ship at sea. Now only five miles separated us. Suddenly the UFO seemed to come alive, the lights brightened immensely and the UFO accelerated in a launch similar to the Space Shuttle taking off at night. 

"We saw much brighter lights and fantastic acceleration as it climbed almost straight up and suddenly it was gone. These huge craft I learned are called mother ships, because like an aircraft carrier they carry smaller disc craft.

"We asked London Control, if they had any rocket launches in the area. London Control seemed as disappointed as we were. The controller said, "There are no rocket launches in that area, thank you for the intercept, you are now cleared to return to your mission." 

Royal Attention

Filer said the incident did not gain vast attention although he did record it in his navigator's log and it was mentioned the next day in operations. A few weeks later, however, he and his crew received an invitation to dine with Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, who had expressed an interest in their experience. 

"About seven of us sat around a table discussing UFOs. Prince Phillip was very personable and friendly. He was very interested in our intercept and we assume he had also been briefed by London Control because the U.S. Air Force had no apparent interest," he said in his written testimonial.

When he asked the royal consort of Queen Elizabeth II why he was interested he said Prince Phillip replied: "My uncle who raised me, Earl Mountbatten had seen UFOs close up while in the Navy." 

Filer said Prince Phillip told him he had debriefed aircrews who intercepted UFOs "on many occasions." 

Filer said he has researched the topic of UFOs over many years and now believes that extraterrestrials have been visiting planet earth for thousands of years.

He referred to archaeological structures carved in the soil called cursors, which are found throughout England. He believes they resemble the reported shape of mother ship UFOs.

"This complex at Stonehenge and Silbury Hill in England, may in fact represent visitation by an alien race in the distant past," he said.

Filer had another experience with an extraterrestrial craft while in the U.S. Air Force according to organizers of the Citizen Disclosure hearing but he did not discuss it at the event. He is now a regional director of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), a nonprofit volunteer organization which was established in 1969 to record and study UFOs. He also produces a weekly UFO newsletter called Filer's File.

Want to cut your blood pressure? Sit in the sun: Exposure to rays for just 20 minutes can reduce risk of heart attacks and strokes

Scientists argue health benefits of sun outweigh risks from skin cancer

Edinburgh University researchers found exposure can cut blood pressure

Scientists point out strokes and heart attacks kill more than skin cancer

By SOPHIE BORLAND

PUBLISHED: 7 May 2013

Scientists at Edinburgh University claim sunlight could lower blood pressure and help stop heart attacks and strokes (file picture)

Sunlight could lower blood pressure and help stop heart attacks and strokes, scientists claim.

They argue the health benefits of the sun's rays outweigh the risks from skin cancer.

Edinburgh University researchers found when skin is exposed to sunlight for just 20 minutes, blood vessels release an important chemical called nitric oxide.

This acts to lower blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart attacks, strokes or blood clots.

Dr Richard Weller, a senior lecturer in dermatology, pointed out that strokes and heart attacks cause many times more deaths than skin cancer.

Around 159,000 Britons a year die from the circulatory illnesses, while skin cancer kills 2,750.

His team monitored the blood pressure of 24 volunteers who sat under tanning lamps for two sessions of 20 minutes each.

In the first session volunteers were exposed to both UV rays and heat. But for the second session researchers blocked the UV rays, exposing them to heat alone.

The volunteers' blood pressure dropped significantly after the first session, but not the second. This implies it is UV radiation, not heat, which is responsible for the beneficial effects.

The researchers believe sunlight unlocks nitric oxide stored in skin and widens arteries. Both effects lower blood pressure.

Dr Weller will present his findings on Friday at the International Investigative Dermatology  conference in Edinburgh. He said: 'We suspect the benefits to heart health of sunlight will outweigh the risk of skin cancer.'

He said scientists have known for years peoples' blood pressure is lower in summer than winter.

Additionally, research shows populations of countries far  from the equator, with less sunlight, have higher blood pressure.

Dr Weller said it was not a 'cure' and it was 'too early to say' if people should go in the sun more.

While the preliminary research involved only a few people, it will fuel the debate over whether sun exposure is good or bad
