many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive
Saying, I Am Christ
Greetings! Well, this will be our last post for 2014. Over the course of the last few years we have published a few articles concerning Rabbi Kaduri, “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah”.
These articles first appeared in WND, formerly known as World Net Daily, a Christian news site whose editor in chief is Joseph Farah. WND has strongly backed Rabbi Kaduri's prophecies that he purportedly named Jesus as the true Messiah of the Jewish people.
WND has also strongly backed and pushed senior pastor Carl Gallups book concerning Rabbi Kaduri, “THE RABBI WHO FOUND MESSIAH”.
Having recently read the book and upon closer examination we at “People of the Keys” have come to the conclusion that Rabbi Kaduri's prophecies were not about Jesus, the Christ, but about the man who will be proceeding him, the soon coming antichrist.
We will explain below.
It should be noted that in Carl Gallups book he does not come to the unequivocal conclusion that Kaduri's prophecies were definitely about Jesus, but he does tend to lean in that direction.
The following quotes from Gallups book are what caused us to come this conclusion.
(We apologize for not having read the book earlier)
On page 138 of the book it reads:
Rabbi Kaduri said the Messiah would receive his power by wearing a Star of David.
We will need to do a little background information here.
Several years ago while living in London preparing to go to India we had the opportunity to visit the British Library while doing some research.
“The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom. The library is a major research library, holding around 170 million items from many countries, in many languages and in many formats, both print and digital: books, manuscripts, journals, newspapers, magazines, sound and music recordings, videos, play-scripts, patents, databases, maps, stamps, prints, drawings. The Library's collections include around 14 million books, along with substantial holdings of manuscripts and historical items dating back as far as 2000 BC. The British Library is the largest library in the world by number of items catalogued.” Wikipedia
The library was not an ordinary library as most people think of a library. It was not open to the general public. We had to be interviewed first as to our reason for wanting to use the library, which went well, and we were given a two week pass.
The library contained a series of books much, much longer and larger than any set of encyclopedias. What these books contained were the names of many of the books, magazines, documents, etc that were available from the library.
You didn't pull a book off a shelf, you had to submit a paper form to the Librarian who would then retrieve the book. (This could take up to two days if the book was in storage at another facility.)
We just want to note here that since doing this research in London several years ago, the British Library has since moved to a different location, so we are not sure whether it continues to operate as it did when we were there.
To give you an idea of the library, one of the “luminaries” who did his research at the British Library was Karl Marx author of “The Communist Manifesto” and “Das Kapital”.
Having finished our research in one week and having a two week pass we went on to research another topic in which we were interested. This topic was concerning what a recent convert to Christianity, John Todd, had shared when telling his testimony of coming to Jesus. It was his references to King Solomon. John Todd was a high Druid priest who worked with the Illuminati. Here is his quote:
“The greatest Wizard that that ever lived was King Solomon. As great as his writings were in our Bible, they were as great in the Witchcraft bibles: initiation rites, how to conjure demons up, everything, even how to commit human sacrifices are writings that he created.
The Star of David has just recently been called the star of David. For thousands of years it was called the Hexagram or the Crest of Solomon.
Now when a witch wants to practice witchcraft, she’ll get in a pentagram, that’s the five-pointed star in the circle, their strongest form of protection. Then they will lay this six-pointed star, or hexagram — which means “to hex” or to cast black magic or to put a spell on somebody – they’ll put it in a circle on the floor and this will cause the demons to appear at their instructions. It is the most evil sign of witchcraft. It’s dangerous to have it. The pentagram, the pinnacle with the one point up, means Witchcraft; two points up means demon-worship or Satanism. A two points up, five-pointed star symbolises the goat head, which is representative of the devil.”
As astonishing as the above quote may seem, we do know that something went terribly wrong with Solomon according to 1 Kings, chapter 11, in the Bible.
“For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father.Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.” Bible KJV
Molech, incidentally, was the abomination that had a fire inside of it to which babies could be sacrificed.
Getting back to the British Library, we were interested to see if we could find any corroborating evidence to back up John Todd's claims concerning King Solomon.
With a little searching we found a magazine from 1919 called the “Occult Gazette” which featured an article titled “The Little Key of Solomon”. We gave our request to the Librarian who returned a short while later with this old magazine which contained the article. The article contained the information concerning the “Star of David”, which was not the “Star of David” at all, but was in fact the ancient witchcraft symbol of the “Crest of Solomon”. The article went on to tell the history of the “Crest” and how it came into being.
We won't go into that here.
Interestingly, it made mention of a book called “The Key of Solomon”. When asking for this book, which the library did have, it was the first time we were questioned concerning why we wanted this particular book. We can't remember what excuse we gave but it was good enough to be taken into a part of the library we didn't even know existed. It was where they kept the ancient manuscripts, etc.
We were told to sit at a certain desk where we could be watched and the book was brought to us. It was number 49.
The book was not long but what it contained was Solomon's instructions on how to contact demonic spirits in the nether world. It was not ambiguous at all but very straight forward in its
presentation. Almost like going into a kitchen and following a recipe.
It was noted in the book that the chapter on human sacrifice had been deliberately left out.
The book also contained the names and dignitaries of spirits, who ruled over the different areas of the nether world.
Well, we were convinced that what John Todd had said was in fact correct.
Getting back to Rabbi Kaduri and the above quote; “..so the Messiah receiving his power by wearing the “Star of David”, (Crest of Solomon), and Jesus receiving his power through the “Crest of Solomon” “the most evil sign of witchcraft”, seems very, very, unlikely or impossible.
Even Carl Gallups, also on page 138, of his book acknowledges that:
“The shape of the Star of David is that of a hexagram. Many have pointed out that the hexagram, when enclosed in a circle, is a universal symbol used in witchcraft and freemasonry. In witchcraft it is used to call forth the spirit world for earthly communication.”
If any further proof were needed Gallups also quotes Kaduri, on page 142, as saying the Messiah will: “save Jerusalem from Islam and Christianity that wish to take Jerusalem from the Jewish Nation---but they will not succeed”.
Carl Gallups finishes the paragraph by stating: “For the Christian, this statement is nonsensical. Christianity, of course, is linked directly to Jesus Christ. To be a Christian is to be a follower of Messiah—or Christ. How can the true Messiah be Jesus (Yehoshua) Christ, yet fight against Christians—those who follow Jesus Christ?”
We believe the evidence is pretty clear; Rabbi Yitzahk Kaduri, who was a kabbalistic Rabbinical Talmudic Jew, gave a prophecy concerning the coming antichrist.
One thing that should be noted is that God has used Carl Gallups book to bring many Jews to Jesus.
Have a great week ahead and Happy New Year, it should be interesting.
Filipino City Law Requires Bible Verse on Taxis; Officials Credit Scripture for Low Crime Rate, Peace
BY SAMUEL SMITH , CP REPORTER
December 25, 2014|9:20 am
Psalm 47:1 As Painted on The Back of a three-wheeled motor taxi in the Filipino city of Tagbilaran.
Taxi drivers working in the small Filipino tourist island city of Tagbilaran are required by law to have a Bible verse painted on the back of their three-wheeled motorcycle cabs, and any driver that is caught without a scripture is liable to be fined or have their license revoked.
CBN News reports that in an attempt to reduce crime rate in the island of Bohol's provincial capital city, the Bohol provincial government passed into law, over 22 years ago, the requirement for drivers of the city's most efficient mode of public transportation, three-wheeled motorized tricycle taxis that seat as many as four to seven riders, to have scripture verses on the back.
Although the Tagbilaran City Hall only gives out 3,000 commercial tricycle licenses every year, the government requires each driver to have a scripture verse that is completely their own and one that is not being used by any other tricycles operating in the city.
Most operators, when they get their license, are assigned a Bible verse and then have to take their tricycle to get the verse painted on the back by one local auto painter who has painted the town's tricycles for the past 20 years.
Although the law was passed over two decades ago and Tagbilaran is the only city in the Philippines with this requirement for their taxis, Tagbilaran City Counselor, Lucille Langunay, told CBN that the "Bible of wheels" campaign has resulted in lower crime rates in the city and has produced stronger families.
"With a Biblical message at the back of the units, commuters get to see the message every day and it helps in way to preserve the peace in our city," Langunay said. "Everyday commuters get to see the biblical message on the tricycles and who want to think of crime when they see biblical passages everywhere."
The back of one tricycle in the city reads: "Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of Triumph! Ps. 47:1."
Another tricycle scripture reads: "There is a God and one Mediator between God and man. 1 Tim 2:5."
Tricycle operator Crisinel Escudero said that riders love the Bible verses and he is often complimented on his bible verse.
"People thank me all the time for my scripture verse," Escudero said. "They said it touched them. It is always a good reminder that there is a God."
Buala Siongiex, who has been responsible for painting the scriptures on the tricycles for the past 20 years, said that he loves his job because it inspires him everyday.
"I love the scriptures," Siongiex said. "As I paint them on the tricycles, I also get inspired by them. This is the Word of God and it gives us guidance."
Rabbis plan to build temple on Al-Aqsa ruins
Monday, 22 December 2014 12:09
[undated photo from Haaretz]
In the clearest indication of the growing dangers threatening Al-Aqsa Mosque, in an opinion piece published on Saturday, Haaretz discussed a group of rabbis who met to discuss the scheme for the establishment of the Third Temple on the ruins of the mosque. The newspaper published a photograph of a number of rabbis and engineers studying a map of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
In a piece written by Professor Ronnie Ellenblum entitled "Bells are ringing for the ultra-Orthodox and Secular" [hebrew], the paper discussed the future of Al-Aqsa Mosque which Jews refer to as the Temple Mount.
Although the paper did not identify the rabbis who appeared in the picture, one of them has been identified as Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, president of the Temple Institute, a religious authority that is considered the most enthusiastic about destroying Al-Aqsa Mosque and establishing a temple on its ruins.
The research also involved Rabbi Yehuda Etzion, who was responsible for implementing the Hebron University massacre which left 15 students dead or wounded, and was also responsible for implementing three assassination attempts against elected mayors in the West Bank, one of which injured the then Mayor of Nablus Bassam Shakaa, leaving him permanently disabled.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had pledged to the king of Jordan not to take any steps that would change the status quo at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Miri Regev, MK for the Likud party led by Netanyahu, announced that she will not allow the continuation of the status quo Al-Aqsa, stressing that the next Knesset will issue a number of laws that will promote Jewish sovereignty over it.
Israeli Channel 10 quoted Regev saying on Thursday that the consecration of Jewish sovereignty in Al-Aqsa Mosque is the most important embodiment of the political, religious and cultural sovereignty of "the Jewish people on their land".
The channel noted that this view is supported by the ministers of economy and housing, Naftali Bennett and Uri Ariel, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee Ze'ev Elkin, the head of the coalition bloc in parliament, Danny Levin.

OFFICIAL: RUSSIA PLOTTING TO START WAR ON ISRAEL
Plan includes shipping missiles to terrorist groups
Published: December 20, 2014
Russian President Vladimir Putin
TEL AVIV – Russia is preparing a contingency plan to prompt Hezbollah and possibly the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad into a direct military conflict with Israel, according to a French official who has been apprised of the situation.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the contingency was meant to be used as a card against the West, particularly the U.S. and European Union, which has been engaged in efforts to isolate Moscow.
This past week, the U.S. and E.U. adapted tighter sanctions on the Russian economy, including restrictions on investments in the Crimea, with emphasis on Russian Black Sea oil and gas exploration and tourism.
The official said there is information Russia in recent weeks successfully shipped to Hezbollah a large convoy of Iskandar ballistic missiles and surface-to-air missiles. The missiles were received, despite Israel’s alleged airstrikes in Syria targeting Russian-shipped weapons earlier this month, the official said.
The official said Russia has not made any decision about agitating a Hezbollah attack on Israel, but views a possible conflict in the Mideast as a card it can play in its confrontation with the West, particularly in Ukraine
Earlier this month, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem traveled to Russia to meet with the country’s president, Vladimir Putin, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at Russia’s Black Sea resort of Sochi.
WND reported at the time that according to a source in Assad’s regime, Putin and Lavrov assured Moualem that Russia “won’t stand for” any Western attack on Assad and that the Russians pledged “support” and “protection” to the Assad regime.
That pledge came amid pressure from Turkey and Saudi Arabia on the Obama administration to expand the fight against ISIS in Syria to also target Assad’s forces.
Israel to face diplomatic tsunami: Lieberman
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman
Thu Dec 25, 2014 11:17AM GMT
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his policies toward the Palestinians, warning that the regime will face a “diplomatic tsunami” in the future.
“If we don’t initiate, we’ll reach a tsunami. The initiative must be a comprehensive regional agreement,” he said, referring to the deadlock in the so-called peace talks with the Palestinians.
The hawkish politician said that the regime "must reach a diplomatic agreement — not because of the Palestinians or the Arabs, but because of the Jews.”
"We talk all the time about the dispute between us and the Palestinians, but we have not made any progress in 21 years since Oslo – because we made the wrong diagnosis."
The comments came as the Israeli regime is set to hold parliamentary elections on March 17.
The presence and continued expansion of the illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinians territories has created a major obstacle for the efforts to establish peace in the Middle East.
Israel agreed to freeze settlement construction under the Roadmap for Peace plan in 2002. But, it has failed to comply with that commitment despite repeated and widespread international condemnation.
More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds in 1967.
The UN and most countries regard the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured by Israel in a war in 1967 and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbids construction on occupied lands.
The Shinar Directive - Part 4 Mystery Religion And The Nephilim
Published:December 21, 2014
by Dr. Michael Lake
What started false religions? In the beginning, everyone knew Noah and believed in the One True God. The Scriptures call Babylon the mother of all false religions, because under Nimrod the original false religious system was successfully implemented. We learn from the Church fathers that the root of this madness started with the sons of Ham.
Fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man. After the flood Ham the son of Noah unhappily discovered this and taught it to his sons. This became ingrained into the Egyptians, Persians, and Babylonians. Ham died shortly after the fall of the Tower of Babel. Nimrod, called Ninus by the Greeks, was handed this knowledge and by it caused men to go away from the worship of God and go into diverse and erratic superstitions and they began to be governed by the signs in the stars and motions of the planets. (Recognitions of Clement 4.26–29)
Nimrod turned the government into a tyranny and set up twelve idols of wood named after the twelve months of the year, each representing a sign of the Zodiac. He commanded everyone to worship each idol in its proper month. (Jasher 9:8–10; Ancient Post-Flood History—Ken Johnson, ThD)[i]
All Pagan Roads Lead to Babylon
As stated in the previous entry, Noah and his family were selected by God to be saved from the Flood on the ark because they remained genetically pure (or still fully human). Unfortunately, the purity did not extend to all of their minds as well. Resting within the safety of the ark lay the seeds of the arcane knowledge given by the Watchers of Genesis 6. Ham became a sleeper agent of darkness, if you will, infected with the forbidden knowledge that resulted in the severe judgment of God upon humanity. Within the mind and heart of Ham were the foundational concepts upon which Babylon and Egypt were built (and upon which the kingdom of the Antichrist is being built today).
We find in Genesis 9:20–23 that the seeds of the Watchers already began to sprout within the heart of Ham.
And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. (Genesis 9:20–23)
There is much speculation as to the actual sin of Ham contained in these verses. Was this sin the great dishonor and disrespect that Ham had shown to Noah? Alternatively, was it possible that he had sexually violated Noah in some way? Over the centuries, Christian theologians and rabbinical scholars have debated these issues. The New American Commentary dives into the subject and provides a sensible conclusion:
What was Ham’s sin? Why did Noah invoke curses against Canaan instead of the culprit, Ham ([Genesis 9]:25)? The meaning of the phrase “saw his father’s nakedness” has been variously interpreted. Both Jewish and Christian interpretation speculated that Ham’s deed was a sexual offense since the same language is found in the Pentateuch describing sexual transgressions. Further support was garnered from v. 25, which refers to what Ham “had done to him.” Many suppose that the original story contained the sordid details but that they were excised for reasons of propriety when later placed in the Torah. Castration was thought to have been the crime by some Jewish and Christian interpreters, and others argued for a homosexual act. Jewish midrash explained that physical abuse by Ham answered why the curse was directed against Canaan; this act prevented Noah from having a fourth son, and thus Canaan as Ham’s fourth son should suffer (Gen. Rab. 36.7). This may have been fueled by the absence of any notice that additional children were born to Noah, since all the other patriarchs are said to have had “other sons and daughters” (5:3–32; 11:10–25). This lack of reference to other children, however, may be due to the author’s desire to parallel the Sethite and Shemite lines, which both end with three sons (5:32; 11:26).
Concerning a homosexual desire or act, there is no indication that a sexual indiscretion occurred when Ham viewed his father or that Ham desired his father in an illicit way. Levitical language for the homosexual act is “to lie with a male,” which we do not find here. “Saw”…is the common term for observing and does not convey necessarily the idea of sexual lust; the term can be used in this way (cf. 6:2; 34:2), but such meaning must be derived from the context and not the term by itself. On the contrary, the expressions “to see…nakedness” (Lev 20:17) and “to uncover…nakedness” are used of heterosexual actions, not homosexual encounters. The expression in our passage is not a figurative statement since the two sons actually cover up the exposed nakedness of their father, who was in a drunken stupor in the tent. This is reinforced by the description “their faces were turned.” If in fact some lecherous deed occurred inside the tent, it is inexplicable why the covering of their father is in juxtaposition to Ham’s act. On other occasions Genesis is straightforward in its description of sexual misconduct (e.g., 19:5, 30–35; 34:2). There is no reason to assume that homosexuality or, for that matter, heterosexual misconduct would be described euphemistically by the author.
Ham’s reproach was not in seeing his father unclothed, though this was a shameful thing (cp. Hab 2:15), but in his outspoken delight at his father’s disgraceful condition. The penalty against Ham’s son may be thought too severe for mere sibling gossip, but this is because we fail to understand the gravity of Ham’s offense. We have commented elsewhere (see 2:25; 3:7) that nakedness was shameful in Hebrew culture. In later Israel specific prohibitions guarded against the public exposure of the genitals and buttocks (e.g., Exod 20:26; 28:42), and nakedness was commonly associated with public misconduct (e.g., Exod 32:25). It is not surprising then that the euphemism “nakedness” was used for the shameful travesty of incest. Ham ridiculed the “old man’s” downfall. In the ancient world insulting one’s parents was a serious matter that warranted the extreme penalty of death. Mosaic legislation reflected this sentiment. This patriarchal incident illustrated the abrogation of the Fifth Commandment, “Honor your father and mother.” To do so means divine retaliation, for the crime is not against parent alone but is viewed as contempt for God’s hierarchical order in creation. Shem and Japheth, unlike Ham, treated Noah with proper respect. They refused to take advantage of him despite his vulnerable condition.[ii]
The book of James warns us about wisdom that does not come from God. This dark wisdom produces specific effects within the souls of men.
This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. (James 3:15–16)
I believe that the dark wisdom of the Watchers was brewing within the mind of Ham. The result was that he became arrogant, boastful, and disrespectful (just to name a few). Instead of showing honor to his father and covering his nakedness, he mocked his father and made sure this disgrace was brought to everyone’s attention. Once Noah realized what had happened, he uttered a curse that flowed through Ham to his son Canaan. The rabbis of old have debated why this curse was directed upon Canaan and not Cush. Some have concluded that he was an active participant in the disgrace and held the tent open for all to see. This, of course, would be mere speculation as the Scriptures are silent regarding it.
And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. (Genesis 9:25)
In the sad history of slavery in Great Britain and the United States, there were individuals who justified its practice by quoting Genesis 9:25. However, this misinterpretation does not bode well in the light of historical facts. Finis Dake provides us with a quick summary of the descendants of Ham and where they settled:
The Sons of Ham
1. Cush (Gen. 10:6–12; 1 Chr. 1:8–10; Isa. 11:11), progenitor of various Ethiopian tribes that settled south of Egypt and also overran Arabia, Babylonia, and India.
2. Mizraim (Gen. 10:6, 13–14; 1 Chr. 1:8–11), progenitor of various Egyptian tribes. Mizraim means “double.” Tribes of the double Egypt (upper and lower Egypt), called the land of Ham, came from him (Ps. 78:51; 105:23–27; 106:22). The Philistines also came from Mizraim (Gen. 10:14).
3. Phut (Gen. 10:6; Ezek. 27:10), progenitor of the Libyans and other tribes in northern Africa (Ezek. 27:10; 30:5; 38:5; Jer. 46:9; Nah. 3:9).
4. Canaan (Gen. 10:6,15–19; 9:18–27; 1 Chr. 1:8–13), progenitor of peoples that settled mainly in Palestine, Arabia, Tyre, Sidon, and other parts of the land promised to Abraham. These nations are often mentioned in connection with Israel (Gen. 10:15–19; 15:18–21; Dt. 7:1–3; Josh. 12).[iii]
Since Canaan’s descendants stayed primarily in the Middle East, there was no validity to their claim that this referred to the Africans sold into slavery. What we do find is that Ham’s children became major problems for God’s people throughout history, both in ancient times and today.
From a mystery religion[iv] point of view, we can examine how the Watchers’ seeds of defiance spread like wildfire through Ham’s children.
Cush is named in the Bible as the father of Nimrod. Ancient history tells us quite a bit more about this barely footnoted individual within the Word of God. Cush was a leading influence in both the formation of Babylon and in the construction of the Tower of Babel. As we begin to investigate Cush historically, it is obvious that the seeds of the Watchers had taken root and begun to spring forth. Alexander Hislop, in his classic work The Two Babylons, sheds light on both the activities of Cush and the various names he bore within ancient history:
Now, assuming that Ninus is Nimrod, the way in which that assumption explains what is otherwise inexplicable in the statements of ancient history greatly confirms the truth of that assumption itself. Ninus is said to have been the son of Belus or Bel, and Bel is said to have been the founder of Babylon. If Ninus was in reality the first king of Babylon, how could Belus or Bel, his father, be said to be the founder of it? Both might very well be, as will appear if we consider who was Bel, and what we can trace of his doings. If Ninus was Nimrod, who was the historical Bel? He must have been Cush; for “Cush begat Nimrod” (Gen[esis] 10:8); and Cush is generally represented as having been a ringleader in the great apostacy. But again, Cush, as the son of Ham, was Her-mes or Mercury; for Hermes is just an Egyptian synonym for the “son of Ham.”
Gregory attributes to Cush what was said more generally to have befallen his son; but his statement shows the belief in his day, which is amply confirmed from other sources, that Cush had a preeminent share in leading mankind away from the true worship of God. The composition of Her-mes is, first, from “Her,” which, in Chaldee, is synonymous with Ham, or Khem, “the burnt one.” As “her” also, like Ham, signified “The hot or burning one,” this name formed a foundation for covertly identifying Ham with the “Sun,” and so deifying the great patriarch, after whose name the land of Egypt was called, in connection with the sun. Khem, or Ham, in his own name was openly worshipped in later ages in the land of Ham; but this would have been too daring at first. By means of “Her,” the synonym, however, the way was paved for this. “Her” is the name of Horus, who is identified with the sun, which shows the real etymology of the name to be from the verb to which I have traced it. Then, secondly, “Mes,” is from Mesheh (or, without the last radical, which is omissible), Mesh, “to draw forth.” In Egyptian, we have Ms in the sense of “to bring forth”, which is evidently a different form of the same word. In the passive sense, also, we find Ms used. The radical meaning of Mesheh in Stockii Lexicon, is given in Latin “Extraxit,” and our English word “extraction,” as applied to birth or descent, shows a connection between the generic meaning of this word and birth. This derivation will be found to explain the meaning of the names of the Egyptian kings, Ramesses and Thothmes, the former evidently being “the son of Ra,” or the sun; the latter in like manner, being “the son of Thoth.” For the very same reason Her-mes is the “Son of Her, or Ham,” the burnt one—that is, Cush.
Now, Hermes was the great original prophet of idolatry; for he was recognised by the pagans as the author of their religious rites, and the interpreter of the gods. The distinguished Gesenius identifies him with the Babylonian Nebo, as the prophetic god; and a statement of Hyginus shows that he was known as the grand agent in that movement which produced the division of tongues. His words are these: “For many ages men lived under the government of Jove [evidently not the Roman Jupiter, but the Jehovah of the Hebrews], without cities and without laws, and all speaking one language. But after that Mercury interpreted the speeches of men (whence an interpreter is called Hermeneutes), the same individual distributed the nations. Then discord began.”[v]
So Cush was known by many names throughout history and pagan mythology: Cush, Bel, Hermes, Mercury, and Nebo. Later on in The Two Babylons, Hislop links Cush to both Janus and to the releasing of chaos at the Tower of Babel as “Confounder.”
It must have been in the sense of Bel the “Confounder.” And to this meaning of the name of the Babylonian Bel, there is a very distinct allusion in Jeremiah 1:2, where it is said “Bel is confounded,” that is, “The Confounder is brought to confusion.” That Cush was known to Pagan antiquity under the very character of Bel, “The Confounder,” a statement of Ovid very clearly proves. The statement to which I refer is that in which Janus “the god of gods,” from whom all the other gods had their origin, is made to say of himself: “The ancients…called me Chaos.”
Janus was so called in the most ancient hymns of the Salii. Now, first this decisively shows that Chaos was known not merely as a state of confusion, but as the “god of Confusion.” But, secondly, who that is at all acquainted with the laws of Chaldaic pronunciation, does not know that Chaos is just one of the established forms of the name of Chus or Cush? Then, look at the symbol of Janus, whom “the ancients called Chaos,” and it will be seen how exactly it tallies with the doings of Cush, when he is identified with Bel, “The Confounder.” That symbol is a club; and the name of “a club” in Chaldee comes from the very word which signifies “to break in pieces, or scatter abroad.”[vi]
It would seem that Cush claimed the prophetic ability to channel the instructions and will of the now-banished Watchers to humanity (this will be important later on in our study of the Illuminati). His dark prophetic wisdom was the catalyst for both the establishment of Babylon and the building of the Tower of Babel.
I believe it is also interesting to note that Cush was called “the god of Confusion.” This may give further insight into Paul’s statement: “For God is not the author of confusion”[vii] (1 Corinthians 14:33). Remember, both epistles to the Corinthians were written to a highly paganized population, in which a portion of the Gentiles had recently found Messiah. With all of the problems that Paul had to contend with, it seemed many of their members had one foot in biblical Christianity and the other foot solidly planted in the paganism of their fathers. In their pagan training, many times the influence of their gods produced chaos, as it did within the mythology of Janus—the god of gods. This would explain why Paul labored so hard in both of his epistles to separate, within their thinking, the concepts of the God of Abraham with the pantheon of pagan deities they were accustomed to.
God foretells His eventual judgment on the sons of Cush:
You too, Ethiopians, will be put to death by my sword. (Zephaniah 2:12, CJB [Complete Jewish Bible][viii])
The Hebrew word here for “Ethiopians” is Kuwshiy (koo-shee’), which means “one of the descendants of Cush.”[ix] In fact, the Anderson-Forbes Phrase Marker Analysis of the Hebrew Bible[x] translates this as “Kushites” instead of “Ethiopians.”
A Commentary: Critical, Experimental, and Practical on the Old and New Testaments shares insights into this prophetic word against the sons of Cush.
Whatever the reason for choosing Cush and whatever the process by which the oracle achieved this position in the book, Zephaniah made a strong statement about the day of the Lord as he used the oracle. The day of the Lord has a “three-fold ‘no-escape’: no escape for any people, no escape from the wages of sin, no escape from divine confrontation.”[xi]
I believe this signifies that when Jesus returns as Messiah ben David (the Conquering King), all of the esoteric knowledge that the Watchers provided this bloodline will not save them from God’s judgment. No promise of godhood, immortality, or transcendence, whether offered by the Luciferian Elite or the evangelists of transhumanism, will save them. The “threefold” judgment of the trice Holy God will be poured upon their heads until they are no more.
Finally, we have an idea now of where Nimrod obtained the knowledge he used to enslave men, to cofound Babylon, to become its first worldwide king, and to develop a religious system designed to draw men away from the One True God. His father was a prophet of darkness and an interpreter for the old gods. Nimrod was raised to be an elitist—one illuminated with the forbidden knowledge that was promised by Lucifer in the garden and taught to mankind by fallen angels in Genesis 6. This proverbial apple did not fall far from the family tree. In fact, what he did eclipsed all of their occult endeavors.
An Examination of the Original (and Returning) Nimrod
Before I dive into what I have discovered about Nimrod, I want to share some of the basic information regarding the first king of Babylon that you will find in most Bible commentaries. For this task, I will refer to The Pentateuch by James E. Smith.
The text furnishes scant information concerning Nimrod. He was a descendant of Cush, a Hamite. The Biblical record thus agrees with data from the ancient history of Mesopotamia which furnish evidence that the region was first ruled by a non-Shemitic people. Nimrod began to be (i.e., set out to be) a mighty one (gibbor) in the land (10:8). The term tyrant captures the intention of the original. Nimrod’s very name is an encapsulation of his lifestyle. His name means, “Let us revolt.” He must have been a ruthless ruler who was opposed to all existing order.
Nimrod was especially noted as “a mighty hunter before Yahweh” (10:9). One of the royal responsibilities of kings in ancient times was to keep the wild animal population thinned out so that citizens would not be threatened. The text may refer to this function. The documents, however, also speak of ancient kings hunting the men of a city, capturing them, and carrying them off into slavery. Perhaps Nimrod hunted men. He did this “before (liphne) Yahweh,” i.e., in opposition to Yahweh. The Septuagint rendered, “a mighty hunter against the Lord.”
Nimrod was an empire builder. He started his rise to power in Shinar, in the lower Mesopotamian river valley. He gradually extended his influence over (or possibly built) Babel, Erech, Accad and Calneh. Nimrod eventually expanded his influence into Assyria where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth, Calah and the great city of Resen (10:10–12).[i]
To this basic understanding we can now add the perspective I have already shared regarding the knowledge of the Watchers that was embedded into Ham’s family line. With this information, you can now have a better understanding of the family tree from which Nimrod sprang. He was not a strange spiritual anomaly within his family. He was the personification of all their hopes and dreams.
And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord. (Genesis 10:8–9)
These two little lines of text within Holy Writ reveal a conspiracy that would change the world for the worse. The knowledge of the Watchers found its zenith in Nimrod. What he did and who he became would change the course of history and turn the hearts of men away from God. So powerful was its influence that it will continue through the currents of time until it abruptly halts at the return of the Lord Jesus.
What was the change that occurred in Nimrod that all of the occult Elite are working behind the scenes and using the resources of every advanced nation to rediscover? I have already hinted at it, but Dr. Tom Horn provides the answer with great clarity in his research.
Nimrod, the original character who later was mythologized as the god Apollo prophesied by the apostle Paul in the New Testament (and by the occult elite on the Great Seal of the United States) as the ancient spirit that will return to earth to rule the novus ordo seclorum.
The story of Nimrod in the book of Genesis may illustrate how this could happen through genetic engineering or a retrovirus of demonic design that integrates with a host’s genome and rewrites the living specimen’s DNA, thus making it a “fit extension” or host for infection by the entity. Note what Genesis 10:8 says about Nimrod:
And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Three sections in this unprecedented verse indicate something very peculiar happened to Nimrod. First, note where the text says, “he began to be.” In Hebrew, this is chalal, which means “to become profaned, defiled, polluted, or desecrated ritually, sexually or genetically.” Second, this verse tells us exactly what Nimrod began to be as he changed genetically—“a mighty one” (gibbowr, gibborim), one of the offspring of Nephilim. As Annette Yoshiko Reed says in the Cambridge University book, Fallen Angels and the History of Judaism and Christianity, “The Nephilim of Genesis 6:4 are always…grouped together with the gibborim as the progeny of the Watchers and human women.” And the third part of this text says the change to Nimrod started while he was on “earth.” Therefore, in modern language, this text could accurately be translated to say: “And Nimrod began to change genetically, becoming a gibborim, the offspring of watchers on earth.”[ii]
Bible commentator Adam Clarke seems to agree with Dr. Horn’s conclusions by quoting the Syraic Targum regarding Nimrod: “The Syriac calls him a warlike giant.”[iii]
Then Clarke continues to share about Nimrod and the building of the Tower of Babel and its connection to giants:
On this point Bochart observes that these things are taken from the Chaldeans, who preserve many remains of ancient facts; and though they often add circumstances, yet they are, in general, in some sort dependent on the text. 1. They say Babel was built by the giants, because Nimrod, one of the builders, is called in the Hebrew text גבור gibbor, a mighty man; or, as the Septuagint, γιγας, a giant. 2. These giants, they say, sprang from the earth, because, in Genesis 10:11, it is said, He went, מן הארץ ההוא min haarets hahiv, out of that earth; but this is rather spoken of Asshur, who was another of the Babel builders. 3. These giants are said to have waged war with the gods, because it is said of Nimrod, Genesis 10:9, He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; or, as others have rendered it, a warrior and a rebel against the Lord. See Jarchi in loco. 4. These giants are said to have raised a tower up to heaven, as if they had intended to have ascended thither.[iv]
Thus Nimrod had achieved something that only the Watchers of old had done before, yet he took it to a whole new level. In fact, his cutting-edge breakthrough has sat at the center of all secret societies, alchemists, wizards, sorcerers, warlocks, and Illuminati elite throughout the millennia. Nimrod somehow took the arcane knowledge of his family line and pushed it beyond what others could do. Something he willfully did worked a dark miracle—and he became a gibborim (another type of Nephilim). This transmogrification must have thrilled the kingdom of darkness, and evidently will again, as prophecy says this dark esoteric power will be reproduced once more in history resulting in the transmogrification of a man that allows Lucifer himself to co-inhabit an enhanced man-god.
But, how many realize (as we will see in the next entry) there are fearfully powerful men now dedicated to this near-horizon reincarnation of Nimrod—whom the Bible calls Antichrist.

Did Giants Exist? Part 1: Legends and America’s Giant Skeletons
By Paul Darin, Epoch Times and Tara MacIsaac, Epoch Times | December 18, 2014
Last Updated: December 20, 2014 11:24 am

The universe is full of mysteries that challenge our current knowledge. In "Beyond Science" Epoch Times collects stories about these strange phenomena to stimulate the imagination and open up previously undreamed of possibilities. Are they true? You decide.
So much knowledge has been lost throughout the ages—destroyed by war, natural disasters, human ignorance, or simply by the erosion of time. However, with all that has been lost, much remains buried. Perhaps the clues to solving age-old mysteries are right beneath our feet.
In the search for evidence that giant existed, some have looked to the large mounds of the American Midwest, some to the massive and mysterious structures of the Middle East.
Abraham Lincoln stated, inspired by viewing Niagara Falls: “The eyes of that species of extinct giants, whose bones fill the mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara, as ours do now. Contemporary with the whole race of men, and older than the first man, Niagara is strong, and fresh today as 10,000 years ago.”

The shadows of real giants loom large, some say, in the legends of many cultures.The controversial discoveries of skeletons measuring 7 feet to more than 9 feet tall, along with other artifacts, have suggested to some that truth inspired these legends.
Researchers who explore these possibilities, and often face ridicule from more conventional scientists, say that in the remote past giants with a median height of 7 feet or taller occupied the Earth alongside humans of roughly our size. Moreover, these giants may have had their own culture, civilization, and perhaps even several nations or races of giants may have existed at different times and in different places.
Giants Ubiquitous in Legend
The Bible references giants several times and in many sections. Genesis 6:4 in the King James Bible states: “There were giants in the Earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” In other versions of the Bible, the “giants” are referred to as “Nephilim.”
Goliath, of the famous battle of David and Goliath (Samuel 1:17), was said to be approximately 9 feet and 9 inches tall, according to Bible Gateway. Goliath was the champion of the Philistine army; the young David stunned him with only a sling and stone, slaying Goliath moments later with his own sword.
Ancient Greek mythology tells of titans, the giants of prehistory. The primordial goddess Gaea gave birth to the titans, giants who walked the earth before the Olympians and man. Unfortunately for the titans, the Olympians would eventually overthrow them, banishing them to oblivion or eternally torturous tasks.

Pliny the Elder wrote in his famous “Naturalis Historica,” completed in 77 A.D., that giant skeletons had been found. He cited ancient sources, as did the 1st century Roman historian Titus Flavius Josephus, who mentioned multiple times the existence of giants in an earlier age.
The Mayans also have a giant story. Cabrakan, last of the Earth-giants of Guatemala, was so mighty he could throw mountains. But, alas, he was eventually tricked and poisoned by the Hero Twins, ending his prideful earthquake-causing ways, according to “The Myths of Mexico and Peru,” by Lewis Spence of Ball State University.
Did Early Explorers Find Giants in the New World?
In 1608, explorer John Smith wrote: “The Sasquesahanougs are a Gyant-like people.” He described them: “They measured the calf of the largest man’s leg, and found it three quarters of a yard about, and all the rest of his limbs were in proportion; so that he seemed the stateliest and most goodly personage they had ever beheld. His arrows were five quarters yard long, headed with the splinters of a white chrystal-like stone …”

Hernando de Soto, a 16th century Spanish explorer who delved deep into the territory of what is today the United States, also described men half a yard taller than his tallest men.
Legends of giants are found among the Iroquois, the Osage, the Tuscaroras, the Hurons, the Omahas, and many other Native American peoples.
Giant Skeletons Found?
The mounds of the American Midwest, often related to Native American tribes and cultures, are believed by some to be the sacred burial mounds of giants. A plethora of newspaper clippings and journal articles documenting the discovery of skeletons anywhere from 7 feet to more than 9 feet tall permeate the 19th-century Midwest.
The Smithsonian has said measurements of such skeletons during this time period must have simply been mistaken. Douglas Ross Hamilton contacted the National Museum of Natural History, administered by the Smithsonian Institution, for comment before publishing his book, “A Tradition of Giants.” He wrote: “An example, contained in a personal communication from a Smithsonian staff member just prior to publication of this book, shows the ongoing denial plaguing the National Museum. The individual’s name is withheld by request, and I paraphrase: As it was in the early days of archaeological excavations, skeletons were sometimes measured as they were found. With the possibility of shifting bones, the re-location of the skull and the feet, an individual could (without doubt) be measured many inches (or even feet) longer than they would have been in life …”
Hamilton argued that not all the skeletons had shifted as such and even “by measuring the long bones of the leg coupled with the measure of the shoulder sockets and the size of the skull, there was little doubt of the stature in life.”
In the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Jun 28, 1933, an article announced that more than a dozen skeletons, all more than 7 feet tall had been found in Catahoula parish, Louisiana, and the site had been examined by Smithsonian researchers. The report stated that the find “was regarded as contributing to the theory that the prehistoric mound-builder lived there.”
A clipping from the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, June 28, 1933.
Hamilton cited “A History of Muskingum County,” written in 1884, which gave an account of giant remains found, apparently cremated after death, in Ohio: “Immediately behind, or west of the altar, were found three skeletons, deeply charred, and covered with ashes, lying faces upward, heads toward the south, measuring, respectively: 8 feet 10 [inches], 9 feet 2 [inches], and 9 feet 4 inches in length. In another grave a female skeleton 8 feet long, and a male skeleton 9 feet 4 inches long.”
In 1879, a 9-foot-8-inch skeleton was purportedly uncovered in a mound in Brewersville, Ind. These remains, however, were destroyed when a flood swept through the area in 1937, destroying the building in which the bones were being stored, according to a presentation by Larry Zimmerman of the Department of Anthropology and Museum Studies at Indiana University, titled “Lost Tribes, Sunken Continents, and Ancient Astronauts: On the Wild Side of Midwestern Archaeology.”
In 1871, in the township of Cayuga, Ontario, Canada, it is said that some 200 giant skeletons were uncovered, many of which were as tall as 9 feet and few of which were shorter than 6 feet. The site was open to any who wanted to take a look, and many flocked there. A comment sent by a reader who identified himself as a medical doctor, J.N. Johnstone, to the local newspaper the Hamilton Spectator, was republished by the New York Times on Sept. 10, 1871 reads: “Hearing of the curiosities found in a grave or pit near Cayuga, and being somewhat of a curiosity seeker, I paid it a visit, and deem myself well repaid for any trouble by what I saw. … The size of some of the bones is truly wonderful, indicating a race of giants in the past.”
A 1936 bulletin, written by G.I. Groves of the North American Indian Relic Collectors’ Association and cited by Hamilton, tells of an interesting excavation at the Spiro Mounds of Oklahoma: “Of the skeletal material, only four or five good specimens were found. One remarkable mummy was 8-1/2 feet in length. He had been cremated to such an extent that the flesh was charred,and remained in that condition throughout the ages.”
The bulletin describes the lack of attention paid to this discovery, stating that the remains were moved to a tent where some locals came to take a peek, “but no museum authorities or archaeologists were interested enough to investigate. After occupying for several weeks the only shelter available, it was moved to the rear of the tent to make room for more valuable relics, and left to the ravages of the elements. In a few weeks, it had disappeared.”
So, if all these bones were found, where are they now? Does the evidence only exist in old newspaper clippings?
Did Giants Exist? Part 2: Where Are the Skeletons Now?

Many newspaper clippings can be found from the 19th century, and trickling on into the 20th century, reporting on the discovery of full skeletons or bones that indicate a race of giant humanoids.
For example, on Dec. 19, 1897, the New York Times reported from Maple Creek, Wis.: “One of the three recently discovered mounds in this town has been opened. In it was found the skeleton of a man of gigantic size. The bones measured from head to foot over 9 feet and were in a fair state of preservation. The skull was as large as a half bushel measure. Some finely tempered rods of copper and other relics were lying near the bones.”
On May 3, 1912, the New York Times reported from Madison, Wis.: “Upon opening one large mound at Lake Lawn farm, 18 skeletons were discovered by the Phillips Brothers. The heads, presumably those of men, are much larger than the heads of any race which inhabit America today.”
It isn’t only Wisconsin that seemed a hotbed of giant-bone discovery. Ohio had many such reports from this time period, and large bones attributed to giants have been found up into Eastern Canada. Giant bones have allegedly been found all over the world.
In August 1890, The Popular Science News and Boston Journal of Chemistry reported a finding by anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge at the Bronze Age cemetery of Castelnau-le-Lez, France. Lapouge had found unusually large human humerus bones. The journal wrote: “If we judge of the height of this neolithic giant by the usual proportion of the parts of the skeleton to each other, he must have been between 10 and 11 feet high. The question remains whether this excessive growth was a normal one, or due to a diseased condition … On this point the authorities differ, one professor of the University of Montpellier holding that the bones are normal in every respect, while another finds evidence of a diseased condition.”
Three bone fragments of the alleged “Giant of Castelnau” found by Georges Vacher de Lapouge, compared to a regular-sized human humerus (center). (Wikimedia Commons)
It also reported that there was a tradition among the local peasants that a giant once lived in a nearby cave. At least in this case, the giant myth may have some truth to it.
These are just a few cases representative of many others. So if all these bones were found, why aren’t they being studied by modern scientists and definitively proven to be giant bones or something else?
Author of the book “A Tradition of Giants,” Douglas Ross Hamilton suggests the following among the reasons these bones are not being studied today.
1. Bones Disintegrated
When the bones made contact with oxygen, some quickly turned to dust. Some were already almost disintegrated by the time they were discovered. Hamilton wrote: “Many skeletal remnants uncovered by early settlers, antiquarians, collectors, and museum officials were already of such apparent antiquity that they had already returned to the consistency of the earth, leaving but an outline or less.”
2. Native American Grave Protection
The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) resulted in the reburial of some bones that had been unearthed and prevented the unearthing of others. NAGPRA was intended to preserve the sacred nature of Native American burial rights and to respect the belief that the remains of ancestors should not be disturbed.
Hamilton wrote: “The museums that once claimed the larger bones in their itinerary no longer respond to requests for such unusual remains except in a fashion of denial. … it is as though they never existed.”
He looked at the history of the Smithsonian, noting in particular the control anthropologist Ales Hrdlicka demanded in shaping the view of Native American history when he became curator of the Division of Physical Anthropology in 1910.
For example, Hrdlicka was adamantly opposed to any view that humans arrived in North America more than a few thousand years ago. Hamilton explained: “The Harvard faculty geologist Kirk Bryan (1888-1950) once advised his students that during the ‘reign’ of Hrdlicka, ‘if you ever find evidence of human life in a context which is ancient, bury it carefully, but do not forget about it.'”
In 2009, an Associated Press article reviewed some of Hrdlicka’s strange behavior. The article was about the reburial of Northern Mexico’s Yaqui Indians, who were killed in a 1902 massacre by Mexican federal troops. The article stated: “As if the horror of the massacre weren’t enough, U.S. anthropologist Ales Hrdlicka came upon some of the bodies while they were still decaying, hacked off the heads with a machete and boiled them to remove the flesh for his study of Mexico’s ‘races.'”
Hrdlicka had also dumped an infant’s corpse, taking the baby carrying-board underneath it and the blood-spattered blankets to the museum. The museum told AP that “cultural sensitivities and values within the museum community have changed” since Hrdlicka’s era. Hrdlicka also made significant contributions, including developing the theory that native Americans came from Asia across the Bering Strait.
Archaeologist Dr. Warren King Moorehead, a contemporary of Hrdlicka’s, had taken an interest in giants. Dr. Moorehead was a respected scholar of the time, he was even offered a political appointment in Indian relations by Teddy Roosevelt. The Smithsonian purchased purported giant bones Moorehead was studying. But, Hamilton wrote: “The Smithsonian today is unable to account for these and many other remains and artifacts.”
He wrote: “Instead of diffusing knowledge, it [the Smithsonian] has steadfastly refused to allow its vaults to be opened to scholars from other museums, state and local institutions, and any independent research—especially if the intent is to search out anomalies.”
4. Crushed, Thrown Away
As settlers developed America, mounds were flattened and careful archaeological excavation was not common. Some of the bones were likely displayed as curiosities, then disposed of.
Hamilton quoted the Proceedings of the New York Historical Society (1843): “…A vast deal is yet to be accomplished in this field, and it is to be hoped that an effort will be made to rescue from oblivion the monuments that yet remain in various parts of our country, of the existence of a great race of people, who are fast perishing. Ever[y] year these relics become less; the mounds and earth works of the west are leveled as the settlements are extended, and a few years will suffice to destroy those interesting memorials of a great and powerful nation.”
It is unclear whether “a great race” referred specifically to giants or to Native Americans, but the statement could nonetheless apply to giants if such a race existed.
“And they (the spies) brought a horror of that land which they surveyed upon the children of Israel, saying, The land which we passed by to survey it, is a land that eats up its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of extraordinary stature. And there we saw the giants; and we were before them as locusts, yea even so were we before them.” Numbers 13:33-34 the Septuagint
“But the Almighty Lord hath disappointed them by the hand of a woman. 7 For the mighty one did not fall by the young men, neither did the sons of the Titans smite him, nor high giants set upon him: but Judith the daughter of Merari weakened him with the beauty of her countenance.” Judith 16:6 The Apocrypha

Bones From 200-Million-Year-Old Monster of the Sea Found in Russia
By Olga Gertcyk, The Siberian Times and Derek Lambie, The Siberian Times | December 24, 2014

Background: A depiction of the plesiosaurus. (Animal Reader)
From The Siberian Times: When Andrey Tyuryakov scanned the ground for signs of mushrooms, little did he know he might stumble across something far more important than his beloved fungus. Indeed, the scientist may well have accidentally unearthed one of Russia’s most important dinosaur finds.
For under his feet as he walked along the shore of Wrangel Island, in the Siberian Sea, was an unusually shaped object that, at first, looked like a large stone. But this was no ordinary boulder; it instead has turned out to be a 200-million-year-old bone belonging to one of the largest dinosaurs that ever existed.
“I almost stepped on it,” said Tyuryakov, who works for the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute in St. Petersburg. “It was just in front of my eyes, a totally unusual shape.” A mushroom lover, Tyuryakov’s eyes are always on the ground as he’s walking, and that’s what helped him make this historic find.
Tyuryakov was part of a group of four scientists sent to Wrangel Island, in Russia’s far east, to take part in a complex expedition for a large energy company.
They were there to spend seven days on the remote outpost studying a polar bear population, and were assisted by members of staff from the nature reserve, including the director, Aleksandr Gruzdev. It was at the end of the expedition that he stumbled across the “stone,” and when he asked his colleagues if they thought it was of interest, they said it looked ordinary.
They believed it had taken its odd shape and markings as a result of being pounded for years by waves and wind. However, the scientist’s instincts told him it was much more than just a boulder, so he took it with him back St. Petersburg, where it was examined by experts at the city’s Zoological Museum.

Preliminary tests stunned the researchers, who found the stone was actually likely to be two fossilized bones from a plesiosaurus, a dinosaur reptile often described as a giant sea monster. It was among the most feared creatures that roamed the oceans 200 million years ago, with its body longer than a humpback whale and teeth the size of cucumbers.
Thought to have had extremely long necks about 50 feet long (15 meters), but small heads, and equipped with large flippers, they were the top marine predators during the Jurassic period.
Some experts have even described them as the “T-Rex of the ocean,” since they tended to feed on other marine reptiles.
Tyuryakov said: “This is the first discovery of fossil remains on Wrangel Island, and I’m proud. I’m just happy that I found it, having been on the island for a week.”
Plesiosaurs are thought to have been common in the Arctic seas, with another vertebra found by Soviet scientists on Uyedineniya Island, in the Kara Sea, during an expedition in the 1930s.
Lying 88 miles off the coast of north-eastern Siberia, and also close to Alaska, Wrangel Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
It is a federally-protected nature sanctuary, administered by Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment, and was classified a “zapovednik”—meaning a strict nature reserve—in 1976.
This gives the 2,900-square-mile island the highest level of protection and excludes practically all human activity other than for scientific purposes. It is believed to have been the final place on Earth to have supported woolly mammoths, with a small isolated population existing until about 2,000 B.C.
Further tests will be carried out on the fossilised remains in St. Petersburg. A number of paleontological expeditions to the Arctic region to find further plesiosaur remains are planned for 2015.

The Soul Of The East
THE BANKSTER INTERNATIONAL
December 18, 2014 by Mark Hackard
Geopolitical analysis, the art of explaining power relationships through the prism of impersonal geography, can be a helpful tool for observers of the Great Game – but it also has its limitations. A case in point is the renewed US-Russia confrontation. Think tanks and policy insiders easily sell the narrative that from the dark days of the Cold War to our own time, Russia and the United States are fated to play in a zero-sum contest for the future of Eurasia and the world. Deterministic theories, though, can be used to legitimize predatory policy, and pseudo-scientific formulae often conceal manipulations by parasitic elites. Scoring a fortune off human misery and mass death, plundering economic assets, and shaping entire societies in one’s own image all find justification in claims of historical inevitability and the necessity of “progress.”
While Russia and the United States can easily be cast as eternal enemies in the manner of Rome and Carthage, or Ivan Drago and Rocky Balboa for modern audiences, we should recall that the two states were originally allies. From the time of 1776, Russo-American friendship was a contributor to the peace and security of both nations for nearly a century and a half. Catherine the Great shrewdly supported the independence of the American colonists, who were able to mount a successful rebellion against an exploitative oligarchy acting through the British Crown. In the terrible cauldron of the US Civil War, Tsar Alexander II, liberator of the peasantry, sent his fleet to America’s Atlantic and Pacific coasts to deter British and French intervention schemes.
The Russian Navy patrols America’s coastlines, 1863.
In Realpolitik, where expediency is the order of the day, alliances are defined by a common adversary. For both Russia and the United States, that adversary was not simply another nation-state like England or France, but a financial international bent on controlling the world through elaborate fraud, war, and revolution. Banking dynasties under names like Rothschild, and later Morgan, Warburg, and Rockefeller, had ascended to power in the West from the seventeenth century onward. Their planned global imperium of borderless labor and capital flows, today promoted as the Open Society by billionaire speculators such as George Soros, was already entering its initial stages of implementation. Thus the fledgling American Republic, an Enlightenment project but not yet under bankster domination, and Imperial Russia could unite for the freedom of their peoples and against the assaults of the Money Power.
What changed? In the early twentieth century the masters of usury struck back decisively against the United States and Russia, by stealth in the former case and an outright coup d’état in the latter. Through various machinations, the privately-run Federal Reserve Bank was established in 1913 to issue the US currency at interest, suborning institutions of government and crushing Americans with a national debt now counted in unfathomable trillions. The Great War was unleashed upon Europe in a nightmarish conflagration, and in 1917 the Russian Revolution, funded by the banking houses of London and Wall Street, installed a vicious Bolshevik regime – dependent on Western credit for the whole of its existence. As for the rest of the twentieth century, we witness globalist plutocrats’ use of dialectics, wielding ideologies as weapons and pitting nation against nation, in the Hegelian procession toward the World State.
Today the realization of that Novus Ordo Seclorum draws ever nearer. And as its grand strategist emeritus Zbigniew Brzezinski makes clear, Washington’s “indispensability” marks only a period of transition:
In the long run, global politics are bound to become increasingly uncongenial to the concentration of hegemonic power in the hands of a single state. Hence, America is not only the first, as well as the only, truly global superpower, but is also likely to be the very last.
Brzezinski artfully neglects mention of what is intended to supersede American unipolarity: planetary tyranny, a system of total population control and resource extraction. Moreover, all of this is being constructed in the name of “liberty” and “equality,” abstractions serving as mere rhetorical cover for a demonic will to power. It is the liberal program of the oligarchs that has erected an all-pervasive surveillance grid unprecedented in scope, and it is their program that aims to rob man of his faith, family, and heritage, abolishing all that makes him truly human. In the novel The Possessed, Fyodor Dostoevsky articulated this drive with prophetic pathos through his utopian theorist Shigalev, who “proceeding from limitless freedom,” would “bring about an unlimited despotism.” Pyotr Verkhovensky, the leader of the story’s revolutionary cell, exults:
To level the mountains is a good notion, not a ridiculous one. I’m for Shigalev! We don’t need education, enough of knowledge! There will be enough material for a thousand years, but obedience must be arranged. There’s too little of one thing in the world: obedience. The wish for education is already an aristocratic wish. A little bit of family or love, and you have a desire for property. We will kill the desire: we’ll unleash drunkenness, scandal, denunciation; we’ll unleash unheard-of deviance; any genius we’ll extinguish in infancy. All toward one denominator: total equality… The slaves must have rulers. Total obedience, total impersonality, but once every thirty years Shigalev will set off a spasm, and everyone will begin to eat each other to a certain point, just so that everything’s not boring.
Behind every effective revolutionary stands the financier who created him. Equality to the slaves, an equality of the graveyard, and to the moneyed elite – godlike power over the Cosmos. In exchange for ever more “inherent rights” and meaningless depraved spectacle, socially-engineered mass man forfeits his freedom and his soul. With the West conquered, now all of humanity is set for standardization through postmodern colonialism, covert-action NGOs, carrier battle groups, and killer drones. Any sovereign state resisting the march of progress must be destroyed.
At the Cold War’s end, a defunct Soviet Union was supposed to fold into the world controllers’ planned capitalist-communist synthesis, and minor “rogues” like Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Libya could be dismembered with impunity in the meantime. From the chaos, destitution, and demoralization of the post-collapse period, however, another Russia has slowly re-emerged, its people broadly nationalist and increasingly unashamed of their thousand-year ancestral faith, Orthodox Christianity[i]. Nothing could be more intolerable to the robber-baron superclass, who have already for the past century waged ruthless war against religion and organic cultural identity in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere to impose their desolating vision upon mankind.
Defy the superclass: faith, heritage, and sovereignty.
Another round of US-Russia tensions might be unfolding, but such a clash was neither foreordained nor inevitable; between the two largely distant lands there is mutual nuclear deterrence and an absence of directly conflicting vital interests. Beyond inane sloganeering about democracy and human rights, more sophisticated Western strategists can cite new iterations of Halford Mackinder’s Heartland thesis or the latest Eurasian pipeline maneuvers as reasons to “contain” Russia. None of this accounts for a cosmopolitan oligarchy that sets policy, subsidizes scholarship, and manufactures consent in pursuit of its totalitarian agenda. In their quest to liquidate the American, the Russian, and every other unique people, the predators from the bankster international consider themselves above all laws human and divine. Yet the swelling arrogance of sociopaths brings about their downfall – and the sooner their crime spree comes to an end, the better chance we all might have for peace and reconciliation.
Checkmate: Is Russia Selling Oil For Gold?
Posted on December 19, 2014 by The Doc
Very few people understand what Putin is doing at the moment. And almost no one understands what he will do in the future.
No matter how strange it may seem, but right now, Putin is selling Russian oil and gas ONLY for physical gold.
How long will the West be able to buy oil and gas from Russia in exchange for physical gold?
And what will happen to the US petrodollar after the West runs out of physical gold to pay for Russian oil, gas and uranium, as well as to pay for Chinese goods?
This is called “Checkmate”, ladies and gentlemen. The game is over.

Very few people understand what Putin is doing at the moment. And almost no one understands what he will do in the future.
No matter how strange it may seem, but right now, Putin is selling Russian oil and gas only for physical gold.
Putin is not shouting about it all over the world. And of course, he still accepts US dollars as an intermediate means of payment. But he immediately exchanges all these dollars obtained from the sale of oil and gas for physical gold!
To understand this, it is enough to look at the dynamics of growth of gold reserves of Russia and to compare this data with foreign exchange earnings of the RF coming from the sale of oil and gas over the same period.
Moreover, in the third quarter the purchases by Russia of physical gold are at an all-time high, record levels. In the third quarter of this year, Russia had purchased an incredible amount of gold in the amount of 55 tons. It’s more than all the central banks of all countries of the world combined (according to official data)!
In total, the central banks of all countries of the world have purchased 93 tons of the precious metal in the third quarter of 2014. It was the 15th consecutive quarter of net purchases of gold by Central banks. Of the 93 tonnes of gold purchases by central banks around the world during this period, the staggering volume of purchases – of 55 tons – belongs to Russia.
Not so long ago, British scientists have successfully come to the same conclusion, as was published in the Conclusion of the U.S. Geological survey a few years ago. Namely: Europe will not be able to survive without energy supply from Russia. Translated from English to any other language in the world it means: “The world will not be able to survive if oil and gas from Russia is subtracted from the global balance of energy supply”.
Thus, the Western world, built on the hegemony of the petrodollar, is in a catastrophic situation. In which it cannot survive without oil and gas supplies from Russia. And Russia is now ready to sell its oil and gas to the West only in exchange for physical gold! The twist of Putin’s game is that the mechanism for the sale of Russian energy to the West only for gold now works regardless of whether the West agrees to pay for Russian oil and gas with its artificially cheap gold, or not.
Since Russia has a constant flow of dollars from the sale of oil and gas, it will be able to convert these dollars to buy gold at current gold prices, depressed by all means by the West. This equates gold price, which had been artificially and meticulously lowered by the Fed and ESF many time…via artificially inflated purchasing power of the dollar through market manipulation.
Interesting fact: The suppression of gold prices by the special department of US Government – ESF (Exchange Stabilization Fund) – with the aim of stabilizing the dollar has been made into a law in the United States.
In the financial world it is (generally) accepted as a given that gold is anti-dollar…i.e. the gold price runs inverse to value of the dollar.
In 1971, US President Richard Nixon closed the ‘gold window’, ending the free exchange of dollars for gold, guaranteed by the US in 1944 at Bretton Woods.
In 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin has reopened the ‘gold window’, without asking Washington’s permission.
Right now the West spends much of its efforts and resources to suppress the prices of gold and oil. Thereby, on the one hand to distort the existing economic reality in favor of the US dollar …and on the other hand, to destroy the Russian economy, refusing to play the role of obedient vassal of the West.
Today assets such as gold and oil look proportionally weakened and excessively undervalued against the US dollar. It is a consequence of the enormous economic effort on the part of the West.
And now Putin sells Russian energy resources in exchange for these US dollars, artificially propped by the efforts of the West. With these dollar proceeds Putin immediately buys gold, artificially devalued against the U.S. dollar by the efforts of the West itself!
There is another interesting element in Putin’s game. It’s Russian uranium. Every sixth light bulb in the USA depends on its supply, which Russia sells to the US too…for dollars.
Thus, in exchange for Russian oil, gas and uranium, the West pays Russia with dollars, purchasing power of which is artificially inflated against oil and gold by the efforts (manipulations) of the West. However, Putin uses these dollars only to withdraw physical gold from the West in exchange at a price denominated in US dollars, artificially lowered by the same West.
This truly brilliant economic combination by Putin puts the West led by the United States in a position of a snake, aggressively and diligently devouring its own tail.
The idea of this economic golden trap for the West is probably not authored by Putin himself. Most likely it was the idea of Putin’s Advisor for Economic Affairs – Dr. Sergey Glazyev. Otherwise, why seemingly not involved inbusiness bureaucrat Glazyev, along with many Russian businessmen, was personally included by Washington on the sanction list? The idea of an economist, Dr. Glazyev was brilliantly executed by Putin…but with full endorsement from his Chinese colleague –XI Jinping.
Especially interesting in this context looks the November statement of the first Deputy Chairman of Central Bank of Russia Ksenia Yudaeva, which stressed that the CBR can use the gold from its reserves to pay for imports, if need be. It is obvious that in terms of sanctions by the Western world, this statement is addressed to the BRICS countries, and first of all China. For China, Russia’s willingness to pay for goods with Western gold is very convenient. And here’s why:
China recently announced that it will cease to increase its gold and currency reserves denominated in US dollars.Considering the growing trade deficit between the US and China (the current difference is five times in favor of China), then this statement translated from the financial language reads:“China stops selling their goods for dollars”. The world’s media chose not to notice this grandest in the recent monetary historic event . The issue is not that China literally refuses to sell its goods for US dollars. China, of course, will continue to accept US dollars as an intermediate means of payment for its goods. But, having taken dollars, China will immediately get rid of them and replace with something else in the structure of its gold and currency reserves. Otherwise the statement made by the monetary authorities of China loses its meaning: “We are stopping the increase of our gold and currency reserves, denominated in US dollars.” That is,China will no longer buy United States Treasury bonds for dollars earned from trade with any countries, as they did this before.
Thus, China will replace all the dollars that it will receive for its goods not only from the US but from all over the world with something else not to increase their gold currency reserves, denominated in US dollars. And here is an interesting question: what will China replace all the trade dollars with? What currency or an asset? Analysis of the current monetary policy of China shows that most likely the dollars coming from trade, or a substantial chunk of them, China will quietly replace and de facto is already replacing with Gold.
In this aspect, the solitaire of Russian-Chinese relations is extremely successful for Moscow and Beijing. Russia buys goods from China directly for gold at its current price. While China buys Russian energy resources for gold at its current price. At this Russian-Chinese festival of life there is a place for everything: Chinese goods, Russian energy resources, and gold – as a means of mutual payment. Only the US dollar has no place at this festival of life. And this is not surprising. Because the US dollar is not a Chinese product, nor a Russian energy resource. It is only an intermediate financial instrument of settlement – and an unnecessary intermediary. And it is customary to exclude unnecessary intermediaries from the interaction of two independent business partners.
It should be noted separately that the global market for physical gold is extremely small relative to the world market for physical oil supplies. And especially the world market for physical gold is microscopic compared to the entirety of world markets for physical delivery of oil, gas, uranium and goods.
Emphasis on the phrase “physical gold” is made because in exchange for its physical, not ‘paper’ energy resources, Russia is now withdrawing gold from the West, but only in its physical, not paper form. China accomplishes this by acquiring from the West the artificially devalued physical gold as a payment for physical delivery of real products to the West.
The West hopes that Russia and China will accept as payment for their energy resources and goods…the “shitcoin” or so-called “paper gold” of various kinds also did not materialize. Russia and China are only interested in real gold and only the physical metal as a final means of payment.
For reference: the turnover of the market of paper gold, only of gold futures, is estimated at $360 billion per month. But physical delivery of gold is only for $280 million a month. This equates to a ratio of trade of paper gold versus physical gold to 1000 to 1.
Using the mechanism of active withdrawal from the market of one artificially lowered by the West financial asset (gold) in exchange for another artificially inflated by the West financial asset (USD), Putin has thereby started the countdown to the end of the world hegemony of petrodollar. Thus, Putin has put the West in a deadlock of the absence of any positive economic prospects.
The West can spend as much of its efforts and resources to artificially increase the purchasing power of the dollar, lower oil prices and artificially lower the purchasing power of gold. The problem of the West is that the stocks of physical gold in possession of the West are not unlimited. Therefore, the more the West devalues oil and gold against the US dollar, the faster it loses devaluing Gold from its not infinite reserves.
In this brilliantly played by Putin economic combination, physical gold from the reserves of the West is rapidly flowing to Russia, China, Brazil, Kazakhstan and India (i.e. the BRICS countries). At the current rate of reduction of reserves of physical gold, the West simply does not have the time to do anything against Putin’s Russia until the collapse of the entire Western petrodollar world. In chess the situation in which Putin has put the West, led by the US, is called “time trouble”.
The Western world has never faced such economic events and phenomena that are happening right now. The former USSR rapidly sold gold during the fall of oil prices. Today, Russia rapidly buys gold during the fall in oil prices. Thus, Russia poses a real threat to the American model of petrodollar world domination.
The main principle of world petrodollar model is allowing Western countries led by the United States to live at the expense of the labor and resources of other countries…based on the role of the US currency, dominant in the global monetary system (GMS) . The role of the US dollar in the GMS is that it is the ultimate means of payment. This means that the national currency of the United States in the structure of the GMS is the ultimate asset accumulator, to exchange which to any other asset does not make sense.
Led by Russia and China, what the BRICS are doing now is actually changing the role and status of the US dollar in the global monetary system. From the ultimate means of payment and asset accumulation, the national currency of the USA, by the joint actions of Moscow and Beijing is turned into only an intermediate means of payment. Intended only to exchange this interim payment for another and the ultimate financial asset – gold. Thus, the US dollar actually loses its role as the ultimate means of payment and asset accumulation, yielding both of those roles to another recognized, denationalized and depoliticized monetary asset – GOLD!
Traditionally, the West has used two methods to eliminate the threat to the hegemony of petrodollar model in the world and the consequent excessive privileges for the West:
One of these methods – colored revolutions. The second method, which is usually applied by the West, if the first fails – military aggression and bombing.
But in Russia’s case both of these methods are either impossible or unacceptable for the West.
Because, firstly, the population of Russia, unlike people in many other countries, does not wish to exchange their freedom and the future of their children for Western kielbasa (meat sausage). This is evident from the record ratings of Putin, regularly published by the leading Western rating agencies. Personal friendship of Washington protégé Navalny with Senator McCain played for him and Washington a very negative role. Having learned this fact from the media, 98% of the Russian population now perceive Navalny only as a vassal of Washington and a traitor to Russia’s national interests. Therefore Western professionals, who have not yet lost their mind, cannot dream about any color revolution in Russia.
As for the second traditional Western way of direct military aggression, Russia is certainly not Yugoslavia, not Iraq nor Libya. In any non-nuclear military operation against Russia, in the territory of Russia, the West led by the US is doomed to defeat. And the generals in the Pentagon exercising real leadership of NATO forces are aware of this. Similarly hopeless is a nuclear war against Russia, including the concept of so-called “preventive disarming nuclear strike”. NATO is simply not technically able to strike a blow that would completely disarm the nuclear potential of Russia in all its many manifestations. A massive nuclear retaliatory strike on the enemy or a pool of enemies would be inevitable. And its total capacity will be enough for survivors to envy the dead. That is, an exchange of nuclear strikes with a country like Russia is not a solution to the looming problem of the collapse of a petrodollar world. It is in the best case, a final chord and the last point in the history of its existence. In the worst case – a nuclear winter and the demise of all life on the planet, except for the bacteria mutated from radiation.
The Western economic establishment can see and understand the essence of the situation. Leading Western economists are certainly aware of the severity of the predicament and hopelessness of the situation the Western world finds itself in, in Putin’s economic gold trap. After all, since the Bretton Woods agreements, we all know the Golden rule:“Who has more gold sets the rules.” But everyone in the West is silent about it. Silent because no one knows now how to get out of this situation.
If you explain to the Western public all the details of the looming economic disaster, the public will ask the supporters of a petrodollar world the most horrific questions, which will sound like this:
– How long will the West be able to buy oil and gas from Russia in exchange for physical gold?
– And what will happen to the US petrodollar after the West runs out of physical gold to pay for Russian oil, gas and uranium, as well as to pay for Chinese goods?
No one in the west today can answer these seemingly simple questions.
And this is called “Checkmate”, ladies and gentlemen. The game is over.

113-Year-Old Man Credits These 5 Foods For His Long Life
Monday, December 22, 2014
By Heather Callaghan
Bernando LaPallo is a well-known supercentenarian who turned 113 this year - but only looks as though he could just barely start the retirement process.
Retire, he won't - even though he has vibrantly lived since 1901. He writes books and speaks around the country about natural health. The Brazilian-born man now resides in Mesa, Arizona.
His creed: You are what you eat.
He eats mostly organic veggies and fruits, walks, does crossword puzzles, reads voraciously, plays checkers and cultivates his faith, spirituality and the Golden Rule. He says to get plenty of rest and reports that he's never been sick.
What are his favored five foods?
He loves to tell people to use olive oil on their skin after a shower - soak it up and be wrinkle-free like him.
If you research him, you will a see a number of websites slapping fraudulent claims on him. It appears they don't believe his story and suspect that he just wants to profit or that he can't possibly be 113 due to his healthy appearance. They cite changing stories and a Social Security record dating a 1910 birth. Yet, it's helpful to remember that the media plays a part in the information. It's hard for people who have not been in this world nearly as long, to remember a time when Social Security did not exist - such as when LaPallo was born. According to him, as an African-American, he had to visit a separate office! And the recorder allegedly disregarded LaPallo's given birth date. His family uses the old family Bible pages as documentation and has issued a lengthy official statement regarding the claims - and the media portrayal.
It's understandable to want valid proof of age, but it hardly seems fair to make accusations without proof too. Not in the age of quick, sloppy journalism and not for supercentenarians who lived before the time of strict records. This is reminiscent of the 71-year-old woman who gets mistaken for her husband's granddaughter - and didn't get the chance to show her license on television as proof.
If, however, the Social Security office was correct and not his family Bible - that would still put him at a vigorous 103 age, an enviable centenarian.
next week...keep on believing.
will satisfy him with length of days, and shew him my
