Out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”

(Isaiah 2:3)

The Word Of The Lord

Dear Friends,

Greetings! Well the US government did it. They have put the Internet in the US, under FCC government control. There are three articles below that help to explain what happened and what it will mean to the users of the Internet both now, and in the future. The law is expected to be challenged in the courts by various parties who oppose federal bureaucratic interference in the running of the Internet.

If not struck down, it would seem pretty obvious where this is leading....in censorship of the Internet by the government thru the FCC, Federal Communications Commission. They are of course not saying this, they always give what sounds to be a nobel reason for their actions, but this is what it will probably amount to in the end.

Another thing we have done this week is to update and revise a document we first published in September 2009, called “The Word Of The Lord”. The subject matter being where Jesus will rule from during His one thousand year reign on earth, more commonly known as the millennium, following the Great Tribulation and the Wrath of God.

The news articles begin this week with an article written by Robert Cornuke titled “Prayers To God In Wrong Spot?

It is very similar in content to a paper we published in April 2013 titled “The Coming Temple”.

A copy of “The Coming Temple” was hand delivered to the personal secretary of Chaim Richman in September 2013. Chaim Richman is the International Director of the Temple Institute, which is dedicated to the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.


Out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”

(Isaiah 2:3)

The Word Of The Lord
(Updated and Revised)

Dear Friends,

Greetings! There has been numerous articles recently, dealing with the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem.

Those familiar with Bible prophecy will probably know the significance of these events, in that they herald the soon coming return of Jesus Christ and His thousand year reign on earth, more commonly referred to as the “millennium”.

We would like to give you some thoughts we have had on the coming Temple and let you draw your own conclusions. We found these points interesting and hope you may as well.

Thoughts concerning the third temple.

Revelation, Chapter 11, verses 1 and 2 says: “And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”

This temple described here seems that it could only be the rebuilt Jewish temple from which the Anti-Christ will rule. Now the question that arises, is that in verse one it calls this temple “the temple of God”. How can the rebuilt Jewish Temple from which the antichrist rules be called the “Temple of God”.

Also, Matthew 24:15 states, “When ye, therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand.)”

Again the Temple, or at least the inner sanctuary, is referred to as the holy place.

Daniel 8:11 and 12 states, “Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host,…And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of the transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground;...”

We again see in verse 12, “truth” in the temple and the prince.

One possible explanation could be that up until the time of the breaking of the covenant the religious Jews are actually allowed to worship in the temple. With today’s technology, through lasers or other means, a fake, but very realistic God, like Shekaniah Glory, could be made to appear between the wings of the Cherubim.

This explanation does not really answer the question as to why it is called “the Temple of God”. We know from Romans 2:28 and 29: “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” The Scriptures show that God is no longer in Jewish ceremonial worship.

Actually the Ark of the Covenant was never in Herod's Temple. The Ark disappeared sometime before the conquest of Jerusalem by Babylon in 586 BC.

It was also contained in the same writing, that the prophet, being warned of God, commanded the tabernacle and the ark to go with him, as he went forth into the mountain, where Moses climbed up, and saw the heritage of God. And when Jeremy came thither, he found an hollow cave, wherein he laid the tabernacle, and the ark, and the altar of incense, and so stopped the door.

And some of those that followed him came to mark the way, but they could not find it. Which when Jeremy perceived, he blamed them, saying, As for that place, it shall be unknown until the time that God gather his people again together, and receive them unto mercy. Then shall the Lord shew them these things, and the glory of the Lord shall appear, and the cloud also, as it was shewed under Moses, and as when Solomon desired that the place might be honourably sanctified.” ll Maccabees 2:4-8

A possible clue could come from Isaiah 2:2-4: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

We know that these verses refer to the “Thousand Year Reign” of Christ upon the earth. We also know that Jerusalem serves as the center of Christ’s Kingdom on earth from where “the law and the word of the Lord” go forth. (Even though in Revelation 11:8 it is referred to as “Sodom and Egypt”.)

Then in Revelation 20:7-9: “ And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

Again “the beloved city” would seem to be referring to Jerusalem during the thousand year reign of Christ. Therefore Jerusalem seems to be of primary importance throughout the entire thousand year reign of Christ. Which brings us to a possible explanation poised at the beginning of this paper.

No where that we can find in the Bible is the fate of the coming Temple explained. In the past we had just assumed it was destroyed during the Battle of Armageddon, but no where is that written, that we are aware of.

The coming temple, from what we understand, is to be rebuilt and designed to the specifications of the earlier temples. If the Temple is not destroyed what is to prevent

Jesus from cleansing and sanctifying that coming Temple for his use, and earthly headquarters during the millennium?(“for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.”)

This could explain why Revelation 11:1 calls it “the Temple of God”.

Daniel 8:13 and 14 says; “Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.” Cleansed not destroyed!

Has there ever been a precedent of such an event occurring before? Yes, the entire conquest of Canaan/Israel and Jerusalem. The land of Canaan was occupied by seven Canaanite tribes who dwelt in thirty one fortified cities which included amongst others Jericho and Jerusalem. Jerusalem before its conquest by Israelites was called Jebus and inhabited by a sub grouping of Canaanites called Jebusites.

To give you some idea of Canaanite religious practices, we will quote from Halley's Bible Handbook: “Baal was their principal god; Ashtoreth, Baal's wife, their principal goddess. She was the personification of the reproductive principle in nature. Ishtar was her Babylonian name; Astarte her Greek and Roman name, Baalim, the plural of Baal, were images of Baal...In excavation at Gezer, Macalister of the Palestine Exploration Fund, 1904-1909, found, in the Canaanite stratum, which had preceded Israelite occupation, of about 1500 B.C. the ruins of a 'High Place,' which had been a temple in which they worshipped their god Baal and their goddess Asntoreth (Astarte).

Under the debris, in the 'High Place,' Macalister found great numbers of jars containing the remains of children who had been sacrificed to Baal. The whole area proved to be a cemetery of new-born babes.”

The very parcel of ground where Solomon's Temple was believed to have been built, was bought by King David from a Jebusite named Araunah.

The point being here with that reference, is that God took a Satanic strong hold and turned it into the place of His presence here on earth, where He dwelt between the wings of the Cherubin represented as the Shekaniah Glory.

If He could do that with a seat of Satan could He not do it with the rebuilt Temple from where Jesus will rule and reign for one thousand years after the battle of Armageddon!

In the Doway-Rheims version of the Bible in Jeremiah 38, it talks about a great destruction taking place in Jerusalem and the temple being saved. Jeremiah.30:18; “Thus saith the Lord: Behold I bring back the captivity of the pavilions of Jacob, and will have pity on his houses, and the city shall be built in her place, and the temple shall be found according to the order thereof.” (Other versions of the Bible use the word palace instead of temple.)

This, however, raises another question concerning Ezekiel, chapters 40-48, dealing with the building of another temple, sometimes referred to as “Ezekiel’s Temple”. From what we understand this temple has never been built. There are also marked differences in the practices of this temple in that it does not exclude the gentiles. If according to Revelation 19:15 …he (Jesus) will rule them with a rod of iron:…could this be something very similar to the Old Testament law?

There are also other important differences: A prince will enter through the eastern gate: “Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut. Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.”

In the previous temples that were built the high priests entered through the south gate. Also from reading these scriptures especially verse three, the prince and the Lord are two separate individuals.

Another thing different about this Temple is that, it is much bigger than the two temples proceeding it. There is, apparently, not enough room to build it, with all its court yards etc.

(For the location of the previous temples see our paper “The Coming Temple”. They were not over the Dome of the Rock or the Haram Al-Sharif but approximately eight hundred feet south of the Dome of the Rock in what today is called the City of David.)

One possible explanation for this is the geography of the area will be altered after Jesus returns, as explained in Zechariah 14:4: “And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south."

This restructuring of the land after the Mount of Olives is split could provide the area needed for the completion of Ezekiel’s temple.

Zechariah 14:8 is very interesting: “And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.”

This is very similar to Ezekiel 47: 1-12:

Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.

And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.

Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.

Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over. And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.

Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.

And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh. And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.

But the miry places thereof and the marshes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt. And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

Today the Brook Kidron flows very intermittently toward the Dead Sea, but with the advent of the Mount of Olives splitting it could very well open up under ground reservoirs that could turn the Brook Kidron into a river that flows into the Dead Sea and create another river that could flow into the great Mediterranean Sea. Another possibility, and more probable involves the Gihon Spring.

In Ezekiel’s Temple it describes the Levites, (who worshipped idols), still having a place of service in the Temple. Ezekiel 44:10-14

The Levites who went far from me when Israel went astray, and who wandered from me after their idols, must bear the consequences of their sin. They may serve in my sanctuary, having charge of the gates of the temple and serving in it; they may slaughter the burnt offerings and sacrifices for the people and stand before the people and serve them. But, because they served them in the presence of their idols and made the house of Israel fall into sin, therefore I have sworn with uplifted hand that they must bear the consequences of their sin, declares the Sovereign LORD.

They are not to come near to serve me as priests or come near any of my holy things or my most holy offerings; they must bear the shame of their detestable practices.

Yet, I will put them in charge of the duties of the temple and all the work that is to be done in it.”

It seems pretty clear from Zechariah 14:2,3,8-10, that once the Lord gathers the nations against Israel, He then turns around and defends them.

For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”




Temple Mount 'misplaced': 'We're sitting on kryptonite'

Published: February 22, 2015


It has been called the most contested plot of land in the world — the fissure at which three major faiths come together, and break apart.

There have been holy wars fought over it and holy writ foretelling of battles yet to come. It’s Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.

But what if history got it wrong? What if the spot where Solomon built the first Jewish Temple, and Herod built the second, was actually about 600 feet to the south, in a place known as the ancient City of David?

Enter Robert Cornuke. He travels the world solving Bible mysteries: Noah’s Ark, the Ark of the Covenant, he’s studied them in depth. Now, he’s obsessed with the Jewish Temple.

His self-deprecating sense of humor and easy-going style have helped him gain access to some of the world’s most sensitive archaeological sites.

But don’t be fooled.

He attacks each mission with the doggedness of a street cop skilled in investigations. That’s because he was a street cop for nearly a decade in California before a three-hour gun battle with a man holed up with 700 rounds of ammo some years ago caused him to rethink his career options.

His new book, “Temple: Amazing New Discoveries that Change Everything About the Location of Solomon’s Temple,” is turning heads in scholarly circles for its pure audacity.

To suggest that the traditional Temple Mount, where Jews have prayed at the Wailing Wall and where Muslims pray at the Dome of the Rock, is actually not the holy ground they believe it to be, is sacrilege to many historians and archaeologists, not to mention clerics.

Yet, his case is so well researched that it’s hard to ignore. Many are reading, and re-reading, perhaps hoping to find some obvious blunder that would allow them to discount its conclusion.

Because, if it is true, that means the unthinkable for Muslims, and opens new possibilities for Jews.

“We have an opportunity to impact history, positively or negatively,” Cornuke said. “What we’re sitting on is the kryptonite of Bible archaeology.”

He was careful to point out this was not his idea. He merely followed up and expanded upon the work of Ernest L. Martin, an archaeologist who wrote the 1994 book, “The Temples that Jerusalem Forgot.”

Filmmaker Ken Klein has also delved into the subject in his documentary, “Jerusalem and the Lost Temple of the Jews.”

“This is not my brainchild,” he told WND. “I’m the benefactor of Dr. Martin, who really came up with this research but his book didn’t get much attention because it contained a lot of minutia that people had to wade through. I tried to write a book that is readable.

“The site has been misdiagnosed and been accepted for so long that no one has ever dared challenge it,” Cornuke continued. “I researched it to the best of my ability, from the standpoint of a police investigator, and came up with a reasonable conclusion.”

Because he’s dared to question what has become historically sacrosanct – the location of the first and second Jewish temples – he’s getting a lot of phone calls.

“I’ve had a lot of scholars, guys with PhDs and working on PhDs, going over this with me, and two are now doing their doctoral dissertations on where the temple was located, because this has opened up a whole new vein,” Cornuke said. “It seems preposterous but these guys are calling me and saying, ‘Wait a minute; this is crazy, and why haven’t we ever seen this before?’”

His book has only been out about six months, but it’s starting to upset the apple cart.

“It’s just one of those things, word of mouth, where people are talking about it, and literally I can’t get much work done now because I’m taking calls and referring people to our distributor,” he said. “It started small at first and is really catching on now.”

He realizes some will scoff while others will read and appraise the body of evidence on its merits.

“Bible archaeology is considered to be the most controversial subject within archaeology, and the Temple Mount is the most controversial part of Bible archaeology, according to Discovery Channel,” Cornuke said. “Literally, what I’m doing is taking on the most controversial subject in archaeology. So I’m surprised I have not received a personal email or someone hasn’t called me or confronted me and said, ‘You’re wrong with this premise, and here’s why.’”

So, exactly what is the proof behind his premise? And if the Western Wall is not the ruins of the ancient temple, then what is it?

The answers Cornuke gives to these questions, if proven true, could rock the prophetic world and shake the Middle East to its core.

Not one stone left upon another’

He starts his story with the strategic placement of the Dome of the Rock and moves on to the teachings of Jesus and an eyewitness account by Jewish historian Flavius Josephus.

The Arab caliph Adb al-Malik built the Dome of the Rock in 691 A.D. on a site chosen largely because it overshadowed the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the place where Jesus is believed to have risen from the dead. Muslims see their religion as the perfection of Judaism and Christianity and this supersessionist mentality influences their architecture throughout the Middle East. To build the Dome of the Rock larger and above the church commemorating Christ’s resurrection was meant as a statement to Christians, who were the dominant religion in the area before the Muslim invaders arrived.

Then comes the prophecy of Jesus. In Matthew 24, He and His disciples exited the Temple, and Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another that shall not be thrown down.”

But the Western Wall where Jews still pray has thousands of stones remaining intact. They believe it is the western wall of their temple and, therefore, a holy place, often referred to as the Wailing Wall.

But historical accounts say the Romans so fully destroyed the Jewish Temple in 70 A.D., it became nothing but a field of weeds. Many Jews were carried off to captivity, and those who were left with a memory of the true location eventually died off, Cornuke argues.

Josephus’s account of Roman fortress

But there is a written account from Josephus, the first century author of “Jewish Wars,” whose works are considered highly credible on other topics, but for some reason his description of the temple location is denigrated and dismissed by modern historians.

Josephus wrote that the site that today is considered the Temple Mount was actually a Roman fort called Fort Antonia. The fortress was large enough to support the Roman Tenth Legion, about 6,000 soldiers plus support staff for a total of about 10,000 personnel.

“The Roman fort would need at least the area of the present day Temple Mount (36 acres) to sustain itself,” Cornuke writes. “Josephus wrote that the fort was said to be much larger than the temple, but scholars say the temple area is much bigger than the fort. Again, who is right? According to many academics, Josephus exaggerated and is the culprit.”

View of the western “Wailing Wall” with Dome of the Rock in the background, Jerusalem, Israel.

In 1973, the famous historian Michael Avi-Yonah made a model of first-century Jerusalem showing the Roman fort as a small appendage to the temple on the northwest corner.

This fits nicely with tradition while ignoring eyewitness accounts, Cornuke says. “This has all resulted in us having today almost every television documentary on the subject of the temple showing the Avi-Yonah model as an ‘accurate in every way’ illustrative prop.”

There’s only one problem: That prop is far too small to accommodate the Roman legion described by Josephus.

And there is another caveat to consider. Apparently a translator of Josephus’s work mistranslated a word, tagma, or legion as a “cohort,” which is a much smaller contingent of about 480 men. Every other time Josephus uses the word tagma, he uses it to describe much larger numbers of soldiers, such as the fifth, 10th, 12th and 15th legions.

“A small Roman cohort would certainly harmonize with a small Roman fort as we have in the Avi-Yonah model,” Cornuke writes.

But would 480 men have been sufficient to maintain order in a province populated by riot-prone Jews? During religious festivals, Jerusalem’s population swelled from about 175,000 during the time of Christ to upward of 300,000.

Not to mention, the Book of Acts says Paul was arrested and escorted by 470 men from Fort Antonia to Caesarea. “So, are we to believe that a garrison of only about 480 men would send 470 of them off to Caesarea to protect a single prisoner bound in chains, and then leave the entire garrison practically empty with a handful of soldiers to defend and control as many as a quarter million, depending on festival crowds?” Cornuke asks.

Another eyewitness and clues from the Bible

Another eyewitness was Eleazar Bin Jari, commander of the Jewish rebels at Masada. He described Jerusalem as lying in total ruins: “It (Jerusalem) is now demolished to the very foundations, and hath nothing left but that monument of it preserved, I mean the camp of those (the Romans) that hath destroyed it, which still dwells upon its ruins.”

In other words, nothing was left standing in Jerusalem other than the Roman Fort Antonia, with its high stone walls still intact. Eleazar said the temple was completely gone, even its very foundation uprooted, fulfilling the prophecy of Jesus.

This account also fulfills the prophecy of Micah 3:12: It says “Zion (which is the City of David) shall be plowed like a field. Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins. And the mountains of the Temple like the bare hills of the forest.”

So, if Jerusalem was left with the western wall of the temple still standing, that forces one to consider thinking of Micah as a false prophet.

Cornuke cites a slew of other Bible verses that support his theory about the temple site being at “the stronghold of Zion” in the City of David.

A powerful clue can be found in 2 Chronicles 3:1, which describes the location where Solomon built the temple “on Mount Moriah, where the Lord had appeared to his father David, at the place that David had prepared on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.”

This threshing floor, where wheat was separated from chaff, had been purchased by David after he conquered a 12-acre fortress on a hill south of today’s Old City section of Jerusalem. That hill is today located within the City of David Jerusalem Walls National Park.

Another clue, the clincher for Cornuke, came when he read the New Testament Book of Acts, Chapter 21: 27-32. It describes a riot scene in which Paul was arrested at the temple by the commander of the Roman garrison.

The commander “immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down to them (toward the temple).”

“The ‘aha moment’ for me came when I read Acts 21,” Cornuke said, “where it says they went down the steps to get Paul. Well, there are no steps coming down from the traditional Temple Mount complex. From a cop’s point of view, there’s no other way.”

Or, as he writes in his book, “If the Temple Mount was the place of Paul’s riot scene, then the big question is where would someone go down from to reach Paul?”

Of course the answer is, you couldn’t. Unless the traditional Temple Mount was actually the Roman Fort and the true temple site was below, at the City of David.

Clues from scrolls and in water

Cornuke also found clues in the Dead Sea Scrolls, which contained this cryptic instruction:

“You shall make a channel all-round the laver within the building. The channel runs (from the building) of the laver to a shaft, goes down and disappears in the middle of the earth so that the water flows and runs through it and is lost in the middle of the earth.”

The description is of a natural spring of water below the Jewish temple.

Tacitus, the Roman historian, likewise recorded that the temple at Jerusalem had a natural spring of water that welled from its interior.

There is only one spring this could be referring to, the Gihon Spring, in the old City of David, also called the stronghold of Zion in Scripture.

“There is no other such spring anywhere else in Jerusalem,” Cornuke writes. “The spring connection, especially a robust gushing spring, seems to be like a laser pointer aimed at the City of David and not at the Temple Mount as the temple site.”

Cornuke cites Joel 3:18, which says, “A fountain shall flow from the house of the Lord,” and Psalm 87:5,7, which says, “And of Zion it will be said … Both the singers and the players on the instruments say, ‘All my springs are within you.’”

And another nugget is found in Ezekiel 47:1-2:

“Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south to the altar.”

The many animals slaughtered for the temple sacrifices would have required a powerful water source to wash away the tremendous amount of blood that would have been left behind. The City of David site has this water source, the traditional Temple Mount would have been nearly a quarter mile away from the Gihon Spring.

By this point, the long-held narrative of history’s writers begins to unravel. As a former cop, Cornuke is not so surprised.

“You know how many people are sitting in jail right now who were falsely accused, because you can always take somebody and make him the bad guy but not everything fits,” Cornuke told WND. “It’s like a rubrics cube that starts coming together, but you’re just a little bit off. Or think of the wheel on a car. If you don’t have the right size wheel, the holes aren’t going to align with the little studs, and so you have to find parts that fit. And nothing really fit on the Temple Mount complex; it just didn’t align there.”

Implications ‘staggering’ for Jews and Muslims

Bible scholar Chuck Missler, when presented with Cornuke’s evidence, said the implications for the future are staggering.

“As Chuck Missler told me, if this is true, this changes everything,” Cornuke told WND. “This turns archaeology in the Middle East on its head.”

It’s a game-changer because it releases the Jewish people to start rebuilding on a site that is already in their control.

“What it means is, the Jews now have a place they can rebuild their long-foretold temple, and for Muslims, they would lose control, which they love having over the Jews,” Cornuke said. “They can say, ‘You can pray here’ or ‘You can’t pray there,’ and the Jews are really frustrated by all this. But if they can rebuild there, in the City of David, and can do it tomorrow, what does that do with end-time prophecy, which says the antichrist will go there and sit in the temple and that leads to the coming of Christ? People have been fighting over that patch of real estate for thousands of years and that now kind of changes the whole game in the Middle East.”

Cornuke calls it “the biggest blunder in archaeological history that no one has really challenged.”

“Every book I read said this is the one place that is undisputed and that we can really rely upon, but archaeology is not a science. It’s an art. You have to take a lot of things in to develop a conclusion, and then it’s your best guess. It’s not empirical evidence. I’m not an archaeologist. I have PhD in Bible and theology, and a background as a police investigator, so what I do have is a very well-established background in investigations. I used those skills.”

Cornuke said he lacks the professional constrains of archaeologists, freeing him to take more risks.

“Scholars want to be published. They want prestige, or they want to be promoted,” he said. “That’s the university systems they work under.

“Police detectives have a completely different method: We’re interested in, what are the problems and what are the possibilities?”

“Josephus said the fortress overlooked the temple. Nothing fits on the Temple Mount, but the tour guides have said it for so many years, the same thing year after year. After so long, no one ever questions it. This is the way it is.”

By its very nature, university scholarship is reluctant to “test the waters,” Cornuke said.

“They want to stay in the safe harbor because testing things would open them up to scrutiny, and you’re going to get hammered, whether you’re right or wrong, and most scholars don’t want to have that, so they wait on others.

“I don’t want to bash scholarship,” he continued. “I want to say, hey, this is the evidence, and the evidence is very provocative to say the least.”

The Jewish response

On a recent visit to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Cornuke said he did an informal straw poll of Jewish people at the Wailing Wall.

“Everyone over 40 years old said, ‘I don’t care what you say, or what evidence you have, it’s not going to change the way I think. My father brought me here, my grandfather brought me here, and it’s all been at the Western Wailing Wall.’”

Those under 40 were less wedded to tradition.

“They said, ‘Cool, now we can rebuild our temple.’ They were excited. They wanted to know more. Then their father would come over and say, ‘Don’t talk anymore to this gentile.”

I even had a man who represents an Israeli cabinet official that wanted to get my book to (Prime Minister) Benjamin Netanyahu, so I signed it and he was delivering it that day to Netanyahu.”

That was just two weeks ago.

“And I’ve had several rabbis that have contacted me,” Cornuke said. “I gave a talk in New Hampshire where the Jewish community was asked to come out and hear my presentation. Before I even started a father, mother, daughter and son got up and walked out. They obviously wanted to make a point. But after my presentation, the Jewish community, who was there in numbers, stood up with tears in their eyes and said we are sorry we have missed this in history, and thank you.’ I was astounded at that response.”

Cornuke says he can understand the reluctance for Jewish leaders in Jerusalem to accept his theory, because to do so requires them to come to grips with the fact that they’ve been praying at the wall of a Roman fort all these years. But if evaluated objectively, he sees the evidence as overwhelming.

“This is not a guess by me. As a police investigator, I feel this book would win a jury over,” he said. “I didn’t write it to be right; I wrote it as a gift to the Jewish people, so they can rebuild their temple.”

But the response of older Jews at the Wailing Wall was not positive.

“They kinda held up their hands, and they pointed to the foundation and said, ‘Look, there are thousands of huge stones, foundation stones, here,’ and your Jesus is wrong, because our Temple is here.’”

So Cornuke, or perhaps others following up his lead have more work to convince the Jewish people they have a free and clear site upon which to rebuild their holy temple

“There comes a time when you have to force feed your mind past reason and logic to accept some of these things that tradition teaches,” he said. “Jesus said: ‘Every stone will be thrown down,’ and every word of His prophecy has been fulfilled.”

If some aren’t ready to accept his findings, that’s OK, he said.

“We will never discover anything,” he said. “God reveals it in His time, in His way, for His glory, but He can always use a knucklehead cop from California to do this.”

Holistic Christian families now criminalized in America; parents having to flee with children

Sunday, February 22, 2015 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The old adage "let's just agree to disagree" is no longer a relevant concept when it comes to your personal medical views. It seems that the new American normal is for the government to literally mandate that you and your children consume junk foods and pharmaceuticals and get vaccinated, or else face harsh punishment, as evidenced by a string of recent state interventions against families who made medical decisions that differ from what's popular in the mainstream.

There's no room for agreeing to disagree anymore when what someone else disagrees with you about can potentially land you in prison or have your children taken away from you by Child Protective Services (CPS). Erica Carey and Cleve Goheen-Rengo, a couple from Washington state, recently learned this after being snitched on by a neighbor and tracked down by police and CPS officers over their decision to make alternative medical choices for their children.

According to reports, the couple decided to have a home birth last fall in which they birthed a set of twin boys, without ever going to a hospital or getting an ultrasound. A nosy neighbor heard Erica giving birth to the children inside her home and decided to call the police, who showed up at the residence and promptly invaded the couple's personal privacy, accusing them of failing to adequately nourish and care for their children.

The couple's children were ultimately removed from their own home for a short time over these allegations, escalating the situation rapidly to the point that, once the family got the children back, they decided to flee the area in order to avoid having their children abducted again by the state. A "Be On The Lookout" warning was issued throughout the West Coast as a result, and one obedient statist, after spotting the couple at a gas station in Santa Cruz, immediately called the police.

After arriving on the scene, California Highway Patrol (CHP) and CPS officers proceeded to arrest Erica while taking her and her husband's children into state custody. Her crime? Well, there doesn't appear to be one other than her and her husband's personal decision to avoid giving birth at a superbug-ridden hospital, without drugs or assistance from a licensed nurse or physician, which is their God-given right.

The state denies that this is the case, of course, but refuses to provide any concrete evidence of abuse or wrongdoing, which leads us to believe that this is yet another case of police state inebriation, with state officers drunk on power and perceived authority.

"Send a message to America for me," screamed a sobbing Erica as she was being forced into a police vehicle during her arrest. "Children don't belong to the government. The government belongs to the people."

US parents who make medical decisions that go against state recommendations increasingly being persecuted

There's a growing pattern of this type of police state abuse occurring all across the country. Children are being forced to undergo chemotherapy treatments, against their own will, as in the case 17-year-old Cassandra from Connecticut. And with all the recent vaccine hysteria, there are now calls by some doctors for parents of unvaccinated children to be arrested and have their children abducted by the state -- it's happened numerous times in the past.

These types of cases represent nothing short of medical tyranny, plain and simple. If the state disagrees with your mode of action in response to a particular disease, or even just your personal decisions for everyday life, then you may be accused of putting the lives of yourself and your children in danger, and punished accordingly.









Says Erdogan government closes border to believers, lets jihadists cross

Published: February 25, 2015

The government of Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan was accused today of contributing to the deaths of Syrian Christians attempting to flee massacres at the hands of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria militants.

The claim, made on Vatican Radio by Jacques Behnan Hindo, a prominant Syrian Catholic Archbishop of Hasakeh-Nisibi, came just a day after ISIS fighters abducted at least 90 Assyrian Christians from villages near the Turkish border that had been under the protection of Kurdish military forces, reported Agence France-Presse.

“Every day, families are emigrating from Damascus by plane because of the blockade we have around us,” Hindo said.

“In the north, Turkey allows through lorries, Daesh (ISIS) fighters, oil stolen from Syria, wheat and cotton: all of these can cross the border but nobody [from the Christian community] can pass over.”

Syria’s Assyrian Christian population was estimated at 30,000 four years ago when the current conflict began, a small minority of the then-estimated total Christian population of around 1.2 million.

WND reported that despite hardships imposed on minority Christians in the region by resurgent Islam and the brutal public torture-killings inflicted on Christians by ISIS, the White House has adopted a policy on fleeing Christians similar to that reportedly imposed by Turkey.

Administration plans call for up to 10,000 Syrian refugees, most of them Sunni Muslims – like ISIS – to be resettled in cities throughout the U.S. in 2015, with that figure expected to surge to near 75,000 over the next five years.

No such plans exist for their targeted Christian population.

The State Department’s December announcement was careful to explain that the U.S. will take in only those Syrians who are “persecuted by their government.” Christians in Syria are being killed by ISIS and other Muslim rebels, not by “their government,” but the Sunni Muslims are being killed by the Shiite-led government.

Greek Catholic sources have said more than 300,000 Syrian Christians are among the refugees driven from their homes. But neither the United Nations nor the Obama administration has shown a willingness to bring large numbers of Christian Syrians to the United States, focusing instead on Muslim refugees who pose a greater security risk.

The Canadian government said in December that it was considering giving priority to Christian and Yazidi refugees fleeing Syria and has since come under strong condemnation from the U.N. and non-governmental organizations such as Amnesty International. Canada’s left-leaning Liberal Party also roundly criticized the plans by conservatives to focus on non-Muslim refugees.

“As far as global needs go, the Middle East has plenty of safe refuges for Sunni and Shiite Muslims; it has none for Christians and Yazidis,” writes Daniel Greenfield, a New York-based journalist and fellow at the Freedom Center who focuses on radical Islam. “It only makes sense that the West should fill the need for safe refuges that don’t exist in the Muslim world for non-Muslims, while the Muslim world takes in its own refugees.”

With Syrian Christians unable to depend on their Turkish neighbor or the U.S. as a safe haven, Archbishop Hindo is placing his hope elsewhere to save the Christian community.

“The Kurds are gathering their forces to go and fight them,” he said.



Kosher marijuana could soon be on sale in New York, after it receives the kosher stamp from the Orthodox Union's kosher certification agency.

13:41 24.02.2015(updated 13:58 24.02.2015)

Kosher marijuana for Orthodox Jews could soon be making an appearance in New York for medical use, The Jewish Daily Forward reported yesterday.

The head of the Orthodox Union’s kosher certification agency, Rabbi Moshe Elefant, claimed that preliminary talks with several companies, interested in kosher cannabis supplies, have already been held. However, he emphasized, though Orthodox Jews approve the sale of medical marijuana, they reject the use of the plant for recreational purposes.

According to the Jewish Daily Forward, it has been shown that cannabis eases pain, anxiety, appetite loss and nausea in patients suffering from a number of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, cancer and multiple sclerosis.

While marijuana is a plant and doesn’t in itself need kosher certification, due to the fact that smoking pot is still prohibited in New York State, patients will have to consume it by way of capsules, food or drink which will mean a kosher certification for Orthodox patients is required.

Rabbi Moshe Elefant stated that they wouldn’t have any difficulty certifying medical marijuana, according to The Forward.

The legalization of cannabis for medical purposes is gradually becoming more and more accepted across the country. New York has become the twenty-third state of the US where physicians have the official right to prescribe marijuana as a supporting treatment. The drug can be prescribed for a maximum of 30 days at a time.

Medical marijuana is likely to be available on market in New York in 2016.




Case in appeals court to stop mandatory Ashtanga yoga teachings

Published: February 21, 2015


A legal case over a public school in California that has students “bowing to the sun god” is looming in an appeals court, where a team of lawyers advocating for student and parental rights is challenging the Encinitas Union School District’s Ashtanga yoga program.

It has broad implications, and it’s getting attention not just in the United States but worldwide.

Austria, for example, recently removed a similar teaching from its classes because it conflicts with students’ Catholic beliefs, and the Indian Supreme Court is examining whether the Ashtanga yoga philosophy “would discriminate against the Muslim and Christian minorities.”

“At its core, this case is about the American constitutional ideal of religious freedom,” explained Dean Broyles, who runs the the National Center for Law & Policy, which is fighting the school district’s yoga campaign.

The case is now before the California Court of Appeals in San Diego.

Broyles has been joined by Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute.

“This school district has essentially adopted a state religion and is forcing it upon our young children by requiring this class to be taken,” Dacus said. “These actions violate the fundamental right of parents to raise their children according to their beliefs, and they disregard the Constitution that this nation was founded upon.”

Also filing briefs in opposition to the yoga program were the World Faith Foundation and the Church State Council, while the California School Boards organization and the Yoga Alliance have lined up behind the school.

“No court in the past 50 years has permitted public school officials during regular classroom instruction to lead students to actively participate in devotional religious activities or practices like Ashtanga yoga’s Surya Namaskara,” Broyles said.

“Public schools may certainly teach about religion because religion is historically and culturally important. But the state is not constitutionally permitted to endorse or promote religion or religious practices,” he said.

“Courts are especially sensitive to the coercive pressures involved when the government, because education is compulsory and supported by tax dollars, leads young impressionable children with tender consciences through group liturgical/ritual religious exercises or activities including bowing to the sun god,” said Broyles.

Encinitis district officials declined to respond to WND requests for comment. A spokeswoman told WND a statement might be available later.

The case was brought by the Sedlock family, whose children were being subjected to the training of Ashtanga yoga, which was being provided to the school under a contract with a religious group that promotes the benefits of the meditation and worship.

The case is against the Encinitas Union School District, whose officials argue they have removed religious aspects of the faith activity even though a lower court found that some of the activities in the school, such as sitting and bowing, were identical to the religious “version.”

The NCLP said the question remains whether the district “is advancing or endorsing Ashtanga yoga – the religious nature of which is undisputed – or whether the district succeeded in stripping yoga (which the trial court found to be religious) of religion by creating a ‘religion-free’ form of yoga, dubbed ‘EUSD yoga.’”

At the district court level, the judge ruled that yoga is “religious” and that the school’s practices are “identical” to the faith-based practices in yoga. For example, part of what students do is to take various “praying hands” positions and bow down “to the Hindu solar god Surya,” but the lower court ruled the district could do it anyway.

“The duty and right to direct the care and upbringing of children, especially regarding religious matters, belongs to parents, not the government,” said Broyles. “Although yoga is very popular today, it is not the job of state to pick religious winners and losers, as the district has clearly done in Encinitas. We must not allow the state or cultural elites to decide by fiat which popular and politically correct religious beliefs and practices, such as Hinduism and yoga, are acceptable for the state to promote to our children with our taxpayer resources, and which beliefs and practices, such as Christianity, are not acceptable to advance.”

One friend-of-the-court brief in the case said the district “boldly posits that its yoga program ‘is no more religious than football.’”

“EUSD’s ‘football’ comparison is absurd and offensive,” the brief says. “Perhaps what EUSD really means is that for many, yoga appears to be a purely ‘physical practice.’ But it does not logically follow that because yoga appears merely physical to an uninformed observer that, therefore, yoga is as non-religious as football.”

The brief argues football “has no connection with religious practices engaged in by millions of religious adherents, as is the case with Ashtanga yoga and Hinduism.”

“Second, individuals do not engage in football for ‘spiritual development.’ Third, unless one counts sports bars and man caves, there are no Ashrams or Shalas dedicated to football in Encinitas, while Encinitas hosts world-renowned Hindu worship centers. Fourth, football players do not, in practicing football, engage in religious rituals such as closing their eyes to meditate in the lotus position or bowing down to a sun god who is worshiped by millions,” the brief says.

Broyles said a “reasonable observer who is informed about history and context of the government practice at issue, here yoga, would clearly understand that EUSD is endorsing or promoting religion.”

“In fact, since the advent of EUSD’s yoga program, students have actually made and continue to make religious associations with the practice of yoga. This includes chanting ‘om’ in yoga class and assuming the lotus position while closing their eyes and meditating during EUSD field trips off campus,” he said.

It was the Jois Foundation that “partnered” with EUSD to teach Ashtanga yoga in place of “traditional physical education.”

The group has had the support of influences as prominent as Oprah Winfrey’s boyfriend, Stedman Graham, who has lobbied on behalf of the program, which Jois wants to expand nationwide. The private organization’s interest remains significant, as it paid the school to be allowed to teach its yoga, and the teachers must be approved by the foundation.

WND previously reported the Jois Foundation, also known as Somina, included among its founders Sonia Tudor Jones, an ardent devotee of yoga who wanted to “spread the gospel of Ashtanga through the country and even internationally.” Jones worked on a plan for a three-year “scientific study” in the schools using the religious program.

The appeal of the decision by San Diego Superior Court Judge John Meyer contends that the district, “by partnering with Sonima to actively promote Ashtanga yoga, has violated the First Amendment by advancing and endorsing religious practices and excessively entangling itself with religion.”

Broyles noted, “The fact that the superintendent whose district has received $2 million from Jois/Sonima to develop their yoga curriculum by offering up EUSD’s more than 5,000 children as spiritual test-subjects, also serves on Sonima’s board advisory board should raise big red flags.

“Is this not a conflict of interest?”

He also noted that Sonima already has launched an effort to take its promotion of Ashtanga yoga nationwide


Vladimir Putin: War with Ukraine would be 'apocalyptic' but unlikely

By Holly Yan, CNN

Updated 6:40 AM ET, Tue February 24, 2015

(CNN)A war with Ukraine would be "apocalyptic" but will probably never happen, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"I believe such (an) apocalyptic scenario is unlikely, and hope that it will never get to that point," he told Russian media Monday.

Putin said he's confident the crisis will stabilize if the Minsk Agreement is implemented.

The accord, between Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany, includes a ceasefire between Ukraine and pro-Russian separatists and an agreement for both sides to pull back heavy weapons.

Despite frequent violations of the ceasefire, Putin said there's no need for immediate action beyond the Minsk Agreement, such as more international peace talks or the formal recognition of rebel separatist groups like the People's Republic of Donetsk and the People's Republic of Lugansk.

"I really hope (the Minsk Agreement) is implemented, and if it is -- it is the right way to normalization of situation in that Ukrainian region," Putin said.

But the chaos on the ground in eastern Ukraine suggests the truce is crumbling. In the past week, shelling has intensified in the city of Donetsk.

And on Friday, Ukraine's National Defense and Security Council reported 300 violations of the ceasefire, which was less than a week old.

Ukraine has said its forces won't back down until attacks from the rebels stop. Pro-Russian separatists have also accused Ukraine of instigating violence.

He also said there's no chance Crimea -- which was annexed by Russia last year -- will go back in Ukraine.

"Regarding the return of any territories, such things are of revengeful nature, and it is not about return of some territories somewhere," Putin said

"Crimea will remain Russian, Ukrainian, Tatar, Greek, and German -- it will be a home to all these nations. With regard to its nationality, Crimean people made their choice, which we must respect."

Anti-U.S. sentiment grows

On the streets of Moscow, many Russian point their fingers at the United States for the Ukraine crisis.

The latest polls show 81% of Russians have a negative view of the U.S. -- the highest number since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

State-run media reports the United States wants to encroach on Russia.

And the Kremlin's propaganda campaign seems to be paying off.

"My attitude to America is bad," one woman said. "The way I watch the news, I realize the Americans want to get a hold of half of Russia."

Russia has denied widespread claims that it is supporting the pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine and has sent its own troops to the border.

The United Nations says more than 5,000 people have been killed since mid-April amid the fighting between pro-Russian rebels and Ukrainian troops. Many of those killed were civilians.

CNN's Erin McLaughlin and Elena Sandyrev contributed to this report.



US-Led EU Could Spell the End of Europe – Czech Politician

11:05 27.02.2015(updated 11:07 27.02.2015)

Former Czech health minister Ivan David believes Europe is offered nothing good by the US and risks being turned into a battlefield once again.

Europe should maintain its partnership with Russia if it wants to survive, Ivan David, who is also a member of the country’s ČSSD Social Democratic party, argues in an article, carried by the Prvnizpravy.cz. online paper.

“Europe, whose elites are taking orders from an alien, American, power, is leading the whole continent to the slaughterhouse,” David insists, adding that the United States has nothing good to offer Europe.

“We’ve got to buy their weapons, bow to their diktat (TTIP — The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) and send our soldiers to fight in the wars and conflicts the Americans unleash the world over.”

Ivan David also warns that Europe could eventually turn into a battlefield once again.

“The European ‘elites’ are being promised they will be allowed to survive if they diligently serve [American interests] at the expense of their own peoples,” he continues, adding that if Europe wants to stay alive it cannot afford having such ‘elites’.

“We need new elites,” Ivan David insists.


End Of The American Dream

Are We Being Prepared To Believe That Extraterrestrials Seeded Life On Earth And That Jesus Was An Alien?

By Michael Snyder, on February 18th, 2015

There are those who believe that life was first brought to Earth from far across the universe. In fact, this week there were headlines in news sources all over the world about how British scientists had discovered “evidence” that extraterrestrials may have seeded life on this planet. And as you will see later on in this article, some of the “most brilliant minds in science” have been promoting this theory for a long time. But now the support for an extraterrestrial origin for life on Earth seems to be reaching a crescendo. In addition to unprecedented scientific support, we are being constantly bombarded by messages in popular culture that our planet has been in contact with aliens in the past and that they are about to make contact again. This is a theme which we see in dozens of novels, television shows, movies and video games. So could it be possible that we are being “prepared” to believe that extraterrestrials seeded life on our planet? And as you will see below, there are even many that actually believe that Jesus was an alien. Yes, that probably sounds very strange, but there are some very important people that are actually convinced that this is true.

But first let’s talk about the origin of life on Earth. The theory that life originated elsewhere in the universe and was eventually brought here by extraterrestrials has been around for decades. It is known as “directed panspermia” and this is what Wikipedia has to say about it…

Directed panspermia concerns the deliberate transport of microorganisms in space, sent to Earth to start life here, or sent from Earth to seed new solar systems with life by introduced species of microorganisms on lifeless planets. The Nobel prize winner Francis Crick, along with Leslie Orgel proposed that life may have been purposely spread by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization, but considering an early “RNA world” Crick noted later that life may have originated on Earth. It has been suggested that ‘directed’ panspermia was proposed in order to counteract various objections, including the argument that microbes would be inactivated by the space environment and cosmic radiation before they could make a chance encounter with Earth.

But even though this theory has been around for a very long time, it is only in recent years when it has seen a surge in popularity.

And as I mentioned above, this week we learned that UK scientists say that they have found some “evidence” for this theory…

UK scientists have just found some evidence supporting a theory so out of this world it makes others look unimaginative by comparison. A strange, tiny object may suggest that Earth was actually seeded by extra-terrestrials to create life.

It sounds nuts, but first let’s at least look at the findings. Astrobiologist Milton Wainwright and a team of researchers at the University of Buckingham recently discovered a microscopic metal sphere in the dust from the team’s atmospheric balloon. Specifically, the hair-length ball is made of titanium and vanadium with a viscous liquid, and most intriguingly, a biological core.

What on Earth would a ball filled with alien goo be doing, well, on Earth? According to the theory of “directed panspermia,” coined by Nobel Prize winner Francis Crick, such objects may have been used by life forms from outside our Solar System to bring creation to our planet. “One theory is it was sent to Earth by some unknown civilization in order to continue seeding the planet with life,” said Wainwright in an interview while referencing Crick’s work.

Very interesting.

And it is important to note how eagerly those scientists and mainstream publications are interpreting the biological material that was found as “alien goo”.

In this world, most people end up believing exactly what they want to believe, and there are many in the scientific world that now want to believe that aliens brought life to this planet.

At this point, even some of the biggest stars in the entire scientific world are admitting that they are open to this theory.

For example, consider what evolutionist Richard Dawkins told Ben Stein during an interview for the movie “Expelled“…

BEN STEIN: What do you think is the possibility that Intelligent Design might turn out to be the answer to some issues in genetics or in evolution?

RICHARD DAWKINS: Well, it could come about in the following way. It could be that at some earlier time, somewhere in the universe, a civilization evolved, probably by some kind of Darwinian means, probably to a very high level of technology, and designed a form of life that they seeded onto perhaps this planet. Now that is a possibility, and an intriguing possibility. And I suppose it’s possible that you might find evidence for that if you look at the details of biochemistry, molecular biology, you might find a signature of some sort of designer.

Crazy stuff.

But wait, there’s more.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, there are even some that believe that Jesus Christ was an extraterrestrial. In fact, this was a topic on a BBC broadcast recently…

A program aired on the British Broadcasting Corporation recently held a discussion as to whether or not major religious figures like Jesus Christ and the Buddha were from other planets.

In a religion-focused series titled “The Big Questions”, host Nicky Campbell oversaw a discussion asking the query, “Have beings from other planets guided our religions?”

“Last month NASA’s Kepler space telescope identified another planet that might have the right conditions for life,” said Campbell.

“It will be no surprise to the followers of those religions who’ve long believed that life – possibly not as we know it – exists elsewhere in the galaxy. Life which has possibly exerted its influence here on planet Earth. Have beings from other planets guided our religions?”

But it isn’t just some fringe crazies that believe this stuff.

Investigative reporter Tom Horn has discovered that some top Vatican scholars are also into this kind of thing…

Do Vatican scholars actually believe Jesus might have been the Star-Child of an alien race? Does Consolmagno and/or other Jesuits secretly hold that the “Virgin Birth” was in reality an abduction scenario in which Mary was impregnated by ET, giving birth to the hybrid Jesus? As incredible as that sounds, you should prepare for the unexpected answer as this series unfolds.

All this would seem impossible theology if not for the fact that other high ranking Vatican spokespersons—those who routinely study from the “Star Base” (as local Indians call it) on Mt. Graham—have been saying the same in recent years. This includes Dr. Christopher Corbally, Vice Director for the Vatican Observatory Research Group on Mt. Graham until 2012, who believes our image of God will have to change if disclosure of alien life is soon revealed by scientists (including the need to evolve from the concept of an “anthropocentric” God into a “broader entity”), [iv] and the current Vatican Observatory director, Father Josè Funes who has gone equally far, suggesting that alien life not only exists in the universe and is “our brother” but will, when manifested, confirm the “true” faith of Christianity and the dominion of Rome.

With each passing year, more people than ever are looking to the stars for the answers to the most important questions that we face.

Thanks to a relentless bombardment from books, video games, movies and television shows, there are now hundreds of millions of people all around the globe that are anticipating that alien lifeforms could make contact with us at any moment.

So are we being prepared to believe that extraterrestrials seeded life on this planet?

Are we being prepared to accept them as our friends or even potentially as our saviors?



FCC adopts historic Internet rules

By Jose Pagliery

Net neutrality explained, once & for all

The FCC has passed a historic measure to more strictly regulate the Internet.

The new rules, known as "net neutrality," act to provide equal opportunity for Internet speeds and access to websites.

ADSPACE: technology/quigo/ctr.220x200 ADSPACE-END

The central question was whether network owners -- like Comcast (CMCSA) or Time Warner Cable (TWC) -- can discriminate what runs on their cables. The FCC's answer on Thursday was: No.

The Democratic-led commission approved 3-to-2, split along party lines, to assert extra government authority over the Internet.

Now for the wild claims on both sides: "We saved the Internet!" or "We've destroyed it with government bureaucracy!"

Don't believe the hype. Take a deep breath. It's a long, tricky road ahead.

The FCC rules won't be official until maybe summertime. Then major telecom companies will challenge new rules in court. A judge might put the rules rules on hold. The next president, if Republican, could let this fizzle away.

That's why, in the near term, nothing changes. No, Netflix won't suddenly stream any faster. No, AT&T and Comcast won't abruptly stop laying down high-speed fiber cables in your neighborhood as retaliation. And yes, Netflix can still cut deals with broadband companies for faster access to a network.

So what just happened, exactly? The FCC just granted itself the power to defeat a raging, fire-breathing monster: the monopolistic network owners who can kill Internet freedom by blocking websites -- or by creating an Internet fast lane for the privileged, few, rich tech companies that can pay for it.

But this monster is actually a phantom menace. Sure, in the past, telecoms have been bullies. Verizon blocked Google Wallet. AT&T blocked video chatting apps. Comcast slowed down file-sharing websites like BitTorrent. Rural telephone provider Madison River blocked Vonage's over-the-Internet phone calls. However, the FCC used existing rules to fix those problems.

The new rules essentially maintain the status quo. The Internet sure feels free today. It'll feel the same way tomorrow.

That's why some worry about how the FCC just ensured net neutrality. To enforce fairness rules, the agency will regulate network owners by scooping them up under Title II of the 1934 Telecommunications Act, a specific set of regulations that apply to phone companies. Telecoms say the rules don't match the services they provide. They don't trust the FCC's promise that it will apply only a tiny fraction of those rules and won't regulate rates and increase taxes.

"Assurances like these don't tend to last very long," warned Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai. "Expect ... regulation to ratchet up as time goes on."

Meanwhile, Tom Wheeler, the FCC chairman who ditched his original dialed-back plan for this one, assured this isn't a government power grab.

"This is no more a plan to regulate the Internet than the First Amendment is a plan to regulate free speech," he said. "They both stand for the same concept: openness, expression and an absence of gatekeepers."

How did we start caring about this? Credit comedian John Oliver, who got enough viewers of his HBO show that a record 4 million Americans sent comments to the FCC.

He framed it from the point of view of the average person dealing with their Internet service provider. Plans are expensive, service is inexplicably spotty and you have little choice. Clearly, the network owners are the bad guys.

During Thursday's hearing, the testimony of those who spoke in favor of the FCC's new rules all took that populist tone. Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson thanked the FCC for "protecting the Internet as an engine for economic opportunity." Celebrated technologist Sir Tim Berners-Lee said this ensures modern entrepreneurs the same opportunity he had when he created the World Wide Web 26 years ago.

After the vote, President Obama issued this statement via Twitter: "Today's FCC decision will protect innovation and create a level playing field for the next generation of entrepreneurs."

But wait, there's a third option. As this fight makes its way through the courts, Congress has the opportunity to stand up and write rules that work too.

After all, both network owners and the websites that flow data through them have a point. Outright blocking and anti-competitive behavior is unfair and should be illegal. On the other hand, for technical reasons, network owners need to manage traffic. Your video stream needs to move faster than your email for your experience to feel smooth.

That's why critics call the Title II approach -- what the FCC did today -- a blunt instrument. But it's not clear that it's as wonderful -- or terrible -- as everyone says.

Rob Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a technology policy think tank, laments how the conversation has spiraled out of control.

"This has become a debate about a false choice: letting carriers do whatever the heck they want and overly burdensome regulations," Atkinson said.




Obama accused of meddling in party-line vote

Published: February 26, 2015

The Democrat majority on the Federal Communications Commission adopted sweeping new rules Thursday for the Internet that critics charge were pushed forward by pressure from President Obama and now most certainly will face legal challenges as well as possible intervention from a Congress unhappy with the takeover of yet another part of America’s economy.

The controversy over the move and the politics that influenced it has been building for months. The last time such rules were initiated, the courts intervened and threw them out.

The Washington Examiner reported a legal challenge is expected to develop again. The FCC vote was 3-2, with the Democrats supporting the rules and Republicans opposing.

Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John Thune, R-S.D., told the newspaper he will bring forward a “legislative solution” to what the Democrat majority on the FCC board adopted.

“One way or another, I am committed to moving a legislative solution, preferably bipartisan, to stop monopoly era phone regulations that harm Internet consumers and innovation,” he said.

The Internet as it existed until now with nominal government bureaucratic oversight has allowed the creation of billion-dollar companies like Google and Facebook and lets consumers even in remote parts of the landscape shop, watch videos and connect with others more or less instantly.

Just about anyone can set up a website, and it’s one of the few places in America where the sky’s the limit. Literally.

That, however, apparently was not good enough for Obama, with the FCC board adotingsome 322 pages of rules to govern Web services. The rules were kept secret until the vote.

L. Gordon Crovitz at the Wall Street Journal said the so-called “net neutrality” campaign could be called “Obamacare for the Internet,” but that would be “unfair to Obamacare.”

Officials say the changes are based on a 1934 utility regulating plan, and unless Congress or the courts block the rules, “it will be the end of the Internet as we know it,” Crovitz wrote.

Fox said the plan, “on it surface,” is to stop service providers from creating paid “fast lanes” for rich interests.

“But the rules, more broadly, would put the Internet in the same regulatory camp as the telephone by classifying it like a public utility, meaning they’d have to act in the ‘public interest’ when providing a mobile connection to your home or phone.”

That, critics charge, means the administration eventually could become involved in determining what is allowed, based on the “public interest” idea.

Fox reported Republican commissioner Ajit Pai is warning of the new “government control of the Internet.”

It also were his comments that linked Obama’s influence to the decision.

He had said the FCC was reversing course from previous positions because “president Obama told us to do so.”

Pai also warned the plan “opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes. Read my lips: More new taxes are coming. It’s just a matter of when.”

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said in a Breitbart report that things will deteriorate quickly.

“That’s the FCC, that’s the Department of Internet that we’re going to get,” he said.

As late as this week, there was opposition even from within the FCC board, with two commissioners asking for a delay, and Congress asking that consumers be allowed to see the rules. The Hill even reported one of the three Democrats on the five-member FEC commission was so unhappy she was asking for changes.

The changes from Mignon Clyburn would have left in place the central and most controversial component of Chairman Tom Wheeler’s rules, the Hill said, “the notion that broadband Internet service should be reclassified.”

USA Today reported Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, also questioned whether the FCC has been “independent, fair and transparent” in making the new rules.

His letter to the FCC noted the process “was conducted without using many of the tools at the chairman’s disposal to ensure transparency and public review.”

The premise behind “net neutrality” is that the Web is a mess and large corporations are abusing consumers, manipulating their data, putting their Web needs behind those who pay more. The only solution, the thinking goes, is for the government to take control.

Supporters of the regulations are hard to find, but the far-left American Civil Liberties Union posted a list of the “abuses” it has found.

For example, it cited AT&T’s “jamming” of a rock star’s political protest, Comcast’s “throttling” of online file-sharing, work by Verizon to cut off a program containing what it considered “unsavory” content and others.

But even the ACLU site noted that AT&T said its decision was a mistake and it would work to fix it, Comcast’s fight continues in federal courts and Verizon reversed its censorship “after widespread public outrage.”

The solutions in each case included public pressure.

The organization said “net neutrality” is just applying age-old rules regarding common resources, like canal systems, railroads, public highways and telephone and telephone networks, to the Web.

But Pai and Lee Goodman, two of the FCC commissioners, had written in Politico that the freedom that exists on the Internet right now “has given the American people unprecedented access to information and an amazing array of opportunities to speak, debate and connect with one another.”

The real reason for the proposed rules, they wrote, is the perception on the part of some that freedom is “a vacuum in need of government control.”

They warn it will start with regulation of rates for access.

“It will institutionalize innovation by permission – giving advisory opinions on prospective business plans or practices (and companies will ask before innovating for fear of what will happen if they don’t).”

Online traffic will have to handled in prescribed manners, and trial lawyers will cash in with class-action lawsuits over the rules, they said.

They continued: “The purpose is control for control’s sake. Digital dysfunction must be conjured into being to justify a public-sector power grab. Aside from being a bad deal for everyone who relies on the Internet, this Beltway-centric plan also distracts the FCC from what it should be focusing on: increasing broadband competition and giving consumers better broadband choices.”

For examples of what government’s micromanagement of the Internet might look like, some analysts said, people should look at Amtrak and the U.S. Postal Service.

At Techzone360, John Wind wrote: “The reason there are so many successful Internet companies such as Google, Facebook, Netflix, etc., is that they started with a blank slate and created a new and better way to create and deliver products and services.”

He pointedly noted: “They didn’t try to amend an 80-year-old FCC law. They had a fresh start.”

He explained that the providers must be able to survive financially to have an effective Internet.

Regulated fees will come, the NSA will be watching and there will be taxation “at every level,” he summarized.

“The FCC and net neutrality is not the right answer. Let’s get it right this time,” he said.

Fox News denior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano expects the courts to dash the Obama administration’s hopes and plans anyway.

In an interview conducted for WND by Radio America’s Greg Corombos, he said: “People don’t know the danger that is coming. The danger that is coming is a gaggle of bureaucrats here – three Democrats and two Republicans, the Republicans will probably dissent – claiming they have the power to regulate the Internet.”

He said Congress has passed no statute authorizing new government controls on the Internet, and the First Amendment clearly states that neither Congress nor any government agency it created can make a law restricting the freedom of speech.

“They claim that the purpose of their regulation is to prevent the Internet from affording priority and faster service to certain preferred users,” Napolitano explained. “Would we all like to have fast service? Yes. Do we all know how to get fast service? Yes, we do. Might that cost us something? Yes, it might, but at the present time it is free from government regulation.”

He said the actual plan, however, is far different.

“If the government regulates the Internet and tells providers how fast they can move information, we will soon see the government regulating the cost of the Internet and we will eventually, just like with broadcast television, see the government regulating the content of the Internet,” Napolitano said.



Dozen more mysterious GIANT craters in Russia spark fears of looming natural disaster

FOUR new mysterious "giant craters", and many smaller ones, have appeared in northern Russia - sparking fears over a looming natural disaster in the Arctic.

Published: 07:22, Tue, February 24, 2015


Scientists said the Siberian craters were likely caused by explosions from gas hydrates ENDMAINIMAGE

Observation from space has revealed the dramatic mushrooming of the holes, believed to be caused by methane gas eruptions in melting permafrost due to climate change, scientists revealed today.

A leading Russian expert sounded an alert over safety because one new Siberian crater, surrounded by at least 20 "baby holes", is just six miles from a major gas production plant.

He predicts up to 30 more are waiting to be discovered.

Scientsts are still baffled by the exact processes causing the craters and respected Moscow expert Professor Vasily Bogoyavlensky today called for "urgent" investigation of the new phenomenon amid safety fears.

This picture shows a map of the four craters VASILY BOGOYAVLENSKY

Until now, the existence of only three Siberian craters had been established.

"We know now of seven craters in the Arctic area," he told The Siberian Times - referring to the larger holes.

"Five are directly on the Yamal peninsula, one in Yamal Autonomous district, and one is on the north of the Krasnoyarsk region, near the Taimyr peninsula.

"We have exact locations for only four of them.

"The other three were spotted by reindeer herders.

Rising temperatures are believed to create ideal conditions for more craters VASILY BOGOYAVLENSKY

It is important not to scare people, but this is a very serious problem. We must research this phenomenon urgently to prevent possible disasters

Professor Bogoyavlensky

"But I am sure that there are more craters on Yamal, we just need to search for them.

"I would compare this with mushrooms.

"When you find one mushroom, be sure there are few more around. I suppose there could be 20 to 30 craters more."

Two of the newly-discovered large craters - also known as funnels to scientists - have turned into lakes, revealed Professor Bogoyavlensky, deputy director of the Moscow-based Oil and Gas Research Institute, part of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

"It is important not to scare people, but this is a very serious problem.

"We must research this phenomenon urgently to prevent possible disasters. We cannot rule out new gas emissions in the Arctic and in some cases they can ignite."

Satellite images of the giant craters that have alerted scientists VASILY BOGOYAVLENSKY

The first hole was spotted in 2013 by helicopter pilots 20 miles from a gas extraction plant at Bovanenkovo, on the Yamal Peninsula.

An examination of the area using satellite images, comparing landscapes in the past with the present day, has alerted Russian experts to the prospect that the phenomenon is more widespread than first thought.

Experts are particularly interested in a crater they name B2, which just six miles to the south of the gas field at Bovanenkovo.

Old satellite imagery shows no sign of craters at the site but there now exists a lake, 100 metres by 50 metres, surrounded by 20 smaller holes filled with water.

These mini-craters are just a metre or two in diameter.

And, following the discovery of a funnel at Antipayuta, on the Yamal Peninsula, nearby residents told scientists about seeing a flash of light, possibly as a result of gas exploding.

Yamal lake showing signs of 'degassing' VASILY BOGOYAVLENSKY

Professor Bogoyavlensky said: "We need to answer now the basic questions: what areas, and under what conditions, are the most dangerous?

"These questions are important for the safe operation of the northern cities and infrastructure of oil and gas complexes."

There is already scientific concern that Lake Baikal, the largest and oldest freshwater lake in the world, but well outside the Arctic Circle, could be among the places sitting on a "time bomb" ready to explode.

Scientists have previously said there is growing evidence that rising temperatures is the main catalyst triggering the blasts. Any continued increase - as is predicted by meteorologists - could create the ideal conditions for more craters to be formed.

It is thought permafrost at the sites could have one million times more methane hydrates locked inside than ordinary gas. One expert estimated that the total explosive power of the craters has been the equivalent of about 11 tonnes of TNT.

Satellite imagery shows signs of craters at a site that previously had none VASILY BOGOYAVLENSKY

There are also two tectonic fault lines across the Yamal Peninsula, with another possibility being that the blow-outs are caused by a deadly combination of heat leaving these rifts, a higher than normal air temperature, and the "fire ice" melting.

The professor revealed one picture of a Yamal lake showing signs of what he calls "degassing".

"This haze that you see on the surface shows gas seeps from the bottom of the lake to the surface," he said.

"We call this process 'degassing'."

He is not sure if this lake, too, was previously a crater "or if the lake formed from another process.

"More important is that the gases from within are actively seeping through this lake."

Spying by the NSA is worse than in Nazi Germany

FEBRUARY 22, 2015

We noted in 2012 that Americans are the most spied upon people in world history.

Top NSA officials previously said that we’ve got a “police state” … like J. Edgar Hoover – or the Stasi – on “super steroids”.

Spying by the NSA is also worse than in Nazi Germany:

The tyrants in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia and Stasi Eastern Europe would have liked to easedrop on every communication and every transaction of every citizen. But in the world before the internet, smart phones, electronic medical records and digital credit card transactions, much of what happened behind closed doors remained private.

Indeed, a former lieutenant colonel for the East German Stasi said the NSA’s spy capabilities would have been “a dream come true” for the Stasi.

NSA contractor Edward Snowden said in 2013 that NSA spying was worse than in Orwell’s book 1984. (See update below).

We noted at the time that the NSA is spying on us through our computers, phones, cars, buses, streetlights, at airports and on the street, via mobile scanners and drones, through our smart meters, and in many other ways.

And we learned that same year that the NSA is laughing at all of us for carrying powerful spying devices around in our pockets.

A security expert said the same year:

We have to assume that the NSA has EVERYONE who uses electronic communications under CONSTANT surveillance.

What’s happened since these statements were made? Spying has only gotten worse. The government is doing everything it can to completely destroy privacy.

Postscript: Nothing has changed … and it will keep on getting worse and worse unless we the people stand up for our rights against those who want to take our freedom away.

Update: Bill Binney is the high-level NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information. A 32-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency, Binney was the senior technical director within the agency and managed thousands of NSA employees.

Binney tells Washington’s Blog:

While the spying programs that we have heard about so far deal with the “who and what” and on occasion the “why” of what people on the planet are doing, Treasuremap is the NSA/GCHQ/etc. program to acquire and follow the movements of people (objective is to follow 4 billion folks) simultaneously in near real time. So, Treasuremap gives them the “when and where” aspects of individual lives.

All in all, this gives the participating governments (primarily the Five Eyes countries) unrestricted knowledge of individual lives.

Current surveillance is far beyond an Orwellian state.

Although on a much smaller scale, we need to remember that these type of activities were some of the primary “articles of impeachment” of president Nixon.



Feds look to adopt 322 pages of fresh taxes, regulations

Published: February 24, 2015


The Internet as it now exists with nominal government bureaucratic oversight has allowed the creation of billion-dollar companies like Google and Facebook and lets consumers even in remote parts of the landscape shop, watch videos and connect with others more or less instantly.

Just about anyone can set up a website, and it’s one of the few places in America where the sky’s the limit. Literally.

That, however, apparently is not good enough for President Obama, since the Federal Communications Commission is planning to adopt some 322 pages of secret rules to govern Web services.

L. Gordon Crovitz at the Wall Street Journal said the so-called “net neutrality” campaign could be called “Obamacare for the Internet,” but that would be “unfair to Obamacare.”

The Internet rules, which have been kept secret, are scheduled to face a vote by the Federal Communications Commission Thursday. They force massive regulation on the huge Web industry, he said.

Officials say they are based on a 1934 utility regulating plan, and unless Congress or the courts block the rules, “it will be the end of the Internet as we know it,” Crovitz wrote.

As late as Monday, two of the five FCC commissioners were asking for the rules to be delayed and the public given an opportunity to see and comment on them. Perhaps the requests are at least partly in the hope that the board will get it right this time, unlike earlier instances in which plans have been adopted only to the thrown out by the courts.

On Tuesday, the Hill reported one of the three Democrats on the five-member FEC commission was so unhappy she was asking for changes.

The changes from Mignon Clyburn would leave in place the central and most controversial component of Chairman Tom Wheeler’s rules, the Hill said, “the notion that broadband Internet service should be reclassified so that it can be treated as a ‘telecommunications’ service under Title II of the Communications Act, similar to utilities like phone lines.”

But Clyburn wants to “eliminate a new legal category of ‘broadband subscriber access services,’ which was created as an additional point of legal authority for the FCC to monitor the ways that companies hand off traffic on the back end of the Internet,” the report said.

Others were demanding that the FCC release a copy of the rules for the public to see. The commission now is not scheduled to release them until after it votes, not unlike then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s statement that Congress would have to adopt Obamacare so the people could find out what was in it.

USA Today reported Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, was questioning whether the FCC has been “independent, fair and transparent” in making the new rules.

His letter to the FCC noted the process “was conducted without using many of the tools at the chairman’s disposal to ensure transparency and public review.”

The issue of Internet regulation has been pending for more than a decade, and so far some 4 million members of the public have commented.

WND has reported that Obama is using net neutrality as part of his effort to establish a success for his second term in office.

But his lobbying has generated a negative response many times.

“It’s not 1934, and we are not dealing with telephones you hold in two parts,” Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said earlier.

“I’m proud of the work Senate Republicans have done to lay out an agenda for encouraging growth and innovation here in America, and we must defend against the use of a decades-old regulatory framework that would hurt that progress,” Hatch said.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released a one-liner that reverberated around the Web: “The Internet should not operate at the speed of government.”

Several attempts to impose regulations already have been struck down by the courts.

And House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said earlier the plan is just fine if you like “unnecessary government interference.”

“The Internet’s revolutionary success is due in large part to an entrepreneurialism that adapts and innovates freely as the Internet evolves,” he said. “A free and open Internet allows Americans to operate their small businesses, communicate freely, and stay competitive in a changing global economy. Instead of bowing to political pressure from the president, the FCC should take into account the strong bipartisan support for keeping the Internet free and open.”

Jim Lakely, the Heartland Institute’s director of communications, says Obama “doesn’t understand how the Internet works, or how it became a technological wonder and an economic powerhouse.”

“The president’s call for the FCC to apply Title II regulations to broadband would put all the progress in our digital economy at risk by applying 19th-century regulatory thinking to a 21st-century technology,” he said.

The Newest Country to Defy the Banksters

Posted on February 20, 2015 by The Doc

Resistance to Banker Rule Spreads…

As we’ve discussed before, the bankers have need of keeping the dream of Eurasia from becoming a reality. It is the thing which they pull out all the stops to prevent. Many countries in the recent past, especially those in the Middle East, or in Europe’e periphery, who’ve dared to assert their own interests, have been put down in the most gruesome ways. Yet the tide seems to be turning against the controllers!

In fact, considering the location of the latest rift growing in Europe, it’s becoming apparent that the deep-seated resentment is turning into outright opposition. As the cracks in the DC/NATO armor become more severe, more and more countries are now openly doing things, which they’d only previously whispered of in secret.

Take the case of the newest country(on the ever-growing list of countries) to valiantly reject US/UK/IMF- funded, technocrat-flavored, “Uni-polar” governance…


Little Background on Hungary

Going as far back as their founding under Saint Stephen(pictured below), Hungary has been a very different sort of place in central Europe.

Despite often being surrounded by many stronger neighbors since time immemorial, their institutions, traditions, religious convictions, and their language have always set them apart. Their Magyar language particularly, being so completely different than every other language on the European continent, has helped to insulate them from outside cultural forces, and has helped maintain a vibrant Hungarian identity that the people have fiercely defended.

For centuries, the people of Hungary(the ethnic Magyars), have proudly guarded their sovereignty, and defiantly fought anyone who encroached upon them and their lands. Whether it was Turkish invasions(which they doggedly resisted for almost 300 years), or the Soviet occupation, the Hungarian people have risen up to throw off the yoke of oppression, and to establish control of their own homeland. Theirs is a very real sense of the importance of freedom, since in their long history, they’ve suffered under everything from occupations and partitions, to ethnic cleansing.

Over time this staunch resistance is something that has come to typify the cultural mindset of their people. Resisting foreign encroachments into their country has become every bit as Hungarian, as a steaming bowl of goulash(which is delicious, by the way)!

So, perhaps it seems only fitting then, that this newest attempt to roll back bankster tyranny should come from their country. This time though, the oppression being resisted isn’t military occupation(at least, not yet), but rather corporatism, IMF debt-slavery, DC diktats, and EU belligerence toward Russia.

Particularly though, this latest thorn in the banksters’ side, springs from Prime Minister Viktor Orban, and his political party, Fidesz. For the past few years, he and his party’s actions have given Western ruling powers some major fits in their country.

Orban’s Courageous Audacity

Take, for instance, their stance on GMO’s and Monsanto. Now, as we know, DC takes its love for its pet corporations very seriously, as its corporate tentacles are a major tool in the banker arsenal for nifty things: like colonization of other countries, destroying local sovereignty, as well as siphoning off coveted resources into their coffers. So when Prime Minister Orban banned all GMO’s from their country’s agricultural scene several years ago, and actually plowed up over 1,000 acres of crops, which were found to be of the Monsanto variety, it definitely put him on Washington’s radar.

Now, just doing something like that alone, will more than get you expunged from the White House’s Christmas card list, but Viktor Orban didn’t stop there though! Nooo sirree!

In fact, in 2010, he kicked it up a notch by placing a tax upon banks(rather than cut pensions, as the IMF suggested) to help close their budget deficit! Ouch! As expected, the banks(especially foreign banks), with the backing of the IMF, lobbied against these moves, but went down to stunning, inglorious defeat!

Later on, after being hounded by DC’s banking officials about implementing further austerity measures, Prime Minister Orban amusingly responded by unfriending the IMF on facebook! and rejecting the IMF’s calls for more austerity,explaining that cutting the pension funds of his citizens, and removing the bank tax was unacceptable.

Under Orban’s leadership, Hungary has not only managed to pay down their near $26 billion IMF loan, but did so early. In 2013, with just $2 billion in payments left to go, he actually requested, via the central bank, that IMF officials should pack their bags and leave, noting that their “services” were no longer needed!

What really irritates DC though, is that Orban seems to have the overwhelming backing of his people! Time after time, the Fidesz party has not only won re-election, but they’ve won by a landslide. In 2014, his party rode back into power, with over 2/3 of the vote! Many Hungarians finally seemed to have found a nationalist champion. This has made it difficult to claim that Orban is simply acting alone, or without the consent of Hungary.

From beating down austerity, to ridding Hungary of the IMF, Viktor Orban’s actions and reforms continue to cause the gnashing of teeth in the Anglo-American banking camps. Even with all these huge moves against the banking empire though, nothing has topped his latest moves. In fact, the newest actions out of his government have made globalists in DC literally howl.

The Cherry on Top

For you see, brothers, it now appears that Orban and his party have charted a course to establish stronger ties with Putin and Russia, and not just a “wee bit” stronger, either.

“Watchman, how strong are we talking about, here?”

How about “green-lighting a transit for Russia’s natural gas pipelines, without consulting Brussels” kinda strong? In fact, just a few months ago, Orban’s administration managed to pass a law making South Stream passage within Hungary possible. Its passage wasn’t even close. The vote’s final tally was132 in favor, to 35 opposed.

Just think about this for a second: while Brussels is in the midst of being in a sanctions war with Russia, a central European country has approved a Russian pipeline going their country! This is extraordinary!

It was such a resounding setback for the fantasy of “a Europe united against Russia”, that it’s given folks like ole’ Jean Claude Juncker(President of the European Commission) some serious conniptions!

Instantly, the phones were ringing off the hook, with EU politicians zealously demanding to know why Budapest officials had done this, and why Brussels hadn’t been contacted first about the decision.

Hmm, why would Budapest do this, brothers? Well, I’ll let Janos Lazar, the Minister for Orban’s office, explain it:

South Stream is “extraordinarily important” for Hungary because it enhances the security of gas supplies to the country”.

And there you have it, it’s so beautifully simple, isn’t it? Bankers and EU elites still haven’t figured out why the peoples of Europe continue to hate them with increasing ferocity, or why the Fidesz party has continued going from strength to strength.

It’s because Hungary isn’t a “backwater outpost” colony of the EU, but rather a proud, sovereign country with over 1,000 years of history! This is a concept that banking, technocrats hate: sovereign nations standing up for their own interests first.

The Hounds of Hell Begin to Bark

Though we all know that South Stream has been canceled, the law which Budapest passed still allows them to easily approve any other pipeline that would come through, including “Turk Stream”.

This has made those with real power both nervous and angry enough to step in and voice their opposition to Orban and the Fidesz party. In fact, back around Christmastime, DC unleashed one of their oldest, Rockefeller family poodles, the “Chimpmunk of War” himself…

Oh, no! Not him again!”

Oh yes, warriors! John McCain is on the case! Not content to simply ruin Syria or Ukraine, he’s gone and gotten himself involved in another personal quest to meddle(and to perhaps accomplish fresh regime changes) in other countries.

Why, just recently on his personal senate webpage, he gave a press release, where he spoke of his “concern about democracy and the rule of law” in Hungary!

These concerns are shared by many. A ruling by the Venice Commission in 2013 found that Prime Minister Orban’s constitutional changes threaten democracy and rule of law in Hungary, stating that the amendments ‘contradict principles of the Fundamental Law and European standards,’ and ‘leads to a risk that it may negatively affect all three pillars of the Council of Europe: the separation of powers as an essential tenet of democracy, the protection of human rights and the rule of law.’

And just last month, six Hungarians were banned from entering the United States over alleged corruption. U.S. Chargé d’Affaires André Goodfriend reportedly called the ban a warning to reverse policies that threaten democratic values, citing ‘negative disappointing trends’ in Hungary and a ‘weakening of rule of law, attacks on civil society, [and] a lack of transparency.’

Ain’t that funny? One of the most murderous, corrupt officials, hailing from one of the least transparent, most corrupt, and most abusive governments on planet earth is calling Hungary’s government corrupt and opaque!


There was much else that he said, but I didn’t wanna ruin your breakfast! You can visit his link to digest more garbage, if that’s your pleasure.

He also condemned Hungary’s cozy relationship with Russiaon the floor of the Senate, stating that,

[Hungary] … is on the verge of ceding its sovereignty to aneo-fascist dictator getting in bed with Vladimir Putin, and we’re going to send the producer of ‘The Bold and The Beautiful’ as the ambassador.”

Brothers, never forget that globalists love to call people names who pose a threat to them. They know they don’t have truth on their side, so they instantly resort to ugly name-calling, in the hopes of poisoning public opinion as often as possible. That’s a chief, go-to slur that globalists love: “neo-fascist”.

Of course, by “neo-fascist” what they usually mean is a nationalist, who cannot be bribed or cajoled, because they value their people, their traditions, or their religion above material gain.

A “neo-fascist”, in short, is anyone the bankers can’t control.

Viktor Orban immediately fired back at Senator McCain,stating that,

“Hungary’s national independence is under attack here…McCain’s statements were “extreme manifestations” which only “reflect on the person who said them.”

“The country’s independence in terms of energy, finances and trade relations is unappealing to those who profited from Hungary’s dependence prior to 2010,” and that he “would not be a viceroy in Hungary commissioned by some foreign state”.

And lastly, in case anyone misunderstood his intentions:

“The file on the South Stream gas pipeline is now closed,”but Hungary’s interest has remained “to have a gas pipeline that arrives in Hungary avoiding Ukraine”.

Spoken like a true man of his people. Can you see now why what’s going on in Hungary has the globalists worried?


My brothers, despite the best efforts of the banksters and technocrats in DC and Brussels, Eurasia is a reality that is slowly, inexorably creeping into Europe. We’ve already seen here at the Truth HQ how Greece, far from being a lonely and isolated country, is a fair maiden with many, many suitors who’re willing to court her, should the EU drop the ball in these debt negotiations. The desire to look further East, is no longer just confined to Greece or Orthodox, Balkan nations.

It’s become apparent to all the Western Elites watching, that Hungary, a nation mistreated by Europe’s elites ever since at least the partitioning of their country after WW I, is becoming a real, distinct problem to the transnational banking establishment.

Hungary has dared to defy the IMF, DC, Brussels, and the rest of the toxic controllers, in defense of its own freedom and prosperity. This is both inspirational, as well as a highly delicate(and perhaps even dangerous) situation.

The Magyar people have begun to find themselves again! The amazing and refreshing thing about rediscovering yourself, is that you usually want to do “pesky” things! Things like reasserting actual sovereignty, or fighting for your peoples’ best interests.

Whether it be transits like Turk Stream, new gas deals with Russia, treaties to enhance nuclear power with Russian aid, or seeking larger trade goals, the landslide victories of Orban’s “Fidesz” party seem to confirm that Hungary is ready to chart a new course, and find a better set of international “friends”.

I wish them the best of success in this endeavor, as they set a shining example of what is possible to the rest of us. However, I also admonish the Hungarian shield brothers among us(because there are a few), to jealously guard against any Western attempts to subvert your renewed national spirit.

A spirit which stubbornly(and gloriously) continues to choose identity over mammon.




Gerald Celente – Europe Moving Away From U.S. After Ukraine Fiasco

February 20, 2015

With the world still watching for news out of Ukraine, today the top trends forecaster in the world spoke with King World News about the ramifications of the West's defeat in eastern Ukraine. What he had to say will surprise a lot of readers.

Gerald Celente believes the outcome in Ukraine is much more than just the military loss suffered by the West:“What we are going to see is less and less cooperation from Europe regarding the United States’ antagonism of Russia. The (previous) Ukraine government, under Yanukovych, was overthrown with the help of the United States (after he accepted the more generous aid package of $15 billion that was offered by Putin)….

“But Der Spiegel showed that by going with the IMF deal, Ukraine would have lost about $160 billion worth of trade with Russia. I bring that up because it all ties into why you are going to see less and less cooperation from Europe to antagonize Russia via pressure from the United States. It goes back to the bottom line. Europe does a lot of business with Russia and vice versa. So when the United States imposed the sanctions and pushed for the imposition of sanctions on Russia, it hurt the European businesses.

Once again it shows you that incompetent sociopaths and psychopaths are in charge because you don’t take these kinds of aggressive anti-trade measures at a time when your economies are slowing down. Sensible people would do the opposite. They would try to increase trade and increase cooperation. But madman and madwomen look at things differently.

So we believe you are going to see less cooperation from Europe to antagonize Russia because it goes back to trade. When Russia responded with their trade sanctions against Europe, who did it hurt? It hurt the farmers in Italy. It hurt manufacturers in Germany. It hurt people throughout Europe.

So the handwriting is on the wall. The illegal and illegitimate government of Ukraine, that was put in place following the overthrow of a democratically elected government, the people that instigated the revolution have not only lost financially, they just lost militarily. The facts are there. It was a loss on every front.”




Report predicts where 2015 violence will occur most frequently

Published: February 21, 2015


The Obama administration has named a national security threat it believes is more dangerous than even the Islamic State terrorists beheading, crucifying and burning innocent human beings: Right-wing extremists.

According to CNN, “A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month and reviewed by CNN, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists.”

CNN doesn’t cite specific sources, but it says the new intelligence report references “24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010.”

“Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to – and in some cases greater than – the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.”

CNN reported, “The government says these are extremists who believe that they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances such as a traffic stop or being required to obey a court order.”

The report cites a 2012 incident in which a father and son reportedly shot and killed two police officers in Louisiana after being pulled over for a traffic violation. The two allegedly belonged to the sovereign citizen movement and claimed police had no authority over them.

The DHS intelligence assessment found, “(Sovereign citizen) violence during 2015 will occur most frequently during routine law enforcement encounters at a suspect’s home, during enforcement stops and at government offices.”

A CNN map shows DHS’ examples of sovereign citizen violence since 2010:

It adds, “[L]aw enforcement officers will remain the primary target of (sovereign citizen) violence over the next year due to their role in physically enforcing laws and regulations.”

The report comes after the White House concludes its three-day conference focusing on “violent extremism.”

The Obama administration has come under fire in recent days for its refusal to use the terms “Islamic extremism.” President Obama has described ISIS, the group that beheads Christians and burns them alive, as a “non-Islamic” group whose recruitment of radicals is fueled by poverty and hopelessness.

“We’re not at war against Islam,” he said during this week’s White House summit on “countering violent extremism,” adding, “We are at war with those who pervert Islam.”

Vice President Joe Biden, speaking at the summit, compared the troubling rise in Islamic terror attacks to right-wing extremists and militias who commit violence “in the name of the Bible.”

For its report, CNN interviewed the left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, a well-funded civil rights law firm which has been accused of being a hate group and publishes an “extremist watch list.” It was one of several groups identified by a domestic terrorist as having inspired his attempt to murder Christians at the Family Research Council in a foiled armed attack in 2012.

SPLC senior fellow Mark Potok estimated there are as many as 300,000 Americans involved in sovereign citizen extremism and 100,000 who make up the core of the movement.

According to the report, Potok said some groups in the movement “travel the country pitching their ideology as a way to help homeowners escape foreclosure or get out of debt, by simply ignoring the courts and bankruptcy law.”

WND reported in 2009 when DHS issued a report warning of the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists” concerned about illegal immigration, increasing federal power, restrictions on firearms, abortion and the loss of U.S. sovereignty and singles out returning war veterans as particular threats.

That report, titled, “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” dated April 7, 2009, stated that “threats from white supremacist and violent anti-government groups during 2009 have been largely rhetorical and have not indicated plans to carry out violent acts.”

However, the document, first reported by talk-radio host and WND columnist Roger Hedgecock, went on to suggest worsening economic woes, potential new legislative restrictions on firearms and “the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.”

The report from DHS’ Office of Intelligence and Analysis defined right-wing extremism in the U.S. as “divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups) and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

Most notable was the report’s focus on the impact of returning war veterans.

“Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” it says. “DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.”




US states breaking away from Washington: Ron Paul

Mon Feb 23, 2015 10:1PM

Former American presidential candidate Ron Paul says states will eventually break away from the United States but the good news is that secession is already underway.

The former Texas congressman made the remarks during a speech at a pro-secession conference, titled “Breaking Away: The Case for Secession”, late last month. The video of Paul’s speech surfaced on Friday.

“I would like to start off by talking about the subject and the subject is secession and, uh, nullification, the breaking up of government, and the good news is it’s going to happen. It’s happening,” Paul told a gathering at the libertarian Mises Institute on January 24.

He said that Congress would not approve secession, but the process rather would be de facto.

“And it’s not going to be because there will be enough people in the US Congress to legislate it. It won’t happen. It will be de facto. You know, you’ll have a gold standard when the paper standard fails, and we’re getting awfully close to that. And people will have to resort to taking care of themselves. So when conditions break down, you know, there’s going to be an alternative. And I think that’s what we’re witnessing,” Paul stated.

He also said that the US central bank, which he considers responsible for many of the ills afflicting America, would end and the states would simply stop listening to federal laws they didn’t agree with.

The veteran American politician said the Federal Reserve “is going to end. There is going to be a de facto secession movement going on. The states are going to refuse to listen to some of the laws.”

He added that “the American people are waking up to that, and as far as I’m concerned, the more the merrier.”

Amid the growing anger with Washington, polls show that nearly a quarter of Americans want their states to break away from the United States and become an independent country.

The results of a Reuters/Ipsos poll released in September last year show that 24 percent of Americans strongly support or tend to support the idea of their state separating from the union.

Experts say last year’s Scottish vote for independence along with the falling public approval of the White House is increasing interest in breaking away among the American public.

British forces head for Ukraine as David Cameron issues warning to Vladimir Putin

Prime Minister announces British infantry training mission to Ukraine as he warns of 'deeply damaging' consequences if EU fails to stand up to Vladimir Putin on Ukraine

By Peter Dominiczak, Political Editor, video source ITN

5:01PM GMT 24 Feb 2015

British troops will be deployed in Ukraine to train soldiers fighting Russian separatists, David Cameron has said, as he delivered an extraordinary warning to Vladimir Putin over his continued aggression in eastern Europe.

The Prime Minister said that there would be "deeply damaging" consequences for all of Europe if the EU fails to stand up to Mr Putin in Ukraine, predicting that the Russian president could turn against the Baltic states or Moldova if he is not reined in now.

He warned that Mr Putin has opted out of the “rules-based system” of the twenty-first century and warned that the Russian president must expect consequences.

Mr Cameron also said that British air defences can “absolutely” protect the country from the Russian planes, which have been making incursions along the UK coast in recent weeks.

Downing Street said that around 75 UK troops will travel to Ukraine to help with medical, intelligence, logistics and infantry skills.

Giving evidence to the Commons Liaison Committee, Mr Cameron said: "We are not at the stage of supplying lethal equipment.

"We have announced a whole series of non-lethal equipment, night-vision goggles, body armour, which we have already said that we will give to Ukraine.

"Over the course of the next month we are going to be deploying British service personnel to provide advice and a range of training, from tactical intelligence to logistics to medical care, which is something else they have asked for.

"We will also be developing an infantry training programme with Ukraine to improve the durability of their forces.

"This will involve a number of British service personnel, they will be away from the area of conflict but I think this is the sort of thing we should be helping with.

Former Ambassador Robert Ford Admits "Conspiracy Theorists" Were Right - Jihadists Are Majority Of Rebels

Brandon Turbeville

Friday, February 20, 2015

Death squad operative Robert Ford has turned a number of heads recently with his surprising indictments of the so-called “moderate” rebels operating in Syria. Ford, who has long been one of the most vocal cheerleaders of the jihadists – having played a crucial role in organizing and arming them early on – is now openly admitting much of what many in the alternative media have been saying since the beginning of the crisis in 2010 – that al-Qaeda, Nusra, and other jihadist forces make up the overwhelming majority of the alleged “rebellion.”

Of course, there never was anything remotely “moderate” about any of the “rebels” operating under Ford’s tutelage or NATO’s direction. Despite the propaganda necessities of NATO and the US, a “moderate rebel” has yet to have been produced for analysis.

Ford’s willing deceitful adherence to the State Department line of the existence of such ephemeral and mysterious beings known as “moderate rebels” notwithstanding, his admission of the fact that jihadists and al-Qaeda fighters make up the majority of fighters in Syria is something that alternative media journalists and researchers have been labeled as conspiracy theorists for suggesting for years. After having been badgered and mis-labeled by mainstream media propagandists for nearly five years, the establishment may now freely admit what the alternative media analysts have known and reported the entire time.



Scientists Discover That Eyes Are Windows To The Soul

February 20, 2015
Steven Bancarz, Spirit, Science & Metaphysics
Waking Times

The eyes are the windows to the universe, and some would say they are also windows to the soul. We have heard this phrase get passed around before: “The eyes are the windows of the soul”. People usually say this when they can see pain, anger, or some other emotion in somebody else’s eyes, but recent research gives a whole new meaning to this phrase. Eyes not only windows to emotions, they are windows to the soul.

How? The answer has to do with the actual eyeball itself. Everyone has a different structure of lines, dots and colours within the iris of their eye. Some people may have similar eye colour to each other, but the lines and dots on the iris are as unique as a fingerprint.

Although they vary from person to person, there are certain patterns contained within the iris which are widespread, and scientists at Orebro University in Sweden wanted to see if these patterns correlated with specific personality traits.

They focused on patterns in crypts (threads which radiate from the pupil) and contraction furrows (lines curving around the outer edge) which are formed when the pupils dilate. The studied the eyes of 428 subjects to see if the crypts patters and contraction furrows reflected their character traits.

What They Found

Their findings showed those with denselypacked crypts are more warmhearted, tender, trusting, and likely to sympathise with others. In comparison, those with more contraction furrows were more neurotic, impulsive and likely to give way to cravings.

It’s crazy to think how the markings on a person’s eyeball can reveal the most deep-rooted character traits of an individual.

There was an extremely strong correlation between a person’s iris and their personality traits. But correlation does not imply causation right? Right. But it appears as though both eye detail and a person’s character traits may be caused by the same thing.

The researchers said that eye structure and personality could be linked because the gene sequences responsible for developing the structure of the iris also contribute to the development of the frontal lobe of our brain, which is the motherboard of our personality.

“‘Our results suggest people with different iris features tend to develop along different personality lines,’ said Matt Larsson, a behavioural scientist who led the study at Orebro University. ‘These findings support the notion that people with different iris configurations tend to develop along different trajectories in regards to personality. Differences in the iris can be used as a biomarker that reflects differences between people.’”

The scientists also mentioned something very interesting about a gene called PAX6, which controls the formation of the eye in the early stages of embryonic development. Research has shown that mutation of the gene results in poor social skills, impulsiveness, and poor communication skills.

Eye Colour Reveals Even More

According to researchers at Pittsburgh University, women with lighter colored eyes experience less pain during childbirth compared to women with darker eyes. People with lighter eyes also consume significantly more alcohol, as darker eyed people require less alcohol to become intoxicated.

The reason boils down to genes. A senior lecturer in biomolecular sciences at Liverpool John Moores University said, “What we know now is that eye color is based on 12 to 13 individual variations in people’s genes… These genes do other things in the body.”

Take melanin,the pigment that makes eyes darker. Melanin may also makes people more susceptible to alcohol. When psychologists at Georgia State University in Atlanta surveyed more than 12,000 men and women, they found those with light eyes consumed significantly more alcohol than those with dark eyes. The reason brown-eyed people may drink less – and also be less likely to be alcoholics – is because they need less alcohol to become intoxicated.

Melanin not only determines eye darkness, it’s also an insulator for the electrical connections between brain cells. The more melanin in the brain, the more efficiently, sensitively and faster the brain can work, the researchers reported in the journal Personality and Individual Differences. So the chemical responsible for eye darkness is also responsible for brain efficiency.

Eyes are literally the windows to the inner most aspects of our personality and character traits. If you look into someones eyes, you can easily tell if they are scared, sad, or worn down inside. But if you look even closer, you will also be able to see what kind of psychology and personality that person has. Eyes are literally a window into people’s souls.
