we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of
this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden
[wisdom,] which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which
none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it,] they
would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
(1 Corinthians 2:6-8)
Wisdom Of God In A Mystry
Question: "What is the mystery of God referred to in the Bible?"
Answer: The Bible tells us that the mystery of God is Jesus Christ: “My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:2–3).
A “mystery” in the New Testament is something that had at one time been hidden but is now revealed to God’s people. Jesus spoke of “the mystery of the kingdom of God” (Mark 4:11, NAS) that He was at that point revealing to His disciples. The apostle Paul used the word mystery 21 times in his Epistles. In each case, the “mystery” involved a wonderful declaration of spiritual truth, revealed by God through divine inspiration. A mystery is that “which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets” (Ephesians 3:5).
The mystery of God’s will is that “which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ” (Ephesians 1:9–10; cf. 1 Corinthians 2:7; Revelation 2:7). The mystery of God is the consummation of God’s plan in bringing His kingdom in Christ to fulfillment. The kingdom had long been prophesied, but the how and the when and the by whom was not clear until the time of Christ. It is in Christ that God has been manifested to all of mankind. As Jesus said, “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9).
Paul said that he had been commissioned to preach “the word of God in its fullness—the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people” (Colossians 1:25–26). That is, it is through the apostles that we have been given the capstone of Scripture; their writings, all of which point to Christ—represent the final disclosure of God’s Word to mankind.
There is no understanding of God apart from a personal relationship with His Son (Matthew 12:50; John14:23; 2 John 1:6). Christ is the “mystery” revealed to those who believe—as is the mystery of “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). The key to having the “full riches of complete understanding” (Colossians 2:2) is to be born again by the power of the Holy Spirit. “The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:10).
Paul tells us that, “beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great.” Then he records what may be an early hymn of the church: “He [Jesus] appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory” (1 Timothy 3:16). In that short paragraph, the Bible reveals the heart of the gospel, the mystery of “true godliness.” The secret of being godly was hidden but is now revealed. It is to those who believe in Christ that the mystery is made known (1 Corinthians 2:7–14; Colossians 1:27). We come to learn that we of our own volition cannot please God; we must depend on Christ (2 Corinthians 3:5). As a man, Jesus lived a perfect life (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:21), and so He is a perfect example of how to live. As God, Jesus gives us the power to do what is right. It is possible to live a godly life—through the power of Christ (Philippians 4:13).
God has revealed His complete Word to His saints (Colossians 1:26) who have “heard and learned” the gospel (John 6:45; cf. Romans 10:17 and John 3:16–18), and it is they alone who fathom “the glorious riches of this mystery” (Colossians 1:27). In its fullest sense, the “mystery of God” is God’s plan of salvation through Jesus. We would never have been able to comprehend the way to eternal life without the coming of Jesus, His death and resurrection.

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here [is] Christ, or there; believe [it] not.

Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, [he is] in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe [it] not. Matthew 24:23-26
Pope warns media over 'sin' of spreading fake news, smearing politicians
By Philip Pullella | VATICAN CITY
Media that focus on scandals and spread fake news to smear politicians risk becoming like people who have a morbid fascination with excrement, Pope Francis said in an interview published on Wednesday.
Francis told the Belgian Catholic weekly "Tertio" that spreading disinformation was "probably the greatest damage that the media can do" and using communications for this rather than to educate the public amounted to a sin.
EU DEMANDS SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITES CENSOR “FAKE NEWS” WITHIN 24 HOURS
Lists it in the same context as jihadist propaganda
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com -
DECEMBER 6, 2016
The European Union is demanding that Twitter, YouTube and Facebook censor “illegal hate speech” within 24 hours, content that includes so-called “fake news,” a term so broad that it includes perfectly legitimate news content.
Complaining that censorship is currently taking too long, EU commissioners are threatening to pass new laws if the “non-legislative approach” fails.
“The last weeks and months have shown that social media companies need to live up to their important role and take up their share of responsibility when it comes to phenomena like online radicalisation, illegal hate speech or fake news,” EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourová told The Financial Times.
The fact that the EU is characterizing “fake news” in the same context as jihadist propaganda is chilling. Former UKIP leader Diane James previously told Breitbart that the EU’s definition of hate speech, “Is so vague that it is the thin end of the wedge not just to curb hate speech but free speech as well,” adding that the issue should be decided by parliaments, not by the unelected EU Commission.
As we have exhaustively documented, the “fake news” controversy is being exploited by the mainstream media to characterize completely legitimate alternative news sources, including even left-wing news outlets critical of Hillary Clinton, as fake news.
One website listed by the Washington Post as “fake news,” Naked Capitalism is now threatening to sue the newspaper for defamation. CBS News also listed Infowars.com as “fake news”.
The first “fake news” list that was circulated by mainstream media outlets turned out to be created by a radical leftist social justice warrior who had a clear political bias, while the second list was slammed by Glenn Greenwald as a “McCarthyite blacklist”. Greenwald accused the Washington Post of “obviously reckless and unproven allegations” in using the list.
In a related development, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft have vowed to “step up efforts to remove extremist content from their websites by creating a common database.”
The database, which will see the companies share the “unique digital fingerprints” of content deemed “extremist,” will enable such material to be removed far more quickly.
Given that the EU, which is set to meet with the internet companies later this week, now characterizes anti-EU sentiment as extremist content, it’s probably only a matter of time before legitimate dissent is targeted
UN passes resolution calling on Israel to withdraw from Syria’s Golan Heights

The United Nations General Assembly has once again passed a resolution calling on Israel to withdraw from Syria’s Golan Heights, territory that the Tel Aviv regime has occupied since 1967.
The assembly adopted the resolution, which had been proposed by 37 countries, by an overwhelming majority on November 30.
The resolution also condemned Israel’s non-compliance to the Security Council Resolution 497 since 1981 until now, describing as null and void Tel Aviv’s decision issued on December 14, 1981 to impose its control over the occupied Golan Heights.
The UNGA also reemphasized the basic principle of inadmissibility of the acquisition of territories by force based on the international law and the UN Charter.
The resolution stressed that the Geneva Conventions on the protection of civilian individuals in time of war apply in the occupied Golan Heights.
Many of the states participating in the session also denounced the Israeli practices in the occupied region.
Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria after the 1967 Six-Day War and later occupied it in a move that has never been recognized by the international community. The regime has built tens of illegal settlements in the area ever since and has used the region to carry out a number of military operations against the Syrian government.
Syria says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups operating inside the Arab country. The Israeli regime has even set up field hospitals there to treat wounded Syrian militants.
The Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants inside Syria.

Something Very Strange Is Going On In Antarctica - Military.com Reports 'Operation Deep Freeze' Has Been Ongoing For 60 Years!
By Stefan Stanford
December 7, 2016
The new story from Life Science reports a gigantic, 70-mile long crevice has recently opened up in the ice in Antarctica. At least as wide as a football field at about 300' and plunging down more than a third of a mile to the ocean below, we're told once the crack spreads across the entire ice shelf, it'll create an iceberg about the size of Delaware at over 2,400 square miles. You can see this crevice in the first photo below and in the first video at the bottom of this story.
And while NASA Ice tells us this relatively new rift just showed up on satellite imagery this year, it's clear that something very strange is going on in the Antarctic with globalists such as John Kerry recently visiting the 'bottom of the Earth' at a time when one mysterious event after another has been unfolding down there as outlined in the stories and videos here within.
As we read in this recent story from Mysterious Universe, Kerry's visit came soon after Wikileaks released a large set of photographs of Antarctica via leaked emails. "Does this mean that there’s a worldwide cover-up...?" their story asks.
You can see the Wikileaks Podesta Antarctica pictures here (hit attachments).
And now Military.com has published a new story in which they tell us about "Operation Deep Freeze" and the US Air Force's 'vital mission in Antarctica'. What is really going on down there? We're told in their story this Operation has been going on for 60 years!
During the late 1930's, Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany made at least 3 documented trips to Antarctica. While establishing New Swabia, they made no formal territorial claims to that Antactic land. With Nazi Germany showing a very strong interest in the 'bottom of the world' more than 75 years ago, those trips also have launched great speculation.
According to Steve Quayle's book "Empire Beneath The Ice: How The Nazis Won World War II", the truth about history has long been hidden. Revealing to us why most of what we have learned about World War II and the defeat of Nazi Germany is wrong, even the Daily Mail recently published a story asking if an 'alien base' is hidden within a pyramid there after a huge, triangular structure was recently spotted on Google Earth.
As Quayle told us in an SQnote while linking to that story, SUGGEST YOU ALL ACQUIRE MY BOOK 'EMPIRE BENEATH THE ICE' TO GET A FEEL FOR THE EVENTS SOON TO BE RELEASED FROM THE ANTARCTICA. You can hear Quayle along with Derek Gilbert discussing “Empire Beneath the Ice” and the esoteric connection between the Nazis and the occult quest that drove Hitler and German elites to find an underworld location of the gods in the final video below.
Famed astronaut Buzz Aldrin also recently visited the South Pole though he had to evacuated due to a medical emergency according to this story from Time. Why is there suddenly so much interest in this world of ice? And might there be evidence of an advanced, ancient civilization at the 'bottom of the world' as argued in this recent story from Ancient Code?
The recent story from Tales From Out There that Quayle had linked to on his website called "Strange Goings On In Antarctica - Did They Find Some Sort Of Lost Ancient High Technology Out There?" reported that Lockheed Martin, a key corporate defense contractor and player in the military-industrial complex, also has a contract for 'scientific research' at the Antarctic.
We also recently learned via the Daily Mail that mysterious blue clouds have been seen at the earliest date ever in the Antarctic this year as also seen and heard in the 2nd video below.
Why has there been so much interest in the Antarctic recently and might we soon learn and do these 'ancient pyramids of Antarctica' hold secrets that are still being hidden from us? In the 3rd video below, our videographer takes a look at the recent trips made to the Antarctic while asking what is being covered up down there while giving us the historical background of Nazi Germany's exploration of the Antarctic and the US response to that via Operation Highjump in 1946/1947.
France Debates Bill to Criminalize Online Pro-Life Advocacy
By Patrick Goodenough | December 1, 2016 | 4:27 AM EST

(Update: The French National Assembly on Thursday adopted the controversial bill, with the support of leftists and a majority of centrists, while right wing lawmakers opposed it. The measure now goes to the Senate. Family Minister Laurence Rossignol argued during the debate that “freedom of expression should not be confused with manipulating minds.”)
(CNSNews.com) – French lawmakers on Thursday will debate and vote on a Socialist government-backed draft law that could criminalize online pro-life advocacy. The legislation would extend the ambit of already-illegal “interference” in abortion to cover digital media.
Any website carrying material that is deemed to be “deliberately misleading, intimidating and/or exerting psychological or moral pressure” aimed at persuading a mother not to abort her child could face criminal charges, with punishments of two years in prison and a fine of 30,000 euros ($31,800).
A Catholic archbishop has called the move “a very serious attack on the principles of democracy.”
Supporters, including Families Minister Laurence Rossignol, say the goal is to prevent the dissemination of inaccurate or biased information, but critics view the wording as vague and dangerous.
“One could hardly be vaguer in the description,” argues Gregor Puppinck, director of the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) – an international affiliate of the Virginia Beach-based American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) – which opposes the initiative.
“It is difficult to understand how the mere consulting of a website information page could obstruct the practice of an abortion or the information about it,” he said in an article Wednesday. “This vague crime is opened to the most extensive interpretations.”
Puppinck says that that clearly violates a French Constitutional Council ruling that legislation must define crimes “in terms precise and clear enough to exclude arbitrary decisions.”
France legalized abortion on demand until the end of the 12th week of pregnancy – or what is known officially as “voluntary interruption of pregnancy” (L’interruption volontaire de grossesse or IVG) – in 1975.
In 1993 another law was passed, creating the offense of hindering or interfering in an abortion – aimed at preventing pro-life activists from physically blocking access to, or occupying or otherwise targeting abortion facilities.
The law was later broadened to cover “moral and psychological pressure” aimed at dissuading abortion, and the legislation now under consideration seeks to widen that further into the digital realm.
In the new law’s crosshairs are websites like IVG.net, which offers counselling, practical support, and resources that include information about medical and psychological risks entailed in having an abortion.
The French Ministry of Social Affairs and Health’s official abortion website warns women about sites of that nature.
“Some websites that you find via search engines will tell you that they offer neutral and medical information but are actually edited by anti-abortion activists,” it says.
“They are sometimes hard to recognize but beware systematically sites and hotlines devoting a large part of their content to motherhood and supposed complications and injuries from abortion.”
The government site instead recommends a handful of – hardly neutral – websites, including that of the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s French affiliate, Planning Familial, one run by a national association of abortion clinics, and a feminist blog that includes a searchable database of abortion clinics across France.
A posting published on the IVG.net website rejected the notion that it would deliberately mislead by offering disinformation.
“Our information and prevention efforts for women cannot be disparaged so rudely,” it said, protesting against what it called a “scandalous attempt to muzzle us and stigmatize us by undermining our moral integrity.”
Going further, IVG.net identified what it called “eight lies” on the government website, such as the assertion that there are no post-abortion psychological consequences.
‘Real existential distress’
In a recent letter to President Francois Hollande, made public on Monday, the president of the French conference of Catholic bishops urging him against allowing the measure to be put in place.
Abortion, wrote Archbishop Georges Pontier, “whether one likes it or not, remains a serious act that profoundly interrogates the conscience.”
“In difficult situations, many women are reluctant to keep the child they bear. They feel the need to talk about it, to seek advice. Some, sometimes very young, experience a real existential distress in the face of this dramatic choice, which will mark their whole life.”
Pontier said many women visit websites that offer a listening ear to those who are “hesitant or distressed about the possible choice of abortion.”
While some may go ahead with the abortion, others eventually decide to keep their child. That “diversity of expression and behavior,” he said, was made possible by the “space of liberty” offered by the websites concerned.
Pontier said the bill to be debated on Thursday “calls into question the foundations of our freedoms and especially the freedom of expression.”
“Should we necessarily exclude any alternative to abortion to be considered an honest citizen?” he asked Hollande. “Can the slightest encouragement to keep one’s child qualify as ‘psychological and moral pressure’?”
The archbishop argued that limiting free expression in a way that moreover impacts freedom of conscience “seems to me to be a very serious attack on the principles of democracy.”
In other recent abortion-related developments in France, judicial authorities recently ruled that a video featuring children with Down syndrome could not be broadcast on public television on the grounds that the children’s smiles (emphesis added) may “disturb” women who have had abortions.
Earlier this year, a mandatory one-week waiting period before abortion was abolished.
France has long had liberal abortion policies, In 1988 it became the first country to introduce the abortion pill RU-486 (mifepristone), and in 2012 – in line with a Hollande campaign pledge – parliament voted to reimburse the full cost of abortions, a measure that came into force the following year.

Is The Biggest Cover-Up Of All-Time About To Come Crashing Down? They Knew Of This 'Perturber' 33 Years Ago! Why'd They 'Go Dark'?
'Planet Nine's Days Of Lurking In The Depths Of Outer Solar System May Be Numbered' Experts Warn
By Stefan Stanford
December 2, 2016
All the way back on January 30th of 1983, the New York Times ran a story in their 'Ideas and Trends' section called "Clues Get Warm In The Search For Planet X" within which they reported "SOMETHING out there beyond the farthest reaches of the known solar system seems to be tugging at Uranus and Neptune. Some gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object that may be the long-sought Planet X."
Telling us further that an $80 million dollar joint project was about to be begin along with the Netherlands and Great Britain launching an infrared satellite into space to conduct a wide-ranging survey of nearly all the sky in an attempt to detect that which is largely invisible to the human eye, we were also told that only a 'single undiscovered planet' could have possibly caused the orbital perturbation exhibited by Uranus and Neptune according to Dr. Thomas C. Van Flandern, an astronomer at the United States Naval Observatory.
Nearly a year later on December 30th of 1983, the Washington Post published a story called "Possibly As Large As Jupiter" in which they reported a heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion. And while the mainstream media went dark on reporting upon 'Planet X' for the 33 years since, if astronomers are correct, they may soon have no choice but to report upon it or totally lose their relevancy.
According to the Post story then, IRAS scientists calculated this mystery body 'might be moving towards Earth' though soon after, Dr. Gerry Neugebauer, IRAS chief scientist for California's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and director of the Palomar Observatory for the California Institute of Technology said. "It's not incoming mail. I want to douse that idea with as much cold water as I can." Interestingly, he also stated: "All I can tell you is that we don't know what it is." From the Post story in 1983.:
While they cannot disprove that notion, Neugebauer and Houck are so bedeviled by it that they do not want to accept it. Neugebauer and Houck "hope" the mystery body is a distant galaxy either so young that its stars have not begun to shine or so surrounded by dust that its starlight cannot penetrate the shroud.
While astronomers then didn't 'want to accept it', it's clear to us that what they promised then 'is not incoming mail' while being 'bedeviled by it' and at the same time admitting to knowing nothing about it is the same 'Planet Nine' now being reported upon within 'space circles' as detailed below.
Nearly 33 years later, according to Space.com, 'Planet Nine' can't hide much longer. Thought to be 10 times the mass of the Earth, they report it will probably be 'officially discovered' in the next 16 months according to astronomer Mike Brown. "I'm pretty sure, I think, that by the end of next winter — not this winter, next winter — I think that there'll be enough people looking for it that…somebody's actually going to track this down."
Hitting the nail right on the head, 'Planet Nine' has been nicknamed 'The Perturber' by Brown and Konstantin Batygin, the astronomers who discovered that SOMETHING is indeed out there...just as the Washington Post reported all the way back in 1983. So, why'd they 'go dark' on 'Planet X' when they had admitted it was there? In fact, all across the internet years later, a concerted effort was made to label anybody even talking about 'planet X' a 'tin-foil hat conspiracy theorist'. Just like they have labeled those who talked about globalism, chemtrails, or very real, shady government conspiracies.
Believed by the same astronomers who 'discovered it' to have the kind of mass necessary to produce gravitational effects that explain the improbable orbital configuration of a group of trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) that orbit mostly beyond the Kuiper belt as well as having the ability to 'perturb' the orbits of Neptune and Uranus, Space.com asked on October 19th if 'Planet Nine' tilted the solar system while that same day, Astronomy.com reported 'Planet Nine' may be responsible for the tilt of the sun.
If you're wondering what kind of gravitational effects that 'Planet Nine' could have upon the Earth, you're not only one.
If 'Planet Nine' is indeed 'real,' the other nickname that the astronomers who 'discovered it' gave the mysterious planet is quite appropriate, calling it 'Jehoshaphat', or 'judgement'. And as we hear in the first video below, an excellent breakdown of many of the facts we've mentioned here and plenty more, 'Planet Nine' could very well be the reason why so many of the rich are now preparing for 'the end', building underground bunkers like they're going out of style.
Possibly hoping they might be able to withstand the kind of devastation that could be brought upon the Earth by a 'planet' with an enough gravitational power to alter our solar system, we also learned that research published by Daniel Whitmire, a retired professor of astrophysics and faculty member of the University of Arkansas Department of Mathematical Sciences shows 'Planet Nine' could be responsible for a series of extinction events upon the planet Earth as it disturbs comets in the Kuiper belt and casts them towards our planet Earth.
Is the biggest cover-up in history about to come crashing down as 'Planet Nine' is determined to be the same planet warned of through Biblical prophecy and deeply hidden in our ancient past? Astronomers now believe something is lurking out there that has the gravitational pull to tilt our solar system and may soon be confirmed as the biggest space news we've gotten in a very, very, very long time.
The Economist is an English-language weekly news magazine owned by the Economist Group and edited in offices in London. Continuous publication began under its founder, James Wilson, in September 1843. For historical reasons, The Economist refers to itself as a newspaper, but each print edition appears on small glossy paper in the form of a news magazine. In 2006 its average weekly circulation was reported to be 1.5 million, about half of which were sold in the United States.
The publication belongs to the Economist Group. It is 50% owned by the English branch of the Rothschild family and by the Agnelli family through its holding company Exor. The remaining 50% is held by private investors including the editors and staff. The Rothschilds and the Agnellis are represented on the board of directors. A board of trustees formally appoints the editor, who cannot be removed without its permission. Although The Economist has a global emphasis and scope, about two-thirds of the 75 staff journalists are based in the City of Westminster, London. For the year to March 2016 the Economist Group declared operating profit of £61m. Previous major shareholders include Pearson PLC.
The Economist takes an editorial stance of classical and economic liberalism which is supportive of free trade, globalisation, free immigration and cultural liberalism (such as supporting legal recognition for same-sex marriage or drug liberalization). The publication has described itself as "a product of the Caledonian liberalism of Adam Smith and David Hume." It targets highly educated readers and claims an audience containing many influential executives and policy-makers. The publication's CEO described this recent global change, which was first noticed in the 1990s and accelerated in the beginning of the 21st century, as a "new age of Mass Intelligence." Wikipedia
5 mind-boggling Moon mysteries that science cannot explain
With a diameter of about 3,476 kilometers the Moon is a quarter the size of Earth, all other moons in our solar system orbit their planets around the equator, our moon does not, and there are lunar rocks that have been found to contain PROCESSED METALS such as Brass, Mica and Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237.
Simply put, Earth’s moon is one of the most mysterious objects in our solar system. It is considered a ‘weird’ celestial body due to its numerous physical qualities which scientists are unable to explain, and due to the fact that it is the most unique object in the solar system, incomparable to any other moon found to date.

In fact, the moon is so unique that Dr. Robert Jastrow, the first president of NASA’s Commission of Lunar Exploration called the moon “the Rosetta Stone of the planets.”
To get an idea just how weird the moon is, we only have to take a look at a quote by Robin Brett, a scientist from NASA who stated, “It seems easier to explain the non-existence of the Moon than its existence.”
But what makes the moon so weird?
It’s big. In fact, it is huge. With a diameter of about 3,476 kilometers the Moon is a quarter the size of Earth. Except for Pluto and Charon, this is the largest known proportion between a moon and its parent body among the numerous objects of our system.
It has a weird orbit that’s so unique scientists have not been able to find it anywhere else in the solar system. It turns that all other moons in our solar system orbit their planets around the equator. Our moon does not, and orbits Earth at an inclination of five degrees. The moon has a precise altitude, course, and speed, allowing it to “function” properly in regards of planet Earth. Simply put the Moon should not be where it is currently.
The Moon is almost an Earth. The composition of our natural satellite is similar to that of Earth, unlike most other moons. Who are clearly different from their parent planets.
If the above details did not catch your attention, there’s more.

There are some lunar rocks that have been found to contain PROCESSED METALS such as Brass, Mica and Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237. These elements have NEVER been found to occur naturally. Uranium 236 is a radioactive nuclear waste which is found in spent nuclear and reprocessed Uranium. More interestingly, Neptunium 237 is a radioactive metallic element and a by-product of nuclear reactors and the production of Plutonium.
These mysterious lunar characteristics have led Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcerbakov from the Soviet Academy of Science to write an article in the 1970’s about the moon called “Is the Moon the Creation of Alien Intelligence?”
Furthermore, Dr. Harold Urey, Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry said he was “terribly puzzled by the rocks astronauts found on the moon and their Titanium content. The samples were unimaginable and mind-blowing since researchers could not account for the presence of Titanium.
In other words, our Moon does not share any characteristics with other moons found in our Solar System. If that isn’t strange enough, consider that from any point on the surface of our planet only one side of the Moon is visible.
Rare fog dome forms above north Wales
By Strange Sounds -
Dec 3, 2016
A rare ‘fog dome’ formed above north Wales on December 2, 2016.
Cold weather alerts have been issued for much of the UK as temperatures plummet to -4 °C on the coldest weekend of the season.
Rare ‘fog dome’ photographed near Tremeirchion, Wales
A rare UFO-like ‘fog dome’ was spotted by a woman walking her dog in North Wales on at 8 am on November 2, 2016.
She explains: ‘I couldn’t believe how perfectly dome shaped it was, it looked amazing, so I had to take a photo. I’d never seen anything like it before, it was really quite special. I watched it for about 10 minutes and then the dome started to flatten and it looked like very thick low lying cloud. It spread out across 12 fields and covered a huge area.‘
Weather specialists think the fog dome was caused by heat rising up from the ground.

Mysterious “Thunderstorm Asthma” Now Strikes Kuwait – Hospitalizing Nearly A Thousand
Posted By: RumorMail
Date: Monday, 5-Dec-2016 14:35:49
The mystery deepens.
A week or so ago, conspiracy theorists were scratching their heads as to why more than 8500 people in Australia would suddenly have to a hospitalized in a concentrated wave allergies that left several people dead.
Now, a similar event has been reported in Kuwait, where reports claim that thunderstorm activity has triggered a mass reaction and nearly a thousand people were taken to the hospital with severe asthma; again, several people died.
So what is really going on? Is a covert, deadly substance being deliberately sprayed from planes (as governments did back in the sixties, and countless times since)? Or is is just something harmful being swept up from nearby farms and factories?
Whatever the explanation, the pattern is completely bizarre, especially since it has now happened in back to back cases, despite the fact that the phenomenon has been sparsely documented and extremely rare, to the point of being unheard of.
The following was translated from Arabic to English via Google, so there may be errors or poor interpretations.
But at this point, there isn’t much else to go on.
Via Hamrin News (a Kurdish-oriented news outlet published from Germany):
Kuwait – 1-12 (KUNA) – Undersecretary of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Health, Dr. Khalid Al-Sahlawi said that the country’s hospitals and five deaths were recorded during the past two days due to emergency cases of patients with asthma were suffering from suffocation and breathing difficulties.
He Sahlawi in a press statement Friday that the 844 emergency entered into the country’s hospitals during the past two days died, including five cases, three of which in Mubarak Hospital and two at the Amiri Hospital while entered the 26 cases in intensive care and 45 cases to the wings with out the rest of the cases after receiving the necessary treatment.
He explained that the sections of accidents in hospitals declared a state of emergency and prepare to receive critical situations and make the necessary first aid and called for emergency contact numbers in case of any emergency through the 112 ambulance and 151 medical consultations.
While officials are quick to reassure everyone that it is perfectly normal for so many people to be suddenly affected, this really isn’t a routine occurrence, and somebody must have better explaining to do.
Just like the Zika virus, so-called “Thunderstorm Asthma” wasn’t even a thing that anyone talked about until recently when it supposedly hit Australia a couple weeks ago on November 21st, sending some 8,500 people to the emergency room in a matter of hours and killing eight people so far.
Emergency officials described the scene like “150 bombs going off,” and at the height of the emergency, someone was dialing 9-1-1 for an ambulance every 4.5 seconds as people en masse began having asthma and heart attacks. Emergency services were so overwhelmed in Melbourne, they ran out of ambulances and even other emergency vehicles like fire trucks and police cars, and they were forced to use non-emergency vehicles. One girl reportedly died in her families arms on their front lawn waiting for an ambulance.
Officials claim it works like this: pollen fills the air and then, after a sudden weather change, a huge thunderstorm blows through, causing the pollen to swell and burst into nanoparticles. When the rain stops, the mass of “thunderstorm asthma” ensues.
An official Wikipedia page for “thunderstorm asthma” explains that it has happened in a handful of cities over the last two decades, but, as Melissa Dykes of Truthstream Media points out below, A) there have been no recorded incidences of this prior to the late 80s and B) that Wikipedia page did not exist until November 22, a day after the “rare” thunderstorm asthma hit Melbourne November 21.
Hmm… weird stuff.
Does Rare “Thunderstorm Asthma” Just Sound Made Up or What?
BREAKING: Aleppo’s Old City Now Fully Liberated by Syrian Army, Remaining Terrorists in Retreat
DECEMBER 6, 2016
DAMASCUS – In a stunning development today, 21WIRE has received reports from on the ground in Syria that remaining ‘rebel’ militants have fled the Old City of Aleppo, even leaving behind a substantial amount of equipment and weapons – as the Syrian Arab Army advances into the remaining terrorist-held neighborhood in the eastern part of Syria’s largest city.
SAA sources have confirmed that the ‘Old Citadel’ is now fully liberated, “with remaining pockets to be cleansed by tomorrow (Wednesday).”
21WIRE special contributor, Vanessa Beeley, is currently in Damascus, waiting to head to Aleppo. She had this to say on the situation and the news coming in from Syrian TV channels and statements from the Syrian Arab Army:
“Since I arrived in Damascus on Monday 5th December, there has been a simmering excitement from all members of society, a sense of impending victory in Aleppo. That anticipation seems to have been satiated tonight as news is coming in that the Syrian Arab Army is pushing home its advantage and sweeping clean, the remaining pockets of terrorist resistance against the SAA advances, supported by their allies from Iran, Russia and Hezbollah.
I met with Mother Agnes Mariam de la Croix today, in Damascus city centre to discuss her work supporting the Syrian State’s reconciliation projects which offer all manner of Amnesty and rehabilitation for armed mercenaries. During the meeting Mother Agnes made this statement:
“Between Syrians there are only solutions…no conflict. The conflict comes from outside Syria”
Never has this been more clearly demonstrated than in the SAA liberation of East Aleppo from the NATO + Gulf state funded, multiple gangs of armed insurgents, mercenaries and terrorist groups under the command of Nusra Front aka Al Qaeda. This victory is not only a military victory. It is a victory against all forms of NATO and Gulf state terrorism – the crippling economic sanctions, the hostile media campaigns, the weaponized humanitarianism of Western “state” funded NGOs have all received a fatal blow with this liberation of Aleppo.”
After nearly 3 weeks of heavy fighting in a special offensive launched by the Syrian Army, government forces were said to have controlled at least 75% of the contested areas by the end of Monday. The momentum appears to have shifted completely in the SAA’s favor after another hard push throughout Tuesday.
This weekend, ‘rebel’ militants had mounted a counter-offensive at the districts of Karm Al-Qaterjy and Karm Al-Maysar, but their forces were neutralized, as the Syrian Army continued its progress by capturing both the Turbet Lala and Sha’ar districts of East Aleppo.
It is also believed that a collective decision to retreat has been made by remaining members of the armed militant and terrorist coalition occupying eastern Aleppo. Many militants are hoping to negotiate a safe exit via Turkey, but this would be contingent on a three-way negotiation held in Turkey between Russia, Syria and Turkey officials hoping to negotiate an orderly exit, and on what conditions exactly the Syrian Army will allow militants to leave north. It is also possible with some remaining Al Nusra, ISIS and other salafi militants had already begun making their own way over to terrorist enclaves in the east of the country, and also towards terrorist-occupied Idlib province.
It is not yet known whether violent terrorists groups like Al Nusra, Nour al-din al-Zenki, or Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham are included in the bilateral negotiations.
This report has just been updated by the Syrian Arab News Agency:
“Provinces, SANA- The army is advancing further in Aleppo, as its units, in cooperation with the supporting forces, have established control over several new areas after inflicting heavy losses upon the terrorist organizations there.
Aleppo: Units of the Army and Armed Forces, in cooperation with the supporting forces, restored security and stability to the neighborhoods of Karm al-Dada, Karm al-Qatirji and al-Shaar in the city of Aleppo, SANA reporter announced.
In a relevant context, the reporter said members of the Internal Security Forces detonated a car bomb for the terrorist organizations before it managed to reach a military post in the surroundings of Jamiyet al-Zahra.
He noted that the car bomb attack was planned in an attempt to raise the deteriorating morale of the terrorists who had to flee under the army’s strikes in the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo city.
Later, a military source said that army units restored security and stability to al-Marjeh and al-Sheikh Lutfi neighborhoods in Aleppo, and are pursuing the remaining terrorists in the area.
The source also said that the army units established control over Tallet al-Shurta (hill) after conducting intensive operations against the terrorist organizations to the east of Aleppo city and eliminating their gatherings.”

(Valery Giscard D’Estang. on the Lisbon treaty)
Failed EU - Means an Expanded Dictatorship
As the people of the world awaken to the pernicious nature and destructive wreckage of European civilization, the EU technocrats and oligarchs respond with even greater measures of control, repression and intimidation. Yet the prospects that they will be able to maintain their autocratic rule lessons with each populist rebellion against the beasts from Brussels. Induced panic is a tool used to scare the peasants into additional submission. The most obvious method will be a major economic and monetary implosion designed to create fear so that their revered and lauded interdependency necessitates another surrender of national sovereignty.
Events in the last decade foreshadowed the frustration and indignation of Europeans against the artificial federation of independent nations, under the domination of non elected autocrats. Only a denier of facts and history would dispute that the European Union has been a failed experiment in communal coupling. A common currency is as much a pipedream as achieving equivalent and comparable national economies.
Soon the EU will be at parity with the US Dollar, but do not worry; the Merkel Reich will bail out the banks with all those assets generated from the Marshall Plan. Keep the money all in the family. So With Populist Anger Rising, Italy May Be Next Domino to Fall, the European Banksters have another opportunity to scare the public and put them back in line.
“The problem with Italian banks is they are fragile and they are really big,” said Ángel Talavera, senior eurozone economist at Oxford Economics in London. “Banks of that caliber, as soon as you have any noise and rumors, it creates a really bad loop.”
This loop is continuous. When Lagarde Says Globalization Needs to Have a More Inclusive ‘Face’, she really is saying that the obstinate Brits need to get back in line.
“Lagarde said she’s increasingly concerned the U.K. is headed for a “hard” exit from the European Union. “All the noises, all the comments, all the little posturing here and there seem to indicate that we are still looking at a hard Brexit,” she said.”
The only real hard exit will come when the entire musical chair drama hits the wall and the rush to abandon the union of oppression and get back to cultural distinctiveness of indigenous ethnic identity. The systematic contamination of European heritage from the forced invasion of foreign and non compatible Middle East and African hordes has proved to be the greatest betrayal of the new millennium.
The downfall of the Roman Empire was finalized when the barbarians no longer feared the legions of gladius armed soldiers. Today, the Goths are actually the Philistines from the European Union. The “so called” refugees that Merkel welcomed are intended to destroy the last semblance of democratic legitimacy.
The only objective reason to explain such a suicidal policy is that the Caucasian race has proven to be too much of an obstacle for the globalists, who want and need conflict to eliminate native factions from the European continent.
Miscegenation and a diaspora of mass exodus into the countries of Europe has become the hallmark for the failure of reason, common sense and self survival. Is it no wonder that the German racial tenants of the 1930’s, which is attracting more support across Europe are seen as preferable to the multiculturalism of the post WWII EU lunacy?
Conventional wisdom shows little worry on What Happens If Italy Votes ‘No’ on Sunday. Andrea Montanino’s viewpoint writes:
“Those who consider that this vote could be a disruptive event for the European Union — potentially even worse than Brexit — forget this is a normal feature embedded in Italy’s constitutional system: The referendum was compulsory and not a political decision of the prime minister. No matter the outcome, it is very unlikely that Italy will face a financial and institutional crisis.
But a negative vote likely would make it harder for Italy’s fragile banks to recapitalize in the short term, exacerbate tensions among European leaders in the medium term — and could alter the vision of Europe in the long term.”
This assessment is echoed by the guardians of the European financial octopus. Italian Banks Flirt With Disaster Again as Renzi Teeters wants you to believe that the next shoe to fall will not disrupt the European Central Bank counter-claims.
“The nation’s political leaders, the Bank of Italy and the European Central Bank could take steps, if necessary, to keep the financial system from collapsing, including making state aid available, said Nicolas Veron, a senior fellow at Bruegel, a Brussels-based think tank. “It’s hard to see a scenario that leads to Armageddon in the Italian banking sector even if Renzi does step down,” he said.”
Since the EU is not a reserve currency like the US Dollar, the unlimited flow of fresh credit is more difficult to fund. Certainly the adverse consequences to every EU member cannot be ignored. However, the price of pain for member nations is desirable for the magisterial governance to prove just how indispensable they are. The reality is that their arrogant game of brinkmanship is wearing thin among the populace.
Yet do not count that the road to EU ruin will not have setbacks as just seen with the far-right candidate LOSES Austrian presidential election.
On the other hand the Dutch far-right party led by Geert Wilders would WIN an election held today, respected poll shows, in latest blow to EU, is forecast that “The Party for Freedom would seize 33 seats in the Dutch parliament's 150-seat lower chamber, based on data revealed by pollster Maurice de Hond.”
Also, the establishment view in the anticipated election asks. Who is Francois Fillon and can he really beat Marine Le Pen?
“She has tried to present herself as the Brexit-Trump candidate in France, but if there is one thing that does not work in French politics, it is to make an offer based on what the Americans and English do. Marine Le Pen’s endorsement by Nigel Farage is a viper’s embrace and France and Fillon will hug Germany ever closer and back more, not less, into Europe.”
No doubt the Brussels band of bandits would prefer Fillon, but will the people vote for a warmed over lite version of populism or will they rally to the real deal in Le Pen?
The European Union will not succumb to the will of the people without a last ditch effort to push back. Democracy has never been the dominate element in European politics. Blue Blood aristocrats never go away; they just emerge under a new title of nobility with a fresh scheme to keep the feudal system intact.
The Totalitarian Collectivism structure that permeates the globalist world order is so embedded into the social and political institutions, that mere public outrage will not be sufficient to break the chains of enslavement.
Those wars to end all wars only consolidated the ruling hierarchy to organize under a different banner of fake democratic principles. The Fascist Victory Behind the European Union explains the origins of the EU Superstate. Most Europeans never understood that the forces that plotted, to once again torch the continent into an infernal of carnage, were the same elites who wanted the First World War.
Today, not much has changed. The Bilderberg Authoritarianism Destroys Humanity as their normal course of operations. The European Union wants to rule over their inborn population completely. The swarms of foreigners are packs of gate-crasher intended to be the accelerant to burn down the civilization.
A peaceful dismantling of the EU is too much to hope for. Prospects of another avoidable conflagration can only take place if the power structure of the globalist cabal, not accountable to any country, much less their citizens; is purged and eradicated from any positions of authority.
Can this imposition of justice take place when the community of nations is nothing but a rubber stamp for the very systemic criminals, who preside over the institutions they designed to maintain their preeminence and exploit their own people? Doubtful, since most people are unwilling to face up to the reality that they have become meager chattel in what the English call The Great Game.
Nativist citizens from EU countries need to start to think in terms of a common race and religion, not a centralization of governing. For a society, who has significantly abandoned the canons of Christianity and often accepts atheistic secular humanism, this shift is hard to imagine. Yet the naysayers were recently preaching as gospel that Donald Trump’s populism would be resoundingly rejected.
Mass movements frequently take on a life of their own. If the self-governing will of Europeans can resonate against the bondage of EU serfdom, the liberation from the Byzantine regulations of Brussels governance can create a path for a new renaissance of time-honored enlightenment. Traditional values and virtuous morality, coupled with civic responsibility and bureaucratic accountability is the only road to achieve deliverance from the despotism under the European Union.
SARTRE – December 6, 2016
The Coming War on China
by JOHN PILGER
DECEMBER 2, 2016
When I first went to Hiroshima in 1967, the shadow on the steps was still there. It was an almost perfect impression of a human being at ease: legs splayed, back bent, one hand by her side as she sat waiting for a bank to open. At a quarter past eight on the morning of 6 August, 1945, she and her silhouette were burned into the granite. I stared at the shadow for an hour or more, unforgettably. When I returned many years later, it was gone: taken away, “disappeared”, a political embarrassment.
I have spent two years making a documentary film, The Coming War on China, in which the evidence and witnesses warn that nuclear war is no longer a shadow, but a contingency. The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way. They are in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia, and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China.
The great danger this beckons is not news, or it is buried and distorted: a drumbeat of mainstream fake news that echoes the psychopathic fear embedded in public consciousness during much of the 20th century.
Like the renewal of post-Soviet Russia, the rise of China as an economic power is declared an “existential threat” to the divine right of the United States to rule and dominate human affairs.
To counter this, in 2011 President Obama announced a “pivot to Asia”, which meant that almost two-thirds of US naval forces would be transferred to Asia and the Pacific by 2020. Today, more than 400 American military bases encircle China with missiles, bombers, warships and, above all, nuclear weapons. From Australia north through the Pacific to Japan, Korea and across Eurasia to Afghanistan and India, the bases form, says one US strategist, “the perfect noose”.
A study by the RAND Corporation – which, since Vietnam, has planned America’s wars – is entitled, War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable. Commissioned by the US Army, the authors evoke the cold war when RAND made notorious the catch cry of its chief strategist, Herman Kahn — “thinking the unthinkable”. Kahn’s book, On Thermonuclear War, elaborated a plan for a “winnable” nuclear war against the Soviet Union.
Today, his apocalyptic view is shared by those holding real power in the United States: the militarists and neo-conservatives in the executive, the Pentagon, the intelligence and “national security” establishment and Congress.
The current Secretary of Defense, Ashley Carter, a verbose provocateur, says US policy is to confront those “who see America’s dominance and want to take that away from us”.
For all the attempts to detect a departure in foreign policy, this is almost certainly the view of Donald Trump, whose abuse of China during the election campaign included that of “rapist” of the American economy. On 2 December, in a direct provocation of China, President-elect Trump spoke to the President of Taiwan, which China considers a renegade province of the mainland. Armed with American missiles, Taiwan is an enduring flashpoint between Washington and Beijing.
“The United States,” wrote Amitai Etzioni, professor of international Affairs at George Washington University, “is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress.” This war would begin with a “blinding attack against Chinese anti-access facilities, including land and sea-based missile launchers … satellite and anti-satellite weapons”.
The incalculable risk is that “deep inland strikes could be mistakenly perceived by the Chinese as pre-emptive attempts to take out its nuclear weapons, thus cornering them into ‘a terrible use-it-or-lose-it dilemma’ [that would] lead to nuclear war.”
In 2015, the Pentagon released its Law of War Manual. “The United States,” it says, “has not accepted a treaty rule that prohibits the use of nuclear weapons per se, and thus nuclear weapons are lawful weapons for the United States.”
In China, a strategist told me, “We are not your enemy, but if you [in the West] decide we are, we must prepare without delay.” China’s military and arsenal are small compared to America’s. However, “for the first time,” wrote Gregory Kulacki of the Union of Concerned Scientists, “China is discussing putting its nuclear missiles on high alert so that they can be launched quickly on warning of an attack … This would be a significant and dangerous change in Chinese policy … Indeed, the nuclear weapon policies of the United States are the most prominent external factor influencing Chinese advocates for raising the alert level of China’s nuclear forces.”
Professor Ted Postol was scientific adviser to the head of US naval operations. An authority on nuclear weapons, he told me, “Everybody here wants to look like they’re tough. See I got to be tough … I’m not afraid of doing anything military, I’m not afraid of threatening; I’m a hairy-chested gorilla. And we have gotten into a state, the United States has gotten into a situation where there’s a lot of sabre-rattling, and it’s really being orchestrated from the top.”
I said, “This seems incredibly dangerous.”
“That’s an understatement.”
In 2015, in considerable secrecy, the US staged its biggest single military exercise since the Cold War. This was Talisman Sabre; an armada of ships and long-range bombers rehearsed an “Air-Sea Battle Concept for China” – ASB — blocking sea lanes in the Straits of Malacca and cutting off China’s access to oil, gas and other raw materials from the Middle East and Africa.
It is such a provocation, and the fear of a US Navy blockade, that has seen China feverishly building strategic airstrips on disputed reefs and islets in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. Last July, the UN Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled against China’s claim of sovereignty over these islands. Although the action was brought by the Philippines, it was presented by leading American and British lawyers and could be traced to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In 2010, Clinton flew to Manila. She demanded that America’s former colony reopen the US military bases closed down in the 1990s following a popular campaign against the violence they generated, especially against Filipino women. She declared China’s claim on the Spratly Islands – which lie more than 7,500 miles from the United States – a threat to US “national security” and to “freedom of navigation”.
Handed millions of dollars in arms and military equipment, the then government of President Benigno Aquino broke off bilateral talks with China and signed a secretive Enhanced Defense Co-operation Agreement with the US. This established five rotating US bases and restored a hated colonial provision that American forces and contractors were immune from Philippine law.
The election of Rodrigo Duterte in April has unnerved Washington. Calling himself a socialist, he declared, “In our relations with the world, the Philippines will pursue an independent foreign policy” and noted that the United States had not apologized for its colonial atrocities. “I will break up with America,” he said, and promised to expel US troops. But the US remains in the Philippines; and joint military exercises continue.
In 2014, under the rubric of “information dominance” – the jargon for media manipulation, or fake news, on which the Pentagon spends more than $4 billion – the Obama administration launched a propaganda campaign that cast China, the world’s greatest trading nation, as a threat to “freedom of navigation”.
CNN led the way, its “national security reporter” reporting excitedly from on board a US Navy surveillance flight over the Spratlys. The BBC persuaded frightened Filipino pilots to fly a single-engine Cessna over the disputed islands “to see how the Chinese would react”. None of these reporters questioned why the Chinese were building airstrips off their own coastline, or why American military forces were massing on China’s doorstep.
The designated chief propagandist is Admiral Harry Harris, the US military commander in Asia and the Pacific. “My responsibilities,” he told the New York Times, “cover Bollywood to Hollywood, from polar bears to penguins.”
Never was imperial domination described as pithily.
Harris is one of a brace of Pentagon admirals and generals briefing selected, malleable journalists and broadcasters, with the aim of justifying a threat as specious as that with which George W Bush and Tony Blair justified the destruction of Iraq and much of the Middle East.
In Los Angeles in September, Harris declared he was “ready to confront a revanchist Russia and an assertive China …If we have to fight tonight, I don’t want it to be a fair fight. If it’s a knife fight, I want to bring a gun. If it’s a gun fight, I want to bring in the artillery … and all our partners with their artillery.”
These “partners” include South Korea, the launch pad for the Pentagon’s Terminal High Altitude Air Defense system, known as THAAD, ostensibly aimed at North Korea. As Professor Postol points out, it targets China.
In Sydney, Australia, Harris called on China to “tear down its Great Wall in the South China Sea”. The imagery was front page news. Australia is America’s most obsequious “partner”; its political elite, military, intelligence agencies and the media are integrated into what is known as the “alliance”. Closing the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the motorcade of a visiting American government “dignitary” is not uncommon. The war criminal Dick Cheney was afforded this honour.
Although China is Australia’s biggest trader, on which much of the national economy relies, “confronting China” is the diktat from Washington. The few political dissenters in Canberra risk McCarthyite smears in the Murdoch press. “You in Australia are with us come what may,” said one of the architects of the Vietnam war, McGeorge Bundy. One of the most important US bases is Pine Gap near Alice Springs. Founded by the CIA, it spies on China and all of Asia, and is a vital contributor to Washington’s murderous war by drone in the Middle East.
In October, Richard Marles, the defence spokesman of the main Australian opposition party, the Labor Party, demanded that “operational decisions” in provocative acts against China be left to military commanders in the South China Sea. In other words, a decision that could mean war with a nuclear power should not be taken by an elected leader or a parliament but by an admiral or a general.
This is the Pentagon line, a historic departure for any state calling itself a democracy. The ascendancy of the Pentagon in Washington – which Daniel Ellsberg has called a silent coup — is reflected in the record $5 trillion America has spent on aggressive wars since 9/11, according to a study by Brown University. The million dead in Iraq and the flight of 12 million refugees from at least four countries are the consequence.
The Japanese island of Okinawa has 32 military installations, from which Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Afghanistan and Iraq have been attacked by the United States. Today, the principal target is China, with whom Okinawans have close cultural and trade ties.
There are military aircraft constantly in the sky over Okinawa; they sometimes crash into homes and schools. People cannot sleep, teachers cannot teach. Wherever they go in their own country, they are fenced in and told to keep out.
A popular Okinawan anti-base movement has been growing since a 12-year-old girl was gang-raped by US troops in 1995. It was one of hundreds of such crimes, many of them never prosecuted. Barely acknowledged in the wider world, the resistance has seen the election of Japan’s first anti-base governor, Takeshi Onaga, and presented an unfamiliar hurdle to the Tokyo government and the ultra-nationalist prime minister Shinzo Abe’s plans to repeal Japan’s “peace constitution”.
The resistance includes Fumiko Shimabukuro, aged 87, a survivor of the Second World War when a quarter of Okinawans died in the American invasion. Fumiko and hundreds of others took refuge in beautiful Henoko Bay, which she is now fighting to save. The US wants to destroy the bay in order to extend runways for its bombers. “We have a choice,” she said, “silence or life.” As we gathered peacefully outside the US base, Camp Schwab, giant Sea Stallion helicopters hovered over us for no reason other than to intimidate.
Across the East China Sea lies the Korean island of Jeju, a semi- tropical sanctuary and World Heritage Site declared “an island of world peace”. On this island of world peace has been built one of the most provocative military bases in the world, less than 400 miles from Shanghai. The fishing village of Gangjeong is dominated by a South Korean naval base purpose-built for US aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines and destroyers equipped with the Aegis missile system, aimed at China.
A people’s resistance to these war preparations has been a presence on Jeju for almost a decade. Every day, often twice a day, villagers, Catholic priests and supporters from all over the world stage a religious mass that blocks the gates of the base. In a country where political demonstrations are often banned, unlike powerful religions, the tactic has produced an inspiring spectacle.
One of the leaders, Father Mun Jeong-hyeon, told me, “I sing four songs every day at the base, regardless of the weather. I sing in typhoons — no exception. To build this base, they destroyed the environment, and the life of the villagers, and we should be a witness to that. They want to rule the Pacific. They want to make China isolated in the world. They want to be emperor of the world.”
I flew from Jeju to Shanghai for the first time in more than a generation. When I was last in China, the loudest noise I remember was the tinkling of bicycle bells; Mao Zedong had recently died, and the cities seemed dark places, in which foreboding and expectation competed. Within a few years, Deng Xiopeng, the “man who changed China”, was the “paramount leader”. Nothing prepared me for the astonishing changes today.
China presents exquisite ironies, not least the house in Shanghai where Mao and his comrades secretly founded the Communist Party of China in 1921. Today, it stands in the heart of a very capitalist shipping district; you walk out of this communist shrine with your Little Red Book and your plastic bust of Mao into the embrace of Starbucks, Apple, Cartier, Prada.
Would Mao be shocked? I doubt it. Five years before his great revolution in 1949, he sent this secret message to Washington. “China must industrialise.” he wrote, “This can only be done by free enterprise. Chinese and American interests fit together, economically and politically. America need not fear that we will not be co-operative. We cannot risk any conflict.”
Mao offered to meet Franklin Roosevelt in the White House, and his successor Harry Truman, and his successor Dwight Eisenhower. He was rebuffed, or willfully ignored. The opportunity that might have changed contemporary history, prevented wars in Asia and saved countless lives was lost because the truth of these overtures was denied in 1950s Washington “when the catatonic Cold War trance,” wrote the critic James Naremore, “held our country in its rigid grip”.
The fake mainstream news that once again presents China as a threat is of the same mentality.
The world is inexorably shifting east; but the astonishing vision of Eurasia from China is barely understood in the West. The “New Silk Road” is a ribbon of trade, ports, pipelines and high-speed trains all the way to Europe. The world’s leader in rail technology, China is negotiating with 28 countries for routes on which trains will reach up to 400 kms an hour. This opening to the world has the approval of much of humanity and, along the way, is uniting China and Russia.
“I believe in American exceptionalism with every fibre of my being,” said Barack Obama, evoking the fetishism of the 1930s. This modern cult of superiority is Americanism, the world’s dominant predator. Under the liberal Obama, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, nuclear warhead spending has risen higher than under any president since the end of the Cold War. A mini nuclear weapon is planned. Known as the B61 Model 12, it will mean, says General James Cartwright, former vice-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that “going smaller [makes its use] more thinkable”.
In September, the Atlantic Council, a mainstream US geopolitical thinktank, published a report that predicted a Hobbesian world “marked by the breakdown of order, violent extremism [and] an era of perpetual war”. The new enemies were a “resurgent” Russia and an “increasingly aggressive” China. Only heroic America can save us.
There is a demented quality about this war mongering. It is as if the “American Century” — proclaimed in 1941 by the American imperialist Henry Luce, owner of Time magazine — has ended without notice and no one has had the courage to tell the emperor to take his guns and go home.

India Set To ‘Detect-Delete-Deport’ 20 Million Illegal Muslims
10:48 AM 11/27/2016
Indian officials are registering Bangladeshi residents in the state of Assam in an apparent bid to reduce the Muslim population.
“The Hindu rate of population growth is declining. But the Muslim rate is rising. Most of the Muslims here are from Bangladesh. If this continues, the Assamese Hindus will become a minority soon — we will lose our language, our culture, our identity,” Assam’s finance minister told The Washington Post.
Assam shares a long border with Bangladesh, with much of it consisting of wetlands easily crossed by boat. The majority of the Indian Army and its border forces are positioned hundreds of miles away on the Pakistani border, particularly clustered over the disputed territory of Kashmir.
The registration and deportation effort is known as “detect-delete-deport.” Indian officials are now concerned that Bangladeshi Islamic terrorist organizations, like the Islamic State, can infiltrate India by posing as illegal immigrants. Officials say detecting illegal immigrants from Bangladesh will be exceedingly difficult, as some have false identity papers and have even voted.
“As soon as they arrive, their priority is to enter their names into the voter list somehow. They forge all kinds of documents and pay bribes for this,” an Indian judicial official confirmed.
After digitizing Indian census data, officials discovered 31 people who were claiming to be the child of a single man, and another large group claimed the same woman as their mother. Claimants’ birth dates make it impossible for the mother to be legitimately connected to them all, prompting an investigation by Indian officials.
“There are so many of them spread all over the state. We are anxiously waiting for the government to finish its paperwork and uproot them,” a Hindu resident of Assam lamented to The Washington Post.
India and Bangladesh have no official treaty outlining repatriation processes. The Bangladeshi government accepted 10 deported illegal citizens for the first time in early November, the Times of India noted.
Printer steganography is a type of steganography – "hiding data within data" where tiny yellow dots are added to each page. The dots are barely visible and contain encoded printer serial numbers and timestamps. Unlike many forms of steganography, the hidden information is not intended to be available from a computer file, but to allow serial number and time of printing to be determined by close examination of a printout.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation stated in 2015 that "the documents that we previously received through a (Freedom of Information Request) suggested that all major manufacturers of color laser printers entered a secret agreement with governments to ensure that the output of those printers is forensically traceable....it is probably safest to assume that all modern color laser printers do include some form of tracking information that associates documents with the printer's serial number."
