     Ancient Olmecs: Survivors of the city-continent of Atlantis

    Are the Ancient Olmecs Survivors of Atlantis? It is a theory that according to many, could explain the incredible technologies and skills of this enigmatic Ancient Civilization.

    Even though the Olmec civilization is surrounded by numerous mysteries, researchers believe that all the classical cultures of Mesoamerica originated from this mysterious civilization. But where did this ancient civilization originate? And why is it that we know so little about one of the most influential ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica.

    Their stonemason skills were something noteworthy, achieving incredible constructions and monuments, like the giant Olmec heads, before the Aztecs, Mayas and other civilizations of the Americas. The question that has baffled archaeologists and other researchers is how? From where did the ancient Olmecs obtain their knowledge and where do they come from? Is it possible that as some researchers suggest, the Ancient Olmecs are the survivors of Ancient Atlantis?

    Atlantis and the Olmecs


    The Olmecs were a very advanced civilizations that predates the Ancient Maya and Aztec empires. Their knowledge in geology allowed this mysterious ancient civilization to literally “terraform” certain regions. The San Lorenzo plateau is one of those examples. It is considered one of the most important architectural projects in ancient times. The entire region was “modified” to the liking of the ancient Olmecs. This project involved the removal of tons of Earth and rock that allowed the construction of giant terraces, walls and monuments, literally transforming their surroundings into a sacred area for their inhabitants. The question that still remains is, how did ancient man achieve this… thousands of years ago? Is it possible that their advanced technology and knowledge originated on the last city-continent of Atlantis? And if so, are there any similarities between them?


    What if the Ancient Atlanteans actually Migrated to MesoAmerica and ‘kickstarted’ some of the most incredible Ancient Civilizations on Earth: The Aztecs, Mayas and possibly even Incas?

    If Atlantis did exist? How come that there is no evidence of this mythical “continent“, surely such a powerful ancient civilization would have left its mark worldwide, why is it that Plato is one of the few who mentioned Atlantis? Basically the tale about Atlantis did not exist until Plato wrote about it. But what if… Atlantis was destroyed but its people lived on… only that this time they were not called Atlanteans but Olmecs? No one can explain where the Olmecs came from, we know based on research where historians believe they originated from, but due to certain features, like the giant Heads which do not resemble natives from Central America, many believe that the Olmec civilizations actually originated from another place on Earth, a place that some call ancient Atlantis.

    This ancient civilization achieved an incredible degree of development, totally incomprehensible if we consider that we know nothing of their origin nor their roots. They were a society which knew about animal domestication, and beekeeping before any other ancient civilization.
    The Hematite Bar, possible evidence of advanced technology?

    One of the most mysterious findings directly connected with the Ancient Olmec civilization is a 3.5 cm hematite bar that has caused mixed reactions among researches. When placed on water its axis points towards north.

    According to researchers from the University of Michigan, this device was a compass. This changes a lot in history since it would mean that the ancient Olmecs are the inventors of the compass and no the Chinese as previously thought. The device is believed to have been used to position their constructions facing north.


    The Olmec Legacy


    The ancient Olmecs left so much yet so little behind and just like many other great ancient civilization, they too disappeared without a trace. In addition to the gigantic heads, the Olmecs have left other pieces of great artistic value, such as thrones, altars and human figures and no other culture in Mesoamerica attained perfection and the level of mastery of the Olmecs when it comes to sculpting.

    The question is, how did this ancient civilization that was almost in the stone age, manage such perfection that engineers today cannot replicate?

    It is with troubling concern that we report today that the Western Nations have announced this week that the ancient German city of Meerholz, Germany has now become the‘Heart’ of the European Union with the inclusion of the former Soviet block nations of Bulgaria and Romania.

    The symbolism of this ancient citadel, founded in 1170 by the German Emperor Frederick Barbarossa (who was also crowned the Holy Roman Emperor in 1155, and who has been known throughout history as Barbarossa) now being the ‘Heart’ of Europe cannot be lost upon our World of today, particularly when viewed in the light of the German ChancellorAngela Merkel’s vow today to unite all of Europe under one single constitution, which in effect would wipe out the National Sovereignty of all the countries in the European Union.

     This vow being made by Angela Merkel to unite the European Continent under one flag cannot be ignored, especially when viewed in the light of still secret, but ‘obtainable’, Soviet KGB archive files which present a terrifying portrait of the present German Chancellor as being the daughter of the former German Nazi Leader, Adolf Hitler. 

    Though said to be born on July 17, 1954 in the former Soviet controlled German Democratic Republic (East Germany), Angela Merkel’s Stasi GDR file (currently still held in the Soviet KGB archives) states that she was instead born on April 20, 1954, the birth date of her ‘true’ father, Adolph Hitler who was born on April 20, 1889.

    The means of Angela Merkel’s birth, as detailed in these documents, was based upon the research of the German Doctor Carl Clauberg, and though classified as one of the worst Nazi ‘Angel of Death’ doctors, and convicted by the Soviet Courts as being a ‘war criminal’, was nevertheless freed by the Soviets as he was recognized as being the ‘Father’ of artificial insemination.

    According to these reports, Doctor Clauberg was released by the Soviets after serving only seven years of his sentence in return for turning over to the KGB his hidden files on his Nazi artificial insemination experiments and, more horrifically, the frozen sperm of the former Nazi Dictator, Adolf Hitler.

    Upon their receipt of the Nazi files on artificial insemination, along with Hitler’s frozen sperm, the Soviet Politicheskoye Buro (Politburo) authorized the experiments to ‘resurrect’, ‘if possible’, a child bearing the ‘genetic markers’ of Adolph Hitler.

    Doctor Clauberg then brought to the GDR (Communist East Germany) the wife of Adolph Hitler’s, Eva Braun, youngest, and most devoted to the Third Reich, sister, Gretl to be the ‘surrogate’ mother for the intended offspring of the Hitler’s frozen sperm.  It was ‘reasoned’ that the combining of the genes between Hitler’s sperm and Eva Braun’s closest family would produce for the Soviets a ‘near match’ of what a child of Hitler and Eva Braun would have been, should one have been born.

    Upon the birth of Angela Merkel in 1954 it was ‘agreed upon’ by the Soviets, Americans and the Vatican, that she would be ‘placed’ under the ‘control’ of the Catholic Church through its ‘connections’ with the GDR Lutheran Church, and whom she was in fact placed with.  Doctor Clauberg, after the birth of Hitler’s Daughter, and upon his return to West Germany was promptly imprisoned and then murdered almost two years later while still in custody of the West German and Americans.




    In the, aforementioned, ‘agreement’ between the Soviets, the Western Powers and the Vatican, the ‘ascendancy’ of Hitler’s Daughter to power could not be achieved until the Vatican also brought to power a German Pope, and which was accomplished in 2005 following the death of Pope John Paul I, and which then brought to power the former German Nazi Joseph Ratzinger, and who is now known as Pope Benedict XVI, and who assumed the Leadership of the Roman Church on April 20, 2005 following his election the previous day. 

    (It goes without mentioning the significance of the present Nazi Pope taking power on the 116th birthday anniversary of Adolph Hitler.)

    Quickly following the Nazi German Pope to European power, Hitler’s Daughter was elected as the Chancellor of Germany on November 22, 2005, and which is one of the most significant dates for the World Globalists, as it was on November 22, 1859 that the ‘final assault’ upon Christianity was made with the publishing of Charles Darwin’s "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection", and whose intention of fragment the Western Worlds peoples from their truest origins, and meanings, has succeeded beyond their expectations.



    Today, the Daughter of Hitler, holding the same office as her father, Chancellor of Germany, is now the most powerful human being on our Earth as she is also the President of the European Union (EU) and the head of the powerful Western Economic Block known as the G-8. 

    More concerning, however, is that her Fathers dream of uniting Europe under German/Vatican control through war is now to be accomplished by his Daughter using deception. For as we have been taught from our ancient past, in the uniting of the Continent begins the destruction of our present World, and which as the New Comet runs, and as Mabus has died, begins the tribulations of awakening and Final Destruction of the dragons of old.

    World War III and the End of America – the Red Horse Is Coming, and the Horrific Reality Has Been Grossly Underestimated!
    A chilling, eye-opening interview with bestselling author of The New Tactics of Global War, J. R. Nyquist (co-authored with Benjamin Baruch), who has written for WND News and more. This is one show you DO NOT want to miss!

    How BIG of a threat is Russia? With all the strange news about Russia testing missiles, and more, how concerned should we be? Well, according to Jeff Nyquist, we should be ‘very’ concerned! Find out why, and more, in the below feature video—you will be utterly amazed!

    The crisis in Ukraine is no longer receiving major coverage from the American media which would rather cover domestic events within the United States: removal of the Confederate flag; police shootings of ethnic minorities; or Donald Trump’s latest gaff. The American public has forgotten or has chosen to ignore the first invasion of a sovereign European state, and annexation of its territory to occur since the end of the Cold War. Policy makers are carefully monitoring this crisis which could escalate into an unexpected war. The last seven years have witnessed a gradual shift in the military balance of power as Russia has begun to deploy new missile weapons. Moscow’s rhetoric is far too alarming to assume this crisis will simply go away. Given Russia’s renewed military power, the risk of war should not be underestimated.

    Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum’s “War in Europe is not a Hysterical Idea,” published in August 2014, states, “Russian Parliament member Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a court jester who sometimes says things that those in power cannot, argued on Russian television that Putin should use nuclear weapons to bomb Poland and the Baltic countries, and show the West who really holds power in Europe.” As Applebaum noted, Russian President Vladimir Putin indulged Zhirinovsky’s comment, saying that he always “gets the party going.” As Applebaum also noted, Russian dissident Andrei Piontkovsky has recently argued that Putin “really is weighing the possibility of limited nuclear war.”


    In the West, Piontkovsky’s thinking may appear to be alarmist, or a gross exaggeration of the crisis, but the reality on the ground presents a different picture. Russia has already made public threats against the Baltic States, Poland and Romania. On 11 August 2015, the Daily Mail reported, “Shockwaves reverberated through Eastern Europe after Vladimir Putin boasted he could invade five NATO capitals inside two days.” The article quotes Putin as saying, “If I wanted, Russian troops could not only be in Kiev in two days, but in Riga, Vilnius, Tallinn, Warsaw or Bucharest, too.”

    The reality on the ground in Europe today closely resembles the Europe of 1938-1939 on the eve of World War II. On 10 August 2015 the UK based Telegraph newspaper reported, “A third of Russians fear a military attack by the United States while state television tells viewers that the U.S. is intent on surrounding and subjugating Russia, with NATO expansion as the key external threat to the country.” The West views war with Russia as impossible and nuclear war as unthinkable. The West’s attitude today can best be described as complacent. Most Americans believe that the United States is the lone superpower of the world and our only real challenge is from terrorists. The average American thinks he is more likely to be hit by lightning than affected by a future war. The Cold War has long been over, and the West won. Most Americans still believe Russia is now an ally, and any thought of a possible military conflict with the former Soviet Union is viewed as absurd.

    Nasa’s curiosity rover captured two images within the same minute. In the background there seems to be a little black dot in the sky. As usual , we thought it was something on the lens of the camera, but that was until the second image was released. In the second image the “black dot” became suddenly a lot bigger and closer, since the Curiosity rover didn’t move position and didn’t zoom in, we could not understand why it became Bigger.Till we zoomed in, and it became clear that there was something in the sky that changed location. At this time we still don’t know what it is, but in an e-mail we asked NASA’s jpl for an answer. But it seems that NASA can’t come up with a logical reason, they seem to struggle with how the object can become closer without the rover moving or zooming in.

    I’m sure that I am not alone in saying that the music industry has always seemed a bit off. The way that some artist’s music is so fabricated, and their ‘look’ so seemingly over the top that we can’t help but feel like that’s not who they truly are. The camera and the online world share a similar quality… both can smell inauthenticity from a mile away. That feeling is further confirmed with Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, AKA Lady Gaga, speaking out about how her life in the music industry was feeling so shallow that she almost quit altogether. She speaks about how she got in touch with the root cause of her unhappiness.

    Lady Gaga is presumably someone who ‘has it all.’ Fame, money, friends, fortune, legacy and more, yet she is still unhappy. Why is that? In her talk at Yale University’s Emotion Revolution Summit, which was organized by the Born This Way Foundation and the Yale Centre for Emotional Intelligence, she expresses how promoting fragrances she didn’t like, going to parties and shaking hands with people she really didn’t care about, and making money for others while being overworked was so damaging to her passion and creativity, that she was losing her sense of self. There is SO much pressure put on music artists’ to do these things that have nothing to do with their talent and art but because it ‘just comes with the job’ it’s suppose to be OK? Gaga thinks not.


    Recognizing this, she started doing something so simple to get herself back in alignment with what she truly wanted. She started saying “No.” By turning down photo opportunities, not going to events, refusing to be connected to causes she truly didn’t care about and more, Lady GaGa has slowly made her way back to who she really is.

    She said, “…slowly but surely I started to remember who I am. And then you go home and you look in the mirror and and you think YES! I can go to bed with you, every night!” This is not an easy thing to do in general, but becomes even more daunting when one is being inauthentic in their life. Saying one thing but then doing another. It can create so much inner conflict that manifests in a number of different ways. For Lady Gaga, maybe it was her inability to feel good about who was being reflected back. Her main message speaks directly to how fabricated our lives can seem, especially on social media. This is the message I personally believe that Lady Gaga is trying to get across.

    Duncan MacDougall: The Man Who Tried to Weigh the Soul

    In 1907, a Massachusetts doctor named Duncan MacDougall performed an unusual series of experiments. Intrigued by the idea that the human soul had mass, and could therefore be weighed, Dr. MacDougall put together a bed fitted with a sensitive set of beam scales, and convinced a series of terminally ill patients to lie on it during the final moments of their lives.

    MacDougall was nothing if not detail-oriented: He recorded not only each patient’s exact time of death, but also his or her total time on the bed, as well as any changes in weight that occurred around the moment of expiration. He even factored losses of bodily fluids like sweat and urine, and gases like oxygen and nitrogen, into his calculations. His conclusion was that the human soul weighed three-fourths of an ounce, or 21 grams.

    It’s hard to imagine these experiments getting any serious attention from the scientific community today. But the lines of thinking that led to them — and the reactions they generated — remain with us to this day.

    The results of MacDougall’s study appeared in The New York Times in March 1907. The article set off a debate between MacDougall and the physician Augustus P. Clarke, who “had a field day” with MacDougall’s minuscule measurement techniques.

    Clarke pointed out that at the moment of death, the lungs stop cooling the blood, causing the body’s temperature to rise slightly, which makes the skin sweat — accounting for Dr. MacDougall’s missing 21 grams. MacDougall fired back in the next issue, arguing that circulation ceases at the moment of death, so the skin wouldn’t be heated by the rise in temperature. The debate ran all the way to the end of 1907, picking up supporters on both sides along the way.


    For four years, all was quiet on the MacDougall front, but in 1911 he graced The New York Time’s front page with an announcement that he’d upped the ante. This time, he wouldn’t be weighing the human soul — he’d be photographing it at the moment it left the body.

    Although he expressed concern that “the soul substance might become [too] agitated” to be photographed at the moment of death, he did manage to perform a dozen experiments in which he photographed “a light resembling that of the interstellar ether” in or around patients’ skulls at the moments they died.

    MacDougall himself passed away into the interstellar ether in 1920, leaving behind a small band of ardent supporters, along with a far larger group of physicians who seemed incredulous that this farce had gone on so long. Members of the public settled down on one side or the other, and the discussion fell off the radar.

    Except that it never really did — at least not completely.


    References to MacDougall’s experiments continue to spring forth in pop culture every few years, from the Victorian era right up to today. The idea that the soul weighs 21 grams has appeared in novels, songs, and movies — it’s even been the title of a film. Dan Brown described MacDougall’s experiments in some detail in his adventure yarn The Lost Symbol.

    Mention the soul-weighing experiments to a person who’s into parapsychology, and you’ll likely hear a murmur of approval; after all, the idea of scientific proof for the soul offers comfort in much the same way that tarot readings and hotline spiritualists do. Even among more skeptical folks, it’s a topic that comes up now and then in late-night discussions: “Wasn’t there once a guy who tried to weigh the soul…?”


    The experiments’ actual results, and their failure to achieve acceptance as scientific canon, are entirely beside the point. Science has gone one way, and pop culture another. Functional neuroimaging has tied every conceivable function once associated with the soul to specific regions and structures of the brain. Physics has mapped the linkages between subatomic particles so thoroughly that there’s simply no space left for spiritual forces.

    The idea of weighing the soul remains with us. It’s romantic. It’s relatable. It speaks to some of our deepest longings and fears that gripped MacDougall’s readers back in 1907 and still captivate us today.

    To understand why MacDougall wanted to weigh the soul — and why he thought he could — it helps to understand the environment in which he operated. His work is rife with terms and ideas recognizable from early psychological theorists Freud and Jung. There’s a lot of talk about “psychic functions” and “animating principles” — a grasping for the precise scientific language to describe consciousness, and life itself, in a world still ignorant of fMRI and DNA.

    We’re still profoundly ignorant today, as any honest scientist will tell you. Certain behaviors of quantum particles still baffle the brightest minds; and we’re still a long way from understanding exactly how our brains do most of what they do. We keep looking for the dark matter that constitutes more than 80 percent of the universe’s mass, but we haven’t actually seen a single atom of it or know where, exactly, it is.


    And in all these dark corners, we still find people looking for the soul. Some claim we’ll eventually discover it among quantum particles. Others insist it’s got something to do with the electromagnetic waves our brains generate. Most scientists reject these claims. But these researchers and theorists soldier on, unwilling to give up hope that one day we’ll be able to weigh, measure and quantify the hereafter.

    MacDougall’s work resonated, and continues to resonate, not because of what he found (or failed to find) but because of what he suggested. The simple idea behind the experiments was appealing, and for many who followed the debate in The New York Times, that idea alone was enough to make MacDougall’s work worthy of discussion.

    But in 1907, as today, the real, testable, verifiable universe continually proves to be much stranger than anything parapsychology can dream up. How are photons both particles and waves and yet somehow neither? How can there be so many planets in our galaxy, yet so few that harbor life — we think — as we know it? The universe is full of real unsolved mysteries, whose real answers are out there somewhere.

    Turmeric has long been reported for having healing effects on cancer, but now new research shows that its cousin ginger is just as powerful as an alternative treatment in fighting cancer.

    A study by the Georgia State University has found that ginger can decrease the size of a prostate tumour by 56%.

    Another study published by PLoS found that ginger is 10,000 more powerful than Chemotherapy when treating breast cancer malignancy.

    New Cancer Study Shows Ginger is 10,000 Times Stronger Than Chemo

    Healthnutnews.com reports:

    Sometimes referred to as ‘mother cells’ cancer stem cells are the cause of a wide range of cancers, not simply breast cancer. These ‘mother cells’ are responsible for creating the different ‘daughter’ cell types that makeup the tumor colony.

    While cancer stem cells only constitute .2 to 1% of the cell makeup of the tumor, they seem to be almost ‘immortal’.

    What that means is these cancer stem cells are able to self renew; they are capable of continuous differentiation, are resistant to conventional chemotherapeutic agents, and are capable of splitting off and forming new tumor colonies.

    The only way to fully ensure that your body is cancer free is to destroy the cancer stem cells within a tumor.

    This new study found that the pungent constituent in ginger known as 6-shogaol was very active when it came to anti-cancer stem behavior. This constituent is produced when the root is either dried or cooked, two very common uses for ginger already.

    But there is something very specific about 6-shogaol that makes it superior to chemotherapy treatments for cancer.

    Researchers found that these cancer-destroying effects occurred at concentrations that were non-toxic to non-cancer cells. That means that this particular component of ginger only killed cancer cells, leaving healthy cells alone.


    This makes it very different from conventional cancer treatments that do not display that kind of selective cytotoxicity, meaning they can really harm the patient.

    When it comes to breast cancer, 6-shogaol significantly affects the cell cycle therefore resulting in increased cancer cell death. It induces programmed cell death through the induction of autophagy.

    It also inhibits breast cancer spheroids (lumps) from forming. But that isn’t the only astounding thing about 6-shogaol.

    This study also found, that in tests of the cancer drug taxol, it did not show the same level of effectiveness at destroying cancer stem cells and tumors as 6-shogaol.

    Even when the concentrations of taxol were increased, it was still found that 6-shogaol was 10,000 times more effective at killing cancer stem cells, stopping tumors from forming, and keeping healthy cells alive.

    More research needs to be done so we can show that ‘modern cancer medicine’ is not as effective as natural medicine; making our bodies sick while trying to cure a disease is simply not enough anymore.

     Are you a descendant from the legendary Pharaoh Tutankhamun? A study reveals what country King Tut’s descendants come from

    Its possible that you are a descendant from King Tut: A study reveals what country Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s descendants come from.

    Are you male and come from Spain, UK or France? If so there is a chance you might be related to one of Egypt’s most enigmatic Pharaohs: Tutankhamun. Pharaoh Tutankhamun became the ruler of Egypt at the age of nine, something that remains a mystery for most historians. The enigmatic boy-king lived from approximately 1341BC to 1323BC ruling over the land of the Pharaohs from 1333BC until 1323BC. According to scholars his name, Tutankhamun roughly translates to “Living Image of Amun”.

    Are you a descendant from the legendary Pharaoh Tutankhamun? A study reveals what country King Tut’s descendants come from

    According to the Swiss genetics company, it is believed that the earliest migration of haplogroup R1b1a2 into Europe began sometime around 7000BC with the spread of agriculture. According to writings at iGENEA’s website, in Egypt the contingent of this haplogroup is below 1% and partially caused by european immigration during the last 2.000 years.

    As if that wasn’t enough, researchers have more curious details. They suggest the most curious case was that of the Spanish and British whose proportion of men that share the same haplogroup rises to a staggering seventy percent.

    ‘It was very interesting to discover that he belonged to a genetic group in Europe – there were many possible groups in Egypt that the DNA could have belonged to,’ said Roman Scholz, director of the iGENEA Centre. Interestingly around 70 % of Spanish and a 60 % of French men belong to the genetic group of King Tut, one of the most enigmatic rulers of ancient Egypt.


    ‘We think the common ancestor lived in the Caucasus about 9,500 years ago,’ said Scholz.

    However, the results from the Swiss company have been criticized by numerous scientists around the world, among them Carsten Push who is a geneticist at Germany’s Tubingen University. Push was part of the team that actually constructed King Tut’s DNA from samples of mummified remains and his relatives.

    Push claims that iGENEA’s claims are anything but possible since they failed to publish the data belonging to Tut’s Y-Chromosome, found only in males. This is of extreme importance since said chromosome would reveal his male descendants.

    iGENEA reconstructed the DNA profile of Tutankhamun based on a film produced by the Discovery Channel.

    Whether you’re in for a long night at work or simply need to cram for the next batch of exams, many individuals have resorted to energy drinks to get them through the night. As it turns out, the benefits of temporary energy are outweighed by other negative aspects of energy drinks. Red Bull has proven to be one such drink mired in controversy.

    What follows are 10 controversial Red Bull facts:

    10. It’s believed that Red Bull caused a fatal heart attack for 21-year-old Chloe Leach after drinking four cans and several vodka drinks also containing caffeine.



    9. One of Red Bull’s ingredients, taurine, is an amino acid exclusively found in animal protein primarily used for cat food.


    8. In 2014, Austrians sued the Red Bull company over false advertising, saying the drink is ineffective in giving people energy. 


    7. Red Bull’s ad team once again landed in hot water after a commercial aired suggesting members of the Titanic would have survived if they’d drunk Red Bull and grown wings.


    6. In 2009, German officials banned the sale of Red Bull in six German states after discovering traces of cocaine in the drink.



    5. While a popular element in mixed drinks, studies say the caffeine inhibits awareness of inebriation and even makes drinkers feel more impulsive. 



    4. Countries like France, Norway, and Denmark all initially banned the sale of Red Bull.


    3. Many argue Red Bull should carry warning labels for caffeine content. Caffeine intoxication is a growing problem among college students and can lead to death in rare cases. 


    2. Red Bull is known to affect the calcium content of bones due to caffeine, leading to slight increased risk for osteoporosis



    1. Red Bull was the common link between three deaths in Sweden; it was officially discovered that three young people who’d all been drinking Red Bull later died of massive kidney failure that same night.

    Physics needs some new running shoes, or at least an updated framework in which to understand itself so that it won’t be running in circles trying to get to Saturn or a distant star in a galaxy far, far away.

    That’s the sentiment among those in elevated levels of government as well as individuals who understand higher consciousness. Why? There are places all over the Universe we can travel to in an instant, using energetic portals in space, and the use of our consciousness.

    The proof is indeed mounting that there are portals to other worlds. Though the documentation is still ‘sketchy’ to describe how this is done in black and white, there is a trail there for those who want to follow it.

    There are literary hints as well as soft evidence and testimony of numerous whistleblowers. Consider Alice’s rabbit hole. The tornado in the Wizard of Oz. Platform 9 ¾ in Harry Potter. The ‘Gate of Hell’ in Dante’s Inferno. These are just a few.

    NASA Researchers Disclose the Truth About Time Travel & Dimensional Portals

    Ancients knew of portals not just to other Star Systems, but also to the inner earth, using stones, crystals, pyramids, and other structures aligned with the ley lines of this planet.

    Within this framework we can look at the work of a NASA researcher who has revealed that there are portals to other dimensions that open and close every day. They are found within the earth’s magnetic field, and they are in a direct line to the sun’s atmosphere 93 million miles away.

    Though NASA hasn’t labeled them as portals, and instead calls them Boom Tubes, electron diffusion regions or ‘X’ points, the process of magnetic resonance allows them to exist.

    This means that an extraordinary’ opening in space or time’ does exist, and NASA has known about them for an undefined duration. These ‘short-cuts’ are talked about in science fiction, and often dismissed by ‘real’ scientists.

    Jack Scudder, a NASA plasma physicist from the University of Iowa, refers to X-points as:

    “Places where the magnetic field of Earth connects to the magnetic field of the Sun” These portals can be elusive, however, so if one were to imagine utilizing them for space travel, they would have to be an expert in space geography and mathematics to time them correctly.“ Or, one could simply speak to the whistleblowers in the US government. Some claim that the military industrial complex has had the ability time travel through stargate portals for over 40 years.

    Andrew D. Basiago is a former participant in DARPA Project Pegasus (1968-72) who claims that the military developed Tesla-based quantum teleportation and time travel in the time space hologram, initiating the U.S. program of time-space Chrononauts.

    Basiago claims the military has been using portals since the 1970s. For more than 10 years, Basiago has been trying to tell the general public that portal-based time travel is not something from a sci-fi movie, but a present reality.

    Basiago not only talks about time travel to more distant places, but claims the CIA has a Mars-jump-room program which allowed our military to build bases on Mars.

    He says that though he has worked with some of the leading quantum physicists, the information that he discloses is considered heretical by mainstream physicists, and the military as well.

    Basiago states he participated in two ‘secret’ military programs. He says he was one of the many American children chosen to participate in time travel experiments.

    His accounts of what he experienced are measured with logic and it is difficult to discount what he says as pure fantasy. It is also, of course, in the best interest of the US military to keep these technologies secret, since they can be weaponized.

    This is no secret, since Rumsfeld has admitted that one of the boons of research done within Project Pegasus is the ability to use teleportation to deliver troops to the appropriate place on the battlefield.


    So how does this happen?


    This is a similar question that was attempted in the movie Contact staring Jodie Foster. The real life astronomer and ET chaser that inspired her character is Dr. Jill Tarter. She has stated, when asked what got her interested in the search for life beyond this planet:

    The Cyclops Report from 1971— written by Barney Oliver and John Billingham — was the result of a series of summer studies at NASA Ames and Stanford.

    “In reading that workshop report, I was impressed by the notion that after millennia of asking priests and philosophers what to believe about life beyond Earth, the middle of the 20th century presented us with some tools that permitted scientists and engineers to do experiments to try to find the answer.

    “Telescopes, rather than belief systems, could potentially show us what is, rather than what others said we should believe. I realized that I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills (undergrad degree in engineering physics and Ph.D in astronomy) to join this exploration. I got hooked, and have stayed hooked all these years.” We’re all hooked. That’s because if alien life exists, then surely there are forms of life that are way more advanced (both consciously and technologically) than we are, and these forms of life most assuredly can travel ‘in the blink of an eye’ without necessarily having to overcome gravity, the limitations of rocket fuel, or even the scarcity of physical materials which could not easily withstand the heat of the sun or the extreme cold of deep space.
    If our minds could simply create the energy we need to travel more than 9 billion light years before we’re 9 billion years old, then space travel would become commonplace.

    Perhaps even our highly developed intuition would understand that strange math that allows thought to travel as a wave and to form more cogently in material form on the other side of Pluto.


    Nikola Tesla alluded to something of this nature. He developed a ‘teleportation machine’ which formed a ‘shimmering curtain.’
    “Radiant energy is a form of energy that Tesla discovered that is latent and pervasive in the universe and has among its properties the capacity to bend time-space.” – Andrew Basiago Passing through this curtain of energy, Basiago would enter a “vortal tunnel” that would send him to his destination.
    The other teleportation devices included a “plasma confinement chamber” in New Jersey and a “jump room” in El Segundo, California. There was also some kind of “holographic technology,” which allowed them to travel “both physically and virtually.”

    They weren’t always safe, though. One of Basiago’s cohorts, Alfred Webre, recalls one instance in which a child returned from his temporal voyage before his legs.

    As he puts it:
    “He was writhing in pain with just stumps where his legs had been.” These bugs, according toWebre, have been ironed out in the 40 or so years since the experiments began.
    If our consciousness just needs to catch up to the materialization of matter, anything is possible, but we’ve got plenty of work to do before packing a bag for MACS0647-JD a mere 13.3 billion light years away.

    I’d hate to forget my wallet in Sacramento while my energy was being catapulted to this distant galaxy, let alone my legs. New shoes indeed.

    The moment some stranger sees you, his or her brain makes a thousand calculations: Are you someone to approach or to avoid? Are you friend or foe? Do you have status and authority? Are you trustworthy, competent, likable, confident, and so on.

    And these calculations are made at lightning speed — making major decisions about one another in the first seven seconds of meeting.

    However, in this campaign ad run by Coca-Cola, the ‘seeing’ part is missing. They invited six strangers to sit in a dark room together. One-by-one, they share their stories with each other. When the lights come on, they are astonished. Their reactions are proof that “judging a book by its cover” is never a good idea.

    “A mysterious bright light in the sky has sent Californians into panic,” reports the BBC. “Videos posted online show a bright flare rising high, before a wide, bright blue flash emerges in a cone shape. Many videos continue to track the light for several minutes.”

    Last night, Californians immediately leapt to social media to propose their theories of the phenomenon, ranging from a nuclear missile attack to meteors. “Law agencies and news media in San Diego were flooded with calls about 6 p.m. from people reporting everything from a flare to a comet to a nuclear bomb in the western sky,” reports the San Diego Union Tribune.

    Just a day earlier, the FAA had issued flight restrictions for the Los Angeles International Airport, denying aircraft access to one of the most frequent approach paths for international and domestic travel.

    The official explanation is a lie

    The “official” explanation of this event — and remember that “official” explanations are almost always cover stories — is that the U.S. Navy launched a test missile just because they “routinely” test missiles.

    “Media in California confirmed that the light came from an unarmed Trident missile fired from the USS Kentucky navy submarine,” reports the BBC. While they call the missile “unarmed,” they fail to mention that the Trident missile normally carries a thermonuclear warhead. There’s also no way for the media to know whether this missile was really unarmed or not, as the sole source on that question is the U.S. Navy itself.

    Apparently the media thinks the public is so incredibly stupid that they’ll believe the U.S. Navy has nowhere else to launch a test missile other than right next to Los Angeles. Somehow we’re supposed to believe the entire Pacific Ocean won’t work for such a test launch, so they have to launch it adjacent to the airport and thereby inconvenience commercial aviation traffic for an entire week.
    Obviously, the official cover story is pure bunk. So what’s the real story behind this? It all has to do with China and the covert war that’s already underway between China, the US and Russia.



    China’s military submarines are a huge threat to U.S. national security

    To get up to speed on what’s really happening, read this report from the Congressional Research Service (PDF) found at www.fas.org

    Authored by Ronald O’Rourke, Specialist in Naval Affairs, and just released on Sep. 21, 2015, the report is entitled, “China Naval Modernization: Implications for U.S. Navy Capabilities.”

    The report states:

    China is building a modern and regionally powerful navy with a limited but growing capability for conducting operations beyond China’s near-seas region. Observers of Chinese and U.S. military forces view China’s improving naval capabilities as posing a potential challenge in the Western Pacific to the U.S. Navy’s ability to achieve and maintain control of blue-water ocean areas in wartime — the first such challenge the U.S. Navy has faced since the end of the Cold War.

    China’s naval modernization effort encompasses a broad array of platform and weapon acquisition programs, including anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBMs), anti-ship cruise missiles (ASCMs), submarines, surface ships, aircraft, and supporting C4ISR (command and control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) systems.

    The most important section of this report, in my assessment, is this description of China’s ship-killing ballistic missiles:

    China is fielding an ASBM, referred to as the DF-21D, that is a theater-range ballistic missile equipped with a maneuverable reentry vehicle (MaRV) designed to hit moving ships at sea. DOD states that China continues to field an ASBM based on a variant of the CSS-5 (DF-21) MRBM that it began deploying in 2010. This missile provides the PLA the capability to attack aircraft carriers in the western Pacific. The CSS-5 Mod 5 has a range exceeding 1,500 km [about 810 nm] and is armed with a maneuverable warhead.

    China, in other words, has weapons capable of destroying U.S. aircraft carriers, destroyers and other ships. The 1,500 km range is key because it allows a very wide operational range.

    Just recently in August, the Chinese and Russians held their largest naval joint exercise in history as a way to “counter U.S. influence in Asia.” As reported by Collapse.news:

    The Russian and Chinese navies are set to hold their largest joint exercises ever, featuring scores of warships, hundreds of troops and an amphibious landing, in what appears to be a deepening of ties meant to counter a rising U.S. military presence in Asia.

    In September, Chinese warships were spotted operating near the coast of Alaska. This was reported across the mainstream media, including in the Wall Street Journal in an article entitled, “Five Chinese Navy Ships Are Operating in Bering Sea off Alaska.”

    Fox News also covered the same story: “5 Chinese warships spotted off Alaska coast during President Obama’s visit.”

    In response to that territorial provocation, the U.S. Navy sent the USS Lassen destroyer to within 12 nautical miles of China’s newly-constructed military bases in the Spratly Islands.
    China’s communist government openly condemned the act as a provocation of war. From the Straits Times:

    China claims most of the South China Sea and on Oct 9 its Foreign Ministry warned that Beijing would “never allow any country to violate China’s territorial waters and airspace in the Spratly Islands, in the name of protecting freedom of navigation and overflight.”


    Secret space weapon attacks on China’s industrial infrastructure

    This is all on top of the Pentagon’s secret space weapon attacks on China’s industrial infrastructure.
    As I wrote on August 17 of this year, Natural News was informed by mainland Chinese dissidents that they believe the string of mysterious industrial explosions such as the massive Tianjin explosion was caused by kinetic strikes from orbital platform weapons operated by the United States.
    China then retaliated by covertly destroying a U.S. weapons depot in Tokyo, using old-school sabotage techniques. Two additional industrial explosions in China soon followed.

    Taiwan surrenders to China with insane “One China” admission by President Ma

    China’s war of aggression is also in high gear on the geopolitical side, with China pressuring Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou to publicly state yesterday that Taiwan is now part of China!

    A massive cultural backlash in Taiwan is now surging, as most of the country’s citizens do not want to be part of communist China. Taiwan’s DPP party is rapidly rising to prominence on the platform of Taiwan as a sovereign nation, but China remains in an aggressive military stance, always threatening Taiwan with an armed invasion if Taiwan attempts to “secede” from China. (Taiwan’s GMT party, which is a “pro-China” party, has been plagued by an endless stream of scandals and corruption.)

    From Channel News Asia:“Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou emphasized the island must continue to uphold the 1992 Consensus with China’s Communist Party in order to promote cross-strait relations and development, as he marked the 22nd anniversary of the historic talks between Taipei and Beijing in Singapore.”

    Taiwan is a critical strategic island for U.S. influence over the Pacific naval theater of operations. Taiwan’s airports and military basis provide key strategic locations for staging U.S. aircraft and even bombers if conflict breaks out with China.

    As you ponder all this, keep in mind that Taiwan’s media giants have all been infiltrated and taken over by communist China. The Taiwan media is now China’s state-run media. Only small, independent websites can be trusted to report the truth.

    The Trident missile launch near Los Angeles was a warning shot against China in a last-ditch effort to prevent all-out war

    The upshot of all this is that the U.S. and China have been engaged in a covert war for quite some time, and that covert war has escalated month by month, even as the official state-run news organizations of both nations have denied any war is happening at all.

    Last night’s test launch of the Trident missile over Orange County was staged near a high population area for a tactical reason: To have as many witnesses (and videos) as possible, sending a very visible warning message to China that says, “We can destroy you if you don’t back off.”
    The Trident missile, built by Lockheed Martin, is a thermonuclear missile system (Fleet Ballistic Missile) with a range of at least 4,000 nautical miles. See the Trident missile page on the U.S. Navy website. Just one Trident missile launched from somewhere in the Pacific Ocean could devastate China with a nuclear strike on Beijing.


    The U.S. Navy’s “showcasing” of the Trident missile near Los Angeles is a $31 million billboard that tells China, “Don’t f–k with us.”

    Nobody in the mainstream media is report this; probably because, with a few exceptions, they are mostly clueless, brain-dead propagandists who know nothing about international geopolitics and the real state of conflict in our world. Also, they are ordered what to write by the U.S. government regime in exactly the same way China’s “journalists” are ordered what to write by the Chinese regime.

    Right now, the United States and China are in an undeclared state of war. China stands ready to strike the USA with nuclear warheads or high altitude EMP weapons that would destroy the U.S. power grid and cause 90% casualties across the unprepared population. Legendary American journalist Ted Koppel has even written a book about this entitled Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath.


    China and Russia preparing massive first strike against America

    Many people believe that China and Russia are working together to prepare for a massive first strike against the United States that would cripple its defenses and economy. Following that first strike, a land invasion would commence using Russian troops.

    Supporting this theory, Russian submarines have been spotted near undersea internet cables in an obvious effort to document their whereabouts so that the cables can be instantly severed, unleashing a devastating blow to the U.S. economy, Wall Street and even military communications. “Russian submarines and spy ships are aggressively operating near the vital undersea cables that carry almost all global Internet communications, raising concerns among some American military and intelligence officials that the Russians might be planning to attack those lines in times of conflict,” reports WND.com. ” In times of tension or conflict, the ultimate Russian hack on the United States could involve severing the fiber-optic cables at some of their hardest-to-access locations to halt the instant communications on which the West’s governments, economies and citizens have grown dependent.”

    At the same time a new Russian “drone sub” has been created that can strike U.S. coastal cities and harbors with nuclear weapons. Writing on NationalSecurity.news, Jon Dougherty states, “According to officials, the developmental unmanned underwater vehicle, or UUV, when it is deployed, will be outfitted with megaton-class nuclear warheads that can destroy key ports used by U.S. nuclear-armed and powered submarines like Kings Bay, Georgia, and Puget Sound in Washington state.”

    The ultimate pre-emptive strike on America: EMP attack, cyber attack, currency wars and bandwidth blackouts

    If you put the pieces of the puzzle together, what’s really shaping up here is a massive, multi-layered pre-emptive strike against America, an empire seen by the rest of the world as an insane bully that meddles with everything on the international stage. This first strike, combining the forces and expertise of both China and Russia, may consist of:

    • • High-altitude EMP detonation over North America, destroying regional power grids.
    • • A devastating currency war initiated by China announcing its own gold-backed currency while dumping U.S. Treasury debt on the open market.
    • • A Russian-led severing of undersea fiber optic cables.
    • • Russian-launched nuclear missiles targeting U.S. coastal cities.
    • • China-led assault on U.S. Navy warships using anti-ship ballistic missiles (ASBMs).
    • • A cyber warfare attack on key U.S. infrastructure, including water delivery systems, nuclear power plants and the power grid.

    As all this is going on, the Obama administration — a treasonous regime of criminals who have seized control of the U.S. government in an effort to destroy America from within — has been firing all the top military commanders who know how to survive such an assault. Instead of America’s military focusing on how to win wars, troops are now subjected to sensitivity training and the politically correct push for female troops on the front lines.

    This is not fiction. Even the U.S. White House is now openly preparing for a massive EMP attack launched by China.

    Dave Hodges also reports in this article about World War III:

    Congress has now heard testimony that the United States is not ready for World War III while Russia is chomping at the bit to “get it on”. Further Congress has learned that Obama has been once again been badly outmaneuvered by Putin, the master chess player… the Chinese and the Russians are going to kick America’s rear end in the upcoming war.

    Very disturbingly, there is a growing awareness, among Congress, that the United States cannot win World War III. There was only discussion, in these congressional meetings, as to whether, or not, the U.S. could prevail in World War III, not win the conflict.

    A woman in California heard a bloodcurdling shriek in her back garden – then ran out and found THIS.

    The hideous creature appeared in San Jose just hours after Californians reported a glowing bright UFO over the state.

    Gianna Peponis said, ‘I heard something scream at like 11.30 last night and went on my side yard and found this thing. It was dead when I found it.


    Some commenters on Facebook and Reddit have suggested that the hideous creature could actually be the foetus of a deer, partly eaten by predators.



    Another user said, less helpfully, ‘I don’t know what the f*** that is. If your friend is brave enough to remove it from their property, remind them to salt the ground afterwards.

    “Nothing good can ever happen there now.’

    Hayu Marca's 'Gate Of The Gods' Is A Stargate, Do The Declassified FBI Documents Prove It Works?

    This mysterious and enigmatic stone monument is evidence of the incredible skills of our ancestors who inhabited the region of what today is known as Peru. This huge ‘stargate’ is one of the most impressive monuments in the region, but the truth behind it could be far greater than any of us thought possible. The so-called Stargate was discovered by Jose Luis Delgado Mamanu, a local mountaineering guide who was exploring the area. While enjoying the view at the Hayu Marca mountain region located in southern Peru, he came across the giant door-like structure which was carved out of a huge rock that measures seven meters in height and seven meters in width, with a mysterious ‘door-like’ feature at its center.

    According to some legends, the smaller ‘door’ represents the entrance for mortal souls, while the larger and more symmetrical ‘entrance’ represents the entrance used by deities to access our realm. Curiously, Mamani stated that he had long before dreamed about this structure and saw what appeared to be a door covered with pink marble with several figures located to the sides.


    Local legends say that in the distant past, an Incan priest called Amaru Muru, from the temple of the seven rays fled from his temple with a sacred golden disk known as “the key to the gods of the seven rays“. The priest hid in the mountains of Hayu Brand afraid that the Spanish might take the key from him.

    Later the priest arrived at the “Gate of the Gods” at Hayu Marca, where he showed the key to several priests and shamans of the area. After they performed a ritual, the door opened with a blue light emanating from it. The priest, Amaru Muru handed the golden disk to one of the shamans and entered the door, he was never seen again.

    These visions are closely linked to the legends of the native Indians of the area that tell that this “door” was a “gateway to the land of the Gods”. Legends speak that in the distant past, great heroes crossed into the land of the gods, enjoying a prosperous and glorious immortal life.

    Is it possible that mysterious places like the “Gate of the Gods” at Hayu Marca are mysterious monuments that go far beyond our ‘rational’ understanding? Is it possible that like many other monuments, this too is part of the global network of ancient sites, with technology not understood by today’s generation?

    The “Gate of the Gods” at Hayu Marca resembles the Puerta Del Sol de Tiwanaku (Tiahuanaco) and five other archaeological sites in the vicinity. Mysteriously if we draw straight lines between the Gate of the Gods” at Hayu Marca, the Puerta del Sol de Tiwanaku and other archaeological sites, we get a strange cross that joins at the center at the plateau of Lake Titicaca, one of the most sacred places in the region.


    Is it possible that there are “portals” located on Earth which are connected to other galaxies? Planets? Dimensions? And that one of those portals is the “Gate of the Gods” at Hayu Marca? Is it possible that these ancient texts are more than just stories of the past? And that there is something true and unique about them? We look forward to finding out more about these mysterious locations and there hidden secrets.

    If the Hayu Marca gate of the gods is in fact an ancient stargate, is it possible that others exist elsewhere on the planet? And if so… where do they lead?

    Interestingly, I cannot help and make a connection between the gate of the gods at Hayu Marca and a document declassified by the FBI not long ago stating that Beings from OTHER dimensions visited Earth. The official link from the FBI vault can be found here:

    http://vault.fbi.gov/UFO/UFO%20Part%201%20of%2016/view

    According to reports and “Declassified” documents, we have been visited by numbs extraterrestrial species, some of these, are not only from other planets, but from other dimensions. Some of these beings originate from an ethereal plane coexistent with our physical universe. These “entities”, which could “materialize” on our planet appeared as giant translucent figures.

    Is it possible that these beings sued Stargates like the one at Hayu Marca to travel between dimensions? And what if, all of this is more than just a theory, a theory that we have failed to understand due to our skepticism towards these subjects?

    BREAKING: Washington DC Prepares for World War III

    The US military-intelligence complex is engaged in systematic preparations for World War III. As far as the Pentagon is concerned, a military conflict with China and/or Russia is inevitable, and this prospect has become the driving force of its tactical and strategic planning.

    Three congressional hearings Tuesday demonstrated this reality. In the morning, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a lengthy hearing on cyber-warfare. In the afternoon, a subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee discussed the present size and deployment of the US fleet of aircraft carriers, while another subcommittee of the same panel discussed the modernization of US nuclear weapons.

    The World Socialist Web Site will provide a more detailed account of these hearings, which were attended by a WSWS reporter. But certain preliminary observations can be made.

    None of the hearings discussed the broader implications of the US preparations for war, or what a major war between nuclear-armed powers would mean for the survival of the human race, and even of life on our planet. On the contrary, the hearings were examples of what might be called the routinization of World War III. A US war with China and/or Russia was taken as given, and the testimony of witnesses and questions from senators and representatives, Democrats and Republicans alike, concerned the best methods for prevailing in such a conflict.

    The hearings were component parts of an ongoing process. The witnesses referred to their past writings and statements. The senators and representatives referred to previous testimony by other witnesses. In other words, the preparations for world war, using cyber weapons, aircraft carriers, bombers, missiles and the rest of a vast array of weaponry, have been under way for a protracted period of time. They are not a response to recent events, whether in the South China Sea, Ukraine, Syria or anywhere else.


    Each of the hearings presumed a major US conflict with another great power (sometimes unnamed, sometimes explicitly designated as China or Russia) within a relatively short time frame, years rather than decades. The danger of terrorism, hyped incessantly for the purposes of stampeding public opinion, was downplayed and to some extent discounted. At one point in the Senate hearing on cyberwarfare, in response to a direct question from Democrat Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, the panel witnesses all declared that their greatest concern was nation-states, not terrorists.

    One of the witnesses at that hearing was Dr. Peter W. Singer, listed as a “Strategist and Senior Fellow” for New America, a Washington think tank. He titled his presentation, “The Lessons of World War 3.” He began his prepared statement with the following description of that imagined conflict:

    “US and Chinese warships battle at sea, firing everything from cannons to cruise missiles to lasers. Stealthy Russian and American fighter jets dogfight in the air, with robotic drones flying as their wingmen. Hackers in Shanghai and Silicon Valley duel in digital playgrounds. And fights in outer space decide who wins below on Earth. Are these scenes from a novel or what could actually take place in the real world the day after tomorrow? The answer is both.”

    None of the hearings saw any debate about either the likelihood of a major war or the necessity of winning that war. No one challenged the assumption that “victory” in a world war between nuclear-armed powers is a meaningful concept. The discussion was entirely devoted to what technologies, assets and human resources were required for the US military to prevail.

    This was just as true for the Democratic senators and representatives as for their Republican counterparts. By custom, the two parties are seated on opposite sides of the committee or subcommittee chairmen. Without that arrangement, there would be no way of detecting, from their questions and expressions of opinion, which party they belonged to.


    Contrary to the media portrayal of Washington as deeply divided between parties with intransigently opposed political outlooks, there was bipartisan agreement on this most fundamental of issues, the preparation of a new imperialist world war.

    The unanimity of the political representatives of big business by no means suggests that there are no obstacles in the path of this drive to war. Each of the hearings grappled, in different ways, with the profound crisis confronting American imperialism. This crisis has two major components: the declining economic power of the United States compared to its major rivals, and the internal contradictions of American society, with the deepening alienation of the working class and particularly the youth.

    At the House subcommittee hearing on aircraft carriers, the chairman noted that one of the witnesses, a top Navy admiral, had expressed concern over having “an 11-carrier navy in a 15-carrier world.” There were so many challenges confronting Washington, he continued, that what was really needed was a navy of 21 aircraft carriers—double the present size, and one that would bankrupt even a country with far more resources than the United States.

    The Senate hearing on cybersecurity touched briefly on the internal challenge to American militarism. The lead witness, retired Gen. Keith Alexander, former director of the National Security Agency and former head of the Pentagon’s CyberCommand, bemoaned the effect of leaks by NSA contractor Edward Snowden and Army private Chelsea Manning, declaring that “insider attacks” were one of the most serious threats facing the US military.

    Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia asked him directly, referring to Snowden, “Should we treat him as a traitor?” Alexander responded, “He should be treated as a traitor and tried as such.” Manchin nodded heartily, in evident agreement.

    While the witnesses and senators chose to use the names of Snowden and Manning to personify the “enemy within,” they were clearly conscious that the domestic opposition to war is far broader than a few individual whistleblowers.


    This is not a matter simply of the deep-seated revulsion among working people in response to 14 years of bloody imperialist interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Yemen and across North Africa, important as that is.

    A war between the United States and a major power like China or Russia, even if it were possible to prevent its escalation into an all-out nuclear exchange, would involve a colossal mobilization of the resources of American society, both economic and human. It would mean further dramatic reductions in the living standards of the American people, combined with a huge blood toll that would inevitably fall mainly on the children of the working class.

    Ever since the Vietnam War, the US military has operated as an all-volunteer force, avoiding conscription, which provoked widespread opposition and direct defiance in the 1960s and early 1970s. A non-nuclear war with China or Russia would mean the restoration of the draft and bring the human cost of war home to every family in America.

    Under those conditions, no matter how great the buildup of police powers and the resort to repressive measures against antiwar sentiments, the stability of American society would be put to the test. The US ruling elite is deeply afraid of the political consequences. And it should be.

    TOP secret Russian nuclear war plans have been leaked apparently by mistake after a TV news report of a high-level military meeting failed to blur out a document. The news item concerned a conference of army commanders and president Vladimir Putin about their country’s readiness to launch a war in the face of missile defense shield being proposed by NATO.

    The Kremlin fears the shield could eventually become capable of shooting its nuclear missiles out of the sky and so weakening the strength of its nuke force.

    But the document reveals a nuclear submarine weapons system under the water involving lethal torpedoes.


    This comes amid rising tensions over Russia’s role in the brutal Syrian civil war and the furore over allegations that its athletes cheated in the 2012 London Olympics and face bans in the games in Rio next year.

    During the meeting Russia announced plans it is to counter NATO’s US-led missile defense program by deploying new strike weapons.

    Mr Putin said: “References to the Iranian and the North Korean nuclear missile threat just have served to cover up the true plans, and their true task is to neutralize nuclear potential of other nuclear powers – Russia in particular.”


    But he said over the past three years the Russian military-industrial complex has created and successfully tested a number of ways of rendering the missile shield useless.

    He said: “Such systems have already begun to enter the military this year.

    “And now we are talking about development of new types of weapons.”

    Tensions between America, Russia, and China have been growing for a number of years and now with Russia’s and China actions, we could be looking at World War III. Especially considering Obama’s stance on Syria.

    In fact, as I write this, the US military-intelligence complex is engaged in systematic preparations for World War III and as far as the Pentagon is concerned, a military conflict with China and/or Russia is inevitable.

    The American one-dollar bill has been an enormous source of mystery for many years.

    While it is something that nearly every American has come into contact with over and over again, there still remains an enormous shroud of mystery around many of the bill’s markings.

    Just like the mysterious disappearance of the lost colony of Roanoke, the hidden meanings behind the symbols on the one-dollar bill remain some of America’s greatest puzzles.

    What do these symbols actually mean? Why does the pyramid have a glowing eye at the top of it? And what is the creature that seems to be hidden next to the number “1″ on the front of the bill?

    To find out, pull out a one-dollar bill — then scroll through this incredible list below to see just what has been hiding right in your wallet all of these years.

    Have you spotted other hidden meanings in the American one-dollar bill? Let Disclose.tv know in the comments!

    The Creature

    This hidden creature might just be too small for you to spot without taking out a magnifying glass. In the upper-right corner of the bill, just to the upper-left of the number “1″, there appears to be a teeny-tiny creature peeking out.

    There are several guesses as to what this is. Some say that this is the shape of an owl. Many believe it was put there as an anti-counterfeit measure.

    Others, however, don’t see an owl at all; they see a spider. Some argue a hidden spider would make much more sense, given the “web” pattern behind the number “1.”

    There is a third theory that the creature becomes the skull portion of a skull and crossbones when you turn it sideways.

    If you examine your bill closely, do you see the tiny face?

    The Letter

    Luckily, in order to spot this item, you won’t have to break out your magnifying glass. In fact, while most people don’t know what this letter to the left of Washington’s face represents, it does actually have a logical explanation.

    The big letter “G” is one of many letters that represent exactly which Federal Reserve bank was responsible for printing. In this case, the “G” stands for Chicago.

    The other letters you might spot are: “A” for Boston, “B” for New York, “C” for Philadelphia, “D” for Cleveland, “E” for Richmond, “F” for Atlanta, “H” for St. Louis, “I” for Minneapolis, “J” for Kansas City, “K” for Dallas, and “L” for San Francisco.

    At least this mystery of the one-dollar bill remains solvable.

    The Eagle

    On the back of the bill, the eagle appears to be clutching 13 arrows, as well as an olive branch with 13 berries. The eagle wears a shield with 13 horizontal stripes and 13 vertical stripes. Above the eagle, there are 13 stars.

    So what is the meaning behind the number 13 exactly? Some believe that the image holds some type of evil or satanic meaning, perhaps hinting at a goal of world domination.

    However, scholars believe that the obvious answer is the correct one: that the number 13 is representative of the 13 original colonies.

    The number 13 certainly is strongly represented on the bill. What do you think it means?

    The Eye


    And then, of course, we come to “the eye.” The eye at the top of the pyramid is hidden right in plain sight, but its meaning has been shrouded in mystery since it first appeared on the one dollar bill.

    The eye appears to be floating and emitting large rays of light. So what could this symbolize?

    Some argue that the eye represents the presence of God watching over America.

    Others believe that the symbol is much more conspiratorial in nature and that it is the “all-seeing eye” often utilized by the Freemasons. These theorists believe that our founding fathers were actual members of the Freemasons.

    While no one can know for sure, what do you think this floating eye represents? Is it the eye of God, or a Freemason symbol hidden in plain sight?


    The Roman Numeral


    If you look closely at the base of the pyramid, you’ll spot a very long series of letters: MDCCLXXVI. This “code” is actually not a secret at all, but has a logical explanation.

    MDCCLXXVI is actually a Roman numeral that stands for the number 1776. It would be quite difficult to read too much into that number, considering that 1776 is the year that America finally declared its independence.

    While some might wonder about its location at the base of the pyramid, the number certainly has a logical reason for appearing on the one-dollar bill.


    MDCCLXXVI isn’t quite the hidden mystery that some of these other secret gems are.


    The Cross


    If you look in the corners of the back side of the bill, you’ll be able to spot a very distinct cross or windmill-like shape behind the number “1.”

    We at Disclose.tv and many believe that this symbol is the shape known as the Maltese cross — which some believe to be a hidden reference to the famed Knights of Malta.

    These “Knights” date all the way back to the Middle Ages, and still remain active today. In 1798, an island fortress belonging to the Knights of Malta was captured by Napoleon, sending many of them fleeing to America.

    Could this symbol actually be the Maltese cross hidden on the back of our one-dollar bill?

    The Hindu God


    Again, you may need your magnifying glass for this one. But just to the right of the bottom left number “1,” there appears to be a figure with its hair in a bun.

    Many believe this to be a hidden depiction of the Hindu god known as Shiva. While it might seem hard to believe, conspiracy theorists believe that this is in fact Shiva, who is also known as “the Destroyer.”

    If you look closely, you can make out the figure in the webbing next to the “1.” As is traditional, this Hindu god appears to have its hair in a bun.

    What do you make of this hidden figure? Do you think it really is the Hindu god?The origins of the symbols on the American one-dollar bill still remain some of our country’s greatest mysteries.
