- Top Ten US Aid Recipients All Practice Torture (Project Censored, March 4, 2014):

The top ten recipients slated to receive US foreign assistance in 2014 all practice torture and are responsible for major human rights abuses, according to Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other major human rights organizations.

The violators and degree of aid they are expected to receive are: 1. Israel – $3.1bn, 2. Afghanistan – $2.2bn, 3. Egypt – $1.6bn, 4. Pakistan – $1.2bn, 5. Nigeria – $693m, 6. Jordan – $671m, 7. Iraq – $573m, 8. Kenya – $564m, 9. Tanzania – $553m, 10. Uganda -$456m

- ISIS’ Next Target: The Suez Canal (Zerohedge, Sep 14, 2014):

Following ISIS blitzkrieg in which it took over nearly half of Iraq and a third of Syria in the blink of an eye, at which point it created its own Islamic State Caliphate resulting in Obama’s own personal war against the jihadists, some have wondered what is ISIS’ next step: surely its leadership will not merely stagnatte as one after another US predator drone bomb away the capital Reqqa until ISIS figurehead leader al-Baghdadi is killed or gravely wounded. To be sure, the one thing ISIS, which stunned the world with the speed of its ascent, can not afford is to stand still.

So what is next on the strategic timeline for the Islamic State?

According to one source, Al Arabiya, which cites Egyptian experts, the answer is none other than the Suez Canal, and the country it is located in: Egypt. Continue reading »

FLASHBACK.

I thought this deserves to be reposted.

A MUST-SEE!!!

(This should be shown to all those sheeple that still believe that there could not possibly be a conspiracy by a power elite.)

Synopsis:

Secrets In Plain Sight is an awe inspiring exploration of great art, architecture, and urban design which skillfully unveils an unlikely intersection of geometry, politics, numerical philosophy, religious mysticism, new physics, music, astronomy, and world history.

Exploring key monuments and their positions in Egypt, Stonehenge, Jerusalem, Rome, Paris, London, Edinburgh, Washington DC, New York, and San Francisco brings to light a secret obsession shared by pharaohs, philosophers and kings; templars and freemasons; great artists and architects; popes and presidents, spanning the whole of recorded history up to the present time.

As the series of videos reveals how profound ancient knowledge inherited from Egypt has been encoded in units of measurement, in famous works of art, in the design of major buildings, in the layout of city streets and public spaces, and in the precise placement of obelisks and other important monuments upon the Earth, the viewer is led to perceive an elegant harmonic system linking the human body with the architectural, urban, planetary, solar, and galactic scales.

Description:

Chris Martenson, who holds a PhD in pathology and an MBA, contends 2008 was just a warm up to a much bigger calamity. Martenson says, “2008 was the shot across the bow, and that’s when our credit experiment broke, and we have been doing everything possible to paper over it since. . . . When you take real stuff out of the ground, you grow food, you take oil out of the ground, you process ore into steel, and you manufacture real things–that’s real wealth. The claims (such as stocks, bonds and currencies) have to be in proportion to the real wealth, and the claims have been growing and growing and growing for so long that they are way out of balance to the real stuff, and the real stuff isn’t growing like it used to. You can see that in the GDP numbers for the U.S. or the world at large. Growth is slowing, slowing, slowing, and the claims are getting larger and larger. This represents a huge and gigantic source of potential energy. There is a gap there and it’s going to get closed. Only one of two things are going to happen: (1) real stuff starts expanding like crazy, or (2) the claims get destroyed. That’s what we are talking about when we talk about a market crash. The claims get destroyed. People get wiped out. The people who don’t get ruined are people safely over in the real wealth already. If you own an unencumbered farm, if you own a productive asset, if you own gold or silver, or if you own your house outright, you are going to be vastly safer than . . . someone who is leveraged and hinged into this other system.”

Kerry ass

- John Kerry “Shocked And Humiliated” On First Day Of Middle-East Tour (ZeroHedge, June 23 ,2014):

John Kerry came, saw and as usual made a horse ass out of himself.

From last night:

Secretary of State John Kerry voiced strong U.S. support for Egypt’s new president and signaled that Washington will continue the flow of military aid in an American welcome of the post-coup government.

Mr. Kerry said that the U.S. had recently released $575 million in assistance for Egypt’s military and that he was confident 10 Apache helicopters would be delivered to Egypt soon. Continue reading »

- Netanyahu Orders Israel Army To Prepare For Possible Military Strike Against Iran In 2014

My commentary:

(First my apoogies for not proofreading my comment. Hope you can nevertheless understand what I want to tell you.)

Unlike stated in the video the elitists do have plans for WW3.

Keep in mind that I do not want you to get scared.

I just want to help you to get prepared spiritually, mentally and physically.

That’s all.

I know for a fact that … “life is an echo, what you send out comes back”.

And so I better be very careful what I am telling you.

Does WW3 really have to happen?

NO!

The question really is:

Will we allow it to happen???

( … like we have allowed the Patriot Act, the NDAA, all those (NWO) executive orders, GMOs, vaccines, water fluoridation, chemtrails, depleted uranium & genocide, food additives like Aspartame & MSG, Fukushima, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, deficit spending, quantitative easing and the greatest bank robbery in world history.)

If your answer to that question is that we will probably allow WW3 to happen, then I suggest you better prepare.

Many seers have seen very similar WW3 scenarios and the reason for that is that WW III is planned, which could cause all those normally infinite future timelines to collapse into a predictable future:

When you see civil war breaking out simultaneously in Germany, France and Italy (probably because of the financial/economic collapse), then we are getting very close to the beginning of WW3 as it has been predicted.

If you see Pope Francis (= Petrus Romanus) fleeing the Vatican and Italy, then the start of WW3 is very close.

Right before or better immediately before the outbreak of WW3 (by then it is too late to prepare yourself if you haven’t done so yet) there will be an assassination taking place of up to 3 people in leading positions (Could be Putin, Obama or …).

(Probably by then NATO has provoked the Russians ‘enough’, because then …)

The next thing those seers saw were Russian tanks running all over Europe, destroying everything in their path. 

The big fight will take place in Germany.

The Russians will be stopped and defeated (… probably with the help of a third power coming (back) right out of the Inner Earth?).

The beginning of the real earth changes will also put a sudden end to the fighting.

Shortly after the fighting has stopped the real earth changes will take place.

3 days of darkness are coming (asteroid impacts?), where you shouldn’t leave the house and better be in the safest and airtight place that you know of and have available to you.

Don’t go outside, don’t open the windows as the air outside will be deadly.

Water and food stored in safe rooms (metal shielded) should be safe, otherwise all food and water that is not stored in sealed metal containers will turn bad.

(Living near the ocean and at sea level is not the place you want to be. Also living next to steep mountansides is not a good idea.)

Why do I give credence to those seers?

Alois Irlmaier for example clearly foresaw smartphones and drones in a time when they did not exist.

He foresaw rising inflation, hyperinflation, the people getting taxed into oblivion and the collapse of the euro, when he couldn’t even possibly know that the euro was planned.

I myself have seen the future several times as it came to pass. So I know that it is possible to do these things.

One of my best friends grew up as a young child with a real master who taught his parents (his father being a bank manager!) and some other people. Among them several medical doctors.

A real master?

After my friends mother had a full abortion of her sixth child this master said that she has put the child back into the womb, because the child belongs to the family and the family belongs to this child.

The next months went by and my friends mum wasn’t sure if she really was pregnant.

Then at a birthday party that master was the one who felt the labour pains and sent my friends mum to the hospital.

Where she gave birth to a healthy girl.

This master could heal the sick instantly (but she also said in some cases that the disease was due to Karma and told them when it will go away and it did) and could manifest out of thin air.

Whenever she needed money she pulled a brandnew dollar note out of her pocket.

These are just some of so many, many stories that I’ve been told.

Here is why this is important …

Many, many years ago this master predicted that after the earth changes you can choose your land wherever you want to (because there are obviously not many humans left).

As young children she showed my friend and his brothers & sisters ‘her friends’ that are here to help us (unlike the ones our governments are currently dealing with) and he remembers that she took them outside during a starry night and the stars were moving like they were riding in a rollercoaster. She told them that this are UFO’s. My friends dad (the bank manager!) saw one of these UFOs landing in close proximity.

When studying acupuncture in China I came to know my good friend (from the other side of the planet) and got told all these wonderful stories from him and later also from his entire family.

Having already experienced some tiny, tiny miracles (in comparison) myself, I had no reason to doubt him, especially because there were several stories that pointed to her being the real deal.

When her students started getting attached to her she warned them, but when they did not listen she left them.

A real master will never allow people getting to attached to him, or even start to worship him, as he only wants to show them the way, helping to speed up their spiritual growth.

If then the students become too attached to the teacher the whole purpose for the master being there in the first place is lost …

… and so he has to go. Usually that’s the beginning of a new religion. When the truth is getting lost religion appears.

If all hell breaks loose and  you don’t know where to go and turn to, go inside and connect yourself to the source, the creator, God, your inner self or whatever you may want to call it.

Know you are protected, know you are eternal.

I do not pretend to know what will happen and when, but this master said that it will come like a thief in the night.

Hopefully we can find ways to avoid WW3 and to minimize the earth changes.

If you think all of this is comlete BS then why have the elitists built the Doomsday Seed Vault?

- Big Pharma profiteering gone wild: $1,000-a-pill Hepatitis drug in USA sells for less than $10 in Egypt (Natural News, March 26, 2014):

The financial raping of America by Big Pharma has just achieved a new milestone with the impending launch of a Hepatitis C drug that costs $1,000 a pill. If you’ve ever wondered why U.S. health care is so unaffordable and inaccessible — and why health insurance costs are bankrupting businesses and municipalities across the nation — this is exactly why. The same drug that sells for $1,000 a pill in the USA — named “Sovaldi” — sells for just $10 in Egypt, or 1/100th the USA price. Continue reading »

- Obama Accused of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ at International Criminal Court (FrontPage Magazine, Nov 8, 2013):

According to Egyptian newspaper El Watan, a group of Egyptian lawyers has submitted a complaint charging U.S. president Barrack Hussein Obama with crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.The complaint charges Obama of being an accessory to the Muslim Brotherhood, which incited widespread violence in Egypt both before and after the June 30 Revolution.

Along with Obama, the complaint reproduced by El Watan mentions several Brotherhood members by name, beginning with the leader of the organization Muhammad Badie, and other top ranking leaders such as Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian, and Safwat Hegazi, adding that “Obama cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes against humanity in the period from 3/7/2013-8/18/2013, in the Arab Republic of Egypt.”

According to the published text, the complaint begins by quoting Article 7/1 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court, titled “Crimes against humanity,” which is reproduced below: Continue reading »

- Don’t Show Obama This Report About Who Really Is Behind The Syrian Chemical Attacks (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2013):

As we showed mere days ago, it appears the truth of who the real puppet-master in the Middle-East is becoming plainer to see. The incredibly frank discussion between Saudi’s spy-chief Prince Bandar and Russia’s Putin exposed a much deeper plot is afoot and the following details from the actual people on the ground in the chemically-attacked region of Syria suggest Obama is playing right into the Saudi’s plan. While Obama is ‘certain’ that the chemical attacks took place on al-Assad’s orders, as MPN reports, “from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.”

The narrative for public consumption is well-known and quite clear – it was all as-Assad’s fault. And yet… Continue reading »

- White House Criticizes Egypt’s Arrest Of Muslim Brotherhood Leader Mo Badie (ZeroHedge, Aug 20, 2013):

And now for some early afternoon humor. It turns out the US is unhappy with the non-coupy military leaders in Egypt for arresting the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood (whose name is Mo Badie) because, according to White House spokesman John Earnest, the action “does not reflect Egypt’s commitment to an inclusive political process.” Maybe the US really does believe there was no coup in Egypt, and that the current military leaders actually do care about an inclusive political process. Otherwise, this statement is about as profound as the UK government busting up the Guardian’s hard disks in hopes of destroying Snowden evidence.

From AFP:

The United States on Tuesday criticized the arrest of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badie in Egypt.

Bloody violence has continued today as Egyptian security officials say suspected militants have ambushed two police minibuses in northern Sinai, firing rocket-propelled grenades at the vehicles.

The attack is believed to have been carried out as the two vehicles were driving through a village near the border town of Rafah in the volatile Sinai Peninsula, located in the strategic region bordering the Gaza Strip and Israel.

- Egypt Military Prepares To Crush Islamist March Of Millions “Day Of Rage” (ZeroHedge, Aug 16, 2013):

If there is one day when the pent up tensions on both sides resulting from the Egyptian coup over a month ago may boil over and lead to an all out civil war (still unclear how John Kerry would “define” that one) today may be that day, as Cairo is braced for what may be the most violent confrontations yet with supporters of the deposed president Mursi calling for “day of rage” protests after Friday prayers, and the Egyptian polic (now using live ammo) and army set to crush any such “illegal” protests. Since millions are set to hit the streets, there is no way this will have a peaceful outcome.

CNN reports:

As Egypt faces the gruesome aftermath of clashes that left hundreds dead, demonstrators plan to defy an emergency order and take to the streets to mark “Friday of anger.”

The Muslim Brotherhood promised huge protests, and Egypt’s military government showed no sign of easing its crackdown, setting the stage for what could become another catastrophic encounter of security forces and protesters.

- Egypt Is Descending Into Civil War, But Don’t Expect Obama To Cancel His Golf Vacation (Economic Collapse, Aug 15, 2013):

The largest Islamic nation in the Middle East is on the verge of descending into civil war, the Syrian civil war is starting to spill over into Lebanon, and the worst violence in five years has just hit Iraq, but Barack Obama is way too busy to be bothered with any of that.  Right now, Obama is enjoying one of the true loves of his life – golf.  According to the Washington Post, Obama has “played 18 holes of golf every day but one this week”, and without a doubt he appears to really be enjoying his time up in Martha’s Vineyard.  I hear that it is absolutely beautiful up there this time of the year.  And apparently he needs the rest.  After all, prior to this vacation he has only had time to play 133 rounds of golf since becoming president.  Between snubbing world leaders and getting the U.S. economy going again, it must be really tough for Obama to find enough time to sharpen his game.Of course I am being facetious.  It is absolutely ridiculous how much time Obama takes off, and Congress is even worse.  Congress is taking a five week vacation right now.  Most Americans don’t get that much vacation in an entire year.

Meanwhile, as our leaders enjoy their rest, the Middle East is coming apart at the seams. Continue reading »

Those damn Egyptians are so inconsiderate: first they non-coup just when John Kerry is busy honing his sailing skills. Now, the non-coupy country breaks out in civil war just as Obama is on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. Well, Egypt may be important enough to serve as a middleman when the US pays Lockheed Martin using Egypt as a dumb intermediary, but is obviously not important enough for Obama to cancel his vacation. Moments ago in an audio-only presentation (couldn’t russle enough Martha’s Vineyardians for the podium behind him? Were his sleeves rolled up? Was he reading from paper or a teleprompter? The people demand to know), Obama joined Kerry in “strongly condemning” the violence that according to some has already spilled over into all out civil war.

- Death toll from Egypt violence rises to 525 (Los Angeles, Aug 15, 2013):

CAIRO — Egyptian authorities on Thursday significantly raised the death toll from clashes the previous day between police and supporters of the ousted Islamist president, saying more than 500 people died and laying bare the extent of the violence that swept much of the country and prompted the government to declare a nationwide state of emergency and a nighttime curfew.

The death toll, which stood at 525, according to the latest Health Ministry figures, makes Wednesday by far the deadliest day since the 2011 popular uprising that toppled longtime ruler and autocrat Hosni Mubarak — a grim milestone that does not bode well for the future of a nation roiled in turmoil and divisions for the past 2 1/2  years.

Health Ministry spokesman Khaled el-Khateeb put the number of the injured on Wednesday at 3,717.

- Is Egypt On The Verge Of Engineered Civil War? (ALT-MARKET, Aug 2, 2013):

For thousands of years, Egypt has been one of the primary pillars of the Eastern world. When Egypt falls into turmoil, a shockwave is felt by all other nations that heralds great change and perhaps even great catastrophe. The West’s longtime interest in maintaining a solid foothold in Egypt is based on this reality; even in our modern age, when Egypt is in your corner riches can be accumulated, and power can be gathered.

Our government along with European governments have gone to incredible lengths in the region in order to ensure Egyptian compliance. In the 1940’s and 1950’s, Britain sought to dominate the country through force of arms. The U.S. set out to buy Egypt with massive foreign aid as well as military subsidies for leaders that held pro-western views. However, it appears that in the quest for “globalization”, western interests now see a destabilized and violent Egypt as more useful to the grand plan. The Egyptian revolution in 2011 which highlighted what many call the “Arab Spring” was heavily manipulated by U.S. and European governments, but such sociopolitical engineering is still limited to the whims of the target population.

No one can create a revolution or civil war out of thin air. Years or even decades of popular angst and anger has to be fostered. The citizenry must already be near the tipping point of mass dissent. Globalists do not make revolutions occur, they simply find a revolution already brewing, and then attempt to direct the preexisting energy of the populace towards an end result that benefits the establishment the most.

Egypt is now ripe for internal conflict far beyond civil disobedience into the realm of Syrian-style civil war, and I believe our government is well aware that such a calamity is brewing…

- Egypt After Morsi (ZeroHedge, July 28, 2013):

With the bloodiest weekend since the ouster of Mubarak, it seems the supposed coup-less people’s revolution appears to be edging ever closer to civil war. Egypt lies at the heart of the Arab revolution, even if the original spark occurred in Tunisia. But Egypt – with its strategic location, stable borders, large population, and ancient history – has been the principal power of the Arab world for centuries, defining the movement of history there like no other. This implies that the overthrow of Egypt’s democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, will have much broader repercussions. Europe’s bloody revolutions of the 19th century changed the status quo forever and while the Arab world might not be so deeply affected, the near future there will certainly be neither peaceful nor stable.

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood on Tuesday rejected a new timetable announced by the military-backed interim leadership that sets a fast track for amending the Islamist-drafted constitution and holding new parliamentary and presidential elections by early next year.

The quick issuing of the transition plan showed how Egypt’s new leadership is shrugging off Islamists’ vows to reverse the military’s ousting of President Mohammed Morsi and wants to quickly entrench a post-Morsi political system.
