Is an age at an end?

Benedict

Mere technical claptrap or the straight story at last? You tell me.

  1. Why was the late, great Roman Pope John Paul II beatified (i.e. declared “Blessed John Paul” by the reigning pope, namely by Roman Pope Benedict XVI) on “May Day”?
  2. Why thirteen (13) days between Benedict XVI’s abdication and Francis’s elevation?
    (as there had been, for example, between the U.S.S.R.’s dissolution and the C.I.S.’s establishment)?
  3. And where do the Vatican’s own “Saint” Malachy’s prophecies figure?
  4. How about Thelema and Aleister Crowley?

In a nitty-gritty look at Twentieth-Century sacerdotal¹-papal²-regal rule, User MHFM1 (video below) points out that heaven double-struck³ Saint Peter’s Basilica’s cupula⁴ the same day on which Pope Benedict XVI had abdicated, which was also the same date (11 February 2012) as the 1929 Lateran Treaty (between the Roman Catholic Magisterium and the Italian Government) established papal² kingship, Benedict being the last Tridentinely ordained priest to hold papal office. Since Benedict was the seventh (and by the “Old Order”⁵ the last!) priest-king of the Vatican City-State, all of this seems suggestive of the “seven kings” of the Apocalypse/Revelation. (Or not. For context, recall that in the itemization of the Church’s Canon of Scripture [that is, the Table of Contents of Holy Writ or “The {Holy} Bible”] at the First Ecumenical Council, which was held at Nicæa in present-day Turkey, it was the Old Rome that insisted on including the book known as the Apocalypse (or Revelation) of Saint John, to which Constantinople capitulated in exchange for the Acts of the Apostles.)

(I hope I’ve encapsulated any substance contained in the needlessly hour-long video below [which in its supposedly monastic polemicism tries to make Roman Pope John Paul II and not Benedict XVI the antichrist in spite of the diagram pictured above] so you don’t have to take the Dimondesque propaganda as a temple tax for getting the “fun facts.”)


________
¹ Sacerdotal means priestly.
² Papal means popish, i.e. of or relating to popes.
³ I gotta say, with this twofold lightning thing, Benedict XVI may never shed that Emperor Palpatine image!
⁴ A cupula is a dome.
⁵ In 1968 Old Rome, or specifically the Vatican, closed out its second-ever pan-occidental “ecumenical” (meaning church-wide, not to be confused with ecumenist or ecumenism) council (“Vatican II,” “Vatican I” having been held ca. 1869), one leg of whose threefold order of business had been to reform the erstwhile Tridentine (i.e. of the Council of Trent) Liturgy (basically known to Roman Catholics as “The Latin Mass,” famous for its incense and its still somewhat historic Christian nature), the Tridentine ritual model itself being a Reformation-Era (some would say “Deformation-Era”) “reform” of the Divine Liturgy of Our Father Among the Saints Gregory the Great (Pope of Rome). This liturgical coreography (or missal from missa [as in Ite, missa est meaning Go, she {or it} is sent] whence Mass⁶) that the 60s Second Vatican Council scripted was christened Novus Ordo or New Order, giving rise to many and sundry theories linking it to global governance ideologies (and conspiracies), institutionalized in the F.D.R.-to-present US$1 bill’s pyramidal “Novus Ordo Seclorum” (we presume a Mason’s misspelling of sæculorum) slogan, always interpreted as New World Order [seclorum/sæculorum is a genetive {i.e. possessive} plural capable of meaning either of the worlds or more commonly of the ages, hence New Age Order seems a truer rendering of the globalist intelligentsia’s meaning]) as well as to George H.W. Bush’s subsequent “Thousand Points of Light” speech in which he describes what is presumably the C.I.A.’s vision for a “new world order.”
⁶ From the Etymology Dictionary etymonline.com: “‘Eucharistic service,’ Old English mæsse, from Vulgar Latin messa ‘eucharistic service,’ literally ‘dismissal,’ from Late Latin missa ‘dismissal,’ fem. past participle of mittere ‘to let go, send’ (see mission); probably so called from the concluding words of the service, Ite, missa est, ‘Go, (the prayer) has been sent,’ or ‘Go, it is the dismissal.'”

Biography:

Karen Hudes studied law at Yale Law School and economics at the University of Amsterdam. She worked in the US Export Import Bank of the US from 1980-1985 and in the Legal Department of the World Bank from 1986-2007. She established the Non Governmental Organization Committee of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association and the Committee on Multilateralism and the Accountability of International Organizations of the American Branch of the International Law Association.

In 2007 Karen warned the US Treasury Department and US Congress that the US would lose its right to appoint the President of the World Bank if the current American President of the World Bank did not play by the rules. The 66 year old Gentlemen’s Agreement that Europe would appoint the Managing Director of the IMF and US would appoint the World Bank President ended in 2010.

Bank Corruption

Date: 05-25-13
Host: John B. Wells
Guests: Karen Hudes

Joining John B. Wells, former World Bank attorney and whistleblower Karen Hudestalked about how she uncovered corruption in the World Bank.

Who is Karen Hudes?

Karen Hudes studied law at Yale Law School and economics at the University of Amsterdam. She worked in the US Export Import Bank of the US from 1980-1985 and in the Legal Department of the World Bank from 1986-2007. She established the Non Governmental Organization Committee of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association and the Committee on Multilateralism and the Accountability of International Organizations of the American Branch of the International Law Association.

What did Karen Hudes blow the whistle on?

In 2007 Karen warned the US Treasury Department and US Congress that the US would lose its right to appoint the President of the World Bank if the current American President of the World Bank did not play by the rules. The 66 year old Gentlemen’s Agreement that Europe would appoint the Managing Director of the IMF and US would appoint the World Bank President ended in 2010http://www.imf.org/external/np/cm/2010/042510.htm

In 1999 Karen reported the corrupt take-over of the second largest bank in the Philippines. Lucio Tan, a crony of Joseph Estrada, then President of the Philippines, acquired stock owned by government employees in Philippines National Bank (“PNB”) valued more than 10% of PNB’s outstanding capital without disclosure, as required by Philippines securities laws. Tan owned Philippines Airlines, in default on its loans from PNB. The government of the Philippines loaned $493 million to PNB after PNB’s depositors made heavy withdrawals. $200 million of a loan from the World Bank and a $200 million loan from Japan were cancelled. Estrada was ultimately impeached, and in 2007 an anti-corruption court in the Philippines required Estrada to refund graft he had plundered. The Bank’s Country Director in the Philippines reassigned Karen when she asked him to sign a letter warning the Philippines’ government that the Bank could not disburse its loan without a waiver from the Board of Executive Directors since the loan conditionality was not met. The World Bank’s Internal Audit Department refused to correct the satisfactory evaluation of the Bank’s supervision performance or the flawed report of the Institutional Integrity Department to the Audit Committee of the Board of Executive Directors. When the Audit Committee requested an audit of internal controls over financial reporting, KPMG, the external auditors, circumscribed the scope of their audit in violation of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and Generally Accepted Auditing Standards.

Two days after informing the Board’s Audit Committee of the cover-up in the Philippines, Karen was reprimanded and placed on probation. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs requested the World Bank’s Audit Committee to look into the cover- up. Instead, the Chair of the World Bank’s Audit Committee requested an inquiry into the World Bank’s Institutional Integrity Department. The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations followed up with three letters to the World Bank. The World Bank forged documents and fired Karen in contempt of Congress. The World Bank also fired the Staff Association’s lawyer. The Staff Association stated that what had happened to Karen had damaged staff morale and prevented others from reporting misconduct. The World Bank’s Ethics’ Officer left in frustration after her request for an investigation by the World Bank’s Institutional Integrity Department was turned down.

Mr. Paul Volcker headed the 2007 inquiry into the Institutional Integrity Department. The Volcker Panel was discredited after sixteen staff employed in the Institutional Integrity Department received significant damage awards in compensation for abuses of authority to intimidate them during the Volker Panel investigation. A staff-member of the EU’s anti-fraud agency, Office Lutte Anti-Fraude, on the Volcker Panel wrote to Karen:
“My Director General and I met with a number of European Executive Directors of the World Bank a few weeks ago to discuss the Volcker Panel report. At the meeting there was also discussion about governance issues. My impression was that the European Executive Directors are well apprised of all relevant issues at the Bank and no further comment by OLAF is warranted even if it was within our legal competence.”

Karen informed Senator Bayh, “[t]he ongoing cover-up is an indictment of the probity of US oversight at the Bank and I would encourage the Senate to request GAO to look into it.” Senators Richard Lugar, Evan Bayh and Patrick Leahy requested GAO to investigate “internal resistance to increased transparency and accountability at the World Bank.” http://citizenoversight.com/pdf/blwb.pdf In 2008 Karen’s Congressman, Representative Chris Van Hollen, noted “that [Karen’s] claims and concerns have already been provided to the GAO…. and to the relevant congressional committees.” In 2009 GAO stated that it could not commence the inquiry “because of challenges we recently faced in gaining access to World Bank officials.” Senator Lugar asked what was delaying the GAO review during hearings on the World Bank’s capital increase.

Mr. Pieter Stek, then Executive Director for the Netherlands, and Chair of the Board Committee on Development Effectiveness, said:
“In a multilateral institution which should be governed by the rule of law and high standards of probity the charge of concealment from the Board of Executive Directors of information relevant to the exercise of its duty of supervising management and the persecution of the person who brings this to light is extremely serious. If correct, which I believe, this poisonous cocktail undermines good governance and ultimately the effectiveness of the Bank in fulfilling its mandate. I shall continue to assist Ms. Hudes in her efforts to have due process brought to bear, preferably by the Bank itself, on these issues of governance.”

David Brooks wrote:
“Then there are violations, when someone intentionally breaks the rules. Errors can be very hard for outsiders to detect. It was people inside the companies who were most likely to report fraud, because they have local knowledge. And yet 80 percent of these whistleblowers regret having reported the crimes because of the negative consequences they suffered. This is not the way to treat people who detect error.” http://brooks.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/06/13/living-with-mistakes/?comments#permid=34

Mario Cuomo Isn’t Your Daddy

Borrowed from the New Oxford Review:

“To call a modern nation-state a family, in the interest of connecting us to one another, should be faulted because it transforms citizens into Big Children.”

by Jean Bethke Elshtain, December, 1996

Democracy’s Discontent: America in Search of a Public Philosophy.  By Michael Sandel. Harvard University Press. 417 pages. $24.95.

Michael Sandel has written a challenging book, which argues that the prevailing political agenda leaves too many people in limbo. He is on target in tying their anxiety to “the loss of self-government and the erosion of community.” But where did self-government historically come from in the United States? What were the sites of civic formation? For most — and Tocqueville hits this one squarely on the head — it was congregations, “intense sectarian commitments,” and they helped fuel the penchant for political liberty. Sandel pays too little attention to the religious sources of American democracy.

Sandel’s account of the forces that changed the scope, shape, and scale of American life forever is compelling but incomplete. He stresses the political-economic dimensions of this process, emphasizing the shift from a producer-based economy to a consumer-based one. If Sandel is right that a consumer culture doesn’t cultivate the “qualities of character necessary to self-government,” then we are in rather big trouble. And there is trouble aplenty in Democracy’s Discontent. One basic and seemingly insurmountable dilemma is that the source of many political-economic troubles lies beyond the purview of national governments. If one follows this line of thinking, it leads to the conclusion that we must have some kind of world government. Such a “solution” is not only implausible, it is unacceptable for a variety of political and moral reasons. How could civic formation possibly proceed if it is cast on such an immense scale that individual human beings, from their concrete places and sites, cannot really attach themselves to it? If Sandel’s procedural republic “cannot secure the liberty it promises because it cannot inspire the moral and civic engagement self-government requires,” the trouble is compounded many times over as one moves to structures beyond nation-states. If a kind of mega-republic is the only “solution” to at least some of our woes, we are in the soup. For the structures that cultivate civic virtues — including possibilities for solidarity (or solidarities) — are the many associations of civil society. Restoring robustness to these formative institutions, or some version of them, is the way to chasten the consumer identity and the chimera of the sovereign self. If this does not happen, we will see ever greater concentrations of power even more comprehensively change citizens into consumers.

Given the sheer complexity and scope of the problem, Sandel’s short list of exemplary civic efforts seems too little, too late. Community development corporations, fights against mega-malls, and community organizing are discussed briefly. Certainly one applauds such efforts, but these pages in Sandel’s book are a let-down, in part because it’s difficult to extend the civic purview of the efforts Sandel notes beyond certain reasonable limits. In calling them “mediating institutions,” as Sandel does, as do we all, a question occurs: What exactly are they mediating? Mediation means connecting together somehow. It is far easier to see the points of mediation between congregations and town meetings — both local — or between town meetings and, say, state government than it is to see how local associations can forge connections to government beyond the local or perhaps state level.

Sandel notes Mario Cuomo’s metaphor of the nation as a family at the Democratic national convention in 1984. Let’s grant the decent intent behind the turn to familial metaphors. But to call a modern nation-state a family, in the interest of connecting us to one another, should be faulted because it too easily transforms citizens into Big Children. Government, in this scenario, becomes a benevolent, sometimes chiding caretaker and protector. The consumer identity Sandel laments has gone hand-in-hand with a therapeutic mentality that sees us all as needy and dysfunctional, whether we know it or not. Look at how cuddly and caring both parties tried to appear at their recent conventions. We long ago crossed the line demarcating the appropriate display of compassion and human complexity in public settings and have descended instead into bathos.

What we are seeing in this childmindedness, this domestication of political imagery, is the reversal of the old standard in loco parentis. That rule was straightforward. For those not yet fully adult, other adults (or, as the law would have it, the state) played the temporary role of guardians, arbiters, and perhaps disciplinarians. The situation now is almost completely reversed — parents are to follow the therapy-state’s tutelage, or they are bad parents. In the areas of mental health, sexuality, and values, we are all at sea, it seems, until others have clarified matters for us. Because children, by definition, are not citizens, the deepening depiction of us as kids in a big family depletes citizenship, undermines legitimate democratic authority — which relies on the idea that people grow up and can be held accountable — and ultimately demeans us all.

What this adds up to is that Sandel should have paid more attention to the cultural forces at work undermining our identity as citizens.

Rapper Cammy Dee facing terrorism charges and 20 years in prison for writing a rap song that he posted on Facebook!

After you read this kid’s story, you’ll think twice about what you post on Facebook. (And that’s the problem.)

Meet Cameron D'Ambrosio. He's 18 and lives in a small town outside Boston. He wants to be a rapper and calls himself "Cammy Dee" in his YouTube videos.

Cammy Dee Facebook Fan Page:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cameron-DAmbrosio-Cammy-Dee/185660831590087

Meet Cameron D’Ambrosio. He’s 18 and lives in a small town outside Boston. He wants to be a rapper and calls himself “Cammy Dee” in his YouTube videos.

Oh, and he’s been locked up without bail for weeks — facing terrorism charges and 20 years in prison — all for something he posted on Facebook.

On May 1st, Cam was skipping school and messing around online. He posted some lyrics that included a vague reference to the Boston Marathon Bombing and called the Whitehouse a “federal house of horror.” Shortly after that he was arrested and charged with Communicating a Terrorist Threat, a felony that carries 20 years in prison.

The post contained no specific threat of violence against any person or group of people, and in the context of the rest of the lyrics and Cams’ rap persona, it was clearly nothing more than a metaphor. A search of Cam’s house found NO evidence that he was planning any violence, but a judge still ordered him held without bail for the next 3 months, pending trial.

Held without bail? For writing a rap song?

A search of Cam’s house found no explosives, weapons, or ANY evidence that he was planning anything other than becoming the next Eminem.

Take a minute to watch the video of one of Cam’s songs to the left, and decide for yourself whether you think he’s a threat to public safety, or just a teenager speaking his mind.

Cam is locked up right now and he needs your help. Civil liberties groups haven’t jumped in to help. The judge has shown severe bias already. Cam’s best shot at justice is to make sure that Authorities in this small town know that the rest of the country is watching, and that we won’t let them set a precedent of arresting teenagers for angsty lyrics.

Slim chance of a fair trial.

It’s not a surprise that the judge in the case felt pressure to come down hard on Cam, since the local media has been quick to sensationalize the story and demonize a harmless teenager.

Before charges were even formally filed, local newspapers were already posting pictures from Cam’s facebook and pointing to “disturbing” posts like “Fuck politics. Fuck Obama. Fuck the government!” and “satanic” imagery (like some image from a metal band’s poster.) All of this is free speech that is 100% protected by the 1st Amendment.

But Fox News went so far as to say that Cam’s facebook profile had images that they “couldn’t show on TV.” They and other media outlets frequently and intentionally printed only a small section of the lyrics that Cam was arrested for allegedly writing, and took them out of context to make rap metaphors sound like a real threat.

The media printed:

“(Expletive) a boston bominb wait till u see the (expletive) I do, I’ma be famous”

The actual line is:

“(Expletive) a boston bominb wait till u see the (expletive) I do, I’ma be famous rapping”

Notice something? The context completely changes the meaning of the line. Suddenly something that sounds like a threat of violence is clearly just bragging about how good Cammy Dee is going to be in the rap game. Last we checked, teenage dreams of grandeur were not a crime.

Here’s the full text according to techdirt of the lyrics Cam posted that are in question.

Massachusetts Law is pretty clear about what constitutes a “terroristic threat”. The statement has to claim that there is a weapon or a bomb, and/or threaten a specific place or location with the intent of causing disruption. Cam comparing his rap aspirations with the amount of media coverage tragedy in Boston got doesn’t even come close.

The Methuen Chief of Police even stated: “I do want to make clear he did not make a specific threat against the school or any particular individuals…”

Cam should be released immediately unless the D.A. can produce some additional evidence as to why he is a threat to anyone.

Cam may not be your favorite rapper. You may not like anything he has to say. But what’s important here is that we defend our right to speak our mind online without fear of the government coming down on us. Methuen is a small town, but if we get them to drop this case, it would be a big victory for free speech. Make sure you sign the petition, and then use the sharing buttons to spread the word to everyone you know.

‘Truther’ radio jock stirs outrage with shocking proclamation Pete Santilli also said he believes President Obama should be shot over Benghazi scandal.

After reading this article that was sent to us by one of our faithful members and supporters sent me this article

  • Today!  
  •  12:10pm 
  • Jan Johnson
  • I happen to agree that something has to be done with those who commit  Treason It is not Sedition to want those in power who have commited Treason Against the United States to have to pay for the high crimes they have committed.  It is not a crime to want justice for the American people or for Seal team Six, if in fact it turns out to be true what this talk show host is saying about any of these allegations against the President and Hillary Clinton.  The punishment should fit the crime according to our Laws of the Constitution.  

  • The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
  • According to the Constitution, punishment can be set by Congress, but not to include corruption of blood or forfeiture extending beyond the offender’s life. Quite apart from this limitation, Justice Joseph Story notes the explicit grant of congressional power over punishment was intended as a leniency, to preclude the assumption of the common-law punishment’s harshest elements. The First Congress used its constitutional power of declaring the punishment for treason by establishing the penalty of death, with seven years’ imprisonment for misprision of treason.
  • The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
    Sedition is inciting civil unrest or insurrection, or undermining the government.
    In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s sovereign or nation. Historically, treason also covered the murder of specific social superiors, such as the murder of a husband by his wife or that of a master by his servant or slave. Treason against the king was known as high treason and treason against a lesser superior was petty treason. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.   Oran’s Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as “…[a]…citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].” In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aiding or involved by such an endeavor.what the guy has to say 
  •  

By Section 110 of Article III. of the Constitution of the United States, it is declared that:

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open Court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason.”

In 1790, the Congress of the United States enacted that:

“If any person or persons, owing allegiance to the United States of America, shall levy war against them, or shall adhere to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States, or elsewhere, and shall be thereof convicted on confession in open Court, or on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act of the treason whereof he or they shall stand indicted, such person or persons shall be adjudged guilty of treason against the United States, and SHALL SUFFER DEATH; and that if any person or persons, having knowledge of the commission of any of the treasons aforesaid, shall conceal, and not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President of the United States, or some one of the Judges thereof, or to the President or Governor of a particular State, or some one of the Judges or Justices thereof, such person or persons, on conviction, shall be adjudged guilty of misprision of treason, and shall be imprisoned not exceeding seven years, and fined not exceeding one thousand dollars.”

JAMES MADISON in the 43d number of the Federalist says:

“As treason may be committed against the United States the authority of the United States ought to be enabled to punish it: but as new tangled and artificial treasons have been the great engines by which violent factions, the natural offspring of free governments, have usually wreaked their alternate malignity on each other, the Convention has with great judgment opposed a barrier to this peculiar danger by inserting a Constitutional definition of the crime.”

The Constitution confines the crime of treason to two species; First, the levying of war against the United States; and Secondly, adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. In so doing the very words of the Statute of Treason of EDWARD the THIRD were adopted; and thus the framers of the Constitution recognized the well settled interpretation of these phrases in the administration of criminal law which has prevailed for centuries in England.

Treason, according to Lord COKK, is derived from trahir, signifying to betray; and trahison, by contraction, treason, is the betraying itself.

In England, high treason can only be committed against the KING, for the oath of allegiance is to the KING alone, as the only supreme Governor — he has no partners in the supremacy.

‘I want to shoot Hillary Clinton in the genitals’: Right wing radio jock stirs outrage with shocking proclamation

  • Self-proclaimed ‘truther’ Pete Santilli also said he believes President Obama should be shot over Benghazi scandal

PUBLISHED: 20:33 EST, 18 May 2013 | UPDATED: 21:12 EST, 18 May 2013

The host of a right wing radio show with a dislike for Hillary Clinton wants to take out his grudge by shooting her in the vagina.

Pete Santilli isn’t extremely well known, nor are his ideas mainstream, but he’s managed to get some rather big names on his radio show of late. Recent guests on the internet-based show including NRA board member Ted Nugent and Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt and have lent some heightened visibility to Santilli’s homespun show.

Now the conspiracy theorist has really doubled down on increasing his name recognition, though it may not be in the wisest way.

Low blow: Conspiracy theorist and host of a right wing internet broadcast Pete Santilli said last week he wants to ‘shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina.’

While discussing the Benghazi scandal, an enraged Santilli said he wanted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to pay for ‘all the Americans [she’s] killed.’

‘I want to shoot her right in the vagina,’ Santilli said last week. ‘On behalf of all of those people, I’m supporting our troops by saying we need to try, convict, and shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina.’

The shocking comment apparently stems from the host’s belief that the Obama administration faked the Osama bin Laden capture.

‘On behalf of all Americans that you’ve killed,’ he said, ‘on behalf of the Navy SEALS, the families of Navy SEAL Team Six who were involved in the fake hunt down of this Obama, Obama bin Laden thing, that whole fake scenario, because these Navy SEALS know the truth, they killed them all.’

Shock jock: Santilli believes Clinton, along with Obama, allowed Americans to die and deserve to be shot for treason–in the genitals in Clinton’s case

But Santilli didn’t reserve his wraith for Clinton. He also had words for the president himself and warned listeners that those who disagreed shall be deemed un-American.

‘Barack Obama needs to be tried, convicted, and shot for crimes against the United States of America,’ he said. ‘And if anybody has a problem with that, then you are an enemy of our state.’

The host’s rants aren’t reserved for Democrats, though. On the same show, he called for the Bush family to be shot for treason.

Though his recent words are decidedly uncouth, they are a far cry from the most unbelievable comments he’s made.

Bold: Santilli’s show is available only online, but he says he is willing to go national if the FCC ‘can handle my truth & honesty’

Santilli posted an article on his website in December that mapped out his belief the Sandy Hook massacre was a Satanic human sacrifice that was based on rituals seen in the most recent Batman film and further proven by the elementary school’s central location between Stonehenge and the Aztec Pyramid of the Sun.

Santilli also espouses beliefs that high tech energy beams are what took down the Twin Towers on 9/11 and that George H.W. Bush and ‘his cronies’ orchestrated the JFK assassination, among other theories.

On his site, Santilli says he’s prepared to take his truther message and unusual ideas to a national audience, if the audience is ready for him.

‘I am a radio talkshow host ready to take my show to national syndication,’ he writes. ‘That is, of course, if the FCC regulated AM/FM radio stations can handle my truth & honesty.’

New Study Shows, Smoking Marijuana Causes ‘Complete Remission’ of Crohn’s Disease, No Side Effects

  1. I know a few people who have this but bet they will still not listen to alternative News or idea’s and remain sick or die in pain. Iv seen this happen before why are people so brainwashed by the system that lies all the time? Wake up people and be free from death and pain.

    Smoking Marijuana Causes ‘Complete Remission’ of Crohn’s Disease, No Side Effects, New Study Shows

    Posted on May 14, 2013 at 9:38 am by David Downs in featured, Health

    Marijuana – scientific name “cannabis” – performed like a champ in the first-ever placebo-controlled trial of the drug to treat Crohn’s Disease, also known as inflammatory bowel disease.

    The disease of the digestive tract afflicts 400,000 – 600,000 people in North America alone causing abdominal pain, diarrhea (which can be bloody), severe vomiting, weight loss, as well as secondary skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, tiredness, and lack of concentration.

    Smoking pot caused a “complete remission” of Crohn’s disease compared to placebo in half the patients who lit up for eight weeks, according to clinical trial data to be published the journal Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

    Researchers at Israel’s Meir Medical Center took 21 people with intractable, severe Crohn’s disease and gave 11 of them two joints a day for eight weeks. “The standardized cannabis cigarettes” contained 23 percent THC and 0.5 percent CBD (cannabidiol). (Such marijuana is available on dispensary shelves in San Francisco, Oakland, and other cities that have regulated access to the drug.) The other ten subjects smoked placebo cigarettes containing no active cannabinoids.

    Investigators reported that smoking weed caused a “complete remission” of Crohn’s Disease in five of the 11 subjects. Another five of the eleven test subjects saw their Crohn’s Disease symptoms cut in half. Furthermore, “subjects receiving cannabis reported improved appetite and sleep, with no significant side effects.”

    The study is the first placebo-controlled clinical trial to assess the consumption of cannabis for the treatment of Crohn’s, notes NORML. All of the patients had intractable forms of the disease and did not respond to conventional treatments. Still, the United States government claims that marijuana is as dangerous as heroin and has no medical use. U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag is waging a war on safe access to medical cannabis in the Bay Area.

 

Hidden Message From God Found Inside DNA Sequence

Message From God Found Hidden Inside DNA Sequence

Feb. 01, 2013

imagesResearchers at Harvard University announced today that they have found what appears to be a message from God written inside the human genome.

In a little-explored section of non-coding DNA, a team of top geneticists discovered a 22-word snippet of ancient Aramaic in which God confirms his existence and his role in creating life on Earth.

The stunning finding represents nearly irrefutable evidence of God‘s existence and his role in creating the process of evolution by natural selection.

The message was discovered when researchers noticed strange mathematical patterns appearing within a certain section of the genome.

For Heaven’s Sake

“We knew the patterns weren’t naturally occurring,” explains Charles Watson, the lead scientist on the project, “but we couldn’t come up with any convincing explanation for them.

“On a whim, we started cross referencing the patterns with language databases,” he explains, “and we were shocked to find that the patterns corresponded to ancient Aramaic.”

Stunned by its discovery, the team contacted language experts familiar with Aramaic – the language Jesus Christ spoke in daily life.

Entirely decoded, the message reads: “Hello my children. This is Yahweh, the one true Lord. You have found creation’s secret. Now share it peacefully with the world.”

Yahweh is the biblical name for the Judeo-Christian god.

Inherit The Earth

The findings will be published in the journal Nature next month, and are expected to provoke the biggest scientific controversy since Charles Darwin published his theory of natural selection in 1859.

“This doesn’t mean that the theory of evolution is wrong,” says Watson. “It’s just incomplete. It seems that in reality the Judeo-Christian god actually started the whole process.

“And instead of just telling us about natural selection, he left a hidden signature that we could find 200,000 years later when we invented the right technology. It makes total sense really.

“Before this discovery I was a committed atheist. Now I’m a devout Christian. This is exactly the kind of proof I needed to ease my doubts.”

In addition to its profound impact on science, the news is set to revolutionize the world of comparative religion.

“I think the message clearly indicates that God wants us to co-exist peacefully with our fellow human beings,” says Janice Taylor, a bishop in the Anglican Church.

However, other Christian denominations have a different interpretation of the scientists’ findings.

“Clearly this means our God is the one true God and that we should exterminate rival religions,” says Frank Page, leader of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention. “Now that we have truth on our side, I think it’s time we start a new crusade.”
