The first weapon-scale prototype of a futuristic Navy railgun began undergoing firing tests last week, the next big step toward putting the electromagnetic superweapon on U.S. warships by 2020. The Navy envisions using railguns to destroy enemy ships, defend against enemy missiles, or bombard land targets in support of Marines hitting the beaches.
Newly released video shows the prototype railgun using an electric-powered launcher rather than gunpowder to fire a huge hypersonic bullet in a cloud of flame and smoke. The Office of Naval Research hopes its new test phase — scheduled to last until 2017 — leads to a Navy weapon capable of hurling 40-pound projectiles at speeds of 4,500 mph to 5,600 mph over 50 to 100 miles (7,240 to 9,010 kilometers per hour over 80 to 161 kilometers).
The full-size prototype, made by BAE Systems, "looks like a real gun," said Roger Ellis, program manager for the railgun at the Office of Naval Research, during a media teleconference today (Feb. 28). Previous tests involved clunky laboratory prototypes that would never see action aboard a Navy warship.

U.S. Navy commanders ultimately want a weapon capable of firing up to 10 guided projectiles per minute at targets up to 100 miles away. Navy warships currently have 5-inch guns capable of firing at distances of 13 miles.
"There is potential to replace the 5-inch gun, but it would do far more," Ellis said in response to an InnovationNewsDaily question. The railgun could hit the same distant targets that Navy missiles strike today, he said.
A second railgun prototype, built by General Atomics, is set to arrive for testing in April, Ellis said. Having railguns built by different companies gives the Navy a choice if it ultimately decides to deploy the superweapon.
A video screenshot shows the Navy's new railgun prototype being loaded for firing tests.
Both General Atomics and BAE Systems committed millions of their own dollars during the first $240 million test phase, which recently ended. The newly begun Phase II is funded at about the same amount. It is testing prototypes capable of harnessing 32 megajoules of energy. Just one megajoule would be enough to throw a 1-ton car 100 mph.
During the five years of Phase II, the Navy plans to test cooling systems and a battery that could store the energy required by the railgun. It has contracted with General Atomics, BAE Systems and Raytheon for designs for a pulsed power system.
Because of its hypersonic speed produced by the railgun, a projectile shaped like a bullet could deliver devastating damage even without exploding. It could include electronic guidance systems such as GPS that would be protected against the immense heat of the giant bullet's hypersonic passage.

"The rounds we are firing currently are non-aerodynamic slugs," Ellis said of the testing. "They match the interior ballistics of what the launcher is expected to see but are intended to slow down quickly."
If all goes well, the Navy could end up equipping its ships with railguns of all different sizes. Companies such as General Atomics have already built smaller railguns for their own testing purposes.
"We believe this is game-changing technology, and in our case we've invested internal funds of more than $20 million for a subscale prototype to move the technology forward," said Tom Hurn, director of railgun programs at San Diego-based General Atomics.

Why did you become a Freemason?

From: "Robert G. Pritzker"
Subject: Why I Became a Mason
Dear Brother:
When I was sixteen, my grandfather passed on. I never really had a chance to know him, as I was raised some distance from where he lived. Growing up so far away from him, I never had the opportunity to find out the way he lived; who his friends were; what he thought or what he felt -- he was an enigma to me.
A few years later, I followed in my father's footsteps and became a United States Marine, but that really wasn't for myself, but rather it was to give my father the chance to live vicariously through me and to recapture the proudest part of his youth. Sadly, shortly before the end of my enlistment my father died as well. When the time came, I left the Marines, since it had been for him that I'd joined in the first place, and with him gone, there didn't seem to be any point in continuing on. But upon going home to the place where he'd lived, I found I had no family left, and ultimately no home either.
Penniless and alone, I left the place of my youth to journey to my mother's home, which was near where my grandfather had lived. For years I lived without friends and without any family that I knew, save my mother. Unhappy and depressed, a stranger in a strange land, I fell into vice and self-indulgence, hoping to fill the emptiness inside with something permanent and real. But, like a cup with no bottom, my soul was never, and could never have been, filled with anything but nothingness.
My grandmother had survived my grandfather's passing, and during this time was living alone and getting on in age to the point where she was no longer capable of taking care of herself. Soon the time came for her to enter assisted living and to sell the home where she and my grandfather had lived for fifty years. After the sale of the house, it became necessary to clean out the basement -- and it was there in the shadows and dusty cobwebs where I first discovered light.
Though I had grown up far away, at times over the course of my youth I had visited my grandfather. During one of those visits, perhaps when I was five years old or so, we were in the basement and he handed me a piece of chalk, and with it I drew a picture of Jonah's whale on a metal cabinet which he used to store tools and nails and such. I remember at the time him drawing something as well, and now twenty and more years later, I stood in the gloom of his basement, looking at my childhood picture of Jonah's whale on that old metal cabinet, and, curiously, at a small symbol crudely scrawled in chalk under it that I knew I'd seen before -- the square and compasses surrounding a "G" in the center.
I knew that this meant something, or perhaps I deluded myself into thinking that this small symbol was somehow meant for me and had been there waiting to be seen and understood for almost a quarter century. "What did it mean?" I asked myself.
Immediately, and for some reason unknown to me to this day, I had the urge to visit his grave. Somewhere in the back of my mind I knew that that was where I had seen this symbol before. Sure enough, as I parked near where he lay, I noticed a sign that said: "Garden of Masonic." As I approached his grave, I noticed something else: An altar of white stone bearing the same symbol I had seen inscribed in the basement. Upon his grave marker, the same symbol was etched, and I knew that this was somehow his way of sending me a message that I would only understand when I was ready. And I did understand, though it would be years before I ever thought myself worthy to take that first step.
From then on, everywhere I turned I saw that symbol, and everytime I did there was a stirring in my blood to follow it. But I never did. I had been down the road of trying to live for someone else once before, and had become wise to the pitfalls that are hidden along the way. But on my wedding day, I noticed that my new father-in-law was wearing a ring on his right hand which bore that same symbol, and there I took that first step and asked him what it was all about. He said that he would tell me in time.
That was three years ago, and on the eve of my third wedding anniversary, he brought me a sheet of paper and asked me to fill it out and sign it. I did. And three weeks ago, I was made a Mason. After my initiation, I had the opportunity to speak with a number of the older brethren and inquire if any of them knew my grandfather in life. Many did, and all knew him as a just and upright Mason, as they assured me that I myself now had the opportunity to be.

Is the world going to end in 2012?

To enumerate there are 11 most researched 2012 predictions that can be found in the internet.
The Mayans have a very unique understanding of our solar system’s cycles. The most significant of which has much to do with the 2012 prophecies. The Mayans predicted that from 1999 we have 13 years to realize the changes in our conscious attitude and stray away from the path of self-destruction. We must move unto a path that opens our consciousness to integrate with all that exists. Their prophecy talks about 'The Time of No-Time' which is a period of 20 years. The last 20 years of the Sun's cycle of 5,125 years is from 1992 - 2012.
According to some astronomers, on 2012 our solar system will cross with the Galactic Equator which only happens every 26,000 years. Since the Mayan calendar began in 3114 BC, they had never experienced anything like this before thus giving more credibility to their 2012 predictions.
The Mayan Long Count calendar says the current age of mankind began on a day of destructive Earth movement and it will end on a day of destructive Earth movement. This day of movement could mean horrible earthquakes. It could also be translated to the missing planet Nibiru slamming into our planet.
Hopi prophecy and the Blue Star Kachina returning
“The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a "Kachina" removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children [the general public]. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.” (Hopi prophecy is a religion, Kachina is a masked dancer during a Pueblo religious ceremony who is thought to embody some particular spirit, Oraibi is a Hopi Village in Navajo County).
These 2012 predictions means that World War III will start in the old countries like India, China, Islamic Nations and Africa. The United States will be destroyed by atomic bombs and radioactivity.
That time is not far off. It is represented by a blue star, far off yet visible.
The Hopi name for the blue star Sirius is Blue Star Kachina. Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky near Orion’s Belt and Planet Mars.
Aztec and Inca prophecies2012 Predictions
The Aztec 2012 predictions says that on the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic plane, while also closely conjuncting the exact center of the galaxy. This means that our solar system appears to belong to another galaxy that is colliding with the Milky Way. Putting it all together, it implies the 2011-2012 events are natural cycles of maximum solar explosions which could scorch all or parts of the earth.
The Sybils Doomsday predictions
Sybil is a young girl that the mathematician Pythagoras trained to be a channel between himself as the seeker, and the God Apollo. Sybil became a priestess of Pythia (channel or voice of God). Some Sybilla prophecies were recorded on parchment and passed from generation to generation. The most talked about Sybil Prophecy of this age is the prophecy which mentions 9 periods of 800 years. The age after the ninth period is filled with doom and gloom.
Sybil’s 2012 predictions:
“The things in the tenth generation shall come to pass. The Earth shall be shaken by a great earthquake that throws many cities into the sea. There shall be war. Fire shall come flashing down from the heavens and many cities burn. Black ashes shall fill the great sky. Then know the Anger of the Gods.”
Revelations in the Bible for the end of days
The Book of Revelation is filled with strange and awesome imagery that is interpreted by many in different ways. The amazing symbolism runs throughout the rest of the book and of course it is highly debatable as to what is to be taken literally or symbolically. The Book says that judgements are released upon the earth in the form of seven trumpets, two witnesses, a dragon (the devil), the beast (the antichrist), the false prophet and the seven golden bowls. The judgements passed on to the Earth and its inhabitants include:
• Plague
• Earthquakes
• Hailstorms
• Fire
• Famine
• Meteor storm
• Lack of drinking water



Whenever conspiracy theory is uttered, the mysterious "Illuminati" (enlightened ones) are most often named as being responsible. Ironically, however, while many, many people can presumably point those conspiracies to be belonging to the other conspiracy groups, the "Illuminati 2012 conspiracy" is always left hanging as some secret, shadowy entity which no one can quite describe. Interestingly too, no one can quite identify what specific acts can be attributed to them - everybody's got their own lists. But no one in 225 years seems to have succeeded to make the organization reveal their secrets.                                                 

Briefly, the background of the Illuminati puzzle is this. On May 1, 1776 (May 1st is “Grand Climax,” an important day for Satanists), in Bavaria, Dr. Adam Weishaupt, a professor of Canon Law at Ingolstadt University and a former Jesuit, formed a secret society called the Order of the Illuminati within the existing Masonic lodges of Germany. Weishaupt wrote his philosophy of Illuminism, which calls for a one-world government and religion that controls the population. It outlined that private property was to be abolished and that its master plan was to be carried out in secret. Since Masonry is itself a secret society, the Illuminati 2012 year, was a secretly mentioned within a secret society, a mystery inside a mystery, so to say.

The Illuminati’s was deeply at odds with the Catholic Church which condemned them wholeheartedly. Their short lived group was eventually banned in 1784 when Karl Theodor, the ruler of Bavaria, made all secret societies illegal. But because of Freemasonry's careless involvement and the misuse of Freemasonry by the Illuminati's founder who had become a Mason, the legends of its continued existence and influence persisted into the twenty-first century tying the organizations somehow together.

Some researchers claim that Weishaupt’s philosophies influenced the writings of the Communist Manifesto. Furthermore, claims are made that members of the Illuminati aided the rise of Communism. It is believed that the Illuminati have infiltrated European and U.S. positions of power and are behind the scenes influencing policies and world events. For example, The Order of Skull & Bones, a secret society based at Yale, is believed to be an American extension of the Illuminati 2012 end date. Members of the order include Averill Harriman, Prescott Bush, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and John Kerry. And now there are many speculations that the current US president is involved as well.

Open-minded people around the earth are experiencing an awakening to the domination of the evil illuminati. As evil government agencies and spinoff organizations develop its electronic wizardry dominating techniques, in addition to “cleaning up” to initiate the New World Order, the fabrication of “problems” clearly is identified by the opened-minded individual. Recognizing the evil intent of the world leaders, there should be no doubt that there is a powerful hidden source that controls world events, economy, the media, and agenda of the world governments.

Who are the Invisible and Primary Controllers of the World?

Jesus aptly taught that this entire world is under the domination of the darkness. The lower entities dominate this world along with their human cohorts. All the sages that attained a higher level of consciousness taught that this entire world is directly under the power of the darkness. An old phrase that labeled the earthy evil organization of the darkness is “The Illuminati”, which is the “shadow government”. Identifying the Illuminati should not be difficult to comprehend after thorough research.

The Very Beginning of the Dark Earthly Organization:

The beginnings of the earthly organization of the Lower Entities of the Darkness stems back to Cain and Able. Cain’s line became the evil human seed of the darkness through murder. After the flood, Canaan’s offspring and Lot’s daughter’s offspring of incest formed thirteen tribes of the Canaanites that issued as the dark seed of the Lower Entities. Canaan, Moab, and Ammon being born out of incest caused the human seed of the darkness into the earth. This incestuous bloodline among the elite binds the oligarchies. Canaan was cursed because Ham had sex with Noah’s wife, which defines as “seeing the nakedness of the father”

Who is the  Illuminati?

The Illuminati is an all powerful entity of secretive societies that repudiate national boundaries. They act above the laws of all countries. They control every aspect of politics, corporations, every religion around the world, commerce and industry, banking, insurance, mining, the medical system, the drug trade, the petroleum industry, and the porn industry; a group answerable to no one but its members. Most foundations and think-tanks are facades, within the background they are pursuing the Illuminati agenda of the NWO. Any profitable enterprise that relates to grasping control over the public the Illuminati dominate. The Illuminati is in direct contact with their “masters” the lower entities. The Lower Spirit Entities dominate the Illuminati; satanic worship and supporting the Reptilian/Lower Entity agenda is a supreme attribute of the Illuminati that includes government “puppet” leaders.
Humans thrive on power, domination and secretiveness. The evil Illuminati structure of hierarchy resembles the pyramid, beginning with the “file and rank”, informers, runners etc, rising to the top councils of the “Grand Drude Council” and the “Olympians”, the mind controlling professionals.
This is a short overview of the Illuminati and that covert and direct mind control is occurring around the world. There’s tons of information on the Internet about the Illuminati. Through detailed research, the reader will understand the deep level of darkness that this world is subjected under. Within this realm of humans—the light is void out and replaced with direct satanic worship. Royalty and wealth are a captivating lifestyle, though the path of luciferic darkness will crouch at the door.
A short list of the organizations tied to the Illuminati:
DSCN78071 The Illuminati Evil Earthly Organization.
  • Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA)
  • The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
  • The Bilderbergers
  • Trilaterals
  • The Zionists
  • Freemasonry
  • Bolshevism-Rosicrucianism
  • Skull and Bones; the majority of US Presidents are Bones Men, except for JFK.

The Bloodline of the Illuminati:

It is said that the Illuminati consist of 13 bloodline families that continually dominate politics that correlates with the blood families of the Euro/Anglo-Saxon Crown of the middle ages, and around the world. These Thirteen bloodlines must correlate with the Canaanites of incest. It was a commandment for an Israelites not to marry a Canaanite. The blood families of the Illuminati are genetically-related through incest. The primary goal of the Illuminati is mind control, world domination, and time travel for the service of their masters the lower entities. There are several stories of recovered mind control salves and from the writer of David Icke that the Reptilians/Grays/ShapeShiters interbred with humans that produces the thirteen bloodlines. This conjecture is apparently true, the mixed blood of incest among the nobel families of the elite within the Illuminati is a reality although these reptilians and greys are ET’s which are different than the lower entities. Moses command to not mess with blood, the commandment makes perfect sense because the powers of the darkness are obsessed with mixing, and drinking blood. The Reptilians get a cocaine high from human blood called adrenalchrome; blood is necessary for them to progress genetically and to have the ability to shape-shift. The Lower Entities feed themselves with human blood; the blood donors around the world are a food depot for the lower entities.



Most people around the earth still view the disasters of 9-11, the earthquakes, airplane deaths, the death of popular people such as Michael Jackson as a part of life, it just happens. The Terrorists did it—9-11, “God” is causing the earthquakes—Haiti, an airplane malfunction—AF447. However, very few people are aware, nor do people consider the numerology behind the Illuminati of the Occult and the usage of Black Magic.
Please note: this article is not about the belief in the Occult, it is about the numerology and how the combined powers of the darkness use the numerology of the Occult to accomplish its agenda. The Occult does exist and is a very powerful entity for the governments and its agencies, secret societies, masonry, and all offshoots of the powers of the darkness. This can scare many people, but just understanding that the Occult uses numerology and symbolism all over the world can assist to comprehending the agenda of the NWO.
From researching the prime numbers of the occult in relation to 2012, there is a paramount reason why the world is popularizing the date of 12/21 2012 and the time 11:11. Without understanding the number system of the occult religion, the numbers of 2012 look innocent, we indeed don’t view the number 666 within the date. Well, this post will analyze the numbers of 12/21 2012 11:11.

The Numbers of the Serpent Occult Religion.

The most venerated occult numbers are: 3, 6, 9, 11, 13, and multiples thereof, especially 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77. A triplication of numbers is also considered sacred (possibly even more sacred) to the occultist: 111, 222, 333, and so fourth. The number 5 is the number of Death; also, an extremely scared number is the double 11, as in 11:11, or 11/11/11.
The number 7 and 12 are also an extremely important number universally. Seven is a number of complement and is considered a Divine number. Seven days in a week, seven colors to the rainbow. The occult will also use this number 7, but their favorite numbers are 11 and 6. The occult avoids using the numbers and multiplications of 4, 8, 10, and 12, unless they correlate with their numbers.

The 2012 Numerology?

The winter solstice in 2012 will occur 12/21 2012 and at 11:11 universal time.
The time is 11:11 that adds to 22.
The entire date: 12/21/2012 = 1+2+2+1+2+0+1+2= 11!
The date according to the Occult is really 11:11:11.
WOW, that means the date and time correlates with the triple power sacred number of 11:11:11.
The number 11 correlates with the letter K as in KKK = 11:11:11.
1+1+1+1+1+1 = 6; 11+11+11 = 33.
Also, 6+6 = 12, 3×7 = 21; the day and month 12/21 or, = 1+2+2+1 = 6 which adds 666 to the mix, from the month of 12.
The day of 21 is a multiple of 7×3 that signifies a time of complement.
2+1+2 = 5, the number of death; the year 2012. But, not the “end of the world” but the death of an old age into a new—the new world order.
All the numbers of the Occult are related to 2012; 3, 5, 6, 7, 11, 22, and 33 = 11:11:11.
So the day and month relate to 6 and to 666 (covertly), the year relates to 5 (death), and the time of the solstice relates to the power number of 11 doubled (activation). And, the day relates to 7 (time of complement). And, most importantly the entire dates adds to 11 that creates the triple 11:11:11 and adds to 33 (Illuminati Mason Pyramid of the 33*).
All the numbers of the Occult are involved with the 2012 syndrome. But, what is the meaning, and the deception behind 2012?


11:11 signifies the activation of a “new beginning”. Aquarius is associated with the astrological 11th house, the “water bearer”, a possibility of entering into the “Age of Aquarius”. The current age of Pisces, the two fish, possibly representing the battle between the darkness and the light of the last two thousand years. The Occult Serpent religion views a “death” and a new beginning as very important. Throughout the centuries the fertility worship of the spring equinox has held in place that dates all the way back to Sumer of 3500 BCE. Considering this history, the death of an old age, into a new age is extremely important, and this age will be the age of the dominance of the New World Order and the rise of the occult agenda. So considering the occult numerology about 12/21/2012 11:11, or more importantly, 11:11:11, we can be assured that startling events will take place around this time.

2012 and 666

Using the numbers of 2012 dividing by 666, the number is 3.021021021021. 2+1 = 3, the prime numbers of the Occult.
2012 divide 6 = 335.33333333.
2012-666 = 1346; Interesting, the date when the black death plague began. In Europe the date of the Black Death is said to have commenced between 1346 and 1348 from many different sources. Even of the plague started in Europe in 1347, the virus migrated from the East.
Let’s go back further, 1346-666=680.
October 10 680 CE: or 22nd Safar, 61 Hijra [680 CE].
Battle of Karbala: Shia Imam Husayn bin Ali, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, was decapitated by forces under Caliph Yazid I. This is commemorated by Shi’a Muslims as Aashurah. The event caused a division of Islam.
10/10=11, 6+8=14 a multiple of 7, 22nd Safar = a double 11, and 61 Hijra 6+1=7, which signifies a completed agenda.
And further yet: 680-666=14.
14 CE is the year the Augustus died, the Roman Ruler of 40 years (possibly murdered) on 8/19, 14 CE
8+1+9=18 which correlates with 666.
14 CE = 1+4=5, the number of death, or 1-4=3. It is said he died at 3.00pm which is 1500 = 3×5=15 or 1+5=6, but we don’t know if that was universal time.
The people of the Roman Empire worshipped Augustus as a god, including after his death.

靠攏華府 查「正義活躍組織」

遭公開大量電郵的Strategic Forcasting公司(簡稱Stratfor)總部設於得州,自稱以情報蒐集方式取得資料,以分析地緣政治及保安趨勢,大批名列財富500榜的巨企都是其客戶。不過維基解密創辦人阿桑奇稱,這家被喻「影子中情局(CIA)」的私人情報公司,實質仰賴美國政府、操守成疑的外國情報人員及記者收集資料,並向軍火商洛歇馬丁等大企業,乃至美國國土安全部和國防情報局等政府機構提供機密情報,調查目標包括「一些為正義事業而奮鬥的活躍組織」,令人非常憂慮。


據公開的電郵披露,Stratfor曾協助陶氏化工於1984年印度博帕爾(Bhopal)化工廠毒氣外泄事件後,監察民間組織對公司的抨擊,並商討如何應對。去年12月一封電郵中,Stratfor總裁弗里德曼(George Friedman)指示旗下女分析員巴蘭(Reva Bhallan)向一名以色列情報人員,套取委內瑞拉總統查韋斯的健康情報,要求巴蘭「你得控制他(以色列情報人員)。控制可以是財政、性或是心理方面……這是我們為了展開你下一階段的商談而作的準備」,暗示與升遷有關。



FOX Edits: 美國戰爭的假掌聲


The World War Three files: For 30 years the papers have been kept secret. Now, the extraordinary story of how Whitehall drew up terrifyingly detailed plans for nuclear armageddon can finally be revealed

By Dominic Sandbrook

'The War Book' was a document which included plans as to how Britain would deal with the outbreak of World War Three
'The War Book' was a document which included plans as to how Britain would deal with the outbreak of World War Three
March 1981, and inside 10 Downing Street, Margaret Thatcher is confronting the most terrible dilemma any British Prime Minister has ever faced.
The news could hardly be worse. Across Britain, tens of thousands of terrified people are streaming out of the major cities. Looting is widespread, while every day brings bomb attacks at railway stations and RAF bases.
Abroad, the Red Army has sliced through the West’s defences, using chemical weapons to punch through Nato’s front lines. Yugoslavia has fallen, and West Germany and Norway are on the verge of succumbing.
After four days of Russian air raids, killing hundreds of people in Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Southampton, Mrs Thatcher faces the ultimate decision. On her desk is a message from the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, asking for authorisation to launch a nuclear attack across the Iron Curtain.
She tells her colleagues that never before has a British Cabinet faced ‘such a grim choice’.
But there is no alternative — and with the world staring into the nuclear abyss, Mrs Thatcher gives the go-ahead.
This may sound like the stuff of fantasy. We all know that there was no World War III in March 1981. But, in fact, this scenario is chillingly realistic.
For far from being dreamt up by some pulp novelist, this was a top secret exercise organised by the Cabinet Office in 1981, to prepare officials for a possible ‘transition to war’. 
It remained hidden away in the National Archives until this year, when it was placed in the Public Record Office in Kew under the 30-Year Rule. Most people never knew it existed.
But now, for the first time, the Mail reveals the story of World War III that never was.
Every two years, civil servants would take part in an exercise to test Britain’s capacity to deal with outbreak of a new war. (Whether such exercises still take place today, time will tell.)
Their bible was the ‘War Book’, a confidential blueprint that even included plans for a shattered Britain to be run by 12 regional governors in the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust.
Leafing through the documents, you realise how seriously officials took this gigantic war game. It took fully two weeks, with civil servants playing the parts of Mrs Thatcher’s ministers, and one official, Richard Hastie-Smith of the Cabinet Office, even playing the Iron Lady herself.
They spent hours painstakingly working out how war would affect ordinary British families, devoting almost 250 close-typed pages to such issues as petrol rationing, railway timetables, agricultural supplies and medical provision for injured servicemen.
At the heart of the exercise, though, is a truly terrifying dilemma. Every Prime Minister during the Cold War, from Attlee to Thatcher, knew that one day they might be asked to approve a nuclear strike. But had war broken out, as the 1981 exercise envisages, they would have had little choice but to say ‘yes’.

Threatening: Soviet army tanks in Moscow's Red Square
The scenario begins in early March 1981 — which indeed was a period of deepening international tension. After the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan on Christmas Day 1979, East-West relations had reached their lowest point since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.
American anxiety was reflected in the election of the tough-talking Ronald Reagan as President in November 1980, while the Soviet leadership, under the ageing Leonid Brezhnev, were terrified that Nato might launch a surprise attack.
In Britain, Mrs Thatcher had agreed to station cruise missiles at the U.S. base on Greenham Common, much to the fury of Left-wing demonstrators.
And behind the Iron Curtain, tension was rising, with Polish dissidents forming the Solidarity union to stand up to their Communist oppressors.
Whitehall’s war planning begins on March 9, when the Cabinet’s Transition to War Committee holds its first meeting. Soviet forces are codenamed ‘Orange’, Nato countries are known as ‘Blue’.
The exercise begins with the slide to war already underway. In the Soviet Union, the senile Brezhnev has been removed by an internal coup, making way for a junta of KGB hard-liners.
As in World War I, the real tinderbox is the Balkans, with Warsaw Pact forces massing on the borders of Yugoslavia — a nominally Communist country that had been moving towards the West.
Both Britain and the U.S. have sent extra troops to West Germany, while the Home Office reports that Soviet vessels are ‘harassing fishing boats in the North and Norwegian seas’.
At home, officials report, there is a mood of ‘apprehension’.
There have been ‘ugly scenes at demonstrations called to protest about rising unemployment and public spending cuts’, while major strikes in the railways and the steel industry have left Britain ‘not well placed to face the loss of essential imports’.

Leafing through the documents, you realise how seriously officials took this gigantic war game
Meanwhile, a peace organisation known as ‘Purple Peace’ and backed by Communist money has been holding massive demonstrations. And across the Welsh border, a group known as Cewri Cymru — ‘Welsh Giants’ — have been launching arson attacks on public buildings. ‘They are known to have Orange support for their cause,’ the Home Office reports.
Indeed, at the time, with nationalist sentiment running high, the newspapers were often reporting arson attacks on English-owned homes in Wales, and Irish terrorism.
In the next two days, as the international situation worsens, public anxiety begins to rise.
The Ministry of Defence launches an operation to return some 100,000 servicemen’s wives and children from West Germany. Panic-buying leads to reports of ‘growing shortages of canned foods, sugar and flour’, and many petrol stations in the South-East have run short of fuel.
Outside military bases, there are now large demonstrations. In Leeds and Sheffield, thousands of students march against the Government. At Horse Guards Parade in London, heckling by far-Left activists leads to the suspension of the traditional military ceremonies.

And at Dartmoor Prison, some 24 inmates make a break for freedom, including Free Caledonia and Cewri Cymru terrorists — all part of the Communists’ plan to disrupt the Thatcher government’s military preparations.
By the evening of March 11, the drift to war seems unstoppable. Intelligence reports suggest a massive military build-up along the Soviet Union’s border with Turkey and the Bulgarian frontier with Yugoslavia, while Nato scrambles to reinforce its troops in West Germany and Scandinavia.
Two days later the crisis takes a turn for the worse, as Warsaw Pact troops flood into Yugoslavia. From the Middle East comes news that Iraq has attacked eastern Turkey, while Norwegian sources report a vast military build-up across their north-eastern border.
British attention, however, is focused on the ‘deteriorating food situation’. In many rural areas, shops have run out of coal, oil, batteries and candles, as well as sugar and flour, while many chemists have run out of first aid and common medicines.
Far too late, according to the Press, the government declares a State of Emergency and puts the Whitehall machine on a war-footing. But the Home Office reports ‘ugly scenes at a supermarket in Brixton’ (where there actually had been bloody riots that summer), and there are the first outbreaks of looting in major cities.

Sabotage is now widespread. At Immingham, on the Humber Estuary, a terrorist bomb destroys the entire oil refinery with all its fuel stocks, while at the Devonport naval base in Plymouth a bomb kills four and injures 18.
The next morning, Saturday March 14, there are queues outside banks and building societies as ordinary families rush to withdraw their savings. The BBC has suspended all weather forecasts on government advice, while there are reports that Mrs Thatcher has promised the Irish government a United Ireland in return for the ‘provision of temporary evacuation camps for selected British subjects’.
In reality, those camps would probably have been internment camps for Left-wing agitators. Mercifully, we will never know.
The big news, though, comes from Trafalgar Square, where an anti-war rally, led by ‘prominent Left-wing MPs, leading trade unionists and personalities from many walks of life including sport and showbiz’, ends in violent clashes with the police. Almost incredibly, the exercise has the police arresting the Labour leader Michael Foot and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Robert Runcie, who have been swept up in the fighting.
Perhaps this was wishful thinking on the civil servants’ part. In the aftermath, the Home Office bans all marches and processions for the next month. But law and order are now breaking down. Sixteen people are killed by terrorist bombings, arms caches are discovered in Lancashire and Wales, and the station commander at RAF Finningley is kidnapped by Left-wingers.
‘Civilian morale is not high,’ the Home Office reports. ‘Food rationing and lack of petrol have hit morale hardest.’
By Sunday evening, war seems certain. More than 20 Warsaw Pact divisions have overrun Yugoslavia, and the Ministry of Defence announces that an attack on the West is expected ‘within hours rather than days’.
Most newspapers are now running huge ‘Protect and Survive’ ads, telling people how to react in the event of a nuclear attack, while Euston and Paddington stations have been overwhelmed by terrified Londoners trying to escape the capital.
But despite calls for the Queen to leave for Balmoral, she is determined to emulate her father, George VI, steadfast to the end. ‘The Queen has no intention of leaving the capital,’ says Buckingham Palace.
Early next morning, Monday, March 16, 1981, comes at last the moment that Britain has dreaded.

As the international situation worsens, public anxiety begins to rise
At six o’clock, while most people are still sleeping, 100 Soviet bombers launch an unprovoked air raid, striking at air defence and radar installations across the country.
Half an hour later, the Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, the Foreign Secretary, Lord Carrington, and the Defence Secretary, John Nott, hold a hurried meeting at Number 10.
Carrington (or rather, the official playing him) brings more bad news: ‘In Allied Command Europe, a full-scale assault by Orange land forces had been mounted against the Germans, British and United States Corps areas from 4.30 that morning.
‘Orange parachutists had dropped on Bornholm [in Norway]. There had been repeated air attacks against the 4th Allied Tactical Air Force Base.’
At nine that morning, Mrs Thatcher broadcasts to the nation, appealing for ‘calm and common sense’, while the Home Secretary, Willie Whitelaw, follows with some advice about warning sirens.
All television and radio services are now taken off the air, except for one BBC channel, controlled by the Government. But now many people have yielded to panic. Major roads are blocked by traffic, with thousands of cars abandoned for lack of petrol.
As the possibility of war increases, an anti-war protest in Trafalgar Square leads to violence between left wing demonstrators and police

The police report that 50,000 people are trying to flee Manchester for Wales and the North, with a further 20,000 heading out of Liverpool.
A few hours later, Whitehall is shaken by a massive car bomb, followed by an explosion at Green Park Tube station that kills eight people and injures 35. That afternoon, even as a second air raid hits seven British air bases, the Thatcher government formally declares war on the Soviet Union.
The next day, Tuesday 17th, is one of the grimmest days in our islands’ history.
That morning, the Cabinet’s War Measures Committee recommends that ‘major art treasures should now be removed from London, Edinburgh and Cardiff’. The committee also suggests that the Queen address the nation, to bolster ‘morale in the United Kingdom’.
But the Warsaw Pact’s military advantage means that ‘Britain’s air defence has been virtually eliminated’. Throughout the day, hundreds of civilians are killed in Soviet air raids, early Home Office estimates suggesting at least 400 casualties in Glasgow, Plymouth, Liverpool and Devonport.
Sabotage attacks at Edinburgh Airport and Avonmouth docks kill a further 76 people. And in yet another shocking atrocity, a terrorist bomb kills 16 people at Victoria station.
That night there are stormy scenes in the House of Commons, with Mrs Thatcher, who has been in power for just 22 months, under attack from all sides. Many of her backbenchers are furious at the unfolding disaster. And although she invites Labour to join a National Government, the offer falls ‘on stony ground’.
In the streets, there are ‘scenes reminiscent of Vietnam . . . as families with children push overladen supermarket trolleys along the roads out of cities’. Some 15,000 people are fleeing west every hour; in Wales, farmers are using shotguns against ‘marauding bands of youths’.
On the 18th, the penultimate day of this terrifying exercise, the War Cabinet meets at noon.
Mrs Thatcher’s intelligence chiefs report that ‘the Blue Alliance’s defences had held up to the Orange attack better than some would have expected, but that it was not clear how long this reassuring situation would last in the face of the risk that Orange would succeed in over-running Northern Norway [and] of the deteriorating balance of the air battle in the Central Region [i.e. Germany]’.
There are also reports that the Communists are using chemical weapons in Yugoslavia; it is likely that ‘Orange had taken this opportunity of testing these weapons without using them against Blue forces’.

At six o'clock, while most people are still sleeping, 100 Soviet bombers launch an unprovoked air raid, striking at air defence and radar installations
For the first time, Mrs Thatcher and her key ministers, principally Willie Whitelaw and Lord Carrington, consider using nuclear weapons. ‘Early use of nuclear weapons by the Blue Alliance would carry serious political repercussions,’ the Cabinet minutes record.
‘There was a risk of a loss of public confidence. It would be imperative for the Prime Minister to speak to the Leader of the Opposition and one of his more reliable senior colleagues with a view to establishing a bipartisan approach.’ But there are ‘grounds for believing . . . that the general public would support resolute action by the Government’.
Finally the War Cabinet agrees that ‘if the Blue Alliance were faced with the prospect of a collapse in their defences which could not be made good by conventional means … it would be necessary to resort to the use of nuclear weapons in order to restore the political balance between Blue and Orange.
‘Such use ought to be made before rather than when the collapse of Blue’s conventional defences occurred.’
Overnight there are more raids, with thousands killed at Gatwick, Heathrow and major cities across the country. And next day’s War Cabinet is another frightening occasion. It opens with news that the Russians are now using chemical weapons in Greece, Turkey and northern Italy, and are poised to break through in West Germany.
Blast: As war hits Britain, an explosion at Green Park tube station in March 1981 kills eight people and injures 35
Blast: As war hits Britain, an explosion at Green Park tube station in March 1981 kills eight people and injures 35
Britain’s defence chiefs warn that if Nato uses nuclear weapons, the Soviet response would probably be ‘a massive retaliatory strike . . . employing as many as 250-500 weapons against Blue targets of significance to the Orange offensive.’
But the consensus is that if the West’s conventional forces are broken, ‘the use of nuclear weapons to restore political balance would be justified’.
The Soviet leaders ‘would only agree to negotiate’, an intelligence report explains, ‘if they thought that the Blue alliance was near the point where it would have to decide on the strategic use of nuclear weapons’ — meaning an apocalyptic attack on the Soviet Union itself.
Mrs Thatcher — or, in reality, Richard Hastie-Smith — reports that she has secretly discussed the dilemma with Labour, who ‘raised no objections’ to a Nato strike. If the worst comes to the worst, she says, Britain should hit targets in Eastern Europe — but not the USSR itself, which would be too provocative.

In desperation, the PM orders a nuclear strike
The world is very near the brink now. That night, Britain is pounded by more air raids, with scores of civilians killed and at least 100 houses destroyed in Liverpool. At dawn, Soviet bombers use nerve gas and chemical blistering agents in attacks on Scotland, Manchester and Carlisle.
At nine o’clock on the morning of March 20, the War Cabinet meets for the final time. The Red Army has now broken through in West Germany, punching a hole 40 km deep in the Allied lines.
Accordingly, the supreme Nato commander has requested ‘authority to execute a nuclear strike on targets in the territory of Orange satellite countries’. He wants to launch 29 nuclear weapons at 5 am the following day, aimed at military bases in East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary and Bulgaria.
This is it: the moment of decision. Even the Cabinet minutes, usually so anodyne, so dry, feel heavy with tension.
Yet after everything that has gone before, Mrs Thatcher’s choice is simply inevitable.
‘Every effort had been made to bring the conflict to a halt without resorting to the use of nuclear weapons,’ explain the minutes, ‘but to no avail.
In the imagining of Whitehall imagining of World War Three, several British towns are bombed from the air just like in the Second World War
In the imagining of Whitehall imagining of World War Three, several British towns are bombed from the air just like in the Second World War
‘The Prime Minister, summing up the discussion, said that never before had a Cabinet been faced with such a grim choice between capitulating to a powerful and malevolent aggressor, and embarking on a course of action which could end with the destruction of civilisation.
‘But the choice had to be made, and it was the clear view of the Restricted War Cabinet that the consequences of bowing to Orange aggression would be intolerable.’ Accordingly, Mrs Thatcher gives the go-ahead.
And there the exercise ends, with the world poised on the brink of nuclear armageddon. To go on, you feel, would be impossible; the consequences would simply be too awful to contemplate.
Of course none of this ever happened. It was just a war game: a bureaucratic fantasy, but a fantasy nonetheless.
But, reading the file, you get a real sense of just how seriously Whitehall officials took the dangers of a nuclear conflagration, as well as a glimpse of the terrible paranoia of the Cold War.
The men and women who took part in this massive exercise had no way of knowing that their worst fears would never be realised. They had never heard of Mikhail Gorbachev, and assumed the Berlin Wall would stand for ever.
They had grown up in the shadow of World War II, which killed more than 60 million people across the planet. And most remembered the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, when the world had come terrifyingly close to nuclear conflict.
Perhaps even now their 21st-century successors are working on similar exercises, imagining the bloody collapse of the European Union, a massive terrorist attack on London or even the nightmare of a chemical or nuclear atrocity.
We may well count ourselves lucky that the dreadful horrors of World War III never came to pass.
But as I closed that obscure, dusty file, I wondered what future generations will think of us, that we lived in a time when such nightmares seemed so terrifyingly plausible.

The International UFO Congress at Phoenix, AZ 26-Feb-2012

FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ (CBS5) - If you're looking for something fun, not to mention out of this world, you're invited to attend this year's international UFO congress.

Whether or not you believe there's life out there, these folks are in town to plead their case.

"You have this whole group of people who are here you get to socialize. You get to share ideas, you get to hear stories. It's a great place to come and soak it all in," said event organizer Jason McClellan.

Jeff Willes has been researching UFOs over the Valley for 25 years.

"There's definitely something we're getting on video, nobody's really sure what it is, but there's something there," said Willes.




by Andy Lloyd October 2001 - December 2003

I have been investigating the symbols used by secret societies and mystery cults to try and establish the existence of a hidden seam of golden knowledge about the Dark Star.
My premise is that these symbols are very ancient, and have survived the ravages of persecutions down the years, as monotheism and dogmatic religious authorities have attempted to stamp out the old teachings. We now live in more enlightened times (one would hope), and the secret esoteric symbols have been gradually emerging from their shells.
However, the guardians of these teachings have really no better idea of what they mean than any of the rest of us. The esotericists have interpreted these symbols, it is true, but these interpretations are more a reflection of their modern spiritual values than those of the ancients themselves. Many might disagree with this view, but I start with this as my initial premise.

In DarkStar19 I began an examination of Alchemy and showed how a standard astrological interpretation of this esoteric school of thought leaves a lot to be desired.
I will soon release alchemical images that show clearly the role of Nibiru as the Messianic Star, or the Dark Sun.
On this page I will show more of the alchemical images (1), but with the onus upon Freemasonry, another secret society that appears to hold promise for this research. This 16th Century image (right), for instance, seems to show a red fiery globe, among a field of 7 stars (its moons?), between the Sun and Luna (2).
Clutching this globe, the alchemist appears to be moving onto solid ground, perhaps even moving between planets...Note how the coronal discharge of the red orb is swept back from the Sun, as one would expect when the brown dwarf's coronal discharge interacts with the Solar Wind.
This is the origin of the appearance of the Winged Disc during Nibiru's perihelion passage.

The Blazing Star

The Freemasons have a tremendous interest in a 'Blazing Star' that is said to represent Sothis, or Sirius.
They have this Star motif placed in prominent places in their Temples, or Lodges. Many of their rituals are derived from Isian rites, and ancient Egyptian symbols feature strongly in the Craft, even though many of their degrees are actually Mosaic, or sometimes Christian, in character.
There is emphasis placed upon the appearance of a bright light in the darkness, derived from the 'Black Rite', described by Isis in 'The Virgin of the World'. This celestial entity known as the 'Night' "weaves her web with rapid light though it be less than Sun's" (3).

Combine this with the Freemason's worship of the Divine Being as represented by a 'bright, shining light in the East' that breaks through the darkness of the Lodge, and one can begin to piece together a common strand. Although connected with Sirius, this light is an altogether different entity.

The alchemical image shown here contains Masonic symbols
The five visible planets and the Sun and Luna make up the standard set of planetary symbols, but the rebus is stood upon the alchemical dragon, Azoth, who breathes fire.
He, in turn, lies upon a Winged Disc that is evidently neither the Sun nor Mercury.
Geometrical workings are at play within the disc, in keeping with the other Masonic symbols, and the numbers 4 and 3 appear to hint at that magic number 7 again...

The Equilateral Triangle

The equilateral triangle is an important symbol for Freemasons also.
Matthew Scanlan has described the Triangular Lodge of Rushton in Northamptonshire and links much of the symbolism used within its architecture to alchemy (5).
(I am particularly impressed by a motif of the 'seven eyes of God within a hexagon (sic)' on the building).
The Equilateral Triangle is one of the oldest of the sacred symbols, according to James Churchward, and represents the Trinity or the Triune Godhead:
"Whenever or wherever this symbol is found, in any form of record or inscription, it is either in reference to, or represents, the ancient Trinity and Heaven... The Truine Godhead of the Egyptians consisted of "Shu, Set and Horus" (6).
This image shows a line of Luna, Mercury and Sol. Above them is the equilateral triangle of the Masons containing an Eagle (7).
We are also treated to a red burning orb and seven raindrops (Water and Fire, or seven moons and the brown dwarf Nibiru?)

So the Freemasons have inherited a very ancient series of symbols, and Alchemy demonstrates that this Masonic equilateral triangle has some sort of celestial significance.
It is often shown with an enclosed eye, the 'all-seeing eye of Osiris' according to Churchward, who notes that this combined symbol was often seen "in ancient Catholic churches, over the main altar" (6).
Americans will be very well acquainted with this symbol, as it is part of the Masonic imagery shown on their One Dollar bills.


A witness with a military background and a position of influence within the City of London has come forward and offered Bill Ryan of Project Camelot a view into Illuminati plans for World War III.

Apparently the Illuminati plan to use nuclear and biological weapons to cement their control of the world and reduce the world’s population to a “manageable” size.

The Earth’s spiritual hierarchy and the Galactic Federation have assured us that no nuclear war or any scenario close to it will be allowed to happen. (See 1 for references.)

However, we have seen, from the earthquake in Haiti and the tsunami in South Asia, (2) how much destruction the Illuminati are capable of wreaking on the planet and how, left to their own devices, they woould not hesitate to desolate it to ensure control. It is necessary for us to be aware of the Illuminati’s plans and not to co-operate with them, though, as the witness states, not to engage in violent resistance either.
I began my career as a historian with a paper on concepts of Anglo-Saxondom in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The witness postulates that it is a vision of an “Anglo-Saxon” mission that motivates the present cabal.

However, in my view, racial theories are purely self-serving. An “Anglo-Saxon” mission allows for British/American co-operation. But, if it worked better to craft a “Teutonic” or an “Aryan” vision, the cabal, I believe, would do so.

Towards the end, the witness shares his knowledge of the intervention of benevolent ETs. There are many papers on this site and on its companion (3) that discuss the 2012 scenario which the SHGF are propelling us towards, with the help of their Earth allies.
There is no reason to become afraid based on what you read here. But there is good reason to become informed.
“B” refers to Bill Ryan of Project Camelot and “W” refers to the anonymous City of London witness.
BILL RYAN (B): I want to thank you for coming forward with what was immediately clear to me, once I’d read your written debrief, that you have some highly significant information that needs to be shared. And it’s our job at Project Camelot to assist you in reaching people who are aware enough to understand what you’re saying, why it’s important, and to put it in perspective with other information that they may have.
And to introduce all of this, I wonder if you could say what it is that you’re prepared to say on record about your background, about your history… just in general what you think is okay to share about how it is that you’ve actually been positioned to get a hold of the information that you’re going to be reporting.

【本報綜合報道】鯊魚的鰭和軟骨含有豐富蛋白質等成分,據稱有強壯骨骼及治療關節炎等功效,不過,美國科學家測試七種鯊魚的魚鰭,發現含有高濃度神經毒素β- 甲氨基-L-丙氨酸(簡稱BMAA),與老年癡呆症和葛雷克氏症患者腦部中發現的神經毒素相關。科學家認為,此神經毒素可能危害食用者健康。有關研究刊於 《海洋藥物》期刊。

美國邁阿密大學對佛羅里達州海域的鯊魚進行研究,從黑吻真鯊、黑鰭礁鯊、窄頭雙髻鯊、牛鯊、大雙髻鯊、檸檬鯊和護士鯊等七種活鯊魚身 上,取出小型魚鰭樣本,發現含有BMAA,濃度由每毫克一百四十四至一千八百三十八納米克。研究人員指BMAA與阿茲海默症和葛雷克氏症患者腦中發現的神 經毒素相關,而且兩者濃度相若。


專家擔心進食鯊魚肉、軟骨等可能危害健康,而鯊魚食品不只在於魚翅羹,亦有製成其他鯊魚補給品,故對此感到憂慮。研究人員希望 研究結果有助勸阻宰鯊行動。阿茲海默症是老年癡呆症一種,而葛雷克氏症又稱肌萎縮性脊髓側索硬化症,因中樞神經系統內控制隨意肌的運動神經元退化所致。早 前有研究指,食用含此神經毒素的關島食果蝙蝠與大腦退化症有關。

為了避免化學添加物對健康造成的影響,消費者刻意選購一些產品以代替高度加工的食品,不幸的是,許多看似健康的選擇通常也含有速食等食品中同樣有的 添加物及味精。這些化學物質添加在食物中是為了以減少生產成本、延長保存期限來增加食品業者的利潤,並讓食品看起來更吸引人,以促進銷售。
製作牛油只需奶油或發酵奶油 (cultured cream) ,一些產品可能還含有鹽,但是你會很訝異的看到天然香料、檸檬酸及紅木等添加物也標列在許多產品中。天然香料經常添加於無鹽的產品當中,以增添風味;紅木 有時則會添加在使用劣質奶油製成的牛油當中,以增加色澤。務必詳讀標示,並且謹慎選擇有機的產品。
製做酸奶所需的成分只有發酵奶油,但一些市售酸奶的成分標示首先出現的卻是牛奶。由於奶油比牛奶濃稠,因此這些產品通常必須添加鹿角菜 膠 (carrageenan) 、改造食物澱粉及關華豆膠 (guar gum) 等添加物來增加濃稠度;因為同樣原因,低脂及無脂酸奶也普遍使用添加物。
以吃鬆餅糖漿來展開一天顯然不是一種健康的飲食方式,但當你知道下列事實可能會更驚訝 ─ 市售的糖漿實際上大多不含楓糖,反而含有高果糖玉米糖漿混合人工香料、色素及六偏磷酸鈉 (hexametaphosphate) 等添加物。購買糖漿之前務必仔細閱讀成分標示,確定產品中只有純楓糖漿;儘管純楓糖漿價格會比玉米糖漿製成的仿冒品昂貴,但因為製造 1 加侖的純正楓糖需要 40 至60 加侖的樹液,價差是可以理解的。
