Death Clock

2020.11.25 00:20 FREDDEGRAN Death Clock

DEATH CLOCK
I came home and found both my mother and father brutally murdered, hacked into pieces.
I was of course shocked and surprised, but I should not have been, after all today was 2020/11/24 and the clock was 19.30.
I was looking at our old family heirloom, an old clock that showed yeamonth/day and time, but not the current time.
Oh no, the death clock showed you the exact moment of your death.
I had never really believed in it, but my father had.
It had precited the exact time of death of my grandfather and grandmother, both dead in a car crash.
I had always suspected that my grandfather went insane with his obsession with the death clock and killed himself and my grand mother at the time it was predicted.
But now the clock was two for two.
And there was no way in hell that my father had murdered both mom and himself and after that hacked them both to pieces.
I walked over to the clock and pressed the button like my father had instructed me to all those years ago.
All the pointers began spinning around, quickly and a strange song began to play.
After a while all the pointers stopped and indicated a date and time. 2100/11/24 19:30.
Whooooa.
Another eighty years from now, I was only twenty years old at the time. I would live to be one hundred. The world was my oyster.
2025/11/24
I have been living large, gambling at casinos, doing tons of drugs knowing I would never overdose and die like so many friends I have lost in these short years. I started playing Russian roulette, you know two guys one six shoot revolver loaded with a single bullet, you take turns holding it against your own heads and pull the trigger to see which one of you will be the unlucky one to lose and shot your own head off.
Of course, it was never me.
Mob bosses started to take an interest in how lucky I was they wanted to learn how I cheated the systems.
But I could not teach them. I got a few punches in my face and then I agreed to do some dirty work for them.
This fit me like a hand in a glove.
Armed bank robbery shot outs with other gangs, I even worked as a hit man a few times.
2030/11/24
Another seventy years to live, I am working for the Renai`s one of the five crime families of Italian mobsters in New York.
We are settling the score with Don Mario Corleone an opposing crime boss, I think he might have been behind the murder of my parents. We already killed his brother Luigi.
Me and Johnny was ducking behind cover, but as usual I remembered I had no need to, I rushed out into the fire of shoots friendly and hostile both, none of them would graze me anyway.
I emptied my six shooter magnum revolver straight into the faces of six men, I was no great shot, never had been but at point blank range it was impossible to miss… well for me anyway.
Anyone trying to shoot me would somehow miss, have their weapon click like it was empty or even explode in their hands.
Johnny always told me I had the devils luck, as far as I was concerned he might be just right.
Johnny and the boys came running after me , the Corleones shot down half of my guys with fire from tommy guns, the famous machinegun used by old school gangsters and bank robbers.
Johnny walked to me covered in blood and guts and even some brain matter from his fallen friends.
I just stood there smoking a Cuban cigar, reloading my revolver with out a care in the world.
- Wow you really DO have the devils luck boy! Johnny told me.
- Yes, me and the boys never understood how you could just rush into enemy fire like that , and look at you now, standing here with half our boys dead without a care in the world, smoking like it is nothing to you. Some of the boys are saying you made a deal with a demon. Freckled Frankie told me.
I had to watch myself and not let anybody learn about the death clock, sometimes when I was out partying with girls I talked to much, when I was high and drunk. I had to kill a few just to make sure they did not talk. It was nothing girls come and go in the big apple. But I could not let Johnny or Renai find out.
Freckled Frankie sure as hell did NOT have they devils luck, a ginger bastard with red hair and freckles all around his face, born of a prostitute mother that had been found in the gutter, Frankie had not even went to her funeral. He was beaten everyday buy his alcoholic stepdad and beaten up even more in school.
If Frankie`s luck kept up with him, I have nothing to worry about he would be dead sooner or later and would have no chance to open his ugly mouth and yap about it.
We butchered every last one of Corleone`s men lost most of ours, but I did not give a fuck, having the devils luck makes one a bit narcissistic and nihilistic I suppose.
It was me Johnny, Frankie and Mario Corleone for the final showdown.
Corleone took out a revolver and shot straight at my head, somehow it swerved and went into Frankie`s left eye instead instantly killing him. Takes care about that problem I thought to myself.
Mario wanted to try again, and this time the revolver exploded in my hand. Me and Johnny spent the next few hours cutting of his body parts, fingers, toes, feet, legs, hands and arms.
We asked repeatedly who killed my parents.
Always the same answer, Renai. That fucking big nose motherfucker. I would fuck him up really good.
I putted Corleone out of his misery. Bullet through the brain.
2031/11/24
Spent on year investigating, got to make sure before final confrontation.
All the evidence pointed to him, Mister Alfredo Renai, the big nose mobster, my boss was responsible for my parents murders.
It went just like last time, Johnny cut him up and Renai admitted, my parents owed him money, so he had a hit man sent for them. Johnny threw Renai out of the penthouse window on the top floor of a skyscraper, not much was left of Renai after he hit the pavement, he now looked like the meat he liked to eat with his spaghetti.
-Nice work! I told Johnny and I took over as the next crime boss.
Sure some guys did not like it and tried to kill me, but they had no success, and I let Johnny cut them up, burn them, hang em high, drown them or whatever he could come up with.
I only wished he did not kill big nose Renai so soon, I wanted to know the name of the hitman he had sent to kill my parents off.
We payed the cops of like we always did for the murders.
The never came looking my boys up.
The next few years a bloody gang war broke out in the city, tons of shootings and explosion and murder.
But I still had the devils’ luck.
2040/11/24
I was now ruler of the ONLY crime family in New York.
All opposition had been wiped out. I had another sixty years to live. Sometimes I wondered if I should use my power for good.
Like superman, spiderman or batman.
It was a funny and strange thought.
I guess it was to late for that anyway.
Johnny came into my office with a smile on his face.
-I found your parents killer!
-Really, who was it?
-Me of course you dumb fuck, he punched my face with brass knuckles, crushing my nose.
I pulled up my revolver and tried to shot his face of, but it exploded in my hand leaving me with no fingers.
-Ha,ha I used your stupid clock at your parents’ house you can’t kill me.
Oh no. This was not good. I must have talked to much again
And now he knew.
-Well, maybe I cannot kill you, but you can’t kill me either. I punched him with my left fist.
-Oh, believe me I don’t intend to. He broke my left arm. Then cut my tongue out, chopped of my tongue, dick and balls, ears, nose, legs, arms and cut out my eyes.
I was now limbless, blind and almost def. He threw me out of the window.
2041/11/24
Johnny is visiting the hospital as he those every day, he pays to keep my alive, the nurses and doctors want to pull my plug, but unfortunately I know they never will, I got fifty nine years left after all. The doctors and nurses think I am just a vegetable but I am aware somehow Johnny seems to know this.
He comes here everyday to tell me about the women he had sex with, he wish he could show me but sadly I am blind, he tells me about my old friends and how he has found them and murdered them, about my old girlfriends how he fucked them and raped them, beaten them, killed them. And I can do nothing about it.
Sometimes he plays recordings so I can hear them scream.
He tells me he will live for another sixty years. He knows I have fifty nine years so he can come here everyday for the rest of my so called life to torment me, fifty nine years.
He laughs at how stupid I was, the clock just shows you that you cannot die but you CAN get hurt.
I wish I could scream but I have no tongue, no voice.
And I am going to be like this for another fifty nine years.

2020.11.24 16:07 Perseuss_Andromeda A pitch for a Cloverfield videogame

Hi guys I’m a big fan of this franchise since 2008, and I’ve been thinking (for fun) the plot of a videogame that adapts each of the three movies to date, hope you enjoy!

Title: Cloverfield Multiverse

Intro: It’s 2040, a large invasion of the Cloverfield monsters (with different sizes) has turned Earth into a wasteland, the nations have disappeared and last remaining survivors live inside a Bunker. A group of scientist develop a special machine called “The Harvester”, a dimensional portal that can transport only one human being to four different universes.


Main Character: Your name is Dr. Jeffrey Jacobs, a 30 year old professional huntsman raised in this apocalyptic wasteland (he’s like a cross between Kyle Reese from Terminator and Mel Gibson’s Mad Max).

Objective: You will travel to four different timelines, and try to get four special macguffins called: MOTH (Multi-Dimensional Operational Technology Harvester), What is this exactly? A battery developed by TAGRUATO Company but they only made one (in theory), so for that case we must travel to four timelines in which one of this special batteries was registered.

Scenarios:
1) New York (2008): set in the same moment of the first movie, you must look for the apartment of Doctor Reeves, an Ex Tagruato employee that robbed one of the MOTH devices. You start in the middle of Brooklyn Bridge and must try to go on a run to his apartment on Midtown West Hilton

Level 1: You start at Brooklyn Bridge (minutes before the attack shown in the movie), your first task is to search for a guy called Teddy Hansen in the middle of the crowd. (Teddy was an infiltrated at TAGRUATO Co. and has the information of Dr. Reeves’ exact placement). He will help yourself but couldn’t accompany you. The bridge is attacked and you must escape.

Level 2: You must get to Midtown Manhattan but the place is full of vandals and robbers that will try to attack you.
Your weapons: a crowbar, a baseball bat.

Level 3: You are caught in the middle of a fight between the monster and the U.S Army, you must get through the ongoing fire (side note: Rob, Hud, Lilly and Marlena have a cameo and can be seen a few meters from the place) and take shelter to a Subway Station.

Level 4: Here you must get through the metro tunnels, must must cover 3000 meters. BUT the monster’s parasites attack you. You must run, find a secret passage and fight the creatures.
Each time you kill a parasite you will get 300 points.
Weapons: Crowbar, Baseball Bat, a revolver handgun (unlocked if you get 1200 points). They are not so easy to kill and make sure they don’t bite you.

Level 5: Militaries save you, but you can’t stay with them or beg for help (they won’t believe you). So you must run from the basement (try to be fast, or they will shoot you).

Level 6: You get to Midtown West Hilton, the building has almost collapsed (it looks like Beth’s apartment in the movie). You must go on the 30 floor building and go through the roof (try to not fall down). Once there you have only two minutes to locate the MOTH device (it’s inside a secret box so you must search for a key). While the Monster approaches, you finally get the device and escape. Three more parasites attack you (but you still have the crowbar, the baseball bat but the handgun hasn’t only 5 bullets).

Level 7: You are on the streets again, your only chance of escaping Manhattan is by helicopter, you go to the place seen in first movie (Rob, Lilly, Beth and Hud have a cameo in the background). You find a helicopter alone, there is no soldiers surrounding the area, so you take the vessel, and escape. The Monster is Being attacked but you have only two minutes to get out of the Island. But be careful, the creature could jump and attack you.

1) If the vessel falls down: You crash at Central Park, the Monster arrives and eats you. Game Over.
2) If you get out of Manhattan in time: the Island is destroyed, you get to a Staten Island heliport. Once there you use your special HARVESTER device and Scenario 2 begins.

Scenario 2:
2) Baton Rogue (2016): Howard Stambler was an ex employee at Tagruato Co’s subsidiary Bold Futura until he became mentally unstable after intercepting proofs of a conspiracy involving an alien invasion. You’re transported to his underground bunker, a fire is about to consume the place (this is the moment Michelle tries to escape).

Level 1: You have three minutes to get to his office and find out the MOTH device on a desk (it has a cage so you must find a key). Once you get it, now you must escape through the air tubes but be careful, an angry and half burned Howard Stambler (in a psychotic mode armed with a knife) tries to attack you.
Once you escape (you have three minutes to crawl on the air tubes) the bunker explodes.

Level 2: You see Michelle in the background, she sees you and escapes by car. The biomechanic vessel arrives, so you must take shelter inside Howard’s house. You find a machete so you can fight the four legged creature the vessel sends after yourself.

Level 3: You defeat the creature, now you must escape to Leslie’s car (the blonde woman that tried to get inside the Bunker in the movie). The Vessel uses some tentacles but you arrive at the car on time. Once there you escape on the road.

Level 4: The Vessel chases you, but your only choice is to activate the HARVESTER, the only problem, it activates in two minutes so you must go full Toretto with the car in order to not get caught by the vessel, be careful with the obstacles in the highway.

Once you escape, scenario 3 begins:

Scenario 3:
1) The Cloverfield Station (2028): you are inside the spacecraft of Cloverfield Paradox (this is a few minutes after Hamilton and Schmidt arrive at Earth at the end of the movie). This time you won’t search for a MOTH device, but for a battery inside the SHEPARD that can activate the MOTH. But won’t be that easy, your sole presence inside the ship breaks all the physical laws there, so a bunch of paranormal activities

Level 1: Volkov (the Russian) appears as a zombie trying to kill you. You must escape through the labyrinth like hallways. You only have a hammer to defend yourself. Once you get to the core ship, you get the battery.

Level 2: some telekinetic Force makes some cables to act if they have life, so those things try to kill you. No weapon can harm those thing but there is one choice: get to the pod area and escape.

Level 3: While you escape, there is a problem, a huge Cloverfield Monster awaits in the surface, your teleportation device must activate on time, for that reason you have only two minutes to press buttons and be sure the device reaches a 100%.

Fourth Scenario:
4) Back on the Cloverfield 2008 timeline:
This time you are transported to the CHUAI Station, The place is about to collapse thanks to the Cloverfield monster attack (as seen in the Viral Marketing videos). In this exact place, a Tagruato Co. scientist was developing a MOTH device.

Level 1: The stations has four minutes to collapse, so you must get to the Special Projects area and find the device. Be careful with the debris. Once you get there, you will find the scientist called Dr. Goddard, he will warn you to not trust in Dr. Yashida.

Level 2: You must escape to the boats and get outside the monster attacks. Once you are safe, you will be able to go back to 2040.

Final Scenario:
You are back with the group of scientists, and a final revelation is made: these scientists worked for Tagruato Co. all this time, the representatives lived inside a bunker and where the responsibles for the Apocalypse, they created the dimensional portal that brought all the monsters to Earth. Their motives: make a new worldwide order where only the rich investors of Tagruato Co. will live while the rest of the world on surface perishes.
Why did they need the MOTH devices? They want to activate a portal that could retrieve all the monsters to where they come from, once their goal (kill 90% of humanity) is done
Of course you are not ok with this and escapes.
Enemies: security guards
Weapons: a shotgun

After defeating the guards, you use a bomb to kill the scientists, not before loading all the info in a pen drive.

After getting to the surface, you still have the MOTH devices and the pen drive. So now the future of humanity is at your hands.

What do you think?

2020.11.24 03:32 JessieBates What happened to our elections when in 2015- Blue and Red met with R . Scott Pastrick who; "...serves as a Director of Civitas Group, LLC. AND serves on the Board of Directors of the International Foundation for Election Systems...."

EDIT - post stuck at zero but my karma total is going up 🤔 kinda weird or nah?
With all the partisan politics going on, I feel compelled to share some of my research from 2016/Wikileaks
This is regarding a lunch meeting from 2015 which is BEFORE the fucked Dem primaries and 2016 election.
Please pay attention to the part where head blue guy is casually meeting with a red team member and both are entertaining some narrative spinning/information/vote guiding mutha fuckas 🤨
Of note, are Mike Morell and R. Scott Pastrick; their past employment and current positions (as of the 2015 date).
Specifically, Pastrick; who “...serves as a Director of Civitas Group, LLC. Mr. Pastrick serves on the Board of Directors of the International Foundation for Election Systems...."
I know some will balk at the Flynn stuff but more importantly why would he being meeting with Podesta; the head of blue team in 2015?!
TL/DR per 2016 research with included sources “It’s one big club and YOU AIN’T IN IT.”
Red and blue?
Nah, 99 v 1.
So a Puppet Master walks into a bar....
So a Puppet Master; an ex-CIA agent; a pro-Russian retired General; a retired General stripped of his security clearance and spared of a DOJ investigation by the President; retired Admiral employed by the climate killing BP conglomerate and a guy with Clinton ties, with an IT cyber security/cloud consulting firm and who can bring thousands of technical experts in order to "improve the electoral process" walk into a bar....what and who do they talk about??!!!
So Podesta the puppet master had a meeting with an Admiral, two Generals, Mike Morell, and R. Scott Pastrick??https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/9772
Mike Morell was twice (2011 and 2012 to 2013) the acting CIA Director who "is a proponent of the CIA's use of enhanced interrogation techniques which many consider to be torture, and is also a proponent of the CIA's targeted killings by drones." and "Since November 2013, he has been a Senior Counselor to Beacon Global Strategies LLC...." [*** "...a strategic advisory firm specializing in International Policy, Defense, Cyber, Intelligence, and Homeland Security." http://bgsdc.com/about-bgs/ ***] and who "...managed the staff that produced the Presidential Daily Briefings for President George W. Bush. Morell was Bush’s briefer during the September 11, 2001, attacks, and has been quoted as saying, "I would bet every dollar I have that it’s al Qaeda." and "In an August 2016 op-ed for The New York Times, Morell endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Stating that he was registered with neither the Democratic nor Republican parties, and had always been silent about his political preferences...." and "...responded to allegations that his current employer, Beacon Global Strategies, "was co-founded by former associates of Mrs. Clinton", by saying it was a non-partisan firm and that he had spoken out "entirely on [my] own, with no other consideration given any thought."[24] and "In a subsequent interview with Charlie Rose, taped in August 2016, Morell called for making Russia and Iran "pay a price" for their involvement in Syria by killing their military personnel.[25][26] He added that he wanted to bomb Syrian government offices.[25] Regarding President Bashar al-Assad, Morell argued "I want to go after those things that Assad sees as his personal power base. I want to scare Assad."[26]"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Morell
AND
R. Scott Pastrick who "...serves as the President and Chief Executive Officer at Prime Policy Group (formerly, BKSH & Associates Worldwide)." and "...serves as a Director of Civitas Group, LLC. Mr. Pastrick serves on the Board of Directors of the International Foundation for Election Systems...." http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=38703148&privcapId=8160247 International Foundation for Electoral Systems - "Over the past three decades, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) has brought together thousands of experts to provide technical assistance to election officials, empower the underrepresented to participate in the political process, and apply field-based research to improve the electoral cycle." http://www.ifes.org/experts and Prime Policy Group "....our team of political, legislative and regulatory experts are trusted counselors to corporations, associations, domestic and foreign governments, and political candidates.

"It serves clients in the United States and internationally..." http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/snapshot.asp?privcapId=7472279 Pastrick - Senior Adviser- Hillary Clinton for President 2007 – 2008 (1 year) At- Large Member - Democratic National Committee 2004 – 2008 At-Large Member - Democratic National Committee 2000 – 2004 Treasurer Democratic National Committee, Democratic National Committee 1995 – 1997 Served as the Democratic National Committee Treasurer for the re-election of President Bill Clinton, Officer & Executive Committee Leadership, Democratic National Committee 1995 – 1997 Chairman Presidential Gala; President Bill Clinton, Democratic National Committee 1993 – 1993 Senior Advisor Clinton for President - Congressional Affairs William J. Clinton for President Committee 1991 – 1992
I've got a few questions...like....
What in the holy H*LL are these guys talking about in June/July 2015??
Was Pastrick via his Civitas role giving Podesta a "cybersecurity assessment" and advising him about "cyber security and specialized IT (data analytics and cloud), government services and civilian agencies, critical infrastructure protection..." for her and her emails??!!
Was Pastrick also advising Podesta via his IFES role to bring "...together thousands of experts to provide technical assistance to election officials, empower the underrepresented to participate in the political process, and apply field-based research to improve the electoral cycle..." for her??!! (His inclination for all things Clinton is pretty obvious by his resume)
Is General Flynn this guy?? "...described by the Washington Post as "not hostile to Russia,"[21] while Michael Crowley of Vox described Flynn as having "an odd affection for Russia and its authoritarian government."[22]" and "...appearing semi-regularly as an analyst on RT, a Kremlin-aligned English-language news outlet.[21][22][23] In 2015, Flynn attended a gala dinner in Moscow in honor of RT, where he was seated next to the Russian president Vladimir Putin.[23]" and "....consulted regarding national security by candidates Carly Fiorina, Scott Walker, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump,[25] Flynn was asked in February 2016 to serve as an adviser to the Trump campaign.[26] In July 2016, it was reported he was being considered as Trump's running mate; Flynn later confirmed that he had submitted vetting documents to the campaign and was willing to accept the Republican Vice-Presidential nomination if chosen.[27][28]..." Soooo doesn't that mean that Podesta met in June/July/August of 2015 with a PRO-Russia retired US General who had just had dinner with Putin in Moscow in that same year??!! (Holy Russian connections, Batman!!) and Why is Podesta meeting with a Pro-Repub, Pro-Russian guy who was advising Repub candidates on Security Issues and being vetted for Donnie's VP spot?? (Talk about working both sides of the aisle) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_T._Flynn
General Cartwright - Who now seems to be employed with Center for Strategic and International Studies https://www.csis.org/people/james-e-cartwright and who was a "former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, lost his clearance earlier this year. It was an indicator that that government officials might, in some way, consider his ongoing access to secrets a national security risk while he was under investigation by the Department of Justice for possibly leaking sensitive information about the Stuxnet computer virus..." http://foreignpolicy.com/2013/09/24/obamas-favorite-general-stripped-of-his-security-clearance/ and who "...Analysts are questioning whether the White House is protecting one of its inner-circle members in a leak investigation, especially given the Obama administration’s demonstrated willingness to prosecute and imprison lower-level government employees for providing classified information to the press. Retired Marine Corps Gen. James “Hoss” Cartwright was vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and somewhat of a White House fixture as a close military adviser to President Obama. For over a year, he reportedly has been the target of a Justice Department criminal investigation. He is suspected of leaking to The New York Times highly classified details of a U.S. cyberwarfare program against Iran and its quest for nuclear weapons. Gen. Cartwright played a critical role in the covert action, whose weapon was a cyberworm called Stuxnet and whose code name was “Olympic Games.” The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the probe has come to a halt because the White House fears prosecution would force the administration to disclose secret sources and methods. Despite the slowdown, Mr. Obama has been the most aggressive president in history in hunting down and prosecuting government personnel who leak. In six years, the Justice Department has prosecuted nine leakers: One Army soldier; two National Security Agency personnel; two FBI employees; one State Department contractor; two former CIA officers; and, just recently, one...." http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/ma12/obama-protects-generals-in-leak-probes-while-low-l/
Interesting that Podesta is meeting with someone that in March of 2015 Obama somehow spared from DOJ criminal prosecution for "leaking" classified information or is it just me??
and
Admiral Bowman who is currently an Independent Non-Executive Director at BP http://www.bp.com/en/global/corporate/about-bp/board-and-executive-management/the-board/admiral-frank-bowman.html and the Center for Climate and Security Advisory Board https://climateandsecurity.org/2013/08/23/admiral-frank-skip-bowman-joins-the-center-for-climate-and-security-advisory-board/
So a Puppet Master; an ex-CIA agent; a pro-Russian retired General; a retired General stripped of his security clearance and spared of a DOJ investigation by the President; retired Admiral employed by the climate killing BP conglomerate and a guy with Clinton ties, with an IT cyber security/cloud consulting firm and who can bring thousands of technical experts in order to "improve the electoral process" walk into a bar....what and who do they talk about??!!!

Yet the difference, of course, is that the company is making a massive profit from the men making fools of themselves, and while lots of ladies are earning money out of the schemes also, it is unclear that it is helpful to them in the longer term. Anastasia International, while not straight conspiring in the frauds, runs a very profitable business version that allows them to grow. While actual and long-term liaisons do sometimes form through the site, regularly it only serves to boost the concentric circles of skepticism, dissatisfaction and also heartbreak for all entailed. Anastasia urges that it weeds out scams whenever it discovers them, and also has actually banned some women from the website. It also states it will certainly reimburse customers that succumb to scams, and provides recommendations on how to prevent them.
Regardless of attempting to find out English as rapid as she could, when she first got here Wilson can not comprehend what her new other half stated to her. Her marital relationship is better now, she states, due to the fact that they can truly talk. italina Wilson had never ever planned to marry an international male whose language she did not speak. Nor did she intend to relocate 6,000 miles far from her family to a country she understood absolutely nothing regarding. She had a really good task in the audit division of a big importer in her indigenous Ukraine. She was also separated, after weding at 21 to a male whom she refers to as "not fit to domesticity". Her ex-husband had a tough time working as well as made points "tough" for her, she says softly before moving on to happier subjects.

After calling a mail-order company, most of Filipina mail-order brides met their spouses by going to "show-ups", a meeting in which a group of Filipina ladies are brought to meet a Korean man that is searching for a spouse. At the show-up the Oriental man selects a bride-to-be from among the group, and in an issue of days they are married. Asian men likewise worked through mail-order firms to discover partners as they functioned overseas in the 1800s. Trick variables establishing the partnership in between movement and also marital relationship were demographics, legal plans, cultural perceptions and modern technology.
📷
Imbalances between the number of offered women and the number of men desiring partners produced a need for immigrant females. As a result of this inequality, a brand-new system of "picture brides" established in mainly male negotiations. In the early 20th century, the establishment of "picture brides" established because of migration constraints. The Japanese-American Key Arrangement of 1907 enabled Japan to approve passports to the spouses of immigrants to America. As migration of single Japanese ladies to America was successfully disallowed, making use of "picture brides" given a system for ready ladies to obtain a ticket to America, while Japanese employees in America can acquire a women helpmate of their own nationality.

Which country has the most Affairs?

This list prepared by the mirror.co.uk shows the countries that are most often cited as having illicit affairs. 1. Thailand 56% But it's Thailand which grabbed the top spot with 56% of the population admitting to being unfaithful. 2. Denmark 46% 3. Italy 45% 4. Germany 45% 5. France 43% 6. Norway 41% 7. Belgium 40% 8. Spain 39% More items•
Listed here are six indications you have actually obtained nice dating rules as well as are prone to make an excellent impression-- and valuables you would possibly require to consider doing in your ukraine brides next day, should you aren't already. We are the pursuers and it gets on us men to stimulate some feeling of destination in the woman we want. There have actually been a number of murders of mail-order brides in South Korea. In June 2013, The Philippine embassy in Seoul reported that it had obtained several issues from Filipinas that have married Korean males via mail-order, frequently coming to be "sufferers of grave misuses". The Philippine police rescued 29 mail-order brides on their means to marry South Korea men whom Principal Superintendent Reginald Villasanta, head of an organised criminal activity job pressure, says were "deceived into promises of an immediate well-off life through marriage with Oriental gentlemen". The ladies were advertised in online and offline "magazines" to South Oriental men.
For the women as well, although hundreds of them earn a living from the rip-offs, it is not a simple emotional burden to bear. Other females were really searching for a young and fascinating partner and wished to leave Ukraine, yet invested hours chatting with senior men in order to make money. I was able to uncover specifically how the rip-offs function because of an opportunity encounter with Alina, among the women entailed, who really felt born down by her collusion in what she called "emotional prostitution". A number of them feature absurd assumptions, obviously, but I am unsure that any person deserves this therapy. Equipped with this info, I was completely expecting to invest a week being offended by unpleasant males taking advantage of susceptible females, as well as there were absolutely a few on the journey whose misogyny got to prize-winning levels. I opted for a firm called Anastasia International, which is no dingy basement procedure, however a significant company with a projected income last year of $140m (₤ 84m). It has countless women in Ukraine and across the globe on its books, readily available for conversations as well as in-person conferences with lonely bachelors throughout the world looking for a spouse.

How much is a Ukraian bride?

An average middle-class, university-educated Thai lady deserves a dowry of 100,000- 300,000 baht. A dowry of a million baht for an uneducated lady of modest means is just ridiculous. Thai dowry prices fall drastically if your bride-to-be has been previously married, already has children, or is not a virgin anymore.
A worldwide marriage company is a service that ventures to present males and females of various nations for the objective of marriage, dating, or communication. Most of these marriage firms are based near ladies in creating nations.

Options For Systems In Ukraine Mail Order Other Halves.

Nevertheless, economic elements are not the only driving aspect for ladies in Asia to go into the mail-order sector. Filipina ladies often went into the mail-order industry in the hope of weding abroad and afterwards funding their family members for migration. Sometimes ladies were recruited based upon their physical appearance, with a focus placed on young people as well as virginity. This is discovered among store companies, the majority of which deal with well-off males from various other Oriental nations. The majority of Eastern mail-order brides originate from the Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, Taiwan, as well as China. The Korea Times reports that annually, thousands of Oriental guys register for matches with Filipina brides with firms as well as by mail order. Based on data from the Oriental government, there are 6,191 Filipinas in South Korea who are wed to Koreans.
Because the collapse of the Soviet Union, large numbers of eastern European women have actually promoted themselves in such a way, mostly from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and Moldova. Men that list themselves in such publications are referred to as "mail-order husbands", although this is a lot less typical. As internet dating has actually gone mainstream over the previous years, Anastasia is attempting to rebrand what was when called the "mail-order bride" market as something modern and modern. This is no longer the protect of seedy and unscrupulous guys looking for vulnerable women from poor backgrounds to work as a longterm sex servant, the marketing suggests. This is "international dating", a way to locate romance without borders. As soon as you solve you are going to offer it a shot, the initial point it is a good idea to do is develop your profile.

Though lots of guys claim they desire a smart, amusing, or moral Russian female, those aren't the search terms they use.

And also, intelligentrussianbrides.com or beautifulrussianbrides.com simply doesn't have the very same ring to it.

Q: Would You Take Into Consideration An Objective For These Ladies To Come To Be A "Bride" To Be The Need To Leave Russia?

Although these marital relationships can be successful, in many cases immigrant wives are maltreated, misunderstood and separated from their Oriental spouses. One technique men use when selecting girls as spouses is "Like a court in an elegance contest, the guy interviews the females, a number of them 20 years younger than he, as well as chooses". The term "mail-order new bride" is both slammed by proprietors of international marriage firms and used by them as an easily well-known term. A mail-order bride-to-be is a female that provides herself in brochures and is chosen by a man for marriage. In the twentieth century, the pattern was mainly towards ladies residing in developing nations looking for guys in more industrialized countries. In the 21st century, the pattern is now based mainly on internet-based gathering place which do not per se certify as mail-order new bride services. The majority of the females listed in the twentieth-century as well as twenty-first-century services are from Southeast Asia, nations of the previous Eastern Bloc and also from Latin America.

Nevertheless, lots of take into consideration the term "mail-order bride-to-be" negative and feel it demeans foreign females by comparing them to commodities to buy and by falsely indicating that, they exercise no judgment over the men they satisfy as well as would certainly wed anyone from a relatively rich country.

Oftentimes nonetheless, sufferers were fed incorrect info regarding the history of their future partner and family members, and endured abuse southern Oriental guys, which brought about "desertion of the marriage house, splitting up and also divorce", Villasanta stated.

2020.11.20 11:06 fresh_geosmin Threshold

I do not like finding myself in unexpected places, but I thought I was at least used to it. But when I woke up in a glass box in another country, I was not prepared.
I woke up on a concrete floor with a bright spotlight hitting me from the ceiling. As I rolled up and squinted, I saw I was in the corner of a room, but due to two thick glass walls, I was confined to an area slightly larger than a very large shower stall. I had no idea where I was or what had happened.
I stood up, dusting my clothes off and looked around. Through the two glass walls I saw only an empty windowless room. I knocked cautiously against the glass. It thudded dully like a wall. I frowned and looked behind me where the other two sides of my little area were formed by the concrete block walls of the larger room. The floor sloped slightly to a small drain in the corner. The glass seemed thick enough to be used for a zoo aquarium. I swallowed down fear as I wondered if this room could be filled with water, and couldn't see the ceiling above me because of the bright spotlight.
"HEI!" I yelled out. My voice sounded like the room muffled it. It didn't seem like anyone would hear me.
My hand went to my pocket for my phone when I realised all my pockets were empty. No phone. No ID. No keys. Where was I?? I tried to remember where I'd been earlier, but my head felt foggy. I remembered going to work, teaching classes. Was that today? I checked my glucose meter, which I change every three days. Still okay, for now.
Moments later someone walked into the room, a stocky looking man with reddish hair under a baseball hat, wearing jeans and an open flannel over a t-shirt. His eyes were on me and he immediately walked up to the glass wall.
I found myself taking a step back. I didn't recognise him at all.
"Ah, you're here. Can you hear me?" I heard these English words in a loud and round-vowelled American accent from above my head. I peered up again but still couldn't see anything because of the light. I looked back at the man, and noticed a lapel microphone on his flannel.
He took my looking up as a sign that I did hear him, and he continued. "Great! Listen, I know this is, uh, unusual, but you didn't seem to be getting our emails."
I blinked at him and put my hand to my temple. "Emails?" I asked. I looked around the room again. "Where am I?"
The man gave a smile. There must've also been a microphone somewhere in the box. "Welcome to South Dakota! We've been trying to get you here for some time now. The Institute really needs your help. We brought you here," he said. I was in the US??
"Institute..." I muttered, remembering the rule I made in my email client to dump everything from a particular address domain directly into the spam. An organisation which had been sending me mails to my work address about a topic I never breathed a word to anyone about, not even my wife.
I frowned at the man and started shaking my head. "I want nothing to do with this," I said.
The man shrugged. "We don't have anyone else to ask at this point. Not for what we need. Not that can do what you do."
I kept shaking my head. "But I don't do that. There are people, they do it as, as..." I was fumbling for my English phrases, "as a service. For money. They do whatever you want them."
"Yeah but, for money, as you said."
I held my arms out. "If you can put me in box, you can put them in boxes! I need to get home!"
"They can't Travel," he replied. I stared at him.
"And I do not!" I insisted.
"But you can, and we need that. We need that right now," he said, looking serious.
I covered my eyes with my hands tiredly. "Please. Send me home."
"You also have been working on nuclear magnetic resonance and molecular modelling. We need that expertise too."
"Lots of people work on that. It's everywhere," I argued. "There are people at every large manufacturer doing same work."
The man's face became more serious. "Listen, this is what's going on. Have you ever run into the Big Cold out there? You know what I mean? Well it's moving around. And it's been visiting us." He pointed his finger at the ground in front of him in emphasis.
I sighed. I thought I knew what he meant, though it "visiting us" made no sense to me.
"Thought you'd need some encouragement," the man said. He pulled something out of a pocket. I thought I recognised it from a distance, but went right up to the glass as he held it up. My daughter. A school photo of my five-year-old angel, in this strange man's hand. I pressed my hands against the glass.
"Where are they?" I demanded, trying not to panic. Please, I thought, these people don't have my family.
"They are completely safe," the man said calmly, "and they are not home."
I pounded the glass, which made almost no sound but a small slap noise. My wife! My kids! What the hell was going on?!
"Work with us. We're trying to stop this Big Cold thing, some way to trap it, and we can't do it without someone like you," the man said again.
"Please," I said again, but I had no hope for it. The man shook my angel's face in front of me. "We're the ones asking you, professor, to please assist us with this."
I stared down at my shoes on the concrete, where the glass wall met it, my hands still pressed against the glass. What could I do? Even if I somehow got out of this room, I had no passport, no money, no way to get home. I didn't have my test pack or insulin either. How did they bring me here? Just the idea of being in the US was nerve-wracking. While I once entertained the idea of visiting New York one day, the country was in such a state that I wouldn't feel safe travelling there. Yet now, here I was, and I didn't know where they had my family.
I looked up and into the face of the man on the other side. Did he have people he cared about? Did he know how this felt? I saw desperation in his eyes. And fear. "Help us," he repeated.
I sighed again and let my forehead rest against the glass. "Okay," I said. "Okay."
"Yeah?" the man asked with a look.
I raised my head and stepped back from the wall. "I will do... whatever it is. Just, just... don't hurt them." I gave the man a hard look. "And don't tell them."
I was a step away from the glass walls but jumped back further when they started to quickly slide down towards the ground, eventually becoming flush with the floor as if they'd never been there. I stood frozen in the middle of what used to be the glass room, staring at the floor.
"Hey, yeah, that's one way to let you out without a door," the man said. "Welcome."
"Hm," I said with a sigh, rubbing my eyes. This was how I started working on the problem with thresholds.
The first time I accidentally crossed a threshold, in the way nobody else did, I was stepping into the metro years ago. It was my "internship semester" where many students of my class went abroad, and I was in a large bustling city with a decent public transport system.
It had taken about a month of daily use before the language, timing and general surroundings were no longer novel and I became a more automatic traveller. So when I stepped in that day, I was not paying attention to anything but my music player (iPods were the rage back then), on my way back to my student room after classes.
I was standing only a few steps away from the edge of the platform, and the carriage slid into the edge of my view as I changed a song on my player. The doors opened, nobody stepped out, and I took a step in. But something went wrong.
I was already fully inside before I was overcome with this certainty that I was in the wrong train. I looked up, suddenly aware of my surroundings and how everything looked a little... yellow. Dirty sepia. The inside of the carriage I had just stepped into was worn, stained, and somehow a little off. I whirled around just in time to miss the door closing. The light coming in looked pale and yellow. My heart raced in a sudden panic. I was on the wrong line!
But I couldn't be. All of them on this platform went to my destination. It was just a few stops away. I stood there a moment, trying to figure out what I'd done wrong. Logically, this could not be the wrong line. Then I turned and looked into the rest of the carriage and my heart stopped.
The inside was a standing-room area, with fold-down seats lining the side walls, though this time of day wasn't quite yet busy. But some of the seats were occupied, and not by people.
I gaped as I saw several dark areas, shaped vaguely like people, but seemingly made up of jiggling squiggly black lines. Hundreds of tiny scribbles, moving randomly in three dimensions, making up man-shapes. Some of them were hunched over as if looking at something in their... hands? But others were staring forward with two empty round white spheres instead of eyes, like milky marbles. I was terrified.
After the brief darkness as we went through a tunnel, I saw several of the things were moving agitatedly. I thought I recognised the next station through the door window, but the shapes were moving towards me quickly and I backed away from the door to get away from them.
I plastered myself against the opposite door, which didn't open, while several dark squiggle-shapes clustered by the station-side door. The train finally stopped, the door opened, and the shapes shuffled out, completely ignoring me. Now they were outside, and I worried about stepping out, but decided I needed to get out of there. Just as I was about to though, a very large squiggle-person came right at me, stepping into the carriage. It stared at me with milky eyeballs. I backed up frantically until I was against the opposite door again, but it shuffled past me towards the main cabin body. It seemed to have completely ignored me. Then the door shut again, locking me in.
The whole time I was just filled not only with terror, but a feeling of wrongness which was so strong it seemed to put me on edge on a different level. I tried to calm down, looking for clues as to what the hell had happened. Everything was off. Sounds were muffled. The air was stuffy, thick, though without a particular smell. The cabin looked several decades old instead of the fairly modern interiors I'd gotten used to. And then I noticed the signs.
There are always signs inside trains and metros, everything from safety notices to advertisements, and only now I realised that the letters in these were distorted. I approached one I knew should say something like "Do Not Lean" on the double doors. Instead, the lines of the message were straight, but bits of letters seemed to be spread randomly along it. I looked at the stickers on the wall to my right, and the text was corrupted.
The train was slowing down again, and this time I was determined to get out before anything blocked my way. Although none of the jittery black shapes came near me this time, I was practically pressing myself against the door and as soon as they parted I nearly fell out onto the platform outside.
The moment I was out, the light brightened and I sucked in a breath of fresh, normal air and stumbled away from the platform edge before spinning around to look back. A completely normal-looking open doorway stood there, and normal-looking people were giving me strange looks as they stepped in. I wanted to warn them, but my voice was stuck as I saw them continue to walk into the main cabin body through the windows. Inside were ordinary people. I whirled around, looking at the whole platform around me. Everything was normal. I recognised I was one stop away from mine. The signs all looked fine; I could read them. People, ordinary people, were still giving me looks as they walked by, and I looked down at myself. My music player was still in my hand. I took several shaking breaths and decided I definitely did not want to get on the next train to my stop. I walked back.
When I got back to my student house, I immediately decided to try the Internet to look up what I'd just experienced. I ended up cancelling my evening plans as I spent almost all night searching everywhere. I even tried several languages. Usually you can find everything in English, it's the lingua franca of the Internet, but I tried others. Ultimately, I tried a language I was pretty terrible in after two semesters of it. I mean, I can get by in a bar, which as a student seemed good enough, but with help of an online dictionary I finally found something. A forum that seemed to discuss other versions of things. I was tired and desperate and made a post in the intro thread, first apologising for my poor language skills, then describing briefly about a place where things looked old and felt wrong, and then continued my search hoping for a reply in the meantime.
Around midnight, someone did reply, in a private message. Just a single question. "Did you go through a door?" This seemed promising. I replied yes, hoping the person was still online.
A few minutes later a reply came. "What do you want to do?"
I thought a bit. "How do I avoid that again," I typed back.
After another excruciating minute came a final reply. A link to a strange web page called "thresholds.htm". It looked like a uni account page, with the tilde in front of a few characters in the URL, and simply filled with text, most of it in English.
It was there that I learned everything. That there were certain people who sometimes, when walking between two places, ended up somewhere else. Some other version of here maybe, nobody was sure. It detailed my experience nearly exactly: the shadowy people-shapes, the feeling of wrongness, the dead air. Apparently, some people had spent much time in these places, exploring it even. This place parallelled the regular world, with generally buildings and streets in the same places. There were several names used for it: the dead world, the shadow world, the other place. People wondered if it was the past, or the future of our time, or something else.
Mostly I was interested in never going there again. The page, which seemed filled with accounts written by other people who had sent mails to the page author, mentioned that all anyone needed to do to enter this world was be in a particular state of mind when crossing a threshold. Threshold meaning mostly doorways, but people mentioned windows and even bridges. Going back over that same threshold brought you back.
I had no idea what my state of mind had been at the metro station, except distracted, so the next several weeks I was a nervous wreck walking around, trying to be hyper-aware of everything whenever I walked through, well, anything. I avoided the metro the first week, walking to the other side of town to get to classes, but eventually my inner laziness and being late once convinced me to try public transport again, and I carefully stepped into a train without issue.
But over the months, it happened again, several times. At some point I practiced different states of mind going back and forth over the entrance to my room, trying to pin down what triggered it. I finally got enough of an idea that I felt almost comfortable getting through life more or less normally. Also, eventually, my natural curiosity did get the better of me, and I did spend time exploring my own city in this other version. The people-shaped creatures seemed to never notice me and wandered about as if going about their day. There were more around public areas during the day than at night. Night in the other version was even deader than the day, dark even where lights were on. I noticed things like there was never any wind and no signs of any animals like birds or dogs. When travelling to another city, I ended up spending at least a few hours checking out its "other" version.
Things continued this way for several years, as life went on. I finished school, met a nice girl who was finishing a psychology degree, and we married. I got sick, ending up in hospital where we discovered I was a type 1 diabetic. I worked a few years at a large medical imaging company, but ended up back at the university, this time teaching and researching. I had moved into biomedical physics, maybe because it seemed like an area that helped people. My wife became a child psychologist. Our little girl came along, and then a few years later our son. Everything seemed fine. I never told anyone about the thresholds.
Then, one time, I was at a conference in a country filled with physicists and mountains. It had been several heavy days, and I was mentally and physically wiped at the end. I wasn't paying attention. I should have been paying attention. I was thinking about being home. Just, really looking forward to walking up to my home, right as I stepped onto the plane.
A greasy jumble of distortion went through and around me, and between one step and the next, I was outdoors. On my street, facing my front door, half-stepped through the metal gate that separates our little garden from the sidewalk. I had my messenger bag across my shoulder, my passport with flight ticket still in my hand, and I stood there frozen, staring at my house. What. The. Hell.
"Tatiiiiiii!" squealed my daughter in delight. Shocked, I looked to see her running towards me. She jumped up at me, barely three, demanding to be picked up, which I did automatically. My brain was whirling. My wife was also in the garden, looking at me with surprise, and I met her gaze with the same expression.
I rushed into the house, to the living room where my son was in his baby playpen. I looked for the clock; it was just five minutes after I was supposed to have boarded the plane. I set my daughter down as my wife came in behind me.
"How are you home early?" she asked me right as I asked her "What's the date today?"
It was the same day, nearly the same time, and I had apparently just gone hundreds of kilometres in nearly an instant. I insisted I needed to get to the airport, and we argued as I tried to keep her from coming with me. She's stubborn so of course she came, telling our sweet neighbour to watch the kids, but I had no answers for her questions. I drove too fast, racing to the airport, and ended up in Arrivals. I tried to explain to someone behind a counter that a flight coming in had luggage of mine for a flight I had checked into but wasn't on. I was a frustrated, confused mess and while eventually things seemed to work out, I couldn't explain to my wife what had happened. I had the ticket, and the airline verified I'd checked in, but I don't know what she really thought. I'm not sure what I really thought. She spent weeks looking at me strangely, and the atmosphere in the house got a little tense for a while.
I wondered what the person behind me in the line to board had seen. Two colleagues from university were on the same flight; we'd been chatting before getting up to board, but we were not next to each other in the line.
I ended up back on the Internet, looking for an explanation for this new horror. Clearly this was related to that other thing, the world through the thresholds. There was nothing, absolutely nothing anywhere, and the last thing I could think of was to look for that faculty page from years earlier, which I did, and sent an email. The old page was gone, replaced with just two paragraphs of contact info and a note about retirement.
The reply I got back almost a week later was that I had done something called travelling, but with a capital T. There were many questions in the email and many warnings. I had a short correspondence with this person, a retired engineer who claimed to have done this very thing before. There had been no terrible consequences, and may have been caused by my successfully avoiding the threshold world so long. At the time of the conference, it had been nearly a year since I had last stepped foot in that other realm.
If all I had to do was visit every few months, I could do that.
It was during those later visits that something new happened. I was doing an evening walk "to clear my head" as I told my family. Just a circle around the neighbourhood, crossing the threshold of our garden gate into the now-familiar still, dead world. By then the wrong was just a shimmering background buzz in the back of my mind. I wondered if there were other people going through these same motions elsewhere, trying to keep the weird at bay.
I was turning a corner in my neighbourhood when something went past me. I can only describe it as a lack of something. A sort of cold void. I blinked and looked behind me and saw the poorly-lit street distort in a wave, as if some giant lens was moving past. It was moving away from me, but I shivered, and hurried home.
On another threshold visit, I had left my university building late after a meeting and was sitting on the steps outside in the dark evening. The bustle of people had vanished, and I looked out at a dingy empty parking strip without the cars I knew were there. There was always a little bit of sound in that world, just muffled, so I noticed a deep silence off to my left. There was that distortion again, moving along the street. I tensed up as it passed in front of me, a sensation of cold and nothing and bent light moving from left to right. After it was off to my right, I stood up warily. It became still, so I hurried back through the building's doorways and back into the real world, shaking.
I didn't know what it was, or why I was suddenly seeing it, and the email I sent to the retired engineer remained unanswered.
The red-haired man who had met me was named Chris, and apparently his Institute (which I am refusing to name here) had gotten the bright idea of trying to find a way to use that dead world for useful purposes. The more adventurous threshold-crossers had managed to bring regular people with them into the other world, and some even Travelled. At the same time, a research team had set up rings of sensors around plywood doorways attached to styrofoam walls, trying to measure what happened as someone walked through. I suppose if you could build some sort of worldwide teleportation service, you could really change the world, but it did not seem like a good idea to me to bring even more people in contact with this place.
The Institute was one of those think-tank type places with strong ideas about how the world should run. I am wary of places like these, places with these strong ideologies that seemed disconnected from what happened to real people. I grew up under an oppressive ideology, lived through a revolution and then its aftermath. There are consequences, and it seems to me that those who would happily bring revolution seem to never stick around once it's started. Or they become other people if they win. Or they were not good people to begin with.
There had originally been three threshold-crossers working at this Institute. Two of them could Travel and had been learning more about doing it, such as how to bring people with them while they did so. Weeks before I woke up in the glass box, they had both vanished into the threshold world within a week of each other, one with another "normal" person who was being brought along. Meanwhile, the doorway sensors had been showing activity during inactive hours. The "Big Cold" as they called it had somehow come into the real world. The tasks they had for me were two: help build a sort of barrier with the laboratory team, and then be bait. Yes, bait.
If I entered the threshold world from their complex, the void entity would almost certainly appear. It seemed to be watching that area. They had another location, the empty fields of Siberia, where a ring of doorways had been constructed. Once they had a working barrier, I would enter into the threshold world, get the void's attention, and lead it to that other location by Travelling to it. The team there would activate the the barrier, trapping it.
I didn't like any of it, but went along. They said my family had been told I was doing emergency work and they needed to stay somewhere else for "security reasons". Aiurea! I knew my wife wasn't dumb enough to believe any of that.
There was also the argument that perhaps something had been awoken in that dead world and this void, this Big Cold, would begin regularly visiting our world. I didn't want that either.
I was given some more clothes to add to what I'd already been wearing, and I slept in a room on the site. They mostly gave me free reign within the complex of buildings, which really was situated in the middle of a desert with only a lonely highway road connecting it to anything. I was also supplied with my brand of short-acting insulin and kits compatible with my pump. I guess the problems with insulin in the US do not matter if you have a wealthy company buying your supplies.
The people I was working with were generally polite and I reminded myself constantly that they were not the ones who took the decision to bring me here. But when I am either frightened or upset, I tend to get sarcastic. A bad trait, but I can't seem to help it. When introduced to the people I would be working with, one asked whether I spoke English as he reached out to shake my hand. "No, not a word," I told him. The relationship never really improved from there.
I asked if it was likely that other groups were working on a similar project. "We're certain of it," Chris said. It seemed they were trying to beat a clock of some sort, to be the first to understand the basics of this other world enough to exploit it.
"Doesn't, ah, doesn't anyone think that maybe you should not do this?" I asked seriously. The group of them looked at me as if I said something very silly. I looked at their other threshold-crosser, a young woman. "Do you not feel that wrong when you visit it?" I asked her. She shrugged and replied that it looked pretty bad and that simply influenced how we felt. How could she possibly ignore that feeling?
Additionally, this organisation was as bad as LinkedIn recruiters in determining what exactly I did for work. What the Institute needed was more of a materials person. My university has a whole department for condensed state and material physics, but this is not mine. I could assist somewhat in the lab, but really didn't add anything.
Almost two long weeks went by.
Then one day, I saw that someone had left their mobile phone in the empty break area. Before I could think, I'd snatched it and found it still unlocked. I quickly stabbed in my wife's number from memory, and with shaking hands held the phone while it made call-noises, desperately praying that nobody would walk in on me. My heart collapsed when I heard, not entirely unexpectedly, the automated "this number is no longer in service" message, and I sunk to the floor in despair. Then, for some reason, I thought to call my own number. I assumed the Institute had my mobile with my other stuff they had taken from me like my keys, so it was a weird idea, but... why not.
I am very happy I tried this, because after just a few moments, her voice was there. It was the most beautiful sound ever. She had my mobile! They had dumped my stuff at the house when they visited to deliver the lie that she needed to grab the kids and leave. I was crying as I tried to quickly explain that I didn't have much time, that she shouldn't call that number back, asking where she was and telling her I loved and missed them all. She said they were staying with her parents in the south, a place I knew well enough. I told her I didn't know what exactly was going on but that I was trying very hard to get home soon. As I ended the call I thought to delete the calls from the history, although I'm sure someone could figure a way to get that back. Wiping the phone off of my sweaty prints, I set it back where I'd found it, grabbed my tea and left trembling a little with joy and fear. My family was not prisoner! And they were not in the US! I felt so much better.
The barrier seemed ready, in that the sensors accompanying it measured attempts by the void to enter one of the thresholds in the lab, and that nothing had made it through. A little flaky and a lot of ifs, but Americans are as impatient as they are ignorant of things like where my country is on a map.
Ai, my excuses. I should be better than this. Anyway, this meant it was time to try the fishing expedition. First, I had to do a practice run. Late in the day I watched a live stream of the people in Russia, sitting in the morning light inside a hexagon-like structure, and used that to hold in my head while walking through one of the lab doorways. The first few times I only ended up walking out the other side, or into the threshold world, but I did finally make it. It was a particular adjustment of thought that seemed to do the trick. I ended up stepping into a circle of plywood walls with several doorways just leading back out into the tundra. The guys there, two Americans and a Russian, greeted me with an enthusiasm I couldn't seem to match myself, but I think I faked it pretty well. Admittedly, a small part of me found the success of literally walking to the other side of the planet in a few steps quite amazing. If it just weren't for all the other things associated with it, like the ever-present feeling of wrong that greasily brushed over me while I did it.
They ran me through what I should do, mainly that as soon as I got there during the real event I should wait until the void followed me to that camp, then get back to the Institute while the three men secured a barrier behind me and got themselves safely out of the ring of doors.
It seemed a silly plan. I admit I was surprised someone hadn't thought of shooting at it. Wasn't that how people dealt with most problems here? I had almost expected my new colleagues to be armed. Laugh at me, but in truth several of them did have firearms, they simply left them in their vehicles for the day. This idea just blows my mind, sorry.
I woke up late on the day of the plan, and was still pretty tired. I made sure I ate well, programmed my pump, and worked hard to seem excited. I had spent the night doing a lot of thinking, then testing, then more thinking.
The Americans seemed pumped, like they thought they were NASA about to do a space launch. They kept asking me how I felt. I was a little excited in fact, and used that to play up enthusiasm for the mission. Before I went to the lab, I darted into the break area and grabbed a few sticks of coffee sugar and stuffed them into my shirt pocket. Today I was wearing the same clothes I had worn when they'd brought me here. Either this would work or not, but either way, I wasn't coming back here.
Instead of just starting, Chris felt he had to say something to everyone. I tuned out the speech, thinking through my ideas which, to be honest, in the light of day seemed a little ridiculous. And then it was time. I took a breath, and everyone watched me walk through that plywood structure and vanish.
I didn't waste time. I grabbed that world's version of the metal coat stand which stood by the entrance, and then I thought about the Russian tundra as I stepped out.
Fresh air and a cool but not cold wind hit me immediately after the sensation of greasy distortion as I stepped out of one of the ring of doorways. The three men who had been sitting and waiting for me in the early light stood up and began turning things on and setting up. They were so busy they didn't initially see me knocking over the camera sending the live stream back to the US, or unscrewing the nut on the negative terminal of the large battery they'd brought with jittery fingers and pulling the cable off. I finally started using the metal coat stand to knock the groups of plywood sheets over onto the ground. No longer thresholds.
One of the men noticed me and started screaming at me and flipping me off. I looked around for the void, which I knew had followed me. I walked away from the men until all of them together were nearer each other than to me, hoping my thoughts on how this all worked was correct.
The men were more worried about the stuff I'd pushed over and the fact that they had no power for the barriers, so they didn't come after me at all. One of them made a yell and fell down, then a second. The third man started running towards the utility truck which had been parked a few meters away. I worried he would be able to drive off and I ran back towards what was left of the structure, but I saw the glass of the windscreen frosting over and then heard the engine cut out.
I knocked over the last wooden frame so there were no fake doorways anywhere, keeping my eye on the area around the truck. Now to really test my ridiculous idea.
I threw down the coat stand mostly straight onto the mushy ground. I closed my eyes, breathed, and imagined myself walking into that room in Dakota with the television-set setup, and stepped over the thin metal bar.
The distortion rippled around me and I walked into a bustle of excited commotion, feeling a little dizzy and a bit of elation. It worked! A threshold isn't a doorway. It's an arbitrary division between any two areas, completely dependent on someone's viewpoint. The crosser's viewpoint. And the whole idea of a ring of thresholds in Siberia was also stupid. Why a ring? Why an over-engineered high-tech barrier? To lock the void of nothingness into the Russian tundra, I'd have just had one doorway, and as soon as the thing came through, just tipped it over.
The void followed those who Travelled, and it followed those of us who entered that other world. The world which felt dead. I thought it really was dead in some way, and we were too alive compared to it. My guess? The void entity was a sort of compensation, an amount of no heat, no life, no-nothing roaming around, attracted to the highest amounts of something/warmth/aliveness it ran into. When I distanced myself from the three men in Russia, the three of them were in total a higher amount of liveliness than I was alone and further away. The combustion of the truck's engine may have also been an attractant, who knows.
And now it had possibly followed me to this room full of excited people, since if a metal pole was enough for me, it should be enough for that thing. My theory about the thresholds in the lab was that they too were arbitrary, in that they weren't actual divisions of anything—just props for our minds. Those laboratory doorways were used exclusively by threshold-crossers, and this had allowed the void to venture into our world. It wasn't going to start popping up through random entrances anywhere in the world, just ones that served no other purpose and was exclusively used by us overly-alive intruders. Our world did not need protection from this thing.
I backed out of the room into the hallway, not sure if anyone saw me. Time to set my system into chaotic disorder. I read my glucose meter and adjusted my pump, setting a bolus of several units. I started hearing screams and yells in the room and that was the confirmation that complete nothing had indeed followed me here. I needed it to do a little destruction before I left. I desperately hoped this would keep whoever was left away from my family, and if I survived, me.
Compared to the people in the room, although there were more of them, I was still probably like a bright spotlight next to candles. So long as I stuck around, it would wander, looking for me, but going after energetic people as it did. But I was about to leave, and it would likely follow me again. I started feeling strange, and sweat broke out on my skin. Time to go.
I peeked back into the room, seeing not just people on the ground but equipment without lights. I closed my eyes, imagining the entrance to the little balcony of my parents-in-law's senior-friendly apartment. I stepped through the door and into darkness.
I'd forgotten that back home it was around three in the morning, but luckily the door to the balcony was open to let in night air and I stumbled into the half-open door and onto a pile of pots on the balcony. Stupid. It could have been closed, which meant I wouldn't have Travelled at all. I turned right around and limped back towards the living room, this time to the dead world, because I was surely being followed.
The dead world was even darker, and I staggered into the house, stopping to catch my breath as dizziness overcame me and everything started shaking. My blood sugar was dropping rapidly, and I needed to make it upstairs.
I dog-crawled up the stairs and pulled myself forward to the guest bedroom which was where we slept when we came to visit. There was a bed in the room, but in this world it was empty, the walls sagging and the curtains wilted. I pulled the sugar packets out of my pocket and clutched them in my hand, climbing up onto the edge of the bed. The room was definitely darker, fuzzier, and something was coming up the stairs.
My thoughts became glacial, my skin was sweaty, and my body temperature dropped. Soon I would be unconscious. My liveliness would decline to near the same levels as everything else here, and the void would have little to compensate for. It would go away, the trail it was following having vanished in a wash of insulin.
Dying is also crossing a sort of threshold too, isn't it?
I woke up somewhere unfamiliar. The lights above me, and a curtain rod with a hideous medicinal-pink sheet hanging from it, and the sound of my son speaking told me what I needed to know. I managed to turn my head towards the sound, and there was my wife. She looked pretty worn out. On a chair next to her, my daughter was babbling with my son while they scribbled at paper with crayons. I drank them in.
My movement had attracted their attention and suddenly both kids were climbing onto me while my wife stood over me with a worried face. I looked up at her. "I think we're okay," I croaked at her.
"What happened??" she asked in a hoarse whisper.
"I will tell you, draga mea. I will tell you everything, I promise."
She had woken up to the sudden weight of me on the edge of the bed, found me nearly dead and the sugar packets, and had smeared as much of the powder as she dared into my mouth while calling the ambulance.
I had hoped that if I'd survived, the Institute would never contact me again, and so far, it hasn't. I came out of hospital with a tremor which is visible when I'm tired, but otherwise I seem okay. I did tell my wife everything, which, while she found it hard to believe, enough inexplicable things had happened that she was convinced. Unexpectedly, it felt good to have someone know my secret.
I went back to my life for the most part, still taking an occasional careful detour into the threshold world to keep anything worse at bay, and I thought, I can do this. This was fine.
But last night, my little angel, now nine years old, came bouncing into my study where I was finishing up grading papers. She was excited.
"Tati! Tati! I did something cool!" she exclaimed. I looked at her. "Oh?" I asked. "What did you do?"
She motioned for me to follow her, and being in a good mood, I did. She stopped at the door to the study. "Watch!" she said, holding up a finger importantly. Then she stepped out, not into the hallway, but gone entirely.
Instinctually, without thinking, I stepped through the doorway after her. She was standing in a decaying hallway, black stains on the floor where normally warm rugs lay, and plaster cracks on the yellowed walls. She looked back at me with a grin, but when she saw my face her smile faltered. I rushed forward, grabbed her in my arms, and stepped back into the study.
My wife and son were running up the steps, and found me sitting on the floor holding my daughter and crying, who was now frightened as well.
My worst fear.

Metropolitan Museum of Art appeals for protection of cultural heritage sites in Nagorno-Karabakh
by Sophia Kishkovsky and Nancy Kenney
Photo caption: A man held an icon from the Dadivank, an Armenian Apostolic Church monastery dating to the ninth century in the district of Kalbajar, as ethnic Armenians prepared to leave on 14 November. The district is being turned over to Azerbaijan as part of a Russian-brokered peace accord to end six weeks of fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York issued a plea today for the preservation of cultural heritage sites in the Nagorno-Karabakh region as Azerbaijan moves to take control of swaths of territory under a Russian-brokered peace deal for the enclave. "The recent bloodshed and destruction in the Nagorno-Karabakh region is a global tragedy of grave concern to us all", the Met's president and chief executive, Daniel Weiss, and director, Max Hollein, said in a statement. "In addition to our plea and hope for the violence to stop, as museum leaders we urge that cultural heritage sites be protected."
Nagorno-Karabakh lies within the borders of Azerbaijan but contains an Armenian ethnic majority. The Russian peace deal ended a six-week war between Azerbaijan and Armenians that is thought to have killed thousands. The war has pulled in some of the region’s biggest players, with Turkey backing Azerbaijan and Russia seeking to stop the fighting in a region it once governed. In October, Armenia accused Azerbaijan of bombing and desecrating the main cathedral in the city of Shushi (called Shusha by Azerbaijanis) and endangering an ancient Hellenistic Armenian city, Tigranakert. Azerbaijan has denied attacking the Ghazanchetsots Cathedral and has accused Armenia of destroying dozens of mosques when it controlled the region. Armenia is one of the world’s oldest Christian civilisations and Azerbaijan is mostly Muslim. Azerbaijan’s capture of Shushi early this month was a turning point that paved the way for the Russian-brokered resolution ceding districts to Azerbaijan.
"The Metropolitan Museum of Art is dedicated to preserving and exhibiting human creativity of over 5,000 years from across the globe," Weiss and Hollein say. "As the organiser and host of the Armenia! exhibition in 2018 — which was the first major exhibition to explore the remarkable artistic and cultural achievements of the Armenian people in a global context over fourteen centuries — we have watched in horror and sadness at the recent violence and bloodshed in the Nagorno-Karabakh region." "We implore all those involved to respect these international cultural heritage sites, which enrich our world and have survived for thousands of years," they add. "The loss of cultural heritage sites is permanent, and is a grievous theft from future generations."
Armenia and Azerbaijan, former Soviet republics, have been clashing over territory since the Soviet Union collapsed. The latest fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh, or the Republic of Artsakh, as it is called by Armenians, began in September when President Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijan opened an offensive to retake the enclave by force. Under the terms of the peace agreement, control over the enclave's main city, Stepanakert, will stay with ethnic Armenians as they cede other land to Azerbaijan that it has taken during the fighting. Ethnic Armenians are withdrawing from some areas they have governed since a previous peace deal brokered in 1994. Russian troops are now patrolling a corridor of land that links the region with Armenia so that Armenians can safely leave the area.
The preservation of both churches and mosques in Nagorno-Karabakh will be a main focus of the peace deal, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said recently. Lavrov said that engaging "UN organisations such as, first and foremost, Unesco", the United Nations arm that oversees cultural monuments, is a priority "especially with regard to the establishment of peaceful life in Karabakh: the coexistence of ethno-confessional groups, the revival of cultural and religious sites, ensuring their safe and respectful functioning." Each side in the conflict has appealed to Unesco. Azerbaijan’s Culture Ministry has said that it is resuming a decades-old drive to inscribe the Shusha historical and architectural reserve, including hundreds of ancient buildings, 17 mosques and the Shusha Fortress, on the Unesco World Heritage List. It has been on the tentative list since 2001. The World Council of Churches has expressed solidarity with the Armenian church over "reports being received of other more recent desecrations" and urged "Unesco to take all possible and appropriate measures to protect these sites."

"One of the earliest memories I have of Ivanka from before we were friends is when she blamed a fart on a classmate." - Ivanka's childhood friend, taking no prisoners

The Graham Finale

Sources close to Joe Biden and Democratic leaders have begun signaling a desire to move beyond the Trump administration’s corruption and abuses of power, while Donald Trump and his allies are still in the middle of trying to light election results on fire.
Democrats also sent a signal that they may not be spoiling for a fight about Trump in the post-Trump era.
Uniting the country, or at least backing away from constant social unrest, is a very cool goal we can all get behind. Another cool goal is a full accounting of the Trump administration’s unprecedented corruption and criminality, especially while Trump is still in a position to wreak havoc, and when Trump 2.0 could be just around the corner.

Look No Further Than The Crooked Media

We usually like to root for an underdog, but when it comes to science vs. everything else (a famous rivalry) we make an exception. We’re on team science, and luckily science has a perfect record. It might be because they have facts and evidence on their side OR it might be because their fans wear the coolest merch. Who’s to say?
Show your science pride and rep America Dissected with our Science Always Wins line. We even included some phosphorescence (scientific name: super cool glow-in-the-dark). Go team!

Under The Radar

Facebook is still profiting from ads placed by a Ukranian neo-Nazi group that the company banned a year ago. The far-right Azov movement has created at least a dozen new Facebook pages since July, and used them to place dozens of ads. Azov-affiliated groups have a history of using violence, and using social media to both organize those actions and share the results. The movement’s Intermarium project, which aims to connect white-nationalist movements in western Europe and the U.S. (the LinkedIn of nightmares), has also ducked around a Facebook ban to continue facilitating violence on social media. The State Department has designated the Azov movement a “nationalist hate group,” and Facebook knows it’s been using the platform to expand beyond Ukraine, but seems content to continue taking its money.

What Else?

Joe Biden has announced several hires for White House senior staff, including several veterans of his presidential campaign and none of his daughter’s husbands, weirdly.
Trump tweet-fired Chris Krebs, the head of DHS's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Krebs had been using an agency website and his personal Twitter to debunk Trump's post-election conspiracy theories.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), age 87, has tested positive for coronavirus. Thank god this virus will instantly disappear after two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called Sen. Sherrod Brown (OH) “a complete ass” after Brown asked Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK) to wear a mask when he’s exhaling on staffers. We may never know how Grassley was exposed, what with all of his GOP colleagues taking public-health measures so seriously.
Rudy Giuliani stepped in to represent the Trump campaign in its “big” Pennsylvania case aimed at stopping the state from certifying its results, promptly making claims of voter fraud and irregular ballot processing that other judges (and some of Trump’s own lawyers) have repeatedly rejected as unfounded. Rudy then went on to learn exciting new things about the law, and the word “opacity.” For this Giuliani has requested $20,000 a day.
Senate Republicans failed to advance Judy “bring back the gold standard” Shelton’s nomination for a Fed board seat, after three Republicans came out against her and two others were banished to coronavirus quarantine. Also, Lindsey Graham fist-bumped Kamala Harris? If anyone understands this man’s deal, our DMs are open.
The Justice Department has moved to drop all drug-trafficking and money-laundering charges against former Mexican Defense Secretary Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda, for some kind of normal, non-corrupt-deal reason.
Internal Facebook data shows that slapping a warning label on Trump’s false claims does nothing to stop them from going viral. Labels on the posts decrease reshares by around eight percent, a drop in the bucket given how widely Trump’s disinformation spreads.
Dolly Parton was a major funder of the 94.5 percent effective Moderna vaccine, the indisputable Jolene of coronavirus vaccine candidates. (You’ll find someone else, Pfizer.)
The "fleets" are upon us. These are tweets that disappear automatically, instead of being manually deleted by a user who expected more engagement, as the lord intended.

Be Smarter

Russia didn’t mount any major hacking or disinformation operations to interfere in the election—possibly because Americans did such a good job of it on our own. U.S. officials said that a series of cyber operations, better overall preparation, and the exposure of Russian malware may have helped to keep hackers at bay, but the Kremlin may have simply decided it wasn’t worth the risk of extra sanctions: Four years of Trump successfully banged up American democracy, Americans were satisfactorily anxious about the very prospect of foreign election interference, and Trump himself churned out so much election disinformation that Russia didn’t need to lift a finger. Bringing jobs back to the U.S., baby!

2020.11.18 06:45 kent_c Statistical Analysis of 2020 Election Indicates Massive Fraud by DEMOCRATS!

Statistical Analysis of 2020 Election Indicates Massive Fraud by DEMOCRATS in SWING STATES!
People don't vote for only President on a ballot normally, but we have found over 400,000 Biden only votes and no Trump only votes on ballots.
Continued statistical analysis shows wild numbers of people who voted ONLY for Joe Biden and didn’t vote further down the ticket:
Pennsylvania — 98,000
Georgia — 80-90,000
Arizona — 42,000
Michigan — 69- 115,000
Wisconsin — 62,836
Biden gets more votes than Obama while he was less popular than both Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Even democrat facebook fact checkers can't hide this obvious voter fraud - https://www.factcheck.org/2020/11/biden-did-indeed-get-more-votes-than-obama/
In Wisconsin, voter turnout matched the record high of 2004. The Wisconsin Elections Commission uses the estimated voting age population as the denominator when calculating statewide voter turnout numbers. According to the Elections Commission, there was a 73 percent turnout in this Wisconsin election.
Turnout was 67 percent in 2016; 70 percent in 2012; 69 percent in 2008; and 73 percent in 2004. Apparently Joe Biden smashed Barack Obama’s 2008 turnout in most places in the country.
In both Michigan and Wisconsin, several vote dumps occurred at approximately 4am on Wednesday morning, which showed that Joe Biden received almost 100 percent of the votes. President Trump was leading by hundreds of thousands of votes in both states as America went to sleep, and turnout in the state of Wisconsin seems to be particularly impossible.
With absentee ballots, former vice-president Joe Biden was also up 60 points in Pennsylvania and almost 40 points in Michigan According to the New York Times. Comparably, Biden was only up single digits in absentee voting in most other battleground states. Wisconsin has not yet been reported.
Elections officials in Michigan and Wisconsin could not explain Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s sudden and dramatic vote tally increase that occurred in both states Wednesday morning.
When asked at a Wednesday press conference how this occurred, Michigan Department of State spokesperson Aneta Kiersnowski told reporters “We cannot speculate as to why the results lean one way or another.”
This is particularly concerning considering republicans led in mail-in ballots requested and mail-in and in-person ballots returned leading up to and at the start of election day.
According to NBC News on election day before the polls opened, In Michigan, Republicans led 41% to 39% in Mail-in Ballots requested. Republicans also led 42% to 39% with Mail-in and in-person ballots returned.
In Wisconsin on election day before the polls opened, Republicans led Mail-in Ballots requested 43% to 35%, and Mail-in and early in-person ballots returned 43% to 35%. Almost ALL of the ballots found, while most in the country were sleeping, after they officials stated they would stop counting, were for Joe Biden.
In Arizona where the election remains at a razor thin margin, and some analysts say might flip back to Trump, Republicans led there as well on election day.
Republicans led in mail-in ballots requested and mail-in and early early in-person ballots returned at by an even bigger percentage in Georgia than Arizona.
Some statistically savvy observers noticed other mathematical flaws, as random numbers in statistics should follow a pattern in their distribution. If the numbers are falsified, it is easy to detect.
Ballots in Pennsylvania also seem to be arriving before they’re sent out, arriving the same day, or arriving just one day after being mailed out. A data analyst explains that there are so called “fast traveling” ballots appearing. Their distribution is skewed towards mail in applications compared to the rest which are skewed towards online applications. He plotted BallottSentDate vs DallotReturnedDate. And added (BallotSentDate vs BallotSentDate) on the same plot which gave a straight line (1:1). Everything below this line traveled back in time.
If only look at those “suspicious” mail-in ballot – most of them come from Philadelphia and Lehigh, around 44%There is a difference in percentage of ’suspicious’ ballots by mail application type. OLMAILV- This is a mail ballot application that was submitted online. MAILIN-This is a mail-in ballot application. ‘Suspicious’ ballots have higher ratio of Mail-In compared to Online than normal ballots. You would expect that under normal circumstances, and if there is a perfectly legal explanation for the ‘suspicious ballots,’ the turnaround time should not depend on how the ballot was requested? Also, table above is colored by %age for “% of Total(Y)” – Y for ‘suspicious.’
Sworn Affidavits and Testimonies of Fraud
A new elections lawsuit filed in Michigan on Sunday alleges massive voter fraud in vote-counting procedures in Wayne County, a Democratic stronghold and home to the city of Detroit.
Witnesses filing sworn affidavits under oath allege that Wayne County elections officials encouraged fraud, including changing legal names and dates on ballots, ballot-harvesting, voter intimidation, and preventing poll watchers from challenging irregularities in the vote-counting process.
“This type of widespread fraud in the counting and processing of voter ballots cannot be allowed to stand. Michigan citizens are entitled to know that their elections are conducted in a fair and legal manner and that every legal vote is properly counted,” said David A. Kallman, an attorney with the Great Lakes Justice Center.
Read this sworn affidavit from GOP poll challenger, and former Assistant AG for Michigan, Zachary Larsen, on the alleged fraud he observed in Detroit. This is Third World stuff, and every American should be outraged if these allegations are true https://t.co/63nLXJxAZF pic.twitter.com/9WbamMw4Yc — Benjamin Weingarten (@bhweingarten) November 9, 2020
Another portion of the sworn statements from Detroit indicate that several boxes of ballots were brought in through the back door of the TCF center at 9pm on Wednesday. Despite election rules clearly stating that all ballots needed to be inputted into the system by 9pm on Tuesday, November 3rd, election workers inputted the entire batch into the QVF system and manually added each voter to the list after 9pm.
Here's some more of the shenanigans detailed in a lawsuit coming out of Detroit on raft of alleged fraudulent actions observed during election night count. What does Joe Biden have to say about these allegations? Are these witnesses Russian traitors too? https://t.co/JPrGh4uNo6 pic.twitter.com/5tk8feDD54 — Benjamin Weingarten (@bhweingarten) November 9, 2020

2020.11.16 16:02 rusticgorilla Lost in the Sauce: Barr's DOJ shut down investigations of Trump and admin officials

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.
Housekeeping:

Post-election

On Saturday, Trump announced on Twitter that he has put his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in charge of his campaign's long-shot post-election legal challenges. Other people on the team include Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis.
  • Giuliani worked with a Russian agent to smear Biden. diGenova and Toensing tried to get the Justice Department to drop charges against corrupt Ukraine oligarch Dmytro Firtash. Powell represents Michael Flynn and champions "deep state" conspiracies. Ellis said gay marriage leads to pedophilia.
NYT: Mr. Trump turned to Mr. Giuliani earlier on Friday in reaction to the latest setback he faced in court, this one relating to votes in Maricopa County, Arizona… A half-dozen other Trump advisers have described Mr. Giuliani’s efforts as counterproductive and said that he was giving the president unwarranted optimism about what could happen… In an Oval Office meeting with aides on Thursday, Mr. Trump put Mr. Giuliani on speakerphone so the others could hear him. He angrily accused the aides of not telling the president the truth
Giuliani’s conspiracy-riddled rant at Four Seasons Total Landscaping was so disastrous that it “scared off many of the lawyers” recruited to argue election-related lawsuits. Politico: “Campaign officials described the episode as disastrous...there are widespread concerns within Trumpworld and GOP circles that Giuliani’s antics are thwarting the president’s legal machinery from within.”
Two major law firms have withdrawn from Trump campaign cases as his legal challenges crumble. Arizona’s largest law firm Snell & Wilmer dumped the RNC and Trump campaign effort to challenge votes in Maricopa County. Porter Wright Morris & Arthur is abandoning Trump’s attempt to block Pennsylvania's popular vote for Joe Biden.
  • In one day (Friday), nine cases meant to attack President-elect Joe Biden's win in key states were denied or dropped - seven in Pennsylvania, one in Arizona, and one in Michigan.
The new federal chief information security officer, Camilo Sandoval, has already taken leave from his day job to participate in a pro-Trump effort to hunt for evidence of voter fraud in the battleground states. The group, Voter Integrity Fund, is a newly formed Virginia-based group that is analyzing ballot data and cold-calling voters. Sandoval was officially appointed on Nov. 4, 2020, but lists his starting date at October on his personal LinkedIn page.
WaPo: Sandoval is part of a hastily convened team led by Matthew Braynard, a data specialist who worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign. Another participant is Thomas Baptiste, an adviser to the deputy secretary of the Interior Department who also took a leave to work on the project. Braynard said in an interview that several other government officials on leave are also assisting the effort, but he declined to identify them.
Media’s role:
  • Facebook Cut Traffic To Leading Liberal Pages Just Before The Election: Liberal page administrators who spoke with BuzzFeed News said that their reach declined by as much as 70%, and still hasn’t recovered.
  • Facebook Live Spread Election Conspiracies And Russian State-Controlled Content Despite Employee Fears: The social network’s live video tool has recommended videos featuring misinformation and the hyperpartisan views of Trump allies leading up to and following election day in the US.
  • In the week after the election, Trump’s postings dominated Facebook, accounting for the 10 most engaged status updates in the United States, and 22 of the top 25. “I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!” was his top post.
  • YouTube Is Doing Very Little to Stop Election Misinformation From Spreading
  • Social media app Parler receives financial backing from conservative hedge-fund investor Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah, The Wall Street Journal reported. Parler turned into a kind of de facto home for conservatives’ protests against the election— including the persistent “Stop the Steal” campaign— after the race was called for former Vice President Joe Biden. Several high-profile conservative social media personalities encouraged people to abandon Twitter and Facebook because of their moderation policies, and instead follow them on Parler.

Transition

Emily Murphy, the head of the General Services Administration, still hasn’t signed the official letter that would allow the incoming Biden team to formally begin the transition. House Democrats are assessing options to force the GSA’s hand, which could include summoning Murphy to the Hill to testify or suing her. “Obviously, Congress could file suit against the GSA administrator for failing to do her duty. We could seek to get a court to, in fact, issue an order
Her ascertainment is the legally necessary precursor to the government’s assistance to the Biden-Harris Presidential Transition Team. It releases $6.3 million dollars to the team, which is funded by public and private money; a loan of expanded federal office space and equipment; access to government agencies that will begin sharing information and records about ongoing activities, plans and vulnerabilities; national security briefings for the president; and other support.
  • The Office of the Director of National Intelligence recently confirmed that it is not providing national security briefings to the president-elect. The Defense Department has also reportedly indicated that it will not meet with the Biden-Harris transition team until Murphy formally affirms the apparent winner.
One of the officials fired in Trump’s latest purge was helping prepare for the transition to the new administration. USAID Deputy Administrator Bonnie Glick was removed abruptly to make way for a Trump loyalist after she had been supportive of transition planning, including the preparation of a 440-page manual for the next administration.
The GSA’s refusal to enact the transition has locked Biden’s team out of crucial Covid-19 pandemic data and government agency contacts. The president-elect’s Covid-19 task force has been trying to work around the federal government by connecting with governors and the health community.
  • The head of Operation Warp Speed, Moncef Slaoui, called on the White House to allow contact with the Biden team, saying “It is a matter of life and death for thousands of people.”
White House’s Office of Management and Budget is considering 145 new regulations and other policy changes they could enact before Biden’s inauguration - rules that will be challenging to undo once they are finalized. Critics and supporters of the administration say they expect a final burst of regulations to be finalized in the weeks before Jan. 20.
The rules under development include policies that the incoming Biden administration would probably oppose, such as new caps on the length of foreign student visas; restrictions on the Environmental Protection Agency’s use of scientific research; limits on the EPA’s consideration of the benefits of regulating air pollutants; and a change that would make it easier for companies to treat workers as independent contractors, rather than employees with more robust wage protections.
Last week, both Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said they’re preparing for a second Trump term. “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo said during a news conference Tuesday afternoon (clip). Pompeo then doubled down on Fox News (clip). “We are moving forward here at the White House under the assumption there will be a second Trump term,” Navarro said on Fox Business Friday (clip).

DOJ interference

Attorney General William Barr stopped career prosecutors in DOJ’s Public Integrity Section from investigating whether President Trump broke any laws related to his conduct with Ukraine last year. The section was initially given the green light to pursue “a potentially explosive inquiry” into Trump, but after the Senate acquitted the president during impeachment proceedings, Barr sent the case to the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn.
Prosecutors in DOJ’s Public Integrity Section were also prevented from bringing charges against former interior secretary Ryan Zinke by political appointees atop the Justice Department. Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen told prosecutors that they needed to gather more evidence and refine the case against Zinke for lying to Interior investigators.
  • The investigation into Zinke stemmed from his decision to block two Native American tribes—the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan—from opening a casino in Connecticut. Zinke’s office had been lobbied heavily by MGM Resorts International, which had been planning to open its own casino very close to where the tribes intended to break ground.
Sixteen assistant U.S. attorneys specially assigned to monitor malfeasance in the 2020 election urged Barr on Friday to rescind his memo allowing election-fraud investigations before results are certified. "It was developed and announced without consulting non-partisan career professionals in the field and at the Department. Finally, the timing of the Memorandum's release thrusts career prosecutors into partisan politics," the prosecutors wrote.
An internal Justice Department investigation found that federal prosecutors who oversaw a controversial non-prosecution deal with Jeffrey Epstein in 2008 exercised “poor judgment” but did not break the law. “They just say he used poor judgment, and that's their way of basically letting everyone off the hook while offering some sort of an olive branch to the victims that we acknowledge weren't treated perfectly,” said Brad Edwards, who sued the DOJ in 2008 on behalf of Epstein accusers.

Immigration news

Eastern District of New York Judge Nicholas Garaufis (Clinton-appointee) ruled that Chad Wolf was not legally serving as acting Homeland Security secretary when he signed rules limiting DACA program applications and renewals. Therefore, in a win for Dreamers and immigration activists, Garaufis said the changes were invalid.
The judge described an illegitimate shuffling of leadership chairs at the Department of Homeland Security, the agency responsible for immigration enforcement, for the predicament of Wolf's leadership and that of his predecessor, Kevin McAleenan.
"Based on the plain text of the operative order of succession," Garaufis wrote in the Saturday ruling, "neither Mr. McAleenan nor, in turn, Mr. Wolf, possessed statutory authority to serve as Acting Secretary. Therefore the Wolf Memorandum was not an exercise of legal authority."
  • There's a renewed push to get Chad Wolf confirmed as Homeland Security secretary -- a position in which he's been serving in an acting capacity for a yearr -- before Inauguration Day. In the past week, Homeland Security officials spoke to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office about bringing the nomination to a floor vote in the coming weeks.
Within the last six months, as the coronavirus pandemic gripped the US, the Trump administration filed 75 lawsuits to seize private land along the US-Mexico border for the border wall." People right now are having to choose between their health and their homes," said Ricky Garza, a staff attorney at the Texas Civil Rights Project, a legal advocacy group.
After a series of price increases, Trump’s border project will cost taxpayers $20 million per mile of border fence. A review of federal spending data shows more than 200 contract modifications, at times awarded within just weeks or months after the original contracts, have increased the cost of the border wall project by billions of dollars since late 2017.
DHS has expelled unaccompanied immigrant children from the US border more than 13,000 times since March, using the coronavirus as an excuse to deny children their right to asylum. Previously, unaccompanied children were sent to government-run shelters as they attempted to pursue their asylum cases.
Migrant children from Central America are being expelled to Mexico, where they have no family connections. The expulsions not only put children in danger - the policy violates a diplomatic agreement with Mexico that only Mexican children and others who had adult supervision could be pushed back into Mexico after attempting to cross the border.
The House Judiciary Committee released a report on the Trump administration’s policy of separating families at the border, revealing that the federal agency that cares for migrant children was not told about the policy. The chaos contributed to the inability to later reunite parents and children.
The Trump administration is trying to deport several women who allege they were mistreated by a Georgia gynecologist at an immigration detention center. Hours after one detained woman spoke to federal investigators about forced hysterectomies at a Georgia detention center, she said ICE told her that it had lifted a hold on her deportation and she faced “imminent” removal. Six former patients who complained about Dr. Mahendra Amin had already been deported.
Northern District of Illinois Judge Gary Feinerman (Obama-appointee) blocked a key Trump administration policy that allowed officials to deny green cards to immigrants who might need public assistance Advocates who had feared that the policy would harm tens of thousands of poor people, particularly those affected by widespread job loss because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Miscellaneous

Microsoft said it has detected attempts by state-backed Russian and North Korean hackers to steal valuable data from leading pharmaceutical companies and vaccine researchers. “Among the targets, the majority are vaccine makers that have COVID-19 vaccines in various stages of clinical trials.”
Two census takers told The AP that their supervisors pressured them to enter false information into a computer system about homes they had not visited so they could close cases during the waning days of the once-a-decade national headcount.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday signaled it’s unlikely to tear down Obamacare over a Republican-backed lawsuit challenging the landmark health care law. Chief Justice John Roberts and Trump appointee Justice Brett Kavanaugh strongly questioned whether the elimination of the mandate penalty made the rest of the law invalid. Kavanaugh appeared to signal on several occasions that he favored leaving the rest of the law intact if the mandate is struck.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) was sued last week by four whistleblowers claiming that he abused his office to benefit himself, a woman with whom he was said to have had an affair, and the wealthy donor who employs her before retaliating against the members of his staff who reported him to the FBI.
The Trump administration is rushing plans to auction drilling rights in the U.S. Arctic National Wildlife Refuge before the inauguration of Biden, who has vowed to block oil exploration in the rugged Alaska wilderness. Biden’s efforts could be complicated if the Trump administration sells drilling rights first. Formally issued oil and gas leases on federal land are government contracts that can’t be easily yanked.

Prophecies of Nostradamus - a channelled solution, part 2
This mini-series outlines the coming turn of the Wheel of Fate for humanity as prophesized by the great occultist and seer, Nostradamus. The source claims Nostradamus was in communion with him and gave him more direct explanations of his quatrains peering into our reality from the higher realms that had to be encrypted at his time because of authorities. I've revealed this here as it sits perfectly with the other materials (over a hundred prophecies) as well as the movements on the world stage. The quatrains of Nostradamus would require the reader to be well versed in latin, greek, history of the world, occult science, astronomy, the body, alegories of ancient and Nostradamus time and so on and can be explained in endless ways as they often are in the lamestream media.

7.3 England brashly rushes into battle
An English prince, Mars has his heart in the heavens, will wish to follow his prospering fortune. In two duels, one will pierce him in the gall bladder, hated by him, but well loved by his mother. (III-16)
This is an event that will take place close to the beginnings of the war caused by the Anti-Christ. This will precipitate England’s involvement with this great war. «The English Prince, his heart held by Mars high in the heavens» , is a young man of the English royal house who is eager to lead the troops into battle. He will be anxious to go. He will be in two major engagements and in one of them he will be defeated. He will be outflanked on the field and he will have to retreat in disgrace. The troops that he was fighting against will spit at him and use his name as a curseword, for he was a good fighter even though he was defeated.
His brashly rushing into battle messes up some of the carefully laid plans in the conquest of Europe. And so this man will return to England. However, «his mother» i.e. his motherland, England, will be cheering him and will love him all the more for the brave show he made. For trying to help and for carrying the English name and honor bright into battle. The part «they will pierce him in the gall bladder» means they will outflank him and «pierce» his forces in the side and hence defeat him.

The weapons fight in the sky for a long period; the tree fell in the middle of the city. The sacred branch cut, a sword opposite Tison, then the King Hadrie falls. (III-11)
It refers to the fall of the English royal house. The quatrain predicts a combination of the male descendants of the family either being killed in battle or dying from a disease released from biological bombs designed to affect only men. The enemy will have biological bombs that release viruses killing all of the soldiers. Slashing the fighting forces so they’ll have less soldiers to confront on the battlefield. But the bomb doesn’t discriminate. It also affects men who are not fighting, such as older men at home and young boys. This bomb is only going to be dropped on England. But the doctors in England will be able to create a vaccine or a serum that will counteract the effects of the virus and help make people immune to it.
In the North great efforts will be made, across the seas the way will be open. The rule on the island will be re-established, London fearful of the fleet when sighted. (II-68)
This refers to two events. On the one hand it refers to the way things were between the United States and England during World War II, and how they managed to keep the «shipping lanes open between the two countries». It also refers to the time of the Anti-Christ. The Anti-Christ, during his European campaign, will also attempt to take over Great Britain – «London fearful of the fleet when sighted» - but not be entirely successful. Part of the reasons for this will be because there will be the support of the United States behind England, once again. So Great Britain, being a prime maritime power will be able to reassert herself.
The more stubborn supporters of the underground will flee to Ireland and Scotland. He will not be successful in taking over the entire island. Then you’ll have kind of like a "rump" United Kingdom. You’ll understand me if you recall your history of World War II, when the Germans took over part of Czechoslovakia. Two-thirds of Czechoslovakia was part of Nazi Germany and the remainder of Czechoslovakia put together a rump government. Thus, they will have a rump United Kingdom. The majority of England will be under the power of the Anti-Christ. But North England, Scotland and Ireland will not be under is power.
Hopefully this event taking place has the possibilities of uniting Ireland. Because if England is taken over, she will not be able to do anything about Northern Ireland, so Ireland can reunite itself the way it’s been wanting to be reunited for centuries. When England is taken over by the Anti-Christ, they will be in no position to have any say-so as to what goes on in Ireland. And so Ireland will be able to apply its own remedies to its problems, and turn its dynamic energy towards other problems, such as the Anti-Christ. And the Irish spirit, being strong and valiant as it is and the Scottish stubbornness will play a good ways toward helping the underground movement to survive the worst of the worst days and eventually conquer the Anti-Christ. When all this is over, people who are Scottish and people who are Irish will be proud that they are, because of the role Ireland and Scotland will play.

7.4 France is torn
https://preview.redd.it/7jg9mtdm57z51.png?width=350&format=png&auto=webp&s=382197f394cfaa6b4e9e7f3f50dac9f94e6d5e62
French fleet, do not approach Corsica; even less Sardinia, you will regret it. You will all die, the help from the cape in vain, captive, swimming in blood you will not believe me. (III-87)

The Anti-Christ will use the islands of «Corsica» and «Sardinia» as a base of operation to attack France. Others who are aware of what is going on will try to warn the French – unfortunately «in vain».
In Avignon, the leader of all the Empire will make a stop because Paris is deserted. Tricast will contain the African anger, the Lion will be poorly consoled by the change. (III-93)
The Anti-Christ marches through southern France near «Avignon». Avignon was a very important city in my days, because it was the seat of the papacy at one point; within a couple of hundred years of my time. «Paris will be deserted» because he will threaten to bomb it, as he has bombed Rome and Athens. England won’t be able to do a thing because she’ll be threatened next.

In the green field of Alleins and Vernegues of the Luberon mountains near Durance, the fighting on both sides will be so bitter for the armies that Mesopotamia shall cease to be found in France. (III-99)
This quatrain refers to the fighting that will occur when the Anti-Christ’s forces try to capture Switzerland. He won’t be successful but he will destroy a part of France in trying. A bomb will be launched to destroy Geneva and Zurich, but instead it will land in France and cause contamination. This will happen at the French and Swiss border area, hence the names of the places in France.
During his daring Mediterranean campaign the Anti-Christ takes over Monaco and he knows he must get rid of the Prince of Monaco so he can be the official ruler. The reason why Monaco is so important is because of its strategic position in relation to Italy and southern Europe. In Century III-10 I refer to «the great golden one caught in an iron cage». This is the successor to Prince Ranier (apparently one of his sons) who will be imprisoned after the takeover.

7.5 The Rock of Gibraltar falls

The marine tower will be captured and retaken three times by Spaniards, barbarians and Ligurians. Marseilles and Aix, Arles by men of Pisa, devastation, fire, sword, pillage at Avignon by the Turinese. (I-71)
https://preview.redd.it/vj4yij5q57z51.png?width=400&format=png&auto=webp&s=60caedb29d88c44333fc2724861c1721ec480fdb
The «maritime tower» refers to the Rock of Gibraltar, a «tower» of strength due to its strategic location. Also it belongs to a country that is basically a maritime or a marine power; that is, Great Britain with her navy.
A promontory stands between two seas: A man who will die later by the bit of a horse; Neptune unfurls a black sail for his man; the fleet near Gibraltar and Rocheval. (Ι-77)
Gibraltar will play a key role in the Mediterranean battle with the Anti-Christ. The key man principle in saving Gibraltar from the Anti-Christ’s forces and thereby as a result saving the Iberian Peninsula, will later go to his death. He will be killed in an automobile accident. I used the phrase, «bit by the horse» because I did not know the concept of automobiles. This man is a naval officer but he will die somewhat young. That’s why I said «Neptune had unfurled a black sail for him».

The promontory is the Rock of Gibraltar and «the fleet near Gibraltar and Rocheval» refers to one of the key strategic places the fleet will need to be in the process of the ongoing sea battles. Rocheval is an anagram for a small obscure port that’s not too distant from the Rock of Gibraltar.
The leader who will conduct great numbers of people far from their skies, to foreign customs and language. Five thousand will die in Crete and Thessaly, the leader fleeing in a sea-going supply ship. (I-98)
There will be a large force of marines that will try to stave off an attack. Many will be killed in the neighborhood of «Crete and Thessaly». But they will not succeed and they will have to withdraw, probably to Gibraltar. This is to be expected because the Anti-Christ won’t be able to just walk into Europe. There will be a struggle. The Europeans will fight back. The fighting ship which their leader is on will be sunk and he will have to transfer his colors to a supply ship because it will be the nearest ship that is still seaworthy and large enough to carry his men. It will be a very fierce battle. I’m speaking figuratively. I described it as «barn» because it is a place where you store your feed for your horses plus your horses. This ship will have amphibious vessels in it as well as gasoline and such.
7.6 The conquest of Spain

New games are set up in Gaul, after the victory of the Insubrian campaign. The mountains of Hesperia the great ones tied and bound. Romania and Spain will tremble with fear. (IV-36)

It refers to the Anti-Christ’s southern European campaign. His influence will begin spreading to where it will threaten Spain on the western side and threaten Romania on the eastern side. At this point in the campaign the Anti-Christ will have already taken over much of France and will prepare to take over Spain.
As for the «victory of the Insubrian campaign» you will find some parallels in the Gallic peoples and the Roman history when the Roman Empire was trying to expand northward into central Europe. The Romans were only able to go so far before they ran into problems. But the Anti-Christ will learn from history to overcome these problems. «The mountains of Hesperia» refer to the mountains of eastern Europe, particularly the Alps and the Caucasians. That area is mountainous and difficult to maneuver in.
Note: The Insubres were one of several Gallic peoples of the continent, known as Celtae, who crossed the Alps and settled in what is now known as Milan and the Po valley in the 5th century B.C.E. These people were fierce warriors. Undaunted by the prospect of death they fell upon their enemies with an ardor and impetuosity that swept away an army in an instant. They destroyed but they did not create.
7.7 Greece-Turkey : a brief war
The alien nation will divide the spoils. Saturn is dreadful aspect in Mars. Dreadful and foreign to the Tuscans and Latins. Greeks who will wish to strike. (I-83)
«The alien nation» represents the country you know as Turkey because Turkey will contain so many internal factions – «will divide the spoils»; that’s why it will start a war with Greece so people will concentrate on the war rather than the internal problems that are taking place within their country. While Turkey will have the support of the Russians, Greece will not have the support of other countries. It will ask for help from Italy, the United States and other countries, but they will all stay neutral.
«Saturn in dreadful aspect in Mars» refers to the fact that this war will happen when Saturn will be in its ruling position of Capricorn, and Mars will be in Aries. The war will only last for a couple of months. There’ll be fire in the great city of Athens but they are not going to burn the Parthenon.

The great Satyr and Tiger of Hyrcania; gift presented to the people of the Ocean: the leader of a fleet will come forth from Carmania and land at the Phocea of Tyre. (III-90)
During the Turkish-Greek war, the Greeks will be outraged by Turkey’s desire to control a lot of the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. The «Tiger» represents Israel, and the «Satyr» represents the glory of ancient Greece. They will make an alliance and this will bottle up the Turks and Arabs who are trying to destroy Israel.
An alliance will be created between Greece and Israel against Turkey, and their ceremonies will be conducted on the water - «gift presented to the people of the Ocean». You can research the historical name Hyrcanus and the history of ancient Tyre in order to understand these references.
Near the Douro closed by the Cyrenian sea he will come to cross the great mountains of the Pyrenees. The shortest hand and his opening noted he will take his followers to Carcassonne. (III-62)
The «Cyrenian Sea» refers to the Anti-Christ’s invasion of Europe through Spain and Greece. The Anti-Christ will take possession of Cyprus away from the Turks when he first rises to power. He will also take over the ancient town of «Carcassonne» which is in southern France. He considers it to be a strategic point.

7.8 The children suffocate without education
https://preview.redd.it/hlkpz1fu57z51.png?width=300&format=png&auto=webp&s=c37eabee68bcddf0e0d4c02f490cfc8992cdacdf
A year before the war in Italy, Germans, French and Spanish will be for the strong one; the school-house of the republic will fall, where, except for a few, they will suffocate to death. (II-39)

There will be those in Germany, France, Spain, and Italy, who «will be for the strong one», will be secretly working for the Anti-Christ, helping him to take over Europe. As a result of him taking over Europe and destroying the cultural centers and such, it will affect Europe in such a way that, since they’ll be in a state of war, it’ll be difficult to continue educating the children because of air raids and such like. And so the children will have to go without education until the time of troubles are over.
Some of them, the ones referred to as «suffocating to death», are those with curious minds who need to read and learn because they are of above-average intelligence. They will feel like they are suffocating without the exposure to literature and such as they were used to. The phrase «the schoolhouse will fall», refers to the inability to educate the children due to the war conditions.
7.9 Experimentation
During the time of troubles the nations will become desperate for any solution to stop the monster. Thus, this also will become a time of experimentation. Scientists will search for new and more radical weapons and other methods of war that defy belief. Some of them seem to stretch man’s imagination to the limits.
https://preview.redd.it/libcc0zv57z51.png?width=280&format=png&auto=webp&s=0ffbbf05fb26d21d5092ad7ecc8512fcfe191703
The sun in twenty degrees of Taurus, there will be a great earthquake; the great theater full up will be ruined. Darkness and trouble in the air, on sky and land, when the infidel calls upon God and the Saints. (ΙΧ-83)
This one has a multiple meaning. Such quatrains are easy enough to interpret into multiple meanings because of the disasters that happen from time to time in earth’s history. One of the minor implications of this quatrain has happened in what you would consider the recent past, that is the earthquake in Mexico City (September 1985). But that is not the major impetus of the quatrain. This will be an earthquake that will be triggered by a weapon that is currently being developed in secret underground laboratories. I cannot put across the images of how this weapon works, for the concepts are not present in my vocabulary and they’re not present in this vehicle’s vocabulary either. It apparently will be working on some scientific principle recently discovered that has not really been developed yet.
https://preview.redd.it/k8987lmx57z51.png?width=280&format=png&auto=webp&s=4ed3372c928a50804bc6eb79319cb0f2d7c2a81b
So the concept of it is not generally available to be learned. The only thing I’m putting across clearly is the operating part of this weapon, the part that actually triggers the earthquake. I’m not sure, or rather the concepts are not clear as to whether it is something that is dropped or something that is projected like a laser ray, but whatever the actual operating point of the spear is, so to speak, it is airborne. Some extension of the device is carried in a plane and the plane must fly over the area where the earthquake is to be or at least fly over the area where the earthquake must be triggered, regardless of the area the earthquake ends up affecting.
https://preview.redd.it/3gtr5biy57z51.png?width=350&format=png&auto=webp&s=c73cceb9d6763055bf3d0fc63017ff66aa482055
But that will not be the entire device. That will simply be like the point of the spear, just the operating part of it. The power behind the weapon and the science behind it will be based in a secret underground laboratory elsewhere. Somehow the power from the underground laboratory will be linked to the airborne device in such a way as to be able to channel it to the desired effect of a triggered earthquake. This could possibly be done in some sophisticated way by directing sound waves toward the target. The country that develops this device will be able to hold it as a major threat over the heads of all the major nations. Any nation can be intimidated that has any geological faults in their country that are susceptible to earthquakes.

It will be very similar to the situation immediately after World War II, of the United States being the only country with nuclear power. It might be a nation like Russia, or a nation with the power behind it to have secret military research going on in a big way, on a large scale. The attitude this nation will have is that, "the weapon is mine. I’m going to keep it to myself". It’s a paranoid nation that will have it and this will cause the disintegration of the United States.
«The sun in 20 degrees of Taurus», refers to when the weapon becomes generally known. It’s already in the process of being developed but it’s extremely secret. When it becomes more generally known, it will be that date. There will be an earthquake associated with it. That’s how people will come to realize there is something fishy going on. For there will start being a lot of earthquakes without the previous buildup of pressure associated with them. One side effect of this weapon is that it will create sufficient instability to set off other earthquakes that are apt to go at any time anyway.
📷

I’m picturing the two major fault systems in the United States. One is particularly unstable. The other one stays stable but then is explosive. The San Andreas and the New Madrid faults. The earthquakes triggered by this weapon will cause the San Andreas fault to rumble all the time. The New Madrid fault has always been bad to build up the pressure and then explosively quake.
So with the San Andreas fault continually rumbling and vibrating it will set off the New Madrid fault into a major earthquake. When these earthquakes initially start happening the geologists will think it’s by natural causes, but then some of the information will not point to natural causes and they’ll begin so suspect something. As more earthquakes happen, through their science they gather more information and confront the scientific world with the evidence they have that these are not natural earthquakes.
This earthquake device, that this country has for focusing a certain type of energy waves onto certain parts of the earth’s crust to trigger earthquakes, is already in the process of being developed. This will be basically before the Anti-Christ comes to power. It will contribute to the United Nations falling apart, and that in turn will make things easier for the Anti-Christ.

https://preview.redd.it/sphi075067z51.png?width=228&format=png&auto=webp&s=468f2144c59760fedf5bb128796fb3de7b7c6660
This nation that develops this machine will be developing it independently of the Anti-Christ rising to power, but later on when he takes over a certain amount of power he’ll be able to start acquiring things like this. Then the Anti-Christ will take over this machine and start using it to his own ends. The Anti-Christ will acquire that machine through guile and trickery, through spies and bribery and all other nefarious means known to man.
The eye of Ravenna will be forsaken, when his wings will fail at his feet. The two of Bresse will have made a constitution for Turin and Vercelli, which the French will trample underfoot. (Ι-6)

There will be some research being done on a more sophisticated sort of radar to make it into a sensing-type device that will provide more in-depth information for the operator. They will be trying to develop this device so it can be used in aircraft. But the first experiments with this will be a failure. Somehow the device will put off the type of sympathetic vibrations to cause the structure of the plane to become weakened and dangerous, due to the dissolving of the bonds between some of the molecules in the metal.
https://preview.redd.it/0mukw75167z51.png?width=450&format=png&auto=webp&s=0596a54d853aaa28f2a17aae53efacabdb1282a4
«The eye of Ravenna» is an anagram for a mythological figure (Ravana: great demon in Indian lore) skilled in sorcery and in every magic art transforming themselves into all manner of shapes. «When his wings will fail at his feet», refers to the aircraft. At this time the scientists will end up temporarily abandoning the research in this project due to diplomatic breakdowns and the threat of war, etc. This will be occurring at the time of the Anti-Christ but before the Anti-Christ comes to full power. It will be happening in Europe at the time the Anti-Christ is gaining a power base in the Middle East, so the two events won’t really be related. But it will be one of the events in Europe that lead up to making it easier for the Anti-Christ to take over Europe. The radar has been developed but it’s not been experimented on yet. They will find out soon enough that it is dangerous.
Note: Toward the end of inventor Nicola Tesla’s life he claimed to be able to create a shield in the upper atmosphere that would destroy any incoming aircraft. The Russians developed a machine (called "gyrotron"), based on Tesla’s invention, designed to "sweep the sky of warplanes" by using high-energy microwaves. These high-power microwave weapons would give the operator the same ability to wipe out electronic circuits as a nuclear blast would provide. The main difference is that this new technology is controllable, and can be used without violating nuclear weapons treaties. Tesla described his speed-of-light system as being able to melt aircraft hundreds of miles away.

Another quatrain that sounds like the "gyrotron" is Century II-91 (in "Space exploration") describing secret weapon research carried out by the Soviets. They develop energy fields that guard their northern approach corridors.
7.10 Use of nuclear weapons
Milk, blood, frogs will be prepared in Dailmatia: battle, engaged, plague near Balennes. A great cry will go up throughout Slavonia, then will a monster be born near Ravenna. (II-32)
https://preview.redd.it/fcoev8x267z51.png?width=300&format=png&auto=webp&s=3d0d455e27af6a853bf428bc265084e7261b1290
The «milk, blood, frogs will be prepared in Dalmatia» – refers to both the instruments of death itself – that is, various atomic weapons - plus the labs nearby where new ones are being developed. That last line «then will the monster be born» is about when researchers will develop this ultimate monstrosity in weapons near Ravenna. (In this quatrain Ravenna is also mentioned referring to a place). This research is already going on in your present. It will come to fruition during the time of troubles.

Near the harbor and in two cities will be two scourges, the like of which have never been seen. Hunger, plague within, people thrown out by the sword will cry for help from the great immortal God. (II-6)
The word «harbor» means a body of water, an ocean, separating «two» major «cities». One of these cities is London and the other city is New York. Due to some secret research into bacteriological warfare, two different disease-causing organisms will be released into the atmosphere in such a way as to affect the population of the two cities. It will appear to be two different diseases even though it was caused by the same organism. As a result of this plague the service systems within these great metropolises will break down. The people in the surrounding countryside will panic and voluntarily stay away from the city, in effect putting themselves under quarantine. They will refuse to deliver anything to the cities, so that the people within the cities will be starving to death due to lack of food. Not because there’s no food to be had, but because no one will deliver it and run the risk of being exposed to the plague.
Very near to Auch, Lectoure and Mirande a great fire will fall from the sky for three nights. The cause will appear both stupefying and marvelous; shortly afterwards there will be an earthquake. (I-46)
There’ll be a group of doctors researching into the powers of the various energy fields of the earth. This will be a secret government project. They’ll try to harness these powers and use them for various things including warfare. At the time they finally start doing direct experimentation on the physical world, they will accidentally rupture one of the earth’s fields in such a way that a beam of energy will shoot out into space and draw a stream of meteorites toward the earth. This will happen around the North Sea. The meteorites will be drawn toward the earth because of this alteration of the energy fields around the earth. So in the process of trying to repair the damage there is an earthquake soon after when the stress has built up. The three names I use in the quatrain are code words of the secret project I’ve anagramized.
People in general may not ever know the connection of those words with the event, even though some of them may already be recognizable from various government circles. Those words were partially reminders to myself as to where I was talking about and partially so there would be some key words in there that will make sense as time unfolds. People will of course think this was a spectacular natural phenomenon.

8. The fall of the Anti-Christ - Ogmios
8.1 The fall and death of the Anti-Christ
Anthony, great in name, in his actions base, at the end will be devoured by lice. One who is eager for lead, passing the harbor will be drowned by the elected one. (ΙV-88)
«Ant-hony» (an anagram for Anti-Christ), «will be devoured» by the common people whom he considered to be dirt beneath his feet, no better than «lice». The «elected one» is the great genius, the one who will come after the Anti-Christ to help rebuild the world.
Vercelli, Milan will give the news, the wound will be given at Pavia: To run in the Seine, water, blood and fire through Florence, the unique one falling from high to low calling for help. (VIII-7)
The first line represents the underground network of those who are working to pull down the Anti-Christ, «the unique one falling from high to low calling for help». When the time comes for them to coordinate their efforts for the big push, they are able to swiftly get the word sent out and everyone coordinated. «To run in the Seine, water, blood and fire, through Florence», represents the power of the people themselves. Even though they are of different nationalities and different backgrounds, basic humanity will pull them through and help them to stay united for overthrowing the Anti-Christ.

A voice is heard from the top of Aventine Hill. Go, go, all on both sides! The anger will be appeased by the blood of the red ones. From Rimini and Prato, Colonna expelled. (IX-2)

The «red ones» refer to known followers of the Anti-Christ, beginner souls with a red aura, filled with anger. And the «shout from both sides of Aventine Hill» refers to the fact that everybody will be united against the Anti-Christ.
Saturn in Taurus, Jupiter in Aquarius, Mars in Sagittarius, the sixth of February brings death. Those of Tardaigne so great a breach at Bruges, that the barbarian chief will die at Ponteroso. (VIII-49)
This quatrain has to do with the Earth shift. It will take place in the early part of the 21st century, and many people will leave the planet at that time. The Anti-Christ will still be in power.

«The barbarian chief will die at Ponteroso» represents the Anti-Christ’s death: he dies due to the Earth shift; he will be swept away in a tidal wave. He and his army will be ready to strike because he believes that his power is omnipotent. He also believes that he can control the forces of Earth itself – not just the Earth’s people, but the dynamics of the Earth itself – he isn’t counting on the tidal wave. «Ponteroso» refers to the Alpine area of northern Italy and Switzerland; it is near the place where he will be swept away.
I see a picture: an entire encampment of different types of airplanes, ships, and vehicles that I have never seen before. And it’s all swept away by earthquakes and big water. It will happen very fast. His followers will try to continue the war, but the suffering and pain of the Earth shift itself will cause people to put away their weapons and try to rebuild civilization. It will be a time of climatic tensions among the people of the world, and a time for the Earth to renew itself.

2020.11.14 00:14 pgnikhil 27 [M4F] Paris - They say "Paris is the most romantic place", Why is it not true?

Doing doctorate is never an easy task, especially in Theoretical Mechanics, when you already lived inside the university for 6 months of Lockdown, Paris starts to look like the Sahara Desert, with literally nothing.
Just randomly think of "A beautiful mind" movie about a guy in search of a novel and brilliant idea!
Now back to the topic, if you've moved to Paris, you know how it feels to move into a studio with literally no furniture or appliance, and to have to buy everything from the bed, mattress, bookshelf to the washing machine., it's a deadly business. I watched Emily in Paris, and somehow it does show how it feels to be someone who does speak French to move to the capital city (ofcouse the episodes after 3rd is solely for American women).
In Paris, I've been living in this city for a year now, never actually figured I'd be living here for the next 5 years or more, I'd thought that I'd move to New York, and guess the guy who ate the bat didn't think of me, good riddance.
So a bit about me:
Before moving to Paris, I used to live in Saint Petersburg, Russia (I didn't speak Russian much either). But somehow I worked for the University and they had a wonderful department conducting Go-Karting and a lot of events for the staff.
Yes, teaching at a Russian university is an extraordinary feeling. I used to be a part time lecturer for Polytech while also working for the great Gazpromneft, Crazy experience)
At some point, in January 2019, me and my two friends set a record for the number of Whiskey bottles finished in one month, 45. Although it's not something to be proud of, it is something crazy to brag about.
Ice Skating, snowball wars, and go-Karting were my favorite things in that life.
Before, in another life I was an English language teacher in Poznan, Poland. Why I got there is yet another story. Then Hungary and Budapest.
And way way before that a life in the rainy southern coastal India.
To say something about me, I love painting and sketching, coffee and spice tea, chess and puzzles, photography and videography (the guy with a GoPro and a Stabilizer), and I'm thinking of taking flying lessons in spring in a Cessna. Gamer, well Witcher, PUBG, COD War zone, then Netflix and finally music on YouTube. I love going on bike rides, grabbing kebab, and looking at the evening sky at Jardine du Luxembourg, and having a beer in front of the reconstruction of the Notre Dame.
I suppose this post is going long and boring. What I am looking for is actually someone to have dinner with, someone who would love to spend time on text, call or real life to help me cook something special for us. Maybe you aren't interested in cooking, but if you are into photography or videography, or even if interested in traveling together, send me a message. The next three places to visit for me are Greece, Iceland and Turkey.
Very well, if you read til now it be nice if you thought to say hi! I will wait for you)
Maybe I'm looking for a date, but at some point, a good date is best if you are comfortable being friends first.))

2020.11.12 12:19 RebornInLife The prophecies of the sinister sites in United States of America: The Georgia Guidestones

The prophecies of the sinister sites in United States of America: The Georgia Guidestones
The Georgia Guidestones is a mysterious monument on which are carved ten “commandments” for a “New Age of Reason”. The first commandment? Maintaining the world population under 500 million people. Another sinister fact: the authors of what we now call the American Stonehenge are still a “mystery”… except for those in the know. We will look at the numerous features of this monument, its message calling for a New World Order and explain how it is the work of an occult secret society.
The Georgia Guidestones is an enigmatic granite monument situated in Elbert County, Georgia. Also known as the American Stonehenge, the gigantic structure is almost 20 feet high and is made of six granite slabs, weighing in total 240,000 pounds. The most astonishing detail of the monument is however not its size but the message engraved on it: Ten rules for an “Age of Reason”. These guides touch upon subjects that are associated with the “New World Order”, including massive depopulation, a single world government, the introduction of a new type of spirituality, etc. The authors of those rules have requested to remain totally anonymous and, until now, their anonymity has been duly preserved. However, this mysterious group left a text explaining the reasoning behind the rules, a text that was not discussed online before. With this new information, the purpose behind the Guidestones becomes very clear, leaving little room for hypotheses. The Guidestones describe the ideal world, as envisioned by occult Secret Societies. The monument is, therefore, proof of an existing link between secret societies, the world elite and the push for a New World Order.

The Monument

Quietly standing in Elberton county, the Guidestones will probably gain in relevancy in the next years
Made of Pyramid blue granite, the Georgia Guidestones are meant to withstand the test of time and to communicate knowledge on several levels: philosophically, politically, astronomically, etc. It consists of four major stone blocks, which contain ten guides for living in eight languages: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian. A shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages’ scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. It is important to note that those last four ancient languages are of great importance in the teachings of occult mystery schools, such as the Freemasons and the Rosicrucians, organizations I will discuss later.
The four major stones are arranged in a giant “paddlewheel” configuration which is oriented to the limits of the migration of the sun during the course of the year and also shows the extreme positions of the rising and setting of the sun in its 18.6-year cycle. The center stone has two special features: first, the North Star is always visible through a special hole drilled from the South to the Northside of the center stone; second, another slot aligns with the positions of the rising sun at the time of the summer and winter solstices and at the equinox.

At the base of the Guidestones lies an explanatory tablet listing some of the details of the structure. It also mentions a time capsule buried underneath it. The contents of this time capsule (if it exists) are a total mystery.

The explanatory tablet explains some of the features of the monuments and its authors (more on them later). The opening date of the time capsule has been left blank.
Astronomical features are of great importance in the design of the Guidestones. In a relatively “new” nation such as the United States, monuments that are aligned with celestial bodies are often the work of secret societies, such as the Freemasons. Drawing their teachings from the Mystery schools of Ancient Egypt, Greece or the Druidic Celts, they are known for embedding into monuments some of their “sacred knowledge”.

The 10 Commandments

https://preview.redd.it/5mj5w1ohlsy51.png?width=300&format=png&auto=webp&s=2c9e1ee72b09be61b4fe1166631277761494b5b2
The English version of the Guidelines
The ten guides for a New Age of Reason are as follows:
  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth – beauty – love – seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature – Leave room for nature.
As you can see, the guidelines call for a drastic reduction of the world population, the adoption of new a world language, the creation of a world court and vague allusions to eugenics. In other words, a blueprint for a New World Order.

Depopulation, Planned Parenthood, and Eugenics

The first “commandment” is particularly shocking, since it basically stipulates that 12 out of 13 people on Earth should not exist; basically, that would mean everybody in the world would disappear except half of India. If today’s world population is 6,7 billion, then that is a 92.54% surplus. To consider these figures is mind-boggling. But then, how many people survived in the movie 2012? Not many. Who were they? The earth’s wealthiest people. Is this predictive programming?
The last rule of the Guidestones, “Be not a cancer on the earth – leave room for nature – leave room for nature” is particularly disturbing as it compares human life to cancer on earth. With this state of mind, it is easy to rationalize the extinction of nearly all of the world’s population.
Massive depopulation is an admitted goal of the world’s elite and many important people have openly called for it:
In 1988, Britain’s Prince Philip expressed the wish that, should he be reincarnated, he would want to be “a deadly virus” that would reduce the world population. More recently, Bill Gates said “The world today has 6.8 billion people … that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” Along with tax-deductible donations of enormous amounts of money to help the depopulation cause, “secret meetings” of the world’s elite have been taking place to discuss those issues:
“Some of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population and speed up improvements in health and education. The philanthropists who attended a summit convened on the initiative of Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change. Described as the Good Club by one insider it included David Rockefeller Jr, the patriarch of America’s wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey.” The Sunday Times, May 24th 2009
The second rule (“Guide reproduction wisely – improving diversity and fitness”) basically calls for the inference of lawmakers into the management of family units. If we read between the lines, it requires to the creation of laws structuring the number of children per family. Furthermore, “improving diversity and fitness” can be obtained with “selective breeding” or the sterilization of undesirable members of society. This used to be called “eugenics” until it became politically incorrect because of the Nazis.

One World Government

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” -David Rockefeller, “Memoirs of David Rockefeller” p.405
Most of the other rules of the Guidestones basically call for the creation of a world government, ruled by an “enlightened few”, who would regulate all aspects of human life, including faith, social duties, economy, etc. This idea is far from new, as it has been entertained by Mystery schools for centuries. Manly P. Hall wrote in 1917:
“When the mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance; when the church governs, he is ruled by superstition; and when the state governs, he is ruled by fear. Before men can live together in harmony and understanding, ignorance must be transmuted into wisdom, superstition into an illumined faith, and fear into love. Despite statements to the contrary, Masonry is a religion seeking to unite God and man by elevating its initiates to that level of consciousness whereon they can behold with clarified vision the workings of the Great Architect of the Universe. From age to age the vision of a perfect civilization is preserved as the ideal for mankind. In the midst of that civilization shall stand a mighty university wherein both the sacred and secular sciences concerning the mysteries of life will be freely taught to all who will assume the philosophic life. Here creed and dogma will have no place; the superficial will be removed and only the essential be preserved. The world will be ruled by its most illumined minds, and each will occupy the position for which he is most admirably fitted.” – Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
In “The Secret Destiny of America”, Hall explains the ancient dream of a world government, as entertained by Secret Societies:
“World democracy was the secret dream of the great classical philosophers. Toward the accomplishment of this greatest of all human ends they outlined programs of education, religion, and social conduct directed to the ultimate achievement of a practical and universal brotherhood. And in order to accomplish their purposes more effectively, these ancient scholars bound themselves with certain mystic ties into a broad confraternity. In Egypt, Greece, India, and China, the State Mysteries came into existence. Orders of initiated priest-philosophers were formed as a sovereign body to instruct, advise, and direct the rulers of the States.” -Manly P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America

Explanations Directly from the Anonymous Authors

Since the monument’s erection on March 22, 1980, numerous authors and researchers have attempted to interpret the rationale behind these ten guidelines. Do they truly consist of a blueprint for a New World Order? Are they simply rules to apply in case of a major catastrophe? The best place to get an accurate answer is to ask the authors of the rules themselves. However, since they have chosen to remain anonymous, it is impossible to do so. They did, however, leave an all-important statement, which has been overlooked by nearly all researchers of the Guidestones. This astonishing text, which describes their motives in great detail, can only be found in The Georgia GuidestonesGuidebook, a pamphlet produced by the Granite Company, which produced the monument. Right from the start, it is obvious that the authors of the monument do seek the creation of a New World Order. This is not a “conspiracy theory” or hypothesis. It is written in clear and unequivocal terms. So here is, directly from the pen of the secret authors, the explanation of the 10 rules of the Guidestones (parts in bold have been highlighted by myself, to emphasize noteworthy parts).
https://preview.redd.it/qj2ri3fklsy51.png?width=250&format=png&auto=webp&s=b797a793e11e0539d6e9e791e1cf6d3257175483
Cover of the Georgia Guidestones GuidebookIt is very probable that humanity now possesses the knowledge needed to establish an effective world government. In some way that knowledge must he widely seeded in the consciousness of all mankind. Very soon the hearts of our human family must be touched and warmed so we will welcome a global rule of reason. ‘The group consciousness of our race is blind, perverse, and easily distracted by trivia when it should be focused on fundamentals. We are entering a critical era. Population pressures will soon create political and economic crisis throughout the world. These will make more difficult and at the same time more needed the building of a rational world society. “A first step will be to convince a doubting world that such a society is now possible. Let us keep in view enduring appeals to the collective reason of humanity. Let us draw attention to the basic problems. Let us establish proper priorities. We must order our home here on earth before we reach for the stars. “Human reason is now awakening to its strength. It is the most powerful agency yet released in the unfolding of life on our planet. We must make humanity aware that acceptance of compassionate, enlightened reason will let us control our destiny within the limits inherent in our nature. “It is difficult to seed wisdom in closed human minds. Cultural inertias are not easily overcome. Unfolding world events and the sad record of our race dramatize the shortcomings of traditional agencies in governing human affairs. The approaching crisis may make mankind willing to accept a system of world law which will stress the responsibility of individual nations in regulating internal affairs, and which will assist them in the peaceful management of international frictions. ‘With such a system we could eliminate war, We could provide every person an opportunity to seek a life of purpose and fulfillment. “There are alternatives to Armageddon. They are attainable. But they will not happen without coordinated efforts by millions of dedicated people in all nations of the earth. “We, the sponsors of The Georgia Guidestones®, are a small group of Americans who wish to focus attention on problems central to the present quandary of humanity. We have a simple message for other human beings, now and in the future. We believe it contains self-evident truths, and we intend no bias for a particular creed or philosophy. Yet our message is in some areas controversial. We have chosen to remain anonymous in order to avoid debate and contention which might confuse our meaning, and which might delay a considered review of our thoughts. We believe that our precepts are sound. They must stand on their own merits. “Stonehenge and other vestiges of ancient human thoughts arouse our curiosity but carry no message for our guidance. To convey our ideas across time to other human beings, we erected a monument — a cluster of graven stones. These silent stones will display our ideas now and when we have gone. We hope that they will merit increasing acceptance and that through their silent persistence they will hasten in a small degree the coming age of reason. (…) “We believe that each human being has purpose. Every one of us is a small but significant bit of the infinite. The celestial alignments of the stones symbolize the need for humanity to be square with External principles which are manifest in our own nature, and in the universe around us. We must live in harmony with the infinite. ‘Four large stones in the central cluster are inscribed with ten precepts, each stone carrying the same text in two languages. In the English version the message totals fewer than one hundred words. The languages have been selected for their historical significance and for their impact on people now living. Since there are three thousand living languages, not all could he chosen. “We envision a later phase in the development of the Georgia Guidestones®. It is hoped that other stones can be erected in outer circles to mark the migrations of the sun and perhaps certain other celestial phenomena. These stones would carry our words in the languages of other individuals who share our beliefs and will raise similar stones at international boundaries in the languages of friendly neighbors. They would serve as reminders of the difficulties which all humanity must face together, and would encourage mutual efforts to deal with them rationally and with justice. “We profess no divine inspiration beyond that which can be found in all human minds. Our thoughts reflect our analysis of the problems confronting humanity in this dawning of the atomic age. They outline in general terms certain basic steps which must be taken to establish for humanity a benevolent and enduring equilibrium with the universe. “Human beings are special creatures. We are shepherds for all earthly life. In this world, we play a central role in an eternal struggle between good and evil–between the forces which build and those which would destroy. The Infinite envelops all that exists, even struggle, conflict and change, which may reflect turmoils in the very soul of God. “We humans have been gifted with a small capacity to know and to act– for good or for evil. We must strive to optimize our existence, not only for ourselves but for those who come after us. And we must not be unmindful of the welfare of all other living things whose destinies have been placed in our trust. “We are the major agency through which good and evil qualities of the spirit become actors in our world. Without us there is very little of love, mercy, or compassion. Yet we can also be agents of hate, and cruelty and cold indifference. Only we can consciously work to improve this imperfect world. It is not enough for us to merely drift with the current. The rational world of tomorrow lies ever upstream. “In 1980, as these stones were being raised, the most pressing world problem was the need to control human numbers. In recent centuries technology and abundant fuels have made possible a multiplication of humanity far beyond what is prudent or long sustainable. Now we can foresee the impending exhaustion of those energy sources and the depletion of world reserves of many vital raw materials. “Controlling our reproduction is urgently needed. It will require major changes in our attitudes and customs. Unfortunately, the inertia of human custom can be extreme. This is especially true when those for whom custom is a dominant force are uninformed of the need for change. “Nearly every nation is now overpopulated in terms of a perpetual balance with nature. We are like a fleet of overcrowded lifeboats confronted with an approaching tempest. In the United States of America we are seriously overtaxing our resources to maintain our present population in the existing state of prosperity. We are destroying our farmland and we have grown dangerously dependent upon external sources for oil, metals and other nonrenewable resources. Nations such as Japan, Holland and Haiti are even more seriously overpopulated and, therefore, in greater jeopardy. “In these circumstances, reproduction is no longer exclusively a personal matter. Society must have a voice and some power of direction in regulating this vital function. The wishes of human couples are important, but not paramount. The interests of present society and the welfare of future generations must be given increasing consideration as we develop mechanisms to bring rational control to our childbearing. (…) “Irresponsible childbearing must be discouraged by legal and social pressures. Couples who cannot provide a decent income and support for a child should not produce children to be a burden for their neighbors. Bringing unneeded children into an overcrowded lifeboat is evil. It is unjust to those children. It is harmful for the other occupants and all living things. Society should not encourage or subsidize such behavior.Knowledge and techniques for regulating human reproduction are now in existence. Moral and political leaders throughout the world have a grave responsibility to make this knowledge and these techniques generally available. This could be done with a fraction of the funds which the world now devotes to military purpose. In the long run, diverting funds into this channel could do more than anything else to reduce the tensions which lead to war. “A diverse and prosperous world population in perpetual balance with global resources will be the cornerstone for a rational world order. People of good will in all nations must work to establish that balance. (…) “With the completion of the central cluster of The Georgia Guidestones our small sponsoring group has disbanded. We leave the monument in the safekeeping of the people of Elbert County, Georgia. “If our inscribed words are dimmed by the wear of wind and sun and time, we ask that you will cut them deeper. If the stones should fall, or if they be scattered by people of little understanding. we ask that you will raise them up again. ‘We invite our fellow human beings in all nations to reflect on our simple message. When these goals are some day sought by the generality of mankind, a rational world order can be achieved for all.

Who Are the Authors?

So who was is this “small group of Americans who seek the Age of Reason”? Although their identity is secret, they have left some telling clues to the initiates, unmistakably pointing towards the occult nature of their group. For starters, the text above bears the unmistakable mark of western occultism. We can find references to “As Above, So Below” (The celestial alignments of the stones symbolize the need for humanity to be square with External principles which are manifest in our own nature, and in the universe around us) and to duality (We are the major agency through which good and evil qualities of the spirit become actors in our world. Without us, there is very little of love, mercy, or compassion. Yet we can also be agents of hate, and cruelty and cold indifference). I believe this text alone provides enough proof to conclude that the authors are either Freemasons, Rosicrucians or another hermetic Secret Society. There are however even more obvious clues pointing to the esoteric leanings of the authors, starting with R.C. Christian, the mysterious man who ordered the monument.

R.C. Christian


The unveiling of the Georgia Guidestones. Could one of these people be the mysterious R.C. Christian?
Here is the story of the ordering of the Guidestones as told by the official guidebook.
“What started out as a usual Friday afternoon in mid-summer has ended in the production and erection of one of the world’s most unusual monuments, produced under the most unusual conditions. Joe Fendley, president of Elbert Granite Finishing Company, Inc. in Elberton, Georgia,was spending this Friday afternoon in June 1979 like he spends most Friday afternoons … studying his weekly reports and generally closing up shop for a weekend … and then it all started. A neatly dressed man walked into Fendley’s Tate Street office and said he wanted to buy a monument. Since everyone else in the office was busy, Fendley decided to talk to the stranger himself and explained that his company does not sell directly to the public, but only on a wholesale basis. Not to be discouraged, the middle-aged man who identified himself only as Mr. Robert C. Christian, said he wanted to know the cost of building a monument to the conservation of mankind and began telling Fendley what type of monument he wanted. With this he outlined the size in metric measurements. Fendley admitted that his first reaction to Mr. Christian was not very good, but after listening for about 20 minutes and learning the massive size of the monument he wished to purchase and have erected, Fendley decided he should take this man seriously.” – Ibid.

The name of R.C. Christian on the explanatory tablet with a nice typo in “pseudonyn”)
If the name R.C. Christian was simply a meaningless pseudonym, why would it engraved on to the monument for posterity? Could the name be of any significance? Well, it is. R.C. Christian is a clear reference to Christian Rosenkreuz whose English name is Christian Rose Cross, the legendary founder of the Rosicrucian Order. Some might say that the resemblance between R.C. Christian and Christian Rose Cross is the result of an odd coincidence. As we will see, it is however only one of the MANY references to Rosicrucianism associated with the monument. This is only one piece of the puzzle, but an important piece nonetheless.

The Rosicrucians


Seeking entry into the Rosicrucian mysteries. Notice the candidate is showing the hand sign of secrecy. Also notice the letters “RC”, as in R.C. Christian.
The Rosicrucians are known for publishing three Manifestos, published at the beginning of the 17th century: Fama Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis, Confessio Fraternitatis and Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz.
These anonymous works, surrounded by mystery, cryptically introduced the general public to the Rosicrucian philosophy, while announcing a great transformation of the political and intellectual landscape of Europe. The Age of Enlightenment soon followed, accompanied by the fall of feudal Monarchies. The Georgia Guidestones seem to accomplish the same functions as the Rosicrucian manifestos, by calling for an important world transformation and maintaining a climate of mystery.

The Age of Reason


Does “Age of Reason” refer to Thomas Paine, a prominent Rosicrucian?
There are numerous references to the concept of “Age of Reason” within the Guidestones. Could they be a reference to the classic work of Thomas Paine entitled … Age of Reason?

The Age of Reason: Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology, is a deistic treatise written by eighteenth-century British radical and American revolutionary Thomas Paine. The work critiques institutionalized religion and challenges the inerrancy of the Bible. Its tenets advocate reason in place of revelation, a viewpoint that is obviously shared by the authors of the Guidestones.
It is a known fact that Thomas Paine was a leading member of the Rosicrucian Fraternity in America.
“The Rosicrucian Fraternity existed in America prior to the First American Revolution. In 1774, the great Council of Three (the Fraternity’s ultimate governing body) was composed of Benjamin Franklin, George Clymer and Thomas Paine.” – The Fraternitas Rosae Crucis, soul.org
In The Secret Destiny of America, Manly P. Hall describes Thomas Paine as an important crusader for the march towards an ideal world government.
“Of Thomas Paine it has been said that he did more to win the independence of the colonies with his pen than George Washington accomplished with his sword, Only complete reorganization of government, religion, and education would bring us even today to the perfectionist state Tom Paine envisioned”. – Manly P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America
This thinly veiled to Thomas Paine is another piece of the Rosicrucian puzzle, which leads me to believe that the authors were either Freemasons (who have incorporated Rosicrucian teachings into their degrees) or members of the Rosicrucian fraternity.
Furthermore, as if to make things more obvious, the Georgia Guidestone booklet mentions that Joe H. Fendley Sr., the president of Elberton Granite, as well as many other people involved with the building of the monument, were Masons. Was this the reason of the selection of these men by the anonymous sponsors of the monuments?
“Fendley is also involved in fraternal activities. Raised a Master Mason in 1958, he is now a member of Philomathea Masonic Lodge #25 in Elberton, is a York Rite and Scottish Rite 32° Mason, and was admitted in the Yaarab Shrine Temple in Atlanta in 1969. He was President of the Savannah Valley Shrine Club from 1972 through 1973. The Potentate of the Yaarah Shrine Temple awarded Fendley the “Divan Degree of Distinction” in 1973, and appointed Ambassador in 1975.” – The Georgia Guidestones Guidebook

The Colin Cramphorn Memorial Lecture (I)
The Importance of Being Candid: On China’s Relationship with the Rest of the World
by
Matthew Pottinger
Deputy National Security Advisor to the President of the United States
Matthew Pottinger is Assistant to the President and US Deputy National Security Advisor. Mr. Pottinger served as the Senior Director for Asia since the start of the Trump Administration in January 2017. In that role, Mr. Pottinger advised the President on Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, and Oceania, and coordinated U.S. policy for the region.
Before joining the National Security Council staff, Mr. Pottinger ran Asia research at a New York-based investment firm and, prior to that, was the founder of a consultancy serving American investors in East Asia. Mr. Pottinger served as a U.S. Marine, with active duty in Japan and three combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, followed by reserve duty at the Pentagon and the Defense Intelligence Agency. Prior to military service, Mr. Pottinger lived and worked in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China from 1997-2005, reporting for Reuters and The Wall Street Journal. He is fluent in Mandarin.
INTRODUCTION
DEAN GODSON: Good afternoon, my name is Dean Godson, I’m Director of Policy Exchange, I have the privilege, pleasure of being your host for this 9th Colin Cramphorn Memorial Lecture. As many of you will know and remember, Colin was the much-loved Chief Constable of West Yorkshire at the time of the 7/7 bombings, the last Deputy Chief Constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary and first Acting Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland. He was taken from us tragically early by cancer, still remembered with much fondness. We’re delighted that his widow, Lynn, is here with us today online and with other members of the family. I know you will all wish to, on behalf of everyone here, to wish them all the very best and to thank them for continuing to be patrons of this lecture which would have, I know, meant so much to Colin.
As I say, this is the 9th such lecture and our guest of honour today, our keynoter, Matt Pottinger is Deputy National Security Advisor to the President of the United States. He was previously a distinguished journalist with the Wall Street Journal and then joined the US Marine Corps and won combat decorations for his service in Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s one of the leading authorities in the US government on China and that is why uniquely today we are innovating today here at Policy Exchange because as a more than fluent Mandarin speaker, Matt’s address today will be delivered in Mandarin for the sake of audiences across the world and indicating his belief that China is not defined solely by the People’s Republic of China and its representatives, that there is a wider engagement to be had with audiences across the world, Mandarin speaking and others, so good evening to anyone coming in from the Indo Pacific region and China in particular, good morning to all of you in Washington.
Matt, as I say, will make his remarks first in Mandarin and we’ll then open the floor to questions for 35 minutes or so of questions. As I say, we are delighted to be doing this here at Policy Exchange with the importance of this subject of the wider Indo Pacific region and China in particular. We have our own Indo Pacific Commission, chaired by former Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper, which will be publishing in the near future its findings and it work. Also, because of the particular importance of this subject and because of the proximity to the US Presidential election, we are having actually two Cramphorn Memorial Lectures in close succession, one obviously the one today by Matt Pottinger and the other next week by Dr Kurt Campbell of the Asia Group, one of the leading authorities on Asia from the last Democratic administration of Barack Obama, of particular significance because people are increasingly aware in this country that in an era of polarisation in America, the area of the Indo Pacific and China is one subject where discussion and even a measure of consensus is still possible in the United States. So, thank you to Matt Pottinger for honouring us in this way, we look forward to hearing your unique address and insights and then open to wider discussion, thank you Matt.
SPEECH TRANSCRIPTION
I’d like to thank Dean Godson and Policy Exchange for inviting me to deliver the ninth annual Colin Cramphorn lecture. We all look forward to a time when we can gather again in person for events like this. With new vaccines and therapeutics on the near horizon, I’m optimistic that day will soon arrive. In the meantime, let’s pretend we’re at the Red Lion pub and enjoy this convivial, trans-Atlantic video conference between Westminster and the White House. I’m betting on a lively discussion following my set remarks.
As most of you know, England and America are two countries separated by a common language. In order to bridge that divide, I’ve decided to give my remarks in Mandarin.
Truth be told, Dean Godson asked me to bust out my Chinese for the sake of higher ratings. Dean knew that a video of an earlier speech I delivered in Mandarin, about China’s May Fourth movement, was viewed more than one million times. Dean may have also known that a subsequent video I recorded in English for the Ronald Reagan Institute was, by contrast, barely noticed by even my own staff.
Naturally, Dean calculated that a white guy speaking in stilted Mandarin would be a bigger box-office draw than whatever message the white guy might be trying to convey.
So be it. As a character on The Simpsons once put it: “Come for the freak, stay for the food.”
Delivering these remarks in Mandarin has another benefit: It allows friends in China to join a conversation that is taking place with increasing regularity around the globe: A conversation about China’s relationship with the rest of the world.
FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN HISTORY
But first, a smidgen of history to underscore what’s at stake.
Near the end of the 18th century, across the water and many miles from England, a group of visionary men drew up a constitution. The document they framed was designed to limit the powers of government, assert the rights of the people, and chart a path toward what they hoped would be a lasting democracy.
I’m talking, of course, about… Poland.
“Poland?” you ask. Don’t be embarrassed if 1790s Poland didn’t turn up in your high-school textbooks. Unlike the more famous U.S. Constitution, which was adopted just a few years earlier and still serves as the supreme law of the American republic, the Polish experiment with constitutional government was strangled in its infancy.
The problem was foreign interference. A faction of the Polish nobility felt threatened by the influence they would lose under the new constitution. So they sought Russian help in reestablishing the old order. Catherine the Great seized the opportunity to invade and then partition Poland—she took the east and Prussia took the west.
Then, after defeating a revolt led by Tadeusz Kosciuszko, a Polish military hero of the American Revolution, Russia—along with Prussia and Austria—carried out a final partition of Poland-Lithuania in 1795. The young Commonwealth was erased from the map altogether.
I mention Poland’s failed experiment for two reasons: First, it’s a reminder that democracy, while unrivaled in terms of legitimacy and results, is neither invincible nor inevitable. Second, interference in the affairs of free societies by autocratic regimes is a phenomenon that is waxing, not waning.
To stave off meddling, it never hurts to have favorable geography—a luxury Poland didn’t enjoy. Poland’s 18th Century neighbors were powerful European monarchies. America’s neighbors, by contrast, were the two best friends a fledgling democracy could ever ask for—the Atlantic and the Pacific.
FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN THE CYBER AGE
But in the cyber age, autocratic governments can concoct disinformation, inject it into the public discourse of nations, and amplify it through self-improving algorithms from the other side of the earth. Are the blessings of oceans and channels sufficient barriers against this sort of meddling?
Not if the citizens of free and sovereign nations yield to complacency. Nations, including democracies, are undergoing the first stage of a real-life “stress test” of their ability to withstand covert, coercive, and corrupt influence by high-tech autocracies.
This may seem odd, because the autocracies are so vastly outnumbered. But they compensate by marshalling the full resources of their states, by learning from one another’s successes and failures, and sometimes by coordinating with one another.
Economic strength isn’t a prerequisite for waging cyber warfare. Thus, we see hackers tasked by Moscow and Tehran attempting to undermine confidence in the upcoming U.S. presidential election. But no regime has more riding on its ability to influence the perceptions, policies and priorities of foreign populations than the Chinese Communist Party.
THE PARTY’S “MAGIC WEAPON”
In truth, we should’ve expected this. The Communist Party’s victory in the Chinese civil war owed less to its combat prowess against superior Nationalist forces than to its ability to infiltrate and manipulate the language, thinking, and actions of its adversaries. This is why the current Party leadership is redoubling its emphasis on “United Front” work.
The defining feature of United Front work is that it’s not transparent. The clue is in the name.
China’s United Front Work system is a gigantic government function with no analogue in democracies. China’s leaders call it a “magic weapon,” and the Party’s 90 million members are required to support its activities. While the system has many branches, the United Front Work Department alone has four times as many cadres as the U.S. State Department has foreign-service officers. But instead of practicing diplomacy with foreign governments—the Chinese foreign ministry handles that—the United Front gathers intelligence about, and works to influence, private citizens overseas. The focus is on foreign elites and the organizations they run. Think of a United Front worker as a cross between an intelligence collector, a propagandist, and a psychologist.
I know that sounds like the opening line to a joke. But United Front work is serious business, and it affects you and me. After all, the raw material for psychologists is data about their patients. The Party is compiling digital dossiers on millions of foreign citizens around the world. The exposure last month of a Chinese database on at least 2.4 million people around the world—including many of us on this call—speaks to the Party’s sheer ambition to wed traditional Leninist techniques with powerful new tools of digital surveillance.
The company building these dossiers, Shenzhen Zhenhua Data Information Technology Co, supports what its CEO reportedly calls “psychological warfare.” Zhenhua harvests and organizes public and private data about us for exploitation by its clients, which are organs of the Chinese security apparatus, according to its website.
The dossiers Zhenhua is compiling include people in virtually every country on earth, no matter how small. They include members of royal families and members of parliament, judges and clerks, tech mavens and budding entrepreneurs, four-star admirals and the crewmembers of warships, professors and think-tankers, and national and local officials. They also include children, who are fair game under Beijing’s rules of political warfare. No one is too prominent or too obscure.
Zhenhua isn’t a particularly large or sophisticated actor in the United Front world. It may even be acting opportunistically, because it thinks the Party will reward it. Far more powerful tech firms, including famous Chinese app developers, play a much bigger role in this kind of work.
Assembling dossiers has always been a feature of Leninist regimes. The material is used now, as before, to influence and intimidate, reward and blackmail, flatter and humiliate, divide and conquer. What’s new is how easy we’ve made it for autocrats to accumulate so much intimate data about ourselves—even people who’ve never set foot in China. We leave our intellectual property, our official documents, and our private lives on the table like open books. The smart phones we use all day to chat, search, buy, view, bank, navigate, network, worship and confide make our thoughts and actions as plain to cyber spooks as the plumes of exhaust from a vintage double-decker bus.
The Chinese Communist Party has reorganized its national strategy around harnessing that digital exhaust to expand the Party’s power and reach.
THE PARTY’S GOALS
But what’s the ultimate point of all the data collection and exploitation? What is Beijing trying to influence us to do? The Party’s goal, in short, is to co-opt or bully people—and even nations—into a particular frame of mind that’s conducive to Beijing’s grand ambitions. It’s a paradoxical mindset—a state of cognitive dissonance that is at once credulous and fearful, complacent and defeatist. It’s a mindset that on Monday says “It’s too early to say whether Beijing poses a threat,” and by Friday says “They’re a threat, all right, but it’s too late to do anything about it now.” To be coaxed into such a mindset is to be seduced into submission—like taking the “blue pill” in The Matrix.
How does Beijing do it? This is where United Front propaganda and psychology come into play. The Party’s overseas propaganda has two consistent themes: “We own the future, so make your adjustments now.” And: “We’re just like you, so try not to worry.” Together, these assertions form the elaborate con at the heart of all Leninist movements.
The Kiwi scholar Anne-Marie Brady, a pioneer in sussing out United Front ploys, points to the Party’s global campaigns—“One Belt, One Road” and the “Community of Common Destiny for Mankind”—as classic specimens of the genre.
Brady calls United Front work a “tool to corrode and corrupt our political system, to weaken and divide us against each other, to erode the critical voice of our media, and turn our elites into clients of the Chinese Communist Party, their mouths stuffed with cash.”
The con doesn’t always work, of course. Facts sometimes get in the way. The profound waste and corruption of many One Belt, One Road projects is an example. When the con doesn’t induce acquiescence, the Party often resorts to intimidation and repression.
Take Hong Kong, where demonstrators took to the streets by the millions last year to protest Beijing’s efforts to undermine Hong Kong’s rule of law. If “socialism with Chinese characteristics” was the future, the demonstrators seemed to prefer staying firmly in the present.
So Beijing resorted to Plan B. It demolished Deng Xiaoping’s “One Country, Two Systems” framework and deprived Hong Kong of the autonomy that made it the most spectacular city in Asia.
HOW WE DEFEND OURSELVES
None of this is reason for panic, mind you. It’s true the West is going through one of its periodic spells of self-doubt, when extreme political creeds surface on the left and the right, and some ideas are so foolish that, to paraphrase George Orwell, only an intellectual could believe them. So let’s pull up our socks and get back to common sense.
On the foreign policy front, President Trump has ingrained two principles worth sharing here, because they’re designed to preserve our sovereignty, promote stability, and reduce miscalculation. They are reciprocity and candor.
Reciprocity is the straightforward idea that when a country injures your interests, you return the favor. It is eminently reasonable and readily understood, including by would-be aggressors. It’s an inherently defensive approach, rooted in notions of fair play and deterrence.
Candor is the idea that democracies are safest when we speak honestly and publicly about and to our friends, our adversaries, and ourselves. This can take some getting used to. When President Reagan was preparing to give a speech in Berlin, several of his staff tried desperately to get him to remove a phrase they found embarrassing and needlessly provocative. Luckily, President Reagan went with his gut, and delivered the most famous line of his presidency: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”
Some will argue that confrontational rhetoric turns countries into enemies. This old chestnut of the U.S. diplomatic corps masquerades as humble policy, but is in fact quite arrogant because it presumes nations act primarily in reaction to whatever the United States says or does.
Clever adversaries use such thinking against us. By portraying truth-telling as an act of belligerence, autocrats try to badger democracies into silence—and often succeed. “This is the first and most important defeat free nations can ever suffer,” President Reagan said at Guildhall. “When free peoples cease telling the truth about and to their adversaries, they cease telling the truth to themselves.” Public candor actually promotes peace by reducing the space for strategic blunders.
Public candor applies to our internal affairs, too. There can be no double standard.
When Louis Armstrong performed in the Soviet Union as a cultural ambassador of the State Department, he spoke frankly about racial bigotry in the United States. When Reagan famously referred to the Soviet Union as an “Evil Empire,” he explored America’s own “legacy of evil”—including anti-Semitism and slavery—in the very same speech.
XINJIANG
So it is in a spirit of friendship, reflection, and, yes, candor, that I ask friends in China to research the truth about your government’s policies toward the Uyghur people and other religious minorities. Ask yourselves why the editors of The Economist, in a cover article this week, called those policies “a crime against humanity” and “the most extensive violation in the world today of the principle that individuals have a right to liberty and dignity simply because they are people.”
As a Marine who spent three combat deployments fighting terrorists, I can tell you that what is taking place in Xinjiang bears no resemblance whatsoever to an ethical counter-terrorism strategy. Such abuses are what the Chinese diplomat P.C. Chang was trying to prevent when he helped draft the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. There is no credible justification I can find in Chinese philosophy, religion, or moral law for the concentration camps inside your borders.
WHAT EVIL FEARS MOST
Colin Cramphorn, for whom this lecture is named, was Chief Constable of West Yorkshire before his death from cancer in 2006. Colin worked the most notorious terrorism cases in British history, from the Omagh car-bombing to the London suicide attacks of 2005. When your day job is to confront evil, it’s hard to avoid dwelling at night on big questions about the human heart. Colin, a voracious and varied reader, sometimes consulted the writings of C.S. Lewis.
I’m told he found particular solace in The Screwtape Letters—Lewis’s brilliantly imagined monologue of a demon toiling in Satan’s bureaucracy. (John Cleese recorded a pitch-perfect rendition of the book a few decades ago, by the way. It’s on YouTube. I’m told Andy Serkis has recorded a version that gives Cleese a run for his money.)
“The safest road to Hell,” old Screwtape advises his nephew, “is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”
I suspect Colin drew hope and courage from the knowledge that evil, properly identified and exposed, is frail—even farcical. And that calling it out in public—giving it “signposts”—inoculates us against temptation and liberates us from fear. As my friend Tony Dolan told me: “The great paradox of institutionalized evil is that it can be enormously powerful but also enormously fragile. Thus, it is compulsively aggressive and ultimately self-destructive. It senses its own moral absurdity. It knows it is a raft on a sea of ontological good.”
“What evil fears most is the publicly spoken truth.”
So speak up, everyone. And raise a glass tonight to the good constable Colin Cramphorn and to like-minded public servants the world over. They have our love and our thanks.
QUESTION AND ANSWER
DEAN GODSON: Matt, thank you for a truly brilliant and memorable address. You have now very kindly agreed to answer questions. Just two items of protocol here, please put your virtual hands up and please also look into the camera when you’re speaking because of the exigencies of the virtual event. The final house rule that all of you will be aware of, no question too outrageous, you just have to state your name and organisation before pronouncing. David Brunston, if you can just restate for the record your name and organisation, you wanted to ask a question. David, we can’t hear you. A number of people have been texting in to me, some of them wanted to be asked anonymously, Matt, so if I can use Chairman’s privilege to ask on their behalf. A little more detail, is the strategy, the CCP strategy of wolf diplomacy, is it too far gone now? Could you say more in a bit more detail, they ask, what in your view, the US administration’s perspective, the counter measures should be?
MATT POTTINGER: Dean, thanks so much. You know, I think in a way the wolf warrior diplomacy is an expression of a moment of a kind of desperate opportunism. In a sense, I think as many countries have caught on to the scope of Beijing’s ambitions and have started to push back where they think or the community of nations think they go too far or are damaging to countries sovereignty or interests. I think the process of pushing back has led to a bit of a dropping of the fig leaf, if you will, and this more combative approach to diplomacy, it’s a more coercive approach to diplomacy so I think that what all countries need to do – and this is for the sake of stability by the way, this is in the interest of re-establishing a kind of equilibrium and more constructive, results-oriented relationship between China and the community of nations. I think the two ideas that I talked about in the speech and that are central to President Trump’s approach, the reciprocity but also the candour, will help go quite some way in restoring that balance.
DEAN GODSON: Brilliant, thank you and I’ve been asked to ask the question on behalf of David Brunston of Reuters and the question he wants to ask is how would you expect US policy under a second Trump administration to evolve and how it would differ from a policy that the Biden administration might pursue?
MATT POTTINGER: Yes, so people advising Vice President Biden talk about what he thinks a good policy would be but in terms of President Trump’s approach, I think first you have to take stock of the fact that there is a new consensus and the forging of that new consensus about China is something that has happened under President Trump’s watch, it is in no small part because of the policies that he’s taken and the result has been that it has actually, as you alluded to in the introductory remarks, Dean, it’s a bipartisan, it’s a whole of society consensus and as you read polls popping up all over the world, you see that it’s not just an American consensus anymore either. We’ve led that consensus, that’s been President Trump’s hallmark, probably the most key legacy and shift in American foreign policy in quite some time but there are a lot of other countries that are now starting to, at a minimum, share a very similar consensus on the diagnosis of what the problem is and increasingly, a lot of countries, our European allies, allies across the Indo Pacific region and beyond, who are exploring and in some cases taking similar steps to those that President Trump has advocated for.
DEAN GODSON: Thank you. The next question is from the Right Honourable Lord Mandelson, former Deputy Prime Minister and European Commissioner. Peter, your question if you can come in.
PETER MANDELSON: Dean, thank you very much indeed and I hope you can hear me.
DEAN GODSON: Loud and clear.
RT HON LORD MANDELSON: I have been rather impressed by Matt Pottinger’s lecture and I find myself actually a supporter of both reciprocity and candour and as somebody who, when I was Trade Commissioner, was equally accused of using confrontational rhetoric towards China when I described them as a trade juggernaut out of control, I can see its usefulness. Can I ask though this question to Mr Pottinger? For China in a sense to lose, the West has to win and the West has not been winning during the last four years. With humility and self-criticism, could Mr Pottinger explain to us why he thinks the West has not been strengthened in its coherence and its unity during the last four years and why we have been less able to act in a joined-up way towards China and other international questions than we have during other periods since the Second World War?
DEAN GODSON: Thank you. Matt.
MATT POTTINGER: Thank you, that’s a great question and a great thoughtful prelude to the question as well, thank you. Look, President Trump came in following what I believe and certainly the people who elected him believed was a lengthy period of failure in American foreign policy and really more of a failure of broader foreign policy in the West. We got in lengthy wars under sort of a I think a misimpression that we would be able to inject democracy into far corners of the earth by the barrel of a gun, those have been enormously costly. Those are things that really have done damage, I think, to the West.
China’s entry into the WTO and all of the policies, really the assumptions that led to that and I shared those assumptions 20 years ago so I don’t blame or cast aspersions for what was actually very optimistic bold policy taken by the United States and the West to try to help China become more liberal, first economically and then we hoped politically as well but I think we’ve now taken stock of the fact that some of those assumptions were generous but misplaced. In fact, really the high watermark of China’s opening and liberalisation was December 11th 2001, which I think was the date China entered the WTO. After that, all of those reforms that we so eagerly anticipated by bringing China into the WTO, actually flatlined, things started to plateau for about a decade and over the course of the decade that we’ve just concluded, we saw those reforms go into reverse.
We’ve seen a far greater concentration of power in the hands of the state over the economy, over people’s lives and what we’ve learned is that optimistic period, the reform and opening period if you like, was unfortunately an interregnum, it was an interregnum between the totalitarianism of Mao’s rule and a new technologically enhanced totalitarianism under the current leadership and I’ve heard some refer to it as an attempt at so-called exquisite totalitarianism. I think that that’s a good encapsulation of what has now being attempted, this experiment that Beijing is running to see whether or not it can improve on the failed approach of all the other Leninist states of the 20th century by compensating for the failures of those systems through advanced technology and totalitarian surveillance. So, in short, I think this period that you’re referring to that you characterise as a sort of insufficient pulling together of the West, you’ve got to have a little bit of historical perspective that we’re going through a massive change from the post-Cold War era of the last few decades to a new one that takes stock of some of the failures of the last 30 years. Thanks.
DEAN GODSON: Brilliant, thank you. Next, Deborah Haynes, Foreign Editor, Sky News. Deborah, are you coming in?
DEBORAH HAYNES: Hopefully. Hi, thank you very much, thank you for letting me ask a question and thank you for that fascinating presentation. In terms of how you were describing how the United Front is implementing China’s policies, is what we’re seeing now, given that China is this rising power, a kind of a global battle over ideologies? I mean there’s no rule book that says that China has to adopt the rules based system and carry on using it if it’s the predominant power and if that’s the case, could you just spell out what the danger is if liberal democracies, who are far more fractured now than they have been, if they don’t stand together and stand up for the ideologies of free speech and human rights and all the things that we believe in, that we will see this big global division between those who side with China technologically and ideologically, and those who side with the West, much more than we’ve ever seen before?
MATT POTTINGER: That’s also a great question. So, American foreign policy has had this element, this tradition of realpolitik which, you know, there are nations that calculate on the basis of their own cold self-interest and also running in our veins is this tradition of our own revolutionary liberal democratic world view. They run in our veins like iced water and hot water and hopefully they remain in good enough balance that your blood stays at a good temperature. But you’ve hit on something, the truth is that you cannot ignore the ideological dimensions and ideology is just a fancy word for world view, right. We do have a markedly different world view from the Chinese Communist Party, a different approach to the world, different ideas about quite a lot and that’s not true of China as a whole. The Chinese Communist Party is firmly in command of China, obviously, but China is a lot of things. It is a pretty remarkable civilisation that I have devoted a huge part of my adult life to living in and studying and enjoying and I still do; the history, the culture and the unbelievable drive and energy and entrepreneurialism of the Chinese people. But that ideological dimension is unavoidable and if we try to ignore it, if we try to pretend that it’s only a matter of cold self-interest on both sides, that it’s a Thucydides trap as some like to frame it, I think we’d actually put ourselves on a path towards a more destabilised future than if we were to talk quite frankly to ourselves, our allies and yes, to our adversaries about those differences so that we can avoid miscalculation.
DEAN GODSON: Thank you, Matt. Next question from Alexander Downer, our Chairman of Trustees here at Policy Exchange and, of course, the longest serving Australian Foreign Minister in the country’s history and High Commissioner in London. Alexander.
HON ALEXANDER DOWNER AC: Thanks Dean, I hope you can hear me. I think, speaking as an Australian, it has to be said that we Australians had a fairly solid although not tension-free relationship with China for many years under Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao and Australians have been really taken aback by the aggression in recent years of the Xi Jinping administration so my question is a little bit like Peter Mandelson’s, if there’s a second Trump administration what specific steps will the United States be taking to help countries like Australia which have been targeted by China, particularly Australian trade has been targeted by China, to help build a sense of collective security amongst liberal democracies in the Indo-Pacific region.
MATT POTTINGER: Yes, that’s a great remark that you made and Australia has been in some sense the canary in the coal mine. Australia – by the way, when people claim that provocative and frank, candid language is what causes China to act out in this sort of wolf warrior way, I always point to Australia as well as India as the counter examples there because India and Australia are two countries that had, really went out of their way to extend warmth to China in their people to people and commercial ties. These were countries that did seek to integrate their economies certainly, especially in the case of Australia and yet, when the Australian government just earlier this year had the temerity to ask the World Health Organisation whether there could be a general investigation into the origins of the coronavirus, China retaliated for that wholly reasonable request that Australia made. By the way, the World Health Organisation members voted in the largest majority in the organisation’s history in favour of the motion that Australia raised to investigate the origins, how is it that millions of us now have been infected with this disease? China retaliated by putting tariffs on Australian barley, cancelling beef exports and describing … their arch-propagandist said that Australia is chewing gum stuck to the bottom of China’s shoe and it is time to scrape it off. So, there you have a pretty good counter-argument to the notion that by being extra-friendly to China and hiding some of our candour, that that would lead to a happier bilateral relationship doesn’t stand up.

2020.11.07 19:13 ALiddleBiddle Maxwell family stolen pension fortune, hidden away by Epstein?

Link to video
He knew Jeffrey Epstein for more than three decades and had a unique insight into how the disgraced financier made his billions.
Now, American investigative journalist Edward Jay Epstein – no relation – unpicks the mystery of how the late sex offender embarked on his astonishing path to riches…
Ghislaine Maxwell may be the last person alive who knows the answers to one of the decade’s great mysteries: how did Jeffrey Epstein amass his fortune and where is it now?
For one of the theories is that Maxwell’s father Robert bankrolled him.
When Epstein died a year ago, his visible assets added up to an extraordinary £467 million. But that was ‘only the tip of the iceberg’, according to the head of a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund who I first met at Epstein’s mansion in New York.
The question this financier could not answer was how Epstein, who he had never known to actually conclude a successful business deal, had accumulated such a tremendous fortune. Nor could any of Wall Street’s so-called ‘masters of the universe’.
I first met Epstein at a large Halloween party in Manhattan in 1987. He was bright and charming, but whatever other talents he may have possessed, they didn’t include, as far as I could see, the conventional Wall Street money-making wizardry of arbitrage – wheeling and dealing in assets, stocks or currency in the markets.
Soon afterwards, he invited me to tea at the Mayfair Hotel and told me he was a financial bounty hunter, hired to track down hidden money from notorious offshore havens such as Andorra, Fiji, Gibraltar and the Cayman Islands. This suggested to me that he might be implicated in the shady business of hiding it there in the first place.
He then demonstrated his talent for magically transforming economy-class air tickets into first-class ones.
I gave him my cheapo ticket to Spain, and he gave it back to me the next day with a first-class sticker. A free upgrade? It seemed too good to be true and, indeed, when I tried to board the flight, I was told my first-class ticket was a fake.
It turned out that Epstein had simply obtained a cache of first-class upgrade stickers, which he pasted on cheaper tickets in the hope the true price paid wouldn’t be noticed at the check-in desk. Everything about Epstein was a con. I never thought: ‘Here’s an honest guy.’
Back then, Epstein was not yet a tycoon. He lived in a one-bedroom apartment at Solow Tower at 265 East 66th Street. At the time, there was a rent strike, so he lived there without paying a cent.
On occasions he pretended he lived in the penthouse by inviting guests up to the roof garden and getting a deli to deliver food.
He also had a plush office at Villard House, which he shared with the wife of a former New York governor. The rent was paid by Steven Hoffenberg, a tall guy with dark eyes, who owned a bill-collection agency, Towers International.
I remember being impressed when Epstein introduced me to Hoffenberg because he had an armed bodyguard.
It emerged about a year later, in 1988, that he was running a £380 million Ponzi scheme [a scam promising high rates of return with little risk to investors] for which he served 18 years in prison.
The cloud around Epstein darkened further when, to show off his power, he gave me a program which allowed me to remotely access his computer via my telephone modem, which seemed technically advanced for the time.
He said I could use it to get real-time quotes on the stock market, but it also revealed that he had a cashflow problem. Not only were there letters from people demanding the return of their money, but one New York financier reported that a cheque from Epstein for $83,000 had bounced a second time.
In early 1989, Epstein and I stopped speaking. I wrote a regular column called Wall Street Babylon in the Manhattan, Inc magazine.
I didn’t mention him by name, but I was becoming increasingly wary that Epstein was a scam artist and I described the barely legal form of insider trading in which he was clearly involved. Epstein was livid and broke off all contact. Even so, I couldn’t help being intrigued by his stratospheric rise into the upper echelons of the super-rich. As I watched from the sidelines, he seemed to be nothing short of a modern-day version of F Scott Fitzgerald’s Jay Gatsby.
We had mutual friends who informed me that he had moved from his fake penthouse to an enormous mansion on 71st Street, previously owned by Victoria’s Secret and Abercrombie & Fitch tycoon Les Wexner.
By now, Epstein had also acquired a ranch outside Santa Fé, New Mexico, a private island in the Virgin Islands and an apartment on Avenue Foch in Paris that had a stuffed baby elephant in the centre of the living room.
On his private airliner, he gave former President Bill Clinton rides to Africa. Prince Andrew was another associate and I remember being fascinated that Epstein was constantly surrounded by the most beautiful women I had ever seen in my life.
Astoundingly, nothing – not even a 13-month prison sentence for pleading guilty to soliciting under-age girls in Florida – could impinge this upward trajectory into an elite world of money and power.
Then, out of the blue and after a hiatus of 24 years, Epstein called me in 2013 and invited me to his mansion. He said he wanted to ask me about Vladimir Nabokov, who wrote Lolita, about a precociously seductive girl. I had known the author many decades earlier.
I agreed to go for a different reason: finding out how he made, and continued to make, his fortune.
As a convicted felon, Epstein would not be allowed a licence to manage money. Yet, as he told me with a glistening, know-it-all smile, he was doing better than ever.
He now had homes in New York, Palm Beach, Paris and New Mexico, and he was in the process of buying a mansion in Saudi Arabia. He also had a private fleet of jets and a helicopter.
When I asked about his business, he replied: ‘I manage money for a few select clients.’
On the walls were photos of him with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Emirate Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.
I asked: ‘Are these clients?’ He said some were.
‘What about Russia? Any clients there?’ He shrugged and said he often flew to Moscow to see Vladimir Putin.
I found this hard to swallow. It was implausible that such powerful world leaders would trust the management of their personal funds to a convicted sex offender.
After all, if they wanted financial wizardry, there was no shortage of well-connected investment bankers in London or New York. Some don’t ask too many inconvenient questions. So what special talent did Epstein have?
I would never find out, at least not from the horse’s mouth.
Jeffrey Epstein was found dead on the floor of his cell in July last year. His death, an apparent suicide by hanging, only deepened the mystery behind his wealth.
No one I spoke with knew for sure where his initial windfall came from. So I decided to begin at the beginning with the man Epstein introduced me to in 1987 – the Ponzi scheme fraudster Steven Hoffenberg.
I learned that one of the first things Hoffenberg did after he was released from prison in 2013 was to go uninvited to Epstein’s home and demand a large sum of money. Epstein called him crazy, and threw him out.
However, Hoffenberg’s version of events is all-too believable. He said he had been introduced to Epstein in 1987 by Douglas Leese, a London financier.
At the time, Hoffenberg was building his debt-recovery company Towers International into a billion-dollar Ponzi scheme. He needed help selling phoney securities and Leese, who had employed Epstein to do money-laundering for his clients’ schemes, recommended him for, as Hoffenberg put it, his ‘criminal mindset’.
As Hoffenberg tells it, Epstein quickly became a pivotal actor in the Ponzi scheme and got a share of the $475 million loot.
The problem with Hoffenberg’s story is that Epstein was never implicated in various investigations into Towers International.
He was never mentioned by anyone involved in the swindle, even after Hoffenberg and his associates at Towers International agreed to co-operate with investigators. If Epstein had received part of the money, why hadn’t Hoffenberg disclosed that fact to mitigate his sentence? Did he really expect to get the money back after getting out of prison?
Ghislaine’s father Robert, whose body was found floating off the coast of Tenerife in 1991, is another often-mentioned candidate for bankrolling Epstein.
The media tycoon had stolen hundreds of millions of pounds from his companies’ pension funds, and not all the missing money could be traced.
Soon after his death, Epstein began dating Ghislaine, leading some of his acquaintances to suspect that more than romance was involved in their relationship and that Epstein had hidden some of the stolen funds.
As attractive as this theory may be, no evidence has emerged in the investigations of Maxwell or Epstein to support it.
Finally, it cannot be excluded that Epstein was actually telling the truth when he had said rich and powerful people found reason to consign funds to him.
An extremely savvy financier and philanthropist told me after Epstein’s death about a proposition Epstein had once made him: that he could save more than $40 million in US taxes if he gave him $100 million to manage.
Epstein claimed the money would be concealed in a maze of offshore non-profits he controlled so that part of the profits would be transferred to the financier’s own philanthropic foundation, with the balance retained offshore and out of the reach of the taxman.
When the financier told him that the scheme amounted to illicit tax evasion, Epstein said it was highly unlikely the Internal Revenue Service would unravel it, and, if it did, he would protect the financier from any criminal exposure.
The financier asked him how? Epstein said the financier would have to sign over the funds to him, thus giving him total discretion over where and how the money was invested. This piece of paper, he said, would provide an alibi to the US tax authorities.
The financier turned down Epstein’s proposition, but others – Arab princes, Russian oligarchs and those interested in hiding some part of their wealth – might have accepted it.
Indeed, shortly before his arrest last year, Epstein told an associate that he was going into the business of hiding funds for billionaires who were contemplating divorcing their wives – for a hefty commission, of course.
He also claimed to be in the final stages of buying a property in Morocco, one of four countries in the world not to have an extradition treaty with the US.
So perhaps the mystery of Epstein’s fortune is not how he made his millions, but to whom the money ultimately belongs.
Many very powerful people may have had cause to rue Epstein’s incarceration on sex charges – and, given the fact that they were hiding their assets from the authorities, it’s highly unlikely they will ever publicly come forward to try to recover their investments.
All of which leaves Ghislaine Maxwell as the last living link between a flawed 21st Century Jay Gatsby and the powerful figures who will no doubt be hoping that Epstein’s secrets died with him.

2020.11.04 09:48 RebornInLife Prophecies of Gottfried Von Werdenberg

Prophecies of Gottfried Von Werdenberg
Here is a summary of the prophecies of a modern German mystic, Gottfried Von Werdenberg.
An extraordinary Seeër is living in Austria. All that he has prophesied to date has happened. Very many people bear witness to this fact. He sees himself in a situation whereby he experiences the coming years, the Third World War, the cosmic events, and the first few years of the coming epoch of Genesis. He saw all of it like a film before his eyes.
Among his PROPHECIES COME TRUE SO FAR are:
  • The collapse of the Reichsbruecke (bridge) in Vienna;
  • The nuclear disaster of Harrisburg, U.S.A.;
  • The nuclear catastrophe at Chernobyl, Russia;
  • The dissolution of the Soviet Union;
  • The fall of the Berlin Wall and German reunification;
  • The Middle East War (against Iraq);
  • Civil War in Yugoslavia
THE ENERGY SITUATION
There will not be an energy crisis, political or otherwise, in the near future in Middle and West Europe. However, do not depend on oil or gas. Coal and wood will celebrate a comeback. Before the Third World War begins, Russia will cut supplies of gas and oil to other nations. In addition, there will be a second military conflict in the Saudi Arabian region before WW3 (World War 3). There will not be another Chernobyl disaster before WW3. The energy crisis will come, however, before WW3.
FARMING
Small farm holders should not sell. They will be safe. Today’s policy of “chemical” farming will not last long. Only those living in the country will survive the War. Happy are those who will have a small farm.
ALIENS IN COUNTRIES
Germany, France, Italy but also England has many foreign subjects. Many countries will experience public unrest, a kind of civil war. Shortly before the outbreak of WW3, many people from East Europe and South East Europe will pour into West Europe. Islamic members will grow in strength and confront Christianity.
GERMANY
Germany’s economic power will come to an end. The “economic miracle” will be finished forever. Germany will not recover economically before WW3. She will bleed. She cannot cope with her position as the treasurer for the whole world, the cost of her reunification, and the recession to come. Taxation will become unbearable for her people; the standard of living will fall, and the economy will become desolate.
BOHEMIA
The Czech and Slovak countries will remain stable until WW3. They will not suffer events like those that happened in the former Yugoslavia. However, they will suffer very much during WW3.
YUGOSLAVIA
The civil war will finish before WW3, probably with the help of foreign participation.
POLAND
Poland will suffer a grave, armed conflict in the near future, probably in the South. The reason is not known. It might be connected with the civil unrest in neighbouring nations, e.g. in Germany. Political stability and peace have finally ended.
INFLATION
Inflation will rise in Europe, but there will not be a complete currency collapse. The economic and monetary bankruptcy will come before the civil wars and merge into WW3.
RUSSIA
Russia will remain politically stable, materialistic, and atheistic. People who keep saying that Russia is beginning to be converted, show complete ignorance and a confused mind. Together with other global powers, Russia will remain godless. Even the increasing number of Christians will not change this fact. The real conversion of Russia comes after WW3. Military leaders will take over power in Russia before WW3.
WESTERN EUROPE UNPREPARED
The youth in Western Europe has no interest in joining the armed forces. This will have grave consequences in the coming war. Governments should provide powerful and effective defences, efficient protection against pollution, and a restrictive policy for foreign subjects. US Forces will withdraw completely from Europe, thus making matters easier for the Russians. The chaos will be perfect.
IMMORALITY
The decade of the 90’s belongs also to Satan. The destruction of children and youth by an awful school system, drugs, pornography, sex education, etc. will continue. Immorality is flourishing, family values are ridiculed and bad examples (e.g. pop and film stars) are idolized. Socialism will gain strength again, especially the influence of the extreme left will grow.
CHINA
China is the only exception economically. She will continue to grow. A clever leadership will use the billion people. Their demands are very modest; cheap labour in agriculture and industry combined with modern Western technology provide huge profit for China which she will use to strengthen her armed forces with modern weapons. China will become a superpower and, like Japan, it has a homogenous population which is very beneficial for a nation, unlike the Western nations and Russia where many foreign nationals and ethnic minority groups live.
THE RAIN OF FIRE
There will be a cosmic event most definitely before WW3. It will be a beautiful summer’s day in Austria; no cloud to be seen in the sky. People in the village are excited; they look towards the sun which begins to darken. It is approximately 10 o’clock normal time, not summer time. Whilst the sun is getting darker, dusk is covering earth. It is not the usual solar eclipse but a kind of fog in the universe far outside of our atmosphere. The sky is getting darker. At first there are only a few stars, then more and more appear. One is able to see them at first in the west, then in the north. There are no stars in the east and in the south where the sun was last seen. There is no moon. It is a normal clear sky illuminated by the light of the stars. One is still able to identify the ground, but one cannot read any writings.1 Suddenly the stars disappear. Complete darkness is covering the earth. A few minutes pass; now it is getting brighter. One is able to see the surrounding area. There is no sun. Billions of white dots can be observed in the east. It is like a rain of glowing fire moving from east northeast to west south-west very quickly. It is hitting the ground like a heavy fall of hail. The glow turns from white to yellow, then to glowing red before hitting the ground. They fall in distances of 50 m (165 ft.) to 100 m (330 ft.) apart; they make no noise. When they hit the ground, they look like dust particles or grains of sand. Some are as big as a child’s fist. The villagers do not seek cover; they do not appear to be afraid. The time between the sighting of the particles in the north east and their hitting the ground is a matter of seconds, maximum a minute or so. Once the particles hit the ground, it becomes bright again. A fierce storm begins to blow now from the east and creates fire; it drives before it the fierce fire. The grass is burning; forests are burning; fields are burning; barns, sheds, and farm buildings are on fire; houses and factories are burning, too. The sun will not shine again on this day. 1 Matthew 24:29. 4 The cause of the rain of glowing fire might be a comet, directly or indirectly responsible for it. The seer is unable to tell. The time of year is the summer, probably the first half of August. The year is not given but it could be any year from 1995 onwards.
THE DESTRUCTION OF NEW YORK
The destruction of New York will not be part of World War Three. It will happen beforehand. The seer cannot give the year (God has his own reason). New York is destroyed by the hatred of Islamic-Arab circles. It is probably connected with the US engagement in the second - and a still to come - Middle East war; but in any case it is done in reply to something that the Americans have done to the Arabs. The seer has seen the destruction of New York in all details. It is beautiful early summer weather in Austria. It could be noon. The year is not known. New York will be destroyed by several small nuclear devices; one of them could be a small atomic bomb. The main nuclear device is probably launched from a ship. The missile will fly in a curve and explode behind a large building facing the sea. Buildings will not collapse immediately. The waves created by the nuclear explosion, will shift whole buildings; some may lean a few degrees. However, the result is that they will break up at the base. If one watched the spectacle from the sea, it would seem as if the skyscrapers were walking towards the sea but slowly disappearing into the ground. Manhattan will be flattened completely. New York’s suburbs will not be harmed, only New York’s center will be destroyed. Radio and television in Europe will report the event. Words will not be minced. People will say that what the Americans did to the Arabs was abominable, but to destroy New York is going too far. The destruction of New York will have no consequences for Europe, where no imminent signs of a forthcoming war are visible.

THE PRE–WAR PERIOD
The rain of glowing fire can be considered a warning that World War Three is close. The same applies to the destruction of New York. Even the armed conflict in the Middle East which will take place on Arabian soil and include Saudi Arabia, but does not involve nuclear weapons, is a sign of a major war to come. The USA will invade Saudi Arabia’s oil area, but will be defeated. Prior to WW3 there will be war in Africa, from the north to the south. The fate of South Africa is not known, but people are warned not to emigrate to South Africa. Only the west of the African continent will survive relatively unscathed. Before WW3, power in Europe is held by the radical left. Bolshevism and Communism celebrate a renaissance. Christendom and Church suffer persecution by leaders of the extreme left, especially in Italy and France. 5 The multi-national society will show its multi-national crimes. Attacks, theft, murder, drugs, rape will be daily occurrences. There will be civil war in France, Italy, and England. Germany will suffer a similar situation, also countries in northern Europe. Bohemia (the Czech and Slovak nations) will remain stable. The energy crisis will reach its peak before WW3. Shortly before the outbreak of WW3, millions of people from the east and south east of Europe will flood West European nations. The chaos in Europe begins approximately at the same time, or shortly after, the American forces have completed the greater part of their withdrawal from Europe. One cannot rely on the USA during WW3, only on the Chinese. Immorality, the absence of love for one’s neighbour, and a refusal to serve in the armed forces will reign supreme. War in West Europe is the punishment for it all. Russia will be ruled again by an authoritarian red regime. They will reassure the West of their “peaceful co-existence”, and many West Europeans will be blinded by it.
There will be no war in Central Europe (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) until… 1998. Most likely it will be 1999. (Author’s note. This is 1999 in the AMD Calendar, Anno Mori Domini.. Counting from the Death of Jesus which was at 33 so that puts us at 2032-2033)
First it will be Austria’s turn, then Germany’s, then Switzerland’s; this is certain. The military conflict will be finished at the turn of the century. Cosmic events, like the fall of comets, and earthquakes may last a little longer.
The military conflict will last approximately 2 years; somewhat less in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The Russians will first occupy Austria for her strategic importance. There will be very little resistance by the Austrians. The U.S.A. will not intervene. The Russians will steal what they can so as to keep their troops fed. Any resistance will be useless. When the civil war in Italy reaches its peak, Russia will invade it.
Approximately at the time of the Russian occupation of Austria, civil war will rage at its worst in Italy and France ruled over by godless extreme left-wing governments. The clergy is being persecuted. There will be mass murder and violent plunder.
The social outcasts, the mob, are a danger for all countries which share borders with France and Italy. These murdering and plundering hordes show no mercy. They will also destroy Rome, and Paris, set alight by the mob, will burn like a torch. In any event due to the war, large cities and towns will be destroyed more or less. SURVIVAL IS ONLY POSSIBLE IN THE COUNTRY AND IN SMALL VILLAGES.
The first nuclear weapon will be used in Europe in the Mediterranean. Many nuclear bombs will be exploded high in the sky above the Adriatic Sea, from the North to the South. The consequences are, of course, major flooding in that area. Shock waves can be felt in Austria and Germany.
The nuclear attacks by the Russians in the Adriatic Sea and later in the North Sea, are meant solely for the destruction of enemy ships operating there. There will also be a war in the Balkan countries, from Albania to Bulgaria to Turkey. However, the Russians will lose the battles.
China will help Europe, indirectly and with great reluctance. Chinese troops will fight the Russians in Central Europe. On their way to Europe, the Chinese will conquer South Russia, and their many, small tanks will be superior to the Russian tanks. The Russian troops will be defeated.
https://preview.redd.it/yexh9s8es6x51.png?width=590&format=png&auto=webp&s=e209f4a512ec9494c5a2004a6d60739794b17d75
The European population is suspicious, but they do not hate the Chinese; they hate the Russians.
At first, the Chinese and Russians will fight each other with conventional weapons in Lower Austria and in the Czech Republic, north of the Danube. The front will be broken three times. Many, many people will die as a result of the tank battles which will destroy the whole area. No stone will be left unturned in Lower Austria and in the Czech Republic.
A similar fate will be experienced by other nations worldwide. The U.S.A. and Canada will be devastated.
As the war progresses, Russian troops will invade Western Europe. The latter has no real resistance to offer against the Russian. The total defeat of Germany by the Russians is avoided only with the aid of Germany’s space vehicle. It is able to remain suspended in space, and is equipped with a revolutionary engine, electromagnetic gun and a machine that can fire lightning bolts. This space vehicle is superior to what the Russians have, and can destroy even the most modern missiles.
By now, half of Europe and half the world is a heap of rubble. Now the Americans decide to help Europe. Gigantic battles will take place with the most horrific weapons systems. At least one nuclear battle will take place in the North Sea. All countries bordering the North Sea, will be affected.

https://preview.redd.it/0wfo3c0gs6x51.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=949c4e74a0fda5b53203c2ffa0794f7c4fb6a6a0
Gigantic waves will flood England, Belgium, Holland, North Germany, and Denmark. The sea waves, caused by a Russian nuclear explosion in the North Sea, are more than 75 m (250 feet) high. They spread quickly and grow even more. Their power is fierce, and they do not only destroy London but also large parts of Southern England.
Back to Central Europe. The Czech Republic is a neutral nation. Nevertheless, Russia will occupy her, and the nuclear battles will destroy the whole nation. Hell reigns in the western part of the Czech Republic. Nuclear and neutron bombs are used by the Russians and the Chinese in their first encounter. The second battle is even worse. The Chinese are trying to encircle the Russian forces, which are trying to escape to the north.
The vibration of the multiple nuclear explosions can be felt everywhere in Central Europe. Whole mountain ranges are removed and flattened, in order to defeat the enemy. One cannot describe the satanic brutality of the war.
A sulphur-yellow glowing fire rises above the West of the Czech Republic; it is perhaps the result of the exploded neutron bombs. Then follows a short, powerful, white-yellow explosion which throws fire high in the sky. The fleeing Russians may have detonated their nuclear weapons stored in the Czech coal mines. This is the last explosion in the Czech Republic, for now the crust of the earth splits open.
The first eruption high into the sky shows the Crucified Lord, animated, with His Wounds. The world will shout: “There is a God!” Our Lord remains suspended in the sky, then slowly He takes on the form of a birch-tree (this has a special meaning, as a prophecy was made in Germany centuries ago in connection with a birch-tree).
Now tons of lava, stones, and debris are ejected into the air covering areas more than 100 km (63 miles) away from the centre. The city of Prague will be covered completely by it, and nobody will be able to say in the future where Prague once stood.
Immediately after the earth crust splits open, the most gigantic earthquake in human history will shake the whole planet a whole day. Nothing will remain standing on earth, but God will preserve some homes.
Immense quantities of poisonous gas are freed. It will rise into the atmosphere and biosphere and create three, and more, days of darkness. The air is poisoned for days, but winds will drive the poisonous clouds to the East.
However, the war is not yet over, although one is fighting now with moderate means. The Russians are now on the run. European countries form a new army made up of volunteers. The Russians are hated for this holocaust which they started. Discipline and moral are gone in the Russian forces. They are wiped out completely. Not one Russian will see his homeland again.

https://preview.redd.it/p06xbgiygkz51.png?width=662&format=png&auto=webp&s=88e790070fd6ee574355c2005d8df5f6344c4b2a
Russia collapses. The Communist leaders are being killed, and their historic guilt is now washed in the blood of millions of innocent dead people.
Survivors worldwide have nothing left. Of six billion people on earth, approximately 600 million will be chosen to survive. This is more than enough for our devastated planet.
THE SITUATION AFTER THE WAR
After the war, there will be no hatred between nations. Old historic borders will be established again (peacefully), so as to form homogenous nations. The multi-national society is finished. Germany will have an Emperor. She will be given back all German-speaking countries and German lands in the north, south, east, and west. Even Austria and Switzerland will voluntarily belong to the new German Empire. Poland will return parts of Poland to Germany but will be given back her land in the east from Russia. The Chinese will be given part of Siberia, and Italy - after a battle which she will lose - must return South Tyrol to Austria. All religious sects will be united in a cleansed and renewed Christendom; it will unite all nations in peace but without merging them and their cultures. The Church will no longer be a worldwide powerful institution. Christendom, in its purest form, will enter the hearts of the survivors, and will not be used as an excuse for oppression and exploitation. Due to cosmic events ― a collision between earth and another space body ― the North and South Pole will move to a new position. The earth will not be stable for some time to come, because of minor earthquakes. From the book “Vision 2004 — Die nächsten 10 Jahre.” It was published in the German language 1995 by Mediatrix Verlag, Gloriette 5, A-3423 St. Andrae-Woerdern, Austria.
