Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Magnetic Shifting Of Our N And S Poles, Tsunamis, Tectonic Plate Shifting, Weather Anomalies HAVE Been Occurring, More And More, With A Frequency As We Have Never Seen Before

Taken Dec 13-2012, in Asheville N.C.; the other bright orb to the left of the sun could not be seen with the human eye, although it showed up with the filter from the camera lens.  There was not a single cloud in the sky.  Credit:

Dec 21 2012 has come and gone, and our solar-system line-up with the center of our galaxy has evidently come and gone as well...  and we are still here.  Does this mean that none of the other occurrences have been real either? 

We have scientific evidence of what NASA referred to as "Planet X" during the 80s, (at least that’s when NASA actually admitted the facts of Planet X/Nibiru, whatever you want to call it approaching us) and some insiders have leaked that it is indeed heading toward our sun in a possible sling orbit that, if so, will cause many anomalies on our sun as well as all the planets in our solar system:  Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Magnetic shifting of our N and S poles, Tsunamis, Tectonic plate shifting, Weather anomalies; so many different effects...

These anomalies HAVE been occurring, more and more, with a frequency as we have never seen before; at least since mankind has been recording our history.

Planet X, or whatever name you prefer to call it, is still on the same path that it has always been on, and Volcanoes are active and activating at an alarming rate, as well as earthquakes; worldwide.

Sudden bird die offs, wild land animal die offs, and aquatic mammals and fish die offs are continuing to occur worldwide, at alarming rates.

Never mind the continued, and worsening leaking of radiation from Fukushima as a result of a terrible earthquake and tsunami, and evidenced organ damages and cancers being caused by GMO foods.

These things are true, and have not “come and gone…”  The Mayan calendar end was something that so many people were depending on to be the “unknown” date of all the big occurrences to suddenly come upon us.  No-one knows (at least time-line disclosures are not being leaked) when things will come to a peak, but Earth’s instability IS occurring, and magnetic and weather anomalies ARE occurring. 

I think that our hopes were set on Dec 21 2012, because whether some want to accept it or not, the whole world has gone crazy, and life here, as it is now, is rapidly becoming unbearable.  We ALL know, whether we want to admit it or not, that something very grave, and ominous is coming our way that will change our lives as we know them now.  More and more people, worldwide, are turning away from mainstream news companies to view real, everyday people’s reports of what is really happening worldwide.  I believe many were hoping to be miraculously saved from having to bare any more…

The sad reality is that nothing has changed… yet… and we still have to deal with all the unbearable changes, while being immersed in political upheaval, wars, rumors of more wars, and our freedoms being literally raped away from us.  There is no easy way out of the inevitable, unless of course you are one of the upper 1% of the wealthy and powerful of this world...

Perhaps it’s time for us to stop “waiting” for something to happen, to change things, and start acting to MAKE changes occur that will better our world and our lives.  Those who we hope to wake up perhaps will not wake up till it’s too late, so we need to stop hoping “something” will happen, or “someone” will save us.  Being in the sidelines will no longer help; it’s time to be an activist, in any way you see fit, but do stand up for your rights, no matter what it takes.  Even if it is just to be prepared to survive a situation you may not be used to.  Super storm Sandy has shown us that FEMA has failed at being able to truly help, as well as the Red Cross.  You may find yourself in a situation where there is no-one to be able to come to rescue you.  You can no longer ignore the inevitable…

Watch this newscast from Nov 2012...  "Comet Network??!!!..." 

There is no human being more dangerous than the complacent person in the midst of political mayhem…

Iran Warns Turkey Against Deploying Patriots

The chief of staff of Iran's armed forces says Turkey's deployment of Patriot missiles will "create a world war".

The chief of staff of Iran's armed forces warned Turkey on Saturday over its plans to deploy U.S.-made Patriot missiles, saying the move was part of a Western plot to "create a world war".

"The Patriot (missiles) are threatening. Each one of them is a black dot on the map, (setting the stage) to create a world war," General Hassan Firouzabadi was quoted by the ISNA news agency as having said.

"The Western countries seeking to deploy the missile batteries on the Turkey-Syria border are devising plans for a world war,” he claimed.

"This is very dangerous for everyone, and even for the future of Europe," said Firouzabadi. "A veteran military man and analyst can easily see this and predict the future."

Earlier this month, NATO agreed to deploy Patriot missiles along the border of Turkey as requested by Ankara to help it defend its territory against threats from Syria.

AFP reported that Germany, the Netherlands and the United States have agreed to provide the missile batteries, which would come under NATO command.

But both Russia and Iran, the most powerful allies of the Assad regime, are opposed to the move.

In August, General Firouzabadi drew the ire of Ankara after he predicted the turmoil in Syria would spill into Turkey whose government he accused of aiding the U.S. in achieving "belligerent objectives."

Turkey formally asked its NATO partners to deploy the U.S.-made anti-missile system after a series of cross-border shellings, including one that left five civilians dead on October 3.

Syria has said that Turkey’s plans to deploy Patriot missiles along its border are "a new act of provocation.”

CERN's God Particle Test Date Coincides with 'Doomsday'

New Delhi: Scientists working on the God Particle (the Higgs Boson) are hopeful that particles that are more new might show up at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, which might lead to discovery of ‘supersymmetry’ and dark matter.

The discovery has the potential to change the way we look at things and experience them. Once complete, the CERN can challenge the fundamental principles of particle physics.

It can provide us answers to many unexplained phenomenon and events that take place around us. It can also reveal a totally different perspective to the way we see the world!

Many have believed that the experiments conducted in the large Hadron Collider have the potential to trigger the end of the world.

After conducting successful experiments, CERN is gearing up for its next stage of project scheduled to take place from 17 December 2012 to 21 December 2012.

Yes, 21 December 2012!

The last date of the Mayan calendar. The Doomsday, as predicted by many theologians.

Is it a mere coincidence or human's working together to fulfill the Mayan prophecy?

Only time would tell.


US Air Force Sends Mystery Mini-Shuttle Back to Space

A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket, carrying an X-37B experimental robotic space plane, lifts off from launch complex 41 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012, in Cape Canaveral, Fla. Air Force officials said the unmanned space plane, which resembles a miniature space shuttle, provides a way to test technologies in space.(AP Photo/John Raoux)
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -- The military's small, top-secret version of the space shuttle rocketed into orbit Tuesday for a repeat mystery mission, two years after making the first flight of its kind.

The Air Force launched the unmanned spacecraft Tuesday hidden on top of an Atlas V rocket. As if on cue, clouds quickly swallowed up the rocket as it disappeared out over the ocean.

It is the second flight for this original X-37B spaceplane. The craft circled the planet for seven months in 2010. A second X-37B spacecraft spent more than a year in orbit.

These high-tech mystery machines - 29 feet long - are about one-quarter the size of NASA's old space shuttles and can land automatically on a runway. The two previous touchdowns occurred in Southern California; this one might end on NASA's three-mile-long runway once reserved for the space agency's shuttles.

The military isn't saying much if anything about this new secret mission known as OTV-3, or Orbital Test Vehicle, flight No. 3. In fact, launch commentary ended 17 minutes into the flight and a news blackout followed.

But one scientific observer, Jonathan McDowell of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, speculates the spaceplane is carrying sensors designed for spying and likely is serving as a testbed for future satellites. He dismisses rumors of "exotic ideas" for the X-37B as weaponry or shadowing a Chinese satellite.

While acknowledging he does not know what the spaceplane is carrying, McDowell said on-board sensors could be capable of imaging or intercepting transmissions of electronic emissions from terrorist training sites in Afghanistan or other hot spots. "All the sorts of things that spy satellites generally do," he said.

The beauty of a reusable spaceplane is that it can be launched on short notice based on need, McDowell said.

What's important about this flight is that it is the first reflight.

"That is pretty cool," McDowell said, "reusing your spacecraft after a runway landing. That's something that has only really been done with the shuttle."

Now retired museum pieces, NASA's space shuttles stretch 122 feet long, and have 78-foot wingspans and weights of more than 170,000 pounds. They were launched, from 1981 to 2011, with two strap-on booster rockets and an external fuel tank feeding three main engines. The X-37B wingspan is 15 feet, and the 11,000-pound, Boeing-built vessel requires the United Launch Alliance's hefty Atlas V for hoisting. It is solar powered.

The two previous secret X-37B flights were in 200-plus-mile-high orbits, circling at roughly 40-degree angles to the equator, as calculated by amateur satellite trackers. That means the craft flew over the swatch between 40 degrees or so north latitude and 40 degrees or so south latitude.

That puts Russia's far north out of the spaceplane's observing realm, McDowell noted.

"It might be studying Middle Eastern latitudes or it might just be being used for sensor tests over the United States," he said.

McDowell speculates that this newest flight will follow suit.

The International Space Station, by comparison, orbits about 250 miles high but at a much steeper 51.6-degree inclination, or angle to the equator, that covers more territory.

The X-37B program, which dates back to 1999, is operated by the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office and geared toward space experimentation.

Some scientists - like Laura Grego of the Union of Concerned Scientists - argue the Air Force could accomplish the same objectives by using cheaper, more efficient spacecraft that either burn up on entry or parachute down.

"The ability to return to Earth carries a high price," Grego said in a statement.

NKorea Defies Warnings, Launches Long-Range Rocket

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- North Korea successfully fired a long-range rocket on Wednesday, defying international warnings as the regime of Kim Jong Un took a giant step forward in its quest to develop the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead.

The United States, South Korea and Japan quickly condemned the morning launch, which came as something of a surprise after Pyongyang had indicated technical problems might delay it. That it succeeded after several failed attempts was an even greater surprise.

The regime's stated purpose for firing its long-range Unha-3 rocket was to put a peaceful satellite into orbit, but the United Nations, as well as the U.S. and its allies see it as cover for a test of technology for missiles.

About two hours after the launch, North Korea's state media proclaimed it a success, prompting customers in the coffee shop at Pyongyang's Koryo Hotel to break into applause during a special television broadcast. The North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, later confirmed that North Korea did appear to have put an object into space.

Wednesday's launch is likely to bring fresh sanctions on the North, and the White House called it a "highly provocative act that threatens regional security."

NORAD said the rocket traveled south with the first stage falling into the Yellow Sea and a second stage falling into the Philippine Sea hundreds of kilometers (miles) farther south. "Initial indications are that the missile deployed an object that appeared to achieve orbit," NORAD said in a statement.

Japan protested the launch and said one part of the rocket landed west of the Korean Peninsula, and the Philippines said another part landed 300 kilometers (186 miles) east of its shores. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak held an emergency national security council meeting Wednesday, and South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan warned that North Korea will face grave consequences.

Japan's Foreign Ministry said Tokyo immediately requested consultations on the launch within the U.N. Security Council. The council will hold closed-door consultations on the launch Wednesday at the request of one council member and two other countries, according to the U.N. Mission for Morocco, which holds the rotating council presidency.

A similar North Korean launch in April broke apart shortly after liftoff.

"Clearly this is much more successful than their last attempt," said Jonathan McDowell of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. "It's at least as good as they've ever done. They've proved the basic design of it."

He said success would be defined as "something that completes at least one orbit of the Earth."

Rocket tests are seen as crucial to advancing North Korea's nuclear weapons ambitions. North Korea is thought to have only a handful of rudimentary nuclear bombs. But Pyongyang is not yet believed capable of building warheads small enough to mount on a missile that could threaten the United States.

North Korea has spent decades trying to perfect a multistage, long-range rocket. Experts say that ballistic missiles and rockets in satellite launches share similar bodies, engines and other technology. This is the fifth attempt at a long-range launch since 1998, when Pyongyang sent a rocket hurtling over Japan. Previous launches of three-stage rockets weren't considered successful.

North Korea under new leader Kim has pledged to bolster its nuclear arsenal unless Washington scraps what Pyongyang calls a hostile policy.

Kim took power after his father Kim Jong Il died on Dec. 17 last year, and the launch is seen by some as an attempt to commemorate that. It also comes less than a week before presidential elections in South Korea and about a month before President Barack Obama is inaugurated for his second term.

The launches Wednesday and in April came from a site on the west coast, in the village of Tongchang-ri, about 56 kilometers (35 miles) from the Chinese border city of Dandong, across the Yalu River from North Korea. The site is 70 kilometers (45 miles) from the North's main Yongbyon nuclear complex, and is said to have better roads and facilities than previous sites and to allow a southerly flight path meant to keep the rocket from flying over other countries.

Tensions are high between the rival Koreas. The Korean Peninsula remains technically at war, as the 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, and Washington stations nearly 30,000 troops in South Korea as a buttress against any North Korean aggression. Tens of thousands more are in nearby Japan.

This year is the centennial of the birth of national founder Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of Kim Jong Un. According to North Korean propaganda, 2012 is meant to put the North on a path toward a "strong, prosperous and great nation."

The launch also follows South Korea's recent cancellation, because of technical problems, of an attempt to launch its first satellite from its own territory. Two previous attempts in 2009 and 2010 failed.

The U.N. Security Council has imposed two rounds of sanctions on North Korea following its nuclear tests, and a 2009 resolution orders the North not to conduct any launch using ballistic missile technology.

The council condemned the failed North Korean launch in April and ordered seizure of assets of three North Korean state companies linked to financing, exporting and procuring weapons and missile technology.

Under Security Council resolutions, nations are also barred from buying or selling weapons with North Korea, a key source of revenue for its authoritarian government.

North Korea has capable short- and medium-range missiles, but long-range launches in 1998, 2006, 2009 and in April of this year ended in failure. North Korea is believed to have enough weaponized plutonium for at least half a dozen bombs, according to U.S. experts. In 2010 it revealed a uranium enrichment program that could provide a second source of material for nuclear weapons.

Six-nation negotiations on dismantling North Korea's nuclear program in exchange for aid fell apart in early 2009.

A February deal for the United States to provide 240,000 metric tons of food aid in exchange for a freeze in nuclear and missile activities collapsed after the North's April launch.

Tibetan Monks Alarming Statement For The 21st of December 2012

Lama of the monastery under Gyandrek Kailas, known as the Oracle of Shambhala told how to survive the apocalypse, which he said will last two weeks.

If you believe the predictions of the Maya, before the apocalypse less than two months. And although scientists, as they should be, are loath to believe in the absurd predictions, astrologers and soothsayers are seriously discussing what will be the designated end of the world.

So, Tibetan lamas do not hide the fact that the risk of a serious accident is quite large: in late December, the Solar system planets line up in a row, which is a unique case. In his message to NASA lama monastery Gyandrek under Kailas, known as the Oracle of Shambhala, said that on December 21 2012, the Earth, along with the solar system passes through the galactic “zero band”.

“Fall and winter will be warm, and from 12/21/2012 Earth will begin to pass through the galactic” zero band. “This is a special state space where the blanked and not be subject to any energy. Was complete darkness and silence. The electricity and communications. Darkness will be accompanied by flashes of light, as well as the play of light and shadow. Sometimes it may seem that roam figures – as if the dead rose from their graves. earth will shake slightly – like a small earthquake. Some buildings can be destroyed “- warned Lama.

“Animals feel the earth before the coming of the” cosmic dark “and go to ground – said the monk. – People in cities do not feel so are the victims of insanity. Can be lost 10% of the population. “

Oracle Shambhala painted and practical recommendations for humans:

1. You need to prepare for this change of cycles to complete all the works in 2012, not to tie new, pay off debts.

2. 20.12.2012 to take their children, all documents, cash and get out of town into the countryside. Prepare a supply of food for two months, as supply will be restored for a long time.

3. It is necessary to have in the house supply of water, firewood and candles for lighting. You need to have the stove in the house, as the electricity stops flowing from 21.12.2012 on the wire.

4. Communications and TV are turned off. During the “dark days” hang windows dark, not to look at them, do not believe your eyes and ears, not to go out. If you see the need to go, you can not go far – you can get lost, as you’ll even his own hands.

5. After the appearance of the world is not in a hurry to return to the city, it is better to live in the nature of spring.
Disasters according to Tibetan lamas will last two weeks, though the echoes will be felt for some months until the beginning of February. The total yield of the Earth from the “zero band”, expected in about February 7, 2013. There will be a partial restoration of electricity, transport. By late March, the world will recover completely.

End of the world will radically change the outlook of people, according to Oracle Shambhala. It will become more spiritual. In developed and developing countries will blossom variety of scientific and spiritual teachings, systems development and health of the individual. “This will be the most important impetus to the progress of mankind for a long time,” – concludes the monk.

Meanwhile, scientists continue to claim that the fears of the apocalypse are unfounded. “New evidence suggests that the ancient Maya did apocalyptic prophecies” – quoted by words of the director of the Research Institute of Central America Marcello Canuto.

Many researchers Maya agree that their civilization, if it existed today, most likely, would have invented a new calendar. Archaeologists have found evidence of even deep in the rain forest texts in which the ancient Maya mentioned dates later than December 21, 2012.

NATO Intervention in Syria Imminent

Anthony Freda Art
On December 7, Voice of Russia (VoR) headlined: "Iraq 2.0, another false-flag invasion rated XXX," saying:
    The US and NATO are set to invade Syria, something many of us have been warning about for a while now. It has been obvious that they have been looking for a pretext and that pretext has already been injected into the public debate.
VoR cited fabricated claims about threatening chemical weapons. Media scoundrels hype them. Sarin nerve gas was mentioned.

Reports claimed Assad readied it in bombs. No evidence whatever was cited.

They're ready to go but haven't been loaded on planes, said an unnamed US official. Pentagon spokesman George Little said "any consideration of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime would be unacceptable."

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said:

I think there is no question that we remain very concerned, very concerned that as the opposition advances, in particular on Damascus, that the regime might very well consider the use of chemical weapons. The intelligence that we have causes serious concerns that this is being considered.
The president of the United States has made very clear there will be consequences, there will be consequences if the Assad regime makes a terrible mistake by using these chemical weapons on their own people.

On December 7, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad was unequivocal, saying:
Syria stresses again, for the 10th, the 100th time, that if we had such weapons, they would not be used against our people. We would not commit suicide.
The alleged Syrian chemical weapons threat replicates bogus allegations about Saddam's nonexistent WMDs. It's similar to falsified claims about Gaddafi, the Taliban, and numerous other invented US enemies.

Big Lies launch wars. In The Art of War, Sun Tzu said "All war is based on deception." It's true now like in ancient times. Instant global communications, super-weapons, and scoundrel media complicity make today's threat especially ominous.

Washington's rage for war threatens humanity. Peace doesn't have a chance. Media scoundrels hype false threats. Repeated ad nauseam, people believe them.

No matter how many previous times they were fooled, they buy the Big Lie again. It happens every time. They're being set up again now.

Administration, congressional, and Pentagon officials are preparing the public for more war. Falsified headlines hype nonexistent threats. Humanity hangs in the balance. Where this ends, who knows.

In early December, UN officials said they're recalling all non-essential Syrian staff. Growing conflict dangers were cited. Perhaps advance word of imminent NATO intervention was gotten.

On December 6, CNN cited a Pentagon spokesman Little saying Washington updated its military options for potentially striking Syria. "We are prepared for a full range of contingencies," said Little.

He added that US forces have all the firepower needed in the region for full-scale war if ordered. A previous article said Washington positioned considerable military strength off Syria's coast.

It includes 10,000 combat troops, 70 fighter-bombers, 17 or more warships (including the USS Eisenhower and Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group), heavy armaments, offensive Patriot missiles, Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System readiness, and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) capability.

It suggests US-led NATO intervention could happen any time. More than ever it looks imminent.

On December 7, Syria Deeply headlined "EXCLUSIVE: US Trains Rebel Brigades to Secure Chemical Weapons," saying that Washington and NATO allies "hired contractors" to train opposition Syrian mercenaries. Four unnamed diplomats, including a US official, said exercises are ongoing in Turkey and Jordan.

At issue is whether Washington plans a false flag chemical attack as pretext for full-scale US-led NATO intervention. Syria Deeply stopped short of suggesting it.

Obama and Clinton said using them crosses a "red line." Washington would respond.

On December 7, Hillary Clinton urged all parties involved to make a "concerted push" to resolve the Syrian conflict. Perhaps imminent intervention was hinted.

France's Le Figero said French military advisers met with opposition fighters inside Syria. So have US and UK elements. At issue is assessing operational capabilities of different groups and choosing which ones get weapons.

On December 4, NATO foreign ministers met in Brussels. They expressed solidarity with Turkey. They agreed to deter any potential threat Ankara faces. There's none, but they suggested otherwise.

On December 6, Germany's Suddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) headlined:

"Nato-Führung erwägt militärische Intervention in Syrien (NATO leadership is considering military intervention in Syria)."

Multiple sources told SZ that NATO Secretary-General Fogh Rasmussen said the alliance can't "stick its head in the sand." NATO is prepared to intervene in Syria if ordered.

Earlier Rasmussen said NATO had no intention of doing so. He lied. Perhaps it's been planned all along.

SZ said Rasmussen is supported by Washington, Britain and Turkey. The Pentagon will suggest ways to implement a no-fly zone.

Rasmussen asked what would NATO do if Syria uses chemical weapons? What if Iran blocks the Strait of Hormuz? Germany, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Poland discount a chemical weapons threat.

Russia told NATO members to take inflammatory threats with a grain of salt. Previous ones proved false. This time isn't different.

SZ said NATO foreign ministers failed to reach common ground. It's unlikely to matter. Washington, Britain, Turkey, Rasmussen, and apparently France favor intervention. No combination of other countries can stop them.

On December 7, Mossad-connected DEBKAfile headlined "Paris: NATO-Arab Syria intervention imminent," saying:

Sources close to the French Defense Ministry (said intervention) is due to begin shortly with the participation of the US, France, Britain, Turkey, Jordan and other anti-Assad Arab nations.
France deployed the aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle in the Mediterranean. Combat marines are on board. Britain has at least five warships nearby. They've joined Washington's battle group.

In November, British and French forces "performed landing-and-capture exercises against fortified locations on the coast and mountains of Albania as practice for potential operations against similar terrain in Syria, where the Alawite Mountains loom over the coastal towns of Latakia and Tartus."

French sources told Le Point magazine that the NATO mission for Syria, including the UK and the US, would be modeled on the Western intervention in Libya in 2011.
It would combine an aerial blitz with ground action by special forces for destroying Assad’s chemical weapons stocks, his air force and his air defense systems.
Apparently winds of war have reached gale force. Expect full-scale intervention any time. It could come before or right after Christmas and New Year's.

A previous article called today perhaps the most perilous time in world history. Daily events should scare everyone.

Possible regional or global war looms. Disastrous consequences could follow. Obama may head humanity into the abyss. Perhaps there's no way to stop him.

It's vital for anti-war activists to challenge what's too potentially catastrophic to tolerate. The risks are far too great to stay sidelined.


3,000 US Troops Secretly Return to Iraq

Over 3,000 US troops have secretly returned to Iraq via Kuwait for missions pertaining to the recent developments in Syria and northern Iraq, Press TV reports.

According to our correspondent, the US troops have secretly entered Iraq in multiple stages and are mostly stationed at Balad military garrison in Salahuddin province and al-Asad air base in al-Anbar province.

Reports say the troops include US Army officers and almost 17,000 more are set to secretly return to Iraq via the same route.

All US troops left Iraq by the end of 2011, after nine years of occupation, as required by a 2008 bilateral security agreement between the two countries. The troops left Iraq for the neighboring Kuwait.

Washington decided to pull out all its troops from Iraq after Baghdad refused to grant legal immunity to the remaining US soldiers.

Washington claims that the only US military presence left in Iraq now is 157 soldiers responsible for training at the US Embassy, as well as a small contingent of marines protecting the diplomatic mission.

US-led forces attacked Iraq in 2003 and toppled Saddam Hussein on the pretext of possessing weapons of mass destruction. But no WMD was ever discovered in Iraq. At the peak of the US-led military operation in Iraq, there were 170,000 US troops and more than 500 bases in Iraq.

More than one million Iraqis were killed as the result of the US-led invasion and subsequent occupation of the country, according to the California-based investigative organization Project Censored.

‘US may Build New Atomic Bombs’

The recent US subcritical nuclear test can be a camouflage for developing a more sophisticated stockpile of nuclear weapons, a political analyst tells Press TV.

In a Saturday interview, author and political scientist Kaveh Afrasiabi noted that the subcritical test, known as Pollux, involves underground high-explosives experiments on plutonium

He argued that although the test does not reach the critical mass and nuclear chain reaction, “You don’t have any international inspectors to verify the fact that there are no low-yield nuclear explosives involved.”

“This could be a cover for computer simulations for advancing new nuclear warheads. We don’t know that because the US program is shrouded in high secrecy,” the analyst pointed out.

On Wednesday, the US - the only country that has ever used atomic bombs against other countries - conducted a subcritical nuclear test in Nevada in a declared aim of providing “crucial information to maintain the safety and effectiveness of the nation's nuclear weapons.”

Afrasiabi pointed to the recent written requests by the heads of US nuclear laboratories to President Barack Obama to earmark more funds for conducting tests for new warheads and noted that Obama approved the plans despite Washington’s official announcements that it is not rebuilding any new warheads.

“There is a huge gap between the rhetoric and the actual policies when it comes to the US’ nuclear weapons policies,” he said.

“What needs to be done is for the international community to exert pressure on the US, as well as other members of the nuclear weapons club, to desist from such activities that pose a proliferation risk and the risk of a new nuclear arms race,” Afrasiabi pointed out. 


DOD Drafting Plans To Strike Supposed Syrian Chemical Weapons As NATO Strike Appears “Imminent”

Chemical weapons propaganda mirrors lead up to Iraq Invasion.

By Alex Thomas

According to multiple reports, the Department of Defense is currently drafting plans for a full fledge preemptive strike on targets within Syria.

In a post published on CNN’s Security Clearance Blog, Barbara Starr (who many believe is herself nothing more than a CIA operative within the corporate media) wrote that DOD officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, had revealed to her that they are currently drafting plans for a potential strike on chemical weapon sites in Syria.

“The U.S. military has updated its plans for a potential strike against Syria after intelligence showed that the regime has filled aerial bombs with deadly sarin gas in at least two locations near military airfields, a senior U.S. official said Friday.

A senior U.S. official confirmed the details but declined to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information. There has been no movement to put the bombs on aircraft and no significant additional movement of chemical materials as far as the U.S. knows, he said.”

Meanwhile, other reports have also surfaced that seem to confirm that a NATO lead attack on Syria is indeed imminent and that the firepower to do so is already in place.
In early December, UN officials said they’re recalling all non-essential Syrian staff. Growing conflict dangers were cited. Perhaps advance word of imminent NATO intervention was gotten.
On December 6, CNN cited a Pentagon spokesman Little saying Washington updated its military options for potentially striking Syria. “We are prepared for a full range of contingencies,” said Little.
He added that US forces have all the firepower needed in the region for full-scale war if ordered. A previous article said Washington positioned considerable military strength off Syria’s coast.
It includes 10,000 combat troops, 70 fighter-bombers, 17 or more warships (including the USS Eisenhower and Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group), heavy armaments, offensive Patriot missiles, Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System readiness, and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) capability.
It suggests US-led NATO intervention could happen any time. More than ever it looks imminent.
In the blog post cited above, Barbara (intelligence operative extraordinaire) Starr also confirmed that the firepower is ready to go.
The official also said the U.S. has all the firepower it needs in the region to conduct military action against Syria if Obama orders it. The U.S. maintains a fighter and bomber aircraft presence across the Middle East, including on board aircraft carriers. There are also warships with satellite-guided Tomahawk cruise missiles that can be programmed to hit specific targets.
Initial Chemical Weapons Claims

The initial claims that the Syrian government was mixing their supposed stockpile of chemical weapons actually originated from an NBC report that heavily cited anonymous officials.

As if right on que, the national security correspondents on both Fox News and CNN went to work stressing the dangers now facing the world and again quoted unnamed operatives who could either be lying to the corporate media journalists or actually be giving them their orders in the first place.

Now, the United Kingdom has joined the “chorus” of concerns over Syrian chemical weapons.
In a statement at a regional security conference, British Foreign Secretary William Hague picked up on the ludicrous narrative that Assad would use weapons against the Syrian rebels when in reality these rebels are actual al Qaeda terrorists.
“We are extremely concerned,” Hague told reporters on the sidelines of a regional security conference Saturday.
He noted several “dangerous scenarios” for the use of chemical weapons. One would be terror groups obtaining such munitions.
Falling into the hands of terrorists?

We truly are in a Orwellian nightmare especially when you consider that the groups being funded by the UK and the US through NATO are the actual terrorists and now, with the threat of weapons falling into the hands of terrorists, a military strike is  being planned.

The fact that the claims that Assad is stockpiling and mixing chemical weapons with plans to use them in the very near future hasn’t even been debated within the mainstream media just goes to show how controlled the war propaganda within the media has become.

For their part, Syrian officials have wholeheartedly rejected all reports that have claimed they plan to use chemical weapons at any time.

Syrian Depurty Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad made this clear in a statement on December 7.
“Syria stresses again, for the 10th, the 100th time, that if we had such weapons, they would not be used against our people. We would not commit suicide.”
Many legitimate researchers and independent journalists have also noted that the initial chemical weapons claims are in themselves absolutely ludicrous and that if anyone within Syria were to use them it would most likely be the al Qaeda CIA linked and run Syrian Rebels.

In a report published on Prison Planet, Saman Mohammadi noted that from the very beginning the Syrian rebels have been Jihadist CIA run terrorists and that the corporate media is literally reporting the opposite of reality.

“After funding and arming the Jihadist insurgency in Syria, which has engaged in brutal executions of civilians and other war crimes, Washington is now finally ready to go to the next step in its long-planned aggressive war on Syria. The Obama administration is ludicrously hyping the non-existent chemical weapons threat to isolate the Syrian regime from the international community and justify a NATO ground and air assault against Syria.”

As noted above, the corporate media has gone from exaggerating and slightly altering the truth to outright lying for the military industrial complex.

“What’s really interesting is the complete rejection of reality and basic truths by Washington’s occult elite and the dinosaur media.

They have abandoned the realm of facts, logic, and scientific evidence. Instead, they have fully embraced magic. Their policies towards the Middle East are based on messianic fanaticism and irrational hubris.”

These chemical weapons claims may very well be nothing more than well fabricated nonsense made up by the global power structure through the art of fiction.
USrael pretends reality doesn’t even exist. Its high-minded officials have transcended history. They govern with the arts of fiction. Truth is so passe. Whenever they want to attack a country they make up lies about its leaders, spread panic in the international media, and then pose as the saviours of the world.
Syria War Propaganda Equals Iraq War Propaganda

Eerily, the claims coming out of Syria seem to mirror the lead up to the Iraq War, complete with possibly false intelligence, corporate media war hype, and the possible return of the Bush Doctrine.

A shockingly accurate and telling video report was recently published that showed the direct connections between the now ongoing Syrian war propaganda and the Iraq War propaganda ten years ago, complete with a startlingly spot on description

“How can you tell when a country is about to get invaded? Listen to the sellout traitor talking heads on television tell you the country has “weapons of mass destruction” or “chemical weapons” and is “about to use them on their own people”..

The Gullible American public fell for it once, the media and government assume it will work again, only will it? ”

The Obama Administration has outlined two scenarios that they claim would cause them to intervene militarily in Syria which are if Assad decides to use the weapons on his own people (which seems highly unlikely to happen) and if the weapons have a chance of falling into the hands of “Islamic” terrorists. (Such as the ones that have been supported and funded within Syria?)

A report published on Anti-War noted that Obama is set to use the Bush Doctrine in a preemptive attack on Syria.

“Three international relations scholars, Paul R. Williams, J. Trevor Ulbrick, and Jonathan Worboys, explain in Foreign Policy how “the Obama administration risks resurrecting the much-maligned Bush Doctrine of preemptive self-defense.
Under international law, a state may only invoke its right of self-defense in the case of an actual or imminent attack.
After the 9/11 attacks by al Qaeda, however, the Bush administration asserted a right of preemptive self-defense against terrorist groups and states that harbor them or could supply them with weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
Many states and experts rejected this justification for the 2003 Iraq war because Iraq could not be linked to WMDs or the 9/11 attacks.
Unlike Iraq, Syria has CBW and has forged a close partnership with Hezbollah. Nevertheless, preemptive self-defense still suffers from the same theoretical deficiencies it did in 2003. The doctrine has a weak basis in international law and its legal recognition would improperly justify the use of force by powerful states.
“The situation with Syria right now isn’t exactly identical, but it’s notable that the Obama administration’s calculations for intervention rest on the same, almost universally reviled war criminal logic as the Bush administration.”

Possible Looming False Flag

With the news that Assad is supposedly getting ready to use chemical weapons, many in the alternative media have speculated that a false flag chemical weapon attack may be on the horizon to further justify what surely would be a war crime filled attack on Syria.

In a new report on his Land Destroyer Blog, independent researcher and geopolitical analyst Tony Cartalucci wrote about a video recently released on YouTube that seems to show Syrian rebels testing out chemical weapons.

“The video (see here) starts with several scenes showing chemical containers with Tekkim labels (Tekkim is a Turkish chemicals company) and some lab equipment, while playing Jihadists chants in the background.

A glass box then appears with two rabbits inside, with a poster on the wall behind it reading The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar). A person wearing a lab mask then mixes chemicals in a beaker in the glass box, and we see some gas emitting from the beaker.

About a minute later, the rabbits start to have random convulsions and then die. The person says: You saw what happened? This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites, I swear by ALLAH to make you die like these rabbits, one minute only after you inhale the gas.”

An editors note from Tony provides even more important analysis.
Now would be a good time to recall US’ informant, codename “Curveball” – the man who provided the US with baseless “intelligence” regarding Iraq’s chemical weapons capabilities which were gladly used as a false pretense for a war that has left millions dead, mutilated, displaced, poisoned, or otherwise affected. 
If chemical weapons are deployed in Syria, it will be by NATO-backed terrorists who acquired them from looted Libyan stockpiles, or apparently, perhaps Turkish supplied chemical precursors. While the White House cites baseless, nameless “officials,” here we see a video -  not conclusive evidence, but by far more compelling.
Although the validity of the video has been thrown into question, the idea that the US-Israeli-NATO axis would stage a false flag attack to gain support for their new war is far from unrealistic.

We have seen false flags by government against the people throughout history, with the 9/11 attacks being the most recent large-scale staged attack.

The advent of the internet and rise of the alternative media has made it extremely difficult for the global power structure to use the corporate media to easily sell a war as was done so many times in the past.

A false flag just might be the main course on the menu as a planned strike on Syria could happen at any time.

Weapons of Mass Destruction (Chemical weapons) AGAIN?!!!! This time in Syria...

The President has intelligence that Syrians have nerve gas chemicals (WMD) inside their bombs...

It is true, or is this the same as when another President had intelligence that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?  How do we really know; we have been outright lied to, time and time again through our mainstream media that I, for one, do not know whether this is honest, or another cooked up reason to get us to back our generals in support to go to war in Syria this time.

The mainstream news "reports" are saying that this is true, and Obama has threatened Syria that chemical warfare WILL have consequences.  Is his intelligence straight, or is he being 'LED TO BELIEVE' this through his sources, just like our past President was.

There were NO Weapons of Mass Destruction found in Iraq AT ALL, and our past Presidential administration knew this all along!  Our soldiers were sent to fight for the Upper 1%, NOT our freedom.
This is like the boy who cried "wolf:" which cry of "wolf" do we believe, if any...?

Rescued Stray Dogs in New Zealand Learn to Drive

IN a world already full of road hogs this is perhaps the last thing you want to see in the rear view mirror. Animal experts are teaching dogs how to drive.

Astonishingly, it took three mutts just eight weeks to master the basics in wooden carts. They then graduated to a modified Mini in which they sat on their haunches in the driver's seat with their paws on the steering wheel.

Their feet go on extension levers which are attached to the accelerator and the brake while their paw rests on the gearstick.

The experiment was set up by an animal welfare group in New Zealand which wanted to show the public how intelligent dogs are.

The dogs and their skills will be put to the test in a live broadcast next Monday. Picture: SPCA Source: Supplied
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will put Porter, a ten-month old beardie cross, Monty, an 18-month-old schnauzer cross, and Ginny, a one-year-old beardie whippet cross to the test in a live broadcast next Monday.

Mark Vette, who is schooling the dogs, said: ‘"We train them to do different actions, touch is the first thing and then we teach them to touch the different objects with the right paw and left paw. They've all come through at this point and they're all going really well".

All of the dogs involved had been rescued by the SPCA. The organization hopes the public will be so impressed that they will adopt them and others like them.

SPCA Auckland chief executive Christine Kalin said: "I think sometimes people think because they're getting an animal that's been abandoned that somehow it's a second-class animal.

"This really shows with the right environment just how much potential all dogs from the SPCA have as family pets."

Thousands of US Troops Arrive Near Syrian Shore on USS Eisenhower

(Reuters / Paul Hanna)
The USS Eisenhower, an American aircraft carrier that holds eight fighter bomber squadrons and 8,000 men, arrived at the Syrian coast yesterday in the midst of a heavy storm, indicating US preparation for a potential ground intervention.

While the Obama administration has not announced any sort of American-led military intervention in the war-torn country, the US is now ready to launch such action “within days” if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad decides to use chemical weapons against the opposition, the Times reports.

Some have suggested that the Assad regime may use chemical weapons against the opposition fighters in the coming days or weeks.

The arrival of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, one of the 11 US Navy aircraft carriers that has the capacity to hold thousands of men, is now stationed at the coast of Syria, DEBKAfile reports. The aircraft carrier joined the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group, which holds about 2,500 Marines.

“We have (US) special operations forces at the right posture, they don’t have to be sent,” an unnamed US official told The Australian, which suggested that US military troops are already near Syria and ready to intervene in the conflict, if necessary.

If the US decides to intervene militarily in Syria, it now has at its disposal 10,000 fighting men, 17 warships, 70 fighter-bombers, 10 destroyers and frigates and a guided military cruises. Some of the vessels are also equipped with Aegis missile interceptors to shoot down any missiles Syria might have at hand, according to DEBKAfile.

“The muscle is already there to be flexed,” a US official told the London Times about the US military’s presence outside of Syria. “It’s premature to say what could happen if a decision is made to intervene. That hasn’t taken shape, we’ve not reached that kind of decision. There are a lot of options, but it [military action] could be launched rapidly, within days.”

The move comes after NATO made a significant strategic decision Tuesday to deploy Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems in Turkey on the border of Syria where opposition groups have the stronghold. The defense would be able to protect Turkey from potential Syrian missiles that could contain chemical weapons, as well as intimidate Syrian Air Force pilots from bombing the northern Syria border towns, which the armed rebels control. Syria is thought to have about 700 missiles.

“The protection from NATO will be three dimensional; one is the short-range Patriots, the second is the middle-range Terminal High Altitude Air Defense [THAD] system and the last is the AEGIS system, which counters missiles that can reach outside the atmosphere,” Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said.

DEBKAfile’s anonymous military sources claim the THAD and Aegis arrived at the Syrian coast aboard the USS Eisenhower.

“The United States now stands ready for direct military intervention in the Syrian conflict when the weather permits,” the news source wrote.


Government Issues Statement Debunking End of the World: “Just Rumors”

Mac Slavo
December 4th, 2012

With the purported 2012 Mayan Apocalypse calculated to take place on December 21st rapidly approaching, thousands of letters have poured into government agencies like NASA from citizens concerned about the end of the world.

Doomsday fears surrounding the end of the Mayan calendar, a possible collision with a mystery “Planet X” theorized by some researchers, and pole shift popularized in the Hollywood movie 2012, have forced the government to issue a rebuttal debunking the claims at their web site:
Scary Rumors about the World Ending in 2012 Are Just Rumors
False rumors about the end of the world in 2012 have been commonplace on the Internet for some time. Many of these rumors involve the Mayan calendar ending in 2012 (it won’t), a comet causing catastrophic effects (definitely not), a hidden planet sneaking up and colliding with us(no and no), and many others.
The world will not end on December 21, 2012, or any day in 2012.
Unfortunately, these rumors have many people frightened, especially children. NASA has received thousands of letters concerned about the end of the world. David Morrison, a planetary astronomer and senior scientist for NASA who answers questions from the public about astrobiology, says, “At least a once a week I get a message from a young person ― as young as 11 ― who says they are ill and/or contemplating suicide because of the coming doomsday.”
According to NASA, the old mystery-planet-collision rumor year was 2003, but when 2004 arrived safely, the rumors changed to 2012.
So what end-of-the-world year will the rumor mill make up next?
NASA scientists have set up a dedicated questions and answers page to quell panic surrounding a variety of theories and rumors that include:
  • End of the World
  • ‘Prediction’ Origins
  • Mayan Calendar
  • Total Blackout
  • Planetary Alignment
  • Nibiru/Planet X/Eris
  • Polar Shift
  • Meteor Strike
  • Solar Storms
NASA and the government have taken extraordinary steps to assuage the feelings of fear surrounding potentially life-ending “global killer” events.

Widespread blackouts resulting from solar storms, for example, are of particular concern among many individuals researching potentially devastating scenarios. A detailed 2010 report from the Center for Security Policy found that a wide-spread national level blackout for extended periods of time would leave some 90% of Americans dead within one year should it come to pass. In this case, the public’s fears stemmed from numerous reports warning of powerful solar storms that may hit earth in late 2012 through 2014 during the Sun’s peak solar cycle, as well as from an agency-wide preparedness alert issued by NASA head Charles Bolden which warned employees to think about and prepare for attacks “from outside forces.”

Though NASA claims their organization is not predicting such a blackout and that there is nothing to be concerned about regarding the peak of the sun’s solar cycle over the next couple years, they are actively building a solar shield to protect against massive flares from the sun and have created detailed preparedness plans in the event such a scenario unfolds, leaving many wondering what is actually being discussed behind closed doors.

Moreover, further confusion and distrust stems from NASA’s claims of the impossibility of events such as pole shifts and meteor strikes.

Though pole shifts have clearly occurred in the past, as evidenced by this NASA report, and are likely in progress right now, the NASA debunking page claims, “as far as we know, such a magnetic reversal doesn’t cause any harm to life on Earth – scientists believe a magnetic reversal is very unlikely to happen in the next few millennia.”

Likewise, NASA says they have ”determined that there are no threatening asteroids as large as the one that killed the dinosaurs,” in Earth’s vicinity, yet they and the US government are actively preparing for ex-planetary threats such as asteroids.

The government has gone to great lengths to let us know that there are no potential threats on the horizon, but they have invested tens of of billions of dollar into preparedness strategies that include bunkers, food supplies and continuity of government contingencies just in case.

While we are hard-pressed to believe the world will end on December 21, 2012, or even in 2013, nothing is outside of the realm of possibility. Obviously, the government has determined that utilizing billions of dollars at the taxpayer’s expense to build backup plans is a worthwhile investment, which suggests that officials at the top of the homeland security food chain are more paranoid then anyone else.

Curiously, though they are not necessarily traditional end-of-the-world Armageddon scenarios, there is very little discussion and much denial about the possibility of an economic collapse, an elite takeover of the global population through centralized governance, implementation of martial law, and the potential for World War III to go hot, yet the government seems to be fully involved in planning for such activities as well.

Perhaps those who take it upon themselves to research these far-from-equilibrium possibilities are a bit paranoid.

However, with government transparency being as opaque as it’s ever been, the people have been left with no choice but to be suspicious of official stories and paranoid about their government’s activities.


Mainstream Media is, sadly, still the Media that MOST people watch.  They have abandoned the stories on Hurricane Sandy's victims, and as a result, the majority of the people in the US, as well as the world, have no idea how bad the victims’ lives are there still.

It’s the news coverage that prompts people to take action to help. 

FEMA has also abandoned these victims, and they have been left to fend for themselves; without power, water, and good sources of food, as well as shelter and warmth.  FEMA has begun evicting the few survivors out of their large, inhumane, but heated tents; just as winter is settling in.  Meanwhile, FEMA has at least 100 empty warming trailers sitting idle in Connecticut, and hundreds of trucks with thousands of pounds of water and food sitting; waiting for the NEXT storm!

The Mainstream News Media spoke of how terrible this tragedy ‘was,’ but the real tragedy is now, and how these people are being ignored by the News, and especially by FEMA.  What have they done?  Have they just written them off, like a car that has been in an accident???!  This is a HUGE city, and there are literally countless people that are freezing, hungry and thirsty, with no-where to turn for help.

The US Building A Secret $100 Million Underground Facility Outside Tel Aviv, Called: Site 911

Construction project planned for Israel is called Site 911.

The oddly named project will cost up to $100 million, take more than two years to complete, and can only be built by workers from specific countries with proper security clearances. Palestinians need not apply.

When complete the well-guarded compound will have five levels buried underground and six additional outbuildings on the above grounds, within the perimeter. At about 127,000 square feet, the first three floors will house classrooms, an auditorium, and a laboratory — all wedged behind shock resistant doors — with radiation protection and massive security.

Only one gate will allow workers entrance and exit during the project and that will be guarded by only Israelis.

The bottom two floors are smaller, according to the full line of schematics uploaded to the Army's Acquisition Business Web Site, and possibly used for equipment and storage.

As impressive as the American design features already are, Ada Karmi-Melamede Architects will decorate the entire site with rocks it chooses, but are paid for by the contractor, and provide three outdoor picnic tables.

Pincus also found this detailed description of the mezuzahs that will adorn every door in the facility:

These mezuzas, notes the [US Army] Corps, “shall be written in inerasable ink, on . . . uncoated leather parchment” and be handwritten by a scribe “holding a written authorization according to Jewish law.” The writing may be “Ashkenazik or Sepharadik” but “not a mixture” and “must be uniform.”

Also, “The Mezuzahs shall be proof-read by a computer at an authorized institution for Mezuzah inspection, as well as manually proof-read for the form of the letters by a proof-reader authorized by the Chief Rabbinate.” The mezuza shall be supplied with an aluminum housing with holes so it can be connected to the door frame or opening. Finally, “All Mezuzahs for the facility shall be affixed by the Base’s Rabbi or his appointed representative and not by the contractor staff.”

Along with this request is another called 911 Phase 2.

Also in the $100 million range, Pincus finds the “complex facility with site development challenges” requiring services that include “electrical, communication, mechanical/ HVAC [heating, ventilation, air conditioning] and plumbing” requirements telling; and along with the fact that the contractor must posses a U.S. or Israeli Secret Security Clearance, he believes this phase to be a secure command center.

Pulitzer Prize winning, Yale grad, born in 1932 whose worked intelligence and media in D.C. since 1955 closes his piece with these shadowy words.

"The purpose of Site 911 is [un] clear."


...just a ponder.... Is this to be the 3rd temple of Jerusalem???
