Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas


OK, a new post....

Thanks, again, to Spirit Across the Sea, AKA Belgium, for his guest post on the Guidestones, and all the conversations that were inspired.

Now, the Christmas and Hanukkah season is upon us. The season for “Peace on Earth and goodwill to men.” Well, not exactly, is it? Earlier this week I found myself wrapping Christmas presents with music in the background. But, instead of Christmas carols, I was listening to the sound track of “Pulp Fiction.” oh, dear. It is just like that this year.

What amazes me during this most “Holy” of Christian holidays is how silent the churches are on the revelations of torture and abuse by the CIA of military prisoners. Anybody hearing of any uproars regarding the shoving pureed lunch up a Muslim prisoner's rectum, raping children in front of parents, crushing testicles, freezing to death, beatings, “stress positions,” medical experimentation, “ etc. by the Baptists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, or any of the truck stop variety “non-denominational” organized churches proliferating everywhere?

No, I didn't think so. The Christ Consciousness teachings of forgiveness, peace, love, and compassion are kicked to the curb in favor of focusing on the book of Revelations and its predictions of the Apocalypse. Although I do go to his site regularly to pick up interesting stories about giants and pre-history and fringe stuff, I do think Steve Quale is a prime example of an End Times Bible-thumper who ignores the teachings of Jesus while devoting himself to whomever the nut-case was who wrote the Book of Revelations. Check this out:

Of course, this isn't the first time that our supposedly moral society has ignored our hypocrisy of pretending to be a Christian nation and a believer in Freedom and Democracy, while engaging in bogus wars for global dominance and natural resources. Revisit the Panama invasion in the late 80's.

Now we seem to be gearing up for war again - this time with Russia.

Are you kidding me? Is this not the most insane thing yet? We can't even win a war against people wearing flip-flops and driving Ford Rangers, and we are going to go up against RUSSIA???

Oh, WAIT. No, even more ridiculous is this situation with North Korea. We wonder why Kim Jong Un is pissed that SONY made a COMEDY about killing him. What if Korea has made a comedy about assassinating one of the Western heads of state? Would that be considered an act of free expression or an act of terrorism? And, then there is the outrage over him hacking into SONY and leaking massive confidential files. Of course, the NSA is capable of doing this on a much more massive scale, but, hey, it's different when we do it. Who knows who we are blackmailing or coercing into going along with whatever the lie of the day is? All I know is that this super-surveillance capability that the NSA has now has not put a dent in the pedophile rings, drug trafficking, or banking malfeasance. So, what are they doing?

The world does not seem to be a safer place. Personally, I feel violated if I can be viewed or listened to by my refrigerator, phone, or television set. What will it do to our children who will grow up with no sense of privacy? The Borg comes to mind.

Meanwhile, another long anticipated financial collapse seems to be structured into our future with the passing of the budget bill in Congress.

Happily for the Too Big to Fail banks, we the taxpayers will be liable for their criminal financial contrivances once again.

All this political pandemonium has a backdrop of geo-physical activity that has the potential to dwarf our other problems. Just take a look at the long list of volcanic and earthquake activity, radiation from Fukushima, methane releases, giant sink holes all over the world, animal die-off, and severe snow and rainfalls. It looks as if the Earth is fighting back. Can't blame Her.

Stress is taking its toll on people. Amazingly, people actually got off their collective butts and went to the streets to protest police brutality. Now, though, two cops were apparently gunned down as a “retaliation” against police bullying tactics. I imagine that the PTB would rather have us fighting amongst ourselves rather than focusing on their injustice. So, we'll see where this goes. More and more people seem to be flipping out and killing their families as well as the homeless and assorted innocent strangers.

On a happier note, I look to the heavens. Is Planet X responsible for the dramatic Earth changes and also the ones on-going on Saturn, Uranus, and Jupiter?

It is probably what it would take to dislodge the plans for the global New World Order that seems to be in store for us. There's no telling, however, just how many of us would be around to enjoy the level playing field that would once again be established after the financial and political entities are destroyed. Maybe there are some beautiful things in our future. Personally, I take an odd comfort in the glimpses of things like this, a UFO sited in Austria.

I think it is beautiful.

Despite everything, I hope this holiday is a good one for you. Good food, good friends, loving families, and some hope for the world.

First :) I see John at Survival Acres is putting up some new post again lately. This one regarding increasing Methane levels looks to be pretty grave:

Will it become the most dire threat facing humanity, we shall see.

Happy Holidays Trout Clan :) HSW

Oh good, I am not a Robot after all ;)

Have you read his Sept 13th post titled "The McPherson Message"?

Most of what he has posted since then I've missed I guess and had to catch up on what he had to say. I sort of neglected to keep checking in on his site for new stuff.

Anonymous said...

Happy Hollidays eveyone!

re lack of noise from the churches, what should we expect from the spiritual gatekeepers of the NWO?

HSW: don't fret matey, all that Methane doom is based on Dr. Wadhams "predictions" which are purposefully alarmist to provide his talking head income, even Gavin Schmidt calls it bunkem. Wadhams current prediction is an ice free Arctic by 2015, except ice extent has been increasing since he made the prediction! (lets not mention the Antarctic eh ;) )

Read this Nature piece for the full Methane Sp, here's the conclusion.... "Catastrophic, widespread dissociation of methane gas hydrates will not be triggered by continued climate warming at contemporary rates (0.2ÂșC per decade; IPCC 2007) over timescales of a few hundred years. Most of Earth's gas hydrates occur at low saturations and in sediments at such great depths below the seafloor or onshore permafrost that they will barely be affected by warming over even 10^3 yr." (that's 1000 yrs)

Got a horrid dose of dreaded Lugey here, even my teeth are aching :(


rockpicker said...

Sat by the fire and drummed last night. Happy solstice, everyone.

Revelations reads like an indigenous myth, to me. Colored horses, circles of elders. All open to interpretation.

Had a brief conversation about Max Keiser with a fellow the other day. He argued that Max was too "radical." Felt my temp climbing. In the spirit of the season, I had to just walk away.

Have to concur with GD on climate change. Cold records are vastly outstripping warm records for the year. And who knows how much warming is being done by the injection of stratospheric aerosols? (DoD coined the word "chemtrails" by titling a USAF training manual Chemtrails in 1990. It's real. And it's a crime.

What exactly is Lugey? Pneumonia? Hangover?

Small quake at the north end of Vancouver Island. Maybe the Cascadia fault is letting off some pressure. It's been stuck, you know, and that ain't good...

Happy holidays everyone. Eyes open. Good cheer.

Oh, Freeacre, Ben Davidson visited with Thor yesterday.

For some reason that first picture at the top above your post Freeacre does not show anything, at least not for me. I am wondering what it is? I see the one below it of an earth with two little Xmas trees :) Murph I did read John's earlier posted thinking about Guy's NTE concept. John does not agree with what he sees as a " giving up " type of message from Guy and Carolyn Baker, but I think those two, G and C would describe their message as meaning something different than what John feels it is. I am waiting to see if the Actic ice cap does actually melt off for any duration during the summer in the next few years. Satellite images from the early 70's show its diminishment clearly in a few minute time lapse vid. RP, I really enjoy all the episodes of Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert, I find them very informative, and fun to watch :) Well I took my daughters up to the mountains today and they had fun sliding down a snow slope up there, under crystal clear blue skies, near Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino National Forest. I was watching them while sitting in the sun, breathing in the pine scented fresh cool air :) The doom seems so far away in times like that :)

fa... been missin yer way w/words. thx. nice christmas present.

doubling back to the last entry where i found sats succient assessment of the mussings presented by an "average limited manifestation of an unlimited consciousness trying to find his way in this world" (or to put it another way, in search of the great "I AM")... i was somewhere in the middle of his assessment of that kuhn guy when me knee jerked and hit me square in the 3rd eye with this:

OMG!!! maybe he's multitasking here by playing devil's advocate to the duality devil while exposing kuhn for what he is?

mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa folx. the expletive just slipped out unbridled! can't explain it here n e better'n i can explain it jes slippin out during sex! since its NEVER jes come out as OM MFG, maybe its proof positive there is no negative. jes another vyin for position in god's place. somethin to think about in a world gone mad over pissin contests...

and, if i may be so heretical as to add a subtitle to his latest entry on replacing putin... a star appears in the east and new wise men come riding in from over the hill.

just in time for christmas too!

my mantra to all of us gathered in the warmth of this camp fire... be provocative in spirit. this may be the last op for a moment of peace on earth for a long time to come... p

btw rp... does quale know about ken's latest prognistication? revelations revealed! or so it would be said...

I hope this coming year will be a happy one for our tribe. I'm switching back to my no sugar, no grain dietary regimen, but that's not what my resolutions will be. I am resolving to have more fun this year. I would like to go on a train trip, even if it is a small one. I am going to take a hula class at the Grange. I am going to paint more. The Wachowski siblings are coming out with a new movie - always exciting. I want to visit my granddaughter in Nevada this year.
What are your goals for 2015?

Hi fa, train is my favourite form of travel, you just sit back in a comfy stool and watch the world go by at a level where you can see what is going on. You can see more of what a country is really like by train than from a car, everything from beautiful landscapes and the moods of nature to scrapper cars in someones back garden. Even at night time the good stuff does not stop, you can pretend to look out of the window and oggle the reflection of the gorgeous specimine of the opposite sex on the other side of the aisle. Just kidding but it is something we have all experienced at some time or another, usually by chance.

My hopes for the coming year are to do more travel and to try my hand at some new craft hobbies, probably something involving wood. I would like to get a couple of power tools then spend the money on travel. Getting tools is not the problem it's finding somewhere to put them once you have them. Sometimes you don't really need stuff, just having it is important. I know, I shouldn't be talking like this about feeding the beast but restraint can be so frustrating. I would really like to get a garage for the car and set up a work bench at the back but such things are thin on the ground around here.

I really hope you achieve all the things you have set your hopes on.

Oddly enough the whoile Christmas thing has come back to it's beginnings. The early Wicans had a holy day they called "YuleTide" which means "Longest Night".

On this day they would cat an evergreen tree, and bring it inside the place where the feast would be held. There they would feast in the face of famine, and exchange gifts as a sign of unity, strength of community, and good will toward one's neighbors. (the very essence of what is required to survive the winter), and to revele in the promise of Spring which was on it's way, as after the longest night, the days began to lengthen.

It was after Christianity came to Europe, that the old religious holy days were given Ghristian names, and reasons.

Yuletide became Christmas, Eastora's Feast Day became Easter, and the symbols of fertility that were holy to her, (The egg, and the rabbit), were incorporated, and the Coca Cola Santa Clause became the symbol and Saint of Christmas.

Of cource now that the corporate establishment has pretty much taken over the Holidays of all sorts, we find they have become nothing more than marketing ploys.

Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny only come if Mommy and Daddy run out and spend what they can afford to bring them in.

God has become a guilt trip to keep the faithful pouring money into obcene structures so far romved from their true purpose, I can't help but think back to the words of The Dali Lama when asked his opinion of Ghristianity: "I like your Christ, but not your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ"

All I can say to that is "Amen"! That and this, Hang a serpent on the cross and you get this: "$". What more needs to be said!

stoney13 said...

Oh yea! I'm under 250 pounds for the first time in a long time! Still off cigarettes, although I sometimes enjoy a good cigar, (Yea, yea! I know!)

All in all the COPD hasn't got me yet, I can still cut firewood, load it on my firewood hauler, which I scrapped together out of old lawn tractor parts, and bring it home.

I still work a forty hour week, and Obamacare hasn't euthenized me yet, (in spite of what The Right Wing says)!

stoney13 said...

I got to get a new picture for my avatr! LOL!

stoney13 said...

Then again, I kinda like the old SKS! there! Even though the ATF says I can't have the bayonet installed. Funy thing is, if you have a Russian model with the broad bayonet, you can't take it off!

If we could only find somebody who will stand up for the poor people if this country, without selling out to the Nanny Staters, and Gun Grabbers I would actually get poiltically active again!

Don't look like that's going to happen though!

Here are a few more odd things associated with Christmas and New year.
In olden times folks knew about noon but they had no idea about midnight because they could not see it, so common belief was that the day ended when it became dark. Consequently that was also when the new day started. That is the reason Christmas eve and New Years eve are the night before those events and not the night afterwards. It is kinda interesting why some traditions linger on even after the true nature of events are discovered.
Yule tide is as said but something started in the Scandi countries and then exported elsewhere is the Yule Log. This originally was a great tree stripped of its branches and moved to the communal gathering hall. Over the twelve days of 'Christmas' it was burned from the fat end first and gradually moved into the fire as it burned away. Depending on the size of the tree it was sometimes allowed to smoulder overnight. The final part of the stem was was not allowed to burn out but was stored and used to start the burning of the new Yule Log the following year, a bit like the olympic torch. This was another community and warmth tradition of the early times.

Wassailing is enjoying a New Year eve drink made in a traditional way. Some rich folks drank it throughout the whole 12 days. Originally, the wassail was made of mulled ale, curdled cream, roasted apples (more over these later), eggs, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and sugar. The Wassail drink mixture was sometimes called 'Lamb's Wool', because of the pulp of the roasted apples looked all frothy and a bit like Lambs Wool. One legend about how Wassailing was created, says that a beautiful Saxon maiden named Rowena presented Prince Vortigen with a bowl of wine while toasting him with the words 'waes hael'. This means good health, literally 'be whole'. Here is a song associated with Wassailing.

Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wassailing,
So fair to be seen:
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too,
And God bless you and send you,
A happy New Year,
And God send you,
A happy new year.
For those ambitious enough of you, here is a recipe.
4 pints of Dry Cider
A bare 1/2oz root of Ginger
6 Cloves
A blade of Mace
1/2 small Nutmeg, grated,
or 1 level teaspoon grated Nutmeg
1/2 level teaspoon ground Corriander seeds or 4 seeds
1/2 level teaspoon Cardamom seed or 4 seeds
8oz granulated Sugar
2 lemons
1/2pt Water
2 Egg yolks
Demerara Sugar
6 small cooking Apples
Bruise the ginger with a hammer, then put it into a large pan with the cloves, grated nutmeg, mace, coriander, cardamom and sugar. Finely grate the rinds of the lemons and add this to the spices with the water. Bring these ingredients to the boil and simmer them for five minutes. Squeeze the lemons, add the juice to the spices with the cider, and heat the mixture slowly. Put the egg yolks into a bowl and gradually beat in half a pint of the hot, but not boiling, liquid-this should make a good froth.
When the rest is almost at boiling point whisk it an into the basin.
Meanwhile core the apples and put them in a roasting tin, fill the centres with demerara sugar and bake them in a moderately hot oven about 190C / 375F / Gas Mark 5 for approximately twenty minutes. Put them into the Wassail.
Drink and enjoy!!!
This sounds pretty potent to me. I must admit I have never tasted it but I am going to make one to try.
Now back to the apples. A spin off tradition is performed at harvest time, largely in the English county of Somerset, where the cider apples grow. Many pubs there have a cider apple tree outside the pub. At the appropriate time of year, the locals gather under the tree, sing songs and read poems to the tree's beauty. They wish it many more years of bountiful fruit and then fire shotguns in the air to ward off evil spirits that could affect the trees fruitfulness. After that they go inside the pub and get drunk. Who says traditions have no meaning. :-) In truth, it is another excuse fot the English to act daft whilst pretending to do something meaningful.

Now I'm starting to feel better about the Season. Thanks, guys.

I don't think there is anyone we can rally around to protect the poor or the working class. I wish there was a "Bad Serf" Party. I'd join.

All kinds of terrible cold going on with drenching downpours, mudslides, and earthquakes. Yikes! Have your lanterns, etc. handy. The tipi is starting to mold, it's been so wet. Gotta get a good fire going inside tomorrow.

Not necessarily fa, it could be the Holy Ghost, there is a precedent. :)

Re Charlie Hebdo, I think satire went out with David Frost and TW3. It is not the sort of publication I would find at all interesting. It has however touched a nerve with with those who find that what they regard with reverence has been the subject of cheap shots. JFK once said that the trouble with fundamentalists is not that they are fundimental it is that they are always so intollerant. That they have over reacted is not the point. The real point is that those who control international affairs are engenering conflict and so dividing and ruling. The hope is that those who follow world events will take their eye off the ball by fighting amongst themselves. But some are still watching the overall play.

rockpicker said...

Good point, SATS. I haven't followed this too closely, but I heard Rense say it appeared the gunmen were too casual, as if maybe they knew how much time they had to do the job and escape.

And the shooters are known terrorists, with ties to training camps in Yemen? What are they doing wandering around Paris?

My guess is they won't be caught. They're probably back safe in barracks by now...

Almost recovered from the dreaded Lurgy at last, bloody floored us for a couple of weeks!

Given the French support for Palestine, it looks more like a Mossad false flag op playing into the NWO.

Cui Bono - QED.

Viewing the two videos released on live leak with a skeptic eye is demonstrative, it shows the rooftop vid is edited, you see the chap in the blue shirt wearing body armour(why?) in two different places in quick sucession, an imposibility without editing/cutting, not to mention the disapearing cops x3; watching the one filmed from the window in slow motion, showing the cop shot in the head with an AK at 2ft range, shows no blood at all, also the sound of the two AKs is different, one is firing blanks IMO.

Given the immediate trumping of the desired narrative by the MSM, finding a suspects (read patsy) ID in the car (LOL at them trying this AGAIN!) odds are this is another flase flag op. Gd.

Today was quite a day in the continuing story of Charlie Hebdo. Five hostages dead and all Kidnappers killed so it can all be boxed off without a show trail. Before both of the sieges ended there was reportedly a call to a Paris newspaper claiming responsibility to Al Qaeda, Yemen, so that is who it was. Yes, I did give a wry smile that one of the Arab gangsters left the regulation passport behind. They do seem to have a trait of being too gung-ho to be security minded. Mossad are what the police refer to as “The usual suspects” but suspects that are never accused of anything. Was it significant or just pure chance that it was a Jewish supermarket that was chosen for the Paris showdown. The Jewish quarter in Antwerp requested extra police security today, that was comforting.

I watched the link Gd refered to. I found some of it difficult to follow, it was a screen within a screen within a screen so the image was quite small but I accept the reporters version and that he had a better image than that shown in his report. But again it was a situation posing more questions than answers. Who were the people on the roof wearing flak jackets and who was the cameraman. How long had they been there? I once knew an ex SAS trooper who took part in the Iranian embasy siege and he told me they had been up there for about five hours before the press turned up. If the security forces had been up there for any length of time, why had no one allerted the journalists? Where they bait in the trap?

All that has been achieved by the whole thing is an easier security lockdown for the rest of society, in our own interests, of course.

Sometimes immersing yourself in diversion seems the only protection against the never ending cluster-fuck of world events and don't be afraid of embracing it, at least for a while. I have done the same.

I don't know anything about Greer's book but I do know one little known fact. I know the Masons big secret, the one you have to get to thirty or so degrees to find out. Curious? - they are repressed Druids, sun worshippers. The sun symbol appears predominantly on their regalia, hidden in plain sight. At the time of the purges they separated from the main branch of the religion, went underground and passed themselves off as a guild. Interesting huh.

One final take on Charlie before I leave it. I don't know whether it was a false flag or not. The people on the roof before the event and the speed with which everyone in the street, hundreds and hundreds of them, were carrying “We are Charlie” placards suggests to me that they were printed in advance and the dog was being wagged. Even crowds in Australia had the same signs a day later. Don't tell me they were computer printed and passed around. The sign is predominantly black with white letters. Half a dozen of these would run a normal printer cartridge out. They were pre-printed to be ready for the event. Whether, this was so, or whether people who have been pushed and pushed until their backs were against the wall have decided the only way left to go is forward, is not the point. It was, in proportion, a very small event directed against a shitty hate magazine in the demonisation of the subjected culture by the dominant culture. How many innocents die in the Middle East each day at the hands of Western influence. How many are seen on Western TV holding banners proclaiming “We are Libya” or “We are Syria” etc.? The most likely scenario IMV, is that those who took part in the event were wound up until their spring would not take another click and then pointed in the desired direction.

For an alternative to the mainstream view on Charlie:

One thing you will get to know about me is that I lie a lot. Well only sometimes. I did when I just said “One final take on Charlie before I leave it”. This just up from Redefining God:

Here are some quotes.

> Why would the globalist intelligence agencies stage false-flag attacks that are so sloppy that any regular jagoff with an internet connection (like me) can see the inconsistencies?
> Why would alt-media disinformation sites that are known to be globalist mouthpieces be pointing out all the inconsistencies to the public and openly labeling them false-flag attacks?
Cui bono? (Who benefits?)
As I noted in the excerpt above, these are the benefits the globalists accrue from such practices…
1) These blown false-flags help to wake the people up. Dramatic events like this get lots of attention, and as people eventually catch on to the inconsistencies between “the official story” and what actually happened, they start looking for answers. As I’ve written before, the current awakening was engineered by the globalists to facilitate the transition to the NWO. They can’t run a dialectic on the population until the public is awakened to the two sides (the “evil” West and the “good” East).
2) These events help to establish the credibility of the alt-media disinformation sites. As people begin to see the inconsistencies and look for answers, there is a whole cast of colorful alt-media characters waiting to provide them. And once the disinfo sites have established credibility with the newly awakening ones, they sell them the East versus West dialectic.These events provide
3) “evidence” of how “evil” the West is, thus supporting the East vs. West dialectic. If you watch whom the disinformation sites blame for the attacks, you get the usual suspects Nazis, Zionists.

>>> “I believe it was Einstein who said you cannot solve problems with those who caused them. So, in American political life as in French political life, it is more difficult to imagine that the people who contributed to causing the crisis, to accelerating it, would be able to SOLVE it,” Le Pen said. [all-caps added] <<<
Yahtzee! Problem / Reaction / Solution. Those who “contributed to causing the crisis” (like Obama and Hollande) must be replaced by the “visionaries” who “saw it all coming” and “could have prevented it if only we’d had the power.”
All this being said, the globalists want the awakening public to see the Paris attacks as false-flags conducted by the “Nazionists” in support of an evil Western agenda. This helps them wake people up to the East versus West dialectic, establish their disinfo purveyors as “the real truth tellers,” and provide evidence that the “evil West” must be stopped by the BRICS “freedom fighters.” It also helps them in their “leadership marketing” effort of replacing the current “incompetent” leaders with their controlled opposition counterparts (Paul, Le Pen, Farage, etc.).

Old, cold fractal of the night,
he squats in an outer orbit

His coat is bright and thin.

A bare hand melts the white

I rub his back and shoulders
with a towel as if his trainer
in the corner, mid-fight,
urging him to jab but watch

the right. Another time
I might confuse
'noble' with 'polite',
the dignity of the self-assured
with the fraud of divine right.
He eats, purrs, limps off out of sight.

Beautiful poem, Rockpicker. I could almost feel the cold, wet cat with you. Thank you so much. What a treat.

I watched parts 1&2, GD. Plus listened to something Murph was watching about how there is no evidence for any civilizations older than 6,000 years or so.

I think there were catastrophic events that happened that explain how civilizations were wiped out. There was a Great Flood that probably formed the Grand Canyon, for instance. Something like that would wipe out almost all evidence of previous civilizations. Finding gears in coal deposits and things like that could be explained if coal didn't take as long as we thought to form. I like the hydro-plate idea to imagine the Flood. But, I see it as part of the expanding earth theory. The dinosaurs were too big to live with the same gravity we have today. They dispersed over the Earth so similarly because the Earth was smaller and had only one big land form back then.
This is getting too long. I have to break it up....

freeacre said...

Ambiotic oil seems plausible, given the heat and large number of undersea volcanoes. Still seems to rely on cataclysms to form large amounts at a time. Asteroids and/or comets hitting Earth periodically would probably suffice.
You can't tell me that all the life forms in the geologic record, from the troglodytes to mankind record only 6,000 years. That's a stretch just to accommodate the researcher's religion, in my opinion.
The Chinese and the Hindus have written records almost that old. They record advanced civilizations, not troglodytes or extinct reptiles, fish and mammals. Not even the cave paintings in France, which depict animals that are now extinct, like the early sabre-tooth tigers, et al.
Just to throw something else into the mix, take a look at Clif High's latest essay that is free. In it, there is a video of a really early invention that we don't quite understand yet, but that points to two different kinds of energy, and how the Great Pyramid was an energy generator of "feminine" energy. Timewise, I think it blows the Biblical accounts out of the water.
All very interesting to be sure.
