Aangirfan 21 July 2019

The rock above is supposed to be a piece of moon rock, picked up from the moon by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin.
It was given was given to the Dutch during a global tour by the three apollo 11 astronauts.
Curators at Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum discovered that the rock was in fact petrified wood.
"It's a nondescript, pretty-much-worthless stone," said Frank Beunk, a geologist involved in the investigation.
"The astronauts were removed from the ship moments before takeoff, flown to Nevada, where, a few days later, they broadcast the moon walk from the desert.
"People claimed to have seen Armstrong walking through a hotel lobby, a show girl on each arm. Aldrin was playing the slots.
"They were then flown to Hawaii and put back inside the capsule after the splash down but before the cameras arrived."
How Stanley Kubrick Staged the Moon Landing - Paris Review
Murderous Nazis were the key people in NASA.
More than 130 German scientists were employed on the design and production of the fake Apollo 11 Moon landing.
German scientists Wernher von Braun, Kurt Debus and Arthur Rudolph were Nazi war criminals, guilty of mass murder.
The shameful truth
The German rocket scientists were not nice people.
Dr Hubertus Strughold  used concentration camp detainees for high-altitude experiments - and filmed their excruciating deaths.
Arthur Rudolph would hang slave labourers if they did not work hard enough.
He later had a key role in the Apollo programme.
The shameful truth

Nobody has been to the moon.
Nothing like pocketing a trillion dollars and building space models and fake rockets for a few billion.
NASA spends 60 billion.
1000 billion - 60 billion = 940 billion left over.

Michael Cremo: "Forbidden Archaeology"
[Seems modern humans have been modern for far, far longer than mainstream diggers care to admit. Michael trowels it on.]

Talks at Google
Youtube on Oct 7, 2014
Michael A. Cremo
Historian of Archeology
Over the past two centuries, archaeologists have found bones, footprints, and artifacts showing that people like ourselves have existed on earth for many millions of years. But many scientists have forgotten or ignored these remarkable facts. Why? Primarily because they contradict the now dominant evolutionary views about human origins and antiquity. According to these views, humans like ourselves have existed for only about 100,000 or 200,000 years, and before that there were only more primitive human ancestors. This evolutionary paradigm, to which influential groups of scientists are deeply committed, has acted as a "knowledge filter." And the filtering, intentional or not, has left us with a radically incomplete set of facts for building our ideas about human origins. Recovering the complete set of facts takes us on a fascinating expedition, across five continents to various archaeological sites, some long forgotten, some the center of ongoing controversy. On the other hand, the complete set of facts is consistent with the accounts of extreme human antiquity found in the Puranas, the historical writings of ancient India.
Michael A. Cremo is research associate in history of archeology. He is a member of the World Archaeological Congress (WAC) since 1993. His WAC3 paper "Puranic Time and the Archaeological Record" was published in the Routledge One World Archaeology series volume Time and Archaeology (1999), edited by Tim Murray. He is also a member of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA). In 2004 Cremo's paper "The Later Discoveries of Boucher de Perthes at Moulin Quignon and Their Impact on the Moulin Quignon Jaw Controversy," presented at the XXth International Congress for History of Science, Liege, Belgium, was published in a conference proceedings volume of this congress, by the scientific publisher Brepols.
Cremo is the principal author of the book Forbidden Archeology, a comprehensive historical survey of archaeological anomalies. In a review in British Journal for History of Science, Tim Murray said the book "provides the historian of archaeology with a useful compendium of case studies in the history and sociology of scientific knowledge, which can be used to foster debate within archaeology about how to describe the epistemology of one's discipline."
Cremo is particularly interested in examining the history of the archeology from the standpoint of alternative worldviews, particularly worldviews with foundations in ancient Indian thought. He has given invited lectures on his work at the Royal Institution in London, the anthropology department of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, the archeology department of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, and many other scientific institutions. He has also lectured on his work at universities throughout the world.

Not just me

Some of the gent's quotes:
Democracy has nothing to do with freedom. Democracy is a soft variant of communism, and rarely in the history of ideas has it been taken for anything else.

The recently ended twentieth century was characterized by a level of human rights violations unparalleled in all of human history. In his book Death by Government, Rudolph Rummel estimates some 170 million government-caused deaths in the twentieth century. The historical evidence appears to indicate that, rather than protecting life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of their citizens, governments must be considered the greatest threat to human security.

Public officials are permitted to finance or subsidize their own activities through taxes. That is, they are permitted to engage in and live off, what in private dealings between private law subjects is prohibited and considered 'theft' and 'stolen loot.'

Thanks to the central bank, most "monetary experts" and "leading macro-economists" can, by putting them on the payroll, be turned into government propagandists "explaining," like alchemists, how stones (paper) can be turned into bread (wealth).

Throughout the history of time, a series of extinctions has taken place upon the planet Earth possibly going back millions of years according to astrophysicists. From the dinosaurs to possibly the Biblical floods of Noah and who knows how many more civilizations in between, 'Planet X' has been throwing comets from out of the Kuiper Belt into Earth's atmosphere for an eternity and may be responsible for a series of catastrophes.

The Deep State Exposed
Feb 28 2019 by Fantasy Free Economics
First understand that the Deep State is not a political or philosophical movement. The Deep State is history’s largest and most prolific crime syndicate. Is that clear enough?
The Deep State controls governments and elected officials for the purpose of generating profits for its members. The Deep State’s focus is on the United States because that is still where most of the world’s money is. Today each bill which congress passes is filled with skimming arrangements. Bills like the Affordable Care Act are really nothing but a system of distributing skimming arrangements to those deemed worthy of participating.
Like with any organized crime syndicate, plenty of people benefit from its activities. Who benefits? Mostly the beneficiaries are those who actually come out ahead based on the Mob’s activities. In New York during the 70s one of the crime families stared a skimming operation in the baking industry. At the time baked bread sold for $0.35 per loaf. The mob strong armed every bakery in the city to charge $0.50 per loaf. The bakeries got half of the difference and paid tribute to the crime family with the difference. The bakers were making more money. Do you think the bakers were unhappy? Just like with the skimming operations which work through government, the public paid more. Of course the public had no idea why bread went up in price so much but they got used to it.
This is the way legislation works. The right people benefit from the legislation and end up taking the Deep State’s side. Anyone in the United States who has owned stock over the past twenty years has benefited greatly by virtue of having the Deep State embedded in government.
It took the mob two decades to gain control of the financial sector of the United States. By 2003 with enough political power it was possible to cause broad movements in the stock averages through control of the Federal Reserve and other agencies. By 2005 some high frequency trading firms were starting up and it became possible to orchestrate short squeezes and create artificial demand by messing with derivatives. By 2006 there was an ongoing asset enhancement initiative that lived off of public funds. Regardless, by June of that year asset prices of all kinds were coming under pressure. Henry Paulson was brought in as Treasury Secretary. His job was to save the housing and equity markets and get prices moving higher. His effort was enormous, but everything tanked regardless in 2008. All was not lost. There were losses but the TARP bill managed to pass a significant amount of those losses to the taxpayers. Today, managing stock prices is a sophisticate science. Organized crime is not without its vulnerabilities. The greatest of those is that of killing the host. The mob has just about killed the host and controlling the stock market is becoming difficult and perhaps impossible. The profits are so enormous, the effort will continue regardless.
Do you ever notice that when it is important for your favorite politicians to make a stand, they behave like deer in headlights? Remember when Supreme Court John Roberts came out with his bizarre and unexpected reason why The Affordable Care Act should be deemed as constitutional? Remember when James Comey of the FBI did such crazy and unpredictable things with respect to the Clinton investigation? Clearly people like this are subject to external pressure. Think of all of the convenient deaths that have taken place in Washington DC.
The American people are neither aware of what is going on nor or they suspicious. Just remember that the Deep State is the highest possible level of organized crime.
You may ask, “Who does this guy think he is making all of these unfounded allegations?” How are these things decided when there are no hard facts on the table? It is always safe to assume folks are behaving in keeping with the incentives they have especially when there is no resistance to them doing so. If you leave a slice of moist bread out for a few days, does it make sense that it would accumulate mold? There is absolutely nothing to prevent organized crime from taking over our government and it has.

200,000 Year Old Ancient Levitation Technology That Defies the Laws of Physics
Youtube on Nov 2, 2017
Unfortunately, science has still not been able to figure out how to levitate larger heavier objects. Yet, history suggests the Ancient Civilizations might have already cracked this secret in their building of the pyramids and other megalithic monuments. Did they have some advanced form of sound levitation to move thousand ton stones—a task that present day builders admit would be difficult even with the use of modern cranes?
In many parts of the world there are enormous monoliths that even in this brilliant era of technology no advanced crane could possible raise. Our modern society is proud of its technological and scientific achievements, but we are forced to admit that our ancestors possessed unique knowledge we still cannot gain access to. This brings us to the intriguing question: “Did ancients master levitation?”

Why are 2 cones always necessary to do the levitating?

Putin Just Did a 180 on the Skripal Affair and Raised Countless Questions
By Andrew Korybko
Global Research, July 21, 2019
President Putin told Oliver Stone in an interview that he doesn’t believe that the British authorities were responsible for poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter, with this revelation representing a 180 on Russia’s previously articulated official position on the matter and raising countless questions about why the country’s leader would wait nearly a year and a half before sharing this new narrative after his top government officials and publicly financed international media outlets went all out saying the opposite.
The Alt-Media Community is dumbfounded after President Putin told Oliver Stone in an interview that he doesn’t think that the British authorities were responsible for poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter. So as not to be accused of “cherry-picking” the facts, here’s the full context of exactly what he said as published on the Kremlin’s official website (the most relevant exchange is bolded for emphasis):
“Oliver Stone: Russian bombs in Syria. What has happened to Skripal? Where is he?
Vladimir Putin: I have no idea. He is a spy, after all. He is always in hiding.
Oliver Stone: They say he was going to come back to Russia. He had some information.
Vladimir Putin: Yes, I have been told that he wants to make a written request to come back.
Oliver Stone: He knew still and he wanted to come back. He had information that he could give to the world press here in Russia.
Vladimir Putin: I doubt it. He has broken the ranks already. What kind of information can he possess?
Oliver Stone: Who poisoned him? They say English secret services did not want Sergei Skripal to come back to Russia?
Vladimir Putin: To be honest, I do not quite believe this. I do not believe this is the case.
Oliver Stone: Makes sense. You do not agree with me?
Vladimir Putin: If they had wanted to poison him, they would have done so.
Oliver Stone: Ok, that makes sense. I don’t know. Who did then?
Vladimir Putin: After all, this is not a hard thing to do in today’s world. In fact, a fraction of a milligram would have been enough to do the job. And if they had him in their hands, there was nothing complicated about it. No, this does not make sense. Maybe they just wanted to provoke a scandal.
Oliver Stone: I think it is more complicated. You know, you think I am much too much of a conspiracy guy.”

As is clearly seen from the above, President Putin doesn’t think that British intelligence had anything to do with this affair, despite his country’s previously articulated official position on the matter being the opposite, and his top government officials and publicly financed international media outlets going all out to support the original narrative for nearly a year and a half.
Like I and many others have constantly iterated, "a fraction of a milligram would have been enough," a person doesn't get novichoked and live to tell the tale.

If you want to hear the undiluted BBC perspective on Brexit, listen to last Sunday morning’s A Point of View. Writer Howard Jacobson attempts to argue that failure to deliver Brexit is not a betrayal and, of course, takes a few potshots at Trump in the process.
This was far from the righteous novelist’s first outing on the BBC, or the first opportunity they have given him to vent his spleen over Brexit and the ‘deplorable’ decision of those ignorant enough to vote in Donald Trump as President of the USA. Here he is speaking to a strangely non-confrontational, non-hectoring Emily Maitlis (winner of the TCW’s most biased BBC presenter award) about his book Pussy – described by the BBC as a ‘turbocharged satire’ about Trump – and about Brexit and democracy.

Remember. Postol: Newly Revealed Documents Show Syrian Chemical “Attacks Were Staged”
IPA May 21, 2019
The British-based Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media recently revealed an internal engineering assessment by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons that undermines claims justifying U.S. attacks on Syria.
Last year, many claimed that the Syrian government had launched a chemical weapons attack on Douma on April 7. This was used to justify strikes on Syrian government targets on April 14. The British Guardian claimed: “Syria: U.S., U.K. and France launch strikes in response to chemical attack.” NPR headlined a story: “U.S., Allies Hit 3 Syrian Sites Linked To Chemical Weapons Program.”
Theodore Postol, professor of science, technology, and international security at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, provided the Institute for Public Accuracy with his initial assessment of the newly revealed OPCW document:
“The OPCW engineering assessment unambiguously describes evidence collected by the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) that indicates two analyzed chlorine cylinder attacks were staged in April 2018 in Douma. The holes in the reinforced concrete roofs that were supposedly produced by high-speed impacts (impact at speeds of perhaps 100 m/s or more, 250 mph) of industrial chlorine canisters dropped from helicopters were instead created by earlier explosions of either artillery rockets or mortar shells. In one event a chlorine canister that was damaged on another occasion was placed on the roof with its head inserted into an existing crater hole, and in the other case a damaged chlorine cylinder was placed on a bed supposedly after it penetrated the building roof and bounced from its original trajectory into a bed. In both cases the damage to the chlorine cylinders was incompatible with the damage to the surroundings that was allegedly caused by the cylinder impacts.
“As such, 35 deaths that were originally attributed to these staged chlorine events cannot be explained and it cannot be ruled out that these people were murdered as part of the staging effort.
“The evidence provided in the OPCW report is quite clear. For example, rebar in the cement roof slabs was splayed out from the forces of an intense supersonic shockwave that produced the holes. The only source of such a violently impulsive force in this environment would be that of the shockwave from the forward end of an explosive warhead that impacted and detonated on the roof. The forward end of the explosive charge in the warhead would have been touching or nearly-touching the roof surface when it detonated. Under these conditions the near-in shockwave generated from the forward end of the cylinder shaped explosive produces a shockwave that is traveling at a very high Mach number. Such a shockwave creates a reflected shock that is tremendously hotter and more intense than the incident shock due to the extreme compression of the supersonic incident shock as it violently decelerates during its encounter with a rigid surface.

It just keeps on giving. MOA's update
Putin Confirms: Sergei Skripal Wanted To Go Back To Russia
MOA July 20, 2019
Filmmaker Oliver Stone recently interviewed the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin. The transcript was published yesterday evening. Most of the interview is about Ukraine. A separate piece will cover that country. There is also a passage about the U.S. election.
But the most interesting bits from Putin are about the Skripal affair.
The British and Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia were impaired by some chemical substance in early March 2018 in Salisbury. Britain blamed the incident on Russia. CIA Director Gina Haspel, a former CIA station chief in London, used fake pictures of the incident to deceive Trump and to push him to kick out 60 Russian diplomats. (The NYT later ran cover for Haspel.)
We have speculated since the very beginning of the Skirpal case that the 'former' spy wanted to go back to Russia. Putin now confirms, to my knowledge for the first time, that this was the case (underline added):
Oliver Stone: What has happened to Skripal? Where is he?
Vladimir Putin: I have no idea. He is a spy, after all. He is always in hiding.
Oliver Stone: They say he was going to come back to Russia. He had some information.
Vladimir Putin: Yes, I have been told that he wants to make a written request to come back.
Oliver Stone: He knew still and he wanted to come back. He had information that he could give to the world press here in Russia.
Vladimir Putin: I doubt it. He has broken the ranks already. What kind of information can he possess?
The information Sergei Skripal possessed might have been related to the U.S. election and the Steele dossier which alleged that Russia had dirt on Trump. On March 8 2018, only a few days after the Sergei and Julia Skripal were allegedly poisoned, we discussed the connection in our first post on the Skripal affair:
[Christopher] Steele was an MI6 undercover agent in Moscow around the time when Skripal was recruited and handed Russian secrets over to the MI6. He [later] ran the MI6 Russia desk so anything about Skripal will have passed through him. It is very likely that they personally knew each other. Pablo Miller, who worked for Steele's private company [Orbis], lived in the same town as Skripal and they seems to have been friends since Miller had recruited him. Miller or someone else attempted to cover up the connection to Steele by editing his LinkedIn entry.
Here are some question:
Did Skripal help Steele to make up the "dossier" about Trump?
Were Skripal's old connections used to contact other people in Russia to ask about Trump dirt?
Did Skripal threaten to talk about this?
If there is a connection between the dossier and Skripal, which seems very likely to me, then there are a number of people and organizations with potential motives to kill him. Lots of shady folks and officials on both sides of the Atlantic were involved in creating and running the anti-Trump/anti-Russia campaign. There are several investigations and some very dirty laundry might one day come to light. Removing Skripal while putting the blame on Russia looks like a convenient way to get rid of a potential witness.
The British government issued a D-Notice which prohibited the British press from further mentioning Pablo Miller.
We also speculated that Skripal wanted to go back to Russia:

Elon Musk finally admitted late Tuesday that Neurolink’s (Musk’s brain-machine interface startup) official goal is to eventually merge human brains with artificial intelligence. The ultimate ending would be to “achieve a symbiosis with artificial intelligence.”
Musk plans to begin human trials on an early version of Neuralink intended to treat brain injuries next year, and he says that by “merging with AI,” humans will be able to keep up with AI. “Ultimately we can do a full brain-machine interface,” Musk said in an announcement that was widely live-streamed, according to a report by Vice. “This is going to sound pretty weird. Ultimately we can achieve a symbiosis with artificial intelligence. This is not a mandatory thing, this is something you can choose to have if you want. This is going to be really important at a civilization-level scale. Even in a benign AI scenario, we will be left behind. With a high-bandwidth brain-machine interface, we can go along for the ride and have the option of merging with AI.”
Even though Musk claims it won’t be “mandatory,” things could always change. Laws could begin to mandate anyone who wants to participate in society to link their brain with AI. Especially considering Neuralink has operated largely in secret since it was announced in 2017. Information about Neurolink from public records documents obtained by Gizmodo show that it has been funding primate research studies at universities in California. Tuesday was the company’s “coming out party.”
Musk stated that his goal with this presentation (video below) was to recruit engineers and scientists to Neurolink’s team.

The age of genetic wonder | Juan Enriquez
Youtube on Mar 1, 2019
Gene-editing tools like CRISPR enable us to program life at its most fundamental level. But this raises some pressing questions: If we can generate new species from scratch, what should we build? Should we redesign humanity as we know it? Juan Enriquez forecasts the possible futures of genetic editing, exploring the immense uncertainty and opportunity of this next frontier.

The Cliff Edge of a Second EU Referendum!
Andrew Cheetham

Has there ever been a time when so many that purport to represent the people have betrayed the nation?
clothcapclothcap on July 23rd, 2019 11:15 am (UTC)
The illegitimacy and illegality of the European Union – and thus of ALL its constituent structures, including the European Central Bank – arises from the following facts:
• The British Treaty of Accession was signed by two agents of the German ‘Black’ Nazi intelligence continuum, DVD [•see below], based in Dachau, near Munich. The two signatories, both of whom received substantial financial rewards for their ‘cooperation’, were: Edward Heath and Geoffrey Rippon. Together with the late Roy Jenkins, they were recruited/compromised by the German Abwehr while studying at Balliol College, Oxford.
That is to say, official signatories and senior policymakers/operatives have received, and routinely receive, substantial corrupt payments, remitted to their secret offshore bank accounts, in exchange for their ‘cooperation’ in pushing through successive EU treaties. The bribery funds are derived from a colossal secret ‘Black Operations’ slush fund account located in Switzerland – the title and size of which is divulged in the report. For instance:
• $5.0 billion was allocated from the Swiss slush fund to ‘procure’ the European Constitution Treaty, divided into two tranches:
1. $2.5 billion was payable (and paid) on completion of the Inter Governmental Conference [IGC], in July/August of 2004, with $100 million allocated for each of the 25 EU ‘Member States’. The corrupt bribery funds were remitted in Euros.
2. A further $2.5 billion ($100 million for each ‘Member State’) was payable on ratification of the Collective Treaty. Given the negative referendum results delivered by the French and Dutch electorates, payment of the second tranches has been a matter of understandable tension and contention ever since, not least since such ‘Black’ remittances, which are commonplace at the intergovernmental level, are illegal – and therefore ‘never happened’.

Intelligence sources have provided International Currency Review with the name of the secret Swiss bank account, the vast amount of ‘Black’ money it holds, the amounts allocated for each corrupted EU ‘Member State’, and the names of three of the most prominent alleged recipients of ‘Black’ payments, together with details of the alleged transactions concerned.

These revelations have become possible following the death of Sir Edward Heath, who was a German agent and asset for six decades, representing the longest known foreign intelligence penetration in modern history.
It is significant that the Obituary of Heath published in The Guardian on 18th July 2005, closed with the following cryptic sentence:
‘He [Heath] remained determined that he would be vindicated, until close to the end’.
This referred to the fact that when Heath visited Salzburg in 2003, ostensibly to attend the Music Festival there, the real reason for his visit was that he had been summoned to Dachau, where DVD officers warned him that British intelligence were intending to confront him with his treachery. It is reported that, on hearing this, Heath literally ‘blew a fuse’: he suffered a pulmonary embolism.
A similar fate attended the demise of Roy (Lord) Jenkins, who suffered a severe heart attack when confronted by intelligence officials with the fact that he was about to be exposed for his long-term treachery against the United Kingdom. Jenkins was one of the most lethal of all long-term German agents operating at the highest levels of the British Government. And the present allegedly deeply compromised Prime Minister, Tony Blair, is the late Lord Jenkins’ protégé.
BoJo's premiership just got confirmed. All the traitors must now resign.
