The "American Military Industrial Complex" - shared by Billy Carson on Facebook

You Grow Up Wanting to be ‪#‎LukeSkywalker‬, Then Realize You’ve Become a‪#‎Stormtrooper‬ for the ‪#‎Empire‬. Someone asked... "How do you ‪#‎Americans‬as a people walk around head held high, knowing that every few months your country is committing a #911 size atrocity to other people. Imagine if the 9/11 terror attacks were happening in america every few months. Again and again, innocent people dying all around you. Your brothers and sisters. For no reason?" 

‪#‎DanielCrimmins‬ from U.S. Army 3rd Infantry Division answered: "You fight, you kill, you watch friends die, and you notice a distinct lack of change. You kick in doors and tell terrified women to sit on the floor while you and your friends ransack their home, tearing the place apart, because they might be hiding weapons. There is no reason to believe this house in particular is enemy, same for the next one, and the one after that, or the seven before; they just happened to be there, and maybe they had weapons. Probably not, they almost never did. There were a few times when we had deliberate raids based on solid intel and we’d turn up some stuff, but generally we were just tossing houses because we could.... Then you realize you haven’t seen anything to support the idea that these poor fuckers are a threat to your home. You look around and you see all the contractors making six figure salaries to fix your shit, train Iraqis, maintain the ridiculous SUVs the KBR dicks ride around in. You consider the fact that every 25mm shell costs about forty bucks, and your company has been handing those fuckers out like shrapnel flavored parade candies. You think about all the fuel you’re going through, all the ammo and missiles and grenades. You think about every time you lose a vehicle, the Army buys a new one. Maybe you start to see a lot of people making a lot of money on huge amounts of Human Suffering.‪" #‎StopWars‬ ‪#‎WarIsABusiness‬ ‪#‎4biddenknowledge‬ ‪#‎TheDarkSide‬

Well said. And 'Thank you'.

WHO IS: "Jesus the Sun of God who takes away the Sin of the world."


The video below shows how the story of Jesus - the death and resurrection of the Sun - comes to us from mythologies that pre-date Iesus Christus by many thousands of years...

The Babylonian Origins of Easter Ishtar

Published on Mar 3, 2012

Do you know why the date of our Easter celebrations moves around so much from end March to late April? It's because Easter was originally celebrated on the first full moon after the Spring Equinox - of the northern hemisphere that is. Easter truly is a Sun God celebration.

Ever since the fourth century, ie: from 300-399 AD during which time the Council of Nycea (325 AD) took place when the Roman oligarchy hi-jacked the true teaching of a man called 'Jesus' or 'Apollonius of Tyana' or some other great teacher of the time, for "Anglicans and Catholics, Easter Sunday has been the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox – a convoluted formula which means the date can vary by more than a month from year to year."

Note: Anglicans basically are Catholics who simply don't bow to the Pope or to 'Mother Mary' the Babylonian 'Queen of Heaven' otherwise known as "Semiramis". The Nicean Creed in the Anglican liturgy reads:
"I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church..."

- That is: the 'general' church that was set up by the Romans in 325 AD.

Isn't it interesting that church leaders in England are now trying to bring Easter celebrations to a fixed date, and not according to Sun cycles?  Perhaps church leaders real-eyes (realize) that the literate populations of the earth in the 21st century will pretty quickly catch on that the so-called "Christianity" that came out of Rome as she fell (by 500 AD), is a Roman cross-pollination of their pagan religion, "Mithraism"?

Is "Christianity" more rightly called "Crux-tianity" or "Cross-tianity" since it's all about the Sun 'dying' for three days on the Southern Cross?  As humanity awakens, we will continue to recognize the fiction in the Cruci- (another "cross" word) - fiXion = "Crucifixion".

The word "Crucifixion" is one of the only words in the English language to have an "X" (or cross) to denote the "-ic, -ec, -uc" sound, whereas most every other word with this sound is written as "-iction, -ection, -uction" ??  Of course, we'd clearly be able to see the fiction then, of the "Cruci-fiction" story if it was spelled this way. Please compare to "benediction, election, trajection, seduction, rejection". No X's there whatsoever. But it's still the exact same sound! A-ha - "fixation" has the 'x' whose root of course is "fix-". Therefore, is "Cruci-fix-ion" actually about having a mindset "fixed" on or "fixated" on "The Cross", ie: the Southern Cross mythology?

"Hidden in plain sight".

Please note: The Egyptian mythological figure called "Sin" was the father of the sun god alternatively called Shamash.  "Sin" or "Shamash" is notably a reference to the full moon.

So of course the Sun God defeats Sin when "He" (the Sun) is hung on the Cross, ie: the Sun defeats the first full moon (Sin) after the March northern hemisphere Spring equinox. The southern cross constellation reference to December 22-25 is when the baby was born who was going to take away the "Sin" of the world. This Sun defeats Sin story of March-April tied into the Cross symbolism of the Winter Solsice on Dec 22-25, completes the Roman mythological cycle. Roman "Christianity" IS paganism.

This exact solar cycle (first full moon after the spring equinox) is also attached to child sacrifice as carried out in the cult of Molech or Baal, referenced in the old testament (Torah) many times. This cult was well-known in the ancient world. Thousands of innocent newborns and older babies were sacrificed at exactly this time of year, to Ishtar also known as Easter and her husband Molech or Baal, all over the eastern mediterranean from Egypt, through Canaan and into Babylon.

The "Easter" cult is pure evil !!!

It's called "Satanism" today, and is practiced by thousands of leading US politicians and heads of global corporations the world over, right now.  Hundreds of thousands of children 'go missing' every year in the USA and the UK. This is why there's so many go missing... The cult of Molech, whose animal is the owl, still stands in Bohemian Grove northern California to this day. This is where the leaders of nations and the world's biggest corporations gather every Saturnalia - just like in the Roman times. Even the Popes have sacrificed children in what they call "Black Masses".

This is the true and hidden religion of "Easter" = Ishtar, the fertility goddess who demanded the sacrifice of babies and young children... exactly as Ricky Dearman (search on this blog) and the Satanic cult in Hampstead, London (search on this blog) does today. They're likely sacrificing right now... this very weekend.  And yeah... those Satanists (search on this blog) cook and "eat the baby flesh" as well, just like the 'good Christians' eat the flesh of the baby in their church services.

We just have to get our heads around all of this and know how to read these words according to their origins. These words "Easter, Son of God (= Sun of God), Cross, Sin" are not what we think they mean. They come down to us from the pagan institutions of the "Mystery Religions" that are thousands of years old. Those Mystery Religions feature lots of eggs and rabbits. How else can we explain the proliferation of eggs and rabbits associated with "Christianity" all over the Christianized world?  There's no other explanation. Easter = Ishtar = Semiramis - the Babylonian "Queen of Heaven" c.850 BC.  Yes, she was a real human being. Babylonian Queen Semiramis c.850 BC was called "The Queen of Heaven" just like Mary, the so-called "Mother of Jesus" is called "The Queen of Heaven" to this day in the Catholic Church.

Are you starting to see yet how insidious all of this is?

Karen Hudes update: The "Global Currency Reset". Feb 6, 2016

Germany to Break off US Alliance if Federal Reserve Not Ended *** Karen Hudes

Published on Feb 6, 2016

Transcript notes:

1:00  Host Qu:  What are you focussing on?  What stage are we at for the global currency reset?

1:45  Karen:  We are right on track. Just look at what Germany is doing re: its alliance with the United States. We know that Germany is going to break off its alliance with the United States if we (the US) doesn't kick out the Federal Reserve, which is a private bank.

3:40  The US dollar is something quite different from the Federal Reserve note.  The Federal Reserve note is unconstitutional.

4:20 At the centre of this super-entitiy is the Bank for International Settlements - which is 60 private central banks. All of those banks are working together as one entity.

4:45  That super-entity owns the media, including 80% at least of the so-called "alternative media" on the internet. So people are not getting an accurate picture of what's going on.

5:00  Qu:  How and who is going to make that call to get rid of the (US) Federal Reserve?

5:05  Karen:  It's already decided. It will be done by a coalition which was predicted by a very powerful analytical tool that was developed in the (US) Department of Defence in 2004.  This tool predicts how coalitions are formed - that's what the BRICS are. There are 144 countries in this coalition. They work together with people in the United States who understand what a scam this paper currency is. This is the coalition who is taking down the FED. It is centred at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

6:35  There is a battle between the "coalition" and the network of Global Corporate Control.

7:30  The coalition have already 'taken out' the FED and the Bank of International Settlements.

8:45  Karen: How did all these bonds end up never-the-less back into this Trust - the Global Debt Facility?

9:20  80% of what you're looking at in the alternative media is disinformation...  Any time you hear a story about the 'red' or the 'green' or whatever color 'dragon', that is CIA disinformation.

11:45  The gold belongs to the nations. There is no gold 'monetary gold' in Fort Knox. It's in this Trust. I offered General Dempsey the monetary gold reserves of the US. This told everyone that he was not a 'White Knight'. He was working for the network of Global Corporate Control.

14:00  Qu:  What's going to happen to cash over this next year?

14:15  Karen:  You have to get together and make sure there is a local currency for your area. It creates employment and a vibrant currency.  (On the individual level): Get some precious metals, so if there is no smooth transition, you will still be able to buy what you need to survive.

17:45  Our elections are a joke.

18:15  The professions are all there to perpetuation this scam - lawyers, journalists, accounting...

19:00  The States are not giving you your Title once you've finished paying off your mortgage. We are under military rule.  It's not the President.  It's the highest ranked General in the U.S.

20:20  We are in 'inter regnum'.  They are all part of the scam.

20:55  Qu: Who is running it? Who is at the core?

21:15  Karen:  It's all being run by the network of Global Corporate Control. Everything's being 'staged'.

21:50  Qu: The UN?  Is this at the centre of control?

22:40  Karen: It's the coalition for the "rule of law" on the Board of Governors of the World Bank and the IMF.

23:20  Qu: Do you foresee the new system as being good?

23:40  Karen: It depends on two things -  (1) Protection for whistleblowers, (2) Are people going to wake up and be on the ball. The most important thing they need to do is to stop trusting the experts!

26:10  I'm looking to see whether Germany is moving into the BRICS, and the answer is:  Yes they are.  Germany is the fourth biggest investor in the BRICS Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).

27:20  Most of the gold is physically located in the Philippines.

26:20  Germany and the U.S. will help the AIIB in the Global Currency Reset.

March 2016 Nibiru update: The Nibiru System is getting nearer.

This is more-or-less what I saw this morning in my dream. The sky was bluer and the chemtrail bands were much wider... like a tartan kilt. And the second part of my dream confirmed what the first dream of the chemtrails alluded to.


Early this morning I dreamt of wide stripes of chemtrails crossing over in the sky, over New Zealand. We have been very fortunate here to have not experienced heavy chemtrailing before, unlike so many other countries. We have been chemtrailed a little in the past here... I've seen some photos, but not like the striping in my dream. In my dream, I became so angry with our Prime Minister John Key that I vowed to kill him !! This did not happen in my dream at all, because I was somehow way-layed in a bathroom discussing my anger with some other women!  :D  Lol... Dreams huh?  But I know in my dream, all NZ'ers could now see that John Key is just puppet of his American masters... and John Key had allowed those corporations/ mafia bosses to poison our atmosphere. We were extremely cross. All New Zealanders could see the truth of who John Key is... so it was a good day in fact, not a bad one, from that point of view.

The dream must have continued as I returned back to sleep in the early hours of this morning... When I woke up, the word and the image in my mind was "Nibiru". The Nibiru system is very near. I 'saw' it in my half-sleep half-awake state as a huge dully glowing white orb that stood there in a blue sky. It took up a good chunk of the sky...  much, much bigger than the moon... eg: 5-10 times as big as the moon in appearance ?? In fact, the planet will still be very far away from us at its closest to the earth, but because of its immense size, it will appear very close to us. So don't panic if it appears huge and close. That's simply because it is huge... much huger than you or I could imagine right now, but it will be very far away  : )  I don't think it will get here for another year or two... but it's definitely on its way.


I've had two other significant dreams before about Nibiru. One dream was to indicate the season (month) which was between mid-November to early February.  The second dream was of seeing the two "suns" setting in my urban environment... Two huge orange glowing balls going down. Ie: Everybody is going to witness this phenomena, all over the world.

I noticed this morning after my dream that I am 'feeling' its presence now (that's different compared to 5 years ago when I had my first dream), rather than just depending on my eyes... watching video, reading articles, and watching the skies. This 'feeling' is the same as you get, when you "just know" that somebody is watching you. That's the feeling. I also have the (physical) feeling that Nibiru (the outer planet of the Nibiru brown dwarf star system) is a hollow "planet". I don't feel as strong a gravitational pull from it as I would have expected... so I don't think it's solid. Therefore, it could come quite close to earth (eg: closer to us than Venus or Mars) and we will not be perturbed by it. Many commentators are expecting the worst. I'm not so sure now... I certainly have more of a feeling of benevolent ET contact such as the Blue Avians Corey Good talks about, or the 7th-9th dimensional Arcturians i've had experience with. So this makes me think "orb" rather than "planet".

The final video at the end provides some excellent explanations from a scientist who knows how to break down all the information for people with no astro-physics degree, like you and me  : )

In summation: Humanity still needs to prepare for the days ahead - So store water and buy seed. Some commentators say the passing of the seven planets in the Nibiru system as it goes past earth, will not cause as much cataclysmic devastation compared to what it's done in the past. Please go to 1:07:00 on the second video below with Bob Evans. I've added a bunch of shorter videos below as well. These are very compelling in making a case to the affirmative, that there is something out there.

All we can do is: Prepare.  Take some very simple steps...  Store drinking water. Buy seeds. Buy dry foodstuffs (lentils, rice and so on), get a camping cooker, a charcoal-fired barbecue or collect wood for outdoor cooking. You'll need matches/lighters, candles, garden solar lights you can bring inside at night for lighting, a spade to dig with to plant your gardens as all supply-chains for food will cease, cloth nappies/diapers, some musical instruments to help ease people's souls during the time when the electricity and phones go down - lots of electrcal EMF and RF disturbances. It's possible that many people will perish due to tidal and ocean water fluctuations, earthquakes, volcanic activity, and so on... meteors and asteroids... Infrastructure breaking down as a result, eg: gas explosions, nuclear facility catastrophe. These companies need to be wise and perform shut-downs when they become aware of waves of meteor showers hitting various regions and as geo-thermal activity ramps up.

Choose to be among those who live. Set your heart's intention, and whatever your thoughts are for your future, so it will be. I don't think any nation will be safe... The "devastations" (if any) I feel will happen in pockets here and there, rather than devastate whole countries. High ground (obviously) is a good idea.

Nibi (or similar) is on its way!  And none of us can predict the future. We'll just have to see what happens when it gets here. Make plans... Choose life !!   : )

Balil Erdogan - TURKISH PRESIDENT'S SON - The man behind ISIS

Erdogan’s son abandoned Bologna 

over 'security' reasons - report

Russia Today
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s son has reportedly been forced to return home from Italy due to security concerns, with a money laundering investigation being conducted against him by Italian authorities perhaps a more plausible reason.
Bilal Erdogan, 35, who has been in Bologna with his family since last autumn, texted his friends in Turkey, telling them he has to return with his family, according to local media.
“Our security in Bologna has become a very sensitive issue both for the Italian and the Turkish government,” he allegedly texted one of his friends, Resto del Carlino reported. The text message ends with a promise to return to Italy one day when things there are more "peaceful."
Bilal said he went to Bologna with his wife and children to finish his PhD studies at Bologna’s Johns Hopkins University.
However, critics say that in 2013 he was involved in a massive graft scandal linked to Turkey's ruling AKP party, where Bilal was complicit in a money laundering scheme endeavoring to bypass United States-led sanctions on Iran.
The complaint filed in February by Erdogan's detractors alleges that €1 billion from the corrupt scheme is still unaccounted for.
Soon after Bilal Erdogan’s arrival in Bologna, Turkish whistleblower Fuat Avni said on Twitter that Bilal flew to Italy with cash, saying: 
“They [the Erdogan family] are planning to keep Bilal in Italy until the election. They will determine whether he will be coming back according to the situation after the election [in November].”
Prosecutors in Bologna opened an investigation into allegations of money laundering by Bilal Erdogan after a key opposition member in Turkey alleged the 35-year old took large amounts of money to Italy last September.
The claim was made in September 2015 by Turkish businessman Murat Hakan Huzan, whose brother Cem Huzan founded Turkey’s Youth Party. A political opponent of President Tayyip Erdogan, Murat Hakan Huzan is living in exile in France.
In 2013, Turkish investigators arrested numerous top officials and members of their families on corruption charges. A total of 52 people, including several family members of cabinet ministers, were detained. Fourteen were accused of bribery, corruption, fraud, money laundering and gold smuggling. Among the suspects were many close friends of Bilal Erdogan and the Turkish president’s son himself was said to be a suspect.
Soon afterwards, in February 2014, Turkey was stunned with an audio recording posted on YouTube, in which President Erdogan was reportedly heard telling Bilal to get rid of tens of millions of dollars in case the investigators came to his house. The president described the recordings as a "vile montage," according to AFP.

Though the SVR has long known of Bilal Erdogan’s links with Islamic State terrorists on behalf of his father’s criminal cartel, this report continues, there were only two Western reporters this past year who reported to their viewers/readers on these facts, Serena Shim and Jacky Sutton, who both were raped and murdered by Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT) under orders given personally by President Erdogan.

Brics bank ‘open for business’
BY LINDA ENSOR, 07 MARCH 2016, 12:01

THE New Development Bank is formally "open for business," the Treasury said on Monday.

This follows the signature of an agreement late in February between China and the New Development Bank regarding the bank’s headquarters in Shanghai. The agreement completed all the necessary legal procedures for the bank to begin operations.

It is preparing for its first batch of projects, which could be launched in April. According to the bank’s media statements from Shanghai, it aims to lend up to $2bn this year.

The bank would place a lot of emphasis on the speed of its financing, the bank’s president, Indian banker KV Kamath said.

He said the first projects would be green energy ventures and infrastructure projects in member countries.

The Treasury said the bank was in the process of establishing its African regional centre in Johannesburg and had begun the process of recruiting staff. Former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene said on Monday that he had not received any further clarity about his position at the bank in SA, the reason given by President Jacob Zuma for his sudden removal from office in December. The president said Mr Nene had been removed as finance minister so he could head the regional centre in SA.

The 2016-17 budget review noted that SA’s first instalment of R2bn to the bank was paid in 2015 and made provision for further commitments of R11.8bn over the next three years (R3.75bn this year) to fulfil SA’s obligations to the bank.

Given the government’s straitened fiscal circumstances, this commitment has required the reprioritisation of spending in other areas.

With India providing the bank’s president, the bank’s four vice-president’s come from each of the other Brics member countries (Brazil, Russia China and SA). SA’s vice-president is Leslie Maasdorp, who, as chief financial officer, will be responsible for treasury and portfolio management as well as the finance, budgeting and accounting functions.

The bank was set up by Brics members with the aim of financing infrastructure and sustainable initiatives. It has been estimated that developing countries will need additional spending of almost $1-trillion a year for the next 20 years to meet their infrastructure requirements. It will have total capital of $100bn, 12.5% of which is to be paid in by the members in the first seven years, and a starting capital of $50bn, with each member country contributing $10bn.

Background here:

New Development Bank BRICS

The New Development Bank BRICS (NDB BRICS), formerly referred to as the BRICS Development Bank, is multilateral development bank operated by the BRICS states (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) as an alternative to the existing US-dominated World Bank and International Monetary Fund. The Bank is set up to foster greater financial and development cooperation among the five emerging markets. Together, the four original BRIC countries comprise in 2014 more than 3 billion people or 41.4 percent of the world’s population, cover more than a quarter of the world’s land area over three continents, and account for more than 25 percent of global GDP. It will be headquartered in Shanghai, China. Unlike the World Bank, which assigns votes based on capital share, in the New Development Bank each participant country will be assigned one vote, and none of the countries will have veto power.

BRICS countries launch New Development Bank

Leaders from the BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa – formally launched a joint international development bank on Tuesday during their annual summit, held this year in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza. Headquartered in Shanghai, the bank will finance infrastructure and sustainability projects in BRICS and other emerging and developing countries. 
The New Development Bank, as it will be called, will have US$100 billion in initial authorised capital at its disposal. The BRICS countries will initially underwrite half that amount – US$50 billion – with each putting forward equal contributions of US$10 billion.
The rotating presidency of the bank will first go to India, leaders said in the Fortaleza Declaration, with Brazil chairing the bank’s first board of directors. Russia, for its part, will chair the first board of governors, while a regional centre will be set up concurrently in South Africa.



Since its inception, the BRICS has expanded its activities in two main streams of work: (i) coordination in meetings and international organization; and (ii) the development of an agenda for multisectorial cooperation among its members.

In relation to the BRICS coordination in international fora and organizations, the mechanism focusses on the economic-financial and political governance spheres. As to the first, the BRICS agenda prioritized G-20 cooperation, including the IMF reform. In the political realm, the BRICS advocate the reform of the United Nations and of its Security Council, aiming for more inclusive representation and a more democratic international governance. Moreover, the BRICS maintain a constant dialogue on the main issues on the international agenda.

Five years after the first Summit, in 2009, the intra-BRICS activities already cover 30 areas such as: agriculture, science and technology, culture, outer space, think tanks, Internet governance and security, social welfare, intellectual property, health, and tourism, among others.

The economic-financial sphere stands out as one of the most promising areas of activity for the BRICS. Two instruments of special importance were signed at the VI BRICS Summit (Fortaleza, July 2014): the constituent agreements of the New Development Bank (NDB) – aimed at the financing of infrastructure projects and sustainable development in emerging economies and developing countries – and the Contingent Reserves Arrangement (CRA) – which has the goal of promoting mutual support amongst the BRICS members in situations of instability in the balance of payments. The initial capital subscribed to the NBD was $50 billion and the authorized capital was $100 billion. The resources allocated to the CRA, in turn, will amount to $100 billion.

Bonjour amis en France ... Bienvenue sur mon blog.


Hello friends in France ... Welcome to my blog.

It is nearly four years since I started writing this blog. Since it began, my audience has mainly been the US and Russia. I often write articles about these two nations, therefore this would be expected, right?

Il est près de quatre ans que je commencé à écrire ce blog. Depuis qu'il a commencé, mon public a été principalement aux États-Unis et la Russie. J'écris souvent des articles sur ces deux nations, donc cela serait prévu, non?

Therefore, imagine my surprise that for this last fortnight, the main audience of this blog has come from France.

Par conséquent, imaginez ma surprise que pour cette dernière quinzaine, le principal public de ce blog est venu de France.

I give you now, this formal welcome. I am happy to be of service to the people of the great French nation. I hope my point of view is interesting for you and we can develop a friendship over time.

Je vous donne maintenant, cet accueil formel. Je suis heureux d'être de service à la population de la grande nation française. J'espère que mon point de vue est intéressant pour vous et nous pouvons développer une amitié au fil du temps.

New Zealand was colonized by many French migrants in the nineteenth century. In particular, many French settlers were attracted to a beautiful harbor in the South Island near Christchurch. Many descendants of these migrants remain there to this day, living in a small town called "Akaroa".

La Nouvelle-Zélande a été colonisée par de nombreux migrants français au XIXe siècle. Plus particulièrement, de nombreux colons français ont été attirés par un beau port de l'île du Sud près de Christchurch. De nombreux descendants de ces migrants restent là jusqu'à ce jour, vivant dans une petite ville appelée "Akaroa".

A strong flavour of French culture still exists in Akaroa as we see in these photos which were taken at the "Akaroa French Festival", which takes place every year. Please enjoy.

Une forte saveur de la culture française existe encore dans Akaroa comme on le voit sur ces photos qui ont été prises à la "Akaroa festival français", qui a lieu chaque année. Amusez-vous.

Thank you very much everybody.  I extend love and peace to you and  your families.

Merci beaucoup, tout le monde.. Je tiens amour et de paix pour vous et vos familles.
