August 10, 2018 - ALIENS TELL ABDUCTEE THAT WE WILL GO THE WAY OF THE DINOSAUR
“IT was a clear, dry night. It was really crisp and frosty — just beautiful. You could have read a book with the light off the night sky, but I wasn’t drawn by the light of the stars or the moon but by a bright, surgical, white light coming from the other end of the boreen.” These are the words of County Limerick man Gerry Battles in the final moments leading up to what he is convinced was an alien abduction near his family home in Pallaskenry on December 26, 2001. The message relayed to Mr. Battles on Stephen’s Night 2001 by his alien abductor warned of Planet Earth’s pending doom and predicted that mankind could go the same way as the dinosaurs.Read more...
Oct. 6, 2018 - MYSTERIOUS SINKHOLE OF FIRE IN ARKANSAS: My question is about a strange incident in Arkansas where a hole that had been in the ground for years suddenly belched fire up to 12 feet high for 2 hours then extinguished itself. [and from another] We've "Ruled Out" Satan: Officials Baffled By Mysterious Flaming Hole In Arkansas on Sept. 17, 2018. Article. Somehow the fire extinguished itself. Answer: Midway, Arkansas is subject to a number of geological pressures, including the diagonal pull that the pending New Madrid adjustment will force on the region and the bowing stress placed upon the entire N American continent. In addition, Midway lies within a sagging and thin crust, which has resulted in lakes and rivers clustering near Midway. Thus with the triple whammy that this geology imposes, the rock strata under Midway shifts, releasing long trapped methane gas.
Oct. 11, 2018 - WILLIAM TOMKINS DISCUSSES THE DRACO REPTILIANS AND THEIR MASSIVE TUNNELS UNDERGROUND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD
I wrote about the Reptilian presence in my book ANCIENT SERPENT GODS, who I believe have been on Earth for at least 200 million years and live underground. There evidence that ancient world civilizations honored the Reptilians. Do that mean there are benevolent Reptilians and evil ones? I believe there are. You may not recognize the name William "Bill" Tomkins, but he was a former aerospace engineer, who knew that there are massive tunnels, some ET made, and other natural ones used by Reptilians. Bill died suddenly on August 21, 2017 at the age of 94, but he gave many interviews. He believed, as I do, that some of the mysterious disappearances of people and children are linked to the reptilians. He said oil and gas companies have actually hit these caverns but won't talk about it. I discovered that Linda Moulton Howe believes the reptilian race exists and have been here for millions of years. There are several fascinating interviews that Bill gave to Jeff Rense. Listen here... Also, he was interviewed on July 14, 2017 just a month before his death by Camelot. Watch Video Bill Tomkins claimed our military has known about them. The question is are they ETs or indigenous to Earth. It is my theory that they are the evolved dinosaur and have advanced technology.
August 19, 2018 - AS I WARNED IN THE PAST FEW DAYS - A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE HIT THE PACIFIC OCEAN IN AM (Reuters) - A massive quake of magnitude 8.2 at 04:28:29 UTC struck in the Pacific Ocean close to Fiji and Tonga on Sunday but it was so deep that it was not expected to cause any damage, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said. The U.S. Tsunami Warning Center also said the quake was too deep to cause a tsunami. The quake was 347.7 miles (560 km) below the Earth which would have dampened the shaking at the surface. "I would not expect any damage. People will feel it but it's so deep that I would not expect any damage," USGS geophysicist Jana Pursley said by telephone. Read more... This earthquake is a warning of deep earth movement--with volcanoes erupting and greater seismic activity worldwide. The Phoenix if flying, warning us of Earth changes.

Oct. 17, 2018 - JENNA BUSH DISCUSSES HAUNTING IN THE WHITE HOUSE
During a discussion about ghosts on the Today Show, former first daughter Jenna Bush-Hager recounted an eerie experience that she and her sister had while living in the White House. She revealed the story to co-host Hoda Kotb during Monday morning's broadcast as they were talking about the various ways which people may encounter spirits. Expressing certainty that there is "something bigger" on the 'other side,' Hager offered up a pretty compelling reason for why she believes that to be the case. She recalled a specific episode that occurred during the eight years in which she and her twin sister Barbara lived in the White House while her father, George W. Bush, was president. According to Hager, the two first daughters shared a room at the historic home during that time and, one night, they were roused from their sleep when her phone inexplicably rang. Then, she marveled, "all of a sudden, we started hearing 1920's piano music, clear as day, coming out of the fireplace." The haunted happenings did not stop there, Hager said, as the same thing unfolded a week later, except this time it was opera music. Although she and her sister "talked ourselves out of" the possibility that they had some kind of ghostly experience, a conversation with a longtime worker at the White House seemingly confirmed their fears. After incredulously telling him the story about the spooky music that she and her sister had heard, he replied, "oh, Jenna, you wouldn't believe what I've heard." Watch video...

Sept. 27, 2018 - THE REAL REASON FOR SUNSPOT OBSERVATORY CLOSING--PLANET X
I have followed Nancy and her Zeta Talk since the 1990s, and she's been spot on with many of her predictions and some have been totally out there. My impression of Sunspot is they saw a huge UFO crossing the sun or Planet X. This is what Nancy claims happened: The solar observatory in New Mexico was suddenly shuttered because those in the US government concerned that the cover-up over Nibiru aka Planet X might unravel felt there might be a rebel willing to leak proof of Nibiru to the public. This paranoia rapidly spread to other countries. The cover-up over Nibiru has the USGS dominating the earthquake releases, thus a central control effectively lying about the reported magnitude and number of quakes. NASA can delay and doctor the SOHO images, and any magnetic charts are withheld or doctored likewise. Now looking at the Sun through high powered telescopes is being withheld. Many said they saw the moon doing anomalies things in the sky and this is Nancy's take on it: How did the supposed Moon move first one way across the Sun, swooping across from upper left to lower right, and then making another pass across the Sun from lower left to upper right, during a space of only a few hours? Even presuming NASA’s SDO satellite was moving at the time, this does not account for the changes in direction nor the change in size of the eclipsing object. Nibiru is between the Earth and Sun, within the orbit of Venus. Moon Swirls are composed of a number of Moons, swirling in a circular manner around each other, thus forming the long tubes often imaged by amateur photographers using filters to bring out the Nibiru complex in their captures. As we have detailed, from the start of the ZetaTalk saga, the many moons of Nibiru are in a perpetual dance with each other, constantly on the move. This explains the swirling motion, the difference in size, and the speed of the repeat eclipse of the Sun. An eclipse by the Earth’s Moon as seen from Earth seems to have the Moon the same size as the Sun, though the Moon is eclipsing much more than the Sun itself as much of the solar corona is likewise eclipsed. When Venus passes in front of the Sun it is seen as a dot, though Venus and the Earth are the same size and Venus is much larger than the Moon. In such 2D images, proximity matters. The SDO is taking a zoom of the Sun, to capture the details, and thus anything in between the SDO satellite and the Sun are likewise zoomed. Read more - article on Sunspot is further down the page.
April 4, 2018 - GIANT CRACK FORMS WEST OF NAIROBI, KENYA - AFRICA MAY SPLIT IN HALF IN 50 MILLION YEARS
WASHINGTON -- A giant crack in the Earth opened up almost overnight, 50 feet deep and at its widest 65 feet across, slicing through a highway and terrifying many who live in an area just west of Nairobi, Kenya. So what caused it? Well, it depends which scientist you ask. "We're seeing a crack that in all likelihood formed over many thousands of years or hundreds of thousands of years," said Ben Andrews, a geologist with the Smithsonian. Some scientists, like Andrews, believe that the crack was recently exposed by a rainstorm. But he says its true cause goes deeper, and that it was created by the movement of the Earth's tectonic plates, sections of the Earth's crust that move about one inch a year. In 50 million years, he says Africa may split in two. Other scientists, like earthquake geologist Wendy Bohon, agree that Africa is slowly splitting in two, but she thinks the gash was created in a flash. Watch CBS video and article...

Oct. 14, 2018 - AL GORE: Jet Stream 'Getting Loopier and Wavier,' So 'We Have a Global Emergency'
Former Vice President Al Gore declared that scientists predicted hurricane "consequences" of climate change and warned "they're going to get a lot worse still until we stop using the Earth's atmosphere as an open sewer." Gore was reacting to this week's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report in which 91 authors and editors from 40 countries concluded there's currently a 12-year window to make “far-reaching and unprecedented changes” to avert dramatic effects of global warming. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the report should be an "ear-splitting wake-up call to the world" as "it confirms that climate change is running faster than we are – and we are running out of time."

Oct. 16, 2018 - GLOBAL WARMING AND THE VANISHING POLES - THE STAR BEINGS HAVE WARNED US ABOUT THE PLANET
Glaciers are vanishing, the poles, the Arctic and Antarctic show huge melting. Scientists say climate change is getting worse and there could be “life-or-death” consequences for our planet in the next 20 years. The new report from the U.N. predicts that at the current warming rate, millions more people will die from extreme heat by the year 2040. Between 60 and 90 percent of the world’s fresh water is frozen in the ice sheets of Antarctica, a continent roughly the size of the United States and Mexico combined. If all that ice melted, it would be enough to raise the world’s sea levels by roughly 200 feet. While that won’t happen overnight, Antarctica is indeed melting, and a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature shows that the melting is speeding up. Read more... Trump reversed his view on Global Warming this week. He said, "I think something’s happening,” he told the journalist Lesley Stahl. “Something’s changing, and it’ll change back again. I don’t think it’s a hoax. I think there’s probably a difference, but I don’t know that it’s man-made.
For the last 50 years Indigenous people and others have received messages for the Star Beings (benevolent aliens) that our world is dying and to prepare.

Oct. 18, 2018 - THE FLU THIS WINTER AND A POLIO STRAIN HITTING CHILDREN: Last year 80,000 people died of a horrible flu strain. My husband and I had a friend who caught that flu and died of pneumonia. We were all shocked by his sudden death. It's going to be another bad year for the flu and I hope all of you will take precautions. Our friend did not get a flu shot, but many did and still died. Keep your vibratory rate high during these times by eating the right food, and staying away from alcohol, drugs and fast foods. The normal vibratory rate for humans is between 62 and 68 MHz. When the body lowers to 58 MHz you catch a cold; at 57 MHz the flu, at 42 MHz cancer begins and at 25 MHz death begins. Everything in our world has a vibratory rate. Keep in mind the vibratory level of the mass consciousness now. It is very low.
Now children are getting a strange and baffling disease like polio. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has so far this year recorded 127 suspected cases of a polio-like nervous system disorder that can cause paralysis, fueling an ongoing investigation into an outbreak of the rare disease. Of those 127 illnesses, 62 cases in 22 states are confirmed to be acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), the CDC said Tuesday. The CDC recorded only 33 confirmed cases of the severe condition — which typically affects kids and can result in muscle weakness or paralysis, respiratory failure and even death — during all of last year, though there were 149 cases the year before.

Oct. 18, 2018 - UFOs AND NUCLEAR WEAPONS
Although most people are completely unaware of its existence, the UFO-Nukes Connection is now remarkably well-documented. U.S. Air Force, FBI, and CIA files declassified via the Freedom of Information Act establish a convincing, ongoing pattern of UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites extending back to December 1948. Moreover, these mysterious incursions are not ancient history, so to speak, occurring only during the Cold War era. Indeed, evidence suggests that multiple, ongoing incidents have taken place near ICBM sites operated by Malmstrom AFB, Montana, as recently as October 2012. For more than 40 years, noted researcher Robert Hastings has sought out and interviewed former and retired U.S. Air Force personnel regarding their direct or indirect involvement in nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents. These individuals—ranging from retired colonels to former airmen—report extraordinary encounters which have obvious national security implications. In fact, taken to their logical conclusion, these cases have planetary implications, given the horrific consequences that would result from a full-scale, global nuclear war. Read more...

Oct. 13, 2018 - MH FLIGHT 370 MIGHT HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED ON GOOGLE MAP IN CAMBODIAN JUNGLE
Jeff Wise, an aviation analyst, dismissed investigators' theory MH370 crashed into the Indian Ocean west of Australia after travelling across the Malaysian peninsula. Their official conclusion centered on satellite data from Inmarsat, who determined its possible crash zone after recording a series of "handshakes" with the plane. But Wise believes this communication could be incorrect. He writes on his website: "For the last four years I’ve been making the case that there is one known way by which the Inmarsat data could have been falsified as it was being transmitted from the plane. "This falsification would make the plane look like it was heading south when it was really heading north, and would explain why an exhaustive quarter-billion-dollar search of the southern seabed found no trace of the plane." Next week tech expert Ian Wilson will search the Cambodian jungle after claiming to have spotted missing flight MH370 on Google Maps. Read more and watch video... (My thoughts: it appears to be a crashed jet in the jungle of Cambodia and I sense it could be MH370. Only time will tell when people can reach that dense jungle.

People now are guilty before they are proven guilty or innocent. As I was watching the vote on TV, I was stunned by the screaming and yelling taking place in the Senate chambers and how many time Vice President Pence had to call security to bring to order the hearings. It's hysteria and rage out there and its getting worse. I believe time travel does exist, and many of the things that John Titor described have come true or could come true in our timeline. He talked about another Y2K bug that will hit in 2038 and that is true--there is one looming in our future. He said the skyline of NYC would change and it did on Sept. 11, 2001 when the Trade Towers fell. There were several thing he said about our generation that is scary: "Have you considered that your society might be better off if half of you were dead? While you sit by and watch your Constitution being torn away from you, you willfully eat poisoned food, buy manufactured products no one needs and turn an uncaring eye away from millions of people suffering and dying all around you. Is this the 'Universal Law' you subscribe to? Perhaps I should let you in on a little secret. No one likes you in the future. This time period is looked at as being full of lazy, self-centered, civically ignorant sheep. Perhaps you should be less concerned about me and more concerned about that."
