JOKER alert!!!

Sorry, quick post...more soon! This event happened last Saturday, January 25th.

TOWN OF RESEBURG, Wis. - Sheriff's authorities say a Thorp man painted his face like the Joker in the movie "The Dark Knight" and then attacked his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend as the couple slept.

A criminal complaint filed in Clark County says 26-year-old Cole Vetterkind broke into Jason Benzschawel's home in the town of Reseburg last Saturday along with another man, then started choking Benzschawel as he slept with Alecia Swensen.

Benzschawel says his attacker was wearing a ski mask and when it was removed he saw it was Vetterkind, with his face painted like Batman's nemesis.

The complaint says Benzschawel grabbed a loaded shotgun and shot Vetterkind in the leg while Swensen ran to get help.

Authorities say Vetterkind's accomplice drove him to a hospital in Stanley and he was later airlifted to Saint Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield.

Good O'le Boys...

Change? Let's not fool ourselves folks...the only things that really changes are the prices WE pay for things, and the revolving door of Elites we elect to represent us in Hallowed Halls all across the nation.

The Annual Alfalfa Club (founded in 1913) or more to the point, the celebration of Southern General Robert E. Lee's birthday, takes place this weekend in D.C.

Sharing the stage this year...Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. If you wanna know the vibe around this little get-to-gether consider that women weren't allowed to attend until 1993-94 (Hillary Clinton), although blacks actually were allowed to swill grain alcohol and make libations to dear old Robert E. Lee all the way back in the 1970's. I guess the times are a changing after all. The name "Alfalfa" is supposedly in honor of a plant known to do anything for a drink.

An exclusive Washington, D.C. club for the rich and powerful, founded in 1913. Its sole purpose is to hold an annual banquet each January honoring the birthday of General Robert E. Lee. There are approximately 200 members. Each member is eligible to bring up to two guests to the $200-a-plate dinner. The club always serves filet mignon and lobster.

No press coverage is allowed inside the banquet hall and the proceedings are ostensibly secret, but the Washington newspapers always seem to get a fairly detailed blow-by-blow description anyway. Regardless, the congenial atmosphere lends itself to politically-incorrect humor. In essence the event is just another roast, providing one more showcase for Washington bigwigs to unveil their professionally-written jokes.

Just for fun, the Alfalfa Club leadership nominates a presidential candidate every year (not just election years). The candidate is required to deliver an acceptance speech at the event. Past nominees include: General Glen E. Edgerton, Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson (1953), Merle Thorpe (1955), Senator Prescott Bush (1959), Richard M. Nixon (1965), Ronald Reagan (1974), George H.W. Bush, Dick Lugar (1996), George W. Bush (1998), Alan Simpson (1999), James Wolfensohn (2000), John McCain (2001), Ted Stevens (2003), and Jack Valenti (2004).

In 1917, club member H. Ralph Burton published a 12-page booklet entitled The Origin, History and Object of the Alfalfa Club. As described by a rare book seller: "The author proposes that the truth about the alfalfa club was written in a remote section of the Rosetta stone."

According to wikipedia: In essence, the Rosetta Stone is a tax amnesty given to the temple priests of the day, restoring the tax privileges they had traditionally enjoyed from more ancient times.

Club motto: Bis dat, qui cito dat. From latin : he gives twice who gives promptly

The following list includes only bonafide inductees of the club, and not any of their invited dinner guests. The year of induction may be found inside each individual member's profile, when available.

For anyone dealing with the shadowy workings of The Secret Commonwealth or general "conspiracy" research at large, the topic of Bloodlines is one that will ultimately cross your path. People from all walks of life seem to be fascinated with the subject as well; the tracing of family trees becomes an obsession for many, and even New Agers seeking past life regression therapy seem to cling to the well beaten path of histories most notable personages (Specifically Cleopatra, who consumated with Caesar/Kaiser and Mark Antony with whom she conceived TWINS...see Jennifer Lopez as resonator).

One side of the bloodstained trail being left to us on this journey as "seekers" which has been almost seamlessly integrating itself into the very fiber of our culture today is the phenomena of TWINS. The synchromystic circle has been particularly struck with the concepts of mirroring or doubling, a logical result of the destruction of the mother of all TWINS on 9/11, 2001. Even the location of the "Mega Ritual" laughs in the face of conventional wisdom...quoting German New Waver and UFO guru Nina Hagan: "a city so nice they had to name it twice" New York, New York. 9/11 skeptic and dream weaving wizard David Lynch was prepping us for this period when he changed the face of Television with his doppelganger laden labyrinth "Twin Peaks"...if anyone taught me to read a new language it was him.

Then, this week, TWINS made news multiple times, obviously "peaking" my interest. The story that started things, and to which I have not commented on until now was the rather disturbing "Boys from Brazil" piece on the "TWIN town" of Linha São Pedro which author/historian Jorge Camarasa suggests is the result of renegade Nazi Josef Menegle's twisted medical experiments. In an odd way, I was almost expecting something like this to rear it's polycephalin heads in the current Weimar Republic climate which we find ourselves ever closer spiraling towards [Of course, I also was envisioning a Giants vs. Titans Superbowl at one point too, so I could be hopelessly chasing Windmills on this idea as well...let's hope so!]. But, I digress...

In response to Mr. Camarasa's Ira Levin inspired "theory" (who by the way also introduced us to Rosemary's Baby and The Stepford Wives), the Truth Think white coats bring us back to more acceptable modes of belief with the following:

quotes from New Scientist online linked below
From 1990 to 1994, the proportion of twin births in Linha São Pedro was 10%, compared to 1.8% for rest of the state of Rio Grande do Sul.

"Even though we could not find a definitive explanation for this higher incidence, the existence of other 'twin towns' around the world – most of them in remote isolated areas with high levels of inbreeding just as Linha São Pedro – shows that external influence is not needed for this to happen," geneticist Ursula Matte says.

Her team interviewed and conducted blood tests on 17 of the 22 pairs of twins living in Linha São Pedro, around half of which were identical twins.

Genealogical analysis showed a high recurrence of multiple births within families, as well as a high level of inbreeding within the community, suggesting the presence of genetic twinning factors.

The high level of inbreeding, combined with an absence of twins every other generation would suggest a recessive trait, Matte adds.

Inbreeding, where might we have also heard this type of behavior takes place...other than say, "isolated" and implied poverty stricken areas of the globe...? Dare I even say it? The Elite Bloodlines...the holiest of holy, the Ivory Towered Secret Commonwealth. I must be crazy...

Of any possible Teutonic origins? The article continues:

Although Camarasa argues that the high prevalence of blonde hair and blue eyes among the twins could be evidence of Mengele's "Aryanising" influence, Matte points out that the village was founded by German immigrants who often have such features.

"In addition, I don't think Mengele would have the knowledge, not to mention the means, to engender the rise in twin births in this community," she says. "It's noteworthy that twin births occurred there in almost every time period, even in the 1990s, so what kind of long-lasting manipulation could he have perpetrated?"

Twin births have been linked to exposure to toxic waste and increased use of IVF, but even now, says Matte, we don't fully understand the mechanisms involved, "and it is extremely hard for me to think that Mengele would have known it in the late 1960s," she says.

On the heels of this rather sordid bit of business, we stumble to the feet and cloak of Kaiser Permanente (Forever or Permanent KING even???) who made headlines TWICE this week...Once in the horrific story of Ervin Antonio Lupoe's desperate meltdown covered here (and involved not one but TWO sets of TWINS), as well as it's role in the Kalifornication Octuplet birth; also mentioned in the same article. All of which followed Elitist Nancy Pelosi's call to the masses for birth control to save the American economy...what a week, oh, and it's only half over. Happy Hump Day everyone!

I leave you with this...[PLEASE :Do not send me or comment with extra additions to this list unless it pertains to a particular thread or includes material which YOU would like to work on in conjunction with me. Thanks!]

"The Widow's Son"

In my previous article "Money, Masons, Murder?" which dealt with the recent murder/suicide involving Ervin Antonio Lupoe along with his wife and five children [note: there were two sets of twins not one as previously stated], the appearance of the Masonic distress code (handwritten at the end of an entirely typed explanation) caught my eye...Author Loren Coleman emailed me with the following, and likely connection:

...the LDS (Latter Day Saints) religion is rooted in Freemasonry and other occult practices. Symbolizing his false hope, Joe Smith's last words included the Masonic distress signal.

In his book exposing Freemasonry, William Morgan revealed how Masons signal for the aid of fellow Masons "in case of distress": "The sign is given by raising both hands and arms to the elbows, perpendicularly, one on each side of the head, the elbows forming a square. The words accompanying this sign, in case of distress, are, 'O Lord, my God! is there no help for the widow's son?'" (Morgan, p. 76).

Mormon bishop John D. Lee, who was executed for his part in the Mountain Meadows Massacre, wrote about Smith's giving the Masonic distress sign before dying, "Joseph left the door, sprang through the window, and cried out, 'Oh Lord, my God, is there no help for the widow's son!'" (Confessions of John D. Lee, reprint of 1880 ed., p. 153)

Less than one month after Joe Smith's death, the Mormon periodical Times and Seasons referred to Smith's giving, as his last words, the Masonic distress sign, " . . . with uplifted hands they gave such signs of distress as would have commanded the interposition and benevolence of Savages or Pagans. They were both Masons in good standing. . . . Joseph's last exclamation was 'O Lord my God!' " (Times and Seasons, Vol. 5, p. 585).

LDS "apostle" Heber C. Kimball also admitted that Joe Smith gave the Masonic distress sign just before dying, "Joseph, leaping the fatal window, gave the Masonic Signal of Distress." (Orson F. Whitney, Life of Heber C. Kimball an Apostle, the Father and Founder of the British Mission, Salt Lake City: The Kimball Family, 1888, p. 26).

In a related matter, although less widely publicized, a 24 year old man in Portland, Oregon indescriminately shot 9 people (the majority being High School exchange students) at an "under 21" nightclub known as "The Zone" on Saturday night. The name of the shooter was Erik S. Ayala, which Mr. Coleman points out is an anagram for Kaiser LA Ya...

Thanks to Loren Coleman for his invaluable insight in the reading of "Twilight" language of what we now refer to as The Secret Commonwealth (Ben Fairhall & Da Black Whole).

Money, Masonry and Murder? (Updated)

The bricks are coming down...

Another gruesome murder/suicide, this time in Los Angeles, California...a man apparently killed his wife and 5 young children before turning the weapon on himself. This would be the third such "financially" motivated event in California in the past 4 months.

In a note discovered by Police on the scene (which had apparently been faxed to a local TV station prior to the killings), the man (yet unidentified) described his wife and himself being terminated from their jobs as medical technicians with Kaiser Permanente...being told by a supervisor that they should have "blown their brains out", and in true Masonic gesture closes his murder/suicide letter by inquiring "Oh lord, my God, is there no hope for a WIDOW'S SON?" [Emphasis mine] writer Loren Coleman pointed out to me "The Masonic distress code"

"Kaiser Permanente is a consortium of three distinct groups of entities: the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and its regional operating organizations, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, and the Permanente Medical Groups."

The Widow's Son is Freemason code for Hiram Abiff, chief architect (i.e. "master mason") of Solomon's Temple, who was murdered by three jealous builders. However, the term "The Widow's Son" equally applies to Jesus Christ, Merlin, and Perceval--interestingly enough, who are all integral parts of the grail romances, particularly that of Robert de Boron's Le Roman du Graal.

The Widow's Son is he who is born without a father to raise him. He is often raised away from society, which gives him special powers unknown to most people. He is special, chosen by God to fulfil the divine plan which is still being sought out by Kabbalists.


The man has been identified as Ervin Antonio Lupoe (Lupe meaning WOLF), along with his wife Ana and five children (two of which were twin boys). ***EDIT***There were 2 sets of twins. Male and female.

Something is starting to stink...

The children's father is believed to have killed the children and their mother before calling 911 and contacting a local television station, KABC, by fax. He told dispatchers he found his family dead but told the station he had killed them, said Deputy Police Chief Kenneth Garner.

"There is a disconnect but we believe our suspect is the one who called," Garner said.

Here is a redacted text of the letter sent to KABC-TV by Ervin Lupoe.

"To whom it may concern:

"To start off about this tragic story, my name is Ervin Lupoe, my wife Ana Lupoe, my eldest daughter Brittney Lupoe-8yrs, my twin daughters Jaszmin, Jassely-5yrs, my twin boys Benjamin, Christian 2yrs 4mo.

"We worked at Kiaser (sic) Permanente West Los Angeles. My wife as a mammo. Tech. damn fine one ask everyone including the physicians. My new position as a Special procedural tech. My position was a fight to get, in fact had to file a grievance with the union for discrimination and HIPPA violations, then another administrator had to correct the DA (redacted) regarding the union procedures, the ADA who did this is, I truly believe is the reason, well not the whole reason, but added kindling to the fire, why we are dead, (redacted).

"Well my wife and I were being investigated for misrepresentation of our employment to an outside agency for the benefit to ourselves's, childcare. When after we had our initial interview on Dec. 19th. It seems our fat with the company had been decided on Dec. 22nd, yet on the 23rd, I was told by my administrator, (redacted) that, `You should not even had bothered to come to work today you should have blown your brains out.' After such admonishment from my administrator, assuming there had been a decision reached, I contacted my union rep. who stated goto HR and inform them of the incident, and to the union reps. knowledge there was no decision made.

"(redacted) the HR person handling our matter stated that there was no decision reached as of yet and that an outside agency was handling the matter. (redacted) stated to me that she had spoken to (redacted) and (redacted) concerning the statement made, but (redacted) completely denied making such a comment. I produced the names of the employees, and (redacted) reached me two days later stating (redacted) thought about the matter and did state (redacted) made the comment. Then (redacted) asked me how I would accept (redacted) apology, but not to answer just yet, think about it a couple days and let (redacted) know. I left the office and two days later my wife and I were terminated. Our administrator also stated that we would not be eligible for unemployment, my wife applied anyway.

"We returned Kiaser (sic) Permanente's property prior to leaving the facility, yet the company could not provide us with our license's so that we may look for other employment. I let the (redacted) of the facility know what was occurring yet she stated there was nothing she could do but refer us the HR or our union rep. We were told by (redacted) that we should have received our license's as they were mailed, yet we did not and when we attempted to reach her concerning the matter and unable to reach her, again we reached the assistant administrator of the facility who again stated the same to contact HR. We stated we have attempter (sic) but there was know response. Then when (redacted) reached us, she stated don't contact (redacted) ... any more concerning any problems.

"So after a horrendous ordeal my wife felt it better to end our lives and why leave our children in someone's else's hands, in addition it seems Kiaser Permanente want's us to kill ourselves and take our family with us. They did nothing to the manager who stated such, and did not attempt to assist us in the matter, knowing we have no job and 5 children under 8 years with no place to go. So here we are.
"Ervin Lupoe

"(Handwritten:) Oh Lord my God is there no hope for a widow's son!"

In related news, Octuplets were born at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center in California just yesterday...

The Question Returns?

The Joker...Kim "the Castrator" De Gelder (LEDGER)

This is all a bit unreal for me at the moment...What is going on with the Dark Knight? This is just beyond anything...DON'T forget my previous work in this area...Rorschach/The Question resonates HIGHLY with recent events; and "The Watchmen" movie is coming down fast.

Of course, Loren Coleman has been all over this "Copycat" scenario.

Decapitation, Death and the Damned

Belgian Creche Attacked by "Joker"

Dendermonde Joker

Joker Copycats

Bill Thuther at Conspiracy Grimoire does the two-step all over our latest Virgina Tech situation...

Kim De Gelder, aged 20, was arrested last Friday shortly after stabbing two babies and one of their carers to death in a gruesome attack that has stunned Belgium. He was dressed and apparently wearing make-up that gave him the appearance of the Batman character the Joker.

Investigators are examining whether the attack was timed to mark the first anniversary of the death of Heath Ledger, the actor who played the Joker in the film Batman, The Dark Knight.

It has emerged that when he was arrested, Mr De Gelder's only words were: "I have a question".

The words echo a scene in Batman: the Dark Knight when the Joker violently gatecrashes a party looking for a the fictional attorney general of Gotham City, Harvey Dent.

"I only have one question: where is Harvey Dent? I'll settle for his loved ones," says the character played by Ledger, before threatening a woman with a knife.

Patrick De Mey, the police officer who arrested Mr De Gelder, described the suspect as being in a passive and trance-like state.

"When I asked him to step off his bicycle and put his backpack on the ground he obeyed perfectly," he told the Gazet Van Antwerpen.

"But in answer to my questions, he clearly had no understanding. He continued to stare at me all the time with wide open eyes and a large grin on his face."

Mr De Gelder has been described by former schoolmates and work colleagues as a "film freak" and "movie addict".

Since his capture, he has not spoken and has gone on hunger strike.

He was reported to be on an intravenous drip in a medical facility in a prison in Bruges on Sunday night.

Ledger died of a drug overdose on Jan 22, 2008, a year and a day before Mr De Gelder is accused of carrying out the attack.

According to witness statements and police drawings, the suspect had painted his face white, blackened his eyes and had coloured his hair red.

His gruesome and bizarre garb prompted investigators to make the Joker comparison and make a link to another cult Goth film, The Crow, which inspired Ledger in his Batman role.

Belgium's Le Soir newspaper has even speculated on the significance of the fact that the name Gelder is an anagram for Ledger. [Our trade gone mainstream???]

The Fabeltjesland, or Storyland, creche in the town of Dendermonde where the attack took place has been permanently closed to prevent children and parents being "constantly confronted with the buildings where the attack occurred".

Corneel Vermeir, aged six months, Leon Garcia, nine months, and their carer Marita Blindeman, 54, were killed on Friday when the assailant entered the creche and began to slash at the children and their adult supervisers.

Sources have said that when Mr De Gelder was arrested he had the addresses of three other creches on his person.

The theory that more attacks were planned is supported by evidence that the suspect was armed with three knives, an axe and a replica pistol.

Mr De Gelder will be examined by three psychiatrists before a closed court hearing on Tuesday decides if he is mentally responsible for his actions.

The young man, who lived his whole life within three miles of the family home, in the Eksaarde district of Sinaai, has emerged as a troubled loner.

Former classmates at the Roman Catholic Sint Carolus school, in the town of Sint Niklaas, described him as a fan of Goth music who could sometimes behave oddly.

He was nicknamed Satan because of his long black hair.

Mr De Gelder studied to become a chemist's assistant and successfully completed his exams in 2006.

Virginia Tech Again...(Updated)

"What led to the attack is also a mystery: About seven other people who were in the coffee shop told police that the two hadn't been arguing before the attack. Beisecker said there hadn't been previous signs of trouble between them.

However, a Chinese-language blog was written earlier this month under the name Haiyang Zhu, and displaying the same photo of Zhu by authorities in Virginia. The author expressed frustration over stock losses and other problems in the blog, dated Jan. 7.

"Big stock losses. Recently I've been so frustrated I think only of killing someone or committing suicide," the posting reads."

Researcher Loren Coleman has responded with this summery of events:

The Black Mound city of the Virgin was shocked again last evening...The Watchmen Awaken?! It appears we may have come full circle with the decapitations as well. Today (Jan. 22nd) marks the 1 year Anniversary of Heath Ledger/Joker's death.

My previous work on Virgina Tech. Massacre of 2007 can be found at the following links:

A female graduate student at Virginia Tech was killed Wednesday night when a man she knew attacked her with a knife and
decapitated her, a school spokesman said.

Virginia Tech spokesman Mark Owczarski said Thursday that Xin Yang's killing was the first on the campus since April 16, 2007, when a shooter killed 32 people before turning a gun on himself.

Yang, 22, from Beijing, China, was killed at the Au Bon Pain (At The Good Bread aka PANERA or PAN era)restaurant in the Graduate Life Center at around 7 p.m., school spokesman Larry Hincker said in a written statement.

Campus police took Haiyang Zhu, 25, into custody at the scene. The Ningbo, China, native has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail at a local jail, Hincker said.

Zhu did not say anything to the arresting officers, said campus police Chief Wendell Flinchum.

The Prisoner Escapes

"I am not a number. I am a free man!"

The enigmatic Number Six of television's "The Prisoner", Patrick McGoohan, passed from the Matrix yesterday at the age of 80...One of the GREATEST shows ever to air on television.

Researcher Loren Coleman cites McGoohan for another, lesser known role here!

A wonderful article by James W. Whitehead entitled "The Prisoner: Pawns in the Village of Life" can be read here.

Prior to "The Prisoner," McGoohan starred in "Secret Agent" (also known as "Danger Man"), which debuted in 1964, and whose memorable theme song seemed to speak of the hazards facing the characters in both series ("They've given you a number, and taken away your name").

McGoohan's agent, Sharif Ali, said Wednesday that the actor was still active in Hollywood, with two offers for wide-release films on the table when he died. "The man was just cool," Ali said. "It was an honor to have him here and work with him. ... He was one of those actors, a real actor. He didn't have a lie."

Born in New York on March 19, 1928, McGoohan was raised in England and Ireland, where his family moved shortly after his birth. He had a busy stage career before moving to television, and won a London Drama Critics Award for playing the title role in the Henrik Ibsen play "Brand."

He married stage actress Joan Drummond in 1951. The oldest of their three daughters, Catherine, is also an actress.

After "Secret Agent"'s success," McGoohan pitched to producers the surreal and cerebral "The Prisoner" to give himself a challenge. McGoohan also wrote and directed several episodes of the series.

Although only 17 episodes were made, it became a cult favorite, and its cultural impact continues, as evident by his guest appearance playing Number Six in a 2000 episode of "The Simpsons."

A remake of the show is due to air in November of this year on AMC (American Movie Classics), and stars Sir Ian McKellen (as Number 2).

Anyone who has never watched the series should quickly digest as much as you can NOW!!!

In an odd twist, another TV Island dweller, Ricardo Montalban of television's "Fantasy Island" also passed away yesterday...

Montalban rose to prominence as one of the most visible Hispanic actors in post-war Hollywood in the 1950s and 1960s. But his star grew as he took on television roles as the mysterious host Mr. Roarke on the hit drama "Fantasy Island" and as Captain Kirk's archnemesis Khan Noonien Singh in "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan."

Hour of the Wolf

You gotta be kidding me...see yesterday's post "Bark at the Moon" here
and for all things Wolven check out Loren Coleman's follow-up over at his Cryptozoology sister site: or "When the Wolfbane Blooms" at Copycat Effect

Robert Roy Britt Editorial – Fri Jan 9, 12:56 pm ET

If skies are clear Saturday, go out at sunset and look for the giant moon rising in the east. It will be the biggest and brightest one of 2009, sure to wow even seasoned observers.
Earth, the moon and the sun are all bound together by gravity, which keeps us going around the sun and keeps the moon going around us as it goes through phases. The moon makes a trip around Earth every 29.5 days.

But the orbit is not a perfect circle. One portion is about 31,000 miles (50,000 km) closer to our planet than the farthest part, so the moon's apparent size in the sky changes. Saturday night (Jan. 10) the moon will be at perigee, the closest point to us on this orbit.

It will appear about 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during 2009, according to NASA. (A similar setup occurred in December, making that month's full moon the largest of 2008.)
High tides

Tides will be higher, too. Earth's oceans are pulled by the gravity of the moon and the sun. So when the moon is closer, tides are pulled higher. Scientists call these perigean tides, because they occur when the moon is at or near perigee. (The farthest point on the lunar orbit is called apogee.)

This month's full moon is known as the Wolf Moon from Native American folklore. The full moon's of each month are named. January's is also known as the Old Moon and the Snow Moon.
A full moon rises right around sunset, no matter where you are. That's because of the celestial mechanics that produce a full moon: The moon and the sun are on opposite sides of the Earth, so that sunlight hits the full face of the moon and bounces back to our eyes.

At moonrise, the moon will appear even larger than it will later in the night when it's higher in the sky. This is an illusion that scientists can't fully explain. Some think it has to do with our perception of things on the horizon vs. stuff overhead.

Try this trick, though: Using a pencil eraser or similar object held at arm's length, gauge the size of the moon when it's near the horizon and again later when it's higher up and seems smaller. You'll see that when compared to a fixed object, the moon will be the same size in both cases.

More lunacy

If you have other plans for Saturday night, take heart: You can see all this on each night surrounding the full moon, too, because the moon will be nearly full, rising earlier Friday night and later Sunday night.

Interestingly, because of the mechanics of all this, the moon is never truly 100 percent full. For that to happen, all three objects have to be in a perfect line, and when that rare circumstance occurs, there is a total eclipse of the moon.

A departing fact: The moon is moving away as you read this, by about 1.6 inches (4 centimeters) a year. Eventually this drift will force the moon to take 47 days to circle our world.

Bark at the Moon

The occult war that is being waged against humanity is certainly as old as time (or older), it has played itself out over and over throughout history, and it would seem that our own chapter in the Never ending story is likely to be written soon enough.

For those of you familiar with my work or many of the others investigating the symbolism/magical workings surrounding us will surely recognize the themes swirling across the globe over the past month and a half; with SIRIUS and the MOON being the two that in my mind have been most powerful.

If recent scientific accounts are accurate, the universe itself is screaming at us...and if that isn't enough to wake the dead, perhaps Hollywood can enlighten us further. The release of "Underworld III: Rise of the Lycans" might tell the entire tale...Consider the epic battle between the Vampires (Blood-lined elites) and the bestial slave race; the Werewolves (The useless eaters). Sound familiar? It should...and if the symbolism, real-world pressures aren't mounting and pushing US towards a similar war here on earth, I don't know what else is going on...Researcher, and our man in London, Ben Fairhall also has been picking up on the Wolfy scent in the air since the Mumbai Massacre of November 26th but with a much different result...

Hollywood trend for 2009? Or an agenda/programming being shoved down our throats? "Terminator 4: Salvation", "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" (with an epic final battle at the Pyramids of Giza), "Wolfman", "Twilight 2: New Moon", and the X-Men spin off "Wolverine".

What really triggered this reflection, however, was not movies but the recent comment from former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin made after the birth of her now infamous grandchild on December 27th (?). Ms. Palin's public statement was that she was "OVER THE MOON"...a phrase that, although I a familiar with, seemed oddly outdated to me. Researcher Goro Adachi's Mayan Palingenesis article covers the far reaching significance of Sarah Palin appearing on the world stage.

But was Palin's use of "OVER THE MOON" that antiquated? I thought so, until it dawned on me that it wasn't the first time I'd heard it recently. Back on November 14th, after the Indian Chandrayaan-1 probe touched down on the lunar surface officials stated that they were "OVER THE MOON" with their historic achievement. Some 12 days later India would again grab headlines as the Mumbai Massacre would infect us all, and ignite some of the most interesting research in recent memory [Loren Coleman here, and Ben Fairhall here]. The MOON seemed to have been playing a role in events there, as I covered in my own article "Helter Skelter Part I: Indian Style". I will quote Ben Fairhall's "Crimson King Part 1" now, as the relevance to my larger point will hopefully become apparent...

"Lunar continued to spin on her gyres, entraining bad behaviours in the minds of men. When G Madhaven Nair (Mid-Heaven and Air) 'gave the moon to India', all the tumblers fell into place, setting the cogs to whirr and the air over Mumbai to resound with the steady sound of clocks. When the curtain rose, when the full (new) moon hovered into place and the wolves were released, all the marionettes danced... But the moon does not belong to India, it belongs to Shiva (or She-va), from way before the world."

In an odd bit of foreshadowing or cosmic chicanery, stories of the 11 year old WEREWOLF of MUMBAI began hitting papers around November 20th, just six days before the real wolves were unleashed on the streets of India. Researchers at COLUMBIA University were treating the child who suffers from hypertrichosis with testosterone injections. "At the time of Pruthvirajs (Patil) birth, some villagers told his mother that she had given birth to a God, some thought that he was a supernatural creature, and some called him a bad omen due to his unique appearance." [of the 50 known cases worldwide a number of those suffering from the ailment live in India]

On December 12th, 2008 the spectacular Full MOON took center stage and virtually eclipsed the fact that it was Virgin of Guadaloupe Day. Not to be out shined, the Goddess manifested in her signature fashion which we refer to as the MARITIME signals :
  • The flooding of the MAGDALENA river in COLUMBIA

  • The flooding of Rome reached it's peak.

  • South American Playboy MAGazine (Rabbit associated with the MOON & Birth) is slammed by Vatican for "Virgin Maryesque" photo layout, the release of which coincided with the chiefly Catholic day of veneration.

It didn't end there however, on December 20th, French Yachtsman Yann Elies was rescued in off the coast of Western Australia (OZ), after an on board accident left him unable to physically continue his journey and on the verge of death, Mr. Elies as well as his rescuers publicly declared that he was "OVER THE MOON" to have been brought to safety.

Perhaps it is my own naivety as to the worldwide popularity of the phrase but when considered within the framework of the astrological and historic events that were also taking place during the same period, the words are actually feeding into the collective Unconsciousness.

Consider that December 21st, 2008 (see December 21st importance here) also marked the 40th Anniversary of the launch of the Apollo 8 mission, our countries first manned orbital flight to the MOON. It was several days later on Christmas EVE when the crew of Apollo 8 read 10 lines of GENESIS in a televised event [of note, a complaint was brought by atheist MADALYN Murray O'Hair (RABBIT) for this act]. A rather insignificant technical detail that occurred during the Apollo 8 mission has caught my attention...known as the "Unplanned manual realignment"...according to wikipedia:

Prior to the Dec. 25th return to Earth Astronaut James A. Lovell Jr. "used some otherwise idle time to do some navigational sightings, maneuvering the module to view various stars by using the computer keyboard. However, he accidentally erased some of the computer's memory, which caused the inertial measuring unit (IMU) to think the module was in the same relative position it had been in before lift-off and fire the thrusters to "correct" the module's attitude."

"Once the crew realized why the computer had changed the module's attitude, they realized they would have to re-enter data that would tell the computer its real position. It took Lovell ten minutes to figure out the right numbers, using the thrusters to get the stars Rigel and SIRIUS aligned, and another fifteen minutes to enter the corrected data into the computer."

It is here that we should begin to realign our focus to,bare with me.

The binary double star SIRIUS also has connections to the MOON and WOLVES (not unlike the character SIRIUS Black from Harry Potter)...In Chinese astronomy Sirius is known as the "Celestial Wolf", in Alaskan (Sarah Palin) Inuit culture "Moon Dog", and in Hawaii (Barack Obama) Sirius is called Ka'ulua and celebrated on the Winter Solstice (Dec. 21st 2008) as the "Queen of Heaven"....but perhaps the most fascinating connection to Sirius is with our recent point of focus SHIVA/SIVA. The Vedic Rudra of whom Mr. Fairhall has begun to invoke at the Daily Behemoth in his "Crimson King" series is represented as Mrgavyadha or the star Sirius!
