Bizarre footage has emerged, of a possible reptillian female, filmed on a popular american tv show. Paranormal Crucible explains that the reason Dr. Phil and the audience aren’t noticing this is that the Reptilian can cloak their appearance in front of others, but cannot deceive the camera or any sort of electronics.

Via The Local: Prime Minister Stefan Löfven's Social Democrat-led coalition has revealed its first budget proposal, listing plans to spend more than 20 billion kronor. The coalition, which also includes the Green Party, was formed after elections in Sweden in September. Key policies that the grouping has promised to commit money to include setting up more primary schools, lowering taxes for pensioners and improving the country's railways. Amid calls for stepped-up spending by European nations which can afford to do so, Sweden will now let its deficit rise to 2.2 percent of economic output, the highest level since 1996. Sweden has also seen falling prices that has sparked concern of a dangerous deflationary spiral setting in that could lead to a recession, but so far is still expected to grow 2.1 percent this year. The budget forecasts 3.0 percent growth next year. Sweden is one of the few nations that has room to take on more debt under European rules, and despite the increased deficit its debt ratio is still expected to dip to 40.2 percent next year. Social Democratic Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson put the blame for the increased deficit on unfunded tax cuts by her conservative predecessors rather than additional spending. The policies of the previous government, in power from 2006 until its election defeat this autumn, had resulted in "an empty coffer", Andersson said on Thursday. She added that it would be impossible to balance the budget before 2017. Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson stressed the importance of fighting youth unemployment and reducing class sizes in school. "The priorities are to reduce unemployment and increase employment, we have to reverse the negative trend in the Swedish school results, especially for the young children, but also invest more in our environment and to fight climate change", she said. She explained that the moves will be funded by tax increases. Expectations had built up around the announcement of defence spending figures, after the Swedish military's shortcomings were exposed during a fruitless hunt for a suspected foreign submarine off the Stockholm coast since last Friday. However, the government proposed to increase defense spending by 3.1 percent, less than the 4.3 percent rise in 2014 and below the overall public spending hike for next year of 3.7 percent. The coalition has also included the Left Party in some of its discussions and this has influenced a decision to put two billion kronor toward increasing the number of staff in elderly care homes and raising maintenance payments for single parents. In order for Stefan Löfven's coalition to remain in government, the budget must be passed by parliament and a rival center-right budget also being presented must be rejected.

Via Disclose.tv: UFO hunters have made a strange discovery in an image sent back by NASA’s Opportunity rover, revealing what appears to be a cross, surrounded by a circle, embedded in the otherworldly rock of Mars. As The Huffington Post notes, the Opportunity rover has been traversing the surface of Mars for the last decade. The odd, cross-shaped artifact was discovered in a photo captured with the rover’s microscopic imager camera on July 12. The picture itself is microscopic, meaning that the cross-in-circle shape depicted in it is minute. While The Huffington Post notes that it is possible that the cross-shaped formation was created either by natural processes or, inadvertently, by the rover itself, UFO Sightings Daily puts forth another set of theories explaining the martian cross. Postulating that the cross could well be either the minute fossil of a martian creature or a unique crystalline formation, they suggest that the structure may also be the result of micro technology. "It may be a fossil of a micro creature, but the ring around it makes it unlikely. It has very few similarities to crystal, but again the ring causes me to rule that one out, however micro technology might be the most likely. Ancient tech, especially small would be very useful to regulate plants, animals and other ecosystems to create a controlled environment. Sure Mars is dry and barren, however NASA Chief Charles Bolden said in the UK this week that ‘Mars did have life on it and may still’. Ancient micro tech would explain such an advanced world, far beyond our own". The strange cross is far from the first formation to catch the public’s attention since NASA’s rovers landed on Mars. As The Inquisitor previously noted, images returned by the Curiosity rover have revealed a series of bizarrely shaped rock formations, resembling objects as disparate as a traffic light and a ball. Another rock recently spotted by Curiosity appeared to resemble a shin bone, according to some observers, who regularly peruse the images returned from Mars by the rovers.

Via The Local: Sweden's military has announced that if it finds a suspect foreign vessel in the Stockholm archipelago, it is prepared to force it to the surface "with weapons if necessary". Battleships, minesweepers, helicopters and more than 200 troops are scouring an area about 30 to 60 kilometers from the Swedish capital after a "man-made" and foreign object was spotted in the waters. "The most important value of the operation - regardless of whether we find something -- is to send a very clear signal that Sweden and its armed forces are acting and are ready to act when we think this kind of activity is violating our borders", Supreme Commander General Sverker Göranson said. "Our aim now is to force whatever it is up to the surface... with armed force, if necessary", he added.

Via The Epoch Times: Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has threatened the West with his country’s 5.000 nuclear warheads. Putin has raised the specter of nuclear war for the third time in the past two months as he and Western countries such as the United States clash over the Ukraine conflict, which has been bringing to light other deep-seated animosity. Putin made his latest comments while en route to the annual Asia-Europe Meeting in Milan, a summit of 50 nations. "We hope that our partners will realize the recklessness of attempts to blackmail Russia, and will remember the risks that a spat between major nuclear powers means for strategic stability", Putin told Serbian newspaper Politika. "He’s again threatened the West with nuclear weapons", John Besemeres, a Russia expert at the ANU, told the Sydney Morning Herald. "It seems like a mastubatory fantasy he can’t go without".
