This has been a remarkable year for me, full of awesome events and experiences often in new and strange places. At fall last year I was baptized Greek Orthodox Christian at Mount Athos and the Koutloumousiou monastery in Macedonia, Greece. Accordingly I started this year at Mount Athos, in Greece. Eventually I left for Geneva in Switzerland to see my daughter close to there in the French alps. Destiny wanted me to visit father Ephraim and father Paisios at St. Anthony's Greek Orthodox monastery in Arizona, south of Phoenix in Florence. There I met Charles from San Diego, Will from California, and Michael from Siberia, and many other wonderful persons. God then led me back to France and eventually to Belgium where I spent summer at my cousin's place in Wallonia. Then I went to Sweden, where I stayed until the Lord called me back to the Koutloumousiou monastery at Mount Athos. I was directed out of the monastery by God's hand to the beautiful Greek city Thessaloniki. Thanks to the Akepa hospital in Thessaloniki, the Red Cross, and the Catholic Church, my journey eventually continued to Constantinople/Istanbul in Turkey, before I ended up in Stockholm, Sweden, from where I was sent here to Malmö, where I'm presently at in southern Sweden. It has been a fantastic and adventurous year. I want to thank all my friends for good cooperation and for having made this year both interesting and worthwhile. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. I wish a Happy New Year 2013 to everybody but especially to Stefan and Noemie, to Fotini, to Eleni and Maria, to Eric and Per, to Dimitris, John, and Adonis, to Patricia and Christian, and also to Serge with family. I will not forget to mention Jonas, Lena, and Mats, Elijah the Tishbite, and of course at the Koutloumousiou monastery - the Geront Christodolous, fr Gregoriou, fr Nikolau, fr Jacobos, fr Dionysios, fr Hilarion, fr Tarasius, fr Philoteou, fr Chrysostom, fr Mike, fr Gerasimus, fr Efthimie, fr Fotius, fr Joakim, fr Timothy, Oleg etc. There are many more I will remember in my prayers. I'm single for the moment, after a short first marriage with a Swedish woman some years ago, and a marriage with a Belgian woman which also ended up in divorce 2009. But apparently some women in Greece and also here in Sweden want to change my marital status. This year will be interesting and as I'm a Capricorn and with Venus in Scorpio, I'm actually not so much of a monk since I'm very interested in females, although my spiritual search. I'm Swedish but fluent in French and I love the Greek language. I have notions of other languages as well. Who knows what will happen and from where love will come in 2013? But I feel ready for it, and I'm sure 2013 will be a great year. I wish you all - followers, friends, and readers - a marvelous 2013 with abundant prosperity, excellent health, and much much love.

Via Disclose.tv: Were the final resting-places of the family and disciples of Jesus discovered 30 years ago and then hidden as part of a religious-political conspiracy? The archaeological controversy swirling around two Roma-era burial tombs in Jerusalem refuses to die. Indeed, it has become something of an ugly academic slugfest. In one corner stands the Israeli archaeological establishment represented by the Israel Antiquities Authority and Professor Amos Kloner of Bar-Ilan University, backed by various respected archaeologists and scholars. In the other stands Simcha Jacobovici, the filmmaker and self-styled "Naked Archaeologist", backed by another group of respected archaeologists and scholars. Jacobovici made a film and wrote a book about each of these burial sites. He dubbed the first one "The Jesus Family Tomb" based on the collection of names that seemed to be members of the family of Jesus. Jacobovici dubbed the other "The Resurrection Tomb", arguing that it held the remains of the early disciples and images from early Christian iconography.

"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth". ~ Genesis 1:28

Via Disclose.tv: First and foremost there's the Rare Earth Hypothesis (REH), the suggestion that the emergence of life was extremely improbable for a confluence of reasons. The theory essentially suggests that we hit the jackpot here on Earth. Instead of saying that we're nothing special or unique, the REH implies the exact opposite — that we are freakishly special and unique. What we see here on Earth in this solar system and in this part of the Galaxy may be a remarkable convergence of highly unlikely factors — factors that have resulted in a perfect storm of conditions suitable for the emergence of complex life. "One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the Earth abideth for ever". ~ Ecclesiastes 1:4

Via Yahoo! News: Former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said on Tuesday Italy would be forced to leave the euro zone unless the European Central Bank gets more powers to ensure lower borrowing costs. Berlusconi, who announced this month he will again lead his People of Freedom party (PDL) in a national election expected in February, said on a talk-show on state broadcaster RAI that the ECB should become a lender of last resort for the currency bloc. "If Germany doesn't accept that the ECB must be a real central bank, if interest rates don't come down, we will be forced to leave the euro and return to our own currency in order to be competitive", Berlusconi said in comments reported by Italian news agencies Ansa and Agi.

Via Disclose.tv: New dangerous cracks in the ground appear on our planet. This time, they have been reported in Spain. The Department of Emergency situations urgently requested the Geological Survey of Murcia to assess the cause of the "huge cracks in ground", which appeared after the recent heavy rains in the industrial park area "El Saladar", Totana, situated in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula. The cracks extend along the industrial park in the direction of the sport city "Valverde Reina". They have a length of more than 300 meters and a depth of more than two meters in some places. The Cracks appeared a couple of days ago and open up gradually reaching a width of 40 to 50 cm. According to europapress.es at the beginning of November, cracks appeared on top of a cliff at Cotillo, located at the northern end of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.

Elijah the Tishbite writes on his website - Two Olive Trees: "Almighty God has appointed Obama to lead America. He is a sign over the nation of America, which is appointed as an example of the evil firstfruits of the Earth which shall be judged in its DAY OF BURNING and CURSE". Elijah also writes concerning the lost continent Atlantis that it "was a godless nation of people like America which shall meet the same fate when a giant asteroid hits off its east coast near Virginia". In a vision Elijah tells how he "saw America sink under the surface of the sea after being hit by a large asteroid". Elijah says this will be God's judgment over America "for turning away from Almighty God's righteous ways under His commandments and for allowing itself to be corrupted by corrupt evil leaders from the White House on down". We should better be found as God's very elect chosen and faithful wherever we live.

I have been absent from blogging for a while, because I lived at the Koutloumousiou monastery at Mount Athos till yesterday, and there are no internet connections on the Holy Mountain. Mount Athos is an autonomous Greek peninsula around the size of Albania, but richer than Greece. No women are allowed there. So it's a very quiet, peaceful place, and perfect for meditation in the word of God. At the monastery we have the dogs - Bush and Tarzan - for company. The recolt of olives this year was huge - I filled bucket after bucket with big and beautiful olives. Well, it's the garden of Panagia, the All Holy Mother of God. Even if we Orthodox Christians don't believe in the immaculate conception like the Catholics, we hold Panagia as greater than the universe, since She gave birth to the Creator of the heavens and the worlds. I try to improve my Greek, but Greek is a difficult language indeed. It's important anyway since I have my roots in Greece and the Greeks are the Sons (Laos) of God (El) = Hellas. Christian Orthodox unity with the Catholics seems impossible today, not only because the dogmas of the Pope's supremacy and infallibility, but of course of the filioque doctrine which led to the great schism in 1054. That heresy started already in 318, in fact with Bishop Arius and was then confirmed in 784 in Frankfurt, which unfortunately diminishes Christ to half-God. We Orthodox Christians believe we don't know the essence of God, but His energies; the Son and Holy Spirit which emanates from His essence. The Catholics make the crisscrossing very backward and with open hands. Even if Rome accepts the position as coequal with the other Patriarchates - Jerusalem, Constantinople, Alexandria, and Antioch - thus renouncing it's supremacy and if Rome also backs from the filioque doctrine, the difference between Christian Orthodoxy today is still insurmontable. The reason for that is the Theosis doctrine. While we Orthodox Christians believe our way to salvation to become Sons of God is through God's uncreated energy, the Catholics believe God created the energy, which would make our deification impossible. That is the biggest difference between these religions today. But I personally still believe we all are brothers and pray that God's grace and illumination will spread through the whole Church. The Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Scriptures two centuries before Christ is very genuine and divinely inspired. And we sang the Psaltar psalms at the Church service which starts everyday at latest 03.00 am, and which continues for between 3 to 14 hours, depending on which Saints and Feasts are celebrated. With such voices no instruments are needed. The Old Testament was changed by the Jewish Masoretes in the 4th century AD, and that led Jerome to change the Old Latin Bible as well, and now later the Protestants unfortunately follow the Masoretes also, although they denied Jesus Christ. But Orthodox Christians keep the capital letters for He and Him, when we refer to the Lord. The veneration - not worship - of relics and icons is accepted in the Septuagint Bible, which also may explain why we only use the Septuagint in the Orthodox Church. Above the door to the Priest's entrance in my Church there are ten levels of beautiful icons and sophisticated decorations above the Priest's door at the Koutloumousiou monastery Church, Metamorphosis, dedicated to the transfiguration of Christ, Elijah, and Moses. The wall paintings of the Theotokos, Saints and early Martyrs, Paradise and Hell, the Zodiac etc are magnificent. I like it when the Priest visits the icons and the people at the service with the incense, thus manifesting the continuity and unbroken bond between all generations and we are always present united together, both dead and living, at the Church service. The New Testament is a divinely and most beautiful inspired comment to the Septuagint Bible, which is the eternal word of God. Presently I'm at Thessaloniki, which is a most beautiful city. I heard Barack Obama won the U.S. presidential election for a second term. Everything still belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ and He's in charge over His creation, so we should not worry about the U.S. election results anyway.

Via Disclose.tv: Orbiting a star that is visible to the naked eye, astronomers have discovered a planet twice the size of our own made largely out of diamond. The study — with Olivier Mousis at the Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planetologie in Toulose, France — estimates that at least a third of the planet's mass, the equivalent of about three Earth masses, could be diamond. Diamond planets have been spotted before but this is the first time one has been seen orbiting a sun-like star and studied in such detail.
Via Arutz Sheva: The Norwegian Nobel Committee has announced that the Peace Prize for 2012 will go to the European Union. "The union and its forerunners have for over six decades contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy, and human rights in Europe", said chairman Thorbjorn Jagland. "Over a 70-year period, Germany and France had fought three wars. Today war between Germany and France is unthinkable", Jagland said. "This shows how, through well-aimed efforts and by building up mutual confidence, historical enemies can become close partners". Well, the decision is in line with Bible prophecy, where the Soviet Union was the beast of the sea, and the United States, the beast of the Earth, which will occupy Israel, according to Revelation chapter 13. But the European Union still has great flaws, although Greece is called Egypt my people; Germany is called, the works of God's hands, and the lost tribes of Israel - many EU countries - are God's inheritance, according to Isaiah 19:25.

Via WND: As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues. Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992. Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: "There is no god except Allah". The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet. Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person’s rejection of all other gods. Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it. “There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached", Gabriel told WND. Gabriel told WND that a person wearing a ring with "There is no god except Allah", demonstrates the significance of Islam in his life. "Christians never use the statement", he pointed out. "By wearing the Shahada on jewelry, a person communicates that Allah is in control of all circumstances. Allah controls you; Allah is the one and only one". But isn't it strange then, that Obama has repeatedly insisted he is a Christian? Acts 4:12 states that there is salvation in no other name than the name of Jesus. The name of Jesus Christ is the "name which is above every name", according to Philippians 2:9. Jesus is the Father, according to John 14:9, the exact manifestation of God, according to Hebrews 1:3; God was manifest in the flesh, 1 Timothy 3:16. The biggest problem is not that Obama denies that Jesus Christ is the only God, though, but that Obama obviously is a "habitual liar" to use the vocabulary of Elijah the Tishbite. "Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen", Romans 9:5. Now everybody should understand what Obama meant when he told the Islamic audience in Cairo that Islam is part of his responsibility as President of the United States. "And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life", 1 John 5:20.
Via The European Union Times: The initial stage of unprecedented radio telescope activity has been officially opened in Australia. The project will explore the universe in search of new galaxies, black holes, planets, and even intelligent extraterrestrial life. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), has finalized the construction of a radio telescope at the Murchison Radio Astronomy Observatory, situated some 300 kilometers northeast of Geraldton, in Western Australia. The director of the CSIRO SKA project Brian Boyle said that the 36 dish Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) will "really push the boundaries of our knowledge of the physical laws in the universe". The search for extraterrestrial life is going to be "almost a parallel activity to all the survey work that’s being done", Boyle said.

Via Disclose.tv: Turkey has confirmed it is deploying more fighter jets to an airbase close to the border with Syria, amid artillery exchanges along its tense southeastern border with Syria. "Assad ... is only able to stand up with crutches", Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, once a close ally of Assad, told a meeting of his ruling AK Party, and added, "he will be finished when the crutches fall away". Erdogan, reacting to six consecutive days where shells fired from Syrian soil have landed on Turkish territory, has warned Ankara will not shrink from war if forced to act. But Ankara has also made clear it would be reluctant to mount any major operation on Syrian soil, and then only with international support. At least 25 additional F-16 fighter jets were deployed at Turkey's Diyarbakir air base late on Monday. Meanwhile President Bashar al-Assad of Syria held a meeting with his regime’s army leadership to discuss the possibility of a full general military mobilization to face the prospect of war with Turkey, according to a senior Syrian official speaking to WND.

Via The Swedish Wire: Bloomberg said Huawei Technologies Co, which has been shut out from a series of U.S. deals, will have fewer options to win American business after a House committee said the phone-equipment maker may enable Chinese spying. The news could effectively stymie the Chinese firms’ attempts to expand in the world’s largest telecoms markets and give a boost to rivals such as Sweden’s Ericsson. Amid a decline in demand in the global communications equipment market, Huawei previously this year overtook Ericsson to become the world's leading supplier of communications equipment by sales. "This puts an established intelligence community stamp on the idea that these are companies that pose a potential serious threat", Stewart Baker, a former U.S. Homeland Security Department official, said. "They are going to be treated more harshly than other multinationals for the foreseeable future". Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei on Monday "unequivocally" denied the congressional report that declared them a threat to American national security.

Via RIA Novosti: The North Korean military said on Tuesday that the U.S. mainland was within the strike range of its strategic missile forces, Xinhua reported citing North Korea’s official KCNA news agency as saying. "Strategic forces of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea [DPRK] have placed the U.S. forces on the Korean Peninsula, Japan, Guam, and even the U.S. mainland within its target range", KCNA quoted a spokesperson from DPRK’s National Defense Commission. The announcement comes in a wake of a report that South Korea has reached a new missile deal with the United States, allowing Seoul to develop longer-range ballistic missiles capable of striking all of North Korea with stronger warheads. In October 2006, North Korea became the world’s eighth nuclear power, conducting an underground nuclear weapons test. Although the country’s nuclear program and its development of long-range missile systems has been condemned by the international community, Pyongyang has vowed to continue its controversial missile development program. North Korea has already deployed a number of domestically-built missiles, including some capable of hitting the American territory of Guam in the Pacific, in addition to South Korea, and Japan. In April, North Korea launched its long-range Unha-3 rocket allegedly carrying a satellite on board. Although the rocket failed to put the satellite into orbit, the United States and its allies condemned the launch as a cover for developing intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Via The Local: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in an interview published Monday he has hired a legal team to establish whether he has a case to sue Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard for defamation. The Australian founder of the whistleblowing website says comments Gillard made in 2010, that the leaking of U.S. diplomatic cables was "illegal" and "grossly irresponsible", had hurt WikiLeaks' financial viability. "We are considering suing for defamation so I have hired lawyers in Sydney and they are investigating the different ways in which we can sue Gillard over this statement", Assange told Australian activist group GetUp in an interview. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since claiming asylum on June 19 in a bid to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces questioning over alleged sex crimes. He said the organization had not been convicted of breaking any laws yet, but that Gillard's comments had been used against WikiLeaks. "MasterCard Australia, in justifying why it has made a blockade preventing any Australian MasterCard holder from donating to WikiLeaks, used that statement by Julia Gillard as justification", Assange said. "So the effects of the statement are ongoing and they directly affect the financial viability of WikiLeaks", he added. Assange, who plans to run for the Australian Senate in elections due next year, denies the sex allegations and fears Sweden would extradite him to the United States, where his supporters say he could receive the death penalty. WikiLeaks deeply embarrassed the U.S. government in 2010 by publishing huge caches of confidential documents on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and more than 250.000 diplomatic cables from U.S. embassies around the world. Ecuador granted him asylum on August 16, but Britain has denied Assange safe passage out of the country. Assange again accused the Australian government of offering him little help - an allegation it rejects. "I haven't seen any member of the Australian embassy or consulate since I was in prison in 2010. And even then, all they did was bringing some notepads, pens, etc", Assange said.

Via Disclose.tv: An 11-year-old Russian boy, taking a stroll with his dog on Sopochnaya Cape in Taimir Peninsula, Siberia, stumbled upon a woolly carcass of a 16-year-old male mammoth that was possibly killed by humans tens of thousands of years ago. Scientists are now lauding the find as one of the best preserved carcasses ever found in history. Yevgeny Salinder, an ethnic Nenets boy, told his parents about the carcass, who informed polar explorers living on the Taimir Peninsula. Scientists soon reached the spot to examine the 1/2-ton carcass, which has scraps of fur, plenty of flesh, an ear, a tusk, some bones, and an intact reproductive organ. It took a week to dig the carcass out of the permafrost. The mammoth, which will be unofficially called Zhenya (the diminutive form of Russian name Yevgeny), is supposed to have died about 30.000 years ago and was between 15 and 16 years of age. Mammoths' average life expectancy is of 60 to 80 years. "This is the second best-preserved mammoth in history and the first find of such quality since 1901", said Alexei Tikhonov, a specialist with the Mammoth Committee of the Russian Academy of Sciences. In 1901, the first such well-preserved mammoth was discovered near Beryozovka River in Yakutia, he added. "Officially, the animal will be known as the Sopkarginsky mammoth", Tikhonov said. According to media reports, the mammoth carcass will be transported to the Krasnoyarsk region and from there, to researchers in Moscow. The carcass will be put on display at the Taimir Regional Studies Museum.

In the year to date, 4.474 people fleeing Syria's civil war arrived in Sweden, with 1.506 of those arriving in the past five weeks. Last year, 640 Syrians applied for asylum in Sweden. So far this year, a total of 29.713 people have sought protection in Sweden, a 48 percent increase compared to the same period last year. Turkey has fired into Syria for a fourth day after a Syrian mortar landed near a Turkish village, according to BBC News. Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan warned Syria not to make a "fatal mistake" by launching further attacks, according to France 24. Erdogan warned his country was "not far" from war with Syria as further cross-border skirmishes were reported. In a belligerent speech to a crowd in Istanbul, Erdogan warned the Assad government it would be making a fatal mistake if it picked a fight with Turkey.

Via Disclose.tv: NASA's Mars rover Curiosity is enjoying some nice, warm weather on the Red Planet — and spring hasn't even come to its landing site yet. Curiosity's onboard weather station, which is called the Remote Environment Monitoring Station (REMS), has measured air temperatures as high as 43 degrees Fahrenheit (6 degrees Celsius) in the afternoon. And temperatures have climbed above freezing during more than half of the Martian days, or sols, since REMS was turned on, scientists said. These measurements are a bit unexpected, since it's still late winter at Gale Crater, the spot 4.5 degrees south of the Martian equator where Curiosity touched down on Aug. 5. "That we are seeing temperatures this warm already during the day is a surprise and very interesting", Felipe Gómez, of the Centro de Astrobiología in Madrid, said in a statement. Curiosity's main goal is to determine if the Gale area is, or ever was, capable of supporting microbial life. Most researchers think present-day Mars is too dry and cold to host life as we know it, but they may have to rethink some of their assumptions if temperatures climb considerably through the spring and summer. "If this warm trend carries on into summer, we might even be able to foresee temperatures in the 20s [Celsius], and that would be really exciting from a habitability point of view", Gómez said. "In the daytimes, we could see temperatures high enough for liquid water on a regular basis. But it’s too soon to tell whether that will happen or whether these warm temperatures are just a blip". While Curiosity's days are relatively pleasant weather-wise, the same can't be said for the rover's nights. Air temperatures drop dramatically after the sun goes down, plunging as low as minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 70 Celsius) just before dawn, scientists said. Such big swings occur because the effects of solar heating are much more pronounced on Mars than they are on Earth. The Red Planet's surface is much drier, and its atmosphere is just 1 percent as thick as Earth's. REMS measurements also suggest that atmospheric pressure is on the rise at Gale Crater, researchers said. This information is in line with mission scientists' expectations. In winter, Mars gets cold enough for carbon dioxide at the poles to freeze, forming seasonal "dry ice" caps. Since carbon dioxide dominates the Red Planet's thin atmosphere, this freeze-out process causes pressures to vary from season to season. Models and data from previous missions had predicted that Curiosity would land when pressures were around their lowest. The rover's measurements have borne this out, rising from a daily average of around 730 pascals during Curiosity's first three weeks on Mars to about 750 pascals more recently, researchers said.

Via The Local: Two Swedish military agencies at the centre of a scandal over plans to help build a weapons factory in Saudi Arabia also secretly paid millions of kronor to a Russian arms expert for information relevant to the project, a new report has revealed. In March, Sveriges Radio (SR) revealed that the Swedish Defense Research Agency (Totalförsvarets forskningsinstitut - FOI) had created a shell company to oversee construction of a factory in Saudi Arabia for the maintenance and upgrade of anti-tank missile systems. The company was set up in order to avoid any direct ties between the project and the Swedish government and cash for starting the company was provided by the Swedish Military Intelligence and Security Service (Militära underrättelse- och säkerhetstjänsten – MUST). While a probe into the legality of the controversial plan, known as Project Simoom, was dropped in September, a new SR report on Wednesday revealed that FOI and MUST secretly paid a Russian weapons expert for information FOI needed in order to complete a study related to the construction of the factory. According to SR, experts at FOI needed help in their efforts to help provide Saudi Arabia with the information required for the country to develop a domestic arms industry. Through informal channels, the agency identified a Russian expert with ties to the Russian state who could provide the information FOI needed. It is nevertheless good news that Sweden has good ties with Russia, and of course Sweden should cooperate on Russia in all fields since there are common interests shared. The development of Saudi Arabia is in everybody's interest.

Via SHTF Plan: The USSR collapsed and the same fate might have been prepared for the USA. It is true America not is the Soviet Union, but Republics don't last forever, and will the dollar be able to survive a euro crash? General Petrov said: "Some of our people who fled to the U.S., and now live there on welfare, live better there unemployed than they would have lived in Russia even if they were employed". He continued: "The slave masters think that this situation in the U.S. is unacceptable, because even the slaves live relatively well there. So the United States is doomed too in this sense". General Petrov said. "Even if you’re the head of a mighty state and you don’t understand global politics and don’t understand the methods of global politics you’re still a hostage of the global mafia". He added, "The leadership of the USSR and the leadership of the USA carried out internal and external politics, but the global mafia carries out global politics".
Via Disclose.tv: There aren't many places intrepid Kiwi travelers haven't set foot on in this world and now they're moving on to others. A New Zealander following the travels of Nasa's Mars rover Curiosity has unearthed possible evidence of a Kiwi hiding on the red planet. Ned Walker, a New Zealander living in Australia, said he was surprised at the find, but it was unmistakable: "I have a huge interest in the Mars Curiosity Rover and I like to look at the raw images Nasa uploads onto its site each day from the rover's cameras. I was amazed to find in today's raw images what can only be described a Kiwi". Walker thought the "monumental find", would be of interest to all New Zealanders. The picture shows a shadow cast by a martian rock that looks like the very distinctive native New Zealand bird. The rover Curiosity landed on Mars in August so has only just started beaming images from the surface back to Earth.
Via Daily Press: Swedish photographer Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin’s controversial gay exhibition "Ecce Homo" is scheduled to open a gay pride parade in Belgrade on Wednesday. But it has brought bad blood among nationalists, who threaten to stop the festival, and the Serbian Orthodox Church expects that the government will stop the show. Authorities in Serbia are considering banning the gay rights parade and all other public gatherings in Belgrade this weekend. The "Ecce Homo" exhibition wants to insult the feelings of Christian believers and religious people. If Jesus Christ is shown in a homosexual context in Serbia, the police will certainly be very busy there. Not only is the exhibition a tasteless provocation, but the question is if the Serbian police force should be used to protect outrageous provocations on civilized society. And who will pay for keeping the police force busy, and the damage done?
Via The Swedish Wire: Bloomberg said Sweden’s krona is becoming the new Swiss franc for investors seeking higher interest rates in a growing economy that has a trade surplus and falling debt load. "The krona can go a lot further", John Taylor, the founder and chief executive officer of New York-based hedge fund FX Concepts LLC, told the news-bureau: "Sweden has the wind behind it because Bernanke is making the dollar go down and Europe keeps having these traumas". The krona is the best performer in a basket of developed-market peers since June, with a 3 percent advance, about twice that of the second-place Norwegian krone. Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt recently said that the krona’s value is "not a short- term phenomenon, it’s something we should get used to".

Via Los Angeles Times: If the Messiah descends from the Mount of Olives as foretold in the Bible, America's two biggest Christian broadcasters are well-positioned to cover it live thanks to recent acquisitions of adjacent Jerusalem studios on a hill overlooking the Old City. Texas-based Daystar Television Network already beams a 24-hour-a-day live webcam from its terrace. Not to be outdone, Costa Mesa-based Trinity Broadcasting Network last month bought the building next door. The dueling studios are part of an aggressive push by U.S. evangelical broadcasters seeking to gain a stronger foothold in the holy city. Their presence not only offers boasting rights with American viewers and contributors, but also — and more controversially — a platform for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to Jews in Israel.
Via The Local: A 59-year-old man who worked for more than 30 years at a packaging plant in southern Sweden has been fired for rolling his pants up while on the job. "I'm never setting my foot in there again. I've been forced out", Anders Sjöblom told the Aftonbladet newspaper. Sjöblom's bitterness comes after being unceremoniously sacked from his job at a packaging plant located in Skene in southern Sweden run by forestry giant Stora Enso where he has worked since 1974. The reason: he liked to work with his pant-legs rolled up. For most of Sjöblom's career with Stora Enso, the practice of rolling up his pants to let a little fresh air flow over his calves wasn't seen as a problem. "It's warm. And it's much easier to climb up and down on the annoying stairs where I work", he told the Dagens Arbete newspaper in September. However, long pants rolled up to just below the knee were not acceptable, Sjöblom learned. "I was so pissed off. At some point, someone has to take a stand". "It feels great to stand up for what you believe in", he said. Thumbs up for Anders Sjöblom.

Via Disclose.tv: For the first time, the legendary 2006 Russian documentary "Third Reich – Operation UFO" in its entirety, and fully translated into English, is available for free viewing. Many thanks to Irina Du Toit for the translation and the saucer people for the subtitles. The film explores the historical mysteries and rumours of a Nazi secret base in Antarctica, the 1947 flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd’s ill-fated "Operation Highjump" expedition, and the occult origins of Third Reich anti-gravity engines, flying discs and ancient Atlantean technologies viewed through the lens of perhaps the three most mysterious twentieth century German organisations of all: the "Thule Society", "Vril Society", and the "Ahnenerbe". One of the core themes of the film is the alleged existence of "Base 211", the legendary underground Nazi base in the Antarctica. Drawing upon the pre-war Nazi interest in Antarctica and the creation of "New Swabia"; the testimony of German U-Boat submarine commanders and the alleged disappearance of thousands of Nazi scientists and engineers at the end of the war, personnel that cannot be accounted for by the Vatican and Odessa "rat lines", or American "Operation Paperclip" activities. The film analyses the actual geo-physical possibilities of an underground base in Antarctica. The other core theme is the alleged existence of a Nazi flying saucer program and the many evidential strands that this area generates. From the supposed channeling of extraterrestrial engineering schematics by members of the German occult group "Thule Society" in the early part of the twentieth century to the "implosion engine" of Viktor Schauberger and its possible appropriation by the Third Reich. Bringing us to the the latter part of the twentieth century the documentary illustrates the many sightings of unknown crafts around the Antartic region and the theoretical basis for polar wormholes as entrance and exit points for visiting extraterrestrial spaceships and the possible involvement of HAARP, as well as asking why nearly all American Antarctic bases seem to be populated by agents of the National Security Agency and CIA. Like the study of any phenomena and/or events that exist at the edges of consensus reality, occupy imaginal realms and are subject to historical revisionism; the interface of myth and reality is a shifting mosaic of fact, speculation, disinformation and fantasy, or to use the phrase of head CIA counter-intelligence spook, James Jesus Angleton, we have entered a "wilderness of mirrors". Certainly there are elements in the documentary that give cause for concern such as the alleged "Special Bureau 13", the Nazi secret flying saucer research group and its similarity to the top secret government agency in the early eighties role playing game "Bureau 13: Stalking the Night Fantastic". Likewise, there is the lack of information on the existence of the US Navy destroyer "Murdoch" in the testimony recounted by pilot "John Sireson" in his description of the flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd's fleet (testimony taken from an interview by the late pioneering American researcher Leonard Stringfield). Equally, the testimony of Admiral Byrd that flying saucers attacked the "Operation Highjump" fleet is of historical record as is his testimony to Congress of enemies that have the ability to fly "pole to pole". Likewise, the creation of "New Swabia" is as much a historical fact as the "impossible" existence of the "Piri Reis" map. What sets this documentary apart from most others of its kind is the inclusion of high ranking Russian scientists and military personnel, and their testimony should not be discounted.
Via Newsmax: New York Post columnist Cindy Adams asserts that former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger predicted the end of the state of Israel within 10 years. Adams does not specify when or where Kissinger made that statement. But she writes: "Middle East horror. Democratic Party dissing Jerusalem. DC’s anti-Israel mentality. Obama, busy raising re-election funds, no time for beleaguered Netanyahu. The Oval Office attitude versus the Red Line. Iran’s oath to destroy our only friend in that part of the world". "Reported to me, Henry Kissinger has stated — and I quote the statement word for word: 'In 10 years, there will be no more Israel. I repeat: In 10 years, there will be no more Israel' ". Well, I stick to the New Testament, which states "all Israel shall be saved", according to Romans 11:26.
Via RT: A Transportation Security Agent (TSA) convicted of stealing more than $800.000 worth of goods from travelers said this type of theft is "commonplace" among airport security. Almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing from passengers since 2003. Pythias Brown, a former Transportation Security Administration officer at Newark Liberty International Airport, spent four years stealing everything he could from luggage and security checkpoints, including clothing, laptops, cameras, Nintendo Wiis, video games, and cash. Speaking publicly for the first time after being released after three years in prison, Brown told ABC News that he used the X-ray scanners to locate the most valuable items to snatch. "I could tell whether it was cameras or laptops or portable cameras or whatever kind of electronic was in the bag", he said. Brown often worked alone, screening luggage behind the ticket counters. He was frequently told the overhead surveillance cameras, installed to prevent theft, were not working. "It was so easy", he said. "I walked right out of the checkpoint with a Nintendo Wii in my hand. Nobody said a word". With more electronics than any one individual could need, Brown began to sell the stolen items on eBay. At the time of his arrest, he was selling 80 cameras, video games, and computers online. Brown said the theft was comparable to an addiction. "It was like being on drugs", he said. "I was like, 'What am I doing?' but the next day I was right back at it".

Via The Telegraph: The Assad regime in Syria brought about Muammar Gaddafi's death by providing France with the key intelligence which led to the operation that killed him, sources in Libya have claimed. French spies operating in Sirte, Gaddafi's last refuge, were able to set a trap for the Libyan dictator after obtaining his satellite telephone number from the Syrian government, they said. In what would amount to an extraordinary betrayal of one Middle East strongman by another, President Bashar al-Assad sold out his fellow tyrant in an act of self-preservation, a former senior intelligence official in Tripoli told the Daily Telegraph. With international attention switching from Libya to the mounting horrors in Syria, Mr Assad offered Paris the telephone number in exchange for an easing of French pressure on Damascus, according to Rami El Obeidi. "In exchange for this information, Assad had obtained a promise of a grace period from the French and less political pressure on the regime – which is what happened", Mr El Obeidi said.

Via The Swedish Wire: Ikea's catalog is printed in 198 million copies and looks almost the same in 27 languages and in 38 countries. With one big exception. In the Saudi Arabian version of the catalog almost all women have been erased, Swedish newspaper Metro said. Sweden's Minister of Trade Ewa Björling said the retouched images are a "sad example" of women oppression. "Women can not be retouched away in reality. If Saudi Arabia does not allow women to appear [in public] or work, they lose about half their intellectual capital", she told Metro. "These pictures are sad examples which show there is a long way to go in terms of equality between men and women in Saudi Arabia". Women's rights in Saudi Arabia are defined by Islam and tribal customs. Human Rights Watch said in a report that the Saudi guardianship system continues to treat women as minors. Under this discriminatory system, girls and women of all ages are forbidden from traveling, studying, or working without permission from their male guardians. Sweden is making more money per capita from export than the United States, China, Brazil, France, and Greece combined. The reason is that Swedish companies perfectly adapt to Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Communist, and Fascist countries without any restrictions whatsoever, or have any company policies on democracy or freedom, but making profit is the only goal. If you want to make money, there are no limits in our world, if you lack scruples.

Via Dayton Daily News A program that provides subsidized phone service to low-income individuals has nearly doubled in size in Ohio in the past year — now covering more than a million people. At the same time, federal officials say they’re reining in waste, fraud and abuse in the program. Just like there must be free health care for all citizens, and the education likewise should be free and equal for all children, so should of course telephone services be free too in the civilized world. The West is the leading part of the world, and capitalism is the best political system. However, even the sun has its spots, and if we cannot provide a good and sustainable society for all citizens, then capitalism, democracy, and freedom are of course of no value. Conservatism, yes, and with a massive social impact - one man, one vote - avoiding wars, and dependency upon private banks, which all should be nationalized. Constitutional Monarchy, Christianity, and Democracy, are the pillars upon which civilized society is defended by its military, preserved, and works efficiently, technology advances, and equality, justice, and liberty are allowed to thrive. If we allow private banks to plunder people, wars to plunder nations, religious freedom to destroy the world, schools to only educate the children of the rich, and only people with money to get adequate health care, and furthermore Presidents who were not born to rule, then we have failed as a generation. The West is powerful, and from the East comes wisdom, without which there would be no future.

Via BBC News: Pope Benedict XVI's former butler has entered no plea at the start of his trial in the Vatican on charges of aggravated theft. Paolo Gabriele, 46, admitted earlier to leaking confidential documents to expose "evil and corruption". "Seeing evil and corruption everywhere in the Church... I was sure that a shock, even a media one, would have been healthy to bring the Church back on the right track", he was quoted as saying in June. The court threw out some of the more sensitive evidence gathered in the course of the investigation. Saturday's session of the court dealt with procedural issues and the trial was adjourned until Tuesday. While technically Mr Gabriele faces up to four years in prison if found guilty, he could be pardoned by the Pope. Pope Benedict said after his former butler's arrest that the news had "brought sadness in my heart". On Saturday, the court ruled that the results of an investigation carried out by cardinals for the Pope would not be admitted as trial evidence, Reuters news agency reports. The trial will be based only on an investigation by a Vatican prosecutor and Vatican police. The chief judge said the court hoped to reach a verdict by the end of next week.
Via The European Union Times: Patriarch Kirill said the Orthodox Church did not intend to merge with the state but advised to stop copying western ways and values as this would mean "an eternal lagging behind". Speaking to Moscow State University students, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church blasted those who advocated the European way of development as, in his view "imitating and copying is always inferior to the original as it lacks the original beginning, the true authorship". "When you build a civilization on the foundation of imitation this means that you determine the development in such a way that it will always be dependent upon those who have given birth to the original and continues to do so", the Patriarch said. Kirill added that Russia had already known examples of "senseless and often aggressive westernization", but the true European way was not in copying, but in understanding one’s own European roots and return to these roots with understanding of all particular details in the cultural and historical environment. The Patriarch stressed that the European civilization was based on two cornerstones – Greco-Roman philosophical traditions and the Biblical Revelation. He then said that the Russian civilization, which is a direct heir to the Byzantine Empire, has managed to keep the tradition for centuries and is still viable.

Via Disclose.tv: There will be a 1 percent tax on billionaires around the world, and a tax on all currency trading in the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen, and the British pound sterling. The United Nations is at it again: finding new and "innovative" ways to create global taxes that would transfer hundreds of billions, and even trillions, of dollars from the rich nations of the world to poorer ones, in line with U.N.-directed economic, social, and environmental development. We can expect a new global tax on all financial transactions, including stock and bond trading, and trading in financial derivatives. New taxes on carbon emissions and on airline tickets are proposed. There will also be a "royalty" on all undersea mineral resources extracted more than 100 miles offshore of any nation’s territory. How to convince developed countries wracked by economic recession and spiraling levels of government debt is another issue, which the world organization may well end up trying to finesse. The world organization, and its constellation of funds, agencies, and programs, has been pushing "innovative financing" for nearly a decade.
Via The Local: Two 18-year-olds have been detained in connection with an explosion that damaged a Jewish community center in Malmö early Friday morning in an incident that has rekindled debate about the safety of Jews in Sweden's third largest city. The city's Jewish leaders expressed their shock and fear following the attack. Fred Kahn, head of the Jewish community in Malmö, said the attack reaffirms the view that the Jews in Malmö remain under threat and have suffered as a result. Lena Posner-Körösi, chair of the Official Council of Swedish Jewish Communities (Judiska centralrådet) explained that the Skåne County governing board has twice rejected applications by the Malmö Jewish community to install surveillance cameras on the street adjacent to the building that was attacked on Friday morning. Malmö's Social Democratic mayor Ilmar Reepalu, who has come under fire on numerous occasions for remarks interpreted as being anti-Semitic, condemned Friday's attack as "a criminal act". Despite the political posturing, Jewish community leader Kahn pointed out that one of the first calls he received Friday morning was from Reepalu. "The support we've received has been incredibly important. It's overwhelming for many of us", he told the local Skånska Dagbladet newspaper. However, Kahn remained at a loss as to why Jews in Malmö appear to be subject to more threats and violence than Jews elsewhere in the country. "More attacks are directed at Jews in Malmö. I haven't heard about it happening in other places in Sweden", he told the paper.

Via Disclose.tv: "The mummy of what appears to be an alien, dates back more than 2000 years and it seems it would be a humanoid", said a source at the Egyptian Antiquities Department, who provided details and photographs of the find but did so under condition of anonymity. The body of the perfectly preserved, carefully mummified alien was found buried in an ancient pyramid. The mysterious creature from between 150 and 160 centimeters was found by an archaeologist near Lahun when exploring a small pyramid near the Dynasty doceaba of Senusret II. Some online sources said that this is a species characterized by reptilian traits, such as the eyes, which are large and oval shaped. Inscriptions on the tomb of the mummy show that he was a counselor to the King and named Osirunet, meaning star or sent from heaven. The mummified body was buried with great respect and care, accompanied by a number of strange objects, which archaeological museum managers cannot identify. According to Egyptian sources, the alien mummy was discovered by Dr. Viktor Lubek, a Czechoslovakian citizen and retired professor of the University of Pennsylvania. Archaeologists located the hidden compartment while conducting an investigation into a small pyramid south of the main pyramid, Senusret II, which contains the Queen of the Pharaoh. At the site were also found some gold and clay mixtures covering the body, and traces of cloth linen like appearance; the skin covering the enigmatic being. Objects in the tomb include artifacts made of a synthetic type fabric that nobody could identify. No one has found similar elements in other Egyptian tombs, so the discovery is of great importance for current archaeology. The anonymous source which has obtained the information, also said that the discovery has caused great consternation among Egyptian officials, who want to keep it hidden until a plausible explanation is found for the strange mummy. The government has consulted a number of respected archaeologists, but to date none can explain the finding in ordinary terms. "The truth is, that every expert who has seen the mummy has concluded that it is not of earthly origin", said the source, and added, "there is a sense that this is an alien who somehow ended up advising an Egyptian King". But people in the government is moving away from that conclusion, which would support the new ideas that the ancient Egyptians had help from aliens in building their extraordinary civilization. Many Egyptians refuse to believe that their heritage came from outer space. Egypt is notorious as a country with a long Priestly tradition of magic, not only in Greek and Roman culture, but also in Jewish circles. Jesus Christ Himself knew and understood magic, and He grew up in Egypt. According to the Talmud, nine-tenths of the world's witchcraft had descended on Egypt. After all, God calls Egypt "my people" in Isaiah 19:25, when He says: "Blessed be Egypt my people".

Via What Would Tyler Durden Do?: In the wake of his divorce from Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise is distancing himself from Scientology and spends more time with non-Scientologist friends, because he feels Scientology has hurt him both personally and professionally. "Tom’s been leaning on friends who have different perspectives, getting advice on moving on from Katie as well as on everything he’s been going through with Scientology", an insider said. "He’s finally seeing that being such an advocate for Scientology hasn’t served him as well as he’d hoped — he’s gone through three divorces, and his public perception has sunk to an all-time low". Hopefully this is true because Tom Cruise is a genuinely nice guy by all accounts. Religion causes happiness and prosperity every day, but sadly enough also torment and death. When God manifested Himself in the person of Jesus Christ, we who once were far away from God were saved, became the Church, and got the Bible. The Jews unfortunately lost their Temple, Jerusalem, and Israel. But worst of all, the Jews lost the Bible - and all of it! "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children", Hosea 4:6. There is no wonder a terrible beast would come up out of the earth (a symbol for Israel, as the nations are symbolized with the sea), according to Revelation 13:11. The rejection of Christ and the New Testament - is not the sole reason for the sufferings of the Jews for two millenia. The real reason for all the sufferings and misfortunes of the Jews has rather to do with their rejection of the real Old Testament - the Septuagint (a translation in Greek basically from the older Hebrew Bible). Now the terrible and fraudulous Masoretic Text, creates havoc in the whole world to this day. There are many ugly ideologies, religions, and sects. Satan creates new ideologies and religions all the time, in order for humans to discriminate against women, torture animals, or go to war and kill fellow humans. Well, I'm sure Tom Cruise is smarter than that. Hopefully he will do the right thing and be baptized a Christian Orthodox.
