In this BIG BROTHER TV trailer from Australia, a bombed-out London Olympics stadium is clearly ‘subliminally’ shown.

Hidden in plain-sight.

Below is the commercial that the flash came from…which strangely is sports related and shows a coliseum being torn down.

“Keep your ears to the ground and your eyes to the sky….in the direction of the Olympics in London.”

Much Kudos to dutchsince for his incredible work:

This is profound and disturbing.  There was a “drill” planned for March 20, 2012 in Mexico for a 7.9M earthquake “simulation”…. also on a separate note.. Barack Obamas daughter was at the epicenter on spring break:  WTH is going on?!

PEPE GALLEGOSAs part of preparations for the next megasimulacro March 20, state authorities of Civil Protection (CP) performed exercise tests before a cabinet to simulate the response to a contingency situation, an earthquake measuring 7.9 degrees on the scale Richter.The Institute of Computer practiced evacuation, meeting in a meeting, and revisions in the infrastructure of the building, said the local unit.He explained that “in the hypothesis of an earthquake of Richter 7.9 °, this exercise was installed immediately the State Emergency Committee, which is made up of members of the three levels of government to the attention of an emergency.”He noted that the difference between an exercise and the mock cabinet, is that the former does not moving any resources, and the other is organized in a cabinet which simulates the response activity that integrate all the emergency.He noted that the State Emergency Committee is a unified coordination group in order to consolidate all operational elements relating to health and emergency management to the restoration of Strategic Services.”To meet the requirements of the affected population in case of a contingency emergency the State Committee is divided into 14 groups, which work in a coordinated and efficient to deal with adverse events,” he added.These guidelines were issued by the General Coordination of Civil Protection Department of the Interior in September last year, which is applied in countries on the issue of cutting-edge prevention against earthquakes, as in the case of Japan, “concluded the report of Civil Protection.

Newspaper La Voz del Norte - Journalism of Truth: The government of Chiapas is ready for the mega drill

The government of Chiapas is ready for the mega drill
================================================== ==============================
Gazette on 13 March, 2012 9:41:00

As part of the Third Meeting of Cabinet authorities of the 3 orders of
government are prepared to carry out the Mega Drill to
be held on March 20 at about 12 o'clock.
Having made the installation of the "State Committee
Emergencies, "Federal, State, municipal and
Civil Associations held the last meeting of Cabinet with the aim
provide a structure in the control and coordination of resources in case
of a contingency situation.
As a special guest at this workshop was attended by the
Director General of Centro seismic recording instrumentation and AC (CIRES)
Juan Manuel Espinosa Aranda who performed in conjunction with the working group
communications a presentation on the seismic alert system, which
collects data and is used to develop prevention schemes
case of earthquakes.
For the realization of this workshop were installed 14 sets of
work in each instance where a representative delegated and which will act as
link to meet the requirements for the completion of the Mega
Mock.
Through the State Emergency Committee was set up a coordination group
unified in order to consolidate all operational elements relating to
care and emergency management to restore
strategic services.
Note that the Mega Drill will be the perfect setting for
test the work of this committee, which will allow us to evaluate the
current status of the State Civil Protection System to meet a
contingency situation.
In this exercise involving staff from the Ministry of Defence
National Secretary of the Navy, Federal Police, Ministry of Communications
and Transport, Civil Aviation Directorate General, National
Telecommunications, Ministry of Infrastructure, Ministry of the Field,
Ministry of Health, Ministry of Environment and History Nature,

Secretary of Defense (william cohen under bill clinton — testified before congress) warning of this being a possibility…

http://www.defense.gov/Transcripts/Transcript.aspx?TranscriptID=674

Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week’s scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B’nai Brith.

A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we’ve learned in the intelligence community, we had something called — and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.

So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that’s why this is so important.

An engineer has come up with macabre rollercoaster concept where passengers are thrilled and then ‘killed’.

The chilling Euthanasia Coaster is a theoretical machine engineered to ‘humanely, with elegance and euphoria, take the life of a human being’.

It is designed to subject the rider to a series of unique experiences from euphoria to thrill and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness.

When travelling at 100m/s, the passenger would then pass away following a lack of oxygen reaching the brain.

The surreal structure is the brainchild of Lithuanian engineer Julijonas Urbonas.

Julijonas has been involved in the field of amusement park development since his childhood and describes himself as an architect and engineer whose work is ‘artistic and philosophical’.

He said: ‘Thanks to the marriage of the advanced cross-disciplinary research in space medicine, mechanical engineering, material technologies and, of course, gravity, the fatal journey is made pleasing, elegant and meaningful.

‘Celebrating the limits of the human body but also the liberation from the horizontal life, this ‘kinetic sculpture’ is in fact the ultimate roller coaster.’

Julijonas’ design is inspired by the words of John Allen, the former president of the famous ride maker, Philadelphia Toboggan Company.

Allen once said: ‘The ultimate roller coaster is built when you send out twenty-four people and they all come back dead.’

However, the surreal concept has been criticised by a leading anti-euthanasia organisation which sees the ‘imaginative’ coaster as something which could be easily abused.

Dr Peter Saunders from Care Not Killing said: ‘Whilst appreciating the artist’s sense of humour and light-heartedness, we also need to remember that the life a human being cannot ever be taken ‘humanely with elegance and euphoria’ and with this method the last sensation would more probably be one of overwhelming vertigo and fright.

‘Euthanasia rightly remains illegal because any law allowing it could so easily be abused.

‘Vulnerable people – the sick, elderly, disabled or depressed – would feel under pressure, whether real or imagined, to request early death.

‘Let’s hope that this imaginative method never becomes legal.’

He once claimed he’s the Son of God and the world is run by alien lizards, but the story of David Icke’s marriage breakdown is almost as weird

The audience at the theatre in Times Square, New York, sat in reverential silence as David Icke took the stage and made his great revelation.

Our planet, he declared, is secretly ruled by a race of reptile-like aliens.

These reptiles, malevolent in nature, sometimes ‘shape-shift’ into human form. The Queen, for example, is a reptilian, President Barack Obama another.

Bonkers, yes. But Icke’s show in November, with tickets costing $50 (£32) a head, was a sell-out, as have been most of the other dates on his world tour, which ends in Britain later this year.

One of the reasons Pamela Leigh Richards split up with David Icke, according to her, is that he became suspicious that she is a shape-shifting alienOne of the reasons Pamela Leigh Richards split up with David Icke, according to her, is that he became suspicious that she is a shape-shifting alien

Wherever he goes, thousands flock to see him. Twenty years after the famous TV interview on Wogan, when the once-respected sports commentator became a national laughing stock for saying he was the Son of God, Icke’s brand of loopiness has proved more resilient and lucrative than anyone could have guessed.

But there is one thing Icke has not yet talked about on his tour — and he does go on rather, sometimes for eight hours at a time — and that is the increasingly bitter divorce battle he is embroiled in with his second wife, Pamela Leigh Richards.

Or that one of the reasons they split up, according to Pamela, is that he became suspicious that she is a shape-shifting alien.

‘He can’t figure me out — he thinks I might be a reptilian,’ says Pamela.

‘Of course, I’m not. David and I had a deep connection, we were meant to be together, but he turned against me. I’ve been through utter bewilderment, pain, sorrow and heartbreak.’

So presumably Pamela thinks her husband is crazy, a fraud or is enjoying a great joke at the expense of gullible conspiracy theorists? Well, actually no.

Pamela — in all other respects an intelligent and articulate woman — also believes sinister forces lurk in dark corners.

So much so, that during the 11 years they spent together, she devotedly accompanied Icke on his travels, spreading the word.

'David and I had a deep connection, we were meant to be together, but he turned against me,' said Pamela ‘David and I had a deep connection, we were meant to be together, but he turned against me,’ said Pamela

Every marriage is unique, but surely there is none to match the barminess of the union between David Icke and Pamela Leigh Richards.

Pamela, 52, and the mother of a 24-year-old daughter from a previous marriage, met Icke in Jamaica in August 1997. It was six years after the interview on Wogan and Icke was still a national joke in Britain.

Pamela, the daughter of an American fighter pilot, worked in financial services and was attending a conference on the island. Icke was giving one of his talks at the same hotel and Pamela was intrigued enough to attend — and was mesmerised by what she heard.

‘You could have heard a pin drop when David spoke. I came away with the knowledge that the world is not what I thought it was and I learned about its reptilian aspect.

‘I went up to David afterwards to thank him, but at that time I was not romantically attracted to him.’

Three months later, they met on the Caribbean island of Aruba, where Icke was giving another talk at a conference and Pamela was on another business trip.

This encounter was, apparently, even more auspicious. Before his trip, Icke had visited a psychic who told him he was going to meet a lady from America who would ask him out to dinner and with whom he would be joined at the hip. She would be wearing a mauve gown.

Destined to be together (initially): soon after they met, Pamela and David were joint at the hipDestined to be together (initially): soon after they met, Pamela and David were joint at the hip

Pamela says she was that person (and never mind that the dress she was wearing was yellow).

‘The day before the talk, we passed each other by the pool of the hotel where he was speaking and we were both staying. He stopped and said hello,’ says Pamela.

‘We talked for a while and I could feel a strong connection beginning.

‘Later, when we got together, he told me he stopped because he thought: “Oh My God, this could be The One.”

‘The following day I saw him again and invited him to dinner with a few friends. Afterwards we walked along the pier and sat at the end of the walkway. ‘It was there that being joined at the hip and inseparable became as real as it gets.’

Icke had once predicted that the world would end in 1997, and was no doubt mightily relieved that his prediction did not come true, allowing him to pursue Pamela.

It was not imminent Armageddon but his own unusual domestic arrangements that provided the backdrop to his new romance.

For Icke was still married and living with his first wife, Linda, and their three children at the family home in Ryde on the Isle of Wight.

To make matters trickier, another woman, Deborah Shaw, had moved into the marital home in 1990.

It was reported that David, Linda and Deborah had a menage a trois for a while, but that Linda kicked out Deborah when she became pregnant with a daughter, Rebecca, by Icke.

Yet none of this seemingly troubled his new American girlfriend.

‘David told me all about Linda  and said that though he still lived at the family home, it was all over between them.’

Complicated relationship from the start: When Pamela met David he was already living with two other womenComplicated relationship from the start: When Pamela met David he was already living with two other women

So for two years, Pamela ‘commuted’ from her home in Phoenix, Arizona, to the Isle of Wight to be with Icke before moving permanently to the island.

You might imagine Icke’s wife might have harboured some, er, ‘negative thought patterns’ towards the attractive new blonde in her husband’s life, but Pamela says that was not the case. At least, not initially.

‘She was very kind to me at the beginning and even helped David and I find a flat.’

When Linda and David finally divorced, it wasn’t long before a new Mrs Icke had filled the vacancy.

On September 20, 2001, nine days after 9/11 — the lizards blew up the Twin Towers, according to Icke — Pamela and Icke were married in a simple ceremony at Newport county court on the Isle of Wight.

The wedding was attended by Icke’s three children from his marriage to Linda — his daughter Kerry and sons Jaymie and Gareth — and the wedding reception was in a local pub.

The pair settled happily enough into married life in Ryde, with Pamela remaining ever supportive of Icke’s increasingly bizarre theories — among them that Princess Diana was assassinated by a New World Order and that the Moon was constructed by aliens.

Yet when Icke wasn’t working on his conspiracy theories, he and Pamela led rather a conventional life, weirdly at odds with his dramatic pronouncements.

Often, they would stay in and watch TV — her husband’s favourite programmes were The Vicar of Dibley and Only Fools And Horses.

Icke’s other great passion, apart from saving mankind, is steam trains, and together the couple visited steam railways across Britain. Oh, and they also went hiking with his first wife, who remained his business manager.

Wherever Mr Icke goes, thousands flock to see him. His brand of loopiness has proved more resilient and lucrative than anyone could have guessedWherever Mr Icke goes, thousands flock to see him. His brand of loopiness has proved more resilient and lucrative than anyone could have guessed

‘The three of us got along very well,’ says Pamela.

‘David has a connection with Linda through his children. He is great company and has a really good sense of humour. I used to tell him he should become a stand-up comedian.’

Things started to go wrong in 2006 when Icke decided to restructure his expanding business ventures.

‘I had set up David’s website and got the whole thing going, but it was agreed I’d transfer my duties to his daughter Kerry,’ says Pamela.

‘We had a meeting with Linda and we agreed how money made from the business would be split.

‘I could tell Linda was getting upset about what was being discussed. The thing was, she had always been responsible for the business side of things and I don’t think she liked the new set-up.’

Tensions increased, she says, when a psychic whom Icke had consulted for advice began influencing him against Pamela.

‘She was crucial to what has happened. She told David I was out to take his business and separate him from his children. Everyone was against me — I was the target.’

To make matters worse, Pamela says Icke became suspicious that she was showing reptilian tendencies.

‘He’d say accusingly: “Your face has changed, you look different.” ’

Pamela says the fact that her father was a fighter pilot and she had grown up on air bases — Icke suspects the military to be under the control of reptilian forces — will have fuelled her husband’s fears.

Yet despite their deteriorating relationship, Pamela says she was still shocked when she learned, in typically unconventional style, that Icke wanted her out of his life.

Mr Icke has rejected the allegations made against him by Pamela Mr Icke has rejected the allegations made against him by Pamela

‘We were on tour — in Vancouver, I think — when the driver said to me out of the blue: “David wants you to go.” I was so shocked I felt as though I was having heart palpitations. There was no reason for it.

‘When we got to our hotel, my bag was chucked into the car — David had thrown my clothes into the bag.

‘The driver took me to the airport and I flew to Phoenix, where I stayed in the apartment I’d kept on, until David came some days later to get me. It happened several times — David just could not make up his mind.’

With the marriage under increasing strain, Pamela took off to Egypt for six months in 2007.

‘I was being hit by what I would call aggressive and attacking “thought forms,”’ she says.

‘There was fear all around. My heart and energy field was being crushed.’

When she returned to Icke in Ryde, they hoped they could work things out, but the rows became worse.

After a final argument in February 2008, she fled the marital home and moved back to Arizona.

‘Before I left, I was on my knees, crying, so exhausted from it all I couldn’t move. I said: “It’s over, I’ve got to go.”

‘When I walked out of the door I turned round and he was at the window, watching me.

‘He didn’t want me to go. Even then, he thought it could work between us. How could something so powerful end?’

That year, Icke filed for divorce, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’.

For the past three years, he and Pamela have been battling over the financial details of their divorce.

They have spoken only once, in January 2010, after Pamela suffered a fall and sustained a serious brain injury.

‘I was being hit by what I would call aggressive and attacking “thought forms…There was fear all around. My heart and energy field was being crushed’

She says her lawyer has instructed her not to disclose the size of the settlement she is seeking, but it is likely that Icke is a rich man.

His tour is a success, he has written 18 books, published in 20 countries and sells DVDs of his performances.

‘David is drawing this out, we can’t agree over the finances. He is controlling and angry — he has issues.’

David Icke did not respond to requests for a comment, but in an online blog one of his friends has written about the divorce battle between him and Pamela.

She says Pamela is demanding ‘immense amounts of money’ from her husband and that his first wife, Linda, and his children have been supportive of him.

Pamela, meanwhile, says she just wants to get on with her life.

‘I have learned that no matter how kind you can be to someone, or how loving you are to someone, if they choose to remain holding on to their own emotional stuff, you must love them and leave them.

‘I am unattached emotionally, though I care for him. I have always been an extreme optimist and peace is my desire. I just want the divorce settled so I can move on.’

Last night, Mr Icke rejected the allegations made against him by Pamela and refuted her version of events.

He pointed out that she had not made any allegations until it seemed money had become an issue for her.

A former Chinese official has come forward to reveal new evidence that extraterrestrials walk amongst the peoples of Earth. These beings are everywherefrom lowly factory workers to the highest echelons of industry and government.

 

Sun’s drawings of ETs that appear as humans [agoracosmopolitan.com]

Sun Shili, a former Chinese official, has come forward to reveal knowledge that extraterrestrials are on Earth.  He asserts the ETs can be found everywherefrom lowliest factory worker and farmer to the highest positions of industry and government.

And the Chinese people are listening.

 

The mysterious Xianyang Pyramid complex thought to be ancient ET base

Chinese culture more open to idea of ET races

The aging authoritarians that ran China from their seat of power in old Peking under Mao are all gone. The new China is much more open to the evidence of ETs in their culture and history.

A government-financed team is even now exploring a mysterious pyramid some researchers claim is an ancient, gigantic alien base. [Before It’s News: Alien Base Found At Chinese Pyramid]

 

Aerial view of Xianyang Pyramid complex revealing flat landing platform

But some of the power structure controlling China still carries vestiges of the bad old regime. Those elements fight against freedom of information, the Internet and even the freedom of private text messaging.

Yet those powers are being distracted as China’s economy is floundering and most of their time and energy is now spent on the growing problem of supporting a slumping economic system.

With China’s emerging economic woes the leaders’ main worry is forestalling potential civil unrest: millions of poor Chinese from the rural areas continue to flood industrialized cities seeking jobsjobs that are drying up.

Because China is in a state of fluxboth politically and economicallydecades-old restrictions designed to muzzle people like Sun Shili have loosened. And as China’s grip eases, truth, in all its facets, begins to shine through like sunlight peeking through turbulent storm clouds.

Like the truth about UFOs, extraterrestrials, and strange paranormal visitations.

Over the past two decades, UFO and paranormal investigatory organizations have sprung up in China like proverbial flowers after a rare desert downpour. The Chinese people accept the mysterious with open arms. They’ve always been interested in the odd, the bizarre, the unexplainable. Their ancient literature and textssome of the oldest in the world outside the ancient writings of Sumeria and Tibetare crammed with accounts of otherworldly visitors, amazing encounters with ETs and strange visitors suddenly appearing in remote Chinese villages.

 

An ancient scroll shows two beings in a craft flying over the clouds

The growth of these organizations is almost exponential, perhaps that’s not too surprising in a country with a population exceeding 1.3 billion people.

The Occidental versus Oriental approach

Today, China has more UFO organizations supported by real scientific organizations, universities and the general community, than any other nation on Earth.

Many of the organizations are now funded by the government that once suppressed them. Almost all fall under the banneror are associated withthe National Society of Extraterrestrial Studies (NASETS).

Directly supported and funded by the government, NASETS is something Chairman Mao would have frowned upon in his day.

The organization’s the exclusive domain of accredited engineers and scientists and one-third of NASETS members are also government employees. The rest hail from universities or industrial research centers.

Members must also hold Ph.D.s in their scientific or engineering field and have at least several peer-reviewed studies published about Unidentified Flying Objects or extraterrestrials.

 

UFO with lights on hovers above the building [Nationalufocenter.com]

Compare that approach to the subterfuge and misinformation the military-industrial-government complex in America and other Western countries regularly foist upon their hapless citizens.

Among the hundreds of accredited scientists working with NASETS, Sun Shili is one that promotes the idea that extraterrestrials are living and working among humans right now.

A retired foreign ministry official, Sun currently heads the respected Beijing UFO Research Society, a duly related arm of the all-encompassing NASETS.

 

Craft’s lights flare up before UFO shoots away [Nationalufocenter.com]

Close encounter changes Sun’s perspective on reality

Back in 1971, Sun witnessed a remarkable object hovering over rice fields in a remote region of China.

Working in the area to fulfill a government mission during Mao tse-Tung’s “Cultural revolution,” Sun spotted a brightly glowing daylight object that zoomed up and down in the sky.

He says at the time he assumed it was some sort of government monitoring devicealthough the technology driving the object was actually far beyond any country on Earthand it wasn’t until years later when he read of specific UFO encounters that he realized the object he saw was not manufactured by humans.

 

Record of an alien encounter – from an ancient scroll

 

Enlargement of writing – note inclusion of alien symbols

Sun’s viewpoint is not unique, it’s shared by many others.

Among those who agree with Sun is rocket scientist Shen Shituan. Shen’s the authoritative president of Beijing Aerospace University, a prestigious and powerful position. Shen is also an honorary diirector of the 50,000 member government-sponsored China UFO Research Association.

Shen stresses that all reports of ET contact to the association are important. “Some of these sightings are real, some are fake and with others its unclear. [Yet] all these phenomena are worth researching,” he told a Chinese television reporter.

You won’t hear that from NASA or your friendly, neighborhood United States Air Force.

 

Representation of UFO flying near China’s Great Wall

Sun and the UFO-ET research organizations in China believe that solving the ongoing UFO enigma might lead to forms of vastly advanced technologies including non-polluting, almost limitless energy.

The knowledge gleaned from contact might also lead to better farming techniques, material science applications and new methods of travel that are faster, safer and cheaper.

Sun claims he has also tracked down aliens posing as humans and they are embedded in society.

Abduction cases galvanize UFO community and Chinese press

Abductions occur in China as they do in every other country. One of the best known cases of alien abduction occurred during 1994.

In the U.S., authorities treat abductees as kooks and crackpots.

 

Disc-shaped flying saucer similar to type that abducted Meng Zhao Guo

The case of Meng Zhao Guo

One of the best known cases of alien abduction occurred during 1994. A young logger named Meng Zhaoguo spotted something unusual land near a patch of woods. He and several of his co-workers went to investigate it. As is often the case, witnesses to an ET craft landing think it’s a small airplane in trouble that made an emergency landing.

Meng, from the village of Wuchang in Heilongjiang province, left the Red Flag logging camp with two co-workers and together they made their way to Mount Phoenix where the craft appeared to go down.

What happened next is eerily similar to the famous Brazilian case that made world headlines years before Meng was born. Except unlike the Brazilian case, the young Chinese had witnesses to his abduction.

After being paralyzed with a powerful light beam, Meng was transported into the craft and met by aliens. At one point during the lengthy encounter a naked female alien with humanlike qualities allegedly had sexual intercourse with him. Meng described her as very human, but almost 10-feet tall. She also had six-fingered hands.

About nine years later, during September 2003, a UFO researcher headquartered in Beijing oversaw a battery of tests on Meng. He had the logger undergo hypnosis, lie detector tests, police interrogations and psychological exams. A medical doctor anlyzed scars that Meng claimed were left by alien probes when the creatures performed medical tests on him during the abduction.

The final verdict: Meng was telling the truth.

All the experts concurred the man had undergone a harrowing experience that tallied with the physical evidence and state of his psyche. Even the medical doctor admitted that the scars were not the result of a normal injury or any surgery known.

 

Chinese radar routinely tracks UFOs making impossible 90⁰ turns

The case of Cao Gong

Five years after Meng’s abduction by occupents of a UFO near his logging camp, a middle-aged man named Cao Gong was abducted in Beijing. While he was not enticed into sex with any of the aliens, they did transport him to a far away Chinese city, Qinhuangdao. He described the craft as a classic disc-shaped flying saucer.

Cao testified that the ETs “looked like humans but had large hands and were very pale.”

What interested researchers most about Cao’s abduction experience was his claim that while aboard the craft he met a Chinese girl who told him she was from Qinhuangdao. He described the girl as a 13-year old.

Formal investigation of the case began about eight months after the incident, during the summer of 2000. Once again a battery of experts and tests seemed to prove an abductee’s story true. Cao’s testimony was also given weight because he was a serious educator and the principal of a well-known private school in a suburb of Beijing.

Cao told investigators that the girl and he had a lengthy conversation. She told him why she was there and claimed that “The aliens cured her disease in the flying saucer.”

The lead researcher on the Cao case, Zhang Jingping, had the Tangshan Bureau of Public Security sketch artists create a picture of the girl based on the principal’s detailed description. Using computer-imaging they reworked the image until Cao confirmed it looked exactly like her.

Then an adventure began like no other in the annals of UFO investigations. Rounding up Beijing University students as assistants, Zhang set off in November 2002 for Qinhuangdaoa city with a population of 400,000. The task seemed next to impossibe: find a teenage girl in a city of hundreds of thousands with nothing more than a computer-generated photo.

They found her.

Of course, by then she was 15, two years after the abduction. With the permission of state authorities, Zhang brought the girl back to Beijing. There he arranged a meeting between her and Cao. Upon meeting her, the educator confirmed she was the girl he met aboard the flying saucer.

The girl remembered him too and confirmed she had been very ill and the aliens on the craft cured her of her sickness. She said she was glad to meet Cao again. The investigators were both thrilled and amazed.

This major case is still under investigation.

Although a book is due out in China about the remarkable Cao case, several university studies have already been published about it.

Meanwhile, the authorities and media in America and Europe completely ignore it.

All over America today, desperate people are doing desperate things.  As the economy continues to crumble, the American people are starting to become very frustrated.  Millions have lost their homes and millions have lost their jobs.


As hopelessness and despair rise, an increasing number of Americans are turning to crime or are lashing out in unpredictable ways.  Many parts of America are rapidly turning into lawless hellholes.  In some of the areas that have been the hardest hit by the declining economy, police forces are being severely cut back and desperate criminals are being given a lot of freedom to roam.  In fact, in some major cities (such as Oakland, California), the police have announced that there are certain types of crime that they will not even respond to any more.  For a couple of decades, crime had been steadily declining in the United States, but now we are seeing very disturbing reports from all over the nation of desperate people doing desperate things as they scramble to survive or as they vent their frustrations.  If the examples that you are about to read are any indication, then America is headed down a very dark path.

Today, there are a whole lot of young people that feel as though all hope is gone.  Less than 30 percent of all teens had a job this summer.  Only 14 percent of Americans that are 28 or 29 years old are optimistic about their financial futures.

As Gerald Celente always says, when people lose everything that they have, they tend to lose it.

The very fabric of American society is starting to come apart, and it is frightening to even think about what is going to happen if the economy gets even worse.

The following are 20 examples of desperate people doing desperate things in America….

#1 As the price of gold has risen to unprecedented heights, thieves have taken notice.  This summer there has been an epidemic of gold robberies in the city of Los Angeles.  Store owners have felt forced to significantly beef us security.  In fact, store owners have added so much security that at this point “parts of downtown Los Angeles now look more like a militarized zone than a commercial corridor.”

But it is not just Los Angeles that is having a major problem with gold robberies.  The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Thomas Watkins….

In Oakland, police say dozens of women have had gold necklaces yanked from their necks on the street. More than 100 similar thefts have been reported in Los Angeles, a rash of robberies is taking place in St. Paul, Minn., and police in Phoenix say muggers chatted up high school girls then ripped their gold necklaces from them.

“We’ve never seen this,” said Oakland police Sgt. Holly Joshi.

#2 When the level of trust in society starts declining significantly, people start becoming very paranoid.  And when people feel constantly threatened, they tend to lash out in unusual ways.  For example, one man wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey actually smuggled a taser into a recent game between the Cowboys and the New York Jets and started zapping people with it.

#3 When people become truly desperate, they also tend to become highly unpredictable.  Just consider what Justino Sanchez Diaz did recently during a family dinner….

Before the family gathered for dinner, Sanchez-Diaz soaked the walls of the dining room in gasoline and set cans of gas under the furniture. And when the 13 members of the family sat down to eat, the man came out with a can of kerosene and splashed it all over everyone, then set them on fire with a blowtorch.

#4 When desperation spreads throughout a society, you literally do not know who you can trust.  Right now identity theft in the United States is at epidemic levels and it is getting worse.  Every time you give someone your information now, there is a chance that your identity could be compromised.  Just consider the following example from the state of Texas….

If you have a mind sick enough to rip off desperately ill people, you probably think to yourself, “Cancer patients — hey, they may die soon, so what’ll they care?”

Houston police say Shantel Moore, 29, apparently had that kind of coldhearted and inhumane logic. The Stafford woman worked for Methodist Hospital in Houston, and cops say she stole identity information from cancer patients and used it to get tons of payday loan money.

#5 When thieves get desperate, they also tend to become very bold.  A reader named Mark left the following comment on one of my recent articles….

Some tweekers drove up last week looking for scrap metal and one was out of their truck and heading to the shop when I came out of the house. It used to be that strangers would not even cross our bridge or get out of their car wondering about what the dogs would do. Times are changing and not for the better.

#6 In some areas of the country, desperate people are not just searching for scrap metal.  As one reader shared recently, there are some parts of the U.S. that are literally being transformed into hellholes by hordes of desperate people….

Here, in the California desert, many vacant houses are being taken over. Fixtures are being ripped out and sold as scrap. Trench latrines are being dug in backyards and water is being pilfered from neighboring pools and hoses. While most of these folks are simply trying to keep a roof over their heads (while they keep their heads down), many are also setting up meth labs and in-door marijuana grows.

I can see the eventual day when the total breakdown of the economy and our society will drive thousands from the cities. A lot of those will be looking for ‘opportunities’.

As sad as it is, if you’re not one of the most unfortunate, it’s time to prepare a defense for your goods, family and self. You are going to be viewed as wealthy, no matter how poor you feel, by someone with nothing left to lose.

Do not rely on police or government authorities. We all saw how that went in New Orleans. Be ready as an individual family unit.

#7 Sadly, family units all over the country are breaking down.  The hearts of parents have become very cold.  Some people are so desperate that they are even trying to sell their own babies.  For example, one grandmother in Florida has been accused of trying to sell her newborn grandson for $75,000.

In another incident, a Vancouver, Washington woman has been charged with trying to sell her newborn baby in front of a Taco Bell.  She was only trying to get somewhere between $500 and $5000 for her baby.

#8 What some parents are doing to their children is absolutely horrifying.  If you have a weak stomach, you may not want to read this one.  In Louisiana recently, a 30-year-old man decapitated his 7-year-old son with a meat cleaver and left his head on the side of the road.  What made this crime even more shocking is the fact that his son was suffering from cerebral palsy and was confined to a wheelchair.  Reportedly the man had gotten “tired of taking care” of the young child.  The following is an excerpt from a Daily Mail report about this horrible crime….

A father has admitted to chopping his son’s head off with a meat cleaver and leaving it in the roadside outside his home so that the child’s mother would see it.

Keep in mind that the father and son had not had a fight.  Rather, the father had just “gotten tired” of taking care of the son.

#9 But it isn’t just parents that are becoming cold-hearted.  In Georgia recently, a 14-year-old teen stabbed his grandmother and his great-grandmother with a sword.  The 77-year-old great grandmother is dead, but it looks like the grandmother is going to be okay.

#10 All over the nation, there are reports of kids killing their parents.  A 21-year-old man in the Chicago area is accused of killing his father with a weed trimmer while his father was sleeping in bed.

#11 In one of the most famous cases of parental murder this year, a 17-year-old Florida teen killed his parents with a hammer, hid their bodies in the master bedroom, and then invited dozens of people over for a massive house party.

Did this kind of stuff happen in America 50 or 60 years ago?

#12 Not all desperate people are committing crimes of violence.  In fact, some desperate Americans are now purposely committing crimes just so that they can be arrested and receive free medical care.

Yes, you read that correctly.  There are 50 million Americans without health insurance and some of them are now purposely breaking the law so that they can go to prison and receive the care that they need.  Just consider the following example from an article in the Gaston Gazette….

James Richard Verone woke up June 9 with a sense of anticipation.

He took a shower.

Ironed his shirt.

Hailed a cab.

Then robbed a bank.

He wasn’t especially nervous. If anything, Verone said he was excited to finally execute his plan to gain access to free medical care.

#13 Millions of other desperate Americans are not lashing out or committing crimes at all.  Instead, they are just quietly suffering.  A reader named Richard recently left a comment in which he shared the desperation that he encountered during a recent trip to the beach….

I was at the beach today, it was almost dark. I watched as a well dressed lady in her 50′s walked onto the public access deck and laid down her things. She looked around to see if she was being observed, felt safe enough to proceed with her shameful task and then she pulled out several small plastic bags. Quickly she went through the trash can and began to remove anything of value, especially aluminum drink cans. That is when I made my way to her. At first she seemed embarrassed, but after I assured her that I sold scrap metal sometimes for extra money, she seemed relieved. She then released a pent up storm of sorrow and hurt as she spoke of her shame and humiliation.

She had recently lost her husband of 32 years and was all alone. She lived in a home she couldn’t afford and was about to lose. Attempts to sell brought only discouragement and despair. “Soon” she said, “I will be homeless.” She said the cans were her insurance, her only means of real survival, since she had already run out of unemployment money. When I tried to offer to help in some way, she suddenly shut me down and refused any help. I told her she wasn’t alone and prayed with her. It certainly made the beach a sad place to be. In the coming months I feel we will all see this same scene played out over and over.

#14 Other Americans have become so desperate that they have given up completely.  The following tragic example is from an article posted on MSN Money….

On the morning she realized her husband and son would learn the family was losing their house, Carlene Balderrama, 53, faxed a note to the mortgage company, then went to the basement and shot herself.

“I hope you’re more compassionate with my husband than you were with me,” she wrote in a suicide note left for the company.

#15 When people get desperate, violence tends to increase.  We are starting to see shocking examples of this all over the country.  For example, at least 42 people were hit by gunfire in New York City over the Labor Day weekend.

Another disturbing thing that we are seeing is the trend toward mob violence.  Previously, I have written about the epidemic of “flash mob” crimes that we are now seeing all over the nation.  When large groups of people start banding together to commit violent crimes, that is a very disturbing sign.

#16 When criminals get desperate, they don’t care who they attack and they will take everything from you that they can.  For example, three young thugs in the Bronx recently beat the living daylights out of a 64-year-old man and took his wallet, his cellphone and even his Bible.

#17 If you are attacked, are you going to call the police?  Are you sure that they can be trusted?  Even police officers are committing desperate acts these days.  Just check out what one police officer in Chicago is charged with doing….

A Chicago Police officer stole $50,000 from his ailing elderly father to pay off his bills and gambling debts and unsuccessfully attempted to swipe his dad’s retirement savings by impersonating him

#18 In the old days, thieves would usually only focus on items of high value.  But these days it seems like there is nothing that they will not steal.  There have been reports coming in from all over America of thieves stealing air conditioners, drain covers, hair extensions and even embalming fluid.

#19 When people get desperate, they will often do things that they never even imagined that they would be willing to do.  In Utah recently, an unemployed 28-year-old man starting running advertisements in which he actually offered to serve as “human prey” for hunters for the bargain price of $10,000.  For an additional $2,000, he said that he would be willing to allow hunters to “hunt” him down while running around naked.

#20 When criminals become desperate, they often lose all common sense.  In the San Diego area recently, one desperate thief actually tried to rob a 7-11 convenience store while dressed in a Gumby costume.  Apparently the clerk thought it was a prank, so the thief tried to pull a weapon but was unable to do so because the costume was too awkward.  Police are still searching for the suspect, who is described as being very tall, very green and very thin.

America is quickly becoming a lawless place.  Yes, authorities in many areas will attempt to crack down, but what are they going to do when millions of people all start doing desperate things all at once?

A reader identified as El Pollo de Oro recently left a comment in which he summed up the direction that he thinks this country is headed….

The Banana Republic of America, the Third World cesspool that used to be the United States, is a very violent place, but the violence is going to get much, much worse. If the BRA is this dangerous and unstable now, what is it going to be like when our terrible economy becomes even worse and unemployment becomes even higher? It won’t be pretty. As Gerald Celente says, get ready for a lot of violence. We’ll continue to see acts of thuggery for the sake of thuggery (flash mobs), but most of the violence will be profit-motivated: drug violence (hola Sinaloa Cartel, hola Los Zeta y la Familia Michoacana), kidnapping, carjacking, home invasions, armed robbery in broad daylight. Today’s unemployed IT worker is tomorrow’s kidnapper; today’s unemployed construction worker is tomorrow’s drug trafficker or carjacker. The former USA is now a Third World hellhole, and the BRA will have all the violence, poverty, squalor and crime that Third World hellholes are known for.

America used to be the envy of the world.

Now, much of the rest of the world is watching our decline in horror.

When a complete economic collapse finally occurs, what is this country going to look like?  Will it be an all-out struggle for survival, or will we be able to handle ourselves fairly well like we did during the Great Depression?

One thing is for sure, this nation is headed in the wrong direction.

So what is the solution to our problems?

One group in Massachusetts thinks that they know what the problem is.  Amazingly, they are actually pushing really hard to have the Pledge of Allegiance permanently banned from all public school classrooms in the state.

Apparently the group believes that the Pledge of Allegiance has “no educational value” and that it places “unnecessary pressure” on kids.

This is yet another example of how divided our country has become.  We are constantly fighting over really stupid stuff, and meanwhile our nation is rapidly going down the toilet.

Look, our economy is going to get even worse and tens of millions of hurting Americans are going to become even more frustrated.

Something desperately needs to be done to turn this country around.

Rising greenhouse emissions could tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report

It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.

Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.

This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by a Nasa-affiliated scientist and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University that, while considered unlikely, they say could play out were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future.

Shawn Domagal-Goldman of Nasa’s Planetary Science Division and his colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity “prepare for actual contact“.

In their report, Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis, the researchers divide alien contacts into three broad categories: beneficial, neutral or harmful.

Beneficial encounters ranged from the mere detection of extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI), for example through the interception of alien broadcasts, to contact with cooperative organisms that help us advance our knowledge and solve global problems such as hunger, poverty and disease.

Another beneficial outcome the authors entertain sees humanity triumph over a more powerful alien aggressor, or even being saved by a second group of ETs. “In these scenarios, humanity benefits not only from the major moral victory of having defeated a daunting rival, but also from the opportunity to reverse-engineer ETI technology,” the authors write.

Other kinds of close encounter may be less rewarding and leave much of human society feeling indifferent towards alien life. The extraterrestrials may be too different from us to communicate with usefully. They might invite humanity to join the “Galactic Club” only for the entry requirements to be too bureaucratic and tedious for humans to bother with. They could even become a nuisance, like the stranded, prawn-like creatures that are kept in a refugee camp in the 2009 South African movie, District 9, the report explains.

The most unappealing outcomes would arise if extraterrestrials caused harm to humanity, even if by accident. While aliens may arrive to eat, enslave or attack us, the report adds that people might also suffer from being physically crushed or by contracting diseases carried by the visitors. In especially unfortunate incidents, humanity could be wiped out when a more advanced civilisation accidentally unleashes an unfriendly artificial intelligence, or performs a catastrophic physics experiment that renders a portion of the galaxy uninhabitable.

To bolster humanity’s chances of survival, the researchers call for caution in sending signals into space, and in particular warn against broadcasting information about our biological make-up, which could be used to manufacture weapons that target humans. Instead, any contact with ETs should be limited to mathematical discourse “until we have a better idea of the type of ETI we are dealing with.”

The authors warn that extraterrestrials may be wary of civilisations that expand very rapidly, as these may be prone to destroy other life as they grow, just as humans have pushed species to extinction on Earth. In the most extreme scenario, aliens might choose to destroy humanity to protect other civilisations.

“A preemptive strike would be particularly likely in the early phases of our expansion because a civilisation may become increasingly difficult to destroy as it continues to expand. Humanity may just now be entering the period in which its rapid civilisational expansion could be detected by an ETI because our expansion is changing the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere, via greenhouse gas emissions,” the report states.

“Green” aliens might object to the environmental damage humans have caused on Earth and wipe us out to save the planet. “These scenarios give us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems. It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets,” the authors write.

Even if we never make contact with extraterrestrials, the report argues that considering the potential scenarios may help to plot the future path of human civilisation, avoid collapse and achieve long-term survival.

(Author’s Note: Here is another classic example of pre-programming for the ‘Alien Agenda’.  You have to love the way they bring into play the ‘failed’ global warming scam, as if we still believe this is man-made!!  And please, if you still do, look into the heating up of the ‘other’ planets in our solar system, and look into the sun’s solar maximum cycles.

Remember, a ‘united’ one world government for complete power and control is their endgame.  What did President Reagan hint at often to the UN?)

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky.”

IBM has developed a microprocessor which it claims comes closer than ever to replicating the human brain.

The system is capable of “rewiring” its connections as it encounters new information, similar to the way biological synapses work.

Researchers believe that that by replicating that feature, the technology could start to learn.

Cognitive computers may eventually be used for understanding human behaviour as well as environmental monitoring.

Dharmendra Modha, IBM’s project leader, explained that they were trying to recreate aspects of the mind such as emotion, perception, sensation and cognition by “reverse engineering the brain.”

The SyNAPSE system uses two prototype “neurosynaptic computing chips”. Both have 256 computational cores, which the scientists described as the electronic equivalent of neurons.

One chip has 262,144 programmable synapses, while the other contains 65,536 learning synapses.

Man machine

In humans and animals, synaptic connections between brain cells physically connect themselves depending on our experience of the world. The process of learning is essentially the forming and strengthening of connections.

A machine cannot solder and de-solder its electrical tracks. However, it can simulate such a system by “turning up the volume” on important input signals, and paying less attention to others.

IBM has not released exact details of how its SyNAPSE processor works, but Dr Richard Cooper, a reader in cognitive science at Birkbeck, University of London said that it likely replicated physical connections using a “virtual machine”.

Instead of stronger and weaker links, such a system would simply remember how much “attention” to pay to each signal and alter that depending on new experiences.

“Part of the trick is the learning algorithm – how should you turn those volumes up and down,” said Dr Cooper.

“There’s a a whole bunch of tasks that can be done just with a relatively simple system like that such as associative memory. When we see a cat we might think of a mouse.”

Some future-gazers in the cognitive computing world have speculated that the technology will reach a tipping point where machine consciousness is possible.

However, Dr Mark Bishop, professor of cognitive computing at Goldsmiths, was more cautious.

“[I] understand cognition to be something over and above a process simulated by the execution of mere computations, [and] see such claims as verging on the magical,” he said.

IBM’s work on the SyNAPSE project continues and the company, along with its academic partners, has just been awarded $21m (£12.7m) by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

(Author’s Note: I think we have ALL seen the Terminator movies!!  I think we ALL understand the consequences of technologies becoming self-aware!!  Hollywood and the entertainment industries have been ‘programming’ us since their inception, to accept these ‘new’ technological innovations, as just mere human ‘advancement’.

Judgement Day is upon us, in the Terminator-esque style, and in the Biblical sense.  We will never learn.)
