    The Revelation 12 v 1&2 Heavenly Sign that occurs on the 23 September 2017 occurs only once in Man?s History. I have checked 6,200 years into the past and 1200 years into the future and the arrangement only occurs in 2017.


    Revelation 12 King James Version (KJV)

    12 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

    2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

    3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

    4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

    5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

    6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

    7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

    8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

    9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

    10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

    11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

    12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

    13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

    14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

    15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

    16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

    17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

  • The Invaders S02E01 Condition Red

    The Invaders is an American science fiction television program created by Larry Cohen that aired on ABC for two seasons, from January 10, 1967 to March 26, 1968. Dominic Frontiere, who had provided scores for Twelve O'Clock High and The Outer Limits, provided scores for The Invaders as well.

    The series was a Quinn Martin Production (Season One was produced in association with the ABC Television Network - or as it was listed in the end credits, "The American Broadcasting Company Television Network").

    1"Condition: Red"September 5, 1967 (1967-09-05)

    Falling off a horse, Laurie Keller (Antoinette Bower) is pronounced dead by a physician. He reports the death using a police phone, but he then sees the woman rise and is himself killed by three aliens. David Vincent, having read in the newspaper that the woman was reported alive by her husband, NORAD Major Dan Keller (Jason Evers), suspects that she is an Invader: since the aliens have no pulse, an unconscious Invader could have been mistaken for dead.

    Under an assumed identity, he joins a tour of the NORAD base under Cheyenne Mountain where Dan Keller works as a computer programmer. There, he is recognized by Major Stanhope (Simon Scott), the base's intelligence officer, who lets him investigate.

    It turns out that Laurie is indeed an Invader, and Major Keller is being forced against his will to figure out how to have a squadron of ships take possession of an island off the coast of Alaska without being detected by military radar installations. She has him replace one of the computer tapes. His suspicion raised, Major Keller confronts his wife. She incapacitates him, but he manages to kill her, confirming her true nature when she immediately burns to ashes. He calls the base to warn the military just as other aliens arrive and shoot him. At the base, the crew decides to switch to the backup program, thus revealing the incoming formation of alien ships. After receiving a signal from Laurie's accomplices, the ships retreat. As Vincent leaves, Major Stanhope tells him that the Keller case will be buried, but that he will continue to investigate.

    WOW! That's all I can say. Avast maties we're going back in time to our January 14, 2009 masterpiece with Agent Lady Bug. It's hard to believe much of our material is so humorous and yet so sincere. We decry the up and coming Transnational Muslim Nation. Today you might call it a Caliphate.

    On Conspiracy Cafe, we extolled an opinion that the Gaza conflict is a cash flow problem. We found Hamas was founded and funded from some major OPEC nations and Israel itself. In four months the middle east fiefdoms have lost trillions of dollars and are facing economic Armageddon. They have no choice but to pull their trump card Hamas. They may be using Hamas at the very least to antagonize the dragon; but in the global economy, the dragon must be heavily tied to the economies of the neighbouring nations even if it only entails accepting their deposits. 

    Analysis: Hamas history tied to Israel

    Analysis: A conflict with no name

    Pirates get $3 million ransom delivered from the US military. Iranian ship released with Star Sirius. Davey Jones' locker gets new recruits. The truth behind the terrorism in Gaza. Oil nations and Israel supported Hamas. Has the invasion been to fix the price for oil? President Bush in with a bang, out with a drill. The Darwin list.

    Did Bush cause the financial crisis?

    The Bush Legacy

    Never vote for a man who belongs to a secret fraternity called Skull & Bones. Never vote for a man whose father is one of two men who couldn't remember where they were when President Kennedy was shot and was photographed near a certain school book depository. Never vote for a man whose grandfather (Prescott Bush) earned notoriety bankrolling a man named Hitler. Never vote for a man whose family had their assets confiscated under The Trading with the Enemy Act during a world war. Never trust mainstream media to tell you things because they won't. So who is responsible? We are because we are too lazy to do our own research. The media is responsible for controlling information and extolling propaganda. Our reward will be economic collapse and getting mired in a long protracted war that may escalate into a major regional conflict if not an outright world war. All the while the perpetrator shrugs his shoulders like any spoiled rich kid who never had to face up to anything daddy couldn't fix. But at least he was at the helm this time instead going AWOL from his National Guard unit in time of war. The Bush legacy will haunt the world for decades to come and it's our fault because we refused to exercise our duties forcing him and the Congress to uphold the shining light of the world the Constitution of the United States of America. May God forgive us for our errors and restore her as a nation of nations unequalled in reverence around the world.

    THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FOREVER TIME (Invitation #4) Copyright 2016. In this invitation the holiest knowledge of all time is given to the world.. A revolutionary unveiling of wisdom that is so powerful that it will transform everything in our world. This is the famed and prized knowledge that will allow human beings to live for an eternity. Ancient an aged rocks have been carrying this secret for more than 100,000 years, and now we can finally read them. Each rock is a Prometheus Stone, and within each stone is the knowledge of Immortality.

    Genesis 2 informs that God created a garden in Eden. He then fashioned the first man, Adam, for an explicit purpose: to "till" the garden, a point God reiterates three times in chapters 2 and 3. In the last line of chapter 3, we learn that the God exiles the man by placeing him "east of the garden." The inspiration for these words was imparted from the stars. Centuries before Genesis was written, cuneiform star atlases list a Garden constellation. Just east of the celestial Garden stands the man assigned to till it, the Gardener constellation (modern Aries). Beside him rests his tool, the Plow constellation (Triangulum). The biblical Garden of Eden story describes precisely what was visible in the constellations.

    In Genesis 3, the Serpent tempts Eve into eating from the Tree-of-Knowledge. The impetus for the story came right out of the stars. Cuneiform religous texts call the sky a "tree." A Date-fruit constellation grew from this celestial Tree. Directly beside the Date-fruit constellation stood a Woman (Virgo) and a Serpent (Hydra). This implies that the sky was the Tree-of-Knowledge and the Date-fruit constellation was the sinful Fruit of which Eve ate. Jewish astrologers perceived this stellar image as a "snapshot" from the beginning of time, when a primordial Serpent tempted Eve into eating celestial Fruit from the Tree-of-Knowledge.


    Keep in mind Satan was a serpent. Furthermore there is a body of opinion the constellation Cygnus is perfect match with the pyramids.

    Beyond Westworld was a short-lived 1980 television series that carried on the stories of the two feature films, Westworld and Futureworld. It featured Jim McMullan as Security Chief John Moore of the Delos Corporation. The story revolved around John Moore having to stop the evil scientist, Quaid, as he planned to use the robots in Delos to try to take over the world. Despite being nominated for two Emmys (Outstanding Achievement In Makeup, and Outstanding Art Direction For A Series), only five episodes were produced, and only three of them were aired before cancellation.

    Donald Trump responded to Democratic rival Hillary Clinton‘s blistering attack speech with an address of his own, and he kicked it off with an explicit plea to supporters of independent Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential runner-up Bernie Sanders, who still has not conceded the nomination to Hillary. In the first minutes of his speech, Trump implored Sanders fans to join him in defeating Hillary Clinton, echoing the movement’s complaints about “rigged” elections: The insiders wrote the rules of the game to keep themselves in power and in money. That’s why we’re asking Bernie Sanders voters to join our movement so together we can fix the system for all Americans. This includes fixing all of our many disastrous trade deals, and they are disastrous and destroying our country. Because it’s not just the political system that’s rigged, it’s the whole economy. Trump gave Sanders another shout-out a few minutes later, echoing an attack line that the Vermont Senator used during his primary battle with Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton wants to be president. But she doesn’t have the temperament and, or as Bernie Sanders said, very strongly, the judgment to be president. She does not have the judgment. She believes… she believes she’s entitled to the office. Her campaign slogan is “I’m with her.” You know what my response is to that? I’m with you, the American people.

    Sanders has pledged to join the fight against Trump “in a very short period of time.” Donald Trump today blasted Hillary Clinton as a “world-class liar” and attacked her record as secretary of state.

    “Hillary Clinton has perfected the politics of personal profit and even theft,” Trump said in New York. “She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund.”

    He added: “If she ever became president, God help us.”

    US On Increased Military Readiness Alert

    Updated 6/21 11:50pm est

    The US Military appeared to be at heightened alert status on Sunday, according to the privately-run website known as Defcon Warning System. The report was followed by a change on their website indicating a potential DEFCON 3.

    The official DEFCON system prescribes five graduated levels of readiness for the U.S. military. It increases in severity from DEFCON 5 (least severe) to DEFCON 1 (most severe) to match varying military situations. Often confused with THREATCON, a system primarily used to indicate threats related to terrorism, the DEFCON status specifically deals with any potential military threat to the nation as a whole.

    “Multiple sources have confirmed unusual strategic activity in the United States and Russia. Information coming to the DEFCON Warning System indicates high level maneuvers to defuse whatever situation is occurring,” the website stated. “At this time, U.S. and Russian forces are in the air, likely moving to control points. We have no reports of any engagements. Domestic assets are moving into defensive positions.”

    War Monitor had notified DEFCON of information provided to us by our own sources, which corroborated much of what was being stated.

    Prior to the announcement, our own ADSB flight monitoring team took notice of an increase in military flight traffic. This included routine flights of several E-4B and E-6B aircraft. The primary function of these planes is to act as a flying communications center to ensure that the US military can still respond in the event of a first nuclear strike.

    According to a source, this also included the departure of several US bombers, which were allegedly armed with nuclear weapons. We shared this information with the DEFCON research team, who concurred through their own sources that these flights were in fact taking place. Though bombers generally fly with their transponders turned off, we did take notice of several civilian aircraft being redirected around the bases where they were said to have departed from. On one base, which primarily holds B-52 bombers, a local witness mentioned that all of the aircraft that was normally stationed there had taken off.

    Military radio traffic had also increased in activity, with many operators speaking out of distress. Some transmissions included errors not normally heard in these types of communication. An encrypted digital signal was also heard on 11175 Mhz, something that had never been noticed by our own radio interception team in the past (listen below). This channel is generally reserved for Emergency Action Messages, which were also quite excessive across most USAF frequencies on Sunday and Monday.


    ADSB monitors reported that the skies in both Europe and the US were flooded with military aircraft. This continued up until yesterday, when the appearance of NATO aircraft diminished over Europe. The skies above the US, however, continue to remain covered with strategic aircraft. The daily presence of “Doomsday” planes over the US also appear to be the new norm, indicating that military readiness efforts may have reverted back to that of the last Cold War.

    Rumors exploded on social media following the reports. As usual, many exceeded well past the realm of confirmation and sailed into that of fear induced anxiety. The most common evolved into the possibility of an imminent nuclear war between Russia and NATO, a claim that DEFCON Warning System itself had never made. This certainly was a possibility based on available information and the current tensions between the two nuclear superpowers, however, there were few facts available to support that particular claim. Rumors such as these would likely not have developed, should official media report World news for what it is and not just for how they wish it to appear.

    Some claimed that DEFCON itself was the source of the rumor, and even deemed their statements as false, citing the lack of reports in mainstream media. That in itself was a false claim, considering that should events escalate to a full scale conflict, it’s unlikely that mass media would be informed in a timely manner, or even care to take the time to cover the story. If it doesn’t have to do with transgender rights or the death of a gorilla, it just doesn’t seem like newsworthy material as far as the official media stands today. When mass media does choose to report a potential military conflict, it’s often several days later and stripped of many important facts.

    Other outlets praised the organization for their efforts in informing the public of a potential upcoming conflict. It should be noted that DEFCON Warning System does not collect a profit for their contributions. They also do not have a record of sounding the alarm unless at least some credible evidence warrants such an action. Having had the opportunity to actually work with the team this week, I can attest that it took them hours of sifting through various types of information prior to making any statement to the public. The site’s DEFCON status does not reflect any relation to that of any government agency, which they have made clear on many occasions to ensure no confusion. Therefore, their version of the indicator is an estimation determined by information available to them from various sources and open-sourced data.

    So why has the military stepped up US defenses? The world is getting crazier, and the past few days left a stench that had not been smelled for over 20 years, that of the last cold war. It’s likely that the White House has finally made the decision to step up America’s defenses, something that had been long overdue since Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014. Similar to a lack of admission in regard to Islamic Radicalization in the homeland, a new cold war has been denied by the Administration, despite facts to the contrary. Our staff concluded back in 2014, that by definition, the world has in fact entered a new cold war, resulting in yet another arms race. Many private and even Government think tanks support this assessment of the current situation.

    Another contribution to the the new readiness may be related to increased fighting in Ukraine, which Russia is likely responsible for, as well as the Russian bombing of US assets in Syria. Recent developments also include a push to declare war on the Assad regime coming from many members of the State Department, which is a move that Russia would likely respond to militarily. NATO has also agreed to further arm the Baltics, an action that propaganda interprets as a buildup for an imminent invasion of Russian territory. And of course, we cannot ignore what is taking place in the South China Sea.

    So as we can see, despite a lack in mainstream coverage, the US is experiencing escalation upon escalation in regard to tensions with both Russia and China. That being said, there is no shortage of actions taking place in the World that can result in the military buildup of US forces. While mass media’s primary focus is set on ISIS and politics, the threat of nuclear war continues to become a renewed reality that we may eventually have to face. However unlikely, it certainly makes sense to be prepared for such a scenario.

    Mission: Impossible is an American television series that was created and initially produced by Bruce Geller. It chronicles the missions of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). In the first season, the team is led by Dan Briggs, played by Steven Hill; Jim Phelps, played by Peter Graves, takes charge for the remaining seasons. A hallmark of the series shows Briggs or Phelps receiving his instructions on a recording that then self-destructs, followed by the theme music composed by Lalo Schifrin.

    The series was filmed and financed by Desilu Productions, and aired on the CBS network from September 1966 to March 1973. The series was reprised in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996.

    The series follows the exploits of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF), a small team of secret agents used for covert missions against dictators, evil organizations and (primarily in later episodes) crime lords. On occasion, the IMF also mounts unsanctioned, private missions on behalf of its members.

    The identities of the higher echelons of the organization that oversees the IMF are never revealed. Only rare cryptic bits of information are ever provided during the life of the series, such as in the third season mission "Nicole", where the IMF leader states that his instructions come from "Division Seven". In the 1980s revival, it is suggested the IMF is an independent agency of the United States government.

    Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, PC, DL, FRS, RA (30 November 1874 - 24 January 1965) was a British statesman who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a non-academic historian, a writer (as Winston S. Churchill), and an artist. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.

    Churchill, aged seven, in 1881

    Churchill was born into the family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, was a charismatic politician who served as Chancellor of the Exchequer; his mother, Jennie Jerome, was an American socialite. As a young army officer, he saw action in British India, the Anglo–Sudan War, and the Second Boer War. He gained fame as a war correspondent and wrote books about his campaigns.

    At the forefront of politics for fifty years, he held many political and cabinet positions. Before the First World War, he served as President of the Board of Trade, Home Secretary, and First Lord of the Admiralty as part of Asquith's Liberal government. During the war, he continued as First Lord of the Admiralty until the disastrous Gallipoli Campaign caused his departure from government. He then briefly resumed active army service on the Western Front as commander of the 6th Battalion of the Royal Scots Fusiliers. He returned to government under Lloyd George as Minister of Munitions, Secretary of State for War, Secretary of State for Air, then Secretary of State for the Colonies. After two years out of Parliament, he served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in Baldwin's Conservative government of 1924–1929, controversially returning the pound sterling in 1925 to the gold standard at its pre-war parity, a move widely seen as creating deflationary pressure on the UK economy.

    Churchill in military uniform, 1895

    Out of office and politically "in the wilderness" during the 1930s because of his opposition to increased home rule for India and his resistance to the 1936 abdication of Edward VIII, Churchill took the lead in warning about Nazi Germany and in campaigning for rearmament. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was again appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. Following the resignation of Neville Chamberlain on 10 May 1940, Churchill became Prime Minister. His speeches and radio broadcasts helped inspire British resistance, especially during the difficult days of 1940–41 when the British Commonwealth and Empire stood almost alone in its active opposition to Adolf Hitler. He led Britain as Prime Minister until victory over Nazi Germany had been secured.

    After the Conservative Party lost the 1945 election, he became Leader of the Opposition to the Labour Government. He publicly warned of an "Iron Curtain" of Soviet influence in Europe and promoted European unity. After winning the 1951 election, Churchill again became Prime Minister. His second term was preoccupied by foreign affairs, including the Malayan Emergency, Mau Mau Uprising, Korean War, and a UK-backed coup d'état in Iran. Domestically his government laid great emphasis on house-building. Churchill suffered a serious stroke in 1953 and retired as Prime Minister in 1955, although he remained a Member of Parliament until 1964. Upon his death aged ninety in 1965, Elizabeth II granted him the honour of a state funeral, which saw one of the largest assemblies of world statesmen in history. Named the Greatest Briton of all time in a 2002 poll, Churchill is widely regarded as being among the most influential people in British history, consistently ranking well in opinion polls of Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom.
