RV/INTELLIGENCE ALERT - December 16, 2017


Quick Review of the Current Situation:


December 14th


The Galactic's arrived in the U.S. to oversee the RV release. We also found out that energy blockades were put up to prevent leaks of the actual RV release date.


(The Galactic's know the importance of the GCR/RV despite them not having any concept of time, space, and money.)


HSBC tested the new quantum financial system by inviting individuals from ZIM groups to exchange in Zurich, Switzerland.


December 15th


The flow of intel suddenly came to a halt right after the Galactic's arrived the prior day.


December 16th (Today)


Multiple private exchanges worldwide have been confirmed. (HSBC possibly doing more tests of the quantum financial system.)


It appears the transition is now occurring gradually.

Our group (Tier 4) has been offered immediate closing opportunity in Zurich for our Zim. This appears to be the start can't go into alot of details besides we got the call. Maybe this will help everyone else with some relief. Thank you.

B. Dec. 16 2017 5:44 pm EST GCR Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure GCR/RV Intel Alert for December 16, 2017 https://operationdisclosure.blogspot.com/

1. Dec. 14: HSBC tested the new Quantum Financial System by inviting individuals from ZIM groups to exchange in Zurich, Switzerland.

2. Dec. 15: Intel was placed on a Blackout.

3. Dec. 16: Multiple private exchanges worldwide have been confirmed. (HSBC possibly doing more tests of the Quantum Financial System.)

C. Dec. 16 2017 2:22 pm EST Correction on the Larrabee Report, Tank: "Re: Larrabee Report Status" - S.P.E.A.K. Intel Update - Tank - 12.16.17

1. We're trying to expose the entire story being told in the intel, distinguish what is real and what is psyops, and discern lies.

2. The breakdown below is the intel from Gary Larrabee's webcast. The current status thereof was based on various reliable and vetted sources (commentary in bold):

3. LARRABEE: Planners are trying to get this done if possible on or before Christmas.

TANK: This is true and it "being done" includes our private exchanges being mostly completed by Christmas, not just started.

4. LARRABEE: They were trying to get 8 days for 800#s, even move it up to two.

TANK: This is true and, to clarify, "move it up to two" means they were trying to get it done yesterday to have ten full days of exchanges before Christmas. The numbers had a set time for release last night that started at around 7 PM EST and SHOULD have reached us already. All we've been told is that it's taking longer than expected.

5. LARRABEE: The main issue was to get the announcement of the active USN. It is legal, there is inventory (meaning gold) and it's waiting to be active internationally.

TANK: Active USN is not applicable, or necessary for our release. The USN is active but not fully international. It will be announced on or around the 21st of December.

6. LARRABEE: We have to check if it is gold/asset backed was part of the delay.

TANK: The USN is asset-backed and even the USD is backed by the USN. The real gold-backing for the world is in the ZIM bond notes we are holding.

7. LARRABEE: Trump does not want the USN to be out internationally.

TANK: NOT True. Trump is and has been an advocate for our progress.

8. LARRABEE: Trump still wants the Cabal to pay fines and penalties, which has been part of the delay since he wanted the banking system to pay for damages done.

TANK: Yes, and he has stated this exact language in reference to Wells Fargo paying for their financial crimes to hinder this process.

9. LARRABEE: The Cabal was trying to stop or distract process.

TANK: Yes, obviously.

10. LARRABEE: The Banking cartel found a glitch — that software and the problem has been eradicated.

TANK: This is true. The Loophole closed Wed. morning Dec. 13. Rumors are telling us that the Cabal was trying to take the 80% of held funds and use it to perform micro trades and build back up the wealth and power of the Cabal. Doesn't quite make sense to me because they told us that wouldn't be a thing all the way back in September.

11. LARRABEE: They want to contain the Cabal from the Trump Camp as it's related to East Jerusalem being part of Palestine.

TANK: This containment is finished, which is why Trump came out to announce the US embassy moving to the true capital of Israel, Jerusalem. Netanyahu supported and complied with said action.

12. LARRABEE: Until the safety team says its ok, we still wait.

TANK: The Safety Team has already signed off.

13. LARRABEE: The "Hercules System" is ok, but it needs to be safe before we go.

TANK: The system is Officially SAFE.

14. LARRABEE: We know the Admiral's Core group has received funds for the first time in their accounts.

TANK: That is a fact. The Admiral has even told them that their business together is done because he has released all control of their money to the designated accounts provided by the members. However, the banks themselves have not released these funds to the members even after holding them since Thursday morning Dec. 14. Either they are in shock or they are waiting for all of us to release at the same time. The Core has been told once again that they WILL BE LIQUID this morning. When this Liquidity is a fact for the Core, our release should come out at the same time.

Galactic Star Map: Human Brain

Human Brain – Galactic Star Map

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

Universal Life Tools | By Simone Matthews



After posting my recent Galactic Evolution-Alignment Article, I have received many requests for info about our Galactic Center (GC), our Super Galactic Centre (SGC) and The Great Attractor (TGA)… thanks everyone for your curiosity & interest:)

Here is a brief insight into these energy centres, their metaphysical resonances and greater potentialities… enjoy !

Milky Way Galaxy



Our Milky Way is a spiral Galaxy made up of many spiral arms that rotate around its centre – the Galactic Centre (GC).

The spiral arms of our galaxy form a flat plane (the Galactic Plane)… hence from the position of Earth when we see the Milky Way Galaxy up in the night sky we see the ‘plane’ of our Galaxy – a long band of stars.

Our Earth and hence our Sun (ie our entire Solar System) are located within the Milky Way Galaxy. In fact our Sun is one of over 100 billion Suns within our Galaxy. Location wise, our Solar Solar System is located approximately 27,000 light years from the Galactic Centre, in the region of the Orion-Cygnus arm.

When we look up and see the Galactic Plane at night it appears to be separate from us, but in fact we are within the Milky Way Galaxy looking into the GC… it is just billions of stars within the Galaxy are so far apart, it creates an illusion that we are separate from the field.



Within our Galaxy, (in fact within the entire Aetheric Field), everything is within a constant state of revolution/evolution. The Earth revolves around the Sun every 365 days, our Sun revolves around Alcyone (brightest star in the Pleiades) every 26,000 years and Alcyone revolves around Sirius every 225,000 years. Conversely, all of these heavenly bodies – Earth, Solar System, Alcyone, Sirius – are revolving around the Galactic Centre of the Milky Way Galaxy taking 225 Million years.

The energetic field that surrounds & weaves its way through the Milky Way Galaxy is a Torus – Torroidal Field.

Energy moves up from the centre of the Torus – the Galactic Centre, moving up and over along the energetic meridian lines of the Torus in a (fibonacci spiral formation) emanating to the other limits of the Milky Way Galaxy and then moving back up into the centre of the Torus and back into the Galactic Centre.

Our Milky Way Galaxy is part of a local grouping of 50+ Galaxies referred to as the ‘Local Group’. Our Local Group is then part of an even greater group called the Virgo Super Cluster, which in turn is part of an even greater group called Laniakea Super Cluster.

The Galactic Centre

The Galactic Centre (GC) is a giant black & white whole that sits at the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy. The Galactic Centre is currently positioned at 280 Sagittarius (tropical) or 40 Sagittarius (sidereal).

Metaphysically, the Galactic Centre is the source of our Soul’s highest aspirations & what we have chosen as the greater evolutionary purpose for our Soul in this lifetime.

To understand the influence the Galactic Centre has upon you individually, I recommend looking at your own personal Natal Chart (your astrology chart), and the position/house of the Galactic Centre at your time of Birth – as this will give you a greater understand of your Soul Purpose in this lifetime. Refer to Aetheric Healing™ for further details.

The Galactic Centre is a powerful transmitter of energy waves known as ‘Waves of Love’. Since 1987, the vibrational frequency of these Waves have been increasing in intensity and will continue to do so as we move toward 2040, the Golden Age (refer to my book Shealla-Dreaming) as we quantum leap into our new 225 Million year Galactic Cycle.



These electro-magnetic cosmic emissions (Waves of Love) are pulsating the torroidal field of energy that surrounds our heart, helping us to beat our Hearts Torroidal Field in unison with the Earth’s Torroidal Feild, in unison with our Milky Way Galaxy’s Torroidal Field.

As the ‘three Hearts’ (Earth, Human Heart, Galactic Heart) beat as ONE, we move beyond the limitation of our perceived separateness, and we embrace the Love, the Joy, the Beauty of a ONE humanity evolving into an enlightened New Earth.

Super Galactic Centre

As mentioned above, our Milky Way Galaxy is part of a local grouping of 50+ Galaxies referred to as the ‘Local Group’. The Local Group (which includes our Milky Way Galaxy) is then part of an even greater group called the Virgo Super Cluster, which in turn is part of an even greater group called Laniakea Super Cluster.



Whilst our Solar System revolves around the Galactic Centre every 225 Million years, our entire Milky Way Galaxy (including the entire Local Group) revolves around the Super Galactic Centre (SGC) (m-87) of the Virgo Super Cluster over of period of immeasurable years (a number beyond the realm of cognition by human consciousness).

The Super Galactic Centre is located at 20 Libra (tropical) or 70 Virgo (sidereal) and at an approximate distance of 53 Million light years from Earth (1 light year = 9.5 Trillion km). Whilst the Super Galactic Centre has the mass of 30 trillion times that of our own Sun, 90% of the SGC remains hidden.

Whilst the Galactic Centre influences are individual Soul Evolutionary Purpose, the Super Galactic Centre represents the greater potential of our Higher Collective Consciousness – the Collective Evolutionary Purpose of our Galaxy & Local Group.

The Super Galactic Centre draws us into a higher cosmic relationship with the eternal force of creation. An interweaving, a soul-mate connection as the Feminine & Masculine fully unite as ONE, entwining together in a cosmic DNA spiral of life.

Interestingly the Super Galactic Centre lies at a right angle to the Galactic Centre. Just like sunlight refracts of water droplets at a right angle to create a rainbow, Super Galactic Centre Cosmic Radiation Wave emissions refract through the Galactic Centre amplifying the GC Wave of LOVE streams and awakening humanity into the next cycle of Evolution. On an individual level, these right angle emissions stimulate our Light Activation Points (refer Crystal Light Healing®), ultimately resonating our pineal gland / primordial cells pathway and activating our DNA.

Laniakea – The Great Attractor

Moving beyond the Super Galactic Centre lies the Laniakea Supercluster – Laniakea is Hawaiian for ‘Immeasurable Heaven’.



At the centre of Laniakea Supercluster lies The Great Attractor (TGA) which is both pulling us toward her centre and simultaneously moving other Galaxies away from her centre (the infinite toric field spiral – ‘as above, so below’).

The Great Attractor is located at 140 Sagittarius (tropical) or 190 Scorpio (sidereal) and at an approximate distance of 250 Million light years from our Milky Way Galaxy (1 light year = 9.5 Trillion km).

The Great Attractor gets its name from the fact that it has a mysterious energy force that has a gravitational influence over 100,000 Galaxies, including our own Super Galactic Centre & our Milky Way Galactic Centre. Through the cosmic ripples of the Great Attractor which bends space/light/time, we have access to the past, present & potential future.

Awakening to the intelligence of The Great Attractor allows us to let go of the fear, imprinting, dogma, old-Earth consciousness and truly embrace a higher cosmic relationship with Creation… allowing ourselves to surrender to the eternal Great Cosmic Breath of LOVE.

Galactic Star Map – The Human Brain

So how then does our Milky Way Galaxy, Virgo Super Cluster & Laniakea relate to the Human Brain?



The Aetheric Field – the field of infinite intelligence – is holographic in nature. Within a hologram, any one part of the field (micro) is a mirror reflection of the entire field (macro).

As human beings here on Earth, revolving around the Sun, revolving around the Galactic Centre of our Milky Way Galaxy, revolving around the Virgo Super Cluster SGC (as part of a Local Group of Galaxies) and being drawn into The Great Attractor of Laniakea – we ourselves are not separate from the Aetheric Field – but rather are strands of resonance that weave the symphony of creation together.

Reflecting back on the micro/macro aspects of the holgraphic Aetheric Field, then it is easy to draw correlations of our beingness with the entire field.

Take for instance the Human Brain – science estimates there are 100 Billion Neurons within the Human Brain that act as communication pathways that process & transmit information through electrical & chemical signals.

Is it such a leap then to see the micro of the Brain as a star map of the macro of our Milky Way Galaxy. Once again science estimates there are 100 Billion Stars within our Milky Way Galaxy, so could our brain be a ‘star map’ or a ‘tuning fork’ that acts as a communication pathway between human consciousness and cosmic consciousness. Surely this correlation is no longer such a big step to make in light of our understanding of Quantum Mechanics and our ability to influence and be influenced by the field on a sub-atomic level?

We can also drill down further into the body onto a cellular & atomic level. There are approximately 100 Trillion cells in the human body… PLUS there are 100 Trillion atoms that make-up every cell of the body… PLUS there are 100 Trillion synapses in our human brain (a synapse enables the neurons of the brain to pass electrical/chemical messages to other neurons). So based on these incredible correlations… maybe the cells/atoms of our body are both transmitters/receivers of information from the Aetheric Field… and the Brain is thus a computer/star map that acts as an intermediary transmitter between human biology and the entire Aetheric Field ?

The diagram above artistically displays the ‘neural network’ of Laniakea, how the intricate patterns of Galaxies inter-connect with each other creating a cosmic web of intelligence. Interestingly, this web looks remarkably like a map of the Neuronal Networks of the Human Brain.

I love how the word Laniakea is hawaiian for ‘immense heaven’… so we could say that our brain & human cellular biology enables us to experience ‘heaven’ from the inside out!

BOMBSHELL REPORT: Congress To Be ‘ROCKED’ By MASSIVE SCANDAL In Next 72 HOURS [Details]

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Makes Major Announcement That Could Shake Up The Vaccine Industry

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Throws Down the Gauntlet, Makes Major Announcement That Could Shake Up The Vaccine Industry As We Know It (With Video)

Source: Ascension With Earth




http://althealthworks.com

by Nick Meyer | December 14, 2017

The vaccine industry has been able to keep a tremendous amount of information hidden from its customer base, and the general public for that matter, for years.

But now the truth is finally coming to light: regardless of whatever benefits they may provide, today’s vaccines are being implicated for causing harm across a wide spectrum of people in the United States, who are suffering without the ability to hold those in power responsible.

The numbers don’t lie: nearly $3.6 billion in compensation has been paid out to vaccine injury victims through a court-created system established in 1986, when vaccine makers were officially granted legal immunity from being sued, even in cases where their products have caused serious harm.

According to some estimates, including one cited by the World Mercury Project, as little as 1% of vaccine injuries are reported each year – in other words, this could be a far bigger problem than most people realize.

It’s because of statistics like these, and the growing numbers of parents coming forward with their own vaccine injury stories, that well known public interest attorney Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has officially decided to make a major shift in his career priorities going forward.

And if his past history of legal success is any indication, it could be a major turning point for one of the most overlooked (and under-studied) health epidemics in the country.

RFK Jr. All-In for Vaccine Safety Movement

Speaking in a video on the World Mercury Project’s Facebook page, Kennedy, Jr., whose proposed vaccine safety panel on behalf of President Donald Trump was never green-lighted, has decided to take matters into his own hands, and says he will apply all of his energies toward cleaning up the vaccine industry.

“For 30 years I’ve been successfully fighting the biggest bullies on the American political landscape, the oil companies, the coal companies, the chemical companies, big agriculture and the other big polluters,” he says in the video, which can be seen in full below.

“But I’ve decided now to take a hiatus from those battles and apply all of my energies to what I consider the most important battles for protecting America’s children and children all over the world.”

Kennedy, Jr.’s new target will be the vaccine industry, which has strayed far from its original mission and is now “above the law” in many ways, as Kennedy alludes to in the video.

It starts with accountability from regulatory agencies, which Kennedy, Jr. said is greatly lacking.
“The way that the industry has been able to continue this conduct, this criminal conduct, for so many years is because they’ve been able to escape scrutiny,” Kennedy said.

“The regulatory agencies have been captured by the industries that they’re supposed to regulate. The government officials, Congress have (all) been corrupted by huge influxes of money from the pharmaceutical industry…”

“And now, the industry is going state-by-state across the country to try to get legislation passed to remove that last barrier, the parents, the mothers of these children, and taking away from them their ability to make healthcare decisions for their children.”



RFK, Jr. Project Kicks Off Fundraising Campaign

In order to support this new endeavor, the World Mercury Project, a grassroots roots organization chaired by Kennedy, Jr. with the goal of removing and potentially even banning the world’s second most toxic substance, is now accepting donations for its new Vaccine Safety Project.

“Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the World Mercury Project want vaccines to go through the same rigorous approval process and testing as all drugs,” the project’s Indiegogo page states.

“The government admits that only 1% of vaccine injuries are reported. That would translate to as many as 6 million Americans possibly injured by vaccines each year. Our children deserve better.”

As part of the undertaking, the World Mercury Project and RFK, Jr. released their ‘Six Steps to Vaccine Safety,’ which they are hoping to institute in order to transform Washington, D.C.’s corrupt vaccine safety system:

1. Subject vaccines to the same rigorous approval process as other drugs – While drugs cause tens of thousands of deaths each year, and would rank 9th among all causes of death if overdoses were included, they are still subject to higher safety standards than vaccines.

Considering that vaccines are administered in growing numbers to the youngest and most at-risk members of society (infants and children), the importance of this change cannot be overstated.

2. Mandate mandatory reporting of adverse vaccine-related events – Vaccine-related injuries have led to about $3.6 billion in compensation from the government-created VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Safety Reporting System) since 1986.

The Project hopes to automate the VAERS and VSD (Vaccine Safety Datalink) systems to shed more light on the growing numbers of vaccine injury victims.

3. Ensure all involved with Federal vaccine approvals and recommendations are free from conflicts-of-interest – Theseare rampant in the industry, including the CDC which has has routinely allowed scientists with conflicts-of-interest to serve on influential advisory committees making recommendations on vaccine policy, as pointed out in a recent House Government Reform Committee staff report published this past February.

4. Re-evaluate all vaccines recommended by ACIP (the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) prior to adoption of evidence-based guidelines – Critics say the current vaccine system has not been adequately tested for safety, especially with children and the growing vaccine schedule (up to 73 doses by the time kids reach age 18 in the U.S.).

5. Study what makes some individuals more susceptible to vaccine injury – Considering the amount of catastrophic vaccine injury stories that have flooded the Internet and the aforementioned vaccine injury payout numbers, this is concerning for many parents.

6. Support fully informed consent and individual rights to refuse vaccination – While mandatory vaccine supporters push for herd immunity, people are being injured in the process, critics say.
As vaccine choice advocates argue, where there is risk, the freedom to refuse must be protected.
Health Issues Piling Up in American Kids – Are Vaccines to Blame?

One of the biggest obstacles to vaccine safety improvements is the ongoing argument between “pro-vaccine” and “anti-vaccine” sides. The argument has been simplified to discourage constructive debates.

But as Kennedy’s project notes, their new undertaking is not “anti-vaccine” but “pro-vaccine safety,” seeking to address controversial issues that haven’t seen the light of day in Congress due to stereotypes and misinformation.

For more info on the project (including alarming statistics on children’s health problems in the United States that have arisen “in lockstep” with the growing vaccine schedule), check out the full post from the World Mercury Project.

Science Reveals Young Brains Deranged by Radiation Exposure from Smartphones

Cellphones driving modern humans to the brink of insanity? New science reveals young brains DERANGED by cellphone radiation exposure

Friday, December 15, 2017

Source: Natural News | By Mike Adams



(Natural News) It’s fairly obvious to most intelligent people that modern society is going insane. It’s especially true among today’s hyper-connected youth who seem to be truly deranged and mentally ill, hyperventilating over every issue imaginable such as “net neutrality” or the election of Donald Trump. The lunacy of modern society has never been more extreme, and many of us who observe all this are wondering is there a common cause behind the insanity?

As it turns out, the mass poisoning of human brains with cellphone radiation has only been going on for a generation or so. It may be the common cause behind the insanity, and California health authorities have just confirmed this possibility by issuing new warnings about the adverse brain effects of cellphone radiation exposure.

“The research suggests cellphones could increase our risk for brain cancer and tumors, low sperm count, headaches, as well as impaired memory, hearing, and sleep,” reports CBS News / San Francisco. In other words, cellphone radiation has been found to directly interfere with normal brain function, leading people to demonstrate abnormal cognitive function. This, combined with the brain-warping harmful effects of social media, seems to have driven our society to the brink of runaway mental illness across the masses.

Just as the Romans destroyed their civilization with the help of lead poisoning in the water aqueducts, we may be destroying our own civilization by frying all our brains with cellphone radiation (and thereby driving our people insane).

Trump Accusers are Paid $750,000 by Democratic Donors

IT’S AN INDUSTRY: Thanks to Lisa Bloom We Now Know Trump Accusers are Paid $750,000 by Dem Donors to Say Trump Abused Them

It’s an industry.

Thanks to Lisa Bloom, spawn of Gloria Allred, we now know that Trump accusers are paid $750,000 by top Democrat donors to accuse the billionaire president of sexual abuse.

With Democrats it’s all about power by any means necessary.



Democrats paraded out three Trump accusers this week.
Someone needs to check their bank accounts.

Josh Caplan reported this earlier today by The Hill:

A well-known women’s rights lawyer sought to arrange compensation from donors and tabloid media outlets for women who made or considered making sexual misconduct allegations against Donald Trump during the final months of the 2016 election, according to documents and interviews.

California lawyer Lisa Bloom’s efforts included offering to sell alleged victims’ stories to TV outlets in return for a commission for herself, arranging a donor to pay off one Trump accuser’s mortgage and attempting to secure a six-figure payment for another woman who ultimately declined to come forward after being offered as much as $750,000, the clients told The Hill.

The women’s accounts were chronicled in contemporaneous contractual documents, emails and text messages reviewed by The Hill, including an exchange of texts between one woman and Bloom that suggested political action committees supporting Hillary Clinton were contacted during the effort.

Mainstream Media Whitewash Admits the U.S. Government Funds Islamic State But there is Much More

MSM Whitewash Admits US Funds ISIS But There Is Much More To The Story

DECEMBER 15, 2017



By Brandon Turbeville

Following on the heels of the pseudo-journalistic whitewash by the BBC regarding the UK government’s funding of terrorism in Syria, USA Today has released a similar piece revealing how the United States has armed ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Of course, USA Today claims that the arms which made their way from the United States and Saudi Arabia to the hands of ISIS were all unintentional, thus completing another whitewash of what has already been exposed numerous times in the alternative media.

Eyewitnesses Testify Vatican, Drug Cartels are Trafficking Children to Satan Worshipping Pedophiles Elites

Eyewitnesses Testify Vatican, Drug Cartels Trafficking Children to Satan worshipping pedophiles of royal families, corporate heads, politicians

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 By Judy Byington

See: http://beforeitsnews.com/contributor/pages/243/590/bio.html

According to victims and for big bucks, the Catholic Church and drug cartels regularly funnel children through international pedophile rings to Satan worshipping businessmen, politicians and members of European royal families.

Since May 2014 more than 34 eyewitnesses have given depositions to the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels about this childhood sexual abuse and forced participation in child sacrifices by these global elites of the Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult.

Five international court judges have considered evidence against Ninth Circle Cult members including the trial’s chief defendant, Pope Francis, plus former Pope Ratzinger and Queen Elizabeth. In 2013 the ICLCJ Court found Queen Elizabeth and Pope Ratzinger guilty of Crimes Against Humanity and issued arrest warrants against them.

A European mafia known as “Octopus” or Ndrangheta, was said to make considerable money by securing drugs and children for the upper echelons of Pope Francis’ Catholic and Queen Elizabeth’s Anglican Churches, royal family members and European, Canadian, Australian and US politicians and corporate heads. “The Catholic Church is clearly the largest baby trafficker in human history, making billions each year by selling Catholic newborns to orphanages, foster agencies and undisclosed parties” Antonio Barrero testified before five judges of the ICLCJ Court. “In Spain alone between 1940 and 1980, the Catholic Church reaped over $20 billion by trafficking more than 300,000 children.”

“The now Pope Francis organized the marketing of those more than 30,000 children of Argentine political prisoners” according to a ICLCJ Court witness identified only as Number 32. In the 1970s-1980s the witness was a former Argentine civil servant who was present in meetings between the now-Pope Francis and the Junta Military during Argentine’s Dirty War.

The Court recessed to do further research after the ICLC Court Chief Prosecutor professed a link between the British, Dutch and Belgian royal families and the disappearances and killing of Mohawk children at Queen Elizabeth’s Church of England or Anglican’s Brantford Indian Residential School in Ontario Canada. “The ‘Ndrangheta syndicate obtains its child fodder through its deep involvement with the child-snatching Roman Catholic Church and top Vatican officials” a Radical Party member of the Italian Parliament, Matteo Macceo, told Kevin Annett of the ICLCJ Court. “The modern Mafia are the same people who run the Catholic Church and Italian government. They’re indistinguishable. They’re all in the same club. Their main concern is their assets, which come from organized crime: drugs, arms dealing and human trafficking.”

“Crime pays and nothing pays as well as selling human beings, especially children” Annett said yesterday. “Last month, I was contacted by a retired Dutch lawyer whose former husband is a member of the criminal syndicate that provides the children and adolescents used in Ninth Circle ritualistic “hunting parties” in Belgium. I’ll call her Josephine. According to Josephine, in the Springs of 2000 and 2004 her ex-husband, along with Octopus members, provided ten children and adolescents who were then stripped naked, let loose, hunted down, killed and mutilated by wealthy men in forests near Oudergem, Belgium. She was told the victims were kids from the juvenile detention centers in Brussels. The global elite killers were thought to be members of the Ninth Circle and included Prince Friso of Holland, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Prince Albert of Belgium. Satan worshippers are known to think that certain numbers have mystical qualities. Notice their use of the number ten when choosing their victims. After they shot down the ten young ones they cut off the boys’ penises and held them up like trophies, cheering and applauding.”

According to last year’s ICLCJ Court findings, on Oct. 10 1964 Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip took ten children around the age of ten from the Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia. Their native parents haven’t seen them since. The Kamloops school closed in 1978, though a child mass grave site wasn’t discovered on the Kamloops school grounds until last year. Since 2008 Queen Elizabeth and the Canadian government have refused Annett’s ITCCS’s continuous requests for excavation of 34 child mass grave sites discovered on some of the 80 native residential school grounds across Canada.

Vatican and European Royal family members of the Ninth Circle were said to have scheduled child sacrifices for this August 15 and on the new moon in September at the Carnarvon Castle in Wales, Balmoral Castle in Scotland and Marie Reine du Monde Catholic Cathedral in Montreal Canada.

The court was presently in recess. Evidence was being gathered in hopes the five judges and 27 jury members could reach a verdict by this Fall. Because of the large amount of victims coming forward to testify about Ninth Circle activities more indictments were expected to follow. A third international court was planned for next year.

Last year’s ICLCJ Court found 40 global elites guilty in the disappearance of over 50,000 native Canadian children. A few days later Pope Ratzinger resigned from his office. Evidence presented at last year’s court could be found in Annett’s “Hidden No Longer” available for free here.

The ICLCJ International Court has over 450 Common Law Peace Officers in 13 countries, with 51 local chartered groups operating. Local organizing funds were available for common law groups wishing to apply.

Holy Spirituality with Pine Cone: Migrating Heavenly Butterflies

Holy Spirit Come and Fill this Place

https://youtu.be/UqU_32v0R_I



Welcome ~~~

Something ancient deeper inside me from many Earthling Dark-forest lifetimes seems to be surfacing for me to surrender to the ever-increasing Light of forgiveness discernment. 33 years devoted every day now, to remain true to myself, and surrender to the Light of Sovereign Spiritual Ascension seems to be coming to an exciting head, as we, all, perhaps become apprised of the nastiest preposterosities that, also have me caught up in this seeming double-bind now.

Survival supplies and, even freeze dried prepper-food urgency reminders, along with the constant awareness increasing about the super-ego evil complicity of the Collective mind-control unkind Consciousness, has me feeling Karmic-bad about feeling so many Lifetimes-bad. I don’t have to ‘force’ myself to look at all that is being revealed more, and more each new day leading us to Ascension, but, almost autonomically ‘welcome’ more Worldly Renouncing-seclusion increasing my need for, even more Enlightening-seclusion within.

As I am minimalizing bare-bones down to, very few possessions, and even moving further away from the, now horrifying glimpses of the tremendous suffering Collective mind control, I can see the more severe truth of our many millennial inability to care about myself, and others with innocent genuine empathy, seemingly rejected here. If the stress of all these horrific revelations wasn’t enough, with moving stress topping off more changes than ever, merely getting old, and my whole body screaming at me adds to the Collective Anti-trust pain/shame, that I think I am, actually beginning to get a bad inner attitude again.

Every ancient youth lifetime over, and over appearing as Light on Quarantine Earth seems to be waking up laser Awareness of what happens here when children become, mere collateral damage, as if old people, and children violate all Spurious motives of the Collective Vampiric Anti-trust Dark-complicit Mafia-mob Consciousness, that controls every facet of undead life in this Duality-poisoned Satanic Paradigm. Ego has discovered some more separation-fear, and Love-disbelief within the ancient innocence-lost beat down beat down beat down Quarantine Earth child-memory priceless part of all of us bubbling up within me now.

I want to blame myself for feeling, this bad about feeling all the ancient lifetimes bad, from watching my attitude dwindle-dim to, even acting like I have to put down-fight the, very Collective, when our separation Consciousness is just another Goliath metaphor-mouthful hard to swallow, so full of innocent children of Light, just like me. Double stress, triple trauma, quadruple violation, continual immoral soul-battering toward our Ascension-need to wake up Light here, may seem more than I can handle, so I surrender to the Light inside that Guides me, and remember the direction toward the Light within, is where this new repentance is leading me-less into Collective-dissolution Spirit-ness.

When I know I am enough, no ‘matter’ what, young, or old, enlightening the worst of the bad with gratitude, can reveal the best of the good, that no amount of lifetimes can beat, crumple, eat, or crush the Immortal Love Spirit within the infinite me of absolute you, or the infinite you of unborn me too. I am sorry for, almost losing myself under, all this stress, and it is wrong for me to blame the Collective, where I have been projecting my own ancient-youth self-blame denial, and feeling bad about our Collective feeling bad Toxic-shame.

No matter where I end up moving to, it’s a good thing that I-less will be there when Spirit-ness gets ‘wherever’, because, now it feels a little like someone says “Get down off the cross, we need the wood”. Thousands of pleasant days in a lovely row, I begin each post voice-over with “Welcome”, and end each post self-disclosure with a “Thank you”, as it surprises me every day, right in the middle of each guided-writing that, just expressing my feelings within forgiveness intention seems enough to change the whole World inside me, and accept everyone else going around this way, within me together.

~~~ Thank you

REPORTER: ‘Mark My Words, The House is Going To Be Rocked in The Coming 72 Hours’by Joshua Caplan

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com



Capitol Hill is on pins and needles amid a deluge of sexual harassment allegations. According to the Daily Caller‘s Luke Rosiak, one of the leading journalists investigating the Awan brothers’ scandal, things are about to take yet another dark turn.

“Congress’ human resources scandal is just getting started. I anticipate we will see the resignation of more than a dozen House members over harassment and secret settlements, and soon,” tweeted Luke Rosiak.

“Mark my words, the House is going to be rocked in the coming 72 hours. Tick Tock,” added Rosiak.
Recently, Rosiak has issued his own Hannity-style “Tick Tocks.”

Several hours later, Rosiak revealed Rep. Gregory Meeks ‘brokered a settlement in 2006 over allegations that the lawmaker fired a staffer in retaliation for reporting that she was sexually assaulted at a business tied to a campaign contributor.’

Rosiak reported:

Andrea Payne, then a congressional aide in Meeks’ Queens office, filed a complaint with the Office of Compliance, and Meeks fired her weeks later. He admitted that the cause of her termination did not have to do with the quality of Payne’s work.

“This is an action to recover for damages sustained by plaintiff when Representative Meeks violated her Constitutional rights by retaliating against her, and ultimately terminating her employment, because of her sexual assault lawsuit,” Payne’s attorneys wrote.Andrea Payne claimed she was sexually assaulted by the physical therapist working at Flowers Physical Therapy. Payne alleged the physical therapist tried to insert one of his fingers into her vagina even though according to her medical records her injuries were no where near her groin.

Rep. John Conyers’ lawyer Arnold E. Reed also hinted the damn may be about to break when it comes to future allegations.

“If people were required to resign over allegations, a lot of people would be out of work in this country including many members of the House, Senate and even the president,” Reed wrote prior to Conyers’ resignation.

72 Hour Countdown Until MASSIVE SCANDAL Breaks in Congress; 12+ Resignations Expected



http://halturnerradioshow.com

Congress’ human resources scandal is about to break wide-open and over a dozen members of the House of Representatives will likely resign within the next 72 hours.

I anticipate we will see the resignation of more than a dozen House members over sex-harassment and secret settlements.

Mark my words, the House is going to be rocked in the coming 72 hours. Tick Tock.

Last week news broke that Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) had made a settlement with a former congressional aide that he fired after she reported being sexually assaulted at the business of a major campaign donor.

The first congressmen to go down in the post-Weinstein era of sexual misconduct was Michigan Democrat Rep. John Conyers, who eventually resigned after accusations against him snowballed.
Other notable politicians on Capitol Hill caught up in sexual misconduct cases:

Democrat Rep. Alee L. Hastings (FL) — The Treasury paid $220,000 to settle allegations against him made by a former congressional staffer that claimed he “touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job.”

Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold (TX) — The congressmen announced on Thursday that he was "retiring" after former staffers accused him of making "sexually graphic jokes" and berating his aides. He previously settled a sexual harassment claim made by an employee in 2014.

Democrat Rep. Ruben Kihuen (NV) — Multiple women have accused the Pelosi-backed congressman of sexual harassment.

Democrat Sen. Al Franken (MN) — Franken announced that he would resign last week after multiple women accused him of sexual assault. Franken has still not resigned despite his promise to do so.

Republican Rep. Trent Franks (AZ) — Resigned after he reportedly made women uncomfortable by asking them to be a surrogate mother.My former colleagues in the Intelligence Community have told me that the "dirt" on some of these people is so scurrilous, they can't imagine how they ever got elected in the first place.

The Swamp is being drained!

List of Deep Underground Military Bases Located in the United States

A recap: Above and Below Ground threats to Americans

D.U.M.B.s
Deep Underground Military Bases in the united States


99% of these bases have already been destroyed by the Alliance. - OD

The world's most prominent researcher on Underground Military Facilities, Richard Sauder, Ph.D, told of an interesting story in his book Hidden In Plain Site:

“As it happens, after giving a public talk a couple of years ago I was approached by a man who had been a uniformed member of the United States Navy. We chatted for a while and when he mentioned that he had spent some time at China Lake my ears perked up. I asked him if there was an underground facility at China Lake. He said that indeed there is, and that it is impressively large and deep. I asked him if he had ever been in it, and he said that he had, though not to the deepest levels. I asked him how deep the deepest part extended. He looked at me soberly and said very quietly, “It goes one mile deep.” I then asked him what the underground base contains. He replied, “Weapons.” I responded, “What sort of weaponry?” And he answered without pausing, “Weapons more powerful than nuclear weapons.”

(Video) The Actual Truth of Why Pope Benedict Resigned



Published on Dec 20, 2016

This video (edited version) is intended to educate viewers of the circumstance surrounding the most controversial resignation of Pope Benedict the XVI. The Catholic church is a beacon of light and a source of hope to many of it's followers. The failings of it's hierarchy to uphold it's theocratic responsibility should serve as a warning to other Christian institutions of the grave consequences of their actions. (Original version published by Frontline)

Shortest office held by a pope before RESIGNATION in almost 600 years.
Popes with the shortest reigns:
Urban VII (September 15–September 27, 1590): reigned for 13 calendar days, died before consecration.
Boniface VI (April, 896): reigned for 16 calendar days
Celestine IV (October 25–November 10, 1241): reigned for 17 calendar days, died before consecration.
Theodore II (December, 897): reigned for 20 calendar days
Sisinnius (January 15–February 4, 708): reigned for 21 calendar days
Marcellus II (April 9–May 1, 1555): reigned for 22 calendar days
Damasus II (July 17–August 9, 1048): reigned for 24 calendar days
Pius III (September 22–October 18, 1503): reigned for 27 calendar days.
Leo XI (April 1–April 27, 1605): reigned for 27 calendar days
Benedict V (May 22–June 23, 964): reigned for 33 calendar days.
John Paul I (August 26–September 28, 1978): reigned for 33 calendar days.

Vatican City is the smallest country in the world.

Encircled by a 2-mile border with Italy, Vatican City is an independent city-state that covers just over 100 acres, making it one-eighth the size of New York’s Central Park. Vatican City is governed as an absolute monarchy with the pope at its head. The Vatican mints its own euros, prints its own stamps, issues passports and license plates, operates media outlets and has its own flag and anthem. One government function it lacks: taxation. Museum admission fees, stamp and souvenir sales, and contributions generate the Vatican’s revenue.

St. Peter’s Basilica sits atop a city of the dead, including its namesake’s tomb.
A Roman necropolis stood on Vatican Hill in pagan times. When a great fire leveled much of Rome in A.D. 64, Emperor Nero, seeking to shift blame from himself, accused the Christians of starting the blaze. He executed them by burning them at the stake, tearing them apart with wild beasts and crucifying them. Among those crucified was St. Peter—disciple of Jesus Christ, leader of the Apostles and the first bishop of Rome—who was supposedly buried in a shallow grave on Vatican Hill. By the fourth century and official recognition of the Christian religion in Rome, Emperor Constantine began construction of the original basilica atop the ancient burial ground with what was believed to be the tomb of St. Peter at its center. The present basilica, built starting in the 1500s, sits over a maze of catacombs and St. Peter’s suspected grave.

For nearly 60 years in the 1800s and 1900s, popes refused to leave the Vatican.

Popes ruled over a collection of sovereign Papal States throughout central Italy until the country was unified in 1870. The new secular government had seized all the land of the Papal States with the exception of the small patch of the Vatican, and a cold war of sorts then broke out between the church and the Italian government. Popes refused to recognize the authority of the Kingdom of Italy, and the Vatican remained beyond Italian national control. Pope Pius IX proclaimed himself a “prisoner of the Vatican,” and for almost 60 years popes refused to leave the Vatican and submit to the authority of the Italian government. When Italian troops were present in St. Peter’s Square, popes even refused to give blessings or appear from the balcony overlooking the public space.

At several times during the Vatican’s history, popes escaped through a secret passageway.

In 1277, a half-mile-long elevated covered passageway, the Passetto di Borgo, was constructed to link the Vatican with the fortified Castel Sant’Angelo on the banks of the Tiber River. It served as an escape route for popes, most notably in 1527 when it likely saved the life of Pope Clement VII during the sack of Rome. As the forces of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V rampaged through the city and murdered priests and nuns, the Swiss Guard held back the enemy long enough to allow Clement to safely reach the Castel Sant’Angelo, although 147 of the pope’s forces lost their lives in the battle.
