READ THIS! And TRY to understand it..


I am going to share something with you.. and hope NOT to write a book lol

I was raised as a Southern Baptist & forced to attend church pretty much against my will when I was younger. This had the effect of turning me sour on religion in general & especially so as far as organized religion is concerned b/c I saw so much hypocrisy in it, even as young as 14 or so..

That hypocrisy still exists today & likely even more so. To me the "organized" church has fallen into extreme disrepair as it seems to concern itself more with material things than spirituality.

I claimed to be an atheist for many years & eventually softened a bit to more an agnostic stance.

However, after my own job loss & bankruptcy story in 2003, the economic collapse of 2008, the scary creeping control of government tyranny, including the obvious militarization of every police force in the country I began to lose trust in everything that had made sense to me for years previously.

My life & views began to change independently.

I began to do a great deal of research on the history of religion.

It has ALWAYS been with us since the beginning of time.

As I studied, especially the ancient texts of the Sumerians, but also the book of Enoch & the bible itself, I came to realize there is simply too much there, too much information & recorded history, for me to be able to realistically deny the existence of "something", of spirituality, of a beginning somewhere in our distant past.

However it was the work of Sitchin, in large part, which began to mold my opinion(s) of the past.

Scientists now say that that the existence of other life forms in the universe is all but guaranteed by nothing other than the sheer numbers involved. Over time it became obvious to me that aliens likely do exist "somewhere out there". Many scientists also now suggest the possibility that more advanced civilizations could have, possibly, existed on earth long before our own time.

It didn't take much of a leap of faith for me to tie the two concepts together..

That "God" was, is and always will be an "alien being from elsewhere" (or God from heaven, if you prefer). Part of a race so much further advanced than ourselves as to make it quite impossible to consider the entity anything but a "God".

IMHO, Sitchin makes the case extremely well..

Similar to earlier authors such as Immanuel Velikovsky and Erich von Däniken, Sitchin advocated hypotheses in which extraterrestrial events supposedly played a significant role in ancient human history.

According to Sitchin's interpretation of Mesopotamian iconography and symbology, outlined in his 1976 book The 12th Planet and its sequels, there is an undiscovered planet beyond Neptunethat follows a long, elliptical orbit, reaching the inner solar system roughly every 3,600 years. This planet is called Nibiru (although Jupiter was the planet associated with the god Marduk inBabylonian cosmology).[5] According to Sitchin, Nibiru (whose name was replaced with MARDUK in original legends by the Babylonian ruler of the same name in an attempt to co-opt the creation for himself, leading to some confusion among readers) collided catastrophically with Tiamat (a goddess in the Babylonian creation myth the Enûma Eliš), which he considers to be another planet once located between Mars and Jupiter. This collision supposedly formed the planet Earth, the asteroid belt, and the comets. Sitchin states that when struck by one of planet Nibiru's moons, Tiamat split in two, and then on a second pass Nibiru itself struck the broken fragments and one half of Tiamat became the asteroid belt. The second half, struck again by one of Nibiru's moons, was pushed into a new orbit and became today's planet Earth.

According to Sitchin, Nibiru (called "the twelfth planet" because, Sitchin claimed, the Sumerians' gods-given conception of the Solar System counted all eight planets, plus Pluto, the Sun and the Moon) was the home of a technologically advanced human-like extraterrestrial race called the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth, who Sitchin states are called the Nephilim in Genesis. He wrote that they evolved after Nibiru entered the solar system and first arrived on Earth probably 450,000 years ago, looking for minerals, especially gold, which they found and mined in Africa. Sitchin states that these "gods" were the rank-and-file workers of the colonial expedition to Earth from planet Nibiru.

Sitchin wrote that Enki suggested that to relieve the Anunnaki, who had mutinied over their dissatisfaction with their working conditions, that primitive workers (Homo sapiens) be created by genetic engineering as slaves to replace them in the gold mines by crossing extraterrestrial genes with those of Homo erectus.[6][7] According to Sitchin, ancient inscriptions report that the human civilization in Sumer, Mesopotamia, was set up under the guidance of these "gods", and human kingship was inaugurated to provide intermediaries between mankind and the Anunnaki (creating the "divine right of kings" doctrine). Sitchin believes that fallout from nuclear weapons, used during a war between factions of the extraterrestrials, is the "evil wind" described in the Lament for Ur that destroyed Ur around 2000 BC. Sitchin states the exact year is 2024 BC.[8] Sitchin says that his research coincides with many biblical texts, and that biblical texts come originally from Sumerian writings.

The one thing that stopped my spiritual progression cold in it's tracks was, and always has been really, prayer.

Prayer to me has always seemed somewhat idiotic. Nothing more than a silly ancient superstition in which one is required to talk to themselves, while pretending to be speaking to some omnipresent superior alien being from afar.. the heavens.

Pretty ridiculous..

However.. in the end I decided so what? So what if it is stupid? Why not try it, in earnest, just to see WTF happens? What harm could come from it? It's a personal thing, I can do it in secret..

Jesus said: Mat_6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

And also..

Mat_17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Mat_21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

Mar_11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

My what a power this seems worthy of lusting after!

In part I convinced myself that perhaps prayer is a "communications ability / system" that the Anunnaki built directly into our human DNA..

So I did.. I tried it.. I began to pray. That was maybe 2 or 3 months ago..

I didn't pray for pips or wealth or power.. I prayed for the ability to effectively use the "gifts" that were bestowed upon humanity by God / the Anunnaki. For wisdom, understanding and knowledge.

The results of this impromptu experiment have been nothing short of amazing.

Since then, in a very short time, my trading has improved dramatically. My account has begun to go in the right direction, consistently, for the 1st time ever. Also the Mrs & I are buying a house in the country with 3 acres & lots of beautiful trees for next to nothing, with a loan with a 2% interest rate.. This alone promises to increase our wealth to a large extent.

Now.. we can call these coincidences just that.. or we can call these events the result of "the power of positive thinking".. or we can call it merely "good luck".. or we could, if we choose to do so, call it the power of prayer or the grace of God.

It really matters not what one chooses to call it.

Nuff said friends ;)

Thought *I* was supposed to be the #paranoid #conspiracy nut case.. Not the #AP CEO


In his Ohio state "voices" speech Barack Obama said..

“You’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all of our problems,” Obama told OSU graduates. “Some of these same voices do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.”


AP CEO calls government seizure of phone records unconstitutional, says chill already felt

WASHINGTON – The president and chief executive officer of The Associated Press on Sunday called the government's secret seizure of two months of reporters' phone records "unconstitutional" and said the news cooperative had not ruled out legal action against the Justice Department.

Gary Pruitt, in his first television interviews since it was revealed the Justice Department subpoenaed phone records of AP reporters and editors, said the move already has had a chilling effect on journalism. Pruitt said the seizure has made sources less willing to talk to AP journalists and, in the long term, could limit Americans' information from all news outlets.

Pruitt told CBS' "Face the Nation" that the government has no business monitoring the AP's newsgathering activities.

"And if they restrict that apparatus ... the people of the United States will only know what the government wants them to know and that's not what the framers of the Constitution had in mind when they wrote the First Amendment," he said.

In a separate interview with the AP, Pruitt said the news cooperative had not decided its next move but had not ruled out legal action against the government.
"It's too early to know if we'll take legal action but I can tell you we are positively displeased and we do feel that our constitutional rights have been violated," he said.

"They've been secretive, they've been overbroad and abusive — so much so that taken together, they are unconstitutional because they violate our First Amendment rights," he added.

Open letter to the @FederalReserve cc @PhiladelphiaFed @MinneapolisFed @DallasFed & even @ChicagoFed @stlouisfed


Quote from the USA Today"

"@FederalReserve #policy has driven interest rates & borrowing costs 2 record lows, which has allowed consumers 2 get their finances back on track"

U KNOW this is complete BS.. F'ing credit cards still want damn near 30% How TF do U think consumers can EVER get their finances back on track? ALL the major retailers credit card APRs START at 25% or more!

And yet..

"JCP Card holder for 20+ years

Helpful to 4 out of 4 people I have been a JCP card holder and avid shopper for over twenty years. Admittedly I spend much more on my Nordstrom card and about equally on my Macy's. I always pay my payment on time , and usually for far more than the minimum amount due. As a matter of fact I make it a rule to completely pay off this and the other two every January and July to avoid the interest incurring.

So imagine my surprise when in the midst of the December holidays I receive an email from GE Capital asking me to contact them about my account. Adding to my surprise is a representative informing me no payments had been posted since October. Keeping the rep on the line I retrieved my cash payment receipts. I relayed the numbers they asked for , and was told the payments were credited and they were sorry for the mistake. The following day I sent off the upcoming January 2013 pmt for the entire balance. One last thing to do in the new year.

So today 1/28/13 needing some new clothes before heading to Belize for the winter, I stopped by JCP. A little Leary after my recent experience I called from the car to make sure my payments had indeed been properly credited. The automated system assured me my next payment of $2.12 was due on 2/6/13. True an odd amount, but I assumed I must have just misread the amount by that amount when I paid off the balance. No big deal! After two hours and much trying on and many trips to stock pile my choices, I was ready to check out and head for Macy's.

The total came to around $1250.00 and I handed over my card. imagine my surprise when it was declined. As a frequent shopper and Platinum card holder, I know most of my local stores associates. Saying they'd been having issues all day, she swiped the card again and even again. To no avail. Perplexed the associate called GE. After a full five minutes a GE associate came on the line and said I had to pay the $2.12 in order to use my account!

So I paid the amount and we tried again - yep you got it , declined! The associate calls over her manager and we call GE and wait over ten minutes this time for a GE associate. We are told 'yes' they posted the $2.12 pmt, but my credit limit is $1245.00. The JCP associate aware of my actual credit limit of well over ten times that amount asks to speak to 'her' supervisor.

Any way twenty minutes later I am informed due to my not making a payment since October 2012 (yes we are back to that) my credit limit has been lowered!! I reiterated their earlier mishap with the Oct / Nov pmt AND I give them the check #, amount ( for the entire balance) and date THEY cashed it!

Once again they claim no payment had been made and I must call back with the info from the receipts I have at home. Disgusted I gave up! I would have walked away leaving the whole lot, but it truly wasn't the sales people's fault. Instead I paid by check and left.

Once home I called the brain trust that is GE Capitol, statements, receipts and bank info in hand. Oh yes, they found the payments, oh yes they apologized - BUT it will take awhile to restore my original credit limit AND report THEIR mistake to the credit reporting agencies!

I recorded this conversation and demanded they send me a corrected statement and a copy of their correction to the credit reporting agencies. I would have closed the account if that, too wouldn't look bad for ME!! So I will continue to be a JCP card holder - BUT I will NEVER use it OR shop at JCP again! Period! Hope the $25k average I spend there annually is better appreciated at Macy's & Nordy's!!"


No the f'ing PLAN is to keep as many [stupid] people trapped in debt as possible and to encourage MORE [stupid] people to BORROW FIAT that they can't AFFORD!

Here's a quote I see ALL THE TIME about YOUR policy goals.

What do I mean all the time?

When I just searched google for "encourage borrowing and spending" I got "About 533,000 results (0.30 seconds)"!


"On Wednesday, the Fed maintained its plan to keep short-term interest rates at record lows at least until unemployment falls to 6.5 percent. And it said it will continue to buy $85 billion a month in Treasury and mortgage bonds [to MONETIZE the debt!]. The bond purchases are intended to keep long-term borrowing costs down and encourage borrowing and spending." -Emphasis added

Bring back USURY LAWS if you want to help the consumer! Cap interest rates at the #FED funds rate + no more than 5% !

IF SOME people (the STUPID ONES!) are too great a RISK for a LENDER to bear then DON'T LOAN THEM FIAT!

If YOUR #economy didn't depend entirely on DEBT that wouldn't be a #problem!

Many of us, trust me on this, HATE what you and our kleptocratic government have done and are doing. I'm sure you ALL understand why we feel that way.

You have single handedly DESTROYED all trust and confidence in REALITY. You, the Federal Reserve Bank, the United States government, and a complicit main stream media, have completely DISMANTLED our capitalist system.

You support consumer debt payments with tax payer subsidized "safety net" programs [ie; those Americans fortunate enough to still be a wage slave get to pay for the food, housing, credit cards, and everything else, for those who are fortunate enough to no longer live in the matrix.]

47 MILLION Americans are on food stamps!

shadowstats unemployment rate is around 23% !

Banks are still [now legally!] LYING about their balance sheets [Even according to the BIS!] -Bloomberg

And the Stock market is at all time highs???

How much longer can the Fed prop up stocks?

Adam Shell, USA TODAY5:50 p.m. EDT May 2, 2013

A big driver in the stock market's multiyear bull run is the market-friendly stimulus provided by the nation's central bank. But Wall Street wonders if the Fed can keep propping the market up forever


This stuff isn't really that hard to figure out and there is MUCH MUCH MORE further down the rabbit hole.


Stop the LIE!

Have a need to understand WTF is going on? This may help.. @FederalReserve #policy


[Excerpted from]

Book Review: David A. Stockman – The Great Deformation – The Corruption of Capitalism in America

The Fed’s policy of cheap and then ever-cheaper credit has not only destroyed the free market by constantly distorting price signals, encouraging reckless debt accumulation and rewarding financial speculation (and consequently widening income and wealth gaps, as Stockman illustrates aplenty), it has thoroughly corrupted the political process as well. Stockman portrays a political system that, courtesy of the Fed’s cheap credit policies and interest rate repression, is now chronically incapable of living within its means, and is thus easy prey for hordes of crony capitalists – from the healthcare industry and the military-industrial complex to the ‘labor aristocracy’ of the united autoworkers union to the ‘too-big-to-fail’ banks, private-equity shops and hedge funds that play the system for a quick profit.

What some in #congress thought about #usury in 1892



Thursday, March 24, 1892


We demand an industrial currency that shall overthrow interest, for to our mind, in the language of another—

Interest is usury.
Usury is robbery.
Usury pays no taxes.
Usury posseses no soul.
Usury never works.
Usury produces nothing.
Usury consumes everything
Usury pays no doctor bills.
Usury never goes on the battlefield.
Usury lives in fine houses that labor builds.
Usury wears fine clothes that the laborer fashions.
Usury concentrates wealth.
Usury undermines free government.
Usury mocks at liberty.
Usury makes the rich richer.
Usury makes the poor poorer.

Usury mocks God, wrecks manhood, destroys womanhood, stifles childhood, and robs humanity. It is the Upas tree that is poisoning the whole
fabric of free American Institutions. It is the giant of giant robbers, threatening every phase of our national life and demanding toll on every dollar's
worth of production. Let the ungodly thing be banished from our midst and
labor be brought at once to the front.

Herein lies the whole contention.

Mr. Speaker, we lay it down as a proposition that can not be
successfully controverted, and one that the Eleventh Census
corroborates, that high interest, high transportation, and high
tariff ha\^ greatly impoverished one section of country while
they have built up another; that banks, railroads, and manufacturers are controlling the distribution of wealth in this country
to-day. Let facts be submitted to a candid, thinking people.

Here's the deal with #ObamaCare


A lot of, uninsured, people don't really WANT to use the healthcare system in the good ole #USA because it COSTS too much!

I know someone who recently had an infected neck gland & was suffering from pain and swelling. They had no health #insurance and visited a local clinic to get what was, obviously to any fool, needed. Some antibiotic.

This person refused the doctors efforts to do do a multitude of "testing" & x-rays only to still end up with a bill for $1,000.00. For a 5 minute visit with a doctor and some antibiotic!

As I have always said.. People want access to affordable health CARE / NOT un-affordable health INSURANCE.

So how is our kleptocratic #government planning to address the issue of high health care cost? By forcing every #American to purchase an insurance policy. Either from a #private retail business or from a government exchange.

Now while I understand that those elite who #RULE us may think $1,000.00 (of worthless PAPER #FIAT) may be very affordable access to health care I also know many people who would strongly disagree with that analysis.

However, even given the example above, $1,000.00 out of pocket isn't going to destroy most people.. It wouldn't be fun, exactly, but likely not too devastating..

Hell.. say a person gets really sick 4 times a year and pays $1,000.00 each time that's 4 grand a year for health care..

Now with this health INSURANCE SCAM the government is going to transfer $20,000.00 or more a year from YOUR pocket straight to the bottom line of publicly traded insurance companies.

It is now and always has been in my opinion a massive #bailout of insurance companies. The #fear of the entire F.I.R.E. #economy collapsing is plenty of motivation for the government to STEAL our worthless fiat to prop it all up.. Add the Federal Reserve bank and a complicit United States Supreme Court into the mix and we are most definitely screwed.. IMHO

I'm sure you already saw this..

(CNSNews.com) – In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.

Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.

The IRS's assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.

I did a previous post with details on how to get around the law..

You don't have to pay for #ObamaCare OR pay the damn tax..
