Barack Obama, Former CIA Agent

– by Deanna Spingola, 14 Mar. 2010

I recently had the pleasure of talking with Dr. James David Manning who has been ministering to the people of Harlem since 1981. He is now the Senior Pastor at ATLAH which stands for All the Land Anointed Holy, Manning’s inspired name for Harlem as of September 14, 1991.

Dr. Manning heads the Columbia Obama Treason Trial which is scheduled for May 14-19, 2010 at the ATLAH building at 38 West 123rd Street in ATLAH, New York, 10027. Unfortunately, the Department of Justice and the Supreme Court have failed in their duties to uphold the Constitution and address the legitimacy and other questionable issues surrounding the White House’s current resident. So, Dr. Manning, being a longtime resident of the Columbia University area, the school that Obama allegedly attended, began an intense investigation into Obama’s educational background and discovered some profound discrepancies.

for full article Barack Obama, Former CIA Agent | Deanna Spingola.

ok, before you go read the rest of that article i want you to take a look at what he’s standing in front of

Yes, that’s the dreaded denver airport

So the airport’s official website says that the name of the mural is called “Peace and Harmony with Nature”. Really? At the center of the piece, saddened children with extinct animal and plant species. In the background, a forest on fire and further back, a city on fire.

An interesting fact about that city is that it has been retouched and painted over many times during the years, as if it represents something important for the creators. It seems surrounded by an ill colored haze, as if it was attacked by a bio-chemical weapon.

One of the children holds a Mayan tablet depicting the end of civilization.

My Chat with an atheist

    stephenmcclenahan:
    you want him because he doesnt want you
  • 11:32

    like when mom tells you stay out of the cookie jar
  • 11:32

    Morrigan:
    I wanted him when he wanted me too, though…
  • 11:33

    stephenmcclenahan:
    if you act disinterested in him he may want you
  • 11:34

    Morrigan:
    Hmm… Not sure how to act disinterested without him forgetting about me…
  • 11:35

    stephenmcclenahan:
    hmmm, do you hang out at the same place? have same friends
  • 11:35

    Morrigan:
    Not really.
  • 11:35

    stephenmcclenahan:
    then i gues your out of luck
  • 11:35

    did you guys go out? how long has it been since you were with him
  • 11:36

    Morrigan:
    We dated for 7 months. We broke up last month. I’ve talked to him a couple times since then.
  • 11:36

    stephenmcclenahan:
    maybe you should focus on yourself, what do you want to do with your life? what are yo good at?
  • 11:37

    write paint music
  • 11:37

    Morrigan:
    I want to be an editor/author. I’m a decent wrtier.
  • 11:37

    *writer
  • 11:37

    stephenmcclenahan:
    heh,, you could help me edit my blogs, i’d love to put together a book
  • 11:38

    focus on that if it’s your passion, then someone who appreciates your pation will show up
  • 11:38

    do you believe in God at all?
  • 11:39

    Morrigan:
    No, I’m atheist.
  • 11:40

    stephenmcclenahan:
    ha ha i love atheists,,,,,,, well then you have to focus on making yourself the best self you can possibly be(here i would insert things about gods purpose for you or something but that doesnt work with the athesists)
  • 11:40

    you don’t have a higher power to look to for help,
  • 11:41

    Morrigan:
    Yeah.
  • 11:41

    stephenmcclenahan:
    it’s all on you,, so you need to just figure out what your strengths are and develope them
  • 11:42

    ‘an atheist should not have much trouble getting over a guy,,, you arent bogged down by the whole “he’s my soulmate” thing or “he’s my destiny” or some other kind of nonrealist delusion
  • 11:43

    Morrigan:
    True, but I still believe in love and I love him.
  • 11:43

    stephenmcclenahan:
    how can you believe in love, that doesnt make sense to a true rationalist sckeptic atheist type
  • 11:44

    as an atheist love should just be rationalised out as a simple body pleasure thing, you can find that anywhere
  • 11:44

    Morrigan:
    Not believing in God and believing in love have little to do with each other.
  • 11:45

    There are things I don’t understand, that hold wonder for me, that I would never even try to rationalize, but that doesn’t include a(ny) God.
  • 11:45

    stephenmcclenahan:
    methinks you’re not a true atheist, you just don’t want there to be a God so you can do whatever you want with out any higher judgement getting in the way
  • 11:46

    elevating love to something more than just getting your rocks off and feeling good is just as foolish as believing in the possibility of a higher power
  • 11:47

    to the ratiional atheist skeptic mind
  • 11:47

    Morrigan:
    So, I’m guessing you’re Christian, yes?
  • 11:48

    stephenmcclenahan:
    a christian would consider me a heretic
  • 11:48

    i would mark undecided if forced at gunpoint
  • 11:49

    Morrigan:
    I’m just saying, being an atheist has to do with only one thing. I do not believe in God. That’s it.
  • 11:49

    stephenmcclenahan:
    i definitly dont think we’ve gotten to this point by pure randomness
  • 11:50

    love doesnt exsist without there being a God, or a other side, or a magic force or something supernatural
  • 11:51

    Morrigan:
    Yes it does. Do soul mates? No. But love, while mysterious and not fully explainable, does.
  • 11:52

    stephenmcclenahan:
    if you say there is no God, there is no spirituality
  • 11:52

    everything is cut and dry science, with rational explanations
  • 11:52

    Morrigan:
    No, it’s not.
  • 11:53

    stephenmcclenahan:
    then there is no room for love, sweety,,, love would be a silly missconception of the deluded who believe in fairy tails
  • 11:54

    if you believe in spirituality then you believe ther is some form of “God” just not the way most religions describe it
  • 11:54

    Morrigan:
    Love does not have to be spiritual.
  • 11:55

    Love is being happy when you’re with someone. Preferring to fight with one person over kissing any other. Wanting what’s best for them, even when it’s not what you want.
  • 11:55

    stephenmcclenahan:
    love is supernatural, it is not a solid mathamatically describable thing
  • 11:56

    what you are describing is not love thats just feeling good
  • 11:56

    a person is pleasing to you fill your needs makes you feel better,, that’s not love
  • 11:56

    Morrigan:
    then what would you say love is?
  • 11:57

    stephenmcclenahan:
    you might as well ask me what God is… but i do know that love doesnt exist if one believes in a truly scientific rational view of reality
  • 11:58

    love is just as much a delusionary belief as God, to the truly rational scientific atheist mind
  • 11:59

    an atheist shouldn’t worry about love, unless you’re not truly an atheist, which is what i think the problem is
  • 12:00

    Morrigan:
    I am an atheist. The only thing that is “required” to be an atheist is the belief that there are no gods.
  • 12:00

    stephenmcclenahan:
    Look I’m in no way saying that i believe athiest rational thought is stupid or wrong…
  • 12:00

    Morrigan:
    Anything beyond that is not intrinsically atheistic. It may be common in atheists, but not 100%.
  • 12:00

    stephenmcclenahan:
    i wish i could feel that way,, life would be a hell of a lot easier
  • 12:01

    Morrigan:
    There are plenty of atheists who are irrational and unscientific.
  • 12:02

    stephenmcclenahan:
    now that, i feel is silly and self delusional
  • 12:02

    an atheist says ther is no God,, an agnostic says he doesnt know
  • 12:02

    Morrigan:
    True.
  • 12:03

    stephenmcclenahan:
    an agnostic can be irrational and scientific but not an atheist
  • 12:04

    an atheist is basically the same as a footstomping fundamentalist, both claiming to know the true nature of something that cannot be understood
  • 12:04

    I meant,,,,an agnostic can be irrational and UNscientific but not an atheist
  • 12:06

    Morrigan:
    There are many atheists who believe in love. Maybe they have a different definition of love than you, but that doesn’t mean they can’t believe there are no gods and believe in love.
  • 12:07

    stephenmcclenahan:
    sure it does, find me a famous phillospher who was a devout atheist and says he believes in love, it’s not gonna happen
  • 12:07

    there are many atheists who are actually agnostics
  • 12:10

    if God doesnt exist then neither does love,,, love is boiled down to just pleasure seeking with know “meaning” beyond that
  • 12:12

    don’t confuse God with how man has defined it
  • 12:13

    if you believe in Love, as in there is something “more” there, something special,, then perhaps that same thing is your understanding of God
  • 12:15

    the something “more” that is there, the something that is above or more special then just feeling good is unexplainable and magic,,,,,,, God
  • 12:15

    Morrigan:
    I can see we’re not going to agree on this issue.
  • 12:16

    stephenmcclenahan:
    anyone who tells you they know what God is, or they KNow God doesnt exist, is self delusional
  • 12:17

    i can back up both sides the rational phillisophical skeptic atheist view,,, and the believe in God view,, you are the one who wants to take a little from each side
  • 12:19

    i want to believe that love is special magical spiritual, but i don’t believe there might be the possibility of anything else special magical spiritual
  • 12:19

    that’s self delusional
  • 12:20

    a true atheist would laugh at you

Ron Paul and Freemasonry « Aftermath News. Ron Paul and Freemasonry April 22, 2008 · 863 Comments

ron-paul-g-town-masonic
Ron Paul speaking at Georgetown Jesuit University, alma mater of Carroll Quigley and Bill Clinton. Note the Freemasonic symbols on the wall behind him.

I know this is a taboo subject among Ron Paul supporters, of which I was one myself in the very beginning of his presidential campaign. And even if it is proven beyond any doubt that he is a freemason, many will just put it aside and pretend it doesn’t matter “because he is such a decent and honest man” etc. But many others are very curious to know what RP’s status is regarding Freemasonry because it does matter, and I fully intend to find out myself. Therefore, it is high time we started talking openly about it and try to ascertain the truth, one way or another.

I just happened to stumble across this comment over at the Daily Paul yesterday, and thought that I should share it with whoever is interested in knowing whether or not Ron Paul is a Freemason.

This does not prove anything in that regard, however it makes the probability that he is a Freemason very much higher since Eastern Star members are generally married to Freemason husbands, Rainbow girls are generally children of masons and because Ron Paul’s father was also a mason. And in addition, according to the comment, he “respects the organization”, which is wholly uncharacteristic of anyone who is supposedly fighting against the masonically-inspired New World Order. Ron Paul is also an unofficial member of the John Birch Society, which was founded by masons, funded by Nelson Rockefeller and run by Jesuit-trained Knights of Malta. In other words, the JBS is a gatekeeper organization, designed to control the opposition and make sure nothing substantial is ever done to impede the New World Order system which just keeps on rolling over humanity. How about the Jahbulon Bullshit Society for a more appropriate name?

Deepest part of the ocean Life!

The Mariana Trench is located in the Pacific Ocean, just east of the 14 Mariana Islands (11″21′ North latitude and 142″ 12′ East longitude ) near Japan.   As you probably already know, it is the deepest part of the earth’s oceans, and the deepest location of the earth itself.  It was created by ocean-to-ocean subduction, a phenomena in which a plate topped by oceanic crust is subducted beneath another plate topped by oceanic crust.

Fact-The Mariana Trench is 11,033 meters (36,201 feet), (6033.5) fathoms deep. The Pressure at the deepest part of the Mariana Trench is over 8 tons per square inch. The Mariana Trench is 2, 542 km (1,580 miles) long and 69 km (43 miles) wide.

Surreal experiences boost brain power.

Surreal experiences boost brain power
by Kate Melville

Psychologists at the University of California – Santa Barbara and the University of British Columbia have found that exposure to surrealism, by say, reading a book by Franz Kafka or watching a film by director David Lynch, enhances the cognitive mechanisms that oversee the implicit learning functions in the brain. The research was reported in the journal Psychological Science.

“The idea is that when you’re exposed to a meaning threat – something that fundamentally does not make sense – your brain is going to respond by looking for some other kind of structure within your environment,” said researcher Travis Proulx. “And, it turns out, that structure can be completely unrelated to the meaning threat.”

Greece in the eye of the storm

Antonis Davenellos, a member of International Workers Left (DEA) in Athens, describes the brewing protests as the government imposes harsh austerity measures.

Riot police didn’t hesitate to pepper-spray 88-year-old Manolis  Glezos, a living legend of the anti-Nazi resistance during the Second  World WarRiot police didn’t hesitate to pepper-spray 88-year-old Manolis Glezos, a living legend of the anti-Nazi resistance during the Second World War

GREECE’S SOCIAL democratic government announced “extra measures” on March 3 aimed at reducing the government deficit and raising money, mainly to service the public debt.

For working people, the measures were a shock: a freeze on pensions for the second year in a row, salary cuts for public employees that will also transfer immediately to the private sector, a freeze on hiring in the public sector, plus tax increases–including a sales tax hike that will raise the price of basic products like food, gas, etc.–which will further cut into the living standards of Greek workers.
