  4. Mexico border wall: Trump defends emergency

    Some people seriously believe that Trump was elected by racist, misogynist, Nazi's, people with no compassion for others etc.. and that may be true in a handful of cases. But the majority of those that voted for him did so because he promised to fix broken things such as our southern border. Illegal immigration in this country is broken. When you have 1 in 29 people in this country that is illegal, there is a problem that needs to be fixed. The Democrats figured out long ago to let the illegals flood the state ensuring it would stay red. Now when Trump wants to fix illegal immigration those who scream the loudest are the ones who have allowed this to happen. https://www.latimes.com/projects/la-pol-ca-california-voting-history/ California’s Latino and Asian populations boomed in the 1990s and the growing segment of voters were turned off by the Republican Party’s hard-line stance on immigration. After the party closely tied itself to Proposition 187, a controversial California ballot measure that denied public services to people in the country illegally, Republicans struggled to win back the state's immigrant population. Democratic candidates have won decisively in every election since 1992 by performing well in the most populous areas. Despite failing to win the presidency, Hillary Clinton won a higher percentage of votes than any candidate since Franklin D. Roosevelt. The United States sends election monitors around the world to help discourage fraudulent balloting. But, here at home, it has largely turned a blind eye to the possibility that fraudulent voting by non citizens could influence the outcome of an election. Our voter registration system is susceptible to abuse by non citizens. In addition, non citizens and illegal aliens are counted when apportioning congressional districts and when allocating state electors under the Electoral College. This means nand exert an indirect influence non citizens play a role in determining how many congressional representatives a state has and exert an indirect influence on presidential elections. U.S. Elections Are Vulnerable to Non citizen Voting Fraud Mass immigration has had a significant effect on American electoral politics. Despite the fact that it is a crime for aliens to vote in federal elections, non citizens and illegal aliens are counted when apportioning congressional districts. 1 This means that areas with large numbers of illegal alien residents gain additional representatives in Congress. https://www.fairus.org/issue/societal-impact/noncitizens-voting-violations-and-us-elections You tighten the border up, and you slow illegal immigration as well as the flow of drugs into this country and while Trump is trying to do something about a broken system the Democrats are fighting him all the way on this. It's all about the votes. This is why Sanctuary cities were set up imo, as well as throwing the term "racist" out there for wanting voter ID's. It is all by design. This should show you what is clearly wrong with America: A federal grand jury is investigating a Massachusetts judge after she allegedly allowed an illegal immigrant to escape an arrest by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. https://www.leoaffairs.com/massachusetts-judge-under-investigation-after-letting-illegal-immigrant-escape-out-back-door/ And then we have people saying that Trump is turning away people who are legitimately seeking asylum: About 70% of illegal aliens who claim asylum never bother to show up for their court cases. They simply disappear "into the shadows" once they are released into the population. And no wonder, given that courts have found 80% of asylum cases to be bogus to begin with. https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/07/lib_study_illegals_miss_court_dates_due_to_confusion_mental_illness_bad_bus_service.html The law is changing so you must apply for asylum at your countries embassy, not the U.S border. A good start.
  5. Opening gambits in EU / UK exit negotiations;

    BBC one at 10pm coverage starts. The low turnout might be a factor. 36% turnout. (estimated/not confirmed) which reduces the likelihood. 30% to 35% would be my guess. but i hope your right. and come the end of the night your in the money.
  6. Neither are a living being. Which I figured was obvious.

  9. While the Bigfoot Hunters were marching around in a Camden County game park consisting of 4gen regrowth and bemoaning "unexplored" and paying a suburban hunting club as 'guides". I was taking Mike Argano from the BFRO every place in the Pine Barrens he wanted to go. Free of charge. I just wanted to exercise my camera. Most people don't realize that every place in the U.S is known by somebody and many of us will take you someplace without looking for monetary gain or to run a con. I happily take Jersey Devil and Bigfoot hunters out just for the sake of a good hike or horseback ride. I'm sure there is a decent Native who would do the same thing there.

  11. Mankind

    That is a rather absolute statement, and I very cautious when presented with an either/or proposition. QUESTION: if all life is sacred, including animals, plants, microbes and viruses, is it a sacrilege to eat, or to eliminate dangerous pathogens? And the use of the term 'sacred', could you explain what you are referring to when using that word?
  12. I understand that. You say that "an unfertilized is nothing, just like a tissue dwelling sperm", they can be compared, so what is it you say can't be compared?
  13. Russia launched a nuclear-powered icebreaker on Saturday, part of an ambitious programme to renew and expand its fleet of the vessels in order to improve its ability to tap the Arctic’s commercial potential. The ship, dubbed the Ural and which was floated out from a dockyard in St Petersburg, is one of a trio that when completed will be the largest and most powerful icebreakers in the world. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/may/26/russia-launches-new-nuclear-powered-icebreaker-in-bid-to-open-up-arctic Video: https://news.sky.com/video/russia-launches-huge-nuclear-icebreaker-11728744

  16. Mysterious Stone Archway a Time Portal?

    i'm not looking for a natural arch, a "doorway" as Quinn describes it is a unnatural 90 degree structure. I also know where it is location. I no longer need directions.
  17. Nyhellenia and vampires, reflected in Bible and Norse sagas Continuing the previous case of VAMPÍRA in Nyhellenia's teachings, here will be shown that the textual context of that episode is known also from Christian Bible and one Norse saga. 1. Similarity of language to Christian Bible. Isaiah 34:14 contains a condemnation of Edom nation whose language parallels to high degree that of OLB's 034-037, including a reference into a vampire-alike character: "But hawks and hedgehogs will possess it; owls and ravens will nest in it. [Nyhellenia's owl] God will stretch out over it a measuring line, and chaos, [Wralda, supreme being] and plumb lines of emptiness, and its nobles. [Nyhellenia speaks to princes, also below] They will name it “No Kingdom There,” and all its princes will come to nothing. Thorns will grow over its palaces, ["living in temples and holes"] nettles and brambles its fortresses. It will become a haunt for jackals, a home for ostriches. And desert creatures will meet with hyenas, ["certain kind of people is wandering the earth ... gnawing in the dark" and goat-demons will call out to each other. [Sacred goats of Norse, Finns (Bock piru) and Hindus, see more here] There also Liliths will settle, [= VAMPÍRA, evil spirit, witch, screech owl; lilītu spirits of Sumer] and find for themselves a resting place. Owls will nest there, lay eggs, [Nyhellenia's owl and eggs, see also below] hatch them, and care for their young under the shadow of their wings; yes indeed, vultures will gather there, each one with its mate.” (source) Thus we can say that Isaiah 34:14 and OLB 034-037 are related texts. The situation is made more complicated by the fact that both may be derivatives of Sumerian texts, just as Wodin's tale can be read from Sumerian Kings List and the peculiar language of Odin's chariots etc echoes that of the Bible (link). This larger contextual background means we can't just directly conclude that Bible →OLB, or that OLB →Bible. As far as we know, it's more like SKL + Sumerian mythos → Bible, OLB, Norse sagas, Finnish legends, Gnosticism etc. In late 3rd century Latin vulgate version the Lilith is called "lamia" (source). In turn from these developed the empusa: "Late Antiquity, the empousai has been described as a category of phantoms or spectres, equated with the lamiai and mormolykeia, thought to seduce and feed on young men. (source). This is contemporary with the Latin vulgate lamia and already has the emp/vamp basic form. Could this Greek empusa have given birth to western vam~ prefix in the vampira? The OLB episode plays out in Greece, after all. The ubara, upir, piru etc. would constitute the eastern branch of Levant, Balkans and Eastern Europe. 2. Similarity of language to Norse sagas and Finnish lore While clearly related into Christian writing above, the piece also directly refers into Norse saga tradition of Bósa Saga ok Herrauðs and key theological elements of Finnish heathenry. Please compare: "When the dignitaries realized they had missed their target, they started accusing her [Nyhellenia] and said she had bewitched the folk. But our folk, and the good Greeks, asserted everywhere that it was slander. Once they came and asked: ‘So if you are not a sorceress, then what is the purpose of the eggs you always have with you? Minerva answered: ‘These eggs are the symbol of Frya's counsels, in which our future, and that of all humankind, lies concealed. Time must hatch them and we must protect them from being damaged.’" (source) "Bosi asked whether she knew, - "how to get to the vulture's egg, which we foster brothers have been sent after, which has gold letters written outside. ... Here in the forest stands a great temple. King Harek owns it, who rules here over Bjarmaland. The god called Jomali ['god', angel Jomiel]. There is much gold and treasure. The king's mother, who is called Kolfrosta, is in charge of the temple. She is made strong by witchcraft so that nothing takes her by surprise. She knows beforehand with her magic that she will not live out this month, and so she traveled in the shape of an animal east to Glaesir Plain and took away Hleidi, the sister of King Godmund, and intends that she shall be one of her priestesses. ... Under this vulture is the egg, which you are sent to get. ... It has been said, that inside the vulture's egg, which they brought from Bjarmaland, was found a little snake, golden in color, and King Herraud gave it to his daughter as a teething gift. ... Herraud vowed solemnly that he would only marry Thora, his daughter, to the man who dared to go into her bower and destroy the snake. But no one dared to do that until Ragnar, son of Sigurd Hring. So Ragnar was afterward called Lodbrokar, or “hairy britches” and he took the name from his clothes, which he had made, when he conquered the snake." (source) In the Norse saga narrative the roles have been flipped; priestesses with eggs are the bad guys to be punished, the egg gift is carelessly given to a toddler and eventually the contents destroyed in a high fantasy tale. We can only guess if the "snake" was a cultural memory of more ancient worship of snakes as wisdom symbols and a fertility symbol (Frya as Freia). For Gnostics, for example: "In Gnosticism, a serpent biting its tail symbolized eternity and the soul of the world. The Gnostic Pistis Sophia (c. 400 AD) describes the ouroboros as a twelve-part dragon surrounding the world with his tail in his mouth." (source) If the Norse and Finns knew of the it (image, image), could Frisians have too? In Finnish lore the world is born out of an egg, both in the Finland-Swedish Bock saga where the description is very geology alike in tone and one in SKVR poetry where the description is higly theological/mystical. Therein main god lies in the primaeval sea of cosmos, with a bird laying an egg on his knee. The egg tumbles down into the water, breaks and of it becomes the planet earth, skies and all who dwell therein (Christian creation story is a truncated variant of this core myth). Of note here is that both Finnish traditions directly connect into Freia (frö 'seed') or a seed-goddess, thus the thematic connection to Frya's eggs in OLB. Thus in light of Norse and Finnish similarities, we can't reduce the OLB account into a mere loan of Bible or 1732 AD story of Arnold Paole the vampire. Dutch forgers of the 1840s would have had access to most of these sources, save perhaps some of the more obscure stuff like the Finnish connection to Freia or Freia-alike goddess. The resulting chapter would be a literary masterpiece, combining Biblical language, Norse sagas, Gnostical allusions and contemporary horror stories. Personally, I still think the SKL proof of antiquity (link) overrides all this.

    Not find it?? I show me finding it in the video... pretty clear actually. Begins at 6:18 timestamp in video
  19. US apparently readying for Iran attack

    Dude, please. If you ask for proof of anything in the way Palladin did, you dont believe it.The very notion someone calls for proof when reading the statement 'Bolton is a warmongerer' is rather telling. One must be completely unhinged with reality to ask that question in earnest. Not to mention the talk about Dolphin Badger hybrids, my god. Oh and what 'unproven' statements were those, pray tell.. called out by whom? You cant mean the hammerclaw exchange, surely..
  20. Maybe you should learn to read and speak ancient Greek and learn all the nuances. You would probably feel the same way. Greek leans more towards the Indo-Iranian end of things then it does the Indo-European. Why Americans have destroyed every religion and philosophy they put their hands on is because in their arrogance they never bothered to learn the original language the works they interpret were written in. @jaylemurph and I have both agreed on this and stated this fact for over 10 years here.

    Bolton was even dancing with people whom state department listed as terrorists. His warmongering quality is unquestionable and he might be worlds authority on that, with Elliott Abrams, i have to mention him to because of democratic cruelty and murders
  23. Abortion exceptions

    I'm not sure what this is suppose to show me or what you are trying to assert? The U.S has a population of 327 million. After getting rid of the 15-19 we had around 600k abortions. 65 percent of unintended pregnencies ending in abortion makes sense, isn't that the point of abortions ? Someone I know got pregnant while on birth control. You got to be more clear on your point I'm confused ?
