I wouldn't worry, Ford. 

If you look at his ten posts, he says nothing interesting or intelligent.  He provides no support for his bullshit...i.e. links, quotes, sources.

He is just sounding off to convince himself that he is right, the world is just as advertised on TV, and everyone else is an idiot.

He's your typical, middle class American with no f**king idea what is going on.


He has tried to trash your thread because he envies your insight.  He's not smart enough to understand symbolism or metaphors.

He wishes that he could make some of the brilliant connections you have shown in this thread.  But, he's not smart enough, so he decided to rank on you instead.

Unfortunately for him he isn't even smart enough to do that with any style.

Thanks for the props. I haven't posted regularly in this thread for a bit, i've been working on the blog. Here is a recent post.

Did you guys know that the federal reserve puts out comic books from time to time? I found this one interesting.



We have a group of multi-national people looking on and smiling at the dime that says E Pluribus Mazuma. It took a while to translate. The E Pluribus is latin, and it means OUT OF MANY. Mazuma is Yiddish, and it means cash, or fixed currency. So..... OUt of Many Money? Doesn't make much sense. How about "Money out of Many"? Or, "Money out of many cultures." WE have the message now translated on dime, with the last word being the many nations represented below the dime. They appear to be uniting under the dime, so my final translation is One (unified) money out of may nations, or one world currency.

I know that 'One out of Many' is itself a phrase that crops up time and time again when looking at Illuminati stuff, so it would make sense that they would use a derivation of it to signify their plans for the world's money.

Holy cow! That is crazy stuff. I always enjoy seeing what new stuff is going to show up here.

What on earth is with the space connection to the Fed? The second one has the path of an orb and the path of a crescent being intersected by...a spaceship. In the dome of the spaceship you can see people in front of a monitor...maybe the people in pictured in the first illustration?

I find this stuff fascinating. What year were these two published?

I can't reall post the cover to this one here, it is a bit risque. A robe wearing man with a necklace portraying an eye in a pyramid is menacing two chained scantly clad females.

Thanks for posting that. I don't own the comic and I didn't know what the story was. Remember, in pop culture things almost always have two meanings and the different cultures standing under one dime has a meaning that is pretty easy to figure out.

Couple of thoughts:

go to www.bigheadpress.com and find some thoughtful, libertarian comics

Alan Moore, the man that brought us "V for Vendetta" and "the Watchmen" and "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" is an occultist and if you read Watchmen the end is reminiscent of Project Bluebeam.

Anyone else see the sinister message in Ben 10 as a front for Scientology, or transformation of humans into demons as reported by ex-illuminati members?  Google svila confession on illuminati to find out Illuminati's entrenchment in Hollywood.

Thanks for posting that. The Probability Broach was incredible. For those who haven't read it it tells the story of a man travelling to another dimension where Shays rebellion succeeded.

I knew about Alan Moore, but what is Ben 10?

These are images from Spider-Man issue #16 in November 1991 which shared a crossover storyline with X-Force issue 3.  The storyline revolves around Juggernaut and Black Tom who have captured the World Trade Center and the heads of many giant companies for the purposes of blackmailing.  X-Force arrives and goes through the building whereupon Black Tom tells them that they have explosives through out the building. Back outside Spider-Man arrives to see about helping the hostages, but before he can get in part of the World Trade Center explodes.

Miraculously nobody is killed or even injured by the top floors of the World Trade Center being blown away, but Black Tom is missing...Juggernaut rams into the World Trade Center. The entire thing falls down on Spider-Man and X-Force. Again miraculously nobody is even scratched for no apparent or logical reason. Spider-Man says that he will lead them to victory.

Bizarrely, the Juggernaut was later shown having joined a clandestine criminal organization known the New World Order. As a part of this network he was first seen working for the Red Skull although the full extent of their operations is unknown. Working with the NWO has twice brought the Juggernaut head-to-head with the Hulk and helped earn him enough money to temporarily cure Black Tom of his wood mutations. The Juggernaut continued as a member of the New World Order up until it's apparent demise.

Weird coincidence or something else?  :-\

ESP or foreknowledge? I am leaning towards ESP, but with the references to the NWO I don't know. Maybe the writer was just familiar with the NWO conspiracy and wrote a story where he was trying to warn people. You say the whole thing came down?

The writer was a Todd McFarlane who left Marvel not long after after issue #16 with some other artists to form Image Comics. He later published the occult-themed Spawn in 1992.  I don't think the whole WTC came down but it was certainly left in ruins as in the following issue of X-Force #4, Spider-Man and X-Force continue to fight Juggernaut in the wreckage of the World Trade Center, until Deadpool appears and teleports Juggernaut away. 

One reference to Juggernaut being linked with the group New World Order is Incredible Hulk #456. In a brief appearance the Juggernaut is seen sitting at a desk with the New World Order who have learnt that Apocalypse is manipulating the Hulk's mind in an attempt to turn him into the horseman War.  Later the HQ of the NWO is destroyed by Apocalypse...maybe a reference to the apocalypse   :-\

While it is certainly possible, what leads me to believe it is not conditioning is that if it were Juggernaut would have been a member of Al Queda or Hamas and not the the NWO.

From Swamp Thing #24 1983. The Swamp Thing takes on global warming.

 


Swamp Thing - You KNow... I am not.....lying. You know... The green... did not concieve this madness.

Floronic Man- It isn't madness!! The plants will pour out oxygen and all the animals will die. Only we shall remain. Don't you see? The only way!

I bought Spiderman #16 yesterday. It showed Cable and some other heroes walking through a darkened WTC trying to find a way out!

It was interesting Spiderman and X force went after Juggernauts eyes, which seems to be a metaphor for the all seeing eye. And Spidey says "You can't stop him, you can only slow him down."

Just when I think there is nothing else to be found, something like this pops up.

It's from Uncanny X men #189, 1984. A time traveller from the 21rst century reflects on seeing the WTC burn.

I found something strange. This is from Wonder Woman #126 dated October 1997.

As readers of comics know, the comics actually go on sale a couple months before the date on the cover. And this one went on sale three days before the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Byrne

Interesting connection...John Byrne, who made the Wonder Woman comic, co-wrote many issues of the "Uncanny X-Men"... but left after issue 149.

Quote
The “Byrne Curse”

Byrne has referenced his alleged tendency to “predict” real-life events with his comic books, calling it the “Byrne Curse.”[25] In a letter to Skeptic magazine, he noted a 1977 issue of Marvel Team-Up depicting a blackout in New York, with a real-life blackout occurring the month the issue went on sale, six months after he had drawn it; an issue of Uncanny X-Men depicting a major earthquake in Japan, which again occurred in real life the month the comic was released; and an issue of Wonder Woman in which the death of the superheroine, who is an Amazon princess named Diana, is presented on the cover as a newspaper front page with the headline “Princess Diana Dies.” The issue went on sale on a Wednesday, and Britain’s Diana, Princess of Wales was killed in an accident three days later.[26]

What's up with these guys?  Byrne's X-Men co-writer, Chris Claremont, wrote #189.  Apparently, both of these guys are "uncanny".

Did everyone notice that one of the instances of precognition, Byrne referenced in his letter to Skeptic was an issue of The Uncanny X-Men(Japanese earthquake)?  He probably worked with Claremont on that issue.

Thanks, Corbett.  The PKD quote is from a great essay...

How to Build a Universe That Doesn't Fall Apart Two Days Later
http://deoxy.org/pkd_how2build.htm

Quote
I wrote over thirty novels and over a hundred stories, and still I could not figure out what was real. One day a girl college student in Canada asked me to define reality for her, for a paper she was writing for her philosophy class. She wanted a one-sentence answer. I thought about it and finally said, "Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away." That's all I could come up with. That was back in 1972. Since then I haven't been able to define reality any more lucidly.

Quote
The bulk of the messages elude our attention; literally, after a few hours of TV watching, we do not know what we have seen. Our memories are spurious, like our memories of dreams; the blank are filled in retrospectively. And falsified. We have participated unknowingly in the creation of a spurious reality, and then we have obligingly fed it to ourselves. We have colluded in our own doom.

And—and I say this as a professional fiction writer—the producers, scriptwriters, and directors who create these video/audio worlds do not know how much of their content is true. In other words, they are victims of their own product, along with us. Speaking for myself, I do not know how much of my writing is true, or which parts (if any) are true. This is a potentially lethal situation. We have fiction mimicking truth, and truth mimicking fiction. We have a dangerous overlap, a dangerous blur. And in all probability it is not deliberate. In fact, that is part of the problem. You cannot legislate an author into correctly labelling his product, like a can of pudding whose ingredients are listed on the label... you cannot compel him to declare what part is true and what isn't if he himself does not know.

It is an eerie experience to write something into a novel, believing it is pure fiction, and to learn later on—perhaps years later—that it is true. I would like to give you an example. It is something that I do not understand. Perhaps you can come up with a theory. I can't.

In 1970 I wrote a novel called Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said. One of the characters is a nineteen-year-old girl named Kathy. Her husband's name is Jack. Kathy appears to work for the criminal underground, but later, as we read deeper into the novel, we discover that actually she is working for the police. She has a relationship going on with a police inspector. The character is pure fiction. Or at least I thought it was.

Anyhow, on Christmas Day of 1970, I met a girl named Kathy—this was after I had finished the novel, you understand. She was nineteen years old. Her boyfriend was named Jack. I soon learned that Kathy was a drug dealer. I spent months trying to get her to give up dealing drugs; I kept warning her again and again that she would get caught. Then, one evening as we were entering a restauant together, Kathy stopped short and said, "I can't go in." Seated in the restaurant was a police inspector whom I knew. "I have to tell you the truth," Kathy said. "I have a relationship with him."

Certainly, these are odd coincidences. Perhaps I have precognition. But the mystery becomes even more perplexing; the next stage totally baffles me. It has for four years...

I've got to scan in a page or two from Wolverine: Agent of Shield and The Invisibles. These comic book companies who were entirely beholden to the feds for their content in the 50's and 60's under the Comics Code Authority, are all but training kids to believe in elite secret societies (populated by reptilians of course - see 'The Hand', HYDRA, and so forth), and then of course they grow up and it's all plausible deniability as regards real clubs, agencies, and fraternities. "What, you haven't grown out of that YET?"





stat·ism /ˈsteɪtɪzəm/
1. the principle or policy of concentrating extensive economic, political, and related controls in the state at the cost of individual liberty.

I read the Philip Dick essay, it was fascinating! If he were still alive, he would be a synchromystic blogger.

Absolutely. I read one of his lectures a few years ago and even though I was far from awake at that time I recognized it to be dealing with an entire pocket of reality which I could but dimly grasp.  Speaking of which, I have a video coming out on the Phillip K. Dick-based "Bladerunner" shortly.  I will post a link here as soon as it's up (if that's not too off-topic).
