    Chester Bennington was close pals with Chris Cornell, who committed suicide in May. Bennington died on what would have been Cornell’s 53rd birthday. See Bennington on the right with his friend Cornell. There are rumours that Cornell and Chester Bennington were murdered, because they threatened to expose a peadophile sex ring. The source is YourNewsWire, which is not a reliable source for information. Just five days before his death, Chester was in the studio working on a new project, see from left to right – Bennington (smiling), George Watsky, Mike Shinoda and Chukwudi Hodge.

    Firestarter started a thread Chinese pyramids in History
    Maybe this is already well-known, but I only learned recently that there are also “pyramids” in China. They are called pyramids, but an important difference (with the Egyptian ones) is that the Chinese pyramids are not made out of large stone building blocks. This makes it much easier to imagine that they were constructed a long time ago, when people (supposedly) didn’t have advanced knowledge of construction. See the following 5:55 video. There is surprisingly little known about Chinese pyramids, even though the German Hartwig Hausdorf wrote a book about them. They are burial tombs of emperors of the Western Han dynasty.

    I forgot to mention that I often use 2 places were lots of books can be found. When I search for a book, I often start at the following Dutch site, most books are in English, and there is also a huge amount of videos: http://www.vrijewereld.org/pdf-bibliotheek/ I do warn that Vrijewereld.org specialises in “conspiracy theories”, which means that there is also a lot of garbage in between the good books. Antony Sutton has written a number of books that in my opinion are all worth the time. Vrijewereld.org features (links to) a few (or all?) of his books. Project Gutenberg is another book repository with an almost endless amount of books. One of the few Dutch writers worth reading is Frederik van Eeden – Little Johannes (this is a novel): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/40656/40656-h/40656-h.htm I don’t know if Project Gutenberg also features good history books however.

    Maybe I should have found out (or at least mentioned my suspicions) earlier, but Nicholas de Vere has never been part of the “real” elite. De Vere (and his associates like Laurence Gardner) looked for media attention to reclaim their supposed birth right (as born superior because of their dragon blood). “HRH” Nicholas de Vere Von Drakenberg, was actually born Nicholas Thomas Weir, the son of James Weir and Natalie Hopgood: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Weir-2353 This doesn’t mean that all the information of De Vere (which was my starting point for this thread) is unreliable, but I should have handled it with more scepticism. When I searched for information on the “European Council of Princes”, which is the ruling body of the Dragon court (if I understand correctly), I found the name of the Belgian born Michel Roger Lafosse. Lafosse has been ridiculed (with probably good reasons) for claiming to be a descendant of Charles Edward Stuart ("Bonnie Prince Charlie") and the legitimate heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Scotland. Since 1979, Lafosse has called himself “HRH Prince Michael James Alexander Stewart, 7th Count of Albany". In 1991, Lafosse became the President of the “European Council of Princes” affiliated with Nicholas de Vere.

    Last 12 July, the Dutch Senate (Eerste kamer) passed the new “tapping law” which gives the intelligence agencies (AIVD and MIVD) the right to gather data practically without limitations. The law was passed with broad support from Dutch parliament, and according to the NOS will go into effect on 1 January 2018. This includes hacking into devices (for example computers or cell phones) of (large) groups that aren’t suspected of any crime. The AIVD can for example make telecom providers deliver them the chat traffic in a city of 400,000 inhabitants, under the guise of wanting the communication of 200 users. The intelligence agencies are allowed to: - intercept all internet communication. - hack into devices, of people who aren't suspected of anything, but know somebody who is a suspect; - read and/or destroy documents;

    Recent “scientific” research on 20 breast cancer patients shows that chemotherapy might cause cancer. Researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the US have found indications that chemotherapy given before surgery increases the risk for metastasis in breast cancer victims. The researchers found elevated levels of Tumor MicroEnvironment of Metastasis (TMEM) in all the victims that had received chemotherapy prior to surgery. The researchers also found that the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel causes bone marrow cells with TIE2 receptors to move to tumours, which results in TMEM formation. When the TIE2 was blocked with drugs, the number of TMEM sites in chemotherapy-treated mice didn’t increase. The researchers conclude that more research needs to be done to ascertain if chemotherapy drugs cause cancers to spread. In the meantime, it may be wise that doctors don’t prescribe chemotherapy before performing surgery on cancer patients: https://medicalxpress.com/news/2017-07-neoadjuvant-chemotherapy-breast-cancer-metastasis.html Here is the link to the full report of the study, but you have to register to view the full report: http://stm.sciencemag.org/content/9/397/eaan0026

    I’ve found 2 sites with lots of information on the Dragon bloodline. First the following site: http://watch.pairsite.com/merovingian.html “Meroveus” derives from the French words “mer” (sea) and “vere” (werewolf or dragon). “Merovingian” is said to derive from Merovee who was King of the Franks from 447-458 A.D. The Tuatha De Danaan (the Dragon Lords of Anu), before settling in Ireland starting in about 800 BC, were the Black Sea princes of Scythia (now Ukraine). The Imperial and Royal Dragon Court is the ancient Court and Order of the Angevin descendants of the House of Vere of Caledonia, Anjou and Lorraine, and the physical embodiment of the sovereign Princedom of Drakenberg: http://watch.pairsite.com/false-christ.html

    Most people in the “civilised” world don’t even realise what it’s like to have no clean water to drink. The international world powers in their greatest philanthropic disguise just last month provided Yemen with one million doses of an oral cholera vaccine for urgent use. Do I understand correctly that according to the state propaganda, because of these magical “vaccines”, Yemenis don’t need food and clean water anymore... There is at least one death every hour caused by severe dehydration and diarrhoea. International health officials say the emergency vaccinations are necessary to contain the cholera epidemic in Yemen. The vaccine can only be administered to those who don’t have cholera yet. Once Yemenis have been exterminated this will surely stop the cholera outbreak... According to the WHO, there is already a network in place to distribute the vaccines immediately in priority areas to everyone above the age of one: https://www.irinnews.org/news/2017/06/20/exclusive-largest-ever-stock-cholera-vaccine-headed-yemen

    No surprises here, my former employer ABN AMRO bank has been involved in money laundering... In 2007, the Dutch ABN AMRO Bank was bought by a trio of banks, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Fortis and Banco Santander. RBS was fined in 2010 for the past activities of ABN AMRO’s New York branch. RBS agreed to forfeit $500 million in connection with a conspiracy to defraud the USA, violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) and the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA), as well as a violation of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). ABN AMRO implemented procedures to flag payments involving sanctioned countries so that ABN AMRO could delete problematic text to process transactions with countries in violation with the laws of the USA. From approximately 1995 to December 2005, offices and affiliates of ABN AMRO removed or altered names and references to sanctioned countries from payment messages. ABN AMRO’s New York branch office intentionally failed to establish an adequate Anti Money Laundering (AML) program. According to assistant Attorney General Breuer:

    I already knew that “virus hunters” have been trying to prove “scientifically” that cancer is caused by a virus, but this is still not the official story on cancer. I think I should add some arguments that the idea that vaccines can be used to fight cancer is ridiculous. But before I can, I have to figure out how anybody could believe such a thing in the first place. I can find lots of alternative ideas on health care. I haven’t found anything to show that treatment of cancer victims with vaccines is ridiculous. Furthermore the fact that this is customised (personalised) “treatment” means that it would be impossible to “scientifically” prove the efficacy. It is not intended to become a mono-therapy but only in combination with the surgical removal of cancer, radiation and/or chemotherapy. I can imagine that the cancer vaccines have less adverse (“side”) effects than radiation and chemotherapy. There have been earlier investigations into the possibility of cancer vaccines. Earlier, unsuccessful cancer vaccines usually targeted a single distinctive cancer protein shared among patients, but these new ones are specific to an individual patient’s tumour.

    There are a large amount of books about the drugs trafficking by the elite. A lot of them focus on the CIA. If I understand correctly, the Dutch and British Royal family have been making (lots of) money for centuries by controlling the dope business, and are still involved. There is “hard” evidence that Oliver North was involved in cocaine trafficking using the Contras, for which I recommend the book by Gary Webb. Webb was found with 2 bullets in his head when he was working on a new book; can you imagine that this was ruled a suicide? CIA asset Barry Seal dropped off drugs in the Arkansas of Governor Bill Clinton. Barry Seal was executed after he reportedly said that he had evidence that the “boys” of George Bush Sr. were involved in the drugs game. A mere week ago when I heard "Leviathan" I thought about an album of Mastodon. Now I know that it's one of the 4 Crown Princes of Hell as defined by Anton LaVey in his Satanic Bible. I have not seen a specific connection between Ronald Reagan to Satanism (let alone Leviathan...).

    I think I’ve found a “real” whistleblower in the American Bradley Birkenfeld, who blew the whistle on the Swiss banking giant UBS. He made 30 names of the rich clients with secret Swiss bank accounts known to the US government, only one of these has been charged and publicly named. Whistleblowers are really dangerous, so Birkenfeld was jailed for two and a half years for helping his clients “evade taxes”. After being released in August 2012, he had to remain in the USA wearing an electronic ankle-tag until November 2015, before he moved to Malta. His information is hampered, because he is convinced that it’s all about tax evasion, instead of money laundering. Most (if not all) of his clients and superiors at UBS got off without prison time. Birkenfeld got a nice pay check for helping the US government get hundreds of millions in back taxes. According to some whistleblower policy he was entitled to 30% of the profits, which amounted to $104 million minus taxes leaving him with a pay check of $75 million net (he claims that he’s entitled to much more). Bradley Birkenfeld, worked as Head of Business Development for North America out of Geneva, Switzerland for UBS from 2001 to 2006. In 2007, Birkenfeld offered to help US authorities with information about how the UBS had helped thousands of Americans evade taxes. Maybe the most interesting is how he helped the Russian immigrant, Californian real-estate billionaire Igor Olenicoff, with connections to former Russian President Boris Yeltsin.

    This black page in history is best known as the “Armenian genocide”. From 1915 to 1918 up to 1.5 million Christian Armenians died. I didn't even know that also a lot of Christians of other origin were massacred. That I write in this post about "Armenians" doesn't mean that I disagree with the Original Post that (also) a large group of Greeks were murdered and forced to leave the Ottoman Empire... In the 1880's, the Rothschild and Nobel families acquired interests in the Russian oil fields of Baku. By a new railroad they transported the oil through Batumi on the Black Sea (part of the Ottoman Empire, now part of Georgia). In 1892, Marcus Samuel revolutionised oil transport by beginning to ship it by oil tanker (The Murex) from Batumi, through the Suez Canal to the Far East where Royal Dutch Shell became the predominant supplier of Kerosene almost overnight. Royal Dutch Petroleum Company joined forces with the Rothschilds in the Asiatic Petroleum Company, before merging in 1907 with Samuel’s Shell Transport and Trading Company into the Royal Dutch Shell Group. Shell would eventually join Standard Oil and the Nobels in a worldwide oil cartel… In 1905, a sudden end came to this profitable business caused by ethnic unrest in Turkey between Muslims and Christians. Without ethnic minorities no ethnic riots are expected anymore: http://www.hiddenmysteries.org/conspiracy/history/genocine.html

    Srebrenica is (again) in the news... On 27 June 2017, the Court of Justice in The Hague issued its verdict in the appeal of the case of the “Mothers of Srebrenica” (10 plaintiffs) against the Dutch State in the Srebrenica “genocide”. In its ruling, the court in The Hague upheld a decision from 2014 by the lower court that Dutchbat stationed in Bosnia-Herzegovina was at fault for expelling Muslim men from the Dutch UN base, many of whom were murdered by Bosnian Serb forces. The appeal court ruled that the Netherlands is only responsible for the deaths of around 350 Muslim men and boys in the 1995 Srebrenica “massacre”. According to the verdict 7000 were murdered. The Dutch state isn’t responsible for the majority of the murdered men, because these were killed after they ran into the forest surrounding the enclave. This almost confirms that the genocide consisted of “only” 350 men (instead of 7000-8000)… The presiding judge said that Dutch actions meant the Muslim men “were deprived of the chance of survival”.

All the roads lead to Rothschild. The name “Rothschild” is derived from the Red shield (Rot schild in German) that hung in front of the house of Isaac Elchanan (d. 1585) in Frankfurt. His son Isaac Rothschild (b. 1577) was the first member of the family who used the name "Rothschild". See the Red shield with the black one-headed phoenix that hung in front of Elchanan’s house. Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), was one of the descendants of Elchenan, the son of Amschel Moses Rothschild (born ca. 1710) and Schoenche Rothschild, also born in Frankfurt. By general consensus Mayer Amschel Rothschild is the founding father of the Rothschild dynasty.

    Grenfell Tower contained high levels of asbestos. Asbestos was found in artex in ceilings and in panels inside airing cupboards of individual flats. The Grenfell Tower inferno has released large amounts of asbestos laden smoke, dust and ash into the air of the entire surrounding area and probably other toxic substances (for example from the newly installed “combustible” cladding). No public statements were made about this risk to the public health. The concentration of these deadly toxins in the air and the local environment haven’t even been measured. Part of the recent “improvement works” that replaced the heating system in Grenfell Tower, was installing individual heating systems in all of the apartments. Since then they didn’t depend on the central heating system – in the Grenfell Tower boiler room - anymore. The hundreds of households, surviving in the low rise blocks in the neighbourhood are still dependent on the Grenfell Tower boiler room, however. These have been left without hot water and gas for cooking: https://grenfellactiongroup.wordpress.com/2017/06/22/grenfell-tower-fire-the-forgotten-forgotten-victims/ A strong case can be made that all of the residents in the low houses in the area of the Grenfell Tower, deserve alternative houses - both for health reasons and not having hot water and gas.

All in all, when compared to the famine, and bombing, there is only a small amount of refugees that have escaped Yemen. About 170,000 people have fled Yemen so far (written in March 2016), mostly to Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan (and even Saudi Arabia). This is “small” compared to the millions that have escaped Syria, where the humanitarian drama isn’t as bad. Most of the escapees are not Yemenis, but returning foreigners. The United Nations expects another 167,000 departures in 2016: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-yemen-security-cornered-idUSKCN0WB0IL The small amounts of Yemenis that reach the EU are put in an impossible situation... In September 2015, the EU agreed upon a plan, under which refugees (mainly from Syria, Iraq and Eritrea) be distributed around Europe to relieve the burden on the frontline states of Italy and Greece.

    I've talked to a psychiatric victim, doing Tai chi chuan for a hobby. This is a form of meditation, where (slow) body movement is combined with meditation. In Tai chi they concentrate on fantasy type of ideas: holding an imaginary ball in your hands the size of the earth (really "big" ideas)... My impression was that the victim in question had some superwoman fantasies, caused by Tai chi. This was labelled as manic. Upon realising that the own skills weren't nearly as wondrous as imagined, came the depression. She was labelled as manic-depressed. Of course the whole idea of doing meditation to become "enlightened" is also a form of imagining yourself to be a superhuman. There are different forms of meditation: if I understand correctly yoga is also a form of meditation combined with (slow) body movement (like Tai chi).
