This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish.  And send it on to everyone.  Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so  quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities.  

Can a good Muslim be a good American?
This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:
Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia. 

Religiously - no. Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam. (Quran,2:256)(Koran) 

scripturally - no. Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
Geographically - no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially - no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically - no. Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.
Domestically - no. Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him. (Quran4:34 )
Intellectually - no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically - no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or   autocratic. 

Spiritually - no. Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' The Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names. 

Therefore, after much study and deliberation... Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL  MUSLIMS in this  country. They obviously cannot be both  'good' Muslims  and 'good' Americans.  Call it what you wish it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who  understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.

The religious war is bigger than we know or understand!
 Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within.  SO  FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.  

Please don't delete this until you send it on.

Sad situation TAX DOLLARS AT WORK...

Cheap  Tomatoes?

Tomatoes  and Cheap Labor

This should make everyone think, be you  Democrat, Republican or Independent
>From a California school  teacher - - -

"As you  listen to the news about the student protests over illegal
immigration,  there are some things that you should be aware of:
I am in charge of the  English-as-a-second-language department at a
large southern California high  school which is designated a Title 1
school, meaning that its students  average lower socioeconomic
and income levels.

Most  of the schools you are hearing about, South Gate High, Bell
Gardens ,  Huntington Park , etc.., where these students are
protesting, are also Title  1 schools.

Title 1  schools are on the free  breakfast and free lunch program.
When I say free breakfast, I'm not  talking a glass of milk and roll
-- but a full breakfast and cereal bar with  fruits and juices that
would make a Marriott proud. The waste of this food  is monumental,
with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash  uneaten.

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least
moderately overweight. About 75% or more DO have cell  phones. The
school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant
girls (some as young as 13) so they can  attend class without the
inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters  or having family
watch their kids. (OUR  TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)

I  was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department or risk  losing
funding for the upcoming year even though  there was little need for
anything; my budget was already substantial. I ended up buying new
computers  for the computer learning center, half of which, one month
later, have been  carved with graffiti by the appreciative students
who obviously feel humbled  and grateful to have a free education in

I have had to intervene several times for young and substitute
teachers whose  classes consist of many illegal immigrant students
here in the country less  then 3 months who raised so much hell with
the female teachers, calling them  "Putas"(whores) and throwing
things, that the teachers were in  tears.

Free medical,  free education, free food, day care, etc., etc, etc.
Is it any wonder  they feel entitled to not only be in this country
but to demand rights,  privileges and entitlements?

(To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants
contribute to our society because they LIKE their gardener and
housekeeper and they like to pay less for tomatoes: spend some  time
in the real world of illegal immigration and see the TRUE  cost:)

Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical  costs,
more crime, lower standards of education in our schools,
overcrowding, new diseases etc., etc, etc. For me, I'll pay more for

Americans, We  need to wake up. The guest worker program will be  a
disaster  because we won't have the guts to enforce  it.  Does anyone
in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and

It does,  however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world
culture that does  not value education, that accepts children getting
pregnant and dropping out  of school by 15 and that refuses to
assimilate, and an American  culture that  has become so weak and
worried about "political  correctness" that we don't have the will to
do  anything about it.

If  this makes your blood  boil,  as it did mine, forward this to
everyone you know.

CHEAP LABOR? (Isn't that  what the whole immigration issue is about?)

Business doesn't want to  pay a decent wage.

Consumers don't want  expensive produce.

Government will tell you  Americans don't want the jobs.

But the bottom line is cheap labor.  The phrase "cheap labor" is a myth,
a farce,  and a lie. There is no such thing as "cheap labor."

Take,  for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He
takes a job  for
$5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he  pays no
income tax, yet at the end of  the year, if he files an Income Tax  Return

he  gets an "earned  income credit" of up to $3,200 free.

He  qualifies for Section  8 housing and subsidized  rent.

He  qualifies for food  stamps..

His children  get free breakfasts and lunches at  school.

He requires  bilingual teachers and books.

He qualifies for relief from high  energy bills...

If they are---or become---aged, blind or disabled,  they qualify  for SSI.
Once qualified for SSI they  can qualify for Medicare.    All of this
is at (our) taxpayer's  expense .

He doesn't worry about car  insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance.

Taxpayers  provide Spanish language  signs, bulletins and printed material.

He  and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour  in benefits.

Working  Americans

​ ​
are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after Paying their bills and his.

The  American taxpayers also pay for increased crime, graffiti and

trash clean-up.

Cheap labor?  YEAH, RIGHT! Wake up people!

Saudis pumping oil ~ bankrupt small companies?

The fake Paris incident is aimed at taking down the house of Saud

by David Robinson
Posted by benjamin (Benjamin Fulford)
The obviously faked terror incident in Paris last week was clearly aimed at preparing public opinion in the West for an operation to take down the Saudi Arabian monarchy. The operation consisted of having a French magazine publish cartoons of a sort that would lead to a death penalty in Saudi Arabia, and then faking the execution of the magazine’s staff. This serves to make the Western public aware and angry about the sort of thing the Saudi government does.
It is a fact the Saudi Monarchy has for years bankrolled and promoted and obscurantist, radical sect of Islam known as Wahabism. They have also worked hand in glove with the Bush Nazi crime family for decades in their project to replace Western democracy with totalitarian dictatorship. This is a country where, if you are caught in an adulterous relationship, the punishment, to this day, is to have you buried up to the waist in the sand and then stoned to death. This is also a country where you can be arbitrarily killed by the ruling family for questioning their control of that country. When I was there I was advised that if I got in a traffic accident, I should pretend to be injured so that I would be taken to a hospital instead of a police station. If I ended up in a police station I might never come out, I was told. This family mafia country has been using their oil wealth to create armies of ignorant fanatics throughout the world.
So, to cut off financing for Islamo-fascists; beheading the Saudi regime would be a good place to start. Or at least that's what seems to be going on in the minds of the people staging the events in Paris.
There is a deeper aspect to this story though.
The Saudis themselves represent a slave government controlled by elements of the P2 Freemason lodge who want to engineer a battle between Christianity and Islam in order to force them to become a single religion; or a one world religion controlled in secret by them. They created and financed Wahabists and other fake Muslim extremist groups in order to create a boogey man for brainwashed Western militaries to attack. The end game is a world fascist dictatorship controlled by a small clique of inbred families. In this version, the Saudi royals are just pawns acting out the role of bad guys.
When my father, Dwight Fulford, was Canadian ambassador to Saudi Arabia in the late 1980’s the Saudi royals he met tried to get him to read the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. A Saudi prince also told this writer “we have worked under them for a very long time.” The story being conveyed by the Saudis is that of a secretive “Zionist” group manipulating world events in order to take control of the planet.
French President Francois Hollande, for his part, on public television blamed the incident on “les illumines,” the French world for Illuminati.
The Illuminati he was referring to are most likely the gnostic Illuminati, a group that claims credit for the American, French and Russian revolutions. This group wants to end bloodline rule in Europe. Hollande is affiliated with the French Grande Orient Freemason lodge which would put him under the French branch of the Rothschild family.
The Illuminati previously told the White Dragon Society they want to end European bloodline rule in the Middle East as well.
Now let us take a look at what is going on in the Middle East. What we see there is an alliance between Turkey, Syria, Iran, Shia Iraq, and the Pentagon apparently facing off against Israel, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt. Turkey, Syria, Iran and the Iraqi Shias together can wield a modern army of over 1.5 million men. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Jordan together can muster just under one million. If both the Pentagon and Russia support the Turkish alliance, and apparently they do, this essentially means Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel have no real choice but to join the Turkish/Iranian alliance or be militarily crushed.
Now let us look at this situation from the US angle. Here we have an Obama regime stubbornly clinging to power in Washington that still refuses to tell the truth about 911 and the fascist coup d’etat that followed it. Note too that nobody significant from the Obama regime showed up at the big French PR event last week that followed the fake terror attack.
This is the same Obama regime that is threatening to veto the Keystone pipeline plan to bring oil from Canada to the United States. Apparently Obama thinks it is better for the US to import its oil from the fanatic sponsoring Zionist slave regime in Saudi Arabia than from peaceful democratic Canada.
The Pentagon, quite sensibly, is no longer obeying any orders from the Obama regime.
Incoming Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, when he comes into office next month, knows the rest of the world will stop financing the pentagon and the US regime unless action is taken against the neo-con war criminals, starting with the Bush family, that Obama is still protecting.
Now let us get back to Europe. France was attacked immediately after President Hollande called for an end to sanctions against Russia. Germany is also talking about setting up a joint security arrangement with Russia making a “terror” incident there a likely bet.
This comes as the US announces it is closing 15 military bases in Europe and concentrating its military power there in England. England is also now moving away from the EU and aiming to become a sort of Atlantic Switzerland.
Meanwhile Greece, which is secretly ruled by the British royal family (Queen Elizabeth’s husband Philip was born as Prince of Greece and Denmark), is expected on January 25th to elect a government that will leave the German controlled Euro.
So, let us try to visualize the big picture of what is going on. We have a new super-state emerging in the Middle East. We have Russia and Germany replacing the US as the main sponsors of security in continental Europe. We have England distancing itself from Europe and rebuilding its bridges with the Anglo Saxon world.
In Asia, meanwhile, China has done a pretty good job of hiding how powerful it has truly become. One mind-blowing statistic says it all: in the past 3 years China has produced more cement than the US did in the entire 20th century.
China wants to reassure its neighbours and the rest of the world that it poses no threat. For that reason it is not only tolerating but actually financing Pentagon efforts to defend countries that border China. As a part of this, (as mentioned before in this newsletter) China has agreed to a merger between North and South Korea with Japan under Pentagon protection.
So, the Pentagon moves 60% of its forces to Asia, while the Russians and Germans take over the role of protecting continental Europe. The Muslim world, for its part, will become strong and independent once again minus the radical fanatics.
One other bit of news that slipped in mostly under the radar last week is that China just reached an agreement with the nations of the Caribbean, Central and South America (the US’s “backyard”) to increase bilateral trade to $500 billion a year.
And, in Washington D.C., we have a rump regime carrying out foolish anti-social acts like inciting race riots, faking North Korean hacking incidents etc. In psychological maturity it resembles a two year old having a temper tantrum after its candy has been taken away.

THE WALL Vietnam...

The Wall
A little history most people will never know
Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010.
The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 57 years since the first casualty.
The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Weymouth , Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965.
There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall.
39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger.
8,283 were just 19 years old.
The largest age group, 33,103 were 18 years old.
12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old.
5 soldiers on the Wall were 16 years old.
One soldier, PFC Dan Bullock was 15 years old.
997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam.
1,448 soldiers were killed on their last day in Vietnam.
31 sets of brothers are on the Wall.
Thirty one sets of parents lost two of their sons.
54 soldiers attended Thomas Edison High School in Philadelphia . I wonder why so many from one school.
8 Women are on the Wall, Nursing the wounded.
244 soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War; 153 of them are on the Wall.
Beallsville, Ohio with a population of 475 lost 6 of her sons
West Virginia had the highest casualty rate per capita in the nation. There are 711 West Virginians on the Wall. 
The Marines of Morenci - They led some of the scrappiest high school football and basketball teams that the little Arizona copper town of Morenci (pop. 5,058) had ever known and cheered. They enjoyed roaring beer busts. In quieter moments, they rode horses along the Coronado Trail, stalked deer in the Apache National Forest . And in the patriotic camaraderie typical of Morenci's mining families, the nine graduates of Morenci High enlisted as a group in the Marine Corps. Their service began on Independence Day, 1966. Only 3 returned home.

The Buddies of Midvale - LeRoy Tafoya, Jimmy Martinez, Tom Gonzales were all boyhood friends and lived on three consecutive streets in Midvale, Utah on Fifth, Sixth and Seventh avenues. They lived only a few yards apart. They played ball at the adjacent sandlot ball field. And they all went to Vietnam . In a span of 16 dark days in late 1967, all three would be killed. LeRoy was killed on Wednesday, Nov. 22, the fourth anniversary of John F. Ken nedy's assassination. Jimmy died less than 24 hours later on Thanksgiving Day. Tom was shot dead assaulting the enemy on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

The most casualty deaths for a single day was on January 31, 1968 ~ 245 deaths.

The most casualty deaths for a single month was May 1968 - 2,415 casualties were incurred. 
For most Americans who read this they will only see the numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we feel the pain that these numbers created. We are, until we too pass away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends, fathers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters. There are no noble wars, just noble warriors.

Please pass this on to those who served during this time, and also to those who Care.

More 'Translations' from the Koran:
Surah 9:5 states: " Slay the Idolator's wherever you find them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them."
Surah 9:73 reads: " make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home: an evil fate."
Surah 9:123 commands: " Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them.
Know that [Allah] is with the righteous."
Surah 9:39 warns: " If you do not go to war, [Allah] will punish you sternly, and will replace you with other men."
Surah 8:12 states: " [Allah] revealed his will to the Angels, saying: " I shall be with you.  Give courage to the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels.  Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers! "'

We may as well know what the Koran tells them to do!!!

WTF happened to the land of the free?

A 3% tax on tea eventually led to the American Revolution. 

Now you pay up to 70% of your earnings to a De Facto corporate government and that doesn't count your healthcare bill.

You are groped at the airport, surveilled on the street, spied upon in your own home, fed propaganda by the media lied to by your representatives, have your rights eroded, your currency devalued and are on the verge of an overt police state.

WTF happened to home of the brave, land of the free? 


I sent an e-mail to a friend describing how the moon was bought into orbit Around Earth using ortho-rotational physics. Yes it was brought in 11,720 years ago to replenish earth's atmosphere and take it out of the Ice Age. The Moon is hollow and has an ocean inside that is kept in one place by the Earth;s gravity. If you crank up the big paddle wheel in the center to rotate it the opposite direction of the Earth's rotation it will draw it toward Earth. If you rotate it the same as Earth's rotation it will go away.  
When I was describing how to move the moon toward or away from earth by rotating it different directions in accordance with the earth's rotation I forgot to mention colliding galaxies. I  have the coffee table sized book I bought in Anchorage Book Cash years ago titled Galaxies by Timothy Ferris.

The book shows many actual pictures of different galaxies and some of them are colliding. It also has computer simulations on what happens to them and their spiral arms after the collide and how the turn back into normal galaxies afterwards.
Both Brad Guth and myself noticed that galaxies that rotate the same direction repel each other and don't collide. Those the rotate in opposite directions collide. There are examples of collisions when they are angled different and what happens. It all boils down to gravity interaction of moving objects... Its right there in front of a person to see and understand but we need to boost our intelligence. The Germans were into that sort of thing back in WWII.

I'm reading this book called Passage of Souls by Gregory Little. Its a fascinating book. He excavated hundreds of burial mounds in Mississippi, Illinois, Ohio and other places. There are pictures in the book of various artifacts including stone discs depicting two snakes in a circle with their tails in their mouths and a severed hand in the middle with an eye located in the palm. The eye is a space portal in Messier-42 or M42 which is in Orion. The eye is called an ogee. When you die your soul has to make the leap toward Orion and pass through the ogee. On the way you will encounter at least two winged birds or beings that test you to see if you are worthy to enter the ogee. This reminds me of the Christian Angels that meet you at the Heavenly Gate to determine if you are fit to enter... According to the author the ogee is M-42. Attached is a picture. Is that where your soul goes when you die?

The last attachment is Banard's Loop dust cloud around Orion. I believe that explosion that kicked three 2-solar mass stars out of Orion was the event that marked the beginning of the first small Ice Ages when it broke our tractor beam with Sirius B around Sirius A kicked us out of orbit into an ellipse. 2.5 million years ago the temperature on Earth dropped from 63 degrees F down to 32 degrees F and that is where it is now. All prior geologic ages were 63 or more degrees and during the carboniferous when most of the carbon resources were made and trees were 1000 feet high it went up to 83 F. I have the Temperature graph but it was too big to put into the book. Its logarithmic and three feet long. 

ORION  IMAGE in Infrared. see attached
The familiar winter sky constellation Orion takes on a spectacular guise in the infrared, as seen in this false-color image constructed from data collected by IRAS, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite. This picture, covering about 30 x 24 degrees is a composite of IRAS wavelength band data centered at 12 microns, 60 microns, and 100 microns. New processing techniques have been used to enhance faint details and remove the instrumental artifacts (stripes) seen in earlier IRAS images. The warmest features, e.g. ~ the stars, are brightest at 12 microns. This emission is coded blue. The interstellar dust is cooler and shines brighter at 60 microns (coded green) and 100 microns (coded red).

The bright yellow region in the lower right of the picture is the Sword of Orion, containing the Great Orion Nebula (M42 and M43). Above it to the left is the nebulosity around the belt star Zeta Orionis which contains the often photographed Horsehead Nebula (barely visible as a small indentation on the right side). Higher and to the left is M78, a reflection nebula. The Rosette Nebula is the brightest object near the left margin of the picture.

Most of the visually bright stars of Orion are not prominent in the infrared. However, Betelgeuse can be easily seen in the upper center of the picture as a blue-white dot (the faint tail is an instrumental artifact). The large ring to the right of Betelgeuse is the remnant of a supernova explosion, centered around the star Lambda Orionis. These rings are quite common in the IRAS sky. Another one, fainter and larger, can be seen in the lower left quadrant of the image.
Finder Chart for M42 (also shown M43 and M78)

M-42 is the location of the ogee portal of the souls. Ancient American religion says that you will encounter winged birds that will test you to see if you are worthy to pass into the ogee.

To the naked eye M42 appears as a soft diffuse glow that surrounds the stars of the sword of Orion. When viewed through 10x50 binoculars it is a prominent feature, appearing large and bright. The centre region is obvious with parts of fainter nebulosity extending outwards towards the east and west in the shape of two wings. Two prominent bright stars are easily visible at the heart of M42. These stars are embedded within the Orion Nebula and form the famous multiple star Theta1 Orionis, commonly known as the Trapezium. The cluster, which is one of the most observed multiple star systems, consists of four bright members in the shape of a trapezoid plus a few fainter stars. A 80mm (3.1-inch) telescope at low/medium power will easily split the Trapezium into its main components; a fantastic sight combined with the surrounding nebula. The four brightest stars of the Trapezium have magnitudes of 5.1(C), 6.7(D), 6.7-7.7(A) and 8.0-8.7(B) respectively. Unusually, they are lettered in order of right ascension instead of magnitude, as common for other multiple stars. A challenge for observers of the Trapezium is to spot two of the fainter members, 11th magnitude stars E and F. They can be observed with apertures of only 80mm (3.1 inches) on nights of very good seeing, but much easier with telescopes of the order of 200mm (8 inches) or greater.
Inline image 1

The Trapezium (high magnification view)  Large telescopes reveal more intrigue details in M42. The view through a 200mm (8-inch) telescope is superb. At low magnifications, the Orion Nebula fills the field of view with significant amounts of structural detail visible as twists and wisps of cloud formations. The Trapezium is very evident and bright. Visually the Orion Nebula can often exhibit a green hue but photographically it appears mostly red.
The discovery of the Orion Nebula Nebula is generally credited to French astronomer Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc. He recorded it on November 26, 1610. It was then independently located by Johann Baptist Cysat in 1611. Surprisingly, neither Ptolemy's Almagest nor Al Sufi's Book of Fixed Stars noted this nebula, even though they both listed patches of nebulosity elsewhere in the night sky. Galileo Galilei made telescopic observations of the surrounding region in 1610 and 1617, but he also failed to notice the nebula. However, he did discover the Trapezium on February 4, 1617. This has led to some to speculate that a more recent flare-up of the illuminating stars may have increased the brightness of the nebula.

The Orion Nebula is a spectacular deep sky object and one of the most famous of all. It is visible to the naked eye as a faint haze, is a wonderful sight in binoculars and spectacular in telescopes. You are looking at a stellar nursery where stars are been born. At the heart of the cluster and illuminating the surrounding area is a group of stars known as the Trapezium; a multiple star system consisting of four main bright members that are easily resolvable in small telescopes.
M42 is located 1340 light years from Earth and has a diameter of 24 light years. Located only 8 arc minutes north of M42 is M43, which is also part of the Orion Nebula. It is separated from the main nebula by a dark dust lane.

We got blasted out of our comfortable orbit around Sirius A following Sirius B after the Banard's Loop explosion in Orion that left a huge debris cloud that can be seen with the naked eye. It went off 3-million years ago kicking three two-solar mass stars into a triangle formation leaving Orion at 200 kilometers per second. Check out the book: COSMOLOGICAL ICE AGES.

That was the start of the recent Ice Age cycle on Earth 2.5 - MILLION YEARS AGO. We made 58 orbits around the 8- light years distant 3.5 solar mass Sirius A and B.
