Muslims raise funds to repair vandalized Jewish cemetery

Muslim activists have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help repair the damage in a vandalized Jewish cemetery, according to ABC News.


TheBlaze previously reported that over 100 headstones at the historic Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in University City, Missouri were vandalized over the weekend.




Robin Rickerman, who has family members buried in the cemetery, told KTVI-TV that “these are holocaust survivors that are in here.”


“They shouldn’t have to endure any more trauma,” Rickerman said. “Let them be settled.”


According to ABC, Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Messidi decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign to help repair the damage to the cemetery. They have raised over $80,000 so far.


“Muslim Americans stand in solidarity with the Jewish-American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration against the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery,” the pair wrote on the campaign’s website. “We also extend our deepest condolences to all those who have been affected and to the Jewish community at large.”


They said that they want to show support to the impacted Jewish community:


The Muslim-American community extends our hands to help rebuild this sacred space where Jewish-American families have laid their loved ones to rest since the late 1800’s. Campaign proceeds will go directly to the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in light of the recent damage. Any remaining funds – after the cemetery is restored – will be allocated to repair any other vandalized Jewish centers.


“Through this campaign, we hope to send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities that there is no place for this type of hate, desecration, and violence in America,” they added. “We pray that this restores a sense of security and peace to the Jewish-American community who has undoubtedly been shaken by this event.”


The vandalism comes amid an increase in anti-semitic violence in the United States.

Israeli soldier who killed wounded terrorist after knife attack sentenced for manslaughter

Sgt. Elor Azaria insisted his life was in danger.


A combat medic in the Israel Defense Forces, Azaria was stationed in Hebron last March when a terrorist carried out a knife attack against fellow soldiers, World Israel News reported.


The terrorist lay wounded on the ground — “neutralized,” the outlet said — and then Azaria fatally shot him in the head, World Israel News added.


Azaria noted he feared for his life and thought the terrorist could have had a bomb on his body, the outlet reported, but the prosecution called what Azaria did an unlawful act of vengeance.


So an Israeli military court in Tel Aviv sentenced Azaria on Tuesday to 18 months in prison after finding him guilty of manslaughter in January, World Israel News said, adding that he also was demoted to private and got an additional 12-month suspended sentence.

The court doubted Azaria’s version of events, the outlet said, adding that it relied on accounts from other soldiers and commanders who questioned his act.


One soldier testified that Azaria asked before his shooting, “How is it that my friend was stabbed and the terrorist is still alive?” the New York Times reported, adding that a commander recalled Azaria saying after the shooting that the “terrorist deserved to die.”


Still the court — saying Azaria was a good soldier who suffered from emotional stress after the shooting and didn’t get proper treatment for it, World Israel News reported — gave him the shortest sentence the law allows. The outlet said the prosecution wanted three to five years in prison.


Some Israeli officials have called for Azaria’s pardon, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.


“This is a difficult and painful day for us all,” Netanyahu said in a January Facebook post supporting a pardon, the Times said, adding that Israel’s president or Army officials can issue a pardon.


World Israel News said a poll following Azaria’s conviction indicates 70 percent of the Israeli public favors his pardon.


After his sentencing, Azaria’s family sang Israel’s national anthem in the courtroom. He was seen smiling much of the time afterward:

White House correspondent’s question shows why people have trouble trusting the media

If the press corps is trying to engender more trust among the American electorate, some reporters aren’t doing a good job of proving their objectivity.


On Tuesday, American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, a veteran reporter with decades of experience, erroneously accused President Donald Trump of claiming that “white America” built the United States.


Ryan asked the question during the daily White House briefing following the president’s tour of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture on Tuesday.


“What did the president gain from his tour today? You talked about where he visited, the exhibits that he visited. Did he also visit [the slavery exhibit]?” she asked White House press secretary Sean Spicer. “And the reason why I’m asking this is because, when he was candidate Trump, he said things like, you know, ‘We made this country,’ meaning white America, not necessarily black.”


Spicer immediately pushed back, unsure why the reporter would make such an inflammatory claim. Nevertheless, Ryan sternly interjected, “No, no, no. He said that. I heard him say that.” At the time, she pointed to no evidence to bolster her accusation.


On Wednesday, Ryan offered what she sees as proof to back up her claim. However, it appears viewers have to have a few presuppositions about Trump — namely, that he’s racist — in order to hear what Ryan says she heard.


So here’s what happened: During a March 15 campaign rally in Vandalia, Ohio, Trump told his supporters, “We cannot let our First Amendment rights be taken away from us.”


He continued:


We have the right to speak. We’re law-abiding people. We’re people that work very hard. We’re people who’ve built this country and made this country great. And we’re all together, and we want to get along with everybody. But when they have organized, professionally staged wise guys, we’ve got to fight back, we’ve got to fight back.


Ryan appears to be making the assumption that by “we,” Trump was referring to “white America.” She backed up that assumption by tweeting, “This rally happened right after the cancellation of the Chicago rally due to violence.” And in a statement to the Washington Post, the reporter argued that “the audience for the event was predominantly white” and that Trump made the comments in response to “that highly charged event.”




Mediaite’s Alex Griswold pushed back Wednesday morning:


This seems like a stretch to me. When a Trump rally is shut down by violent protests and a week later he goes on about how “we” are being denied First Amendment rights and “we” are law-abiding, the clear meaning of “we” is his supporters. And in a country that is “predominantly white,” politicians will give speeches before predominantly white audiences all the time. There were some pretty lily white Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders rallies as I recall. How many of those contained coded racism?


If journalists like Ryan are going to make such bold claims about Trump, or anyone for that matter, Griswold wrote, it is their “responsibility” to back up those assertions.


Accusations like Ryan’s have likely impacted Americans’ diminished trust in the mainstream media. According to 2016 Gallup data, only 32 percent of Americans trust the media “to report the news fully, accurately and fairly” — the lowest level in the research agency’s history.


And by a slim 45-to-42 percent margin, more voters trust the Trump administration to “tell the public the truth” than they trust journalists to accurately report on the White House, according to a Fox News poll from earlier this month.


The Ryan-Spicer interaction follows Trump’s assertion last week that the media is “an enemy of the American people.” In a tweet, the president claimed that the “failing” New York Times, NBC News, ABC News, CBS News and CNN all spread “fake news” about his administration.

The Washington Post unveiled its new slogan this week on its website and social media platforms: “Democracy dies in darkness.”




Kris Coratti, a spokeswoman for the Washington Post, told CNNMoney, “This is actually something we’ve said internally for a long time in speaking about our mission.”


“We thought it would be a good, concise value statement that conveys who we are to the many millions of readers who have come to us for the first time over the last year,” Coratti said. “We started with our newest readers on Snapchat, and plan to roll it out on our other platforms in the coming weeks.”


Some Twitter users expressed support for the slogan, characterizing it as a summary of the purpose of journalism:

Teen wrestler taking testosterone for female-to-male transition wins championship match on forfeit

Texas high school wrestler Mack Beggs, 17, is undefeated this season — 44 wins, zero losses, .


Last weekend a referee again raised Beggs’ hand in victory, and this time it was for the 110-pound championship at the Class 6A Region II meet.


https://twitter.com/JUST_JORDY/status/833925372957835265


But Beggs’ success on the mat is mired in controversy.


Beggs, a junior at Trinity High School in Euless, is transitioning from female to male and has been taking testosterone since October 2015 for that purpose, the Dallas Morning News reported.


The other twist, the paper noted, is that Beggs identifies as male and reportedly wants to wrestle boys — but state athletic rules prohibit the three-time state qualifier from doing so. One policy says student-athletes must compete as the gender listed on their birth certificates, the Morning News reported, adding that another rule forbids boys from wrestling girls, and vice versa.


So Beggs must wrestle girls.


His opponent in Saturday’s title match, Madeline Rocha, didn’t walk on the mat to wrestle Beggs, the paper said — which resulted in a forfeit. The Morning News noted that Beggs pulled a tearful Rocha on the victory stand, and the pair exchanged a hug.


Beggs’ first-round opponent, Lewisville’s Fatima Vaquerano, also forfeited, the Morning News said.


In the semifinal Friday night Beggs wrestled Grand Prairie’s Kailyn Clay, the paper reported — and Beggs pinned Clay.


While the Texas Education Code and University Interscholastic League rules prohibit steroid use, the Morning News said the code has a “safe harbor” provision allowing them if “dispensed, prescribed, delivered and administered by a medical practitioner for a valid medical purpose.”


Nevertheless, a wrestling parent and attorney, Jim Baudhuin, filed a lawsuit against the UIL, asking it to suspend Beggs for the testosterone use which he said places other athletes under “imminent threat of bodily harm,” the Morning News reported. Baudhuin’s daughter, a wrestler for Coppell High School, isn’t in Beggs’ weight class, the paper added.

Baudhuin added to the Morning News that his lawsuit wasn’t about Beggs’ being a transgender male.


“I respect that completely, and I think the coaches do,” Baudhuin told the paper. “All we’re saying is she is taking something that gives her an unfair advantage. It’s documented. It’s universal that it’s an unfair advantage.”


He added to the Morning News that the Coppell coaches who forfeited the championship match previously indicated they would do so over safety concerns for Rocha.


But Beggs took to Facebook on Sunday, saying “we want to wrestle each other. I feel so sick and disgusted by the discrimination not by the kids, the PARENTS AND COACHES. These kids don’t care who you put in front of them to wrestle. We just want to WRESTLE. THEY are taking that away from me and from the people I’m competing with. SHARE SO WE CAN MAKE A CHANGE FOR THIS SPORT AND DISCRIMINATION!”


Beggs’ grandmother and guardian is angry about the controversy, saying Beggs wants to wrestle boys but can’t, the paper reported.


“Today was not about their students winning,” Nancy Beggs told the Morning News. “Today was about bias, hatred and ignorance.” She added to the paper that her grandchild has wrestled members of the Coppell girls’ team before and that “they know each other and they were not happy with this.”


Both Beggs and Rocha are headed to the state championships Friday and Saturday in Cypress, the Morning News said.

Indiana lawmaker proposes bill targeting ‘sanctuary campuses.’ Here’s what gave him the idea.

One week after Donald Trump was elected president, students at colleges and universities nationwide staged walkouts in protest of Trump’s hardline immigration stances. In Indiana, specifically, students at seven campuses statewide took part. The students were calling on the administrations at their respective universities to declare themselves “sanctuary campuses,” meaning college officials would not report students who were in the U.S. illegally to federal immigration authorities, WXIN-TV reported.


Federal law currently prohibits immigration officials from going onto college campuses unless there are extraordinary circumstances.


Indiana Republican state Sen. Michael Young said he watched the November protests on television, which gave him the idea to propose new legislation that would make “sanctuary campuses” illegal. There are currently no colleges or universities in Indiana that identify as “sanctuary campuses.”


Indiana lawmakers passed legislation in 2011 banning cities from providing sanctuary for illegal immigrants, WISH-TV reported.


“A governmental body and a postsecondary educational institution may not enact or implement an ordinance, a resolution, a rule, or a policy that prohibits or in any way restricts another governmental body, including a law enforcement officer, a state or local official, or a state or local government employee, from taking the following actions with regard to information of the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of an individual,” Young’s new bill, which was introduced Jan. 10, reads.


The legislation goes on to list several ways in which colleges would have to cooperate with immigration authorities. The methods included “sending [sic] or receiving information from the United States Department of Homeland Security, maintaining information and exchanging information with another federal, state, or local government entity.”


The Indianapolis Star noted the bill would not apply to the estimated 1.8 million “DREAMers” who were brought to the U.S. as children and allowed to temporarily stay under an executive order issued by former President Barack Obama in 2012.


The Indiana state Senate’s Corrections and Criminal Law Committee approved the bill Tuesday in a 6-2 party-line vote. Young’s bill advanced the same day as new Trump administration memos revealed federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were being instructed to deport “any alien who is subject to removal under any provision of the (Immigration and Nationality Act),” USA Today reported. The order could potentially reach all of the roughly 11 million illegal immigrants who are currently in the U.S.


Hector Morales, who helped organize the college campus protests in November, voiced opposition to Young’s bill late last month, telling WISH-TV, “I think [it’s] sad that this bill was created instead of focusing on what Hoosiers believe to be more important like infrastructure, or how about getting better health care for our veterans … or improving education for our students, giving more incentives to our teachers.”


And Morales isn’t the one opposed to the legislation.


“This bill would only intensify the fear the Indiana community is already experiencing,” Karina Garduno, vice president of the Indiana Latino Higher Education Council Board, told the Indianapolis Star. “The fear that inundates their everyday lives is already an interruption in their education, which affects not only the individual directly but also those around them.”


“We have seen the damage that anti-immigration legislation has done to our students already,” Garduno added.



Indiana isn’t the only state that has taken recent action to better enforce immigration laws on college campuses.


Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in December vowed to cut funding to sanctuary colleges and universities in his state just three days after he made the same promise about sanctuary cities in Texas.

Double standard? Liberal actor George Takei once laughed about adult/minor sexual relationships, too

On the heels of the controversy stemming from former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’s comments condoning sexual relationships between adults and teenagers, audio has surfaced of liberal actor George Takei seemingly doing the same thing.


Takei, best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in the original “Star Trek” TV series and movies, joined radio host Howard Stern in 2006 for an interview and, unsurprisingly, the conversation turned sexual in nature. Takei began cheerfully talking to Stern and co-host Robin Quivers about an experience he had in summer camp with a male camp counselor when he was only a 13-year-old boy. The counselor, he said, was 18 or 19 years old.


“I was very young,” Takei said. “He was about 18 or 19, and he was experienced.”


Frequently laughing during his casual recollection, Takei went on to describe the encounter, telling Stern that the camp counselor initiated the interaction when the other boys were gone from the cabin participating in summer camp activities. Quivers chimed in with an acknowledgement of the age difference, adding, “Doing little boy things.”


Stern asked Takei at one point, “And he sat down and he touched you. … Were you molested in a sense, because you were 13?”


Takei told him he wasn’t molested, simply because he enjoyed the experience. “No, no. Cause I was kind of, you know — well, I thought he was pretty attractive,” he said.


After going into sexually explicit detail about the encounter, Takei told them, “It was both wonderful and scary and kind of intimidating, and delightful. I mean, all those opposites.”

Watch: CNN debate explodes over accusation of Trump anti-Semitism

A CNN debate over Trump’s alleged anti-Semitism devolved into a shouting match between Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany and the director of the Ann Frank Center, Steven Goldstein. Erin Burnett moderated the debate on CNN Tuesday.


“After Trump’s remarks today,” Erin asked Goldstein, “you came out very forcefully you wrote, ‘The President’s sudden acknowledgement is a Band-Aid on the cancer of Antisemitism that has infected his own Administration. His statement today is a pathetic asterisk of condescension… Make no mistake: The Antisemitism coming out of this Administration is the worst we have ever seen…’ that is a serious charge.”


“Absolutely Erin,” Goldstein forcefully responded, “time and again this president has had an opportunity to condemn anti-Semitism.”


He had a chance to include Jews in Holocaust remembrance, he didn’t. He had a chance to speak out against the desecration of Jewish cemeteries this weekend, he didn’t. He had a chance to speak out against bomb threats against JCCs (Jewish Community Centers), and he didn’t.


Today when he was forced, obvious by some staffers because it came several news cycles after, he finally spoke out. Is our country so lower in its expectations in what to expect from our president that we’re supposed to say, ‘congratulations Mr. President, you recognize anti-Semitism’?


“That’s pathetic,” he exclaimed.


“Kayleigh, what do you say?” Burnett addressed the Trump supporter, “he was asked directly about it twice in the past week, there were all these incidents, it wasn’t until his daughter tweeted yesterday that he then suddenly in a prepared speech that he read, said the words.”


“For those wanting to give the president a fair chance,” McEnany explained, “you would have heard him condemn anti-Semitism, I have his exact quote when he was asked this question.”


He said, “I want peace in this country, I want to stop crime and long-simmering racism.” That sounds like a condemnation to me. But some people on the left are using the veil of anti-Semitism and the charge of anti-Semitism to further their own political causes. It’s dangerous. I agree with Alan Durschowitz fully, that we should be loosely throwing this term around. And I gotta ask you straight on, so you think the president does not like Jews and is prejudiced against Jews, you think that about the president of the United States?


Goldstein surprised McEnany by agreeing with the statement and adding, “You bet, and you know why?”


You know what, Kayleigh I am tired of commentators like you from the right, trotting out his daughter, trotting out his son-in-law as talking points against the president’s anti-Semitism. They are Jewish, but that is not a talking point against anti-Semitism. And that is a disgrace. Have you no, have you no ethics, to invoke people religion as a talking point? That itself is anti-Semitism.


“Let’s make this dialogue instead of a monologue,” McEnany shifted the conversation. “Do you think the president likes his daughter?”


“You know what,” Goldstein averred, “I’m under no obligation to answer a curveball question. Because it’s a nonsensical question based on nothing.”


MacEnany continued to say that she believed Trump had already answered condemned anti-Semitism sufficiently, and continued with the same line of reasoning, which Goldstein called a “fake news argument.”



Trump has been under fire by many critics who say he has not been forcefully outspoken against anti-Semitism, especially after a recent epidemic of vandalism and bomb threats against Jewish community centers all across the country. Trump had already been criticized for not mentioning the Jews in his Holocaust remembrance statement, and his neglect of the epidemic spurred more condemnations.


They also cited a very terse and dismissive exchange had with Jake Turx, a reporter with a Jewish news outlet, who asked him about the anti-Semitism charges.




Eventually, Trump was forced to make a statement against anti-Semitism Tuesday, one which the Anne Frank Center director found disingenuous and perfunctory:




Trump’s close associates have denied the coddling of the alt-right, which is known for its racism and anti-Semitism, even after Trump advisor Steve Bannon admitted his website, Breitbart News, had turned into a platform for the alt-right movement.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.) angrily denounced members of the Trump administration as being ‘scumbags’ in an interview with Chris Hayes on MSNBC Tuesday.


“I just think the American people have better understand what’s going on,” she yelled, “this is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are. Who are all organized around making money.”


“Those are very strong words, congresswoman,” Hayes asked. “Who do you mean by that when you call them scumbags, who are you talking about.”


All of these people who are organized with these oil and gas interests that’s in the administration and friends of the president of the United States, this back-channelling that you see. These are all a bunch of scumbags, that’s what they are.


“Secretary of state,” Hayes asked for clarification, “you mean the secretary of state of the United States?”


Well I tell you this, Tillerson is there to get these sanctions lifted. I believe it, just watch him. He’s gonna continue to work on it. This is important for him. He was there because he negotiated the deal with Exxon, with Putin.




Rep. Waters is referring to the suspicions and outright accusations from many on the left that the Russians and Vladimir Putin have undue favor with this administration, leading many to believe that Trump has debts to Russia, or is being blackmailed. Republicans and Trump allies have vehemently denied the accusations and characterized them as growing from “fake news” conspiracy theories.


Rep. Waters was mocked by the right recently for attempting to criticize Trump but flubbing a geography detail that undermined her indignation. She’s also one of the few representatives who has been calling for Trump’s impeachment while fighting off her own accusations of corruption after being indicted for charity fraud.

The magazine Teen Vogue stirred up a heap of controversy last week when it released an article titled “What to Get a Friend Post-Abortion.” In it, the magazine details what gifts you can get a friend who just underwent an abortion, such as a book of poems or a hat that says “grl pwr” on it.


But the Students for Life of America have decided to respond to Teen Vogue’s controversial article by putting a young 16 year old girl named Autumn in front of a camera, and letting her explain how Teen Vogue’s article was horrific.


“Since I am a teen, this was directed towards me, and I would like to respond,” says Autumn at the beginning of the video.


“The point of the article was to make the situation seem as light hearted and nonchalant as possible in order to convince girls my age that abortion is not big deal. We need to clarify one thing — abortion is a big deal,” she continued.


Autumn goes on to describe some of the gifts suggested by Teen Vogue, and wonders how some of them would actually be able to allow these girls who have been through something so traumatic, or how killing their baby is a good example of “girl power.”


“By the way, how many aborted babies have been girls?” asks Autumn. “What about their rights? When do girls begin to have power? And how powerful do you have to be to destroy the most helpless of people? To me, abortion seems like the opposite of girl power.”


“If you know someone who has had an abortion, don’t buy them a gag gift and disguise it as a celebration,” says Autumn. “Treat it for what it is. A terrible loss.”

Cosmic Disclosure: Antarctica: The Process for Disclosure

David Wilcock: All right, welcome back to “Cosmic Disclosure”. I'm your host, David Wilcock, and we're here with Corey Goode. Corey, welcome back to the show.


Corey Goode: Thank you.


David: So in our last update we had just gotten up to the point where the dark priestess of the underworld, Marra, had materialized in your room, was acting very sarcastic, as if she had complete control of the situation, and was then portaled back by the Anshar and put in stasis, but they did give you a warning, right?

They said that others like her could show up.


Corey: They stated that there would be some of her kind coming to look for her.


1 Banished Marra


2 Closeup Of Marra


David: Okay. Meaning that they might also visit you as well and you'd have to defend against them.


Corey: Right.


David: Let's go from what happens next.


Corey: Sure. And for the record, none of Marra's people have approached me since then.


David: Okay.


Corey: It's been fairly quiet.


3 Corey Goode


Most of my experiences have now been with this MIC SSP.


4 MIC Craft


I've been picked up a number of times, and in the meetings I've been giving [given] no-questions briefings by the two airmen that had assisted me up and down the stairs of the craft.


David: And that means you're not allowed to ask questions?


Corey: No questions. You just sit there and listen. They were filling me in on more information about Antarctica, what has been discovered down there, how it's being processed, how they plan on presenting it to humanity in stages . . .


David: Okay.


Corey: . . . as well as I was having meetings with who we call Sigmund – the commanding officer. And he has also been sharing interesting information with me, some of which I can't even discuss because it has to do with upcoming meetings that I'm going to have – more of a terrestrial nature.


David: Okay. So, then we've covered the thumbnail of that. Have you also been having Anshar meetings? And if so, what's the jest of those?


Corey: I have had a number of Anshar meetings. A lot of them, Ka 'Aree also preparing me for upcoming terrestrial meetings I'm going to have, letting me know that she's going to . . . for me to not be so nervous. I'm pretty nervous.

She's letting me know that she's going to help me in the process. She's going to be giving me information to communicate.

I've also been picked up one time by the Anshar and taken down to Antarctica.


David: Okay, so when we last spoke on this show, we had discussed the idea that there was interesting stuff going on down in Antarctica, but we hadn't really gotten into this big thing that you were withholding from me. You couldn't even tell me, and we couldn't talk about it on the show.

And that's where our “Endgame II” update begins. So what was the information that you were getting for months that you couldn't tell me and you couldn't talk about on this show that we're now cleared to talk about? What's going on down in Antarctica?


Corey: Well, according to Sigmund's men and Sigmund, they have made major discoveries. In 1939, the German expedition to Antarctica had discovered big slabs of rock with ancient writing on them, and they had taken a bunch of photos with them. After that they started a lot of secret expeditions.


David: So these are things that would remind us of stuff like Stonehenge or the pyramids or something like that?


Corey: A little more like Pumapunku or something, you know, that's really torn up and scattered.


David: Okay.


Corey: So after the Germans had discovered this, they started to, not really excavate for archaeological reasons, they started to clear out areas and begin to use them that they found. They found in cave areas ancient civilization artifacts, and they just moved them out and moved their military groups in and created bases.


5 Antarctic City


So they weren't real interested in the archaeology in the beginning, which sounds not very much like the Nazis since they had archaeologists combing, you know, . . . combing Asia looking for certain . . .


David: Especially groups like Black Sun and Vril where it seems like they are very interested in this ancient history.


Corey: Right. It seemed mission was to hurry up and build this base. That was the primary ob . . .


David: Well, the clock was ticking and they knew that they were not going to be able to pull through on World War II.


Corey: Right. So they had been looking into it, doing some digs here and there, over the decades leading up to where they ended up working with the Americans, the industrial complex, military-industrial complex.

They were doing excavations all throughout the decades going all the way back, you know, from the '50s and '60s.

Now, since then, in around 2002, they started bringing in actual professors and archaeologists from universities. And these are some people that we would know if you're into academics. These are people that we will know that have been going and doing digs and research in Antarctica.

And these people have been told that . . . you know, that's 14 years of research they can't tell anyone about.

And they've been promised that they are going to be brought out in front of the press and allowed to give a briefing and present the documentaries they've made and all of the information they've collected to the people.


David: And one of the stunning things was that you were being told we had to write “Endgame II” as fast as possible.


Corey: Yeah.


David: And two hours after it comes up, tabloids like the Mirror and the Sun, start repeating this same data that we were getting.

And then the next day after we put the update up, one of those same tabloids, I believe it was the Mirror, actually said that there was a team of scientists that had been in Antarctica since 2002, which you had already told me on the phone.

I hadn't remembered to put it in the article, but you had already briefed me on that.


Corey: Right.


David: And then there it is in this frickin' tabloid. And that to me was just so amazing the level of public confirmation of this stuff.


Corey: Right. I was being told that we were going to get scooped, that we had to get the information out immediately.


David: And so you were being told before that came out that, in fact, they had been there since 2002.


Corey: Yes, and what they were finding there is what blew my mind even. They were finding ancient technology that . . . They were finding spacecraft that had been cannibalized to create a new civilization, cities, and so forth.

They found areas that were laboratories for genetic experiments, which apparently genetic experiences had run amok among these Pre-Adamites.

We were finding all types of different humans around, even humans with tails, short humans, tall humans, all different types of humans, along with this original Pre-Adamite being that crash-landed here somewhere between 55~60,000 years ago.


David: What is a Pre-Adamite?


Corey: The alien group, non-terrestrial group, that once inhabited Mars and Malduk, after there were catastrophes mostly from their own doing, and war . . .


David: This was half a million years ago.


Corey: Right. Half a million years ago. Then they end up on the Moon for a period of time.

And then somehow they ended up getting chased off the Moon. There were some attacks that occurred, and after that they fled, but their craft were too damaged leave our solar system or make it to another planetary sphere.

So since they had to crash-land on Earth, they decided that they would go to this one continent that still had working Ancient Builder Race technology that was . . .


David: How old are we talking now?


Corey: The information that was given to me was 1.8 billion years old.


David: What do you mean by technology?


Corey: Well, they only had the technology that they had on these three craft with them. That's all the technology they had.

So they had to cannibalize and repurpose that technology from the spacecraft once they had crash-landed. And there were three that were extremely large. They were motherships.


And they were referred to as the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.


David: So just to be clear, it's not that there's any actual name connection, it's just that Columbus's three ships were called the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. So it's kind of like a tongue-in-cheek joke. You have three motherships that crashed on this continent.


Corey: Right. And they have several of those tongue-in-cheek references in this report.


David: And I want to point out, that this was one of the absolutely stunning details in which I start to ask Pete [Peterson] on the phone, “Do you know anything about Antarctica?”

And he independently says, “They're going to announce that they found a mothership.” He only knew about one – a mothership that was 30 miles wide, mostly circular in shape – that's been found under the ice.


Corey: Right. And so far they've only exposed the area about the size of an oceanliner. But in doing so, they've gained access to one of these ships.

And they've been going in, flying the craft around that were inside it, checking out . . .


David: Wo, wo, wo. They went inside this 30 mile-wide mothership, and they found craft inside the mothership?


Corey: Yes.


David: And they've been able to fly those craft?


Corey: Yes.


David: In the mothership or also outside?


Corey: No, outside. Out of our atmosphere even. They found a number of different types of craft that had different uses, one of which was a very ornate craft that was sort of stupa-shaped.


7 Stupa


David: Like the Tibetan shine that we see so often.


Corey: Right. And they were referring to them as vimanas.


David: Really?


Corey: Inside the program, they were calling them vimanas. Whether they are or not, I don't know.

But these were only for transporting around the royals. They were different than the other craft. They were decorated and had gold on them and were very ornate.


David: And you said that the beings that were inside these craft were Pre-Adamites, but could you just give us a description of what that means?


Corey: Yes. They range 12~14-foot tall. They have elongated skulls. They were very spindly, thin.


8 Egyptian Carving


David: Like Akhenaten, Nefertiti and their children, such as Meretaten.


9 Pre Adamite Male


Corey: Right. And the men had a flabby pocket on their chests – kind of a flabby chest.

And these beings, they've . . .


David: What about skin color?


Corey: The skin color was hard to tell because they had been in a huge cataclysm where they had . . . Some of the bodies, their arms were wrapped around them a couple times. There were big black spots on the skin. They had been under the ice.

They weren't preserved like you see in the movies like an iceman that you can re-animate.

And the biologists that have studied these bodies, done postmortems on them, have said that these are obviously beings that had developed in a much different environment than ours – a lower barometric pressure and gravitational field.


David: Who do you think, or who were you told, shot them down when they made it to Antarctica?


Corey: Apparently these Pre-Adamites have been in conflicts with the Reptilians for awhile. These Pre-Adamites they stated were not good guys at all, but were in some sort of a conflict with the Reptilians, and had actually kept the Reptilians in check here on the Earth during that time that they had crash-landed here.

There had been a couple other smaller catastrophes that happened where they had lost their power and the Reptilians always find an opportunity to come back in in a moment of weakness.


David: So does it appear then that wars between Pre-Adamites and Reptilians occurs almost from the beginning of when they got here?


Corey: Exactly.


David: Okay.


Corey: But after these cataclysms that occurred on Earth, the Pre-Adamites and the Reptilians sort of had a truce or a treaty. And after that point, the Reptilians pretty much controlled all of Antarctica and the Pre-Adamites had zero ability to get access to their ancient technology, their libraries. Everything was down there.


David: Right.


Corey: The people that survived the cataclysm were mostly the genetic experiments. They had created hybrids because they could not operate in our environment very well. And they created hybrids of them and the humans that were here on Earth.

So after the cataclysm, all of the main Pre-Adamites that were pure blood were down in Antarctica when it occurred.

There was a group of these Pre-Adamites, of this Pre-Adamite bloodline, that was in the Central America, South America region, and there was another completely different bloodline group – both royals – in Asia and Europe.


David: Now, when we're looking at the descendants of this original civilization, you said that they came here in three motherships. So I just want to be clear that these are the 30-foot wide motherships that we're talking about.


Corey: Thirty-mile.


David: 30-mile wide. Is that the largest type of mothership that they had?


Corey: No, they found other ships down there as well that are fairly large, but would be like sort of another . . . just a smaller vessel in a fleet.


David: So it's just that there's three big ones but there are other craft as well that were found.


Corey: Exactly.


David: I want to get into the connection to biblical scripture because one of the scriptures that's from the same time as the Book of Genesis, the Book of Enoch, was removed from the Bible but it's referred to by Jesus. It's referred to by a variety of people from that era as a very, highly revered text.

And it describes 200 fallen angels crashing to Earth, being giants, and then becoming cannibals who are actually hostile to Earth's population and were ultimately judged that they had to be wiped out in a big flood.

It sounds like we're talking about the same thing here.

So what's the connect with the Book of Enoch?


6 Corey And David


Corey: It is and the information that I received was that these Pre-Adamites had come down in a . . . they were in the grand experiment.

They shouldn't have been down here living openly amongst us, one. And two, they were now . . . You know, the other 22 genetic experiments that these genetic farmer races were conducting down here . . . this Pre-Adamite group started co-opting it and interfering with it. So they had to be dealt with.


David: And just in case somebody's jumped in and they didn't see those episodes, you described that when the protective grid [built by the Ancient Builder Race] went down 500,000 years ago after the planet [Malduk] blew up and became the Asteroid Belt, that we then have right away these so-called genetic farmer ET races that are then able to get in immediately and begin taking DNA from all over the galaxy and tinkering with Earth DNA.


Corey: Yes. And as we have been exploring more and more of the ruins down there, we've run across rooms that were . . . There were a series of corridors that were sort of arranged the same way you would see a circuit board.

And they were made out of a gold-copper alloy that had weird kind of circular carvings in them that they said were not for people to walk through. It was obviously for channeling large amounts of electricity.

Not far from there, they found the genetic labs where they found all these different types of beings in different stages of being developed.

And I did confirm that it was partially technological, partially biological, how they did these genetic experiments. They would create a zygote, or whatever, and then implant it in another . . . in a human or an animal, have it grow, and then that's how they incubated them.

They didn't have all of their technology. They were in survival mode from the moment they crash-landed.

They had to cannibalize all of their technology from inside of these craft, these big motherships. There's huge areas where stuff has just been ripped out.


David: If they're trapped on Earth, because they crash-landed, but then you say that there are craft that were found inside that can be flown around, doesn't that mean that they could have left Earth and gone anywhere else they wanted?


Corey: Well, yes, they could in the craft, but everything that they . . . all of what they had left of their society was now down here on Earth. And these craft are not long-haul vessels.

The little craft that they have are for, you know, scooting around the solar system. They were stuck here in the solar system.

And of the 22 different genetic farmer races, we have the Reptilians, and it's a hostile place for them to try to fly around. There numbers were small. They were not in a good tactical position.


David: So they could theoretically visit moons of Jupiter, moons of Saturn, places like this, but they didn't have enough duration of fuel, let's say, or whatever travel capability, to actually leave our solar system.


Corey: Correct. Right. And it was pretty hostile out in space during that time. They didn't want to risk an asset like flying it, you know, to Jupiter or whatever. They could lose that asset and they had very few assets left.

But this civilization controlled the entire planet. What little resources they had, they were able to control the planet.

After this last cataclysm occurred, none of the survivors, Pre-Adamite survivors, had access to their technology.

So we mentioned the group that was in Asia, Pre-Adamite group, and there was another one in South America, Central America, they could no longer visit or communicate with each other. They were separated.


David: After the conventional Atlantean catastrophe we're usually thinking of.


Corey: Right. And they had always had some sort of a competition between these two bloodline groups even before the cataclysm.

This whole bloodline of these Cabal or Illuminati-type people, they trace their bloodlines through these Pre-Adamites.


David: So in the Book of Enoch, they're describing this group as the fallen angels.


Corey: Uh-huh.


David: So you're saying these Pre-Adamites with the elongated skulls, that that is the fallen angel storyline.


Corey: It is the fallen angel storyline, yes.


David: But we do have this Cabal, and this is one of the things that our insider Bruce has been saying, whether or not you believe this or not, the only thing that matters is that they do.


Corey: Exactly. Their religion is what . . . I mean that's . . . Their religion is everything. It's behind everything they do.


David: Where do we see this Pre-Adamite culture developing? Where did they hide out in the Americas after this catastrophe?


Corey: In South and Central America is where they had set up most of their enclaves. And they had been set up around other Pre-Adamite structures that were now destroyed because of the cataclysm.

There were huge earthquakes that basically liquified the ground and a lot of the buildings, massive buildings, they had just fell apart and fell and sunk into the ground.

They were running the hemisphere. They were mixing their genetics with some of the indigenous people of South and Central America. That's why we have elongated skulls beings that have a different colored skin but different genetic mix.

They were mixing their genetics with whatever group they happened to be around after the cataclysm.

And going back to the Illuminati religion being based on a lot of what this group did, the Pre-Adamites, you can now see why all of these interesting people have been making trips down to Antarctica recently, including Kerry on election day.


10 Article On John Kerry


David: Right.


Corey: And even some of the royals have gone down there.


11 Prince Harry In Antarctica


David: And now I'm speaking about the idea of some very interesting cargo that was found in those motherships. So could you describe what this precious cargo was that they still had on those ships?


Corey: Well, they had a number of beings that were in stasis. The information I received was that the surviving Pre-Adamites, the bloodline that originally came from another planet, had put theirselves in stasis before this cataclysm occurred about 12,800 years ago.

They have not awoken them yet. They're trying to decide what they're going to do.

Now, another interesting note, we do have these archaeologists and employees of various universities that are down there excavating and documenting all of this, but what they have done, they being the Cabal, I guess you'll say, they have used these large electromagnetic submariines that I discussed earlier to take a lot of archaeological items that they had found in other digs that they were keeping suppressed from humanity, they had them in huge warehouses.

They were taking some of these artifacts down to Antarctica and seeding them. And this one large dig that these archaeologists are going to make public.

They are also removing any body that does not look human. And a lot of the human bodies, they don't look like they were slaves. They have tunics that have gold thread weaved in the tunics. They look royal.

So they're planning on giving us a sanitized disclosure, and then over time they will disclose the Military-Industrial Complex Secret Space Program.

And after they do that, they'll say, “Oh, by the way, yeah, we've got this fairly advanced Secret Space Program, and while we've been out to other planets, we've found very similar ruins as we've found in Antarctica.

So they're going to try to trickle the information down over decades, and not immediately tell us about the ships they found and the high technology and non-humans.


David: You're not talking about necessarily something that you pick it up and it projects a holographic . . .


Corey: Out of place archaeology.


David: Okay.


Corey: They hide certain artifacts to keep the narrative alive of, you know, the Earth . . . we only have 6,000 years of civilization . . .


David: And you say that they're actually finding those genetic remains down there now.


Corey: Right. And a lot of the human, I mean like us, humans, that they found under the ice . . . and this was a . . . they'd obviously been hit by a huge wave that then somehow flash froze . . .


David: An ocean wave.


Corey: An ocean wave, yes. And all of the bodies were referred . . . They jokingly, tongue-in-cheek, referred to it as the “Pompeii on Ice” because of the way all of the bodies were found, some of them huddled together. It was very similar.


David: Could you describe for us what you have personally seen? Obviously, you're getting no-question briefings, but what have you personally seen of what you're talking about?


Corey: I was taken by the Anshar, in one of their egg-shaped craft, down to Antarctica. And Gonzales was with us.


12 Anshar Egg Shaped Craft In Antarctica


When we were taken down there, Gonzales had this like a rucksack that looked like it was military, human military.


David: Okay.


Corey: And when we went down there, he was taking out this like a core sample thing that had a handle on it and a little camera on the end with a long . . . with these long needles . . . looking things . . . that twisted on.


13 Gonzales Taking Photos And Getting Genetic Samples


And he was walking up to each of these bodies, taking either a picture or video, I don't know, and then sticking the core, the needle, in the body, twisting it, pulling it out, and then dropping the core sample in these little plastic test tubes, and then putting them in the bag as he went on.


David: And you say “these bodies” do you mean Pre-Adamite giants?


Corey: Pre-Adamite bodies. There were these hybrids I personally saw in a fetal position, a very short human that had a tail [Corey spreads his hands about ten-inches apart] – you could see the folds of the skin going down on the back and then the tail kind of twisted out and it was frozen. So he was taking genetic samples.

And in the meantime, just before this, the Inner Earth groups were . . . they took us through a wall that hadn't been excavated yet. You could just see just a piece of stone sticking up out of the ice and snow.


14 Portion Of Building Seen Through Ice


It wasn't far at all . . . there was an excavation going on. There were tall lights on tripods pointed down into pits, and they were excavating.


15 Excavation With High Spotlights


They walked us right through the snow and the wall, and this room lit up.


16 Room With Scrolls Books Records


And the room was full of scrolls, books. I mean, it was obviously a library.

The two Inner Earth beings walked up to one particular area like they knew exactly where they were going, opened up this collapsible box basically, and then started grabbing these metallic scrolls and putting them in the box. They were taking them. And these metallic scrolls were like laser etched with symbols.

The stone was . . .


David: Are you saying that the scroll was metallic or that it was a metallic container for a paper-type scroll?


Corey: They were metallic sheets of metal rolled up.


David: Oh, sheets of metal rolled up.


Corey: And it crinkled as they were picking it up. It sounded similar to tin.


David: Uh.


Corey: And on them, you could see there were like laser-etched symbols, and they were removing those before they were located by the people doing the excavation.

I still don't know what was on the scrolls or the significance of them. But when we left, they took them with them onto the craft.


David: Thank you, Corey, and I want to thank you out there for watching us, supporting us here at Gaia and making sure that we are on a path towards Full Disclosure. Thanks for watching.

Cosmic Disclosure: Deeper Disclosures from William Tompkins

David Wilcock: All right, welcome to “Cosmic Disclosure”. I'm your host, David Wilcock, and I'm here with the insider's insider, Corey Goode, who has brought us a truly incredible repository of cosmic information that has now been verified by the insider William Tompkins, who at 94 years old, is a World War II veteran who has provided stunning corroboration of what Corey has had to tell us.

So, Corey, welcome to the show.


Corey Goode: Thank you.


David: So what we're going to do now is we're going to begin with a little excerpt of some of the things that Tompkins has been sharing with us about the amount of unlearning that is going to be necessary as we move into Full Disclosure. Let's take a look.


* * * * * *


SELECTED BY EXTRATERRESTRIALS


William Tompkins: People all over this planet, for at least 6,000 years, have been influenced by extraterrestrials: the Dracos and the Reptilians.

They have taken the information that is in, essentially, every school on the planet and they've modified the information. All history documentation in this country and in every country on the planet have been given lies about astronomy, lies about mathematics, lies about technical capabilities, lies about the universe, you name it. Okay?


1 William Tompkins


Everything have been lies. Every PhD on this planet, whether they're scientific, whether they're medical, makes no difference. Every book that they read the six years they were in the university are lies. They are not telling the truth. They were not taught the truth.

At that time [when World War II began], we had 34 admirals in the Navy. All of them had been through Annapolis. They learned how to learn everything about the Navy, everything about history, everything about mathematics, everything about astronomy, you name it. They learned all lies.


2 James Forrestal


So who did the Secretary of the Navy Forrestal select for this job?


3 Admiral Rico Botta


Turns out Admiral Rico Botta was not an American. He was born in Australia. The Secretary of the Navy selected an Australian man who had not been infected with the lies that the Reptilians had taught us. He was freer of that.

So the Secretary of the Navy was aware of this because he had been contacted by Nordic extraterrestrials, people here trying to help United States. Okay? Very important point.

So when I was selected, I hadn't been to the universities. I hadn't gotten the bad information. I hadn't been given the wrong information. And this is the reason I was selected, because I was knowledgeable of the Navy, I was knowledgeable of what the threats were, but I hadn't gone to the university and picked up all the lies. Very important.


* * * * * *


David: Corey, how do you feel about that? That's a pretty bold, cowboy statement that Tompkins just made here.


4 Corey Goode


Corey: It was common knowledge in the programs. They would talk quite often about how the physics models that we're using down here on the planet are incorrect. And they have not been corrected on purpose.

They use different hyperdimensional mathematics models than what are used down here. You know, the physics models, . . . You know, we're still on this quantum and, you know, classical physics model.


David: Sure.


Corey: While they are deeply into this electro-plasmic universe model of physics, which is the true model.

And another thing he mentioned was that they wanted people that had not been, I guess, corrupted by this incorrect education. That is VERY COMMON in the programs.

That's why they were taking children in, because we were not front-loaded yet on different religious ideas, social programming. A lot of that hadn't occurred yet. So they had basically a blank slate to work with.


David: It is interesting isn't it, the government studies that have shown that if they did disclosure, the two groups that would be the most hard hit by it would be religious people and scientists.


Corey: Yep, the academics.


David: So do you think that this science itself becomes a religion?


Corey: Absolutely. We spend life using every experience or information that we've heard from people we respect, we use that as little pieces of sand to grind into a lens that we use to hold up to all information coming in to interpret it.

Those are all belief systems. They're all religions, even science.


David: Yeah. He also mentioned astronomy. And where do you think astronomy has fallen short?


Corey: I think that keeping astronomers ignorant of the electro-plasmic universe model sums it up.


David: Right.


Corey: They are making calculations on what they're observing and using incorrect math to make the calculations.


David: If we're acknowledging that Reptilians exist, how would that happen?


Corey: Well, you often hear that the “victors write the history”. Beings that are in control dictate what the minions get to hear.


David: Right.


Corey: And it's all done for control purposes. If you keep people ignorant, it's a throwback to people not being allowed to read back in . . . thousands of years ago, or currently in some places now even.

You're keeping people ignorant so they don't begin to think, or they don't have the ability to do further research on their own. They have to go by what they are told.


David: So when you say “the minions”, you're saying that we have various pressure points in our informational system, our educational system, that can be manipulated. Humans are being manipulated, maybe wittingly, maybe unwittingly, by an extraterrestrial agenda in terms of what information makes it into the universities.


Corey: Yes. They've been able to get us to program ourselves through social norms – what's socially acceptable. That's programming. That's a control system.

And the same goes for educational systems.


David: So how does this play out in terms of other civilizations that go through the same thing? What would we expect to see as this knowledge embargo breaks down?


5 Mica


Corey: If you remember Mica, he's an ambassador from a nearby planet, that they've already gone through all of this change that we're starting to go through.

And what he stated is that after we get the truth, or a full data dump of a Full Disclosure, we're going to go through – after we go through the five stages of grief, you know, denial and all that – we're going to go through a consciousness renaissance.

All these brilliant people that are scribbling down these math equations that they think are so brilliant, and they are given this hyperdimensional model? They've still got brilliant brains.

And they're going to take this correct science and mathematics and they're going to run with it.


David: How does our relationship to the universe change once the science is authentically given, instead of this reduced model?

What do we look like now as conscious, sentient beings in this universe?


Corey: If you take away a lot of the mystery of the universe, you're empowering people both intellectually and spiritually. They've got a lot more room to grow.


David: What do you think it does to consciousness once this science suppression is removed? How do we see consciousness differently?


Corey: Consciousness, I believe, is going to evolve to the point to where we are able to – when we have these correct models, we have Full Disclosure, we have a better understanding of the nature of the universe – we're going to be able to not only understand our place in the universe, but our place on the planet and in our various societies.


David: Do you think that it will be more commonly accepted that consciousness is a field and not just something localized in the brain?


Corey: That's one of the sciences that has been suppressed. So, yes, that will be revealed.


David: What personal experience did you have with that science being suppressed in your programs?


Corey: Well, it was just common knowledge that the powers of the human consciousness were being suppressed on the Earth, because our co-creative consciousness interacts with matter, because we can interact with matter.

The same people that are controlling what we learn scientifically, they're able to control us by causing us to . . . It's like the root of their magic.

They will create a catalyst and cause us to manifest something into occurring.


David: What do you think happens when we get to this idea that there is only one consciousness in the universe? How does that affect us once that becomes public?


Corey: Well, we figure out that we are all One. We're not as different and separated as we think we are.


David: Cool. All right. So in our next segment, we're going to go more into detail about the packages that Tompkins referred to only briefly in other episodes.

I really didn't understand all the semantic depth of the word “package” until I got this knowledge. And I think you're going to be really fascinated too. Let's take a look.


* * * * * *
GERMANS AND ETs


William Tompkins: They found out about extraterrestrials advising the SS in Germany and Hitler on how to build massive spacecraft carriers, how to build massive space cruisers to operate with the Reptilian Draco space navy.


6 German SS


7 Hitler


8 Solar Warden


9 LOC And Dark Fleet Craft


10 Royal Draco


Now, what this turned out to be, after I got heavily into this, was this is the first time anybody in the United States knew that extraterrestrials were actually here on the planet and actually were working with Germany, had agreed, legal agreements, with Hitler.

We then had these Navy spies, which we had operating there 24 hours a day from 1942 to the end of the war.

I worked in that office. The Admiral's aide would wake me up after 12 o'clock at night. He would tap me on the shoulder in the barracks.

All he would say is, “He's here.” I would get up, dress real fast. The aide would take me over to the tall building, the command center. We'd go upstairs to a small office at the top of that building, not the regular big Operation Command rooms, small office.

The Admiral would be sitting at the head of the table. The operative would be on the backside. I'm sitting next to the Admiral and one of the three captains is sitting next to me. The typist is sitting on the other side at the end of the table.

But actually what the operatives brought were perspective sketches of different research that's going on inside of laboratories.


11 UFO And Germans


They took photographs of the Germans next to the UFOs. Some of them were only 40 feet in diameter. Some were 250 foot in diameter.

So to try to put a perspective on this, these documents then, we put together what was called packages.

These types of packages, which are contracts to all of the Army, all of the Navy aerospace organizations' laboratories, and all of the aircraft companies, biomedical research companies, all over the United States.

Everybody got at least one package. Many people got as many as 10 or 12 packages to study. That was going on the whole length of the war.

It's a contract that they are required to implement the study. They're not being asked, “Are you interested?” No. So it's a different contract, okay? It's a requirement.

And, of course, it's way above “Top Secret”, but we don't have the documents stamped that way.

So the package then contains all this different information about, say, communications. All of it totally unreal to any possible engineering group.

So, like say, your President of Engineering at Northrop. The package that you guys got was in German. Okay? Some of it was in hieroglyphics. Nothing that you had in a package would be understandable.

You don't know the mathematics. You don't know the writing. You don't understand the photographs. You don't understand the rough sketches that the Navy operative makes.

So you're handed a box full of very poor information. You are required to take that and run with it, but you have no background. You don't have any book on any subject that you can flip through the pages to try to figure out what this even is.

You don't even know it's communications. It might be part of a propulsion system.

So this is why it was so difficult for all these people that got a package to take this and try to figure out what it is. Yes, it was a big learning curve for the Germans and the SS, but they had the vehicles.

We just had paper and a couple of parts. I mean, it was very difficult for the United States with the top people in the country to take this and then come up with, “How do I copy this? How do I make one of those? What is it?”


* * * * * *


David: So Corey, the first thing that jumped out at me in what we just saw was when he said that he was woken up at midnight, and that that was when he was taken up to have this meeting in which they're actually putting these so-called “packages” together.

Why do you think it was necessary for him to be woken up in the middle of the night to do this work that . . . I mean, wouldn't there be a secure room that he could go to during the day? Why do you think that was necessary?


Corey: Most likely it had to do for the security of the operative. They want to bring him in when there's a skeleton crew at night taking care of regular duties.

It's going to make it easier for them to sneak the person in.


David: So people don't see it. There's less espionage potential?


Corey: Right.


David: Okay. And he mentioned that some of what these people were able to get out of Nazi Germany, these – he didn't mention the number, but it was 23 embedded spies – he's said that before – all throughout World War II – included photographs of people, soldiers, I guess, standing in front of UFO-type craft that could be anywhere between 50~240, I think he said, feet in diameter.

I'm curious as to whether any of those documents survived and whether you got to see any of them while you were in the programs.


Corey: There were stuff like that all through the glass pads. But sort of like how he was describing, a lot of the information, it wasn't contiguous. It was kind of just haphazardly there.

You'd go through a lot of information that I didn't understand. There would be photos. There were many photos of Germans and craft.


David: He also mentioned hieroglyphics. And that might be something that our viewers were wondering why that would have occurred. What would the hieroglyphics be?


Corey: The hieroglyphics could be a security code, but in this case, it sounds like no one understood what they were. So they were most likely nonterrestrial script of some sort, iconography.


David: So this could be something that a spy maybe had a spy camera and took a picture of something that was on an extraterrestrial craft. And maybe he even didn't know what it was, but he's just smuggling out that intel? Something like that?


Corey: Right. Yes. Lots of bits and pieces. Back then, especially, there was no computer terminal they could go to and download things to a thumb drive and then go back to their superiors. They had to be very careful. But they were just getting little bits and pieces.

And they would have like a diagram. The diagram they would bring back; they would give to the people.

And if they didn't have anything to add verbally about what the diagram was about, they would have to reverse engineer just a diagram.


David: Are there extraterrestrials, to your knowledge, that would use some type of hieroglyphic language?


Corey And David


Corey: Yes. Most of the written languages are a type of glyph or looks like hieroglyphic. And one character or symbol can mean different things depending on the context it's used [in]. And one character can mean quite a bit.

We're pretty limited in using just one character at a time.


David: Sure. He mentioned that some of the groups that were getting these packages were biomedical. Why do you think that would be?


Corey: Well, the Reptilians handed over genetics to the Germans very early on. I think . . .


David: I'm not sure what you mean by that.


Corey: Well, when supposedly DNA was discovered like '53 or '56, something like that, well it, actually, was well-known in the programs, and scientists were using genetic engineering way before we supposedly discovered it. And they were testing it on soldiers a lot of the time.


David: Do you think that part of this biomedical packaging could have been in the development of cloning technology?


Corey: Absolutely, yes. We were giving cloning technology for creating – just like out of “Star Wars” - creating a force of soldiers that could be used as cannon fodder. That if you were to lose a few thousand of them, it wasn't going to be that big of a deal.


David: Is this something that basically kind of allows you to print an organism, like you don't have to wait for it to gestate and grow into adulthood over the course of 20 years?


Corey: Well, they're growing these things also in these temporal fields.


David: Right.


Corey: And they can make it look like a little zygote grows up into a full grown human in a couple of hours.


David: Wow!


Corey: But the zygote in the field is experiencing 20 years.


David: Right. Time acceleration.


Corey: Right.


David: Another thing that I think some people, maybe like the nuts and bolts, meat and potatoes, UFO researchers like your Richard Dolan types, would maybe stammer on a little bit was when he said that the documents were not stamped “Classified”.


Corey: That's common. That's how you disavow information.


David: I don't understand.


Corey: Well, let's say he got in a car wreck on his way to deliver a package, and he was unconscious. And someone happened to go through his car, found this package.

It would just be some very interesting and strange information to him.

If it was stamped “Top Secret”, or any of the other indicators, then it's going to legitimize what is in the package and legitimize it as being an intelligence briefing.

So many intelligence briefings are delivered without any type of classification at all.


David: Were a lot of the documents that you saw in the glass pads not stamped “Classified”?


Corey: I rarely saw any stamps like that.


David: Really!


Corey: There would be like date stamps with signatures and different things like that, but I didn't see a whole lot of “Classified” or “Top Secret” stamped on them.


David: So then why would they stamp any documents “Classified”? Is that where more people are going to be handling them and they're worried about leaks?


Corey: Yes. You stamp things for management purposes, for people managing the documentation.

“Oh, I need to handle this with care, because it says 'Handle with care'.”


David: Right. All right. So now we're going to have another segment for you. And in this case we're going to get into the dissolving of the official Nazi government as it was at the end of World War II and the interesting historical question of what exactly happened to these people who had access to extraterrestrials, highly advanced technology, and all of this knowledge that could be applied to what later became the Secret Space Program.


* * * * * *


WHERE DID THE GERMANS GO?


William Tompkins: By the end of the war, Germany had already removed massive, not underground, in mountain. This word 'underground' shouldn't be used. All over Germany and the occupied countries, Germany was building mass production of a dozen different types of extraterrestrial vehicles that were given to them by the Dracos. Okay?

So these are in mass production, not just prototypes kind of things. They've gone into mass production using slave labor with hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of in-mountain massive facilities.

80% of that had all been removed from Germany six months before the war ended. It had all been taken to Antarctica, and they were continuing the construction down there.


12 Germans In Antarctica


They had access to these with their submarines.


13 Germans On Submarine


The built massive truck submarines, enormous submarines, to bring all this stuff down to Antarctica.

So the submarine, still submerged, goes through these tunnels. They go back through the tunnels, and they get to a lake where there's all these facilities and the cities and naval bases and towns and thousands of people.


14 Paperclip 1


And so Paperclip, we got the different people, and they certainly helped.


15 Paperclip 2


They came in and sort of took over all of the aerospace companies and all of the biomedical research companies. Okay?


16 Apollo Vehicle 1


And actually the Apollo vehicle was just one of the studies of the German ICBM bullets to have been used against New York and all the big cities in the United States.


17 Apollo Vehicle 2


They just hadn't gotten that far by the end of the war.


18 German Bimomedical Research


The German biomedical research people came over with Paperclip, too. And they set up operations in, for instance, Scripps Research, medical research, and eastern research companies.


19 Scripps Research Institute


They went and worked for them. They got jobs working for them, and then they started to come up in that organization. And then they took over the operation and were then very skillfully and diplomatically implementing many of these medical analysis, which are of extraterrestrial civilization people's history, which they have been doing this out in the galaxy for thousands, hundreds of thousands of years.

They may have only recently come here, but they've been involved here for over 6,000 years. And we're just now looking over this fence, holding on with our fingertips, and looking out there and figuring out what's going on.

It's really about where we are.


* * * * * *


David: He said that there were hundreds of production facilities. And he shied away from the use of the word 'underground'. He said 'in mountains'.

He said hundreds of facilities often involving slave labor in which these advanced Draco craft were being manufactured.

That's a shocking statement. And I'm curious as to whether you can independently corroborate that from what you heard.


Corey: I don't know about hundreds, but there were a large number of these types of cavern-type bases inside mountains in occupied Europe.

I had not been told that they were given to the Germans by the Draco. I was told that this was all a German operation, that they had dug out . . . I mean, these were dug out tunnels that they used slave labor to do. These caverns, . . . they were chiseled out.


David: One of the things that I really thought was interesting about this relates back to what war are the Nazis actually fighting? Because none of these ships actually appeared in World War II to any significant degree except for maybe the occasional sighting of Foo Fighters that American pilots were seeing in World War II.

So why do you think the Germans in the middle of World War II are so busily developing a technology that was not being implemented by them in World War II?


Corey: The Draco wanted them to build these vessels to fly alongside the Draco and do battle.


David: But where?


Corey: Out in space.


David: Okay.


Corey: They're turning over this technology, to the Germans at the time, for a purpose. And they have to operate within those guidelines.


David: “They.” Who has to operate within the guidelines?


Corey: The Germans. When they receive this technology, they now have to operate within certain guidelines dictated by the Reptilians.

And the Reptilians, they manipulate a lot of the surface stuff going on, you know, wars, and that kind of a thing. It's more of a management, planetary management, thing for them.

They're more concerned about conquest outside of our planetary sphere. And they are known for having conquered races fight alongside them.

I've mentioned the tall Nordic looking group that has the large forehead, six fingers, that are often seen in our solar system working alongside the Draco.

And it's been postulated that they are like what the Dark Fleet is to our planet – a group that either was conquered or made a deal with the Reptilians and then started fighting alongside them.


David: I can't help but be intrigued by this quote based on a class that I had in college that had a deceptively simple name, Contemporary Social Issues, but it was a class in government conspiracy.

And it explained – my professors explained to me in that class – Hitler's tanks were made by Ford Motor Company. Hitler's jets were actually made by Boeing.

And when the plants were bombed in Germany, they were repaid by these allegedly American corporations, who were allegedly fighting the Nazis, to rebuild those plants.

So it almost sounds to me as if the American industrial side was covertly building the war material for both sides of World War II, but then the Germans are involved . . . What they're really concentrating on is this other stuff that's for a war that's not even about World War II at all.


Corey: Correct. Right. It was a much more cosmic operation than the World War that was occurring on the planet.


David: So were the Draco concerned about whether the Nazis won or lost World War II?


Corey: These beings, they play the long game. The war may have served a purpose for them. Whether it was won or lost, you know, we're thinking from a human perspective. They play the long game.

Each of these things they use to set up the next thing. So it sounds to me like they were trying to get the Germans, . . . the World War II situation, . . . put the Germans in a spot to where they needed the help from the Draco.

They were starting to lose. They knew from the beginning that once the Americans got in, that it wasn't going to go well.

So the Germans, they had an agenda, but the Draco or the Reptilians had a much larger agenda that this was just one tiny little piece of.


David: So when he starts to describe the dissolution of Nazi Germany under Paperclip, which, of course, is Project Paperclip, the transfer of German scientists, what happens with this biomedical stuff he's talking about?

He's talking about them going out there, but then he clearly said what appears to be almost like the origin of the whole pharmaceutical corporate industry is being run, secretly, by these transferred Nazis.

And so I'm curious as to what might be the agenda for Germans from World War II building a pharmaceutical corporation, which, according to what Tompkins said, is now the origin of Big Pharma in general.

Why would the Fourth Reich by controlling Big Pharma? What's the purpose?


Corey: When you have control of pharmacology, I guess, you can . . . I mean, people are so trusting of a pill.

Who knows what exactly that pill is actually doing to us? Is it helping suppress our consciousness?

I don't understand why they are doing it. I don't know the specifics. I think it's a multiple agenda-type program.


David: So do you think that part of the suppressed science might be that there are natural remedies for certain things that the pharmaceutical industry poses as if they are the only answer for – such as depression, ADD, things like this?


Corey: Absolutely. The planet provides us everything we need for medical, psychological, trauma healing. It's all in the jungles that we are burning down.

And that might be one of the main reasons we're burning them down.


David: All right. Well, that's all the time we have for in this fascinating episode. I sincerely hope that we get to the point in which this is a forensic document that is absolutely essential in the process of Full Disclosure.

And I thank you for being here on the vanguard of that social and cultural awakening with us here on Gaia.

I'm David Wilcock with Corey Goode and William Tompkins. This is “Cosmic Disclosure”, and we thank you for watching.

Cosmic Disclosure: Transformation Power of The Great Solar Flash

David Wilcock: All right, welcome back to “Cosmic Disclosure”. I'm your host, David Wilcock. And we're going into part two of our examination into the great solar flash with our special guest, Jay Weidner, who has been researching this exact subject and how it relates to alchemy and how it relates to Stanley Kubrick and the movies “2001”, etc., for many, many years now.

He's one of the only people out there who's been doing this longer than I have. So, Jay, welcome back to the show.


Jay Weidner: Hey, thanks.


David: Corey, welcome back to the show.


Corey Goode: Thank you.


David: So we're going to get right back to where we were with the Brown Notebook, which is amazing information given to someone who was actually contacted in person – just like what's been happening to you, Corey – brought on board a ship by benevolent beings, brought up there, given a tour, and then they get telepathic information, which comes in the form of this channeling.

And what we're seeing here is one of the earliest verified channelings from the 1950s. This guy W. B. Smith gave people a list of 200 questions, and everybody who answered in the same way, he was able to verify, because it was based on classified intel.

So people all over the country who have never spoken to each other, they all could answer these questions properly.

This is a verified channeling. It's one of the only ones we have. And when you read what W. B. Smith said about those channelings, he said it contained religious-sounding information about the end of the age. But he never went into detail.

Now, look at this. This is mind-blowing.


1 Brown Notebook 1


“I'm happy to be with you this morning. The things we will talk about this morning are very serious. Humans in their present state on your planet must change in order to survive. Many things will take place on this planet. Therefore, you will have to change with the planet.”

Now check this out.


“This solar system is moving into an area of space where the vibrations are much higher. This will cause changes in your planet's features. It will also cause changes in your peoples. The vibrations on the planet will become higher. Therefore, you will have to raise your vibrations in order to exist on your planet. These vibrations can only be raised by the peoples' thinking.”

Jay: Well, there you go.


David: I mean . . .


Jay: Wow!


David: That's the money shot right there.


Jay: That really is.


David: Now, Corey, do you think, based on this, that if the Sphere Alliance is putting up an outer barrier around the Solar System, and these ETs, these Draco, Orion-types can't get out, do you think that, based on this kind of information, that they're just not even going to be able to exist if they stay in here once this happens?


2 Corey Goode


Corey: That's exactly what the Sphere Being Alliance communicated to me.


David: Oh, they did?


Corey: Yeah. And not only the Draco, but other non-terrestrials that are here intervening. They will not be compatible with the new vibration, or energy.


David: Let me just play devil's advocate for just a moment. Don't you think it's possible that, for people in the Cabal, that if they're looking at these benevolent ETs, or allegedly benevolent ETs, as actually facilitating things like the fall of Atlantis, which we talked about last time, things like this, in which there actually is a mass death of negative beings, don't you think that the negative beings could see these benevolent beings as terrorists?


Corey: Oh, yeah. Yeah. They're going to see them as the enemy, of course.


David: Because they just want to be able to go on doing what they're doing forever and not be interrupted.


Corey: And according to their theologies and philosophies, they're doing what is 'good'. So they see these, what we call benevolent beings, they see them as evil.


David: Now, Jay, why do you think it's necessary for these negative entities to physically expire?


3 Jay Weidner


Jay: Well, because they're dictators of the whole Solar System, and this is a good thing.

Fulcanelli tells us in his chapter on the Cross of Hendaye that many beings will die when this event comes, all right, but not all. And I think he was really talking about this cleansing, a cleansing of the whole area and getting rid of a lot of negative entities.

So I think that they are going to die, and I think that they're really worried – very worried. And I've heard this from other sources, not just Corey.


David: I mean, how bizarre is it that we got this guy – I think it's Nebraska or something like that, in the middle of Nebraska – [who] doesn't know anything about ancient prophecy? He's just an ordinary dude, gets brought up there, and they start giving this information through him.


Jay: Definitely my sources have told me that in the 1950s aliens began telepathically talking to very good humans, giving them information in order to facilitate the evolutionary shift of the human race to bring us into a larger manifold. That's what I've been told.

And the Sun is a central part of this thing. And the change that the Sun is going through is a central part of this thing.


David: Now, Corey, in The Law of One – we discussed this already – there was a statement about the idea that the illusion of space-time is granted for us to have the experiencer of seeing the results of our actions.

Do these . . . Is death part of the illusion of space-time?


Corey: Well, I guess it would be, since we're having our experience within that medium. But death is a part of also the learning experience.


David: So these beings aren't really dying per se. They're just being removed from one level of the planetary or interplanetary game.


Corey: They're being, I guess, recycled.


David: Right. And because space-time is ultimately an illusion, it does appear that these potential . . . that these periodic mass catastrophes, although there is the appearance of physical death within the illusion, that it's more like gardening, right?


Jay: Hm mm.


David: It's like plowing the field to harvest.


Jay: Yes.


David: What is the harvest? What happens, Jay?


Jay: Yeah.


David: It's the tilling of the soil, right?


Jay: That's right, yeah.


David: So what do the alchemists think about this idea of the metaphor of rebirth? They've used the 'new dawn' language in this.


Jay: Yep. They are not . . . They don't believe that death is the end. They believe that you want to extend human life to give each human enough time to figure things out. And they think we've been somehow messed with, so we have a short lifespan. And so we can never figure things out.

We die at like 70, 80, and that's it, right? And it's really not enough time to actually figure things out.

So alchemists try to do things to extend their life so they have more time here to figure it out. And the alchemists lore is that the average human can live to be 300 to 800 years old.

And just imagine if we lived to be 800 years old, how the world would be changed. There would be no wars, because nobody's going to fight war if you've got 780 years left to live, right?


David: Sure.


Jay: You're not going to have children until you're 200 years old. You're going to be very wise when you have children. Your children are going to be very wise.

You go to college until you're 150. You know what I mean? I mean, it's just a completely different world, and they've denied this to us.

The patriarchs in the Bible lived to be 900 years old, so . . .


David: Right.


Corey: Well, even the oldest and wisest among us right now are still spiritual children.


Jay: They are. And it's a very important part of our future to have us live longer lives. I think that's part of the vibratory change that's going to happen. And we're going to start living longer.

We already are actually living longer lives. When my grandparents were in their 60s, they looked like they were in their 90s, right? Nowadays, people in their 90s looked like people who used to be in their 60s.


Corey: And it's not because of all the pharmaceuticals we're pumping through them?


Jay: Ha, ha.


Corey: Ha, ha.


Jay: I hope not. Again, the pharmaceuticals could be a way to mitigate the shift that they don't want, right?


Corey: Yes.


Jay: Right? The fluoride in the water – when did it happen? The 1950s, right? And what does fluoride do? It calcifies your pineal gland.


Corey: Well, on that point, they do put things in the food and water that have metals and things that bring down our density, that keep our density lower.


Jay: That's right. We know that.


David: Well, the first Project Camelot whistleblower, alias, Mr. X, said that he was going through documents at a military defense contractor, and documents from the 1950s described that meeting with what you were calling the Blues and Eisenhower, in which the government denied them their request to bring us into a peaceful age as long as we had nuclear disarmament.

But then they said, “If you cover this up, you can get away with it up until 2012, and at that point we're coming back whether you like it or not. There's nothing you can do about it.”

So, Corey, since so many of these prophecies have revolved around the year 2012, the Mayan Calendar end date – there were crop circles that said it – does it appear, since you're got this date range of 2018 to 2023, that maybe we got an extension to have a little more time from what the original intention of the end date was?


Corey: You know, I don't know, but it's become very obvious from the panic and how quickly things are changing in the programs that the 2018 beginning date has obviously moved up.

Things are happening very quickly. So I think things are happening before these different Cabal groups had planned out. They were using these different techniques to view the probable future, getting information from non-terrestrials, and they were basing their plans on that – on that date.


David: Well, we're actually not done with The Brown Notebook. And if this hasn't already blown you away, there's more to come. So let's check that out.


4 Brown Notebook 2


“Thinking better thoughts of everything in the creation, more spiritual thoughts, thoughts that will lift the people of Earth out of the darkness and mud they have lived in for so long. The principal of free will still exists. You may change and live on this planet in a true divine kingdom, or you may choose not to and destroy yourself and then be reincarnated back in another third-density, materialistic world, where you continue to try to learn your lessons. You should change so you can see the revealing of this divine kingdom. This has been a rather long message, so I will leave you now.”

David: So what they're saying there is the idea of planetary recycling, people being transported.

So, Corey, when we have these giant Spheres coming into the Solar System and then The Law of One source says that their job is the management and transfer of planetary populations, how do the Spheres . . . do you think . . . is it possible that those Spheres will be transporting people to other worlds once this transition is complete based on what we're seeing here?


Corey: It's absolutely possible because that's how they've transported me.


David: Ah, right. So why wouldn't they have the technology to portal out people by the hundreds of millions or billions?


Corey: Oh, yeah, easily.


David: The same way that they just did with you.


Corey: Yeah. And if they can use these Spheres to contain the entire Solar System, that's child's play to them.


Jay: And I've heard from high sources that they can just - “pfshht” - pick you right up and take you away. It just happens in a flash. And a lot of these missing people disappear this way, I think.


David: Absolutely.


Jay: Yeah.


David: Now, this is another quote from a later session. It's the same kind of thing – totally amazing.


5 Brown Notebook 3


“This planet and solar system are moving into a new area of vibrations in which the conditions as they are now on this planet will not survive. That is why the people of this planet must learn the truth concerning the divine creation. Love, peace and harmony is all that will exist in the true creation. Many will not believe our story, but if they do not they are not punished . . . They are simply [David clears his throat] removed to another planet, in a just manner . . . where they will try to learn their lessons of love, peace and harmony all over again. . . .”

Jay: Interesting.


“People of all planets must live in love, peace and harmony if they are to receive the full blessings of the divine kingdom.”

Jay: Nice.


David: So once again, they're reiterating that everybody has to learn this, and if you don't get it, you continue your education on another planet somewhere else. And again, this seems totally to be what's happening with these Spheres.

We're actually seeing the technological or more measurable physical aspect of how they all kind of come in at the last minute right before this thing's going to happen.


Corey: Right.


David: Do you think . . . I mean, the Spheres have to be here to do something, don't you think, Jay?


Jay: I do.


David: They're not just there for show.


Jay: I do. This is very interesting, because, I mean, you know, that's . . . it's almost like the New Age Rapture. It makes you wonder if this is where the Rapture and all of that came from.


David: Absolutely. Let's go on [and] have another one, because this is actually talking about the Cabal now and then why that change is necessary.


6 Brown Notebook 4


“Others try to rule by force. This should not be. Free will was created, but why should the wrong thinking of a few be forced upon many? All of these things are making an unbalanced condition on and around your planet. At times, the [father-mother-god] has to rebalance some of the planets and solar systems. That is what is about to take place on your planet. Conditions on your planet can cause unbalance in the whole Solar System, so it must be balanced back into the harmony of the creation.”

Jay: There you go.


David: So doesn't it sound like here, if they're saying . . . and they're using a patriarchal term, but as people are reading, “the Father has to rebalance the planets and solar systems.”

Doesn't that sound like the idea of these Spheres, like the Outer Barrier and all this kind of stuff?


Corey: Well, yes, because one of the things that was explained and shown to me was that these Spheres were spaced out throughout our Solar System and acting as a buffer, like a harmonic buffer, for these energies that were coming into our Solar System to give us more time to acclimate and adjust.


David: And it says here that the “rule by force” is creating an “unbalanced condition” and that they will, or whoever this Father is that they're talking about, has to rebalance what the Cabal has done.

So the defeat of the Cabal is obviously of key importance in this solar-system-wide rebalancing, which they're saying is some kind of flash of energy from the Sun.

I mean, to me this stuff pays off everything we've been talking about. It's just amazing.


Jay: It certainly is. Now it goes back to what I've heard was happening in the '50s. And again, everything happened in the '50s. Everything started there.


Corey: Oh, yeah.


David: Tompkins' data was that 1,500 different people were getting . . .


Jay: 1,442 people. The intelligence agencies had discovered 1,400 people who were in telepathic communication, just normal people, not physicists or anything. There were physicists, but others were guys like this guy from Nebraska and uncovering amazing amounts of knowledge, including Tompkins himself, who was receiving one of the 1,400, and he was receiving information about how to build space vehicles and things like that.


Corey: Now, is this “the 1,442 contactees”?


Jay: Yeah.


Corey: They call them “the 1,442”?


Jay: Yeah, “the 1,442”.


Corey: Huh.


David: Tompkins, in his book, describes that the people he's working with are throwing him these impossible questions and saying, design us a transport vehicle to get from cavern A to cavern B, and we need it by Saturday.

And he has no idea what he's going to do, and then he just channels it. And then they don't tell him what they're doing with it.


Jay: No. And he's unsure of where he's getting the information from. At the same time, he doesn't know how he could possibly build a ship that can house 300 people in a weekend. Ha, ha.


David: And then he concludes that they must be getting it telepathically from extraterrestrials.


Jay: Yes. Right – good extraterrestrials. And you think about if what Corey is saying is true, there's bad ETs here. You don't want to really face them. So how would you defeat them? You would do it this way. This is the most intelligent way to do it.


David: Balance the Solar System.


Jay: Yeah, balance the Solar System by taking good people, like this guy is, and feeding them information and getting him to release it. This stuff should have probably been released in the '50s.


7 Brown Notebook 5


David: Yeah. So now this little quote, I'm not going to go into too much detail except just to say that it says, “I am your teacher and friend Hatton” at the end of the top one, and then “I am Latue” at the bottom one.

Hatonn and Latue are the two beings that were talking to Carla that she was channeling before she starts to channel The Law of One.

So these same beings found their way to Carla. Here's the beings – they're naming themselves – that are giving us these prophecies.

So they're still out there. Nebraska guy is not online anymore, but they jump over to Carla, and they start giving her the information. And that's what tuned her up to be able to receive The Law of One.


Jay: Right.


BAIRD WALLACE: GRAND SUMMARY


8 Publication Date Of The Space Story


David: So now what we have here is this book by Baird Wallace that summarizes all of what these different contactees were saying in the 1950s and '60s. He puts it all together in one unified message.


9 The Space Story And The Inner Light


And I'm going to show you the publication date, June 1972. [i] scanned it right out of the book. You could probably still find this if you really look for it. It's called “The Space Story and The Inner Light”, and I'm going to read you some quotes from this. We're not going to read it from the typewritten form here. You can pause it on your TV if you want to see that.


I'm just going to read it in a nice, favorable way like this.


10 The Space Story 1


“The contact information states that our Solar System is at this time in transit. . .” - remember this is 1972 - “. . . from the Third to the Fourth Density . . . ” [David: There it is. That's all the way back before The Law of One. They're already using the word 'density'.] “. . . of the System of Vela . . . “ [David: That comes from George Van Tassel's information.] “. . . and that this change which literally is a transition into a new area of space is happening now. This movement changes the vibratory rate of the magnetic energies in the nucleus of the atoms of our world now.”

David: So, Jay, this sounds a lot like alchemical.


Jay: It is. It is. Fulcanelli intimates several times in his book, “Mysteries of the Cathedrals”, that the entire human race is an alchemical experiment.

Corey says that 22 different races have come here to experiment on us. Other people have told me the same thing. And I think that, if I may, the experiment, I think, is, can we take a guttural creature, like in “2001”, and transform them into a very advanced spiritual being?

That, I think, is the main experiment. There's other experiments, like Corey says.


Corey: But you're right. It's genetic and spiritual. They say it's genetic and spiritual in context.


Jay: Genetic and spiritual. And as things like Gaia come out into the world, we're raising the vibe of everything and changing the game. And I think that Gaia is a big part of this whole change in consciousness.


David: Let's hear more of what he had to say about this meta analysis of all the different contact information.


“[This event] will have great impacts on the form and expression of plant and animal life on our planet and it will have great impact on the consciousness of [humanity]. This has already started and is being amplified because [Earth humans have] fallen behind the evolution of [their] planet in [their] spiritual evolution and [are] not prepared for this change.”

David: Now, Corey, this is from 1972. Did you hear anything that sounded like that?


Corey: Well, what I said earlier, the Spheres are here to buffer the energy so we can acclimate at a slower rate because the Earth is changing faster than we are. And that's why . . . If they didn't do that, there were going to be more catastrophe . . . Earth changes happening and catastrophes because of it, and there would be fear and all that kind of stuff that would make it harder for us to raise our vibration.


David: So they really have needed this sort of intercession of the Sphere technology because we're not ready, just like it said here in '72.


Corey: Right.


David: Pretty amazing, huh?


Jay: Pretty amazing.


David: 40 years before 2012.


Corey: And them talking about the Solar System moving . . . because I hear people talking about the Solar System as being hit by all these energies . . .


David: Or the photon belt.


Corey: Right. It's shocking to hear that they're saying the same thing the Secret Space Program was saying, is that our Solar System is moving into a part of the galaxy that has like a nebula of clouds, high-energy particle clouds, that are causing changes to our Sun and our Solar System.


David: And you said they were sending guys into those clouds in spaceships to see what happened to them, right?


Corey: Right. Well, they were sending them out there to investigate. And people . . . weird things were happening to them. They were having breakdowns, psychological breakdowns.


David: Well, could you go through that? Like, different . . . Not everybody responds to the cloud the same way, right?


Corey: Exactly. And they were artificially recreating this energy in closed environments and having unsuspecting people go in thinking that they're doing unrelated work and seeing what it did to them. And they were doing it to our own people.


David: What are some of the things that happened?


Corey: Well, people that went in that were like sociopaths, they went nuts. They lost it.


Jay: That's actually what I've heard is about to happen.


Corey: Yeah. And the people that were positively oriented started getting all blissful and just happy and whistling, that kind of thing. And people that had, you know, people that had psychological issues, those became enhanced.


David: Wow! So this is really lining up very beautifully with what he's saying.


Jay: So the good get better and the bad get worse.


David: Ha, ha.


Corey: And the crazy get crazier.


David: All right, so now we're going to go on with this quote from this amazingly vetted-out material and just see how much more it lines up with everything we've been discussing.


“The quality of life in the Fourth Vela Density, which we are now moving into, is the quality of emergence, the recognition from childhood of the Inner Presence of our Creator. [Earth humans] in this cycle, will undergo many changes and refinements in the sensitivity of [their] own [bodies].”

Now, Jay, you said before that there was a really interesting Masonic ritual where they keep you in the dark for a long time . . .


Jay: Right.


David: . . . and then bring you out. Could you just kind of go over that again here?


Jay: Well, again, this goes back to the pineal gland. It's kind of like tricking the pineal gland, you might say. This is a poor man's way of getting the Elixir of Life.

So we know that serotonin is emitted from the pineal gland when light strikes it in the morning. And we know that melatonin comes out of the pineal gland when you're in the dark.


We know that melatonin reverses the aging process, okay? And so what they would do, in my opinion, was they would put you in a dark room for three days, complete darkness, and then your brothers, the Freemasonic brothers, would come, and they would put you into a dark coffin, light-free coffin, and then they would take you to either the top of a mountain or the top of a building, somewhere where you could see the rising Sun. And you're blindfolded.

And if anybody knows the Masonic rituals, this is starting to make a lot of sense.


David: Oh, yeah.


Jay: And so then you're taken out of the coffin, and your brothers face you towards the Sun. They take off your blindfold, and the Sun hits your eyes. And for three minutes, you have to stare into the Sun.

Then you put your blind . . . By the way, it's like a psychedelic experience when this happens.


David: Well, your brain has generated tons of melatonin.


Jay: Absolutely. We know that DMT is very close anatomically to serotonin, okay? And so what you're doing is you're getting almost like an endogenous DMT rush. It's your own DMT, though. It's homeopathic.


David: So it's like the melatonin is methylated. It gets suddenly transformed.


Jay: Into a super-serotonin.


David: Right.


Jay: And then they put you back in the casket, and they take you back into the dark room. You have to stay for 40 days.


David: Total darkness.


Jay: Total darkness. No light. And then what happens is that the super-serotonin turns into super-melatonin, all right?

So first it was melatonin. Then the light activates. It turns into a higher vibratory super-serotonin. And then once you get in the dark, that's transferred to super high vibratory super-melatonin, which begins to almost immediately reverse the aging process.

And supposedly you will lose 15, 20 years in this 40 days that you're in there.

And it's not a pleasant experience, from what I've heard.


David: Do they hit you with light again at the end of the 40 days?


Jay: No, they let you out.


David: Oh.


Jay: That's supposed to be . . . They let you out at night because it's very, very difficult to get back into the light after you've been in this experience. Your eyes are very sensitive. So usually, they let you out at night, and you usually become a night person for a little while.


David: Corey, have you heard of maybe some more advanced, perhaps chemical or energetic, means where some process, like what he's describing, might be able to advance people's psychic ability?


Corey: Well, yes. They chemically enhanced intuitive empaths with shots. Intuitive empaths that I run into are extremely advanced, but if they were to go for like six weeks or eight weeks without these shots, their abilities begin to diminish.


Jay: Right.


David: All right, well let's go on with this because we got a little more of this to get through.


“The whole new vista and scope of the nature of life will open up before them, and they will live with the knowledge of their purpose and a deep, in-dwelling allegiance to the Spirit of the Creator.”

David: That sounds great. Now, we're going to talk about this quote here, about what happens. And, again, we're not going to read it off the paper. We're going to do these nice slides.


11 The Space Story 2


“Summarizing various sources dealing with these events . . . “ [the solar flash] “. . . major rearrangements in the orientation of the planets and the satellites within the Solar System will occur.”

David: Now, before we go on any further here, Corey, have you heard about planetary orbits changing, like maybe the Earth's orbit extending in the number of days it takes, things like that, once this happens?


Corey: Yeah. And also about the orbits of the planets, that unlike some other solar systems, the planets are all askew. They're not in harmony at all. That's . . . Yeah, that's very interesting.


David: Isn't this crazy? 1972.


Corey: Yeah.


“Vulcan, the closest planet to the Sun, will be absorbed into the Sun; . . . “

David: And in The Law of One, they say it's a first-density planet, so it's not visible to us. It's like an energy ball.


Jay: Right.


David: It's not actually visible, but it gets reabsorbed.


“. . . Pluto will be [kicked out of our Solar System]; . . .”

David: It kind of already has been by NASA. Ha, ha.


Jay: It already has. Ha, ha.


“. . . our Moon is expected to leave [the] orbit of [the] Earth and become [its own] planet; . . .”

David: That's interesting. I don't know if I'd agree with that, but it probably will get kicked out, at least jettisoned from the Earth's orbit.


Jay: It is slowly moving away from the Earth.


“. . . and there will be major changes in the orbital paths of the remaining planets.”

David: So I mean, there again is exactly what we're anticipating based on insider data. Now, let's go on and read the rest of this.


12 The Space Story 3


“A new balance will come about, which will result in many advantages to the expression of a more spiritualized life within the Solar System.”

David: That is Ascension, obviously.


“I believe . . . “ [This is the author speaking.] “. . . that this event is literally the cosmic manifestation of the fulfillment of the words which Jesus the Christ spoke in describing these times, the event of the coming of the bridegroom.”

David: And that is in the same book of Matthew right after they talk about the harvest metaphor. The bridegroom is just another symbol – the wedding, the alchemical wedding - . . .


Jay: It's the alchemical wedding.


David: . . . the wedding of flesh to spirit.


Jay: That's right.


David: Like the eclipse.


Jay: That's exactly right. That's what they're saying there. They're talking alchemy there.


David: And Jay, Kubrick is using eclipses and stuff all the time in “2001”, isn't he?


Jay: All through “2001” there's at least five eclipses in the movie.


David: So do you think Kubrick was aware of this biblical analogy to the wedding of flesh and spirit?


Jay: Oh, I do. Absolutely, I do. I believe that he was . . . I don't know if he was a practicing alchemist, but he definitely understood alchemy . . . and the Cabal.


David: Now, why do you think Kubrick at the last minute dissed the guy that wrote the score and then picks “Thus Spake Zarathustra”?


Jay: What do you think? Ha, ha, ha.


David: Well, I already know the answer. I'm just kind of throwing him a bone here.


Jay: I know the answer, too, because Zarathustra was the Persian alchemist. And from the very beginning, he's saying, “This is alchemy. Thus spoke the alchemist.”

And the opening trumpet from “Thus Spake Zarathustra” is over the eclipse at the beginning of “2001”. So there you go.


David: Zarathurstra is Zoroaster, . . .


Jay: That's right.


David: . . . who is the author of the prophecy of Frashokereti, . . .


Jay: That's right.


David: . . . where the Sun gives off this flash and transforms humanity.


Jay: Yep.


David: All right. So we're just going to finish this out really quickly, because we're almost done there. I just want you guys to hear this last little bit.


“The contact sources tell us that the solar emanations from the new Sun will have a direct impact in the refining and spiritualizing of [our] nervous systems as we pass into the new condition of life which celestial events are bringing to this world.”

Jay: Okay. So the “refining and spiritualizing of the nervous system” . . . The nervous system carries electrical currents through your body.


David: Yeah.


Jay: The Sun is essentially an electric Sun, as Corey has pointed out.


Corey: It is.


Jay: And so when the new Sun comes, it again goes through your eyes, hits your endocrine system, changes the nervous system, makes us more electric, advanced. So we can live longer.


David: Right.


Jay: We're light bodies.


David: And the eclipse is like a metaphorical example of a conjunction that's much greater, an alignment that leads to this solar emanation.


Jay: That's right. That is exactly right.


David: All right. Well, Corey, I mean, what do you think about all this from 1972?


Corey: It's unbelievable. I mean, I was two years old. Ha, ha. And this information, I didn't hear until fairly recently from, of course, a much different nonterrestrial source.


David: Do you think there's any possibility that somebody could have faked all this – the guy in Nebraska in 1958 – Baird Spalding [David means Baird Wallace.], 1972, reading all these different vetted-out channelers and how well it lines up with what you know?

Is there any way this could have been faked or somebody could have made this as a big hoax?


Corey: This is way before the time of the Internet, and your average library, I don't know if they would have all this information. And if it did, you would have to hunt and peck for years. That just doesn't seem practical.


David: Well, knowledge was kept secret, too, right, Jay?


Jay: Yeah, of course it was kept secret. This is clearly absolute proof, as proof as you can get, that what they're saying about this extraterrestrial telepathic contact was really truly going on.


David: Absolutely.


Jay: Yeah. I mean, I was around back then. I wasn't very old, but we were not very sophisticated in 1972. This is pretty sophisticated stuff.


David: Yeah, it's stunning. And this is stuff that was classified in secret societies, and yet, these guys in Nebraska are pulling it in.


Jay: And probably driving the Cabal crazy.


David: Oh, yeah.


Jay: Yeah.


David: Oh, yeah. They're trying to stop this.


Jay: Yeah.


David: Well, that's all the time we have for this episode. I hope you're as amazed as I am.

I wanted to present this information to you properly. I've been holding onto this stuff for a long time. I used to always close my conferences with this.

This to me is some of the crown jewels of my whole collection. And now with the three of us together, it's really the right way to present it to you. I hope you've enjoyed it.

This is “Cosmic Disclosure:”. I'm your host, David Wilcock, with our special guest, Jay Weidner, and I thank you for watching.

TheBlaze’s Dana Loesch and Leon Wolf examine how Bannon came to be a part of Trump’s inner circle

The Blaze TV host Dana Loesch spoke with TheBlaze’s Managing Editor Leon Wolf about the alt-right group and their place within the conservative movement, namely, how White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon came to be a top advisor to President Donald Trump.


Wolf, a prominent figure in the grassroots conservative movement, theorized that perhaps Trump settled on Bannon simply because there may have been no better options available. “I remember when his campaign started, no one was going to go work for Donald Trump,” Wolf said. “Everybody was flat out told, people who go work for Trump, you’d better hope he wins, because if he doesn’t you’re never working in this town again.”


“It could very well be that these people that we saw like Lewandowski, and Manafort, and all those other people had nowhere else to turn. And Trump had no where else to turn but to them, because he had nobody else to even tell him how to even theoretically sound like a Republican on the campaign trail,” Wolf added.


Loesch and Wolf continued their conversation about the alt-right movement and whether it should have a spot at the table this week at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference.


CPAC will take place outside Washington, D.C. Wednesday thru Saturday, and TheBlaze’s own Dana Loesch will be speaking at CPAC Thursday morning. The conference is aimed at gathering grassroots conservatives together in order to unite through knowledge and activism.

Poll: A good majority of Americans oppose sanctuary cities, and support Trump’s immigration efforts

According to a new poll by Harvard–Harris Poll given to The Hill has discovered that Americans overwhelmingly oppose sanctuary cities.


The poll states that a whopping 80 percent of voters believe that local law enforcement should comply with Federal immigration laws, and immigration enforcement agents. Furthermore, Americans believe that our immigrations laws need an overhaul, and that criminals need to be deported.


The Harvard–Harris Poll survey found strong support for an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws, with 77 percent saying they support comprehensive immigration reform against only 23 percent who oppose.


“While there is broad support for comprehensive immigration reform, there is overwhelming opposition to sanctuary cities,” said Harvard–Harris co-director Mark Penn. “The public wants honest immigrants treated fairly and those who commit crimes deported and that’s very clear from the data.”


What’s more, the majority of Americans seem to approve of Trump’s plans for more security on our southern border, including punishing cities that harbor illegal aliens.


A majority — 52 percent — say they support Trump’s two executive orders allowing for the construction of a southern border wall, increasing the number of immigration officers by 10,000 and finding a way to revoke federal funds for sanctuary cities.


The crackdown on sanctuary cities is the most popular feature of those actions, followed closely by the directive to increase the border patrol, which is backed by 75 percent of voters.


Despite a very loud opposition to Trump’s executive order that paused immigration from high risk countries, it would appear that the poll finds that 56 percent of Americans approve of it until a more reliable vetting system is in place. This approval jumps up to 60 percent when the countries Trump has paused immigration from are described as “Muslim majority countries.”


Finally, it would appear that when it comes to refugees, the majority of Americans believe that so much of it from these countries has a negative effect on the United States.


Forty-seven percent said allowing refugees into the country has a negative impact on the nation, compared to only 33 percent who said it has a positive effect.


When voters are told that the U.S. is slated to receive 100,000 Syrian refugees, 51 percent said that number should be lower, 34 percent said it is an appropriate number, and 15 percent said the U.S. should allow more.


“Americans support both comprehensive immigration reform and stronger vetting and reduced refugees — they want a mix of compassion, strong borders,” said Penn. “They see ISIS as the greatest threat to the country and that is spurring concerns about refugee migration.”


Interestingly enough, this survey had a majority of its 2,148 participants identifying as Democrat than Republican, 39 to 30 percent respectively.

Lindsay Lohan says she was ‘double-checked’ at airport for wearing a headscarf

Actress Lindsay Lohan said that she was intimidated by officials “double-checking” her at an airport because she was wearing a headscarf. She told the story while appearing on Good Morning Britain Tuesday as an example of “abuse” that she had to deal with because of rumors that she was converting to Islam.


“Back in America, it’s a polarizing thing, isn’t it,” Piers Morgan asked, “just to even suggest you might be – you know your picture with the Koran, you get a lot of abuse suddenly and so on. How do you deal with that?”


“I was, when I was flying to New York recently,” Lohan replied, “I was wearing head scarf, and I got stopped. She opened my passport, and saw ‘Lindsay Lohan’ and started immediately apologizing. But then said, ‘but please, take off your headscarf.'”


“Really?” Morgan asked, surprised.


“Yeah, and I did it, I mean it’s OK,” she responded, “but, what scared me is was, is that moment, how would another woman, who doesn’t feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel. That was really interesting to me, I mean I was kinda in shock.”


“And you felt that you had been deliberately targeted because they thought that you were an Arab, a Muslim,” Morgan inferred.


“I don’t know I can’t speak to what the purpose of it was, but it was really, it was jarring,” she said, shrinking from assigning a motivation for the stop.


Lohan said she was “double-checked” by the agent. “Did that freak you out a bit?” Piers asked.


It did, it did. It’s weird, I mean, I’m from New York. I was born and raised there, so, I was a little intimidated.


“What was the reason that you were wearing the headscarf, is that part of your studying of Islam?” asked Susanna Reid, the other host.


Well you know what’s so interesting to me is that, when we look back on Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, and these old Hollywood actresses, they used to cover up the same way. Big glasses, and their headscarf.


“But that’s not for religious reasons, that was presumably for privacy,” Reid interjected.


“But maybe you don’t want to be seen as much in the airport – my red hair doesn’t exactly not stand out,” Lohan answered, again deflecting.


I was doing it because I was leaving Turkey and out of respect for certain countries that I go to when I see certain people, I think, I feel more comfortable acting like the other women, that’s just a personal respect issue for me, that I have. And so I had it on, and also it was really early, and also I just felt comfortable that way. And then I was a little scared… going to America!



Lohan also defended Trump from what she considered to be unfair and knee-jerk reactions from her Hollywood celebrity colleagues.


At the end of the day, he is the president right now. So what is the point of picking on someone, instead of seeing what they’re capable of.


“I do think his Twitter needs to be taken away or deleted!” she joked as the hosts laughed.


On the other side of the debate stands Nazi Paikidze, the U.S. chess champion who boycotted the world chess championship held in Tehran when Iran demanded that she wear a Muslim head veil out of respect for their “morality laws.” Ironically, both Lohan and Paikidze spoke in defense of Trump, who has been under fire from Muslims for his controversial travel ban.

According to The Hill, a group of activists climbed to the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty and unfurled a 2o by 3 foot banner that read “refugees welcome” upon it.




The banner was soon removed by park rangers after determining that doing so would not damage the monument in any way. Police are now looking for the four activists who hung the banner. At this time, the only clue is a man named “David.”


An activist who identified himself only as David told Fusion that he was one of the people behind the banner. He said the idea came about in response to President Trump’s travel ban.


“This was first conceived in response to what’s been called the ‘travel ban’ of the Trump administration, which I think flies in the face of the founding principals of the United States,” he told Fusion.


“I think the Statue of Liberty is our best symbol of the role that immigrants have played and continue to play every day in this country,” he added.


The “travel ban” David is referring to is the one Trump attempted to push through via executive order, but was shot down by the circuit court.

Nigel Farage backs Trump on refugee crime in Sweden, says media is lying

Former UKIP leader and Brexit hero Nigel Farage is backing up President Trump on his comments about refugee crime in Sweden that were mocked by…

Former UKIP leader and Brexit hero Nigel Farage is backing up President Trump on his comments about refugee crime in Sweden that were mocked by the left and many in the media. Farage vociferously accused the media of covering up the crimes while speaking on LBC, a digital radio station in Britain.


“Pro-rata Sweden has taken more young male migrants than any other country in the Europe,” Farage exclaimed.


And there has been a dramatic rise in sexual crime in Sweden – so much so that Malmo is now the rape capital of Europe, and some argue, perhaps the rape capital of the world. And there is a Swedish media that frankly just doesn’t report it.


“And if those comments by me on Sweden have enraged any of you,” he concluded, “then please, feel free to call.”




Farage was referring to a comment made by Trump at his rally in Florida where he appeared to refer to an attack in Sweden the day before – no such attack had occurred. When confronted with it, the administration said he was referring to a report he saw on Fox News about migrant crime in Sweden skyrocketing. The former Prime Minister of Sweden took the occasion to mock Trump on Twitter, sprouting many copycat sarcastic attacks on the president.


Farage followed up on Twitter, posting a statistic from the United Nations showing that the rate of police-recorded rape per 100,000 in 2012 is much higher in Sweden than in other countries.




He added that reported rapes in Sweden had trebled, or tripled, from 2003-2010.


But critics of these kind of arguments claim that the reason instances of rape have increased over the last decade is that Sweden expanded the definition of sexual assaults in order to include more crimes.


For example, the law change meant cases where the victim was asleep or intoxicated were from 2005 included in the rape figures where previously they had been counted in a different “sexual abuse” crime category.


They also reject the comparison of rape stats from country to country, citing the wide variety of reporting standards – something which is an issue in many comparisons.


…even UNODC itself has cautioned against such country against country comparisons, issuing its statistics with the ‘health warning’: “Please note that when using the figures, any cross-national comparisons should be conducted with caution because of the differences that exist between the legal definitions of offences in countries, or the different methods of offence counting and recording.”


They point to the statistics showing a great increase in refugees beginning in 2011, but showing a decrease in instances of rape from 2011 to 2012.




Glenn Beck spoke to Filmmaker Ari Horowitz who has been documenting the rise of crime because of the surge of refugees into Sweden, and the claims that the government and the news media are covering it all up.

American attitudes soften on Putin and Russia, mainly from Republicans

According to a new Gallup poll, opinion of Russian President Vladimir Putin has risen in America, and mostly due in part to Republican sentiments lightening.


Currently, the favorability rating for Putin sits at 22 percent. This is a noticeable rise since the last time this question was asked in 2015, when Americans had a 13 percent favorability rating of the Russian president.


While favorability has risen, Putin’s unfavorability amongst Americans remains unchanged at 72 percent. The difference is that now, less people are saying they do not have an opinion of him.


As Gallup explains, the reason we’re seeing this rise is due in most part to Republicans viewing Putin with less contempt due to Trump’s wish that relations with Russia improve. This is simultaneously having a negative effect on the Democrats.


A major reason for the overall rise in Putin’s favorable rating this year is Republicans’ more positive views of the Russian leader, from 12% in 2015 to 32% today. This comes at a time when President Donald Trump wants to improve relations with Russia, after somewhat frosty relations between the two countries during Barack Obama’s presidency. Independents’ opinions of Putin also have grown more positive in the last two years, but to a lesser extent than Republicans’. Democrats’ views have become slightly less positive, with just 10% viewing Putin favorably today.


How Americans view Putin is mirrored in their thoughts about Russia. 28 percent view the country favorably, while 70 percent view it unfavorably.


Once again, you can see a partisan divide, with Republicans and Democrats viewing Russia with 35 percent and 16 percent favorability rating respectively.


While Putin’s star may be rising in America, he and his country still have a long way to go until they aren’t viewed negatively by the vast majority of the country.

Former Gitmo prisoner built a bomb for ISIS, and guess who paid for it

If you guessed, “British taxpayers,” you’re on the right track.


An Islamic State terrorist who detonated a car bomb over the weekend was a British national and former Guantanamo Bay detainee, the BBC reported Tuesday. Amazingly, he was once paid over a million dollars by the British government essentially as an apology for his treatment while in custody.


Ronald Fiddler, 50, from Manchester, United Kingdom, is believed to be responsible for detonating the explosive device at an Iraqi Shiite army base in Tal Kisum, southwest of the city of Mosul. Fiddler, whose Muslim name is Abu-Zakariya al-Britani, was captured by U.S. forces in Pakistan in 2001 before being sent to Guantanamo Bay prison in 2002. But after just two years at Guantanamo, when he had already provided useful information about the Taliban’s methods, al-Britani was released back to the U.K.


The Daily Mail reported that upon his return to Britain, al-Britani received the equivalent of $1.2 million from the British government after he alleged the country didn’t stand up to his perceived mistreatment while he was an inmate at Guantanamo. In exchange for the sizeable sum, the British government requested that al-Britani not tell anyone about how he was treated.


After traveling back to the U.K. from Guantanamo, al-Britani went on to fight for ISIS in Syria sometime around April 2014.


Al-Britani’s wife, Shukee Begum, and their five children traveled to Syria in August 2014 to try to get her husband to return to the U.K. Al-Britani stayed, and so did Begum and their five children. But Begun insisted they only stayed in Syria for fear of being accused of supporting ISIS back in the U.K, the Daily Mirror reported.


Three years later, ISIS claimed responsibility for the car bomb attack near Mosul, which the terrorist group claimed killed several people, including al-Britani and one other ISIS terrorist. The BBC did not confirm the fatalities in its reporting, and the U.S. State Department did not immediately respond to TheBlaze Tuesday when asked how many people, if any, died or were injured in the car bomb attack.


At its peak, Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba housed nearly 700 inmates, according to CNN. When former President Barack Obama left office, that number had dropped to just 41 detainees. Throughout his administration, Obama argued that terrorists used the detention facility as a propaganda tool to recruit more terrorists and that it should be closed.


President Donald Trump, however, said throughout the campaign that he supported keeping Guantanamo Bay open.

A husband’s heartbreaking note to his wife after they received a devastating prenatal diagnosis has gone viral.


Royce Young posted a picture of his sleeping wife, Keri, on Facebook, calling her a “superhero.”


He said that although they discovered that their unborn daughter has anencephaly — which means she “doesn’t have a brain” — they decided to carry her to term instead of inducing labor early.


Young wrote that he wants everyone to know how “incredible” Keri is for making that decision.


“I thought back to the moment where we found out Eva wasn’t perfect, and how literally 30 seconds after our doctor told us our baby doesn’t have a brain, somehow through full body ugly crying, Keri looked up and asked, “If I carry her full term, can we donate her organs?” I remember our doctor putting her hand on Keri’s shoulder and saying, “Oh honey, that’s so brave of you to say.” Like, how nice of you, but come on. Keri meant it.”


“There I was, crestfallen and heartbroken, but I momentarily got lifted out of the moment and just stood in awe of her,” he added:


I was a spectator to my own life, watching a superhero find her superpowers. In literally the worst moment of her life, finding out her baby was going to die, it took her less than a minute to think of someone else and how her selflessness could help. It’s one of the most powerful things I’ve ever experienced. In the eight years we’ve been married (and 15 years together) I’ve had a lot of moments stop me in my tracks where I thought, “holy crap, this woman I’m married to, lucky me.” But this one was different. It hit me that not only am I married to my very best friend, but to a truly remarkable, special human being.


Young wrote that “this whole process has been rough,” but especially so for his wife.


“Keri has been in the trenches the entire time, feeling every little kick, every hiccup and every roll,” he wrote. “She’s reminded every moment of every day that she’s carrying a baby that will die. Her back hurts. Her feet are sore. She’s got all the super fun pregnant stuff going on. But the light at the end of her nine-month tunnel will turn into a darkness she’s never felt before a couple hours or days after Eva is born. She’s the one that is going to deal with all that comes with having a baby– her milk coming in, the recovery process, etc, but with no snuggly, soft, beautiful newborn to look at to remind you that it was all worth it.”


He added that their daughter, Eva, “is alive and our daughter deserves to meet her mama and daddy, gave us a purpose to continue on.”


“There’s another family out there hurting and hoping for a miracle for their baby, knowing full well someone else’s baby will need to die first. Eva can be that miracle,” Young wrote.



In her own Facebook post, Keri wrote that “Eva will have life even though it will be short.”


“She’ll donate anything she can and do more in her time on earth than I ever will,” she added.


Young told The Huffington Post that the family has been overwhelmed by the online response to his post.


“I love her, and watching her courage and strength is just something that’s inspires me,” he said.


“Keri, like me, is pretty private, and it’s hard to be vulnerable and expose your emotions,” he added. “But this is a unique situation, and throughout everything we’ve talked about trying to minimize regret. And I don’t want to look back years from now and think about how I missed an opportunity to tell people about how terrific Keri is handling this. We want to live in the present with this, and have something tangible to remember it with as we get older.”

Regulation madness: Wisconsin cracks down on nefarious ‘illegal butter’

A butter made in Ireland tastes so good that it has some Wisconsin residents crossing state lines just to get their hands on as many packages…

A butter made in Ireland tastes so good that it has some Wisconsin residents crossing state lines just to get their hands on as many packages as they can keep in their fridge. They have to do this because the state of Wisconsin — along among the fifty United States — has made this butter illegal, using a regulation some argue is intended to benefit the state’s gigantic dairy lobby.


Kerrygold Irish butter, which comes from grass-fed cows free of growth hormones, is a kitchen staple for many butter connoisseurs who will swear the difference between Kerrygold and other butter is unmistakable. It is currently sold in every state nationwide — except the dairy capital of the United States.


An outdated Wisconsin state law from the 1970s requires all butter sold in the state to be tested by a panel of experts and graded for quality. In fact, the state law requires that all butter sold in Wisconsin be tested on 32 different points and given a letter grade in each category. Even though Kerrygold is tested in its home country of Ireland, and even though it has been sold for years in the United States without a single notable safety issue, it isn’t graded in the United States, and thus can’t be sold in Wisconsin.


Not even Kerrygold’s parent company, Ornua North America, knew about the obscure law until their distributors were contacted by the state about the apparently illegal activity. And although it isn’t graded in the state, Ornua marketing director Lisa Miller said the standards by which Kerrygold is inspected should be high enough to accept. “Our process of inspecting is a little bit different from the process here, the standards are universally very high,” Miller said.


Even so, violating the law could result in $1,000 or more in fines and even six months jail time for those who sell Kerrygold butter.


Wisconsin resident Jean Smith told WTMJ-TV she wonders who the law is protecting: consumers or the state’s large dairy industry. “I feel suspicious. Who are you really trying to protect here? Are you protecting the consumers, are you protecting Wisconsin dairies,” she said.


Miller said Kerrygold is working on a solution to bring their product back to Wisconsin. The Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection confirmed Kerrygold’s effort to adapt to Wisconsin requirements and state law.


Industry lobbyist group Dairy Business Association’s Director of Public Relations Jamie Mara told TheBlaze in an email, “This particular law is not a priority for our association.”

Report: Trump admin to scale back on rule expanding Title IX protection to transgender students

The Trump administration reportedly plans to scale back on a controversial administrative rule enacted by the Obama administration that permitted transgender students to use restrooms…

The Trump administration reportedly plans to scale back on a controversial administrative rule enacted by the Obama administration that permitted transgender students to use restrooms and locker rooms that align with their gender identity, rather than their biological sex.


According to the Washington Blade, President Donald Trump has approved a plan with the Justice Department and Education Department to send a letter to schools rescinding the guidance enacted by the previous administration.


“This is the first day of the president’s second month in office and he is now fully coming after LGBT people,” Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality told the Washington Blade. “I’m angry; I’m outraged. This is about kids who just want to go to school who just want to be themselves, and to hear the president a week or two ago talk about how supportive he is of LGBT people, it’s just outrageous that he go after trans kids this way.”


Keisling said she heard of the Trump administration’s plans from “reliable sources,” but White House spokesperson Kelly Love equivocated on the alleged changes, noting that she had “nothing to add to this report right now” but would “keep [the Washington Blade] posted if anything changes.”


Former White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at the time that the White House issued the guidance in a response to parents, teachers and students nationwide as school administrators were more concerned with preventing “discrimination” against its students than partisan politics.


As the Washington Blade reported, Trump promised nearly a year ago on the campaign trail that he would rescind the Obama administration’s transgender directive but promised to still “protect all people.”


And as Trump criticized laws that would bar people from using the restroom which corresponds with their gender identity while on the campaign trail, multiple social conservatives criticized the then-Republican presidential candidate.


Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said he hoped Trump’s criticism of a controversial North Carolina bathroom bill would be an opinion that he would change.


“Hopefully, that will be another one of the positions that he’ll change,” Gohmert said.


And Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, also a Republican presidential candidate at the time, slammed Trump’s stance on bathroom laws.


“He said he thought men should be able to go into the girls’ bathroom if they want,” Cruz said at an April campaign stop. “Let me ask you, have we gone stark-raving mad? This is political correctness. This is nonsense.”


Trump told the Washington Post then that the government should “protect everybody” as he was ready to learn more about transgender issues as it is “certainly an issue that’s getting a lot of play and it’s an issue that [he is] studying very closely,” he said.


“It’s a very, very small portion of the population, but as I said, you have to protect everybody, including small portions of the population,” he said.


Trump also contended that the issue of transgender rights is a “people thing.”


“I think we have to help people,” Trump said. “I don’t view it as civil rights or not civil rights. I think it’s something where we have to help people — and hopefully the states will make the right decisions.”


Last month, the White House promised to continue to protect LGBT workers as it would keep an Obama-era executive order that proponents argued would protect the rights of those people in the workplace from discrimination.


“President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” the White House said in a statement then. “President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”


But even should Trump scale back on the transgender guidance greatly, Keisling told the Washington Blade that students would still be able to sue under Title IX protections if they feel as though they have been discriminated against based on their gender identity.


“It doesn’t take away trans kids’ rights,” Keisling said. “It’s Title IX that protects us, not Donald Trump or Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions agreeing with us on Title IX.”


While the text of Title IX does not on its face include a specific right to sue based on gender identity, the Department of Education has since clarified to ensure that gender discrimination is, indeed, prohibited under the law. However, it is unclear how a court would rule if asked to pass on whether such a right is contained within Title IX if, indeed, the Trump administration decides to roll back the Department of Education guidance on that issue.


President of the Human Rights Campaign Chad Griffin told the Washington Blade:


Transgender young people face tragically high rates of discrimination and bullying, and they need a government that will stand up for them — not attack them. It’s shocking that this kind of harm would even be a subject of debate for the president. We call on Trump to immediately and permanently affirm the Obama Administration’s guidance and protect transgender students.

‘God told me to’: Wal-Mart cashier helps pay for customer’s groceries

One cashier at Wal-Mart said it was her faith that prompted her to help pay for a struggling family’s groceries over the weekend.


Ashley Jordan was the first shopper Sharnique Dasant, a customer service manager at a Wal-Mart in Columbia, South Carolina, helped Saturday night, and she donated $100 toward the customer’s grocery bill, according to WLTX-TV.


Jordan and her husband Michael had two shopping carts full of groceries along with a crying 1-year-old baby. In a Facebook post Saturday, Jordan described that night’s Wal-Mart run as “another dreaded shopping trip trying to buy groceries for a family of 5.”


“We literally dread going to Walmart and buying groceries period because my husband’s whole check goes to food for our family,” she wrote, adding, “I will say that I’m not a fan of shopping at Walmart because of how rude some of the people can be.”


But this trip was different.


While most of the time, Jordan wrote, cashiers don’t interact with customers, Dasant was “very friendly” and engaging.


“[Dasant] told me my total and I was digging through my wallet trying to count all of my money out,” the stressed shopper recounted. “She gave me a smile and said, ‘You guys look like you need a blessing tonight.’ I just smiled back.”


In the moment, Jordan probably thought nothing of the exchange. But seconds later, Dasant offered up that “blessing” — something the Wal-Mart cashier said was inspired by a voice inside her.


“As we’re scanning and scanning, she got in front of me and it’s like I saw a different face on her,” Dasant told WLTX. “And I just had like a little man on my shoulder that was like, ‘Give her a $100 dollars, give her $100.’ And I was like, ‘give her $100?’ Like, I’m talking to myself like, ‘Give her $100!'”


The cashier walked around the register and told Jordan: “God told me to give you $100 dollars.”


At first, Jordan misunderstood, thinking Dasant was just giving them a coupon. “I then looked at the total, and I was at a loss for words,” Jordan wrote. “This sweet woman whom I never met in my life paid for half of my groceries!”



Jordan was so moved by the encounter, she asked if she could take a photo with the cashier and share it on social media. At press time, Jordan’s post had been liked nearly 30,000 times and shared more than 7,000 times.


Because of Dasant’s friendly gesture, Jordan wrote, she and her husband “both knew things were going to be OK because there truly are good people out there.”


“Thank you so much Sharnique Dasant,” she added, “you truly are a blessing and you will never realize how much you helped us out and how much faith you have put back into our heart.”

The National Park Service discovered graffiti on three monuments in Washington, D.C., over Presidents Day weekend, according to WRC-TV.


The outlet reported that small spaces at the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and the World War II Memorial were defaced.


Mike Litterst, a spokesperson for the National Park Service, said that they believe the three instances of graffiti are likely the work of one person, as they contain similar messages and the handwriting appears to be the same.



Litterst said the vandal used permanent or magic marker. He added that the park service is skilled at the difficult process of removing graffiti but must be cautious to not cause “further damage to the stone.”


He added that the park service is reviewing its security footage in the hopes of identifying the vandal.


WRC did not say what words the vandal wrote on the stone, but reports that they were not overtly political or hate-filled.

NBC News released two videos on their website showing American children delivering personal messages to President Donald Trump, and most of the children had less-than-stellar things to say about Trump only a month into his presidency.


“Dear Mr. President: Letters from the American Children,” opens with a young boy expressing his excitement to have a political outsider solve the disconnect between the Washington establishment and the American people. But the conversation quickly turns to much more mature subjects, such as racism, a border wall, and Trump’s immigration executive order.


“When you speak on things that make me feel uncomfortable or I disagree with, you make me feel small because I know I can’t change it,” one girl remarks.


“Most of my family is black. I’m afraid that you’re going to hurt some of us blacks,” a young boy slowly recites to the camera.


“Some of my friends are really scared about you building a wall, and the travel band [sic] because a lot of their families live in different places,” another young girl says, referencing Trump’s executive order temporarily halting visas from seven majority-Muslim countries. Enforcement of that order has been enjoined by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the Trump administration claims that they are drafting a new order that will meet the legal challenges that have been raised.


Another boy criticizes Trump for his handling of Syrian refugees, mentioning that Trump’s policy is “unfair” to them, while the child after him tells Trump there is no need to garner so much hate for other countries based on the actions of one single organization.


One boy says simply, “Not letting immigrants into America is really not nice, so please let them in.”


“Just because I’m Mexican doesn’t mean you can build a wall in my country,” an older girl states, insinuating Trump has racist intentions in building a border wall between the United States and Mexico.


The children’s comments clearly indicate they lack the depth of understanding needed to truly critique the president’s policies, and it is unlikely they came to these stated conclusions on their own. It should also be noted that NBC News also made no attempt to correct any misrepresentations about Trump made by the children in the video.


This clear example of selective editing will likely only serve to fan the flames in Trump’s war against the mainstream media for what he says is a bias against him. Last week, he blasted the media in a press conference for being unfair, and later said on Twitter that the media was an enemy of the American people, a statement he was largely criticized for making.

Security lapse at JFK airport leads to 11 passengers boarding flights without being screened

A security lapse at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport allowed 11 passengers to walk through a security checkpoint without being screened by TSA agents early Monday. But TSA officials say they are “confident” the unscreened individuals posed no threat.


According to the New York Post, 11 people walked through a TSA security line around 6 a.m. Monday in JFK’s Terminal 5 when TSA agents opened the screening lane without immediately assigning agents to man it.


Of the 11 people who made it through, three triggered the metal detector — but no one was around to stop them.


“The screening lane was unmanned, but passengers didn’t know, so they started going through it,” a law enforcement source told the Post.


Once other agents realized what had happened, they printed pictures of the individuals and searched for them in the terminal to no avail. Only after they failed to locate the individuals did a TSA supervisor inform the Port Authority Police Department of the major security breach — nearly two hours later.


But sending passenger screeners to locate an unscreened passenger in the terminal was also a breach of protocol, a law enforcement source told the New York Daily News.


“The TSA tried to mitigate the situation by sending their screeners through the terminal in violation of all the protocols,” the person said. “The protocol says law enforcement is immediately notified.”


PAPD authorities are to be informed immediately of a breach because they are specifically trained to handle the situation, the source added.


The three individuals who set off the metal detector alarm were eventually identified after they boarded their flight to San Fransisco. They were given additional screening once they arrived at their destination.


The other eight passengers, however, were never identified.


In a statement, the TSA said they are “reviewing” the incident.


“TSA works with a network of security layers both seen and unseen. We are confident this incident presents no threat to the aviation transportation system,” the statement read.


“Once our review is complete, TSA will discipline and retrain employees as appropriate,” the agency added.

Fox News host Sean Hannity took aim at the mainstream media on Monday during the opening monologue for his late night show, Hannity, and made it clear that he agrees with Donald Trump’s contention that the media is an enemy of the American people.


“The abusively biased press — they have now declared war on President Trump and by the way, in turn you the American people who put him in office,” Hannity said after showing a video montage of media members expressing disdain at President Donald Trump’s declaration that the media was “an enemy of the American people.”


“Now we’re seeing just how relevant WikiLeaks was. Remember they exposed the rampant, rampant collusion between the press and the Clinton campaign. They had a stake in this election, and of course they were one-sided, abusively so,” he continued before showing another montage of political commentators lamenting over Trump’s victory on election night.


Hannity called on the media to apologize to Trump for their past treatment of him. “So here’s where we are today. Has this abusively biased media changed? Have they learned anything? Have they apologized for their collusion and misreporting? Absolutely not. And worse, look at what they’re doing now. They’re ignoring President Trump’s accomplishments,” he said, launching into a list of the promises he said Trump has kept since taking office.


“It’s so clear, they are collectively  — the news media — at war with the president, because their little egos are bruised and they’ve been exposed,” Hannity declared. “They have proven they can never be trusted. They lie, they mislead, they distort, and they have an agenda- a left-wing radical agenda… In reality, they’re modern day propagandists.” Hannity then compared the American media to state-run propagandist media in other countries.


“This is exactly why the president calls them ‘fake news,’ because you cannot trust them any longer. That’s just a fact,” he concluded.

Indiana Jesus statue beheaded twice in two weeks

Members of a church in Indianapolis have found their Jesus statue decapitated for the second time in two weeks.


“It makes me sad that somebody would do something like that,” Brad Flaskamp, pastor of Cottage Avenue Pentecostal Fellowship, told WXIN-TV. “I was hoping it was just a random act to destroy it in the first place.”


The church has stood in the 800 block of the south side of Indianapolis for nearly a century, though the vandalized Jesus statue has only been in place for five years, according to the local news site. Church members just reattached the head on Saturday after the first vandalization, but by Sunday morning, the statue had been beheaded again.


This time, though, whoever vandalized the statue took the head with them.


“I can tell you that I don’t think it’s kids,” Flaskamp said. “It would have to be a kid that can wield a sledge hammer.”


The church administration has no idea who might be behind the crime, either. The church’s secretary, Sue Myers, said all she knows is it’s being done by someone who’s “got some really deep problems.” And her grandson, Tony, who is a member of the church, said it’s someone who “just has fun destroying other people’s things.”


The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police, according to WXIN, have opened an investigation into the ordeal, but because of the nature of the crime, the officers will likely need someone to come forward with information because they know so little about the crime.


“It is a difficult case to investigate,” Sgt. Kendale Adams said. “However, our detectives are very good about trying to connect the dots and get information from those in the community.”


At this point, the congregation just wants the statue repaired. In fact, Flaskamp said if the vandal returns the Jesus head and admits wrongdoing, he won’t even call the police.


“I’d say, ‘We love you, we’d love to have the statue head back and we’d love to have you in our church,'” he said. “We’d welcome them, we’d forgive them — that’s what it’s all about.”


And Flaskamp is trying to have a good sense of humor about it in the meantime. “Someone needs Jesus, that’s for sure,” he joked, adding, “And not just his head, that’s the truth.”

Bill Gates suggests taxing robots ‘at similar level’ as human workers

As the minimum wage rises in more states, many businesses are turning to replacing workers with robots, and that is impacting the government’s income tax…

As the minimum wage rises in more states, many businesses are turning to replacing workers with robots, and that is impacting the government’s income tax revenue.


Fast food chains like McDonald’s and Wendy’s announced or implemented plans recently to replace workers with self-service kiosks, or robots. CEK Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder, who withdrew his nomination as President Donald Trump’s labor secretary, has also expressed interest in deploying robots to combat the rising cost of wages. The decisions came as “Fight for 15” supporters advocate for a $15 federal minimum wage.


The federal minimum wage is currently $7.25, but it has gone up recently in a number of states. Washington State, California and Massachusetts are just a few of the states where the minimum wage is now more than $10 per hour. Washington, D.C., has the highest minimum wage in the country, at $11.50 per hour, according to Bankrate.


But now, Microsoft founder Bill Gates is proposing a tax on robots to make up for the decrease in income tax revenue resulting from lost jobs. During a recent interview with Quartz, Gates was asked what he thought of the idea of a “robot tax.” His answer was quite candid:


Certainly there will be taxes that relate to automation. Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory. That income is taxed and you get income tax, social security tax, all those things. If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.


The billionaire entrepreneur noted that the upside of the increased used of robots would be the “freeing up” of labor. In other words, workers who lose their jobs to robots would then be available to perform other types of work, such as assist the elderly, teach and help special needs children.


Gates proposed subsidizing these new jobs with a “robot tax,” which he said could be implemented in various ways.


“Some of it can come on the profits that are generated by the labor-saving efficiency there. Some of it can come directly in some type of robot tax. I don’t think the robot companies are going to be outraged that there might be a tax. It’s OK,” Gates said.



European Union lawmakers rejected last week a proposal to impose a “robot tax” in EU countries, according to Reuters.


The Germany-based International Federation of Robotics applauded the governing body’s decision, saying the action would have had a very negative impact on competitiveness and employment.”

MSNBC reporter Katy Tur is being criticized for her response when a congressman used the example of Obama’s “hot mic” moment in 2012 in a discussion about President Trump’s admiration for Russian president Putin. The exchange was made during her interview with Rep. Rooney (R-Fl.) on MSNBC Monday.


“You seem to have a lot of confidence, though,” Tur challenged Rooney, “that [Trump] is going to treat Russia in as tough a way as his predecessors did.”


“I do,” Rooney responded, “I think he’ll treat Russia more firmly than Obama.”


“I’m just wondering where that confidence comes from,” Tur interrupted.


“Well, he’s got a lot of conservative people in the government,” Rooney offered, “and you know he’s a business guy so he might have spoken a little less nuanced than very trained generals and state department leaders might, but I think he knows that, as he said all through the campaign, we’re gonna keep America strong. We’re gonna keep America safe, both at home and abroad. And you can’t do that without dealing with Russia.”


Tur seemed not to be satisfied with the response as she continued to press Rooney, citing a list of Trump administration officials accused of being sympathetic to Russia and Putin.


“He also chose a number of people that were,” Tur pointedly asked, “at least, in his administration, until last week, who were friendly with Russia – General Mike Flynn being one of them.


His former campaign CEO was Paul Manafort, who’s got ties to Russia, his secretary of state was given the medal of friendship by Russia. So you say there’s a lot of conservatives who are going to push back on Russia, but I see a lot of folks within Donald Trump’s administration who have a friendlier view of Russia than maybe past administrations did.


“Well, I think it was Obama who leaned over to Putin and said, ‘I’ll have a little more flexibility to give you what you want after the re-election,'” Rooney replied.


“I’m sorry I don’t know what you’re referring to, Congressman,” Tur admitted.


“Remember when he leaned over,” Rooney explained, “at a panel discussion or a meeting and he said, ‘I’ll have more flexibility after the election’ nobody ever pushed the president on what he meant by that, but I can only assume that for a thug like Putin, that it would embolden him.”


Here Tur abruptly ended the conversation without responding to his explanation of the “hot mic” event.




Tur took to Twitter later and explained that she was, indeed, ignorant of the event the congressman was referring to.






The event Rooney referred to was spread widely by conservatives to harm Obama’s chances in the 2012 election. The “hot mic” moment caught him saying to then-Russian president Medvedev (not Putin, as Rooney said) that he would have more flexibility after the election, as it was his last. Medvedev had responded that he would transmit the information to “Vladimir.”


Katy Tur had been one of Trump’s targets repeatedly during the presidential campaign of 2016, as he regularly mentioned her as an example of a biased reporter. “Fake news” has been a contentious issue in the presidential election season as Trump accuses the mainstream media of being fake, while Democrats blame the proliferation of “fake news” for Hillary’s historic defeat.

Iran tells U.S. chess champion to wear a hijab – here’s how she responds

Nazi Paikidze is the reigning U.S. chess champion, but when the Iranian government told her she had to wear a hijab, the Muslim head veil, and restrict contact with men in order to compete in the world competition hosted by Iran this year, she refused. The “morality laws” were supported by FIDE, the international organization that coordinates the world chess championship event.


“By participating, I would be forced to submit to forms of oppression designed specifically for women,” Paikidze told Marie Clare magazine. “It sets the wrong example, particularly for young girls interested in chess.”


Paikidze further explained her decision

in September.


This is a post for those who don’t understand why I am boycotting FIDE’s decision. I think it’s unacceptable to host a WOMEN’S World Championship in a place where women do not have basic fundamental rights and are treated as second-class citizens. For those saying that I don’t know anything about Iran: I have received the most support and gratitude from the people of Iran, who are facing this situation every day.


Paikidze also retweeted this tweet noting the irony of members of the Swedish team, a country known for its feminist advances, giving in to the gender-specific oppression imposed by Iran by wearing the hijab.

“I will NOT wear a hijab and support women’s oppression.” She told the founder of a group organizing against Iran’s hijab laws. “Even if it means missing one of the most important competitions of my career.”


When an Iranian chess player criticized her boycott saying that the tournament were important for women in Iran and presented them with an opportunity for show their strength, Paikidze appeared to respond

to the charge.


A message to the people of Iran: I am not anti-Islam or any other religion. I stand for freedom of religion and choice. I’m protesting FIDE’s decision not because of Iran’s religion or people, but for the government’s laws that are restricting my rights as a woman.


The world chess championship began February 10th and will continue until March 5th. For boycotting the event, Paikidze forfeits the opportunity to win over $100,000 in award money.


She posted this tweet during while the competition continued without her:
