Christopher Reeve to Make Full or Nearly-Full Recovery

 

Actor Christopher Reeve NEW PREDICTION: 12/6/01 -- Well, here is something that is on a far happier note. Far be it from me to raise false hopes, but I do believe there is a good chance that actor Christopher Reeve will make a full recovery or a nearly-full recovery from the paralysis he has been fighting for so many years since the tragic horsing accident that damaged his upper spinal cord. It would be nice to see a more pleasant prediction come true for a change. I believe this could occur in May 2002. Perhaps a new procedure will be discovered that will accelerate his progress or, simply, it may be the time for his own efforts to finally succeed.

 

Paralyzed Christopher Reeve makes slight gains

September 10, 2002 Posted: 2:07 PM EDT (1807 GMT)

Actor Christopher ReeveST. LOUIS, Missouri (CNN) -- Actor Christopher Reeve -- paralyzed since 1995 -- is experiencing slight movement in his fingers and toes, his doctor told CNN on Tuesday. "To be able to feel just the lightest touch," he said, "is really a gift." He can feel hugs from his wife and children, he told People magazine in the issue that will be available on newsstands Friday.

Dr. John McDonald, a leader in the field of spinal cord regeneration, said he couldn't predict whether his patient will walk again, but told People: "The fact that he's having some recovery could make that a possibility."

"The belief is that most recovery occurs in the first six months, and that if it's not complete in two years, it's pretty much over. ... And typically, you know, someone [who] doesn't have any recovery early, won't have any recovery late," McDonald said. Reeve's improvement "really changes the playing field in terms of what's possible."

Reeve, who will turn 50 on September 25 and is best known for playing Superman in the 1978 movie and sequels, was paralyzed from the neck down in a 1995 riding accident. Reeve fell from a horse during an equestrian event, and broke two bones in his neck. He once vowed to walk before his 50th birthday.

Christopher Reeve's improvement called 'unprecedented'

September 13, 2002

(AP) -- Actor Christopher Reeve's surprising ability to move and feel again after years of paralysis is likely to encourage doctors to try to reverse other seemingly hopeless spinal injuries.

The "Superman" star, paralyzed in a riding accident in 1995, regained sensation and modest movement after joining a rigorous physical therapy program at Washington University in St. Louis three years ago.

The result, doctors say, is the first documented case of partial reversal after years of paralysis. Typically, doctors tell paralyzed patients that most improvement occurs in the first six months with no hope of recovery beyond two years.

"The truth is, we don't know," said Dr. Kevin O'Connor, head of spinal cord injury recovery at Boston's Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. "Given this report, it's really unfair to patients to say there is a time limit."

Still, doctors do not know whether similar programs will help other patients, whether Reeve will continue to improve or even whether the exercise program was responsible for his change.

Neuroscientist Naomi Kleitman, head of spinal cord injury research at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, said Reeve made "an unprecedented amount of recovery" and added, "its significance is that people will begin to emphasize the importance of rehabilitation and look at it in more ordinary people with these injuries."

The first clear sign of change occurred one early November day almost two years ago, when Reeve twitched his left index finger. By then, he had been immobile from the neck down for more than five years, unable to feel or move anything. But the movement was the start of a slow rebirth of sensation and control that he says has changed his life for the better.

Reeve, who turns 50 on September 25, still must use a wheelchair. All but one hour a day, he uses a ventilator to breathe. But he can feel human touch, experience pain and move his fingers, wrists and legs.

"His was the worst-case scenario," said Dr. John W. McDonald, who oversaw his treatment. "Nobody in the world would have predicted he could recover."

Reeve was thrown from a horse seven years ago and landed on his helmet, breaking his neck and damaging the thumb-size bundle of nerves that carries messages between the brain and the rest of the body. At least three-quarters of the nerve fibers were severed, and what remained did not work. Over the years, his muscles withered, his bones thinned, and he suffered repeated bouts of infection and life-threatening complications.

After years of his own exercise efforts, the actor began a rigorous approach called activity-based recovery, which involves repeated electrical stimulation of the muscles. The idea is that constant motion could re-educate the remaining nerves in the spine to carry signals and perhaps even sprout new branches to connect to healthy fibers above and below the injury.

For an hour three times a week at home, Reeve sat on an exercise bicycle while electrical stimulation made his legs pump the pedals. Similar stimulation was done to other muscle groups. Next he began weekly aquatherapy, working his muscles in a pool for two hours at a time. McDonald described the results in a report in the September issue of the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine, including an interview he did with Reeve during the summer.

Now, Reeve can tell hot from cold. He can feel about two-thirds of the normal sensation of being touched and half of the usual intensity of pinpricks. This ability to feel lets him know when he should shift his weight, so he can sit in a wheelchair up to 16 hours a day without getting pressure sores.

In the water, he can make flying motions with his arms and walk. However, he still requires around-the-clock nursing care, and out of the pool, he cannot raise his arms or walk without being held up.

Reeve told McDonald that knowing he can breathe on his own has relieved his terror of a ventilator failure, and life with his family is much more normal.

"They know I am healthier, stronger, and that on any day, I might have a surprising recovery," he said. For instance, after a recent session in the pool, "my ability to push off from the wall against resistance was about twice as strong as it was weeks earlier."

Gaining sensation has also been important. "It makes a huge difference if someone touches you on the hand, and you can feel it," he said. "You make a much more meaningful connection."

Doctors say they also cannot be sure, from a single case, whether repetitive movements actually do revive the wiring of the spine to carry lost messages. But several said they believe Reeve's unusual course of physical therapy played a role in his recovery.

"I can't help but think it had something do with it," said Dr. John Jane, who treated Reeve at the University of Virginia soon after the accident. "People often begin to recover right away. The fact is, he did not. It's the late recovery that is so absolutely unique."

Implant helps Christopher Reeve breathe - November 14, 2003.
Operation enables Reeve to breath without respirator - March 13, 2003.

 

COMMENT (9/10/02): This prediction is PARTIALLY FULFILLED although still has some way to go.

 

POSTSCRIPT (3/6/05): Sadly, Death intervened with a bedsore septicemic infection on October 10, 2004. We'll never know if Christopher Reeve would have ever walked again ... or regained full control of his body. The indications were that he would have in time.

Restoration of the French Monarchy or
Re-Election of Jacques Chirac

 

French President Jacques Chirac Nostradamus frequently mentions a French ruler he names "Chiren" who will first be made King of France and later Emperor of Europe during the first decade of the 21st Century. In Nostradamus and the Final Age I concluded that "Chiren" may be an anagram for "Chirac": President Jacques Chirac of France. There is one very prominent base 7 vector for either the coronation of Chirac as monarch of France or his re-election as president: May 2002. If it should prove to be the latter, he will not be made king and emperor until as late as 2006.

 

Chirac re-elected in landslide against Le Pen

Jacques Chirac waves to supporters after landslide victoryMay 5, 2002 Posted: 4:43 PM EDT (2043 GMT) -- PARIS, France (CNN) -- President Jacques Chirac has been re-elected in a landslide victory over extreme-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, after a dramatic presidential race that shook France and much of Europe. In projections as the polls closed on Sunday by leading pollsters Sofres, Ipsos and CSA, Chirac received 82.1 percent of the vote, with Le Pen getting 17.9 percent. Chirac's massive victory was helped by a bigger turnout than for the April 21 first round, when 28 percent of voters stayed at home. Turnout on Sunday was estimated at about 80 percent, with 20 percent abstaining. "We have gone through a time of serious anxiety for the country," Chirac said in his victory speech. "But tonight, France has reaffirmed its attachment to values of the Republic." He promised to immediately address the issue of crime, which had emerged a top voter concern. Le Pen, from his headquarters near Paris, called the result "a stinging defeat for hope in France."

Chirac's supporters were delighted at the huge margin, but the result was still likely to leave a legacy for French politics. Chirac has promised to immediately begin implementing a law-and-order agenda, responding to voters concern about rising crime. CNN's European Political Correspondent Robin Oakley said that the signs were President Chirac had alreadyChirac supporters celebrate in Strasbourg started to reinvent himself -- portraying himself an a highly inclusive politician taking up a position in the centre. "But one thing he didn't address, having raised in his speech the suggestion that politics in France had to change, he didn't have anything to suggest how the political system should change," says Oakley. "He did not say how people are going to change the technocrats who seem to be running French politics, who have alienated the people and who have gained Le Pen his temporary success." Chirac's Socialist prime minister, Lionel Jospin, whom Le Pen unexpectedly edged out in the first round, has said he will leave his job immediately after the election so the government's resignation will be on the table on Monday ... Chirac had called on voters of all political persuasion to unite behind him against the extremism of Le Pen. Certainly for some in France the election, divisive as it was, was a unifying force as well. Street protests against Le Pen drew people hundreds of thousands from across the political spectrum, of all ages and strata of society, to march in the same cause of defeating extremism. The nationalist Le Pen, who wants to withdraw France from the European Union and end immigration, had labelled Chirac a crook after he became embroiled in a corruption probe. Jospin allies on the left urged people to vote for Chirac, even if they found it distasteful, in order to stop Le Pen, whom they denounced as a dangerous extremist. Chirac, who refused a televised debate with Le Pen, made the same pitch ... PREDICTION FULFILLED!

 

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The re-election of Jacques Chirac as President of France is more than a mere "hit" on this prediction page. It is also a critical and necessary event that I predicted in my book, Nostradamus and the Final Age. There can no longer be any doubt that Chirac is the "Chiren" of prophecy. This guarantees that my book will remain relevant until the next period of testing: 2009-2016, probably 2012. If I am correct about the successor of Chirac during that period, my book will likely remain relevant for more than 200 years.

Amato calls for strong president to lead EU -- wants to see a long-term presidency based on the French model -- first long-term president should be voted into power in 2004

July 7 2002 21:56 -- (FT.com) - One of the most senior figures in Europe's debate on its future has added his voice to calls for a powerful president to give strategic direction to the European Union. Giuliano Amato, vice-chairman of the EU's constitutional convention, is at the same time calling for an important role for the European Commission, suggesting that when government ministers are not dealing with legislation, their meetings should be chaired by a commissioner.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Mr Amato said the future roles of national governments and the Commission could be analogous with, respectively, those of the French president and prime minister. In France, the president is responsible for foreign affairs and defence, while the prime minister takes on the day-to-day responsibility of governing. Such a vision differs from ideas floated by France, the UK, and Spain, which would probably give member states greater weight but which resemble them in insisting on the need to change the current system of rotating six-month EU presidencies.

Mr Amato, a former Italian prime minister, called the status quo "a crazy system, totally inefficient". He argued that the EU needed a president "who remains long enough not to change the priorities every six months". He added that small countries should accept reform, particularly because a president, perhaps serving a renewable term of 2-1/2 years, would not necessarily be a politician from a large country. "The small countries should really rethink their initial objections," he said. "Whenever there is an election it is much easier to find an agreement on somebody from a smaller country." He added that the purpose of reform was not to create a "monocrat of Europe".

The convention is scheduled to meet early next year in a bid to come up with a EU balance of power that could endure for some 30 years. Valéry Giscard D'Estaing, convention chairman, hopes to reach a consensus that will be accepted by governments when they renegotiate the EU treaty in 2004.

The role of the convention's top officials, among whom Mr Amato features as the keenest constitutionalist, is particularly important in guiding the debate, as the 105 convention members are not scheduled to take a single vote. Instead, documents are drawn up by the convention's secretariat to reflect the tenor of debates, in association with working groups of convention members. Presenting his scheme for the mechanism of the EU, Mr Amato said he would like most of the legislative work of EU ministers to be compressed into a single gathering, while European commissioners would preside over less formal meetings to co-ordinate policy.

 

COMMENT (7/9/02): The way is now being paved for the prophet Daniel's "first king" of "Grecia," also identified by him as "the great horn." He will win the war humanity will remember as "World War III" and rule as the first emperor of an united Europe. This is the same "great monarch" European and Catholic prophets have been anticipating since the time of Merlin. In nearly all cases he is French, although a small percentage say he will be German. Nostradamus believed he will be French and named him "Chiren" in anagram. I believe he will be French President Jacques Chirac -- the same man I have accurately predicted would win the presidency in 1995 and again in 2002.

One good thing here: if the first "emperor" does not come to power until 2004, it may well mean that World War III -- or at least the Russian/Iranian-led invasion of Europe part of World War III -- will not take place until at least thaat year or in 2005 or 2006. Of course, it is still possible that Chiren will rise to power in the EU through some other means, such as through an emergency powers act. In that case, it could happen much sooner if needs be.

 

The King of Europe Speaks Out.Chirac, 'the king of Europe'

It is becoming as I predicted and as Nostradamus prophesied. French President Jacques Chirac is without doubt "le grand Chiren" -- he has taken on the regal mantle of "the voice of Europe," soon to be "king of Europe." He now speaks for the entire EU. His is the "greater voice" Nostradamus prophesies will be substituted for the doomed Nato alliance. He shall become Emperor of Europe, Leader of the EU and all of Europe. Hear the words of "le grand monarque" -- "le grand Chiren selin!"

A Pope from Ancient France Elected?

 

Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger (recent photo)If Nostradamus can be believed, May 2002 may also herald the election of the first French pope ever to reign over the Roman Catholic Church. Nostradamus mentions him in Quatrain 5.49:

Not of Spain but of ancient France
Will he be elected for the trembling ship,
To the enemy will be made an assurance
Who in his reign will cause a cruel pestilence.

This candidate from France who is elected pope may be the controversial cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger. It is difficult to be certain whether he will succeed John Paul II or another pope who may rule briefly after John Paul's death. The prophet also calls this man "the Cardinal of France" in Quatrain 8.4. If he is not elected in May 2002, there are base 7 indications that he will instead come to power in October 2004.

Earthquake Destroys Boston or Buffalo

 

Boston-Buffalo Earthquake

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/20/99 -- The universal cataclysm predicted by Edgar Cayce and the Book of Revelation may or may not come in 2001. Even if I am correct and a worldwide seismic chain-reaction does occur in March/April 2001, it will not mean an end to earthquakes when it is all over. Indeed, Nostradamus speaks of tremblings of the earth continuing on well into the next millennium through war and peace.

A US east coast faultline running from Boston, Massachusetts to Buffalo, New York will become extremely active in 2001, culminating in a major earthquake for one of the two cities in May 2002 according to my base 7 system. However, one cannot rule out the possibility that either or both cities will be destroyed by nuclear missiles or terrorist devices. Such will be the dangerous state of affairs in a world at war.

 

Northeast of U.S. quivers in rare quake - "the earthquake was felt from Buffalo, New York to Boston, Massachusetts"

Quake damage in Plattsburgh, NYApril 20, 2002 Posted: 1:58 PM EDT (1758 GMT) -- PLATTSBURGH, New York (CNN) -- An unusually strong earthquake was felt across the Northeast United States and parts of Canada early Saturday morning, rattling residents and buckling roads in the region of the epicenter. No injuries or deaths have been reported. The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the quake, setting the preliminary magnitude at 5.1 -- capable of causing considerable damage. It was centered 15 miles southwest of Plattsburgh, New York. According to the USGS, the quake happened at 6:50 a.m. The Canadian Geological Survey reported an earthquake of magnitude 5.5. Frank Revetta, the director of the Northern New York Seismology Center at Potsdam, said the Canadian figure may prove to be more accurate. Jim King, director of Clinton County Emergency Services, told CNN two aftershocks have been felt -- one about 15 minutes after the initial earthquake, and a second shortly before 9 a.m. "We're assessing the damage that's been called in," said King. "We have a couple of roads that have failed." He said State Route 9 was closed to traffic because of damage from the quake.

New York Department of Transportation workers began inspecting bridges for possible damage, and a lot of people had called in reports of damage ranging from shattered glass to cracked ceilings and chimneys. King said the county had declared an emergency. Plattsburgh reported no significant damage or injuries. George Facteau, a resident of Plattsburgh, said statues and pictures in his apartment started to fall down, then his cat jumped up and ran out of the room. "Actually at first it was kind of scary," Facteau said. "I wasn't quite sure what was going on." Facteau said he lives close to several banks and a federal building. "That was my first concern, actually."

The USGS said in an earthquake bulletin that "the earthquake was felt from Buffalo, New York to Boston, Massachusetts and Baltimore, Maryland." Police across the region say they received calls of concern about tremors from New York, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Vermont. There were similar calls in Ontario. In Connecticut, an unidentified man in Enfield said he and a friend were fishing Saturday morning when they heard a sound "kind of like when big trucks drive by. The ground shook and my buddy just said, 'Did you feel that?' We looked at each other and didn't think nothing of it." Police in New London, New Hampshire, say they have received a few dozen calls about tremors. A police dispatcher said residents are reporting that the earth shook for 15 to 20 seconds. A dispatcher said the apparent tremors, however, weren't very intense. One resident reported that "everything was shaking." Sgt. Russell See of the New Haven, Connecticut, police said the department had received calls from people who had felt the tremor or tremors and were concerned. One caller said the house shook. See said police had confirmed the information with other police departments across the state, but that they had no reports of damage or injuries. CNN also received an e-mail from a Syracuse, New York, resident, who reported being awakened by what appeared to be a quake ...

 

COMMENT (4/20/02): The location and timing are close enough for me to consider this event a FULFILLMENT, since the quake was felt from Buffalo to Boston along the fault line that bridges them, just as I specified. Will a worse quake plague the region in the days or weeks immediately ahead? It is quite possible, although quakes of this magnitude are rare enough (the last was in the 1700s I believe). Best to be on guard for a larger one.

Cataclysmic Temblor Rocks Russia or Former USSR

 

Ruined city in Russia or Transcaucasus

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/6/01 -- I don't know what this will be -- an earthquake or an explosion of nuclear proportions. It will strike suddenly in Russia or near the Black and Caspian Seas (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, etc). There may be many thousands of casualties. This will happen either in May/June 2002 or November/December 2002. One cannot rule out the possibility that both areas will be struck -- one in the spring vector mentioned and the other in autumn.

 

Deadly Earthquake Strikes Georgia

VOA News -- 25 Apr 2002 22:57 UTC -- A powerful earthquake in Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, has killed three people and destroyed a number of buildings. Preliminary reports say the quake measured between six and seven on the Richter scale. Georgian authorities call this the country's strongest quake in at least 30 years.The earthquake struck late Thursday evening just as many Tbilisi residents were getting ready for bed. Hundreds of people poured into the streets, fearing their homes would collapse. One Tbilsi resident told VOA that many buildings in the city's old section have been heavily damaged and that electricity and telephone service were cut for several hours.

Georgian Quake Kills Three in Tbilisi

Buildings in Tbilisi have collapsedApril 25, 2002 05:04 PM ET -- TBILISI (Reuters) - Three people died in Tbilisi Thursday in Georgia's strongest earthquake in 40 years. The quake, which also sent roofs of homes in the old town tumbling into the streets, measured six on the Richter scale. A food store assistant, her 18-year-old son and a young woman shopper died together when the roof of a 1970s-style Soviet apartment block crashed down on them as they were leaving the ground-floor shop, one witness said.

"This is a great misfortune," Tbilisi mayor Vano Zodelava told Reuters as he inspected the damage in a suburb some five km (three miles) from the city center. Blood and body parts were visible among the wreckage. "Three people are dead," said Petre Mamradze, chief of the administration of Eduard Shevardnadze, the Georgian President who ordered a special center set up to assess the damage and aid victims' families.

Many city residents fled their homes into the streets after the earthquake, which hit at around 10:40 p.m. (1:40 p.m. EDT), but returned inside as hours passed without signs of aftershocks. Tamaz Chelidze of Georgia's Center for Geophysics said the epicenter was close to the capital and that the quake was the strongest in the ex-Soviet republic since the late 1960s.

Tbilisi was also hit by a quake on April 11, but no injuries were reported. Russian President Vladimir Putin had called Shevardnadze and expressed his readiness to help Georgia, Mamradze said.

 

COMMENT (4/26/02): Considering that this was such a powerful and destructive quake (between mag 6.0 and 7.0), it is strange I am unable to find any photos showing the wreckage and casualties. This quake has struck in one of the two locations in the former USSR where I said it would -- I mentioned both the Black Sea and Georgia by name. It has occurred a month ahead of schedule (April instead of May), like the New York quake did. Although this prediction is technically FULFILLED, I remain wary. Something bigger and badder could still happen in this region or in Russia in May or June or late in the year around November. Always best to remain on guard.

 

Asteroid 'hit northern Russia'

Ananova - 4 October 2002 18:25

Artist's rendition of asteroid hitting earth's atmosphereA large meteorite is thought to have smashed into a forest in a remote area of Russia.

Residents in the town of Bodaibo, in the Irkutsk region of Siberia, saw a large luminous body fall from the sky. They say the impact caused the ground to shake and made a sound like thunder.

Flashes of bright light could be seen above the impact site, which was a long way from any settlements according to the Russian newspaper Pravda. "Locals felt a strong shock, which could be comparable to an earthquake," said the report. "In addition to that, the people also heard a thunder-like sound."

Asteroid expert Dr Benny Peiser, from Liverpool John Moore's University, said: "If the eyewitness accounts are confirmed, this fact of an earth tremor together with thunder-like explosive sounds would indicate a rather significant impact event."

He said the incident occurred on the same day as the US House of Representatives debated the need to search for smaller asteroids and the danger of mistaking impacts for nuclear attacks.

At least 30 times a year, asteroids smash into the Earth's atmosphere and explode with the force of a nuclear bomb.

These smaller asteroids, between 200 and 500 metres wide, could potentially demolish a city with a direct hit or cause tsunamis - giant waves - capable of wiping out entire coastal areas if they land in the ocean.

Astronomers estimate there could be between 900 and 1,300 large asteroids measuring one kilometre or more in our part of the solar system, while the number of smaller bodies could amount to 50,000.

Meteorite crash site located in Siberia

Friday, June 20, 2003 Posted: 12:14 PM EDT (1614 GMT) - MOSCOW (AP) -- A group of scientists say they have found the spot in Siberia where a giant meteorite came crashing to Earth last year. The researchers from the Kosmopoisk, or Space Search, research group told Rossiya state television Thursday that they believe a burned-out tract of taiga about 1,100 kilometers (700 miles) north of the city of Irkutsk is the spot where one or more meteorites fell on September 25.

Vadim Chernobrov, Kosmopoisk's coordinator, said the meteorite crash was "comparable to the force of a medium atomic bomb." "In other words, this is a colossal historic event," he told Rossiya. "I'm simply happy that we were the first at the epicenter." Chernobrov said that after examining the site, the research team believes two meteorites actually fell, not just one, as previously thought.

 

COMMENT (10/6/02): Well, I did say that an unknown something would cause "an explosion of nuclear proportions" in Russia. I'd say the strong earth tremor, brilliant flash, and the sound of a thunderous explosion caused by this small asteroid more than qualifies for a FULFILLMENT of this prediction. This incident fits the second vector given, November/December 2002, one month premature. One report compared it to the Tunguska Event of 1908, but no one will really know just how bad it was until the site of impact is investigated.

 

COMMENT (6/7/03): The June 20 report above is a followup and definitely indicates, without question, the major seismic impact the meteor had in Siberia. Like the Tanguska Event, the earthshock was similar to that created by "a medium atomic bomb" (Russian scientist's own words). Again, what did I say? My exact words were: "I don't know what this will be -- an earthquake or an explosion of nuclear proportions." I sensed the one event would be that unusual -- like a nuclear explosion. My predictions for Russia and the former USSR were therefore fulfilled to the very letter. Sceptics, try to argue your way out of this one! And please note that for timing, I was only off in both events by one lousy month. If that's your only argument, it is weak tea!

Violence Threatens the Lives of Madonna and
Pamela Anderson

 

Madonna Portrait I am nearly 100% certain that entertainer Madonna is the identity of the endangered female celebrity whose face I kept hidden for nearly a year on this web site. Despite the potentially gruesome nature of the danger posed to her, I could no longer keep what I suspect may happen in 2002 a secret. Even though this prediction concerns events two years and three months into the future, I feel the prediction must appear on this site now. I can already begin to sense the trends that may contribute to the peril she will find herself in. A new web page devoted to this prediction can now be accessed here or from the main menu on the home page. Judging from the dwindling space remaining, I will probably have to create a second page for this very detailed prophetic analysis. The presentation, despite its sensational content, is presented in the hope that it will avert a ghastly tragedy. Both base 7 numerology and Nostradamus concur: someone named "Modena" will die violently in June/July or October/November 2002.
UPDATE (3/26/01): Whilst the majority of the above presentation is spent making the case that Madonna is in great personal danger, in all fairness, a section of the page has also been set aside (on March 20, 2001) to warn of a possible danger to one other woman, actress and sex symbol Pamela Anderson, who is without a doubt a modern dead ringer for Jayne Mansfield. This development opens the very real possibility that both Madonna and Pamela Lee are in danger of death in 2002 -- Anderson from a horrible automobile accident and Madonna from a mysterious murder. Thus, it is quite possible the June/July 2002 vector may be applied to Pamela Anderson and the October/November 2002 vector to Madonna. Pamela Anderson

On November 11, 2001, I experienced a lucid dream vision of what appears to be the details of Madonna's death. If this was for real, we may now know the nature of the danger facing her in 2002. To see what I have seen, open a Dream Window. Shadowdncer also shares an unnerving posthumous vision from July 16 of Madonna's tragic death in the above dream window.

 

Pamela Anderson announces she has contracted hepatitis C

by Marcus Errico
E! Online

Mar 20, 2002

Pamela Anderson - 'five to ten years left'In a surprise announcement Wednesday, Pamela Anderson said she was suffering from hepatitis C, and she blames the infection on ex-husband Tommy Lee. Anderson says she contracted the disease, which can cause life-threatening liver damage, after sharing a tattoo needle with the former Mötley Crüe drummer. "It is true I have hepatitis C and have undergone outpatient treatment at UCLA Medical Center," she said in a statement. "I contracted hepatitis C while sharing a tattoo needle with my ex-husband Tommy Lee."

In happier times, the couple famously celebrated their union in body art, including, in lieu of wedding bands, "ring" tattoos of each other's name. (After their acrimonious split two years ago, Pamela had hers changed to "Mommy.") Anderson also has a barbed wire tattoo (she starred in the film Barb Wire) on her left bicep.

Anderson, the former Playboy and Baywatch pinup who currently stars on the syndicated series V.I.P., says she didn't know about Lee's infection until she was diagnosed by a doctor. "A mutual doctor confirmed this at the time. Tommy has the disease and never disclosed it to me during our marriage," she said. Anderson, 34, and Lee, 39, are still battling over custody of their two young sons. The two currently share custody, but Anderson is attempting to gain sole custody.

The actress, who now dates Kid Rock, says her announcement was prompted by Lee, who allegedly leaked the information to the Star supermarket tabloid. "In a pathetic attempt to discredit me [in the custody fight], he has decided to go public with this very private information." Lee's camp initially denied the allegations outright. Entertainment Tonight quoted an unidentified spokesperson as saying, "Tommy has never had hepatitis C or any sexually transmitted diseases. Pam's ridiculous accusations are attempts to try to change the current joint custody arrangement for their children."

However, in a written statement released late Wednesday, the rocker's publicist, Beth Katz, did not directly address the hepatitis allegations. Instead the statement only accused Anderson of playing dirty to get the kids. "Her actions today are a clear attack on Tommy and hopefully she will realize that she is only doing more harm to her children and herself by trying to use the media as a tool to hurt Tommy and their two boys," said Katz.

Meanwhile, in an interview airing Thursday morning on Los Angeles' KTLA television station, Kid Rock says he did not know of Anderson's condition until she released her statement to the press. "I was with her last night and she didn't really release that statement to me or say anything about it. She's fine," he said.

Hepatitis C affects about 3.9 million Americans. It is spread by blood-to-blood contact, usually by sharing intravenous needles or through unprotected sex. Although much less common, hepatitis C can, as apparently is the case with Anderson, be spread through dirty piercing and tattooing tools. The disease causes swelling in the liver, which keeps the organ from performing its basic function of cleansing the blood, and can lead to cirrhosis, liver cancer and liver failure. Between 8,000 and 10,000 people in America die each year due to complications from hepatitis C.

Pamela Anderson says she's got less than ten years to live

People News
20 October 2003

Pamela Anderson has said that she only has up to a decade to live as she is battling a deadly liver disease, Hepatitis C. The Baywatch actress and Playboy pin-up revealed all on US radio when talking to shock jock Howard Stern. She said, 'I've got a good five to 10 years left.' In the past Anderson has played down the disease, which she believes she got from a tattoo needle she shared with ex hubbie Tommy Lee - a claim he refutes. Whilst Hepatitis C can be a serious infection, the majority of people who contract it carry it for the rest of their lives. Long term, some develop cirrhosis of the liver and liver failure a category Pammy falls into. She has undergone treatment and adopted a new healthy living regime to try to combat the illness and despite her depressing claim on the Stern's show she also said in true Hollywood schizophrenic fashion, 'I feel good. Pretty good' and then added dramatically, 'but it is deadly.'

Pamela who will soon be seen in the film Scary Movie 3, wants to survive long enough to see her sons, Brandon, seven, and Dylan, five, reach 21. She has said, 'I've got to make sure I'm around.' Particularly given that she does not want them brought up by Lee.

Four men in Ford Escort try to break through Madonna's high-tech home security system

Madonna is injured half way through music video shoot

Bond 20 - 25-08-02

Madonna was injured during a fencing scene during the filming of the "Die Another Day" music video.

Filming took place on Thursday 22nd August 2002 and Friday 23rd before being delayed due to a small injury in a "fight" sequence. She was reportedly very upset that shooting had to be stalled due to her accident. Filming is due to continue on Monday 26th and wrap on Tuesday 27th.

Unlike the previous Brosnan Bond films, the "Die Another Day" music video will not feature any scenes from the film. It is rumoured that a few bars from the new title track will be part of the full trailer due for release on September 6th 2002.

 

Enter Madonna-Pamela Prophecy for more details.

 

NOTES: Technically, there is a case to be made that some degree of closeness occurred for both Pamela Anderson and Madonna. Pamela Anderson announced she had Hepatitis C. Also, four major car crashes occurred killing three major celebrities, two female (Linda Lovelace and TLC's Lisa Lopes), around the time of the June 2002 crash vector, when there had been no car crashes of importance for several years beforehand or any since. Several major points discussed, anticipated, or actually predicted in the presentation happened in Madonna's life (such as her first theatre performance in 13 years, changing her hair colour back to blonde in 2001-2002 and now yet again in 2003 after a brief return to black and red, "acting out" a deadly car crash in a music video (where it appears she has committed suicide) and in a BMW commercial (in what some critics agree was a lampoon of Diana's car crash). Other events also occurred which must be presented and dicussed in a future analysis.

At the moment I still consider this prediction, in as far as the year 2002 is concerned, as active until the end of 2003.

I am not altogether convinced that Madonna is safely out of the woods and will not be until after this year, 2004, and 2005 have ended. The "Modena" quatrain keeps her in some degree of danger and her chameleon-like characteristics make it possible for her to fall victim to other scenarios besides the ones discussed in this presentation, such as a Marilyn Monroe/Princess Diana scenario (obviously) in August 2004 or a Sylvia Plath, Janis Joplin, or Elvis Presley scenario in February, August, or October 2005. And, unfortunately, there are other influences in both 2004 and 2005 besides these.

ADDITIONAL NOTES: This latest disclosure by Pamela Anderson represents an ecalation or worsening of her condition. Clearly the disastrous nature of her illness was understated last year after her initial disclosure of having the disease and the full impact of my prediction on the Madonna-Pamela Prophecy page was not appreciated for that reason. This, in turn, raises the stakes and raises the rating below from a 0.25 for Pamela Anderson to a 0.50, bringing the collective rating from a 0.50 to a 0.75.

Major Earthquake Strikes Iran

 

Earthquake symbol

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/5/01 -- There is a danger of a major earthquake striking Iran in June/July 2002. I would anticipate that it will be at least a 7.3 magnitude, if not higher. Obviously, my theory that in time of war an projected "earthquake" could actually be a nuclear attack or massive air campaign must be kept in mind in 2002 and later years.

 

Death toll rising in northern Iran quake

Bulldozers for the IraniansJune 22, 2002 Posted: 1:28 PM EDT (1728 GMT) -- TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Hundreds of people were killed or injured as an earthquake and a series of aftershocks rocked northern Iran Saturday, Iranian media reports said.

In Boinzahra, a town in Qazvin province, at least 500 people have been killed and at least 1,500 have been injured, according to Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, a TV network.

IRNA said some 60 villages around Avaj had been razed to the ground or lost at least half of their buildings, with a pair of early strong aftershocks inflicting more damage. The Red Crescent, which mobilized to aid the residents of the region, expects more casualties, news reports said.

The National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colorado, said the quake's magnitude was 6.3. Don Blakeman, a geophysicist at the National Earthquake Information Center in Colorado in the United States said the quake took place at 7:28 a.m. local time. He said the epicenter of the quake was between the cities of Hamadan and Qazvin, around 220 kilometers (140 miles) west of Tehran, and that the terrain in the region is mountainous and has many villages.

Major aftershocks were reported for hours after the main quake. Bou'in-Zahra Gov. Ali Mousavi said the quake devastated the villages' water and power infrastructure, IRNA reported, according to The Associated Press. Buildings in the region are made of mud and are very susceptible to this type of natural catastrophe. "Usually with this kind of building we lose a lot of people," Professor Fariborz Nateghi, a government advisor on earthquake engineering, told the Reuters news agency. "You lose the walls and the ceiling collapses. They are major killers."

IRNA was quoted by Reuters as saying 80 people had been killed in one village alone near Avaj, a town of 3,600 people close to the top of a high pass through the rugged Nobaran Mountains. Iranian military forces have airdropped blankets, food, and medicine to people in the region and are helping residents set up shelters. Iran lies on a major seismic line and is prone to quakes. Moderate tremors are reported in various parts of the country almost daily. Earthquakes in northern Iran -- where the Arabian tectonic plate, pushed northward by the African plate, collides with the Eurasian plate -- tend to be especially strong ...

Major Earthquake in Greece

NEW PREDICTION: 2/6/02 -- Whilst war rages in the Balkans, the Pacific, and the Middle East, a major temblor will rock Greece in June 2002.

 

Powerful quake hits Greek islands

Thursday, August 14, 2003 Posted: 1350 GMT ( 9:50 PM HKT)

Earthquake damage on the island of Lefkada, GreeceATHENS, Greece (AP) -- A powerful earthquake struck islands in western Greece on Thursday, sending panicked residents and tourists into the streets and causing some injuries and damage, officials said.

The quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 6.4, occurred at 8:15 a.m. near the Ionian Sea island of Lefkada, about 175 miles northwest of Athens, said the Athens' Geodynamic Institute. The U.S. Geological Survey put the magnitude at 6.1.

Rescue officials said the main hospital on the island treated at least 10 people for minor injuries. A fire official, Panayiotis Fourlas, said there did not appear to be widespread serious damage to buildings, but authorities had not received full reports from villages. People raced into the streets and frightened tourists tried to leave the islands.

Some roads were blocked by falling rocks and electricity was knocked out in some areas, officials said. Most Ionian islands have ferry connections to the mainland, but Lefkada is linked by a bridge.

The quake hit as residents of the Ionion islands held memorials this week for the 50-year anniversary of a series of devastating quakes that devastated the island of Cephalonia and killed 476 people. Antonis Kalogerakis, an official at the Civil Defense Operations, said "nothing serious" was immediately reported. "All's well that ends well," Kalogerakis said.

"It was very strong. We were all asleep in my home when it happened and some things, like the television, fell down. But the damage is small. There was some panic. It mostly scared tourists, who have not felt such intense things. We have lived through many earthquakes," said Ilias Georgakis, a resident of Lefkada.

 

COMMENT (8/20/03): This was probably the awaited "earthshaker" at the powerful magnitude of 6.4. It was 14 months late, but any major temblor striking Greece before January 1, 2004 should be linked to the June 2002 vector. War is raging in the Middle East and may soon in the Pacific. The Balkans remain calm, however. I guess a 6.4 makes this prediction technically a PREDICTION FULFILLED although somewhat late. One more massive and destructive could still strike before the end of 2003.

Prince Charles

 

 

This may be an extraordinary time for new monarchies worldwide. Prince Charles will ascend to the throne of Britain either as a peace-time monarch or as a war-time monarch. If he comes to power during a time of war, his coronation will take place in June 2002. However, if Queen Elizabeth perseveres throughout the world crisis, he will not attain the throne until 2009 or 2012.

Israel Launches Decisive Air Strike

 

NEW PREDICTION: 7/30/01 -- This may be the Israeli nuclear attack on Syria mentioned by the prophet Jeremiah. It could also be a punitive air strike against Iraq or the first long-range aerial attack by Israel against Iran. The dating for this event is June 2002.

This would tend to contradict the following prediction that Israel will be conquered by Iraq in June 2002. However, the other vector for November 2002 may still hold for the conquest of Israel.

Report: Israel ready for pre-emptive strike against Iran's nuclear facility

By Ellis Shuman
israelinsider

July 19, 2004Iran's nuclear reactor at Bushehr

The Israeli Air Force has completed military preparations for a pre-emptive strike at Iran's Bushehr nuclear facility and will attack if Russia supplies Iran with rods for enriching uranium, Israeli officials said, according to a report in the London Sunday Times. Military sources said the raid would be carried out by long-range F-15I jets, overflying Turkey, with simultaneous operations by commandos on the ground.

Israel may also choose to launch submarine-based cruise missiles from the Persian Gulf at key Iranian targets, NewsMax.com reported.

The rods, currently stored at a Russian port, are expected to be delivered late next year after a dispute over financial terms is resolved, the paper reported.

An Israeli defense source in Tel Aviv, who confirmed that the military rehearsals had taken place, told the paper: "Israel will on no account permit Iranian reactors - especially the one being built in Bushehr with Russian help - to go critical."

"If the worst comes to the worst and international efforts fail," the source was quoted as saying, "we are very confident we'll be able to demolish the ayatollahs' nuclear aspirations in one go."

The Iranian nuclear threat has been on Israel's agenda for some time, and the issue was raised in talks between Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and U.S. President George W. Bush in Washington last year. The Washington Post reported in August 2003 that administration officials were increasingly concerned that Israel would launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran.

In its report, the Sunday Times quoted a senior U.S. official warning of a pre-emptive Israeli strike if Russia continues cooperating with the Iranians. He said Washington was unlikely to block Israeli attacks against Iran.

The paper also quoted from a classified document on the Iranian threat, entitled "The Strategic Future of Israel," which was presented to Sharon earlier this year. The document allegedly advocates military action against "countries which develop nuclear weapons" and describes Iran as a "suicide nation" and recommends "targeted killings" of members of the country's elite, including its leading nuclear scientists.

Israeli sources acknowledged, according to the Sunday Times, that a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities could provoke "a ferocious response," which could involve Lebanese-based rocket attacks on northern Israel or terrorist attacks against Jewish and Israeli targets abroad.

Meanwhile, Jane's Intelligence Digest reported this week that if Israel launches a pre-emptive attack against Iran, it would have to go it alone. "Any joint U.S.-Israeli precision-guided missile strike against Iran's nuclear facilities - Bushehr, Natanz or Arak - is unlikely to prove an attractive option for the U.S. administration while it remains mired in Iraq - which shares a 1,458 kilometer-long border with Iran," Jane's reported.

In 1981, Israeli Air Force jets successfully attacked and destroyed Iraq's nuclear reactor at Osirak. An attack on Iran's nuclear facilities would be much more complicated, Israeli media sources reported, because the country's nuclear program is dispersed at several sites and the distance from Israel is much greater. Iran also has the possibility to retaliate with its Shihab ballistic missiles, the reports said.

Military sources believe the IDF has the capabilities to defend Israel against a possible Iranian missile attack. Officially, due to Israel's reliance on the newly developed Arrow anti-missile defense system, the country is giving priority to diplomatic pressure to combat the Iranian nuclear threat.

 

NOTES: Unfulfilled, but this one still has promise. The rating below may change before the end of the year.

Conquest of Israel by Iraqi Forces

 

Missile attacks on Israel This prediction was originally made in 1998 and is carried over from the Year 2001 (Part Two) page. It is fleshed out a bit more here.

Israel will be conquered and occupied by Iraq in either June or November 2002. Egypt and Turkey will not hold out against the Iraqis and Iranians much longer than this either. The French prophet Nostradamus backs up this idea that Israel will be conquered in the following quatrain:

 

Quatrain 8.96

The sterile synagogue without any fruit [Israel]
Will be received, entered by the infidels
Of Babylon [Iraq], the daughter is persecuted,
Miserable and sad they will clip her wings.

nnnn

It is obvious from line 1 that the current state of Israel, founded in 1948, is not yet the true restoration of Israel prophesied in the Bible.  Needless to say, an invasion of Israel at some point would almost certainly coincide with a war against Egypt.  Here we are told that Israel will be conquered and occupied by Iraqi forces following an unsuccessful air defence.

Eventually, however, Israel will be liberated by Western forces. This will mark the final stage of a possible third World War.

Prince William Marries Emma Parker Bowles or Lady Gabriella of Windsor?

 

NEW PREDICTION: 7/2/99 (modified 7/16/00) -- Whether or not Prince Charles attains the throne in June, Britain may be celebrating a new marriage in July 2002. Although it is possible that William will once again become romantically attached to Camilla Parker Bowles' niece, Emma, it is not impossible that he will instead marry someone else at this time -- someone, as it turns out, who will also be of British royal blood. Like his mother, the late Princess Diana, he will probably wed young -- possibly at the age of 20.

Regarding William and Emma Parker Bowles, Nostradamus may have foreseen such a match.

Prince William I can now at last reveal the first half of Quatrain 10.35. If you read my page on Diana (see The Diana Prophecy), you will recall that I demonstrated that lines 3 and 4 of Quatrain 10.35 predicted Diana's murder (by vehicular homicide) in France and the subsequent pilgrimages to her shrine ("temple") at Althorp. I carefully avoided printing or discussing lines 1 and 2 because, on the surface of things, they appeared to be too scandalous. However, in light of the news which first broke in March 1999, this no longer appears to be the case. Here is the quatrain in its entirety:

nnn

The younger born royal, flagrant with ardent lust,
For enjoyment of his first cousin:
Women's attire in the temple of Diana:
Going to be murdered by the unknown one from Marne.

   
During the last few years since Diana's death, the spotlight has once again focused on Prince Charles and his long-time mistress Camilla Parker Bowles. Whether or not they will marry, to Nostradamus they must have appeared to have been a couple irregardless. If Charles and Camilla should marry, Emma Parker Bowles (Camilla's niece) would, technically-speaking, become Prince William's stepcousin -- his first cousin through marriage. The French seer's view of the relationship must have been unneccessarily prudish since such a pairing would hardly be shocking ("flagrant") by today's standards. But remember, all prophecy is seen through a glass darkly.

Last year, both newspapers and tabloids characterised William, then age 17, as being "totally smitten" by the beautiful 24-year-old Emma. It is was no secret that the infatuation was mutual, despite the eight-year age difference. If my interpretation of Nostradamus is correct, we may be hearing a great deal more about this couple, (or William and the next possible candidate for bride-to-be) as the prince reaches adulthood.

Yet another match has been given much serious discussion and consideration since late 1999; one which not only would likely meet with enthusiastic approval by the royal family, but one that would be an exact fulfillment of Nostradamus' prophecy regarding the cousin. Rumours of a possible romance or arranged marriage-in-the-works have been published concerning Prince William and his blood cousin, the lovely Lady Gabriella of Windsor, 19, daughter of Prince Michael of Kent. Lady Gabriella (or "Ella" as she has been nicknamed by friends, family, and the media) is 30th in the line of succession to the British throne.

Emma Parker Bowles
Lady Gabriella of Windsor However, according to my system of numerology, I believe the good fortune of any marriage may be challenged by negative influences if it should take place in July 2002. It would be far more propitious for William and Emma, or better yet William and Gabriella, to marry in July 2004 -- if they can wait that long.

Nevertheless, I foresee the possibility of a "double marriage" -- one between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles and the other between William and Emma or Gabriella -- at the same time of the same year (July 2002 is also a likely time for a wedding between Charles and Camilla).

Assassination of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak
(A Possible Candidate for Mabus?)

 

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak

 

NEW PREDICTION: 2/3/01 -- President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt will be gunned down by assassins in July 2002.

It is quite possible the assassins will be North African, possibly from Libya or Sudan. At this point the war in the Middle East may well spread to Africa. Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi will become a major player in the war, both in Africa and in Southern Europe.

Mubarak is one of several individuals who may be the figure Nostradamus names "Mabus" in Quatrain 2.62. If so, this will be the point when an escalation of the use of nuclear and bio-chemical weapons will take place. The comet having passed may be C/2000 WM1 or another one yet to be discovered.

Terrorist Bombing in Paris and/or a Major US City -- Osama bin Laden Demonstrates He is Alive and Well

 

Bombing in Paris and/or US city The return of Bin Laden?

 

NEW PREDICTION: 2/6/02 -- In this day and age of suicidal hijackers slamming passenger jets into buildings, it is difficult to know what the nature of this attack will be. It will definitely be "explosive." The primary target I see is Paris. Algerian terrorists may be responsible, but I suspect it will be engineered by Al Qaeda. It is also possible NYC will be attacked at this time rather than in April. I think this will be the time when Osama bin Laden, if he has not in fact been killed, will demonstrate to the world that he is alive and well with a videotape following the attack. The bombing may take place in July/August 2002.

 

NUCLEAR TERRORIST DESTRUCTION OF PARIS, ROME, OR ELSEWHERE IN EUROPE?

US officials, voice experts convinced Osama bin Laden tape authentic

Al-Jazeera has run tapes allegedly from Bin Laden

Wed Nov 13, 9:57 AM ET - DUBAI (Reuters) - Experts said Wednesday they believed the voice on a tape broadcast by independent television station al-Jazeera was that of the world's most wanted man, Osama bin Laden. Gulf officials as well as Muslim activists said they were convinced the audio tape carried the voice of the Saudi dissident with a $25 million reward on his head for allegedly masterminding last year's September 11 attacks.

U.S. officials told Reuters in Washington linguists had listened to the tape and believed it was bin Laden warning U.S. allies over backing the "White House gang of butchers." "They have had linguists listen to it and believe it is him, electronic analysis is being done," said one of the officials, who asked not to be identified.

"I am certain that it was the voice of bin Laden, the same tone and style that are impossible to fabricate," said Yasser el-Serri, a London-based Islamist sought by Washington on charges of funding bin Laden's al Qaeda network. "Anyway, we did not need the audio tape to convince us that he is alive and well because this is a known fact to Muslims," Serri told Reuters in a telephone interview.

The fate of bin Laden has remained a mystery with U.S. officials saying they would assume he was alive until presented with evidence to the contrary. The last time U.S. authorities had evidence he was alive was in December 2001. They have searched the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan, where many al Qaeda members fled following the U.S. bombing of Afghanistan.

Bin Laden has again used his channel of choice, Qatar's controversial al-Jazeera, to demonstrate he is alive by hailing the October 12 Bali bomb blasts, the killing of a U.S. Marine in Kuwait, the bombing of a French supertanker off Yemen and the Chechen hostage-taking in Moscow. The attacks, all of which occurred last month, were retaliatory strikes against U.S. allies by "pious Muslims defending their religion and heeding God's orders," he is apparently heard saying on the tape.

TAPE TO SILENCE CRITICS

"He has chosen to come out with this tape to announce all these strikes in order to silence his critics among moderate Islamists who say he is nothing but a big mouth," said Abdel-Bary Atwan, editor of London-based al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper, who interviewed bin Laden in 1996.

But why an audio tape instead of video, which bin Laden used in the past to urge Arabs and Muslims to rise up and topple their pro-Western regimes? "He probably has changed the way he looks and doesn't want to give away his new features," Atwan said.

Both Atwan and Serri said they believed bin Laden wanted to capitalize on the swelling anger among Arabs and Muslims over U.S. threats to attack Iraq and Washington's perceived support of Israel against the Palestinians. "For him, this is an excellent timing and he is presenting himself as an alternative for Arabs frustrated at their leaders' weakness in dealing with Iraq and the Arab-Israeli conflict," Atwan said.

In the tape, bin Laden accused the United States and its allies of harming Muslims in the Palestinian territories and other areas and warned, "As you kill you will be killed." He said his message was particularly addressed to the people of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Australia ...

SEE ALSO:
Officials confirm bin Laden's voice on tape - November 18.
Bin Laden condemns Iraq plans - February 11.
Alleged Bin Laden tape a call to arms - February 11.

 

COMMENT (11/14/02): This half of the prediction, at least, is fulfilled (50% FULFILLED). Bin Laden has taken responsibility for the boat bombing of a French supertanker, so some connection to "Paris" exists there. Also, he has placed the nation of France on notice -- along with the UK, Germany, Italy, Canada, and Australia -- that it will be targeted by Al Qaeda in future terrorist attacks. I have no doubt Paris will see some type of bombing as I predicted back in February. Watch also Marseilles harbour.

 

COMMENT (1/1/03): Well, here's the other 50%. It appears the Paris bombing I envisioned was a THWARTED PREDICTION.

Paris suspect 'had bomb ready to use' - December 30.
France 'foils Russian embassy attack' - December 27.

Mass Rioting Breaks Out Across the United States --

A King will be angry with the seat-breakers [Congress]

When weapons of war [firearms] are prohibited:

The poison tainted with sugar in the strawberries,

By waters murder, death, saying close, close.

Treasure placed in a temple (Fort Knox?) by American citizens,

Withdrawn, retired to a secret place,

The temple opened by famished bands.

Recaptured, ravaged, a horrible prey in the midst.

 

NEW PREDICTION: 2/6/02 -- The US war on terror -- or whatever itt will be called -- will take a turn for the worse and be perceived as immoral and dangerous. US citizens will fear for their safety as well due to terrorist attacks and nuclear threats posed by various countries, including China and Russia. It may well be that by this time, July/August 2002, nuclear attacks on a limited scale have already occurred.

Two other events that will stimulate unrest are an economic collapse following a stock market crash and scientific evidence that Planet Nibiru does indeed exist and will bring great destruction and death to earth and its inhabitants in May 2003. In the latter case, a government coverup may be proven.

In Quatrain 10.81, the resulting economic collapse in America will lead to a raid on the national treasury, possibly Fort Knox, by an angry populace. Mass rioting throughout the United States will lead to the imposition of martial law. All weapons will be banned and violators severely punished, even jackknifes and mace spray will be outlawed.

Congress will call for the U.S. to pull out completely from all military operations abroad and re-deploy its troops domestically to defend against rebel militias and hold back the huge flow of refugees, bandits, and terrorists along the southern border with Mexico and Central America. If the U.S. is at war with North Korea and China at this time it is also possible that the southern border will be the scene of military engagement with Latin American countries allied to Beijing. This scenario will bring about the rise of Fidel Castro once again as a menace to the United States.

The U.S. president will comply with mobilisation of troops to the southern border, but will refuse to end the war in the Middle East or with China and North Korea..

Future US president? Rioters blow up a business

Neither Bush nor Cheney may be president by this time, since both might well be dead. However, it is possible Bush may still be in power because a secondary vector for his assassination is August 2002. The new president, whoever he is, will take his orders from Rome and Paris.

Line 3 indicates a terrorist plot to poison strawberries being shipped into the United States, possibly from Latin America. Line 4 echoes the casualties caused by many catastrophic floods that will falsely be blamed on El Nino or sunspots and great seismic destruction in various coastal states, forecasting that more death lies ahead in the near future from Planet Nibiru.

 

... Or Will it Be the Return of the Counter Culture?

 

A return to the Summer of Love of 1967?Technically, if a counter culture was going to be established it should have happened in the autumn of 2001. Still, there is some hope for a more peaceful and idyllic climate, not entirely free of social discord, but lacking in the sort of violence that would bring about martial law. A grassroots anti-war movement may establish itself, invoking the memory of the hippie generation. Instead of fire power it will be flower power again. A summer of peace rather than a summer of violence, 1967 revisited.

Whether this will begin as a youth-oriented movement or will cover a much broader age spectrum is unknown. It is more than likely, however, that those who participated or led the last counter culture movement in the 1960s will play some role in this new incarnation.

This movement, interestingly enough, may coincide with the prophesied apparition of Diana at Althorp (see below). This could be the beginning of a true, worldwide Church of Diana.

In this morphed version of 1967, it is entirely possible that many of the people will actually welcome the coming of Planet Nibiru. I have had dreams of this that do not make sense. Great and eager expectation will occur worldwide for the coming of a celestial body that will likely wipe out 3/4 of the human race ... or worse. See Nibiru on 2003 (Part One).

Could it be that use of recreational drugs will help alter the perception of the pending cosmic holocaust? Instead of studying war this final generation will live it up while there is still time to live, knowing every day is precious.

 

Middle Eastern illegal aliens coming from Mexico

July 23, 2004

by Chris Simcox
The Tombstone Tumbleweed

Border Patrol field agents have shared some disturbing information with the Tumbleweed as well as other civilian sources with the hope the information will make it to the general public.

The Tumbleweed has verified information that a flood of middle-eastern males have been caught entering the country illegally east of Douglas, Arizona. The increased patrols in the Huachuca Mountains area of Cochise County, seems to have diverted the flow of OTM's, "other than Mexicans" east to the Chiricahua Mountains. In the last month, the Tumbleweed has confirmed at least two documented accounts of Border Patrol agents encountering large groups of non-Spanish speaking males in the Chiricahua foothills and on trails along the high mountain areas.

On or about the early morning hours of June 13, 2004 Border patrol agents from the Wilcox station encountered a large group of suspected illegal border crossers, estimated to be around 100, just east of the Sanders Ranch near the foothills of the Chiricauha Mountains. 71 suspected illegal aliens were apprehended; among them were 53 males of middle-eastern decent.

According to a Border Patrol field agent, the men were suspected to be Iranian or possibly Syrian nationals. "One thing's for sure, these guys didn't speak Spanish and after we questioned them harder we discovered they spoke poor English with a middle-eastern accent, then we caught them speaking to each other in Arabic. This is ridiculous that we don't take this more seriously, and we're told not to say a thing to the media, but I have to," said the agent, whose name will obviously remain anonymous.

The agent stated the men were wearing the traditional uniform of migrants - baseball caps, tennis shoes, some had work boots, denim jeans and many had t-shirts with patriotic American flags and slogans. The agent added the following description "A curious thing I noticed was that they all had brand new clothing and they looked as if they had just been to the barber shop, you know, new haircuts. They were clean cut and they all had almost the exact cut of mustaches."

The information was corroborated by a local rancher in the area who reports that sightings of groups similar to these are on the rise. The rancher also reports that groups of heavily armed paramilitary drug smugglers have also been seen in the same area.

"We've had groups in the hundreds coming through again. They were gone for awhile but now they're back. And of course we have the drug mules again and many are carrying automatic weapons. Many other ranchers in the area have been frustrated with the lack of response from Border Patrol.

After calling over and over again, to the Wilcox headquarters, we might get a response a few hours later. We call them in to the Border Patrol, we only have the Wilcox station, and they're so darned far away. By the time they send in the helicopters these groups are long gone. I don't know how many they catch but they're coming through here heavy right now."

On or about the evening of June 21, 2004, agents from the Wilcox Border Patrol station apprehended 24 members of a larger group of Arabic speaking males located just east of the Pierce/Sunsites area of Cochise County. At least half of the males escaped capture and disappeared into the United States.

NOTES: This was actually a complex prediction that attempted to set a feeling for the times as well as specific details. The news links above are deceiving since there were very many more from 2002. Deleting of news links was necessary so that I could make use of the space on this page, but that is no longer a problem. In time I will hopefully replace many of the links that were originally on this page with links to documentary websites summarising the events of that year.

As we all know, the US war on terror did take and has taken a turn for the worse and was perceived as immoral and dangerous by many Americans as well as by people throughout the world. The global reaction was unexpected as this prediction was targeting American society by and large. Indeed, the global reach, if anything, magnified the truth of the opening paragraph, especially in the form of mass rallies and demonstrations against the planned war in Iraq.

I see I made a typo on the date, July/August 2001, and never corrected it (it is now corrected today, 8/22/03). I think most everyone who read it knew I meant July/August 2002. This is an interesting dating for it was indeed in July/August 2002 that popular suuport for the planned war in Iraq began to slide in the US and, especially, internationally. However, the part concerning "US citizens will fear for their safety ... due to terrorist attacks and nuclear threats posed by various countries" did not begin to materialise until the North Korean Crisis began in October 2002, during the Code Orange alert early this year when the public saw the silliness and hopelessness of the Homeland Defense guidelines for the first time, and due to apprehension over the coming war in Iraq. No nuclear attacks occurred, however, and have yet to occur.

The projection for an economic collapse failed to be fulfilled. There were bloody demonstrations and rioting, much of it not reported in its completeness by the media. Again, it was largely over the planned war in Iraq. Martial law was not required.

Trouble along the southern border did occur. Reports of Al Qaeda terrorists, Iraqi agents, even foreign troops from China infiltrating from Mexico and other paths into the US have been documented. However, again, not to very great magnitude if we can believe the reports. As to mobilisation of US troops along the border, there are no verifiable reports of this, but much buzz on internet forums.

The U.S. president has refused to end the war in the Middle East, but war in the Pacific has yet to happen. Bush and Cheney are both still alive and well, so projections for a European puppet president failed to happen, thankfully.

Planet X did indeed stimulate unrest and belief in a joint government and Nasa cover-up, but only on the Internet and perhaps via talk radio. Yes, many people were afraid of its coming and many others were celebrating its approach. It all depended on what you believed Planet X would bring. The issue of Planet X was not entirely resolved by its failure to pass near the earth on May 15 and the waiting and watching continue for many. An anti-war, anti-Bush counterculture does appear to exist in the US, but it is still in its infancy. Prominent celebrities have joined the ranks of those opposed to Bush policies.

It is possible that some of the things that failed to happen in this presentation in 2002 or thus far in 2003 may yet happen before the end of the year.

RATING: +0.62

 

Continue or return to previous position.


The following prediction is not base 7-derived but is solely an interpretation of Nostradamus' Quatrain 9.74. Its success or failure has no effect whatsoever on my personal system of prediction. It could occur any year during the July/August period (the Althorp season) or at any future time when Diana's memory is venerated once more. I believe it will come to pass eventually.


Saddam City to be Bombed

 

Bombing of BaghdadQuatrain 9.74

Within the city of Fersod, homicide,

Again and again many oxen plow, not to slaughter,

A return again to the honours of Diana,

And to Vulcan dead bodies to bury.

 

Fersod is translated as Sodom by commentators Edgar Leoni (1961) and Erika Cheetham (1973). Sodom, therefore, may stand for Saddam. Saddam City lies in the southern suburbs of Baghdad. The "homicide" could refer to many things: an act of terrorism or military aggression by Iraq, the assassination or attempted assassination of an Israeli or an Arab leader, an attempt at "ethnic cleansing" in the Kurdish north, or the bombing of Baghdad itself. If so, this air campaign will be the most horrendous attack thus far to be visited on the Iraqi people. Their "dead bodies" will be committed to Vulcan, the god of fire, indicating massive air strikes. The reference to "oxen" plowing un-slaughtered suggests the heavy burden of U.N. sanctions will still be in place. As for the timing, Nostradamus provides us with a stunning clue: it will happen during a season when the memory of the late Princess Diana is honoured.

This occurs each year between July 1 and August 30 when the Spencer family estate at Althorp is opened to the public. If the prophecy concerning a miraculous appearance of Diana does occur in summer 2001, 2002, or 2003 this could be the specific meaning behind "a return to the honours of Diana." In that case, this quatrain could be describing an event that will occur around the same time as the Althorp miracle: a catastrophic air campaign conducted by Britain and the United States against Baghdad -- an event so horrendous, so criminal, that the spirit of Diana may cry out against the spilling of innocent blood. Alternatively, Iraq's crime may be so horrid and unpardonable that the Lady of the Lake will lament the victims and condemn Saddam's cruel regime.

It certainly does appear that this verse, Quatrain 9.74, is intimately related to Quatrain 4.24 -- the Vision at Althorp.

 

Massive Air Strikes Leave Baghdad Burning

By TONY KARON

Explosions rock Baghdad during a blitz of devastating air strikesFriday, Mar. 21, 2003

Day 3 of "Operation Iraqi Freedom" and Baghdad got pulverized. A massive air bombardment of Saddam Hussein's capital left the night sky burning bright , in the first installment of the promised "shock-and-awe" air campaign that U.S. commanders had held off on for the past 48 hours. Like the attempted "decapitation" strike that targeted Saddam and the multi-layered propaganda effort that followed, the latest bombardment of Saddam's power centers is to destroy the enemy's will to resist (and capacity to communicate), rather than to physically eliminate his fighting forces ...

'Baghdad is in flames'

Friday, 21 March, 2003, 23:54 GMT

BBC News

The BBC's Paul Wood and Rageh Omaar in Baghdad have been witnessing massive air strikes as the US unleashes what it calls its "shock and awe" strategy. Their movements are restricted by the Iraqi authorities.

Baghdad committed to the fires of Vulcan?Rageh Omaar:

"Wave after wave of missiles have struck all over the city. The attacks are much worse than the previous two nights.

Flashes lit up the night sky and plumes of flame and ash shot hundreds of feet into the air transforming the heart of the city. The thud of detonation as government buildings and presidential palaces were hit was audible from all parts of the city. Volleys of tracer fire light up the sky, powerless to interrupt the bombardment. And across the horizon of the capital, flames are licking around familiar landmarks.

There has been a brief lull between the waves of attack. Air raid sirens have wailed, but few people needed any warning - they have been taking shelter all day. Even in the calm of daytime, normally bustling markets are deserted as families do not dare to leave their homes."

Paul Wood:

"Baghdad's defenders tried futilely to knock down incoming missiles and aircraft which were anyway flying high above the range of the guns. But there was very little anti-aircraft fire by the time the second wave arrived. We heard the sound of aircraft flying quite flow over the city then.

One eyewitness in the Iraqi capital said there were now hundreds of armed men frantically digging trenches and making defensive positions on the outskirts of the capital."

 

COMMENT (3/20/03): During the initial "decapitation" air strike at dawn, it was reported that cruise missiles hit targets in Saddam City in the southern suburbs of Baghdad as well as other parts of the capital. The opening salvo of the war, in other words, occurred in Saddam City, as predicted above.

'The Spirit of Diana' promoOne might also make a weak link between the opening of the war in Iraq and renewed interest in the late Princess Diana as a result of the recent spiritualist television special. Diana certainly has received the most attention in recent days and months than she has since the time following her death in 1997. Still, I suspect this connection might intensify as the war wears on and Baghdad and the rest of Iraq is subjected to the anticipated "shock and awe" campaign. In any event, both main aspects of Quatrain 9.74 have occurred in March rather than during the "Althorp summer" (but one wonders where things shall be by summer).

Thus the news story above, intended to illustrate a potential fulfillment of Nostradamus' prophecy and my own prediction below for a massive war in Iraq happening in August 2002 (now seven months later than projection) may be replaced by news of the "shock and awe" campaign when it occurs, although it need not be. Technically what has happened thus far is enough. But we will study the developments to come and see ...
