Former President Jacques Chirac Dies
of Natural Causes

 

Jacques Chirac could have been Chyren had the times been a bit different

 

NEW PREDICTION: 9/24/08 -- The at times controversial voice and conscience of the European Union and president of France will die of natural causes, probably a heart attack, in January 2010. I will always consider Mr Chirac as having been the best-suited candidate as Nostradamus' future French leader Chyren/Chiren ... if we are talking about a politician. However, it appears more likely that Chyren/Chiren will be a member of a royal house that would be reigning if France had a monarchy (for example the House of Orleans) or else an actual royal prince in a nation like Belgium or Denmark who has French blood.

British heiress Robyn Whitehead, 27, was found dead from a drugs overdose at the apartment of rock musician Pete Doherty British heiress found dead after suspected overdose

ninemsn | 09:02 AEST Thu Jan 28 2010

A young British heiress has been found dead after a suspected drug overdose. The body of Robyn Whitehead, a film-maker who directed a documentary on musician Pete Doherty and his band The Libertines, was discovered at a unit in Hackney, east London, the Daily Mail reports. The 27-year-old's death is not being treated as suspicious, police said.

Whitehead is the granddaughter of the late Teddy Goldsmith, whose billionaire brother Sir James Goldsmith founded The Ecologist magazine and the Ecology Party, which became the Green Party. Police were called to the flat at 8:10pm on Monday local time, after an emergency call was made to the ambulance service. The young socialite did not live at the home where her body was found.

Whitehead's mother Dido Whitehead was reported as being too upset to speak to the British press, but a maid denied to the Evening Standard the death was drug-related. “No one really knows what happened," the woman, who declined to be named, said. Police said Whitehead's next of kin had been informed of her death and an autopsy would be conducted.

 

COMMENTS (1/31/10): Here, I fear, is the British heiress of the prediction. Police are now interrogating rocker Pete Doherty concerning his relationship to the Goldsmith granddaughter, Robyn Whitehead. Things look a bit suspicious, and the heiress and socialite had been at the Doherty residence for the last ten days, reportedly in a state of exhaustion according to some witnesses. A CCTV video shows an unidentified blonde haired woman pacing outside the flat at the time of Whitehead's death. Doherty had earlier been heard arguing with the heiress about her film. Doherty also has a reputation of forcing hard drugs like heroin into women when they are unconsious or incapacitated.

Abducted or held against her will? I don't know. Addicted to heroin, which is not something she has been known to be associated with? Maybe. Dead? Most certainly. And for this reason she appears in a related prediction of mine about an heiress, possibly the same as the British one of this prediction, found dead. This is the other prediction.

This prediction, meantime, is PARTIALLY FULFILLED unless more information comes in that proves it as completely fulfilled.

 

  Paris Hilton awakes to home intruder bearing knives

Paris Hilton (inset) came close to being murdered during a home invasion. This is by far the most serious break-in attempt while Paris Hilton was at home to date. The man, armed with kitchen knives, was clearly quite insane and would have likely killed Hilton had he got close enough to her. She was very lucky she was awake and able to call police when this happened.

August 24, 2010 -- Updated 1715 GMT (0115 HKT)

Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- A man "holding 2 big knifes" was captured by police after trying to break into Paris Hilton's Los Angeles, California, home Tuesday morning, Hilton said in a Twitter posting.

Police responded to a 911 call that someone was breaking into Hilton's Sherman Oaks home at 6:42 a.m., Los Angeles Police spokesman Gregory Beak said. Hilton was sleeping early Tuesday when a man with two kitchen knives attempted to enter her home, her publicist said. "The security cameras and alarm system were alerted and the police immediately came to the house and arrested the intruder who was attempting to break a window when they arrived," Dawn Miller said.

The police spokesman and Hilton's publicist said no one was injured. "Paris is naturally shaken by the events but is unharmed and well," Miller said. "She is very thankful to her security team and the police for their swift and diligent response."

Hilton alerted fans in a message posted on her Twitter account: "So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting him."

A man taken into custody near the home was "awaiting charges" Tuesday morning, Baek said. No one was injured, he said.

Paris Hilton tweet: Man with knives tried to rob my home while I was sleeping

Nathan Lee Parada intended to stab Paris Hilton to death

NYDailyNews.com

Tuesday, August 24th 2010, 10:54 AM

LOS ANGELES - The first thing Paris Hilton did when she woke up to a knife-wielding maniac was call 911. And then she got on Twitter. "So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes," the hotel heiress Tweeted Tuesday morning. "Cops are here arresting him." Hilton included a photo of the jeans-clad suspect in handcuffs standing on her lawn, surrounded by cops.

Nathan Lee Parada, 31, nabbed outside Hilton's home about 6:42 a.m., was charged with felony burglary, police said. "He was banging on her door and window in the backyard," Officer Bruce Borihanh told the Daily News. "It's unclear whether he specifically targeted [Hilton] or it was a random act of burglary and he didn't know anybody was home." Hilton saw the would-be intruder on a security camera and called police.

Parada has a criminal record. He was arrested in neighboring San Bernardino County last month after he allegedly used a hammer to break into a Kohl's
department store and grab $14,000 worth of jewelry.

And he has mental problems, his family said. "He has that mood problem - bipolar disorder. He's very quiet and we don't see him much," grandmother Angie Parada, 74, told The News. Asked if her grandson had a fascination with Hilton, she said "No, I never heard anything about that."

Hilton's mom was blindsided by news when she arrived home from a trip early yesterday. "Oh, my God, it's just amazing. Thank God she's okay," Kathy Hilton told The News. "I'm going up to check on her now. I'm very thankful to the police. Thank God that she saw this in time."

Paris In Knife Attack Drama

AhlanLive.com

August 24th 2010

Paris Hilton was left severely traumatised last night, after she claimed she awoke to discover a man wielding two knives trying to gain entry to her home.

Cops arrived at the scene and arrested a man later identified as Nathan Lee Parada – with Paris’s Tweeting a pic of the scene and uploading it to her Twitter page saying, “So scary, just got woken up by a guy trying to break into my house holding two big knives. Cops are here arresting him.”

The heiress says the incident went down at 6.30am this morning, and told police that Parada went around the house banging on her windows, but didn’t actually manage to enter her home.

And it’s not the first time Paris has experienced a stalker with a knife trying to reach her, after a man claiming to be her fiancé forced his way into her father’s offices and was later found to be carrying a knife.

“Paris is naturally shaken by events but is unharmed and well,” said her rep. “She is very thankful to her security team and the police for their swift and
diligent response.”

 

 

COMMENTS (8/25/10): This is by far the most serious break-in attempt while Paris Hilton was at home to date. The man, armed with two kitchen knives, was clearly quite insane and would have likely killed Hilton had he got close enough to her. She was very lucky she was awake and able to call police when this happened. We really do not know what would have happened had he got to Paris before she was able to call anyone for help. He could have taken her hostage, especially if he feared pursuit by the police, as the prediction warns. Worse than that, he could have murdered her on the spot. Knives on his person or not, he still could have killed her in many other ways, including by strangling or hanging as mentioned in the companion prediction.

Paris Hilton was named in this prediction as being the likely heiress. It was partially fulfilled with the death of British heiress Robyn Whitehead as I specified a British heiress or Paris Hilton. Although a CLOSE CALL, together with Robyn Whitehead's death, this now has the same status as a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

Worst Single Act of Terrorism in Tel Aviv
Since 1996 or 2002

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/08, PRESENTATION POSTED: 4/18/09 -- If Obama or other world leaderss are unable to establish a comprehensive peace for Israel and the Middle East this year (2009), I would expect to see a resurgence of suicide bombings in Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities. The one that may occur in January 2010 will be worse than the Passover Massacre of 2002 or the multiple bombings of February and March of 1996. Indeed, there is a possiblity, due to the 1996 base 7 influence, that after the initial blast, there may be a string of bombings to follow (thus, a multiple attack). This could, in turn, lead to a short war in Lebanon similar to the ones that occurred in 1996 and, most recently, 2006.

Aegean and Black Sea Crisis

Islands Confrontation May also Occur Between Spain
and Morocco
or Libya and Italy

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/08, PRESENTATION POSTED AND MODIFIED 12/10/09 -- This prediction is indeed confused and may well have more than one facet to it. Look to a possible conflict over islands in the Aegean or the island of Cyprus between Turkey and Greece or islands in dispute between Spain and Morocco or Libya and Italy. At this time there may also be a crisis between Turkey and Russia in the Black Sea and/or terrorism, perhaps even piracy, in the Bosporus Strait. The base 7 dating for these events is January 2010.

 

  10 Aid Workers Held Hostage on Greek Owned Ship – Gaza Road to Hope Convoy

Sea of Gaza

Intifada Palestine

Nov-10-2010 16:02

(DERNA PORT, Libya) – “Strofades IV” has broken its moorings, without port permission, and is heading out of Derna Harbour. The rear door of the ship is half closed, with convoy vehicle B7 stuck on it precariously. It is extremely dangerous.

In the lower deck of the Ro-Ro (rollon rolloff) ship are held hostage:
Including:
3 Libyans – (2 port authority policemen, with Colonel Salahuddin Rashin, Manager of Derna Port)
1 Moroccan
1 Algerian
2 Irish
6 UK nationals

The violent Greek owner who is also its captain of “Strofades IV” has just disembarked (as at 22.50 GMT) through a side door of the ship, onto a speed boat. His speed boat has made for another cargo vessel in Derna the harbour – “Odin Finder”.

None of our guys now know who is in charge of Strofades IV, or where it is destined to go. The ship is empty, apart from the hostages and single convoy vehicle jammed in the doorway. It is making rapid headway to get out to sea.

The matter is a serious breach of every maritime law possible.We have asked all relevant Embassies to supply urgent, immediate, consular assistance. We are EXTREMELY concerned for the safety of all the nationals on board.

Greek commandos board Gaza-bound ship

Gaza convoy stalled by captain

November 12, 2010 -- Updated 1532 GMT (2332 HKT)

Athens, Greece (CNN) -- Greek commandos boarded a Gaza-bound aid ship -- whose mission went awry and turned into a hostage situation after a dispute with the ship's captain -- in a harbor off the country's coast Friday, an official with the activist organization sponsoring the vessel said.

The people on board, who had been described as hostages by the charity group that sponsored the voyage, were safe and uninjured, but still awaiting word from Greek authorities on their legal status, said Ellie Merton, a representative of the Road to Hope organization in London, England.

Greece's merchant marine ministry said the ship, Strofades IV, had docked in the Greek port city of Pireaus. Merton said the ship was taken over in Libya by its captain on Thursday after the ship captain "went nuts" and allegedly kidnapped the convoy members on board after an argument, according to the charity. "Everyone was astounded. Nobody could have scripted this. It's just bizarre," said Merton, who said she had been in touch with members of the Gaza-bound convoy via text message and Facebook.

Ten convoy members -- seven Britons, two Irish citizens and an Algerian -- were taken hostage, the group said. As many as seven Libyans, including customs inspectors and border police, were also being held on the ship, according to Road to Hope. Road to Hope's Facebook page stated that four Libyan naval vessels and two fighter jets had surrounded the ship, before it headed into international waters. "The matter is a serious breach of every maritime law possible. We have asked all relevant embassies to supply urgent, immediate, consular assistance. We are extremely concerned for the safety of all the nationals on board," Road to Hope said in a statement Thursday.

Merton said Friday that other members of the convoy, left behind in Libya after the boat set sail, remained determined to reach Gaza before Eid, the upcoming Muslim holiday that commemorates the prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son for God. "That's the urgency of the situation, because they want to get the aid into the besieged people," she said.

According to Road to Hope, if all had gone according to plan, the boat would have left Libya loaded with aid for Gaza. And 55 more volunteers would have been on board. The ship was originally destined for Egypt, with the intention of delivering goods via land into Gaza. But after the captain's argument with an Egyptian broker, the ship left behind the aid group's cargo and a large group of volunteers.

Greek commandos board Gaza-bound aid ship, hold crew

British activists detained after argument with captain over payment.

Published 18:04 12.11.10 Latest update 18:04 12.11.10

Greek commandos boarded a Gaza-bound aid ship on Friday in the country's main harbor of Pireaus amid an apparent dispute between the ship's captain and the aid group over money, media reports in Athens said. The 10 British aid workers from the Road to Hope organization in London said they were being treated like terror suspects by the Greek commandos.

The organization said the Maltese-flagged ship, Strofades IV, with 16 crew members was originally supposed to sail from Libya to El Raidin, Egypt with the aid then to be transported via land route to Gaza. But following an argument between the ship's Greek captain and an Egyptian broker, the aid group's cargo and nearly 70 other volunteers were left behind in Libya and the ship sailed to Pireaus instead.

The volunteers said the captain feared the agent would not pay him the 90,000-dollar fee for the voyage to Gaza. The Greek Ministry of Citizens Protection said ship's owners are the Pireaus-based Ionion Bridge Shipping Management.

Ministry officials said all those on board the vessel were in good health.

 

 

COMMENTS (11/17/10): This incident is confusing as hell. But it would appear that the "terrorists" holding the hostages in this case was the Greek captain and, later, the Greeks themselves. But let us not forget that Greece is now a strategic ally of Israel, taking the place of Turkey. It won't be long before the Iranians have some choice words for the Greek government for forging this alliance and, one day, as envisioned by the prophet Daniel, will declare war on "the realm of Grecia."

As I predicted, the Aegean Sea (it would be either the Aegean or the Black Sea) became the scene of crisis when this ship was stormed by Greek commandos. Even the Libyans got involved, also mentioned in my prediction, as hostages and, earlier on, also militarily when four Libyan naval vessels and two fighter jets surrounded the ship before it headed into international waters. Morocco too, also mentioned, became involved because one of the hostages was Moroccan. Neighbouring Algeria also for the same reason.

I consider this a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

However, something else caught my eye that made me pause to reflect:

 

Scot amongst captured aid workers on Greek ship

STV News 12 November 2010 12:05 GMT

Image from the newly released video clip of the Strofades IVOne of the seven British aid workers who was held captive on a ship in the Libyan sea in a dispute with the captain over money is thought to be Scottish. Volunteers on the Road to Hope convoy, an independent humanitarian group bringing aid to Gaza, were taken out to sea on their ship Strofadas IV after the row with the Greek captain over a payment. One of the men held is convoy leader Kieran Turner, a humanitarian aid worker who lives in Liverpool. Mr Turner is understood to also have links with Scotland. A spokeswoman from the Foreign Office would not give any personal details of the captives, but told STV News the situation is "ongoing".

Reports on Friday from a number of media organisations suggested that Greek commandos had boarded the ship and searched the aid workers. Others have stated the men are being treated like terrorists and have now arrived at the Piraeus Harbour - the main port in Athens.

Ellie Merton, London liaison for the convoy, said on Thursday: "We are astonished that this has happened - shock isn't the word. As far as I know, the boat owner became really aggressive over a payment for something, tried to shut the back end of the boat and moved away from the pier really fast. The boat was still attached to the quayside and as he drove he yanked the ropes off, there were bits of concrete flying everywhere. We have lost telephone contact with those who are still on the ship against their will - without any paperwork, passports or authority to leave Libya, possessions or, when we last heard, food or water. We're extremely concerned - the boat's not seaworthy and the captain has shown he is willing to risk life and limb of himself, his crew and the aid workers."

As well as the seven British volunteers, two Irish, one Algerian and three Libyan officials were on the ship, all aged between 24 and 60 years old.

Gaza aid workers taken ‘hostage’ arrive in Greece

STV News 12 November 2010 16:36 GMT

Aid worker, Kieran Turner of Scotland, pictured on the Strofades IV, is leader of the convoy. Pic: © Road to HopeKieran Turner, a Scot with connections to the Inverness area, was one of the aid workers caught up in the incident.

Seven British aid workers en-route to the Gaza Strip are in the hands of Greek authorities on Friday after a bizarre dispute with the captain of their boat.

A group from the Road to Hope convoy were on the Strofades IV on a mission to bring aid to the people of Gaza. However, they claim they were taken hostage from the Derna Harbour in Libya while the boat was still tied to the harbour after a payment dispute with the captain of their ship.

One of the seven men is Kieran Turner, a humanitarian aid worker who lives in Liverpool. Mr Turner also has links with Scotland, and STV News understands he has family living in the Inverness area ...

Mr Turner, 38, is the leader of the convoy.

 

I am sure a lot of people who read that article had at least a hazy memory of one of Nostradamus' quatrains about a Scot being taken captive, along with six other British, on the choppy waters of some Eastern sea. Well, almost but not quite. Here is the actual quatrain:

 




Nostradamus, Quatrain 3.78 ~

Le chef d'Escosse, auec six d'Allemagne,
Par gens de mer Orient aux captif:
Trauerseront le Calpre & Espagne,
Present en Perse au nouueau Roy craintif.

The leader from Scotland with six of Germany (or France),
Held captive by people of the Eastern sea:
Passing from Gibraltar and Spain,
Presented in Persia to the new King dreadful.



So, the other six, according to Nostradamus, are to be German or French, not British. Even so, the Scot could be either the first minister of Scotland (currently Alex Salmond) or else an important leader from Scotland. Kieran Turner, one of the hostages, is a Scot and is the leader of the aid convoy. The Eastern sea could be the Black Sea or the Arabian Sea or even the Persian Gulf. However, Nostradamus might have considered the Aegean Sea as Eastern as well. To Western Europeans of his time, the Balkans (which includes Greece), and nations that would later become the former Warsaw Pact, and nations that would later become the former Soviet Union were as much a part of "the East" as the Arab, Mongol, Tartar, and Persian lands.
The sea shown in the top article is the Sea of Gaza: the destination of the aid ship captured by the Greeks. The Sea of Gaza is definitely an "Eastern sea" ... and it is because of the people of this sea that the Brits, Irish, Libyans, Algerians, and the rest were taken captive. But they never departed from as far west as Gibralter and Spain. Or did they?

Gibraltar is a British overseas territory. Britons make up 27% of the population and Spanish 26%. Technically, Nostradamus could use Gibraltar to represent Great Britain which took control of the territory in 1713. After all, if the French seer could look ahead to events during the 1792-94 period of the French Revolution it would stand to reason he would have also known Gibraltar's destiny as a British possession in 1713. Thus, seven of the captives were Britons who came from the United Kingdom in Europe (of which Gibralter is a part).

Another translation for "Present en Perse au nouveau Roy craintif" is "Present in Persia for the new King fearful." Thus, rather than being presented as captives to a dreadful new Iranian leader, a new Iranian leader will be made apprehensive or worried about this event unfolding. Undoubtably, the new leader of Iran will understand the prophecies for Persia and Elam made by Daniel, Jeremiah, Rigord of St. Denis, and Nostradamus about Iran starting a major war due to the actions of Israel, Greece, and the Nations (Europe or EU). Daniel is a respected prophet in Islam, so I am sure the warnings about the war between Persia and Grecia in particular are worrisome to those who heed him. After all, Daniel says it will be a mighty king from the West who shall defeat Persia and her Mede allies, crushing them and, as warned by Jeremiah, occupying them as well.

The above quatrain comes rather uncomfortably close to having been fulfilled, if not for the error in line one about the Germans or French being held captive rather than the British. This calls into question Nostradamus' accuracy. Is the leadership in Iran nervous about the role Greece is playing, as implied in line four? If so, and there is no way to verify the Persian reaction for certain (at least at this time), it is possible the French seer may have been confused or mistaken about the six captives of Allemagne ... and his prophecy has otherwise been fulfilled. This was a confusing event, after all. Nevertheless, I do think events in the Aegean in recent days have at least set the precedent for this quatrain seeing complete fulfillment in the near future ... perhaps in 2013-14 or in 2017?

US Warship Seized by North Korea in Sea of Japan

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/24/09, PRESENTATION POSTED: 12/27/10 -- As 2010 winds down to a close, it is important that as many loose ends as possible be tied up in the days ahead, which includes predictions from the list at the bottom of this page which appeared on the Second Home page on December 24, 2009, that have not yet been posted in the customary manner (like this, in other words).

We saw a South Korean ship sunk by the North back in March. However, that was not the same thing as a seizure of a US naval vessel. This was to happen in January 2010. Perhaps it still may during the adjacent year of 2011. We shall see.

False Planet X: Ancient Comet or Comet Pair Will Be
Discovered Heading Towards Earth

 

Astronomer points out new comet

 

NEW PREDICTION: 7/4/08:

In January/February 2010 Nasa will announce the discovery of one of the following:

1) a large, ancient comet that will pass very close to the earth in March 2010, likely by a factor of only a few million miles. It will be logged as the largest comet ever seen, rivalling Lexell's Comet in appearance.

2) two comets that will approach near to the earth simultaneously in March 2010, either from two different locations in space, or else they will be close together, either by chance, or in the form of a rare cometary binary system, or else two fragments that break off of one approaching comet.

Many Planet X believers will come to believe the approaching comet or the larger of two approaching comets is actually Nibiru arriving earlier than scheduled. For this reason, panic will begin to grip the earth's inhabitants.

Whichever the case may be, the comet, or comets, are projected to pass by the earth harmlessly. If two comets, there is a remote possibility the two will impact each other in space, causing no harm to our planet or humanity.

To stem off immediate chaos worldwide due to the universal fear this object, or objects, will cause, most world governments will make some sort of official statement assuring everyone the March 2010 comet or comets will cause no harm to anyone. In any case astronomy and Nasa experts will be called upon to give their assessment of the situation and thus calm the public's apprehension. The experts will be speaking truthfully, because the comet or comets will indeed pose no danger.

Again, however, whilst levelling with the people about the coming March 2010 event, all governments will continue to deny the existence of Planet X (Nibiru) and blast it as an internet conspiracy theory run amok. All governments, except for one, that is ....

 

Could Gliese 710 be the real Planet X??

Have a good look at this star. For astronomers have discovered that it is on course to collide with the outskirts of our solar system with potentially catastrophic consequences. New calculations show that the orange dwarf, called Gliese 710, will crash through the Oort Cloud that surrounds the Sun. The disruption to this shell of many billions of icy fragments would launch a shower of comets into the inner solar system, threatening the planets with devastating impacts.

Scientists claim Gliese 710 is five times the mass of Jupiter and responsible for past mass catastrophes occurring since 26 million years ago.

 

COMMENTS (3/23/10): Time will tell if this disclosure by Nasa is yet another "false" report of Planet X. Its falseness may lie in the fact that Gliese 710, which is a brown dwarf star, is not Nibiru (which everyone knows is a brown dwarf star). The size of Gliese is also consistent with the largest specifications given for Nibiru as opposed to the smallest (three times the size of earth). Additionally, a deceptive exaggeration has this star not posing the earth any danger for another million years, likely intended to lull the public into further complacency whilst giving it what may be the first honest report of the coming of Planet X/Nibiru.

The timing of this period is highly suspicious given that we are nearing the dangerous period of the supposed Mayan "end year" 2012. The timing of the report comes after yet another a giant comet has passed through the inner solar system and plunged into the sun, with the status of the ancient puliverising comet P/2010 A2, reportedly incoming, still unknown.

Hollywood Horrors Part One:
Aspiring/B-film Actress Horrifically Murdered

Hollywood macabre

NEW PREDICTION: 12/9/08 -- This particular timeline, 1926-2010, has witnessed the most bizarre, kinky, and grotesque series of murders, suicides, and mysterious deaths ever recorded. Elizabeth Short, nicknamed "The Black Dahlia" because she always wore black clothes, was a 22-year-old aspiring model who wished to act in movies. Although there are plenty of press release publicity photos of Short, she never realised her dream. On the night of January 14, 1947 she was last seen leaving the Biltmore Hotel with a "gentleman" -- quite possibly someone posing as a studio agent. Her body was found, severed in half, with her mouth slit apart into a grotesque smile, in the Crenshaw District January 15, 1947. Likely the most horrific and gruesome murder ever recorded in Hollywood's history was made into a film by "master of suspense" director Brian de Palma in 2007.

More recently on this same timeline we find yet another classic case, still being tried in a courtroom: that of B-film queen Lana Clarkson who was found shot to death in the Hollywood Hills mansion of legendary record producer and "Wall of Sound" creator Phil Spector on February 3, 2003. Indeed, the murder of an aspiring or B-film actress like Lana Clarkson was predicted by me to happen in 2003 based on the Black Dahlia slaying discussed above. I even had an approximation of the first name, Laura or Laurel rather than Lana, figured out and the partial name "Clark" the day before her murder was reported. Clarkson had been shot through the mouth and brain, and it remains unclear whether she was terrorised and murdered by Spector or if she had taken the gun and engaged in erotic edge play with the weapon, playfully sucking on the gun barrel and simulating fellatio, only to accidentally squeeze the trigger and kill herself. Indeed, it can be seen from some of the photos taken of the body that her legs are bare all the way up apparently to her crotch which is barely covered by her sweater. It is obvious to anyone that she is not wearing shorts but is either wearing panties or no panties at all, indicating that Spector may have been masturbating her while she sucked on the gun.

Then there are the film curses of 1982 which resulted in a murder for a new actress and gruesome accidental death for a famous actor. Poltergeist (1982) and Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983) were both being shot that year by Steven Spielberg and his associates. Actor Vic Morrow and two child actors would be horrifically beheaded in a Vietnam helicopter sequence of Twilight Zone's first of four stories when an accident on the set of the film caused the copter to crash and the blades to decapitate Morrow. As for Poltergeist actress Dominique Dunne, who played the older sister of the film's character "Carol Anne" (played by the late child actress Heather O'Rourke, who died in 1988), her life would end tragically on November 4, 1982 at the age of 22. During an argument with her ex-boyfriend, John Thomas Sweeney, on the evening of October 30, 1982, Sweeney would follow her out to the driveway of her estate and strangle her into a vegetative state of virtual brain death. She died five days later in a coma she would not and could not have ever emerged from.

Other notable Hollywood murders of aspiring, new, or faded actresses on this timeline include actress Rebecca Schaeffer, age 21, who starred in the TV sitcom, My Sister Sam, and one film, The End of Innocence. The future looked bright on July 18, 1989 when she prepared to meet with director Francis Ford Coppola to audition for his film, Godfather III. However, when she opened the door to her apartment she found herself face to face with a man named John Bardo, a deranged fan who had been stalking her for over two years. Bardo shot Schaeffer in the chest. She died instants later.

Then there was 36-year-old actress Barbara Colby, gunned down on July 24, 1975 along with actor James Kiernan as they walked to her car after teaching an acting class in Los Angeles. She had appeared in the TV series The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Columbo, and The Odd Couple.

Back to 1982 again, the year of the Dunne murder, and there was one close call: actress Theresa Saldana, like Rebecca Schaeffer seven years later, was herself attacked by a homicidal fan. Saldana, like Schaeffer, was an "up and coming" actress. She had starred in several films since her debut in 1978: I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Defiance, and Raging Bull. A whacked-out fan named Arthur Jackson planned to get caught and executed after murdering Saldana so he could join her in death. When Saldana opened the door of her apartment, Jackson pulled a knife and stabbed her ten times. A deliveryman intervened and disabled the stalker. Fortunately, Theresa Saldana survived her injuries and went on to continue with her film career.

In any event, whether it is a macabre and gruesome homicide reminiscent of the Black Dahlia Murder, or a spectacularly kinky mystery murder or suicide like the Lana Clarkson/Phil Spector case, or simply a straightforward, brutal murder without any significant mystery attached to it, there is a strong likelihood that a young aspiring actress or a popular B-film siren will be murdered, possibly quite horrifically, in January/February 2010.

Clue: the victim may be a friend of heiress Paris Hilton or murdered socialite Martine vik Magnussen.

 

 

Playboy model Paula Sladewski, 26, was found dead, burned and charred beyond recognition, in a trash binCOMMENTS (1/11/10): This is about as gruesome as gruesome gets ... burned and charred beyond recognition. The actual cause of death has not been determined ... it is suspected she was killed before her body was put in the bin and burned.

But this may not necessarily be the case. A similar murder occurred in California last year to young local woman whose charred-beyond-recognition body was also found in a trash bin. She had been doused with an accelerant of some kind and burned alive, right there in the dumpster. That young woman died a horrible death.

Could this be the event that matches this prediction? It certainly could. Consider who Elizabeth Short, otherwise known as "The Black Dahlia," was: a small time model who was running around Hollywood taking screen tests to become an actress. She wasn't even famous or even known to the public ... until she became a sawn-in-half corpse. She died in January too ... January 1947. Paula Sladewski had some degree of noteriety by being linked to Playboy and it is being reported she also was interested in a career as an actress.

I guess it will now be a question of how far the media go with this ... will the killer ever be caught or never be found? If they think they know who killed her, the question then is why, and what was the actual cause of death?

But never forget how fickle the media is these days. A story like "The Black Dahlia," which went down as one of the most infamous murders of the 20th Century, today might get about four to six weeks attention and then be forgotten forever. A case like that of Rebecca Schaeffer might fare little better.

The only reason the Lana Clarkson murder achieved so much publicity in 2003 was because her alleged (and now convicted) killer was the legendary music producer Phil Spector.

Even if another more famous case is yet to occur this year, I have to go with my instincts and the timing of it to say the apparently grisly murder of Playboy model Paula Sladewski is a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

Reality TV Star Tila Tequila Assaulted Topless by Mob at Concert; Pursued and Nearly Lynched at Trailer

 

Tila Tequila attacked with bottles and rocks during gig

Tila Tequila, AKA Tila Nguyen

Monsters and Critics

Aug 16, 2010, 13:54 GMT

Reality star Tila Tequila was attacked with bottles and rocks while performing a gig. Tila, 28, was performing on stage at the music festival Gathering of the Juggalos in Hardin County, Illinois.

The gig was put together by hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse and onlookers told CNN that Tila was 'pretty cut up' after leaving the stage following the attack. She was then pursued by hundreds of people, who shook her trailer and smashed the windows.

Writing on her Twitter page later, she said: 'The people at Juggalos behaviour was disgusting and I am filing a suit against them now.' She added: 'Pretty soon the owners who run the Juggalos will be bankrupt. My attorney Alan is already on it. This is disgusting behaviour from men.'

Even the guys INSIDE with me were shaking! Their hands were shaking cuz they were so scared! So 3 guys inside the trailor had to grab a table and push it over the broken windows and grabbed all the chairs they could find so hold the people from outside back. It was scary as hell!"

Hardin County Sheriff Tom Seiner said "there's 800 concertgoers out there approximately this year and it's going to be very hard to identify anyone who threw that threw the things at her. It's like a mob of retards trying to lynch one of their own because she took her top off."

Topless Tila Tequila Attacked

PostChronicle.com

Aug 17, 2010

Illinois police are investigating allegations Tila Tequila was attacked while performing at a music festival in the state, after the reality star accused revellers of pelting her with beer bottles and fire crackers. The star, real name Tila Nguyen, recently released pictures of her bruised and bloodied face, claiming the injuries were the result of a prolonged attack when she was rapping at the Gathering of the Juggalos event, which began on Thursday.

The 28 year old, who is reportedly planning to file suit against event organisers, told TMZ.com she fled the stage only to be followed by several revellers who were "trying to kill" her.

Hardin County police were called to calm the situation, and Sheriff Tom Seiner admits "things got out of hand" during the festival. Seiner tells the website deputies were not on scene at the time of the star’s reported incident because they were already responding to reports of a stabbing. TMZ.com has obtained a video of the incident, in which Tequila is seemingly being protected by four security guards as members of the crowd hurl liquid-filled bottles and other missiles at her during the set. A spokesperson for the event had not returned requests for comment as WENN went to press.

Tila Tequila Was Topless During Concert Attack

Aug 17, 2010 @ 12:48PM

Tila Tequila bared her boobs before the bizarre onstage attack over the weekend, in which a group of clown makeup-wearing concertgoers hurled rocks, bottles and even “human poop” at the reality starlet.

Tila was making her hip-hop debut at the Gathering of Juggalos, a music festival in Illinois, when fans wearing clown makeup -- supporters of the band Insane Clown Posse -- began throwing projectiles at the stage. “Everyone started booing,” Tila says in a new interview.

“I was like, 'Alright, this is a violent and tough crowd,' so I went out there just to try and have fun... But immediately before I got up there, things were being thrown, there was so much stuff being thrown, besides just beer bottles." Tequila says at one point “human poop” was thrown at her.

A topless Tequila was soon taken off stage with visible cuts and bruises and blood streaming down her forehead -- more photos here. Tequila, most famous for her reality show A Shot At Love, posted a Twitter Saturday, saying she would sue the festival, which is organized for fans of the hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse.

She says, "Because it's been such an underground type of concert and I'm glad that I could bring this to mainstream and expose them for what they do to people and women and that it's not OK."

Reality Star Tila Tequila Attacked By Mob At Music Festival

Tuesday, August 17, 2010 8:06:22 AM

Aug 17, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Reality television star Tila Tequila hogged the limelight once again after the singer supposedly had to bear the brunt of a violent crowd who launched a vicious attack on her as she was about to commence her performance at a musical festival over the weekend. When the reality star went on stage to perform at the “Gathering of the Juggalos” music fiesta, the crowd reacted by throwing bottles and pelting rocks at her forcing her to seek refuge.

While revealing details of the incident, the 28-year-old television personality told the media that as soon as she went on stage, the hundreds of people gathered at the event went crazy as they threw huge stone rocks as well as beer bottles on her face that left her injured. As the crowd went out of control, her body guards and the other security personnel escorted her to the trailer but that did not stop the mob who went on to chase the reality star and smash the windows of the trailer while also attempting to storm inside the vehicle.

In the meanwhile, the incident that Tila Tequila had been mobbed by the crowd has been confirmed by the Hardin County Sheriff Tom Seiner but intrinsic details of the incident has not been revealed to the media. The reality star has, however, divulged her plans to file a lawsuit against the organizers of the concert through the micro-blogging site Twitter where she also goes on to say that very soon the owners of the ‘Gathering of the Juggalos’ would be going bankrupt.

 

 

COMMENTS (8/21/10): This one is a CLOSE CALL. It has all of the ingredients of the prediction: bizarre, kinky (as she was topless and this somehow prompted the crowd into a frenzy of bloodlust), and potentially horrific (if Tila had been killed). It would have been the first murder of an actress by lynching in history. One might call Tila Tequila an "aspiring" actress even though she is a reality TV star. It is a minor technicality.

Al Qaeda and Taliban Launch "Tet" Offensive
Against US and Nato Troops

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/09, PRESENTATION POSTED 12/10/09 -- The following originally appearred on the Second Home page on November 27, 2009:

The failure of the Middle East peace process and the escalation of US troops into Afghanistan and likely neighbouring Pakistan ... demonstrate the worst features of 1967 from a base 7 perspective. In 1967 the Paris Peace Talks failed and there was a major escalation of troops into Vietnam. Obama is following in the footsteps of the final two years of the Lyndon Banes Johnson administration (1967 and 1968). If true, things will get much worse in the region of Central and South Asia as well as in the Middle East proper.

We are now following the path of the classic "quagmire conflict" Vietnam ... not only in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but increased violence and terrorism in Iraq which is but a prelude to what is to come next year. We shall likely see a "Tet Offensive" occur in Afghanistan very soon, possibly in February 2010. The Taliban and Al Qaeda may launch this rapid "Tet offensive" in Afghanistan, driving out many US and Nato troops. Their forces may then capture the city of Jalalabad and eventually Kabul.

What happens next depends on what key parts of the country are actually regained by the Taliban, or if their efforts are repelled at a cost of many US and Nato casualties, and, if the Taliban and al-Qaeda are successful in taking Kabul, whether shaken US and Nato forces will decide to retain their presence elsewhere in Afghanistan and nearby Pakistan to continue to fight.

Massive Earthquake Strikes Algeria

 

Massive destruction attends the great earthquake that demolishes much of Algeria, including the capital Algiers

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/08, PRESENTATION POSTED: 12/10/09 -- A destructive 7.5 to 8.0 magnittude quake will rock the city of Algiers, leaving nearly 3000 dead and 10,000 injured, with thousands more reported missing. 75% of Algiers will be destroyed. Heavy damage and causalties in several other towns. There will also be a strong aftershock an hour afterwards and many large aftershocks will follow in May and June, destroying many additional houses and buildings. Potential for tsunamis exist. Base 7 dating: February 2010 or August 2010.

Killer Earthquake Strikes China

 

Great China Quake of 2010

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/08, PRESENTATION POSTED: 10/19/09 -- The powerful 8.0 quake which sttruck China's Sichuan Province in May 2008 killed nearly 70,000. This quake, which should occur about February 2010, should fall in the 7 magnitude range rather than 8, but will likely equal the destruction caused by the 2008 temblor. However, prospects of warning residents about this quake ahead of time are good, which may result in a very low number of killed and injured that might otherwise occur. Yet, neither this quake nor the May 2008 quake will approach the nearly million casualties a seismic shock will cause in China in July/August 2011. These two quakes are merely foreshocks to a much greater scene of devastation to come.

So as not to repeat the "Curse of 1976," both vectors should be studied and prepared for. Even if the 2010 earthquake fails to occur, the 2011 temblor will likely take place.

 

Hundreds dead in China quake, Xinhua reports

April 14, 2010 -- Updated 0552 GMTThe earthquake struck China's Qinghai province

  • About 300 people killed, 8,000 injured from earthquake, China state media report

  • Rapid series of strong earthquakes hit China's Qinghai province

  • The 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck at 7:49 a.m. local time (7:49 p.m. ET Tuesday)

  • Military official: Soldiers setting up tents and transporting oxygen for the injured

(CNN) -- A rapid series of strong earthquakes hit a mountainous and impoverished area of China's Qinghai province early Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. About 300 people were killed, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported, adding that another 8,000 have been injured. Many others, including primary schoolchildren, were feared buried under debris after a 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck at 7:49 a.m. local time (7:49 p.m. ET Tuesday), when many people were probably still at home and schools were beginning the day.

China state television broadcast emergency workers on the sceneThe USGS also recorded three strong aftershocks -- of magnitudes 5.8, 5.2 and 5.3 -- all within two hours of the first quake. "We have to mainly rely on our hands to clear away the debris as we have no large excavating machines," police officer Shi Huajie told Xinhua. "We have no medical equipment, either."

A Chinese military official told Xinhua that the death toll was expected to rise, given the damage to homes. He said dispatched soldiers were setting up tents and transporting oxygen for the injured but affected roads leading to the airport could hamper relief efforts.

The Ministry of Civil Affairs plans to distribute 5,000 tents, 50,000 coats and 50,000 quilts to the earthquake zone, Xinhua said.

The epicenter was located in remote and rugged terrain, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) northwest of Qamdo, Tibet. Qinghai borders the autonomous regions of Tibet and Xingjiang and the provinces of Gansu and Sichuan. Xinhua said the quake hit the prefecture of Yushu, a Tibetan region of Qinghai with about 80,000 people.

More than 85 percent of the houses in the county seat of Jiegu, had collapsed, a prefecture official told Xinhua. "Many are buried in the collapsed houses, and there are still lots of others who are injured and being treated at local hospitals," he said. Xinua said residents near the epicenter also reported casualties and collapsed buildings. Karsum Nyima, deputy director of news at local Yushu TV, told Xinhua that most of the houses in the area were made of wood with earthen walls. He said some had come tumbling down, including a Buddhist pagoda in a park.

 

 

COMMENTS (4/14/10): I am sorry to say that this appears to be a PREDICTION FULFILLED, two months late ... and I would not be surprised to see the death toll rise well into the thousands. Again, I must stress this, a much more powerful quake will likely strike China again next year and it will be counted among the worst in the history of the world.

King Mohammed VI of Morocco Overthrown in Coup

 

Nostradamus, Quatrain 6.54 ~

At break of day, at second crow of the cock, those of Tunisia, of Morocco, and of Algeria, by the Arabs
the King of Morocco is captured, in the year 1670, by the Liturgy [the Council of Nicaea].

 

Missiles are fired at Morocco from Algeria and Tunisia King Mohammed VI

 

OLD PREDICTION: 2/6/02 -- February 2010. Rebels belonging to the Islamic Salvation Front will wage their fiercest military campaign against the Algerian government to date. This time the government in Algiers will be overthrown. Coup d'e etat elements within Morocco, supported by newly-formed Islamic fundamentalist states in Tunisia and Algeria, will then attempt the overthrow of the pro-Western Moroccan king, King Mohammed VI. Terrorism will be rampant throughout North Africa and in neighboring France. French troops may even be deployed to Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco to defend the legitimate governments against the rebel forces.

 

COMMENTS (11/11/10): Very strange. Actually much of what is described is happening now on the other side of Morocco ... in the Western Saraha by the Polisario Front and the terrorist group Al Qaeda. Terrorism is not running rampant throughout France ... but the threat of such terrorism, by Al Qaeda, is. French troops are deployed in Mauritania, but not yet to Algeria, Tunisia, or Morocco ... although Algeria is gradually becoming involved in this North African conflict. French hostages have been taken, with one citizen recently beheaded. Ergo, we may be seeing the early stages of this prediction in progress.

 

Smoke billows from a fire in Regue, TunisiaProtestors clash with riot police on January 7, 2011 in central Oran, 430 kilometres (270 miles) west of Algiers

 

COMMENTS (1/10/11): Parts of this prediction have been in the process of being fulfilled since last year and also in recent days. Rioting is raging in Algeria and Tunisia, and the Al Qaeda-sponsored AQIM operating from Mauritania to Chad has started making inroads in the Western Sahara and is attempting to cause trouble in Morocco. AQIM is based in Algeria, but a cell dismantled in Western Sahara was led by a Moroccan citizen. Also, as mentioned in the above comment and in the prediction, French troops are deployed in neighbouring Mauritania. Surrounded by violent revolutions and terrorism, it may not be too many more months before the government of King Mohammed VI himself is threatened.

US Sub Sinks Off US Coast With Nuclear Missiles On Board

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/24/09, PRESENTATION POSTED: 12/27/10 -- As 2010 winds down to a close, it is important that as many loose ends as possible be tied up in the days ahead, which includes predictions from the list at the bottom of this page which appeared on the Second Home page on December 24, 2009, that have not yet been posted in the customary manner (like this, in other words).

This is yet another of a number of sub-related or ship-related accidents, disasters, or military clashes that have, thus far, failed to materialise despite all of the many base 7 indications favouring such incidents. This one was to have occurred in March 2010. Again, time may still tell in the months ahead.

"Shock and Awe" Comes to Tehran:
The United States Launches Air War Against Iran

 

Shock and awe comes to Tehran

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/09, PRESENTATION POSTED: 12/10/09 -- This need not happen, but the ddanger this will occur is very great. On the 2009 (Part Two) page I projected an Israeli air strike would occur in June 2009. This prediction concerns an American attack. If Israel does not bomb Iranian nuclear installations by the end of December 2009, it is increasingly more likely that the United States, with the backing of many other nations, will conduct a massive air campaign against Iran in March 2010. Then again, if Israel does start a war with Iran beforehand, it may not be until March that the US joins in the conflict.

This conflict, if engaged, could deteriorate into yet another, third quagmire like Iraq and Afghanistan, only this "quagmire" will be fought on the high seas of the Persian Gulf and in the air as well as on land. Then again, this could be over in a few weeks or months ... until Russia and Iran band together against the US and the West in August 2011 by imposing a joint naval blockade. Then the naval conflicts and air exchanges will be tremendous.

China Threatens to Invade Taiwan, Attack
US Cities and Naval Vessels

 

China threatens Taiwan and USObama warns China

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/7/08 -- When the Great Comet of 2010 is nearing its closest point to earth, the Chinese dragon will threaten to make its long-awaited move to invade and conquer Taiwan. It will also threaten to attack US and US-allied ships in the region. Beijing will remind America that many of its cities are targeted by its nuclear arsenal should there be any interference in an invasion of Taiwan. North Korea may also make unsettling incursions into South Korean or Japanese air space or territorial waters. Tensions will also be high between China and India at this time. The entire region will be preparing for war while the apparition of the Great Comet of 2010 is coursing through the heavens above.

The base 7 dating for this event is March 2010. As many as 200 or more cities throughout the Pacific will be in danger of attack during this protracted crisis.

 

COMMENTS (2/21/09): North Korea threatening South Korea, North Korea threatening to launch a missile test, and Russia sinking a Chinese cargo ship are pale omens of the troubles I believe will be occurring a year from now in March 2010. Then again, North Korea's threats could even be an early start to the troubles to come.

I will say this much because I have said it time and time before: any prediction involving troubles with China, one must automatically conclude that North Korea will be included in it at some point, and any prediction concerning North Korea, one should automatically consider that China will become involved at some point. In any event, the above prediction indicates this: that troubles with North Korea may be concurrent with any involving China. The two were allies during the Korean War of 1950-53 and they will likely always be allies at a time of war.

One reason I am a bit concerned about events happening now, in 2009, in the Pacific is due to the coming passage of Comet Lulin. Were Lulin to go into outburst and become a very bright comet (which I seriously doubt), then we must re-evaluate events going on in the Korean peninula and between Russia and China near the port of Nakhodka as the early rumblings of potentially premature fulfillments of the above prediction happening one year premature (in 2009 instead of 2010).

I would also have to point out that a dream vision I had back in 2006 could have implicated the US in a war with North Korea in March 2007 or March 2008, and could still in March 2009 ... but only if there is major flooding and tidal activity in the world's oceans and seas and most US and Pacific naval ports.

 

 

COMMENTS (5/20/10): There is absolutely no question in my mind that if South Korea chooses to retaliate against North Korea in a military manner for the sinking of The Cheonan, and shots have already been fired only four days ago, there will be a Second Korean War. Should that occur, I also have little doubt that China will eventually ally with North Korea against South Korea (as it did during the first Korean War of 1950-1953). Then China will not think twice about taking Taiwan by force and attacking US vessels and troops in the Pacific. Chinese and North Korean nuclear attacks on US cities may also be a real possibility. Because North Korea has made an enemy of Japan in the last few years, it is clear that Tokyo will be in the same alliance with South Korea, Taiwan, and the USA. Australia may also be attacked for siding with South Koreans in the investigation.

NORTH KOREA AND CHINA THREATEN US WITH WAR IN THE PACIFIC; NORTH KOREA THREATENS NUCLEAR WAR

 

  China shows military strength ahead of US drill

Tue Jul 20, 2010 1:28pm IST

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has shown off its growing military strength with naval exercises off its eastern coast, shortly before Washington and Seoul are expected to carry out their own drills which Beijing has criticised. State television broadcast images on Tuesday it said showed the East Sea Fleet on recent manoeuvres, including helicopters and a submarine launching a long-range missile underwater. It did not say exactly where or when the pictures were taken and it was not clear if they showed a drill that the official Xinhua news agency said took place over the weekend.

Xinhua said four rescue helicopters and four rescue ships were deployed in the two-day drill in the Yellow Sea, where the United States and South Korea are planning manoeuvres aimed at sending a message of deterrence to North Korea. Beijing has condemned those drills,which many in China feel are also aimed at their country.

Zhu Chenghu, a strategic studies professor at the National Defence University, told the China News Service that the U.S.-South Korean drills were clearly aimed at sending Beijing a message as much as they were directed at North Korea. "They will take place in the Yellow Sea, which is the entry point to China's house, and they obviously want to show off their military strength," he said. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates dismissed concerns on Tuesday, saying the drills were routine ...

China has repeatedly criticised the U.S.-South Korean drills. "We resolutely oppose any activities in the Yellow Sea that may threaten China's security," Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qin Gang told a routine news conference last Thursday. China's growing military clout and rising defence spending have raised concern in Asia, especially in Japan. Taiwan, the self-ruled island China claims as its own, warned this week that its huge neighbour was still aiming missiles at it, despite warming business and trade ties.

North Korea warns of nuclear 'sacred war'

BBC News

23 July 2010 19:32 ET

North Korea says it will use its "nuclear deterrent" in response to joint US-South Korean military exercises this weekend. Pyongyang was ready to launch a "retaliatory sacred war", the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KINA) said, quoting defence officials. Washington and Seoul say the war games are to deter North Korean aggression. Tensions between the two Koreas have been high since the sinking of a South Korean warship in March ...

"All these war manoeuvres are nothing but outright provocations aimed to stifle the Democratic People's Republic of Korea [North Korea] by force of arms," KCNA reported the powerful National Defence Commission as saying. "The army and people of the DPRK will start a retaliatory sacred war of their own style based on nuclear deterrent any time necessary in order to counter the US imperialists and the South Korean puppet forces deliberately pushing the situation to the brink of a war."

The North had already promised a physical response to the military exercises during an Asian regional security forum in Vietnam. North Korea's delegation spokesman at the Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean) Regional Forum (ARF) said the exercises were an example of 19th century "gunboat diplomacy". "It is a threat to the Korean peninsula and the region of Asia as a whole," he said.

North Korea Warns of Nuclear Response to Naval Exercises

Bloomberg

Jul 23, 2010

North Korea said it would counter U.S. and South Korean joint naval exercises with “nuclear deterrence” after the Obama administration said the government in Pyongyang shouldn’t take any provocative steps. North Korea will “legitimately counter with their powerful nuclear deterrence the largest-ever nuclear war exercises to be staged by the U.S. and the South Korean puppet forces,” the National Defense Commission said, according to the Korean Central News Agency.

The maneuvers, which involve 20 vessels and 200 aircraft from the U.S. and South Korea, pose a threat to the country’s sovereignty and security, Ri Tong Il, an official with North Korea’s delegation to the Asean Security Forum, told reporters in Hanoi yesterday. Ri’s comments came after North Korean Foreign Minister Pak Ui Chun sat in the same room with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Hanoi for a security meeting of Asia’s largest powers. Clinton condemned North Korea for being “on a campaign of provocative, dangerous behavior,” urging Kim Jong Il’s regime to change ...

The U.S. said this week it will intensify sanctions against North Korea and conduct military exercises with South Korea in waters surrounding the peninsula. The USS George Washington, a nuclear-powered carrier, and three destroyers called into South Korean ports this week in a show of force.

China ratcheting up regional tension

asahi.com

2010/07/24

In flexing its military muscle commensurate with its growing economic might, Beijing is causing tensions to rise dramatically in the South China Sea. This is partly due to conflicting claims of sovereignty over the Spratley Islands, an area with rich fishing grounds and potentially huge gas and oil deposits, by China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan. Another reason is China's heightened awareness of naval power and its determination to maintain a presence with warships and other vessels in a region that has had its fair share of instability.

Beijing's stance has drawn expressions of concern from a number of countries, most notably the United States, which fears China is bent on trying to deny it access to these waters ...

Tensions are also rising between China and Vietnam in waters around the Paracel group of islands whose sovereignty is also claimed by Taiwan ...

China's interest in a show of force in the South China Sea is in line with Chinese President Hu Jintao's policy for Beijing to "strengthen its awareness of the sea." The policy reflects China's interest in securing natural resources, especially oil, to fuel the energy hungry nation of 1.3 billion people.

For its part, the United States is not sitting back. In early June, U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said in a speech at an annual meeting of defense ministers in Singapore, "We do not take sides on any competing sovereignty claims (in the South China Sea), but we do oppose the use of force and actions that hinder freedom of navigation." He did not mention China, but it was clear that he was criticizing China's activities in the South China Sea.

U.S. experts have advanced a number of theories to explain China's intentions. One is that China is responding to a perception that its interests are threatened by the United States and other countries. Another is that China wants to solve its territorial disputes with shows of force now that its economy is headed to become the world's second biggest after the United States. China recently constructed a base for submarines in Hainan island, which faces the South China Sea. The development prompted some military experts to warn that China is making the South China Sea a "bastion" for nuclear-powered submarines (SSBNs) that can launch ballistic missiles. Vietnam and Singapore are among regional countries that have begun to procure submarines to counter China's naval buildup and assertive activities. The sea lanes that run through the South China Sea are also crucial for Japan and South Korea. For this reason, the United States cannot simply ignore China's expansion of influence.

China, on the other hand, views issues concerning the South China Sea to be deeply rooted in history. As such, it has little sympathy for the U.S. position. "The United States is not a country surrounding the South China Sea. It should not play a leading role in this issue," said Li Guoqiang, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

 

COMMENTS (7/24/10): The threats from both North Korea and China at this point can no longer easily be dismissed as so much bluster. The threats from North Korea are deafening; the warnings from China troubling ... and the US has ceased being so diplomatic about it's own reaction. It is almost as though the United States is INVITING some sort of attack by North Korea, even a nuclear one ... China has demonstrated with its own war games that it is prepared to come to the defence of its Korean ally, as it did in 1950 and 1951, and also is stepping up military presence in the South China Sea ready to protect the Spratley's, the Paracels, and even Taiwan if necessary. We have already seen warnings and threats over the year since the sinking of The Cheonan, and even since last year for that matter, but as one commentator has pointed out, we have now reached a new threshhold where words will likely be backed up by military actions.

The threat of nuclear war as a retaliatory military act can never be taken lightly when there is so much weaponry and preparedness for warfare occurring on all sides in the region. Normally war games are war games and drills are drills ... but this time it can easily become transformed into a nightmarish climax of a longstanding grudge match. This prediction focused initially in November 2008 on China's threat to Taiwan, but was updated a few months later in February 2009 to remind everyone of the strong alliance between China and North Korea ... and make no mistake about it ... if North Korea begins a hot war in the Pacific with the United States and South Korea, China will use the opportunity to forcibly grab its interests by military means, including Taiwan. China, as can be seen, is also preparing for nuclear war with its "bastion" of SSBNs as noted above. Its threats to America on July 20 during its own war games should be regarded with greater angst than those now being made by North Korea. China has the capability of destroying nearly all major US cities.

This is the time of threats I predicted and the kind of threats I said to be worried about. It is four months late, in July 2010, but stems from the March 2010 sinking of The Cheonan.

This threat stage is now a PREDICTION FULFILLED. One can only hope that the next stage is never fulfilled: the United States, perhaps with Russia as an ally, at war with China and North Korea, predicted by me to occur during the period August-October 2010 on 2010 (Part Four).

US President Barack Obama's Historic "Deep Impact" Address
to the Nation and the World

 

President Obama fields questions from reporters after delivering his historic Deep Impact/Planet X address

 

NEW PREDICTION: 7/4/08 -- In all truth, this may instead be a riveting speech concerned with facing the challenges of the New Great Depression and a warning that the spectre of World War III, so narrowly averted in August 2009, might once again return within a few short years if the appropriate steps are not taken to ensure a credible global peace programme. Such a speech may also address the US-Russian signing of joint global policing, new hostile actions by Cuba, Venezuela, and Bolivia, and threats by China to invade Taiwan and use its nuclear forces if necessary.

Unfortunately, as discussed above, an important vector exists for a close encounter with at least one or possibly two comets in March 2010. Planet X panic in the United States will be building. At this time President Barack Obama will decide to stand up and tell the American people and the world the whole truth. He will anger many people in high places doing this and will inevitably pay the ultimate price for doing so.

Once again, as certain other world leaders have done, he shall begin by reassuring the public that the comet or comets they see hurtling towards earth shall pass by harmlessly or, if two comets, impact each other in space (again harmlessly). But that will not be enough in his eyes; his heart will dictate that the people know what other governments are not telling them.

President Obama shall shock America and the world as he becomes the first and only world leader to address the danger posed to earth by Planet X, and identify the time of passage as being December 2011 through February 2012.

Many people who already suspected or knew that the Nibiru controversy was more than a mere internet conspiracy theory will be shocked to discover that the flyby shall occur one year sooner than they had been led to believe.

Obama will inform the public what is known and what is not known, what is being done in an attempt to stop the threat, and of the ways that this flyby can be weathered out and survived by a vast majority of earth's inhabitants. Indeed, contrary to internet rumours, there will be civil assistance available, at least in the United States and certain other countries, including underground shelters in certain cities located in or near regions expected to be hardest hit, medical assistance for the injured, and federal assistance programmes for property damage caused by this flyby.

"I'm not going to raise your hopes too high, but I'm not going to preach doom and gloom either. There is still a lot we don't know about this thing. There is even a chance it may change course, we just don't know. But I am confident that together we can and will weather this storm."

 

Nibiru, brown dwarf star?

 

The president shall also declare all prices and wages to be frozen, urge that the routine of life and work shall and must continue in a normal manner, and that order shall be preserved by police and military force if necessary. Because of the likelihood of a high survivability rate most people will be obedient.

Unfortunately, people will scarcely have the time to breathe a sigh of relief before President Obama soberly informs them that a second flyby of Planet X will occur after it rounds the sun to return to the outer solar system:

"Again, about this second flyby, we know even less. In all honesty you weren't supposed to know about the first passage let alone the possibility of a second one. But I'm told if and when it happens it will be very bad ... it will make the first flyby look like Katrina in comparison. I won't play this down: It may have the potential to destroy up to 2/3 of the world's population ... at that time a shifting of the earth may occur over a period of three days and three nights.

I can't tell you when for certain because the scientific community is so broken up about this thing ... whether the second flyby will even be our problem or a different generation's. I'm hearing all kinds of dates being thrown around for the near term, but it's beginning to sound like sometime in 2013 ... but I am also being told it might not pass us again until December 2044 or even 52 years after it completes its first flyby, which would be sometime in the late winter or spring of 2064."

 

Planet X will become outbound in 2013, 2044, or 2064

 

Obama will outline for the public what is being done to deal with the second flyby should the world's worst fears be realised and Nibiru passes the earth closely on its outbound journey in 2013 rather than 2044 or 2064. References to underground cities will be made and the populations of earth shall be informed these cities can hold only so many. Yes, in some respects this will almost sound like a sound byte directly out of the presidential speech in the 1998 film Deep Impact.

Recommendations will be made concerning known "safe zones" where damage has been calculated to be reasonably light and highly survivable (such as the Great Lakes region of the United States) and also tips for self survival such as investing in geodesic dome houses and the building of home shelters (some of which shall be useless advice unfortunately).

"Remember, together we can get through the first flyby of Planet X ... and the second flyby may not happen for another 32 or even 52 years. Plenty of time enough for our civilisation to prepare for that.

Essentially, though, if it comes back in 2013, during the three days and three nights, you will be on your own. However, until that time, we will maintain an above-the-ground presence. I'm warning you now so that you know: Do not loot, do not riot, do not rape or molest, do not attack or kill your neighbour ... if you become a part of the problem you will be dealt with very harshly. You will be shot on sight, and if there are too many of you wreaking havoc, you will all be sent to special detention camps and disposed of there. There will be no trial nor appeal. To be quite blunt: we do not want people like you to survive.

If Planet X returns in 2013, everything that can be done, will be done. There are things you may never be told we are doing, so never give up hope. When the three days and nights arrive, go into your homes ... go into your homes, seal your doors and windows, and pray to whatever god brings you comfort and peace of mind and spirit. The rest will be in His or Her hands."

The second vector for this or yet another "deep impact" address will arrive in October 2011: two months before the first flyby is due to occur.

 

Could Gliese 710 be the real Planet X??

Have a good look at this star. For astronomers have discovered that it is on course to collide with the outskirts of our solar system with potentially catastrophic consequences. New calculations show that the orange dwarf, called Gliese 710, will crash through the Oort Cloud that surrounds the Sun. The disruption to this shell of many billions of icy fragments would launch a shower of comets into the inner solar system, threatening the planets with devastating impacts.

Scientists claim Gliese 710 is five times the mass of Jupiter and responsible for past mass catastrophes occurring since 26 million years ago.

 

COMMENTS (3/23/10): This is a far cry from a "deep impact" speech by the US president. Yet it may well be the first official admission by Nasa and the US government that a brown dwarf star is headed our way and may wreak considerable havoc with planet earth. Yes, this could well be the start of a series of reports warning humanity that their worst fears concerning Planet X/Nibiru are in fact correct. If so, do not be surprised to see President Barack Obama or, if he is assassinated, presidential successor Joe Biden making this speech after all, although perhaps not until March 2011.

Ancient Comet Passes Earth Harmlessly or
The Garabandal Prophecy Is Fulfilled

 

Mysterious ancient comet passes harmlessly by earth

 

NEW PREDICTION: 7/4/08 -- The great comet passes by the earth harmlessly, just as promised, in late March 2010. It will continue to be seen well into April 2010. Despite assurances by world governments, some rioting and looting will occur, but not on any scale that nations have not seen in the past. For example, in the US, it will be no worse in a few large cities than it was in Los Angeles in 1992 after the Rodney King verdict or in 1967, 1968 and 1970 during racial rioting and campus rioting over the war in Vietnam. Some small amount of force may be required, but nothing close to what would be required during a martial law situation.

However, if two comets, the following scenario will occur in March 2010, fulfilling the first part of The Prophecy of Garabandal known as 'The Warning':

 

The Warning of Garabandal: Two "Stars" Collide

The Warning of Garabandal - Collage and graphics C 2001-2003 by Michael McClellan

Between 1961 and 1965 over 2,000 apparitions of the Virgin Mary appeared at San Sebastian de Garabandal in northwest Spain. Four girls aged eleven and twelve were revealed four warnings in visions concerning the future. The four warnings given were (in order of sequence):

One of the girls, Conchita Gonzalez, described the first supernatural event, The Warning, thus:

 

The Warning is something that is seen in the air, everywhere in the world and is immediately transmitted into the interior of our souls. It will last a very little time, but it will seem a very long time because of its effect within us. It would be like fire. It will not burn our flesh, but we will feel it bodily and interiorly. The Warning appears like two stars -- that crash and make a lot of noise, and a lot of light -- but they don't fall. It's not going to hurt us but we're going to see it and, in that moment, we're going to see our consciences.

 

The Warning sounds very much like two comets (or comet fragments in this case) will appear to be on a collision course with the earth -- or with each other at close proximity to our planet. Whether they explode and disintegrate or impact one another is unclear. Whatever happens it will be at a safe distance from us. But up until that point, humanity will be in great fear and dread of the coming "deep impact." We are tempted to conclude this because, according to Conchita Gonzalez, The Warning will be "a fearful thing." One year later will then come The Miracle and less than a year later a global holocaust called The Chastisement. It is unclear whether conditions of war will already be in progress at the time of the cosmic Warning.

If the Garabandal Warning occurs in 2010, then in early spring 2011 The Miracle will occur, leaving physical evidence of its appearance. What form The Miracle will take we do not know, but in 1971 Conchita did narrow the months down to March, April, or May, insisting that it will not occur in either February or June. That brings us then to a period that bottoms out around November 2011 or a bit later for The Chastisement which will also come from outer space.

So, to summarise: The Warning will be a catastrophe from space that, at the last second, will miraculously terminate far enough away to spare this planet and its inhabitants (we hope). The Chastisement will be a catastrophe from space that will succeed in causing great destruction to earth and its inhabitants. This will likely take the form of Planet X as it reaches it closest point to earth, a large celestial object also known by the ancient names of Nibiru and Marduk and the biblical prophetic name of Wormwood. Both will bring great terror as mankind watches and awaits.

 

COMMENTS (2/21/09): Comet Lulin, were it to go into outburst, could prove to be a marvelous comet to the naked eye. Unfortunately, as 24 February approaches, this appears less and less likely. At the current time it is only a magnitude 5 comet and, as one report puts it, "looking like a tiny fuzzy spot." Believe me, you have no idea how tiny they mean! At the edge of naked eye brightness not only is it too faint to be seen without binoculars or a telescope unless you are at least 20 miles away from the nearest small city, but it will be a mere speck if you do see it.

Then why report it here at all? For one thing, it could go into outburst ... one never knows! If it does, then we must evaluate other events going on at this time differently, because these other events along with Comet Lulin could be premature fulfillments of predictions on this page, happening one year premature (in 2009 instead of 2010).

The other reason, the reason I began posting links here about Comet Lulin, is that I believe it is a dim echo of what may happen next year ... what is predicted on these pages to happen next year. Lulin may be an omen of the Great Comet of 2010 that will appear next March. It is similar in colour to what I suspect that comet will be as well: a greenish-blue. As for the two satellites that collided in space, one US and one Russian, they may also portend the Garabandal Prophecy of the Warning. The satellite collision was an artificial, mechanical version of what could happen next year if two comet fragments should collide in space.

The other events I mentioned are the ones occurring in the Pacific right now: North Korea threatening South Korea, North Korea threatening to launch a missile test, and Russia sinking a Chinese cargo ship. They are pale omens of the troubles I believe will be occurring in March 2010, one of which may be a Chinese attack on Taiwan. Then again, for that matter, North Korea's threats could even be an early start to the troubles to come.

I will say this much because I have said time and time before: any prediction involving troubles with China, automatically figure that North Korea will be included in it at some point, and any prediction concerning North Korea, automatically figure that China will become involved at some point. The two were allies during the Korean War of 1950-53 and they will likely always be allies at a time of war.

I would also have to point out that a dream vision I had back in 2006 could have implicated the US in a war with North Korea in March 2007 or March 2008, and could still in March 2009 ... but only if there is major flooding and tidal activity in the world's oceans and seas and most US and Pacific naval ports.

 

TWO COMETS BLAZE IN THE NIGHT SKY: COMET MCNAUGHT II (C/2009 R1) AND THE RETURNING HAYABUSA SPACECRAFT AND PROBE

 

  New Comet a Stunner -- and Visible to Naked Eye

Space.com

June 09, 2010

A recently discovered comet is surprising skywatchers by becoming brighter than predictions had first suggested and can now be seen with the unaided eye during the next few weeks. Comet McNaught, officially catalogued as C/2009 R1, was discovered by Australian astronomer Robert McNaught last September using the 0.5-meter Uppsala Schmidt telescope and a CCD camera. It's the 51st comet that bears McNaught's name.

Although initially an extremely faint object, enough observations of the newfound comet were made to allow Brian Marsden of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Mass., to calculate an orbit. Comet McNaught is expected to pass closest to the sun (perihelion) on July 2, at a distance of 37 million miles (60 million km).

The comet is visible now for people with dark skies away from urban and suburban lighting. By mid-June it may be an easy skywatching target for most people. Comets brighten when they get nearer to the sun, because solar radiation boils icy particles and dust off the comet's nucleus. A cloud of material called a head, or coma, and sometimes a tail form. It's all illuminated by reflected sunlight.

This recently discovered comet, McNaught C/2009 R1, should not be confused with another dazzling comet to bear McNaught's name – C/2006 P1 McNaught – which also put on a show for skywatchers in 2007 that was so stunning, it earned the moniker "Great Comet of 2007."

In the coming days, the comet is expected to continue to brighten as it gets closer to the sun. If you want to get a view of the comet, you'll have to get up early in the morning. Set your alarm clock for at least two hours before sunrise. For most people that will mean around 3:30 a.m. local time. The comet is currently moving through the constellation of Perseus, the Hero, which at that early hour will be low in the northeast part of the sky. The comet will pass to the south of the second magnitude star, Mirfak around June 14. Both star and comet will be about 20-degrees above the northeast horizon (10-degrees is roughly equal to the width of your clenched fist held at arm's length; so the comet will be about "two fists" up from the horizon). Don't expect anything spectacular just yet, however.

The comet should appear as a dim and diffuse, circular patch of light. Binoculars or a small telescope will help to bring it out better; you might even make out a faint greenish color. From the head of the comet, a narrow tail of gas extends. John Bortle, a well known comet observer, likens McNaught's appearance as resembling an "apple on a stick."

After June 15, Comet McNaught will rapidly slide lower toward the north-northeast horizon, passing very close to the brilliant star Capella in the constellation Auriga around June 22 and a few mornings later very near to the second magnitude star Menkalinan. By then, McNaught will be visible – albeit with some difficulty – both in the evening sky for a short while just after sunset very low above the north-northwest horizon and in the morning sky just before sunrise very low above the north-northeast horizon.

Comets are very unpredictable, but some astronomers say Comet McNaught might reach magnitude +2 by the end of June. If so, it won't rival the brightest stars in the sky, but it should be easy to spot and readily identifiable as a comet.

Look For Comet McNaught C/2009 R1 In The Early Morning

redOrbit

Wednesday, 9 June 2010, 12:45 CDT

Comet McNaught C/2009 R1 will become brighter than first thought and will be visible to the naked eye over the next few weeks. Australian astronomer Robert McNaught discovered the comet last September using the 0.5-meter Uppsala Schmidt telescope and a CCD camera. Enough observations were made of the comet to allow Brian Marsden of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Mass., to calculate its orbit.

Comet McNaught is expected to pass closest to the sun at 37 million miles on July 2. The comet is visible now for people with dark skies away from urban and suburban lightning. It may be an easy skywatching target for most people by mid-June.

Comets brighten as they get closer to the sun because solar radiation boils icy particles and dust off the comet's nucleus. As the comet approaches the sun, amateur and professional astronomers around the globe have been watching with interest as it slowly increased in brightness. The comet was estimated at magnitude +12 when April began. That is about 250 times dimmer than the faintest star that one might see with an unaided eye. However,the cometstarted brightening more rapidly in the days and weeks that followed and it is now bright enough to be seen with the naked eye in a dark, clear sky.

Alexandre Amorium of Florianopolis,Brazil told Space.com that he saw the comet on June 6 by using 10x50 binoculars and estimated the magnitude as +5.5. That is about as bright as the faintest star in the bowl of the little dipper.

The comet is expected to continue to brighten as it gets closer to the sun. The best time for a person to try and catch a glimpse of the comet is about two hours before sunrise. The comet is currently moving through the constellation of Perseus, which will be low in the northeast part of the sky at an early hour. The comet will appear as a dim and diffuse, circular path of light. John Bortle, a well-known comet observer, said McNaught's appearance resembles an "apple on a stick."

"From the few rough magnitude estimates I have seen posted, it would appear that the comet is perhaps a magnitude brighter Treat for sky gazers, comet closest to Earth Tuesday been anticipated, but whether this trend will continue is, as usual, anybody's guess," Bortle told Space.com. Comets are unpredictable, but astronomers believe the comet will reach a magnitude of +2 by the end of June.

Comet McNaught to be present all night long

Current Waves

Mon, 06/14/2010 - 15:42

A comet named McNaught (C/2009 R1) can soon be seen from the face of the earth, as the Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators reported. The comet has a distinct tail which will be visible till the month end and also the comet is approximately 160 million kilometres away from Earth can be seen through naked eyes, as stated by the President, C B Devgun of the Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators.

In further addition to this comes the description that was highlighted by a Consultant at Indian Institute of Astrophysics, R C Kapoor who pictured the comet with a vivid green head and a long wispy tail, can be seen low in the north-eastern sky before dawn in constellation Perseus.

In further addition to this it was added that McNaught will appear brighter as it approaches near Earth that will result in a close encounter which likely is scheduled at June 15th and 16th. The orbit of the comet is defined as hyperbolic, indicating that the present encounter shall be a first and last visit after which the comet shall never return. Therefore it will prove to be a view of a lifetime, said Kapoor.

Bright Green Comet Easy to See This Week

National Geographic Daily News

June 15, 2010

A bright green comet is streaking across early morning skies this week, experts say. Comet McNaught has been steadily gaining brightness and will be most brilliant through June 16, during its closest approach to Earth at about 105 million miles (170 million kilometers) away.

Comet McNaught, already visible to the naked eye as a faint, fuzzy ball low in the northeastern sky, is best seen in the hour before the sun rises, said Anthony Cook, an astronomical observer at Los Angeles's Griffith Observatory. "Because it has a hazy outline, it should be observed from as far away from light pollution as possible," Cook said. "Between now and the 24th of June, it's visible in a moon-free sky, but after the 26th it will be too close to the sun to see."

As the comet nears the sun, its ice melts, releasing gas and dust that stream away into space. This reaction forms a distinctive blue tail of ionized carbon monoxide stretching a million miles (about 1.6 million kilometers) long. Meanwhile, the comet's nucleus is only a few miles across, with a surrounding glowing greenish cloud of gas that is about 250,000 miles (400,000 kilometers) across—roughly the distance from Earth to the moon.

Cook predicts the especially bright Comet McNaught will put on a worthy show for the unaided eye.

Bright Green Comet Streaks Above The UK

Sky News

1:45pm UK, Thursday June 17, 2010

A new bright green comet has become visible in UK skies as it leaves our solar system forever - but blink and you'll miss it.

Comet McNaught, officially catalogued as C/2009 R, has become brighter than expected and skywatchers can now see it with the naked eye. The comet is visible all this week and will be brightest in Britain's skies on June 22. But there's not much time left to catch a glimpse of this unusual sight, which will disappear at the beginning of July.

It was first discovered last September by Australian astronomer Robert McNaught, whose previous comet - nicknamed the Great Comet of 2007 - streaked across the sky in a stunning display.

This comet's green tail looks about the same length as the width of the full moon in the sky when viewed through binoculars but it is in fact 250,000 miles across - roughly the distance from the Earth to the Moon.

 

 

 

Hayabusa spacecraft during re-entry

The Hayabusa spacecraft burns up on re-entry after making history -
becoming the first probe to land on an asteroid and return to Earth.
The spectacular fireball appeared like a bright blue meteor or
comet coursing through the heavens before breaking
up into fragments, followed by the probe which
appeared as a smaller blue comet.

 

COMMENTS (6/15/10): Where did Comet McNaught II come from? A week ago I was checking for comet news with Google search and ... nothing. Indeed, I've been checking for the last several months, and had given up all hope that my prediction would be fulfilled. Usually there is more fanfare than five days advance for a naked eye comet like this one. Yes, it is a green comet, and there is every chance it may reach magnitude +2 (or even brighter) by late June, brightening even more as it nears the Sun on July 2, 2010.

Meantime, as McNaught reached its closest approach to Earth, the Hayabusa spacecraft and probe re-entered the atmosphere as a spectacular blue fireball in the night sky, coursing like a meteor or comet before breaking up into fragments. The probe continued as a smaller blue meteor until it landed and was recovered.

Both events, Comet McNaught remaining visible until at least July 2, 2010, appear during the ongoing crisis over North Korea's sinking of a South Korean naval ship back in March, and a continuing threat by the North of all-out war with South Korea and her allies (including the United States) ... a crisis that could easily pull in China as an ally of Pyongyang. Since Comet McNaught II may continue to brighten until July 2, we should be quite wary of events that will transpire over the next three weeks. Also, not only is it likely that this comet is the one predicted to coincide with a crisis or war involving China and the US (again, North Korea will suffice for reasons I have given many times), but it could also be the dreaded Mabus comet that will herald assassination and World War III.

This is a PREDICTION FULFILLED and IN PROGRESS.

 

MABUS ALERT

North Korean Ambassador Threatens War as Comet McNaught II Grows Brighter and Navy Secretary Ray Mabus is Appointed to Lead Gulf Recovery

Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.62 ~

Mabus will soon die, then will come of people and beasts a horrible undoing: Then all too suddenly the vengeance is revealed,
a hundred, hand, thirst, hunger, when the comet shall run.

North Korean ambassador to the UN Sin Son Ho Comet McNaught II (C/2009 R1) Secretary of the US Navy Raymond Mabus

June 16, 2010: North Korea on Tuesday rejected international findings that it sank a South Korean ship, warning at the United Nations the dispute could lead to war. "A war may break out any time," Ambassador Sin Son Ho said, accusing South Korea of "fabricating" the results of the investigation into the sinking of the Cheonan. "If the Security Council releases any documents against us, condemning or pressuring us, then myself as diplomat ... I can do nothing. The follow-up measures will be carried out by our military forces," he said.

The largest comet ever recorded, and a very ancient visitor, now courses through the northeastern sky near the constellation Perseus. At this time, astronomers are telling us it will grow brighter until the end of June, but will then become more difficult to see as it moves towards the horizon on July 2. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has been catapulted into international prominence by President Obama during a televised speech Tuesday night concerning the ever-widening oil spill and environmental crisis in the Gulf of Mexico. His mission: to help draw up the government's plan for recovery efforts in conjunction with officials in the Gulf Coast states. This means if war breaks out on the Korean peninsula, we shall likely be seeing Seceretary Mabus suddenly drawing media attention as he is reassigned to the Pacific theatre of war.

Australia Mobilises Forces for Possible War Against China

 

Australia mobilises forces for possible war against China

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/14/08 -- Australia will waste no time in preparing for war with China in March 2010, even if the crisis is all talk and war games. Something will seem darker and more unsettling than past crises of this kind and the Australians will be well aware that if things suddenly get hot in the Pacific their presence will be needed especially at sea by America, South Korea, and Japan. With Muslim fanaticism causing more acts of terrorism in neighbouring Indonesia and the Philippines, keeping China contained to the northern Pacific will be a top priority.

Worst Train Crash in UK History

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/08, PRESENTATION POSTED: 12/17/09 -- There is little to say; the tittle pretty much says it all. The danger of this occurring becomes of greatest concern about March 2010.

 

 

COMMENTS (2/16/10): This is as close to England as you can get without being in the UK. Belgium and the Netherlands are its very close neighbours to the east, Brussels and London less than 200 miles apart. This accident is being depicted as a "horror" and a "nightmare" ... and, as the prediction says, is now considered the worst railway accident in the history of Belgium. It is very close, including geographically-speaking, as well as nearly spot on timewise and event-wise. Unless the UK itself has its worst train crash in history this year, especially in the next few months, I believe this is likely the event that was projected, only slightly off in location. Thus, this is a CLOSE PREDICTION.

COMMENTS (1/29/10): This is a major ecological disaster at sea ... an oil spill, as predicted. Wildlife is threatened. This occurs two months earlier than projected.

Oil slick spreads from sunken rig

April 22, 2010 -- Updated 2211 GMT (0611 HKT)

(CNN) -- A 1-by-5-mile sheen of crude oil mix has spread across the Gulf of Mexico's surface around the area where an oil rig exploded and sank, a Coast Guard lieutenant said Thursday. "This is a rainbow sheen with a dark center," Coast Guard Rear Adm. Mary Landry told reporters Thursday afternoon. Officials do not know whether oil or fuel are leaking form the sunken Deepwater Horizon rig and the well below, but BP Vice President David Rainey said "it certainly has the potential to be a major spill." BP PLC operates the license on which the rig was drilling. A remotely-operated vehicle is surveying the area and cleanup efforts are already under way, Landry said. The sheen "probably is residual from the fire and the activity that was going on on this rig before it sank below the surface," she said.

Meanwhile, the Coast Guard continued to search for 11 people missing after an explosion late Tuesday set the rig ablaze forcing workers to be evacuated from the vessel. Officials are still unsure what caused the blast. "We do continue with search and rescue," Landry said. "As time passes, however, the probability of success in locating the 11 missing persons decreases."

Adrian Rose, a vice president for rig owner Transocean Ltd, told reporters that the missing workers may not have been able to get off the rig. "Based upon our reports from crew workers we met as they came in last night, they believe that they [the missing workers] may have been on board the rig and not able to evacuate. We have not confirmed that yet," he said. The company is still investigating the incident, but Rose said conversations with evacuated workers when they arrived onshore revealed "really quite heroic stories of how people looked after each other."

The mobile rig was about 52 miles southeast of Venice, Louisiana, when the explosion occurred Tuesday night. There were no indications it was a terrorist incident, the Coast Guard said. Officials said 126 people were on board at the time of the explosion. Of the 115 accounted-for workers, 17 injured were evacuated by helicopter from the rig. Another 94 people were taken to shore with no major injuries, and four more were transferred to another vessel, according to the Coast Guard.

It was not known whether the missing workers were able to make it to one of the rig's lifeboats -- fully enclosed, fire-resistant vessels designed to evacuate people quickly. The Coast Guard said calm weather conditions and warm Gulf waters increase the likelihood of survival for the missing workers. "We're still searching and there's still a probability that those crew members are alive," Senior Chief Petty Officer Michael O'Berry told CNN on Thursday afternoon. Carrol Moss told CNN-affiliate WWL that her husband had been rescued from the rig. But before she got the call, there were some anxious moments, she said. "The only thing I was thinking is how am I going to tell my kids that their dad is not coming home," Moss told the affiliate. "The worst goes through your mind. We were just blessed we got the call."

The rig involved in the explosion -- a mobile unit which moves to different locations in the Gulf of Mexico -- had been drilling for oil in its current location since January, said Eileen Angelico, a spokeswoman for Minerals Management Service, the agency that regulates the oil industry in federal waters. BP spokesman Mueller said dozens of vessels and aircraft were on the way to the scene Thursday afternoon, including equipment to minimize the environmental impact of any spilled oil. "This is the kind of thing we drill for every year and plan for it, but hope we never have to use it. Today is the day we are going to use it. We are prepared and are moving," he said.

Up to 336,000 gallons could spill into the Gulf, based on the amount of oil the rig pulled out daily, O'Berry told CNN. And up to 700,000 gallons of diesel fuel could also leak, Coast Guard Petty Officer Ashley Butler said. As cleanup efforts ramped up, government and company officials said they planned to get to the bottom of what caused the explosion. "It's in our national interest, obviously, to know exactly what went wrong and to make sure something like this never happens again," Deputy Secretary of the Interior David J. Hayes told reporters Thursday afternoon.

COMMENTS (4/24/10): When this story first broke, despite the sensational nature of the explosion, it was not believed that this disaster would pose an environmental threat at sea. However, as the video points out so well, that has all changed dramatically with the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon. This is much, much worse than what happened in January, yet technically that incident can hardly be dismissed either. Even if this massive explosion had not occurred, the collision at Port Arthur and resulting oil spill by itself would have adequately fulfilled this prediction. It is infrequent enough that events of this sort occur: one thinks of the Exxon Valdez and a few other major disasters, but they don't tend to happen more than once or twice a decade, if that. Now we have had two events, in a three-month period ... but this one really looks like it is going to be one for the history books, folks. I can only say, once again ... PREDICTION FULFILLED ... and how!

 

 

COMMENTS (4/30/10): I mentioned the Exxon Valdez above. The Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster is now being compared to that of the Exxon Valdez, many now believing that it will become much worse than that historical oil spill. Never before has there been an environmental threat of this magnitude:

 

A boat uses a protective boom to collect oil leaking from the Deepwater Horizon wellhead in the Gulf of Mexico. A giant oil slick threatened Thursday to pollute the fragile wetlands of Louisiana, as officials warned that toxic crude was pouring into the Gulf of Mexico five times faster than previously thought.  (AFP/Getty Images/Chris Graythen) The oil leak triggered by a deadly rig blast off the coast of Louisiana has the potential to cause more environmental damage than the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill, one of the largest ecological disasters ever recorded, some observers say.

"As it is now, it's already looking like this could be the worst oil spill since the Valdez," John Hocevar, oceans campaign director for Greenpeace USA, told msnbc.com on Thursday.

"It’s quite possible this will end up being worse than the Valdez in terms of environmental impact since it seems like BP will be unable to cap the spill for months. In terms of total quantity of oil released, it seems this will probably fall short of Exxon Valdez. But because of the habitat, the environmental impact will be worse."

"Probably the only thing comparable to this is the Kuwait fires [following the Gulf War in 1991]," Mike Miller, head of Canadian oil well fire-fighting company Safety Boss, told the BBC World Service.

"The Exxon Valdez is going to pale in comparison to this as it goes on."

 

 

Obama chooses Navy secretary MABUS to lead Gulf recovery efforts

June 16, 2010 -- Updated 0634 GMT (1434 HKT)Secretary of the US Navy Raymond Mabus

(CNN) -- Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, who will develop a long-term plan for the restoration of the states affected by the massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, is a former governor of Mississippi whom the White House has called a proven leader. The 61-year-old Mabus was selected by President Obama on Tuesday to help draw up the government's plan for recovery efforts in conjunction with officials in the Gulf Coast states. "The plan will be designed by states, local communities, tribes, fishermen, businesses, conservationists, and other Gulf residents. And BP will pay for the impact this spill has had on the region," Obama said in a nationwide address from the Oval Office.

Last year when Mabus was selected to lead the Navy, the Obama administration released a statement that said: "The president nominated Governor Mabus to be secretary of the Navy because he has the proven leadership and experience our nation needs to serve in this important position."

Mabus was born and raised in Mississippi, attending college at the University of Mississippi.

He was defeated in his re-election bid by Kirk Fordice. In 1994, Mabus was appointed by then-President Bill Clinton as the ambassador to Saudi Arabia where he served for two years before returning to Mississippi to become a businessman.

 

NEW OIL CATASTROPHE IN YELLOW SEA

Blast hit oil pipeline in NE China

Xinhua News Agency

2010-07-16 22:43:38

DALIAN, Liaoning, July 16 (Xinhua) -- Blasts hit two oil pipelines in Dalian, a port city in northeast China's Liaoning Province, Friday. An explosion first hit a 0.9 meter-diameter oil pipeline at about 6 p.m. and triggered an adjacent smaller pipeline to explode near Dalian Xingang Harbor.

Both pipelines, owned by China National Petroleum Corp.(CNPC), caught fire and more than 400 firefighters and 110 fire engines are working at the site.

Blaze of the larger pipeline has been extinguished by 11:30 p.m. but more than 200 meters of the smaller one is still on fire as firefighters failed to turn off its oil pump.

The government is sending special jets to transport fire foam for the campaign. An oil tank that was unloading oil in the harbor when the blast broke out had left the scene unharmed. The pipelines were links between oil ships and land tankers. Local authorities are investigating the incident.

Chinese oil pipeline explodes

Telegraph

10:02AM BST 17 Jul 2010

More than 2,000 firefighters worked overnight to control flames and further blasts on a second pipeline after the initial explosion. China Central Television showed flames raging among tanks at the port in the northern city of Dalian, and state media described flames 30 meters high.

The cause of the initial blast was not clear. The Xinhua News Agency said it happened after a tanker uploaded oil at the port. China National Radio said officials were considering the evacuation of about 600 homes nearby.

The pipelines are owned by China National Petroleum Corp., which is Asia's biggest oil and gas producer by volume. Dalian's secretary general Xu Guochen told a news conference on Saturday morning that firefighters had turned off the valves on all oil tanks at the site.

Xu said the flames gave off gas containing sulphur and aromatic hydrocarbons that were not fatally toxic, but environmental protection officials told China National Radio that the scene remained unsafe because of chemicals in the air.

Large China oil spill threatens sea life, water

The Associated Press

Wed Jul 21, 6:47 pm ET

BEIJING – China's largest reported oil spill emptied beaches along the Yellow Sea as its size doubled Wednesday, while cleanup efforts included straw mats and frazzled workers with little more than rubber gloves. An official warned the spill posed a "severe threat" to sea life and water quality as China's latest environmental crisis spread off the shores of Dalian, once named China's most livable city. One cleanup worker has drowned, his body coated in crude.

"I've been to a few bays today and discovered they were almost entirely covered with dark oil," said Zhong Yu with environmental group Greenpeace China, who spent the day on a boat inspecting the spill. "The oil is half-solid and half liquid and is as sticky as asphalt," she told The Associated Press by telephone.

The oil had spread over 165 square miles (430 square kilometers) of water five days since a pipeline at the busy northeastern port exploded, hurting oil shipments from part of China's strategic oil reserves to the rest of the country. Shipments remained reduced Wednesday.

State media has said no more oil is leaking into the sea, but the total amount of oil spilled is not yet clear.

Greenpeace China released photos Wednesday of inky beaches and of straw mats about 2 square meters (21 square feet) in size scattered on the sea, meant to absorb the oil. Fishing in the waters around Dalian has been banned through the end of August, the state-run Xinhua News Agency reported. "The oil spill will pose a severe threat to marine animals, and water quality, and the sea birds," Huang Yong, deputy bureau chief for the city's Maritime Safety Administration, told Dragon TV. At least one person died during cleanup efforts. A 25-year-old firefighter, Zhang Liang, drowned Tuesday when a wave threw him from a vessel, Xinhua reported.

Officials, oil company workers and volunteers were turning out by the hundreds to clean blackened beaches. "We don't have proper oil cleanup materials, so our workers are wearing rubber gloves and using chopsticks," an official with the Jinshitan Golden Beach Administration Committee told the Beijing Youth Daily newspaper, in apparent exasperation. "This kind of inefficiency means the oil will keep coming to shore ... This stretch of oil is really difficult to clean up in the short term."

But 40 oil-skimming boats and about 800 fishing boats were also deployed to clean up the spill, and Xinhua said more than 15 kilometers (9 miles) of oil barriers had been set up to keep the slick from spreading.China Central Television earlier reported an estimate of 1,500 tons of oil has spilled. That would amount roughly to 400,000 gallons (1,500,000 liters) — as compared with 94 million to 184 million gallons in the BP oil spill off the U.S. coast. China's State Oceanic Administration released the latest size of the contaminated area in a statement Tuesday.

The cause of the explosion that started the spill was still not clear. The pipeline is owned by China National Petroleum Corp., Asia's biggest oil and gas producer by volume. Friday's images of 100-foot-high (30-meter-high) flames at China's second largest port for crude oil imports drew the immediate attention of President Hu Jintao and other top leaders. Now the challenge is cleaning up the greasy plume. "Our priority is to collect the spilled oil within five days to reduce the possibility of contaminating international waters," Dalian's vice mayor, Dai Yulin, told Xinhua on Tuesday.

But an official with the State Oceanic Administration has warned the spill will be difficult to clean up even in twice that amount of time. Some locals said the area's economy was already hurting. "Let's wait and see how well they deal with the oil until Sept. 1, if the oil can't be cleaned up by then, the seafood products will all be ruined," an unnamed fisherman told Dragon TV. "No one will buy them in the market because of the smell of the oil."

COMMENTS (7/23/10): This oil spill in the Yellow Sea may appear to be a dwarf compared to the one in the Gulf of Mexico, but the environmental impact is already sizable. Humans have already died and the marine life is now threatened. You can imagine too that the Chinese media will play the scope of this down, so it is probably worse than what is being reported. Imagine if this sort of thing kept happening worldwide every few months ... we would reach a point where the biblical warning of 1/3 of the seas and oceans turning to blood and destroying all life within them or dependent upon them could become a reality by the end of next year.

Johnson & Johnson heiress Casey Johnson dies in suspected drugs overdose

Daily Mail

6 January 2010

Casey Johnson was reportedly into B&DAn heiress to one of the largest business empires in the world has died of a suspected drug overdose. The body of Casey Johnson, 30, daughter of billionaire Woody Johnson, was found at her Los Angeles home. The socialite, a former classmate of Paris Hilton, was heiress to Johnson & Johnson, the pharmaceuticals and toiletries company worth $178 billion (£110 billion).

Friends posting on social networking sites voiced fears that she died of drugs. Ms Johnson was known to have a history of drug abuse, and reports in the US suggest she may have been dead for a number of days before her body was discovered yesterday. Los Angeles police spokeswomen Sara Faden said officers were called to her home at 11.51am, where paramedics had already pronounced her dead. “It appears to be a natural death,” she added. “There's no evidence of foul play. A toxicology report from the coroner's office will proceed next.”

Ms Johnson was the girlfriend of Tila Tequila, a bisexual reality TV star best known for MTV series A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila. They announced they were engaged last month. On her Twitter page, Tequila wrote: “Every-one please pray 4 my Wifey Casey Johnson. She has passed away. Thank u for all ur love and support.” US website TMZ.com claimed Tequila contacted it to say the couple had been fighting last week and she had not been able to contact Ms Johnson since 29 December.

The heiress was a regular on Twitter, but had not posted since that date. On Christmas Day she had written: “I was VERY lucky this year. I found my soulmate. I got her for Christmas. Best gift ever.” Her friends from the Hollywood social scene also paid their respects on Twitter.

Lindsay Lohan wrote: “r.I.p. To a friend — Casey Johnson.” Ms Lohan's ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson responded: “Am so sick of those 3 letters [RIP], so tired of losing friends to something as senseless as a drug overdose. WAKE UP people.” Paris Hilton wrote: “I feel so sad right now, my heart is in pain. Just lost a longtime friend. My heart goes out to her family.”

Ms Johnson was the daughter of New York Jets owner Robert “Woody” Johnson, and great-great-granddaughter of Robert Wood Johnson, who co-founded the family firm. Among its products are Band Aid, the Johnson's baby range, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear facial wash and Acuvue contact lenses ...

Casey Johnson 911 Call Released: ‘She’s Ice Cold’

Access Hollywood

January 8, 2010 4:47 PM EST

Casey Johnson's body was blue and ice cold when foundLOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The 911 call has been released which alerted authorities to the death of socialite Casey Johnson. In the call, from January 4, an unidentified woman asks a 911 operator to send someone to her Los Angeles property after finding the heiress’ body.

“The emergency is I have somebody who I believe has just died in my guest house. So I need somebody right away,” the woman tells the operator. “What do you need from me?”

Although Casey is not mentioned by name during the call, the woman describes her as 30 and female and she tells the operator she believes the young woman is definitely deceased.

“You think she’s passed away?” the 911 operator asks. “I’m pretty sure. She’s ice cold and her hands are turning blue,” the caller answers. “I have two other people here with me and we all think she’s dead.”

Another operator asks the woman why she thinks the death is a suicide. “I don’t know if it was a suicide,” the woman replies. “Very often her medication gets all screwed up, so it’s probably because of that.”

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Johnson’s body was discovered on Monday in Los Angeles. An autopsy was performed on the body of the Johnson & Johnson heiress, the daughter of Jets owner Woody Johnson, but the Los Angeles Coroner’s office has delayed releasing the cause of death pending toxicology reports. They are expected to release the cause within 6-8 weeks, but it could take longer ...

 

 

COMMENTS (1/30/10): Casey Johnson was not British, but she was a famous heiress to the multi-billion dollar Johnson & Johnson empire ("one of the largest business empires in the world") ... and a good friend of heiress Paris Hilton (also implicated in the prediction as an alternative victim). Missing for several days, she was not found hanged, but was likely found asphyxiated ("strangled") as a result of her drugs overdose. Then again, who can say how the body was found, so much has obviously been covered up? At the very least, I must consider this a CLOSE PREDICTION. It also remains to be seen if a British heiress ends up kidnapped and murdered this year. But if not, this event more than qualifies due to its magnitude.

 

  British heiress found dead after suspected overdose

British heiress Robyn Whitehead, 27, was found dead from a drugs overdose at the apartment of rock musician Pete Doherty

ninemsn | 09:02 AEST Thu Jan 28 2010

A young British heiress has been found dead after a suspected drug overdose. The body of Robyn Whitehead, a film-maker who directed a documentary on musician Pete Doherty and his band The Libertines, was discovered at a unit in Hackney, east London, the Daily Mail reports. The 27-year-old's death is not being treated as suspicious, police said.

Whitehead is the granddaughter of the late Teddy Goldsmith, whose billionaire brother Sir James Goldsmith founded The Ecologist magazine and the Ecology Party, which became the Green Party. Police were called to the flat at 8:10pm on Monday local time, after an emergency call was made to the ambulance service. The young socialite did not live at the home where her body was found.

Whitehead's mother Dido Whitehead was reported as being too upset to speak to the British press, but a maid denied to the Evening Standard the death was drug-related. “No one really knows what happened," the woman, who declined to be named, said. Police said Whitehead's next of kin had been informed of her death and an autopsy would be conducted.

Goldsmith heiress, 27, who made Pete Doherty film, dies from 'drugs overdose'

Daily Mail

4:31 PM on 28th January 2010

Pete Doherty today expressed his shock after the death of a member of the fabulously rich Goldsmith dynasty of a suspected drug overdose who had become his friend. Robyn Whitehead had spent her last ten days filming a documentary about the drug-addict singer. Her body was discovered at an East London flat rented by his close friend Pete Wolfe.

Miss Whitehead, a 27-year-old photographer and filmmaker, was the granddaughter of Teddy Goldsmith, founder of The Ecologist magazine. She had been working closely with Doherty on the film about the controversial figure notorious for his decadent lifestyle and relationship with supermodel Kate Moss.

Today, a spokesman for the singer said: 'Peter Doherty was shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic death of Robyn Whitehead. 'Peter wishes to convey his condolences to Robyn's family and her close friends at this very difficult time.'

Her death comes weeks after the family of actor Mark Blanco, who fell to his death after a row with Doherty at a party, claimed they had 'significant new evidence' to prove he was unlawfully killed. Rock musician Doherty, who was in court on drug charges yesterday, was with Robyn at the flat the night before she died, said friends, although his spokesman denied this.

Paramedics answering a 999 call found her body in the £180,000 property on Sunday night. Drugs paraphernalia is understood to have been found in the flat and Scotland Yard say her death is not being treated as suspicious. But Doherty is expected to be questioned by a coroner when an inquest is held and could face police inquiries about how the drugs were obtained.

Doherty's friend and music collaborator Wolfe - known as the Wolfman - and his girlfriend are understood to have been in the flat when paramedics arrived. A source close to Robyn's family said last night: 'She had been working very closely with Pete Doherty and Pete Wolfe over the past ten days finishing another film. She was absolutely exhausted. 'The last scenes that she was filming included living inside the Doherty world.'

Robyn's mother is Dido Whitehead, cousin of Jemima Khan and Zac Goldsmith, and her father is Sixties film-maker Peter Whitehead, whose former girlfriends included Bianca Jagger. She was also the great-niece of billionaire financier Sir James Goldsmith.

An ambulance was called at 6pm on Sunday to the flat where Robyn, one of four sisters, was found dead. Doherty had been at the property the previous evening and Robyn went to bed at 5am on Sunday. She had been due at a studio at 3pm that afternoon for more film work. When the studio cancelled, the couple in the flat with her apparently let her carry on sleeping but called 999 later that afternoon. As the tragic death emerged yesterday, Doherty was avoiding a prison sentence yet again, this time for entering a crown court with 13 doses of heroin 'after forgetting to check his pockets' before attending the hearing. Asked about Miss Whitehead's death outside Gloucester Magistrates' Court yesterday, Doherty claimed to know nothing about it ...

Goldsmith granddaughter Robyn Whitehead 'dies in drug overdose'

Times Online | January 28, 2010

A young member of the Goldsmith family who made a film about the pop star and heroin addict Pete Doherty has been found dead of a suspected drugs overdose. Robyn Whitehead, 27, the granddaughter of Teddy Goldsmith, the founder of The Ecologist magazine and brother of the billionaire Sir James Goldsmith, was found in a block of flats in Homerton, East London, after an emergency call to the Ambulance Service.

Police said that they were called to an address at 8.10pm on Sunday and that the death was not being treated as suspicious. It is understood that drugs paraphernalia was found at the flat, which was believed to have been rented by a friend of Doherty. A man and woman who were there when police arrived were questioned but not arrested. An inquest into Miss Whitehead’s death was opened and adjourned yesterday ...

 

 

COMMENTS (1/31/10): This is the "abducted" British heiress, found dead of a drugs overdose. Police are inquiring into potential foul play despite the report "that the death was not being treated as suspicious." The heiress and socialite had been at the residence of rock star and drug addict Pete Doherty for the last ten days, reportedly in a state of exhaustion according to some witnesses. A CCTV video shows an unidentified blonde haired woman pacing outside the flat at the time of Whitehead's death. Doherty had earlier been heard arguing with the heiress about her film. Doherty also has a reputation of forcing hard drugs like heroin into women when they are unconsious or incapacitated. None of the statements by Doherty or the the other four people staying at the flat, including rocker Wolfe, match or add up. Wolfe, for example, said he found Whitehead's body, called 911, and then went back to sleep. What was going on in this place?? How did Robyn Whithead actually die? In any event, this is a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

NEW PREDICTION: 10/13/08 -- Muqtada al-Sadr becomes supreme ayatollah and leader of Iraq after Sunni central Iraq is overwhelmed and conquered by the southern Shi'a with the covert support of the Iranian government in March/April 2010 or June-August 2011. Thousands of Sunni Muslims, Iraqi Christians, American businessmen, and other foreigners are airlifted by US forces evacuating Iraq. It is possible that northern Iraq will be handed over to the Kurds at this point, but I am uncertain of that.

In Iraq, a popular cleric cranks up anti-U.S. rhetoric (excerpts)

January 8, 2011 -- Updated 1708 GMT (0108 HKT)

(CNN) Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, the anti-American political figure who returned to Iraq this week from self-imposed exile, told tens of thousands of his followers Saturday to "resist" and "disturb" the United States. "We have not forgotten the occupier. We remain a resistance," said al-Sadr, delivering a fiery speech in the holy Shiite city of Najaf, his first public address in Iraq in years. "We continue to resist the occupier militarily, culturally and by all means of the resistance." Al-Sadr, who spent more than three years in self-imposed exile in the predominantly Shiite Iran, took to the podium amid tight security.

As he exhorted Iraqis to unite and end the infighting that has plagued the ethnically and religiously mixed country, the crowd chanted "No, no to America" and "No, no to the occupier," waved Iraqi flags, and carried the portraits of al-Sadr and other Shiite figures. "Whatever struggle happened between brothers, let us forget about it and turn the page forever and live united," al-Sadr said. "We do not kill an Iraqi." But he reminded the crowd that "our main goal as Iraqi people is to drive the occupation out in any way."

While American officials have publicly welcomed al-Sadr's active participation in the government they also have voiced concern about them resorting to violence. "Our concerns with the Sadrists is not so much their political philosophy; there are many political groups with political philosophies of many different flavors. Our concern with them is the fact that we do not see compelling evidence that they have renounced in practice and in theory the idea that they can use armed force against their opponents," U.S. Ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey told reporters in a recent briefing.

 

 

Inclusion is Iraq’s route to peace

FT.com

April 5 2010 17:40

In spite of marked security gains, violence is never far away in Iraq. Yet over the weekend an attack occurred that was as shocking as any for some time – an assault that recalled the killings in 2006 and 2007, which almost sank the country into all-out civil war. Men wearing military uniforms descended on an Arab Sunni village south of Baghdad and moved from house to house, handcuffing residents before shooting. The victims included five women and 19 men. It is unclear who was responsible, but such a chilling attack at a time when post-election political wrangling has raised tensions in the fragile nation will no doubt add to people’s fear about what their future holds. Then, on Sunday, three car bombs killed at least 41 people in Baghdad.

With no one close to a majority in the 325-member parliament, horse-trading has intensified to form alliances that would enable a bloc to lead the next government. With numerous options possible, the Sadrist movement of Moqtada al-Sadr, the radical cleric, and the Islamic Supreme Council in Iraq, both prominent Shia parties, could play the role of kingmakers. There is also talk of Iran’s influence and its potential to try to push the Shia parties to forge an alliance that would sideline Iyad Allawi's secular Iraqiya. He, meanwhile, is warning that such a move would create a “serious backlash”.

The clear message from Sunnis before the vote was that they expected change – meaning an end to the political domination of Shia Islamists. They would probably react to any such government with anger. It would also sorely test their faith in the political process. In an environment still blighted by violence, and where conspiracy theories run wild, that would be a dangerous outcome.

Al-Sadr flexes muscles in Iraqi political jockeying

April 1, 2010 -- Updated 1857 GMT (0257 HKT)

Baghdad, Iraq (CNN) -- Muqtada al-Sadr, the firebrand cleric wiith a loyal following among the Shiite population in Iraq, could play a major role in the formation of a new national government. Al-Sadr has refused to back the top vote-getters in the March 7 election and is asking his followers to designate a prime minister of their choosing in a referendum this weekend. This is the latest political jockeying in the aftermath of the election for the 325-member parliament. Al-Sadr's party, which gained at least 39 seats in the voting, is part of the Iraqi National Alliance, the Shiite bloc that received 70 seats. Al-Sadr is holding a referendum at various locations on Friday and Saturday on the prime minister question. Al-Maliki, Allawi and three other names will be presented. The results of the referendum could be a factor in determining whether al-Sadr's faction and/or the Iraqi National Alliance back Allawi or al-Maliki.

Pro-Iran factions gain ground in Iraq elections

Geostrategy-Direct.com

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Western analysts said pro-Iranian factions have made significant gains in parliamentary elections on March 7. They said a leading faction believed financed by Teheran, the Iraqi National Alliance, which included Shi'ite cleric Moqtada Sadr, could decide the formation of the next government in Baghdad. "The Sadrists there are continuing to do well and in fact have improved their position somewhat," Reidar Visser, an American historian and a leading analyst on Iraq's elections, said. Analysts said INA has become the third largest party in parliament and would determine the next government.

They said the anti-U.S. Sadr faction in INA, led by the older Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council, could win 40 out of 73 votes in the bloc. During the elections, Sadr vowed to bolster Iraqi nationalism and enact reforms. "The Sadrists exhibit the whole spectrum from pro-Iranian to anti-Iranian, and the former will do their utmost to hold on to a pan-Shiite alliance," Visser said in a briefing with bloggers on March 22. Sadr has also led the Iranian-backed Mahdi Army, regarded as one of the largest of the Shi'ite militias. In 2008, the government of Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki ordered an offensive against Mahdi Army in Baghdad and Basra. "Our effect on the formation of the new government will be obvious," Sadr bloc parliamentary candidate Hakim Al Zamili said. During the campaign, Sadr promised to accelerate the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. Sadr has become a leading rival of Al Maliki and was likely to support challenger Iyad Alawi, a former prime minister.

 

COMMENTS (4/6/10): One should not overlook the second base 7 vector for this prediction to reach full resolution: June-August 2011. It is, at this time at least, that the first part of the prediction, the rise of Muqtada al-Sadr to dominance in Iraq, appears to be in the process of being fulfilled. Thus, this may soon be a prediction partially fulfilled.

 

Debris litters the ground at the site of an explosion near the Iranian Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, on Sunday. There were three explosions in central Baghdad within five minutes of each other. Muqtada al-Sadr, seen in Istanbul, Turkey, in May 2009, is back in the spotlight in Iraqi politics.

Al-Sadr, and his Shi'a allies in neighbouring Iran, have been thrust into the role of kingmakers during the Iraqi elections. This as horrific attacks against Sunnis have played out over the weekend. Although Iraqi al-Qaeda is the usual suspect, many believe this was the work of those loyal to al-Sadr.

Horrendous Cruise Ship Catastrophe At Sea

 

An explosion aboard the Oasis of the Sea

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/3/09 -- One of the world's largest cruise ships, quite likely the recently-launched Oasis of the Seas, will sink in one of the worst accidental disasters-at-sea of the century in April 2010. Like the Titanic Disaster of 1912, it may crash into an iceberg (or perhaps another ship), or be gutted by a fire that breaks out onboard. Between 5,000 and 6,000 of the roughly 8,400 passengers and crew members that will be aboard will die, most by drowning, exposure, or by being eaten by sharks. If a fire is the cause, this will create many other deaths as well. However, in this age of terrorism and piracy, one cannot rule out a bombing or other such attack.

I would not even rule out it being taken by pirates, the passengers robbed, raped, held hostage, terrorised, and murdered, and the ship scuttled. We now must take piracy on the high seas seriously once again as in the days of old.

 

FINALLY ... ANOTHER TITANIC (OR WHAT IT IS BEING COMPARING TO) ... BUT WHY 21 MONTHS LATE ????????

  Cruise tragedy conjures memories of doomed Titanic

Jan 16 2012 02:34PM EST

TAMARA LUSH, Associated Press

Concordia's grounding should serve as wake-up call to shipping industry

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The first interviews of survivors — and the first impressions of people across the world — of the ill-fated Costa Concordia cruise liner that ran aground and tipped over in Italy are yielding predictable comparisons to another tragedy. "Have you seen 'Titanic'? That's exactly what it was," said Valeria Ananias, a 31-year-old Los Angeles schoolteacher aboard the ship who crawled along nearly vertical hallways and stairwells in a desperate attempt to reach rescue boats.

Are such comparisons to a 100-year-old tragedy fair? Accurate? It seems that the world views the Concordia through a prism of fact, myth and fantasy that surrounds the Titanic, largely because of the popular movie that came out in 1997 and is being re-released in 3D this year.

Just ask the handful of people visiting "Titanic the Experience," a tour through recovered artifacts and replicas of the famed ship in Orlando.

"When I saw the Concordia on the news this morning, this is what I thought about," said Tom Keill, a Pennsylvania tourist who took the Titanic tour Sunday morning. He and his family shuffled past rooms that recreated first-class cabins, past the lavish replica staircase, past an actual deck chair that once sat on the vessel. (The restrooms in the museum are described by staff as being "through the gift shop, behind the wall and past the iceberg.")

Keill, like virtually everyone who has seen the movie, has thought about what they would have done during such a disaster — and now the Concordia allows us to update and refresh those thoughts. The vessel hit a reef or rock just off the coast of Italy, leaving five people dead and sending hundreds more searching for a way to escape as the boat tipped. Authorities said 15 people remain unaccounted for.

"It looked like it was sheer panic on the Concordia," said Keill, whose two young sons are "really into" Titanic history, which is why the family visited the exhibit while on vacation.

His son, 6-year-old Tyler Keill, was a bit more philosophical after walking past a piece of the Titanic's hull and a large piece of white frost meant to replicate the iceberg that the Titanic struck. "It's really sad that the Titanic is history," Tyler said to his mom while in the gift shop that sells Titanic replica china, jewelry and 100th anniversary mugs. "But life goes on and we learn from our past."

But have we?

The Titanic and the Concordia have many similarities.

The Titanic was the biggest ship built to date in England at that time — and the Concordia was the biggest ship built so far in Italy. One crashed into an iceberg, the other, a reef or rock. Christened in 2006, the Concordia was the largest and most luxurious in the Costa cruise fleet, boasting bars, restaurants, a gym, large spa and several lavish suites.

In its day, the Titanic had similar amenities — although there were more severe class differences on the Titanic, and the chasm between first- and third-class passengers was enforced by class-only eating, sitting and mingling areas. In today's cruising world, the passengers in the $199 cabins on the weekend cruises out of Miami can, and do, sun themselves alongside the folks in the $3,000 suites.

The Concordia was slightly larger (952 feet to the Titanic's 883 feet) and both had a top speed of 23 knots. Ominously, both had issues with their christening, and believers in superstition may attribute the ships' tragedies to it. Before a ship's maiden voyage, it's common for a dignitary to "christen" the vessel by breaking a bottle of champagne on the hull for good luck. The Titanic was never christened. The Concordia was christened during a ceremony when the ship came online, but the champagne bottle never broke. After each tragedy, people wondered whether the lack of a proper christening was a bad omen.

But then there are the differences. The Titanic had 2,207 people on board; the Concordia about 4,200. The Titanic was much smaller: 46,328 tons compared with the Concordia's 114,500 tons.

And of course, there were the safety measures developed over a century to ensure safety.

Safety standards for large passenger ships grew out of a convention in 1914, two years after the Titanic disaster — which means that all modern-day cruise ships, including the Concordia, should have benefited from the lessons learned from the Titanic. The rules eventually were adopted by the International Maritime Organization, an agency of the United Nations.

Ships are required to have public address systems for announcements to passengers, and lifeboats must be at least partially enclosed. They also must hold weekly "abandon ship" and fire drills. More recently, the safety group had determined that the greatest safety threat to passengers was the evacuation of large ships.

Lifeboats also are required to be capable of being loaded, launched and maneuvered away from the ship within 30 minutes of the Master's signal to abandon ship.

As was detailed during the hour-long tour of "Titanic: The Experience" in Orlando — complete with a guide dressed in a Victorian-looking peacoat and hat — the radio operators aboard the ship didn't relay what they thought were non-essential messages about icebergs to the ship's officers. Meanwhile, people aboard the ship didn't panic because the ship listed only a few degrees. There weren't enough lifeboats for all of the passengers aboard and some lifeboats left without being full.

And that's one comparison between the Concordia and Titanic that appears to be correct: Both were disasters affected by human error.

"It's amazing that 100 years later, we're still arguing about how many lifeboats are needed, what kind of training the crew had and what the evacuation procedures were," said Bob Jarvis, a maritime law professor at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "One-hundred years later, we still don't do a good job getting passengers ready for a disaster."

Many passengers aboard the Concordia have complained the crew didn't give them good directions on evacuating and waited so long to lower the lifeboats that many couldn't be released because the ship was listing so heavily.

Ananias, the L.A. schoolteacher, said they were forced to shimmy along a rope down the exposed side of the ship to a waiting rescue boat below.

Some passengers also have complained that the Concordia's captain, Francesco Verusio, abandoned the cruise liner before all his passengers had escaped. The Titanic's captain, Edward Smith, died the night the ship sank. Some historians say he went down with the boat.

Authorities are holding the Italian captain for investigation of suspected manslaughter and abandoning his ship, among other possible charges. According to the Italian navigation code, a captain who abandons a ship in danger can face up to 12 years in prison.

A century ago, people thought the Titanic was unsinkable because it was so large and mighty. Today, people marvel that a ship like the Concordia could have run aground while sailing a routine course.

A gash can be seen in the body of the cruise ship

"To see a ship like this in 2012, with all the sophisticated navigation equipment, doing something that it does every week, you don't expect that today," Jarvis said. "And we all think we know about the Titanic because of the 1997 film. Now we have something to compare it to."

Stories like the Concordia make people like Cindy and Terry Carroll think long and hard about taking a cruise. The married couple from Hamilton, Ontario, are longtime Titanic buffs and made sure to stop by the museum — which also features a Titanic-themed dinner theater in the evenings — during their weeklong Orlando vacation. Neither has ever been on a cruise, though, in part reluctant because of what they know of the Titanic. It was a fear Cindy Carroll had overcome — at least until now.

"A friend had finally talked me into going," Cindy Carroll said with a laugh. "Now, probably not."

Cruise disaster: three confirmed dead and 69 passengers still missing

By Roya Nikkhah
The Telegraph

9:04AM GMT 14 Jan 2012

Costa Concordia pictured last night dangerously keeled over off the Giglio Island

Italian prosecutors have detained the captain of the cruise ship that ran aground off Tuscany as three people are confirmed dead and local officials report that 69 people are still unaccounted for.

Earlier Saturday Francesco Schettino, captain of the Costa Concordia, had told Italian television that the vessel had hit a rocky spur while cruising in waters which, according to the charts, should have been safe. "As we were navigating at cruise speed, we hit a rocky spur," he told Tgcom24 television station: "According to the nautical chart, there should have been sufficient water underneath us," he added.

Holidaymakers from Britain, France, Italy and Germany were forced to flee the 1,500-cabin Costa Concordia in lifeboats when it hit a reef less than two hours after leaving port. Some leapt overboard and swam to shore as the ship started to sink into the waters near the island of Giglio, off the Tuscan coast. Francesco Paolillo, the coastguard spokesman, said that at least three bodies were retrieved from the sea. Local officials are also reporting that 69 people are still unaccounted for.

By this morning, the ship was lying virtually flat off Giglio's coast, its starboard side submerged in the water.

Pregnant women and young children were among the 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew on board.

Passengers' dinner on Friday night was interrupted by a loud boom at around 8pm and a voice over the loud-speaker system initially claimed that the ship was suffering an electrical failure, before ordering everyone on-board to don life-jackets. "It was just like something out of the Titanic," one woman said. "You could tell straight away that the ship had hit something and no way was it an electrical fault."

Fabio Costa, who worked in a shop on the stricken cruise ship, said a number of people were jumping into the sea to swim ashore. Describing the moment the boat began to list, he told the BBC: "All of a sudden we felt the boat hitting something and everything just started to fall, all the glasses broke and everybody started to panic and run. We could only feel that the boat had hit something, we had no idea how serious it was until we got out and we looked through the window and we saw the water getting closer and closer. Everything happened really, really fast and we saw the water coming in."

Mr Costa said that once the emergency alarm was set off people started to panic and push each other in a bid to get into lifeboats. "A lot of people were falling down the stairs and were hurt because things fell on them," he added.

The worker said it took the crew a long time to launch the lifeboats as the vessel had listed so much. He said: "We just saw a huge rock, that was probably where the ship hit, and people were having huge trouble trying to get on the lifeboats. So at that point we didn't know what to do so it took hours for people to get off the ship. It was easier for people to jump into the sea because we were on the same level as that water so some people pretty much just decided to swim as they were not able to get on the lifeboats."

Helicopters airlifted to safety around 50 people who were trapped on board. The Costa Crociera company, which operates the seven-day Mediterranean cruise, said there were 1,000 Italians on the ships as well as 500 Germans and around 150 French people but could not confirm whether any Britons were among the evacuated.

The Foreign Office, which is sending a team to the scene, said that a few dozen British passengers are believed to have been on board.

A spokesman said: "We are in close contact with the local authorities and are working urgently to identify British nationals involved. A consular team from the British Embassy will shortly be in the area to provide consular assistance."

Philip Metcalf from Dorset described how his daughter Rose, a dancer and entertainer on the Costa Concordia, was brought to safety early this morning. He said: "My phone rang just before three. I had a message from Rose telling me not to worry that she was OK but there had been a fire or something on board and she had been airlifted from near Tuscany. She said she had to wait a long time and that she was one of the last ones to be taken of, as she was staff. It sounds a bit like the Titanic. The boat seemed to have taken on water. I'm just so glad she's alright and she's one of the lucky ones."

Miss Metcalf posted a message on Facebook last night, saying: "My name is Rose, its Friday 13th and I'm one of the last survivors on board the sinking cruise liner off the coast of Italy. Pray for us to be rescued."

A local mayor on the island of Giglio said he was trying to find rooms to house the stranded people overnight. A spokesman said: "In this moment all our efforts are focused on the completion of the last emergency operations, besides providing assistance to the guests and the crew who were onboard. The company will fully co-operate with the relevant authorities in order to determine the causes of what happened."

An explosion heard by some of the passengers on board may have been caused by a phenomenon known as “harmonic interference”, according to Malcolm Latarche, the editor of the global shipping magazine IHS Fairplay Solutions.

Mr Latarche said that the ship was powered by a bank of six diesel-electric engines which effectively worked as an on-board power station designed to supply electricity to all parts of the vessel. But like power stations on land, the engines are prone to electrical surges and troughs caused by “harmonic interference”.

Mr Latarche added: “From the reports I have seen it seems there was an explosion followed by a blackout which could have been caused by a power surge. There are various back-up systems in place on all ships but they may have failed also."

Mr Latarche said it was possible the cruise ship experienced the same problem that saw the Queen Mary 2 (QM2) lose power in September 2010 as she was approaching Barcelona. He continued: “Once you have a problem with the electric supply to the ship’s main propulsion motors that could lead to a problem with steering. Once you are in a position where you cannot control a ship's speed and direction you have a problem until you can get those systems back on line. It seems that this may have happened quite close to land, in shallow water. When you can’t steer you are going to run aground and hit rocks at some point.”

The Costa Crociera company said the evacuation of the ship started promptly, but the operation was hindered as the vessel started to list on one side.

Some passengers claimed that the crew had failed to give instructions on how to evacuate the ship. An evacuation drill was scheduled for Saturday afternoon. Melissa Goduti, 28, an American on board the ship told the Associated Press: "It was so unorganised, our evacuation drill was scheduled for 17:00 (16:00 GMT). We had joked what if something had happened today."

The cruise ship had set off from the Civitavecchia port near Rome earlier on Friday and had been due to visit Palermo, Cagliari, Palma, Barcelona and Marseille.

Italian media reported that the ship had been involved in a previous accident in Italian waters in 2008, when strong winds around Palermo, the Sicilian capital, caused the ship to bang against the port's dock. The ship was reported to have suffered damage but nobody aboard was injured. Two years ago, a Costa Cruises ship crashed into a dock at the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh, killing three members of the crew.

The ship, which entered into service in 2006, is described on the firm’s website as “one of the biggest ships in the Costa fleet, a real floating temple of fun that will amaze you.” Built at a Cost of £372 million, it features four swimming pools, a 64,000 sq ft spa with a gym, sauna, Turkish bath and solarium. There is also a running track, cinema, theatre, art gallery and casino on board.

Prices begin at around £400 but can exceed £1,200 for the first-class cabins.

 

 

COMMENTS (1/17/12): It is 21 months late, but this comes closest to what I was expecting: another Titanic or worse. PREDICTION FULFILLED.

 

THEY WERE RED ALERTS. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN THE REAL DEAL ... BUT INSTEAD IT WAS A "TITANIC" CLOSE CALL ... SEVEN MONTHS LATE

  Fire on Carnival Splendour

The Brilliant Stories

9 November 2010 | posted by: Jerry Litt

Cruise ship Carnival Splendour got stranded offshore when a fire that started in the engine room resulted in the power supply getting switched off. Matters were saved from getting out of hand on the ship that carried 3,299 passengers, apart from 1,167 crew members. There were no cases of injuries or casualties in the incident.

The US coastguard and spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Lines, the operator of Carnival Splendour, confirmed that the ship was being towed to safety and was near to a Mexican port. It will arrive only after Wednesday night.

The fire reportedly broke out on Monday morning when the luxury ship was south of San Diego in California. Miami-based operator Carnival Cruise Lines said that a snag had hit the air conditioning of the ship, and also the telephone service. However the auxiliary power systems tried to reduce passenger discomfort as much as possible.

The coastguard swung into action and the naval forces of the US and Mexico aided their efforts to rescue the ship. Special aircraft and ships were deployed to bail out the stricken vessel that had drifted off 55 miles from the coast of the northern fringe of Baja.

It is being expected that 2 Mexican seagoing tugboats that sailed in a rescue venture from the port of Ensenada, will escort the ship to safety by tomorrow. Passengers will be ferried by buses with a California destination, said a spokeswoman for Carnival Cruise Lines, Joyce Oliva.

Crippled Carnival Cruise Ship, With 4,500 Aboard, Reaches Shore

NYTimes

November 11, 2010

Controlled by four tugboats, the Carnival Splendor entered the harbor in San Diego, Calif.

SAN DIEGO — They arrived at the dock just after 8 a.m., hanging off the balconies at every level, clapping and cheering, looking something like a boatload of refugees eager to debark in a prosperous land. Here, after all, they would be able to get hot showers, toilets that flush and fresh food.

Sabrina Klinge, a passenger who was on board the Carnival Splendor cruise ship for her honeymoon, left the ship terminal in San Diego. The roughly 3,300 passengers on Carnival’s Splendor cruise ship had been at sea for more than 72 hours without electricity, the result of a fire early Monday in the ship’s engine room.

Most of them were eager to tell their tales of survival — how they sat restlessly by the pool for hours, unable to jump in because there was no chlorine pump, or how they passed the time by rewriting the lyrics of the “Gilligan’s Island” theme song to tell of their own woes. (“No casinos, showers, hot food or lights; our ship could only float.”)

They waited in lines for more than an hour to get their meals of Pop-Tarts, hot dog salads, pickle sandwiches and warm yogurt. “I hated that there was no electricity or room service,” said Caitlyn Harlen, an 8-year-old who was on board with her family from Buena Park, Calif. “I love room service. I always get brownies. This time, the only time I got a brownie was the first night.” A few passengers said they saw some kind of canned meat product, but Carnival Cruise Lines officials insisted that while Spam was delivered to the ship, it was never served.

The officials said nobody was hurt as a result of the fire, although one passenger was taken away in an ambulance for unrelated matters. The ship was expected to remain in San Diego for several days while officials from the National Transportation Safety Board and the Coast Guard investigate the fire.

The ship sailed from Long Beach, Calif., on Sunday for what was supposed to be a seven-day trip through the Mexican Riviera. It was 44 miles offshore, roughly 200 miles south of San Diego, when the fire broke out. On Thursday, Coast Guard officials used several tugboats to bring the ship in. It took more than four hours to get all the passengers off the boat. The vast majority of them were whisked away in tour buses and taxis, taken to the San Diego and Los Angeles airports or local hotels for the night. But about 200 or 300 slowly trickled off the cruise ship pier in downtown San Diego, meeting friends or family members for a ride home.

As the massive ship entered the dock, hundreds of local residents who showed up just to watch waved and hollered to celebrate the arrival. Amid a swarm of TV cameras and photographers, the passengers were treated as if they were military heroes coming home from battle. Ken King persuaded the crew members to allow him to be the first passenger off the boat by explaining it was his 42nd birthday. All he could look forward to, he said, was “coffee, a hot shower and meat,” explaining that he was tired of eating bread. “What advice do you have for others?” one cameraman shouted to Mr. King. “Bring a flashlight and lots of snacks,” he deadpanned. “The food was really not very good.”

But it was even more difficult for the vegetarians on the ship, said Eric Newman, 27, of Ventura, Calif., who was on his first cruise, with his sister. Mr. Newman said that while most of the crew members had been exceedingly cheery, one snapped at him when he asked for extra salad or fruit. In the end, Mr. Newman said, he marched to the kitchen himself to find something he could eat. “It seemed like they were not at all prepared for anything to ever go wrong,” he said. “That’s just arrogant. And it made everything really hard.”

Crew members served free wine and beer, though passengers who craved more potent drinks had to pay for their own, say, vodka. Luckily for them, several shops on the ship opened after Tuesday, doing cash-only transactions during daylight hours. “They had liquor and pashminas and perfume, all kinds of stuff, and I saw lots of people buying it,” said Jeanne Ralston, a retired nurse from Santa Barbara, Calif. “I’ve been on these cruises too often to want that stuff.”

Carnival has promised to refund the fare and reimburse passengers for their travel costs — as well as offer them a voucher for another cruise. Like many of the passengers, Mr. Newman was ambivalent about the offer. “I won’t be using that for a very long time,” he said. The cruise director, John Heald, said in a post on his blog that while some passengers would call it the “cruise from hell,” most “have risen to the obvious challenges and difficult conditions.” On Thursday, he praised the nearly 1,200 crew members, saying that those on the ship “became a family and left today very thankful for our family.”

Russian Attack Submarine Sinks off Northern Norway; Radiation Hazard

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/24/09, PRESENTATION POSTED: 12/27/10 -- As 2010 winds down to a close, it is important that as many loose ends as possible be tied up in the days ahead, which includes predictions from the list at the bottom of this page which appeared on the Second Home page on December 24, 2009, that have not yet been posted in the customary manner (like this, in other words).

This is yet another of a number of sub-related or ship-related accidents, disasters, or military clashes that have, thus far, failed to materialise despite all of the many base 7 indications favouring such incidents. This one was to have occurred in April 2010. Again, time may still tell in the months ahead.

President Barack Obama Is Assassinated

 

Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.57 ~

Before the conflict the great one falls, the great one to death, death, too sudden and lamented,
born imperfect: the greater part he will go, near the river with blood the land is stained.

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 7/4/08 -- The great one falls in April 2010, almost exactly one month after his historic speech to the nation and to the world. This will not likely be a terrorist attack in nature, but a murder by one of his own countrymen, racism being a possible motive. However, there may also be great anger among citizens who feel that his speech should have been more forthcoming and given a year sooner or even by George W. Bush during the previous administration.

There is a second vector for Obama that, in my opinion, is far more ominous than this one, although it is much later: November 2012. He would be struck down a few weeks after his re-election in the 2012 presidential race. I will not explain fully yet, or at this location, why the November 2012 vector is so frightening ... yes frightening. It would be better for Obama and the world that he never be assassinated, but if he is, it is better that it happen in April 2010 than November 2012.

At this writing it is far from certain who shall be elected president: Barack Obama or John McCain. Both men have their own unique signatures of death and, as a result, different vectors when disaster might strike. These are Obama's vectors.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/10/08 -- This earthquake centred near Seattle in April 2010 will be the last warning the West Coast will get before the Big One finally arrives in San Francisco later in the year. It may cause about as much damage as the Los Angeles Northridge quake of 1994, but will fall short of the great destruction that will be seen in October 2010.

Al Qaeda Attacks US Bases in Saudi Arabia

 

Al Qaeda strike the US again in Arabia

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/10/08 -- Osama will do it ... and not for the first time. Major attacks by Al Qaeda have occurred against US residential compounds and air bases in Saudi Arabia in 1995, 1996 and again in 2003. This attack will come in May 2010 and should be far worse than those previous.

 

  Saudi Arabia Arrests Hundreds in Terrorist Plot to Disrupt Oil Facilities

March 24, 2010 (ChattahBox)— Reuters is reporting that hundreds of militants have been rounded up in the oil-rich Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Details of the crackdown are still sketchy, but the militants are suspected of plotting attacks on vital oil installations and other state facilities. The majority of the arrested militants are reported to be Saudi nationals. But a large number of non-Saudis, including Yemenis, were also arrested in the terrorist crackdown. The terrorist network was allegedly planning a series of attacks on infrastructure facilities in Saudi Arabia, including oil installations, which provides much of the world’s oil supply.

MSNBC is reporting that Saudi “Police have arrested 172 militants who were plotting to attack Saudi Arabia’s oil fields, storm its prisons to free the inmates and use aircraft in their attacks.” The Interior Ministry released a statement, saying “They had reached an advance stage of readiness and what remained only was to set the zero hour for their attacks,” said Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Mansour al-Turki. “They had the personnel, the money, the arms.

Almost all the elements for terror attacks were complete except for setting the zero hour for the attacks.” The attacks were planned against “public figures, oil facilities, refineries … and military zones” and the militants have been linked to al-Qaida.

 
Al-Qaeda Oil-Plant Bomb Plot Scotched In Saudi

Pattaya Daily News

March 25, 2010 :: 16:03:42

Saudi security forces have arrested 113 suspected ‘al-Qaeda terrorists who had plans to attack the oil-rich Eastern Province, home to Saudi Arabia’s main oil fields, instillations and refineries, specifically those run by Saudi Aramco, the world’s biggest oil company, managing reserves of 260 billion barrels of crude oil and the fourth-largest gas reserves in the world.

Saudi Aramco used to be an essentially Western-run company, as the American Arabian Oil Company largely managed by American oil companies, like what are now Chevron, Exxon, Texaco till it was progressively nationalized by the Saudi Arabian government between 1973 and 1980, when essentially all of Aramco‘s assets were transferred to the government. Its headquarters is in Dhahran, with camps, essentially self-contained oil-oases, located throughout the kingdom, in Jeddah and Rub‘ al-Khali desert, but largely in the east.

The network of 101 suspects, composed of 47 Saudis and others from Yemen, Somalia, Eritrea and Bangladesh, according to interior ministry spokesman, Mansour al-Turki, which specialised in targeting security personnel and oil installations. The network were linked to an al-Qaeda affiliate based in neighbouring Yemen, which had expanded operations recently due to the currently unstable nature of the country. Saudi government forces have been attempting to subdue Shia Houthi separatists on the northern Yemeni border.

Two other terrorist cells, 12 suspects in all, described as suicide bombers from their explosive-laden belts, and apparently working independently of the larger group, were also arrested and weapons, ammunition cameras, pre-paid telephone cards, cash, documents and computers confiscated. Both groups were apparently intending to attack unspecified oil facilities almost immediately. They were all arrested over a five-month period.

The recent merger, in January 2009, between the al-Qaeda networks in Saudi Arabia and in Yemen, and their relocation to Yemen’s northern border has unnerved security forces in Riyadh. Yemen is the homeland of Bin Laden family, the miltant faction of which is essentially opposed to the predominantly Western influence in Saudi and has as its endgame the establishment of an Islamic caliphate, to be attained by causing the downfall of the Saudi royal family and Yemeni government, largely through attacks on oil facilities, and their infrastructure, foreign workers and security forces.

The large terrorist group was discovered following an attempt by three suspected Al-Qaeda militants, two of them dressed as women, to enter Saudi Arabia, armed with explosives last October. Many of those recently arrested in southern province of Jazan, near the border with Yemen, had come to Saudi Arabia on visas to visit holy sites, as job-applicants, or by sneaking across its borders, which are almost impossible to contain, spanning 1,450km (900 miles), over inhospitable desert terrain.

A number of successful terrorist attacks on Saudi Arabia killed 35 people in Riyadh in May 2003, and a further 17 in a subsequent attack that year. A year later, 30 were killed in Al Khobar during an attack on a residential compound for oil workers. In August, 2009, a suicide bomber with explosive underpants almost killed Saudi Arabia’s security chief, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef. Earlier in March, Saudi King Abdullah said the kingdom is determined to halt extremism, saying “A special effort has been made to confront the thinking of the group of deviants, extremists and terrorists.”

Experts say Al Qaeda is well organised and not to be underestimated

 

Islamic Prophecy ~

Thawbaan ~

“If you see the Black Banners coming from Khurasân (Afghanistan) go to them immediately, even if you must crawl over ice,
because indeed amongst them is the Caliph, Al Mahdî.”

Asmal Masalik Lieyyam Mahdiyy Maliki Li Kull-id Dunya Biemrillah-il Malik, Qalda bin Zayd ~

"The black flags will come from the East, led by mighty men, with long hair and beards, their surnames are taken from
the names of their home towns and their first names are from a Kunya."

 

COMMENTS (4/20/10): This planned massive attack by 113 Al Qaeda on Saudi facilities, oil fields and installations, public figures, and Western and Saudi military targets has been averted for the time being. We must consider this a PREDICTION PREVENTED, but have little doubt that it would have been carried out in May 2010 if the militants had not been arrested and captured beforehand. We also must keep in mind that it remains possible yet another such plot has not been scotched and the predicted event may still take place. But, should such an event fail to occur, I would point to this mass arrest as to the reason why.

The above intelligence photo of Al Qaeda training in Afghanistan which accompanied one of the articles concerning this prevented attack should serve as a prophetic warning. Note the black banners they are carrying. Islamic prophecy mentions the "black banners" and the "black banners of Khurasan" in the end times. The messianic al Mahdi is amongst them often and is linked with Saudi Arabia. Another prominent character in Islamic prophecy who helps lead the black banners is a Jordanian. There is much mention of Arabs, in other words, being amongst the black banners of Afghanistan (which is also a reference to the Taliban as well as Al Qaeda).

Hollywood Horrors Part Two:
Actor or Actress Commits Kinky Suicide
Or Dies from Extremely Bizarre Causes

NEW PREDICTION: 1/6/09 -- This timeline has the distinction of being witness to some of the most whacked-out, crazy, bizarre, gruesome, and kinky deaths of Hollywood figures that one can imagine.

The Great HoudiniWe kick off this series of strange untimely departures on Halloween night 1926 when illusionist Harry Houdini, in hospital and suffering from unbearable thirst, died of peritonitis from a ruptured appendix less than a week after taking a punch in the stomach on a bet the eve of the final performance of his ultimate bondage escape: the infamous Water Torture Cell! His suddenly weakened condition upside-down and chained in the water tank left him nearly unable to break his restraints and when the ordeal was over, hidden from the public view as usual behind a black curtain, he emerged smiling but with a sickly pallor on his face and a broken ankle. His final show, the circumstances surrounding it, and death less than a week later may actually have been prophesied by the famous French clairvoyant Nostradamus who wrote in Quatrain 8.100: "For the abundance of tears shed, from top to bottom and from the bottom to the very top. Too great a faith through a game a life is lost, from thirst to die through abundant deficiency."

This was also the year that legendary silent screen star and sex symbol Rudolph Valentino died of uremic poisoning at age 31. But it was not his own death that was so bizarre as the rash of suicides by grief-striken female fans that followed in 1926 and 1927 by various methods. Much like the hundreds of copycat suicides that followed the hanging deaths of South Korean pop singer U-Nee and South Korean actresses Lee Eun-ju, Jeong Da-bin, and most recently Choi Jin-sil, Western women who swooned under the spell of Valentino in life, gave way to the allure of an early death by poisoning, drugs, asphyxiation, and numerous other methods.

In 1933, rotund silent film comic Fatty Arbuckle was found lying dead in the street from alcohol poisoning. While there was nothing particularly spectacular about his premature demise, the events that led up to it became legendary. Fatty's career and reputation, it seems, was utterly destroyed after more than a decade of scandalous trials during which he was accused of raping and murdering a promising up-and-coming actress and model named Virginia Rappe with a coke bottle.

5 Sep 1921 Starlet Virginia Rappe somehow ruptures her bladder during actor-comedian Fatty Arbuckle's party at the Saint Francis Hotel in San Francisco. Three days later, the feverish woman is checked into a maternity hospital, where she dies from peritonitis. Arbuckle is eventually tried for murder, but acquitted. THAT'S A RAPPE! A mugshot of popular silent-screen comedian Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. At a raucous, three-day party in 1921, a young starlet becomes severely ill and dies four days later. Newspapers go wild with the story: Arbuckle had killed Virginia Rappe by savagely raping her with a coke bottle and tearing up her intestines in the process. Though the newspapers of the day revel in the gory, rumored details, juries find little evidence that Arbuckle was in any way connected with her death.

In January 1947, the nude body of Elizabeth Short, another wannabe actress hoping to hit it big in Hollywoodland, was discovered in a vacant lot sawn in half and her mouth slit from ear to ear in a macabre grimace. In 1954 there was no strange celebrity dust-biting, but the strange case of Dr. Samuel Shepphard caught the imagination of the public after his wife Marilyn's semi-nude body was found in bed, her head badly smashed and beaten, with signs also of her having been raped. The good doctor, it seems, was startled awake in the living room by a loud scream and moaning coming from the bedroom, and upon discovering his wife's body, was then clubbed over the head by his wife's assailant and rendered once again unconscious. Thus, in this manner, Dr, Samuel Sheppard was unwillingly catapulted to a kind of celebrity criminal status. As trials ensued, a weekly television saga based on this strange case called The Fugitive became an overnight sensation, and the endless search and pursuit by "Dr. Richard Kimble" to prove his innocence by finding his wife's killer began, often being only one step ahead of his nemesis Lt. Philip Gerard and likewise often only one step behind the mysterious "one-armed man." Meantime, as the Kennedy Camelot years took off, prim and proper Wizard of Oz actress Clara Blandick ("Auntie Em") was found dead in a bathtub with a plastic bag wrapped tightly around her head and face, her face frozen in a grotesque, leering grin. In the room was a note which read in part: "I am now about to take the great adventure . . ."

Death copter approachesIn more recent years actor Vic Morrow, along with two young children would die horribly on the set of Twilight Zone: The Movie. Morrow and the two children, My-Ca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen, were shooting a scene for the Vietnam sequence; running from a pursuing helicopter. The helicopter was flying at a low level when pyrotechnic explosions caused the helicopter to lose control and crash on top of the three.

Morrow and Le were both decapitated by the blades; Chen was fatally crushed underneath the helicopter's landing skid. The accident that killed Vic Morrow and the children virtually destroyed the career of the story's rising director, John Landis, who had already made no small claim to fame with films such as The Howling (1980) and An American Werewolf in London (1981).

Then there was actor Jack Nance who starred in the David Lynch film Eraserhead and in Lynch's Twin Peaks television series. In late December 1996, Nance claimed to friends at dinner to have been punched in the head earlier that morning in a brawl outside a Winchell's Donuts with two Hispanic men who had been making fun of him at the counter. Later, after recounting the tale, he excused himself, complaining that he had a splitting headache, and went promptly home to bed. He was found there dead the next day. A few years earlier his girlfriend, porn star Nancee Kellee, had been found hanged to death at age 33. She had been performing at a bachelor party only a few hours earlier. Her body was found in the bedroom of her suburban North Hollywood apartment by family friend Lisa Loring. While Loring was at a drugstore getting Kellee's prescription for tranquilizers filled, Nancee used a rope plant-hanger and its hook to hang herself. Old scars on her neck indicated past incidents of auto-erotic asphyxiation by hanging.

Lana getting naughty with a gunLana, rubbing the gun against her cheeks, decides to perform Russian roulette fellatioSpring ahead to the last time we rounded this curve: in 2003. It is still being deliberated in the sensational murder trial of legendary record producer Phil Spector whether or not he purposely shot actress Lana Clarkson to death. The defence continues to argue that forensic evidence proves that the starlet was giddy and intoxicated from alcohol when she entered Spector's residence and in a sexually aroused, "rather naughty" state.

At some point then, they contend, she engaged in a kind of edgeplay with Spector where she performed fellatio on the barrel of his handgun, at times withdrawing the weapon and rubbing the cold metal against her warm, reddening cheeks before wrapping her lips around the deadly metal phallus and once again sliding it in and out of her mouth.

The gun either went off inside of her mouth accidentally or she shot herself deliberately in the heat of sexual passion, fulfilling a deep-seated death wish. We can see, therefore, how two different predicted events can sometimes fuse together into one. The Lana Clarkson case can be viewed as a brutal homicide or a naughty suicide and I doubt we will ever know the real truth.

This prediction, however, is dedicated to our man of yester-year and possible top deadly influence for May 2010: actor Albert Dekker, who played the legendary film character Dr. Cyclops, whose death in 1968 may be the strangest and kinkiest in the history of Hollywood.

This is quoted from Wikipedia (because they say it so well):

 

Born Albert Van Ecke in Brooklyn, New York, he adopted his mother's maiden name of Dekker as his stage name. Dekker attended Bowdoin College and made his professional acting debut with a Cincinnati stock company in 1927. Within a few months, Dekker was featured in the Broadway production of Eugene O'Neill's play Marco Millions.

After a decade's worth of impressive theatrical appearance, Albert Dekker made his first film, 1937's The Great Garrick. Usually cast as villains, Dekker was starred in the Technicolor horror film Dr. Cyclops (1940) and played a fascinating dual role in the 1941 suspenser Among the Living.

Dekker's offscreen preoccupation with politics led to his winning a California State Assembly seat in 1944; during the McCarthy era, Dekker became an outspoken critic of the Wisconsin senator's tactics, and as a result the actor found it hard to get work in Hollywood.

He returned to Broadway, then made a movie comeback in 1959. During his last decade, Dekker alternated between film, stage and TV assignments; he also embarked on several college-campus lecture tours.

In May of 1968, Dekker was found strangled to death in his Hollywood home. His naked body was bound hand and foot, a hypodermic needle was jammed into each arm, and obscenities were scrawled all over the corpse. At first, it seemed that Dekker was a closet homosexual who had committed suicide (early reports suggested that the writings on his body were his bad movie reviews) or had died while having rough sex. However, there were also items stolen from his apartment, so it is also possible that he was murdered during the course of a robbery.

"Dekker was kneeling nude in the bathtub.  A noose was around his neck but not tight enough to have strangled him. A scarf was tied over his eyes and a horse’s bit was in his mouth, fashioned from a rubber ball and metal wire, the bit had chain "reins" that were tightly tied beneath his head. Two leather straps were stretched between the leather belts that girded his neck and chest. A third belt, around his waist, was tied with a rope that stretched to his ankles, where it had been tied in some kind of timber hitch. The end of the rope, which continued up his side, wrapped around his wrist several times and was held in Dekker’s hand. Handcuffs clamped both wrists with a key attached. Written in red lipstick on his right buttock was the word, "whip." Sunrays had also been drawn around his nipples. "Make me suck," was written on his throat, and "slave," and "cocksucker," on his chest. On his stomach was drawn a vagina. He had apparently been dead for several days.

 

Here is an actual video by Scott Michaels, from his film "Dearly Departed: Vol. 1," discussing this in greater detail ... and we are even given a tour of the apartment, the bathroom, and bathtub/shower where Dekker gave his final performance! Watch the reaction of the apartment's current tenant when she is told of what happened in her bathroom so very long ago!

 

Thus, I believe we should keep an eye on Hollywood for yet another macabre, gruesome, or kinky murder or suicide of an actor or actress, although now that the Lana Clarkson murder is most recent, it should most likely be a male actor. Technically, the vectors are all over the place, January, May, October, and December being most outstanding, thus, May 2010 is not the final word here unless another Albert Dekker-like death occurs. Chances are good it will be quite strange, gruesome, or bizarre since every 21 (3 x 7) years we have seen this to be the case: 1926, 1947, 1968, 1989, and next ... 2010!

Actor was found in a Bangkok hotel hanging by a rope in a closet, police say

June 5, 2009

Actor David Carradine(CNN) -- American actor David Carradine has been found dead, hanging by a nylon rope in a hotel room closet in Bangkok, Thailand, according to a Thai police official. Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred as traveling Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the television series "Kung Fu," was 72.

The rope was believed to be from the hotel room curtains, Bangkok Police Lt. Col. Pirom Chanpirom said Thursday. He said investigators found no sign of forced entry into Carradine's room.

An autopsy was being conducted at a Bangkok hospital, but no results will be available for another day, he said.

A Carradine family spokeswoman issued a short statement saying the family "is devastated by the news of David's passing."

"Circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown, and there will be no further comment until more information can be confirmed," the statement said. "The family appreciates the many expressions of condolence, and asks for privacy at this time."

David Carradine's manager suspects foul play in actor's death

David Carradine's family, manager dispute suicide theory

June 5, 2009

Actor David Carradine's hanging death is stirring much controversy due to the appearance of his body when it was discovered.LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- David Carradine's wife and his manager disputed suggestions that the actor's death was a suicide, while a source in Bangkok, Thailand, said the actor's neck and genitals were found bound with rope.

David Carradine was the star of the 1970s TV series, "Kung Fu," and appeared in more than 100 films. Carradine, 72, became famous in the 1970s, when he portrayed the traveling Shaolin monk Kwai Chang Caine in the television series "Kung Fu."

Bangkok police said Carradine was found hanging by a nylon rope in a Bangkok hotel room closet Thursday morning.

A member of the emergency crew who was called to the hotel after a maid found Carradine told CNN that a yellow nylon rope was tied around the actor's neck and a black rope was around his genitals. The source asked not to be identified.

"I do not know if you want to call it accidental," Chuck Binder, Carradine's manager, told CNN's Larry King on Thursday. He said Carradine's career was on a roll and his life was on a resurgence.

Binder said a producer of the movie, "Stretch," which Carradine was to act in, called him from Thailand to tell him what was happening there. "I do not want to get in the middle of this whole investigation, but this guy said to me for sure there was foul play," Binder said.

Actor Michael Madsen told King that the one thing Carradine's wife, Annie Bierman, wanted everyone to know is, "David was not suicidal."

Investigators found no sign of a forced entry into Carradine's room, Bangkok Police Lt. Colonel Pirom Chanpirom said. An autopsy was being conducted at a Bangkok hospital, but no results would be available for another day, Chanpirom said.

Modern audiences may best know Carradine as "Bill" in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" films. He earned a 2005 Golden Globe nomination for his role in the second movie in the two-part saga. Tarantino, also appearing on "Larry King Live," called Carradine one of "Hollywood's great mad geniuses."

"He was a rock star at the time 'Kung Fu' came out," Tarantino said, holding up a vintage metal lunch box with an image from the popular show ...

Did Bizarre Sexual Practice Kill David Carradine?

By The Improper.com

June 5, 2009

David Carradine as CaineDid a bizarre sexual practice kill actor David Carradine? As new details emerge about his death, the possibility exists that Carradine did not take his own life.

He may have actually strangled himself accidentally while trying to heighten an orgasm while masturbating. In the BDSM community, the practice is known as “breathplay” or often “edgeplay,” because individuals push the limits of safe, sane sex. Usually a partner is involved just in case a person passes out and needs to be revived.

The great majority of known erotic asphyxial deaths are males. While the mean age of accidental death is the mid-20s, men in their 70s have also been known to die from the practice. If Carradine died in this fashion, his insurance company could not invoke a suicide clause in any policy he may hold and would have to pay full benefits.

The biggest clue that Carradine’s death was due to erotic asphyxia is the fact that he was found naked hanging from a closet pole. He was discovered with a cord around his neck and genitals, which would be part of the act. No suicide note was found.

In many fatal cases, the body of the victim is discovered naked or with genitalia in hand. In some cases pornographic magazines are nearby, with dildos or other sex toys present, or with evidence of orgasm prior to death. The actor’s state of mind would also be key. He was in Thailand working on a movie, and there have been no recent reports of depression or suicidal thoughts or behavior leading up to his death. Authorities are reportedly conducting an autopsy.

Hanging, suffocation with a plastic bag over the head and self-strangulation with a rope or cord are frequent ways to create the oxygen depletion necessary to heighten an orgasm.

The mortality rate of autoerotic asphyxia ranges between 250 to 1000 deaths per year in the United States. Death most often occurs when the individual passes out and is unable to free himself leading to death.

The Oscar-nominated star, who played the role of Bill in Quentin Tarantino's hit “Kill Bill” movies was discovered hanged in the room by a chamber maid. His manager Chuck Binder called the death "shocking and sad".

US Embassy spokesman in Thailand Michael Turner confirmed the passing of the 72-year-old actor, saying he died on either Wednesday evening (June 3) or this morning (June 6).

At the time of writing, Turner declined to provide anymore details out of consideration for his family. Carradine, who is probably best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine in the popular ‘70s TV series “Kung Fu,” is survived by his fifth wife, Annie Bierman.

Speaking of his role in “Kung Fu,” Carradine said: "I don't need to convince anybody that I know kung fu, but maybe somebody needs to know that I really can act without doing a Chinese accent or a funny walk." He was nominated as Best Actor for his role as Woody Guthrie in 1976 movie “Bound for Glory.”

Did David Carradine Die From Sex Act?

June 5, 2009

E! Online

Like the INXS singer, whose mysterious 1997 death in a Sydney hotel was believed to have been related to a sex act gone wrong, police in Thailand are focusing on the possibility that the star of Kung Fu and Kill Bill may have accidentally killed himself while engaging in autoerotic asphyxiation. Autoerotic asphyxiation is a practice whereby a person intentionally cuts off oxygen to the brain for the purpose of sexual arousal.

A representative for the Bangkok Swissotel's Nai Lert Park hotel told E! News that a maid found the 72-year-old actor's naked body hanging in a closet in his luxury suite. Now, investigators quoted in the Thai news site the Nation are revealing that there was also a rope tied around his genitals. "The two ropes were tied together," Police Lt. Gen. Worapong Chewprecha told reporters. "It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not, or he died of suffocation or heart failure."

A coroner completed an autopsy earlier today, but authorities say the results will not be released for at least three weeks, per standard procedure given the "unusual circumstances" surrounding Carradine's death and pending toxicology results.

Thai officials initially announced the erstwhile Grasshopper apparently committed suicide, but that theory was categorically shot down by Carradine's reps and shocked members of his family yesterday. "I know for a fact that he did not commit suicide," comanager Tiffany Smith told E! News.

Her partner, Chuck Binder, wondered whether foul play may have played a part. "I heard from a producer in Bangkok that his hands were tied behind his back and that it's being covered up," Binder said. "How do you get a rope around your neck and around your genitals and do all this by yourself?"

He continued: "The more I talk to people the more I think there's no way he killed himself. My take is there was definitely foul-play. There’s a lot of weird stuff that happens in Bangkok. This isn't L.A. or New York."

Smith said that Carradine was "full of life" when he arrived in Thailand May 29 to shoot a movie called Stretch. That description fit with statements from eyewitnesses who saw him the night he died. One of those was a hotel employee who said the martial-arts enthusiast seemed to be in a "good mood," often smiling while drinking at the lobby bar Wednesday night and chatting up various staff members before retiring to his room sometime around 9 p.m.

Carradine was a no-show at a crew dinner later that night and detectives say his room key card record shows he never left his suite. While there's also no indication anyone else entered the thespian's room, police have yet to officially rule out murder.

The U.S. embassy in Bangkok is expected to repatriate Carradine's body on Saturday. No word yet on funeral arrangements.

Meanwhile, perhaps lending credence to the new theory of his death, The Smoking Gun has unearthed a circa 2003 affidavit filed in court by Carradine's ex-wife Marina Anderson claiming the actor engaged in unspecified "deviant sexual behavior."

Fans of the prolific character actor should take comfort in knowing that Carradine had at least a half-dozen projects in the can at the time of his death. First up is a guest shot on Tuesday's episode of Mental.

David Carradine: Auto-Erotic Asphyxia's Deadly Thrill, a Secret Sex Practice

Expert Says Actor David Carradine Likely Practiced Secretively For a Lifetime

By SUSAN DONALDSON JAMES
ABC News

Actor David Carradine [L] and INX singer Michael Hutchence [R]June 5, 2009

The mysterious death of actor David Carradine -- perhaps by auto-erotic asphyxia -- focused renewed attention on a practice that is one of the greatest and most dangerous sexual taboos.

Both actor David Carradine (left) and INXS singer Michael Hutchence are believed to have died through a dangerous sexual practice called auto erotic asphyxia.

The 72-year-old actor was found dead in a Thai hotel room closet in an intricate web of ropes -- one around his neck, another around his genitals and the two tied together, according to Thai authorities.

Sex experts say that Carradine's advanced age suggests that he may have been a lifelong practitioner of the secretive and dangerous practice, one that can go fatally awry.

Los Angeles Superior Court documents of Carradine's divorce put online by The Smoking Gun show that his most recent ex-wife, Marina Anderson, accused the actor of "deviant sexual behavior which was potentially deadly." The alleged behavior wasn't described in the court documents.

Also known as hypoxyphilia, the practice is a sub-category of sexual masochism that involves reducing the oxygen supply to the brain while masturbating to achieve a heightened orgasm. "There's a fine line between the state of hypoxia [lack of oxygen in the brain] and death, and it's in that state that a person becomes highly aroused and it's what allows them to orgasm," said Eli Coleman, chair of the sexual health department at the University of Minnesota.

"People usually have safety nets and no intention to die, but something often goes wrong in their calculation," he told ABCNews.com. "Maybe a stool or something they are standing on somehow slips away."

The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates there are between 500 and 1,000 such deaths in the United States annually, mostly among young men. Many more may be falsely ruled as homicides or suicides.

Auto-erotic asphyxia often starts in adolescence, which is why many of the deaths associated with the practice are among young adults. But, the practice is not unknown among girls, according to Coleman. Because it is practiced alone, AEA is particularly dangerous. It is a compulsive activity that can also escalate, as may have been the case with Carradine, said Coleman. "We know very little about the people who practice this," he said. "Most of what we know is from those have accidentally died." ...

 

COMMENTS (6/6/09): I am truly slack-jawed with disbelief. What could be more like an Albert Dekker death than David Carradine's equally controversial and kinky exit? They'll be cracking jokes about how "Grasshopper" hanged himself naked in the "bang cock" hotel for decades to come as surely as they have been mocking the hideous masturbatory death of "Dr Cyclops" since 1968. The fact that he was working on a new film called "Stretch" at the time will add even more gusto to the gales of laughter to come, no doubt.

Note also that there were some who thought Albert Dekker's death was a murder rather than a kinky suicide. The same thing is happening in this case.

Yet, I am saddened. I liked David Carradine and I liked his work. It is unfortunate that he had to come to any sort of an end now ... and this one so apparently accidental. He was an icon, one of the last, for a generation that sought non-violent means to engage against war and violence. Kung Fu as a successful TV series (1972-75) was our generation's last bow before we tripped over our feet on the disco floor a few years later and quickly evolved into the "Me Generation" ... a transition many of us never emerged from as material things gradually replaced our higher ideals. Carradine's "Caine" was the new messiah for the Aquarian Age arriving, sadly, just a bit too late.

There is no question that this is a PREDICTION FULFILLED ... and that it has been fulfilled eleven months early as this was intended for May 2010. That does not mean another famous actor (or actress) might not go David Carradine one better between now and next year's vector, considering the times we are now living in. But the controversy that has been stirred up by the kinky and disturbing (to some) nature of his "suicide" is unlike anything I have seen happen since at least the AEA death of INXS singer Michael Hutchence in 1997.

I am disturbed by this death for another reason: it is yet another example of 2010 pushing through to 2009. As it is, I am close to calling the North Korean and Chinese crises that have occurred since mid-February as at least a partially fulfilled prediction ... and early by a year. Too many more of these earlybird events fulfilling 2010 predictions and we will find ourselves "crashing and burning" before summer 2009 is over ... with several billion of us dead by the end of 2009 and hundreds of millions of survivors suffering such unbelievable horror in 2010 at the hands of their fellow human beings that they will envy those who died by war, plague, and natural disasters.

FOXSexpert: Autoerotic Asphyxiation: Dabbling with Death

Monday, June 08, 2009

David Carradine was found hanged naked in The Bangkok Hotel in Thailand. It is strongly believed that he died accidentally while carrying out the potentially deadly sex game, autoerotic asphyxiation, although murder theories also abound.Was it suicide, murder, or a sex game gone wrong? This is the question Bangkok police are asking in the death of 72-year-old actor David Carradine. With his naked body found in a hotel closet, one rope tied around his neck, another around his genitals, one Thai forensic scientist suggested accidental suffocation during autoerotic asphyxiation may have been the cause of death.

Regardless of whether this was the actual cause of Carradine’s death, it does bring attention to this potentially deadly form of sex play. Also known as scarfing or terminal sex, erotic asphyxiation involves temporarily cutting off one’s oxygen supply to heighten sexual sensations during climax. The potential price to be paid for such breath play is serious, as in death and brain damage. Naturally, one has to ask: Who would dare dabble with death in achieving sexual satisfaction? And why?

Practitioners say it makes for a much more intense orgasm. The people who engage in such activity feel like they're having a thrilling "high" while having sex with themselves. For couples, the power play, role playing, and trust components are a turn on — they love the feeling of being dominated, and the comfort of being with someone with whom they feel safe.

While it should go without saying, it can’t be stressed enough — this is one sex act you want to steer clear of. There is no “safe” way to restrict blood flow. While you can try to minimize the risks in making the practices involved “safer,” there is no way that suffocation or strangulation does not put an individual at risk of cardiac arrest.

Should this occur, the chance of resuscitation is slight, even with the best of help. Cutting off blood supply to the brain can induce cerebral anoxia, oxygen deficiency to the brain, resulting in death or tissue damage.

Second US Sub, Non-Nuclear, Sinks With All Hands
in US Territorial Waters

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/24/09, PRESENTATION POSTED: 12/27/10 -- As 2010 winds down to a close, it is important that as many loose ends as possible be tied up in the days ahead, which includes predictions from the list at the bottom of this page which appeared on the Second Home page on December 24, 2009, that have not yet been posted in the customary manner (like this, in other words).

This is yet another of a number of sub-related or ship-related accidents, disasters, or military clashes that have, thus far, failed to materialise despite all of the many base 7 indications favouring such incidents. This one was to have occurred in May/June 2010. Again, time may still tell in the months ahead.

New Quagmire for the US in Northern Lebanon

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 11/10/08 -- A new quagmire develops in northern Lebanon similar to Iraq and Afghanistan. After a brief but intense bombing campaign by air of Shi'a and Hezbollah sites, US troops are introduced into northern Lebanon in June 2010 to support Lebanon's Sunni government and Salafist forces against the Shi'a Alawite factions, Hezbollah, and Syrian troops. It is impossible at this point to know if Israel will also be drawn into this new conflict. This situation will become problematic in December 2011 or January 2012 when the great Middle East War is renewed after months of a Russian-Iranian blockade of the Persian Gulf.

"New World Order" Officially Established, With Capitals in
Washington DC, London, and Rome

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 2/23/09 -- Whatever the actual name of the organisation may be, it will be no secret that it is indeed the "New World Order." Public and media acknowledgement of the establishment of the new world organisation will occur with considerable fanfare in June 2010 at a ribbon-cutting ceremony outside The Guildhall in London.

Although professing to be a global entity, the actual member states will be in Europe, North America, the Arab Middle East (united under one Arab leader), India, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and key nations with European ties in South America such as Argentina. North Africa (Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya), South Africa, the Russian Federation, most of the former Soviet Union, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, and other East Asian states will be major trading partners all dealing with a universal currency: the euro. Thus, even if China will not be a political member of the New World Order, its economy will be the same as the New World Order's. In this respect, nearly all nations of the earth will be linked together by a common currency.

However, there will be nations refusing to join, many which will consider the NWO as an adversary. Among these will be nations such as Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Mongolia, North Korea, Indonesia, Muslim East and Central African states, certain nations in Central and South America, and others.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Dies Suddenly From
"Natural Causes" or Is
Assassinated

 

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/24/09, PRESENTATION POSTED: 4/20/10 -- Although an assassination seemss less and less likely to occur at this writing, it was listed on one of my predictions text files long before it was posted on the Second Home page back in December 2009. Due to Hillary Clinton's longtime identification with New York as senator, her comparisons by others to the late Robert F Kennedy, and using the senatorial seat as a springboard during the presidential election of 2008, she remains linked to Bobby Kennedy's June 1968 assassination, and thus has an assassination vector of June 2010. If it happens, I would suspect a Muslim terrorist working for Al Qaeda since Kennedy's assassin was a Palestinian man named Sirhan Sirhan. Likewise, by comparisons being drawn between Barack Obama and Martin Luther King during the 2008 campaign, he became identified with April 1968 and King's assassination, thus his April 2010 vector. It may well be that we will see a close call or anti-Hillary sentiment building during the June 2010 vector instead ... similar to what we are seeing now with Obama during his assassination vector of April 2010.

However, "natural causes" also remains a distinct posibility for Hillary Clinton, similar to the questionable deaths of actress Brittany Murphy and pop singer Michael Jackson. It will be mysterious and the cause questionable during the opening weeks of the medical investigation.

Both Hillary and Obama face a second, more difficult, and more dangerous vector for assassination during the closing months of 2012.

 

  Giffords continues remarkable progress after bullet to the brain

Gabrielle Giffords is recovering from a head shot injury

UpperMichigansSource.com

01.13.2011 at 7:44 AM

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — It looks like Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is one of the lucky ones. Few people who take a bullet to the brain — just 10 percent — survive such a devastating wound. Yet doctors have reported the critically injured woman has been making steady progress each day since she was wounded last weekend.

Then Wednesday night, President Barack Obama made the dramatic announcement that the congresswoman had opened her eyes for the first time. If all goes well, she may be "out of the woods" on Friday, said Dr. Peter Rhee, trauma chief at University Medical Center, who has treated soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It's a far cry from Saturday when a shocked nation braced for the worst for the 40-year-old Arizona congresswoman. Several news outlets erroneously declared her dead soon after the shooting rampage that killed six. Stunned by the day's events, crowds held candlelight vigils outside the hospital and Giffords' Tucson office.

After her surgery, Dr. Richard Carmona, the former surgeon general and family friend who looked at Giffords' brain scans, gave a bleak outlook. "With guarded optimism, I hope she will survive, but this is a very devastating wound," he said. But as the days ticked by, doctors shared signs of improvement even as they cautioned about a long and uncertain path to recovery. There was a glimmer of hope early on: Giffords was able to squeeze a doctor's hand in the emergency room.

By Sunday, her neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Lemole said he was "cautiously optimistic" about her survival. She could follow basic commands when they briefly eased up on her sedation.

Giffords' condition was unchanged Monday, which doctors took as a good sign. There was no further brain swelling. She could raise two fingers of her left hand and even flashed a thumbs-up, doctors reported. The following day, doctors said Giffords was breathing on her own, but still connected to a respirator as a precaution. She was also moving both arms. Doctors gave their most confident prognosis yet: She will survive. Rhee said he was "101 percent" sure she'd pull through. "She has no right to look this good and she does," Lemole said.

As her sedation was scaled back, Giffords became more alert and moved on her own — touching her wounds and fixing her hospital gown. She even scratched her nose, Lemole said. The encouraging news continued as Obama said at a memorial in Tucson that she had opened her eyes, just after he visited her at the hospital.

Gifford's brain

So how did Giffords survive the gunshot wound? The path of the bullet, quick and quality medical care, and a stroke of luck meant the difference between life and death, say her doctors and brain experts. Doctors think the bullet pierced the front of Giffords' head and exited the back, slicing the left side of the brain, which controls speech abilities and muscles on the right side of the body.

Had the bullet damaged both sides of the brain or struck the brain stem, which connects to the spinal cord, the outcome would likely be worse — extensive permanent damage, vegetative state or death.

"So far, she's passed with flying colors of each stage" of her recovery, said neurologist Dr. Marc Nuwer of the University of California, Los Angeles, who is not involved in the congresswoman's treatment. Most gunshot victims are not that fortunate. Several years ago, a Tucson police officer was shot in the head during a chase. His heart was beating when he was rushed to University Medical Center, but doctors couldn't control the bleeding in the brain and he died, Rhee said.

When Giffords arrived at the hospital, doctors first checked to make sure she didn't have any other injuries. They took a brain scan and wheeled her to the operating room in a swift 38 minutes.

The same attack in the desert many miles away from a trauma center may have led to a different ending. "She's just lucky in so many ways," said UCLA's Nuwer. "The breaks have been in her favor. That's not to say they'll continue to be in her favor."It's too early to tell the extent of damage Giffords suffered, but experts say it's rare for people with gunshot wounds to the head to regain all of their abilities. Damage to the left side of the brain can result in memory loss, difficult reading and hand-eye coordination problems. Giffords' doctors have not been able to determine how well she can speak since she still has a breathing tube.

"Her full-time job now for the next year is working on her recovery and rebuilding her life around her disability whatever it may be," said Dr. Stephan Mayer, professor of clinical neurology at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, who has no role in Giffords' care.

Doctors: Brain-injured congresswoman in for long recovery

Gabrielle Giffords: long recovery ahead

By AMANDA LEE MYERS and LAURAN NEERGAARD, Associated Press

Jan 9, 2011 at 9:28 PM PST

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Recovering from a gunshot wound to the head depends on the bullet's path, and while doctors are optimistic about Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' odds, it can take weeks to months to tell the damage. Doctors say the bullet traveled the length of the left side of the Arizona congresswoman's brain, entering the back of the skull and exiting the front. Fortunately, it stayed on one side of her brain, not hitting the so-called "eloquent areas" in the brain's center where such wounds almost always prove fatal.

Importantly, Giffords was responding nonverbally Sunday to simple commands in the emergency room - things like "squeeze my hand." That implies "a very high level of functioning in the brain," said Dr. Michael Lemole of Tucson's University Medical Center, Giffords' neurosurgeon.

Now, her biggest threat is brain swelling. Surgeons removed half of her skull to give the tissues room to expand without additional bruising, Lemole said. That bone is being preserved and can be reimplanted once the swelling abates, a technique the military uses with war injuries, added his colleague and trauma surgeon Dr. Peter Rhee.

Adding to Giffords' good prospects is that paramedics got her to the operating room in 38 minutes, her doctors said. Now she is being kept in a medically induced coma, deep sedation that rests her brain. It requires a ventilator, meaning she cannot speak. Doctors periodically lift her sedation to do tests and said she continues to respond well to commands.

The brain's left side does control speech abilities and the movement and sensation of the body's right side, Lemole noted. But he wouldn't speculate on lasting damage, saying, "we've seen the full gamut" in such trauma.

Gabrielle Giffords shooting injury explained

That's the mystery of brain injury: There's no way to predict just how much disability a wound that traverses multiple regions will leave, because our neural connections are so individual. "The same injury in me and you could have different effects," said Dr. Bizhan Aarabi, chief of neurotrauma at the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center, who has long studied penetrating brain injuries.

"The belief is if you get shot in the head, you're dead, but it isn't like that," agreed the University of Miami's Dr. Ross Bullock, chief of neurotrauma at Jackson Memorial Hospital. He cared for a man shot in the head with an AK-47 who two years later is back to work full-time and 'a normal person.' "Every patient is an individual and more so with a gunshot than anything else," he said.

There are few statistics, but doctors agree that well over 90 percent of gunshot wounds to the head are fatal. Aarabi cited his own study of 600 Maryland cases that found 95 percent were dead before arriving at the hospital.

Survivors have something in common with Giffords, Aarabi said: A good "Glasgow coma score," a way to measure responsiveness, upon arriving at the hospital. That pre-surgery outlook is important because doctors can't reverse the bullet's damage, just remove fragments to fight infection and swelling. Giffords' surgeons said they didn't have to remove a lot of dead brain tissue.

The amount of disability depends on how much damage is done to what brain region. A bullet that crosses into both sides, or hemispheres, can leave extensive lasting damage. That's what happened with James Brady, President Ronald Reagan's press secretary, who was left with slurred speech and uses a wheelchair after being shot during the 1981 assassination attempt on Reagan.

In contrast, one of neurology's most famous cases was Phineas Gage who in 1848 survived a 3-foot iron rod blasting into his skull but suffered personality changes from damage to the prefrontal cortex.

It can take weeks to tell the extent of damage, and months of intense rehabilitation to try to spur the brain's capacity to recover. In addition, more than half of survivors go on to suffer seizures and need anti-epilepsy medication, Miami's Bullock said.

"We talk about recovery in months to years," said Griffords' surgeon Lemole.

Arizona congresswoman shot in the head -- Hospital 'optimistic' about Giffords; at least 5 dead, including a child

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

Associated Press

Jan. 8, 2011, 6:41PM

TUCSON, Ariz. — Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head Saturday by a gunman who opened fire outside a grocery store during a meeting with voters, killing a federal judge and four others in a rampage that rattled the country and left politicians fearful for their safety. “It is a tragedy for Arizona, and a tragedy for our entire country,” President Barack Obama declared.

Giffords was among at least 10 people wounded, and the hospital said her outlook was optimistic as she was responding to commands from doctors despite having a bullet go through her head. The death toll included a 9-year-old girl, a federal judge, and a staffer for the Democratic congresswoman.

The reaction to the shooting rippled across the country as Americans were aghast at the sight of such a violent attack on a sitting member of Congress. The shooting cast a pall over the Capitol as politicians of all stripes denounced the shooting as a horrific and senseless act of violence. Capitol police asked members of Congress to be more vigilant about security in the wake of the shooting, and some politicians expressed hope that the killing spree serves as a wakeup call at a time when the political climate has become so emotionally charged.

Giffords, 40, is a three-term moderate Democrat who narrowly won re-election in November against a tea party candidate as conservatives across the country sought to throw her from office over her support of the health care law. Her office in Tucson was vandalized in the hours after the House passed the tcoverhaul last March as anger over the law spread across the country.

Mug shot of assassin Jared Lee Loughner

Police say the shooter was in custody, and was identified by people familiar with the investigation as Jared Loughner, 22. Pima County Sheriff’s officials said he used a 9 mm pistol to carry out the shooting spree. U.S. officials who provided his name to the AP spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release it publicly. His exact motivation was not clear, but a former classmate described Loughner as a pot-smoking loner who had rambling beliefs about the world. Federal law enforcement officials were poring over versions of a MySpace page that belonged to Jared Loughner and over a YouTube video published weeks ago under an account “Classitup10” and linked to him. The MySpace page, which was removed within minutes of the gunman being identified by officials, included a mysterious “Goodbye friends” message published hours before the shooting and exhorted his friends to “Please don’t be mad at me.”

In one of several Youtube videos, which featured text against a dark background, Loughner described inventing a new U.S. currency and complained about the illiteracy rate among people living in Giffords’ congressional district in Arizona. “I know who’s listening: Government Officials, and the People,” Loughner wrote. “Nearly all the people, who don’t know this accurate information of a new currency, aren’t aware of mind control and brainwash methods. If I have my civil rights, then this message wouldn’t have happen (sic).”

U.S. District Judge John Roll was one of the dead. G
