Chinese Invasion of Japan

 

China attacks Japan by air

 

NEW PREDICTION: 9/6/14 -- In September 1931, the imperial forces of Japan invaded Manchuria. Some historians are of the opinion that this action was the true beginning of World War II, not the Spanish Civil War, Hitler's invasion of Poland, or the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It is possible that 84 (7 x 12) years later, in September 2015, China will pull "the old switcheroo" and invade Japan! That would almost certainly start World War III in the Pacific theater without a doubt.

Bombing Or Other Terrorist Attack in London

 

Bombing in London

 

NEW PREDICTION: 1/10/15 -- I must be entirely frank: from a base 7 perspective, there was absolutely nothing on the radar for a terrorist attack to occur in Paris this month! Nothing! That is why there is no prediction for such an event ... there is no base 7 precedent on this year's timeline. I have predicted that there will be terror attacks in Paris several times in the past, but none of these datings saw such events or, in a few cases, planned terror attacks were thwarted by police before they could happen.

However, there are base 7 precedents for terror attacks in Athens and in London for this year. There was a terrorist bombing in Athens forty-two (6 x 7) years ago in August 1973. There was also a bombing in London the following month ... in September 1973. In addition, a London cartoonist was shot in the face by a lone terrorist twenty-eight (4 x 7) years ago in July 1987. These influences probably resulted in the eventual terrorist attack against the French cartoonists of the Charlie Hebdoe magazine. But there would have been no way to identify the month (January rather than July, August or September), nor any way to have anticipated the country involved (France in this case). The best one could have done is to have predicted a terror attack somewhere, anywhere in Europe, possibly .. and this would have been a stretch ... involving a cartoonist or group of cartoonists as victims. Of course the dating would have been July-September 2015, not January 2015.

Terrorist attacks are the most difficult events to predict as the element of surprise virtually negates the likelihood that anniversary dates will be chosen or that the action will somehow conform with the base 7 system. Conformation is possible, but not if the terrorists are aware of it!

In any event, make of this what you will ... if it helps in any way. But be wary of a possible bombing attack in London around September 2015. And do not be limited by the possibility of a bombing, it may take any form!

 

3 stabbed at London Tube station in terror attack, police say

By Melissa Gray, CNN | Updated 0213 GMT (1013 HKT) December 6, 2015

CNN)—A man stabbed three people at an east London Tube station Saturday before police subdued him with a stun gun and made an arrest, London's Metropolitan Police said. Police said they were treating the stabbing at Leytonstone station as a terrorist incident. One man sustained serious injuries not considered to be life-threatening, police said. Two others suffered minor injuries. The suspect was taken to a London police station.

Police said they were called just after 7 p.m. to reports of a number of people stabbed at the station and a man threatening others with a knife.

Commander Richard Walton, who leads the Met's Counter Terrorism Command, said: "We are treating this as a terrorist incident."

"I would urge the public to remain calm, but alert and vigilant. The threat from terrorism remains at severe, which means that a terrorist attack is highly likely."

UK faces terrorist threat

Police released no information about the man's identity or possible motive, but the United Kingdom is facing stepped-up threats from ISIS -- especially after British fighter planes began flying sorties against ISIS targets in Syria this week. Intelligence obtained by European security agencies indicates ISIS is aiming to attack the United Kingdom as a follow-up to its attacks in Paris last month, a senior European counterterrorism official told CNN.

The Tube, also called the London Underground, is the city's subway system. It has 270 stations on 11 lines that stretch a total of 250 miles.

In 2005, suicide bombers attacked three Underground trains and a double-decker bus in a coordinated attack that left 52 people dead and more than 770 wounded. A British al Qaeda operative planned the bombings, according to internal al Qaeda documents that surfaced in 2012.

Videos show arrest

Videos posted to YouTube and on Twitter purport to show the aftermath of Saturday's London stabbing. A large pool of blood is on the ground near the exit gates. Several show police confronting a man in the ticket area, near the exit, and yelling, "Drop it! Right now!" They fire a stun gun at the man, who is wearing a gray top, tan pants and a black hat with ear flaps. But the man continues pacing in front of the officers and even lunges at them.

In one video, a woman can be heard saying, "I just want to get out of here." The scene is loud, with voices echoing throughout the station and police repeatedly shouting at people to get back. There is more shouting before a pop is heard, apparently from the stun gun, and the man falls to the ground.



Leytonstone Tube station was closed off this evening

A witness videoed the suspect getting arrested

Someone watching shouts, "Yes! Stupid idiot!" Two police officers roll the man onto his stomach and handcuff him. A man in the crowd shouts, "You ain't no Muslim, bruv! You're no Muslim, bruv! You ain't no Muslim!"

Hours later, the station was still roped off with blue and white police tape and police officers were standing guard outside. Investigators wearing protective clothing occasionally went in and out. Leytonstone is on the Central line, which runs roughly west to east through central London and into the northeastern suburbs. Transport for London, which runs the Underground, shut down a large part of the eastern Central line after the incident.

 

COMMENTS (12/6/15): It would appear that the event below is more of an omen than the actual thing. The actual thing itself appears to be shaping up now. Paris may have only been a warm-up for London and NYC. We'll see. This attack in The Tube is a PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED.

 

London mob attacks trendy cereal cafe

CNNMoney (London) September 28, 2015: 8:57 AM ET

A trendy cereal cafe in east London is trying to get back to business as usual after it was attacked by an angry mob on Saturday night. The large crowd threw paint and smoke bombs at the small restaurant and damaged other businesses in protest against the gentrification of Shoreditch. The neighborhood in the British capital has become a hub for tech startups and hipsters in recent years. Customers and staff inside Cereal Killer Cafe had to run for cover and barricade the doors, said cafe owner Gary Keery.

The crowd, who numbered in the hundreds, carried burning torches and toted plastic pig heads, he said. "The people that have done this, they obviously have a point to prove, but they went about it completely the wrong way," said Keery, who opened the independent restaurant in late 2014 with his twin brother, Alan. They are "protesting against the class war by targeting an independent business," he said. "We're being used as a scapegoat for a bit of publicity." London police said one person was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and one officer suffered a minor injury after being hit by a bottle.

The protest organizers -- who call themselves F**k Parade -- have since been cheering their efforts on Twitter. (CNNMoney has edited the name of the group.) One supporter wrote in a blog: "The Cereal Killer Cafe is a legitimate target for protest as a symbol of the invading hordes that have taken over Shoreditch, driving up rent prices and driving out ordinary people who have lived there for years ... Yes, hipster businesses aren't the actual problem -- capitalism and landlords are -- but it is certainly a good thing that these people were made to feel unwelcome."

Meanwhile, another protestor -- Will Harvey -- wrote an opinion piece for The Guardian newspaper, saying the protest was based on legitimate concerns about poverty in the area. "Many parents in the area suffer the indignity of relying on food banks to feed their children while the new Shoreditch residents can make a successful business selling children's cereal for £5 a bowl."

Owner Gary Keery is undeterred. "We're not going to let the bullies stop us," he said, noting that he has seen more customers coming through his doors since the weekend incident. The cafe reopened promptly on Sunday morning. Keery said the only real damage left is some smeared paint on the outside of the cafe. But a decorating company has already emailed him and offered to repaint.

Attack by US or Israel on Syrian or Iranian Nuclear Facility; The Operation May be a Failure

 

Air strikes on Iran Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/2/14 -- Base 7 dating: September 2015. DESCRIPTION: 1/28/15: I understand that the problem at this time is the Islamic State fighting, conquering, and slaughtering innocents in Syria and Iraq. Meantime, the nation of Iran has done nothing to be attacked for by the West as of yet. Nevertheless, I have to present my base 7 projections based on historical precedent. ISRAEL does have a considerable fear of Iran weaponizing their nuclear materials and creating nuclear warheads to load on missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv and other cities.

In September 1980, due to a similar concern, Israel launched an air strike against the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq. That attempt failed to destroy the facility, but a second attempt in June 1981 was successful. I am projecting that they will do the same thing 35 (5 x 7) years later: this time against a nuclear facility in IRAN. The likeliest target will be the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, although it could be another power plant elsewhere in Iran or on one of its islands. If it goes like 1980, the attack will fail.

It is also possible that this time around, the first attempted strike will be against a new secret nuclear facility near Qusayr in Syria, carried out either by Israel or the United States. If so, it is possible the attack will be successful.

Nuclear Destruction of NYC

 

Nostradamus, Quatrain 6.97 ~

At forty-five degrees the sky will burn, fire approaches the great new city. Instantly
a great flame leaps up, when they want to have proof of the Normans.

 

Nuclear destruction of NYC in September 2015

 

Alois Irlmaier ~

The "Great City" of the United States (NYC) will be destroyed by rockets, and the West Coast will be invaded by Asians,
but they will be beaten back. The Third World War will come, but I cannot predict the year ...

 

NEW PREDICTION: 9/29/13 -- New York City is destroyed by nuclear terrorism or nuclear military/paramilitary attack in September 2015. Whether it will be a terrorist or military attack is uncertain; however, both Nostradamus and Alois Irlmaier seem to have held the belief that an attack on New York would be military. Nostradamus suggests this could be either a missile strike from another country or perhaps a plane carrying a nuclear device or else a rocket-fired atomic warhead. It is possible that Quatrain 6.97 is also prophesying a nuclear threat to the Parisian port city of Marsellies at the time of the attack on NYC. Then again, if the Normans are "the North Men," then it may be Russia that America is awaiting some action by. Alois Irlmaier is quite definite about the city's destruction being a nuclear attack by an unidentified country, probably Russia, with China and North Korea launching additional attacks on the West Coast cities of America. On the other hand, the Seer of Waldviertel insists this will be an act of nuclear terrorism:

 

The Seer of Waldviertel ~

New York is destroyed unexpectedly before this time of war by small explosive devices, that explode very low in the air. The image grows more vivid, becoming like houses blasted apart from a violent storm. In the explosion inferno (the explosion's epicenter or "ground zero"), I saw nothing left standing. It would seem to have occurred around noon (local time). If one considers however, that, in the early summer, it becomes light very early, that could be also in the morning hours. I saw all details clearly and with extraordinary clarity. Here (in Austria), there was yet no war at the time. When news of the destruction was being broadcast on the radio for the first time, I wanted to eat just a trifle (lunch). At the close of the news report, it appeared to be an especially clever act carried out by psychopathic enemies (terrorists?) ...

Regarding the destruction of New York, I saw details that one could never perceive with the eye due to the quickness of the event. It was revealed to me in proper sequence, but in slow motion. I saw this city in all of its detail. There a dark object fell in its course, continually crooking upon itself. I stared intently as this body fell, until it almost crashed to the ground. First it shredded into pieces, dissolving itself as it did this. In this moment I did not yet comprehend what had happened.

The first explosive device exploded some buildings a distance behind a larger building standing with a wide entrance facing the ocean's shore. From the perspective of the Atlantic Ocean, these buildings seemed to be located somewhat to the south behind this larger building.

The buildings did not fall over or implode upon themselves, but rather they became, save for a few, part of the explosion's epicenter (ground zero). They then became pulverized from the ground up. From a distance, they had the appearance of sinking, as if swallowed up by the ground beneath them ...

 

Wolfgang Johannes Bekh on the Waldviertler's vision of NYC ~

Not less obvious he described to me the destruction of New York. He took the wax model of a marzipan (candy) form that was standing on my closet from Ulm, and demonstrated, as if this high format body would be a skyscraper, how the buildings of Manhattan were pulverised from below and getting smaller and smaller at the same time, until they collapse and the area, on which the famous city sky line once rose, becomes flat ground again.

He saw, however, not only the downfall of New York, but also he saw himself with other people of his village standing side by side and commenting on the event. So this is to be the "great revenge" of the terrorists, he heard them say. Certainly, what the Americans had done was not pretty. Even so, for someone to therefore immediately destroy an entire city, that was decidely going too far! So the people spoke.

 

The prospects for NYC are not good after the US goes to war in Syria and Iraq (again). Defeat for America will follow a final victory in the form of the death of Bashar al-Assad or some other enemy (Alus sanguinaire) in the land "between two rivers" (Iraq). In retaliation, it shall be devastated by an alliance of Al Qaeda, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Russia. Yes, Nostradamus does seem to see Saudi Arabia, like modern Iran, becoming a mighty power, perhaps with Russian military aid. There will likely be a shifting in Middle East alliances in the near future, I believe, that will alter our alliances in the region, turning one or two former adversaries into friends and a few current allies into enemies.

For Alois Irlmaier, the nuclear destruction of New York is accompanied by a Chinese/North Korean invasion of the US West Coast (in another prediction he predicts the invasion of Alaska).

When the Waldviertler prophecy of the nuclear destruction of Manhattan by terrorists takes place, however, there is only war in the Middle East and a limited conflict in the Balkans. "War" (World War 3) has not yet reached Austria, which means the Russian blitzkrieg of Central and Western Europe has not yet been launched.

IMPORTANT! WAR BETWEEN TWO MAJOR MIDDLE EAST COUNTRIES, BUT WHO?
Iran vs Turkey and Greece OR Iran vs Saudi Arabia?

 

The Seer of Waldviertel ~

The "total war" with American participation will take place first in Saudi Arabia when the Americans become involved in a great Middle East conflict (Iraq-Syria-ISIS war?); however they will do poorly. Russia will defeat America. Poland will rise against the Russians as an ally of the West. Russia then launches blitzkrieg actions into Germany.

 

Dogfight over desertBombing Saudi oil fields

 

Erna Stieglitz (1894-1965) ~

In summer, probably in the month of July if the OIL REGIONS are already in rather firm Russian hands, will occur the invasion by Russia upon the south and north flanks: against Turkey, Greece, Yugoslavia, and Scandinavia...

 

Daniel 11:2 ~

And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Yawan (Grecia or Saudi Arabia?).

 

NEW PREDICTION: 1/26/15 -- This prediction is not as new as it appears. It has been in my head for some time, but I have not known how to state it plainly. I made a partial effort in April of last year below by predicting a new Syria-Iraq War ... not the current ISIS conflict, which did not exist yet, but an actual war between the government forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and unknown forces or government forces in Iraq. I suggested it might be a war with the Kurds, but since the prediction was made, ISIS took parts of Syria and Iraq, so it might be ISIS that Assad wars with.

The issue I am having is this, and I have been aware of this for a long time now: we will be witnessing the base 7 anniversary of the Iran-Iraq War which began in September 1980 thirty-five (5 x 7) years ago. The conflict lasted for eight years and was as horrendous as the First World War in its use of trench warfare and chemical weapons. The anniversary of the start of this war comes, obviously, in September 2015 ... September of this year. If there is a repeat, it can be a bit sooner or a bit later or right on time.

The question is what "two great rocks" will clash for another long war (assuming that Nostradamus quatrain applies to this situation, it may not and may apply to something else like Christianity vs Islam or something like that). What two nations in the Middle East are likely to go to war in the same way as Iran and Iraq did in 1980? I would hasten to add that it is extremely unlikely the war will last for eight years this time around as World War III will likely be precipitated in part due to the confrontation, and a global war now with today's weapons will not last long.

It may be Iraq and Iran all over again ... but only if ISIS actually takes control of Baghdad including at least 2/3 of the country (Kurd and Sunni portions). It does not appear this can happen any time soon, but by September, who knows?? It may be the Syria-Iraq conflict predicted below. However, there are two other possiblities, both involving IRAN.

One depends on the actions of Turkey. Turkey has the power to be on the right side of history or the wrong side. At the moment any nation that is against ISIS is likely to be on the same side of Iran. But there is another disturbing problem: Iranian-Saudi relations are at an all-time low. Remember what I have written about concerning the King James version of the Bible and the translation of "Yawan" as "Grecia" (Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Turkey). This was the decision of the KJV translators: that Yawan would be written as Grecia. Thus, the King of Persia's war against "Yawan" in Daniel 8 and 11 became a war between Persia (now Iran) and Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Turkey.

But what if the KJV translators were wrong? What if the translation of "Yawan" should have been its secondary meaning: that part of Arabia we now call Saudi Arabia? Could Daniel have been predicting a war between Iran and Saudi Arabia in his chapters 8 and 11? It is entirely possible! And, like Britain and France did during the First World War, the Western alliance (NATO? EU? US?) will come to the aid of Saudi Arabia!

According to the Seer of Waldviertel, the United States will already be at war in a great Middle East conflict when it becomes engaged in another war involving Saudi Arabia. It is predicted by him that at that point the "total war" (World War III) in the Middle East and Europe will begin and the US will lose its part in the conflict at that time. Erna Stieglitz also predicts that Russia will then obtain by military force all of the oil fields of the Middle East.

What is more, from a base 7 perspective, Saudi Arabia's engaging of its air forces in September 2014 on the side of the United States against ISIS in Syria is an echo of the start of its war against the Ottomans in June 1916 during the First World War. In addition, this was when Saudi Arabia allied with Great Britain and France! That was 98 years (7 x 14) years intervening 1916 and 2014. Arabia continued its war against the Ottoman Empire on the side of allies in 1917 and 1918 ... thus we should anticipate continued support from Saudi against ISIS in 2015 and 2016!

It is the only thing that makes sense to me, given the prophecies of The Seer of Waldviertel, Erna Stieglitz, and the Old Testament prophet Daniel, with an overlooked translation of "Yawan" linking Daniel to the other two.

In any event we must watch carefully Turkey, Greece, and Saudi Arabia in relationship to the already horrible warfare ongoing in the Middle East. One cannot entirely dispense with the idea that both "Grecia" (Turkey and Greece) and Saudi Arabia will be attacked by Iran.

 

THIS IS NOT A FULFILLED PREDICTION ... YET! But this region bears watching and, if the Saudi and Iranian conflict in Yemen is not resolved soon, it will become the war of the "two great rocks" prophesied by Nostradamus, the start of the "total war" foreseen by the Seer of Waldviertel, the US-Russian war for dominance of the Arabian and Persian Gulf oil fields predicted by Erna Stieglitz, and one aspect of the mega-confrontation envisioned by the Old Testament prophet Daniel between the king of Persia and the realm of Yawan.

Nostradamus, Quatrain 5.25 ~

The Arab prince, Mars, Sun, Venus, Leo,
The reign of the Church by sea will succumb:
Towards Persia very nearly a million,
Turkey, Egypt, the true serpent invades.

Nostradamus, Quatrain 1.87 ~

Earthshaking fire from the center of the earth
Will cause the towers of the new city to tremble:
Two great rocks will war for a long time,
Then Arethusa will redden a new river.

It is unlear whether peace talks now being called for by the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, if any are held, will halt the fighting and Saudi bombardments, and if so, for how long.

Consider this CNN commentary by Alex Vatanka (below) to be a FINAL WARNING BY ME that this proxy military confrontation between Iran and Saudi Arabia, if it is not stopped, WILL BECOME THE FULL-BLOWN WAR BETWEEN THESE TWO as I predicted and also as prophesied by others many years ago. IF SO, then World War III in Europe and on the rest of the planet will not be far away !!!!

YOU MAY NOW, FINALLY AND UTTERLY, BE WATCHING EXTREMELY DANGEROUS PROPHECY IN THE MAKING !!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Shadow boxing: Will Saudi Arabia and Iran take fight into the open?

By Alex Vatanka

Updated 1509 GMT (2209 HKT) April 21, 2015

(CNN) Relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia have always been thorny, but rarely has the state of affairs been as venomous as it is today. Tehran and Riyadh each point to the other as the main reason for much of the turmoil in the Middle East. In its most recent incarnation, the Iranian-Saudi conflict by proxy has reached Yemen in a spiral that both sides portray as climatic.

For Riyadh and its regional allies, the Saudi military intervention in Yemen -- "Operation Decisive Storm" -- is the moment the Sunni Arab nation finally woke up to repel the expansion of Shia-Iranian influence. For Tehran and its regional allies -- including the Houthi movement in Yemen -- Saudi Arabia's actions are in defense of a retrogressive status quo order that is no longer tenable. And yet both sides have good reasons to want to stop the Yemeni crisis from spiraling out of control and evolving into an unwinnable war.

Syria, Iraq and now Yemen

Alex Vatanka, CNN commentatorWhen Iranian President Hassan Rouhani was elected in June 2013, he pledged to reach out to Riyadh. He was up front and called Tehran's steep deterioration of relations with the Saudis over the last decade as one of the principal burdens on Iranian foreign policy. From Lebanon and Afghanistan to Pakistan and the Gaza Strip, the Iranian-Saudi rivalry and conflict through proxy has been deep and costly.

And yet despite Rouhani's open pledge, profound differences over Syria and Iraq in particular have kept Riyadh and Tehran apart. But if the questions of Syria and Iraq prevented a pause in hostilities, the Saudi military intervention in Yemen since late March has all but raised the stakes to unprecedentedly dangerous levels. Unlike in Syria and in Iraq, the Saudi military is now directly battling it out with Iranian-backed rebels in Yemen.

Alex Vatanka

While Riyadh no doubt exaggerates Tehran's role in the Yemen crisis, its fingerprints are nonetheless evident. "Iran provides financial support, weapons, training and intelligence to Houthis," Gerald Feierstein, a U.S. State Department official and former Yemen ambassador, told a Congressional hearing last week. "We believe that Iran sees opportunities with the Houthis to expand its influence in Yemen and threaten Saudi and Gulf Arab interests."

The Iranians find the charges biased and point to the Saudi airstrikes in Yemen as a much bigger case of meddling in a neighbor's affairs. In Iran, the cue came from the country's top authority, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has been unusually blunt. He tweeted: "Despite disputes, the Saudis used to display composure [with] us but now inexperienced youngsters have come to power & replaced composure [with] barbarism." Three days after Khamenei's speech, Iran suspended religious pilgrimages to Mecca. This came as news broke about two Iranian teenage boys who had reportedly been sexually assaulted by the police while visiting Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, anti-Saudi protests have been staged in a number of Iranian cities.

Khamenei's speech opened the floodgate of anti-Saudi statements. The voices of hardline figures in Tehran have been the most agitated. General Ahmad Purdastan, the commander of the Iranian ground forces, taunted the Saudis. "Beware of the day when firecrackers explode in Riyadh," Purdastan said, in a not-so-subtle warning. But it was not only the hawks that came out swinging against the Saudis. Ayatollah Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a former president and arguably Iran's most vocal advocate of better Iranian-Saudi relations. called Riyadh's military intervention a "strategic mistake" and urged for a political solution.

Seeking a political solution is Iran's stated aim for the Yemeni crisis, but the prospects of such an effort succeeding are slim. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has provided a four-point plan: to get a ceasefire, to encourage the provision of humanitarian aid, to promote political dialogue among warring Yemeni parties, and to achieve the formation of an inclusive government. But the Iranian proposal also asks for an end to Saudi airstrikes. As Zarif put it, "Iran and Saudi Arabia need to talk, but we cannot talk to determine the future of Yemen."

A plain choice for Riyadh and Tehran

Saudi planes pound Houthi rebel positions around YemenThe Saudis have thus far ignored the Iranian proposal. Meanwhile, the Houthi leadership has welcomed the plan. As one of its leaders said, "In Iran's plan, unacceptable solutions do not exist."

Not only do the Saudis not have any faith in any Iranian-drafted political package that is welcomed by the Houthis, but Riyadh believes that the international disposition favors it. Saudi Arabia was elated by the U.N. Security Council vote on 14 April that condemned the Houthi movement. Only Russia abstained.

But a solution to the Yemeni crisis will not come from the U.N. The U.N. can provide a cover for Riyadh's military intervention, but it cannot secure it a military win. This leaves Riyadh with a fundamental question about how far it is willing to take its fight in Yemen. Saudi airstrikes alone will not finish off the Houthi movement and it allies in the Yemeni armed forces. It requires ground troops on a huge scale. Riyadh has tried hard to muster a military coalition that is willing to dispatch ground troops but its effort has so far been nothing short of a fiasco.

The Pakistanis most famously turned down the Saudi request and let it be known that Yemen is a quagmire they can do without. Instead, Islamabad has asked Iran to push the Houthis for a political compromise that Riyadh can live with. The Turks were enthusiastic at first about stopping the Houthis -- but in his visit to Tehran last week, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made it clear that he has prioritized Iranian-Turkish trade relations over rivalry in Yemen, and emphasized a political solution for the Yemeni conflict. The Egyptians and the Jordanians are still supportive of Saudi efforts and claim publicly to be open to the idea of deploying military forces to assist Riyadh in Yemen. But whether they will go through with it is another matter. Egypt has a long list of problems of its own, including a bloody counter-terrorism campaign in Sinai that it cannot afford to lose, but also an eastern border with lawless Libya that is increasingly a new front in Cairo's fight against jihadists. It is hard to see how Egyptian General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi can commit troops to a Yemeni campaign that is not a direct threat to Egypt's security. The same kind of domestic realities, including the threat from ISIS, will also prevent Jordan from any significant contribution to Saudi military efforts in Yemen.

These hard realities leave Riyadh with two options. It can look for or even mediate a political solution that will invariably include the same Houthis that Riyadh is attacking today. Alternatively, given the absence of willing states to contribute ground troops, Riyadh will have to contemplate a full-scale invasion of Yemen. That is scenario that is very hard to contemplate. The Iranians too are faced with stark choices. It is beyond Tehran's ability to tame the Yemeni crisis. As tempting as it might be for Tehran to see the Saudis bleed in Yemen, the danger of this conflict further fuelling sectarian tensions in the Middle East will undermine broader regional Iranian interests. A political compromise that both Riyadh and Tehran and their respective Yemeni allies can live with seems to be the only option that is not cataclysmic.

Syria-Iraq War Officially Begins

 

Nostradamus, Quatrain 1.87 ~

Earthshaking fire from the center of the earth will cause tremors around the new city:
Two great rocks long time will make war, then Arethusa will redden a new river.

 

Smoke rises over Saif Al Dawla district in Aleppo, Syria

 

Nostradamus, Quatrain 6.33 ~

His last hand through the bloody Alus, his protection by sea will not be guaranteed: Between
two rivers, dreading the military hand, the black and angry one will make him repent.

 

Syrian-Iraq War

 

NEW PREDICTION: 4/14/14 -- Nostradamus warns that a conflct in Syria led by a figure he calls Alus sanguinaire ("bloody Alus") will spread into a Middle East country well-known for its two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates. This can only be modern-day Iraq. Therefore at some point Syria will be at war with Iraq. Using the Iran-Iraq War precedent from September 1980, it would make sense that this stage of the conflict would begin 35 (5 x 7) years later in September 2015. A predicted aerial attack on Iraq or Iraqi Kurds by Syrian fighter jets and missiles in August 2014 may be one of several incidents and clashes that may precede and eventually trigger this conflict.

In his Arethusa quatrain, Nostradamus seems to date the war as happening around the same time as the nuclear destruction of Manhattan which, as shown below, just happens to also have a September 2015 dating. If he can be believed, "two rocks" will already have been at war a long time, which could be a reference to almost anything: the US-sponsored wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere since the September 2001 attacks on The World Trade Center, or the wars in Libya and Syria that resulted from "Arab Spring." But at some point Arethusa will "redden a new river." This may link with "Alus" and possibly Bashar al-Assad or, as some have suggested, could mean Ares (Mars, god of War) and the USA.

New England Devastated by Hurricane

The worst hurricane since "the Great New England Hurricane of 1938" plows into New York City, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire at nearly 200 mph, killing nearly 1,000 people. Tidal surges may reach as high as 50 to 150 feet. Metropolitan areas may be completely under water. The long-term impact on the northeastern US region will be much worse than either Katrina or Sandy.

Comet Like Blazing Star, Nearly As Bright As Limb of Sun

 

Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.41 ~

La grande etoile par sept jours bruslera, nuée fera deux soleils apparoir:
Le gros matin toute nuit hurlera, quand grand pontife changera de terroir.

The great star will burn for seven days, the cloud will cause two suns to appear:
The great mastiff will howl all night, when the great pontiff will change country.

 

The Great Comet of 1882

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/27/14 -- Base 7 dating: September 2015.

This may be the same visitor Nostradamus writes about as being "the great star" that will burn for seven nights when the Pope is forced to flee the Vatican. I am not saying it will be Planet X: I simply do not know. The precedent for this celestial visitor is the Great September Comet of 1882, which was the brightest comet in recorded history. It was easily seen in broad daylight and nearly as bright as the sun's limb. The magnitude was spectacular and frightful, between -15 and -20. For reference, the full moon has an apparent magnitude of -12.6. It is only a matter a time before we see another comet as bright, and if 2015 is not the year it may well be 2022 or 2029.

Three other bright naked-eye comets followed The Great September Comet of 1882 on the same base 7 timeline: The Great January Comet of 1910 (aka The Sunset Comet) and Comet Halley 28 (4 x 7) years later in 1910 and the much-hyped comet that fizzled, Comet Kohoutek 91 (7 x 13) years later in 1973-74. There have been many other comets that fizzled out since then, most notably Comet ISON and Comet Elenin. But remember: if Kohoutek, Elenin, or ISON had delivered they would have all been "great comets." Also, 112 (7 x 16) years later, there was Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 which, although not visible to the naked eye, did put on a spectacular show in space when it broke into large fragments and impacted the planet Jupiter. We had all better hope that if there is a major 1882-type comet in 2015 that it is a comfortable distance away from our planet!

IS A "GREAT COMET" ON THE WAY?

What's Up in Space: Comet Catalina previews a bright future

Scott Sutherland
Meteorologist/Science Writer

The Weather Network

Wednesday, August 19, 2015, 3:02 PM - A celestial wanderer gives us a preview of a potentially bright future, a violent origin for one of Saturn's rings and The Martian visits NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It's What's Up In Space!

Comet Catalina glows green

A first-time visitor to the solar system is getting closer to its one-and-only swing by the inner planets, and even though it's still farther away from the Sun than the planet Mars, it is already showing up beautifully in telescopes.

Spotted on October 31, 2013, by astronomers with the Catalina Sky Survey, it was originally thought to be an usual asteroid - quite large (estimated at 20 km wide) and on a very long orbit around the Sun. It was assigned the provisional name 2013 US10 and was watched closely in the nights that followed, to narrow down its orbit.

Within six days of observations, Don Yeomans and Paul Chodas, of NASA's Near-Earth Object Program Office, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory realized that it was, in fact, a comet, and redesignated it C/2013 US10 (Catalina).

Subsequently, they found that it's not just a long-period comet, but is on a million-year journey through the solar system after being nudged out of the Oort cloud by some ancient encounter, and this will actually be its very first (and likely only) swing through the inner solar system.

Comet Catalina glows green

As of today, August 19, 2015, Comet C/2013 US10 (Catalina) is still quite far away - almost the same distance from us as the Sun - and at its closest on January 17, 2016, it will have passed between the orbits of Earth and Venus, coming to within around 108 million kilometres.

According to the comet catalogue maintained by Seiichi Yoshida, C/2013 US10 (Catalina) appears to be on track to become visible with the naked eye by mid-November. Images of the comet showing up from astrophotographers should become better as time goes on, and as it will cross over into the northern sky by mid-December, it could be an excellent comet to check out from one of the many Dark Sky preserves across Canada.

 

COMMENTS (8/27/15): As has often been the case since the dawn of the 21st Century, virtually all the spectacular naked eye comets have been viewable only in the southern hemisphere. Every time a potential "great comet" has headed towards earth, promising to be a northern hemisphere wonder, it has either failed to brighten as anticipated or disintegrated. There has not been a decent major comet for viewing with the unaided eye since Hyakutake in 1996 and Hale-Bopp in 1997. McNaught, a "great comet," briefly was seen in the northern hemispehere in January 2007, but it was so close to the horizon and setting sun you had to be in the right places to see it. Of course it put on a truly grand show in the southern hemisphere (what else is new?). Later in 2007, in time for Halloween, was Comet Holmes. This has been the only naked eye comet in the North easy enough to find since Hale-Bopp. Still, even that comet was much weaker than either Hyakutake or Hale-Bopp, but was a much more decent binocular object. Otherwise, all the promising northern comets like Elenin, ISON, PAN-STARRS, and others have all wimped out.

So take this news of yet another promising northern hemisphere comet to come with a grain of salt .. or a grain of comet dust. We will, of course, keep tabs on this new guest, just in case.

Russia Tests Terrible New Space Weapons by Targeting the Moon, Damaging its Surface

 

Moon partially destroyed by Russian weapons or asteroid impact

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/2/14 -- Base 7 dating: September-October 2015. DESCRIPTION: 1/29/15: People may see a new and different "man in the moon" after September or October 2015 when Russian military space stations or satellites target the moon with new laser-type weapons. Part of the "dark side of the Moon" may even become permanently visible to the naked eye.

Of course, it is also possible that the Moon will be an early casualty of the asteroid swarm that may impact our planet in 2016. I know of one individual who had a frightening dream over ten years ago of the Moon hanging in space in three bloody red fragments.

A Major American or Australian Female Model or Actress Hangs Herself or Drowns While on Drugs

 

Eun-ju Lee and Whitney HoustonJinsil Choi and ????

TREND: 2005 begins, Eun-ju Lee; 2012 begins, Whitney Houston (both pictured at left). 2007 continues, Anna Nicole Smith, U;Nee and Dabin Jung (not pictured); 2014 continues, Cassandra Hensley, Charlotte Dawson, L'Wren Scott and Peaches Geldof (not pictured). 2008 continues, Jinsil Choi; 2015 continues, ???? (both pictured at right).

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/27/14 -- Base 7 dating: October 2015.

Whitney Houston kicked off the pattern on February 11, 2012 when she was found drowned in a bathtub in her hotel room.

This was similar to the February 2005 hanging suicide of major South Korean actress Eun-ju Lee which also established a trend. Two years after her highly publicized suicide, in 2007, two more South Korean females, one a pop singer, U;Nee, the other a well-known actress, Dabin Jung, hanged themselves.

Following American female celebrity Houston's trend begun 2012, there was the heroin death of TV personality and former model Peaches Geldof, daughter of Paula Yates, and also the drowning and heroin overdose death of Playboy model Cassandra Lynn Hensley. In addition, one American former model and fashion designer, L'Wren Scott, and one Australian top model and TV presenter, Charlotte Dawson, hanged themselves. Thus, the two hangings this time were not South Koreans, but American and Australian.

All four happened each month of January, February, March, and April. This nearly matched the three suicides of January and February 2007: US model and TV personality Anna Nicole Smith (drugs overdose), U;Nee and Dabin Jung (hanging), with a fourth hanging suicide attempt by pop singer Britney Spears stopped in progress.

The South Korean trend took its most famous turn in October 2008 when the very major actress and model of that country, Jinsil Choi, committed suicide by hanging. Likewise, if the current trend continues, October 2015 will likely see the hanging or drugs/drowning death of a very famous American model or actress (or both). There is a 1 in 6 chance, however, that the victim may be Australian.

This would be someone as famous or MORE FAMOUS than Whitney Houston.

 

Bobbi Kristina Brown dies at 22

Lisa Respers France, CNN

Updated 0344 GMT (1044 HKT) July 27, 2015

Atlanta (CNN)—Two days before she was found face-down in the bathtub at her home outside Atlanta in January, it seemed like Bobbi Kristina Brown's career might have been picking up. "Let's start this career up&&moving OUT to TO YOU ALLLL quick shall we !?!???!" she said in an enthusiastic tweet. It's not clear what projects she may have been working on, but they won't be completed now.

Brown, the daughter of late superstar Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, died Sunday at the age of 22, a representative of the Houston family said in a statement. "Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family," the statement said. "She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

She was treated in a hospital and then a hospice facility in the nearly six months since she was found unresponsive and not breathing in the bathtub at her Roswell home on January 31 -- nearly three years to the day after her mother accidentally drowned in a bathtub in Beverly Hills, a victim of the vices she had fought for much of her career.

As rumors flew, family took sides

Brown was placed in a medically induced coma, relatives have said. Rumors flew about her condition, with family members and loved ones taking sides in the drama. In April, her maternal grandmother, Cissy Houston, said Bobbi Kristina had "global and irreversible brain damage."

"Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me," Houston said. "We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time." The statement was released days after her father and Whitney Houston's former husband, R & B singer Bobby Brown, told an audience in Dallas, "I can say today, Bobbi is awake. She's watching me."

On June 24, Bobbi Kristina's aunt, Pat Houston, announced that her niece had been moved to a hospice facility. "Despite the great medical care at numerous facilities, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition has continued to deteriorate," Houston's statement said. "As of today, she has been moved into hospice care. We thank everyone for their support and prayers. She is in God's hands now."

Many had worried the young woman was haunted by some of the same demons as her mother.

Love, grief and family tensions

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown married in 1992 and welcomed Bobbi Kristina in 1993. The little girl was doted upon by both her parents and Houston often brought the youngster on stage. Houston told Rolling Stone magazine in 1993 that "having Bobbi Kristina ... I could never do anything that could top that. There's been nothing more incredible in my life than having her."

"God knows, I have been in front of millions and millions of people, and that has been incredible, to feel that give-take thing," Houston said. "But, man, when I gave birth to her and when they put her in my arms, I thought: 'This has got to be it. This is the ultimate.' I haven't experienced anything greater."

Mother and daughter grew even closer after Houston's divorce from Brown in 2007. Houston and Bobbi Kristina performed together on ABC's "Good Morning America" in 2009, singing "My Love Is Your Love" in Central Park.

After Houston's death on February 11, 2012 -- an accidental drowning in a bathtub, a coroner ruled, with heart disease and cocaine use named as contributing factors -- there was a great deal of concern for Brown, who was 18 at the time. She opened up to Oprah Winfrey during an interview in March 2012 about how she was coping with the loss of her mother. "No one knows what an amazing spirit she was," Brown told Winfrey. "She wasn't only a mother, she was a best friend." Brown said her grief came in waves, but that she still communicated with her mom. "I can hear her voice telling me to keep moving, baby, I gotcha," she said. "She's always with me. I can always feel her with me."

Brown was joined in her grief by Nick Gordon, who was taken in by Houston when he was 12 years old and who was raised alongside Bobbi Kristina. Gordon and Brown became romantically involved after Houston's death, and tensions between the Gordon and Houston families over the relationship were part of the storyline on Lifetime's short-lived reality show "The Houstons: On Our Own."

There was speculation that Brown may have suffered from some of the same problems as her parents (both Houston and Brown had documented issues with substance abuse) after she appeared to be intoxicated during some scenes of the reality show. Those concerns intensified in July 2014 after a picture was posted on her Instagram account showing a young woman who looked like Brown appearing to be smoking from a bong. The image had made the media rounds two years earlier. Brown later denied that she posted the photo and tweeted that it was done by someone attempting to tarnish her image.

Brown and Gordon announced their engagement in 2013 and she took to her Facebook page to clear up the misconception that he was her adopted brother. Far from being bothered by the relationship were she still alive, Brown said her mother had predicted they would fall in love. "People need to seriously stop judging my relationship," Brown wrote. "Pretty sure it's my own decision who I want to be with."

Criminal investigation

It was Gordon and a male friend who discovered Brown unconscious in her townhome. While Brown called Gordon her husband (she had tweeted a picture believed to be of their hands wearing wedding rings with the hashtag #HappilyMarried) there is no court record of a marriage between the two and family members say the couple was never legally wed. Police had been called to Brown's home January 23 after someone reported a fight there, but no one answered the door and officers found no evidence of an altercation, a Roswell police spokeswoman said.

After Brown was found in the bathtub, authorities launched a criminal investigation. A family friend said police questioned Gordon about the bruising on Brown's chest and said he told them it was a result of his giving her CPR.

Gordon gave an emotional and sometime explosive interview that aired in March on the "The Dr. Phil Show" in which he complained of being denied access to Brown. "I can't lose Krissy, I just can't," he cried. The talk show host persuaded Gordon to enter a treatment program for substance abuse and in April his attorney, Randy Kessler, confirmed Gordon was no longer in rehab.

In June, a civil lawsuit was filed against Gordon in the Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia, alleging that Gordon's behavior "caused, among other things, substantial bodily harm to Brown." It also alleged that since Brown's hospitalization in January, Gordon accessed her bank accounts and stole more than $11,000. Brown was initially taken to North Fulton Hospital and placed in a medically induced coma, and was later transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, where she was on life support in the neuro intensive care unit. In March she was moved to a rehabilitation center.

Despite reports of fighting over her care, on June 19 Bobby Brown said the family was working together on behalf of his daughter. "I am making decisions with (Bobbi Kristina's aunt) Pat Houston and we are working together for the medical care of my daughter," Brown said in a statement.

"Right now we are focused on Bobbi Kristina's medical prognosis and the criminal investigation. These are the priorities for us. Whoever had a hand in causing my daughter's injuries needs to be brought to justice."

Her death cut short the dreams she had of following in her mother's footsteps by pursuing a career in music and acting. In 2012 she made her acting debut on Tyler Perry's TBS show "For Better or Worse." Perry is a close family friend who frequently visited Brown while she was hospitalized.

 

COMMENTS (12/21/15): Well, it was an unusual twist for a prediction of this kind, but it does appear that rather than another major actress or model succumbing in the same manner as Whitney Houston, by drowning, it was indeed her own daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who did. I held off making a positive admission that this was the case until now because the drowning occurred on January 31 ... a good eight-to-nine months earlier than projected. However, her death did not occur until July 26, 2015, a little more than two months before the October 2, 2015 vector (I usually don't give days, only the month and year, since events, when they happen, often are off by a few months anyway, let alone off by the day).

I'm not going to get into the Illuminati/human sacrifice element of her death, I discuss this in detail in my comments on The Celebrity Deaths and Mishaps page. You can read all about it there ... as well as the initial reports of her being found unconscious and unresponsive, and the news of her slipping into a coma and her worsening condition. When that presentation is archived, I'll update the link. In any event, this was a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

Stock Market Crash Dwarfs 2008 Crash; Total Economic Collapse Worldwide

 

A major market crash may be only three or nine months away

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/6/14 -- My apologies. I thought I had this posted on the 2015 page a long time ago. This was predicted by me on my blog's four blood moons article in the section entitled The Third Seal: The Blood Moon of Famine; Economic Collapse. I didn't set a date, although I had it under the coming third blood moon eclipse of April 4, 2015. The only base 7 precedents, however, are October 1929 and October 2008 (the latter which I accurately predicted). Thus, October 2015. Perhaps it will happen six months early .. in April.

 

 

THEY'RE CALLING TODAY "BLACK MONDAY" ... IS IT???

Black Monday: China Stocks Lead Global Collapse

by Breitbart News 24 Aug 2015

The global market crash continued on Monday, starting with China and then continuing around the world. Fresh from being slammed by more than 4% on Friday, a sell-off that took weekly losses to more than 10%, Chinese stocks were hammered yet again on Monday. At the close the benchmark Shanghai Composite index fell 8.492% to 3,209.91, taking its losses from the multiyear peak of 5,178.2 hit on June 12 to 38%.

The Chinese media is dubbing the collapse “Black Monday.”

Other markets in Asia also got hammered, with Hong Kong and Japan both falling 5%. Europe markets continued the rout, with most major indices down 2%-3% in early trading. And US DOW futures were down more than 400 points three hours before the market open.

Black Monday -- What Wall Street Is Saying

By Carleton English and James Passeri 08/24/15 - 10:52 AM EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Twitter hashtag #BlackMonday was already conjuring memories of the crash of 1987 by the time U.S. investors woke up on Monday, at least for those old enough to remember it. Not to mention the even better known Black Monday of 1929, generally associated with the beginning of the Great Depression of the 1930s.

The situation didn't improve much a few hours later when U.S. markets actually opened. China's Shanghai Composite had fallen 8.5% overnight, which caused European markets to sell off and the Dow Jones to open down 1,000 points.

Much of the chaos has been attributed to concern that the Chinese economy is slowing down, heightened by the country's decision this month to devalue its currency in order to boost exports. That followed a massive sell-off in Chinese markets last month, which prompted the government to take drastic measures: IPOs were suspended, trading was halted in over 20% of the companies listed on Chinese exchanges, and shareholders who held more than 5% in a company were barred from selling for six months.

All of that has Wall Street analysts debating whether the market is merely in correction territory, the dominant view, or if the last few weeks of market mayhem are signaling deeper problems.

Traders work the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on Monday

 

COMMENTS (8/24/15): Obviously if you look at the faces of Chinese traders, they are going to look absolutely panic-striken and resolved to a sense of doom. They are not the faces to watch, however, if you are concerned about a potential global stock market crash. It is the faces above, the faces from traders in Europe, Latin America, and North America. We haven't seen faces like that in a long time ... not since October 2008 (the last crash) and October 1987 (the preceding crash). And each day the faces become more alarming to see.

After a huge precipitous drop in global markets this morning, there has been a partial recovery since noon. The stock market is now being nicknamed "the Rollercoaster from Hell." The media, in light of the resurgent trading, is already putting their spin doctors into service, reassuring everyone today was merely a correction. That sounds terribly familiar too .. like October 2008 when after more than a week of wild rides and huge drops, there was no question that the Stock Market had indeed "crashed" for all intents and purposes. Bear in mind that since the '87 crash, a security "braking" system has been put in place at Wall Street to automatically halt trading so that an actual "crash" in the 1929 sense can never happen. However, day after day of continued losses worldwide will still, in the end, translate into a "crash" and an economic meltdown.

The economy, by all appearances, propped up by short term fixes since 2008 that miraculously worked longer than they should have, is now finally running out of fuel. When the fuel runs out, whether it is this month, September, October, or November, who will we believe then? Who will be telling the truth?

I can not, in all good conscience, consider this a prediction fulfilled ... yet. But the turbulence and the failing economies in China and Asia make this a PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED. When people begin to invoke the dreaded phrase "Black Monday" it is time to sit up and take notice.

 

STOCK MARKET CRASH ALERT: MARKETS PLUNGE OVER CHINA FEARS

China fears hand Wall St. its worst day since 2011
- August 21, 2015.

By Chuck Mikolajczak | Fri Aug 21, 2015 7:13pm EDT

(Reuters) Fears of a China-led global economic slowdown drove Wall Street to its steepest one-day drop in nearly four years on Friday and left the Dow industrials more than 10 percent below a May record. Wall Street's selloff this week suggested investors are growing nervous about paying high prices for stocks at a time of minimal earnings growth, tumbling energy prices and an expected rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve that could gradually usher the end of almost a decade of easy money.

Stocks have seen few large moves this year, staying in a narrow range throughout 2015, but volatility spiked this month once China surprisingly devalued its currency. Weak Chinese manufacturing data on Friday, and another drop in China's stock market, rattled investors' nerves and led to Friday's tumble.

While this month's selloff has been swift, many analysts feel the declines may be close to being exhausted, with a turnaround possibly starting as soon as next week. "You're definitely witnessing a perfect storm in terms of China timing, people on vacation that affects liquidity, and you've got a lot of questions on the Fed and people are obviously focused on oil," said Andrew Frankel, co-president of Stuart Frankel & Co in New York. "If you're buying a stock, you're dipping a toe in here."

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI closed down 530.94 points, or 3.12 percent, to 16,459.75, the S&P 500 .SPX lost 64.84 points, or 3.19 percent, to 1,970.89 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC dropped 171.45 points, or 3.52 percent, to 4,706.04 ...

Global stock markets plunge on China currency decline - August 12, 2015.

By Virginia Harrison | CNNMoney (London) August 12, 2015: 10:51 AM ET

Global stocks sold off sharply Wednesday after China's currency declined for a second day, sending fear through investors. Currencies and commodities were also under pressure after China's central bank allowed the yuan to drop against the U.S. dollar, sparking its largest two-day decline in decades.

U.S. stock markets fell triple digits also for a second day in a row. By mid morning the Dow Jones industrial average was down 240 points. Major markets across Asia and Europe also recorded losses of between 1% and 3%.

The moves come one day after the People's Bank of China shocked markets by changing the way the yuan's daily trading band is calculated. China described the devaluation as one-off market-reform, but many see it as a way to boost exports and provide a lift to its cooling economy.

Companies with heavy exposure to China, including luxury goods makers and automakers, suffered the biggest blows in European trading. Fashion retailer Burberry (BBRYF) tumbled 3.5% in London, while luxury conglomerate LVMH (LVMHF) plunged 4% in Paris. Mercedes-Benz owner Daimler (DDAIF) sank 3.7% in German trading.

Investors are worried that more devaluations from China could hurt profits. Many Western firms, including Philips, BMW and Volkswagen (VLKAF), have already warned of slowing growth in China.

Miners also tumbled. Glencore (GLCNF) slumped 5.4% and BHP Billiton (BBL) traded down 2.2% in London. China is a big buyer of commodities and the weaker yuan would drive up the cost of raw materials, at a time when demand is already depressed. Prices for commodities like oil and copper have been sliding for months. Nickel was one of the biggest losers Wednesday, dropping 2.2%.

Global currencies also came under pressure. Commodity-tied units which are sensitive to trade with China, including the Australian dollar, lost ground. And China's latest devaluation inflamed fears of a so-called 'currency war.' The worry is that other countries will also look to drive down exchange rates to make their exports more competitive. "A deliberate attempt to lower the currency is indeed currency warfare," said Oxford Economics director Gabriel Stein. It may have already begun: Stein said Vietnam announced a widening of the trading band of the dong on Tuesday.

Syria Triggers Arab-Israeli War by Launching Air Strikes and Ground Invasions Against Northern Israel

 

Israeli-Syrian War

 

NEW PREDICTION: 10/4/13 -- Base 7 dating: October 2015.

It is inevitable if the civil war in Syria continues to grow and spread unchecked, that Israel will be pulled into the conflict. Thus far, Israeli involvement in Syria's civil war has resulted in two air strikes, neither of which resulted in any kind of retaliation by Bashar al-Assad. For Syria's part, there have been a few minor incursions into the Golan and some "errant" rockets that have struck northern Israeli soil. Mostly what has thus far been hurled back and forth have been threats ... and not on a steady basis.

It is unlikely that this lack of confrontation will continue indefinitely. It is only a matter of time before Syria launches a direct attack on Israel or does it through its proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon. At that point Israel will retaliate and a major Arab-Israeli War will be the result. Such a conflict may be short in duration and end in a ceasefire, with the civil war in Syria continuing on, or, on the other hand, an Arab-Israeli war will mark an escalation in the fighting, becoming part of a great Middle East War that will continue well into 2016 or 2017.

The status of Egypt at this time is also important. If it remains an ally of Israel, there will either be Egyptian support for Israel or no involvement whatsoever. However, if Egypt turns towards the Muslim Brotherhood or is infiltrated by AQIM/Al Shabab, Cairo may ally with Damascus and attack Israel from the south.

Egypt, at this time, remains a wild card.

 

 

WORLD WAR III ALERT: RUSSIA LAUNCHES AIRSTRIKES IN SYRIA; US DISPUTES TARGETS WERE ISIS

Russia conducts first airstrike in Syria

By Ed Payne, Barbara Starr and Susannah Cullinane, CNN

Updated 1903 GMT (0203 HKT) September 30, 2015

Washington (CNN)—Russia has conducted its first airstrike against ISIS in Syria, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said Wednesday. The airstrike targeted ISIS military equipment, communications centers, vehicles and ammunition, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said, as part of pinpoint strikes against ISIS ground targets.

Syrian state-run news agency SANA said Russian warplanes had targeted "ISIS dens" in locations including al-Rastan, Talbiseh and Zafaraniya in Homs province, as well as Al-Tilol al-Hmer, in Qunaitra province, Aydoun, a village on the outskirts of the town of Salamiya, Deer Foul between Hama and Homs, and the outskirts of Salmiya.

But a senior U.S. administration official told CNN's Elise Labott the Russian airstrike near the city of Homs "has no strategic purpose" in terms of combating ISIS, which "shows they are not there to go after ISIL." ISIL is another acronym for ISIS. The official said the U.S. had no intention of preventing the strikes but that Russian planes didn't seem to be flying in areas where the U.S. was operating. "They are not stupid," the official said. The State Department said U.S.-led coalition missions were continuing as normal despite an advance warning and request from Russia to stay out of Syrian airspace.

During his statement at the U.N. Security Council meeting Wednesday on fighting terrorism, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said: "We have conducted a number of strikes against ISIL targets in Syria over the past 24 hours including just an hour ago. These strikes will continue." Kerry said the U.S.-led coalition had conducted 3,000 airstrikes against ISIS and that efforts would dramatically increase. He warned that the fight against ISIS should not be confused with with support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "Moreover, we have also made clear that we would have grave concerns should Russia strike areas where ISIL and al Qaeda affiliated targets are not operating. Strikes of that kind would question Russia's real intentions -- fighting ISIL or protecting the Assad regime," he said.

 

WORLD WAR III ALERT: US-RUSSIAN CONFRONTATION BREWING IN SYRIA

U.S. warns Russia on military buildup in Syria

By Jamie Crawford, National Security Producer | Updated 0106 GMT (0806 HKT) September 10, 2015

Washington (CNN)—America's top diplomat called his Russian counterpart Wednesday to warn that Moscow's military buildup of troops in Syria could escalate the bloody conflict there that has engulfed the region for more than four years. The U.S. has been watching Russia's movement of military personnel with concern for several days, though the Foreign Ministry only confirmed the buildup Wednesday. There are "Russian military experts in Syria who are instructing (the Syrians) on the use of the military systems being delivered" to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a close Moscow ally, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement. Russia "has long been supplying arms and military equipment to Syria in accordance with bilateral contracts," she said.

That confirmation follows repeated warnings from Secretary of State John Kerry to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about how such activity could intensify the raging civil war there. In a call to Lavrov Wednesday, Kerry "reiterated our concern about these reports of Russian military activities, or buildup if you will, in Syria and made very clear our view that, if true and borne out, could lead to greater violence and even more instability in Syria," State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters.

The United States has called for al-Assad to go, but with help from Russia and Iran, al-Assad has been able to hold onto power. Yet both Moscow and Washington oppose ISIS, which has rushed to fill the vacuum caused by the extended civil war. America, meanwhile, has been offering limited support to moderate Syrian rebels in the fight against ISIS, though they are also trying to push out al-Assad.

U.S. officials are still trying to determine the true intent behind the Russian moves in Syria, but they say the possibilities range from preparations to attack ISIS positions to the more likely scenario of attacking moderate Syrian rebel forces fighting the Syrian military. Another possibility includes advance efforts to help Russia control what happens inside Syria if and when al-Assad falls. One official watching the situation closely said the United States will continue to press for more specifics, but that Russia has still "not provided a clear answer" about its intentions in Syria.

U.S. officials said two amphibious ships have unloaded gear at the Syrian port of Tartus, though the exact nature of the cargo is unclear. U.S. satellites have also seen more than 100 Russian naval infantry troops -- the equivalent of U.S. Marines -- on the ground and dozens of vehicles. This comes as U.S. satellites also spotted at least three Russian Antonov An-124 "Condor" planes offloading building supplies and air traffic control equipment. Initially, those planes flew across the Black Sea from Russia and across Bulgaria, Greece and the Mediterranean Sea on their way to Syria. After the Bulgarian and Greek governments denied overflight rights to the Russian planes, the Russians shifted the flight path to cross the Caspian Sea and then across Iran and Iraq on the way into Syria.

Secretary of State Kerry conveys US concerns over Russian actions in Syria

Kirby said he was unaware of whether the flights over Iran came up in Kerry's call with Lavrov. However, he said the reports were "disappointing, but not surprising" given Iran's strong support for the al-Assad government. While he declined to comment on any diplomatic conversations with the Iraqi government regarding Russian flights over Iraq, Kirby said the United States has asked its allies in the region "to ask some pretty tough questions of the Russians" about their intentions. The United States continues to watch Russian airfields and ports to see if any additional material potentially bound for Syria is being loaded up for transport.

Analysts who follow the situation closely say continued Russian military involvement in Syria only increases the possibility for miscalculation, with a variety of actors currently operating inside the country. "It not only would cause potential conflicts in the sky between (U.S.-led) coalition air forces going after ISIS targets that are in the area, but it would also risk a confrontation between Russian forces and the coalition forces," retired Air Force Col. Cedric Leighton said. In her statement Wednesday, Zakharova did not rule out additional Russian actions to assist al-Assad's government. "If there is a need from our side for additional measures to increase support for the anti-terrorist fight, this question will be reviewed in an appropriate way," she said.

Major Revolution or Civil War in Russian Federation; Millions of Russians Flee to Europe

 

Josef Kugelbeer - The Seer of Vorarlberg (1922)

Overnight the revolution of the communists together with the national socialists starts. There is a storm over cloisters and clergymen. At first
humans do not want to believe it, so surprisingly it will happen. Many will be imprisoned and executed. Everyone flees into the mountains.
The Pfaender (Mountain) is full of people. Like a lightning from cheerful sky the revolution of Russia sweeps through first to Germany,
then to France, Italy and England.
The mischief will quite suddenly come from Russia. Everywhere tumults and destruction.
The Rhine areas are destroyed by airplanes and invading armies ...

 

 

Alois Irlmaier

In Russia a revolution breaks out and a civil war. The corpses are so much that you cannot remove them off the roads anymore. The large ones
among the party leaders commit suicide and in the blood the great guilty is washed off ... I see a red mass mixed with
yellow faces, it is a general riot and horrible killing.

 

NEW PREDICTION: 12/2/14 -- Base 7 dating: October 2015. DESCRIPTION: 12/27/14: It looks like Russia's October Revolution of 2014 failed to materialize. Nevertheless, one of the two causes for such a revolution that I speculated about, an economic recession or crash in Russia, is now in place since the ruble saw a major plummet in its global value last week. Sanctions are the cause of Russia's current economic woes, since in my prediction for an October 2014 revolt I admitted consternation at that time as to how such a thing could happen since Russia's economy was so stable. Not any more. October 2015 looks even more grim than October 2014 because it will be on a base 7 system alignment with the October 1917 Revolution 98 (7 x 14) years ago. 7 and 14 (2 x 7) are pretty powerful numbers. There were 98 years between Lincoln's and Kennedy's assassinations! Of course Russia has been aligned with that dreadful seventh multiple anniversary 13 times already and, as mentioned, this will be the 14th. The big difference this time, however, is that not all Russians feel secure about Vladimir Putin (although most still do); Russia has been involved in what has been its most military incursive behavior since the Cold War; and, of course, the Russian economy is not very good. The conditions next year, if not improved, may well lead to either a world war or a revolution or civil war in Russia. It could even lead to both these things since some European prophecies, especially the one by Josef Kugelbeer, state that a Russian revolution will spread to Europe and then ignite World War III. I believe there will be a huge refugee problem as well if this occurs as many Russians may seek to escape their country in a state of panic for survival in Europe. But there will be no escape if there is a global conflict.

Former Beatle Dies

 

Paul McCartney and Ringo StarrA Hard Day's Night cover with very dead Paul

 

OLD PREDICTION: 12/20/05, UPDATED 5/18/15 -- Base 7 dating: November 2015. I'm not particularly excited at the prospect of another former member of The Beatles dying, but the math is quite disturbing.

For purposes of the base 7 system, November 9, 1966, continues to resonate. It is the former Beatles' agreed date for Paul McCartney's tragic "death" in a car crash and, so strong has the "Paul Is Dead" hoax been, that this date will continue to be cited for generations of conspiracy theorists to come.

What I find strange, and more than a little creepy, is how this plays out on a base 7 timeline. Fourteen years (2 x 7) years later, John Lennon was murdered by a deranged fan in New York City on December 8, 1980. Twenty-one (3 x 7) years after Lennon's death, George Harrison died of brain cancer on November 29, 2001. There's that November date again: November 9 for Paul and November 29 for George. Also, Lennon's murder misses Paul's "death" by 29 days (December 8 is 29 days after November 9).

Spector and Lennon working together on John's album "Rock n' Roll" in 1973And, of course, that is not all to the timeline.

Seven years after the "death" of Paul McCartney, John Lennon experienced a foreshadowing of what would finally happen to him in December 1980. In October 1973, Lennon talked to producer Phil Spector about working on an album of rock n' roll "oldies."

News of John Lennon's murder John spent three weeks trying to convince Spector he would be given complete control of the album. Work on the album finally commenced in November 1973. John sang and played rhythm guitar while Spector dictated orders from the control room.

However, despite the majority of the album being finished by December 1973, the album would not be completed and released until 1975, due, in part, to two auto accidents in 1974 that would temporarily disable Phil Spector.

During November 1973, rumours began spreading about the wild goings-on at the Spector sessions. John later told BBC that he heard gunfire coming from the men's room of the Record Plant.

Later, Lennon recounted that Spector "fired a shot into the ceiling" to get the musicians back on track. Lennon jumped and held his ears. "Phil," he said, "if you're gonna kill me, kill me. But don't fuck with me ears. I need 'em."

Harry Nilsson also recounted how Spector had John tied to a chair during one session and then left him in the studio at the end of the night. Fortunately, John managed to free himself and called a friend to come get him out of the building.

Three important fatalities that did occur in 1973 were those of Byrds founder Gram Parsons, apparently of a drugs overdose at Joshua Tree on September 19, folk singer Jim Croce in a September 20 plane crash, and singer Bobby Darin during surgery to repair a faulty heart valve on December 20.

Seven years after the panic-ridden sessions with Phil Spector, John Lennon was shot dead by deranged fan Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980.

Thus, from 1966 to 1980 there was no break in the momentum. Lennon had several "close calls" with a gun-toting lunatic producer in 1973 and then ultimately was shot to death by a fan in 1980.

Seven years after Lennon's death, nothing happened to a rock star, and especially not to a former Beatle. Instead, Liberace died of AIDS complications on February 4, 1987. Another seven years later, on April 5, 1994, rocker Kurt Cobain committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. Murder had always been suspected and the method was exactly the same as the suicide death of Superman television star George Reeves on June 16, 1959 ... 35 (5 x 7) years earlier! Clearly this is a seperate timeline, although the "George" in Reeves' name could have foreshadowed the death of George Harrison as a clue.

George Harrison obituary newsSeven years after the apparent suicide of Kurt Cobain, and twenty-one (3 x 7) years after the murder of Beatles founder John Lennon, former Beatle George Harrison expired from brain cancer on November 29, 2001. This after having already fought off throat cancer he was supposedly diagnosed having in 1998, and after surviving a stabbing attack by a mysterious assailant who broke into his home on December 30, 1999.

"Paul Is Dead" claim by the late George HarrisonWhy would anyone try to kill the "quiet Beatle," George Harrison? Why, for that matter, would anyone other than a conveniently-placed psycho nut job case bloody obsessed fan have murdered John Lennon? As it turns out, George was not so "quiet" after all, and apparently John was on the verge to lending credibility to the Paul Is Dead conspiracy rumors with actual facts.

It was all on George Harrison tapes that were then made into a book, Paul Is Really Dead: The Last Testament Of George Harrison. The dating on the tapes was December 30, 1999, presumably recorded in the morning or afternoon. He was attacked later on that night.

On them, he provided evidence that Paul had stormed out of an argument with John Lennon during a recording session, picked up a female fan named Rita who was hitchhiking, and then while she was trying to make out with him while he was driving, smashed his car into a tree, killing him and leaving her so badly disfigured she required plastic surgery. The British MI5 (the same organization that, along with MI6, murdered Princess Diana in 1997) paid for Rita's plastic surgery, managed to have a double take McCartney's place, and swore Rita and the remaining three Beatles, along with manager Brian Epstein, to secrecy under pain of death if the truth were ever revealed.

This was, in part, to protect the millions of female fans it was seriously believed would have committed suicide had they known of Paul's death (in other words to prevent an even greater national tragedy). It was also to further a secret globalist agenda that The Beatles had unwittingly become complicit pawns in. Epstein, Lennon, and Harrison were all killed because of what they knew, threatened to tell, and left clues about for fans to decipher. I have heard the recorded documents and have to admit they sound an awful lot like Harrison's voice.

By the time of George Harrison's death in November 2001, the Paul McCartney "death hoax" curse had spanned exactly 35 (5 x 7) years. It had brought close brushes with death, actual death, additional conspiracy theories, and several more death hoaxes. On June 13, 2001, Dallas "shock jocks" Kramer and Twitch told listeners to their KEGL-FM evening show that pop singer Britney Spears and her boyfriend Justin Timberlake had been involved in a car accident in Los Angeles. On June 11, 2007, six rather than seven years later, it was reported that Paris Hilton had been "stabbed multiple times" while serving a jail sentence; one of the stab wounds having punctured her back, severely damaging her spinal cord. Then on September 6, 2008, not far from the November 2008 vector, a news source fallaciously claimed that "Yahoo News" was reporting that pop singer Miley Cyrus had just died in a major car accident in Los Angeles, California.

McCartney teamed up with Michael Jackson in some songs and both were good friendsUltimately, the next rock star death would overshoot the November 2008 vector by seven months (there is that number 7 again).

Seven years and seven months after the death of George Harrison on November 29, 2001, pop singer Michael Jackson died suddenly from a cardiac arrest on June 25, 2009, due to toxic levels of the drugs propofol, lorazepam and midazolam which he had had his personal physician administer to him by IV nearly every night to help him sleep.

And the question that will present itself in or near November 2015 will be if the November 1966-December 1980-November 2001 timeline will have an influence yet again. Will it be close to the vector or will it overshoot to June 2016 much like the death of Michael Jackson did in June 2009?

Who will it be? Obviously, Paul McCartney himself (or is it Faul McCartney?) or Ringo Starr must head the list of candidates due to the strong Beatles link.

Or will the other timeline predominate?

Will we see a replay of the George Reeves-Kurt Cobain suicide deathline in June 2015?

 

Singer Prince dies at 57

By Ashley Fantz and Lisa Respers France, CNN

Updated 1940 GMT (0240 HKT) April 21, 2016

(CNN) — Prince, who pioneered "the Minneapolis sound" and took on the music industry in his fight for creative freedom, died Thursday at age 57.

"It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57," said his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.

Earlier Thursday, police said they were investigating a death at the Paisley Park studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

A massive outpouring of grief followed on social media. Some are saying the icon's death "is what it sounds like when doves cry," a reference to his monster hit from 1984.

The singer's fame never waned through the decades, but he was considered synonymous with the 1980s. His fame reached a fever pitch with the 1984 film "Purple Rain," about an aspiring musician, his troubled home life and a budding romance.

Just this month, Prince made news, but it wasn't for his music. He said he wasn't feeling well, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and canceled a concert date in that city. Some days later, he took the stage in Atlanta to perform. After that concert on April 14, the singer's plane made an emergency landing, Noel-Schure told CNN. At the time she said, "He is fine and at home."

Prince won seven Grammy Awards and earned 30 nominations. Five of his singles topped the charts and 14 other songs hit the Top 10. He won an Oscar for best original song score for "Purple Rain."

The singer's predilection for lavishly kinky story-songs earned him the nickname, His Royal Badness. He was also known as the "Purple One" because of his colorful fashions.

His sound was as unique and transfixing as he was. He created what became known as Minneapolis sound, which was a funky blend of pop, synth and new wave.

Controversy followed the singer and that, in part, made his fans adore him more.

"Darling Nikki," a song that details a one-night stand, prompted the formation of the Parents Music Resource Center. Led by Tipper Gore, the group encouraged record labels to place advisory labels on albums with explicit lyrics.

Prince left his imprint on so many aspects of popular culture from movies to sports to politics. As the Minnesota Vikings prepped to take on the New Orleans Saints in the 2010 NFC championship game, Prince wrote a fight song, "Purple and Gold," to inspire his home team. The Vikings lost. He was the halftime performer at the Super Bowl in 2007.

Last year, while addressing the unrest in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody, Prince released the song "Baltimore." He performed at a benefit concert in the city and gave a portion of the proceeds to youth groups there.

Source: Prince had opioid medication on him at time of death

By Evan Perez, CNN Justice Reporter

Updated 0325 GMT (1025 HKT) April 28, 2016

(CNN) — Authorities investigating the death of music legend Prince found prescription opioid medication on his person and in his Minnesota home, a law enforcement official told CNN on Wednesday.

The pills are commonly used to treat pain, and investigators have brought in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to help with the case, the source said.

Investigators believe a health scare about a week before Prince's death, which caused an unscheduled landing of his plane in Illinois, was likely the result of a reaction to the pain medication, the official said.

The pilot told air traffic control that a passenger, later known to be Prince, was unresponsive.

Prince was treated for a potential overdose of pain medication, the official said.

The singer was reportedly rushed to a hospital in Moline. His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, later said he returned home and was fine.

Prince was 57 when he died last week at his home in a Minneapolis suburb.



Prince dies at age 57

Prince is dead

Investigators are still awaiting results of autopsy and toxicology tests for further understanding of why Prince died.

The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office in Ramsey, Minnesota, performed the autopsy on the much-loved musician on Friday. Dr. A. Quinn Strobl finished the procedure in four hours, according to the office, but Strobl won't declare what caused Prince's death until after the office gathers all the relevant details. That will take weeks.

Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park, his home and studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, on Thursday. Paramedics performed CPR but were unable to revive him. Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson said there were no obvious signs of trauma on Prince's body when he was found.

The last time Prince was seen alive was at 8 p.m. Wednesday when he was dropped off at Paisley Park, the sheriff said. He was alone in the complex when he was found, which Olson said was not unusual given Prince's private persona.

 

COMMENTS (5/12/16): Same thing as what happened seven years ago to Michael Jackson. This is the second time in a row that the male deathline that not only took the lives of John Lennon (1980) and George Harrison (2001), but also Superman star George Reeves (1959) and Kurt Cobain (1994) was late and happened instead early in the following year. First was Michael Jackson on June 25, 2009, six to seven months late. Now it is Prince, April 21, 2016 .. four to five months late ... and over a month after the death of the "fifth Beatle" George Martin.

Note Prince's death is two months closer to the projected death vector than Jackson's. That could mean that in 2023, the month of February may be the month of doom for yet another male pop star and that in 2029 the vector will once again return to late autumn.

Michael Jackson and Prince were not anything alike, but their careers ran parallel to one another's and they both seem to have died under similar circumstances.

Although I never would have expected Prince to be the one in danger because I had never had cause to believe he was addicted to drugs, I anticipated that some male star of his stature might die unexpectedly and prematurely this year rather than late autumn of 2015. I quote myself above:

"Seven years and seven months after the death of George Harrison on November 29, 2001, pop singer Michael Jackson died suddenly from a cardiac arrest on June 25, 2009, due to toxic levels of the drugs propofol, lorazepam and midazolam which he had had his personal physician administer to him by IV nearly every night to help him sleep. And the question that will present itself in or near November 2015 will be if the November 1966-December 1980-November 2001 timeline will have an influence yet again. Will it be close to the vector or will it overshoot to June 2016 much like the death of Michael Jackson did in June 2009?"

Additional quoted material by me: "In any event, all of these strange deaths happened in the same year: 2009. All involved remarkable people. Included in the mix was the mysterious death of pop singer Michael Jackson. Technically, his death should have happened in November or December 2008, thus it was late by six months ... and it looks like this may be the case again with another male pop star in 2016."

"There is a 1 in 8 chance of another 1988 Roy Orbison "sudden death by heart attack" or other natural causes (in 2016). Orbison's death may have been the actual precedent for Michael Jackson's death."

This event was anticipated to happen this year ... by no later than June 2016. Thus it is a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

 

Sir George Martin, Beatles producer, dead at 90

By Todd Leopold, CNN

Updated 0934 GMT (1734 HKT) March 9, 2016

(CNN)—Sir George Martin, the music producer whose collaboration with the Beatles helped redraw the boundaries of popular music, died Tuesday, according to his management company. He was 90.

Martin died "peacefully at home" in England, according to Adam Sharp, the founder of C A Management which represents the music producer. "In a career that spanned seven decades he was recognized globally as one of music's most creative talents and a gentleman to the end. The family ask that their privacy be respected at this time," Sharp said.

Martin worked with countless others over a career that spanned decades, including Peter Sellers, Shirley Bassey, America, Cheap Trick, Jeff Beck and Celine Dion. But his fame, and his influence, rests on the seven years he spent with the Beatles, the most successful group in music history -- a group Martin helped propel to the top spot with his musical expertise, tasteful arrangements and willing experimentation.

Ringo Starr thanked the producer in a tweet: "God bless George Martin peace and love to Judy and his family love Ringo and Barbara George will be missed xxx." Judy refers to Martin's wife of nearly 50 years.

Martin's partnership with the group he signed to Parlophone Records in 1962 changed all of their lives -- and, by extension, popular culture. "When I first met the Beatles in 1962, I didn't think much of their songs at all," he told JazzWax.com. "But they learned so quickly how to write a hit. They were like plants in a hothouse. They grew incredibly fast."

The polished, classically trained producer began as a father figure to the four somewhat scruffy lads from Liverpool, capturing their songs on tape with a minimum of fuss or studio gimmickry. But by 1966, he was as much a collaborator as mentor, using his knowledge of both musical structure and recording technology to help the band realize its musical visions.

Typically modest, he described his role as a producer in matter-of-fact terms. "Put simply, my job was to make sure recordings were artistically exceptional and commercially appealing, maximizing the qualities of artists and songs," he told JazzWax.com.

In Martin's hands, however, that job was both expansive and unobtrusive. Songs produced by George Martin had a distinctive touch but rarely called attention to his work. The spotlight was on the music.

And yet his role cannot be overstated. Working with engineers such as Norman Smith and Geoff Emerick, Martin helped the Beatles turn the studio into another instrument.

He added a string quartet to "Yesterday." He allowed backward tape loops on "Tomorrow Never Knows," even if he couldn't make John Lennon's voice sound like chanting Tibetan monks -- one of Lennon's characteristically absurd requests.

The work reached a pinnacle in 1967, with Martin's ingenious oversight of the "Penny Lane" / "Strawberry Fields Forever" single and the album that often tops the lists of greatest ever: "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." By then, even he wondered whether the group had gone too far. "As we were getting longer and longer into the album, and more and more avant-garde, I was wondering if we were being a little over-the-top and a little bit, maybe, pretentious," Martin recalled in a 1992 documentary about "Pepper." "Is the public ready for this yet?"

On the surface, the contrast between the patrician-looking Martin and his long-haired musical charges couldn't have been starker. He was movie-star handsome, reserved, establishment; they were casually pretty, energetic, counterculture. He was the World War II generation; they were the ones who helped upend it.

But the two sides had a surprising amount in common. Martin came from a working-class background, as did the Beatles. Moreover, the producer was a keen fan of comedy, having worked with members of "The Goon Show," such as Sellers and Spike Milligan, and produced the satirical "Beyond the Fringe" troupe. Their work was well known to the comedy-loving Beatles.

It was a sense of humor that may have initially bound them together. According to legend, when introduced to Martin at an audition for his record label, the producer asked the band whether there was anything they didn't like. George Harrison quickly responded, "Well, for a start, I don't like your tie." ...

In February 1962, Martin received a call from a music publisher who was trying to drum up interest for a band managed by a friend, Brian Epstein. Martin met with Epstein and heard his group, the Beatles. He was not impressed. The songs were weak and the tempos uneven.

Nevertheless, he liked a few aspects of the group and eventually agreed to sign them. "I just thought they were interesting and had something slightly different, and I'd like to know more about them," he told the BBC in 1964. Their humor, typified by Harrison's quip, helped win him over. Still, Martin quickly learned the Beatles were not easily moldable like other bands of the era. There was no frontman: Lennon, Harrison and Paul McCartney all sang lead.

Lennon and McCartney were also determined to make it as songwriters and were dismissive of Martin's suggestion, at an early session, that they release a Mitch Murray song called "How Do You Do It." Another producer may have put his foot down, but Martin decided to trust the band's judgment. They soon rewarded him by coming up with "Please Please Me," the group's first UK No. 1. (Not that Martin was wrong; Gerry and the Pacemakers later took "How Do You Do It" to No. 1 as well.)

Martin was always a valuable partner to the Beatles, but particularly so in the early years. It was Martin who suggested speeding up the tempo of "Please Please Me," originally a Roy Orbison-inspired slow rocker. It was Martin who suggested to Epstein that he meet with Dick James, who became the group's song publisher. And it was Martin who found ways of making the group's experiments work, whether it was feedback on "I Feel Fine," the use of a sitar on "Norwegian Wood" or the harpsichord-sounding piano on "In My Life." Not one to miss a trick, he also recorded instrumental versions of the band's hits during the height of Beatlemania and provided incidental music to the group's film "A Hard Day's Night."

By 1965, Martin was chafing at EMI's oversight and decided to become an independent producer. He established Associated Independent Recording, though he continued to work with the Beatles as well as other EMI acts.

He also entered his most fruitful period. The Beatles were breaking ground, and Martin was right along with them.

On "Strawberry Fields," he recorded two versions: one using more standard rock-band instrumentation, the other with an orchestra. When Lennon asked to put the two together -- despite the versions being in different keys and tempi -- Martin and engineer Geoff Emerick obliged and, by happy accident, found they fit almost perfectly by speeding one version up and slowing the other down.

The "Sgt. Pepper" album was an even bigger challenge. Though overflowing with multitracked harmonies and clever arrangements, it was recorded on a four-track console. Martin would mix four tracks down to one and then record more, careful to limit distortion. Yet, out of this rudimentary setup came songs such as "A Day in the Life," with its rumbling piano, tweaked Lennon vocal and explosive crescendos.

As the Beatles, beset by legal issues and differing philosophies, started splitting apart, Martin grew weary of the atmosphere. He sat out a number of the "White Album" sessions, entrusting the work to assistants such as Emerick and Ken Scott. He was left out of the troubled "Let It Be" sessions entirely and returned for "Abbey Road" only after assurances that the group would put aside its bickering.

It was the last album he would do with the full band, though the single version of "Let It Be" released in 1970 bears his credit.

After the Beatles' breakup in 1970, Martin worked with a wide variety of artists. He had particular success with the group America, producing their Top 10 hits "Tin Man," "Lonely People" and "Sister Golden Hair."

He also produced Jeff Beck, Cheap Trick, UFO, Ultravox, the original cast recording of the Who's "Tommy" and the movie soundtrack of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." Elton John had Martin produce his updated version of "Candle in the Wind," done in honor of Princess Diana, in 1997.

Martin also maintained his relationship with Paul McCartney, overseeing the explosive James Bond theme "Live and Let Die" and one of McCartney's most highly praised solo albums, "Tug of War."

The Beatles, however, were never far away. When the surviving members of the group embarked on the "Anthology" project in the mid-'90s, Martin was back in the producer's chair, overseeing all the old recordings. He brought in his son, Giles, to help with such projects as "The Beatles Love," the soundtrack to a Cirque du Soleil show that mixed and matched snippets to Beatles songs.

By that time, his ears weren't what they used to be, he admitted. Indeed, he became the vice-president of Deafness Research UK, a charity dedicated to hearing issues. He finally retired, officially, about 2009, when he was 83. Three years later, Giles Martin said he was "enjoying early retirement."

Over his long career, Martin won pretty much every honor that could be given in the music world -- and elsewhere. "Sgt. Pepper" was the Grammy winner for 1967's album of the year; Martin was later given a Grammy Foundation Leadership Award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. Twenty-three Martin productions hit No. 1 in the United States. Thirty did so in the UK. And he was knighted in 1996. Indeed, when it came time for someone to serve as musical director for Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee in 2002, Martin was the choice.

Throughout his life, Martin generally played down his accomplishments. But that wasn't to say he didn't know how much he had achieved. "Would I like to do something again? No, I wouldn't want to do anything again. I'm not a person to look back," he told Rock Cellar in 2013. "I don't honestly think I could do anything better than what we did."

 

COMMENTS (3/29/16): My reaction on reading of George Martin's death was both one of surprise and also one of "of course, I should have known." However, my action to post this has taken a while. I was still reeling from the shock of David Bowie's death, wondering if a non-Beatles rock icon like him actually had fulfilled the prediction instead. It may be that David Bowie's unexpected death at age 69 from cancer was one other aspect of this prediction. I may place his obituary here as well for that reason, but it is not necessary.

The clue, once again, as was the case with George Reeves and George Harrison, was the first name "George." I never considered the "fifth Beatle" .. partly because I always thought that term was applied to Beatles manager Brian Epstein, who committed suicide in 1967. But I guess the title went to both Epstein and Martin. A long and most distinguished career, his musical knowledge and advice, indeed playing many of the instruments in the recording studio, truly made Sir George Martin a fifth Beatle. And I just noticed that out of the many news articles that name George Martin as the "fifth Beatle," this one from CNN fails to do so. For shame.

PREDICTION FULFILLED.
