For those of you not named Stacy who are confused by the title of today’s blog, allow me to enlighten you. Stacy has been a regular listener to the Big Wake Up Call, featuring me and Ryan Gatenby, pretty much since I started doing it. When she realized that we had ins with a couple of film companies and were getting news before most anyone else she started emailing often. It seems she’s a bit of a superhero fan. So, today, I’ll try and sate some of her curiosity. I started to do this earlier this week but got sidetracked by an unusual discovery. If you search Google for cosplay you only get white and Asian people. You have to specifically look for black or brown or whatever people if you want to see any diversity. The same held true for almost every people related search. When I wrote about that a strange thing happened. No one, not one person, “liked” it on Facebook, but 65 of them shared it. The same thing happened on Twitter. I guess if you like something like that the Google police will come and take you away. It’s the only explanation I can see.
Let’s start with Avengers: Age of Ultron. As of this writing there are fifteen different trailers out. There may be more by the time you’re done reading this. Do you need a stand alone clip of Hawkeye & Quicksilver? Here you go. Or War Machine? Or a photographic essay of the characters in costume? Gotcha covered. How about a trilogy of trailers that feature Ultron? We’ve got that too. Or maybe you’re wondering what happened to the naked black woman in the first trailer. It was a dream sequence and it didn’t make the final cut. I have no idea why they’re releasing so much material this close to the film’s opening. It isn’t like anyone was going to ignore it.
Another eagerly anticipated film, Batman -vs- Superman: Dawn of Justice, just had its trailer leaked. Click here to watch it with Spanish subtitles. It has my favorite tag line so far; “Tell me, do you bleed? You will.” Yes, that’s Batman talking to Superman. The imagery is interesting. It shows Superman being worshiped as a god and then things clearly go south on him. It doesn’t show any of the other characters but you get the vibe that all is not happy in Metropolis or Gotham. Of course Supes was probably responsible for the death of a couple million people in his last fight so you can see why there might be some tension. Also, just for laughs, it appears that this film will have a Robin and a dead Robin. Specifically Jena Malone will play the character of Carrie Kelly, the Robin from the Dark Knight Returns comic book & cartoon. The dead Robin is rumored to be Jason Todd, a Robin who was killed by the Joker but came back as The Red Hood. Who’s playing him is still unclear.
In a related Justice League note, Warner dumped the director of the Wonder Woman movie before a frame was shot. Michelle McLarin, the old director, wanted to give Wonder Woman a tiger sidekick. Cool if she’s He Man or something. Not so hot otherwise. The new director is Patty Jenkins. That’s an inspired choice if you ask me. The new movie looks as though it will use the DC 52 version of the character which will give her all sorts of fun family problems. Even without a tiger.
In other Justice League news, Gods and Monsters, a cartoon re-imagining of the Justice League mythos, is coming out soon.
“Journey to a divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet — but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice. In this alternate universe, Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely “accidents,” a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League — but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It’s a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?”
The trailer looks pretty cool.
Another film that has fans drooling on their keyboards is Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Somehow they managed to release their trailer before it got leaked. They also were able to control the release of images and models that will be in the film. Good news for fans is that it appears as though J.J. Abrams is just going to pretend the prequels never happened. Thank God for that. The plot of this movie starts thirty years after Return of the Jedi and brings back familiar faces and introduces new ones. Also, they’re going as light on the CGI as they can. That little round robot from the first trailer is called BB-8 and he’s a remote controlled puppet. If you click the previous link you can watch video of him beeping trash at R2-D2.
In other space news CBS is looking to have a new Star Trek series out next year in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the original.
Some movie snippets to keep you frothing; Lynda Carter may appear in the new Wonder Woman movie. As it sits now she would be Wonder Woman’s mom. Olivia Munn will be portraying Psylocke in the new X-Men: Apocalypse movie. As a devoted cosplayer herself you can expect there to be lots of revealing spandex in her costume. There will be, yet another, Michael Myers vs Jason Vorhees movie coming out next year. In the same movie it’s been confirmed that Ben Hardy will portray Archangel and double up as one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Deadpool, currently filming in Canada, is eschewing the whole secrecy approach to film-making and is, instead, inviting fans to come out and watch them shoot. Given the fact that fans are the whole reason this thing’s getting made in the first place I think that’s a cool idea.
Also coming out is a film called Ex Machina which concerns the nature of sentience. It’s a theme that’s been done to death but this one seems to promise sex and booze. Might be worth a gander. Jurassic Park will be hitting theaters on June 12th and they’ve taken time out of their busy day to release a thirty second trailer. That’s rarely a good sign. Another film that’s in production, The Leviathan, has a three minute proof of concept trailer online and it’s freaking awesome. I never once thought of death dealing space whales but I’m glad someone did.
I’ll take a look at the TV universes tomorrow.

Today I get to share a mystery with you. First, some history. Way back in 1977 a scientist named Jerry Ehrman was flipping through transcripts of findings from radio telescopes. Yes, that’s about as exciting as it sounds. Anyway, as he was flipping, and flipping, and flipping, he suddenly stopped. You see most of what he would see were numbers between one and four. These indicate common background noise. Keep in mind that the universe is not silent. Planets make noise, stars make noise and so does pretty much everything else floating through the firmament. If you don’t believe me just CLICK HERE to download numerous samples recorded by NASA and others. They’re free and, since they were created by nature, are not copywritten. You can use them in your music or your PowerPoint for work or whatever you want.
Okay, so now we’re clear that we live in a noisy universe. Anyway, Jerry, mentioned above, stopped flipping because the numbers went from five to six to seven and all the way up to U. Yes, U. That is the symbol for a signal thirty times stronger than the traditional background noise. And that signal was caught on one telescope and it grew and faded in conjunction with the Earth’s rotation. In other words it was a signal coming to us, not from us.
Go ahead and chew on that for a moment.
Jerry called it the WOW! Signal. Almost fifty years later I still can’t think of a better name.
This type of signal should not be confused with fast radio bursts. Those are brief spikes that could be, but no one knows for sure, caused by pulsars or other natural phenomena. What Jerry found was a sustained signal. The kind that requires transmission not just creation.
And scientists have been looking for it, or something like it, ever since.
About a decade ago Parkes Observatory in Australia began recording multiple signals that, quite simply, shouldn’t exist. I’ll let Nadia Drake at National Geographic fill in the rest of the story.
Let’s be clear about one thing: Reheating coffee in the microwave is always a poor life choice. But it becomes especially unwise if you’re using a microwave oven near a radio telescope and you’re so eager for that icky, burnt and wholly unsatisfying taste that you prematurely pop the coffee out before the oven’s timer goes off.
You may have just unleashed a small but mighty radio signal that could be detected by a nearby, sensitive radio telescope. And, if you happen to be reheating your coffee at the Parkes Observatory in Australia, you could be contributing to the growing collection of mysterious radio signals known as perytons. Well, the collection of formerly mysterious radio signals: A study posted to the arXiv on April 9 identified microwave ovens at the Parkes site as the rather mundane source of perytons.
“It was quite surprising that it ended up being microwaves,” says study author Emily Petroff of Australia’s Swinburne University of Technology.
For years, astronomers had been puzzled by these brief but intense bursts of radio waves that in some ways appeared to be coming from deep space. There have been dozens of reported perytons, some dating back to the 1990s, and theories about the signals’ origin included ball lightning, aircraft, and components of the telescopes themselves.
But almost since the beginning, one thing has been clear about perytons: Despite mimicking a deep space signal, they’re produced by a source that’s somewhere near Earth. Astronomers knew this because perytons simultaneously show up in multiple viewing fields rather than arriving from a single point.
Petroff and her colleagues discovered the source of perytons after they installed a real-time radio interference monitor at the Parkes telescope. In January, the telescope detected three of the signals – and the interference monitor picked up three simultaneous interference signatures. The team recognized the interloping frequencies as possibly belonging to a microwave oven.
When Petroff and her colleagues tested their hypothesis, they found they could create perytons on demand simply by opening the oven door before the timer had dinged.
Why is the impatience over a warming Hot Pocket important? If you open the microwave door before the timer goes off, the thing in the oven that produces microwaves – it’s called a magnetron – hasn’t had a chance to completely shut off. And so, the microwave oven is briefly transmitting radio waves into the open.
“Radio emission escaping from microwave ovens during the magnetron shut-down phase neatly explain all of the observed properties of the peryton signals,” the study authors write. They then identified the offending microwaves as the ones in the staff kitchen and visitors center at the observatory.
Sensitive radio telescopes, like the ones at Parkes, the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia, can easily detect those rogue microwaves if the telescopes are pointed in the right direction.
“Microwave ovens are a problem for us – and none exist on site. They are prohibited,” says Arecibo director Robert Kerr. Other facilities that don’t ban microwave ovens altogether shield them in enclosures called Faraday cages, which are supposed to prevent detectable radiation from leaking out. In general, scientists try very hard to eliminate any potential source of Earth-based interference from mucking up radio astronomy data – and that means things like cell phones are a no-no near telescopes.
“Alas, radio telescope sites may appear to be occupied by Luddites,” Kerr says. “No microwaves, no cell phones, no wireless routers, no bluetooth printers or headphones, and – more due to funding – often no food.”
So, one of astrophysics’ more exotic mysteries has a surprisingly down-to-Earth solution. But what does this mean about fast radio bursts? Might they also have an Earthly origin?
It seems unlikely, Petroff and her colleagues argue. The intricacies of the fast radio burst signals still suggest an extragalactic origin. And there are clear differences in the time distributions of the two types of signals. As one might expect from a cosmological signal, fast radio bursts tend to show up rather randomly around the clock. But, perhaps unsurprisingly in retrospect, the peryton data show those signals “clustering near the lunchtime hour.”
Aha! A clue, Sherlock.
I know that all this seems very silly on the surface but it’s not. By being able to clearly sort out the initial source of each transmission they are able to winnow the results to checkable facts.
To date there have been six fast radio bursts detected and one WOW! Signal. The latter being one more than many believe should exist at all.
As our telescopes become more advanced, and more sensitive, that could easily change.
For right now we have one, very, tantalizing clue that we’re not alone and a good reason not to hurry microwave ovens.
Let’s try an experiment. I want to find out if Google’s search algorithm is inherently racist. I want you to do an image search for the word cosplay on Google. You’ll note that the vast majority, as in all, of the images feature white or Asian people. Now I want you to search for black cosplay. You will see thousands of dark skinned people who enjoy comics just as much as I do. So why don’t they show up in the general search? Why are they segregated from the rest? You’ll get similar results if you substitute People of Color or African American for the word black. You’ll also note at the top of the image search results that Google will now give you multiple options such as Black Cosplay Ideas in case you want to make a costume. And yet not one of these thousands of images show up in a general search. Okay, maybe that’s an aberration. Let’s try hot models. Nope. All white. Now let’s try hot black models. Yep. Thousands of images of black men and women, all hot. None of whom show up in the general search. You can pick any people oriented search and you’ll get similar results.
Since Google is the most popular search engine on the planet this is important for a couple of obvious reasons. First, and foremost, lazy marketers tend to rely on Google to see what trends are happening. If they don’t see people of color represented in a general search they assume that such people don’t exist. If they don’t exist then they don’t get represented. It’s only been over the last couple of years that Hollywood and mainstream media have become aware that non-white people want to do something other than be cast as stereotypes. Simply put, not all black women are maids or hookers.
Secondly, if companies are unaware of this discrepancy they won’t promote their images correctly to reach a wider audience. So those images end up in niche searches instead of being part of the general consensus.
Lastly, when Hollywood did deign to cast a person of color in an important role it tended to come off as pandering, at best. Mostly because they tried to market the product to white people. See the nice black person? They won’t hurt you. There have been exceptions, of course (HI WILL SMITH!), but even then the person would have to be cast with a white person of stature if the movie had a serious budget (HI TOMMY LEE JONES!).
Or, if you’re feeling old school, check out Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.
Television, both free and cable, has been ahead of the curve, a little bit. The reason why is simple. They took a look at the national demographics and said “Search engines be damned, there’s money in them there other folks’ pockets.”
Maybe not the most altruistic motive around, but it works for now. And it did give us Good Times, which you would think would have spurred more such shows. Sadly, it did not.
Comic books have been way ahead of the curve, with varying degrees of success, for a slightly different reason. They noticed that their distributors were taking a sizable portion of their product into predominantly minority neighborhoods. Since they realized that they already had a core audience they figured they might as well build on it, and they did.
As I noted, with varying degrees of success. Having middle aged white guys trying to script modern black characters was kind of like having a polka band at Woodstock. But, fortunately for all of us, they noticed that too and things got much better quickly.
Yes, I am aware that the situation with the media has gotten better over the last decade or so, but you wouldn’t know that if all you did was search Google.
This issue isn’t new either. If you search is google racist you’ll get scholarly articles dating back a few years. You’ll also get a few articles pointing out that Google isn’t racist enough. I guess I should have expected that.
Nevertheless, the overall point of “out of sight, out of mind” is still very valid. And if it doesn’t get fixed we’re still stuck with an antiquated view of the world.
Too many companies and marketing firms use Google as their digital bible when it comes to research. More importantly, Google is used world wide. And, last time I checked, the majority of the world isn’t white.
If the entertainment industry is ever going to be goaded into not presenting a skewed perspective on the world at large, they first need to see that such a diverse world exists.

Obviously this is a blog and we live in a finite universe so I’m skimming to make my point. I strongly urge you to try searching yourself, based on the parameters above, and see what you find. And then share your results with Google.
If you read Neil Steinberg’s fine article this morning you know that getting diagnosed with cancer is scary. As he, correctly, points out it’s no longer the OH MY FUCKING GOD I’M GONNA DIE kind of scary, but it still gives one pause. For the record I have survived it and a dear friend of mine recently did so as well. Even so, it’s not welcome news. Which is why you took one look at the title of today’s blog and said “Well no, asshole, it can’t.” And this is why I love science. Science doesn’t jump to conclusions. It assembles facts, assesses their meanings and then compares results. If the same results keep kicking up, no matter what scientists might have believed starting out, then science has discovered a truth. And truth leads to facts. And facts are simply facts. They don’t care what you believe, they simply are. And once they exist they are used to discover new facts. And so on and so on.
So what does all of that have to do with the title of today’s blog? Quite a bit actually.
Justine Alford, over at IFLScience.com, reports that someone screwed up an experiment and stumbled onto a possible cure for cancer.
Don’t you hate when that happens?
Laboratory studies do not often go as planned, and while this is usually a source of endless frustration amongst scientists, some wonderful discoveries have been made by accident in the past, such as the pacemaker and penicillin. Now, researchers may have happened upon something that could turn out to be a powerful agent against a particularly aggressive type of cancer.
After endeavoring to find ways to prevent cancerous cells from dying during experiments, scientists from Stanford have discovered that it is possible to force leukemia cells to mature into a type of immune cell that, ironically, may help the body clear up other tumor cells. The study has been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is a rapidly-progressing cancer of the immature cells that differentiate into white blood cells, or lymphocytes. There are several different types of ALL, which are classified based on the type of lymphocyte (B cell or T cell) the cancer originates from, and how mature these cells are.
For the current study, scientists were investigating the most common type of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, known as as precursor B cell ALL, or B-ALL. As the name suggests, this cancer originates from a rogue B cell that became stuck at an early stage of maturation. These immature cells are unable to fully differentiate into normal B cells, partly because they lost some cellular molecules, known as transcription factors, which are required for their development. Transcription factors are proteins that stick to bits of DNA and then switch certain genes on or off.
B-ALL is a particularly aggressive cancer with a poor prognosis, so scientists from Stanford were keen to learn more about it with the hope of finding ways to tackle it, but they were struggling to keep cells isolated from a patient alive in the lab. “We were throwing everything at them to help them survive,” lead researcher Ravi Majeti said in a news release.
After exposing the cells to a certain transcription factor, the scientists observed that they began to change size and shape, adopting the characteristic morphology of a type of white blood cell responsible for gobbling up damaged cells or foreign material, known as a macrophage.
The team then began characterizing these cells in the lab, which revealed that they expressed similar genes to normal macrophages and were able to perform various macrophage functions, such as engulfing bacteria. Furthermore, when they added these reprogrammed cells into mice without immune systems, they did not cause cancer.
The researchers also have reason to believe that these converted cells will not only be neutralized with regards to their former identity as a cancerous cell, but they may also help the body mount an immune response against other cancerous cells lingering in the body. That’s because macrophages collect tags from abnormal cells or foreign material ready to flag down other members of the immune system for attack. Since these cells came from cancerous cells, they will possess signals that identify them as cancer.
The next stage of the project will therefore involve investigating ways to achieve this cell conversion in a clinically viable way, which has already been done for one other type of cancer.
Think of it this way, just as whiskey can turn a good woman naughty, these macrophages can turn a cancer cell good. Or, at least, kill them.
If scientists can make this work consistently this is how your world would go;
You go to the doctor, get diagnosed with cancer, give up some blood, have your mean, ugly, cancer cells treated and turned into happy, loving, macrophages, have those wonderful things injected into you and then you’d go home.
That’s it. You’re done.
Now you can go live long and prosper.
Granted, that doesn’t actually make cancer “good” for you, but it does make it a hell of a lot less scary.
There are people walking among us who believe in Bigfoot, UFOs (as alien visitors and not just something unidentified), chemtrails (because condensation trails make too much sense), President Obama is a Kenyan Muslim, or worse, follow the teachings of the Food Babe (a complete sociopath who has the I.Q. of a stone) and on and on. Little things like facts or logic don’t dissuade them. When reality conflicts with their perverted views, they deny reality. It’s that simple.
Now here’s the sad part; they’re the reasonable ones.
Paul Poisu has a great list of the new ones that will baffle you but I’m just going to highlight my faves. Make sure to click his link for even more bafflement.
The first, Kurt Cobain is still kicking.
According to this particularly inspired theory making the rounds, the bespectacled frontman of the alt-rock group Weezer is indeed Kurt Cobain in disguise, because the first thing a famous rock star who is clinically depressed does after freeing himself from the shackles of celebrity is to start the whole rise-to-fame process all over again. Still, you can kind of see some suspicious similarities in the men’s careers, if you squint while ingesting twice the human body’s limit of LSD. Weezer’s career-making Blue Album came out shortly after Cobain’s death. They both have reservations about fame, their guitar sound is somewhat similar, they’re roughly the same age, and, of course, they kind of resemble each other.
Well, not really, and once you get past the “holy shit, that’s kind of weird” aspect of those other facts, you quickly realize that there’s absolutely no freaking way this can be true. Cuomo didn’t just appear overnight — we have childhood pictures and shit, and Weezer has been around since 1992. Also, Cuomo confesses to being Nirvana’s biggest fan, which would be an unlikely statement from Cobain, a man who openly resented the band’s fame and mainstream status to the point where he contemplated joining freaking Hole.
The level of stupid there is so intense it could melt steel. But, wait, there’s more!
Bob Marley died because the CIA poisoned his shoes.
Here’s how the theory goes: Allegedly, the politically active singer might have ended up on the CIA’s shit list. So one day, a mysterious white man came to see Marley, bringing him the gift of shoes. Marley promptly tried them on and described their fit thusly: “Ouch!” This is because one of the shoes had a small metal spike in the toe. Then, a mere five months later, Marley was playing soccer when someone stepped on that very same toe. Then, the toe cancer thing, and a few active years later, a sad and untimely death. Damn, CIA, someone must have gotten an effectiveness bonus.
Look, no one is saying the CIA never tried to assassinate anyone via ridiculous means. Shit, just everything they threw at Fidel Castro earned them a permanent Customer Of The Year discount at ACME, much to the chagrin of Wile E. Coyote. However, if they were so damn keen on killing Marley, why would they have bothered to off him in a way that literally took years — and enabled him to perform and function normally for the vast majority of said years? Also, people, are we really doing the “government deliberately gives cancer to people who annoy it” thing again?
Since he did such a great job of pointing out the obvious I’ll just continue merrily along.
There’s a web site called Hard Dawn that I check in on from time to time. Mostly if I need a laugh. They travel in the usual forms of paranoia unburdened by objective verities.
Are Militant Atheists Using Chemtrails to Poison the Angels in Heaven? is an actual article.
But every now and then they ramp up the crazy to a level that truly inspires awe.
Try this on for size; Did Leonard Nimoy Fake His Own Death So He Could Seize Control of the Illuminati?
I wonder why I bother writing fiction.
Okay, let’s dumpster dive into this bad boy.
In the heady days immediately following the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Leonard Nimoy made a profound decision. It was 1964 and America was being torn apart. Ethnic minorities were rioting, the hippie movement had grown into a domestic terrorism threat and a newly-installed President Johnson was on the verge of committing troops to an all-out war in Southeast Asia. In the midst of all that turmoil, Nimoy made the crucial decision to enlist.
No, the 33-year old actor had not joined our military forces fighting against communism in Vietnam. Instead, he had enlisted in a far older, far more momentous battle, one being waged for the very future of the human race. He had decided to join the cast of the new science fiction television series, Star Trek, and in doing so, finally accepted his destiny as a foot soldier for the Illuminati agenda.
It was the culmination of decades of training, and the beginning of a 50-year rise up the dark pyramid of global power.
Ignoring, for a moment, the complete lack of verifiable facts in that mess, how many decades could a 33 year old person have dedicated to “training?” Unless he had familial ties already.
Of course he did. It’s just that the story you know about him being the child of Jewish immigrants was a lie.
Of course it was.
However, the most fascinating counterpoint to Nimoy’s manufactured backstory is the theory that he may have been the secret love child of playboy Maurice de Rothschild and Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia. Smuggled to America at an early age, he was entrusted to a nondescript family in suburban Boston, then a safe haven of New Deal liberalism despite the ravages of the Great Depression. His lineage was crucial, as we shall see, for it bound the child to the two great dynasties of hidden rule — the Romanovs and the Rothschilds. It was also a dangerous bloodline to possess, as the treachery of both families knows no bounds.
As a Rothschild, young Leonard was naturally raised as a Jew and even as a teenager, he betrayed all the trigonometric and sensual qualities of that exotic race.
Nimoy does bear a slight resemblance to Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna. As does anyone of eastern European decent. Large noses don’t make a solid genetic link. Hell I have one and no one thinks I’m the spawn of a Grand Duchess.
So to what end is Nimoy being trained? Read on.
Nimoy spent the ensuing years in Hollywood, exploring a carefully curated series of acting roles meant to educate him in the themes of futurism and power. When Gene Roddenberry, a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemason with his own ties to military intelligence, became Nimoy’s handler in the 1960s, the actor fully embraced his fated position in the New World Order disinformation machine.
Star Trek is what analysts would describe as predictive programming, i.e. a subtle way of seeding the media with clues about future events. It makes the public far more apathetic towards dangerous change. In the case of Trek, the show introduced the concept of a United Nations-style government having complete control over a multicultural society that lacked private property, elections or even genetically proper family units. Instead, we are shown a soulless empire where interspecies sexual relations are the norm and faith is derided as archaic. This is, in essence, just how the Bible describes the beginning of the End Times.
By the way, the sites that claim that Roddenberry was a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemason are so childishly written and so poorly researched as to be laughable. And they would be if fools didn’t actually believe this shit.
The article goes on to link Spock to Jay-Z & Beyonce because …. fuck you, that’s why.
All right, let’s cut to the chase. How did he fake his death and how does an 83 year old man plan on running a multinational terrorist organization?
With the stunning power of Hollywood and the NSA critical informational infrastructure behind him, Leonard Nimoy was likely no longer content to play foot soldier in the Illuminati army. When one studies his astrological divinations, it seems predicted that he would rise to challenge the old guard, the European leadership of bankers and kings. One could point to the death of Lou Reed or the sudden success of chemtrails as indicators that the Illuminati was suffering internal conflict as America became a new center of geopolitical strength.
Yet how could such a high-profile figure like Leonard Nimoy seize control of the Illuminati without the paparazzi catching wind of it all? Faking his own death seems almost predictable when one considers the options. It elevates the man to a mythical status, while subverting the genuine threat he poses to the future of our freedom. It would also be illogical not to assume that elites like Nimoy have access to medical treatments far beyond the comprehension of everyday citizens. Wouldn’t an Illuminati insider take advantage of these resources, if he was even ill in the first place?
In fact, wouldn’t it be safer to assume that Nimoy’s ties to the dark underworld of Satanism are far more likely to provide him with a lifespan beyond a normal human? It should come as no surprise that this is the very notion predicted and programmed into the Star Trek movie franchise. And yet even that theory might be a false flag, a cover up of Leonard Nimoy’s true reptilian nature, which would afford him a far longer lifespan, as so blatantly foretold in his famous catchphrase, “Live long and prosper!”
Yes, Lou Reed died because of chemtrails and, no, he didn’t actually present one plausible theory as to how Nimoy did it, just that he must have. But you knew all that already didn’t you?
Now, as to the whole reptile thing. That is a common conspiracy trope. In Paul’s story linked above reptiles are blamed for the death of Princess Diana. A guy named David Icke posited that there was this group called the Babylonian Brotherhood (featuring George W. Bush & Boxcar Willie) that. were actually reptiles wrapped in human skin. He has written numerous books on the subject. They are masterpieces of assumptions.
I’ll help you out a little here. Let’s say I tell you that blue is not really the color blue but is, in fact, yellow. And that I am Curious Yellow was the name of a (very bad) porno, and that Yellow Journalism is what was practiced by William Randolph Hearst and that yellow was, and is, the color of mustard gas then you can plainly see that Yellow is what “they” will use to poison your mind and soul with sensationalistic porn.
Unfortunately, blue is still blue and no amount of personal assertions by me will change that.
As to the Kabbalistic assertion above it is patently false. The “Live Long and Prosper” gesture is based on the priestly blessing performed by Jewish Kohanim with both hands, thumb to thumb in this same position, representing the Hebrew letter Shin (ש), which has three upward strokes similar to the position of the thumb and fingers in the salute.
Kohanim is a Jewish word defining a priest of any religion. What few hand signs that are used in Kabbala come from Jewish tradition. If you want to know more about Jewish mysticism check out The Origins of Kabballah by Allan Arkush & Gershom G. Scholem.
What’s truly dangerous about shit like this is that it encourages people to ignore reality and, instead, act on that same reality in a subversive and, occasionally, violent manner. Hard Dawn is a site that advocates violence (i.e., liberating others) and they are not alone.
Kids, the truth really is out there, it’s just not anywhere near this crap.
