Aliens 'hit our nukes': They even landed at a Suffolk base, claim airmen
September 27, 2010 - It may sound like a Spielberg movie plot, but if senior U.S. airmen are to be believed, this scenario is not science fiction.
They claim that since 1948, aliens have been hovering over UK and U.S. nuclear missile sites and deactivating the weapons-- once even landing in a British base.
Furthermore, they warn, our governments are hushing the activity up.
Captain Robert Salas, who, along with six others is to break his silence on the subject, said: 'We're talking about unidentified flying objects, as simple as that.

Aliens 'hit our nukes': They even landed at a Suffolk base, claim airmen
THE United Nations was set today to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth's first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.
Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN's little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.
She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before - and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact”.
During a talk Othman gave recently to fellow scientists, she said: “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials.

AUDIO: Oil-eating microbes impacting humans? Corexit dispersant may genetically change bacteria in Gulf
ARTICLE: USF research included in TV special on Gulf spill, Tampa Tribune, September 27, 2010:
Excerpts The [University of South Florida researchers] discovered plumes of dispersed oil at the bottom of an undersea canyon about 40 miles off the Florida Panhandle. It was found to be toxic to microscopic sea organisms, causing mutations to their DNA. If this plankton at the base of the marine food chain is contaminated, it could affect the whole ecosystem of the Gulf. "I call these canaries in the coal mine as they are the first to feel the effects," [University of South Florida researcher John Paul who is included in a documentary debuting Tuesday night in the National Geographic Channel] says. ... "The problem with mutant DNA is that it can be passed on and we don't how this will affect fish or other marine life," he says, adding that the effects could last for decades.

WASHINGTON — More than half the oil released from a busted BP well remains in the Gulf of Mexico, a presidential panel was told Monday, as the US pointman lamented a "dysfunctional" response to the disaster.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar meanwhile told the bipartisan commission that the spill had bolstered a drive to reform federal regulations for offshore drilling, promising that lessons were learnt.
In an ominous sign for Gulf residents, however, oceanographer Ian MacDonald told the probe that while much of the oil was dispersed, evaporated or removed by burning and skimming, the "remaining fraction -- over 50 percent of the total discharge -- is a highly durable material that resists further dissipation."
His assessment implied some 2.5 million barrels of oil -- or 105 million gallons -- was still embedded in the fragile ecosystem, out of the estimated 4.9 million barrels that gushed into the Gulf during the 87 days before the well was capped.
"Much of it is now buried in marine and coastal sediments," MacDonald warned, adding there was "scant evidence for bacterial degradation of this material prior to burial."

LOS ANGELES — A blistering fall heat wave sent temperatures to an all-time record high of 113 degrees in downtown Los Angeles on Monday and roasted even coastal cities in triple digits.
The city of Los Angeles opened cooling centers for citizens while firefighters were on alert for wildfires, but there was little wind amid the onslaught of dry heat.
Downtown hit 113 degrees for a few minutes at about 12:15 p.m., breaking the old all-time record of 112 degrees set on June 26, 1990, said Stuart Seto, a weather specialist at the National Weather Service office in Oxnard. Temperature records for downtown date to 1877.
It was not clear whether 113 would remain the day's high. Temperatures continued to fluctuate around 112 later in the afternoon, Seto said. The old record high for a Sept. 27 was 106 degrees.

UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record
Now a New York Times Best Seller!
Harmony Books, an imprint of The Crown Publishing Group / Random House, Inc.
"The reality of UFOs—a subject of intense interest to the general public —has now been verified at the highest levels. Based on a ten-year investigation, journalist Leslie Kean’s new book pulls back the curtain on the incredible occurrences of unexplained behavior by unknown objects over many decades, and the results are astonishing.
We know that of all UFO sightings reported, 95 percent can be explained as ordinary phenomena. However, within that remaining 5 percent, spectacular well-documented UFO events have been officially investigated by government agencies around the world, yet no conventional explanations were found.
In combination with her own insightful research, Kean has brought together over a dozen highly credible aviation witnesses and official investigators – including five generals and a former U.S. governor – who reveal the facts about UFOs in riveting, personal accounts written exclusively for this book. John Podesta, White House Chief of Staff to President Clinton and co-chair of President Obama’s transition team, provides a foreword..."

Is " The Day After Tomorrow" Happening Today? by Jeffrey Green
"...On August 29th, Lord Stirling issued a scary report warning that, "The North Atlantic Current is gone." We were hesitant to post the article before checking with sources to confirm its validity. After such research, many of the claims that Lord Stirling makes do indeed have some scientific evidence behind them. However, his claims that the North Atlantic Current is "gone," and that the cause is primarily the Gulf oil disaster and subsequent dispersant spraying, are slightly premature. Despite these assumptions, Stirling's report has enough supporting evidence to cause alarm...
...final proof was provided that the Gulf Stream had been stopped cold at the 47th longitudinal parallel with a 10 degree Celsius ocean temperature drop, and loss of velocity and energy, so that the Gulf Stream was only able to be measured by satellite to less than one-third the way across the Atlantic ocean..."

U.S. Nuclear Weapons Have Been Compromised by Unidentified Aerial Objects
PR Newswire WASHINGTON, Sept. 15
Ex-military men say unknown intruders have monitored and even tampered with American nuclear missiles
Group to call on U.S. Government to reveal the facts
WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Witness testimony from more than 120 former or retired military personnel points to an ongoing and alarming intervention by unidentified aerial objects at nuclear weapons sites, as recently as 2003. In some cases, several nuclear missiles simultaneously and inexplicably malfunctioned while a disc-shaped object silently hovered nearby. Six former U.S. Air Force officers and one former enlisted man will break their silence about these events at the National Press Club and urge the government to publicly confirm their reality.

Retired NORAD Officer's New Book Predicts a Tentative Worldwide UFO Display on October 13, 2010
A newly-published book by a retired NORAD officer predicts October 13, 2010 as the tentative date for a fleet of extraterrestrial vehicles to hover for hours over the earth's principal cities. Author says the event to be the first in a series intended to avert a planetary catastrophe resulting from increasing levels of carbon-dioxide in the earth's atmosphere dangerously approaching a "critical mass."
A newly-published 352-page book by a retired Air Force officer, Stanley A. Fulham, tentatively predicts October 13, 2010 as the date for a massive UFO display over the world’s principal cities. According to the author, the aliens will neither land nor communicate on that date; they are aware from eons of experience with other planets in similar conditions their sudden intervention would cause fear and panic.
The book, Challenges of Change (3rd ed.), reports this event will be the initial interaction in a process leading to mankind’s acceptance of the alien reality and technologies for the removal of poisonous gases from the earth’s atmosphere in 2015, if not sooner.

"...You need to make a distinction between private matters and public matters. The Biblical principle is that private sins need to be confronted privately, but public sins need to be confronted publicly. We find a number of examples of this in Scripture. For example, we find in the epistle of Third John that the Apostle John said he was going to publicly confront Diotrephes, the pastor of a local church, about his falsehoods. And we find, as we have seen before, that the Apostle Paul publicly confronted the Apostle Peter at Antioch when Peter publicly strayed from the one true Gospel into legalism.
If someone has persisted in false teaching from the pulpit, or in a Sunday school class, or in a home Bible study, or has persistently written false teaching in books or other publications, this is a public matter. It is not a private sin. And so it immediately becomes a matter to be dealt with by the church as a body, and not on a private basis. And that is because there is more than the spiritual welfare of one individual or a even handful of individuals at stake. The spiritual welfare of the entire church is at stake."

Pastor Ken Silva present the facts on Rick Warren's coming out of the closet regarding the endorsement and the practice of Catholic mysticism...
"I don’t know about you, but I’m hearing sinful ecumenicism in Rick Warren considering the apostate Roman Catholic Church, whose own anathema remains upon the very Gospel of Jesus Christ itself, a Christian denomination. The Church of Rome clearly preaches a different gospel; and if he truly was a “faithful pastor,” then Rick Warren would repent of his sin of being double-minded in accepting Rome’s non-gospel as valid:
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:6-9)
And he certainly wouldn’t leading his flock right back into the religious spiritual bondage of this romanticized Roman Catholic mysticism."

Italian police seize $30M from Vatican in probe
By NICOLE WINFIELD, Associated Press Writer Nicole Winfield
VATICAN CITY – Italian authorities seized euro23 million ($30 million) from a Vatican bank account Tuesday and said they have begun investigating top officials of the Vatican bank in connection with a money-laundering probe.
The Vatican said it was "perplexed and surprised" by the investigation.
Italian financial police seized the money as a precaution and prosecutors placed the Vatican bank's chairman and director general under investigation for alleged mistakes linked to violations of Italy's anti-laundering laws, news reports said.
The investigation is not the first trouble for the bank — formally known as the Institute for Works of Religion. In the 1980s, it was involved in a major scandal that resulted in a banker, dubbed "God's Banker" because of his close ties to the Vatican, being found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London.
The Vatican expressed full trust in the chairman of the bank, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, and his director-general, identified by the Vatican directory as Paolo Cipriani. It said the bank had been working for some time to make its finances more transparent to comply with anti-terrorism and anti-money-laundering regulations.
"The Holy see is perplexed and surprised by the initiatives of the Rome prosecutors, considering the data necessary is already available at the Bank of Italy," it said in a statement.

The Plaquemines Parish Inland Waterways Strike Force claims oil was spotted in pictures of the dead fish.
The group is now attempting to find if the BP oil spill was connected to the incident, known as a "fish kill".
The cause of the fish kill has not been determined, but such events typically happen due to depleted oxygen levels.

Headlines point to the New World Order in the shadow of the September 11th anniversary...
Power Shifts and Security, keynote speaker Dr. Henry Kissinger, The 8th IISS Global Strategic Review:
...Niall Ferguson has coined the term of an ‘apolar world’, in which the United States gradually recedes from its hegemonic role and is replaced by…nobody. That cannot happen, because it is the nature of the political world that it abhors a vacuum. That is the international system.
Chaos may occur, but when it does it will sooner or later settle down to some new order. It is the task of statesmanship, and of groups like this, to try to generate the possibility, so that what must happen ultimately will happen soon, and save humanity from untold suffering. -
U.N. Looks to Take Charge of World's Agenda

IMF Prepares To Lead New Economic Order As US Dollar Declines
Ever since its inception 66 years ago, the International Monetary Fund has fancied itself at the center of the global economy.
But only now does the prospect of a multilateral monetary authority providing stability to the international financial system seem even remotely possible. That's because for the first time in decades there are legitimate uncertainties surrounding the one institution that does play that role: the U.S. dollar.
In that context, a couple of recent IMF-related announcements are more important than they normally would be.
On Monday, the IMF said it would dramatically increase lending to a wide array of developing countries through a new "precautionary credit line" under which they would pre-qualify for loans to be drawn upon in a crisis.
Then on Tuesday, South Korea, which will host the Group of 20 nations summit in November, said it would no longer keep its proposal for a global system of currency swaps on the agenda of that meeting. Instead, it would seek a new role for the IMF for containing global financial turmoil--in effect, endorsing the IMF's alternative plan for a "global stabilization mechanism," which would be available to groups of countries.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton declared Wednesday that "a new American moment" has arrived in international relations, "a moment when our global leadership is essential, even if we must often lead in new ways."
In a lengthy speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in which she defended the Obama administration's foreign policy approach, Clinton said that "this is a moment that must be seized - through hard work and bold decisions - to lay the foundations for lasting American leadership for decades to come."
..."This is no argument for America to go it alone - far from it," Clinton said. "The world looks to us because America has the reach and resolve to mobilize the shared effort needed to solve problems on a global scale - in defense of our own interests, but also as a force for progress. In this we have no rival."
She added: "For the United States, global leadership is both a responsibility and an unparalleled opportunity."

The Yamim Noraim (the Awesome Days) are the days of teshuva (returning or repenting). These ten days are also known as "Ten Days of Repentance”. These are the ten days, of repentance, between Yom Teruah (Rosh HaShanah – Feast of Trumpets) and Yom HaKippurim (Yom Kippur – Day of Atonement). These are days of introspection, and hopefully, growth and change. These days are also known as bein keseh L'asor, between concealments [Yom Teruah] and the tenth [Yom HaKippurim]. These names serve to remind us that we are suspended between two days of judgement: Yom Teruah, when our verdict is inscribed, and Yom HaKippurim when our judgement is sealed.

Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Florida is yet another "Christian" pastor who has fallen into the trap of turning his back on the pastor's Biblical role and turned his pulpit into a political stage. This time, lives may hang in the balance.
He and his "church" plan a public burning of the Koran on September 11, 2010.
He has turned his back on the essential Christian doctrines of loving thy neighbor as taught by Christ.
Matthew 22:34-40 (English Standard Version)
The Great Commandment
34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" 37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."
Pastor Terry Jones, apparently blinded by self righteousness, seems to have forgotten that:
- Christians are not to be entangled in the political pursuits
- Christ did not defend himself against Pilot or the Roman Empire.
- Christians do not wrestle against men, but against spiritual forces
- The Christian does not wage a physical (or political ) battle
Some may view Pastor Jones as a patriot. Using the Biblical standard, he is no pastor. His message and actions are unbiblical. Using the First Amendment as protection for his unbiblical actions is defrauding the The Scriptures. A wolf in sheeps' clothing.
Congratulations Pastor Jones, the real fire you are starting is the fire that will burn Christians at the stake once again.

The earthquake that devastated a city in New Zealand tore open a new 11ft faultine in the Earth’s surface.
The 7.1-magnitude quake which hit Christchurch, the country’s second-largest city, destroyed about 500 buildings and caused an estimated £930million of damage.
But hundreds of lives were saved by tough building rules, it was claimed. Only two injuries were reported.
The quake was caused by the continuing collision between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates, said Professor Mark Quigley, of Canterbury University.
‘One side of the Earth has lurched to the right ... up to 11ft and in some places been thrust up,’ he said. ‘We went and saw two houses that were completely snapped in half by the earthquake.’
The quake cut power across the region, roads were blocked by debris and gas and water supplies were disrupted.

...Who is this masked bandit? What is this mysterious force that has the potential to outpace the spill’s catastrophic events thus far? Though it may sound like a simple answer, (and it is not easy to swallow) the truth is that this tragedy is silent, and if you live in the Gulf, it is most likely affecting you right now as you read this. What is it? Your health may be in extreme jeopardy due to the toxic effects of the dispersant Corexit and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from crude oil inundating the air. Through recent studies conducted under the combined efforts of Michelle Nix of Gulf Coast Oil Spill Volunteers, Jo Billups and Karen Harvill of Sassafrass, Dr. Robert Naman, Project Gulf Impact, medical professionals, and the brave Gulf residents who have agreed to be tested, the toxic health effects of the poisons in the air and in the sea have been documented for the first time. The results? This stands to become one of the greatest health tragedies The United States has ever seen.
Project Gulf Impact © 2010
If this is such a powerful threat, why has it gone so under reported for so long? Why is mainstream media ignoring these potentially large-scale health problems? The scenario’s biggest problem is the scenario itself. Perpetrated by a corporation, the influx of relief that would ordinarily stream in after most acts of God has quietly gone elsewhere.
Why is this killer so silent? Why have we not heard much about the disastrous health effects of this oil and dispersant in the air? Why are everyday citizens not catching on to what gargantuan health problems are coming in the not-so-distant future, affecting everyone, even the journalists who should be reporting on it? The answer may seem strange, and it is complex, however the biggest problem facing this mounting horrific scenario is… the BP oil spill was not a hurricane.

Pope meets Israeli president from Catholic Herald
Pope Benedict XVI and Israeli President Shimon Peres met in a private audience this week as the first direct peace talks in two years between Israeli and Palestinian leaders were launched in the United States.
The two leaders expressed hopes that the renewal of direct talks in Washington would contribute to the “reaching of an agreement that is respectful of the legitimate aspirations of the two peoples and capable of bringing lasting peace to the Holy Land and the entire region”, according to the Vatican.
The closed-door, 40-minute audience at the papal summer residence yesterday, on September 2, was “cordial”, the Vatican said in a written statement.
Mr Peres also met privately for 30 minutes with Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican’s secretary of state, and Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, secretary for relations with states.

Beck's "Black Regiment"
On August 28, 2010, in one of the most massive public demonstrations in American history, a huge crowd — by some estimates nearly half a million people — gathered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington for talk-show host Glenn Beck's "Restore Honor in America" rally. Joining Beck on the platform were over 240 male and female clergy belonging to the ecumenical ministerial group he has formed, the "Black-Robed Regiment".
The term "Black-Robed Regiment" is a reference to clergymen of the Revolutionary War era, who were said to form an additional "regiment" of the Continental Army as they spurred revolutionary fervor from their pulpits.
As Beck told Fox News host Bill O'Reilly after the rally, the group on the memorial steps consisted of "240 pastors, priests, rabbis and imams on stage [who] all locked arms saying the principles of America need to be taught from the pulpit." Beck said that even atheists are welcome to be involved in the movement, because they know how to "self-regulate" in the same way that Christians and Jews follow the Ten Commandments.
According to published news reports, among those who have enlisted in Beck's "Black-Robed Regiment" are Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr.; former Focus on the Family president James Dobson; Richard Land, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention; rabbi and management consultant David Lapin; television star and columnist Chuck Norris; mega-church pastor John Hagee; a number of Roman Catholic priests; and even some Muslim imams.
Beck hosted a pre-rally "Divine Destiny" event featuring members of the "regiment" in the concert hall of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Rabbi Lapin, steeped in his Christ-denying legalism, spoke at the event without a microphone because he believes that Jews are not supposed to turn on electricity on the Sabbath.
Beck said, “These men and women here don’t agree on fundamentals. They don’t agree on everything that every church teaches. What they do agree on is that God is the answer.”
Echoing the spiritually bankrupt Moral-Majority philosophy of his late father, Jerry Falwell, Jr. said this: “Glenn Beck’s Mormon faith is irrelevant. People of all faiths, all races and all creeds spoke and attended the event. Nobody was there to endorse anyone else’s faith..."

Ahead of start of direct peace talks in Washington, Defense Minister Ehud Barak says Jerusalem's Arab neighborhoods will be part of a Palestinian state; a 'special regime' to govern holy sites.
What are the principles of a peace deal that you believe can be agreed upon by the conclusion of the talks?
"Two states for two nations; an end to the conflict and the end of all future demands; the demarcation of a border that will run inside the Land of Israel, and within that border will lie a solid Jewish majority for generations and on the other side will be a demilitarized Palestinian state but one that will be viable politically, economically, and territorially; keeping the settlement blocs in our hands; retrieving and relocating the isolated settlements into the settlement blocs or within Israel; a solution to the refugee problem [whereby refugees return to] the Palestinian state or are rehabilitated by international aid; comprehensive security arrangements and a solution to the Jerusalem problem."
What is the solution in Jerusalem?
"West Jerusalem and 12 Jewish neighborhoods that are home to 200,000 residents will be ours. The Arab neighborhoods in which close to a quarter million Palestinians live will be theirs. There will be a special regime in place along with agreed upon arrangements in the Old City, the Mount of Olives and the City of David."
US Mideast envoy George Mitchell on Tuesday night stressed the US belief in the possibility of the sides reaching an agreement within a year, in a briefing for reporters held before the West Bank attack which left four Israelis dead.
He also began to sketch out the American perspective of how talks would proceed, embracing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s suggestion that he meet personally with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas every two weeks.
“We think that’s a sensible approach which we hope is undertaken,” Mitchell said, also pointing to an American desire to see “meetings at other levels on a consistent basis.” He indicated that the US would not be “physically represented in every single meeting” because US officials “recognize the value of direct, bilateral discussion between the parties.”
He also stressed that an agreement must be made by the two sides alone, saying, “We recognize that this is a bilateral negotiation and in the end the parties must make this decision by and for themselves.”
But he also pointed to a robust American involvement on an “intensive basis,” as he noted that “the United States will play an active and sustained role in the process.”
Tuesday was a case in point, as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had meetings scheduled with Netanyahu and Abbas and her counterparts from Jordan and Egypt.
