Canada's PM To Putin: "I Guess I'll Shake Your Hand..." Putin's Response "Was Not Positive"

by Zero Hedge | November 16, 2014

Following last week’s (humiliating for the US) APEC meeting in Beijing, in which the BRIC nations clearly distanced themselves from the “developed world” and the topic of the “Russian invasion of Ukraine” was largely missing as it is clearly not in the interest of the Pacific nations to warmonger when the two key nations, Russia and China are obviously not complying with the western media ‘straight to populism‘ narrative, it was time for another major world summit, this time in the quite “western” Brisbane, Australia.

It was here that the G-7 part of the G-20 nations seized the opportunity to quickly pivot against Moscow and remind Europe that the reason why Europe is in a triple-dip recession (if one removes the GDP “boost” from hookers and blow) is because of Russia’s “take over” of east Ukraine, ignoring the reality that it was the US State Department’s Victoria Nuland that incited the Kiev coup and the west that imposed the “costly” sanctions on Russia which have hurt Germany and Europe just as badly. This was all largely lost on the local, as outside the summit, Ukrainian Australians staged an anti-Putin protest, wearing headbands reading “Putin, Killer”.

It was a full court press from the start: as the NYT reports, “at a speech at a university in Brisbane, Mr. Obama called Russia’s aggression against Ukraine a “threat to the world, as we saw in the appalling shoot down of MH-17, a tragedy that took so many innocent lives, among them your fellow citizens,” a reference to the Australian citizens and residents who were killed when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 went down in eastern Ukraine.

“As your ally and friend, America shares the grief of these Australian families, and we share the determination of your nation for justice and accountability,” Mr. Obama said.”

This charade was set to continue Sunday, when leaders from the European Union planned to meet with Mr. Obama to discuss Ukraine, among other issues, said Herman Van Rompuy, the president of the European Council. He said the European Union was committed to finding a political solution to the crisis.

“We will continue to use all the diplomatic tools, including sanctions, at our disposal,” he said.

Indeed, as Reuters adds “Western leaders warned Vladimir Putin at a G20 summit on Saturday that he risked more economic sanctions if he failed to end Russian backing for separatist rebels in Ukraine.”

But perhaps the best confirmation that all the G-20 meeting was nothing but a giant populist photo-op comes from Bloomberg which reports that “Russian President Vladimir Putin got a blunt message when he approached Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for a handshake at today’s Group of 20 summit in Brisbane, Australia.

“I guess I’ll shake your hand but I have only one thing to say to you: you need to get out of Ukraine,” Harper told Putin, the prime minister’s spokesman Jason MacDonald said in an e-mail.

Putin’s response to the comment wasn’t positive, MacDonald said, without elaborating. Putin and Harper talked briefly, according to Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

“Indeed Harper told Putin that Russia should leave Ukraine,” Peskov said by phone today in Brisbane. Putin told him that this is impossible because they are not there.”    Which is the real TRUTH” known by all alternative media station

Asked about the tone of the meeting between the two leaders, Peskov said “it was within the bounds of decency.”

Say no more.

Righteous Russian President Vladimir Putin, right,

Yet at the end of the day, captioned photo-op or not, one wonders how much of all the front-page drama is even remotely real when every single time the west goes on the “offensive” against Putin with “costs” just to have a convenient scapegoat for Europe’s ongoing depression, one hears in the back of one head the following exchange:

Obama: “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir”


U.S. Army: Ebola Goes Airborne Once Temperature Drops
Ebola can go airborne but hasn’t in West Africa because it’s too warm, researchers conclude

U.S. Army: Ebola Goes Airborne Once Temperature Drops

Ebola can spread by air in cold, dry weather common to the U.S. but not West Africa, presenting a “possible, serious threat” to the public, according to two studies by U.S. Army scientists.

After successfully exposing monkeys to airborne Ebola, which “caused a rapidly fatal disease in 4-5 days,” scientists with the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) concluded Ebola can spread through air but likely hasn’t in Equatorial Africa because the region is too warm, with temperatures rarely dropping below 65°F.

“We… demonstrated aerosol transmission of Ebola virus at lower temperature and humidity than that normally present in sub-Saharan Africa,” the 1995 study entitled Lethal Experimental Infections of Rhesus Monkeys by Aerosolized Ebola Virus reported. “Ebola virus sensitivity to the high temperatures and humidity in the thatched, mud, and wattle huts shared by infected family members in southern Sudan and northern Zaire may have been a factor limiting aerosol transmission of Ebola virus in the African epidemics.”

“Both elevated temperature and relative humidity have been shown to reduce the aerosol stability of viruses.”

1995study1

1995page2

The study also referred to the 1989 Ebola outbreak at a primate quarantine facility in Reston, Va., in which the virus rapidly spread between unconnected rooms.

“While infections in adjacent cages may have occurred by droplet contact, infections in distant cages suggests aerosol transmission, as evidence of direct physical contact with an infected source could not be established,” the study added.

It is interesting to note this outbreak occurred in December 1989, when temperatures in Reston were usually below freezing, and it’s unlikely the indoor temperature in the vast quarantine facility was much higher.

The tropical climates of the world, including the Ebola hot zone of West Africa but obviously excluding the U.S. and Europe, which have also had cases of Ebola.

A 2012 study also by the USAMRIID, which exposed monkeys to an airborne filovirus similar to Ebola, reached a similar conclusion to the 1995 study.

“There is no strong evidence of secondary transmission by the aerosol route in African filovirus outbreaks; however, aerosol transmission is thought to be possible and may occur in conditions of lower temperature and humidity which may not have been factors in outbreaks in warmer climates,” the study entitled A Characterization of Aerosolized Sudan Virus Infection in African Green Monkeys, Cynomologus Macaques and Rhesus Macaques stated.

The study pointed out that filoviruses, which include Ebola and the Sudan virus used in this particular study, have stability in aerosol form comparable to influenza.

“Filoviruses in aerosol form are therefore considered a possible, serious threat to the health and safety of the public,” it added.

1021142012page1

And the Pentagon took this threat of airborne filoviruses so seriously that it organized a Filovirus Medical Countermeasures Workshop with the Department of Health and Human Services in 2013.

“The DoD seeks a trivalent filovirus vaccine that is effective against aerosol exposure and protective against filovirus disease for at least one year,” the executive summary of the workshop stated.

The Pentagon’s concern with airborne Ebola runs contrary to health officials who claim the disease can’t spread through coughing and sneezing, but according to the Army studies, that may only be true in tropical climates.

“How much airborne transmission will occur will be a function of how well Ebola induces coughing and sneezing in its victims in cold weather climates,” the web site potrblog.com suggested. “Coughing and nasal bleeding are both reported symptoms in Africa, so the worst should be expected.”


Enoch and Elijah – Witnesses to

POLE SHIFTS

Thursday, October 16, 2014 6:56

(Before It’s News)

Enoch and Elijah – Witnesses to Pole Shifts?

The early theologians Irenaeus and Hippolytus may have been the last heirs to the uncorrupted oral tradition of the Apostles, and both of them said that Enoch and Elijah were the two witnesses we will see in the future preaching and dying on the streets of Jerusalem in the end times.  The Bible tells us that their presence will be a sign that the Second Coming is imminent.  I believe their stories also tell of pole shifts in our past, and lend additional support to the idea that they will be a witness to an upcoming pole shift, when we receive “a new heaven and a new earth.”

The Bible tells us that Enoch lived a total of 365 years.  This lifespan brings two obvious ideas to mind: first, that no one normally lives that long – and second, that the years of Enoch’s life match the number of days in a year.  If this is meant to draw our attention to the sun and the number of days it takes for the earth to orbit the sun, what else might we take from the story of Enoch to apply to the sun?

Enoch’s life is broken down into two portions: at the age of 65 he fathered Methuselah, then continued to live another 300 years before he “walked with God” and was “translated away so that he did not see death.” (Hebrews 11:5)  The word “translated” comes from the Greek “metatithemi” which means “taken to another place.”  Because I have spent many years researching topics like pole shifts, this makes me think the story of Enoch may incorporate a coded message about a pole shift event in the distant past when the sun (symbolized by Enoch in this story) would have been positioned in the sky next to the galactic center (God) when it suddenly shifted its apparent position in the sky and was “taken to another place.”

Chichen_Itza-Wiki

I also suspect that the way the Bible breaks down Enoch’s life into two unequal portions might be similar to the way the Maya broke their year down based on the dates on which the sun passes directly overhead in the zenith.  Every spring equinox in March, the sun is directly above the equator at noon.  Lands north of the equator and south of the Tropic of Cancer witness the sun directly overhead at noon at some point prior to the first day of summer.  For example, at Chichen Itza, where the Maya built the great Pyramid of Kukulkan, the sun is directly overhead on May 22.  The sun appears to keep moving north until summer, then starts to fall southwards again.  Chichen Itza experiences a second solar zenith on July 19.  At another Mayan city (Izapa – which is farther south, at a different latitude) where this pattern was first recognized, the two zenith dates are 105 days apart, and the Maya there broke the year into 105 and 260 portions based on the spread of the zenith passage dates at Izapa’s latitude.  What latitude, I wondered, would experience zenith passage dates 65 days apart – and could such zenith dates possibly point us to the previous position of Jerusalem, before the last pole shift?

A little research led me to a chart labelled “Zenith passage dates of the Sun for Observers in Different Latitudes” in Anthony Aveni’s Skywatchers of Ancient Mexico.  Just below 20 degrees north there are 65 days between zenith dates.  Could this be the latitude the holy site we now know as Jerusalem used to be located at prior to the last major shift of the earth’s crust relative to its axis of rotation?  Could the location of this ancient holy site possibly even explain why the Maya had a special term for the 65 day period (Aveni calls it the Cociyo) when neither Izapa nor Chichen Itza experience zeniths 65 days apart?

At first glance, this seems to be a dead end and a bad theory, because we know from other data that the previous North Pole was located on the west side of Hudson Bay.  When the North Pole was there, the land that is now called Jerusalem was approximately eleven and a half degrees north latitude, not just under twenty degrees north latitude.   Jerusalem, at its former latitude, had zenith passage dates well over 100 days apart.  However, I soon noticed that the change in latitude – the northward movement Jerusalem experienced as a result of the last pole shift – is approximately 19.8 degrees.  Which means that Enoch’s being taken away in a “translation” and the years of his life may be astronomical references to a pole shift after all.

the image above may approximate the next position of the “new earth” if the North Pole is near Lake Baikal, as Professor Charles Hapgood suggests it might be in his books.

I believe that cosmic events emanating from the galactic center cause recurring, periodic, and predictable pole shifts on earth.  At the same time I believe the sun will appear to be dark (Revelation 6:12 “the sun became black as sackcloth”) for three days, at the point in the year when it appears at the crossing point of the galactic axis and the ecliptic – the apparent path of the sun and planets.  I suspect it is no coincidence that Jesus died on a cross and was dead for three days and that we are told the sun went dark when he died.  Jonah was in darkness in the belly of the whale for three days, and I believe this is a reference to the sun going dark as it passes through the cosmic leviathan of the Milky Way’s central bulge along the galactic axis.

Elijah encountered “a chariot of fire.”   The Book of Enoch mentions “the sun… and the chariot in which it rises.” (Enoch 72:5)  We can safely assume Elijah represents another heavenly body which encountered the sun. “And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven” just after he walked past Bethel (Beth-El = the house of God = the galactic center) and crossed the Jordan River (the Milky Way) and encountered the chariot of fire (the sun.)  So this occurred when the sun (and some other heavenly body – I suggest Jupiter) had just passed the galactic center and the axis of the Milky Way.  2 Kings 2:17 describes the men sent out to look for Elijah after he disappeared – “They searched three days but could not find him.”  Another symbolic reference to the three days of darkness and confusion.

BOWL-4-SUN-ANGEL

And then one of the even stranger comments in the Bible appears in 2 Kings 2:24 “Two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads” from Bethel who had previously mocked Elijah’s son.  Now I have been to that part of Israel.  I have stood in the Jordan River.  Trees are scarce, and I never saw “woods” or a forest dense enough that bears could emerge and suddenly surprise anyone.  And even if we grant that there had been thick woods and a pair of real bears, can you imagine 42 young men not scattering and running off in different directions?  Surely a bear could kill a lad or two, but forty-two of them?  As C.M. Houck commented in The Celestial Spheres: Keys to the Suppressed wisdom of the Ancients: “How could two bears possibly manage to outrun, catch, and destroy forty-two terrified, hyperactive juvenile delinquents?  They couldn’t.  This is sacred language.”  And what I think he means is that this is another astronomical reference, this time to the two “polar bears” – the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor – the Big Bear and Little Bear near the celestial North Pole.  I suggest that during the last pole shift, it was noticed that these “bears” seemed to suddenly move far faster than usual into the sky, corresponding with the sudden disappearance of 42 visible stars which unexpectedly fell below the opposite horizon.

In my last book, End Times and 2019, I conclude that the Bible, the Maya, and the Egyptians all left clues pointing to the next pole shift coinciding with the end of the Tribulation and Judgment Day in late December, 2019.  I suggest that Jupiter is the astronomical representation of the prophet Elijah, that the Sun represents Jesus, and that the conjunction of Jupiter and the Sun on Judgment Day represents Elijah anointing Jesus Christ as King.  I believe that Enoch and Elijah have been portrayed as witnesses to a previous pole shift, and that their stories give us clues about that last pole shift.  I believe they will be the two end times witnesses of the tribulation, and that they will witness during the reign of the Antichrist, just before the next catastrophic pole shift in 2019.  If you appreciate my application of “forensic astronomy” to Bible prophecy as detailed above, you will probably appreciate both my previous book – End Times and 2019 – and my new book focusing on events in the middle of the final seven years in June 2016 – Antichrist 2016-2019.

Planet X Puzzle

Sep 18, 2014

http://earthshiftx.com/planet-x-puzzle-part-5/.html

In this article we will look at different news topics happening at the time, and try give the reader a big picture of what is happening at the current time. Many mainstream media outlets will show you a small part of the picture but will never show you the big picture and how it could relate to planet x.

Puzzle

Ebola

What better way to bring in worldwide martial law given announcement of a rogue planet traveling through our solar system? This would not require you to have police and military on the streets, as people would not leave their homes if the ebola situation continues to worsen, which it is doing at the time.

ebola

The latest headline shows a 48-year-old volunteer who is receiving the ebola vaccine, as the second human trial. Another news headline reads that congress is worried ebola could hit the United States and become more contagious.

link1 | link2

What is interesting about this entire situation is that immediately after the first ebola cases were starting to be reported this was a global emergency. Almost as if this entire event was planned right out of the gate. Now we have the associated press stating that ebola cases could double every three weeks, which is not good at all.

In our opinion this situation is being used in two parts, 1. A mega distraction from the increasing earth changes and nearby presence of planet x 2. To push vaccinations on the populations of the world, which are known to give people problems.

Distractions & Isis

distraction

When watching a recent CNN broadcast we noticed the emphasis being placed on ISIS and the long segments of the news being focused on the threat. Even though there are a host of many things happening at the current time.

As planet x becomes more visible in the coming months more distractions will take place, such as the recent comments from Joan Rivers about Michelle Obama being a transvestite, and Obama being gay.

There are a long list of other distractions which have been played out in recent years, such as the revealing of the illuminati, and a host of other conspiracy facts, that have now come to light. What better way to get the public attention on these issues as an in-bound rogue planet enters into our solar system.

Resignations

11

Suddenly we have a press secretary by the name of Rachel MacGregor who suddenly resigns. The navy removed three top commanding officers on a ship called the “destroyer” while out at sea. It is interesting to note the name of the ship, which is similar to the Egyptian “destroyer” planet x aka nibiru.

On top of the strange resignations as of late, we have witnessed the militarization of the police departments in some areas of the United States and across the globe. We have also witnessed the increase in hints of something yet to come, with a recent article out of NBC news saying to “Expect more 9.0 earthquakes”(read more).

And of course just recently the president announces September 2014 as National Preparedness Month?!  It is clear something big is on the horizon and those in the know, continue to make their plans.

Long Sunset & Red Skies

2014-06-17 19.50.44

The longer than normal sunsets are now apparent, as one day we witnessed light beams coming from the sky, and the sun has already dropped below the horizon line. This visual display is 100% evidence of an in-bound sun that soon the entire world will start pointing at and talking about, as the cover up is about to be blown wide open.

The red skies are now on the rise, and sky even has a hint of gray, as the red iron oxide tail of planet is being reflected by the sun. Watch for increased visibility this October in the western sky near sunset time. Take note, there are other people in other countries now seeing planet x at the moment.

Indo-Australian Plate Activity

Indonesia

The plate housing Indonesia is currently in the process of breaking up, with volcanic activity now taking place at the Mayon volcano as 12,000 people have now been evacuated. The Rabaul volcano is also generating an ash plume, and disrupting flights in the nearby area.

Of course these aren’t the only active volcanoes mount Slamet is currently spewing lava and gas during its eruption seen from the Pandasari village in Brebes.

In this same region we all witnessed a magnitude 7.1 earthquake downgraded to a magnitude 6.7 earthquake which took place in nearby Guam.  This was in the earthquake watch window which we posted previously on our website, due to the magnetic compression taking place over the past weekend.

This magnetic compression is continuing and is lasting for a long period, expect another strong earthquake in another part of the world. This key area in Indonesia will be an ongoing area to watch, as once the pressure is released from the planet x passage, expect major adjustments to occur.

Planet X

map of the world

source

To prepare for planet x, getting to higher elevation and leaving coastal areas is a smart idea, as the oceans will be sloshing back and forth during the time of passage. 200 – 1,000 feet above sea level is ideal, and in-land is also an ideal.

You need to know what is your current sea level so you can get to a higher ground. Here is a link below that will helping in figuring all of this out now below:

http://poleshift.ning.com

Start on the top center of that link, and you will find out everything that you need to do to survive the pole shift, and on our planet x research page we have part b of the presentation which goes over survival tips.

A recent experience has shown us that the sun is generating skin biting neutrinos, as we witnessed yesterday. Planet x is heating up the sun, causing the whitish color and many people experiencing the burning effects on their skin.

Planet X – Nibiru

“The Worst of the Cover-Up”

From ZETA TALK

http://poleshift.ning.com/profiles/blogs/the-worst-of-the-cover-up

What does it take to mask the truth of a passing planet that bores through the inner solar system every few thousand years, leaving unbridled destruction in its wake?  What lengths are required to deny and distort the plethora of evidence that proves this planet has returned and is poised to inflict yet another devastating passage?

The most blatant lies of omission and commission are presented here to demonstrate just how pervasively the existence of Planet X has been systematically obfuscated and categorically denied by an intractable cover-up.

Bird Deaths

Providing highly improbable explanations for the increasing incidents of mysterious bird deaths around the world, the cover-up has succeeded only in eroding the public’s trust of any "official causes" relayed to them through the media.

"Birds are sensitive to methane gas, which when released from the air floats upward as it is lighter than air. Thus, unless humans are around to smell the distinctive scent of methane gas, they would be unware of the release of this gas due to stretched rock beneath their feet. The birds, however, are in the path of this rising cloud, and die or become disabled enough to drop. Canaries were formerly used in coal mines for this reason. If they were singing, there was no methane about, but if they dropped over then the miners had their clue to leave the mine shaft quickly!"

Booms

Unexplained booms are being reported with increasing frequency, alarming local residents who have grown incredulous of the many implausible explanations provided by the authorities.  By randomly attributing this widespread phenomena to mining activity, military training, ordnance disposal, sonic booms, fireworks, tannerite and even cryoseisms, the cover-up has again portrayed their desperation in hiding the truth of Planet X from the common man.

"Booms are caused by one of several phenomena, all related to plate stress and adjustment. One result is that due to an adjustments elsewhere a ripple travels through the land, the type of ripple that many report seeing during an earthquake. Close to the epicenter of an earthquake, such ripples are waves of land (above or below the waves). The troughs are deep, the crests high, and land is seen rumpling up many feet into the air and traveling during earthquakes, a horrifying view. The farther from the epicenter the more spread out the waves, so the crests and troughs are slight and the waves have a long distance from each other. This causes one type of boom, where a dropping or heaving ground causes the air above to clap as it rushes to fill a void. Clapping air is of course what causes thunder claps, but there the void is caused by superheated air from a lightning flash.

"Another result of adjustments elsewhere causing a boom is in the stretch zone. Land sinks because the rock supports underneath have pulled apart, and boom, the air claps. This can be land pulling apart under water too, causing the same phenomena of clapping air in the air over the water. The boom is occurring over where the land has dropped, which might relate to your safety nearby. If you are in the stretch zone, such stretch zone results as sinkholes or dropping bridges that pulled out of their moorings or meandering rivers choosing a new and lower path through the land nearby can occur. Yet another cause of booms is snapping rock. If the rock is heaving, trying to lift one section of a strata so that is has little support beneath it, then this rock strata can snap. This can also occur where compression or mountain building is occurring. Just look at that jutting rock. Something caused it to snap and jut!" ZetaTalk: December 11, 2010

Chemtrails

Many have observed the deployment of airborne chemicals by high-altitude aircraft, conspicuously criss-crossing the sky and creating a diffusing haze around the Sun.  While the uninitiated may attribute such displays to be innocuous contrails, such blatant attempts to mask the increasing visibility of Planet X and its components around the Sun will ultimately fail and be remembered for the atrocities for which they were originally intended.

"We have mentioned that chemtrails originally had the purpose of testing how well humans in the flight path could resist various microbes and chemicals that would sicken them. The point was to delay them as they attempted to migrate toward enclaves of the wealthy, for instance, to sicken those leaving LA and trying to reach Utah. Behind these tests was a more sinister purpose, to poison and kill the migrants. When the US military discovered the plan, being openly discussed at times in the back rooms of the White House, they rebelled and refused to have any part of chemtrail activity in the future. Where the campaign was being conducted by the wealthy, their plan was to use the US military when the time came, and without the cooperation of the US military, this plan could not succeed. Thereafter, chemtrails were used to fog up the view of Planet X. In some cases, tests were done to determine where the drift would go, where the chemtrails were pushed by the prevailing westerlies. Since sunrise and sunset are the danger times when Planet X might be sighted, these are the main fogging target times." ZetaTalk: Chemtrails

Crop Circles

For untold millennia, crop circles have been provided to warn the inhabitants of Earth of the periodic passage of Planet X, aka Nibiru, and it’s entourage of moons and debris. Hundreds of these spectacular portrayals have been splayed across vast fields of wheat, barley and grass in recent years, each containing a specific message pertaining to the approaching Pole Shift and Transformation. The Cover-up has responded to these stunning alien displays with sloppy and unmistakable crop circle hoaxes, along with defacing authentic crop circles. While the reporting of genuine crop circles has decreased since 2012, the Circle Makers continue to articulate their warnings to the subconscious of mankind through this highly evolved means of communication regardless of the Cover-up’s endless attempts to confuse the common man.

"Humans have always stood in awe of crop circles as you can be assured this is not the first era where they have been prevalent. They speak to the subconscious, which sees the patterns and senses their meaning, and the conscious hasn’t a clue. What is their meaning?

"Crop Circles are telling you, in a universal language, of coming events, and we are speaking here not only of physical events, such as the pending pole shift, but spiritual as well. In the past these simple but eloquent messages were left, with increasing frequency and urgency, leading up to the shift.

"This time, because of the Transformation, there is more than one message to relay."

Fireballs

Smoke trail of fireball that exploded over Russia on February 15, 2013 injuring 1200 and damaging thousands of buildings.

The Zetas have long predicted Earth’s atmosphere would be assaulted by debris in the years preceding the passage of Planet X.  NASA has offered various flaccid explanations, from meteor showers to asteroid swarms to rogue Near Earth Objects, all of which fail to account for the increasing incidence of fireballs exploding in Earth’s atmosphere.  Now that such incidents are being reported on nearly a daily basis, media coverage has grown sparse  – yet another accurate Zeta prediction.

"Meteor and space trash activity will increase, going into the passage, far ahead of the actual passage itself. This trash is unsettled and plunges into the Earth’s atmosphere. There will be increasing activity of this nature – larger meteors, more than just dramatic fireballs or green streaks. There will be more dramatic shows, but at the same time less talk of it in the media." ZetaTalk: Space Trash

Fish Kills

The release of methane trapped between shifting rock layers under lakes, rivers and coastal waterways has resulted in incalculable numbers of dead fish across the globe in recent years.  With fish mortalities now being measured by the ton on nearly every continent, such unprecedented carnage is nevertheless attributed to ordinary phenomena such as red tide and seasonal die-off, as well as overcrowding and unsuitable water temperatures.  While the cause of death in nearly all reports is hypoxia: lack of oxygen, the fact that methane will convert oxygen to carbon dioxide is never mentioned.

"Methane is known to cause bird dead, and as methane rises when released during Earth shifting, will float upward through the flocks of birds above. But can this be the cause of dead fish? If birds are more sensitive than humans to methane release, fish are likewise sensitive to changes in the water, as anyone with an aquarium will attest. Those schools of fish caught in rising methane bubbles during sifting of rock layers beneath them will inevitably be affected. Fish cannot, for instance, hold their breath until the emergency passes!" ZetaTalk: Dead Birds and Fish

The dramatic rise in earthquakes since 2003 is perhaps the most telling indication when Planet X arrived in the inner solar system, asserting its dominant magnetic influence upon the Earth.  The increase of devastating quakes and tsunamis in recent years has been self-evident, yet all official reporting agencies vigorously refute any such claim.  Under strict orders to conceal all evidence supporting the existence of Planet X, USGS has engaged in a campaign of lies and disinformation second only to NASA.  Not only has USGS manipulated quake data by consistently downgrading quake magnitudes and removing quakes from their database, significant quakes occurring in uninhabited regions frequently go unreported.  For years, live seismographs were continuously recalibrated to dampen sensitivity until finally all GSN and ANSS Backbone heliplots were rendered unavailable for 5 months between August 2013 and January 2014.  Lastly, by issuing the ludicrous claims that increased seismic activity is the result of fracking and global warming, the cover-up has indicted themselves before a global audience that will demand swift justice for being so egregiously misled.

"Greater than 90% of the earthquake activity is being altered by the USGS at present, which is under orders to prevent any clue being given to the public about the Earth changes caused by the presence of Planet X. Over a decade ago, the approach was to de-sensitize the live seismographs periodically, so the displays do not turn black worldwide. Then any quakes that could be dropped were dropped. This was obvious to some who were watching the database manipulation. Quakes in the list would suddenly disappear. This was particularly the case where a quake happened in a remote location, or out in the ocean. Dumbing down the magnitude quickly followed, but in order to ensure the public did not notice, the USGS took control of all websites reporting quake statistics. At times, this control breaks, and discrepancies are reported to the public." ZetaTalk: August 7, 2010

"Fracking has been a process used extensively for decades, since 1903 within the US alone. If fracking caused earthquakes, has this just been noticed? This is clearly an excuse for the increase in earthquakes, one of many the establishment will latch onto as earthquake frequency increases and earthquakes occur in unusual places. Earthquakes are caused by an adjustment in the entire rock strata, over a wide and deep area. The epicenter is merely the point where the adjustment, or movement, is greatest. The pressure that caused that adjustment spreads for hundreds of miles, in all directions. Fracking cannot accomplish this." ZetaTalk: December 17, 2011

Earth Weather

The meteorological impact on a planet whose axis of rotation is increasingly perturbed by the steady approach of a stronger magnetic presence has been comprehensively detailed by the Zetas.  Long before the current weather extremes manifested, the Zetas predicted the wobble’s effect on Earth’s weather: a steady increase in violent storms of historic magnitude; record-smashing temperature extremes of hot and cold; alternating cycles of drought and deluge, culminating with a blending of the seasons – all of which is now occurring with unmistakable fruition.  While those tasked with reporting the weather are coerced to provide false assurances that nothing is amiss, the untold millions whose lives have been upended by this global onslaught have proven otherwise.  Unable to produce a satisfactory explanation to account for the myriad of unprecedented weather anomalies, the cover-up cowers behind their exposed contrivance otherwise known as global warming.

"The media had been told for years that any discussion of a planet next to the Sun, in the inner solar system, was verboten, forbidden. Weatherman were told not to mention broken records continuously, although on occasion this would be allowed or the public would be suspicious. The Earth wobble was also strictly forbidden as a topic, despite the Sun and Moon being out of position regularly."

"Global Warming is forever enmeshed in scandal, where the UN and their scientists discarded data and cherry-picked only that which confirmed the theory. Global Warming was likewise proclaimed to be following computer models, which quickly became irrelevant as the melting ice and permafrost outran the models. None of these theories which supposedly “explain” the current weather address the Earth wobble, which is about to announce itself in undeniable terms to the public." ZetaTalk: May 5, 2012

Magnetosphere

How better to validate the approach of a rogue magnetic planet than observe its effect on Earth’s magnetosphere?  The NICT simulator provided real-time visualizations of Earth’s magnetosphere for nearly a decade until it was abruptly terminated in 2012.  Not a surprising move by the cover-up, given how vividly MagSim portrayed a progressive magnetic onslaught from Planet X that could not be blamed on the Sun.  While other sources of real-time data have confirmed the deformations of Earth’s magnetosphere is worsening, the availability of such data is becoming increasingly sporadic.  Relying upon thinly-veiled lies of omission, the cover-up continues to incriminate itself like a wanton criminal impervious to prosecution.

"Any plot of a magnetosphere will show output from the N Pole, regardless of what activity might be ongoing at the S Pole. Magnetons flow out from the N Pole, circle round, and return at the S Pole. What would cause the Earth’s magnetosphere to temporarily show only an outbound stream (blue lines), and this almost entirely turned quickly in space toward the direction of the Earth’s magnetic S Pole rather than arching out into space before returning, but then bypassing the Earth’s S Pole? It is as though the magnetons are diverted away from returning to the Earth’s S Pole, and this is what is occurring.

"We have stated that the N Pole of Planet X is increasingly pointing toward Earth, forcing the magnetic N Pole of Earth to push away during the daily Earth wobble that results. If this flow of magnetons from Planet X is strong enough, the magnetons flowing out the Earth’s N Pole cannot fight the push in order to return to the Earth’s S Pole. In this case, they join the larger field temporarily formed by Planet X and the Earth, which are attempting to form an end-to-end magnet at this point, and return through the S Pole of Planet X!

Shifting Earth

Another Zeta prediction that has inexorably seen fruition is the dramatic rise in incidents involving shifting Earth. From the sinking of plate borders to a global sinkhole pandemic; from massive landslides and gaping land cracks to the incessant collapse of infrastructure – gas lines, water mains, bridges, buildings, railways and roadways; an escalating trend of undeniable veracity has emerged.  Endlessly blaming the weather – an intentional misdiagnosis that asserts a symptom to be at cause, the cover-up has neglected to address the pathology of flash mob rage that will relentlessly be visited upon their enclaves.

"Confused investigators look for reasons for disasters that have their etiology in Earth quietly pulled apart, rock flakes pulled away, rather than pressed together, so that no quakes occur. The stretch zone is that sinking feeling, where support weakens, the ground sinks, and silently so. Thus gas and water mains explode, because the ground under them shifts, factories or refineries with gas line joints firmly sealed explode as these joints are pulled apart, and bridges fall as their mooring lose their firm footing."

SOHO / STEREO

Planet X and its entourage of Moon Swirls have extensively been recorded by the SOHO and STEREO observatories since Planet X arrived in the inner solar system in 2003.  Due to the ever-increasing appearance of these unexplained artifacts in LASCO and STEREO images, NASA resorted to prolonged service interruptions and even image editing, only to have such feeble manipulations exposed.  Overrun by a daily barrage of unwanted anomalies, it now appears only the most conspicuous portrayals of the Planet X complex are removed.

"We have addressed the pathetic editing by NASA when Planet X components show up on their SOHO or Stereo images, and the divided loyalties among those employed to fool the public. Deliberate attempts to insert the Planet X components on older images prior to 2003 also were obvious." ZetaTalk April 14, 2012

As the official admission that Planet X resides in the inner solar system approached in late June 2014, NASA announced that all instruments on both the Stereo Ahead and Behind spacecraft would soon be deactivated.  The Zetas explain why:

"The announcement about down time on the Stereo satellites is very revealing. As Nancy has pointed out, the Planet X complex has appeared, caught between the Ahead and Behind satellites, on more than one occasion.  As with the SOHO images, editing out any evidence of the Planet X complex occurs. But a public alerted to the presence of Planet X slightly retrograde to the Earth will attempt to use the Stereo images to confirm what they have been told. They will want to see for themselves, just how big, how bright, how close the complex is to the Earth. Certainly the Ahead satellite has a better view of this area, thus it is being closed down first.

"After the announcement, many in the public would rush to examine the Ahead images and find that the Planet X complex is simply not there. Of course, it has been brushed out of the released images for years. This practice would start to be questioned, with the public realizing that NASA was complying with Reagan’s National Security edict, but wanting the REAL images now. NASA does not intend to give the public real data, as suppressing panic is still part of the establishment’s agenda.  Is NASA saying the announcement, or portions of it, will not occur before July 6? They are saying that NASA’s portion of the announcement process would not occur before that date.  Once NASA has confessed, doctoring is supposed to STOP.

"A second concern is the halted Earth orbit. This fact is considered so radical that NASA and others have determined that admitting it would confuse the public, and make them think the whole announcement admitting the presence of Nibiru is a hoax, a game. Thus, beyond stating that the Earth’s orbit and rotation have “irregularities”, such as the Earth wobble, they will not admit a halted orbit. But Stereo cams that are supposed to be looking directly AT the Earth will soon show this to be the case. The Earth will be missing. To avoid closer scrutiny, expected to occur after the announcement, they are simply taking public access to Stereo images offline, and they will never come back on." ZetaTalk: July 5, 2014

Tsunami Buoys

DART tsunami buoys located along seismically active regions worldwide have indicated significant displacements of the ocean bottom near tectonic plate borders.  Equipped to record rapid changes in ocean depth, the DART system has portrayed dramatic plate undulations that have consistently aligned with the Zetas’ 7 of 10 predictions.  Pressed with escalating evidence confirming undersea plates are heaving in response to the approach of Planet X, the cover-up responded predictably with omissive tactics: an abrupt and enduring absence of undersea seismic event reporting; the steady deactivation of buoys with a history of recording the most frequent and demonstrable events; a prolific omission of data from the handful of buoys not permanently deactivated; and even the murder of a buoy technician intent on publicizing the truth.  In this, the cover-up has shamelessly confessed their utter disdain for the common man and indifference to the coming perils facing humanity.

"Buoys have proven to be an embarrassment, in that they show the ocean floor rising or falling, and in accordance with our predictions. The death of a Malay buoy maintenance man recently, to silence him, was considered a red flag, so buoys are not being taken out of service when they are flagging plate movement. Being taken out of service does not mean they are no longer operational, it simply means the public cannot be privy to the information. One can read past the outages to see where plate movement is occurring, thus. Just look for the newly deactivated buoys, and draw your own conclusions!" ZetaTalk: November 24, 2012

Volcanoes

The explosive rise in volcanic activity has been undeniable, with both active and long-dormant volcanoes  erupting in a global chorus of surging molten lava and skyward ash plumes.  Magma under increasing pressure from a roiling core and worsening wobble has announced the return of Planet X through a growing crescendo of bellowing volcanoes.  Yet another prophetic Zeta prediction that cannot be obscured from public view, only minimized in the media and blamed on global warming.

"There are many aspects of the slow magnetic dance between the Earth and Planet X since it arrived in the vicinity in 2003. One, mentioned early in the body of ZetaTalk, was the increased roiling of the core of the Earth, such that swirling magma heats up the crust of the Earth and presses into volcanic outlets. There are more active volcanoes now than in the memory of man." ZetaTalk: May 31, 2008

Inside the Ebola quarantine in Liberia

Monday, August 25, 2014

A man lies under a car after being put there in detention by the Liberian army on the second day of the government’s Ebola quarantine on their neighbourhood of West Point on August 21, 2014 in Monrovia, Liberia. An army officer said that he was showing symptoms of Ebola and was caught trying to escape from West Point. (John Moore/Getty Images)

Listen

The quarantine in the slum of West Point is driving street prices sky high, making an already bad situation worse. But the government says its necessary in its attempts to get ahead of the Ebola outbreak. Today we get an insiders look at West Point, and talk about the ethical implications of sealing 75,000 people in a cramped area that’s rife with the deadly Ebola virus.

"The government love their people and they want to see their people doing well and to stay healthy and to make sure that this disease is serious."

Meata Flowers, West Point Commissioner

Last week, Liberian authorities implemented a nation-wide curfew and put the entire West Point district under quarantine. That’s roughly 75,000 people, sealed into a densely-packed slum. No one gets in. No one gets out.

Ebola outbreak: Why Liberia’s quarantine in West Point slum will fail — CBC News

Since the outbreak was identified in March, Ebola has taken more than 1,400 lives in the West African countries of Nigeria, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia. But Liberia has been hardest hit, with at least 1,000 cases and 624 deaths recorded so far.

The few images that are emerging from quarantined West Point are especially harrowing. They show a frightened, confused population trapped with little access to food and water. This forced containment suggests that Liberia is becoming increasingly desperate in its effort to limit the spread of Ebola — a disease that, while difficult to get, is fatal up to ninety per cent of the time, according to the World Health Organization.

John Moore is a staff photographer with Getty Images who’s had rare access to the community of West Point since the quarantine has been put in effect. The pictures he’s taken there show the raw emotion of the situation. John Moore joined us earlier, on the line in Monrovia.

Putting entire neighborhoods under quarantine may seem like a drastic measure, but as the Ebola outbreak continues to devastate Liberia and the region, finding a solution to the spread is paramount. A key part of that solution is reaching out to those communities most affected, urban and rural.

Aphaluck Bhatiasevi is with the World Health Organization. She works with communities to determine the best way to fight against Ebola, and how people can best help each other with information and resources. We reached her in Montrovia, Liberia.

Health professionals around the world are watching the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, and how local authorities deal with it. Dr. Kamran Khan is a scientist and physician who specializes in infectious diseases. He has been a policy advisor for the Canadian government, the World Health Organization and the US Centres for Disease Control.

Ebola Outbreak: Why this time is different

Monday, August 18, 2014

Listen

Experts say the Ebola outbreak is potentially more dangerous then ever before because it’s in countries that have never seen this. Now the outbreak is seriously depleting health care resources. We’re heading to the front lines in Liberia today.

"The disease is not contained and it is out of control in West Africa. The international response to the disease has been a failure."

Ken Isaacs, the Vice President of the Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse testifying at a US congressional hearing earlier this month

    The much-dreaded and deadly Ebola virus is back with a vengeance. Over the weekend the World Health Organization reported over 150 new cases of the virus in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

    Here’s a little background about the health crisis threatening Africa today:

  • The Ebola virus first appeared in 1976 in simultaneous outbreaks — in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan.

  • It’s not known for certain but fruit bats are the most likely host of the virus.

  • Researchers believe that the first case of Ebola in the current outbreak was that of a 2-year-old boy in Guinea who died early last December.

  • Over the next few days his mother, sister and grandmother all died as well.

  • The infection was carried by two mourners at the grandmother’s funeral to another village, where a health worker picked it up.

  • People who come into close contact with a patient — like family, friends and health care workers are most likely to be infected.

  • Ebola is transmitted through direct contact of broken skin or mucus membranes with bodily fluids.

  • It takes Ebola between 2 and 21 days to develop.

  • Symptoms are typically a rapid onset of fever, intense weakness, muscle pain and sore throat.

  • It can progress to vomiting and diarrhea, organ failure and in some cases both internal and external bleeding.

  • Ebola is fatal in up to 90% of cases.

"It is like a war time. General fear. All over. And they need help. They need leadership, co-ordination … they will not be able to over come this by themselves."

Dr. Joanne Liu, head of Medicines Sans Frontier

    On Friday, Joanne Liu, the head of Medicines Sans Frontier said the key to bringing the outbreak under control is to limit and reduce its spread in Liberia. That country had its first outbreak of Ebola in April and in June it resurfaced. What little healthcare resources Liberia has are being seriously depleted fighting the outbreak.

    The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that this Ebola outbreak is on track to infect more people than every other Ebola outbreak combined. A grim forecast.

    To understand how and why this outbreak is different, we spoke to three people.

  • Tarnue Karbbar is program unit manager for Plan International in North and Western Liberia. He’s been working in Lofa in northern Liberia since January and now he’s helping co-ordinate the government and international response to the Ebola outbreak.

  • Nyka Alexander is the WHO’s Outbreak Coordination Center’s spokesperson. In July, the World Health Organization set up the Sub-regional Outbreak Coordination Centre in Conakry, Guinea. It functions as a hub for coordinating technical support and mobilizing resources needed by field staff in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.

  • Tara Smith is an Epidemiologist at Kent State University.

      Why is West Africa’s Ebola outbreak so hard to contain?

      Listen

      As the Ebola virus continues to spread, it’s becoming clear that a lack of knowledge about the disease and cultural factors are hindering treatment and containment.

      Tomorrow, the head of the WHO meets with leaders of several West African nations in Guinea to launch a $100-million campaign to help fight the Ebola outbreak. The WHO says that the scale of the outbreak and its continued growth make it necessary to take the fight to a new level.

      Dr. Kent Brantly was flown back to the U.S. for treatment after contracting the virus while helping patients in Liberia.

      If even the doctors who take elaborate precautions still manage to catch the lethal disease, it’s no wonder many Ebola patients and their families fear hospitals. Health workers say it’s often hard to convince patients infected with Ebola to seek treatment, and many are suspicious of health workers who show up during an outbreak.

      And the oubreak spreads across West Africa, many wonder if it can remain there. We asked Dr. Jay Keystone, a Senior Staff Physician at Toronto General Hospital’s Tropical Disease Unit, if Canadians should worry.

"Certainly if you look at the news media, and the pictures, I would be afraid, but my answer is no…in terms of spread to the community, and in Canada, it’s highly highly unlikely."

Dr. Jay Keystone

To find out more, we were joined by three guests:

– Jean-Pierre Taschereau is the Head Emergency Operations for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. He returns to West Africa next week.

– Reine Lebel is a psychologist who worked with Ebola patients and their families in Dikidou, Guinea.

Melissa Leach is Director of the Institute of Development Studies and the Leader of the Dynamic Drivers of Disease in Africa Consortium.

Are drugs the best way to curb the Ebola outbreak?

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

As health care officials remind us, there is no proven cure for Ebola. But the WHO has ruled that experimental treatments should be made available to those who are suffering.(Reuters/Thomas Peter)

Listen

The World Health Organization has ruled that experimental drugs should be made available to countries dealing with the outbreak. We look at the science and ethics of using an unproven Ebola treatment, and if focusing on drugs is the best way to curb the outbreak.

"Countries affected to date simply do not have the capacity to manage an outbreak of this size and complexity on their own. Our collective health security depends on support for containment operations in these countries.

Margaret Chan, Director General of the World Health Organization

More than 1000 people have now died during this outbreak, and that number is growing.

This morning, a Spanish priest with the Ebola virus has died. He had received an experimental drug called Zmapp — the same drug used to treat two American relief workers who contracted Ebola in recent days. They are now in the United States recovering.

As health care officials remind us, there is no proven cure for Ebola. But some say that if the West has therapies that might work, it should move to mass produce the experimental treatment and get it to those who are suffering. Others caution that rushing ahead with unproven treatments is a serious mistake.

To discuss the ethics and effectiveness of using drugs to curb the outbreak, we were joined by two guests:

Dr. Michael Osterholm is the Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy.

Ubaka Ogbogu is the Katz Research Fellow in Health Law at the University of Alberta.
