The New World Order Juggernaut

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A memeber of the Prison Planet forum pointed this out to me.

Spiderman #16, coverdate November 1991. Titled "Sabotage" part one.

On page one Spiderman is dodging flying debris from the WTC while swinging through the city. Off panel a battle is taking place between the super villian Black Tom and the superhero known as Cable atop the World Trade Center. A caption tells us Black Tom has just detonated a bomb, and the next couple of pages shows us the WTC with the top half blown off of one of the buildings.

At the base of the tower the superhero group X-Force is battling the supervillian Juggernaut, and not faring very well. Spiderman decides to join the fray. Meanwhile, Cable and a few other heroes are trapped in a darkened WTC surrounded by debris, looking for Black Tom.

Spiderman tells the other heroes Juggernaut cannot be stopped, only slowed down. He then hits him in the eyes with his webbing. Following his lead, another hero goes after Juggernaut's eyes with a sword, which really pisses him off. He then runs full force into the WTC, causing it to collapse.

The story ends with Spidey and X-force rising from the ruble vowing to bring the Juggernaut to justice.

While researching for this post, the first thing I found was information on an explosion on Black Tom Island. Black Tom Island is located right next to Liberty Island, where the Statue of Liberty stands. Black Tom Island was a major munitions depot before WWI.

Black Tom was a major munitions depot for materials manufactured in the northeast. Prior to a 1915 blockade of the Central Powers by the British Royal Navy, American industries were free to sell their materials to any buyer, but by this time the Allies were the only possible customers. It was reported that on the night of the attack, two million pounds of ammunition were being stored at the depot in freight cars, including one-hundred thousand pounds of TNT on the Johnson Barge No.17, all awaiting eventual shipment to Britain and France. It was obviously a tempting target. Future mayor Frank Hague, then commissioner of public safety, reported that he had been told that the barge had been "tied up at Black Tom to avoid a twenty-five dollar towing charge." *, which would have been around $470 today.

At 2:08 a.m.,(on july 30 1916) the first and biggest of the explosions took place. Shrapnel from the explosion travelled long distances, some lodging in the Statue of Liberty and some in the clocktower of the Jersey Journal building in Journal Square, over a mile away, stopping the clock at 2:12 a.m. The explosion was the equivalent of an earthquake measuring between 5.0 and 5.5 on the Richter Scale * and was felt as far away as Philadelphia. Windows broke as far as 25 miles (40 km) away, including thousands in lower Manhattan. Some window panes in Times Square were completely shattered. The outer wall of Jersey City's City Hall was cracked and the Brooklyn Bridge was shaken. People as far away as Maryland who were awakened by it thought it was an earthquake.

It is believed that German Sabatours caused the explosion, but to this date it is inconclusive.

So in the comic book, we have a supervillian named Black Tom Causing an explosion at the WTC, 75 years after the explosion at Black Tom's island and 10 years before 911.

Juggernaut's secret idenety is Cain Marko. Cain is a character from the bible, the first murderer who some believe still walks the Earth today, due to god's mark being upon him. Whosoever has the mark of god cannot be harmed. When you turn Cain Marko around you get Mark o Cain. Marvel Comic's official site has the New World Order listed in Juggernauts group affiliation.

Group Affiliation
Excalibur; formerly X-Men, former partner of Black Tom Cassidy, formerly Commission for Superhuman Activity, Exemplars, New World Order, eXiles, U.S. Army
So in the comic, we are shown blunt force coupled with explosions could bring down the WTC, 10 years before 911.

Best Uses of the Capitol Building in a Comic Book

Hey! I don't remember Nazis invading Washington D.C. during WWII.

Diana was able to stop the missile from hitting the Capitol building, but unfortunately she couldn't stop the one that hit the Pentagon.

There's those damn Nazis invading Washington again. Thank goodness for the Shield and the Liberty Scouts. I still don't remember this in the history books though.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Yes, there is definitely a menace in Washington alright.

Come on Captain Comet! You are a superhero! Don't let a bunch of blind aliens push you around! There's something about "seeing eye" humans that creeps me out. Anyway, Cap is able to defeat the aliens who are looking for their eyes. It turns out they were on the back of the dollar bill all along! That explains why they were in Washington looking for them!

Batman is the Descendant of Skull & Bones Founder

At 6:19 in this video, it is revealed Bruce Wayne's great grandfather is the founder of Skull & Bones.

I found this so interesting, I did some research on the fictional character Bruce Wayne's family tree. From what I remember, Bruce Wayne' parents were named Thomas and Martha Wayne. They first appeared in Detective comics #33, where they were murdered by a mugger named Joe Chill.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In this story, Batman's hometown is referred to as Manhattan, New York. Gotham City hasn't been invented yet.

It's very interesting that one of the tales in this issue is "the Northwoods Mystery" starring the character Speed Saunders. In the sixties "Operation Northwoods" was a plot to use false flag attacks in order to get the United states into a war with Cuba, and it was rejected by president Kennedy.

I wondered how a simple doctor could amass the fortune the Wayne's passed on to their son. Wikipedia explains it as such.

Thomas Wayne is a fictional character in the Batman series of comic books. Dr. Thomas Wayne was the father of Bruce Wayne, and husband of Martha Wayne, as well as a gifted surgeon and philanthropist. He was also the inheritor of the Wayne family fortune, which was built through industry and real estate by previous generations.

Born Martha Kane (a maiden name given in homage to Batman co-creator Bob Kane), Martha was the heir to the Kane Chemical fortune and a member of one of Gotham City's wealthiest families. It has not been revealed whether she has any connection to the other prominent Kanes of Gotham, Kathy (Batwoman) or Bette (Flamebird). In her youth, Martha had a reputation as a notorious party girl, socialite, and debutante, frequenting all the most prestigious country clubs, night clubs, and soirees. However, she also had a developed social conscience and often used her family's wealth and status to champion causes and charities.

So Bruce Wayne is the product of a union between a heir to a real estate mogul and a heiress to a chemical company fortune. They most certainly would have had ancestors who belonged to secret societies. Whether Bruce Wayne is a member of any of these, let's hope not, but according to some of the latest Dark Knight reviews I've seen, he is into rendition and warrant less wiretapping.

Global Warming Hysteria

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Due to recent realizations that some proponents of global warming lack a basic understanding of science, I feel the need to explain a few things first. In the beginnings of the Earth, there was no life. The Earth was a molten planet with toxic gasses swirling about. There was very little, if any oxygen.

The first atmospheric oxygen on Earth probably occurred as ultraviolet light broke apart H2O molecules. This would have resulted in a tiny bit of atmospheric oxygen, but it did result in some ozone. This helped form the beginning of the ozone layer.

Much more oxygen was produced through photosynthesis by cyanobacteria. However, millions and millions of years after the arrival of cyanobacteria there was still very little oxygen in the atmosphere.

The atmosphere of Earth was mostly nitrogen and carbon dioxide. The first complex plant life happened about 700 million years ago, and the first complex animal life 545 million years ago. The plants needed to convert the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to oxygen for the animals to survive. The animals in turn produced more carbon dioxide for the plants to convert. This is called a symbiotic relationship. Plants and animals need each other to survive.

Here is a pie chart of the current Earth gases.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Carbon Dioxide is at .037%. This is a 35% increase from 1832, which was before the industrial revolution.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Temperatures have gone down over the past 10 years, (01-08 are not on the chart), but the overall trend of the last 150 years has been upward. So the increased greenhouse gases are causing global warming, right? Not so fast kemosabi. One is not necessarily related to the other, violent crime goes up when ice cream sales go up, this is because both increase during the summer months. This is called a confounding variable The confounding variable here is solar activity.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You can clearly see in the chart temperature correlates with increased solar activity more so than increased carbon dioxide. It would also explain why Mars is heating up.

I could show a chart that positively correlates rising temperature with rising beer sales over the last 150 years. It doesn't mean one caused the other.

So why the hysteria over man made global warming? What is the goal of the global warming backers?

Throughout history, governments and other groups of individuals followed a plan for achieving it's goals by using what is now called the Hegelian Principle.

Step one: CREATE A "PROBLEM": Create it or take one that does exist and build it up out of all proportion to its real importance;

Step Two: PUBLICIZE THE "PROBLEM": Make sure a story about this problem appears in the news media each and every day, in newspapers, news magazines, radio, and television. Hit it again and again in a "steady drumbeat" that soon has people who don't pay real attention to politics (which is the majority of them) clamoring for a "solution" to the problem;

Step Three: OFFER A "SOLUTION": A solution that takes away one or more of our rights and further undermines the constitutional protections we all are supposed to enjoy. One that involves higher taxes (to pay for this "solution," of course), and one we would not have allowed them to do without this previous conditioning of the public.

You know the presented problem, which is global warming. A method they have used with the publicizing is to instill fear. Consider this video.

Or this film, where global warming causes an ice age overnight.

So what is the solution to global warming. It could be world government. In the book "the First Global Revolution", we have the following statement.

"In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.... All these dangers are caused by human intervention... The real enemy, then, is humanity itself."

Richard Haas, president of the Council on Foreign Relations writes..

Some governments are prepared to give up elements of sovereignty to address the threat of global climate change. Under one such arrangement, the Kyoto Protocol, which runs through 2012, signatories agree to cap specific emissions. What is needed now is a successor arrangement in which a larger number of governments, including the US, China, and India, accept emissions limits or adopt common standards because they recognize that they would be worse off if no country did.

Another "solution" is to increase taxes. If you follow the link you can see it is already in the works. I don't think it's going to get people to drive less, but is sure as heck will increase the amount of revenue for the federal government. Or so they think. It will actually cripple the economy. People will have to choose between gas to go to work or food.

The good news is that the Hegelian Principle might fail this time. A good many people have woken up to this scam, including over 17000 scientists who have signed a petition.

I think Steve Forbes sums it up best.

"There are no real facts to back it up. It's now become a religion instead of science and great fundraiser for extreme environmentalists. I don't think it's a hoax, just bogus science, like eugenics was decades ago. I got news for you ... the weather patterns change. A thousand years ago, Europe was warmer than it is today. Five hundred years ago we had a mini-ice age. Sixty years ago between 1940 and 1970, the weather got cooler. Now it gets a couple of degrees warmer and suddenly the world's comin' to an end. It's nonsense."

I disagree with Mr. Forbes about one thing, it is a hoax.

Best uses of a Djinn in a Comic Book

Futurama: the Beast With a Billion Backs Review- Warning- Spoilers.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The latest installment of the Futurama direct to DVD series picks up where the last one left off, with a rip in time and space caused by Bender's overuse of time traveling. While panicked at first, the people of the universe learn to live with the rip and go on with their lives. Amy and the amphibian Kif get married on Kif's home wold. Fry also finds love with a girl named Colleen, but is dismayed to find that she is living with 4 other men.
Feeling despondent, Fry flies into the Space time rip where he meets an intelligent orb named "Yivo" who has a single eye and multiple tentacles. Injecting a tentacle into Fry's cerebral cortex.
Meanwhile, the Professor and his rival Wernsworth try to protect the Earth by encasing it in hexagon shaped "Diamondonium" plates. The tentacles have no problem smashing the Diamondonium and proceed to enslave every living being in the universe except for the cyclops Leela. One eyed Leela is able to save humanity by breaking the hold of the monster but humanity decides to go back to the monster voluntarily.
Yivo takes all the beings of the universe to his own universe, which looks a lot like heaven. Meanwhile, Bender has joined a secret society called "the League of Robots." Bender makes a deal with the robot Devil and amasses an army of damned robots to take humanity back from Yivo.

I am not as well versed in synchromysticism as some others, but the symbolics in this dvd is strongly overt at times. There were few parts where I laughed out loud, and I found the overall them of the movie to be just plain weird. When Bender leads the secret society and the army of the damned against heaven, you find yourself rooting for the army of the damned without even realizing it. It's hard to tell who the good guys and the bad guys are. Yivo enslaves humanity, but then releases them so they can choose to be enslaved. The secret society act as humanity's savior when in truth they are the one doing the enslaving. I hope another synchromystic blogger does a review on this soon, my head hurts.

Edit: After thinking about it, I believe Yivo represents god, who turns out to be a one eyed monster with tentacles. The League of Robots could represent any number of secret societies, and one eyed Leela represents the NWO. Or something like that.

I Dream of Genies or Who Let the Dogs Out?

Yesterday I found an old book copyright 1949 called "You and Atomic Energy and its Wonderful Uses." I always got a kick out of seeing how atomic energy was portrayed in the 50's, so I picked it up. I was astounded to see a genie's lantern on the cover, considering my recent posts about Djinn here and here.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The insert shows a dog holding a lantern.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Why all the genie references in a book about atomic energy? From page one.

Centuries ago there was a story about a lamp that could do marvelous things. It was called "Aladdin's Lamp." This lamp never existed, but the story has lived because of the wonder of it.
This is the story of the atomic furnace-almost an Aladdin's lamp of a furnace- that can do marvelous things. This one is real.

The dog anamorphic is illustrated throughout the book.

In the first "I dream of Jeannie" episode an astronaut's capsule named Stardust One malfunctions and lands on a beach. The astronaut finds a genie in a bottle. Forty some years after the first Jeannie episode aired, NASA named a space probe Stardust. It's mission was to collect dust from the tail of a comet, in which it was successful.

The astronaut asks Jeannie to conjure up an airplane, and she conjures a falcon.

Jeannie is played by the actress Barbara Eden. "Ba" is the part of the ancient Egyptian soul that contains individual personality.

BaBa is a Sumerian god depicted with the head of a dog. Ra is the ancient Egyptian sun god, depicted with the head of a falcon.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So in that scene, we have the dog goddess resonator bringing forth the sun god.

Jeannie finally conjures a helicopter, so the astronaut can go home.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

So this is the second instance we have a "dog" controlling the power of the Djinn. The Djinn often appear as a black dog.

In the above video at 3:16 3:37 and 4:28, a subliminally placed spooky looking disembodied head appears.

I gotta roll, can't stand still,
Got a flamin' heart, can't get my fill,
Eyes that shine burning red,
Dreams of you all through my head.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah...

It would seem Robert Plant dreams of Genie as well.

I would not be able to complete this post without mentioning G'nort. Green Lantern was derived from Aladdin's Lamp, and G'nort is a Green Lantern in the form of a dog.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Now I just want to ask, Who let the Genie out of the bottle, or should I say "WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

Best Uses of the Statue of Liberty in a Comic Book

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

There is so much in this cover I don't know where to start. The Red Tornado is a robot who can make tornadoes, which puts to mind weather control. The Phantom Stranger is a mysterious mystic whose origin is unknown. In a tale by Alan Moore, he is given the possible origin of being an angel who sided with neither Lucifer or God and was banished to walk the Earth. In the crystal ball we see Wonder Woman/Diana getting smacked in the face with the torch of illumination by the Statue of liberty/Isis. Instead of looking injured, she is in a very sexual pose. This takes place inside a Wizards Glass, which indicates the future of the 1970's. Catfight of the goddesses.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What could be more romantic than kissing at the altar of an Isis illuminated by the setting sun? I guess you could throw in a dove flying in front of the statue.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You can't have a best of the Statue of Liberty without a doomsday scene. I wonder if it was global warming as the water suggests or nuclear war as the atom sign would suggest? And why do the astronaut's heat shield have a hexagon in the center of it?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I think I actually owned this one as a kid. Doctor Faustus was a knockoff of Sigmund Freud, only this Freud could kick some ass. I don't remember what the Hindenburg and the Statue of Liberty had to do with this one, but I'll bet 5 bucks the creator of "Doctor Faustus" was pissed off at or a little intimidated by his shrink.

I had no idea they had pirates in NYC in the 1950's! I guess Norton and Ralphie are going to have to send them to the moon! AS Isis looks on.
