  2. 1005. News proves my opinion is very correct (2/16/2018) On 1/27 in (1,002) about the (anti Trump) text of FBI agents Strzok and Page I wrote: I think that is done by the real "secret society" of the FBI. 1. Everybody has his own politic view. So do Strzok and Page. Must they have to support Donald Trump? Did they commit any crime in that Trump Russian gate investigation team? 2. It's more like a sting project as the FBI used to do. Strzok and Page could be false flag embedded in that team to sabotage "anti-Trump" plot. They were monitored. Their email were intercepted. As I know the culture of the FBI is anti-Clinton, and Trump is their representative. see #930. 3. The articles is to cut relationship between Trump and the FBI when Trump became notorious that he won the election by the help of Russians. 4. It's another style to apply pressure on the FBI to finish the Kat Sung's case.See #902. "Now they want Donald Trump to take care of the situation of economic collapse in coming years. The main job is to cover up the murder case - to kill Kat Sung, his relatives and people who know this story. That is the core interest of the Feds for which they have paid so much to China. see new secret deal at :"899. April plot (3/29/2016)"." Four days later, a news article proves my opinion is very correct.
  3. San Francisco Mayor's death

    999.Attempt to plant "illegal" money (1/8/2018) My sisters and my mother visited me a week ago (12/31/2017). We used to have close relationship - gathering together on each others' birthday and on holidays. Then I stopped to go San Francisco when I realized the Feds targeted my family meeting. See "993. Thanks Giving day plot". Still, my sisters and my mother came to San Jose to see me. About two years ago, they suddenly stopped visit without any reason, I think that was the result of the intimidation from the Feds. The sudden visit of last week must have been arranged by the Feds. Next day, (1/1/2018) another sister who lives in Oakland visited me too. I haven't seen her for years. She brought me a lot of food. She gave me several hundred dollars when she left. I used to refuse hundred dollar bill in case that was a planting. Due to her solicitude and we were missing each other so long time, I accepted her gift but immediately gave it to my wife. In two days, I met with three sisters. It's not a coincidence. I think the Feds arranged it. If I had kept that money with me, a murder case would have happened.Possibly on Friday. (see last message) Here is my article written ten years ago. 547. Plant "drug money" (5/17/08) In 2006, my wife filed tax return with obvious error and sent it without my consent. I thought it was another Feds' plot of searching house in the name of "IRS raid". To avoid it, I had to separated my tax report from my wife. Then my wife deliberately emptied our joint bank account. When my relatives knew it, they helped me financially. Family help is Chinese tradition. I met with my relatives this February. It was Chinese New Year. They gave me some cash. Mixed in small notes, there were some hundred dollars bill. I am sensitive at it. I have bitter experience with isotope money. I know it is used by Feds to track drug money. As a target, I also worry about to be planted with "drug money". I still remember a news I read more than ten years ago. DEA raided a house at night. The home owner, a millionaire, thought the intruder were robbers, met them with gun. He was shot dead. The agent of DEA told judge that the reason they raided the house was because that millionaire spent a hundred note that marked in drug trade. My doubt is if there was a drug trade, why not to arrest at the scene? That whole case could be a deliberate murder with a planting of "drug money". Several times I refused to accept hundred dollars bill. Once my mother came back from a Chinese tour, gave me three thousand dollars, said it was the gift money from my elder aunt in Shanghai. My elder aunt is a frugal woman. Three thousand US dollars was a lot of money for Chinese. It ran counter to her character and, they were all hundred dollars bill. Of course, I didn't accept it. I viewed it as attempt to plant. And this time, they mixed it with small bills. Was that a new attempt? In late March and April, I was blocked to access internet. In April, rice price jumped double within days. News said people bought rice with tens of bags. It seems Feds tried to push me to spend these hundred dollars bill. They were so sure that I would be terminated that the judge (or prosecutor attorney) even approved internet censorship? ......... 1,000. Impeaching Trump is an option of distraction (1/15/2018) From 12/28 to 1/1/2018, in five days, the Feds (FBI and DEA) arranged three unusual visits. 12/28/2017 My daughter came to my house to sleep over. See #998. 12/31/2017 My mother and my sisters visited me. 1/1/2018 Another sister visited me. See #999. I have not met most of them for more than two years. Their sudden visit must be arranged by the Feds. The purpose might be to plant something illegal so the Feds could make a raid to arrest. Next day on January 2nd, there was a news pointed to Trump.

  7. This one is supposedly for "straight" hook-ups, but truthfully it sounds just as gay as the other one: a bunch of men rubbing their "matchsticks" together. "Grindr," if you'd never heard of it before, would sound like a lezbo scene. Those sites pop up in the news quite a bit, but I would NEVER visit them directly, because I do not want those cookies or the malware, spyware, adware, worms, trojans, and viruses on my computer! I don't really want that crap in my Google search history, either. I hate hook-up culture. The men are always lusting to rape the women. The women are always lusting to give the men a haircut, gouge out their eyes, and lock them up in prison when they are done with them. None of those fornicators are as "gay" or as "queer" as they let on. The gay biz on those sites is mostly a show they put on just to generally sex up the scene in order to get the money-for-sex flowing.

  11. Scientists and .......!

    The Day and Night The Qur’anic description of the sequence of day and night would, in itself, be rather commonplace were it not for the fact that it is expressed in terms that are today highly appropriate. The Qur’an uses the verb kawwara in chapter az-Zumar to describe the way the night ‘winds’ or ‘coils’ itself around the day and the day around the night. “He coils the night upon the day and the day upon the night.” Qur’an, 39:5 The original meaning of the verb kis to coil a turban around the head. This is a totally valid comparison; yet at the time the Qur’an was revealed, the astronomical data necessary to make this comparison were unknown. It is not until man landed on the moon and observed the earth spinning on its axis, that the dark half of the globe appeared to wind itself around the light and the light half appeared to wind itself around the dark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFoGX49QzLg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_1TM-Y2lUA

  15. seeking information

    I posted this, this afternoon: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2018/04/friday_squid_bl_620.html#c6773813 (in relation to a lesbian domestic violence case that took some bizarre turns.) And then I found this: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/14/nyregion/david-buckel-dead-fire.html. Death reportedly occurred early this morning, middle of the night last night my time. Causation cannot travel backwards in time to cause a death, or induce suicide. I do not go for this self-immolation business. At the same time, this does not seem to be a coincidence. I had no knowledge whatsoever of the death when I posted, and I did not intend to offend. I was angry at the same way I had been treated as having reported a violent crime. This "gay" business and the "lgbt-hate" business is getting really, really creepy. We think there is some form of mind control going on. Does one person's brain waves communicate thoughts electromagnetically or somehow supernaturally to another person's brain? Or do we all have implants? MK-ULTRA? Some top-secret military mind-control weapon? You tell me.
  16. seeking information

    I am seeking information on any and all conspiracies and conspiracy theories. Is anyone willing to share?
  17. I suppose we must quote the official versions of the Bible, since there has not yet been a complete separation of church and state in Europe. https://www.die-bibel.de/bibeln/online-bibeln/lutherbibel-2017/bibeltext/bibel/text/lesen/?tx_bibelmodul_bibletext[scripture]=1.+Mose+1%2C27 Und Gott schuf den Menschen zu seinem Bilde, zum Bilde Gottes schuf er ihn; und schuf sie als Mann und Frau. https://www.bibeln.se/las/2k/1_mos#q=1+Mos+1%3A27 Gud skapade människan till sin avbild, till Guds avbild skapade han henne.

  18. Yes, we are having this general problem in U.S., Canada, and Europe. There is a lot of illegal immigration and human trafficking going on, and forced labor by immigrant slaves has displaced jobs formerly done by native workers at will for an equitable wage, where both employer and employee were satisfied with the deal and had no cause to engage in class warfare. Now the ultra-rich folks (including the Saudi princes with whom Trump is reported to be consorting) have taken away the guns of the poor, and fortified themselves in their mansions while they docked the wages of the poor, and in effect enslaved them. The Mafia has taken over all law schools, medical schools, and police academies, and as a result, legal services, medical care, and police protection have been reserved exclusively for those of extreme wealth. You cannot make it through law school or medical school or police academy in America or Europe without being inducted as a "made man" in the Mafia. Too much of that make-it-or-break-it bullshit is happening in the "Greek life" frat houses on college campuses. Remember how Adolf Hitler said Mein Kampf, that is, My Struggle? He was fighting much the same problems we are today, but he took a little too much upon himself as My Problem, and he put forth an Übermensch, that is, an overman or overhuman to rule over other races or those from shithole countries, as Trump would say. Of course Übermensch is masculine in German, and that masculinity is very much of the essence of the whole concept, but in Swedish and Norwegian, the gender of the term is feminine or neuter, respectively. To refer to övermänniskan in correct Swedish, one must use the feminine pronouns hon, henne, hennes, etc., i.e., "she, her, hers" in English. Yes, "she" threatens to breed even the Swedes into her submission. Imagine that! Whereas in proper book Norwegian, one must refer to overmennesket with the neuter pronoun det or "it" in English. Literally "it" is an "over-human-being" in Norwegian. Of course this is absolutely humiliating to the German Nazis who cannot translate their superior masculinity, or masculine superiority, as the case may be, into Swedish or Norwegian, even though they are attempting to rule over the Italians, the Greeks, the Jews, the Arabs, the Russians and so on and so forth, on behalf of the entire white race. The German Nazis reap all the benefits of their pan-European white supremacy to themselves while they treat other white people no better than those of other races from "shithole" countries while they are hard at work fast and furious turning all of our countries into white trash shitholes while the trains always come on time in Berlin. There are certain philosphies to the Swedish and Norwegian attitudes of gender for the word "human." The Swedes believe that a human is capable of reproduction, and in a certain sense this rules out the use of the neuter gender for a generic human being. Furthermore, the Swedish language tends not to refer to a group of people in the masculine unless the group is exclusively male. This rules out the use of the male pronoun for an archetypal "human." The Norwegians, on the other hand, are referring to a "human" with a certain impersonal particularity which deliberately does not elevate man above beast.
  19. I see we just gave the little parasitic darlings from Puerto Rico another 18.5 billion for their tiny 35x100 mile island. Perhaps trying to lure them back home by retiring them all to never have to work again. This is after OUR labor force restored most of their power and infrastructure. Now we are rebuilding their homes. Florida has an affordable housing crisis now and we have tons of our own people unable to repair their homes and have no affordable place to rent and FEMA no longer helps them. Meanwhile Puerto Ricans are vacationing here in FEMA provided dwellings and we just extended their FEMA assistance a few more months. And although citizens they pay no Federal Income Tax. Uncle Sam needs a Teflon rectal insert and an attitude adjustment. Feeling sorry for Donald Trump trying to secure our borders and limit the influx of unsavory interlopers (annual migration of thousands flooding in from Central and South America through Mexico) Mexico is encouraging, aiding and abetting them because they hate our guts. The drums of war are growing louder all over the Middle East, Russia and Asia that Trump and his Cabinet needs to focus on, not the bullshit endless witch hunts perpetrated by ignorant multitudes who all have nasty skeletons in their own closet. Of course a global mover and shaker like Trump has opportunity and resources to do as he will throughout his career and has international tentacles everywhere including Russia. His personal escapades (probably mild relative to peers in his power strata) has little to do with his current position as Commander an Chief. People seem willing to destroy America to satisfy their lust for blood.

  22. San Francisco Mayor's death

    997. plant to create a "drug producing" case (12/25/2017) Several months ago, my wife brought home three cases of cooking material. Asking her why bought so many, she said some were for my sisters. The label on bottle said "Marinated cooking wine with salt". It was a rare used cooking material. I then recalled the "vinegar" event. 15 years ago, she bought a lot of white vinegar which rarely used in cooking. Then I learned vinegar was also a material used to produce drug. I thought it was a trick to frame me in a "drug producing" case and wrote #112. How they plant." Now when the Feds(FBI and DEA) are eager to finish the case, they try all kinds of their tricks to frame a case, include that "drug production" method. I think that alcohol may be a material for "drug producing". My wife put the case at the passage of the kitchen. Probably with purpose that I move the box frequently so they can use it as evidence. Not a coincidence that she also put a big bottle (gallon size) of vinegar at the side of box. See the picture. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-cQSZ-woHVgM/WchNbo0lsMI/AAAAAAAAAZI/h4zJgPN7CXUCxYb4PNjjgdXnmlEONIVlwCEwYBhgL/w140-h105-p/009.JPG 112. How they plant (2) (2003) About that time in 2001, a lady suddenly called my wife to shopping in super market. Among the "harvest", I found my wife bought 8 bottles of vinegar. Vinegar is a popular sauce for cooking. But what she bought was a western style we rarecaly used. We used to use vinegar made in China. My wife argued that because it was on sale, "buy one get one free" and because the other lady bought a lot too. So she followed her. She forgot the lesson how she was guided to cash the check. Now the same act played again. I was sensitive because I felt the pressure then they were framing case against me. I knew from paper that vinegar is a material to produce drug. And that lady had ever shopping with my wife. That was the only one as I know. Now after one year most of these vinegar are still there unused. 998. Killing tactic and murder attempt on my daughter (1/1/2018) My daughter has a house in San Jose.(now she rents off to friends) She rents a living residence in San Francisco where she works. She rarely comes to my house since. Recently, she came back frequently. Last Thursday night(12/28) she came to sleep over. Next day when I read the news, a picture bigger than other news caught my eye(. Are we really to believe that the lunatic ravings from another forum, most likely posted by the same lunatic that linked to it in the first place really has any trace of evidence of such things. http://www.forumgarden.com/forums/current-events/63453-alps-plane-crash-case-suicide-co-pilot-7.html
  23. Poison gas attack in US

    311. A large scale poison project (5/17/05) In last message #310, I referred cover up articles from Mercury News. They followed tightly to the poison plan of Feds. In message #167, 168 (posted on 9/26/03, 10/6/03) I talked about poisoned vegetable. Then on 10/21, there was a news said vegetables were contaminated by pesticides. Next year, Feds expanded their poison plan into supermarkets. The article "COMMON GROCERIES HAVE TOXIC TRACES"(9/2/04). was an announcement that food was poisoned in large scale: fish; meat, egg, dairy product......almost everything to make sure what I bought were toxic food. A lot of people would be suffered. To control the situation, a hospital was closed. In same month on 9/26/04, Mercury News reported that San Jose Medical Center would close on 12/9. "Can we live with only two?" the article asked the question with one of Santa Clara County's three trauma centers set to close. I think the purpose was to concentrate the sick people to the remain hospital so Feds could effectively collect the data of their victims to control the development of their poison project. The close of hospital had attracted other investors but no one succeeded to take over. "Possible hospital investor drops out". News said. (11/11/04. S.J.M.N.) Since the close of hospital was part of Feds poison project, no one could disturb it even there was a demand. I was aware of this big poison project when I wrote the poison message #309. I arranged the news collection about toxic food and found one toxic news in 2003, one in 2004, there were three in February 2005. (see #310) Obviously four months after they announced large scale toxic food, many victims fell sick in early 2005 .That is why there were three articles about toxic food in one month. Published with unusual frequency to justify the recent outbreak of cancer patients. Started from February this year, more food was contaminated by isotope. It's a tactic to continue the poison plan when toxic caused doctors' attention. Then we saw the "whooping cough" article in April. This country is controlled by an evil group. They don't care the lives of its citizens. For a target they worried very much they could sacrifice the lives of many other people. They even designed a big project to study how to control majority population by toxic food. It's their tradition. We saw it from "Northwood" plan. I also allege they are the one behind "Oklahoma bombing" and "911 attack". For their interest they'll do anything.
  24. Strange Message

    We have never been able to solve the organized crime problem by holding our peace, remaining silent, and going into WitSec or, in other words, sweeping those moose turds under the rug and pretending they don't stink. In fact that strategy, even before the age of computers and data-sharing made its practical impossibility obvious to the general public, only served to play hand-in-hand with the Mafia's Code of Omertà; what passed as "hiding" from the Mob was ever only in reality a limited tolerance* by the Mob for the witnesses as long as they remained silent with their accusations for fear of their lives. This might be for the first time in 100 years or more, or ever in the history of the U.S., but we really do need to draw these things out to the bitter end. Witnesses do not "hide" in fear of their lives in a free country. The very thought is absurd and ridiculous. "VetSec," (the humorously militarized version of the G-man as-seen-on-TV term "WitSec,") is an agency for bouncers in Las Vegas. Nahhh, they got your number if you ever so much as bought a tank of gas in Las Vegas and made it out of Nevada without having your car break down on the side of the road. No use pretending they don't: the "thought" expressed in the U.S. Code is just a futile but ultimately empty gesture of thanks.000000d1.mimetmp Capital One's CEO has a God delusion http://fortune.com/2018/01/05/capital-one-ceo-richard-fairbank-billionaire/ This guy is all of a sudden capo di tutti capi**, and he thinks you need a haircut -- you have to read the whole chapter https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+11 to understand the context of that phrase in Italian.

Alcohol <-> 21, 22, male-male oral sex Tobacco <-> 11, 65, 66, male-male anal (or other) sex Firearms <-> 14, 69, 78, "straight" sex Explosives <-> 44, 55, 88, female-female oral (or other) sex These numeric codes tend to be varied a lot, for obvious reasons, and probably depending on which cartel or gang the officials belong to, but there is a general tendency and desire to "regulate" or "control" these items as "vice," and to read way too much into the word "vice" in the wrong way as an association with some "deviant" sex. Some of these liberal government gangs or cartels are "anti-Semitic" and use numeric codes to "one-up" the 12 tribes of Israel or some rival gang MS-13 == 12 tribes + 1 (Mexican criminal cartel, anti-Semitism going back to the Zimmermann telegram...) 1488 == MS-13 + 1 (White supremacist gang, better than the Jews and Spics put together...)
  26. Scientists and .......!

    Allah sent the prophets as a mercy to the slaves and supported them with miracles to indicate the truthfulness of their message. Of all the prophets, our Prophet, Muhammad, was blessed with the most miracles. Al-Isra 'and al-Mi ^ raj are among the many miracles of Prophet Muhammad. The miracle of al-Isra 'is confirmed in the Qur'an. In Surat al-Isra ', Ayah 1, Allah said: which means: [Praise be to Allah Who enabled His slave, Muhammad, to make the journey at night from Masjid al-Haram in Makkah to Masjid al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, which is surrounded a blessed land.] This journey is also confirmed in the sahih hadith. As such, there is scholarly consensus (ijma ^) Prophet Muhammad journeyed in body and soul the night of al-Isra 'from Masjid al-Haram in Makkah to Masjid al-Aqsain Jerusalem. Moreover, these scholars indicated the person who denies al-Isra 'is a blasphemer for belying the explicit text of the Qur'an. Al-isra And Al-miraj ....... )scenes From Paradise And Fire 1- On Prophet Muhammad's journey from Masjid al-Haram to Masjid al-Aqsa, Allah enabled him to see some of His wondrous creations. Allah enabled the Prophet to see the world (dunya) like an old woman. However, this old woman was wearing a great deal of jewelry, and in this there is an indication signifying the reality of the world. 2- Allah enabled the Prophet to see Iblis. The Prophet saw something on the side of the road which did not dare to stand in his way or speak to him. What the Prophet saw was Iblis. Originally, Iblis was a believer and lived with the angels in Paradise. When Allah ordered the angels to prostrate (sujud) to Prophet Adam, Iblis was ordered to prostrate to him as well. The angels prostrated to Adam in obedience to Allah, because angels do not disobey Allah. However, Iblis did not obey, and he objected to the order of Allah. He said, "You created me out of fire, and You created him out of clay. How do You order me to prostrate to him?" So this objection by Iblis to the order of Allah was the first blasphemy he committed. 3- On his journey, the Prophet smelled a very nice odor. He asked Jibril about this pleasant scent and Jibril informed him this good smell was coming from the grave of the woman whose duty used to be to comb Pharaoh's daughter's hair. This woman was a good, pious believer. One day, as she was combing Pharaoh's daughter's hair, the comb fell from her hand. At this she said, ""Bismillah. "Pharaoh's daughter asked her, "Do you have a god other than my father?" The woman said, "Yes. My Lord and the Lord of your father is Allah." Pharaoh's daughter told her father what had happened. Pharaoh demanded this woman blaspheme and leave Islam, but she refused. At that, Pharaoh threatened to kill her children. He brought a great pot of water and built a great fire under it. When the water boiled, Pharaoh brought her children and started to drop them into that pot one after the other. Throughout all this, the woman remained steadfast to Islam, even when Pharaoh reached her youngest child--a little boy still bosom feeding--but she felt pity for him. At that, Allah enabled this child to speak. He said to his mother, "O Mother, be patient. The torture of the Hereafter is far more severe than the torture of this life, and do not be reluctant, because you are right." At this the woman requested Pharaoh collect her bones and the bones of her children and bury them in the same grave. Pharaoh promised her that--then dropped her into that boiling water. She died as a martyr. The good odor the Prophet smelled coming from her grave is an indication of her high status. 4- During his trip, the Prophet saw people who were planting and reaping in two days. Jibril told the Prophet, "These were the people who fight for the sake of Allah (mujahidun). "wink." 5- The Prophet also saw people whose lips and tongues were clipped with scissors made of fire. Jibril told the Prophet, "These are the speakers of sedition (fitna) who call people to misguidance." 6- He also saw a bull which exited a very small outlet, then was trying in vain to return through that small outlet. Jibril told the Prophet, "This is the example of the bad word--once spoken, it cannot be returned." 7- The Prophet saw people grazing like animals, with very little clothing on their private parts. Jibril told the Prophet, "These are the ones who refused to pay zakat. "." 8- The Prophet saw angels smashing some people's heads with rocks. These heads would return to the shape they had been, and then the angels would smash their heads again--and so on. Jibril told the Prophet, "These are the ones whose heads felt too heavy to perform prayer--the ones who used to sleep without praying." 9- On his journey the Prophet saw people who were competing to eat some rotten meat--ignoring meat that was sliced and unspoiled. Jibril told the Prophet, "These are people from your nation who leave out that which is permissible (halal), and consume that which is forbidden ((haram). "This reference was to the fornicators, that is, the ones who left out the permissible (marriage) and committed sins (fornication). 10- Also, the Prophet saw people who were drinking from the fluid coming from the bodies of the fornicators, (water mixed with blood). Jibril indicated to the Prophet these were the ones who were drinking the alcohol which is prohibited in this world. 11- The Prophet saw people scratching their faces and chests with brass finger nails. Jibril said, "These are the examples of those who commit gossip ((ghibah). " http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p97c4D2fTqw ISRA MI'RAJ

  29. Do you remember the LIBOR scandal? The London Inter-Bank Offered Rate? https://www.cfr.org/backgrounder/understanding-libor-scandal https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/jan/18/libor-scandal-the-bankers-who-fixed-the-worlds-most-important-number https://www.investopedia.com/terms/l/libor-scandal.asp http://www.bbc.com/news/business-19199683 The reason LIBOR is so important is that it is used as a "base rate" for a lot of unrelated loans and other monetary contracts. Base rate + 10 or 15% = your credit card or car loan rate, that sort of thing. Okay, not so okay, because the biggest banks in Europe get together and "fix" the interest rate at which they "offer" to lend money to other banks, which I assume are understood to be more or less middle-tier banks. A bald-faced lie, except they are not even claiming that they were taken up on the "offer." The middle-tier banks are not stupid borrowers. They will either negotiate down the "offered" rate or take out a loan at better rates and conditions elsewhere. The LIBOR is a "little people's" borrowing rate. An "offer" to lend money at a rate which was left outstanding at the end of the day and published in the newspaper because no other bank took them up on it. The whole thing was and still is a fraud, long before and after 2008 when it broke the news. And to make matters worse, after London "fixes" the inter-bank interest rates and prices per troy ounce for gold and silver, then about five hours later, (because of the time zone difference,) there is nice comfortable fireside discussion in the U.S., where the Fed Funds rate is similarly "fixed." And the fix cannot be going just one way across the Atlantic, either. The Fed and the big banks in the U.S. have got to be paying London for "the fix" somehow. We need to find out how they are paying, and where the money is going.
