Portuguese Regulator Bans Short-Selling After Banco Espirito Santo Unveils Massive $5 Billion Loss

Having waited until after the US equity markets closed, Portugal's troubledBanco Espirito Santo unveiled an enormous EUR 3.577 Billion loss - that is 15 times larger than the loss the bank suffered a year earlier. The data - to end-June, before the crisis really got going - already shows notable deposit flight, a 73.1% plunge in banking income, and a EUR 3 billion collapse in repoable assets (i.e. liquidity). On the heels of this Portugal's securities regulator has enforced a short-selling ban on BES... we suspect they would not have done that if all was systemically well in Portugal.

For some context on the loss... BES market cap at the close today was less than EUR 2 billion...

Highlights (or lowlights) of the data as of June 30th - before the crisis escalated

A collapse in banking income

Plunge in liquidity, collapse in Net Income, jump in operating costs, and tumble in total equity...

Muslims Create A Literal River Of Human Blood By Butchering

By Walid Shoebat and Theodore Shoebat
river of blood copy
ISIS just released a video showing what they claim are Iraq’s Army POWs captured by ISIS, driven away in truck loads and then shot them all dead. The video caption stated that there were 1,500 individuals. The video shows their end being shot at point blank in several horrific mass slaughters reminiscent to what we see during Nazi Germany. The young teens begged for their lives as they were made to curse Al-Maliki but to no avail while they were forced to chant “long live the Muslim nation”. Shoebat.com were the first to discover the video:
The voice speaks how they captured soldiers covering their uniforms with civilian cloths. Then they show soldiers pleading cursing Maliki while other chant “long live Islamic Nation”. The last man they slapped as they went down to the river had part of his back showing as his shirt was short and they blurred his skin lest it was sexually arousing. Then they are seen shooting the captives in the head and tossing them in the river under a pool of blood as the narrator from the ISIS stated victoriously:
We will revenge and will return measure with measures … soon the Muslim will walk everywhere dignified with his head high …
After the men were executed and tossed in the river the voice goes to say “Here was the spark ignited in Iraq. It will arise Allah willing until they burn the armies of the cross in Dabiq“.
According to Islam, Dabiq is a prophetic battle which speaks of the Last Hour (Day of Judgment) would not come until the Christian masses would land at Dabiq (in Syria) and they will be defeated and then the cross is finally destroyed and all Christian survivors that are left will convert to Islam.
The reason for throwing victims in the river stems from Khalid bin Walid. When the Christians and Persians from Ullays turned down a peace offer by Khalid bin Al-Walid, the most respected Muslim general in Muslim history.
The story goes that when Khalid made a vow to Allah during the battle that if he defeated these resistors, he would make the canal that surrounded their village literally run with their blood. When the outcome was in Khalid’s favor, it actually took a day and a half to behead all of the captives. The obstacle for Khalid was that the ravine of blood coagulated and Khalid’s troops were forced to eventually release water into the canal in order that it would run red with the blood of the slain lest Khalid’s vow be left unfulfilled.
Some of Khalid’s men wanted to meticulously fulfill his wishes:
Even if you were to kill all the population of the earth, their blood would still not run… Therefore send water over it, so that you may fulfill your oath.
Khalid had blocked the water from the canal. Now Khalid brought the water back, so that it flowed with spilled blood. Owing to this it has been called Blood Canal to this day. (1)
But this is not an ancient phenomenon. Today the world can watch it in the clip.

It  is now being reported that Patrick Sawyer, whose sister also died from Ebola, was allowed on two ASKY Airlines flights in Liberia while infected witht he deadly virus, Ebola, which painfully kills 90% of its victims.
Patient Zero, Patrick Sawyer, had a layover in Ghana then changed planes in Togo and flew to an international travel hub of Lagos, located in Nigeria. Nigeria is also the site of an Ebola outbreak.  “The dad-of-three died five days after arriving in the city”.  His sister, with whom Sawyer had contact, died of Ebola. He should never have been allowed to board any plane.
A desperate search is on to find the hundreds of passengers who flew on the same jets as Sawyer.  A total of 59 passengers and crew are estimated to have come into contact with Sawyer and effort is being made to track each individual down. There is an inherent problem with this “track down”. Presumably, some of the passengers connected to other flights, which known to be the case. Let’s just say for the sake of argument that only 20 people, a low estimate given the nature of the airports that Sawyer was traveling in, were connecting to other flights, the spread of the virus would quickly expand beyond any possibility of containment because in less than a half a day, nearly a half a million people would be potentially exposed. Within a matter of a couple of hours, Sawyer’s infected fellow travelers would each have made contact with 200 other passengers and crew. Hours later, these flights would land and these people would go home to the friends, families and coworkers across several continents.
The fact is that the window for tracking down Sawyers initial point of contact with the traveling public, has closed. Patient Zero has tipped the very first dominoes in what could prove to be the worst epidemic in human history.

Not to Worry Says the U.S. Government

United States health officials say they are not worried because Ebola is transmitted through exposure to bodily fluids.
“…Witnesses say Sawyer, a 40-year-old Liberian Finance Ministry employee en route to a conference in Nigeria, was vomiting and had diarrhea aboard at least one of his flights with some 50 other passengers aboard. Ebola can be contracted from traces of feces or vomit, experts say”.  I would submit that it is time to get worried. And given the fact that we now know that Ebola detection kits have been deployed in National Guard unit kits in all 50 states.
We are either looking at gross negligence or a well-planned conspiracy.

Iran's Khamenei calls for arming Gaza to fight Israel

Iran's supreme leader on Tuesday called on Muslims from around the world to help arm Gaza Palestinians in their fight against Israel.

The call by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was his latest such message during the ongoing war between Gaza's Hamas rulers and Israel. 

Khamenei claims that while Israel and America seek to disarm Hamas, Iran says "the opposite ... the Muslim World has a duty to arm the Palestinian nation by all means."

Iran, a staunch Hamas ally, does not recognize Israel and supports anti-Israeli groups such as Hamas and Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah group.

Iran does not recognize Israel and has considered the Jewish state its archenemy since the 1979 Islamic Revolution that toppled the Western-backed monarchy and brought clerics to power.

The US Dollar, Stocks and Bonds Will Collectively Implode

US loses Simulated Air War with China

The Rand Corporation, one of the Defense Department’s most trusted and longest running contractors, was hired by the Pentagon to carry out a computerized and simulated war between China and the US. The results were so horrifying, they were deemed classified, but were leaked to the press. What the computer models showed was that in the most likely scenario for a US-China war, the United States was soundly defeated by the Chinese military.
Most Americans will immediately and arrogantly close their ears to any suggestion that the US could lose a war to anyone. So, it’s a good thing that war correspondent David Axe and War Is Boring published the step-by-step actions each military takes to show readers exactly how and why America loses. The account, leaked to the media and published by Medium.com, shows how the blame lies squarely on one thing - the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter’s abysmal failure in combat.
F-35 Joint Strike Fighter
According to the Rand war scenario developed for the Pentagon, the most expensive military weapon in the history of mankind is a complete and utter failure. The futuristic warplane is supposed to replace all other jet fighters in the US arsenal at a cost of $1 trillion and climbing. As one critic published a few weeks ago, that’s enough money to buy a $100,000 home for every homeless family in America for the next six generations.
The F-35 didn’t fail because of its recurring engine fires or the problems it’s still having with vertical landings and take-offs. It failed because it was designed to do too many things. And sometimes, especially in war, quantity beats quality. We used to joke as teens that you could line up the Chinese and machinegun them down all day and night and they would still reproduce faster than we could eliminate them. Ironically enough, that’s basically the tactic that leads to America’s defeat to the Chinese military in Pentagon simulations.
Military Industrial Complex
The report from Medium.com quoted Chuck Spinney, who they describe as a retired Defense Department analyst and whistleblower who one US Senator called the “conscience of the Pentagon.” Spinney explained, “What you have to understand is that problems with the F-35 are the result of pathological decision-making patterns that go back at least to the 1960s.”
A dream contract for Lockheed Martin, the F-35 is supposed to replace roughly a dozen aging US fighters and fighter-bombers produced by a half dozen different defense contractors. They include tried and true planes like the F-16 and the A-10 Thunderbolt, affectionately nicknamed the ‘warthog’.
The authors conclude, ‘Engineering compromises forced on the F-35 by this unprecedented need for versatility have taken their toll on the new jet’s performance. Largely because of the wide vertical-takeoff fan the Marines demanded, the JSF is wide, heavy and has high drag, and is neither as quick as an F-16 nor as toughly constructed as an A-10. The jack-of-all-trades JSF has become the master of none.’
How tomorrows US-China War plays out
According to the Rand Corporation’s simulations for the US Pentagon, the most likely catalyst for a military confrontation between China and America would be hostilities between China and US-ally Taiwan. Taiwan is already called Chinese Taipei by most of the world because China’s conquest of the populous island is more than half complete. The only thing left to do is neutralize the Taiwanese military so the Chinese can physically occupy their neighbor instead of just exerting political control. And that’s how Rand and the Pentagon believe a US-China war would most likely start.
The first action, they say, would be a surprise attack by China on Taiwan’s Air Forces to establish immediate control of the air. That would force the US to respond by scrambling its fighter wings based in Japan and Guam to Taiwan to protect the island from a Chinese invasion or a massive bombing campaign on its citizens and ground forces. And that’s where the computer models show the US military completely falling apart, only moments after entering combat against a less-advanced but formidable foe.
‘In the scenario, 72 Chinese jets patrolled the Taiwan Strait,’ the report described, ‘Just 26 American warplanes - the survivors of a second missile barrage targeting their airfields - were able to intercept them, including 10 twin-engine F-22 stealth fighters that quickly fired off all their missiles. That left 16 of the smaller, single-engine F-35s to do battle with the Chinese. As they began exchanging fire with the enemy jets within the mathematical models of the mock conflict, the results were shocking.’
The lesson from the simulated encounter was that the newest and most expense American joint strike fighter - the F-35, ‘was no match for Chinese warplanes. Despite their vaunted ability to evade detection by radar, the JSFs were blown out of the sky.’ The authors reluctantly conceded, “The F-35 is double-inferior.”
“Can’t turn. Can’t climb. Can’t run.”
The Lockheed Martin fighter was sold to the American people with the promise that its weapons systems were so advanced, it could shoot enemy planes out of the sky long before enemy radar even picked up the F-35s. And that’s still true. But what happens after the initial few seconds as both air forces are charging directly at each other at the speed of sound? The results were that as soon as the range closed and the F-35s lost their advantage of extreme distance, they were all shot down by Chinese fighters.
The secret Rand report for the Pentagon wrote, “Inferior acceleration, inferior climb, inferior sustained turn capability. Also has lower top speed. Can’t turn, can’t climb, can’t run.” The military analysts explained that the F-35 would function better as a long-range, mobile missile platform rather than a fighter. The computer models showed that once the jets had lost their element of surprise and launched all their missiles, remaining enemy fighters had no problem clearing them from the sky. The result was the loss of the battle and China’s successful invasion of Taiwan.
Lockheed Martin fires back
Once the secret US-China war simulation was leaked to the public, Lockheed Martin immediately released a statement saying that the exercise was not about jet-to-jet analysis and that their F-35 was, “effectively meeting” the challenges put forth by potential enemy air forces. The two lead managers of the simulation for Rand are no longer with the company. One now works for Northrop Grumman and the other went to the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.
Sensing that their trillion-dollar defense contract might be in jeopardy again, Lockheed Martin fiercely responded to the leaked Pentagon report. “It was policy people who did that report with no airplane experience,” Lockheed Martin Vice President Steve O’Bryan defended the F-35. He literally described the fighter’s critics as, “self-proclaimed experts who live in their mom’s basement and wear slippers to work.”
The two analysts who produced the simulation showing America’s defeat shot back in their own defense. Both are experienced pilots, with one having fought in Iraq flying F-15s during the Gulf War and the other having flown RF-4 recon planes for the US military. “I don’t live in my mom’s basement,” the analyst replied.
They close by quoting one Australian military analyst who recently entered the field of politics after arguing against his country’s purchase of the F-35s. He warned fellow Australians that in combat, America’s new F-35s will get, “clubbed like baby seals.” American politicians and the US military take the opposing view. They’re in the process of making the F-35 the only fighter America has.

The U.S. Is Quietly Establishing Ebola Quarantine Centers

ebola burying dead bodiesMost border crossings in Liberia, located in West Africa, have been closed and communities hit by an Ebola outbreak face quarantine to try to halt the spread of the virus. The symptoms include high fever, bleeding and central nervous system damage. Fatality rates can reach 90% and the incubation period is two to 21 days. THERE IS NO VACCINE OR CURE(CDC).

 How It All Begins

United States aid worker, Nancy Writebol, a missionary sent by the Calvary Church in North Carolina, became the second American citizen to contract the Ebola.  Previously, Dr Kent Brantly, a doctor also working at an Ebola clinic in the capital of Liberia, Monrovia, had previously been infected with the deadly Ebola virus while treating victims of the disease at a hospital in West Africa. Ebola is transmitted through bodily fluids, stated Tarik Jasarevic, a spokesman for the WHO, said around 100 health workers had been infected by Ebola in three countries. The virus has now killed 660 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since the outbreak began nearly six months ago. Ebola has a mortality of approximately 90% and overwhelms the health care systems of the communities in which it appears.


The past week has seen Ebola infecting key medical staff in Sierra Leone, a deadly Middle East virus become airborne and a whole city in China put on lock-down for fear of bubonic plague. Lockdown? What exactly is lockdown? If a community is to stop Ebola, they must go into lockdown procedures. Lockdown procedures include the closing of the border to a present non-infected nation. The map, below, shows the impacted countries experiencing an Ebola outbreak.
Why are we admitting people to the U.S. who are coming from a region with a live Ebola outbreak. Presently, Ebola is not being tested for at the U.S. Border.
Why are we admitting people to the U.S. who are coming from a region with a live Ebola outbreak. Presently, Ebola is not being tested for at the U.S. Border.
Both Dr. Jane Orient, one of Arizona’s top physicians as well as other researchers, such as myself, have received information, from Border Patrol informants, that as many as 100,000 West Africans are being admitted to the United States under the same provisions that President Obama is presently admitting so-called “unaccompanied minors”. These people are from the same region of the world as the uncontained outbreak of Ebola. As Dr. Orient said in her interview on The Common Sense Show, on June 30, 2014, “It is not a matter of if Ebola comes into the United States, but when.”

The United States Containment Procedures

Fortunately, the United States has detailed procedures to deal with a pandemic outbreak and it carries the force of law. Under section 361 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S. Code § 264), the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services is authorized to take measures to prevent the entry and spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the United States and between states. The authority for carrying out these functions on a daily basis has been delegated to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC utilizes two basic strategies when trying to contain a public outbreak of something as deadly as Ebola and they are Isolation and Quarantine.
“Isolation is used to separate ill persons who have a communicable disease from those who are healthy. Isolation restricts the movement of ill persons to help stop the spread of certain diseases. For example, hospitals use isolation for patients with infectious tuberculosis. Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms. Quarantine can also help limit the spread of communicable disease” (CDC). Quarantining involves the creation of detainment facilities in which people, who are suspected, or are infected with a pathogen, are forcibly detained and not allowed to leave. This statute also applies, in the same manner, as people who “may be exposed”.

The United States Is Moving to Establish Quarantine Centers

Even if there was not a present immigration crisis at the border, there is a significant outbreak of Ebola in a seven country region of West Africa. With modern air travel, this government should be enacting protocols to limit the chances for Ebola from coming into the United States. Instead, President Obama is having ICE and DHS load up the basses and planes, at taxpayers expense ship them throughout the United States without going through a minimum of a three week health screening period (i.e. Ebola’s incubation period). This is highly irresponsible and could be considered to be an act of treason being committed against the people of the United States. Under federally mandated quarantine procedures, here is what the CDC and President Obama are mandated to do in the present crisis. Here is what is supposed to happen as described by the CDC:
The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services has statutory responsibility for preventing the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable diseases in the United States. Under its delegated authority, the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine works to fulfill this responsibility through a variety of activities, including
  • the operation of Quarantine Stations at ports of entry
  • establishment of standards for medical examination of persons destined for the United States, and
  • administration of interstate and foreign quarantine regulations, which govern the international and interstate movement of persons, animals, and cargo.
Instead, we are getting this type of Obama led method of pandemic protection, as described below.

Ebola Quarantine Centers

Yesterday, Paul Watson opened a lot of eyes with the following statement: ” The source, an office clerk within the LADHS, said that during a policy meeting on the morning of June 18th last month, his supervisor announced that the Los Angeles County Dept. of Health Services had struck a deal with the government to open up “low cost housing” facilities for homeless people, otherwise known as “FEMA camps.” The source said that his supervisor ordered staff not to use the term “FEMA camps.” One look at who is behind this program should raise the eyebrows of every person. as it is being administered by the Department of Health Services.
“In an effort to respond to the high need for recuperative care services, Housing for Health will open a 38 bed recuperative care site in South LA this summer. The goal of recuperative care is to provide short-term housing with health oversight to homeless DHS patients who are recovering from anacute illness or injury or have conditions that would be exacerbated by living on the street or in shelters. The site was renovated to serve patients with mobility impairments and provides wheelchair accessible community space indoors and in an open-air courtyard. The site will be operated by LAMP Community, a non-profit agency with over 25 years of experience providing services to homeless individuals”.


At a time when city, state and federal budgets are stretched to infinity, we are supposed to believe that out of the goodness of their hearts, LA County is going to provide these kinds of services at this kind of expense to previously ignored homeless people? Does any of this make any sense given the economic state of the country? Paul Watson is calling these facilities, FEMA camps. I agree with Paul and would also add that they are FEMA Quarantine Camps. This is the early preparation for what is coming. Cities across the country, from Tempe, AZ. to Charleston, SC., are outlawing homeless people as it gives the government to quarantine these people.  A clear pattern is emerging that we are soon going to see from California to South Carolina homeless people being quarantined, held against their will, for “health” reasons. The handling of the present and potential Ebola crisis speaks for itself. When there is trouble America, who are you going to call? Thirty years ago, we called the Ghostbusters (i.e. hit movie 1984), which is a whole lot better than what is available now.

PART 4 - Who Is The Phoenix?

The bright, four-winged cherub that filled the garden with its red, fiery light was an impressive sight while it rested in the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The image of the tree with the angel overwhelming its branches has a name: phoenix, a word related to the Greek phoinos (φοῖνιξ) orphonos, meaning “blood red or purple,” the color of royalty. “Phonos” also means “to murder” or “to strike.”[i]
The description of the phoenix as a legendary bird of fire fits the image of the cherub in the tree. Ovid describes the mythical bird in his Metamorphoses:
There is one, a bird, which renews itself, and reproduces from itself. The Assyrians call it the phoenix. It does not live on seeds and herbs, but on drops of incense, and the sap of the cardamom plant. When it has lived for five centuries, it then builds a nest for itself in the topmost branches of a swaying palm tree, using only its beak and talons. As soon as it has lined it with cassia bark, and smooth spikes of nard, cinnamon fragments and yellow myrrh, it settles on top, and ends its life among the perfumes.
They say that, from the father’s body, a young phoenix is reborn, destined to live the same number of years. When age has given it strength, and it can carry burdens, it lightens the branches of the tall palm of the heavy nest, and piously carries its own cradle, that was its father’s tomb, and, reaching the city of Hyperion, the sun-god, through the clear air, lays it down in front of the sacred doors of Hyperion’s temple.[iii]
Like the phoenix, the Nachash “dies” from the curse imposed on him by God:
And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou [art] cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life. (Genesis 3:14)
As we shall see, the Nachash plans to raise himself up from the ashes of his demise and throw off the image of the lowly snake, ultimately to rule the earth as the god of light. The Nachash caused paradise to become a desert and introduced death, which can be thought of as the first act of murder done to humanity. Indeed, in His response to the Pharisees who were questioning Him, Jesus referred to the cherub specifically as a murderer:
Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (John 8:44)
The palm tree is often seen in Masonic art. The pinnate or “feather-like” leaves of the palm mimic the appearance of the cherub in the tree. In a typical reversal to the true nature of the Nachash, a person wandering in a desert might find an oasis. In the place surrounded by the “death lands” of the desert, the water of the oasis and the life-giving fruit of the Phoenix dactylifera (date palm) would provide restoration.
Jesus not only points out the fact that Satan was the original murderer, but indicates that he imitates the truth by taking the symbol of the cherub of light in the tree symbolized by the phoenix:
Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. (John 8:42)
The Nachash has always tried to mimic Christ and replace Him as the “light” of the world. Just as Ovid describes the cycle of the phoenix, the Nachash comes from himself and for himself. Those who intentionally reject God to follow the cherub’s false light, the “way of desolation,” epitomize what it means to break the Second Commandment:
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Exodus 20:7)
The Hebrew word for “vain” is shav (שָׁוְא), meaning “emptiness,” “nothingness,” “falsehood,” or “desolation.”

The Arch-Archery

The arrow concept that mirrors the quality of the creature in the garden can be extended to the centaur, the mythological bowman whose skill makes the investigation of the etymology behind the word “archer” significant. In Greek, the archi or arch means “the chief or principal leader, the first in rank.” The Nachash was known as the most beautiful of the cherubim.[v] The Latin arche from the Greek “archi” also means “to begin, to lead, rule or govern.” In architecture, the structure known as the “arch” used extensively in stonemasonry actually comes from the Proto-Indo-European word for the bow and arrow. “Archery,” from the Latin arcus, is “the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow.” Anyone known in mythology as a skilled archer was also an effective hunter or warrior.
The Greek “arche” has the primary meaning of a beginning or an origin of first cause. The meaning of arche or archai during the eighth century BC always meant the beginning foundation of an idea or principle, or something with a solid foundation.
The Greek philosopher Anaximander (610–546 BC) was the first to use the term “arche,” later termed the“substratum” by Greek philosopher Aristotle (384–322 BC) to ascribe something as having divine attributes. The substratum is the divine, eternal substance that encompasses all things and gives them value.[vi]
Aristotle used “substratum” to define an element or principle not easily understood but described in such a way as to make its existence possible. To him, the arche was the element or first principle of all that exists. He considered it as a permanent substance in nature physis, and asserted that all things first come to be from it until they are resolved into a final state.[vii]
The “illuminated” stonemasons who utilize the structure of the arch symbolically honor and represent their god continually in the form and names of the structures they skillfully produce. The classical Greek philosopher Plato’s (428–347 BC) “unmoved mover,” or “demiurge,” as described later by the Neoplatonists, had three ordering principles:
1. Arche: “Beginning”—the source of all things
2. Logos: “Word”—the underlying order that is hidden beneath appearances
3. Harmonia: “Harmony”—numerical ratios in mathematics
The idea of the arche, logos, and importantly, special ratios, combine to make a distinctive building style known today as Palladian architecture, which has been used in all of the ancient temples. The Greek poet Hesiod (750—650 BC) wrote that the arche or origin of the world started with nothingness (chaos) and that the earth and heaven came forth out of chaos.


A wedge or obstruction was set in place at the time when the union of God and men, heaven and earth, was interrupted. An appropriate illustration of this new state would be the symbol of the pillars. The most rigid and graceful of architectural edifices were set in place after Eden and now symbolically separate heaven from earth. They were partly removed at the reconciliation between God and man that occurred through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Pillars that represent the physical separation of heaven and earth still exist. In later chapters, we will see how these will be “removed” in the future, first in a counterfeit fashion by the Nachash and then by God Himself.

The Story of Atlas

Mythology has been interpreted as allegory to explain or personify natural phenomena or approached as an ancient evolution of science. Usually, comparative mythology interprets the narratives as simply “stories,” fashioned perhaps to teach, entertain, or explain the origin of man. It is not common to look at the characters in myth and make associations with them to ones found in story of the Garden of Eden. However, by using and extending this unique approach, the characters that might not directly display any similarities to the characters in Eden can be understood to represent antitypes or ones gaining symbolic forms or attributes through the point of view of the Nachash.
The personification of the pillars in Greek myth is the Titan Atlas. In his Theogony, Greek for “origin of the gods,” Hesiod wrote that the first of all the gods was Chaos. He reigned as the “personification of nothingness.”
Magnum Chaos represented at the Basilica
di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome[viii]
The next primordial god from Chaos was the Earth (Greek: Gaia), who brought forth Heaven (Greek:Ouranos; Latin: Uranus). The firstborn of Earth and Heaven was Chronos (Time). He was the first of the Titans (“Strainers”), as Heaven called them. Time was said to have hated his father, Heaven:
But these sons whom be begot himself great Heaven used to call Titans (Strainers) in reproach, for he said that they strained and did presumptuously a fearful deed, and that vengeance for it would come afterwards.[ix]
Earth and Heaven made many children as well as terrible monsters. Some of these were the Cyclopes, Cottus, Briareos and the fifty-headed, one-hundred-armed Gyes. Heaven knew that he would eventually be dethroned by one of his children and decided to force all of his newly born back into Gaia to a place called Tartarus, the “horrid or terrible region”:
And he used to hide them all away in a secret place of Earth so soon as each was born, and would not suffer them to come up into the light: and Heaven rejoiced in his evil doing.[x]
Gaia and her son, Chronos, were so angered by Heaven’s actions that they made plans to punish him. Hesiod writes:
And Heaven came, bringing on night and longing for love, and he lay about Earth spreading himself full upon her.
Then the son from his ambush stretched forth his left hand and in his right took the great long sickle with jagged teeth, and swiftly lopped off his own father’s members and cast them away to fall behind him. And not vainly did they fall from his hand; for all the bloody drops that gushed forth Earth received, and as the seasons moved round she bare the strong Erinyes and the great Giants with gleaming armour, holding long spears in their hands and the Nymphs whom they call Meliae all over the boundless earth.[xi]
After Chronos took his father’s throne, he decided to reimprison his siblings, turning to the same unjust rule as his father. He began swallowing his own children from his sister-wife Rhea.

Rhea and the Goddess Cybele

Rhea is related to the important goddess Cybele (described in chapter 5) since she is identical in many ways. Both have been represented in ancient art as a woman seated on a throne flanked by lions.[xii]

Birth of Zeus

Rhea hid her youngest child, Zeus, from Chronos by substituting him with a stone wrapped in a blanket. She then brought Zeus to a cave, where he was raised by Amalthea or Adrasteia, meaning “the inescapable,” and the goat god, Pan. Amalthea has also been referred to as Ide or the Nymph of Mt. Ida, which is located in Anatolia (modern-day Turkey), and is said to be the origin of the Trojans and the mountain of the goddess Cybele. Adrasteia was also known as the remorseless Greek goddess of revenge, Nemesis.
In order to keep Cronus from hearing the infant, Amalthea had the dancing male youths known as the Kuretes or Korybantes yell and clash their spears against their shields to drown out his cries. This is an example of how the myth/garden comparative technique is applied. The stone substitute can be thought of as a trick that Satan orchestrated against the one God, the idea being that the will of God was subverted by the Nachash and that “God-Zeus” now needed to be nurtured by the actions of the Nachash and Eve. Using this unorthodox technique, the image of Zeus (God), Amalthea (Eve), and Pan (Nachash) together in the cave hiding away from Chronos is perversely similar to the situation in the Garden of Eden.

Earth and Chronos

The Nachash was present when God made the earth. The oldest book of the Old Testament, Job, mentions the establishment of the earth:
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (Job 38:4–7, emphasis added)
A passage earlier in the book of Job identifies Satan as having the moniker “son of God”:
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. (Job 1:6)
The account of how Earth and Heaven became separated in Ovid’s Theogony, the “castration of paradise” as mirrored in the garden story, was, according to the view of Satan, a twisted representation of the act he orchestrated against God—his Creator, the God of the Universe. It was the ultimate disrespectful and undignified “emasculation” of God Himself.
The “Zeus-God” helped by Rhea-Cybele and later Amalthea (Eve) in the Theogony can be viewed as another outrageous insult, as if the act of Satan in the garden was for God’s sake or that God didn’t realize the greatness of what Satan had done for Him. “God” was “nurtured,” allowed, to participate in this “plan of the subtle.”
Chronos takes on a new identity at this point in theTheogony and represents the “unjust” God. The act of bringing Eve to the knowledge of good and evil is symbolically reversed with Rhea protecting Zeus as a saving, helpful act to God Himself, who now is represented by Zeus.

The Titanomachy

Upon reaching adulthood, Zeus became the cupbearer of Cronus and tricked him into drinking a mixture of mustard and wine, causing him to vomit up his swallowed children. After freeing his siblings, Zeus led them in rebellion against the Titans, known as the “Titanomachy,” or “War of the Titans.”
Atlas entered the story along with his brother, Menoetius, as enemies of Zeus fighting on the side of the Titans. When they were eventually defeated, all of them except Atlas were confined to Tartarus. Zeus condemned Atlas to stand at the western edge of Gaia (Earth) to hold up Ouranos (Heaven) on his shoulders, and prevent the two from ever resuming their primordial embrace.
Hesiod writes about the birth of Atlas:
Now Iapetus took to wife the neat-ankled maid Clymene, daughter of Ocean, and went up with her into one bed. And she bare him a stout-hearted son, Atlas: also she bare very glorious Menoetius and clever Prometheus, full of various wiles, and scatter-brained Epimetheus.[xv]
The name “Atlas” comes from the Proto-Indo-European root tel, “to uphold or support.”[xvi] Two Atlases are mentioned in ancient myth. The Atlas involved in the Titanomachy was the son of the Titan Iapetus and the Oceanid Asia or Klyménē (Κλυμένη). The other is known as the son of Poseidon and Cleito, the daughter of Evenor, king of Atlantis.[xvii] The term “Atlantic Ocean” refers to the “sea of Atlas,” and “Atlantis” refers to the “island of Atlas.”

The Hidden Meaning of Myth

The ancients believed that the gods of myth had power over nature and the lives of men, and it is reasonable to start the exploration of the highest class of knowledge with their origin. The study of mythology in this regard would not seem to present such a difficult task. While some of the stories passed down over the centuries might have been lost, we can still gain a good understanding of the quality, personality, and power of each mythological deity. We still have the works of many ancient writers who describe them at great length. To understand who the myths actually represent and their importance to the goals of the living descendants of the gods (as they consider themselves) and their end-game, we consider that there is more to mythology than simply understanding the attributes and origins of the ancient gods. An underlying secret woven into the stories of myth can only be discerned by the wise. Approaching this learning from the point of reference of the Garden of Eden is an essential part of our unique path of exploration. Continuing in this fashion but stepping back for a moment to the study of a portion of the quadrivium (i.e., geometry) will add the wisdom necessary to continue.
The Greek philosopher Plato understood the importance of geometry, writing:
The knowledge at which geometry aims is knowledge of the eternal, and not of aught perishing and transient.… geometry will draw the soul towards truth, and create the spirit of philosophy, and raise up that which is now unhappily allowed to fall down.[xviii]

Bankrupt West Deploys New Measures To Start War With Russia

"Shocked" White House Slams "Fabrication" After Israel TV Leaks Damning Transcript Of Obama-Netanyahu Phone Call

While everyone's attention is glued on Russia and whether Obama can successfully launch World War III, things are going from bad to worse when it also comes to US relations with Israel. Recall that here things were already on the verge of disaster after for some reason, Kerry was unleashed to "arrange" a ceasefire with Israel, when in reality the SecState somehow managed to infuriate every single feuding faction (there are lot of them), Israel included, after Haaretz wrote that "Kerry ruined everything."
So what happened next? Something rather stunning according to the US State Department, and which according to BBC reporter Paul Danahar, constitutes "a severe violation of a private discussions" - Israel’s Channel 1 decided to publish a Hebrew transcript of a portion of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama’s telephone conversation which took place on Sunday, in which Obama was insistent that Israel unilaterally halt all military activities in the Gaza Strip. As is quite clear by now, Israel rejected, and the bloodshed continued.
The transcript, as shown by the Times of Israel was as follows:
The following is an English translation of the Hebrew account of the talk given in the report:
Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes.
Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire?
BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence will be met with silence.
BN: Hamas broke all five previous ceasefires. It’s a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.
BO: I repeat and expect Israel to stop all its military activities unilaterally. The pictures of destruction in Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.
BN: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas military and diplomatic advantages.
BO: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas based on the 2012 understandings, including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege and restrictions on Gaza.
BN: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It’s impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.
BO: I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators.
BN: I protest because Hamas can continue to launch rockets and use tunnels for terror attacks –
BO: (interrupting Netanyahu) The ball’s in Israel’s court, and it must end all its military activities.
One can quickly see why the US would quickly disavow any credibility of this report: after all it wouldn't look very good for the leader of the free world if the leader of another state, one which on top of it all is reliant on the former for continued military and economic support, flat out rejected what amounted to a demand from the US. As expected the denial was prompt with the US administration calling the quotations "fabrications", "shocking", and "disappointing"
It took mere minutes for the National Security Council to deny the transcript was even remotely accurate....
Sure enough, it wouldn't look good if only the US denied so Netanyahu had to step in, which he did:
The Prime Minister’s Office says in a statement that the Channel 1 report is false, using precisely the same words as the White House.

“We have seen these reports, and neither the reports nor the alleged transcript bear any resemblance to reality. It’s shocking and disappointing that someone would sink to misrepresenting a private conversation between the President and the Prime Minister in fabrications to the Israeli press,” the PMO says.
Despite the denials, Israel's Channel 1 refused to retract the leaked statement. Worse, it revealed the source of the leak as a "senior American official."
Despite rejections by American and Israeli officials, Channel 1?s Or Nahari insists that the transcript leaked to him by a “senior American official” is authentic, but acknowledges that the quotes he published were merely an excerpt from a long conversation.
All of which leads to three quite disturbing, for Obama, possibilities:
  1. With Russia clearly ignoring US "superpower" status and openly defying not only the US, but Europe, and hence NATO, Obama now has another foreign relations disaster on his hands, where a former close ally of the US is now openly refusing to bow down to US demands.
  2. There is a leak in the highest echelons of US power, one which appears focused on exposing the administration in a position of weakness
  3. The media tactics of fabrication and lies, so prevalent in the US vs Russia proxy war through the Ukraine, have now seeped over into US-Israel relations.
Whichever one of these is the truth, it simply means that the old Pax Americana world, in which the word of the US president was final, is no more, and first Russia (and thus the BRICs), and now such staunch allies as Israel, are clearly defying the former.  Or perhaps one should add former superpower?
As for John Kerry, just stick a fork in him already as per the following clip.
