cant find any evidence that OP knew about chinese party members being charged with treason BEFORE msm. So its still a totally unsubstansiated thread. I was hopeing this might have been the nugget that shows OP had some inside line.
Oh well, maybe this is just a gamers code blog or a fun hoax thingy.
Ill get another Coopers and start lurking.

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
This message is reportedly being deleted by mods at the A*T*S forum.
Anybody know why or what this is ??


====Update from The Agency:

We've reviewed the progress of the dissemination of our message. We're not impressed with the way the information is being treated. Therefore, we're going to make a valuable (and painful) sacrifice and give you absolute proof that we are who we say we are.

By revealing more information, we're putting ourselves, and our centuries old program at risk. However, if those who receive this message continue treating it as a work of fiction, and as a joke, we fear that we will not be able to ensure the safety of unwillingly ignorant people while securing the portals. So, we've weighed up our options.

====Point Blank Forecast:

15th November, 2010 (give or take 24 hours), we will decloak one of our vehicles above Chicago, United States. The entire city will see us "very clearly". We will not decloak for long, because other agencies will most assuredly send an attack out (particularly because they now know that we're going to appear, due to THIS message). But you WILL see our vehicle. We've chosen Chicago because we are aware of some grave plans for that city. We wish to highlight that city and point the world to that city.

This is the best we can do in order to have you believe us. And quite frankly, if this message is treated as a joke after that date, you all deserve what's coming. There's a time to be skeptical and a time to listen and keep objections reserved. Now is a time to listen people. Listen! Listen carefully! That's all we're asking.

We've provided "two" tokens of evidence, that we're "in the know". We've provided an exact date for one of them and a window for the other. We've put ourselves in danger and made great sacrifices delivering this message, because the first message is NOT moving forward with nearly enough urgency. You have no idea how much we're going out on a limb for you, when we don't have to. We provided you with more than enough information in our first message. How is it that you don't understand?

It is you who allowed these agencies to grow and prosper in the first place with your comatose state. If that same comatose state causes you to dismiss this message (again), then more the fool you. We are severely dismayed (*understatement) by the lack of urgency people have with getting this message out. You should understand the message. It is not the first time it has been propagated!

We've been leaking related information for years. Has anyone listened? Is there anyone that understands? If you're not content with what we've been able to tell you (now), and if you do not find the information useful, then there's nothing more we can do. That's just going to have to be the way it is.

Research the contents of our messages. There's answers written everywhere, all over the Internet. If you look! We're not going to explain 150 years of development to people who won't research basic history. We don't have the time to give history lessons. Time is short! All we have time for is to provide "pertinent" information. What we've provided is the skin on the pudding; but you need to listen to it. We know where the portals are, but we can't tell you because the other agencies will find out! Please, stop being so stubborn.

We urge those who remain skeptical to refrain from attacking this message until the 15th of November. Attacking this message will significantly slow it down! Please, remain reserved. After the 15th of November, 2010, we expect every person who has knowledge of the original message to send it to everyone they know, so that the world can transition through to a better way of life. We can help you, but only if you snap out of your slumber and stop being so negative about everything. It's a grievance for us to have to deal with.

We understand that one of the first responses to this message will be something along the lines of: "They have a vehicle that can cloak itself but they can't get a message out to the Internet". On the surface, it is a valid objection, but please take into consideration that you do not know who we are or why we have trouble communicating on the Internet. Due to the nature of our message, we can't give you our card and invite you over for a coffee and donuts. It's not rocket science people! This message is too important to complain about what you "perceive" to be inconsistencies, while time ticks away. We have answers for you and will explain in full at a later date. For now, we're not asking much:

Just look up on the 15th (Chicago). Stay inside for three days after the meteor (we can't explain why, you wouldn't understand), and stay away from the portals. We're not asking you "to" do things, we're asking you to "refrain" from doing things (ie: from getting in the way!). We can't make it more plain than that. You WILL be hurt if you're outside during the 3 day period after the meteor. Just stay inside! Stay out of the sun, especially! There's no single reason why you need to stay inside. There are many, many reasons.

We've provided more than enough information in this update. 15th! Chicago! Watch the sky! Then, please, let people know that they must stay inside for three days after the meteor, and to stay away from the portals. We can't give you more information than that. We understand that some people will act like children if we don't, but we CANNOT provide more information than we have, period.

We're bending over backwards with this message, as it is. You wouldn't understand if we did tell you more. We're not being patronizing. You "would sincerely not understand". You would only become more confused and more skeptical, and our message would appear to me more far fetched; which will cause the dissemination of it to stall and become surrounded in negativity. That's how you are!

The words we will leave you with is: This message contains MORE than enough information, and will prove that we are who we say we are (people that "know"). We're tired of spoon feeding you. If you do not heed our warning, we cannot ensure your safety. It is not our responsibility to look after you. We've sent this message as a token of good will for the future, where, hopefully, you can be taught the truth.

We do care about you, but you need to care for yourselves. We're tired of your ignorance. We want to move forward. It is up to you if you want to move forward. We owe you nothing.

Freedom is a responsibility, not a gift.

It's time for you to grow up. You've had the time.

The Agency

Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie!!!!!!!!! Oi, Oi, Oi.

Any Sydney siders just see the f*CKing huge ufo as big, if not bigger than Venus.

White ball. No flashing lights. Smooth motion.

Actually passed by Venus, and had same intensity.

Very small fast chase plane about 20secs behind.

I'm so excited, having only ever seen one once before.

Had wife, son and daughter, plu neighbours having bbq next door all shouting and pointing.

Before you ask, no, no pics!!!!!

We are all so buzzed by this, Lads from next door are here already with beers in hand!!! Hahaha, this is awesome.

Keep you posted if it swings by again.

Oh, flew from Blue Mountains towards ocean. All in all about 30 seconds worth of viewing.

Any other Sydney siders see anything??

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
was strikes me as peculiar with the silver vein story is that i havent seen an adverse affect on the price of silver currently trading at historic highs $24.30

surely the down pressure of the markets due to an announcement of this magnitude should of been felt by now (markets portray today what is expected tomorrow)

it sounds (on an economic level) as if the chinese are trying to corner the market but no one is buying it

when there is not effect to a cause, the cause is most probably non existent

dont forget a license in china can be revoked at a drop of a hat

 Quoting: Mud



I'm a good day-and-a-half's drive north of Sydney - on the Sunshine Coast hinterland - and we got cold crispy clear skies, with zero light pollution.

FWIW - it is estimated that less than 1% of UFO sightings are reported to either ufo groups/hotlines or the media. I get quite a few phone calls from excited people who see strange things, but few want to either report it, or have a fuss made by going public. Such is the success of the 'giggle factor' used by news readers on the 6 o'clock news.

However, I have to say that there has been a noticeable increase in sightings around the world over the last few days. Maybe those various October 13 UFO predictions were onto something?

Something is up and I keep coming back to this thread looking for answers.

Why did the media/elite decide to make the public obsess over the miners? Some pretty weird shit going on there... and NASA is involved.

With the way things have been playing out the past few months it really does feel like something GIGANTIC has happened behind the scenes... and it really does seem like the Gulf must be involved because they have been lying out their asses since the day of the explosion.

i found this snippet relevant to out dilemmas here

"Dear Fellow Truthseekers,

One of the limitations of three-dimensional life is everyone views life and its events from different viewpoints, prospectives, and experiences. Each viewpoint is likely to be correct as far as it goes, but is limited and therefore could be called a relative truth.

After viewing an accident from three different street corners, each viewpoint will have a slightly different tale to tell, each tale being relatively true. Absolute truth would encompass all actual and potential viewpoints, past-present- and-future; something not possible, while in our three-dimensional world.

So, in our world there are arguments and upsets amongst good men, each telling the truth, as far as they know from their own limited viewpoint."

Welcome back OP.


dhlos, okay, I'm two-thirds completed with the entire sign @ 4 pages per area. (That's one with the grid, same without and a double zoom, then another double zoom.) Hopefully along with these highlights and extras I'm giving you because you have waited (Bless your heart) so patiently and I will have to sleep tonight and the entire constellation won't be finished until sometime tomorrow. So these are a mix, don't assume just because I only showed one of something that it is the only one, because some of them, there are bunches and bunches more. lol Also, I inverted the color because a couple were so very dark, I wanted to make sure there weren't dark planets among them, but the regular one is there too. So consider this an appetizer, lol enjoy. There are quite a few comets lined up headed our way, I didn't pin the all, but enough to get an idea.
Hope you find what your looking for.

Oh, don't know what happened to #15, have to check that out tomorrow. Very shortly the family will be picking me up for our eventing out. Take care everyone. Nighty night.

Trying to find if Uni or someone is shooting laser in to sky. Its not at the moon, and it hasnt moved.

I have pics now. Crap pics, and crap movies but I have them and will post them on photobucket.

I recall someone has a program to see if pics have been manipulated. I'm gonna put them up raw, without even a ring or arrow pointer and describe how far up ect the thing is.

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
OK laser explained....

Astronomy Open Nights are bi-yearly evenings held on Macquarie Campus: this one is in association with LaserFest Sydney, and will include a talk on how lasers are used in astronomy.

Join Macquarie astronomers to view the night sky through up to 30 telescopes operated by both Macquarie University astronomers and amateur astronomers. Several astronomical retail outlets also set up displays. Items of astronomical interest are available for sale at some of the displays. Activities for children of all ages will be staged (and prizes will be given out), and the planetarium will be presenting star shows.

A first for the event is a Laser Guide Star demonstration which will involve a 10W green laser, which is approximately 10,000 times more powerful than a laser pointer, being pointed vertically into the night sky. The demonstration will give observers the chance to see what a Laser Guide Star looks like and will be a spectacular display visible from several kilometres away.

Guide stars address one of the main challenges for astronomy: the fact that atmospheric turbulence prevents telescopes from achieving their maximum possible resolution. This turbulence effect is what makes stars twinkle. The purpose of shining a laser into the sky is to create a beacon which can act as reference for an adaptive optics system, which essentially “untwinkles” the stars and allows astronomers to achieve the sharpest possible images from ground based telescopes.


But not UFO..
