 Quoting: bob_909


Forget about the Solomon Sea, Woodlark, and Australian plate Solomon Islands subduction zone.

We have described the Earth wobble as a violent push away of the magnetic N Pole of Earth, on a daily basis, when it comes up over the horizon to face the Sun and the approaching Planet X. Where the globe as a whole moves at this time, the magma, being semi-liquid, can move independently to some degree. Of course the magma is magnetically sensitive! It is not just the core of the Earth, and the surface of hardened lava, that has magnetic characteristics. The magma likewise is attempting to escape the hose of magnetic particles coming from the tail of Planet X. Imagine what happens when the magma rushes under the plates and against the other plates . The plates bobble, of course you idiots, and this bobbling action loosens the rock fingers preventing the plates from moving against one another.Thus, the plate tongue,licking the rock fingers clean during the earths wobble bobble is this quakes cause.

Poleshit-Nancy declared today that the Superbowl Blackout was a sign of the "Council of the worlds". How funny.

Here in Europe nobody is really interested in the Superbowl. People are mostly interested in soccer. The Superbowl is a phenomenon in the USA.

So this was another big hit from the council of the worlds to shock us all. Nancy`s excuses get more and more confused. Failed predictions everywhere.

What will shock us next? Some rice in china?

Did anybody notice that Nancy`s Zetas think very American? What could be the reason for this? I know the reason because Nancy Hoaxer invented them to fool some poor innocent people.
She is abusing her cult victims like always.

And the poor Obama still always found no microphone to talk to the world and he apparently also missed the "Superbowl"? How sad. Once upon a time ...

So another Superhoax of Nancy Liar.

Here's my prediction - if it hits us, Nancy will claim it's a message/sign from the CoW (Council of Worlds). If it misses us, as scientists say it will, it's because the CoW protected us. Either way, she'll claim "Zetas" right again.

It seems as though he received the notice of a copyright violation report, he now edited the description of his video to mention that he didn't take the picture from the 21st, but he still does not credit me or give any link back to the original source. I will be looking for legal representation later this week to contact google so that I may send him a bill.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro

He's baaack... Today I received new messages from him claiming that all images used in his video were his, and that he has filed a counter-claim and will be taking me to court (lol). Well, that's interesting considering in his own video description he admitted that he didn't take the picture from the 21st. He's decided he's going to play internet tough guy about having his video taken down and lie instead, in direct contradiction to his own video description. Well filing a false counter-claim is illegal. I can't see this ending well for him, but it looks like I actually am going to have to find a lawyer. Anyone here do pro bono work?

1rof1

Eventually after lots of years of additional waiting even the last hardened followers will slowly realize what they were dealing with.
Or maybe they'll question it when there's nobody left who's really giving a fu about her anymore?

Her latest COW-BS has such an obvious pattern yet the believers keep buying it and don't realize that Nancy ONLY jumps on speculative news!
OF COURSE, because otherwise people could prove her BS for what it is...

Oh well..
And so they are destined to be spoon fed over and over again, right off Nancy's mouth... to be told what to believe - that ol' mashed crapola.

I suppose lots of years (of denying) will pass before they'll deal with the uncomfortable: Questioning themselves and eventually admitting that they've been HORRIBLY wrong about something - which is only good News for Nancy.

Will it blend though? Will Nancy really manage to get out of it without any consequences?

It is like CB said. Poleshit-Nancy will make another Council of Worlds hoax out of it. Nothing will happen as always but Nancy will tell her last tards some weird story. And they will believe it. Like always.

At least we know now that the Council of Worlds is full of football fans. Such guys shouldn`t try to save our world...rofl...spam

Obama seems to be no football fan and he has never heard of Poleshit-Nancy and her lost cult. The cult victims will eat everything what Nancy offers them. There are only the hardcore cult victims left. And they are so fucked up.

There are two worlds. The world we live in and the poleshit.ning.com. It is a second life for fantasy fans with some lunatic record. Whenever I read Nancytalk I just remember Heaven`s Gate. Two cults, nearly the same people and nearly the same amount of astronomic knowledge. So no knowledge at all.

This cult is fucking dangerous cause the bullies there are so fucked up. moshpitsharkrofl

And the full metal moron Flareberto is at it again. He is producing lenseflares and lenseflares with his old floppy-disks. He is both pathetic and completely bewildered. It is unbelievable that some people can think these are real objects, but the tards on the poleshift.ning.com sing hallelujah. If these objects were real all the orbits of the planets in our inner solar system would be destroyed and the sun would run amok.

It is sad that these people ignore every logical thinking and just follow the rules of their weird cult. If Alberto Cardin took a photo of some snow Nancy could probably claim that the snow is red now and that you can find a lot of Nibirus in it. The cult-tards would happily believe it. Then Nancy would tell them that this was a sign of the COW to break the big cover-up. The puppetmaster will soon announce it. And Nancy`s puppets would dance and praise the Lord. Being a cult victim is hard and ambivalent. You are not only a moron but also often close to complete dementia.

This is a very sad thing because it proves that even in the era of the internet some people are completely overextended with the modern media. And whenever crazy Nancy`s weird predictions fail (as always), she is telling her last followers a story about the COW. She is a real daughter of a bitch. This are the bad news, the good news are that only around 300 cult-victims are left on the poleshit.ning.com. The shitters really need some sitters.

And the COW is a running gag now. According to crazy Nancy this mighty aliens were sending humming jukeboxes to soften the 7/10. But they can`t stop us posting here? And now the COW has some football fetish and is attacking the “Superbowl”. Whenever Nancy`s predictions fail she is pulling out such a freaky excuse. How many times was Mrs. Lieder debunked and uncovered?

Everybody should know now that she is a pathetic liar. Mrs. Lieder knows that there is no Nibiru out there and we know that too. It is time to stop this farce. Or how long do the last 300 members want to wait? The waiting fun with Mrs. Lieder will be endless. But she was right in one point: 2012 was too far out (for her predictions) and she got lost in the cyberworld with her boring fairy tales.

Wake up, cult-people. No one wants to insult you, but you are insulting yourself by following that farce. Get real, get grown-up and get a life. And forget the freak show of Mrs. Lieder. It was not worth it. Lieder has eggs on her face now.

Nancy and this COW crap has become rather confusing of late.
When did the 7/10 become a punishment to man?
The Council of Worlds has lost patience. The deliberate blackout during the Super Bowl was just a gentle nudge. Punch 2 has been delayed because the Obama administration was dead serious about announcing the presence of Planet X, having NASA explain what they have withheld from the public, having NOAA and the USGS explain how the near presence of Planet X has affected the globe. It is time for the little guy, the common man, to have the same access to information that the elite enjoy. Rather than punish the common man by releasing the full force of the 7 of 10 plate movements, the Council will be punishing those involved in continuing the cover-up, whether friend or foe.

Re: Debunker Talk LIVE Chat 24/7 - A debunker's paradise!!
As nancy prepares the 3 ope questions asked a quick google tells me all is ok with the world
Dear Brothers,

I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonisations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.

I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognise my incapacity to adequately fulfil the ministry entrusted to me.

For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.

Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.

From the Vatican, 10 February 2013

BENEDICTUS PP XVI
