Illuminati and New World Order fake or real?

This_Is_Not_A_Conspiracy_Theory-03-758x398

I came across a  video today talking about the Illuminati. I’ve heard of Free Masons  but never heard of Illuminati so decided to do some searching on what they are about. This is what I found out and will leave it to you to decide if they are real or fake.

First off we need to understand what the name in itself means; it’s a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious of people claiming to possess special enlightenment or knowledge of something,

If we look up the word Illuminati we find out historically it was indeed about a secret society called Bavarian Illuminati who on may 1st in 1776 opposed superstition,  obscurantism,  religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power.

Charles Theodore with the order of the catholic church put the society to rest meaning it was outlawed and the death penalty imposed on its members. However years later conservative and religious groups  have said the group still practiced under ground and even responsible for the French Revolution.

The Illuminati are said to have placed special agents in important government and corporations who will help bring about a New World Order. What is New World Order; a conspiracy theory referring to the emergence of a totalitarian one world government, which could eventually have devastating effects on American political life, ranging from escalating lone-wolf terrorism to the rise to power of authoritarian ultra nationalist demagogues.

The “New World Order” term was used by politicians such as Woodrow Wilson, Winston Churchill who after world war 1 and 2 saw it as a chance to introduce  global governance  to address worldwide problems that go beyond the individual nation states to solve. This led to the forming of the UN and NATO.

The term New World Order has been used over the years by other people of importance as well but is believed to be a conspiracy theory such as that as the Illuminati.

Digging farther about the Illuminati, I found out that  Robert Anton Wilson a journalist for Playboy magazine and  along with writer Kerry Thornley sent in fake letters from readers about a secret organization  called the Illuminati then  sent letters from fake readers contradicting these claims,. They had hoped that this would get people to view the news a little more skeptically,  however people were so believable of the fake letters it stuck and the word spread world-wide. I wanted to know more so dug a little deeper in fact so deep that it was disturbing at what  I was finding.

Illuminati believe that religious and social ideals were out dated and that society needed to be illuminated to new ideals and to do this they would need to bring  population control by the spread of disease.

Some conspiracy theorist even believe they are reptile like. I’m not even going to get into that part of it as it’s definitely so unbelievable to me than some of the things I found on the Illuminati that you might give a second thought about.. But if you want to know more about it, google David Icke a British conspiracy theorist and you can find out more about that.

It is said today almost 200 years since the original Illuminati that they are believed to regulate world affairs, controls the media and pulls string behind the government affairs.  Even people from the music industry and many other people of importance are said be apart of the Illuminati. Hip hop started talking about it in their songs in the 90’s which fueled it back up again. People such as Madonna, Rihanna, Kanya West as well as many others. If you ask the internet who runs the Illuminati it will say Beyonce is the queen and Jay Z the King  who are known to use the triangle symbol as a dead give away to their involvement. Many other people are said to be involved right down to Donald Trump. I had to chuckle about all this and wonder how many people really believe it.

I spent about another 2 hours reading and watching videos about it as this kind of thing interest me but have decided for some odd reason I don’t want to write anymore about it as it gave me a terrible headache and it’s creepy as shit  whether you believe in it or not. I have come to the conclusion that  if there is such a  society then they are some kind satanic devil worshipers who have sold their souls to the devil to gain power and riches and therefore became known as the Illuminati. Being raised as a Christian I do believe there is a devil who portrays evil in the world. If New World Order is the rain of the devil I want no part in it. I do believe in the bible and the book of revelations though as it talks about all of this  happening. That is all I have to say on the matter at this time. I might write more about it another time but doubt it.

I’m thinking on doing an article later on what the triangle and eye symbolize with the Illuminati..  maybe ….maybe not…….

What do u think, Illuminati and new world order fake or real? I think fake on almost all  of it.

Someone could be watching you through your webcam, without you even realizing.

Do you think its possible for someone to watch you through your webcam. It’s very spooky to think that  someone could be watchin us through our webcams without our knowledge.  James Scott, a senior fellow at the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology in the US, published a paper called: ‘America Exposed: Who’s Watching You Through Your Computer’s Camera?’

d-man-dslr-camera-computer-human-try-to-take-photo-emerging-screen-34537583

He told Metro.co.uk that it’s surprisingly easy for hackers to take over your camera – or that sometimes, the malware could be installed before you even buy your computer.

Webcams can be easily compromised by even inexperienced and unsophisticated adversaries if the model of a webcam is inherently vulnerable due to a lack of security-by-design,’ he said. ‘Or, if it is intentionally made vulnerable during production as part of an adversarial nation-state campaign, or if the consumer practices poor cyber-hygiene and Information Security.’

How can you tell if someone’s watching you? The most obvious indication that a webcam has been hacked is the activation of the indicator light,’ he said. ‘However, this signal can easily be disabled by even an unsophisticated attacker.

The first thing Scott says you should do is immediately cover your camera with a plaster or something, so the perpetrators can’t watch you anymore.

You should then uninstall your webcam drivers, and run a complete scan of all of your drives using reputable anti-virus and anti-malware software (Malware Bytes is pretty decent). Once you’ve done this, and you’ve rid your computer of any malware lurking about, you can reinstall the drivers and disable the firewall rule.

First things first you should do  to keep this from happening to you is– cover your cameras when you’re not using them. You can either use plasters, or you can buy small webcam covers that can slide open and shut online. If you’re worried that covering your webcam will make you look a bit tin-foil-hattish, just remember that Mark Zuckerberg and Edward Snowden both cover their cameras.

As well as blocking off the cam, Scott recommends a number of other things you should get in the habit of doing as best practice. He says you should ‘regularly update and patch devices, drivers and applications’ to make sure you’re protecting your device. But you also need to ‘protect your system with a reliable layered security’ that includes the following:

  • A whitelisted firewall
  • Anti-malware applications from a reputable vendor
  • Anti-autorun safeguards
  • Tight administration controls that segment privileges away from active accounts
  • Spam and phishing detectors

And on top of that, Scott says you should regularly Google your webcam manufacturer and computer type, in order to check for any active vulnerabilities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nelson Mandela 100 Birthday Memorial

Nelson Mandela  a revolutionary, political leader, and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999 is being remembered on what would have been his 100th birthday.

NELSON MANDELA

Today the Nelson Mandela Foundation staff will be contributing to the Habitat for Humanity Mandela Day initiative building 100 homes to mark Mandela 100 & packing food parcels with Rise Against Hunger. What a great honor to this man.

On 5 August 1962, police captured Mandela who was accused over trying to conspiring overthrow the state. He spent many years in prison till 1990 when de Klerk the state president gave him his release.

Some of his best last words included “The world remains beset by so much suffering, poverty and deprivation. It is in your hands to make of our world a better one for all, especially the poor, vulnerable and marginalised.” this was said during his 90th birthday dinner in Hyde Park, London, England,  on June 25th 2008.

In 1993 Nelson and President dekirk were jointly awarded the nobel peace prize for their work toward dismantling apartheid in South Africa.

In 1994 he became the first Black president for South Africa continuing his role in bringing peace to Africans and bringing down apartheid. His policies saved innumerable lives. 3 million people were connected to telephone lines and safe drinking water as well as 1.5 million children brought into the education system. 200 million people were connected to the electric grid and over 750,000 houses were built providing shelter for nearly 3 million people. He used sports to bring the divided country together

After leaving office he openly admitted he didn’t do enough to address HIV/AIDS. In 2002 he established 46664 which was his prison number with the mission of promoting HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness.

Mandela is known to have won more awards than anyone in history included the Nobel Peace Prize. In 2001 he was he became the first living person to become an  honorary Canadian citizen.

Mandela died on December 5, 2013 after suffering a long respiratory infection.  We now Celebrate the legacy of his life on  July 18th with a Nelson Mandela Day, where an individual has the power to transform the world the ability to make and impact.

My respect for human beings is based not on the colour of a man’s skin nor authority he may wield, but purely on merit” ~ Nelson Mandela

Earth Splitting and Sinkholes

Have you ever in your life had a thought or wondered is it possible for the ground beneath you to give way like it does in earthquakes and split or disappear to nowhere, swallowing you up and you’ll never be seen again?

Top-10-Biggest-Sinkholes-In-The-World

I remember the first time I ever really thought about this was after seeing a Superman movie with Clark Clint being buried alive during a massive earthquake and it really bothered me and got me to thinking is there anyway that the ground could just drop right out from underneath you one day. I may have thought about this a time or two over the years  but more so recently  after learning  of the recent earth splitting and sinkholes recorded more so than average.

Multiple sinkholes and earth splitting are popping up all over the world, and recently a large a sinking hole in florida involving two homes. In kenya recently the ground has completely slit in half. This got me to wondered about the possibilities for causing this.

suswa-pic

Do you think this could be caused because of  climate change? Is it because of to much sand being taken from the oceans?  Could it be because of us stealing so much from the lands that mother earth is punishing us back? Are we putting to much weight on the top layer while taking sand from the oceans to build and construct buildings weighing the earth down?

In my opinion it is all of the above that’s causing the sinkholes and earth splitting.  Some of the biggest sinkholes are formed because of mining and tree removal.  As for the earth splitting I’m really stick firm on thinking this is because of climate change.

Is  the removal of underwater sand causing beaches and land to disappear? Or is this because of geoengineering? I think it’s both.

I think a person could go possible go crazy trying to figure it all out, but has be done in order to make sure the world will be left standing someday. And not being  a scientist or meteorologist I can’t give you a proven answer on this other than as before tell you my opinion on it. However if your a Christian like myself, then you are understanding this to be the ends of time coming as being talked about in the book of Revelations.

I think it’s safe to say though no matter what religion or beliefs we have something big is happening more to the earth than it has been and it’s more than likely because of its destruction by mankind acting like a God. Let me know your thoughts on this……

By 2020 1.4 billion of China Citizens will be given a Personal Social Credit Score

Lead-generation-la-fase-del-processo-di-acquisto-dei-clienti-Lead-generation-lead-scoring-come-identificare-quando-un-lead-è-pronta-a-comprare

I don’t really keep up much with the serious side of news these days, hubby burnt me out a year ago after keeping it on the news for 16 straight years. It’s also to damn depressing these days. Today I was watching a video on utube and it started talking about china’s new social credit system and I was totally freaked and in aww. Why haven’t I heard about this yet. This is a big thing, right? Scary… I wanted to know more about it and this is what I understand it to be about..

What is China’s social credit system?

The Social Credit System is a Chinese government initiative for developing a national reputation system. It has been reported to be intended to assign a “social credit” rating to every citizen based on government data regarding their economic and social status. This system was announced in 2014. The program is due to be fully operational by 2020, but is being piloted for millions of people already.

The system keeps an critical  eye on things like private credit scores, a person’s social score can move up and down depending on their behaviour. The exact methodology is a secret, but examples of infractions include bad driving, smoking in non-smoking zones, Other mooted punishable offences include spending too long playing video games, wasting money on frivolous purchases and posting on social media. Spreading fake news, specifically about terrorist attacks or airport security, will also be punishable offences. If your score gets to low you could be banned from buying plane tickets, renting a home, or getting a loan, getting a good job.

China has already started punishing people by restricting their travel. Citizens with low social credit would also be prohibited from enrolling their children at high-paying private schools. It’s not clear whether this particular policy has been put into action yet.

It’s been reported that already 11 million citizens have been banned from flying and 4 million from trains due to breaking these rules. Other rules include bad tweets, paying your taxes on time. My gosh there are many.

They have a list of untrustworthy people and you can very well find yourself on this list and being publicly humiliated . People feel they are being controlled by this list.

Despite the creepiness of the system — Human Rights Watch called it “chilling,” while Botsman called it “a futuristic vision of Big Brother out of control” — some citizens say it’s making them better people already.

Do you think it’s a good thing for the government to say its trying to purify society by awarding those who are trustworthy or punishing those who break the social credit system rules? Do you think this system will work? I’m really interested in your views on this. Please leave a comment about how you feel about it.

Teen Suffers Third Degree Burns from Giant Hogweed: Chunks of My Face Were Falling Off

31266612_1531442305531887_r

17-year-old Virginia boy is recovering after a giant hogweed plant left him with second- and third-degree burns to his face and arms. Alex Childress was working at his summer landscaping job on Tuesday in Fredericksburg when he unknowingly chopped down a large hogweed, a dangerous plant with sap that can cause severe damage to the skin,

The plant fell onto his face, but he thought nothing of the incident and carried the cut weed away under his right arm to throw it away. That night, however, Childress says he knew something was wrong when he took a shower after chunks of his face was falling off.

Later at the hospital in a burn center he spent an hour and a half scrubbing his skin to get the poison poison out..

Childress says the ordeal has put his life on pause. He says his scholarship to Virginia Tech’s Army ROTC is now in jeopardy due to medical disqualifications. His family started a GoFundMe page to cover medical expenses and cover college costs. Childress Go Fund Me page raised over #12,000 in 1 day.

“I worked hard to get the scholarship,” he says. “When my face heals, I have to go through a whole medical waiver process to make sure they won’t pull my scholarship. It’s a possibility I won’t be able to [attend in the fall], so that’s been a real struggle for my family.”

Childress is hopeful about his future, and says he’s speaking out about the ordeal to warn others about the harmful plant.

I’d like to wish Childress a speedy recovery.

Joel David Rifkin an American serial Killer

joel-rifkin-b136d7ef-a576-40d5-b772-63e3f7f2e8a-resize-750

Joel David Rifkin (born January 20, 1959) is an American serial killer. In 1994 he was sentenced to 203 years in prison for the murders of 17 women in the early 1900’s.  His fascination of Hitchcock’s Frenzy , led him to the murder of his first victim of a 25 year old prostitute. He beheaded her and put her head in a paint can. He later refers to killing his victims as a wrestling match since he was into sexual sadism with the 300 prostitutes that he claims to have slept with.

He didn’t know who his real father was and assumed that his mother was a prostitute since he was given up for adoption. After being adopted he spent his childhood and teenage year trying to fit in but was constantly being bullied.  He had a difficult time in college as well eventually dropping out. He moves in and out with mother, eventually staying with her, when he kills his first victim.

Rifkin started his own landscaping business in 1991, and he began using the rented job site to stash corpses until he could properly dispose of them. Among his victims during this year were prostitutes Barbara Jacobs, Mary Ellen DeLuca, and Yun Lee. Rifkin would go on to strangle 17 women, most of whom were drug addicts or prostitutes. Police were rarely able to identify the victims, much less the perpetrator of the crimes.

But in June of 1993, Rifkin strangled hooker Tiffany Bresciani and drove her back to his mother’s home, stopping at stores along the way for rope and tarp, while Bresciani’s corpse lay in the backseat of his mother’s car. By the time he got home, she was wrapped in tarp and concealed in the trunk.

Rifkin moved Bresciani into the garage, leaving her body in a wheelbarrow in the summer heat for three days. He was on his way to dump the corpse about 15 miles north of his home, when police troopers noted he was missing a rear license plate on his truck. When police attempted to pull Rifkin over, he began a high-speed chase instead. Panicked, he crashed his car into a utility pole in front of the local court house. As troopers came up to the car, they detected a strong odor from the back of the truck. It came from Bresciani’s rotting corpse. Police took Rifkin into custody.

Joel Rifkin is now serving 203 years in the Clinton Correctional Facility. He is eligible for parole in 2197, at the age of 238.
