James Corbett, the Corbett Report: In 2001, Barry Jennings was the Deputy Director of Emergency Services for the New York City Housing Authority. After being called to World Trade Center Building 7 to help coordinate the emergency response on the morning of 9/11, he was trapped in the building for hours by a series of explosions that—according to the official government conspiracy theory—never happened. This is his story.
9/11 Whistleblowers: Barry Jennings
I fell asleep last night only to have a very sobering, deep dream within minutes.
I abruptly found myself in a pitched battle between two forces of about 100 men each. They were in an all-out, desperate firefight for control of a position that the attacking group badly wanted to take, and that the defending force was equally determined to hold.
Not until the top of a nearby earthen mound opened up, and a massive nuclear missile rose up from its underground silo with a thunderous roar and blasted away into the sky trailing fire and smoke, did I understand what the battle was about.
The attacking force wanted to take control of the missile silo and prevent the launch of the nuclear missile, in order to avert nuclear war. The defending force was bent on nuclear war at all costs, and fought fiercely to enable the nuclear missile’s launch.
The actual launch looked very much like this:
Where We’re Headed: The Great Cull Awaits
Icy Sedgwick: What does an Elizabethan mathematician, a northern pre-industrial town, and Beelzebub have in common? Answer? They all appear in the tale of John Dee and the devil in Manchester.
Dee, immortalised in the opera Dr Dee by Blur’s Damon Albarn, is a fascinating figure in Britain’s occult history. So without further ado, let’s pop back to the late sixteenth century and find out how Dee and the devil met up in a library…
John Dee: The Magician and the Devil in Manchester
Icy Sedgwick: What is psychogeography?
It’s not the easiest of terms to define. Over the years, it’s taken on a whole range of meanings. Academics describe it one way, practitioners another. Some of you reading this will probably disagree with the way I describe it. If you do, just remember there is no one way to practice it.
The term ‘psychogeography’ can be traced back to 1950s Paris (Coverley 2010: 10). Guy Debord, part of the Situationist movement, tried to make it a legitimate term. In essence, it describes the point where psychology and geography meet. It’s “a means of exploring the behavioural impact of urban place” (Coverley 2010: 10).
Psychogeography and Folklore: Walking the City’s Legends
National Folklore Collection UCD Digitization Project: 4,344 items from the Main Manuscript Collection, 250,452 stories from the Schools’ Collection (1937-38) and 11,386 images from the Photographic Collection are available here:
Belief in fairies and other creatures of the fae is ancient and deep-rooted in cultures around the world and hence there is a multiplicity of folklore and tradition surround our interactions with the fae as human beings.
Widespread belief in fairies generally died out around the 19th century, but that does not mean that people do not still report seeing or interacting with fairies in more modern times. In this episode, host Mark Norman discusses this subject with social historian Jo Hickey-Hall and they look at how modern fairy beliefs tie in with the older lore.
Episode 9 – MODERN FAIRY SIGHTINGS – With special guest Jo Hickey-Hall
Ellis Taylor: In July or early August 1998, Perth TV viewers, accustomed to ducking for cover from jarring salesmen shouting their iffy bargains at them were suddenly pounded by slick, on-the-button ads announcing an imminent and unmissable spectacular event. World-famous UFO researcher, Stanton Friedman, nuclear physicist, Roswell expert, nemesis of sceptics everywhere, was coming to the once quiet (except for the tele’ ads) little city of Perth. Stanton was in possession of the goods, he’d recently routed Philip Klass, self-proclaimed know-it-all sceptic, with documentary evidence and this Canadian bulldog was taking no prisoners. The noisy-negatives, as he called the sceptics, when he wasn’t calling them de-bunkers, had nothing to fight back with and holstered their smugs.
Stanton Friedman & the Reps
MegalithomaniaUK: Join Graham at ‘The Green Stone Convention’ on 26th October 2019 in Wolverhampton: https://www.andrewcollins.com/page/co… and at the ‘Origins Conference in London on November 16th: http://originsconference.co.uk. In 1979 Graham Phillips (http://www.grahamphillips.net/) embarked on a psychically-charged historical quest to find a mysterious green stone, a talisman said to have reached England from ancient Egypt at the time of Bronze Age, circa 1300 BC. Thereafter it fell into the hands of various illustrious and indeed notorious figures of past history until it was lost following the disastrous Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The Green Stone quest is a quest like no other, in that it resulted in the discovery of a short steel sword inscribed Meonia fore Marye and, in the end, the stone itself. Hear Graham’s remarkable story and some of his other ‘quests’ in this lecture that was part of the ‘EarthQuest Core Event’ at the Origins Conference in 2016. ‘The Green Stone’ book is now fully updated and available from Graham’s website.
Unfortunately I can’t watch it yet, but I’m hoping this is the brilliant story Andy and Graham tell of a terrifying incident to do with a cellar, an Egyptian mummy and a copper on a bike:
Heidi Niel_TTFN: The Greenstone – A Mysterious Paranormal Quest: In 1979, a team of investigators working for a magazine based in the Midlands of England followed a trail of cryptic clues to discover a hidden green gemstone once possessed by Mary Queen of Scots and a secret society called The Order of Meonia. Lost for over three-and-a-half centuries, the stone was said to hold ancient supernatural power. When the relic was taken to the offices of the magazine, an old Victorian house in the English town of Wolverhampton, inexplicable events, witnessed by dozens of observers, began to occur. To buy the book : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1… Graham, along with fellow researcher Andrew Collins (Ancient Aliens) will be giving a presentation at the 40th anniversary of this amazing quest. Tickets and info can be found here : www.andrewcollins.com/page/conference/conferencenews.htm This video is mirrored, WITH PERMISSION, from Graham Phillips channel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmq1J…
Well it wasn’t that story, and it was an Egyptian princess, not a mummy…but an astonishing tale nonetheless. Perhaps it’ll be in Graham Philip’s recently published book that is linked above. book. – Ellis
Ancient Origins: It can be hard sometimes for archaeologists and historians to gain public interest and support in a world so filled with a focus on technology and modernity. But it is not the case everywhere. Irish archaeology for example has a huge amount of positive public significance.
Recent findings in a survey on Public Perceptions of Archaeology carried out by the Heritage Council found that Irish people believe archaeology is more important than ever with 95% agreeing that archaeology is of use to modern society. This figure is a testament to the undeniable place of importance archaeology holds in Irish culture , especially when compared to the lower rate of 90% in Europe.
Ireland’s Archaeology has More Public Support than Ever!
Ancient Origins: On October 9, 1929, a German theologian named Gustav Adolf Deissmann was cataloguing items in the Topkapi Palace library in Istanbul when he happened across a curious parchment located among some disregarded material. On the gazelle skin parchment was a map, now referred to as the Piri Reis map .
