Possible New Source on Discovery of Frozen City under Antarctic Ice

 Written by Dr Michael Salla Ph. D.

A possible new source has come forward with corroborating information about the discovery of a large frozen city two miles under the Antarctic ice, located roughly 16 miles from the geographic South Pole. The breakthrough to the city occurred in August 2016, according to this latest source, and it was visited a few months later by VIPs such as John Kerry and Buzz Aldrin.

On November 18th, the source’s testimony was introduced in a video published by “Pete”, host of the Creepy Little Book Youtube channel.  He says that he decided to go forward in releasing the information since he had found a new source five days ago who had corroborated information gleaned from previous sources about events in Antarctica.

In the comments section of his video, Pete says that his sources are from outside the United States, and are not connected to Corey Goode and David Wilcock. Furthermore, when it comes to his latest whistleblower, Pete affirms that he is “confident in the sincerity of the source of this information”.

I recommend watching Pete’s video first before continuing to read this article, which will analyze and connect key points of his testimony to other important information, and assess the reliability of Pete and his new source...Read more, video:

'We have far more pressing issues,' says Inuk who backs Edmonton Eskimos name

By Katherine Barton, CBC News

 I really think that these politicians should put their efforts elsewhere and concentrate on things that affect our people more than a name,' says Kenneth Ruben. (Submitted)
If you think all Inuit are insulted by the Edmonton Eskimos name, think again.
Since the latest push by the mayor of Winnipeg to get the CFL team to change the name to something "more inclusive," many Inuit have spoken out on social media, and reached out to CBC North, to voice their support for the moniker.

 Kenneth Ruben, in Paulatuk, N.W.T., posted a message to politicians on Facebook, saying "We as 'the real Eskimos,' want the name to remain!!" His post has since been shared nearly 600 times...

Diversity Is Destroying The Cohesion And Social Capital Of Western Nations

by Ricardo Duchesne

 The academic world is totally dedicated to the diversification of all White-created nations. The research effort, the collection of data, the preparation of surveys, the proposals for lucrative grants, the long string of mediocre articles and books regularly published, are overwhelmingly biased in favour of mass immigration. It is assumed among all academics that White "homogeneous communities" without a program of diversification are inherently "backward looking", "reactionary", "anti-democratic", devoid of "youth" and "energy", and out of touch with the "requirements" of  the times...

Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust

Kevin Annett is a former United Church minister in Vancouver, Canada, who was fired without cause in 1995, and then expelled from the same church without due process, after he had unearthed evidence of the theft of native land by church officers, and of the murder of native children at the United Church residential school in Port Alberni, British Columbia, where Kevin ministered.

Since his firing and blacklisting by the United Church, Reverend Annett has worked as an advocate and counsellor in aboriginal healing circles on the west coast. He organized the first international Tribunal into Canadian residential schools in Vancouver in June, 1998, at which a United Nations affiliate, IHRAAM, presided. This website is a partial summary of that investigation.

Reverend Annett is working with aboriginal and human rights groups around the world in an effort to bring charges of complicity in Genocide against the government of Canada, the Anglican, United and Roman Catholic churches, and the RCMP. He is serving as the secretary of the recently-established Truth Commission into Genocide in Canada, and has authored a book about his experiences, "Love and Death in the Valley"...

Boom in boar population could cause 'significant issues,' Sask. researcher warns

A wild boar spotted near Big River, Sask., in November 2016. 'They will eat anything and live in almost any habitat in Saskatchewan, so we should expect some really significant issues if we can't turn this around,' says U of S associate professor Ryan Brook. (Submitted by Ryan Brook) 

 As wild boar sightings rise dramatically in the province, one researcher is hoping to find out just how many of the pigs there are in Saskatchewan so measures can be taken to control the population growth.

"In the late '80s, early '90s, they were brought over from Europe and Asia and raised as meat," said Ryan Brook, an associate professor in the University of Saskatchewan's college of agriculture and bioresources.

"What happened is a lot of animals escaped, and many producers went out of business and just cut their fence and let them go. They've really taken off in the wild."...

‘Super invader’ tree hits South, but flea beetle may be hero


 The tallow tree, a “super invader” with toxic leaves and no natural enemies in North America, is conquering the South.

Overtaking forests from Texas to Florida, tallows grow three times faster than most native hardwoods, and each one casts off 100,000 seeds a year. Controlled burns haven’t stopped their spread, nor have herbicide sprays from helicopters. Cutting them down works only when each stump is immediately doused with chemicals. Harvesting them for biofuel remains more a promise than a practical solution.

Some scientists say introducing a flea beetle from the tallow’s native habitat in eastern China may be the best alternative.

Yes, they’re aware of “nightmare scenarios” with other non-native plants and bugs, environmental scientist Michael Massimi said...'Super-invader'-tree-hits-South,-but-flea-beetle-may-be-hero?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=APSouthRegion

NIBIRU COMING? Mysterious trumpet sounds heard - Christians say it is sign of APOCALYPSE


STRANGE trumpet-like sounds have been heard in the skies over Canada and Indonesia which some have interpreted as the sign of the apocalypse or even that Nibiru is approaching.

Several people have reported hearing strange humming, loud booms, grinding metal and trumpet-like noises, according to a video which has gone viral.

Christians fear such ominous messages could signal the end, as the Bible points out that trumpet sounds will be heard before the apocalypse begins.

Revelation 8:10-11 says: "The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood.”

Some have even interpreted Wormwood as being the mythical planet of Nibiru, otherwise known as Planet X...

Sean Parker Says Facebook Was Designed to Be Addictive


Sean Parker, the billionaire early Facebook investor and Napster founder, says Mark Zuckerberg knowingly created a monster with addictive social media.

Parker, speaking at an Axios event, pulled back the curtain on Facebook's early days, saying it was designed to consume people.

And all this time everyone thought it was designed for people to consume.

Nope, all the sharing and liking were used like a drug to get people hooked on checking Facebook non-stop. "How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible," said Parker, referring to Facebook's earliest mission.

 On the banks of a creek near Jerusalem stands an enchanted forest, its trees shrouded by giant cobwebs woven by long-jawed spiders.

 Science and nature combined to create the unusual sight: the Soreq creek largely contains treated sewage full of nutrients that promote the proliferation of mosquitoes that serve as a source of food for spiders, which then reproduce in multitudes.

The Sunni-Shia Divide

Council on Foreign Relations:

An ancient religious divide is helping fuel a resurgence of conflicts in the Middle East and Muslim countries. Struggles between Sunni and Shia forces have fed a Syrian civil war that threatens to transform the map of the Middle East, spurred violence that is fracturing Iraq, and widened fissures in a number of tense Gulf countries. Growing sectarian clashes have also sparked a revival of transnational jihadi networks that poses a threat beyond the region.

Islam’s schism, simmering for fourteen centuries, doesn’t explain all the political, economic, and geostrategic factors involved in these conflicts, but it has become one prism through which to understand the underlying tensions. Two countries that compete for the leadership of Islam, Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shia Iran, have used the sectarian divide to further their ambitions. How their rivalry is settled will likely shape the political balance between Sunnis and Shias and the future of the region, especially in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain, and Yemen...!/sunni-shia-divide?cid=otr-marketing_url-sunni_shia_infoguide

.Chasing a killer: CDC scientists pursue deadly monkeypox virus in Africa

Along a narrow, winding river, a team of American scientists is traveling deep into the Congo rain forest to a village that can be reached only by boat.

The scientists are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and they have embarked on this watery journey to solve a decades-old mystery about a rare and fatal disease: monkeypox.

A cousin to the deadly smallpox virus, the monkeypox virus initially infects people through contact with wild animals and can then spread from person to person. The disease produces fever and a rash that often turns into painful lesions that can feel like cigarette burns. It kills up to 1 in 10 of its victims, similar to pneumonic plague, and is particularly dangerous in children. Monkeypox is on the U.S. government list of pathogens such as anthrax and Ebola with the greatest potential to threaten human health. There is no cure...

Feds Just Raided Muslims’ House In Virginia – Walked In On Final Step Of America’s Worst Nightmare


 The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic 30-year plan for taking over America from within was a closely-guarded secret until the FBI raided a house in Annandale, Virginia, where agents found a disturbing bundle of documents containing a blueprint for the Muslim takeover of our country. Now that the cat is out of the bag, we must do everything in our power to expose what’s going on, as startlingly, these

American-hating vermin are in the final phase of their 5-step plan to destroy our country.
Twenty-seven years ago, Muslim Brotherhood leader Yusuf al-Qaradwai traveled to America to organize Muslims across America, educating them with his diabolical plan for the compete Muslim takeover of America that would take 30 years to complete. It included a key tactic known as “Muruna,” where Muslims are able to violate Sharia Law in order to convince Americans that they are just like us. Just like an Ebola virus, Muruna is extremely effective, as Muslims are now able to seamlessly integrate into every facet of our society, as they make their way into our public school systems,  our federal and law enforcement agencies, and key positions within our government...

Mysterious Void Discovered in Egypt's Great Pyramid

Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza—one of the wonders of the ancient world, and a dazzling feat of architectural genius—contains a hidden void at least a hundred feet long, scientists announced on Thursday.

The space’s dimensions resemble those of the pyramid’s Grand Gallery, the 153-foot-long, 26-foot-tall corridor that leads to the burial chamber of Khufu, the pharaoh for whom the pyramid was built.

However, it remains unclear what lies within the space, what purpose it served, or if it’s one or multiple spaces.

The void is the first large inner structure discovered within the 4,500-year-old pyramid since the 1800s—a find made possible by recent advances in high-energy particle physics. The results were published in the journal Nature.

“This is definitely the discovery of the century,” says archaeologist and Egyptologist Yukinori Kawae, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer. “There have been many hypotheses about the pyramid, but no one even imagined that such a big void is located above the Grand Gallery.”...

Supreme court ruling clears way for B.C. ski resort on sacred Indigenous land

By Brian Platt

OTTAWA — In a landmark freedom-of-religion case, the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that a massive ski resort development in southeast British Columbia can go ahead despite a claim by a First Nation that it violates sacred land.

The decision clarifies a boundary on the Charter right to freedom of religion, establishing that the government does not have a duty to protect an object of religious beliefs. Instead, the duty is to protect the right to hold such beliefs and to practice those beliefs in worship.

“In short, the Charter protects the freedom to worship, but does not protect the spiritual focal point of worship,” the decision says.

The legal saga over building a year-round ski resort in B.C.’s Jumbo Valley has spanned 26 years, as developers first started the application process in 1991. The land is considered sacred by the Ktunaxa Nation because it’s home to the “grizzly bear spirit,” central to their religious beliefs and rituals...

New research sheds light on why cats and dogs lift their owners' moods

                                                               Creative Commons/Anne Lotte

Having a pet in the home — particularly a dog or a cat — has been repeatedly found to have a positive effect on people’s overall stress levels and mood.

As one researcher put it, pets are not “a panacea for emotional wellbeing,” yet “one's health and happiness improves in a meaningful fashion from pet ownership.” But what it is about human interactions with dogs and cats that lead to health and happiness benefits?

Two recently published studies offer some interesting insights. One found that dogs change their facial expressions in response to human attention. The other found that cats seek out contact with their owners after a long separation.

Such behaviors by our pets may increase our attachment to them — and, thus, our sense of emotional well-being...
