2012, May 30 Charles Taylor Sentenced - Judge Gives Former Liberian President 50 Years In Jail

LEIDSCHENDAM, Netherlands — Former Liberian President Charles Taylor was sentenced to 50 years imprisonment Wednesday for arming and supporting murderous rebels in Sierra Leone in return for "blood diamonds," a landmark sentence activists hope will send a clear message to despots around the world that they will be held to account for sponsoring atrocities.
Taylor, wearing a blue suit and gold tie, stood grim-faced and silent as Presiding Judge Richard Lussick of Samoa imposed what will likely amount to a life sentence for the 64 year old.
Lussick said Taylor's position as head of state at the time of his crimes put him in a "class of his own" when judges came to setting the sentence – one of the longest ever handed down by the Special Court for Sierra Leone or any other international tribunal.
Taylor shipped arms, ammunition and other supplies to rebels in Sierra Leone in return for personal wealth in the form of diamonds mined by slave labor and to gain increasing political clout in the volatile West Africa region.
Taylor's reaction in court Wednesday was in stark contrast to the delight of survivors who gathered in the Sierra Leone capital, Freetown, to watch a live feed of the sentencing .
"That makes me the happiest person on earth," said Alimami Kanu, who was 11 when rebels backed by Taylor hacked off his right hand. He was one of thousands of civilians mutilated during Sierra Leone's decade-long civil war that ended in 2002 with some 50,000 dead.
Human rights activists and international law experts also hailed the tough sentence as a warning shot for war criminals.
"Today's sentence not only reflects the severity of Taylor's crimes but sends a clear message that individuals who aid and abet war crimes can no longer act with impunity," said Patrick Alley, director of Global Witness, a nongovernment group that campaigns to prevent conflicts erupting around exploitation of natural resources such as diamonds and timber.
The sentence came a month after Taylor became the first former head of state since World War II to be convicted by an international court. Judges found him guilty of 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including murder, rape, torture and the use of child soldiers.
"The lives of many more innocent civilians in Sierra Leone were lost or destroyed as a direct result of his actions," Lussick said.
Prosecutors had sought an 80-year sentence and said they are considering appealing.
"It is important in our view that those responsible for criminal misconduct on a massive scale are not given a volume discount," said the U.N.-backed court's chief prosecutor, Brenda Hollis.
Hollis said Taylor's prison term would only provide a measure of closure for victims of one of Africa's most savage conflicts.
"The sentence that was imposed today does not replace amputated limbs. It does not bring back those who were murdered," she said. "It does not heal the wounds of those who were victims of sexual violence and does not remove the permanent emotional and psychological and physical scars of those enslaved or recruited as child soldiers."
Taylor will serve his sentence in a British jail. His lawyers, however, said they will appeal his convictions and that will likely keep him in a jail in The Hague, Netherlands, for months.
Taylor's lead attorney, Courtenay Griffiths, criticized the court for refusing while setting Taylor's sentence to take into account his decision to step down from power following his indictment in 2003. Griffiths said that sends a worrying message against the backdrop of ongoing atrocities allegedly being committed by Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces.
"What lesson does that send to President Assad?" Griffiths said. "Maybe the lesson is: If you are a sitting leader and the international community wants to get rid of you, either you get murdered like Col. Gadhafi, or you hang on until the bitter end. I'm not so sure that's the signal this court ought to be transmitting at this particular historical juncture."
Griffiths said Africans should use Taylor's conviction as a starting point to campaign for justice for themselves.
"Justice isn't something which Africans should obtain, exported to them from abroad by the white man, the civilizing force," he said.
His comments appeared to be aimed not only at Taylor's trial, but also at the world's first permanent war crimes tribunal, the International Criminal Court, which has been in operation for 10 years and has so far launched prosecutions only in Africa, including in Sudan, Congo, Libya and Ivory Coast.
At a sentencing hearing earlier this month, Taylor expressed "deepest sympathy" for the suffering of victims of atrocities in Sierra Leone, but insisted he had acted to help stabilize the West Africa region and claimed he never knowingly assisted in the commission of crimes.
Judges rejected that argument, saying that while he posed as a peacemaker he was covertly fanning the flames of conflict by arming rebels.
Taylor stepped down and fled into exile in Nigeria after being indicted by the court in 2003. He was finally arrested and sent to the Netherlands in 2006.
While the Sierra Leone court is based in that country's capital, Freetown, Taylor's trial is being staged in Leidschendam, a suburb of The Hague, for fear holding it in West Africa could destabilize the region.
Mark Ellis, the executive director of legal group The International Bar Association, said the verdict and sentence should act as a deterrent – in time.
"So far in the recent history of these courts doesn't suggest that these courts are a deterrent yet. But that is the hope that eventually they will be," he said.
2012, Ap 24 John Hancock Suit Against JPMorgan Moved to Federal Court
By Chris Dolmetsch on April 24, 2012
John Hancock Life Insurance’s lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase & Co. over residential mortgage- backed securities was moved to federal court from New York state court.
John Hancock, a unit of Boston-based Manulife Financial Corp. (MFC), sued New York-based JPMorgan in state Supreme Court in Manhattan in January, accusing the bank of fraud tied to the sale of residential mortgage-backed securities.
Federal courts have jurisdiction because the claims arise under U.S. law, the case involves international banking or financial operations, and it is related to bankruptcy proceedings, according to documents filed by the defendants in state court today.
John Hancock bought the securities “in reliance on the false and misleading” statements made by the defendants, which include Bear Stearns & Co. and Washington Mutual Inc., according to the complaint. JPMorgan acquired Bear Stearns and WaMu during the 2008 financial crisis.
The suit seeks unspecified damages for market losses and principal and interest payments, as well as the cancellation of contracts and recovery of payments for the investments.
Pools of home loans securitized into bonds were a central part of the housing bubble that helped send the U.S. into the biggest recession since the 1930s. The housing market collapsed, and the crisis swept up lenders and investment banks as the market for the securities evaporated.
The case is John Hancock Life Insurance Co. v. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) (JPM), 650195/2012, New York State Supreme Court (Manhattan).

2012, May 25 Uncovering the Ancient Science of Sacred Spaces
Figure 1. The "rose line" orbital pattern of Venus.
This article is based on The Venus Blueprint: Uncovering the Ancient Science of Sacred Spaces, now available from EVOLVER EDITIONS/North Atlantic Books.
In ancient times, astronomers tracked the orbit of Venus very closely, discovering that it traced a pentagonal rose pattern in the sky over eight years (Fig. 1). Caused by a planetary resonance where Venus orbits the Sun thirteen times for every eight orbits of the Earth, this rose-line or "rosslyn" pentacle was greatly revered in the mystery schools. It was even used as a blueprint to design the "sacred spaces" of many famous chapels, cathedrals and temples.
As I came to discover, a sacred space is far more than just a matter of religious belief. It is a special kind of resonant chamber designed to enhance entheogenic communion and focus psychedelic visions. Suppressed long ago by the Roman Church, this was once the real purpose of ancient temples and many medieval cathedrals.
Resonant Symbols of Venus
In 2006, I saw a press release announcing that the resonance patterns of a song had been carved into the arches of Scotland's 15th-century Rosslyn chapel. Curious as to why resonant patterns would be carved into the architecture of a medieval chapel, I began to study the chapel. It was not long before I began to suspect that Rosslyn had been built to honor Venus and its resonant rose-line.
The most obvious clues were the thirteen cherubs and eight dragons carved into the easternmost pillars, suggestive of the 13:8 Venus-Earth orbital resonance. This connection made sense since the ancient Greeks and Romans considered cherubs the children of Venus while serpent-dragons were also associated with the Venusian goddess Shukra in the Rig-Veda. The discovery in 2010 of two manmade beehives carved into the chapel's roof seemed to confirm this connection between Rosslyn and Venus, as bees are an ancient fertility symbol for Venus.
Yet, there were more clues that connected Rosslyn with Venus. Pentagrams carved underneath the cherubs suggest the pentagonal rose pattern of Venus while each cherub is shown playing a musical instrument, an obvious reference to the goddess of music. This musical symbolism extends even into the proportions and acoustics of the chapel's architecture.
For instance, the inner dimensions of the chapel form a double square measuring 36 by 72 feet with a diagonal distance of 80.5 feet that is proportional to the square root of five. Since the famous golden ratio constant is derived from the square root of five and every orbital intersection of the Venus rose-line creates a golden ratio, the chapel seems built to harmonize with Venus. Add to this the fact that the choir loft height of 44.5 feet forms another golden ratio to the total interior length (as 72' / 44.5' = 1.618) and it seems hard not to conclude the Lady Chapel was built as a temple to Venus.
Acoustically speaking, these dimensions make Rosslyn chapel a natural resonance chamber that propagates sound evenly while suppressing reverb and echo. It does this because of the damping effect of the golden ratio, long used in the design of "anechoic" musical instruments, auditoriums, recording studios and speaker enclosures. As an ideal acoustical damping enclosure, Rosslyn reflects the same damping effect Venus had on Earth during the harmonic formation of the solar system.
The Venus Blueprint
The presence of so many Venusian symbols would seem enough to qualify Rosslyn chapel as a sacred space. Cherubs, dragons, bees, pentagrams, the golden ratio and acoustical damping all point to Venus as the source of inspiration in the design. Yet, as I dug deeper I found that the chapel was in fact part of a more complex, multi-layered "sacred" geometry corresponding to the human body and fertility.
For example, when the square of the chapel's overall length is combined with a circle having the same area, Leonardo da Vinci's famous Vitruvian Man fits perfectly within the chapel's floor plan. His navel aligns with the east wall; his face fits inside an underground room; and the famous Journeyman or "Shekinah" pillar aligns with his perineum to create an obvious phallic fertility symbol directly in front of the holy of holies altar. Since Leonardo was still a baby when Rosslyn was being built, the chapel's designers must have learned about the "squaring of the circle" and human-proportioned architecture from Vitruvius' original treatise De Architectura (Fig. 2).
Figure 2. Vitruvian design of Rosslyn chapel.
But, this is not all. When the triangular façade is laid inward, the tip touches the exact center of the Shekinah pillar. Indeed, a scale model of the Great Pyramid can be unfolded around this central fertility pillar to create the well-known Knights Templar symbol. Could all of this be part of the secret art and architecture of sacred acoustical spaces, I wondered, passed down from antiquity through some esoteric current?
The more I looked, the more sacred geometries I found. Still, I had no idea where this practice had originated or why it would be so important to create such geometrically and acoustically harmonious chambers for religious worship. That is, until I saw a mysterious etching on the south wall of the chapel's underground sacristy (Fig. 3).
Figure 3. Rosslyn Meru tower etching.
Resembling an oil derrick or electrical tower, the Rosslyn etching has diagonal struts and a flat top with a semicircle funnel or "cup" sitting on top. Through the middle of the tower runs an axis with two wavy lines wrapped around the top like the serpents in a medical caduceus. Finally, as an apparent reference to the orbital geometry of Venus, there is a pentagram star at the top left.
After pouring through various ancient texts to see if anything looked similar, I found a Jainist illustration of a tower modeled after an ancient sacred mountain named Meru. I learned this mountain tower was a Vedic stupa design used in many temples and government buildings. Studying the Rig-Veda, I learned that Meru was not considered a physical mountain at all but instead believed to be an invisible and transcendental mountain that extended from the deepest ocean into the furthest sky - a heavenly place where the gods danced and sang. Of course, this is an obvious anthropomorphization of the planets and stars into deities, but it is much more than this.
According to Vedic grammarian Pingala in his Art of Prosody (400-200 BC), Meru was considered a "mountain of cadence" known today as the Fibonacci series. Since this series converges toward the golden ratio, both Meru and Venus share this constant of nature. Discovering this, I began to wonder if the orbital geometry of Venus might have been used to design Rosslyn as a recreation of the sacred mountain and temple to Venus.
So, I overlaid the orbital geometry of Venus onto the chapel floor plan to see if anything aligned. Drawing a square grid from the orbital intersection points, I was stunned to see the orbital rose-line of Venus align with many features and dimensions of Rosslyn chapel. Converting the rose-line into a stack of pentagrams, I could identify even more alignments with the floor plan, including length and width dimensions, locations of pillars, placement of doors and even the thickness of walls (Fig. 4).
Figure 4. The Venus Blueprint of Rosslyn Chapel.
Surrounding the whole thing with the geometry of an egg, associated with Venus and commonly used in Vedic temple design, I found that the star-egg combination fit perfectly in the chapel. Naming it the "Venus Blueprint," I hypothesized it was used as a "temple template" to design sacred spaces that would resonate in tune with the 5-fold geometry of the human body and, in particular, the pentagonal egg of the cranial cavity. But toward what purpose would someone go to such trouble? What would be so sacred about this particular design?
Discovering the Venus Blueprint in the floor plan of Rosslyn chapel encouraged me to look for it in the floor plans of other churches, cathedrals and temples. To my astonishment, I found that many other European cathedrals do indeed use the same interior proportions and that many famous temples from antiquity even match the Venus Blueprint. St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican appeared to be based on this design, as did the Roman Pantheon and Greek Parthenon. Even Solomon's legendary Temple of Jerusalem seemed to have been constructed according to the Blueprint.
In finding so many examples, I could only conclude the orbital resonance of Venus had been the guiding model behind ancient temple building for millennia and that Rosslyn was a kind of Rosetta Stone built to teach the world about the Vedic concept known as the Sound Current that flows through everything. It teaches how the pentagonal resonance of Venus was used in ancient temples to ask the goddess to fertilize crops and assist in childbirth. It tells us how she was adored for her celestial fertility and assistance in ascending Meru after death. But most of all, the Lady Chapel teaches us through her musical architecture about spiritual freedom and how to liberate the mind.
In examining the acoustical properties of the chapel, I calculated that at a room temperature of 20°C, the chapel's prime resonant frequency is 27 hertz with a wavelength equal to the 72-foot interior length of the chapel. This means that the chapel is naturally tuned to A-422.25 - a tuning known as "classical tuning," used as the standard reference pitch during the 18th century. This is significant because it happens to be a very natural tuning that can help synchronize the human mind with the Earth and all of nature.
Twenty-seven hertz is about equal to the fourth harmonic of the Schumann resonance of the Earth's ionosphere - the very frequency where the human brain switches from Beta wakefulness to heightened Gamma awareness. Brain wave frequencies above 27 hertz then create the highest state of focus possible. The Gamma range is associated with peak concentration, enhanced memory, an increased perception of reality and even euphoria. The higher the frequency the greater is the cognitive ability.
There is also evidence that Rosslyn was heated during funerary rites to raise its tuning well above A-422.25, elevating human consciousness even more. Describing this practice is an old Scottish legend preserved in a poem by Sir Walter Scott entitled The Lay of the Last Minstrel. Scott tells how the chapel was seen engulfed in flames during the funerals of the Sinclair Barons whose family built Rosslyn chapel.
O'er Roslin all that dreary night,
A wonderous blaze was seen to gleam;
Twas broader than the watch-fire's light,
And redder than the bright moon-beam.
Seem'd all on fire within, around,
Deep sacristy and altar's pale;
Shone every pillar foliage-bound,
And glimmer'd all the dead men's mail.
... Then sudden, through the darken'd air
A flash of lightning came;
So broad, so bright, so red the glare,
The castle seem'd on flame.
... And fill'd the hall with smouldering smoke.
Not coincidentally, the temperature required to gestate a beehive is 33.72°C (equal to 93.7°F) - the very same temperature required to raise the tuning of Rosslyn up to A-432 or what is known as "universal tuning." At this hive temperature, singing the right chant and music could push the brain further into the Gamma range, perhaps even inducing what is known as "unity of consciousness."
Thus, the beehives in the chapel's roof, the symbolic children of Venus, may have been used as a kind tuning fork to measure the temperature and frequency needed to reunify human consciousness, fertilize the spirit and perhaps "hatch" a soul during funerary rites. It appears the Venus Blueprint not only creates a wonderful anechoic acoustical space to cleanly propagate speech and music but also a psychoacoustical space capable of triggering elevated states of consciousness.
Digging deeper into the history of temple rituals, I uncovered yet another clue that seemed to explain why such psychoacoustical effects were so important to temple builders. It had to do with the long tradition of consuming communal wine and bread in remembrance of various plant deities known as "Green Men." In Rosslyn chapel, there are over one hundred such Green Men carved into the architecture, symbolizing the importance of communion in temple ritual.
In the Rig-Veda, the Green Man was the moon god Soma who was associated with a communal wine of the same name. Researchers such as R. Gordon Wasson make a convincing case that Soma contained psychedelic Amanita Muscaria or "magic" mushrooms. There are many instances throughout the Vedas ascribing great powers to Soma and its ability to induce religious visions.
Oh, King Soma, prolong our lives
Like the sun who nourishes the days every morning.
The Soma is full of intelligence
It inspires man with enthusiasm
It makes the poets sing.
We have drunk the Soma: we have come to be immortal, we have arrived at the Light, we have reached the Gods.
Half of me is in the skies, and the other extends to the low depths
Have I drunk Soma? I am tall to the utmost, my elevation reaches the clouds Have I drunk Soma? (Rig-Veda 8.48)
This is not an isolated instance. Use of psychedelic or "entheogenic" plants was common in many other cultures as well. This includes the Greek Eleusinian and Dionysian mystery schools, the Roman Bacchanalia and even the ancient Etruscans, who practiced entheogenic communion on what is now Vatican Hill. Persians would ingest psychedelic Syrian Rue seeds used to dye "magic carpets" while the Egyptians ate manna cakes made with psychotropic plants, such as "blue lotus," Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms or perhaps DMT-rich acacia, the Egyptian Tree of Life.
According to psychology professor Benny Shanon at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, entheogenic communion was also central to the Hebrew temple tradition. The head priest would take a communion in the holy of holies on Yom Kippur that consisted of entheogenic wine and manna. Indeed, Shanon attributes many of the visions and miracles of the Bible to the ingestion of psychoactive plants. He suggests entheogenic communion was a central part of the Essene mystery school, but later replaced by ordinary wine and bread in the Roman Church to ensure religious visions remained exclusive to the priestly class (the Holy See).
In Rosslyn chapel, the many carvings of Green Men with leafy vines growing out of their mouths suggest this same connection through the Essene mystery school back to the ancient Hebrew communion ritual. It would not be a surprise to learn that such communion was even practiced in Rosslyn chapel, perhaps offered as a "consolamentum" to dying barons or taken on auspicious occasions.
The true purpose of Vedic temple building was now becoming clear. When combined with entheogenic communion, temples were designed to help propel one's consciousness into the sky in order to reach the heavenly summit of Mount Meru. Known as enlightenment or ascension, this occurred when one consumed the sacred plant known as the "Savior," the "Redeemer," the "Liberator," and "Anointed One." Through such psychedelic visions, one might "see the light" and be "born again."
To help focus and control these visions, first caves and then stone temples were constructed using the Venus Blueprint to help resonate the brain into the Gamma range of frequencies. Known as the "House of the Star" in Canaan and "Place of Intoxication" in Egypt, such temples were likely built according to the Blueprint to fertilize the mind inside the "variegated womb" of Venus. Here the Savior plant could be eaten and reborn into the mind of the worshiper, attaining "Christ [King] consciousness" and rising to the summit of Mount Meru to meet the goddess or other spirit who would impart prophetic visions and great wisdom. Truth is, this is the true religion of the world and unspoken source of prophecy behind countless tales of journeys into the underworld to meet the gods and goddesses.
The two together - the plant god and temple goddess - then represented the celestial congress of the Sun and Venus inside the mind. As I came to understand, this metaphysical union was a kind of reenactment of the rare conjunction of Venus with the Sun known as the Transit of Venus. The Vedic Saivite glosses actually describe this conjunction as the Venusian goddess Shukra being swallowed up by the Sun and later spit out as semen. Indeed, the Sanskrit word Shukra literally means semen. It was the Shukra seed of the Sun that was believed born from Vena's resonant womb into the waters of the Earth to create life.
"This Vena impels them who are in the womb of the variegated one; the membrane of light measures out the sky. At the contact of the waters and the sun the wise kiss him as an infant." (Rig-Veda 10.123)
Celestial fertilization of the mind was the real purpose of the temple. Consumption of entheogenic wine and manna symbolized the "virgin birth" of the Sun's son (the plant sacrament) inside the temple of the mind. In this way, the orbital geometry of Venus provided not only the blueprint for the sacred space of the temple, but also a blueprint for the ritual of ascension known as Holy Communion.
The Venus Transit
Coming in pairs only once a century, the last Venus Transit occurred in 2004 with the next one expected on June 5-6, 2012. Appearing as a black dot as Venus travels across the face of the Sun, the transit was known in ancient times as the circumpunct, Eye of Ra and the Birth of Venus. As the ultimate symbol of celestial fertility, the planet Venus was worshipped in the form of many different goddesses from Isis and Ishtar to Aphrodite and Asherah.
In ancient times, the celestial fertilization of Venus during the transit would have been celebrated in Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian and Assyrian temples (called ziggurats) using entheogenic communion and resonant chant. In many cases, sexual intercourse would have been part of the temple rite, representing simultaneous fertilization of the mind, body and spirit. This would have been the deepest meaning of the ancient philosophy "as above, so below."
In Rosslyn chapel, the Hebrew goddess of Venus named Asherah is represented by the Shekinah pillar. As the harmonic center and point of fertility in the chapel's floor plan, we might say the Hebrew god Yahweh symbolically inseminates the Lady Chapel here. Yet there is more to it than mere symbolism. There is a very real geometrical correspondence to the actual transit path of Venus across the Sun in 2012 (Fig. 5).
Figure 5. The Venus Blueprint and Birth of Venus through Rosslyn chapel in 2012.
Overlaying the Venus Blueprint onto the actual transit paths, Venus can be seen to align with the bottom two points of the pentagram during the 2004 crossing - then, with a 90-degree turn, pass right through the middle of the Rosslyn floor plan in 2012, reaching the midpoint of its solar crossing precisely at the Shekinah pillar. Symbolically, this path represents a kind of birth canal for Venus, gestating inside the choir's resonant womb for a while before being born out the rear of the chapel.
With the chapel oriented east-to-west and the Shekinah pillar facing the dawn, the Sun and Venus actually follow an east-to-west path through the sky even as Venus appears to follow the same path across the face of the Sun. As perhaps one of the most profound convergences of planetary harmony, temple design and religious ritual, Rosslyn is a stone map for the 2012 Venus Transit. As the fifth transit pair since Rosslyn was built, Venus joins with the Sun this June 5th-6th to deliver a new Sun.
The question, of course, is how could Rosslyn's 15th-century designers have known about the geometric alignment between the transit and the chapel's floor plan? How could they have predicted such an alignment in their design? The truth is they probably knew none of this and did not need to. They simply built their temple according to the Venus Blueprint and everything else just fell into place.
In the end, I became convinced that Rosslyn chapel and many other temples had been designed using the Venus Blueprint or something similar. I believe this was done to focus and control the effect of psychedelic plants while using psychoacoustics to resonate the brain up into elevated Gamma frequencies. Combining sacred plants with sacred spaces, our ancestors were nothing less than spiritual psychonauts. Using an advanced technology of brain resonance - resonating inside-out with entheogens and outside-in using psychoacoustics - they were able to access non-physical realities by methodically altering and controlling states of mind.
Once people were baptized with the sacred waters, the temple became a transceiver and spiritual launch pad to guide them into the realm of the gods. Used in funerary rites, this same technology was used to invoke Venus to guide the dearly departed into the afterlife where they might be reborn to the heavenly summit of Meru. (Fig. 6).
In this way, ancient worshippers were enlightened by the Venusian goddess and "born again" through the Green Man's "body and blood." Here was the real savior of humanity - a veritable blueprint for spiritual fertility that inspired vast temple complexes, great cities and proud civilizations. Here was the secret temple template for sacred spaces that guided humanity toward the development of music, science and mathematics, only to be discarded in the rush for political control. This is the forgotten story of the Venus Blueprint and its founding role in the rise of humanity.

2012, May 27 Lloyd's of London preparing for euro collapse
The chief executive of the multi-billion pound Lloyd's of London has publicly admitted that the world's leading insurance market is prepared for a collapse in the single currency and has reduced its exposure "as much as possible" to the crisis-ridden continent.
Richard Ward said Lloyd's of London could have to take writedowns on its £58.9bn investment portfolio if the eurozone collapses.
By Andrew Cave
2:50PM BST 27 May 2012
Richard Ward said the London market had put in place a contingency plan to switch euro underwriting to multi-currency settlement if Greece abandoned the euro.
In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph he also revealed that Lloyd's could have to take writedowns on its £58.9bn investment portfolio if the eurozone collapses.
Europe accounts for 18pc of Lloyd's £23.5bn of gross written premiums, mostly in France, Germany, Spain and Italy. The market also has a fledgling operation in Poland.
Lloyd's move comes as a major Franco-German provider of credit insurance for eurozone trade, Euler Hermes, said it was considering reducing cover for trade with Greece because of the risk the country might leave the eurozone.
When a company goes bust, it is often sparked by withdrawal of credit insurance for suppliers wanting to trade with it.

Greece would exit euro by breaking aid deal, Samaras says 26 May 2012
A spokesman for Euler Hermes, Bettina Sattler, told Bloomberg: "The outcome of the new elections in June remains highly uncertain. Consequently, the situation is further deteriorating. The risk of Greece exiting the eurozone has been revived.
"In light of the recent developments, Euler Hermes will most probably have to switch to a more prudent approach. [We have] maintained a high level of cover for [our] customers until today. But now we are confronted with a changing situation."
Lloyd's fears are likely to be shared by a number of European businesses, which are watching developments in Greece.
On Saturday, Juergen Fitschen, co-chief executive of Deutsche Bank, described Greece as a "failed state" run by corrupt politicians.
"I'm quite worried about Europe," Mr Ward said in one of the first admissions by a major UK business leader of the scale of the crisis that would be prompted by a eurozone collapse.
"With all the concerns around the eurozone at the moment, we've got to be careful doing business in Europe and there are a lot of question marks over writing business in the future in euros.
"I don't think that if Greece exited the euro it would lead to the collapse of the eurozone, but what we need to do is prepare for that eventuality."
Mr Ward says Lloyd's had been working hard on contingency planning and had the capability to switch settlement of European underwriting from euros to other currencies.
"We've got multi-currency functionality and we would switch to multi-currency settlement if the Greeks abandoned the euro and started using the drachma again," he said.
Lloyd's has de-risked its asset portfolio in recent years, with investments split equally into cash, corporate bonds and government bonds, mostly in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. "We have de-risked the asset portfolio as much as possible," he said.
The contingency planning comes as German politicians piled the pressure on Greece ahead of elections on June 17.
A conservative member of German chancellor Angela Merkel's cabinet said today Germany would not "pour money into a bottomless pit".
On Sunday, Swiss central bank chief Thomas Jordan admitted his country is drawing up an action plan in the event of the euro's collapse
2012, May 30 Fed To Propose Bank Capital Regulations In June
3:17 PM ET on Wednesday, May 30, 2012
By Alan Zibel
Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES
WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- The Federal Reserve said Wednesday it would propose new regulations for banks' capital cushions next week as part of an international agreement to make sure the world's largest banks can withstand heavy losses.
The central bank said it would propose rules that would implement a set of international bank rules known as Basel III at a public meeting on June 7. The rules are intended to make sure banks are strong enough to endure a severe shock, such as during the 2008 financial crisis.
Late last year, the Fed said it supported a new global framework set out by regulators in Basel, Switzerland, that requires the world's biggest financial institutions to hold extra capital as a cushion against losses.
In doing so, the central bank rejected arguments made by the largest U.S. banks, which contended the rules could harm the economy by reducing their capacity to lend.

2008, July 3 NIBIRU AND THE UFO CONNECTION - Part Four
by Greg Jenner
SECRET OF THE ALCHEMISTS
In the first three parts of this paper evidence was presented suggesting that elite societies were privy to the age-old secret of levitation. The Rosicrucian Order was one such group and Alchemists within acquired this ancient wisdom from antediluvian libraries hidden deep within the Earth’s crust. Furthermore, they discovered the fact that inner-earth terrestrials (who still reside within the Earth today) harnessed ‘anti-gravity’ by engineering and operating UFOs thousands of years ago. An esoteric technology the adepts eventually mastered themselves, deciphered not only from the written record, but also from direct communication with inner-earth emissaries—liaisons to the upper-world.
Continuing with this theme, I argue other secret societies were also in communication with inner-earth terrestrials and it appears the main objective of this dialogue was again to master the ‘flying-disc’ technology. The German Thule and Vril societies are excellent examples of this—spin off groups from the original Rosicrucians. In addition these societies, the Thule group in particular, discovered the whereabouts of polar tunnel openings or ‘bottomless pits’—Vimana gateways, if-you-will, to the subterranean world.
Another significant revelation I’ve uncovered indicates the subterranean dwellers actually worship a Black Sun! As a Dark Star researcher, this is important because the Thule society also spoke of a ‘Black Sun’ and referenced it with high regard. Why worship a Black Sun? I will shed some light on this question further on in the series. But first, let’s look into the origin of inner-earth terrestrials.
ANUNNAKI/ARYAN DESCENDENTS—OUR RESIDENT TERRESTRIALS
Exhibit 20) Michael E. Salla (Exopolitics ©2004)
“…The Nazis [composed mostly of Thule members] believed the “Aryans” were descendants of…[Giant god-like] supermen who had ruled the planet from [Ultima] Thule, ancient capital of this northern super-race. It can be concluded that the “supermen” the Nazis believed were…none other than the Anunnaki that [Zecharia] Sitchin had outlined in his work…” Page 232
Exhibit 21) Jim Marrs (Rule by Secrecy ©2000)
“…After years of dedicated translation and study, Sitchin realized that the biblical Nefilim and the Sumerian Anunnaki [also] represented the same concept—that in the Earth’s most distant past, beings [originally] came down from the stars and founded the earliest civilizations, a theme which has run through nearly all secret societies, from Freemasonry to the Thule Society…”
Here is a quick summary of events, according to Sitchin:
Exhibit 21 continues…
“…About 450,000 years ago, a group of spacefaring humanoid extraterrestrials arrived at planet Earth. They came from a planet about three times the size of Earth, which the Sumerians called Nibiru [or the ‘12th planet’ that returns every 3600 years—GJ]…The Anunnaki began a systematic colonization of Earth under the leadership of Anu’s two [rival] sons Enil and Enki. All of the Anunnaki leaders were…to assume the role of “gods,” or Nefilim, to their human subjects. Amazingly enough, one of these Nefilim was named NAZI. One must wonder if the twentieth century German occultists knew of this connection [and thus the Anunnaki/Nefilim/Aryan connection was born—GJ]…” Pages 379-382.
“…Over thousands of years Earth time—but only a few years to the Anunnaki—a thriving colony of these [Giant] visitors was put in place and their attention turned to their primary objective—[use homo-erectus as slaves to mine] gold…[a mineral needed to save their dying planet’s atmosphere, however]… problems for these extraterrestrial colonists arose due to climate changes, which caused hardships among the Anunnaki, and the unrelenting drudgery of the mining operations…” Pages 382-383.
“The Anunnaki had been mining gold on Earth for more than 100,000 years [however the homo-erectus stock was beginning to weaken]…the rank-and-file Anunnaki, who were [now] doing [most of] the back-breaking work in the mines, mutinied about 300,000 years ago…” [A great assembly was held in response to this mutiny and under the direction of Enki it was decided to manipulate the DNA of homo-erectus and create modern man for the purposes of continuing their mining operations—GJ]
“…The result of this human population growth and their increasingly close contact with the Anunnaki was predictable. Genesis 6:1-4 related, “When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God (the Nefilim/Anunnaki) saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose…The Nefilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them…” Page 389
“…about twelve thousand years ago…the Anunnaki leadership realized that severe [Earth] changes would occur with the imminent return of the planet Nibiru. [How ironic. The very planet that sustained them was about to destroy them during this particular fly-by—GJ] …According to the Sumerian texts, it was Enil’s rival brother Enki who [was sympathetic to homo-sapiens and] instructed…Noah how to construct an ark…” [To save humanity from the looming disaster] Pages 390-391.
So there you have it. Is Sitchin’s Sumerian account entirely accurate? You be the judge.
Other researchers suggest one faction of the Anunnaki, under the direction of Enil, escaped off-planet until the flood-waters receded. While others, with the assistance of Enki, (ki meaning subterranean I might add) escaped within the world-wide mining tunnel system, now known as the Agharti tunnel system.
According to the subterranean legend of Shambhala, Tibetan lamas say Giant inner-earth inhabitants (Anunnaki/Aryans) initially resided in the Boreal region of the Earth and were the last remaining deluge survivors of the ‘White Island’ better known as Hyperborea-Thule. Quoting from Jean-Claude Frere’s Nazime et socites secretes (1974) esoteric researcher Joscelyn Goodwin provides the following:
From Exhibit 2) Joscelyn Goodwin (Arktos: The Polar Myth ©1993)
“After the cataclysm that made [the White Island or] Hyperborea uninhabitable, perhaps…the inhabitants migrated to the region now covered by the Gobi Desert and there founded a new seat: Agartha. [See Part One—GJ] People flocked from all directions to this “center of the world,” which enjoyed 2000 years of brilliant civilization. Then another catastrophe occurred, its cause unknown: the surface of the region was devastated, but Agartha survived underground. Thither the great initiates traveled—Frere mentions Pythagoras [and] Apollonius of Tyana…to receive orders from the Masters of the World. The Aryan people migrated [underground?] in two directions: one went north and west, hoping to return to their Hyperborean homeland [Ultima Thule] and to conquer their lost territories. A second group went south, to the Himalayas, and their founded another secret center in underground caverns [Shambhala]…” Page 80.
From Exhibit 6) Louis Pauwels & Jacques Bergier (Morning of the Magicians ©1964)
“The ‘Initiates’ of the Thule Group were convinced that these [subterranean] survivors were Aryans, members of the original [Anunnaki] race from which all humanity had sprung…” Page 198.
Another proponent of Aryans and the Agarthian legend was Louis Jacolliot (1837-1890) and it was he who concluded the Aryans were originally ‘Brahmins’ of ancient India. Jacolliot’s belief was no-doubt adopted by the Thulists. However, in connection with the Hyperborean cataclysm, it was Saint-Yves who spoke of cyclical pole-shifts derived from Aryan/Brahmanical wisdom. In January 1897 Saint-Yves divulged this startling revelation, in the form of a corresponding letter to his French disciple named Papus, stating that planet Earth goes through a “Fourth” movement as yet unknown to science. See Below:
From Exhibit 2) Joscelyn Goodwin (Arktos: The Polar Myth)
“…The passage in which he explains [from a Christian point of view] the changes of the earth deserve to be read in full:
“The 11,500 years of which you speak are the result of a calculation on the Brahminical astronomical cycles. And, after the cycle concerned, maritime Europe, AS OUR GEOGRAPHERS KNOW IT, will have the same fate as [Ultima Thule and] Atlantis about a dozen centuries from now. The law of this cycle is inherent in the fact of a FOURTH TERRESTRIAL MOVEMENT, AS YET UNKNOWN TO SCIENTISTS. The fact, and its law, are the consequence of a spiritual Principal of beneficence and general order, violated from age to age by the perversity of the dominant races. This principle, divine in its nature, tends to maintain or restore the Earth to equilibrium, i.e. with its axis coinciding with that of the heavens, and hence in the planet’s normal biological state.
"Now, the deviation in the human substance brought about that of the entire planetary substance—of the whole planet: the rapid mobilization of the magnetic meridian in little cycles, ending with a cycle of eighteen years; the inclination of the Poles (third large-scale movement); and finally the POLAR SUBVERSION AND RECENSION, SENDING CAIN TO THE LAND OF NOD, precipitating the summit from its zenith to its nadir; in a word, BURYING BENEATH THE SEAS THE IMPIOUS RACE AND ITS CONTINENT. Keep to yourself, dear Sir, these redoubtable secrets of the ancient university of the Patriarchal Church, A TERRIBLE SECRET among many others, also known to the Prophets and disciples of Our Lord Jesus Christ. More than ever, the truth must be kept from the profane; not only for love of the truth, but also out of charity towards those who would desecrate it.” Page 213.
This amazing passage by Saint-Yves gives tantalizing clues of a subterranean “impious race” (See Part One) that was buried due to a cataclysmic pole shift. A secret even Jesus Christ himself knew about. Throughout my papers I’ve argued the only way a pole shift can occur is from the passing of a near-by planetary body such as Nibiru. The first century Roman Philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca also hinted of a pole shift: See below:
“A time will come in later years when the Ocean will unloose the bands of things, when the immeasurable Earth will lie open, when seafarers will discover new countries, and [Ultima] ‘Thule’ will no longer be the extreme point among the lands.” – Quote from Seneca’s “Medea”
IN SEARCH OF THE ‘WHITE ISLAND’—ULTIMA THULE
Exhibit 22) Dusty Sklar (Gods and Beasts: The Nazis and the Occult ©1977)
“…[Baron Rudolf von] Sebottendorff [Grand Master of the Thule lodge and founder back in 1918] had a love-hate relationship with …Freemasons. They were the prototype for most secret organizations. “The old Freemasonry,” he said, “had been a keeper of secrets which they had learned from the Aryan[/Anunnaki] wisdom and from the alchemists...” Pages 28-29.
The quote above suggests the Thule Society quite possibly could have acquired ancient manuscripts from a rich legacy of Alchemists, exactly how many manuscripts unearthed is anyone’s guess. The Thule Society obtained their name (pronounced Toolay) from a mythological landmass named ‘Hyperborea’ that existed beyond the North Pole.
According to Thulists, Ultima-Thule was the home of the Hyperborean/Aryan race and it was Rudolf von Sebottendorff who was responsible for initiating this esoteric belief into the heartland of Germany.
From the outset, Thulists were very interested in Iceland an explored it extensively. Why? Well, according to Pytheas, the famous Greek navigator from the 4th century BC, Thule was a six-day sea voyage north of Britain, so the Germans deduced Iceland had to be the location of modern day ‘Thule.’ However, what I find most intriguing is the fact that they believed in the existence of another ‘twin’ island landmass similar to Iceland located on the opposite side of Greenland ‘beyond the north-pole.’
In other words, the Thule Society thought if they uncovered clues within Iceland this would spring-board them to the landmass they were ultimately searching for—the original homeland of the Aryan Race, Ultima Thule.
Does a remnant landmass of Ultima Thule still exist today? Provided below are two magazine articles to support this. They are lengthy but I feel it is necessary for the reader to be informed with background information as to why this island homeland is so significant, which will become apparent further on in the paper.
Exhibit 23) Marcus Baker (National Geographic Magazine ©Apr. 28, 1893) Article entitled: ‘Undiscovered Island off the coast of Alaska’
“On a [German] map of the polar regions published in Gotha eleven years ago, land is indicated as existing north-northeastward from point Barrow, the northernmost point of Alaska…I have not succeeded in finding this land indicated on any other map, neither have I found any published statement respecting it...”
“…That there is an undiscovered or rather unvisited land somewhere north or east of point Barrow is a matter of common talk among the Whalers who annually visit this region. Captain John Keenan, of Troy, New York, master of the whaling bark Stamboul, of New Bedford reports that he and all his crew saw it while on a whaling voyage some time during the [eighteen] seventies. The Eskimos have traditions of this land and of a visit to it by their fathers “long ago."
“The known facts respecting this hypothetical (or should we say real?) land are…all unpublished. It is therefore seemed to me desirable to put these few facts on record, and that no place was more suitable than the journal of a society devoted to the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge.”
“The facts have all come to me through my old friend Captain E. P. Herendeen, who, at my request, has written the account to which these remarks are intended merely as an introduction. Captain Herendeen, a native of Woods Holl, Massachusetts, has been for many years engaged in whaling, having entered the Arctic in pursuit of whales as early as 1850…”
“From the natives and through Captain Keenan [circled in the picture] of the whaling fleet he has obtained the following information, which he has kindly written out for the National Geographic Society. I beg to suggest the desirability of calling this very little-known land KEENAN ISLAND....” [See Exhibit 27]
“Among the many traditions of the point Barrow Eskimo the following is not without geographic interest: Since no account is kept by them of the lapse of time, it is impossible to fix a date to any story related by them previous to the life of their father or grandfather. Their simple answer to any question regarding the date of these occurrences is always the same, “eidr«rnee” (long ago). Our story is this: An Eskimo was out on a whale hunt with his umiak and crew (in April or May).
"Venturing much farther than their companions and being encompassed by ice, they were carried away to the north and east by the moving pack until at last they CAME IN SIGHT OF A STRANGE LAND…”
“These tales, by whomsoever related, seem to bear testimony to one point, viz, of land somewhere to the north and east of point Barrow, which has been seen by some of these people under such circumstances of hardship, distress and loss of life as to have fixed the event in their minds and been related by father to son for perhaps many generations. It is often told that natives wintering between Harrison and Camden bays have SEEN LAND TO THE NORTH IN THE BRIGHT, CLEAR DAYS OF SPRING.”
“In the winter of 1886-’87, Uzharlu, an enterprising Eskimo of Ootkeavie, was very anxious for me to get some captain to take him the following summer, with his family, canoe and outfit, to the northeast as far as the ship went, and then he would try and find this MYSTERIOUS LAND of which he had heard so much; but no one cared to bother with this venturesome Eskimo explorer. So confident was this man to the truth of these reports that he was eager to sail away into the unknown, like another Columbus, in search of an ESKIMO PARADISE.”
“In the winter of 1887 several of the most intelligent of the cape Smyth Eskimo came to me about dusk of the evening of February 15 and reported that three strange men had come up from the southwest along the shore ice, and appeared very weary, but on coming opposite the village (which could not have been seen by the travelers before) they quickened their pace, turned abruptly off shore, and disappeared in the ice-pack. It was just as the sun was setting and the strangers could be seen distinctly, but not until they had gotten into the rough ice did it occur to these people standing on the bank that these three wanderers were strangers indeed; and the more they talked the matter over the more wonderful it seemed that any tired hunter should pass their village without stopping for rest and refreshment. It was evident that they turned away in fear when they saw the village and the people standing on the bank. Who could these men be who turned away from their hospitable village, where food and a warm welcome awaited them? They reasoned that every man on the coast from point Hope to point Barrow was known to all the others, and knew he would be welcomed to food and shelter. The more they talked, the stranger it seemed, until the conclusion was reached that these were “inutumuktua,” (LOST PEOPLE) and of course their home must be the MYSTERIOUS LAND OF THEIR FATHERS’ TRADITION. As a proof of this they said these three men wore white clothing, which was most likely made of white bear skins, while the Eskimo of the coast wear brown clothing made of reindeer skins....”
“…From my knowledge of the Eskimo, I am sure no one acquainted would have passed a village without stopping. It was near night, yet these men in evident alarm turned off shore into the ice pack and were never seen again...”
“…The only report of land having been seen by civilized man in this vicinity was made by Captain John Keenan, of Troy, New York, in the seventies. He was at the time in command of the whaling bark Stamboul, of New Bedford. Captain Keenan said that after taking several whales the weather became thick, and he stood to the north under easy sail, and was busily engaged in trying out and stowing down the oil taken. WHEN THE FOG CLEARED OFF, LAND WAS DISTINCTLY SEEN TO THE NORTH by him and all the men of his crew; but, as he was not on a voyage of discovery and there were no whales in sight, he was obliged to give the order to keep away from the south in search of them. The success of his voyage depended on keeping among whales.”
“This fact was often discussed among the whalemen on the return of the fleet to San Francisco in the fall. The position of Captain Keenan’s ship at the time land was seen and passed from my mind, except that it was between Harrison and Camden bays. A letter addressed to Captain Keenan by the writer in February, asking for more definite information as to date and position of his ship and other points of interest, failed to reach him and was returned.” [END]
General A. W. Greely (one of the 33 founding fathers of the National Geographic Society) further commented in the article and seemed to be surprised of Mr. Baker’s reference to the German map from 1882 indicating a landmass north-north eastward from Point Barrow, Alaska. Surprised because Greely did not have access to this particular German map. This is important because, like me, he was probably thinking how did the Germans acquire this information and why were they so interested in an Island landmass up in this region? In my opinion, there’s a connection here between the German Gotha paper reported by Mr. Baker and the steadfast search for the Germans ancient heritage of an Aryan homeland.
Exhibit 24) Sumner N. Blossom, Editor (Popular Science Monthly Magazine ©Dec. 1923) Article entitled: Will the ZR-1 Discover a Polar Paradise?
“…In the center of the unknown area of the Polar Sea may be discovered a vast [island] heated by subterranean fires, and inhabited by the descendants of the last Norwegian colony of Greenland!
So wild is the idea as to tax the most gullible imagination. Yet it is vividly encouraged and supported not only by history and tradition, but by the searching test of scientific analysis. Witness the astounding facts:
“Within the boundaries of the Polar Sea spreads the greatest unexplored area on the surface of the globe: 1,000,000 square miles on which no human eye has gazed!…Most of this enormous wilderness lies on the Alaskan side of the Pole. On the European side lies Iceland at a point corresponding roughly to the center of the unknown area opposite it across the top of the world. This fact is significant. Experts are in nearly unanimous agreement that a new arctic land will be found by the ZR-1. Doctor Harris, the tidal expert in Washington, D. C., long ago declared that the data he had worked out from polar ocean currents all convinced him that the existence of a large land-mass near the North Pole is indisputable.”
“Will the ancestors of the Lost Colony of Vikings who mysteriously vanished from Greenland centuries ago be found inhabiting a steam heated polar [island]? Eskimo tradition paints in vivid terms the White Men swarming suddenly northwards to a wonderland the natives long had known - a land of endless summer, rich in vegetation and game.”
“Add to this the array of evidence geologists adduce on the basis of terrific volcanic activity along a well-defined line leading up the North Pacific, through the Japanese archipelago, and the fiery Aleutians, and onward toward the Pole. This seismic axis plotted on the globe nearly bisects the unknown area of the Polar Ocean. Further, were this line swung through 180 degrees, it would touch Iceland, one of the most fiercely volcanic spots on earth. Another significant fact.”
“Still more: Not many years ago, in a particularly open season, the American whaler, Captain Keenan, reported that he saw a land northeast of Point Barrow. Peary, from Cape Thomas Hubbard, sighted distant peaks northwest. Such evidence is incontrovertible. The new [island] seems already within our grasp!…”
Now for its probable inhabitants.
“Eric the Red discovered Greenland in 985 A.D. He brought back glowing tales of grassy fiords, long sunlit days, game-infested hills, ice-pans groaning under their burden of fat seals, bays teeming with fish.”
“Dark ages passed, Nature bred again in men the will to search her world for knowledge and for wealth. Greenland was rediscovered. Hans Egede established the first modern settlement there in 1721. But the grim report he made was tragic beyond belief:
“The Norwegian colony, 10,000 people - perhaps 100,000 - had, to a man, mysteriously disappeared!
“The greatest riddle in the history of the world," it has been called - the baffling mystery of the lost Norse colony. Where did they go? Where didn't they go is a question more easily answered. Not to sea in ships, for they had but one or two; and Greenland, lying above the tree-line, gave them no timber for building more. Not slain by Eskimos, for Eskimos are the most peace-loving people in the world, knowing nothing of the art of war. Not, like Europe, swept by some dread germ of awful virulence, for germs don't thrive in polar regions.”
“What then? Examine the Eskimo tradition: It paints in vivid terms the White Men swarming suddenly north to a wonderland the natives long had known. Because of evil spirits, no Eskimo had ever dared this trail.”
“With my own eyes I have seen in Greenland the ruined stone houses of the lost Norwegian colony", writes Commander Green."With Donald B. MacMillan I have tried to reach the polar [island], believed to lie in the Polar Sea North of Canada.”
“As an arctic explorer of wide experience, Commander Green - now aid to Admiral Williams, President of the Naval War College at Newport, R.I. - has made an exhaustive study of the fascinating possibilities of discovery of which he writes. Following his graduation from the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, he joined the CROCKER LAND Arctic Expedition [see Exhibit 27—GJ] as engineer and physicist in 1913. He spent 3 ½ years in the polar regions. In the spring of 1914, with MacMillan and two Eskimos, he sledged more than 1,000 miles up across Ellesmere Land and out into the Polar Sea in search of land that tidal experts insist must lie in this million square miles of unexplored area. They also explored an unknown portion of Axel Heiberg's Land.”
Lieut.-Cmdr. Fitzhugh Green, U.S.N.. [shown here] from a photograph taken in the Arctic.
“…IT IS NO IDLE DREAM, SAYS COMMANDER GREEN, TO BELIEVE THAT ICELAND HAS A GEOGRAPHIC MATE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE POLE - A POLAR [ISLAND] OF MILD CLIMATE AND LUXURIANT VEGETATION WARMED THE YEAR ROUND BY HOT SPRINGS AND GEYSERS.”
“…This land, the explorer believes, may be about the size of Pennsylvania, and may be encircled by a lofty volcanic range of mountains buried in eternal ice and snow. Behind a veil of fog may lie a fertile plateau where heat, from hot springs, geysers and boiling pools defies the cold. The illustration shows the possible habitations of the modern descendants of a vanished race of Norsemen.”
“Picture the terrible situation in which the deserted Norsemen in Greenland found themselves: No outlet for their trade. No source of supply for the little but indispensable luxuries of life. No access to friends and families back home.”
“A generation - two, perhaps - of heartbreak and of longing; unhappiness goading the younger men to travel northward. Perhaps a route to southern lands lay that way. Suddenly like a bombshell breaks upon the weary colony the wonderful news: "We've found a polar paradise! Sunshine! Game! Grass! One moon's easy journey north! A short lap on the sea ice! Come!”
“What had they to wait for? A Century had passed since the last ship sailed. The last man who had seen a real Norwegian had died. The homeland was but a myth. So they "packed and, singing songs, departed," the native legend puts it, "suddenly to the northward." They never returned. The fact is not at all surprising if what we think is true - that they found a land of milk and honey in the very center of the polar pack. And it is perfectly logical to suppose that their descendants will be found up there next summer by the dirigible ZR-1, in dramatic isolation.”
“This map shows the proposed transpolar air route of the ZR-1 from Alaska to Norway. Cutting the distance to European and Asiatic capitals from 11,000 to 5000 miles, this route would pass across what may geologists believe to be an unexplored polar [island] on the opposite side of the Pole from Iceland. The curving dotted line indicates the possible route whit the "lost Norsemen" may have followed to this imagined arctic wonderland.”
“It is no speculation of wild improbability to picture a polar paradise, like some titan emerald in its alabaster setting. At Disco, Greenland, orchids warmed by natural hot springs blossom out of doors through the bitter sunless winter months! Weighing carefully all the facts available, we may set the area of the new land at about 50,000 square miles, or roughly the size of the state of Pennsylvania. Its perimeter is bulwarked by a quake-distorted range of mountains buried in eternal ice and snow, and rearing 10,000 feet into the sky. Twisting fiords penetrate the ragged ice-gnarled coast...”
“…No savages are these DESCENDANTS OF THE VANISHED COLONY. Indeed, we shall be mistaken if they are not FAR IN ADVANCE of our own smug selves in culture, learning, deportment, and social refinement. They have HARNESSED NATURAL ENERGY to an amazing degree. THEY KNOW THE TRUTHS OF OTHER WORLDS. THEY HAVE MASTERED THE SECRETS OF HEALTH.”
This amazing statement by commander Green implies the Lost Colony is well in advance of our own society, “They know the truth about other worlds.” Does this include knowledge of the solar system and a subterranean world? Thulean overtones ring loud and clear in Green’s bold statement. The Popular Science article continues…
“The ZR-1 may get away by early June. The weather then is calm; the daily temperature just above the freezing point. After her 6,000-mile flight from Lakehurst to Point Barrow, from which she will eventually take off, there must be a period of final grooming; possibly a trial or two out over the icefields. And by the Fourth of July, 1924, we should know the answer to this most thrilling of all man's geographical conundrums. Does a polar paradise exist? And, if so, are the vanished Norsemen there?”
“Commander Green's own…drawing, showing a cross section of the…arctic [island] - an undulating, fertile plateau, steam heated by hot springs, geysers and boiling pools and rimmed by a volcanic range of mountains. Behind this barrier rises a veil of vapor.”[END]
After acquiring these two magazine articles, I looked at numerous Arctic charts and maps to see whether another island does indeed exist to the extreme north of Point Barrow, Alaska. A futile search ensued of course and was about to give up when, low-and-behold, I located an “Unknown Island” on a map in the high arctic that wasn’t supposed to be there!
The scanned image above was obtained from ‘Readers Digest – Atlas of the World’ ©1990 (Exhibit 25) and as you can see an Island exists almost spot-on to where Commander Green predicted it would be! I’ve added captions to the original map (on page 46 in the Atlas) indicating the locations of Iceland and the Unknown Island. The landmass is much smaller than Green’s Pennsylvania-sized landmass, never-the-less, the Island is there and as far as I’m concerned its very physical and very real.
Arctic explorer Captain MacMillan, mentioned by Green in the 1923 Popular Science magazine article, was also convinced that this Arctic Island existed. Dubbed Crocker Land, he sighted it numerous times during his 1914 expedition. What frustrated MacMillan though was the fact that on clear sunny days he failed to observe it, however from the same vantage-point and with the same weather conditions, the Island magically appeared on the edge of the horizon. This could only mean one thing:
Exhibit 26) Jan Lamprecht (Hollow Planets ©1998)
“…Crocker Land had to be a mirage. They watched it change during the day as the sun moved…as MacMillan approached it, he found [Crocker Land] receding. Also when [MacMillan] retreated, he found the mirage at times behind him appearing near at hand when in fact he knew it could not possibly be…what if Crocker land was A MIRAGE OF SOMETHING MUCH FURTHER AWAY? Could this be true for [observations made of] KEENAN LAND…too? Could these lands somehow be related? Could these be different [magnified] views of one single [landmass]?…” Page 434.
Exhibit 27) ‘The Arctic regions’ Specimen Map ©1907 by the J. N. Matthews Company, Buffalo N.Y.)
The map shown above illustrates Lamprecht’s statement of how Crocker Land (circled lower-right) and Keenan Land (circled upper-left) were probably magnified ‘mirages’ of the same island landmass situated much further up in the high arctic.
Is this “unknown Island” a remnant landmass of mythical Ultima Thule for which the German Thule society was actively seeking? I say yes. By now you are probably asking what does this ‘Island Paradise’ have to do with UFOs? Well to answer this one has to go far back into the remote past. Greek mythology tells us that the god Apollo (little g) was a Hyperborean and according to mythological scholars Pythagoras was taught by Apollo himself. In turn, Pythagoras taught his students the principles of sacred geometry within ancient mystery schools, knowledge the Rosicrucians eventually acquired themselves.
From Exhibit 17) Geoffrey Ashe (The Ancient Wisdom ©1977)
“…Pythagoras is said to have been instructed…by a[nother] Hyperborean guru called Abaris…who rode through the air upon—a golden arrow. Arrows as MAGICAL VEHICLES, or as emblems of MAGICAL FLIGHT, are part of Siberian lore to this day…” Page 175.
So as you can see from the above reference, flying vehicles were connected with the northern Hyperborean homeland of Ultima Thule. A location, I argue, is situated toward the pole on the Canadian arctic side far north of Point Barrow Alaska. This island—shrouded in ‘perpetual fog’ according to Commander Green—is not recorded on any modern arctic chart therefore I cannot discount the possibility that mapmakers (belonging to secret societies) would purposely omit this geographical region known to have UFO activity. Outlandish you say? Well one only has to look on a Nevada map just north of Las Vegas to a secret location dubbed AREA 51. Others call it S4. You will not find it on any map either for there is a rumored top-secret ‘flying-disc’ program in an underground facility there as well. Yet satellite imagery reveals a facility does indeed exist there.
Yes, I realize many satellite images have been taken of the arctic today, however, cloudless images are almost impossible to obtain due to extreme weather conditions. Furthermore, only a handful of explorers have been in and around the region in question therefore the island would be easily missed if shrouded in perpetual layers of cloud and fog. Besides, to ‘white-out’ an Island landmass on an arctic map (surrounded by pack-ice) could be easily done just prior to publishing it to the general public. Check this out for yourself.
Some believe the Thule society sent Nazi expeditions to remote parts of the Earth in search of entrances to the inner-world. Ultima Thule (Point 103) in the Canadian Arctic, just mentioned, and Bunger’s Oasis (Base 211) in the Antarctic. Access to these hidden sites would give vital information about the Aryan/Anunnaki race still resident inside the Earth. The Thule society claimed to be in constant communication with an advanced human-like race with Nordic blonde-haired blue-eyed features now inhabiting the subterranean realm, accessible from the polar-regions.
Based on the Popular Science 1923 magazine article, I suggest the lost Norwegian colony from Greenland also stumbled across this northern polar opening when they found their polar paradise (Ultima Thule). In doing so, they must have extensively explored the vertical tunnel opening eventually contacting inner-earth terrestrials akin to the Nazi expedition endeavors. I cannot discount this possibility, especially when Commander Green himself suggested that the Greenland ‘Lost Colony’ was now more advanced than our own culture. Did he have inside information for stating this? If the case, I argue the Nazis probably encountered descendants of the Norwegian lost colony that assimilated into inner-earth society long ago. The Norwegians (Nordic Blondes) now work for the Anunnakian descendants by operating and flying some of their flying discs. An ancient technology the Nazis desired and desperately wanted themselves for obvious reasons.
There is much literature indicating the northern polar opening is through the Arctic Ocean, however I suggest the entrance is located near or on the remnant landmass of Ultima Thule itself. (Commander Green’s altered diagram, above, illustrates my point) If so, one can understand why this fog-enshrouded island has been omitted from all geographical maps. It encompasses a vertical tunnel entrance into the subterranean realm, a ‘bottomless pit’ if-you-will and the point of origin for many UFO’s! This alone would no doubt be a ‘national security’ issue for many counties.
According to my research a top-secret military base now exists at Ultima Thule akin to S4 at Area 51 in Nevada. This came about from clandestine diplomatic relations opening up with the Nordic-blondes. It also appears advanced ‘flying-disc’ information was obtained just prior to World War II as a result of this contact with the subterranean dwellers.

Courageous Conversations About The Journey To Forgiveness And Healing
Many generations of our people share in the great pain and grief carried in our hearts and souls. There now is a revolution taking place throughout Cherokee Country. It is a time of healing, and the time to heal our wounds is now. So, we pledge ourselves to free our people from the bondage of poverty, substance abuse, child abuse and all our suffering.
We have arrived at the place where we understand what has to take place for our healing to happen. We know we must find a way to deal with our feelings about the removal from our land, our ceremonies, our language, our culture and its devastating consequences to our people, our families and our children. By finding our way through this immense trauma we are ready to forgive the "unforgivable" and to come back into balance with our hearts, our ways and with the earth. We know this will not be easy, and we are committed to this healing journey. We ask you to listen to our story as it is a necessary step in our Journey to Forgiveness and Healing. We do this for all our relations.
The Journey to Forgiveness and Healing May 19-25th 2012
This journey and Homecoming is open to enrolled members of the federally recognized Cherokee tribes and their invited guests. There Gathering which is open to everyone who registers, at the end of the journey May 26, 2012 in Cherokee, North Carolina
The Cherokee Healing and Wellness Coalitions is hosting a the Universal Gathering on Saturday, May 26, 2012 beginning at 9 a.m. being held on the sacred grounds of Kituwah to honor the Cherokees who undertook The Journey to Forgiveness and Healing which began in Talequah, Oklahoma on May 18, 2012. The journey retraced the Northern Route taken in the forced removal of the Cherokees to Oklahoma.
This will be a homecoming of the Eastern Band of Cherokee, the Cherokee Nation and United Keetowah families. Together we (Cherokees of the three Nations) will celebrate as the survivors of a strong and powerful people.
We ask you to join us in this sacred Universal Gathering. Together, we will offer our thanksgiving to Creator, asking for the cleansing Water of Life to flow through us, for the Spirit of the Eternal Flame to embrace us, and drawing us together once again in peace and harmony with All Our Relations and balance with the Universe.
The Journey to Forgiveness and Healing
The Journey to Forgiveness and Healing is an effort to address how historical events, i.e. Trail of Tears and boarding schools have affected the Cherokee for generations, and caused an almost near loss of our culture. These historical events have had catastrophic effects and continue to be passed down from
generation to generation. The Cherokee Healing and Wellness Coalition is committed to giving those in attendance an opportunity to openly address issues that have affected their lives personally, professionally, spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. We want to give participants an opportunity to release emotions and express feelings of how they perceive the Trail of Tears affected Cherokees as a people. We hope that all who participate will on some level achieve a sense of peace. We hope to model combating these cycles to tribal members and to other cultures across
Indian country and beyond to Non-native cultures who have suffered oppression.
The Cherokee Healing and Wellness Coalition is collaborating with the United Keetoowah Band and Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma to plan a 2012 Journey to Forgiveness and Healing.
The Forgiveness Journey is an effort for the Cherokees to retrace the northern route of the Trail of Tears from Oklahoma back to our original homelands in Cherokee, NC. We will be stopping along the way where the Cherokees camped to offer up healing ceremonies.
We ask you to take an hour of your time and hear our story. the American Genocide.
Historical grief & trauma is:
“a cumulative and psychic wounding across generations related to massive root trauma.”
Maria YellowHorse BraveHeart
Indian Country 1492
In 1838 The US Army forced the Cherokee people to leave their homeland in the Southeastern US and travel, through terrible conditions, to the Indian Territoy in what is now Oklahoma. Most Americans know that thousands of Cherokee people died on the Trail of Tears, but few people recognize its lasting impact on the descendants of those who survived.
The Journey to Forgiveness and Healing is an effort to address how historical events including the Trail of Tears and the Boarding Schools have affected the Cherokee people for generations and how these events caused a almost near loss of our culture and identitiy, because of the removal, assimilation and acculturation process. This trauma has been passed down through the generations and is related to the substance abuse, domestic violence and the mental and physical health plagueing the Cherokee today.
Indian Country 500 Years after the arrival of Columbus
The Journey to Forgiveness and Healing will be an opportunity to address openly these issues and how they have affected our lives in every arena. We want to give an opportunity to release emotions and express how the Trail of Tears affected the Cherokee as a people. We hope all who participate will achieve a new sense of peace and hope, greater balance, improved health and well being.
For enrolled members and their families we invite you to explore new ways of coming together to heal ourselves, our children and the next 7 generations.
The Healing and Wellness Coalition hopes to educate and inform those in attendance how to break the cycle of unresolved grief and trauma and how it affects our everyday lives and families. Our outcome and prayer is that this event will be life-changing especially for our children who are our future.
This event is open to enrolled members of the federally recognized Cherokee tribes only and their invited guests.
Below is a link to a PDF File of a presentation on Historical Grief and Trauma by Patty Grant, LCSW,CSAG
Expected outcomes of the Journey to Forgiveness and Healing are:
To support and assist breathing new life into developing an overall cultural awareness of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and Cherokee tribes in Oklahoma.
To teach tribal members and other groups who have experienced oppression through a traumatic history, how trauma affects the following generations through ill health and emotions.
To educate how self destructive cycles spring forth from any traumatic history and take the form of anger, abuse, drug and alcohol dependence and other health problems, broken spirits, resistance to relationships, and an inability to express feelings and demonstrate care to family and relations.
To produce a resource guide to be used by others who have suffered oppression to learn the devastating effects of historical grief and inter-generational trauma.
