Think After Earth is just about Will Smith reconnecting with his son on a dangerous future Earth? WRONG. There's a whole baffling alien backstory, that you don't even know about. It's just not in the trailers. Journey with us as we attempt to untangle M Night Shyamalan's ridiculously complicated movie. And meet the Skrels, who kill humans! For unknown reasons!
Seeing Michael Ledeen named, in La Repubblica' s Oct. 25- 27 "Nigergate, the Grand Deception" series, as a conduit of the now notorious fake documents used in launching the Iraq War, comes as no surprise. To anyone familiar with the career of neo-conservative propagandist and off-and-on U.S. government official Ledeen, and his campaigning for war with Iraq and, next, Iran, it would have been a shock had he not surfaced in that connection—especially since the venue of the forged documentation on Saddam Hussein's imagined search for yellowcake in Niger was Italy, Ledeen' s old stomping ground.
The book you are about to read is one of the most important works of Marxian historical sociology on the workings of twentieth-century United States capitalism since James Weinstein's The Corporate Ideal in the Liberal State appeared in 1968. Its painstakingly researched revelations about how monopoly capitalists in the Council on Foreign Relations carefully and secretively planned the policies of modern-day imperialism and then introduced them into government will come as a surprise even to those who have followed the ugly manifestations of these policies with great care.
Please note right from the start, Blavatsky is telling you that Lucifer magazine is dedicated to bringing this “occult” or hidden knowledge to “light” so to speak. This means presenting it to the public. Manly P Hall did the same in his book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages. These “secret” things that we think are simply being leaked to the public, be it about Freemasonry, Skull and Bones, or any of the many other secret societies are being brought forth purposefully. Movies like National Treasure bear this testament will.
The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing* terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.
A secret document which sets out a procedure for dealing with child sex abuse scandals within the Catholic Church is examined by Panorama.
Crimen Sollicitationis was enforced for 20 years by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before he became the Pope. It instructs bishops on how to deal with allegations of child abuse against priests and has been seen by few outsiders. Critics say the document has been used to evade prosecution for sex crimes. Crimen Sollicitationis was written in 1962 in Latin and given to Catholic bishops worldwide who are ordered to keep it locked away in the church safe.
The title of my speech is “Christian response to the challenges facing Europe”. Perhaps there are some who think that I want to talk about the actual problems weighing down on Europe today: economic crisis, unemployment, demographic problems, migration and ethnic problems, violence, energy dependence, environment and climate change. We could discuss each of these from a Christian perspective as well. It would even be exciting, but I do think that there is something in particular, which is the root cause of this crisis, from where all of our problems – including the economic and financial crisis – really stems. My feeling is that until we are able to find an answer to this fundamental problem, we will only be able to provide symptomatic treatment to other crisis factors as well. Therefore today I would like to talk about the main challenge that – I think – Europe is facing.
Untangling the Web for 2007 is the twelfth edition of a book that started as a small handout. After more than a decade of researching, reading about, using, and trying to understand the Internet, I have come to accept that it is indeed a Sisyphean task. Sometimes I feel that all can do is to push the rock up to the top of that virtual hill, then stand back and watch as it rolls down again. The Internet—in all its glory of information and misinformation—is for all practical purposes limitless, which of course means we can never know it all, see it all, understand it all, or even imagine all it is and will be.
A comprehensive list of spending cuts is useful at any time; it is of particular importance when Congress and the President are facing multiple crucial budget decisions.
While those practicing Native Spirituality may believe they are practicing a completely unique form of spirituality, originating with them, they couldn’t be further from the truth. Native Spirituality is just one part of a vast movement that is creating a paradigm shift in our present-day culture away from biblical Christianity and replacing it with an allinclusive interspiritual global religion that relies heavily upon mystical practices. The results will create a “Christianity” that has no resemblance to biblical Christianity whatsoever.
