Merkels new Nazi generals and false flag fixers inflame Greek tensions

Jane Burgermeister at BIRDFLU666 WORDPRESS BLOG CONTINUES HERE - 17 hours ago
*Ekathimerini reports on the disgust in the Greek army and public at the way Alexis Tsipras, clearly acting as the fixer of Angela Merkel, who made a special visit to Athens, fired top officers and replaced them with NWO lackeys. * *http://www.ekathimerini.com/237149/article/ekathimerini/comment/playing-games-with-the-armed-forces* *It's like watching Adolf Hitler coming to Athens, purging the Greek army of all the Greeks and appointing Nazi German generals in their place through his proxy Gauleiter.* *The Greeks wake up overnight to find they have the equivalent of Keitel, Jodl, Wa... more »

Heilung Genauer Definiert von M.N Hopkins

Stranger in a Strange Land at Stranger in a Strange Land - 17 hours ago
*Damit eine Heilung wahrhaftig und kraftvoll ist, genügt es nicht, nur den Körper zu behandeln. Man muss der Person auch helfen, eine Veränderung ihrer Emotionen und ihres Denkens auszulösen. Sobald dies geschehen ist, wird sich auch das Verhalten ändern. Denn die Außenwelt ist nichts anderes als ein Spiegelbild dessen, was tief im Körper jedes Menschen liegt. Denn wenn es viel Dunkelheit in den Geweben des Körpers gibt, wird es viel Dunkelheit in den äußeren Erscheinungsformen des Lebens einer Person geben - viele Probleme, Krankheiten, viel emotionale Schmerzen, etc. Als Heiler ... more »

Legalized murder

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 17 hours ago
I note with horror that left-wing/liberal/progressive voices have been celebrating - yes, *celebrating* - the latest abortion legislation in New York state. It's clearly designed to preempt any threat to the Roe v. Wade decision by a newly conservative Supreme Court. However, in doing so, it goes to lengths never before seen from - and certainly never before tolerated by - any legislature in this country. “Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to a... more »

No, China's J-16 Isn't a Stealth Fighter

David Axe at Test Feed Using Fields - 18 hours ago
*David Axe* *Security, Asia* State media exaggerates the fighter's radar-evading qualities Chinese air force J-16 fighters are getting a new paint job that can reduce the type's radar signature. The state-run *Global Times* newspaper *wrongly characterized* the newly-painted J-16s as "near stealth." That's inaccurate. Radar-absorbing paint can shrink a plane's signature, but not nearly enough to qualify the plane as stealthy. The U.S. Air Force, the world's leading operator of stealth warplanes, acknowledges this fact. The USAF for decades has applied increasingly radar-absorbin... more »
