The Long March
Flight Lieutenant Adrian John Nichol (born December 1963, North Shields) is a retired Royal Air Force navigator who was shot down and captured during the first Gulf War...On his first mission age 27 during Operation Desert Storm on 17 January 1991 which started at Muharraq Airfield, an ultra-low level daylight mission on Ar Rumaylah airfield, while acting as number two to Squadron Leader Paul "Pablo" Mason with RAF Laarbruch-based XV Squadron, his Panavia Tornado ZD791 was critically hit by a shoulder-launched SAM SA-14, and he and John Peters were captured by the military of Iraq. After capture he was shown, bruised, on Iraqi television. He was tortured in the Abu Ghraib prison. John Nichol was released by the Iraqis at the end of the Gulf War...
"The March" refers to a series of death marches during the final stages of the Second World War in Europe. From a total of 257,000 western Allied prisoners of war held in German military prison camps, over 80,000 POWs were forced to march westward across Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Germany in extreme winter conditions, over about four months between January and April 1945. This series of events has been called various names: "The Great March West", "The Long March", "The Long Walk", "The Long Trek", "The Black March", "The Bread March", but most survivors just called it "The March"...On 4 May 1945 RAF Bomber Command implemented Operation Exodus, and the first prisoners of war were repatriated by air. Bomber Command flew 2,900 sorties over the next 23 days, carrying 72,500 prisoners of war...

The Phantom of the Opera is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the French novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux.
The central plot revolves around a beautiful soprano, Christine Daaé, who becomes the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius.
It had been seen by over 130 million people in 145 cities in 27 countries by 2011, the most successful entertainment project in history...
Hannibal Lecter has good taste – at least, musically speaking. So concerned was he with the painfully out-of-tune playing of the oboist in his local symphony orchestra that he takes it upon himself to kill and devour the offending musician, almost as a public service benefiting his fellow concertgoers...

Staines-upon-Thames, often referred to by its former name Staines , is a town on the north bank of the River Thames in the borough of Spelthorne in Surrey, England (historically in Middlesex). The town changed its official name from Staines to Staines-upon-Thames on 20 May 2012...
The town is within the western bounds of the M25 motorway and located 17 miles (27 km) west south-west of Charing Cross in London. It is within the London Commuter Belt of South East England and the built-up Greater London Urban Area. It is located on the Thames Path National Trail...
The town was the major producer of linoleum, a type of floor covering, after the formation of the Linoleum Manufacturing Company in 1864 by its inventor, Frederick Walton. Linoleum became the main industry of the town and was a major employer in the area up until the 1960s. In 1876 about 220 and in 1911 about 350 people worked in the plant. By 1957 it employed some 300 people and in 1956 the factory produced about 2675 m2 of linoleum each week...
The town was the site of the Staines air disaster in 1972, at the time the worst air crash in Britain until the Lockerbie disaster of 1988...The emperor Claudius sent the Romans into Britain in 43 A.D and they settled in Staines the same year. Soon after this invasion the first Staines Bridge was constructed to provide an important Thames crossing point on main road from Londinium (London) to Calleva Atrebatum, near the present-day village of Silchester. The name Staines comes from the Old English, meaning "[the place at the] stone[s]". The equivalent Roman name was "ad Pontes" (plural "at the bridges") implying that there was more than one bridge and it is believed that these bridges traversed Church Island...

Jenny Gallagher, a nurse who treated victims of the highly suspicious “Batman” shooting in Aurora, Colorado last month, is dead at age 46. The reported cause of death: drowning.
“She worked the morning after the Batman massacre in a very busy unit of the hospital — so she saw everything really, some really bad injuries,” her husband Greg reportedly
told< http://www.herald.ie/news/my-jenny-loved-saving-lives-s ays-husband-of-drowned-batman-hero-3202626.html >
Ireland’s *Herald *earlier today.
The mass-shooting, which left 12 dead and 58 more injured at a midnight premiere of *The Dark Knight Rises* at Century theater, is widely suspected
to have been a black operation (akin to Columbine< https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wx_iLIlqUVc > or

Jennifer Ann Gallagher (“Jenny”) lived in Denver and worked at the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH), where the largest share of the victims< http://www.ucdenver.edu/about/newsroom/newsreleases/Pag es/President-Obama-praises-the-tireless-work-of-hospita l-staff.aspx >
of the shooting were taken in the aftermath of the July 20th theater massacre.
On July 22nd, Barack Obama personally visited the hospital to meet with the victims and staff.

*WHEN AND WHERE: THE SCANT EARLY REPORTS OF GALLAGHER’S DEATH*
Gallagher was actually found dead ten days ago, on August 7th. Despite recent conflicting and incorrect reports about the location (multiple reports say it was in Colorado, while another says Ohio), The End Run has
determined that she was actually found dead in Okoboji Lake, which is in Dickson County, Iowa, about 700 miles from her home town of Denver by car.
Within 24 hours or less of the discovery of her body, a short blurb about the death, which did not identify her by name, was published by the Associated Press and picked up by several local
media< http://www.ksfy.com/story/19224980/drowning-reported-at -northwest-iowa-lake >
outlets < http://www.omaha.com/article/20120808/NEWS/120809802/17 07>. It
Drowning reported at West Okoboji Lake
OKOBOJI, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say someone has drowned at West Okoboji
Lake in northwest Iowa.
The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office said officers responded to a report of a drowning a little after noon on Tuesday.
The office hasn’t released the victim’s name or any other details about the drowning.
On the morning of August 8th, the day after her body was reportedly discovered, the Dickson County Sheriff’s office issued a press
release< http://dickinsoncountysheriff.com/news/news/91-victim-i dentified-in-west-okoboji-drowning >
(cache < http://www.webcitation.org/6A0M9IPBr >) identifying Gallagher as
the victim (although they misspelled her name) and providing a few additional details:
Victim identified in West Okoboji drowning
Published on Wednesday, 08 August 2012 06:30
On Tuesday, August 7, the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a drowning on West Lake Okoboji. An investigation found that Jennifer Galagher, age 46, from Denver, Colorado, had been swimming the previous night in West Lake. On Tuesday morning, Galagher was reported missing by
A short time later, a family member located Galagher underneath a nearby dock. Medical personnel responded and she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Assisting the DCSO were:
- Milford Fire/Rescue
- Arnolds Park/Okoboji Dive Team
- Lakes Regional Healthcare Ambulance
The incident remains under investigation by the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office.
The AP then published another blurb based on this press release, which was reworked and/or republished by numerous local media outlets, primarily
in< http://www.spencerdailyreporter.com/story/1879854.html >
Iowa< http://www.radioiowa.com/2012/08/08/colorado-woman-foun d-dead-in-west-lake-okoboji/ >,
where she was found dead, and in Denver,< http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_21263409/offi cials-iowa-drowning-victim-was-denver-woman >
Colorado< http://denver.cbslocal.com/2012/08/08/officials-iowa-dr owning-victim-was-denver-woman/ >,
where she lived. However, none of the short stories published in the local press at the time appear to have mentioned her connection to the then-highly-topical “Batman shooting”, or virtually any biographical information about her. The death of this national heroine does not appear
to have been picked up at all by the major U.S. national media. <Note: If this is incorrect, please send in links to the relevant stories by e-mail.>
Yesterday, nine days after her body was found, an article was published by Ireland’s Herald< http://www.herald.ie/news/irish-heroine-of-batman-shoot ing-spree-drowns-3201886.html >which
finally revealed some information about Gallagher and broke the story of her status as a UCH nurse and witness to the bloody aftermath of the carnage in Aurora.
This revelation has since been picked up and reported on by several other Irish sites, such as Ireland’s
Independent.ie< http://www.independent.ie/national-news/batman-massacre -hero-nurse-in-drowning-tragedy-3202398.html >
and the Irish-America
IrishCentral.com< http://www.irishcentral.com/news/Irish-heroine-who-save d-Aurora-Batman-shooting-victims-drowns-in-Denver-16652 1656.html >,
as well as the UK-based Belfast
Telegraph< http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/local-national/r epublic-of-ireland/batman-massacre-hero-nurse-in-drowni ng-tragedy-16199025.html >.
However, as of this writing there still do not appear to be any reports by the major U.S. national media.
Gallagher grew up in Ireland, but has
reportedly<http://www.herald.ie/news/my-jenny-loved-sav ing-lives-says-husband-of-drowned-batman-hero-3202626.h tml>
lived in Denver since moving there for college in the 1990′s.
*CAUSE OF DEATH: THE ALLEGED DROWNING*
To review: According to the initial press release by the Dickson County Sheriff’s office, Gallagher went swimming in West Lake Okoboji on the evening on Monday, August 6th, and didn’t come back. The next morning she was reported missing by her family members. “A short time later, a family
member located Galagher <*sic*> underneath a nearby dock. Medical personnel responded and she was pronounced dead at the scene.”
Ireland’s Herald.ie, who, again, revealed the Gallagher/Batman shooting connection yesterday, apparently conducted an exclusive interview with Gallagher’s husband Greg Pinson today, and they have now published a second
article based upon it. Mr. Pinson is a surgeon with Surgical Specialists of Colorado. According to his curriculum
vitae< http://coloradosurgicalservice.com/cv_pinson.php > posted
to the firm’s website, he received his undergraduate degree from Yale in 1994, his Doctorate from GWU in 1998, and did his residency at the University of Colorado School of Medicine through 2003. He is quoted by the Herald as having been married to Jenny for seven years. They have a five year old son, Jack.
Regarding the question of how Jenny died, the new Herald article
says< http://www.herald.ie/news/my-jenny-loved-saving-lives-s ays-husband-of-drowned-batman-hero-3202626.html >
(cache < http://www.webcitation.org/6A0MH2WRC >):
Greg explained that the family had travelled <*sic*> to nearby Ohio <*sic*> for a holiday when Jenny tragically drowned.
He and Jack had gone to sleep when Jenny and her friend decided to take a boat out on to a lake.
“She wasn’t a very strong swimmer and I suppose she just wasn’t able to stay afloat.
“The hardest thing is I may never know what really happened to Jenny.”
Before analyzing this, let’s get a critical caveat out of the way: It is very difficult to discern the truth when dealing with second-hand media snippets like these, which are liable to contain misquotes, out of context
quotes, misleading statements, and other misinformation. For example, the first Herald article incorrectly said that Gallagher drowned in “a lake close to her home”. The second article says that it was a lake in “nearby Ohio”. Besides the fact that Ohio is 1000+ miles from Denver, and thus not “nearby” at all, Gallagher was actually found in a lake in Iowa, which is also nowhere near Denver.
With that said, taken at face value, these two short accounts of Jenny Gallagher’s death (Sheriff’s Office and The Herald) seem to raise a number
1. Was she really not “a very strong swimmer”? Is her husband even correctly quoted on this matter by the Herald (who seem to have misquoted him elsewhere)? Jenny was 46 years old and a formidable athlete. She had been playing Gaelic football for over a decade, having competed in the North American finals in 2000. Recently, she and her teammates on the
Denver Gaels ladies football team competed in a tournament at the Colorado Irish Festival, which they won, beating teams from San Fransisco and Dallas. A tribute <http://myemail.constantcontact.com/The-Passing-of-Jenn ifer-Gallagher.html?soid=1104983095014&aid=vetwksvMOWQ >
published in the club’s newsletter says that “memories of trips with the Gaels” such as “surfing in Costa Rica” would not “have been so fond had Jenny not been
2. Why, while vacationing out of state, did Jenny decide to take a boat out onto a lake, at night, after her husband and son had already gone to bed, especially if she “wasn’t a very strong swimmer”?
3. If she did decide to do that, wouldn’t she at least wear a life vest?
4. Who is this friend that was allegedly with her? Why is this friend not identified by name? Why has this friend not been mentioned in previous reports?
5. If she did drown at night while boating with a “friend”, why were police and rescue crews not notified until the following day? The original Sheriff’s office press release said that she was “reported missing by family” the following “morning”. The initial AP report put the time even
later – “a little after noon” — and The Spencer Daily Reporter wrote< http://www.spencerdailyreporter.com/story/1879854.html > on
Aug 9th that, “Emergency crews recieved a 911 distress call at 12:45 p.m.” If a “friend” was out on the lake boating with Jenny and she disappeared in the water, wouldn’t this friend immediately rush to notify her husband and/or any other family member that may have been present, and wouldn’t they immediately alert rescue crews (assuming the friend hadn’t already)?
Why did this apparently not happen?
6. If Jenny was out boating with a friend, disappeared in the water, and was later found drowned, why would her husband say, “The hardest thing is I may never know what really happened to Jenny”?
7. Who was the family member that located Jenny’s body under the dock? He or she apparently did so shortly after notifying authorities that she was
“missing”, possibly even within minutes. The unnamed family member was apparently able to find her before professionally trained rescue crews. In fact, according to the Spencer Daily
Reporter< http://www.spencerdailyreporter.com/story/1879854.html >, this family member may have even “located” her before the crews could even begin searching: “Arnolds Park/Okoboji Fire Chief Christ Yungbluth said his
department’s dive team did not have to conduct a search. … Resuce teams were on hand for nearly an hour but once they arrived at the scene, Galagher was pronounced dead.” West Okoboji Lake is approximately 3,847 acres in surface area. The Daily Reporter said that she was specifically found “in the area near Wheeler’s Beach just off of 1st Street in the city
of West Okoboji.”
*THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE IS MUM; APPARENTLY GALLAGHER’S DEATH IS STILL UNDER INVESTIGATION*
In an attempt to obtain answers to these questions and clarification about the facts surrounding Jenny Gallagher’s death, The End Run contacted the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office by phone this evening (Friday).
The woman who answered the phone was familiar with the case, but refused to answer any questions about Jennifer Gallagher’s death. This included a direct question as to whether or not Gallagher was boating with another individual that night as reported by the Herald. The woman referenced the
August 8th press release< http://dickinsoncountysheriff.com/news/news/91-victim-i dentified-in-west-okoboji-drowning >
posted to the Sheriff’s website, firmly stating that she could not provide any information besides what was contained in that report.
When asked if she could at least confirm whether or not the incident was (still) under investigation, she again referred me to the press release from nine days ago, which says, “The incident remains under investigation
by the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office”.
Given the suspicious nature of the “Batman” shooting, Jenny”s (heroic) involvement in the rescue operation at the hospital, and the timing of her unnatural death, it is only logical for researchers who understand government black operations (and corresponding cover-ups) to treat it as a * potential* homicide, and seek further information that confirms or refutes
this hypothesis. This does not mean that it *was* a homicide. Accidents happen. This may have been a heartbreaking example of one. However, the publicly-available information about this death is relatively thin at this point, and it contains significant apparent contradictions and problems.
Further investigation is needed by the independent media.
According to accounts written by those who knew her, Jenny Gallagher was an amazing woman; a loving mother and wife, an excellent nurse, and a person whose personality and kindness brought joy into the lives of those around
her. Regardless of the cause, her untimely death is a tragedy, and my condolences go out to the many friends and family who knew and loved her. Hopefully others who investigate her death feel the same, and hopefully her family can understand our desire to seek further information about what
happened to her.

Philip Anschutz, The Big Dog of the CIRCLE
The BBC described Philip Anschutz as having, “A reputation as one of the hungriest of US corporate vultures.”
Philip Anschutz of Denver, CO is a man of legendary GREED. In 2006, he was ranked 89 among the World’s Richest People  and 33rd in the United States. He is the grandson of an aristocratic immigrant of Volga Germans from Russia that settled in Russell,Kansas with enough financial resources and political-social connections to open a bank.
In 1876, Volga Germans, mostly from the area around Saratov and Samara in Russia had began settling in and around Russell, Kansas. In 1762, Catherine the Great (1729-1796), a German native of Stettin, Pomerania, displaced her husband Peter III and took the vacant Russian imperial throne. In 1762 and 1763, Catherine published manifestos inviting Prussian-Europeans, (except Jews) to immigrate and farm Russian lands while maintaining their language and culture. Most of the Prussian-German immigrants settled along the River Volga in the region of southern Russia.
The prominence of Freemasonry among the aristocratic circles of Russia that included the Volga Germans were described with these words: “so many prominent Russians were Freemasons in the second half of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries that it would be easier to number those who were not than those who were.” I assume that Karl Anschutz’s Prussian-Russian linage and roots had been no exception.
Freemasonry did not find favor in the eyes of Catherine, the Great. She distrusted the “secret” nature of the lodges and feared they could be used for political purposes. In 1782, Catherine outlawed all secret organizations but nevertheless exempted Freemasonry. Catherine’s son, Grand Duke Paul, was a Mason. On the foreign front, her principal foe was Emperor Frederick II of Prussia, also an active Scottish Rite Mason. The rituals used by the Russian lodges were according to the Scottish, Schroeder and Swedish rites.
Kansas & the Knights of the Golden CIRCLE
During the Civil War and the late 1800s, Kansas had been a stronghold for one of the most corrupt, vile, obscene and subversive Confederate Underground forces in the war against the states, the Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC).
KGC was led by a terrorist and murderer, Colonel William Clarke Quantrill (July 31, 1837-?), above. Quantril had been a man among the most profane and obscene of the Civil War era. He had been described as “the bloodiest man in the annals of America”.
One of Quantrill’s Band of KGC was William T. “Bloody Bill” Anderson, above, with the KGC Masonic Left Hand Gesture above the Heart forming the Sign of Fidelity and “the CLAW” also known as the “DEVIL’S CLAW.”
Bloody Bill and his men were also among America’s most obscene, vile and deprived. They usually murdered their prisoners along with mutilating and scalping the dead. Anderson’s men adopted the practice of dangling the bloody scalps of their victims from their horse bridles.
Above, John Wilkes Booth, the Assassin of President Abraham Lincoln. Booth was one of the most infamous members of the obscene KGC with Left Hand Fidelity Gesture and “the DEVIL’S CLAW” with Jesse James in the background.
Among the Obscene included Frank and Jesse James that savagely attacked Union forces, Unionist homes and businesses, and anti-slavery settlements in Kansas and Missouri. Above, Frank and Jesse showing the KGC Left-Hand Masonic Sign of Fidelity with “the DEVIL’S CLAW” over the Heart.
The Knights of the Golden Circle was a Masonic Blood Oath society. Above, a rare KGC poster and look from the era. It shows their sacred CIRCLE.
Above, note the KGC Blazing Star in the middle and above the group, and SKULL and BONES (Brotherhood of Death Affiliation).
Brotherhood of Death, Mass Murderer Major-General (Brigadeführer) SS Walter Schellenberg forming the “The DEVIL’S CLAW.” You can’t go any further in the ABYSS of corrupt, vile and obscene POWER than the SS, Knights of the Black Sun, the World’s Greatest Racial Mass Murderers. Among the SS, Himmler also had his 12 (twelve) round table (CIRCLE) of profane Knights at Wewlesburg Castle. If you believe that the KGC-SS Brotherhood of Death’s “DEVIL’S CLAW” calling card is obscure and a thing of the past. Think again. It is being re-packaged and re-imaged in Mass Media.
Antonio “L.A.” Reid of “The X Factor” television show gesture “The DEVIL’S CLAW” in the current music entertainment industry. Reid is a mass media three-time Grammy Award-winning record executive, songwriter, and record producer. Best known as the co-founder of LaFace Records, he is responsible for signing and helping bring Mariah Carey, Pink, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Kanye West, Avril Lavigne, Toni Braxton, TLC, Usher, Ciara, OutKast, and Dido to multi-platinum album sales. He currently serves as Chairman & CEO of Epic Records. Think that is just an innocent hand-fist gesture? Think again.
Here is Reid with the “DEVIL’S HORN” and the ILLUMINATI Brotherhood Gesture with popular Canadian Recording Artist and Actress Arvil Lavigne with a Masonic 5-Point Blazing Star.
Here is Reid’s entertainment industry associate, Arvil Lavigne, under the Brotherhood of Death’s SKULL and BONES gesturing the “DEVIL’S HORNS.”
Entertainment Industry Mass Media Recording Artist and Movie Actor, Will Smith, gesture “The DEVIL’S CLAW” for “Hip Hop Generation” mass public persuasion and re-imaging.
In Religion, Politics and Money, here is popular right-wing Televangelist Pat Robertson gesturing “The DEVIL’S CLAW” for Middle America, again, mass public persuasion and re-imaging.
The KGC was organized out of the rank and file of the Scottish Rite by Confederate Brigadier Generals Bedford Forrest and Albert Pike to continue an underground and covert war by banding together the DEMONIC, CORRUPT and OBSCENE forces in a sacred Masonic circle against Slave-Free United States to redeem the OLD SOUTH,
“Expediency makes strange allies. Knights of the Golden Circle – Pike and bigwigs of the Confederacy’s political and military – drew into their tight little midst thieves and terrorists James, Quantrill, Younger and the Daltons…”
During and following the Civil War, the terrorist, outlaws and infamous bandits of the KGC amassed millions in gold, money and loot to fund its clandestine programs for a NWO that undoubtedly include a new and modern form of slavery led by Pike’s Scottish Rite.
In 1884, KGC moved its headquarters into Colorado Springs, Colorado and reorganized more secretly than before. The Knights of the Ku Klux Klan is the most notable affiliate of KGC that is still visible today. Nevertheless, there are persistent stories that survive that the descendents and secret Scottish Rite affiliates of KGC still control billions of secret gold and blood money treasuries of loot from the 19th Century. From a reliable source, the powerful and secret KGC exist and operate out of Colorado.
Anschutz‘s father was a land investor who had enough finanical resources to invest in ranches in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, and eventually went into the oil-drilling business. Anschutz’s grandfather, Karl Anschütz (born November 10, 1859, in the largely German region of Samara) emigrated from Russia and started the Farmers State Bank in Russell, Kansas.
Anschutz & the CIRCLE
Anschutz grew up in Hays, Kansas, with part of the family located in Wisconsin. Anschutz’s father’s oil-exploration business was called, Circle A Driling, which I read “A CIRCLE.
Anschutz lived in Russell with a neighbor and friend, former powerful right wing Republican U.S. Senator Bob Dole. Another neighbor of Anschutz and Dole was former U.S. Senator (PA), Arlen Specter, inventor of the Magic Bullet Theory in the JFK Assassination. Dole was a Scottish Rite Mason along with Specter.
In 1988, Santa Fe-Southern Pacific (SFSP), headquartered in Chicago was sold in large part to Philip Anschutz backed by Morgan Stanley. Clarity Media Group is the holding company for media properties owned by Philip Frederick Anschutz. These include the San Francisco Examiner and the Washington Examiner. On June 17, 2009, Clarity Media Group acquired The Weekly Standard, a conservative opinion journal, from Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation.
This year in 2011, Anschutz bought the parent company of the Oklahoman Newspaper. The Oklahoman, based in Oklahoma City, is the largest newspaper in the state with daily circulation of about 143,000 and Sunday circulation of about 201,000.
Anschutz, the CIRCLE, Scottish Rite & the Luciferian Doctrine
Anschutz investments also include the control of numerous entertainment companies, and co-founding Major League Soccer as well as multiple teams, including the LA Galaxy, Chicago Fire, Houston Dynamo, San Jose Earthquakes, New York / New Jersey Metro Stars and the Kansas City Wizards. Anschutz owns stakes in the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings, and venues including the Staples Center, O2 Arena, and the Home Depot Center. Anschutz also invests in family films such as The Chronicles of Narnia. Forbes ranks him the 34th richest person in the U.S. with an estimated net worth of $7 billion as of October 2010. I really don’t believe that you can get any closer to the elusive 1% that control 40% of America than Philip Frederick Anschutz.
Anschutz and the BAPHOMET Powers of Narnia, Lords of the Ring and Baphomet
Anschutz’s links to C.S. Lewis’ BAPHOMET, The Chronicles of Narnia, is revealing to say the least. Reportedly, he had pleaded with Lewis’s heirs to produce Lewis’ books of “Narnia” into family entertainment motion pictures. J. R. R. Tolkien, creator of Luciferian “Lords of the Ring” books and movies and C.S. Lewis were both London Oxford University professors and members of a society among the professors known as “The Inklings”.
C. S. Lewis called Charles Williams “his dearest friend.” Williams was a fellow Inkling. He was a specialist in Tarot and Kabbalah. He was described as a man whose mind was steeped in occult rituals and demonic forces. Demonic Williams had a large impact on Lewis and his writings. C. S. Lewis wrote of Williams’ poems: ‘They seem to me… for their profound wisdom, to be among the two or three most valuable books of verse produced in the century.”
Charles Williams was also a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Many have reason to believe that both Tolkien and Lewis were secret Luciferian members of the Golden Dawn (Masters of Corrupt and Obsense Powers). The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was an amalgamation of Freemasonry and Theosophy. Luciferian Madame H.P. Blavatsky was the founder of Theosophy. Theosophy is a Luciferian-Satanic/occult religious philosophy. The Golden Dawn was the domain of Baphomet and Luciferian Eliphas Levi’s Teachings of Enochian Magic.
Levi’s Enochian Magic is an elaborate system of advanced Luciferian-Satanic ceremonial magic involving Kabbalah (The highest level of Jewish witchcraft) and medieval grimoire (a manual of black magic for invoking spirits and demons). Among the first initiates of the Order of the Golden Dawn was a coroner who allegedly performed necromantic rites and the World’s Most Renowned Luciferian, Aleister Crowley, the Great Beast 666.
I certainly cannot prove that there is a definite connection between Anschutz and the Scottish Rite, BAPHOMET and KGS. Scottish Rite Freemasonry and KGS are by their very nature Blood Oath secret societies, but there is enough circumstantial evidence that tends more to suggest a connection than there isn’t.
The CIRCLE Revealed, O2 Arena
The O2 Arena in London where MJ was to perform the AEG Live tour was developed by Anschutz. I read the name of the arena as, CIRCLE Too; it is among the CIRCLE Also. O2 is a circle with (12) twelve golden pillars.
The Golden Circle was run by thirteen of the best and wealthiest men in the Old South. The Master sat on the Throne of the East and gave out his wisdom and directions to twelve so-called Disciples, who in turn each had (12) twelve disciples. The only way one could get into the Inner Sanctum or Inner Circle was when one of the Master’s (12) Twelve died off or retired.
Anschutz Corporation Logo Revealed, THE BAPHOMET TRIANGLE
Anschutz’s embolismic is an occulted inverted slanted triangle that is consistent with Baphomet’s inverted triangle or pyramid out of Aleister Crowley’s early profane Luciferian O.T.O, but may more likely represent the 3 stars that bracket Virgo Constellaton, discussed below.
Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) Live Logo Revealed, The Masonic Blazing Star
Anschutz’s embolismic 5-Point Star logo for AEG Live is the Masonic 5-Point Blazing Star. The masonry-stone star is taken from a Paris Lodge from the 19th Century. The Masonic Blazing Star is one of the most important symbols of Freemasonry. Like many other Freemason symbols, it undoubtedly derives this importance, first, from the repeated use that is made of it as a Masonic emblem; and second, from its great antiquity, as a symbol derived from older systems.
Anschutz Chicago Fire Logo Revealed, The Knights Templar Rose Croix
Anschutz’s embolismic logo for the Chicago Fire is within the Masonic Rose Croix. Above, Chicago Fire Logo with Knight Templar Symbol and Rose Croix. According to Jean-Pierre Bayard, two Rosicrucian-inspired Masonic rites emerged towards the end of 18th century, the Rectified Scottish Rite, widespread in Central Europe where there was a strong presence of the “Golden and Rosy Cross“, and the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, first practiced in France, in which the 18th degree is called Knight of the Rose Croix.
Anschutz Houston Dynamo, Masonic Blazing Star & 5-Point Star
“… the blazing star has been regard as the emblem of Ominiscience, or the All-Seeing Eye, which to the ancients was the Sun” -Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 506
Anschutz’s Los Angeles Galaxy, Masonic Blazing Star
Anschutz’s embolismic logo for the LA Galaxy is the Dog Star scared to Freemasonry. The first degree of Freemasonry mentions the Blazing Star as one of the ornaments of the Lodge. Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky and is located in the constellation Cannis Major, hence the name “Dog Star.”
“To find in the BLAZING STAR of five points an allusion to the Divine Providence, is also fanciful; and to make it commemorative of the Star that is said to have guided the Magi, is to give it a meaning comparatively modern… The Ancient Astronomers saw all the great Symbols of Masonry in the Stars. Sirius glitters in our lodges as the Blazing Star.” – Albert Pike from Morals and Dogma, page 14-15.

On the evening of May 29, 1997, Buckley's band flew to Memphis intending to join him in his studio there to work on the newly written material. That same evening, Buckley went swimming in Wolf River Harbor, a slackwater channel of the Mississippi River, while wearing boots, all of his clothing, and singing the chorus of the song "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin. Buckley had gone swimming there several times before. A roadie in Buckley's band, Keith Foti, remained on shore. After moving a radio and guitar out of reach of the wake from a passing tugboat, Foti looked up to see that Buckley had vanished. Despite a determined rescue effort that night, Buckley remained missing. On June 4, two locals spotted his body in the Mississippi River near a riverboat, and it was brought to land...Buckley's autopsy showed no signs of drugs or alcohol in his system and the death was ruled as an accidental drowning...

Gematria or gimatria (Hebrew: גימטריה gēmaṭriyā) is a system of assigning numerical value to a word or phrase, in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other, or bear some relation to the number itself as it may apply to a person's age, the calendar year, or the like. It is likely that the term derives from the order of the Greek alphabet, gamma being the third letter of the Greek alphabet (gamma + tria)...

The New Testament is an anthology, a collection of Christian works written in the common Greek language of the first century, at different times by various writers, and canonically named for the early Jewish disciples of Jesus of Nazareth. In almost all Christian traditions today, the New Testament consists of 27 books. The original texts were written in the first and second centuries of the Christian Era, most likely in Koine Greek, which was the common language of the Eastern Mediterranean from the Conquests of Alexander the Great (335–323 BC) till the evolution of Byzantine Greek (c. 600). All of the works which would eventually be incorporated into the New Testament would seem to have been written no later than around AD 150...

The story follows the exploits of seven children as they are terrorized by the eponymous being, which exploits the fears and phobias of its victims in order to disguise itself while hunting its prey. "It" primarily appears in the form of a clown in order to attract its preferred prey of young children...In October 1957, an evil shape-shifting being, known only as "It", awakens in the town of Derry, Maine. Taking the form of a clown named Pennywise, It lives in the sewers under the town and comes up through places connected to the sewer system...
The seven kids are united by their unhappy lives, their misery at being the victims of bullying and their eventual struggle to overcome It...A mysterious entity, It is a monster of unknown origin which preys on Derry's children every three decades, stating It finds the fear in children akin to "salt(ing) the meat". Among Its powers is shape shifting into a form that induces fear...Its awakening and return to hibernation mark the greatest instances of violence during Its time awake, such as the disappearance of over three hundred settlers from Derry Township in 1740–43. During the 1950s, It awoke during a great storm which flooded part of the city and murdered George before going on a feeding spree. However, when the Losers' Club forced It to return to an early hibernation when heavily wounded by the young Bill Denbrough in the first Ritual of Chüd...IT returns once every 27 years to leave behind a trail of destruction, both literally and figuratively...

The name Derry is an anglicisation of the Irish name Daire or Doire meaning "oak grove"...In Chöd, the adept symbolically offers the flesh of their body in a form of gaṇacakra or tantric feast.

Some of America's richest, most powerful men meet regularly at an exclusive resort on an island off Georgia. A Nazi "sleeper agent," code named 27, living in the U.S. since 1933, plans to kidnap these VIPs and hold them hostage in exchange for Roosevelt's guarantee that the U.S. will stay out of the war. Larger-than-life Francis Keegan, a wealthy American ex-bootlegger and friend of FDR, is agent 27's nemesis. Keegan's fiancee, a Berlin cabaret singer, had been sent to Dachau because her Jewish half-brother belonged to secret anti-Nazi group Black Lily, and was murdered there. Anger, grief and guilt drive Keegan to flush out 27, a former actor who switches identities with ease. Diehl cleverly integrates chunks of history--the Depression, Hitler's rise to power, Dillinger's bank robberies--into his plot. Despite some improbable coincidences, his solidly researched tale is suspenseful, ingenious and, in places, deeply moving...

Kristen Pfaff , best known as the bass guitarist for alternative rock band Hole from 1993 to 1994.
Around 9:30am on June 16, 1994, Pfaff was found dead in her apartment by Paul Erickson, a friend with whom she had planned to leave for Minneapolis that day. On the floor there was a bag containing syringes and drug paraphernalia. Pfaff's death was attributed to "acute opiate intoxication," and ruled accidental.
Her father, Norman Pfaff, described her as “bright, personable, wonderful...very, very talented, smart, and she always seemed to be in control of her circumstances. Last night she wasn't.”
In the book Love & Death, released April 2004, Kristen Pfaff's mother, Janet Pfaff, states she has never accepted the official story regarding her daughter's death. Janet was interviewed by authors Wallace and Halperin in August 2003.
Kristen Pfaff was buried in Section 6, Lot 45 of Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo, New York.

Courtney Love loses rights to Kurt Cobain's image
Income from late Nirvana singer's name and likeness pass from widow to daughter, Frances Bean, in exchange for $2.75m loan

Courtney Love is no longer the keeper of Kurt Cobain's public image, according to a report. Publicity rights for the late Nirvana singer's estate are reported to have passed from his widow to his 19-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
In 2010, Love apparently stepped down as manager of the company that administers Cobain's publicity rights, including rights to his name and likeness. According to documents obtained by the Fix, an online magazine dealing with addiction and recovery issues, Love ceded her role at The End of Music in exchange for a $2.75m (£1.7m) loan from her daughter's trust fund. Until the loan is repaid, Love is not entitled to income from any new deals relating to Cobain's image.
Frances Cobain broke with Love in 2009, when her aunt and a paternal grandmother were named her new legal guardians. She turned 18 in August 2010, taking ownership of most or all of her trust fund. She and her mother are now apparently locked in a battle over a collection of Cobain's belongings, including musical equipment, clothing and several of the singer's paintings. But rights to Nirvana's music seems to have nothing to do with either of them: administrative rights for Cobain's songs are overseen by a company called Primary Wave Music, and Primary Wave's Larry Mestel also owns 50% of the publishing rights. He would have made the decision to license Smells Like Teen Spirit to the new Muppets movie.
Despite frequently ranting about her daughter online, Love recently apologised to her on Twitter. "Bean, sorry I believed the gossip," she wrote. "Mommy loves you."

Zipporah Levinson, Department of Mathematics’ ‘den mother,’ dies at age 93
The wife of the late Institute Professor Norman Levinson opened her home to many of the department’s mathematicians
Zipporah “Fagi” Levinson, the wife of the late Institute Professor Norman Levinson ’34, SM ’34, SCD ’35, died on Dec. 11, 2009, at the age of 93 after numerous strokes and pneumonia.
In the book Recountings: Conversations with MIT Mathematicians, editor Joel Segel described Levinson as “the unquestioned ‘den mother’” for decades to the likes of Norbert Weiner and John Nash,” and “a vibrant and irreplaceable part of the Mathematics Department’s institutional memory and perhaps the person best qualified to put a human face on the period when the department was coming into its own as a full-fledged research entity.”
Levinson was particularly effective as the moral and social historian of the department, and was frequently called upon to remind them of the Institute’s history, including its anti-Semitism and sexism, and how it had overcome them.
Levinson was born in 1916 in what she described as a tough Jewish ghetto in Brooklyn, the daughter of a dentist and dental technician. She was educated at City College of New York and was awarded her masters in education by Columbia. In 1938 she met Norman Levinson, who was then a young instructor in the MIT Department of Mathematics, and he proposed to her two days later. They married after knowing each other for only a week, and the department acknowledged the wedding by presenting her with a copy of Calculus Made Easy, signed by all members of the faculty.
Levinson often opened up her house to other mathematicians, providing a congenial and supportive environment, which was greatly appreciated by the rapidly expanding department. After her husband became head of the department and an Institute Professor, Fagi continued to act as the department’s social glue. After his death in 1975, she remained an active participant in the social life of several generations of the department, ultimately becoming the department’s oral historian.
She spent the last nine years of her life at Lasell Village in Newton. Until shortly before her death she stayed in touch with numerous friends from the mathematical world. She is survived by two daughters, Sylvia and Joan (Zorza) ’62, four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Donations may be made to MIT noting they are in memory of Fagi Levinson (and/or Norman Levinson) and sent to Bonny Kellermann, MIT director of memorial gifts, 600 Memorial Drive, Room W98-516, Cambridge, MA 02139. Donations will fund opportunities for undergraduate research in applied mathematics.
