WikiLeaks Vows To Drop 9/11 Bombshell

Wikileaks hints at dropping 9/11 bombshell

WikiLeaks has released a series of cryptic tweets hinting that they are about to release bombshell information about the 9/11 terror attacks. 

In the latest in a series of #Vault7 tweets, WikiLeaks have indicated that they have information about the suspicious way in which the World Trade Center buildings collapsed on September 11th.

 

Heavy.com reports:

 

Starting February 4 and ending early Monday morning, WikiLeaks shared a series of strange tweets about #Vault7. The first is pictured above.

The tweet features a photo of the Svalbard Seed Vault. You can watch a video about it below:

The seed vault is on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen in a remote Arctic archipelago. The vault was started by Cary Fowler and the Consultative Group on International Agriculture Research to preserve plant seeds and make sure there are always spare copies of seeds around the world, in case of a global or regional crisis. The facility’s managed by the Nordic Genetic Resource Center, but there are no permanent staff at the facility. The permafrost and lack of tectonic activity make this a good location for a seed vault.

What you see above the entrance to the vault, in the photo, is an illuminated public artwork. It was made by Dyveke Sanne and is called “Perpetual Repercussion.” Interestingly, Norwary requires that government-funded works that exceed a certain amount must include artwork.

The Second WikiLeaks Tweet, ‘Where Is #Vault7?,’ Featured a Photo of a Nazi Gold Mine

 

The second tweet is pictured above. It asked “Where is #Vault7?” The photo in the tweet shows Nazi gold stored in Merkers Salt Mine (it’s referenced in this Wikipedia article.) The gold at Merkers was discovered when the U.S. Army took Merkers in 1945 during World War II. Two French women had reported that the Kaiseroda salt mine had gold stored by Germans, which was how the U.S. Army first discovered it. According to the National Archives, the mine contained gold bullion, gold Reichsmarks, British gold pounds, French gold francs, American gold pieces, gold and silver coins, additional foreign currency, silver bars, platinum bars, artwork, and more.

Nazi gold was allegedly transferred by Nazi Germany to overseas banks during World War II, as part of a strategy involving looting victims’ assets to fund the war. Authors and conspiracy theorists have long guessed about what happened to the Nazi gold that disappeared. In fact, a group of Holocaust survivors even brought a civil suit against the Vatican Bank over it, filed in November 1999. The case was dismissed in 2003, but then reinstated in part in 2005. Various parts of the case were dismissed again in 2007-2009. The Nazi gold has been the subject of conspiracy theories for a long time.

The Third WikiLeaks Tweet, ‘When Is #Vault7?,’ Shows a Jet Engine Testing Room

 

The final tweet in the series, as of the time of publication, asked “When Is #Vault7?” The photo in the tweet was from 2010, taken at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia, while running a test on a Pratt and Whitney F119-PW-100 jet engine. The jet inspections look for any objects that could damage blades inside the engines. The article that the picture is from talks about soundproof hush houses that are used for jet engine testing. These are sometimes called “vaults.”

The Fourth Tweet Reads: “Who Is #Vault7?”

The fourth tweet in the group simply read “Who Is #Vault7?,” with a photo of Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning, Julian Assange, and Edward Snowden:

 

In case you’re wondering where these photos came from, they are part of a series of spy posters created by the U.S. government. Each poster contains a head shot, year of birth, bio, and a paragraph about their alleged crimes as part of an Espionage Series. You can see all of the posters in the series at the Center for Development of Security Excellence’s website. Beneath Snowden’s photo the poster reads: “Spilled the Beans and Ran.” Beneath Assange’s it reads: “The Hack Behind WikiLeaks.” Beneath Manning’s it reads: “Leaked the Largest Cache of Classifieds.”

The Fifth Tweet Reads, “Why Is #Vault7?,” And Features Someone Welding a Box Blade

 

The fifth tweet, released on February 8, read: “Why is #Vault7?” The image appears to be of someone welding something. A reverse image search reveals this to be from an article posted by Whiteman Air Force Base. The caption of the photo reads: “Staff Sgt. Adam Boyd, 509th Civil Engineer Squadron structural supervisor, welds a box blade for a snow plow, Feb. 27. Structures Airmen perform jobs such as this one to save the Air Force from having to possibly spend money on parts made by civilian companies.” This photo will likely feed more theories that these tweets are about 9/11. However, the article also talks about vault doors (albeit briefly) and about how the government spends its money. Interestingly, this is the second photo in the series that isn’t explicitly of a vault.

Theories About Vault 7 Range from 9/11 to Hillary Clinton to Shadow Governments

There are quite a few theories circulating about what these #Vault7 tweets could mean. Some people were getting worried and wondered out loud if WikiLeaks knew something that they didn’t.

 

Here are some of the theories:

Clinton Emails

One theory points out that the FBI recently released part 6 of 6 from Hillary Clinton’s email investigation. This theory proposes that the tweets are a reference to deleted emails that the FBI will never be able to release. The FBI’s Vault releases on Clinton can be viewed here. These deleted emails would have, theoretically, been released as Vault 7. Others believe WikiLeaks is hinting about a new Clinton email batch that they plan to release themselves.

9/11 Conspiracy Theories

Others are holding to a theory that these tweets are about an upcoming 9/11 leak. In the third tweet, the engine was an F119, and these theorists point out that 119 backwards is 911. They also reference Building 7, which has been the source of many 9/11 conspiracy theories, including a conspiracy theory that there was a “vault of gold” beneath the building. (This conspiracy theory is often incorrectly ascribed to Building 7, but it’s actually about Building 6.) It seems like a bit of a stretch, since WikiLeaks has not made any indications of an upcoming 9/11 leak. A more likely explanation is that the photo was chosen because jet engine was being tested in a room sometimes called a “vault.”

The fifth tweet features a photo of someone welding, which some believe is a reference to a conspiracy theory about an angled cut on a World Trade Center beam. The “box blade” he’s welding, some say, might also be a reference to box cutters used on 9/11.

Government Spending or Military Involvement

A new theory, derived from the fifth tweet, is that WikLeaks is going to release something related to government spending or military projects. The fifth tweet referenced a photo from Whiteman Air Force Base, which talked about government spending. In addition, the host unit for the base is the 509th Bomb Wing, which operates the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber. Whiteman is the only permanent base for the B-2. B-2 bombers were used in October 2001 in Afghanistan.

More Theories About the Number 7

Others are taking this even farther and finding any connection they can to the number seven. In several WikiLeaks Reddit discussions, some have said that it might be a reference to the next mass extinction event following the sixth, which some scientists say we are already in the middle of. This theory is connected to the first tweet, which showed the seed vault, and proposes that #Vault7 has something to do with climate change.

Then there’s the “shadow government” theory connected to the number seven. CNBC reported in October that a new FBI release featured claims of a “shadow government” composed of high-ranking state officials, whom some referred to as “The 7th Floor Group.”

References to a Vault 7

Here are some other past references to Vault 7, not connected to WikiLeaks:

  • The Fallout game has many numbered vaults, including a Vault 7 in the Nuka Break fan series. It’s described as a Vault-Tech vault built before the Great War, as part of the Great Vault experiment. It was intended to show how long society could last without medical aid or personnel.
  • Canadian military research papers from 1984 and 1985 reference a “Vault 7” in discussions on Mustard Hydrolysate here and here.

More Tweets Likely to Come

It remains to be seen which of these theories about Vault 7 — if any — will end up being correct. There’s also a chance that the pictures might not provide any clues at all, and WikiLeaks might simply be showing pictures of well-known vaults to go with its tweets about #Vault7. If WikiLeaks is referencing the 5 W’s (& one H) of journalism (Who, What, Where, When, Why & How), then more mysterious tweets will likely be coming soon. We had previously predicted that “Why is #Vault7?” could be the next one. If WikiLeaks uses the “H” of the 5W’s (which not everyone uses), then “How Is #Vault7?” could be tweeted tomorrow, since it is the only one in the series left.

TV host Stephen Colbert took orders from Clinton Foundation

stephen-colbert

by Dr. Eowyn

We already know that the MSM, including the major TV news networks, are blatantly biased in favor of Democrats and against conservatives.

But it’s not just TV news. Studies show that Americans, especially millennials, increasingly get their news from late night TV talk shows.

What if I were to tell you that a major comedian-actor who made his reputation on Comedy Central’s popular news-parody series The Daily Show and now hosts the CBS Late Show, actually took direct orders from the Clinton Foundation?

That would be Stephen Colbert who joined The Daily Show in 1997, then had his own spun-off series The Colbert Report for 9 years, from 2005 to December 2014 when he left Comedy Central to succeed David Letterman as the host of CBS’s The Late Show.

craig-minassian

On April 10, 2013, Craig Minassian, Chief Communications Officer of the Clinton Foundation, sent an email to John Podesta to bring attention to two special episdoes of The Colbert Report that he, Minassian, “had them do”:

John,

I hope you got a chance to see the The Colbert Report’s two special episodes i had them do about CGI U that we taped in St. Louis this weekend. This is the link to last nights with a sketch about commitments and the monologue and WJC interview aired Monday. Hope you enjoy and looking forward to your feedback. Next will be your Colbert appearance!

-Craig

Note:

  • John Podesta is a powerful, longtime Democratic Party operative whose political offices include: Chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign;Counselor to President Barack Obama (2014-2015); President Bill Clinton’s White House Chief of Staff (1998-2001).
  • CGI = one of the programs of the Clinton Foundation.
  • CGI U = the expansion of the Clinton Global Initiative model to to students, universities, and national youth organizations.
  • WJC = William Jefferson Clinton

Tom Brady under malicious attack by chemical shills for following an ultra-clean organic diet that avoids MSG and sugar

Image: Tom Brady under malicious attack by chemical shills for following an ultra-clean organic diet that avoids MSG and sugar

(Natural News) Tom Brady is no stranger to controversy. He’s come under fire in the world of sports before, such as during the “Deflategate” scandal not too long ago. Now, it seems Brady is being attacked for his own personal eating habits. The football star reportedly adheres to a strict diet that focuses on organic produce, whole grains, and lean meats. And according to the mainstream media, he is committing some kind of crime for eating that way.

The New York Post recently published an article that heavily scrutinized Brady’s diet. You see, in 2014, Brady committed the faux pas of explaining his diet to Sports Illustrated and attributing the way he eats to his success and longevity in football. The 39-year-old currently boasts one of the longest and most successful careers in the NFL; it is no surprise that the man reports nutrition is one of the keys to his accomplishments.

But in the fast food nation, nutrition is a four-letter word.

Brady gets bashed for following healthy diet

When describing his diet to Sports Illustrated, Brady said it was “80 percent alkaline and 20 percent acidic,” and noted that this combination helped to “maintain balance and harmony through [his] metabolic system.”

Brady’s personal chef, Allen Campbell, has described the diet in greater detail, noting that he only uses organic ingredients. Campbell says Brady doesn’t touch white sugar, white flour, or nightshade vegetables — which means no tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers, and even some berries. Brady also abstains from other ingredients like MSG, iodized salt, coffee, fungi, and dairy products. He uses olive oil for cold foods, and cooks with coconut oil.

It’s a pretty intense diet, but then again, Brady is an intense athlete. As the football star has said, “I don’t believe you could be a 39-year-old quarterback in the NFL and eat cheeseburgers every day.”

The Post however seems to think that Brady’s diet couldn’t possibly be as healthy as he claims. They claim that his adherence to an alkaline diet is “baffling.” They spoke with a New York-based registered dietitian named Lauren Harris-Pincus who also said that the science behind his diet was “sketchy.” Other professionals claim that his diet is based on “half-truths” and “myths,” but who is really perpetuating falsehoods, here? [RELATED: Learn more about propaganda in science at FakeScience.news]

Science is actually on Brady’s side

Interestingly enough, there is actually quite a bit of evidence to suggest that yes, eating an alkaline diet and abstaining from toxic ingredients or nightshade vegetables can provide health benefits.

For example, nightshade veggies contain solanine — which has been shown to increase joint swelling and inflammation — something you definitely don’t want to have as a professional athlete. In animal models, increased solanine consumption resulted in higher levels of arthritic biomarkers and pain, and caused joint swelling. Other research also notes that nightshade vegetables contain other cholinesterase-inhibiting glycoalkaloids and steroids. Solanine is one of these compounds, as is the tomatine in tomatoes.

The researchers state, “When these inhibitors accumulate in the body, alone or with other cholinesterase inhibitors such as caffeine or food impurities containing systemic cholinesterase inhibiting pesticides, the result may be a paralytic-like muscle spasm, aches, pains, tenderness, inflammation, and stiff body movements.”

Nightshades do not have negative effects on everyone, but in some people, they do seem to create problems relating to pain and inflammation. It stands to reason that someone who is sensitive to nightshades would abstain from them, given their potential to cause these issues.

As for the alkaline diet, well there’s some good research on that, too. In 2012, researchers found that following an alkaline diet was associated with a greater index of skeletal muscle mass in women. It is quite possible that the same holds true for men.

More recently, a study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism found that “a more alkaline dietary pattern may be beneficial for overall health, as dietary induced acidosis has been associated with greater risk of cardiovascular disease and bone disease.” The research was conducted by the Nutrition and Foods division of the  School of Family and Consumer Sciences at Texas State University.

And of course, MSG is known to cause a number of adverse health effects like migraines and upset stomachs; it’s also proven to cause muscle tightness in sensitive people. Sugar fares no better; it’s been linked to a myriad of health conditions and is a known contributor to a variety of diseases. No wonder Brady abstains from these toxic ingredients.

To put it simply, Brady follows an extremely healthy diet to maximize his performance and longevity — and its a diet that is based on real science.
