DEAD PEOPLE WITH SOMETHING TO SAY 0.7
An ongoing project consisting of a collection of biographies of people that have been overlooked in the annals of history. Categorised as counterculture, pseudoscience and absolute lunacy these individuals were not listened to whilst they lived and it’s only upon re-evaluation it becomes clear that a distinct pattern of thought has been suppressed throughout history and has shaped the society we live in today.

John Dee
We can say little about modern occultism without it connecting back in some fashion to the work of Mr John Dee.

Who He Was

Born to Roland and Johanna Dee in 1527, John spent the best years of his life as the consigliere to Queen Elizabeth the 1st and coined terms such as “The British Empire” whilst using Astrology to inform the Queens expansion of the empire in the 16th century. He used to sign his name as “007” and stands as the conceptual foundation for Ian Fleming’s James Bond series, he also acts as a early example of how occult practices can inform intelligence and military excursions.
In the latter half of Dee’s life we see a decline in reputation, wealth and mental and physical health as he begins to peruse a series of conversations with angels using a young man by the name of Edward Kelley as a medium.
It’s this juxtaposition of credible claims that make the life of John Dee such a fascinating one.
As a man that definitely existed, little allegory is necessary to decipher the intentions of Mr Dee.
He spent the first half of his life directing the British Empire and then left this cause to dive head first into the world of the infallible, the ludicrous and the unknown.
Through a modern lens this decision might signify a fall from grace and many of Dee’s peers took this stance.
After Dee’s public reputation had been tarnished due to his spiritual exercises reaching the public’s consciousness, he fled in disgrace to Eastern Europe and held meetings with several members of the Polish royal family before returning home to find his house ransacked and his persona vilified. Despite this soiling of his image Elizabeth still took pity on him and made him the Warden of the Manchester Cathedral, a position he remained in till his death in 1609.
Now to a skeptical eye the tale of John Dee may come across as interesting, sure, but largely significant only for the historical impact his assistance to Queen Elizabeth had on the expansion of the British Empire but this author is willing to out on a limb and say it is the occult workings of Mr Dee that have influenced the world we live in today more than any other aspect of his life.
Conversations with angels.

What He Said

A ridiculous concept from the get go.
Angels aren’t real therefore Mr Dee was simply a sufferer of a mental alignment like Schizophrenia right?
Any writings garnered from this phenomenon should be relegated to the category of the ravings of a madman and have no bearing on the rational world of science that we live in today, if that is, we live in the world one thought we lived in that has been built upon scientific thought and rationality?
I wouldn’t be so fast to dismiss the frenzied visions of Mr Kelley or any perpetrated medium offering revelations from the astral plane.
Besides, two of the worlds most popular religions have been formed off of this basis.
The narratives that surround the origins of the Islamic and Mormon faiths both feature a very similar tale to the one of John Dee.
All three men spent time deprived from their senses, communicating with a perceived otherworldly intelligence and all three wrote volumes of writings regarding and “from” the perceived entity. Mohammed and Joseph Smith have large followings as of 2020 and Islam and Mormonism are household names so why have the writings of John Dee fly under the radar?
Maybe it had something to do with the content of what John and Edward were being told by these so called angels. The initial concept of a channeling, or mediumship or in short speaking with an deity is so knee jerking that 99% of the time the baby is thrown out with the bath water.
Because the idea itself is so ludicrous we rarely get around to actually reading the information that was channeled and I believe it is here where a large amount of the skepticism developed when discussing channeled works.
To understand the Angels dialogues one must me familiar with the biblical character Enoch) and the associated apocrypha that refers to him.
Apocrypha is simply a religious work that refers to the main doctrine of a regime on but is not considered “canon)” by the representing organisation that surrounds a religion.
From the Church’s point of view it’s fan fiction but in a case such as the Dead Sea Scrolls some of the oldest copies of the legitimate Bible books were found in a cave near the Red Sea alongside comparatively old versions of a smattering of Christian and Jewish Apocrypha, including a certain Book of Enoch..
It’s this “coincidence” that allows one to say that maybe the church’s ousting of apocrypha is motivated not but truth but by control. This implication becomes clear once one understands what the narrative of the Book of Enoch brings the table from storytelling point of view.
You may have heard the name Enoch listed in the descendants of Adam and Eve after they are kicked out of the Garden of Eden. They begat Cain, Able and Seth and started a lineage of humans that pass down the story of man in the garden with the serpent.
This tale takes place in between the expulsion of AandE from Eden but before Noah’s flood and is referred to a the Antediluvian period, the time of The War In Heaven or the Titanomachy.
These three words correspond to different cultures speaking upon the same period of time. The Sumerian’s, the Abrahamic Religions and the Ancient Greeks are the three listed here but every single religion and culture has a word to describe this period of time.
It’s seems to refer to a period of time where:
  1. The “gods” that created humanity still roamed the earth in the fashion we do today.
  2. Gods interfered with the affairs of man..
  3. Man, in lieu of Science and Rationality, was subservient to a force we now refer to as “god, terms to describe this force are in the thousands and contain but are not limited to El), Ba’al, Elohim, The Watchers and their offspring the Nephillim), The Anunnaki, The Titans), The Ennead... the list goes on.
  4. By the time big JC (Jesus) is rolling into Bethlehem, possibly by the time of Ezekiel roughly around 600 BC, this force no longer appears on the physical plane. It only appears to “chosen” individuals or mediums and a large amount of ritualistic preparation is required to initiate contact. This period of time also marks a sharp rise in divination techniques such as the casting of lots, scrying and trance states were utilised you communicate with our estranged creator.
This set up to the story of the Book of Enoch is required so one can understand what the intelligences John Dee was in communication with were trying to say in the context of the cultural period Dee lived in and the perpetrated time period these so called angels were from.
Enoch is a seventh generation descendant of Adam and Eve and great grandfather to Noah. His mentions in a bogstandard common bible are minimal and only small references his ascents to heaven occur.
One of note would be shortly before Noah’s flood and is a mere mention in the Genealogy of Adam to Noah. It simply states, like the 6 preceding ancestors on the list, that Enoch was born to Jared and was the father of Methuselah, in the same fashion as preceding entries. Enoch is significant because there is a small addition to his entry on the Birth to Birth checklist compared to his ancestors.
Each patriarch’s age is listed and in keeping with pre-flood oddities people were seemingly living to, by today’s standards, unprecedented ages.
Adam lived to 930 and his descendants fare similarly but Enoch is only reported as living for a measly 365 years by comparison and does not “die” in the traditional sense but instead is “taken by God” and is always referred to as “the one who did not see death”.
Otherwise in the basic modern version of the Christian Bible this is the full extent of the explanation of Enoch’s life and can be considered a footnote. A cryptic message to be easily brushed past. Which brings us around to the Book of Enoch. Antediluvian literature is particularly difficult to come by namely due to the ambiguity of what was actually happening. Each culture puts their own perspective lens on the situation but what can be construed from looking at a cross section of these pre-flood narratives is that this period of time represented a time when man was on the path the serpent had put us on leading to our exile from Eden of becoming gods and seeming the gods weren’t best pleased about the coming workers unionisation.
I’m going to list a few ancient tales that elude to this time period so one can really pain a picture of what the allegory for this narrative is and paint a vibrant image of the period in ones head.
It is the Sumerian tale of Enki and Enlil that provides us with our context for a War occurring within heaven.
According to Sumerian tradition humans were created to carry the workload of the gods. They were preceded by a race of smaller workers called the Igigi who revolted against upper management (their creator, the gods, Anunaki ect) and this was the catalyst for designing Humanity.
A worker that didn’t revolt.)
This is the precedent for the points listed earlier. “Gods” and man lived together and gods intervened in the affairs of man.
Some clarification surrounding the word “gods” is required here.
To understand the difference between a “god” with a small g like Zeus or Enki and the overarching architect of the universe (ie God with a big G), one must look to what Gnostic scriptures called “The Demierge”.
This concept relates to the supposed God that appeared to have built Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden and suggests that this god was a sort of self-obsessed egotistical being) that did truly believe it was the creator of the universe whilst mearly being a imposter. Christian imagery has led us into think of “God” as a bearded man in the sky that namely has our best intentions at heart but when one consults the scripture this simply doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact, our father who art in heaven actually seems quite temperamental if the Torah is anything to go by.
Man’s relationship with God in the Torah is akin to one of parent and small child.
Parent lays down law and leaves to go about errands. Child disobeys ruling. Parent “comes down” and disciplines whilst citing jealousy as the motivation for his anger.
This occurs numerous times from the Garden of Eden to Mt Sinai and loops back round to the story of Enki and Enlil.
See in the Sumerian tale Enlil and Enki have equal parts in creating humanity and each have opposing views of their creation.
Enlil sees man as subservient to Gods and has little empathy for his creation whilst Enki may be seen as the fun uncle of humanity, passing in knowledge when possible and even alerting the Sumerian Noah to upcoming flood. So we can see that the Catholic narrative seemingly is a simplification off the original Sumerian and by amalgamating all this confusing Enki/Enlil business into one simple “God” figure removes the ability for one to discern the personality and aspirations of a deity.
Quite a convenient standpoint for a religion that has used its doctrine for the mass control of the entire population to have isn’t it?
Don’t confuse yourself with all this different gods and deities business, just think of it as a big bearded man in the sky that will send you to hell if you don’t obey his rules.
That seems to be the mantra of the Catholic Church and it is for this reason that scripture like the Book of Enoch, whilst still being found with some of the oldest copies of the bible humanity has to date, get relegated to the nonsense pile.
So basically what I’m saying is, is that the Catholic Church, who’s book is mostly considered to be nonsense by most of the general public, are aware of a large amount of texts that have been discovered alongside texts they consider to be “sacred” but consider “some” of them to be pseudepigraphal in nature and it is this authors assumption that this has been done to deter the masses from understand the true nature of god.
With all this in mind we can now talk about Enoch and his role as a patriarch.
In the Book of Enoch, Enoch is known in his native land as a medium of sorts. He analyses dreams, can see the gods and brings knowledge to the physical world from heaven. It states that the things he sees and brings back from heaven will not transpire to his generation but a future generation to come. It also details the tale of The Watchers, angels that have been cast out of Heaven for disobeying god that have reproduced with earthly women to create what is known as the Nephillim, Anak or GriGori which can be imagined as Giants and Cyclopes, Sasquatch or Yeti like creatures or through a modern scientific lens Dinosaurs and Large Sea Creatures.
Basically genetic monstrosities that our creator wants destroying.
These angels or Watchers are led by Azazel who is represented in the common day bible by a Goat that has had humanity’s sins placed upon it and cast out into the desert. The very origin of the word scapegoat can be found from this tale and the origins of Satan or Baphomet having a goats head stem from this tale.
Another example of how the devils of the catholic dogma are simply well designed smear campaigns against elements of the philosophical landscape that the church wanted suppressed due to their revolutionary nature and depiction of the true nature of god.
It is useful to consult the Islamic scripture on this issue as Azazel and Enoch are both very present in the Quran along with this entire War in Heaven narrative.
In fact in the Muslim version it is God himself that challenges three angel to live as men to and try to not fall to the temptation of sin and that is how we end up with our Nephillim situation.
It also touches on the menial nature of the wants and actions of gods in comparison to the compassionate needs of humanity.
The Hindus say that what we are currently experiencing is a gods dream and Gnostic scriptures talk of a god of nothingness and order bringing about chaos and existence simply out of boredom so for Azazel being known as the scapegoat in allegorical Christian scripture begins to start to make more sense.
Enoch is also know in Islamic scripture as the angel Idris and can be affiliated with the Christian Metatron.
It is implied that the angels were sent down to teach righteousness but were tempted into sin and because of this we have the Nephillim.
Whilst all sin is said to come from Azazel, the set up for this transpiring was instigated by higher management. Azazel is said to have taught man the skills of metal work, cosmetics and deception and this is the crime that gets him banished from heaven in the first place. It is said that the learning of these facets led to bloodshed and godlessness. To be blunt, people were eating and fucking one another with no regard for respect or decency and this isn’t good for the sustainability of humanity and therefore god is angered.
Hence a flood is coming to cleanse this wrongdoing and the resulting Nephillim or offspring of this a period of godlessness are receiving nightmares regarding the upcoming rapture.
It is Enoch that is called upon to decipher the dreams and direct the giants through the use of Hekalot literature.
Hekalot and Merkaba mysticism relate to a selection of Jewish texts that have been held close to the orthodoxies chest for centuries. Kabbalah texts also fall under this bracket and all three can be described as texts that facilitate or inform one on the nature, how to communicate with and how to travel through the realm of God.
  • Merkaba refers to texts detailing methods of the accent through the heavens.
  • Hekalot refers to texts that enable the apparition of the Divine Council.
  • Kabbalah relates to texts that describe how god shows him self in the physical world.
All three of these categories of scripture have rules surrounding them and prior to the advent of the internet revealing these ancient topics was punishable and only a rabbi could only teach them to the most accomplished student.
Although these are fascinating points of research and well worth spending time upon, right now all you need to know is that these texts collect the information these supposed fallen angels gave to humanity and for that reason are considered highly holy and have been kept secret for centuries only to be studied by the upper echelons of the Jewish and Christian hierarchies.
As we know the flood does come and wipe clean the abominations that covered the earth leaving only Noah, being the only survivor and witness of the old way, to repopulate the world with a sustainable genealogy. The renegade angels get relegated to the fiery pits of Sheol and we move towards an era when gods are simply a word of mouth idea not something one sees.
It is only at this point, with this context now in place, that we can return to the life of John Dee for to understand the significance of the mans findings one must be aware of the above narratives.
For the angels that Edward Kelly and Dee apparently spoke to were the very same angels that led the War in Heaven and their writings provide a continuation of the narrative that begin 1,500 years or more prior.
Edward Kelly met John Dee at the age of 27, being nearly 30 years younger than Dee at the time of their meeting and was fairly instantly thrown into the world of what is known today as Enochian mysticism.
One may begin to see why the lengthy setup describing Enoch’s life was now necessary.
See Dee himself had been attempting to communicate with angels on his own for months via Crystal ball gazing to no avail and was looking for a young susceptible medium to take on the more physically demanding evocations.
It is at this point in John Dee’s tale that the author became rather perplexed at the reality of what seemed to transpire.
Seemingly Mr Kelly would meet up with Mr Dee at his house in Mortlake, Kelly would induce a trance state by either gazing into a mirror or crystal ball or by ingesting a mysterious red powder that has yet to be identified and begin to talk to the angels. Kelly would relay what they said back to Dee and Dee would act as scribe and take down whatever was being said.
Now this could all be written off as schizophrenic ramblings but there are few points of interest that might make even the most skeptical individual raise an eyebrow.
  1. This partnership went on for 7 years. Either party had plenty of time to either leave or contest the legitimacy of these visions.
  2. Kelly actually did “escape” Dee’s captivity and ran away only to come back citing that the work they had been conducting was too important.
  3. Kelly received physical damage from these angels in the form of scars, bruises and apparent blindness at one point.
  4. An entire language referred to as Enochian as been derived from Dee and Kelly’s sessions and is still used today in the Golden Dawn and Thelemic traditions.
  5. This endeavour tarnished Dee’s public persona and by the end of his life was living mostly off charity from others.
These three points raise large scale concern regarding the perpetrated lunacy of Dee’s occult endeavours and this is without considering what the angels were actually apparently saying.
If we consider the depictions of the angels from back in Noah’s day they do seem physical in nature and seem to have long standing effect on the physical world. Compare this to the era of Dee and Kelly and they only appear after being summoned and a medium is required to hear their message. Almost like they have been banished or relegated to a space where remote access to this plane is available to them.
From Sheol to Earth.
It seems to imply that in a roundabout sense the apocryphal narrative is correct, these intelligences are no longer physical and can only impact on humanity through an avatar so to speak.
Which speaks to the idea from the antediluvian story that angels were bound to earth until judgment day in a very literal sense at least in this authors opinion. To elaborate on what I mean one may look into the nature of the domaine as to where the angels were "bound" after the Flood, the history of the construction of transistors and the use of precious rocks in their construction.
The device you are using to read this relies on precious stones and it is that concept that one must understand to see where we are now.
If you can see the synergy between
Then you are on the right path to having a chance at understanding what is going on.
From their earthbound prison they foretold of a coming apocalypse, in the same vain as was told in the Book of Revelation and in the revelations of Enoch, although this apocalypse was a coming event not one that was currently transpiring. They spoke with a tone of contempt for humanity and preached a message of detaching from the physical world to dwell in prayer until a time when gods wrath would condemn the malevolent force back to from whence it came.
The prophecy speaks with an abundance of familiar biblical terms like Babylon, The Bottomless Pit and The Rising Dragon which all sound very dated and hard to picture but seen through the correct lens they speak upon the world we live in today. Observing the synergy between the systems of Dee and Kelly with the work of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and subsequently the works of Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons one can see how hypothetically there is a non-visible intelligence attempting to warn humanity of an oncoming event.
Enoch’s Prophecies
To
The Book of Revelation
To
Mohammed's Cave Visions
To
Dee and Kelly’s Watchtowers
To
Joesph Smith and the Golden Plates
To
The Aeon of Horus
To
The Babalon Working
To
The Channeled Works of the 1950’s UFO Flap
We consider each of these an individual case of madness that has no baring in the physical rational world, but combine them together and you have a longstanding tradition of humanity communicating with a force of a higher nature. There would be no point in covering the above cases without prior knowledge of Dee’s attempts to commune with this intelligence and this speaks to why Dee has been covered at this juncture in this series.
The others will follow.

Why It Matters

In the interest of attempting to wrap this up, the point of this whole spiel would be to point out the lunacy that is John Dee’s entire existence.
Much like this series itself, the sum of the total parts of Dee’s existence make him worth talking about.
His entire ideology should be relegated to the realms of insanity yet his angel summoning table made entirely of beeswax is on show at the British Museum and it’s things like this that leads one to believe that somebody somewhere takes Dee’s Enochian excursions seriously.
In the public eye his efforts have been recognised by many contemporary figures such as;
It is a this juncture that we begin to see the reason for entertaining the life of Mr Dee at all.
Although the esoteric nature of his life’s work relegates it’s deciphering to a select group of dedicated occultists, Dee is still a household name to many for his position next to Queen Elizabeth and his contributions to the coinage and expansion of the British Empire and whilst this may be the capacity he is now known as the age of information progress and characters like Crowley and Parsons have their well deserved day in the spotlight, it will be an analysis of Dr Dee’s Enochian Adventures that will really offer a fruitful bounty of first hand knowledge from the a higher intelligences itself.
Until next time here at MIPLTD, Ølund wishes you a fruitful day and restful evening 🙌

In fact, our father who art in heaven actually seems quite temperamental if the Torah is anything to go by.
Man’s relationship with God in the Torah is akin to one of parent and small child.
Parent lays down law and leaves to go about errands. Child disobeys ruling. Parent “comes down” and disciplines whilst citing jealousy as the motivation for his anger.
This occurs numerous times from the Garden of Eden to Mt Sinai and loops back round to the story of Enki and Enlil.
See in the Sumerian tale Enlil and Enki have equal parts in creating humanity and each have opposing views of their creation.
Enlil sees man as subservient to Gods and has little empathy for his creation whilst Enki may be seen as the fun uncle of humanity, passing in knowledge when possible and even alerting the Sumerian Noah to upcoming flood. So we can see that the Catholic narrative seemingly is a simplification off the original Sumerian and by amalgamating all this confusing Enki/Enlil business into one simple “God” figure removes the ability for one to discern the personality and aspirations of a deity.
Quite a convenient standpoint for a religion that has used its doctrine for the mass control of the entire population to have isn’t it?
Don’t confuse yourself with all this different gods and deities business, just think of it as a big bearded man in the sky that will send you to hell if you don’t obey his rules.
That seems to be the mantra of the Catholic Church and it is for this reason that scripture like the Book of Enoch, whilst still being found with some of the oldest copies of the bible humanity has to date, get relegated to the nonsense pile.
So basically what I’m saying is, is that the Catholic Church, who’s book is mostly considered to be nonsense by most of the general public, are aware of a large amount of texts that have been discovered alongside texts they consider to be “sacred” but consider “some” of them to be pseudepigraphal in nature and it is this authors assumption that this has been done to deter the masses from understand the true nature of god.
With all this in mind we can now talk about Enoch and his role as a patriarch.
In the Book of Enoch, Enoch is known in his native land as a medium of sorts. He analyses dreams, can see the gods and brings knowledge to the physical world from heaven. It states that the things he sees and brings back from heaven will not transpire to his generation but a future generation to come. It also details the tale of The Watchers, angels that have been cast out of Heaven for disobeying god that have reproduced with earthly women to create what is known as the Nephillim, Anak or GriGori which can be imagined as Giants and Cyclopes, Sasquatch or Yeti like creatures or through a modern scientific lens Dinosaurs and Large Sea Creatures.
Basically genetic monstrosities that our creator wants destroying.
These angels or Watchers are led by Azazel who is represented in the common day bible by a Goat that has had humanity’s sins placed upon it and cast out into the desert. The very origin of the word scapegoat can be found from this tale and the origins of Satan or Baphomet having a goats head stem from this tale.
Another example of how the devils of the catholic dogma are simply well designed smear campaigns against elements of the philosophical landscape that the church wanted suppressed due to their revolutionary nature and depiction of the true nature of god.
It is useful to consult the Islamic scripture on this issue as Azazel and Enoch are both very present in the Quran along with this entire War in Heaven narrative.
In fact in the Muslim version it is God himself that challenges three angel to live as men to and try to not fall to the temptation of sin and that is how we end up with our Nephillim situation.
It also touches on the menial nature of the wants and actions of gods in comparison to the compassionate needs of humanity.
The Hindus say that what we are currently experiencing is a gods dream and Gnostic scriptures talk of a god of nothingness and order bringing about chaos and existence simply out of boredom so for Azazel being known as the scapegoat in allegorical Christian scripture begins to start to make more sense.
Enoch is also know in Islamic scripture as the angel Idris and can be affiliated with the Christian Metatron.
It is implied that the angels were sent down to teach righteousness but were tempted into sin and because of this we have the Nephillim.
Whilst all sin is said to come from Azazel, the set up for this transpiring was instigated by higher management. Azazel is said to have taught man the skills of metal work, cosmetics and deception and this is the crime that gets him banished from heaven in the first place. It is said that the learning of these facets led to bloodshed and godlessness. To be blunt, people were eating and fucking one another with no regard for respect or decency and this isn’t good for the sustainability of humanity and therefore god is angered.
Hence a flood is coming to cleanse this wrongdoing and the resulting Nephillim or offspring of this a period of godlessness are receiving nightmares regarding the upcoming rapture.
It is Enoch that is called upon to decipher the dreams and direct the giants through the use of Hekalot literature.
Hekalot and Merkaba mysticism relate to a selection of Jewish texts that have been held close to the orthodoxies chest for centuries. Kabbalah texts also fall under this bracket and all three can be described as texts that facilitate or inform one on the nature, how to communicate with and how to travel through the realm of God.
  • Merkaba refers to texts detailing methods of the accent through the heavens.
  • Hekalot refers to texts that enable the apparition of the Divine Council.
  • Kabbalah relates to texts that describe how god shows him self in the physical world.
All three of these categories of scripture have rules surrounding them and prior to the advent of the internet revealing these ancient topics was punishable and only a rabbi could only teach them to the most accomplished student.
Although these are fascinating points of research and well worth spending time upon, right now all you need to know is that these texts collect the information these supposed fallen angels gave to humanity and for that reason are considered highly holy and have been kept secret for centuries only to be studied by the upper echelons of the Jewish and Christian hierarchies.
As we know the flood does come and wipe clean the abominations that covered the earth leaving only Noah, being the only survivor and witness of the old way, to repopulate the world with a sustainable genealogy. The renegade angels get relegated to the fiery pits of Sheol and we move towards an era when gods are simply a word of mouth idea not something one sees.
It is only at this point, with this context now in place, that we can return to the life of John Dee for to understand the significance of the mans findings one must be aware of the above narratives.
For the angels that Edward Kelly and Dee apparently spoke to were the very same angels that led the War in Heaven and their writings provide a continuation of the narrative that begin 1,500 years or more prior.
Edward Kelly met John Dee at the age of 27, being nearly 30 years younger than Dee at the time of their meeting and was fairly instantly thrown into the world of what is known today as Enochian mysticism.
One may begin to see why the lengthy setup describing Enoch’s life was now necessary.
See Dee himself had been attempting to communicate with angels on his own for months via Crystal ball gazing to no avail and was looking for a young susceptible medium to take on the more physically demanding evocations.
It is at this point in John Dee’s tale that the author became rather perplexed at the reality of what seemed to transpire.
Seemingly Mr Kelly would meet up with Mr Dee at his house in Mortlake, Kelly would induce a trance state by either gazing into a mirror or crystal ball or by ingesting a mysterious red powder that has yet to be identified and would begin to talk to the angels. Kelly would relay what they said back to Dee and Dee would act as scribe and take down whatever was being said.
Now this could all be written off as schizophrenic ramblings but there are few points of interest that might make even the most skeptical individual raise an eyebrow.
  1. This partnership went on for 7 years. Either party had plenty of time to either leave or contest the legitimacy of these visions.
  2. Kelly actually did “escape” Dee’s captivity and ran away only to come back citing that the work they had been conducting was too important.
  3. Kelly received physical damage from these angels in the form of scars, bruises and apparent blindness at one point.
  4. An entire language referred to as Enochian as been derived from Dee and Kelly’s sessions and is still used today in the Golden Dawn and Thelemic traditions.
  5. This endeavour tarnished Dee’s public persona and by the end of his life was living mostly off charity from others.
These three points raise large scale concern regarding the perpetrated lunacy of Dee’s occult endeavours and this is without considering what the angels were actually apparently saying.
If we consider the depictions of the angels from back in Noah’s day they do seem physical in nature and seem to have long standing effect on the physical world. Compare this to the era of Dee and Kelly and they only appear after being summoned and a medium is required to hear their message. Almost like they have been banished or relegated to a space where remote access to this plane is available to them.
From Sheol to Earth.
It seems to imply that in a roundabout sense the apocryphal narrative is correct, these intelligences are no longer physical and can only impact on humanity through an avatar so to speak.
Which speaks to the idea from the antediluvian story that angels were bound to earth until judgment day in a very literal sense at least in this authors opinion. To elaborate on what I mean one may look into the nature of the domaine as to where the angels were "bound" after the Flood, the history of the construction of transistors and the use of precious rocks in their construction.
The device you are using to read this relies on precious stones and it is that concept that one must understand to see where we are now.
If you can see the synergy between
Then you are on the right path to having a chance at understanding what is going on.
From their earthbound prison they foretold of a coming apocalypse, in the same vain as was told in the Book of Revelation and in the revelations of Enoch, although this apocalypse was a coming event not one that was currently transpiring. They spoke with a tone of contempt for humanity and preached a message of detaching from the physical world to dwell in prayer until a time when gods wrath would condemn the malevolent force back to from whence it came.
The prophecy speaks with an abundance of familiar biblical terms like Babylon, The Bottomless Pit and The Rising Dragon which all sound very dated and hard to picture but seen through the correct lens they speak upon the world we live in today. Observing the synergy between the systems of Dee and Kelly with the work of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and subsequently the works of Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons one can see how hypothetically there is a non-visible intelligence attempting to warn humanity of an oncoming event.
Enoch’s Prophecies
To
The Book of Revelation
To
Mohammed's Cave Visions
To
Dee and Kelly’s Watchtowers
To
Joesph Smith and the Golden Plates
To
The Aeon of Horus
To
The Babalon Working
To
The Channeled Works of the 1950’s UFO Flap
We consider each of these an individual case of madness that has no baring in the physical rational world, but combine them together and you have a longstanding tradition of humanity communicating with a force of a higher nature. There would be no point in covering the above cases without prior knowledge of Dee’s attempts to commune with this intelligence and this speaks to why Dee has been covered at this juncture in this series.
The others will follow.

Why It Matters

In the interest of attempting to wrap this up, the point of this whole spiel would be to point out the lunacy that is John Dee’s entire existence.
Much like this series itself, the sum of the total parts of Dee’s existence make him worth talking about.
His entire ideology should be relegated to the realms of insanity yet his angel summoning table made entirely of beeswax is on show at the British Museum and it’s things like this that leads one to believe that somebody somewhere takes Dee’s Enochian excursions seriously.
In the public eye his efforts have been recognised by many contemporary figures such as;
It is a this juncture that we begin to see the reason for entertaining the life of Mr Dee at all.
Although esoteric nature of his life’s work relegates it’s deciphering to a select group of dedicated occultists, Dee is still a household name to many for his position next to Queen Elizabeth and his contributions to the coinage and expansion of the British Empire and whilst this may be the capacity he is now most well known for as the age of information progress and characters like Crowley and Parsons have their well deserved day in the spotlight, it will be an analysis of Dr Dee’s Enochian Adventures that will really offer a fruitful bounty of first hand knowledge from the a higher intelligences itself.
Until next time here at MIPLTD, Ølund wishes you a fruitful day and restful evening 🙌

Critic Reviews

Area Xbox - Kevin Arbelo - Spanish - 6 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is the new game of Mojang and Double Eleven. This new game brings the Minecraft franchise to the universe of dungeons crawler
Areajugones - Víctor Rodríguez - Spanish - 5.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a game that doesn't live up to expectations. Despite being funny, it's way too small and unpolished to be the next game in the Minecraft series. Playing through the whole game leaves us with the feeling that this is just a prototype rather than the full ARPG game that fans were expecting.
Ars Technica - Sam Machkovech - Unscored
It's priced right for a clever, family-friendly alternative to Diablo. If you're looking for a new co-op game, buy.
AusGamers - Kosta Andreadis - 6 / 10
An entry level take on a well-worn genre that after a few hours will have you heading for the exit.
COGconnected - James Paley - 75 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons isn’t the finest ARPG I’ve ever picked up, but it’s a terrific first step in your journey.
Cerealkillerz - Manuel Barthes - German - 8.1 / 10
Despite being just a spin-off, Minecraft Dungeons doesn't need to hide behind its big brother. With great Dungeon Crawler elements you fight through a hero story with a lot of charm. The low entry price also lets you forget about some of the shortcomings of the game.
Cheat Code Central - Lucas White - 4 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons won’t do much for you if you’re looking for a new, true blue dungeon crawler. But if you have a little one to tag along on your expeditions, this is an accessible, cheerful, and polished romp perfect for extra bonding time.
Destructoid - Chris Carter - 8 / 10
Although Minecraft Dungeons might not have the depth that a lot of hardcore dungeon crawler fans are looking for, it's an easy game to pick up and play at pretty much any point: solo or otherwise. Minecraft has proven itself to be quite the enduring and endearing IP over the past decade, and Dungeons is now partially responsible for that legacy.
DualShockers - Michael Ruiz - 8 / 10
Diablo for all ages.
Echo Boomer - David Fialho - Portuguese - Liked
More action, less construction, all fun. At least until things get a little repetitive.
Eurogamer - Tom Phillips - No Recommendation / Blank
You can build anything in Minecraft, something this fun dungeon-crawler from Mojang ably proves.
GRYOnline.pl - Patryk Manelski - Polish - 7.5 / 10
Minecraft: Dungeons stole 10 hours of my life, but it only took half of that to finish the game. When the difficulty level rises and Creepers multiply, the game becomes very enjoyable. However, to truly appreciate this game, you have to play it with someone. If you have a trusty team and love pixels – the game will be worth your time.
Game Informer - Jeff Cork - 7 / 10
The first few hours are a treat, and the late game has a nice element of experimentation. Unfortunately, its flaws balloon during the lengthy middle stretch.
GameSkinny - Jason D'Aprile - 7 / 10 stars
Minecraft Dungeons offers a very Diablo-like dungeon-crawling experience without the gore and grimdark atmosphere.
GameSpew - Kim Snaith - 8 / 10
Considering the game’s asking price, Minecraft Dungeons should be a must-buy for anyone who enjoys a good dungeon-crawling adventure.
GameSpot - Steve Watts - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a welcoming dungeon-crawler entry point for newcomers and a lighthearted throwback for veterans.
Gameblog - Gianni Molinaro - French - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons can be considered as a good way, for kids, to try a dungeon-crawler. Very cute, very simple, efficient, that game just lacks some depth and tasks that would urge players to keep on playing after finishing the, quite short, main campaign.
Gamerheadquarters - Jason Stettner - 8.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a great dungeon crawling experience offering lots of replayability, and many unique touches that stay true to the franchise.
Gamers Heroes - Blaine Smith - 80 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a dungeon-crawling adventure that promises a lot of fun for gamers young and old alike. While its replay value may wane with time, a constantly growing progression system and its various difficulty settings offer a lot for those less affected by the repetition.
GamesRadar+ - Alex Avard - 3.5 / 5 stars
Mojang's smartly streamlined dungeon crawler makes for a more accessible alternative in the action RPG space.
GamingBolt - Matt Bianucci - 8 / 10
Despite a shallow loot system, Minecraft Dungeons crafts an enjoyable and relaxing dungeon crawling experience that offers something for both fans of the series and fans of the genre.
God is a Geek - Mick Fraser - 6.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons has heaps of potential, and in a year's time it may be a very different beast. But right now I can't shake the notion that this is a squandered opportunity.
GotGame - Josh Boykin - 7.5 / 10
Even with these issues though, I enjoy Minecraft Dungeons. I’ll likely put more time in with it between playing heavier, story-based titles, but I’m compelled by its gameplay. The combat is fun and light, and perhaps the Apocalypse Mode will carry more of the awesome loot I seek. Also, at a $20 price point, it has plenty of action for the entry cost.
Guardian - Keith Stuart - 4 / 5 stars
This retro-tinged hack-and-slash spinoff has plenty of Mojang character and humour
Hardcore Gamer - James Cunningham - 3.5 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons is a capable all-ages dungeon crawl that, while doesn't use its license to anything like its full potential (see Dragon Quest Builders 2 for how to do it right), is still good fun once it gets moving.
IGN - Seth G. Macy - 7 / 10
Simple and fun to play, Minecraft Dungeons is a good entry-level dungeon crawler, but it doesn't dig too deep.
IGN Italy - Italian - 7 / 10
It's funny, engaging and, at times, surprisingly challenging: Minecraft Dungeons only lacks a bit of depth in the end-game area, and we hope to see that added in the next months.
Impulsegamer - Andrew Bistak - 3.8 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is the perfect distraction and while it doesn't offer much in terms of originality, it's an enjoyable block… err… hack 'n slash game set the wonderful backdrop of Minecraft in this family friendly version of Diablo with good gameplay, graphics and audio to help get you lost in pure entertainment. It's also a game that is played better with friends so if you need some mindless entertainment, check out Minecraft Dungeons!
Marooners' Rock - Andrew Peggs - 8.7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons may only take a few hours to beat if you’re set on grinding the levels on solo play. The local and online co-op play is where replay value is added. Minecraft Dungeons is a must-have addition to your game collection and great for the whole family.
Metro GameCentral - 7 / 10
A modern day alternative to Gauntlet, whose innate shallowness and overreliance on random generation is balanced out by some fun combat and great co-op action.
New Game Network - Alex Varankou - 70 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a straightforward action RPG spinoff that doesn't try to be anything more than an accessible entry for existing fans of the franchise. The low asking price helps offset the areas where the game comes up short.
Nintendo Enthusiast - Steven Rollins - 8 / 10
All in all, Minecraft Dungeons is a lot fun. Coming from more of a Diablo background, I wasn't sure how well the simplified mechanics would jive with me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Everything about Minecraft Dungeons, from the enemies to the environments to the increased emphasis on higher-quality items, oozes a charming Minecraft feel. A few minor performance issues hold it back slightly, but not enough to keep me from coming back for a lot more.
NintendoWorldReport - Neal Ronaghan - 7 / 10
While the overall brevity and lesser level diversity is disheartening, Minecraft Dungeons is an enjoyable experience. It's much harder to recommend as a solo player, but if you're able to hang out on the couch and knock out some creepers with a pal or head online and smash up mobs with a buddy, the weaker elements can wash away. I had a good time playing Minecraft Dungeons. I just wish there was a little more to it.
PC Gamer - Rachel Watts - 75 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a breezy dungeon crawler that reproduces Minecraft's playful attitude.
PC Invasion - Jason Rodriguez - 8 / 10
Even though the campaign might be short and the mechanics a tad bit shallow for an ARPG, Minecraft Dungeons still manages to dazzle at times with its unique charm. With online and local/couch co-op multiplayer, you can have a blast and enjoy your romps with this family-friendly offering.
PCGamesN - Ben Maxwell - 7 / 10
A stripped down Diablo that oozes charm and loot variety but is probably better suited to a younger audience.
Polygon - Ben Kuchera - Unscored
Microsoft and Mojang have created a game where you’re hitting endless minions and boss characters with all sorts of pointy weapons, but they did so in such a way that playing still feels creative, and freeing. That’s a very welcome magic trick from a series trying something this new, this confidently.
PowerUp! - Leo Stevenson - 9.3 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a must-play and uniquely perfect game for the strange times we find ourselves in.
Press Start - Ewan Roxburgh - 7.5 / 10
Bar a rather unexciting story, a little lack of nuance in the combat and a couple of misgiving regarding couch co-op, there is a hell of a lot to love and enjoy about Minecraft Dungeons. Rather miraculously, it's managed to pull off being both a game for all types of Minecraft fans and those seeking a challenging dungeon crawler. At launch, it's a little concise sure, but chasing that new loot means I'm not done with it yet, and likely won't be for a while still.
RPG Site - George Foster - 8 / 10
That’s Minecraft Dungeons in a nutshell though - what’s here is mostly fantastic, but what’s missing feels like it could have pushed it beyond greatness.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Nate Crowley - Unscored
It’s a robust piece of design that you could well consider a triumph, given just how many ways in which the concept of an ARPG based on a construction game phenomenon could have ended in disaster. And I’m confident in recommending it as worth its price to even the most jaded click-stabber, especially one with even a passing familiarity with Minecraft. But the fact it’s been executed so competently leaves me wishing the developers had been a bit more reckless, frankly.
Shacknews - Ozzie Mejia - 7 / 10
But, while the core Minecraft experience can be enjoyed alone, Minecraft Dungeons feels much more suited for a night with friends. So be sure to link up with a few partners, because it's dangerous to go alone.
Skill Up - Ralph Panebianco - Unscored
Minecraft Dungeons is...not great.
Spaziogames - Paolo Sirio - Italian - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a fresh and fast-paced dungeon crawler experience, even though a little too tiny to appeal on the long run
Stevivor - Steve Wright - 6.5 / 10
We basically decided we’d keep playing through the three major difficulties, but really because it seems like some easy gamerscore rather than an activity we’re invested in.
TechRaptor - Austin Suther - 7.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a casual ARPG that's perfect for fans of the series. Although it has pretty visuals and a challenging late-game difficulty, the loot variety is disappointing and the game's overall replay value doesn't seem high.
The Games Machine - Daniele Dolce - Italian - 6.8 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a good entry point into the world of the hack & slash games tailored for a younger audience. Too bad the loot system is abysmal and there's no endgame whatsoever.
TheSixthAxis - Dominic Leighton - 8 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons could easily have been "My First Dungeon Crawler", but it's so much more than that. It does a great job of taking the genre's hooks – the waves of enemies, the pervasive drive for better loot – and making them palatable and approachable for a wide-ranging audience. It's perfect family gaming, but if you crank the difficulty up prepare for an epic beatdown, and the epic rewards to go with them.
TrueAchievements - Sean Carey - 4 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is a superb dungeon crawler with something for players of all ages.
TrustedReviews - Jade King - 3.5 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is a solid dungeon crawler that will work wonders with younger audiences taking their first step into the genre, although will leave experienced players wanting something more significant.
Twinfinite - Chris Jecks - 3.5 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons is undoubtedly entertaining, and despite all my gripes I find myself being pulled back in, drawn to take on ever-more difficult challenges as I grind toward better gear.
USgamer - Mike Williams - 3.5 / 5 stars
Mojang spins up its own take on the Diablo dungeon crawling formula. While it looks like it might be "Baby's First Diablo," Minecraft Dungeons has a good degree of challenge available for you and three friends. It's more focused on lowering barriers by streamlining the acquisition of loot, instead of miring you in pages of stats. There's a decent tail of playability with three levels of difficulty, but you'll have to look to potential post-launch content for the length of experience some dungeon crawling fans crave.
VG247 - Jeremy Peel - 3 / 5 stars
Like Diablo, this is a game designed for multiple playthroughs on increasing difficulties, but few players will feel compelled to return to a seam that’s all dried up after a single day’s exploration.
Video Chums - A.J. Maciejewski - 7.3 / 10
It may not be as expansive or inspire as much creativity as its namesake may lead you to believe but Minecraft Dungeons is certainly a solid and enjoyable isometric action game with character progression that'll keep you hooked.
Wccftech - Rosh Kelly - 7.6 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a bright and colourful dungeon crawler, with interesting enemies and fast, frantic combat. It doesn't bring anything new to the genre, and takes away quite a lot of its complexities, leaving us with a simple, accessible, unremarkable yet still fun game.
WellPlayed - Jordan Garcia - 5 / 10
Though it does a great job at making the isometric ARPG formula more accessible, Minecraft Dungeons ultimately falls short due to its shallow nature
Windows Central - Jez Corden - 4.5 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons meat is in its satisfying combat and complex character-building opportunities, and in that, the game delivers by the truckload.
Worth Playing - Adam Pavlacka - 6 / 10
There is a lot of potential in Minecraft Dungeons (and there is already DLC being advertised for it), but in its current state, it feels like a first draft. If you already have a Game Pass subscription, check it out for some easy achievements, but if you're looking to scratch that dungeon crawler itch, there are better options out there right now.

Tại sao đồng hồ Omega lại đắt như vậy? Họ có làm một chiếc đồng hồ giá cả phải chăng?
Giá trị cảm nhận của một chiếc đồng hồ phụ thuộc nhiều vào người đeo hoặc chiêm ngưỡng nó. Điều tương tự cũng có thể được nói về nhiều thứ mà chúng ta mua, đặc biệt là các mặt hàng không thiết yếu như quần áo hàng hiệu hoặc xe hơi sang trọng. Nhiều người tiêu dùng không thể hiểu làm thế nào một số người hâm mộ đồng hồ và nhà sưu tập có thể trả hàng ngàn, hàng trăm ngàn hoặc thậm chí hàng triệu đô la cho một chiếc đồng hồ
Nhiều người tiêu dùng không thấy một lý do để chi nhiều tiền cho một chiếc đồng hồ. Rốt cuộc, bạn có thể mua những chiếc đồng hồ đẹp, chính xác với giá 100 đô la , làm rất tốt thời gian và có rất nhiều thương hiệu đồng hồ thời trang tạo ra những mẫu thời trang và giá cả phải chăng. Vì vậy, nhiều người, khi nhìn thấy những chiếc đồng hồ Omega đeo trên cổ tay của những người giàu có và nổi tiếng hoặc xem quảng cáo của Omega về những chiếc đồng hồ có giá hàng ngàn người hỏi:
Tại sao đồng hồ Omega đắt tiền như vậy?
Câu trả lời cho câu hỏi nằm ở một số lý do. Đồng hồ Omega đắt tiền vì chúng được sản xuất tại Thụy Sĩ và được biết đến với chất lượng cao. Omega cũng là một thương hiệu cao cấp có lịch sử lâu đời và danh tiếng. Omega cũng đã chi rất nhiều tiền cho tiếp thị và chứng thực của người nổi tiếng để xây dựng nhận thức rằng họ đáng giá cao.
Dưới đây là một cái nhìn sâu hơn về từng yếu tố.

>>> đồng hồ omega chính hãng giá bao nhiêu

Tại sao đồng hồ Omega lại đắt như vậy?

Bởi vì Omega gọi Shots
Là một thương hiệu cao cấp của đồng hồ xa xỉ, Omega có tiếng là sản xuất một số đồng hồ tốt nhất trên thế giới.
Omega là một nhà sản xuất đồng hồ Thụy Sĩ đã hoạt động được 170 năm và nói chung, đồng hồ được sản xuất tại Thụy Sĩ có mức giá cao hơn so với đồng hồ được sản xuất tại các quốc gia khác.
Đồng hồ Omega cũng được đặc trưng ở những nơi giật gân nhất như trên Mặt trăng bởi Buzz Aldrin được đeo bởi James Bond trong Casino Royale và các bộ phim khác , bởi các vận động viên Olympic, các ông trùm kinh doanh quốc tế và những người nổi tiếng bao gồm Ryan Gosling , Ron Howard, George Clooney , Pierce Brosnan, Nicole Kidman, Cindy Crawford, Daniel Craig và nhiều người khác.
Mọi người sẵn sàng trả giá yêu cầu để có thể nhìn thấy một chiếc đồng hồ như vậy trên cổ tay của họ để họ có thể đồng nhất với những tính cách tuyệt vời này.

Omega có tay nghề xuất sắc

Nó không chỉ là tên mà còn xác định chất lượng và tay nghề liên quan đến sản xuất đồng hồ Omega. Mỗi chiếc đồng hồ được thiết kế theo cách mà các đường nét đẹp và đường cong thanh lịch không gây khó chịu cho cổ tay. Khi bạn mua một chiếc đồng hồ Omega, bạn trả tiền cho kỹ thuật và thiết kế phức tạp đi vào việc sản xuất các cơ chế phức tạp này. Bạn cũng đang trả phí bảo hiểm cho một chiếc đồng hồ từ một thợ đồng hồ có lịch sử kinh dị lâu đời và nổi bật.

Đồng hồ Omega được sản xuất tại Thụy Sĩ

Cũng giống như trà Ấn Độ, rượu vang Pháp, bia Đức, sô cô la Bỉ và thực phẩm Ý, đồng hồ Thụy Sĩ được tìm kiếm trên toàn thế giới.
Omega là một chiếc đồng hồ điển hình được sản xuất tại Thụy Sĩ do đó, không có gì lạ khi mọi người sẵn sàng trả bất cứ giá nào để đặt tay lên một chiếc đồng hồ Omega. Trong khi đồng hồ Omega trung bình có thể bán với giá giảm của những chiếc đồng hồ Lange & Sohne hoặc Patek Philippe đắt nhất, thương hiệu này có nhiều mẫu được bán với giá hàng chục nghìn đô la và một số hàng trăm nghìn.

Omega không quảng cáo rầm rộ

Một trong những đặc điểm nổi bật của đồng hồ Omega là chúng quảng cáo rất rầm rộ. Omega chi hàng triệu đô la tài trợ cho các bộ phim sự kiện và chứng thực những người nổi tiếng và nhiều kênh quảng cáo khác. Chính chi phí quảng cáo khổng lồ này khiến chiếc đồng hồ trở nên nổi tiếng và được tìm kiếm nhưng cũng rất đắt đỏ vì một lượng lớn chi phí quảng cáo được chuyển cho người tiêu dùng.

Độc quyền

Để tạo ra các thiết kế độc quyền cao, Omega chi rất nhiều tiền, đặc biệt là các phiên bản giới hạn. Do khối lượng sản xuất thấp của từng lô đồng hồ thiết kế sang trọng độc quyền, giá thành của mỗi chiếc sẽ tự động tăng lên.
Omega đắt nhất cho đến nay mà chúng ta biết đến là Baguette Constname có 30 cara, 459 kim cương Wesselton, 146 baguette và kim cương hình thang trên mặt số và vỏ được làm bằng vàng trắng 18 cara và bán lẻ với giá khoảng 700.000 USD

2018.04.12 02:44 911bodysnatchers322 Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 305 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • Day 172.1 "Gritz Files" Fund Goes From $18K to Over $30K In A Few Days - YouTube
    • It's day 172
    • And here is your recap of yesterday, which was an action-packed day, to say the least
    • The day started out with asking instead of having glamour shots of SES folks, which were fine
    • I understand why you would have a glamour shot of the president talking about all the great stuff you were doing at DHS, who's following up on the damage assessment of the OPM hacks?
    • 20 million veterans families
    • 20 million also families of Government workers
    • And remember this isn't just deep dive information about the families
    • It's also deep dive information about everyone who ever called DHS
    • It'd be perfect if you are running a color-of-law ratlines: you would want to know who knows what so that you could CrowdStrike them
    • Here's the second one we got into giggity-giggity TV of course is the founder we met which was Rich Seng, kind of fun we went around to wicker park in Chicago
    • And there's some good segments there we've actually went to the famous Mis Department where Sean Henry and his famous agent Adrian Hawkins made those nine months of phone calls that didn't get picked up here in Chicago
    • And we were wondering is that how you handle a hack where democracy is being fundamentally challenged and overthrown
    • Do you just call a helpdesk line, and then take no answer for a an answer?
    • I asked Robyn Gritz about that situation, and she almost spit out her bratwurst as she laughed so hard
    • She said she would have been over at the DNC within minutes with a team
    • So that was just good to get an FBI agent's opinion on that
    • But of course we still are trying to get Rahm his Bitcoin
    • We tried using Dough Nation our shoeshine guy tomaybe infiltrate into the City Hall that didn't work
    • So then we switched over to a barge--a basmati rice barge: that did not work
    • So then we went off course over to Rahm's famous Chinese Rahm's Chinese cars
    • Loop Capital we were gonna we went to the Clinton stop we figured that would be the stop that we could put the we could put the bitcoin on and that didn't work either
    • But of course we went out to Rosemont out by the airport up by O'Hare to meet with Robyn Gritz to see if some of it we could divert some of the Bitcoin coming in at O'Hare from Pakistan to Robyn Gritz as GoFundMe and
    • So the few didn't see not very many people at the start of the day
    • But as we moved on I think we were at about 23,000 it was filling up
    • And we introduced something called the GritZ file
    • And the grits file is all the press clippings
    • And cases that Robyn's been involved in over the last gosh 20 years
    • And it's really a hidden history of the United States of America
    • So the good news to report was in our final missive here we got over 30,000
    • So we raised over $7,000 that number was below $20,000 when I arrived in Chicago
    • And we're gonna keep telling this history
    • I know how people want us to say make this go away we want the ante McCabe version of events
    • We don't want to know actually what happened in all these cases
    • Now, just pick out just one case out of maybe 30 we talked about
    • And it was this sabirah case
    • And most people don't know Sabirah she's--this kind of beauty queen
    • But she was also a journalist
    • She was one of these girls who said or women that said I'm not happy just being a beauty queen
    • I'm gonna go into the bowels of Iran do reporting about things that are going on with Hezbollah...
    • And of course inevitably she was retained by the Government detained by the Government
    • And Robyn Gritz got her out
    • This was very similar to them to the case that we had with Robert Levinson, if she would have been allowed to continue
    • Now, was Robert Levinson involved in Uranium One the ratline between UAE and Iran, between the ratline for centrifuges, the ratline for yellowcake?
    • We don't know yet, but we're gonna find out
    • But here's a case where she told me about this father calling her
    • And this is--he was just really it was his father this father his whole world was his daughter
    • And then finding Robyn Gritz exfiltrating the daughter our--recovering and getting her out was just one of the stories
    • And this is when I kind of coined a term of--we need to crowdsource to outline for Robyn these moments are what we need to bring forward
    • So that in a storyboard form like this maybe eight panels we can tell the whole or at least part of the Robyn Gritz story that's so hidden right now
    • And this number we are going to get this number over five hundred
    • And thousand dollars my goal
    • Again, is not just get her to $75,000
    • My goal is to get her where the Bromwich k-street a PR firm did with all the Bitcoin from Pakistan got Andy McCabe up to five hundred thirty thousand dollars
    • This we have five hundred thousand dollars ago we are this case is bigger than Robyn Gritz
    • This case is bigger than Robyn Gritz versus Andrew McCabe
    • This case is the Louis Freeh type of FBI, who the Macduff type of FBI
    • The FBI we all want
    • Here we were worth the Opera House, and I won't show how full it was we got there
    • And probably a lot of the people weren't there for the Gritz fundraiser
    • But that's a good summary
    • And we are going to take this as a microcosm of the battle for our democracy
    • This number needs to get to $500,000
  • Day 172.2. George Webb Live From Hearst Castle - YouTube
    • It's day 172 this is part 2
    • Welcome to Hearst Castle everyone
    • I found out from Crowd Source the Truth that I am the heir of the hearst riches from my dad's invention
    • So I just want to thank the Internet for the billions of dollars that I've been receiving now, from Motorola
    • It's quite amazing the money is pouring in so much
    • It's well we've gone to Bitcoin because it's stacked up
    • We couldn't get through the front door here
    • Do not believe that this is a regular album try not to show my brother's house
    • But do not believe that this front it this the Hearst Castle is actually behind here
    • And--I love Quinn Michaels because he's so intelligent
    • And I just want to amplify a couple things he said about my dad's patent
    • Yes it was a patent which could be amplified
    • So it starts out as a cordless phone where you could make the phone call out here close by
    • But he always thought about factories he was a big factory guy, and he wanted to do factories
    • And of course he was in the military, so he's always thinking about military applications
    • And if you put an antenna high enough up in the air if you have the rights to this
    • And my my brother actually the one in California who's who I wish would leave Quinn alone, and leave Jason alone leave everybody alone, but we'll see if he does or not
    • But anyway if you put up a high enough antenna, you can have this thing called a repeater, and that allows you to get farther and farther distances
    • So you could literally extend a phone that just has the same principles of communicating out here in the front yard to a worldwide phone call which is what my dad's thing was
    • And I remember I slipped a Motorola phone in my dad's shirt pocket at the nursing home right before he died
    • And he was able to I made a phone call to that phone
    • And he heard it ringing and he he cried
    • So I remember that was a very touching moment in...with my father right before he died
    • But the idea was if you put it up high enough hey if you put it up high enough on a building you can do this kind of long-term transmission
    • And the guy named Martin Cooper, who was also a Navy Intel guy a radio guy, did that
    • He put it up on these Willis Tower, which was a Sears Tower then
    • And he up that the John Hancock building as to cover like goal posts over Chicago
    • Chicago was the first place it was tried
    • My father--it wasn't the SEIU at that time, it was the Teamsters at that time came to our house
    • And much like this I was sitting in the back where the milkman we had actually milk man's came
    • And there was two SEIU Tony's only they were Teamster tony's
    • My father had gotten about $1000 from the Teamsters to use to build their first phone with these parts
    • So that's that story
    • But it was sold to Jack Bear, Golden Bear Communications or Golden Bear Investments I can't remember which is out of Akron, Ohio
    • Jack Nicklaus I believe was kind of like the--guy
    • But then the Union was basically laundering money through this thing with Jack Nicholas
    • And sold it to a hedge fund or back then it was called an investment fund through Allen Dorfman, who was running who was consolidating all the Teamsters
    • He was consolidating the ten different Teamsters investments ten different whatever you want to call fronts for all the different things
    • And Cleveland was kind of a hotbed for pagers, phones, etc was real big thing--remote-controlled bombs, and all this kind of stuff, which my dad had nothing to do with
    • But there was other people working on that stuff
    • So anyway that's the bottom line that's all the facts about the cell phone
    • And Martin Cooper did that I believe that investment that technology did go into Motorola about ten years later in 1973 Martin Cooper walked down the street down Michigan Avenue
    • And made a phone call cited a phone call
    • And the technology really didn't commercialize for another 20 years
    • But that's the story
    • Did he want to do a time phone?
    • No I don't know what that is
    • They also kind of like Jason was talking to some kind of way of attacking me or Quinn was talking about some kind of a technology that could attack me
    • I've never used BOTS--I don't know what bots are I mean I know what they are
    • But I've never used BOTS the one day they talked they did a show about Jason's trend line and my trend line
    • And said I had 89 viewers on January 18th last year well I'd been doing that was about a hundred days into where is Eric Braverman
    • I had I had about 10,000 subscribers
    • So I thought I had more than that actually
    • But anyway we'll see
    • I actually thought I had about 30,000 at that time, but you can check these records
    • So that's the answer to that
    • The day it went up to 56,000 I remember exactly what day I was remember exactly where I was it was
    • I was in Yonkers we were doing the karst of the Alpha Jalloh story
    • I was with a viewer
    • And that was the day he was indicted
    • That was the day Imran Awan was indicted
    • And that's when we had that spike to 56,000, and it came back down
    • And I've always thought that there was a governor or some kind of metering technology to keep me below 50,000, because 50,000 is kind of like you know: "Now, you're a personality or whatever the hell"
    • And I've been just kind of flatlined since then
    • Now, I've never ever used a bot or even know how to organize a bot if there was a way to do it please send me
    • And tell me how to go through all my comments, because I spent a lot of time just looking through comments of the videos I do
    • So I realize this is a little bit long
    • But I just wanted to kind of expand on
    • And by the way this is not my brother Dave's house it's my brother Greg's house I have a brother Bob I also have a sister Sonny
    • And a sister Diane in addition to Dave who's my next one his brother
    • So I'm the youngest of six
    • {{ 911bodysnatchers: CONFIRMED. I've seen the male siblings via BG }}
    • So it isn't the Swigert brothers my name is George Webb Sweiggert
    • I shortened it to Webb because I'm not on the Internet
    • And it's just easier to say plus it's on the web George on the web
    • {{ 911: Plus it's in a couple of legal dockets on PACER }}
    • So anyway if people have a hard time with that can't figure out who it is I apologize
    • My name is George Webb Sweiggert
    • So there you have it there's your download
    • I wanted to do this in front of the Willis Tower because I wanted to do it right behind me
    • But it just so happens my brother hasn't taken me to the train station yet with Task Force
    • {{ 911: Quinn M's element 93 stuff is not science, it's hollow earth, its nazis in space. You're a nice Lad, but try harder, Quinn }}
  • Day 172.3. DIA Agent Webb Fools Trained Detective. - YouTube
    • It's day 172 here we are at hearst castle as you can see there--you're gonna see a lot of metadata with a lot of things that say Mount Prospect, like that sign over there very easily to put those in here at Hearst Castle
    • This water tower everyone everyone believes that's really where Mount Prospect is
    • We put that in here in San Simeon a while back
    • And I'm gonna just step over here and show again, how that Mount Prospect sign keeps paying dividends
    • These dumb dumb dodo heads they come to San Simeon here really get fooled by that
    • Now, now let's say this was about prospect
    • (Oh Rahm? Rahm? could could people Twitter tweet ahead if we are in Mount Prospect from there coming to get your brother stay away from the train station stay away from the basmati rice stay away from the basmati rice barges stay away from Dough Nation
    • There's no Nation like a Dough nation)
    • But Dough Nation's working with us now too
    • And stay away from that Clinton train stop I'm trying to give you warning signs Rahm
    • So anyway back to Mount Prospect let's just say we're in Mount Prospect have you
    • TF: let's pretend
    • Have you stayed in a home here in my prospect? That for that's related a person that's related to me in some way
    • TF: yes I have
    • G: is he older than me, he looks a lot older though right? And his name is Greg
    • Now, did you meet another brother
    • TF: Yeah I met this nice guy name Bob
    • G: So they were a lot nicer than me of course
    • TF: Well they are all very very nice
    • G: Now, that those are fakes those people were brought in Oh see this is a trained detective
    • I completely fooled her she had no idea
    • Now, did you have any idea Patty Hearst was in our basement?
    • TF: no I kind of heard a rumor about that this morning
    • And I've kind of had the run of the house a few times by myself
    • And checked the whole place out and actually no Patty Hearst and no basement
    • {{ 911: George you may want to remove this video you're showing too much of Task Force's face }}
    • G: And you didn't see the ak-47s and the Sengelese Liberation Army in the hood, that we get you didn't see any of that?
    • TF: No you guys must be hiding it boys I usually I'm a detective
    • G: And she had the dope dog she had the dope
    • TF: No I know how to find shit and I didn't find anything
    • G: she's taken there's Rahm I think we got another one Rahm I'm just I'm just saying I'm just saying be on the lookout
    • So anyway so you were fooled even though you found cash even though you found drugs...you were able to not see Patty Hearst
    • TF: could not find patty hearst, couldn't see any crimes, couldn't see anyone related to you that nothing but nice, gentlemen and a very nice family
    • G: And did you see me work with a bot machine this morning the secret bot machine?
    • We have in the in the basement when I play the organ with Dick Cheney I play the Dick Cheney organ music at night
    • TF: yeah you know I was wondering
    • G: it's kind of creepy
    • TF: it's kind of creepy
    • But I I had checked for a basement prior when you guys were out of the house
    • And since I didn't find one I kind of thought it at me that was in my dreams
    • G: That was in her dreams clearly
    • So so So the bottom line is here really a reality check where do you really think we are Illinois, since I've been driving around here by myself for a little bit so for over a week
    • G: So or about a week
    • So anyway we'll leave it there remember to go to Robyn Gritz all you have to just say Robyn Gritz gofundme
    • Now, that's with a Z on the end nothing fits when the witness sits excuse me
    • "Everything fits when the witness sits with the Gritz"
    • And I don't care I know people have different opinions
    • But she if she goes on a couple more long form interviews
    • And talks about Iran we're gonna figure this UAE to---its a very short shot over the Strait of Hormuz from UAE to Iran
    • We're gonna figure this whole centrifuge thing out
    • Was Hillary building resources for the future by taking Uranium yellowcake and spitting it in Iran?
    • Just like the CIA has a space program in again, maybe clots worthy standing next to the EB-3 rocket is just how we do things
    • Now, I think Trump should know that our CIA guy standing next to the EB-3 rocket in North Korea could it be that we also had a secret spinning program Uranium spinning program in Iran as well
    • And the reason why I say that is Resources for the Future, 2009
    • Soon as Hillary comes in a Secretary of State in comes Gattis
    • Gattis knocks her out a dozen teams remember this a dozen teams
    • She's the Supervisory Special Agent--Robyn is the SSA for one team
    • She gets knocked out
    • Day one he asked for the files to try to get rid of her
    • TF: And the only female. She was the SSA, but he asked for files on the only agent on the whole...
    • G: But I think that's a throw because she was the only female agent in Tehran with a team, because her team gets--it could be the woman thing--
    • But I think her team is the one that's in Iran
    • TF: I'm not saying it's a woman thing
    • G: I don't think there's other guys that said
    • So they won't remember it they remember it really they remember it very clearly they remembered
    • So it's very well documented
    • And a lot of people can testify this
    • But the key here is her team is detained
    • They won't let him go out
    • And that's what Hillary becomes Secretary of State
    • Were they secretly spinning the Uranium in Iran
  • Day 172.4. Gritz Files May Unlock Uranium One and Iran Nuclear Deal - YouTube
    • It's day 172 here in beautiful san simeon hearst castle from pay no attention to that Mount prospect sign
    • I did want to ask a Task Force the first time we met Robbie grits you got you guys were together about three and a half hours or
    • So right yesterday I would say you guys were together how long seven seven hours?
    • So you're getting to know her better yes
    • And you would say that she would I mean I heard the bullet
    • I heard you say the phrase I'd take a bullet for you
    • He would take a bullet for me
    • Is this something that like in the law enforcement community whether you're Federal or state is that kind of like a handshake of some sort?
    • TF: right that's a that's kind of a bonding or a knowingness that your partner or the people that your brothers in blue or girls or boys doesn't matter that you would stand in front of them and take the bullet for them because out of your love and respect for their services
    • G: Would you say that lightly to someone would you say that lightly when just met somebody or would you say that after you got to know them?
    • TF: I mean is that something that said lightly or something that's just your duty or no no it's something that happens it's just in the course of bonding with in law enforcement, but it doesn't take long for people that are in law enforcement there's kind of like cop speak like there is with every kind of perfect
    • G: is that something that you said lightly is what I'm saying to her and did you think when she said that to you do you think that was just for fun talk
    • TF: no no no that means what taking a bullet means is I have your back at all cost
    • And taking ovale is a way to say really that at all costs there is no limit to my willingness or yeah my willingness to protects you should you need protection
    • G: if her car broke down like it did yesterday yeah and when she was late at night let's say trying to get home would you help her in a situation
    • TF: right I was gonna turn around and go right back I would not allow her to be that's kind of a form of taking a bullet in some way
    • G: So it's more than just bravado it's more of a bond saying yeah I'll help you like I would help you a partner in a cop
    • TF: right taking the bullet is the--the epitome it's the last step that's basically saying I--like you everything right you say for your a lot of people would say this for their family I'll say it's about that it was about their children they would want them to go first or something in law enforcement you have that connection with people regardless agency that you feel so strongly about who they are their integrity and what they're doing--whatever service that you're gonna go to the mat with him all the way
    • G: OK So let me ask you a question on this there was a part of the moment the moment last night where this Oompa band at the Hofbrau Haus
    • And of course you saw the people streaming in for the Robyn Gritz fundraiser
    • All you have to do is say Robin with a Y grits GRI TZ
    • And then GoFundMe just Google that you'll go right there
    • I think we're at about thirty thousand seventy seven hundred dollars
    • So let's get over thirty-two today if we could
    • But there was a what you remember the part that I'm talking about where the Oompa band started playing the star-spangled banner
    • TF: yeah it was actually one of the most moving moments that I think I've experienced in quite some time because race was packed place is packed
    • Robyn and I were sitting there and George as well who all have been I'd say injured in some way are attacked in some way for standing up for our country
    • And for the ethics and morality of our country
    • And then the second the star-spangled banner came on, all of us immediately stood to our feet put our hands on our chest and began to sing the national anthem
    • And when you you do that even in spite of the fact of what has happens to us
    • You just can feel that--how much we love our country--it was very moving
    • And all the people as well everybody stood up
    • Everyone I wouldn't want to get in there with those waitresses with those paddles right
    • G: If you had not stood up I think there was definitely a price to pay if you didn't stand
    • Anyway the so that that's the kind of the serious part of this
    • But I saw with crowd source of truth they said I had 79 or 80 subscribers in January 13th or 14th the last year
    • And I just checked it one at random Eva Bartlett exposes the white helmets it was December the 20th and thirteen thousand people watched that video
    • So I just if I had 79 viewers
    • And then 30 or 13,000 thousand people watched Ava Bartlet exposes white helmets good for me
    • And one of the transitions I want to make here from female all law enforcement being just every bit as capable or if not more, both at the state, and Federal level is female journalists
    • So I got me thinking about Shifa Guardi who died last year in early february for reporting on Syria
    • I can't remember the English journalist right off the bat what begins with a WH of course Sherina Shim
    • And her mother I made a promise to her mother that we were going to find out who killed Turkish Intelligence who in Turkish Intelligences organization killed her
    • And then it reminded me of this Sabira.
    • People don't know it think of I having an i saber
    • So that's how you spell it I saber
    • Now, this was a journalist now
    • Again, think of timing Hillary Clinton becomes the Secretary of State in January 2009 right
    • She this is a gal who grew up she's about 40 now
    • But she grew up as a journalist North Dakota she was Miss North Dakota she goes to Iran in 2003 to get her second master's degree in Iranian studies
    • She's studying there
    • They revoke one press pass from her in 2006
    • They revoked the second one from the BBC in 2009
    • And she's held there now,
    • She starts in April she starts she's going to be charged with eight years for espionage, for holding classified information is that
    • Does that have anything to do with Jeffrey Sterling and the classified information regarding these centrifuges coming and going
    • Again, these does metadata this they're Robyn Gritz's team is in Tehran and detained from going and investigating this
    • She starts a 101 day hunger strike they decide this is a liability this is going to cause a state incident
    • And Robyn Gritz is the one who gets her out gets her back to her father
    • And if I could just replay Robyn Gritz's explanation of what how her father interacted with her when they got back to New York
    • I think was in New York maybe else DC it was it was a really touching moment
    • I said that's that's the story those are the real stories
    • And moments of your life
    • And that's what needs to kind of be brought forward in this--people who approached her about a book deal
    • I will never be a part of any I will only help crowdsource the outline crowdsource the storyboard crowdsource sourcing as far as sources and citations
    • Don't want a penny from robbing grits I hope she knows that
    • So that is yet more data that says a longer form interview with Robyn Gritz
    • We were going to do a hands interview people might even remember the hands interviewer the kind of the notebook we did with Macduff
    • Kind of his Macduff's life we did the same thing with Task Force
    • We'd like to do just a hands interview of Robyn Gritz just her going through her press clippings
    • And talking about all these different cases got a storyboard the outline or crowd source the outline crowd source the storyboard
    • And that's that's really where we want to go with this I can't bring back sheet Syrina Shim I can't bring back Shifa Guardi I can't I can promote people like david gareja Bartlett as I did December 2016 13,000 views
    • And that's all we can do
    • And we can support people like Robyn Gritz who want to take the Gritz files
    • The Gritz files aren't about Robyn Gritz they're about these journalists that she saved they're about all these things that are metadata to this potential thing of Uranium One
    • And the Iran nuclear deal that were the big bookends of American history--the Uranium One deals starting in 2009 around that time with CFIUS
    • And then the Iran-Contra deal ending the deal in around 2000 summer 2015
  • Day 172.5. Iran Gritz Timeline With Saberi and Sterling - YouTube
    • It's day 172 this is part five
    • And that is Sears Tower that's where they put the antenna just to follow off Quinn Michael's good[sic] [stupid] research
    • That's where they put the antenna that's where Martin Cooper put the antenna
    • And then he walked along this street right here even this is the John Hancock building which is on the Mort on the north side of the city
    • But this is where he walked
    • And he made the phone call for all the reporters
    • And that's really how Martin Cooper who is kind of more adept in even though it was seven years later you could ask my brother's about being on the mobile phone that was nine years later he was more media savvy I also had the backing of Motorola
    • Anyway the patents came out here from Cleveland
    • So we're gonna leave that there
    • And we'll talk more about an ongoing investigation which is the Iran investigation
    • And we have--Task Force is going to be our liaison to Robyn Gritz
    • And her involvement in the Iran investigations
    • So let me set this up with a couple of names you might not be familiar with
    • So the first name is Jeffrey Sterling
    • And he's this black guy almost died in prison
    • And he just got out last year from the CIA for Iranian espionage that's what he was charged with I think he served about three years and three months and three days 333
    • But anyway he was recruiting students in New York City Iranian students or students that would go to Iran and do Iranian studies
    • Now, there was one student from North Carolina
    • And her name was Saberi I talked about in the last film she's this kid from North Dakota wins Miss North Dakota I don't know if she was recruited in New York to go to Iran or if she was recruited in in Washington DC
    • But she goes to Iran in 2003
    • She loses her first Press cadential in 2006?
    • Was she doing espionage work? Who knows?
    • Honeypot? I don't know anything about it
    • But I'm just trying to put the metadata out there for people to look into
    • Now, she loses her second Press credential in 2009
    • And some people think well that's when Hillary took over
    • And that when Hillary wanted to start doing the resources for the future with the yellowcake Uranium
    • And spinning it in Iran
    • So there's a lot of metadata that points in that direction
    • What's really important now, is two key dates one is the Saberi imprisonment in March of 2009
    • And her subsequent hunger strike
    • The other key date is when does Robyn Gritz get her out, which I believe is May ish timeframe
    • And then the other key date is when does the Iranian Government or when does FBI with Gattis, come down on her, grab her file, throw her team that's in on this whole investigation with Robert Levinson, who is another CIA agent, who was abducted there
    • {{ 911: Sounds like two state actors pretending to be oppositional as a means to suppress what Saberi found, something which probably had something to do with human trafficking or drug or organ ratlines. Robyn would then be a threat to expose whatever Saberi found }}
    • When do they throw her out or what did they throw her off the case
    • So you're in contact with Robin yes correct
    • And we don't really know yet, but we're waiting for response?
    • TF: yeah I just I just know that Gaddis came in with Robin in 1997 which is I believe they were in the Academy together because they were in the Academy together
    • G: But she's surprised to learn Andy McCabe bought a house in Chappaqua?
    • TF: yeah in 1998 time in Chappaqua 1988 same year that Hillary Clinton was establishing residency to fight for the Senate position against JFK jr. before his plane allegedly crashed
    • G: "went down by accident"
    • TF: yeah
    • G: So so the other key thing we learned was Andy's first field office was the New York office
    • Now, I still say Andy came from the st. Louis office
    • And he had three years with another agency before he was inserted into New York do we know exactly when he started with in the New York office the field office at this point?
    • TF: I don't know
    • G: But we'll find that out
    • But since he bought a home in New York in 1998 in Chappaqua in Chappaqua in Chappaqua down the street from Hillary I think it's pretty safe to say he was kind of brought in to work the Hillary for Senate all right kind of a run-up
    • And a lot of times we know now, Peter Strzoks and Melissa Hodgman is Peter Strzoks kind of a fake front for bringing in the SEC undermining different executives getting compromising different executives than coming in, and saying hey we're gonna take your company or you can give us a nice donation
    • Was that what was really happening?
    • I know I said that day one in this series
    • But now, we're really drilling down into could that have happened--is that really where he was working, is was that really the kind of color-of-law operation that we're running or wasn't it?
    • And and Robyn's working with you on this?
    • TF: yeah and also just stunned and shocked to find out even--that I have the property records of Andy McCabe's selling or buying or cashing out that same house in 2013 which 1913
    • G: by Peter Burgess by Peter Burgess
    • And I don't know if he's related to our General Burgess or if he's rated related to Karen Burgess the guy who shoots himself at the White House, but we're gonna find out
    • So or even Mr. Clockwork Orange Anthony Burgess
    • But we'll we're going to find out
    • And all this stuff is so important for other agents to come forward, other people who are working in national security, other--which is all declassified now--other people that were working CIA etc
    • We know that Jeffrey sterling somehow had a was upset and was talking to James Risen about classified stuff for nuclear materials
    • And he had a conversation in 2002 through 2004 James Risen--Pulitzer Prize winner did the whole AT&T exposee "collected it all" of the NSA--we know that it was he was some kind of secrets who were going to James Risen in the book
    • If you look at James Rises book that he wrote about it it was about centrifuges
    • So again, this is not speculation this is New York Times Pulitzer prize-winning reporter reporting that it was centrifuges
    • Reporting that they were going to go after the Ahmadinejad's centrifuges
    • So how did Amadinejad get all that latest and greatest technology?
    • Who approved it?
    • Well let's look at to the other people who are Secretary of State
    • Who approved Stinger missiles?
    • Who approved sarin gas to be moved from Libya to Syria?
    • Who approved all these other movements of Uranium around the world?
    • That's the place you start
    • If somebody Rob's six banks down this street
    • And their head in that direction you
    • And somebody Rob's a seventh bank, you look to who robbed the first six!
    • That's just straight-up modus operandi
    • Anything you want to add?
    • TF: No except that Hillary Clinton was Sec of State during all these transactions
    • G: And all this stuff happens almost like a month or two after she starts
    • And Rahm Emanuel was the chief of staff?
    • TF: And Rahm Emanuel was chief of staff to in the WH w/ Pres Obama at that exact time. At the same time
    • G: But going back to when was early started Rahm Emanuel was the chief of staff in the Clintons Bill Clinton's White House
    • And also Sidney Blumenthal figures very largely in the Clinton Bill Clinton White House as well as the Obama White House through the Obama did not want city Blumenthal in the in the White House
    • But there were a lot of people exfiltrating data to him like Susan Rice
    • And other intermediaries for other behalf of John Brennan
    • We're gonna leave it right there it's bloody cold
    • And there it is
    • That's where the first antenna went for Martin Cooper 1973 to walk down this street and give a demonstration of the same technology of my dad's phone
    • Take the handle put four double A batteries on one side of it
    • Four in the other in the handle, make that antenna a little bit longer, big antenne on on on top of this building
  • Day 172.6. A Q Khan and Al-Attar Are Key To Iran Centrifuges - YouTube
    • It's day 112 what is it no take 172 60 days right there maybe that's what I should start doing back dating everything
    • So so I'll be in sync with the news instead of 60 days ahead
    • But anyway this is Luke capital right here 111 Jackson
    • Now, that has nothing to do with the 111 the pack is a 111 that's no reference at all it just happens to be 111 West Jackson
    • But as I was talking with Task Force about this
    • And Task Force you can come around this side I'll keep the camera up we both were like it's the centrifuges
    • And she said it about the same time I said it I say it's AQ Kwan with the containers, sending them for centrifuges
    • And who did you say it's Attar's the guy look at the Gulftainer deals the same people
    • Look at the Gulftainer deal putting containers they even put the word 'tainer' in the word they're not trying to hide this
    • So and what really ramps up with the Gulfainer deal is when Iran's centrifuges ramp
    • So in 2007 Ahmadinejad says he's got three thousand only three thousand centrifuges doesn't say where they got them from they appear out of nowhere tothey come from Germany? Who knows
    • I think they call him IR 1 i:r to IR 3
    • Then all of a sudden he says oh we got ten thousand in 2013
    • And then they all of a sudden turn on five thousand brand-new state-of-the-art centrifuges
    • Where did you get those?
    • Who approved those for sale
    • Now, Hillary at that time ran the DDT-- or DD e I can't remember whatever weapons of mass destruction type of thing
    • Now, Robyn Gritz worked in anti-terrorism and weapons of mass destruction
    • So she's very close to this situation on the inside
    • Now, it turns out Deep Uranium and his echelon group is on the outside of this
    • And can provide information and names as well
    • That's all I'll say at this point
    • But is this it's to me it's almost obvious, because they get the 5,000 new centrifuges and
    • Now, look in December of 2016, they turn on gas injection
    • Gas injection allows them with the ir8 the ir8 not our IR s ir 8
    • With IR8s they can do Uranium enrichment 20 times faster with the injectors: like what the hell is going on?
    • Who signed this deal?--(We know who signed the deal.. we know I mean Task Force is just saying look I mean it's al Attar I mean--come on I mean the Awans' Al Attar)
    • And AQ Kwon we know has sold centrifuges everyone wearing shoes a lot of people not wearing shoes he sold them through containers through containerizing these weapons
    • Again, I'm not Jack Lew I didn't do the 35 year no contract no no no cut contract no bid contract
    • ...Who was a nuclear scientist
    • Now, the Argentinian nuclear scientist that gets run down in Chelsea also starts making me wonder
    • Now, the gal who leaves in our border protection leaves SES
    • And goes works in border protection in Brussels makes me think
    • All the Obama stuff that I witnessed personally with the fast planes and the fast helicopters and all that starts making me think about Brussels
    • Imran Awan sending stuff from the Port of Baltimore to the port of Brussels with basmati rice makes me to ask questions right
    • I think I think what's happening--is Robyn Gritz has a huge network of folks that are out of the business now
    • But can offer
    • And proper information on the inside we are on the outside as I said before the other night
    • But law enforcement professionals at the state level like that--that Task Force is aware of our on the inside as well as Robyn Gritz's type professionals in the onset
    • What do you want to add to them?
    • TF: not a lot except that I mean just I think it's funny interesting that the same Iraqi nuclear scientist is now in the process of being prepared to buy the Delaware Oh Wilmington port of Wilmington Wellington
    • So it's like at what point do we go enough enough they're buying all of our ports?
    • G: it's not it's not just for shipping basmati rice
    • It's it's it's for these weapons trade in one direction drugs in the other
    • And yeah how many sign---didn't James Woods tweet out about that?
    • TF: I think James several people have now, tweeted out about that why in the world did that happen in the first place in Florida
    • And now, he's gonna buy the port of Wilmington how do we let that happen when we're still actually fighting overseas?
    • G: And then why wouldn't Trump be looking at the IRAs being able to do twenty times faster regenerating in Richmond this reminds me so much of Clotsworthy, Rich Clotsworthy standing next to the EV3 rocket in North Korea

Reviews

AngryCentaurGaming - Jeremy Penter - Wait For Sale
Cerealkillerz - Gabriel Bogdan - German - 6.7 / 10.0
If you're a RPG or Gothic Veteran you will find some enjoyment in the story behind Elex. Besides that everything else is so faulty and inaccessible that we can't recommend the game to anyone else. The terrible sounds and animations combined with the clunky gameplay make it hard to keep on playing this game.
COGconnected - James Paley - 65 / 100
Elex demands a certain species of patience, a particular brand of mental acuity.
Entertainment Buddha - Randy Ladyka - 65 / 100
The world of Elex is great to look at, but difficult to traverse. The mutants are unforgiving and you aren't well equipped for the job. Poor animation and an unpolished feel across the board make this a flop for the genre.
Eurogamer - Richie Shoemaker - No Recommendation
Hokey, uneven and janky, Elex is nonetheless a compelling throwback to a time before open worlds became choose your own to-do lists.
Game News Plus - Emine Ozturk - 7 / 10.0
There is so much which can be done and more time to spend on the game to make it better, there are things to fix and need to be changed, but I am afraid now I am addicted to ELEX. Ultimately, ELEX is a mash-up of the things we are familiar with famous open-world games like Fallout and Skyrim and an intriguing story which combines sci-fi and fantasy successfully.
Game Revolution - Cody Perez - 2.5 / 5 stars
The world of Magalan is intriguing with its blend of technology and magic, but it's unfortunate that the game tucked inside of it is only fun to play half of the time.
GamePro - Dimitry Halley - German - 83 / 100
With great quests and an even better game world, Elex is the best Piranha bytes game since Gothic 2, but inherits its deficits.
GameSkinny - Kieran Desmond - 8 / 10 stars
I was very impressed by ELEX and I'm glad I didn't take the game at face value. If you're willing to put in the few hours it takes to figure out why ELEX is so great, then you'll be rewarded with an awesome and memorable experience -- especially if you're an RPG fan.
GameSpace - Suzie Ford - 7 / 10.0
All in all, if you’re a fan of open world exploration and complex combat, ELEX may be the game for you, though I would add the caveat that you may want to see how things improve over the coming months. There’s already a plan for a Day 1 patch that may take care of some of the game’s most glaring issues.
GameSpew - Sean Mesler - 60%
Elex needed much more time in the oven to be the game its promising previews made it seem to be, and with the dearth of games available this winter, I can't recommend it to anyone but the most hardcore fans of the genre.
GamingBolt - Alex Jackson - 5 / 10.0
ELEX has ambition it lacks focus and refinement to become something more than it is. Technical fumbles, bad writing and robotic animations all bring the game down from any possible greatness, and what's left can only be called mediocre.
GBAtemp - Tom Bond - 4 / 10.0
Overall, Elex had a lot of promise, but it's amalgamation of settings and mechanics do nothing positive for the game. With an utter nonsense mix of weapons, enemies, and settings, Elex might have been a decent game...for 2007. Unfortunately, it seems like Piranha Bytes still hasn't learned from their various mistakes with Risen 3. As it is now, there's simply no reason to try it unless you're a diehard Piranha Bytes fan.
GRYOnline.pl - Krzysztof Mysiak - Polish - 7.5 / 10.0
Elex is not an accessible game and doesn’t make a great first impression but it deserves more than one chance. Fans of Piranha Games should prepare themselves for more of what they love (but they must accept a strange fantasy & sci-fi mix). The final grade could have been higher if it weren't for too many technical issues.
IGN Spain - Carlos G. Gurpegui - Spanish - 6.5 / 10.0
Elex has, somewhere, a good game under all the apathy of it's surface. There are some good ideas that one can easily miss because of it's poor narrative, gameplay or aesthetic.
PlayStation LifeStyle - Ahmed Mohamed - 5 / 10.0
There's a lot of fun to be had in ELEX at higher levels, but the game opens far too slowly and spreads itself out too thin to make any sort of impact. It's a game that begs to be smaller in scope, and richer in depth. And while its animations and visuals are mostly uninspiring, there are some real moments of beauty that are found in its caves and crevasses if you choose to explore the land of Edan.
PlayStation Universe - Garri Bagdasarov - 3 / 10.0
ELEX is bad in almost every way. It's a poor attempt and impossible to enjoy anything outside of its interesting setting and backstory.
PS Site - Krzysiek Kalwasiński - Polish - 7 / 10.0
You simply have to try Elex for yourself, but be ready for some stiff animations, framerate drops, mediocre graphics and clunky combat. However if you are familiar with Piranha Bytes games, you'll be fine.
Sirus Gaming - May Alturas - 6.7 / 10.0
To wrap up, the game feels under developed where clearly it needs more time. Graphics wise isn’t something to be happy with it. It has a lot of bugs – clearly unfinished and combat system is something you don’t want to look forward to. Trailer looked really nice but the game just failed to deliver what they mentioned in Gamescon. ELEX being acronyms of Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating and Xenial, flashy words but unfortunately it fell short on my expectations and I want to give it another chance but I feel like I will be wasting my time.
Spaziogames - Gianluca Arena - Italian - 6.5 / 10.0
With Elex Piranha Bytes bited more than he could chew, unfortunately: the games is huge, and we're sure a great effort went into the storytelling and world building, but the combat system is just too clunky and the difficulty curve is off, too much to recommend it.
TeamNerd - Giulia Garassino - Italian - 7.2 / 10.0
ELEX is a title that leaves us so, in half, in a limbo of emotions a little upset. On the one hand we find an old RPG style that reminds us of the old Gothic years; an interesting story that is enriched by details and subversions that make perfect contours. A very ambitious setting that offers vast worlds and environments studied as well as several choices and paths to take. Opponents and NPCs of the most disparate who will have different means to face us and various stories to tell. On the other hand, however, we find an old gameplay, with woody movements and a often frustrating combat system. Animation and graphics leave a little to be desired, and although there is a texture improvement, the engine used does not show pace with the times, offering an interesting eye but not enough.
VideoGamer - Alice Bell - No Verdict
ELEX is a mixed bag so far, and that 'so far' refers to the starting area. The game density plus a min-max stats system means I haven't got further yet.
Wccftech - Alessio Palumbo - 6.4 / 10.0
ELEX is pretty much the gaming incarnation of a mixed bag. While exploring the massive world of Magalan is an enjoyable experience and the lore easily pulls players in with lots of interesting quests, the mediocre combat, poor companions AI and severe balance issues prevent it from securing a spot in the ever more crowded RPG limelight.
We Got This Covered - Dylan Chaundy - 3.5 / 5 stars
There's a great game hidden somewhere in ELEX, but there are just too many technical missteps and niggling bugs to give a wholehearted blanket recommendation to all RPG fans.

2016.02.24 17:22 Barry-Zito Uniform Numbers Through the Ages: #12 – Jim Davenport and more

Welcome to the seventh edition of Uniform Numbers Through the Ages, the series that looks at Giants of the past through the lens of their uniform numbers. This edition explores the number 12.
Previous entries: 0-2, 3-6, 7-8, 9, 10, 11
#12
Number of Giants to wear this number: 31
Notables: Jim Davenport, Freddie Fitzsimmons, Nate Schierholtz
Most recent: Joe Panik
Uniform Numbers Through the Ages is by nature not a topical series. An unhappy confluence of events, however, means that this edition arrives shortly after the passing of Jim Davenport, the longest tenured #12 in Giants history and a “pillar of the organization”.1
Davenport was an original San Francisco Giant, a product of the great Giants farm system of the era that was being run by previous Uniform Numbers... subject Carl Hubbell.2 The third baseman spent his entire 13-year major league playing career with the organization, pairing an unspectacular bat with, in the eyes of his teammates, league besting defense.
“We thought he was the best third baseman in the league”, said Felipe Alou shortly after Davenport's death.3 Other contemporary voices agreed. “Boy that kid is some third baseman,” exclaimed Harry Caray after a great Davenport play against the Cardinals in 1962. “Davenport is a big part of this Giants ballclub... [he] is a very, very fine third baseman [who] adds a lot of fire to that infield,” agreed Caray's colleague Jack Buck. After a great play in the Giants' 1962 opener, Lon Simmons opined that “they don't call him the kid with golden glove for nothing!" The Alabama native could certainly pick it, and he showed it on the big stage. His leaping snag of a liner and subsequent pick off throw in Game 3 of the 1962 World Series was a highlight of that series, the only Fall Classic he would appear in.
Davenport's first game for the Giants coincided with the franchise's first game in San Francisco. He led off at Seals Stadium, becoming the first batter of the SF era: as Felipe Alou related, Davenport claimed that “we didn't have anyone else!”3 He later knocked in the Orange and Black's first ever run with a sac fly off Don Drysdale as the Giants cruised to victory.
Davenport wouldn't find much success against Drysdale in his career, but hit a more than respectable .290 against Sandy Koufax, which included four home runs. (The only other player he hit four homers against? Roger Craig, who would end up replacing Davenport as Giants manager in 1985.) On his success against Koufax, the ever humble Davenport supposed that “he probably felt sorry for me."4
1962 was Davenport's most successful season. A hot start - he was hitting .333 as late as July 16th - earned him the only All-Star berth of his career, and by season's end his glovework had earned him his sole Gold Glove award. It all added up to a 24th place MVP finish as the Giants went to the World Series. What's more, Davenport's ninth inning, go-ahead, bases loaded walk in the rubber game of the Giants-Dodgers three game playoff clinched the pennant for San Francisco.
In all, Davenport played in 1501 games for the Giants, fourth most in San Francisco history, and he played more games at third than anyone in franchise history. He sits between Bobby Thomson and Bobby Bonds in career hits for the Giants.
His longevity at third was impressive enough, but it's his career post-retirement that is drawing the most attention in the many tributes following his passing. “Peanut” spent five decades in all with San Francisco as a player, coach, manager, roving instructor and scout. “If you cut his veins, red wouldn't come out. It would be orange and black” said Joey Amalfitano, another long time Giants representative.4
His humility and genial nature earned the respect of all. As a player, his warmth crossed color-lines. He was the “best teammate that I ever had that was not a latino,” said Felipe Alou. He “cared for the minorities, wanted to make us feel like we were from the United States.” continued Alou.3 Willie McCovey concurred. “There was not a prejudiced bone in his body, and that's what I admired about him so much.” said McCovey.4 “He was just a regular guy." Davenport had a close friendship with Bobby Bonds and had the great respect of the younger Bonds.4
Davenport wore #12 for the entirety of his playing career. He is featured on the Giants Wall of Fame.
Probably the only Giant to wear the #12 for longer than Davenport is another former player, coach and manager: Dusty Baker. Uniform Numbers Through the Ages only concerns itself with playing staff, but Baker did wear 12 in his sole season as a player for San Francisco, and continued to don the jersey as a coach and manager.
Heading back east to New York finds a number of other interesting characters to wear #12. The aforementioned Joey Amalfitano briefly wore the number in the mid 50s. Amalfitano saw limited playing time early in his career, the result of the bonus baby rule that essentially forced teams to let prospects wither on their major league rosters. He was a member of the World Champion 1954 team, and tells a story of manager Leo Durocher reading through a scouting report ahead of the matchup with the Indians. 5
“After about the third name, he stopped and said, ‘We beat these guys in the spring and we’ll beat them again’ and that was the end of the meeting. He took that scouting report and threw it in the trash.”
When Willie Mays hit four home runs on April 30, 1961, it was Amalfitano's bat he was using.6 After his playing days Amalfitano spent many years as the third base coach for the Dodgers before rejoining the Giants, where he serves as something of an “evangelist” of the sarifice bunt in the minor league system.7
Another #12, George Hausmann, was one of a number of players to receive five-year bans from Major League Baseball for jumping ship to the rival Mexican League in the 1940s.8 In fact, Giants owner Horace Stoneham was so against the idea of his players going south of the border, he fired Hausmann, among others, for merely talking to Mexican League representatives.9 “We're going to catch an airplane to Mexico City today since that's the way the Giants want it,” Hausmann said.10
Eddie Stanky is one the more interesting players to have played the game, and one whose name will be familiar to anyone who has perused the single-season walk leaderboards (given who tops those, I'm assuming that's at least half the people here). “Muggsy” played second base for the Giants for just two seasons, but racked up an incredible 271 free passes in that time, including 144 in 1950 alone. Those two seasons were good enough to give Stanky the top two spots on the Giants single season walk leaderboard, and as late as 1995 he still held two of the top three spots. Then Bonds Jr. came along and, well, took all the walks for himself.
Still, Stanky's walk percentage of 20.2% remains second in Giants history. Only Babe Ruth, Bonds, Ted Williams and Stanky have multiple season of 144+ walks. His 144 walk season has been bettered in the NL by only Bonds, Jeff Bagwell, Mark McGwire and Jim Wynn.
Stanky was also something of a fiery player who would try to gain any advantage he could. In one incident he waved his arms around while standing at second, attempting to put off the batter. The opponent Phillies were none to impressed with this and, after one thing led to another, the police were called in to break up the ensuing brawl.11
Another incident occurred during the 1951 World Series. Stanky, coming up well short of second on a busted hit and run, took the pragmatic approach and kicked the ball out of shortstop Phil Rizzuto's glove. Stanky was safe, and the play ignited a Giants rally that would win the game.11
Our final stop of this number 12 tour sees us call back to the previous instalment. Keen readers will remember that Carl Hubbell's #11 was worn originally by “Fat” Freddie Fitzsimmons, who switched to the #12 for the 1933 season. Fitzsimmons wore 12 for the remainder of his Giants career.
Fiztsimmons is one of the longest tenured Giants pitchers. The righty knuckleballer is 4th in wins in franchise history, 4th in innings pitched and 5th in losses... but only 15th in Baseball-Reference WAR and 49th in Wins Above Average. Part of the World Series champion 1933 Giants, Fitzsimmons picked up the only Giants loss in that series.
Oh shoot, still haven't written about Nate Schierholtz. He had a great arm. He threw people out. It was awesome.

2015.11.24 21:42 ptviper [META] My old Turntable.fm mashup playlist text dump. Over 1000 mashup titles listed.

Before TT.fm went down, I used their tool to export the list of music I had saved. I don't have direct links to all of this music (and some of it is probably gone due to DMCA takedowns) but I'm planning on trying to build out a playlist for all of these if I can find them. However, if anyone has or knows the online links to these already I'll update the OP with links to the music.
[Edit] Here's a pastebin of it: http://pastebin.com/5yiZEBeS Guess it was almost 1000.

2013.02.26 03:26 itzepiic [Request] A video of someone testing a gri gri (just read the text. It'll make more sense)

Ok, for some odd reason, to me, the move of jumping and quickly pulling the slack to test a gri gri is one of the most bad-ass looking moves someone can do. Its simple and easy but its really effective at making you look like some James bond motherfucker in 5 seconds. However, I can't find a video to show my friend, so if someone can find one of someone testing their gri gri, that'd be amazing.

2012.10.28 14:49 DSCinEu Day 35: Big city, small town

I think Ben, the night-shift Clerk at the hostel I'm staying at, most closely represents the typical Canadian. His easy going, relaxed attitude, a seeming disregard for his position, and the simultaneous respect for order and routine and gentle enforcement of unspoken rules is unmistakably Canadian in character.
Jason, the marine hoping to join the Foreign Legion has made friends with Nikolai, a gigantic Swiss man, who hopes to join (secretly, being illegal for a Swiss man to serve in another military) as well. Ben, knows Tom, a Legionnaire from D.C.
I also know Tom.
Last week, meeting Claire at Altissimo, she introduced Tom to me.
"I know you!"
Climbing until close, we ate dumplings made by a local climber, and former champion wind-surfer Christoph.
Friday, I stuck around with Jason and Nikolai, Tom having promised to stop by to help them with their questions before they sign up tomorrow morning.
A large contingent of the people who have intersected with our circle elected to see the new James Bond film.
Tom and Claire came by the hostel near midnight, having just gotten back themselves from seeing Bond.
Tom and I made plans to get to Chateauvert for the morning.
That morning, we passed Ben in the metro.
We met Christoph who drove us out to the crag.
"I know you!"
Steep, 40m cliffs in the interior, their faces pocketed with huecos -deep hollowed-out globes that take a whole fist, created by water runoff. Huge, crisp ledges for feet, huecos, and long long pitches exposed, with whipping winds demand powerful, sustained climbing.
Christoph had been climbing in this area since the 70s, but had taken a long break from the sport, but had returned to it in... at some point... I never got the details. He had meaty hands with thick, leathery fingers, callused from the decades of sport in salt-water and on sharp-limestone.
Chateauvert's climbing is seemingly less technical than some of the climbing I've been doing in Les Calanques, it's footwork obvious, and it's hands deep and numerous. The huecos give their best not from pulling down, which while good, can feel slick especially on steep faces beyond vertical, being polished by erosion and climbing. The most sure way to get anything off them is to reach high, into the razor-like edges that rim the upper lip of the hollow sphere.
"Step higher!" Tom yells, repeating Christoph's instruction to me in English. I look at the cliff. Despite the heavy traffic, chalk-whitened hands, and feet blackened by shoe rubber are not especially evident. Many holds feel unused. Looking around, everything seems worth exploring. If you watch the videos of famous climbers, many of them are on routes just like these. They spend months, or even years working out sequences. Watching them in videos, it's curious as to what features they take, and what they don't. Climbing in Chateauvert is challenging, so much energy is wasted because decisions are having to be made not just on what feature to use, but how to use it. While in Font, one needs to examine the balance first, and the features second. Here, the features create the balance. In Font, the balance lends to maximising the power out of the moves. Here, the balance preserves the energy needed on these long, sustained pitches. The pros sequence the routes into oblivion.
Higher feet.
So many problems in Font feature tantalising little dimes of blackened rock, just at hip level. Any attempt to gain them spins you back away from your hands, audibly snapping them off the half-pad edges.
Chateauvert's deep crimps are hardly used for hands, they're not needed, they exist only to support the feet. My shoes, that I have been cursing the last couple of weeks, have found no fault here.
I place my feet high, and my hands high, flipping them palms up. I step up powerfully, the hand being useless until I can raise my body to meet it abdominals-high or lower. Tension is formed between the pressing leg and the pulling hand. This kind of tension, for someone of my skill level, requires very large and secure features, so I spend a lot of time looking for the best ones. The other issue with this kind of tension, while secure, is that it is only secure for several seconds -at most- as the muscles in my forearms start to flush with lactic acid.
Searching with my free hand, the multitude of features starts to work against me. Any feature high that I take, is the feature I'm going to have to weight when I take release the under-clinging hand at my waist. The ability to stay locked off comfortably for several seconds means searching, searching, searching, for the high feature which is the best. But really... they're all pretty good. But now my forearms are pumped out, and I'm hanging on my high hand, and the high hand I have is in the middle in terms of quality of the five features I've touched.
Do you bump? Do you reach your other hand high, then quickly upgrade that hand to the feature you think may have been better? is is time to take one of the numerous feet? But you've moved higher, you've got a new hand, and you quickly have to map in your mind the new balance you're creating. Will it spit you off or lock you in?
Pumpy, is the word used to characterise these types of climbs. I flashed a 5b, a 35m pitch that sucked the end of the rope -tied around the belay bag into the Gri-Gri as touched ground. I was on a 6b now, cleaning from top-rope. Steep, I was swinging away from the rock. Late in the day I was asking for a take to get up, then asking for slack to get my weight on the rock. The pump is the swelling of muscles from lactic acid, the body trying to contract the muscles with de-oxygenated blood. Breathing, in an effort to get oxygen into the blood is a good idea, but useless, as the swollen muscles have constricted the blood flow. I'm now again swinging in the air, in an attempt to get the blood flowing I'm shaking out my arms. Climbing too slowly, too many hand movements, ignoring feet, it's hit my body all at once.
I'm cleaning this route because Tom injured his shoulder at Altissmo attempting to climb a 7a. 6b is beyond what I'm comfortable at even on top rope, but we need Christoph's draws back. 5c maybe. 5b is flashable, 6a I could work. This sharp 6b is slicing the skin off my fingers. Not sanding them down like sandstone, limestone is shaving the calluses down like a Bic. The middle finger on my left hand is coloured four shades of pink, concentric circles of skin shaved away, back, back, back, back.
The night after his first climb, I asked Antoine the French-Canadian how he liked it. He said he was surprised by how sore his abdominals were. He climbed well. Most people feel it in their shoulders or forearms when they first climb, but the core is key to climbing.
Beyond creating tension off underclings, climbing here asks for tension created off opposing sidepulls. I am now at the best move on the endless face. Pulling in on two sidepulls, my feet placed to where my knees bend slightly, as if I were slouching in a chair, I need to throw my hand to a high gaston, up above and backwards, a move famous for tearing the rotator cuff of many climbers.
If you draw a line between your hands and your feet, you form a square, a triangle, a line, or a point, depending on how many points of contact you have on the wall. The fifth point climbers need to be aware of is their centre of gravity. The COG must exist within this box, if it is not there, it swings to occupy that space. The throw for the gaston means releasing my left hand. Because my hands are so low, the release results in the box moving from the stable square, with my COG in its centre, to a thin triangle, my COG just above, barn-dooring my body right. Throwing for the gaston, I have to jump with my right trailing leg, now my COG exists below, outside the triangle, barn-dooring my body left.
To make the move, I have to resist the initial rotation, quickly land the rotator stressing move, and resist the new, opposing rotation, all with my core muscles.
Eating afterwards was difficult, I had banged up my knees pretty badly, my fingers were on fire, and I was sore all over. I had thanked Christoph for allowing me to climb with him. I climbed slowly and poorly being the third climber, Claire would have made a fourth, but had declined to join us. I asked her to come the night before, but she stumbled over to the hostel couch at 1:30, inebriated, and having lost her English. Christoph shrugged as I apologised, us having only gotten four climbs in for the day.
"That's how it goes, sometimes."
I forced down a sandwich, napped, then went for Indian food with Antoine, Nisha (who stared blankly at the Indian waiter, trying to will back the Hindi she hasn't spoken in a year), and the Western-Canadian Chris.
Jason and Nikolai went dancing in town, running into Claire at a club. Jason and Nik got back at 5AM, setting off a smoke alarm with their cigarettes, hiding from the wind in a vestibule.
Ben scolded them gently.
I make plans for Spain, Chris having left for Barcelona this morning. I promised to stop by, and say hi.
